Shrewd De Gasperi May Be Able to Carry on Programs As result of the Italian genera! elections, Premier De Gasperi and his center coalition may be said to have won a. creaky working margin in parliament. It is a sad thing that he came so , close to winning much more decisive control. His coalition of parties drew 49.79 per cent of the popular vote in the important Chamber of Deputies, gaining a narrow 16-seat edge. Had he captured just 50.1 per cent, Italian election law would have given him 64 per cent of the seats. That advantage would have assured Italy of reasonably stable government for the next five years. As it is, it will be touch and go, with De Gasperi having to be on his mettle every step of the Way. His margin in the Senate, 14 seats, is no greater comfort. Yet the disappointment over this outcome must not be allowed to obscure the fact that De Gasperi is in control. With skill and ingenuity, which he most certainly has, he may be able to carry on his programs pretty much as before. The most vital of these, naturally, is approval of the European defense pact, plus general support of NATO and western policies. The West has no firmer friend than the Italian premier and it would be a serious loss if somehow his hands were to be tied. De Gasperi's own party, the Christian Democrats, polled nearly 11 million votes, no small share of thfe 27 million total. But the percentage — 40 — was off eight points from the last election in 1948. That spelled a loss of 44 seats in the Chamber and 17 in the Senate. Who gained? The Communists and Left-wing Socialists together garnered 35 per cent of the vote this time, as against 31 per cent in 1948. But more damage was done by the extreme Right, where Monarchists climbed 4 per cent and Neo-Fascists almost as much. This 8 per cent bite represented a tripling of the Rightist vote. De Gasperi is bitter at voters Who went to the extreme Right, believing they exercised their voting privilege capriciously. From this distance it would certainly appear that they were not overanxious to reward good government. Fundamentally, the result reflects the sam'e questionable conception of democratic government which the French adhere to so maddeningly — the notion that any deviation of principle, however minor, ought to justify the founding of another party. With its plague of splinter parties, the Eureopean multi-party system i> proving itstlf an unconvincing exhibit of the virtues of the democratic way. Double Harvest to Reap As we did for India two years or so earlier, we must now come to the aid of drought-stricken Pakistan with a substantial grant of wheat. The need is overwhelmingly clear. The alternative to granting this aid is starvation for many in Pakistan. The administration has sponsored the proposal, and it merits prompt consideration and approval from Congress. The United States has the wheat to spare. In, fact, the country has a huge surplus which is a handicap to the domestic market, and the outlook would improve if this could be reduced markedly. So from the selfish viewpoint as well as the humanitarian, the grant to Pakistan recommends itself. Views of Others Repeat Performance? When John L. Lewis, union mine leader, calls for further federal experiments in the conversion of coal into other strategic products as a measure of national defense and to promote American economy, it will be remembered that he, more than onyone else, was the one who put a partial quietus on coal production. It was John L. Lewis who struck fear into the hearts of householders to the extent they put in oil systems and adopted other fuels in place of coal. "It Is essential to national defense," Lewis said, "aside from the contribution to modern economy that the oil, gasoline and other volatile pententlals In con! be mnde increasingly available to the population to safeguard us from the impending world shortage of oil which is inevitable. It is all very well to explore these possibilities In coal, if we can be sure of an uninterrupted and continuous supply. This continuous supply was something we did not have when Mr. Lewis was flying high, wide and handsome. We remember yet, how he kept the nation's mines closed In the face of the country's needs. We see he Is talking about the other side of the coin now. He thinks we should Investigate all the possibilities of coal and make It more essential than It ever was before. We don't know how much a pledge from him would be worth but what sort of guarantee can he give that strikes will not interrupt the production of coal, if suddenly we do make it more important in our everyday existence? —Shelby (N.C.) Daily Star. The South Changes Survey by an industrial company shows that a great ctinnge in population has come about In the Southern stoics. That Is for the reason they are becoming industrial. The increases In population in the cities and In rather small towns ar« gvent. In the decode of 1940-50 the urban population gained 35.9 per cent while the rural population gained only a .fraction. The greatest relative gains were made; by comparatively small towns in Maryland, Virginia, Florida and Alabama, Texas led the nation in the percentage of increase in urban population. For 20 years there has been a constant swing from agriculture to industry. The South is still agricultural, of course, but manufacturing has increased wonderfully. Defense production and war demands accounted for much of the gain, but outside of that the avlue of all sorts of products has increased along with volume and spread. Cotton