U. S. Must Choose Weak Pakistan or Angry India The proposal that the United States Should help Pakistan arm is one of the most ticklish to come along in many months. For it involves our already badly deteriorated relations with India. The case for assisting the armament of Pakistan is this: The most suitable invasion routes leading to the great South Asian lands lie In Pakistan territory. If Russian Communists to the north should ever decide to march, these exposed approaches would be a natural magnet. So the defense of Pakistan is crucial to the defense of the whole region. Moreover, the Pakistais have indicated their willingness to fight if they have the means. They have always been reasonably friendly to the United States and other Western powers, and alert to the Communist peril. The same cannot be said for neighboring India. The Indian leaders show a strong distrust of America, Britain and France. With their vision warped by old hatreds of colonialism, they seem to see the West a greater menace than Communist Russia. In consequence, neutralism is rampant in India. This neutralism, too has a certain foundation in geographic position. Ranged behind the highest reaches of the impregnable Himalayas, India is much safer from invasion than Pakistan. But India is not willing to see Pakistan equipped to protect the vulnerable avenues of invasion that the Russians could travel through its land. India sees an armed Pakistan not as a safeguard against communism but as a hreat to India. The Pakistanis once invaded disputed Kashmir, and the Indians fear they might move again. The Indian government feels it would have to step up its own armament, at the expense of social and economic programs. India claims this would play into the hands of the Communists. In fact, leaders there argue that even the mere proposal, through its stirring of anti-American feeling, is a boost to the Red cause. India's reaction to the military aid plan is so violent and bitter that it seems clear the assistance can be given Pakistan only at the cost of further serious worsening of U. S. - Indian relations. What the Eisenhower administration must now determine is whether it wants to pay this price for a strengthened Paki• itan at the gateway to South Asia. The choice is not an easy one. Cooperation Expected President Eisenhower's invitation to Democratic congressional leaders to meet with him and GOP leaders on foreign aid Mid defetiM matters is a healthful move. Mr. Eisenhower evidently ii keenly con- cerned to preterve the bipartisanship which has underlined to much of American foreign policy since World War II ended. After the Republican assault upon former President Truman in the Harry Dexter White case, many congressional Democrats were deeply angered. They vowed an end to the cooperation they often had extended to the Eisenhower administration in the 1953 session. But observers were quick to point out that the Democrats still are unlikely to declare all-out war on Mr. Eisenhower, for there are strong threads of continuity between his foreign-defense policy and the one devised by past Democratic administrations. With this element of similarity still a power factor, the Democrats can hardly turn on the President's policies without seeming to repudiate themselves. He will probably get the cooperation he seeks in this field. Views of Others It's Truth That Hurts It's the truth that hurt* and the tight-fitting •hoe that pinches. Our British allies are working themselves Into a "smashing" rage over Senator Joseph's McCarthy's attack on British trade with Communist China. Unfortunately the default ot both the Truman and the Eisenhower administrations which permitted and sanctioned the China trade even during the Korean fighting gave McCarthy his chance to capitalize on another neglected popular issue. In this instance, the issue of whether Western allies should trade with the enemy is obscured by the issue of "McCarthylsm"—on of the menace« of McCarthylsm being th« clouding of legitimate Inquiry. The British are self-righteously Ignoring the implications of their China trade to cry "foul" and to portray themselvei as victims of "Hate- maker" blg-bogey-man McCarthy. The current uproar li unfortunately playing Into the hands of the left-wing Laboratories, the Communist and the fellow-travelers who favor more, not less, trade with Red Chin* and Soviet Russia. These British pinks are shouting for greater independence from American policies and are accusing this country along with, West Germany and Japan reviving China trade for private profit. If we had blocked China when that nation entered the Korean war, as we shold have done, there would have been no help to the enemy and no debate now with our friends. As it was, we drifted into the worst of all worlds. It might be a good thing for the British, who have never bothered much about American reaction, to be concerned over what this nation thinks for a change. Certainly, we should not let British reaction as we are weir inclined to do, deter us from insisting that any trade or aid to China be halted until that nation agrees to a settlement in Korea and proves it* peaceful Intentions in Asia —Rocky Mount (N. C.) Telegram. n Brooklyn It's; Homicide In Brooklyn the other night an automobile driven by a Negro soldier, Cpl. Jacob Elmore, of Blacksville, S. C., who was accompanied by another Negro, was Involved in a siclesweeping accident with an automobile occupied by three young Brooklyn toughs. The auto occupied by the toughs drew alongside the Negroes at a traffic light and what was described in press stories as a "free-for-all fight" ensued. When the fight was over the Negro corporal was dead, having been bashed in the head with a baseball bat. The other Negro also was struck with the bat, but escaped. Police traced the car of the assailants and arrested them. Two were charged with homocide ad one was held as a material wittness. When something like this happens In the North it is reported — Accurately—as a fight and as hcmocide. But a few years ago a negro was killed by some white men in an argument over right-of-way on public road in a Southern state—and that was called a lynching. This plain case of roadside homicide was officially reported as a lynching In the annual tabulation made by the Tuskegee Institute and the South Was unjustly discredited throughout the —nation.— Chattanooga News-Free Press. 0 THEY SAY We will continue to regard America's ability and the needs of other nations as the determining factors in voting for foreign aid in the next Congress.—Sen.

