Public Patiently Awaits Action from Administration When President Eisenhower w a s asked recently to appraise his own administration thus far, he didn't duck the issue, but he didn't give a direct answer, either. What he did was try lo explain why more had not been done in the first six- months of his regime. That amounted to acknowledging he didn't believe enough had been accomplished. And he said almost that, observing that he had expected to get over a lot more ground than was covered. His real plea was for time, time to make changes, time to get a fresh, grip on the processes of government time to alter, somehow, the course of the iceberg- mass of the federal bureaucracy. In other words, he has asked the American citizenry to defer judgment, confident that greater results will flow as more time passes. The request seems reasonable. Xo political party in American history ever inherited so huge and complicated a government as the one Mr. Eisenhower took control of on Jan. 20. Its mastery is hardly a mailer of days, or even months. Obviously, however, the President does not expect judgment to be put off indefinitely. Under the American political system, all the House members and a third of the Senate must face the Voters every two years. That means 105-1. When they hit the hustings the lawmakers must have n record to talk about — their own and their President's. The two may prove to be rather inseparable in voters' minds. That leaves a lot of heavy work to be achieved next year before fall campaigning. Some astute observers have pointed out that an administration and a Congress need not be measured simply by the volume of laws passed, as if there were some automatic virtue in the constant enactment of more legislation. There is something to be said for just cairying out well the laws already on the books, if they meet the problems arising. Rut in these trying days it is seldom thai: two years tun pass without need of some new major legislation. Mr. Eisenhower has plainly recognized that need by naming commissions to study such matters as future farm policy, foreign trade and tariffs, further government reorganization. Tax reduction and new labor legislation are other issues calling for early attention. Action will have to'follow in 195-1 if the study is not to seem an empty gesture. Burdensome as the load will he, the lawmakers really ought to welcome it. They need something they can put a label on nnd say: "This is ours." It should bo possible, in a reasonable society, for politicians to go to Hie voters and declare: -'We in our party have done n good job for you, even though it doesn't show in laws passed, or in the headlines." Bui the reqiiiremcnls of n.odeni- day political performance in America do not permit it. Evidently the cilizens are willing to give the President time to make bis case. Rut we can hardly doiibl that they are watching with eagerness for real results. Views of Others Raise for Congress?

Some patients who drink a lot, of fluids find ihat an attack comes on a fo\v hours afterwards, probably because of the inmM.sed ac- eumulation of fluid in tin 1 labyrinth. This has given a cluti leading to the use of some forms of treatment aimed at cutting down Ihe intake of fluids or removing excess fluids from the body.

Roosevelt Jr's. bill to authorize the Army Corps of Engineers to do the work, and Rep. Frank J. Becker's proposal to let the New York State Power Authority do the job. So now the project is before the Senate. Here Sen. Herbert Lehman of New York supports federal government development. Sen. Homer Capehart of Indiana supports the House-passed Miller-Dondero bill bill for private enterprise development. And Sen, Irving M. Ives of New York supports his state's Power Authority plans. The fact that the Congress itself is making this decision, instead of the Federal Power Commission which was created by Congress in 192Q to decide these things, is due to a legislative fluke. FPC, early in July, announced it would issue a license to New York Power Authority to develop the St. Lawrence power projects. But in 1950, when the U. S. Senate ratified the treaty with Canada on. joint St. Lawrence development, a rider was attached. It specified that "no project for the develop- .ment of such waters shall be undertaken until it can be specifically authorized by Act of Congress." That cut FPC right out of the picture. If the Senate now passes the House-passed Dondero-Miller bill giving the license for Niagara development to the five companies, Governor Dewey has indicated he will challenge the constitutionality of the act. vious that South still had a heart and would therefore be able to run the rest of dummy's long suit later on. After some thought, therefore, East refused the trick. It was clear that East held the ace of clubs and that he would hold it to kill dummy's king of clubs. Since there was no Kide entry to the hearts, declarer de- 0JACOBY Score All You Can In Any Tourney liy OSWALD JAC'ORY Written for MCA Service The poini 01 today's hand would be comparatively unimportant at rubber bridge. North would probably play the hand at a contract of four hearts, losing a spade, a heart and a club. In n tournament, however, it is important to score tJie maximum on every hand. Hence you sometimes play a hand in no-trump even when you have a fine major suit just, because the score for ft no-trump contract counts 10 points more than for the same number of tricks at n major suit. Today's hand is a case in point. South even opened the bidding with one no-trump despite the rather shabby heart holding in order to have the best possible chance to get into a no-trump contract eventually . West opened the four of spades, and dummv won the first trick, with (lie jack. Declarer led a low club from dummy. East played low, and South won in his own hand with the queen. South now made a key play by lending the queen o( hearts from his own hand. West followed with the singleton jack, nnd dummy played low.

