Our Daily Bread Sliced Thin by The Editor -Alex. H. Washburn Maybe There's Some Trurh in Frartce, at That At first glance there was a wry thought behind yesterday's headline: "France Hopes to Make Atom Bombs by 1953." But the text of the Paris disoatch said: "The French high commissioner of atomic energy insisted, however, that the French government is interested in atomic energy only for peaceful purposes." And, to be perfectly frank, you have to give the French the benefit of the doubt. Even though we are contributing billions of American dollars to the economic relief of France and Europe the suspicion that this is being diverted to atomic research for war-making purposes is hardly justified.

It may be—and this is a comforting thought as Christmas draws near—that the eventual history of atomic development will be pretty much like the history of all the other great discoveries that preceded it. You can make out a case of war-mongering against the invention of dynamite and the airplane, , «or instance, but you can't make the charge stick. Both the airplane adri dynamite arc basic elements Chiang Kai-shek said peace was possible if Chiang Kai-shek is ousted "right away". cers closed Sanders reported. The pledge to ' defend Peiping I charge, was made by Gen. Fu Tso-yi, com-' mandcr in the north. Nationalists and Communists are fighting only three miles from the isolated city on the west. The Reds were reported thrown back on the east and south. The police lieutenant said Clarence Bryant, 25, Dallas, surrendered to police when his companion was killed. Bryant is being held on an open not of today's peace-time life— merely weapons of war. The invention of dynamite recalls a classic charge. Alfred Nobel (1833-96) invented dynamite in 1867 arid a little later produced smoke- ess powder. He built many factories for explosives throughout the world—and before his death was accused of being king of the war- makers. v But the gifted Swedish engineer *.vas actually a man of peace, and his explosives did far more work in peace-time than in war, excavating for engineers, ' blasting for minors, and clearing fields for farmers. Let us hope as much for atomic energy. There is more profit applying new tools to peace-time pursuits than to war—and, finally, it is men. not tools, who decide whether we are going to have war or peace. U. S. Distaste for Fascism Leaves Franco Out on Limb By JAMES THRASHER I James A. Farley has returned from Europe with the conviction that we ought to establish diplomatic relations with Franco Spam. And he told the Overseas Press Club in New York tint on nis recent tour he didn't meet "any person of any importance" who disagreed with him. The former postmaster general blames "a group in the Stale Dc•^ ,iarlinont" for. our present policy. He thinks that since we disregarded communism in making a defensive wartime alliance with Russia, we should make a similar arrangement with Franco with an equal disregard of his unsavory [regime. "It's difficult for tho Spanish people to understand our attiude," Mr. Farley said. "They can't sec why we are spending billions of dollars in Germany and Italy, our wartime enemies, and yet are unfriendly enough to bar Spain from Anon-military conferences on health and aviation." Our attitude may puzzle Mr. Farley and the important people who agree with him as much as it does the Spaniards. But American policy really isn't such a mystery. Tho billions we arc spending in Germany and Italy are not marks of sentimental friendliness. They The Communists captured the air field seven miles south of Peip- ing. Four foreign correspondents with a Nationalist courier party, which arrived by plane Friday, were driven away from the field by gunfire when they attempted to return to Nanking today. Associated Press Correspondent Harold K. Milks, a member of the party, got within a mile of the field. He said the Reds held the airport control tower.

Informed sources said this course has been selected by diplomatic and military leaders as the jest bet to cope with recent Communist advances in China. These sources said the Japanese economic stabilization program, announced yesterday by the army and state department, was in line with the new policy of bolstering Japan. Gen. Douglas MacArlhur was ordered to direct the Japanese to achieve economic stability "as rapidly as possible. Japan was instructed to put into effect a sweeping nine-point economic program to combat inflation and speed recovery. At present that country is costing American taxpayers some $1.000.000,000 a year to support. The government announcement implied, that U. S. funds for Japan might be cut if the reforms failed.
