New Worry in Indochina When the Indochina truce waa signed in July, 1954, France «nd the other signatories called for countrywide elections to be held in 1956. It now appears those elections will not take place, and this could mean fresh peril for Southeast Asia. President Diem of Free Viet Nam intends to defy the true pact on the election question. He says that present conditions make it impossible to conduct general balloting covering both the free territory and Communist North Viet Nam." By "present conditions," Diem means the fact that the Communist part of Indochina has more people than the free southern land, and that under Red control * high proportion of these could be expected to vote Communist. The free minority would be beaten, and all Indochina swept into the Red camp. One might observe that these conditions have prevailed continuously since the true and have not been materially altered by the movement of thousands of refugees to Free Viet Nam. Why, then, is this defiance just now showing itself? Possibly the answer i» that earlier Diem did not feel himself strong enough. First he had to establish his full authority, which he did by thrusting aside former Emperor Bao Dai and beating down his supporters. Secondly, he needed to be entirely free of French rule or influence. It was France, of course, which actually sign"sa the true agreement with other major powers. But Diem has now asked France to remove the last of its armed forces from Viet Nam soil, and according to him this will be done long before the scheduled July elections. With no domestic retraints upon him and no direct foreign influence, the Viet Nam premier cannot easily be pressed to accept elections he feels would be ruinous for his country. Britain, France and the United States might go through the formal motions of requesting Diem to prepare for the balloting, while privately assuring him of their sympathy for his defiance. Of more critical moment is what Soviet Russia and Red Chin* will do If and wh«n th« deadline passes without the authorized elections. No one thinks North Viet Nam would attack Free Viet Nam unless Chinese and Russian support were certain. Most guesses today are that open attack will not come. But the risk of resort to force is there. And if we really back Diem in his bold effort to keep his country free, we have got to make our support tangible. He has shown the lengths to which he is willing to go. Will we stand with him to preserve this modest patch of earth from Communist blight ? VIEWS OF OTHERS The Autherine Lucy Case The National Association for the Advancement of Colored Peepie-45-doing-gFeat-disservicc to ihe— Negro race and to all the United States by its current efforts to ram segregation down the throat of the South. This newspaper has frequently applauded the Supreme Court decision on segregation and the decision of Federal Judge George H- Moore banning segregation in housing supported by public funds. There is no question where we have stood and where we will continue to stand. We have felt that segregation is contrary to the laws of the United States and contrary to basic Christian, principles. On the other hand, we live in a world which is ideal only in -theory. We must .live with and recognize traditional patterns of behavior, at least until such times as corrections can be made in an orderly manner. The South the problem peculiar to it which, we believe, eventually will be solved but cannot be solved overnight. It is a tragic mistake to attempt to solve them by violence. a • • • Tolerance and love of fellow-man cannot be legislated but must be evolved, and evolution is a long, long process. Evolution, with respect to the colored people, came easily in the North. It came with remarkable and praiseworthy ease here in Missouri due largely, we think, to the laudable action of Archbishop Bitter some years ago in abolishing segregation in the Catholic schools of the Archdiocese. Eventually it will certainly come to the South. It cannot, however, be legislated and it cannot be forced unwillingly upon the people. The South has many problems peculiar to it. Negroes unquestionably have not had in the South the opportunities in the 90 years or so since their emancipation that they have had in other sections of the land. But they are getting more day by day. The colored people have progressed farther, have had greater opportunities opened to them, have developed more and have risen to new heights faster than any race in the history of the world. Eventually the time will come when they have true freedom of opportunity everywhere, as all Americans should. Even the Supreme Court decision, however, recognized that peculiar problems were presented in various sections which had to be solved with patience, tolerance and understanding on all sides. The South has generally solved its own problems when allowed to do so. They have instinctively arched their backs when they have lelt that outsiders were attempting to force a solution on them. This is a typical human reaction. They would have defeated Bilbo for Senator in Mississippi had it not been for the injection of extraneous pressure by Northern groups in what they felt was entirely a local problem, on the other hand, when they had a rabble-rousing Congressman in the person of John E. Rankin, they defeated him because no one in the North knew he had opposition. H Time or Life or The New York Times had offered gratuitious advice to the people of his constituency, he would have been re-elected. • » * • If, as the NAACP wants, segregation is enforced by Federal troops in the South, it will be a sad day for the Negro people, _as well as for the South and for all America. On the other hand, integration and the solution of many of the problems which the NAACP believes to exist can and will, in our belief, be solved by the simple process of evolution, but never by strong- armed tactics. The colored people have come very far in the less than a century since the War Between the States In the next few decades, they will go even further If the NAACP will make haste slowly, they will be performing an enormous service for their people and for all the *"*tion. — St. Louis Globe-Democrat, "Always Happy to Lend a Hand SO THEY SAY I am assuming a cold war, a period of tension, over 30 to 40 years.—Arthur B. plemming, defense mobillzer, tells Congresi, Hal Boyle's Column Exploding Chemistry Set Started Young Tycoon on Road to Carreer Reactionary Pressures Making Appearances in Many Places NEW YXJRK tfl — It la never pleasant tor «ith*r party whtn boy defiu hii father in picking out his lit*'* career.