Erskine Johnson IN HOLLYWOOD Peter ft/son's Washington Column — Isotope Business Self-Supporting; Bricker Amendment Stirs Activity Peter Bason By PETER EDSON Atomic Energy Commission's radio isotope business is now well established as self-supporting. It has more than paid operating costs for the past three years though it has not of course been able to pny back any of the multimillion dollar capital costs for building the first atomic reactors. Sales of the Isotopes — parti cles which have been made radioactive by atomic bombardment In a reactor — amounted to $1,117,564 for the fiscal year ending last June 30. Expenses were slightly under this figure. Total shipments since Isotone production began in 1946 now number over 7000. Among last year's users of Isotopes on various research, manufacturing and medical projects were 758 industries, 615 hospitals, 108 colleges, 137 federal and state government research laboratories, •11 foundations and 13 other miscellaneous buyers. Over 7500 patients have been treated with radio iodine. Five thousand other Isotopes have been used for treatment of cancer. Twenty thousand thyroid diagnostic tests have been made with isotopes and another 5000 other tests made In clinical procedure. Amendment Hassle While everything on the surfac is calm and quit, thr's a lot of bhind-the-scenes activity in connection with Ohio Republican Sen. John W. Bricker's proposed constitutional amendment to define the resident's powers in making international treaties and executive agreements. ' American Bar Association's committee which considered the Bricker amendment favored opposition, but its recommendation was, defeated on the A.B.A. convention floor. A number of the 60 senators who originally sponsored the Bricker amendment would like to back out, if they could find an excuse. But patriotic societies are whipping up support for it. There are many rumors that President Eisenhower, has an agreement that Sen, William F. Knowland's substitute amendment, restating existing law, will be accepted as a compromise. Senator Bricker stoutly denies it. Who's Alert? Just how confused the great mass of the voters out in the country can get over the big crises that worry the pants off of Washington wiceacres is illustrated by a report which Democratic National Committee Chairman Steve Mitchell brought back from Evansville, Ind. In talking to about 120 people, only one had heard Sen. Joseph E. McCarthy's speech assailing President Eisenhower and ex-President Truman. None had heard the testi- mony of Attorney General Herbert Brownell and FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover on the Harry Dexter White case. And, as one man remarked, "I didn't know President Hoover had been making any speeches lately." He's No Perfumer After 71-year-old Eenc Coty was elected president of France on the 13th ballot, the gag spread around that the popular new scent in French politics would no longer be "Chanel No. 5," but "Coty No. 13." But, as a matter of fact, the new prsident isn't related at all to the perfume manufacturing family which originated in Corsica and ssumed the name of Coty. He's a Le Havre lawyer. "Health" Problem Gallup polls indicating that only one voter in five expects a recession, while one voter in four says he is worse off today than a year ago, have received various interpretations. Since the cost of living has advanced only fractionally, how well off people feel they are is a relative thing. An industrial worker who may be employed full 40 hours a week feels he is worse off If he has lost overtime, A farmer feels worse off if his income taxes this year are only $800, instead of the $2000 a year ago. What will count in the 1954 eleo tions will be how relatively well off the voters feel they are next November, when they go to the aolls. HOLLYWOOD — (NBA) — Exclusively Yours: Fro football (tar Elroy Hlrsch and bin wife, Ruth, I can now spill it, have kissed and made up after almost calling off the domestic game Just before the release of Elroy'i hit filmblogra- phy, "Crazy Legs." The wile of a Hollywood star left her hubby to come between Elroy and Ruth, but the out-of-bounds penalty signal sent them back into the family huddle. Now friends report: "Elroy and his wife are happier than ever." The "other woman" and her estranged husband saw Elroy play In the last Lo« Angeles Rams game of the season. Ruth and Elroy both blame themselves for the offside antics and, after Ruth saw the movie, "Crazy Legs," friends quote her as saying: "I see now what I ihould have been to Elroy, but what I haven't been for the last few months." Gordon MacRae tests for the role of Curly in the big-screen version of "Oklahoma" next month and he's being frank about wanting the role: "If I don't ret It. I think I'll shoot myielf," he told me. It's Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh playing celluloid ^vers again in U-I's first Cinemascope spectacle, "The Black Shield," but when they walk on the set, says Tony, it's not as Mr. and Mrs. "Before we worked together in 'Houdini,' " he told me, "we made a pact — we would divorce ourselves on the set. It's the only way a husband and wife can work together in a movie. 