Eisenhower Trip to Korea Should Be Doubly Useful , the heat of. the presidential campaign, 'General Eitnhtlwer's proposal to go to Korea-, wa's assailed by the •- : opposition as a "grandstand play' 'and * "Cheap trick to get votes." Even some of his fellow Republicans saw little point in the trip. When the balloting was over, President Truman could not resist onb final political jab, offering his own plane to the President-elect "if you still desire to. go to Korea." Now, beset by crowding problems related to the January change-over in government, Eisenhower is under some pressure to abandon the trip. Tor reasons of time. And. he hears again and again of the physical risks involved. Yet, with alt this, the (rip idea has won many new converts since the election. One is Assistant Defense Secre- retavy Anna Rosenberg, who herself has just concluded a tour of the Korean battlefront. Reports from Europe indicate that first alarms over possible expansion of the war have given way to sober thoughts (hat the trip might prove extremely useful, even if not productive of a settlement. One prime argument for the general's visit is that there is no veal substitute for seeing a situation first-hand. Why take written or verbal reports, filtered through other minds, when you can take a look on the spot yourself? This argument is especially telling in Eisenhower's case, since hb is a supremely trained observer of the military scene. Who i s (o sa y that , 10 ncw or im t r iert solutions will result when such a commander applies all his esnerl. knowledge to a clost-up review of Korea? A second sound point is that the trip is certain to prove a tremendous mo- vale booster for our troops on the peninsula. For long months, during the staie-nmte that accompanied the futile peace talks. Korea set-med a forgotten fighting line. But now, if the trip comes off soon, soldiers moving into « bitter winter will know they are again vemem- hered. The press of home-front business notwithstanding, Eisenhower ought lo stick to his resolve to go. In Korea the lives of free men are in daily jeopardy. Concern for them is business that takes precedence over all other. Churchill Wins Time To Prove His Cose Tht Churchill government in Britain Is now mor« than a ye*r old. Off and BLYTHEVTLLE (ARJT.)" COURnCK NEWS "on for montri» ther« hav* b«wn eonten- tioru that it is basically weak, and pr»dictions that it must ultimately fall b«- fore a resurging r,abor Party. Y«t obviously the time is not yet. Winston Churchill hag just won » thumping vole of confidence in the Hoiifle of Commons on the issue of his govern. ment'* economic policies And, perhaps more of t measure, his party recently captured by decisive margin an important parliamentary seat that had bet-n vacated. The fight for that seat had been widely recognized as a lest of strength.' The trend of such by-elections is always closely watched for .signs thai (ha government is weakening, holding Ha own, or gaining. If all the reports of weakness had been true, the Conservatives ought not to have taken the vacant berth. That they did is viewed in Britain as prelty conclusive sign that the incumbent party is as strong with the electorate as when it was voted in last year. Evidently the people are not as dissatisfied with the Conservatives as many observers suggc-st. At the very leasl, they seem determined lo give the ruling party moVe time than it has had so far to prove its case. Views of Others Televising The Queen A atorm if raging In Britain over the question of televising th« coronation of Queen Ellzabelh II next June. » The Duke of Norfolk, earl marshal, announced lut week that television cameras would follow the coronation procession through the great doors of Westminister abbey, but wpuld iw>t be focused on Ihe two-hour ritual of the coronation Itself. The younj queen may have to take a hand and • decide herself whether to lift the ban, which has brought a storm of protest from press, public and politicians. . Mere are the arguments pro and con: Against Television: The coronation U a centuries- old seml-rellglous rite whose dignity would be shattered by bringing It Into the living room. If there Is a slip-up, an error or If someone U caught jcratchlng his head, 20.000.000 persons will see U. Tlie coronation Is too serious an event to become a public ."spectacle." Also, the television would place »n undue strain on young Elizabeth. For Television: Britain's monarchy Is of, by • nd for the people in this clay anr\ age, and millions already have"'bcen froy-en' out of tlie big event •— probably the only coronation for many years — by the shortened procession route and the prohibitive prices of tickets. The dignified British Broadcasting Corp. can be trusted not to emphasize any mix-ups-oriTelapses by the participants. A little bobble would .make the event seem ill the more human, anyway, and draw universal sympathy. We are betting on Queen Ellrabelh II to take th& side of Ihese who want the event televised. She has never been one lo hide from her people when she. thought they wanled lo see her. It may pul a strain on her, but as Brillsh queen she has come to expect that sort of load. —Shelby (N. C.) star. How to Think, Not What > A school official was talking the other dny about 'his educational objectives. He wanted a »ound mind in a sound body, all right, and he wanted training In the fundamentals. But then he wound up for his peroration and came out with this ultimate purpose: to turn out graduates who took a "progressive" view of thinss. But is that really a legitimate end of education? Ought the schools to Inculcate a particular point of view? If It Is good lo try to standard- ise children into the "progressive" point of view, would it be good to try to standardize them into * "conservative" point of view? Umd howls of anger and dismay from many Influential groups in the community would an*»•«• such a suggestion. And rightly. Thm It what we nre gelling at. Education should not try to make up a man's mind for him, it should leach him to moke It up for himself. Often, indeed, he will want lo progress.

