At least there'd be less room for argument. Ike Seeks Sound Balance Between Outlays and Cuts For a good while President Eisenhower has been standing in a heavy crossfire. From one side he has been fired upon by men who think nearly any economy proposals fall far short of realizable goals. But in 'his budget - tax - security speech, the President disclosed he is well armored for this combat. He is determined to avoid extremes of either spending or cutting. He proposes to hew to a middle line he feels will lead to the best kind of security for Americans. Mr. Eisenhower made the case for this approach strongly, and convincingly. If he can help it, he will not allow budget reductions which would imperil America. And he measures the danger from the Soviet Union as both real and large. On the other hand, neither will the •President blandly assume that genuine savings are impossible. Quite the contrary, he believes economies must be achieved if the United States is to gain in a military 'way and yet not yield another sort of victory to the Russians. That victory could come from a ruinous American inflation, from a steady sapping of our resources until we were bled white, from costly buildups toward successive crises whose decisive moments are always just around the corner. Mr. Eisenhower sees the Russian threat as long continuing. He dots not think the menace will reach a peak by some stated deadline, and then fade. Any program attuned to this latter notion he views as unwise and impractical. He wants to plan for sound, satisfying American living in an "age of danger." He acknowledges that many honest men measure the peril differently. They feel the only safety rests in a given number of plants by 1955, or so many atomic artillery pieces, or 50 H-bombs, and so on. The President has let all these pleaders state their cases fully and vigorously. But in the end he has overridden them. He declares that anything less than total mobilization for war puts the nation on a guesswork basis in terms of security. In consequence, he thinks it Polish to insist we are lost if we do not "" ve that certain number of air wings, Sombs, or tanks. R .t he plainly seeks is to put the into what might be called an isture of defense — a position hich it could spring to action hostile attack and hold off the jfectively until full mobilization 'gained. i« Mr. Eisenhower's policy for national iccnritf. Having: determined upon It, h« moves easily and logically to thes« othwr propositions: That there can be substantial cuts in defense and foreign aid spending but these must . stop short of checking the development of flexible, well-toned defense muscles. That there can be no real tax cuts until slow, prudently engineered savings bring an end of deficits in sight. The men who want budget cuts and tax slashes at any cost do not like the plan. The President is clearly aligned against them. Whether he prevails, whether his whole security program prevails, may depend finally on the support he is able to draw from the people. They must decide whether he is senselessly overburdening them or whether, with his unique experience in military matters, he is trying scrupulously to strike a sound balance that will bring both reasonable security and a gradual easing of a crushing load. Views of Others Now It's Cheese The greatest difficulty about such a scheme as the farm price support program Is that it Is so difficult to stop, regardless of how unnecessary or how abused it becomes. This is one of the most pressing problems the Elsenhower administration inherited from its predecessor, and one that seems extremely hard to solve. Not only has the Department of Agriculture, during 20 years of Democratic rule, become one of the most bureaucratic and far- reaching of all federal agencies, but the price- control system has grown Into a complicated, economically unsound program that Is unfair to /all the citizens. Reform is essential, yet cannot 'be achieved without a sweeping reorganization such as has been proposed by the new secretary of Agriculture, and by revision of the statutes. The most recent of the many sorry effects of the price-support program has to do with cheddar cheese, which Is being purchased In vast quantities by the Department of Agriculture, which also is buying up such huge amounts of butter that there is no hope of using it properly. Because of the government's generosity, dairy farmers are producing record amounts of milk, »nd processors are converting it into butter and cheese in Increasing amounts, and selling it to the government. The result, of course, is that the retail price of these products In the stores is so high the public Is not buying much of them. And now, to top it all off, the Department of Agriculture has discovered a method by which Cheddar cheese can be produced twice as fast as formerly. The need for that reorganization, and for . restoration of economic sanity In the Department of Agriculture, grows greater every day. —The Lexington Herald. Are They Preachers Or Practicers?- Word comes out of Washington that numerous Congressmen are seeking ways and means to give themselves a raise. The Senate judiciary committee is scheduled to hold hearings on a bill to raise congressional salaries $10,000 a year. Lawmakers now get $15,000 per annum and »re permitted^ special tax deduction up to $3,000 a year for Washington living expenses. They also get mileage to and from home and various other perqulsities. Last fall, a vast majority of those elected pledged that they would fight for economy and budget slashes and that they would oppose inflationary legislation. If they wish to keep that pledge, there's just one thing they can do with the raise idea. Forget it. —Nashville Banner. Killing The Goose Excessive taxation actually can reduce government revenues — by preventing business expansion wlhch would create new sources of taxation.

