Many Reasons Why You Should Hear Marine Band There are a number of reasons — aM of them good — why you should make plans tiow-to attend the Nov. 5 concert of the United States Marine Band at American Legion Memorial Auditorium. '•; In the first place, it Is hoped that the Marine Band will make regular np- pearances here. It. serves RS an inspira- .; tion to younger musicians and pVovides the finest musical entertainment for both youngsters and adults. Secondly, proceeds.from the concert will go to the Blytheville High School , band . . . and the BITS band needs funds just about as badly as at any time in its 15-year history. Patched-up uniform.-! and instrtt ments are evidence of the shoddy condition of much of the b a n d' s equipment. Although it isn't apparent from the seats of Haley Field stadium, many uniforms are just a she!! of their former selves. The majority of them was purchased about four years ago. And you'll be doing yourself a tremendous favor by hearing the famous Marine Band. Two years ago. This group was received with more enthusiasm than any musical attraction ever to appear irt the city. And until you hear the scarlet and blue Marine Band play "Stars and Stripes. Forever," you haven't heard a really stirring piece of band music. Test of 'Independent' Voter Is Hfs Performance at Polls The public opinion poilsfers and many political analysts have done much to foster the idea of the increasingly potent independent vote ns a factor in America elections. But there are reasons to doubt the full validity of this theory. There can be no question that more and more people are telling poll takers that they have no hard and fast political loyalties, that they "vote for the man," that they try to decide each election on its merits. But the test is not the individual statement: "I am an independent." The test is what the'Voter does in the polling booth. If he -has voted Democratic for four or five straight presidential elections, it is fair to label him a Democrat, despite his reluctance to accept the label. Nor is it necessarily proof of his "independence" that a voters has consistently split his ticket, voting one way on president, another on senator, and so BLRJ1BVILLI ("AOTCT COURIER MCWfl w« an* rwcnfa* tfot in this critical age the governing choice U the one we make for president. The t White HoU*e provide* the nation'i true leadership, be it weak or itronff- and it sets the tone for the whole conduct of govrnment. Men looking to their futures put their big chips on the main race. By that measure, most so-called independent voters fall either into the Democratic or Republican category with pretty fair consistency. Pollsters have found that by and large they actually tend to vote Democratic by a margin of at leas£ three to two. Any sensible analysis of the nation's voting complexion must therefore assign these voters to the respective parties • on the basis of their acknowledged voting behavior, Their loyalties may be loose and vague, but their performance in the polling booth is reasonably clear. This does not mean, however, that there is no significance in a voter's effort to classify himself as an independent. A relatively small group genuinely deserves that tag; they shift around constantly and conform to no pattern. The remainder properly should be distinguished from the deep-dyed party faithfuls. For even though they may show marked leanings one way or the other, they are potential converts for the.op- position. Their attachments are not firm. They are not publicly willing to admit their affiliation. In many, many cases they are honestly doubtful, and give serious thought almost up to voting time to switching over. Whichever way they go, they have misgivings. From this broad group are drawn the elements which determine our elections today. Its increasing size reflects the mounting confusion and doubt which plague Americans as they face their crucial voting task in a puzzling world. The party which can most successfully end that doubt and resolve that confusion will at some future time win the more lasting allegiance of a large share of these "independent." voters. Views of Others The Unprofitable Jets Nfost Americana registered disillusionment when the British put the first commercial J«t air lines In operation recently. The attitude In this country was that our air Industry had been sitting on Its laurels while England zipped ahead, abandoning the conventional propeller in preference to the speed and .firrifort of near-sonic travel. - — Most of the reasons advanced by American aviation executives seemed lame excuses. The lamest was the one that went this way: During the war, we turned over Jet experimentation to t h e British while we assumed the lion's share of conventional aircraft engine construction. Theretore, Britain was pushed ahead by our generosity. The inference seems to be that the British unfairly exploited their advantage. By such evasions as this, the U. S. aviation Industry has apparently been' reluctant, to admit that the real consideration is money. The plain truth seems to be that no one has come up with a way to produce, operate and maintain commercial Jet airlines that will earn money. Unlike England's government-owned monopoly airlines, U. S. airlines are spurred by the profit motive. The British seem willing to subordinate profit to the publicity that being first will bring to English products. To a nation desperately dependent on world trade, such publicity is sound business practice. For American business, It might be con- akierrid foolhardy. ^Montgomery (Ala.) Advertiser.

