Expansion of Air Force Is Most Critical Problem relation* Among th« tcrvicw, tt« effect on ,th« peacetime economy ar« all rea- soni why the plan should b« thoroughly aired and wisely appraised. Few decisions made by American lawmakers these Hays are not weighted either with danger or j?reat promise for the future. The decision on how big to make the Air Force fits more than any other into the critical category. Views of Others What McCarthyism Has Come to Mean th« first shouts went up for • 150-srroiip Air Force, the Idea gotind- •d pretty fanciful to many sober analyst! of military power. • But the proposal has been hotly debated within th« Pentagon walls, and h»i steadily gained strength in Congresi. Now [t han been given its biggest boost t« data — Rep. Carl Vinson of Georgia, th« powerful chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, has endorsed H. Vinson doe* not urge 160 combat groups, but 138. H« auggeat*, however, that another 2* troop carrier wings be ereated, for a total Air Force of 163 wing*. At ths outset we have to remember that neither Vinson nor anybody else in talking about the current military budget. The present program, now under congressional consideration, calls for 95 groups. They would coat $19,850,000,000 out of a total $56 billion defense appropriation. How much would th* bigger program cost? If started within the current fiscal year, one estimate is that another $10 billion to ?12 billion would be needed before next June 30. In fiscal 1953 and 1054, sums of ?30 billion and $40 billion, respectively, are anticipated for all Air Force requirements under the expanded plan. When (lie latter figure is set beside the projected ?5S billion for all military needs this year some notion of the program's scope can be gained. Every citizen can appreciate that if this plan should be adopted, many new factors will be introduced into the American military picture. For one thing, it is unlikely that an effort would be made to raise comparably the outlays for the Army and Navy. The old principle of balanced appropriations for. all three arms ot the service would be out the window. It is in fact on the way out in the current budget. But while this would obviously signal our intent to rely heavily on superior air power, the idea of balanced air, sea and ground strength would not really be abandoned. Perhaps the key argument made by advocates of enlarged air power is that it is necessary for the sound support of the land forces deemed essential for effective defense against major Soviet aggression. In other words, they are saying that mere equality in dollars will not produce the basic balance of strength which we seek. To get that, it is argued, we must spend considerably more on air than on the other branches. The American people and their Congress must make up their minds about this proposed vast Air Force increase within the coming months. Its great cost, its revolutionary- impact on the A new word has found ILs way Into the American language. It reflects no credit upon the man responsible for UA adoption. The word Is McCarthyism, McCarlhyisrn Is used to describe the tactics of those who apparently do not adhere to the promise fundamental in American Justice that R person must he regarded nf> innocent until he Is proved guilty. Those who Indulge In McCarthyism hold that men are guilty until they are proved Innocent. They are willing to jeopardize the reputations of others if by so doing they can (octis the spotlight upon themselves Perhaps It, might be more succinctly said that McCarthyism la synonymous with Irresponsibility, Th* man responsible for the incorporation of the cloak of senatorial Immunity from llnel suits the cloa kof senatorial Immunity from libel suits —Just submitted to the Senate the names of 26 more persons whose loyally, he says, has been questioned. Last month this same Senator McCarthy submitted to the State Department a Hat of 29 person* with the demand for assurances that they not be given accew to secret documents. A 8tnt« Department spokesman now replies that two of the persons Included on that list are not employed by his department and that 14 of them have been cleared by the department's loyalty security board. The Wisconsin senator hiw carried on a Jong feud with the State Department and haa resorted constantly to McCarthyism in an effort to prove that the department is abounding In employes disloyal to the United States. It would be difficult to determine how many reputations he already has damaged gravely and how many careers he has disrupted or ruined. It. would be difficult also to determine to how ireat an extent he is serving the Communist desire to bring about a distrust of those In authority and to create dissension In government at a time when unity Is Imperative. —ATLANTA JOURNAL Representatives FYom A day's deliberations in Congress: R«p.