This sentiment shows in such things as the recent Chicago rally of admittedly conservative Republicans. They heard Senator Jenner (Indj say that bureaucrats were trying to make a monarch of the U.S President. They heard Senator Malone (Nev.} urge withdrawal of U.S troops from overseas and the buildup of American strength at home. They heard Rep. Usher Burdik (N Dak) urge withdrawal of the United States from the United Nations, completing proposals that would amount to abandonment of the rest of the free world to com-1 munism. This ultraconservatism crops in the cases of Eisenhower administration officials who have resigned under fire. Peter A. stroeoet nad to resign Public Buildings Commisioner, Hugh W. Cross had to resign from Interstate Commerce Commission and Harold'E. Talbott had to resign as Air Force Secretary in conflict of interest cases. In each of these situations was an old-style rugged individualist who wanted to operate government and private business as though they •ivere a : specia.l privilege, the way things were done in the last century. This has been even more noticeable in Sen. Francis P Case's disclosure of an offer of $2,500 for his campaign expenses, during consideration of the natural gas bill. The lobbyists were operating under the old political school rules. Anything they wanted which was good for their business could be bought. This reactionism is by no means confined to the OOP. Democratic headquarters in Washington chides the Eisenhower wing of the Republican party for being "Leap Year Liberals." The purpose is to give the impression that all the Increased social security, aid for depressed areas .and low-income farm families were borrowed from the New Deal. But the Demccratic party isn't as unified in its support of New Deal principles as this current line lets on.

Holder of a number of valuable patents, sought after as a con sultant, Olobus also has made his mark as a businessman. He heads two firms of his own. One is the world's largest producer of powdered titanium, a lightweight, strong, noncorrosive metal. The other manufactures a powerful germicide derived from chlorine. The chemical, which he feels ultimately will prove more beneficial to mankind than any known antibiotic, is used for a wide var- itey of purposes. They range from the treatment of bladder infections and athlete's foot to the ster. lllzation of surgical instruments and the deodorizatlon of dogs and cats. It is being tested as a food preservative and as a fungicide to treat dlseaset of agricultural plants • • • Clobus said he recently had turned down a two-million-dollar bid from a' major chemical firm for the exclusive rights to his chemical, and added thoughtfully: "I Just wonder what I'd do with such a sum of money. I don't need It. When you have <put ai much of your life Into » thing as I have In' this, you hate to turn It over to someone who, may regard it only as another commercial venture." What Olobus really yearned to prove was that as a chemist he could do more for mankind thnn he could have If he had become a doctor. But he can't prove It to the man he'd mpst like td.

