McMath Blast Scatters Much Shot But Hits Little In formally opening- his active campaign for a goal he has always cherished— The U. S. Senate—Ex-Governor Sid McMath fired a booming- volley of charges at his incumbent opponent, Sen. John L. McClellan. Mr. McMath's speech at Little Rock Thursday night was a masterpiece of political cliche. It drew strict lines and pitted, without regard for basic principles involved, time-worn phrase against hackneyed accusation. "Power trusts." ''banking interests," "utility monopolies^" "special interests" —typical terminology of one setting himself up as the "champion of the common man" and trying to label" his opponent as an ogre dedicated to the repression of humanity. McMath has accused Sen. McClellan of being pro-Republican in his stands on several issues—especially in matters concerning electric power. This is based on the wobbly premise that anyone not fully in favor of such things as TVA has therefore departed the Democratic fold. Neither much time nor space need be expended to point out that Sen. McClellan sees what men like McMath are oblivious to: that public power is not cheap power, especially when you consider that we private power customers are also helping pay for "cheap" TVA power for a small area. In this respect— and in other fields in which he has been accused of being "pro-Republican" — Sen. McClellan is only defending a principle which we also propound: that government should not enter the domain of private enterprise. Sen. McClellan is doing well to stand on his record, for it is more than sufficiently solid to support his bid for another term. An example of his deservingness to be returned to Washington as our senior senator is this reply he made to McMath's charges: "I believe in—I support and adhere to—the basic fundamental principles of the Democratic Party. I have never voted for a Republican. But I have never let, nor do I intend to permit, partisanship to transcend my conscience and my duty to you and our country." Such a creed raises a man from the level of mere politics to one approaching true statesmanship. Plan Would Give Foreign Service New Lease on Life For some time now the State Department has been suffering from a lack of good foreign service recruits. Con- sequtntly, any plan 1 that promises sensibly to make up this lack of merits th* SUBSCRIPTION RATES: By carrier in the city of Blythevflle or any suburban town where carrier service is maintained. 25c per week. By mail, within a radius of 50 milfs, $5.00 per year, $2.50 for six months, $1-25 for three months; by mail ontside 50 mile zone, $12.50 per year payable in advance. thoughtful consideration of Congress and the country. Aspecial committee has come up with a proposal that perhaps contains that promise. Secretary of State Dulles has approved it, and the matter thus is up to the lawmakers. What the plan recommends is that entry into the foreign service be placed on virtually the same plane of prestige and talent as admission into the Army and Navy through West Point and Annapolis. No special foreign ssrvice school would be set up> but several hundred scholarships would be handed out annually to selected students in various colleges. Upon graduation, these students would go immediately into the State Department and serve a minimum of six years. This would assure the foreign service of a steady inflow of qualified young men. As things presently stand, the number who pass the necessary tests is comparatively small, and often these successful applicants have to wait two or three years for an assignment. The committee estimates the cost of the ''scholarship recruitment" plan at $2 million a year. This seems a fairly modest price to pay for a program that may in time do much to elevate standards of performance in so vital a sector of government as the foreign service. No other agency of government has been subjected to such damaging and constant assaults as this one. Indeed, that very fact is to some extent responsible for the difficulties of recruitment. If Congress believes this department has many times shown gross incompetence at the foreign service level—as one must gather from the general tone of criticisms over the years—then the lawmakers ought to welcome eagerly any prgoram which offers seritously to bring- qualified personnel into the service. A new lease on life for the foreign service will not alone restore the State Department to a high pitch of morale and efficiency. Many other factors are involved in its current low status. But this hopeful plan could help to build a stouter framework for the future. Still'Funny' Funnyman Charlie Chaplin hasn't been, so funny to Americans lately as his record pro-Communism has been further unfolding. While in this country, Chaplin was the associate of varying shades of leftists and fellow travelers.. And while amassing his fortune from American moviegoers he had little respect for this country, declining to seek citizenship though he stayed here many years. Americans were relieved of Chaplin's unwelcome presence when he was denied re-entry after having gone—temporarily, he thought—to Europe. Then came the award to Chaplin by Russia of a communist "World Peace Prize" for his support of a phony Communist "peace' plan. Now there is new Red "honor" for Chaplin. In a propoganda broadcast recently, Radio Moscow said: "Chaplin portrayed the unsuccessful man, the victim of the capitalist world . . . The little man, the bum, the beggar, always hungry, dressed in rags, covered by the dust of the roads he tramped, fought single handed the cruel and indifferent world . . . police and the contemptous rich man." Said the Red radio further of Chaplin: "Ke came into our camp as simply and naturally as a tributary falls into a river, as a river flows into the ocean." The Communist failed to mention that Chaplin himself is a "rich man," a "captialist," that he has a fortune estimated at 20 million dollars.— —Chattanooga News-Free Press. SO THEY SAY European powers cannot save Asia from Eurasian communism. It is the peoples of Asia who basically must save themselves from that threat— internally or externally.—Sen.

