Governor Craig «aid a few days ago that the best Christmas gift for the people of Indiana would be an immediate and recognizable reduction in taxes, especially on homes in the lower brackets. The governor is so. so right. Today, he indicated that he has plans for making his dream come true. He has associated with him in the enterprise “Pat” Manion. an expert on law. and who has been teaching sound economics in Indiana for lo these many years. Manion’s services have been frequently used by state officials when new paths were pondered in the tortuous pattern of state government. A 12-member “Little Manion” committee to advance home rule by local government units in Indiana is being set up. The committee, paralleling the national committee headed by Dr. Clarence E. Manion. was appointed by Gov. Craig to prepare legislation for the General Assembly. It will work on plan« to reduce operational expenses of state government by eliminating nonessential functions and to restore more authority to local units. Governor Craig can do his party some good if the session becomes an outstanding milestone in the return of normalcy and shows results in the easing up of the Hoosier tax burden. We do not have to be as drastic as Harrison county, Ohio, which in a few words has threatened to secede from the republic if the taxpayers are compelled in the future to match federal funds for various “progressive developments” which have become, in these recent years, tacked on to the individual tax bill. They claim that the return to the counties in some of the processes is trivial as compared to the burden imposed in the individual tax hill. There is a moral in all of this, and any state official who has a genuine influence in thus responding to public opinion will have the gratitude of Hoosier taxpayers. and doubtless get some appreciation from taxpayers everywhere. There is talk in congressional circles that Under Secretary of ; State Walter Bedell Smith will resign next year because of ill health. President Eisenhower is known j to be highly pleased with the work of the former head of the Central Intelligence Agency and amba.««ador to Moscow’, and it’s con-idered likely that he will ask Smith to stay on the job. He may even ask Smith to take a prolonged re«t and return to his -job when he feels up to it. Incidentally, Smith is known to j be one of the principal foes in the State Department of Wiscon- i sin’s junior senator. Joseph R. 1 McCarthy. McCarthy, said these same congressional sources, will also be most pleased if diplomat John P. Davies. Jr., is forced to resign—which they predict will happen. Smith, of course, is known to have supported Davies when he was under fire by congressional critics. SCUApy 7ä ZUÇSPlTz8ANN ¿NAIN-CABLE. .

The lower house of the Belgian parliament has ratified the treaty setting up a European army. While the Senate has not yet acted, its approval is thought certain. This "ill probably speed up approval by the Dutch upper house, the lower having accepted the proposal last July. West Germany has completed all steps for ratification. The keystone of the structure is France. Fear that Germany will dominate the new organization, combined with the incurable squabbling of French politicians, has stymied international progress in that country. Belgium has suffered quite as much from German conquest in two wars as France, yet is willing to participate in a European army on an equality with Germany. Her example may stir France. At present, however, it looks as if France cannot agree on any action. In her defense, however, be it said she is holding the line in Indo-China against communism.

One of the most common sites for such a hemorrhage is in the deep abdominal muscles. It is very common in women and men who put excessive strain on these muscles, such as* by lifting.

Since you have tools, and can then carry out the necessary treatment, including operation when required. The blood vessels of the legs and thighs may also rupture following physical strain This is very common after such exercise, as swinging a golf club. Other common locations where blood vessels can rupture are in the lower back, calf, shoulder blades, and in the inner aspect of the er arm. . . . There is usually a tender swelling which finally causes a bluisn discoloration of the skin. This indicates a hemorrhage underneath the skin and into the muscle tissue. .

During these 11 centuries the e-lhetic of Byzantine art was stamped by the taste of its two great patrons—the abbots and the emperors. In the second half of the eighth century the church lowered the prestige of secular painting and directed the manner in which religious themes had to be handled. The artist was not supposed to paint what he saw. Byzantime are aimed higher than that.

Conried got into television while in Hollywood and was one of the original group that did the “Pantomime Quiz” program, a charades type of show on which he was rarely stumped. The casting of the actor in “Can-Can” had one of those fortunate twists. Abe Burrows, the author of the show, was having trouble finding just the right actor for the Bulgarian sculptor, Boris Adzinidzinadze, when he ran across a recording of his own work that had been done several years earlier when he was committing his comedy pianologues at Hollywood parties. One of the sides was a piece Burrows had j done with Conried. He played it and decided that the actor was the answer to his need. Another big movie “name” will be coming back to the stage in January when the new Phoenix Theater repertory group revives Shakespeare’s “Coriolanus.” Rob- contribution was the intensity of his fervor revealed through the expuessive power of his colors. And thus it was in its color that the life-force, the genius and the discoveries of Byzantine art were recorded. “Byzantine Painting” is not only a delight for the eyes. It also will show convincingly to the attentive observer the relatives value of freedom in the world of art. Today, when every artist records in his work his own individual world conception, ho rightly claims for himself absolute freedom of expression. For he is, so to speak, his own state and his own church. In times, however, in w hich a great and strong world conception stamps reality into a uniform mold, the artist can accept much of a venerated convention and limit his freedom to an intimate, personal interpretation of the exalted theme. Grabar’s competent text of Grabar is illustrated by 105 reproductions in full color.
