Here's a Year-Round Gift to Keep in Mind While the Christmas spirit is so much with UB, it may be well to keep in mind a certain gift our nation will be around to collect after the first of the year . .. and we don't have reference to Income taxes. On January 31, the Red Cross mobile bloodbank will be here for a one- day stay in our city. Chickasawba District Red Gross officials have asked for only 200 of Blytlieville's more than 16,000 citizens to give a pint of blood. This gift will take but little of your time and none of your money. The knowledge that it will be gratefully received by a maimed American youngster who spent his Christmas in a hole in ths ground should be pi-oof enough that, in this instance at least, it is far more blessed to give than to receive. Make plans now to be on hand when the Red Cross bloodmobile comes arouud. Your gift of a pint of blood will be the cheapest one of the year in relation to what it will mean to others. Our Cultural Desert Blooms As Music Floods the Land It has been a pretty popular custom in some circles to run down the United States as a barren place ctil- turaliy. Somebody always hauls out figures showing \ve spend more money on tobacco or cosmetics than on education. And there's a lot of grim head-shaking when talk turns to American interest in books, music and art. In the past this sweeping indictment may have been substantially true in most particulars. But life has changed a great deal in the l.ut 10 years or so, and the head-shakers may not be keeping abreast of the changes. The Wall Street Journay, which dips into some surprising fields from time to time, has just taken a look at America's current interest in music. The newspaper discovered that we Americans arc fast becoming the world's most numerous and possibly most ardent devotees of serious musical art. Measured in the hard terms of the dollar, this interest comes to around $45 million at concert and theater box- offices. Some cynic might point out that we spend almost exactly the same amount for popcorn in movie theaters. But though this leaves popcorn and Proko- fiev in a seeming tie, the parallel is R little unfair. _ It's more instructive to point out that mu«ic'i "t«k« 1 ' exceeds the $40 million the public spent to gee professional baseball this year. A hatful ot figures document the •tory. The 30 million people who paid to attend musical events this year are 30 per cent more than five years ago and double the number in 1941. Today there are nearly 200 symphony orchestras in the country, 80 per cent more than in 1940 and 900.per cent more than in 1920. In 1951 some 2100 towns featured serious music programs by recognized concert organizations, compared to around 1000 towns in 1940. So the spread is geographic as well as along the economic scale. It used to be that just the big cities had their own orchestras. Not any more. You'll find one in Phoenix, Ariz., Great Falls, Mont., the atomic energy center at Oak Ridge, Term., Bridgeport, Conn., and many another medium-sized place. The people in music ascribe the big growth to many things: radio, recordings, the movies, more music education in school, and special encouragements such as concerts for school children. It doesn't hurt, either, that programs nowadays seem designed more for ordinary folk and less for the experts. Though here and there a critic bobs up to declare that this is just more evidence of America's "primitive" enthusiasms, all the signs suggest the interest is genuine enough, Jot down a £ew of these figures and keep them around to spring on the next fellow who mutters deprecatingly about America's "bathtub" culture. They make a pretty fair answer. Views of Others 1 A Low Level Campaign? With President Truman already warning tho OOP against a campaign of "llea and smears" and the Republicans replying aggressively, the. outlook for a dignified and statesmanlike presentation of national Issues In the presidential raco becomes a little blurred. The president himself lowered the tone of the 1948 campaign by word-picturing the Democratic, party as a Santa Glaus and painting the 80th Congress as a kind of Scrooge. Also he Is mor« disposed than most Presidents have been to resort to the short and ugly word In his expressions of displeasure. The Republican party Is afflicted with its McCarthys and Eome of lb stalwarts have not hesitated to try U> embarrass the conduct .of foreign affalra and the defense policy for petty partisan gain. j Sometime much of the American electorate will becoms weary of having a national campaign conducted «t the moral level ot a precinct political brawl. Maybe this Is the time. Maybe enough people will in.sist on party nominees nbovo this type of public campaigning and conduct, und finally vote for a man with proper respect for tho country's most exalted ollice. —NEW ORLEANS TIMES-PICAYUNE Reds Use Blackmail Every day It becomes harrier to see any difference between the tactics of the Red negotiators In Korea and those that gangsters have practiced through the ages. NOT the Reds are rctus- ins to return the prisoners they have captured unless we give in to them on every other point. If we do, we will be bumllilated losers in what started out as a small police action and ended es one of our most costly wars. Even from the point of view of saving lives, there Is no assurance that we would gain by giving in to this Rca WacX-mal!. We can 111 afford to gamble national honor for the bodies or soldiers the Reds have killed or starved. Our negotiators should know by this lime that they can not depend on any Red to keep hts promise. The whole turn of Ihe negotiations fho«s that. It was a triple mistake to think that we could gain any real peace in Korea without military victory. The only language that the Reds understand is that of loaded guns. —DALLAS MORNING NEWS SO THEY SAY 1 don't know who lust sold a woman on ths theory that you can 1 combine marriage and a career, but men who ve. been doing It [or centuries obviously have proved that idea untenable.—Ginger Rogers, 'actress. * * * All we can &ay of American education Is that It's J colossal housing project designed to keep young people out of woise places until they ara able to" go to work.—Robert Hulchins, educator, Ford Foundation executive. « * « A conference is j group ot people wish r.o inlormatlon who get toteiher and pool their Ignorance.

