Governors' Meeting Serves A Highly Useful Purpose In the past 12 years, the annual governors' conference and the'' permanent organization behind it have risen in stature until they now contribute markedly to the growth of responsible government in America. As was shown in the 42nd meeting .lust concluded at White Sulphur Springs, W. Va., the governors' conference is no mere social assembly highlighted by a few speeches from top national figures. Around four-fiths of the nation's governors appear each year. They wade eagerly into a fat agenda of problems common to most of the states. Carefully conceived solutions are offered and discussed. Most important, the governors meet each other, get on a first-name basis, talk over their mutual difficulties informally in hotel lobbies and dining rooms. Their work is earnest, and largely above politics. With the ice thus broken, the governors find it easy when they return home to pick up the telephone and call one another to confer on some governmental wrinkle that may develop. This is not to say, of course, that no political overtones creep into the conferences. Quite the reverse: they have become effective sounding boards for governors eyeing the presidency. While politics is naturally incidental to conference purpose, that by-product aspect affords the people some useful clues when they start measuring candidates. The largely unsung hero of the conference is Frank Bane, executive head of the Council of Slate Governments which sponsors them. He not only manages the meetings; he steers the council's permanent staff in the same sort of linson work among the states that the governors achieve in their face-to-face sessions. Every state is aided in drawing on the experience of every other. Uniformity in divorce, tax, highway traffic and other laws is sought, and is slowly being achieved. All kinds of advisory reports are prepared. The result is a steadily rising level of administrative competence in slate government. !f it be true that Washington has now taken too much power to itself, at the expense of state and local units, then this council would seem to provide the best possible focus for forces pulling the other way. Many governors see it as the prime agency through which they can work to keep as much government as possible at the grass roots level. Surely democracy as a theory is pro- moled when it is made to work well on the local and regional scene, where things happen in fact and not just on paper. Seen but Not Touched Disturbed because East Berliuers can wander into the city's western zones and see attractive goods for sale in shop windows, the Soviet-run stores of the eastern section have hit on a solution, They are now displaying their own attractive array of consumer items in the windows. There's only one hitch— you can't buy the stuff. Apparently it's just laid out to prove that the Communists can at least make it, even if not in sufficient volume to sell. During the recent heralded German Red youth rally in Berlin, this little scheme had a try-out. The government put some sausages out on loan to the shops, and they were promptly strung in windows to impress the throngs of youngsters from out of town. Later, after the kids had dispersed, the Communist officials called in their loan. The strings of sausages disappeared, presumably returning to the Government Sausage Reserve, or wherever the Reds keep such treasures^ Views of Others Opportunity in Our Population Shift The pattern of living in Arkansas is profoundly changing. From a state overwhelmingly rural, we are moving lov;ard a balance between rural and urban population. First figures from the 1350 census point lo a. heavy swing in this direction. They show a loss of .population In many rural areas, and pronounced gains for our cities and many towns. This shilt began with World War 1. It has continued through each census since 1010, even the one of 1840, which covered the depressed '30's when many who had left the farms returned to them. A big reason for the citywlde drift Is the sensational gain in farm efficiency, spurred by more machinery and higher producing crops and livestock. Another obvious cause is the striking industrial growth of our cities and towns. This has opened thousands of city Jobs which pay more than many could earn on the farm. And then we fire a restless people. The change Is not a bad thing for Arkansas; It Is a good thing, if we can continue to provide the needed urban Jobs. Economists tell us that the strongest and most prosixjrous communities are those which have about'a 50-50 balance between farming and Industry. Arkansas now has the opportunity for such a balance within its grasp. Providing the required Job puts a greater responsibility on both city and farm leaders.They must work together to develop more Industry and business if we are to create from our shifting population s more balanced, more prosperous state for all. Processing of farm products is one of our brightest prospects. The rewards ol successful effort will be high: larger Individual farm incomes, better earnings for many city and town people, increased wealth to maintain schools, churches, hospitals, all social snd cultural activities. •• That Is a goal which should Inspire our ablest efforts. —Arkansas Democrat Foreign Employees In Our Embassies Too many foreigners are employed hi our embassies, consulates and legations abroad, according to a Senate foreign relations subcommittee. It suggests that they be replaced by American citizens. 11 is good theory, but its application will he more difficult than you may think. Too far greater extent than most other big powers we lean heavily on foreign employees in. our diplomatic and commercial relations abroad. There's a reason. We Americans are peculiarly lacking in the know-how of foreign relations. In the first place, it Ire- difficult to find persons who can even speak the foreign tongue required for efficient service in In these posts. When we add to this "language blindness" our peculiar deficiency in matters ol foreign relations, we arc heavily handicapped. Under normal peacetime conditions, the practice of hiring foreign experts would not be so bad. In this day ot intensive colcl war effort and espionage, it Is dangerous policy, as the Senate subcommittee suggests. We should at least move part ol (lie way suggested by the subcommittee by closer official scrutiny of foreign employees in our foreign service. But we will be weak in this branch of government until we, as a people, become better informed tn foreign affairs. There used to be a saying in diplomatic circles: "Go to the British embassy if you want protection. Go to the German embassy If you want Information. Go to the American embassy if you want a drink of whiskey." We are doing better In our foreign relations personnel and service In recent years—but there Is still room for improvement. —Dallas Morning News So They Soy An ambitious and needy student can si 111 find ways and means to go through college without Kovcrnment aid. There are available many scholarships, work opportunities and large college loan funds, a great part of which are not now in use. —Guy E. Suavely, executive director, Association of American Colleges. * * * Due to the very great efforts of the Europeans themselves, the Communists are losing their battle to perpetuate hunger and misery and hopelessness In country after country.