Action' in Korea Crisis May Be Landmark to Peace The United States, acting under President Truman's orders, is moving with high courage and great good sense to answer ,the brazen challenge flung in Korea by the Soviet Union. ,This was a moment of grave import for the whole free world. It was a moment that recalled the fatal milestones leading to war in the 1930s—Hitler's march into the German Rhineland, Mussolini's strike against Ethopia, the Japanese invasion of Manchuria. Acting with the support and concurrence of the United Nations, Mr. Truman boldly demonstrated that freedom'-loving peoples have indeed learned the brutal lessons of the 1930s. Spineless appeasement of aggressors - only emboldens them to strike harder and harder. Each time it is more difficult to halt them, until finally only global conflict can crush their ruthless ambitions. The time to stop an aggressor is the first time, and this we and our friends abroad are clearly resolved to do. Mr. Truman ordered our Navy and Air Force to the aid of South Korea. He insisted that our military effort be strictly defensive, that there be no attack on the territory of the invading Koreans. No Russian clamor that this is "American aggression" will likely impress the world. , The United Nations, itself under its greatest lest, voted courageously to impose military sanctions against the aggressor. The action 'is unprecedented, but it is supremely worthly of the UN's purpose to preserve world peace. In these moves, coupled with our announced intent to protect Formosa, the Philippines and [ndo-China with varying degrees of assistance, there is more than the learning of old lessons. At one brilliant, stroke we arc showing Asia, Europe and the whole world that the United States means what it says when it speaks for freedom and peace. We are showing that we do not let our friends down in time of need. This demonstration already is having a tonic effect everywhere on the globe. Moreover, we have vastly improved our strategic situation in the Far East by drawing Formosa back into our defensive network. We have added one moi-e—a vital one—to our Pacific defense line. Neither President Truman nor anyone else cognizant of the realities would deny that there is risk of war with Russia in the course we have chosen. No one doubts the Soviet Union ordered North Koreans to attack, since their government is a supine puppet of Moscow's. 5>ut it is the considered judgment of our top military «nd diplomatic experts that Russia does not want another war, «t least not now. That conviction unquestionably entered into our decision to act firmly, and also to approach Russia directly in an appeal to her leader* to call off the Korean offensive. But even had we felt the chance of war was greater, we still would have had to make this gamble. For war ,is not halted by encouraging an aggressor. It can only be prevented by the concerted demonstration of peace-loving peoples that aggression cannot succeed. Mr. Truman's decision is historic. It may prove to be one of the greatest landmarks in the cause of world peace. United Nations Insignia Is Urged for Korean War This is the insignia of the United Nations. Let's put it on every airplane and naval vessel defending South Korea. We have no private quarrel with Moscow's North Korean stooges. We're acting to defend the South Koreans against a gross breach of the UN's cease fire orders. The people of this woebegone land of grass huts and rice paddies are simple. If they see the American flag or Uncle Sam's circled star on the ships and planes which are blasting their countryside they will forever believe t that they were attacked by Americans. Some of the people we liberated in • Europe still cringe when they see an -American bomber overhead. Some are still bitter that we had to bomb their cities to rout out the Nazis. Let's not build up that association in the minds of the Asiatics we are trying to liberate. Washington should propose at once that the UN authorize all of the military forces rushing to its aid to go into battle under the United Nations insignia. That goes not only for Uncle Sam's bombers and warships but also for those of Australia, Britain and Nationalist China. Maybe the Koreans unfortunte enough to get caught in the fighting around the 38th parallel won't know what the UN symbol stands for at first, but at any rate they won't think they are being blasted by "American *••?*-_ mongers" like the Russians and their stooges keep drumming into them. Views of Others As Alaska and Hawaii Wait Retiring the Lawn Mower? Now that the Alaska and Hawaii statehood bills have been reported out by the Senate Interior Committee, they should be brought to the floor for a vote as expedltiously as the Administration leadership can manage it. As a measure strengthening the national defense, statehood for these two territories has long been urgently desirable. Prom this standpoint it has hardly been more desirable at any time than It is now. Alaska particularly, and Hawaii but little less so, are among the most vulnerable ol all the areas for which the United Slates is responsible. The State Department Is urging statehood for Hawaii to support American foreign policy and fulfill this country's UN obligation to promote local self-government. Secretary'of Defense Johnson strongly urges it. Interior Secretary Chapman says Hawaii is more ready for statehood than any of the 48 states was at the time of its admission Into the Union. Simillarly impressive testimony has been given In behalf of Alaska's claim to statehood. Both major political parties have pledged statehood for Alaska and Hawaii. Both statehood bills have passed the House at the present session. It is now entirely up to the Senate, where statchood's supporters have beaten the committee bottling-up which bedeflled some earlier efforts. A determined push by the Administration at this favorable time should result in the creation of the forty-ninth and fiftieth stales Since President Truman has repeatedly called on Congress to pass the bills, It now remains only for Majority Leader Uilas to srhedule them for passage. -ST.

