J ia the voice of the Republicans' leading | foreign affairs spokesman. Not only his j party but the whole country is the loser. t 1 Presumably ill health will compel ^ Vandenberg to keep to the sidelines most i of the time from now until his term ex- j; pires in 1952. He does not intend to run ^ again. _ . * > There's no doubt Vandenberg is the * man who made the bi-partisan foreign t policy a working formula in Congress. K That service has been of inestimable I ' value to the nation at a time in history ,i when the United States needed to show f a united front to a world plagued by I communism. > Vandenberg was uniquely litled for f this role. He dedicated himself in re- i cent years almost entirely to foreign •• issues. As a specialist he gained stature . in the eyes of both parties. His remarks * . took on added weight because he was' I not constantly embroiled in the daily |* verbal brawling on domestic questions. . Strangely, too, his influence seemed the greater because he was an isolation; ist before he was an internationalist. His colleagues felt in him something of : the fervor of the convert. His dramatic shift, made in response to the realities of atomic and guided missile warfare, ; was the real beginning of his leadership in the Senate; Within the Senate Republican group ;, there developed a sort of division of I labor, Vandenberg carrying the burden , in the foreign field and Senator Taft piloting domestic policy. ', Though many of his colleagues didn't go the whole way toward sharing his . internationalist views, the Michigan senator often was eloquent enough to persuade them to follow him on key mat. ters like the Marshall Plan and the foreign arms aid program. Up to now no other Senate Republican has showed similar power to com. mand the support of his party colleagues ij for a broadly internationalist foreign \ program. The internationalists in both 5 parties, who constitute an overwhelm| ing majority in the Senate, are regretful I that no one is yet rising to take Van| denberg's place. ' | Hopes had once been pinned on Sen. , .John Foster Dulles, veteran of many ! an international parley, but his defeat { in New York last fall dashed them. i Some talk of Senator Lodge of Mass? achusetts as a likely successor, but thus | far he has not made great strides to£ ward establishing himself as a foreign affair* leader. It will be unfortunate if strong new leadership does not emerge to fill the gap Vandenberg is leaving. For the United States has not yet won the cold war. It still has great need of presenting to Europe and the rest of the world a single, determined front. MONDAY, APRIL 8, 1950 Extended Socialism An "Irish Bloc" in the House of Representatives tried to saddle the EGA bill with a stipulation that Britain shall be cut off without a farthing in American aid as long as Ireland remains partitioned. It's all well and good for the representatives who got their jobs via voters of Irish descent or inclination to look out for their constitutients. However, tying such strings onto EGA aid bills smacks of an attempt to dictate something other than use of this money. When one nation doles out money to.another, it can expect the right to direct its use. But it shouldn't expect to be able to dictate that nation's foreign or domestic policies. That's too much like international socialism. Views of Others Peron and His Railroads Argentina dictator Peron, who two years ago took over the country's railroads (owned by British interests), has reorganized the nationalized 1 system and provided that .workers shall receive up to 25 per cent of the profits. The profit-sharing program will to Into effect when and if there are profits to share. But "necessary reserves" must be accumulated. In the first days of government ownership profits were high, although difficulties were encountered in changing over from private to public ownership, but President Peron's economic advisor, who made the last public statement on railroad finances, said in August, 19«, that the losses amounted to 1,800.000 pesos a day. All fares have been increased, and half-tare tickets have been abolished. —ARKANSAS GAZETTE Two Views of FEPC The trouble with FEPC, as Thurgood Marshall, chief attorney for the National Association lor the Advancement of Colored People, explains • It, is that there would be small likelihood of his temperate ideas becoming the interpretation of the law. The operation of the Wagner act proved .that. There was nolhingMn: the Wagner act to require employment of a union man. But in the enforcement of the Wagner act, it became almost impossible to hire anyone else. : Understandably NAACP wants to wipe discrimination out of the habits of everybody. But to get the effect, they would in result' write discrimination into the laws. IJ it Is dlscriminationjp refuse to hire'a black man, it Is also force hiring him. Even under the Marshall interpretation, the nondiscriminatory law would have that ellect. NAACP would accomplish much If It succeeded in abolishing Jim Crow laws and segregation lawa. Legislation can be wiped oft the books, but personal prejudices, likes and dislikes, are not subject lo fiat. ... The NAACP is wrong, Mr. Truman is wrong, In striving to pass any law that will make private industry hire or fire agalnt its will. Every employer should be as'free to choose the mm he hires as the worker to choose the Job he seeks. The Negro, handicapped unquestionably by tht restrictions of racial prejudice, wants to mow upward In white-operated enterprise. Surely ttw real solution for his problem Is Negro business, Negro enterprise, in which,there could be no bar to his advancement. Must his opportunity be created for him by the white race? —DALLAS MORNING NEWS So They Say We are (God's) creatures and we are entitled to receive from each other the love He bade us give.—New York Representative Donald OToole on FEPC. * • * * We must strike 2 reasonable balance In our (military) preparation. A small but efficient striking force backed by large well trained reservists and civilian units could provide the best possible security at reasonable cost.—Assistant Secretary ot the Army Carl R. Bcndetscn. * * * * The Russians' fifth columnists and espionage units arc much more powerful than anything Hitler ever had.—James Gitlow, founder of U. S. Communist Party. * * * Women no longer can escape their responsibilities. Modern war doesn't differentiate bctwten the sexes.—MaJ.-Gcn. Lewis Hcrshey, director of Selective service, on drafting of women. » » » We must remember that, as long as the cap- ilalisl world exists, there will be a threat ol Imperialist attack on the USSR.—Vice Premier I*. zar M.