Add 'Cat and Dog Legislation To President-Elect's Burdens TUESDAY, NOV. 18,1952 Snppshot From Ike's Vacation Album Peter fdson's Washington Co/umr WASHINGTON —(NBA)— The nore you look at all the SB4 mil- Ion questions facing the new President, the more you feel sorry for him. It Isn't fair to burden any one man with all these weighty problems. The candidate who really - won In this election was the man who lost. ;i Included In the homework which the new Presl- lent will have to do while resting up from Ihe rigors of Ihe campaign are a vast number of legislative cats and dogs — miscellaneous ssucs. Most of the. ihatlers reviewed in previous articles of this series have been grouped by_ departments of government, or by related actlvl- :lDs. Here nre some of (lie more varied mailers that the New Man 111 tho While House must make up hia mind on: The International Wheat Agreement expires July 31, 1953. There inve been two preliminary meetings of the International Wheat Council in London to consider renewals: Another meeting is being scheduled for Washington in'Jan- uary. Under the first when I agreement negotiated in 1049 after IB years of futile trying, 42 wheat importing nations and the four major exporters—the U. s., Australia, Canada and France—did get together. The Importing countries were to be assured stable supplies at fair prices. The Korean war raised world wheat prices, however, and the result Is (hat this year the U.S. has had to subsidize the export of some 253 million bushels'of wheat at (55 cents R bushel, for total of 416-1 million. The Immediate question lor Ihe new President is whetii- er he will recommend continuing this subsidy, or work out a new arrangement. Consider New Sugar Agreement Of a similar nature, a new International sugar Agreement is being considered. The United Nations Is now polling all countries to see If they wish to hold a sugar conference next spring. The original 1937 sugar agreement -to regulate i production, exports and stocks, was suspended in World War II. lit has been Inoper- ative.'evei-jsinee^ixcept as > statistical exchange agency. Its members have been 17 exporting countries and the two major importers, U.S. and U.K. .The present plan is that the new international agreement would not interfere in any way with the U.S. sugar act. Farm policy'In general will be a major subject for the new administration. Farm price supports »t 90-per cent of parity and soil conservation payments nre now guaranteed through 1954, however, so there Is more time In which to take up new policies. If the war emergency were to end suddenly, however, and farm prices began to slip, hearings would almost certainly begin on the very controversial support of non-perishable crops. Expansion of crop Insurance, now on a limited, experimental scale, and increase of farm credit are two other likely subjects for early consideration. Farm credit agencies are now turning away customers because !hey don't have money to loan to meet the demand. Veterans' affairs will present the new President with some king-size worries. The principal one is what to do about non-service-connected disability cases. There are now nearly 20 million veterans and three million more coming from the Korean war and duly in Europe. If this keeps up, the U.S. will soon be a nation of veterans. Coring for their health becomes and increasing problem. Oij the social security program, the 'present power given lo the states to determine whnt constitutes "disability", for the receipt of benefits expires next year. It must be renewed, or 'power given to the federal government to set standards of eligibility for the receipt of disability payments. Armed Service Powers Expire .Presidential powers to extend enlistments .in the armed services for 12 months, and to order the reserves to active service for 24 months are expiring on July 1. Because of final powers given t!ie President over international civil aviation, he will have a number of iniporlant decisions to make in this field. Hearings on the international afr freight case will reopen in January and reach the President about July 1. Extension of operating certificates for "U.S. airlines serving the Far East must be considered. A number of foreign air carriers are applying for rights to fly over U.S. territory. U. S. Maritime Administration has a bothersome problem coming up In whether to renew the tax exemption now granted on reserve funds for new ship construclion. These funds are now held on deposit by U. S. shipping companies which receive government subsidies for their operations In competition with foreign lines. Authority to draft men Inio the armed services under Ihc Selective Service act expires June 30. 1355. But the authority to draft doctors and dentists expires next, July I. A new plan for the sale oi government-owned synthetic rubber plants to private industry will be submitted to the new President on March 1. And, as a final example, there Is the question of what to do about the Mexican "wetbacks" who cross the Rio Grande illegally to fine work in Texas. The present law authorizing the hiring of limited numbers of legal migrant worker; expires next year.

