Pa els ate the onemfcs of the stave," Views of Others 'Reports of My Death Were Greatly Exaggerated' Sb Contact With Red Satellites Still Serves Our Purposes The temptation foi' us to sever relations with the Soviet satellite countries Is often great. Btil it is probably one that we ought to continue to resist, in our own selfish interest. .Admittedly, the .sUmliird Krgun)eiil about our needing a listening post in these nations is wearing a trifle thin. .More find more restrictions are put upon our diplomatic representatives as time foes on, and they now have little oppor- tunily to observe and report first-bund the real condition of the satellites. Yet HS one expert on Russia. David Dallin, pointed out recently, we can't vote the satellites otit of existence. So long as they continue as nations with an entity apart from their Kremlin masters, we will need accurate economic and political information about them. Nothing we can get front Communist-controlled radio and press in the Kateimc-s will be u substitute for even, the leanest reports from our own trained observers. Furthermore, one of the chief reasons a break is frequently urged is the hiirh-hiiiided way the Reds deal with our citizcu*, like (lie imprisoned reporter, \Villiair; Oatis, in Czechoslovakia. Yet a complete severance would put uj. wholly out of louch with the vicliiiis of Omummist outrage. As thiiiK.s are now. we can at least make representations in person to the offending governments, and by one device or another keep fair contact with the status of these unlucky Americans. \Ve also can work at close range to effect their release. Dallin sees another handicap in a full break v.ith the satellites. Thereafter we should have to deal with them through Moscow. The Kremlin would beconii: their official agents in international relations involving the United States. Certainly no other countries would likely qualify fur the job as intermediary. And this set-up would snii the Russians perfectly. It might well hasten the final inclusion of the satellites within the U.S.S.H. This process has been going on for a long time at rather slow- pace, and few students of Uust-ia doul>t that the Soviet leaders would welcome a chance to speed it up. Reports emerging from the State Department indicate the question of severing relations with the Red puppets is now under fresh review. This is as it should be, fur there ought to be nothing static and fixed about any of our major foreign policies. But nothing ill the world situation What Is a 'Fast Dollar? What is a " dollar"?

Peter Edson's Washington Column — Long-B^ange Program Starting For Red Men's Iiidependence WASHINGTON—(NBA)—For the first time In American his ton*, there is now a possibility that the U. S. government will eventually be able to get out of the business of taking care of the American Indian. This may not transpire for another 25 or 50 years. But, as of today a stnrl has been made. Indian affairs in western Oregon may be turned over to that state year or few can A flairs.

Tliat way they contract tuberculosis at an alarming rate, live in >rimitive slum conditions and gradually die oft. This has been the result of U. S. government Indian policy tor most of the past 150 years. The policy nas been based on the belief lliat t he T udla n was no good to st a rt with and never would amount, to anything good. Under this policy, the Indians for generations were exploited out of everything except their copper- colored skins. The only white men in whom the Indians came to place problem here is necessary.

The The DOCTOR SAYS By EDWIN P. JORDAN, M. D. Written for NBA Service A sad letter conies from a reader, a portion of which Is quoted as follows: "My husband has been a drinker tor the past twenty-five years. ( Lately he nhs been yetting spells I in the early morning and I think hey are delirium tremens. I wake p about 4:30 A.M. to find him baking and trembling, his eyes oiling from side to side, and his louth working hard as though tying to get breath. "My questions are: Is delirium remens dangerous? Can it be curd? Does a man gel violent with lelirimn tremnes? What can he thing 'one for him? How will I know il my husband gets them? Does he iced a doctor when he gets them?' It would seem that this woman' ins bund Is truly a victim of delir- j um tremens. which Is rue of the penalties sometimes paid by the :hrontc heavy drfnker of alcoholic Beverages. An attack takes different forms, and is sometimes violent and other :lmes merely involves visions of things like snakes under the bed or pink elephants on the wall. It has been truly called the "shaking madness," An attack of delirium tremens Is a most unpleasant experience. Symptoms come on quickly over a period of two or three days, usually during or immediately after a heavy bout of drinking. At first, the sleep becomes broken, appetite is lost, and severe restlessness develops. Frightening dreams occur and often cause the victim to wake up. The most characteristic symptom, of, is the seeing of something which la not there. Often this takes the form of small moving creatures such as spiders, beetles, snakes, mice, rats, or the like. A fever and excessive sweating often associated with other symptoms and signs, mav follow. ATTACK CAN LAST FOR DAYS An attack often lasts for three or four days. Eventually, a good long sleep is likely to occur after which mental and physical improvement (ake place rapidly. In answer to the specific questions, delirium tremens is dangerous, it can usually be cured, violence in an attack is common, absi- nence from alcohol Is the most im- not suscepcible to definite proof. •inrrett cjuld get an argument from critics of the State Depart? ment and Congress—and from McA cow.

And President Milton Eisenhower -' Pennsylvania State .College com"d that we arc using "pop gung 3' ?a shooters" to counter Soviet ; I'opaganda. It Is too early to tell. But on* sure: The prcpaganda phuse of the cold war is entering a stage of even more bitter intensity. The trend may become clearer later THE STATE Department has Just one up to Congress with a request for 170 million dollars (or the "truth campaign" next year, which is a- bcut double the amount voted last fall.

An estimated 400,000 foreign ognnizationsr are cooperating now in the anti-Communist, pro-free world crusade. • * • CIRCULATION OF American publications has been more than doubled in two years.

East should have been delighted to collect any profit at all under these circumstances. He could be sure of a profit if he simply passed four hearts. South would surely pass, and East would wJn the ace of clubs and three trump tricks against any line of play. The double of four hearts was quite unsound unless East was ready to double any other contract. He wasn't ready to double five diamonds, and he should have known this.

The sum total is slil lonly a fraction of what the Communists are doing. There is evidence that they are spending billions on a "hate America" campaign, aimed at splitting the free world, undermining competence and " preventing tic strengthening of Western armed forces. A careful American government intelligence estimate Indicates that Moscow alone is spending $1,400,000.000, or more, a year on global propaganda.
