Lets start building woodsheds, and use thtml Wilson's Remarks Now that the first clamor over Secretary of Defense Wilson's "bird dog" comment is passing-, one can put a KUle longed perspective on the affair. President Eisenhower, in coming to Wilson's defense, says he never found him in anj' way "indifferent to human misfortune," as the secretary's critics imply. The President may be right, but it seems clear that Wilson is indeed indifferent when it comes to measuring the impact of what he says in public. He likes the colorful, ga.rney phrase. But too many of his homey little parallels can find no political domicile except the dog house. It does no good to argue, as is being done now, that Wilson's remarks were "taken out of context." If a man says something that makes quotable grist for the opposition's propaganda mill, he can't expect the enemy to preserve the softening glow of "context." Democrats are going to shout Wilson's words from the political platforms all across the land, hut especially in stall's where unemployment bulks fairly large, such as Michigan, Massachusetts, and Ohio. For what Wilson said was thai while he felt sympathy for the jobless he "liked bird dogs (who hunt for their food) better than kennel-fed dogs." Agree with the President that Wilson is not inhumane call this a synthetic issue if you wish. But the damaging quotation remains. A synthetic issue can be every bit as powerful as a real one. A comment like Wilson's probably does not actually sway a great many votes. Not too many of tho unemployed likely are going to vote Republican anyway. But fully exploited, such a remark tends to solidify attitudes, to erase doubts, to close men's minds to countering argument. Wilson is rightfully proud of his business background. He is proud, too, that he is "not a politician." That's all right insofar as it shows a •wish to avoid the seamier side. But a major cabinet officer can no more speak or act outs.ide the board realm of politics than can the President himself. Despite many painful experiences this is a lesson Wilson appears determined to resist. Any Complaints? From time to time, we feel it necessary to remind Courier News readers that the columns of this newspaper are open to every man or woman who has a valid and significant thought or two regarding an important subject. We are not soliciting letters to the editor, but rather feel it necessary to point out that they are printed and welcomed by the newspaper. Lack of letters of this sort sometimes deflects an uninterested and uneducated (civic affairs-wise, anyway) populace. We hope such is not the case here. This newspaper makes two reservations: 'All letters must IIP signed, though names will be with held on rapicst; Right lo make deletions where material is either insignificant or libclous (in our opinion) is understood. v-IEWS OF OTHERS Florida Is Not Ready Atty. Gen. Richard Ervin has put before the Supreme Court of the United States a realistic appraisal of Florida's state ol mind In the matter of abolishing .seRrcKation in the public schools. Tactfully, but with strong ariiumevils backed up by evidence recently gathered in a scientific study, he has advised the Court our people are not ready for dcscKri-Kation and there'll be trouble if it is forced upon them without plenty of time to work out the tremendous problems in the light of local conditions. He outlines the pmblein.s clearly: A big bookful of laws and administraUvs procedures based on a .state constitutional provision requiring segregated .schools, and a legislature largely unsympathetic' to chanKinfj the system. More than 050,000 pupils attending school in half ft billion dollar* worth of building* planned and located over a period of years for a seffre- KiiUnn systorn with tin; prospect, of dislocations and overcrowding if that system IB ended suddenly. The safety factor Involved In mixing white and Negro children in school bases where the only discipline is that of R driver. The prospect that NCR™ teachers would find they were unacceptable for Jobs in mixed schools, as they have found in the North. The harsh evidence thai—whatever the cause —comparative tests as recently as this spring show Negro pupils on the average log behind white students in academic ntUlnment and many would find themselves at a disadvantage in the classroom with white children of their own age. The difference in health, moral and economic standards between white and Negro children Unit would complicate their association. The Indications from a poll of Florida police officers that, the majority of them lack confidence in their ability to maintain order In event of forced desegregation nnd thai "less than firm, positive action to prevent public disorder might be expected" in some communities. And the Attorney General towed back at the Supreme Court the liuimmge 11 used In ruling that to KCgrcRfite children "solely because uf their race generates a feeling of inferiority as. to their status because the community that may affect their hearts and minds in a way unlikely ever to be undone." He told the Court children reflect the "deep- sealed and antagonisms felt by their parents" and in many areas of Florida mixing ol the races in school would be "placing the. children in a situation which could only result in (•one- ratinK teelinns ol hnUe.ri. inf priority nnrt bias which would 'affect their hearts and minds in a Way unlikely ever to he undone'."--Tallahassee Democrat.

