Some Arabs Seem Willing To Chance National Suicide Amtricain must find the Inlriracies of Arab politics generally baffling. Their • understanding: i* not likely to he increased by-Arab King Abthillnh's death at the hum)* rjf nri Arab assassin. Yet th* -A rah world, like every other purl of the gloiiri, cannot, be ignored in Ifiese grim clave of the nnw'pr ttrujrgls between East and West. The Midd!« Kast's oil resources alone justify our intense concern. To appreciate what lies behind the murder of the King of Jordan, we have to recORiiir.e that the Arab people* today are In nomewhat 'the same social and nationalistic ferment which has gripped the Asiatics since World War II This mean* there is strong resentment against all vestiges of colonialism, «nd against absentee ownership, foreign concessions and other marks of outside •conomlc or political influence. Britain is, of course, (he dominant foreign power in the Middle East, and consequently is the chief target for the fiutlinrsts of aroused Aral) feeliiiK. Insofar as the United Slates shows sympathy for Britain's viewpoint, we, too, are shnuted at. America is disliked also for its evident. leaning toward Ihe Israeli cause in the Palestine wjir. The establishment of the Jewish state amid.Arad lands was viewed by Arabs as an unforgivable intrusion upon the solidarity of the .Moslem world. Britain did not sidu wiih the ,k>«s in lhat dispute, hut fines then h;i.= In-™ distinctly friendly toward Israeli's national ambitions. Tiie current.-- of- anti-BritiVh, anti- Jewish and. to some extent, anti-Ame.ri- <-an fr-cling have built jut,, a pmvi-i'ful haired thai, is now being magnified by Arab extremist? egged nn by Communists. It i.s this t'anatieal element which accounted Cor King Abmillali's assassination. Abdullah was a g,,,,(l friend of >l !e United Stales and Britain. There were signs thai he ciid not share the general Arab antipathy toward the Palestine .lews. On both these scores he was \ ul- nerable. It was almost inevjt.-tbie. in the present state of mind of the Arab fanatics, that he should hnve been mai-krd for death. Like that other friend of the West, the assassinated Premier Hajniara of Iran, Abdullah was- a man of diararu Y and strength. His removal from the srene is clearly a real loss to the Wc.-lern nations. The Communists will ije Ihe l; ljj. mate gainers, if only because they bene- fit wh>n*v«r unr«»t «nd disorder t»ke command and utrong men fall. The Arabs certainly gre capable of rending the dismal record of life in Com- munist-conlj'olled countries. Yet, Ironically, their extreme nationalists apparently are willing to risk national suicide to get ride of British and other Western influences. Tjjcy eeem to regard Moscow as the lesser evil. It's bard to tell whether this measures tlie depth of their emotionalism or their ignorance. But it's a sad fact both for the Arabs themselves and for the Weslorjj countries which ought to L« their firm friends. Rare Among the Military Secretary of Slate Dean Acheson pronounced the finest, epitaph for Adm. Forrest Sherman, the late Chief of Naval Opera I ions, wlien he labeled him an officer who was capable of thinking beyond military matters to the. underlying — and governing—political consiflera- tions. America ha.s not hail loo many generals and admirals who could remember, at the critical moments, that wars are fought for pnlilk-.il inn-poses. Sherman uiiilnrsloQi! that, and it made him a man of the highest value to his country. President Truman obviously will be hard pressed io find a suilable replacement. Jitil his search should lip. guided by an insistence upon that same rare quality of political sagacity. Views of Others Price-Cutting Ends— What Poes It Meari?

Peter tdion'i Washington Column — Frustration' Keeps Many Expert Businessmen Out of Washington WASHINGTON INEAI—Mobiliz- ation Director C. I. Wilson once <sked « business associate he had known for many years t/» come o Washington and help him out on Ihe three-year natirmal defense production Job. The reply he got was something like this: "If you're fool enough to give ip your Job, to give up your home, "^ to clve up your time—and go to Washington to live in nn apartment, to work six days and si ,v nights a week. and to be smeared all over t h e p I a c e- If you're fool enough t o -»—. • i • do those things.

