Taft's Tactical Piloting Will Be Hard to Match It comes as a shock that Senator Taft, noted in the Senate for his energy and drive, has a hip ailment serious enough to compel rim to relinquish an important part of his duties as majority leader for the balance of this session. Taft's ideas and principles have long been a subject of controversy .on both Republican and Democratic sides of the' . aisle. But among all his colleagues, without regard to partisan color, he is deeply admired and respected for his courage, his intelligence, his devotion to the processes of orderly government, his devotion to his country. From the first day he walked onto the Senate floor in 1939, Taft has shown a commanding understanding of the legislative process. All hands ackowledge his to be a master in this field. That grasp has shown itself strongly in the few months he has been active Senate floor leader. A Senate saying has developed that "things don't go right when Bob is not here." There is no question that men of all parties will sorely miss the Ohioan in the days ahead. Sen. Lyndon Johnson of Texas, Democratic minority leader, expresses the general sentiment in these words: "In or out of the leader's chair, I know and you know that Bob Taft will be working for the good of the nation. No more honorable man ever sat as a Senate leader for any party." Taft has acquired a reputation in that post for fairness, firmness, and full respect for the right of dissent, from any quarter. The Republican Party, President Eisenhower, and the country can only hope that it will get even a rough approximation of this kind of service from Taft's temporary <• successor, Senator Knowland of California. Fortunately, Taft intends to attend White House conferences, party-policy committee meetings, and other high- strategy gatherings. He will always be available, within the limits imposed by his illness, for consultation. And so there is no doubt he will still be the central Republican figure in Congress Inasmuch as the senator has shown high loyalty to the President and has submerged s o m e of his own personal views in the cause of serving responsibly the man who defeated him for the Republican nomination, the country must be thankful that his guiding hand will conlinue to be felt. But his day-to-day tactical piloting will b« difficult to match. All men who respect and admir* a sincere public servant with a remarkably sense of duty must wish Taft a speedy recovery and return to tht legislative wars. Views of Others National Sales Tax There has long been tallc concerning a national sales tax, but perhap» not with the sincerity of today. Republicans and Democrats, alike have mentioned and considered Its attempts to balance the budget. Many people will admit that much revision Is necessary in the tax measure and substituting other methods of raising more money. Georgia only recently made an initial stop to reorganizing its tax structure. Personally we can see little argument against the sales tax if It will eliminate as much of the cumbersome tax burden which Is hidden in the form of luxury taxes, etc. Just where the rest of the nation stands we do not know. There will certainly be plenty of opponents, especially those groups who fear any new tax without even thinking of its long-range aid to the public — in administrative savings and collection costs by substituting a sales lax for much of the taxes we have today are complicated and thus demand elaborate checking systems. A step toward simplifying our tax structures, to get the federal government out of the state fields and vice versa, could go a long way toward saving u« money initially and passing the savings on to the taxpayer In a reduced tax burden. —LaQrange (Ga.) Pally News. Beating Economy Deliberate or not, the Pentagon, like a lot of bureaucracies, has a sure fire technique for putting the administration (any administration) and Congress on the griddle whenever a reduction in appropriations is threatened. A few days ago, the Pentagon let leak the word that it was surveying 20 Army camps and probably would close some' of them. That did it. • The home folks moved in a hurry. They assembled delegations of mayors and aldermen and Chamber of Commerce brass, called their Senators and Congressmen and caught the next train for Washington. Of course, they'll be told at the Pentagon that the Army needs the camps and surely would like to keep them and the folks in the neighboring towns have been nice and tliey'd like to continue the pleasant and mutually beneficial relationship. And the possibility of greater economy goes out the window, because the Pentagon can't be convinced that the camps could be kept open and savings made by eliminating waste. The same thing Is happening In other fields, loo. Various groups are tearing their shirts to save hospitals, bridges, dams and other flood projects. The farm bloc is busy and the veterans organizations are going to bat to prevent any reduction in VA spending. The technique has worked before and it will work again. —Greenville (S.C.) Piedmont. Demands of the Outdoors If the man at the next desk staggers In Monday morning, bleary-eyed and unsteady on his legs, don't Jump to the conclusion that this la the product of an alcoholic week end. Moro likely he is a suburbanite who lost his week end. In the glare of the May sun, amid the spinach rows nnd the Iris beds and the green grass that grows all around. Later In the season he will be tanned and thin (relatively), with the far-seeing gleam to his eye that is the mark of the outdoors man. Just now he is taking off winter's fat and flabbiness the hard way, working It off. Quite likely, too, he is trying to do the work of two week ends in one, so that he can with a clear conscience depart for some favorite fishing stream