'Road-E-O' Driving Contest Can Build Traffic Safety Th« hazards of aiilomotivc traffic, Ww the weather, are much discussed with prscious litlls remedial aclion Jorthootning. For thin rea»on, we feel the Junior Ctiambw of Commerce is due acknowledgement for its sponsorship of Hie "Ro»d-e-o" tecn-Rge driving contest to b« held heve Friday. This competition consists of H written lest on traffic rules plus live driving tests. Contemplating these testa, w« were brought to wonder how many adult drivers could pass them. Not many, we're sure. And there are doubtlessly a sizable number of teenage drivers who could not pass these t*gt«. Driving has come to be a soma- what taken-for-granted, any-fool-cnn- do-it proposition. Wliereas we take pride in doing our jobs well, in furnishing our homes tastefully and in keeping our golf score's low, too mnny of us slop through the operation of an automobile as it were an unpleasant chore. This "Road-e-o" will not only give some teen-age drivers an opportunity to prove their ability and judgment in car- handling, but it also will show others- adults included—that care and accuracy in driving are talents worth developing. A little pride in being able to drive a car well—which also means safely:—will do more than bolster ego. U may mean keeping that ego alive. Retreat of British Interests In China Reveals Relations Officially the British government still recognises Kelt China. But a truer index of British-Chinese relations is the action of Britain's business interests in abandoning their huge investments in Communist-hold mainland nro;is. By this move British corporations are tossing to the winds a sum variously estimated at from ?8.">0,ODO.OOO lo Sl,_ 400.000,000. which is represented by factories, docks, warehouses, shipyards, hotels and other establishments. They are giving up because under Mao Tse Tung's Red regime they have been hounded by fines, special taxes, and the necessity of paying full wages to their Chinese employes even though their business has been at a virtual standstill for long months. Whereas these firms once used 10.000 Britishers, the total is down to 120, and these now wish to get out. In short, British business managers merely wish to recognize a fact. Their business lias been substantially killed and they have been subjected to intolerable burdens and interference. There is no sane rea- <on to hang on. To R proud trading nation, a country fabled for its overseas enterprise, decisions of this kind are extremely hard. Already Britain's trading empire has shrunk almost beyond the imaginings of a decade ago. Now it is formally accepting another shrinking of its effective economic orbit. Since the Reds' harassment of British business in China has been deliberate, it must naturally he concluded this is the result M;io seek.s. lie is getting rid of British trade influence in his territory. We shall see hereafter what advantage tin's brings to the Chinese. On the basis of performance to date, we may be forgiven for doubting the gains. To put Britain's sizable enterprises into Rod Chinese hands will be pretty much like turning over the niaiiitgomeiit of General Motors' central office lo the overnight clean-up squad. It is a curious paradox that despite these uncomfortable realities British policy still calls for recognition of Mao. Theoretically there may be sound international law in support of accepting « regime which has full control of the area it rules. But in practice British recognition ha.s been a fiasco. The British diplomatic representative at Peking has been steadily snubbed since his arrival more than two years ago. Obviously the policy has no advantage and has degenerated into an empty formula. Winston Churchill's government might be moved and cancel it out were it not ..for Labor I'aily and other opposition. The opponents seem to argue that any gesture of conciliation toward China is a hopeful thing, even if it produces nothing. Perhaps it can be said most accurately that Britain rccognivcea China but China dot's not recognize the British. How long this one-sided display of iiitcrnniional good intentions can sensibly continue is hard lo guess. But the precipitate withdrawal of British business is the tip-ofl on the way things really are. Views of Others Tax Deception Broadened Alaybe It wwt inevitable under the growing philosophy or "do nothing for yourself you can Jet the Government do lor you.'' But ft is a Jar cry from the early Americans who regarded as .fightinx words JIHV hint they hnrtji't Iht 1 intelligence find ability to handle their own financial affnirs, We refer to the Internal -Revenue Bureau's new regulation that einplojre|_'njny request employers lo deduct enough additional withholding lax thnl the worker will have no fax bnliuice lo pay at the end of each year. Thai is so the mun who lins outside Income not subject to employer withholding will not have to take the responsibility of laying nside savings himself to meet the Federal levy on the excess. The effect is to welcome to the fold of the self-deceived the high- bracket earners who are so improvident they cannot endure or survive the discipline of direct taxation. Antl happily for Washington's disciples of Eocifillsm, it furthers the withholding system they ore eager lo Impose on all wages, profits and dividends, and the delusion that tux rates are not so high after all. If there is any single move that would cut Federal lux rates, it would be lotal abandonment of the withholding ulnn, that, individuals miyht become acutely conscious of the sums being taken away from them that they now never .see. Were they forced lo save and pay from IJieir pockets hi one lump this bite Icvtrd by Uncle Sam. the uproar would be im- nierti.ite and effective. Withholding was instigated dining World War n on the full laxts couJd not otherwise be collected (rotn transient war workers.

Hoffman says money is not rolling into the Eise'n- howcr campaign headquarters, all other reports to the contrary. When a last-minute call came in from New Hampshire for $5000 to buy radio time before Hie primary, Hoffman himself, who was in California, had to get busy on a Sunday afternoon. He raised $4500. Then when the Ike backers came close to being mousetrapped in New Jersey through a belief that an easy victory was in the bag, it became necessary to raise 335,000 in a hurry for advertising to get out the vote- It was touch and EO for every dollar. Mr. Hoffman concedes that a few angels and fat cats might be found to finance the entire cam- pnign, but his committee has steered away from big contributions and has tried to get smaller gifts from more people. A ceiling of around S3000 has been set on individual contributions. OKLAHOMA Sen. Robert S. Kerr's newly opened Washington headquarters for his Democratic presidential nomination campaign is concentrating on playing down the fact that their man Is a rich oil tycoon. What they are trying to play up Is that good ol r Bob is a one-gaHus type of guy who was actually born in n log cabin.

East's jaw dropped a foot when the opening club lead was ruffed. Mickey then led hearts and overruled East on the third round. "He put East in with the nee and another diamond, and ruffed the diamond return in dummy, after whicli he continued his plan of pushing hearts through. East's only other trick was an overruff of the dummy on a diamond lead. "Of course, six hearts is the best spot for North-South. The play there is fairly interesting too: It East opens a spade or a club. West makes one trump trick, period. "If East gets fancy and leads a diamond, lie will soon regret it when North runs his trumps and puts him itl a three-suit squeeze for seven. "This discussion Is. purely hypothetical, since nobody was permitted to play in that contract; all the other East-West pairs made sacrifice bids In clubs. "Thus East's double not only located the cards for declarer, but It possibly talked his partner out of a good sacrifice. You might draw moral from this about the wisdom of doubling opponents who have •cached a contract on their own .team.
