Conanl doe a neither; y«t h» does not sea war. • Extremism Solves No Problems Conant's Cool Mind Cuts Through War Scare Murk Rarely does Dr. James Bryant Conant of Harvard apeak publicly without •tirring the mind and conscience of the nation. Amid th« clamor of voices shouting that a third world war is Inevitable, Conant offers a calmer counsel. He declares that war can be averted, albeit, by only "th« narrowest of margins." ' •. Though Conant is a scientist, he is also an astute observer of world affairs. His forecasts are never reckless but always informed and careful. For the next decade at least, he sees n« release from the constant strain of war threat. But he still believes the great storm will not descend. Time and again, h« ii convinced, one or the other of the major antagonists will hold back because their military leaders won't be able to guarantee final success. -This will be so, says Conant, because the United States and Russa will be in such relative balance militarily that neither can hope for crushing advantage. He sees this stalemate as prelude to a "great settlement" after the 1960's get under way. And he believes a period of genuine peace may then be ushered in. Conan's crystal ball tells him it is the. West's renewal of its armament which creates a stalemate and sets the stage for an accord. Not the "magic of atomic bombs" but balanced military forces enable the Western powers lo equate their strength with Russia's. In fact, he clearly Ihinks the atomic bomb and the whole concept of atomic energy is being vastly overplayed by generals, statesmen and scientists alike. It's his view that as time passes nations will see the bomb as more a liability than an asset. Future scientists, he says, may look bauk on the 19-10's not as the period when atomic energy came into use but the time when certain tools were devised which assisted toward the ultimate use of solar energy. It is this lo which Conant turns as the likeliest source of nnlimtcd cheap power in the decades ahead. Conant's sharply reasoned perspective on our future should arouse hope in many hearts. But it must be noted that^pt counseling laxity in defense. On the contrary: he sees the avoidance of war as the direct consequence of really adequate preparedness. "Frontiers must be protected against invasion by human beings ready to die if necessary," he says. "And those frontiers are for us in the United States the world frontiers of freedom." The tempered tones of a Conanl are the perfect prescription for America in a time when men are moved either lo wax hysterical over our peril, or to Uk» The ultimatum is not a device calculated to smooth the progress of diplomatic discussion. Britain undoubtedly made a mistake when its representative at the recent Iranion oil talks handed an "or else" (statement to Premier Mossadegh, Mossadegh now has chosen to compound the error by issuing an ultimatum to Britain resume talks within two weeks or get your technicians out of the oil refinery at Abadan. There's no question that Mossadegh, irked by Britain's ultimatum and driven by his country's extremists, felt it necessary to be utterly unbending in attitude. But when he broke off the talks he found he had gone too far. Many members of the Iranian parliament did not support thai move. Nor do they support his current ul- itmatum. Unable to win approval of the lower chamber, Mossadegh has insisled upon flinging the faunllet to Britain anyway. What is needed is a less stiffbacked manner on Britain's part, and an Iranian team on the other side which is not goaded by fear of assassination into acts of wild, unreasoning extremism. It's possible those conditions might never exist so long as Mossadegh is premier. One More Hurdle Views of Others Congress' Apathy Toward Crime Bills International Issues and th» pressing problem of national defense have occupied so much of Congress' time in recent months thai domestic legislation has been sorely neglected. For example, the proposed legislation Rimed at controlling major crime has been all hut completely overlooked tn the past lour months. ' It was last May thai the Senate crime committee Introduced the first of its 23 bills which were drafted as R result of thai body's long investigation of underworld activities. However, only one of those bills lias been passed, mid the probable adjournment of Congress Is only three weeki away. .Though It li obvloiu lh»*, our congressmen hav* been extremely busy during the present session, It Is puzzling, nevertheless, that they have been unable to do more on the - anti-crime leg- l.slntian. It it. difficult to understand how they hav« (ailed to realize the urgent need (or enactment of at least a major part of the 23 anti- crime measures. Senator Kelauver apparently Is disturbed over the apathetic attitude of Congress toward the anti-crime bills and has been urging Congress In the past few days to take action on these much needed laws. Many communities throughout the nation were so Inspired by the example set by the crime committee that they opened vigorous battles against the underworld. Their enthusiasm hai not been matched by their representatives in Congress. Crime must be (ought on the .ocaI level, as the Senate crime committee has emphasized so often. Bill that (ight will be made many times more effective If It I* backed by federal law. Congress owes It to the people to take action now on the proposed anti-crime legislation. —ATLANTA JOURNAL SO THEY SAY once over lightly- A.

