Typical U.S. 'Liberal- Really Reactionary in Liberal Club With practically everybody from the National Association of Manufacturer* to Htiiry Wallace claiming to op«rat« nnder th« tent of literalism, it wouldn't b« easy to come up with 8 satisfying definition of it; We're not Koing to try here, except to suggest it has something to do with • . » willingness to'experiment, to embrace change, to'keep mentally 'flexible, to neek new solutions aimed at human bet\et- went. *'.'.. ' • . It ought lo be clear that if libtral- ism has any such meaning, it can't b« • properly applied to many groups which now appropriate the label. In this'edi- torial we'll examine just one of those groups. The people who rightfully belong in tliii particular group profess a wish to &trv« humanity, to support measure's for the uplift of ordinary folk everywhere. This suggests an attitude of toleranc* toward frailty, and'* generous acceptance of many human viewpoints in considering solutions lo problems. Yet,.in truth, a prime characteristic • of. the "liberals" we now have under the microscope is an attitude almost th« exact opposite. These are the people who say they arg for humanity,' but who believe only one set of solutions — thtir own — is right. Thus there is only one good national health program, and 1C you are. not; for it, then, clearly, you are no friend of humanity. The man who dares to oppose is measured by that fact alone, and excommunicated from the society of liberals. Ther« is no real examination of his motives, no real recognition that a man may oppose for many reasons — some of them possibly sound. There is really not a great gap between this kind of thinking and the scorn the Russian Communist regular heaps upon the "deviationist." These so- failed liberals do much prating about the patness of other peoples' thinking. Actually, they themselves treasure conformity dearly. Inflexibility of mind, the very re- Terst'of the mark the genuine liberal bears, is the stamp that shows most strikingly among them. With their minds hold rigid by the plaster cast of conformity, these people progress naturally ( 0 the assumption that all good resides in one political party. They extol the two-party system, but they never want anybody to vote for the other party. Theirs ix the party to purest principle, whil» the opposition has succumbed totally to expediency. To peopte iik«! this, the vote of the American «leclovftle on Nov. 4 was short of a disaster. They have a one-party mentality in a two-party country. Are they'liberals? Obviously not. • They mr« really reactionaries — in this «M«, th« re*ction»rit» of the l«fl. And BLTTHEVTLLE (ARK.)' COURIER oth«r kind.

Police, even before the election, barred 61 illegal cover groups endeavoring to conceal their revived Nazi leaiir ings. Yet others managed to get on the-ballot, and Nazis hitting the comeback trail plainly are not through trying. The Christian Democrats, leaders of the governing right-wing coalition at Bonn, and the Social Democrats, the chief opposition, have a great deal of tough missionary work ahead if Wbst- ern Germany is not to backslide next year toward tile dark pit of totalitarianism.

