Th« timing of the Joint Chief*' terms RJ professional judgments. of duty makes it ine*cap«bl« that Eisenhower w!!l face some changes, since Chairman Omar Bradley and Gen. Hoyt Vaod«nb«rg, Air Force Chief, both wish to retire. Nevertheless, it Is to b« hoped that Eisenhower's administration will re- storti the Joint Chiefs to unassailable non-political status, making of them a corps of experts to which all Americans of whatever party may look for guidance in military affairs. A small help in this direction would be to modify their terms so they would not expire almost simultaneously with a White House change-over. As it U, they are made to seem almost like-regular political officeholders, fit subjects for the spoils of high office. The opportunity to create a genuinely superior and effective military command is one of the great challenges confronting the ntw President. Americans, Too, Can Take a Bow Tomorrow Is Red Feather Day Flying the great oceans long ago became routine. But this has not meant that there are no more worlds for commercial aviation to conquer. The introduction of jet airliners this year was one demonstration that thfe frontier still * is advancing. Now we have another sign: the trailblazing flight virtually across the top of the earth from California to Denmark by a Scandinavian airliner. The pioneer trip look the plane from \fn Angeles to Edmonton, A1 be r t a, across the frozen wastes of northern Canada to a point near the magnetic' North Pole, to a big Air Force base at Thule, Greenland, and thence to Copenhagen. The 5800-odd miles were covered In 28 hours, including about four hours'on the ground at various bases. The idea of normal commercial operations over frozen lands that but a few years ago were familiar only to explorers it truly astounding. That such a route should even be proposed is a measure of the courage' and vision that marks the men in aviation today. .,'."' The inducements for this bold venture are clear— a saving of 1000 miles and some four hours' flying time, with all that means in fuel, personnel operations, maintenance problems, and the' like. But while we are doffing our ha Is to the Scandinavians who soon will begin regular scheduled 'flying over t h i s route, we ought not to overlook tl|e part we Americans played in making it possible. The great military base at Thule. built by us in collaboration with the Danes, is an indispensable element in this daring plan. And the planes which will fly the Arctic airlaties will be American DC-SB's, already proven workhorses of domestic and overseas service. Views of Others Military Heads Should Be Free from Political Attacks Soon after General Eisenhower takes office in January, thfe terms of the members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff will expire.- The likely change-over in our top military leadership will focus utten- tion on the problems of this most important group. One of these, difficulties can hfc laid «t the door' of the present administration. President Truman, and others of his civilian entourage, frequently called upon the Joint Chiefs to make or shar« in decisions which had a large political content. This situation was accentuated by the fact that under the military unification law the chairman of the Joint Chiefs is directed to report regularly and directly to the President on military matlers.'In performing this function, th« Joint Chiefs' head can see to assume lh« role of personal adviser to the President. Inevitably, therefore, the Joint Chiefs have been exposed to political attack from the Republican opposition. If men art identified with political decisions, they cannot be saved from political assault. But this result is totally at odds with our desir*d goal of a military high command divorced from politic* and cool in Erskine Johnson IN HOLLYWOOD HOLLYWOOD — (NBA) — x The >sugh Parade: It hasn't been told until now, but Errol Flynn became star when Brl&n Aherne turned own the Warner movie, "Cap- aln Blood."

Peter fdson'i Washington Columr Observers Ponder White House Role of Funny-Man George Allen By. IXHJCLAS LARSEN (NKA Staff Correspondent) (For Peter Edson) WASHINGTON —(NBA)— There is incrensing interest in the coming role nround the White House of George E. Allen, Too Effective to Neglect It's au old sUtistlc that drivers, rather than their automobiles, cause most accidents. The experts agree the best way to reduce driver failure* Is to improve motorists' skill at the wheel. If you can catch them in the learning stage and teach them to drive In high school, so much the better. High school training courses have proved their worth over two decades. Safety authorities say a youngster thus trained is unusally far more *Rfety-minded, than one who learns from friends, or on his own. But now the National Safety Council re- porU that the high school training program in th« United States has reached a standstill. School* already offering such courses ha%'bn't cut down, but few new ones are being added. Moro than hall ot American high school youth Is rte- nled driver training under proper supervision. Since the effectivenew of this attack on motoring fatalities is well established, it ought not to b« neglected. There are too few reasonably sure methods of coping with what ts still an mcrcas- hic problem. —John*cm city (Tenn.) Press-Chronicle. orte of Ike's closest personal friends. Hu is the;same George 'A 11 e h who wrote' 'the very futihy "boo/ called - "Presidents Who.

