MUR IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE, IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN SATURDAY, MAY 8,1965. IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE Thf) Dolly Glob* Is an Independent newspaper, supporting what it believes to be right and opposing what it believes to bt wrong, regardless of party politics, and publishing the news fairly and impartially." —Linwood I. Noyes, Editor and Publisher 1927-1964. Mrs. Linwood I. Noyes, President Edwin J. Johnson, Editor and Publisher Two Decades of a Cold Peace "War is a political instrument; once it is clear you are gong to win, political considerations must influence its further course." Tin's is the traditional British view of the Allied failure to race the Russians to Berlin in World War H, us expressed by Viscount Montgomery of Ala- mcin. This decision rankled the British from I'rimc Minister Churchill down the line. The American view, as expressed by Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower in Crusade in Europe is that Berlin "was not the logical or the most desirable objective," and that, moreover, "in all probability the Russian forces would be ground the. city long before we could reach there." Today, 20 years after the unconditional surrender of Nazi Germany, 20 years of what might be called the cold peace, the nation and Berlin, its truncated capital, remain symbols of • a divided world. West Germany is sovereign, prosperous, and a North Atlantic Treaty ally. Sovereignty and participation in the Atlantic defense system were formalized simultaneously 10 years ago, on almost the precise 10th anniversary of V-E Day. Although Soviet Russia's postwar satellites grow increasingly restive. East Germany liter 20 years is firmly rooted in the Communist bloc. Russia on last June .12 signed a separate 20-year treaty of friendship with the German Democratic Republic. Berlin itself is prosperous but still split by the East Germans' wall of shame. To us the Western portion is a window on the Soviet empire, also a showplace for democracy. To the Russians and East Germans, Berlin is a "cancer," spreading poison. To its mayor, Willy Brandt, the city is "the clamp that holds these divided people together." Reunification of Germany on the basis of self-determination was declared, in a tripartite declaration of policy issued simultaneously in Washington, London, and Paris on last June 26, to be a "fundamental objective" ol the United States, Great Britain, and France. The declaration was the response of the three Western powers to the Soviet-East German treaty. The West German government was closely consulted in its preparation. The treat)' and the Western declaration did little to alter the positions maintained bv the East and the West over the past 16 years. Much of the tension in Berlin lias been relieved since the Khrushchev ultimatum of Nov. 27, 1958 has been allowed to drift and dwindle. West Germany has built up a considerable trade with East Germany, while holding her at arm's length diplomatically. ..'.. -Mayor Brandt while visiting this country last month predicted that the Soviet Union and East Germany would use the 20th anniversary of-the German surrender to launch a new propaganda offensive. Even after 20 years the cjjiestion of reunification is not beyond the talking stage, and each side talks largely to hear its own voice. Meanwhile, what is not mentioned in the weary catechism is that the knitting together of two systems which have developed separately over 20 years would take a considerable amount of doing. Give Her Credit- A young lady in San Francisco is trying to prove it is possible to live for a full month on a credit card without spending a cent of cash. Her name is Ann Ayleen Foley. Her sponsor i.s a big bank which by sheer coincidence happens to issue the, particular brand of credit card she is using. Without taking anything away from Miss Foley, it is only stating a fact to say that even if she achieves her goal, she actually hasn't done such a much. ' Many resourceful Americans are demonstrating that it is possible to go through life these days with practically no cash. They live in mortgaged homes, drive friendly financed cars, buy gas, oil, tires, parts and food on tick, and dress in high fashion on convenient charge accounts. But they do, alas, need just a little cash now and then. So all America is waiting to learn if Miss Foley can find a way to use her credit card on vending machines, parking meters, public pay phones and other public facilities where up to now a coin in the slot is worth a million credit cards in the hand. The luck of die Irish to you Miss Ann Avleen Foley. We hope it's in the credit cards for you lo come in a winner. Think what it will mean to the rest of us! Help, Please, Mother Nature The social oddities into which we capricious mortals are drifting are emphasized by a couple of recent news items. To wit: • The head of the world's largest manufacturer of men's and boys' clothing has found it necessary to publicly state his concern over creeping femininity