Add Driving Risks: Stripe-less Highways We realize that the cost of highway construction materials, like the cost of all building materials, is somewhat exorbitant but it seems odd that a painted stripe could be the straw that breaks the camel's hack. .. ., . We refer to the stripe-less highways in this'area, especially Highway 61. Black-topped highways are always bad. . from the standpoint of night-time visibility even in good weather. In a heavy rain, it's worse; those black surfaces blend Jnently .with the gumbo highway shoulders and traffic lane boundaries become indistinguishable. Without a center-line stripe of high visibility, a motorist in bad weather finds himself navigating in pretty har- . rowing circumstances. When he sees the lights of an oncoming vehicle, he can do little but hope the other fellow has Ms bearings and is in the right lane. When Highway 61 was first resurfaced a couple of years ago, the workmen quit without making any move to paint a stripe down the middle. There was a brief flurry of protest here that brought painting a series of short, while stripes. Highway stripes, however, are not noted for their longevity. Research has been conducted for a number of years on paints for highway ..use. In various parts of the country, we,have setn highway paint test areas, consisting of a scries of stripes of dif' ferent paints being subjected to traf- rif and weather conditions. By now, one would think that the paint experts wouW have come up with something lasting and visiblt in the way of highway center stripes. Apparently not, however, if highways in this area are any indication of progress in this field. by tho $3,000,000 sailing for partlculaf committees, but the sum of their operations can end usually do«*,«xc««d mMf» urnbly tho total for th« official party organization. The legal limit, prescribed In 1939, has obviously bten unrealistic for some years. The 1952 campaign reduced it to absurdity. Television, campaigning by plane, and a few other modern features, piled on top of the standard expenses for radio, newspaper advertising and publicity, train travel and motor caravans, have sent costs iiito outer space. A recent New York Times survey indicates _ that at least $32,000,000 was spent by both parties this time, and possibly a great deal more. The House committee, headtd by Rep. Hale Boggs of Louisiana, has a chance this month to perform genuine service. It ought to arrive at some new spending limit which reflects the terrific cost of TV and plant travel. More than that, it should find some way of systematizing campaign expenditures so they are not .scaltcrifel through countless subsidiary committees whose activities may be difficult or impossible to check. The people have a right to know how much their political nominees spend in trying to get elected. As it Js, a sensible figure just can't be achievtd. The committee seems lo grasp the importance of its task an'd is setting about it in a sober iionparUsnn spirit. Let's hope its recommendations for remedial laws arb in the same construc- tiva vein. Views of Others A Sound Ruling On Segregation A Federal judge ruling on a segregation case In Nashville has conxe up with one of the most logical nncl fair approaches to the question of segregation thnt has come out in a long while. The case resulted from a suit designed to require the city of Nashville to open municipal golf facilities used by white people for joint use by Negroes. Special Federal Judge Robert N. WHtiln ruled that Negroes should have adequate ,golf facilities 'equal to those provided municipally for other citizens. That IE only,fair. On the scgregnMon Issue, however, the Judge declared thnt it was not necessary to end segregation In public facilities. "This court concludes," he declared, "that '.segregation Itself where legal rights arc unaffected is not unconstitutional or unlawful; that it ts R natural tendency which In the prograss of man's political, social find spiritual evolution may change or disappear; but that "it would be Inexpedient and unwise to attempt lo prevent or prohibit It :<or enforce unrestricted association) by Judicial decree." Judge Wilkin Is absolutely correct in asserting that Ihc law should protect .the legal and constitutional rights of nil citizens — but that when those rights are unaffected by segregation, the custom of segregation Is not a proper subject for Judicial tampering. Judge Wilkln's ruling Is the kind of ruling which should be welcomed by members of all races; It requires equal public facilities for all races yet permits each to be operated separately, as Is desired by most citizens, both Negro and whito. —Chattanooga News-Free Press. Enlightened Action Campaign Expense Limit Should Match Costs EDITORIAL FOR— (Wednesday) The current House investigation into campaign spending should prove one of the most useful inquiries in many years. The 1952 presidential contest showed emphatically how outdated are the present laws governing political expenditures. Under existing statutes each national party committee is limited to a ?3,000,000 outlay per campaign. In practice, the major parties long ago found the way to get around this handicap. Auxiliary citizens' groups, volunteer committees, subsidiaries of established organizations like lahor unions, thtse and others collect and disburse campaign funds of their own, They, too, are naturally restricted SO THEY SAY "Thanks, Sam.