The "great sing- »'"ted by the Caruso to hi! ers" biography, is In full blossom In Hollywood, with the Marjorl« Law- films due WASHINGTON — (NEA>— Before (he new President can do a lick of work on his own administration of the next four .years, he' must clean up a lot of unfinished busi- ess left for him by the last Congress. This in- •cludes asking his new Congress for deficiency propriations ap- to rvter Eda*B pay the bills for running -the gbV7 eminent' until next June 30, wlicn the present fiscal year encis. In nn effort to show how much It could economize and cut back President Truman's budget request for .this year, Ihe last Congress did considerable deferring of appropriations. This may have fooled the voters somewhat. But it w»s perfectly /obvious that sooner or later the money would have to be provided to meet these expenses Which ' Congress hud previously authorized. So now; Instead of being able to start fresh by cutting government expenses, the new administration must Increase them. The amount of this Increase is now estimated at $1.8 billion minimum. "• Biggest item on this list is »SOp million to give members of the armed farces for extra combat and mustering-oul pay. The last Con : gress was -Certnlnty very generous in giving the troops these allow- noble gesture to ances. It was a win the soldier .and sailor , . , The only thing neglected about It was providing the money to meet the payrolls. Now comes the day of reckoning. Another big' hunk of money — 1315 million — must be asked for to meet public-assistance payments to the states. Approximately $140 million of this Is to restore cuts In public-assistance payment rates which Congress voted last year. The remainder is to meet obligations which Congress hoped wouldn't arise. But they did. The Veterans Administration will be in with a similar request for $514 million, it will be to meet Increased GI bill of rights readjustment benefits, pensions and medical service payments. Other deficiency appropriations to be met by ttie new administration include several minor Items—anything: under $100 million being a minor item: $14 million for highway aid, $23 million for promotion of education, and $123 million for "contingencies. 1 Pin money, to pay the cost of claims against the government. All the aboye mentioned Items are sure-shot requests, Itemized in President Truman's revised budget estimate of last August. In addition to these, however, there are a number of other possibles staring the new administration in the face. If fighting in Korea continues, it will be necessary to ask Congress for; additional military appropriations next year. : Some of the government's so- called fixed charges, which can't be reduced at all, may be higher than anticipated. For instance, interest payments may be $116 million ^higher than estimated in January. ' . f ''A few of the eager beavers in More Spending Keuesta Expected government, with pet projects to promote, may be expected 'to conie forward with additional spending requests. Gen. Jimmy boolittle, for Instance, headed an Airport Commission which recommended'a construction program that would cost millions. The government Is now working on the second five yeais of a $500 million Federal Ail port plan auth- onzed in 1946 Nearly $200 million of this sum has been allocated, and 1185 million spent. But .Secretary of Commerce Charles Sawyer thinks the progiam should be stepped up by 8157 million immediately; to meet.air-traffic needs. Congress for years has refused to face up to the Post Office deficit, which is now running" about $600 million a year. To reduce that deficit, postal service was cut down to one home 'delivery a day. That saved S70 million In 1949. But If this curtailed service is restored, it will cost S12a million a year because 'the country has grown that much in the last three years. a little matter President and vice president may have a personal interest. It concerns the exemption from taxation for the special expense allowances now given Mr. One and Mr. Two. If the lax exemption is to be received by the new officials, Congress, will huve to approve it before inauguration day on Jan. 20, 1953. Otherwise it won't 1 apply.

When I WHS R small boy I was sent to dancing school, like many others were. Evidently, the first experience did not appeal to me because the second and third time the date rolled around I developed a "headache" and was unable to go. Needless to say, it did not take my parents long to catch on. ' It is almost certain that nearly every parent will at one time or another be faced with the problem of trying to decide whether some symptom shown by (heir young hopeful—boy or girl—is the result of real illness, or iu?t "put on" or is caused by an emotional disturbance rather than any physical reason. It frequently takes a good deal ot ingenuity and patience, not only to find out what Is really causing the pomplalnt of. the youngster, but also to decide what to do about it. Any number of children will feel a cold coming on. complain of a stomachache, or develop some olher symptom when faced with something they do not want to do. But parents should be careful, under such circumstances not to overlook the possibility that the youngster does really have a cold, appendicitis, or some physical disorder which happens to develop at the same time. The complaint may b« real enough, too, even though it Is the result ot some emotional disturbance rather than a bodily disease. For example, it is by no means unusual for a' child to vomit on school days and b« perfectly well on Saturdays and Sundays. Here there Is a clear case of dread of something at school and th« problem la to find out what and to try lo remedy the situation. Imitation U often UM cauo* o< jeculiar symptoms in children. The story ts told of a six-year-old jir] In apparently good health who vomited every morning. All attempts , lo find Ihe cause failed until it was discovered that the mother was pregnant and had been vomiting In the' mornings. OTHER IMITATIVE REACTIONS Also, in Ihe category ot imitative reactions In children are the tics or habit-spasms. These are. involuntary around the movemenls, usually neck and face, and include such things as blinking the eyelids, twitching the mouth, or Jerking the head or shoulders. They often begm In Imitation of someone else, but practically always in nervous or unstable children. They should not be permitted !o continue since they become increasingly difficult to stop. But scolding and punishment is more likely to make things worse than better. In such cases adequate rest, a good diet, and removal from irritating persons or surroundings, offer the best hope. Altogether, these nervous disorders of children which are not the result of a recognizable disease process are among the most difficult problems with which parents have to deal. • JACOBY ON BRIDGE Expert Use* Car* To Avert Pitfall »T OSWALD JACOUT Wrltt» for NEA Service When the annual National Bridge Championship begin* in Miami at the end of this month, Jo« Cohan, will be on hand to welcome experts from all parts of the country.
