What Did Illinois Prove? Th« Illinois presidential primary might best be described as a kind of holding operation for all the major candidates involved. It was most crucial for Adlai Steven- ion because it was his home state. A poor showing there would have sent him plunging. As a minimum for staying in the race, he had to have a respectable score in Illinois. He got it. The 700,000-odd votes he hung up compared almost exactly with the 700,000-plus he recorded in Illinois in 1952 as Democratic candidate for a second term as governor. He bested by nearly 200,000 the total amassed four years ago by Senator Kefauver, then the only Democratic ballot entry, as Stevenson was this time. As for Kefauver, he failed to pull a write-in vote big enough to embarrass Stevenson on his home grounds. Hig 30,000 total was less than 5 per cent of the former governor's vote. In the view of most, he would have had to run up at least 75,000 to do even slight damage. But since Kefauver made no Illinois appearances and his write-in campaign was a relatively subdued affair, he didn't suffer much, either. At the worst, his momentum from the New Hampshire, Minnesota and Wisconsin primaries was slowed. The Illinois event demonstrated once again how potent organization politics are in that stale. Stevenson piled up nearly half a million votes in machine- dominated Cook County, some 220,000 more than President Eisenhower drew there on the Republican ticket. The President passed the 7-10,000 mark in his statewide total and wound up roughly -10,000 ahead of Stevenson. Obviously his advantage was gained in traditionally Republican downstate, wh«r« he outran the Democratic prospect by more than a quarter million. Yet here it must be noted that it would be most unwise to attach undue significance to comparisons between Mr. Eisenhower and Stevenson. They were not running against each other. Furthermore, the total Illinois vote was a weak 1,500,000. That means 800,000 people who voted in the 1952 primary didn't turn out this time, and a whopping 3,000,000 of the 4,500,000 who voted in the 1952 Illinois fall election failed to show. When the vote is light, it is foolish to seek significance. About the only safe deductions are largely negative ones. Mr. Eisenhower's downstate triumph suggests farm rebellion there is not now of serious moment. Angry men act. And under Illinois law any Republican farmers who had passed the 1955 primaries (affecting mostly local affairs) could have switched this time to the Democratic column. Yet the results indicate most either supported Ike or stayed home. No one knows, of course, how the stay-at-homes will vote next fall. On the Democratic side, as we have seen, the Illinois primary gave Stevenson the home state ballast he absolutely had to have, but didn't push him ahead. At the same time, it did nothing to advance the Kefauver fortunes. It was not what you might call a decisive day at the polls. Fedayeen Fanaticism It is as old as the hills that fighting breeds brutality. Still it is always a shock when we see stark examples. The killing of three Israeli children at prayer can hardly have done anything to advance the Arab cause before world opinion. This tragedy is a shocking demonstration of what can happen when fanatical nationalism is allowed to go unchecked. Especially ironic is the fact that this incident occurred almost at the same time Egypt announced, in a conciliatory move, that it was calling off the commando-style raids against Israel. Controlling men you have told to do their worst is not so easy. One wonders what Egyptian leaders think today of this senseless slaughter of the young. /IEWS OF OTHERS Official Scrap Book Officials of the State of Washington profess to be puzzled by a request from a Providence, R. I., schoolboy which reads as follows: "Would you be kind enough to send me an official with the governor's name on It so I can put it In my scrap book. Thank you kindly." Now this request should be very easy to fill. As a result of the time-honored political patronage system, officials with the governor's •tamp on them are a dime a dozen in almost any state. The State of Washington should be able to spare at least one of these in the Interest of education. It need only pick one whose thinness of ib.llby would be perfect for pasting in a scrap xiok.—Florida TIrnes-Unfon. 0 THEY SAY If I had not got it (Oscar) I would have been awfully hurt and disappointed.

Ho/ Boyle's Column Like an Athlete, TV- idiots Simply Must Apply Few Rules of Training By HAL bOYLE NEW YORK W—Are you getting the most out of your television viewing?

For Time Being, Peace Is Most Profitable Course for Russians By YJAMES MARLOW AP Newi Analyst WASHINGTON, April 19 un There are good reasons for the Russians to step Into the Middle East crisis as peacemakers and to agree to go along with a world agency to develop atomic 'energy for peace. They have deliberately presented themselves in a new and friendly role, and they must seem to live up to It by deeds if they want to be believed. They can only get what they want if they are believed In a world long suspicious of them. What they want—and Communist party boss Khrushchev has said so—is world communism. That hasn't changed. Their tactics have. Khrushchev said they should try to take over peacefully where they can and by force only where they have to. To sound convincing they had to ttike a first, drastic step, This meant disowning Stalin, who had come to personify communism as violence, murder nnd revolution. Stnlln, set In his ways, relied or, force alone. In his lifetime communism never advanced an inch without force. But reliance on force alone has become in creasingly dangerous for the Soviet Union. Since the United States and Russia both have atomic weapons neither can attempt force without the risk of destruction itself. With something besides force now necessary, Bussfas new peaceful line emerged. Winning peacefully takes time The Russians seem willing to take it. They have a lot of time. They have made tremendous progress in science and production. They will make far more if they stay out of war. They are the Middle East's next- door neighbor. They can't take it by force Knout facing war with the United States. And at the moment they are not in a position to take it from within, either peacefully or by revolution. In every Arab country of the Middle East, including Egypt to whom Russia recently sent arms through Czechoslovakia, the Com- party is Illegal. There are Communist undergrounds. If there were upheavals in the Middle East tomorrow—according to information here—the Communists in the area are not strong enough to take over. So it will take time, and plenty of^vidence of good will from Russia, before the Communists in the Middle East get legal recognition as a political party and thereofre have a chance to move into the governments. Meanwhile, Britain would almost certainly move into the area with force if fighting Between Arabs and Israelis threatened to shut off Britains Middle Eastern oil supplies. France and the United States would probably back her up. Once in, it would be likely they'd retain control of the area for some time to maintain peace. Russia couldn't oust them except by going to war. Why should she chance that? She can hope to dominate the means since the British and French are widely hated there. As tor Ihe Russian agreement to join the atoms-for-peace agency: the Soviets would have let the United States walk off with the lead in this field if they didn't join. Under the pushing of President Eisenhower th I s international agency would have gone on making friends for the West without Russia, Joan Fontaine and Olivia d Havilland are the feuding sister again.

Mr. and Mrs. Public picked "Mr. Roberts" -as the b«st film of the year and voted for Jame r :an and Jennifer Jones for bes performances. The winning sup porting players were Peggy Lee and Tab Hunter. Nothing too unusual, though, because fan magazine polls for the year's best usually differ from the Oscar winners. Teen-agers ftp parently dominated voting in the Audience Awards poll, too.
