Germany's Role in Defense Another Defeat for Reds Coming on the heels of success at San.Francisco, the Big Three's progress at Washington on issues affecting Germany is almost too grood to be true. Top American, British and French officials agreed without reservation that Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower should be authorized to create a unified European army, including German forces. This in essence is the French plan, but until now it had been resisted by both Britain and the United States. When Eisenhower himself endorsed the proposal, the latter two countries underwent a change of heart. The agreement clears the way for greater speed in the organization of effective European defense. How to handle the problem of Germany rearmament had continuously plagued Western relations. It should not be forgotten, however, - that the Germans have minds of their own. Though the Bonn government is thoroughly committed to the West, there hag been no enthusiasm for rearmament in Western Germany up to now. The chief reasons have been fear of being trampled in a Russian offensive toward the Atlantic, and reluctance to bear arms until they have political equal- it}-. Fully aware of this obstacle, the Big Three foreign ministers also acted at Washington to remove it by preparing to give Bonn as nearly an independent status as is possible for a divided nation riving under direct Russian threat. The diplomats will offer the Germans not a peace treaty but a "peace contract" which will closely resemble it. Under this arrangement, the Allied occupation would be officially ended and Western forces would become "defense troops" aiding the Germans. Bonn would have a high decree of control over German affairs, except where seizure by internal or external anti-democratic forces threatened. The price for this contract would be German participation in the European defense army. The price for this contract would be German participation in the European defense army. If this peace contract is engineered as planned, and accepted by Bonn on Allied terms, Germany will be pulled into the Western orbit almost as completely as Japan. Obviously ,this is a goal eminently desired by the West. By the same token, it is a condition the Soviet Union must hope lo prevent. Russian foreign policy for six years has been pointed toward tht winning ol Japan and Germ»ny. Wh»t will Moscow do If both elip irretrievably from Communist grasp? On the answer to that question could hinge the Issut of peace or war In th« next 12 month*. FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 1951 Shocking Defense Of a Vicious Fraud Everyone is well aware that one of the highlights of last year's senatorial campaign in Maryland was the use of a composite photograph purporting to show-former Senator Tydings, the Democratic nominee, in conversation with Karl Browder, notorious Communist leader. No one can have any idea how big a part, if any, that picture had in enabling the present Senator John M. Butler, Republican, to defeat Tydings. But any fair-minded American, whatever his politics and whatever his feelings about Tydings, must certainly insist that no fraudulent photograph has any place in a free and honest American election. Thus it comes as a definite shock to hear Butler defend the use of the Tydings-Browder picture, especially since he musters the flimsy argument that the photograph "illustrated Tydings' attitude." In other words, a voter looking at the picture was supposed to understand that it did not really show the two men in conversation but indicated Tydings was "soft toward communism." Come, come, Senator Butler, how farfetched can you get? This defense of photographic fraud is no credit to "you or to American politics. Views of Others Would This Apply Also To Federal Government? Mayor Impellitterl has found a way to sav« the taxpayers of New York City {492,361 a year, not an insignificant sum even for the nation'! largest city. He has ,ordered the Immediate discontinuance of the use of 106 city-owned automobiles In departments and agencies under his jurisdiction. The automobiles had been assigned to scorei of'city officials for their exclusive use. Mayor finpellltteri found that the cost of operating the vehicles was not Justified In view of the purposei for which they were being used. There U In the step taken by Mayor Impelliltert perhaps » good txample for the United SUte* Government. A thorough survey of the use of automobiles which belong to the_Federal Government might show that thousahJCof them are being operated by Individuals who have little use for them. In most cases, ol course, automobiles of tht Federal Government are operated on legitimate business, but, observing the great number of them thst travel the streets of Atlanta, we can't help wondering If all of them are being operated In the Interests of the taxpayers. If Me*' York City can cut down on unnecessary transportation and thus save nearly half a million dollars « year, Is it not possible that the Federal Government might save millions of dollars annually by taking the same action? —ATLANTA JOURNAL How Much 'Austerity? A few days ago Defense Mobllizer Charles B. Wilson hit the headlines with \ht announcement that "the pinch Is here." Sunday he was In the headlines again with the assurance that lha pinch won't pinch too hard after all. We should remember that there are three principal factors in any inflationary trend. Two are tangible; on is intangible. The two tangibles are (1) the market demand for good* an against (2) the availability of goods to meet. Ihe demand. The Intangible Is public psychology; It can become a lerriflc force. There Is sometimes a tendency or* the part of government agencies to educate the public to the "right" attitude through their news releases. And It must be admitted that there Is sometimes a tendency on the part of the press to overplay announcements. One way to fight inflation Is lo maintain ob- Jrctlvely in our thlnxmg, talking and writing. Thai will take care of the public Hysteria that sometimes kites prices. H might be added that there is also a seldom mentioned way to attack the tangible factors mentioned above: We should work a little harder. —DALLAS MORNING NEWS A Coy Trick Invented by Democratic Presidents Peter ft/son's Washington Column — NA TO Members in Ottawa Worry About Reductions in American Aid once over tightly- By A.

