Editorial— Inconveniences dr Not, Here to Stay |You Don't Have to Be There, But Your Dollars Do R is estimated that a record- breaking 83 million Americans) or 98 million families, will spend more than three billion dollars on vacations this year. Yet the sad fact is that countless millions.of 'these vacationers will find their dreams of happy hours spoiled a bit by the "four- day itch." This is an ailment, unknown to medical science, which usually strikes on the fourth day of vaca< tion. Symptoms can be observed in all members of the family Dad will start muttering about the muttonhead who has taken over his office chores, or fret about the customers he could be calling on. He itches to get back to the grind. Though Mom probably won't admit it, she feels the same longing. She misses the bridge club, and she can't see the mountains for those familiar mounds of dirty clothes around the house. Moreover, she's discovered tha,t the "conveniences" of the summer cottage aren't so convenient. Timet Jterald, Carrell, Iowa Monday, July 4, 1957 They miss their ..neighborhood friends.. And they worry that Queeniey who's, been left at the ketmefc, j^lspltefully starve her- Still, ydu can bet they'll all go away next year and, according to the trend, stay longer. Why? There are lots of reasons. National prosperity is one. Improved highway facilities is an other. Enticing Installment plans help to spread vacation costs, and industry believes more and more that longer vacations often boost productivity. The biggest reason of all would seem to be that the "four-day itch" ,to return home isn't nearly so bothersome as the "50-week itch" to get away. « Thoughts Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.—Proverbs 31:31.

Unsung Agencies Do Most Good in Foreign Aid Plan By PETER EDSON i NEA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON - (NEA)-When critics start kicking foreign aid around for being a give-away, they frequently overlook half a dozen of the smaller programs .which do the greatest good. Ail are so little publicized that they are not usually identified with the U.S. mutual security program. As Undersecretary of State Douglas Dillon points out, three- fourths of the 3.6-billion-dollar foreign aid program approved by the Senate and now before the House goes for military assistance and defense support. This contributes to free-world security, but it is for destructive weapons. By contrast, the one-fourth of ing malaria is estimated at 23 million dollars for next year. ' United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund — UNICEF — started at the end of the war, last year reached 37 million of the 600 million children in the world who lack adequate food and medical protection. This aid was extended through 3fl centers in 98 different countries. The U.S. contribution for the coming year has been set at 11 million dollars. For the resettlement of escapees from communism, other refugees, migrants and stateless persons, a U.S. contribution of 30 million dollars has been asked of Congress for 1958. This includes: 5.5 million for In American Merchandising— Pressure Cans Spray a Revolution By DICK KLEINER NEA Staff Correspondent several other types. In 1956, 56,000,000 cans of vari- N K^!? K 7 T A> -^lou^'taS ^Tnsecfsp ^ay we're push the little valve down and the 1 v 3 - trichloromonofluoromethane goes down and around and the pigeon repellent comes out here. That is pretty much how the pressure cans that have revolutionized a large segment of American merchanidisng work. A shake of a can, a press of a button, a gas expands and out comes the product —• everything from pigeon repellent to dry vermouth, fire extinguishing foam to whipped cream, rose dust to scouring powder. And more and more cans are being shaken, buttons pressed and products sprayed every year. In 1956, some 240,000,000 assorted pressure cans, carrying a total value of $250,000,000 were manufactured; back in 1947, the first year sales were large enough to measure, the figure was a paltry 5,000,000 units manufactured. That's a gain of 4,800 per cent in about nine* years, which is a fairly high pressure percentage. The reason for the gain is simply that pressure cans offer the consumer a handy dispenser of a wide variety of products. From 'Bug*Bomb' made; 53,700,000 cans of assorted hair sprays; 45,400,000 cans of lather shaving cream; 32,100,000 cans of room deodorants; and millions upon millions of cans of odds and ends like' shampoos, paints, artificial snow, perfume, sun tan oil, waxes, oven cleaners, rug cleaners 'and virtually anything you can imagine. And there are other millions of cans of products for industrial use made, too. Two Kinds Actually, there are two kinds of pressure cans, technically known as two-phase or three - phase. Sometimes people call them "aerosols," but this is a misnomer un less applied strictly to two-phrase cans. Aerosol means to diffuse through the air, which is what an insecticide or room deodorant does, but nobody diffuses whipped cream or paint through the air unless he's sneaky. The two-phase can is the true aerosol. It's a gas-tight package with a pipe extending from the valve at the top to the bottom of the can. Two-thirds of the can is filled with the liquid phase of the foreign aid broadly classified as U.S. aid to escapees; 2.2 million economic assistance is construe-1 for the U.N. refuge" fund — UN- tive in nature. It includes the pro- j REF — which is trying to move posed new 500-million-dollar development loan fund, 250 million for presidential emergency funds, 150 million for U.S. technical assistance, and 145 million for nonre- gional projects. Included in this last category are the U. S. atoms-for-peace program, the free - world malaria eradication program, international children's welfare, aid for Hungarian refugees and other migrants and escapees from Iron Curtain countries, ocean freight payments for private foreign relief shipments, U.S. guarantees for private American investment's overseas and cooperation on U.N. technical assistance. The atoms - for - peace program, launched by President Eisenhower before the U.N. in 1953, will cost an estimated seven million dollars In the fiscal year 1958. Thirty-four countries are now cooperating with the U.S. on this effort. It provides for training foreign nuclear scientists in the United States and for U.S. payment of one-half the cost — but not over $350,000 — to any country desiring to build its own research reactor, Sixty nations are cooperating on the five-year campaign to wipe out malaria. This disease afflicted 200 million people last year and caused two million deaths. The American contribution to eradicat- people out of refugee camps; 12.5 million for Intergovernmental Committee on European Migration —ICEM—which is trying to resettle emigrants from overpopulated countries; 10 million dollars for Hungarian refugees. Last year the U.S. spent 40 million on Hungarian refugee movement alone. The United States cooperates with 60 other countries in the United Nations Technical Assist ance program—UNTA. The U.S will contribute about 15 million dollars of the 35 million budgeted for this work next year. UNTA recruits technical experts from all over the world for service In the less-developed countries. This helps reduce the drain on American technicians ' for foreign service. The ocean freight program provides 2.2 million dollars to pay transportation costs on relief shipments sent overseas by U.S. religious, charitable and welfare organizations. The investment guarantee program's purpose is to protect American investors in foreign enterprises from loss through political expropriation. Its administrative costs are only $25,000 a year. But guarantees have been written on over 500 million dollars' worth of investments in 31 foreign countries. V the skin and cause trouble?—Mrs. J. N.

