Th« man In th« Krtmlin mar •ven have understood Hint th« world'i patience with Russian obstructionism hai worn perilously thin. If »o, Gromyko got no surprise at San Francisco when the assembled nations acted with remarkable accord in adopting a rigid ««t of rules to curb delaying tactics. The Russians may therefore have concluded that the best they could salvag* at this moment was to try to brand th* treaty as dictation by America, a virtual edict imposed upon a puppet Japan and sold by high pressure to other nations. Gromyko's behavior fits that pattern. Yet if that was his aim, he was shooting for small stakes. And lie didn't win4hem. Small nations as well as Hie U. S. and Hritain sought speed and action at San Francisco. Nearly all stressed how fairly the pact was drawn, and put the finger on Russia as simply trouble-maker. In the end, Russia's performance must stand us something of a mystery, lo be dispelled perhaps by future events. But there is no mystery about the gen- oral meaning of the Japanese treaty. It is a dramatic stride toward stability and security for the Far East, a move away from chaos toward order. It is an historic event and a triumph for free men. Jap Treaty Is Historic Move From Chaos Toward Order Six years after its formal surrender in World War II, Japan once more becomes an independent nation. But in this rebirth of its nationhood there is no magic. The treaty-signing at San Francisco is a prelude to many complex problems. Japan's economic relations with its Asiatic 'neighbors, especially Red Ghina/iare yet to be worked out. Some Pacific countries which suffered Japanese aggression still distrust * their former enemy. U. S. defense pacts with Australia, New Zealand and the Philippines reflect this fear. The San Francisco ceremony nevertheless is a proper occasion for rejoic- ** Ing. It signals a gain not alone for Japan but for all the free world. Unmarred by vindictive terms, this treaty is a charter of hope: an encouragement to the Japanese to take their place in the comity of nations, to become a full partner with other free men. The treaty means, too, that Japan has been won to the side of the West in the great struggle with Russian communism. Japan's industry, its energetic people, its talent for accomplishment will buttress the forces of liberty. The United States may rightfully claim a large share of credit, not only for the treaty itself, but for bringing Japan to the estate where hopeful independence was possible. Our generally enlightened policies have helped lead the nation away from oppressive militarism to the beginnings of- democracy and a spirit of good will. This is a crushing defeat for Russia, to whom Japan is a coveted prize outranked only by Germany. By blocking all early treaty efforts and then standing aside as the West went ahead on its own, Russia barred to itself any further role in Japan's future. Certainly Moscow will seek to offset this blunder, but the lask will be infinitely harder now. How the Soviet Union will try to regain lost ground is anyone's guess. San Francisco provided little hint. We gave the Russians a ready-made propaganda platform by arranging the treaty ceremony. Some observers feel it was a bad mistake on our part. But if it was, the Reds failed to take advantage of it. Andrei Gromyko and his Red compatriots did not obstruct as they might have. They held out no really alluring bait to disgruntled Asiatics—as they were expected to do. They did not even dissuade some of these, iike the Philippines and Indonesia, from signing the treaty. Why didn't Russia go to greater ef- for lo upset treaty plans? Moscow knew, of course, that it could not pr«v«nt th« signing but only Couldn't Blame Him There was something almost embarrassing about the efforts to guard Andrei Gromyko against the reported plot on his life at San Francisco. Involved in assuring him a protective screen were the FBI, the State Department, the Army military police, the California highway police, the San Mateo county sheriff's police, and local police from San Francisco and eight suburban communities. Who could blame Gromyko if h« now returns home to describe the United States as something of a police slat* itself?

The United states hai already witnessed several Instance* of crippling strikes In essential Industries In which government should have [he power to eftect stabilization on fair terms. That Incidentally is not achievable by government seizure of management and ultimate settlement on uneconomic terms. A weakness In the emergency provision under which Mr. Truman acted Thursday Is visible In the hasle with which the fact-finding panel must bring In Its report on which Mr. Truman can base pn injunction. There Is a further question o[ the efficacy of enjoining a strike. The miners can not be enjoined from permanently quitting the Job, which of course would not be a strike, even if the desertion were a mass one. We arc never going to get very fnr in sound labor relations until we are able to restrain effectively the selfish aspects of job operation from all angles. There U no good repression of fair Inbor interests. There Is no good strike against [air conditions. All the traffic will bear is bad policy on both sides of the management-worker table.

