Shy Man With Shaggy Hair Five minutes after the great brain of Albert Einstein was stilled, all its fabu- loui perceptions of the nature of the uni- v«r«« were erased. Luckily for the world, the greatest of these already have been •rurraved on the tablets of science. They will endure through centuries. And »o will the memory of this towering figure, whose incomparable achievements in mathematics and theoretical physcis seem sure to place him along;- lide Newton, Euclid, and other scientific gianto. Einstein thought and worked on a mental plane so high that few men could understand his more advanced theories. Yet most people, without grasping: the significance of his contribution to mankind, somehow realized that he was important. They did appreciate!, too that some of his notions of the nature of matter •nd energy led to the concept of vast energy compacted within the tiny atom, and that this theory laid the foundations for the present development of atomic energy. In this respect, though other men who followed worked out the specifics that made atomic force a practical reality, Einstein was the father of the atomic era. There was deep irony for him in this fact. He was a refugee in America from the anti-Jewish fanaticism of the Nazis. He abhorred violence and was a genuine pacifist. It pained him to see the colossal power of atomic energy turned to destructive aims. Ocassionally, small-minded men in this country, which was glad to give him refuge for more than 20 years, dared to equate his pacifism with some kind of subversion. Evidently they feared he worked an insidious influence upon younger scientists who sat at his feel. They never quite mustered the nerve to call him before some congressional committee. It is good they did not. They would only have humiliated themselves and their country. In truth America and all the free world were fortunate that Einstein chose to make this nation his refugee home. Here he was free to think without political direction or control. Here he was able to go on adding to the great pyramid of his knowledge. When Einstein, as a young man, turned from his job as a clerk in tin Swiss patent office, the world gained a scientist of heroic stature. Now its loss ii deep as this shy man with the shaggy hair, the floppy sweatshirt and shiny trousers passed from the scene at 76. His indifference to clothes symbolized his independence of material things. Hii only needs were a pen and pad. With them he could log the great explorations h« made in the realm of .the mind. And what * boundleu realm hie mind was I VIEWS OF OTHERS Linguistic Appeasement Up in WHHamsburg, Va., American Leglonnii- rea are getting a little uncomfortable about calling each other "comrade," In fact, they want to ban the term because it is Identified with "certain organizations throughout the world whose governing precept* and activities are at least Inconsistent with our ways of life and more often subversive to our established governmental system/' Whoa! That's getting the perilously clo« to appeasement—something Sen. Knowland defined in Charlotte the other day a* "surrender on the installment plan." There's absolutely no need to give up a valuable piece of linguistic real estate without a struggle just because the CommleA (that what all the gobbledygook means—Commies) like it too. Do this and we Americana will probably have to scour around and find new wordi for "democracy," "peace" and "freedom* too. Why comrade is a perfectly resvectable American term. Although its ancestry can be traced back to LJitin, it has a good clean past. Futher- niorc. It's been In the language for years, Thercs the familiar line from Whitman, for instance: I will write the evangel-poem of camrades and of love. Ban comrade? That, comrades, would be guilt by assassination. —Charlotte (N. C.) News. Equipped To Meet It A Meridian Star carrier lc credited with saving the lives of five inmates of a home he saw burning, when he delivered the afternoon paper. Well, we know little of Meridian carriers in particular, but of carriers in general, we can say this: They are alert, they are on the job. They know how to take responsibility. They are reliable. If they do not possess these qualities, they cannot hold a job, delivering papers for any publication. These boys keep their own accounts, post their own books, make their own bills and pay them. They learn to handle money when they are mere lads, and they never forget, In later years, that money is earned, and not Just handed out, They know that service is bought and paid for. All this helps them to meet life when a house bursts into blazes, or when any other critical moment arrives.—Laurel (Miss.) Leader-Call. Not Paris! The charm of aris fa its gay fredom.

