EDITORIAL- Note With Care Who Compiles Statistics Many years ago a veteran foreign correspondent, speaking of the Russians he had recently been watching firsthand, said: "If it's documents you want, the Russians will get 'em for you by the carload." His point was that the Russians had come to understand a free democratic society's dependence upon evidence, especially of the written variety, in the making of its decisions. They were only too happy to oblige, by providing manufactured documents in volume. Some of this, unfortunately, goes on within our society itself. But of much greater peril is a subtler practice, which has become painfully common in the public life of this nation. This is the practice of arguing •a case, whether it be on a political issue, on a matter of government policy, in a labor dispute or whatever, from what one sharp observer has called "self-serving statistics." We live in an age that is truly overrun with statisticians, data computers and a host of other information gatherers and analysts. They supply enough material for everybody in the country who wants to argue anything at all. Just pick your topic, pick your side, dip into the huge reservoir of facts and statistics, and you can make out a case. Times Herald, Carroll, la. Monday, Oct. 26, 1959 It's been happening for years in the union-management disputes in steel and other big industries. It goes on all the time in political arguments over the federal budget. Self-serving figures are .dealt out relentlessly by all kinds of organizations and individuals seeking licenses and privileges from government agencies. Pity the poor commissioners who must choose between opposing sets of foolproof statistics, or the arbitrators who seek the truth in the high-flying ammunition fired by management and union. Most of all, pity the poor public, trying to decide where the truth lies so it can weigh issues, policies and men wisely. What we need, obviously, is a Bureau of Selfless Statistics, independent of government, business and labor, drawing upon the resources of all but answering only to the public's crying necessity for balanced, thoroughly honest information.

Russia Not So Sure-Footed; Stumbles About in Mideast BY RAY CROMLEY NEA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON — (NEA) —Ever since the book "The Ugly Ameri can" exposed U.S. bungling in Southeast Asia, the Russians have had a reputation for outsmarting Americans in every neutral coun try from Laos to Iraq and from Egypt to Burma. Now the Russians are out to prove they can outdo the Amer icans even in the art of bungling Just coming to light are a ser ies of Russian foreign aid blunders which may cost the Reds most o the gains they've made in the Mid die East in the past decade. Here's the way American re search men just back from Egypt Iran, Iraq, Syria and Lebanon tel the story: Item — The Russians stepped in when the Egyptian economy was bogging down because Cairo could n't sell its cotton on the already glutted world market. They won acclaim in the Arab world by taking the cotton in exchange foi arms. But then the Russians turnec around — took that same Egyptian cotton — and undersold the Egyp tians in Britain. This Red deal cost Egypt heavily. And the Egyptians haven't forgotten. Item — The Russians won friend in Iraq and the United Arab Republic by supplying them with sizable amounts of modern arms on long-term credit. Now it's turned out that a good chunk of the Russian, military equipment was of poor quality. And there were few spare parts to be had. Result: Large amounts of the Red-supplied military hardware are now unusable. Item — Russian wheat was sent in to aid hungry Middle East peoples. It was an effective counter to American aid. But of late, sizable amounts of the Soviet grain has been spoiled or Wormy when it arrived. Item — Like the United States, (he Soviet Union has sent large numbers of technicians into the Middle East, to "help" modernize these medieval lands. It's been widely reported that the Russian technicians wen: skillfully trained in the languages and customs of the native people. You met a Rus siali, ho was fluent in the local dialect; he knew the history and traditions of the people, or so it was said. Now it's learned that only a handful of the technicians the Russians have sent to the Middle East speak the local languages.

They don't get along with the natives. The Russians have had to pull a sizable number of their men back home because they had gotten into trouble. In a number of places, the technicians have been ordered to stay strictly to themselves, keep away from the natives. And Russian relations with the Middle East are likely to get worse, not better. The Reds are building a large oil pipe line into the Baltic area in preparation for large oil exports. This comes when a world surplus of oil is badly shaking Middle East economies. This latest Russian oil move — already widely reported in the Middle East — is winning the Russians no new friends.

