Men who understand war, or any other major problem, know there is no eub- atitute /or first-hand study, especially * If a man can bring; an expert's eye to the scene. For Ike, this trip was more' than a campaign promise fulfilled. It was a necessity for him, both as a general and as a newborn politician who deeply wants to serve his people. By going \o Korea, Eisenhower has given top place to the problem that SB highest in the minds and hearts of all free men in these days. He has risen to the measure of his responsibilities and has taken the first broad stride toward providing America and the free world with the kind of dynamic leadership it BO sorely needs. From Whom All Blessings Flow Views of Others In Korea, Ike Took Stride Toward Great Leadership Not until General Eisenhower has! thoroughly digested the many things he learned in-Korea will America and tho world know what his specific plans ara for that Battle-torn land. '•" But his preliminary conclusions are Important.' He made plain there will be no U. S. withdrawal from Korean soil BO long as the issue stands in doubt: "We are here to see it through." At the other extreme, he indicated it i« his wish to avoid the "grave risk of enlarging the war." Yet his rejection of either withdrawal or a widening of the conflict does not mean he is resigned to endless staltmate on the present pattern. Said the general: "Much can be done to improve (imposition; Much will be done." Eagerly all Americans and all frte men will be waiting to discover what Eisenhower means by those words. Through them runs the fragile thread of hope. But while they are waiting, they mny reflect with satisfaction upon tht courage and selfless attention to duty of the man who "holds this hope. Eisenhower in Korea was more than a politician carrying out a campaign pledge. He was of course, his old military self, appraising the battle scent with keen eye. More than that, he was a man teaching himself, under pressure, how to become a statesman. Without endeavoring to evaluate the whole Far Kast, he sought to place Korea in its political setting, to see it not just as America views it but as the'other UN countries and the peoples of Asia look upon it. He was sharply conscious of the danger of casual or irresponsible comment, especially since he will not be President for more than a month. He came to see and to listen, not to talk. He covered more than half the width of the fighting front, though he never drew closer to combat zones than threfe miles. Prom the ordinary fighting man tip through divisional commanders to the top brass, Eisenhower hoard the detailed story of the war. From President Syngman Rhee of Korea, from Maj.- Gtn. Chase of the U. S. Military Mission to Formosa (Nationalist China), "- he had word of other phases of the Korean and Far Eastern problem. Almost to the point of forgetting the diplomatic niceties, Eisenhower focused on finding out the facts. There will be those at home who will say he could have learned as much . by a visit to tho Pentagon. They know Nest of Spies While the question of locating the headquarters of the United Nations was being discussed, and it seemed that New York would be chosen. The Lexington Leader' opposed that solution.. It said it would become a "nest of epics." That'WM obvious, if only for the reason that all delegate! of Communist nations, Russia and her eatelllWt, would take every advantage of their presenca in the United States under the cloak of immunity, lo advance the cause of the great conspiracy. But It turns out that Communists have coma clothed with Immunity as representatives of some of the free nations, and that American Communists have crept in wherever possible. Tlie McCarran committee has had a number of (he laller before it, Against, some the evidence was so strong that (hey have been thrown out, while others have been suspended and still others are on enforced leave awaiting final resulU.

