Honor Our Living Shield, As Well as Honored Dead This is the first MeiriOri&l Say since 1950 when Americans soldiers Wfcrt not actively engaged in combat. But there are still thousands Of soldiers in Korea as in many other danger 4 points, Arid we must remember them. They are living, fiot dead. But because they are where they are* it is possible there may be fewer dead in the years to come. So every American soldiei* who stands a post of fleshes out a platoon anywhere overseas deserves to be Memorialized today. These inert are the physical reassurance, the visible embodiment of America's resolve to stand with all free nations against any threat to liberty. Their presence ori friendly foreign soil heartens the others who must join in any successful effort to ward off the common foe. And their •presence, side with other men in arms, is America's' own guard and comfdrt in a bitterly hostile world. In this modern military age, a country's defensive frontiers are not its own national boundaries. They have not been for a long time. All our military experts place America's protective frontiers in EuroDe. in Africa, and on the fringes of the Pacific- Asiatic rim. We must all hope that the old slogan, "Don't send our boys to dte on foreign shores/' will by now have lost all its force in domestic politics. For it has no link with the military realities. We pray that our young men shall not have to die in new wars, big wars or small. But for them to do the vital sentinel duty that mty prevent another carnage. They could not prevent it if they stood instead in California and Texas and Minnesota and Mane and New York and the Carolinas. Remember them in their outposts. The shield they give give us is the one shield we must have. dictate major decisions in the lift of tht member countries. Membership in international organizations which have so such power to enforce their decisions is not participation in world government. The United Nations is not a world government. Its decisions for action have only the force that the member nations give them. The UN cannot compel us to muster a single platoon of soldiers if we do not want to. Five major countries even have the power to veto decisions in the crucial UN Security Council. Neither the United States nor any other government of consequence on this earth has any noticeable desire to create a true world government. Nor is there any sizeable sentiment for such a course among: the respective populations. To be sure, there are advocates of world government here and elsewhere, but their influence is small and their 'power virtually nonexistent. If one imagined for a moment that the reverse was true in America and world government advocates were strong, then what about people in France and Britain and some of the others? All one has to do is read what they say about us to realize that they don't have any more wish to enter a binding organization with America than we do with them. Some who raise the alarm contend world government could be "slipped over on us" by persons in this country and Out who are plotting it. By whom and in what way? It was argued in debate on the Brieker amendment that 200 treaties were pefiding In the UN which could seriously affect America's internal life. Cen- ful searchers found 12—not 200—treaties "in Work," arid there isn't the slightest Chance" any could be "slipped over" on us,.even if we assumed any might be harmful The drily really powerful friends of world government are in the Kremlin. And it seems pretty clear we are all on guard against them. Until it is demonstrated that some body important besides Communist conquers want world government, we ought to worry about more tangible fears. Views of Others Fear of 'World Government 7 Is Just a Waste of Energy One of the great alarms raised in some quarters these days is that some form of world government may be foisted on us "when we are not looking," We Americans have many legitimate fears in this troubled age, but .this must be put down as just about the emptiest imaginable. There is about as much chance today for world government in this country or any other as there is that Adolph Hitler it alivt and leading a trifc* of African htad-hunttrt. By world government Is meant here i supra-national authority with power to The Typical Shareholders A survey made by one of the nation's largest businesses constitutes an answer to those who think most stockholders are wealthy or at least well-to-do. This company sent a questionnaire to its 280,066 shareholders, and the remarkably high number of 140,066 answered. The replies showed that 65 percent of them had annual incomes less than $5,066 each "Yet", the company's annual report pointed out, "this 56 per cent of the stockholders, whose average incofrie was a little less than $2,866, owned 37 percent of the shares." It is also noteworthy that the dividends paid to these stockholders represented nearly eight per cent of their total income, which was almost four times as great as the the proportion in the case of stockholders with incomes in excess of $5,606. It is the people of small and medium incomes who will gain the most from the proposal, made by President Eisenhower, that the existing double taxation of dividend iricornes be moderately reduced, in the tax message, the president also mafl« this noteworthy observation: "The average Investment needed to buy the tools and facilities to give one of our people a Job runs about $8.060 to $10,000. The more we can encourage savings And investment, the more prdsperous will be 160,000 American citizens."

