n EdTforfol— It's Hard to Kill Time, Especially A Lot of It If the 2ealous congressman" who has proposed a 35-hour work week will add a companion bill providing what people might do to keep j out of mischief in the additional j leisure hours there might be some | sense to his idea. Already there j are so many idle hours in mostj industrial centers, what with aj five-day week and a generally] fast scale of living, life is made j somewhat difficult for many who j just don't know what to do with themselves. Maybe a 35 -hour work week will be practical someday. If the rate of population increase continues and the scientific experts keep introducing labor saving devices, it is quite conceivable there just won't be enough work to go around whereby everyone can be kept busy at productive labor for more than 35 hours per week. But that can lead to trouble as well as enjoyment. At first thought, it might appear desirable if it became unnecessary for anyone to work more than around four days a week not to exceed a total of 35 hours. That would leave a lot of time for doing things about the home, recreation of one sort or another, and perhaps just complete relaxation. But the inventors keep bringing out things to do all those little tasks about the home automatically, or eliminate many of them completely. Recreation is a fine thing, but too much of it can have a souring effect. And Timet Herald, Carrel!, lows Thursday, Aug. 1, 1957 The Rack even relaxation is difficult on a forced basis. There is nothing] more productive of full scale boredom to an otherwise normally active man or woman than killing time. You don't kill time easily. So if there is to be congressional action on a 35-hour work week for this nation, it would be well for some serious consideration to be given the use of leisure time. The elementary schools, colleges and universities of the country are turning out scores of experts geared for high pressure careers, impressed with the basie idea that time is money. But no account is taken of what might be done with the greatly increased number of leisure hours. And, in a great many instances, idleness brings trouble. Thus the congressman who is advocating a 35-hour week might be rendering the nation a disservice, unless some provision is made whereby men and women can put their added hours of leisure to some good purpose.

Ike, Mamie to Face Tough Social Pressure at Newport By DOUGLAS LARSEN NEA Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON - (NEA) - Ike and Mamie are pretty adept at resisting social pressures and doing what they want with their spare time. But, when they hit flossy Newport, R. I., for their vacation they'll be subjected to some of the toughest social pressure that exists in the U. S. The fabulously wealthy Newport socialite and hostess, Mrs,. George Henry Warren, for example, is already planning an elaborate affair for the Eisenhowers. Mrs. Warren is president of the Newport Preservation Society, a group dedicated to .restoring some of the famous old mansions there and making it a second colonial Williamsburg. Another nationally ranked Newport hostess is Mrs. Sheldon Whitehouse. She is also planning a "do" for the President and First Lady. , If s a lead pipe cinch that Ike wffl get plenty of golf with famed, wealthy railroader Bob Young, who has a modest $100,000 shack up mere. Bob's sister-in-law is famed artist Georgia O'Keefe, by the way, who'll probably be visiting the Youngs then. It'll give Ike and Georgia a chance to talk art. - This will be a real test for Washington hostess Perle Mesta who has opened her house in Newport. So far Perle has never produced Ike and Mamie at a party. This may be her chance. Here's the inside story of what caused 89-year-old Sen. Theodore Francis Green" (D-R.I.) to collapse at a Pakistan Embassy party", reported by him to a close friend: The three previous days he had missed his regular workout at the Senate gym which includes barbell exercises, pushups and standing sprints. "So I was just out of 3 Possible Candidates at Present-— i Nicholas Called the 'Man to Beaf In Iowa Republican Governor Rate shape," he explained. This proves how hard the House of Representatives is working to wind up the session and get out of .town: Other day Rep. Brooks Hays (D-Ark.) made a speech comdemn ing the practice of members put ting their feet on the chairs in front of them. This was followed by a debate on the ethics of con gressmen reading newspapers while other members spoke. Few days later the House became embroiled in debate over the proper way to address female members. Should it be "gentlewoman" or "lady"? There was no , agreement. Some time later Rep. Bill Wid- nall (R-N.J.) raised the question of why the bells in the House, which call members to vote, were so much more shrill than the bells which summon senators to votes. And so goes our legislative process. In mid-summer the character of embassy partying changes from big receptions to smaller, fun-type affairs. Such a one was thrown the' other evening for the departing Dutch military attache, Col G. D. van Eppen and his wife. Cohostesses were a couple of the most glamorous attache wives In town, Mrs. Ralph Pargas of the Philippine embassy and Mrs. Alex Kawilarang from the Indonesian embassy.

