" Central and South America Should Act Now on Reds If the United States and its Western friends needed any further evidcnct that freedom is in trouble in Guatemala mala, the recent suspension of constitutional guarantees of -civil h'bertiei should supply it. On the flimsy pretext that an emergency of an unidentified aircraft dropping leaflets over Guatamala City, the leftward-leading government has lifted these guarantees for 30 days. And under the Gjiiatamala constitution, this time limit is virtually meaningless, since the suspension is renewable at the government's will. The liberties that now go by the board include the right of assembly, the right to organize political parties, protection against arrest without written order, safeguards against home entry without court authority, and against the examination of private documents without order. In other words, a government widely considered to be Communist in sympathy has now established for itself the conditions of rule by decree. At least temporarily, it has swept away the hampering controls of a constitution design—in theory, anyway—to assure individual freedoms. And this is the government, we must remember, which recentdy received a substantial shipment of arms from Communist Europe. These new developments lend a great point to the fresh urging from Secretary of State Dulles that a special inter-American meeting be convened to study the Communist threat to the Western hemisphere from Guatamala. Dulles properly disparaged effrot by Guatamala officials to represent the current problem as simply one between their country and the United States, over the position of the United Fruit Company in that area. He said the problem of Red infiltration in Guatamala would exist—and would menace the hemisphere—even if United Fruit "gave a godr piece for every banana." Jalks with other American govern- merits are now in progress on the question whether to bring the matter before the 21-nation alliance of American states. V For our vantage point in the north, Guatamala seems to have urgency. It is an actual and potential focal point for Communist activities finning all over tht hemisphere. Itt relative nearneig to the Panama Canal is an evident peril. It stands a- ttwart tht land routi bttwtta tht toa- tinents. In the grip of aggressive Communist, it could quickly become a major sore spot. The march of communism In Asia shows how the Red infection spreads once it gets a foothold. The way to check it is to snuff it out at the source. The countries of Central and South America should take up Dulles' warning and assemble in early convention toward that goal. A National Need Recent legislation In Congress which provided for the authorization and construction of an Air Force Academy perhaps gave added spur to the passage o a resolution by the General Federation of Women's Clubs that a National Academy is not altogether new. Hope comes that some action may be taken on it this time. A growing litt of Influential persons who favor the plan have now added Impetus to it, Already the plan has been called to the attention of President Eisenhower, and influential members of Congress are quitely mulling over the idea. High ranking Democrats in the past administration recommended the plan. A great argument in favor of establishing such an Institution may be found in every report that has treated of treason and betrayal. There exists a, problem that needs to be resolved through education with the result that our civil and foreign service officer* know better what they are supposed to represent and become strengthened In this. Frances Perkins, Secretary of Labor under Franklin D. Roosevelt and later a member of the Civil Service Commission under Truman, once said, "Not one in one hundred of our civil servants in recent years has had the remotest understanding o the Constitution which they swear to uphold and defend when they enter Government service." This was a rather broad statement but it leaves a point to study and rectify.— Portsmouth (Va.) Star. What's A Penny? The alleged story out of Waco, Neb., is about an alleged filling station operator who dropped a penny here and there around his place to see the results. Older folks bent over and picked them up. Youngsters didn't bother—Sometimes they i-ven kicked the coins in disqust. It's easier to believe the reaction than the story. But both are true, the explanation is' simple, youngsters—and we assume that includes those from around seven to thirteen—have been raised in a different atmosphere. A penny-saved-ia-a- penny-earned is no longer written on blackboards. It isn't talked at home. The talk is: "Mighty as well spend it. or the government will get it." And that's a penny? Very little—except those same youngsters will have to pay for the profligacy of the period when they were young. Some day they will go to work and look back in the lusty past to realize why the old folks bent over.—Dallas News Baby Carriages Any politician eager for a bright fact to pit against report* of a rolling; adjustment or recession—select the term you prefer—might take a look at the baby carriage industry. One old new England firm which was proud of a $200,000 sales record in 1939 reports $7,000,000 in sales last year. As a whole, the industry reports a 400 per cent increase in dollar volume since prewar days. And it is not just the economy model which is in demand. De luxe carriages, complete with wire wheels, white-wall tires and two-tone paint jobs, also are selling fast. True, the industry is a little puzzled by the boom, it was counting on a dip now that the relatively small number of depression babies are becoming parents. But there were 4,000,000 babies born in the United States last year, a new record. The carriage people believe the trend is still upward. Architects of apartment houses are now providing baby carriage garages, they say, and smart suburban department stores are going in for baby carriage parking lots.—St Louis Post- Dispatch.

