No Time to Relax It should b« carefully observed that while the present Kremlin rulers are busy reviling Josef Stalin »nd »11 his Horks, they still are dedicating themselves wholly to Leninism aa the basic Russian Communist faith. This is the key fact underlying the behavior of Soviet leaders today. For, in the view of experts who know Russians well, there is no fundamental difference in purpose between Stalinism and Leninism, Stalinism was crude, brutal in the extreme, blunt and unsublle. But the record shows plainly that Leninism has been no less ruthless and cruel, though not so obvious in the applications of tyranny. And with both forms of totalitarianism the great and unchanging goal has been world conquest. In other words, the objectives of the Soviet regime have been basically the same from the moment the Communists came to power until now. Only, in some periods the ugly face has appeared undisguised, and at others it has been deceptively masked. Currently we are in one of the latter periods, with Russian chieftans striving hard to put an attractive countenance on their single-minded efforts to seize the globe. Unhappily, at such times they always ?eem able to count upon the guill- ible assistance of many intellectuals in Europe and elsewhere. No matter how often the mask is torn away, once the Kremlin has put it back in place these groups show a puzzling readiness to accept it as the true face of Soviet communism. Unluckily, too, many others in the free world, given a freshly prettified and perfumed image of communism, show a disheartening tendency to push the ugly reality into the back of their minds. Thus falsely reassured, they seize the cheerful interlude to relax and let down their guard. It is at these very moments when the Communist menace is perhaps most remote to many millions, that it is in fact most dangerous. Today, while the Kremlin smiles, sends out good will emissaries, and tries to disavow Stalin as an ogre, Soviet communism is pressing hard its already great advantages in the Far East, is fomenting trouble in the explosive Middle East, and is endeavoring to win Europe by economic devices and the quiet warfare of "political cooperation." No one should be fooled. The Soviet Union is having altogether too much success with its newest and in some ways boldest masquerade. We have little to cheer about as we survey the state of our free world friends. We have no reason whatsoever to let down our guard. Aid on an effective scale still must push ahead in the forefront of military science, knowing that our safety and the free world's depend largely upon our having at all times a command of force so superior that the Comunists dare not even translate their drive for conquest into annihilating war. Actively Inactive From the start Governor Harrirnan of New York has styled himself an "inactive candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination. That is a convenient cover for any man who wants to keep himself available, in the public eye, yet considers it imprudent to enter the primary lists against the avowed candidates. But, of course, there are degrees of inactivity. And as one or the other of the declared participants stumbles on the long path to Chicago, the definition of inactivity can change. In Harriman's case, it has already changed more than once. The latest switch came in his signing of the GOP-sponsored state income tax cut. Harriman was on record as rating the measure a bad bill. But after much hesitancy he signed it. No one had much doubt that the action related more to events outside New York than to those within. VIEWS OF OTHERS Beware The Hobbyist! A speaker at the annual meeting of the American Public Health Association warned that homes were becoming aa dangerous as highways. The reason isn't excessive drinking or too much speed or one-armed driving. It's simply the form of intoxication known as "do-it-yourself." The accidents range all the way from fingernails tacks, through home-made schelves that collapse on guests, to the uncomfortable and often serious results of inhaling poisonous chemicals. Such accidents rarely occur In factories, said the speaker, because there ts an expert foreman on hand to see that the tool* and the toxic materials are used correctly. But, in the absence of such supervision, the home novice bunbles ahead, after having read only the first sentence of the direction!, and discovers his mistakes oILen only after L trip to the hospital. Psychologically the do-it-your&elf craze Is supposed to be a re-awakening of the pioneer spirit, an urge toward self-sufficiency in the age of mechanical dependence which negates such a staU. We suspect that the home projector with a wound to show will simply feel that much more the daring adventurer and bumble ahead to the next task as soon as he can navigate,—Green Bay i Wisj Prt-ib-Gazette.

Hal Boyle's Column Macaroni Has Played Important Part in Life of Pretty New Star By HAL BOYLE NE WYORK Wf—To get ahead in the entertainment world, says Carroll Baker, "you have to be willing to turn down jobs—and eat macaroni. "Half the problem in building a career is picking worthwhile roles," It was her willingness to sub- cist on macaroni until the right part came along that has made Carroll Baker a star at 22. After only two films, she is already in the $50,000 to $75,000 a picture class, Chances are you never even heard of Carroll Baker, a slender, child-faced beauty who wears no makeup and looka a» J/ .she'd Just stepped off a Victorian valentine. But the chances are you won't b« able to avoid hearing a lot about her before the year is out. In the theater belt she It being readied for Cinderella girl bulld-| up as director Ella Kazan's "la-i lest discovery." To be discovered! by Kazan is better than having a rich old uncle in Australia—it's the stepping stone to quick money in the bank. Among the other young stars Kazan helped rocket to a morning fame are Marlon Brando, Julie Harris, Eva Marie Saint, and the late Jim Dean. Miss Baker had played only a relatively minor part In one film, the dramatization of Edna Ferber's "Giant," when Kazan had her try out for "Baby Doll." After one reading, he awarded her the title role. "Baby DolJ," written by Tennessee Williams, Is a sex-haunted Southern tale in which a child bride comes to emoUonnl maturity in iin atmosphere of middle- aged arson and young |rac«. The success of the 1 ^-million- dollar production is almost sure to depend on how well the public likes Carroll's performance as the bewildered, thumb-sucking young bride. But Kazan .was so taken with her acting, he Jmmedi;itcly signed her for another film—an unusual step for him. And Warner Bros put her under contract for four more to be made in the next six years. That's as many as Miss Blake, who has a clear and .stubborn head on- hor younjf shoulders, wants to be bound to. "It isn't the number of productions you're tn that counts," she said.