the next Saturday. —Kansas City Star. SO THEY SAY I would be very happy to step down, not only from the government, but from the political scene. But I have a profound conviction I should stay. — Italian Premier De Gasperi, on eve of elections. * * * It's a greatly overgrown village. — Architect Frank Lloyd Wright, on New York. * * * My (battle) decisions are made within a certain framework established in Prance before I took command. The framework is secret and personal. — Oen. Raoul Salan, former"commander of French Union forces in Indo-China. * * * I consider this test (firing A-shell) a milestone in the history of atomic weapons and I «m highly satisfied with the success of the test. — Ailm. Arthur Radford, incoming chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff. ' • t * It may not make any difference to you, but I have sworn allegiance to the United States Constitution, government and flag, and I mean to maintain It. — V. C. Gcorgescu, naturalized American of Romanian descent, who refused to spy on U. S., thereby risking safety of his sons still In Romania. * * * I cannot go back and continue defending an administration In which I have lost filth. I have too much respect for the American people not to tell them the truth. — Cnrlos P. Romulo, Filipino ambassador to the U. S., leaves Liberal Party of Filipino President Qulrino. High and Dry — For th ePresent Peter Edson's Washington Column— Another Pall of Secrecy Falls— This Time in Ikes Favorite Food WASHINGTON —fNEA)— The I porters he tied it himself. White House has now been forced 'Dean* at 79 o slap a tight secrecy classifica- ion oh all the favorite recipes of President and Mrs. Eisenhower. Giving them out to food editors and other curious cooks proved to be too much The new "Dean" of the House o: Representatives, In point o£ age, is Rep. Robert Grosser, Cleveland O., Democrat, who celebrated his 79th birthday on June 7. Representative Grosser was born in Holytown, Lanarkshire, Scotland, and was brought to America as a boy by his immigrant parents. He is of a chore for the j best known as the ,,author of White Home road retirement-plan legislation. This is his 19th term in Congress. Two other Democrats, Sam Ray- staff. The rather President fancies l --~- ""Son himself as a pret- good cook in an amateur sort f way. Mrs. Eisenhower, although ot too interested in cooking, does ave a couple of favorite dishes 'hich she likes to whip up. The new secrecy order on the 'irst Family's favorite concoctions ame lo light when the National ress Club asked the President to ubmit a recipe for his favorite arbecue sauce. The club is riming a contest to select a prize uce for its annual barbecue and orieo. The word leaked out that the resident was pretty disappointed not being able to enter his bar- ecue formula in competition inst those from his fellow (Dem- crat) Tcxans. Secretary of Health, c., Oveta Culp Hobby, House Minority Leader Sam Rayburn id Associate Justice Tom Clark the Supreme Court. But the new in against recipe publicity forced ook Eisenhower out of the run- ng. When Ike was in Denver last ummer, organizing his campaign, e staff had numerous barbecues which the head man insisted on •eparlng his own sauce. On these ccasions he was fond of bragging 's recipe was the best in the tuntry. He Tied One On Picture hats worn by Washington amor girls at the British Em- issy's garden party for 2000 tests were put to shame by the credible headgear which Arnbas- dor Ali of Pakistan wore for this ashington celebration of Queen izabeth's coronation. It was a gold turban with four rds of stiff white muslin. One cl jutted a foot or more in the nir and the other end drnped down over his shoulders. The ambassador told the bug-eyed fashion re- burn of Texas and Carl Vinson of Georgia, have served 21 terms in Congress and so are senior to Representative Grosser in point of ser vice, though they are younger men. Representative Grosser became senior congressman on the recent death of Rep. Merlin Hull of Wisconsin, who was 82. Runner-up on seniority in the House is now Rep. Brent Spence of Kentucky, who is six months younger than Grosser. 'Dean' at 86 Seven years senior to 'Representative Grosser, on the Senate side of the Capitol, is the venerable but vigorous bachelor senator, Theodore Francis Green of Rhode Island. At Senator Green is probably the oldest man on active service in government. Senator Green has to run for reelection next year. If he makes it and lives out his term he will become the oldest congressman in American history. The record was set by the late Sen. Justin Morrill of Vermont, who died In 1898 at age !. When Senator Green was asked if he was trying to beat this record, he dr.' ied with the comment, ' 'That is something I never discuss with anyone. As a matter of fact, I don't even discuss that with the Lord." House-Made Economies The economy record of the House of Representatives to date shows cuts in the Truman-pre- pa red budget of a little under 13 per cent. The House has now completed action on 12 appropriation bills for nine government departments, the ndependcnt offices, Army civil 'unctions (rivers and harbors) and District of Columbia. Truman bud;et requests of S10.3 billion for these agencies were cut by $1.8 billion to $8.5 billion. The whopping big Department of Defense budget is still to b acted on by the House. The Eisen hower administration has cut th Truman defense requests from $45 5 billion to $43.2 billion. Nobod knows what the House will do t this proposed S2.3 billion cut. Warms Up to House Bills Senate debate on the House passed appropriation bills is jus now beginning to warm up. As ha been the case for the last severa sessions, Sen. Paul Douglas of 111! nois has proved himself to be on of the most serious students o