Have you noticed that men who can't grow mustaches usually are the ones who want them? Wallace and Facts Have you noticed tlie great silence on Korea from Henry Wallace's quarter? The United Nnlioiin SecuriLj- Council was sufficiently convinced of Noiih Korea's aggression to vote military sanctions against her with striking dispatch. The UN's Korean Commission surveying the horder between North and South Korea just before war-;broke out, found the North Koreans had pushed several salients into Soulh Korean territory. It also learned that the northerners had removed civilians from the potential hatle /one in the last days prior to the attack. All the evidence available to the UN, which has some very cautious members, is also at Wallace's disposal. But he has heard, loo, Hie Russians' claim hut the weak, poorly equipped South Koreans were the real aggressors. So Wallace, who seldom waits this long to conclude that his own government is Ki'ilt.v of shortcomings, says he is patiently "studying the facts" to decide for himself who really begun this war. Actually, he's probably studying how to reconcile the brutal facts with his own fantastic notions of world affairs. Views of Others Congress Should Stay on Job And Tackle Statehood Bills Notwithstanding the Korean war, Congress is still planning to go home Aug. 1. This being an election year the 1 '' intention is understandable; but it is ' hardly wise or practical. With every passing day it becomes clearer that the war in Korea is not to he a brief affair. Already President Truman is seeking more money to wage it. Even if the fighting doesn't spread to other areas, he may want to come in at any time with requests for still more money, controls on the civilian economy, more extensive manpower mobilization. Moreover, the new demands thus far submitted are causing congressional leaders to condense their schedule and squeeze out legislation that deserves at- 1 tention at this session. A prime example is afforded by Ihe House-approved bills providing stale- hood for Hawaii and Alaska. Recently these measures were endorsed by the Senate Interior Affairs Committee. Chances of ultimate enactment are strong right now. Much congressional time and taxpayers' money already has been spent in advancing the statehood proposals this far. They've been kicking around Capitol Hill for years and this is the closest hey have ever come to final adoption. It would be not only a foolish waste but a toying with the country's security to let this legislation die at this point. Both Hawaii and Alaska are vital defense outposts in the Pacific, the area most immediately threatened by the Korean war. Were he two territories woven more lightly into the national fabric, the likelihood is they'd get better protection. General Eisenhower and many others have called attention to the weakness of Alaskan defenses. Hawaii is belter off, but hardly in idea! shape. Senators don't wanl to lake the bills up because they're controversial and debate would be long. What this really means is that Congress is taking a poli- lics-as-usual approach lo the Korean war, and simply doesn't wish lo spoil its plans for getting back home to begin campaigning. Naturally nobody likes to have his plans upset. Our armed forces fighting in Korea- undoubtedly were happier living the relatively soft life of occupation troops in Japan. But they have no choice. And if Congress wants to measure up in this emergency, its course of duty is also plain. l,ct the lawmakers recess for several weeks in September and October when the hot campaigning develops. But otherwise they ought to slick by their posts, What of indochina? Because it hasn't attracted scare headlines in the newspapers, the lighting in Indochina hasn't drawn very much popular attention. Even the politicians hove looked upon that "revolution" as a minor incident. But now'that we already nre knee-deep in trouble in Korea it might be pertinent to mention conditions in Indochina. That civil \va.s has been going on for four years and we nre told that it is ncaring a climax, that the communist forces there are getting arms from red China. France has most of her army fighting In Indochina helping Bao Dai. former emperor of Annam, who Is not popular because he collaborated with the Japs and is said to be more Interested in wine and the ladies than in fight- Ing reds. The communist guerrillas are ted by Ho Chi Minn, nearly 60 and said to be dying with tu- herculosjs. He learned his first lessons in communism in France but "graduated" In Moscow. With guerrillas holding'the mountainous regions and fresh troops joining him from China, he's a tough one to handle. This is a sort of fly In the butter In the situation there. France promised independence to the, then decided it didn't want to give up the valuable colony. Now both sides hate the French, What happens II the United Notions Is called upon to save Indbehina from the communists? 11 any help is glverilTshauld be on the basis of reform with France doing its share. That's very doubtful. If so, Russia Is likely to take over some more terllory without losing one Soviet soldier. —ARKANSAS DEMOCRAT Cotton Acreage Suggests Supply Equal to Demand Observers for the Department of Agriculture have taken a look and, In sum. report that 19,032,000 acres nre planted to cctlon. .This estimate indicates that fanners have not utilized to the limit their acreage quotas. Full planting would have resulted In use of some 21,500.000. The outlook is for a crop of about 10.500.000 bales if production per acre turns out to be In line with the average of the last live years. Al present rate of consumption and export, about 11,200,000 bales will be needed. There was, however, a heavy carry-over on July 1 ol cotton from previous crops. The surplus from [fist year alone is nrarly 4,000,000 bales. 1,190,000 of which are held by the Commodity Credit Corporation as collateral for leans of about SI65.000.000. War in 1041 bulled out the CCC's heavy stock ol cotton for which there was no demand in'nor- mal conditions.

This operation was the culmination of what General MaeArthur's headquarters described us "one of | the most skillful and heroic holding i and rearguard actions in history. 1 ' Its purpose was to provide time | for movement of reinforcements. The story of that finhllne withdrawal Is an eple. Our 1.600 GIs had fought 16,000 North Koreans who wore supported by heavy Russian- built tanks. This meant ten to one ~ Is against our men—odds which at times swelled to about twenty to one. SUM Ihe Yanks withdrew iiethodlrollv, fighting all the way.

However, we shouldn't let our enthusiasm for the successful withdrawal lead u> into the mistake of thinking that | we are going to turn the tables and push the North Koreans back over | their frontier pell-mell.

Don't 'orget what this column has pointed out before — that Communist forth Korea might be the funnel trough which hundreds of thousands of Manchurlan and Chinese Communist troops would "be poured against us In South Korea.

Air Forces yesterday made their first, mass raid Into North With B-2D superfortresse.s. blasted a rail center with 500 tons of bombs, which must haye resulted in great devastation. This probably gives rise to the query in some minds as to why we don't use ft few atnmic bombs. In this connection one recalls that Secretary of State Acheson yesterday made it clear «t a news conference that the United States won't be diverted by Soviet propaganda from using atomic weapons many cases during tlie change jf military necessity dictate.s.
