It ii reliev- inf, thtreiw*, wh*n so important a fit- urt a« German Chancellor Adenauer ride* out a shaky period and takes a new held on the Bonn government. Hia trip wu jarred recently when the Free Democrats in the Kuhr province •f North Rhin«-We»tphalia linked up with the rival Social Democrats to unseat a provincial ministry headed by a member of Adenauer's Christian Democratic party. At,the national level, the Tree Democrats have been part of his government.coalition of parties. The move was meaningful because it pared Adenauer's upper house majority to a point below the two-thirds majority he needs to enact some features of Germany's rearmament proposals. His government is committed to rearmament in support of NATO and the West. But in this developing dilemma, potentially one of the worst of many he has faced, other Free Democrats came to Adenauer's rescue. Sixteen of the 53 serving as representatives of the lower house (Bundestag) bolted their party and formed a new group pledged to the chancellor^ Adenauer himself acted to strengthen his position. He agreed to stiffen civil control over the proposed army, and thus gained Social Democratic support for the general rearmament law now pending. Thereafter, confident of its passage, he threw the other 37 Free Democrats out of his ruling coalition. Evidently he felt he coulij not count on their help in future tests of loyalty, and thus had nothing to lose. Once more, then, the old man whom Sir Winston Churchill calls the greatest German statesman since the 19th century Bismarck appears in firm control. N«v«rth«i«M, X would be foolhardy to ignore the danger of his present position. Political realignments appear to b« taking place, and some are substracting from the solid foundation of his support. More and more he is compelled to improvise, to make concessions to his opponents, to keep on top. The West obviously must do more than pray that the aging chancellor will live well beyond the German republic's next general elections in 1957. Within the limits foreign states must fix for themselves to avoid charges of interference, we and our friends must work discreetly but forcefully to strengthen Adenauer's hand against his adversaries. This mean chiefly helping him to keep alive hopes for the reunification of East and West Germany, the issue his opponents seek most often to exploit against him. Beyond the point of tedium^ we must listen to Communist unity proposals even when we suspect they are worse than some of their phony offerings of the past. Adenauer is one of the real rocks of the Western fortress against communism. We cannot afford to see that rock chipped away. VIEWS OF OTHERS Oil Your Pistols You know, the type.

By PETER EDSON NEA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON —(NEA)— The United States, Britain and France are now preparing to take a great big gamble that Soviet Russia will not send her own forces into the Middle East, in case new fighting breaks out between the Arabs and Israelis. The principal reason given is that in past Communist aggressions, the Russians have always allowed others to do the fighting and dying for the Moscow cause. This was true in Korea, Indo-China and Greece, where Russian generals did all the masterminding, but not one Russian soldier, risked his We. In the Middle East, however, the Russians have no satellites on the borders of the trouble area. There are Communist parties and under- grounds in Syria, Lebanon, Jordan and Israel. But '.hey do not control governments or military forces— only mobs. Russia, through Czechoslovakia, is now supplying arms to Egypt. In the event war breaks out again between Egypt and Israel, the Soviet involvement would have to be limited to this indirect aid unless the Russians put their own troops in the field. To do this, they would have to be moved through or flown over Turkey or Iran. This would be something brand-new in Communist ag- gression. It could easily start World War m. Concern over this possibility is the number one consideration as U.S. Undersecretary of State Robert Murphy, British and French Ambassadors Sir Roger Makins and Maurice Couve de Murville meet to shape what western policy should be in the event of new Middle East fighting. Their tasks are an outgrowth of the recent conference between President Eisenhower and British Prime Minister Sir Anthony Eden. It was proposed then that France be invited to join in a new.declara- tion that western military forces would be sent to the area to preserve peace, in case either the A;abs or the Israelis committed new aggression. Soviet Russia reacted immediately with a statement that any such action would be a gross violation of the United Nations charter—and of Soviet Interests in the areas as well. The Moscow foreign office statement did not say flatly that Russia would send in its own military forces if the -western powers took action. But the implication Was there. The present inclination is to regard this as bluff. Meanwhile, there Is continuing effort behind the scenes to try for a more peaceful settlement of Arab-Israeli differences. In spite of all the border incidents, there is some hope that a satisfactory peace formula can be found. Sir Mohammed Zafrulla Kahn former foreign minister of Pakis tan, now a judge on the World Court, has made one informal suggestion for a new approach that may have some merit. Instead of trying to settle everything In