' ' Whose Opinion? ^fter an interval of comparative silence, Henry A. Wallace delivered his latest opinion of the Marshall plan th<: ^ other' 'day. He delivered it to a reporter of the official Yugoslav news agency in New York, but the news story appeared under a. Belgrade dateline. This was not inappropriate, since Mr. Wallace's cuvreHt estimate of the Marshall , ..plan sounds much liko other oinions ol nit. originating in Belgrade and points east, i V ' We seem to recall that the former vice president favored the plan \vlien it first was proposed. But that, 'pcr- Jiaps by coincidence, was before Rus:• .sia decided to stay out. Now he ttelis 'the Yugoslav press, as the Mopcow propagandists have told the world, that ^ie believes "the Marshall pian delayed • •vlin; economic depression in the United .States." Mr. Wallace also said that he was Against : the Marshall plan if "it divided the world in two parts" and "if the primary aim is to revive Germany Jor the purpose of waging a struggle .against Russia." Pravda couldn't have £ put it any better. ' v " i It wondered ... whether Mr- Wallace would give any. credit for helping divide, the world in two parts t<. Mr. Molotoy for walking out of the Paris conference. Perhaps lie thinks that the Russian foreign minister was enticed to Paris as part of a new im. peruibst plot against the Soviet Union and that he just managed to escape' before the trap was sprung. Mr. Wallace's thinking may appeal . Jo waver and vary, but he ( | 0 e s seom to cling to one constant, concrete lino f.of thought. That is his apparent ob.. ^sswii with the idea that now Mr Roosevelt is gone and Mr. Wallace himself . „ out of the government, there ofh° T- ^^ Washin ^« capabl-, ot handling , things. One _can only gather from 1m speeches that he thinks the h gh oniy r. Truman of courl- tfirough aid lo Greece and Turkey, w hen by indirection ^.Marshall , c insultin *: unwarranted. them, we believ indictments • And when that M » »* the ridiculouB, dangerous output oj Soviet propaganda. Mr- Wallace has apiwintcd himsell' the sole guardian of the New Deal heritage and of Roosevelt liberalism. He has clothed himself in brilliant trappings and attracted a considerable following. He has given the impression that. Mr. Roosevelt, were he alive today, would feel about Russia precisely as Mr. Wallace doees. That is obviously a personal assumption and nothing more. By his present line of talk Mr. Wallace is not aiding the cause of peace. He is injuring it by creating the fiction abroad that he is the .spokesman for a large block of American opinion. Mr. Wallace is entitled to his own obsessions and opinions, and to the right to express .them. But it would seem that the time has now come when his admirers have the right io question whether those obsessions and opinions arc his own, or whether they are patterned after some which are not only un-American, but anti-American. SO THEY 5AY Allies in a Serious War Man's worst enemies, next to his own kind, have been the tiny form of life rather than the big ones. He has had no great trouble In getting rid of the savayc nnnnnls wherever he we:U. But he is still fighting the Insect'swarms that prey on him, his crops and his livestock—and still losing heavily to those unyielding Iocs. The vast numbers of insects, nnd their Icr- rlllc rate ot increase, make them n grave problem. Somebody has figured out that 0113 acre of meadow harbors at least 15 million insects. This will sound like an undcr-csllmatc to uny- body who has strolled through a mention- in chigger or mosquito season. Nature set a check on Insects in the birds. But hasn't properly appreciated the usefulness of these allies. He has allowed cats to hunt them down, and youngsters to kill them • (or sport. New poisons, like DDT, are proving elfectivo against the Insect hosts. But we still need the birds. Every harmless bird destroyed means- thousands of insects saved. We owe the birds better protection. They work l»r us constantly, and at the same time make our outdoors far pleasantcr with their bright, cheerful little lives —ARKANSAS DEMOCRAT.