The South will retain segregation . . . there will be no compromise . . . southern people will not give an inch.— Senator Eastland (D., Miss.). * * • Naturally, there are some nice fuys out here (Hollywood), but some of the clucks that go prowling around make a gal wish she'd become a school teacher in Ohio.— Actress Jean peters.

Joseph R. McCarthy's demand that Sen. Stuart Symington step down from the special committee investigating the Cohn-Schlne antics with the Army is merely the latest in a long line of headline-grabbing tactics. The junior senator from Wisconsin has now tangled with every member of the committee except Sen. l^erett M. Dirksen of Illinois, who wants the hearings ended. One of the things Senator McCarthy does best is employ diversions to wreck the proceedings. Let a train of thought get started highballing, headed in a direction that is going to do the McCarthy cause no good and McCarhy is almost sure to switch it off on a sidetrack or sensationally flag it down. The result is that the special committee under Sen. Karl Mundt now has before it a dozen or more major unsubstantiated charges, threats not carried out and general confusion. It has swelled the committee record and strung it out almost endlessly. a principal in the investigation, enator McCarthy let him go, but he was able to use this side issue effect ylas a means to dismissS Ct his own man, Francis Carr. In an effort to discredit the testimony of Maj.-Gen. Miles Reber, on the high-pressuring by Roy Cohn to get Dave Schine an Army they tried to bring in inferences that the general's brother. Samuel Reber, had been forced to resign from the State Department as a security risk. The incident of the now-famous fake 2 I /2-page letter from FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover, on subversion at Fort Monmouth, N. J., is perhaps the most sensational diversionary move which Senator McCarthy has introduced. The senator said the letter had been given him by a young Army intelligence officer. Identity of this officer has not yet been established. The letter's genuineness has been challenged, however. No such letter was ever written, though Senator McCarthy's text does contain exact copies of certain paragraphs from a 15-page, classified FMBI report. [blanket and as yet unsubstantiat- ' ed charge against Secretary of the Army Robert B. Stevens that unknown persons in the Pentagon are using a "fine, not overly experienced Secretary as their tool" to escape being exposed. Dragging the World War n Katyn Forest massacre in Poland into these hearings, Senator McCarthy repeated House committee charges that "there was a pool of pro-Soviet civilian employes and some military and Army intelligence employes who found an explanation for almost everything the Soviet Union did." The first move of this kind came on the day the hearings opened when Senator McCarthy charged the whole case was a plot cooked up under the direction of Assistant Defense Secretary Struve Hensel. To muddy it up further, the senator charged that Mr. Hensel had possibly violated the law in selling ship supplies to the government durinf the war, while he was Undersecretary of the Navy. The committee handled that one by dropping the charges against Mr. Hensel and dismissing him as Senator McCarthy has used this incident to divert the whole hearing into a challenge of the President's authority to withhold from the Congress classified information of the executive departments. Senator McCarthy has declared that "No human . . . will keep m from making . . . public (this) type of information." He excepts only J. Edgar Hoover from this statement. So far the senator has not made public his letter. Senator McCarthy has made a Asking Secretary Stevens if these employes were still there, Senator McCarthy said his committee had heard that some of them transferred to Central Intelligence Agency. By so doing, the senator managed to bring in an- investigation. The senator even tried to bring in Earl Browder's 10-year-old statement that there were 13,000 Communists in the Army during World War II. Chairman Mundt stopped that. When Senator McCarthy didn't like the way the hearings were being run, he threatened to resume his place on the committee. Again Chairman Mundt had to step in and say it couldn't be done. Senator McCarthy's crowning diversion was to declare that he had a list of 130 alleged Communists working in U. S. defense plants. The committee voted to have these names turned over to the Defense Department. And the way was cleared to take this up when the present hearings permit. the Doctor Says— Written for NEA Service By EDWIN P. JORDAN, M.D. Few of us escape the experience of having a severe headache though some certainly suffer much more than others. The only good thing which can be said about a severe headache is that one forgets it almost at once; although I have had my share I cannot remember just exactly when each and every headache occurred nor how long it lasted. There are several kinds of recurring headaches. Some of them/ are brought on by emotional upsets, others are labeled migraine, and In still others additional causes are recognized. It is now felt, however, that most headaches are associated with changes in the circulation of the blood vessels in the brain, though the cause of such changes may differ from one person to another. If the headache* are largely on one side migraine is probable, a condition the origin of which is still somewhat shrouded in obscurity. So far as remedies for migraine are concerned, there are drugs available which often can shorten or bring to halt an attack if they are given at the earliest possible moment. These drugs, however, are powerful, and are not without danger, so they should be taken only under careful supervision. Severe or repeated headaches are often difficult to diagnose. Tht complete history of the attacks, the kind and location of pain, and the preceding symptoms, If any, must be studied. The physician who tries to discover tht oau*« mutt know UM circumstances under which the pain first developed, .whether it came on gradually or suddenly, whether it was constant or irregular, how long it lasted, what part of the head was involved, and similar facts. In addition to this, he must know whether nervous tension was present before the beginning of the headache. A complete physical examination is desirable. The sinuses need to be eliminated as a cause and the eyes also. Special tests may have to be made in order to find out whether the headaches come from local relaxation Of the blood vessels. The treatment of any type of severe headache involves t w o steps. The first is to try to relieve the immediate difficulty a*.' rapidly as possible. Some kinds o.' headaches, especially the so-called "bilious" type, can often be relieved by simple pain-killing drugs, like aspirin. The rhore severe varieties may go on in spite of drug treatment. The second step is to try to identify the cause or at least the physical or emotional factors which tend to bring on the headaches. If this can be done the frequency of the headaches often can be greatly lessened. By OSWALD JACOB? Written for NEA Service Bids Are Very Oft Hard to Criticize Today's hand is bid to the hilt, but it is difficult to see which bid can be criticized.

