Our Biggest Task for 1952 Is to Regain Moral Values Entering the year 1952, the Amer- people Individually and together n resolve in unnumbered ways to bet- themselves. They would be seriously were they not to pledge above •B to »«ek to return their country to the h4gh path of a morality honored in practice no less than in principle. To the. nation's lasting shame, the Tear Jn«t ended has unfolded a seemingly end lea* chronicle of corruption.' Dark •mvdges have been revealed upon the record of the national government, the business community, the respected citadel of U. S. military training at West Pohit, the seldom-sullied halls of college sport. Men'may still contend with point that so far as government wrong-doing goes, the revelations of Iflal cannot be said to match the grandly conceived sins of the Teapot Dome scandals in the early 1920's. But hi one vastly significant way the current carnival of immorality is worse. The men who committed wrong in the day of Teapot Dome appeared for the most part to realize what they had done. When the lid came off their activities, some confessed, some resorted to suicide, others went to criminal trial. Most of the new transgressors do not concede they have breached the moral code at all. To do wrong and insist it is right is something else. To do wrong and profess complete ignorance of any error is likewise a different thing. But these have been the themes of the men who stand today in the limelight of discovered evil. Their clarion has been "I can't see that anything I did was wrong." What has happened to America's teaching and appreciation of its moral standards that they can be so badly misunderstood by so many ? . What warped the sense of values of the college lads who welcomed back as a conquering hero a confessed bribe- taker? Much searching of our minds, much deep study of our present conditions of life may be needed before we find the full answers. Right and wrong have grown fuzzy in the consciences of men In every sphere of living. If the blur becomes much greater, America will head inexorably downhill away from its peaks of achievement. We must set about now, in 1952, to »ee that this does not happen. To se^ that moral values are clarified, re-stated, and elevated again to the pedestal where they must remain for any people which professes to pursue the ordered, decent existence poisibk under free government. Tallulah's Chimes Toll for Critics No one can say that actress Tallulah Bankhead is not alert to her opportunities—wherever they present themselves. At the trial of her former maid on a charge of altering checks, Tallulah, who talks as if she had swallowed a blow torch, has managed to enliven the proceedings on several occasions. For a while there were ill-concealed guffaws and hoarse asides like "what a ham" in comment on the defonsu attorney's performance. The judge tossed her out. But she had to come hack to testify. As she brushed past reporters to enter the courtroom, she boomed majestically in her best network tones: "I have no fear—this may be my finest hour." It may well have been. And it would have been no surprise if at the end o£ it she had said: "Pardon me, judge, but it's time for me to ring my chimes." Views of Others Memorable Quotations r rom the 1951 Scene AP Newsfcalurcs 'PRESIDENT TRUMAN in his "State of the Union" message to Congress: "Peace is precious to us.

(NBA) — Speak- g of holiday feasting, there's one ittle group of congressmen that has had all the raw fish it wants while, got It was a House A P P ropriations sub- committee Peter Edson under Rep. .Christopher C. McGrath of New-: York, with him A'ere Reps. Ben Jensen of Iowa, ar! Andersen of Minnesota and George Schwabe of Oklahoma. They next went out to see iiow much money the U. S. would have o spend next year, and why, to support these former Japanese mandated islands. The U. S. High Commissioner, former Sen. Elbert Thonas of Utah went along, for his Irst inspection of the territory he governs. There wasn't a great deal of en- ertalmnent on the McGrath jun- . The Polynesian natives on the .slands are too poor, for one thing. There was a platform erected and a crowd of about 1000 including the major chiefs and a lot of school children to sing welcoming songs when the party landed on Truk. Commissioner Thomas made a little speech, saying he'd be back again to stay longer and get better acquainted. There were a couple of parties thrown for the congressmen on the U. S. Island of Guam, which Is much more highly civilized than the Trust territory. There were about 50 gue.sts at each of these stag affairs, and enough food for 150—including the raw fish. But the party that really stopped the congressmen was an .affair arranged in a native restaurant on Ponape, In the eastern Carolines. The name of the restaurant, by the way, was "Antoine's" like the New Orleans gourmets' paradise. Never Hoard of Cooking Only the menu at the Ponape Antoine's was, first, raw crayfish— the big clawless lobster tail variety —then two or three kinds of crab. topped served off with head, tall raw and tuna. It's all, smells considerably and is considered quite a delicacy. But not to the congressmen. Speaking seriously, they found other problems in the islands more serious than the diet, according to staff members who went along. For instance, there's the matter of where to locate the headquarters for governing the Trust territory. Commissioner Thomas has been operating from Honolulu since he took over from the Navy for the Department of Interior, on July 1 But Hawaii is 2000 miles away from the three million square miles o ocean which make up the Trust territory. And that's too far for proper inspection and administration. The Japanese had their capita for the mandate on Dublon, a. little island near Truk. Under the Japs Dublon was a city of some 30.00C people. But it was completely de stroyed In the war and is now- over grown with bush. To rebuild thi capital here would cost entirely toe much money. Next best bet seems to be Saipan north of Guam. The Japs and the V. S. armed services after them had big installations on Saipan during the war. Since then, without ade- q.uate guards and caretaking, there has been plenty of vandalism and lots more Just plain weathering am deterioration. Most of the buildings were temporary construction, not made to withstand tropic climate. See EDSON Page 6 IN HOLLYWOOD By ERSKINE JOHNSON NEA Staff Correspondent HOLLYWOOD.

