An Aid Plan For Asia New ideas in foreign policy are as rare as violets in January. So naturally interest is stirred by talk in certain government circles of a different kind of "Marshall Plan" for Asiatic countries. What distinguishes this proposal from the original, highly successful European, version is that the United States would not be the sole contributor of aid funds. One senator, indeed, believes we should not even be the chief contributor. Under the terms suggested, European nations which we have helped to find economic recovery would join us In extending assistance to underdeveloped Asiatic lands struggling for higher levels of living. There would be a sort of neat justice in the spectacle of once-prostrate European folk lending a financial hand to others as America's hand not long ago was extended to them. More than that, with such a broad cooperative base, the program unquestionably would have greater appeal to the Asians themselves. Too many Asians still see something "imperalistic" in almost every move the United States makes in Asia. However unreasonable this may be, we still must find means of combatting it. A third vital consideration which makes the cooperative aspect of the proposal attractive is that the American Congress is unlikely to approve a sweeping aid plan for Asia under which the U. S. alone would bear the burden. We have already borne the aid load too long in too many places. The proposal would resemble the Marshall Plan more closely in one major respect: The Asiatic countries would be asked to form an organization of their own, like the one in Europe, to formulate a program of needs and requests. If such a unit could be formed, it could have a very wholesome effect on the free Asian peoples. They would be given important practice in the habit of working together, as they do not now do. With that practice, many nations not presently a part of the SEATO defense pact might be more inclined to participate in the common defense of Asia. No one imagines even so imaginative a plan as this new one would have easy sledding with lawmakers grown weary of handing out U. S. aid. But certainly this proposal, rooted at it is in the idea that America would be just one of several helping nations, ought to get a very earnest look from Congress. ' If we expect "coexistence" with communism to work for our benefit, we cannot sit idly by and watch Asia flounder. This Marshall-type proposal may or may not be the right one. But beyond all doubt we are going to have to devise tome plan. Remove the Cloud Alger Hiss has now paid his legal debt to society. But many signs indicate he will continue to be a public figure for some time, and it seems right that he should be. For Hiss owes his country a moral debt as well, and this he has not yet discharged. Hiss, of course, has always maintained his innocence of charges that he spied for Russia back in the I930's. He flatly denied many accusations. To meet others he told a story that never was convincing. It was shot through with con- traditions, unexplained happenings, and direct conflicts with the testimony of other persons. It is quite unlikely that he could ever fit the pieces together in a manner that would satisfy his own contentions of innocence. But if he does not try to tell the full story in a connected, convincing fashion, he may find it difficult to achieve any sort of real acceptance in the society lie has now entered again. Any man who has served his scnlcn- tence should sooner or later gain the opportunity to rhabililale himself, to make himself a useful citizen once more. Yet Hiss surely will not get that chance until he acts courageously to remove the cloud that surrounds his puzzling life. VIEWS OF OTHERS Mittens For Fried Chicken! A new day (K dawning for the fried chicken eater, which means about everyone. A restaurant in Montreal, Canada, supplied customers with plastic mittens the other day so they could handle drumsticks the way they should be handled— and there wasn't a greasy finger in the place. Here is something that mankind has boen waiting for and we predict that the chicken mittens will spread across the land with the speed of Hurricane Hazel. We are puzzled that It has been so long In coming, considering the need, but now that It is here any malice we hnvc felt for the men of science of their procrastination is forgotten. They have come up with an Invention comparable in Importance to the knife and fork. The trencherman should flml it a godsend. Not only can he use It as a cockerel-clutchcr, It will be equally handy In the sweetcorn department. The handlers now used by the fnstedlous—and and scorned by hoi polloi—to facilitate consumption of corn on the rob, never quite filled the bill. Because of the slippage inherent In the handler, it is Impossible to co-ordinate thri champ with the turn. The chicken mitten (or cob-clasper) will surmount this difficulty nnd the rachct-mcthod of consumption will come into full and universal flower. The mitten should also enhance the eating ol spnreribs and perhaps even spiced crab apples. The more we ponder the potentials of the thing, the more fascinated we become. The mitten might even serve the wearer well In case of fire.

