Snappy numbers, probably I PTA Dental Project Worthy Of Praise and Expansion Distinct refutation of any cynic's, conception of Paravt-Tenchers Associations BS dressed-np sewing circles was the dental clinic conducted at Junior High School here last week. This clinic, the second annual one held by the Junior High School PTA, is an example of the good that can be done by an organization of parents interested in the schools and the students : who attend them. Dental defects are frequently not noticed or noticeable until the damage has become far-reaching. Anything that affects a student's health also affects his ability to study and learn, and hence can abrogate the very purpose of the public school system. And for those who would attempt any admittedly far-fetched comparison of such a clinic to Britain's gratis dentures program, it should be pointed out that the time and effort involved is entirely voluntary. The PTA members contributed their time to record tlie names of those children needing dental attention. Dr. Fred Child, Blythevillc dentist, donated his time and professional talent lo the clinic. When dental defects were found, that fact was noted on a post card which ' was sent to the parents. Tlie card urged the parents see to it that the necessary treatment was received, and so in the end the net result remains contingent upon tlie parents' good judgment. This project deserves not only praise, but the cooperation of all parents of sli-dents examined. ,!t also presents it- S'jlf as an idea worthy of expansion to include more than just .Jmu'ov High School students. strength had fallen away. He was, however, then in the position of having to deliver real evidence of his ability to win a primary contest. A failure to demonstrate this would have added pace to the Eisenhower drive and definitely cut into Taft's backlog of strength. Thus, on the eve of the Wisconsin and Nebraska primaries, Taft was at a genuine crossroads, lie had to win and win handsomely to avoid slipping downhill. This was doubly so because tlie senator himself had called Wisconsin the key to his primary campaign, and his aides had said he was finished if he could not triumph there. To delegates, prospective delegates a n d assorted professionals either in Taft'a camp or trending that way, his double victory was extremely heartening. It enables them to shrug off the old doubts about the senator's ability to win. In states with delegate-picking conventions just ahead, more delegates will not be committed to Taft than would have been with another outcome in Wisconsin and Nebraska. But none of this menus that Eisenhower, in his turn, is now fading, any more thiin Tnft was sagging seriously before April 1. The Wisconsin result was not a defeat for Ike, since he was not a candidate there. It is true the Warren delegates pledged themselves to .support Ike if and when the California governor is out of the race, and that Harold Stnssen offered to allot Ike half of any delegates he won. But no one can calculate what the effect of these promises was on the voters of Wisconsin. No one can say cither defeated man represented Ike. The Eisenhower people may take some solace, too, from the fact that the the combined Stassen-Warreu vote, which presumably falls roughly in the same category as the Eisenhower vole, totaled more than 110,000 greater than Taft's vole. In other words, Taft was not the choice of a majority of those who voted in the GOP primary. Sinea party crossovers are easy in Wisconsin, quite a few Democrats could have joined this opposition. Yet again, there is no way of being sure how much of the anti- Tfl.fl voles was not Republican. In sum, Taft's victory there .and in Nebraska was substantial. It should convince the people who see a boom or a bust in every primary result that this is a horse race. Taft's test in Illinois was a fairly soft one for him. But then come New Jersey and Pennsylvania,:"where Eisenhower stands in well. The two major candidates both have momentum no\v. The crucial swing toward one or the other has not yet been made. But it may not be far off, now that Eisenhower has requested release from his SHAPE assignment and set his homecoming date. What Price Wage Increase?