It is to recruit competent experts with wide experience n some highly technical field like steel production or distribution, lor emporary Jobs with the Rovern- ment. Plenty of second si ringers "an he hired. Wiiats toiijth is get- ing good ones. Edwin T. Oibson. retiring as acl- ng head of Deleave Production Administration, says there are three principal reasons why most busi- lessmen dodge the draft for de- ense Jobs. Mr. Gibson himself is executive vice president of General ^oods in private life. Despite the ace that he was fil years old anrt lad two heart attacks, he came to Washington last February to help set up DPA, and get it goint. It is now a going concern. Mr. Tibson rinesn'l. [eel that in the resent state of his health, he is he right man "lo have to make touch decisioiV riizhl. up lo six -'clock every evening." he he put* It- So he Is stepping a*ide for I younger, tougher Manly Fleishmann. But Mr. Gibson himself will slnv on as an adviser and as chairman of Ihe International Materials Conference. They Have the Chief Objection* His three reasons why businessmen won't take Washington jobs are: 1—They are needed by their companies, who won't release them. 2—They dnn't realize there's an emergency. :l—They are frustrated by Washington. This last point, which Is the most intangible; is also probably the most important. Businessmen aren't trained In. politics. They can't understand why. if something has to be done—it has to be cleared with Congress, the White House. State. Defense. Commerce. Aericulture. Interior, Labor and (he Attorney General. 'I'hen when a temporary government official dors back some course of action he considers necessary for the good of his country, he get,s beat over the head unmercifully. The chastisement which C. E Wilson and Stabilization Director Eric Johnston have recently Uken from the National Association ol Manufacturers is on a par with what President Truman wrote . to the music critic. .\fr. Johnston reports (hat some business friends he ha.s known' tor years nnw wont speak to him when they pass. Mr. Wilson had Sidney Wciijber? and Gen. Lucius D. Clay as his assistant* [ O r a time. But they refused to take the punishment and wpnl, home. In tryine to replace them, Mr. Wilson gets called "a fool." There is of course a fourth reason why businessmen won't come to Washington. Government doesn't enoueh. Top government salaries— outside of cabinet officers anrt ambassadors are slT.rino. But most government bureau heads are in the tBOOO to $12.000 ,bracket. Ant! men whom private industry would pay JIO.OtK), the government expects to hire lor MOW) lo STSOfl. System Permits Keeping Join No smart, rising engineer o r executive is going to give up his chances of promotion with his company to come to Washinrton to work and Jive in shoebnxes for le.-.s mnney. To meet (.his situation, Consrrcs, has provided for a limited number of "WOC" «nd "WAE" in Ihe defense agencies. The first arc "without compensation" cmploves. They get $1 n year, plus transportation and sis a day livinii expenses. The "WAE" get $50 a day plus transportation ajid S15 a day keep, "when actually employed," Tnere are now -112 woe's in the defense agencies under Mr. Wilson. There are about 300 V/AE's. They get lo keep their private industry salaries, paid by their companies. In return, the companies agree to loan some of their best men to the government fo rpcriods of from six months to a year. But n few of the biggest companies wont' allnw any of their executives to work for the government. Thoma.s S. Nichols of Baltimore. president and board chairman of Malhieson Chemicals, is largely responsible for working out a system of relaying business executives in important defense jobs. Mr. Nir'nnls has recently returned to his company after a year's service as Deputy Administrator of National Production Authority. NCI self-respectinc man will fake a government job in f.he fnie of these acrusat.ioas. But. as Mpnly Fleishmann and as Daviri Lilicn- thal. former chairman oj the _ Atomic Energy Commission pr-nt i out, such men are an a'n>nlu»r nr-r- rssity to the success of the ticfcn.se rftorC once over lightly- aiiack by ihe whole affair.

Peritonitis sets it's name from the delicate tissue which lines the abdominal cavity, (bat cavity which contains the stomach, intestines, liver and other organs dealing prin- 'uw!!y" with digestion. This lining is called Ihp peritoneum. Most cases of peritonitis or inflammation of this lining result from the escape of 2erms Into Ihe abdominal cavity from the stomach intestines, or appendix. There are many ways In which peritonitis ran arise, 'one of the common ones is Ihe result of the rupture of an inflamed appendix; this is the main reason whv it is so rfaneemtis to let appendicitis run on without removing the organ.
