Another Clever Trick No doubt the Soviet Union hoped to grab a little propaganda glory from its announced decision to 'disband the Corn- inform. Timing the move on the eve of the Bulganin-KhruShchev visit to Britain probably was no accident. At first glance the action looks pretty much like a restatement of the obvious. Yet underneath it is more. The Cbminform was set up by Josef Stalin in 1947 as a kind of information clearing house for the Red satellites then bucking the Marshall Plan. It was a limited substitute for the old Comintern, agency of international communism, which the Reds scuttled in World War II as a gesture toward their Western allies. But by their own present admission, the Russians have not found the Cominform of much recent use. Events have outdated it. Everyone is aware it has not been active, so on the surface the announcement sounds like a report that the Kremlin has decided to bury its dead. It is not quite that. The Cominform, active or otherswise, was a symbol of warfare between East and West. Such trappings the Kremlin wants shoved in the closet today. For this is the era of "cooperation." Again by their own testimony, the Russians see the disbanded organization as a handicap in a time when they are preaching "popular front" as they did in the late 1930's. Their game now is to weasel their way into operating governments by collaborating, where they can, with other less radical leftist elements. The true significance of the official interment of the Cominform is that it is just one more act in the elaborate, slickly conceived "cover plan" for the Kremlin's presentday operations. Those operations involve a tremendous effort to win the world by economic and political warfare, abetted by psychological devices. The goal, clearly, is the same as when the Soviet leaders were pressing their friends and puppet* to «mp!oy guns. Only the weapon* and th« tactics are different. To pursue today's tactics the Kremlin needs no Cominform or even a Com- intern. The means of communication and collaboration between the world's Communist parties have long since been refined to a point where formal structures standing high above the surface are sup- -• erfluous. When Moscow eliminates an agency like the Cominform, it is simply chopping off the top of the iceberg. The great bulk of it always did lie beneath the water. Only fools would imagine that because less and less of it is visible the menace is smaller. Obviously the reverse is true —the peril is vastly heightened. Meet the Champ In recent weeks Adlai Stevenson, troubled by his poor Minnesota showing, has embraced the handshaking routine that seems to work so well for his rival, Sen. Estes Kefauver. But an event in Florida raises a question whether Adlai can ever outdo the old master at this game. Kefauver's two-car caravan, barrell- ing along 80 miles an hour outside Tampa, was halted by a traffic officer. It was six a. m. and the senator, his suit rumpled and a cellophane-wrapped cigar clamped in his teeth, was dozing. At the officer's approach, Kefauver unwound himself and piled out. Almost automatically, he stuck out his big hand, greeted the angry policeman warmly, and asked for his vote in the Florida primary. We don't know if he won over the calmed officer or not, but surely the senator gets "A" for effort under adverse conditions. VIEWS OF OTHERS Mostly Over the decades, management and labor have mad£ long strides toward better relations in their joint task of an industrial production that amazes the outside world, In mastering industrial disputes, with their strikes or lockouts, management and labor seem as backward, as helpless maybe, as they were 75 years ago when strikers and armed factory guards ' times engaged in pitched battles. Such unhappy reflections arise in looking over the figures of estimated economic casualties in the prolonged Westinghouse strike. At last count, the workers had lost around 80 million dollars in wages. The company had lost nobody could guess how many millions of inconift Merchants selling Westinghouse products counted losses in the millions. Industries supplementing Westinghouse processes of manufacture had used plenty of red ink. Freedom of contract should be here to stay, of course. There Is the right to strike and the right to resist a strike. But Is it beyond the wit of enterprising and resourceful labor and management to find a better way to settle disputes that always, somehow are settle anyway?—Ashevllle (N.C.) Citizen. 0 THEY SAY Before going (o sleep say to yourself: I haven't reached my goal yet, whatever it is, and I'm going to be uncomfortable and in a degree unhappy until I do. — Poet Carl Sandburg. We could have done it (driven Chinese Reds to the Yalu in Korean war), if our government had been willing to pay the price In dead and wounded that action would have cost. From the purely military standpoint the effort, to my mind, would not have been worth the cost. — Gen. Matthew Ridgway, U. S. Army commander in Korean war. The (palace) servants had so much gold braid you couldn't tell them from the generals. — John B, Kelly, Sr., father of the bride. They (GI's in England) are mostly young men who find themselves in an alien land for the . first time in their lives and with more money than they have been used to handle and an erroneous estimate of Iheir capacity for English liquor. — C. R.. Fox, constable in Oxford, England. Hal Boyle's Column Keys are King of the Household To Security Conscious Germans By HERB ALTSCHULL For Hal Boyle FRANKFURT, Germany Wl— Don't let anybody tell you that In Germany, beer is king. The real sovereign of the