A statute labeling all party mem-' bers automatically as Russian agents would have its drawbacks. The Reds would go to extremes to conceal membership. In the effort to ferret them out, many innocents could he hurt. But that would call for no better safeguard of our civil liberties than we need right now. Industrial Genius Reds Utilize U. S. Laws That They'd Like to Destroy When the federal government seized seven reported Hawaii on charges of conspiring to teach violent overthrow of the U. S. government, bail of f 75,000 each was demanded for them. But Federal Judge Delbert Metzger cut the figure to $5000, adding the comment that "bail was never intended as a punishment before trial." The request for high bail evidently was dictated by the fact that several top Communist leaders, including four already convicted of conspiring to advocate overthrow of the government, have recently jumped bail and gone into hiding. Federal officials hoped either to keep these new suspects in jail pending trial, or to make the forfeit of bail tremendously expensive. Senator O'Mahoney of Wyoming as- gailed Metzger for his action, and predicted he would get scant consideration for re-appointment when his term expires Sept. 28. (Territorial judges, unlike those on th« mainland, do not get lifetime appointments.) But it is clear that Metzger acted in accord with the law as he saw it. There is no evidence he was motivated by any undue consideration for the alleged Communist conspirators. Possibly the law is at fault. Under the Smith Act which led to the prosecution of the original 11 top Communists and has now brought the arrest of many others, the Communist Party as a whole cannot be condemned as a conspirator. Each individual's scheming must be established separately. Thus, until otherwise proved, a Communist is in the eyes of U. S. law merely « member of a legitimate political party. As such he is entitled to all rights and privileges protecting every U. S. citizen in the expression of his political views. Yet the trial of the original 11 Reds, plus a voluminous historical record of communism, makes it clear that Communist Party members are by the fact of their membership agents of a foreign government, namely, the Soviet Union. They have no legitimate political purpose. Their only aim is the goal dictated by Moscow: overthrow of democratic government everywhere. Iron party discipline sooner or later rules out the soft-heads captivated by the Kremlin's "socialist objectives." If Communist Party members are actually Russian agents in some degree or other, why shouldn't American law recognize it? Why shouldn't they be denied the privileges of citizenship vhich they would outlaw the moment they gained power? ' Then judges like Metzger wouldn't have any great trouble deciding between A little while ago a man who has had extraordinary influence on American living passed his 75th milestone. He is Charles F. Kcltcring, long-time General Motors engineer, a technician who epitomizes U. S. industrial ingenuity. Moat of Kettci ing's research has been in the automotive field. Rut the impact . of his work goes far beyond. His is a keen, searching mind that tirelessly pursues the new and undiscovered. To him, the quest for better scientific answers to our daily needs is a veritable crusade. In a characteristic statement, he said on his birthday: "The fundamental things of the next 25 years are the liltle unrecognized things of today." America's exalted reputation for industrial achievement is founded upon the works of men like Keltering. In paying homage to him, may we honor also his contemporaries and forebears who have shared in giving this country its technical supremacy: guarantor at once of our high living standard and our security. Reader's Views United Europe Eisenhower Urge Gen. Dwight Elsenhower is correct In his assertion that, If nil ol Western Europe were united today under a single government, the threat ol Russia would disappear. But it is to be hoped that he is wrong that this Is the key to th« whole question ot defense. Union Is practicable and desirable but unlikely In the foreseeable future. From the simple logic of the situation, on one aide there li a union of governments under the •Ingle head of Moscow. It Is more of a coercion than a union, but It Inkee Its orders from the Kremlin. On the other side in Western Europe are ranged not only separate nations but separate blocs. The three Scandinavian kingdoms stand off together. Spain Is a separate entity. The Benelux group haa ll« own economic interest* apart from the question of a more" jjTtjeral mutual defense. Prom Britain to Turkey, In" the arc swung loosely, far from cohesively, around the Soviet Interior lines, there are separate governments, separata Interests, and age-old traditions that can not b« easily submerKcrt in common interests. The threat from the East against Western Europe Is a recurring one over the centurlei Attlla and Genghis Ghs-n were the major figures that exploited it into action, though for centuries the Turks hammered at the gales of Vienna. Western governments went on serenely In the assumption that they would not be struck by the lightning. Awareness may be greater now, realization more acute that In union there Is strength, but effectuation moves slowly. General Elsenhower believes that unification In military strength will go a long way toward securing unity in political direction. He may b* right. The fact that an American heads the still spectral nrmy takes some of the curse off Internal Jealousy which Is the chief block to a political union. For again and again the question bobs up: It w-e merge, who leads? Britons do not want ft government under an Italian. France would not tnist a German. Who puts faith In Franco? The curse of Babel Is still with us. —DALLAS MOPNINC1 NEWS SO THEY SAY 'For Distinguished Service once over lightly-. By A.

GILROY. D.D Christian missions began when Jesus sent His twelve disciples out to preneh the kindom of God, and to heal the sick (Luke 9:l-9>, and wr.en He appointed another seventy, and sent them forth, also, two by iwo. into "every city and place, .vhiiher He himself would come" <Luke 10). 'Hie aospcl spread to Antioch in Syria there were 16 Antiochs in the ancient world), and from Antioch began the great missionary journeys of St. Paul, and his com- ed heights at unheard-of speeds. Mayhap old age beckons me early, but I have found that one need* not be drawing Social Security to decide that certain adventures-especially the widow-producing ones— are best relegated to bolder chap* with less appetite for the oft-tiresome business of merely remaining a live. It's a sure sign thai I'm graduating into the fuddy-duddy class, I >, but when altitudes and speeds begin Bounding like something from the federal budget, then I check the bet. I don't mind keeping tip with the times but I prefer to put certain limits on the height and speed at which 1 travel. Perhaps I lack the curiosity of a good newspaperman, but I can't for the life of me think of anything out in space that 1 care to inspect first hand. If there be other inhabited worlds in this universe, Peter Epson's Washington Column — Revised Legal Code Would Plug Handy Loopholes in Our Laws (Third and last of a series on new laws to beat the crime wave.)