in men's fashions. • Sponsors of the "Early Bird" commercial communications satellite are wondering if the public will tolerate a delay of six-tenths of a second in receiving replies during their transatlantic telephone conversations. These are sobering and significant commentaries on the trend and pace of spaceage living. It is getting harder by the hour to tell boys from girls. Skin-tight pants, fancy boots, pinched-in waists, elaborate hairdos and even plunging necklines are no longer exclusive with girls. Mercy no! And as for hustle and bustle, we eager beaver breadwinners are carrying our eager-bea- vering to fantastic extremes. If a busy, busy businessman misses one section of a revolving door on the way to his office these days, his schedule is fouled up for the next two weeks. Maybe these social quirks are mere passing foibles and will go away in the cold, gray dawn' of common sense. If they don't, heaven help us. Mother Nature, can't you please pass a law? A writer on child behavior says that many boys just don't like to fight. Maybe that accounts for some confirmed bachelors. In the space market "Occupation" on a form lie was filling out, a girdle manufacturer wrote "Meat packer". Give Tito Something to Chew On The International P.E.N. Club, a world organization of writers, is scheduled to meet this summer at Bled, Yugoslavia. But certain French, and British writers, in protest against the jailing of the Yugoslav writer, Mithajlo Mihajlov, for his criticism of Stalin's prison camps, are threatening to boycott the meeting. One hopes that this spirit will spread. If nobody shows up in Bled, it will be wonderful. Or, better than that, the P.E.N. delegations should go to Yugoslavia and put the Mihajlov matter high on their agenda. Let's have a resounding international incident out of thisl The Yugoslav dictator Tito clapped Milnjlov into prison for saying little more about the crimes of Stalin than Khrushchev himself had said. Moreover, Mihajlov's description of Stalin's camps, which appear in his "Summer in Moscow, 1964," relies heavily on what Russian novelists and memoir writers have themselves set down on paper about the grisly topic. The Russians quoted by Mihajlov were not censored in home publications such as "Novy Mir." and it quite amazed the young Yugoslav visitor to Moscow to discover that "Soviet magazines are beginning to look like the annals of the crimes of Philip II's inquisition." i "What can I do?" so Mihajlov has asked. "1 have more respect for the Russian people than for the Soviet authority. I abused no one's confidence. In my travel notes I did not write a word about my conversations with well-known Russian writers without first receiving their permission to do so." Another matter for the P.E.N. agenda might be the tribulations of Valery Taris, whose incarceration in a Soviet "mental clinic" was mentioned in this column more than a year ago. After his release from the "clinic," Taris smuggled an autobiographical novel about his incarceration out of Russia, and it has been .published In part in the Russian exile maga- sine "Gram" in Germany. It is not the first time that Taris has had his work published in the W«t .Hi* shocking thing about Taris's descrip- MPH tf fht mMM asylum to which he wat committed for five months is that there were no crazy people in it unless it be considered madness to object to totalitarianism. The inmates consisted of three main categories: Young people who had unsuccessfully tried to commit suicide because they refused to accept their lot under communism with "traditional Slavic resignation"; the so-called "Americans" who had been arrested for the "crime" of speaking frankly to western tourists or to the .personnel at western embassies; and the "idlers" who had not tried to find any particular place in Soviet society. The people in charge of the "clinic" were not doctors; they were simply police officers. What Taris complains about is that Stalin's concentration camp arrests were continued in Khrushchev's de-Stalinized Russia under the name of "psychopathological deportations." He writes: "They cannot buy me. Stupid asses: Don't they understand that I have left them forever and now I am their enemy. Hospital room seven, where I used to live, is a high school of hate." Still another matter for the P.E.N. agenda is the continued detention in a Yugoslav prison of Milovan Djilas, a first-rate writer who displeased Tito by saying that a "new class" society had grown up in Soviet Russia under Marxism, with the bureaucrats replacing the capitalists of old in living high off the hog and oppressing the "underlying population." Yugoslavia is supposed to be a "nonaligned" nation. Yet it presumes to jail writers who are critical of the Soviet Union while it permits criticism of America. A P.E.N. club that is concerned with the problems of writers must raise the issues of free expression when it meets in Yugoslavia this summer or else give up all pretense to speak for the members of the author's profession. If Tito doesn't approve of free talk about censorship