Egypt's Folly Since responsible men have come to understand that small wars can too easily flare into big ones, few talk rashly of undertaking even minor military aggressions. | The Red Chinese spouted arrogantly earlier this year on the subject of Formosa and the offshore islands of Quemoy and Matsu. But at least for a time they have quieted, and are doing nothing to carry out their threats against those territories. It comes as something of a jolt, therefore, to realize that there are powerful elements in Egypt which actually talk openly of launching war on neighboring Israel. The most charitable thing that can be said for those who talk this is that they are woefully ignorant of the dangers inherent in this course. We must assume the Egyptians and other revengeful Arabs have heard of nuclear weapons. We can only conclude they do not grasp how easy it might be to slip from "limited war" to a general holo- saust. Perhaps their understanding would be aided if they were not so blinded by hatred o£ Israel. Said the Cario radio not long ago: "Israel needs a lesson." Not Egypt alone but all Arabs states believe Israel should be struck a blow. In fact, one reason Egypt is not unloading Russian-made arms in its ports is because the present government under Premier Nasser wants the country to maintain a position of leadership in the Arab world. Regional leadership that must be bought at the price of undertaking a risky war of revenge is not leadership that men of genuine responsibility will admire. Nasser frankly acknowledges that the arms build-up is necessary also to keep the Egyptian army in support of his government. Lack of equipment was a big reason for the revolution that brought Nasser to power. Neither this effort nor the broad Arab desire for revenge against Israel will gain Egypt or its friends much sympathy in a world eager above all to have done with wars—big or small. In 1950 the West declared for maintenance of the existing borders and power balance between Israel and the Arab nations. Apparently it does not yet see Israel in such peril today that either arms aid or new guarantees are required. But meantime Russia, deaf to all pleas, goes on shipping the arms to Egypt. We have Egypt's own word for it that it would like to use these arms. The West, for iU own selfish purposes (bases and oil fields,) would not like to jeopardize further Its »lready they persist in pressing narrow causes fragile relations with th« Arabs. But if at the possible cost of the whole world's security, the West will have no choice but to throw much greater weight on the side of keeping the present Israel-Arab balance. VIEWS OF OTHERS Russians Keep Secrets Well Every normal person has an inclination lo gossip. Some can hardly wait to get an audience whenever they come upon an item that may be classified as news. While gossiping and loose talk can be overdone, it is usually & good thing to spread the news around for it often helps others and may in the end help everyone. The Russians have no desire to help others. Thus when they learn a piece of news they keep It secret unless or until releasing it is clearly to their advantage. When Hans Linge who had been Adolf Hitler's valet, returned to Germany after ten years in Soviet prisons, he told immediately his story of the deaths of Hitler and his mistress, Eva Braun. His story tends to confirm the opin- will doubtless be questioned in detail to deter- story of Hitler from the ruins of Berlin. Linge will doubtless be questioned in detail! to determine if he is telling the truth and through him the myths and rumors about the escape of Hitler will be discredited. Linge says the Russians questioned him for days on his story of Hitler's death and later returned him to Berlin to re-enact the story. Strangely the Russians neglected to share the story with their comrades in arms who made it possible for them to enter Berlin originally. The Russians knew, of course, the efforts that were being made by the Western powers to determine the Hitler fate beyond question. Their silence indicates their supreme indifference to the welfare of anyone other than the Russians. It suggests their general policy of guarding every scrap of information in the hope that they may be causing trouble for others and possibly may help themselves. It would be much easier to think well of the Russians If they behaved a little more like human beings. — Green Bay (Wis.) Press-Gazette, The British Traitors The damage done to America by the two British diplomat-traitors, Guy Burgess and Donald Maclean, may never be fully assessed, but it is likely that they served Moscow a& ably aa another British traitor, Dr. Klaus Fuchs. It is probable Maclean, in particular, played i key role in the events leading up to open Intervention by the Chinese Communists in the Korean War, an affair in which thousands of American lives were sacrificed. As head of the American department