Need No Help of Red China To Speed Jap Peace Treaty One positive, stable element that tan be injected into the troubled Far Eastern situation is forma) peace with Japan. '.'. Consequently the newest Japanese mission of John Foster Dulles is o£ the highest importance. • There is no question Dulles went to Tokyo at this particular time to reassure Japan that General MacArlhur's dismissal does not mean a change in U. S. policy there. . The Japanese have revered MacArthur as if he were a sort of substitute smperor. In their curious feudal psychology he was perhaps just that. Cer- •_• tainly he symbolized the power of the United States and stood for security against threats of all kind. Certainly, too, MacArthnr's conduct of the occupation was superior. It.was without major incident. It reflected solid understanding of Japanese problems in - their full Asiatic setting. It was virtually a model. But in any event, with luck it was • destined to end in the, next six mouths ' or so. For the U, S. is hopeful a Japanese treaty may be concluded by that time. Hence the job now is to convince the Japanese the treaty project will go forward with dispatch—along lines already set—and to maintain Mac Arthur's successful occupation policies in the interim. Dulles is probably better fit than almost any American to offer the needed reassurances at this moment. He has done an outstanding: job in preparing for the Japanese treaty. Quietly and efficiently he has sketched out the basic features of the proposed pact and has won substantial acceptance of those terms from the Japanese and the other Pacific powers concerned. It remains now to cast this work into formal documents which can be presented for ratification by the victors and vanquished. Any substantial delay would rob this country and its 1'acific allies of the constructive initiative that, thanks to Dulles, they have been able to exhibit on this vital problem. The United States has rejected a British proposal that Red China be consulted on the peace treaty. Britain was merely taking its standard view that, since the Commumnist regime is the actual ruling government, it would be "unrealistic" to conclude a Japanese pact without hearing Red China's attitude on it. But in fact it's the other way around. It is wholly unrealistic to invite the Communists' • participation in treaty talks at any stage. Enough is known of Red tactics by now to appreciate that in this or any other negotiation their aim would be solely to disrupt and undermine. 2*fao Tse-tmig has done practically . nothing to warrant his being taken seriously as a responsible lender among the •family of nations. Whatever his purposes, he has behaved like % military ad• venturer. Oh the rare occasions when his representatives have joined in international discussion, they have made blatant propaganda noises bearing no relation to the uIterances of sincere statesmen. Mao doesn't belong at the peace table. The United States seems well advised to proceed with treaty arrangements with no thought of opening them to the destructive devices of the Communists. The goal here is peace with Japan. Efforts to entangle Dulles' fine work with the issue of our recognition of Red China can only obscure that objective. WEDNESDAY, APRIL 28, 1981' An Affront to Good Taste Protocol doesn't -demand otherwise, but it would have been nice if President Truman could have seen his way clear to designating someone other than Maj.- Gen.' Harry Vaughn to greet General MacArlliur on his Washington arrival. Vaughn is indeed the President's military aide and as such is supposed to perform such ceremonial duties as greeting returning heroes and visiting dignitaries. But "Deep Freeze" Harry Vaughn has gone so far toward casting off his own dignity that it's hard to see how he can be expected (o lend any to such occasions, Jlr. Truman probably, did not, intend this as a snub to MacArthur, since the President is too keenly aware of Ihe political dynamite in the whole affair. There was no precedent in recent history compelling the President himself to greet the general at the airport. He did not meet General Eisenhower or any other World War 11 hero who came home ahead of MacArthur. What it boils down to is that Mr. Truman badly needs a Jiew military aide. All Americans must cringe'with embarrassment at the sight of one of its finest generals being welcomed in the President's name by a man with very questionable, to say 'the least, moral standards. Views of Others Golden And Universal Just how old Ls this noblg rule of human conduct which the Christian world Is accustomed to call the Golden Rule? And where outside of Christendom is this rule accepted by men? The Golden Rule is older Ihan Christianity. And it is well known and fairly well accepted in countries where Christianity has never taken root and where the precept* of Christianity are completely unknown. Almost all of the great religions leach the Golden Rule. True, they leach It in words somewhat- different from those employed by Jesus, but ' the meaning and the objective are always the samel Brahinniilsin. "This Is Hie sum of duly: naugh! unto others which would cause you pain If done to you." Buddhism. "Hurt not others In ways Dial you yourself would find hurtful." Confucianism. "Is there one maxim which ought to be acted upon throiigout one's whole life? Surely it Is the maxim of jiving kindness: DII not unto others what you would not have them do unto you." Taoism. "Regard your neighbor's gain as your own gain and your neighbor's loss as your own loss." Zoronstrianisin. "Tlial nature alone is good which refrains from doing unto another whatsoever is not good for Itself." Judaism. "What is hateful to you, do not to your fellowmen. That is the entire law; all the rest is commentary." Islam. "No one of you Ls a believer until he desires for his brother that which he desires for himself." Christianity. "AH Ihings whatsoever ye would that, mr-n should do to you. do ye even so to them: for this is a law of the prophets." Thus (he spirit of the Golden Rule is older than Christianity. Nor Is It limited to Christian teachings II is a nearly universal law of humanity and it Is voiced by nearly all religious and creeds.. Nor docs the universality of this rule deny Us divir.e origin. Rather It confirms it. It proves the solicitude of the creator for all KIs creatures everywhere, u is the mark of universal brotherhood. And it proves the kinship of humanity to the divine. Just now a wary and discouraged world is seeking a point on which all mankind can asree anrt thereby avert universal destruction. What ncttcr meeting point, can there possibly be than that Golden Rule of conduct which Ihe Infinite has given to most of the sons of men? —THB DAILY OKUAHOMAN 5O THEY SAY Geronimo!

