Whei How Big Is Our Debt? It may be profitless In convincing the taxpayer that our national debt burdens him as well as the big fellow, to point out dial he, as an individual, owes a certain amount. Perhaps It it because he is never called upon personally 10 pav on the debt. K • I Ing thc depression Is here - -- the blood does not clot properly, bleeding Is particularly likely to show up in various openings of the body, Including the nose. Nosebleeds are com- ' mon at high altitudes. They occur ! in nil kinds of long-lasing or chronic anemias, and in certain diseases, in which fever is present. High blood pressure may be associated with extensive nosebleed- ing. In such patients, bleeding may last a long time and be extremely difficult to stop. It is a question in such cases, however, as to whether the nosebleed Is not nature's way of relieving some of the pressure in the blood vessels.

In answer to a question, the Ecnentl said that the Soviet Union would not deliberately provoke war- He probably knew, even as he spoke, that there might be some who would take that statement out of context and quote him to the country's disadvantage. But he had been asked an honest question, and, since his knov-'ledge of the answer was certainly superior to that of most Americans,' he undoubtedly felt he had to give that answer honestly. It will be surprising if the opponents of aid to Europe, of universal military training, of an adequate armed forces budget and other necessities of national defense, do not try to make capital of General Eisenhower's opin- ( ion. So it might be well to' remember that the retired Chief of Staff said something more. He said that Russia is in no position to support a global war—and die has a number of firsthand witnesses to bear him out. But he also said that no other nation in the world is in a position to support one, either. He was obviously speaking of this country. General Eisenhower does not think Russia is going to provoke war. But, as a professional soldier, he favors ERP as an excellent security measure. He urges universal military training and believes, even with, atomic bombs and the "almost transcendent position of the air force" in modern war, that ground troops will always be necessary. The general did not say that the Soviet Union is not preparing for war, or that it would not resort to war if it had the strength and if present pressure, methods do not succeed. He did not say what Russia would do if capitalism crossed up Soviet predictions by failing to collapse. No one can say, and no one dare assume, that there is no danger when thinking of our own defense problems. The goal jf Russia's current five- year plan is io repair war damage and ' bring the country's industrial potential at least even with America's' by 1D50. Americans, who have traveled in Russia recently doubt that this can be done. But that i* the stated goal. At least that, is what he thinks, am! doesn't know won't hurt him, is the line philosophy of the politician "gold-digger" who said the best tax is one which will get the mast feathers with the least squawk. Thc taxpayer's indifference to his nation's debt also may spring from the feeling that the next generation should pay the debt m gratitude for the blessings It inherited. That may be base selfishness but it does exist. We hive always questioned the worth telling the taxpayer what he could have If didn't have the debt, thereby making the If the break Is only temporary, yet still serves to bring on fuller realization of the dangers of tur- ther inflation, it can lie a good thing. On th e other hand, too much of this fear that the country is now in the first grips of a recession is bad psychologically. a"d can only promote ft worse depression, Ever since the end of the war. abnut.

The "Safety for the Household" leaflet says that every member of the household ought to learn how to use the telephone. the nose from which the blood Is escaping. QUESTION: What can be done girl whose face and head seem to of he taxpayer "more conscious" o( his obligation. Bui that remains a more or less popular pastime of experts. As an example: Tax Outlook, discussing the national debt of 1257 billion, points out that this sum would build a new million-dollar school in 251,000 American communities .That means there would be 5,350 new million-dollar schools in "your" state, or, If you prefer, 1.800 such schools, 1.800 new libraries, and 1,750 new community houses in "your" state. Which Is about as convincing as the argument of educators you read about so often, that If »H of us would fuit chewing gum, or drinking soft drinks, or smoking, we could build plenty of schools in every stale. A more impressive case can be made, we believe, by pointing out that thc nation is like an Individaul with a mortgage on his home.' If that home owner raises the amount of that mortgage, naturally, the interest he must pay Increases. At two per cent the "carrying charges.' that is, the Interest on the national debt, is $5 billion, HO million, nnd that amount must be paid along with other taxes. And it must come out of your pocket before you can even begin to cat. buy clothes, educate your children, or pay for any other necessities. And you must continue to dig for that five billion unless the debt is reduced. —ARKANSAS DEMOCRAT. some economists nave ueen predict- j anti-inflitiollary proposals now being that a crash was du,. in a mat- i forc concrcss.
