(^(-Excuse me if I don't dance In the ,tr«t« .very time there's news ; of a great event, A little mail who lives In th« back of my head always taps me on the skull and says: "Whoa, Jack, let's wait before you cheer." it was In San* — ~ New U. S. Atomic Proving Ground? I remember how Francisco In 1945: The flags flying and the diplomats smiling and shaking hands like brothers while they hammered verbs nntl nouns »nd commas together in the United Nations charter. It was spring, a wonderful lime, everybody happy, and nil the pro. phets saying the U.N. would keep ^Ami then I saw the b!g powers slip into the charter the little sign marked "exit"—except they it the veto. I went off in a corner and sat down, sick with fear, because the little man got busy willi his tap- Ding in my skull, telling me: "Any time one of the big ones wants to get ornery, he can chuck In the veto, and when Hint hnpper you can kiss the peace niul Ihe UN goodbye, my boy." And sure enough, he called lln shot The Russians dragged in th. veto, twisted its tail, and lieat th diplomats over the head till the U.N. looked like Ime I hear about something meat diplomats do, 1 listen for the little nan. and he always makes that apping sound and stvys: H may linn out wonderfully well, but take a cool look before •ou shoot off firecrackers." with It picnic Llll Hie v.i'. .-- - . ground at 5 p.m., on the fourth ol July, when the crowd is gone. Last week the Atlantic Pact was signed, greatest living testimonial to the failure of the U.N. Fanfare lights, movie cameras. television, speeches by the dlplo- • mats, tons of publicity, and plenly of talk of how this would slop Russia'. Sugnesls Holding filters And later more hurrahs when the State Department said we and Prance and Britain had finally agreed on how a new German republic should be set up in Western Germany, no matter what kind of government the Russians set up In Eastern Germany. And both limes, on the pact and the German business, the little man got out his hammer mid beat my brains and said: ••Now lake it easy before you throw your hat in the air bccniise . we'll have to wait and see whether it really turns out as tine as It's lupposed to do." The Atlantic pact may be a fine and wonderful thing, and It may throw a block on Russia and save the Western world, but first we have to see how it really-works and whether Congress votes enough money to help our allies get armed. Here's what I'm trying to sny: Just saying it's fine and wonderful Isn't enough; making it that way is the Important thing, because the world Is caught in a hurricane nnd the sea Is running high. And as far as Germany goes, Hier« may be plenty of trouble ahead, because we and Britain and France have slipped some vetoes into the agreement on Germany. Still Plagued by Vetoes And 1 sometime if Prance doesn't like something wham, in goes .the veto. And sometime if we don't like something, wham, in goes the veto. And now some of the Germans- German Socialists taking part In setting wp the new govcrmonk— • re sore as hens over some of the rules that we and Britain nnd France are laying down, the things we're telling the new German republic It can't do before it's even born. All three whipped Germany and have their troops there, and don't want Germany to get too muscular again. Telling the Germans what they can do is the right of the victor; but the Germans, or some of them, don't seem happy. So that may mean trouble hi the future. So all I'm saying Is that every Me Math Names Two Plant Board Members LITTLE ROCK, Aplil 13. f/Pl — Governor McMalh yesterday appointed two additional members of the Arkansas Plant Board.
