In iti plac« comes growing consternation. The French'may indeed have temporarily slowed the west-South-westward advance of the Viet Minh armiei in the mountainous so-called Thai country, but they did not precipitate a re- trent. Indeed, In their own inevitable withdrawal from enemy soil, Bom* ele^ mcnts of the French were ambushed. To add to the gloom, Russian truck's and other equipment recently have been found among abandoned or trapped rebel material. .These : Soviet aupplits a r e being brought in over a 7000-mile rail line built across China and safe from air attack. These recent developments underline for the world once more that the Communists do not see Indo-China as a minor rebel skirmish but as a critical battlefield in the strategic contest for all Southeast Asia. We of the West may regard it as something less than critical only at our peril. Views of Others The Piccolo West to, Muster Strength Economic Parley Might Help In London, six prime ministers of British -Commonwealth countries are currently talking over their mutual economic problems. They haven't done this ''§ince 1932. It will be a good thing if the conference produces decisions leading to greater stability within the Commonwealth. It will be a better thing if progress is made toward drawing those countries ' more firmly Into the wider orbit of. ; trade in the whole free' world. .The time has gone by when any na* tion or group of nations intent upon lasting economic well-being can look to self' containment for salvation. Too many high walls already break the flow of strength-giving commerce in thfe non- Communist family. In theory,'the free nations have the resources, men and skills to fa^e down the Communist threat, if it should ever come to that. But theory and reality art' wide apart. Many of these elements of potential strength are tucked in isolated pockets within national borders. Here they eithtr serve the constricted aims of inbreeding economic nationalism, or they lie in. sterile disuse. Communism brooks neither tariff • N barriers nor national boundaries in con• solidating its own economic strength. If the Reds should bfe allowed to succeed in that merging of power, we cannot complacently assume there is security in our superior paper potential. We must translate that potential into the hard t. goods of thriving trade and effective defense. For the free lands the problem is acute it is immediate. A successful Commonwealth meeting could count as an important stride toward solution. But aloiie it is not enough. All Ihb West ought to assemble in conference on the economic issues today affecting the globe. Not since 1933 has such a gathering - been tried. The London Economic Conference of that year was »'dismal failure, possibly for many reasons, but not •• " Nv the least because President Roosevelt de>. "clined to take serious part in it. With hearty American support this time, an International economic conference might •well make striking advances toward-the solutions indispensable to a full muster of western power. Such a conference could be scheduled right on the heels of the coming bien- .nialmeeting of the International Chamber of Commerce in Vienna next May. News Item* Wall Street Journal: The Army has ordered $20,000 worth of piccolos. At today's" retail price (»150).that should bring 133 and a third ptccoloj. We Imagine, however, the Army, going In for so many, gels a little better price, though you will probably have to ask Senator Williams of Delaware about that. He seems to be the only one down there in Washing- . ton who pays any attention to minor detalU amounting to . leas th'sg »20.000. Anyway, : it's a lot .of piccolos. What in the earthly world do you ^uppose the Army, wants with so many of them? Are th« old ones all played out? Has there been an enormous Influx ol piccolo players Into the _ armed forces? Have composers of martini muslo suddenly developed Sousa's and Berlioz' passion for the shrill little instrument? Or has some ' enterprising piccolo salesman wormed his way into the Pentagon, the way the flute and sousaphone salesman did during the last war? Those flutesjetjajled at $250 apiece. After the strains of war were over ,we have It on excellent authority, they were sold at $10 apiece. The sousaphoncs retailed at $«00. There's a lot of brass-In a big horn like that. We Imagine a good, battle?scarrcd sousaphone sold for around $15 after the'necessity for material music has passed. ' So If you're willing to wait, you can probably pick up a good .unused piccolo eventually for around $5. Pins a $5 . commission, of course, for making the right piccolo contact. But that's cheap for a piccolo. Besides you'll have another good story to add to the delightful and apparently Inexhaustible saga of the piccolo player. ' Providence (R. I.) Journal.

By DOUGLAS LARSEN NEA Staff Correspondent (For Peter Edaon) ' WASHINGTON —(NBA)— This, city Is practically in a ;slate of suspended animation. In a strange, tense mood it's waiting for the other shoe to drop. It's not exact- 'ly the mood anyone would have predicted after. Republican vlc- cory. .It's certainly, hot .the mood . - - of the rest of the Donflas Larsen country, which one of complete relief that the hole thing Is over. There is obviously great appre- ension among many governmeni mployes about their futures. Even lose who aren't likely to lose Jobs re concerned.

The employes close to top policy evelj a very small fraction, ar laturally worried about being firei ,nd finding, new jobs. All this" worry Is reflected in he real estate market in Wash- ngton. Seldom has it ben quite bad. Everybody Is wanting to sell. Nobody yet Is interested in buying. But the feeling of Job insecurity s far from the overriding mood of .the town at this unusual peri- Slate and city paving engineers are reported very interested in experiments being made in the use of natural rubber in streets and highways.

' It's perhaps been expresed | •y a. local newspaper editor this .•ay: "The real of the nation feels hat it has done Us duty now that t has gone to the polls and voted, t's ready to forget about the vhble thing for the next four •ears If It possibly can. "Unfortunately' the people In Washington, - most of whose lives one wap or another are wrapped up in government, have to go on living with the federal government and kep jit going. They mow too well*.th'e seriousness of what Is ahead." Those . 'persons In town " who fought for or craved a Republican victory aren't going through the motions expected of conquering victors either. As on official al Republican headquarters puts It: "I think we; nil kind of forgol during the campaign just exaclly what %Yinning entailed.. Now tha It's all over and we're beginning to size up what's in store, the victory, frankly, doesn't look quit" so rosy." You certainly don't hear thi grandiose, optimistic promises o what revelations are going to take place in Washington from GOP spokesmen, either. Democrats Are Shocked and Bltte Among many ' partisan Demo cratlc officeholders there's still certain feeling of shocked dlsbe lief.

Then' there is one campaign peech saying what you've done is 11 wrong, and the voters' throw ou out," he says. "How do you xpect you would feel under those ircumstances?" he asks. His feelings are fairly typical of hose held by many top officials, omehow they .haven't, demon- trated the flexible attitude of the Drofesslonal politician who can quickly forgive and forget after :ach election. To them Ike's vic- oVy was just as .miich of a surprise as President:Truman's was o .the nation in 1MB. There's a bigger residue of bitterness left In Washington over he campaign tbnn can probably ae found any place else In the country. Somehow the officeholders can't comprehend . that perhaps some voters voted : for a change" for, the sake of change. "Didn't Stevenson prove to.the people beyond any" doubt just how asinine that argument was!" one of them asks. Right after the election a general in the Pentagon .slapped his leg in high glee and said, "You'll be seeing Republicans coming out of the woodwork in droves." He couldn't-have been more correct. The average person out. of town would have been honestly surprised to discover just how many .vocal Republicans there were In government jobs before the election. But that's nowhere near the multitude you can find now. Eyebrow-raising line, from th» script of "Gentlemen Prefer.

West had no way of telling, of o'urse, that two heart tricks could la won Immediately. It was pbs- ible, for all West could tell, that is partner would have the ace of lubs instead of the king and queen f hearts. The important thing was to cash sure trick first and decide on the orrect continuation after taking a ook at the jdummy and seeing mrtner's signal.
