Technically—but only technically—• thh ia a setback for democracy, since the Wafdist government had observed the forms of liberty while giving them merely the thinnest substance. In actuality, corruption was deep- rooted in Egyptian government life, and the ruling politicians were not serving tha people. To distract popular attention from this rottenness, Egyptian leaders whipped up nationalist and nnti- foreign sentiment. The great wave of anti-British activity this past winter was a prime result. Naguib is hitting out boldly to correct Egypt's decline. He has jailed Waf- dist leaders and assumed the premiership himself, after an interim period in which he stayed behind the scenes. He is moving to achieve-badly needed land reforms, to eradicate corruption and other evils. He promises that he will hold the premiership just temporarily, until . scheduled elections next February. Thus, far no evidence exists to cast doubt on his sincerity. Naguib has been acting in the real interest of the Egyptian people. But with the best of intentions he may find it hard to make good that promise. Corruption is so widespread that the general may not. easily find parliamentary backing for the course he has chosen. He may be confronted with a choice of continuing his reform efforts himself, or abandoning them in the name of getting back to democratic government. However that turns out, the free world can be thankful that Naguib is one rebel who has selected the field of domestic reform rather than anti-foreign fanaticism to make his case with the people. It is a relief to see one leader take power without adding irresponsibly to international ferment. Independent Thinkers What is this independent vote everybody talks about? You can't help wondering if & lot of farmers don't belong in that category, especially after hearing the way they reacted to the two presidential nominees the olhar day at Kas&on, Mint;.

COURIER HEWt nor Stevenson laid out hii labor program in Detroit and the crowd cheered. Then, on the same day, they enunciated their respective farm program* befor* a crowd of 100,000 farmer* in. Minnesota and they both got the cold shoulder. To be sure, the farmers laughed at Stevenson's jokes, but the serious stuff he offered seldom drew response. For Ike it was worse, since he wasn't wisecracking. He told them he favored 90 per cent of parity for farm price supports, and eventually 100 per cent. Here he was, handing them a piece of the moon, and the farmers stood unmoved —as if he were reading the instructions on an income tax blank. If you nosed around among the farmers later, you found aa several reporters did, that Stevenson's speech actually was more highly regarded than Ike's. But very few came right out and said they were voting for him. They allowed aa how they'd go home,-maybe read the speeches in the papers, listen to them on the radio or TV, and decide later. Possibly much later. Maybe when the results are all in the farmer's vote doesn't look so independent — he's been leaning one way in presidential elections more often than most of us realize. But it would be hard to find anybody more independent than he when it comes to telling you what he's thinking. SATURDAY, SEPT. 18, 1*62 Views of Others Employer Legatee It lias become commonplace in this country for wealthy people to leave bequests of various size* to their faithful and devoted employees. When this happens today, no one is surprised. Ccmplcte- Jy turning the tables, g personal maid recently left her entire estate to a wealthy society worn- man whom she had served. This unusual phenomenon came to light In Newport, R. I., where tha probate court records show that Miss Ida Werner, personal maid for 47 years to Mrs. Katheryne Yoakum Fosdlck of New York and Newport, left her employer »10,000. Should this develop Into a trend, It could help to re-estnbllsh a wealthy class In this country which Is gradually bclftg deprived of one by the income tax. Maids and other domestic servants would help their employers stay rich. They might even give them enough money, or financial advice,'to help them to re-open their large homes. Instead of money filtering from the few at the top down to the masses, It would find Its way up from the masses to the top. Buch an economlo development, needless to say, could take placa only in the United states, where rigid class lines do not prevent bonds of affection between employer and personal servants. Meanwhile, does anyone know of a moderately wealthy maid whq^oiild like to work for a poor but kindhearted family? —Greenwood (Miss.) Commonwealth. Comfort News that the Government is going to be only $10,000.000,000 in the hole this year Instead of the predicted $14,000,000.000 reminds us of the old story ot the six-foot man slowly sinking Into the quicksand.