By DOUGLAS LARSEN NEA Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON —(NEA)— Early next spring the new administration Is going to run headlong into its first rash of labor troubles. Contract negotiations will begin for electrical, rubber, textile, meat packing, shipbuilding, paper, utility and mach inery workers, to name a few. For several reasons the clash between labor and management in Larscn Xh\s bargaining Ls expected to be especially sharp. There's a good chance that one or more major strikes may result. According to the strategists for both sides, they want to "tinti out as soon as possible just how the new leaders In Washington are go (ng to stand on labor generally. Will Ike be as pro-management BE the New and Fair Deals have been pro-labor? Are labor's fears ot readopt a strictly midd!e-of-the-roat policy on labor? Those are the questions both la bor and management want an swered. And the central issue in these exploratory fights is going to be union security, or more spect flcally the union shop. With the general bnsines outlook steady foi at least another year, wages are not expected lo be a major Issue, Union security refers generally to such things as the check-off dues by the company and main tcnance of membership. The union shop is the most important aspec of union security and refers t forcing a worker to be a membc If all labor disputes could be settled by a "fair hearing'" there would be no danger of crippling the nation's productive effort by strikes. Frank B, Garvin, business manager of the American Federation of Technical Engineers, has shown R commendable altitude In calling off'a walkout at the atomic project in Barnwell and Aikcn counties. "We are willing to go along with the AEC," he said, "no matter whal the findings are. All we ask'Is R fair hearing." Meanwhile, work continues on the project. It now will be up to the Atomic Energy Commission to hold a fair hearing and reach find- Ings that are fair to both Ihe union and the employers. —Charleston (S C.) News and Courier, I the union In order to hold his ob. There are variations of this ompulsion. Unions Map Railroad Offensive The outlook of the unions is' omcthlng like this: The result of last summer's long, itter steel strike was a net loss or them on the union shop issue. Vhat resulted is charitably called . revolving-door shop, a sort ot . compromise. But tt gives work- rs the chance to quit the union .t frequent intervals. In; i the -disputes 'with' General Electric and the Douglas and .ockheed aircraft companies the unions lost more decisively on the jnion shop. GE fronted for indus- ry on the issue so vigorously and ^ucce.sfully it strengthened the >ackbone of many other large irms on the matter. Thus, with these setbacks, and ha knowledge that at best their 'oices and influence In Washington vill be dulled for the nc.xt four ^ears, the unions have everything ;o gain by making a major, aggressive stand next spring in iopes of winning at least a good lolding position. In the meantime, the unions have a chance to improve their strength for the. main spring offensive, and plan lo exploit it. Great pressure 1 be put on railroads in the west and southeast this winter to agree .to union shops. So far the inions have been stopped them. But if the unions could into the spring negotiations with new union shop agreements from this .important block of employ" ers, It Is believed that the psy chologtcal loss in the steel strike would be overcome. The so-called non-operating tin ions representing the clerks, ma chmisis, electricians and carmen are involved in the railroad disputes. If they struck, they could paralyze the roads involved. It could put the new administration up against a crisis before it had a hance to get its feet on the ground. Management To Stand Firm iManagement's thinking runs omething like this: Industry's labor experts feel that he unions have pushed as far as hey can through the soft area on he union shop. They feel that the going for the unions from now on vil[ be tough, and they hope impossible. This opinion is based on the probably correct assumption that :he net effect of the election is to :hcir advantage. The Secretary of f>abor has wide discretion In interpreting laws for or against labor. And the President has power to appoint members to the special boards which make important, la- i6r deci5ions".\ These boards can be weighted one way or another, according to the President's Inclination. With this favorable outlook, industry, or the major section of It, is prepared to stand firm against the union shop or further extension of union security. Industry leaders hope that- both the new President and new Congress will back them up in this stand. However, spokesmen for key Industries are not overconfident about their chances. Privately, they don't r'end any anti - labor sentiment into the last election. And if anything, they 1 believe thai the new leaders of the CIO and AFL will be especially tough and aggressive in trying to consolidate their positions.

Chorea, or St. Vitus Dance, asi It Is commonly known, is a ner-' vous affliction which belongs in| the same family as rheumatic fe-: ver. Children between the ages of five and 15 are most commonly atlacked. Girls arc involved about wlcc as often as boys, for some iknown xeason. A family history of Ihc disease s frequent, but this Is certainly aot the only cause. Some of those vbo are attacked by chorea also lave rheumatic fever, but most [o nol, at least in an obvious orm. Chorea must be suspected in the youngster who suddenly shows signs of awkwardness such dropping and breaking dishes without any apparent, reason. Emotional disturbances before the onset ot symptoms is quite common. The child with chorea may show signs ol Ihe disease at school. Inability to psy attention to the school work and a Vathcr sudden drop from good to poor grades are suspicious signs — but there are many other possible reasons lor these. Tho observant parent may no lice that the child's muscular movements become, more abrupt and imcoordlnatcd. Quick, sudden jerking movements ot the limbs or of the face arc frequent. Walk- Ing may be irregular and other motions clumsy. Inability to Veep still Is characteristic of children, but any great change In a child's ability to sit quietly must bt? viewed as a possible sign of The Involuntary movements or muscular spasms of typical chorea are- irregular. The child who Is asked to extend the arm out with he fingers spread well apart, usually shows peculiar twitchings and shakings.

As you might suspect, this is a course on contract bridge, and "Professor" Michaels puts two hundred students through their paces so neatly that they are able lo play tournament bridge in their | last, four class sessions. Today's nand was played by Michaels some years ago, and he ol diamonds. How could all the work be done? The "professor" showed how. He ruffed the third round of clubs with the nine of diamonds, drew one more trump with the queen of diamonds, and then entered -dum my by leading the five of dia monds to the six. His next step was to lead the queen of heart; from dummy. N East played a low heart, anc Michaels carefully threw the jack under dummy's queen. This a key play. When the queen of hearts held dummy could continue with the ten of hearts. If Bast covered witl the king, dummy could be re-en tered wUh the nine of hearts. 1 East played low, dummy's ten, o hearts would hold the trick. Ii either case, dummy could lead spade for a successful spfide f: nesse. The ambitious contract wa thus fulfilled.