I am of the opinion that we ought to have a try for peaceful co-existence (with communism) a. real good try for it. —Winston Churchill I believe that two years from now internationally staffed laboratories can be searching out new constructive uses for th atom. I believee that three years from now atomic reaction designed for medical therapy can be in existence—com- batting cancer in 'all the free regions of the world.—AEC Chairman Cole. * * 3f. Americans should be just as dynamic as the Communist. Otherwise, we just surrender They are not government*; they are gangsters.—Clarence Manion, former dean Notre Dame Law school. Commonly Known as Buying a Pjg in a Poke! Peter Edson's Washington Column — Bad News Underlies the Result Of Anglo-American Conference WASHINGTON— (NEA) —What came out of the Eisenhower- Churchill Dulles - Eden conference _ in Washington was not as optimis- j tic as it may have appeared on the surface of the fine-sounding communiques. Not mentioned in either statement was the firm British opinion that no British soldier would be allowed to go to Indo-China to fight. That dashes completely any hopes for a united action program to save Southeast Asia from Communist aggression, in spite of the pious declaration in the commu- nique that "we will press forward with plans for collective security." From this it would appear that if, or, when, the Communists get down to the borders of Malaya, the British might be willing to make another of their historic last stands. They would then want plenty of help. In the meantime, any fighting to save Indo-China will have to be done by others. There is a certain amount of buck - passing now going on between Washington and Paris over who takes responsibility for what happens next. The French say they won't decide on what part of Indo-China they will give up to the Communists until they know what the United States will do. The U. S. government for its part is waiting to see what deal Premier Mendes - France makes with the Communists, as it's up to him to draw the cease - fire line. The U. S. House of Representa- tives has just approved another SSOO million of aid for carrying on the Indo-China war next year. But for all practical purposes, Washington seems to have written off any possibility for a victory over the Communists in this area. A miracle might somehow save the situation. But the French are surrendering the rich rice bowl in the Tonkin delta around Hanoi. They may try to save the Mekong delta south of Saigon. Wether the actual dividing line is made at the 16th or the 20th parallel, or anywhere in-between, may not be important. The prin- ! ciple of the thing is that the French are reconciled to surrendering a part of their territory to the Communists to obtain a cease- fire. The sad fact is that whatever is given up in the armistice is gone for good. The French may try to hang onto a beachhead around Haipong to make an orderly evacuation of their forces from Hanoi and in the north. How many Viet Namese forces may be evacuated, or how many may choose to move south with the French is, of course, unknown. Some of them may choose to stay north and desert to the Viet Minh Communists in order to be with the winners. A companion riddle is how much of the more than a billion dollars' worth of U. S. • military aid and equipment furnished to the French in Indo-China can be salvaged in the northern withdrawal. The prospect is that a lot of this material will be lost. Perhaps the most that can be I salvaged out of the Indo-China war ' is the retention of southern Viet Nam and the demilitarizing or neutralizing of Laos and Cambodia so that they will not fall into Communist hands immediately. Out of this might come, if the French agree to it, a new line on which the anti-Communist forces might stand. There might be an agreement that if the Communists crossed this new line, it would be considered an act of aggression that would call for retaliation. Erskine Johnson IN HOLLYWOOD HOLLYWOOD — (NBA) — Exclusively Yours: Now it's Lauren Bacall who wants to make a stab at being a movie musical comedy queen. She sings "after a fashion," once studied dancing:. and says, "I'd love to try one and that's not saying that J wouldn't fall flat on my whatsis." Walter Wanger is admitting the possibility of a theater re-issue of Ingrid Bergman's last Hollywood movie, "Joan of Arc." The picture grossed over $6,000,000 but still came out on the red side of the ledger because of the distribution and capital set-up ... Nobody at Fox can explain it, but a muzzle has been placed on the information that Johnnie Ray plays a young singer who becomes a priest in '•There's No Business Like Show Business." Frankie Laine's long - time accompanist, Carl Fisher, is slated for posthumous fame for a 10-year labor of love completed just before his death. The Cleveland Symphony will play his 25-minute "Indian Suite" for the first time in mid-August, followed by a Hollywood Bowl presentation Sept. 11.

