EDITORIAL- Rockefeller's Hunting Trip Nets Little Game Hearing New York's (Joverno Nelson A. Rockefeller address i meeting of the Inland Daily Pres Association, in Chicago, Tuesday Jeft no doubt iri the minds of th< some 500 newspaper men anc women present that he has presi dential ambitions. And it could al so be agreed Rockefeller is a mos personable young man, and by no means devoid of considerable abil ity. But there was serious doub that his Chicago appearance re suited in any clarion calls being sounded for his services outside the great Empire state. And the reason his reception In Chicago was classed on the cool side is obvious. Vice President Richard Nixon has been growing significantly in stature and ability of recent months and appears now to be a cinch for the Republican nomination for president in 1960. Rockefeller's current excursion to many sections of the country is admittedly undertaken to determine whether or not he can detect any chances for his obtaining (he Republican presidential nomination. With unlimited funds at his disposal, it is not a difficult matter for him to make a personal canvass of the nation and project himself at least for consideration in the GOP convention. His counterpart in the Democratic party, Senator Kennedy, however, is likewise beginning to find perhaps being a rich man is more of a handicap than an asset in the political arena. With the backing of a tremendously rich father along with affluent brothers and sisters, Senator Kennedy has long been in the limelight and considered a favorite for the Democratic nomination. But the picture is changing.

But those who would have been pleased to preside at final rites for the GOP a few months ago now find an unusually robust corpse, principally as a result of the outstanding domestic and foreign leadership abilities of 'President Eisenhower and Vice President Richard Nix o n. Since the former is precluded from seeking a third term, Nixon stands in good stead to take over the helm of the ship of state and continue the present era of peace and prosperity, of which an appreciative electorate is by no means unmindful. No one can be counted out of the race, of course, least of all Governor Rockefeller who as the chief executive of New York state is not without a significant following and important recommendations. He is :o be admired for his interest in politics and concern for good government, demonstrated in a substantial fashion for many years prior to his election in the Empire state. But, so far at least, Rockefeller's interest in the Republican presidential nomination las only served to emphasize the : act the party already has an available man well trained by experience and of proven ability and hat Vice President Nixon is gong to be difficult to outrun for he nomination and election.

These are the heartbreak i n g facts; The United States is not only losing out to the Russians in the space race; we are now falling behind in weapons. And the gap is growing larger — not smaller. This could endanger our chances of survival as a free nation in the decade ahead. The Russians have long had more arms than the United States — and more soldiers. But until recently, the United States had scientific and engineering superiority. Americans could turn out better arms, and make them faster. But many Russian arms are now superior. Worse yet, they're getting better — faster. New reports show that in arms research — the thing that means military superiority 10 years from today — the Soviets are ahead of the United States. Leave aside space launchers and the military values of space. Take, instead, Russian intercontinental ballistic missiles — the ones that Khrushchev has aimed at New York, Dallas, Pittsburgh, Detroit, San Francisco, St. Louis and Minneapolis. The latest intelligence information indicates these missiles — the ones the Reds already have — are more reliable than any the United States will have hi the near future. In war, fewer of them would be duds. More would hit the target. The Soviet ICBM would carry a bigger bomb. New information on Russian research in electronics, guidance systems and metals indicates they will have an even better ICBM within three years . . . one we'll be nowhere near matching by then. There are reports — not yet verified — that the Russians have done considerable work on a 12,000-mile skip-glide bomber which has certain marked advantages over an ICBM. It's almost impossible for radar to pick up for one thing — and somewhat harder to hit. Disregard U.S. government announcements that these Soviet missile and space achievements are "stunts." Russian physical science had a ong 3nd solid history of achievements long before the Reds. The Russians were good in rockets in World War II. A Russian is listed as one of the first atomic pioneers. There is evidence the rapid Russians progress is due to two things: One — a fierce belief in research— and more research. The Russians tend to scoff at the American method of making military missiles or space satellites utilizing what the Reds call only a piddling amount of research. Two — a willingness to take chances on new ideas. The Reds saw the value of an ICBM and an H-bomb before U.S. military men were willing to accept them. The Soviets are now working on radically new ideas of electronic — and ultrasonic — and psychological gas warfare with a concen- By MRS. MURIEL LAWRENCE One day when MrJ. P. was eight years old her little brother knocked a cooling pie off the kitchen window sill. Their mother, disappointed, preoccupied with worries they could not understand grabbed at the culprit so angrily that Mrs. P. cried out, "He didn't mean it! It isn't fair to spank him!" But her mother spanked anyway. Then Mrs. P.'s punishment had begun. For four days her mother refused to have anything to do with her, saying cold things like "Why do you want to kiss me good night if I'm so unfair? , . . How would an unfair mother like me care when you came home to supper? . . . I'm too unfair to tell you where your skates are . . ." Mrs. P. still remembers the pain of those four days. But what she doesn't remember is the conclusion she drew from it. As she wandered, lonely and disgraced through that desolate time, she concluded that difference from a beloved person was an end to relationship with him. She decided that safety was always oneness with him. Because of that unconscious conclusion drawn long ago, her ado- k'scent son is now giving her a difficult time. He dates a girl Mrs. P. doesn't see anything in. Two nights ago he said: "O.K., if you won't ask Pat here to supper, I'll have it with her someplace else!" Then he walked out of the house pnd didn't come home until 2 a.m. Ever since his mother has been sunk in discouragement so deep her family can't pull her out of it. Unfortunately, she believes her suffering is due to "that girl." If you were to tell her that it's due to the suffering she experienced at differing from her mother 37 years ago she'd get very angry. She'd find all kinds of reasons to justify her suffering. For though we can sometimes recall the pain of childhood punishments, we forget the conclusions it led us to. We forget how in our frightened loneliness we decided that all difference from loved people was dangerous—the end to affection. Yet it, is that old conclusion that now makes Mrs. P.'s difference from her boy so bitter. As her mother made difference from her so bitter years ago, so now she must make it bitter for her son.

