In the first place, Captain Crom- melin 's blast against service fication and its various sequels are not merely episodes in the strug- gle between the Navy and the Air Force. They are alSo symptoms of a bitter split within the Navy it- self, between the sea officers, led by the chief of naval operations, Admiral Louis Denfeld. and the naval aviators, led by the Pacific fleet commander, Admiral A. W. Radford. In wartime, the naval aviators i met only the inferior Japanese air forest and from this experience conceived an exceedingly dubious theory of the potentialities of naval aviation in land warfare. Postwar, the naval aviators for a time dom- inated naval policy. To put it blunt- ly, their plans for extensive en- croachment on the functions of the land-based Air Force offered the best chance of building the vast naval establishment that all ad- mirals, battleship or other, instinc- tively desire. Thus all admirals, battleship or other, instinctively j desire. Thus all admirals supported j the aviators. THIS SITUATION was, in Itself, gravely disquieting. After all, the primary mission of the Navy is, and must always be, maintaining control of the seas. From the end!

Top-ranking aides who reported this today said Woods has set as a goal the removal of restrictions from 40 such areas each week "until the job is done." The accelerated pace of decon- trols results, in Woods own words, from an "assumption" that rents in most smaller localities have "come back to normal." Just how long it will take to lift ceilings in all such areas, no one would say. But housing authorities released figures showing that controls now have been lifted from an even 500 areas most of them in areas having less than popula- tion in states scattered across the country. A summary of decontrol activi- ties since the federal rent act became effective in April showed that a total of dwelling units were involved in the action.

While funds were lavished on such projects as the giant carrier, the Joint Research and Development board had to protest vigorously against the inadequacy of the anti- submarine research effort. Even now, this fundamental submarine problem has not been really solved. The passage of the service uni- fication" bill, and the subsequent brilliant work of General of the Army Dwight D. Eisenhower, had the effect of forcing the Navy back into its primary mission. The job John Coleman of La Crosse planned to take Larson back to La Crosse today, as soon as legal formalities attending his surrender could be met. Larson has been in jail here since his arrest a week ago.

The United States yesterday blasted Russian conduct in eastern Germany in two of the sharpest statements ever aimed at the So- viets by the West.

With eastern Berlin chosen as capital of this communist regime, an obvious Western counter-move could be to establish west Berlin as the 12th state of the west Ger- man republic which has its capital at Bonn. Such action also would serve, of- ficials said, to "protect" the western Berlin inhabitants. In his statement, Webb flatly re- jected Russia's charge that the West is responsible for splitting Germany by sponsoring the Bonn government. "Obstinate Soviet opposition" to Western proposals, he said, is the real reason for the East-West split, Webb further accused Moscow of Captain Crommelin says cripplesjto get our defenses, the strength ratio be- The jury acquitted her of seven tween us and the Soviets must be other counts 01 treason, at least ten to one.

It also has been learned that the state believes Dr. McLoone was shot just outside La Crosse on Highway 16 after he had been forced to drive there at gunpoint. The shooting, it was believed, oc- cured as the doctor attempted to flee. Authorities revealed at the time of the murder that persons uniden- tified had seen someone dragging a body to the spot where it was found. A trail of blood was found at the roadside.

And, the publication says, patent medicine makers don't know the cold cure secret either. Nor do those people who always ply the cold sufferer with ad- vice. Apparently, you just can't (underline can't) cure it. It runs its course. The magazine's consultant says in his article, however, that it's a pretty safe bet that the best way to ease a common cold attack is to rest quietly in bed. There are a few ways to ease cold symptoms temporarily. And, it seems well established that an oncoming cold can some- times be aborted by "reasonable doses" of alcohol. This, the magazine says is because "it causes peripheral vasodilatation and re-establishes circulation in chilled cutaneous and mucosal surfaces." In other words, it brings a rush of blood into cold skin or nose lining. So, when a doctor does some- thing for your cold, he just eases the acute symptoms, such as headache (with and burning sensations in the nose or throat (by moisture with steam inhalations, or common table salt solution syringing.) But, the "sane and effective is to stay warm and relaxed in bed, especially if fever is present. It "diminishes the severity of the common cold, limits its spread to others and reduces the frequency of com- plications." Nose drops? Gargles? Volatile inhalers? Diet? Water-drinking? Salves? The Journal says their benefits are generally exag- gerated. The gargle, for example. The Journal says "although popular with the public, gargling has little therapeutic utility. A num- ber of investigators find that gargled material will not pass beyond the third molar tooth because the act of gargling pro- duces a restrictive influence." Rizzuto filed to Furillo.
