Look on the bright sldel Kids really keep out of more'trouble than they get Into. Teaching of Democracy Can't Be Whol !y Objective , ; Educators are still debating: the big '. question of how much '{Americanism" should be taught in the country's schools in tha interest of good citizenship. A good many believe as does Dr. Wil" liam F.' Russell, president of Teachers . College at Columbia University, who - said recently: "The best way to beat a Communist >is,to face him with citizens who know - and love their country, who both umler- ,,Jstar|d and revere its irleals, and who .ican 'recognize these ideals and apply " them in the ordinary situations of every- 'day life." • Such teachers feel it is the schools' job to create this kind of understanding, and that consequently they must develop programs to promote stud y of U. S. ideals and principles. Others say the function of any school system is above all to remain neutral arid objective, to steer clear of political turmoil, to take no sides in any phase of life. That's the way many European countries have it. The goal of objectivity is wholly commendable. But there seems to be good reason why it cannot be adhered to perfectly in teaching young Americans about thtir government. Long ago.we made a subjective decision — as a people — to have a democratic form of government. To word well, such a system pro-supposes a well- informed, educated populace. Education for all is thus an indispensable element in democracy. How else can you get sound popular choices? That education ought to include a highly critical look at the very system we live by. We should be able to examine honestly all the faults of democracy in practice.. And we should be able to study all other systems of government coolly, noting strong points and weaknesses. Communism, today the most powerful rival system, unquestionably should be on every teaching agenda in America. But that does not mean that teachers should be allowed to advocate communism, to undercut our own system. There is a huge difference between explaining and promoting-. But, by the same token, we should not hold our teachers to simply explaining the American approach to government. For we want our budding citizens to go forth not as scholars in compava- tire government but as defenders of a faith, champions of the free system we And most tducators ar« agreed wf cannot do that .if w« §t»jr strictly, neutral, In thi» on* fundamental field, at l«*at, w» mu»t promot*. To do to may riolaU tb« notion ot pure scholastic objectivity. But w«'r« not now and never have been living In a world where on*' can afford'to be neutral about hii 'own kind of government. • s And nobody ha« tuggested to far that any agency of our society is better equipped than the school to do the Job. No to Wisely Waits For Ike's Word The members of the' North Atlantic Treaty Organization have wisely decid- , ed to put their 1953 defense planning for Europe on a tentative basis until, they can hear what General Eisenhower proposes for NATO, The NATO council is set to meet Dec. 15 to set next year's military goals. But it now appears a second meeting, in March, will be he-Id to modify or confirm those goals in the light of later American developments. Except as a preliminary, the Dec. 15 dale seems utterly impractical, anyway. NATO, makes up its plans for the calendar year. But America, chief source of economic and military aid, votes this ' assistance by the fiscal year — starting and ending in July. Thus, in December, NATO can never know what amount of help to expect after July 1 of the following year. The participating countries can measure the first six months, of course, since money for such aid always is voted by Congress in the previous spring. But that's not enough of a guide. This situation 4 plainly is aggravated in a presidential year when a changeover occurs, as is the case*, this time. NATO cannot expect Eisenhowtr to disclose his intentions — except in the most general way — before he has authority to make decisions. Hereafter, therefore, the NATO planning sessions before the year-end should be viewed as strictly tentative and exploratory. The real decisions must necessarily be delayed until the shape and^ size of the American budget for the coming fiscal year is known, and until the lines of authority in the U. S. are fixed.

It will keep us there unless we full for the ever-disastrous expedient of killing the • goose to get all of the golden eggs at once. The excessive taxation to which,business Is now subjected Is a frightening Indication that this is exactly what Is happening. It doesn't take a slide rule artist to figure out that this kind or taxation, by taking the profit out of efficient, progressive operation, can eventually kill the dynamic quality of our enterprise system. .Waste and inefficiency will supplant the drive to get ahead as individuals seek to cscnpo Ihe penalties of "too great success".