Meanwhile, back in the can," there's now more room In the top, or gassy, phase of the can. So some of the gas in the liquid vaporizes within the can, joining the gas layer, thus keeping the pressure constant; Three-Phase The three-phase is used for products that will not mix with the liquid gas. Thus, there are three layers inside the can — the gas, the liquid active ingredient (like hair spray) and the liquid . gas. When the valve Is pressed* 1 just the ingredient is forced out. A variation on this is the foam- type can — like the Shaving cream dispenser. There are the same three layers, but, when you shake the can, the two liquids are mixed. And, when the valve is pressed, enough gas is ejected to vaporize and whip the soap solution into a foam. All three types must be packaged carefully. Shipping, packing, storing are all closely watched,* for pressure cans can, under certain circumstances, explode. The success of pressure cans and the problems of packing have created a new subsidiary industry — the contract fillers. Only a few of the biggest manufacturers of ingredients package their own. Most farm out the packing to a growing list of small plants that do nothing but fill pressure cans. The future looks big. In the works are containers made of plastic and glass and methods which will make it possible to package dry products — like face powder, sugar, fertilizer—in pressure packages.

A recent issue of one of those magazines designed to make young men feel older and old men feel young carries an article on separate vacations for husbands and wives. The male author takes the stand that men have been henpecked into family vacations and they ought to demand separate vacations. I venture to say there are as many wives as husbands who would like a separate vacation, it the wife got an equal break with the husband. That is, if the husband would keep the children while the wife goes away for two weeks and if $he would keep the children while he got away from it all. The trouble is, when most husbands speak of separate vacations what they mean is that they will go off by themselves. Mama can take the kids and go somewhere for a couple of weeks.
