Truth About .War Wanted Even When the News Is Bad In any war, the problem of security Inevitably leads to conflict between the military and the front-line correspondents trying to report the fighting as they nee it. This Korean war presents special difficulties. Officially it isn't a war, -so , there'i no censorship.-And events have moved so swiftly there's been no chance : to give the field correspondents positive : guidance through regular briefings on the broad picture of the campaign. ~A'd clto these factors the extremely confused and fluid fighting that has marked the war so far, and you have the ingredients for trouble. It has already developed. General MacArthur, Far East commander, severely criticized I). S. war correspondents for exaggerated and distorted accounts of the battle. Following this, his press relations officer banned briefly two prominent news agency correspondents from the Korean front. The officer conceded the factual truth of their dispatches but complained the stories "made the Army look bad" and gave aid and comfort to the enemy." MacArthur lifted the ban on the correspondents a couple of days later. But in the light of ail the circumstances, the complaints seem unduly harsh. MacArthur appears to have had a just complaint, for instance, against the newsman who reported a "lost battalion" wiped out. The man in the field took the word of excited Gl's and when actual casualties were counted they totaled only 21. U. S. newsmen have gone to the Korean fighting front at risk of their lives to tell the American people what really i s happening. At this writing two are dead and several have been wounded. Admittedly front-line reporters see and hear only what is within their narrow range. They grasp isolated fragments of the full story. Since by definition war is confusion, these accounts . are seldom likely to be neat and ordered. Nevertheless the flesh and blood meaning of war can't be gained by people at home in any other way. it's horror, its danger, its frequent futility are not spelled out in cautiously worded official communiques, written far from the sound and smell of the battlefield. The communiques are necessary to provide the detached, rounded, calmer view of the fighting. The front-line accounts should be fitted into that wider frame by all of us at home. Sometimes the field reports, taken together, tell the overall story more quickly and realistically than do Hie guarded communiques. Occasional exaggerations excepted, this has frequently been the case in the Korean war. Mae- Arthur's steady optimism up to now ha* proved unwarranted. Hard decisions and possibly heavy sacrifices Jay ahead for the American people. They can act wisely only if they know all the truth that is compatible with genuine military security. What we know of the truth today'is largely what our war correspondents have told us, at great peril to themselves, A gen- -eral whiplashing by the military is hardly a fair reward for this service. A Healthy Sign The Bonn government of West Germany has acted to place the German people once more witliin the broad family of peace-loving European nations. H has approved joining the fledging Council of Europe. Not since 1936, when Nazi Germany stalked out of the League of Nations in one of; the preludes to World War II, has this nation been linked in any way with an international body devoted to peace and order. The action in Bonn is but a bare beginning. West Germany is half a country, and the Council of Europe the merest shell of a European parliament. Yet the signs are healthy. All the freedom-loving peoples should hail this step. They shoud hope, too, that it is only the forerunner of others which some day will carry a united Germany of the democratic nations. Views of Others U.N. Troop Response Will Measure Force The United Nations' appeal tor ground trcop aid In hatting the invasion of South Korea recognizes alike the gravity of the military situation and the responsibility or U.N. to a small rmlion attacked from without. The call may have the effect, in addition of testing the dcgreo of responsibility /e!6 by the member countries. Tills Is not an academic question. It is the harsh matter of sacriticlng blood and bone, and In th« case of near neighbors of the Kremlin It fs what is known in the parlance as sticking the neck out. Secretary Trygve Lie's sober announcement may nol be regarded « a clarion call. Like those summoned to the feast In the Master's parable, it would not be surprising for il to be reported that "they all with one consent began to make excuse." It will be pleasing if it Is otherwise but the show of force Is on the other side and doubtless there will be any number of reasons for other U.N. members to argue that Uncle Sam should bear the whole brunt. But If this should prove true, the future of U.N. will be bleak Indeed. It is essential that the U.N. flag should be carried by a representative U.N. force. This Ls not a United Statej£s"arrcl. This is the first attack by aggression against the outpost of civilization. It is our battle in the sense that we want to survive, too. But it is the battle of every free land. They may not see clearly tlmt they stand at Armagedtlon. But they do. The closest analogy Is with'the Initial Invasion of Europe by Genghis Khan when Christian princes continued their minor quarrels while the Invader picked them off one by one. Not their defenses but the unexpected death of Oenglils prevented Europe from being overrun. The Mongol flood threatened Europe no more than its Slavic counterpart throughout the world today. Miracles do not always come in pairs. DALLAS MORNING NEWS Use the T-Bomb Already suggestions are put forward that the United States should use atomic bombs in Korea. So far the proposal is making little headway, even when qualified. with the statement that it should only be done 1C the North Koreans refused to withdraw after due warning. This mention of a warning suggests a kind of bombing which should encounter few objections. Why not use. the T-bomb? This was described the other day by General Eisenhower when he said: The truth can almost be classified as our T-bomb In this war. It can be won by truth. He was speaking, of course, of the whole "war of ideas,'. 1 and General Sarnoff has just suggested that America should really carry the airwaves battle to the Soviet with a 5200,000,000 ring of radio stations. He points out that Russia is now sending into the world 832 hours of program, against America's 102 hours. This Icoks like a good long-range project. But meanwhile lei's have an intensified bombardment of Korea with the T-bomb. This should not be regarded as a propaganda attack. It Is »n education campaign, designed not to Influence men wrongly, but to give them the light of truth and let them find their own way. To this end let the truth be poured In by every means. Radio programs and leaflets dropped from planes are only the most obvious methods, others can be found. Military measures must be continued, but the most lasting victories— and by far the cheapest—could be won with General "Ike's" T-bomb. —CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR So They Say The nation's food production and reserve stocks are in as good shape, If nol belter, than at any lime In hislory.-Secrctary of Agriculture Charles F.