Peter Edson's Washington Column — Republican Nomination Harder JL For Ike to Get than Presidency Views of Others Taft Proves Himself, But Ike's Return Spells a Fight Senator Tuft's primary victories in Illinois. Wisconsin a n A Nebraska restore momentum to liis campaign for the Republican presidential nomination. It is not proper to describe this as a "comeback" for the senator, since he really had never been any place to come back from. To be sure, a good many self-styled political experts began burying Taft immediately after the New Hampshire and Minnesota showings by General Eisenhower. Rut the real professionals were not among them. As the professionals saw it, Taft was slowed and then temporarily halted in what had been a quite steady advance for him from the moment he started coratling delegates' promises last year. But none of. his very solid Who Are the Independents? We've been wondering about this "Independent" vole which Is so oltcn mentioned in political discussions. It accounts for 15 million ol the 55 millions who mny go to Ihe polls come November, according lo u recent Gallup article in the Democrat. These 15 millions could decide the next election. Mr. Gallup wrote. Just who are they? The article said they include many more younger than older people; are most numerous in Ihe white collar class, and In (he big cities; and are fewest in the South. That is Interesting, but leaves unanswered a question of large pltli and moment: Do the independents turn out and vole? Another Gallup article deplored that in l!HB no ballots were cast by something near half or Ihe nation's total of 97 million potential electors. Tlie citizen who doesn't vole might be Inclined to classify himself as nn Independent, by way of excuse. He could say that neither of the parties offered suitable ranriidales. We don't know whether that is true—we're Just wondering. We do know tlial so much nc.n- voting in n Tree country is disgraceful.

James Duff of Pennsylvania, speaking lor Eisenhower, are credited with having gummed things up for their lavorites In Arizrna. Speaking in Phoenix, both gave the only other Democratic candidate got whatever benefit there was in this support. • N'OW THAT the battle is all over Albert J. Loveland, former Undersecretary of Agriculture, has conn up with this story from his unsuccessful campaign against Boiirke B Hickenlooper for the Iowa senator ship: Loveland had Just finished campaign speech In an Iowa town. A man in the crowd came up and shook his hand warmly. "You made a mighty tine speech," he said, "but I'm goin' to vote for Hickenlcoper. because hes a God-fearin', praylll' man." Lovebnd smiled, said he heard his opponent called a lot of other things before, but never knew he war a particularly praying man. "Oh, yes he is." insisted the voter. "Remember that time when he was in an airplane that was wrecked in the Pacific durin' the war? Well he got in a little boat, an; he kept prflyhv an' a seagull cotne sat on his head that he caught and ate and that saved him." "Wait a minute," said Loveland. "Haven't you got Senator Hicken- loopcr'confused with Eddie Rickenbacker?" "Rickennacker — Hickculooper — I don't care what you call him, he sure is a prayin' man an' I'm goui' i vote for'hitn." KEFAUVER headquarters believe heir rnan may reap a real windfall n California. Democratic machine there has been badly split by north and south state feud. This year Rep. Harry R. Sheppard tried to get Jimmy Roosevelt, Ed Pauley and the San Francisco Malone factions to unite behind President Truman. Then their candidate withdrew his name from the California primary race. That left Kefauver delegates free lo move in and take over, almost heart tricks if he Just sat tight and waited for the tricks to fall into his lap. But six clubs would have been set if West had only passed instead of running out to six diamonds. And five spades would have been set, if West had passed instead of doubling. "It looks bad for West, but the truth is that nobody at the table had any clear idea ot what contract could be made and what couldn't. We were plavh'g blind man's buff instead of bridge, and this disturbs us. "How would the experts handle this type of hand?" If the experts got off to a bad start, they would probably have to do their share of guessing at the end. An expert West would pass five spades, however, since he would foresee that a runout to six clubs would give him a headache.

Paramount studio is the other one- third partner. Cornel Wilde's toting a freshly mimeographed script of "Star of India," which probably will be his next film ns an independent. There's a role for wife Jean Wallace in the story, which Cornel describes as a "thriller in costume." There's also revived Interest in "Lord Johnny" for Cornel >i/H< RKO and Warner Bros.

If he acts wisely at that time there will be no more guesswork in the bidding. South's opening bid of three clubs (not a bad idea, despite the fact that the hand is likewise a legitimate opening bid of one club) indicates n long, strong club suit in a hand that has very little defensive strength. Such a bid usually shows less top-card strength than is quired for a normal opening of one. North looks at his own hand and sees that his own defensive strength consists of a rjossiblc spade trick, die can hardly count the ace of clubs when South has announced a very long club holding, and when North also has four in the suit.l In short.
