Honorable men today attribute no color of truth to any Soviet statement not issued under the pressure of opposition strength. They generally ignore Russian words and watch Russian deeds. Perhaps this fact will now begin to sink into the Kremlin's consciousness. If it doRs, we might hope to he spared henceforth the wearying Ijuredom of meaningless peace offensives.

Give Martin 'A' for Effort The Internal Revenue Code allows tax deductions for property losses not covered by insurance, if caused by "fires, storms, shipwreck or other casualty." When Mailin Rosenberg's house suffered $1800 worth of termite damage in 1947, he decided the law covered his loss and so deducted the item from his income tax. The U. S. Tax Court disallowed the claim. It said several cases established that "other casualty" had to be a "sudden casualty." It added: "\Ve cannot find under the evidence here that the damage wns done suddenly or even recently." We are left with • the tantalizing thought that if the termites were just a little speedier at their work. Mr. Rosenberg might have made the grade. Anyway, it was a nice try. Views of Others Mr. Truman Takes A Hand in Dispersal Propaganda Expected From Reds at Meeting Th« DOCTOR SAYS By EDWIN P. JORDAN, M. D. Written for NEA Service Several people have written to inquire about phlebitis, milk leg or related conditions and what can be done for them. Several have had most distressing experiences and ai-e desperately anxious for relief. Before discussing these disorders t is necessary to know what they arc. Phlebitis is an Inflammation of the inside lining of the veins— almost always those of trie legs. This nay be associated with blood clots nside these vessels in which case the condition is called thrombophle- bitis. Milk leg (called also phleg- masia alba dolcns) is a phlebitis of a particular vein of the leg which By JAMES MARLOW WASHINGTON. Aug. 15. <AP>— The. Russians are coming to San Francisco Sept. 4 to fire some more anti - American propaganda, thli time over the Japanese Peace Trea. ty which this country has taken the lead in working out. On that date this country invited SO of its wartime partners to the coast city to discuss, agree on, and sign the treaty whicb Is mainly the work of John Foster Dulles. Republican lawyer working for the State Department. Not every country is satisfied with all parts of the treaty which already has been distributed for examination and criticism in draft form. But the most strenuous objection has come from Russia. Although the treaty has been In (he works for a couple of years, it Peter fdson's Washington Column — ReoV'Big Lie' Peace Talk Becomes a Boring Chestnut Two or three years ago, any kind of pf*c« proposal from the Soviet Union •ent the free world into * breathless frenzy. Hope; ofter ran high that the Cold W«r,'wa\ shout to end. , . Slowly, 'the world's men of good will learned the bitter trulh about the Ru»- •ians. They learned that Russian pence offer* were simply moves on a chessboard, tactical steps that often were of f- *et by warlike gestures elsewhere at the very game moment. They discovered, too, that when talk of peace no longer suited tin Kremlin's strategy, it was dropped —to b« revived on another convenient o WAS ion. The free people digested this lesson painfully and grudgingly. Their wish for peac« is so strong that they found themselves tantalized again and again by the thought that "this time maybe the Russian* mean it." Of course they never have meant it, and so at length the illusions of the hopeful have been shattered. Once aroused, the scorn of the trustful is a powerful emotion. It is that feeling which the Russians now encounter when they propose anew that tha world'sit down and talk peace. Nikolai Shvernik, Russia's figurehead president, wrote a letter to President Truman the other day suggesting a five-power peace parley with the U. S., Russia, Britain, France and Red China taking part. He talked of limiting armaments and outlawing the A-bomb. Our government promptly responded by labeling the offer a "propaganda trap" designed to lull the free peoples to sleep. The State Department challenged Russia to honor cxi-sting obligations before taking on new treaty responsibilities. ' The French and the British joined us in deriding the Soviet maneuver as mere propaganda. N'o one anywhere in the non-Communist world saw in it even a faint glimmer of hope. Thus, without perhaps realizing it, the. Russians may have come to the end of a road. They may have reached the point where repeating the same old tired lies generates not only disbelief but damaging reaction among sincere peace-loving peoples. H is an axiom of totalitarian propaganda that if you tell a big lie often enough it will be widely believed. But it is (|tiite conceivable that the Russians have squeezed the last possible nunce of advantage from this technique, and now find themselves relying on a formula • wWch is sterile and empty. Is there anyone, left in the free world who really believes thai Russian mention of the word "peace 1 ' has any meaning? \Vtien a group of Southern and Southwestern Congressmen—Including those from Arkansas- tried to get » Joint resolution through Oongres» requiring Ihs dispersal of defense plant* they ran into head-on opposition from representatives of the older industrial areas of the country.

As i practical matter, lhat means the South and the. Southwest. There was nothing In that rcrcimmcudalmn —nor is there anything In the president's order —to threaten any existing concentration of industrial plants. All It does IB require that wherever practical new plants, In which Ihe government has » direct financial interest In most cnsrs, must be loontcd with proper rcgnrcl to military sraiTity.
