It just makes you feel older. Adlai's Dilemma Again and again Adlai Stevenson must privately chide the peculiai- fates that have dogged him since 1952. Life in politics has offered him few easy decisions, and the choices ahead look just as tough for him. In the spring- of 1952 he was running for a second term as governor of lllionis. Pressures built up to make him Democratic nominee for President. All the evidence indicates he honestly fought the idea, though he never quite closed the door. Nevertheless, he was sufficiently reluctant to discourage some of his most ardent backers, right in the thick of the convention struggle. Perhaps only Big Labor's decision brought Stevenson back into ..the ..picture—through a ..genuine draft. In any event, he had the poor luck to draw Dwight D. Eisenhower for an opponent. This and other factors sent him tumbling to defeat by some 6,500,000 votes. Yet Stevenson managed to emerge from this rough combat a strong national figure and unquestionably powerful within his party. From that moment on, it was said he could have the 1956 nomination if he wanted it. They're still saying that, and very likely it's true. No real challenger looms on the horizon. But this hasn't made Stevenson's life any easier. For the question he faces in 1952, is not whether he can get the nomination but whether he wants it. Most political sages think Mr. Eisenhower will run again. And since his popularity is now near its all-time high and seldom has fallen far short of that peak, the prospects of beating him are viewed as slim. Frequently these days one hears the report that Stevenson-would like to run for the Senate in Illinois against the Republican incumbent, Everett Dirksen. Should he decide to do this, he would not, of course, foreclose a later chance to accept the presidential nomination again. Still, having already abandoned a governorship nomination once, it seems plain Stevenson would be strongly minded to stick to his original choice another time. If We suppose he did jump into a Senate race and stay there, then the experts agree he would be incurring the party's full wrath should there be strong demand for him in the presidential berth. Most observers feel it would be risky for him to reject a presidential bid'in 1956 on the assumption he might run at some more advantageous time (after Mr. Eisenhower has retired). Party leaders usually turn elsewhere once a ma'n has shunned their overtures. So Stevenson, who no doubt hoped furiously he'd never have another choice like that he faced in 1952, is pretty much back in the Same old boat. You couldn't blame him iff he wished for a friendlier «hak« of the political die*. It's Understandable A Psychologist named Peter Siegle has been investigating people's sleeping habits. He finds that most of us are pretty sluggish about getting out of bed in the morning. His chief explanation is that in time of trouble we're reluctant to face all the uncertainties ahead on any particular day. In other words, no matter what transparent tricks we may use to cling to that bed a little longer, what we're actually doing is retreating from civilization. It's understandable. From that warm, soft haven of blankets and pillows we can't see the wicked Kremlin (though admittedly a few do imagine that Khru- schev and his gang are under the box springs). The turbulent Formosa Straits don't flow nearby. The only fall-out we have to worry about is made of dust and feathers. The pressures of the market place and the strident tones of angry men debating public issues seem nightmarish fantasies. The tax collector is a fuzzy, only faintly disturbing image lost in a sea of softness and peace. Is it any wonder we snarl at the alarm clock which sharply summons us away from this trouble-free island we call our bed? This nightly exile from reality preserves our sanity as well as our physical being. And the way things are going, we'll probably be grabbing more time between the covers than ever before. VIEWS OF OTHERS Indignation Pays Off The News, twice in recent years, confessed surprise at some of the statements printed in a publication called the Georgia Farmers' Market Bulletin. We were taken aback by charges like: "Ninety per cent" of Hawailans are Communists; The Democratic Party is "the chief advocate of godlessness," and One who believes in non-segregation is "allied with the Communists." Then there was one big headline which read (to the delight of logic teachers ever in search of material illustrating irrational arguments); "AH Communists Are Internationalists, All Internationalists are Communists." Our surprise did not stem mainly from the error or excess of the statements. Rather, it stemmed from the knowledge that this was a n official Georgia Department of Agriculture publication, paid for by taxpayers and sent free to many thousands of readers, supposedly as an agricultural .information service, The editor of the Bulletin was Commissioner of Agriculture Tom Linder. We were not surprised when he announced his candidacy for the Georgia governorship last year. He lost. He also lost his job as commissioner of agriculture. The new commissioner of agriculture, Phil Cambell, has markedly changed the Bulletin. He has announced that the publication wll be devoted to things agricultural Instead of political The first issue bears him out. Georgia farmers may now get their money's worth. But the most heartening aspect of the Bulletin change is that many Georgia citizens and newspapers had become indignant over the excesses of the paper under its former editor. And that, happening in a state where fulmination has frequently been politically advantageous, is worth noting out-side of Georgia, and outside of the South.—Charlotte (N.C.) News. Handwriting on the Wall Peter Epson's Washington Column — Curious Relationship Between Dulles, Lodge Comes to Light The News In Russia Newspaper readers in the United States and other free countries of the West learned about Malenkov's downfall hours before the news was broken to the Russian people.

