I TOt Baity n#gta^Matl. Qalgto^ Friday, October .9, 1953 'ommentand Review MUTISM LABORITES CAUOMT IN MIDDLE ON SPAIN AND CHINA Thd day hardly passes Without some prominent Briton, . Usually a member, of the Labor Party, urging the early Admission of Red China to the United Nations. This is an old story now. The only reason for bringing it iip is that a situation has developed that puts the argument in a peculiar light. The principal contention of the British and some others is that Red China merits this recognition because the Communist regime is in fact the master of all mainland China. In Other words, the argument runs, it is simple realism to deal With the authority now in successful control of 450 million Chinese^ In theory, at least, this reasoning has force. But the American position is that we are not dealing with mere theoryy but actuality. And the actuality is that Red China for more than two years fought an aggressive war against the UN in Korea and is still giving major assistance to Red rebels in the Indo-China war. • We do not believe the Communist Chinese deserve consideration for UN membership so long as they are pursuing aggressive designs. Many in the pro-recognition group profess to see in our stand a perverse sort of stubbornness. They picture " their own position as the very essence of compelling logic. But now see what has happened. America has concluded an agreement with Spain for the use of air and naval bases. And the British Laborites, principally, deplore the arrangement on the ground that Spain's dictator, Generalissimo Franco, heads a distasteful Fascist regime that we should do nothing to encourage. The United States has no love for Franco, that is plain. But we realize that he, more perhaps than Mao in Red China, has control of his country. Realistically, by the very tests the Laborites would have us apply to Mao, we must accept the Franco government. Here it should be noted, however, that we are not inviting Spain into the UN or even into NATO. We are making a hard-headed deal for military bases we consider vital to our own and the west's security. Yet Attlee and Bevan and their echoes in Europe ignore the eminently practical aspects of the Spanish deal. They do Worse. They fly in the face of their own logic, arguing that rules which should apply to Mao ought not to apply to Franco. They seem to' be Saying, furthermore, that there are different kinds of totalitarians, some you should recognize and some you should not. Differences indeed exist, but it would be nice to hear the Laborite defense of the view that Franco is a greater menace than Mao. Most world observers who have had first-hand knowledge of both Franco and Communist regimes consider Franco a penny-ante operator alongside the Reds. Surely he is no military threat. The British Laborites thus are caught in a revealing contradiction. They have trumpeted against Franco so long in their domestic politics that they cannot reverse position. Logic therefore becomes for them a thing of mere convenient application. It happens to fit neatly with Britain's commercial hopes in the China area. DEATH IN A REFRIGERATOR The death of a child is an awful thing to contemplate. To a healthy, young lad of six or seven, death has no meaning. He is hardly aware that it exists. His mind is full of the joy of life. He plays hard, works hard, and grows hard. Now he is a space man, hurtling through space at the speed of light.

By GEORGE E. SOKOLSKY I was talking to a furrier about his union. It is a Communist-dominated union, but this particular furrier is a decent citizen, devout ly religious, living quietly with his family and minding his own business. So I asked hin why he and people like him tolerate the Red leadership in his union. "Read the papers and you will understand everything," he replied. "All right," I said, "so I'll read the papers and what do they show me? They show me that your union bosses are under indictment for conspiracy against our country, they are being deported. I, He interrupted: "That ain't what I'm talking about. I'm talking about Joe Fay and Joe,Ryan and labor leaders like that'who rob the worker, who take kickbacks, who are themselves capitalists, owning business es for which we have to work. They tie up with the politicians. And this I want to tell you, Joe Fay ain't no exception. There are plenty of Joe Fays and only he is in prison. "Maybe the Reds let us take home our pay-checks and don't steal from the welfare fund because they want us to keep our mouths shut when they pass resolutions denying that the Rosen bergs were spies. So I don't complain no matter what I think be cause these union bosses don't steal my wages." I thought a good deal about this conversation, which I assure you is authentic. The combination of labor racketeers and politicians has done the labor movement great harm and has helped the Commu nists. It took the American Fed eration of Labor two decades to get rid of Joe Ryan's longshoremen's union in New York, a union which has been wrecking this metropolis. It became a sanctuary for criminals and ex-jailbirds and the officers of (he American Federation of Labor knew it. Flaunted Corruption Openly There never was any secret about the combination that Ryan operated: It consisted of murderers, thieves, labor leaders, politicians and certain businessmen engaged in shipping who found it better business to pay off than to keep the port clean. Pilferage became a right, exercised by the union bosses. Investigations disclosed the facts; newspapermen won prizes disclosing the truth; but Ryan held his job and the American Federation of Labor avoided interfering in the internal affairs of a union. Now that Joe Ryan and his union have been expelled from the American Federation of Labor, a strike A Miracle Unfolds . • • By BOB CONSIDINE International News