Chou En-ldi's Absurd Bids Dampen Asian Peace Hopes Foreign Minister Chou En-lai of Red China got the Geneva festivities off to a bumping start by stating- demands on Asia which the West cannot agree to. He wants the West to get out of Asia Altogether, to abolish all foreign military bases, withdraw all troops and stop remilitarizing Japan. He offers, in other words, a perfect prescription fr the Communist capture of the Orient. Since Chou En-lai understands very well that the West will not meet these absurd demands, why is he bothering to make them? " Obviously he is thinking of the propaganda effect, or one thing. It is no secret that the Western powers are not popular in Asia, even when they appear there in defense of Asian liberties. Everything they do is tainted with the memory of colonialism. The Communists, as we all know, have for years shrewdly exploited anti- colonialism and all the awakening urges of the long dormant Asiatics. Chou En- lai plays on this theme with a call for an all-Asiatic security pact. "Asia for the Asiatics" is the slogan. The only trouble, of course is that he doesn't mean Asia for all Asiatics—just some. He means Asia for Asiatic Communists, allied with the Soviet Union not in uplifting but exploiting the Asian masses. Chou En-lafs demands also may be the signal that the Reds do not expect or want any settlement to come out of Geneva. The spirited pre-Geneva campaign waged by Secretary of State Dulles has probably greatly lessened the prospect that the Communists could successfully woo the French into an illusory truce which would in time prove to be a sweeping Red political triumph in Indochina. Since that may be so, and since the Communists would never agree to a really honest settlement, they may have decided to fall back on their old tactics of using an international meeting solely to puff themselves up and to try to discredit the West. It was always conceivable, on the other hand that Moscow and friends may later modify demands as a demonstration of "sweet reasonableness." most nations, once having taken an extreme stand, are frozen in it. But Communist countries put attitudes on and take ^them off like a change of clothes, depending on the tactics of the moment. This element of unpredictability is never quite missing from 'any conference where the Reds are in attendance.

No one can say McCarthy-Army dispute does not have its little surprises. Who would have thought at the outset that a roomful of important U.S. officials would be debating the nature of a smile , and the identity of a particular hat showing in a picture ? Those little digressions entered at the point when the Army claimed Senator McCarthy's people had "doctored" a photograph to cut out others standing with Secretary of the Army Stevens and Pvt. G. David Schine. The full photograph showed another Army officer and the arm of a civilian, who held his hand. McCarthy scanned the picture intently and came up with his finding: "Not my hat." Well, if not, whose then? Or did it matter? Then there was this business about the smile. Schine was smiling, they all agreed. But was Stevens ? It was said to be important, as revealing his attitude toward the much-discussed Schine. Roy Cohn of McCarthy's staff said Stevens was smiling. The Army counsel, Joseph Welch, thought not. Cohn said maybe it should be called a "grim smile" To some people, Stevens looked just plain grim. Underneath this talk of the smile and the hat, there are some big issues, folks. Just keep your eyes glued to that TV scrlen, and you'll see. It may take a little time, but they'll come out. Views of Others Kidding The Girls The governor of Nebraska has recently appointed a woman, Mrs.-Eva Browning, to fill the un- expired term of the late Senator Dwight Griswold. In doing so the governor made some sort of history, since this will put two women in the Senate together lor the first time. But also in doing so Governor Crosby had a clear understanding that the new senator would step aside when the present term is out and leave the field clear for Governor Crosby to become Senator Crosby. One of the governor's aides is quoted as saying, "I think we-sewed up the woman's vote with this move!" If the appointment of Mrs. Browning does have this effect on the vote of the women of Nebraska, it will certainly not Speak very well of them, - If the women accept the idea that a politician can win their support by permitting one of their sex to sit in the Senate, until he is ready to take the seat himself, they are not showing a very high degree of intelligence, nor a high sense of political ethics. As a matter of fact if Mrs. Browning is willing to accept the appointment, not on the basis of her fitness but as a convenience to the government as means of keeping the seat warm for him and so he can swing the vote of sentimental women his way, she is not accepting in the spirit of public service at all: The appointranet is no compliment. In spite of their political emancipation, women are mostly being treated with something less than equality by most politicians. They are supposed to accept small crumbs with gratitude and it is suprising how often they do. There will be crowing because there is another woman senator. Two senators at once; isn't it wonderful! Women are coming into their own. And so on. Baloney. Mrs. Browning (who will probably make as good a senator as Governed Crosby) is going because he wants to kill two birds with one stone. He puts the Senate seat on ice for himself and he softsoaps the women into believing he is their friend. If the ladies swallow the governor's bait they are easily fooled.—Kingsport (Term). Times. A network of suitcase-size TV cameras working automatically from high observation toweVs may replace human forest rangers perched on their lonely lookout towers. At least a New England electronics company, the Raytheon Manufacturing Company of Waltham, Mass., has built some pilot models on the suggestion of two Louisiana television distributors. Tests recently completed showed that cameras rotating every two minutes can scan the countryside for miles around and flash a picture by microwave to a central control room fifty miles away. ' If the old-style forest ranger-observer may be knocked out technologically, the ranks of TV maintenance and repair men should swell by a corresponding number.—Dallas Morning News.

