One Grain of Truth Somebody said the other day that a lot of us are more concerned with who is right instead of what ia right. In other" words, that there isn't enough passion for the truth. Human rivalry seems to grow ever more intense at nil levels of our life. The jockeying for advantage leads many to ignore or trample upon the truth. In the public realm, government be- comei increasingly secretive, cloaking its errors, seldom conceding it is wrong. Politicians talk as if virtue were wholly partisan. The opposition must be evil because it is the opposition. In our private worlds the situation may be better, but even here the quest for truth and the regard for it are not mounting toll of broken homes; not the least is the frequent failure of husband and wife to face the truth about each other and about themselves as individuals. The notion is abroad that individual survival in a highly competitive use compels a man to don protective armour even against those closest to him. But too often it serves as a shield that deflects the truth. The competition is real enough, and so is the uncertainty it breeds. Uncertainty naturally makes many of us feel insecure. We like to be able to count on the sure, the knowable thing. Too many times we cannot. But shutting out the truth, or refusing to look for it, will not actually contribute to our security. More likely it will only heighten uncertainty and feelings of insecurity. Most successful marriages, according to the experts, develop when two people are able to face their own personal shortcomings and each other's but decline to be defeated by the reality of human fraility and strive instead to make a workable partnership out of the material at hand. Perhaps surprisingly, in the public sphere there are politicians who are not afraid to acknowledge mistakes, to concede the worth of a sound argument no matter who makes it, to admit that problems can have more than one aspect and more than one solution. These well-adjusted fellows on the whole do very well at the political trade. In fact they often do better than those who believe their only safety lies in presenting themselves encased in impenetrable armor, and surrounded by legends of thir own eternal Tightness and invincibility. The truth ia frequently hard to come by, sometimes impossible to find. But when it lies within grasp we should •eize it, and it can be dug out we should unearth it. There ii more peace of mind, more feeling of assurance, in knowing and accepting one grain of truth than can be found In all the suits of armour from here to China. Lost and Found Department You would think it would not be easy to lose track of so bulky a figure as Georgi Malenkov. But it was a fact that for a couple of weeks nobody in Russia seemed able to produce him—in all his ample flesh—for public inspection. But now he's back, and the notion that he might have been liquidated has receded. Obviously when it wants to the Kremlin can operate a very efficient lost and Found department. If we were Malenkov, however, we wouldn't take too much heart. The Kremlin also runs a highly effective Travel department, specialing in one - way trips. And once a man embarks on one of these, it doesn't do anybody any good to ask Mr. Foster, or even Mr. Khruschev, where the final stop is. VIEWS OF OTHERS It Started At! Per Cent On every side the people are beset by high tax- M—ftnl constant demands lor new, higher tax- Take the Federal Income tax, for example. Tin first such tax was enacted in this country during the War between the States. Under stress of war the levy was pushed up to a maximum of 10 percent The people didn't like it, and the lax law went off the books soon after Lhe fighting was over. Later there was another attempt at an Income United States Supreme Court came to the rns- tax, in 1884. The rate was 2 per cent. But thfj cue of the people and ruled It unconstitutional. To get around that bar, the 10th Amendment to the Constitution was adopted to permit a graduated income tax. The rate was to be low: 1 per cant up to $20,000, 2 per cent for $20,0000 to |50,- ove half a million dollars. The personal exemption 000, upward to a top of 7 per cent on incomes ab- wa« $3,000 for a single man, $4,000 if he were married. It wns warned in debate preceding enactment of that income tax lnw if the tax were ttpproved, the rule might some day rise "as high as 10 p«r .cent]" Well, it did. It goL us high as 02 per cent. Now it goes as high M HI percent. The fellow who pays 91 percent of of his income income in not much worried about the threat of higher taxes, though. The Government cnn'1 tiike much more of his Income because pays. The "souk the rich' idea worked for a little there Isnt much left So who pays? Everybody while—until the rich got soaked. Now everybody geta .loakjid. The rnn.son behind it nil Is that the various levels of government ace trying to do too much nil dare taking too much of the taxpayers* money to finance (heir progcnm*. If we should nmvc buck toward the American system of personal responsibility and self-reliance, we might, be nbln to move bnrk toward lower taxes, Unfortunately, our degree of "welfare state" is likely to continue—mid sn will the high tnxc.s.— Chattanooga News-Free Press. Another Story Take it or leave it, sny.s Broadcasting- Telecasting mag's Closed Circuit, as it brings one inside report on why San Francisco was .selected for the IflSfi Republican national convention. It holds that Ike, at .some appropriate moment, will announce he won't run ngaln, that lie will retire to his new farm at Gettysburg. He'll thereupon twotnt Chlot Justice Warren as his choice—Warren's career began In San Francisco. Nixon, for geographical reasons, obviously would bft dropped for the vice presidential spot, with likelihood that Sen. Dirtacn. the Illinois riphtwiiiRer, would Ret the Number Two spot as representative of that faction in the party. It seems a long way to go to ditch Nixon, and we're far from convinced Eisenhower won't, be seeking re-election. But, for what its worth, there is that report.—High Point (N.C.) Enterprise.

