India's Effort at Mediation Weil-Meant, But Misguided India'* efforts to mediate the Korean war are well-meaning but misguul- •d. •An exchange of notes between Prim* Minister Nehru and Premier Stalin brought forth ,a typical piece of Russian j blackmail: Let the United Nations seat Communist China and steps might be taken toward settling the war. '"This is the effrontery of the pick- who, caught stealing your wallet, wants pocket who, caught stealing yonr wallet, wants to exact a • price for handing it back. The Soviet Union unsuccessi'uly tried the same game during the Berlin blockade. Again this time the answer, from the United States and other UN countries, has properly been a firm "No." Secretary of State Acheson told IS'ehru UN members are not agreed on 'whether Red China should have Nationalist China's scat on the UN Security Council. (This country disapproves but has let it known it would not veto the . Communists' admission.) Said Acheson to the Indian leader: "I know you will agree that the decision should not be dictated by an unlawful aggression or by any other conduct which would subject he United Nations to coercion and duress." The UN has ordered a cease-fire in the Korean war and directed the invading North Koreans to withdraw behind the 38th parallel which is their border. We have said all along, and now reiterate, that such action is the rock-bottom minimum we will expect before mediating the Korean problem or discussing any other issue with Russia. To wander one inch from that insistence would be to apiiL-iise Uussia, to reward aggression and encourage further Soviet violations of the peace. Stalin's note to Nehru on Ked China is pure camouflage. Recognition of the Communist regime by the UN might well have been achieved this fall had not 'the Korean war intervened. Sentiment among several key nations was building up toward a favorable action, spurred perhaps by U. S. notice that we would not oppose it. Stalin did not have to order his North Korean puppets to attack South Korea to gain UN acceptance of Communist China. Nehru's good intentions simply gave the Soviet premier an opportunity to confuse world opinion, to pose as peace-minded at the very moment lie is pressing aggression. To most of the free world his scheme is as transparent as the Russian claim that Moscow is not guiding the North 1 Koreans. But Nehru, so desperately eager to steer a middle course and avoid . offending anyone, is blinding himself to real Soviet purposes. Perhaps a Russian move' against Indo-China, Iran or Yugoslavia would clear his vision, The cause of freedom badly needs India's strengh and prestige; it should not be dissipated in futile attempts to bargain with a blackmailer. THURSDAY, JULY 27, 1950 Now o Fashion Fight If yon gel lira!, reading of the Korean war, you can always train your sights on another battle which is nosv raging in the European theater. It's a fashion war between London and Paris. First accounts seem to indicate that Paris was the aggressor. Normally the two cities time their fashion displays so they don't overlap. But this year Paris dress designers decided to begin their summer style show right while the London performance is'on. So far, however, there is no hint that the dispute has reached the United Nations Security Council. If it ever docs, there oiigh to'be a rush of volunteers for duly oh a commission to study the matter. A commission report direct from the modeling front would take a lot of weight off the UN's drooping shoulders. Views of Others How to Do Better The -peril to decent government and to individual riuhls represented by McCarthyism is bad enough. And it is revealing itself more and more lor what It Is. It holds a danger for on« party as much as. for ine other. For that reason, the Democratic majority on the Tydings committee could well have presented Its findings minus many of its adjectives. A reasoned restraint would have given less provocation for a counterattack to those Republican* who hart run alongside the McCarthy bandwagon when it looked as though it might go somewhere. To acerbate the McCarthy incident can only hurl the country. We are unwilling to be a party to It. But (here is a lot In the Tydlngs report and the Lodge dissent that deserves promoting. First there is the recommendation that the Investigation be turned over to a nonparlisan commission of distinguished citizens appointed jointly by the President and .Congress. In thl« both the majority and Senator Lodge strongly concurred—as the senator put it, to get "a clean ending to the whole business, let the chips fall where they may." The Democratic majority went along with th« , Republican dissenter In urging, that all administrative departments improve their security systems protecting confidential information. The majority recommended* and Senator Lodge concurred (in more general terms, that congres- ,slonal committees conduct' any future loyalty probes without public hearings and with greatest restraint, On the.other hand, It called for a statute which wouJstpVcvent a witnesses' abuse ol constitutional Immunity. •- , Finally, the majority asks that Congress undertake a study of the uses and abuses of Its own Immunity from civil suits In order that "this, privilege extended to us should not become «" license for the character assassination of American citizens."

