PAGE FOWL THE JCEWS-HERALD, TKTuAT, ' AUGUST ' BIS. The Editorial Page LIFE UNDERGOES A CHANGE : Speculation on the I ussibilities of atomic I'Ower had a brief life tn general conversation. Immediately aftei the first atomic bomb was dropped there were all sorts of guesses as to when we should have automobiles, airplanes, trains and ships driven by the energy released from a hunk of metal the sue of a pea or a lump of ccal. Very shortly afterward, however, it was pointed out that the deadly rays of this released energy would require such a heavy weight of protective metal as to make atomic motive power impractical, at least for per eonal vehicles. And so almost everybody forgot the whole matter. Almost, but not quite everybody. For now comes an Army Air r orces announcement that atom-driven planes are at least "practical," and that aircraft manufac turers have been working for several montho toward the point where the pronouncement vf practicality could be made.

Apparently any atom- powered aircraft envisioned at present would have to be flown by remote control, as effects of the ravs would doubtless be fatal. Thus the presently-planned plane would be a military craft adding to the destructive, frightening uses of atomic power. I But this is only a beginning. With the atomic age a year old, one "impossible" task is on the way to being conquered. It lends strength to the notion that in two or three decades man will have changed his life and the world until you wouldn't know the old place. One can only hope that Ave shall still want to know it. On many afternoons and evenings we are just old fashioned enough to wish that the long "summer cars" were running to Monarch Park and that pleasure resort again was functioning as it was 30 years ago. COMMUNIST MEMBERSHIP SUPS Interesting, to say the least, is the report in Collier's Weekly that membership in the Communist party in this country has dropped from 70,000 in 1936 to 50,000 this year. Walter Davenport, who has looked into the matter, reports that the Reds need 25,000 more members and $150,000 for the radical organ, The Daily Worker, to keep going. "The impoverished Daily Worker has slipped to a daily circulation of 23,000 at five cents," he reports. "The Sunday edition ten cents sells about 80,000. The editorial staff operates under a Newspaper Guila charter, of course, but it cannot maintain the Guild pay scale for unhappy economic reasons." William Z. Foster and other Communist leaders are said to lament the weakness ci Communism within the ranks of industry and are exhorting the membership-drive groups to concentrate on industrial workers. "In New York the percentage of industrial workers' (in the Communist ranks) has declined from 34 to 29 per cent.," Davenport adds "Michigan has declined from 66 to 58 per cent. California has declined from 41 to 38 per cent." These three states are said to provide the most fertile soil for Communism. 4 WirJMl C"Ufira:atHn hy thf Senate before adjournment.

Went From Law to Education. 1 V;in Clark is i'. a retired law yer and businessman turned col lege1 professor. The influence of Sen. Joseph C. O'Mahoiiev orob- ibiy registered in the naming of Clark, who maintains u home in Cheyenne and was a nieuibtr of the Wyoming legislature in 11141. His job. however, is that of dean of the College of Business Administration at the 1'iiiversitv of Ne braska. His business experience has been general counsel, vice president, i nd president of the .Midwest Re fining Company, and as vice pres ident and director of Standard Oil of Indiana. He has s rt eii a!s as tlirwtitr i.f llit Omaha Federal Unserve lUuk. From UK? i iiefii be was adviser to the Senate Ci'lniiiitlee u Miieriiiii-ni Keirsaiiizaliu.