In the first place. 11 must be fully - recognized that tlic first Lime in the ivorkt's history SO nations — out of 59 UN members — liuve agreed on sanctions against an aggressor. The 5S Peter Kdson have agreed to furnish such aid put frouli Korean invasion of South Korea. The most optimistic Interpretation of this action is that it may mark the beginning of the curt for Soviet initiative in world-wide aggression. If these first sanctions can be made to stick, it may mean that the United Nations Itself will henceforth be able to take the initiative in maintaining peace. Tlie bis; question now is. can this bloc of 56 pence-loving nations be made to stick together? One of the chief objectives of Moscow propaganda has been to ,. i break up this combination.

Writ.en for NKA Service Today's questions all deal with various problems of diet. Q— Is there a good substitute for starches and sugars, yet low Ui calories? a.R. A—Customary drinks ' like coffee can be sweetened with sacclikirin Jnslead of sugar. Saccharin doe« no* contain any calories. There are a number of so-called diabetic foods Ihe market which use substitutes for starches and yet do nut contain nearly as many calories as starches do. Essentially the person who is on a strict diabetic diet lias made the substitution which you mention. Q—Ls there any substitute for a coffee-craving that can be used to break a coffee-drinking habit? E.S.M A—The caffeine contained in coffee is a drug with definite oti the heart and nervous system. This can and does produce a sort of r ravin; in some people. There arc, hou'cver, a number of substitutes which are somewhat similar to coffee but do nol contain caffeine or only small amounts of that drug. Q—Is there anything which can be done about my stomach bloa6.ii? after eating or drinkin»? T.A.S. A—The most common cause of blonUngr, or as il is often called, gas en the stomach, is the unconscious swallowing of air. Many people— particularly nervous ones—swalluw atr after ealing or drinking in this manner. The habit may be difficult (o break but one cannot swallow air with the mouth open, so that sitting for a while with (he mouth «pe:i af(er meals maj* prevent this so-called bloating. Q—The foods which I most like to eat bring on constipation. They are mostly dairy products such as cheese, eggs, milk and buttermilk. What should I do? Mrs. F. F.

The first Is not to cat those foods which you like but which cause you difficulty; the second is to eat so many fresh foods and vegetables with them that they trill counteract tht con- slioalins effects.

South was greedy, and he should clarer hart his work cut out tor him. South drew three rounds of trumps, discarding a low club rrom dummy on the third trump. He then led a club to dummy, cashing the ace and king of that suit and ruffing a third round. He had hoped for a 3-3 break of the clubs. In order to find a parking place for his nine of hearts. When the clubs failed to break, South led his last trump. At this point, South had a trump, a heart, and a diamond. West had to come down to two cards, and had to save a club to prevent dummy's six of clubs from becoming established. He therefore saved only one diamond. Dummy could then afford to discard the last club, saving only the king and three of diamonds. It was now East's turn to discard. He held the ten of hearts, and two diamonds. If he discarded the ten of hearts, South's nine of hearts would become good. East therefore also discarded a diamond. At this point, South could lead his low diamond to dummy's king, dropping nil of the remaining diamonds. Dummy's three of diamonds took the last trick. Perhaps there really is a moral in this tale.

It Is anybody's guess whether tM& presages armed conflict In U.W cockpit of southeastern Europe or U merely a war of nerves. However, it seems to be working up to * climax rapidly, and It ha» the United Nations and the foreign of/ices of the democracies anxiously burning midnight oil. For many weeks now Eastern Europe has been seething with reports of provocative incident*. These have been aimed mostly at Marshal Tito's Yugoslavia—the bad lad of Communism, Romanian Movement* Belgrade has charged that Romania was carrying out suspicion* military movements along the Yugoslav border—that Hungary waj forcibly removing civilians along the Hungarian-Yugoslav frontier— tht Russia was pursuing a warmongering campaign against Yugoslavia—that the Soviet Union actually was moving troops in neighboring Bulgaria and building military bridges across the Danube. One of the most arresting of this grim procession of reports came out of Turkey only a few days ago. This was that there was growing Rujstanization of Bulgarian military forces and that there were creasing troop movements on Macedonian frontier. Bulgarian Hot Spot Bather naturally speculation among observers Is Istanbul turned on the question of whether the Bulgarians were getting set to conquer Yugoslav and Greek Macedonia and unite it with Bulgarian Macedonia. This thought tits in with the current warning from the United Nations Balkan commute, reporting from Switzerland, that the Ru»- slan-led Cominform may be plnn-' ning an atack on Greece. And what would be the significance of §uch an operation? Well, for one thing It would create another great conflagration for the United statej and the other Western Allies to deal with. It would compel them to divide their military energy between the Asiatic upheaval and Europe. However, that Isn't the whole story. If a Bulgarian attack on Greek and Yugoslav Macedonia were successful it would be a serious territorial lav; to Greece snd Yugoslavia, as well as a blow to prestige it not only would add W Bulgaria's size and strength but would give her direct access to the Aegian Sea. No Overlorrlship Of course no overlordshlp would be acceptable to the Macedonian»j»t.-> They are a liberty' loving folk wiijr* hae fought fiercely for their independence through the generations. Still, on would suppose that they would rather be united under one overlord than be split up amony three, as at present. On that bast? they might even give their support to a Bulgarian military operation which would unite them.' All the foregoing may provide the .age^ setting for a so-Called Communist Party convention which U being held now in Eastern Berlin. This has brought together lied leaders from 18 nations and many of -them belong to the powerful Cominform.
