The Seal if the United states mails have done their usual Good Job every family in this area has by this time received a few sheets of Christmas seals with a letter from the Sullivan county tuberculosis association. Some of those seals May have already appeared on letters As they should. Some of the recipients have Al ready sent in the contribution which the seals ask for. But Many others Are still lying on the desk or on the piano with a Promise of ill tend to that and there is danger that some of them May be forgotten. Everyone knows the Christmas Seal and what it stands for. Tuberculosis is still one of Man s great enemies. It still takes constant fighting and it is this fight that the tuberculosis associations Are carrying on All Over the nation. It is a fight that has shown results which should encourage us to keep it up rather than let up. The Campaign against tuberculosis carried on by the tuberculosis associations is a sort of cold War it is to a great degree a containment program. That is to say it is an educational program to Stop the spread of tuberculosis. The Little Seal is an annual reminder that this educational program cannot go on without financial help. The Money contributed by people who use the Christmas Seal makes the educational program possible. Part of it is used nationally but most of it at the local level. It maintains a local office and one full time worker who carries out the pro Gram by lectures consultations and the distribution of literature. Tuberculosis is fought by educating the people How to avoid contagion. It is fought by showing the people who have a Case of tuberculosis in the family what precautions to take. It is fought by giving people the chances to have Chest a rays and discover the disease in the Early stages. Nowadays we hear a great Deal about new and unpronounceable drugs which May prove to be a specific cure for tuberculosis. It will be a wonderful thing if this happens. But meanwhile the work of education must go on. It is not dramatic work. We cannot Point out results be cause it is impossible to say there goes a Man who would have contracted . If he had not Learned in time How to avoid contagion. But there is moral certainty such cases exist. There is moral certainty that the tuberculosis association is carrying on a great work both in preventing the spread of tuberculosis and to a limited in helping the poor who Are its victims. There is moral certainty that the Money you contribute by Way of pay for the seals or a Bond goes to work in a great humanitarian cause. That ought to be enough for everyone to want to con tribute As much As he can. Real service merry go round Edson s column by Drew Pearson Harry Truman told Dwight d. Eisenhower and vice versa is known directly Only to the two men themselves. But what is known is what president Truman told intimates he said to Ike. Both men were obviously nervous before and after their interview. One Friend who talked to Truman just before he saw Eisenhower noted that he looked fidgety and dropped some papers. Eisenhower also looked nervous and wiped perspiration from his Barren brow after the conference. The version which the president gave one of his closest friends also indicates that the two men were a Little tense at first. But he broke the ice by telling Ike something like this i be been in politics for 40 years. Sometimes you win and sometimes you lose. That s politics. Sometimes you have to say some harsh things in politics because everyone s out to win. But let s forget All that. The Only important thing is the future. I want to help you in every Way. I want you to have As much assistance As we can give you Between now and january 20. I Only wish i could have been briefed be fore i took this Job. President Roosevelt s death hit me like a Thunderbolt. I did t even know he was ill. I had Only talked politics with him and had t even attended a Cabinet meeting. I Don t want you to go through Truman pointed to a sign on his desk which read the Buck stops every government official has a Boss to whom he can pass the the presi he said according to the account Given a Friend. But when it gets to the president he has no one to pass the Buck on to. The Buck stops Here second conference or. Truman had also prepared for the presi Dent elect a series of Loose Leaf notebooks con Taining copies of All his executive orders re ports on defense production and charts show ing exactly the amounts of production achieved in every strategic material. He told friends that he hoped these would be of value to Eisenhower and he certainly wished some one had prepared such reports for him when he took office in 1945. When Eisenhower and Truman appeared in the Cabinet room a minute or so later they were smiling and appeared to be congenial. At this second and enlarged meeting Secretary of state Dean Acheson did most of the talking. One important Point he made was that unless Eisenhower made some reassuring state ment about continuing the present policy for Europe the governments of France and Italy might fall. Eisenhower interrupted at this