Our Doily Bread Sliced Thin by The Editor Alex. H. Washburn—-—— Highway Memo f And Reporter's Memo to Publisher A year ago the Stale Highway Department began reshaping the dirt shoulders on U. S. til, Winter rains set in — and immediately there were a lot of tragic accidents. Oul-of-statc tourists hit the dirt with one front wheel, and promptly skidded down the bank. There were scores o£ such accidents a i year ago. Last month the highway department, learning nothing from l!)47's experience, again started monkey- ing with the shoulders of U. S. G7 •—and with the coming of the seasonal rains wo are once more hearing about skidding cars and smashed-up motorists, it is inexcusable. The highway department should be stopped by the state police from touching dirt shoulders in the wet season, unless it is prepared to put down asphalt in place of fresh wet dirt. As anyone knows, newly- turned dirt is quickly smeared over the concrete roadway, creating an imposible hazard for cars traveling at no more than normal highway speed. Governor Ben Lancy would do his state a service by interfering in this matter, overriding the state highway authorities with an executive order forbidding shoulder repairs Jrom now until Spring. And the very least the state can do to rectify today's tragic mistake is to put "Danger" signs all along U. S. 67. WEATHER FORECAST Arkansas: Colder this afternoon, with showers in past portion.

Rep. Brooks Hays of Arkansas said here yesterday that the VA had agreed to try again for a settlement in the dispute which was threatened the entire program in the state. The situation is this: Arkansas' department of education has been paying school superintendent $25 monthly to supervise GI farm training. Officials of the VA contend that such action is gratuity and has objected to the payments. The Arkansas congressmen said last week that the superinendents actucally supervise in the training program involving about 18,000 veterans and earn the money paid them. Hays said H. V.

As reported by Editor & Publisher, our trade magazine, Mr. Reston wrote in part as follows: "There were certain factors in this election that were known (and dicsounled) by almost every political reporter. We knew about the tradition that a defeated candidate had never been nominated and elected after his defeat. We know that the national income was running at a rate of 210 billion dollars a year, that over (il million persons were employed at unprecedently high wages, and that the people had seldom i£ ever turned against the administration in power at such a time "Vet while reporters on the Truman and Dewey campaign trains discussed all these points, each in his own way (including this reporter) was carried away by facts he did not verify, by theories he did not fully examine, and by assumptions he did not or could not check."

But military observers Third Anniversary Finds UN Still Promising Despite Ills By JAMES THRASHER United Nations Week, which commemorates the third anniversary of its active history, finds the world organization with not too much to boast about. Certainly the hope of peace has deteriorated since the fall of 1945. And certainly most of the UN's efforts to prevent that deterioration have been discouragingly unsuccessful. There are two big reasons for this discouragement. One is the unlimited velo power of the Big Five, a serious weakness of the UN charter. The other is the behavior of some of the member governments, which is not a fault of the United Nations as such. The veto,or even the ever-present threat of its use, has blocked a number of urgent actions. The most vital of these is a UN agreement on atomic energy control. Otliei consequences include the failure to get anywhere with conventional disarmament or to establish a UN armed force to end the civil war in Greece. Ihe Palestine conflict is a disappointment for which the veto cannot be blamed. So is the lack ol progress in some ol the less-publicized UN committees. Their important, but rather intangible and Jong-range, assignments uikc human rights, for example) have run up against a Russian refusal to sacrilice national self-interest or to yield an inch in Communist-police state ideology against the pressure of world opinion. But still one has to ask what the condition of world affairs would be today without the UN. And the answer could not very well be u pleasant one. At worst, the present condition is better than secret diplomacy and more iron curtains. It is better than a situation in which growing tensions would be subject to no official, concerted notice or comment by the world's governments. At best, the present condition is improved by an organization which at least keeps discussion going in an atmosphere of growing realism, it not of growing optimism. The UN has not given up discussion and eliort so long as they were possible.lt still commands the nominal respect and support of its members. And that is imporlanl. even though the allegiance of some member yGvennnents seerus scarcely lo amount to lip service at times. At the end of three years the world organization's great need is tor a continuing and healthier life in which the great Weakness of the veto it; remedied. Nothing is lo be gained by a suggestion of ids- solving the UN. or even of dismissing il cynically as all impotent debating society. inasmuch as the were known to said the Communist report might be true ' ' .. _ • munists massed a .roops 100 miles to the North.

Such a victory would give Red Forces an opening wedge for' a drive between Peiping and Tientsin. In that case, Nationalist Gen. Fu Tso-Yi's forces, now scattered along the railroad between the two cities farther West, would be bypassed. The tribunal noted that Japan lad drawn up plans to govern Si- aeria and outer Mongolia. Germany tried to get Japan to attack Russia, and Japan was inclined to do so when the German war against Russia was going well, the court found. But then Russian resistance stiffened, the Japanese— the Tokyo leadership now on trial here—played for time, saying they wanted to attack the Soviets at the most propitious time. The defense had claimed that the Japanese plans against the Soviet were similar to those of the Anti- Communist powers today. But the court ruled that the Japanese plans "were not a defense against Communism, but rather the occupation of Far Eastern Siberia." Proof of preparation for aggression against Russia came with the signing of the aix pact against Russia, the court found. Washington, Nov. 9 — OPi — Democratic leaders turned a cold shoulder today on the proposal by Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt that States' Rights supporters be purged from the party. National Chairman J. Howard McGrath told a reporter it will be up to the Democratic members of the House and Senate to decide who gets the prized chairmanships in the new Congress. He hinted further — but didn't say so flatly—that any reprisal program such as Mrs. Roosevelt suggested wouldn't fit in with current efforts to solidty Democrats t behind the legislative proposals i President Truman will send to 1 Congress in January. In a radio broadcast from Paris yesterday, Mrs. Roosevelt said she would like to see "the permanent ousting of the Southern Dixiecrats from the Democratic party."

