EDITORIAL- America Has Stake In British Election Viewed from these shores, the spectacle of both Tory and Labor party leaders claiming credit for the Eisenhower - Khrushchev exchange has its amusing side. It's a little like the scramble in United States elections over who's responsible for prosperity. This does not. mean, of course, that British voters will not in fact credit, one party or the other for this development when they troop to the polls Oct. 8. Latest reports seem lo suggest that the incumbent Conservatives under Prime Minister Macmillan may be the beneficiaries of the voters' decision on Uiis point. The feeling is that this may be particularly so if it becomes clearer before the election that an early summit meeting is in prospect. The. outlook for it is high now, with Khrushchev showing some signs of pood faith. And Macmillan is one who has called for the meeting steadily. None of this can now be taken to mean that the Conservatives are a sure thing in this election. A few weeks ago they appeared almost unbeatable. The odds would still seem to favor them, but they have lessened materially. Dispatches from abroad indicate that at least part of the Tories' difficulty stems from the uninspired character of their campaign. It has thus far been a plodding effair devoid of excitement, a sort of "don't rock the boat" business that has left many voters cold. Macmillan and his colleagues might well remember the ill-fated Times Herald, Carroll, la. Wednesday, Oct. 7, 1959 Thomas E. Dewey campaign ol H)48, which was fought on similar "safe" lines. By contrast, the Laborites under Hugh Gaitskell have been burning up the road, stirring excitement, getting attention, sounding like hu man beings instead of stuffy poli ticians. Polls of recent date indicate this has paid off. The two parties have little daylight between them as the big day nears. Americans would like to say the result is a matter of purely British concern. It is hard not to be aroused, however, when the effect of a Laborite victory would be to elevate the mercurial anti-Ameri can, Aneurin Bevan, to the vital post of foreign secretary. This is a job made still more important by the increasing tempo of East-West exchanges. It would not be easy to work side by side with a man who has tried to aggrandize himself politically by shouting at Americans. Thoughts The mountains saw thee, and writhed; the raging waters swept on; the deep gave forth its voice, it lifted its hands on high. — Habakkuk 3:10. The Divine mind is as visible in its full energy of operation on every lowly bank and mouldering stone as in the lifting of the pillars of heaven, and settling the foundation of the earth. — John Ruskin. Here's Wheat Winnowed From Conference Chaff By PETER EDSON NEA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON - (NEA) - Now begins "the new spirit of Washington." Peace, it's going to be wonderful. Nikita Khrushchev came m like a lion and went out like a lamb. But to infer that it was a changed man from Moscow who came, saw and jdid not conquer would be wrong. When he left, he was still the same old lion, but he was wearing lamb's wool, which he tried to pull over the eyes. To mix another metaphor on him, when he arrived he had a chip on his shoulder, and he bragged that he could lick anybody in the house. Nobody was convinced. When he departed - with his soapbox speech lo convince himself and his people back home that he still believed Communism was the best way of life - was tired and meek. Effusively polite, but still spouting his shop worn slogans for improved friendly relations with the United States and everybody else: An end to the cold war, general nnd complete disarmament, world peace. Who did he seii° Probably no one not already a Communist. But "the new spirit of Washington" he tried to create replaces the four- year-old "new spirit of Geneva." It's still almost impossible lo tell them apart. After the Big Four summit meeting of July, 1055, world tensions were supposed to be greatly relieved. The questions ot disarmament, Germany and improvement of East-west contacts were bucked by the four heads ol government to their foreign ministers. . They were told to meet in October and solve I horn. They met in October and did not. solve them. Things wore right where they had been before. That is about when' the Gettysburg communique leaves things after the Eisenhower-Khrushchev talks. Negotiations are to be resumed on Germany . . . an increase in cultunil exchanges hot ween the United States and I'.S.S.R. will be reached in HIP future . . . "Hie question of general disarmament is the most important one facing the world today." At the l!). r >5 Geneva conlcrence, President Eisenhower nroposcd to the Russians a full "exchange of blueprints" on military forces and "open-skies" inspection.

The Russians didn'l buy it. This year before the United Nations, Chairman Khrushchev unveiled his plan for "general and complete disarmament." Nobody is buying thai, either. Apparently, not even Khrushchev expected to make a sale, for he proposed in the next breath an alternalive, limiled disarmament plan. The "new spirit, of Geneva" lasted about seven months. In January. 1,955, Marshal Bulganin, then chairman of the Soviet council of ministers, proposed a 20-year bilateral friendship treaty with the United States. President Eisenhower promptly turned it down on the ground that it was unnecessary under the U. N. Charter. The President goes to Moscow, if he ever does — that will tell whether "the new spirit of Washington" is worth a hill of beans. There are two straws of hope to grasp at. One: In the final Eisenhower-Khrushchev communique, the declaralion in Ihe nexl-lo-lasl sentence that the two lead ers "agreed that all outstanding inler- nalional questions should be settled, nol by the application of force, but by peaceful negotiations." The second: President. Eisenhower's statement to his press conference that the impasse over Berlin was broken, and that no party to the Berlin situlation was now under any sort of threat or duress. If that can be taken as a first step toward the renunciation of war, it is Ihe one conslructive thing to come from these talks. But deeds will count — not the words.