But today's wholesale prices arc still about seven per cent below the peak of September 1348. There is some prospect that meat prices will go even higher in the next few months. Department of Agriculture meat experts say there are two reasons why this could be so, though . they are making no prophecies that, It will be so. One reason Is largely psychological. People get paniky. Those with deep freezes start loading up, though this Isn't a good time to buy. The second, and most important reason is that this is the normal period of reduced livestock slnugh- lering. Meat reserves In cold storage are usually withdrawn by the big parking houses at this time of year, to meet current demand. Prices nnr- mally advance from June to September, when tile spring pig crop comes to market. j Prices Should Come T)own In Fall I Meat prices normally drop during the fall and winter months. Unless there are some new and unusual demands lor meat, prices should decline this fall. For there Is no meat shortage, the experts Insist. Livestock numbers are high. There are good grain crops in prospect to fatten them for market. Meat supplies in cold storage are high.. The supply situation is far better than in 1941. Up to mid-July, the Army Quartermaster Corps^which buys ; for all the armed service's—had made no extra puschases. That situation is subject to change momentarily, however. And extra heavy Army purchases at this time could shoot the price still higher. With Europe's own meat supplies greatly Improved in the last two years, less U.S. meat will be required lor export. That should leave more for increased Army purchases and for home consumption. All meat statistics cook down ultimately to per capita consumption. For 1943, U.S. meat consumption was 146 pounds per person. It is running at about the same rate this year—maybe > little higher. Beef consumption may be down a couple of pounds to 62 per person. Veal, lamb, and mutton will be-about the same—13 pounds. People Bating: Butler Pnrk Cuts Pork consumption is running a- Th. DOCTOR SAYS Burns or scalds ot the skin account for many death* and serious or unsightly scars. Most of them j could be prevented by a little caution. Also prompt and Intelligent emergency treatment can often help to avoid the most dangerouj effects of heat. The damage done depends upon Ihe surface Involved, the heat ol the. object causing the Injury, and the, \ length of time during which the j skui has been in contact with the source of heat. Hot solids or Uq- ,' uMs are the most common causes of burns. Sliding doivn a rope, chemicals, electricity, and such agents as ultraviolet lamps, X-rays, and even sunshine also cause particular kinds of burns. In first degree burns there I* merely some reddening of the skin similar to that of mild aunburn. Second degree burns cause, actual blistering of the skin; the skin over the blister has been completely Jellied Third degree burns involve not only the skin itself, but alw the tissues lyinj; beneath it which are killed and charred. Slight burns—except those caused by chemicals, X-rays, and unusual types ot burning—can be treated by any one of several excellent ointments. These ointments. If they do not have to be applied to too large a skin surface, reduce the pain and aid the healing. They fhould not be used, however, If the burned surface extends over a wide area of the skin. They can rto real harm In such burns rather th»n any good. For severe burns, including second and third degree burns, the advice of a physician should be sought as soon as possible. Until he come,*, it is wise not to do too much. Loose clothing should be cut away from the burned area, but I/ any Is sticking, it should be left where it Is and only the clothing afeund the burned area be cut away, !>rave Bad Burn* Alone If there is likely to be delay In the arrival of medical care for someone who has been severely burned, a warm compress soaked in tannic arid solution or -strong tea can be placed on the burned area. Large burned surfaces should not have greases, oils, or ointments put on them. These are difficult to remove, may produce pairi, and often interfere with what the physician wishes to da later.

For there Is a blK pig crop and the price is relatively lower. Also there is a trend towards eating "higher on the hog." Hams, loin roasts and chops sell better than bacon, fat back and jowls. This change In eating habits has had its effect on the pig-raising business. Hogs have been marketed lighter and leaner—from 180 to 240 pounds, instead of up to 300 pounds This, too, has had its effect on lowering the price of pork. There was a heavy slaughter' of beef in 1947. But herds have been built up since then and the number of cattle on feed last Jan. 1 was over. 4,550,000—an all-time record. Sheep and lamb numbers have been declining, since the war. Numbers were built up to nearly 7,000.000 head, 1812 through 1346. But on Jan. 1 sheep and lambs on feed numbered only 3,700,000. When mil's said and done, however, memt consumption and prices depend on earning power and tn- l immediately and continuously with large quantities of water until all traces of the chemical have been remc/ved.

