Aid for Viet Nam Now that France has reluctantly promised to support Premier Diem of South Viet Nam in Indochina, the outlook is slightly brighter for that beleaguered land standing in the eViaHnw nf Asiatic communism. The United States and France will join in trying to build a stable government base there, in anticipation of the mid- lyob elections wmcn win seme tne country s mume. Gloomy forecasts at the time of the Geneva truce on Tnriorhina last vear were that the Red Vietminh, handed control of North Viet Nam at that time, almost certainly would establish sway over the free southern land within a year or two . American and other Western diplomats understand that onlv the hardest kind of labor in this area will prevent such an outcome. There is need for order, for a more democrati cally founded government, for a stronger, more 'efficient army, tor a neaitmer economy. Even under the most ideal conditions, to make any real dent in these problems m the time allotted betore the crucial election is a tough assignment. And as the recent civil coniuct between Diem, ana tne reoei private armies empna-sized, conditions have been far from ideal. Neither we nor the French dare, however, to take a de featist attitude. The moment Indochina passes behind the Bamboo Curtain, doughty little Thailand becomes the front line of freedom in Asia. And for all its spunk, this tiny country could not be expected to offer stern resistance to the southward sweep of the Communists. Tne administration must remain continuously alive to the urgency of the situation, and press positive plans for the strengthening of South Viet Nam. Congress, in voting foreign aid tor tne coming year, must mcewise snow acute awareness of the danger. The country is not lost until the Reds fasten their grip upon it, and this they have not yet done. There is still hope, however slender. It does not rest whollv on America. But without America's most enlightened and ambitious effort, mat nope may quiciciy cue. Canadian Industry Booms Everybody knows America's industrial might has been vastly multiplied in the last few decades, especially in the period during' and since World War II. We mieht be sur prised to learn that, percentagewise, Canada has done even better. We have always had the friendliest of relations with Canada. Our mutual trade is heavy. v^e travel freely there and they repay the compliment. But because the country's population is only one-eieventn of ours, we otten tend to undervalue Canadian achievements. Somt time back, we did become aware that the Canadian dollar was prized a bit more than its American counterpart. Now we find that, advanced though we are over our pre war economic state, tne uanaaians nave progressed even more, in tne years rrom j.yzt> to J.yo4. we Doosted our gross national product (sum of all ourput) by 100 oer cent. In the same span of years the Canadians increased theirs by 120 per cent. Congratulations to our northern neighbors for their gaining accompusnment. it is a neaitny, noperul sign for them, and it might be a good antidote for smugness here in tne unitea states. Ruth Millett Wife's Attitude Toward Mate Can Make, Break Marriage Thi3 word of advice is meant especially for young wives just beginning their marriages, but it is never too late for a wife who wants to better her marriage to put it into practice. The advice is simply this: Never , waste time thinking or talking about your husbands faults. whoever he is and whatever he is. he is sure to have faults and more of them than you realized when you married him. Just as you his wife may have more faults than he knew about whan he mar-But the way to be happy and to make you husband happy is to accept the faults along with the good qualities as making up a whole person, and then dismiss the faults from your mind and find pride in thinking about aii of your husbands good qualities. He is sure to have many, else you would never have fallen in love CONCENTR ATE ON GOOD POINTS So get into the habit of thinking Ebout his good points. And when you talk about him. don't mention anything that isn't a good qualitv. It is just as easy to build a husband up to your friends and relatives as to tear him down. And it will certainly bring happier results. The main difference between a happy and an unhappy wife is this: The happy wife thinks and talks about those qualities in her husband that make her love and admire him. The unhappy wife takes her husband's good qualities for yranted but broods over his every fault And then tries to get sympathy from others by sharing with them all she has to put up with because bar hus-band won't do this or does do that. By her own attitude a wife often chooses whether or not she will be a happy wife or a discontented one. his Questions and Answers Q — How does Lak^ Superior rank anions frish water bodies?

Small farm operators, with a total yearly payroll of S2.500 or less will not need to make any social security reports until after the end of the year. However, their record keeping should begin with the day on which the first worker is hired. For these records, the farmer should get each worker's name and number from the worker's social security card and should keep an accurate record of all cash wages paid to each worker and the ■amount of social security tax withheld- This year, a farm hand will be covered by social security as soon as he is paid $100 in cash by the same farmer. Farm operators who have hired help and who do not have employer identification numbers should get in touch with the local internal revenue office of the social security office immediately.

