And It looks as i£ more bad news is yet to come. After only nine months in power, Winston Churchill's Tory government already is knee-deep in trouble. Many , observers on the scene believe that if. a general election were held now, the Churchill government would lose. Jn /act, the latest poll puts the Socialists out ahead in popular support by 8.5 per cent. The problems 'are many and varied. Some were inherited from the Socialist government. Others the Conservatives have brought upon themselves. Britain's trade balance, vital to her very existence, is running more anct more against her. Her dollar and gold reserves dropped markedly and might have dropped more except for support by America. • The Conservatives had great plans -for bringing food prices down. But food prices have gone up. The much-heralded plan for denationalization of certain important industries has, to all intents and purposes, failed to materialize. The Germans and the Japanese are cutting into British export markets. To top it all, -the popularity of Churchill himself appears to be suffering. Even members of his own parly have been recently critical of the way the 77-year-old prime minister is handling things. They have suggested lie either get out or at least share leadership of the government with younger men. Against tbi.s melancholy background, I'rime Minister Churchill tins summoned the House of Commons for deliato on "jrrave and far-reaching matters." Just what (hose mailers will be is not defi- niiely known. But a good guess would be some means of giving British exports a shot in the arm. U'halever the outcome of ihe Commons debate, it will be of dollars-and- cenls interest to this country. America has for some lime been helping take up the slack in the sagging British economy. The chances are that we shall have to continue to do so in one form or another. The question is how much slack do ^s•e have to take up and for how long a lime? The results of the coming debate in Commons should provide at least part of the answer. New York Industries Act On Alcoholism Problem Americans as a nation are a pretty hard-drinking crew, and as such inevitably carry things too far sometimes. In fact, the problem of alcoholism, when recognized for Hie extensive national ill thai it is, becomes disturbingly serious. There arc few uf us who, right in our own lives, have not been touched nl some time by the pffecls of too much drinking. It can be a hrother-in^law, a fallx-r, a cousin, a good friend. It can even lie a sister or a mother. Tippling unfortunately isn't confined to men. Happily, the extent anil nature of Die problem have been recognized by our lop medical men and by the government. It's pretty well understood now that alcoholism is a disease with mysterious and hidden roots, anil il is being attacked as such. One of the leaders in research on (lie subject is the Vale University Center of Alcohol Studios. Numerous other schools have similar programs. On the non-scientific side is Alcoholics Anonymous. In that rial ion-wide organization former alcoholics have done wonderful work in helping others to get back on the right track. Drugs have been developed such a.s anlabusc, which makes a per.son sick if be drinks alcohol. For some years business and industry have been aware that alcoholism is one of the greatest destroyers of personal efficiency. It has been estimated that alcoholism among employes costs the nation's industry $1 million a year. That includes absenteeism, accidents, errors, inefficiency and poor public relations. In New York City certain industries bave gotten together to see what can be done about the matter. Kirsl they attended a conference sponsored by the new Consultation Clinic, for Alcoholism at New York Univcrsily-Bellcvue Medical Center. There, the industrial representatives heard explanations from experts of the whole problem facing industry. Then they were invited to send to the clinic for treatment those of their employes who needed il. The idea is that foremen be charged with the responsibility of reporting to their company's medical officials the names of those workers in need of help. After a preliminary screening, the medical officials would r be empowered to send the men lo the new Consultation Clinic for extended treatment. The clinic treatment might consist of individual sessions with a psychiatrist, meetings with oilier groups of alcoholics, use of remedial dings, or perhaps joining Alcoholics Anonymous. Ha proponenIs-realize, that the program, as initially applied within industries, is going to be in for some criticism and considerable joke-making. But if the results arc significantly good in reclaiming the careers and even lives of chronic drinkers, they believe the obstacles to the program can be overcome. The action by the Now York industries is a positive, intelligent approach to a serious problem. And best of all. success in their program can mean its extension to other parts of the country. Views of Others Things to Invent ''Oh, me. Everything has been discovered. Everything lias been invented. There is nothing new in the world for u young man to do." This remark, in subs t a nee, was supposed to have been, made by a youth almost a thousand years before the birth of Christ. Think of the things which had not hecn hi vented, the nrea.s which had not. been diM-o\ered or explored and the knowledge which had not been ynined nt thai time.