'Well, It's a Beginning, Monsieur' Peter fdson's Washington Column — Party Oath, Chairman Selection Were Top Problems of Democrats WASHINGTON — Democratic National Committee has another big problem on its hands in addition to the election of a new national chairman to succeed retiring Stephen A. Mitchell. This is to flna n solution for the troublesome party loyalty oath question which darn near wrecked the national convention at Chicago n 1052. Electing the new national chair- nan from nearly a dozen candidates now being proposed by various [actions will get most of the question Is no less important because It looks ahead to writing rules for the Democratic national convention of 1950, A big rules .subcommittee headed by Steve Mitchell himself has born studying this problem, off and on, over since '52. On the committee nre governors, senators, representatives, delegates to the last convention and other party lenders who are not nit members of the National Committee. The idea was to get broad representation from every faction and every section of the country, so no one could complain about whatever decision wns reached. If n solution is not found at the New Or leti us meeting, it is expected that the committee will be instructed to work on tho problem some more. And U is po.x^ible that Mr. Mitchell will be nskrd to stny on as chairman of this committee until n new formula i.s found. The way the rule rends now, every state delegation seated at a national convention is required to "exert every to get the promise that it will honorable means names of the party's presidential and vice presidential nominees on its state's Democratic ballots. The purpose of this rule, worked out by the National Committee prior to the opening of the 1952 Chi- cntfo convention, was to prevent a bolt of Southern Dixlecrats. In the 1948 election, Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi nnd South Carolina had refused to support the Truman-Barkiey ticket. They threw their 38 electoral votes to the Dixiccrat, J. Strom Thurmond, instead. Truman won the election In spite of this desertion, but the Democratic leaders naturally wanted to avoid a repetition. It was the late Sen. Blair Moody, of Michigan who was chosen to introduce the resolution calling for the loyalty oath. It started one of the most dramatic fights of any convention. South Carolina, Virginia and Louisiana delegations refused to accept the oath. South Carolina bolted, but then came back. Louisiana's Sen. Russell Long broke with his state's Gov. Robeit F. Kennon over withdrawal and Convention Chairman Sam Rnyburn of Texas ruled the Louisiana votes would be cast by the Long (action. This permitted Senator Long to cast his state's votes for reseating Virginia's delegation. It had objected to the loyalty oath on the the Doctor Written for NEA Service r By EDWIN P. JORDAN.

The reason this | „ latter statement cnn be nnide is' shown emphysema in about one person in twenty although far fewer than this number .show nny signs of the condition during life. Emphysema is basicnlly a loss of elasticity of the tissues of the Umg, which means that all the air is not emptied out when a person exhales. Thus, if larse portions of the lungs are involved a person may not get enough air from breathing and develop shortness of breath, especially when the need air Is increased by exercise. There nre many conditions which can lead to this loss of elasticity nnd dilation of the breathing cells. Any chronic infection of the limps, chronic asthma, or a sciious dt'fonnily. can bring on em- Erskine Johnson IN HOLLYWOOD grounds that Virginia state law assured the party's nominees of a place on the ticket. After Virginia was reseated, South Carolina and Louisiana regular delegations were granted full voting rights at the convention. But a compromise to the loyalty oath was adopted "for this convention only." It specified that the loyalty commitment "shall not be in contravention of" state laws or party regulations. What the Mitchell subcommittee on convention rules has to do Is provide a new rule that will not cause any flareup if this kind in 1956. In trying to treat this old sore, the Democratic National Committee is really applying medication on a couple of other convention illnesses. First is the problem of getting the ground rules lor the 1956 convention worked out in advance, so as to save time. Second is to speed up convention procedure on polling various state delegations. The long delays caused when some alternate delegate with a half vote demands a poll of his state have always been a pain in the neck to other delegates and to Ihe radio and TV audiences as well. What the Democrats Want for 1956 is a streamlined convention with fewer fights and more harmony.

The studios was Garfield's home lot for years. Now and see of diamonds and shut up shop for the day, but there wasn't much else for him to do. If he led spades, dummy would get a free finesse with the king-ten; and if he led clubs. South would discard a diamond nnd make an overtrlck. back to the second trick what happens if West leads his low spade instead of the queen. Dummy plays low. East puts up the eight, find South wins with the ace of spades. Declarer now draws trumps and begins the diamonds, as before. When East wins the second round of diamonds with the Jack, however, it is perfectly safe . for him to return a spade. West's queen will force out dummy's king of spades. This puts East in position to win a trick with the Jack of spades when he is given his oth er diamond trick.
