Industrial Building Hunt Underlines City's Needs "What we're' looking for is a place that already has a suitable biukling rather than just an industrial site." The man who spoke these words is an official of the General Electric Company. GE is considering; locating a factory in Arkansas and evidently has talked with officials of Joneshoro's Chamber of Commerce'. But his statement pretty well points up Arkansas' and Blythcville's needs in the way of attracting industry. Either a community has a building, or has the money in readiness to build one, or the industrial prospect pushes on to Mississippi where he knows darned well they can get a building and quickly. It seems pretty clear that, once our city overcomes another big hurdle, it must set up a fund whereby it can guarantee construction and subsequent leasing of a building for industry. But this problem is one that can safely be put aside for the time being. Industrial prospects are nil and will be until a plan to get new sewers is in action. Hope Is Faint for Broader Peace Agreements by Reds In spite of their determined barrage of peace talk, the Russians have not done one concrete thing which shows they really mean business. Their answer to President Eisenhower's, "peace" speech — that they are ready for "serious, businesslike" discussion of the great issues — is on the surface conciliatory in tone. Still, the proofs so far are lacking. In Korea, the Communists have released to us 684 UN soldiers held prisoner, including 149 Americans. Because we value individual life highly, we are grateful we can reclaim even these few men from the wreckage of war. But, measured against the large backdrop of that conflict, the number is small. Against the canvas of the whole world struggle it is infinitesimal. Viewed coldly it means the Reds have given up some men who can do us little good militarily and were simply costing them tnonfcy and material to keep imprisoned. We may gain more in the weeks ahead. The revived truce talks in Pan- munjom have not started happily. Red proposals for exchange of able-bodied prisoners seem unreasonable. Nevertheless, Moscow and Peiping may soften their position as talks go on. Beyond that, the deeds both sides wish to see as proof of earnest intent will come much harder. The President talked of a general Par Eastern settlement, signatures on an Austrian treaty, .'1 fre« elections for « unified Germany, real disarmament and world-wide scon- omlc reconstruction. But to make genuine headway on almost any of these matters would demand from the Soviet Unfon sharp departure from the fundamental course of conquest it has long pursued. Indeed, it would require abandoning practices inherent in a police-state dictatorship. Chances for such changes are not bright. Take Korea and the Far East. The Reds would not likely allow a unified, free Korea or call off the Indo-Chinese war unless they got something in return. At the least they would want Peip- ing to gain Formosa and a UN scat. But the state of congressional and general public opinion in the U. S. is a heavy bar to suqh concessions from us. We art not ready to accept Red China into the family of respectable nations. Austria and Germany are no more cheerful prospects. To sign an Austrian treaty means to the Russians pulling out their troops not only in Austria but in Hungary and Rumania on the path from Russia. To allow Germany to unite under real elections would be to risk all Moscow has built in East Germany since World War II. Disarmament is a misty hope. The West would insist on vital inspection features to enforce any program. So long; as Russia remains a police state, acceptance of such inspection looks remote. World reconstruction is an even fainter likelihood. To accept such a plan would be to endorse the undermining of the Communist revolution, which feeds on poverty. It is hard to see the Reds cooperating with the West in wiping out the conditions under which they breed best. Mr. Eisenhower's speech covered ft wide range of possibilities, from small beginnings to great and distant hopes. Despite all the Kremlin's words, there is little sign we are likely to achieve more than the beginnings — if that much. The Russian bear may be' trying to sound like a gentler animal. But he still has the same old lumbering gait ,and predatory purpose. Views of Others Molotov's U.S. Kin Sam Carp. 65, Is a Bridgeport, Conn., caitalist. He Is also a millionaire. Neither fact makes him exactly a phenomenon, but add to these the fact that his sister, Pauline, is the wife of V. M. Molotov, Soviet Foreign Minister, and you have some sort of parable of communism vs. democracy. While his brother-in-law decries capitalistic slavery, capitalist Carp goes quietly about his business, adding to his pile. When he c»me to America more than 0 years ago, Carp didn't have a ruble. He started out as a house painter, got into the gasoline business, predicted a national switch to oil-burning furnaces and turned to fuel oil, hitting it rich. Since then his Midas touch has failed him only once: in 1937, with the recognition of Russia by the United States, he tried to get U. S. shipbuilders to construct for Russia two battleships, the world's biggest. The deal fell through and Carp lost the $2,000,000 Russia had promised him as his capitalistic cut. Now, we don't want to point out an obvious moral about Carp's world as compared to his brother-in-law's. But certainly it must give Molotov a queozy feeling to mouth Marxist platitudes against the West, while his American brother counts his Bold, —Montgomery Advertiser. Subs Look Safer Transoceanic travel by submarine may be commonplace by 1970, according to a recent scientific report. Passenger submarines driven by atomic power would have greater speed under water than on the surface, and would be able to remain submerged almost indefinitely. Submarines traditionally are among the most dangerous of all conveyances. But in an age of atomic power, they might be one of the safest. The driver of an old 1960 jet-propelled car, after a day on the highways dodging ^he new 1970 supersonic automobiles, might easily decide to do his future traveling under water, in order to keep from doing his resting under ground. — Lumberton (N.C.)

