THURSDAY, AUGUST 1«, X-1KK.T OOUkUUl MEW THf NATION Economic and Arms Programs, Plus Pacts and Other Plans All Aimed at Bringing World Unity By J&MM Mulow WASHINGTON, Aug. 18. W>—By this time you may be getting dizzy trying to follow all the international plans, pacts and programs. The Marshall plan, the Atlantic pact, amis for Europe, the Council of Europe, Western Federation. What do they mean? Tney mean—except for Western* Federation, when Is something in when the future—just this: The nations of the Western world are teaming up in one way or another. Take the plans one by obe: The Marshall plan—This is economic help which the United States Is giving in 16 nations to help them recover from the , war and stand off communism. They are Britain.' Prance, Western Germany, Netherlands, Italy, Austria, Belgium, Luxembourg, .Greece, Norway, Sweden, Trieste, ttTurkey, Denmark, Iceland, Ireland. The Atlar^ic pacrl—under this, a military alliance, the following 12 nations agree to go to one another's help If they're attacked: United States, Canada, Belgium, Britain, Luxembourg, France, Netherlands, Norway, Denmark, Italy, Iceland, Portugal, The arms program—Under this the U.S.—if congress approves—wtll help arm its partners in the Atlantic pact, or some of them, so they could withstand a Russian attack for a while. Congress has begun debate, it's expected to approve. Council Not a Defense Agency The Council of Europe—Thirteen European nations taking psM. The council can't really do any thing Its job Is limited to debate an recommendations on political, cultural and some economic matters. It cannot discuss defense prob- ; lems. That's a job for the Atlantic ' pact countries. The 13 nations taking part are: Britain, France, Italy. Belgium. Netherlands. Sweden. Norway, Denmark, Ireland, Iceland, Luxembourg, Greece, Turkey, The council is really a parliament of nations, Europe's first. It's the outgrowth of the European unity movement begun by Winston Churchill in 1946. The council can't enforce anything, so its findings on whatever ^^t examines can. only be recommendations. That's another way of saying this: No nation which has joined it has yielded any of its own sov- erignty- That is. no nation or group of nations in the council can tell any other member-nation what It must do. The council Is divided Into two bodies: a committee of ministers (a cabinet) and a consulative assembly ta parliament.) Censorship Irks Some Members Each member nation of the council is" allowed one delegate—its own foreign minister—in the committee of ministers. This committee can limit and control the matters to be discussed by the assembly. In the assembly there's alreadj some opposition to this rigid censorship by the committee of ministers. In the assembly—which is free only to approve or disapprove matters put before it by the minister —there are more than 100 members or delegate, from the member- nations. The number of delegate, from each country depends upon Its size. The council started meeting Aug. 8. v This may be the first step toward if real union of the countries a Western Europe. Federation—A number of resohi tions have been introduced in Congress this year, urging various kind of union among nations. They range from suggestions that a limited number of Western na- ions unite, somewhat as the United tales are united, to a union of all the members of the United Nations. No action • ran be expected in Congress before next year. Hear- ng.s on the resolutions may atari n the senate in January.

A recent maguinc poll uncovered some interesting sUU&tln on just hov well house-broken the American husband Is. According to the ficurc* thus brough to light M.8 per cent of the 2390 husbands who answered an American Magazine poll do the dishei with some degree of regularity. Fifty-three per cent sometimes get their own br«»kJasf. J».1 per cent know hov to cook a meal, and 42,» per cent admit they scrub a floor now and then. Now there's a report American women will probably read with even greater Interest than tt» recent Kinsey report. At least, judging from the mail I get from wives, the number one complaint husbands hasn't anything to do with ex or morals. The number one complaint in my mall Is that the husband Is % no-good, lazy loafer around the house. Generality Ii a Deadlier Weapon So I'm afraid the American hut- banda who don't ever lend a hand around home are going to have some statistic* thrown at them. The statistics will be tempting to women—there'! no doubt about H. It's much more shaming to announce that 94,9 per c'*"' of husbands help with the dishes than to argue that John Smith all-ays helps Mary. Cause Papa'i retort to any specific is: "Ye»h. and look at him. How would you like to i married to HIM?" But juat In case the itatUHcs don't aha me a lazy husband Into mending his ways, a wife ought not to let them make, her leel ahe suffering alone when ahe tackles a sink full of dirty dishes, without any offer of help, or drags herself ottt of bed to get a helpless husband'* breakfast. Let her take another look »t those statistic*. It says Ml p,, c , nt o f husbands do the -llshes with some degree of regularity. Once a year on Mother's Day could S- called some degree of regularity. Fifty-three per cen' sometimes get their own breakfast. Probably when Mama ts In the hospital hav Ing another baby. Thirty-eight per cent know how to whip up a meal.