A spokesman for Woods gave this word to reporters today. He said the housing expediter believes the new law should carry criminal penalties for violations and should plug "some of the loopholes in the present law." The proposed one-year continuation of rent controls would be from next March 31, when the By United Press Winter spread its white blanket )f snow over northwestern Arkanas today and sent temperatures :kidding' well below the free/.ing cvcls.

UN Studies Berlin Currency pact proably will be broadened to invite all the nations of the world to join in a common front against communism, a Canadian government source said today. As such it will bolster the United Nations by setting up an international police force of its own, this source declared. Moreover, the informant said, Canada is pressing to include in the definition of "agrcssion" such a political coup as that carried ou by the Communists in Czechoslovakia last spring. Preliminary stages of the North Atlantic alliance are now being worked out in informal talks here, .in London and in Washington. The ' source who revealed some of the details of the plan now Hearing draft stage has been close to the discussions at cabinet level. (In London, a British foreign office spokesman said that delegates Paris, Nov. 9 — f/P)— Secretary General Trygve Lie has assigned his top United Nations legal experts to study the Berlin currency problem. . Neutal efforts to find a solution of the Berlin crisis broke down last month, mainly over the currency question. Soviet Russia wants Soviet-sponsored marks to bo the i only legal money in the blockaded city. Both Western Marks and Soviet Marks circulate in blockaded Western Berlin. Apparently witli the view of learning all the angles of that issue. Lie directed A. H. Feller, his chief attorney., to prepare a report on formed expected to complete his study in a few days. A U. N. Spokesman said Lie is mot taking part in any negotiations on the Berlin deadlock. The U. N. look this unusual i'l.p in issuing a statement for Lie after a report was published in New York (New York Times) that the secretary-general was preparing a new compromise proposal on the Berlin crisis. .vAmong oVher things, slated, Woods" 'will ask: 1. Control over evictions. 2. Triple damages to tenants who are over-charged. 3. Criminal penalties for rent ceiling violations, including fines or jail terms or both. The spokesman indicated tnnt the idea as to federal control ovei evictions is to give tenants some period of time during which they could not be evicted. At present, evictions are governed by the local laws in each community. The recommendations to be urged by Woods would restore virtually all the teeth contained in rent control when it was admin istcred by OPA in wartime. The triple-damage provision is not contained in the present act which went into effect last Apri 1. The only penalty which can b<_ invoked by the office of the nous ing expediter is the restoration to the tenant of the actual amount o. the overcharge. n sas Jailed in Michigan Hopper Chopper Latest entry in the grasshopper gulping derby is Hazel Ford, 25, Northwestern University journalism student.

Clay Berlin, Nov. 9 — (UP) — The Russian blockade has put deep crimps in the economy of west Berlin, with industry stagnating and unemployment shooting up* military government officials reported today. Gen. Lucius D. Clay said in his monthly report as American military governor that production and turnover in the western sect6rs was only 20 per cent of the pre- olockade figures, and that nearly 39,000 persons were wholly or partially unemployed, ' British officials differed on the production figure, but even they said it was only 45 to 50 per cent of that before the Soviet blockade was imposed. American and British authorities agreed that unemployment had been boosted 10 per cent by the blockade. • < "The condition of the workers becomes worse daily," Clay said in his report. "Many are forced either to borrow money or bell personal possessions in order to meet their financial obligations." Because of the Soviet freeze on city funds in the Central City bank in the Russia sector, 73,000 Berlincrs have failed to get their pensions. Clay reported.

Prosecutor Robert W. Kempner, in his closing argument in the "Whilhelmstrasse" war crimes trial, said: "The defendants in this case arc more culpably responsible and deserve no less punishment than the German soldiers and civilians who have been sentenced to death for enforcing the murder policy transmitted to them from above." Kempner said the killing of confined prisoners was a direct violation of the laws of war, then add ed: "Under the provision of this policy, the defendants of tho foreign office were fully advised and prepared to 'cover up' diplomatic notes to the protective powers upon inquiry." The chief defendant is Ernst Von Weizsaecker, former secretary of state and one-time German envoy to the Vatican. Other prominent defendants include: Otto Dietrich, chief of press control under Joseph Gpebbcls and press liason officer with the foreign office.

(The British war office in London issued a denial, saying "we have no troops kkn Trans-Jordan and there is no question .of. , any British troops going back into Palestine since the evacuation.")

The Arab legion of Trans-Jordan is British trained and subsidized. It bore the brunt of the summer fighting in the Jearttsalem area. Unofficial reports persisted here today that the Egyptians are evacuating Gaza, a southern Palestine port which partition gave to the Arabs.

These informants said the British came from troop bases at Mafrak and Aquaba, Trans-Jordan. (A section of this dispatch (delayed.
