Editorial- Not Unnatural That We Seek Retreat from Crises Many times nowadays we read or hear that we are in an age of blandness, marked by a lack of action and excitement and by the mildness of people's reactions to' issues and events. There doesn't seem to b« much doubt that it's true. In spite of talk* of the dangers of nuclear fall-out, Russian claims in the intercontinental missile field, Communist gains in the Middle East and some other dis couragements abroad, we are all pretty calm and cool. Nothing having to do with the vital matter of war and peace appears to stir us greatly at this moment. The same evidently holds for things on the domestic front. Civil rights here and there arouses some citizens, but not really a lot. Few seem worried over the mixed trends shown by the economy, for general levels are still very high. Internal communism, once the focus of bitter controversy, is little mentioned. Some who keep hammering about our bland mood plainly believe it is a bad condition for America to be in. They want us to act, to do battle, to generate ex-| citement, to feel deeply about ideas and happenings. There is, of course, no conclusive evidence — nor is there likely to be — that Americans do not feel deeply about the basic things that govern their lives. But quite a few would argue that it is not bad, and may be quite inevitable,' that we should be floating along these days in a kind of neutral gear. We had a steady diet of excite- Tlm« Herald, Carroll, Iowa Saturday, Sept. 1, 1957 ment for more than two decades —the 1929 crash, the Great De pression, World War II, the tur moil of postwar readjustment, the Cold War, the Korean conflict. Is it so odd that people should seek a retreat after that? In our personal lives we know that'we cannot sustain either men tal or emotional peaks indefinitely. It is too taxing. Why should it be different in our group national life? . Americans will be aroused again, when there is need to be. But meantime they are behaving quite normal human beings "Water-Skiing, Bah!

To some liberal citizens and pol iticians, the present mood of the people is infuriating and frustrating. They want action, vigorous programs, conflict, excitement. They might consider that 35, 500,000 Americans may have voted for President Eisenhower in 1956 partly because his first term seemed to promise a second four years of government almost exactly tailored to their mood. In other words, they may have gotten just what they wanted. And who is to say that, in a democracy, that is bad? How About a Rocket to the Moon?

Skip Tracers 1 Tactics Give U.S. Treasury Rough Time than eight days after the. appearance of the first symptoms. There is now a skin test available to determine susceptibility to mumps or to confirm a diagnosis of the disease. Also, a mumps vaccine has been developed, but this is not yet recommended except under special circumstances. Apparently it provides protection against the disease for less than a year. It does not give the same degree of resistance as does the disease itself. However, this may be perfected the future. If it could be used Five Tests of 'Charm' For Our Senior Citizens By PETER EDSON NBA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON — (NEA) - U.S. Secret service has adopted a form letter to answer a flood of inquiries and to warn people against various "skip-tracer" outfits which misrepresent themselves as government agencies. What the skip tracers are actually doing is trying to locate people who may have run out on unpaid bills. This collection agency business has been bothering the U. S. Treasury, Post Office and Federal Trade Commission for years. As FTC Chairman John W. Gwynne put it in one of his recent orders, "The government agrees that debtors should pay their just debts and that creditors should not be denied any lawful means to collect them. But the FTC Act prohibits those practices which have a tendency and a capacity to deceive." The gimmick complained of in this case was a business form headed, "Treasurer's Office. Disbursement Notice." On the card! was a picture of a building which looked very much like the U. S. Treasury building in Washington, with an official-looking seal and an American eagle — wings spread rampant. The form provided blank spaces for filling in correct name, present address and present employer. The card said a sum of money, due the addressee, would be paid If the information was filled in and mailed in a preaddressed envelope to, "Treasurer's Office, Headquarters Building, Washington, D. C." Anyone filling in the card might or might not eventually get a check for ten cents, but this was in effectively for parents never had mumps but posed by their children certainly be a boon. who were it had; ex-!

