Worthy Successor Sir Anthony Eden, the new British prime minister, has been schooled for hi» task far more than moat who accede to mch high responsibilities in the democratic world. He will need nil his schooling. Ht inherits all the terrible strains of the Cold War struggle that lias dominated world events since the close of World W»r II. No man charged with leading a great free nation in these times can im- •gine his life will be anything but a STinding succession of tense days, and endless round of difficult choices. Ahead for Prime Minister Eden nre th* problems of a probable four-power conference, of maintaining some kind of solidarity with the United Stales on the tough Formosan defense question, of seeing the important Paris pacts through to the point where West Germany actually undertakes rearmament in the NATO cnuse. And while he is confronting these thorny matters he will be tried at the same time with the necessity of preserving if he can the substantial economic progress Britain has made in the past few years. Yet the British can be thnnkful they have so talented and practiced a public servant to undertake the load Sir Winston Churchill hns now laid aside, Sir Anthony's career is indeed nn illustroua one. He almost perfectly personifies the skilled diplomat—handsome, polished, devoted to the arts of patience and forbearance in international negotiation. Few men in the 20th century have dealt face to face with so many heads of state, including dictators like Stalin, Hitler and Mussolini. But though he has always been wedded to the belief that differences among men can be talked out, he has demonstrated forcefully that he is not willing to negotiate when it means appeasement In 1938 he dramatically resigned from the late Prime Minister Chamberlain's cabinet on just such an issue. Most recently, Sir Anthony exhibited his skill at the council table by his painstaking and fruitful labors in helping put over the Paris pacts as a substitute for the European Defense Community rejected by France. A prime minister, of course, is not simply a foreign secretary who has moved to No. 10 Downing Street. But in this turbulent world, command of diplomatic •kills and grasps of foreign issues is vital to successful leadership of a great power. Ed«n has these credentials. He it no fiery orator like Churchill. Ht it a mild »nd moderate man. But those who suggest that the agreeable fooled. Not with out good reason was h« fmcide reflects no strength will likely be m*rk«d «t »njr ««r)y ti&gt for a place in the high councils of government. Prime Minister Kden moves now in (he shadow of his great predecessor. But the prospect is strong that he will make his own light seen. VIEWS OF OTHERS Priest Caught in Red Game The ways of the Soviet Union though often hard for the Western World to fathom must be clear to the Russians. Perhaps they have their reasons for ordering the expulsion! of Father George Bissonnctte, a Roman Catholic priest, from Moscow. However, as no reason was given it may be resumed thai the Russians wanted to get In a llg at religion and at the same time show the Americans who to boss In Moscow. More likely, the move was to retaliate for the denial of a visa extension to Archbishop Boris of the Russian Orthodox Church. Usually when such an order of persona non grata Jj Issued, the Russia me fling "espionage charges" at ihe one under attack. As such were not made In Father Blssonnette's case. It is spite. Yet as wa* pointed out by a State Department spokesman, the coses were not comparable, assumed that hU expulsion order was based on a* the American priest was ministering solely to Americans In Moscow, whereas the Russian bishop was on a temporary visa to atwdy a /action In the Russian Orthodox Church In the U. S. It Is doubtful whether the American protest will be to any avn.ll, for WK should know by now there Is no logic In the Russian gaine of tit-for-tnt. Their Intention IK to provide incident for Incident, with no reason Involved, merlcy a desire to salve the national ego,— Portsmouth (Va,.) Star. You Can't Win! P. T. Branum's theory about the plcntltude of American suckers la still as true today as ever. On every hand we find evidence that Mr. Branum's estimate on the birth rote of suckers was, If anything, on the conservative side. The Idlest proof of sucker quantity and quality which promises the suckers thnt in return for one Is a streamlined "film-flam" dhninlctter craze little old »37.60 U. S. savings bond, they w.lll In no time reap R fortune amounting to $38,400—or *51,200 If the bonds arc permitted to mature. "You can't lose' is the some old fraudulent slogan for this some old fraudulent, tedious, and out-worn racket. But, old and phony as It is, the suckers are still falling for It here and In other U. S. areas where the gct-rlch-scheme Is mushrooming into a brief fad before collopsing as It always does. "You cim't win," will be the sobering discovery for the suckers so very-ready to believe "you can't lose." The fact that the 1065 chain scheme involves a $37.60 U. S. bond is some sort of commentary on the current level of American prosperity. During thu depression, the chain crime swept the counlj-y on nothing but a dime. A letter chain featured one dollar.

