This is a day when men do not always know their accusers or the charge against them. It is also a day when even investigators are investigated—and accused. Whatever the ultimate fate of La- Venia the McCarthy staff will have had at least a partial house cleaning. One would think it is the beginning of a new mood of responsibility on this committee which so far, under McCarthy's leadership has been distinguished by a singular lack of it.

They cannot be viewed as a surprise. As it happens, Roy Cohn, committee counsel, resigned; Donald Surine was transferred to McCarthy's personal senatorial staff, and Thomas W. LaVenia was put on notice he may lose his job unless further inquiry indicates a change in his security status. But if events had not taken this particular course with Cohn and Surine, the chances are great that they too would have been marked for possible firing from the staff. Surine and LaVenia are the two men who have been denied security clearance by the Defense Department. Cohn of course was a principal target of the Army in the recent hearings, having been charged with using improper pressure to seek favors for Pvt. David Schine. All these men were in trouble the moment Senator Potter of Cichigan called for a staff house cleaning at the end of the hearings. For Potter's vote added to those of the three committee Democrats is sufficient to put across any motion even though it be opposed by McCarthy and his two supporters Dirksen and Mundt. Cohn's resignation was represented by McCarthy as being the result of. "smears" He called it a great victory for communism. This is both misstatement and overstatement. Cohn is a bright lad but he is not in- dispensible to a sound fight on communism. Indispensable men are rare. Furthermore any usefulness he might have had was seriously impaired by his evident inability to control himself emotionally. There were reams of testimony in support of the charge that Cohn scattered threats around like buckshot. He used the power of a committee as if it were his. Even McCarthy, it was shown m a monitored phone call, said Cohn can be "completly unreasonable." Let it be clear that this was his downfall. If the reporting of his emotional outbursts constituted "smears" then McCarthy himself smeared Cohn. ^ ^As for Surine and LaVenia the specific reasons why they are without Defense Department clearance have not been revealed and apparently will not be. Surine was fired by the FBI for reasons not given and the answer in his case may lie there. LaVenia, a former Secret Service man, says he once was briefly linked with a young lawyers' group denounced by McCarthy himself as a 'Communist front" He thinks that might' explain his failure to get clearance. It 15 ironic that two staff men on the The death of former Sen. Blair Moody of Michigan came as a shock to public figures and his fellow newsmen alike. For 18 years this vigorous, husky man charged about Washington digging up news and dipping into a dozen activities at a time. He was a real workhorse. When the late Senator Vandenberg died in 1951, Governor Williams of Michigan picked his energetic friend Moody to succeed him. Up to then few men really knew Moody's Democratic leanings. As a senator for a year and a half Moody was no less active than before. He felt a solemn duty to translate into law every positive suggestion he'd ever made for government while reporting. He pursued his new task with conscience and purpose. In 1952 he was beaten at the polls by Senator Potter but the margin was fairly narrow. This year he was preparing for another go at the Senate/when severe illness suddenly struck him down at the full tide of his life. The country can do with more men who tackle their jobs so. furiously and honestly as did Blair Moody.

Only Quotations Like 1929 Even the analysts, those experts who nearly always have a reason for everything, are confused about the -stamina and buoyancy of the stock market. Prices are in the range of those of October and November, 1929, and they seem to insist on going up. Slowly the market observers are beginning to realize that the situation this year is different-different in several important respect*. One big difference, of course, is in the value of the dollars which present day stock quotations reflect as compared with those in 1929. You could buy a lot more ham and eggs with those 1929 dollars. So, the 1954 stock prices are really not quite so high in real values as the figures indicate. Then there is the matter of dividends: It isn't at all difficult to buy stocks—good stocks—that will yield 5 or 6 per cent better than they were doing in 1929. And it's not surprising that investments which pay 5 or 6 per cent and have sound equities behind them, should be in demand by the public. Even more important are the earnings of these good stocks. Many of the more prosperous corporations are earning a good deal more than they are paying out in dividends. These conservative dividend policies mean that the corporations are erpanding their physical plants or are building up reserves against leaner periods. In either case they are building up the net worth of the stockt. And that encourages people to keep on buying, even if the prices are high. These factors may not—probably would not—justify speculation for continued advance of the market, for many other factors in the economic and political situation are involved, but they do help provide an explanation for the market's bouyancy at a time when a great many people have thought the market ought to be going down instead of up.—The Columbia (Mo.) Daily Tribune. WASHINGTON— (NBA) -It highly significant that as the noisj clamor increases from a minority who want to take the United States out of the United Nations Soviet Russia is stepping up its activities in the world organization. What seems to be shaping up here is a struggle between the Communist bloc, and the anti-Communist nations for UN control. If the United States were to give up the struggle by withdrawing from the UN, it might be just as much of a surrender as pulling U. S. troops out of Korea, Japan or j Western Germany. On the other hand, if the Russian imperialists can gain control of the United Nations, their program of world revolution will be greatly advanced. Communist domination of the Security Council, for instance, would give the Russians a ready - made politburo for running the world. This, may explain why the Russians joined the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, UNESCO, after boycotting it for eight years. UNESCO has a big program of fundamental education for the more backward countries. Agitation among illiterates is where Communist organizers and revolutionaries make their first converts. No wonder they want in. This may also explain why Soviet Russia, Byelorussia and the Ukraine showed up at the recent Geneva conference of the International Labor Organization, seeking admission. Russia has boycotted ILO since 1939, when she walked out of the League of Nations. Any UN member may become an ILO member on application. Each country's delegation is made up of two government representatives, one employer and one trade union member. In the case of the Communist countries, there was naturally a question over whether employer and trade union delegates could be accredited in good faith, since the Red governments have abso lute control over both their man agement class and employes. They have no such thing as free enterprise employers nor free un ions. So here was the making of a first - class fight in ILO. Amer ican delegates Gov. Arthur B janglie of Washington and Assistant Secretary of Labor Ernest J. Wilkins, who have just returned rom Geneva, have filled in some of the detail not fully reported in he cabled news. A two - thirds vote was required o upset the two - to - one major- ty report of the credentials committee, which favored seating the Communist employer and employe elegates. The'United States, whose spokesman was Assistant Attorney Genral Warren E. Burger, took the osition that While the Russian loc government delegates had to oslavia, Hungary, Poland and the Ukraine.

