Difficult to Understand Senator's Aim THE DRUG INDUSTRY By GEORGE E. SOKOLSKY It is difficult to quite understand what Senator Kefauver is getting at in his investigation of | the drug industry.

"Why aren't they happy to be ordinary? "Happiness is laughter and being everyday and down-to-earth. Now you take this ordinary family, the Kennedys—" and without waiting for (he inevitable chuckling to subside, she's off on a subject close to her heart. "The Kennedys are an example of how an ordinary family could be brought up—even without the money. The potential was there. but the Kennedy children have reached the heights they have because of their early home life. The President's great qualities stem directly from his character- building upbringing. It could serve as a guide for child-rearing today." If anyone knows about the Kennedy's family life it's Luella Hennessey, a RN nurse. She works in a Boston hospital, she soothed 13-year-old Pat Kennedy through an emergency appendectomy. She spent the summer at Hyannis Port and later accompanied the Kennedys to London for two years while the father, Joseph P. Kennedy, was U.S. ambassador. Although she returned to her hometown of Walpole, Mass.. to take charge of the local office of the Visiting Nurse Association, she has never been far from the Kennedy life. At the drop of a safety pin she flies off around the country to take care of the President's wife and sisters and sisters-in-law when they're having babies. Of 19 births so far. she's missed only one—and that was because of a virus. Miss Hennessey won't take pay for her Kennedy work. "Friendship is more important than a few dollars," she says. Over the years the Kennedys have laden her with gifts. : Grocery; :i Head's 'home: 4 Curn- niings home. 1 July 2« — !i:::o Bluff City: 10:45 Bryson's Cafe: 11:45 Cagel's' Ser, vice Station; I::i0 Pleasant Hill.

The day when the doctor scrawls in Latin so that no one can read what he says, not even the pharmacist, is over. We want to know what is it that goes into us. Also there is the advantage of not taking the wrong medicine, the killer instead of the healer. Senator Kefauver. in a previous investigation, gave the impression that he was bringing the underworld to the surface. It was exciting to watch Frank Costello testify before a television camera. When that investigation was all over, the underworld was still in business, as potent as ever, pushing heroin as actively as possible; organized vice continued to compete with private immoral persons: graft in public office became increasingly scientific. Precisely what Senator Kefauver accomplished by his crime investigation is not clear. He dropped the whole business. Now since December 1959, he has been going after the legitimate drug business. He does not claim that any of these companies are engaged in illegal practices. No one is sent to prison as a result of this investigation. Nothing is being done to stop manufacturers from spending millions of dollars for research. It is therefore difficult to discover precisely what the Senator seeks to accomplish. I have gone through the material diligently, seeking to discover why I have to take expensive pills when I feel so good and can do twice as much work as I used to do. The Senatorial committee's reports do not help me at all. In fact, 1 find much of their information to be baby-stuff, uninformative and not very helpful. Of course, drugs are expensive; so are tombstones. Recently vvnen my secretary was dying, all sorts of isotopes were used and I presumed that they cost a lot of money. The total bill was enormous. But if one of the Isotopes could have saved her life, it would have been cheap at any price. Nowhere is so much done for the sick as in this country and it is done mostly by private pharmaceutical companies that spend their money on research and then on promoting the drug. Much of this expenditure may be wasted because the research does not prove out. However, one success may save thousands of human lives and how much is a life worth? Furthermore there is danger in what Senator Kefauver is doing. Patients and their families lose confidence in particular drugs that get front page attention because they are played up at a committee hearing.

William Fulbright, D - Ark., recently sent a lengthy memo to the Defense Department on the subject of military officers' comments on political theories in seminars around the country, a spokesman for Fulbright said Thursday. However, the spokesman said he did not know if there was any connection between the memo and a Defense Department directive instructing military officers to stick to military matters in public talks. The memo, prepared by the staff of Senate Foreign Relations Committee which is headed by Fulbright. was sent to the De- fence Department in the past three weeks. The directive was announced July 11. 1 The Fulbright spokesman said the memo largely consisted of published reports on speeches by military men at "strategy for sun iva!" seminars conducted by the military for general public consumption. Such seminars were held at Lit, tie Rock. Fort Smith and Fayetteville, Ark. A quick bed in this modern room is a sleek sofa by day.

And if someone tells me that the bag of medicines I carry about with me are expensive, I must laugh, particularly when I read circulars advertising graves. I would rather pay for a medicine than a grave any day. So what is the complaint? Apparently Senator Kefauver says that the manufacturer charges too much. Much of the testimony that I have read has to do with faulty arithmetic. This is quite natural and reminds me when I was young in Shanghai. Some of us were interested in making an extra dollar out of China's share of what was known as reparation dyes; very enthusiastic but not sound businessmen. We added a 10 per cent profit to the cost and lost lots of money. We had, of course, failed to include Interest on the money, exchange from one currency to another, shipping, insurance and all sorts of other charges. We subsequently calculated that a 200 per cent mark-up would have By HELEN WORlDEN ERSKINE I welcome letters from readers who speak up.

Output Continued from Page One creased. And about $5 billion of the increase is due to a reversal in business inventory policy. In the first 'three months of the year businessmen were cutting back their stocks at a rate of $4 billion. In the following three months they stopped living off stocks on hand and began building up inventories again at a rale of $1 billion. This made a difference in the GNP of $5 billion. The recovery getting under way this spring added to the national output by an increase in factory production — although some of these goods went into inventories rather than into final consumer sales. Pay scales were rising in some industries. Work weeks were lengthened by many companies. Both added to the total of national income. Government spending is sure to rise. And the Berlin crisis seems likely to add still more to the already increasing outlay for defense. Most business executives are forecasting better days ahead for their own companies. If there are any worries expressed it's over the rising federal deficit might do to monetary inflation, and what wage- price increases might do the cost of living.

Kassem has denied he ever intended to do this and most observers in Baghdad believe him. Second, he could follow a political path and by winning Lhe support of other Arab nations, possibly gaining his objective. Kassem may have felt that somehow he could bring enough pressure against the British to keep thorn on the sidelines. But when British troops were rushed to Kuwait at the ruling, sheik's ing and compassion, i hope you i request, that hope was ended. And any movement of Iraqi :rops into Kuwait now would have, to contend not only with the British but also with Saudi Arabian and possibly other Arab forces. The political road also appears blocked. Kassem picked up support from a few Arab states, notably Morocco and Yemen. But most of the Arab League is back ing Kuwait. During the celebrations last week of the third anniversary o Kassem's revolution, his speeche. brimmed with anger against the British. Most newspapers in Baghdac have hammered away on the Ku wait isteue for the- past three weeks. Baghdad radio several times a clay has told the people about the "imperialist menace" and "the justice of Iraq's claim. Despite the propaganda liar- rage, there seems to be no great enthusiasm in Baghdad about Ku-; wait. Some Baghdadis treat it as a joke. Others shrug and ask, "Well, what have wo lost?" Only a very few believe Kassem will win. But Kassem can ill afford failure. As one trained observer put it, "I would not say it will make his position precarious. It will make it more precarious." Two major factors in Kassem's future are the army and the proverbial man in the street. As long as the army stays with him he is secure and the reaction of tin- man on the street was difficult for the outsider to measure. Barring military action, which he continues to insist he will not take, it would' seem that Kass-cm can only bide his time, keep up the propaganda flood at home and try to make Kuwait a popular domestic grievance. n a way that hurls and communism.