'BE /NSUCH A HURRY-.,,., JUST STARTED ON THE POND/" Before Criticizing Adults Feel Out Your Sentiments By MRS. MURIEL LAWRENCE Last weekend Sue's Uncle .Tack and new Aunt Helen visited, sharing her bathroom that, adjoined their guest room. By Sunday morning Sue felt bitterly critical of Aunt Helen. Seeking out her mother, she whispered fiercely, "She's just mean! She keeps moving my washcloth off my rack to stick her own on it. She pins all her wet underwear to my shower curtain and I can't find my toothpaste because she's put all that goo she uses on her face on my glass shelf!" Preparing an omelet for brunch, her mother whispered back, "I know. She leaves me to make the beds too. But maybe instead of being mean, she just doesn't think about what she's doing. Let's wait and see . . ." The tension of resentment left Susan. With this support of her realistic judgment of Aunt Helen's thoughtlessness, the strain of pretending she didn't mind it disappeared. Later, she was able to say quite politely to Aunt Helen, "Will you please tell me what you did with my toothpaste?" Sometimes parents feel obliged to say, "Hush — that's not nice.", when children criticize other grownups. They hastily stifle the i criticism as though the Aunt Hel- ! rns of the world had to be permit- tod to rlo as they pleased like the sacred rows of India. Their feeling seems to he that if a rhild is ; once allowed to pass judgment on an adult, the "revolution" has started and their own heads may he the next ones to fall. This makes courtesy to grownups like Aunt Helen harder than it need he. We can all he decently polite to an offensive person if we are allowed to feel our resentment of him. The trouble starts when we have to resist our feeling. Then we have to manage, not only our resentment hut fear of exposing it The fear begins to act as a dam, forcing our dislike to pile up behind it exactly as a real dam ol concrete will force a river to pile up its water behind it. So blocked, our resentment can then become a force as destructive to ourselves as the person who aroused it. If we want decent courtesy from children lo misbehaving adulls, our "Hush — lhat's not nice won't get it for us. We can't expect Sue to accept criticism of her misbehavior if we condone Aunt Helen's. Thai's how lo slart "revolutions," not avcrl them. Sure Sign of Growing Up: If Child's Hard to Live With "Are all girls of 15 almost impos- j sible to live with?" asks an ex-; asperated mother. j She goes on to say, "Julie was always such a sweet child. But for the past few months she has certainly been hard to live with. "You wouldn't believe the amount of disdain she can get into two words, 'Oh, Mother!' And those are the two words I hear no matter how helpful I am trying to be. "I can't even buy a dress to suit her any more. She has also become very critical of the way I look, the way I treat her friends, and so on. Do you have any idea of what has brought on this sudden antagonism?" Adolescence, I suspect. Julie is tired of being a nice, obedient, admiring child and is striking out at you in an effort to assert her own individuality. If you can grin and bear it for & little while, the phase will pass. Many girls go through a stage like this, when they aren't yet old enough for as much independence as they want, but are tired of al ways having to honor the assump tion that mother knows best. If you can kid her along a lit tie, it. might help to make her see her behavior for what it is. When she is being high and mighty with you try saying, "Yes, Duchess," or "Whatever you say, Princess," and see if she doesn't suddenly realize how out of character she is behaving. But if you can't kid, at least don't squabble or show hurt feel ings. Just lake things calmly and quietly. One more thing: Don't, effer any more reminders and advice than absolutely necessary. In her frame of mind, she'll feel that you are treating her like a child. Stand by important issues, but try to let the small ones slide for a while. And don't think you're alone. Many mothers of 15-year- olds are going through the same deflating experience that you are (All Rights Reserved, NEA Service. Inc.) * THE .DOCTOR SAYS Fear is a Useful Emotion But Beware Those Phobias HAROLD THOMAS HYMAN, M.D. Written for NEA Service I've never forgotten the little informal speech the dean of the medical school made when he welcomed our class. "Some of you boys," he said "are going to develop the symptoms of every disease you hear about or read about except maybe the morning sickness of pregnancy. I think I ought lo warn you it'll do you no good and maybe jlow you up enough so you'll get yourselves flunked out." Maybe the good dean's advice applies also to some readers of this and other medical columns. May- ,ie some of you are so busy finding out about your ailments you haven't time or energy to enjoy your good health. Every writer of a medical column wants desperately to help jach reader to a better undersland- .ng of the wonders of the human body. He tries to suggest measures that will help to preserve the icalth of your body. He tries lo indicate the early signs of Irouble hat will lead you to consull your own doctor when treatment holds greatest promise. The purpose of the medical writer may be defeated by those read- 3i-s who picked up every symptom .hey read and who live in constant 'car of the diseases that are des- iribed. Now fear can be a very useful (motion if it leads to direct action. You have to use fear to .each children not to play with matches, cross streets without, look- ng in all directions or pull the dog's tail. But you carefully avoid making .hem so panicky that they run away every time you light a fire n the fireplace, take them market- ng or bring a pet pup in the louse. In the same way, we medical writers try to give you a useful amount of anxiety. If we give you — or you give yourself — a panic reaction, the whole purpose of our efforts is de- 'eated. We want you to be on the lookout for the early signs of cancer or heart trouble but we don't want o give you a "cancerophobia" or a "cardiophobia." We want to keep you informed but we don't want to make you so neurotic you haven't time or en- •rgy to do your housework or go jut and look for a job. And we certainly don't want to make, you so tearful you drive your family halt' out of their minds svitn all your warnings, precautions and predictions of calamity. Somewhere you have to draw the line between constructive anxiety and destructive fear. The elder Oliver Wendell Holmes once told his students: "It's the cranks that make the wheels go "round." And Franklin Roosevelt once told us: "We've nothing to fear but fear itself." For Western Fans sT^-^Sa \Vm the devotion of a young western fan with a horse picture, pillow, or trim on clothes.
