THE WASHINGTON Merry-Go-Round By DREW PEARSON Waihin|ton--Copies of more scrrrt Chinese cibles have just been obtained by this columnist, dhowinf how the C h i a n g K a i - S h e k government conspired lo pull the U n i t e d States m t o '4 t h i i d World war and how Chiang was in f r e q u e n t touch with Centra! M t c A r t h i i r . The cubits wrre M-nt by the Chinp.sp Embassy in Washington to Chiang in Formula and have now been translated o f f i c i a l l y by the Library of Congress. The most a m a z i n g cable \r. risled December 4, 1940, and state::,: "Our hope of a World war so is to r e h a b i l i t a t e our country is u n - palitjbl* to the ( A m e r i c a n ) people." This policy of embroiling t h e U n i t e d S t a t e s in I t h i r d World war in order In r e h a b i l j i s l e Chiang apparently was established i m m e d i a t e l y 4 f t « r tn* Bed invislon of Korea on Jim* 25, 195ft. For, in a cable d|ted .July H, j u r t thrt-f. weeks a f t e r thr invasion, the Chinese Ejnbassy warns t h a t they must be p a t i e n t a b o u t t h P i r plan to e x t e n d thf Korean war to t h e rest of the A s i a t i c m a i n l a n d . "Whtther the C h m ^ p (,'onimuniMs send trcopt to Korea or not is of secondary i m p o r t - anct," the Embassy cabled C h i a n g , " b u t the war in South Korea w i l l bn e x t e n d e d in "iny cast.

In fact, one of t h e i r cables a c t u a l l y discusses t h r ; fitness of the ambassador to r e m a i n on the job.

Brag it off. You don't have to go on a prolonged starvation diet. You don't have to gulp appetite-reducing pills or consult a psychiatrist. You don't have to lake sweat baths, l i f t barbells, or go on 20-rniie -hikes. All you have in do is brag, brng. bra£. The pounds will roll off you magically. I consider this a million-dollar idea in the field of malnutrition. It is my own idea. And I give it free to a calore-consdous world as a good will gesture to corpulent mankind. late Mohandas Oandhl In my bedroom. He was my ideal p i n u p boy. In t h e b e g i n n i n g I guess I was the strong, silent type. I would lose a few pounds, become sick of tllr whole business, and eat the lo~t pounds hack in two days, 1 hair'i to t a l k about my diet for fear of boring people. One day an arquantance bored · me for tv;o hours t a l k i n g about hvs | d i r t , j n revenge? I talked to him for a f u l l hour about my d^. To my surprise, when I weigh**! myself going home, I found I ha-d mysteriously lost a pound. There are two kinds of people imon^ perhaps 25 million dieting Americans: 1. The strong, silent type who keep their weight-reducing project to themselves. There are lots of these but you never hear about them. 2 The talkative type that insiMs on discussing diets with anybody and everything, including t h e birds on the boush, The first type gets a scienHf^: diet from his doctor, chews his celery in melancholy solitude. drops a few pounds in lonely silence, and then gets sirk of the whole business because "\\ho cares?" Soon he'is p u t t i n g whipped cream on his pork chops again and getting fatter than ever. The next day i bragged to another a c q u a i n t a n c e for another hour. The result: 'Another pound gone. ' Every day sinrp then I have hrapfjeri.. . . bragged , . . and brag?d about my d i e t i n g to any one I know or have b?en introduced to. But to brag ynu don't have to have anyone around you know. J u s t slop/a stranger, ask him for T m a t c h . \Vhen he reaches into his pockrt for it. grab him by the lapel and hold on f i r m l y until he h a ~ heard your Ftory. This has worked so well t h a t I now tip the scales at 182--just 22 pounds down and still losing. The second type starts out the same way. But he doesn't lose in- erest. After losing a few pounds, he starts in to brag. "I used to be as p l u m p as a railroad roundhouse," he says. 'And now already I am beginning p look like the Eiffel Tower." The more he brags the more be vants trp Ipse; the more he loses hi* more he w a n t ? to brag. As I say, I feel I discovered t h i s myself. I hit the scales at 204 bo- j fore I decided to do a n y t h i n g about it: I got a diet from my dor- tor, read all the books on the- sub! ject, and hung- a picture of ihe The way \ figure if, bragging is the only weight-losing exercise. Doctors say you can't permanently take off fat through exercise. but they overlook bragging.

My neighbors tell me I'm ton strict with him, but I fee! t h a t boys his age need discipline. Of course, a f t e r such an epi:.ode he 1 has to give up the use of the car for awhile. 1 am not merely curious a b o u t ' the boy's activities; I ha*, e a deep concern that he should be in t h e ' proper places, and with the proper . Associates. Am I being overzcal- ous? ; MRS. A. L. P. I Answer: Your snn has reStherl the point in his life where you . must exercise diplomacy, tact, patience and trust in dealing w i t h , him. Eighteen is no longer c h i l d - ; hood--in fact, you must realise : t h a t it Is the age at which the RO\ : eminent considers him ok! nnoucli to be a soldier, sailor, m a r i n e or airman, as the case may be. While your worry over his a c t i v i t i e s is i commendable and undorstanriinj:, '· it must be tempered w i t h the r c n - : lization that your son i? a m a n , en- tilled to more privilege t h a n was accorded him as a boy, and c?r- i tain]\«-».deserving of more confidence. If lie has been well brought up to t h i s point--and your letter cer- l a i n l y indicates a f i n e home background--there is almost no po??- s i b i l i t y t h a t he will stray from the p a t h ret by his mural teachinc. Furthermore, since you know his* friend?, nnd approve of them, and know generally t h e places he frequents, you may he sure his behavior is good. Believe me, if he. engaged in any a c t i v i t y not in ar- eordnncp w i t h your teachings, you would hear of it! An 18-ycaj-nlr? boy (or g i r l ) should not bo expected to give a m i n u t e - h y - m i n u t c description ni an evening's da i ing.
