Princess Should Be Free to Wed Man of Her Choice Most Americans probably will rtact happily to the news that one obstacle in the path of Princess Margaret's happiness is about to be removed, though this by no means yet assures her the chance to marry the man who evidently is her choice. The stumbling block is a law that would make Margaret regent if Queen Elizabeth 11 died before Prince Charles, now four, was able to assume tht throne. Indications are that that law will now be changed, w i t h Margaret's responsibilities as regent presumably shifted to the Queen's husband, the Duke of Edinburgh. Margaret is reported in love with Capt. Peter Townsend, RAF hero now British air attache at the embassy in Brussels. But he is divorced, and the ruling Church of England disapproves the remarriage of any divorctd persons. No member of the royal family could serve even briefly as ruler if married lo a divorced individual. In Margaret's case, a change in the regency law will not end her troubles. She is 22, and until she is 25 she cannot marry anyone without her sister's consent. Since the Queen is sworn to uphold the tenets of the church, it is not easy to see how she can authorize Margaret's marriage to Townsend even if she is not to be regent-designate. The dilemma must sadden many ordinary family folk, for the rule seems to be working undue hardship upon the Princess. Townsend is the offender) party in his divorce, so no blame may be fairly placed against him. When Acting Prime Minister Butler announced the government's intention to seek a change in the law, he referred to the "deplorable speculation and gossip" that have attended public discussion of Margaret's romance. Undoubtedly he was speaking accurately. Yet evidence is strong that the popular interest was rooted not in a desire for cheap gossip material, but in deep sympathy for a handsome girl who might be trapped in the cruel loneliness of royalty. In Britain, in the Commonwealth, in many parts of the globe, there w a s rejoicing when Elizabeth, who fared a much surer burden of duty, found so suitable a life companion as Philip. For her sister, Margaret, people must certainly wish as much personal hap- pinesn. With dignity and devotion she haa wrved her country well, in th« royal tradition. Shfe ought to be entitled to live now according to tho dictates of her We Want to Help It's n constant miracle that din phony Russian legend of Inimanitariaiiism ciin survive tlio Kremlin's own endless assaults upon the fantasy. Obviously the Big Fraud dies hnrd. Some time a#o ('resident Eisenhower made a generous offer of food for the hungry folk of Knsl Germnny. 'Die Russians flatly rejected it, with Foreign Minister Molotov remarking that America was "misinformed" about Ihf; need. Apparently the stomachs of Kast Germans were otherwise informed, for Russia found it necessary some two weeks later to do something about the shortages. In a rather painful reversal, the Soviet Union agreed to ship in some badly needed foodstuffs. Characteristically, however, the Kremlin attached some conditions to its offer. To ours there were no strings, but Russia likes to make charity a paying proposition. Moscow is demanding that Kast Germany pay for the food received !>y shipping some .$57 million worth of manufactured goods to Russia. Everybody ought to recognize this frow/.y deal for what it is, but there are probably still some baffled citizens around the globe who will mark it. as real Communist concern for humanity. Some go on believing the myth until they get a bullet in the stomach instead of a meal. Mr. Eisenhower sensibly intends to go on making food available to East Germans by whatever moans wt can get it to them. We really want to help, and we want the world to understand who it is that has the genuine humanitarian impulses.