'If the director bawls me out, or if lie bawls out Janet, we agreed not to come to one another's defense. On the act we are actor and actress, not hnsbnd and wife." Gary Merrill and Bette Davis are talking about a trip to Italy so Gary can join Shelley Winters, Vittorio Gassman and Sylvana Mangano in "Mambo." It all depends on Bette's health. There's a mad-at-the-studio angle behind Piper Laurie's hurried trip to New York with her mother. U-I's young beauty wants bigger and better roles, and resents beauties being brought in from the outside. The New Phil Harris Phil Harris has stopped playing Phil Harris for the meaty role of talkative Ed Joseph, the furniture salesman, in "The High and the Mutiny," and he's admitting there will be more escapes from the Harris character "if the roles come along." Phil played a straight role last year in "The Wild Blue Yonder," 3Ut Ed Joseph is the best emoting opportunity he's ever had on the screen. the Doctor Says— Written for NBA Service By EDWIN P. JORDAN, M. D. Two teen-aged boys have recent-* ly written that instead of being troubled with overweight they are abnormally skinny, and would like to add some pounds. In general, being overweight is much more of a health problem than being underweight. There are some, however, who could profit health-wise ns well as in appearance by putting on some weight. In the absence of nny definite disease responsible for abnormal thinness, nearly everyone, even teen-aged youngsters, can put on weight if they go nbout it in the right way. Perhaps the easiest way to discuss it is to explain a little about the nature of the problem. The human body operates like a machine for which food-fuel is converted into energy and used up in physical and mental activity. There are, therefore, two ways to gain weight; one to cut down on the activity output or exercise and he other to increase tho food intake, or simply, cat more. The fuel Intake can be increased in several ways. One of them is to choose the foods which have the highest energy or calorie value since these can be changed into weight as well ns into work. The starches or carbohydrates and fats supply more energy and have more effect on weight than proteins do. Must Keep Balance Balance must be maintained In the diet, however, It is not wise to cut out the fruits, vegetables, meat, milk and eggs which supply substances which help to maintain good health, particularly for those still growing. Another thing which can be done besides choosing the right diet is to cat more at each menl. The amount eaten is largely a matter of habit and the stomach cnn be trained to hold more by gradually Increasing the amount eaten at each meal. One good way to do this Is to cat until the appetite 1.1 satisfied and then tnkc a few more mouthfuls. ft**4 Courlu Ntwi Ctastitlcd Ad* • JAC06Y ON BRIDGE Hand Produces Bridge Fireworks By OSWAL DJACOBT Written for NBA Service "I have slipped this hand into my duplicate games many Limes," writes my friend, Walter Bonyun, of Brooklyn, "and the result is usually quite tame.

" NEW YORK <* — President Eisenhower sides today with those who believe it possible to prevent a "boom-and'bust" economy la America. A great many people share his view and applaud his determination. There are many others, however, who .believe that the old-fashioned business cycle can't be changed by governmental tinkering. Som« argue that such tinkering can do as much harm as good in the long run. There is still a third group that believes that while the business cycle of prosperity followed by recession can't be avoided entirely, it is possible both to prevent the boom from getting out of hand and to cushion the dips. • • • THE PRESIDENT'S speech promising the government will continue to use "every legitimate means" to sustain prosperity will revive the debate over government's role as a prop or pump- primer for business. Means used so far to combat the current slight dip in industrial production and trade are: First, easing credit and making money a little less dear: and, second, the tax cuts for business and for in.'lk dividuals which started with thi** New Year and are expected to make business a little more venturesome and consumers more able to buy the goods that industry produces. Washington is also reported ready with a public works program if the current upward trend turn. • • • BELIEF in the inevitability of the business cycle- has colored much of business thinking since World War II. Many .have kept right on expecting the postwar boom to be followed by a bust. There was a dip in 1949 when over-large inventories were being cut, just as they are being cut today. , That, recession had ended, however, before the Korean War started the new boom that apparently topped out late last spring. Recent fears of recession and demands that the government prevent one are dubbed a "state of economic hypochondria" by the Guaranty Trust Co. of New York in its January survey. The bank insists that the government should not be expected to "underwrite a.^ perpetual business boom." >W • • • ' THOSE WHO believe that the American economy will have to face a period of readjustment sooner or later argue that many factors underlying the postwar ooom were temporary and should . be recognized as such.