This was broadened to apply to employer and employe delegates from Bulgaria, Byelorussia, Czech- Burger. "Does the employers' or workers' delegate take orders from his government while he is at this conference, or is he a free and independent representative whose views and vote cannot be dictated to by any government?" The ideas of ILO are not compatible with the slave labor camps of the Communist countries, he pointed out. The ILO would' not survive at all if its representatives were all dominated by monolithic governments like Russia. In spite of these arguments, the United States lost the fight. Out of a total of 210 delegates from 69 countries, the votes were 105 for seating all Communist delegates stuck by the U. S. But Britain, France, Italy, Pakistan, Ceylon, Burma, Sweden, Norway and Denmark deserted. Their apparent reason was that their governments Nelson Eddy's ditched plans for a TV show. "Sitting Bull" is due for an Aug. 9 premiere in Rapid City, S. D. The picture almost became Producer W. R. Franks' last stand when Mexican money bags ran out on him, but $500,000 of his own moolah saved the film's scalp. Scripters of the movie version of "Mr. Roberts" are going berserk trying to invent nonoffensive wordage to take the place of the play's gamey language. Picture version, by the way, will draw from the Thomas Heggen book for additional material. Kirk Douglas, who punched his way to stardom in "Champion," is throwing the fists' again in "Man Without a Star." The action calls for seven slugfesfes with assorted villains. His pals say there's nothing wrong with Edward G. Robinson, Jr., that a good movie break won't cure. The lad is aching to act. Hal Peary will - shake off the "Gildersleeve" identification, soon in a Joe Pasternak movie starring Fernando Lamas. He'll sport a Latin accent and uncork & rich baritone singing voice. 7J Ytars Ago In Blythevillt — James Guard and J. T. Sudbury are attending the Peach Festival In Forrest City today.

So now the Communists have another foot in the door to work for the subversion of union labor all over the world. For the United States, however, his offers a new challenge.

The recessionary trend which began last year has been stopped. Economic developments have proven conclusively the error of prophecies of gloom and doom emanating from many quarters only a few weeks ago.~Rep. Jesse p. Wolcott (R Mich.) Numerous correspondents have requested information on one of today's most common medical problems: ulcer of the stomach or peptic ulcer. This information desired covers a wide range, such as what an ulcer is, what are the different kinds, what forms of treatment are used and even whether the condition is serious. I have created a hope and trust in the country (France). It is my duty to honor this hope and trust—French Premier Mendes-France. * * # It would be an absurdity of history and of politics if France, by allowing EDC to fail, should be indirectly responsible for the creation of the German national army.— West German Chancellor Adenauer. First. I should like to say that there are two principal kinds of peptic ulcer, both often commonly called ulcer of the stomach. In one the ulcer is located in the stomach itself (gastric ulcer) and in the other just below the outlet of the stomach in the first portion of the intestines (duodenal ulcer). The symptoms of these 'two kinds of ulcers may be quite similar or there may be differences. Also it is not safe to assume that the same symptoms i n two different patients mean an .ulcer in the same location, because the symptoms often vary from person to person. The pain or distress of an ulcer in the stomach itself usually come s on soon after meals and is associated with some tenderness just below the breastbone. It may disappear for days at a time. Other digestive disturbances or sensations are common. more likely to come two or three hours after a meal rather than immediately after eating. Vomiting is not as common as in an ulcer located in the stomach itself. The exact diagnosis of the location of the ulcer depends on the results of careful history t?. ing, X-rays, examination of the stomach contents, and • sometimes looking into the stomach with an instrument called a gastroscope or photographing the lining. If the ulcer eats through the wall of the stomach, the contents wil be spilled into the abdominal cavity, and ^his is a dangerous complication. Bleeding is the other main complication. Certainly suspicious symptoms should not be ignored. Tomorrow I shall say something about treatment. made no blunders, and South was therefore defeated. "Who would have thought it?" muttered South. "Ten trumps in the combined hands, and my only play for the contract is to take a first round finesse."

Vomiting several hours after eating Is one. The pain when present may be burning or gnawing in nature and may come and go for several hours. Bleeding is also frequent and often makes the bowel waste look like tar.

He had every reason to be satisfied, since he had bid it well and since the success of the contract was a near certainty. West opened the king of diamonds and declarer won in the j dummy with the ace. South next led a trump from dummy to his ace, wincing with dismay when West failed to follow suit. South struggled on for a while, but he was doomed to lose one trick in each suit.

Once East followed suit with a low spade at the second trick, South could not lose the hand if he finessed the.jack of spades. If this card held the trick, South would lose at most one heart, one diamond and one club. As the cards actually lay, the finesse would have succeeded, and South would have made his contract. Even if the trump finesse hap-1 pened to lose, however. South ' would still be sure of the contract. South could then draw one more round of trumps to exhaust that suit.
