Red Proposals Aim at HP In Themselves-Arid That's Al I Two new Russian proposals, one on ; Berlin and one on the long-delayed Austrian peace treaty, show very neatly how hard it is to negotiate seriously with the Soviet Union. On Austria, Moscow wants any pact to be preceded by Allied troop withdrawal from Trieste, former Italian port .- slated to he a free territory. This is demanded as evidence of good faith that "under one pretext or another Austria shall not also be transformed into an Ang-Io-American war base. Never before, in all the years an Austrian treaty has been hanging fire, has Russia dragged Trieste into t. Now it : suddenly becomes a critical point on which the whole issue pivots. As for Berlin, the Soviet Union has accepted the idea of city-wide elections but has laid down seven specific conditions which must be met before the balloting can begin. It isn't necessary to examine the full list. The Russians want all occupying powers to remove their forces from Berlin. They call for abolition of the so-called occupation statute under which the western nations govern their control zones of the city. They ask that democratic organizations be given freedom of activity in those zones. The tricks in these proposals are pretty obvious. If Russian troops left Berlin, they'd still be on the outskirts of the city in the Soviet-controlled eastern portion of Germany. But withdrawing Allied soldiers would have to pull back more than 100 miles to the main western area of the country. Freedom for "democratic" groups in all Berlin means license to Russian-inspired Communist activities aimed at bringing the city completely under Moscow's domination. Like the Austrian suggestion, these conditions are all designed to weaken or eliminate western control of critical European sectors. What the Russians couldn't accomplish by the Berlin blockade they now would seek to gain by other means. It's not likely the Russians expect us to take theese proposals to heart. They're following their usual formula of asking, as a veery minimum, sacrifices they know the West can't afford to make. The newest moves are just further threads in the skein of propaganda by which Moscow eventually hopes to weave strong pro-Communist support in Germany—against the day when Russia's chances of taking over might be stronger. They know the Germans want foreign troops out of Berlin and ultimately off all their soil. In the case of Austria, the Soviet leaders apparently have no real desire to negotiate a treaty, since that would •omjwl them to remove th«lr own troops from adjoining Hungary and then Rumania. When you don't want to do /something, it isn't hard to find excuses for inaction. That is, if you're a Russian. Long Way to Go, Joe From Wisconsin it's being said that Senator McCarthy, now busy pummeling the State Department, is actually engaged in building the foundation for a presidential boom for himself. •-.The theory is that if his charges of communism in the Administration help to elect a Republican Congress this fall, his fellow members of the GOP will be so grateful to McCarthy that they'll elevate him to major candidacy. There are a lot of hazards in this strategy, if that's really where McCarthy is aiming. The mythical Senator Ashton, hero of a political movie of a couple of years ago, had H surer approach to high party success. Instead of trying to pile up blackmarks against the opposition, he just kept track of what his own party leaders did. When the senator's colleagues glanced at his diary and noted how their performance looked in black and white, they gladly nominated him for president. In return, of course, for publishing rights to the diary—which they intended never to exercise. TITOIWDAT, MAT II, 1*M Views of Others Drunken Driving Penalties. Getting a drivers' tesl inal will kee|i the obviously dangerous ones off lhe road seems to be about as difficult as working some level-headed economy into government. But at least the penalties for reckless driving should be enforced. There is, for example, a state law ol 1049, which requires that on conviction ot drunken driving, the driver's license shall be revoked. This Is no longer done by tile state Revenue Department except In certain flagrant cases (three reckless driving convictions in a year, failure to stop and give aid after an accident, or negligent homicide). The law was changed last year because of so many failures to notify the Revenue Department of convictions Attorney General Ike Mnrry's office says many courts apparently are not familiar with the new arrangement. It makes the suspension of licenses mandatory for 30 days on the (irst conviction «nd longer periods for the second and third. Also, convictions after the first one draw fines and Jail terms. That last feature has "bite", in it. But. too often, when enforced, the Jnll sentence is suspended, nnd it should not be for wilful, repeated offenses. Drunken driving is too much of a public menace. —ARKANSAS DEMOCRAT Subversion in Ridgewood Angclo Padu)jijs;lroublcs all stemmed from the face that he had the wrong taste in fniit. Now, If he had driven around Rldgewoori, N. J.. with a ''This is a peach" sign on his automobile, he might never have seen the inside of a courtroom. He might even have received from a grateful automobile company a perpetual pass for the George Washington bridge, a new blade for his rear window wiper, and a lifetime supply of paste and baling wire to hold his automobile together. But he didn't. Instead he was haled into court and ordered to remove the signs lie had put on his automobile. Just because they proclaimed forthrightly, "Tills is a lemon." A lemon It was. too. As Mr. Padula told the citizenry of Ridgewood, it traveled only nine miles on a gallon. The Judge In this case, one John Grimshaw Jr., must have been reading about the dire things that happen when people get fed up and start complaining. Mavbe it was hosv the women's strike ended war in Aristophanes' "I,ysis- trala." Maybe even an account of that subversive incident, the Boston Tea Party, found its way into his hands. Anyway, so long as he Is holding down the bench, there won't be any danger of a thing like that going on In Ridgewood. He won't ever let people talk. Don't throw away those "This Is a lemon" signs, .Mr. Padtila. Paste them in the judge's courtroom instead. —ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH So They Say This man (Sen.

