Government Shouldn't Pay Peron's Debts to U.S. Firms With the cold war centering in Europe and Asia, we seldom dwell much nowadays on events affecting • South America, But the recent £125,000,000 U. S. grant of credi to the Peron government in Argentina deserves to be hauled up put of the backwash of public attention. The average citizen reading of that grant would assume that some if not all of the money would tie sent to Argentina. The fact is, not a single cent will leave the United States. It's to be used to bail out banks and big and little businesses that have been dealing with Peron on credit and now can't collect from him. In other words, the U. S. is in effect making itself a collection agency for these various concerns. The big question is whether this is the kind of thing our government ought to do. We are indulging banks and business outfits in their mistakes. We don't normally rescue them when they commit similar errors at home. If they go out on a shaky credit limb, we let them take the fall. Why adopt a softer attitude toward their foreign dealings? Won't it simply invite a repetition of the same practices? There may be some excuse for the little companies involved, since they don't always have the executive know-how that leads to careful weighing of cre- lit risks. But there's little sense in the Jig firms' getting into so unsound a position as they have in Argentina. If they fee! competition compels them lo extend credit to such a poor bet, ' they still have no reason to believe that the American people must underwrite their errors. Big business is strong enough to pay its own penalties; (hey are the inescapable cost of doing business in the risky climate of a free economy. Furthermore, won't the big companies merely be playing Peron's game if they start from scratch and extend new credits once these old debts are paid? The arrogantly proud Argentine dictator won't condescend to ask the U S government directly for an out-and-out loan. But he can achieve the same result, without loss of face, if Argentine enterprises can buy on credit from U. S firms and Hie latter can count on Die American government to bail them out when they can't collect. Probably the banks and smaller outfits have been burned severly enough to their lesson. But Washington ought to make it clear t 0 big business that it won't save anybody a second lime. That way the whole Jburdcn will be on the Individual firm taking the risk. And if Argentina has a good argument for buying but can't meet the credit terms of American companies, let Peron try to obtain a loan in the same open fashion that any other foreign leader must rely upon. When that time comes—if ft cvcr does—the loan application can be weighed on its merits, and particularly w ith regard to ils effect on American relations with other more friendly South American countries.

TUESDAY, JUNE 13, 1950 Peter Edson's Washington Column— New Atomic Missiles Posing Problem of Adequate Defense By DOUGLAS LAKSEN NEA Staff Correspondent (Peter Edson is on special assign mcnt.> WASHINGTON —(NEA)— The are several methods of guiding the missiles which have been more or less successful. The "homing" type of missile is attracted to metal to have atomic night. vnrheads, is so tar along that the military planners have begun to do ome serious stewing about the next obvious problem—a satisfactory de- ense against them. The assumption Is that If you've jot a pretty good new weapon. It probably won't be long before the : .emy will have the same thini; io you better start worrying about defense. As It works out now, the .evelopment of a new weapon and an adequate defense against it are iractlcally the same program. Details and capabilities ot the arious missiles which are very close o what the services call "opera- lonal" are top secret. But certain encral information has been re- caled about them piecemeal. There But perhaps the most effective guidance system is the one thst is pre-set or pre-aimed at a specific target. This system Includes complicated methods for correcting errors of navigation caused by winds and other factors. It is most adaptable to high speed and long range. The performance of such.a missile permits it lo hit a target as well as a plane can by dropping bombs, be capable of ranges well over 1000 miles and be able to travel at supersonic speeds. Rrst Suited to Surprise Attack H is this latter type of guided missile which has the defense ex- verts most concerned. It's the' one that enemy will most likely use lor any surprise altack. That description of » missile's capabilities makes It sound pretty invincible. Like the German V-2 which nobody knew was comins; until afler It exploded, what possible defense could there be against it after It was fired? The answer to this part of the problem has been found In the development of the missile Itself, the experts admit. It a missile travels 3000-miles- per-hotir, an anil-missile missile has lo travel a little faster to knock it out. The defensive missile can be ol much shorter range, so it wouldn't be hard to give it that extra speed, the experts say. But how could you ever hit a missile i-oing 3000 miles an hour? And that, too, is no technical obstacle, they say. The same electronics gear that sends a missile unerringly lo a target can be adapted lo send an anti-missile to It. This Involves homing devices. Some Officials of U.S. A re Reassured on EGA Th« DOCTOR SAYS For the normal person table salt or sodium chloride is necessary for the satisfactory functioning of the body The salt Is kept In g constant proportion in the blood and tissues; the amount of salt present In food or idded In cooking or on the table fs usually just about enough to make up for that which Is lost. In certain diseases, however, the amount of salt taken inlo the body has lo be limited. Too much salt either has a bad effect on the diseased cream or holds an excessive amount of waler In the lissucs of Ihe body Ihus causing Ihe accumulation ot Iluld In Ihe legs or abdomen. Under certain circumstances the excess salt Is not eliminated normally but stays In the tissues- In order to maintain a constant balance between the sodium chloride and water in the tissues, excess water is also retained. For this reason the physician may n may reduce the sail in the diet ol persons with certain kinds of heart dis- th other ease, in chloride ._ „,.„ au ullll the intake has to be strictly rezu- laled. More body sodium chloride Is lost than is taken in when there Is heavy perspiration for a prolonged period of time. This occurs in certain industrial occupations, in hot weather and when there is heavy physical exertion.
