Under the guidance of Bernard M. i Baruch, the United States developed a world control plan founded on UN owu- ership of all dangerous atomic facilities, outlawing of atomic weapons and rigid inspection to guard against violations f ' by particular countries. With some chan- . ges; this plan:was adopted by n-nia- . jority of the UN membership. But the U. S. is not now insisting, that this plan and only this be put into effect. Mr. Truman said we are standing on it, to be sure. But he emphasized that the reason we have 'not abandoned it is that we see no alternative that offers hope of real effectiveness. It is evident that this nation would • be disposed to accept any program that . could meet that test. In our espousal of the Baruch plan there is no blind, stubborn clinging to an idea simply because it happens to be ours. We simply want to be shown convincingly that another plan can really do a better job. The basic Russian suggestion is considered by American leaders to be no plan at all. It would retain national ownership of dangerous atomic facili- , ties, would not allow more than a superficial inspection to detect violations of a proposed ban on atomic weapons, and would rely chiefly on a mere outlawing treaty. Kussian Foreign Minister Vishinsky has indicated -that such a treaty might follow the pattern 6 of the agreement banning the use of poison gas in war. The fact that the nations which fought World War it did refrain from using gas is cited as proof that this sort of compact can be effective. Some columnists have insisted that the United States can Jiope for no more , than this if it really desires agreement with the Soviet Union on the atomic issue. They believe the outlawing treaty will work because of the mutual fear ..of reprisal in case a violation occurs. But the U. S. spokesmen are not satisfied. They declare that any plan lacking a tough inspection system and world ownership of dangerous atomic facilities would not be a sufficient barrier to continued national development of atomic weapons. And apparently they feel the temptation to use those weapons would be far greater than was the case with poison gas in World War II. Gas has never , been thought of as a potentially decisive ' factor in war, but the atom bomb has been and still is so viewed. Some military experts may argue on the latter score, yet it is hard to sec how any argument on the decisive effect of the bomb could be settled except in actual war. It would seoni extremely unwise to adopt a course as- suming «tomic energy would not play the critical roie in a future conflict. Helping to Slice Surplus The •Department of Agriculture is getting an assist from an unexpected quarter in meeting the problem of a .big corn surplus this year. The help conies from the corn borer, .1 busy pest who allacks stalks, cobs and kernels with equal vigor. With singular judgment, the borer lias picked Iowa, the leading corn state, for his heaviest ravages. Largely as result of his work, the 1049 2owa crop' is expected to be 15 per cent below last year's. The.department is unlikely to show any gratitude for this aid. Its current appropriation probably contains funds aimed at stamping out the borer. So that 1050 will be safe for bigger surpluses. Views of Others Solid Gain for Our Side The Bethlehem Steel Co. has set up a pension system providing a minimum retirement pay of $100 a month for employes with 25 years of service, and carrying benefits for others with | CS s time. This Is the best domestic news in a long time. i H means, first, that an Important company In an absolutely key Industry has recognized the principle that men wear out no less than machines and that Industry has as much obligation to provide for the depreciation of Its human beings as for its mechanical equipment. . It means, second, that the deadlock between the steel companies and tlie slcelv/orkers union Is cracked If not broken. Now that Bethlehem has reached an nereemnet o n non-contributory pensions, the likelihood Is that the other major companies will soon arrive at settlements on one Oasis or another. And when the steel stoppage ends me probability is that the coal strike will quickly fot- loy,- suit.. ! All this cannot happen loo soon. The steel and coal shutdowns are'piling up the wrong kind of backlogs/and piling them up fast. The former 13 In Its fifth week, the later in Its seventh. They are not only putting a heavy drag on production and employment here at home; they are also retard- Ing our ability to make good on our overseas commitments _to our allies In the cold war against Communism. The Bethlehem agreement is already being described as s great union victory and of course It is. We think that It Is also a company victory In that the "company has taken a most important step in bringing steel up with those other lines ol Industry which provide security systems tor their employes. ' Here is solid gain for employers as well as em- ployes. Here is tlie kind of bulwarking ol the American system of enterprise which will strengthen us against the propaganda which comes, from the Kremlin and their agents abroad. Here Is solid gain for our side. ' We do not attempt to Judge the details of the pension settlement. These must be based on careful study and sound planning, A system not so based Is no pension system at all—it would be only a delusion. But these are details which could and should have been__worked out hi collective bargaining wllhoiil^uiting down steel lurnaces. For today the country can applaud the bcgin- iiliiB of the end of .the strike and the acceptance of the principle that Industry is responsible for tlie men it wears out.—St. Louis Post-Dispatch SO THEY SAY Write down (your) ultimate objectives in life and a plan of action for achieving them.