By DOUGLAS LARSEN NEA Stiff Correspondent For PETER EDSON WASHINGTON — (NEA1 — Any new Ideas which President-elect Elsenhower 'comes up with for ending the war in Korea as a result of his vis- It there will have to do with land or sea action, according to Pentagon thinking. Th»,,.Air ; ' Force Is at a dead end "in "Korea, it is claimed. This Is implied by .Air Force Douglas Lmraen Chief of Staff ien. Hoyt S. Vandenberg In statements, made since his visit to the Korean theater. And it has been stated more bluntly by other air power advocates, Vandenberg's point Is that any widening of the air 'war in the Far East will require a mass shifting of units from other ports of the world. He says that the new Chinese Red air force is three limes bigger than the one of the UN there in both - personnel and planes. . • The general Is not particularly upset by the enemy odds againsl his forces with the war going the way it has. But, he says, if major attempt Is made to extend the air war, the odds would make difference. If UN plsnes should begin bomb g above the Yalu River, he says it might very well tempt the Reds to begin bombing Japan and th UN forces on the Korean pcnln SO THEY SAY ula; It could force a showdown them. And he isn't sure that hat is desirable. iEven If the Chinese air force 3' thoroughly licked In such a showdown, It .could turn out to e a Pyrrhic victory,-with losses n planes and pilots outweighing iny tactical or strategic gains. Increasing Effort Gains Little •There's ah even broader picture of the air situation there put forward,. The... arguments run like The two big Jobs which the Air Force is doing there now are in erdictlng enemy supplies and pro vldlng close support. TJnfortunate- y these activilies are the ones which the' Air Force Inherently does least !well. You could double or triple Interdiction efforts, at a tremendous cost, and come up with only small, increase * in net effect. II would not materially weaken the stand of Communist trjoops in the front lines. As far as close support Is concerned, It is Just i more effective artillery weapon. Increasing this effort considerably would not give commensurate gains either. ' There are still infrequent strategic targets discovered in North Korea, and promptly bombed. Bu this field of activity 'was mostl; exhausted to U. S. filers mon than a. year ago. Any increasi would be sheer waste of effort. Those are alternatives to Al Force commanders within presen policy limits. Altering that policy could permit the bombing of air force .bases- above the Yalu River Into Manchuria. Greater Danger To UN Pilots But what permanent good would he bombing of these fighter strips .0? The enemy would just keep nbvlng his improvised strips back nto Manchuria, sucking UN ighters deeper and deeper over enemy territory. It would not make a basic change in the present pattern of air-to-air combat. And It would greatly increase the odds against UN pilots being able return'to, their, fields.after an engagement. ^ Next alternatives are the chang- ,ng of policy to permit the bomb- ng of supply lines In China and Manchuria, and the strategic bombing of factories and cities in China. The answer to v bombing of supply lines is the fact that' it probably would not prove any more effective than interdiction has in Korea. 'A heckling action, yes. But not decisive. And very expensive, The answer to strategic bombing- of plants in China and Manchuria is the recognized fact that the main war effort which is supporting Communist Iroops in Ko rea is not found in China or Manchuria. It is in Russia, This action would be effective, but again not decisive. , And the propaganda value to the enemy of»this action might outweigh the strategic value to the U.S. Millions of Innocent civilians would be slaughtered in the process. That leaves the one area for effective strategic bombing as Russia, proper. That would mean World War III, ot course.

The best course lo follow Is usually to steer somewhere between the over-amhHion of most athcrs for the athletic prowess f their sons, and the sometimes nreasonable fears of the mothers. This question of taking part In ompetltlve alhlelics has not gone vholly unstudied. Suggestions aim- d at helping to make participation such sports safe and healthful were adopted by the National oint Committee on Standards for Boys' Alhlelics some time ago and endorsed by other prominent organizations. These points are so mportant that they are reproduced here: A health examination should >e required previous to parllclpa ion, preferably on a seasonal basis, with annual examination minimum requirement. 2. A physician should be present it ill contest* Involving activities where the injury hazard Is pronounced. 3. A contestant who has been IV r Injured should be readmitted to participation only on the written recommendation of a physician,. 4. A contestant upon returning to participation after Illness or Injury should be carefully observed, and if (here Is any doubt as to his con dlllon he should Immediately be referred to x physician. 5. The coach (faculty member In charge) should be competent I first aid and thoroughly versed In sport* conditioning and training. I Is also strongly recommended tha all players be given basic instruc lion in , first aid. «. In ct*« of be id, Mck or tplnc njury, or suspicion thereof, the layer should be removed from lay, placed at rest, and be given ie Immediate attention of a physt- ian. 7. Every school should have a vrilten policy regarding the rc- ponslbility for injury incurred In Ihletics. and this policy should be nown to all participants, (heir iarents, and other responsible dults. Arrangements should be nade for obtaining and paying for medical, and hospital care .of in ured participants, In accord with ocal policy. NEED PROTECTIVE GEAR —.
