'resident Maps Program Fd Fill Campaign Pledges In American presidential history there probably has been little to compare with the intensive conferences recently concluded between President Eisenhower and top congressional leaders. From the start of his term, Mr. Eisenhower has blazed a new path in his dealings with congress. He 'hald an exhaustive series of luncheons which brought every member of the House \ and senate to the White House. He gave leaders ample notice of each important move. He repeatedly declarer! his respect for the independent powers of Congress. Now he brought key men from Capitol Hill to the White House for a , thorough survey of the proposals the ! Republican administration is to present to Congress next year. In this maneuver is the same deference the President has shown Congress throughout 1953, the same willingness to hear other viewpoints, the same readiness to compose differences in the interest of a united party front. Yet it would be a mistake to read three-day conference as a sign that he is simply tossing the ball to Congress on 1954 legislative issues. The evidence is to the contrary. In the first place, the President took the initiative in calling the conference. He attended every session throughout the strenuous three-day period. And he took command of the publicity given out from the secret meetings. This behavior fits with other recent marks of stronger presidential leadership. Mr. Eisenhower may well have learned by now the death of Senator Taft he has no reliable spokesman on the Hill. He is acting like a man who understands he may have to use all the power and prestige of his high office to jwin Congressional approval of his prb- (?ram. <ji Some of the President's party critics v :hide him on the ground he has done too cattle so far to make good on campaign pledges. But Mr. Eisenhower's conference-time emphasis on living up to the 1952 GOP platform shows he is keenly aware pf party promises. His coming proposals are geared to the platform. Mr. Eisenhower sees that document |as a board instrument of guidance which, if followed, will give the Republicans strong appeal at the polls in 1954. He is frank to say that if the program it envisages for the good of the nation is not idopted, then his party will not deser- 'e to win. The President's party opponents ften think in more limited terms when hey speak of campaign promises— ledges to cut taxes, balance the budget, hop spending, etc. The 1954 session of the 83rd Cong- r«M will be the testing ground of these two interpretations of Republican purpose. Which one triumphs will have great impact not alone on next year's elections but on the presidential battle of 1956. Block Crepe for 'Piltdown' In museums all over the world, black crepe must now be draped over the 300- odd replicas of the skull of "Piltdown m»n," long viewed as a key link in the development of humans from the man like '•pea. Since 1911, when this skull, a jawbone »nd a tooth were "discovered" in England, scientist have believed they represented remains of a man who lived about 500,000 years ago. Now, it seems, the whole thing was a gigantic hoax perpretated by a man well skilled in faking anthropoligical remains. A scientist at the Natural History Museum in Britain discovered the fraud while drilling into the jawbone. It gave off an odor of burning from the drilling, which it should not have were it a true fossil. The bone is that of an ape more than 50 years old. An unhappy story, but there'll be no crepe over the doors of anthropology text book publishers, who will now do a bonanza business in revisions. Views of Others In The Lap of The Court We have an idea that when the United state* Supreme Court renders a decision next summer on the matter of racial segregation in the public schools, the ruling will be the same as that handed down by a previous Supreme Court. "Equal but separate facilities." That, we believe, is what the majority of all people In the Southern states desire. The section of the 14th constitutional amendment on which the cases brought before the Supreme Court to end public school segregation wa« based could possibly have a number of different interpretations. Ill case you haven't read it, this is what it says: "No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunity of citizens of the United States, nor shall any state deprive any person ot life, liberty or property without due process of law, nor deny to any person within Us Jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws." If the Supreme Court can find in that section anything that makes non-segregation mandatory, then its members must have vivid Imaginations. Many states, particularly in the South, have not provided equal facilities In education for white and Negro students. Today, however, all the states are working stcnrilly toward such an ultimate goal. And It will be achieved — in schools, in recreation. In cultural opportunities. When that goal )> achieved—and Is should and must be—It is our opinion that an ideal situation will have been created. We await the decision of the .Supreme Court with Intcrcat. And we think wjFlffibw what it'a going to be.