All for Love? Proposals for Chinese Aid Call for Careful Checking The attorney for Miss Judith Coplon says her association wilh Valentine Gubilchcv was one of kissless, spy less affection.

Rut we can't help wondering if Miss Coplon was simply trying to prove that the quickest way to a man's heart is through his pispatch case. This One's Yours, 1 Think! | Viewed With Suspicion or Hope, Voice of Kremlin is Significant Gen. Clare Chennault is admittedly prejudiced in the Chinese Nationalists' favor, but he certainly knows his China. He has fought with the Chinese and lived with them for years. He knows the country and the people, their strengths and their weaknesses. So it is probably a presumption even to question his recommendations of policy toward China. Yet we find it hard lo see how they would save that country from corn- communism. There is nothing novel in the general's proposed solution. He would have the United States undertake a new program of military and economic assistance. He estimates the cosj at $350,000,000 a year. How he arrived at this figure lie dues not say. But his guess is probably as good as anyone's. He does not suggest that American troops be sent to China. But he points out that there are still available "vast stockpiles of arms and materials lying in the Philippines and Pacific bases." With these, he told a Senate committee, "a new Chinese resistance may yet be armed." "The thing lacking in China," General Chennault said, "is a reasonable hope of defensive victory to give the will to resist. This \ve can create if we choose." I£ that is the only thing needed lo turn the tide in China, then we should certainly choose to create it. But if one may form a remote-control opinion li'om news accounts of the Chinese civil war, it would seem that tliere could be other obstacles to a Nationalist survival. This opinion is bused on the assumption that the news accounts are accurate. If they are, then the Nationalists started out the war with modern American equipment superior in quality and quantity to the Communists'. A vast amount pi that equipment has now fallen into Communist hands. Have we any assurance that by providing millions' worth of further equipment America could revive a will to resist and reverse the whole picture? There have been fairly recent stories of rifts between the Nationalist groups headed by Generalissimo Chiang and acting President Li. There have been - -\ stories of war-weary cities which took \. truce negotiations out ot the government's hands and made peace with the Communists themselves. And, ol course, there the old stories of a corrupt govcrn- '" ment which cannot have made the sorry ' lot of the average Chinese any easier. | Something must be done in the East, j and any suggestion for an American ' policy there is better than none.

If the present rent received by a "small" landlord is less than one and one- lliird times hl« operating expenses, he can raise the rent to equal °»e and three-sevenths times his expenses. (A landlord Is "small" who owns not more than lour rental units.) If Ihe rent received by a larger landlord Is less than one and one-fourth times his expenses, he can raise it to equal one and one-lhlrd times his expenses. Trouble lurks in this formula. Operating expenses will be disputed in endless cases; many owners will seek to pad them beyond reason, and many renters to trim them beyond reason. The formula allows for no profit on capital Improvements, yet It Is In the public Interest to have the housing supply improved. Cosl-plus makes high cosls a source ol profit and low costs a penalty. Strict application of this particular rent formula would cause topsy-turvy situations In which badly decayed buildings wllh high upkeep cosls would be eiililled to higher rents than fresh new housing designed for low maintenance expense. Some of these difficulties can be smoothed out by wise use of the discretion vested In the federal rent officials, but the rent-Increase formula now faces Ihcm with clogged dockets If counted cases, The St. Louis rent ollicc was swamped by calls and callers on the first day. The administrators are taking over a control task comparable with the Public Service Commission's control of utility rate increases—ana yet Congress passed the rent law in the belief that it was a step away from detailed administrative regulation and loward decontrol of rents. Whatever difficulties now ensue, the new formula seems a fair interpolation of what Congress actually wrote Inlo the law. The Admlnis tralion is lo blame, nevertheless, in not asking Congress lor a simple general rent Increase, and Congress Is to blame for not ordering a straightforward increase Instead of throwing mailers into this painfully complicated situation. —ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH. By Peter Edion NEA Washington Sorrespontend WASHINGTON —(NEA1— Many actors lay behind President Truman's decision not to rcappoint Vice Adm. W. W. Smith as chairman of he US. Maritime Commission. There has been much criticism of oadying to the shipping lines and he shipbuilders by the commission ince the end of the war. The President's own Maritime Policy Committee under Charles T. Keller, reporting in 1947. made a number of recommendations for changes in the commission's organ- nation. Congress has been extreme- y vexed at the commission's operations. And the Hoover Commission on government, reorganization was equally scornful. Comptroller General Lidsay C. Warren's blast at Maritime Commission accounting practices is now 7 viewed as not having been entirely Justified. Also In defense of the commission, its budget has been cut so much by Congress lhat it cannot carry out the duties assigned to it by law. But more than anything else, the commission's troubles* have arisen from personnel problems and a clash of nersonallttes on the commission itself. Previous chairmen of thn i>farl- [ lime Commission, Josenh P. Kennedy and Adm. Emory S. Land. 1 were strong characters. They hnd. full While House backing. They op- : [crated in a war alinosphere w'len morale was hiph and monev nlcnt- tful. The auxiliary War Shipplne 1 Administration under Lewis W ... , was able to hire exnert-s Irlsrhl from the shinning industry— which the Maritime Commission can't do—and ran a highly efficient operation. Smith's Record Good Vice Ad succeed La Naval Transoprt. He had a splendid war record and saw considerable action. When he first came to Washington, however, he was given to open boasting about his capacity for conviviality. He got over that in the last yenr or so. nnd Is generally credlled with having done a better job up to the time he was eased out. The postwar commission Smith had to work with was not what could be called highly experienced In maritime affairs. Nearly all were Th. DOCTOR SAYS By Edwin P. Jordan, M. D.

