A year ago this coming July, the Western powers, meeting with the Communists at Geneva, negotiated the Indochina truce which divided Viet Nam into two parts, one Communist and the other free. rwinimnslv since that time, it has been the habit of some of our more emotional politicians to refer to this pact as the "sell-out" ot Indochina, it nas Deen cnargeu again and again that at Geneva the West "let" some 10 million Viet-•nomoco din hphinri thp Ramboo Curtain. This version of the events in Indochina and Geneva has been propounded so steadily that it has been picked up by others who do not appear to realize its distortions. A review or lyo4 events may serve as a userui correcuve. Last spring, after a hard battle, the Red Vietminh captured the French-held fortress of Dienbienphu in what is now called North Viet Nam. Though the place was a minor outpost, the French had fortified it heavily and had deliberately sought this fight from fixed lines. They were confident they could win such a contest. At the time of this decisive battle, the Vietminh already held large areas of North Viet Nam. including portions of the rich Red River delta lying between the sea and the key northern city of Hanoi. When Dienbienphu fell, it was widely predicted that an "exhausted" rebel army would be unable to push on to new conquest for weeks or months to come. But what happened in fact, as a glance at the dispatches of that time will show, is that the Reds regrouped quickly and began pressing eastward toward Hanoi with embarrassing speed. It became readily apparent, and on this the trained observers on the scene agreed, that Hanoi was a doomed city and would fall to the Vietminh before very much time passed. This was the actual military situation, and the prospect, when the conferees were meeting at Geneva. The vital northern heart of Indochina was gone — or going. You cannot "sell out" what vou do not have to sell. All the evidence indicates that if France and the West had not handed over North Viet Nam at Geneva, the Reds would soon have had it all — and perhaps much more. Possibly ' only important intervention by Britain and America could have blocked the Vietminh conquest. Neither was willing to step in, ana tne weary French army was no match for the augmented rebel force supplied by China and Russia. None of this means nothing could have been done by the West, including America, at an earlier stage to save Indo cnma. Mistakes may well nave been many. .British-American intervention might have been a wise course, though certainly it would have been politically difficult in nations just freed of the Korean war burden. • But the point is that by the time of Dienbienphu and Geneva, the cause was lost. The historians will have to argue whether the West let North Indochina slip away gradually, through a policy of blindness and drift. It was not "sold" at Geneva, for no one will buy what he knows he can take anyway.

Ruth Millett Post Mor terns on Decisions Make Wife's Life Difficult The person who criticizes anoth-- s choices- and decisions just to build himself up is hard to deal But here is a wife who has to deal with the problem every day because the one v. ho does the crit icizing is her husband. • writes: "No matter what the decision I make without consulting my husband, it is always wrong. If ;ren t so frustrating it wouia be almost funny. For I know before I tell him what I have done or ihown him what I have bought tnat it won't be right. "And vet if I had consulted him in advance, he would often have ade the same choice that I did. Is tii ere any answer to this pruh- ere are two. You can go ahead and see the funny side of the si getting a private chuckle of your husband's contrariness Or vou can attempt to cure him of his habit of always finding fault rith your choices and decisions oy nakuig him decide so many things he is willing to take what you decide and like it. do that, you'll have to consult him on everything— the smallest and most trivial details. If he isn't at home, put off the decision. Or call him at his office if the matter can't be put off. When he protests. "Can't you decide anything for yourself" answer bweetly. "I can — but you so often think I should have clone differently that it is easier to ask your opinion first." Chances are he'll get fed up in a huny. When he does, just remind him that if he wants you to make the decisions you don't expect any complaints. What's Right? Gum-chewing in public is bad enough but the worst offender of all is the person who parks his gum under chans. table counters, or simply throws it on the street or sidewalk for someone else to pick up— on their shoes. If you must chew gum in public, at least dispose of it properly when vou are finished. Out Our Way British Voting Light to Heavy LONDON — Britons voted at a "fairly light" to "very heavy" n national elections today de ciding whether the nation will stick with Prime Minister Eden s servatives or swing left to Clement Attlee's Laborites. Skies were alternately overcas and bright as voters marked ballots for 630 members of a new" House of Commons. Each voter cast but one ballot, and that for one candidate — the voter's choice lor Parliament in that district. Eden exuded confidence but said "Nobody can tell — at least I certainly cannot tell you — hew wide or nanow the margin may he." j-election opinion, polls favor ed the Conservatives. The outcome ay be known by early Friday iiernoon. The party getting a aionty in Parliament will form e Cabinet — with Eden at the helm if his free enterprise party wins and Attlee at the helm if his socialists emerge the victors. If the margin of victory is any thing better than razor thin, the ing party will nave a mandate jvem for the next five years.

A kind of game developed at the table as everyone tested the balls. "Look." a cafteria official said to the group, "if you want to play handball go to the Y. M. C. A. You're supposed to eat here." But he modified his tone considerably when he recognized the No. 2 man of the department was one of the participants. OFFICIALS at the Commerce Department are now scouring Latin America for lightweight cow horns. It seems there's a shortage of them in this country due to the terrific demand by juvenile Davy Crocketts for powder horns. LeRoy Shane, Inc.. of Rochester. Minn., wrote in to the department asking for help on this problem. The firm said it has sold thousands and thousands of these accessories, and had exhausted the supply of junior-size cow horns. Western horns are considered to be too heavy for the kids. * t * * MILITARY VICTORY of the week: Lt. Gen.

He chased it around the bowl with the toothpick for several moments when a dainty young lady drifted by and came to his rescue. "This is the way to handle that maneuver." she told the gen-eral.