—Gastonlan (N. C.) Oaiette. It Makes Us Weak If you are a person who likes to celebrate or observe all kinds of special weeks an dnya, you you should get a copy of a booklet published by the United states Chamber of Commerce listing special days, weeks and months. If you would try to celebrate everything listed in It you would have to at least a 40-houd day and » ten-day week. For Instance, Jan. 15-23 next year will be National Anniversary of the Tea Bag Week. Another little gem in the same month la Large Size Week, Whatever that means. Here ar seome of the other special observances coming up—National Kraut and Frankfurters Week. One Dish Meals With Cheese Month, Irish Linen Week. National Cotttge Cheese-Cling Peach Salad Time, Let's Go fishing Week, National Pickle Week, Expectant Fathers Day, Save the Horse Week. Cleaner Air Week, Honey For Breakfast Week, National Noise Abatment Week and National Accordian Week. There are more, but one we like is National Leave Us Alone week.—Mattoon (III.) Journal-Qatette. SO THEY SAY I am certain he (President Eisenhower) will be offered the nomination. And I am pretty sure he will take it. I've never seen a President yet who didn't want a second term in office. —House Speaker Martin. # * * I Believe that (the Communists) for reasons of their own really want the convening of the political conference.—American Envoy Arthur Dean. » * * The only way the President can get a dynamic program through Congress Is to have "teamwork" within the OOP.—Sen H. A. Smith (R., WIs.). * * * The robot (rockets, missels, etc.), with all its push buttons and Hashing lights, Is no substitute for the well-trained, hard working air crews and maintenance men.—Lt.-Gen. Laurence Kuter. * « » It is our responsibility to provide youth (on battle fronts) with the understanding we think we inherited from our forefathers, our traditions.— President Elsenhower. * + • We arc getting to the place where some people lable subversives all the reforms they do not believe in.-Methodlst Bishop Oxntm. All God's Chillun— Pettr Cdson's Washington Column— President Needs Real Support In Struggle with GOP Factions WASHINGTON —(NBA) — Har assed from within his' own party and from without by political op ponents at home and drtics of his foreign policies abroad, President Elsenhower In the next 30 days faces the most trying peri- iod of his administration. This Is month in which Peter Edson h 1 s legislative irogram is being prepared for Con- ress. It includes his all - important nidget and tax program lor . the next fiscal year. In this period the President needs all the help and support that he can get. It Is generally conceded in Washington that he is not getting It. In spite of Sen. Joseph McCarthy's assertion, "I am not challenging President Elsenhower's party leadership, he did just thnt. By "urging" Americans to write or wire the President, after both the President and Secretary ol State John Foster Dulles had made formal statements In defense of the administration foreign policy, McCarthy gave a direct challenge. The fine point that Senator McCarthy asked people to write or wire the President on only the question of allowing America's allies to trade with Communist China will be missed by most people. McCarthy, in his broadcast reply to President Truman, declared, ". . . we can blockade the coast of Communist China." Such a blockade Is regarded by most in ternationai lawyers as an act of war, To make war on Communist China, possibly precipitating a third world war, Is a step the Eisenhower administration has not been willing to take. So a challenge 'o the entire foreign policy is at stake In the senator's stand on the one issue. It seemed that the • President looked more disturbed than at any .ime in the past year when he aced his Dec. 2 press conference. That was when he rend the statement repeating his belief that the Communist clean - out in government would no longer be an issue n 1954 and defending his fore'jn lollcy. The bounce, the sparkle in Us eye and the big grin were somehow missing. The President hnd just returned rom his Thanksgiving holiday in Jeorgia. Bu( he was not refreshed. ie had had n couple of tough days of preparation, lor he knew not what would happen at the Bermuda ionforence. The McCarthy revolt lad not made his lot easier. He lad been hurt. For a man accus- tomed to giving the orders and having them obeyed, this was something new. A President of the United States is supposed to have, an alligator's hide. A thin - skinned man has no business occupying the office, f he can't take criticism, even unwarranted abuse, he is temperamentally unfit for politics. What President Eisenhower Is being forced to take, however, is more in the nature of a stab in the back from his own party. Cai'thyism. A little group of isolationists under the leadership of former Congressman Hamilton Fish of New York is actively organizing to buck the President's program of international cooperation with non - Communist na tions. Another group, old - guard Cns,-n rpgsse