Ask David Kefauver, Age Six CHICAGO ~(NEA>— A passible Republican - Democratic romance flowered behind the scenes of the two presidential nominating con- ventiony. It involves the Kefauvcr nd Nixon families. In Washington, thy live not far from each other In tile northwestern suburb of Spring Valley. The Kefauvers linve lived there for several years, but the Nixons just recently bought nnd moved into I'clcr Eels a brand new house. The Kefauvers have tour children, three girls nnd n hoy, mid the Nixons have two daughter, Son IJavici Kcfnuvcr and daughter Patricia Nixon ore both (J, and they're in the same room at school. When Mrs. Kolnuver was nskcct if the two children were thnt xvay about each other, she replied, "Oh! I'll have to let David speak :or himself." David was vacationing with his grandparents in Tennessee: while his parents were Chicago. * • • Senator (ireeu'.s Ual Trick Sen. Tht-odore Francis Green ol Rhode Island, who is also vice chair Limn of the Democratic National Committee, en me up unofficially with at least the most nov el. if not the best solution, for h::> party's ballcd-np con- veivlioii sir .lightened out. This was in the lire-convention week, whrn Ihci'c were 19 candidates In the fietd running around cucles and nobody "Put the names of alt 19 candidates on slips of paper," suggested Senator Green. "Put all the names n n hat. Then let President Trunan or National Chairman Frank McKinney or somebody draw out wo nnmes. Any two names," the senator specified. Spanks 'Km With IManks Senator Green probably had as much fun nt Chicago as anybody, was on the platform commit- .ce, and sat through nil Its long ienrings. He took a particular de- lifjlit in asking embarrassing questions of witnesses who were sure they had ull the answers. When Allan B. Kline, head of the American Farm Bureau, was presented his all-Inclusive farm program before the Democrats, he let It be known he had also presented this plan to the, GOP. Green wanted to know how much of it the Republicans had taken. Kline said it was a silly question. Green then forced the farm, leader to admit that (he Republicans ha d n* t ado p Led any of it. * * * Convention Bugg During the Republican convention, the Blackstone was also the headquarters for t he G O P Old Guard, who took such a beating from the Eisenhower forces. As one crass newspaper man was rude enough to say, "I have n theory " '.hat all these people crawl into the Blackstone woodwork after every Chicago convention, next ans' home. By tradition, the Blackslone has always been where the real foig shots -stayed. It was in the Black- itone that the famous "smoke- illed room" conference was held hat picked Warren G. Harding as a, Republican compromise candidate in 1020. This time, at the Blackstone, were such Chairman. One college man I* another "What do you hear from the tin die-world?"

Vic's reaction to the remake of ils biggest film hit, "What Price Glory?" is a sour smile and, "It's musical, isn't it?" As a silent film, "Glory" was a tremendous hit, he remembers.

The hero was Alan p. Harvey. Jr.. of Cincinnati, a member of the team that landed second in the ocntrst for the national team ing that dummy be embarrassed by the ruff. Harvey, playing the South hand, decided to ensure an entry to his own hand later on. He therefore ruffed the second round of diamonds with dummy's queen of hearts. At the third trick, Harvey returned a low trump from dummy. allowed West to take his king. West promptly returned a second trump, and this rode around to declarer's hand. Now South could lead a spade from liis own hand, and finesse dummy's Jack. East could win with the ace of spades, but was unable to defeat the contract. When he returned a diamond, dummy ruffed and cashed the top clubs and the dng of spades. Declarer then ruffed a spade in lis own hand, to win the last two tricks with the high trump and the last club. When this hand was played at Lhe other table the declarer riiffec the second diamond with a trump, and tackled the trump shit by laying down the ace and queen West took the king of hearts and led a third trump, after which South was unable to make his con tract, The defenders were bound t< get the ace of spades and a secon' diamond trick. 75 Years Ago In Blyf/ieviHe— Wire service reports have it that Rogers Hornsby is due to succeed huck Dressen as manager of tru Cincinnati Reds. * A U.