Ing, I'd have baked a cake." Tough Problem to Solve One real new problem, which hadn't been anticipated by military experts, was raised by this "Operation Swsrmer." The maneuver simulated an invasion of the North Carolina coast by an enemy force. In planning the defense against this supposed invader the question came up as to whether U.S. plane would dare bomb nnd strafe his forces, knowing that many American civilians might .get killed if the action were real. There was some hot debate on this point by all partici- nants, as _well as by the umpires. The question is still getting grave attention al the Pentagon top levels, but no decision hns been reached.

'Copter salesmen and pilots warn the charter flight candidates, however. to make rally arrangements that wi>n't cut the crowds into sausage By DeWJTT MacKENKIE AP Foreign Affafn Analyst 60 Secretary-General Trygve Lie Th« DOCTOR SAYS There Is no doubt that the best food for a new-born Infant Is the mother's milk. When such feeding is possible there Is no need to argue the value of other methods. This does not mean, however, that infants cannot grow well and stay healthy If they are fed artificially Artificial feeding has been carried out successfully many, many tunes It Joes mean,: however, that If one compared a large group of breast-fed infants .with a large group of artificially-fed Infants, the breast-fed group would gain more and be more healthy on lh« average than the artificially fed group. The food needs of infants are great both from the standpoint of quality'and quantity. Good modern Infant care Includes frequent weighing during the first few months Any failure to gain weight because of Insufficient intake would thus be discovered quickly. Quality means what kinds of food are given. The starch, fat. protein, and mineral needs are excellently supplied in mother's • milk. Even this, however. Is frequently supplemented by giving an infant orange juice and cod liver oil which supply important vitamins, in the artificially fed children, such additional substances besides the milk formula are even more desirable. Cows milk which forms the basis if most artificial feeding formulas is somewhat different from human milk. It contains a larger amount ol protein, a smaller amount of sugar, atld there are some less important differences. When artificial feedings are necessary, however, cow's milk, to which is added sugar In some form, serves as the basis of the formula. Protein in the form of strained 1 meats has been reported to be val- ' uablc for Infants In prevent anemia. The greatest gain in weight Is during tiie first six months when the average Infant doubles its birthwcight. During the second half of the first year the weight gain of the united Nations did see Marshal SUIln In Moscow afUr til. and with a certain amount of smugness your columnist notes In pastlnc that he forecast th* likelihood of this meeting. After all, Stalin had nothing whatever to lose by such a prlvats conversation. On the contrary, hit reception of Lie was ostensibly a gesture of amity.

Details Are Unkcnrn We don't know the details of the hour-and-«-half conversation in the Kremlin. However, we may take-It. for granted that nothing has happened to affect materially the Russian cold w»r program. Th« ultimate goal of that offensive- world communlzation—Is unchangeable. Secretary iJe's announced mission to Moscow was to "save tha U.N.." which early In Its existence came up against the studied obstruction of the Soviet and 1U satellite nations. One of the most troublesome bones of contention, of course, lias been the question of Chinese membership In the peace organization "since the Chinese communists gained control of the country. Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek's Nationalists still retain ll'.eir scats, and the Soviet bloc has boycotted every U. N. organ having Nationalist membership. Problem Discussed? Therefore observers are taking it for granted that the Stalln-LIe conference must have discussed tills knotty problem. However, there have been no signs In Moscow that the Russians have any Intention of altering their refusal to participate in any U.

Slot Machine Kings Kescni Attention Rumors of some backstage ma- ^neuvering have come 'out in connection with the new bill which would prohibit Interstate shipment ol all gambling devices. The measure has passed the Senate and is now before the House Interstate Commerce Committee. It is aimed primarily at the slot machine racket.

Cash Means Shock Well, now. when you translats that Into cash you get a shock. Military experts estimate that during the war it required about $100,1100,000 to equip an armored division with primary equipment. It took, from half to three quarters of this. amount lo equip an Infantry division. Those costs Aive gone much higher since the w^fr 1 The lowest estimate for the defense of Europe against Red aggression' Is said to be 10 armored and 20 ^infantry divisions. Thus close to $2.500,000.000 would be needed for ground forces alone. Several of the European nations say they /re in no position to undertake such an outlay. Some of them even would have difficulty in finding the manpower for Ihis defense. Position 'of West That's the unhappy position to which Moscow's cold war has pucn- ed the Western nations. As pointed out in yesterday's column, one of the most Important item In Russia's cold _war strategy Is to Inflict economic damage on the "enemy." There's more than one way of skinning a cat. and more than one method of defeating an opponent. If you -can break him economically you have him whipped militarily as well. That strategy bids fair to continue, and no conference between Marshal Stalin and Secretary General Lie Is likely to alter the position greatly.
