An Unrealistic Plan India's revulsion over the prospect of a War fought with annihilating nuclear weapons is shared by all men of good will. But/ India's proposal for an arms truce pending conclusion of n dig- armament treaty is totally unrealistic, and has been properly rejected in the United Nations. The Indian plan would not even have allowed use of A-or H-bombs to repel aggression. The Indian representatives sought complete prohibition of such weapons. The flaw in this arrangement should be obvious, even to the Indians. Not the use, but the threat, of atomic weapons by the United States is acknowledged to be a principal deterrent to Soviet aggression. That threat strikes home in the Kremlin only because of tlie superiority we have long enjoyed over Russia both in numbers and kinds of nuclear weapons. Should we at any time interrupt; the production that is giving us this margin, then our leverage for peace—and the whole West's — would be quickly be weakened. The recent disclosure that Russia is conducting another series of atomic tests is a pointed reminder that Soviet leaders have been bending all effort to close that gap. One might argue that an armament truce would also interrupt Russian production. Bui that presupposes an ironclad system of arms inspection that would allow international representatives to check on output within the Soviet Union. The Russians have refused to countenance such a system in any and all disarmament discussions. So the only truce Russia would acrroc to would be one weak on inspection, which would leave the Communists relatively free to go on closing the atomic gap, while our great deterrent force would be frozen. Furthermore, such a truce would ignore the fact th'at Russia posesse? a great prenonderance of strength in land armies. These presumably would be held in being despite the arms ban, and would contribute lieavilv to a shift of power toward the Soviet orbit. Anv arms nlan. whether intermediate truce or permanent disarmament treaty, can have no meaning whatsoever without adequate enforcement nro- visions. The Indians have taken nart in world councils long enough now to appreciate that a proposal offered without those checks is wasted breath. If India's leaders ever have any realistic moments, they must have some understanding of how fortunate they are that America does indeed enjoy so marked an advantage in nuclear armament. For otherwise they might long nince have found the unwelcome Red visitor on their doorstep. Cheerful News Secretary of Labor Mitchell's report that U. S. unemployment dropped 358,000 in the last month or more to 2,741,000 is cheerful news. Whether the report comes in time to benefit the Republicans at the polls, whether it would make much difference anyway, these are questions that only Nov. 2 will answer. In speeding the release of this encouraging account, the Eisenhower administration acted from frankly political motives. It has been heavily on the defensive throughout this campaign on the subject of unemployment and "un- der-employmenl." One would have to imagine that the Republicans are less than human to suppose they would not rush to put out hopeful data when they had it. Any Democratic criticisms of this performance may be discounted. If there is anything sure in this turbulent world, it is that the Democrats would have done the very same thing if the tables had been turned. Whatever the politicians make or don't make of it, the decline in unemployment should be welcomed by all Americans. v'lEWS OF OTHERS Theme For Shakespeare Would that Shakespeare were living to portray the tragedy of 111 Prom the way the country la reacting to Marilyn and Joe, one can only speculate on whether there Is. going to be any future for love.

All Uils the sob sisters and their brothers of the crocodile-tears brigade would have a fickle world believe. Breathlessly, they ask the crucial question: "What happened to break up this train?"