Why is it that an allergic cause is so often not found in hives? Why does a patient's skin fail to react to foods when he is clearly allergic to them? While it is clear that many patients with allergy are affected by the weather, we do not know how this operates. Also we need to know more about how emotional factors affect allergies. Reasons exist for feeling that there is an hereditary influence in many allergies, but if so, why do some escape entirely? Why'do some acquire manifestations of allergy much later in life than others though all are exposed to the same circumstance? These and many other puzzles require solution. In view of the enormous number afflicted by one form of allergy or another we can hope that our knowledge wilt grow rapidly. 4 Groups Could Be Affected By Eisenhower's Oil Proposal By HARRISON WEBER (Iowa Daily Press Assn. Writer) DES MOINES ,- The Republican gubernatorial race apparently has simmered down to three possible candidates — former Governor Leo "Elthon, Lieutenant Governor William Nicholas and Dr. William G. Murray, Iowa State College. However, some influential Republican leaders expressed the viewpoint at Governor's Day at Clear Lake that a surprise candidate might crop up in the 1958 picture. They point out that Nicholas and Elthon are both - from the same area. In fact, only a stone's throw from each other. Elthon Is from Fertile and Nicholas from Mason City. They reasoned that aj candidate from some other district might be able to pick up enough votes because of the geographical factor to throw the race into convention. More than half of Iowa's 34 governors have come from the southern half of the state. If no candidate receives 35 per cent of the vote in the primary, then the race would go to convention. If this happens, it is doubtful that anyone from northern Iowa could muster enough support to carry off the candidacy. But, at present, Nicholas, the well-to-do turkey grower has been dubbed as "the man-to-beat." Some Republicans believe that Rep. Fred Schwengel, who is from Davenport and represents the first district, would be an ideal candidate. However, his wife is reported to be strongly opposed to his running for the governorship. Other possible "surprise" candidates might include Highway SO THEY SAY My wife wai one of the best women in the world. — Walter R.

Lucky the family that has a cook stay long enough these days to spoil the broth. By SAM DAWSON NEW YORK (*l-On paper the oil industry looks plenty rich. World wide production is up. Demand is expected to increase steadily for years. Profits for many companies are at all time highs. But even the wealthy have their family feuds. And their poor relations. President Eisenhower has just stepped into the middle of one of the bitterest fights—the squabble over how much foreign oil should be brought into the United States, most of it along the Eastern Seaboard. He wants the amount cut voluntarily to 12 per cent of domestic output instead of the lfi per cent scheduled by importers. His plan carries a threat of federal control, if ignored. This comes in a summer already marked, by oilmen's worries over a glut in supplies and price rises that are hard to make stick. Four groups could be affected by the president's plan: 1. Producers. Domestic well owners see in a cut in imports the chance to increase their own production, now held to 13 days a month in Texas by the regulatory bodies. Companies with large overseas oil sources see their profit margins narrowed if they can't bring in as much of the oil they produce more cheaply abroad. 2. Consumers. Their interests Is simple. They want planty of gasoline and fuel oil and they would like to see the price held down rather than rising again, 3. Defense planners. Their interest is in enough reserves be­ ing found in this country and enough production facilities developed by a prospering domestic oil industry to take care of any emergency, such as the possible cutting off of foreign sources by an enemy. 4. Other producing nations. Other friends, particularly Venezuela, profit greatly by sale of oil to the United States. The oil rich Arabian countries eye ruefully • anything that might cut into their royalties. The President's order for a voluntary cut in imports is aimed chiefly at the third group, the defense planners. Their argument: The domestic oil industry must | be kept prosperous or the incent- I Hive for drilling new wells will | disappear. Wildcatters aren't too i interested in bringing in wells that ; can be operated less than half time. Seven of the biggest American companies import most of the foreign oil. All but one have reported on their first half earnings. Profits for the six jumped strikingly this year over last. They say imports have little to do with that. The bonanza came when the Suez i Canal was blocked, opening up a big new, but temporary, market in Western Europe which helped drain off much of the over supply of oil that had piled up here. In all 26 U.S. oil companies have reported so far on first six months operations. Nine of the smaller ones, each with only domestic supplies, show a decline in profits from a year ago. The 26 as a -whole, however, earned $1,322,029,133. This was 18 per cent better than the same 26 did in the first half of 1956.

Urge Widow to Run Democratic legislators and friends are urging Mrs. Lawrence A. Falvey, Albia, to run for the vacancy in the legislature created by the death of her husband. Falvey, 56, who was serving his third term in the lower chamber, died last week while being taken from Albia to an Ottumwa hospital. His death created ihe third vacancy in the legislature. If a special session is called, at least three special elections will have to be held to fill the vacancies. Rep. C. J. Burris, (D) Maquoketa, and Sen. Arnold Utzig, (D) Dubuque, resigned to accept state posts.