Just recently, the Dow Cherni- cnl-Detrolt Edison contract was modified to bring in 11 more public utility nnd manufacturing companies United' fi-om States. the northeastern Among them ..arc power companies of New England, New York, I^ew Jersey, Wisconsin, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Toledo and Philadelphia. : . In substance, these research projects—with the supposedly best brains of public utility, engineering and chemical companies—have a challenging assignment.,It Is to see if they-can devise new, better and cheaper methods for the production of fissionable materials for = government use, with the production of electric power generatec erriment-dwned plants lor the production of uranium .and Plutonium, vast quantities of coal and steam- ;enerated or hydro-electric power are consumed. The' heat generated in separating,6ut the fissionable materials Is a waste'product that must be dumped. , In the commercial power plants, his beat-from the atomic reactors, or piles,, .would be used to generate steam. The steam,would be used to generate electric power. .The Plutonium or ' uranium manufactured in' the rea'ctor would then be sold to the government. All re^ actors : would be of the breeder type, producing fissionable material faster than it Is consumed. Walker L. Cisler, president of Detroit Edison, has reported that if purified uranium cofcld be sold to the government at »56 a pound, private Industry would be justified in an Initial investment ol $T7 per kilowatt, f the same • as In' a conventional steam .plant today. What uranium--produced In its own plants now costs the government Is kept a military secret. The problem of shielding "an atomic power plant to prevent dangerous radiation is formidable. Whereas a conventional steam plnnt can be located on 100 acres, 1000 or miore acres might be required for an atomic plant. The Dow Chemical-Detroit Edison project has proposed to meet this problem by locating the generator on a barge or ship. Shielding would be provided by steel tanks filled with sand and water. Electric power trom atomic energy Is now being produced on small scale at the AEC ^reactor center In Utah. One experiments which is enough to run the pumps and blowers In the building. Westinghouse Electric is doing, research along a different line In development of the power reactor 'or the atomic submarine Nautilus." It may be ready for trials'in 1954 or 1955. G. E. Project Most Extenslra General Electric, at its Knollys tonn£ Power Laboratory near Schenectady, N.T , has the most extensive research under way, Started In 1946, its research cpn- •f act was. extended In 1951 to 1956. It now employs 2000 people and represents ; _ »28 million ., investment. The development of a power breeder-reactor at Knollys was deferred In 1950 by AEC, In order to concentrate all effort on as Intermediate .reactor; for submarines. The Knollys lab has confirmed the 'theory that liquid sodium is the' best material to use for. the transfer of heat from the reactor to the steam generating unit. Being • metal, sodium can be forced through pipes by electro-magnetic pump*. This reduces leaks and and radiation hazards. v While General Electric engineers think that "eventually" atomic fuel may be competitive with coal or oil, today they will, make no cost .estimates. "In areas where electricity l» now readily available, It I* hardly likely that the advent of atomic energy will cause any revolutionary reduction in the cost of power," says a company statement. - v ' 6.

A CORRESPONDENT writes that she is 39 years old and Is now in her fifth pregnancy nnd Is terribly troubled with varicose veins which she hns never had before. Elastic stockings, she says, help It la certainly possible that the enlarged veins in such a case are not true varicose veins, but are he, result of the pregnancy. At any rntc, most doctors would probably advise her not to do anything about t until after Ihe pregnancy Is over since they might get much better. But varicose veins and varicose ulcers do cause an enormous amount of distress both physically and because of their appenrnnce to many people as they grow older. Varicose veins do not produce pain or discomfort unless they are Inflamed, but such veins are more likely to be inflamed than normal nes. Those who huve varicose veins are more likely to have swollen feet or ankles tfcan those with normal veins. Also, the poor circulation can produce ulcers. These ulcers sometimes beccine enormous, causing destruction of the skin and large open sores. Everyone Is born with folds or valves In their veins which carry the flow of blood upward. These valves prevent the blood from All- Ing back and help to hold up the column of blood. They are especially Important In the legs, where the pressure ot the blood In the veins Is v heavy because human beings stand upright. If people stood on their hands Instead of Ihelr feet, the valves in the veins ol the arms would be Just as Important. Ov*r UM Uw prtuun *• the valves In the leg's veins is jrcat and they are ofte'n broken down. When this happens the necessary support Is lessened nnd the veins become swollen. Most of them are near the surface because the internal veins get more support from the muscles and other tissues around them and.(his helps to prevent the valves from breaking. . SURGERY SED UOFTEN The use of elastic bandages whtch support the widened >nd enlarged varicose veins is, of course, an old remedy and helpful In many cases. Varicose veins are sometimes removed by. surgery. The use of injections for varicose veins also has. been popular, but now surgery i* again being used more and more. ' The treatment of varicose ulcers is still difficult, although Hvera! methods ar» used with success. Probably the most Important thing to do Is to prevent serious swellings or ulcers by getting treatment before they have lasted too long. to show this type of long suit In an otherwise worthless hand.
