Defections in De Gauilists Raise Hope for French One of the healthiest developments in recent French politics has hecn the splitting asunder of General De Gaulle's People's Rally Pally. A short time back about 55 of the 118 Gauilists broke awny to support Premier Antoine ,Pinay's moderate government. In April, 25 of them had joined in g-ivinjr Pinny the vote of confidence he needed to get stnrlod. What precipitated the break of Hie 55 waa a disciplinary move by the Gaul- lists against those who had backed Pinay in April. The dissidents have formed a new party, and presumably will continue their enlarged support of the present premier. Normally it could hardly be counted an advantage that France had gained another new party. The multiplicity of splinter parties in that country has long been a contributing factor in Die instability of French governments. Because most of lltem are so small, Iliey can only govern in coalition with others. A change nf heart destroys the coalition, and the government topples. But in this instance, the sizable defection from De Gaulle's party ranks, serves actually to strengthen an existing coalition. It serves, indeed, la shore up the government that in many ways seems the most promising France has had since World War H ended. More than that, the action throws into active political circulation 55 Krem-h deputies who heretofore have been cast in a sterile, do-nothing role by Ue- Gaulle's Policy of opposition to everything except his own near-sighted program. With the De Uniillists, the Communists and most often the Socialists declining to join in constructive programming for Fnice's future, it has been extraordinarily difficult to compose and sustain coalition governments. The attitude of all these group.* has oeen "onr way or nothing." No one would expect anything else from the Communists, of course. But the blind rejection of all compromise, the complete unwillingness to improvise triumphant political combinations, has thrust (he Gauilists and Socialists into the same damaging category. Now we have 55 Gauilists who believe that country comes before party, Frenchmen who are less concerned with saving principle than with saving France. Foreign bystanders cannot help but voice the hope that the example of these patriotic deputies will be followed by others of their party, until perhaps the immovable J)e Gniiilc is left in solitary grandeur, huggin slight his principles and his policy of inaction. Governor Caught In the Dinghy Kver since Pennsylvania's GOP delegation was cmight cniieiismg in 10-10 when Wendell Willkie was nominated,' the Republicans of that state have been hiphly senssilive about "missing the boat." They suffered in 1018, too, because, while (hoy played a key role in the nomination of Governor Dewey, lie lost. "This time," they said, "we must be right." Well, Governor Fine did indeed declare for Eisenhower. P.tit by the time he got around to it, the contest WHS all over but the -formal voting. It is hard to Kay thai Fine made the boat. Jlorc properly one might say he made tliu small dinghy tagging along behind the main vessel. Pennsylvania didn't do it again. Traffic Snowball Roils Out of Hand Driving along in the open country, you've probably noticed occasionally a thin strand of rubber tubing strclchced ncross the highway. The tubing contains wires attached to electric counting devices which are used lo measure traffic loads and permit forecasts of future traffic density. Well, some of the forecasters are ready to throw in the towel, electric counters' notwithstanding. They've decided things are getting out of hand. The experience of the New Jersey Turnpike is one good reason why. That roadway opened in November. It was expected to have nn average load of 23,000 carsdaily by 1956. It reached that level this April. One peak day tallied 70,000. Officials now think the toll road may pay off its revenue bonds in 15 years instead of 35. This will^give you some idea of the magnitude if the nation-wide traffic problem which we are not successfully grappling with. Views of Others Ridgway's ; Solemn Denial H may be Hint, the persistent r«iierai!oii by the Communists of the charge thnt the UN forces have used gcrnu (n the Korean warfare lias raised some doubts even among .some who would prefer not to believe any such thing. There have oeen some Indications that Hint may be true, despite the repeated denials of the charge. Out now cocucs a denunciation of this claim by Gen. Ridgwoy (hat Is especially impressive. ". . . As God is my witness," nUlgway said in Rome, ". . . germ warfare has never been used by the United Nations forces in Korea."

There's no doubt about It thai musicals are Hollywood's best Bin- munition against TV and Ihal the stats who will survive arc Ihose who can do everything—act, sing, dance, juggle and even somersault. "Hollywood's looking for performers like Donald O'Connor." O'Curran said on the set of "Hoad to Bali" where he's doing the one- two-lhree-kick numbers for Bing Crosby. Bob Hope and Dorothy Lamour. "Actors who can't do anything but act are no longer being signed to contracts." Jeanne Crain is still under doctor's orders to stay away from the sound stages.

