PAOBS1X ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH WEDNESDAY, JUNE 4, 1552 Editorial Find Competition Stiff tit Take Over Seawall Cdt. ft fi. ReMttfi 6f the Army Engineers opened UiJ rome new avenues of thought about financing tht $410,600 local share of the proposed $3,900,000 jeawall here when he talked to the GAAC's national affairs committee Tuesday. Heretofore the principal dealings of the Engineers have been with the city government. That naturally led to the impression that it would" be up ta the city government td finance the project, Sev* eratoptions would be available there. One would be a local improvement action. Another might be a general bond issue. And there is an Illinois statute providing for financing sewers with revenue bond issues—to be retired out of revenue obtained front Operation of the sewers, \> Coli Ressieu's explanation broadened the pros* pects, though. He suggested that such things had been undertaken by levee districts, too. All of which would open the way for either an invitation to the Wood River drainage and levee district to extend its boundaries and make the project all one with the work it 'a now completing. Or a separate levee district in the benefited area could be formed. Standing farther over the horizon might even be the Illinois and Missouri Bi-State Agency. Long before this area must find the money to take care of its seawall expense share, we will have ample chance to judge Bi-Statc's efficiency and ability, since it should be breathing life very soon into its Granite City wharf project. With these things in view, perhaps the agency which wants to undertake the project had better get a hustle on, We flftay Find Our World at Ultima Thnle Ultima Thulc was the name given by the ancients to the most northerly land in their geography. It has come to mean the utmost boundary or limit. Only through one medium can we travel to ulti- ma Thule — the medium of imagination. This thought arose the other day in connection with recent predictions of the world tomorrow, the atomic world. The mathematical genius, Albert Einstein, throfigh the "eyes" of his mind saw the relationship of energy and matter and expressed it. This set the,trend of progress toward the world'* new future. It follows that the product of many men's Side Glance* If G«fbr«ttHi Cooking Up Ideas On the Rare Potato The shortage of potatoes, deplored by many of u», hasn't bothered the girl at the next desk. A staff member, assigned to write an editorial, asked this girlt "What are you complaining about these days? Aren't you mad at something? Tell me what it is, and I'll write an editorial about it. The crusading spirit is rising in me." "Well," said she, smiling coyly, "I'm not mad about the potato shortage. They're harder to get, so I don't eat them, and that, helps me to reduce. And the doctor told the not to eat potatoes. So, you see, I'm not mad about the potato . . . , " And that's what happens to the crusading spirit. This girl t was left absolutely cold by the shortage of spuds. The moment she mentioned potatoes we thought of a heaping pile of mashed potatoes, a well in the middle filled with rich gravy from prime rib of beef; and of mashed potatoes smothered in turkey gravy; and of boiled potatoes, swimming in butter and garnished with parsley. In the contemplation of such matchless food, we sank slowly into a mental stage of ecstasy. The office furniture began to swim, the typewriter faded, our imaginations will produce this future world and continue on—to ultima Thulc. Each true product of the mind may not be a physical fact as quickly as was Einstein's idea, but each, in its way, continues to build on the stones that top a basic knowledge rHofe ancient than the pyramids. So it is fitting that we take time on occasion to depart from our little worries, our pondering of the day's work, and think of the nature of this vehicle of thought called imagination. We must know it in terms of its product. A general tendency of a segment of the national population toward enjoyment of imaginative things is evident in the ever-increasing sale of so- called science fiction magazines. These pulps deal with matters of space and time often in a manner stimulating to the intellect. Consider the intriguing possibilities of these plots, recalled at random from science fiction: A man invents i race of small people fp whom short time is so long that a few minutes of'his time occupies generations of time for the little people. He gives them vast problems to solve over their centuries. (Eventually they revolt- and defeat him with the science of their accelerated progress). An army private invents a small object that will cause steel to disintergrate and makes possible the defeat of all modern armies. Because time and space arc relative, a group of rocketeers in the future proceeds billions of miles from earth at amazing speed for two years of their lives—to return and find the earth has grown several generations older. One of the most interesting plots is that the world is the product of a superior being's imagination and that, if he didn't think it existed, it wquld not. Those are some plots from science fiction. Is that not a journey to ultima Thulc? Perhaps there— in ultima Thule—is the solution to the world's problems. 25 and 50 Years Ago r. M. *>(. u.». fit off. 1tS2 k» NM fenlM. be.

