Berlin Riots Show Red Hold Slipping in Satellite Nations The Russian attempt to blame "Western provacateurs" for the widespread uprising of Germans in Soviet Germany sounds almost like a pitiful wail. It gains nothing from being alternated with feeble Communist admissions that many German complaints are justified. The Russians really understand that the world knows this was a remarkable demonstration of bare-handed rebellion against oppressive authority — without hope of success. No provocateurs would send men to do battle against tanks with sticks and stones. The riot-and-strike wave fanned out from East Berlin to envelop many other cities, and the Reds have been hard- pressed to bring them under control. At last reports, disturbances still were in progress in seven cities. Altogether the Russians have arrested some 16,000 individuals for allegedly playing roles in these flare-ups and some feel the total will climb to at least 30,000. Dozens of men have been executed by firing squad, and others killed by Russian tank, burp gun and rifle fire. Even children have been mowed down. Despite all these cruel reprisals, the Germans have gone on refusing to work, sacking- Communist offices, scuttling ships, damaging mines and otherwise sowing havoc in the Soviet zone. It can be lio solace to the Russians that the allegedly docile Czechs also stirred in wrath against their masters at Pilstn and other centers. And there are reports, too, of trouble in Bulgaria and Rumania. The Russian is pictured as a great bear whose paws pack a powerful punch and who is yet agile and alert enough to outwit a bigger enemy. But the Russian is behaving like a clumsy dinosaur who feels the ground quaking beneath him an dknows no defense but to stamp wildly upon any life that falls beneath his giant feet. The Germans have disclosed the glibness of one of the most often-heard of latttr-day political axioms: that no people under a modern dictator's yoke dare rise in rebellion. This was no full-scale revovlt. But it suggests what niight have happened had the Germans thought this the moment for a fight to the death. A comprehensive general strike, coupled with wholesale sabotage and continuous rioting, would be hard to combat. You cannot execute or imprison an entire population of 18 million. The tremors from the events in East Germany have registered sharply on the seismographs in Moscow. The Russian grasp on the satellite lands has slipped. Tha effects of this powerful realization upon the men in the Kremlin may be profound for them and for all the world. Trip of Necessity Americans should wish success to the President's brother, Dr. Milton S. Eisenhower, on his current trip to South America. His goal is better hemispheric relations, and evidently we could use them. It would be nice to report that while we havfc, for these many years, been concentrating upon relations with Europe and Asia, our friends in Latin America have developed a stronger and stronger love fo rus and today are bosom comrades in all the trials which beset tha Western countries. But this isn's so. The "good neighbor" policy has lang-. uished in neglect. Meantime Dictator Peron has sowed seeds of distrust of America, and the busy Communist conspirators have further inflamed natural jealousies that exist in many lands. Thfc Eisenhower mission is thus far more than a pleasant "good-will" journey. It is a necessity if we are to buttress the solid hemispheric front we should present to the troubled continents of Asia and Europe. Views of Others War Predicted in 1955 A former Czech Army officer, trained by Russians in Soviet military strategy, recently Informed the House On-American Activities Committee of Russian plans to "take over Western Europe before 1955." The witness, whose identity was shrouded in secrecy to protect him from Communist agents, testified that the Soviet target date was disclosed to him at a Russian military school for conquest at Moscow between 1945 and 1047. The Russians, he reported, were Justlflng their aggressive plans by alleging that the British planned to attack Russia in 1955. "Therefore, we Russians must tnke over the Dardanelles and the Bosporus before 1955. We shall close the Mediterranean Sea, and so we will prevent British and Americans from having a through-way through Suez to the Indian Ocean. We shall not wait until they strike, but comrades, We shall take over the Western Europe before 1955." For whatever It's worth, there it is. No one outside the Kremlin can say with authority how au- thenic refugee's testimony Is. The whole thing sounds fantastic, more especially since we don't want to believe it. However, we shouldn't forget that before December 7, 1941 any Japanese plan to attack titt United States vit Penrl Harbor would have sneme.d fantastic — so fantastic that none of the admirals or generals were prepared when it came. Adolf Hitler laid out his blueprint for neBros- sive war In a book lie wrote in prison called "Meln Knmpf." Copies were sold all over the world, but few of the world's leaders believed the fantastic plot he Inid bare. Too late did they realize the truth of Ills prophecy. We certainly hope (he prophecy exposed at the Congressional hearing is false. But what if it's true? The Czech Army officer may have been hollering "wolf" when the wolf wasn't there. However, we suspect the wolf may be planning to be there one day. The House committee predicted that the testimony "will be met with disapproval by some in the United States who will seriously object to being Interrupted from the placidity they so undeservingly enjoy." If the testimony is true, we may Wish in 1955 that we had spent a few more dollars for planes In 1953. —Rocky Mount (N.C.) Telegram.

