Failure to Resolve Soar Issue Could Upset Unity. . The Saar u a tiny pocket of land along the Rhine River border of France and Germany. For more than three decades it has b«tn shrouded in Frnnco- German controversy. Both countries covet its riches of coal and steel., After. World War I the Saar was taken from Germany and put under the League of Nations. In 1935, Nazi Germany, exerting heavy pressure, regained the territory in a plecliscite. .After World War II, Saar citizens voted for economic union with France, since Germany was then on its back. Britain and tlie U. S. accepted the. ar- rangement to win French support for the unification of Western Germany. . Recently Saarlanders voted against, reaffirming their economic lies with France by piling up 68 per cent of the area vote in favor of the present Saar . government, a pro-French affair. Pro-Gtrman parties were not represented in the election, so a direct test could not be had. But 24 per cent of the voters .umed in spoiled ballots, and German advocates had urged this as deliberate policy. Saar leaders contend at least 10 per cent are normally spoiled. If that is so, then about 14 per cent is the measure of the pro-German vote under marked handicaps. Evidently this result dots not really improve the situation. The Germans continue to regard the Saar as theirs, as it is by race, culture and language. The French think they deserve the Saar as compensation for the ruin the Nazis wrought in France. Moreover, they are mindful that Uie Saar constitutes 28 per cent of their coal output and 25 per cent of French steel production. With it counted, France can roughly match German coal-steel figurts and talk on equal terms in implementing the Schuman European coal- steel agreement. Without the Saar, the French are at a disadvantage. Some leaders believe the only possible solution is to internationalize the Saar, to make it a separate element in a developing European community. There is considerable evidence that the Saar- landers themselves would prefer this to permanent affiliation with either Germany or France. Jhiny' have a kind of sjiMt per.viuaiity, fseiing cultural bonds vrith ths Germans but believing their stomachB nn> -,'uller under the; French. Ch»nt>el!or Adenauer of Germany and French Foreign Minister Schuman have been trying to achieve this objective, with no luck. Feeling runs high on both sides, and Germany especially gels bold- t er and bolder as it grows in bconomits strength and regains political stature. Th« moment for agreement on ths Saar .THURSDAY, DEC. 11, may hav« gone by. It Is no exaggeration to say, however, that failure to resolve this dilemma could put in jeopardy th« whole project for European unity — political, economia and military. Ultimately it may provide a supreme test of European statesmanship. America Looks to Religion in Crisis In the short space of two months, more than 1,600,000 copies v of the new revised version of Ihe King James Bible were sold. It's a publishing record untouched in book-selling history. What does it signify? \ On the surface, it would seem to mean that the new version — the product of almost 20 years' work by a . committee of bibical scholars — is immensely attractive to a great many people. This is natural enough, since it had been a long time since any comprehensive attempt had been made to eliminate inconsistencies and contradictions and otherwise improve the King James Bible. , But it's just possible that there is more to it than this, more also than the fact that the Bible always has been the top "best-seller." It's just possible that this remarkable appetite for the new Bible ia another evidence of the upsurge' in religious interest that has characterized the postwar years. People in America, like men and women across the globe, are living suspended in an atmosphere of crisis. They refognize that the dilemmas of our time are moral more than they are political or economic. And they are looking to i'e- ligion in search of faith to reinforce the moral decisions that this age demands. —Arid France Went H6me~With the'Groceries Views of Others More Heat Than Light r There vas plenty of heat but not much light in the criticism addressed, by the navy's surgeon general to doctors and'dentlsLs;. who. prefer the better pay antj the serene conditions of civilian practice to the rigors of mliyary' service. It IV doubtful if a single doctor or dentist wilt be Induced to don the uniform by sweeping accusations of avarice such as the one del.v-. ercd by Rear Arim. Lament Pugh before a meeting, of the Association of Military Surgeons of (he United Stales. For doctors and dentists are not alone In their pursuit of nuHerla! gjjiti,.-If they seem to be making (he most of, their opportunities they are not without the company of others in society, Including even rear admirals enjoying the pay and prerogatives of the navy's top positions. H Is true, as Admiral 1 Push points out, that no one Is making service life attractive for "the soldiers and marines who are fighting, bleeding and dying in the heat, and dust on barren Korean hillsides." But It is true also that the circumstances ' which took American servicemen to Korea were not of their own choosing. If there ts an over- Tiding need lor doctors nnd dentists In Korea the country has a means of getting them there. The draft that put. soldiers and marines in Korea could also put doctors and dentists there In whatever numbers may be necessary. Meanwhile, Admiral Pugh Is not accomplishing much by attributing unconscionable avarice to the doctors and dentists at home. Oklahoma City Oklahoman.

