Rt&l result of the one-day solicita-' ,tiori lies in the fact that approximately 80 per cent of the Chest goal was , realized by the time lull reports were in Wednesday. In viewr'o'f.'the • fact that this w a » the first year' such a campaign was at- 1 ttmpted, 'it would seem that such suc- 1 cess would recommend it 5 highly for succeeding years. In other words, it is entirely within the realm of possibility that tha city can reach 90 per cent of its goal each • year in just one day. . Of' course,< the principal factor in this year's success was the wholehearted acceptance of th_e program by some 300 workers. More than half of these left their homes on a damp, cold night to attend the kickoff banquet and from that point on, success 'seemed to be assured. Although short of its $28,000 goal, this year's campaign was well-organized and'executed. The one-day drive should, and probably will, become a fixture. Ike Wisely Gives Team a Workout The activity around General Eisenhower's New York headquarters these days is impressive. The general is operating on the assumption that his 33 million votes on Nov. 4 were a mandate directing him to bring decisive action to the country's problems. He could have waited weeks before picking his cabinet and other top government officers. But two days after he returned from his post-election vacation he announced the first of his cabinet choices, and he's been hard at it ever since. . Moreover, the headquarters actually has been functioning as a kind of gov- trnment-to-be. For example, a committee has been set up to consider govern: ment reorganization proposals, and is currently delving into this field.' Eisenhower has named a chief assistant, a secretary, a special counsel and several other assistants, and all are busy serving their boss as if he were already in .office. This does not mean the general is trying to usurp the authority which belongs to President Truman until Jan. •20. He specifically stated he would not ;»o act and would not accept responsibility for any decisions in the "interreg- Wfc«t k do«j memn k that Ike it BLllHEVILLI (ARK.) COURIER ,'onljr acting wrth dilute* in biding hii administrative team, but it giving the team a praottc* workout. The yar- ioui memb*ra are familiarizing them- i«Ivw with the kind of duty and the kind of problem! they wiU face after inauguration, In using thi* technique, Eisenhower J« doing more than keep faith/ with the \ votera who electbd him to_galn a aharp, fresh onslaught on American problems. He ii going far to reduce tha dangers . of delay, and confusion and greeness inherent in any "witch of leadership — danger* of especial concern in a time of perpetual crisis like the present. Some Folks See a Woy Out Years ago an unsung American committed suicide by hanging himself from the chandelier in his living room. On a table beside his body lay an open book he evidently had been reading before he took '..'the fatal step. The title — "How to Fill Out Your Income Tax." Since his day iwe've all become a • lot more accustomed to that painful tax ritual than many of us thought we could. But to a vigorous minority the annual bout with-Uncle Sam's tnx forms still ' »eems a good .way to manufacture inferiority complexes. Apparently somebody has latc-ly been delving into psychology. The psychologists, of course, .always talk about "conditioning" people to the things they . encounter in life. It has now occurred to this someone to condition the American citizen to the job of making out his' tax bill. The method — teach him in high school. 'That's it. Students are going to get practice in high school at filling out the forms they .will in later life come to know-so well. Well; maybe it will work with some. But .there's a considerable fraternity which disagrees with the idea that only death and taxes are inescapable. This group would limit the inevitables to one ca'tcgory alone. Views of Others Cities And'Newspapers Occasionally, city officials are Inclined to look askance ,.at the : newspaper, It Is. they feel, a meddler; an Intruder up to no good. : They wish It wouldn't get. In their hair. - > Fortunately, this altitude.- U disappearing. Enlightened; public officials know that the. newspaper Is a partner. They can use It to promote good public 'relations If only they will. Through Iti pages they can transmit their' point of view to the public, to the people who elected them. And if they ha\c nothing to hide, they need never be;fearful of what the newspaper may print. The .newspaper's primary, function "Is'to Inform It seeks facts, and city officials do both it and themselves much good when they present the facts Without; equivocation. • A notation In Town and City,, organ of the Tennessee Municipal League, takes pointed cognl- annce of : the. newspaper's role; in these words: "The, community newspaper In the towns and cities over Tennessee ranks with the.scTiool and church as an ethical force and binding power In the municipality. The newspaper determines the ,outcome of more projects, exerts a stronger Influence for constructive community progress, and Is read longer by more members of the family than any other publication."

