EDITORIAL MaeARTHUR OUSTER SHOWS JAPS REAL MEANING OF DEMOCRACY E VI*N AMONG THOSE WHO APPROVED General MacArthur's dismissal in April, there was widespread regret that the action removed from Japan the man who had so ably administered the occupation there. Correspondents on the scene contributed to the general concern by voicing fears that the Japanese might react badly to the event. Some foresaw a deterioration in the situation that could wipe out some of the excellent progress Japan has made under MacArthur. Actually, no dire results have ensued. That a calamity has not occurred does not, however, cast doubt on the judgment of those who measured MacArthur's administration so highly. It is simply a reflection of the endlessly-demonstrated fact that in a working democracy like America 's, no man is indispensable nor need to be regarded as such. G ENERAL BIDGWAY, his talents as a field commander already well proved, is now displaying the special abilities required for an occupation administratbr, as did MacArthur before him, and General Clay in Berlin. This is not to say he has the same specific qualities, or that he sees the job in quite the same light. There are significant differences between his personality and MacArthur's, and incNdtably their approach is different. The important thing is not to make comparisons in an effort to determine whose administration is "best." For Americans, the excit- inging fact is that a man of MacArthur's stature can be supplanted without damaging the nation's prestige or reducing the effectiveness of its policies. We can be gratified that in some fields, at least, we appear to have an ample reservoir of leadership and can thus give continuity to our affair*. B UT PROBABLY THB GREATEST benefit from Ridgway-s excellent follow-up performance is the lesson it has given to the Japanese. There has been in their extreme regard for MacArthur some: thing of the same worshipful attitude the Japs always had felt for : their emperor. To a nation being schooled by us in the ways of democracy, it was therefore valuable instruction to learn that leaders could be . changed without upsetting matters. Rotation of leadership is inherent in our concept of democracy. General Ridgway deserves our thanks, and the whole free world 's, ": for demonstrating the human vitality of a nation living under liberty. • • • BUT IS "SHELTER" THE WORD? r G NEW YORK CITY CIVIL DEFENSE OFFICIALS are considering designation ei certain crosstown subway tunnels as A-bomb shelters. It 's easy to see why the choice was made. The tunnels have al! ready met the biggest test: morning and evening they survive a great ii log-jam of humanity shuttling back and forth across Manhattan. Where else could you find a shelter that 's proved itself in two "drills" a day for several decades ? * • • MAN WITHOUT A COUNTRY H AVE YOU HEARD about the Argentine sailor who was robbed of his passport in a French port?

It's a land where, behind the scenes, there are booby traps like cocktail parties; some of the natives shouldn 't but do accept favors for favors granted; threats are made; and the law can be bent without breaking. The Senators are looking for a special kind of medicine — ethical standards, they call it — which can be used to strengthen the moral backbone of those who work for the government or do business with it. * * * • THIS UNUSUAL JOURNEY began in the head of Senator Fulbright, Arkansas Democrat, some months ago when he was digging into the doings of the RFC, the Reconstruction Finance Corporation. On March 27 he got up on the Senate floor, making a speech and a suggestion: "In making this suggestion I am quite prepared to be dubbed naive. It will not be the first time ... to expect or even hope for an improvement in the moral climate of Washington is, in the eyes of the boys who know, I am sure, thoroughly Utopian." He suggested Congress create a Commission of prominent citizens to study and make recommendations — a code of ethics — for improvement in the moral standards of members of Congress, those who work in government departments, and people doing business with Congress or the departments. * » • »» CONGRESS WHICH HAS never shown enthusiasm for outside suggestions on how to improve itself, received with something less than cheers the Fulbright suggestion that a Commission of outsiders could prescribe a moral code for Congress. But the idea landed in the lap of the Senate's Labor Committee which then told a subcommittee— headed by Senator Douglas, Illinois Democrat — to look into the suggestion. Today Douglas' httle group started to work. For about 15 days it will listen to the views of 20 or 25 prominent men on whether they think there 's truly a need for such a commission and code of conduct. Then it will be up to the subcommittee to decide whether it thinks the idea is good., * • « e BUT EVEN IF THE SUBCOMMITTEE APPROVES, the commission can 't be set up unless the full Labor Committee and then both Houses if Congress approve. So creation of the Commission, if it ever is created, is still quite a distance away. In the end Congress may say "Uh, huh," and forget the whole thing. Douglas though, is in full sympathy with Fulbright's thinking in this. In the end, any code of ethics or moral conduct, recommended by the Commission and adopted by Congress, would hardly be law in the sense that it carried criminal penalties for violation. Without penalties, what effect could it have? Douglas thinks the effect would be good: It would set up standards by which legislators, government officials, and those dealing with the government would know what was expected of them. And they would be standards by whicli the public could judge all three groups. * * « • THERE IS ACODE OF ETHICS surrounding Court Judges. The parties in a case are supposed never to discuss it with the Judge outside of court and he's expected to decide a case on the evidence, not on friendship or favors. He's not .supposed to accept favors RUMINANT EQUILIBRIST - Lollipop, an acrobatic foat, stands on a fence rail to nibble at branches overhead before an appreciativp audience at Lollipop Farm,^ Syosset, N.-Y.

JORDAN. M.IX Written rot NBA Swvta* ExerolM Caution to Avoid Hazards of Lead PoUonlnr Lead poisoning used to be one of the most common and serious forms of industrial and accidental poisonings. Thanks to preventive measures it occurs less frequently than in the past but is still a problem. Recently a lady wrote me that her husband, who had been a body and fender repair man for 16 years, was suffering aches in his arms and severe headaches and wondered whether this could be caused by lead poisoning from paint. Also there have been reports from Baltimore and Cleveland of lead poisoning in babies, probably resulting from chewing something bearing lead paint. Now it should be said that the paint industry has done an excellent job in reducing or "liminating this hazard. A number of years ago it was agreed to eliminate lead from paints to be used inside houses or on things like children's toys. But if a person uses paint intended for outside use on the inside of houses or on toys there would still be a risk. Diagnosis of Disease The symptoms suffered by the body and fender worker foultl be caused by lead poisoning. In addition to those mentioned, colicky pains in the bowels are usually present in chronic poisoning due to lead. This, of course, is not enough. The paint used would have to be analyzed for lead or other substances which micjht produce chronic poisoning. The m,in himself would have to bo studied further: a blue line around the gums is common and studies of the blood are most important. Besides chronic poisoning there is an acute form of the condition. This comes only from the rapid absorption of large quantities of lead and produces severe pain in the abdomen, vomiting, colicky cramps, and collapse. The skin usually develops a wa.xy color and the red blood cells have a definite characteristic appearance. Thanks to many years of work, and the development of many protective measures, lead poisoning is gradually disappearing. Most cases which develop now are the result of carelessness and adults should use care not only for themselves but for their children since lead poisoning once acquired is not only Information for Students Seeking Military Deferment students seeking deferment from military service on the basis of scholastic standing should ask their colleges to send the necessary certificate to their local boards without delay Col. Paul G. Armstrong, State Selective Service Director, announced today. It is the individual student's responsibility to see that his board receives the certificate. Forms are available et all local boards, Col, Armstrong said, m- phasizlng that since they must be prepared in triplicate each student should obtain three copies and deliver them to his college to be filled out. The certificate, known as SSS Form No. 109. Is the only document local boards will accept as evidence of scholastic standing. In the Chicago area, the forms are available at many colleges and universities as well as through local boards.