Pearson's Merry-Go-Round Secret Chinese Cables WASHINGTON, June 4.—Copies of more secret Chinese cables have just been obtained by this columnist, showing how the Chiang Kai- Shek government conspired to pull the United States into a third world war and how Chiang,,was In frequent touch with Gen. MacArthur behind the State 'department's back. The cables were sent by the Chinese embassy in Washington to Chiang in Formosa and have now been,.translated officially by the Library of Congress. The most amazing cable Is dated Dec. 5,1949, and states: "Our hope of a world war so as to rehabilitate our country is unpalatable to the (American) people." This policy of embroiling the United States in a third world war in order to rehabilitate Chiang apparently was established immediately after the Red invasion of Korea on June 25, 1950. For, in a cable dated July 14, just three weeks after the invasion, the Chi- V nese embassy warns that they must be patient about their plan to extend the Korean war to the rest of the Asia mainland. "Whether the Chinese Communists send troops to Korea or not is one of secondary importances" the Chinese embassy cabled Chiang, "but the war in South Korea will be extended in any case. We should remain patient at this time. Whether or not the war will extend to other places in Europe and Asia, we should make little comment and wait for the development of the situation." Apparently the Nationalist Chinese had reason to believe that certain of their American friends would manage to spread the war Alton Evening Telegraph Published by Alton Telenaph Printini Company. P.

Chicago. Detroit whether Chinese Communists came into Korea or not. Subsequent cables made it clear that Gen. MacArthur was one of these friends, Chinese Politburo These amazing cables were prepared jointly by the Chinese embassy's five top policy makers. They formed a sort of "Politburo" inside the embassy, reporting direct to Chiang Kai-shek over the head of Ambassador VVellington Koo. In fact, one of their cables actually discusses the fitness of the ambassador to remain on the job. The "Big Five," who actually overruled the ambassador, were: Chen Chih-mai, Peter T. K. Pee, \V. K. Li, K. H. Yu and Gen. P. T. Mow. They signed their cables with a joint code signature, "Kung," the Chinese word for "group." The cables ara full of references Showing that the nationalists worked closely, sometimes secretly, with Gen. MacArthur. For example, the politburo in,side the Cliinese embassy reported, May 31, 1950: "(Jen,, MacArthur will never give Up assisting Formosa. The above things are said to be coming from the mouth of Gen. WUloughby, himself," Again, on June 29, 1950—right after the Korean invasion — the group, pr "Kung," cabled: "There are (advantages and drawbacks whether pr not we send troops to assist in resisting North Korean aggression. If our government has decided to send, troops, they should be limited to $ojn£ of our best troops and the opinion pf Gen. Mac- Artfajujr shwld he obtained prior to theijr dispatch," i Marshall vs. MacArthur A still later cable, dated July 7, 1950, laments: "It is impossible to expect a fundamental change in their (the administration's) policy toward China, but Gen. MacArthur has a deeper understanding of us. We should pay attention to our liaison work in Tokyo, so as to influence the capital." And on Sept. 12, 1950, the "Kung" inside the embassy reported: "There is a difference in political opinion between Marshall and MacArthur, and their personal animosity is very deep. Therefore, MacArthur's position will become increasingly difficult ... At present we receive material help from MacArthur's headquarters." A report that MacArthur 1 was planning to send American troops to occupy Formosa, back in 1949, is contained in a cable, dated Dec. 28, 1949. 'It is learned from senators who returned from the Far East," reports the cable, Arthur believes 'that Gen. Mac- that, before the Japanese peace treaty is signed, America may send troops to occupy Formosa, but the' Department of State and military headquarters (Pentagon) are worried that such action may produce domestic and international, complications — so policy toward Formosa is still under consideration." Just before MacArthur's famous visit to Formosa, when he gallantly kissed Madame Chiang's hand, the "Kung" reported in a cable, dated May 16, 1950: Chih-mai has visited many friends and they seem to think that the key to American assistance depends upon Gen. MacArthur's visit to Formosa, and the newspapermen all have the same impression. Our friends think that this is possible because a peace treaty with Japan has not been signed. If we can work out a case of general defense with MacArthur's headquarters,.then Congress may support it." Overruling the Ambassador The trouble over Ambassador Wellington Koo, who is supposed to be the boss of the Chinese embassy, was discussed in a cable dated Jan. 17, 1950. Koo's five "subordinates" cabled Chiang Kai-shek: 'When Madame (Chiang) was here In America, she expressed dissatisfaction with Ambassador Koo, : md we hear that the government has intentions to replace him. We hink that Koo is not the ideal person, but because of his reputation and contributions, we believe he has done his best and ought not to be •eplaced. At this time, when the American administration is trying o recognize the Chinese Commun- sts, we should not make any changes in diplomatic personnel." Three months later, on April 4, 950, the five