There is a big market for the club If it can move. There isn't much if it Is pinned down for five years. So Mr. Crosley is giving up something of real value when he agrees to pin the franchise to Cincinnati for five years. We believe that entitles him to insist that the agreement reflect precisely the terms on which he agreed with the advisory committee which set out to save the Reds. The document voted by City Council does not reflect precisely the terms of the agreement. The details which the ball club would like changed are: Provision for the club to benefit from any lowering of the city admissions tax. Insertion of a deadline for completion of the city parking lots. The time specified now is "feasible." Vague agreements depending upon no changes in government are not always negotiable. Parking areas close enough to be attractive to baseball fans. Some parcels mentioned by the city are outside the area of the original agreement. These are details on which we are confident that the city and Mr. Crosley will reach agreement. We bring the matter up because this is the tel in 1939.

K the referendum move founders then the decks will be cleared for resolving the contract difficulties. It seems good judgment for Cincinnati to nail down the contract as quickly a3 possible. That would stop tempting offers from being dangled before the Reds' owner. Moneywise, the inducement to go is greater than the inducement to stay. However, Mr. Crosley has chosen not to put the matter on a strict dollars-and-cents basis. THE ENQUIRER has supported city action to put the Red3 under contract because we believe major league baseball to be a civic asset of such value that strong means are justified. It will be easier to keep the Reds here than it would be to get another franchise if they left. ' All that the city would be doing would be investing in land from which it would derive parking revenue and which it could dispose of later probably at a profit.

Walter LIPPMANN t A F u I t o n LEWIS jr To GOP Three Roads, Three Heroes Stassen Backing Bother WASHINGTON: On the basis of all normal political calculations, the entry of Harold Stassen, the barefoot boy with cheek, into the Pennsylvania gubernatorial contest is not even good for a laugh, but there are backstage angles that are worrying regular GOP leaders not only in the state, but in Washington as well. Stassen has boasted that he has been promised $750,000 in financial backing which is a considerable package of lettuce. Nobody else in the pic ture can even dream that high. A SURVEY of the established GOP machinery and its regular moneybags reveals that it is definitely not Pennsylvania gun to look as if we might, nevertheless, go to the summit without adequate and successful preparation. THIS WOULD be very dangerous in that the world would assume that if President Eisenhower went to the summit, it was because Secretary Dulles had decided that the meeting would be successful. Thus, if it was not successful, the whole blame would fall on this country. The new Eisenhower suggestion could be used to avoid this dilemma, and to say that before we put on a big show at the summit, let us work up to it with meetings of men who would in the end be involved, as negotiators, as advisers, as politicians, in what would happen at the summit. VIEWS on which the member states, are able to state viewpoints and determine the impact of such viewpoints. Specialized agencies of the UN are endeavoring to promote the general welfare of the human family.

No peace-loving, civilized nation would or should turn its back on such humanitarian coals. STANLEY COHEN. 4 418 Reading Lane, Cincinnati. contact among men at the top of affairs. There are signs that, combined with the determination not to negotiate on the real Issues, and along with their obvious interest to make propaganda, there is also a real desire to emerge from their isolation and to know more of the world outside. It would not surprise me to hear that what the President had to say on this point may be his response to intimations he has had from Moscow. In any event it is a good Idea. For there has been considerable danger that we might be painting ourselves into a corner. Having made so much of the argument that we cannot go to the summit unless there was adequate and successful preparation, It had be- Readers' In Support Of UN ro TBS KDITOB OF Till BSQUIBE. Notwithstanding the failure of the United Nations with respect to disarmament, neither the United States nor any other member of the international community should seriously contemplate withdrawing from the UN. The UN represents a phase of the process of international organization for the conduct of international relations as distinguished from national organization. This process represents man's effort to modify A Good Idea THE PRESIDENT'S latest letter to Bulganin, which was published this week, suggests what may be a way around a growing difficulty. This government is being forced by the pressure of world opinion toward a summit meeting though there is no genuine prospect of a serious negotiation on any of the substantive issues. Hitherto, the Western position has been that we would be glad to go to the summit provided the foreign ministers, or the ambassadors acting under the orders of the foreign ministers, could work out agreements which could then be ratified at the summit. THE SOVIET position, on the other hand, has been that while nothing could be negotiated on the real issues, something might be done about the control of armaments provided there was a meeting at the summit first where an agreement would be reached to instruct the foreign ministers to do something. The basic difference between the two sides is that the Soviets want to go to the summit for its psychological effect but not to settle great issues; we, on the other hand, do not want to go to the summit unless and until we can settle some great issue. In one part of his letter the President has addressed himself to this difference, and has proposed that the USSR and the USA organize an exchange of visits by "citizens who exert an influence." This is not quite the same thing as a meeting on the summit. But it does propose meetings, not too hurried and not too blown up with publicity, by men from both sides who are at or very near to the summit. THERE IS some reason for thinking that the Russians themselves may be seeing the need to establish more personal. at ease, and beguiling to the ladies. It was highly effective in 1948, to the extent that he frightened Tom Dewey into making a special two-week barnstorming tour of Oregon, where the two were entered against each other and the mustache barely pulled it out of the fire. The Stassen of that day, however, was different from the Stassen of the present. For one thing, he was 10 years younger, 10 years fresher and with 10 years less record to answer for. FOR ANOTHER, he was entered in arenas in wihch he had legitimate status as a presidential aspirant, not in the role of carpetbagger, which he is In Pennsylvania. He claims to own a house somewhere outside of Philadelphia, but he doesn't live there and neither does his family. His only real contact with the state was, when he spent four years, ending in 1953, as president of the University of Pennsylvania, most of which period he spent politicating far and wide over the nation. His tour as Foreign Aid Administrator for Ike, immediately thereafter, is no boon in a state that is heavily anti-international, and the Nixon knifing was a further black mark. So all in all, Minnesota's gift of Christmas jewelry to her commonwealth sister of Pennsylvania has turned a little green, and without exception, all statistics so indicate. STATE CHAIRMAN George Bloom, for example, has been holding a series of regional meetings behind closed doors, to sound out party thinking on potential candidates. He already has done so in four cities: Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Huntingdon and Franklin, with county chairmen and vice chairmen and state Republican committeemen from the areas present. In each of the four, the sentiment was 100 per cent anti-Stassen and in two of them, there were formal resolutions against him. The real question however, is how loud can $750,000 talk. and transform the multi-state system.

