Tokyo Dispatch Tells Story To Be Read With Shame A dispatch from Tokyo by Edward Kennedy, Scripps-Howard correspondent, sets down a story that ought to b« read with shame throughout this It teHs how a private, wounded on patrol, was brought to a forward hos- pttal m Korea with one leg nearly shot off, his other foot shattered and an arm broken. He needed blood badly. But there wasn't any, because the civilian blood line from the home front had failed. So fo«r fighting soldiers from the front lines, who might themselves be struck down at any time by enemy. fire, had to be pulled back to the hospital tent to give their blood in hope of saving their comrade. Thirteen others from the wounded man's front-line regiment also gave their blood. When the soldiers had each given a pint, they returned to their foxholes and bunkers. As Kennedy put it: "In the States you get coffee and cookies after you give a pint of blood. These men got a Chinese Communist attack for breakfast, and they got shot at for lunch." The wounded man's life was saved, though he lost a leg. And he's grateful that his buddies could be spared from the fighting front nt the critical moment. What this story tells about our performance on the home front could consume the space of several editorials. Rut is any comment really necessary? ttntti «M thici#. TTiey are not here dealing with eome technical issue that can b« batted about with careless abandon from year to year, To put off a decUion on Alaska and Hawaii l« sn affront to their citizens. They have signified their desire to join the 48 states as Americana of full rank. They are entitled to know, within a reasonable time and in the language of votes exactly how the United States feels about their application. Obstructing congressmen are play- Ing with more than the future of Hawaiian* and Alaskans. Every year that they succeed in blocking final action detracts from the image of America as a great open-hearted land that welcomes new blood and fresh growth. By these unjustified delays they are suggesting to the affected territories—• and perhaps the outside world—that the United States has become a closed corporation. This time there can be, no pleading, as there has been in the past, that the crush of last-minute congressional business prevents fair study of the statehood proposals. Congress is undertaking the job early enough to rewrite them 10 times and still enact them before the July 1 Republican convention. The lawmakers are up against the gun this time. They cannot stall any longer without incurring risk of rude insult to our territorial citizenry and reflecting harmfully upon the vaunted flexibility of the American democratic system. They have to choose. Views of Others SO THEY SAY 'Boss of the Year' Free/ S. (Rock) Saliba Has Year-round Interest in Competitive Sports Bj CLAUDE K. SPARKS (Coor^r Ne»» Staff Writer) An ardent athletic fan. Fred S. (Rock) fialtba, recently named "Boss of the Year" by the Junior Chamber of Commerce, Is a former Blytheville High School football player, former prudent of the city'B only minor league baseball club and helped to organize one of this section's first professional football contests. His nickname of "Rock" was Ulven him while playing football here. Its exact origin Is not clear, he says. The ?on nf a Syrian grocery and candy firm operator, Mr, Saliba. was born on Washington's birthday,—Feb. 22,—In 1900. at fltgreen. fiyria (now Lebanon), and came to this country In 1906 with his parents, Ho HOW operates a beer, tobacco and candy wholesale agency In Dlythcvllle. Terming himself an "all-around sportsman" In that he has a keen Interest in nil types of athletics. Mr, Qiillbn once played seml-pro- fejslona] baseball and was president of the Blythevill" Giants, a farm club of the New York Giants for several years In the old Northeast Arkansas League. After his graduation f r o m f Blythcvllle Hlph School, Mr. Saliba attended the University of Arkansas for one year and is now a member of the University Booster Club's inter-chapter, the "Wild Hoes." His high-school football career was cut short In his senior year when an Injury took him out of the line-up. He played under Sam C. Coston, u'ho he says started fonlball at BHS and was an All- America n quarterback, Mr. Saliba was editor of the first The Office and the Man The bond which holds society together is the assumption thct one's neighbor, until and unless he proves himself otherwise, Is a man of good will. Similarly, tho mortar which binds the foundation stones of a government by. of, and for the people Is the assumption that It Is a government of laws and of offices, not of men. Too many untrustworthy neighbors, eventually, could turn ft social community into a nihilistic horde In which every man's hand was against every other's. So untrustworthiness must be dealt with. But suspicion run riot leads toward chaos as surely BS does Improbity itself. •Too many unworthy 'm'en In public office, eventually, could make a mockery of government by the people and lend to dictatorship by one of the extremes. So unworthy men must be turned out by the orderly processes provided whenever opportunity affords, and worthy men chosen in their place. But disrespect of the office because one feels the incumbent unworthy, carried far enough, heads just as ^uj-cJy toward tyranny—by way of anarchy. It makes, 7 also, the office undesirable, If not untenable, for the worthy man who should fill it. It is because of these considerations that we are distressed by such Incidents as that of the father who recently refused n posthumous Medal of Honor for his son because acceptance might Infer the President was "a pro[wr party" to bestow the honor. Pushing aside for the moment the merits of this particular case—that the pain of grief asks tolerance for this father's Intensity of feeling, and hat, whatever may be Mr. Truman's shortcomings in office, he is a man of deep and sincere patriotism—the occurrence Is symtomatlc of a dangerous trend of the times- Hate, not love. Is blind. And (he inclination to substitute personal hatreds Tor rational disagreements, however vigorous, leads toward a national state of mind Ul-Mitted to win through the complex and difficult challenges which loom ahead. —CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR once over lightly- A.