Now you read of: The high cost of mortgage money. The anticipated decline in home building. Mounting construction costs. What should you do? I put this question to a number of housing experts expecting them to say: "Go tell your reader that if he isn't sitting is his dream house now — when his take-home pay is probably higher than it has ever been arid after a record number of new homes have been built—he has missed the boat." The answer I got, in plainest English, was* "Tell your reader to quit stalling. The longer he waits, the more he will have to spend." There is absolute agreement that housing costs will not come down at any time in the foreseeable future. In the past two years, the Department' of Commerce's construction cost indices show a 13 per cent rise in the price of building a brick house, a 14 per cent rise in the price of constructing a frame home. Skilled construction workers who earned $2.41 an hour in 1949 and $3.24 an hour in 1955 are now getting $3.92 an hour. Unskilled laborers in the building trades who earned $1.45 an hour in 1949 and $2.06 in 1955 are now getting $2.62. Except for soft coal miners, construction workers' average hourly earnings surpass all other workers in manufacturing and the retail trades. There is absolute agreement on boosts the maximum size of FHA loans on one-family houses to $22,500 from $20,000 and eases downpayment requirements o n a house appraised by the FHA at $20,000 would be cut to $1,500 from nearly $2,000. Finally, though interest rates on mortgages are climbing up, up, up, remember this is a tax-deductible item on your federal income tax.

Tell your readers, said one expert, the theory behind making money more expensive to borrow and less available is to discourage spending. In the historical past, in periods of tight money, this is exactly what has happened. Demand for housing is postponed. We expect that this will happen again. Thus it might be more advantageous for you to plunge into that dream house sooner, rather than later. In the months ahead, because of a possible slow-up in demand, you can expect the price of existing homes to remain steady. The new housing bill offers something in your favor too; it BY HAROLD T. HYMAN, M. D. Written for NEA Service "I want to prefer charges against a doctor •— how do I go about it?" So writes an indignant reader. "My husband had a virus, a simple little virus," she writes. "He went to this doctor and asked for a shot of penicillin to get rid of it. "The doctor refused to give it to him without a lot of tests and riga marol. My husband went ^ to an other doctor and got the shot. "Now, I want to know this, is there some agency where we file charges against that first doctor?' This letter is a little more violent than some, but it is typical o) complaints too often made that doctors don't give the patients what the patients think they ought to have. This calls for a little more patience and understanding on the part of those who seek treatment. As to my correspondent quoted above: Madam, you are entirely in error. The duty of your husband's doctor was not to follow your husband's amateur instructions to give him a shot. His duty was to find out what really ailed your husband. In the case you have cited, the shot wouldn't have killed a single tiny virus — so the doctor should have your praise for sticking to his guns even at the cost of losing a patient.

You send for him when there's something you wan done, give him his orders and pa> him when the job's completed t your satisfaction. Patients wit! this viewpoint frequently revea their atittude when they say the> "use" Doctor X or Doctor Y. Patients who "use" their doctor often get the type of medical care you'd expect from the doctor who would let hjmself be used like a hired hand. You tell him you've a virus and he agrees you have a virus because j'ou say so. You ask for a shot of penicillin and he gives a shot of penicillin because you asked for it and you're paying for it. But not because it will do any good. He knows better but people like you may have made him careless. Not so the trained physician who has the proper respect for his profession and a decent regard for medical practice. It may not be good salesmanship or smart merchandising but he'll insist on getting the facts of your illness, deciding what's best to do in accordance with his best judgment and doing what's best for you as best he can. He'll listen to your diagnosis and your recommendations, weigh them together with other information that comes into his possession, and give them the values he thinks they deserve. If you don't approve of this sort of careful professional conduct, you've every right to take your "business" somewhere else. But as to preferring charges against the physician who conducts tiis practice in a manner befitting a doctor of medicine, the indignant reader will get small comfort or encouragement from me. I'd rather have doctor No. 1 come to see me in his secondhand jalopy than have doctor No. 2 pay me a visit in his airconditioned imousine. And I hope the irate lady will nink things over and agree with me.

Trustee of the fund is the Bo*ton Safe Deposit and Trust Co. The bank's president, William W. Wolbach, says Stone long had been a depositor but came to thf; bank rarely and had been in failing health in recent years. It was not a • case of rags to riches, however. Wolbach says h« understood Stone was left several million dollars by his father. Fund officials said most of the money is in "sound common stock." "We honestly didn't really know what Stone did," says Wolhach. "Twenty years ago he walked into our office and said he had decided to give something to charity. We explained how our organization operates to help many charities in the metropolitan area. "He concluded, That's what I'm looking for.'" Money for the various community projects comes from interest on the funds held in trust. Sidney Stone, a cousin, is the only living relative. He says Stone attended Chauncey Hall School but did not go to college. At the turn of the century Albert was in the shoe business as a jobber. He sold the firm in 1910 and joined his grandfather and other relatives in the real estate business. Remember Way.