It's a video point of-jorder. • Crystal gazers are singing the dirge-of-doom for TV private eyes, but Ellery Hueen, a late telefilm starter in th* big whodunit derby, believes there always will be room for one more suspicious blonde, another bloodstain—and one more corpse. Now sleuthing is, as the famous sudden-death expert, former movie profile Hugh Marlowe, says: "Inspite of what everybody says, a mystery plot is one of the few that can be resolved in 26. minutes. You don't need Robert E. Sherwood to write it. I would rather do a 26-minute mystery well than some great classic that would require 50 hours of rehearsal and would fail because it couldn't be crowded into an hour." Cross-examination, anyone?

Latest eye opener on the importance of TV celluloid: Film now takes up between 65 and 70 per cent of all TV time. Even the lease of old feature films has risen to new peaks in recent months. THE GRAPEVINE still insists TV comedy star Paul Gilbert is a seven-time loser in the marriage sweetpstakes but here's Paul on the touchy subject: "Seven wives, that's an exaggeration. Maybe the rumor was started by some comic who doesn't like me. I've been legally married only three times."

She's still a keyboard whiz, but prefers straight emoting. response at the level of three, South cannot close his eyes to the fact that he has two good stoppers in the unbid suit. North's bidding in the unbid suit. North's bidding- practically bags South ot go to the game in no-trump if he can take care of the unbid suit. South has little choice but to comply with this request. In the average game, there wouldn't be much point in complaining about the ambitious bidding. South would make his contract without the slightest difficulty. East would probably win the first trick with the ace of clubs and return the suit. South would win the second round of clubs and knock out the ace of hearts. Even if East held his ace of hearts up, declarer would get back to dummy with a diamond and the defenders would get only two club tricks and he two red aces. East can defeat the game if he hinks carefully after winning the irst trick with the ace of clubs. There is good reason to believe hat dummy's hearts are the 'key o the game contract. East knows hat he can hold up the ace of hearts, but what can he do about destroying dummy's diamond en- ry to the long hearts? s If East sees the problem clear- y in this way, the answer should come very quickly. He must return the jack of diamonds at the second trick This return prevents declarer from bringing in the long hearts, and limits him to three diamonds, one heart and two tricks in each of the black suits. East must be precise about attacking dummy's diamond entry. If East tries to lead the nine of diamonds (instead of the correct lead of the jack, South can win with the ten of diamonds and still save dummy's entry. j This Has Gotta Go Dept.: Those long, blank, screen waits between scenes of some of the live dramatir hours.
