IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE "The Doily Globe is on independent newspaper, supporting what it believei to b« right and opposing what if believes fo be wrong, regardless of party polities, 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 Common Market Crisis Representatives of five uf the six European Common Market nations will meet in Brussels on Mom'lav in an atfoinpf to work rmf a str:i- trgv for dealing with Prt'sidcnt Charles de Gaullr of France. The fix e are not in agreement among themselves. Belgian and I.n\fin- bourp representatives "wore reluctant to go ahead with the Council of Ministers meeting \vithour French Foreign Minister Couve de Mnr\ ille. The split had been evident before France on July 1 announced its boycott of forthcoming meetings of the Six. The Belgians and the Lnxembourgeois vvere safely in the French camp in the dispute over (arm price supports which precipitated the bovcott Siding against France were Italy. 'West Germany, and the Netherlands, with the Dutch supplving the leadership. To oversimplify, the question dividing the Common Market is whether the grouping should be little more than a customs union and trading partnership or whether it should be the nucleus of a political!--- integrated Europe. De Gaulle, envisioning a loosely associated Europe "from the A'lantic to the Urals.' pulled out to forestall any- possibility of a Common Market suppranational structure handling the budget. This may have been fortuitous from DC Gaulle's point of view. The European Common Market members had undertaken as of next Jan. 1 to make certain tvpes of decision by a majority vote. Until then all decisions require a majority vote. Thus De Gaulle faced a real decision on sovereignty only six months away. When De Gaulle won a major Common Market victor)' on grain prices last December, the American correspondent Claire Sterling wrote "By goading the Six into breaking the long deadlock on farm prices, he (De Gaulle) has in fact pushed them so irresver- sibly toward complete economic' integration that Tione of them—France least of all—could completely back out of the Common Market any more." The sentence has an ironic ring today, but it may yet prove sound. The political potent French National Fann- ers' Syndicate is reported restive France is the farmer of Europe. France in the past three years has been allotted 70 per cent of the Common Market from subsidies. Over the next five years the total is slated to rise to $1.2 billion. French fanners have been counting on the expected free flow of farm goods across the Common Market borders. France's industrialists also expect much from the Market. "Our primary objective is to build 'Europe,' which means in the immediate future the. European Economic Community whose creation you (Americans) have encouraged, and to establish its industrial framework," President Georges Villiers of the Federation of French Industries (CNPF) told U.S. Ambassador Charles Bohlen at a recent reception. And Villiers went on to say that the Mar- ket's industrial "integration" is "fundamental" in the view of French industrialists. France's fanners and industrialists have had little to lose by De Gaulle's politicking so far. But now that the Dutch, along with the Italians and the West Germans, have wearied of what they call French chantage— blackmail —the Common Market advantages are jeopardized. If the peasant and the businessman should speak with one voice, even Charles de Gaulle might listen. A Life Devoted to a Free Korea Syngman Rhee lived fully half his 90 years in e.vile from his native Korea. It was in exile that he died. All of that long life was devoted to fighting lor the freedom of his country and his people- first against its own royal rulers, then the Japanese, then the Communists. He never achieved that goal entirely. When freedom came, it came to only half the nation. And in the end he was defeated not by any external foes but by his own single-minded, dictatorial nature, by the poverty and ignorance of his people, by the scheming and corruption of those about him For his political beliefs, he paid with seven years of imprisonment, after first undergoing such oriental tortures as carrving a 20-pound weight around his neck and having his fingers mashed and lighted sticks placed under his nails. Half a century later he still had the habit of blowing on his fingertips. Freed under an amnesty in 1904, Rhee came to the United States to study and, a Christian, won a doctor of philosophy degree in theology. Japan had now taken over Korea and Rhee went to Hawaii in earn' on his political and religious work. Tn 1919, a nationalist group elected him president in absentia of a provisional Korean government Throughout the era between the two World Wars, Rhee carried his plea for freedom for Korea to the League of Nations and any head of state who would listen to him. But it was not until the defeat of Japan in 1945 that independence finally came—und with it partition and the setting of the stage for even greater tragedy for the Korean people. Rhee was elected president of South Korea in 1948, and served a second and a third term, A month after his election to a fourth term in 1960 at the age of 85, student-led demonstrations forced his resignation. Rhee returned to e.vile in Hawaii under a cloud of charges of corruption and rigged elections. To the last, Rhee maintained that the cease- fire in Korea was a humiliating defeat. To the last he doubtless dreamed of someday returning to lead a free and unified nation. Korea owes much t- " •••\rman Rhee, a patriot without honor in hi land The time will come when Koreans \ '>c free enough from the fetters of the past and of the present to accord him the place he deserves in their history.