Service Came face to face with ft genuine miracle today. Opened the door of my house and there at my feet lay an object which, when unfolded, brought the whole world before my eyes. It was a world of war and peace, high resolve and despair, love and hate, tears and laughter—and it was all there before me. This miraculous object was easy to lift. Its leaves were easy to turn. Yet once it had been a massive part of a tree in Canada or Sweden, a tree that had needed years to grow. The tree was felled at the proper moment, stripped of its bark by intricate devices, pulled through forests, transported down rivers, fed into the maw of . a mill, mixed with strange chemicals and metamorphosed into paper and put at my door by ft lad I 've never seen. The world unfolded. From Moscow there was word that deeply affected me, an intra-mob fight in the Kremlin — where previous machinations had brought to mankind an incomparable scourge, and had caused us of the free world to teeter on the brink of bankruptcy. Puzzled by the significance of the strife, I turned to a story written by a man who had lived in Russia and who knew the purges and the purged. And from there to stories of what the great ones had said of all this, in London, Paris, V/ashington, Ottawa, Mexico City, Melbourne, Manila, Rio de Janeiro, Johannesburg. . . But there was so much more. There was word of the progress of the latest political revolution in our own country, of changes in the law of the land, the cost of TW„ ,'„«,.„ y„^A* „„ «w„ continuing to be a citizen, the cost fol T ded r< she:t e s re of Zlt iTourK^ a skyscrapCr and ° £ * Pat ° f my door. And pictures to explain the words. Here, to make these words and pictures visible and enduring, a substance named ink had been introduced—a substance made of a varnish prepared from linseed oil, rosin and soap, to which the proper pigment had been added and the lot ground to a great fineness in a levigating! mill. of a skyscraper butter. Some of my future was being shaped in Washington and some of it in Panmunjon, and yet I knew it almost instantly—its scope and meaning—and, being a person who employs these representatives by my vote, I could begin to decide then and there whether to dismiss them or retain them in office. There was news of the atom, our .smallest weapon, and of the pro The infinite tragedy of war in^ted carrier, our largest.

His story had been shouted into a crackling field phone, or tapped out in a battered press hostel, moved to a seething place named Pusan or a broken one named Seoul, flung across the sea of Japan by the confounding miracle of radio, revised in Tokyo, then hurled on. In San Francisco it had been further polished and placed on a printer," and fed electronically to hundreds of outlets at 60 words minute. Then it had been taken off the machine, edited, interpreted in headlines that contained the exact number of letters and spaces, reduced to metal, pressed against a yielding pulpy sheet named a matrix, which in turn gave birth to its image in metal, attached to a printing press that cost a million dollars, inked, and wedded to an endless sheet of surging paper. It bad been bound, transported in trucks, trains, planes, earmarked for me for a few pennies, in Berlin and showed me the wrath of risen slaves. It let me into the study of Marshall Tito. I was with Adlai Stevensonin Vienna and Dwight Eisenhower in drought-stricken Texas, and with Cambodian Premier Penn Nouth in Saigon. And Marilyn Monroe in Hollywood. I left London with the Queen of Tonga, was in the hospital with Senator Taft, and helped lasso a Hereford bull in the streets of Charlotte, N. C. I went to a stylish first night on Broadway, and to a couturier's opening in Paris. Mr. Truman told me why his side had lost last November. "People let demagoguery get the best of them," he snapped at me.

All through the miracle I held in my hand (and had come to accept as routine)—my newspaper. National Newspaper Week: Oct. 1 -8 junction; Governor . Dewey ap pealed to the shippers not to sign a new contract with Ryan; and the great fear is that if an election were held, he might win and his union would be certified by the National Labor Relations Board These crooked labor leaders always complain about the Taft; Hartley law and want Congress to abolish it because while the Taft- Hartley law has not driven them out of business, it has put limitations upon them which could be used by the government and in the case of the Ryan union have only been resorted to after scandals have been made public by the newspapers. The same goes for Joe Fay. Money is Their Power What gives these crooked men so much power? The answer is, money. They control enormous treasuries, running into the millions of dollars and while nowadays they do generally give some kind of financial report, they can cover their contributions to politicians as "educational expenses" or "contingency funds," which they can keep secret under existing laws. Their argument for secrecy is that were they to make such information public, the en emies of labor would have an advantage In these lean years of high in come taxes, politicians, needing campaign money, especially what is called "under-the-table" money, paid in cash and never reported no matter what the law requires have discovered in the unions a reservoir of cash which can be tapped for favors promised and performed After all, David Dubinsky, who is a good labor leader, owns a political party in New York City which his union supports out of its treasury. He is running his own candidate for Mayor of New York City and, according to his press agent, has given Harry Tru man a going-over because the ex President spoke favorably of another candidate Not every labor leader can own political party but he can own distinguished political leaders ventured into the circle of their jplay.

