Editorial.. . '^6 Vote Restores Political Balance /|oNSERyATIVES MAKE A MISTAKE if they iwiclude that Si* the Republican resurgence at the polls heralds « frass-roots nipvement to their side of the political spectnim and a reversal of national direction. The fact i« that Amerkans ha»» always been conservative tn their politics In that they eventually redress any alignment of power representing an extreme, whether of the right or of the ]^t. If nature abhors a vacuum, the American electorate aUiors any long-sustained imbalance in the relative strength of its two major parties. : Thus the election results of Nov. 8 represent not so much siswing toward the right as they do a strategic withdrawal from tlie left—an instinctive attempt to regroup nearer the center, wiiich has historically been the ideological home base from which politicians of both parties have operated. ;j In 1966, what, for want of a more precise teim, we call liberalism seemed a little too strongly hi control of the nation's fcfhiirs, iwais- a ilttle too enthusiastically concocting too many nostrums fcS the nation's manifold ills. 1^. Ailf JH^ this had come about because of another instinctive reaction, perhaps an over-reaction, two years before—that time to a rigid conservatism that seemed dangerously out of touch with modem realities. •' Trimming the Democrats to size in the congressional elec- ^jjns of 1966 no more guarantees a Republican victoiy hi the presidential elections two years hence than did the elections of 3i64; In 1968, as in 1948. Americans will be looking for the Man and the party they deem best able to lead the nation in the direction historical necessity dictates. ^: America in the 20th century is like a man walkmg into itew and uncertahi terrain—striking out with one foot and then IJje other, now vigorously and now more cautiously, pausing tjccasionally to take his bearings. ;| But because he has a left foot and a right foot does not iRean that one is for advanchig and the other for retreating. Botii needed to carry him forward and to give him balance. This year's elections have simply restored that balance between strides. ay Of Mass Killings Wanes EN LOVE TO KILL EACH OTHER. Unfortunately, their f ^ very zest has led to the perfection of weapons of such destructive magnitude that the form of mass killing called war ^no longer practical except on a small, carefully restricted i; The big nations seem to have learned this. "ITie little ones litill hanker after the past and occasionally their nostalgia for Wholesale bloodletting runs away with them and it is only with great difficulty that the great pwoers can keep it within bounds. India and Packistan had a dandy little war last year, get- t^g to use up a lot of their surplus World War II weapons before they rusted away. The Arabs and Israelis, remembering t^c good times of 1948 and 1956, are hard put to confine themselves to occasional forays into each other's territory. But restrain themselves they must, these pugnacious pint- si^ed powers, if they expect the big ones to continue selling then arms.. The dull debates of the United Nations are a sorry substitute for the excitement and glory of war, but that is simply aji inescapable fact of life in this nuclear age. /RICHMOND, Va.

Brandstadt, M.D. Newspaper Enterprise Assn. Vaccines have recently been developed against two common childhood diseases — mumps and German measles. Both vaccines consist of live viruses of these diseases so modified that they are safe while still conferring immimity. ' The German measles vaccine, developed by Drs. H .M. Meyer and P.D. Parkman at the University of Arkansas, is expecial- ly welcome because exposure of a woman to this virus during the first three months of pregnancy often causes severe damage to her unborn baby. This has been known to occur even though the woman had previously had German measles and was herslef immune to the disease. If, through the use of the new vaccine, all children are immunized the disease will virtually disappear and with it this threat to the newborn. The new mumps vaccine was developed by Drs. M .R. Hilleman and E. Buynak of West Point, Pa. How worthwhile protection against this disease is can be illustrated by the following experience: Several years ago the doctor at a private school sent a letter to the parents of all the pupils suggesting that they allow their children to be exposed to mumps and get it over with while they were young because it is much more serious in adults. All the pai> ents agreed and within three months 66 of the 148 children who had not already had the disease got it. Unfortunately, six of the children developed complications and many of the others brought the disease to older members of the household who were not immune. One teacher in the school also got it. The use of an effective vaccine is much the better way to" prevent these diseases. Q—How can a person tell that a baby is born 2 months too soon? A—The head of a premature is larger in proportion to tiie rest of his body than that of a full-term baby. The eyes and tongue ai-e large and may protrude. The nails are fully formed, but softer than in a nine- months baby. The infant is Inactive and ha.s difficulty nursing. His cry is feeble. His breathing is irregulai- and easily disturbed. His body temperatures is subnormal and fluctuates with changes in Ihe surrounding temperature. His birth weight is less than 5% pounds and the loss of weight in the first few days is greater than that of a full-tei-m baby. The return to the birth weight also takes longer.

People In The News By THE ASSOaATED PRESS CANTON, Ohio (AP) - Because the missus dashed off a note to the commander in chief, the war in Viet Nam can get along a few more days without Pfc. George Schmidt's help and he will be able to be with her on their fourth wedding anniversary Wednesday and on Thanksgiving Day. Schmidt had been scheduled to leave home today for Viet Nam. His wife, Riva, didn't know what commanding officer to contact to make a plea for extension of his leave. So she wrote to Commander in Chief Lyndon B. Johnson. The result: Schmidt received two telegrams, granting* and confirming an extension. He was ordered to leave Sunday for Oakland, Calif., from where he will be flown to Viet Nam.

These may be hard to put into motion due to an impatience to get thipgg done and an irritability with whatever stands in the way. ARIES: (Mar. '21 to Apr. 19) If you insist on being so forceful with othiers you can easily spoil your chances with one whom you admire a good deal. TAURUS (Apr. 30 to May 20) If you remain calm, you find you can rid yourself of annoying, bothersome little things in your way.' Be' vei-y helpful to those who quietly come to you lor asslstaiicei GEMINI (May 21 to June 21) Don't permit pajs to worm something out of you in either a business or personal way that is entirely your own affair.

BERRY'S WORLD I II let you know if I want my ga$ or not." Young Widow Buries 2nd Viet War Husband V\'EST POINT, N.Y. (AP) Twice Mrs. Bernard KlsUer has married and seen a husband off to fight in Viet Nam and twice her men have been shot down in that steaming land. Now both are buried here in the U.S. Mili- tai-y Academy comotery. The 2o-year-old mother stood silently in the thin sunlight Monday as the body of her second husbtmd was laid to rest. Less than two years ago — as Mrs. William I. Reach — she came here to watch the militai"y burial of her first husband. .Vi her side during the 10- minute gi-aveside ceremony Monday were her mother, Olga Bastone of Yonkers; Kistler's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Andrew E. Kistler of Franklin, Pa., and three of their sons, Andrew A., Paul and Joseph. Supporting Mi's. Kistler thi-oughout the service was a friend, Qiris Farlekas, the man who saved Andrew's life in Korea and later was best man at Mrs. KistJcr's wedding. Both Mrs. Kistler's husbands were Army lieutenants, graduates of West Point, and both were killed by small-anns fire. Each had a son he never lived to see. Last week, an hour before tlio young officer's death was reported to his family, Mrs. Kis­ tler bore his son. The young widow maintained her composure through tlie brief services, a rifle salute and Taps that followed. Then they toolc the flag from the coffin and presented it to her. She bit down hard to hold back the tears. Today in History By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS' Today is Tuesday, Nov. 22, the-, 326th day of 1966.
