McCarran Roadblock Stalls Passage of a Liberal DP Bill Not long ago » 12-year-old Latvian girl landed in New York. .She was the • 150,000th European to enter the United States under the 1948 Displaced Person* Law. The blonde youngster, was greeted by an Array band, a delegation of national and local officials, and many friendly : Americans. She was taken on » round of ceremony topped off by an appearance at Washington's sesqui-cen- tennial celebration. Eventually she'll settle down and go to high school in a small New York town. She wants to study medicine so •he can help others as they have helped her family. The warmth of America's response to ting young girl is typical of the openhearted welcome most of us have always shwn toward the homeless and downtrodden of other lands. It contrasts pointedly with Uie chill that hangs over a proposal in Congress to liberalize the DP law so we can do s better job of meeting this need. "Under present law only 55,000 more DP'i may be admitted to the United States. The pending revision would allow an additional 134,000 boynd that number, to enter. Furthermore, it would be a step toward wiping out restrictions that have been widely assailed as marked by religious and racial bias. Few measures in Congress have enjoyed broader backing All elements of U. S. life, including labor and farm organizations, have spoken up. This bill has now passed both nou- ses of Congress. In facl. it cleared the Senate April 5 after setting through the House last year. That it hasn't yet reached the White House for virtually sure signature is due to one main obstacle. That roadblock is Senalor ileCarran, Nevada Democrat who heads the Judiciary Committee which considers such legislation. McCavran has been a bitter enemy of DP plans at every stage. In 1919 he succeeded in shelving a liberalizing proposal. Tins year the measure passed despite his (lugged opposition. But, as is common, certain differences exist between then House and Senate versions of the bill Selected mem- beers of the two chambers must meet in conference to reconcile them. ISxccpl where the gaps are wide, compromise should be a mallei of days—not weeks. No such broad differences exist on the 1)1' bill. Reports from the capital make plain the delay is being caused by McCan-an's last-witch efforts to kill the measure, He hopes, apparently, that Congress will adjourn before action is forced. McCarran is seeking to thwart the will of the people unmistakably expressed through their representatives in both houses. He should not b« allowed to •ticceed. The other conferees should insist that McCarran meet will) them promptly to agree- on a final bill and dispatch it to Hie President's desk. lo Whirlwind Romance The CIO and AKL are flirting again with the idea of union into a single great labor organization. But careful observers don't take the talk too seriously. They say that even if a joining came about it would be H marriage not of love but of convenience. • There are no real bonds of affection between Hie two. They're being driven into each other's arms by the need for a united political front in the fall campaign. Senalor Pepper's defeat in Florida and other early results have disturbed labor leaders, for they see prospects of a pro-labor Congress dwindling. Keep Off Their Level The United Stales has ordered Czechoslovakia to reduce its American diplomatic staff, in retaliation for the Czechs' insistence thai we cut our embassy slaff in Prague bp two-thirds. Assuming that Czech diplomatic personnel in this country is loyal to the Communist regime in Prague, no one could feel much regret at any impending departures. For the diplomatic corps of the .satellite nations, like that of Russia itself, probably constitutes a cloak for diligent espionage activities. It seems unfortunate, though, that we frequently feel we must resort to reprisals in matters of this soil. The tech- nitiue smacks of simtll-ljoy revenge, some observers say. It's (he very sort of thing the Russians themselves can be counted on to do, they explain. But on the other hand, this type of operation is probably better justified as a manifestation of the old maxim of "Fight fire with fire." Views of Others And So Mexico Plants More Cotton Down In Mexico, just across the sleepy Rio Grande, hundreds of thousands of acres ot cotton are swelling Into maturity under the golden sun. The cotton wasn't there lost year, but It ; s there now. H was planted when the Mexicans learned that crazy norteamericanos had passed • law against planting as much cotton in 1950 us they planted in I9i9. And so, beginning in the (all ot 1950, the Mexican coiton will lake over just that much more of the foreign market which the American producer is losing steadily. This ij anjncredlbly fantastic situation. Her* te » country^ij;b. a