Curiosity is one of his strong points. He wants to investigate everything that is new to him. Mother has her hands full keeping him out of places he shouldn't be. Dad gets irritated when he asks over and over again questions that Dad can't answer. But all that is part of being a boy— unbounded curiosity and a vivid imagination. His mother thinks he is the handsomest lad on the street—a little angel that can do no wrong 1 , though he does need the seat of his pants warmed once in a while to keep him in line. Dad sees in him a coming partner in the firm, State's star halfback of 1968, or the Mickey Mantle of 1975. To both he is an object of love and adoration. But today, he is just a little boy, searching for something interesting to do. A big, white box off in a neglected corner of a back lot catches his eye. His curiosity tells him to open the heavy door and look inside. There is nothing inside. Just the loop where ice cube trays once fit. But our lad sees something more than the dank interior of an abandoned refrigerator. To his fertile imagination, it is a space ship ready to take off for Mars. It is a hide-out for cops and robbers. It is a safe for his collection of bottle caps. It is a haven from Mother when things go wrong. Why not get in and try it out? He gives the door an extra hard push backwards and clambers in. The door slowly swings back into place. Maybe he sees it. Maybe he doesn't. But the latch snaps with a loud click. It's awfully black in here. He can't even see his hand in front of his face. There is no room to turn around. This isn't as good as he thought it was going to be. He wants out. He batters the door with his fists. He cries out for help. No one has seen him get in. No one hears his wails. No one hears the muffled tattoo of his tiny hands. Soon he is sweating and panting hard. The air is stale and it is hard to breathe. He is a thoroughly frightened little boy now. He cries and pounds over and over, but nobody hears. He can cry and pound no longer. There is no air left to breathe. There is nothing but darkness. Our boy is gone. The dreams and hopes of his mother and father are none with him. Why, they will sob, why did it have to happen to him? Why? The problem is on our doorstep. What can we do about it?

About all the United Nations has produced to date, says Arch Nearbrite, is a new flock of foreign orators who are as tiresome as our congressmen and senators.we read about all the By PETER EDSON/ £ NEA Washington Correspondent" WASHINGTON (NEA) — Secretary Ezra Benson's hard-piessed Department of Agriculture may have squeezed itself out of one immediate crop surplus problem, only to bump square into a couple of others. There were great sighs of relief in Washington < when the nation's wheat framcrs voted for acreage allotments on next year's crop. If more than two thirds of the wheat farmers had voted "No" in this referendum, instead of 85 per cent voting "Yes," the Eisenhower administration would have been in a terrible fix. There arc three more of these farmer elections coming up on whether to impose quota limitations on next year's crops. The votes arc to cover cotton, peanuts, southern Maryland tobacco and some of the cigar types of tobaccos grown in Connecticut, Pennsylvania and other northern states. Quotas are already in effect on the main types of tobacco, under a three-year vote that cov ers the 1954 crop. Because of the world demand for rice, and no oversupply, there is no prospect that restrictions will be asked for on rice planting. Because corn can be consumed on the farm as livestock feed, the difficulty of putting rigid controls on this crop still stands. But voluntary acreage reductions on corn planting can be asked for. Controls on Four of Six Crops With the exception of rice and corn, what all this adds up to is that there are apt to be some controls on next year's production of four out of six of the basic U. S. crops. Add to this the new benumrnt among some livestock men for price supports on meat animals, and you see part of the new farm situation developing. The argument of the livestock men is that if feed grains are to remain under price supports, then meat animal prices should have the same protection. This trend towards a controlled •farm economy is the exact opposite of what the Republican administration set out to accomplish. Secretary Benson has had to give ground somewhat in trying to make the best of the situation. He has not changed his objective of establishing a freer farm economy. But he has recognized that existing controls authorized by present law must be used until a new farm plan can be worked out and approved by Congress. These existing controls, however, present some other new problems of their own. As a result of the vote authorizing wheat quotas for next year, the total U. S. wheat acreage may be reduced from 78 million acres this year to 62 million acres in 19E4. This is a 16-million-acre, or a 20-per-cent, cut. Similar cuts are possible for cotton and corn. Expect Cotton Acreage Limitations With a 14.5-million-bale cotton crop in sight and a 5.5-millioa-bale! carryover from last year, cotton farmers are fully expected to vote for acreage limitations next year, Nearly 25 million acres were planted in cotton this year. A cut of as much as eight million acres has been discussed.' With a record corn crop of over four