Educational Revolution A quiet revolution, accompanied only by the hum of the motion picture projector, is under way in the nation'n schools. Educational films, once as much of * novelty as an entrancing commencement address, today are becoming a staple in countless classrooms across the country. Most of their mushrooming growth has occurred since World War II. Though what the educators call audio-visual education is now 25 years old, it was the war which gave these techniques their big push toward wide use in schools. Millions of men had to be taught in a hurry—and taught well. So films were heavily and successfully relied upon. The experience evidently was an eye-opener to educators. In fast-growing states like California, the movie projector proved a lifcsaver. In many others, its value became increasingly apparent. Educational authorities came to regard films not as a lunchtime treat or an occasional supplement to the schooling process but as an integral part of teaching. Some undoubtedly would go so far as to say indespensable part. There seems no doubt of the leaching effectiveness of sound films when they are widely used. They need only to be fitted naturally and easily into the regular course of instruction. In some fields, other methods of instruction could not possibly match the Visual treatment. Todays films range over such varying topics as atomic energy, constitutional checks and balances, Newton's experiments with gravity, the workings of the inner ear, how the laws of heredity operate, and so on. Actually, there aren't enough film prints available in most cases to meet the swelling demand. Big city school systems can exhaust the supply quickly. Some slates and cities have libraries from which school? can rent films. But a more satisfactory practice seems lo be the growing habit of pooling film resources of five to ten schools to permit more frequent showings of the most useful pictures. An affiliale of Encyclopedia Britannica makes about 70 films a year, more than any single Hollywood studio, and it now has a catalogue of more than 750. But these and other efforts still fall short of filling the market. If the judgments of our best professional educators are goud, then this clamor for educational films is just about the healthiest thing that has hit the schools in many a day. Particularly at a time when the nation's school system suffering from too many inadequately trained teachers, the value of expertly produced films is abundantly clear. Funds for improvement of the schools ««*y to oom« by thww dayt. But, whatever new money can be turned up, some of it ought to find its way into expansion of educational films. They're some of the most cheerful news to be found in our hard-pressed classrooms today. Communist Justice Much mystery surrounds the case of the long-missing Noel Field and his wife, who disappeared behind the Iron Curtain in 19<19. Without, attempting to judge Field in any way, we can see in his treatment a beautiful example of Ihe workings of Communist justice. According to the Hungarian radio, which announced his release, Field had been arrested on spy charges. Quite matler-of-factly, as he had spent no more than a weekend in jail, Hungary now says the charges have been dropped because they could not be "justified." Five years is a long time to keep a man wailing while it is determined that he shouldn't be kept, waiting. The story may be much more complex than appears on the surface. But if the reality is anything like the present appearance, this is one of the wierdcst demonstrations in the weird record of alleged Communist justice. v'lEWS OF OTHERS A Woman's Place The old saying "a woman's plnce Is In the home," has long since been revised to rend "ft woman's place is anywhere she chooses It to be." Alter tribulation of the recent election results, it appears that "n woman's plnce is in Congress." ' the women chose to run, and the voters chose the women. The new Congress will have an unprecedented number of women In Its ranks. There will be totnl of 17 women In Congress, four of them newly elected. Every woman member of Congress who ran for a second term was re-elected. Noe every aspiring woman was elected, however, as demonstrated In Virginia, where Dr. Charmenz Lenhart was unsuccessful In her bid for ft Mouse seat. Men have had lo give ground nnd Congress Is no exception. Few legislators, however, would deny that the women who were elected served well in Congress. Many showed courage In squarely facing Issues which their male colleagues diulged or straddled. This session they will Have more o( an opportunity than ever to "acquit themselves like men"— or is this an admirable trait when transplanted to the floor of Congress? Uncioubtably, the large numbers of women voters helped elect the women lo Congress, but due to the secret bnllot we do not know whether it was a strict battle o[ the sexrs with lire women voters outnumbering the men. This Is unlikely, for many women will vote upatnst a woman no matter how capable she Is, Just because she Is a woman. Some men will do likewise. Whether women are by nalure suited for the more rough and tumble aspects of Congressional lite Is debatable. It is also uncertain as to whether or not there Is always one feminine approach to every lefiislntlve question. Usually, however, (hoy are in (avor of humanitarian or "srK-iiil leglsla- tion" more than the men and as n vulc work harder to do anything to prevent wnr. One thing appears certain: They are in Congress to slay nnd their ranks there will continue to swell. As a result, (he nvprnm> housewife Is mure Interested In doings on Cnpltol Hill than ever before. The male candidates fire forced to conduct better campaigns and to meet the Issues smmrcly. The Indies may well make gentlemen out of some ConBressmen.—Portsmouth (Va.i Star. Normal, More Normal Rus-slnn Premier Growl Malenkov Is supposed to have told U. S. Ambassador Charles E. Bohlen that he wants to establish "more normal" relations with the West. That presupposes th;it American-Soviet relations have been "normal" Which, of course they haven't been since the Sirs! day ol Amerlciui recognition of the Soviet Union. MalenUov's •'jaw-jaw" with Ambassador Bohlen Is in line with the current Communist talk about the possibilities of "peaceful co-existence." But if that phrase means absence of major wnr with Russia, we arc supposed to have had that the last 21 years. Unfortunately, the adjectives which describe our existence with Soviet Russia since 1933 are the antonyms of "peaceful"—that is. agitated, disturbed, troubled, turbulent, simmy.—Knoxvllle (Tenn.» News-Sentinel.