of the British foreign office, Maclean had full access to the American-British correspondence during the days when the U. S. was having to assure the anxious British that the Korean war would not be expanded no matter what happened. The speculation i« that Moscow and Peiplng were kept fully Informed, by Maclean of the American-British notes on Korea. Thus assured, the Red Chinese did not hesitate to take the gamble of sending an army streaming Across the Yalu to attack the U. N. forces. Maclean's dope turned out to be correct, too. The U. S. did not react to Chinese Intervention as might have been expected. The fighting was kept confined to Korea, and China was allowed to embark on a foreign adventure without the least fear of retaliation. Thus Maclean and Burgess served their Communist bosses well. They should have been given Communism's highest decoration. They ought to get their necks stretched, too, if they ever fall Into British or American hands. — Carlsbad (N. M.) Current-Argus. Polite Traffic Police The Chicago traffic police have been given some advice on approaching motorists they flag down that could be of use to most police everywhere. They are advised to take a polite impartial attitude with a greeting like this: "Good evening, sir. I stopped you because you exceeded the speed limit. May I see your driver's license?" That is very good. Much better than that old crack, "Where Is the fire?" It might be an improvement if the police otllcer would Introduce himself, just as Joe Friday does; "I'm officer Smith of the Green Buy police" could very well follow the "Good evening, siv." Many policemen are nervous and on the defensive when they approach a motorist and some of them attempt to cover their tension with a crude wise crack, or by using sophisticated forms of address such as "Bud" or "Chum" or "Pop" or "Bub", neither of which helps the case any. Traffic police get better every day but the fines remain the same. — Green Bay (Wis.) Press-Gazette. SO THEY SAY If tolerance cannot be found In the schools and churches, In the shop nnd,market place, It will nowhere be found. — Attorney General Brownell denounces "professional bigots." * * * I'm just as certain as I can be that there Is going to be n solid (Democratic) South again , next year. — Paul Butler, National Democratic chairman, * # * Personally, I shall oppose any reductions in federal taxes until the budget is firmly balanced and nt least token reductions in our gigantic tederal debt &re passible and are being made. — Sen.

Anslinger, Federal Narcotics Commissioner, Well, Well, Another Trojon Horse! Peter Edson's Washington Column — Ikes Daughter-in-Law Eyes Costs; Folks at Gettysburg Will Keep Quiet WASHINGTON —(NEA)— Pretty Barbara Eisenhower, wile of Ike's son, Maj. John Eisenhower, is as careful a buyer of clothes as her mother-in-law, Mamie. With three growing kids and increasing social responsibilities, Barbara keeps a sharp eye on the family budget. Other day, for example, Barbara stepped into a plush women's store here in town. She spotted a beauti ful cocktail dress, but when the salesgirl told her the price, she shook her head. "It's Just what I want, but it would be too extravagant on a major's salary." Red Stanley, the genial chief bartender at the Gettysburg Hotel, where correspondents and official visitors will stay, isn't about to be aloof to his White House party customers. The specialty of the bar is a giant old-fashioned cock- tall. He stirs up a mean Gibson, too. It's great apple country around there, and Red is proud of the local apple Jack he serves. There are r.ome exotic foo^s which you just can't get at a restaurant or even at a big dinrfer. Like sambal badjak, a red-hot Indonesian sauce which would take the fur off a Mexican's tongue. Or ajam odor, chicken cooked In thick spice sauce; pisang goreng, bn- nanas baked in a heavy candied gravy, and sajoer djagoeng, a corn soup which you wouldn't mind serving for dessert. That's the? menu Mrs. Hari Kruithof, wife of a Dutch World Bank official, served to an inii- mate group of bank and embassy people the other night. She cooked everything herself, loo. Excuse for the party was the arrival of a Jar of sambal badjak from Indonesia, the only thing Mrs. Krutlhof didn't cook. But who needs an excuse to serve food like that? When Ike arrives at his farm in Gettysburg, pa., he is sure to get alt the privacy he needs. Citizens of the town have agreed to give the While House family the aloof treatment. They feel it's up to them to make sure the President's Gettysburg convalescence is tmbothered by rubbecneckers, sightseers or nosey townspeople. Civic leaders also have heard that the reason why the Eiserf bowers like Denver so much is because people there tend to leave them alone and do not make a fuss every time they see Mamie on'the street or the First Family leaving church. Gettysburg will try to follow the same pattern. Detroit has shown this town something new In the way of parties. A few nights ago executives from General Motors Truck Division came down from Michigan to entertain 2500 members of the American Trucking Association during their annual convention. Party started with cocktails and such hors d'oeuvres as oysters Rockefeller, imported cheese and caviar. Dinner 'featured shrimp- crabrneat cocktails, giant slabs of roast beef, three kinds of wine and a songfest by the Air Force choir and opera star Marguerite Piazza. Then they rilled up the rugs and d.