Gannon, Not Candy, for Morale Among the reiwrts filtering back from Army headquarters in the Far East is one which tells us that the military has moved swiftly to set up post exchanges and establish other "morale- building" facilities in embattled Korea. Looking at pictures of American soldiers shot in the face by savage North .Koreans, reading the regular accounts oC our troops' withdrawals under superior enemy fire and weight of metal, we couldn't help wondering if morale wouldn't be boosted more by a few "long Tom" artillery pieces than by PX's complete with candy and chewing gum. Views of Others The GOP and McCarthy Republican Senator Thye wants a conference of OOP senators to thresh out « responsible party policy on "Communists In government." But senator Mlllikln of Colorado observed that the Republican Policy Committee, lias discussed the matter and decided against taking a stand regarding the charges of Senator McCarthy that there are Communists and fellow travelers In the State Department. The position o! the Republican senator* acems to be that they won't throw In actively with Senator McCarthy bill i( he can strike some poll- deal pay dirt they will be glad to get the benefit of what is dug up. — ARKANSAS GAZEtTE Byrnes Quoljfied to Lead De-centralization Fight t James F. Byrnes, sure now to be governor of South Carolina, has won the 'eristic* he sought to combat what h* •e«« »« the excessive growth of govern- »«nt in Washington. President Truman and his chief supporter* ncoff st the notion that power hM becom* too greatly centralized in Wt« capital. Many leading Republicans, on the ethtr hand, have been shouting for years th»t the federal government is devouring »11 before it, that this trend can only lead to a crushing of individual liberties and the establishment of socialism. Unfortunately, the very petition of this cry has tended to weaken its force steadily through the years. Voters going to the polls in national elections have not seemed greatly moved by GOP alarms. • • The 71-year-old Byrnes is far from being the first Democrat to join tl is debate. But no man at once so distinguished and so well-versed in the practice of politics has ever taken up the fight. With service on the Supreme Court, in the Senate as secretary of state, and as war mobilizer and "assistant president" behind him, there are no mere political laure,ls Byrnes could seek which would be worth his trouble. It is fair to assume, therefore, that he will take up the issue of over-centralization in Washington strictly on its merits. Into that contest he will throw his admittedly great prestige, which goes well beyond the limits of party. If there is truth in the claims that Washington is over-reaching, monopolizing the vital sources of government revenue, bulldozing its way through powers that rightly belong to the state and cities, every freedom-loving American • aught to hope Jimmy Byrnes can help establish the facts beyond question. And if those facts can be proved, we should further wish him well in any efforts he may undertake to redress the balance and return to local and state governments the powers they have lost. In the event it comes down to that, Byrnes could not hope to do the job alone, nor would he likely tiy. But his stature among the governors of the '18 stales will be high; he will be able to enlist their vigorous support provided his cause is just and his fight one that should be made for the good of the country. It's hard to see where a better champion than Byrnes could be found for R point of view that has been crying for responsible leadership for nearly two decades, Cost of Living Turns Upward Again The greatest external danger to our country Is Soviet Russia. 'The greatest internal danger is price Inflation, of the two probably the latter Is the greater menace. Continued Inflation would be »n extreme, possibly fatal, handicap to our prosecution of either cold or hot war. And even assuming that we won Worlrt War ni despit* the drawback o[ inflation, we might find our whole economic sti-ucture tumbling down In * postwar boom-and-bust. So Tuesday's scare headlines over the upward turn of basic commodity prices were fully justified. Something must be done to *top -the trend. The best method would be a nationwide gentlemen> agreement unionjr Industrial and agricultural producers, distributors and merchants, and labor anrt the service branches lo stand pat on present costs and prices. Possibly this is too much to ask of human nature. Tf the upward trend continues then Congress should act quickly to freeze all coftls and prices where they are. At present, we are at a dangerously high level but It \f> one in which a fairly stable position has been reached In the relation of wages, agricultural costs and cost of living. This was the simple, over-all procedure suggested by Elder Statesman Bernard Baruch at the be- ginninif'of World War II. The political pressure of organl?