Judge Walter B. Jones, president Alnbama Bar AMOdUion, WASHINGTON — (NEA>— A cur ous relationship between U. S. Secretary of State John Foster Dulles and U. S. Ambassador to the United Nations Henry Cabot Lodge has come to light indirectly. Ambassador Lodge has been having a .tough time with American correspondents assigned to UN headquarters in New York. About 30 of them threw a Dutch treat dinner for him not long ago, to find out what the score was. Right around the table, the reporters complained that the Ambassador was uncooperative, would not see them as often as they thought he should, and would not give out statements on American policy as new issues arose. In short, the reporters said they were forced to go to the heads of other nations' delegations for much of the UN news they thought they should get direct, from the head of the U.S. mission. After considerable of a go-around on this, Ambassador Lodge revealed that on many policy decisions he could not get quick an-i swers. He had '.aken the UN job, he explained, with the understanding that he Was to have full responsibility for it. He was not to be subject to State Department di-; rection. He would report directly j to the President. This confirmed reports prevalent! when Lodge first took the job. At | that time he indicated that he would not take , directives from John D. Hickerson, then assistant secretary of state for UN affairs. Sen. William Langer (R., N. Dak.) challenged Sen. Prescott Bush (R., Conn.) t name one senator "who gets up at four o'clock in the morning and milks half a dozen cows." This was during debate over the congressional pay raise bili. Bush, who opposed the measure, said he thought Sen. Harry F. Byrd CD., Va.) might fill the bill as a farmer. "I should like to advise the senator frojn North Dakota," chimed in Sen. Wayne Morse (D., Ore.) "that I am looking for some cheap labor on Saturdays. He can come out to rny farm and work for me." Cracked Senator Bush, "Then I give the senator from North Dakota the senator from Oregon." Shifting ground, Langer then asked Bush if he knew of a senator who was a laboring man and worked with his hands. "At the moment I am looking at a gentleman who, I understand, has represented and represents labor unions, and I assume that he himself is a union member." answered Bush. His reference was to Sen. Patrick V. McNamara (D., Mich.) who has been unpaid president of a pipefitters' local for 20 years, but whose real job is vice-president of an engineering firm. Rep. Ross Bass (D., Tenn.) has been dubbed the "Social Lion" among new members of the 84th Congress, according to Rep. Frank S. Thompson, Jr., (D., N. J.) an- other freshman member. Referring to Bass, Thompson declares: "He said this morning it would be impossible for anyone down here to ever get hungry or thisty. He meant that he has been able to accept every dinner, cock- taii, luncheon and breakfast invitation tendered to him so far." Captain Eddie V. Rickenbacker, bjpard chairman of Eastern Air Lines, has been serving as a mem-j her of Gen. Mark Clark's special White House task force investiga ing Cental Intelligence Agenc operations. Recently Geneal Clari decided to send subcommittee abroad to check up or. CIA over seas. He asked bis colleagues it say.whether they preferred Atlan tic or Pacific missions.

When a person develops some symptoms resulting from harden- ng of the arteries, either they or their relatives become extreme- eLy anxious to learn something about what is going on. Perhaps the first question which comes to mind is whether hardening of the arteries or arterioscler- tear of living plays a part in the speed with which the arteries become sclerotic or hardened. Overeating, disturbances of hormone secretion, certain diseases of the kidney, chronic infections, have also been blamed.

The process of the arteries becoming less elastic starts early in ife, but it is unusual to have symp- oms from this change until the middle or later years.

Everybody has a mixture of good luck and bad, but the careless player wastes some of his good luck — as South did In the play of today's hand. West took the top diamonds and then shifted to a low club. Soth won with theaceofclubs, and then shifted to a low club. South won with the ace of clubs, entered dummy with a club, discarded a heart on the lack of diamonds and then discarded another heart on the queen of clubs.'

East would have ruffed with (he ten of spades, to be sure, but this trick would have cost him the trump trick he was bound to win in any case. The true point of the hand Is, however, that South shouldn't have had any such knotty problems to solve. He should have drawn two rounds of trumps with the ace and king immediately after taking the ace of clubs. Orily then wn-s It correct to enter dummy with a club and take the discards. If nothing very fortunate happened In clubs. South would be In position to try the heart finesse. When the eight of clubs became established, however, South could confidently lead It and throw the queen of hearts. The ruff would surely cost the defenders their trump trick, thanks to declarer's precaution of drawing two rounds of trumps before entering the dummy.
