It is easy to register our firm belief in the inherent right of any people to full independence. We must note that the Dutch admit the right of Indonesia to independence but arc trying to create a commonwealth of nations of which the Indonesian republic would be a part. But what rights, if any, has Hol. land in this question of indcpend- ience? Well, in the first place the Netherlands established herself in the East Indies more than three centuries ago. Her roots run deep. The Dutch pulic has made heavy investments in Indonesia through the generations. So the Netherlands j maintains that she is under obliga I lions not only to protect the in- j vestments oi! her public but to safeguard the interests of all the 7/i.000,000 natives of the Indonesian archipelago. Ttiat brings us up against the present crisis. There arc in the East Indies several governments, of which the republic is one. The Dutch rum at creating an interim federal government of all these slates pending the development of Ihe commonwealth. All the governments excepting the republic agreed to this arrangement. The Dutch say the republic blew first hot and then cold on the proposition, bowing to warring elements within the govern- I merit. I Finally last weekend the Dutch took military "police action" the Indonesian I the U. N. may find a solution unfortunate, we 'perhaps. (against the republic. They claimed (that the Republican In-'had embarked on the preliminaries oi large scale hostilities in Java and Sumatra. Naturally this move by the Dutch has created something akin to con-i Rentonvillc.'

He was applauded when he i ahead \vit,i their program. All high 'Republican leaders arc in custody. The Netherlands troops have been cracUiiiL' down on subversive elements without great opposition. From a technical standpoint I suppose one would call the operation a success thus far. But the trouble is that while it may eliminate some trouble, it cannot cure. The struggle of the Indonesian re public to have its own way will still go on, especially since there are strong Communist elements in •inn indic-itea mo- ! l '"' AL - i>io-^"i IUL-IUJ- H.-V;UKIII/.I.-U it. •c";i>ect!vc)v of " winter i ! - his wncn sho Canted independ- This fresh upheaval is before the Missouri 'was 2.010,00;) ! cn "'^ l"; 11 ";.^ 18 ^ a V£,^'™^ !

The four-year-old child, born without hanus and arms below the elbow, says the metal de vices that iiave been strapped 1C her arm stumps are urgly. But her parents and officials at the Georgia stale welfare department, whic provided the appliances, hope Grace will learn to use them. Mrs. Helen Carr, supervisor of the department's division for crippled children, said the cur- ley-naircci child's reaction was not surprising. "Sho has never had arms or hands," Mrs. Carr explained, "and she nas no idea what they are lor." The applicanccs were provided alter a specialist said it would be impossible to give Grace hands and fingers thrugh plastic surgery. More than $2000 was contributed to a fund to provide tne child with plastic arms and hands. The iimd was starlet! by Henry R.