Point to say he had already made one such statement but he did not elaborate As to what statement he referred to. Acheson also said he was unhappy about the split Between the United states Canada France and England Over the Indian proposal on korean prisoners of War but said he Felt that our differences could be though he did not indicate any approval of the Indian proposal. Nato meeting on schedule he also discussed the december 15 meeting of the North Atlantic i act nations originally scheduled to make important decisions on army strength for the next two years. Britain and France want to proceed with the meeting As scheduled on december 15, though because of the changeover of administrations in Washington no important decisions will be made. Secretary of the Treasury Snyder gave a re port on the finances of our allies warning especially of the economic predicament of France and Italy. England he Felt was not in such bad shape. Secretary of defense Lovett talked chiefly about Korea and defense production. The lat Ter was the Only Domestic question discussed during the entire conference. Neither president Truman nor general Eisenhower did much talking during the Confer ence. It was purely a briefing session with Little Opportunity or necessity to talk. When Eisenhower came out of the White House the grim and irritable manner noted by reporters was probably because he was sur rounded with newsmen. He had expected a military aisle through which to walk and re marked that he thought things had been outrageously handled. By Peter Edson development of atomic Power for private Industrial use is now being investigated by the u. S. Atomic Energy commission in half a dozen different projects. Dec first authorized private Industrial research on atomic Power development last april in a series of four contracts with four teams of two companies each. They were 1. The Pacific Gas and elec tric co., and the Bechtel co., an Industrial engineering and contracting firm of san Francisca. 2. The Commonwealth Edison co., and the Public service co. Of Northern Illinois Looth of Chicago. 3. Monsanto chemical co., and the Union electric co. Of Missouri both of St. Louis. 4. Dow chemical co., and de troit Edison co., both of Detroit. Just recently the Dow chem ical Detroit Edison contract was modified to bring in 11 More ing companies from the North Eastern United states. Among them Are Power companies of new England new York new Jersey Wisconsin Cincinnati Cleveland Toledo and Philadel phia. In substance these research the supposedly Best brains of Public Utility engineering and chemical Compa a challenging assignment. It is to see if they can devise new better and cheaper methods for the production of fissionable materials for government use with the production of electric Power generated by atomic Energy As a by product. Uranium production makes heat at the present time in the government owned plants for the production of uranium and plutonium vast quantities of Coal and steam generated or Hydro electric Power Are consumed.

Maul tote there is absolutely no truth in the Rumor that president tru Man after he retires in january will buy property and make his Home in Texas. It in fact it will be interesting to see whether he continues to patronize Florida with Hla Vaca Tion business. It the vacuum from election Day to March 4th was shortened to election Day to january 20th, but there is just As much fuss Over it. Maybe the new president ought to take Over on nov. 6th. Little Johnny with Good logic thought the ballroom meant the gymnasium. It a modern Home is a garage with sleeping accommodations attached and a modern school is a gymnasium with a few class rooms attached. It the number of scary murder stories on radio and television a decried. But the significant thing is the number of Nice people. Dear Sweet ladies who enjoy such entertainment. It do prospective missionaries for the asians get special courses in How to explain the atom and Hydrogen bomb it whether the election had any thing to do with it is your guess but two weeks after it you can buy a Packard car for it used to Cost under the Truman administration. It one Hundred years ago the worst Snow storm could not Cut off the heat and the Light. It some people think that presi is a waste product that must be racy the United states Tariff try from 22vi per dumped. In the plants this heat from the atomic reactors or piles would be used to generate steam. The steam would be used to generate elec tric Power. The plutonium or uranium manufactured in the reactor would then be sold to the government.

Such a move would have this Side of the Atlantic. If in can dollars. Take the Tariff on Tlle powerful backing of Western the meantime the duty on Wool thing. And it s doubtful if Eisenhower would care about holding the reins on a Steed that is Given to taking the bit in his Teeth and running away. It it s hard to get natural color Back into a picture that has faded away. It or. Taft says if he had been nominated he could have car ried All the states Eisenhower carried. Now Robert be your age.