appropriation detail and one of th most sincere advocates of econo my. At one point in the State-Justice Commerce appropriation bill de bate, Senator Douglas dramatica pulled out a big magnifying glas to read small-type footnotes in proving that claimed economies o $55 million were complete phonic; At another point the Illinois sena 'or declared that the figures fittei perfectly the well-known definition of the three kinds of lies: "Lies damn lies and statistics." Farting Sorrow A beautiful friendship between the American Medical Association and the American Legion was shai t e r e d recently when the AMA House of Delegates passed a reso ution against giving veterans free ;reatment in Veterans' Administra tion hospitals for their non-service connected disabilities. A year ago both the Legion am AMA saw eye-to-eye on this ques ion. Both organizations passed res olutions for a new investigation o! non • service - connected disability cases. The Legion threw a big uncheon for AMA leaders to talk t over. But suddenly the doctors grew cold on the idea and never ;ave a return courtesy luncheon The Legion then went ahead with ts own investigation. It found tha> nore than a third of the non-ser- ice disability patients had been advised by their private doctors to ake Veterans' Administration hos- Jitftlization, if they could not pay 'or treatment. AMA officials Jusi aughed at this report a.nd passec ,heir resolution against such treatment. Legion officials now plan retali- tion by withdrawing their support r o m another AMA resolution vhich opposes free government Tiedical care for dependents of •nembers of the armed forces. the Doctor Says— By EDWIN P. JORDAN, M.D. Written (or NEA Service More than half of the victims of Muscle strength is obtained by poliomyelitis do not develop paralysis which requires after-care. What care is required depends, of course, on what muscles are affected and how seriously. The first step in after-care, or treatment of polio after the acute disease has subsided, is to make sure that pain is relieved and to speed the release of muscle tightness. Until this is done, proper motion of the involved part, usually arm or leg, is impossible. The relief of pain nnd relaxation of muscles is accomplished by the use of intelligently prescribed sed- ntivos, heat, paslve motion, nnd simply the passage of time. As soon as H becomes possible, (he effort Is directed to stimulating muscular movements. This must be done with care. In accomplishing; it several measures, Including massage, may be necessary. Once the plan of action has been decided upon it Is possible to proceed with the various measures that are necessary to bring about (he greatest possible 'degree of muscular recovery. | increasing the amount of. activity slowly. This is done in many different ways and in many cases includes underwater exercises. Underwater exercise has been » great boon. The temperature of the water must be kept just right and the water itself supports the limbs so that they can be moved with much less effort than is necessary In the air. Walking, when the patient is ready for it, has to be undertaken carefully and gradually. Sometimes support with braces is necessary. In mild cases, restoring the muscles may take only a few weeks; in the severe ones it takes much longer. The Improvement often continues for a long time; In fact, the amount of paralysis at the height of the disease Is almost always greater than it will be later on. May Need Surgery When Improvement s e e m s to have" stopped, the final steps In aftcr-ciue must be begun. This may Involve surgery, such as thr lengthening of a tendon. At other times, special apparatus can be used or the patient may be taught to develop trick movements which really mean the substitution of one muscular group for another. In all of these steps, paitence, care and skill are important. The results are rewarding because most of those who have been crippled can be greatly improved and eventually become able to take part in many physical activities. Those who work in this field are often amazed at the courage shown by such patients in overcoming their difficulties. •JACOBY ON BRIDGE Here's When Nor To Draw Trumps The bidding in today's hand was very easy. South had a sound opening bid with 13 points in high cards and 2 points for the singleton. North had an excellent double raise with strong four-card trump support, 11 points In normal high-card strength, 1 point extra for the Icing of South's bid suit, and 3 points for the singleton. The double raise showed strong trump tupport In a hand that Erskine Johnson IN HOLLYWOOD HOLLYWOOD —(NBA)— Behind the Screens: Move over, you Hollywood clotheshorses — a movie queen who was spanked in the newsprint woodshed for not dressing to the teeth Is out to dazzle movietowners with a knock-your- eye-out wardrobe.

South was not really tempted to try for a slam. He had a minimum opening bid, and it was very unlikely that the combined count was even 33 points. Hence South contented himself with bidding game, and North naturally had to accept this decision. The play should have been every bit as simple as the bidding, but South found a way to be set. The hand is worth a second look because it Is a type that you often encounter In actual play. West opened the five of hearts, and dummy won with the ace. South immediately drew three rounds of trumps and then looked around for new worlds to conquer. Unfortunately, he had already conquered himself. There was now only one trump left in dummy, and South had three losing diamonds In his hand. It was obviously impossible to ruff his three diamonds with dummy's one trump, and South wound up losing three Kathleen Hughes, the shapely IT to the boys Who see "It Cama From Outer Space," separated from 'her hubby a month ago.
