Hope 1» the dream of a waking man.—Pliny. Snow, Inc., Followed by Rain A group of Topekans is trying to save us from that old saw that "Everybody talks about the weather, but nobody does anything about it." They have incorporated "Snow, Inc.," for the purpose of making rain fall on the parched, semi-arid areas of the western states. I huge sums are not loans at all, but investments in world stability and world prosperity and world peace. We do not believe most Knglishmen feel that way. The bank's probing, before, it gi-Kiits a loan, may be annoying, but we accept its justification. Though many Britons may be irritated, we doubt Unit many feel like the Star. We hope they don't. Hut if they do, wo still want to know what became of past billions—what will he done with future -billions. If this be snooping, bring out the putty nose and the false whiskers. Here we go. VIEWS OF OTHERS Haste Makes Waste If This Be Snooping Many Americans avc annoyed at times with New Hampshire's Sen. H. Styles Bridges, and toss epitliets at him, of varying degrees of harshness. But very few, even for frankly partisan reasons, are not behind him in his controversy with the London Star. That British paper called Senators Bridges, Leverett Saltonstall of Massachusetts and Henry Dworshak of Idaho "snooping" and "impertinent," because they have been asking what England and other European countries did with the billions we provided since war's end—and what they propose to (to with, billions more for which they ask. Governor Dewey of New York, titu- '. lar GOP ieader and leading prospect for the 1948 nomination, has helped make it clear that the American people, regardless of party, want to help the OH World back on its feet. To that end we are prepared to pay onerous taxes, save food, short ourselves on other things that Europe needs. The New York governor also helped to tip the scales against those who would withhold assistance from countries of whose governmental philosophy we disapprove. Our feelings that a Socialist government is not efficient will not cause us to hold back. But within certain limits we have every right to inquire whether we are being asked to pour billions down a rat-hole. We insist upon exercising that right. It is one thing to hand a beggar n nickle. It's quite another thing t 0 lend a friend ?10,000 with which to save his business. However good the friend—and England is the best we have—in this last 'case we feel entitled to ask whether the business is worth saving, and how it got into distress. In this case we know. England is well worth saving. Her distress follows two major wars, not provoked by her, which were beyond her capacity to sustain. One is entitled to ask what his friend did with the ?5000 lent him last year to save that same business. Did his use of that indicate that he will spend this wisely? Or did his operations with that ?5000 suggest that we ought lo make more stipulations about how another ?10,000 would be spent? One is entitled lo inquire whether less than $10,000 would do the job. Or whether, when that $10,000 is gone our friend will still have to close up shop, losing his shirt, and ours with it. Or whether the §10,000 will start the business uphill, but a third loan will b« needed, lo protect investments already made. All these questions would be ordinary prudence in the case of our troubled friend and our family bank account. They are exactly as pertinent and as essential in the case of Europe, including England, and the billions they unquestionably need. The Star seems to .feel that the , United States is under some legal or moral-compulsion to g i ve without qucs- ^ tjon ». lhou *h they and we know the Emphasis to the need or Indigent supervision of Ihe distribution of supplies we need to send to European countries Is pointed up by (he discovery of more Hum seventy-live million dollars worth of goods we had sent starving Greece, literally rotting, unused In warehouses. The uoods Included cigarettes, which arc a commodity o[ barter In Europe, medical supplies, ami, of all tilings, farm machinery. Tills In a country where people have liccn dying from epidemics and have been plowing Ihc ground with sharpened sticks lo fight oil starvation. There is no need .to Iry to write this disclosure down to Communist propaganda (although the communists undoubtedly will make much of the circumstances while our own faces are red). It is the same sort of carelessness that unfortunately was a feature of many of our military operations during Ihe war, where great piles ot supplies were piled up, never used, and negligently salvaged. We, won't miss the seventy-five million mucn. It is only a drop In Ihe bucket in Ihe gigantic war expenditures we have made. Most unfortunate part or tlic allair us the doubt It casts Into the minds of thinking Americans about the general wisdom of relief to Europe. More and more thinking Americans will get the idea In their heads that the kindest thing we could do for Europe would be to slop coddling those people and demand that they go to work Instead ol asking for handouts that they wast when they receive. . — FAYETTEVILLE tN.

For a long lime, it has been known that strong feelings (such as grief, Joy, excitement, or depression) can affect the.stomach. A family In deep grief does not wain to eat; excited children push their food away; the widow who cannot be consoled does not have any appetite. Should they eat under these circumstances, they may become ill. The explanation for this difficulty Is found when the stomach is observed through a special lube, called gastroscope, passed into the stomach. When feelings are aroused, gastric juice may stop flowing, even though it has been jtlmulat- ed by smell or anticipation of foocl. Nervous vomiting, in which undigested food is brought up, results from the muscular contractions reversing themselves after strong emotional stimulation.

My tale ot the senator's Inquiry into what he held to be the Army's tarnished brass. I fear, gets weirder as it goes along; kind of gives a taxpayer a headache. When General Jones finished telling the senators how he provided equal justice to all, generals and privates alike, a succession of wilnesses told the segments of a story which, when pieced together, went like this: Gen. Meyers' boss heard that he owned some stock in an outfit called the Aviation Electric Co., and told him to get rid ol it before he embarrassed the Army. Apparently he didn't. So along came Lawrence Bell, president of the Bell Aircraft Co., about once every 30 minutes- If | Citing f 0r somebody lo do somn you use irritating drops, nose stuf- sul)con tractintr on the electric wir- fincss may result, Most stuffy no- jug of his righting planes Gen. ses develop on a basis of allergy. 1 ,., Try leaving your nose alone for a time.

Brcen, administrator of the motion picture Industry's production code kccnsorship office), finally has made a statement about the proposed filming of a movie based on the life of Al Capone. It holds about as much water as a fish net. Says Brecn. who approved such dims as "Dilllngcr," "Due] in the Sun." a^id "Forever Amber": "We have no knowledge of plans of an.von c In llnllvwood lo miKe a motion picture based on or »of- RrMrrt hy the life of Al Capone. "Several llmrs film slories'based on Capone's life bivfi been sub- mlllril lo the Production Code Ad- mlnUlratlon for Its consideration, and have been rejected u vnac* cfpUbIr screen fare. The most re- cnt Instance of such rejection wa* approximately fivr. months ajto." Okay. Mr. Brceti. ni:inxn THAT STATEMENT However, the real facts art lhat 18 writers and 10 studios could be working on plan.^ for such a picture and Mr. Brccn wouldn't know anything about them until the script was aclually SUBMITTED lo him. BITCH says storks based on Ca- ponc's lilc have been rejected as uuacccplablc screen fare. It sounds Rood. But it means that If someone finally figures out an angle lhat is acceptable, under the code, Urcen will approve It. Just like he approved "Diilingcr" and scores of other gangster stories. I doubt if any of the Capone stories submitted lo Brecn wfre from major studios, nicy were probably submitted by promoters or shoestring producers. The Production Code Administration, reck- ing wllh politics, is harsh on Individuals, lenient, on the major studios, which support «nd sometimes dictate the code policies. So. ilr.spilc Brfrn'j statement wblcli means nothing. It Is obvious lhat tbe Oanone story can still be found irrepUhle to (he Prodiiclkm Code Arimlnlslra- tlnn.
