Mantle of Greatness Fits Upon few men does the mantle of greatness fit so snugly that tlieir fellows »e« m their lifetime how suitable it is. But, beyond all doubt, such H man is Winston Churchill. All free men can rejoice that their doughty champion has now attained the age of 80 years. It is good for the world when greatness endures. Sir Winston lias done more than surpass his Biblical three score and ten. He has made the last two decades of his life the most fruitful, the most triumphant of aH. He has climbed mountains whose peaks younger men could not even see. As long as free civilization exists upon this earth, the tnle will he told of this man and his works. People will hear of his unexampled brilliance of mind, of his inventive imaginative statesmanship, his raw animal courage, his furious energy, his amazing breadth of interest. They will hear how he cried out vainly but persistently against the political follies committed by free men in his own Britain and elsewhere in the bewildered era of false safety after World War I. -They will hear how he alone, by force of eloquence, by transmission to others of his unquenchable spirit, lifted his countrymen to unbelievable heights of resistance against the German colossus astride the European continent in World War II. And they will hear how he brushed off the ashes of political defeat to bring his country out of the postwar economic doldrums and to go searching for lasting peace in a world made treacherously unsafe by a mixture of communism and atomic energy. Not even the ravages of paralytic strokes upon his aging frame could turn him away from his quest or persuade him to lay down the burden of British leadership. He struggles on, still hopeful that his flickering energies may light the spark of real peace. This final prize may elude him But even if it does, history will say that Sir Winston Churchill sought peace ae earnestly as he prosecuted war. History will honor him for his unflagging effort in mankind's behalf. The last lines of his story are not yet written. Who can say that, as he battles along, peering with dimmed vision toward his cherished goal, this old man wiH not raise new monuments to his greatness, will not give free men fresh cause to be thankful they have him striving for their betterment? So long as he draws a breath, the world may somehow gain from it. No Barking, Please Probed by its humane instincts, the New York Public Library has altered a long standing rule. It has decided that dogs may hereafter be admitted to its sacred precincts. Up to now they've been parked outside, even on the coldest days. The library isn't giving the dogs free rein, though. Their masters have to keep them on leash. Of course the new arrangement will be nicer for the dogs. Maybe the library figures it will be better for their masters, too. Pretty homey setup, reading with the dog at your feet. It wouldn't be surprising to see some of the hounds trotting in with their masters' slippers between their teeth. Some delicate questions of library decorum may arise. Since signs reading "Silence, no barking, please" are not likely to make much of an impression, what happens when a few canine yipes break the august stillness? Will the library throw out just the dog, or the master, too? Until this thing shakes down a hit, possibly the authorities ought to hold competitions for good dog behavior. The winner, naturally, would be pooch-of-the- month. VIEWS OF OTHERS The Crying Town If men want to live longer, they've got to learn to blow their top regulnrly, like women do. One reason why women live longer than men IB that woroen let off pressure, through tears and occftsaionally hysterics, according to Dr. William T. Sowder of the United States Public Health Service. Release from pent-up tensions has been advocated generally. Ulcers arc caused sometimes by Btifllng thfi gorge that rises when the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune beset us. Maybe the rea.son why no few women, in comparison with man, get ulcers IB that they blow off steam now and then. If a man IK disappointed, or thinks he's being put upon, or crosacr In any way, he might, try to reason the situation out with others. Or lie may say nothing and let the poisons of fustrfitlon eat him up. But with a woman It's different. She Is able to cry and get away with It. She can go on a rampage— and be forgiven. She can nag. The alluaLlon Is deplorable. But what can be done about it'/ It isn't going to be easy to get men to take to crying. And many men don't want to make a habit of hysterics. Perhaps the thing to do is to organize men in city wide, countryside, or neighborhood groups. They can meet together ft ml tell one ftnoUwr all about their troubles. Build n modern walling wall, use a tremendous crying towel, That may not be the panacea to promote longevity among men. But at least it's a start In a riirccion.—Winston-Salcin (N.C.) Journal. Southward Neighbors In Washington lately some officials have boon neglecting our neighbors to the south. Timely advice on impvoviiiR our relations there was given in Dallas the other day by Dr. Lewis Hanke of the University of Texas, who has spent much time In Latin America. Professor Hanke, director of the university's Institute of Latin-America Studies, called for a realistic, long-range policy o( aid. As he pointed out, we can not make lasting friends on a cnush-and-rrLsis bn.sis. We will have to quit sending south envoys whose main qualification Is a big contribution to the party campaign chest. The need is for diplomats who understand Hie people of Lntln America and their economic needs. We can ill afford to give Latin Americans the impression that we want 'to be neighborly with them only in time of emergency when we need their help. With patience and persist once, we should be able to work out a program by which, without great cost to ouv own taxpayers, we can help the Latin nations to improve health conditions and to develop the great resources they have. —Dallas Morning News. SO THEY SAY The South is now in the early yenrs of it.s greatest period of change and ferment.

