Jj It' perhaps' can'be said that the mine £ owners, and those whose duty it is to g take measure of the situation, have bcejii jstupidly slow to marshal their forces to meet the situation—ono that has been-developing over many months, yes, even -years. ; j.JJSftWj, irather Jast, week -when the j situation was about to be dealt with | angrily and perhaps hastily, the mag- isanintoiis'iMR.'

''"' —•••--•' Old Ideas, New Weapons It is bad enough to have the tnr- riblc but indefinite assurance that the next war, if and when, will be fought ''with rocket weapons traveling at unheard-of speed. But it is something else to learn that our Army today could build a giant rocket with an atomic warhead capable of being fired with reasonable accuracy at any target on the face of'the earth. Potentially, then, the age of the rocket warfare is here. And there is little reason to think that other major powers are far behind us in these tle- ' velopments. True, we have a temporary monopoly of atomic weapons, but the rocket is free game. Britain already is at work on a largo national center for aeronautical research. The last time Amer- icanse were permitted to see Russia's research installations, in 1938, planning was "on a much larger scalo" than ours. Thus the international armament race continues. The actuality and threatened imminence of this new type of war seems to have had little effect on the minds of men whose duly it is to prevent the occurrence of such a war. The Big Four foreign ministers still wrangle over bases, territories and trusteeships which, while not made meaningless by new weapons, are at least greatly reduced in importance. . • . , . Britain may feel that the British lives sacrificed to drive the enemy ovit of Africa give her a just claim to Italian territory theme. Russia may feel Uie same way about eastern Germany, and the United Stales may have the.same feeling about the former Jap- held islands in the Pacific. But do these territories now have enough military importance to justify , the tension which their disposition has created? Another war might well be fought from the heart of opposing homelands with projectiles that circle the globe at perhaps 10 times the speed of sound. Tliu soldiers who died to liberate these disputed lands would be. better honored by an agreement to turn them over to United Nations trusteeship. The United Stales has proposed this in the case of Italy's African colonies, but but old way's/of thinking have thus far prevailed. It might develop, of cours, that Britain and Russia want outlying bases primarily for political rather than military reasons. American efforts lo put the under UN authority might be rebuffed, just as Mr. Byrnes's proposal for a disarmed Germany has been rebuffed, and for the same apparent Test of Strength HOLLYWOOD .

(NEA) — Into Mint, it was a purely technical charge," Boris salii he didn't nilim playing In Intelligent horror pictures, the boogie mim,' In front of a movie I he looked just like f Boris Karloff. "Why, Boris," we said, "where are your two heads? where Is your fright wig? Where is the chocolate syrup that doubles for blood? Where Is the battery that makes your ears light up? Where Is the..." "Please," Boris said. "Today I am the new Boris Karloff. I left the old one under a wet rock In the Universal prop department." "Mr. Karloff, please," called an assistant director. "Pardon me," snld Boris, In his pleasant English accent. He joined Danny Knye for a scene in "The Secret Lift of Walter Mitly." STHJ, A FILM TERROR at Danny Kiuloff leered then pushed him out a seeing himself on the "I visually wait n and window. 'I'lils wasn't very nice, because the window was on the lllh floor of a New York .skyscraper. "See," .said Boris, returning, "I'm still a menace. But I don't scare people with neon lights sticking out of my skull, two hearts, or eye balls that pop out every lime the | heroine looks at me. I'm just Boris Karloff. Not Boris Knrloff, horror man." We were worried about Danny. "He's hanging by his fingernail; prop In the last act." He's still grateful, though, for t what the monster did for h)s career. CJVES HIMSELF NIGHTMARES We wondered If Karloff, the super horror man, ever had nightmares. "Only when I see my own pictures," he chuckled, "or just before the opening of a new play. My knees always sound like castanets." He had a pretty good angle about screen, too. year before seeing one of my pictures. It's the only way I can learn anything about my acting. It's like reading something you've written. The next day it sounds pretty good. But a 'year later it stinks." Karloff sai<i he enjoyed working in the New York stage show, "Arsenic and Old Lace," just for the chance to enjoy the humor of authors Howard Lindsay and Rus- sol Grouse. "We spent all of our spar e time exchanging insulting telegrams," he said. Lindsay and Crouse once humorously objected to Karloff's getting sun-tanned during the summer season. "We're not playim; on a window ledge. He'll be back." Rnvis was in such nu itminblc ood that we couldn't resist ask- g about his divorce. He told the urL that Mrs. Karloff was "cruel" him, which gave Hollywood quite chuckle. "Please," he said.

But he went on to explain that. "Those orders have been prepared so many times Hint we've got people around here who could write them in their sleep." McCORMACK WAS .UNPOPULAR' IN WASHINGTON The resignation of Col. Alfred McCormack as head of the State Department's new Intelligence branch was not entirely due to his difficulties with Congress on the employment of so-called Communists, nor to his argument within the State DPpartnicnt over whcthcr his intelligence agent would report to and be under tlic "gcogrnphicTl desks." which nre presided over by ^orclgn Service career men.