ovesiRicbu epan -il pared to fight the President not only on foreign policy, but also on is domestic program. Now that the President has the Bermuda conference behind him, he must prepare to meet these other challenges .His honeymoon ,s all over, after 11 months. But ie has shown himself to be such a decent guy. with an instinctive desire to be fair and an ambition .o be a leader of all the people instead of the selfish minorities, :hat he is deserving of all the support he can get. Erskine Johnson IN HOLLYWOOD HOLLYWOOD —(NBA)— Be hind the Screen: Salvador Dali, the surrealist painter, gave Holly wood's leading men cause for some surrealist nightmares with his announcement that he plans to star Anna MagnanI in a movie titled "The Wheelbarrow of Flesh." Anna, says Dali, will play a woman in love with a wheel • barrow and "she will find in that object all the. qualities and charms of a human being." It's difficult to imagine a wheelbarrow replacing Alan Lidd or Tony Curtis or Howard Keel in movie, but the way things are changing in Hollywood maybe the Screen Actors Guild should im mediately outlaw wheelbarrows as substitutes for actors. Just In case this thine catches on, the Guild better include tractors, harvester!, Jeeps, Jaruars, tie. There are, in fact, all kinds of frightening possibilities. For example: How can an agent collect 10 per cent from ft wheelbarrow? How could a wheelbarrow accept «n Oscar? Would fan magazine readers relish articles like This? 'Don't Push Me." 'Should Wheelbarrows G o Steady?" or: 'What a Wheelbarrow's Married Life Is Like." Plunging Veola A Hollywood radio actress, hailed by Jack Benny and Edgar Bergen as "the girl with the most • undressed voice on the air," insists that a plunging contralto Is more important to a woman's sex appeal than a plunging neckline. "Voice seduction," says Veola Vonn, "is much better than a 34- inch bust. Marlene Dietrich could quote racing odds and still sound inviting." A regular on the Benny, Bergen nnd other top CBS radio shows from Hollywood, Veola's theory is: "Too many would - be femmes fatales stress the wrong thing. They're more interested In undressing themselves than their voices. Many an illusion has been shattered when a walking dream attempts to be a talking dream." Anthony Qulnn, who never so much as hummed "It Ain't Gonna Bain No More" in a Hollywood movie, put on his best "Aw, shucks" expression and admitted that he's about to become an operatic baritone In movies. Tony, who won an Oscar for the Doctor Says— Written (or NEA Service By EDWIN P. JORDAN, M. O. An interesting question on fibroids serves as a good starting place for a discussion of Ulat subject. A reader asks: 'Is it possible for a woman having fibroid tumors ol the uterus to have a normal, healthy baby, and confinement In spite of two previous miscarriages of three months?" The answer Is that It is possible, but the chances are not too promising. Under such- clrcumstancei it is sometimes possible to operate on the uterus or womb and remove a single fibroid, thus Increasing the chances of conception and the carrying of a healthy child to full term. Fibroids are fine of the causes of miscarriage and also for inability to conceive. Fibroids of the uterus are extremely common in women over the age of 35, and It Is said that about one .woman in every five has a nodule or tumor of this sort after this age. These tumors are not cancerous, but are made up of muscle and icar-llke tissue mixed together. In many cases fibroid tumors are small and do not produce symptoms or require treatment, but many are likely to grow slowly and eventually require treatment. The most common result is excessive or painful bleeding; sometimes pain or discomfort In the lower part of the abdomen is the pressure often associated with constant fatigue is common. Fibroids only sign. A feeling of weight or can also cause bladder or rectal symptoms usually because 'of the pressure which they exert. Those fibroids which are not producing symptoms usually do not need to be treated. They should be watched for symptoms and for rate growth. II symptoms do develop or the fibroids start growing apldly active treatment may be necessary. Surgery May be R n | After the change of life, surgery s generally considered the best reatmcnt for those fibroids which need attention. Generally when surgery Is necessary the whole womb Is removed with the tumor attached; occasionally the tumor alone is removed, but this is difficult and not always satisfactory. Occasionally fibroids can be treated by radium or X-rays, but this Is also a complicated procedure and requires (treat skill and judgment to decide which tumors stand a good chance of being successfully treated In this way. Symptoms do vary so, that each patient must be considered individually. • JACOBY ON BRIDGE By OSWALD JACOBT Written for NEA Service Tricky Hand Will Tnt Your Ingenuity Put yourself mentally in the East teat when you examine today's hand.

Blondes Now Popular A Hollywood beauty named Joan Vohs is doing a salaam to Joe DiMaggio's best girl and saying, "Praised by Marilyn."
