The Russian overtures for peace in Korea were one indication that ,Ioe waaa't quite as comfortable an everyone thought. After that, Marshal Tito, who disinherited himself from the Soviet family and hag had « Russitm gun at his back, more or less, ever since, spoke up to his erstwhile Uncle Joe in vigorous words about mass murder and genocide. Tito is still a Communist, but not a Stalin Communist, and lie appealed to the Poles to follow Yugoslavia's escape from the Soviet grip. At the same time, Stalin's Deputy Premier Molotov was in Poland, blasting Tito and trying to scare any Tito-minded Poles back into line by nabbing nine high-ranking Polish officers for treason. Then some little people got into the act. Some Polish navy sailors locked up their Red officers and sailed their mine sweeper into Sweden to get away from it all. And in [ran, where Soviet agents have been \ v h"?piT>o; things up for the oil crisis, an Iranian frontier post turned its guns on a Soviet naval vessel and chnsed it away. All these things may be ut) more than bothersome flies to Stalin. \Ve tan enpoy them, but we cannot relax while we do. We might even see what we can do about sending more of this breed of flics in Joe's direction, for even tile mighty ' Stalin can keep pretty busy brushing things like that out of his mustache. had b«eit a!iv». Onc« th« soldier's parents opened up the package and let the rug out of th« hag, to to upeak, the fur started to fly. Their son's letter said he'd paid $61 for the rug, which was worth $25,000 and was once in the castle of a princess. The parents wanted to sell it, and the government said careful, they'd have to pay customs duty. The Korean government said it was » $100,000 national treasure, and please give it back. Tht parents thought they ought to get something in return. Now the customs people have stepped in and impounded the rug as Korean government property. Now th« GI's parents will have to write him that souvenirs are fine, but not to send any more rugs that get pulled out from under their feet. Views of Others Don't Always Expect Page One Play for Your Cause Newspapermen unanimousty will understand and sympathize with Governor Byrne's decision to Issue no proclamation of observances oE special days and weeks, The governor jtays he Is besieged with request from org a nations, each of which "Is RiUsfied Its cause is the intxst important ot them, all." Most of the causes are important and worthwhile, the governor explains. But, If he should grant them all. every day would be named for some observance and "people would soon pay no attention to proclamations from the office of th» governor." A similar situation exlslts in newspaper offices. Every day, 10 or 15 organizations—many of them worthwhile—hav« a cause which they want the newspaper to support. They arc convinced that their cause U the most important of all causes, and they nometlmeB find It hard to understand why th« newspaper will not give it an eight-column headline, two column* of type antl a few displayed pictures, preferably on the front pane. The answer, ol course, Is much like the answer given by the governor. If all of the front page were devoted to causes, people would pny very little attention to the front page. And If all ot the newspapers were devoted to causes, people would pay very little attention to HIR newspaper. So, in the case of newspapers, there must be a middle ground. Every newspaper worth Its salt gives Its Lacking to worthwhile causes. It will run news stories about them, and often pictures. But the primary function of a newspaper Is to print the news. Tf a newspaper should become all causes and no news, no one would read It and it .would lose It* effectiveness to help any causes. So, speaking for The News and Courier, If you have a worthwhile cause we will b« pleased to cooperate, But don't expect an pight-rolumn headline on page one. "Hint's the kind of headline that everybody wants, and we like to it for a war declaration, it presidential election and other big news stories. .7-~~" —Charleston (S.C.r News and Courier HCD--The High Cos of Defense If anyone has any doubts about why America's defense budget is going to take such a lai'ge chunk of the national income now and in the immediate future, take, a look at this bill for an airplane: $21,000,000—each—for a new intercontinental bomber, a jet-age flying machine so complex that the bomb-sighting device alone will cost- §'250,000. The jel age, which is also the atomic age, has pushed the high cost of high flying into the stratosphere, right along with the planes. It's a whopping big bill, but we'd better make up our minds to pay it—and keep paying—until we've bought ourselves genuine security. SO THEY SAY "B-B-Bon Voyage . . . General Vaughn Adds To Medals Collection Ma}. Gen. Harry H. Vaughn, President Tru- nmn's Army aide, received a new medal recently. The Dominican Republic awarded him U,s highest honor, the Order of Juan Pablo Duaite in the degree o f grand officer. The citation hailed Vaughn for "serving your country with competence, loyalty and distinction." This honorary major general holds his present rank because of President Truman's personal friendship for him. In recalling his record of the past few years, we remember his love for glitter- Ing uniforms and bright medals, 12 of which he now has from foreign countries. In January of 1950 he was reprimanded sharply by a Senate committee which had conducted ihe spectacular five per center Inquiry. This committee. In a unanimous report, look Vaughn to task tor accepting .seven home freezers as gifts antf criticized him on other counts. Housing Exncditor Tighn Woods testified thM- Vaughn telephoned him on behalf of promoters who wanted permission to obtain scarce builrilne materials for the Anlovnn race track in California. Thr permits *vere grunted. It was inferred thai, had General Vaughn not taken a hand in the matter, the decision might have been otherwise. Generally speaking. Vaughn's awkwardness has caused the President embarrassment on several occasions. However, Mr Truman persists in stick- Ing by his old cronies even when there i& every reason tor doubting their usetulnes* to the nation. The Dominican Republic's citation, which refers to Vanshn's "competence and distinction" in serving his country, strikes us as being ridiculous.