This l» called Jaundice. Jaundice can be t complication of several different kinds of Infectious diseases or the result of anything which blocks the outflow of bile, such as a gallstone lying In the passageway, or a clump of parasites. Jaundice Is often accompanied „.. an uncomfortable itching of the skin which nothing seems to relieve until the Jaundice itself disappears or the cause has been removed. The amount of bile pigments o coloring matter in the blood it not necessarily reflected exactly by the depth of yellow color in the skin. The only way to measure the bile pigmenls in 'the blood Is to carry out certain accurate chemical tests of the blood serum. Surgical Treatment When tin Jaundice is caused by obstruction of outflow from the gallbladder. surgery is usually necessary, at least If the condition has lasted for any length ol time. Sometimes the obstruoling gall- or oilier substance can be removed and drain? restore. In other cases the entire gallbladder may have to be taken out or some other operation employed. Jaundice can be produced also by certain poisons or infections. Some poisons, such as trinitrotoluene (T.N.T.) act on the liver so that bile pigments are not passed through and accumulate in the blood, in other cases, accumulation of bile coloring matter in the tissues is caused by increased destruction of red blood cells which are the original source of this pigment There are many other causes o jaundice. Including a disease whtcl was quite common among militarj personnel during World War n called infectious hepatitis. • * • Note: Dr. Jordan Is unable t answer Individual questions from By DeWltt MarKeuie AP Forel(i) Affaira An*ly«t The Motcow radio — which of course speak* with the voice of the Kremlin—broadcasts that collaboration between the American and t^h Russian economic system* 1» botlf possible-»!id desirable. That's a highly important statement, whether you regard it with suspicion or with hope. It's particularly Interesting, coming as It doea almost on the eve of the Big Foul conference set for May 23. I see no quarrel with the thesl» that American and Russian economic systems might collaborate, despite the ideological clash between the two nations. Communistic and democratic nations have similar economic needs. They must be fed, clothed and housed, and life otherwise must be made worth while. Surely they should be able to engage in economic operations to meet these requirements. This fact In no way conflicts with the IruUm lhat democracy ?.n« communism cannot mix Ideologlcal- c ly.

All the commissioners in fact, are vigorous nnd possessec of slronc convictions. But they had trouble in agreeing and there was no one to make them work as a team. Political pressure r>' thl commission has been heavy. Ship pine interests from the variou waterfronts have tried to move in on this situation and make one o the commissioners "theirs". Tli result has been delav and lack o dccission on many vital matters. It has taken mor than a year t get clearance on a new supprllne for the Atlantic passenger trade. Only five other ne.w passenger liners have been approved. More than twice lhat number Is needed. It has taken nearly four years to perfect plans for the prototype successor to the Liberty and Victroy ships. QUESTION: What causes the Irect to Congress. But the question toneue to burn? f shipping rates, ship subsidies, ANSWER: It Is often difficult to , , onstmctlon, leasing, sale of sur- lus ships and preservation of the all complicated eserve fleet are echnlcal subjects. Recently Chairman Schuyler Otis Bland of the House Merchant Marne Committee and "Father of the Merchant Marine" dumped many of hese problems back on the commission. His instructions are to work out recommended solutions for all these problems and bring up Congress a clean bill on what should be done. This Is probably the biggest Job lhat will face Maj-Ocn. Phillip B. Fleming, whom President Truman lias nominated as new chairman of the Maritime Commission. In addition, he will probably have „ number of reorganization problems on his hands. Chief of these will be getting the four commissioners lo take limited authority on themselves, delegate operating responsibilities to an administrative staff of higher caliber, and work as a team instead of as Individuals The Hoover Commission has recommended sweeping changes In Maritime commission organization Among them, reduction of the commission to three members, remova of restrictions against eninloymen of men who have been In the ship- pine industry during three previous vears and creation of an Industry find the cause.

Finally London broke off relations In 1921 and didn't resumt them again until 1»M. . When President FranXlin n.
