McCarthy go, now that he has openly shattered all ties with a President of his own party? The courses available to him would appear to be several: 1. He could help to form or take part in a third political party. The senator says at the "present time" he hag no such thought, but he has not quite closed the door. 2. He might try to lead or participate in the right-wing move to seize control of the Republican Party from Mr. Eisenhower, with the specific aim of denying him the GOP presidential nomination in 1956. McCarthy's statement that h« will go on working -within the party —at least for now—is not a clear indication of intent with respect to party control. 8. He might seek to build for himself a sort of solitary citadel of individual power, counting upon his considerable popular following to assure him the strength for continued political existence. As the President noted in commenting on the break, the third-party road is a hard one to travel. The forces McCarthy represents are a minority in a party that is now the minority party in the nation. Faced with the decision to leave the GOP fold and follow the senator to new fields, some of his supporters might well say no. The history of third parties in America is not encouraging. What could a new one thus composed hope to achieve? Most likely not its own success, but the defeat of the Republican Party at the polls in 1956. Certainly that defeat would not necessarily follow, for in 1948 the Democrats survived both the Wallace and Dix- iecrat defections to keep the presidency and regain the Congress. As for McCarthy and others attempting to seize the GOP veins and push the President out, this too is not an easy path. The Democrats, who want very much to get the White House in Iflofi. nevertheless show a very cagey respect for Mr. Eisenhower's high stature with the American people. One cannot help wondering how many Republicans would wish to engage in the spectacle of trying to cast into oblivion a President of their own party who broke all voting records in 1952 and maintains almost undiminished popularity. Naturally, the story would be different if the President chose not to run. Then the GOP almost surely would be torn by an internal struggle that would eclipse even the bitter Taft-Eisenhower contest of 1952. Instead of these two dificult avenues, McCarthy might choose, or be forced to accept, a kind of isolation. Being (till fairly younj?, he might be content with this of course in the hope that sooner or later tides would turn and bring large elements of the GOP back to him. At least temporarily, McCarthy is isolated now. He has abandoned that part of the party which controls it and with him in this break. Until that Is yet plain who and how many he takes is governing the United States. It is not clear, the full meaning of his act cannot be measured. Eden, a Friend It ought not to be overlooked that Sir Anthony Eden, British foreign secretary, is doing a great deal to foster improved relations between his country and our own. Recently a bemused Laborite of leftist leanings protested strong action against Red China for its imprisonment of the 13 alleged American "spies." The Labor member implied the Reds probably were telling the truth. Eden slapped him down in blunt language. Again and again he has shown refreshing sympathy for the American viewpoint, recognition of the incredible burdens we bear in the world struggle, and understanding of our national character. The very least we can do, it would seem, is to repay such generous- spirited leadership in kindness. VIEWS OF OTHERS After All, Who Spends It? With some Justification the women in this country felt cheated and thought their Interest* wore overlooked when the new Income tax revision laws went Into effect. Many of them feel, and rightly so, thai as long as women spend 90 percent of the country's money, some consideration should be made of their viewpoint when income tax InWB are passed or changed. Two organizations, whose membership Include* the nation's "most calculating" females (accountants and CPA's), have declared at their annual joint meeting that women should be consulted when tax measures are up lor Congressional consideration. As a result of this non-consultation, the tux revision law this year made inadequate provision lor deduction of money spent by work- Ing mothers for child care. To the suggestion put forward by the American Society of Womnn, Accountnnts and the American Women's Society of Certified Public Accountants, we would like to acid a few of our own. We have been told "never to underestimate the power of a woman." Why don't the women, with so much untapped power, get behind Congress to reduce taxes? As women spent! so much of the country's money, it should still be natural for them to want more to spend. Reduction of taxes would give thrm a little more spending money. It mlfiht help out the husbands too, for after all, the present ten percent alloti'd them is pretty small potatoes. The percentage might remain the same under tax reduction, but the amount would be greater. What about it, Ladies?—Portsmouth (Vo.) Star. Of All Places-ln Texas!

