Mr. Dunn «»s in * wore than usually dramatic position at the time the award was made at South- till Illinois University, Carbondale. He couldn't attend the ceremonies. He was a personal assault against him, and economic pres sure against his newspaper. In the process, Dunn won a $65,000 libel suit against the community's competing newspaper. All of which proves, .with an unusual switch, that it's possible for a newspaper to sue someone else for libel, and succeed.

There are questions and problems that arise in this situation, however. Most immediate is the problem of recognizing this new and continuing change without loss of face for the Vest. ' Britain and France have treaties with Iraq, 'with Jordan, and with other small Arab nations Jin die area—including Lebanon. : Iraq's defection to the United Arab Republic 'could be a slap at and maybe even a weakening •blow to the Baghdad Pact setup in the Middle East, established to oppose Communist forces. Will Britain and France, and possibly the Unit- fed State*, be forced to go to the aid of these small nations which, one after the other, are falling into Natter's pocket? Or will we have to recognize what has happened and work our way out the best ;we can? The United States is fortunate in one thing. Its more recent relationships with Egypt President Nasser have been comparatively cordial. We may be the nation which can lead the West back into some sort of operating relationship with the enlarging Arab Republic. • Lebanon doubtless will fall into the Nasser in- Churchill lamented afterward in fluence.

David Lawrence Soviets Made Bold Move In Iraq Revolt WASHINGTON.-The Soviet ! strategists have made / a bold move in the "cold war." They have instigated a revolution In Iraq. They have Increased Nasser's power. They have also intensified their threat to take over the whole Middle East through heir stooge, Nasser of Egypt. This means a crisis In Westem policy which resembles what happened in the 1930's when Hitler and his' stooge, Mussolini, used o take step after step In their campaign of gradual absorption of weaker states. As Winston candidate. mcnt. after many opportunities to check mate the enemy had already been massed by. Will history repeat Itself?

That would form a neat little ring of allies in the eastern Mediterranean, including Yugoslavia The question arising from this is: How closely allied with the Russian brand of Communism wil this bloc be? Is Nasser telling the truth when he infers dislike for Russia after his visit there? Or is it all part of the vast Moscow conspiracy?, Tfane Nearing to Unmask The Alton area has been through this before. But never with quite the sense of uncertainty. .^Effort* to round up 2,000 acres in the Edwardsville neighborhood remind^ of those several .years ago to locate the National Air Force Academy in the Elsah area. The element of uncertainty, however, lies in the fact that identity of the agency seeking the land has not been disclosed. And landowners in the area are a mite slow about welcoming real estate agents until they learn for sure just what purpose the property is to be . used for. ' , The property negotiations involve homes •—• some of long standing. iFolks don't just uproot themselvesovernight,:. at; the first offer to sell property. ' We' thintthe folks there who suggest the Fairmouht ?ubjltyisioiii at Alton as a site for the land-buying may be misunderstanding the situa- tioa from this side of the county. If Southern ifllihois' University's Madison-St. Clair Residence Center is the project for which the property is sought, we feel the Alton area in general would welcome it. In fact, presuming again that SIU is the land seeker, we feel that one reason for the sccretiveness is involved in the Alton community's desire for the whole institution. We know of some Altonians who already have expressed disappointment at realizing the main campus of the Center must be located outside Alton because of the needs for space. It's fairly obvious, however, that the property in this area, industrialized as it is, would be too high in value to make such a buy advisable for a state-financed educational institution. We've thought dozens of times of offering th university an acre off o«r ( pwn back lot:—locatec right close to the ShurtleK campus—free for the purpose. But one acre is a long way from 2,000. Furthermore, the site under discussion is one of the few centrally located within the area which the SIU center would be designed to serve, am close enough to a municipality to obtain needec public utility services. It appears more and more as if SIU, providec it is the institution with power of condemnation which is seeking the land, must soon identify itsell and take advantage of whatever increased public sympathy would come from the disclosure. Victor Riesel Says Anderson On Economic Affairs NOTE: Victor Rle situation.) ____^, By ROBERT B. ANDERSON Secretory of the Treasury WASHINGTON - These are some postulates which I hold are basic to thinking about economic affairs in this great country of ours. 1. There is every reason to believe in the economic future of the United States. ' 2. A dynamic economy should encourage competition, but •bouid seek to minimize fluctuations and dislocations. 3. During periods or adjustment, such at> the present one, we should remembei that no one has all the blame, but no one is blameless. 4. The continued operation of a free society presupposes a growing sense of responsibility on the part of all who participate commensurate with the growing complexity in our economic system. 5. The Employment Act of 194$ is a challenge and a demand for our best effort, but it cannot be regarded as a govern ment guarantee of no fluctuations or o| no unemployment in the absence of rigid controls. 6. Equally as important as jobs ii the continuity of the job and the dollars earned in terms jQT IMUU BOQuli if, There if no single doctrine or economic theory that is the Klne qua non of growth and development la this country. f.

We are not leaded for a prolonged recession, jut for new horizons of progress. In any period of economic adjustment, such as we have been experiencing this year, pressures are often great for broad programs of. intervention by the Government. While we are ail properly concerned with an early resumption of business growth, at the same time we must avoid :aking imprudent steps which might undermine our future growth and prosperity potentials Each time that we examine a proposal, let us ask ourselves: iVill a specific proposal increase business incentives? Will it add significantly to purchasing power? Will it foster the sort of confidence that encourages private expenditures? Will it do these hings without seriously weakening the fiscal position of the Government? Is it the sort of activity a prudent government would engage in? These are questions of the greatest national significance. We must take a hard look at the particular kind of economic mechanism we nave built in this country.

