SUN Must Act NoW to ! Enforce'Palestine Decision H sj The "United Nations Security Council ha» received the bald facts from the UN's own Palestine Commission. That is, the Council has received them formally. Actually, the facts have been plain as day from the time when the UN first began considering the partition of Pal- > It is now time to act. The UN must have an international army of enforcement and it must have one fast. In less than .three months the British will turn over its Palestine mandate to the UN. And when May'15 arrives, a force must be there ;to take over. Before that there must be a decision on what countries are to provide troops; who will command them; how they are to be outfitted, supplied and paid, and by whom. Then they must be assembled and trained and transported. Why the UN has not discussed the need of enforcement before now is a mystery. Discussion should have begun the day after the Arab governments gave official, explicit notice that they would not recognize partition, and would oppose it by force of arms. There are considerations of policy and politics beneath the surface of the major powers' attitude toward enforcement. This government,, for example, has to think about such things as the oil that the Arabs selfus, and the possible result of Soviet participstion'in enforce, ment. It must weigh the demand for lifting: the embargo on arms for the Jews , . against the opposition to such shipments by Britain, which is still the mandatory power. • . But these considerations, and those I of other countries, seem trival compared to what will happen to Palestine and the UN if partition is not enforced. And 1 since the majority of the UN member ). nations are not bothered by the problems '. that confront the big powers, why ,1 haven't some of them come forward >i with a call for action? [I It is quite evident what will happen i", if nothing is done. The Jews will have a }•' bad time of it, even if they are supplied f with arms after the British leave. They • ,, .will be greatly outnumbered by sn in;» ternational army of invading Arabs. ", UN prestige will receive a heavy t| blow. The Palestine question finally f. found'Washington and Moscow in agree^ m«nt. That was encouraging. But if the } ;UN is t« bow before the first challenge }| of its first major decision, it may col- \\ lapoe like the League ol Nations—only I. much faster. It seems, certain that the blustering 1 J" Arab front would dissolve before any • - concerted ahow of power. By modern 'j military standards, the Arabs' cquip- • ,'MWHt U primitive. Their threats and aaber-rmttlmg are directed toward the that an their beet customers. No Mystery The strike in New York's financial district has,forccd dignified brokers to roll up their sleeves, grab mops and do their own janitor work. It won't take a congressional investigation to find out who cleaned up in this Wall Street operation. VIEWS Of OTHERS » a New OPA Talk It his been less yian two years since OPA was permanently destroyed, yet important voices are • now calling for 1U restoration, at least on a itana-by basis. _ Charles E. Wilson, head o[ General Electric ' Co says the cost of rearmament, universal train- Ing and selective service-all necessary because .of the critical world situation-might pmch to a point where wartime controls would be necessary. Earlier this week, Bernard Baruch told the Senate Armed Services Committee what a mobll- Uation plan should cover. One of the most important parts of the plan is "a ceiling over .11 prices, wages and rents." Mr. Barud. is in favor of Immediate enactment of a mobilization plan, to be ready for use when proclaimed by the president- with congressional concurrence. If the worsening world situation brings forth these suggestions for a return of wartime controls It Is also true that their too-hasty removal has plunged this country into a dangerous Inflation. Even if new and staggering armament costs were not in the offing, prudence would counsel consideration of strong anti-Inflation measures. It was argued against OPA that it was a gigantic bureaucracy, and that's a smear word to a lot of Americans. Naturally, it required many persons to administer price ceilings. It was argued against OPA that it gave rise U> a black market. That is true. Yet the facts and figures show that OPA was worth what it cost in administration. The price level 1 throughout the war was remarkably stable compared 'with the price level since controls were removed.'" OPA saved the American .people many billions of dollars. And instead of the black market, we now have the gray market in steel and other product!!.

Jordan, M. D. Written for NEA Stnriec Acne, or pimples, is not dangerous to life nor does It affect the general health. However, it attaeki teen- ige glrlj and boys mo«t frequently and this makes it more wrious than U generally realized. Acne affecti most commonly the ace, neck, eheit, and shouldei?. The reddish lump with which it tarU turns into a "whilehead" which contains a mixture of pus, germa, destroyed tissue cell* and skin oil. This pimple eventually breaks and forms a crust. In mild cases the pimples are rather far apart and near the *ur- 'ace. The more severe the case ;he closer they are together and :he deeper they lie in the skin. Fortunately it is only in the deeper cases that a permanent scar is formed in the tkln. . CauMi Not Known The cause or causes of acn« are not all known.

(UP) — ". . .He lived 78 years and within lhat span brought a healing wisdom to the peoples of the world. . . .If we have seen lit and proper to monuments to leaders of war, tin It is not equally as fitting to erert a monument to a leader of peace?"It was a solemn tribute to a lit- ile man. A wiieried little old fello* who weighed less than a hundred pounds; but one so great in mental fiber that he rose to become the- spiritual leader of 403,000,030 people. The eulogy was in memory of th» late Mohandas K. Gandhi of India. It was delivered by Rep. Emanuel Celled of New York before th« House Administration Committee. The group was considering Celler'f resolution which would thority to the India League of America to erect a memorial to tht Mahatama here in Washington. Mr. Celler went on to say that he didn't intend to bore the 'Committee with sentimentality. But such a monument to such a man, he thought, would be a recognition of values that we stand in danger of losing. A monument to Gandhi's are undoubtedly other elements which enter Into the development of .this condition. Because acne is most common and usually most severe during the period of adolescence, It probably has some relation to the changes in the glands and hormones which different kinds • men ioiy would stand as a constai'C eminder of "what man's goal ought. .0 be.' "We are all busy," said Mr. Celler, •building armies "of hate and (_-. sli'uments of destruction. Surely, '^t can pause to pay tribute to the moat wtent force for peace in our time."

These Conditions are going to be aggravated as we finance the Marshall plan and do the other things necessary to preserve the nation's security. No one likes controls. They are very unpleasant things. Yet the removal of controls from wages and prices has not produced the magical results claimed by professional free-enterprisers. Quite the contrary. Congress was not impressed by President Truman's 10-poInt anti-inflation program. It has done little or nothing to implement that program. But the time Is coming—as Messrs. Wilson and Baruch warn—when Congress is going to have to do some heavy thinking and fast acting to stabilize the nation's economy. —ST. LOUIS POST-DISFATCH. hese missions in March. 1049.

"Gandhi," he said, "was the man of the century. He added richness to our lives, and will go down in history as one of the all-time immortals." It was easy to see that-the committee was sympathetic to the resolution, which must have the approval of the Fine Arts Commission and the Joint Committee on library. Committee Chairman C. W. Biih- op of Illinois next called on J. J. oul b May 6. By, that time, Gromyko hoped there would be a treaty permitting Russian troops to stay. What the Iranians finally agreed to on April 7, however, was forma ion of a Russian-Iranian oil company. It was to be 51 per cent own- id by the Russians for the first 25 years, 50 per cent for" the second 25. Iran insisted her troops would be In control. As soon as the treaty was-concluded. Iran withdrew her complaint against Russia before the UN. There was another battle In the Security Council ?.s to whether the Iranian case should be dropped from the agenda. Russian troops weren't yet out of Azerbaijan. Again Gromyko boycotted. Again he was voted down. So the case Is still before the UN. On May 20, 194«.
