Miracle of industry Builds iron Muscles Along n bend of the Delaware River less than two years ngo, rich farmland stretched away lo Hie west in the vicinity of the town of Alorrisville, Pa. On Mint spot today Is a giant §450 million steel mill, the biggest single steel the postwar development program of the industry, Despite some reports, ibis is not . thb largest integrated mill in the land. ,ln basic- steel capacity, it ranks about 14th in the country. U. S. Steel, which owns the new Fairless works, itself has . six plants with greater capacity, including the mammoth Gary, Inci., works with output mqre than three times ns big. Yet no complete mill evtr was built in so short, n time (22) months), and none effected so vast ft transformation of the surrounding territory. The Fairless plant 1ms spurred a $'1 billion industrial contruction boom in the lower Delaware valley. Many companies eagci'Vor steel are clustering about the new giant. The plant reflects something else — n shift in emphasis away from the Pittsburgh and Chicago producing areas toward the seaboard. Tlifc explanation is the increasing dependence of U. S. mills on foreign ores to supplement declining domestic sources of iron. The Fairless work ultimately will be fed chiefly by ores .shipped in, by water from its developing mines in freshly charted Venezuelan territory. This new mill is a miracle of industrial accomplishment. The industry, and U. S. Stci-1, merit the nation's congratulations. Through imaginative, venturesome effort such as this, America grows in strength and security. Since the days when nation* were first formed, the notion of sovereignly — Uic right of a country to decide for itself nil (|iiestions pertaining to it — lias been one of the most jealously• guarded national prerogatives. Time after time efforts to weld intu-nnlioiml cooperative effort have foundered on that rock. In the offing are plans for a Kuro- pemi defense community, and a Euro-' pciin conl-xlecl integration nlroady ia taking shape, Holli these developments call for international decision by agencies equipped with legislative nnd R<|- mlnistrative and evon judicial authority. They \vill not work if trie •participating countries are unwilling to delegate power to the managing organizations. The European nations, like most in the world, have heen reluctant to yield tlioir individual authorities, At the same time they have understood increasingly that the moment had to come, it was a question of wiio would break the ice. This ifie ^Diitcti have now boldly (lone. They have recognized that some problems, including those most critical for the •security and well-being of nations, cannot be solvP'l at the national level. And they have realized that if international groups are to grapple with lliese difficulties they nuiat have more than the privilege of giving advice. They must have power and authority. The Dutch have opened the door. It remains to be seen whether thfe great powers, on whom the drive for unity really depends, will he able to follow this lead with any degree of success.

But it deserves to be memorialized as a significant milestone in European, and perhaps world, history.

Peter fdson's Washington Column — Knotty Issue for Ike to Judge Is Use of A-Wehpons in Korea Ry DOUai'A T/AUSKX NJv,\ Staff Correspondent , (r[ir>KTKH i;ilSO\) WASHINGTON — <NEA)— Presl- cloiU-clcct Elsenhower's visit, to Korea has reopened the subject ol the possible use of atomic weapons there. For more than year the Joint .Chiefs of SUH Imve had the subject shelved tis far as a full-dress. jap-level study ol the , qticfltion* Is .concerned. Now, however, Douglas I.nrsen there nre several reasons why previous decisions not :o use: the bomb in Korea »re &o- g lo luwe to be reconsidered. in the first pluce, in Eisenhower's talks with commanders in (he vnnjor alternative for There were numerous and Irrespon- enemy lines, Recording to one con- sible suggestions and demands to 'drop the big bomb on the bums and end it In a Uurvy." Strategic,Use for Atomic Bomb But it WHS ovious to commanders thai one A-bomb, or &veii R halt- dozen, would probably not be a deciavle stroke. The mountains would reduce the bomb's effectlvn- troops. And there were no strategic targets such as big factories or lnree industrial cities worthy of Its devastating force. There is still no strategic use to? the A-bomb in Korea, nor in Manchuria or China, according to Air Force thinking. But the extensive development of tactical rttom- ic weapons in the past two years is the big fnctor forcing n change in previous concepts of atomic warfare.

At ( (ho start of the war In Korea the best nnd probably the only usable atomic weapon In the U. S. arsenal was the strategic bomb. be fired from the Dig guns ol cruisers mid battleships. And atomic bombs linve been put in small enougl packages ao that they can be carried by fighter aircraft. These bombs are the most rcvo lutiomuy tactical weapons eve developed by the U. S. Ami with American forces caught in thi worst tactical trap in their history it would seem imperative to use them. Atomic artillery could be usci lie of tactical a to in I icutralize a beach-hi cpt.

Suffer Another theory holds that a cou- le of taptical atomic bombs could iead for an aui- Jhibious landing anywhere In North Korea, followed by an end-around offensive. There are other Ideas for the use of tactical nuclear weapons which will probably be attractive to Ike f he decides to try to end the war with a major military offensive. Of course there are also plenty of objections to using tactical atomic bombs in Korea, the most pressing of which is the claim that it would force a baste change in America's No. 1 weapon priority. That priority set-s as the primary goal of all nuclear weapon production a big enough stockpile of atomic bombs to Knock out Russia in After three months of weekly tel- efilm production, Joan Davis is wailing, "A Star Is Worn. . . .
