Eisenhower's Position Clear; It's Up to His Supporters General Eisenhower's Paris political •tatement meani this la not to be 1948 all over again. This time he is definitely available as a presidential candidate and openly welconies tha efforts of his sup- portera to bring about his nomination next July. Furthermore, he has at last eatab- S»hed publicly that he Ja a Republican by conviction and voting record. That it it immediately clear he will not withdraw hit name from the New Hampshire primary, first in ths nation, when It is entered by Senator Lodge and hig other campaign managers. Nor, presumably, will ha block any other primary activities initiated in his behalf. Thig must is on the positive side. Negatively, however, he had made it equally evident that he will not ask to be relieved of hig NATO command to seek the nomination, and will not take part in any pre-convention activities. He is insistent upon sticking at his present job in the absence of a "clear- cut call to political duty." Yet this does not mean he holds himself aloof from politics. The tenor of his statement shows that he feels so deep an allegiance to present responsibilities that no half-hearted command from people and party could tear him away. Nor does it mean he demands that he be truly "drafted." The mere act of endorsing the campaign efforts of his backers wipes away any notion that \ve are here being asked to draft Eisen- - hower for the presidency. A draft assumes neither approval of nor participation in campaign activities. To ask that a call to duty be clear- cut is something else. It seems a fail- request from a man who occupies such a key position an the Western defense structure. The general is reluctant to abandon this vita! post to chase a political will o' the wisp. What would constitute a clear call only Eisenhower can define. Public opinion po!!s long have shown him (he most popular choice for the presidency. But other polls indicate Senator Taft Is the great favorite of the established Republican organization. A realist, Eisenhower undoubtedly does not believe this amounts to an unmistakable demand for his political services. Possibly only a strong showing in several key primaries would turn the trick. To a skeptic on polls, popular sentiment expressed in primaries might be more convincing. And such evidence, if sufficiently dramatic, might win over •ubstantial elements of the GOP organ- iaation now wedded to Taft. Certainly the burden is now heavily upon Ei»enhow«r'» wtpporta* V} us* the primnrtei If they ar« to convert hii preset availability int« an «ctiv» candidacy. Sea Saga Should Inspire Us For eight days, Capt. Kurt Carlsen Bat alone on the broken, listing hulk of his small freighter, the Flying Enterprise, in the gale-swept Atlantic. And while he was there he was good for the whole world. He reminded us all of a lot of things. A lone figure against the raging sea, he reminded us of the raw courage with which men can combat the hostile torments of weathr. In this fight he stood for every man, and evoked every man's sympathy. Carlsen reminded us, too, of what it means not to give up. Ho stuck by his ship when his cause seemed hopeless, when the odds against him were mountainous. Would that we all could feel such extraordinary devotion to duty! And he showed how important it is to muster one's greatest coolness and skill in the confusion af a crisis. Wilh admirable discipline, this brave skipper directed the safe removal of his crew and passengers under most hazardous conditions, and then calmly stayed he- hind to ride out the storm. Yes, Captain Carlsen stirred our hearts with his solitary defiance of wind and miler. But did he stir tliem enough? Did he arouse in us fresh courage to meet our own less dramatic problems daily? Did he spur us to devote ourselves more faithfully to duty and to exert our skills in the momenta they are most needed? If he did not, the lesson of his bravery will soon be lost. If he did, his saga can be a bright chapter in man's rediscovery of his simple strength to face a turbulent world. Views of Others Dollar Shortage Closer Home In the face of apparently vast supplies of svsil- •ble currency mul credit, an interesting dollar •hortage appears to be developing on the American business scene. Perhaps ominous would be a better adjective. Corporation treasurers by the dozen are look- Ing over their prospective 1051 Income account* »nd balance sheets and finding out, «ometlme» to their surprise, that fat cash balances are all to frequently destined to go to tha Collector of Internal Revenue—or otherwise evanesce. In an expanding and price-boosting economy, the whole year's profits of any successful enter- prls« art unlikely to appear in the form of cash in the bank on the last day-:-of December. Part of the profit Is ordinarily tied'.xip in inventories, accounts receivable anrt other working capital Items—to say nothing ot the Income that Is plough•d back Into fixed capital, like land, buildings »nd machinery or in the payment of debt*. But the new 1951 corporate tax rates, running almost to 70 per cent over-all In some instances, mean that this much cash' must be on hand— regardless of other considerations— to square account* with the Federal Treasury. Furthermore, there has been a certain amount of speeding up of the rate at which this money must be turned over to Washington. Quit* aside from taxes, the higher wage rates. the higher prices for everything and the more dollars tied up in the same physical rniantlty of Inventories—all this puts the bee on the corporate bank balance. If there is plant expansion on the way, the dollar shortage becomes evrri more ncute. And finally, when the company goes to buy its new inventories, or its new plant, It may find that the value of (he bank balance It does have is more vaporish than the figures Indicate. Thus It is that a number of very Inrge industrial enterprises—with very large Incomes—hava recemiy announced new financial arrangements with Institutional lenders, particularly the insurance companies. They are probably setting a pace for some others; they may even have foreseen a shortage in longer term money that Impelled them to spcert up arrangements for this financing. If that turns out to be true, n good ninny other dollar-short businesses tnny knock on tile lenders' doors too late to be accommodated. And meantime the demands for commercial bank credit ara bumping the ceiling of supply. Certainly this 1« true of the larger banks—and the smaller banks, by definition, don't hnve the big resources, even in the aggregate. Part of the quest for a solution ot the dollar shortage at home will likely wind up In Washington along with the new better advertised shortage of dollars abroad. There will b« pressures for more money—1. e., more government pump-priming. But this in turn will merely intensify the federal government's own financial problems which, for the new year of 1952, already look pretty difficult. All of this, oddly enough, is the aftermath of monetary inflation. Paradoxical though It seems, dollars are short because there are so many of them. The more dollars there are the less each one will buy and so more dollars are needed to keep people Iram having a shortage. The more dollars, the more shortage; the more shortage, the more the demand for more. It adds up to a doleful dilemma. If the government turns to even cheaper money for a solution It simply manufactures more trouble. This is one case where the more, the less merrier. —THE WAli STRICT JOURNAL WASHINGTON (NBA)—A Taft.'s.-Eisenhower battle at the Republican national convention in Chl- :ago la now being sized up as a ihow-down on whether the Grand Old' Party goea conservative or progressive.