And There WAS Light Peter Edsan's Washington Column — Naming of D.K. Bruce by Secretary Of State Dulles Surprised Demos WASHINGTON — (NEA) — It came us .something of a surprise to Democratic National Committee headquarters and to Democratic leaders o n Cnpltol Hill to learn thul David K. E. Bruce was their party's "consultant" with the State Department and Republican Secretary John Posier Dulles for the carrying out of a bi-partisan foreign polioy. Secretary Dulles Identified Mr. Bruce as his liaison man at WiishiiiRlon Ihe word got (o Purls, where Mr. Bruce runs his special mission and maintains his headquarters, It may have .surprised him. too. Them Is no doubt but that Mr. Bruce i.s n DemorrvU. He wns born one. the stm of U. S. Sen. William C. Bruce of Maryland. He ran for the Maryland legislature in 1923 when he was 25 years old. He was elected on a platform of repealing j Officially, Mr. Bruce was given press conference. U a heavy contributor to Democratic campaign funds. But as Democratic consultant nnd maker of bipartisan foreign policy with the Republicans—that's a job he was never given officially. Records at the State Department personnel offices don't even Indicate thftt Mr. Bruce is rated that high. He doesn't even have the rank of "ambassador" which Mr. Dulles had when he was Republican adviser to the Democratic-controlled State Department. Mr. Bruce is on the payroll under a rating of foreign service reserve officer, "class one." This pays $12,000 to $14,000 a year, only half of whnt an ambassador gets. Money is of no particular object to Mr, Bruce, however, because he's independently wealthy. He works lor the government for the love prohibition, legali/int: horse racing and prolrcluit; fox hunting Moving to Virginia and settling;—only a month after inauguration, down as a gentleman farmer 10] The title that went with the job his present job in Europe by President Eisenhower in February, 1953 years late]-.

His office, separate Erskine Johnson IN HOLLYWOOD from the U. S. embassy in Paris is known as "The Bruce Mission. Secretary Dulles says all thi work which Mr. Bruce is doing ii Europe is comparable to the wor] to which Mr. Dulles himself dii in Asia under Democratic admin istrations — negotiating the Japa nese peace treaty and dealing wit the Korean situation. But Mr. Dul les also served on U. S. delega tions to United Nations. Comparably, Secretary Dulle says Mr. Bruce was one of hi advisers at the recent London, Par- Is and Berlin conferences. But Mr. Dulles was picked for his liaison work between Republicans and the Democratic administration by GOP presidential candidate Thomas E Dewey and the late Senate GOP leaders, Arthur Vnndenberg and Robert A. Taft. Mr. Bruce was picked by President Eisenhower and not as a representative of Governor Adlai Stevenson, or Democratic congressional leaders Sam Rayburn and Lyndon Johnson. The last two are now representng themselves in bipartisan conferences with the President at the White House. There is no question in anyone's mind as to Mr. Bruce's fitness to be a policy adviser to the State Department. During World Wnr II he helped Gen. "Wild Bill" Dono- vnn organize the Office of Strategic Services, then became its European operating head. The French call him the most effective American since Benjamin Frnnklin. HOLLYWOOD .—(NBA)— Hollywood on TV: "Movie film is the answer to situation comedy and adventure - type shows on television." A movie studio boss talking? Uh- itih. The words are those of the west coast program boss for CBS-TV— dynamic Harry Ackerman — who wouldn't have dared whisper them even to a CBS prop-shop dummy few years back. Television was hailed as a"live" medium in the days of seven and 10-inch screens, and a network vi- deoman caught with a can of movie [ilm on his desk qualified himselt for deportation. But with CBS' made-in-Hollywood 'I Love Luoy" blazing the xvay, telefilm roomed to popular favor. This season 17 filmed-in-Hollywood shows are riding the CBS channel, with 10 of them under Ackerman's supervision. Planning three more — "The Al- drlch Family," a new "Irma, ' and a Coast Guard adventure series, "The Mighty O.," he told me: "I believe more and more shows will be on film but the variety and big dramatic shows will continue live. Comedy timing can be better on film and re-issues are important." OTHER HIGH - LEVEL projects on Ackerman's CBS - Hollywood desk: Plans for several one-hour filmed shows starring Bing Crosby; talks with Greta Garbo about making her TV debut in a home-screen version of "Romance," and luring Humphrey ogart before the "Climax" show cameras in an Ernes' Hemingway story. Now that Claudette Colbert is in the CBS stable, I was curious As a movie queen, she never per mitted the left side of her face lo be photographed. But CES-TV c meras caught both sides of the Colbert face on "The Best ol Broadway" show from New York Ackerman smiled. "You know something?" he asked. .."The network didn't eeBirceea "The network didn't receive a single phone call, letter or tele gram from anyone saying, 'The left side of Claudette Colbert's face sure looked funny.'

