IN THAT TDO -v REARMAMENT HAS EUROPEAN LEADERS IN CRUCIAL DILEMA I VERY RESPONSIBLE WESTERN LEADER believes the only hope of preventing war with Russia is to make the West so strong Stalin will fear to move. These leaders are agreed that real rearmament is the vital ingredient in that strength. No military divisions on paper, no mere potential of industrial capacity are deemed likely to exert a critical impact upon Stalin. That the United States and the nations of Western Europe must share the burdens of rearmament is accepted by all sober statesmen of the free world. But beyond this basic accord there lies a crucial dilemma which threatens the whole structure of common Western Action. Expressed simply it is this: How can European nations rearm without so damaging their civilian economics that they are laid open to the kind of Communistic attack from within that we are trying to prevent from without T One need not apolozige for any foot-dragging on Europe's part to recognize the reality of this danger. In public and private statement, the ablest Americans and Europeans associated with Western defense declared this to be the very core of the matter. I N AMERICA, REARMAMENT certainly is no minor affair. It[ cannot be observed without the pain of economic dislocation — inflation, curtailment of civilian goods, shortages of men and materials. But the prospect for Europe is far grimmer. The countries of lEurope do not have America's abundance of resources. They suffered lastly greater ravages in World War II. Only recently, thanks largely to the Marshall Plan, have they begun to enjoy against some genuine sense of economic well-being. What this means is that the margin of safety is much narrower in Europe than America. Rearmament anywhere means squeezing the civilian economy. But in the nations of Europe there is little room for squeezing. \ The British still like under rationing. Other Western Europeans 'remember too vividly the pallid existence they so recently endured. .Even today, their life is no economic paradise. For all these people, i it is but a short step down to a condition that stire within them feeling of despair. Europe's leaders well understood this. And so it is that they fear too abrupt and too heavy rearmament. They foresee popular uprisings that might undermine Europe's shaky governments and clear the way t for Communism. • • • 1/ conTTiS.

Anyone who looks for an end to that one in the foreseeable future is suffering the grand illusion. Some kind of peace may be restored in Korea and we may be able to claim we did what we set out to do: Stop the Communist aggression south of the 38th parallel. But it's too soon to bank on peace even in Korea. For once a cease-fire is agreed on, if it's agreed on, there may be months of haggling. And how we make out in that remains to be seen. * * J* WHY THE RUSSIANS AND CHINESE were willing to call off the shooting just now can only be guessed. . Certainly, the Chinese had suffered enormous losses and were losing face in Asia. Russia had suffered damage in Korea, too. Until Korea, Communism had taken over country after country from the inside. Through greed to take all Asia in a hurry, or arrogance in the belief the West didn't dare move, the Comunists decided that in Korea they'd attack for the first time. It was a good place to test the United States, to see how far it was willing to go to stop Communism. If it didn't move into Korea, the rest of the world would lose faith in' this country, thus making Communist conquests elsewhere easier. • • • The Doctor Says By EDWIN P. JORDAN. M.D. Written For NEA Service P REMIER DE GASPERI OF ITALY blames the pressures of rearmament for the recent Red gains there at the polls. W. R. Herod, American boss of North Atlantic Treaty production, told newsmen at Lisbon not long ago that European statesmen are sincerely concerned over the possibility of popular "difaffection" following upon rearmament. A high American official in Paris acknowledged that £his threat is uppermos tin the minds fo key Western men from General Eisenhower on down. J|r None of these leaders concludes that rearmament is therefore •Impossible or unlikely in Europe. But virtually all do believe that extraordinary and highly imaginative effort is necessary to the attainment of rearmament goals. / N Have the men of the free world the sanity, the intelligence and courage and emotional stability to keep Europe on delicate balance and avoid these pitfalls? Very soon we will begin to learn the answer. YOUR MANNERS •* You call a friend and the telephone is answered by a strange voice, perhaps that of a maid or a cleaning woman.