Rosemary clooney and Guy Mitchell, singing together in the filmusical "Red Garters" with stars on their dressing-room doors, are telling it on themselves and their agents. A few years ago, before their big-time stardom, Columbia Records assigned them- to wax a couple of duets. Guy's agent, Eddie Joy, yelled: "We won't do it. Clooney's name isn't big enough." Rosemary's agent, Joe Scribman, yelled: 'We won't do It. Mitchell's name isn't big enough." But the records were made over their objections and zoomed to the top along with Guy and Rosmary. WASHINGTON —(NBA)— The case for stopping the federal ac- qusition of public landholdings and for turning a maximum amount of the present public domain back of the present public domain back to the state governments and private ownership has perhaps been most Actively promoted by Laurence P. Lee, last year's president of the U. S. Chamber fcler Eilson O f Commerce. During a meeting ot the National Lumber Manufacturers' Associa- ion in Washington lust year, Mr. jee openly accused Richard I. McCardle, chief of the U. S. Forest Service, of heading a monopolistic government bureau pro;ram which brooked restraint from no one. Mr. Lee, a Yale lawyer, makes i s home in Jacksonville, and icads insurance companies in Florda and North Carolina. But he as born in New Mexico and has extensive interests In stock-rais- ng enterprises which graze cattle and sheep on public lands and ire therefore subject to restraints 3f the Taylor Qrazlng Act and ther U. E. convervation laws. Mr. Lee's opposition to these aws and U. S. government land- management policy over the past 0 years goes beyond his personal nterest. however. He declares that reedom of land ownership is a undamental of American liberty, lumun .rights. Tyranny has its roots in land controlled by polit- lans. As the classic example of this, Mr. Lee points to the Communist Russia, where the Soviet Union is he world's largest landlord. The United States, he says, is becom- ing tne second largest landlord, with 24 per cent of its area under federal control, and government land ownership increased from 33 per.cent to 54 per cent in the 11 western states during the last 20 years. Government Pays No Taxes To States Forty different federal agencies are involved in the management of these lands, Mr. Lee charged in his speech to the Lumbermen's Association. Sixteen of these agencies control some timber lands and there is no uniformity in their administration, he said. Mr. Lee spelled out his Ideas further In a recent article for American Forests Magazine. "Do the American people know that the federal government does not pay taxes to the states in which Its holdings are located?" he asked. Answering his own question he admitted (hat, "In some instances, the government pays the states a portion of the gross receipts in lieu of taxes. But—payments are made only when revenues are derived. When no timber is sold or no minerals mined, no payments are made. "With rare exceptions, the states and local governments receive less in the long run under any system of federal ownership than they would receive if the lands were privately held and operated by taxpaying owners." Out of this criticism, Mr. Lee drew up a program of reform which is today the policy of the U. S. Chamber of Commerce, endorsed by the National Association of Manufacturers. It involves these main points: 1—Register all public lands to end present confusion on the extent of federal ownership. 2—Ask Congress to set up federal-state- private ownership commission to establish criteria of ownership. 3— Ask Congress to determine what lands should be offered for private ownership so as to put these lands on the tax rolls. 4—During this period of examination, end all federal land acquisitions. GOP Platform Followed' Lee's Tack The Republican Party platform of 1952 called for a re-examination of federal land policies along the lines Mr. Lee outlined. It further called for legislation to define the rights of grazers and other federal land users, to prevent their exploitation by bureaucratic favoritism. Two principal proposals along this line have been presented to Congress this year. The first was an amendment to the tidelands bill, offered by Sen. George W. Malone (R., Nev.). It called for transferring to the states all mineral rights and control of all grazing rights on federal public lands within their borders. This amendment was defeated in the Senate without a record vote. The second proposal is from Rep. Wesley A. D'Bwart (R., Mont.). It calls for revision of the public and laws "to stabilize the livestock industry dependent upon the federal range." The D'Ewart bill would accomplish this end by giving present holders of grazing privileges, first preference for the continued use of their grazing allotments. It would also give them the right to transfer these privileges to others. While thus giving private citizens practical title to grazing rights, the D'Ewart bill would also guarantee federal land users all water rights for mining, agriculture or manufacture. In effect, It would end government control over these resources. NEXT: Defense of present public lands administration.

