Historian Freeman Attained HighestGoalsbySelf-Denia The sight of a truly dedicated man at work is wonderful instruction for us all. And such a man was Douglas Soti- thall Freeman, the great historian and biographer who died the other day at Richmond, Va. Freeman was the definitive historian of the Confederacy. He spent 19 years researching and writing his f o u r-vol- time biography of Robert E. Lee, and then another eight telling the story of Lee's commanders in a three-volume work. For the Lee biography he got the Pulitzer Prize. Soldiers the world over gave his second project the highest accolade; they considered it indispensable reading for any military strategist. When he died he had completed five of a roposcd six volumes on what was generally recognized as the key biography of George Washington. Hfe also was planning a master history of World War II military operations. That he did not live to undertake this, or finish his Washington, is the world's loss. Yet it waa not the remarkably authentic product of his typewriter that alone made Freeman a memorable figure. It was the way he worked. His dedication to the task was complete. For many, many years he subjected himself to the unconventional rigors of a daily schedule that began at 2:SO a.m. In the dark hours of the morning he did the painstaking labor that the world now celebrates. Until 19-19, an important part of his gruelling day was taken up with the editorship of the Richmond News-Leader. His daily appearance at the office was a clock the doorman could set his watch by. "Time alone is irreplaceable; waste it not," was a motto he liked. Freeman believed any man c o u 1 rt achieve nearly any goal he set or himself if he were willing to pay the price of self-denial involved. His own life gave stirring support to the belief. He endured the stiffest imaginable disciplines to attain the highest goals in his chosen ield. 'Hill Pay'How About For Cabinet Members? Congress wants to go home by the end of July, and a lot of people are hoping the boys get their wish. Not the least numerous among the well-wishers are President Eisenhower's cabinet members. Some of these would like a real chance to learn their jobs. As it is, they have been spending almost as much time on Capitol Hill as in their offices. Men hardly take office be- fore they ore «ummon«d up th« ilop« to testify — an expert*, of course — on their various departments.. If they lend to sound a trifle vagu* on some ospects o{ their work, they *r* apt to be chided and prodded and pestered for days. Maybe they sneak down to their offices on weekends to try to become what the lawmakers are hollering at them for not being. They nre so busy reporting on t h e public business they have little time to conduct it. Possibly what we need is two secretaries for every department, one to run the place and the other to present the department's case before Congress. The latter ought to have office space near the Hill. Their equipment could include mobile file cabnets, station wagon warmed up and ready at the office entrance, a map-and-chart team complete with pointers and easel, special long-life briefcases, and a medic standing by with throat lozenges, nspirin and a Thermos of distilled water. These officials might merit extra compensation, loke a pilot's flight pay. This "Hill pay" would be a reasonable recompense for their daily exposure to the dangers of committee-room shock— an ailment brought on by the grinding of newsreel cameras, the icy stare of the TV lens, the nervous rustle of reporters' pencils, and endless badgering by congressmen.

A group of ten Southern power company executives declares that the next ten years in the South will surpass the past decade. They give the following factors: ••Availability of people who want to know they are accomplishing something worth while; avnilnbility of electric power; gas at n reasonable price and fnlr treatment on taxation." The Atlanta Constitution cites the reason for moving South given by a Chicago metal decorating concern that, after two and one-half years of surveys of markets of the country, decided to locate at Tan-ant City, Alabama. The president of the concern said: "We like everything about the South _ Its people, its climate and its future outlook, u is our desire to fit closely into the wayof life and become a part of the economic renaissance." Those are pleasing words. Now our prosperity is being called a renaissance! —Chattanooga Times. 50 THEY SAY I don't care how many Lehmnns (Sen.), Tydings (ex-Sen.) and Dnily Workers malte attacks on McCarthy.