is not king any more. Cotton textiles there, however, still lend the nation. The .survey indicates the variety involved in the Southern change. Formerly there were just two big items — cotton and textiles. Now, there are factories for everything. The use of woods, particularly pine, is common and of great volume. Tobacco, oil and fibers have attained great production. The old order changeth. —The Tulsa World. SO' THEY SAY One thing is sure today — Uncle Sam can't go it alone. We must maintain sure and friendly ties with the other free nations of the world. — Leverett SattonsUH, chairman, Senate Armed Services Committee. * * * We're dealing with a dishonest enemy who hasn't been defeated. Our hopes for achieving real peace are remote. But it is certainly worth trying. — Lewis K. Cough, American Legion National Commander on Korean truce. * * * Ws would not, be justified In prolonging the war with all Hie misery that it involves In the hope of achieving, by force, the unification of Korea. — President Eisenhower, in letter to South Korea's president, Syngman Rhce. * * + Do not be short-sighted in selling Korea down the river, because if you do Asia will go behind the Iron Curtfdn. — South Korean ambassador. Dr. You Chan Yang. * * * Americans should be wise enough not to make Korea another China. — South Korea president, Syngman Rhce. * « * No man wanta to be the last one killed In » war. — LI. David W. Lee, West Orange, N. J., serving iii Korea. —Among Other Things Peter frfson'j Washington Column — McKay, Finds Hours Non-Union; Uncles Cars Burn Regular Gas WASHINGTON —(NBA)— Secre- , ;ary of Interior Douglas McKay ' was called on recently by his predecessor, Oscar Chapman. Chapman said he didn't want anything, just called to pay his respects. "Sit down! Sit down!" urged Secretary McKay. "If you just called to pay respects, „* you're probably Pettr Edson the omy man in the country who has any respect or me." They chatted a few minutes, and hen as Chapman was leaving, Sec- •etary McKay said: :"You .didn't ell me, when you briefed me on ihis Job, that I'd have to work at t 18 hours a day." Bans High-Test Gas All government automobiles and rucks have been ordered to tank up on regular instead of premlum- rrade gasoline, in an effort to cut down on expenses. This is the second time General Services Admin- stration has put through the no- ilgh-test-gfls order. The ban was on all during World War II and tor four years thereafter, but it was lifted in 1849. Only exceptions now will be for G-men, T-men. Secret Service, fire fighters, military and other government aw enforcement cars, or vehicles milt for high-octane operation. Grim Reaper Hurt Dems Republican control of the U. S. Senate in the Eisenhower adminis- ratlon can be attributed to death, according to Democrats on Capitol Hill. The deaths of two Democratic senators before the election was responsible for the change in poli- ;ical control. The senators were Brien McMahon of Connecticut in 1052 and Virgil Chapman, of Kentucky in 1851. Had they lived. McMahon would have served until 1957, Chapman till 1955. In special elections to fill tlieir seats, Republicans Prescott Bush of Connecticut ond John Sherman Cooper of Kentucky were elected. That gave the Republicans control of the Senate, 48 to 47, with one Independent. If McMahon and Chapman had lived to serve out their terms, the standing today would be 49 Democrats, 46 Republicans and one Independent. Nothing Works Undersecretary of State Walter Bedell Smith told a Foreign Service Association meeting in Washington about a trip he made to a collective farm, while he was U.S. ambassador to Moscow. "On our way in," said General Smith, "our interpreter stopped to speak a few words to a very old Russian woman who was cutting brush with a sickle along the road. He said to her among other things, 'Mother, how are things on the farm?' " 'Ah! They are terrible!" she answered. 'On this farm nothing works. The tractors don't work. The plows don't work. The trucks don't work. The only thing on this farm thai works has just been made a heroine of Soviet motherhood.' " Silence on H-Bomb Energy No peacetime use of the energy released in a hydrogen bomb has yet been disclosed. Closets thing to leak on this subject came when prof. Harold Urey of Chicago University, one of the pioneers in development of the original atomic bomb and a Nobel prize winner, was quizzed on a discussion panel. Asked if there were anj' commercial applications for H-bomb energy, Professor Urey declared he had Just attended a conference on this subject, but the results were classified as secret, so he couldn't talk about them. Atomic Energy Commission does have four reports from private electric and chemical companies in the use of nuclear energy for commercial development of power. The catch is that to release the reports would give awny present U. S. plutonium production rates. French Ship of State Lists Here's a French explanation of why France has, such an unstable government, with ministries falling faster than Americans can keep track of them:: "Take the American Constitution: delete the individual U. S. stales, then delete the President, delete the Supreme Court, and delete the Senate. Keep only the House of Representatives. "Entrust to the House and to it alone and fully the soveriegn rights of the people. Let the House draw from its own ranks a committee whose members would be the cabinet heads, in charge of all executive duties. Let the House have the power to remove this cabinet at its pleasure. "That