complained again ibout the diplomatic personnel, as ollows: "Our diplomatic contacts are in- reasingly important, but our offi- ers are not at their posts and hose who stay in America are not uitable persons to discharge their esponsibilities." LONDON, June 4 ~ Discussions here with members of the government as well as the opposition reveal clearly why there has been such a divergence of opinion between the United States and Great Britain over Far East questions. There is< a total unawareness here of the motivating influences which have caused the American people to feel so deeply about the sacrifices troops in made Korea. reader, Korea is just an incident. It is even less than a "police action" in the sense that other troubles in the world are considered to be far more important. The British are more concerned over what has happened in Malaya and Iran, TOONERVILLE FOLKS By Fontaine Fo.v MICKEY (HlMSEUF) MC<3UIRE over the danger spots in Egypt and North Africa. When reminded of the sacrifices being made by Americans in the Far East, there is, of course, deep sympathy and expressions of admiration for the bravery of our troops. But at the same ,time there is a tendency to argue that a "limited war" is all that can be expected no matter what course the truce talks take. If Britons are asked why intervention in Korea was approved in the first place when the risks of a large-scale war were even greater then than they are today, there is no clear answer given except that it was important to "halt aggression." Yet when it is pointed out that aggression hasn't really been halted, the reply usually is made that it was a good attempt anyway. Talking with some of the leaders about the problem of Red China, i seems to be taken for granted tha the British government in due tim not only will reaffirm its positioi in respect to diplomatic recognitioi of the Communist government, bu will some day argue for the ad mission of Red China into th United Nations. At the moment i is regarded by Britons as indiscree to say much about this, but ther can be no question about the ulli mate intention of Great Britain t bring Red China into the Unitec Nations. If it is suggested that this is "rewarding the aggressor,' there is a shrug of the shoulders and a comment that "well, there are lots of unpleasant things tha have to be done in the world whei you are dealing with Russia." Basically it is a peace-at-any price sentiment. It runs througt both political parties here. It is understandable, of course, in a way because Britain was bombcc regularly for several years during World War II and, while the British will fight valiantly in the future as they have in the past, they may actually wait for an attack on their own territory before they give their consent to anything resembling a large-scale war. Perhaps one of the most disconcerting aspects of British foreign policy is the tendency to water down every action which tends to show firmness on the allied side. The other day, when there was talk in the United States about a possible naval blockade in the event that truce talks in Korea broke down, the laborites were quick to interrogate the Conservative government here, The foreign secre- Comic's Comic Shows Secret Of Funnymen By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK, /P-Henny Youngman is known along Broadway as a man so funny that even other comedians laugh at him.

He not only has spent his life making fun. Fun is his life. Henny, now 46,, is one of the na:ion's top night club entertainers. Some connoisseurs of the industry say he is the equal of Groucho Marx, Fred Allen, Bob Hope or Milan Berle. He is often a guest star on other shows, but has never had a national television show of his own. Comedians stuck for a sure-fire 'ast line or a quip often come to Youngman for help. And he always las one handy—or makes up one on he spot. He is a walking file case of thousands of jokes, old, middle- aged, and new ones ready to be )orn. The curse of Henny, whose habi- at is Times Square and who lopes around like a polar bear in a brown oat, is that he gives away jokes as fast as he can think them up. "Just a minute," he says, stopping a friend, and begins throwing a jest a second. All free. Ad libbing is so natural with him e can't quit. Naturally he likes to get paid. But he has been known to waste $10,000 worth of fresh material ad libbing while at liberty with a few cronies around a- restaurant table. One week he mailed out dollar bills with a sign saying, "Hold on to this green piece of paper. It may be worth a dollar someday." To be a professional comic today, Henny says, you have "to have nerve and gall, a great memory, and the ability to take stock jokes and give them a twist that makes them sound alive. You have to be equipped to joke on any subject." Just to test Kenny's own staccato wit, I asked him to make a joke about wives. I should have known better, Without even a pause Henny began rattling: "Now, you take my wife — and there's an offer. "My wife cost me a fortune. She went into a department store, broke her leg—and what happened? They gift-wrapped it. "My wife talks so much that when I got back from Miami her tongue was sunburned ..." Henny halted, looked at his watch, and said he was late for a rehearsal of the Milton Berle show. As he left, he was still .muttering rapid-fire patter: "My wife read It was good to vash her hair in beer. She tried it. t didn't do her hair any good, but now she has the happiest dandruff n town.