federal republic is the lowly key. Keys are everywhere. You can't get into a mouse hole without one. The German housewife wouldn't know where to begin her day with- them, sometimes a score or more, out her pack of keys. She carries at least a dozen of rirst there's the key to the front door. Sometimes there n?e more than one—for instance, the keys to the bolU. Then, V ate Vvw ID HI »4>*rt- ment, there is a key to the apartment door. In each door of the house, whether it be a twu-room flat or a 20-room mansion, there is the familiar key. Many Germans still lock themselves into their bedrooms at night. But this is only the beginning of the key cycle. There are keys to the back door, too; to the basement, to the attic, to the china closet, the desk, even to the fuse box. Strange «s 11 may seem, Germans even lock up their refrigerators at night. Beer, of course, Is a German too. HM ntaittir of foods announced this month that 10 million gallons of beer were consumed in ths federal republic in 1955. This averages out, the ministry said, to 20 gallons per person, "including women, children, old people and refugees." And they all use keys, an Indeterminate number, since there is not yet a federal ministry of keys to keep score. If anybody happens to lock the key inside a room or a refrigerator, hjC'H send out a call for the "schlosser," or keymaker, a busy fellow In this country. Ko Meet th« Press NEA Service, Inc Peter Cdson's Wathington Column — Reds'. New Policies 'May Mean That 'Eggheads' Are Emerging By PETER EDSON WASHINGTON — (NEA) — One tnterpretatlln gaining credence in Washington on what has been happening lately behind, the Iron Cur- ASHINGTON — (NEA) — One interpretation gaining credence in ushington on what has been happening lately behind .the Irorl Curtain might be entitled, "The Triumph of the Eggheads." This Is np reflection on the- baldness of Communist party boss Nikita Khrushchev, The term* "egghead" is used in its American political slang definition of an intellectual. Si .1ents of modern Russian history maintain that the late Premier J. V. Stalin just couldn't tolerate the egghead theoreticians of international communism. He was said to be at raid of them and mistrust them. He liquidated those he could. The price of nonconformity to his own views was a bullet in the head. Those who escaped did so only by submerging their own ideas and yessing the dictator on everything. The prime example of this is offered by the case of Marshal Tito of Yugoslavia. He is probably the number one egghead of modern international communism. Tito refused to take dictation from Moscow. He remained a Communist. But the brand of communism he promoted was his own idea of what he considered best for Yugoslavia — and he col- laborated wiffc the West. For this he was kicked out of the Com- minform and relations with Moscow were broken. When new Soviet leaaers Khrushchev and Bulganin went to Belgrade and made peace with Tito, it was the first triumph of an egghead over Stalinism. Since the Communist party's 20th Congress in Moscow at the end of February, the new collective leadership has been trying to "de- Stalinlze" not only Soviet Russia but all the Communist satellite governments as well. The murder of 70 out of 133 members of the Russian Communist party's Central Committee, on Stalin's order, has been repudiated. The purge of Marshal Tukachevsky and hundreds of Red Army leaders In 1937 has been denounced. By liquidating these military eggheads, it was charged that Stalin had left Russia unprepared for Hitler's 1941 attack. Other potential big brains of this era who showed signs of independent leadership to rival Stalin are now being rehabilitated. The memory of Bukharin, Rykov, Marshal Bluecher and half a dozen others is now to be revered. The "same thing goes on in the Russian satellites. Former Foreign Minister Laszlo Rajk of Hungary has now been cleared of the false charges which sent him to the gallows in 1949. i Poland's former Foreign Minis-i ter Vladyslaw Gomulka, found guilty of Titoism in 1949, has been freed irom jail. Bulgarian Premier Vulko Chervenko has been fired. Seven former Bulgarian leaders charged with a Titolst plot to overthrow the Red regime in Sofia have been let out of jaii. And so it goes. There are two current theories in' Washington— where It is admitted nobody knows the real answers — on why all this is happening. One Is that the old Bolshevik leaders — Bulganin, Khrushchev and Mikoyan — did this on their own responsibility. They wanted to make sure there would not b another Stalin era of murders am intrigue. The other theory is that thi Russian industrial revolution o the past 39 years has developed a new class of highly skilled ani intelligent factory managers, technicians and scientists. They are said to constitute a new "hour geois" Within classless Russia They are the new intelligensia— the new eggheads. If you please It is believed that they exer a considerable Internal pressure on the Russian government. The> are no longer willing to take al the bunk that Stalin handed out The one ray of hope in the sit; uation is seen in the possibility that the new eggheads will de mand more and more freedom and In time get rid of the collective dictatorship or whatever it is tha governs Russia now. 75 Years Ago In BlytheYtllc J. H. Cram, trustee and general manager of the Lee Wilson Company and chairman of the Arkansas State Highway Commission, has bought the 2500 acre plantation of James J. Hughes near Forrest City. The following Blytheville people are attending the Arkansas Utilities convention in Hot Springs today and tomorrow: Robert