is the French constitution." Chingr's Not Talking Cyrus S. Ching, retiring head of Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service, has opened a private of- jfice in Washington to serve as a consultant on labor relations. He's being urged to write a book on, his experiences in settling industrial disputes, and Is considering it. But his inclination is to stay away from doing too much writing. National Planning Association once asked Mr. Chin gto write a pamphlet. It was to explain how he was b to manag errblas naiot teela able to manage labor relations at U. S. Rubber Co. from 1920 to 1942 without a strike. Mr. Ching turned down the offer, explaining that If he did that labor union officials would know all his secrets and might deliberately set out to destroy his technique. Lockheed Aircraft and Libbey- Owens-Ford did permit case studies of their labor relations program to be made for National Planning Association. Both companies had excellent labor records. But after the pamphlets came out, they both became involved in labor disputes. "It's a good bit like a man trying to write a book about how he gets along with his wife," Mr. Ching explains. "As soon as his wife reads it, she'll begin to see through some of the things he's been doing, and she won't trust him any more." Courteous (Ouch!) Dig Under the guise of courtesy, congressmen can really shove some pretty sharp barbs at each other and get away with it. Here's a recent exchange between Sen. Wayne Morse of Oregon and Sen. Wallace Bennett of Utah: Mr. Morse—"Mr. President, will the senator from Utah yield to me for two minutes. . .?" Mr. Bennett—"The senator from Utah will be happy to yield to the senator from Oregon for two minutes—if the senator can count two." Mr. Morse—"The senator would be quite surprised." Sunday School Lesson — ' J By W Written for NE.A SrrvicB E. Gilroj, O. D. appears frequently in St. Paul's Epistles to the Churches. The gospel of love and brotherhood, together with the conditions under which the Christians lived in pagan and hostile environments, called for mutual aid to a high degree. Paul put the obligation very plainly: "Bear ye one another's burdens, mid so fulfill the law of Christ" (Galatians 6:21. Bui Paul, himself a self-supporting worker, saw that some were taking advantage of this fine doctrine to take advantage of their well-disposed brethren by shirking their own responsibilities. So, he declared, almost in the same breath, "For every man shall bear his own burden," "Let every man," he said, "prove for his own work." That this situation was not confined to the Galatinns is evident in Peter 3:16), has made too little of these plain principles of personal and mutual responsibility that are as valid and vital for social welfare and modern democracies as they were for the small groups of Christians to whom Paul wrote. Paul was a great believer in Christian social action, and he set down its most distinctive principles with a clear and unerring hand. HOLLYWOOD -(NBA)— Exclusively Yours: Deary Steffan, out to make a new life for himself minus Jane Powell, will be a Bkat- I ing Instructor at a new ice rink in west Los Angeles. . .Specialists are consulting with Dr. Danny Leventhal over the leg injury that has put Susan Ball on crutches.

Wherever groups of Christian converts gathered together in various cities, they .became the "Churches" of the New Testament— at Ephesus, Corinth. Phillippi and other places. They were won to the new faith chiefly through the missionary work of St. Paul, and seem to have been bound together in a, very close fellowship, either living together or in close and mutually-helpful relationships. Under such conditions the sort of. problems quickly arose that have done to wreck most community experiments which often begin with much faith and idealism. One of ihcse was "Brook Kami," famous now because of the distinguished New Engenders who participated In Its hopes and failure. But the reason It did fail was due to failure of individual members to share sincerely in the vision and Ideals of the founders. They did not measure up to the faith, courage and sacrifice that might have achieved success. It was in this respect that failure. Insofar «s there was failure, soon occurred among these early Christian groups.

ELEANOR POWELL'S denying printed reports that she's been got a second trump trick to defeat the contract. The hand was played in a Commercial League Team Match in New York, and at the other table Tom Curley, of the Bell Laboratories' Team, managed to make his contract of five diamonds against the same opening lead. The difference was that Curley didn't make his intention clear 19 WEST NORTH 485 V873 • Q872 *KQ64 EAST id 10973 V 1096 2 »K * J 10 7 3 SOUTH «D> 4AKJ62 East Pass Pass Pass * A43 + 9852 4 J 10965 #A Neither side vul.

After winning the first trick with the ace of hearts, Curley cashed the ace and king of spades. He had intended to take the ace of clubs next, but he changed his mind when West dropped the queen of spades. Leaving the ace of clubs in his own hand, declarer led a low spade towards dummy. West saw no danger and no reason to ruff, so he merely discarded a low club. Dummy ruffed, and declarer returned to his hand in the most natural way with the ace of clubs. When Curley now led another low spade, West still didn't see the danger. He discarded another club, and declarer was able to ruff again in dummy. Now he could cash the king of clubs to discard his losing heart. The rest, of course, was quite easy.