Tafts Speech as Top GOP Will Make Yalta a '52 Issue WASHINGTON — (NEA) — Sen. Robert A. Tall of Ohio, tn a Maryland Republican political rally speech the other dny, again made ihe Yalta agreement ot 191ft a target- for attack. At Yalta, said Taft. Russia was given a position In Manchuria formerly occupied by -Japan. This line echoes a speech tnarie Peter Kflmn by Sen. Joe McCarthy at a Young Republican ral- y In Boston at the end of June. So. if what happened at Yalta n ICH.T is to be the pitch for nti mportant. Republican campaign is- up. in 1952. it behooves every .studious voter and political wiseacre o get out his history books and tart bonina up on the subject.. A goort occasion to do this may ihortly be provided by release of a tew report on Yalta, prepared by W. Averell Harriman. Mr. Karri- nan Is President Truman's foreign loltcy adviser and was President Roosevelt's atnba.ssador to Moscow. Ambassador Harriman had originally been scheduled to testify on Yftlta before the Senate Investigation Into the firing of General Mnc- Artlitir. To shorten the hearings, it was decided not to cnli him as a witness. Instead, It was arranged that Hen. Brie-n McMahon of Connecticut would ask Mr. Hnrriman for a statement, on Yalta. One of Few Valla Men Still , In Government The Harriman statement was mplete before he went to (ran as President Truman's mediator in the Anglo-Iranian oil dispute. Pol- lowing Senator McMahon's return from Europe, the Harrimau report \vili be released. But when it does come out, the six-year-old agreement may as;ain be dusted off as a fresh political Issue. Who were the o/hors at Yalta? Fleet Adm. William D. Leahy. President Roosevelt's chief .military adviser, eives the list of principals in his book, "I Was There." Where are (hey no-.v? President Roosevelt. Secretary of State E. R. stettinhiK, and -Harry Hopkins are dead. James F. Byrnes is no\v governor of South Carolina, lser Hiss Is in jail. Still in me State DepurUncnt are H. Fteeman Matthews, now deputy undersecretary in charge of political flfffiirs, and diaries H. Bohlen counselor, Roth are career foreign service officers and generally admitted to be among the best men in government. But their roles ai Yalta were minor, as was that ol Hiss. Bohlen wns- Ropsevelt's translator. Matthews and Hiss were secretary-advisers to SteUinius. Admiral Leahy is retired and so is Fleet Adm. Ernest J. Kinp, wartime rhiet of naval operations. Gen Georee C. Marshall is Secretary o Defense. Many Others Are Retired ten a book on the subject, Mast Relax." 'You dm. Emory S. Land. Vice Adm. C, I. Cooke. Jr., Maj.-Gen. J. R. Deane and Maj.-Gen P. L. Anderon are all retired. Lt.Gen. R. H. Bull is now head if the National War College. Adm jynrie D. McCormick is now acting hief of naval operations. Lt.-Gen. Fohn E, Hull is Army vice chief t>£ staff, \faj.-Gen. Lawrence S. fcuter is commander of Military Air Transport. So. of the fx>p 20 men at Yalta. ,he eight still in government are responsible and reliable men hold- ng positions of great trust. The only person who. has suggested that they all be fired because they were part of "the Yalta crowd" is Sen- | ator McCarthy. Against the seven retired Army, Navy and Air Force general and flag officers there has never- been thft slightest suspicion of disloyalty. In fact, the best military braiu.c that the United States posseisei then or now, seem to have been ai- sembled at Yalta. As the Joint Chiefs of Staff, they wanted Russia brought into the war a gainst J&pan, They believed that the only way Japan could be defeated was by invasion of the main islands. They thought this would be a bloody and costly operation and they wanted all the Russian help they could get Fleet Admiral Leahy alone, of all this group, is on record as having been opposed to bringing Russia into the Far East war. Ha was outvoted. And so Which would you say is more accurate, a fluoroscopic examination or an X-ray picture? J. M M. A—Both procedure* are useful and sometimes one will show something which the other will nol or which would pass unnoticed. One can observe such things as the healing or the heart and the motions of the intestines by flnoroscope. The details of a broken none or a stom- arh ulcer can often he studied more accurately and at leisure from a, permanent X-rajr film. Q—Please say something about cartilages In the knee which come out of place. Is an operation the only way to fix them? R. C. C.