Peter Cdson't Washington Column — Santa Clans Shunned U.S. Capital As Gift Allergy Became Epukmic WASHINGTON. (NEA) — Santa. Glaus was definitely told to stay away from the door and chimney of all Federal Housing Administration employes. In a circular letter sent out by FHA C o m m 1 s sioner Franklin D. Richards. In what was regarded as an extremely wet and cold blanket thrown over Christmas cheer, C o m m i s sloner Peter Edsoo Richards wrote: "I want to asi you to take Rffir- matlve steps to make certain insofar as possible that members ol the public, doing business with FHA, refrain from sending (you) giito. "Gilts should not be sent even (hough you may know that they tire prompted solely by the Christmas spirit of good will. The acceptance of such gifts can prove embarrassing (o both the recipient and the giver," Commissioner Richards then cited FHA Employes' Handbook regulations which provide that, "No em- ploye shall accept or agree to accept any favor, gratuitous service. gift, loan or any Item oi value In any form whatsoever, directly or indirectly, from any person or organization which has done, is doing or proposes to do business with this administration. Situations will undoubtedly arise where it may be embarrassing to refuse or to return the gift, but still there Is no Justification for keeping It." "Gilt" Is a Nasty Word Reversed Christmas spirit of this kind is very much In style In Washington this year. Members of the Washington press and radio corps have never been overse to accepting bottled goods such as carrot Juice and perfume, from admirers who may have liked one of their stories during the year. But there', one yarn going around the National Club about a correspondent whose conscience got to bothering him alter all the revelations ot mink coat and deep freeze gifts to government officials. "Ix>okl" he said to a wet-goods lobbyist, who was passing out his usual Christmas container of sheer. "I can't accept this gift. But you get me a case wholesale?" Lan-yer for a Lawyer Telford Taylor, head of the new Small Defense Plants Administration, was a brigadier general and chief prosecutor of the Nazi war criminals at the famous Nurenber" trials. At his first press conference the new SDPA administrator introduced his staff. He came to James M. McHaney of Little Rock, Ark., who was General Taylor's deputy during the Nuremberg trials. Administrator Taylor brought McHaney to Washington from Little Rock and made him general cousel of BDPA.

East also mis- guessed by linessing the nine of hearts, '.which would have been correct if West's opening lead had been from the )ack instead of the ace. South won with the Jack of hearts and promptly returned his singleton diamond. Fishbein took "the ace of diamonds and returned another IOT heart. This time the maneuver bore fruit since declarer played the ten of hearts from dummy, and East was able to win with the queen. East recovered from his surprise at winning this trick In time to return a heart to Fishbeln's ace. Fishbein now returned a club and declarer agonized over a choice between the queen and nine from dummy. Since East held both the king and Jack ot clubs the play from dummy made no difference, but South couldn't know that. Declarer finally played low from dummy, and East's jack forced out the ace. South had lost two hearts and a diamond, so he needed the rest of pneumonia may not months later. Occasionally It develops without any obvious reason though infection is presumed to have been present. It may get worse for months or years and destroy more and more of the functions of the kidneys. If only one kidney is involved It may never be noticed ,but If both are attacked the condition Is likely to get worse. In acute nephritis th* patient usually feels uncomfortable and may notice some puffiness under the eyes" Swelling of the lower part of the lees, and perhaps even bloody urine slight fever and chilly sensations are common. Nose bleeds, headaches, loss of appetite sometimes appear. The lessened amount of urine and Its dark bloody, or cloudy appearance are characteristic. Chronic nephrite starts more gradually, though the symptoms are like the acute variety but less severe. Accumulation of fluid (dropsy or edema) is common, As soon as diagnosis has been made by means of examining :he urine and the blood, treatment hould be begun. In acute Bright's disease, bed rest is necessary. Diet is important and it now is devised to fit the ability of the kidneys to take care of the food eaten. Many years ago most patients were orbidden salted foods and proteins. lut today more liberal allowances of these foods Is permitted in many cases. Drain Hold In the chronic form of Br'eht's llseafe. special attention Is ziven tn he accumulation of dropsical fluid. Drugs are frequently used to sAim- Jlate the secretion ot the urine and hereby remove some of the excessive "luid. Accumulated fluid Inside th! abdomen Is often drawn off through a needle. Because so many of the infections rom which nephritis develops have now been conquered by the new- medicines, it looks as thouHh Brighfs disease was on the way out.
