Our Daily Bread Sliced Thin by The Editor - Alex. H. Washburn Independence Maintained, as Won, by Force of Arms ,-, Communist capture of Mukden, $ capital of Manchuria, following the wholesale defeat of Chiang Kai- shek's armies, profoundly shakes "^Nationalist China and leads many ' Americans to think we have bet on the wrong horse in Asiatic operations of the Marshal Plan. Certainly the common people of Manchuria, and China itscli, are not united behind Generalissimo Chiang. Despite use of our money, equipment and advisors his Nationalist government not only was unable to crush the Reds but has been thrown out of Manchuria— with every likelihood that North China will be threatened next. ( . ^ The fundamental weakness of Chiang's government appears lo be its reputation as an oligarchy of landowners and wealth, while the Communists claim to represent the common people, by tradition landless and payers of rent to the upper class. This may be an over-simplification of China's domestic problems —but it will serve as the truth if H opens the eyes of all Americans to the full size of the tremendous problem facing us in the Far East. The United States can not uncler- ,»'tako to occupy China in order to give that nation an equitable and stable government. Nor can we switch our financial and military aid from Chiang to the Communists. Suspicion of Russian aid settles that question. The obvious answer to this dilemma is an ancient truth the citizens of.

PRICE 5c COPY Chiang Turns Shanghai, Nov. 2 —(UP) — The Chinese cabinet will be called into emergency session tomorrow to meet a political crisis caused by Communist capture of Manchuria, be maintained, as it was won, by , complete preparedness and threat of armed force. Translating this into concrete terms: Since we can't depend on stable allies where no stable government existed before in modern times, as in the case of China, we must establish and maintain naval and military bases close by to serve as dependable terminals for the outlying network force which protects of armed continental America and her connecting sea and air lines. And what we say about China ,, and her section of the world may • prove to be true also of Greece and the Mediterranean, where a shaky royalist crew aren't having much luck coping either with Russian-inspired revolution or a frankly disheartened and radical citizenry. To America it makes no difference. If China and Greece are resolved to make permanent battlegrounds of their respective countries we can't help it. AH we can do — and that we will do — is to stand oft shore on bases that will at least te confine the conflagration while it burns itself out on the hearthstones of an unfortunate people. Miners Love Their Maharajah, But Must Dig to Support Him By JAMES THRASHER John L. Lewis must have had a wonderlul lime at the United Mine Workers convention in Cincinnati. In fact, he must have felt like the Maharajah or the Princely State of Coaldom. His faithful miners didn't quite follow the custom of the Aga Khan's followers and match his considerable weight in gold. But they achieved substantially the same cl'lect by doubling his salary lo a lairly princely $50,000 a year, plus expenses. A few of Ihe faithful were so bold as to complain about Mr. Lewis' salary. The thought he from Nanking said Some observers 'said the government of Generalissimo Chiang Kai- shek might collapse as a result of military defeats and a disastrous economic situation that has caused two cabinet ministers to submit their resignations. The two cabinet members, Premier Wong Wen-Hao and Finance Minister Wang Yun-Wu, formally presented their resignations to the legislative yuan (parliament) today. Previous reports said Chiang rejected the resignations when they were offered to him yesterday and had asked the two officials to carry on during the emergency period. The officials told the 'yuan they were resigning because their currency reform program failed. The gold Chinese dollar, introduced several months ago, has dropped from 25 cents to eight cents American. The American embassy in Nank- ing reported it had received a message from Angus Ward.

One Communist force was re- porled only 20 miles north of Ying- kow. where two nationalist divisions thai escaped Ihe Mukden route were waiting to be evacuated by sea.

In Little Rock, where no rain had fallen by noon, the voting was considered heavy for a general election although it was about 25 per cent off the early pace of the Aug. 10 Democratic primary. An all-time record Arkansas vote was Record Vote Seen as America Goes lo Polls io Pick President Congress cast in that primary. Approximately 4.500 voters had continue South in a drive to cut the Peiping-Tientsin railway and seize all North China. Government officials admitted the Communists probably would .capture the bulk of .Generalissimo Chiang Kai-Shek's Manchurian Armies and Iheir equipment in the two ports. There is inadequate transportation to save them, one official admitted. It was generally believed in Peiping the Communists would strike first at the rail line linking Peiping with its seaport and supply center of Tientsin, isolaling the Peiping garrison and subjecting it to siege. Government reports admitted that Yinkow would be abandoned soon. There likewise appeared to be no plans for a heavy defense of Hulutao. Reports from Mukden said the administration has been taken over by political commissars and that only a security guard was left behind when the Communist Armies swung South. .