"What, I Wonder, Is the Ominous Noise I Hear?' Erskine Johnson. IN HOLLYWOOD HOLLYWOO D—(NEA)— Exclusively Yours: Only a few friends and family members have hearc the details of Maria Riva's critical illness that almost snuffed ou her life last year. But now I can reveal that the daughter of Marlene Dietrich spenl eight days near death in a boui with deadly bulbar polio in Israel last summer. Maria told me the story in a quiet, hushed voice. She had gone to Israel to costar in a TV series and to build a cerebral palsy clinic. She returned to her hotel one night and: "I began to feel a splitting headache.. It was as though my brains were trying to push out of my skull. For eight days, I was unconscious and they were certain I was going to die. I lost 30 pounds. Then I came out of it, by some miracle, and I heard myself saying, 'Where am I??' "That broke me up. No actress can afford to say, "Where am I?' I started to laugh. My husband says it was the most frightening thing in the world—to hear someone come back from death laughing." Peter id son's Washington Column — American Delegation at Geneva Is Playing Its Diplomacy by Ear WASHINGTON — (NBA) — The American delegation at Geneva is playing its diplomacy by ear. The United States probably never went into any international conference with a less clear idea of what might be gotten out of it. The fact that the fighting in Indo- China was still going on as the conference opened, plus the instability of the French political situation, make any predictions on the outcome impossible. For instance, when Secretary of State Dulles left Washington, he planned to come home at the end of the first week. But up to the time his return plane was scheduled to leave Geneva, there could be no certainty he would be aboard. The original plan for the conference was to take up the Korean peace first — for as much as 90 days—then go on to the Indo-China question. French insistence on moving up the Indo-Chinese talks could easily upset that schedule and make it necessary for Dulles to stay at Geneva indefinitely. Whether Dulles' early departure from Geneva will tend to reduce the chances of conference success is argued both ways. On the one hand, the Russians might say for propaganda purposes that his departure showed the United States did not want peace and did not want to relieve tensions in the Far East. On the other hand, there is even betting that since Dulles left the conference. Soviet Foreign Minis- ter V. M. Molotov will leave not far behind. On this theory, British, and French Foreign Ministers Anthony Eden and Georges Bidault would leave shortly thereafter—if not before. The three just couldn't afford to lower their prestige by staying on after Dulles had departed. If the Geneva conference is turned over to working- technicians, there is a possibility that peace for Korea and Indo-China might be dragged on for years, like the Austrian peace negotiations. There were two reasons why Dulles thought he could leave Geneva early. First was that Geneva was only overnight by air from Washington. He could return any time he was needed. The second reason was that he did not feel it necessary for him to be present during all the negotiations on the Korean peace treaty. He could see the peace train on the conference track — then leave. Though no advance text has been given out. there has been general agreement among the 16 United Nations defending Korea on the acceptable terms for a peace treaty. No other goal than complete unification of a free and independent Korea to the Yalu has ever been considered. There is some difference on how this unification may be attained. That's the job to be worked out at Geneva. It centers around the ques- tion of whether new elections shall be held in all of Korea to set up a new government, or whether the present Republic of Korea government under President Syngman Rhee shall be continued in South Korea, with new elections held only in North Korea. To achieve unification and have it accepted by the Communists, the United Nations ha*/e one principal bargaining point. That is the ultimate withdrawal of all foreign troops from Korean soil. The sticker here is that the Chinese Communists want to talk about troop withdrawal first, with elections to come later. The UN position is that unification must come first, to be followed by troop withdrawal. The United States has made only three commitments to President Rhee on Korean peace: 1. The United States will not force the Republic of Korea to accept a peace not in the best interests of the Korean people. 2. If after the Geneva conference has gone on for 90 days and it is apparent no satisfactory peace can be made, the United States and , Republic of Korea will withdraw from the conference and" "consult further regarding the attainment of a free and independent Korea. ..." 3. Under an American-Korean mutual security pact, if Korea j should then be attacked, the United (States "will act to meet the common danger in accordance with its Constitutional processes." .. An Irma-brained starlet, hearing that Warner Bros, will produce "Lewis and Clark" hi Cinerama, said It:: "Gosh, it's like they said. Jerry Lewis is getting: a new partner." Mitzi Gaynor and her mother, who's guided the dancing star's career since she was a half-pint, are living under separate roofs and hardly talking. The reason: Mom's objections to the masterminding of Mitzi's career by Jack Bean, the boy friend, and to Jack's drastic move in asking Fox to release her from her contract.

