Late in 1952, Laltimore. Johns Hopkins professor assailed us exerting leftist influence on the State Department's Far Eastern policy, was indicted for perjury on seven -counts. The key charge was that he lied to the Senate Internal Security subcommittee when he denied lie had promoted or sympathized with Communist causes. Some months later, Youngdahl threw out four of the seven counts on the ground they were constitutionally vague and indefinite. Then, by an Sto 1 decision, the U. S. Court of Appeals rein- staled two of the dismissed counts, but sustained Youngdahl on the other two— including the key count. This fall a U. S. grand jury reinriicted Lattimore on two fresh counts, including a renowned charge that paralleled the original key count. A week later U. S. Attorney Leo Rover filed an affidavit charging Youngdahl with "fixed personal bias and per- judice." in Lattimore's behalf, lie asked that the judge take himself out of the case. Youngdahl has now refused. To consider this mailer on need not go into opinions about LaUimore's guilt or innocence. That is a question apart. What is at stake is whether a judge is free to act as he believes the law and his conscience dictale. Youngdahl so acted in this case, and appeals court of nine men supported him on the most important points. It is hard to escape the conclusion that government prosecutors want another judge because they believe their chances of getting a conviction might he greater. Since the appeals court hacked Youngdahl, will the government also ask that it disqualify itself? Neither the government nor anyone else should attempt to hand-pick a judge in any kind of an American trial. When it enters a courtroom, the government already has a sufficient advantage just being what it is—the most powerful agency in our life. The high ideals of American justice demand that government, like the weakest individual citizen, be prepared to plead its cause with assurance of fair treatment hut without special favor. s/IEWS OF OTHERS Truth And The Public A television network may hnve learned that absolute truthfulness Is always the best policy In its relations with the public. Recently a singer, Mario Lanza, was scheduled to perform. It WAS learned that hlfi doctors considered him too weak from dieting to do any sing- Ing—he lost forty pounds In too short a time. Instead of cancellne the progiem and scheduling It at a later date II was decided to go on schedule and let the singer mouth the words while records he made previously were played out of sight of the audience. Had this been explained at the start of the prOKrum most viewers would have accepted it: tome would even have applauded the singer's desire to appear despite the fact that he was not feeling well. The net work tried to hide the truth and when questions were asked they claimed that the records used were only ten days old instead of several years old as they were. The truth came out as It u.sually does and a great deal more publicity was given to the affair than It actually merited. It can be summed up In the words usually attributed to Lincoln—"You can fool all of the people some of the time and some of the people all of the time. Hul you can't fool all of the people all of the time." You look very foolish when you try.—Portsmouth tVa.) Star. The Little Rascals We have just, come to the happy conclusion that J. Raymond McCarthy of Appleton. Wis., will never be a dictator. He's too big. The Wisconsin .senator measures 5'lQf/ 2 ", Sometimes he wears built-up shoes, to put himself nearer that oh-so-desirnble ?2 Inches. When someone nskcd him once why he wore wedgies he explained soberly that 'twas on account of war wounds. (His one "war wound", you may recall, occurred when he fell off a ship's ladder. But 'we have strayed from the point ol the story, which is that dictators are little men, presumably determined to be "big men" in other than physical proportions. Harrison Salisbury, long-time New York Times correspondent in Moscow who is now back in this country writing a fascinating account ol life in Rusia, says that a six-man juntit now rules the Red It is comprised of Malcn- kov, Khrushchev, MoUHov, KuKimovich, Bulyao in and Mikoyan, all oi them about 5'4", That makes them about the height Stalin was. Hitler wns, ut the most, a coupln inches Uiller, Mussolini was shorter, about 5"2", which was Napoleon's height. Vargas, the late dictator of Bnixll. wasn't much over five led tall. So don't worry much about the big demagogues. But watch UIOHC little nisculs. — Charlotte (N. C.) News.

