You have more friends when you let other people get the best of you and keep the worst for yourself. The Making of a Tycoon II you're not already top executive and you want to be, or you want your son to be, you'll be interested in the results of a study made of 33 higii-rank- ing businessmen in Chicago. They tend to overturn some cherished notions. The old idea that business leaders generally rise from humble beginnings isn't borne out by a check of these ex, ecutives' backgrounds. The phychologist who interviewed the men found many had solid upper middle-class upbringing, with a happy family relations. The study, by Dr. Robert M. Wald. ^ also indicated that for the most part it's better to be raised in a big city than on the farm or in a small town, if you seek the top. Exceptions, of course. As for the personality traits and habits, a number of things stood out- Almost without exception, 'these successful men were completely wrapped up in their jobs. and their organizations. They got most pleasure from work. They were highly skilled in getting along with other people, using tact and showing consideration and poise in their dealings. The 33 posessed extraordinary intelligence, particularly the knack of an- atyzing facts. On the whole they surpassed 96 per cent of the population in intelligence. The testers were suprised at this towering superiority. Generally these fellows weren't afraid to make decisions when they had to be made: they xvere normallv calm and when -provoked, kept their annoyance under some check: thev tended to be conservative: they were very frank in a^m'aismp- ^eir own assets Prid ^ia- hiHHop. a^rJ rh<^' pv"MMted i-no-h .standards of fr»]or?ri(>p for f^e npvformqnce and viewpoint ^f other people.

But the psychologist observed that executive responsi- bilit.v bv its' nature stirs anxiety in men. The findings showed further that the fear of failure. Thev kept on pressing many were almost driven to success by upward because they dared not stop. Obviously, not too many of us can aspire to real eminence In the ingredients, though some of us may cover certain shortcomings by a tremendous effort of will. The rest will have to be content either with success in other fields or with the with the fact that more modest accomplishment may give them time to live more varied and more leisurely lives than their hard - driving friends pushing to the top. With fuM respect to those who havt tht stuff to fo all the way* we'd lika to suggest that lif« short of the top can be pretty wonderful, too. Love That Snorer It seems that in prehistoric times, when human beings lived in caves, the man of the "house" had quite a problem protecting his lady from marauders. So he made noises to frighten them away The louder and more ferocious the noises, the better his defense. Now we hear from a British doctor that men who snore may be subconsciously performing their old protective function, defending the little woman against troublemakers. According to the theory, wives ought to look on the old man's snore as a sign of deep affection. It means he cares. So, madam, the next time you wake up in the middle of the night because he is figuratively ripping the plaster off the walls, don't shake him into weak silent submission. It's not every girl who can get a man who will bellow sweet nothings into her ear all night long. VIEWS OF OTHERS Forcing The Issue When the Supreme Court handed down its recent opinion declaring segregation in the public school unconstitutional, it delayed issuing formal decrees. This left in a kind of legal void not only state and local statues governing schools, but also segregation by law and by custom in many other areas of human relations. It was in this atmosphere" that a test was made of the policy of segregation diners in the new restaurant at Municipal Airport A spokesman for a group of Negro residents of Chorlotte appeared before the City Council and said that this group had been refused service in the main dining room and coffee shop at the airport restaurant. He charged that this was discrimination, and asked the Council to take appropriate action to assure "public use (of the restaurant) on fair and reasonable terms and without unjust discrimination." Since the immediate question is one of law, the Council properly referred the matter to City Attorney John Shaw. It will be interesting to see what opinion Mr. Shaw comes up with. If the City of Charlotte were operating the restaurant, it is doubtful that discrimination because of race would be legal. However, the restaurant space is leased to a private operator. And the legal question is whether his authority as a private restaurant operator is di-" minished because the space he leased is public property, having been paid for jointly by the City of Charlotte and the federal-government. In this incident may be seen the forerunner of many problems that will beset the South in the years ahead. The more impetuous leaders among the Negro race will not be inclined to wait for court clarification of the segregation laws. They will probably try to force the issue in all public and quasi-public services. That may be a profitable short-range strategy, but over the longer period it will make it far more difficult for reasonable men of both races to try to resolve long standing differences. To that extent, it will delay the very objectives sought by those who force the issues.—The Charlotte (N-C.) News. Knocking Each Other Out In knocking down both the Democratic and the Republican ''plans" for income tax reduction, the Senate has done a constructive thing. Neither of these proposals was geared to the welfare of the country. Both were directed primarily to the November elections. In supporting an extra $100 exemption for individual income taxpayers and their dependents, the Democrats were making a popular appeal to the mass pocketbook. However, they took no regard of the fact that the national budget is already strained and an increase in the national debt limit appears likely, even with present revenues. Their move to reduce revenues was, therefore, unsound. For their part, the Republicans were merely playing around with arithmetic in an effort to come up with something that would forestall the Democrats. If taxes were going to be reduced, they wanted the credit. They were looking ahead to the fall elections too. Fortunately, the two parties are so evenly divided that the dissidents in each were sufficient to defet both proposals. And the country was spared what would have been a fiasco either way. — Johnson City, Tenn., Press-Chronicle. Franc* is concerned with Indochina of course, but it's the big powers—the TJ.

