Meditations For In many thlnrs we offend mil. H »"T man •ffend not in word, the same Is a perfect man, and able mlso to bridle the whole body. - J>me« 8:2. * » * The superior man is he who develops in harmonious proportions his moral, Intellectual and physical nature. This should be the end at which men of all classes should aim, and it Is thU only which constitutes real greatness. — Jerrold. Barbs Some men Work hard and save their money to their sons won't have the problems that made men of their fathers. * • * Every picture tells a story - except m lot of ttios« we've seen on TV. * * * A lot of folk sing With feeling, but not for other people. * • * Ifnorance has Its value — providing about half of the world's conversation output. * * * A golf rule says a player cannot change hii lie. When you once tell your score, men, stick to It. Reds' H-Device Should Jolt Feeling of Complacency Now the boast is no longer empty. The Russians have the hydrogen bomb, or a rough equivalent. And once again the United States and its friends must re-examine their strategic position in the world. We have lost exclusive possession of a devastating device, as we did of the A-bomb before it. But it was a loss we had expected, sooner or later. For a long time we have not built our military strategy on the idea we would have an H- bomb or an A-bomb monopoly. We have instead determined to put our reliance upon the size and effectiveness of our increasing A-bomb arsenal, and upon our two-year head start toward a similar advantage with the H-bomb. In other words, our motto is "more and better." In the A-bomb category, where work is naturally further advanced, the United States has added greatly to its total stock. It has developed an atomic explosive considerably more powerful than those dropped on Japan. Moreover, it has devised a variety of smaller A- bombs for tactical use, as for instance the atomic artillery shell. From the testimony of our experts, who are able to make shrewd professional guesses as to Russia's countering atomic stockpile, we are evidently far in the lead on both quality and quantity. We have the assurance of Chairman Lewis L. Strauss of the Atomic Energy Commission that our H-bomb effort actually reached the testing stage in W51, a whole year before experiments had been reported previously. These appraisals of our strength in a field that is crucial to our entire strategy are comforting. Yet it is obvious to all of us that we cannot therefore slide into complacency. Neither our great, complex industrial nor our celebrated technical talents are automatic guarantees of continued superiority. We have greater resources, plant capacity, and ordinary mass production know-how than the Russians. But they exact more military production from i their smaller base, grinding the faces of the civilian population in a way w« could not tolerate. On the technical side, we d»re not smugly assume that all genius rests with us. The A-bomb was not strictly an American product, and we didn't invent jet engines, guided missiles and radar. We .need the cross-fertilization of the brains of men from many landi, or our •dv*ntag« may diminish. Furthermore, "effectiveness" in this field means more than efficiency as an explosiv*. It involves our ability to deliver the weapons to desired targets. That translates into planes — and bases. In the judgment of our top military men, any policy that does not include adequate numbers of bombers based within range of the prospective enemy is not a safe policy. Russia has not surprised us with its mastery of the hydrogen device. But it has reminded us that there can be no relaxing for us, either in stiffening our home defenses or developming our power to snap back and pulverize the enemy's cities. Views of Others U.S. Limits Bargaining Latitude Negotiation, It goes without saying, means give and take. The way things are shaping up for the big fall conference on Korean peace and other Asian matters, it's not clear Just how much "give" will be possible for the American conferees. Through public statements and private promises, Secretary of State Dulles and other United States leaders have left this country very little room for maneuver at the bargaining table. The commitments have been flying so thick and fast it seems almost like * political campaign year. The prime, declared goal of the conference Is the political unification of Korea. Yet It Is totally unrealistic to imagine the Communists will agree to unification under the government of South Korean President Syngman Ehee. And Ehee Is expecting exactly that. We have told him we would walk out of the conference If its deliberations clearly have become futile. Certainly we shall have to mak« It clear to Bhee quickly that we will not necessarily view unity talk as futile simply because It leaves him out of the picture. Also, we have promised Ehee to build up his defenses with American soldiers. At the same time, we seem committed to his view that every last Chinese soldier should leave Korean soil. How can we figure the Beds will see any reasonableness in that arrangement? Dulles has put us on record as against conceding the admission of Bed China to the UN as part of a general settlement. There are very good reasons for holding this attitude, since the