Reeder, E. B. Mason, Charles Ray Newcomb, Mr. and Mrs. James Hill Miss Mae Lane, Miss Jane McAdams, Miss Sara Evrard, Carl Ganske and Harman Taylor. Among the Blytheville people in Memphis for the Cotton Shippers convention are Mr. and Mrs. Louis Applebaum, . John McDowell. Mr. and Mrs. Tom F. Martin, Mr. and Mrs. Renkert Wetenkamp, Mr. and Mrs. Farris McCalla and B. G. West. torist would ever leave his car unlocked, even for a quick dash into the grocery store. The quaint American habit of leaving motor running and the keys in the car shocks German sensitivity. Not long ago an American businessman in Frankfurt bought a house and went on a ispectlo tour with his landlord. The living room was locked and no key was evident. "It's in the basement," said the landlord. "Let's go get it." But the basement was locked, too. The call went out for the "schlosser." Sociologists have an explanation for the German key consciousness. They explain that the German people are more security conscious than any other people in the world. This is so, they say, because Germany has for centuries been surrounded by hostile, or potentially hostile, forces, the Aus- Lrians to the south, the French to Ihe west, the Swedes to the north and the Russians to the cast, Therefore, according to the explanation, Germans tend to pro- .ect what they have — even down to the sausages in the re- rigerakx. , the Doctor Says - Written for NEA Service By EDWIN P. JORDAN, M. D. By EDWIN P. JORDAN, M.D. Written for NEA Service More people are traveling by automobile, by air and by water than ever before. Heoce more o: us are exposed to the possibilities of motion sickness—seasickness or air sickness. So the question of prevention of this unpleasant condition is a matter of widespread concern. I do not know of anyone ever dying from motion sickness nor even being permanently disablec by it. Indeed, the person who is not affected in this manner may be somewhat amused by the one who is. However, it is surely not amusing in the slightest to the person who Is incapacitated by the Illness. The symptoms are almost too well known to describe. Usually, the victim has been feeling fine and in good spirits and suddenly becomes quiet and subdued. He begins to feel nauseated and mentally depressed Life no longer seems worth living. The skin generally becomes pala or greenish and is clammy with a cold sweat. The stomach rebels violently to the moton but emptying it brings little relief. Many remember the misery of previous attacks of seasickness or motion sickness so vividly thai they will never thereafter expose themselves volunt .rlly to circumstances which might bring it on again. There are thousands of alleged "remedies for seasickness." During the last six or seven years there have been increasing efforts to find a drug or drugs which might prevent or, at least, give some protection against motion sickness. The medical departments of the armed forces have been particularly active. Even the temporary incapacltatlon of military personnel has military significance. Recently, a lengthy evaluation o drugs for prevention of motion sickness appeared in the Journal i ot ttu Aznorlc*fi Hed&ftl AMoci- 1 ation. Over 50 preparations were studied on more than 7,000 subjects aboard transport ships. Fourteen of these gave some protection, three of them taken from one to c times daily proved more effective than any of the others. I shall not name them since I do not believe in self medication even for motion sickness and almost any active drug can have unfavorable side effects. However, one or more of these will undoubtedly be available to ship or airline passengers who may need them. Others can no doubt obtain them through their physicians. Two or three other interesting conclusions were presented in this report. One was that there was less seasickness in the older than in the younger military men transported on board ship. Another was that thare was less difficulty in those quartered in the center of the ship than those living in the bow or stern.

North didn't enjoy raising no- trump with a singleton, but h« thought it would be easier to make a nine-trick game than an 11-irick game. He was partly right, for the game at clubs' and the game at no-trump depended equally on guessing which foe had the queen of diamonds. Against three no-trump, West opened the queen of hearts .South won with the king, lost the club finesse, and won the heart i»turn. He then ran the rest of th* clubs, hoping to embarrass toe opponent*. East discarded the 10 of spade* followed by his two other spade*.

South could tell which opponent lad the ace of spades from East's signal. He therefore knew that East had begun the hand with four spades and two clubs, and that West had begun with only three spades and two clubs. That gave West eight red cards, while East had only seven red cards. South remembered, moreover, .hat East had played the nine of hearts at the first trick, evidently welcoming the lead. At the third trick. East had returned foe three of hearts, and West had dropped ,he ten. This looked as though .Vest had led a fou»-ca*d suit and was unblocking to get out ot hi* partner's way. South suspected that West* eight red cards were four heart* and four diamonds. This would eve only two diamonds to find » a home in the East haid. Tha eave on lytwo diamonds to find mh omea the East hand. The odds would be 4 to 2 that West eld the Queen of diamonds. After working this all out, South ook the ace of diamonds and re- urned the jack through West for a finesse. This succeeded, and iouth make his contract with hree diamond tricks, four club** and two hearts.