and about government detention of candid authors, the world should know about it. And there are other nations that would bp happy to play host to the P.E.N. delegations. Oh Well, Every Little Bit Helps Today in World Affairs By DAVID LAWRENCE WASHINGTON — Whether or not some of the countries in Latin America disapprove of the sending of United States military forces into the Dominican Republic, the realistic fact is that basic international law approves such rescue meas u r e s when the lives of foreigners are endangered and no other police force to protect them is available. The charter of the Organization of American States provides, in effect, that, where there is an established government capable of discharging its international obligations, "no state or group of states has the right to intervene, directly or indirectly, for any reason whatever, in the internal or external affairs of any other state." But this does not exclude intervention when the local government has broken down. The United States has openly declared that it has no desire to participate in the political affairs of the Dominican Republic. it ft ft There are indeed, even more pertinent articles in the charter of the Organization of American States on this point. Articles 7 and 8 say: "Every American state has the duty to respect the rights enjoyed by every other state in accordance with internation a 1 law. "The fundamental rights of states may not be Impaired in any mannei whatsoever." These provisions are in complete accord with precedents of international law, which have always held that the lives of foreigners resident in a country must be protected against any violence and that, if the existing government is incapable of giving such protection, the state or states whose nationals are threatened may take appropriate action in defense. Another article in the charter provides that "the territory of a state is inviolable" and that "military occupation" or other measures of force must not be taken against it even temporarily. The plain objective of such a provision, however, is to prevent territorial acquisition. The United States has no hostility toward the Dominican people, and, of course, has no intention of annexing a single foot of territory or of interfering with a government once established. ft ft ft Among the principles affirmed in the charter of the Organization of American states are the following: "International law is the standard of conduct of states in their reciprocal relations; "An act of aggression against one American state is an act of aggression against all the other American states." In the present instance, the United States had detected an effort on the part of the Communist imperialist regimes to take over the Dominican Republic. This has precipitated a situation which not only endangers the lives of all foreigners, but also could extinguish self-government altogether in the Domican Republic. This means that the U n i t e d States was obligated by the charter of the Organization of American States to exert military as well as moral force gainst the aggressors. There will always be a dispute as to how much evidence was available beforehand to the American government concern- Ing Communist infiltration. But there can be no doubt that a •tate of anarchy developed in Canto Domingo and that It was a wise precaution for President Johnson to order American marines to land, not only to protect American citizens but to prevent the injury of many innocent persons in the Dominican Republic who were in no way participants in the quarrels between the various factions. By announcing at once that the United States would withdraw its forces as soon as the OAS could put into effect its own peace plan, President Johnson followed the procedures provided for in the charter of the States. The duty of a strong nation like the United States is clear. It must protect the weaker nations. If an emergency arises, it can act alone, ft <r ft The proof of the sincerity of the Washington government is to be found in its open declaration that it will join with other countries in the OAS to help preserve the independence of the Dominican Republic. For the really significant provision of the OAS charter is its statement on collective security, which reads as follows: "Every act of aggression by a state against the territorial integrity or the inviolability of the territory or against the sovereignty or political independence of an American state shall be considered an act of aggression against the other American states." The United States action, therefore, is based upon two points—the protection of the lives of foreign nationals, and the preservation of the territorial integrity and political independence of the Dominican Republic against acts of aggression by imperalistic governments. This was the fundamental principle originally proclaimed in the Monroe Doctrine, and it has been preserved in essence in the charter of the Organization of American States. (Copyright, 1965, New York Herald Tribune Inc.) The Washington Scene By RAY CROMLEY