They hnd been doing Unitarian relief work In Geneva. First Noel, then his wife, went quietly to Prague and didn't come back. The Alger Hiss was then a major .sensation in the United States. Whillaker Chambers, who put the finycr on Hiss tis a Coin- inunist agent, declares in his book, "Witness." tlmf Mnssinp herself, in Hede Mnssinp herself, in her book "This Deception" and in testimony before eon^ressiorml committees, has revealed that Field was actually in her ceil to furnish U. S. government information on Russia to the U. S. S. R. . . . . Noel Field, after praduation from Harvard, joined the Stale nnuiviment. In U'-d. He rrstnuc- Inn yours Inter to work for th League of Nations in Geneva. Whittaker Chambers has written that Gen. Walter Krlvitky, onetime chief of Soviet Intelligence in Europe, declared that Field really went to Geneva to work for him, using; his League of Nations job and later his work for Unitarian relief as a convenient cover. This is tlie -substance of evidence to support the charge that Field was not an American spy against the Communists, as they charge, but a Communist spy. However. Hede Massing, in her book, suggests the possibility that Field broke with the Communists when lie left Washington. Whatever the facts of this great mystery, the U. S. Departments of State and Justice say there are nn outstanding charges against the Fields. U. S. Minister Christian Ravn- dal. In Hungary, has given an impression if indifference whether the freed Noel and Herta Field return to the United States or not. U. S. passports issued to the Fields have, of course, expired. New passports could be Issued by any U. S. consulate on their application. The State Department says it is ready to admit the Fields if they want to return to the United States. They could, of course, be brought back, in custody, if there were any charges outstanding against them. The statute of limitations would have run out on most matters. But on espionage cases, there is no time limit. Any number of such cases might be reopened if the Fields choose to tell all they know. Speculatively, the Fields could still be of some use to the Communists, if they choose to remain behind the iron curtain of silence. The first problem, of course, is to get them out from behind the Iron Curtain.. It is just possible they might not want to come. This might be one reason why Hermann, Noel and Herta Field might prefer to remain abroad, waitini to see what kind of a welcome they will get in their homeland, and what their legal situation will be In this country. But n sixty-four-dollar question arises here as to whether the Fields, as suspected Communists, could be readmitted to the United States. Noel Field was born in London, Mrs. Noel Field was bor n in Switzerland. Mrs. Hermann Field was born In England. Mrs. Wallach was bovn in Germany. They are naturalized Americans and as such they could be barred under the McCarran-Wiilter Immigration Act. Hermann Field and Mrs. Doub, his sister, are believed to be American born and therefore they have the right to come back to the United States as native American citizens. the Doctor Says- Written for NEA Service By EDWIN P. JORDAN, M.D. In looking over recent correspondence I was somewhat l to find four IptU-r.s asking for information concerning HodRkin's disease. The reason this seemed surprising is because Hodpkln's disease is not exactly common although it is. of course, of extreme interest to anyone? who acquires it or to family and friends of those who do. One of the letters is written by a man who says that his son and three others he knows whn have this disease are all excessive meat ticulocndothelial system. Because this sytem ts attacked the question of some infection being at fault has been considered. But so far no germ or virus has ever been proved as the cause. The patient with Hodgkin's disease usually goes through periods of encouraging improvement. The enlarged lymph glands may disappear almost completely and the general condition may improve for a Ion gtime. The long used and usually preferred form of treatment is with eaters. "My son." he said, "be- j X-rays. This often causes improve ' " ' ment lasting for months at a time. Treatment with drugs has not been fore he had this dlseiise made the assertion that whon he got married he would rpnlly ent all the meat he \vnntetl. In two years of Tliere have been some favor- particularly successful. treatment of patients with Hodgkin's disease with preparations called "nitrogen mustards." These substances seem 10 be quite helpful for some patients who have become resistent to X-rays. Other drugs or lines of attack are under Investigation, but nothing as yet developed is thoroughly satisfactory. making good his threat he con- j able reports on the ;racted it and I wonder if this meat angle has ever been considered." So far ns I know "the meat an- le" has never been considered in so far as U relates to the cause of Horigkin's disease. It seems unlikely that there child be any re- .ationsliip and H is probably just in accident that the correspqnd? ent knows of (our people with iodgkln's disease, all of whom vere heavy nicat eaters. Hodgkin's disease Is more common in young people than In older ines and more frequent In men han in women. It has been reported from every part of the world. There is no danger of catch- ng it from a patient. The first sign Is usually (but not Iways) enlargement of the lymph lands in the neck. The swollen glands are not painful. After a vhilp. perhaps months or years nter. glands in other parts of the iody may become enlarged. It dors not interfere with general veil-being for a long time, but gradually anemia tends to devcl- ip. A small amount of fever may »e present and the patient slowly becomes thin.