Candy's reply: "Please, Daddy, bring me Queen Elizabeth's Carnation dress." the Doctor Says— By EDWIN P. JORDAN. M.D. Written for NEA Service It Is often said that the basis er edge of the feet strengthens the >r good health in later life is laid arches, ankles and legs. Trying to during childhood. With this I agree mphatlcally, and nowhere is it more important than in the care f the feet. The person who hob- jles around in middle age with lat feet, bunions, or other foot i difficulties, can often trace the sources to mistakes in shoeing during the earlier years of life. The two most Important things about the care of the feet are the proper fitting of shoes and suitable exercise so that the muscles and ligaments of the feet will have normal tone and circulation and maintain their arches. The shoes should be neither too large nor too small. This, however, is a difficult and expensive problem when the size of the foot is constantly changing as It is In childhood. "But In spite of this, shoes should not be orn after they have been outgrown and the big toe presses "'into the shoe. It is also usually advised that the growing child should have a shoe with a straight inner margin and a tough toe. Unless there Is already something wrong with the foot, any competent shoe salesman can help the mother to find a properly, fitting shoe. . So far us exercise is concerned, avoid the besetting sin of grownups, namely of standing still In one place too long or sitting for a long time. The fact that children run, juirip and skip so much Is certainly good for the feet. Often special exercises, are Rood for the feet (for grownups as well as children!. Walking In socks or stockings around a rug on UK ut- plck up the edge of a rug, a pencil or marbles with the toes, is also a good exercise. Doing such exercises as these for a few minutes each day may save much trouble. Foot-Health Rules The National Foot Health Council recommends the following foot- health rules: Bathe the feet daily, using a good soap; after the foot bath use powder on the feet and in the shoes and hosiery; wear shoes that nre roomy and have flexible leather at the toes; prevent foot infections: don't walk barefooted on floors or pavements; have your feet examined at least once a year. • JACOBY ON BRIDGE Follow This Rule For Good Defense l)y OSWALD JACOBY Written for NEA Service When you are defending against a no-trump contract'It Is usually wise to keep hammering away at the same suit. This is a sovind play for two reasons: first, H is the' best way to set up your long suit; and second, it may cost you a trick to make the first lead In a new suit.

It was partly a matter of logic, and partly a matter of work- Ing out declarer's probable hold- Ing 'or his jump to three no-trump. West opened the king of hi-arts. and East signalled encouragement by playing theTiine. South properly refused this trick, and West continued with a low heart. When East put up the jack of hearts, South had to refuse again. He could take only eight tricks on the run, and knew that the opponents would surely beat him with the ace of spades and the rest of the hearts if he took the ace of hearts too quickly. After holding the second trick with the jack of hearts, East NORTH 28 4KQJ84 V73 • 954 • + J72 WEST EAST *952 .

If South had less than all of the missing high cards, the only excuse for his jump to three no- trump could abe a solid diamond suit. In a short time, therefore, East managed to visualize the very sort of hand that South actually held.

He could simply take the ace of hearts, run his diamonds, and then lead a spade. East would be able to take the ace of spades, but nothing could then stop South from winning six diamonds, and one trick in each of the other suits. Instead of continuing the hearts, East found the killing defense by returning a club at the third trick. If South went up with the ace of clubs, the opponents would gain the lead with the ace of spades In time to cash the setting trick in clubs. If South played his ten of clubs. West could win with the king of clubs and return the suit. Either way. South could take his eight tricks but no more.