JORDAN, M. D. A problem of significance to a good many married couples is presented in the following question: Q—I have been married nine years, and am 41. My husband is 45. Is it too late to consider the possibility of having a child? What are the risks? G ; S. A—It is not necessarily too late to have a child. With present obstetrical methods, and other aspects of medical care, the risks are not ordinarily excessive. Of course, the chances of conceiving are lessened as compared with more youthful couples. The first step is for you and your husband to be carefully examined to make sure that you are physically in good shape. The second is to discuss with your doctor all of the factors involved, so that you can be reasonably sure that if you do have a child you are not running any unnecessary risks, and that your chances of successful parenthood are good. iodine without checking with your doctor. Q—How does the digestive system react to the removal of the gall bladder? Must one avoid many foods? Reader. A—in many people the digestive system works quite well following the removal of the gall bladder. Generally speaking, some dietary restrictions are indicated, particularly at first, and with regard to fatty foods in the diet. Q—I had a goiter operation many years ago, after which I was given a prescription for thyroid tablets. I have taken these intermittently, but have recently purchased some iodine tablets, and would like to know if these serve the same purpose. Mrs. K. A—No, they do not. One gathers that it has been a loner time since you have been examined, or had a metabolism test, and you should not take either thyroid tablets or Q—Is there such a thing as a ruptured stomach? If so, what causes it? Mrs. C. A. S. A—Yes, there is. It is more likely to be caused by an ulcer which has eaten through the stomach wall, and which has caused what is commonly known as a perforation. Perforation of the stomach is one of the most serious complications of stomach ulcers. Q—I am 16 years old and much interested in sports. A year and a half ago I put the cartilage out of place in my left knee, and the knee still locks once in a while. Is there anything I can do to make it possible for me to tackle sports again? M. J. A—It is possible that an operation would be indicated in a case of this sort. Q—After a physical examination, I was told I had a small fistula. Sometimes this gives me an uncomfortable feeling. I wonder if it may become more serious? Mrs. J. A—A fistula, presumably around the outlet of the bowel, is quite common. It is a passageway lined with a tissue, which has to be completely eliminated before cure is attained. It will not heal itself, and it almost certainly will NOT lead to cancer. , Ultimately, you may,be faced with an operation, and you should be forewarned that sometimes the fistula is mere extensive than anticipated. • JACOBY ON BRIDGE By OSWALD JACOBY Written for NEA Service Stretching Hand, Was a Planned Play When Mrs. Marguerite Harris, well-known New York expert, opened the South hand with three no- trump, she knew that she was "stretching." Such a bid should show 25-27 points, and Mrs. Harris knew that her actual count was only 24 points. She felt justified in making this slight overbid because Doris Muir was elected president of the J. U. G. Club at a meeting Friday night at her home. Other officers chosen were: Jettye Clare luffman, vice president; Ann ;rook Secretary; Shirley Rogers, reasurer; Betty McMullin, reporter.

Then she took the ace and king of clubs, and East was squeezed because of his partner's thoughtless discard. If East discarded a heart, Mrs. Harris could overtake her queen of spades with dummy's king, repeat the heart finesse and win the last trick with the six of hearts. If East discarded two spades, the entire suit would drop when declarer overtook her queen with dummy's king. Dummy's six and five of spades would both be good tricks. If West had kept all of his spades, his seven of spades would be good enough to stop the suit. East would be able to discard spades safely, and the slam contract would have been defeated. what a pity Harry Truman didn't make the right choice when it was his turn.—Greenville (S. C.) Piedmont.
