The price of peace is not counted alone in money. We must also be prepared to pay the price of unity. Some will balk at that payment in this election year, ]>articularly those who are actively engaged in politics. We are coming into perilous months during which political disunity on foreign policy could be a fatal weakness. Stalin is doubtless counting on our disunity. Hitler did. He thought that it would immobilize America while he conquered Kuroijc and the world. Ho thought our wartime presidential election would divide us and weaken our prosecution of the war. lie was wrong. We wore united on foreign policy then, and \ve can he again. It makes no difference whether one is a Democrat or Republican, or whether he likes or dislikes Mr. Truman. The (lueslion is whether we want to sec freedom destroyed in Europe anil Imperiled in Amerit"). It is Josef Stalin, not Hm'ry Truman, who really has dictated America's choice and America's policy. John Always Seems to Choose an Opportune Time VIEWS OF OTHERS €••••••••••••••••*•••••••••*•••••••' The Coal Strike Trumar/L Speech Points To "Get Tough" Pol icy Russia's aggressive menace to freedom has reached a point where it can be met in only two ways by the U. S. One is the Communist-isolationist way of appeasing and ignoring. The other •way is to be tough <md stay tough until Russia is ready to be reasonable. Most Americans, including those in :goy«rnment t - have slowly and reluctantly' Come to realize that the second choice : j',t ^ is necessary awl, if peace is to be preserved, inevitable. For two years otir government tried patience and concession. These only provoked Soviet leaders to further excesses. Then last June, with the announcement of the Marshall Plan. America began to abandon her passive role. Since then our government's words lo the Kremlin have been increasingly blunt. But bluntness has not stopped Russian aggression either, for the very good reason that our tough policy was only a policy of words. - So the program that President Truman outlined in his speech to Congress •was as necessary and inevitable as the policy to which the government is committed. It is not a complete program, but at least it would give the basic minimum of substance to support our strong words. It appears that the timing of the President's speech was dictated less by Russia's recent actions than by the action of five friendly states, Great Britain, France and the Benelux nations. As Mr. Truman pointed out, those five stales were signing a 50-year agreement for economic co-operation and mutual defense at the time of his speech to Congress. The President could not at that moment commit the IK S. to military as well as economic aid for those countries. But it is clear that democratic unity abroad is meaningless without American support. The encouragement that Mr. Truman's message obviously gave five governments may encourage others to speed toward the hoped-for goal of a united non-Communist Europe. Naturally the request for action on • UMT and a temporary return of selective service will meet opposition. Yet even the objectors should realize that the building of our armed forces lo their minimum peacetime strength doe not mean war. Only the most wishful- Blinded or those who refuse to recognize the clear pattern of Soviet aggression cm believe that strong words and weak defenses will make the Russian leaders retreat, or.even 'pause. UMT and * temporary draft will cost I money. It will cost more to modernize aad strengthen our Air Forces, and con- Thc coal strike—for it Is no less a strike for not having been formally ordered— Is capricious, irresponsible and unnecessary. There Is justice on Mr. Lewis' demand for lair pensions for aging miners. But to obtain justice it Is not necessary to permit a strike which cripples American industry at a time when it should run lull blast to curb Inflation at home and supply goods for our democratic allies in Europe. The strike is in violation of the spirit and letter of the contract which the union signed with the coal operators last July and which docs not expire until June 30. Yet more than half the nation's soft coal, miners are out on strike. If Mr. I>cwis would honor his contract and submit his case to public opinion, he could obtain fair action on his pension demand without Interrupting the flow of coal. But that Is not John L. Lewis' way. He prefers to dramatize himself by the ingenious means of a general stoppage of work which is not ordered from above but "just happens." Whether sixm- taneous or Inspired, this Is a strike subject to action under Ihe Tnfl-Hartley law. The Taft-IIartlcy Act provides machinery for dealing with strikes which imperil the national health and safety, as this strike docs. First, the President appoints a board of Inquiry to examine the issues In dispute. This bourd would make a /actual report, with no proposal for a settlement. Upon receiving this report, the President is empowered to instruct the Attorney General to obtain a temporary Injunction against the strike. The Injunction would remain in effect for not more than 80 days.. After the issuance oJ the injunction, the board of Inquiry would reconvene anci at the end of 60 days submit a new report on the strike Issues and negotiations for a settlement. If by this time no agreement were reached, the National Labor Board would within five days order a secret election to determine whether the workers were willing to accept the last offer of the employers. Whichever way the vote went, the Injunction would then be dismissed. This strike is one in which public opinion is peculiarly fitted to bring about a settlement. The disagreement arise. 1 ; from the United Mine Workers' demand for a slOO-n-month pension for miners who have readied 60 after at least 20 years In the mines. For men who accept the gruelling labor and Ihe perils of coal mining, lliis does not seem an exorbitant demand. It seems reasonable, at least, as a gradual goal. But it was only last July that Mr. Lewis won his demand for welfare royalties of JS cents a ton on ail coal mined by the U.M.W.A. He won a royally of 5 cents a ton lo pay indemnities for death or Injury ol miners and pensions for those becoming sick or disabled. The operators also agreed to pay 10 cents a Ion to go Into another fund which Mr. Lewis now wants enlarged sufficiently to pay the $lcO-a-im»ith general pensions. To do this, the royally would have to be • raised lo perhaps 30 or 40 cents. About $35.003.000 has accumulated In this fund. Mr. Lewis charges that it has been impossible to adopt a plan for Us expenditure because of the operators' stubbornness. The fund, however, had three trustees, one each for the miners, Ihe operators and the public. Until the public member resigned In disgust two months ago, the miners could have obtained action at any time by reaching common ground with him. They could get action now by demanding that the vacancy be filled and then agreeing with Ihe public members on terms. There have been new liidlcalions ot laic thai John L Lewis Millers from Stalincsnuc delusions. The miners' nmgnzlnc, which he firmly controls, carries headlines such as "Lewis Freed Slaves as Lincoln Did.' "Lauds Lewis as a Orcat Leader, Negotiator," "Lewis Has Always Led Us Right." A verse declares l^wis "leads his people like Moses of old." There Is nothing Moses-like In John Lewis' present role. To threaten Ihe comilry with an Industrial shutdown in Die present crucial situation as a shabby and unpatriotic performance.

Jordan, M, D, Written for NEA Service There are smal! glands lying next to the kidneys called the adrenal ot suprarenal glands. Since there are two kidneys, there are also two adrenals. They belong to the glands of internal secretion. They contain several kinds of cells which torn hormones which flow Into the blood. Addlson's disease is a relatively rare condition, in which these glands are severely damaged or destroyed, usually by tuberculosis. It received Its name from a famous English physician. Thomas Addison, who first described the condition in 1855. Skin Becomn Brownish Addison described the characteristic symptoms as anemia, languor or general weakness, feeble beat of 'the hcrt .irritability ot the stomach, and a peculiar brownish change in the color of the skin. General weakness and the deep yellowish brown coii/r of ihe skin, which "is due *.o deposits of pigment, are particu- arly characteristic. Most patients ose weight and have a low blood pressure.
