Not so many years ago feeling against Germany was so intense some individuals suggested sterilizing all German males to spare the world future Germans And there was talk, but not of (icial, of reducing Germany farm land by destroying its big' industries to prevent rearming. Feeling against Japan was equally. Severe But it's now seven years since Germany and Japan surrendered. And in those seven years the Russians have become the new enemy, making it necessary for the U. S. to find new allies, even among old enemies. As a starter, tho U. S. poured billions into Japan and GermanyV to get them back on their feet. And only a few months ago the Senate approved a very mild peace treaty with Japan, even letting it rearm. In turn, the Japanese agreed to let U. S. troops remain in Japan. With them there and with a friendly Japan rearming, the U. S. obtained a priceless outpost in the Pacific against Russia. And yesterday the Senate, aftc& only seven hours debate, over- ' whelmingly approved arrangements for letting Germany pretty r. much run itself, for letting Germany become part of the Atlantic Pact, and for letting German troops into the European army. This applies only to the government of Western Germany, of course, since the Russians control the Eastern part. There is a similarity between the treaty with Japan and the deal with Germany^ While Japan is now the mosir Western outpost against Russia, Germany is the Eastern outpost.

I refer to Avercll Harrimnn, the chief of Irndleasc and, for a time, our ambassador in Moscow. Harrimnn and his military administrator of lend- lease In Russia, General John R. Di'imc, were guests with Ike at the firnnd review in Moscow. It must be said for Dcanc that ill his own book called ''Strange Alliance" he makes a persuasive record of vigorous resentment of the Soviet arrogance and selfish- nrss toward Its benefactors. Appar ontly, Deane had kept Washington well Informed' of the Ingratitude, Misplcion and enmity of the Soviet government long before the collapse of Germany. He and others Cdinplnined ot the Soviet's secrecy In intelligence matters and It is plain bryond any question that no really alert office could reasonably think thu Kremlin was playing fair \\lth us. But he got no results. Roosevelt and Hopkins threw down their own country. Elliott Roosevelt wrote that even after Ike had been made commander of the whole show, he, Elliott, returning to London from a state visit to Moscow, found Ike almost destitute of knowledge of the Russian army and eager for the little trifles of undigested information that could be wheedled out of the President's son. Within the woek of the' grout Eisenhower gain in Moscow, the New York Times reported, under the head, "Ike Hails Russ Amity", that Eisenhower said he had had tho pletisantest relations tvith the Russians from the beginning. That estimate* is not consistent with others but that was his story. He also said he was surprised to sec how benign und fatherly Stalin looked. About a month after Eisenhower's interview with the Russian press, the Detroit Times published murder conviction in tho death orj wm ,ici' got the nomination because two_ bunkhouse mates at Ophir,| n( , other candidate can possibly K«'t enough first-choice ballots to Utah. Bishop, who used the B. Anderson in Utah, may get a postponement of the d'eath date, however, because his attorneys are seeking a new trial. ! Bishop was sent to prison in Ar- j kansas in 1943 for killing four men: at Springdulo, Ark. He was given! a Christinas furlough in l!)f>! and: the next that was heard of him | was his arrest for killing the two! Utah miners. I i,ct over the top. Stmington Gets Backing KANSAS CITY, (INS1— Former Air Secretary Stuart Symington received unanimous endorsement from Kansas City's organized labor last night in his bid for the Democratic nomination for U. S. senator. The unions also endorsed Phil Welch for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination. Symington and Welch top a slat- o( candidates backed by a coalition of .antl-Pendcrgust Democrats. . Some 175 delegates from 03 AFL unions in the Kansas City area participated' in the voting. Commons Doesn't Blame Churchill LONDON Oft— The House of Commons decided last night that it couldn't blame Prime Minister Winston Churchill's government be cause il hadn't been told the Americans were Roing to bomb the Yalu iiiver power plants in North Korea. The House, by a 300-270 vote, defeated a Laborite motion to censure the government because it hadn't been consulted before the raids. Churchill warned the HOUSP that the motion, while technically aimed at his Cabinet, "really falls on the United States." Adoption of the motion could troops. France and' Britain will keep troops in Germany too. When the other interested nations give their formal blessing to this setup, as the Senate did yesterday, those troops will cease to be called occupation troops. Nevertheless, under the agrceTj-j ment with the present German government, those troops can step in any time and suppress what may appear to them as an attempt to overthrow this present kind o£ German government. This, in effect, gives the Western Allies a stick over the Germans which is a little stiff er than the deal made with Japan. At any rqte, in the land of its two great wartime enemies, the U.' S. now has troops and somiT friends as advance guard's against Russia. On June 11 I wrote in this column: "Obviously 1t is true what the political gossips are saying: That the arrangement between the Little Rock-Washington Axis is for McMath to help Truman name the national party leader in 1952 and tho national party in return will help McMath to a third term as governor now and beat John L. McClellan for the United States Senate scat in 1954. "What do you have to say about a situation where we are running a campaign for gover- 'nor but the real issue is the United States Senate? "Do the people o£ Arkansas stand by the senator of their own choosing, or do they let the Little Rock-Washington Axis destroy him and put a politicians' choice in his placet "The politicians talk about i newspapers. "But how can newspapers help but talk about politicians? If we didn't it wouldn't be long before our individual vota would be worthies." Yesterday, July 2, President Truman was In Arkansas to dedicate the Norfork and Bull Shoals dams. Just before boarding his I plane at Newport for the return flight to Washington the President said: "I know I have no business saying this, but it is my own Poisoning for Weevil Not Necessary Yet Protect the lady beetles big eyed bugs and insidious flower bugs by keeping Insecticides out of the cotton fields as long as possible says County Agent Oliver L. Adams. Mr. Adams scouting cotton fields* with Extension Entomologist Gordon Barnes located no cotton needing poison for cotton insect control. The beneficial insects are doing the necessary control work along with the dry weather. The dry weather is killing many weevil grubs in the squares which have fallen onto the .gorund. Squares should be observed frequently for first generation weevils that may begin feeding in about a week in favorable areas in the cotton that has been squaring four to six weeks. When 25 per cent or more of squares show fresh feeding punctures poison application should be considered. Very small boll worms are in some cotton but the lady beetles and other feeders should easily keep them under control at this time where poison has not been applied. Entomologist Barnes said that ii insecticide applications are started now, it will probably mean IS or 20 applications more. Once the application of organic insecticides is begun, it is hard to stop because of the destruction of natural en emies and the build-up o£ other do^u>G »"«o, uut A- ^ i..., «.... .pests.

