Stupid Charge Th« Reds will never win the Battle of Bandung with the kind of propaganda txcesseg. reflected in their wild charges of "American sabotage," after the crash of an Indian plane bearing Peiping's underling! to Indonesia. Investigation of this accident will go forward, as it should. It is customary, however, to wait until completion of an inquiry before announcing findings. The Chinese Reds didn't even wait for the sketchiest preliminary report before jumping on the "sabotage" theme. Even India's Prime-Minister Nehru, whose search for a neutral course often leads him down some strange byways, declared that the crash in the South China Sea had some "very unusual features." This is pure, unfounded guesswork, since he could not have known any significant details when he made (he comment. The government at Hong Kong, the plane's last stop, said the Air India craft was under heavy guard during its one- hour pause, and that fuel and baggage loading were handled by the Communists »nd the Indian crew. No one else went aboard and no item of cargo was taken on that was not checked by the Reds and ( the crew. Therefore the chances of sabotage by anybody would seem very remote. A moment's thought would convince any sensible person that sabotaging part of the Chinese delegation to Bandung is no way to win a propaganda war, anyway. The Red charges presume vast stupidity on America's part. In truth it is the Communists who are being stupid. The Moscow-Peiping axis has heard for years that Communists make wonderful propaganda, that they can't be matched. Evidently they believe it. Evidently they think they can toss out any weird tale and it will score somewhere among the world's gullible millions. There are signs, too that in the particular case of the Afro-Asian meeting at Bandung they are frantic to register a propaganda triumph, in their peculiar world they imagine their far-fetched version of the plane crash will help. Thay should take a lesson from the recent Communist experiences in far-off Italy. Ever since the war, northern Italy, especially cities like Mila nand Livorono, has been a Communist stronghold. But respected correspondents have found the Red tide ebbing where it should be strongest. The Communists have suffered losses in factory union elections. Many other •vidences of diminishing power can b* found. Tht observers report that large number* of Italians who once were Red •apecially cities like Milan and Livorono, lusioned with Communist tactics. End- ]«u political strikes, hosts of unfilled promises and senseless propaganda have contributed to this attitude. This it * big story. It is a proof that the Red magic .is not perpetually «ffeo- tive even where it seems to have fastened its greatest grip. It shows that peoples not trapped behind the Iron and Bamboo Curtains can in time detect the sham of communism and turn from it. Excesses like the frenzied plane sabotage charge might help a lot of Asians and Africans to see the sham before they ever think seriously of embracing it. Next, Mental Illness When Dr. Jonas Salk and two other scientists associated with Ahe remarkable polio vaccine story were asked what broad front medical science should next attack, they all three said the field of mental illness. Not cancer, not heart disease, still the great killers, but mental illness, the great disabler. Half the available hospital beds in this country are occupied today by mental and emotional disturbances are so commonplace that they must be set down as among the more tragic marks of this complex civilization. The problem certainly is not wholly a medical one. Many could ,be saved from emotional crippling if this civilization of ours was doing a better job of building and preserving family and other human relationships. We must find a way to reduce the confusion and instability which puts so terrible a strain on many people and makes their adjustment to life so difficult. VIEWS OF OTHERS Horse Trading We appreciate the efforts of both elected and §elf appointed lender* to imooth out contemporary trouble*. But when people refuse to drew warmly enough in the winter Mine; to get up curly enough to start a day unhurriedly; when parents have to Attend too-long PTA meetings; and all cook* won't put a 11 U.le cheese under top crust of an apple pie a person who put* first things first knows that our economic and social order'la struggling under handicaps. Half a century ago solid citizens matched wtU In horw trades. The principles that governed the transactions were the ones that helped build our nation. Up and coming dwellers would not understand the rules that operated during a horse trade. The amenities were always observed, whether professional or advanced amateur* were engaged In the pastime. Before getting down to business, two men discussed the weather crop prospects, state and niUSonal politics and the abominable condition of the roads. A farmer Was never really Interested in trading. He had thought of U, but not seriously of course. Old Jerry was still a good horse. Still, If Farmer Jim was Interested in swapping off hi* oW Nell, pcrhftps with enough cash to boot, a man might let old Jerry go. Hate to do It, of course, for old Jerry wa.s the best horse a man ever hat?. Steady, willing worker, teeth still good, What's that? Yes, probably a trifle tender In his left rear foot, but nothing serious. Crib chewer? Only occasionally; down't amount to anything. Age? Possibly la or 13, but still good lor years of hard work. , Horse trading Is an ancient and reasonably honorable art—but at least, men went at It with their eyes open and full knowledge of psslble consequences. Perhaps If our government saw fit to train a few men In the art of horse trading, it would have a salubrious effect on this world of closer- fitting bonds.