BLYTHEYILLK (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS TUESDAY, OCTOBER M, Russia Aims Attack At U.S. in UN Meet UNITED NATIONS, N. Y. (AP) — Russia framed a double-barreled demand today for V. N. action on her charges of American aggression against Communist China. But the United States stood firm against any move to include Red China in such a debate. The Soviet Union goes before the U.N.'i 15-natlon Steering Committee to seek an airing of two complaints: 1. Russia's charges that Nation»list China—with U.S. connivance —has made piratical attacks on shipping bound for the Communist Chinese mainland. J.

Andrei in Action Russia's Andrei vi.shinsky brought the .second, more direct accusation against the United States last Friday, barely M hmin; after the U.N. Secretariat tiail circulated a similar charge by Ked China's Premier Chou En-liii. The Russian charge drew a prompt report from Chief U.K. Delegate Henry Cabot Lodge Jr., who branded It a "plain lie." The U.N. Security Council considered similar charges by Red China in 1950 but threw oul a Pel- ping request that it condemn the United States.

"From our .standpoint." ho said, "ft was the most unfortunate time we could have chosen. The amount of the rate increase has been greatly exnRcraleil in the public mind due again to politics and hot weather."

The Russians have also offered to make concession/! on their pet U.N. project—to establish it cK'fl- duction of conventional tirnt.s. Amendment To meet Western objections that Russia's proposed definition left too ninny loopholes for would-be UKKrc.s.sons, the Soviets agreed to add a clause. This would provide that an act not included in the definition might constitute aggression if the Security Council so defined it. Observers pointed out, however, that the Russians hold veto power in the council and could block any move thnt tlUl not please them. These new Russian moves — hulled by imuiy neutrnl powers- have placed the West on the defensive. Western delegates realize that If they reject the offers, they put themselves In Ihe position of hindering the cause ol peace. On thii other bund, they are fearful of fall- In [f Into a propaganda trap and coinniltllnt' themselves to .something they illicit later regret. As one veUivnn diplomat commented: "Thi Russians have so fur committed themselves to nothing. They are merely talking to see If they can pick up .some support.

Stringfellow, a first-term representative in the 83rd. Congress, precipitated the pre-election crisis Saturday night when he dramatically announced via radio and television that he had been living a lie as a war hero for years. Hoax The disabled veteran, 32, married and the father of two, confessed that his story of a bchind- thc-lines mission into World War II Germany—a story that had helped win him national prominence — was a hoax. In Dixon, Republican leaders felt they had the strongest possible re- Iil;\ccmcnt for Stringfellow to oppose the Democratic candidate, former Congressman Walter K. Granger of Cedar City.

It is for you because it tells ho\v other women who once thought they could never escape alcohol now lead happy, useful lives without alcohol. You too, can find the help that will enable you to slop drinkinff and j;et more out of living than you ever thought possible.- The women in A A are young, middle aged or older. Some have cosily educations, others have only the essentials of a formal education. Some of the women have lived all their lives iigainst a background of wealth and social prestige, others have known real poverty. All these women have two things in common. They had a drinking problem. They came lo the point where excessive drinking had made their lives miserable for themselves and others. The second thing these women have in common is that (hey have found a new way of life, without alcohol, through the simple program of Alcoholics Anonymous. It is not always easy to admit that you are an alcoholic. This obstacle is undoubtedly greater for women than for men. Society is inclined lo be tolerant of the male drunk, but the woman who has messed up her life through drinking is not likely to find the same degree of sympathy from her family, friends or business associates. These women made a discovery of a new altitude toward alcoholism—-an attitude that says alcoholism is not a moral problem, not a question of lack of character or will ower. The new attitude is thai alcoholism is a health problem; il is an illness or a disease thai can be arrested.
