Another Year for the USO Most Americans, including pai- haps several million veterans, may have pretty much forgotten the USO and its camp shows. But lhc wartime entertainers are still going strong, neiu- ly two years since the war ended. And to the almost 20,000,000 who saw theft? perforsiances last year their job probably seems as important as ever- There are now 30 USO units ovei- - seas—28 in the Pacific area and two in ^Alaska—to who are safe from bullets but not from borecicm. There are 22 companies in this country performing at 193 veterans' hospitals. . .. The overseas circuit includes Japan, Korea, China, the Ryukyus, lh'« Philippines, Guam, Tinian, Kwajalein,. the Johnson Islands. Playing that circuit can't be the most comfortable or glamorous trotiping in the world, so we , think the USO boys and girls deserve a cheer as another theatrical season rolls by and the good work goes OIK ^ Logic in Contradictions The official Soviet estimate of the Paris conference and the Marshall plan, as published by the Tass>ne\vs agency, is a good example of the surface contradictions in Russia's foreign policy and political philosophy. Eussia wanted no co-ordinated economic planning by European countries in connection with American aid. Russia argued against "interference.." Each country, in the Soviet view, shouM to^al up its own needs and P .p- Ply for American aid— a pica for a handout rather tiian a plan for recovery. • An over-all program would have upset plans already under way, according to Moscow. Just how the sick countries of Europe could recover in economic isolation Russia does not explain. But that is obviously what she wants. Russia also wanted to divide re- 'T? a - v . iclor -«"d- vanquished The principal wartime Allies should be taken cav c of first, then the lesser Allies, and finally at aonlc un -' determined date, Germany.

(ARK.V COURIER NEWS Yet all this may be added ui> to a logical total- The basic Soviet intention seems to be to build up Russia for the present. It has swallowed up enough of its neighbors for immediate nourishment. It h'as 'German slave labor-and German skilled labor and German ,food. It lias stripped German factories. So Russia's immediate recovery Bleeds may be taken care of. If thn European countries remain divided and gfoy< weaker as Russia grows strunger, that/will probably be al) right with the Soviet government. They will be rcjidy for .one-by-one picking, as were Yugoslavia, then Poland, then Ihuigaria, then Bulgaria. • - But the Marshall plan threatens an interruption. It is not a plan to stop cpimiiunism-iii a cri.sis, like the Truman Doctrine, but a plan to stop chaos arising from economic disruption, it is not a move against Russia. VIEWS OF OTHERS Why Russia Fears The Marshall Plan Success at Paris would have been a momentous surprise. The failure there, though hardly ft surprise, is momentous. The general expectation of disagreement between Britain ;>nd France on the one- hand and Russia on the other docs' strangely little to cushion lhc imp.-.ct' of, Mr. Molotov's "No!" on the world's wearying hope. The problems confronting the Three-Power discussions of the Marshall Plan were complex. But Messrs. Bcvln, Bidault, and Molotov did not lose each other in a labyrinth. The Paris meittlng foundered on, one big, simple, elemental misconception. That misconception colored—no, dictated—everything Mr. Mololov said. • And from what ho said It is clear that the Kremlin Is as yet incapable of understanding the motivation of the Marshall Plan. Moscow con analyze it only lu terms of control. Mr. Molotov's -words showed again and again that the Marshall program, and the Paris meeting in which Russian participation was sougUr,, appeared to Russian leadership only as step.-; In a contest—an American-Russian contest—Io>- leadership of Europe. We need not press Hie point farther to find sufficient reason for failure at Paris. : Successful operation of the Marshall Plan on a continent-wide basis would carry the evidence ' of American economic power aiul the abundant fruitage of American free enterprise ; decp< Into the Russian orbit. It would not he possible for the Russians to obscure tho source of this peacetime Lend-Lcase, as they did with much wartime Lend-Lcase. Nor wnuld it be possible for them lo match the quantity, much less the quality, of American aid to Europe. For a while It might seem to Europeans even that there were not really two comparatively great Powers In the world, after nil. Everything that Mr. Molotov said at. Paris underscored the Russian fear that the United States would use its economic power to establish political control of EuroiX;. The diplomatic tlvmking b««;k of that view Is loo orthodox for application to such a newcomer to the foretront of world affairs as the United Stales. •. If Mr. Molotov knew America belter lie might, be able to convince the other members of the Politburo that the political climate or tho United Steles would not permit the Slate Department to develop any plan for political domination of Europe. The Marshall Plan can be "sold" to the American people only as a plan for >jo-opcra- tion in the rehabilitation of Europe and the stabilizing of world trade and political life. It will be sustained only as the Trulls of the plan Increase the prospect Hint Europe will in a reasonable time be able to stand alone without American aid. That is how the Marshall plan vrlli lie carried forward, even wilhout Russian participation. If Mr. Molotov could have responded lo M. Bidault's tactful efforts to distinguish between Die "decisive role' 1 America can play Ti>d the notion of a "dominant role" which obsessed Mr. Molotov, Paris could have pointed the way to One World. —CHRISTIAN MONITOR.

J ' H ! s u '° lll "'' s stretched from or Internal disease, skin may be come generally re d or there may be patches of redness sometimes with raised edges in regular or irregular patterns. If the skin redness Is due to an external Irritant, condition usually is limited t« that part of the body which is not covered by clothes. Sunlight, heat, chemicals, plant poisons, insect bites arc the usual causes. When redness stems from internal causes, it may b c Die result of eating a food which is irritalinK (allergy), talcing or drugs, or an internal disease. A special variety of red skin disease is called erythema multi- forme. Condition is most common In thc spring mid fall and Its appearance occurs on thc back of the neck, checks, arms, legs and backs of hands and feet. Skin is bright red in spots while In oilier places lh c condition ro- ubles hives or pimples. Blisters may form and burning and ilcliins are felt. The mouth mny be affected with a similar eruption. As no two patients with erythema multiforme ever show the same cind of eruption, it j s usually ne- :essary to consult a physician for a diagnosis. Parents ill with erythema mul- •iforme may have mild fever and a few aching pains. As a general rule the disease runs its course within a few days or from two to three weeks. But there is n tendency for it to recur every spring and fall unless the underlying condition is corrected. CAUSE VARIES Cause of erythema multiforme varies in different individuals. In some it results from a focus of infection within the body, while In others it seems to develop from eating certain foods Wet, changeable weather favors its appearance. Patients with erythema multi- forme should go to bed at the beginning of thc infection. As soon as they feel better they can lie up and about. Sedatives for aches and pains make Hie patient more comfortable. Local skin treatments consist of applyirfg simple dusting powder or sponging the affected areas with weak solutions of alcohol, taoric acid or soda.
