In recent meeting*, the United Na- tfcwi conferees hare been doing all th« •ooceding, almost to the point of «n- tortgtring th« Allies' future'mHitary »e- •wnty on the Korean peninsula. This ha« been done in the interest of Indicating our firm degirs to reach n set. tlement, to prevent the talks from bog- £5og down. for example, we have abandoned our demand for aerial inspection over North Korea during an armistice period, and have agreed to limit troop rotation (the Reds wanted it halted altogether). But if these concessions are not to be matched by similar yielding on the Communist side, there can be little hope of further significant progress in the truce parleys. As one UN negotiator stated, we have not come to Panmunjom to arrange for the destruction of our forces. The Reds are stalling, clearly awaiting new instructions from higher authority—possibly Moscow. Meanwhile thye fill the void with insulting epithet. Soviet Foreign Minister Vishinsky's suggestion that the UN Security Council try to help bring the talks to successful conclusion may provide one key to the delay. The Communists may have decided they have gained all the advantage they can at Panmunjom. They may feel that futui-e advances depend upon transferring the negotiations to the larger political arena. If this is their hope, the responses of top Western officials make it evident they are doomed to disappointment. We have no intention of giving the Reds a chance to mix broad political questions with the specific military issues under negotiation in Korea. Nor do we intend to throw them into the Security Council where Russia can veto any solution not satisfactory to her. On the other hand, the Reds' aim may be simpler. Having seen what striking concessions we have already offered in an effort to keep the talks moving toward settlement, they may be convinced that continued stalling and stubbornness will push Washington to yield new ground. But we declared on announcing our most recent concessions that these constituted our "final" offer. On this proposition we should stand. \Y e have yield«d enough. It is the Communists'" turn to concede. If they do not, it will then become apparent that, whatever their objectives »arli«c in th* Ulk*, they no longer want a m! tnic«, The major point on which they must yield is their insistence on the right to build up military airfields in North Korea during an armistice. This is utterly incompatible with peaceful aims and cannot be defended legitimately certainly not on the flimsy pretext that to deny them this right amounts to "interference in North Korea's internal affairs." In (he past the Reds have from time" to time conceded just enough to keep •live the belief they really wanted an armistice. This could have been a ruse, designed to lull us to sleep while they prepared for a big spring offensive. If It was not, the moment has come for the Communists to demonstrate the fact. Last Stronghold The lawmakers don't talk much about tt when they're back home, but there's one front where they have done a bang- up job in halting inflation. That's in their own restaurants on Capitol Hill. Through «!1 the flurry of rising prices in the hectic postwar years, the legislators have guarded their five-cent cup of coffee as if it were the Holy Grail. They have behaved as if any assault on it were an attack on the sanctity of government itself. And, in only slightly less degree, they have felt the same about the rest of their capitol menu. Well, whatever else congressional immunity means, it no longer meang protection for the lawmaker's cheap • lunch. Starting now, the sacred cup of coffee costs a dime. And other staple items are up accordingly. Yes, the congressman can mark it down at last on his calendar: Inflation began in 19521 Views of Others Uncle Sam's Employes Since the outbreak of fighting In Korea, federal payrolls have Increased by about 500.00O workers. Following th« end of World War II. Uncl» Sam cut hU payrolls down to about 2,000.000 employes, Since th»n, despite efforts to force retrenchment on the administration by such •tout economizers as Sen. Byrd of Virginia and 8en. Douglas of Illinois, the payrolls have climbed to mon than 2,500,000. More than a million new employes were hired by the government during the 1951 fiscal year— «n average of 4000 every work day. By far the largest increases were In the defense department. Every once In a while .certain congressmen, . newspapers, and individuals "call attention to the constantly Increasing number of federal work- era. Sometimes—particularly if congressional hearings or votes on approprialions are scheduled at the time—the executive departments slash off * few thousand workers and hold down payrolls for a short while. But once the new appropriation U parsed and signed by the President, it Memj that all restraint Is cast to the winds and the department* hire more heavily than before. If the country faces s new budget of pos- ilbly as much as $90,000,000,000 for the fiscal year beginning next July 1, mainly comprising defense expenditures, strenuous efforts should be made by the administration to bring non- defense programs, and cost ot payrolls well below pre-Korenn levels. The defense department should cut down waste and civilian payrolls to a minimum. Despite the fact that this, is a national election year when neither political party Is eager to fire anybody, we believe the party that recognizes there Is a limit to the excessively high tax burden the American people cnn carry will find, appreciation at the polls. —NEW ORLEANS TIMES-PICAYUNE SO THEY SAY My only ambition is to be able some day to paint a Chrtst so moving that tlicvse who see Him will t» converted.—Georges Roualt, French artist. * » * America's plant dispersal program I* a complete myth.

