Since the public is often quick to assail a politician who falls well below advance estimates of his performance, in fairness, the citizenry ought to give There are at least a couple of cases like this which are currently in evidence, one involves Gov. William Stratton, Illinois Republican, and the other Vice President Nixon. Stratton is the slim young fellow •who followed in Adlai Stevenson's foot- Steps. A good many Illinoisans, including Republicans who had voted for Stevenson in 1948, expected very little of the new governor. The uncomplimentary word "hack" was often used in describing him. But Stratton has confused them all by acting very much like a strong governor. He has weilded the veto power like a professional, has thrown his office door open to ordinary citizens and has given other signs that he is nobody's pushover. Nixon ascended to the vice presidency under something less than idaal conditions. Though he had made TV appearances to explain the "Nixon fund" which was revealed during the 1952 campaign, many Americans still thought he had at least proved unwise. People worried about his judgement in the event accident should elevate him to the White House. No one can fairly say yet that Nixon has since shown himself presidential caliber. But it is certainly true that lie has labored hard and long to make himself a responsible statesman—to equip himself for greater duty if it should come. The credit, to be sure, Is not wholly his. President Eisenhower understands the necessity for grooming Nixon. But Nixon from the start plunged in to make something not only of himself, but of his job. This last is important. Not only has he grown, but he has expanded the role of vice president from a doodling presiding officer over the Senate to a genuine policy maker. Nixon knows what is going on, and he has demonstrated on his current Asiatic tour that he can be trusted to discuss this government's most delicate policies with the heads of other states. Moreover, he has shown a remarkable capacity for representing democracy to those who do not have it or do not understand it. The simplicity and directness of his approach to the ordinary Asiatic is perhaps the most striking feature of his tour. He lias made the standard "political" handshake a thing of new force and power wherever he has gone. The way we Americans choose candidates for office is haphazard at best. We should b« thankful when the acciden- tal process by which we select vice presidential nominees out so well. Gratifying Move Kree cuumnes must be grateful that Britain and Iran have renewed diplomatic relations after a 14-month apostate lapse. The move can only be taken as an earnest attempt on both sides to ease tension in one of the most troubled areas of the world. Naturally, the hope of the West is that this step will be followed in due course by a just settlement of the oil dispute which led to the break in the first place. Iran and its resources belong on the western side and it would be great folly if it were allowed to fall to the Communists. Views of Others Would We Recognize Russia Today? When President Roosevelt led the United States Into the tragic recognition of the Communist regime in Russia 20 years ago, the Russians solemnly promised they would not intefere in our affairs. This is what Red foreign Misnister Maxim Litvinow said as official representative of Russia: "It will be the fixed policy of the government of The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics: To respect scruplously the Indisputable right of the United States to order its own life within its own juris diction in Its own way and to refrain from Inteferlng In any manner In the internal affairs of the United States. "To refrain and to restrain all persons In government service and all organizations of the government or under its direct or indirect control, Including organizations in recipt of any financial assistance from it, from any overt or covert act liable in any way whatsoever to injure the tranqulll- ty, prosperity, order or security of the whole or any part of the United States. "Not to permit the formation or residence on its territory of nny organization or group which has as an aim the overthrow or preparation for the overthrow, or Ihe bringing about by force of ft change in the political or social order of the whole or any part of the united States, It* territories or possessions." That, was one of the biggest, diplomatic lies In history. As soon as Ihe Russian recognition had been pushed through by President Roosevelt, the floodgate opened to an Influx of Communist agents determined, in violation of Russia's agreement, today the foundation for the destruction of our country- Russians conspired to steal American secrets, to subvert American policies, to sabotage American research and production, to stir up hatred, to foment discontent. In every way possible, the Russians, in the face of their agreement, violated It. Now—When we are supposed to be tightening ranks In the fight against Communism— w« should break off diplomatic relations with Kussla for violation of the agreement which was required when recognition was granted. Would we have recognized Russia, even In 1933. if the Communists had told us they would send their spies against us and conspire for the downfall of the united States? Of course not. Why, then, should we continue diplomatic relations when it has been abundantly proved that the. Communists are guilty of the international criminality which would have prevented recognition in the first place.—Chattanooga News-Free Press. -imited Humility As Defense Secretary Charles Wilson told it to Washington reporters, he and Mr. Arthur Godfrey "were a draw" on their deer-hunting expedition to Michigan earlier in the week. Neither, he explained, got a deer. But that's not. the way the radio-television star told it to the Nashville press when he stopped over here briefly one day later. "1 got one buck and missed five of 'em," he said at Berry Field. "The secretary didn't even see one." Among hunters, it, woulri ?cem, even humility has its limits.—Nashville Tennesscan.