Written for NEA Sen-ice (Last of a series on heart disease) As more and more people live into late middle years and old age, a condition known as angina pectoris becomes more common. The meaning at this medical term is simply pain in the chest, but- It is caused by an insufficient amount of bleed flowing to the heart muscle, usually as a result of hardening of the arteries. These blood vessels are called the coronary arteries. When the passageway through these arteries has been seriously rrowed and not enough blood sses thrcuzh them, the needs of heart muscle are not satisfied id it is this blood lack which uses pain. The pain is usually absent when e patient is resting, it is likely be noticed the first time when s heart is pumping rapidly as appens when exercising (climbing or running for the bus, for Peter Ft/son's Washington Column — Some Democrats Feel Change Due Even If It Means 4 Years of Taft WASHINGTON (NEA) — Some prominent Washington Democrats —former New Deal officials now hi private life—are saying privately to each other that the Truman administration ought to be relieved of power and retired In the coming election. They say this even though it might mean having to take four yea-ps of Taft. Reasons given are t h a t the Democrat* n ow in office are and tireci. They've been in office too long. A new broom and a thorough house-cleaning are in order. In time the changes would work to the advantage of the Democratic party as a whole. Four years out of potter would allow a number of the old fossils in the party to retire quietly from public life. Newer, fresher nnrt younger men would step up to tnke their places. They think an Invigorated party Peter Edson punch drunk would emerge to sweep back into \ power in 1956, and carry on the tra- ; riitlonal program of the party of Jefferson, Jackson , Wilson and Franklin Roosevelt. Investigators May Nol Like This Dr. E. U. Condon., former Director of the National Bureau of Standards, is writing a book, "I Was Investigated." It will ridicule many of the procedures used by loyalty Investigators in probing Dr. Condon's past. But it could backfire because some people can't take a Joke when they're the butt or it. Mr. Churchill's Gallant Gesture There is nothing the matter with Prime Minister Winston Churchill's eyesight. He showed this as he entered the Mayflower banquet room to speak off-the-record to more than a thousand press and, radio correspondents in a luncheon meet- insr. Everyone stood up and ap- plmtrted as Winnie came into the room. When he passed Vera Clay. Newsweek correspondent, the Prime Minister stopped and smiled. She was dressed in a gray suit, with a bright red Scotch plaid tarn and, match- in? scarf. With her blond hair railing over her shoulders she made a striking and pretty picture that would mak any prime minister look twice. Bu t obviously fussed Vera and shi blushed. She was. even mnre fusted whei he gallant Winnie stooped, pickei up her nafpkin which had fallen t ;he floor as she had risen from he chair, and handed it back to he with n big smile. The crowd cheer ed and Vera turned as red as he tarn. Later, her colleagues kidded he little bit and asked her for he life story, to be titled. "I Dro[\oe My Hnnky at Winnie's Feet." Bu she swears she didn't do it on pur pose, and that it \vas an accident Who Represented Whom? E. N.

No Excuse to Sidetrack Statehood Bills In a short time Congress will again consider, as it has for the past several years, the question of statehood for Hawaii and Alaska. Few measures are more deserving of favorable action. Both territories have themselves voted for statehood. They have passed every reasonable test for entry into the United States. There can be no legitimate excuse for sidetracking the issue or delaying it further. The statehood question is in danger of becoming one of those hardy congressional perennials, brought up every year and pushed part way but never finally enacted. Some men in Congress are worried that two new states might upset the present political balance between the two major parties. Other opponents object for reasons that do not blend well with the Amerrcnn tradition.

A person who has angina pec- orls must, therefore, learn how luch exercise can be taken with- ut producing symptoms.

THERE IT WAS, right on th« cover. "The Quandry of a Gifted Girl." Picture, too. Of the Gifted Girl, that Is. The Quandry must have left before the photographer showed up. as it wasn't visible.

Her plight ts touching. She is so lousy with talent she cannot decld* on a career. And it was a good thing It was obviously a dull week for Life newswlse, or she might hav» dwelt on forever in her quandry. A quandry, Incidentally, is no place for a young lady to spend her life. You Just never meet any of the Right People In a quandry.

Indeed, the outlook for patients vith angina is not so unfavorable s was formerly believed. Some live or more than twenty-live years fter the onset of their first symp- oms. and the average is probably iBtween eight and ten years. Tn addition to the better outlook which is now recognized, the management of angina pectoris has al;o improved. The amount- and na- ,ure of exercise which can be tolerated can be more closely calculated. Also, there are several drugs, which when given properly, usually help the victim of angina even hcugh drugs do not cure the underlying cause which lies In the coronary arteries. The symptoms of angina cerl-iiii- . cannot be ignored, but when they do develop, it does not mean that life is almost over or that all pleasures are done with forever.

Although my predicament never became a National Problem (for Life deals only with Major Issues), i also was faced with this same situation as a youth, No national magazine ever called me sifted, but the folks in the neighborhood agreed that I was versatile. At an early age I showed remarkable possibilities of becoming a foreman in a boiler factory as my little voice could be heard for thre« blccks on a clear day.

The baby had so won the hearts of those in charge of the emergency hospital that no one dared say, "don't leave her," so the hospital has a baby.