Peter Edson's Washington Co/urn Truman Upsets Generals Attack By Putting Him on the Defensive Peler £d*on WASHINGTON —(NEA)— \Vhat- :ver the effects of President Truman's whistle-stop tour on the voters, political observers concede that his slambang attack on the Republicans did serve to put General Eisenhower on the defensive. Much of Ihe GOP candidate's efforts on his follow-up swing over ~~ the territory the President covered was devoted to answering Mr. Truman's attack. This was R reversal of earlier campaign strategy in which the R e p u b 1 i cans were doing all t h e attacking and !he Democrats nil the defending. It is an old political tradition that voters tend to take more Interest in politics when they have something to protest against and vote against than when they have a record to defend 'and promote. This is supposed to give the "outs" an advantage over the "Ins." President Truman reversed this traditional trend in IflJS by attacking the record of the RepublicaYi 801h Congress. That put the GOP on the defensive. To many political experts this was tne decisive f»e- <or in the Dewey upset. In the first couple of months of the. 1952 campaign—before President Truman took to the road— Ihe tactical advantage was all with the Republicans. They could attack the entire Truman record m'th their charges of corruption and communism In Washington and confusion on foreign policy. Those arc still major issues in the campaign. Bui to whatever degree Mr. Truman's counter-attack against the Republicans has been able to equalize the offensive, the cost of the President's transcontinental tour will have paid off for the Democrats. Official visitors at North Atlantic Treaty Organization'supreme headquarters In Paris have brought hack reports—attributed to General Eisenhower's former military slaff members—on what Ike told them before he came home to run for the presidency. The effect of the reports is that the general told his old associates not to bo alarmed by some of the things he might have to do or say during the campaign. In the battle before the Chicago convention, it was stated that the general's intention was to do whatever was necessary to get the nomination. And after he got the nomination, it would be his intention to do whatever was necessary to Bet elected. In this campaign he might have to do and say certain things which might appear to he In conflict with his earlier and known views. Once he got In the White House, however, it was stated that General Eisenhower could be counted on to fight for nil the principles he has long stood for. Latest tag line hung on Democratic Presidential Candidate Ad- lal Stevenson is, "The good humor man." As to the criticisms of Governor Stevenson for sometimes talking over the heads of his audiences— "talking to them as though they were Intelligent people," as he calls it—Democratic National Committee Chairman Stephen A. Mitchell says: "The only complaints we have received on this style of campaign- Ing come from intelligent people who th'ink they know how less-educated people think." The Nixon and Stevenson political funds continue to bother a good many voters, but many congressmen of both parties are inclined to defend tht.n. One congressman long in Washington—,who does not wish to be identified because of the kickback he would get from home—explains the problem this way: "Nobody realizes what demands are. made on us. We get criticized for' being Tree loaders' at Washington parties, and many congressmen do attend many of these functions, especially when a constituent is involved. "But the other side of this picture lr,n't so well known. Many people from home states come to Washington every year and a lot of them expect to be entertained and fed—a lunch or even n dinner. V--n we can get by with a plate of lining bean soup In one of th3 Capitol restaurants, it isn't so bad. But a steak dinner for four costs a minimum of $20 and our pay is $41 a day. "Also, .when we get somebody from home a job in the government, we're more or less expected to look out for them forever after. They txpect us to lend them money and help take care of their sick relatives. And we're on the sucker list for every charity in Washington as well as back home. "That's where the money goes." the Dot tor Says — By F.DW1N* P. JORDAN, M. D. Written for NEA Service It Is wise to Issue a warning about appendicitis every once in a while. This Is a tricky and fairly common condition, and is probably still responsible for several thousand deaths every year, most of which could be prevented. For this reason It Is safer not to lake chances about any symptoms which might possibly mean appendicitis than it is to gamble that they mean something else. The appendix usually lies in the lower right part of the abdomen. But It c:m be on the left side or It can be twisted so that It lies toward the back. Tile symptoms often reflect its position. , Acute appendicitis does not always cause severe pain. 7n older people particularly the pain may be slight and may not be located where it is expected to be. In fact, the pain Is likely to be pretty much over the entire abdomen, at least at first. • Vomiting with appendicitis 1s common, but diarrhea Is rare. Fever is the rule, though this Is often not very high. Appendicitis ia almost always accompanied by an Increase in the number of white cells In the blood. Cathartics or laxatives art dangerous. If there is Ihe slightest question of appendicitis, the best thing to do while waiting for a diagnosis Is to eat and drink nothing at all. Laxatives Dangerous Laxatives (and to B lesser ex- lent food and drink) produce wavelike movements In the intestines which greatly increase the chances of rupturing the appendix and spilling the Inflamed and germ- l»dcn content* Into the abdominal Most of the deaths from appendicitis could be avoided if more people realized the risks of using laxaUves or of waiting too long before removing the appendix. In addition to surgery, the use of antibiotics has helped greatly. • JACOBY ON BRIDGE Ry OSWALD JACOBY Wrltltn for NEA Service Good Defense Stops Steal of Extra Trick The hand shown today wouldn't be particularly Interesting In » rubber bridge game. South would make his game contract fairly easily, and It wouldn't matter very much whether or not he managed to make «n «tr» trick. When this hand was played in the Masters' Pair Championship in the recent national tournament, however, the struggle lor the extra (rick was just as important »s the struggle to make the contract Itself. Ed Burns, of Minneapolis, who played the South hand, made » valianl attempt to steal an eleventh trick, and it took a very brilliant defense to stop him. West opened the singleton club, dummy covered with the seven, and East properly pluyed the eight. Burns won with the jack of clubs, cashed the ace of spades, and craftily led the nine of spades at the Ihlrd trick, but Myron Field, of New York, was not lo be horn- sn-cggled into playing a low spade hearts.