«d minority groups was too great. The line was broken. In contrast Canada adopted this policy and, thoughj.'tjbt_line was broken there in less degree, it waA-fairly effective. Such procedure in the face of present conditions Is the only one that will avoid not merely disastrous inflation, but all the dissensions that attend it. If the present war situation becomes more critical, and a. general boom becomes evident. Congress should act and the public should give it wholehearted support, —DALLAS MORNING NEW3 So They Say Just as Sure as Night Follows Day World Must Not Lose Track of War Purpose Ttw DOCTOR SAYS 'et«r tdson's Washington Column — Korean }Var Sparks Demand For Vast Arms Expenditures WASHINGTON — IKRAI — t>»- mand that the. United states start ending 25 per cent of Its national ncome on military defense are be- ng heard in Washington. The idea thab this country must match Soviet Russia's armed strength and mobilize for any emergency. This is not all Pentagon propaganda, either, but civilian advice to the White House. Best information available is that one-fourth of the Soviet economy is devoted to Us military estabnsh- ment. In terms of U. S. dollars at official exchange rates, the Russian national income put at $65.000,X>,00. Of this, the iqulvalent of 515.300,000,000 Is burl- feted for the Army, Sa.vj and Air Torce. On a dollar-for-dollar basis, this U about, what the U. S. Department of Defense will have to .spend this year. Present appropriations, subject to later revisions, are In round numbers $13,000.000,000 for the Department of Defense, plus Sl.OOO,- 000.000 foreign military assistance and another billion for atomic energy The American national income, however, is $220,000,000,000 a year. The U. S. $15,000,000.000 defense appropriations are only a little less than seven per cent of this total. What is now being advocated by some of the highest gvoernment advisers is that national defense spending be increased to a fourth of the national income, or J55,- 000,000.000 a year. In other words, step up defense spending from three to four times. Seen As War Insurance rats are one of the three great :inds of foodstuffs, the other two being starches and proteins, puts are not used-by the body as easily the starches or proteins. A fairly oomplex chemical procrss im to take place before they can be burned up like the others. Fats used by the human body are generally divided Into those of vegetable origin and those of animal origin, \targarlne, many nuts, cocoa, and th« like, are examples -of vegetable fats. Animal faU include butter, cream and fat meat, such as bacon. Butter and cream are well worth I white, in addition to their fat value, because they are good carriers of vitamin A. which Is so important to good health. Most ol' the other fab carry very little of this vitamin, Fnts are present in many parts of the body. They make excellent heat insulators. They cushion vital rgans and when stored, (at fur- lishcs a compact form of energy which can be drawn upon «t need. Certain fats are necessary to the tructure of the cells which make iving possible. Some lats »re In ground nerve tissues. While they are Important to the body in all of these ways, large quantities; of fat are not needed, and if loo much is eaten and lored, it can be a disadvantage. Furthermore, the starchy foods can be transformed by the body nto faLs.and so make fatty foods ess necessary. Fats In Proper Die* Nevertheless, the normal diet should contain some fats. For person eating a 2500-calorie diet, or example (which Is about average for a reasonably active person), about SO grams nf fat a day misht included. This would be about equivalent of five pats of butter one Inch square and one-half inch thick. For people doing heavy labor more fats are. desirable as they furnish such a good source o energy. The fats formed outside the human body carry small quantities of a desirable material which has a vitamin-like /actor, A per son who is on a diet for obesity and may be taking only 600 to 900 calories a day may be restricted to » fat intake ol only 20 to 25 grams daily. As in so many things. It is 4ft- sirable to have some fats and the right ones in the diet, but not to eat too much. West's high cards would account for the rest of the tricks. South would make only his two top trumps and the ace of hearls! The penalty would be 1100 points instead of only 200. The point 1 that JCH» overlooked is that you cannot punish a low contract It you allow declarer to make his low .trumps by ruffing. You must lead trumps at every opportunity In order to draw declarer's trumps. When East passed one spade rfou- I bled for penalties, he meant that j his trumps were so long and strong IN HOLLYWOOD tty Knkine Johnson NKA Stall Correspondent Totalitarianism has made a mockery of the forms of justice.

