He said the Republicans might soon accuse the Democrats of enjoying "creeping- harmony." At the well-publicized meeting of Democrats in Chicago, signs of party unity did indeed seem to be strong. As former President Truman conceded, being in the'minority is partly responsible. Nothing unites a group like adversity. Democrats in Congress this year gave plenty of evidence of that. Yet the look of unity is in fact somewhat deceptive. The issues that have divided the party in the past have not vanished. Civil rights will be heard from again, and the battle of northern liberals and southern conservatives will continue. Those matters lie relatively quiet now because the Democrats do not have a President of their own party pressing civil rights legislation or liberal reforms. Nothing has occurred so far to suggest that the conflicts will not flare anew when the Democrats get around again to choosing a presidential nominee and a platform. There could have been trouble nt Chicago over the so-called loyalty pledge introduced into the convention rules last year. The pledge called on all delegates to do all in their power to see that convention nominees got on the various state ballots under the Democratic label. It was designed to take the steam out of revolts like the Dixiecrat affair of 1VMS. But the preachers of unity prevailed at this first important Democratic gathering since Stevenson's defeat. A Committee was named to study the loyalty issue, and a breach now was averted. As 1956 draws closer, the dilemma will have to be faced. Moreover, party leaders will have to confront the fact that a number of southerners who bolted to President Eisenhower in 1952 may not come back into the fold. A few of these were missing from Chicago this time. It can bee glossed over now, but not when there's an election. At Chicago the party leaders, made beginning efforts to develop a new set of issues for use against the Republican regime in 1954. They hope to make capital out of falling farm prices, Martin Durkin's resignation 'as secretary of labor, and cuts in the defense program. But this stands out: Stevenson is the No. 1 Democrat. He presides over the party's new-found but still skin-deep um'ty. Whether he can hold this position long enough to become a serious candidate for 1956 depends partly upon how vigorously he leads, and partly on whether his fellow Democrats in all regions can see in him a man capable of en- couraging a. deeper party unity • n d forging a fresh party program. Ribbon-Cutting Mayor Gets Snipped of Job Mayor Impellitteri, the man who tried to make a political career out of ceremonial ribbon-cutting, has been deprived of his scissors. The voters of New York City disarmed him in a Democratic primary election that went overwhelmingly to Robert Wagner, son of the late New York senator. Impellitteri wa's elected four years ago as an independent in rebellion against the city's Democratic organization. Thereafter he seemed to place some odd interpretations on the meaning of independence. In the view of many, he acted as if New York could run itself, independent of any help from him. New Yorkers never heard much about important decisions emerging from his office. Mostly they just saw his picture in the papers as he snipped a ribbon or greeted a visitor. Pretty soon a lot of •them got the idea lie started out in the morning with his scissors firmly encased in its holster, and proceeded from ceremony to ceremony. Well, after Jan. 1 it will be different. If "Impy" can find an old pair of shears about the house, he'll have plenty of time to clip old newspapers and bring h i s scrapbook up to date. It will probably be filled with pictures of him holding his mayor's scissors. Views of Others What Fools We Mortals Be! Great nations, led by the United states and Russia, are scrambling with all their might to learn the last iota of mystery hidden in atomic and hydrogen energy. They want the secret as a last resort for use in war should such use become desirable or necessary as a desperate means of defense. Efforts to arrive at some agreeable control and to minimize the threat of mass destruction have gotten nowhere because the Communists cannot he trusted, for one thing, and because, for another, they won't agree to a rational formula to begin with. What, then, in the absence of goodwill and cordiality, can be done? Are we not back where we started, w^th the race going at full blast and with every day bringing us nearer the precipice of total disaster — unless wiser heads can prevail in steering the ships of state? While all this grasping is In progress to acquire weapons of wholesale slaughter, on the rash theory that their possession will preserve the peace, medical science is equally as hard at work searching for methods of preserving and prolonging human life. The wonder drugs that came with World War II, and which have been added to since then, have saved perhaps millions of lives. And saved them( protentially, for annihiUation by atomic and hydrogen explosives should mankind once lose its sense of equilibrum and train these hellish devices upon an innocent populace. So that different groups of scientists are making startling progress in two directions simultaneously ,one toward methods of destruction and the other in the hope of preserving life upon this planet. There is madness In the one instance and great wisdom in the other, and with equal enthusiasm both ways. It is a paradoxical striving by scientific brains. ^ We think we are smart, as a race. And we are. But, withal, and in our desperate groping in conflicting efforts, what'fools indeed we mortals be! —Henderson (N.C.) Dally Dispatch. Cause and Effect SO THEY SAY I guess I'll be living out of a suitcase again. — Fred Scaton, former senator, appointed Assistant Secretary of Defense. * * * We have halted the Kremlin's global program for piecemeal aggression. — ThursUm B.