Chinese still are helping Communist rebels fight a war In Indo-Chlna and may have new aggressive designs on Formosa. We have a right to see evidence of peaceful Intentions before adopting a more generous position. * But to state our stand so openly and flatly far In advance of a political conference is to limit our bargaining power. — Portsmouth Star. Applied Religion If we could translate the faith and the teachings of our various religions into our everyday living many of our problems might disappear and those that remain would be easier to solve. Faith in Ood is a recognition that all men are the creatures of God, made In His likeness and imbued with the dignity He imparts. Religion is an attempt to live up to that dignity. Real religion is a living thing which must rpt be restricted to the times when we assemble with others who hold the same beliefs as we do. The deepest, truest meaning of religion can be demonstrated In our everyday behaviour, in the way we live and work and play. Such application of religion can bring the greatest sense of satisfaction and fulfillment. It can make of every act of our lives a sincere and effective prayer. — Greenwood (Miss.) Commonwealth. New Symbol The new symbol of United States' aid will b« a pair of muscular clasped hands on a red, white and blue, Stars and Stripes shield. Maybe it is progress. We live undoubtedly in a muscular age. It is to be hoped, however, that new symbols do not mean the rejection of old ones. In this time, particularly, not even hard elapsed hands take the place of the uplifted hand of Liberty with a torch in It enlightening the world. — Raleigh (N.C.) News and Observer. SO THEY SAY I place my faith on the 80-odd million women who weren't contacted. — Actress Ann Baxter on Klnsey report. * * * I don't know, I might be enthusiastic. I can't tell at this time. — Adlal Stevenson on running again in 1958. « • » I am lor a strong national defense In your interest as well as my own. — Ex-President Harry Truman. » * » There is nothing very pleasant about the Idea that Russia has the making ol the H-bomb. — Sen. Richard Russell (D., Ga.) * * * fer the consequence. I marie my bed and I'll sleep fftr he consequence. I made my bed and I'll sleep in it. — Pic.

The Yan- arf the boys who s^nrrnlly make them . . . then break 'em. — Joe McCarthy, ex-Yankee mnn- If Toxes Are Ever Going to Be Reduced- Peter Edson's Washington Column — Releasing of Some Information On Atom Bombs Is Under Study WASHINGTON —(NEA)~ Pres- dent Elsenhower's statement that ,he ptomlc energy law should be Drought up to date so as to give the American people more information on this subject has tapped a keg of eels. There is thought here of giving the Russians or anybody else the Ameri can. know-how on making A-bombs. Peter Edson But half a dozen other things are involved and it is mportant to keep them straight n any move towards declassifica- ion of atomic secrets. The term, "restricted data" under the present law includes "the manufacture or utilization of atom- c weapons, the production of fis- lonablc material, or the use of Issionable material in the produc- lon of power. . ." When this law was adopted In 046 it was assumed that the Unit- id States would maintain its mo- lopoly of production. But noW Rus- la has made at least three atomic xplosions. It's assumed that some rf the original American secrets ars now known to the Russians. 'he question now is: Is there any eed to keep secret from the Amer- can people what the Russians al- eady know about the production fissionable materials? New Power In Bombs The Increased power of the new- j ype bombs and the hydrogen bomb ow under development may neces- itate giving the American people | ore information on the destruc- I live fo In 1950 the Atomic Energy Commission published a "Weapons Effect Handbook." It was intended for use of military and civilian engineers and medical authorities in planning defenses against atomic attack. The bombs of that time had a force of 20.000 tons of TNT. Bombs tested in Nevada earlier this year had the force of at least 50,000 tons of TNT. So the Weapons Effect Handbook of 1950 is presumably obsolete. The question now is: Should new data be released to reveal the super-bomb force, so that more adequate defenses may be planned? Along this same line, should more information be given on Russian' atomic bomb capabilities, so ;hat the American people will know what to expect in case of a surprise atomic attack? This particular point has nothing to do with changing the U. S. atomic energy law. It will be a determination for the President and l(he National Security Council to make on revealing U- S. Intelligence reports. President Eisenhower's committee on psychological warfare leaded by William H. Jackson, has iust recommended that this be done. Should Reveal A-Strength? There has been some epxression of opinion that the U. S. should •eveal its own atomic strength. The idea behind this is that such disclosure might deter an enemy from ,rying to make any atomic attack on the free world countries. This is not taken to mean that the U. S. should disclose the size of its atomic bomb stockpile, nor bomb • production rate. Gordon Dean, former chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission, says that the ."order of magnitude" of U. S. atomic power might be dis closed without mentioning any num bers of bombs. This could be don< by citing the number of cities tha could be destroyed in one attack In planning for any internationa defenses against sudden atomic at tack, the question of furnishing our allies with information about atom' ic weapons Is most important. In 1951 Congress amended the atomic energy act to authorize 8pe cific agreements to exchange in formation on the production of fis sionable materials with allied for eign powers. Giving restricted data on the design and manufacture o. atomic weapons was, however banned. The amendment said further tha no information could b given a foreign . government . unless the President had received a written recommendation from the National Security Council. Even then the information can be given by the Atomic Energy Commission only after 30 days' notice has been given to the Congressional Joint Atomic Energy Committee while Congress is in session. From the point oi view of planning an adequate European defense, this is considered ay some military authorities as too umbersome a restriction. There is, finally, the question of making more data available to private industry for the production of atomic power. This is considered s real necessity if there is to be :he fullest possible development of this new source of energy for aeacetime uses. Congress now has his question, but may not act this year. tlx Doctor Says— Writtei for NEA Serrlc* By EDWIN P. JORDAN, M.D. It seems that we are really getting somewhere with what to do for our handicapped and disabled neighbors. Instead ol sitting back and taking the position that nothing can be done for Ihose who are handicapped by disease or injury, many organizations and individuals have rolled up their sleeves and gone to work to Improve the situation. . No one — or at least very few — likes to sit back and feel that he is unable to contribute to his own support or that of his iamily, or to engage in any useful occupation. Almost all In this category are pretty unhappy. It Is s costly matter, too, to maintain the disabled in Idleness even with the often pitifully small support which society gives them. In one recent study more than 8000 persons who had been unable to work were "rehabilitated" and placed In useful employment. These 8,000 had been receiving public assistance at the rate of nearly $6,000,000 per year, but It cost only $4,'oOO,000 to prepare them for work. And during the first year after they were gainfully employed, these men and women earned an estimated $11000,000. Not K «ll ol those who are handicapped or disabled can. ol course, be prepared lor any kind of occupation, but an enormous number can be If properly prepared physically, psychologically, nnd given vocational training. Once this tins been done, Ihe cooperation ol Industry, and in fact of all of us. in finding n place for those who are handicapped in Jobs which they can do, nnri for which they arc trained, Is essential. While the rood Is still long ahead, much progress In fitting llandirnpppd pVrsonj Inlo appropriate Jobs has you Can Help One of the problems which remains is the shortage of trained services. Young men or women Interested in helping their fellows personnel to aid in rehabilitation could well consider the job possibilities for themselves of physical therapy, speech and hearing training, vocational counseling, social work, all of which, and others, enter into the service which can be rendered to the handicapped. An excellent, more extensive discussion oi this subject, on which many of these remarks have been based, Is the pamphlet by Miss Switzer and Dr. Busk entitled "Doing Something for the Disabled," which Is available through the nonprofit Public Affairs Committee, Inc., 22 East 38th Street, New York 16, N. Y., for 25 cents. HOME is a place where you can disagree with the boss and still keep working for her. — Ellavllle (Ga.) Sun.

Hedy Lamar's pals In Hollywood ::ay that she wants to direct pictures and her move to Europe is designed to get her into the Screen Directors Guild. Is there anyone, outside of Lassie and Bonzo, who doesn't want to direct? The Eleanor Parker-Bert Friedlob chill is thawing, but not enough for a reconciliation. She permits her producer-husband to visit the kiddies and is cordial about everything. Mary Pickford and her nephew, Sonny Chaliff, aren't talking. Frances Robinson, Sonny's wife, is in Hollywood to star in a series of Screen Gems and Fireside Theater stanzas. Chinese Beauty Jadin Wong, the Chinese beauty n the King Brothers' RKO film, "The.,Carnival Story." is Anna May Wong's cousin. She's wowing them in a London nitery, just as Anna May did a couple of decades ago. Maureen O'Hara wants her hairdresser, costume designer and makeup Qlan to go to Africa with her for "Tangiers."

The appearance of the king of diamonds at the second trick Induced declarer to change his mind. He had intended to settle for 10 tricks, but now he saw no reason to give up a "sure" 12 tricks. South cashed the ace of hearts, ruffed a low heart with dummy's ace of spades, and then drew four rounds of trumps, discarding two low clubs from the dummy. South then led a low diamond from his hand and finessed dummy's nine. That was the end.