S. newspaper renders who have found it difficult to follow all the details of Italy's celebrated Montessl scandal can get a better grasp of the plot by substituting welt-known American names for the principals in the real, Italian cast of characters. This case of course centers around the still unsolved murder of an attractive Itallnn girl of 21, Wllma Montessi, whose body — clad only in scantles — was found washed up on the shore of a fashionable Mediterranean beach near Rome. For the sake of making an American parallel to this case, suppose Wllma's body had been found at Newport, R. I. Then suppose a party girl from right out of the equivalent of a. "Mickey" Jelke case had come forward and testified that Wilma had been murdered by the son of U; S. Secretary of State John Foster Dulles. (In the real Italian case, this was Plero Plccloni. son of Foreign Minister Attllio PlcconD Suppose also that this party girl (Anna Mnrla Cnglto in the Italian cast) testified that the Secretary of State's son had committed this murder as the assassin for a dope smuggling ring after an all-night dope and sex orgy at exclusive Bailey's Beach. To cap it all, suppose further that Anna Maria Coglio had testified that the head of this dope smuggling ring was her former lover, a self-styled Marquis (Ugo Montago) who was a close friend Cl of J. Edgar Hoover.nnd Secretary of Interior Douglas McKay r It Is of course inconceivable to Americans that a son of John Fos- ter Dulles, that J. Edgar Hoover or that Secretary McKay would be Involved in any such scandal. Yet the equivalent of this Is what confronted the Italian voters on the eve of their last 'elections. THE GERMANS ARE all over Italy. They are far more numerous and far more noticeable than the Americans. The Germans have come this time not as the masters of Italy, but as tourists. They come by chartered bus, by private car, b~ bicycle, motor scooter and even, on foot, with packs on their backs. The Italians aren't .sure they like this new German invasion. "They pushed us around during the war," complained one Italian, "nnd now they're pushing us, around agnln now, as tourists, We don't like it any better now than we did then." THE LENGTHS TO which Communists Will go for an Issue they can beat Americans over the head with is shown by a poster stuck up on the walls in one of the poorer sections of Perugia, Italy. It reads as follows: "FORMOSA Is not an American Island. "It Is Chinese and It ought to be returned to China. "Those who recognize the justice of this are: "Six Hundred Million Chinese — "The government of India — "The Labor Party of England — "The government of London. "It is so established by the declaration of Cairo In December, 19-13 — subscribed to by Roosevelt, liurchlll and Chiang KnI-shek. "For the Peace — "Everyone to his own house." This poster was not signed by anyone. Sunday School Lesson— Written for NEA Service By \V1LMAM E. GILROV, I). 1). j What the Bible says about char-1 ctor is not found in one place but ; s all through the great Book, from Genesis to Revelation. After its supreme Uiomc. and the Dealest o» nil — the message con- erning the character of God. and' the glorious Gospel of His grnci? It Is the Bible's greatest theme of, an's relationship to God and 10 iis fellow ivu\n. ONE OF THE GREAT myths of Italian tourism is that their hotels have done away with the tipping evil and raised the wages of waiters, maids and bellhops at the same time by putting a regular "service charge" on the guest's hotel" or restaurant bill. This "serviclo" can run from a modest 10 per cent at the lower- priced accommodations, up to 15 and 18,per cent at de luxe establishments. Even then you're supposed to tip something. Italian menus look inexpensive on the table d'hote list, too. Beefsteak and filet mignon, the top Items, are only $1 to $1.25 (600 to 750 lira) at the best eating places. But all vegetables are extra, there is a cover charge, the service charge, a local tax and a stamp tax. The end result Is that ft costs like New York. AMERICANS HAVE been 'sold a false bill of goods on the idea that Italy is a poverty-stricken nation that will require American aid for years to come, in order to break even. By comparison, Yugoslavia, Greece, Turkey, even parts of France and of course all of the •countries behind the Iron Curtain, Italy is rich. Southern Italy has of course been a poorhouse and a blighted area for centuries. But a 2000-mile motor trip all over northern Italy — such ns this reporter has just completed — reveals a rich agriculture, an Industrialization, and a tremendous strength in manpower which Is the basic resource of all national wealth, What Italy seems to nsed more than anything else Is good government. Nor are those ^rentest urines ot the Bible in any sense .st'|':ir;ited ar unrelated. Jesus suld to His disciples: "Be ye perfect, even as vour Father in heaven is poiiect." [i is in being godly, like God,, (hut • mn nttnhis bis highest and best. This close linking of man ami lis God Is the distinctive quality of udaism and Christianity.

This line of play worked, and South easily made 10 tricks, fulfilling his contract with an overtrick for a score of 630 points. At the second table, the opening lead was the same. South similarly led a diamond towards the dummy, and West played low. Dummy put up the queen, and East casually played the ten of diamonds. East dldn!t care who had the ace of diamonds; this play couldn't cost anything. The declarer in the second room had the same problem of getting to his hand. He had to lead diamonds from the dummy the second time, but he had a choice of plays. If East had the unguarded jack of diamonds left in his hand, it was vital to lead the king of diamonds from the dummy rather than a low diamond. After much deliberation, South did decide to lead the king of diamonds from the dummy. West won with the ace, and East's jack of diamonds was now the high card of the suit. West astutely shifted to a low spade, and East took the ace and returned the suit. South was now in serious trouble and he wound up going down two tricks, for a loss of , 20Q points. The difference between the two results was 830 points, all due to a single deceptive play. table. If you have a cold in tin head the thin pages are excellent for nose wiping.
