Treat or a Treatment?

By ALICE B. SILVER
Associate Editorial Director
HE MAJOR cigarette companies in this
country were given a rather unusual
challenge this week by the annual clinical
congress of the American College of Sur-
geons.
Gathering in Chicago, the surgeons as-
serted that many medical men suspect
some relationship between lung cancer
and cigarette smoking, but no relationship
between cancer and cigar or pipe smoking.
The surgeons pointed out that the major
research projects which have been pub-
lished do not definitely prove the rela-
tionship but it is strongly suggested by
statistical analysis of lung cancer victims.
Consequently the surgeons issued a state-
ment declaring that "In a matter which in-
volves public health to such a large degree,
the tobacco industry has moral obligations
to pay for the research necessary to prove
or disprove the suspected relationship be-
tween smoking cigarettes and lung cancer.

The tobacco companies ought to put up the
money to settle this problem."
Up to this point the bulk of the re-
search has been carried on in univer-
sities which are hard pressed for re-
search funds. A for governmental aid the
Food and Dru4 Administration which
would handle such a case is itself low on
funds and can not be counted on to con-
duct such extensive research.
Clearly the burden of proof or disproof
falls on the cigarette companies themselves.
The crucial question is whether these con-
cerns will feel the "moral obligation" which
the surgeons laid to them. If the compan-
ies refuse, and the odds are they will, we
can not help but draw the conclusion that
in effect business' concept of the public in-
terest is no further advanced than in the
days of Upton Sinclair's The Jungle. But
then, is it at all realistic to ask the cigar-
ette companies to tell us that "Nine Out of
Ten Doctors draw a relationship between
smoking and cancer?"

Italy's Economic Plight

THE ECONOMIC situation in overpopula-
ted Italy at the present is frighteningly
near the boiling point.
Italian printers and printing shop-
workers went on strike Sept. 19 for 24
hours, depriving the nation of newspapers
for two days. The strike, which was call-
ed after negotiations for improved wage
contracts broke down, is a mere curtain
raiser for more serious trouble.
General strikes of industrial workers loom
in the near future. Less than two weeks
ago the government barely averted a gen-
eral strike of possibly millions of workers.
Called by Italy's three largest labor organ-
izations, the" 24-hour work stoppage would
have affected industries ranging from rail-
roads to entertainment. The strike was call-
ed as a climax to labor complaints that in-
dustrial leaders would not agree to negotia-
tions on many labor demands. What the
workers wish is a simplification of methods
by which their total pay is computed. The
Italian government and employers claim
that any change in the present methods
would necessitate a considerable addition to
costs, and therefore would result in reduced
production and increased unemployment.
In a report issued recently by the Parlia-
mentary Commission to Investigate Poverty
in Italy, it was noted that six million people
are existing in complete misery with an
average income of about $40 a month for a
family of four or five. Nearly one million
families are housed four or five to a room, or
in caves, cellars, warehouses and bombed out
barracks. More than three million families
are not able to buy their own native wines
which sell for approximately 15 cents a
quart. Four and one-half million families
cannot afford meat even once a year. Pub-
lie assistance is given two and one-half
million Italians, but this averages less than

five dollars per person yearly, and the total
amount distributed comes to only 70 per
cent of the relief appropriated. The balance
goes to bureaucracy.
The Italian, hoping to escape poverty,
cannot be blamed if the Red Socialist
party of Pietro Nenni appeals more to
him than Premier Giuseppe Pella's pro-
U.S. policy. The impetuous, rebellious
Nenni wants an economic program of to-
tal socialization. The "little" people who
cast their lot with him are not Commun-
ists in the idealogical sense, They seek
only an improved standard of living.
Domestic policies in Italy could stand a
great deal of rennovation, as has been sug-
gested by Premier Pella. Collective bar-
gaining contracts must be enforced. The
Italian employees will not remain subdued
by management any longer. Italy must
extend her land reform program and dis-
tribution of land to the peasants. She
should try to build more houses, encourage
more investment in order to create more
employment and otherwise attempt to make
life more bearable for the Italian poor. If
Italy could trade on more favorable terms
on the U.S. market, this also would help her
economy.
If attempts are not made shortly to
solve these problems, strikes such as those ,
which recently paralyzed all of France,
will envelop Italy. Nenni and his pro-
Communistic followers will take the op-
portunity to see just how much power they
do have.
- Pella's government should take-action im-
mediately to implement the economic re-
forms, or it will be financially impossible
for Italy to support either her people or
NATO and the European Defense Commun-
ity.