SAN FRANCISCO (NEA1- -Japanese Premier Shlgcru Yoshida nnd his peace treaty delegation return home to face a heavy round of negotiations with many of their 43 new allies. But even before that. Premier Yoshida must obtain ratification of the treaty by his own government. One of (he first major supplemental set of agreements which the Japs will have to negotiate are treaties of friendship, commerce and navigation with the United States the United Kingdom. Prance Netherlands an d the other principal trading Peter Edaon countries which cfore the war did big business with apan. The treaty gives Japan four In which to conclude such greements. Next, will come agreements with le Asian countries for reparations. Ahmet' Subardjo, speaking for ndonesia, declares that he recog- Japan cannot pay reparations ow. But he reserves the right for is government to collect later, hen Japanese economy has more ully recovered. Indonesia also wants Japanese iherles restricted. And, incidental- American tuna fisherman want apanese canned tuna fish kept out f the United States, or nt least ubjecl«d to an Import duty. Foreign Minister Carlos F*. Romu- of the Philippines, making the nly open reservations to the rcaty, demands that the kind and amount of reparations to be paid by Japan not be restricted In any way. Dann of A New Economic Era Premier Yoshida has assured Indonesia directly and all other countries Indirectly Japan will enter into all these new negotiations in good faith. What they amount to, tn substance, is that an entirely new economic era is about to begin in eastern Asia. Pre-war patterns of trade are to oe shifted entirely tinder the changed political conditions. From the American point of view, the mainland of China has been lost as a trading area and as a political ally. Japan has been, regained as an ally. In balancing this shift of alliances, case can be made that whereas China was a liability that would always have to be supported, Japan can be made into an asset that will pay its own way and contribute to free world security. In other words, swapping China for Japan may prove' to be a net gain for the United States. Premier Yoshlda declares that the amount of pre-war trade between Japan and China, and its value to Japan has been exaggerated. This is a little hard to. believe tn view of Japan's war effort to conquer China. Nevertheless, if Japan now feels tVml it can survive and prosper without China, well and good. But (o do this, Japan may have to shift more of her tradte to the Philippines, Indonesia and the southeast Asian countries. General Romulo seems to look on Philippine* as manufactured good: One of: the best preventives of thi development may rest with th Philippine government and the Fil plno people themselves. It Involve .heir going to work u the Japan ese people have gone to work, an their own wit and resourcefu ness becoming a more self-sufficien nation. Filipino* Must Get to Work If the Filipinos think they < get by forever on subsidies from th United States or reparations fro! Japan, they are in for a rut awakening. The United States h put nearly (2 billion worth of pos war aid into the Philippines. Muc of this aid was squandered. Wtv the Philippine President visited tr- United States la*t year, he had be told In pretty blunt languai that he was headed for trouble ui less his government reformed I fiscal policies. The amount of war damage Ii flicted on the Philippines has bee estimated H high ELS $3 billio U. S. aid has accounted for on a quarter 1 of that But if the Philippine government expects to collect the balance from Japan and live off of that country instead of by its own industry, it can have only n short term recov ery, -The same thing'is true of Indonesia. It Is an infant nation. It needs and should receive all the help possible. But there is no permanent prosperity ahead for it if it relies too much on a reparations dole. The same would be true of Burma or any of the new states of Indo The DOCTOR SAYS By EDWIN P. JORDAN', M.D. Written for NEA Service "My husband has acne over the pper part of his body en back and icst. What Is the cause of this and n acne be cured? should he take blood tonic?" So writes Mrs, G. Acne is considered to be a skin isease and largely confine'd to oys and girls of teen ages though Ider people, as in the case cf Mrs i.'s husband, are sometimes af- Icted. Now the exact cavise of acne still unknown. The pimples do contain one or tore kinds of germs, but the "ripe 1 •hite head or pimple consists of uxture of pus, germs, skin oil, anc estroyed tissue cells. The pimples ppear most commonly on the face eck, upper part of the chest am houlders, and are comparativel; ire on other parts of the body. The treatment of acne is admit edly not entirely satisfactory. Nev irtheless many cases can be help :d and many can be completel cured. Local treatment of the ski can often be extremely helpfu Just what preparation should put on, however, should be left he judgment of the doctor i charge, partly because what help one person may not help anothe and may indeed be harmful. Attention to the general healt equally important. It is almos always true that excessive eatin of sweets or starches will make acne condition worse. Many of those who havt acn notice that the condition is muc better in the summer when their skin is exposed to sunlight, fly a combination of appropriate local and general measures a person with acne can be helped a great deal in most cases. AFFECTS PERSONALITY On e of the things about ac ne which should always be mentioned if pimples appear on the face is the effect of the* disease on the personality of the youngster. Acne frequently comes when a youngster is in the middle teens and,'extremely sensitive to social contacts. I have talked with some adults about this and seme of them have told me that the disease gave them a permanent inferiority complex. It should be Is generally a and will disappear after awhile.