Robert S. Allen Reports Challenges Power WASHINGTON, June 4. — President Truman isn't the only one whose powers are being challengeti by members of Congress. Sen. A. Willis Robertson (D.-Va.) thinks Congress itself goes too far at times. He voiced this unusual view during a closed-door meeting of the Senate appropriations committee. Gordon Clapp, head of the Tennessee Valley Authority, urged that funds be granted for the construction of four steam plants to produce electric power. Clapp jointed out the plants are needed 'or armament production. "Congress has already authorized these steam plants," Clapp ar- jued, "and all we are asking is :hat the funds be made available :o start work on them." "I don't question that Congress las authorized these plants," declared Robertson, "but I am wondering what authority Congress has o do that kind of authorizing. Personally, I don't think Congress has he authority to build any kind of plant, whether it is to produce slectricity or steel." "That question is out of my ield," replied Clapp. "I am an •ngineer and I am v not qualified to liscuss constitutional matters. All know is that Congress authorized htese plants and they are very bad- y needed for the atomic energy rogram and other defense meas- res." "Maybe so," asserted Robertson, but I still don't think Congress as the authority to build plants." Q. Is Good Friday a legal holiday in the United States? K. H. A.

The aged and ailing Nevadan ii a persistent clamorer for more loans and grants to Dictator Franco, but that didn't keep McCarran from voting to slash $500,000,000 from the foreign aid bill. That drew instant fire from Senator Tom Connally (D.-Tex.) ' The peppery chairman of the foreign relations committee rushed over to McCarran's desk and angrily snapped, "I thought you were going to stay put. We've given you everything you asked for Spain and then some. What's the idea of voting for this $500,000,000 cut?" "It's going to be all right," insisted McCarran. "I arranged for a switch on told you I this amendment. 1 arranged that you MIRROR OF YOUR MIND wouldn't lose a vote." "You arranged what?" exclaimed Connally. "That's right," said McCarran, "I arranged to switch my vote and got one in its place so everything would come out all right for you. Just take it easy and stop worrying." Still muttering, Connally returned to his seat. McCarran's assurances turned out correct. His switch did not hurt the Adminis:ration as the amendment was de- 'eated. Inside reason for McCarran's strange conduct was "home consumption." The amendment, sponsored by Sen. Allen Ellender (D.-La.) proposed trimming $500,000,000 from economic aid for Europe. McCarran wanted his voting record tc show he favored such a slash in order to offset criticism in Nevada against his persistent demands foi aid for Dictator Franco. (Copyright. 1932) down, it would appear there won't be any fuss raised about it anyway, When confronted with the implication of that kind of tactics, the British say, "Well, it is important to answer the questions of the Laborites in Parliament." Tha insularity of this approach and the indifference of the consequences throughput the world of a British public statement is something that is incomprehensible to anyone who has been schooled to believe that there is a universal alliance today of free nations, that they are working in harmony, arid that their troops are fighting side by side against Soviet imperialism. incidentally, a "left wing" 1 old this writer he couldn't understand why in the eyes of the United States there was such a prejudice against Communism when, after all, it was just a philosophy of life, mmediately upon being advised hat the real antipathy in America against Communist imperial the question was asked, "Where has there been evidence of It?" The "left wing" echoes the cry that the Chinese Communists are merely retaliating against American aid to Formosa. Plainly, there Is a wide divergence from the American point of view in connection with the Far East. The gap can be illustrated in the suggestion made to this correspondent by one "left toing" leader to the effect that the United Stales should conclude a truce by offering to withdraw its aid from Formosa and turn the island over to the Red Chinese. It is certainly a paradox in the relationships of allies.