JA& (patent Don't Cheat Children Of Expectation's Value By MRS. MURIEL LAURENCE For three days an acquaintance has been trying to complete a telephone eall to Mrs. H. She wants to ask. "Will yon collect donations to our Hospital Fund from the people on your block'.'" But when she calls, she's scarcely able to identify herself before Mrs. IT. says, "Excuse me — What's that, dear? — Oh. I'm so sorry. T was talking to my little boy. His ball has rolled under the sofa. Could you call me back later?" Rut when the acquaintance calls back, either Mrs. H.'s little boy can't open the front door by himself or his sister must have help in locating her sweater. If Mrs. H.'s outlays of instant attention to her children's wants make them content, nobody would object. They don't. They just make her youngsters more demanding and impatient. Their mother's habit of rushing to give them what they want as soon as they want it has given them the impression that waiting for what they want is dangerous. She's made immediate satisfaction the only kind they can trust. So they clamor for it more and more insistently. Today many children demand our total and instant attention to their wants. They get it not because we want to give it but be- cause we're scared to deny it. We ourselves are so suspicious of future satisfaction that we don't dare inflict the ordeal of waiting for what (hoy want on children. .lust as we can't wait to buy new bedroom furniture until we've saved the money for it, but must possess ourselves of it at once by buying it on the installment plan, children can't wait for ice cream cones or help in locating a sweater. What they want they must have right now. In a world where their parents arc constantly urged to take everything from airplane trips to fur coats on a pay-us-later basis, the young's distrust of future satisfaction is to be expected. But it inakos them into awfully anxious and impatient adults. The truth is. children resent immediate gratification of every demand. They like us to say, "Wait until I've finished what I'm doing." They want to believe in future satisfaction and resent our suggestion that it's not to be counted on. Expectation is one of the hungers of life that give it meaning and promise. When we deny it to children they sense that we are denying them a much deeper satisfaction than the passing one of possessing everything they want the moment they want it.

THE DOCTOR SAYS * Fear of Tumors Goes from Benign to the Ridiculous MAKE fRIENOS Put your return address on every letter. It assures getting the letter back if undelivered. It also provides a ready reference to your address lor your correspondent. j BY HAROLD T. HYMAN, M. D. Written for NEA Service The appearance of a tumor or growth — even mention of the words — puts fear in the hearts of most of us. Quite understandably, we link "tumor" and "growth" with cancer and malignancy. Yet the vast majority of tumorous growths are no threat to life and rarely interfere with health or welfare. Very few indeed are cancerous or become malignant. These few have given a bad name to the entire community of growths. Benign tumors are found on the skin and all the mucous surfaces that line body cavities like the nose or the mouth. They occur also in every hidden organ and tissue of the body. Many benign tumors, like the strawberry mark that you see on the back of a baby's neck, are with us at birth and may board with us all of our lives. They pay no more rent than the birds that nest in our trees. They cost us nothing and, if we pay them no mind, they rarely bother us. Other benign tumors put in an appearance later in life — like the,brown spots, warts and moles that dot the skin of older folks. Sometimes these are called liver spots, but they have no more to do with the liver thSa ^'ilh any other organ of the body. Most of these nubbins are of no importance except to our vanity. They remind us that we're not as young or beautiful as we were once. Some few benign tumors and growths cause trouble, or we think they're causing trouble, which amounts to the same thing. Maybe it's an unsightly, hairy mole that spoils the appearance of a pretty girl. Maybe it's a wart that's in an awkward place so we scratch it and make it bleed when we shave or comb our hair. Maybe it has a long stem that gets twisted, like an ovarian cyst, and causes pain like an attack of j acute appendicitis. ; Maybe it begins to bleed, like a wart in the bladder, and pro- , duces the alarming symptom of' bloody urine. Maybe, like a simple lump in the breast, it's in a location where malignancy occurs and it has to i be taken out for examination un- j der the microscope. Most of the time, the benign or i harmless tumor can be treated according to a principle called "skillful neglect." Your doctor, tells you he'll have it out if you want. If you don't vote for an : operation he'll advise you to watch it and let him see it again if it gets larger, begins to look angry j or bleeds. j But if you're going to worry j about it or it does kick up, it's best to have it cut out. It can then be given the third degree by the pathologist. The operation will hardly bother you. If it does nothing else it will restore your peace of mind.
