Only If Reds Honestly Seek Peace Can UN Be Universal Prim* Minister Nehru of India believes th« United Nations nhotilH be reorganized to give it "wider appeal and n firmer grasp of reality." "It w*« meant to be a universal or- IHiiMtion," he said, "H ia something I«M BOW." Certainly as cpnceive^j at San Frand»co the UN was intendM to be univer- ul. That it is not now is due entirely to the refusal of the Soviet Union to work honwtly for the fulfillment of the UN's obje«tiven of peace and justice. Nehru ia right when he declares the UN today less than universal. But he is wrong when he imagines anything can be done about it in a world that con- taini Russian Communism. " No world organization that this or any other imagination could invent would serve properly as a universal peace agency »o long as Russia" is irrevocably committed to the sabotage of genuine peace. The sincerity of all its members is an inescapable fundamental in any international organization. And the Kremlin ii not sincere. Without the honest devotion of all parties, how then could the UN be made to function better on a universal level? Nehru does not face that issue. He implies that the UN has become a sound- ^ing board for the West; it's obvious, too, he is thinking of its refusal to-admit Red China. But how could the UN behave otherwise—given the unchanging Soviet attitude? To "widen the appeal" of the UN under existing conditions couhl only mean to make major concessions to the Russian view point. But every move Moscow has made since the Cold War began makes it evident that such concessions would not be taken as a prelude to a real understanding. They would be sci/.ed upon for Communism's advantage, and ; they would be followed by the new demands for other concessions. Russia did not .join tlie UN out of devotion to peace. H joined because it saw in such membership a capital opportunity to propagandize and to impede the free world's earnest endeavors toward a more orderly existence. To the Kremiin, the UN is merely one more front iu a many-sided campaign against free men. Nehru beys the question when he assumes the UN can be successfully reorganized with a wrecker in its midst. It is he, not the UN, who needs a firmer grasp on reality. The United Nations may become * truly universal body when circumstances of increased Western strength force Russia to abandon or drastically modify its plans for of the globe. Until that time, it can only be as un.ivnr.sal as those nation* which aincerly seek peace. In the interval, the t*«k of the peace- loving countries'is to make th« UN »erv« their collective purpose «i effectively ai possible under handicap. What is important at this stage U not a sterile insistence upon a universality that spells inaction, but positive, coordinated measures for peace by those who believe in it. The UN was created to help preserve the peace, not to bring all the nations of the earth together in endless discussion signifying nothing. Something the Tax Law Writers Didn't Anticipate Thky-four persons in Georgia are dead from having imbided in a concoction of well water and denatured alcohol. The mixture was not by-product of any individual's thirst. It was brewed by bootleggers and sold as bona fide whiskey. The 32 Negro and two while customers paid with their lives. There is no intelligence in attempting to apply any prohibition arguments to this matter. The issue is far different. This would have happened during a "dry" period and not envinced as much surprise or interest, for bootlegging is a known handmaiden of prohibition. But what inspires bootleggers to operate when liquor may be obtained legally and what provokes people to purchase these illicit concoctions? The American penchant for bargain-hunting is not to he overlooked. The price of legal liquor has been raised steadily, not by the manufacturers but by Congress and many state legislatures. Cigarettes and liquor have been favorite tax targets on the theory that they Hie luxuries and persons who can afford to indulge in them can well afford the extra cost. There appears ,to be a limit to everything, however, including the amount a. person will pay for any given item before turning to a cheaper substitute. Until such lime as human nature can be legislated, this will happen. Already liquor taxation seems to have reached the point of distinctly diminishing returns.

He can know some men »ho want to illp him some money, but won't oiler it to him In open graft. So lie permits them to lay bets for him and, alter the race ts won, tell him the name of the winning horse he bet on. A man who plays cards and horvei «nrl wins consistently, yet says he does 'it honestly, probably is lying. Let us say quickly thai we have faith In thf.

Smut from a few rascal! hai not rubbed off on the reputations ot ihe honest men who work (or the dep»rtmellt and honorably serve the people.

For the gu»rintee of their adulU aurt the protection of our purses, we suggest that a strong man be put in charge of "11 agents. No widespread tccusation of graft has talnleil the FBI.

No doubt, it will be accompanied as usual by new announcements of the best cure yet. At any rate, it is a sure bet that millions and millions of dollars will be spent for drugs, vitamins, nose- dj-ops, and the like, which may or may not have any effect on the cold. There Is no sure way of Awarding ofr a cold in modern society. Most colds develop after contact .with someone who already has one'and since It Is impossible-to ^make hermits ol ourselves, there are only a, few things which can be done to lessen the risk of catching the common cold. The most important is to avoid exposure to those who already have this type of infection—especially when a cold Is Just starting. Public places, such as street cars and moving-picture theaters, almost always have one or two people in them who are coming down with or recovering from a cold. If we cnn keep out of these places when colds are frequent there would almost certainly be fewer attacks. But the person who has a cold could help most by not exposing others . Although most colds seem to be definitely spread by contact, a word must be said about the additional the first paragraph of this dispatch and others they may encounter later °r . . sentative In Europe.