It was first proposed as "Point TV" of his inaugural message In January 1949 Now gradually, Point IV Is Raining recognition as one of the best answers available to the riddle of how to promote world peace and counter Russian .^ : . Communist propaganda among the more backward peoples The battle to get Point TV enabling legislation before Congress has been long and bitter. It has been necessary to reconcile the conflicting ; views ot the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and Americans for Democratic Action, ofRep. Christian A. Herter Of Massachu- Peter Edaon setts, Jacob K. Javlts of New York, and Helen Gahagan Douflas of California. ' The final bill Introduced by Rouse Foreign Affairs Committee John Kee of West Virginia represents a compromise. It is called "An Act for International Development." Or for short, the "AID" hill. If. passed, it will authorize the President to make contributions for technical assistance to underdeveloped countries through the United Nations, the World Health Organization, Food and Agriculture Organizations, the Organization of American States—successor tot he Pan- American Union—or other International bodies. . Slitr. Per Cent Would Be In ' Direct Aid Agencies of the U.S. government like Department of Agriculture Public Health Service or Bureau of Reclamation would be authorized to furnish assistance on request from these international organizations, after approval by the President. It is expected that about 40 per cent of the Point TV program will be In this form of assistance through international organizations. The other 60 per cent would be direct aid, furnished to the underdeveloped / country by the United States, after the signing of a bilateral agreement between the two counrties. If the assistance could not be furnished by government employes, the President would be authorized to make contracts with any person or corporation to do the actual work These private contracts could run for not over three years. They would have' to be limited by fimds ap proprlated by Congress for thl: purpose. For first-year operations of al Point IV programs. 145.000,000 ho. been requested. , This assistance would be made available only nn request of a foreign governmenl The country receiving the aid woul( have to agree to'pay a fair share o the cost.

Jordan, M. D. • Written tor NEA ferric* Pew things cause to much worry nd distress to growing youngsters s adolescent pimples or acne. Tnls kin disease comes at a time when wys and girls are terribly sensitive bout their personal appearance. Friends, particularly those of the pposlte sex, are. becoming more nd more Important and the pres- nee of pimples adds to the dlffi- ulty of growing from childhood nto adult life. Only a small proportion of those filleted with acne develop permanent scarring but the rear is tlwtya iresent. Not only I* there the usually unnecessary fear of permanent scarring of the face, but the >lmples themselves produce an excessive shyness and self-consciousness. Some develop a permanent In- "eriorlly complex u a result of icne. Acne prefers the face, neck, upper part of the chest and shoulders. The pimple usually starts as a reddish lump which U slightly tender a toitch. It often develops Into a 'whit* -head," : which actually consists of a mixture of pus, germs, skin oil, and destroyed tissue cells. The pimple may be near the sur:ace of the skin or quite deep. In the milder cases, the pimple* are spaced rather widely apart and are near the surface. In more severe cases they are closer together, break out more frequently and burrow deper Into the skin. When a white head forms the top of the pustule finally breaks open, the pus escapes, a crust form* arid healing :akes place. If the pustule has been arge and deep a permanent «ar may be left, though this is fortunately the exception. Infection skrne almost certainly does not explain the development of acne. Because acne is most common and usually most severe during the period of adolescence in some relation to the changes In the both boys and girls, it probably has glands and hormones which take place,at that time. Diet almost certainly plays a part. Many, if not most, adolescents , have a craving for sweets and sweets almost always make acne worse.

Hughes and Estes Lunsford were re-elected by scant margins. Tom W, Jackson alderman, and Jack Finley Robinson, city treasurer were chosen without opposition. Mr. and Mrs. L. E. Tull left today for their new home In Trenton Tenn., after having lived here th( past two years. Marlyn Crawford, who was seven years old Saturday, had By DeWIU MaeKenii* AP Fwelgn Affairs Analyst ' ~ It was non less than the adjutant general at British general headquarters in France who unfolded, this dram* of World W«r I to me. The story grew out of the rigid, military regulation that no member of the fighting forces could ,J visited'by his wife In Ihe theatre. This decree was'absoli and disobedience meant court martial. The need of such > law Is obvious, of course It was tough, and especially to for the wife. It wu her fate to «Uy at home and worry about the safety of her man, where- he knew that his woman was relatively safe, still It would have been insane to load a fighting front up with the wives ot combat troops. ' ' The regulations, however, left an opening for a strange deviation While i man couldn't havs his own wife with him In th« war theatre, there wasn't anything to stop him from having a girl friend when he was'off duty In a quiet area. Our story hinges on this conflict of ideas. It Involves i young English officer, whom we shall designate merely as Caplaln Bob (ths nickname by which he was affectionately known to hti host of friends), and his lovely wife. Tht couple occupied a firm place in London society. Now Captain Bob and his lady were very much in love arid found the separation hard to bear. So it perhaps wasn't surprising lhat finally Mrs. Bob, in her innocenc* about the rules of *ar, should finally get what she. 'bought was the wonderful idea of miking a surprise visit to Her man: Through one of th* relief or>H- txations she wangled a trip to Aliens on the Somme, where her husband was stationed. And in du« course she arrived at that exceedingly important base. Well, Captain Bob was flabbergasted—but he was * chip in lov* and he was a good sport. Hi hurried to give his wife a lover's welcome, with never a word about a violation of regulation which was heading him straight for a court martial. It was » second honeymoon which lasted for several days. Then h* started Mrs. Bob back la London and faced the music. He had • wealth of friends, and many In high places—but friendship didn't count. The captain was court rnsrtlaled, found guilty and sentenced to be cashiered—*, terrible stigma to b« attached to a, proud name.