By DOUGLAS NKA Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON —(NEA)— The next scries of iilomie tests, scheduled for mid-February, 1055, at the Nevada proving ground, should produce another major stride in U. S. atomic weapon development. It could be the most spectacular continental .series of leriLs yet conducted, with troops maneuvering within a milt! of « blast,, the firing of guided missiles with atomic wnr- honris, the testing of atomic antiaircraft, shells niui the perfection of A-weupons already in the tir- se-niit. All of Ihose things are considered by HIP exports to be able materials most efficiently. A whole series of blasts proved what were the most practical packages for alnmic weapons: All of this work has permitted the AEC weapons experts to reduce the size for A-weapons to where they could be dropped by every combat-type Air Force plane nying. The successful firing of the atomic cannon during the last Nevada tests the climax to earlier work, proving that you can wrap an atomic blast in a package about 11 inches In diameter and a few feet lonp. In addition lo the scientific in- fm'mation gained by the tests is progression of A-weapon dc- jthe experience which the .services vclopmrnt. The wording if the Atomic have find in the handling of live A-bombs. In the Air Force, for ergy Commission's announcement • instance, there is a large corps of of the test series makes 1.1 clear i men with actual experience in han- that no hydrogen bombs or thor- dling and dropping live A-bombs. Miomieloar devices will be exploded. It's obvious (rom recent lo.sls .

After almost every boom out of <\ bui out how tn use the clear weapons. The Army now believes that it is safe, to put troops in sliL trenches within n mile of ground zero, and pro- ' probably will do it. Two miles is •rie.s ; tin: closest troops have been be- revoiuiion ; fore, according to announcements. • FCD Apnrtidpntion has done 1 most in alerting 1 citizens to the. 'real danger of atomic attack and ;uul Unduui : the need to support n better civil scarco fission- | defense program. It is reported in the Pentagon that there will be a firing of either an Honest John or WAG Corpornl guided missile with a live atomic warhead in (he upcoming tests. These two weapons have now been integrated into Army units in Europe. There's not much question about being able to package an A-bomb in the nose of a missile, it having been done in an artillery shell. But the actual firing of a missile is far more complex than the shooting of a projectile out of a cannon. If it's proved in Nevada next February that a tactical atomic missile can be launched and detonated .successfully the nation is a major step toward the ultimate goal in this new weapons system field, which is a strategic intercontinental atomic missile. The rumor that there might be an atomic antiaircraft shell tested hints of an equally significant development. If this is done successfully in Nevada in February it means ttmt America's defense against attack by swimns of Russian fighters is immensely strengthened. The mere knowledge that the United States possesses .such an antiaircraft weapon would be a major deterrent to a mass bomber attack on the United States. In the broad sense the Pentagon will be eagerly watching the next Nevada scries because results could mean further budget cuts if they show that the new family of A-weapons really do give a lot more bang for a buck. Ann Miller's fortitude in finishing her scenes in MGM's "Hit the Deck" after her mother's serious heart attack is a show-must-go-on story. . . . The stork is due to hover over the home of Marc Platt, now in "Oklahoma" and his bride, Jean Goodall,. in December, Mitzi Gaynor, who now says the wedding date is up to Jack Bean, may pass up the contract offered her by MGM for the chance to star in the musical version of "Seventh Heaven" on Broadway. The New Yorker magazine reports this conversation in a Beverly Hills jewelry store: "Three hundred and fifty dollars for a topaz ring? Whoever would wear one that size anyway?" "It isn't a rlnff. It's for the top of the gearshift handle of a Jaguar." IT'S ONE MORE picture for Bob Hope at Paramount and then, after 17 years, he'll form his own producing company.

He'll open the stanzas with a ling of girls a la though he had seen it. East surely had the queen of trumps because he nad so obviously avoided leading a third round of spades. South therefore finessed quickly nnd confidently on the second round of trumps, making his contract with no further difficulty. Here is declarer's full line of reasoning: If East started with only two small trumps he would have some reason to hope that his partner could overruff the dummy on R third round of spades. Therefore East would lead a third spade if he had only two small trumps. If East has the queen of trumps, however, he knows that his partner cannot overruff dummy's ten. (If West happens to hold the jack of hearts, it doesn't matter what East does, since the queen of hearts will then surely provide the setting- trick.) East will carefully avoid leading a third round of spades since he will not want to make it clear to declarer that West cannot over- ruff the dummy.