billion bushels in sight for this year, there is a good prospect that farmers will be asked to reduce next year's planting. This year's corn acreage was over 80 million. A cut of six million acres or more might be urged. What all this adds up to is the prospect that over 30 million acres of U. S. farm land will be taken out of production on these three crops alone. The new big question in Washington arises out of what farmers will do with this acreage? If it is planted in cover crops for pasture or for soil conservation, everything may work out all right. But' if a large proportion of this acreage taken out of wheat, cotton and corn production is planted in rye, soybeans, flax or sorghums, all it may do is create new surpluses of these other crops. That would present the Department of Agriculture with just as big a new surplus problem as the one it now faces. The Doctor Answers GEOGRAPHIC AND BLACK TONGUE NOf HARMFUL, THOUGH THEY ARE AN N01TING CONDITIONS By EDWIN P. JORDAN, M.D. Written for NEA Service Two questions on the tongue start off today's column. Q—The first asks for a discussion of geographic tongue, and the second for the cause and treatment of furry, discolored tongue when one's state of health is otherwise good. A—Geographic tongue is a condition in which there are deep furrows in the tongue which give something of the appearance of a contour map. There Is nothing particular to be done for this, and it is harmless. Black tongue, or hairy tongue, is a condition of uncertain cause, and again is considered harmless. It arises occasionally during the use of penicillin locally and clears up when stopped. Under other circumstances treatment Is aimed at clearing away the offending growth by scraping or brushing, possibly with the use of chemicals, but it often comes back. * * * Q—I get a cramp in the back of my leg when I walk a few blocks, Is this*a sign of arteriosclerosis? Mrs. R. A—This sounds typical of a con tlitton called intermittent claudica­ tion, which is generally a sign of arteriosclerosis of the blood ves sels of the leg. * » * Q— A boy and girl are planning marriage. Her mother and his father are first cousins. Does that make them second or third cous ins? Is there a danger of not having normal children? I. L. A—They are second cousins. If the girl's mother and the boy's fa thcr and their families are free of hereditarily transmitted abnormalities or disease, the chances of having normal children are presumed to be as good as those of any other marriage. * * * Q—Two years ago my sister had her oviducts closed through an operation, but now she is pregnant. How can this be? Mrs. P. A—Evidently, the tubes or oviducts, became reopened so that the egg could pass down from the ovaries to the womb. This is not usual, but does happen occasionally. * * • Q—Some weeks ago I slipped on a wet kitchen floor, falling against the corner of a table and striking my breast. I received a large bruise over the side of the breast which has been painful since. I have been told that an injury of this sort can often cause cancer. Is this true? Mrs. D. A—It is unlikely that an injury of this sort, no matter how pain ful, could be the sole cause of the development of cancer in the breast. Nevertheless, the safest thing would be to have this check ed frequently by a physician. Fulton Lewis, Jr. WASHINGTON, Oct. 8— French Premier Joseph Laniel, on his forthcoming visit to Washington, will get a stiff dose of "cold tur key" talk from American officials. Whether it will do any good is highly problematical, to say the least. Actually, M. Laniel's major pur pose in proposing that he visit this capital was to see what he could acquire in the way of pres tige and American promises that would enhance his prospects of staying in office—prospects which at this point are rather dim. Politics and politicians being of the spineless, weak-kneed character that they are in France, it is an almost-foregone conclusion that he will not be able to make any firm commitments such as we would like to have; and that if he was so foolish as to try to make them, he probably could not carry them out. He knows that. So do we. There fore, his trip boils down to an effort on his part to bolster his own standing in his own country. Whatever benefits we might possibly derive would be of the purely coincidental variety. U. S. Holds to Two Hopes There are two major items the United States would like of France — first, ratification of the European Defense Community agreement; and second, a clean out of the Communist forces in Indochina. Plus, of course, a stable government in France, but this would seem even more wishful than the first two points. Ratification of the EDC agreement thus far has been held up by opposition based on the tradi tional French fear and hatred of neighboring Germany, and on the unwillingness of Communist, So cialist and other left-wing ele ments to commit any French forces to possible use against potential Russian aggression. Many persons have forgotten by now that it was France herself that originally proposed creation of the EDC. Her idea was that it would allow West Germany to rearm for the common defense against any Communist aggression, but that by blending the German forces into an international Barbs - On the total population of our land depends the number of people who wish they were somebody else.