William Wcalhersby, top - notch U. S. Public Affairs officer in Caiiri, Egypt, look the trouble to check up on criticisms of Uic voice of America programs boa mod to his part of .the world, a.s revealed in "Billions, Blunders nmi Baloney," by EuRcne W. Castle. On page 9 of this sensational new book, it was charged that the "Amid" brothers, who publish a newspaper in Cairo, had told the author that the Voice of America was no good, and that Ihc program was received in Criao early in (he morning when nobody was listening. Since Weathcrsby knew that the program camp in between and 10 p. in,, he set out to track down the "Amid" brothers, and got back this reply: "Dear Mr. Weathers by: "We were surprised that Mr. Eugene Castle in his recently published book claimed he had interviewed us about the USIA in Cairo. He not only misspelled our names but nlso misspelled our ideas. The fact is that this gentleman met us for a few in innIPS before a luncheon given by Mr. Saba Habnch in Mena House ho- tel. All that he attributed to us is- what he said himself. We disagreed with him. but he insisted he was right. He said he had come to Cairo and had visited many capitals to prove what he actually was convinced of before starting off from the States. "Will you please try to use your influence and correct this distortion of facts? "Yours sincerely, "Mostafa Amin & An" A min." Spotlighting the Upper Coloraci River war over the Echo Park dam, David F.

"We consider California the vil lain In this piece," writes Mr Brinegar, "and we believe Cali fornia is endeavoring to frustrate the construction of all major work on the river which would allow development for other states. . . However, because of UIP loose use by California of the term 'Lowe Basin,' people are led astray."

Two recent developments in this difld should be noted. One s .the .suspicion that heavy ei.u ret. sinok- hit^ over a lony period of time may be directly related to cancer of the Inns. Some are convinced that such smoking is a definite cause and others are still uncertain about It. It seems that this quest ion mny be and indeed it must be settled. j Perhaps the report of the re- j cent successful growth of normal j human lung, tissue in laboratory animals which can be exposed to ciyaret smoke will provide a method not only of answering this question^ definitely but &\so of deciding what part of the smoke, if any. is directly responsible for luntf cancer and thur permuting its removal from cigarets. • JACOBY ON BRIDGE Figure Right Play — Be an Expert ,By OSWALD JACOBf Written for XEA Service How should you play the South hnnd at four spades?

There's a press agent behind almost every love note ad that's a cue to tell you about a publicity drum beater who once worked at Warner Bros. Short on romantic cavorting' news, the p. a, invented the name of a feminine New York socialite and "dated" her in print with all the eligible males of the studio. His little game went on for weeks and finally he got around to linking the phantom cutie with George Tobias, then a big star on the lot. Next day a aild - eyed Tobias stormed into the studio publicity boss' office and let fly with a flow of adjectives worthy of Technicolor. "Look," bellowed Tobias. "Keep this doll's nane out of my publicity. She's a bum. She foes out with EVERYBODY." Pier Angeli's medics say she will havp to use crutches for an indefinite period after she gets past the wheel - chair stage. Per- taps even up to the stork date in late August.

Both thought they had their marriage problems solved until a few weeks ago. The Witnet: A Hollywood TV producer who is trying to combine a giveaway show with an amateur detective idea came up with this-unlikely title: "Ellery Queen nesse through East with your ace- nine. Is it reasonable to assume that the club honors are split? Yes, indeed. You don't care which op- ponen thas the jack and which has the queen, provided that they are split; and the chance of find- Ing the honors split is 52 per cent. This is, of course, a good enough chance to play for. You win the first heart with the king, draw two rounds of trumps, and give up a diamond. If the opponents return n heart (their best defense), you win with the ace and give up another diamond. They can take their heart trick, but then they must begin the clubs. If they lead another red card, you will ruff in dummy and discard a club from your hand. By this means you force the oppoenls to begin the clubs, and you simply play the suit on the assumption that the honors are divided. .