Not much liberating has been accomplished thus far, however, and there Is considerable opinion— particularly in Europe — that communism won't be pushed back, even by a hot war that nobody wants. Statesmen who consider themselves realists are now saying that coexistence should be recognized as a fact of life. Soviet Russia isn't Jody Lawrance and the -Holly- basis during any given phase of ?0 ing to push the United States history. Under this definition, coexistence could be nothing more than another, milder name for continuing the cold war, from the American point of view. The American Interpolation has been that coexistence implied a permanent division of the world into Communist and non - Corn- around and vice versa. Likewise, neither side is winning the cold war. Diplomatic effort should therefore be directed towards finding means by which the two sides can Hve together with a minimum of conflict, if not in peace. The Russians are still counting capitalistic depression and apart, the Russians may have felt that eastern Germany would fall into their hands. They are brought sharply up against the reality of this mistake, however, by the results of the west German elections and the riots in East Berlin.

JORDAN, M.D. Pleurisy probably should not he classified among the common diseases of mankind, but it is not exactly rare either, nnd no one. who has ever suffered from pleurisy can ever forget it. The name comes from "pleura" which is a tissue lining the lungs. The pleura lies not only between the chest wall and the lungs, hut also extends between the lobes of the lungs. It is inflammation o£ this lining and the symptoms which are caused thereby which is called pleurisy. Acute pleurisy begins with R great deal of pain. Pain may be felt anywhere around the chest hut is most common in front and low down. A dry and painful couch is common. In addition a deep breath also makes the pain worse. Fever is likely to be present. When the doctor listens over the painful area with his stethescope, he can usually hear the rubbing sound made by the inflamed pleura underneath. When this rub is present the diagnosis is eslab* lished. An X-ray also often helps to make the diagnosis. The treatment is difficult. The underlying cause must be searched out and treated if possible. Bed rest during this acute •stage is essential. Hot or cold applications and pain-killing drugs may be needed to brine; some relief. One form of treatment is to strap the painful side with a wide piece of adhesive tape which prevents some of the chest movements Which produce the distress. Fluid May Collect Fluid quite often accumulates m the space between the, pleura and the chest wall. This is another difficult condition, but may be loss painful than tho dry variety. Usually the fluid oan be diiuvn mil through a needle. If not caused by tuberculosis, this may be sutficiMU to bring relief after two or throe treatments. pleurisy with accumulation of fluid. Either of these may start gradually or can follow an acute attack. The chronic or dry pleurisy may drag on for weeks or months and be accompanied by a good deal of pain. If it lasts too long, the King itself may be injured. • JACOBY ON BRIDGE By OSWALD JACOBT Written for NEA Service Holdup Play Useful In Some Instances '!The holdup is less useful at suit contracts than nt no-trump," says Alfred Sheinwold in his "Second Book of Bridge," a neu' book on the play of the cards for beginners. However, he then shows a hand in which the holdup play leads to success. "West opens the five of hearts." he writes, in describing the hand shown today, "nnd you count your losers: none in trumps, two in hearts, one In diamonds, nnd per- ncsse succeeds, you will have no trouble, for you will then lose only Ihe two hearts and a diamond. You must provide, if you can, for the loss of the club finesse. "Your best chance Is to hold up the ace of hearts in the hope that you can cut the communications between the two opponents. Your aim is lo restrict the loss to only one heart trick. "Hnvin.? made your plan, you play a l° w heart from Ihc dummy. Bast puts up the king, nnd you play low. Enst continues with _lhe jack of henrts, and this lime you win the trick. There would be no point since holding then you up any longer, would lose two of hearts you next proceed to drew trumps. West discards a low heart on the second round trumps, so you know that Enst holds four of the five missing trumps. You proceed to drnw all four of them, discarding a low heart from dummy on the last. 75 Years Ago In Blytheyille — "You are now ready to try the club finesse.