Must Pay Higher Salaries to Keep Best Men Erskine Johnson IN HOLLYWOOD By DOUGLAS LAKSEN NBA Staff Correspondent (For Peter Kelson) WASHINGTON —^NEA — "It's just-that a twenty disappears so fast at one of these cocktail lounges or at toe dining room nt Shoreham," Robert s p eck, chairman of the U.-S.. Civil Service Commission, that's vorries about some of the jobs which President' - elect Eisenhower Is go-' '"f <° nave to ' fill. He says: "I think the General has made some excellent choices for his cabinet who are strong men. But what worries me Is filling the second-level jobs of assistant secretaries- and urider-secretaries. The prestige Isn't enough to compensate for the money H man loses holding down those Jobs In this town." Bob happens ; to be sn expert on\ Washington jobs, too. He has held such posts as postal cleric on- Congressional Hill, representative from Georgia, president of the Air Transport Association, and new CSC Chairman. With his soft southern drawl he suggests that we try to prove his .point about prestige—go out on the street, stop the first 10 persons who come along and ask them If they can name the man who was Assistant Secretary of Agriculture. On our way to the street he says: "Now bear In mind that the Assistant Secretary of Agriculture has rm important hand In running a multi-million-dollar organization Which vitally affects the lives of millions of farmers. A comparable job in ; Industry would earn him at least $50,000 a year." Kamspeek Proves His Point Out in front of the CSC building on busy downtown "P" street he proves his point. Not only are the first 10 persons -who pass unable to name : the incumbent in - that post, for good' measure they are unable to name the man who is Secretary of the Navy. It gets too chilly to find 'the .first one who can. On the way back to his office he explains: "Those second-level Jobs pay between 515,000 nnd $17,000..But they entail a .lot of entertaining ' and travel. There's no expense account for them and a government official only gets 59 u day lor.travel. "I'll bet you the;re aren't'more than a half-dozen of them who won't end the year in the red. And as you can see by our experiment, they are practically unknown, even in \Yashington. "You can get a man to accept a Job for the prestige it carries rather than the salary It provides. But you can't keep a man in a money-losing job which doesn't have much prestige." , Ramspeck hopes that lice's personality will attract truly top men Sy. ' anonymous second-lewl -jobs. However, he IE skeptical about the chances .of. the men ; staying in them. Success D«petidft On Them Bob thinks that- the ~only way Uncle Sam is going to attract top talent for policy-making jobs below cabinet rank is to pay mora money for them. "These positions call for younger men who are. getting-close to : the top . in big industries or. who are important one way or another locally. Yet you can't fret theVn'and keep them • her* unless you pay them more. "You just can't ask a man to interrupt a .promising career fori a tough, usually thankless Job which puts him In the red." But, these are the jobs, he says, which can make the difference between an administration'being a success or a failure. Bob is a Democrat and thmk's that Ike would be justified in replacing him with a•.Republican. The lajv. calls for three civil service commissioners, with only two of them . representing the same political party. He agrees with the estimate that there will be about 2500 jobs which Ike will be .able to fill, without abusing the' spirit^ of - tha federal civil service laws.

Whenever an excessive amount of fluid Accumulates In the. tissues, doctors call the condition edoma- nnd almost everyone else calls It dropsy. The most common places for edema lo develop are the feet (where rtie circulation has to work against gravity), the Inside of the abdominal cavity, and tha soft Issues Just under the eyes. The reason Is that fluid gathers more lastly, and can be carried off less )romptly from these particular larts. The presence of edema fluid Is not a disease In itself. Dropsical luld can accumulate and can be kept in the tissues for any one of number of different reasons. Sometimes true disease Is not present at all—as on.a hot day when swelling often lakes place In the feet and hands of a normal person. One of the most common causes of edema Is heart disease. When the heart Is unable to do Its full job of keeping the circulation going In a normal manner, slowing ol the blood occurs. If this slowing is too great' the^ blood Is nol un\cd through the kidneys fas! enough and therefore some of the fluids which should be eliminated Irom the body through the urine Is retained. In some cases of Bright's disease, or chronlo nephritis, the kidneys themselves arc not able to filter out fluid from the blood as the.) should. In this case, too, the fluic Is simply not eliminated »n<f Is kept In' the body. There are other conditions wlilch may produce dropsical accumula tion of fluid, but probably Ihe most common are the two men tloned. In all cases, therefore when dropsy develops, it is Impor tant to find out what h causing 1 and to. remove or remedy th< cause whenever possible. n such cases' complicated meas- ires are necessary. -These may include special diets or medicines vhich alter the chemical sub- tances In the blood so that more luid can b carrtd off. In som cases of dropsy it is pos- iible to give drugs which are :al!cd diuretics. Diuretics have- he ability, at least temporarily, o Increase the, secretion of fluid hrough the kidneys and its passage In the urine. Sometimes excessive fluid can be akcri off by puncturing Hie place where it has accumulated and al- owing It to drain out. If fluid has collected Inside' the abdominal cavity It may be removed from time to time through a needle. In all cases of dropsy, therefore, the measures used must be adapted to the Individual circumstances.'
