Happiness is democratic. Laughter is not based on mo-
netary value. Friendship must be earnednot bought. Love
is as popular on one side of the tracks as it is on the oth-
er... ihe fact is wealth often dissipates the essential quali-
ties of joy; simplicity and sincerity. Luxuries do not guaran-
tee joy... On New Year's Eve you'll frequently find more
honest happiness at beer parties than in champagne sprees
...The suostance of joy is the ability to appreciate what
you have. It Is one of life's strange ironies that having
everything ma>'tes It difficult to appreciate anything.
. The vibrations of merriment have been stilled when dawn
tints the sky. What stirred the mind and provoked an excited
response just a few hours beforeis almost forgotten. The en-
chantment of a memorable night has almost vanished... The
harsh chords Of a million sounds are replaced by a hushed
charm. Streets that were clogced with humanity take on signs
of normalcy. Tht/j are crumpled paper hats in the gutters and
strips of tinsel rioe with the winds... You can spot seme merry-
makers in subwaysfaces etched with evidences of weariness.
There is nothing that seems as bleak as the end of a festival.
It is like the end of a love affair... The Joyous binge has ended.
Those who danced and sang and laughed and drank too much
re reaching their home. The firecracker activity of the night
has been conquered by the blessed opiate of sleep.
The horns avd confetti, the music and noisethese are the
frills of the annual celebration. New Year carnivals symbolize
the Spirit of Hope. It is humanity's way of reassuring Itself
that the desire for happiness will survive the prophets of doom.
It is the promise that the future will be carved In the image
of our faithnot fear. And It is a ringing challenge to those
who would forever destroy mankind's brief opportunity for mo-
ments of bliss... Only with such faith in the future and hope
within ourselves can we make a reality of the classic greeting;

); Eisenhower's Success
By Stewart Alsop
.WASHINGTON. It is astonishing to return
from a three-month Journey of observation
abroad to find a great many people convinced
that General of the Army Dwight D. Eisen-
hower's mlsasn in Europe has been a failure.
The lmprefllon of a total lack of any real ac-
compllshmerMIn Europe, of the whole European
defense effeS bogged down in confusion and
inertia, seeH to be almost universal. Yet it
is simply rtafirue.
The truth is that Eisenhower has scored a
downright surtling success.
it is hardly- surprising that most Americans
should be unaware of what the Eisenhower mis-
sion Is really accomplishing. Until very recent-
ly, the European defense leaders themselves had
no idea how much was really being, done.
These men came to the recent defense talks
in Rome In a mood of near despair, miserably
reluctant to ask their governments to make the
greater effort which is required In the period
Eisenhower's brilliant deputy, Gen. Alfred
Oruenther, altered this whole atmosphere of
gloom at a single stroke.
At a secret briefing he showed the European
leaders in hard terms what had already been
accomplished. He described how much more
could be accomplished in the near future with
a determined effort
And when tie 'tmd finished he left the Euro-
peans convinced that the job of building a real
defense of Western Europe could be done, and
ready to get on with the Job.
Consider, first* .what has already been done.
As of today. Elsenhower has under his com-
mand some 2tJ divisions, the great majority al-
ready organized in conditions of combat readi-
He has a functioning, rational supply system
for these division*), and a still inadequate but
growing tactical air force.
Almost this whole by no means contemptible
little army has been created In less than twelve
months, as It were out of thin air.
When Eisenhower arrived on the European
scene he found no more than seven divisions
worthy of the name. Even these divisions exist-
ed in part on paper.
They had no real tactical air support, And
they were scattered about in tactically mean-
ingless positions, often with their supply depots
between them and the potential enemy.
In brief, there was simply no real defense In
Western Europe at all. and every European know
What has already been accomplished can be
summed up In a single sentence.
The Soviets cannot now launch a surprise at-
tack in Europe.
A year ago, the Red army was In a position
to lunge forward at the word of command.
Without a day's preparation. Soviet forces could
have started a raold. virtually unopposed march
to the Atlantic. This is no longer so.
The existing NATO forces constitute more
ground strength than the Kremlin has available
in attack position in Eastern Germany and else-
This means, to quote one estimate from a
highly expert source, that a full two months of
preoaratlon and reinforcement would be requir-
ed before a successful Soviet offensive could be
These preparations would of course be detect-
ed very soon, well before the fatal hour struck.
The importance of this change in the Euro-
pean military situation is absolutely funda-
It means that for the first time since the war
Europeans can begin to feel some sense of se-
curity not for the whole future certainly