Consecration Ptfer ft/son's Washington Column — Welcome on Washington Visit WASHINGTON — (NEA) — Su- Dfeme Court Chief Justice Earl Warren 'Was just about. the only ligh-rankiftg Republican in Washington who gave ex-President Har•y Truman everj a nod on his recent visit to Washington. Accompanied by a couple of his knockout daughters, the Chief Jus- ice showed up at a reception in lonor of Truman's 70th birthday. They got a warm welcome from ,he Truman farriily. There was a story and a reason Behind this act of courtesy. When /resident Truman' went to San Francisco for the sighing of the apanese peace treaty in 1951, Governor Warren, as executive lead of the host state, made the listdiriafy call to pay hife respects o the President of the United itates. The visit came just as 'resident Truman, his personal taff afid California Democratic Dolitical leaders were sitting down to lunch. That didn't faze Harry Truman in the least. He invited Governor Warrert in, introduced him all around, made a place for him at the table and insisted that he sit down and eat with them. "He didn't have to do that," the governor said in telling about it later. "He's a nice guy." This act of warm friendliness made an impression on Warren. His birthday call on the ex- President in Washington was simply his own gracious way of returning the courtesy. It just shows that politicians can be gentlemen at times—if they're gentlemen to begin with. Gal reporters in the Washington press corps got no answer when they asked, the other day, what the First Lady was wearing to the White House reception that evening. Social Secretary Mary Jane Mc- 1 Cafffee allowed that Mrs. Eisen- 1 hower hadn't made up her mind. The reporters understood perfectly how that was and didn't press the point. For an 8-p. m. state dinner or a 9 p, m. reception, Secretary McCaffree explained later to one fashion reflbrtei-, Mrs. Eisenhower might choose her dress in the morning, or maybe not till afternoon. In fact, like any woman in this country, she has be£n known to make up her mind in the morning—and change it in the afternoon. Washington Fairy Story — Once upon a time there were two people who had lunch together and durirjg the whole meal they never mentioned the Army - McCarthy hearings. Henry Wallace will love this. Remember how they beat the former Secretary of Agriculture and Vice President over the head when he dared to suggest that the xvorld would be a lot better place if every family could be sure of one quart of milk a day? This was labeled as Henry's crazy idea for giving away milk to the Hottentots. It became a symbol of the New Deal giveaway and a political campaign issue. Well, Republican Secretary of Agriculture Ezra Taft Benson has now announced that studies are being made on the feasibility of establishing milk reconstitution plants in Asia. The idea is to build up a market for surplus U. S. nonfat milk solids and other dairy products. Each of the plants would cost from $200,000 to $500,000 and would provide a market for Up to a million pounds of dry milk solids a year. Mixed with water, they would make 40,000 to 80;000 quarts of milk a day. The milk could even be made into ice cream. So Walla *-'s proposal has now been topped. The GOP version is not milk for the Hottentots but "Ice Cream for the Asiatics." Helping to dedicate a new portion of the frieze of historical scenes in the rotunda of the capitol, Vice President Richard M. Nixon said he felt that "Most of the members of the House and Senate are so busy with their official duties that we do not know as much about the capitol building as we should." The Vice President then confessed that, "Some day I should like to take time to join a guided tour ,of visitors and really find out something about this capitol." Speaker of the House Joe Martin topped this one with a story about a senator whom he did not name but whose wealth, he said, "could be counted in millions. "He acted as a guide one day for a wandering lady tourist," Speaker Martin* related, "and he explained the capitol so well that the lady visitor rewarded him with a 25-cent tip." He thanked her profusely, according, to the Speaker, then pocketed the quarter to save the lady embarrassment. He never told her that her guide was either a senator or a millionaire.

Written for NEA Service Everyone is agreed that medicine has made great strides and can do more for people than ever before. However, there are a good many things which are still not possible Q—I recently had some X-rays taken which revealed a stone about the size of a bird's egg in my urinary bladder. Can this be dissolved by medication or removed any way except by operation? G.D. A—There is no livelihood that this can be dissolved by any medicine which can be given you. It can be removed by operation and in some caaes it can be crushed where it lies in the urinary bladder and removed in small bits without cutting. Q—Could you tell me if there is any proven medicine which helps in causing pregnancy? Mrs. J. . A—There is not. be closely watched. Q—Would you please discuss a hypochondriac? Reader, j A—A hypochondriac is a person • suifering from hypochondriasis, an abnormal anxiety about one's j health. It is a state of mind to be avoided. I could reasonably expect. He t u Tefore accepted the slam invitation. ..ost opened the king of clubs, and I won with the singleton ace. What was the correct play of this trump combination? Should I take the ace of trumps and lead another trump to the dummy? Should I begin by leading a low trump towards dummy's queen? Should I get to dummy with a IMOGENE COCA has a date in Dallas, Tex.. Aug. 23 to star in "Wonderful Town" at the state king, cashed the jack of diamonds to discard my losing spade, and then led dummy's queen of hearts. East played low with a quiver, but I nevertheless finessed. The finesse held and therefore rriy slam contract was assured. The reason for this line of play is that West can hardly afford to play a low trump at the first trick if he has only K-x. When East wins the first trick with the jack •and then follows suit with a low trump, it is safe to assume that East also has the king of trumps. This plan of play succeeds if West has any singleton or doubleton and also if West has any triple- ton except K-x-x. Other plans depend on good guesswork as well as on good play. In adopting my recommended line of play, however. South should lead the lowest possible card for the finesse (the eight rather than the ten). This tends to conceal fro mWest that South may have a finesse in mind. If West suspected a finesse, he might play low with K-x. Olivia de Havilland's long-promised, movie return will be in "That Lady," about to be filmed in Spain.

Can you discuss this? E. B. A—In many people the eyes will water for a variety of reasons:: Emotions ,like sadness or joy. may cause crying; changes of temperature, bright sunlight, irritating dust or other substances in the air also often lead to excessive watering of the eyes. Perhaps in your area there is something in th.e atmosphere from smoke or fumes which cause an unusually large proportion of people to hive watering of the eyes. Q—I have an umbilical hernia and I am also pregnant. Will this harm the baby in any way? Mrs. J. K. A—The baby will not be harmed, to* the hernia to MM mother ihould Q—Can you tell me what is the cause, of lack of pigment in my arms, hands, legs, .feet and under my eyes? Is there anything I can do about it? S. R. A—This is probably the condition known as leukoderrna or viti- ligo. Its cause is not known, but i nsorne there may be an inherited predisposition. Occasionally loss of skin pigment results from some special circumstance of exposure to chemical substances so that a diagnosis is probably desirable. Medical treatments have not been particularly succesful. • JACOBY ON BRIDGE Written for NEA Service By OSWALD JACOBY Tourney /$ Place To Find Challenge , The tournament now being held in New York City reminds me of a. hand that I played in a New York tournament Just about a year ago.