"My legs are gone" he says in explaining his decision. "Sixteen years is enough.' o Thus ends the career of a man who had performed yeoman service with two big league clubs. Brooklyn and Pittsburgh, as we remember anri who had lately been sold lo Baltimore in a $70,000 deal. U takes honest dealing with oneself to recognize physical facts nnd come to a decision in the foce of whnt baseball still apparently has to offer. Roe could have taken the $21,000, staggered through the coming season some way probably and few could have said anything. The fact that he will not be lured because a triumph for personal honesty.— Greenville tS.C.) Piedmont. There'll Always Be a Loose One 'eter fdson's Washington Column — U. S. Negotiating Series of Atomic Enegry Agreements with Others WASHINGTON — (NEA)—First K series of ntiw agreements on caceful uses of atomic energy are ow being negotiated between the nit d States and foreign nmtrics. The- Eisenhower administration opes to have these initial, btlater- agrecments .signed nnd ready r Semite I'fltJ/icatlon by May. If 't .specifically disapproved by the nate within 30 days, they will go to effect nutomalically. This marks the first concrete ep towards realization of Presi- nt Elsenhower's iitoms-for-peace n, presented to the United Nais In December, J953. Eventual- it Is hoped that these bilateral roemcnt.s can be merged into a caty creating nn international ol of atomic materials for pence- uses. list November. President ELsen- wer named Morehend Patter-: ns h)s .spec.:) u I reproyeniji/ivf? j carry forward , interim- nal atomic energy negotiations.

They glum, Britain, Canada, Bel- South Africa. Australia, Prnncc, Portugal and Russia. These powers are nowhere neoi agreement on the big, inter-na tlonal pool plan. Negotiations with Russia have been on and off several times In the past 15 months. Secretary of Stale John Foster Dulles and Soviet Foreign Minister Vyachcslav M. Molotov personally conducted talks on the Elsenhowe, plan at Geneva last year. Kecenlly Pravda blnsted the whole thing us American propaganda. It is to offset this charge (lull the Elsenhower adrnfntslra- tlon hopes to produce the first bilateral atomic energy treaties within the next few months. Just whnt countries will be covered in these Initial agrements has not been announced. The United States now has isrecmenls with Belgium, Canada, South Africa and Australia for the purchase of uranium and other atomic: raw materials. The British have been partners with the Americans and Canadians on atomic weapons development from the very beginning. New agreements ii'ilh all these countries are now ncccssasy. This Is to make effective Ihe sharing of atomic know- how as provided for by Ihe Atomic Energy Act revisions passed by Congress last year. The new agreements'are of two types, ca»ed "Red" nnd "Green." Red agreements are secret and cover the procurement of fissionable materials for American use Green agreements will be open treaties. In effect they will do lit- lie more, than say that the signing- countries are members of a club pledged lo sharing atomic development for peaceful purposes At the beginning, this will be largely for research and power production. There is no Idea of a giveaway in these treaties. Receiving countries will h .ve to provide their own reactors, cyclotrons and other research equipment. After the have this equipment, the Unite States will agree to sell or to lea. uranium fuel to run it. The United States has alread pledged 220 pounds of partially e riched U-235 for this Intel-nation; development and Britain ha pledged 44 pounds. None of it ha een delivered, pending approvi of the new treaties. The Elsenhower plan contcn Jlated that Russia nnd other com tries possessing uranium woul make contributions lo Ihe Inle intlonnl pool. Any malerials i his slock pile would, of course lot be avllablc for use In weapon' To this extent it will also be disarmament plan. for NEA Service P. JORDAN, M. D. Sh-h-h-h!