—Mattoon (HI.) Journal-Gazette. Ducktails Barbers In Blrmlnphflm, Ala., may be setting A bad precedent by raising the price of the "flat top or ducktail" hnircxit. They based their decision on the fact that these time-cconsuming teen-age hair stylos are "something like three haircuts rolled into one.' But a two-price system can easily grow into a three-price system—ducktail, regular and almoat bald, it would be hard to convince the man with the shining pate that he must continue paying the full price because his hair is "harder to find." A better solution might be to send thr ducktail someplace where they could get their hair "styled." The ladies probably wouldn't even notice the Intrusion.—Florida Times-Union. SO THEY SAY I have Just learned of Senator Neely's attack on President Eisenhower. I hope thla attack will not discourage him from further churchjolng.—Billy Graham. '* * n« Rome ol the tennis amateuri would be foolish to turn pro. There have been instances of top players getting tioo a week. You can't beat that.—Cms- lie Moran. * * * You and I wilt live many lone days and many long night* before we meet the equal of Robert B. Stewart. * * * We have reached the point In Asia where we can't yield without loilnj the whole thing.—Rep. Waller H. Judd (H., Minn.). * * * If he'i (Jackie Roblmon) got any complaint he ought to come and tee me liutead of going to the prcu.—Walt Alston, Brooklyn manlier. Mine Field Peter Edson's Washington Column— National Planning Association Blasts Handling of Technical CA WASHINGTON— (NBA) A blistering attack on the way the U. S. "Point Four" Technical Cooperation Administration — TCA — la pnrtlcularly timely. The Foreign Operations Administration under Gov. Harold Stassen, which has been responsible for TCA the past two years, Is due to go out of business June 30. Unless drastic action is taken within the next few months, many U. S. technical assistance pro- rams in .some 50 underdeveloped foreign countries may also come to an end. Technical nssfstanct; to foreign countries is frequently considered part of inlllhiry aid, economic aid, loans and grants to undeveloped ureas. TCA is entirely separate from such programs. H involves the .shnrliiK of knowledge and technical skills — the sending of American experts to the backward countries to help them raise their own standard of living, often at their own expense. In to the multl - dlllion foreign aid programs, TCA $107 million In 1954, $11G million this year. It is considered almost Impassible to spend any more on It, or any faster, because experts can't be recruited for more projects. Today there are 360 vacancies for Latin-American alone, out of a total authorized stuff of 800. "The government of the United States has been changing Its mind about the answers so frequently," says the NPA criticisms, that we are "baffling and confusing the foreign governments with whom we wish to cooperate." The NPA report lambaste both the Truman and Elsenhower administrations. "When the TCA program was administered by the State Department from 1950 to 1953 it was severely shackled and could not operate effectively." As a, classic example of how technical cooperation has been kicked around in the present administration, it is revealed that the Foreign Opera tions Administration and the State Department took from July to December, 1054, to allocate $175,000 for Latin - American projects. By this time the fiscal year was half over and the work was set back that much. With FOA apparently doomed to die this June 30, It Is now proposed to transfer TCA back to the State Department. This Is In spite of the fact that Secretary of State John Foster Dulles has said repeatedly that he does not want operating responsibilities in his department. Talcing advantage of this opening, the National Planning. Association recommends several proposals for getting the train back on the track. Oneproposal Is to organize the entire program aft a government corporation. This would permit the organization to run its own show, making quick decisions for action programs free from Inter - departmental red tape tangles. This would 1» in line with the experience gained by the Institute of Inter-American Affairs. IIAA was organized during the war by the Nelson Rockefeller group to deal with internal agricultural, health and education developments In Latin-America. Congress recently extended the IIAA charter as a government corporation until 1960. It has worked effectively while EGA. MSA and FOA have successively had their troubles. Willie the Initial technical assistance pioneering was in Latin America, It has been extended all over the free world. In the last few years major emphasis has been on Middle East development. For the immediate future, the Eisenhower administration would apparently like to make a major effort in Southeast Asia, to save it from communism. Congress will have this whole problem tossed in Its lap soon, when the White House sends to Congress Its recommendations for the foreign aid program for next year.