Actually, Alien is closer to Ike mn he is to Truman, although lie White House side door has al- vnys been open to George. Ike Irst met him during the war while Allen was in England on a spec in nissfon for Roosevelt. Since then Hie friendship has bloomed to Ihe point where Mr and Mrs, Ike and the Aliens have become the most Intimate friends, i Allen found the farm which Ikej bought in Gettysburg, Fa. T helped o arrange the finances for it, and ,ook care of the details of maintaining It during the campaign. On election night Ike had a-long- distance telephone chat'with Allen. It's not known what was said, but before the election Allen slated several times that he would not take an official Job in the Eisenhower administration. It Is really not the official role which Allen might play with the new President, but the unofficial, perhaps advisory place he will have. The concensus is that, Allen has a lot of what nti needs most— plenty of political savvy and : an intimate knowledge of bow things arc accomplished unofftctal.y in Washington, lie also has a marvelous sense of humor and Is most genial gentleman. Right . after the -election Allen was pestered by persons who tried to get to Ike through. him for one reason or another. But Allen would lave none of that and fled to his California ranch. Incidentally, his ranch Is a pretty fabulous off air with two swimming pools. The latter fact has won him the nickname of "Tv/o-Fool George" In the White House. George's Income comes from a largo number of big"' firms. He serves them as a member of their boards of directors in a sort of public relations advisory capacity, he says, One tinner Is sure about Allen's future for the next four years. The White House fi'ont and side donrs will be open to nun at all limes, and in one way or another he will continue to be a very in flucntial man behind the t scenes at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.- And Mrs. Mary Allen, a sparkling, friendly gal, will be one of the new first Lady's closest friends. Bonus From Taxpayers A Congressional committee is Investigating reports that the outgoing heads of various bureaus and agencies are rushing through vholesalc promotions for some o: .heir favorite employes before the lew bosses take over. It's a sor of parting gift. There are supposed lo be two reasons for this trick. If the new leads which are brought, In do any mass demoting to make way fo: men who they want lo hire, thi effect will be to maintain' presen Incumbents in their same ciivl ser vice rank. They will just be de moted back to where they wer before the election. On the other hand, if those per sons who are getting rush pro motions get fired, the lump-sui payment they get for their unusc leave will be figured on the- higher salary. In other words. u»st gives them an extra bont on the U.S. taxpayer.

It takes about that irg .for the. paper work on such thing to. clear through civil ser- ice and be tabulated. Then it will e too late. ' ; /; Policy Captors , An expert on government ad- ilnistration claims that one of IB biggest jobs sonic of the new abinet members will 'have is resting so-called policy control way from the top permanent ivll service employes. Under President Truman there ive been frequent changes made n the heads of most of the 1 de- lartments. And some of them-were ,'eak administrators. The result vas that the permanent employes ;radually took over even policy- naking In the agencies. Best example of this is the Vet- :rans Administration, it is claimed, Carl Gray, VA administrator, has fOmost become the captive of the men running his bureaus. Any new VA head is going to have it tough setting control ft way from. them. Security Kiss—Ex-Em pi DCS Some of the officials concerned with enforcement of the government's security regulations are a" ittle - worried over the fact that .here will be a record number of persons leaving the government, when the new administration takes over, who will take with them in their heads the nation's top military and diplomatic secrets. ; The smallest estimate is that the switch will put out between 100 and 300 persons who have been cleared for working with top secret information. Some guesses go to more than 1000. Nothing like this exodus has ever taken place before- Nor have the secrets they carry in their heads into private Hfe been so numerous and so vital lo.the nation's security. Basically, all of these persons were given elaborate security Ste'EDSON* on Page 12 here it is: count 4 points for each ace In your hand; 3 for each king; 2 for each queen; 1'for each jack. In today's .hand South's jump takeout to two spades shows a count of 19 points or more. South has 18 normal points and counts 1 point extra for the queen of hearts. Souths'Jump to five no-trump Is a general slam Invitation, requesting North to choose the best slam. South cannot tell whether the slam will be safest at spades, hearts, or no-trump. When this hand was actually played, North had a very doubtful opening bid, since his. count was only 13 points in an aeeless hand. When asked to choose a slam, North chose spades ontthe the'ory that the doubleton in clubs might be : useful at a suit contract but would not'be an asset at no-trump-' At rubber bridge there would be nothing to the play of cards. Declarer would draw -• trumps, knock out the ace of hearts, and then collect'twelve'Of the coldest tricks ever seen on land or sea. Since the hand was played in a board-a-match team event, South had a real problem In the play. He expected that the oilier team would reach a contract of six no- trump .rather than six spades. With twelve tricks Ice-cold at no- trumps, Ehe other team would surely win the board. South therefore decided to -play for all thirteen tricks. There was only a slim chance, of course, but it was worth a try.

I This common disorder is caused iy a diseased condition of the nr- eries which supply blood to the leart muscle. These ulood vessels are called the coronary arteries. W he n not enough blood passes through them o supply tbe needs of the heart Luiscle, pain develops In the chest or nearby. In angina the coronary srterles do allow some blood lo pass .h.rough. Consequently, the pain usually does not develop when the person Is resting or exercising only slightly; It comes on when he heart muscle is working ha\d* er and needs greater quantities of blood. A person who has angina pectoris thus lias to learn how much exevlion he or she can take without producing symptoms, 'Symptoms.