It caused a swing of more than 2000 points in a recent team match, thus proving that a little luck is sometimes more powerful than a lot of skill. Both tennis got to a quite reasonable contract of seven spades. The skillful declarer went down, but the lucky declarer made the grand slam. First, let's see how the expert played the hand. He won the first NORTH 4KJ87 VQ6 » AK63 *K52 WEST EAST A 10 3 2 * 54 ¥109854) V73 * J7 *84 1 + 1* 4N.T. SN.T. 7* 4 Q 10 9 52 *Q973 SOUTH (D* 4AQ98 V AKJ 4>84 *AJK>« North-South vui.

Next, he cashed the top diamonds and ruffed a diamond with the nine of spades. West overruled with the ten of spades, and that was that. What was so expert about this line o( play? South wanted to make thirteen tricks without guessing which opponent had the queen of club.;. The nine of spades would ba a Mfe nitt X UM diamond! Erskins Johnson IN HOLLYWOOD HOLLYWOOD— (NBA) —Hollywood on TV: It's a sad season for the TV prophecy boys. The morticians who buried "I Love Lucy" because it just couldn't stay up there so long are as red-faced as the scoffers who sneered at "My Little Margie." Lucy's still a national habit, and Margie, in its 104th episode, toppled Arthur Godfrey out of Wednesday's top 10 TV'Shows last month. More and more shows and stars have switched, or are contemplating, Hollywood telefilm while the live spectaculars turned out to be floptaculars. Increased good will between movies and TV caught the prophecy kids off base, too. Almost every film star is available for TV today. Movie production has been cut in half but profits are bigger because TV forced Hollywood to Junk quantity for quality. Television, as a matter of fact, now provides 46 per cent of the total working time for the 8,000 members of the Hollywood Screen Actors Guild. JACK BENNY can do no wrong as far as I'm concerned, but TViewers are complaining to me about his smug "isn't this funny" smiles direct to the camera in the midst of his laugh plots. They say they don't mind Jack playing to the camera in his opening monolog, but that his lens- peeking between plot lines is irritating and unnecessary. "Never look at the camera" is rule No. 1 In the ABC's of movie emoting. Maybe it should apply to TV laugh-getting, too. Honywood hears that Sid Caesar's show is just about washed up. With Imogene Coca's ratings in trouble, too, their reteaming next season after this year's split- up seems likely. If pride Isn't the stumbling block, of course. Gene Raymond's signed for a new panel series, "What Goes On?" Another movie doll, Diana Lynn, says she prefers live to filmed TV. Her reasoning: "A big live TV show is a classy thing. In Holly- were 4-3 or if East (instead of West) happened to be short of diamonds, or if the player with short diamonds had only two trumps Instead of three. The odds were far better than 2 to 1 that South could ruff safely with the nine of spades, whereas the odds may be only about even on guessing which opponent has the queen of clubs. South would be practically home if he got by with the nine of spades. He would lead a heart to dummy's queen, ruff the last diamond with the queen of spades, and enter dummy with the king of clubs to draw the last trump with the jack of spades. Now South could take the ace of clubs and discard dummy's last club on the ace of hearts. Dummy would win the thirteenth trick with the last trump. South might still run into trouble if the player with the last trump managed to ruff the queen of hearts or the king of clubs. The lucky declarer won the first trick likewise with the king of hearts and drew three rounds of trumps. He next cashed the ace and jack of hearts, discarding a diamond from dummy. As it happened, although this could not have been foreseen. East discarded on the third round of hearts. Declarer next cashed the top diamonds and ruffed a diamond. By this time it was clear that West could hold only' two clubs, and South therefore decided to play East for the queen 6f clubs. This play worked, and South therefore made his slam. wood a telefUm is treated like • Z movie." TELEFILM MAKERS like Lucy and Jack Webb may argue with Diana on that point, but she has another reason—not being able to see herself on the screen. Says Diana: "There's no preview or premiere to worry about when you do live TV. You can keep your illusions. You can imagine you were very good and very attractive." Sudden thought: Can't "Waterfront" dock-umentary? be called a Vincent Price will quizmaster a new series, "Key Witness." Mrs. Rosemary Rettig, mother of kid star Tommy Rettig, didn't bat an eyelash when someone told her, "You know, that dog Lassie is stealing many of the pictures in the 'Lassie' TV series from your son." "Tommy," replied Mrs. Rettig, "is planning: to buy an apartment house with the money he's getting from the pictures Lassie is stealing from him." Van Heflin blasted TV series as bad for stars the other day but Dan Duryea is happily saying he's never had it so good in movies since his China Smith episodes hit the home screens. Says Dan: "I've just finished my seventh movie this year. A lot of producers who would never buy me as anything but a killer saw me in their living rooms as a pretty sympathetic character in the series." JOHN SHRWOOD told Leo Guild he wrote a horse race tory for TV. Running Hm« to 28:30 and two fifths. Joanne Woodward, a TV actress, landed a big Fox contract on the strength of a video kinescope clip.

Scripters must avoid civil cases which are usually dull. Never try an unsolved case on TV. Keep in mind the laws that govern invasion of privacy. Avoid cases that are 'sexy.'' The romance or what passed for one may be over, but Joanne Rio wants permission to talk about Liberace in the night-club act she's preparing. She's awaiting the okay from his managers.