Peter ft/son's Washington Column — Admiral Carney's Talk of War May Prove a Real Public Service By PETER EDSON NEA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON — (NEA) Whether or not the Chinese Communists begin their attack on the Nationalist-held off-shore islands off Matau and Quemoy this month or any time within the next 90 dnys, Adm. Robert B. Carney, U.S. Chief of Naval Operations, is believed to have performed a real public service in calling attention to the danger. Without such a wwnlng, the United States would have run the risk of another attack that would lave caught this country completely off base. It is. of course, the American tradition to let its enemies strike the first blow. The Maine has to be sunk; In Havana Harbor, the Lusitania has to be sun If by a U-boat, ;he whole Pacific fleet has to be attacked in Pearl Harbor or the Communists have 'o cross the 38th parallel . in Korea before public opinion decides It has to get ready to fight. The question may be speculative, but it Is not beyond the realm of probability to ask if the U. S. tlcet would have been concentrated in Pearl Harbor Dec. 7, 1941, if some ilgh military official had issued a loud, public warning of impenci- inp Japanese attack three veeks before? ADMIRAL CARNEY, IN HIS now famous background briefing; with a score of Washington reporters, issued such a warning with respect for Matsu and Quemoy iind even Formosa. There is now no excuse for any U. S. forces to be caught napping In this area. There has been some inclination In Washington to censure Admiral Carney for sounding this alarm. He has been accused of wanting to force the United States into a war. " Nothing was further from his mind. The admiral had just made an Inspection trip to the Formosa Straits area. He had conferred with Adm. Felix B. Stump, commander of the Pacific flee*, and Vice Adm. Alfred M. Pride, commander in the South China Sens area. He had the benefit of their latest intelligence reports. JOHN FOSTER DULLES, Secretary of State, was at the Formosan capital when Admiral Carney was there. Secretary Dulles come back and made three statements, warning of the danger of war over Formosa. The secretary softened his warnings with expressions of hope for peace, however, and they didn't get over. When Admiral Carney said it in blunter language, it registered. What made it appear like a conspiracy to involve the United States in a war with Communist China was Jhat on the weekend after Cn nicy a nd Dulles spoke out, Senators William F. Knowland of California and Styles Bridges of New Hampshire both sounded off on television programs. They took the stand that the United States could not make further retreats in the Far East without losing all of Asia. The truth of the matter is that the Doctor Says — Written for MCA Service By EDWIN P. JORDAN, M. D. Mrs. L. and Mrs. N, have recently asked far a discussion of thrombocytopenic purpura. One lias a 6-year-old son and the other a 9-yejir-old daughter who have been diagnosed as having this condition. Probably most readers of this column have never heard of pur- pura much less of throiviboeyto- )enlc purpura which is only one of several varieties. Purpura is a disease which shows itself by the formation of purple patches on the skin and mucous membranes resulting from bleeding in those ocntions. In most respects, therefore, a purpuric patch is similar o that of an ordinary bruise nnd in many who have purymra, Bruising can come more easily han in a normal person. Purpura is complicated nt best. It may develop from any one of a large number of infections such as pneumonia, meningitis or neasles. It may be present in cer- ain vitamin deficiency diseases such ns scurvy or it not infrequently follows administration of drugs to those who are sensitive o them. In some cases It is related to Malfunctioning of the spleen. In some the cause cannot be dis- "overed at all. In a more general •ay, it may be related to changes n the capillary blood vessels which allow the blood to seep hrough more easily than usual, .r to changes in the various parts ,f the blood Itself. Whenever it occurs a number if tests must be taken to find out what kind of purpunt in present, what treatment offers the best :h Alice* of improvement, and Mat the outlook is for recovery. If the condition is the result of m infection which is likely to niprove, it may be that little' leeds to be done; if it is the re- ult of taking some drug, discon- Inulng the drug may be enough o bring recovery. On the other hand, U it U the kind of puipura resulting from malfunctioning of the spleen, serious consideration will have to be given to removing that organ. In fact, in {he splenic kind of purpura removing: all of the spleen may be the answer: it is.a curious fact that the spleen which lies in the abdominal cavity, and the functions of which are not yet fully understood, can be removed not only without harmful effects, but also with great, benefit in a few conditions of which purpura is seomtimes one. Most readers will never have occasion to become personally concerned about purpura. Nevertheless,they should realize that the development of these bluish spots in the mucous membrane or on the skin are signs of something Which should involve immediate and careful investigation. neither Senator Knowland nor Senator Bridges knew in advance that the other was going on the air. Neither knew it was Admiral Carney who had issued the then-un- attrlbuted warning of Chinese Communist attack on the off-shore islands by mid-April. There had been no conferences between the two senators and either Secretary Dulles or Admiral Carney. This was no plot to force President Eisenhower's hand. FAR FROM CENSURING ADMIRAL CARNEY for his role in these proceedings, or putting a black mark on his record, events are piling up to make him look better all the time. Even if there Is no war at all, it may be Admiral Carney's warn ing that will convince the Chinese Communists of the danger of attack. And if the attack does come — this month, in the nex*. three months or In the next year — Admiral Carney will have the last laugh and be the hero. He'will be the man who was way out ahead and right. One opinion now growing in Washington is that Admiral Carney has nothing to be ashamed of and nothing to hide. As for his career as Chief oi disclosure of his identity as the source of the war-threat stories, it is recalled that Adm. Arthur "*. Radford used the same technique in fighting the B-36 several years ago. And look where he ended up— chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. • JACOBY ON BRIDGE Luck Nof Involved In This Game Hand By OSWALD JACOB1 Written for NEA Service When today's hand was played.

Now South had tc get back to nis own hand to draw the last clubs, planning to ruff the next club, but East ruffed immediately. The defenders later got two, spade trump.

It's HAPPENED! It was a hush-hush elopement, folks, and the honeymoon's already started. Home screen movies on the planning boards at Warner Bros., latest major studio to leap into TV, are new signs indicating Hollywood will go all out In dishing up free celluloid entertainment. Gone is the Movletown . fear of offending theater owners. No longer is television a whispered word. The way things are going, the major studios, I believe, eventually will turn out more film for television than for theaters, The initial Warner TV plant Include three telefilm series based on three film hits, "Casablanca,' "King's 4 How" and "Cheyenne"; a weekly hour-long show for ABC and another weekly series about aviation, "Men of the Sky." With six other major studios planning an equal amount of weekly celluloid for TV, the handwriting no longer Is on the wall. Movies for television — from Hollywood's major studio — are here to stay.

He's also re- of clubs, and South needed nothing else to assure his contract. When East returned a trump at the second trick, declarer should have drawn three rounds of trumps and should then have led the jack of clubs from his hand. West would have to cover with the queen of clubs, and dummy would take the king. The nine of clubs would then be led and passed round to West. This would establish dummy's eight of clubs as a trick. Hence declarer would discard one spade On the nine of clubs and another on the eight of clubs, losing only one of those tricks. He would eventually ruff one diamond and lose the other. Altogether, he would lose two clubs and one diamond, making his contract. Q—The bidding has been: North . East South West 1 Spade Pass 2 Clubs Pass 2 Diamonds Pass ?