She's every actress." *ttf Peter fdson's Washington Column — Case of White House Bathtub Reveals President Is 'All Wet' WASHINGTON —(NBA)— President Trtrman's latest attack—the one he directed al the Saturday Evening Post—has now been fired back at him In a nice, polite and unintentional way. The President look his wing at the Post because it had printed an article'charging that the fnrm- ers had been given false information on grain storage in the 1948 campaign. In his press conference, the President com- rr)ented lhat lie didn't read the Post very often because is was wrong on most things. Lnter he added insult to Injury by saying It was always Feler Edion wrong. It just happened that In the same week, the Post had an article by Its Washington editor. Beverly Smith, on "The Curious Case of the President's Bathtub." Smith got Interested some months ago on when the first bathtub was Installed In the White House. He had a terrible time running down the answer. In the course of his research, he came across a remark President Truman had made on that subject four years ago. It. was In a press conference during which the President was defending his plan to build a balcony on the White House south protico. The same objections nrose. the President said, when the first bathtub made Its appearance. jWhy, they wonted to lynch Mrs. Fillmore, wife of the President, who sponsored that first bathtub. That would have put the first bathtub In the White House around 1850. Smith ran that clue down and found It steemed from a great fake H. L. Mencken had put over on a dull day in World War I to spoof the public. Not a word of truth In it. Smith never could find any reference to anyone wonting to lynch Mrs. Fillmore. Instead, he found a voucher dated Jan. 1, 1814, for a $30 expense in installing one large tin tub paihled green in the White House. That would hove been In James Madison's second term. And the first regular bath was installed by <J!d Hickory Andrew Jackson between 1829 and 1833. Who's wrong now? Ex-Gov. M. Q. Sharpe of South Dakota has been circulatn around his state a story on his delegation's Interview with General Eisenhower at Chicago after the convention. South Dakota had gone for Tuft In the primary and its delegation to Chicago wiuited to find out how the general stood on some ol the things they were most interested in. Tile conversation finally got around to rural elrelrificBtion. How did the general stand on that? "Well," Ike 'is quoted as saying, "I think ihe farmers should have lights." Though both General Eisenhower and Governor Stevenson favor ft change in Senate rules to limit fill- busters, tile prospects for getting anything done about it don't look too good in case the Democrats win the presidential election and control of the Senate. The reason being given Is that if the Democrats win, Vice President John Spnrkman of Alabama would be presiding olficer of the Senate, Sen. Richard Russell of Georgia would probably be majority floor leader, and Sen. Walter F. George of Georgia would probably be president pro-tempore of the Senate. Senator George will be ' senior member, with 30 years of continuous service. He will succeed Sen. Kenneth McKellar of Tennessee, who had 35 years service, but was defeated in the recent Democratic primary. The combination of George, Russell and Snarkman could effectively hamstring any change in Senate rules if they were of a mind, to do so. That worm's-eye-view photograph o f Governor Stevenson, showing a hole worn in the sole of one shoe, probably won him a lot of votes from many common people similarly afflicted. With Governor Stevenson; however, this is not an act. He is naturally very much old hat, old clothes and old shoes. There is nothing of the haberdashery salesman about his sartorial appearance. There is a siory around Springfield, III., thnt all the time he was governor. Stevenson never bought a new suit. His wardrobe finally got so disreputable that his sister, Mrs. Ernest Ivcs, told him he would have to got some new clothes. Under pressure, Stevenson went to the store but couldn't find anything he liked. He came home without having bought even a new necktie. Desperate, Mrs. Ives went back to the store herself and bought a suit for him. There's another story about thOEe old shoes, too. A reporter who fancied himself something of a sharp dresser noted the shoes and commented, "That's a fine pair of shoes you have on there, gove nor." "I'm glad you like them," said Erskine Johnson IN HOLLYWOOD Comic Buuy Oreerut on WORMB he saw on Hollywood Blvd. tM* summer: "They were notWng but a tot ol stuffed ahorts."

Sizzled Doris on the set of War- ot spades would fall without a finesse, whereas there was practically no chance that the king of clubs would drop. Moreover West's bid of one no-trump practically located the king of spades in the West hand. After winning wilh the jack of clubs, declarer led the ten of .spades from his hand, and all played low. South next laid down the ace of spades, hoping that West had been unwise enough to duck Ihe first trump with only a doubleton king. As it happened, of course, this hope failed, and South had to give up a spade trick. West got out safely with a heart, and South ruffed. South now had to find some way of limiting the loss in diamonds to two tricks. South decided that East was probably short in diamonds, since he was practically marked with a six-card heart suit. How did South know about the length of East's hearts? West had opened the queen of hearts and had later played the ten of hearts. Jf West had held a third heart, he would have opened his low card rather than the queen. Hence West was marked wilh only two hearts, which meant that East started with six. Having decided that East was probably short in diamonds. South began that suit by leading the Jack from his hand. West won with the king of diamonds, and on the next round of diamonds South played low from the dummy, in the hope that East would have to play his ace, whether he liked H or not. Tills turned out to be the case, and South therefore made his ambitious contract. - nets' "By th« Light ol ** ! Moon": "I wa* never considered c* set for 'The Jazz Singer 1 at sM.

M. D. . Wrltlcn for NEA Scrvlc<> Anyone who has had whooping cough knows that it is no Joke. The disease is unpleasant—to say the least—for weeks or months nt a time, and carries some danger o life, particularly for small in- 'anls and the aged. Even those who recover may lave hemorrhages and bleeding 'rom the lungs or the breathing passages; complications such as lermnnent bronchitis are by no means unusual. When the schools open tn the fall the danger from whooping cough rapidly Increases. A single child coming Into school with whooping cough can spread tt to others, thus perhaps beginning a cycle which may develop into a real epidemic. Most doctors believe that (he vaccine against whooping cough will give good protection to children. It is usually best to begin these injections when the child Is about six months old. Infants or small children who have not been given the Injections to Immunize them, but who have been seriously exposed, are sometimes given a special serum which seems to help in making the disease more mild. Treatment includes rest in bed good nursing care, and special attention to nutrition, especially If there is vomiting. Whooping cough is carried dl rectly from person to person. Chil dren from one to 10 years old are most likely to be attacked, bu oldor oliildreo, adult* uui under six weeks old can catch it. When tiny infants are attacked It is most serious. Vomiting often accompanies whooping cough and when small children get the disease :hey may become starved and emaciated simply because they cannot get enough food. The disease is also especially serious for elderly persons. Couith Becomes Worse At firs', the symptoms seem like those for an ordinary cold—with slight fever, running nose, watering eyes, and slight cough. After a xveck or 10 days the cough begins to become worse and the typical paroxysms of coughing set In. The fit of coughing begins with a series of 15 to 20 forced, short coughs without any breaths In between. The child may get blue In the face and then take a deep breath of air which sounds like a whoop. Several fits of coughing often come one after the other until a small amount of sticky mucus is coughed up, bringing temporary relief. • JACOBY ON BRIDGE By OSWALD JACOBT Written lor NBA Service Tourney P/oy Con Offer Good Tips Today's hand Is taken from the Mini-final* • o< u import*!* lish tournament.