New fork's Sen. Hubert F. Wa ner is reiBinsible for the rise of Lton H. Ktyserlins. third and lil- eral minority member of the Council. Keyserling was Wasner's legislative secretary. He played an important part in drafting the Nation- iil l-i I mt Relations Act and Sena tor Wasner's tarlv bousing and lum-cltarauce acts. Now he is lM-di ytars younger than the other two. and he is a New Iealer, as against the ultra -conservative backgrounds of Nourse and Clark. Bv profession. he is a Columbia economist and a Harvard lawyer. Aside from one year's Ladling exiiernmoe at Columbia, he has had uo business exierieiice. For the past 14 years he has lieeu a government employe. His most recent iiosi- tioli has been that of general coun sel ; for the National Housing A sency. They'll Prepare President's Report. There wii have the three sU,"i.(HH'- a-ytar men who must now go to work and. before next le-eniber. prepare President Truman's first Kconouiic Heport to Congress. The Council will have a budget .f .:ihm() a year with which to organize its own sratf. Mostlv. it will have to depi nd on other gov ernment agencies for statistics and investigations. But it will be up to this three-man Council to make rec ommendations as to how the var ions 'government-aid programs houlil be shaped in order to con tribute to prosperity and to fo re- tall business depressions. It's no small responsibility. With the naming of this iotin- il and with the appointment of 40- year-old James E. Webb, of Ox ford. X. C as Director of the Bml- et. the new top-command of the Executive office of the President is now complete. Webb is a disciple of Gov. O. Max Gardner, now Un dersecretary of the Treasury. Gardner took Webb into his law firm as i .voting man, then got him a job with Sperry Gyroscope, where he was also associated with John W. Hanes. This group is strong for oper- iting the government under a bal-inced budget. There is not likely to be much encouragement for heavy government-spending pro jects from such advisers. And when you top this list with the name of Secretary of the Treasury John W. Snyder, you get an idea of the really conservative trend which prevails in the Truman Administration today. That's the Trouble With Reckless Driving. IT'S EXCITING WHILB IT LASTS Back of the Headlines Sudden death of Dr. Thomas J. Barr comes as a sad shock. He had counted so much on being home in a few days. Many will miss him and his genial greeting. FAMILY INCOME STUDY In the United States, which boasts the highest living standards in the world, half of our families received in 1945 cash incomes less than $2,000 a year. These figures of the Federal Reserve Board do not spell widespread poverty in this country, for many of the families lived in agricultural sections, where less than $2,000 a year is needed in cash to maintain a relatively high living standard. But for many American families it is a constant struggle to make both ends meet. Jt is true that because of good employment conditions in 1945 prosperity was more widely distributed in the United States than ever before, but the slim resources shown to exist in the lower income group indicate that any prolonged idleness would soon bring hardship. This is a rich country in resources .arid labor, and most Americans will not be satisfied with our situation until the good things of life are brought within the reach of a larger proportion of our people than can now afford to have them.

Doubf ISecmne.s Fear. In some cases doubt has deel- j op-d into fea r. Today one hears treiptciiily in ninny quarters lively discussions on how Kussia can be defeated in the coming war which seems to many people inevitable. This swing away from Kussia has been sharpest in the past three or four months. In the case of liritain, France and the United States mistrust or failure to understand the Soviets st ins chiefly from Russian policy in Germany and All conference table of tious and meetings ministers.

Conciliatory attitude and the compromising plan of Soviet Foreign Minister Molotov truly prove one of the week's big surprises at the Paris conference. May the good work now undertaken be marked with real harmony! Warren County has reason to look forward to Saturday and the visit of Justice Robert H. Jackson, just home from the Nuernberg trials. The centennial planned for Chandler's Valley will make history. G.I.'s are going to get bonds for terminal leave pay. This is a real break for the "rainy days" which are certain to come.

Emphasis on Communism. People of many European countries have seen Communist activity accelerated locally, and rightly or wrongly, they believe .Moscow responsible. They have noted that in countries which have conic under the influence of Moscow Communists hold key governmental positions in the interior, armed forces, education and press and propaganda. In some cases Communists also hold the ministries of food and tnin-isteri s of foreign affairs. With these key ministries lliey have rigid control of the police and secret service while the ministries of armed forces insure the direction of the army.-air force and navy. These bodies tend to prevent uprisings and protect governments despite popular feelings. The ministries of propaganda control press, radio, magazines, cinemas, theaters and in some degree churches virtually all mediums of expression. The ministries of education formulate what youth shall he taught and tend to groove thinking.- M'ide Belt of Land Seizee". What: has Kussia gained from practices critized by many? From Moscow's standpoint a wide protective belt of land has been obtained. The Kremlin contends that any t rrifory added or areas placed under Soviet domination is done to insure security for Kussia against future attack. As an example of what one hears now hut not a year ago are .statements to the effect that Kussia nev-i r fired a shot in the world war until invaded frontally by Germany. The fact that Kussia made a pact with Germany on the eve of Hitler's plunge into Poland at a time when Moscow was dealing with France and Britain is being discussed. Additionally, it is. now being said in Britain that all during the time when Hitler wras invading, sinashiii'g and looting Poland, France. Denmark, Norway, Holland. .Belgium, Czechoslovakia. Yugoslavia and Greece, Kussia did nothing materially or morally to oppose Nazism and aggression. More Criticism of Russia. A year ago such comment simply would not have been voiced. But today it grows. This is an example of how far back popular support of Russia's policy has slipped. Many-organs which soft-pedalled anything critical on Russia are beginning to take warm up pitches and there are a growing number of pitchers in the bullpen. In Central Europian and Balkan countries any anti-Russian comment still is strictly taboo. But these same publications present the weakness and mistakes of the west with the greatest freedom. The Doctor Says: By WILLIAM A. Typhoid fever O'BRIEN at M. D. a common infection ing the summer and last year, according one tune was in cities dur-early fall. But to the Journal of the American Medical Association. .")( American cities reported no deaths from typhoid fever. Better sanitation lias been the most important, factor in reducing the -typhoid-fever toll. susceptibility to typhoid fever is general. Injections of typhoid vaccine, however, impart, protection against the disease for about two years, with more permanent iin-nntnity developing in those who have inid the infection. Typhoid fever is caused by a genii which enters the body through the mouth, usually in food or drink. 7 Typhoid germs pass .through the stomach unharmed, and when they reach' the small intestine they produce inflammation and ulceration. The germs enter Hie blood through the bowel and cause enlargement of the spleen, toxic reaction in the organs,, and a skin eruption (rose spots). , . Fever Lasts 3-4 Weeks. Infection develops, On the aver- ige. one to two weeks after exposure, and it. lasts three to four weeks. The onset is often so gradual that some typhoid-fever patients are up and about on their feet for some time before they take to their beds. Typhoid germs are spread by fingers, food, and flies. Every patient with the disease is a source of infection to others unless special precautious are taken to destroy, by disinfection, the ger.ns in the stools and urine. Nursing technique for contagions disease should lie practiced with all bowel infections, just to be on the safe side. Every patient recovering from typhoid fever passes the germ in his stools and urine for a time: and in exceptional cases recovered patients harbor the germs for years, thus being called '"carriers." Carriers who handle food are a menace to others unless they practice scrupulous" ' sanitation. The most famous carrier was Typhoid Mary, a cook who was responsible for n dozen epidemics in her lifetime. v Water Causes KMdeniics. Infected water 1ms been the Othman In Washington By FREDERICK t.

