Ghost of League's Failure Haunts Palestine Program ; : The United States government is used to angry attacks by Russia in the ,tUnited Nations. It is not used to rea- L «onable attacks like that by Sir Carl . Berendsen of New Zealand, whose sharp rapier of logic cflt the present American 'position on PaleEtine to ahreds. : H« had »n inviting target in the . American trusteeship proposal. The gist , of this argument was that the United States had favored partition until it appeared that this solution would cause chaos and violence. Then, as a means of •aving life, it felt called upon to ask the .warring parties for a truce and to suggest a trusteeship until an agreement could be reached. Sir Carl had warned the General As- trembly last November that chaos and •violence would result if partition we're not accompanied by enforcement. Now .h-s renewed, his argument in the light of .recent developments. "I asked whether the Assembly was prepared to gamble with the lives of innocent people in Palestine," he said. "The appeal fell on deaf' ears. You were prepared so to gamble; we did gamble »nd we lost. But we do not pay. You know today- who i« paying. . . . British boys dying at their post of duty . . . the people of Palestine, be they innocent or guilty, be they Arab or Jew." His chief points were these: If partition was right in November, it is right today, for circumstances have not changed in the slightest. The Assembly's November decision was the right thing, but it was done in the wrong way As a result of that error, there is ""death, bloodshed, murder, outrage and agony in Palestine." As a further result, the Assembly i s in gl . ave danger Qf ]osj the public confidence on which it* au . thonty ultimately rests. If the UN member nations are willing to take their proportionate part in enforcing , trusteeship, he said, then by M, -logical basis they 3 hould be willing to do the same for partition. This i s a x, * C0nduded ' and the fufur* uoonth nia >' e upon the way ,„ which it is decided We do not think that Sir Carl's warn- to m any way exaggerated. One only h ° f T .&.*> i_ j P*ri*ii6J. s Lefcjrue had almost as much machin- E^'^S^Uth.W. * u r P to use that machinery for m incident" *n example, when Britain ', hesHated to offend Japan tw better—or worse—ex- tt« lUIUa invasion of \ , Ethiopia in 1935. Britain led the League up the hill and down again, as America did with the UN in the Palestine matter. It favored •anctiong, then backed water, began to »e**ome justice in the Italian position, and refused to enforce the embargo on the war materials that Italy needed most. « From then on the League was finished as a force for peace. The toleration of Mussolini's aggression gave Hitler the green light for his own. Then began the familiar and melancholy train of events that led to World War II. It is the American government's responsibility today to avoid the risk of repeating those events. Whatever danger we might encounter through partition seem less than what we may face if we scuttle it. Our illogical, indefensible position has cost us prestige. It may cost us and the world much more if our government persists on assuming that the UN solution of a critical, explosive situation must be enforced by words alone, or not at all. VIEWS OF OTHERS BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS r Just to Let Him Know We Haven't Forgotten Him %, T SATURDAY, *MAY 1, 194S Palestine: Urgency Plus There is warfare In Palestine. There li a United Nations organization at Lake Success, whose Job Is to stop warfare. What It this ografllzatlon doing? It Is discussing \arious plans—partition, trus- teeship-cfesigned in the hope of bringing the hostile groups Into peaceful cooperation for * future government for Palestine. The United Nations has Issued a cease-fire order. It is not being obeyed. So the UN now is contemplating the sending ol a truce commission to Palestine to attempt to enforce Its niliruj. But one fact U central in the crisis now; it Is that a decision for Palestine Is being made by force of arms, not by the UN. Last week's news of the capture of Haifa by the Haganah fora* forecasts »'pattern of warfare to follow upon British withdrawal from the Holy Land. The battle for Haifa began when Jewish forces outside the city heard that the British were evacuating the government offices. The Jews simply moved Iri'aUer them against unequal Arab resistance. Th. objective of both Jews and Arab, in the future must be to take advantage of British withdrawals to set up either Arab or Jewish confrols as opportunity may suggest. But it Is the UN's business 'to see that opportunity does not mggest seizure fo contorls by arms on either side. In all this the United States, as the most powerful of directly interested nations, has a special responsibility, it has already retreated from advocacy of partition, after WMUng g^ tlme pust) _ ing that Idea through the General Assembly and Is now urging trusteeship, partition would hav* been opposed by the Arabs; trusteeship will be opposed by the Jews-.nd which opposition to a UN program for Palestine wohld be the more Violent we can only guess. Neither proposal will avoid warfare in Palestine, it is now as plain as the mounting casualties there, unless bucked with armed force,by the UN. The brightest spot in this dark picture at the moment is the posslbtuty that the British can be induced to leave some uoop, in Fal^tln* u he United States or ,om. other nations wlll add their arms to Britain's. The hope ts fo r an Amer fcan-Britlsh-French "police force But Its possibilities should be exploited to the utmost.

CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR United States Seeks Tangier-Type Government For Palestine Hoping to End Years of Chaos By Peter Edaon NEA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON (NEA) - Gradually the Truman administration policy on Palestine is beginning to emerge and make a liltle more sense. For a time, trying to follow that policy was a little bit like wan- derirur with Moses through the wilderness of Mt, Sinai, it took « yeats to get the Chosen People out of that one. The. United Nations has had the Palestine problem before it only one year. Whether It will take another 39 years remains to be seen But the basic policy of the United , States is to have the United Na| tions lind the solution and make i', wo work. 'So far, this has turned into something of a buck-passing game. The UN Security Council and General Assembly, are inclined to let the United States take the lead. Nobody else has come up with any bright idea.s at all. And the United States wants good constructive suggestions from others. President Truman, Secretary of State Marshall and ambassador Io the United Nations Warren Austin all say that the United States is still for the United Nations decision to partition i Palestine—eventually. But it can't be done till the Arabs and the Jews stop fighting. So until they do stop righting, the United stales has proposed settin<* up at temporary trusteeship. A month ago. President Truman was asked at a press conference whether the United States would send troops to Palestine if the United Nations decided a trusteeship was necessary. The President replied that we—meaning the Unii- i ed States government—would crow ' the bridge when we came to it. Bat Bridge ] S goon Crossed The bridge was in pla:n sight when the President pulled thia nifty. But there seemed to be some hesitancy about putting foot on the bridge, as though fearing it wouldn't hold. Now, however, "we" have taken that step, in two recent statements. Ambassador Austin has in- dicatei a willingness to let American troops cross the bridge over into Jordan. It isn't a full-fledgerl plan, it is described as a. working paper. The difference is that whereas a plan is supposed to be pretty complete, a working paper is just a lot of rough Ideas winch it is hoped can be polished, Austin's working paper was first presented to members of the Security Council—less Russia and the Ukraine—at an informal meeting in Austin's office on April 7 In 15 pomls it outlined a provisional government for a temporary UN trusteeship. In short, the way was being paved for an international police iorc» The dilficulties which this presen's are obvious. Russia has blocked creation of any kind of UN police force. If the force is to be one 'A these three- or four-power occupations such as set up in Germany Austria or Trieste, It can't, b* expected to work any better. The U S., Britain and Russia have been llsh sending its troops to replace the British in Palestine and try to put down civil war. The Russians might, if they could do it alone If the United states took on the job, it would be accused by the Russians of being Imperialistic, trying to get a stranglehold on the Middle East. But in his statement of April 21 to the General Assembly 58-natioii Political Committee. Ambassador Austin has amplified on his original paper by saying that the United States would furnish troops, "along with other members who are willing to carry out such a task. . . . The United States . . . is not prepared to act alone in this matter." So here we go, crossing the bridge. What the administration is apparently seeking by this proposal is a setup similar to the government o( Tangier, the international zone in Morocco, opposite Gibraltar. - _ ivi-^j.,4 "arc ireuil trying Io find a governor general Since 191J Morocco has been divided into Spanish and French zones.

In this country, however, cretinism is rare. In grownups insufficient thyroid secretion causes a condition called myxedema.

While pop ills there beating his fingers to the knuckle over a hot adding machine or typewriter, he basks in a measure of comfort. He knows that mama us earning her keep. She's running around the cottage pumping a flft gun, digging Info the corners of the closets and otherwise fixing to make Summer more bearable. Which brings ui more to the point. The season for cleaning It tht time to declare war on pests. And mama's best friend, outside of her old nun who fetches home the b«- con and what's left of the pay check, is the Department of Agriculture. Clint Anderson, the Secretary of Agriculture, and his boys not only will tell you for free land pay the postage) which end of the onion sets to stick in the ground, but also how to control pests. It has, as of now, issued spring pamphlets on about every insect of a cantankerous nature a body can think of, Iran bed bug to the cloth- hungry moth. ^ Incidentally, Clint and his lao™ have come up with some facts about moths you might not know. For instance, grown up moths don't io around chewing vests, sweaters and evening gowns. They leave the eai- ing business to little moths. Thit doesn't mean. the Department warns, that you shouldn't haul off and swat a flying molh. The legend that moths never lly until after they.'ve laid all their eggs is not true. But more important, how doe* a housewife control moths? The department has the answer to that one, too. In leaflet No. 145 it says (hat all depends on the circumstance.-;. If the house Is really full of moths, the thing to do ia 'o call the fumigator, and beg his pardon, please, for letting things get out of hand. Jf the menace Is not quite that bad. the department advises contact sprays, available at most stores. Most of 'em have lolutiona which, contain the enemy of bugs—DDT. Some only small amounts. In theee, mostly, you have * score a direct hit on the moth to shoot him dead. Some, though, with higher content of DDT are better if applied 10 clothing and furniture in genei amounts. It makes it dangeroue insects to go nosing around after the shooting.
