FIRM HANDLING CAN MAKE RUSSIA PUT UP OR SHUT UP ON PEACE BID T HE RUSSIAN PEACE PROPOSAL offers hope to the millions ot people who would like to see an end to the fighting and something approximately real peace established in this war-weary world., Or does it? It is an honest attempt to negotiate at last a dispute that has already claimed thousands of lives and cost billions of dollars in war expense and destruction of property ? Or is it another crafty Kremlin trick to lull the U. S. and its UN Allies into a feeling of false optimism ? Is it a trick to split the Allies by causing dissention among them over the actual peace terms? * * * T HOSE QUESTION'S HAVE TO BE ASKED by any sensible person because of Russia 's long record of diplomatic duplicity, double' crossing and shameless dishonesty in her international dealings. They have to be asked despite UN Secretary-General Trygve Lie's assurance that the Soviets' motives are sincere and their off-hand peace big should be taken seriously. They have to be asked because a wise man always reaches for a grain of salt when listening to pious utterances from a known liar. So while Mr. Malik 's gambit offers hope to some, it also confronts president Truman, the State Department and their opposite numbers among our UN Allies with a keen challenge. It is a challenge to their judgment and their ability to come through when the chips are down in an international poker game in which one player has no compunction about using a marked deck and hiding a few aces up his sleeve. • • • B Y THEIR HANDLING OF THE SITUATION the President and his advisers have a chance to redeem themselves with many citizens throughout the country who feel that Truman-Acheson and company have demonstrated something less than dynamic leadership in their handling of the whole problem of Communistic expansion in Asia. •\ Because of previous sad experience of those naive enough to take Russian promises at face value, it is only the part of wisdom to retain a healthy skepticism until the Reds' sincerity is proved beyond doubt. But that does not mean that we should lead the UN along the path of intimidity. The burder of proof of sincerity is on Russia. By taking a firm stand with her and refusing to be stampeded by wishful thinking, we can call her hand and make her put her cards on the table. Then perhaps our diplomats will learn that Russia doesn't hold all the trumps they had credited her with. Or that she is just trying to cheat again. i AUDIENCES DIFFER THROUGHOUT THE NATION, FONDA OBSERVES icon IHI. »"<C FEATURES SYXPIOTE W. WOTI.C HCaTS SSSISVID.

One thing that has amazed me is how audiences will differ in various parts of the country. "We were prepared for San Francisco. Everybody had told us what a great show town it was. But we didn't really expect it to be quite so great. The laughs for the show were as big as anything we ever got in New York. , * * * * "BUT THEN WE CAME TO LOS ANGELES. .What a change Usually we have a few moments to look at the other characters beween laughs. But on opening night in L. A. The laughs were too short for that." The impending Korean truce would catch a number of movie producers with their plots down. The peace would destroy the timeliness of the war films now being rushed to the cameras. But the projects will no doubt continue, since war pictures are generally big box office . . . The trade papers reported sneak previews of two big epics this week. One was "Quo Vadis," which weighed in at a running time of three hours and 15 minutes. The other, "David and Bath- seba," was clocked at two hourr and 24 minutes. JACK JOHNSON Jack enlisted in the Navy in March and took his boot training in San Diego, Calif.

Approve $3 Hike In Age Pensions By Associated Press WASHINGTON, July 7. — The Senate Finance Committee has approved a compromise plan to increase the federal share of old age assistance payments by S3 a month instead of the §5 voted earlier by the Senate. The plan, approved yesterday, would increase federal payments to the states for old age assistance, aid to dependent children, the blind and the totally disabled by about $140,000,000 annually. It is part of a minor revenue bill which probably will be called up in the Senate again next week. It was returned to the committee for reconsideration after Senator Taft (R-Ohio) objected to the $5 proposal offered by Senator McFarland (D-Ariz.) while operating from the aircraft carrier USS Princeton in Korea. One attack and three fighter squadrons comprise the group which lost 14 pilots in action. In addition to the spectacular aerial torpedo attack against the Hwa- chon Reservoir Dam gates, the group flew 5,960 sorties against the Communists. TODAY IN WASHINGTON By Associated Prass SENATE: In recess until Monday. HOUSE: Adjourned until Monday. Raised Marijuana For His Rheumatism By Associated Press EAST HAMPTON, N. Y., July 7. —John Farrar, 51. says he was cultivating a two-acre plot of marijuana for his rheumatism. Farrar, a gardener, was held yesterday for a Suffolk county grand jury on a charge of cultivating the weed. He told authorities that boiled marijuana makes an excellent liniment for the treatment of rheumatism. Suffolk county officials said Farrar pleaded guilty in 1946 to a similar charge. They said he served six months of an 18-month federal prison term. Pvt. James W. Harris, son of Mr. and Mrs. Cyril Harris of 1401 Westcott and husband of the former Fern Anderson of 1911 Cherry, is stationed near Seoul, Korea.

M. — Show Starts 11:30 P. M. Admission 50c to All (Tax Incl.) BY RELMAN MORIN (Associated Press Correspondent on Tour of U. S. Army Ciunps) FORT KNOX, Ky., July 7. — A common G. I. comment on Army rations is that "a man can fight on this chow, but he couldn't live on it." Too often, that is true. In the field, a soldier is frequently too busy to linger lovingly over his can of C-ration. He gulps down the meat and beans, and if he had the forethought to scrounge one, he opens a can of fruit salad, which is thirst-quenching as well as sweet. And that's it. Sometimes it has to be that way. But the day may be near at hand when a G. I. in a foxhole will be getting better food than he could buy at his favorite hash house. That's the Army's present objective. • # * HERE'S AN EXAMPLE: The other day at Fort Knox, a company of infantry was far out in the field, on a training maneuver. For dinner, the men ate braised beef, mashed potatoes,' buttered lima beans, sliced tomatoes, and chilled cateloupe. With it. they were served bread, butter, lemonade and hot coffee. The meal was prepared in the field under conditions that would simulate combat conditions. Seven soldier cooks, with an instructor, Sgt. Lester R. Johnson, of Champaign, 111., did the work. These men are students at the Army food service school. They go through an eight weeks course. About 50 a week are graduated. During that time, they learn more about food than- the average housewife ever suspects. • * * "MORALE," said Capt. Daniel O. Stoudemire, director of the school. "Nine times out of ten when morale is bad in a unit, you can trace it directly to the kind of chow they're getting." He said the ideal Army cook is almost as concerned .with the morale values of food as the way it tastes. They learn all the tricks of cooking in the field, under tents, or with the most primitive equipment, if that should be necessary. In what the Army hopes will be the common situation, rolling field kitchens will approach the lines, and food will go forward from there to the men in thermos-type containers.
