Our Doily read Sliced Thin by The Editor Alex. H. Washburn — Land Conquest hW in Scheme of Modern Men The Dutch, for whose people and history Americans have the utmost respect, appear to be making a bloody and desperate gamble in e Far East. Ihey have thrown armed forces into the field against the newly- iounded Indonesian republic, asserting that it is a required "police action" and promising it will be "a short war." The United Nations settled this matter once with a truce which recognized the existence of the native republic. Now the UN is called back lo the scene by an act of aggression—an act which makes •the United Stales particularly hot, since it is obvious that American equipment and dollars given the European Dutch arc being used in this war of conquest against natives. The idea that the nature of men changes, or that the declaration of a "new era" has any real effect on history, may be sharply discounted. But one thing is true': Force can deal with force; and the organization of the United Nations, plus the inauguration of the American relief program for F/u- rope, has set up a powerful road block against the resumption oC WEATHER Arkansas: Cloudy, to ..partly cloudy, colder this nftcrriooiii in south, central portions .lonvight.

The Dutch, being among the world's most alert people, certainly know the risk they are taking. So tilt: full extent of their gamble is disclosed. Looking at the troubles ^if Great Britain, shorn of most * of her empire, the Dutch may have decided that life without empire is unbearable —and that if they recover Indonesia they may not need any American financial help. But the Dutch are a mighty small nation to be attempting singlehancled lo knock down the 20th century taboo that there shall be no more wars of conquest. The United States will, of course, weigh the facts about whether Dutch military are still required to keep law and order in Indonesia, but from this distance it appears Holland has posed a question for the world at Christmas-time—and may get an answer by New Year's. * * -d UN's Human Ricjhts Bill Ranks With Great Documents By JAMES THRASHER It is easy to be cynical about the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights.

So ilher jumped or fallen to his death up two years in high-sounding, high-minded debate before the declaration was finally drafted. Some of its provisions are violently opposed by governments whose boundaries contain great sections of the earth. Others are contrary to the social and cultural traditions of millions. Yet we cannot help feeling that this declaration is important and encouraging. Russia and her satellites are against it, naturally. They will never approve it so long as the present governments or their Communist descendants control those countries. For the declaration is built on a foundation of individual rights and freedoms, which is the antithesis of Marxist philosophy. But what seems significant to us is not the opposition, but the support it received from so many governments. It is remarkable and hopeful that lhc represent^- | lives of peoples so different in history, religion, customs and living standards could agree un so many points. Thus the world's Declaration ot Human Rights is born into a finite different atmosphere from that in which the American Declaration 01 Independence and Bill ot Rights found themselves. These brave manifestos were political heresy. They were launched into a hostile world. Even though we may not always live up to the ideal of their sentiments, the rights and beliefs ex- f pressed in those documents have changed man's thouglvt and aspirations everywhere. 'Iiicy appeared Inlploss and hopeless at birth. But today they rank with the Magna Charta. the English Bill of Right:;, the French Declaration of the Kights of Man and. alas, the Communist Manifesto among the most profound political influences on human history. Proof of this is found in the UN s action on the new declaration. For the declaration took much of its inspiration from the American Bill *• of Rights, and it won the support <;f a rnajority ui world goveni- in'.-nts. The princjnal difference between tlvo American and the world Bill of Rights is one of scope.

The office industrial coordination has set a hearing here 29 on a proposed voluntary plan whereby the steel industry would provide 23.000 tons of steel to the East Tennessee Natural Gas-Co. The company would build a 22- inch pipeline from Mitchellvillc. Tenn., to the atomic energy plant at Oak Ridge. Thatcher said he will oppose the plan at the hearing. If the 'steel is allotted for the Oak Ridge pipeline, he told a reporter, then there will be an additional delay in building a pipeline to the Lake Catherine, Ark., steam power plant. This plant is to provide power for operation of Aluminum Production Lines at Jones Mill, Ark. "We've been trying to get the two additional aluminum pot lines at Jones Mill into operation for a long time. The aluminum production is needed to break a shortage of aluminum wire which is hold ing up much rural electrification," Thatcher,.said. . . "It is my'contention that unless the atomic energy commission can show that it needs this gas for activities which are in defense of the nation, then it should take its turn for steel like any other private in ctustry." Thatcher said he would hold to this contention unless and until the national resources board rules that gas for uses at the atomic energy plant is more important than the Local and slate officers arrested two men, seized a large quantity of Morphine and complete set of burglary tools about 10 p.m. Hst night 2 miles east of Hope on Highway 67.
