Public Health Service's handling of the antipolio vaccine has been wise. Dr. Leonard A. Scheele, surgeon general, may have solid reasons for his on-again-off -again decisions to release the •vaccine and then to witnanoia it ior new saieiy uicu&a. i«Var>= Via will avnlain rlio actions later. ■R„t Q= nf rViia mnmmt — to ». lawman — it seems much of the confusion about the vaccine could have been avoided if Scheele and his associates had been more irann witn me public. " And by associates here is meant not only Scheele's health service but the Department of Health, Education and Welfare headed by Mrs. Uveta uuip noDoy. ine neaun service is a part of her department. If the so far unexplained actions of the health service were intended to keep from alarming parents, they must have had the opposite effect in many cases. After hearing the government say first the vaccine was safe, then that it shouldn't be distributed, then that it should, then that it shouldn't, many parents no doubt have been torn beween: (1) a hope they might protect their child from polio by vaccination and (2) fear their child might be endangered if vaccinated. Publicity about the vaccine has gone from one extreme to the other. This vaccine got the most tremendous publicity build-ud in the historv of medicine when everything looked good. „That was last April 12 when the announcement was made • the vaccine had Deen rouna ou to ou per cent enective * against one type of polio and 80 to 90 per cent against the ■ other two. That announcement was made at Ann Arbor, Mich., || about last summer's tests under the sponsorship of the Na-m tional Foundation for Infantile Paralysis. ;j But when news about the vaccine took a gloomy turn — ■ after some vaccinated children came down with polio — the ,; government itself became increasingly vague although re •* iterating confidence in the vaccine. L First Scheele ordered all vaccine from the Cutter Labor-•'.atories withdrawn. About three-fourths of the children "i stricken after getting injections had been given Cutter ;; vaccine. Next Scheele called for a stop to use of any vaccine i! while his experts checked the five other laboratories making « tne isaiK vaccine. I! Then he eave new clearance to vaccine from two labora- - tones while continuing to hold up that from any others.

Av\rTevW < Presbyterians Criticize Trend to 'Exalt' Virgin LOS ANGELES UP)— Presbyterians vote today on proposals to or-dam women as ministers and to criticize what the church terms a progressive trend by Roman Catholics to exalt the Virgin Mother. The two issues come before the 167th Geneial Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in the United States of America as it resumes business sessions continuing through Wednesday. The lengthy statement on "the Marian cult in relation to the lordship of Christ and the unity of the church" was offered by the Pies-byterians' Permanent Commission on Interchurch Relations. The commission asked the as-semblj-'s 830 lay and clerical delegates representing 2 65S.P03 church membeis to approve the state- -\«kPd Study After noting that last year's assembly asked the commi=sion "to study the significance of the Marian Year in 1 elation to Christ's place m the Christian religion and to the unitv of the church which we founded." the commission reported m part "The festivals in honor of the Virgin Mary which marked the Ma nan vear of 1954 set in bold relief the statu* now accorded to the mothpr of Our Lord in Roman communion "In the celebiahons of that jear the progressive trend to exalt the fieure of the Virgin Mother to the office of associate partner in the work of redemption reached its culminating point.

Only 3 per cent think the U. S. should pull out. The other 15 per cent haven't made up their minds Only 7 per cent of the Amencan people have never heard of the United Nations. Of the other 93 per cent SO per cent can name one or more of its purposes. The major image of the United Nations in the minds of the Amei> can people is that it is an organization intended to keep the peace. In the way of improving the U. N., 85 per cent of the American people think the veto should not be used to keep nonmember countriei from joining. 54 per cent think the U. S should be given control over atomic energy, 49 per cent wink the U. N. should be gnen mora power to control the armed forces of all nations, only 17 per cent fa\or a stronger world government organization, and only T per cent favor the admission of Communist China. THESE ARE THE HIGHLIGHTS of a new compilation of over 100 polls that have been taken on U. N. issues during the last 18 yeari by seven public opinion research organizations. The studies were made by Stephen B. Withey and William A. Scott of the University of Michigan Survey Research Center. As a result of those studies, it is possible to make a fever chart on how American approval and disapproval of the U. N. have fluctuated since its creation in 1945. Whether the curve went up or down has depended a great deal on world events. The U N. started off in 1946 with about 40 per cent of the American people supporting it. This dropped to 25 per cent by the end of the jear when Soviet Russia began to throw its vetoes around and it looked as if the U. N. would be a big flop. AMERICAN APPROVAL ROSE giadually to 50 per cent by 1948. Right after war broke out in Koiea in mid-1950 and the U. N. stepped into the picture to check Communist aggression, support rose to 65 U. N. support dropped to 30 per cent when Communist Chma came mto the war and it became a stalemate. Since the signing of the Korean cease-fire agreement, American support for the U. N has risen back up to the 60 per cent level. It has fluctuated a few above and below that figure over the past j*ear. Over this same ten-\ear period, disapproval of the U. N. as expressed in American public opinion polls has declined from its highs of 55 per cent after the Berlin blockade by Russia and after Red China entered the Korean war. to 20 per cent today. In general, Professors Withey, Scott and their associates conclude from their poll of polls that with minor changes, the number of Amencans who have favored getting out of the U. N. and the number who favor stajmg have remained about the same over the ten-year penod. COLLEGE GRADUATES AND PEOPLE of high Income are found to be more dissatisfied with U. N. performance. These are the people who know more about world affairs, think about them more and have higher ideals on what U. N. should be. Americans who are dissatisfied with the U. N. record to date are reported as two-thirds in favor of strengthening the U. N. to one-third in favor of U. S. withdrawal. The long-term growth of American opinion in favor of some form of world organization is noted. In 193". some 23 per cent of the people thought the U. S. should join the League of Nations. During World War II 70 per cent thought there should be some form of world organization. During the San Francisco U. N. charter conference it was 80 In the past year, polls have indicated that 70 per cent of the Amencan people think the U. S. should stay irr the U. N even if Red China is admitted to membership by majonty vote Sixty per cent favor stajmg in even if Russia continues her obstructiveness Forty-seven per cent favor stajmg in even if the U. N. is a failure.