I say this without fear of contradiction after siK'iidiiig a day watching the magicians in the House of Representatives pass at will thy it v it a I ion ) through a locked door. Iloudini couldn't have done better. You renumber a while back about Rep. John Rankin, of Miss., pulling the rule book on Rep. Vifo Mar-cant onio. of X. Y.. when the latter tried to gel a vote on the fair employment commission. Rankin pro duced so many roll calls, quorum calls and other legislative abracadabra, that Marc-antoitio never had a chance. Time passed and here was Rankin seeking a vote on whether he could hold,, in .. contempt a couple of gents he called parlor pinks for refusing to let him look at their' r cords. Marcantonio took a flyleaf from the Rankin book and, hlooie! The 'world's greatest legis lative body was forced to spend an entire ' session' voting on whether to unlock the door. It's got to be open under the rules if the House is to do business. Each time Rankin made the routine motion to open same lit was open all along). Marcantonio demanded a vote. Each time the membership voted, it got. no quorum, because too many congressmen either had gone' home, or were downstairs eating the special 05 cent hamburger lunch. So Speaker Sain Ra.vburn woujd send the serg aiit-at-arins to call the hungry lawniakirs away from their meat. They'd vote present and rush back to their cold food. Then Rankin would call for a vote on that pesky door and Marcantonio would raise the point of no quorum, and so on. ad infinitum, until the reading clerk got hoarse, Marcantonio suggested handcuffs and the irked speaker remarked at one stage of the proceedings : "Thirty five, members have escaped since the last roll call (three minutes earlier) and so the clerk will Call the roll." Up jumped the lumhless ones from their still untouched plate of ground meat with frigid mushroom sauce and again the routine went on. like a cracked phonograph record. And on and on it went until Rep. Earl C. 'Michener, of Midi., said why not shoo all the legislators i"to the chamber and keep the doors locked? Marcantonia said, yes, and why not snap handcuffs on. 'em? The speaker said he did not think this would be cricket. Tlie roll calls continued, Marcantonio studied the funny papers; Rankin, sitting two seats from him in a rumpled while linen suit, thumbed the rule book. Occasionally they'd snarl at each other in a gentlemanly way, of course, but the way they put vinegar in the word "gentleman" made you taste persimmons. The folks in the galleries idea what was, going on. Reading Clerk George J. Mauer ran out of cough drops and when I left, the representatives of the sovereign states still were trying to get their door unlocked. They also were trying to get their lunch. Congressmen. I love you. I like to watch you sneak out to lunch through a locked door and rush back in to vote again and again and again on whether to unlock the door that hasn't, actually been locked since lStl4. HI H Mil Will Cfte WASHINGTON l h) HI M.W MERRY-00-ROUND lv DREW PIAKSON ; PARIS It is always easy to give advice from the side lines and if the newsmen now coaching, the American Secretary of State, James F. Byrnes, were really running the Conference of Paris, it would probably accomplish even less. However, this observer having attended many international parleys from the Washington Arms Conference of 1921 to the present humbly offers two suggestions : 1. The United State has become so confused trying to straighten out the back alleys of Trieste that we have lost sight of the guiding stars for which we fought the Four Freedoms and i he Atlantic Charter. 2. Any treaty signed at Paris will be a mere scrap of paper unless there is good will between peoples to guarantee that its terms are carried out. No Hodgepodge Treaty Wanted. Some old-school diplomats have the idea that if .Secretary Byrnes should return from Paris without a treaty, it would be a defeat for American diplomacy and a setback to world peace. On the contrary, it might be extremely healthy to end this conference without a treaty, especially if that treaty is a hodgepodge which adds to the unrest of the world while simultaneously lulling the American lK'ople to sleep. . If Secretary Byrnes should de-- maud here that Russia sign a treaty Even modest the any price more. of drei isll 1, commonest source of large epi demies of typhoid fever through the years, and infected raw milk is the usual cause of smaller outbreaks. (Pasteurization, of course, destroys the germs in milk). Other sources of infection are contamination- of food resulting from the washing of utensils in infected water, flies which have come into contact with infected