one package, he would break i down intp smaller, more manageable parts. He thinks the Arab refugee prob lem is the greatest cause of tension and should be settled first His own suggestion would be to let such refugees as desired to do so, return to their former Palestine homes and reclaim their property Let the others then be paid dam ages for property lost by abandon ment or through confiscation by the Israelis. The second problem Is Israel's boundaries, which are admittedly unrealistic from both points ol view. They split the Arab bloc a Aqabah on the Red Sea. This Egypt, Jordan and Saudi Arabia do not like. To the north, the pr.esen frontiers of Israel are so irregula as to be indefensible. The elements of a trade exist in this situation. With these two issues settled in dependency, the Pakistani states man believes a political settlemen possible. 75 Veal's Ago In Mrs. Lydia McGhee and Miss Doris McGhee spent yesterday in Memphis. Mrs. Floyd A. White and Mrs. Hunter Sims have gone to Tallulah, La, for a visit with Mr. and Mrs. R. N. Ware and family. Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Leech left this morning for Hot Springs to attend the races. Mrs. Baker L. Wilson of Somerville, Tenn. will return home tonight after having visited friends here. in that kind of tension? Our own infantile attitude toward what we thins we want in life is also a major source of the wrong kind of tension. Perhaps all men yearn to grow up and earn a million dollars and marry the prettiest girl in town, but the fact remains that all men can't. There aren't that many millions of dollars or that many » * * pretty girls. But there are plenty of good jobs that pay a man & living wage, and a girl doesn't have to win a beauty contest to make an endurable wife. As a. people we aren't really "success happy." We are actually more often unhappy because we don't know what real success Is. A spoiled child gets tense and throws a tantrum because it can't get what it thinks it wants when it wants it. Most of our malignant tension* . reflect the fact that we have remained spoiled children Instead of growing up. * • * True success lies in the ability to discard goals that we can't achieve or that fail to make us happy. The art of living. lies in an intense interest in things that add to our pleasure and enjoy ment of life. If you feel yourself acquiring an Ulcer over tensions, the thing to do Is to takt a long cold shower, then look In the mirror and ask yourself: "Is the lun of what I'm trying to do worth the ulcer I'm getting?" It It isn't, jlvo It up and switch to t new tension—ami wt tf you don't leel better < the Doctor Says — By EDWIN f. JORDAN, M.D. Written for NEA Service. The victim and family of someone with a rather rare disease are vitally interested in the condition. Thus I have two inquiries on ich- thyosls, one of which is quoted. Q—Would you say somethng about the skin disease ichthyosis? A—This skin disorder is also known as fish skin disease. It is usually congenital, that is, present at or shortly after birth. It has been reported in four generations and, therefore, there is a strong hereditary factor. The skin in ich- thyosis is dry and scaling, especially about the knees .and elbows. Treatment consists both of local and general measures but is not too satisfactory. Improvement is often obtained but complete recovery is unlikely though It is said that the process usually stops after reaching a certain stage. Q—Is it possible for the ringworm which appears as a circular patch on the non-hairy skin to be transmitted from person to person? —J. L. A—The transmission of this form of ringworm is usually through the medium of towels, blankets, clothing, or the like rather than by direct transference. Q—My two-month-old b»by had a disease at birth known as erythroblastOBls fetalis. She received three transfusions and is fine now but I Bonder if there Is anything I need to worry about in the future.—Mrs. O. A—Th« mott likely difficulty in an infant with erythroblastosls fetalts Is the presence of jaundice for the first two weeks of life. The fact that this apparently was not present speaks well for the future. Treatment of this disease has been greatly Improved and there are probably far fwer now who show any mental retardation or spas- ticity than • occurrtd In the more serious cases In the past. Q—Our eight-year-old grandson has been having styes tor the past five or six months. He seems to be In food health but tht atyM persist . A—Repeated attack sotstytti are quite common. It seemi a little difficult to Mllev* that MI elght- ytar-old bar thould b» suffering from ereMraln, but If he t» It tlMUM b* femctMl; pwUMr IN needs glasses. It will be well t check the youngster's genera health and then If all It found-i order local treatment with heat antibiotics, and the like is perhap all that can be done. Q—Please say something abo.u scleroderma. Is It' an allergy? How is it treated?—J. JP. W. A—This is a peculiar disorder in volving hardening of the skin. It i probably not an allergy and as ye its exact cause and mechanism o production is uncertain. From th standpoint of treatment severa things may be tried includln change of climate, the admlnlstra tion of thyroid extract an cortisone or ATH. The selectio of methods, however, is a highl technical problem. Biasing Guns ALEXANDRA, Minn. W) — Thre men charged out of the darkenet liquor store, pistols blazing.