They can penetrate to the blood stream through a cut or Injury in the skin. A nail, a farm implement, an axe, or anything else which causes a break In the skin can carry germs to the blood. Most things In contact with the air or ground have germs on them, which are harmless to the unbroken skin, but which may be highly: dangerous if they get into the blood. Once the germs hnve reached the blood stream they may conquer the defenses ,which are present there rapidly and cause blood poisoning. Streptococci are a common and dangerous cause of blood poisoning. In this form of • septicemia the symptoms usually develop extremely suddenly, often with a sharp chill. The temperature Is usually high, and the pulse rate Is rapid. In the past, a high proportion of those-who became infected died often within one to three davs. Now the sulfa drugs or antibiolics have proved ilie-saving for most who are stricken down with septi- ceinia due to streptococci. Another variety of blood poisoning, which until recently killed nearly everyone who got it. is caused by different germs—the staphylococci. Staphylococci are present on even more things than the streptococci. \ When these germs are found in the blood stream, and they can be by taking samples of blood and growing the germs in a test tube, some of the newer antibiolics are now given with astonishingly good results. By PETER EDSON NBA Service Correspondent SPRINGFIELD, 111. (NBA)—Illi- nois has had a long tradition of open gambling. Also, it is the manufacturing center for most of the coin-machine industry, to give it a polite name. This in spite of the fact that for over 50 years, slot machines have been Illegal. The whole trouble, says Gov. Ad- lal E. Stevenson, has been lax enforcement. The take on the slot machines alone has been from $60,000,000 to $100.000.000 a year. ,And since the machines have always been rigged to pay back no more than 20 per cent of the take, the 80 per cent profit has provided plenty of money for political corruption. Just where the corruption went in past state administrations, Governor Stevenson says he doesn't know. But that it went to local or state law enforcement officials seems obvious. The governor and his attroney general, Ivan Elliott, campaigned in 1948 on broad promises of reform and an end to corruption in state government. Since the Stevenson administration has now been In office for a year and a half, and since the slot machines are still being found in raids by the State Police, there have been a number of questions raised as to why campaign promises haven't been carried out. But here the governor makes a distinction. "I said that if I were elected governor, there would bo no iine-s between the gamblers and the state," he explains. "I did not say there would be no local tie-ups, which are a local responsibility." Job for Local Authorities Governor Stevenson offers this explanation not as an alibi, but as a statement of his policy. He does not believe that enforcement of anti-gambling laws should be carried out at the state government level. He believes it should be done by city and county officers, j To this end. the attorney general has called in local sheriffs and police officials of places where gambling was known to exist. These local officials have been lectured on their responsibility, and in some cases even threatened, where cooperation has been negative or sporadic.

