Foreign-Policy Cooperation Cooperation with our allies must of necessity be a cornerstone of our foreifm policy. But some of those who talk about it, like Governor Harriman of New York, do not appear to understand what reasonable accord with our friends abroad really mean. It should not mean total subservience to the view« of our allies, which is just an bad in its way as is total isolation from other nations. The way Harriman ancl some others are talking, one gets the very firm impression that they would have us yield and yield on such matter as the defense of Formosa until there is virtually nothing left of our basic position. Harriman recently said our Formosan policy has "failed to take into account the sensibilities of either our Asian or our European friends and allies." Unless there is an utter failure of our diplomacy to communicate our views and receive others' views at the most elemental level, a condition which is most unlikely, then Harrimiui can only mean that we should yield part of our basic position. That position is that Formosa and and the adjacent Pescadores are vi^U to the defense of the United States and that these territories cannot be allowed to fall into Keel Chinese hands. We make no such statement regarding the Chinese coastal island groups of Matsu and Quemoy, indicating only that we come to their defense if attack upon them involved Formosa or seemed x prelude to a Formosan assault. The fact we are willing to consider a cease fire under whic,h the Chinese Nationalists would evacuate the coastal isles shows that as respects them we are flexible. There is room to negotiate. An our Asian and European friends well know our attitude on this point. Its deliberate vagueness should be no great puzzle to them. As for Formosa itself, we are rigid and make no bones about it. Now we certainly appreciate that some of our Asian friends would like to have us get out of Formosa and let the Reds have it. They are hostile to Westerners anywhere in Asia, for one thing. They also believe the Communists are the legitimate government of China, and as such ought to be permitted to finish off their civil war with the Nationalists (on Formosa) without inlefer- «nce from us. They know how it would «nd. We understand, tod, that neither Britain nor France nor any European nation sees Formosa as vital to its security. The concern of Britain and France in Asia has always been mainly commercial. They do not worry about protecting Pacific outposts of the United States. They never have. On this issue we could neverhope to lee eye to eye «ither with these Europeans or the Asians who want us out of Alia. Wt oould take account of their "sensibilities" only by abandoning what we feel it is vital to hold. But if they are really our friends, they will not ask us to do this. If they have faith that we are working not alone for ourselves but for the free world, if they believe we know our own vital interests, then they will either support our basic position or at least not undercut our effort to maintain it. We do not expect to be enthusiastic about our Formosan policy. But they should not look to us to do what they would not do in turn—give away a fundamental defense bastion to please a friend. VIEWS OF OTHERS Russia Please Ignore We hope the Kremlin will turn thumbs down on permitting a Soviet beauty to compete in this year's Miss World contest. We shudder at the thought of all the bickering that might go on il the Soviets set out to win the Miss World title. First there would have to be a committee U> select the committee to tost the scales and the tape measures.. Months and months might pass before an agreement could be reached on the exact degree of latitude «t which the bust measure should be taken. Recalling all the trouble that has grown out of the difference between our understanding of the world "democracy" and the Communists' definition, we can forsee another long fuss over the use of the term "bathing beauty". What a mess things would get into if the Iron Curtain folks should insist on all contestants taking a dip and perhaps swimming a few strokes before the judging begins.—Des Molnes Register .

In Satellite Unify There Is Soviet Strength COMMUNIST COUNTERPART i OF Mm \ Peftf Idson'i Waihington Column — Churchill Gems: Tale of the Nifty Butler; He Juggled the Red Tape WASHINGTON (NEA> — A new story on Britain's Queen Elizabeth II and Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill has just reached Washington via thi 1 diplomatic grapevine. It happened at the London conference of the nine British commonwealth prime ministers. They were all received by the queen at a Buckingham Palace dinner. Churchill wa.s seated on a divan. Mohammed All, prime minister of Pakislan, was standing near. "Sit down, Mi'. Prime Minister of Pakistan," said Sir Winston. "Sit down and 1 have a brandy." Mohammed All indicated he didn't care lor any. "Then have some champagne," ill-Red Sir Winston. Mohnmmcd Alie replied he did- 't drink. He was a teetotaller. "A teetotaller 1" exclaimed the British prime ministiT, suddenly realizing that the prime minister of Pakistan was a Mohammedan, and therefore took no aLcohol. 'God!" exclaimed Sir Winston, "1 mean Bhuddal—I menu Allah!" The remark was overheard, ami the next day one of the guests had occasion to ask the queen if she liad heard it. "Yes." she replied. "Philip could liardly wait till after dinner to tell me about It. "You know," she added, "we're KoiiiB 1° promote the" butler. We ure fcoing to put him on the palace football eleven. He overheard the •emark, too. and he dropped his I ray, But In; rnuiiht, it wit hunt liiiK a drop before it touched the floor." ANOTHKR ('mmriU-IAN ceni was not caught- by the official reporters in Parliament, I hough it happened in that distinguished ns T sembly. As the prime minister walked to the government bench, one of the members was speaking. Sir Winston is becoming increasingly hard of hearing, so he leaned towards the minister sitting next to him and whispered loudly, "What's he saying?" "He is saying that he is modest about speaking," replied the bored minister. The prime minister looked the speaker over for a moment and then mumbled, "No man has a bet- ler right." S EC RETARY OF TREASURY George Humphrey has a habit of giving his chauffeur, Ignatius Perry, a periodic ride In the back seat. Treasury officials are bug-eyed once a week to watch the boss open the car door for Peery, see the chauffeur climb in the back seat, and then observe Humphrey take the wheel and drive off. This routine takes place moit every Tuesday afternoon at four, when Humphrey goes to the weekly meeting of the Foreign Economic Council in the old State Department building, a block away. The secretary drives his personal car because the meetings usually last well past normal quitting time for the chauffeur. When he arrives at the old State building. Humphrey Rets out at the entrance. Perry hops In the front seat, parks the car, leaves n note for the secret a ry where he has left It, and lakes off for the rest of the day.

John Fischetti of NEA Service remarked: "This is not my lirst visit to the Pentagon, Mr. Secretary. I used to work heer." "Is that so?" asked Wilson "What did you do?" "I was a Signal Corpsman in the code room during the war," said Pischetti. Then he blocked out the secretary with the explanation: "I handled Annie Lee Moss' job—juggling red tape."

One way is to ignore the whole business. You play the hand out. give the opponents their 100 points, and go on to the next hand without any comment. A second way is to do a little complaining;.

I should like to know more about tins," Congestive lionrI. (;iilure .is plled to a condition in which the heart fails to pump enouph blooc fnst enough through thf syM The first sign of this failure on the part of the heart is usuiUb shortness of breath following exertion or exercise which formerly did not cause such heavy brt\uh- ing. If the heart condition xet worse, it is followed by JU.TUimi tation of some fluid in !hr luims often accompanied by couch and by the appearance of dropsical fluid or edema, us.mll/. in the feet and ankles, and sometimes in other parts of the body. Congestive heart failure is not it-self a partlculnr kind of heart disease.

This takes only three minutes altogether, and is time well spent if it relieves your feelings. The best way to handle the situation is to make your contract despite the excellent defense that West hns cooked up. You win the first trick in dummy with the queen of diamonds and lead the king of spades. East has to play low. of course, and you thro'.v away the eight of clubs. This play, the transfer coup, changes a club trick for East into a spade trick for West and thus transfers the lead from East to West. West gets this spade trick and will eventually get his king of hearts, but he can never get the diamond ruff because East will never get the chance to return « diamond.
