They help to give the public an insignt into the fine work which AA is doing here and in other titles, and without fanfare. Such meetings also help those who need assistance from this form of illness to know that there is such an organization and that itg doovg are open to alcoholics who realize their need for help and show R willingness to overcome their weaknesses. If th« names could be called of men, and in some cities, women, too, who have •tarted new lives through the sympathetic assistanc* given by others who Jiave traveled the route before them, it w^ould giv* the movement momentum, bjut it is best that such .an organization work quietly arid without fanfare. I It is encouraging to see that ministers and other wise counsellors in larger numbers art giving of their time to help those who ask for assistance. And it is interesting to find members of the AA who show such devotion when they receive calls for assistance, sometimes in the dead of night to go on an errand of mercy. • Members of the AA and their volunteer assistants :ire finding much satisfaction in their labors of love. May their labors bear fruit to the point that eventually the curse of alcoholism can be licked completely. which of course ig essentially correct. It should be the goal of our business community and, if necessary, of our government that everyone who wants to work has a chance to work and a chance for advancement. That is as much to the interest of the manager as the worker. But that should not mean that unions or government becomes so protective as to put no premium on zeal and ability. It should be no excuse for featherbedding- For security without effort leads to stagnation. That may seem like an old-fogeyish argument. But America's industrial pre-eminence is due in no small part to the fact that there lias been a close relationship between a worker's industry and his reward. Thai relationship has not always been unclouded by prejudice and discrimination. Yel in comparison with other countries. America has always offered a social atmosphere of remarkable freedom and incentive. Many barriers to fair-dealing and opportunity for the worker have been removed in the past few years. Some of those gains were rmule in the un- nalural business conditions of wartime. Since the two did nol naturally separate themselves, it is nut surprising: thut some of the newer members of our labor force got the idea that the- acquisition of new rjghts and the discarding of old responsibilities were part of the same pattern. We are confident that the American people will not permit labor's rightful gains to be destroyed. At the same time it is well that the old idea of an honest day's work for a decent day's pay is being revived. For thiit is one of the foundation stones of our material greatness. The work day has been shortened and the pay increased, but Llie basic relationship of responsibility to reward should not be forgotten. VIEWS OF OTHERS Should Congress Be Televised? Why Not Carry the Gag a Little Further? $33? INFLATING OR DBFIATINCJ?' " VJILfftE SOUTHERM DEMOCRATIC ^WEDNESDAY, MARCH 16, 1949 China's New Premier May Try Using Ideas in Place of Bullets Th« DOCTOR SAYS By Edirln P. Jordan, M, D. Written for NEA Service A tremendous gain In knowledge about the value of whole blood transfusions and of blood preparations like plasma has occurred during and since the war. In accidents, severe hemorrhages, and In several different kinds of diseases, the giving of blood transfusions or ol plasma often means the difference between life and death. Whole blood, when it can be given, is more valuable than plasma or the other portions of the blood because it contains all of the elements required, It cannot be used in all cases, however, as In addition to the time limit on Its preservation, it also requires "matching" with blood of the recipient or receiver In order to avoid undesirable reactions. When this matching Is not possible then plasma is especially useful as the latter can be given without danger of reaction, Separate Use Possible Whole blood consists of pla.sma and red blood cells. When the plasma is prepared for special purposes the red blood cells are available or other use. The cells separated 'rom the plasma may be resuspend- or mixed witli some other liquid and used for patients who do not have enough plasma. These resus Foreign Ministry Shift in Russia Not to Mean Improvement in Relations With Western Nation By Peter Edson XEA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON (NBA) — Before making any wild guesses about the meaning ot the Russian Foreign Ministry shift from Molotov to look back at the record. Last, November at the,Paris United Nations meeting, Secretary of State George C. Marshall said that the Soviet, Union was conducting a "propaganda peace offensive." The effect of General Marshall's statement was to brand this peace offensive as a phony. It was design::! V\ore Elbow Grease Evident In Workers' Daily Output • "The nation's workers are putting more elbow grease into their jobs these days." That is how the Wall Street Journal sums up the result of its countrywide survey of industry. In mining, lumbering and marufacturing, both light and heavy, employers report that individual efficiency and productivity are approaching the prewar level, and in some cases have attained it. Various reasons are advanced: greater selectivity in hiring is now possible; more experienced workers are back at their old j >bs; new workers are becoming seasoned; fear of layoffs