I/P) — The 1952 Presidential election still mere than a year away. But the political experts already are beat- inj their gums about evenU ahead. But they're being pretty cagey The DOCTOR SAYS By KDWIN P. JORDAN. M.D. Written for NEA Service Way back in ancient times, the kings, nobles and rich men of the clay often had themselves treated with hot baths, mud packs, or mas- ;eurs when they were ill. They must frequently have felt better from such treatments or they wouldn't have done it. Today's treatment by such physical methods (as differentiated from treatment by drugs or surgery) has become more scientific and a whole field of specialists devote their efforts to Physical Medicine. There are many new kinds of physical treatment which are available now, and they are not the special privilege of the rich either. Various forms of electricity can be used, of which the most valuable appears to be diathermy. This is a method of carrying heat deep into the tissues and Is Senator about it—they have to—because the future Is uncertain. As it stands now. the picture can be summed up briefly: Republicans — General. Eisenhower and Senator Taft of Ohio, are the two most prominently rn^- tioned for the Republican ncmj|l|) tion. Taft is running "for it as hard as he can. No one can predict ai the moment what Eisenhower will do; he may want no part of it; or he may think he's more needed in uniform because of a war or because he thinks his Jeb of rebuilding Europe's defenses Isn't, finished. Democrats — President Truman has given no hint of whether he'll seek re-election. Apparently awaiting his decision, most of his fellow Democrats have remained pretty mum on any other choice of their own, if any. Choice Isn't Wide They don't seem to have a widt choice. Given most mention as possible Democratic candidates if Mr, Truman doesn't run are these three: Senator Douglas of Illinois; and the Supreme Court's Chief Justice Vinson and Associate Justice Douglas. . The Supreme Court is not a pjaca for developing political attractiveness and the two justices don't hav« much popular backing; and as for Peter Cdton's Washington Column — \Vhich Economic Program Is The Best? Wait and Find Out WASHINGTON — (NEA)— This' is a piece to paste in the book and forget about for six months or a year. After that taps* of time, get it out and let the course of events decide which of the two exactly opposite economic programs now being urged on Congress was the right one fco follow. The first of the« programs is that of President, supported by Defense Mobilization Director Charl&s E, Wilson and Economic Stabilization Director Eric Johnston, The President Is of . coins* a Democrat and Messrs. Johnston and Wilson are long-time Republicans. 5everthele,«, this Is the Tni- man administration program. It supported by the Cabinet, and by what should be the majority but is really the minority of Congress the Democrat* who back the Truman program. The second of programs may be called the program of the National Association ol Manufacturers, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and the American Farm Pttcr Edson Truman. It is Bureau Federation, for lacX of a better designation. Anyway, leader* of these three organizations and their Washington spokesmen lave been the meet vocal In presenting the main idea*. This program has the support of majorities in both House* of Conss- These majorities art made up of most of the Republicans and enough Democrats who do not support the President's program to provide voting control in Congress. Now take a look at the two programs themselves. The President's program has been most recently re-stated in his rnid-year economic report to Congress. Raise DefenM Expenditure* The present world situation demands that tha United state* strengthen 1U own def eases home and the defenses of Us'allies abroad. Defense expenditures which were $18 billion a year before the Korean Invasion, have been raised to $48 billion in the past year. Next year they will go to $65 billion and the year after that, perhaps more. This increased defense spending will raise personal incomes by from S15 billion to $20 billlrm a year above the current rate. Channeling steel, aluminum and other mate- | rials into defense prodvictlon will create shortages of consum«r goods. The combination of these two factors—more money to spend and fewer things to buy—is bound to lead to disastrous inflation unless certain preventive measures are taken. Among the more important are increasing U.S. taxes by some S10 billion a year to soak up some of the increased personal income and to finance the defense production on a pay-as-we-go basis, balancing the budget, preventing deficit financing. Also, authority is asked to control prices, wages and rents to keep down the cost of the defense effort and to keep inflation from getting out of hand. opposition to this program, are the highlights of the often of great value in aiding the muscles and deeper tissues to heal. Certain forms of light have also been found heJpfiil. It has bfen reported that ultraviolet light aids recovery from a form of tuberculosis in vol ving the peritoneum (lining of the abdomen) or the intestines. The use of physical methods In treatment covers a wide rang*. There are paraffin baths, whirlpool baths, specially equipped gymnasiums for stretching muscles and getting Joints back Into shape, All these are used In many disease and after many kinds of injuries Older Method Not to be forgotten »r« th« older methods. Heat and cold, whether applied by water, mud, or other method, act on the circulation by expanding or contracting the flow of blood through th* arteries and veins. Obviously the proper application of these methods can affect the body physiology in many way». Just for example, hot packs are usually used early in paralytic polio; swimming or underwater exercises, both falling in the field of ph ysi c al tre at m ent, are fre qnently used later. Massage also has its place In physical treatment. When it U Indicated, and skillfully done, Jt frequently results not only in a great sense of comfort, but also in real improvement In the condition.

T5 Years Ago In BlythtYille — John McDowell and Hal Moore who have been employed at Myrtle Beach, S.C., this summer, will leave there Monday for a vacation trip through points of Florida before President reported to dislike him intensely. The experts ridicule any suggestion that if Mr. Truman doesnt run he might, If he wanted to, be ab! e to persu ad e Eisenhowe^feo take the Democratic nomination. Republican backers of the general claim to know he is a Republican and would run only on the Republican ticket, only last week th« President *aid he doesn't think thn general is a candidate for the Democratic nomination although that doesn't rule out the chance he might try to persuade the general to be ths candidate. Some Could B« Embarrassed If Eisenhower ran u a Democrat lot of Republicans backing him now u their candid a te woul d b« badly embarrassed. They couldnt very well campaign against him later. From what he'i said in the past, Eisenhower doesn't seem very closa to Mr. Truman's thinking on domestic affairs. The President has urged much wider economic .security for everyone,, for Instance, through a national medical health program. Whils he was still active as president of Columbia University Eisenhower once said people looking for security could find it In Jail, a remark which brought him criticism, even from his own students at Columbia.