"Ah May I Issue a Word of Warning, Gentlemen?" Peter ft/son's Washington Column- Signing of Armistice Hatches New Brood of Troubles for U.S. WASHINGTON — (NEA) — Signing of n Korean armistice will hatch ti now brood of troubles for the United States. All of them will nest in the "pt>1 i t i c a I conference," which must be called within 90 days after the Korean cease-fire agreement goes into effect. That should put It some time before Nov. 1. Prter ficlson Nobody knows where it will be -held, who will attend, or what will be discussed. Nobody knows whether the confer- nce will be limited to writing a permanent peace for Korea or whether the conference will be limited to writing a pcrmenent peace for Korea or whether an attempt will be made to solve other current issues of the Orient. When Secretary of State John Foster Dulles told his press conference that admission of Red China to the United Nations would not be ft proper subject for discussion at this political conference, it was the first guidance many of his own si tiff officers had had on the subject. The general attitude In the State Department poems to have been along the line of "Let's get the j armistice signed first, then worry ft bout the next .step later." Secretary Dulles did specify that | the United States and the Republic ', of Korea would attend the conference find ho assumed North Korea, Red China and possibly the Soviet Union would also send n delegation, but no particular thought hud been Riven to its composition, said Mr. Dulles. One Reason For Lack One reason for the lack of planning is that former Assistant Secretary of State John D. Hiekeraon, In charge of United Nations affairs, has left for his new assignment at the War College. Robert D. Murphy, who Is to succeed Hlckerson as Assistant Secretary for UN, has been kept at his present post as Ambassador to Japan. When Murphy arrives In Washington his first and biggest problem will be what to do about this political conference. A good bit will depend on what the United Nations General Assembly decides to do. The Korean was has been officially a United Nations affair, and the UN will want a voice In its settlement. UN General Assembly President Lester B. Pearson of Canada and Secretary General Dog Hrunmar- skjold of Sweden have been holding back on calling the Assembly into session, feeling it could do little to help the armistice negotiations. But other countries like India want the Assembly called together us soon as possible to consider post-armistice problems. When the Assemtly does meet, troublestill begin to multiply like rabbits. If all problems of the Far East aro to be discussed, countries like Indonsia and India and Burma—which haven't contributed a single fighting,man to the UN w;ir —will want a voice in the negotia- tions. What this complicating (actor the -subject of Korean peace alone, points to is the advisability of con- if the United States can steer H fining the political conference to that way. When Conference Meets When the political conference finally meets, however, It can be assumed the Communists will present demands for a UN seat for Red China and an end of the UN restrictions on trade with China, In a general conference, with many nations represented, both these concessions might be granted. Britain, France, India, Japan, even some business elements in the United States, want to resume full trade with China. Many United Nations countries hold the view that since the Communists do now actually control the China . mainland, the Red government should be recognized, Red China might even give up North Korea, clear to the Yalu, in exchn nge for this recognition. The reasons are fairly simple; First, it would give Red China an opportunity to build up Its war- torn economy. Second, it would give the Communists freedom to step up their conquest of Southeast Asia. Third, any time the Communists had absorbed Southeast Asia, they could again move against Korea. For all these reasons, the out- j look for the political conference ' that must follow the Korean ar- I mistice signing is anything but I bright. the Doctor Says— By EDWIN P. JORDAN. M.D Written (or NEA Service There Is i> vigorous debate on whether smoking Is harmful and in what way, but no one chums that it strengthens the muscles, improves the "wind" or does anything else to improve the health. Nicotine has generally been considered the principal ingredient of tobacco smoke which may exert an unfavorable effect. Tin's or other elements in tobacco may also be undesirable. As a pure drug, nicotine is a powerful poison, When burned as it is in smoking, tho harmful effect of the nicotine is certainly lessened. Purth- rniore. of the nicotine which en- tqrs the smoker's mouth, only a .small amoung is absorbed through the Unings of the mouth, throat and lungs into the blood. The amount of nicotine in the ;moke is increased by rapid smoking. The nicotine, which is absorbed is clmnatcd quickly through the kidneys. Tobacco smoke irritates the rie- Icate mucous linings of the breathing passages. Coated tongue in heavy smokers Is the rule. The throat, and larynx, or voice box, irrlwted by heavy smoking and smokers frequently have il slight cough and hoarseness. There is some evidence that clg- aret smokers show an increased likelihood of developing lung can- err and I know of .several doctors who havfi given up smoking for this reason. Smoking interferes with (he appetite, The person who stops heavy .smoking suddenly tends to gnin weight merely because he eats more. People with ulcers of the stomach are often ndvised not to .smoke. Smoking increases the acid secretions of the stomach and lends lo slow the healing of an ulcer, some people believe. Mtiny .smokers complain of cold hnnris and feet This is probnblv because the nicotine absorbed oma of the small blood vessels to contract and, therefore, to carry less warming blood to these regions. In some people the tightening of the blood vessels Is so great after smoking that a temporary increase in blood pressure is produced. Those who have definite blood vessel disease such as Eucrger's disease. Raynaud's disease, angina pectoris, and those who have had a coronary occlusion should refrain from smoking. Other people whose blood vessels respond unfavorably to smoking should consider giving up the habit. Interferes with Athlete There is little doubt that excessive smoking interferes with athletic performance. Shortness o f breath on exertion after smoking is usual. Athletes in training are not supposed to smoke during the period of their competition.. Does smoking shorten life? This is highly debatable. One study of this subject came to the conclusion that in men, at least, smokers after the age cf 40 have a lower average expectation of life than do nonsmokers. Different people are affected differently by tobacco .smoking. Those who show definitely unfavorable effects or have diseases in which tobacco smoking is pretty well known to be harmful should give up the habit. Others may feeS Hint the pleasure of smoking is worth any possible harm. • JACOBY ON BRIDGE Shows Ingenuity In Losing Game By OSWALD JACOBY Written for NEA Service There must be about two dozen ways to make three no-trump in today's hand.

Sterling Hayden and hfs wife, Betty, are now completely reconciled but another movie couple, Shelley Winters and Vittorio Gassman, are skating on thin matrimonial ice. They've decided the odds are against their marriage surviving and a divorce announcement is due. Two movie agents met and the first raved about the commissions pouring in now that 3-D had arrived.

South's last two cards were the ace and Jack of hearts, but West likewise saved two hearts and won the setting trick with his queen of hearts. South complained about unfortunate guesses and pointed out that all of the finesses had failed. This Was a case of a poor excuse being better than none, since It was simple to assure the contract against any defense. South began correctly by taking the ace of clubs, leading to the king of hearts, and cashing the top clubs. After doing all of this, declarer should have continued with a low club. West could win this trick, of course, but would then have to return to a different suit. Any return at all would give declarer a free finesse making him a present of the ninth trick.
