Eisenhower Setup Worthy, If Biggest Issues Studied ^ From time, to time' during the pves- " idential campaign, General Eisenhow- ^- er .was criticized because he had al- • ways-operated as an e'xecutiveHhrough c the military ' '.'chair-of-command','/ sya- , tem. The suggestion was that this way N of doing was 'not only worthless but might'even be a dangerous * handicap , to a civilian executive. ; , Under this arrangement, Eisenhov,- ' er customarily relied heavily on his chiefs of staff in his pe'riods of most v notable service. In World'War II, Gen. Walter Bedell Smith, now head of Ihe . Central Intelligence Agency, filled that spot for Ike. In his tenure with NATO, 'the general leaned on Gen. Alfred M. Gruenthtr. • Eisenhower's selection of Gpv. Sherman Adams of New Hampshire to be his • chief assistant in tlie White House discloses the general's evident intent to . repeat the pattern. Adams served virtually in the capacity of personal chief of staff to Ike throughout the dam- paign. In that role he won the general's supreme confidence. It is fair to ask, therefore, whether the prospect of this organizational setup is really so frightening as some critics of "a military man in the White House" hinted. The chances are that it is viol. The President of the United States is the most overburdentd man in the nation, if not the world. Though the law today provides him with a chief assistant, six administrative aides, armed service aides, three secretaries and a special counsel, he still must decide each day what things he will do of the many he could do. Undoubtedly he has not yet shed •11. the routine tasks he should,to be properly free for his crucial policy-making decisions. More of his time ought to be saved by having his problems sorted out so the lesser ones fall to lesser hands, and by having terse suriimariza- tions given him on those he himself must solve. This, obviously, is the very field in which a chief of staff, civilian-style, can ptrhaps operate so usefully. A highly qualified assistant can keep the President's mind functioning on the big issues, where his personal decision is critical. In most cases he can save him volumes of reading by briefing the Chief Executive effectively. Far from being frightening, such nn arrangement ought to be welcomed. With one note of caution: If the President's mind is to be big, if he is If) , think • courageously and originally, h« .'' cannot depend wholly on tight sum- marteg of th« great problems, He muat find time to mak«: himself a student of thos« problems and their frame of^ history, government, morality, and thi )ik«. ' Only thux can h« bring to his decisions the full benefits of the dbtach- ment which is the goal of the sort of improved executive organization heralded by Adams' appointment. Only thus can the complete measure of tlie grtat- «sl office in the world be realixe.d ; Scapegoat for Hire From long experience with Communist doings, we no longer look at espionage and treason trials and ask. "What has this latest batch of spies been up to?" We know the spies are manufactured to fit tlie occasion, and the only question worth pressing is what the occasion is. In other words, what is it that the reds are trying to excuse? What do they need a fresh crop of scapegoats for? The current C/ccli treason trials, progressing very nicely through a series of neat, orderly, automatic confessions, apparently have their root in tlie failure of Prime Minister ''Gottwnld's Red government to fulfill promised war orders for the Soviet Union, ^nml in acute food and fuel shortages. Sinct failures of this kind simply don't happen in well- regulated Communist families, it is obvious that some very wicked people, spurred on by foreign spies, must be responsibly for the whole mess. In Comm-unist territory, the wicked persons are always found, or rather, manufactured. By processes of loiture wfc now understand well, men of either high or I6w slfttion are actually altered in. personality until they fit the desired psychological pattern and are willing to utter the exact words of the Commun- ist'script. Want a scapegoat? Just knock, on any Red headquarters door from Bucharest to AIoscow, and inquire within.