'Meow' 'Arf Ers/cme Johnson IN HOLLYWOOD HOLLYWOOD — (NBA) - Exclusively Yours: Jean Peters, in Washington, D. C., says she's NOT retiring from pictures. Shelving Hollywood gossip that she's throwing in the towel marked "Star" since marrying millionaire Stuart W. Cramer, m, Jean gave me this exclusive statement on her future: "I do not intend to give up pictures. I asked for and received an eight - week leave from Fox, during which time I was married and honeymooned. As far as I know, the studio has no immediate picture plans for me, so I won't be back in Hollywood for at least a month or so." Peter Edson's Washington Column- Requested Anti-Red Laws Are Needed to Squelch Commies Membership of the U. S. Communist Party is now estimated at i under 25,000. Five years ago it ' was over 100,000. This shows what active prosecution of the Communist Party can do to break it up or drive it underground. In any event, active prosecution under the law is shown to be far more effective in getting rid of Commies than congressional investigation, though the latter has its advantages in stirring up public interest. Some 10,000 U. S. Communist Party members are now under investigation to see if they can be i denaturalized. In addition, Immigration and Naturalization Service of Department of Justice has under active investigation some 12,000 more to determine whether they can be deported. There is naturally duplication in the two categories mentioned, as some Commies are subject to both denaturalization and deportation. This illustrates the magnitude of the job ahead in cleaning out the rats, and it is slow business. To speed it up is the task that faces William P. Tompkins, former U.S. attorney for New Jersey, who has just been made an assistant attorney general in charge of a new Internal Security Division of the Department of Justice. Since the Eisenhower administration came to Washington only 84 Communists have actually been deported. But 268 more are under final deportation orders and part of the difficulty is that not even Communist countries will take back their native emigrants. In the past year and a half, Department of Justice has also taken action against 27 U. S. Communists on other grounds. This includes one treason case, two for espionage, four for harboring Communist fugitives,, 15 for making false statements or false oaths denying Communist Party membership on Taft - Hartley law affidavits, three for perjury in denial of Communist Party membership and three fugitives from Smith Act sentences. The Smith Act cases, going back to 1948, have, of course, struck the hardest blow at TJ. S. Red party leadership. The act imposes a maximum sentence of five years in prison and §10,000 fine for conspiracy to advocate overthrow of the U. S. government by force and violence. Under This "Law 109 U. S. Communist Party functionaries have been arrested in the past six years, and 72 have been convicted; 24 in two New York trials, 14 in Los Angeles, six in Baltimore, five in Pittsburgh, seven in Honolulu, five in Seattle, six in Detroit and five in St. Louis. Nine more are on trial in Philadelphia and seven in New Haven. Eleven more will be tried in Cleveland this fall. The cases of five of the accused —including Party Chairman William Z, Foster—were severed due to illness, but the indictments still stand. Only three of the 88 brought to trial under the Smith Act have been acquitted. One withdrew an appeal and one was a suicide. Pines have varied from 11 at $1000 to 31 at $10,000, the others being in - between. The total of fines imposed has been over $400,000, but so far NOT ONE CENT has been collected. Practically none of the convicted has any assets. But when three of them—Henry Winston, Gus Hall and Gilbert Green—forfeited high bail and fled the country, the collection of fines from other sources was made a leading question. Settlement for the fines, through a pauper's oath, or paying it off at the rate of $10 a month or more, is up to the court where sentence was imposed. The first group of Smith Act violators, including Eugene Dennis, the party secretary, began serving sentence July 2, 1951. The law grants one - fourth time. off for good behavior. This means