"Yeh, Well You'd Be Rusty Too, After 20 Years!" ,,.,M -* . gm v M /feSP* ^.e Peter ft/son's Washington Column — New GOP Bill Is Step to Assure Protection of High U.S. Tariffs WASHINGTON—(NBA)—A plan to pack the U. 8. Tariff Commission with Republican protectionists and to change almost completely the present reciprocal trade agreements program tias now emerged in Congress. This plan is just as clear in its intent as was President Franklin D. Roosevelt's plan to pack the U. S. Supreme Peter Edson CoufJ, with justices who would be favorable to his New Deal program. Author of the Tariff Commission-packing plan is Rep. Richard vf. Simpson, Pennsylvania Republican. His vehicle is a bill called the "Trade Agreements Extension Act of 1953." The Simpson bill proposes to ex,end the present reciprocal trade agreements law for one year, as requested by President Elsenhow- er. The bill would continue the present "peril point" and "escape clause" limitations on tariff rate concessions, Imposed by the Republican-controlled 80th Congress. 3ut it would go far beyond that. Through a series of new amendments to the present trade agreements law, which expires on June 12 unless renewed, the Simpson ]ill would take away from the President nearly all his present powers to modify tariff rates. I would give them to the reorganized Tariff Commission. At the present time, the Tariff Commission Is a bipartisan, six- nan board, supposed to be split three Republicans, three Democrats. The Simpson bill would change this to a seven-member .commission, with no more than four members from any one party. In the present administration, that would mean four Republicans and Republican control. That's where the packing would come in. Two Republican Vancanles filled President Eisenhower has designated, Edgar B. Brossard, of Utah, a Republican, as chairman of the commission. Mr. Brossard, now 64, was made a member of the commission through the influence of the late Sen. Reed Smoot of Utah, co-author of the Smoot-Hawley high-tariff law. As second Republican on the commission, President Eisenhower recently named John Talb'ot, a former Connecticut Republican congressman. There is little question about where Mr. Talbot stands on tariff issues. In 1945 he voted to send a reciprocal trade agreements extension bill .back to committee, which would have effectively killed it. When this failed, he voted to defeat the bill. There is still one Republican vacancy on the six-man Tariff Commission. But even with another high-tariff man on the group, the Republicans would not be able to outvote the three Democrats remaining on the commission. They are former Chairman Oscar B. Ryder, George McGill and Lynn R. Edminster, still serving as vice chairman until President Eisenhower names his successor. All three Democrats are on record in favor of the reciprocal trade agreements program. In order to block even the six- man commission from any further tariff concessions, the Simpson bill would impose additional restrictions on its activities. Bars Change in Tariff Increases One proposed amendment would put specific Increased tariff rates on impor.ted lead and zinc. It would prohibit any change in these increases through any reciprocal trade agreement. These increases in customs duties could have no other effect than to raise the price to U. S. consumers of two metals widely used in the printing and publishing business. Another Simpson amendment would reintroduce "quota restriction"—the bane of all American exporters when imposed against U. S. products by foreign governments. Under the Simpson bill, imports of foreign crude petroleum and its products would be limited to 10 per cent of the estimated U. S. demand for any quarter-year. A further Simpson bill restriction would prohibit U. S. tarriff concessions on any imports which would cause "unemployment of, or injury to, American workers, miners, farmers or producers, prod u c i n g like or competitive articles. . ." This is taken to mean that if as few as two Americans were affected by competitive imports, tariff rates could be raised. Beyond this, the Simpson bill would permit no reduction in tariff rates if Increased imports even threatened unemployment or injury to American workers, farmers, miners or producers. Where increased imports resulted from tariff rate reductions, the U. S. Tariff Commission would be required to report to the President and Congress a finding that the concession should be permanently withdrawn, suspended or modified, or that the quantity of imports be limited. Within 30 days after receiving such a report, the President would be required to put it into effect. the Doctor Says— By EDWIN P. JORDAN, M.D. Written for NEA Service Phlebitis is the medical term subsided the most important prob- used for inflammation of the lining I lem of treatment is to prevent of the veins: thrombophlebitis or ihlebothrombosis is the name np- ilied if clots are present inside the veins at the same time. Since inflammation of the lining of the veins is likely to bring about he formation of clots, thrombo- phlebitis is probably at least as common as simple phlebitis. This (I am referring to both conditions as one) Is certainly n nlserable affliction. It can result from varicose veins, from injury, from too much bed rest, particularly In the presence of chronic disease, from certain blood diseases, and from a number of other things, though quite often no definite cause can be found at all. There is Increased emphasis today on trying to prevent phlebitis or thrombophlebitis. Tills involves a multiple line of attack, but has to be entirely under the direction of a physician responsible for the patient because the methods vnry so much, and one must take into account other things besides the danger of developing these conditions. Once phlebitis or thrombophle- bitis have developed they should not be neglected, particularly because of the hazard of a clot breaking off and going to the lungs, causing what is known as a pulmonary embolism. When either condition Is acute, treatment includes absolute rest In bed, raising of the leg (If it is the leg which is Involved) and application of heat. After U» acute Inflammation lias swelling. Elastic bandages are particularly helpful In this kind pf thing, but they must be properly applied. Phlebitis or thrombophlebitis are hard to cure entirely and tend to coriie back. When this happens treatment is often difficult. It may be necessary to remove the Inflamed veins by surgery if they are near the surface. Seel; Infection's Source A thorough search for sources of infection is usually made, including examination of the' teeth and tonsils. Treatments with small doses of X-rays nnd the use of one of the sulfonamide drugs or antibiotics may be helpful. The prevention and treatment is' being constantly, improved. Early rising or mild exercise soon after an operation helps to prevent the blood in the veins from becoming stagnant. This does not appear to reduce the frequency of thrombo- phlebitis, but has cut down on pul- honary embolism. Some new drugs are also of help to prevent blood clotting. •JAC08Y x ON BRIDGE Watch Singletons In High Bidding Written for NKA Service When both sides are willing to make hlph bids, it is only reasonable to expect unbalanced distri- bution. In such a situation, you must be on the watch for singletons. South's lack of caution in this respect cost him an easy game contract in today's hand. West opened the king of diamonds, and dummy won with the ace. South saw a chance to get rid of his diamond loser, so he promptly led out the ace and king of hearts, throwing his losing diamond on the second top heart.

