But onc« again Hawaiian^' hopes have been dashed,,this time by the Senate Interior and Insular Affairs Committee. It hap heard a parade of witnesses in favor of statehood. But now it docs not take any action until its members have a chance to visit the islands. So there seems no chance of action until next year. Congressional committee after congressional committee have visited Hawaii. One would thing that all the needed evidence was in by now. Another inspection tour raises the suspicion that there is about to be another congressional junket to the Pacific paradise—at the taxpayers' expense, of course. The public has footed the bills for such junkets a good many times without complaining. Now, in the interest of economy as well as justice, it seems time for some action. •«••••»•• » • ••••••••••••••••••••••••* VIEWS OF OTHERS East-West Rivalry Irlurts UN Peace Effort ; "The" Atomic Energy Commission re- i ports that it has reached an impasse." | With these words, a branch of the j United Nations confessed failure for the J first time in the UN's troubled history. [The deadlock on international atomic [ energy controls has long been an actual[Ity. Yet the admission of defeat, while {not unexpected, is-'deeply disheartening* f It means, for one thing, that the ! -world'g brave and abiding hope in the S UN has received a setback. Following ! the unhappy handling of the Palestine affair, it further deflates the world's great expectations and focuses' attention more intently on the East-West rivalry that dominates world affairs. It also means that the reasonable, ; workable Baruch program of atomic ' control faces a long and indefinite postponement, with' some question that it • ever will be revived. At the same time, it does not mean that the Russian pro.. gram will triumph. Except for the Soviet Union and its satellites, most of the UN members favor the American plan. There is little possibility that they would adopt in itg place the pious, cynical "gentleman's agreement" put forth by one of the world's least trustworthy governments. But if Russia has not won acceptance of her atomic control plan, she haa brought about an impasse. That prob- sbly suits the Soviet leaders just as well. Their tactics have forced the United .States and their own country into an 'atomic armaments race. They have won what they needed most—time. For its is assumed that Russia's big problem now is to develop the industrial capacity to put her atomic scientists' knowledge of bomb production into practical operation. .This is a frightening prospect. But it is not a prospect created by the Atomic Commission's statement that Russian stubbornness has ended any present hope of agreement. The commission's failure has long been apparent. * We do not rejoice in this UN body's public admission of defeat. But we do not think that it signals the end of the world organization. Rather, it seems to indicate that the UN will have to mark time and busy itself with less vital matters until the most pressing problem in international relations has been settled. That problem, of course, is the difference between the United States and Soviet Russia. It colors, in some way, almost every international relationship. And it will have to be settled before the • .UN can begin to play the peace-protecting role that was written for it. A United States of the World? Not long ago a Gallup poll showed 83 per cent ot the American people In favor of strengthening the United Nations and 56 percent openly for world government, a late Roper poll shows more Americans for than against participation In a full- fledged United States of the World. Put these facts against the assertion of drain Brlnton, McUean Professor of Ancient and Modern History at Harvard, that "plain people" do not take seriously the "extremists" who insist that we must have world government or be blown to bits. After examining history for evidence in a enwly published -book on the subject, professor Brlnton conclude* unequivocally that "in our times a United States ef the World is impossible." History la against It. "Plain people" may not know much about history. That U too bad. They do know history isn't everything. And that is good. HUtory could not help us to foresee that atomic research would, put at our disposal, for construc- Bridging the Gap Head of Washington Zoo Has Trouble with High Food Costs ' TH1 DOCTOR SAYS * WASHINGTON, May 18—(UP* —After witching the government shell out scads of dough (or the relief of the soft shell clam—"an*fi< for other purposes"—it was com^w fort to run Into old Bill Mann.

Would they not do better In help- Ing strengthen UN toward the ultimate day of would government by bringing pressure on their own Government to make fuller use of the world machinery already available? For it Is not only Russia which has been obstructive. Sir John Boyd Orr, retiring head of the UN Food and Agriculture Organization and a iterling blend of realist and idealist, recently declared: America talks about Russian mliuse of the veto, but the united States itself has vetoed and therefore destroyed a world plan to feed the world . . . World hunger is a far greater danger to civilization and mankind than the atomic bomb ... but the United States won't' or can't understand this Here historic American attitudes have ob- itructed the progress toward world cooperation possible even under present conditions.

The federal principle—-E pluribus unum.

ANSWER: The lymph glands hard to explain, however, in the light of his nil-important role in writing the original Atomic Energy Act of 1846. He insisted thnt the Atomic Energy Commission be removed from politics. He took the lead, as much aa anyone else, in fighting for Lilienthal's confirmat- man reappointments does not make sense. Four of the five members are Republicans, anyway. The only real Democrat of the bunch it Lilien- thnl. And he has let it be known he would resign, if asked to, by a ittle i Republican President. may become enlarged as a result of a number.of different conditions. Consequently, there are no specialists who deal with lymph glands alone. The problem Is to find the cause of the enlargement and then to use the best method of treating the cause. li Yean Ago ; In Blytheville-~ Tom Mahan who attends the Univer-sity of Tennessee School of Medicine In Memphis was home for the weekend.