WASHINGTON. Here are some New Year's resolutions re-

President Truman Resolved that I will apply the rule of
George Washington to all my staff namely, those bearing gifts
to public officials should deposit them with tne State Depart-
ment until after they leave office.
Senator McCarthy Resolved that I wlil quit pinning the

Gen. Harry Vaughan Resolved to put all Influence ped-
dlers In the deep-freeze.
Senator Kefauver Resolved to keep all rackets on the ten-
Lamar Caudle Resolved to travel only by train.
Senator McKellar of Tenn. Resolved to limit my fighting
spirit to public Issues and leave unsuspecting callers alone.
Frank McKinney - Chairman of the Democratic National

fluence-peddling as the other people I put on the grill before my

CRISIS OF 1952
Most Important prediction the American people want for
the coming year Is whether 1952 will bring peace or war.
My prediction is that 1952 will bring no wcrld war; neither^
will it bring complete peace. I
Intermittent hostilities will continue in Indc-China; perhapl
in Iran, possibly the Egypt-Palestlne-Syilan .rea.
More Important than these small, isolated wars, however, Is
a test of the American people which the Kremlin has been wait*
ing for ever since 1945.
After VE day, Kremlin planners predicted the United States
would suffer a serious depression from the end of war orders,
then would proceed to fall apart at the .seams.
It would not be necessary to declare war on the U.S., pre
dieted the men of Moscow. The American people would be so
disorganised, so divided by Internal bitterness, so shorn of lead-
ership that Communism would merely pick up the pieces.
This did not happen. It did not happen largely because the
United States proceeded to exert wise and difficult leadership
in the rest of tbe world through the Marshall Plan; through
the North Atlantic Pact; and through military aid.
However, diplomatic observers, who have the advantage of
looking at us from a distance, begin to detect some of the things
that Moscow wanted in 1946 rumblings of bitterness. Internal
strife, lack of confidence, growing isolation, disillusionment.
The year 1961 witnessed devastating debates which split the
nation Into bitter factions the deba'.e over MacArthur, the
debate over an ambassador to the Vatican, the shock at income-
Even before these wounds have healed, the nation now faces
a new and always difficult debate over who will be the next
President of the United States.
During the coming year names will be called and passions
will flare. *"
During 1952, also. American leadership in the rest of the
world will be slowed to a snail's pace. We will be too busy with
our own problems.
That is why diplomatic observers are worried.
That is why the Kremlin is reported matching the U.S. more
Intently than ever.
That is why the year 1952 may be the most crucial since
Pearl Harbor. *
THE AMERICAN CREED
Here is a resolution written In 1917 by William Tyler Page,
former clerk-of the House of Representatives, which all Americans
might keep In mind for 1952:
"I believe in the United States of America as a government
of the people, for the people, by the people; whose just powers
are derived from the consent of the governed: a democracy in
a republic; a sovereign nation of many rovereign states; a per-
fect union, one and Inseparable: established upon those prin-
ciples of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which Am-
erican patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes.
"I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it;
to support its Constitution: to obey its laws; to respect its flag;
and to defend It against all enemies."
It was definitely an order from Moscow that put the four
American filers in Hungary on trial for espionage.
The Moscow order came as a surprise to the Hungarian for-
eign office, which had Just indicated to the American embassy
that the fliers would be released.
Averell Harriman still hopes General Elsenhower oan be per-
suaded to run as a Democrat If Sena1 or Tsrft gets the Repub-
"-~n nomination. Harriman recently talked to Eisenhower in
Swedish Intelligence has learned that the Russians have im-
prisoned a Swedish diplomat who's been missing for six years.
His name is Raoul Wallenberg and he's been absent since HHS