—ECA Administrator Paul Hoffman. It's Dead, but It Can't Lie Down ( OH, WO,V6U CQN'T/ ) YOU OOtTA STAY I UP AMP COLLECT \ TtiOSt XtifeS r ' Ufr**. it Peter Edson's Washington Column — Action by Manufacturers Held To be Cause of Pepper Defeat By PETER EDSON NFA Service Correspondent INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. <NEA)_ A claim that the recent Florida primary election defeat of Democratic Senator Claude Pepper was engineered by Florida manufacturers Is made here by Arthur C- Conde, executive vice president o( the Indiana Manufacturers' A.ssn. In this election the winner was Rep. George A. Smathers of Miami, to whom Mr. Condc says Associated Industries of Florida gave all-out support. a While it ts only natural to won- rier what an Indiana manufacturer knows about political conditions in Florida, Mr. Conde's claims present a story that hangs together. This story is somewhat in conflict with previous political dope. During the campaign there were various loose charges by Senator Pepper's supporters and unnamed "big northern manufacturing Interests" who "spent their winters in Florida" were financing and backing Representative Smathers. charges were denied by the Smothers campaign managers. Experienced Washington political reporters who visited Florida during the campaign also said they could find no direct evidence of this big northern money. And after the election the general interpretation given was that the Smathers victory was merely an indication that the Florida voters rjad turned away from the New Deal-Fair Deal philosophy of Senator Pepper. According to Mr. Conde's account, the story is by no means so simple. It begins last year at a meeting ot the National Industrial .Council at a Colorado resort. Mr. Conde says the general strategy of the pro- Smathers and anti-Pepper campaign, was planned at this meeting. Council Operates Quietly First, a little explanation of National Industrial Council is necessary to understand the background. It Is a little-known organization, made up of the managers of 33 state manufacturers' associations. Ten states which are largely agricultural and manufacturers' organizations are not represented. Little Danger of Korean Crisis Meaning War III By DcWITT MacKKN'KIK Al' Foreign Affairs Analyst The United States has denounced as an "act of aggression" the Com- nunlst-backcd attack by North Korea on the republic of Southern The DOCTOR SAYS By EDWIN P. JORDAN, M. I). Written for NEA Service About one child In 500 Is born •ith a peculiar-shaped skull and defective brain—a condition called mongoloid idiocy. Nine times out of 10 the diagnosis can be made on the first day of life. Most mongoloid chillren' are happy and friendly. During Infancy | wor f d war most are imitative and they often like music. They rarely learn to speak properly and the voice tends to be rough and harsh. The skull is squall and round, the Korea, and is rushing military supplies from Japan to its little protege. The South Korean ambassador to Washington, John Myun Chang, not only brands the act as aggression but says it couldn't have been carried out "without Soviet direction^ U. S. Senator Knowland of CaVv ferula, who recently visited KoreiiY agrees with Chang, as do other close observers, Including your correspondent. Accepting this as a well founded appraisal, what significance can we attach (o it? Can It possibly mean that Russia Is using tills "incident" as the springboard for another major war? I think not. There has been no sign that the Soviet Union want* this Juncture. On the the indications are contrary, all Ihnt Moscow isn't prepared for an all-out conflict.

Frequently the cheecks are red, the hair Is coarse, the teeth appear late, the tongue lends to protrude. . . The nose Is stubby and depressed, with . the nostrils angling forward. The name—mongolism — comes from the appearance which Is something like that.,of the far- eastern race known as Mongols. Many possible causes have been suggested, studied, and abandoned Some people think, or at least have thought, that mongolism comes from some hereditary tendency, the exact nature of which has not yet been discovered. fn recent, years, however, most of those who have studied the subject agree that there is a. definite relationship the more important Communist offensive elsewhere In Asia. That could be so, because numerous other Asiatic theatres are threatened. Time will have to demonstrate :he Red motive. Meanwhile, however, southern Korea in Itself Is of such great strategic value that Russia, undoubtedly would do much to gain complete domination of It. To understand this point we need only go back fifty years to the time when Russia had diplomatic con-^ trol of Korea and Japan declar^M. that the peninsula of Korea was "a da^er pointed at her heart." Korea Provoked One War From (he military standpoint that charge was true, and it brought about the Russo-Japanese war of 1904-5. Japan. was successful and between the age of Russia recognized Tokyo's para- mother and the frequency of j mount Interest in Korea. Finally In All of the 38 state organizations are, of course, members of the NAM—the National Association Manufacturers. The National Industrial Council, however, has no vote in NAM..The Council Is rather the trade association of the secretaries or active managers— not the presidents—of the state associations. National Industrial Council meets frequently in Washington and New York so that the managers of the state manuafcturers' associations mongollsm in a child, that Is, the older the mother the greater the chance of having a mongoloid child.' An Accldfnl The birth of a mongoloid child Is a great misfortune.

Most people believe that mongollan idiots should he committed to an institution as soon after birth as possible.