Q—"I am retired on a small pension and live in a community which is trying to do something for the 'senior citizen.' I have been going to the community center at 5 least once a week and taking part in the group singing and the handcraft projects. I feel like a fool and a fritterer. Yet, I don't know anything better to do with my time and I like to meet people in a friendly way. What else can I do?" -W. J. M. A—There is nothing wrong with going to a community center for elderly people. Stop feeling like a fool and enjoy it if you can. The By DOUGLAS LABSEN NEA Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON - (NEA) - No man. has yet seen the other side of the moon — for our natural satellite keeps the same face turned toward earth. The only way to see the back of the moon is to go there — and man may do this in the next 10 or 20 years. The distance is only aboUt 220,000 miles. The first trip to the moon has enormous significance to the nation's defense. The rapid progress of America's guided missile pro gram has already put space flight in the realm of the probable. Neil McElroy's handling of the missile program will determine just how soon the U.S. masters space flight And the first country able to get to the moon will also have the tools to make the world free or slave. The beginning of space flight will come on the day man places the first "artificial moon" in an orbit 200-300 miles high above earth, some time during the 18- month International Geophysical Year which began July 1. A 250-mile altitude was reached by an Army two-stage rocket as long ago as 1949. Recent reports are that this height has been more than doubled. Such a satellite will fulfill a 25-! year dream of Doctor Wernherj von Braun and his group of space enthusiasts at the Army Ballistic Missile Agency, Huntsville, Ala.— even though they are not directly engaged in the U.S. satellite program. Doctor von Braun, now 45, received his degree of doctor of philosophy in physics at age 22. He has been working on rockets andj space flight since 1930. He envisions the next step after the unmanned satellite as a manned "space platform" 1,075 miles up in the vacuum of outer space. It will travel at 18,000 miles an hour to circle the earth every two hours indefinitely. From such a space platform, I launched in the right direction, every corner of the world would be visible at least once every day. It would therefore provide the ideal "open sky" means of inspecting and enforcing world dis ! armament, and thereby achieving | world peace. i The next step after the first i manned space platform would be a bigger one to use as a base or "way station" to assemble the first interplanetary spaceship. There are answers now in hand or in sight to all problems a "Mo- PROF. WERNHER at hand. VON BRAUN—After 25 years, the moon is del T" spaceship presents. The! planets. This is the frightening only delaying factor would be the amount of money and scientific effort the U.S. decides to invest. An advanced spaceship would blast off years sooner if a way can be found to use atomic fission or hydrogen fusion for propelling power, instead of the chemical energy which rockets use today. The Atomic Energy Commission is already at work on the problem. McElroy will find that the Soviets too are in the "race to space." They have announced plans' to launch their own "artificial moons." And Soviet scientists have indicated that intensive effort is going into space rockets. Animals are used as experimental "space passengers." What will man discover on the far side of the moon, or on the other planets? Perhaps nothing — perhaps treasure-houses of materials and knowledge. A big enough find of uranium would supply power to turn our deserts green and to free mankind entirely from hunger, poverty and servile work. A dividend like this would be rich reward for our rocket research. There is another reason why missilemen are eyeing the other! possibility that Planet Earth win become a "poison planet"— so radioactively "hot" that mankind, no longer able to survive here, will have to turn elsewhere "for his home, perhaps to Mars or Venus. This fatal degree of radioactivity could be brought about by all- out nuclear war. Or it may come short of such war, as a result of nations continuing to test nuclear weapons at the present rate, or increasing it. In this grim eventuality, rocket ships and space travel would assure the survival of manking— -and the money and effort invested now in long-range rockets would be returned many-fold. In any event, one' fact, appears plain: The U. S. cannot afford to lose the race to space any more than it can afford to lose the race for the IRBM and ICBM. This is one ground on which both Army and Air Force missile- men stand together. For both services are dedicated to keeping America strong and safe. Their differences are only in how to go about it.(End of a series.) deal of the hunting in attempting to deliver the mail. Hundreds of complaints from people saying they had not been paid the sums due from what they considered to be a government agency caused the Treasury Department to get j out its form letter reply, saying in part: ' "From your description, it is apparent you have received a communication from a private firm which uses that method to obtain the present location of alleged de-; linquent debtors. The form was not i mailed by the United States Treasury. "The Federal Trade Commission, Washinnton 25, D. C, is pres-j ently conducting an investigation j regarding this activity. If you re- j ceive any more such material, it, is suggested that it be forwarded to the Federal Trade Commission. Very truly yours, (Signed) U. E. Baugh'am, Chief, U. S. Secret Service." Actually, FTC has been trying to clean up the off-color skip tracers for a long time. To the layman it might seem that cases of this kind involved use of the mails to defraud—even though the legitimate purpose is to collect a bad debt. But the Post Office Department says it is precluded from initiating prosecutions in this field by findings in U.

It is inconvenient and somewhat painful. It is not completely harmless since complications in the k i d n e y s, joints, or brain are not unknown. The most feared complication is what is spoken of 86 "going down" or involvement of the sex glands. This is much more .common in men. It does not occur before the age of maturity, which is an argument for having the disease early, Studies have been made on this complication. In general, it seems that it is comparatively unusual. When it does happen, one side only is usually involved. If both testicles are involved, sterility is a possibility, ' It is curious that this virus disease should have such a liking for the salivary glands lying on the sides of the jaws. It is also strange that, though highly contagious, H often attacks the gland on one side only, leaving the other susceptible to mumps later.

Women Often Describe Husbands as 'Big Babies American men would be startled if they knew how often the word "baby" is used by American women to describe their husbands. Over and over in letters to this column wives describe irresponsible, selfish, bullying, and lazy husbands as "big babies." A letter before me, describing a husband who throws a tantrum every time things don't go to suit him, says with final resignation, "Well, at least there will always be aJsaby at our house—father." And it might be well for a man to know that when his wife brands him in her mind as just a "big baby," every bit of respect she ever felt for him is gone fall and winter.