OJT application ' " !430 billion of gross national product. This accomplishment results primarily from the freedom o *>th producers and consumers to make their own decisions—deci sions on markets, decisions on new products, decisions on pur chases, decisions on spending versus saving, decisions on wha the course of the economy may be in the future. While the Government can be heipfuI in providing an economi climate encouraging to compet itive enterprise, we must never theless recognize that Govern ment action necessarily plays a secondary role in our kind o economic system. Our population has doubled in 50 years. It is expanding at a rate of three million persons a year. The number of America: workers is increasing at a rat of nearly one million per year Family income after taxes wa at an all-time high in 1957 an continues high. With out produc tion more than doubling ever. 20 years, millions of new work ers svill be needed to make, se and distribute our goods. There is around $300 billion savings held by individual alone.

The personal drives and basi forces which have made ou American economy the greates mechanism of production and dis tribution in the history of th world are still present—strong and vital as ever. Keeping pac with them are the incalculabl new opportunities for creative In genulty which are being opene up constantly by modern science Under these conditions it would be unrealistic indeed to sell our American economy short for any protracted period. (Distributed 1888 by The Hall Syndicate, Inc.) Western governments vacillated war? The main question here now is What can the Western powers do'? The Eisenhower Doctrine could of course, be interpreted a; meaning that the circumstances justify a military intervention The new government in Iraq itself naturally will not reques' Intervention. Some other govern ment in the Middle East, like Jordan, could invite the Western Allies to send in troops to take protective steps to repel the aggression that is threatened. But it is doubtful whether public opinion either in Britain or America is as yet ready for a war that might ensue. It wasn't ready In the 1930's, either. So the only ogical policy at the moment is to begin to within the build a Middle resistance East by strengthening Turkey, Iran, Jordan and Pakistan in a military way and by supplying the sinews of defense to the members of the Baghdad Alliance. Significantly, the revolution in Iraq was timed to coincide with a meeting of the representatives of the Baghdad Pact to be held this week in Turkey. Another move might be the cut ting off by the Western powers of diplomatic relations with the Communist government In Mos cow. This would serve notice on the Kremlin that the West is well aware of the subversive tactics of the Communists and is ready to apply an internation al "quarantine." This was the proposal for dealing with "world awlessness" made by the late President Franklin D. Roosevelt, who suggested it in a public speech in Chicago in 1937 It was recognized then as i means of applying the mnra force of the world. To heed the advice about a "quarantine* meant a trade embargo as a se quel. This would have prevented Hitler's building up his war ma chine. But, unhappily, material ism then blocked the way, and less than two years later a globu! war began that post millions of casualties. Today the threat of a world wide embargo against the Com munists and against Nasser would be one means of bringing the men in the Kremlin to their senses. For they are playing with fire today. They are bank ing on the lack of resoluteness of the West. The Communists have deliberately weakened Ih Lebanon government by stirring up a rebellion, and now they have managed to overthrow government in Iraq which wa friendly to the West. It will not be of any avail ti be legalistic and assume that th> whole situation in Iraq is inter nal and that the uprising Is mere ly a clash between local factions The pronouncements of the rebe leaders are plainly written in the phrases of Soviet propagan da. The immediate proclamation of adherence to Nasser's so-callec "Republic," for Instance, give the game away. The Western powers will hav to make up their minds that they are not dealing with the ctisto mary form of rebellion withlr a country but are facing th consequences of an Internationa revolutionary movement whlc has for UK principal object th capture of whole countries «nc making them part of the Sovie apparatus. Unless firm action is take now, there is certain to aris a bigger and more dangerou, crivis In the not-far-distant fu ture that could involve larg defense outlays and grave risk It is a time when firmness i essential, when the Unite* 1 Stale and Britain must promptly suit with Twkey, Pakistan, .Tor dan and Iran to establish 9 mill tary program that will reall protect the Middle East again* further invasion by the Communists. 0 m N.

It is quite obvious that some of the readers are a bit perturbed over their taxes and advocate shifting the burden from their own shoulders to those of the parents, who have caused their troubles. The same parents, I might add, who have provided our na;ion with military manpower. What a shock this feeling must provide for some of the SIU students who are denying their own amllies to prepare for the teaching profession. Why do they do his? They know that the financial rewards will be only average. But they also know they can provide society with the mosl valuable and necessary things it can buy for "money." EDUCATION. They still believe that the youth of our nation will some day be saddled with all of the difficult problems our own generation has failed to solve. Even the students who do not have families believe in this idea. At a time when our democracy is being challenged from many directions, it might be advisable for all of us to stop our quibbling over money matters and apply our efforts to solve our problems We should be thankful that the parents of this country are willing to allow us to educate their children.

Many childless couples are not childless of their own volition, but these same people could add more meaning to their lives by aiding in the rearing of children from broken homes. Many boys and girls who serve in. the armed forces and the specialists in all fields in this highly complicated world of today come from large families. We would soon be a degenerate nation if all people felt that a large family is a disgrace.