WASHINGTON — (NBA) United States military landings in the Dominican Republic are part of an overall quicker-reacting United States policy toward Communist moves in Latin America. Faster, stronger react ions will be a pattern, whether the Reds move in the Carribbean or the continent. The technique will vary, in The Dominican Republic it wasn't difficult to get the "in" group to invite United States forces. In some places, American troops won't be advisable. But for certain, the U.S. reaction will be fast. U. S. officials hope an international Latin-American hemisphere fast-acting police force can be created. U. S. Forces would undoubtedly predominate. This group would move speedily to Red-threatened spots. But whether or not the Latin countries agree to the use of force, Washington plans to act— with troops if necessary —whenever a similar crisis treatens. ft ft ft The legal authority—the pronouncement by the Organization of American States that communism is incompatible with the American hemisphere system. In part, this new policy is a result of U. S. experience in Cuba, The Castro take- over taught the difficulty of ousting a Communist dictator once he gets into power and sets up neighborhood secret police and and Informer systems.

The Cuban exile milita r y groups have folded for all practical purposes. Key U. S. diplomats believe their cause is hopeless, that invasion by Cuban refugees is out of the picture for the foreseeable future. The United States government has even stopped funnel i n g training and organizat i o n a 1 funds to these military exile set-ups. What's next? Colombia, Venezuela and Guatamala head the Red take-over target list, as of now. Communist guerrilla forces are active in all three countries. ft * ft Columbian Reds intermittently raid towns. They have held districts under their control for periods of time. The guerrillas in Guatemala seem to have been contained for the time being by government forces. The underground in Venezuela is not large, but vigorous. It has received small but important arms shipments from Cuba. Had the Reds taken over the Dominican Republic, Haiti's very shaky government would certainly have fallen aim o s t immediately. Two other shaky regimes are high on the Red target list—Honduras and Haiti. Interestingly, the Domin i c a n Republic was not on the top Communist priority list. It was a target of opportunity which came up suddenly. The Reds were able to move fast. U. S. officials now think the time is ripe for strong action. Despite public Latin attacks on "Yankee imperialism", the thinking here Is that there is a great underlying respect for U. S. motives, a strong fear of communism through most of Latin America and a real desire by many for the U. S. to take incisive leadership. A ft ft As the foreign minister of one of the major Latin Amer lean countries told an American ambassador: "I wish you had moved in on Castro's Cuba militarily during the missile crisis. Because you didn't, you've left Castro able to operate safely in a sanctuary like the Yalu River, bordering Manchuria, was for the Chinese Reds In Korea. "Of course, if you had moved in, I would have immediately gotten up and given a strong anti-American speech, condemning The National Whirligig •» Madura rJtwsMPtf •jmrtleatai By ANDREW TULLT WASHINGTON—Today I am not going to denounce Mother's Day because some years ago my mother told me not to. Live and let live, said the lady, and this is by way of showing her that she's still boss even though she has departed this vale and Is now busy running heaven. Several years ago I filled a couple of typewritten pages with a demand that Mother's Day be made Illegal. My point was that if you approved of the girl who brought you into the world you didn't need a special day organized by a passel of storekeepers to tell her so. Buy her an occasional bunch of posies, or a martini, was my suggestion. Write her a let t e r telling her she's got more glamour than Kim Novak, Be as nice a guy as you can, so she'll figure she did a good Job on you. ft ft ft MADE MOTHER SICK —I figured I was on solid ground because my mother hated Mother's Day. She complained that people made too much fuss about it and she always wound up with a sick headache from all the noisy professions of affection. It also, she said, made her feel old, and she had no desire to feel old be* cause she was a mere girlish 81. But my mother was not pleased with that column, and she stepped in to exert her influence, which was considerable. First she wrote me a letter saying why didn't I write about Mr. Eisenhower's golf game or Tito's paunch or why don't they cut taxes? (My mother lived in Massachusetts and Bay Staters are real touch about the Internal Revenue Service). I replied rather petulantly that I ne v e r thought my own mother wou 1 d try to prevent me from earning an honest living and did s h e want her youngest son to starve? It was left that way, for a while. ft ft ft NO RIBBING, NO SHAWLS-Several weeks later, however, I had occasion to visit this charming lady and after the