If you could see t-he involved ureas of the lungs they would look much like a bunch of grapes. Coughing by a person w i t n bronchiectasis usually brings up a heavy mucus sputum, often having a foul odor. Accurate din-jnosis, however, depends on special examinations, including an X-ray film. A remarkable Instrument called a bronchoscope, by which the dilated pockets can be seen by the physician, may also be used. Once bronchiectasis has developed the first step in treatment Is to .find out if Ihe condition which produced the bronchiectasis Is still active. If It is. appropriate treatment must be directed at the active cause. Until recently treatment of bron- chiectasis was unsatisfactory. Now, however, many good results have been reported from the use of penicillin given by Injection or inhalation. The other method of treatment which is satisfactory for many of those with bronchiectasis. especially when the condition is advanced, is surgery. The part of the lung affected with bronchiectn- sis can be removed by surgery pretty successfully and this has undoubtedly saved many lives.

This is a good time to explain one of the differences, since' the national championships are just about to begin in Atlanta this weekend. One important difference .is that you play a hand as safely as possible in rubber bridge, giving up NORTH 27 *82 ¥Q 105 * A K J 8 4 .+ K105 WEST EAST 4AQ974 V976 » 732 + 63 South 1 * 1 N.T.

Pass Pass Opening lead — 4 7 some of your chance for overtricks in order to make sure ol the contract. In a tournament, in most hands, you have to play for all possible tricks, even if this risks the contract for the sake of extra tricks. The difference is Illustrated In the hand shown today. West opens the seven of spades, East plays the ten, and South wins with the Jack. South counts one spude, Jour clubs, and one heart. Hi therefore must develop the diamonds to make his contract. At rubber bridge, Sou'h would do his best to develop the dia-| nuodf wltbc* •JtowiiW CM* M ,,-in the lead. For this reason, he would cash the ace and king o diamonds instead oi finessing. Thi play would drop the queen of dia monds, and South would then pro ceed to make the first U tricks. Mind you, South wouldn't be ex peeling to drop the doubleton queen of diamonds. If the queen didn't happen to drop, he woult 1 lead a third dlnmond in the hopi that West had it; for another spadi lead from the West hand would no threaten the contract. The only point is that South ca afford to lose a trick to West am cannot afford to lose It to East He therefore does whatever he ca U keep East out. In a tournament, South would try to avoid the loss of a diamond trick altogether. No declarer can afford to refuse the diamond finesse and thereby take the chance that he will wind up with one trick, less than anybody else who plays the hand. So every gie" show., Charles Parrell pays a call on Verne Albright. As one of Jack Benny's forthcoming guest stars, Edgar Bergen be working more and more without the aid of Charlie McCar- hy and Mortimer Snerd as a result of his small-screen click as himself in "Lend an Ear." He's even gotten over his litters about live TV and told me: "I've gained experience by doing TV In the east. Living in Hollywood too long is like living hack- stage too long." Linda Leighton. who plays Hazel in "One Man's Family," has acted in over 200 live stanzas, plus 100 telefilms. Her verdict in the live- vs.-film debate: "It's more fun live. Filmed shows seem pretty dull to me." The Saturday matinee circuit has given Bud Abbott and Lou Costello a whole new generation of kid fans for their 2 half-hour telefilms. 'It's like the old days when we first started In Hollywood," says Lou. "The kids mob us everywhere." Current plans for the comics call for filming additional stanzas in color in different countries on a world tour.

Her dressing room has become her on-the-set office, where she checks scripts, writes checks and makes decisions. Wails Joan: "A woman has a few beauty secrets she likes too keep to herself in her dressing room.
