Now the re. epected elde'r statesman, Edouard Her- • riot, former French premier, is trying to block approval of the treaty getting up a Europtan army of six nations. :'-- * This pact alrea'dy has been signed by " France and the five other participants. But their parliaments must now ratify r ,ft£Herriot demands drastic changes be. ; fore he and his followers among the Rad' lea! Socialist Party, some 70 strong, will endorse.the agreement. . ' .The changes he suggests are design- r «d' to quiet French fears over the industrial and, ultimately, the military re- !viyal of Germany. But the French par- • liament cannot • make them. The six signatory powers would have to negotiate a totally new draft treaty to incorporate new features. And this migh't .take endless months. ' Premier Antoine Pinay, who already has achieved no small reputation for statesmanship because of his economic program, has wisely rebuffed Herriot and urged ratification of the treaty as it stands. But that does not eliminate the prospect of trouble, since in a close di" vision the 70 Radical Socialist votes could spell victory or defeat for the pact, There is nothing new, of course, about the fears that spawn these "counsels of caution," as Pinay calls thtm. But it is regrettable that French leaders cannot find a consistent path to tread. Only a month or -so back, heartening evidences developed of a real push toward political unity for Europe. Far- sefcing leaders in two or three countries were calling for action now on a European assembly, injecting a note of urgency in their appeals. No one imagined that in consequence French fears of Germany had suddenly ' evaporated. But it was hoped "that had been put into more realistic frame and would no longer lead to unreasoning cries for delay and super-safeguards. Herriot has now dashed that hope. ... The worst part of it is that Herriot's stand is but one of several signs of swelling French nationalism. That resurgence could hardly come at a worse ,time for the safety and economic well- ^beingpf the whole European community. Premier Pinay, Defense Minister Pleven and other forward-looking French statesmen must go over the heads of men like Herriot to convince the people of the great need for unified defense organization! For apparently only ,the people can place the counsellors of 1 caution in an untenable position and thus take the starch out of their 'opposition. It 'k BO *uy Msignment. Campaign Candor Signposts New Era . Thii pr«ild«ntiftT campaign i* uni-' qu* on many counts, Not the least gtrik- ing featur* it the candor it h»g produced 'about the private live* of th« candidate. When b«for« have wt had a full rundown on the health of the two nominees T When bfcfore have w* had a thorough accounting of their earnings? Perhaps by th« time this ihow ends on Nov, 4 w* shall also have been treated to an exhaustive detailing of their r«- §p«ctiv« performance* at all leveji of achool. Then we may know not merely .General Eisenhower'* blood pressure, but how he did in second year high school history. And wt may learn whether Governor Stevenson was any good at mathematics. No political experts ari contending that thi* kind of information cuts deep in voters' minds. The election is not likely to turn on the size of Eisenhower's income tax, or Stevenson's operation for kidney .atones. But this sort of openhanded treatment of the candidates' lives does nevertheless serve a highly useful purpose'. By laying .out the facts, for all to see, it deprives the rumormongers of some v of. their richest material. It eliminates some of the sidfe-paths into which an election can be turned. In so doing, it brings a little closer the day when American -presidential elections may be decided on the real issues and the true merits of the candidates. We still have a long way to go, 'but even the most'halting stride forward is^elcome. Views of Others Out Of This World It U hard to-believe the deliberations of the U-natlon parliamentary conference on world gov- cernment aedoualy were Intended to apply to this planet. .,< . ' - ' - x % For' the'result! of those deliberations are so remote from present-day, realities that they could not possibly have any 1 bearing on' the world situation in th« lifetime of. anyone now living. > . Recommended by the'conference was Immediate and; world-wide disarmament at. a time when all the nations are engaged in a frantic effort to accumulate .weapon* and armies' as rapidly M,poMible, ( Recommended was a prohibition against atomic weapons at a time when all nations possessed of the know-how are adding to Ihelr. stockpiles as fast 'as they can. Recommended was a world trimunal of arbitration to handle International disputes when the ,United Nations ha* demonstrated the 'futility of arbitration In Korea and~the Hague court has washed Its hands of the Infnlan oil dispute. Proposed . finally was , a-United Nations cltl- xenship for every person in the world nnd arrangement* to make the charter and laws of the UN binding on every Individual. Not for this world Is that program. Not In the lifetime of anyone now living, at any rate . —Oklahoma City Oklahoman. Greedy and Miserly A reader complained to us