European army, my militaristic ideas on the part of the reborn Germany would be kept down. Then after the pact finally was completed nlmost a year and a half ago, the French began backing away from it and ratification still is only an ambition. In fact, only one of the six European nations which originally agreed to the pact has thus far formally approved it —"Germany. Four other countries — Italy, Belgium, Luxembourg and The Netherlands — have been wailing for France to act. Thus, there can be no effeclive EDC until and unless France does act. U. S. officials presently arc inclined to the optimistic side and feel there is a fair chance that France may ratify the treaty in the relatively near future. They also feel that if they can help build up M. Laniel's prestige to the point where he can stay in power for a while, ho may really get behind EDC and put across its ratification. It may be more wishful thinking. Analysis of Indochina As for Indochina, M. Laniel's government is making the proper noises and, with the help of new American money, is sending additional seasoned forces to the beleaguered southeast Asia territory. Furthermore, it has announced plans to train substantial numbers of additional native troops, and has promised a greater degree of autonomy for the three countries involved. On the other hand, left-wing elements in France itself—again, Communists and Socialists — already are beginning to beat the drums for the government to negotiate an Indochinese peace with the Communist invaders. You can guess how any such negotiated peace would settle things; probably about like the peace we negotiated between Chiang Kai-Shek and the Chinese Communist invaders. Ho Chi-Minh, leader of the Communist forces invading Indochina, has not. yet even suggested any sort of peace negotiations or talks. But typical of the talk beginning to bo heard around Paris is the following line in a dispatch from the French capital in this week's issue of the left-wing "New Republic": ". . . It will be very difficult for the Laniel government, no matter what support it may get in GOP Washington, to survive refusal to consider any serious offer of negotiations that may be made by Ho Chi-Minh." Time will tell.

Bible Comment WHAT GOD INTENDS US TO BE By WILLIAM E. GILROY, D.D. What God intends us to be is undoubtedly something better than we are. Regardless of whatever we have attained, the law of the Christian life is to grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ (II Peter 3:18). There is no limit to that grace and knowledge. But if we could think of man as starting from scratch, or with an unformed life, what does God require? First of all, honesty and uprightness; righteousness is the very foundation of the godly life. If there be evil in act, thought or motive, the one essential is repentance, and the turning toward righteousness. "Cease to do evil: learn to do well" (Isaiah 1:16, 17). In Romans 12:9 Paul says virtually the same thing as Isaiah in slightly different words: "Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good." For Jew or for Christian; in fact for those of religion, in any time or place, the essential of the good life is the same. It is righteousness, man's will ingness to live according to what he knows to be best. But the Christian life, what God intends us to be, is not all found in personal goodness. The Christian life is a life of relationships. Man does not live alone. He has privileges and duties in relation to his fellowmen as well as to God, and the nature of his life toward God, in its reality and integrity, is, in fact, determined largely by what man is toward his fellowmen. "If a man say, I love God; and hateth his brother, he is a liar; for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God, whom he hath not seen?" (I John 4:20). This all becomes plain and very specific, and also very applicable to our present-day world of racial, religious, and sectional prejudices, jealousies and hatreds. Consider not only the words and example of Jesus, but Saint Paul's very vivid and practical definition of the meaning and effect of the new life in Christ. In many passages Paul describes the "new man," "renewed in knowledge after the image of Him that created him" (Colos- sians 3:10). "If any man be in Christ," he wrote (II Corinthians 5:17), "he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new." How really new all things should be to this "new man" became very evident when Paul put it all in very definite and practical attitudes and relationships, man with man. That ancient world was a world in which slavery was the common lot and condition of men. In addition there were all sorts of hatreds and prejudices, just as there are in the world today. It was not altogether a coincidence that the strongest word that Paul could have expressed concerning these things should have been expressed to the Christians in the church at Colossae. It was there in that church that Philemon, the master, was a leader to whom Paul sent back from Rome the converted runaway slave, Onesimus. But what Paul wrote^went far beyond the relationship of slave and master. Paul wrote about a life and a world, "where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond not free; but Christ is all and in all" (Colossians 3:11). That is Christian democracy. But how far human democracy lags behind, and what a long way we must go before we catch up with Paul, or attain to what God intends us to be! «™Itegister-Mail Office 154-158 East Simmon* Galesburg, Illinois Street Entered as Second Class Matter at the Post Office at Galesburg Illinois, under Act of Congress of March a. 1879.
