Highway Additions Not Sound Practice Decision of the State Highway Com- miasion ta ignore engineers' recommendations and add some 200 miles of poor county roads to the already overburdened (or underfinanced)- state road system Is not in keeping with sound gov- wnmental practices. Motivation for such a move is dif• fleult to discern. Gorernor-Designate Francis Cberry immediately labeled the action an effort to cause him embarrassment when he takes office (the general election approval pending) on Jan. 1. He'H simply have to strip some of tfiis deadweight off, he intimated. And so he should, if conditions surrounding the addition to the state system are as unhappy as the Highway Department's own engineers tell it. They pointed out to the Commission that traffic count on some of the roads is as low as 20 vehicles per day. To make the pill even a little more bitter, the commission put off improving of the Little Rock-Benton road, of the very busiest and most crowded in the state. Reason for deferment of the latter: no funds. To say the least, the Commission's actions regarding addition of the county roads to the state system were peculiar — and one of the poorer features of our democracy which makes a certain amount of "lame ducks" unadvoidable. Sometimes by men who believe they know the one and only way for Eisenhower to win. If the signs are accurate, all this must have left the general considerably confused, and perhaps beset by doubts of the value attaching to the simple tenets of faith he preaches sincerely whenever he finds opportunity. To crown his initial political labors with victory, Eisenhower must shed doubt and confusion and privc forceful notice that lie has learned his lessons well. In other words, from the welter of advice that has showered upon him since nominating time, he must somehow extract the elements of n positive •program that will act as a magnet drawing large blocks of the American electorate to his standard. The people accept Eisenhower as a • man of character and as a man of achievement in certain well-defined spheres. He was nominated because a sufficient number of convention delegates felt the people might easily believe these factors qualify him for broader responsibilities. Whether these factors do indeed so qualify him is now for Eisenhower to demonstrate. He must show the courage to reject had advice while he accepts good counsel, He must put his own unmistakable stamp on the constructive, positive ideas he selects from the avalanche that has hit him. The moment is here, plainly, for Eisenhower to he himself above all. Individuals will be angry at the general for rejecting them or their advice. But the voters will have cause for anger— and disappointment—only if he fails to act forthrightly upon the advice he likes. Only, that is, if he fails to lay before them a program of real promise for America, with the Eisenhower imprint of sincerity and faith marked indelibly upon it. Views of Others A Positive Approach A friend of ours was driving up Highway 1 In Georgia last week minding his O^TI busings and the traffic regulations when he was'motion- ed off the road and onto the shoulder by a highway patrolman. "What In the devil is the matter nrrv?" he muttered under his breath as the officer walked up to his car. This, as nearly as our friend could recall, Is what the patrolman sald^'I've been following ycm (or about 10 miles. You're a careful driver. I want to compliment you and to thank you for helping us krep our highways safe In Georgia- . ." The patrolman tipped his hat, walked back to his own car and drove awny, leaving our friend flabbergasted. <. When the motorist recovered Iron; Hie shock of being stopped and complimented lor his sensible driving, the impact of It all came to him- Here was a positive approach to safety. Stop good drivers and te!l them they're good. Ask them to continue to drive carefully for their own safety and the safety of others. Perhaps the plan should be tried in South Carolina. Perhaps so. Any technique that will promote safety on our hEghvays is worth trying. Rock HilJ <S. C.) Herald. Reai Victory . Ike's Test Weigh Advice, Construct Own Program General Eisenhower stands on the threshold of what may prove tlie most p-uelling experience of his life. He is entering the intensive phase of his campaign for Ihe presidency. Since hi? nnrninntion by the Replthli- cans in early July, the general has heen mapping stratepy and hnninz up on many major issues which lay beyond his ken as a soldier-diplomat. Gvonn in politics and untutored in domrstir matters. he inevitably has had tn listen lo a great deal of counsel. Now the testing time is at hand. The nation will see in the next two months what capacity Eisenhower has for learning quickly _ and from scratch — a host of important things. It will see also whether he has the talent for adaptations in his sixties. His greenness is reaUy a double handicap. Very probably he has had too much sdvice. HP has been pulled and hauled in every direction, sometimes by men who merely want a piece of the nominee for their u\vn selfish purposes, SO THEY SAY Detergent 1 w^if, • ^~ >.j.

It was a mistake tor me and for other actors who arrived on the Hollywood scene when the motion picture industry was trying to live down the flamboyance of the past —the Moorish castles, the parties Uclan after votes. Let's Be Remi>t« All of us in Hollywood have overexposed ourselves to the public, We've reduced ourselves from giants on the screen to off-stage pygmies. The stars of yesterday knew what they were doing when they kept themselves aloof and distant. Their very remoteness created glamor. . A few months ago, I decided to forget the rules that had been set down for me 12 years before, ,1 went to Seaford, Del., for th« Dupont company's annual celebration to appear in "The Cavalcade of America" broadcast before 2400 people. • ..This time I played It like a visit-., ing star.

Correct play Is to win the first rick with the ace of clubs and ead out four rounds of trumps, discarding a diamond fvom Ihe dummy. The fourth trump does no particular, good in this ca$e. but iouth can well afford it, and it nay persuade one of the opponents that he is being 'squeezed. South next cashes the ace and cing of hearts and enters dummy with the kin? of clubs to ruff neart. If the queen of hearts drops, the slam is home. If the queen of hearts does not drnp. South leads his last club to dummy's queen in thu hope that the suit will break 3-3. If so, the slam is home. Tf South is unlucky both in hearfs snd in clubs, he has los' nothing, &ince he is in the dummy and can -now lead a diamond to wards his king. Hence, he wil make his slam if the queen o hearts drops, or If the clubs, break or it the ace of diamonds is in the East hand. 75 Years Ago In Blytheville Miss Effie Lee Terrell, C. O.