-inced to all hours. Estimated lab for the blowout: 560,000. Most delightful news White House correspondents have had in years is the chance that Ike might the Doctor Says — By EDWIN P. JORDAN, M.D. Written for NEA Service Several correspondents have inquired regarding the white patches on the tongue inside of the mouth which is a condition known as lexiltoplaMii. in replying to these, without quoting any one of the questions specifically, T- should like to emphasize that this is a condition which should not be neglected since these patches can become cancerous. spend some time in Key West, Fla., during his recovery. The vacations which former president Truman spent on the naval base there were among the most enjoyable times reporters ever had. The base has the best swimming pool in the state. The fishing is great. And the hospitality is tops. If Ike goes down there. It will be the best-covered vacation in White House history, probably. Cocktail odds: Two to one that this is the year Mrs. Nixon, wife of the vice president, buys a mink coat. Word is that she has been shopping for one for the past couple of weeks. .Trouble is_ her husband made such a point i-bout her cloth coat in his famous fund speech during the campaign. Even money that the White House will have a semblance of a social season late in the winter. At least one reception for the diplomatic crowd am' one for congressmen. Maybe one for the Supreme Court. Hundred to one that Senatorse John stennls (D-Miss), John Mo Clellan (D-Ark) and Dennis Chavez (D-N.M.) will be flying commercial airlines for the next few years. Brace yourselves men: Next year there will be no celebration of Expectant Father's Day. Whether you know it or not, the last celebration of this event came off last June 18. This year, however, the Expect ant Fathers Club of New York has dropped its sponsorship of the event. So it will not be publicized by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce which officially recognizes all special days, weeks and months of 1956.

Ida, as a movie queen, wins an Academy Award in the first show, which was written by her ex-husband Collier Young;. Young borrowed wife Joan Fontaine's Oscar for his ex-wife to accept in the telefilm! The grapevine's twisting with the report that Jeff Donnell may return as Alice Oobel. George's fans are screaming; for her since his return to TV screens, but Jeff's heard nothing official about the idea. . About her own marriage to Aldo Ray she's saying: "We've talked about a reconciliation, but there's nothing new." The offers are pouring in but there will be no series show for Jack Carson "until there's something I'd .really lite to do." With every new TV season sending old favorites to the showers and new stars to the top, it's Jack's theory: "I think there will b« a tremendous demand in future TV for people who can survive." One of the first variety hour stars from New York, Jack has survived TV, as he's done in movies, by refusing to be typed. He's the boss of a western town in his latest home screen role. "Arroyo," for Screen Directors Playhouse. The tight-lipped stuff was to his liking, he laughed on the set of "Bottom of the Bottle" at Pox. "I felt," he told me, "like a big Alan Ladd." Movie Stunt Man Bud Wolfe falling from a height of 24 feet through a "glass" (candy) roof was the climax of a Climax show, "The Pink Cloud." It's another reason former N. Y. video director Allan Relsner is hailing west coast technical staffs. "A stunt like this" he told me, "couldn't be done in New York.

Then he got to dummy with a spade to ruff a second low diamond with his last trump. Finally he led a third spade towards dummy. Fortunately, the player with the last outstanding trump also had to follow the third round of spades. (Otherwise, the ruff would stop the overtrick but could not defeat the slam.) Hence Dick got to dummy safely to draw West's last trump with the jack of hearts. Since Dick had no trumps left, he could discard a club. Now dummy led the seven of trurnpg, and Dick discarded a second low club from his hand. Dummy continued with the ace of diamonds, and Dick discarded the third low club from his hand. It was then a simple matter to claim the last three tricks with the ace of clubs and the last two spades.

THE ARRIVAL of a new baby in a home sometimes upsets the normal procedures more than somewhat.
