W« did not gain th« whole victory. Berlin today is the con- itant victim of small sieges. The city's predicament is » cue to our persistent failure to understand the Soviet Communist mind. Probably it's too late to repair the damage in Berlin. But what has happened there, since 1949 should be a sharp lesson to the Americans sitting across from the Communists at Kaesong. Once again, oui's is the basic advantage. We have won whatever victory can be claimed. That the Reds are negotiating at all is proof of that. But they will salvage from their defeat everything they can squeeze out of us. We simply must not allow ourselves to be squeezed. "Situations of strength" will avail us little if we do not exert the strength when we have it.

A reporter just back from Haiti said the Haitians were disturbed because the post of U. S. ambassador has been viiwuit for eight months. He asked President Truman if he planned an appointment soon. Cheerily ,the President responded that he'd named an ambassador the day before. But when he was asked for the man's name, Mr. Truman said he couldn't remember. Haitian papers, please forgive and forget. After all, this fellow is awfully busy. So many names, so many faces, , , Views of Others Higher Standards For Our Teachers L Our Fading Berlin 'Victory' Holds Lessons for Kaesong A little more than two years ago the West was flush with its air-lift triumph over the Berlin blockade imposed by the Russians. The Kremlin had hacked down and called off its effort to stifle freedom in the city. Western statesmen were understandably pleased that trie air-lift plus the economic boycott of Soviet Germany had produced a "situation of strength" which the Russians felt compelled to accept, tt wag the first spectacular victory nf free men over communism in the Cold War. But a Jook at Berlin today suggests that the triumph was something less than complete. Marguerite HigginR, competent correspondent of the New York Herald Tribune, revisited the. city recently and observed many disquieting signs. A "baby blockade" against the export of West Berlin's goods has been in progress for some time. We are meeting it with a "little air-lift" of more than » dozen flights a day. Miss Higgins found the Berlin press crowded with stories of Soviet attempts to cripple the city's business. Kidnapings of West Berlin's officials and citizens by East zone police go on as before. It is easy to recall, too, that many interruptions of the city's economic life have occurred in the months since I be big blockade was lifted. What Miss Higgins saw were merely the August, 1051 variations on a constant Soviet theme. And as she pointed out. Berlin faces continual harassmenls of this sort in the future. She added: "The West cannot yet claim victory in Berlin. It is clear thai, the Soviet Union seeks now lo do by degrees what it was unable to do by one dramatic blow." Testimony is general that the 1948-49 Allied boycott of Russian Germany really was damaging. And the air-lift's success was seriously embarrassing to Moscow's prestige. Vet it seems clear now that we did not wisely press our advantage. We were so overjoyed at the fact the Russians were willing to back down at all. thai we failed to make them backtrack enough. Perhaps we were loo busy congratulating ourselves at the success of our tactics. We forgot that the Russians are tireless bargainers, who try to snatch partial victory even from acknowledged defeat. Mayor Ernst Renter of Berlin believes we should have maintained the air-lift and boycott a few months longer lo heighten our bargaining power with the Kremlin. Others fee] that our great error was in not getting advance guarantees of free road and rail access to Berlin before lifting our counter-blockade measures. At any rate, the results are clear The Teachers Education and Professional Sten- darrts Committee ol the Arkansas Education Association mny .seem to b« flying In the lace of the fiscal farts when. It proposes that all new teachers be lectured to hold four-year college degrees. The present low, passed In 1947, requires only a minimum of 30 hours of college work for » three-year certificate. In addition, other provisions of the statute permit -the temporary licensing of teachers with even less college training. Wolh a heavy los.s nf experienced teacher* now under way in many districts t and curtailed budget* In prospect' tn most. It U * virtual certainty that the number of teachers without college degrees will be Increased. Some of these, of course, may turn out lo be quite satisfactory but the odds are against them. Education, after all, IB • basic to the business ot educating others. A rejtd requirement thai all teachers must possess college degrees, will, of course. Increase th« cost of"pilbllc education since salaries are fixed, in part, In accordance with professional training. The Arkansas Education Association, which i» something of n burned child after its recent unhappy experiences with attempting to Increase state school appropriations, may very well take (he position that this is not. lUs proper concern. Rut nobody could argue that the maintenance of proper professional standards Is not Ihe business of the AEA—pcrhaiic the most Important bushier It has. i The quantitative reduction in public education —that is. overcrowded classrooms, reduced school terms, curtailed curricula and the like—which many districts will suffer tn the next t«rm Is readily apparent. But the qualitative reductive, which Is far more dangerous, Is harder to see. This results from lower standards and the replacement of fully-qualified, experienced personnel with low- salaried Instructors who may have little If any special training or aptitude for Ihe difficult Job of (raining our children. Lack of funds must not be allowed to eat Into this of our public school system. The demand for an actual Increase in standards is an r-ntirely proper one even In these time?. It is up lo the lax-paying public to see that the raeins for enforcing It are provided. —ARKANSAS GAZETTE SO THEY SAY Killjoy Will Be There once over lightly- By A A.