that Dennis would be eligible to apply for parole in April, 1955. Eva Gabor, far from being over her mad - on at Zsa Zsa, as reported, won't say one word, good, bad or indifferent about the .sister .who may make her the in - law of Porfirio Rubirosa. The calmer Gabor merely points out that family members shouldn't talk about each other and clams up with a "No comment" if pressed for quotes. Betty Hutton showed up at Ciro's to celebrate her divorce from Charles O'Curran with constant escort Alan Livingston, a record executive^ But she asked photographers not to snap her being the gay Betty all over the place. Edmund Purdom, who worked his mouth while Mario Lanza's tenor voice boomed out in "The Student Prince," is heard as a baritone this time in MGM's "Adam and Athena." Again, it's a voice double for the British star. Just because you can't sing doesn't mean you can't be a singing star in the movies. Hammerstein wrote it for an all- Negro cast. Sexy, sultry - voiced Dorothy Dandridge is the tragic heroine in love with a G.I. (Harry Belafonte), Joe Adams is the "Stand Up and Fight 'Till You Hear the Bell" muscle - flexer, who fights 15 rounders instead of bulls, and Pearl Bailey's in for a couple of songs. Preminger is doffing his topper to Darryl Zanuck for taking the chance with the off - beat, by Hollywood standards, production and cast. Says he: "Zanuck's a showman. He knows the play is the star." Although the claim was made that Fox had stopped th* Ben Hecht series on Marilyn Monroe's life in the Empire News, the secret-spilling wordage is still running in the London newspaper. Seven or eight installments have appeared, with one due soon on Marilyn's version of her feud with Joan Crawford. A rodeo gal, it'i being told, was sent to a vocal coach by a studio executive who thought she had the makings of a star. All day long, the sagebrush beauty went around muttering: "How now, bronco." Betta St. John, who started off great guns as a movie doll, is temporarily giving up her career to be plain Mrs. Peter Grant in London. When her success outstripped that of her actor hue- band's, whom she met in the cast of "South Pacific," Betta decided her marriage was worth saving. Three Los Angeles Rams professional grid stars, Don Paul, Stan West and Tank Younger, join teammate Elroy Hirsch as actors in "Unchained." When scenes are filmed at the California Institution for Men at Chino, they will work out tiwh the inmates' football team. " • Maybe they'll wind up the picture "Pros and Cool." In other fields, the U. S. war against Communists goes on in a less spectacular manner. As of April 30 the Eisenhower administration had dismissed 429 government employes as subversives under the President's security order. But there has been no disclosure as to how many of these were actually Communist Party members. The Subversive Activities Control Board has found the Communist Party to be the agent of a foreign government and has ordered it to register with the attorney general. But this decision is now pending before the U. S. Court of Appeals. Passage of new legislation requested by the Eisenhower administration is the one thing that would do most to speed up the anti - Commie war in the "ET. S. Reports of a reconciliation between Don Taylor and Phyllis Avery were unfounded. Phyllis may have sailed to Europe, but it wasn't .to join Don, who's making "The Men of Sherwood Forest" in London and dating pretty Jill Adams, a movie starlet. It escaped newsprint that MGM producer Jack Cummings legally adopted Steven Shaw, the son of his wife, Betty, and her ex-husband, Artie Shaw. The lad is now 11 and gives every sign of being as handsome a* his much married pop. "Car-men Jones," Oscar Hammerstein's south of the Mason- Dixon line version of "Carmen" with Bizet's music, was a 1943 Broadway hit nixed by Hollywood for 11 years because movie makers were afraid of an all-Negro cast. One studio "genius" almost bought the film rights until Hara- merstein read the small print. The brain wanted to film the deep south "Carmen" with an all- white cast. Hammerstein's shout of "No" in his New York office was heard, it is said, at Hollywood and Vine. But now Cinemascope cameras are turning