JORDAN, M.D. Written for NEA Servk* A clot or obstruction in one of the blood vessel? suuplying the heart muscle Is called a coronary thrombosis or coronary occlusion. An attack of coronary throm- bosU can cause eutlden death quite unexpectedly as In the case of Mrs. D.'B brother, tvho was ound in the morning in his room. Mrs. D. said "his room was only few yards from mine, but I did not hear a sound. He had not nown he had a bad heart, nor did we. He was 55 years old,- and had been active up to that time." Tragic occurrences of this kind happen oil too often but there are in enormous number of people who lave suffered a coronary thrombosis and who have recovered to a remarkable degree. Any living tissue which Is deprived of its blood supply wil die. Consequently, that portion of the heart which is supplied by a blood vessel ivbfch Is shut off by a clot win perish. If the area involved is a large one, therefore, the heart cannot continue and this i« why sudden deaths occur. If the area Is small and the heart Is allowed to rest, two things begin to happen. The heart muscle which has been killed Is replaced gradually by strong scar-like tissue. Also, other blood vessels begin to take over some of the functions of the closed-off coronary arterj so that a new blood supply becomes established. A long period of rest in bed must be faced by the victim of a coronary thrombosis. For best results this period of rest must be followed by slowly increasing activity—also for a long time. If the other portions of the coronary arteries are :.i reasonably good condition, the heart can make a good recovery from the damage which it has suffered. This is. of course, true particularly in those who have suffered a coronnry thrombosis comparatively early in life. Of course, carelessness abou' health or unrestrained activity Js not justified, but It -should be remembered that many victims maki remarkably good recoveries. SYMPTOMS USUALLY SEVERE There are probably some w h o have suffered an attack of coronar, thrombosis who have not even known that they have had such an attack. But, the symptoms are usually paleness of the skin and weaknes severe enough, consisting of pain so that medical help Is obtainec romntly. Expert advice is extremely im ortant as the pain may disappea: , a short time even without treat .ent and give a false sense of se urity. Doubtless many tragedie esult from Ignoring such warnini ignals. I was about to take i frtehtaet- ng step, filled wi* frtw*»Mn« ommlttment* and awesom* ram»- catlorw. But not now.

Sadler, in case you know ny of the Chicago Sadlers—ha* ome forth with some comforting i-ords for we • who ar« chafed bf oiwcfence to /lip over a new }»at r two this time of year. It could e disastrous, he says. Ever hear of a "pathosis?" NeHh- r had 1 until today, and beitevo ne, I don't want one. As I an make out, It U an affliction irectly attributable to New Year'» csolutions. For the benefit of h«- iianity, i shall pass on thte iu- ormation and perhaps we oan g«t s'ew Year's resolutions outlawed. ' ,' ' I DON'T WISH to appear weak- ' •illed or anything, but, Lor4 snows, there's enough trouble afoot hese days without tossing in some- hing new. What with war and caudal and taxes and the cost of iving and the common cold, we M a nation are sufficiently plagued without risking anything like 'pathosis." A "pathosis," Dr. SadJcr aajv, b a "wrong attitude." Oversimplified perhaps, but that's the gist of H. wouldn't want to see this path:sis business get a, grip on U» lountry. for years have been spent n developing our present attitude* md n sudden change might be like itanding In a draft.

Ambition and high goals are commendable, . Dr. Sadler admits, "but the perfection- 1st goes at a killing pace." So, ha v reasons, don't try to be perfect. Don't make New year's resolutions calculated to transform you into a paragon of perfection. Yoe'U go nuts trying to keep f ->m. Thanks, doc; those a¥e the word* I've been waiting for. perfecMon nice, but all along I've kind of harbored a liking for mediocrity.

There hava been a few unkind souls casting slurs on th« government as falling some short of perfection. Now that less than that has received a blessing from science, federal officialj oan now point to the record and proudly proclaim: "See? You want IK to get pathosis, or something?"