HOM'l'WOOD on rage 13 Main argument for this drastic step is simply that there mustn't be any more Koreas. The U. S must take the initiative away from Russia. The North Korean aggression has changed evaluation of Russia's strategy. Heretofore, it was assume: that the Russians would not be ready for a world war before 1952 It has long been implied lha Russia would not have a stockpile of atomic bombs, nor enough long range bombers to insure that even with losses, enough Red bombers could get through U: S. defenses to hit key targets like New York, Washington. Pittsburgh. Detroit and Sault Ste. Nfarie locks. The new evaluation is that the Russians may how consider themselves so strong they can risk outbreak of a major war at any time. To meet this situation, it, is Se« EDSON on Paje 12 < that he could afford to have trumps t one thing. There s one less than j , ed through hta Tnat , ls the 8Cn eral ou think. . . .. , !meaning of a penalty pass. The cause of this little exchange | ^ . was the hand shown today. Joe, lolding the West cards, had made take-out double of the opening >id of one spade. East had passed. T penalties. Joe opened the king of clubs, lolding the first trick. East signaled with, the deuce of clubs, nil Joe continued the suit anyway. South ruffed the second club with the four of spades, and returned a low heart. West put up ,he jack of hearls. but East overtook with the queen of hearts to lead the queen of spades. South won with the ace of spades, cashed the ace of hearts, and ruffed a heart in dummy. He returned to his hand by ruffing a club with the six of spades. By this time he had already won five tricks, ami the king of trumps was a sure sixth trick. That was all he managed to make, and he was therefore set, one trick, for a loss of 200 points. Hard Luck Joe was right, of course, when he said that a pan- alty of 200 points was poor compensation for the game that they could have made. Somehow or other, East was not pleased with the result and seemed to blame BY JVWITT M»<-KRN7.H AP Foreign Affair* Analyst We can crush Red ngsression In Korea and other parts ot Asia by force of «rms, but, «f. shall have failed of our real purpose m we also demonstrate to the un privileged millions that our rt ocracy better meets their needs than does Coinmum;m. For after all, Ihls l.« mi Ideological war we are fighting, although that fact sometimes geU obscured In the smoke of military strife. Of course the Western world on the whole recognizes the totalitarian evils of Communism. We knou- that it aims at fierce regimentation o! Ihe people. However, the primitive masses o( Asia, who are treading the paths their ancestors trod centuries ago, don't know what the Red Ism really •neans. They only know what Bol- hevlst agents tell them: that Communism l.s the savior of downtrodden humanity, that It will lake anrfs from the rich and Rive to the poor, that It will heap their table* with plenty. Fisci»allnjr Prftmlswi These specious promises arc fascinating to underprivileged, folk, 've spent a lot of lime In the Orient and can tell you from personal ob- servatfon that there are In that part of the world untold million! peasants who never know anything but hunger. Naturally they think with their nellies. And broadly speaking IKlj this basis thai the Ideolo^Bp approach must be made to them. They want lo know what democracy win do to Improve their lowlr lives. Let's take » specific example— China, which currently Is under- control of a Communist government, and previously v-'nf. ruled by Chiang Kai-Shek's Nationalist regime. And here let It fte pointed out that regimentation doesn't mean popular support. The fact that the people formerly obeyed the Nationalist government, and now obey the Red regime, doesn't necessarily mean that they approve of either, People I,e« Ool As a matter of fact the ordinary people never have participated in their governments. Asia as a whole is just starting out In political education. The usual attitude Is one of sufferance. The rank and file accept what fate hands them, but their loyalty to to the Ideo- them the better Today 15 Years Ago The first cotton boll of the season brought to the courier News office was shown today by R.

Most of this huge population lives by farming, and the number of people Is loo big In relation to' he land available. Generally speak- ng the farms are less than two cres in size, and these, are worke-d by hand rather than with mcchan- al equipment. Jft Chinese Peasants Burden ^^ Even at best such little farms couldn't produce ' much, but that only part of the Chinese peasant's burden. He has been loaded down with taxation, exacted not only by the provincial government nit by.the war lords In control of tis part of the country. Some nf the war lords, have been .aking as high as 75 per cent of th» peasant's livelihoods, In cash or In crops. Communism has met this «Hu»- tion by promising a redistribution of Itvno; rule by the proletariat; and national sovereignly. Those ar« /me phrases and are likely to catch on. until the common man find* out that he has been bilked—when It may be too late for him lo effect • change. So democracy must back Its Ideological campaign In Asia with concrete programs tor a new vorld.