By DOUGLAS LAKSI'.V NEA Stuff Correspondent (For Peter Edson) WASHINGTON — (NEA) — The first clean evaluation of President Truman's controversial -order which put a, form of military censorship, on'-news 'coming out 61' civilian ngrnctos • will be, possible when : L h e new administration moves In. It .will be the fiist time since he order went into effect on Sept. 2.5, 1051, that a new and irnpaitial roup will have authority to,review'- the , files and . determine whether or not there; have -been abuses. j * Defending it against wide protests from the press, shortly utter Hitting It into effect,' President Truman 'said It was necessary to protect military, secrets which the civilian agencies were Handling. He also sairt Hint it was intended to him loose n lot of; InlormaUon which had been incorrectly classified us secret. Since then the debate over v the order 1ms waged hot and heavy. Bill the President has stood firm on keeping It intact, with minor concessions. Several committees .or. If a.file or document is classi- ied as jyccret, a reporter should never be allowed to see it. t Order Born in The Pentagon It is now entirely possible for ;he agencies to have Jammed "secret" files -which only contain evidence of stupidity or chicanery. That, possibility can soon be fully explored. ' The history of the order Is Important. The Idea was born in the Pentagon soon after the war. A preliminary draft which contained really harsh restrictions was sent to the' White House as :a recom- hnvc. been set up to review study Its effect. They have and no I come up wllh anything convincing to the other side. There is one obvious fact aboul the; ability of'the press itself In monitor the order. If it Is properly enforced, there is nothing to moni- menclatlon from cuilty "Council. the -National Se- The late.Joe Short, former White House piess,secretary and his assistant* veteran Irving Perimeter, both Washington correspondents, were, upset \yhen they, first saw It, although they were both In favor of Us general aim. .

They flatly rejected the whole idea as being a' basic encroachment on freedom of the press, and unneces sary. In spite of these objections, the President put it into effect. And press groups have continued to fight' It. Thus, the legal continuance today excuse said for It- by the .White House to be two-fold. It Is aased on the original NSC request. It Is also called for In an earlier executive order which set up the government's loyalty program.' Eisenhower Can Rescind II According to ' government ' law r Its existence are. binding on Presl- yers neither of these reasons for dent-elect Eisenhower. If he wants to Ike can rescind the order with the stroke of a pen. It Is known that as a military man the new President is very security conscious and might'be generally sympathetic lc> the aim of the order. However, it: is'being pointed out that if his new aides find their files full of abuses, Ike will-have no choice but to rescind it. ' . r .The fact is, there never were enough serious breaches of security by civilian agencies to Inspire the order in the first place.'Congress and • the Pentagon have always been responsible for most ol the security-leaks. But the order doesn't apply to Congress, and the Pentagon Is always supposed to have had a maximum security code liv effect. It is also a fact that President Truman's other stated reason for the order—the release of more vf. formation—hasn't meant anything On the other hand there have been several specific cases of obvious 'Violations of the order In the at tempt to cover up bureaucrat! mlslakes, and no telling how many more which haven't come to light the Dcntor Says — Written (or NEA Service EDWIN T. JORDAN. M. Many discouraged and desperate people write lo this column asking what can be done for their bnckaches. Would that 1 had a simple solution. Those who have severe and long-continued back-. aches deserve the sympathy of all of us, but there Is no simple formula or cure to recommend. Backaches can and do come from a large variety of causes. An injury, perhaps long forgotten, may have caused a strain, dis- ocalton, fractiire, bruise or rup- .ure of the disk or cartilage which icparales the bones of the spine and in this manner lead to backache. Bad- posture can account for )aln in the back. One leg shorter :han the other, flat feet and too- soft beds belong In this group, Sometimes backache is the result of R malformation which was nesent at birth but which was not severe enough to produce symptoms or pain for many years. Diseases ol the spine, Including all the various forms of arthritis, tuberculosis and osteomyelitis, can produce backache.'Tumors in or near the bock may be responsible, Many diseases outside of the spine itself can cause pain or distress m the back. Acute Infections, cither local or general, may be at fnull. Diseases of the male or female genital, organs , can cause difficulty. Stones oi> abscesses in or near the kidney can also lead to back pain. EnougV said. But utilll the cause has beei discovered the proper treatmeni cannot be \ised. Physical exam inajtou and examination of the nerves Is necessary. X-ray films pf the spine are usually essential sary to fuse the bone. If there is a ruptured disk between the spinal bones or n tumor, surgery may be ,hc only way lo bring relief. If one could, it would be better to choose some other ailment.