Martin, Jr. Erskine Johnson IN HOLLYWOOD Peter ft/son's Washington Column — Red Chinese Navy Is Growing; U. S. Navy Proud of "Burgers' By DOUGLAS LARSEN WASHINGTON —(NBA) —New ntelligence reports on the size and growing importance of the Red China navy have just been revealed in the semiofficial publication, "TJ. S. Naval Institute Proceedings." Most of the ships are U. S.-made landing craft which the Commies captured from the , Nationalists ™n Curing the "civil -' war. One of these ships, a converted ,SM, shelled a British gunboat not ar from Hong Kong last week, idling seven of the crew mem- >ers. Gene Z. Hanrahan, student of ihinese afiairs, reports Bed China lavy now has 400 vessels—about he same number of U. S. ships ow on active duty. The difference S that the total tonnage of the China navy is only, 80,000. Biggest hip is what's called a light cruls- r, the Victory, with six-inch guns nd 5460 tonnage. But this ship ever ventures beyond the protec- ion of shore batteries. Mr. Hanrnhan declares that the ew Chinese • emphasis is on sub- larines and. high speed torpedo oats organized in groups of naval shock patrols." Red China is cred- Led with having up to 30 subs, ome of them modern, Russian- ullt, and snorkel-equipped. The U. S. Navy says officially it m't worried by the present trength of the Red China navy, ut it is watching its development Mth a careful eye. . Navy Hamburgers The Navy has come up with the history of the American hamburger sandwich. It was revealed in the latest Bureau of Supplies and Acc o u n t s 1 newsletter, which explained: "Hamburgers were named in the last century after sailors from the port of Hamburg, Germany, who we,re In the habit of eating raw chopped beef patties. Though most hamburgers, are now served cooked studies show that more hamburgers than any other meat item are now consumed In public eating places." In the same report the Navy claims that its recipe for hamburgers is the best. It includes bread crumbs, chopped onions, salt, pepper, eggs, and ground meat. Instructions for cooking, found in Navy Recipe Service (J-22), says, "grill on hot greased griddle at 325 degrees F. for 10 minutes or until done." Parrot Fever One of the major headaches of the Treasury Department's Bureau of Customs is enforcing an old public health law, which places drastic restrictions on the importation of parrots. Last year there were only 135 cases of parrot fever reported in the U. S. It's a respiratory infection and easily curable with the new antibiotic drugs. Turther. there's evidence that the disease might also come from domestic fowl. Nevertheless, the Bureau of Customs Is charged with enforcing the import ban which is currently made more difficult because of a bird fad. The birds include parakeets, or love birds, and macaws. Customs officials estimate that in the last two years at least 100,000 of these feathered pets have been smuggled Into the U. S., mostly across the Mexican border. Budget Balancing Veterans Administration and Labor Department officials are agreed that current record employment and job opportunities will be a big indirect help in balancing the budget. Instead of applying for the unemployment compensation of S26 per week for 26 weeks which is due them, Korean vets are finding jobs. ' The easy access of good jobs is also sidetracking thousands of veterans from using up their educational benefits. It was the experience after World War II that once a man got started in a good job he tended to pass up most of the schooling due him. Congress has earmarked $484,000,000 for the education program. A savings of that fund could be important. Lady Bureaucrat Mrs. Lottie Randolph, newly appointed assistant to Robert B. Mc- Leaish, boss of the Farmer's Home Administration, is the top female executive ever to serve in that agency, which grants loans to farmers. She's going to be a troubleshooter, McLeaish plans. She is well filled for that job, knows all about farm life and farm problems. A widow and grandmother, she is a real ball of fire. She