Publicity tales from MGM about, how Clark Gable, Ava Gardner and John Ford "suffered" In Africa during filming of "Mogambo" are getting the ha-ha from a gal who was there. She's pretty Martha.

Joe Mc- I'elcr Edson Cartlvy. One of the President's frist nets fter he. got bnck was to distpfitch .ls chief congressional liaison assistant, retired Maj.-Qen. Wilton B. Persons, up to Capitol Hill to see Senator McCarthy. Tho message which General Persons had to de- Ivor was that when the President' spoke nt Dartmouth, he didn't have Senator McCarthy in mind at all. Antl-McCarlhyism Paraphrased After Senator McCarthy had his •u-RUinent with the new U. S. High ommtssionov to Germany, Dr. James B. Connnt, one prominent Democrat paraphrased the most common criticism heard of Wisconsin Joe and wise-cracked: "McCarthy agrees with Conaut's objec- ive, but not witli his methods." Backstage Pressure nn Keller For the past several months .here has been backstage pressure —especially from the Navy — to invo K. T. Keller, 61-year-old president of the Chrysler Corp., gently cased out of control over the Pentagon's guidcd-missile program. The principal reason has been .hat all three of the armed services have been irked by tile rigid •estrictions Mr. Keller has main- .ained on the release of any information about guided missiles. Army, Navy and Air Force have 11 wanted to cin more talking about •iome of their fantastic new wei • Jons. But Keller clamped on a lid. Though he has been in charge of :he program 1'or several years, Mr. Keller has never granted one interview on the subject of missiles. During tiie recent White House luncheon at which President Eisenhower Defense Secretary C. E. WIlKon and Mrs. Keller, t.hc guided-missile man confesed that he felt he was petting too old for the job. He wanted to quit the Pentagon. He said the missile program was now at a stage where purely military reasons should govern future decisions on missile production rate and use. The preliminary research and development were completed. The President sympahtized with Keller's personal problems .and complimented him on the job he had done. Whereupon Secretary Wilson paid his former rival In the automobile business a glowing compliment. Thanks to Keller's efforts, said Wilson, he had not had to worry one minute about the guided-missile program, since taking over at the Pentagon. Later that day at a press conference, however, Wilson was not so kind with another automobile competitor. When questioned about the controversial Air Force contract with Kalser-Frazer, Wilson remarked that he hoped to avoid that kind of thing in the future. Democrats and Hatch Act Eome question has been raised as to whether the Hatch act, governing political practices, will permit the Democratic National Committee to issue its new magazine, "Democratic Digest." First issue is scheduled to hit the newsstands July 10. At first glance, the law seems to put a restraint on political publications, but the violation Is put on the buyer, not the seller. What the law says is that whoever purchases any article of any kind from a political committee shall be guilty. The penalty on conviction Is jail and-or a minimum $5000 fine. The intent of Congress In passing this law was to stop the sale of such things as SI programs, autographed by the President or eomo other political big shot, for prices of $5 or $50. just to raise political campaign funds. Also, there was a desire to stop the sale of advertising in political publications, as a cover for political shakedown contributions. Counsel for the Democratic National Committee has gone into the legilsative history of the Hatch act in preparing an opinion justifying publication of the new magazine. The opinion given is that prohibition of publication of a magazine for legitimate sale by a political organization would be in conflict with constitutional guarantees of freedom of press and speech. Parallel cases have come up a number of times in connection with the publication of political papers by labor organizations. In every case the Supreme Court has found that there can be no inhibition of a free press. The women's division of the Democratic National Committee has for years published and sold on a subscription basis a magazine called, "Democratic Digest." There was never any protest. The name of this old magazine was soo good that the National Committee lifted it When the decision was made to put out a more general publication for all voters—men and women alike. GOP Dropped Its Project One curious twist on this Democratic magazine case is that the Republican National Committee thi spring made plans to put out a similar publication. Republican law yers decided, however, that such publication would be a Hatch act violation. So the project was dropped. Former Chairman Arthur Summerfield recommended, however, that the law be amended to permit such publications in the future. 'Old Hand' at Home Anyone still wondering how Mrs. Mamie Eisenhower is making out as First Lady can get the word from the oldest employe in the White House. He is Chief Doorman John Mays. He began work at the Executive Mansion In 1909, when William Howard Taft was President, and has served continuously. The newest First Lady has taken to her role, says Mays, "like she's been here a long time." Rolls Out Carpet Mrs. John Foster Dulles was so Intrigued by the colorful picture designs in oriental weaving she saw on her jaunt to the Middle East with her Secretary-of-State husband, that she brought back a number of the smaller-sized rugs.