modern agriculture that can compete successfully in world markets with even the lowest-paid coolie labor. But a pseudo-benevolent, government has built a parity wall around them. This wall protects the planters Irom the cold wind of economic reality by guaranteeing them parity price for their cotton. They plant and reap In a sort of dream world. And all while they drift farther away from reality. Present indications are Hint the government plaus to perpetuate Ihe situation by tightening its strangle hold on cotton. The argument Is, o! course, that the government must control production If it is going to set the price and guarantee It. It must guarantee the price to Veep planters from being destroyed by » devastating slump in the market. Therefore, H has built and furnished — at the expense of the taxpayers — H beautiful dream castle for cotton. The Washington fathers have overlooked the /act that they are destroying cotton with the very methods they employ t o prevent 11.5 destruction. In Texas, where the bulk of the crop Is tagged for export, death of cotton as n cash crop Is inevitable under the present system. That cash crop last year wns worth almost a billion dollars to Texas farmers. Yet here is the Federal Government actually -spending money to dry up this source nf income for the stale. —DALLAS MORNING NEWS So They Say A Glimpse Under the Curtain Let us back up tough legblation and undim- ishcd policing with forthright ind couraReous loiir- nalisin to help eliminate rlie serious menace of the sex criminal.—Edwin S.

Milter,-Jr. Peter Edson's Washington Column — Truman's Newest Economist Big Three Sidesteps China Crisis in UN DOCTOR SAYS Constipation Is complained about a lot but It Is not as common as nost people think. The term chron- c constipation "should be used only when the bowel actually does keep waste matter too long. It should not be confused with a spastic colon or irritable bowel, which so many peo- lile mistake for constipation. No one reels really full of pep and vigor unless the waste material from food passes through the In- :estines In the proper way. If t It goes too fust diarrhea Is present; if it stays too long In the lower bowel or large Intestine and becomes hard and dry, constipation results. Either of these Interferes with a really healthy feeling. The proper emptying of the bowel Is partly a matter of training. Neglect and improper training, especially In childhood, are often at fault. A regular time of day for bowel movement should be chosen early in lite. This responsibility should be given to a youngster as soon as he Is able to take it. At this time careful instruction snould be given not only ns to the regularity of bowel movement but also on the importance of respond Ing to nature's call as the constant suppression of this impulse is likely to produce constipation and perhaps piles or hemorrhoids. Diet, of course, has a great deal regulating the bowel to do By FRANCIS W. CAHPfiNTMt (For De Witt MacKenaie) AP Foreign Affair* An»ly»t LAKE SUCCESS—The decision of the Big Three foreign ministers in London against acting now In th» China crisis In the United Nation* Is said by a United Nations diplomat to mean these two things: 1. The West in effect Is te!IIn» Nationalist China to take It easy and not prtss In the U.K. little •assembly Its charges that the SovK Union Is a threat to the peace \ot the Far East. The West Is opposed to antagonizing Russia further at tins time. 1. In return for letting the Nationalist, China charges against the Soviet Union rest quietly In a u.N. pigeonhole the West will not support at present any move by any source to oust Nationalist chin* from the U.N. Walkout lilts It This Interpretation was voiced as the Soviet Union ran to 28 the number of U.N. bodies hit by the Russian walkout strike against Nationalist China. Russian delegate Pavel CVinrny- 2 ''erms Himself 'Expendable' WASHINGTON —(NBA)— Roy Blough, new third mnn on President Truman's Council of Economic Advisors, will come to the job with a commitment quit it It he finds he Isn't doing any Good. Blough was formerly head of treasury tax research. He left that at the end I the war and ent back to eaching econom- cs at University of Last December Blough made a peech before an American Eco- .omics Association meeting in New 'ork. Ills subject wns, "Political and dministrative Requirements lor Vchicving Kconomic Stability." Dr. Edwin G. Nourse had just reigned as chairman of the CEA. Blough nl that time was not even being considered for membership on the Council. But the speech he made may have had something to do with his selection for the job four months later. Slough's speech was really an analysis of what makes the work of a presidential economic adviser almost impossible to do. Blongh concluded that the Council of