II ha's been reported from out Washington way that during the Sunday School Lesson By WJLUAM E. GILROY, D.D. The Bible is for the whole world. !-ut how many "worlds" are in the Bible? Recently I searched through a concordance to find out how many times the word "world" is used in (he New Testament. I was truly amazed at the number of such passages to issue from inc little land o( Palestine, seemingly of minor importance among the great empires o'f the ancient world. Equally impressive Is the number of references to the world by Jesus, the man from a tiny village in the hills known, as Nazareth. In spite of an environment that would have stifled many, Jesus ;limpscd truths that were universal and from the very beginning delivered His message with a consciousness of the world about him. Let's take a look at the first example of his awareness of the world, ft began in that tempta- iion (Matthew 4: 8-u>, in which he saw the kingdoms of the world, with all the allurements of worldly power, divine, but in which He chose the not the human way. and last year and thus far this year a total of S8.400,000 has been blown by the government on advertising to make soldiering an Irresistibly attractive occupation, And as I recall that part of my youth spent wearing blue britches with built-in bowlegs and east-west :reases, I can agree that it will take » mess o( huckstering to paint a •osey picture of life In a foxhole or on the briney deep or in a belly '.urret. Most young lads are understandably reluctant to offer themselves as targets for a foe whose motives are not entirely clear beyond th» immediate urge to slay the nearest opponent. This holds true even in time's of formal and widespread warfare such as in the early '40's.

They are important, however, in that they'll prepare the ground for the NATO Council and military meetings, in Rome at the end of October. Also, they'll make a first report on the organization of defense production in the NATO countries. The Ottawa session will be the seventh -NATO Council meeting. The first was held in Washington in September Foreign Secretaries, Defense Secretaries and Treasury Secretaries for the United States, Canada and the 10 European countries will all b« there. The Deputy Foreign Secretaries In charge of NATO affairs Peter Edson be . the last meeting of the Council in Brussels last there. They have their headquarters In London, with Charles L. Spofford as American representative and chairman. Since NATO December, when General Eisenhower was named Commander-in- chief. the NATO organization has been considerably streamlined. Under the deputies there are a Defense Production Board CDPB) :nd a Finance Economic Board (FEE). William Herod, International General Electric president, .is 17. S. member and chairman of DPB. William L. Blatt. head of American SKF Industries. Is U. S. member and chairman of the FEB. Both these organizations will make their first reports to the Council. Sessions will be presided over by Paul Van zeeland of Belgium, the Council president. Eisenhower Remains In Europe General Eisenhower will not be at the Ottawa meeting, though he is expected to be In Rome. In Ottawa he will be represented by his chief of staff, Gen. Alfred M. Gruenther. The Joint Standing Group, which is really General Eisenhower's boss, will be at Ottawa In an advisory capacity only, since this is no't primarily a military meeting. On JSG are Gen. Omar Bradley, chari- man of the Joint chiefs of Staff of the u. S.. Gen. Paul Ely of France and Air Marshal Sir William Elliot of Britain. Adm. Gerauld Wright of the U.S. Navy serves a-i representative for General Bradley on this full-time planning group, which has its headquarters in Washington. All these officials and their staffs and assistants will be quartered in Ottawa's Chateau Laurier. For ail except the very top brass'and braid, they'll be quartered two to a room. This has led one staff member to suggest that all present See EDSO.V on page 10 set the fulfilment of His spiritual mission above all that .the world could possibly have given. The earthly Christ understood clearly and fully the meaning of that choice. I have been impressed with his many and persistent references to the world hating Him iJohn 7:7; 15:18; 17-14. etc.), and lhat hatred of Him by the world of His own time stands out strongly when we observe, and reflect upon. the hatred of the world for the Christ today. A worldly hatred of the Christ lies deep also in places where we might least suspect it.

The opponents can still defeat the contract, but they have to find the right defense instead of having it handed to them on the proverbial silver platter. At the second trick East must put up the king of diamonds. Do you know anybody who will make that defensive play? I'll agree that a great expert will occasionally come up with the right defense. But If this type of play Is made against him ten times month, he'll meekly play low six or seven times out of ten. (Eight or nine time.; would be closer to the truth, but I wouldn't want to be considered ungenerous.) Once East is persuaded to play i a low diamond at a second trick, the hand is home.

But what has amazed me is the number of these best known current stories in which there if. not on a single page the slightest evidence that either the authors or their characters, in these books produced in a "Christian." land had either the knowledge of Christ or the merest interest in the fact that Jesus, the great Teacher eve lived.

The expending of considerablt public coin for baiting the recruiting hook has been defended In peculiar manner. A Col. W. G. Crawford recently told i Senate appropriations subcommittee that an enlistee is a better "bargain" and probably will be. a better soldier than a draftee. The "bargain" li that an enlistee commits himself for three or four years while a draftee Is on the hook for only two, and a* to which Is better the colonel is firing blanks. One might submit that a soldier who enters the service under his own power, may be a more willing sort than one who was booted Into uniform by Selective Service. This holds a minimum of water however, as only a few enlist with career Intention while. the bulk sign up with the hot breath of their draft boards on their necks.