If not th« worst, there IB at least plenty of bad yet to come. Everything will have to go on as usual till the treaty li ratified by the governments of the countries whose foreign ministers signed it. In the case of the United Stales, that inpan.s the treaty hfl* to be ratified by the U. S. Semite, Peter Ed son ; There Is rhnnee lhe ate will little Ken- get round to hearing* and ratification >efore the scheduled Oct. I adjournment. That means the matter will >e held over aa unfinished business 'or the new session convening in January 1952. There to a provision in the treaty ,hat It imi*L be ratified within five months by * majority of the stgn- ;rs. That would put the date off 111 July 1952. If not ratified by a Majority then, Individual countries nay separately ratify this or any oilier treaty suitable to the Japs. Even if the Son Francisco conference had blown wide open, the United Stutes would probably have made a separate peace with Japan. The U. d. had already begun to relieve Japan ot some responsibilities a defeated enemy And an occu- pied country. The purpose of this wai to help prepare Japan to stand on Its own 'eet, economically. For several years, maybe longer, this is going to be nip and tuck. American aid to Japan was ended last June 30. In the approximately five years since the end of the war, this aid has amounted to nearly billion. It was begun us n relief program. Later It wa-s turned to Industrial rehabilitation and the sending of Japinesa officials, businessmen and students to the United States lor education in democracy. On lop of this, considerable Indirect aid accrued to the Japanese. U. S. armies of occupation stationed In Japan were paid there and spent a lot of money in that country. There are no reliable data on how much this aid amounted to. Gost.s of the military occupation were borne by the Japanese government. This was ft considerable drain on the Japanese economy. This has cost the Japanese government over $300 million a year, 01 between $1.5 billion and $3 billion since the end of the war. Effective last Aug. 7, the U. 8. cut this bin In half. The Japanese have made a. pretty good thing out of the Korean war. Japan's index of industrial production has risen to 42 per cent above the pre-war 1932-36 level. Kconomy Bolstered by War How much the Korean war has helped Japan's economy Is shown by the export- and import figures. In June, 1050, Japan's exports were valued at $66 million. A year later they were $120 million, imports were $73 million in 1950, A year later they were $185 million. While these figures show an unfavorable trade balance, Japanese foreign trade for the" calendar year 1951 is expected to balance off at •dbout $1.9 billion. Imports of this volume will be offset by commercial exports of $1.5 billion plus invisible receipts of $150 mDlion and American troop payments of $250 million, If Japan can maintain these levels of trade, she can at least pay her own way and get by without outside economic aid. If U. S, troops are withdrawn, the story will be much different. Where the rub cor/es is that Japan's whole trade pattern has to be readjusted. Before the war, Japan sold silk to the U. S. and bought cotton. Now the silk trade Is pretty wei: shot by synthetics. But Japan still needs cotton. Before the war, Japan got iron and Manchuria. sources ore and cooking coal from China supply are now cut otf. Japan wil have to buy from Canada or thi U. S. Costs will be higher and dollar exchange will be required t< make payments. The problem this presents Is thi same as the European trade problen The United Slates must Increase its imports from Japan, or else flgun on some kind of an economic ai< program. The peace treaty wt! merely make Japan a new economi frontier. Japan can't just be turne loose if tt's going down the economi drain. In some cases continued bed wetting appears to be the result of a sort of resentment usually directed wards the parents. The youngster nconscIousJy, of course, is trying to tmlsh the parents for some real or ancied action* which the child does ot like. Physical punishment Is certainly ot the answer to the probJem. The act that enuresis almost'invariably ccur.t during sleep Indicate' that it s not done purposely and nierefore unlshment would not be of the lightest benefit and could In fact • harmful. From the practical atandpolnt, what can be done for bed-wetting? h some cases, the aid of a psy- hiatrtst should be, obtained with he aim of getting at the basic men- cauGe. In some cases, however, more simple methods may suffice to help a youngster to get over this unfortunate habit, It Is'usually advisable to cut out fluids of all kinds as much as possible after three or four o'clock In the afternoon.

However, the Post Office Department does not like that sort of language going through the mails. ^. Sen.
