Free World Can't Afford Many More Red Triumphs It should be clear to us all that a Communist victory of major proportions now impends in Indochina. Any chance that the French might somehow gain an advantageous truce has gone glimmering. The French assured this result by withdrawing their farces from the southern third of the vital Red River Delta, with 2,500-000 of that area's 8,000,000 population. Seldom has so much been given a foe by default. The Communist triumph at Dien Bien Phu is modest by comparison. The delta area yielded contains the largest towns lost to the Reds in the entire eight-year Avar. In any truce negotiations between the French and the rebel Viet Minn. it had been assumed the French probably would bargain away the Red River region in return for firmer control over southern Viet Nam and other Tndochi- nese provinces of Laos and Cambodia. But by evacuating the richest part of the delta. France would seem to have destroyed its principal bargaining power. This suggests that the Communists will be able to enforce almost any kind of truce they desire. That makes it unlikely that the French will be left with a position that would invite the development within Indochina of a strong defense line to be supported by some possible Southeast Asian alliance of free nations. If any such line is now to be drawn, prospects are that it wil] be outside the soil of Indochina. Just where is another story. Speculation hardly would be profitable at this moment. What is important for all of us in America is to recognize the macrni- tude of the approaching Communist victory. It will be the biggest forward stride for World Communism since the Reds conquered China in 1949. For everyone agrees that Indochina is the key bastion barring the way to all Southeast Asia. Thus the year 1954 will record that another tragedy befell the forces of freedom in the world. Twice before in the 20th century, free men have suffered such tragedies to occurr until they faced the menace of final defeat Then they rose up and smashed the enveloping tyranny. Will they do it that way again? Or will their luck run out this time? There cannot be many more big losses to communism before we shall have to seek answers to these painful questions. •in November. 1939, not longr after tht o^brtftk of WroM War II, ve« in Great Britain all received copies of a little book that quickly became their most treasured possession. The book contained ration coupons. From that date until July fourth of this year, the ration book has been the constant companion of every British family . To us Americans, who felt the pinch or rationing for less than four years and shook off the restriction the moment the war ended, it seems almost incredible that the British have known this irritating control continuously for 15 years. That the British have endured rationing for so long, and especially for nine years beyond the end of war. is high tribute to their courage, to their capacity for self - denial in periods of great national stress. This patience with the intefering hand of government confirms what is best in the British character. Government control too readily becomes a firm habit. It has almost the power of a narcotic. We cannot help but feel that the British people have performed a slightly remarkable feat in casting ration books into the discard after so-long. For Separate Schools More than one thousand colored citizens of Columbia County have petitioned the board of education there to maintain separate white and Negro educational facilities in the proposed school building program. Other Negroes, who did not sign, told the county school superintendent they wish to retain their own culture, ideals and individuality, and desired assistance in retaining separate schools. A similar situation has developed in at least one other Georgia county and will probably come about in others, for colored and white alike are aware that customs and traditions of many de- cadeS cannot be changed overnight merely because the U. S. Supreme Court has put another interpretation on what is to be the law of the land. In these counties, perhaps the mutual understanding between white man and black man and the cooperation effort- to educate the children of both, separately but equally, can be continued. In others, however, self-styled martyrs will force humiliation, suffering and uneasiness upon their children in an attempt to change conditions which a great majority of Negroes are extremely apprehensive about, changing.—Macon iGa.) News. Here's Your Mat—What's Your Hurry?" VIEWS OF OTHERS The Bald Truth Candidates lor Congress who were counting on. being Thespians on television screens this fall have cause to be hopping mad at Richard L. Neuberger, Democratic aindidate for United States senator from Oregon. Mr. Neuberger recently went on television for a campalgne speech with the bald spot on his head unconcealed by paint, the trace of beard on cheeks and chin uncamouflaged. He eveen refused to use a Teleprompter. He was a politician, not an actor, he told his audience. A campaign to decide who should govern the country was not a stage play or a movie. If he fooled voters by stage makeup or by pretending, by means, of a Teleprompter, that he was speaking extemporaneously on complex matters, he could, be suspected of fooling them as to his stand on issues. At a time when campaigning is moving toward ever greater competition with Hollywood, and the "selling" of candidates to the public has become a bonanza for hucksters, Mr. Neuberger is likely to. have a lot of vested interests on his back. Who is he to block progress, to refuse to use the new histronic techniques for campaigning? How can he expect to get anywhere before audiences conditioned to sauve masters of ceremony frenzied pluggers of commercials, omniscent commentators, unctuous demagogues? If he wants to revert to the "plain as an old shoe technique, why doesn't he do a hillbilly routine?

I'm not opposed to gangsters and convicts—if the roles and the plots are good. These are good—that's why I'm playing 'em."

As your next step, you lead the queen of spades, discovering the bad news. Now you cash the king and ace of diamonds, after which you ruff a diamond with one of dummy's low trumps. You return to your hand by way of the king of hearts and lead your last diamond towards the dummy. If West discards, you can ruff with dummy's remaining small trump. It is then easy to cash the I jack of spades and get to your hand with the ace of clubs in order to draw the rest odthe trumps. If West trumps the fourth diamond, you can overruff in dummy and draw trumps with even greater ease. Either way. West cannot defeat the slam contract.

Sometimes a definite disease is responsible. A slight anemia, for example, can and does produce lack of customary energy. Any chronic infection or most an}' dis- urbed bodily function is also likely to produce that tired feeling. Of course, if a definite disease condition can be identified, it can usually be remedied. This is the first step in combatting fatigue. Should nothing be found, then it becomes necessary to analyze and study various other factors. The proper balance between work, recreation and sleep has to be worked out. Change of occupation Is not often recommended because it usually is not possible.