McCarthy's Rubicon Erskme Johnson IN HOLLYWOOD HOLLYWOOD —(NEA)— Exclusively Yours: Tita Phillips is telling absolutely all in her serialized story of marriage to Edmund " in in Peter tdson's Washington Column — Administration Has a Job Getting Its Foreign Policy Coordinated WASHINGTON —(NEA)— One of the biggest problems of the Elsenhower administration in the coming year will be to get its foreign economic policies straightened out. The lack of coordination on these matters was most recently demonstrated at the Inter-Ameri- cnn Conference of Finance and Economic Ministers in Rio tic Janeiro, Brazil. The U. S. delegation to this all- Important meeting went to Hio with a very definite, carefully worked-out program. Its basis was Unit there would not be any grandiose giveaway to the Latin-Ameri- cnn good neighbors. Instead, they were to be treated as business partners. Individual loans and other assistance were to be offered instead, for sound projects only. The American team to sell this program svns headed by RtcreUry of the Treasury George M. Humphrey. Undersecretary " f Stale Herbert Hoover, Jr., Assistant Secretary of State Henry F. Holland, who Is in charge of intcr-Americfin affairs. Secretary Holland had made a swing around South America hist summer to lay the groundwork for Ibis new policy. Secretary Hoover had previously been employed irs geologist by a number of Latin-American republics, so he knew his Way around, it WHS Sec- relary Humphrey's (rip to the Southern Hemisphere, but he was Mr. U. S. Money. The American delegation had no more tlian arrived in Bio and opened the conference than three things happened. One—Foreign Operations Administrator Harold E. Stassen held a news conference in Washington in which he revealed that the Administration Was considering a new and enlarged Asia aid program, smaller but on the order of the Marshall Plan for Europe. This news, cnbleti to Rio, threw the Latinos into an uproar. The new good-partner program wasn't nny too popular with them in the first place. They all fell that they were Uncle Sam's oldest and best friends and that they had been given the short end of the stick. The United States had given billions of while it American cousins. Now the U. S. was proposing to give other billions to Asia, while It still held out on Latin America. As one Latin-American delegation sokesman explained to Secretary Humphrey In effect: "We know" that what you are proposing for us is right, but you have done such foolish things all over the world, that we think you should give us more, too." Two — Congressman James G. Fulton (R about the opened. postwar aid to Europe, had shortchanged the Pa.) time arrived in Rio the conference ,. ,*...-.., "observer" for the House Foreign Affairs Committee. as But he made a public statement to the effect that Secretary Humphrey had come to Rio "with an empty briefcase." The effect was to make other delegations feel that the policy ol Messrs. Humphrey, Hoover anc Holland did not have the approval of the American Congress. Fulton proposed a billion-dollar aid program for Latin America as a substitute. Three—This idea was further encouraged by Sen. Homer E Cspehart (R., Ind.) who was an official member of the delegation. He announced In Rio that in the next Congress he would propose priority for Latin-American economic aid. It took all the persuasion that Secretaries Humphrey, Hoover and Holland could muster, ably backed up by Assistant Secretary of Uie Treasury Andrew Overby, to prevent the conference from being wrecked. In the end, they think they succeeded. The effects of all this hullabaloo, however, are apt to be just as pronounced in Washington as they were in Rio. In the first place. U is now admitted that Governor Stassen's trial balloon for an Asia aid program was most unfortunate as to timing. This break may hurt more than help what was intended to be a well-meant effort to keep free Asia from going Communist. ("The Egyptian") Purdom London newspaper.

Every experienced bridge play er should keep it in the back o his mind that the 4-3-2-1 poin count tends to overvalue queens and jacks.

But when a hand contains only queens and jacks, without a single ace or king, the point coun will be quite a bit higher than the true value of the hand.

The original count of the South hand was 15 points in high cards and 1 point for the doubleum. After the raise, however. South was entitled to count an additional point for his length in soaries.