JORDAN, M. D. I! Is ninazing- that the writer of this first letter docs not know what to do. )—On my last appointment to donate blood to the Red Cross I was refused because my temperature was 100.4, pulse 100, and when the blood pressure was tnkcn It read 158.108. What does this mean? Mrs. M,C. A—This means that you were not well, and you should have taken yourself olf to Ihe doctor as fasl as possible lo find out what was the matter. Some In- fcclion seems the likely cause, though the blood pressure was high also, and this Is not ordinarily related to Infection alone. Q-Is a ganglion serious and should it be removed? H.E. A—A ganglion Is s kind of lu- inor. hollow In the inside and often attached to a Icndori. It Is non- citnccrous and therefore not serious in thai respecl. but it can bo nmio.vinsr. A shnrp blow will usually collapse it. bul it fills up nnd enlarges.agnin and tlie only way lo set rid of It permanently Is lo have it dissected out entirely by surgery. Q—Is it true thai after an emotional injury or shock one may sometimes have trouble with the thyroid gland? Reader A—This dots happen sometimes, though it Is likely that Ihe thyroid Kland (rouble was there before (he shock and merely became acllvc (afterwards. Q—What docs Ihe doctor find out when he gives a person a spinal lest? Mrs. J.K.F. A—It Is presumed that this refers to Inserting a needle into the spinal canal and removing some of the fluid. This test is useful in the diagnosis of a great number of nervous conditions since the fluid can be examined under Ihe microscope and by olher methods'. Also, the pressure of Ihe fluid when the necdto is Inserted Is of value In Ihe diagnosis of some conditions. Q—Can eleclrolysh trealnients for the removal of superfluous hair be harmful to a pregnant womtm or to the child she Is carrying? Reader A—This could not be expected to harm Ihe child, nor the mother cllher. unless the mother Is, ox- ccsslvcJy nervous. ' . —Is it possible lo .have one polycystic kidney removed and the remaining one perfectly normal? A—U is. Q—1 have heard that blackening the hair can be harmful lo a person's vision, l.i this true? D.D. A—The chemicals contained In some preparations used lo dye or blacken the hair have caused difficulty and polsloning In a number of Instances. If you are having trouble wilh your vision, however, it is not safe lo Jump lo ihc conclusion that this i* the cause, tin- UM H caa b« proved. • JACOBY ON BRIDGE Gome Started Same, But End Is Different By OSWALD JACOBV .

In the second room, south ruffed the diamond, cashed the ace of nearts, and then wastefuily overlook dummy^s queeri of hearts with his own king. This established a trump trick for East, but South wasn't-worried. South knew thai he could aiford lo lose one trump and two spades, it was therefore perfectly safe for Mm to overtake dummy's trump, but not safe to let dummy hold the trick (as the first declarer had found out). • South drew a third round of trumps with Ihe jack, leaving East with ihe established ten of hearts.