The storm proved How dependent civilized Man has become on that mysterious Power which Ben Franklin brought Down from the Clouds and Thomas Edison harnessed. It makes one think of what would happen to this world if All electric Power were Cut off completely for As much As a month. Elec tric is Man s servant but a servant upon whom Man is absolutely dependent. But what we started to say was that if the rest of us who were inconvenienced will remember the storm we should also remember those upon whom it called for unusual and heroic service. The workers of the Power company and the Telephone company had no cheering throngs when they ploughed through Snow drifts mounted poles and repaired the wires. It was just a Job but a Job that demanded that they forego sleep and hot food. Unless i miss my guess dictation to the White House by the leaders of organized labor has Denham former general counsel of the Norb. Mac and Dwight it s just leaked out that the Only Man who can talk Turkey to general Macarthur and away with George an eleventh hour plea to the proud Macarthur to let bygones be bygones and endorse his for Mer military aide Dwight Eisenhower for president. But Macarthur Shook his head sat sullen and silent in his Waldorf Tower until the last election returns were in. Only a few insiders know about general Kenny s last minute Appeal which he made three Days before the election. He was put up to it by new York s governor Tom Dewey who had already tried to win Macarthur Over to the Eisenhower bandwagon through such gop stalwarts As sex president Herbert Hoover and House Leader Joe Martin. Both had failed to heal the old rift Between Macarthur and his onetime aide. However the Man who has always been Able to Tell off Macarthur and still make him like it is the runt sized weather beaten Kenny Macarthur s air commander in the South Pacific. So Dewey dispatched the retired air Force general to Macarthur s Waldorf Tower apartment to make a final Appeal. Urged Kenny Why won t you come out for Macarthur spoke grandiloquent by of his obligation to his Loyal followers who were still supporting him for president. Those California snorted Kenny. If you string along with that gang you could t be elected the Blunt talking air Force general argued pleaded and cajoled. He said it s Only a five minute walk from Here to Eisenhower s suite at the com and it s Only a five minute walk from the Commodore replied Macarthur. That ended the conversation. Probably the breach Between the two men now never will be healed. Gop and the South Eisenhower s top advisers have hatched smart strategy for dealing with democrats in the Senate. Through it they expect to control a majority of Southern democrats in the sen ate for at least two years possibly longer. Their strategy is to play Ball with the South Ern democrats and not attempt to build up the Republican party in the deep South. Ike s advisers figure that if they butter up men like George and Russell of Georgia Eastland and Plennis of Mississippi they will cooperate on Eisenhower s legislative program. However they will employ a completely Dif Ferent strategy in the Border states plus Florida. For in these ten Nessee Maryland and either rolled up sizable margins or won. Shielding would be provided by steel tanks filled with Sand and water. Electric Power from atomic Energy is now being produced on a Small scale at the dec reactor Center in Utah. One experimental breeder reactor produces the demos Are in a very bad fix but Don t sell them Short in 56.

It now employs ment. Side glances ll-3-f introduction to the subject of virus pneumonia that it shall be quoted at some length. When i came Down with virus writes mrs. T., i had been Over the worst part of though one of the relatives of penicillin aurem Ciri has been claimed by some to be useful. Long recovery period one of the most annoying my cold for two weeks then i things about virus pneumonia is started with a gradually rising the fact that Complete recovery temperature and after a few takes so Long. It is True that the end of the acute illness Wui often show some changes still present. This probably accounts for the usual Story Given by those who had it that they do not feel right for weeks or months. Since this is the Case those who have had virus pneumonia should realize that convalescence is a Long drawn out process and ouf our Way i know i got a bad report card but forbidding me to the won t help How am i Ever going to do any takes so Long. It is True hours i began to break out All very few victims of the disease they should not expect to regain around my lips with fever Blis die from it but an a Ray film their usual vigor and feeling otters. The same night my Tern of the lungs taken weeks after Well being for a very Long time. Pesature went very High and then i broke out into severe sweating and chills. The next few Days were the same. At the time we were broke and i did t have Money for a doctor and not knowing what was wrong i let it go for four Days. But after i started cough ing up blood i made up my mind that Money or no Money i bet Ter find out what was wrong with me. Now after several months i still have to be care Ful and not Strain too much and i feel tired All the the letter quoted brings up several important things about virus or atypical pneumonia. This disease like most colds and influenza is caused by a virus which is a tiny living organism too Small to see under the Micro scope. As in mrs. T s Case it often starts like an Ordinary cold with cough running eyes and nose and perhaps some fever which May not be noticed at first. Neglect is a dangerous thing and mrs. Is Lucky that the effects were not even worse. Certainly strict bed rest from the beginning is most desirable and this is particularly True
