Easy to Tell An American By Way He Treats You The fellow we're thinking about has a gas station just down the street a few blocks. He's worth taking a close look at, so lot's move in. You don't have to watch this fellow very long before you realize there's something special about him. Soon enough it hits you: he's a throwback to an earlier day, an earlier America. Why? Because he has old-fashioned pride in doing a good job, in giving his customers superb service, in putting out a full day's work and more. He belongs to the era when skill in a craft was important, when most men found joy in personal mastery of their tasks, Though it's harsh to hear, it's true — nowadays too many of us play little games called Getting Through the Day or Just Getting By. The old pride of achievement is hard to find. A common slogan seems to be More Money for Less Work. But there's more to this gas station fellow than we've told. He doesn't do any of these things in a showy way. His place isn't plastered with boastful placards dwelling on the high-quality service. The man himself simply trots about, quiet but friendly and smiling, doing a dozen extra little chores for you without comment. Sometimes you don't discover till you're back in your garage that he's tightened this or that, or removed that old stain from your fender. By talking around with others, you may learn that this busy boy got a Silver Star from the Army in World War II for jumping onto a flaming truck and tossing off some precious material. But you'll never get the story rom him. After a while you sense that all these traits are woven into a tight fabric of character. You realize that here, above all, is a man to be trusted, to count upon. He doesn't cheat you, he doesn't overcharge you, he doesn't try to sell you •something you don't need, he doesn't press for that dollar. He won't let you pay until a job's all finished. And when he tells you that you do need something done to your car, you can believe him. He's got a family, he's got a car, and they're just about to move into a new house. In his political thinking, he seems to shade toward the conservative side. Pretty average in all these respects. But there's nothing average about him as a tola Ihuman being. We got a lot of high-flown talk from public figures who have appointed themselves supreme judges of what makei * real American. Mostly they're looking 1" th» mirror. Forgot them. Look for this gas static nfellow. It's easy to recognize him from the way he treats you. When you find him, you'll be right up against a good American for sure. Views of Others Lincoln's Picture Safe In The South The Chicago and Florida resident who has sounded the warning that the picture of Abraham Lincoln on Illinois auto licenses plates will cause trouble for Illinois autolsts who travel in the South has done the South a grave injustice. This greatly mistaken gentleman, Mr. Andrew Bogstad, a retired credit manager, is a Chicagoan who spends his winters in Florida. On the basis of his presumed knowledge of the South, he wrote a letter to a Chicago newspaper in which he said, "I honestly believe that any car from Illinois bearing such a license plate will either be wrecked or badly damaged." Gov. William G. Stratton of Illinois has recently signed a bill enacted by the legislature of his state authorizing the imprinting of a sil- houtte of Lincoln's head and the words "Land of Lincoln" on Illinois license plates. The South has long recognized Abraham Lincoln as one of the great Americans. His memory may not be as greatly revered In the South, which has its own heroes to honor, as It is In the North, but it is honored by Southerners. As a matter of fact, at the time of Lincoln's death from the bullet fired by John Wilkes Booth it was generally said throughout the South at that time the South had lost its best friend In the North. The South had fought valiantly against Lincoln's armies, but the South recognized Lincoln's sincerity — and his goodness of heart. The South knew all through the persecution which it suffered in the so-called Reconstruction that had Lincoln lived he would fiave opposed such tyranny. Mr. Bogstad thinks a license plate "or anything else bearing his name" would be an Insult to the South. For generations, however, pictures of Lincoln and praise of his character, his humanltar- ianism and his moral fortitude have appeared in Southern schoolbooks, and the South has not been "insulted." Even granting that some Southerners have hated Lincoln, since war always generates hate, Mr. Bogstad's statement that In the South Lincoln is the "most hated man that ever lived" shows that he is poorly qualified to give advice or warning on this subject. Has Mr. Bogstad ever heard of Sherman? or of Ben Butler, who was known in the South as "the beast?" The News-Free Press thinks It quite appropriate for the state of Illinois to honor Lincoln and Illinois by putting Lincoln's sllhoutte on Its license plates. We do not think Illinois citizens will have any trouble over auch license plates In this part of the South — or in any other. — Chattanooga News-Free Press Alger Hiss' $400 Friend William P. Bundy is a man about whom grave questions have been asked and satisfactory answers have not- been, given. Bundy, a son-in-law of former Secretary of Slate Dcnn Acheson, has been listed as contributor of $400 to the defense fund of Traitor Alger Hiss. As n citizen Bundy has the right to make such a contribution. But that contribution has become a matter of public concern because Bundy currently is employed as a top man in the vital, top-secret Central Intelligence Agency. Do the American people want a man who haa aided Hiss in such a key spot? Sen. Joe McCarthy has properly asked that question. But the sacrosanct CIO has thus far stymied Investigation of Bundy. And now comes word that Bundy, still suspected, still with the CIA. Is to be permitted to go out of the country on vacation, still unln- vestlgated. In giving Bundy overseas travel permission under current circumstances, the new State Department Is reminiscent of the old Achesonlan State Department which the American people had hoped to be rid of as a result of the last election. — Chattanooga News-Free Press.

