For fish stories, that takea the doe I West Needs Economic Unity To Hold Own Against Reds A'year or so ago the free nations . were confidently saying that if they eould just keep Western Germany and Japan out of the Russian orbit they would have the resources to stand off the Communist threat.- Now the talk fe not BO'chefcriui. ' • , Basically there are two reasons for the change of mood. The first is that the fre« world's industrial potential — though theoretically superior to that of the Communist realm — actually depends for fulfillment on a high degree of economic unity. And despite the promise of such things as the Schumann plan for European coal-steel integration, that unity seems a long way off. By contrast, Russia, being able to press the Iron Curtain countries into a v tighter mold through ruthless exercise of dictatorial controls, may possibly . achieve B stronger economic empire. It cannot suppress nationalist feelings, but ' many political and economic barriers to unity it can sweep aside at a stroke. Secondly, even the most hopeful economic specialists have not yet suggested how Western Europe can find lasting prosperity without trading with Eastern Europe, or how Japan can get on a permanent economic fooling unless . it trades with China. These were the normal trade patterns before W o r I d War II, and no suitable substitutes have been devised. Certainly the United States, for all its continuing growth, is not prepared to take enough of European and Jnp- Rnese goods to compensate these regions for the loss of old markets. So th« problem is essentially unsolved. Right now this dilemma is partly cloaked by the fad of substantial economic aid from the U. S. to Europe and Japan. But this is a mere prop, not a, foundation. What does all this add up to? It suggests that if we don't find some way to draw the free nations closer and develop trade outlets, and if we allow the Reds meantime to consolidate their economic empire behind the Iron Curtain, the free world will stand in real peril of one day playing second fiddle to the Communist world economically. And that means militarily.. The conclusions are obvious. First Things First in Sudan To Americans, the Anglo-Egyptian Sudan is certainly not a brightly illuminated spot on the map. But it nevertheless has some meaning for them as one troubled element in th« shifting puzzU The Three Rs of th* MiddU Eut The Sudan w«« one of the tor* points in th* rankling controversy between Britain and *arli*r Egyptian tov*ra- menti. Both countrie* now jointly rul* the land, but (he Egyptians have in the past demanded full sovereignty over it. The British have argued that the Sudanese pfeople ought to decide for themselves whether they went independence or a link with Egypt. The coup that brought Premier N»- guib to power in Egypt has sharply altered the situation. Naguib has shown many signs of wishing to cooperate with thfc West and to arrive at amicable settlement of Egypt's differences with Britain. He has avoided the blatant appeals to fanatic nationalism which characterized his predecessor governments. Now, too, he has come up with a plan for the Sudan, Naguib proposes that an interim government be set up quickly for that area, and at the end of that time a plebiscite be held to determine the wishes of the'Sudanese people. Where this leaves Egyptian ambitions toward the Sudan is not plain. But it is just possible-that Naguib understands the ne«d for stability in Africa and the whole Middle East, realizing that without it not merely the western powers but the Jfidclle Eastern nations themselves stand to lose immeasurably. It is just possible that he is enough of a statesman to grasp the realities and to put first things first. V'iews of Others We become disturbed periodically about th« poor spelling and writing of Young America. Few young people today, college graduates and otherwise, can spell anything-above a four letter word. And the handwriting of most of them might, as well be Sanskrit 50 far as anyone outside of their families and friends' is concerned. Time was when great emphasis was placed on spelling and writing In Ihe public schools and colleges. Not so today. 1 Our attention was called the other day to a letter written by a college graduate. Not only a graduate, but In the top .third of his cla-w. The letter made It obvious In several sentences that the graduate did not have the slightest notion of the difference between the three words, "to," "too," and "two." The Blue Back Speller arid Us successprs;' and , the Palmer Method' of improving handwriting were, a generation ago, among the most Important subjects In grammar school grades. Today they don't even learn the alphabet until after they have learned whole words. • There may be some virtues in the changes that have been made In our primary and secondary educational systems — buHs|Fwl.ll always contend that the de-emphask oir>p'cll!ng and writing has been a grave mistake. > The theory seems to be: "Teaoh 'em psychology, economy; a smattering of science and language, and let the rsst of It go." We may be wrong, but we think the whole thing Is n mistake. —Castonia <N. O.) Gazette.