At the present time, there nre no enforcible penalties for concealing or smuggling n in odcton O f 27 an bill" In?heSouse Senl Crime Committee has picked one of these bills which has already passed the House, and will push It foi passage by the Senate. This bill would increase sentences for convicted dope peddlers.

Criminals have good lawyers, too, So as one highway ol Illegal Untie Is closed, criminal lawyers will nd- musclers-in. Looking lawmakers are trying vis* their client* of legal alleys where they can operate wit IT snfe- ty. The trucking industry, for instance. is beginning to attract the ahead, the to put legal roadblocks on as ninny of these criminal byways as they can. Snnate crime investigators found evidence of a few cases of racketeering already in the trucking business. Joe Adonis and his pals were found to be interested irv concerns Fec\uenl convictions ten to 20 years. For sales to minors, the penalty [ would be 20 years to life imprisonment. But Judges and lawyers who oppose statutory minimum sentences nre fighting these measures, A small but Important change is proposed for the Federal appeals act. It would grant Federal prose- panions, and the others who share his zeal lo preach the Gospel the regions beyond. Even in the darkest periods In j the world, and in tfie church, there have been adventurous, pioneering souls, fired with a passion to extend the boundaries of Christian faith, Christian knowledge, and Christian conquest. Missions and missionaries have lad their disparagers and critics, but the missionary annals as a whole provide a record- of high endeavor, on the part of self-sacrificing, earnest, devoted servants of Christ. Trader Horn, In his book so widely popular some years back, remarked that David Livingstone was more disposed to say, "Let us march" than "Let us pray"; but the implied criticism, while it em- phasizeri Livingstone's great work of discovery and exploration in the opening up of Africa, was a futile Jibe in so far as it alfected Livingstone's deepest purpose. Fie was in Africa as * Christian missionary. The story of his life from his days as a lad in a Scotch textle mill, snatching lines from » cutors the right, now denied, to appeal court orders for supression of evidence. Getting supression of evidence orders Is common practice in defending narcotics charges. i Tightening of Uquor sale and transportation laws Is strongly recommended by the Crime Committee.

The new Idea to grant permits for two years with contracts for hauling new cars 1 only. Renewals would be denied law from Detroit and Edpewnter. N.J., plants. Intimidation of competitors by blackjacks has been involved. To meet this threat, the Senate Crime Committee advocates revision of national transportation policy violators. One bill that may raise a slorni of protest would provide penalties (or violation of the Webb-Kenyon act of 1913. This law fakes it a crime to ship liquor Into any law. Under present law, there is no bans Its importation provision for revocation of an In- ~~ terstnlc Commerce Commission cense. The only standards are pui- llc convpnlpnce.and necrssUy. It Is now proposed to add n requirement state which from outside the state. Todav Kansas and Okla- aliens Into the U. S. one new bill would close these loopholes. Would Change Perjury Law Change In the perjury law to facilitate conviction in criminal cases is an Important recommendation of the Crime Committee. Today, If a wilnes* makes two contradictory statements, the government must prove which statement is fnlw. This would now be amended so as to make contradictory statements in themselves perjury, without the necessity of proof on which is right. Another technical change proposed would make It possible for Congressional sergeants-at-arms to enlist the fttd of any law enforcement officer in serving Congressional subpoenas. This refor:*i is put forward us a result of the Crime Committee's own difficulty in appre- hending'some 14 witnesses. As soon as the Senate passed a special res- olutEon, nuthorizinB; the FBI to assist, the H flocked in. Finally, creation of a permanent Federal Crime Commission Is proposed. This was one of Ken. Estes Kefauver's original ideas. He and other members of his Committee feel that regular Judiciary and Interstate Commerce subcommittee can carry on the work already start ed. But a new. Independent body is needed to keep s constant eye on criminal conditions In America. It? book propped up as he pas.sed to and fro at the loom, with ~hL achievement of a medical education, and his life in Africa, Is no only of thrilling interest, but U o quickening inspiration.

But continued mission a r ichievements in some parts of th world can be seen today only igainst discouraging and tragic re- •rs'als in other parts. In China particularly disaster ins struck, and it might seem that -he long and fruitful work of gen- cations of Christian missioners Tad been destroyed, if one could believe that the sced.s of truth can ever be entirely destroyed, and the patism efforts of faith forever nullified. Behind the Iron curtain In Europe, too, destructive persecuton has fallen upon areas In which there had been notable progress. . It is a dark hour, with obstacles greater than early modern missionaries encountered even In savage and cannibalistic lands. But missionary faith and zeal have persisted in many dark hours in the past, and ?o we who believe in then let them remain In peace in their galaxies. .

But somehow I can't envision that tt man's destiny to leave thl» planet without beginning the Journey in a box. What set off this train of Inter- ilanetary thought was a news item to the effect that scientists from U nations were meeting In London fo pool their brain cells on the problem of constructing a "satellite" to float son mile's in the air. Prom this satellite, moon-bound rockets with human pilots would-be launched. The article didn't say what they planned to do upon landing on the moon, or even getting 500 miles upward from home. Whatever the deal, however, I don't think I want any of that sort of real sstate. The scientists figure it might take 20 years to get this satellite built, or It might tak§ only five. It depends, they said, on how much cash the group can promote. Suit yourselves, boys, but don't pass the hat in my direction. I irefer to hoard my nickels until can procure a W.OOO bungalow 'irmly attached to this planet. That is. if I can ever save up the 12.000 it will take to build the durn thing.