on Otto Preminger's film version of the musical as the Doctor Says— Written for N'EA Service By EDWIN P. JORDAN, M.D. As a start to a brief discussion of angina pectoris I should like to answer a question asked by Mrs. F. M. "Can one," she asks, "have normal electrocardiogram after a coronary thrombosis, and is. this the same as angina pectoris?" The answer to tne first part of the question is yes. The electrocardiogram can be, but is not necessarily, normal some time after a coronary thrombosis. A coronary thrombosis is a blocking of one of the blood vessels supplying the heart completely and is not the same, therefore, as angina pectoris, though some people who have had a coronary thrombosis will also have symptoms of angina. Now tne meaning of angina pectoris is simply pain in the chest, but it is applied by physicians to a condition in which insufficient amounts of blood are flowing through the coronary arteries to the heart muscle. If these vessels develop spasms, or more commonly if the passageways are partly narrowed, there will be times when not enough blood passes through them. The needs of the heart muscle for blood are not satisfied, therefore, and the pain of angina pectoris develops. In typical instances the pain is likely to be absent when the person with angina is resting. It is likely to be noticed the first time when the heart is pumping rapidly, as happens when exercising (climbing stairs or running for a bus, for example). Under such circumstances, the heart needs larger quantities of blood than it does when at rest. In addition to pain, the symptoms •ite* ioolttd* A feeling ef anxiety, shortness of breath and cold, clammy sweating. A person who has angina pectoris must, therefore, learn how much exercise can be taken without producing symptoms. Many victims of angina learn how to live with their hearts and have little or no discomfort. Indeed, the outlook for patients with angina is not so unfavorable as was formerly believed. Many live for a great many years after the onset of their symptoms. The management of angina pectoris has improved. The amount and nature of exercise which can be tolerated can be more closely calculated than in the past. Also, there are several drugs which when given properly will usually help the victim of angina, even though drugs do not cure the underlying cause which lies in the coronary arteries. • JACOBY ON BRIDGE By OSWALD JACOBY Written for NBA Service Ovtrsf'mp/ifying Leads to Disaster Bridge is really a simple game, but it is possible to fall into dangerous error by oversimplyfying it. This point is illustrated in the discarding done by West in the hand shown today. West opened the three of spades against the logical and well-bid contract of thre no-trump. East put up the ten of spades and was allowed to hold the trick. South worn toe spade continuation aod fi- nessed the ten of clubs, losing to East's jack. East kept plugging away at spades, and South won and took thought South made up his mind to take a second club finesse, but he rightly saw no harm in running his four diamond tricks first. West followed suit on the first three rounds of diamonds, but when declarer led the fourth diamond, West had to find a discard. West didn't want to discard his queen of spades, since that was ace instead of finessing. The king of clubs dropped, of course, and declarer was able to run the rest of the suit, making his contract and an overtrick. If West had kept his small club, South would have taken a second club finesse as his best try for the contract. The defenders would then [take two clubs, two spades, and I the ace of hearts to defeat the con- I tract. n In B/y*/itv/7J Miss Mary Adah Robinson to spending two weeks in the East on a tour conducted by Miss Willie A.

Hence West discarded a low club. It all seemed very simple. West knew that he could never take a trick with a club, and he therefore considered it quite logical to discard one of his worthless clubs. This was an oversimplification. West's discard made it only too clear that he had no high club to protect. South therefore knew that East held the king of clubs and that a second finesse in that suit would lose. Actinft on this information.