It recently recommended to Cincinnati City Council that it name the Third Street Distributor the Fort Washington Freeway, as proposed in these columns and in the Times-Star earlier. For good measure, the Parkway Board resolved also that consideration be given to naming the Millcreek Expressway, Gen. Anthony Wayne Expressway, and the less imminent Northeast Expressway, the George Rogers Clark Expressway. The board points out that these new highways will follow the routes taken by Speaking Of Space SIX MEMBERS of Congress, having visited Antarctica and flown over the South Pole, recommend that the United States maintain its six scientific observation stations in the area. Their belief Is that the Russians will take over any activities that we may abandon. They propose also that Congress re-examine the established American policy of making no territorial claims and recognizing any such claims made by other nations. So far as scientific stations are concerned, this makes sense. If it was worth-while to set up these stations for the International Geophysical Year, it should be worth-while to continue the operation of some, at least, of the half dozen installations. The cost cannot be too serious a factor. And no preat number of personnel would be involved. When it comes to territorial claims, the problem is more debatable. Antarctica on the map already looks like a pie cut by several people at once into all sorts of wedges and slices. It has not yet been shown that the resources of the Antarctic are going to be important in the predictable future. And the world has controversies enough without adding a tangle of feuds over this frozen wasteland. It might be wiser to raise the Issue in the United Nations, and see whether an international regime can be established a partnership of the nations that have led in polar exploration and have the means to maintain meteorological and other stations in the Antarctic. It would be a pity to allow the fine international cooperation of the IGY to degenerate into a petty scramble for spheres of influence. Voice Of The ENQUIRER these two famous commanders when they set out for their successful operations against the Indians at Fallen Timbers and Piqua, respectively. There is much to be said for these proposals. But Wayne and Clark are quite well memorialized all the way from here to Detroit. Wayne, especially, has cities, counties, hotels, highways, streets and even a university named for him. Cincinnati is 200 miles from the scene of his great victory on the Maumee River. These are city streets we are naming. And there may be some more strictly local figures who merit this recognition. At least the project needs more work. MEANTIME, since place names are under discussion, we rise in our place to propose not for the first time that the colorful and authentic name of Bloody Run be restored to wlfat for 28 years has been called quite unconvincingly Victory Parkway. o "A Portland, Oreg., man complained that his wife kept the ashes of her first husband in their bedroom."

The observance now Is truly world-wide. As this day dawned, the first prayer was led by Queen Salote of the Tonga Islands, just west of the international date line. As the earth turns, the World Day of Prayer will be observed successively in 144 specially dedicated countries, closing this evening with the final amen on St. Lawrence Island, Alaska. . Observance in the Cincinnati area will be sponsored, a3 has been customary, by the Council of Church Women of Greater Cincinnati. The same service of praise, confession and intercession extends throughout the World Day of Prayer. It is aimed to strengthen the spirit and train the minds of Christians everywhere, and the offerings received at the participating churches will help finance the drive to "preach the gospel to all nations." This is deemed especially important among the newly literate. Education is progressing throughout the world. Unless it is given a steady foundation of proper religious values, education alone may not serve the best interests of civilization. The World Day of Trayer dedicates itself to an exceedingly important mission in this half century of crisis. maintain global peace and se-curtiy. The significant point is that it is an endeavor In which almost all nations are participating. From this kind of activity there may develop those elements which are essential to world order: A genuine feeling of mutual respect among the family of nations and political harmony on an international level. The UN provides a platform I was very pleased to read in your paper February 6 that the Recreation Commission intends to increase facilities on the river front.

But are voti mad enough to do something live below this line. money and it certainly is not Stassen's. He has no support at all inside the party, and what little he has outside is from college intellectuals who are notoriously indigent. Troubled party regulars have traced the source to the Paul Hoffman Modern Republican element which financed this same Harold Stassen in his abortive attempted assassination of Vice President Dick Nixon at the San Francisco Convention of 1956. The same group is backing Rep. Hugh Scott for the Senate seat of the retiring Sen. Ed Martin, and he also shows signs of unilimited financial resources. THE riTCH is to try to switch rock-ribbed Pennsylvania from the conservative to the modernist column, and capture the important delegation to the 1960 Republican Convention. Stassen is hardly a dependable custodian of delegation votes for anybody but Stassen, but the modernists are not in a position to be choosy. His hat is in the ring, and having used him once, the Paul Hoffman gang is prepared to try it again and hope for higher success this time. Stassen's plan of operation is to utilize the technique he used with considerable success in the presidential primaries of 1948. lie campaigns assiduously, mostly with smaller audiences, and always emphasizes a question period at the end of his formal remarks.

True. The making and maintaining of peace is not secured by the route of power politics or supremacy in the armaments race.. It comes from the upsurge of the will to peace in the hearts of the peoples of the world. There has alwas been this urgency "to play the part of wise, mature and human men," but that urgency is more evident today thin ever before. Will we arise and play the part?