excreta, and ' contaminated hands and objects. City and state health departments supply free typhoid tests for all persons suspected of having the dis-ense. Samples of blood, urine, or stools are submitted to these department for analysis. , ' giving American. British and other members of the United Nations free access to the Russian people, it would be worth all the agreements on Trieste, Italian reparations and the Balkans which he could negotiate in a year. If he should demand that American students and professors have the same right to visit Russia that Russians are granted by tbe U. S., that American movies, books, and magazines be admitted to Russia, that American newspapermen and the ordinary John Q. Citizen have the right to travel in Russia, it would do more to stabilize world peace than all the' other treaties imaginable. It is quite true, of course, that Byrnes would not get a "free access to Russia" treaty. Russia's M. Molotov would scream to high heavens, tear his hair and claim this was not on tne agencta. tie wouia even accuse Byrnes of sabotaging the pea ce. However, that is no reason for not putting M. Molotov on fbe spot. He has put plenty of others on the spot. Kremlin Fosters Distrust. Furthermore, the world at. large including a small but vocal pro-Communist segment of the American people needs to be educated to the fact that the Russians simply do not want, friendship with the oulside world. They thrive on distrust and suspicion. In fact, the Kremlin has a better hold on the Russian people when they are suspicious of outsiders. That is why all Moscow radio broadcasts, why all the Russian newspapers, constantly warn of the capitalist menace and claim the United States bristles with people eager to massacre innocent Russian peasants. For some strange reason no one in the United States has ever called the Russian bluff. The State Department has made polite overtures, it is true, but no high official has ever stood up publicly and told the Kremlin that it is time for a showdown as to whether Russia wants peace and understanding between the Russian and American people. I can think of no better place to call for such a showdowr than at a conference convened for the purpose of establishing peace. Has Lost World Leadership. However, thg unfortunate but inescapable fact is that the United States has lost its world leadership. Our diplomats have been led through so many Venezia Giulia labyrinths and up so many Trieste blind alleys with Slav diplomats yapping at their heels that they are weary and confused. They have partly lost their bearings. The small nations knew we had no ulterior motives. They knew we had only one great objective, permanent peace, but they have seen us get bogged down, outwitted and sidetracked time after time. The fox Molotov, who they know has only his own ax to grind, has taken us off the trail, confused us, and led us around in circles. Good Will Needed. The small remnant of a treaty we are now called upon to sign means nothing. Molotov has whittled it down until it chiefly settles' a few points he wants settled and almost none of tbe problems we want settled. Austria can't he dis cussed, lheretore, Russian troops can still remain in Austria, can still send reinforcements to Yugoslavia, and Yugoslavia, backed by the Red Army, can find an excuse to move into Trieste the day after U. S. -British troops move out. In other words, whatever treaty is signed here means nothing unless it is based on the firm foundation of good will between peoples. The United States and Great Britain will never fight each other because the bond between their peoples is too strong. They understand each other and they would impeach overnight any President or Prime Minister who proposed war between them. Byrnes' Big Obstacle. But friendship between the Russian and American people, while anxious to sprout, has no sou m which to grow. The leaders, in Moscow will not permit, it. Briefly, that is the big obstacle Secretary Byrnes must overcome before he can bring home anything which even remotely bears resemblance to a treaty of peace. Until we re-emphasize the lofty goals for which we fought this war, any peace treaty signed at Paris will be mere mockery. It would be far better to sign nothing than to come a way from the conference with a piece of paper supposed to fulfill the great hopes for which men fought but which , actually means so little. Quotations I'M afraid our foreign policy has been too definitely pro-British. Take the case of Trieste. We followed the British lead there. It was the French, not ourselves, who proposed a compromise acceptable to both the Russians and British. Sen. George D. Aiken (R) of Vermont.