Peter Idson's Washington Column — Biggest Portion of Eisenhower's legislative List Still Untouched WAETINGTON —(NEA)—There are over 30 major legislative recommendations to Congress on which President Elsenhower would like to have some action before tho lawmakers go home. It is made clear at the White House that the President isn't insisting on rubber stamp passage of these measures. He'll take any reasonable compromises.But he docs want a record of accomplishments to lay before the voters in November. Exteneind the foreign aldpro- gram is considered his most important recommendation tn international affairs. The President is known to consider this the cheapest form of national security. Approval of the new Organization for Trade Cooperation, OTC. to administer tariff agreements is also high on any "must" list. Renewal of international wheat sugar agreements, amendment 01 the Immigration law are likewise considered important. In the field of national defense, number one item fs extension of the Defense Production Act, expiring June 30. Along with this are several measures to improve the br-;ieiits for members of the armed forces nnd their dependents. The Presl- 75 Years Ago In Biytheyillc Mrs. Kendall Berry waa elected president of the Central Parent- Teacher Association Wednesday afternoon when 65 members were present. Mrs. H. H. Houchins tn able to dent asked for these in Jaunary, 1955. Welfare programs which the administration would like to have Congress approve this year include extended hospital survey and construction, medics! training and reseai^h and school aid bills. The new farm bill with its soil bank plan is probably the year's most wanted piece of domestic legislation. Four urgent measures are listed in the field of general commerce. They are the federal highway program, the 400-miHion-dol- lar postal rate increase, authorization for 35,000 more public housing units and 1 a new federal flood and disaster insurance bill. In general government affairs, the administration wants authority to pay its higher officials like assistant secretaries more than the S 15,000 a year now allowed. Incorporation of the government's civilian and military personnel into the social security, old age ar.d survivors' insurance system Is a!so greatly desired. Finally, the President would like to get action on his most recent recommendation to create a new federal commission and a new : division in the Department of Jus-i tice to handle controversial civil j Erskine Johnson IN HOLLYWOOD Bv ERSKINE JOHNSON NEA Suff Correspondent HOLLYWOOD —<N£A>— Holly- of steering, in -New York and cxx. on TV: There's a good deal even in Hollywood, about, the fale o! 2,000 major s'.udio movies headed for television. The public, it's said, may yawn and dial out the changing times, tastes, dress and the sight of big stars suddenly grown 15 to 20 years younger, in HoHvTA-ood's best movies of the 30*5 and most of the 4Q's. I doubt it. If Hollywood's old B movies can build up big audiences, the old Ko'Jywcod classics due on TV this fall and winier will make an even bigger impact on home viewing habits. Changing times, tastes and dress can be fascinating and youthful Cagneys. Flynos and Crawfords cavorting on the screen will be a big lure to all TVie-srers past 35.

Arguments over whether this is a Do-Northing or Do-Little session of Congress, or whether it has done much depend on whose list of accomplishments you use. If you take the Congressional Record tabulation of 426 measures passed by the Senate and 303 passed by the House in the first 50 days in session, that's six to eight a day. But the measures on which both houses have completed action and the President has signed into law- number only 59 public bills and 67 private bills of little imporatnce. The real score on Congressional performance has to be chalked up against the 190 major legislative recommendations Which the President has made to Congress this session. A tabulation looks like this: Classification; presidential proposals; must list; passed into law. National Security and Vets: 17; 4; 1. International Afrairs: 21; 5;1. Public Welfare and Labor: 39; 4; 1. ; Agricultural Resources: 25; 6; 3. j Natural Resources: 14; 4; 2. | Commerce and Housing: 46; 6: 1. General Government: 21; 5; 2. Federal Personnel: 7; 2; 0.

Nanette Fabray may wind up at CBS with her own show after leaving Sid Caesar. the Doctor Says Written for NEA Service. By EDWIN ? JORDAN, M.D. By EDWIN P. JORDAN, M.D. In a rather long letter Mrs. D. tells about her son who had a tapeworm at the age of 13. At that time the doctor said that in throat infection for a week. When Mrs. Russell Phillips en-j tertained members of the Thursday Luncheon club for a party at her home yesterday, she had, as guests be out ^after ^ having beenjll of » | spite ot treatment the worm was ^ expelled. Now at the age of 27 she thinks he may have the worm again. Although, of course, I cannot tellj exact frequency but suspect that tapeworm injections, at least in the United States and Canada, are much less frequent than pinworms. As a matter of interest, it might be mentioned that the beef tapeworm, for example, often measures 12 to 15 feet or more in length i and that cure cannot be expected ! unless the head is expelled.