South led a low club, West followed with the ten, nnd dummy's king drove out the ace. East returned a spade, nnd now declarer cashed the ace of spades, the top diamonds, and his two remaining clubs. By this time South had taken in nine tricks and he could afford to cash dummy's nee of hearts as a 10th trick. This alone would outscore those pnlrs who plnyed the hand at lour hearts instend of four no-trump. An extra dividend developed, however. By the time South had run nil of his tricks, Enst hod only hearts left In his'hnnd. After dummy took the nee of hearts, the ten of hearts forced out East's king, and Enst was obliged to return n heart to dummy. Declarer therefore mnde 11 tricks at no-trump, for a very fine score. Erskine Johnson. IN HOLLYWOOD Male fashion note: Errol Flynn relaunching the turtle-neck sweater, pinstriped VERTICALLY. Busty, blonde Cleo Moore is going to be far happier about her acting career if pictures like "The Moon Is Blue" bring about changes in movie censorship. Like Jane Russell, Cleo has problems. "The censors give me n terrible lime," she told me on the set of "Bait." "If a girl in Hollywood is busty the censors want you to cover up and minimize. But if a jr»rl is Hat-' chested, the censors will let her wear falsies that stick way out. Can you explain that? I can't." HOPES PUBLIC FORGETS Fernando Lamas is hoping the public gradually will forget that MGM first beat the drums for him as a young Ezio Pinza. His new adujsted contract with the studio carries with it an understanding that he can swashbuc- kle to his heart's content on the screen instead of singing as he did in "Rich, Young and Pretty" and "The Merry Widow." "I was never a singer in the first place. It was silly to try to make me one, because I don't cnr about it." Now working in "Last Treasure of the Amazon'' «t Paramount, Lamas says he may have to sing' little in "Rose Marie" but: "I don't want to be sold as a singer." Ida Lupino is back to emoting again, in "The Bigamist," which she's also directing. But she's blinking wonderingly at people who comment that they thought she would retire from make-up after the rave notices for her direction' of "The Hitch-Hiker." There's many a performance left in Ida, she insists. "Only I want to play a bad woman again as I did in 'They Drive by Night' and 'Ladies in Retirement.' "Playing the distraught woman who's about to be murdered by the liired man is not for me. The worse the woman, the better. It's an awful chore for me to wear a despairing look." ROSIE DOESN'T TICK Fan magazines planning to ask Gene Barry for notes on a story titled, "What Makes Rosemary Clooney Tick?" are out of luck. Rosemary's costar in "Red Garters" is plump mystified by Rosie's icy demeanor. Gene says he was getting along fine with Rosemary "until we had to do a scene in which I carry her down a ramp. It was a complicated piece of business, tough to time, and on the seventh take I fell with her. Two days later she refused to talk to me. What steamed things up after the fall, I don't know. My wife and I had been invited to her home the Sunday before. She's the greatest singing talent I know. I admire the Sign in a bar near Paramount studios: t "A bartender is the only psychi- i atrist who works in an apron." , Mona Freeman left Paramount ^ i when newcomers like Audrey Hep-* I burn were given the grownup, sophisticated roles she yearned for. But she admits failure so far in latching on to mature parts. "But I don't care much," she confessed. "If it happens—fine." The "Dear Brat" girl hasn't made many films under her new RKO contract, but she has definite ideas about foolish stars who play in indifferent pictures just to keep" in the public eye. As Mona says, "That's suicide these days. You have to pick and choose if you are going to stay in the film industry. You have to be positive it's a good picture. If it's not the best, nobody's going to see it." Suggestion for tightwads too cheap to take their girl friends to see Cinerama: Take 'cm on roller coaster rides instead.