In this mad dash in the direc- ion we like to think Is forward, we iccasionally stumble over fleeting Peter ft/son's Washington Co/umn Battle of Tafi-vs.-Eisenhower Would Chart Path of the GOP the ftrit to assert Peter Edv>n that he Is really a progressive. He doesn't like to hav« the label of "reactionary" pinned on him. As proof of Taft's liberalism, his recent appearance with Democratic Senator Harry Byrd of Virginia, on an American Medical Association forum Is cited. On most questions, Senator Tnft's position was considered lo be to the left of Senator Byrd's, Also, it Is pointed out that Senator Taft was chairman of the Resolutions Committee that drafted the GOP platforms of 1914 and 1948. Even Oov. Enrl Warren of Cal- Itornla, an avowed progressive, has conceded these platforms were decidedly liberal. Taft nevcrthcltK; has the support of most Republicans Old Guard politicians. In trying to shake off the mantle of conservatism thrown over the shoulders of their candidate, Taft supporters have asserted that it is the professional politicians— the candidates for public, office— who are backing Eisenhower in the hope that they can ride to victory on Eisenhower's coattails THEV'D SWITCH TO TAFT In spite of this, Senator Taft has gained the reputation of being the spokesman for the conservatives. He Is the number one enemy of the New Deal and Fair Deal Democrats. He is opposed by nearly all union labor organization leaders. He has the tacking of moti businessmen. He has been critical of nearly all of the so-called bl-partisan foreign policies. These are the points that lead to the conclusion that If Senator Taft is the Republican candidate, he would steer the party on a course decidedly to the right. Leading the campaign to make General Eisenhower the GOP candidate are Senator Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr., of Massachusetts and Senator James H. Duff ot Pennsylvania, both with known smypa- thles for progressive Republicanism. Senator Lodge was even a candidate in opposition to Senator T»ft for chairmanship of the OOP policy committee in the Senate. Also prominent in the Eisen- hower-for-Preslrient movement are Republican Senator Prank Carlson and ex-Senator Harry Darby of Kansas. Their voting records In the Senate were In the main In support of the Taft wing of the party position. They support Eisenhower because Kansas Is Elsenhower's home state, traditionally Bull Moose in sentiment since the dayi of Teddy Roosevelt. The Eisenhower backer who clinches the belief that the General will be found m the camp of the GOP progressive is Gov. Tom Dewey of New York. It was Gov. Dewey. more than any other Republican, who was accused by his own party of too much "me-to-ism," meaning that he supported some Democratic programs for social security and the bi-par- tlMn foreign policy. General Eisenhower can be securely ticketed as favoring internationalism as the American foreign policy. He is by no means an isolationist. He has even been the most Important instrument for carrying out the Truman-sponsored military assistance in Europe. CI-OSE TO THE THRONE . If General Eisenhower should become the Republican nominee, Gov. Dewey, Senators Lodge, Duff, Carlson and the others who were "for Eisenhower before Chicago" will naturaly be in a position close to the throne where they would have the most Influence. Of the other Republican candidate, Gov. Warren, M mentioned above, ts definitely a progressive. Gov. Harold Stassen of Minnesota used to be considered a great light by the liberal wing of the GOP. Since his most recent press IN HOLLYWOOD By ERSKTNE JOHNSON NBA Staff Correspondent HOLLYWOOD (NBA) — Humphrey Bognrt, who took, so many suspensions as a Warner Bros, star, says that he's through scrapping and snarling over movie material.

JORDAN, M,D. Written Jor NBA Service "We have a major problem in our household," writes a reader. 'Namely, constipation, Both father ind son have this trouble, and he son was born with It. Is con- tipation inherited?" True constipation is not as eom- lon as most people think, and it is often confused with spastic colon, which has frequently been discussed In this column. It seems safe to say that It is not inherited, although there is an unusual condition known as rlirschsprung's disease in which the ower bowel is exceptionally large at birth and produces a most peculiar form of constipation. Failure to set aside a regular ;ime of day for a bowel movement i the cause of much trouble. Poor diet, of course, can and often does cause constipation. Too many people gulp their food down without allowing enough time for Jieir meals. Some foods are so highly refined that they do not contain the bulk necessary at. times. Fresh fruits and vegetables make up an insufficient part oi the diet. These foods not only supply a large part of the bulk in the diet but also aid In peristalsis or the wave-like movements of the intestine which carry the contents down through the Intestinal tract.

The mistaken Idea s common that If a person cleans himself out once a weke with a jood strong purge it will be good. This disturbs the normal rhythm of bowel evacuation. Treatment of simple constipation, unless the trouble has begun in childhood or has lusted for a very long time, is usually satisfactory. The underlying cause, whether diet, neglect or bause of lexatives first hns to be corrected. Establishing good habits by having a movement at a particular time ot day and yielding to the urge when It comes are extremely important.