East took the ace of spades and returned his other trump, thus limiting the dummy to one ruffing trick. Since South could ruff only one club In dummy, he eventually had to give up one club trick to West's ace and another to East's Jack. The loss of two club tricks was more than he could afford.

Confessing that he's been offered fabulous sums from hotels in the Nevada gambling spa, he told me at Jack Benny's CBS-TV show rehearsal:: "They offered me $15,000 just to get on the train. I protested that I didn't have an act but they assured me, 'Fred, you don't neec an act.' "But why should I go to Las Vegas when the government gets all the money anyway?

WOULD-BE SLAVE IT'S hard to believe, but Clark Gable wanted the role of Demetrius, the slave, in "The Robe" just as much as he wanted the Rhett Butler part in "Gone With the Wind." It's one o! the reasons for Gable's break with his longtime agents. Lana Turner and Lex Barker attended a cocktail party in Paris and a film producer who had last seen Lana when she was making "The Merry Widow" turned to Lex and said: "Glad to see you and Lana still together, Mr. LAMAS!"

After South wins the first trick with dummy's ace of diamonds, the correct play is to lead a low club at once from the dummy. South plays the king of clubs to lorce out West's ace, thus allow- in'; West to take his diamond trick as well. After West has taken a club and a diamond, he may, if he wishes, lead a trump. If so, East takes the ace of trumps and returns the suit, limiting dummy to one ruff. But now, with the trumps drawn, South oan afford to cash dummy's iop heart In order to discard the one low club that he cannot ruff. If the defenders fall to lead ;rumps, of course. South can ruff both of his low clubs in the dummy. No matter what the defenders do. tney cannot defeat the contract.