Arthur Sunimci field nnd Tom Coleman led the opposition to Gabrielson. Their candidate as his .successor was Axel J. Beck, national committeeman from South Dakota.

Mundt, then R representative from South Dakota, and other congressmen practically apologized to Hiss for having listened to the charges against him. Tail's Role Is Clear Sen. Robert A. Taft's role in the new Republican administration is believed to have been spelled out ralher definitely in the first enhower and the senator, immediately after Ike got the nomination. The general said lhat he hoped he could count on Taft's continuing support "as majority leader of the Senate." Understatement De Luxe There was another masterful understatement when Arthur Summerfield was asked if he had any plans for overcoming the Midwest's dislike for Gov. Thomas Dewey of Nev; York. Mr. Summerfield replied, "I hope Governor Dewey will do anything he can to help carry New York." When reporters let out loud guffaws at that crack, the chairman hastened lo add, "I hope you won't put the wrong interpretation on that remark.'"

An Interesting problem la raised by Mrs. E.. who writes Uiat hcr- 7-year-old boy hns been troubled with noseblrciis for the past six years. She says they usually start without any apparent, and generally at night. This kind of thing Is naturally mosI distressing to the parents, but It is lint too nmisunl.

This condition is caused by rr.lavged blood vessels in the nose which fnv \ quentK- ruptuie nnrt result in j nosebleeds ai all too frequent Jn- i tcrvals. Several blood diseases can caiue nosebleeds. If the blood does not clot properly, bleeding is particularly likely (o show up in various openings of the body, including the nose. In fact, a nosebJced may be the first sign of some bleeding disease. A nosebleed can develop merely by going !o high altitude. 1 ?. Other possible causes include violent exertion, acute infections and occasionally tuberculosis or chemical poisoning. High blood pressure may be associated with extensive nosebleeds, though not In children. In such patients bleeding may last a long time and be extremely difficult to stop. It is n question in such cases, however, as to whether the nosebleed Is not nature's way of relieving some of the pressure in the blood vessels. Can He <l»ii:k1y Stopped Most nosebleeds can lie and nre rapidly chocked. Methods commonly used include pressure on the upper lip. (he application of cold to the bi\ek ot the neck, and the insertion ot a little cotton into the nostril itself. Rest in n position halfway between sitting and lying, accompanied by muscular relaxation, stops most nosebleeds rather rapidly. In severe rnse.s it may be necessary in cauterize, or pack Ihe region around the blood vessels in the nose from which the blood is escaping. The occasional nosebleed ts extremely conunrm and usually uu- imporlant. but severe or repeated nosebleeds should bo investigated, probably both by R nose specialist as well as by general examination. •JACOBY ON BRIDGE First Class Defense Is Mark of Champ When the national tournament begins in Cincinnati a week from today. Peter Levcntrilt and Dick Kahn v.ill try to repeat '.heir triumph nf last year. They entered the final session of the Masters Pairs In about 30th place, and came in *uh a 70 per cent game to win the championship. No ch.-implon.shlf> can ever be won without lirn class defensive piay, a possible finesse. As It happened, however, declarer had no finesse and won the trick with the queeii of heart. 1 ;. He continued hearts, and East won with the king. East's club return was taken by the queen snd another heart knocked, out East's ace. At this point Pete Levcntritt had to make a key decision. If he tamely returned another club, the defenders could take two clubs, two diamonds, and two hearts. Declarer would therefore make his conirac of one no-trump. Leventrilt knew the spade situa lion, since his partner had discard- d two low spades on the second and bird rounds of hearts. He therefore new all about declarer's high cardi tcept for the holding in diamonds U seemed very unlikely that ,outh would have as much as th cc of diamonds, so Levcntritt de- ided to push the jack of diamonds hrough at this point. This play was the crusher. No .latter what South did he was round to lose four diamond tricks n addition to two clubs and two icarls. The two-trick set gave East- West a very fine score.