JORDAN, M.D. Although deaths from appendici tis have been greatly reduced in .umber they still occur: most of them could have been avoided. If acute appendicitis is diagnosed early and the appendix is removed surgery, there is little danger. However, much of the trouble comes because the pain may not be. s severe as people expect it to Consequently, they are too like ly to ignore the symptoms for several days and by that time the an-, pendix may have ruptured and re sulted m pentonms. Once in a whole the appendix, instead of lying near the front of the abdomen on the right side, may be twisted toward the back so that the only symptom is back The appendix can lie in some other part of the abdomen also and it is not safe, therefore, to think that pain which is in the lower right side is the only kind which can mean appendicitis. THE USE OF cathartics or laxatives in the presence of abdominal pain is dangerous. A laxative causes the w-ave-like motions of the intestines to increase. Large waves hasten the rupture of an acutely inflamed appendix. When this happens peritonitis develops, a serious complication in Laxatives should be avoided like poison if there is the slightest suspicion of appendicitis. To some extent food and drink also increase the wave-like motions of the intestines. Sometimes when people have been caught in the wilderness or some place where they cannot operated on. the inflammation in the appendix has subsided by forbidding all food and drink and applying cold to the abdomen. This a useful emergency measure but es not. of course, get at the root of the trouble. THE SYMPTOMS OF appendi-tis may betypical and easy to diagnose. If the pain is rather acute and located in the right lower part the abdomen with slight fever, re is a good chance of appendi citis. Of course, this alone is not Vomiting commonly accompa nies appendicitis but diarrhea is almost always absent. e presence of too many white blood cells almost invariably accompanies acute appendicitis. For this reason a olood count is most important if appendicitis is sus- ONE SHOULD NOT take chances with this important disease. One surgeon has written me about his distress when having to argue with patients as to whether a necessary operation for appendicitis could be avoided or postponed. In recent years penicillin has often been given before operation and afterwards, and this seems to make the recovery somewhat easier. With prompt diagnosis and surgery the dangers from appendicitis are slight: without them the risks remain considerable. fffi^i Jit Li €?f. Al\ In WASHINGTON WASHINGTON — (Special > — With threats of a June automobile in» dustry strike over the guaranteed annual wage issue, mere is a DUim-up of' national interest and speculation on its possible outcome. The most authoritative guess so far obtainable from tne employers' it of view comes from Frank Rising of Detroit, general manager of the Automotive Parts Manufacturers Association. He says: "I believe the United Auto Workers' leaders want a strike a big strike." He amplified this view at ah on-the-record dinner arranged for him Washington by U. S. Chamber of Commerce. Rising is of the opinion that the primary target of UAW on the guaranteed annual wage issue is General Motors. He reasons mat even if Ford or Cnrysier gave some kuio. k>l m>uciuch. UAW President Walter Reuther, he would still have to get it from General' Motors for it to be a success. The possibility that Reuther would strike more than one company at the same time is considered real. Frank Rising makes clear that ba is not spokesman for the Cham* ber or for the auto manufacturers. SO FAR. FORD AND GENERAL MOTORS, who have been In actual negotiations with UAW on a new contract, have been completely silent. This follows their policy of not discussing issues during collective bargaining. Rising is just the first employer representative who has dared stick his head out to oppose Reuther on the "GAW" issue. He is adviser and consultant on labor relations for the auto parts industry, though he takes no part in negotiations. He admits to being a kind of industry gossip. He talks to all the employers. And he has made a two-year study of what is now called in Detroit, "the guaranteed annual wedge." The costs of "GAW" cannot be computed, says Rising. The estimated four per cent of payroll contribution to a full pay for unemployment might run to 16 cents an hour wage increase. "GAW" would necessitate a complete change of present seniority rules and job classifications. It could mean that the auto makers might have to become their own pans manufacturers in order to provide work in slack seasons. This latter angle is one that particularly bothers the independent parts makers. There are 500 of these companies now, with 400,000 employes. THEY RUN FROM SMALL PLANTS with fewer than 100 employes, up to Borg-Warner with 25.000. They dp not include the tire, battery, steel, glass and textile suppliers. "GAW" would not mean that all parts makers would go out of business. Many parts makers and some auto companies ■ have gone out of business without a guaranteed annual wage. But the death of others might be hastened by it, says Rising. Ford and General Motors, he says, might afford to set up private, supplementary unemployment compensation funds. This would be on top of the present state job insurance system. Smaller companies couldn't afford that luxury. Rising once suggested to Reuther that the unions themselves could do this by an increase in dues, paid by a raise in wages to cover it. Reuther's answer was one word, "Nonsense." Rising sees a number of possible outcomes to the present nervousness. * He does not foresee an across-the-board settlement. The big companies might agree to set up supplementary unemployment funds for a year, then decide how to administer them. The auto companies have so far had record first and second quarter business. Sixty per cent of the cars are normally bought in the first half of the year. A STRIKE IN THE DULLER third quarter might provide an opportunity to settle some of the issues now in dispute and permit better than average business in the fourth quarter. Though "GAW" is the most complex issue the industry has faced since the sit-down strike days, it will ultimately be settled, Rising predicts. Everything is always settled somehow. Making clear that a compromise settlement is not his own idea, but a composite of what a lot of other people in his industry think, Rising outlines these possibilities for a package settlement: A good W'age increase of 6 to 8 cents an hour. An additional paid holiday for a total of eight. An improvement in pension fund provisions. Possibly increased health and welfare insurance. . Improvement in vacations. A guaranteed 40-hour work week, when there is work. This would not eliminate seasonal layoffs for model changes. Reuther is not in a position to get "GAW" at this time. Reuther himself says he will get it in 1955 and it will radiate to other industries. 3.0ay We^nd** Deceit W dSUr ^HPk Jl car* • Vft ».';;.> -f.\ ■ \ ....... nit w5 ^ ■ .1: \ \ . .
