Don't Stifle Japanese Trade Reports from the Far East have it that General MacArthur is not only against Japan trading with Red China but opposes integrating Japan into a Southeast, Asia policy. Details on Uiis are lacking. But if this surface account is accurate, it reflects a view of doubtful wisdom. Japan is equipped as an industrial nation. Her natural outlets are the Asiatic countries which have raw materials and foodstuffs to trade for the products of industry. If Communist China is to be barred as a market, what is left but the southeastern nations? Right now (here seems little hope in ' more distant outlets. If Japan can't find places to sell its output, its domestic problems will mount to serious levels. Unemployment already is rising and production falling. Since the war many observers have labeled Japan the one bright spot in the Far Bast for America. Unless we reexamine our policy there nnd help the conquered Japanese to achieve a solid economic footing, we may endanger this hopeful bridgehead in the chaotic Orient. 'Red Youth March on Berlin ' May Be Typical Soviet Trap We've had fresh assurances from Secretary of State Acheson that the ( weetern powers do not intend to be dislodged from Berlin by planned Commun- ; ist disturbances in the city late in May. The chief Red maneuver in the off; ing is a march of German youths from ; : the Soviet zone into western sectors of :' Berlin. ? Acheson told newsmen and western j Bat-ions could not divulge what steps ( they would take to counter the Russian*;' inspired demonstrations. But lie empha- j iized that the Allies would be very-firm \ in their resistance to whatever pres- ; «»res develop. > J The secretary did not indicate, however, that the West contemplates any 1 advance diplomatic moves to offset prob- £ abrt Russian plans to turn the occa- ;; niorv into a propaganda field day. If we t do nothing on this score, we may miss tke boat badly. "• Acheson's remarks, indeed, the whole tenor of our response to the proposed ; - youth march, suggest that we are viewing this Soviet tactic as.a serious effort •- - to end western control over Berlin. The Russians are hardly eimple tnough to believe a mass at German youths, no matter how sizable the 'force, will take over a large city area stoutly defended by Allied guns and tanks. The young German Reds are not likely to have much weight of metal to throw against the defenders. It seems much more probable that the Soviet Union is trying to put the West in a position where its soldiers will have to shoot down and perhaps kill dozens or even hundreds of German youths in the streets of Berlin. The propaganda value of such an . event is unquestionably rated high in Moscow, as well it should be. The legal and moral rightness of the Allies' position woud not look impressive when set beside a bloody slaughter of young Germans. The youth march has all the earmarks of a typical Communist trick. It isn't enough for us to be ready to stand off thia "threat" to our control of Berlin. We must act to deflate the propaganda value of the march before it happens. We should formally notify the Russian government that the proposed demonstration would clearly violate four- power agreements affecting control of the western sectors, and that the necessary resistance to such violation could only result in needless bloodshed. That message should urge that the march be called off in the interest of preserving order and saving human life. And the whole world should know what we say. Furthermore, the matter should be ; handed to the United Nations Security Council as a potential threat to the peace. For, despite its recont impotence, the UN is stitl a world forum in which nations acting in a righteous uuise c*n Views of Others Is Texas Going Back to Coal? There is a bit of highly significant prophecy In the dispatch in The News Thursday telling of the' reopening of an old coal mine In Palo Pinto County. Said the operator: "I've had manufacturers around here tell me that the pipeline companies arc outbidding local consumers on natural gas. The gas is being shipped out of Texas In such quantities and at such bid prices that a lot of ordinary Texas gas users can't compete." In all the controversy over the effect ot Ihe building of big gas pipelines out of Texas, tht Issue of exhaustion has been raised. Some have contended that Texas natural gas resources would be exhausted in a lew years, other authorities have argued that the supply would last for many years. Overlooked has heen the very Important fact that the industrial development of Texas will be very profoundly. affected by the rising price of gas long before there is anything like a complete exhaustion of the supply. If one will go over the list of the big Industries that have been built In Texas in recent years, one will find that in about three fourths of these enterprise)! that Texas' cheap natural gas was the ruling factor. Natural gas has been the greatest Incentive to industrial development that Texas has ever had. U Is the only big supply of Industrial fuel In sight at present. Texas coal and lignite re- jwurccs can not conipclc as Industrial fuels with the coal resources of the Appalachian-Ohio Valley area. Yet we are shipping our gas in prodigious quantities to this area, although It will mean that we will have only a relatively ft* years or Industrial gas supply ns against that region's 2,000-ycar supply of coal. It is said that nothing can be done lo stop the building of pipelines. There Is a constitutional provision against the restriction of interstate trade. Yet in those states where the oil and gas regulatory bodies have hccn active in opposition, pipeline construction has been slowed down. The Texas Legislature failed even to act favorably on a resolution instructing the state Rniiroad Commission to become more--active in Us opposition before the Federal Power Commission. There is prophecy In the Palo Pinto County miner's words. Tcxans will conic to realize this whan it is too late. —DALLAS MORNING NEWS So They Say Just Can't Please Everybody!

The American Medical Association persuaded some ot the insurance companies to mall out A.M.A. literature against health insurance. In return, A.M.A. supported the in- smance companies* opposition to government protection against permanent disability, although In 1947 A.M.A. had supported disability insurance for chronic illness.

By rVH'itt MacKenzIe AP Foreign Affairs Analyst The host of bejeweled Indian princes, who less than two years ago ruled their humble subjects with the power of life and death, are rapidly moving towards oblivion which destiny decreed. \Vhen the Indian peninsula was divided into the two independent nations oi In-ila and Pakistan, here were more than 600 of UiJU Arabian nights potentates whUfe wealth was so great that most of hem couldn't even estimate it. Now lost of their states have been ab- 01 bed, In whole or in part, by 'akistan and India (largely the atter), and the princes have been. "iven fixed incomes In place of the axes they used to exact, No More J'rinccs A few of the biggest states con- Inue to exist, as constitutional principalities, but their rulers are answerable either to the Indian or Pakistan government. The rest of he states have been absorbed outright. There are no longer any absolute princes. One of the constitutional prin- :ipalitics is the great state of Hy- jerabad, which is presided over by that amazing personality, the Nizam. His exaulted y highness, who speaks with the tongue of the S'ew Delhi government, is reputed X) be the world's, richest man. The value of his Jewelry alone has been estimated unofficially a t $1,500,000,000, and his hoard of money and other valuables long has been the basis of a favorite guessing game in India. An AP disptach reports that the Nizam himself has been checking his cash on hand and its equivalent in Jewels, One Bombay jeweler got dizzy at the sight of the jewels, and another offered the equivalent of J5.250 for & chance just to look at the gems. ^ft Nizam Is Frugal V| ' The Nizam is a frugal sort* In many ways.

At the present time it is safe to .say that the adrenal glands, their functions and the hormones which they secrete are being subjected to more intensive investigation than any other part of the human body of equal .size. ent disability claims might wreck the whole system. Also, there is a fear that If there were much unemployment, there mighi be considerable malingering —faking of illne-ss in order to receive benefits.

He surrendered most of his actual authority to New Delhi, Theretason the Indian and Pakistan governments have permitted many ofjnodified dynasties to carry on IK that some of the subject peoples have a strong sentiment for their rulers.