and cutbacks is spurring workers lo greater effort. Better machinery, better em- ploye relations, and incentive systems are also mentioned as stimulants to higher production. < This is not surprising news. The sell- ers'-markel honeymoon is drawing to a close for employes as well as employers. High costs and easing demands call for a general tightening up. Supply has caught up with demand in the labor market, too. There is now competition for jobs as well as for markets. But this news, though not surprising, may arouse indignation in some quarters. It will he argued that there niust b« no insecurity of employment, To televise Congress, as Senator Pepper of Florida and Representative .Lane of Massachu- *etla, propose, could help a great deal In Increasing the efficiency of that body. Of course It would provote a certain amount or playing to the galleries. But in the long run the effect would be lor more attention to the Job, Us dignity, and better debates on the floor. In his book, "A Twentieth Century Congress," Senator Kefauver of Tennessee says thai the reaction of American youngsters who go to Washington and see Congress at work Is one of disappointment And disillusionment. In the Senate "they may see a great argument on a vital intcr- nationul Issue suddenly interrupted by a Senator who will proceed to make a long speech that has no bearing on the subject being debated. "They may see a Senator making a speech to an almost empty chamber. They may .see his colleagues reading newspapers or Just wandering in and out." In the House "they may see less than 10 per cent of the members on tne floor," milling, talking, bobbing In and oul of the rear of the chamber where the cloakrooms aie located, while a member is speaking earnestly in the well of the House. "This is not to contend that Congress can order its business so as to pioriuce, evt'ry day, an exciting, historic drama." Senator Kefauver writes. "But It should spur thoughtful members to demand a searching inquiry into the present procedures on the floor of both the Senate and the House." What the Christian Science Monitor's Volney Hurd has to say about national conventions under the eye of television is appropriate to congress also. He quotes from a radio colleague who wrote of the Republican and Democratic conventions: "To see some political iias-bccn gel up at Ihe speakers' platform and mouth through a buncii of tired cliches . . . has to be seen to be appreciated. I think the next convention will be very different from Ihe childish spectacles presented this year." Tlie party hack the filibustering Senator, the hate-spouting demagogue, all would be realized to voters through television broadcasts as they could be realised in no other \vay. So. more happily, would be the tine qualities of members who bring fairness and sense of purpose and ability and hard work to Capitol Hill. If millions ol voters were looking on as their representatives transacted their common business, able members would be Inspired to their oest, and the less able to emulate them. —ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH to play upon the world's desire for peace, he said. But its real purpose was to weaken the position of the United States. Hints of a- peace oflen.sive were not lacking. There were several inside stories, some obviously inspired, to indicate that the Commie line would soon change again and that henceforth there would be more cooperation between Soviet Russia and the West. On Dec. 18 the Soviet political representative in Vienna declared have sh Moscow would not oppose resump- results, lion of Austrian peace talks. Against On Jan. 11 French Communist Deputy Marcel Cachin called for a Truman-Stalin meeting and denounced the view that the differing svsteim of the U.S. and the U. S. S. R. prevented collaboration. This sentiment was echoed by Italian Communist leader Palmiro To- gliatti. On Jan. 18 the Soviet Embassy Information Bulletin in Washing- Ion for the first time wished the American people a Happy New Year lites re! and hoped that a decisive step to- Nations wards achievement of peace could be taken in 1949.

There was never any direct note from the Russian government to the American government saying in effect, "Let's have peace. Let's sit down and taJk this over." In September the American. British and French governments had made such an approach to the Russian government. There were long discussions in Moscow between the Three Ambassadors a.nd Molo- and black market operations.

On Feb. 1 Russia opposed Norway's Joining the North Atlantic Feb. 10 fifteen Bulgarian Pact. On Evangelical ministers were arrested. On Feb. 16 Russia withdrew from the World Health Organization.

Plasma is a good emergency substitute for whole blood in the treatment of hemorrhage or severe bleeding; it is the best substance to use to replace the plasma lost from severe burns, and provides an already prepared protein for patients with acute illnesses requiring it. Now plasma can be separated into its component or separate parts. It is possible to give the individual plasma proteins which serve particular purposes in comparatively pure form. These parts or fractions of plasma may eventually replace the use of whole plasma. In peacetime and with the aid of "blood banks," whole blood is, however the greatest life saver of all. • • • Note: Dr. Jordan is unable to answer individual questions from readers.

John plays Jim Gillis .on "The Life of Rllcy." Gleason is playing the part in the film version of the same.
