Important, Visit. IN' THESE TIMES it-is never unimportant when West German Chancellor Konrad Adenauer pays a visit In the United Stales. And there are particular reasons wliy his current trip is significant. West Germany's prime political issue is unification wilh East Germany. Up to now that issue has been tightly linked with the questions of disarmament and European security in all discussions of a general European settlement. But lately President Eisenhower has indicated that he is eager to undertake some kind of limited, experimental disarmament effort with the Soviet Union.— regardless o£ developments in related fields. Whitney Bollon Glancing Sideways Phyllii Bundle Assignment: America •• NEW YORK—New Yorkers— and probably Boslonians, or anyone else—have a way of developing sudden and militant enthusiasm for matters searcly thought of before the enthusiasm developed. Across Iho years a wide area has been covered from miniature golf to open-roofed laxis lo pin shirts with gray flannel suits. The newest craze which has seized the boys and girls, is the individual helicopter. They dream of them, talk of them, hone for them—they all but lastc Ihem. Reflecting this sudden mushroom of desire for personal commuting equipment, two magazines plan articles on the subject. One, a Sunday supplement publication, already has touched on it.

Is Not Conquest THE GERMANS'ARE deeply worried over this because they believe that if disarmament becomes separated from reunification, the effect will be lo make permanent the partition of Germany. Mr. Eisenhower's task manifestly is to convince Adenauer, and through him the West German people, that this is not so, that we will hot slacken in our attempts to achieve a unified Germany within the context of a secure Europe. The price of failure in this task could he high, since Adenauer must stand this September in new German elections. To carry home an unsatisfactory answer on this big question would be to predispose himsoH to defeat. WASHINGTON' — Outbreaks of arili-Amcricanism in Formosa and Japan over incidents involving our troops hark to Ihe pasl era of British outposts around Ihe world. And. of course, to Iludyard Kipling. Ihc voice of il all. He glorified Ihe Empire and tried to sanctity "the while man's burden" and spoke of "lesser breeds without the law." Much British smugness went along wilh so much of England lhat also was Our situation is not the same, of course. But whal has happened on our far-flung perimeter suddenly awakens us lo the new mission which, if reluctantly, we hove taken upon ourselves in Ihe world — a mission to which we arc not accustomed by heritage or tradition and for which we clearly are not yet trained. THE ALMOST CERTAIN winner would he the West German Socialist party, which is committed to seeking a deal with Russia, Germany's withdrawal from the vital NATO defense orbit and its own disarmament and neutralization. Adenauer obviously is one of America's and the West's firmest friends. And Germany's place' in NATO is a key one. We cannot afford lo see a staunch ally converted into a weak and pliant neutral. Reassuring Adenauer and the West Germans at this moment is a delicate assignment. Bui it is one that President Eisenhower dare not fumble. Ol'H MISSION" is different from (hat of the British. But it is true that we have taken over from them in various parts of the world — and at their Teeniest Fiid bidding — because it finally £Nt to the point where they could not afford it any longer. It started when they notified .us they were having to pull out of Greece, which the Russians then were trying to subvert. So we produced the "Truman l)oc- Irinc," moved in. and saved Greece and Turkey. Britain got her empire by conquest. We have watched it disintegrate before our eyes in our time. It melted away before the hot breath of nationalism — a spirit of independence which, incidentally, we helped to inspire nearly two eenlurics ago when we staged Ihe first successful colonial uprising againsl the same Britain. Our mission is not conquest. It is lo strengthen allies as oul- uosts for our own front line of defense to withstand another Ihrcat in Ihe world. This is a new imperial threat, (hough it comes clothed in (be guise of international Communism. WE ARE THERE, it must always be remembered, not out of allruism — though we like to be- livc there is some of lhat — but to protect our [jvvn necks. Our self-interest has been emphasized lime and again by President Eisenhower. \Ve arc guarding what we look upon as the new frontier of freedom against the new imperialism. Not entirely new for Russia, lhat imperialism goes back to "the bear that walks like- a man." as Rudyard Kipling described Czarisl Russia half a century ago and more, warning ag-ainst making a Iruce with her. We are in couniries where we have oulposls by their leave—it is. in facl. a privilege. Our mission to protect ourselves requires building of friendship wilh the people who live in those chosen outer ramparts. This is a hard task, since we show ourselves in the dual role of soldiers and philanthropists. NEITHER is a happy role, for each implies condescension de- spile all we say or do. No people like soldiers of another nation in Iheir country. Nnr do they like to be reminded t.iat they are unfor- tunate and poverty - stricken which is what we do by the very affluence we radiate, the money that we throw around so lavishly. One of our soldiers shoots one of their people. The reason really docs not matter. Our soldier may have been entirely justified. The only real point is that it was an American soldier and an American bullet. Our Stole Department officials are being represented as ascribing Ihe emotional frenzy in Formosa to resentments for which th> incident became an outlet. Among them, it is surmised, is natural jealousy of our standards of living, which they observe in our representatives who live among them. We need to take a good look at ourselves just now and see what we are trying to do in the world. BECAUSE we arc doing some- Hung for other people- or so we seem lo look at it—is no reason why they should like us. We think they should be grateful, and our first reaction lo what happened in Formosa is to deplore their ingratitude. Between us are wide chasms resulting from different cultures that can be bridged, if at all. only with great difficulty. We must always remember, too. that. in the last analysis, we are doing II,is for ourselves. Our people who go out over Ihe world on this delicate mission should learn humility and tolerance and patience and understanding—our soldiers, our civilian government employes, and our tourists.