Must U.S. Fight Another War? Is Predominant Issue Uppermost In Minds Of Congressmen (This Is the fourth of five dispatches reviewing the accomplishments of Congress during this session.} By PETER EDSON NEA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON, July 31. ONBA) —The one biggest issue before the Congress Just closed and in the session ahead Is whether the United States must fight anothei war. Everything else is Insignificant beside that. It Is also the biggest Issue on the president's desk, in the state Department, and before the •.•American people. As Chairman Charles A! -Eaton of the H-iusc Porelpn Affairs Coinn>'iS Ve remarked; tV, "shooti.i-; •.»••.:" may already be on. It :s entirely possible that World Wn.- Ill has ilready begun — In the border :lashes In Greece, in China's civil i'ar, in the Dutch-Indonesian fighting, and In the armed truces under which Russian and Allied forces face each other across the 38th parallel In Korea anrl the occupation zone boundaries in Germany and Austria. The first mid second world wars began, over Incidents and differences far less serious than these. This is not a pleasant prospect. But It needs to be faced. There Is general agreement that when and if war comes. It will be Russia and her satellites against the world. What the line-up would be can be guessed. Bui the Important consideration is that tevcry country In the world is so weakened from the last war that it would be more of a burden to support, as an ally, than to be overrun, as an enemy. 1'ItOULEMS OF WAR AND I'EAUE Where this war would oe fought, or how, Ls debatable. Any Idea that the Untied States coultf drop a jew bombs on Moscow antl end the war in u week is nonsense. Even if victory could be won that easily, there would remain the problem ot occupation. As the United States has discovered in Germany, the reform and reorganization of a conquered nation takes longer than the defeat. While the Axis was defeated in the last war, io is apparent only •Apw.-tliat.-.nobiily reajly.won it. The (Wbllary to (hat is that nobody .cottld win in the next war, either. Facing that gloomy prospect, it may be said there are tour ways to maintain the peace: Appeasement — giving Russia whatever she wants on the theory that any sacrifice is cheaper than war; imposing V.ic will ol the United States On' Soviet Russia — by economic force it necessary; by dividing tl'.e world into v.vo spheres of influence — 'communist and non-communist; or by lony. exhausting and canipir,- mise negotiations to arrve at, n satisfactory basis of co-peration in one world. This last was the Byrnes policy. But endless arguing did not brins the desired results. It was the old philosopher's riddle of l.hc immovable object—Russia — meeting the irresistible force — the United States. That led to the Marsha] 1 , plan, which, at the present moment, seems headed toward the creation of two world.-, instead of one. This Is the third of the alternative Policies listed above. The question is whether this is n step towards peace or war. While it Is tli e President and his Secretary of State who traditionally make American foreign policy, It is the congress which' must give it authority, finance it. ratify it. It is still a bi-partisan policy. But i the record of th e Congress just closed has been haltingly but de- I finitely toward the creation of two worlds. JJHUI.T NEW TRADE BARRIERS Congress showed no enthusiasm for the International Trade Organ-, ization now being discussed at Geneva, nor for the trade program Intended to free commerce from artificial barriers. Instead Congress acted to build new barriers. It authorized^ the Truman plan for aid to Greece and Turkey. It allowed UNRRA to die and limited future relief to friendly, co-operating countries. It balked on the admission of 4DO,000 refugees It cut funds to spread U. S. information and improve cultural relations with foreign countries. The real showdown test on the Marshall plan is still to come. That will be in the next session of Congress, after the Western European nations make known their needs as a follow-up to the Paris Conference. If Congress is really tough-minded and ready for a showdown wli-li Soviet Russia, It "has shown r» great inclination to back up such a foreign policy with military s\m- port. A look at that side of thi: matter will be taken in the next and last dispatch in this series. IN HOLLYWOOD (While Ersktne Johnson is on vacation, outstanding Hollywood personalities are pinch-hitting for him.) • • * BY HOIVARK PHILRRICK Manager, Hollywood Central Casting Bureau HOLLYWOOD. July 31. (NE,Vi Every state in the Union, every civilized country, every walk o! life, every age. type, ntid social stratum is represented hi Hollywood's 5COO registered extra play's. Before the registration hy Central Casting, every physical characteristic of each applicant is made matter ot record, every talent noted, the minutest distinguishing' details tabu'.atcci. If a studio calls for a collcsuilc- type man, with a neck measurement of 15, a 35-inch arm. black eyes, red hair, who speaks Danish and can tap dance, it's just another order to us. The operation is simple. 