Offer to Hot-Copy Harry Armed Service Manpower Unless you go through life standing at ease with your eyes on your toes, it's pretty hard not to see something periodically which makes you wonder if the military will ever learn. There's the business of World War II veterans being called back to fight years later in Korea. Why must we have heat-tip old family men of 35 flying; jet planes in battle, undergoing strains that would tax an unencumbered kid of 20? Just where in the name of the nearest draft board are all the youngsters that it's reasonable to suppose 1 have been coming along since World War II? They can't all be at Princeton. Just as we were getting properly riled up over this situation along came a dispatch from Washington that gave us a clue on the manpower situation. Sec-ins some congressmen, trying to find out what the military does with all that money, came across a nress release ballyhooing the opening of a plush- sounding cocktail bar for officers at Fort Campbell. Ky. The handout spoke glowingly of "candlelight, soft music and Dubonnet decor," whatever that last means. Still in the tone you would expect in the announcement of the opening of a 52nd Street saloon, the pi-ess release went on to praise the efforts of a particular major for his monumental efforts in setting nn this drink spot. After reading about all of this he could take, one of the comrressmen allowed as how if \ve were pavinf salaries of Avmv people to dn jobs like that wMlfc a war was beintr fought in Korea, there ought to he some changes made. The Army was not alone with its foot in its mouth. The persevering congressmen also wanted to know how it happened that every time a dog or a cat died on a Navy transport service ship at sea, three commissioned officers had to make an investigation. Then the dead animal had to be stored in a box at a 32 to 38 dfcgree temperature until the ship reached port. Furthermore, the incident had to be reported by radio. One congressman said that one was going to be investigated. Throughout World War II the U. S. armed forces were famous to their allies in Europe for using three men on a job that one could do. And toward the end of the war, the Germans cut.out something like 15 per cent of their paper-work jobs in the army to free more men for combat. Those things happened eight years or ST RRO and it seems like some of that kind of experience would eventually rub off on our big military minds. But there's little evidence that it has yet. Situation Still Muddled The operator of the 100-million-year- old Mc'ramec Caverns in Missouri has offered to build Harry Truman a special underground office to type his memoirs in. No phones. Peace and quiet galore. There's only one catch, as we see it. The temperature in the ceverns remains at a constant 60 degrees. That's too cold for Mr. Truman, and his memoirs would suffer for it. Mr. Truman's most striking prose efforts, as we recall — the letter to the drama critic about Margaret's singing, the letter about the Marine Corps — were produced in the steamy climes along the Potomac River. Put him to work underground in a 60-degree chill and chances are he'll never be able to generate, the heat which has distinguished his literary efforts of the past. One Puts Up With a Lot Under Certain Conditions Views of Others Toward Union The Presbyterians recently met and found a way to mend many disagreements they had known since the War Between the States. Two of the nine branches of their church recently united. Methodists, who split about that time, have found a common ground, and in 1939 three branches came together to make what is now known as the Methodist Church. So It goes. Christianity, the world over, takes on many forms and faces. These divisions are a source of satisfaction to the individualists who feel that freedom of religion means freedom to set up a new church any Sunday morning, if they like. To others these divisions are a source of great embarrassment, and of sorrow. Especially in the missionary field it is constantly pointed out that there is a duplication of the expenditure of money and of time. It is difficult to make the Chinese, for instance, understand that all Christian churches, regardless of what persuasion, have the same aim and object, for they appear so different on the face of things. With a fuller realization of the time and the money that are spent in overlapping efforts, at home and abroad, many denominations which have split within themselves are now making earnest efforts to find a common ground for reunion, and Christendom, looking on, is bound to fee! that any effort toward agreement on any matters, religious or otherwise, is well taken. The world Is so full of bickering, miiumdrr standing, iault finding carping criticism and downright malicious misinterpretation that it seems a great blessing to clisco.vor any group, under any circumstance, trying to compromise differences and make peace with another. It's all to the good. —Laurel (Miss.) Leader-Call. Peter Edson's Washington Column — Greek Royalty's Visit Problem; Bankers' 'Bankers' Hours' Better WASHINGTON — (NEA) — The Greeks In Washington are all upset because the theii (ill K.m n Press The 'Button' Don't ever let anybody tell you that tuiverti.s- Ing doesn't pay. Not that It's an important part of our business, but it's Just the truth. Advertising does pay and we'll prove it. ^ol with a large assortment of successful sales campaigns or figures before and after advertising, but with hot weather. How many years lias it been since the pinnacle of coolness was pictured as a "wade in the branch." You can recall the cool and contented atmosphere they used to create for calendars that companies sent out. Now the air conditioning folks have made us discontent. Nowadays folks won't shop In a store unless it's air conditioned. Many of them won't think about working in an office that doesn't have a cold water fountain with air conditioning too. Take St. Louis. The telephone switchboard operators walked out on the company because they got tired of giving out with heat-wilted "hr-llos." The firm hadn't, heard of air-conditioning. And now we hear the prediction that by 1955 there'll hardly be a new modern house built that doesn't include air conditioning in the plans just as we already take the heating system for granted. This may be the dawn of new age. For it does seem that it's getting hotter every year and air conditioning's the only answer. To hear the air conditioning folks (ell it, wading in the branch can be downright messy. And anyway, you'd have to ride out to the branch in an nirconditioned car to enjoy it. —LaOrange (Ga.)

Jap-Koreans Don't Mix THE U.S. Army runs into some queer problems in training foreign officers. Typical was a near riot at one of the U.S. training bases when a party for South Korean and Japanese officers was arranged. It was set up without either group being told the other was to be there. When they met, they refused to shake hands. Nothing but cold stares were exchanged, plus some angry mutterings. When the commanding officer of the training base arrived, he near- y blew his stack. Having served n the Far East, he knew the deep enmity between the Japs and Koreans. Figures Don't Lie REP. HOWARD W.

Indeed, there are other foods such as pork, beef, veal, sausage, gravy, nnd several kinds of fish which may also be taboo for a victim of gout because of the relatively high amounts of purine that they contain.