Otherwise he would not have run the of the storm of, criticism stirred up by the /iring of Gen. Doiig- ".as MacArthur.

"The Comrade Minister demands In know what you think ot our Communist Premier Gotfcwald/' Friend Jon thought thU over for a moment, then said, "Why, comrade, I think of him the samt Ihftig.s you do," "So!" sa!ri the policeman.

But those 'who are careless about riiet or other treatment nni greaC danger from bleed- Ing and perforation. Bleeding from an ulcer can be exceedingly serious and is more common the longer the ulcer has been present. If the ulcer breaks' all the way through the stomach wall (perforation), an immediate operation is necessary. ft is not only because of f'hese serious complications that it Ls ini- porlant to lake good care of an ulcer, but also no one can feel really well or work efficiently If (he ulcer is causing distress constantly. Early diagnosis, appropriate treatment, and, on Ihe part of the patient, following directions accurately and consistently, are necessary to gel the best results. There is such a thine as learning to live with one's ulcer until it has healed. All the doctor can do is give advice. In addition, to the specific directions about diet, powders or other medicine, this usually includes a warning about living calmly, getting plenty ol rest, adequate vacations and similar general measures. Qdlte often all this involves a change in the routine of living and perhaps In altitude toward lite. MINOR V1CKS? A good many patients with ulcers question their doctors about smoking, coffee and alcohol. On this there are some differences of opinion though even the most liberal physicians will caution aeainst excessive use of any of these. Apparently smoking does not stimulate Ihe secretion of the stomach juices, but some ulcer patients definitely feel worse, from smoking just the same. Many doctors prohibit smoking entirely and some do not. Coflee and alcohol do stimulate the secretions of acid, and while they probably do not cause, an ulcer, there is no reason to believe thai [hey help one to heal either.

Britain's fiery left-wing minister of labor, has precipitated a political crisis which may have far- reaching consequences. This dramatic move might easily result in the downfall of Prime Minister Attlce's Socialist govern- 1 menl anrl the return of the CorrilP sei valive party to power under lead- • ershlp of former Prime Minister Winston Churchill. However, 1 believe Sevan's projects cuts a good deal deeper than that. Sevan's long range aim would seem to be to capture control of the i.abor (Socialist) party which, tinder the moderate leadership of Bevan would swing the party further left. Here ] t s i, nu | d ()e cml , naslzed thai, in speaking of a swine to the left, one refers to a more "extreme socialism. Communism I 5 not an issue In England, although it has Us followers. How Much Socialism Thus the Question rather is how much "socialism" the country shall have. All parties In England are pledgee to a welfare state of some sort. Bevan | 5 regarded as being an orthodox Socialist, on a constitutional basis. In explaining his resignation Bevan declared he quit because Britain .has been "dragged too far behind the wheels of American diplomacy." He is bitterly opposed to America's armament plans and has protested the arms expenditure n Britain's new budget. He declarer*) that the country's three vear 413 •" 160,000.000 arms program' "cannot be achieved without irreparable damage to the economy of Great Britain and the world." Bevan Objected Bevan objected to cuttine free medical services in favor of the rearmament program. He declared that the Socialists should pay for rearming by soaking (he rich in taxes, and not deprive the public of the free spectacles and false teeth he instituted as minister of health. The political crisis was deepened by the resignation of Harold Wilson, president of the board of trade who once was known as the "boy wonder" of the labor cabinet. Leaders of the Socialist Party called a secret emergency meeting" for todny 3f all Socialist members of parliament. - Tlie big question as lhj s is whitlen U how much following has Bevan got. Political experts figured in advance that he might have 30 members of the House of Commons with him—not a big following. However, 11 was foreseen that he might ne ablfi to split the party in caucus In that event Atllce" would be expected to resign as prime minister, since he would then lack a majority •Tt'l in the House of Commons, where Y | he has had a balance of a mere five votes. The hi: showdown mny mark the Mjinning of the. end for the Attiee 'iovernmrjit. It certainly may be expected to give a better idea of how iar socialism is to go in England. In 'h-.u fcuse. it will clear a rather murky political atmosphere. 75 Years Ago In Blyihevitle — Dr. t. n. Johnson has been re- electee! president of Blytheville's Rotary club. W. J.