'Registered extras 'telephone every 30 minutes, up to 4 p.m.. and then every 15 minutes. The answer. 'No work." indicates that Centra! has no orders from studios to be lil'ed. The answer, "Call later." js the hopclul indlcition that there <*re studio orders. LOUD SPEAKER SYSTEM 'When casting is actively in progress in the late afternoon, the switchboard operators, whose mouth-pieces are re.illy small microphones, repeat the names of the extras who call. The casting directors hear these nan-^s through small loud speakers on their desks. It he hears 'the name of an extra who meets the requirements of an order, the casting director presses & button, cutting out the switchboard, aurt tnlk-i directly to the These calls come In through 70 trunk linrs. on a five-position switchboard. There is only one other of its kind—at the (Pentagon Bui'ciing in Washington. At the .peak of activity hi the late alter- liooii. the Central board handles about 3:00 rails an hour. There is one thing that even the most thorough casting organization finds difficult lo take. Thai is the disappointment and heartbreak inherent in the entire extra situation. 'After all. while 2(10.000 extras were .placed in jibs in iiic past year, only 327 mon and !)5 women reached the S23;o fiai:r c in earnings. /The ranks of extras inrlurtp many am^ young people who .see in extra work a stepping stone to hotter l.lvngs oven stardom. Yet. in all Hollywood Jilslorj- only a handful of extras haven risen to real success. CASTING IS IMl'KKSONAI, Our sc'rvi:e is utterly inip:rsonal. We receive orders from studios and fill Ijhein >vith exactly the types wauled. Where requirements are less exacting, the work Is fairly nutrlbutfd among those who qualify- . ; - 1 The 5000 extras on our rolls represent only a fr.irlloii of Ihe thousands who r.pply for registration. To fill our lists with people for whrm we know there' will be no work wo'ilcl simp'y be holding cut false hopes and, in general, adding to the sum cf disappointment anrt discouragement. One cl the things lhat appeal to make exlra work so attractive Is the wage scale: atmosphere. S9.45 a day; regular extr.\ wor!;, S15.SG dress and special business, S22.23 dancing, S2223. These who see ho]-e in Ihcst gemcrous figures should be reminded of the man who said his salary was 420,000 a year—for one week. ...

The incuoation period for paratyphoid lever is one to 10 days. Although second infections are! rare in these who have had the disease, immunization only protects for two years. Paratyphoid fever occurs in sin-1 Sic cases or small epidemics in all! parts of the country, especially m| the summertime. The disease may I pass unrecognized because of its' relatively short duration. Onset of paratyphoid fever is more abrupt than the slow, lingering Development of typhoid fever. The infection is frequently mistaken for food ipoisoning because of nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and 'abdominal pain which Is present in Hie beginning of the illness. Some paratyphoid patients become ill with chills, .severe headaches, and joint pains which resemble rheumatic fever. FATALITIES POSSIBLE CuWcok in paratyphoid fever i-; more favorable than typhoid fever, although fatalities imiy occur. No special drug or serum will shorten the course of the disease or lesse'.i (he complications. Ocod nursing care is more important 1 than any attempt at special treatment. Following recovery from paratyphoid fever, some patients continue to harbor the germs in their, intestines and thereby become car- rieis. .The presence of these germs does not affect .the carrier's .health, ', iow do round worms' •ANSWER: Children swallow the' fertilized worm eggs, which later hatch in the intestines, by touch- 1 ing contaminated soil and putting' their fingers in their mouth. 15 Years Ago In Blytheville— O.