kisses were out of the way and she had finished telling me, as usual, that I looked a little peaked. She took me in hand. She noted that Mother's Day would be coming around shortly and she was going to have to lay down the law. No more anti- Mother's Day pieces, she ordered. Find some other way to mulct your employer, she said. Sure, she didn't care for the festive day herself; it still made her feel like an exhibit at a county fair. And she hoped, Just once, that nobody would give her another danged shawl. But, she went on, most other mothers seemed to like the idea, and so did children who had not been exposed to the subversion of a city desk. Perhaps, she said, it was needed to remind kids they had mothers and besides, it was good for business. So drop the subject, she said firmly. ft ft ft EVEN SENT A CARD — I dropped it. I decided forever to exchew minority reports holding that Mother's Day was a fraud on both mothers and children. I resolved never again to suggest that Mother's Day made mothers uncomfortable because it held them up as super females brim in i n g with goodness and w i t h no bad, or interesting habits. That year, along with the usual gift, I sent my mother a card dripping with soupy sentiment. I wanted to give her a bicycle, but I knew her three daughters would be watching. This year, all I can do is hope they don't stock any shawls Up There. Dental Health By W^ LAWRENCE, D. D. S. She looked sad. Her right cheek was red, swollen, and tender. Her right eye was partly closed. The side of her nose and her lips were swollen and red. The whole side of her face "beat like a pulse." Neck glands were not involved and strangely enough she was not in pain. "About two months ago," Mrs. Josephine P. said, "this tooth on my upper right side because sensitive to hot and cold. Then the tooth seemed to get out of place and when I closed my mouth it kept getting in the way. I couldn't eat because it hurt so much when I bit on it. The gums around the too t h puffed up on and off, but two days ago it began to really swell. I was up the whole night before with a toothache, but when it began to swell it "stopped hurting." The upper right first pre-molar tooth (fourth from front) seemed to be the one involved. Gum tissue around it was bluish red, spongy and swollen. It probably was filled with sup- purative matter (pus). The tooth was mobile in all directions, and could even be moved up and down in its socket. The tooth behind it was loose too, but the eye-tooth in front was firm and healthy. Day in History By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Today is Saturday, May 8, the 128th day of 1965. There are 237 days left in the year. Today's highlight In history: On this date in 1945, at a schoolhouse in Rheims, France, the Germans signed the unconditional surrender of all their land, sea and air forces. On this date In 1429, Joan of Arc raised the Siege of Orleans. in 1846, the opening battle of the Mexican War took place at Palo Alto, Tex. The victory of Gen. Zachary Taylor's army was over a Mexican force outnumbering his almost 2-1. In 1918, German troops entered the Russian city of Ros- tov. In 1942, the Battle of Coral Sea ended in victory of the Allies. In 1945, former President Herbert Hoover appealed for immediate action to save Europe's war victims from starvation. Ten years ago—British Foreign Secretary Harold Macmillan was named the first chairman of the Western European Union Council. Five years ago — A Chinese Nationalist plane crashed in southern Formosa, killing the pilot and seven on the ground. One year ago — President Johnson, in speeches on a Georgia tour, appealed for an end to racial barriers. you for interfering in the internal affairs of a Latin American country. "After the speech I would have opened a bottle of my best whisky and invited you over for a private victory celebration." X rays disclosed a large Irregular shadow that enveloped almost all of the roots of both teeth, first and second premolars. Mrs. Josephine P. was s u f- fering from periodontal abscess. It probably began with gum infection and some bone loss around the tooth, developing into a gum pocket or pyorrhea pocket. Then more bone loss and deeper pocket until all the bone around the tooth was infected. It's possible that if treatment had begun in the early stages, these teeth could have been saved by periodontal treatment: cleaning out the pockets and trimming away the diseased gums. If necessary, root canal therapy could have been dona by removing diseased nerves, draining absecess, sterilizing root canals and fitting them with gutta percha or silver points. But* it was too late for that. Mrs. P's teeth would have to be extracted. She had a slight fever and she "looked sick." Penicillin and warm mo u t h washes were prescribed. The extractions would have to wait until she was over this red hot infection. Please send your questions about dental health to Dr. Lawrence in care of this pap e r . While he cannot answer each letter personally, letters of general interest will be answered in this column.
