All Can Contribute To Alcoholism Fight Alcoholism ... a disease with no known medical cure. Yet it is being "cured" every day, But only by those sufferers from it who truly want to be cured. By simple determination to improve their lot, the victims of this disease have accomplished what zealous reformers have failed to do and solved a mystery which still baffles science. Through their own organization, Alcoholics Anonymous, these persons have frankly diagnosed their own malady and Successfully followed the ageless axiom! "Physician, heal thyself.'" Alcoholics know they can never become what is commonly called a "social drinker." The one drink too many is the first drink. They have traced the steps to becoming an alcoholic and further charted a course to the only successful cure: total abstinence. At the same time, they recognize that the average person can indulge without undue harm and without danger of becoming a slave to alcohol. AA members are not reformers; they eschew the dangerous path of zealots whose determination to inflict their will upon others befogs whatever noble purposes may lie in their methods. It is axiomatic with AA members that only an alcoholic who really wants to return to sobriety can make the grade. To this end, they band together to aid one another in what is always a tedious, painful climb from the depths. They have helped themselves, and by doing so have helped others. In the end, they help us all. Alcoholism is a social and economic problem as well as a personal one. Alcoholism is the cause ' of much absenteeism among workers. It, reduces their efficiency and brings the added expense of lost production. Alcoholism helps keep the jails filled, the county farms occupied, the relief rolls jammed, the divorce courts in session and the child welfare workers busy. In general, it is a subject of interest to all of us. It affects us either directly or indirectly whether or.not we touch a drop ourselves. When an alcoholic becomes an AA member and begins the long climb back, he has many obstacles to overcome. He must not only regain his own self respect, he must recapture the respect and trust of others. Only an alcoholic's own determination can rid him of his af- flication, but in the work of rehabilitating himself there are times when he could use a helping hand. Businessmen and civic leaders of this and other cities should bear this in mind, for they can be of help. This aspect of the AA's work was discussed at the group's state convention last week. AA is doing a good job of reconverting alcoholics into useful citizens and workers. Businessmen and civic leaders should consider what they can do to aid this rehabilitation work — to the advantage of both themselves and the man who has found his way back to sobriety. Views of Others Tip Gov. Theodore Roosevelt McKeldln, of Maryland, says he was the first man who knew for certain that Gen. Eisenhower would become a candidate for President. McKeldin said he was returning from a trip to Israel early In 1952 when he stopped in Paris and called Eisenhower on the telephone. The President then was Commander of supreme Headquarters, Allied Powers in Europe. "I'm Governor McKeldin of Maryland, and I got 24 votes," McKeldin said he told Eisenhower. "Well." said McKeldin, "Ike says to me, 'You stay where you are and I'll come over.'" The Governor paused and grinned, then added: "Right then and there I knew Ike was a candidate or otherwise I'd have had to go to him." To a discerning man that was all the proof that was needed. When Eisenhower, said he would be "right over" he revealed he wanted something McKeldin had; otherwise, he wouldn't have gone, or as McKeldin said would have made the Maryland Governor come to him. That is true all through life — in politics, in business, in our social relations. The man who has what the other fellow wants and must have to succeed can sit still. The other fellow will come to him. — Elizabethtown (Ky.) News. Old-Time Family Physician We think of psychiatry as the newest of the modern physician's tools. But one of the leading psychiatrists of the country. Dr. William Menninger, director of the Mcnninger Clinic in Topeka, says that the old-fashioned family doctor prac- tised psychiatry, whether he knew It or not. The family doctor took more time to listen to his patient's story, made frequent home visits, became familiar with his environment, and thus learned the real causes of complaints which today baffle diagnosis of doctors In highly professional- ized offices and impersonal wards and hospitals. Dr. Mennlnger asked what is the diagnosis in a patient who has coronary symptoms because he takes his wife to a party; in a woman who has migraine on the weekend her son is home from college; or what kind or arthritis becomes activated with each quarterly meeting of the board of directors? He urged the necessity of making three diagnosis, physical, psychological and social, giving the time, patience and sympathetic understanding of the old-fashioned family physician, to get to the bottom of human ills. —Tallahassee (Fla.)

Southern Democrat.? might wish that this were the leader of their own patty making this statement. They con applaud it coming from Eisenhower, however, just as many Republicans applauded Roosevelt in the early days of the New Deal. —Lumberton (N.C.) Eobesonian. 10 THEY SAY A child should be recognized as "an organism— a living, reacting, sensible being." — Albert Raubcnheimer, vice president, University of southern California. * * + My idea of a real homecoming Is to walk down the street and see my friends. — Newsman Bill Oalis, released from Czech prison. * * * I am quite sure that when — as we all hope — these immediate negotiations for an armistice (in Korea) are concluded, further settlement should not be left exclusively in America's hands. — Ex- British Prime Minister Clement Attlee. * * * Unity (among non-Communist nations in Europe i means peace.

But Mr. Talbott said there nan on one of the uneasiest Beats Washington these days is Harold Talbott, Secretary of the Air Force. The reason for his discomfort is that the Air Force next been Telcr Edson clministraUon budget for year has cut by over $5 billion.