By PETER EDSON NEA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON (NEA)' — Most mportant item on British Prime Minister Winston Churchill's Amer- c.ln progrnm will probably be Ills Islt with Bernard Baruch in New York. This Is the nature of a courtesy call. Baruch visited Churchill In England last slimmer. He lost money betting on Churchill's horses, too. It isn't that any world - s h n king Peter Edson decisions are gong to be reached when the two Idcr statesmen get together again. To deep, dark, Machiavellian, mas- er-mlnd conspiracy Is afoot. The big issue at stake is wheth- r Mr. Baruch will be able to per- uade Mr. Churchill to use n hear- ig aid. For the sad truth Is that prime minister Is having n lit- e difficulty with his hearing. And e won't give In to these new-fang- ert contrivances .that might be of nme help. In fact, the story around the Lonon press corns Is that Mr. church- 1 sometimes uses his hearing han- Icap to good advantage. In House ' Commons debate, where there Is iways considerable hub-bub and car-hear, the prime minister has «en suspected of letting on that he didn't catch certain question! from the members that he didn't want to answer. Later on, he nas proved that he heard these dirty cracks perfectly well, and he" has answered them at his own good time In perfect Churchlllian style. Of course, If Mr. Churchill should feign not to hear anything Important that President Truman or Canadian Prime Minister Louis at Laurent might have to say to him. It wouldn't be so good. And that's why this matter o( the hearing old becomes Important. Baruch, th< Bt»r Salesman Bernard Baruch has been the world's best unpaid salesman and demonstrator for hearing aids. When the 91-year-old ex-mayor ot Tokyo, Yuklo ozaki, came to the U. S. In 1950. Baruch gave him a hearing aid. When Baruch shoved his listening device In the faces of oongrew- mcn who were quizzing htm on Capitol Hill, the newsphotos of that event convinced a lot of people there was no sense In being sensitive over tad hearing. If Baruch can now convince Churchill he ought to use a hearing aid, It will be a help all around. if the result of this Is that every American manufacturer of hearing aids showers down his latest models on the unsuspecting prime minister, it will be too bad. That might convince Mr. Churchill that he shouldn't be seen using any of them. Too much of a free advertisement. Th* British are-wnsltlv* »bout such thlngi. Take the matter of soap, for instance. The British Information ?*ryce.ln Washington did » very good ]ob of furnishing the Washington press with « detailed description of the bedroom, parlor and oath which the prime minister will occupy in the British Embassy during his visit* here. But when It came to the kind of TWrl l he £Lr" ' n ' he *° aP <»•*•. »w Brrasn Embassy censored that out Too commercial. They did break down and My, darn It, that it was English soap. No DeUlh on Bnndy and Cljran There was another detail on which the British Embassy held out. That was on revealing how large was the stock of brandy and cigars laid In for the P.M's visit. All they would say'was, "It's ample." As for what Mr. Churchill is talk- Ing about on his American visit there has been all kinds of double- domed guessing and experting. There Is an official agenda, or list of things to talk about, worked out by the British Embassy with the U. S. state Department and the White House. But lust what It is that the prime minister wants to say on each subject, not even Sir Oliver Franks, the British Ambassador to Washington, .professes to know.

Because of the nature of the en- tir* bud, howtwr. South piir».1 the nine of spades at the first trick This play limited him to one spade trick. East returned a spade, whereupon West took the ace of spades and cleared the suit by leading a third round. Now, however, South could take the club finesse In safety. Whenever East won the king of clubs he could not return a spade. East actually refused the first club trick, hoping South would commit some imbecility on the theory that the finesse was successful.

This fact serves to «m- Phaalae the Importance and frequency of this dangerous enemy or modem man. About 600,000 men and women become afflicted in the United otates alone every year. _ There are several different conditions which lead to high blood presure. One of the most Im- wrlant [s hardening of the ar- ertes. or arteriosclerosis Practically all of the different kinds of high blood pressure as well as hardening of the arteries tend to Increase In the later years of life, with the rising average age of the nation's population, they alee an Increasing toll. It has been recently stated that :very person over the age of 45 >as a 50/50 chance of dying from Ugh blood pressure, apoplexy, a leart attack, or some similar condition related to high blood pres- ure or arteriosclerosis. More deaths from these diseases occur each year than from combat n either world wars. So far at is now known, there are several different causes involved In the development of high >!ood pressure. Some of them are mown, can be discovered, and can be remedied. However, m many cases, the ause or causes are not yet fully understood by medical scientists, and It Is still Impossible to get at the root of the trouble and overcome the basic fault. What can be clone about these great killers? Today one of the best things is to have an examination, including measurement of the blood pressure, taken at regular intervals so that the first, signs of an Increasing blood pressure can be .recognized. : If for-id early some patients can be cured; in other cases the mere fact of an early diagnosis makes it possible for the physician to Jive advice.which slows down the development of the symptoms and complications of high blood pressure. RESEARCH MUST CONTINUE What is still needed to conquer high blood pressure is research. This is now going on in many Places, supported by the generous contributions of citizens from all over the country. One line of attack is directed toward diet. The rice diet which appears to be one form of low sodium diet, has received much attention, but Is hardly the final answer. Another extremely Interesting result of research is the demonstration in dogs that the brain can produce and empty Into the blood stream a hormone-like substance which acts to Increase the blood pressure. This may serve as a vital clue to the relationship between the nervous system and aigh blood pressure which has for long been so generally recognized. In order to solve the problem of high blood pressure, research must go on. NORTH (D) 4843 »Q4 « A» *AQJ10«2 *A107«J VK»5J « « a i •ocn 4KJt It VJS73 * j 10 8 4 *K»» Korth-Soutt vnl 1* Pu. IH.T. »H T.

IKE'S STAND that he Wffl accept but not pursue the Republican nomination, Mr. Murrow says, shows the general's "reluctance to enter the hurly-burly of partisan politics." Aside from a professional politician, who wouldn't hesitate? In the first place, Ik» Is displaying commendable faith to hU pra- sent Job, which to a little matter of '< keeping Europe from committing suicide via disunity.

No law I know ol against a man changing his mind; the womenfolk have no exclusive franchise on this. Seems to me it was more a case of having, his mind changed for him by the support given the mere proposal that he run for president. Gen. Ike also stands accused by Mr. Murrow of wanting to be president Lot of peoplq want to, and^j ihere are worse aspirations to hold': Wanting to be president Is still a laudable ambition, despite the dull shade Harry T. has lacuered the Job. Far as I can see. Gen. Ike Is ell- rible for no penalty for changing hU mind or hankering to be president or maintaining silence to data on a number of points. A number of other aspirants and their claquest might endear themselves to ua more by following suit.
