EDITORIALS Nehru Really Ought to Do Something About His Eyes T HE evidence seems to grow that Prime Minister Nehru of India is suffering from a pronounced case of eye trouble, lie looks across the vastncs.s which separates India and America and sees America's re- ai'mament effort as a grave threat to world peace. The Russian menace at his doorstep, however, he sees only dimly. And t h e threat to peace India itself has created he sees not at all, · The United States is frequently chided by Nehru for spending billions to rearm itself and help strengthen other nations menaced by Communist aggression. But he has few unkind words' to aay about Russia despite the growing threat to India both from within and without. And he sees nothing at all wrong with building up an armed force to hnng m a threat over Pakistan in the two countries' dispute over Kashmir. As Sen. Green of Rhode Island pointed out recently: "We are far more unselfish than India In spending large sums and men for mi ideal of peace in the world. India is keeping forces in Kashmir to promote a selfish interest." · . India would do well as Sen. Green bluntly suggested, to practice what it preaches. Dollars From Tourists "DRITAIN'S Chancellor of the Exchequer ·*-* Richard A, Butler, h a s reported to Commons that Americans drawn to England next summer by the coronation w i l l bring in a si/able number of much-needed dollars. . ' · That's probably true but it shouldn't be ' Inferred that Britain's travel business has lagged this year. It never has been bettor as a matter of fact. ; Tourist rates on planes has been an effective stimulant. Water travel, however, is still the backbone of. the travel business. Eastbound ships were packed to the gunwales as early as mid-May, and every stateroom westbound is said to bcHakcn until 3ate in September. ·*, Tho devalued pound does pretty well for purchases in Britain, but Spain and Austria are even more attractive on the monetary basis. They constitute a new area of travel competition for Franco, Switzerland and Italy as well as for the British Isles. ;; The last year tourist business has hit $74 million. The goal for coronation year is Raid to be $100 million. That's not to be passed over lightly in an economy marked by austerity.

More Than Coincidence TT'S probably something more than coin- ·*· cidcnce that Secretary of Agriculture Charles F.

That's t h e place where for n good many years Allan Kline, president of t h e American Farm Bureau Federation, has been paying his taxes. Kline and Brannan are about as friendly ns two,bulldogs--one with a bone, the other without. The secretary will find large satisfaction in telling his Iowa audience some uncomplimentary things about their neighbor. Texas Task for GOP LOOK THIS YEAR'S BIRD NEST?

Roving Reporter NEW JWUGS FOR ANCIENT DISEASE By H e r m a n N. Bundescn, M. D. ANTIBIOTIC drugs have finally enabled us to **· control and cure to a great extent syphilis and the other venereal diseases, which h a v e long been high on the list of our worst and most wide-* spread enemies. 'People in general have long misunderstood these diseases. Many I h i n k that no one with syphilis can ever be cured, an idea tiiat has been f a l s e for m a n y years. Others think that certain o[ these diseases, such ns gonorrhea, arc mild and unimportant, which is an equally false and perhaps even more dangerous idea. Up to nosv, of course, it has been true that the cure for syphilis was long drawn out, difficult and often f a i r l y painful. The antibiotics have changed the treatment drastically. Syphilis in the early stages is readi- ' ly controlled, and most o£ the infection can be removed with int. uu.voKsiiN honvy doses of penicillin and some of the newer antibiotic drugs. More difficult to treat ape those cases where the infection has spread from its first location to different systems of the body. Syphilis of the blood vessels and heart is one of the most difficult. When the disease involves this system, it is not helped as readily by the usual lype of treatment. The nerves are another system frequently affected. Syphilis may cause injury to the spinal cord and even the b r a i n , and bring on a form of insanity called general paresis. People with this form of the disease are very irritable, careless about their clothes, lacking in judgment, and absent-minded. They may have d i f f i c u l t y ' pronouncing words and have delusions of grandeur. Syphilis of the nervous system is usually diagnosed by testing a sample of the spinal fluid. Penicillin is often very helpful, even for general paresis. Heavy doses of the drug must be given over a long period of lime, in combination with f e v e r ' t h e r a p y . ! This is best given by deliberately i n f e c t i n g the person with malaria germs.

"YOU WONDERFUL KIDS"/ By Hal Boyle of the AP JEW YORK Wr--There was no one on the beach ·*·' except the fat man and a quartet of teenagers playing catch with a tennis ball. The four youngsters--three lean boys and a golden-haired girl-were like a Grecian fric/.e come lo life, but their laughter somehow disturbed the fat man. "Noisy kids," he muttered. "Probably can't wait until the sun goes down so they can start smoking marijuana. When I was that age, I worked all summer. But today--all kids are useless." A shower of sand sprayed over bis reclining form as the girl leaped to catch a mis-thrown ball. "Sorry, Popsie," she said. "Go away!" shouted t h c fat man angrily. "And don't call me Pcipsic." "Okay, Popsie," she laughed and leaped away. He watched the four play a moment longer, and ·knew in his heart why he felt grumpy toward (hem. It was because they were lithe and young. Making vague sounds like a discontented walrus, he picked up his fat bald head and his sad fat stomach and waddled heavily to the ocean's edge. The waves were high, and he hesitated. But then he found a pause between the breakers, waded in and started swimming. "AH, fhl« Is |l," he sighed.

An American Credo __^ commend to readers the p! philosophy inherent in this "Credo" presented by Bin 1 Temple's Central Show Printing Company house organ, "The Higfit Hand:" "f DO NOT CHOOSE to be a common man. It is my right to be uncommon--if I can. I seek opportunity--not security. I do not wish to be a kept citizen, humbled and dulled by having the state look after me. I want to take the calculated risk; to dream and to build, to fail and lo succeed. "t refuse to barter incentive for a dole. I prefer the challenges of life to the guaranteed existence; the thrill of fulfillment to the stale calm of Utopia. I will not trade freedom for beneficence nor my dignity for a handout. "f will never cower before any master nor bend lo any threat. It is my heritage to stand erect, proud and unafraid; to think and act for myself, enjoy the benefit of my creations and to face the world boldly and say, this I ttave done." Ingenious Acorn Rake have been informed by Miss ' Mary O'Ifarrow, 324 2nd N. W., of a successful way to- rake acorns. Miss O'llarrow, who is particularly eager to pass the idea on to fellow Garden Club members, has invited interested persons to see how she has used a piece of window screen on the rake to make it effective for this added job. She used a screen the width of the rake. With an awl she punched holes in the screen through which the tines of the rake could penetrate. With the use oE wire and pliers she wrapped the screen around the tines so these protruded through about three- fourths of an inch. With this, she said, raking acorns is a pleasure.