Economic Advisers should be absolutely independent of presidential or other political pressure in whatever it recommended. Then came this kicker: "Perhaps we should look on Council members ns expendable, each carrying forward the work as far as .he Individually cnn, then retiring in favor of others who can carry it farther before they, loo, drop by the wayside. I suggest that even the institution oC the Council itself is expendable and that sooner or later it will be cut down politically to be replnnrd by some other organization carrying forward the same functions in somewhat different ways. Talking Himself Out of a Job What BloURh seems to have done in this speech was to prepare the way for his own exit even before he knew he was to enter the Council of Economic Advisers, and to predict its nltimnte end. Stories prevalent in Washington for the past few months — that President Truman was looking for a ncv,' chairman to replace Dr. Nourse—were untrue. The President movement and avoiding constipation. Food should be carefully chosen and properly chewed. The diet should contain enough .fruits and vegetables which supply "roughage" or bulk to provide sufficient volume to produce one good bowel movement a day. If too many laxative foods are contained In the diet, however. It may irritate the intestine find cause too many or too loose stools. This should be avoided as well as the other extreme of insufficient bulk. The constant use of laxatives or cathartics with the idea of completely emptying the bowel Is desirable. The intestines; rtre un- not meant to be entirely empty under normal conditions and the too frequent use of laxatives merely Irritates and may cause actual harm to the intestines. Diet Counts v Simple constipation can usually he satisfactorily treated with diet nlone. This is more difficult if the condition has lasted for many years, hut satisfactory diet, exercise and regularity ordinarily succeed in correcting the difficulty. Chronic constipation, however. Is better avoided than treated. Con- indicnted he wanted Leon H. Key- sequently the proper diet, adequate sorting for chairman and John D. exercise and good boTvel habits Clark for vice chairman, right from the start. Senator Taft's remark that these two, with Blough, "gives the President three left fielders," is ft good crack. But it is pertinent to note that the right field hasn't contributed tnuch of anything to winning the ball game cither.

The China case in the U.N. Involves the question of which regime shall represent the Chinese here. The Nationalist government of Chiang Kai-shek, whose delegate, T. P. Tsiang sits here, claims it is the only elecled government of China. Keds Demand Seat The Chinese Communist regime of Peiplng has demanded the expulsion of Tsiang and a seat in tha U.N. for its delegates, who so Jar liave not attempted to enter ths United States and come to the U.N. headquarters. Soviet Deputy Foreign ..... M1 ^.. Jakob A. Malik walked out of the security council In January because the council would not expel Tsiang. Tti dreary succession the Russians and their followers have walked out of or boycotted other U.N. organ* ns they met. Sixteen of the 63 U.N. memberi have recognized the Peiplng regime. They are: the Soviet Union, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia, India, Burma. Pakistan, Britain, Denmark, Norway, Israel, Sweden', Afghanistan, white Russia, the Soviet Ukraine and the Netherlands. The United States has announced it will not vote to seat a Bed delegation but it will accept the decision ol the majority, if and n-hen * majority ever decides to recognize the credentials of a communist Chinese delegate.

East had to decide whether South was about to ruff the diamond or whether South was up to one of his regular swindles. If he played the king and South happened to ruff, dummy would then have an established diamond on which declarer could discard later on. East finally decided that South was probably "honest." After all, king, South would have been In no danger. There would be no way to give the lead to East. (The play of the king of hearts at the first trick marked the queen of hearts as being in the West hand.) If West, led clubs. South could win the second round of the suit with his king.

The London conference of foreign ministers was awaited here as some indication of a break. The decision against acting dashed those hopes. Secretary-General Trygve Lie's return from his tour of London, Paris ind Moscow is awaited now as the best hope for a break, but Inside sources here predict there will be no charge for some time. Unless Lie turns up something, the next ound will come In the General Assembly opening at Flushing Meadows Sept. 19. U.N. sources say, ho'wevcr, they will do everything for settlement of the crisis before September.