Nagler has said that, currently, a safe machine, dependable and simple, would cost about S40.000. He is slaving lo cut that to S10.000 and hopefully, in lime, lo 57,000.

I.MrNauehl Syndicate, Inc.} Frederick Olhnuin Forever Seems A Long Time We Guard Health WHILE THE DEBATE goes on about how to provide wider and more complete health insurance protection for Americans, it is interesting to note that some 70 per cent of the civilian population already has some form of voluntary health coverage. The Health Insurance Council says that if accident and sick pay be included, then the tolal benefits paid under voluntary health insurance programs in 1956 came lo 3.6 billion dollars. The estimates favor a still laryer figure in 19o/. Altogether, as of May 1, 195<, some 118 million Americans were prolecled against the cost of hospital expenses through voluntary programs, and 103 million were covered for surgical expenses. The hospilal care total rose by eight million in the past year, and the surgical care figure by nine million. This isn't the whole story, of course. America pays a whopping medical bill every year and these sums represent just part of it. And it isn't clear how- many of the nation's neediest -in terms of medical help—fall into the 30 per cent of the population wilh no voluntary coverage at all. Nevertheless, the Council's report is highly encouraging as evidence that the American people arc steadily broadening their safeguards against the financial ravages of ill health. Pelcr Etlson "Tight Money" Hits National Debt Program WASHINGTON 7 — IXEA' - H would be nice to pay off the iia- 'liona! debt—and it could be. done- it you and every other man. woman and child in the counlry would only pony up about I .MO bucks apiece. That's about what the whopping 274 - billion - dollar national debt averages out per person. Now. how lhat debt has been managed will be one of the prime investigations by Sen. Harry F, Byid's Finance Committee. Here are some of the background fact.s they'll check into: When Ihe F.isenhimcr administration fiscal team of Treasury Secy. George M. Humphrey and Undersecretary W. Randolph Burgess came to town in KC4, they had inherited a 2fifi-hillinn- diillar national debt. They aimed to put more of il on a loug- lorm re-financing basis, lo a degree Ibcy have succeeded. IX A LITTLE over four years the government's floating debt has been reduced by some 20 billion dollars—from 8.5 billion lo S5 billion. This big floating debt, held outside the Federal Reserve, was accumulated during (he war when a lot of 2'i per cent bonds were sold. This wasn't hard lo do at Ihe lime. Insurance companies and banks had no place else lo invest their money. Since the end of Ihe war, holders of Ihese 26 per cenl bonds have been selling them off as fasl as Ihey could. Their purpose has been lo rcinvcsl in industry or municipal securities paying higher inlere.sl This has freuently pinched Ihe Treasury in refinancing the public debt. It is doing so now. Converting the debt to long-lcrm issues hasn'l been as easy as anticipated. r> 19.i5 nearly two billion dollars' worth of 40-year bonds were marketed at three per cent. These were big issues. They brought the government's long-term debt —maturing in 10 years or more— lo 33 billion dollars. In 1934 and 13.i5 the Treasury did a lot of spreading out in threc-lo eight- year issues. This was to Iry lo get more government securities maturing in manageable amounts at regular intervals, instead of having big issues maturing in a bunch. During the past 18 months, however, with the money market as tighl as a drum, the Treasury hasn'l been able lo do much long- range refinancing. This month the Treasury would have had to offer 3"< per cenl inlercst lo sell an appreciable amount ol long- term bonds, according to one official. WASHINGTON"—Whether we're all going to glow green eventually and 'disintegrate under atomic fallout. I don't know. One group of top scientists fears (he worst. Another group says Ihe Atomic Energy Commission has the deadly dust from the big bombs under control. The gents on both sides, with ami without whiskers, are equally impressive.