the other day that she wu completely fed up with two kinds of' new« »torie». One was that of the miserly old man or woman who lived in a state of apparent penury , and died in rags In a horrible old house which, when searched, proved to. hold a hoard valued high into thousands. The other,Is that of.the man or woman who has fallen for one of the iwlndles almost as old as the sun. There's the Spanish princess, for example, who knows where th« rhoney is. If money Is advanced to get her out of prison sh« will lead her rescuers to affluence. There must have been a million of these in the last century, none of whom existed. Then there's the person who meets a lonely soul in a restaurant or department store and telh of finding •'hoard of money. If the woman will advance a certain sum they will pool It all and divide. "Why will people fall for such tales?" ask OUT re«der. "And why will those old misers and hags hoard like that? Cant people have a littl. •ense?" We don't know. Lots of people don't have sense. Some spend all their money faster than they get it and end up poor _ or Inherit annuities. Som« are sensible and thrifty and have good time* pleasantly as.they go nlonj and taxes fake the backbone out of savlngi. But life Is short and wnse helps happiness. '•Neither riches nor poverty give me, O Lord- prayed the Psalmist, The mldrtle road Is fun, too. —Mattoon (ni.l Journal-Gazette.

Truman, past president ol the American Academy of Peter Ed ton's Washington Co/urn Air Force Brass Doesn't Agree "Operation Strangle' Is a Fizzle WASHINGTON .—<NEA>— When Gen. Lemuel C, Shepherd, Jr., commandant of the Marine Corps, made his now famous remark about the U. s. Air force "Operation' Strangle" being .a fizzle in Korea,: he added that, . 'of, he didn't want to'start "an argu- at- reter Edm conference loud laugh, for it was perfectly "obvious that the statement would bring a quick bellow of rage from the Air Force. It did, next day, from no less & person than Air Force Secretary Tom Flnietler. General Shepherd had originally mads most of the qualifications which the Air Force came up with. It Is.-of course, almost Impossible to shut off all supplies to an enemy, by aerial bombing and strafing. It's impossible to stop all truck movements a't night. The classic proof of this was In Italy during World War II. aer- many'had 25 divisions in northern Italy. All thier supplies were com- fng through the Brenner Pass. This pasi was bombed almost around the clock. Yet enough supplies got through to keep the Germans going and to -keep them fighting. _- Worke'lV Pockets Jlnglo ' Average hourly earnings of U.S. factory.workers have kept Just a little bit ahead of advance*in the cost of living slnde the Korean war broke out, according to Bureau of Labor i Statistics. Calculated 'on . reports from industries with 13 million employes, the average hourly Income, including overtime and other premiums, was J1.66 ori Aug. 15. On .June 15, 1950, It was $1.45 an hour. This Is a U per cent gain. In the same period, BLS consumers' price index has risen from no to 191, a 12 per'cent gain. Tho catch on the hourly earnings fig- not really representative. Wage increases In the a'ppare] industry have been only about 7 per cent. In the defense Industries they have been nearly k -i7 per cent, REA Phone Pr«jr»m Is Popular The rural telephone loan program: of the Rural Electrification Administration has proved so popular that HEA may be out of money to' lend; shortly after .the.first of Ihe year. The original allocation by Congress was for »25 million plus a $10 million contingency fund. Twelve million dollars of this has already been-advanced on approved loans with a face value of $04 million. Applications are still coming In faster than they can be processed, with/nearly 600'now on file. The first 190 loans approved were to bring service- to' 131),000 families previously without phones, plus Improved 'service to 115,000 families with Inadequate aefVice. , The first loan repayment to fall due was made 6\i time, two years after the loan was granted to the Wilderness Telephone Co., of Chancellor, a. U..S. Chamber of Commerce is opposing, the rural phone program as unfair .competition'to private enterprise. , Some Duplicity Here .Most popular stories in German magazines these days .are flatter- lng ; accounts of the private livts of ex*Nazi leaders. The latest series of this kind'to find wide reader appeal In Germany Is a picture magazine article about former Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels and his wife Emma. The pictures show him with his net, collecling butterflies, and giving candy to children,* like a nice guy. A report on this hew trend In German journalism haa just been made to the State Department by Wilson Hicks and.Will Connell, two U. S. picture magazine editors who were sent abroad to survey West German publications. ' To keep American,^ officials in Germany hnppy, the German editors describe the former Nazi officials as bud men in the text, but ihe pictures alwnj's portray them There lsn'ti"«nythlng American or Bother Allied officials could 'do about censoring , these German publications even if they'wanted to Keep the Boy.