Inc.I By John Chamberlain The three Baltic countries of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia have been "observing" the twenty-third anniversary of their incorporation into the Soviet Union. The highlights of the celebration were speeches by Premier Alexsei Kosygin (who told -"tens of thousands" of Latvians in Riga that the U..S. was an aggressor in Viet Nam) and top Soviet theoretician Mikhail Suslov (who chose Vilna, the capital of Lithuania, for a harangue that echoed Kosy- gin's opinions-. For Moscow's Communists to choose Riga and Vilna as sites to denounce any other aggression than their own, is, in the light of any objective history, a most cynical business. It is precisely as if Bluebeard were to celebrate die anniversary of his original wedding 25 years later in the presence of his eighth wife, who might legitimately wonder what her spouse would be up to next. The Bluebeard parallel is apt in every way. For, like the wives who had been done away with by Bluebeard under grisly circumstances, not many of the Baltic states' inhabitants who \vere originally "voted" into the Soviet Union in 1940 by the action of stooge parliaments are around today to do any celebrating. The "eighth-wife" "Latvians" and "Lithuanians' who were addressed by Kosygin and Suslov must have included thousands who are not even of Baltic blood. For twenty-five years Ukrainians and Russians have been systematically moved into the Baltic states. And the original Latv ians, Lithuanians and Estonians have been subjected to a calculated policy of "genocide bv diffusion.' Mass deportations have been carried out ever since the first year of Soviet occupation. In 1940-41, the year in which the Stalin-Hitler pact was in force, 34,000 were either murdered or deported from Latvia; 48,000 from Lithuania; 60,000 from Estonia. Then the Germans moved in. In 1945, when the Soviets returned, any peasant who resisted the seizure of his ancestral farmland c-ould count on being sub- jfcted to "voluntary leave to work places es- sential to the fatherland," which usually turned out to be Siberia. About 10 per cent of the total population disappeared in this way. And a million Russians seeped in to take the places of the displaced Baits. Today, non-Baits constitute about •20 per cent of the Baltic lands population. What the little Baltic states had to celebrate on the twenty-fifth anniversary of their seizure and forced marriage to the Soviet Bluebeard is meager enough. Those who keep up with the course of Russian agriculture, which consistently goes From bad to worse, offer some horrendous figures to show what has happened to fanning in the Baltic lands. Grain production in Latvia, for instance, declined from 1, 780,000 tons to 611,000 tons ovei a twenty-year period. In the same time-span Latvian'cattle dropped from 1,210,000 to 886,000. Lithuanian cattle declined form 1,381,000 to 1,158,000; Estonian from 706,000 to 486,000. It's a picture of old men on the collective farms in Baltic lands that were cultivated by the young twenty-five years ago. The young who resisted Sovietization of their acres have gone to the virgin lands of Siberia, there to lose their national identity. Those who decided to live on terms of amity with the new masters and become Russified have gone into the cities, where the pay is better and where it is possible to get a Sauna bath on Saturday night. Kosygin and Suslov had the gall of two brass monkeys to choose the Baltic cities of Rign und Y'ilna in which to complain about American "aggression." But who in the West has even bothered to notice iff Only a few Americanized Baits who wonder where the old post- World War II enthusiasm for captive nations week has gone. If we don't see the writing on the wall the time will come when some fu- true Bluebeard—oops, Kosygin—will be using S'aigon as the site for the celebration of the incorporation of South Viet Nam in the Communist sphere and giving forth with a speech on U.S. aggression agaiusl "liberators" in Taiwan, or Australia, or even Hawaii itself.