WASHINGTON — (NEAV— The wake of the defeated Democratic Party here In Washington on election ntght marked the end of a 20-yenr era. « A couple thousand of the party faithful had been Invited to what was to have been a victory celebration at the Mayflower Hotel grand ballroom. But the victory was all at Hie Eisenhower h e a d Quarters in New York. Washing- "lon was . a dead capital. Peter EdM Democratic Na- ;fonal,: Committee. Chairman Steve Mitchell appeared before the crowd •vt midnight to say he wasn't conceding a thing. The faithful cheered. But they didn't put their hearts In It. ' • A big Scoreboard across the length of the ballroom was many minutes behind the news tickers, the radio and the television, In posting election returns. After a while the tally clerks didn't even bother to mark up the scores. They were that bad. People started go- Ing home early. Most of the really big shots didn't bother to show up at all. Secretary of Agriculture Charles F. Brannan, who never misses any party, waa there. Sen. Estes .Kefauver of Tennessee was there. And as somebody commented, "He's started running for 1956 already." Chairman Mitchell and the national, committee headquarters staff stayed pretty much In their suite of offices up on the second floor, care- I fully guarded by secretaries and assistants. But the press of the crowd wanting to get In wasn't too great. Nobody loves .a loser. Dczsd Democrats, trying to figure what had hit them, could only conclude that it was everything. Korea, Alger Htss, corruption, Tru- manlsm, too long a hold on office, too much Republican money, too much Elsenhower. "Look at Oklahoma," said Sen. Mike Monroney from that normally Democratic state. "Our National Guard division went, to Korea and all the .vets wife .came home complained. they were in a war they weren't allowed to win. That did it." The rj. S. ambassador to Greece, John Petlrlfoy. formerly an assistant secretary' of state, came home to campaign In the South. He Is a native of South Carolina, and he rose from the ranks In government service under Jimmy Byrnes, now his state's governor. "I had trouble convincing people that Adlal Stevenson was the Democratic candidate," he said. "Too many people thought Eisenhower was running against Truman." There was a lack; of fight all through the South. Democratic Party headquarters had.turned the Tennessee campaign over to the regular party organization of Boss Crump In Memphis, and he rfld nothing. Senator Kefauver aald he had to make his own arrangements to campaign for the ticket in nls own state. Sen. Harry Byrd's defection in Virginia really hurt. Georgia Senators George and Russell'gaye only Hush-hush plot of "Circle o! Fire," the picture that Mary Pickford changed ber mind about, tells of a congressman who bases his election campaign on the charge that a local library contains subversive literature. belated endorsements to the ticket and did no campaigning. Senator Holland of Florida gave up early. So ran the comments. .• Too many Democratic committee chairmen In Congress, too long In office, sat on their hands. They were too tired. They didn't care. They acted as though they really wanted Eisenower to wiri. If so, now they have their wish. < ' . It will prabobiy b« Impossible to find out exactly how much money was spent by all the organizations of the two parties in every state: But if the Democrats spent a total of »6 mlllion-^whlch some of their leaders 'estimate--the. Republicans must have spent three to five times that much. They had it this year, with better organization and better shows. A * few of the more stalwart, younger Democrats, like Senators Kefauver and Monroney, maintained that their man had .made a great fight. His campaign speeches, they said, would be remembered and studied for years. It was recalled at this wake, also, that the Democratic Party had always been a good minority party in the previous Republican era. v .Wait till Ike went to Korea and found hft couldn't end the .war in a week. Wait till he discovered he couldn't end Inflation by a wave of his wand. Wait till he began to try to handle McCarthy and Taft. Wait till Dewey moved In and started to build up his machine. So the party of the Democrats was down, but not out. This was a wake in which the corpse would come to life—they hoped.

Every year a number of people write asking for information concerning one oi mankind's most miserable -afflictions—inflammation of the sinuses. Mrs. B. says, for example, that her 19-year-old daughter is troubled with slnusltles and asks wheth- her daughter's skin pimples lave anything to do with the sinus rouble, and whether the sinusitis s Inherited. "She is a young girl,'" its. B. says, "who should be en- oying life more than she does." The sinus trouble does not have anything to do with this girl's pimples. The matter Is most likely acne and is probably unrelated to 'he sinusitis. As for Ihe second qucslton, it can be stated that sinus trouble Is not directly inherited. Swelling of the mucous mem- >rane which lines the sinuses lets pus and mucus secretion gather inside the sinuses and this produces pressure sensations. If the accumulated pus and mucus can made to flow out by enlarging the opening, or can be washed out, at least temporary relief Is often obtained. The injection of drugs which shrink .the mucous membrane Is oflen helpful. This shrinking may open the passageways temporal 1 ! ly and thus enlarge the air space When the sinuses are chronically Inllamed such simple measures are less likely lo help. Sometimes surgery is used to make a permanent passageway for drainage, Even this, however, does not al ways bring relief and many people continue to' complain even when a wide opening Is present. The sulfa drugs and other preparations are sometimes Injected or sprayed directly into the sinuses with the purpose of killing thi germs there. In tplt* at •v«rythlaj wnick MB spades—the first suit bid by Ihe dummy. The spade lead might no' set the contract; Hirsch knew, bu 1 it would surely be better-than' a club lead. What about the risk of a re double? .Possible, but very unlike ly. South's rebid of one no-trump had shown a near minimum open ing bid. North had been 'able to raise to two no-trump but had no been able to jump to game. Hence neither North nor South could have enough reserve strength for a re double. West obediently opened the ac. of spades, and Hirsch thought ver carefully about his play to the firs trick. Then he produced'the. prize winning play—the Jack of spades This could not ask for a spadi. conlinuation since It obviously weakened East's spade holding. I therefore requested a shift to a high side suit. When a signal clear ly demands a shift, a high car: asks for a shift lo a high suit and a low card asks for a shift low suit. In this case tha signal clearly be done, many people conlinue lo utter seriously from sinusitis and become so miserable and run-down tiat they consider change of climate. Theoretically, the best climate or a person with sinusitis is one n which there is not much change n temperature between night and lay. A temperature of 68 to 75 degrees with the air neither too Iry nor too molsl, but with a little breeze from time to time, would : Ideal.