Th Powell amendment would simp' deny U.S. grants to any state a long as it defied the Suprem Court decision declaring deseg regatlon unconstitutional.

Sunday School Lesson— WrttMn for N1A Verne* By WILLIAM E. GILROY, D.D. When one looks back upon the 19 Christian centuries, the most hopeful and satisfying thing is this reaKzation: in every age and generation there have been those who loved their Lord in sincerity and truth and manifested their love in their characters and works. There has been a continuity of faith and life that has kept Christianity in living witness. But all has not been nopeful and satisfying. One cannot but be appalled at the extent to which the simplest and plainest teachings of Jesus, and His example, have been disregarded and neglected. Many who have professed His name have built up the elaborate systems, of which the poet, Tennyson, wrote: "Our little systems have their day; They have their day, and cease to be: They are bnt broken lights of Thee, and Thou, O Lord, art more than they." This departure from "the simplicity that is in Christ" has been marked by bitter controversies and persecutions, even violence and warfare, to such an extent that one writer once put it: "If we would understand Christ, we must abolish Christianity." That, of course, is a false and extreme statement, as false as the perversions that the writer deplored. But it did have a gtrm of truth, for we must always'be going back to Jesus and the New Testament, If we would have something more than broken lights of the Christ. •In the failure to attain all that Jesus Intended for His disciples, and all that He Intended them to be, perhap* a crucial aadnes* is in the way in which the Lord'i supper has been made a symbol of division and separation, to the extent that the various denominations and sects have been known as "communions." Among the Protestant churches a measure of correction of thU situation of division has been effected In recent years. The National Council of Churches, and the World Council of Churches, have established a •ort of overhead fellowship, one of UK very flu* product* ot which huj Leen the provision for a Worl Communion Sunday, in October each year.' This is all to the good. But eve communion service should be world communion. During t years when I was presiding ov the monthly communion servi the company was not always larg though always larger than group at the original Lord's Su per in the Upper Room. I alwa; sought to impress .upon those wl participated that we were not small company, but were surroun ed with "so great a cloud of w nesses" (Hebrews 12:1), In cos munion with the great company the saint.' in the Church milita and the Church triumphant, means a great deal to be lifted o of a small circle into the univer of all who love the Lord. The organization of councils churches has meant a great deal the breaking down of denomin tional barriers. But one defect, even of sui commendable movements, is th they tend to make ecumenicity oneness — a matter of organizatii of compromises toward effectin such organization. Truly ecumen city is a matter of the ipirit. A RICH MAN can never kno the thrill of paying that lut insta Iment.—Bartow County (Ga.) He aid.

First, declarer must develop the spades in the right direction. Second, he must avoid drawing too many :rumps. South can make two spade tricks by playing either opponent for the ting of spades. One way is to lead the first spade from the South hand and finesse the queen of spades. The other way Is to take the first spade with the ace and then lead the queen of spades A movie culle accused a bearded old extra of flirting with her and got a surprising answer: "Honey." he said, "I'm too old to take 'yes' for an answer."

South must keep East out of the lead for fear of having a diamond pushed through him If South takes an ordinary spade finesse, he will lose a spade trick to the king, then three diamonds, and eventually a club. Down two. Instead, South wins the first trick in dummy with the king of hearts, follows with the ace of spnaes, and next leads the queen of spades. East covers with the king, for otherwise South would discard a diamond at once. South ruffs the king of spades, gets to dummy with the ace of clubs, and the Jack of spades at once in order to discard a diamond. Now declarer gives up a club, East steps up with the Jack of club- to lead the queen of diamonds. South covers with the king, and West takes the ace of diamonds West now leads a second trump, but declarer can ruff his two small clubs in the dummy. If South has mistakenly drawn a second trump by himself, West would have led a third trump, and then there wouldn't be enough trumps in the dummy to take care of South's two losing clubs.