DREW PEARSON:
Washington
Merry-Go-Round
WASHINGTON - Ex-President Herbert
Hoover, who stepped out of the White
House just ;1 years ago. came back to the
room where he once held cabinet sessions
and was sworn in the other day as a mem-
ber of the new Commission on Government
Reorganization.
After Justice Harold Burton finished
giving the oath, Hoover suggested that
the first order of business was the elec-
tion of a chairman and was promptly and
unanimously elected to that post. He
then said: .
"I had expected that we would proceed to
elect a vice-chairman at this time, but some'
difficulties have arisen, and if there is no
objection I suggest that we let this go over
until the next meeting."
There was no dissent.
Hoover did not explain what the diffi-
culties were over the vice-chairmanship,
but they threaten to upset the otherwise
peaceful calm of his commission. Here is
the inside story of what has happened.
Hoover had planned to propose Joseph
P. Kennedy, ex-ambassador to England,
as vice-chairman. The vice-chairmanship,
he felt, should go to a Democrat and he
considered Kennedy a good, safe, anti-
Stevenson Democrat. But at the last min-
ute, Sen. Homer Ferguson, Michigan Re-
publican, came to him and said that he
wanted to be vice-chairman.
Ferguson faces a tough political race in
Michigan, probably from Democratic Gov.'
"Soapy" Williams, and he indicated that the
vice-chairmanship of the Hoover Commis-
sion would give him prestige in his re-elec-
tion race.
REPUBLICAN RIVALRYf
HOOVER WAS not too happy about this
because he wanted a Democrat to be
vice-chairman. And he was even more un-
happy when he learned that if a Republi-
can was to be vice-chairman several com-
mission members felt he should be hard-
working Congressman Clarence Brown of
Ohio. the man who actually wrote the re-
organization legislation.
Brown made it evident during the swear-
ing-in ceremony that he has no great love
for his GOP colleague from Michigan.
"Look at him bootlicking those fellows
as if he knew all about reorganization,"
the Ohio Congressman remarked as Fer-
guson posed for photographers with Her-
bert Hoover and Justice Burton. "He
wants that photo to help him in his cam-
paign.
"Yet that fellow." continued Congress-
man Brown. "didn't even read the reor-
ganization bill before he tossed it in the hop-
per."
Brown referred to the fact that he person-
ally had written the government reorgani-
zation bill and given it to Ferguson to in-
troduce in the Senate. 'Tossing a bill into
the hopper refers to placing it into the leg-
islative basket or hopper in front of the
presiding officer's desk in the House or the
Senate.
So Mr. Hoover is unhappily trying to
unravel the question of who becomes his
vice-chairman before his next meeting on
November 16.
NOTE - Actually, there probably wouldj
have been no reorganization commission
without Congressman Brown. Inside fact is
that Eisenhower didn't want one, had ap-
pointed his brother, Arthur Flemming and
Nelson Rockefeller as his own committee to
reorganize the government. But Brown came
to the White House and reminded Ike he
would have to get his reorganization through
Congress; therefore he had better let Con-
gress participate. Ike yielded.

MAN ON A TIGHTROPE, with Frederic
March.
ELOQUENCE about man's desire to be free
has for years been the staple of Robert
E. Sherwood's dramatic endeavors. Because
he is a practiced rather than an instinctive
craftsman, his work, though always com-
petent, is usually predictable and occasion-
ally dull. When his talents are combined,
however, with those such as are possessed
by director Elia Kazan, Sherwood's ideas
take on a vigor and spirit which make "Man
on a Tightrope," starring veteran actor,
Frederic March, a sincere and well-done
film about the threat of Communist author-
itarianism.
The story of the film is based on an ac-
cutual event: the escape of a small circus
from behind the Iron Curtain of Czecho-
slovakia into free Bavaria. The early
events of the screen play are based on
typical invasions of the state into the
freedom of one circus owner's enterprise.
His early efforts at compromise (since he
fancies himself "not a political man") are
contrasted with his ultimate resolution to
crash the fontier into the Western zone
of Germany. The eventual escape paral-
lels the actual flight of the Circus Cernik
troupe across the fortified border.
Sherwood peoples his drama with a stock
of conventional types, including the slattern-
ly wife, the cowardly lion tamer and the
mysterious horse trainer who falls in love
with the owner's daughter. The conflicts be-
tween these people are made much of at
the start and resolved perhaps too quickly
since the only real menace in the story is
the totalitarian state. The focus, as in Sher-
wood's "There Shall Be No Night" is on the
respectable, peace-loving father who learns
that he must fight or lose his self-respect.
' The younger characters provide traditional
harmonies of romance and fierce courage to

The acting in the film is very well di-
rected. The performance of March here
is oddly enough identical to what was re-
quired in "Death of A Salesman" and
what he failed to achieve there. Gloria
Grahame, as the wife, easily handles a
role that Sherwood only threatens to do
things with. Terry Moore and Cameron
Mitchell as the romantic pair succeed in
short parts that Kazan does not neglect.
Adolphe Menjou shows well as the imag-
inative Communist, who loses out, per-
haps symbolically, to his more regiment-
ed brethen.
The end of the film alone, although the
suspense is high, sounds chords in success-
sion which are a little too familiar and not
worthy of men who can do better-or of a
studio (Fox) which seems alon to be hold-
ing the line against infantilism.

SAILOR OF THE SING-with Jeffrey
Hunter.
THIS FILM offers an excellent study on
the versatility of the movie camera. By
combining ship, sea. and rock into a finely
knit unity the cameraman has produced an
artistic achievement.
Unfortunately the plot is afflicted with
a split personality which threatens to
leave the viewer guessing at the relation-
ship between its beginning and end. But
after shaking off this disability the story
sharpens into a thin line of action with
all the economy of a warship going into
battle.

The President will strongly support Se-
cretary of Agriculture Ezra Benson, who
has been having a rough time recently
trying to cope with farm-belt unrest over
skidding farm prices, as well as the blis-
tering attacks of former President harry
Truman and former Secretary Charles
Brannan.
The White House wants to quiet the fears
of GOP farm Congressmen who have be-
come jittery about their re-election chances
next year.
Anti-Benson sentiment in the farm belt
has led to persistent rumors that Ike will
remove the Agriculture Secretary and scrap
his farm policies, which are aimed at fewer
government controls and more "self-help"
programs for the farmer. The President's
Kansas City speech will squelch these ru-
mors. Actually, the President agrees whole-
heartedly with Benson's decontrol policies.
He will say so in Kansas City, but will
bring out that he does not favor any
abrupt or rash elimination of controls
needed to guard against declining farm
prices and further recession in agricul-
tural states.
NOTE-Benson would have a rugged time
getting any legislation through the next
Congress aimed at pruning the price-sup-
port program. For GOP members of the
House Agriculture Committee, led by Chair-
man Cliff Hope of Kansas, are as strong for