Oveta Culp Hobby's office in Washington, D. C., has been working page by page with Ida Lupino and Collier Young on their juvenile delinquency script, "Mad at the World." Keefe Brasselle will star in the picture. Republic's looking for a new title for "Zsa Zsa Goes West," the picture that will star Miss Two Z and Porfirio Rubirosa. Studio better look for a new audience, too. Peggy Ann Garner, who has had to worry about her mother for most of her life, is furrowing her brow again about mom ... If Sterling Hayden goes ahead with his divorce action against his wife Betty (and she is saying he can't) there will be a lot of front page noise about property settlement and alimony. Young Robert Francis is headed for the screen's new heart-throb title after the dolls lamp him in "The Caine Mutiny." Columbia's ready with three more films starring him. Sandor Szabo, the TV wrestling champ, is emoting in Hollywood now in Paramount's "Love Is a Weapon." He was just voted the nation's most popular grunt and groaner and says about his good who stripped to the waist at Cannes and who was refused a work permit in the U. S. Brigitte Auber, a new European cutie featured in Alfred Hitchcock's "To Catch a Thief," admits to being a practic- ng nudist. She's due in Hollywood soon to complete the Gary Grant-Grace Kelly film, which has been on location in France. Gracie Fields decided not to okay the script of "Queen of Capri," her film biography. Too many touchy sequences about her sportsmanship: , "Tern other bums like Gorgeous Sllva ' the ^ do11 Gussie or whatever his name is, most recem marriage Rory The British have an idea that they might superimpose on this new type of Southeast Asia defense pact an agreement to bring the so-caled Colombo powers into it. This would include India, Burma and Pakistan. But there is no assurance that they would join in any guarantees for the defense of this area. India, in particular, is in doubt, in view of the Nehru-Chou En-lai agreement to support "unified and independent" states in Indo-China. Chinese Communist and Viet Minn forces, of course, want all of Viet Nam and all of Laos and Cambodia, for that matter. In the absence of any Southeast Asia pact, it is recognized that at the present time these Communist forces have the power to take what they want. But if the Communists did take all of Indo-China, it is possible that the reaction in the United States would take the world close to a general war. That is the unpublicized but truthfully bad news that comes out of the British- American conference. Calhoun, accustomed to seeing his name in big type over the title, is far from jubilant over the tiny letters spelling it out in Fox's ads for "River of No Return." It was they just louse up the racket." Just as Lex Barker cooled down about a wire story error referring to Jess Barker as his brother, a story from Paris said another brother, Bill Barker, would co-star with Claude Dauphin and Louis Jour dan in "The Greatest Crimes of France," a telefilm series. For the record: Lex doesn't have any brothers—just one sister. led another diamond, declarer ruff- ing once more. Dr. Lipton now led a third round of trujnps, and once more discarded a low heart from the dummy. This, as we shall see, was a very thoughtful discard. East considered his own discarding problem for a moment or two and then dropped a diamond. Lipton promptly led his last trump to draw West's last trump, discarding a third heart from the dummy. East likewise discarded a heart. By this time Lipton had an absolute count on the distribution. He knew that West had started with exactly four spades. The play j of the diamonds and East's even- ' tuaj diamond discard made it clear j that West had started with three diamonds. West's overcall at the level of two showed at least a five- • card suit. Hence West could not I hold more than one club. Shelley Winters not only gets 51 per cent of the western hemisphere grosses of her British movie, "Million Dollar Baby," but also gets to keep the minks and sables movie fur designer Al Teitelbaum is whipping up for the picture. Let Jimmy Stewart, who started the actor percentage kick, match Shelley on that. Virginia Grey, who used to date Guy Madison, isn't seeing TV's Wild Bill Hickok any more. The flame went out. French movie queen Martine Carol, who is still Mrs. Steve Crane and looks like Steve's ex, Lana Turner, nixed a Fox emoting offer Mel Allen about an actor: "He's traveling under an assumed air." Overheard: "He's really a nice fellow. He'd let you do anything for him." 75 /ears Ago In BlytheYille — Mrs. Edgar Borum and daughter, Having counted out the hand, \ Miss Mary, left today for Bedford. the Dnrtor favr— IffSt, ±smsl>UI Ljl*,J Written for NEA Scrvice By EDWIN P. JORDAN. M.D. Bright's disease, or nephritis, may begin suddenly, either immediately after an acute infection, such as tonsillitis, pneumonia, or scarlet fever, or it may not show up until several months later. Sometimes it develops without any obvious reason. In acute attacks of nephritis, the symptoms come on rapidly but painlessly. The patient feels uncomfortable and may notice some puffiness under the eys. the excessive fluid. Much improvement has taken place in the treatment of nephritis. In that which follows acute infections, like pneumonia or scarlet fever, new hope is offered by the sulfa drugs and penicillin or other antibiotics. These drugs often stop such infections before they have had a chance to damage the kidneys seriously. Th lessened amount of urine and its dark, bloody, or cloudy appearance are characteristic. Chronic nephritis starts more gradually, and symptoms resemble the acute variety, but are less severe. Accumulation of fluid (dropsy or edema) is common. As soon as diagnosis has been made by means of examining the urine and the blood, treatment should be begun. In acute Bright's disease, bed rest is necessary. Diet is important and is now devised to fit the ability of the kidneys to take care of the food eaten. In the chronic form of Bright's disease, special attention is given to the accumulation of dropsical fluid. Drugs are frequently used to stimulate the secretion of the urine and thereby remove some of IF YOU INSIST on diving and swimming in strang-e and unguarded lakes, be sure to wear a bright red bathing suit.
