In brief, the active reconnais- sance of this continent by the So- viet equivalent of a wing of TU- 4s, or perhaps two wings, moved into new bases on Kamchatka, across the Bering Strait from Alaska. Since then, the air recon- naissance has been going forward. Four claimed contrails, which are the vapor trails left by air- craft flying at altitude, have been sighted in recent months. Of these claimed sightings, two have been dismissed after careful investiga- tion as probably the result of spe-1 cial atmospheric conditions and cloud effects. But two others, one j on the north Alaskan coast and one in northern Canada, are held to have been the genuine traces of Soviet air reconnaissance mis- sions. And the Alaskan sighting, at least, is further held to have been confirmed by the evidence of I the radar net. More Information Needed This development both is and is not a cause for deep concern. To begin with the sedative arguments, this air reconnaissance of our con- tinent which the Soviets have now started is only the equivalent of what we have been doing for some time past. Our long-range aircraft have been flying reconnaissance operations on the Siberian coast since before Korea: and they have gone in far enough for intercep- tion to be attempted on more than one occasion. Equally, there can be very little doubt that the Navy Privateer shot down over the Bal- tic a couple of years ago was also on reconnaissance duty. j In the case of the best-confirm-1 ed Soviet venture into our that in northern is; even some doubt about whether j the Russian four-motored bomber passed the off-shore line where itj had a right to fly.

In short, even though Cana- dian territory was certainly violat- ed if the second probable sighting genuine, there is nothing im- mediately warlike in this new de- velopment. On the other hand, the develop- ment is a grim warning; and it is reasonable to be concerned be- cause the warning is not being acted on.

BARRETT WASHINGTON Hicken- looper (R-Iowa) today announced a new drive to ban sending troops to Europe without the consent of Congress. As East-West tension increased in Germany, Hickenlooper said a strong effort will be made to write such a reservation into Senate ap- proval of peace treaties with West Germany. The Iowa senator, a member of the Foreign Relations Committee, told a reporter he believed the treaties could be interpreted ax giving the President power to send more troops abroad at will. Chairman Connally (D-Tex) of the Senate Foreign Relations Com- mittee said the treaties carry no such provision or implication. He added the German pactn should not be used to revive the troops-for-Europe issue, subject of tie three-month "great debate" in the Senate last year. Sen. Wiley senior Re- publican on the committee, agreed with Connally. Collin, Cilltd The Foreign Relations Commit- tee today called Gen. J. Lawton Collins, Army chief of staff, for its fourth day of hearings on treaties. The committee expects to conclude sessions next Tuesday or Wednesday and send the pacts to the Senate floor before July 7. The treaties would end the Allied occupation of West Germany restore almost full sovereignty. to that nation. They would bring West Germany into a single-uniform Eu- ropean army, tied closely to the North Atlantic Pact forces now headed by Gen. Matthew B. Ridj- way. They must be ratified by nations involved. The administration is teekinf prompt Senate approval in the hopes this would set an for the legislative bodies of European countries. The Senate was locked in bitter argument for months last year over whether the President could send more troops to Europe with- out congressional approval. The Senate finally passed a reso- lution approving the sending of four more divisions, as planned by President Truman, but indicated the Senate preferred that congres- sional consent would be required to send any more. Six now are stationed in Europe. Ntw As new debate on the loomed, Communists clamped tight "security zone" around Ber- lin. Police were ordered to shoot to kill violators. Hickenlooper said the proposed reservation on the troops issue would provide that the treaties in no way authorize the President to send American troops to an inter- national army without the consent of Congress. He said this would be more bind- ing upon the President than last year's Senate resolution because it would be, in effect, a condition to putting the treaties into operation.

Today at the American Medical Associa- tion convention he took time he always seems to have to tell secrets for health and long life. In London, he began, he was talking with Lord Horaer, as fa- mous in British melicine as Fish- bein is here. Dr. Fishbein con- gratulated Lord Border on looking so well and being so active at 82. "Lord Horder asked me, 'how old are "I'm 62, I said. He leaned over the table and felt my pulse, 'You will live to be 100." I replied, And lord Horder said, 'Because you have imperturbability.' "I've practiced imperturbability since I was 16, I told him. I think a person can practice it." How do you become imperturb- able? "Avoid raising your voice.

But I would hate to see a world where everyone walked away from argu- ments that produced facts by discussion." Dr. Fishbein, whose fame rests partly upon his energetic and sometimes stormy years as former editor of the AMA Journal, then recited "the five lows" for health and longer life. 1. Low blood pressure. 2. Low pulse rate. 3. Low basal metabo- lism, or rate of bodily processes. 4. Low diet, low in total calories. 5. Low threshold for humor.