He been described as bmg a cod bit lik the farmer found ins at the side of the road, urlying a piece of rope in his nds. When a passerby stopped ask why the farmer appeared to be so bewilldercd the answered: "I can't make up my mind whether I've lost my mule, or found a piece of rope.'" Bigger airpower advocates In Washington are urging and hoping that the secretary will speak out for getting back his lost mules. But if he does, he may hang himself with his own rope. Secretary Talbott 'is a good Republican and a good friend of Ike's—dating back before the Chicago convention. In fact, Mr. Talbott is one of the select coterie invited to the White House ior evenings of bridge. "To belong" in Washington these days, a big shot must either golf or bridge with the President, Washington job shortly after the Harold Talbott was tapped for a election. President Eisenhower considered h i m for .several was only one that interested him. That was to be Secretary of the Air Force. Airplane Company President at 28 He had been in aviation since World War I, when he was president, at 28, of the Dayton Wright Airplane Co. It held contracts for building some S300 million worth of planes. Mr. Talbott got to be a major in the Signal Corps, which ran the flying service then. In World War IJ he was for a time director of aircraft production. After naming him Secretary of j the Air Force, President Eisen! hower told Mr. Talbott that the way to learn his job was not to sit at a Pentagon desk, but to get out and see its installations. Consequently, Secretary Talbott I has flown some 45.000 miles in the first four months he has been In office. He has covered the main European bases and nearly all those in the Pacific. He still hasn't been to Thule, in Greenland, nor to the Moroccan bases, but they're on the list. Weekends, the Secretary has discovered, are the perfect times to inspect aircraft, factories in the U. S. With the plants shut down and no workmen around, he can move with greater freedom along an assembly line. He can stop to inspect the jigs, fixtures and dies, and get a better idea of what the plant needs, with the least disturbance to production. With all this inspecting, Secretary Talbott hasn't spent too much time in Washington. While he's away, the department is run by Air Force Undersecretary James H. Douglas, Jr. A Chicago lawyer, he was chief of * staff for Air- Transport Command in World War II. Mr. Douglas got this job when Robert Sprague, New England manufacturer, refused to sell his . stocks. Secretary Talbott was one of those who was forced to sell, to win Senate approval for his confirmation. The holdings he disposed of, for a reported $700,000, included Chrysler,, Electric Auto- Lite, Owens-Corning Fiberglass. Federal and state taxes took. around $200,000. It was considerable of a personal sacrifice for even a otp government job. But Secretary Talbott has been on the fringes of politics since the 1930's. He is a close friend of New York Gov. Thomas E. Dewey, and was chairman of his finance committee for the 1948 campaign. He was born in Dayton, O., was Erskine Johnson IN HOLLYWOOD HOLLYWOOD —(NBA)— Holly- | light-comedy TV plans. . .The wood's first movies-vs.-television, i movies are bidding for Ben Blue domestic-squabble rumors are out again, rediscovered by TV after of focus.

He was coming back from Japan, when his plane landed on a remote Aleutian base at some ungodly hour in the morning. The lieutenant-colonel in command was on hand to greet the secretary, however, and showed him around. Asked if there were any complaints, the young officer said he had only one. He missed his wife. It turned out she was in New York, and since Secretary Talbott was going there, he offered to call her up and deliver greetings. The officer gave the number and when the secretary got home, he dialed it, and asked for the woman by lame. "This is Harold Talbott, Secre- when West played low. A diamond finesse lost to West, and West returned a diamond to make sure of a safe exit. Since the diamond finesse had lost, South could be sure of only three diamonds, together with five top tricks in the other suite. Since his best chance was to establish a second spade trick, he led a low spade, hoping that West would have to win the trick. As it turned out. West did have to win the third round of spades with the king. Now dummy's last spade was established for declarer's ninth trick, and East could not gain the lead to run the rest of his hearts. South played this difficult hand extremely well, but West could have defeated the contract.

JORDAN, M.D. Written for NEA Service , .The fear of polio often becomes so great that parents often mis- j takeniy feel that any illness in a child is likely to be th;u dread disease Although they are usually [wrong, one should be alert lo t.he danger and should not ignore any suspicious symptoms. | Tlie first symptoms of polio may be like those of other infections. j Consequently it is doubly necessary to make sure that polio is not the cause. The beginning signs of polio are likely to last for a few hours or for three or lour days. A low fever is common. The victim may complain of feeling dizzy, slight muscular twitchings are common and the child may seem unusually irritable. A slight stiffness of the neck is particularly significant. However, parents should bp careful not to call too much attention to the. possibility of siiflness of the neck because !«iis misht muse a suggestible child to complain of something which is not really there. As time goes on. stiffness bc- comes worse in the neck nnrl In the bar.k. The skin is likelv to be sore and tender. The muscle weakness or paralysis usually does, not show up for several days. Most of these first symptom mny be prcent in an ordinary cold or some other minor illness. At limes when polio is common, however, they should be considered seriously and the attendance of A physician should be obtained and Ihr- progress carefully walched. Even the physician, however, may have difficulty in making a diagnosis at first. Until a few days have passed it may be hard to tell polio from less serious conditions. Also some persons show the early symptoms of polio without ever developing paralysis. Probably some of these are caused by the same tiny virus which produces polio, but which just does not attack the nervous system and cause paralysis. There are good reasons for believing that many people become infected with the polio virus and never know it. Probably this is the reason so many of us seem to have built up a resistance.