Peter ft/son's Washington Column — New Security Regulations Give Dulles' Aide Greater Powers Peter Edson WASHINGTON —(NBA)— After nearly four months of preparation, the Department of State's new regulations on security for Its em- ployes have finally been issued, giving unprecedented powers to R. W. Scott McLeod, the Department's new administrator of the Bureau of Security, Consuur Affairs and Personnel— BSCAP. With two exceptions, every em- ploye of the Department must lereafter be subjected to a full :ield investigation by the FBI or .ho Civil Service Commission. The exceptions are, first, lor per diem or temporary employes or aliens employed outside the United States as exempted by Civil Service regulations; second, emergency appointments for 90-day pe- •lods if the Secretary of State himself finds this exemption necessary in the national interest. The security standards for State Department employes are those set :orlh by President Eisenhower in ills Executive Order No. 10450, issued Anril 27, 1(153. But the State Department's new security regulations specify that employment shall not be limited by the mere catalogue of crimes listed in the President's order. Lourle Has Security Flrinp An act of Congress dated Aug. 26. 1950, gave the Secretaryo! State absolute power to suspend or to discharge any employe whenever necessary In the Interest of U. S. national security. The secretary may delegate this power to a subordinate, and it has been given to underscrtary for Administration Donold B. Lourle. What happens when derogatory Information Is received about any State Department employe comprises the new loyalty and security procedure under President Eisenhower's order 10450. This is the heart o Ithe new Manual of Regulations: A first review of Investigative reports is made by the Bureau of Security, under Mr. McLeod. It evidence is considered insufficient, further Investigation may be called for. or the employe may be interviewed. If reports Indicate that the em- ploye should be suspended or fired, the employe's investigative record and security file are sent to Administrator McLeod with a report. He is required to make an immediate evaluation report. He may then recommend to Undersecretary Lourie whether the employe be suspended or not. A suspended employe must be furnished with a written statement ot charges within 30 days. The em- ploye has 30 days in which to make a reply and submit affidavits. The record is then reviewed again for three determinations: Restore the employe to his old position. Recommend that he be given some other position. Recommend the employe be fired. The employe must be given a written statement of the Secretary of State's decision. A discharged employe may then ask for a Security Board hearing. Every department of government names officers for the Civil Service security hearing board roster. Administrator McLeod may pick any three names from this roster for a State Department hearing board, but no State Department employe may hear, the case of a suspended State Department em- ploye. Administrator McLeod's office is responsible for preparing the charges against an employe. The Secretary of State is represented by a "security counsel." The suspended employe may be present, may be represented by counsel, may present witnesses of his own and have the right t to cross-examine witnesses In support of the charges. The hearings will be private, restricted to the employe, counsel, State Department officials concerned, a stenographer and witnesses only when they are giving testimony. Employes and their counsel may be given a transcript of the hearing record. The decision of the hearing board must be in writing and signed by all three members. The employe must be informed in writing of the board's decision. The Secretary of State or his designee must then review the record of the case and make his determination on whether the em- ploye should be discharged or reinstated. The employe must be given a copy of the secretary's fmding. And that will be that, for there is no further appeal provided in the new regulations.