When the West player belonged to the more modern school of thought, the result was quite, dif>rent. The reasoning of the opening leader went something like this: 'No long suit has been mentioned, so it looks as though the slam will lepend on high cards. Hence there Is no need to hurry about setting .ip defensive tricks.

It Is especially Illlumit when your partner has not bid anything that would give you a clue to his hand. Many years ago this was a far simpler matter. You invariably led he fourth highest card In your ongcst and strongest suit. If such lead turned out bartly. nobody alamcd you for It. It was- considered bad luck, like having rain on a picnic. The hand shown today illustrates how far we have traveled since those hide-bound days. When it was played in a recent duplicate tournament, almost all the pairs that held the North-South cards reached a contract of six no trump. This was a reasonable enough contract. If the spades break normally, four spade tricks can be won. The hand will then depend on developing five tricks In the two red suits. This should not bo very difficult, M a few tables.

In all these cases declarer won By DeWITT MaeKENZIE AP foreign A Main President Truman's authorization of the use of American grourjd, troops In the Korean fighting sh occasion no surprise, since it wa foregone conclusion based on pressing needs. Invading north Korean troops not only were In possession of Seoul, the southern capital, but a north Korean force headed by armored vehicles had broken through the southern defenses below Seoul. It was a critical situation which might call for the use of Infantry. For despite the amazing progress of science In treating fearful weapons of war, we haven't yet reached the point where foot-soldiers can be dispensed with, Situation Grim The seriousness of the position Is further emphasized by Mr. Truman's authorization for the U.S. air force to fly specific military missions into northern Korea where necessary. The President also authorized the blockade of the entire Korean coast. These moves should tend to allay our anxiety rather than heighten it. They bespeak a vigorous response to the open aggression launched on southern Korea by Soviet-controlled north Korea. That aggression is part and parcel of the Communist drive to take over all Asia. ,^^_ This Korean imbroglio Is a •Sf ticularly good demonstration of th» Cuckoo-fn-the-nest methods employed by Communism In furthering Its world revolution. It's a perfect example of the Bolshevists' scheme of getting the other fellow to do their work for them The present dangerous situation grew out of the unwise allied agreement under which Russia assumed control of northern Korea at the end of the war. while America undertook guardianship of the south This naturally resulted hi the establishment in northern Korea of a puppet Communist government which claimed to act for all Korea. This wasn't recognized by the United Nations, and a republican government was set up In southern Korea. On Red Schedule Then things developed according to Bolshevist routine. Russia proceeded to Communlze north Korea. A Red army was created and thoroughly equipped. Communist agents swarmed Into southern Korea and started their task of sabotaging the government and spreading disaffection. It had been agreed that both America and Russia should withdraw their troops as soon as conditions became settled. The Russians announced that the' last., their occupation troops were drawn on December. '48, tholi this never was verified. . America started withdrawal that month and finished the task on June 28, 1949. Thus the cuckoo's egg was deposited In the Korean nest for hatch- Ing. The north Korean satellite of Moscow took over the job of undermining southern Korea, and finally launched Its attack across the frontier. Moscow shrugged Its shoulders as the conflict swelled and America moved to the rescue of the southern Koreans. The United states sent Moscow i. note, asking Russia to disavow responsibility for the attack and to urge the north Koreans to desist. The Soviet Union blamed the south Koreans and said It couldn't intervene In the Internal affairs of another nation. So the cuckoo's egg Is hatching. While Russia sits tipht. others carry out her program for her. Another little nation is fighting to escape Communism. America and other western powers are being forced to expend huge amounts of money to halt aggression, thereby weakening their economic structures. Should "Northern Korea" succeed, then the whole strategic peninsula would come under control of Russia for further use as a base in the Asiatic offensive. And that's the story not only In Korea but in many other parts of the world. South 2N. T. 6N.T. » AQ6 *AKQ N-S vul. West Xorth Pass 4N.T. Pass Pass Pass Pass Opening lead—4 10.