He could defeat the contruct only if his side could win a spade trick, since heart tricfcs were quite evidently out, of the question.

By DeWITT MaeKENZIE AP Fereifn Affairs Analyst America's sudden shift from a program emphasizing economic well-being to a tremendously costly rearmament project, coupled.^ith a similar move among her AlJJtle Pact Allies m Western Enrop>, puts an entirely new complexion on life for the democracies—and It Isn't a rosy one. No, that's not predicting another global war. On the contrary, this rearmament Is calculated to forestall any possible aggression. It Is recognition of the increasingly obvious fact that military weakness among Ihe democracies now would be an Invitation to attack. The rape of Korea has been fresh warning of Moscow's 'project of wearing us down economically and militarily by Isolated assaults. Until recently the Western Allies had figured that It's the old dlvlde- and-conquer scheme, and numerous similar Red attacks appear In the offing. Throat Maj- Be Cut As a matter of fact Communism may have cut Us own throat by the Korean aggression. Had It hot been for Korea, America and the Western European members of [he Atlantic pact would have • pushed steadily along with their economic welfare programs, and this would have been done at the expense of wholesale rearmament. Now the search for security has suddenly shifted from the ide; balanced budgets to air-tight tary strength capable of meeting '.ny eventuality. And for clarity's sake let's emphasize that this change isn't because the Western authorities believe another world war Is Inevitable. It's because they recognize that it Is possible and that military weakness on their part would Increase that possibility. Figure* Go Awry Until recently the Western Allies had figured that It would take Russia three or four years to reach economic and military preparedness. That fact was Uken into consideration by the Atlantic Pact nations In laying their own plans for developing military security. Now they suddenly rind that thi« estimate was far too optimistic. So we see America 'and her Allies rushing plans to meet any possible attack. That Is the all Important subject now before the twelve deputies of the North Atlantic Council meeting In London. The London Times comment? on the situation: "The time may be nearer than had been thought when the Soviet government may feel Itself free to go ahead with expansion and war, confident of being able to cope with any military reactions of which the Western powers are capable." Of course the democracies hat»« notable precedent to remind thlfci of possibilities. ^They aren't likely soon to forget that Adolf Hitler performed the staggering" feat of rearming a defeated Germany right under the noses of surrounding nations without their realizing what was happening. " Der Fuehrer Swatters Ont Then all of a sudden Der Fuehrer swagge-red out Into the open »nd defied sn astonished world. But he didn't waste much time In verbal defiance. He marched,his legions. The Western powers have no intention of handing such an advantage to any other aggressor.nation. Consequently they must make » quick mobilization of resources for rearmament. And since military preparations are not. economically productive, It means that Americans must tighten their belts so that they c«n donate to preparedness. There probably,Is ahead of us s long, hard grind of sacrifices. And as previously remarked, the prospects aren't rosy. However, r« stay- at-homes would be pretty small to gripe while our soldier boys are holding the sack for us In Korea.

If East had » double ton king or queen of spades, however, there would be no spade trick If declarer were left to his own devices. Tor example, suppose Lou had made the neutral return of a trump at the third trick. Declarer would clraw trumps and lead a low spade from dummy.'He would finesse the queen of spades, »fter which he would lay down the ace of spades. (South's best chance to avoid the loss of a spade trick would consist In finding a doubleton king ol spades In the East hand.) { This plan would work for declarer. Loti, who had guessed the situation, led the nine of spades to coax declarer away from * play that would work and into a line cf play lhat would fall. The nine of spades looked to declarer like the top of a doublelon. He therefore assumed that East held '.he king and ten of spades. Acting on this assumption, declarer put lip .the jack of spades from dummy. This cooked his goose, just ns Lou had planned. East covered with the kin 1 ? of :pade.s, and South won witti the ace. Declarer next drew trumps and led another ipade from dummy to finesse through East's supposed ten of spades.