has been assistant director of agriculture in Ohio twice and has held all kinds of important jobs with numerous farm agencies including the Grange. the Doctor Says— WHUel for NBA Service By EDWIN P. JORDAN, M.D A correspondent writes she weighs about fifteen pounds more than she should, but that she cannot lose on a 1500 calorie diet, even when she walks three miles a day. By way of preliminary remark, It may be said that this writer will not use up many calories in walk- Ing three miles a day. Obviously she needs a diet of less than 1500 calories if she is to lose her fifteen pounds and get back to her normal weight. The amount of energy used in a day varies from one person to an- O ui e r — a farmer or lumberman will use more than someone who sits all day at a desk. Consequently, a diet which will enable one person to shed unwanted poundage will be more than enough for another. The heat and fat producing value of foods is measured in calories. Excess calories can be stored as fat, so for practical purposes If more calories are taken in than are used up a person will gain weight. The reverse is also true, and reducing diets should be carefully planned so they contain enough of the necessary foodstuffs rich in protein, minerals and vitamins. -In general, a reducing diet should be low in fats and in starches or carbohydrates since the latter are converted Into fat by the body. As a rule, fatty foods and those containing starch have to be almost eliminated to lose weight and their place taken by bulky foods which have fewer calories. People Don't Know Many people, too, do not realize whole milk is more fattening than skim milk and sortie vegetables and fruits contain a lot more carbohydrate than others. ThoM desiring to lose should have a diet' for them containing wbattvtr number of ctilorlei they will need. If the diet is followed rigidly the loss of weight will show up soon and after a while the stomach seems to adjust to smaller quantities of food so that dieting becomes easier. THE YAMMERING heard in certain quarters over the failure of the Eisenhower administration to balance the national budget is nothing beside the screaming that will go on when spending is cut enough to really balance it.—Greenville (S.

Babe Didrikson is 'dreaming of Katherine Hepburn for her planned film biography. Hubby George Zaharias thinks MOM appropriated part of the Babe's life for the Spencer Tracy - Hepburn movie, "Pat and Mike," but saysr "We decided not to do anything about it." The Babe's latest achievement is an eyebrow lifter. She's turned out to be a harmonica Whiz and will make a record with guitar- playing Betty Dodd, daughter of Gen. Francis Dodd. . COMEDY COMING UP RAY MILLAND, playing comedy again, has a big video career in "Meet Mr. McNutley," slated for clarer's ace. Now South could take two spades, two hearts, and four diamonds for a 'total of only eight tricks. When South tried to develop his ninth trick in clubs, West stepped up promptly with the ace of clubs to cash three heart tricks and thus defeat the contract. South should have entered his hand wth a diamond in order to lead a club before trying the spades. If West put up the ace of clubs at once, South would have enough tricks without needing a spade finesse. If West failed to take his ace of clubs immediately, declarer would win a club trick at once and could then switch to spades in order to develop nine tricks. In other words, South must go after the clubs first because he can steal a trick without giving up the lead; and, having stolen that trick, he can safely go next to the spades. In actual practice, the best play of all is to begin by running the four diamonds, ending in the South hand for a club play. West would have a, terrible time finding safe discards, and if West discarded a. heart or two, the long suit would no longer be a menace. This is a point well worth remembering; it often pays to run even a comparatively short solid suit before beginning to develop your tricks at a contract of three no - trump.