The city is heavy with speculation — and recollections. Those who remember the early days of the New Deal and its architect, Franklin D. Roosevelt, are asking: If Thomas E. Dewey unseats Harry S. Truman, what things will be changed? What about Dowey's first 300 days?" Will there be a new honeymoon between the White House and Capitol Hill? Will it last? How long? Dewey has not indicated that his will bring basic New third party capturing the nine Ar-iDcal laws. In fact he has promised Royce Weiscnberger, Finance Drive Chairman for the local Boy Scouts Finance Campaign, announced the appointment of the following as the Larger Gifts Committee: Ben Owens, chairman; Bill Wray, Graydon Anthony, Martin Pool, Jack Lowe, Franklin McLarty. This committee is to meet • at noon Wednesday to complete plans for their campaign. The chairman urges all citizens to give careful cpnsidcration to the needs for Scouting and pointed out that it appears to be a most successful way of combating juvenile delinquency and furnishing a badly needed program for growing boys and girls. He urged all persons who might not be contacted personally during the next two weeks to mail or hand their annual contribution to him or to Roy Anderson, the secretary. The regular drive will be made next week throughout Hempstead county. Continued on page two Large Group to Attend Forestry Study Hempstead County will have a good delegation at the .

Deputy Sheriff John Neal said a ballot box with 17 Democratic votes already odged in it was found when CHn- tonvlllc precinct no. 3 opened. Good, weather encouraged a big vote. The general election in Hempstead, usually a formality, seemed to be picking up plenty of interest today and at 1 p. m. check of the City of Hope precincts revealed 436 votes had been cast. This is considerably higher than the number cast up to the same period in the last general election. The nation's economy was in desecrate straits.

NOLL Donora, Pa., Nov. 2 (UP) — A dense fog settled over this Mon- osahela river milltown today but officials said it did not carry the airborne "silent killer" that snuffed out the lives of 19 persons over the week end. The heavy, damp fog hung like a mist in the listless air, blotting out streets and buildings. But health authorities reported that no calls for aid had been received from persons vvilh asthmatic or cardiac conditions such as those stricken three days. ago.

Nine other Republicans won the nominations .of both major parties, as did seven Democrats. They coasted to victory The .Republicans now control 246 of the 435 House scats that are sunb iect to election every two years. They could lose 28 seats and still have a bare majority of 218. There are 187 Democratic scats in the House now and two held by Ameri can Labor Party members. The Democrats must jsain at least .31, 'to take over""cStitfol : ;•''"•"""' •"•"'" '* '• Most. Democrats claimed a better than even chance to recapture Sen flte control, and a few even hoped to do the same in the House, But GOP bigwigs say they are certain of increasing their House majority and of retaining at least a bare majority of 49 seats in the Senate. At present Republicans hold a six vote margin of 51 to 45. Be cause Senators are elected for six years, only 32—one third—of the full terms are at stake this year. But in addition to ^he Maine seat already filled the uncxpired two year term of the late Senator John H. Overtoil (D) in Louisiana also is up for election. Of the 03 senators who hold over, 33 are Republicans and 30 Demo crats. Thus to win control the Dem oerals need to show a net gain of only four seals over the 15 they carried into the election. Before the vote counting got underway, Senator Scott W. Lucas fill.), chairman of the Democratic Senate campaign committee, predicted his party would hold all present seats and beat Republican candidates in from seven to ten contests. Herbert BrownoU, Jr.. GOP campaign boss, was less optimistic. He claimed only that the Republicans would hold their present 51 to 45 margin. Other Republicans would be happy to settle for a majority of one or two. Senate control usually is regard ed as second in importance only to the presidency- Without it, the White House finds it hard to re ward the party faithful because most of the major political plums are subject to Senate confirmation. And the party in control not only names committee chairmen but has a majority on each committee. That can be an important factor in steering legislation onto or away from the floor. tU-meiit is reached "in a two, I don'l see how we limy thin i gram."