Written for NBA Serrtc* ! Nothing would make this column more popular than to announce lhat the writer had 'the answer to the common cold, and that by following some . simple directions or taking some easy remedy, readers could count on avoiding this annoying afflectlon In the future. Perhaps the time to make such a happy statement will come,- but at present' I shall have to remain In th« doghouse. Scarcely a year goes by without the announcement of at least one new "wonder" cure for colds. Naturally, we are all so eager to find some way of-getting rid .of this miserable disorder (hat we are eager to believe the claims made for practically anything. I In spite of the enormous number of "cold cures" on the market, the stalement that "no substance or combination of substances available at the present can be relied on to prevent or cure the common cold" still holds true. In the face of this "scientific" view, nose drops, inhalants, liquid and solid medicines, gargles, special diets, lemon cures, and a thousand and one other treatments will be used all winter. Perhaps something really good will be found »t any time. Anyone, however, who has ^Hved • through the past few years Vtll b« some- wh*t atopUc«J (tout uy anr "dis- ery" until it has been tried aad tried again. . ' The supply of moisture to the nose and throat by means of steam Inhalations. Is probably of some help during 'the early—and I mean early—stage of a cold. Alcohol (taXcn Internally) remains a favorite with some, but there Is considerable doubt as to whether U really helps tb* cold or merely makes it easier to forget. ''.'.-. Cathartics or laxatives are hardly desirable unless needed for other reasons, and if used to extremes these may cause too much loss of fliildj from the body. | Vaccines Come Up Agate In the last year or so vaccines for colds—given either by Injection or by mouth—have been suggested again. But the fact remains that careful studies of such methods of cold prevention have been tar from convincing. : The only thjng which has really stood the test of time M far i» rest in bed. In all probability « everyone went to bed at the first sign of a cold and used ite*ra inhalations, their colds would no* last so long. Such action would so cease to expose others to their colds and therefore cut down on the numbers of them going around.

For "AdulU Only" THE Hollywood Production Code, under which American movies are censored voluntarily, has outlived ts usefulness. Producer David O. Selznick hinks so and I agrr - 'i him to a point. It's Selznick's theory that."U a producer goes overboard on the question of~morals, there' are always postal regulations and police nterference he must cope "with." That's fine as far as adults are concerned. But many .things detrimental to juvenile minds still would reach the screen. The;only oglcal answer is 'Adult Only" movies.

Having arrived at his ambitious ;ame contract, South might play he hand in wrong manner by imply riot playing It at all. In ither words, he might expose his land and Concede that he must ose -one trick in each suit. This would save time, but it would be sheer cowardice. Another bad way to play the hand, Is to go at it in n verj .tralghtforward style. This permits he opponents to make a mistake but:does not actually hejp them o'db so. The chances are that the opponents will take their -four ricks. The right way to play the hand s to win th'e first trick In dummy rlth-the ace of hearis and return he jack of clubs from the dummy. This Is not sure-fire, of course, but it gives East an excel eht chance (o go wrong. There's nothing like helping the opponents . . to make a mistake. East may very well think'that declarer plans a finesse, and he will therefore play a low~club to et South make his guess. Actually, is It happens. South has no guess, and he will win the. [rick with lUt king of clubs. Having stolen his club trick, South is now on sure ground. Declarer can now lead a dia rriond, towards dummy arid East should refuse that first diamom rick. A heart is ; next returned 'rom dummy, and East must take his king. East should lead n trump an< West should let south win the "firs round of that suit.