South finessed dummy's ten of clubs, content to lose the trick and to get the expected heart return up to dummy's void. East didn't, however, oblige him with a heart return. East knew that his partner had made a desperation opening lead, and thla made It seem pro- able that West had nothing worth speaking of in hearts or spades. East therefore decided, to try to keep South from ever gaining the lead. In pursuance of this aim, East returned a low diamond. Dummy had to win, and declarer ran his six diamond tricks for lack of anything better to do. The defenders discarded hearts without much trouble. South next took the ace of spades and led another spade towards his hand. West won with the Jack of spades and casually returned another low club.

I understand Marilyn's rebellion — not all of It, but some of it. You aren't taken seriously unless you get out of the dumb blonde parts." The lingy doll was signed by U-I a couple of years ago as the studio's answer to Marilyn Monroe. But Mamie admits: "I took all the hoopla about me with a grain of salt. But now I'm beginning to believe I'll get somewhere." Tyrone Power has purchased a new play, "A Quiet Place," for production early next fall. It was the Hth coin in the fountain that won Tunesmlth Sammy Calm an Oscar for "Three Coins in the Fountain." During the last 10 years he's been nominated 10 times — and lost 10 times. "Who minds being typed? It's wonderful!" Rita Moreno, the fiery one, talking out loud about her career progress on the set of Paramount's "The Vagabond King," in which she plays the Huguette role created by Lillian Roth. "Let's face It," Rita said. "I'm not the All - American girl. If they want to make me a spitfire — that's great! As long as the good roles come along." Her clicks in "Garden of Evil" and "Untamed" picked her up at a low career point,. she admits. "I'd made three films in a row at MOM and after that nine months passed before I could get a part. The inactivity almost killed me." With a star on his MOM dressing room door at last, handsome, rugged Jeff Richards is, admitting he almost 'valked out of the acting game a short time ago through sheer discouragement. Jeff got his first starring chance in "The Marauders" and now he's the star of "Bar Sinister," but: "Before that I was depressed and discouraged, Several times I was ready to walk out of my contract. Now that I look back, I see how unready I was. If the studio had let me rab the big roles, as I wanted to. I might have stumbled through them and killed myself as an actor. "Now I know why they held me back until I was ready. Actors sire too darned Impatient." Shelley Winters plays what she refers to as "a call girl who got nine, and he happened to guess wrong.

There's .always been Hollywood opposition to "The Big Knife," since the Clifford Odets play about Hollywod was produced on Broadway. But Shelley says "It's not anti-Hollywood" in Its screenplay form. "I think it's a very truthful and intelligent analysis of Hollywood," she said. "It's no rougher than •The Bad and the Beautiful' — if that rough." Dick Foran, the film star who moved to New Yogk In 1950 when he decided television was for him, is back in movietown beaming over his "whole new career." He won the Critics Award on Studio One's 1951 presentation of "The Loud Red Patrick" and since appearing on 200 other live shows he's convinced TV is career insurance because there's no type casting. Says the red • topped Irishman: "When you're under contract in Hollywood you come in and play the same guy every day. It's great for a while — until audiences get sick of you. Then you're out. In television, you can be a different guy every day."