U-I film editors have done a ma- or pruning Job on "Brady's Bunch," to eliminate scenes in which Suzan Ball limps too noticeably. The beauty's knee tumored during making of the film and now surgeons fear her leg may have the Doctor Says- By EDWTN P. JORDAN. M.D. Written for NBA Service Asthma Is both a common and miserable affliction. Someone troubled With asthma will cough, have wheezes in the chest, and probably suffer shortness of breath. It Is not too difficult for the physician to diagnose asthma by listening- to the chest through a steth- escope, and by studying X-ray films. These methods not only aid In making the diagnosis, but also jive invaluable information on how serious the condition is and what treatment would be best. The seat of the trouble Is principally in the bronchi, small tubes leading from the main breathing lube, or trachea, into the lung tissue Itself. The walls of these bronchi become thickened, narrowed and filled with mucus. Sometimes the bronchia tubes Iso undergo contractions or Misms which still further narrow the space through which the nir :an pass. This narrowing explains \K shortness of breath—it is stm- th ply that not enough air gets through , the lungs. The coughing asso- lated with asthma is nature's way of trying to enlarge the openings Asthma is usually due to allergy, that is, to sensitiveness of the patient to some substance outside his body. Such substances may be inhaled proteins like horse (hinder or something eaten. When the oi- fending substance can be identified id eliminated from the vicinity of the asthma victim, the results may be highly satisfactory. Even when that cannot be done, treatment which Is not aimed at the allergic cause is sometimes quite successful. . Treatment Slay Help Treatment of a sinus Infection, for example, often helps. Other treatments which have been used include the direct application ot an iodized oil. the use of X-rays and breathing gaseous mixtures contain Ing oxygon and helium. Lately cor- U«uui Mid ACI'H h»v« been found most useful in some cases. Change of location or climate brings varying results—some are helped, others are not. A person with asthma who is forced to consider such a change, however, ought to give the new location a good, long trial period before deciding on permanent residence. •JACOBY ON BRIDGE Smart Player Will Win Most Hands By OSWALD JACOBY Written for NBA Service Many bridge players act as though declarers and defenders were two separate breeds of cat. They know all the normal declarer's plays, but they never think of making those same plays when they are defending. This curious mental attitude plagued West in today's hand. West opened the three of spades, East put up the Jack, and South won with the queen. South counted his tricks: two spades, four hearts, one diamond, and one club. Clubs seemed to be the suit most likely to furnish the ninth trick, so South led the nine of clubs and let it ride for a finesse. i East won with the queen of clubs and naturally returned the eight of spades. South, holding the'king and ten of spades, played the kinc; —and West couldn't resist the temptation of capturing a king with an ace. Once West had used up his ace of spades on the second round of that suit the defense was doomed to failure. The spades could never be brought in, since West had no side enlry. West made his best shift — to UM i«a of diamonds. souUi puytd low from the dummy and won In his own hand with the ace. Another club finesse lost to East's king but East couldn't defeat the con tract. The defenders could take, ai most, two clubs, one spade, anc one diamond. Now let's go back to West's play on the second round of spades. I West had been playing the hand NORTH VA94 U 4 A 10 8 5 WEST EAST AA6532 *J84 V1052 » 1097 + 62 763 South 1N.T. Pass *KQ74 SOUTH (D) *KQ10 VKQJ8 » A83 #J93 East-West val. W«t Ncrth Pass 3 N.T.

He would natur ally and automatically let the firs two spade tricks go, saving his ace for the third round of the suit, He should have done exactly the same thing as a defender. See what happens if West refuses the second round of spades, soutl must try another club finesse, and East wins with the king of clubs East then leads his last spade, and West takes the ace of spades. Wes 1 Is now in position to take his las two spades, and the defenders se the contract with three spadi tricks »nd two clubs.