General Eisenhower is boiling mad at the Belgian govern-
ment for holding up plans to increase Atlantic Pact defenses in
1952. Ike has had two tough-talking sessions with the Belgian
representative in the past two weeks, has made It plain that
Belgium must do twice as much as it is doing or else.
President Syngman Rhree has warned John Foster Dulles
he will never consent to any truce which permanently divides
South and North Korea. Rhee told Dulles that his troops will
never rest until the last Communist has been driven out of all

Of UMT Measure
Progress of the Universal Mil-
lltary Training bill now before
'Congress Is being watched with
^Interest by women of the Amer-
ican Legion Auxiliary through-
out the nation, according to Mrs.
George Feist. Legislative Chair-
man of American Legion Auxi-
liary. Department of Panama
The bill represents more than
thirty years of effort by The
American Legion and Auxiliary
to establish Universal Military!
Training as the foundation for
i an adequate and democratic na-
tional security system for the
United States, Mrs, Feist said. It
is the result of a bill passed last
year which created a commis-
sion to report a UMT plan to
Congress .This report is embodied
In th new bill on which hear-
ings were scheduled to start Jan.
"The strongest step toward se-
cure peace which our country
could take would be to provide
military training for every abled-
bodled young man." said Mrs.
Feist. "This would show the ag-
gressor nations that the United
States intends to maintain de-
fenses strong enough to assure
their defeat snould they ever at-
tack the free world and. If any-
thing can, will turn their thlnk-
Inc Into more peaceful channels.
"UMT Is a long-range plan,
designed to create a large force |
of trained reserves .constantly re-
plendished, ready immediately to
defend America. It would place
every young man In the reserved
forres, not Just the patriotic few
who have been called to duty in
the Korean War. and would train
them for the highly technical
duties of modem war. It would
provide a broad, democratic basis
for a national security system
which, by Its very existence,
would make dictators more eager
to talk peace than plan war.
"In Its present form, the UMT
calls for six months training at
the age of eighteen, to be follow-
ed by seven and one-half years

DiSalle said the three-city1

He recalled that communitv
pricing was "the best-liked and
most effective" form of price
control used during World War
II He said It appealed to house-
wives because it gave them "ex-

liked it because it reduced their
bookkeeping chores, he added.
DiSalle said the program has
the "further advantage'' of be-
ing the easiest kind of price con-
trol to enforce.

* Looking at a hand In a news-
paper is not quite the same thing
as holding it at the bridge table.!
As a player, you Ret only one
chance to make the right play;
Bs a reader, you get as many
chances as you want.
Even so, here's a little chal-
lenge. Imagine that you hold the;
East cards and that your partner
opens the king of hearts against
the contract of three spades. Find;
the right defense. Take as many
tries as you like; if you find the
correct defense you're one player)
In ten thousand.
While you're thinking, let's see
what happens if the defense Is a
matter of routine. Hearts are
continued, and South ruffs the
thi.d round. South draws three
rounds of trumps (two rounds of
trumps would be slightly more
expirt, but it doesn't matter in
this case', cashes the top clubs
and gives up a club.
Maybe the defenders come to
life so that West manages to win
the third club trick 'East drops

up before you read any farther.
East should overtake the king

Simple. Isn't it? But also quite
devastating This defense holds
8outh to only eight tricks.
West plays the nine of dia-
monds, forcing dummy to win the
second trick with the queen of
diamonds. 8outh cannot prevent
West from gaining the lead with
a heart. And West will then lead
the Jack of diamonds, giving the
defenders two tricks in that suit.
The defense thus surely takes
two hearts, two diamonds, and a
club, setting the contract.
Incidentally, don't dismiss this
defense as an impossible play

