WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER e, 1950 The Notion Today: The Dark Days — (ARK.V COURIER [/ fN- oi i i ~i i nonman ieei Korean Disaster Should Shake Staff for Ford U.S.Out of Period of Complacency *~ £• By JAMES MAKLOW ^WASHINGTON', Dec. 6. W—On •"Way Nov. 24, Qen. Douglas MacArthur ordered, a "general assault" by (he United Nations forces in Korea. He said he expected (he assault to end the war, If It was successful But it wasn't successful. No matter who's to blame, this assault- was undertaken without xnowing how many Chinese troops were massed and waiting. They struck back, about 1,000,000 of them against 200,000 U. N. troops. The Chinese now are chasing the Americans and other' U. N. troops in a catastrophic rout down through Korea. No one can predict what they'll do. They may drive the U. N. troops into the sea 'and off the continent of Asia. Tliis is the worst disaster that lias overtaken the United States since the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor Dec. 7, 1941, nine yean ago tomorrow. The size of the disaster is reflected in the mood of the people you meet around Washington-, darkly Bloomy, sometimes bewildered. ^The feeling seems to be: -could •lis happen to us?" It's happened. If the disaster serves no other good. at least it may do this much: Shake Americans out of their complacency. For rive years since World War II they've watched communism overrun eastern Europe most of Asia. "They Were Complacent" By they is meant practically everyone: government officials, members of Congress, and the people at large. They talked of life as usual, business us usual,- cutting taxes, which meant cutting defense. They seemed unable to understand what should have been clear: that the Communists are In earnest and are on the march. Now at last, in this dark time they may understand that when survival is the problem, money is secondary, since without survival money has no meaning. The mistake made in Korea—in attacking without really knowing what was being attacked, the massed Chinese—i s no greater than the mistake made here at home for live years in not being prepared. Allies Are Divided Already there seems to be some divisions among the Western Allies. The Europeans, closest to Russia, don't want this country or themselves involved in a full war with China, since that would leave them an easier pushover for Russia, which has a vast land army to Europe. •fjtyWhether or not we'havel'p'jump into the sea and abandon Korea this country Is going into a great arms program. If the Russians are polite enough to wait, that program may take two years or more before our Western Allies feel they can stand off Russian attack. But will Russia sit back and wait until the west has time to create a great army, which doesn't exist .Mrs. Katheriiie McCubbins, 4463 .Louisville Ave., Louisville. Ky., says ^he feels terribly sorry and wants {||fo extend lots of sympathy to thousands of folks all over the country bothered with vague aches and pains due to a deficiency of Vitamins'BI B2, Niacin and Iron. Mrs. McCubbins says she knows how they feel because it wasn't too long ago that Mrs. McCubbins was just beside herself in knowing what to do about such misery Ho.wever, Mrs. McCubbins found out she had a deficiency of Vitamins Bl, B2, Niacin, and Iron and started taking HADACOL Here is Mrs. McCubbins' own statement: "My nerves were so bad the least little thing mwM completely upset me.

But strict controls will be lecessary if this country is going in a real war-footing. So, to survive, this country which dislikes government controls so much will have to submit to them. That seems certain now, -with liv- 'ig-costs going up, for if they go p unchecked the country will be wrecked anyway. But If this country has to be- ome a military slate, with wide controls, and stays that way for •ears, there is the. simple question ihead: w;ll the economy ever get back to what it has-been?
