So completely unacceptable that even those who resolved never to fight again would fight to the extent of self-destruction rather than submit to communism, which would amount to destruction anyway." No war-monKers, these men. They felt so strongly about the self-defeating nature of war that they had pledged themselves never to fight again. That they have changed their minds in the face of evil communism is the most eloquent answer that could ever be given to shallow thinkers who would appease the Reds. Reader's Views It Seems One Irishman Had a Big Hand in This Robert H. Black, a young Marine Corps sergeant, Ls Indirectly responsible for one of the most humiliating defeats the British have suffered in Korea. With typical Marine cockiness, he recently told some of his British friends, "We can beat you at any game you want to play." With confident grins, they suggested a cricket match, much to tlie consternation of Sergeant Black. The match took place on Ihe playing fields of Inchon. Sergeant Black and his Marine buddies were flabljeigaslcd when, after two hours and 45 minutes, It was announced that the baffling cricket scoring system showed they had defeated their British opponents \>y. 39 rum. The Marines still are unable to figure out how they won, but Correspondent Keyes Beech, of The Cb.Ica.go Daily News, has offered the keen observatibn that the umpir» was an Irishman. —ATLANTA JOURNAL This Retreat From Pacifism Laid to Communism P«t«r Lyn«, a London correspondent for th« Christian Science Monitor, ha<L • itory t» tell the other day that war- r«nt» the attention of all of us. H« endured the Battle of Britain during World War II. He was one of a jroup of people who decided they would not that struggle through to the end but would be non-combatanti if war ever came again. "Thii decUIon wai not due to ordinary pacifism or panic," he write*. "It wai long and carefully thought out. . . . We decided that no cause could Juetify the destruction and misery which would be wrought. It would not make •enie, we said, to destroy the world in an attempt to save it." It'i 10 years since'the Battle of Britain, nearly »lx years since the war ended. How do Lyne and hia friends in that group feel today about their resolution? The-prospect now is. If anything, worse than it was then. The A-bomb and the guided missile are much improved over World War II. Britons well know what it's like to live in "Buzz Bomb Alley," so their reactions to present- day dangers have more meaning than most. And so what would Lyne and his group do? "We have changed »ur minds," he nays. "We could not do anything else but fight." Why this striking reversal? Keplies Lyne: "The reason for the change is the nature of communism." If the issue is whether or not lo accept the Communist way of life, he says, his group is determined that it "will not on any account accept it." Some argue that it would be betler to yield to communism than loose the forces of world destruction, l/yno iincl his friends considered that argument. They asked themselves whether they couldn't exist in some sort of cocoon within a Red society. And they decided they couldn't. They took partial support for their view from the report of a missionary they heard discussing Communist China. First they listened to all the material advantages said to have come lo China under communism. And then came the grim part. It was a story of the invasion of the Chinese mind by the Reds: the changing of habits and thoughts, the breakdown of the best in Chinese family life, the use of political and class measuring sticks for judging art, mnsiu, literature, all culture, and science as well. Concludes Lyne: "This rtprM0iiU a alaudu'd oX valua* State Department Needs Congressional Watching. Whether tber« arc redi In the Btat* Department now, aft Senator McCarthy charge*, w* don't ki\ow.

A loyal worker who talk* too much, who can b« flattered into telling in- alde stuff, may be as dangerous as a Russian spy. The Stale Department today holds, to an enormous degree, the fate of the nation In 1U hand*. It makes the foreign policies on which are hinged the Issues of peace or war. And reds, or loose talkers, In thnt department, are not the only hazards that may weaken It. The department may ruffle foreign feelings, may create irritations among friends as well as EMicmtps, by parading too much grandeur in the face of the world's poverty. t There's a trend In thnt direction. Senator Douglas iD,), of Illinois, charged thnt the department is overstaffed, and that It spends too Invi.shly en oniaic. costly buildings in foreign capitals. Hussm, a huir-bnrbnric nation, makes such struts. American representatives abroad should hold to the finer, higher qualities of simplicity. yet dignity, which ate the liEtllmiu-ks of sincere worth. On that basis, the clepiuiment might hnve exercised more influence, and made fewer mistakes. This department nreds the watchful attention of Congress. —ARKANSAS DEMOCRAT SO THEY SAY There'll Be a Slight Delay Peter fdson't Washington Column — Reds' Lack of Sea Power Keeps Navy Same Despite Army Growth WASHINGTON (NEA)— Increase f sian subs are better than Amcri- of the Air Force to 150 wings or more rimy not necessarily mean an Increase site of the Navy, though it would mean a bigger Army for expanded air base defenses.

The acute ases are most commonly due to ome kind of food poisoning.