French expert, actually made the
play in a European tournament

Late Point-4 Administrator Saw
Earth's Potential Barely Touched
In a special article for Okla-
homa papers, Columnist Drew
Pearson termed the late Dr.
Henry G. Bennett who launched
the Point 4 program m Latin
America and elsewhere a "Mis-
sionary For Democracy."
The homely philosophy of Dr.
Bennett, who died in a blinding
snowstorm in Iran during Christ-
mas week, was outlined to per-
sonal friends Just before he left
"The plain fact is. we have to
show the world a better life If w,e
want to survive," said the fa-
mous Oklahoma educator. "Two-
thirds of those who live in what
we call the 'Free World" are hun-
gry, sick and desperately poor.
They are rebelling against those
conditions, and the Communists
are taking advantage of their
ignorance and discontent.
"What we're doing in the point
4 program Is to show them there
is a way out and it Isn't the
Communist way. We can show
them how to double food pro-
duction and wipe out disease.
Ours is a program for people who
are barefoot, hungry and sick."
One of Dr. Bennett's last-acts
before leaving on his fatal in-
spection trip was to advocate a
revolutionary land-tenure policy.
He told a world conference, "the
farmer must be able to own his
own land or use the land he tills
under fair conditions and terms
of tenure. He must have access
to reasonable credit and modern
When State Department as-
sociates spoke wearily of the
world's uncertain future, Ben-
nett replied: "We haven't touch-
ed the possibilities. The Good
Lord has given us an earth ca-
pable of producing far beyond
the fancies and dreams of men,
if we'll use our brains and our
heart and conscience to shan
what we have with our neigh-
bors around the world."

This is an ultimatum from the Kremlin In a country wlr

Pravda does not describe the nature t the stagnation which

act erzide as lead in the pants) which common'v afflicts some of
our athletes. In baseball, at least, a popular prescription to to

THE BEST ICE SKATER
Pravda's reference to winter sports may be enlightening. It
may mean the Soviets will show up for ihe snow and Ice Olym-
pics at Oslo, Norway, in February, although their official com-
mittee has only made its bid to the summer games. Not much is
really known about the Reds as athletes. The Iron Curtain ap-
plies to sports, too. '
What do you suppose they think they can gain by hiding a
weight lifter, a shotputter, or a woman Javelin thrower? These
surely must be the most exasperating people Odd ever created.
The unmannerly Yakov Malik completely Ignored a most cour-
teous letter from this department requesting an Interview on the
subject; his successor, Semen Tsarapkln. has shown no greater
familiarity with Emily Post's best .seller.
Of course, we do know considerable aoout Marie Isakova,. who

fact that she Is authentically topnotch Invites the belief the So-
viets will compete at Oslo. There is little doubt that Maria would
come away with the championship and it may be that Pal Joey
has some other skaters and skiers of high ability. Russia has
never competed In the Olympics.
The Pravda editorial. In spite of the admonitory note, did
not take a dark view of Russia's prospects In international sports,
claiming 32 world records (naming none) and 435 all-union rec-
ords, all created In the past 12 months, .nd calling attention to
"more than 800 stadiums, 13 institutes of higher physical learn-
ing, and 37 of secondary rank." Adding: "In our country great
state significance is attributed to the development of physical
culture and sport."
ITS OLD STUFF TO THEA
Pravda's editorial blast insisting that the Ruskies get out
and hustle up a mess of world championships was new only as to
source. In 1948 the Central Committee of the Communist party
issued a similar directive and when the Central Committee
speaks the commisars and the peasants Jump.

eight-hour day and six-day week leaves little time for specialis-
ed training, there were rumors, seemingly with substance, that
the better prospects were being professionalized in one way or
another, by gifts, preferred positions and mock labor hours.