He had done more than any other man to save Russia from disaster. Russia owned him everything. He owed Russia nothing. The decorations were mere baubles, compared with the vital services he had rendered Russia. | But when he left Russia, laden j with honors, he seemed to feel H\ necessary to show his gratitude in assailing the American free gvess for its criticism of Russian diplomacy and duplicity.

So we correctly forecast what Mr. Truman would say three weeks before he said it. This proves one of two things- Kither your correspondent is a very smart c'ditor, or the President of the United States is so heavily involved in Arkansas politics that everything he was to do or say was bound to be obvious weeks in advance.

The McMath case is singularly offensive because he cares nothing at all for the governorship itself He wants a third term not because he expects to do anything for tho state government of Arkansas but because he needs to control the state political machine in 1954 in order to have a chance to unseat John L. McClellan in the United States Senate. But it's asking a great deal of the people of Arkansas to throw away their regard for their own state government just to humor the personal politicial ambitions of One man.

The Soviets handed the Catholic churchmen over to American officers in Karfshorst, Kast Berlin The priest^ came to Berlin yesterday by train for a sight-seeing trip. In a borrowed automobile and with a German woman as secretary-interpreter, they halted on the frontier between the American sector and Russian zone to take some pictures. Eastern Communist police and a Russian guard forced them to drive into the zone and took them to a Soviet command post. The American high commission received word of the release but a spokesman said there was no immediate mention of the Soviet decision on the German woman. He added that it was possible her release might be handled between the East Zone and West Berlin German police. She is Mrs. Kath erine Wintzler, a Berlin employe of the National Catholic Welfare Conference and the mother of two children.

"Boy look at that gun it packs— and its low silhouette." "Yep," says the first soldier, "It's got almost the same lines as the German tank that ambushed the crate I got hit in back in 1942.' And if the heroic dead bear any ill-will, one couldn't blame the two spectral tankmen for resenting the fact that their country gave them no such tank to fight in when they were among the living.

For many Both of these legends are relics of America's bold frontier past, but neither holds true in the middle half of the Twentieth: Century. No civilian nation can spring to arms with squirrel guns any more and win a modern war. It is a perilous tradition, this 19th century nungover in our thinking that we can hold off an enemy with out of-date weapons while we quickly gear up and turn out better ones. Wars today move too fast. As to the legend that Americans are the most inventive race, the facts simply don't bear it out — at least on the battlefields. The Germans produced the best submarines, tanks and all-purpose artillery guns in the last war. They put the first jet planes in the air the first guided missiles — rockets and buzz bombs.

They in« dicatcd, however, they might yield on 10,000 South Koreans Impressed into tho North Korean Army and might not argue over the di»ponL tion of 37,500 civilian internees. The Communists Thursday pro posed that ull Korean War captives be "reclugslfled" according to nationality and area and that prisoner lists bo checked. They agreed to permit Allied-hold South Koreans to "return immediately without being lepatrloted," but Insisted on return of ull Chinese prisoners. North Korean Gen.
