O-O-O O-O-O 0-0-0 America is not immortal and there are today signs in American life of an alarming deterioration in the things of the spirit.— Francis Cardinal Spellman. Editorial Tending The Tree Of Liberty T HE USES OF LIBERTY are never easy to determine and maintain, even in a nation with a long history of freedom. The United States has had freedom for 187 years, and its people are still arguing —often bitterly— afcout how it can best be enjoyed and preserved. The political divisions represented by conservatism and liberalism reflect this continuing controversy. Basically, this spread of view is not only inevitable but healthy. Arguing about what freedom is helps to bolster it, to keep it vibrant. The strains upon liberty are greater today than when this country gained Its Independence. Then the adversary was a distant government in England which, though moving steadily toward a constitutional democracy at home, was cracking down on colonial America with the autocratic power. Today the old notions of an uncomplicated freedom struggle against heavy counterweights. At first, government reached out to regulate against flagrant abuses of liberty. In the Great Depression, it reached out to assist the destitute, the aged, the unemployed, the handicapped. World War IL the Korean War and the cold war brought a massive enlargement of the government's role in American life, with defense and related activities holding sway over a greatly expanded federal budget and biting deep into the economic and political structur. Nearly all these enlargements have occurred in a brief 30 years, less than a sixth of the country's history as a free land. Small wonder, then, that millions of Americans shape a mood of protest against the steady encroachments. With the nation growing ever more populous and its problems mounting, the prospect clearly is for more of the same. No American genuinely wedded to liberty can wish to yield an inch of it casually. Conservatism which acts as a brake and corrective against any cavalier abandonment of freedom serves all free men well. Conservatism moves toward unreality only when, at its fringes, it calls for such sharp reversals as would leave great problems not only unsolved but largely untouched. Liberalism is similarly unreal when it calls for an end—by the day after tomorrow—of the struggles against poverty and for peace. Congress cannot appropriate enough money to bring on the millennium. Our incredibly difficult task, now and for perhaps decades to come, is to find the sane, plausible course that will hold the great substance of our liberties while giving us some solid hope of effective assault upon our baffling array of problems.

Steamship (*) 30 Suffix Diet Control Is Vital In Combating Diabetes By Wayne G. Brandstadt, O. D. Newspaper Enterprise Diabetes, like the motor car, is here to stay. This is because it is definitely an inherited disease. The number of persons who are capable of passing it on to their offspring is increasing. The underlying cause is a deficiency in the ability of the pancreas to manufacture a sufficient amount of insulin. This is the hormone that enables the tissues, especially muscles, to transform the glucose in the blood into energy. When insulin is lacking, the level of glucose in the blood rises. When it exceeds a certain level it is eliminated in the urine. Thus the carbohydrates and sugars in the diet are wasted and the muscles, deprived of nourishment, become weak. High blood-sugar levels favor an increase in the acidity of the blood (acidosis). This acts as a poison and may result in a diabetic coma. Obese persons run a greater risk of developing diabetes than slender persons. Often all that is necessary lo control a mild diabetes in an obese person is to bring his weight clown. In any diabetic a strict dietary control is important because an increase in calories from any source will cause an increase in the blood sugar. If diet alone will nol control the disease, a diabetic must take either insulin or one of the drugs such as tolbutamide that lowers the blood sugar level. Tolbutamide can be taken by mouth but it is not effective in all diabetics. The number of calories in the diet is adjusted to the individual needs of a diabetic and the amount of either type of drug is carefully balanced. The reason the diabetic should not increase his desserts and then make a corresponding increase in his medicine is that this will cause him to gain weight again and make his diabetes harder to control. Diabetics frequently are warned not to sit with their legs crossed because this impedes the circulation in one leg and anything that impedes the circulation also invites gangrene. Other complications include degenrative changes in the retina, kidneys and arteries of the heart and brain. troops from the borders of disputed Trieste.

The other elections were in Manchester's Opcnshaw district, where Charles Morris was defending a safe Labor seat against Conservative and Communist opponents, and Woodbridge, on the Suffolk coast. There farmer Keith Mason was fighting to hold a Conservative seat that could swing to Labor. grants and 180 children sailed for South Africa Wednesday night aboard the 25,500-ton liner Empress of Britain.
