We Must Exact Lawful Vengeance The war in Korea is loss than a month old, but already we've had the first report of atrocities committed ngainsl American soldiers. Knowing the contempt Tor human life, which Communists display everywhere, we really shouldn't be surprised. The Reds live hy a creed of hrulalily. Ft will not always he easy for our awn men to resist the temptation to reply in kind. War breeds brutality, and soldiers who see their comrades murdered cannot help but boil with indignation. Yet (he answer to any crimes the North Koreans may commit lies in a different realm. World War II set the pattern. We must document these atrocities carefully and completely. The guilty enemy soldiers must be found and brought lo justice in the same fashion as were the Nazi and Jap war criminals. The lessons of the Germun and Japanese war crimes trials apparently have not been taken to heart by the Communists. We shall have to instruct them, personally. This we must now resolve to do. And we must inform them over and over a^ain, by radio and leaflet, what fate awails the man who descends to such levels. Views of Others Senate Acted Wisely in Giving Pike Another Term Responsible citizens' will surely hope there's no repetition of the events surrounding Senate confirmation of Sumner T. Pike to 8 new Tour-year term on the Atomic Energy Commission. In approving Pike, 55 to 24, the Senate brushed aside an adverse 5 to 'I report handed down by the Senate members of the Joint Congressional Atomic Energy Committee. The four Republicans and one Democrat who opposed Pike in committee did not specify their objections. Instead they made only vague charges of incompetence to reporters outside the committee room. Pike's three fellow commissioners testified to his ability, loyalty and integrity. It was noted that he is the last remaining member of the original commission, and thus the only one who knows the whole atomic story from the start. No witnesses were called against Pike, and he himself was not asked to testify, though he was present at the committee session. Vet the adverse vote followed. It was no atonement for their previous failure that Pike's critics spelled out their objections a little, more in Senate floor debate. Then it was too late to hear the pertinent witnesses, to hear Pike's defense. From the debate it became clear that Senators Willikin and Johnson, the two Colorado senators, were angry at Pike because he favors hoarding Colorado uranium reserves for emergencies and using foreign supplies instead. Uranium, of course, is the basic material in present atomic work. Senator Hickenlooper's chief complaint appeals to be Pike's alleged laxity in an incident involving transmission of certain atomic information to Britain in 1948. Hickenlooper believes the information should not have been passed on and that Pike could have prevented it. Senator McMahon, chairman of the Joint Committee, told the Senate, however, that Pike's individual responsibility in the British incident was not so great as Hickenlooper suggests. Plainly both these complaints, and any others, ought lo have been threshed out at the committee level where there was some chance of arriving at the facts. In refusing to present their case there, the five objecting senators have been derelict in their duly. To say the least, their performance has been mysterious. The Senate acted wisely in ignoring their adverse report and giving Pike unolhcr term. U. S. Carries a Big Stick, But Speaks Too Softly The success with which the Russians have won acceptance for their lies about V. 5. "aggression" in Korea demonstrates the need lor prompt and decisive counter-measures \n the battle of ideas. Democracy has been whispering the truth while Communism thundered IU false message. This week (our eminent Americans urged Congress to take Uncle Sam's light from under trie bushel and let It shine where all the world can see. At hearings on Senator William BenUm's resolution for a "Marshall Plan of Ideas," favorable testimony was given by Secretary of Stntt Dean Ache-son, General George O, Marshall, General DwighL D. Eisenhower and the "Republican foreign policy leader, John Foster Dulles. All supported, as a matter of urgent necessity, the Agttfng up of a vast "truth propaganda" mechanism by the Federal Government. Mr. Dulles went so far as to say the issue o/ war or peace may depend upon America's effectiveness at ideological warfare during the next fow months. To the average U. S. citizen U Is incredible that any sane person would believe the out- ragcous Red myth of American "imperialist" designs m Korea. Ourjpcopln, conscious of- the sincerity of this nations-desire for peace, have a native tendency Lo expect that their altruism will be taken for granted by men of pood will everywhere on the globe. Unfortunately Iheve are vast regions, particularly in Asia, where little truth penetrates and where the inhabitants have had bitter experience with European colonial domination. In such areas, the Communists find ready acceptance for their distortions. Senator Benton's resolution was introduced ou March 22, well before the Korean crisis, but ils importance has been dramatized immeasurably by the happenings of the past 10 days. Assuming that Congress will act swiftly now that the consequences of past ha If-measures are crystal clear, Hie sad thing te that the so-called "Voice n[ America" program of the State Department pot, shabby treatment from the gentlemen on Capito!

L-ist, year the appropriation for the Slate Department's information rind educational activities—inchidmg llic radio ''Voice"—was only 234,000,000. There is consolation, as Mr. Achcson pointed nut, in the fact, that truth is on the side of the free nations.

A calorie is a unit of food well organized and powerful fight- value and refers to that portion of the food which supplies energy for muscular exertion. The caloric re- quiiemenU vary with the weight, age, and amount of muscular work done. For example, a man weighing about ISO pounds doing a moderate amount of muscular work ought to have about 3000 calories daily, of which 280 should he supplied by protein foods and the remainder from starches and fats. Larger persons in general require more calories. An active g5 person engaged in strenuous labor might use up as much HS 5000 calorics, whereas one doing sedentary work might need only 2500 calories or less. Calorie requirements for women average about 20 per cent less lhaji for men. The total calorie requirements of children are still less though they are more for their weight than adults. Thus, a boy about 10 years old usually needs from 2000 to 2700 calorics.

Milk is also a good source of protein and vitamins A and G. Cereals, besides being important sources of food energy (calories), supply iron, vitamin B] and other important ingredients of the diet. At least one serving of a whole grain cereal ought to be included in the daily diet, as of course should milk. Always Include Proteins Fruits and vegetables give the ing force. And this fact Is a lo measure the strength of other Red military machines In the great Asiatic theatre. Sovfel-led Asiatic Communism has al its call many millions of trained and equipped soldiers, 'a lot of whom are seasoned veterans. First to mind, of course, come Manchuria and China with almost limitless man-power. To Ihese must lie added Russia's Siberian armies. And Red forces long have been fighting in Indonesia and Malaya. All these troops could be thrown into action should Asia unhappily prove to be the major battleground between the Iwo ideological worlds And In this sense Korea may^jji: the proving-ground on which \W shall learn what ihe future holds for democracy. Already Ihe Western world Is confronted with, what may be to many a disconcerting discovery (hut the west has no exclusive claim to skill at arms. Perhaps more lo the point. Korea is demonstrating that Russia over a long period has been doing a very thorough job of organizing and training its satellite fighting forces. With a decisive battle boiling up in the Kum River area of South Korea, Washington Is said lo have been quietly Informing other Unllcd Nations members that their ground forces would be welcomed In Korea. And yesterday U.N. Secretary General Trygve Lie called on all members who have supported the pledge, lo slop Ihe Red aggression to send effective combat forces lo aid In the fighting. He stressed ground forces. Apropos of this need for aid.