THIS COUNTRY NOT ONLY WENT into Korea but brought its Allies along. Worse, for Russia, the U. S. and its Allies in Europe began to arm against Russia. The U. S. went halfway toward a wartime footing. The shock of Korea speeded up its arms program by many months, a great advantage if war with Russia itself broke out. And, again worse for Russia, the mood of this country darkened as the Korean fighting went on, showing this country was willing, if necessary, to make such fiercer war, even if it meant war with Russia, as the Senate inquiry into the firing of General MacArthur showed. While the general was all for making the fiercer war now, the Truman administration held back, hoping it could be avoided through some kind of peace in Korea. This realization provided the Russians with a good psychological time for suggesting cease-fire. • * * THEY COULD EXPECT THE Truman administration to welcome peace, too. There never has been great enthusiasm in this country for the Korean war. The Americans undertook it as a moral obligation and extreme measure, since Korea is so distant, of self-protection against Communist expansion. All in all, It wasn't a bad time for the Russians to suggest cease­ fire in Korea. Blocked there temporarily, they can push elsewhere. It's unlikely they'll stop pushing. Having learned a lesson in Korea, next time they may try internal overthrow again, instead of attack. Howard B. Stark Co., Wumkee EARLY DIAGNOSIS OF POLIO IS AID IN PATIENT'S RECOVERY Children are more susceptible to polio than grown-ups though the disease can and sometimes does strike those in their mature years. But parents have a special responsiblity to watch their youngsters for any sign of illness which might possibly be polio since early diagnosis and treatment- may mean a good deal for the outcome. If there are several cases of polio in the community it is wise to be particularly cautious. The first signs of the disease may be similar to those of any other infection: low fever, headache, dizziness irritability and similar vague symptoms are common. > Many youngsters who develop such signs will not have polio but it is better to be sure than sorry. Slight stiffness of the neck is quite common in polio but parents should not make an imaginative child too conscious of the importance of a stiff neck. In other words it is the doctor's responsibility, not the parents,' to make a diagnosis and all that the parents should do is to get medical help if they even suspect anything serious might be wrong. Actually a definite diagnosis may be difficult or impossible during the first few days. Signs of muscle weakness in polio or other sure evidences of the disease usually do not show up for several days after the first symptoms. It may be impossible to tell until that time. However, the rest in bed and general care which can be given early, and the isolation from other youngsters which should be enforced, are all to the good. There is a form of the disease known as bulbar poliomyelitis in which difficulty in breathing is the most important symptom and which often appears early. This is the kind in which the so-called iron lung is used. This instrument is designed to make breathing, possible during the time ajtoffi nature is unable to accomplish it. Although newspaper readers are all familiar with stories of people who have lived for years in a respirator or iron lung, in most cases the need does not last very long. Many of those with this form of polio are really lucky because the paralysis clears up entirely and they frequently have no other effects. The treatment of early polio has already improved enormously with the use of hot-wet packs and other measures. It is continuing to improve. With early diagnosis and prompt treatment an enormous number of those stricken with polio are recovering completely or so nearly so that they have little or no trouble leading normal lives in later years.

Why in 1946 when Norge built in Herrin a new plant complete from the ground up were we told the reason they did not come to Mt. Vernon was that we did not have a building for them? Are we being kidded and why? Did you read the following in this paper on Jan. 25, 1951? "Money Raised For Industry To Be Given Back. C. of C. Says Building Restrictions Block Factory Construction Plan." Two days later, Jan. 27, 1951 did you read the following in this paper? "A factory costing $1,200,000 will be built for Allen Industries, Inc. a half mile northwest of Herrin, the Chamber of Commerce here announced today." What does Herrin's C. of C. have that we don't? Is there a new factory going up in DuQuoin at rhe present time? Why didn't one or both of these plants locate in Mt. Vernon? Why do we call ourselves the "King City"? Are we being kidded and why? Why not be realistic? Do we have the manpower needed for new plants? Are our taxes too high? Is it because of our high water rates that new industries will not locate in Mt. Vernon? Do you know that Herrin's water rates are much lower than ours? Would our sewer problems have anything to do with new industries passing up Mt. Vernon? Would the financial condition of rhe city of Mt. Vernon, which is getting worse each year be the reason that new industries will not locate here? Would frequent headlines in the papers "Mt. Vernon Sued" keep new industry away? Are we being kidded and why? While we do not pretend to have all of the correct answers to the above questions, we do have them for all your vacuum cleaner problems whether they be for a new or used cleaner, parts or service for your present cleaner. Why? Vacuum Cleaners ARE OUR ONLY BUSINESS Phona 1911-1912-1913 City Hall Bldg. O. R. BIIFORD