By DOUGLAS LARSEN NEA Staff Correspondent {For Peter Krtson) WASHINGTON — NEA — President-elect Elsenhower and the new Congress will be asked to take a stand on proposals to oul- law industry wide bargaining. Small business groups, econo- and some industries planning campaigns to make it an issue, an eye to legisla- . abolish Douglas Larscn the practice. Based on experience with the device, the opponents of Industry- wide bargaining have some convincing arguments .' against It. When it started it looked like a good means ol settling labor disputes quickly, and efficiently. Today it looks like n big industry versus small industry .gimmick, and one generally loaded in favor of the strong national unions. Union leaders have several arguments for the case of Industry- wide bargaining. They point out that it lends to equalize wages all over the'country. It helps pull up wages, and hence living conditions. In areas which otherwise would have very low pay scales. The big union heads tell their locals lhat the device provided labor a chance to put its best and strongest fool forward. Bach union is actually represented by the best bargainer Ihe organization can produce, they say. They also claim that for the first time labor can sit down at the conference table with just as big guns as those mustered by industry. The most convincing argument lor Industry-wide bargaining is that It artually has tended to equalize wages in the U. S, And it has probably won more total raises for labor than it would have under the old system. But, Its opponents saV, the device has actually lost more for the individual worker In terms of his other rights than it has won him In wages. And in many cases, large blocks of workers have suffered financially, it can be proved. Innumerable small companies have folded because they haven't been able to keep going and pay the high wages agreed to pay the larger companies. This has happened in the coal, trucking and steel industries. Whole localilies have been financially ruined as a result. The quick answer Is lhat inefficient firms should be weeded out. But as Associale Supreme Court Justice 'Robert Jackson points out in n case touching on this subject, it isn't the right of bargainers for a union and a big industry to make such a decision. It Is further claimed that Industry-wide bargaining In effect takes away the individual worker's right to strike, that it vitiates a proper settlement of his grievances and that the strictly local problems of employes are lost in the big shuffle. Theoretically, the right to refuse to work is an employe's biggest weapon In dealing with his employer. But wilh Industry-wide bargaining he loses It as an instru- ment to improve his own working conditions. I*. Complicates Some Problems Several disadvantages to companies have become obvious through its use. Illogical groupings of firms have resulled. Each fabricator of a different steel product has basically different problems to settle with his workers, for instance. Yet the ironing out of these problems satisfactorily, is hindered by the industry-wide bargaining procedure. Proponents of Industry-wide bargaining contend that It removes the danger of the loss of his competitive advantage for a manufacturer if his plant is Ihe only one on strike. On the other hand, this gain is lost to a manufacturer rf •—-sr-l different items, whose trouble with one industry shuls uo\ui his whole operation. A Senate small business committee report makes another point: "Many a small firm with a splendid record of labor-management relations is sucked into the maelstrom of national labor dis- pules, with disastrous results for years after, because they are not allowed to setlle their labor prob lems in face-to-face relalionships with their workers." A spokesman for a group of small firms puts their objective this way: Barbara Paylon hopes that Hollywood will forget the Tom Neal- Fanchot Tone tug-of-war for her heart and let her. continue with her acting career. But she's prepared to take up permanent residence In England If the wind blows cold along flicker alley.. The blonde headline queen made two films in London and she's counting on their U.S. release to bring her Hollywood offers. "I hope it will make a difference." Barbara told me. "If It doesn't, I won't stay In Hollywood I think It's kind of unfair but that's another story."

"My hair Is last thinning." says i Mr. W. "Is there n remedy or exercise to arrest the process? I am 52." How many of the rest of us have the same problem. But it is lucky that baldness Is so much more common In men than In women. Just Imagine the uproar if women tended to baldness as much as men. There Is a strong family tendency to baldness. In such families Ihe hairline over the lemples gradually recedes nnd Ihe hair becomes . thin, at the crown. A s time goes on the hairless area becomes larger and larger until the whole lop of the head resembles an egg shell. The so-cauen ."cures" range all the way from "singeing the hair to keep the Juice from running out" (and. incidently, the hair is not hollow), to costly Instruments for "massaging" the scalp or producing some other marvelous effect on hair growlh. Although claims ara made for many "hair restorers," there are too many failures from any form of Irealment to Justify the belief lhat there ts a good prevention or cure. But It Is probably true that dandruff or poor circulation In the scalp will speed- the loss of hair. Consequently, tf any such condi- llon ts present, treatment of the dandruff and massage of Ihe scalp aimed at Improving the clr culatton may delay, though H probably will not stop, the-gradual loss of hair. One peculiar kind of baldness Is called alopecia areata. In this the hair falls out complete'.!'

Ihongh ' Just what causes it no one has yet discovered. The hair Is often gone for several months nnd then, more often than not, grows back just as Before. HAIR NATURALLY RETURNS There are other conditions which cause loss of hair. The hair frequently falls out after Infectious diseases such as typhoid, scarlet fever, Influenza or some toxic con- dillon. After a while, however, the hair usually grows back In and may be heavier or even a slightly different shade. Treatment of this type of loss of hair Is usually not necessary, since nature takes care of the situation. By and large the claims of anyone that he has developed a remedy lor the control or cure of bain- ness, or that he has Inherited a formula for a remedy, or that hfe has accidentally discovered a rem criy or method, should be viewed with the greatest skepticism.

JACOBY ON BRIDGE Finesses to Win Bridge Game By OSWALD JACOBY Written for NEA Service The unnccesary finesse Is one of the crimes most commonly commuted by the- losing bridge player. A good friend of mine, now happily an expert bridge player, took .four unnecessary finesses In the very first bridge hand he ever played In his life. own hand and thus develop the suit without giving East (he lead. Unfortunately for declarer, East put up the jack of diamonds and subsequently won the third round of that suit. A. heart continuation then gave the defenders three tricks in that suit_to defeat the contract. South should have seen the danger of a heart shift at the very first trick. The correct play is to win the first trick with the ace of spade and go right after the diamonds. East gets one diamond trick and can take two spades, If he chooses o do so. Dummy's eight of spades will then provide a second stop- icr In the suit. No matter what 3ast does, however, he cannot prer ent declarer from winning four diamonds, three clubs, and two aces.
