Settlement At Trieste The signing: of the accord between Italy and Yugoslavia over Trieste area after nine years of wrangling must be put down as one more significant diplomatic achievement for 1954. • This is the year, we must recall, in which the nagging controversy between Britain and Iran over oil was settled, the Egyptian crisis was solved by the planned withdrawal of British troops from the Suez, and—for better or for worse—active fighting was ended in Indo-China. The latter may be rated an accomplishment only in the narrow sense that it brought a halt to bloodshed in a region that had seen far too much of it over eight long years. But the other events were clcnvly a great credit to the western dipomnts who brought them off. So it is now with Trieste, the free territory that has been occupied jointly since World War II by Yugoslavia on the one hand and British and American armed forces on the other. Last year, in hope of forcing an agreement, British and U, R. units wore announced as withdrawing arbitrarily from the city of Trieste and the ao-callod Zone A, with Italians to take their place. The result then was that, the Trieste issue boiled high and hostilities were threatened between Italy nnd Yugoslav- is. Thereafter, the western powers began patiently again to bring the two rivals together, through all negotiations up to that time had failed dismally. This time, perhaps by some strange alchemy born of Yugoslavia's increased estrangement from the Soviet world and association with tho West, the effort succeeded. Under the agreement, Italy gfts the city and all of X.ono A except a small strip. Yugoslavia retnins Zone B, which it has continuously occupied, and gets the strip as well. Yugoslavia will have full access to the port of Trieste, while the 3000 Italians in the so-called Lazzarctto strip can return if they wish to Kalian-con t rolled soil. Minority rights are guaranteed in both zones. Within the next three weeks, 4000 American and 3000 British soldiers in Zone A will be pulled out, in favor of the Italians. Only, this time no trouble is expected. Without wishing to subtract any measure of credit from those who solved this problem and helped rub out other sore spots this year, one ought to note that a roughly similar pattern followed World War I. At the conclusion of general fighting a number of secondary conflicts either continued or arose, but all were ultimately settled. The difference was that they did not drag on so interminably did these post- World War II disturbances. Evidently, however, it i« a natural thing for such conflicts lo erupt in the unsettled atmosphere of general war and its aftermath. What is important, plainly, it not to assume that the condition is permanent but lo apply diplomacy doggedly and without letup to seek solutions. The year 1954 will he remembered as one in which international air was considerably cleared of the fog of dispute. The successes are especially remarkable in light of the fact, that the Soviet Union and its friends have fought pro- sistently lo keep the world's sore spots raw and bleeding. The Trieste outcome, Like Iran and Kgypt. (though not Indochina' is a defeat for Russia. N/IEWS OF OTHERS Barber Shop Ethics Women wouldn't know nbout such tiling.^ hut In this .slowly .shrinktliK imin's world there rtre lew simple pleasures to compare with KO|MK into a barber shop and finding your favorite chair vacant. The barber shop is a masculine world. The only feminine invinU-rs nre mothers brilliants little boys. They lire tolerated, but they should be reminded I hat they are Interlopers and that if they wish to IjrlliR their yotuiK up In the paths at rectitude, they should observe an unwritten eode of barber shop ethics. And by all means they should encourafic their little hoys to observe it and to pick up, perhaps by osmois, proper standards of conduct. For a man lo find his Javorite chair vacant, for Instance, and to have immediate and undisputed right to a Censorial throne, restores a man's faith in his luck. Particularly Is that true since the odds against him hnve been narrowed by that five-day week. And for some reason the pleasure is all the keener if a parade of less fortunate men comes In Just as the fortunate one settles down and lifts his chin so the apron can be tucked In around his collar. But It should he noted that the unwritten code prevents a man from showing triumph under nueh circumstances. He may at most, roll ills luck around on his tongue a bit, savoring it, while he sits In white cassock and watches the less fortunate thumb through old magazines. It Is good that a boy should learn early to respect the righto of others, guard jealously his own nnd cover both with good manners.—Tulsn Tribune. Did The Rustlers Win?

Reinhardt, a regular Army officer and noted writer on military prob- ems. His radical proposal is to give the mission o£ aerial support of Army ground forces to the Navy and Marines. "It will permit the Air Force to concentrate on its - . monumental responsibilities: strategic bombing and air defense of the U. S., he writes. "And it doesn't entail strange new responsibilities for sea power, since Navy-Marine Corps air already operate a highly efficient tactical air setup." he claims. Vice President Nixon's campaign trip around the counlry caught the Air Force with Us protocol down and sent the Pentagon into a temporary flap. The Air Forpe knew he was planning to fly in a private plane so the brass didn't concern themselves with the Irip until it Was discovered that the V. P. planned lo arrive at numerous Air Force bases around the U. S. where no commercial fields were available. Regardless of what the purpose of the visit is, when Ihe vice president of the United States lands at an Air Force field the local commander is usually expected to provide some kind of a formal ceremony. That's whal caught the Air Force by .surprise. No provision had been made for this. The day before Nixon left on the trip, however, the Air Force gol him on the 'phone and explained Iheir problem. "By all means skip my ceremonies," he requesled. •Jusl lell Ihem not to try to shoot me ri o w n as my plane approaches," he added. THE FRANK SINATRA - Nancy reconciliation rumors are around again.
