UN Delegate Austin Stays Respite His Difficult Role To reporters wlio asked him if it were "true that he was going to quit his United Nations post, Warren Austin gave this amiable but pointed answer: "If you f**k me whether I have resigned, I ! haven't. If you ask me whether I am go[ Ing to resign, I am not," .That is as definite a statement as «nyon« «ould ask. Yet it is not surprising that rumors to the contrary hav« .. b«m circulating. For Mr. Austin's ref cent diplomatic role has been most diffi- . cult and embarrassing. : Ai America's top man in the United , Nations, it was his assignment last year ' to put through the UN Commission'* • proposal of partition in Palestine. Even after our government came out for partition there were a good many - reluctant members that had to b«- i brought into line. This was accomplished—and, according to reports, not al- •wmys on the high plane of polite diplomatic language. At any rate, there is i little question that the final partition vote was largely the result of American influence. That was in November. Then, in March, it was Mr. Austin's unhappy lot j to have to go before the Assembly and '. try to argue just as persuasively against partition as he had in favor of it less ' than four months before. Mr. Austin didn't make the policy, but he had to ' make the speeches. . The argument prepared for him had more loopholes than logic, but he *ave it » good try. Right down to the wire he i f eld out for trusteeship and other Impi Jess proposals. ; Mr. Austin was spared the crowning embarrassment. Apparently he thought ^ that when he had made his final pica ; »gamst setting up an independent Jew; »h state at this time, has voice was : speaking his government's last word on the matter. So he was not in-the General Assembly chflinbfcr u.'ho« n-m-j } * *«"n/ci waen void came ; that the United States had recognized ; ye Jewish state—10 minutes after its > independence was proclaimed!

BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Being Nice to Uncle John As negotiations for a new coal miners' contract got under way, nothing could have been more certain to put the operators on the spot than the government's request th:tt Justice T. Alan Goldskorough dismiss the contempt conviction and no-strike injunction against John- L. Lewis and the UMW. Nor was anything more likely to inflate Mr. Lewis' pomposity even further. The govA-nmcrl's intent was obvious. But one would think that by this time the federal legal eagles would have learned that when they try to do something nice to keep Uncle John in h good humor, the old gentleman will usually respond by kicking the government and the public in the teeth. VIEWS OF OTHERS Who's Out of Step? American opuonenls of peacetime conscription frequently argue that the demand for It is the result of an hysterical fear of war. European nations which are much closer to Russia, they say, have no such fear and are much less wrought up'over military plans. The element of fear cannot be precisely measured. But as to the dralt, Europe certainly is ahead of us. So Is almost the whole world. Ol S4 nations with military establishments, 4a rely on some form of compulsory service, according to the United States News. in spite of a desperate manpower shortage In ils industries, Great Britain is calling up all . Us 18-year-olds for 32 months service. The service term in France now is only 12 months, but It is expected that it will be raised to 18. Russia, of course, has conscription, putting its young men Into uniform on their nineteenth birthdays; Italy calls them up at 20. In fact, only the United Slates, the Dominican Republic, Australia, Canada, India and New Zealand today are without any form of conscription service. In recognizing the need of the times, the united States certainly w m not be getting out of step : with • the- nations of the world, democratic or totalitarian. —St. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH. Inflation Hits the Elderly The necessity for checking Inflallon it Illustrated by the report of the Advisory Council on Social Security set up by the Senate Finance Committee. The Advisory council points out that under the present rise in prices the Government's old ige »nd survivors insurance Is Inadequate for the security of mast of its beneficiartet. Accordingly, the Council recommends clunges that would have the effect or practically doubling ih« Government's pensions during the lirst few years. As the Social security System is young, taxes paid by employer and employee are no w bringing in a surplus, and it ran stand a revision of Its bookkeeping. But ij prices continue to rise and again sharply cut down the value of pensions, the Government cannot soon consider another doubling of Its payments. Meantime, many of the private pension plans are suffering from the loss of their purchasing power, »nd have n;. relief | n prospect such as is proposed for the Government's program. Altogether the pension pvovis.ou for old age which has developed in the Untied Stnlej n, the last dozen years Is the most extensive the world has ever seen, and it deserves safeguarding from loss through Inflation.

Seems to Get Wrapped Up in Everything Nowadays FRIDAY, MAY 28,1948 Russians Urged to Take-Up With United States Lend-Lease Settlements, End of ERP Sabotage Slate Department having rejected Premier Stalin's okay on discussing Henry Wallace's list of differences between this country and Russia, the next step should be naking a li s t of .Issues that could oe talked about. Official objection to the Wallace Stalin list Is that it consists of terns "of intimate and compelling .nterest 10 many countries." What he u. S. government Ls apparently willing to talk about are controversies primarily aflecling these two countries only. On such a list, to begin with would be the Jll.ooa.COO.oOO worth of lend-Jesse supplier furnished Russia during the war, plus some $234,- COO.COO worth of aid given since V-J uces last July. Molone session, then in Paris :oulcr olov attended withdrew. from then on the Russians have taken no part themselves and thej> have not allowed their satellites to take part. Instead, these countries set up the Cominform for the announced purpose of preventing the success of the Marshall Plan. Only a complete reversal of this policy could be considered a sincere demonstration of a Soviet desire to co-operate. The U. S. has persistently tried to make an agreement for civil air traffic between the two countries, to permit U. S. airlines now operating to Europe and Asia to toucn Ru.'sian pom. All such overtup-s i.

Up to January 1S47 the Russians ignored four requests to settle. Negotiations got under way in April of that year. Since then "the Russians have refused, to present an inventory and have refused to accept the principles of lend-lease settlements with other countries. So the deal is still stalemated. Russia Must Stop ERP Sabotage A second and still more important item concerns Russian obstruction of Hie European recovery program. While this concerns other advances half way, the Soviet Union has done everything it could to further isolale her people from culiural contact with Ihe world outside the Soviet orbit. The U. S. "Voice ot America" radio programs and the U. S. government - published magazine "Amerlka"—printed in Russian for distribution in Russia—have stuck lo factual presentation o( life in America. Controversial issues have been avoided. In response. Soviet propaganda at home and abroad has always been violently and abusively anti-American. The United stales is pictured lapse. Until this attitude changes, it is considered hopeless to achieve more friendly relations. List of Broken Agreements h Long At Yalta an agreement was made for exchange of nationals liberated by Soviet and American forces. U.