The man who took the lead in killing the cheese amendment was none other than Rep. August H. Andresen of Red Wing, Minn., a Republican hlph-tariff man from the heart of the northwest dairy- farming nren. Tills is the same years »go proposed the cheese amendment and took the lead in getting it passed in the first place. Though the wrath of the Truman administration, the State Department, the Marshall Plan boys, the free traders and every milch cow in Europe descended upon his head, Representative Andresen stuck to his churn. When his cheese amendment expired after a year's stormy run, he got Congress to renew it again for another year. The Andresen amendment was due to expire again June 30. 1953. In hearings before committees this year, Representative Andresen had again testified in favor of further renewal of his pet amendment. He considered it necessary for the protection of the American dairy industry against for elfin competition. amendment was 123 to 95. Several things happened overnight In Washington to effect this remarkable reversal of what has been one of the American foreign trade policies most criticized by our allies in the last two years. One was that the heat was put from several sources. High officials tn both the White House and the De- cheese amendment. Under this Section 22 action, the President, after investigation and report by the Tariff Commission, may recommend import restrictions on any farm products which interfere with programs of the Department of Agriculture. The President Is limited, however, to reducing imports by only 50 per cent of the historical average for each commodity. He cannot put an absolute ban on the import of any commodity .which was first attempted under Representative Andresen's cheese amendment. Advocating and foreseeing the expiration of the cheese amendment on June 30, the President proclaimed that, beginning July 1, foreign-made cheese might be imported during the coming year in the following quantities; 2,780,100 pounds of Cheddar, 4,600,200 of Edam and Gouda, 4,167,000 of blue mold, 9,200,100 of Italian type. This timely action by the President gave Representative Andresen the out he needed to change his position and still not lose face with the dairy farmers. For the Richard Carlson, turned director for "Riders to the Stars," also plays a role in the film and he's telling it: "I wanted to hold down production costs, so for me I work cheap.". . .Red Skelton, who had an idea about filming all-star shows In Las Vegas for next season's TV fare, has given up the brainstorm. KEEPS MEN SATISFIED MARLENE DIETRICH'S explanation of her enduring fascination, in the July Iss.ue of a woman's magazine, is an eyebrow - lifter: "It is a woman's job to sense the hungers in men and to satisfy them without, at the same time, giving so much of herself that men become bored with her. It is the same with acting. Each man, or woman, for that matter, should be able to find in the actress the thing he or she most desires and still be left with the promise that they win find something new and exciting every time they see her again."

JORDAN. M.D Written for NEA Service "I am nn addict to black coffee," writes Mrs. C. C. "I drink 12 to 14 cups a day. Is this likely to be harmful?" The active Ingredient in coffee is a drug known as caffeine. A cup of strong coffee contains enough caffeine lo produce a definite druff effect, though perhaps his is somewhat lessened by the fact that the caffeine is combined in coffee with some other substances. Coffee, therefore, acts as a stimulant which increases temporarily mental and physical energy, and nets to some extent to relieve mental and muscular fatigue. Many people drink coffee also just for its comforting and relaxing effect, laffeine as n drug is a well- known brain stimulant. It is used sometimes to combat some of the harmful effects of acute poisoning with morphine or other dcpresslnp drugs. It stimulates breMhmg and is used by doctors for this purpose in certain cases of asthma and other disorders of breathing. Caffeine acts also on (lie heart and (he blood vessels. U tends to so that moi 1 blood may flow through, Rnd it is a dirot hart stimulant lading toward maintaining the blood pressure or even raising it somewhat. Another effect of caffeine is to stimulate the formation of urine. Cnfftlnc and its chemu-nl relatives nave therefore been used for a one time lo inc-ronse unnnry flow when that w*» dftairnblr becunae or UM formation of cart&ia of dropsy or other conditions. Likewise, ordinary doses of caf- fine act directly on most of the muscles,..causing them to contract more powerfully and to become tired less easily. These are the principal actions of the drug, caffeine, although it affects to a lesser degree many other functions of the body. KEKP USE MODERATE Coffee or other beverages con : tninitifr caffeine usually produce no harm if consumption is reasonably moderate. Unfortunately, nervous people are the ones most likely to drink too much and it is in them that injury from caffeine is particularly likely. Twelve or H cups a dny is too much to be really desirable. When susceptible people drink too much of some caffeine-containing beverage, they are likely to become excessively nervous, develop pounding of their hearts, headache, sleeplessness, trem- blings, and digestive disturbances. When such symptoms occur they are almost always caused by loo large an intake of the active drug, caffeine. Tho symptoms can be quickly lessened by cuUing down on the excessive intake. Mrs. C. C. should probably do this. •JACOBY ON BRIDGE i Weep No Tears Over Foe's Boner By OSWALD JACOB! Written for NEA Service Sometimes you get the chance to make a fine play only because an opponent has already made a mistake. That shouldn't spoil your en- trump to dummy's ace and p small trump back towards his hand. East made the mistake of playing a low heart on the second round of trumps, hoping: that South would go up with the kinf*. As it happened, however. South was clever enough to make the safety play of finessing the ten of hearts. West naturally discarded a club on the ten of hearts, thus reveal- ng the trump break. South switched immediately to diamond s, knocking out East's ace. East couldn't return a club, for then dummy would ruff. Any other return gave South a chance to draw one more trump with the king and then run good tricks until East got ready to take his trump trick luse two spades In today's hand, after brief but South deserved credit for the finesse of the ten of hearts and also for the rest of the play. East could have defeated the contract, however, by playing the jack of hearts on the second round of trumps. If South allows East to hold the trick (the best play), East returns a club. South dares not ruff in his own hand, since then East will have more trumps than declarer. If declarer ruffs the third round of clubs in the dummy, there is no way to lead a trump through East.