"/ come tttn /or gall stones, but when they showed mt the bill, I got ufcersf" Today in National Affairs By DAVID LAURENCE WASHINGTON — Presid e n t Johnson made a wise choice in selecting Associate Justice Ar- ;hur J. Goldberg of the Supreme Court to become U. S. ambassador to the United Nations to replace the late Adlai Stevenson. The president recognized the need for a man of national and international stature—someo n e who could carry on extemporaneous debat in the United Nations Assembly or the Security Council and make an effective impression with h i s words. Another basic reason for Mr. Johnson's decision undoubted 1 y was Justice Goldberg's keen perception of the many leg a 1 questions that affect gove r n- ments throughout the world today in their relations with each other. Justice Goldberg has spok e n often before national and inter-j national law organizations here and abroad. While the Uni ted Nations has among its ambassadors from other countries men who are versed in diploma-1 cy, some of those who have proved most effective in the' past had a deep insight into international law. « « * Justice Goldberg's appo i n t - ed Nations and the country has come to know him through the numerous exposures he will have on TV. It will be recalled that in 1960 Henry Cabot Lodge. while serving as ambassador to the U. N., was nominated for the vice presidency by the Republican convention. Mr. Goldberg's previous identification with the labor movement could be an important asset. Not only was he general counsel of the United Steel Workers Union—winning the respect of many of the men on the management side of the steel industry—but he also was able 1n his post as secretary of labor in President Kennedy's cabinet to make his influence felt even further. This is a backgrou n d \vhich can be useful to him in his new post in the United Nations. For in many countries the! labor problem has become more! and more significant in its rela-i tion to national governme n t a 1 i policies. On the whole, it would seem' apparent that, since there was no one sufficiently outstanding; on the diplomatic side to impress foreign governme n t s , President Johnson came to the conclusion that he could add to the prestige of the United States at the U.N. by selecting a man the highest The National Whirligig <R«IMMd by UeClur* N«W«P»B«T Syndicate) By ANDREW TULLY Lake Wallenpaupack, Pa., — Here in the mountain air, there is time to ponder the serious failures of American civilization. There is time, that is, to indulge in a lament over the dec*' line and fall of an ambrosia called ice cream. It is called Ice cream, but in most cases it is nothing of the sort. Call for ice cream In the average chomium-trlmmed emporium of today, and you are served an outrage that Is at once gelatinous and crystallized. Its chief ingredients are cornstarch and air. On a lucky day, this horror will not be emetic, but merely nauseous. WHEN ICE CREAM WAS ICE CREAM —After the muttered oaths comes a period oi Intense and painful nostalg I a . j Memory intrudes of a day when! Ice crenm tasted like Ice cream, j not like some frightful concoc- 1 tion committed by a Borgia for' the liquidation of a troublesome. prince. Memory speaks softly of an ice cream parlor named i Dakin's in a little Massachu-l setts town, where ice cream was made on the premises by hands which were certainly ex- j pert and which must have been i loving. I Dakir's ice cream was soft, but not too soft. It had substance ; the customer with good teeth could bite into it if he so chose. It obviously was made with plenty of cream: ice' crystals were outlawed. The] flavors were authentic, not syn-j thetic. Your palate told you that ! Dakin's was well-stocked with vanilla beans and fresh strawberries from Cheney's patch. The chocolate was choc olatecolored: neither beige nor mo-j cha in shade. AND ICE CREAM SODAS — In my boyhood, the tad with an understanding parent was taken to Dakin's for ice cream after every visit to the dentist. Doc Johnson was gentle, but he was not painless, and t h e only thing that restrained a boy from running away from home and marrying a b a r e- back rider was the knowledge that a Dakin Ice cream soda beckoned down the street. Ice cream sodas were made in those days, not synthesized. First a generous spurt of chocolate syrup, then a half-pint of rich milk from Bill Bouvler's farm, then two blobs of i c e cream, and finally the gent 1 e intrusion of just the right amount of soda water to create the syrup-coated bubbles on top A boy neither ate nor drank that ice cream soda; he lived it. 6 6 ft A GOURMANDIZINO HERO— In the life of a rather indolent schoolboy who could never field a pround ball to his left, Babe Ruth was merely a hero. Genuine envy was reserved for an upper classman named Bill Power, who wangled an o d d jobs career at Dakin's. The pay was small, but there were no budding capitalists in m y crowd. Bill was permitted t o eat all the ice cream he could hold, and his capacity was that of a bottomless pit. Such gourmandizing never hurt Billy, of course, because he was eating real ice cream, not something out of a box packed three months before. Mr. Kakin, who happily went to his reward many years ago, would have gone along with a wry comment uttered by Adlai Stevenson in the dining room of a midwest- ern hotel during the 1956 campaign. Chatting with newsmen while struggling with a noxious mound of what the menu callously described as ice cream, Stevenson paused to sigh hugely. "Y o u know," he confided, "the only time I'm ever nostalgic about the days of William McKinley is when I try to eat someting like this." The Washington Scene the United Nations. This would! be a significant change. Presi-j dent Johnson said he had asked the justice to serve because there was no more import ant task ahead today than the achievement of "a world where all men may live in peace with the hope of justice under the rule of law."