THE GENTLEMEN have set aside the next two weeks for questioning of Ihe physicists on v.hcthcc atoms ever will end life on this old globe. The lawgivers are worried. One small incident in the Senate caucus room also indicates they're scared. They'd barely started delving into the jittery subject of atomic fallout and the dangers of strontium-M when there was a small explosion, a loud buzzing and a blinding, blue flash about three feel away from Senator John W.

Holifield asked him to explain whal he mcanl by a half life. DR. MILLS said lhat meant it would take 28 years for half a smudge of strontium-90 to disappear. He said il would take .-mother 28 years for the remaining half lo go away. And so on. "How long does it take for it lo completely decay?" asked the gentleman from California. "Forever." replied Dr. Mills. He thought a minute about strontium halving itself every 23 years and added: "But after a while 'a couple of hundred years, maybei, you haven't much ietl." GRADUATES OF THE class of 1335 are those who nol only came out of college lo be bounced around in a depression — they also wenl to war and didn't all return. Added to that, they are at or over lh« j, cc of 40—Ihe age when sonic people say life begins and others say, "Good heavens, I've had il." It is a lime, like New Year's Eve, for looking back and peering forward, always waiting a bit uncomfortably for something to give them a sign. Are Ihey. as Pitkin promised, figurative babes? Or are they, as (he "I've had il" people shakily suspect, corpus-elccli? These are the ones who have enough lo reflect upon, without going through Ihe emotional Irauma of renewing eontacl wilh Iheir once dimply and pimply friends, and roaming a campus full of swcel young things in caps and gowns.

In 77is/orv From The Times Files Danger In Lotteries ".ANYTHING to reduce taxes." This must be the explanation of the surprising results of a reccnl public opinion .survey. Asked whether they would favor a federal lottery lo reduce taxes. 59 per rent answered "yes." only 28.6 per cent "no." and 12.'4 expressed no opinion. This approval of a federal lottery could scarcely be the result of considered thought. A country is impoverished when ils citizens spend Ihcir money in gambling instead of productive work. The "numbers racket'' has been the bane of slum dwellers, and is one reason why many have not been able to afford a better environment. In some sections the community is overrun wilh horse and dog races, and great numbers of people have no thoughts for anything else, even their jobs and families. In the Ifllh century Louisiana had a state lottery whoso abuses finally caused it to be abolished. The same result would happen if Uncle Sam established a national lottery. But before il was abolished 't might do untold damage. TEN YEARS \CO Jlay 31. 1317 Doalh of Charles O. Hehner, 51. nesn's Cove Road: Mrs. Kmm.i .). Clem, Wcstcrnport: ^Irs. .loscpli Klkins. 69.

I'm afraid t!,ty <fidn r t learn much. The trouble was Dr. Mills said he couldn't talk without a blackboard in front nl him. So Ihe clerks wheeled up a blackboard.

This strontium - 90, fluttering HISTORICALLY, ons of the great preoccupations of law has been the effort to prevent invasion of privacy and to guarantee lo each individual Ihe righl to live his own life as long as he does not harm or offend society. Various new eleclronic listening devices Ihrealcn to nullify these safeguards unless properly con- IrollM. There is now a kind of microphone, for example, which can pick up a subdued conversation several hundreds yards away. By hiding a small wireless unit in a car, an investigator—or anyone else, wilh motives ranging from curiosity lo downright criminal intent—fan listen in on conversations from anolher car following blocks behind. A tiny microphone hidden in a room can pick lip conversations and make them audible lo the avid listener in Ihe next room or even hundreds of feet distant. There is nothing intrinsically vrong with these electronic wonders. Properly used, they can be valuable tools. In Ihe hands of law enforcement agencies, for instance, they can be a real hrlp in the war against crime. But even law enforcement agencies need guidance and con- tro. in Ihe use of these devices. Ca- eful limits must he set on how fa even a law officer can go in violating the privacy of citizens. George Dixon Washington Scene WASHINGTON —The Chowder and Marching Club is a group of younger Republicans in Congress who meet one night each week lo exchange chaff, cheers, and chips. A charier member is Vice President Richard M. Nixon. There are times the^e dayi when he wishes he wasn't. The Xo. 2 man is cxpccling lo be summoned any minute bv Ihe No. I man and told: "Try lo open up those chowder clams of yours a litlle:" President Eisenhower is so annoyed with the members of the exclusive club within a club he'd like to throw his legislative overalls into the chowder.