Over 400 pounds of prime rib of beef were roasted at a Clear Lake bakery for the festive occasion. Attendants dished out 800 ears of golden corn before the supply was exhausted. Nearly 48 pounds of butter were used to season the corn. It took nine and a half crates of lettuce and eight gallons of Italian dressing to prepare the salad for the 600 guest?. And over 200 pounds of potatoes were used as the spuds were served au gratin style. Attendants poured M gallon* ef coffee and apple pie. topped with cheese provided the finishing touch. '. ' ... • E.

Ax to Fall It is rumored that the Tax Commission will step up its efficiency and economy movement very shortly by firing a half dozen or so auditors in the sales and use tax deppartment. So far, about 40 persons have either resigned or have been fired by the commission. Ten of these persons have been replaced. Lewis Lint, secretary of the commission, said he has received more than 300 applications for jobs on the tax commission. "As vacancies occur it will b« easy to find the best qualified people from this list to replace those who resign, thereby giving the people of Iowa even better service than they had in the past with less personnel and less expenditure," Lint said. Miss Iowa The new Miss Iowa, Carol Lynn Fleck, is the daughter of a prominent Democrat attorney, Harold Fleck.

The recognition of a specific cause for an allergic disorder is on the increase. Probably pollen was the first to be so identified. Among others are molds, dandruff from animals, .house dust, certain foods, drugs and a host of substances which can produce allergic reactions when coming in contact with the skin. However, even today all the causes of allergy are not known. In continuous rhinitis and asthma an allergic cause can be found in only about 50-70 out of 100 victims. One wonders what is responsible in the remainder. In many cases of hives also an allergic cause cannot be identified. The treatment of allergies has made progress, in many cases today it is possible to identify and eliminate an allergy • producing substance from food or inhalation. Non-allergenic substitutes for cosmetics, clothes, mattresses and drugs are often available. Desensitization by gradually increasing doses of the responsible allergenic agent is a well-recogriized procedure, This needs improvement,, of course.

For every boy in the world Is a country boy at heart. NEA Service, Inc.) By JAMES MARLOW Associated Press News Analyst WASHINGTON lAV-Sen. Bricker <R-Ohio) — repeatedly failing to limit the President's treaty-making powers—is now making progress in another direction. This time he wants to limit the President 's freedom to hand over American nuclear materials to the newly created International Atomic Energy Agency. President Eisenhower proposed such an agency Dec. 8, 1953. Eisenhower's idea was to develop atomic energy on an international scale for peaceful uses. Nations with nuclear materials, like the United States and Russia, would put some of them into an IAEA pool on which the have-not nations could draw. Eighty nations on both sides of the Iron Curtain, after three years of debate on Eisenhower's proposal, agreed last fall on the form of a treaty to create the IAEA. Senate Approved The Senate approved this treaty June 18 after Bricker failed to get the Senate to say Eisenhower could provide IAEA with no materials without prior consent of Congress. He called the Senate decision not to go along with him "suicidal folly." Two Rhode Island Democrats — Senators Green and Pastore—swung hard at him. Green said Bricker's idea would "play into Russia's hands." Pastore said it would destroy "the very thing the President is trying to do." But this, as will be seen, didn't discourage Bricker. The IAEA would work like this: Before a have-not nation could get nuclear materials it would have to show how and why it would use them; it would need a power plant, or reactor, for using them; it might need to get its STRAIGHT UP .

This might, for some nations, take years. Just getting a power plant built to use the materials would take three to four years. And the United States would not have to hand over materials until the have-not was ready to use them and the inspectors were on the job. Could Refure Since the treaty doesn't say a nation has to hand over materials —but only "may" do so—it would seem this country could refuse in anygiven situation. Although the Senate-approved treaty made this country a member of IAEA, this has no practical meaning until both houses of Congress approve what is called participating legislation. That is: a bill authorizing Eisenhower to appoint American representatives in the IAEA and so on. Drawing up the bill for this is the job of the Joint Congressional Atomic Energy Committee. Bricker is a member of it. On June t9, one day after the Senate approved the treaty but turned down Bricker's proposal, the committee met. It voted 14-2 to accept Bricker's idea and wrote into the bill this provision: Aside from 5,000 kilograms of uranium 235 which Eisenhower already has promised IAEA, any other materials he wants to turn over to the agency must first be approved by Congress. At first the Eisenhower administration protested., but it soft-pedaled its opposition later. Tuesday the committee met again, kept the Bricker proposal in tha bill, and now sends it up to both houses of Congress for approval. |i A tidy fight in House and Senate looks certain.