Don't Count Your Chickens Before They're Hatched! By ERSKINE JOHNSON NKA Staff Correspondent HOLLYWOOD—(NBA)—Un-Cov- wing Hollywood: Marilyn Monroe and that other dangerously curved Hollywood blonde, Mamie Van Dor^n. are In the look-alike league but they're about to be disqualified for a duet on the lyrics of "Anything You Can Do, I Can Do Better." Even if Mamie is headed for song and dance stardom in the U-I filmusical, "Third Girl Prom the Right." If MM yells copycat, she'll tre all wrong, says Mamie, who explains: "It isn't a dumb blonde role. She's a smart character—the kind Carole Lombard once played. Besides, my singing voice is different than Marilyn's and the dancing will be different, too." "Too Hot to Handle" is the Mon- roe-ish title of a song Mamie will sing in the film, but Mamie insists: Honest, our wiggles won't even be the same." Peter Cdson's Washington Column — Test of Americans' Honesty Points To Fact That You Can Trust Them By DOUGLAS LAKSKN NKA Washington C'orn'.sumident WASHINGTON —rNEA»—James C. Worthy, assistant secretary of Commerce, has made a little of tin* honesty of American citizens and concludes that you can trust them. A real bird dotf on hip and little money-.saviiiK ideas, Worthy be- V, an nosing' Info the procedure, for mailing out Commerce publications for which there is a charge. He learned that they were not mailed out unless the request was accompanied by the proper amount of money. If the cash WH.S not included with ft request n letter was sent back to the \vril.rr cxpU-yniny; that you had to pay before delivery. To try to simplify the procedure Worthy decided to send publications out in thn return mail with tht! bill for (hem attached. In the first month it was found that 85 per cent of thn publications wr.n 1 paid for immcdintely and that the rest of the payments trickled in n link- latev. Tln.s I'limimttum of red tape may be adopted government-wide us a result.

He paused at one winch had a big- dial showing Jaygcd blue flush- cs of light. "What's that Riul^et?" Weeks inquired. "It's an electronic picture of vour voice," the attendant ex- plained. "Talk into it," he invited Weeks. Week:; said a few words into the fctulKot ami watched the 1 blue lines dance crazlly. "My gash," he exclaimed, "I bet I have the worst-looking voice in town." Internal Commissioner T- Colnniiin Andrews passed around cigars in a fancy varnished hardwood box at the opening of a recent conference. "I don't smoke myself," Mr. Andrews explained, "so I'm passing them out lo you." "Just what delinquent taxpayer is furnishing these cigars?" asked a reporter. "Kx-Semttor Tom Connolly of Texas always used to tell us they came from some oil company, when he parsed out cif>ar,s." "As a mailer of fact," Mr. Andrews grinned, "these cigars aren't co.stmq 1 the taxpayers a cent because (hey were given to me by the Philippine tax commissioner when he was in town recently." Swensl weeks ngo a {-amous Hollywood actress culled the office of Vice President Nixon to complain about the way Sen. Joseph McCarthy was be inn treated. Christian Hi-rter Jr., son of the governor of Massachusetts, was then (he V. P.'s administrative assistant and took Hie call, He listened for five niirniies without being able to get, a word in. Finally the no tress nsked. "Just who is this I'm talking to?" Herter told her. "Would you please spell it out. I never heard of you," she said. He obliged in his strong Boston accent. "Now would you please spell out your name?" he asked politely, ' cause I never heard of you either."" He's too much of a gentleman to reveal the actress' name. Mrs. Carolyn H. Shaw, the town's .social arbiter who publishes "The Social List of Washington" each year, is all prepared for a major supplement she'll have to put out after the congressional elections. When the Republicans took over the White House and Congress two years ago she had to print the biggest supplement in the book's history. Her book contains all kinds of advice to hostesses. And she stands ready to give answers to any protocol problems which arise in case of a Democratic Congress. A new move is underfoot to get 7'as.s, the Russian news agency, tossed out c-f the congressional press galleries. Several letters from reporters have been received by the Standing Committee which rules on membership, asking that the quest-ion be brought up for discussion again. The committee has previously ruled that should be allowed membership in the gal- lerie.s. The protesting letters point out new information from various Russian security officials who have defected to the west that Tass men are agents of the Russian government. Membership in the galleries is important because it is the basic press accreditation in town. the Doctor Says— Written for NEA Service By EDWIN P.

When these pockets do not produce symptoms the condition is called "divertiriilosis." This does not require treatment, But they can become inflamed and then the label "diVorticulitis" is applied. In diverticulitis the symptoms of inflammation vary a Rood deal. There may be a Millie slicht attack ot acute abdominal pain or several attacks of slight distres.s. Occasionally, the inflammation may be so severe as to cause a perioration or hole producing peritonitis, abscess lovnv.\non. or obstruction. The area involved may he sensitive to pressure, though ot course many otter conditions can cause such symptoms. For this reason exam inn lion ol the lower pan of the bowel by the use ot nn msint- mcnt called a proctoscope is ly necessary. X-ray studies also help In estjibliiOiUiR diagnosis.