M.D. Written for NEA Strvlc* "A close relative of mine," writes Mrs. Y.. "has iibrositis. What causes this condition, and what kind of treatment can be used for it?" This kind of question comes up rather frequently, since fibrositis is by no means rare. Perhaps the best way to describe it is as a kind of rheumatism which affects particularly the soft tissues, such as the' muscles and ligaments, rather than the joints, as in arthritis. Fibrositis can involve particular areas of the body iwliich is the most common I or it can be pretty much all over By and large It causes pain and aching, soreness when the part involved is moved, and a certain amount of stiffness. Since "-His" means inflammation, in this case the soft tissues are considered inflamed. Fibrosi- tis may start suddenly with pain In some part of the body and for no apparent reason. Or It may begin gradually with fatigue com- l, r , i^'^.-n (he soreness, pain and stiffness. There are many possible causes of fibrositis. The most common is associated with some infectious or toxic condition This is one kind of rheumatism In which removal of an infected tooth or infected tonsils is sometimes of benefit. Injury Is also a common cause, but sometimes the injury may have been so slight as to escape notice. Cold, overexertion and overexposure are commonly blamed. If the fibrositis is associated with an acute infection, then rest and the appropriate treatment for that infection Is needed. If It comes with upsets of the stomach and Intestines, perhaps a liquid or soft diet Is In order. The removal of an infected tooth or tonsils may or may not help. If repeated, small injuries are tile cause, then that, of course, should be eliminated. If bad weather or exposure Is responsible, Uien staying indoors and avoiding exposure may be enough. Other treatments depend on what appears to be the cause or causes and what can be done for it or them. PAIN IS IISVA1, Around the shoulder and lower portions of the back, the neck, the tissues around the large joints, and the chest wall are common locations. Pain is almost always present, but swelling is far less constant. Tenderness to presure is the rule. Nodules or little bumps under the skin are frequently felt in or near the tender regions. Most of us have had attacks of fibrositis at one time or another Most recover without any treatment. However, since ftbrositls is usually painful, quick relief is much desired. Aspirin, of course helps some. Heat treatments 01 other forms of physical therapy are also useful in bringing at least temporary—and sometimes permanent — relief. Recovery is the rule but it, too, often takes a long time • JACOBY ON BRIDGE Technique Beats Many Bad Breaks By OSWALD JACOBY Written for NEA Service The bidding of today's hand presents no probelm. South has a minimum opening bid of 14 points and shows this by choosing a re- bid of only one no-trump. North Ersfa'ne Johnson IN HOLLYWOOD balanced distribution and ;herefore likes the idea of a no- trump contract. He raises to game since he has a count ol 15 points and can therefore be quite sure that the combined count is more than the 26 points usually needed for game. Even though the combined count of the North and South hands Is 29 points, the game is difficult to make. The trouble is that none of the finesses will succeed and that neither diamonds nor clubs will break favorably. When the South hand was played in a recent rubber bridge game by John F. Carlin, the well-known Chicago expert, the bad breaks were overcome by good technique. Carlin lost two finesses, but managed to make the enemy tate a third finesse for him. West held the first trick with queen of spades and continued the suit. Carlin won the second in dummy with the king of spades in order to try the club finesse. He went after the clubs rather than diamonds because if the finesse lost it would remove the entry of the opponent who had the dangerous suit (spades). The club finesse did lose to West's king, and West led another ter for every six people In the company and everyone lived in prefabricated houses with carpets.

LETTER TO IAJCY LUCILLE BALL and Desi Arna« are beaming over a fan letter they just received from fan, Bernard Baruch. "When 'I Love Lucy' is on television and I have company," Barney wrote, "I always excuse myself from my guests and go into my bedroom where I have a TV set. I come out looking as if I had been cogitating on serious matters but really have had a wonderful time watching you." Lucy and Desi are big-screening it these days in "The Long, Long Trailer" and the snail-like shooting pace of MGMovies compared to zippy TV filming has Lucy biting her nails. "I'm nervous," she cracked. "I haven't worked for eight minutes." People refuse to believe it, says Lucy, but she didn't leave MGM in •; 1947 because the studio failed to', give her the roles she wanted. "I had the best of everything," she says, "but I gave up my MGM contract to escape from an agency contract. I just can't be around people I can't be happy with."

His entry had been knocked out, and his hand was dead. Carlin won the spade return with his ace and finessed the nine of diamonds, losing to East's ten. East returned the queen of hearts, and Carlin won in his own hand with the king. It was now time to test out the clubs, but the suit stubbornly refused to break. East discarded n heart on the third round of clubs, and Carlin remembered that East had likewise discarded a heart on the third round of spades. Evidently, East had begun the hand with nine red cards. This discovery pointed the way to the correct lay for the contract, Carlin led a heart to dummy's ace and then gave a heart trick to East. This forced East to lead up to dummy's diamonds, giving dummy the last three tricks.