Veteran observers have been saying for months it was bound to happen; and smiling wryly at adminis-< tration efforts to put any kind! of good face on things. They attend with Interest to the new, darker notes President ! Johnson and his top men have been sounding over Viet Nam for about a fortnight. The belief, of course, is that the way is being prepared for fur ther' enlargement of the war and for considerably longer casualty lists. Against the gloomier back- paintng, his displeasure over' Viet Nam criticisms from Republican House leader Gerald Ford is seen clearly. 6 £ 6 ' Ford's stress on the fuller use of air and sea assault looks to some observers like an attempt to get the best of t w o worlds —to suggest a continued Republican posture of miliuncy against Vietnamese Reds while avoiding responsibility for thei mounting burden of home-bound coffins. Whatever step-up may follow in the sea lanes and in the air over North Viet Nam, the Johnson administration appears heavily committed to the idea that the war is to be stalemated — if not won — on the soil of South Viet Nam. Given that commi t m e n t, a long and perhaps very bloody fight is the only visible course ahead. The outlook Is not brightened by the newest threatening noises from Soviet Premier Kosygin, flung out over the head of visiting U.S. emissary Averell Harriman. Peking offers a loud counterpart. It was predictable, too, that the McNamara - Lodge mission to Saigon would collect a fresh ration of bad news. The buildup of Viet Cong and North Vietnamese regular forces i n South Viet Nam goes on. Supply-line bombings ha v e not seriously stemmed the southward flow of men and material. Sweeping Viet Cong losses have not stopped recruitment of new men. If the President, then, n o longer deems it wise to sound notes of good cheer over Viet Nam, there will be many to hail this turn. From the 1954 Geneva treaty on, the historical record is awash with declarations of false optimism from responsible American sources here and on the scene at Saigon. Some analysts would forgive them, in small part, on the ground they were simply responding to the American peoples known distaste for steady bad news. Thomas E. Dewey once remarked: "With the American p e o p le it is either everything Is fine and off to the ball game, o r everything is terrible and off to war." Obviously, the President, i n alvancing his "new realism" over Viet Nam, has to be careful about overdoing the gloom. Americans —not to ment i o n other free peoples — ml g h t buy too much of it. Failure by the Viet Cong to achieve really signal victories in the remaining months of the monsoon season could have R lasting effect on their battle position. The value of hit-and- run guerrilla raids on widening, hardening U.S. enclaves could diminish sharply if not followed by bigger gains. There is another point of consequence. Critics assail our military buiid-up as converting the Vietnamese conflict into a "Korea-style" local war, invoking memories of grinding, profitless land action. But If we do thus convert the war to that style, Moscow and crucial link in Red world strategy —the notion that "wars of liberation." legitimate or otherwise, can be seized upon by Red to subvert free lands and advance the cause of communism. Wars of liberation have been declared by Moscow and Peking to be the only kind safe from the perils of escalation to n u- clear holocaust. If. however, America and other free nations respond forcefully to convert to "local war" every Red-hijacked war of liberation, Commun i s t reliance on this tactic may wear thin. The present noises from Moscow and Peking arc not cheering. Nevertheless, that are an admission that their neat little subterfuge —inventing of stealing the war of liberation —is not working. They face local war or big war, with all t h e attendant perils which they as well as we week to avoid.
