Must Help End Colonialism Secretary of State Dulles, who has not been as sure-footed a foreign affairs leader as expected, nevertheless was in firm stride when he declared the United States should promote self-government in the Near East and Asia and give no aid or appearance of aid to colonialism. On his recent tour of those regions, Dulles found what others before him have found. hT enative populations desperately want independence. They want an end to colonial control by Britain, rFance, or any other. Insofar as the United States seems to ally itself closely to the aims of these governments in Asia and the Middle East, it *oo will be looked piion with considerable disfavor. And so long as Russian or Chinese Communists profess to espouse the nationalistic goals of these peoples, the Reds are likely to have some measure of the success they have had in Turin-China in taking over and distorting movements for independence. We feel — and with good reason — that the Asiatics an dNcar Eastern folk who allow this to happen are incredibly naive politically. They do not realize they are trading British and French overlords for Communist masters whose tyranny is unparalleled. Yet, in simple fairness, \ve cannot hope to impress them with the earnestness of our concern for their freedom and our own if we do not help to lift the colonial yoke from them. Native Vietnamese in Tndo-China do not care to fight and doe for French rulers. No effort to enlist large native forces in behalf of freedom there is like- to succeed until France gives (he people full control of thei rown political destinies. We canno tordcr the French to do this. But we must try hard to persuade them. In the same way, the British must ultimately turn over control in Malaya, must get their armed forces out of Egypt (after proper safeguards for Suez are'set up). And the French must begin to think seriously of yielding hegemony over their North African colonies along the Mediterranean. These moves will he hitter medicine for the once-great colonial powers. The best they can hope for is somthow to keep the colonial lands within the French or the British family of nations, as with the British Commonwealth pattern. But there is no alternative. Continued colonialism, ir.d continued help for it from us, carries with It th« risk of disaster in the Middle Enst and Asia. Only communism can be the gainer, and in these territories communism already has gained far loo much. Views of Others Don't Sell Private Industry Short H will b 15 years or more before atomic power is available commercially on a competitive basis with present electric power, Dr. Harry A. Wlnne, vice-president of General Electric Company, predicted at the dedication of the university of Rhode Island's new Pasture Chemical Laboratory. Large atomic-electric power stations could be built within five years, he said, if someone wan to to pay for them, but the cost would be "terrific." The atomic bomb and the nuclear-powered submarine are "gadgets" built quickly by a "crosh" progra mwlth unlimited funds because of very special circumstances — the stupidity of the human race, or part-i of the human race, which brings about one war after another. To keep atomic-electric power out of the gadget" class, the industry must develop on a sound basis, Dr. Wlnne said. That will be when It can compete with conventional electric power without requiring a government-supported weapons program for the Plutonium produced as a by-product. Yes, we believe there is a great future for atomic power commercially. And we also believe that we're selling private Industry short when we speculate that the huge cost of the process for making this power available makes it mandatory that the government do the spending. Unless we miss our guess, private industry could produce atomic energy much cheaper than does the government. Our chief contention for this is that everything else the government engages In such as the production of electric power, costs much more than when the same process Is carried out under private supervision and minus government red tape and the host of workers who are paid for doing nothing. In the not-too-distant future, we believe It will be possible for a city to establish an atomic plant and pipe the energy to Ite customers for heat, lighting, cooling, etc., In much the same manner that gas or electricity is furnished today. Expensive? Yes, but it Is also expensive to set up and maintain nu electric or a gas plant. Don't sell private Industry short. —Rocky Mount (N.C.) Telegram. The Fireside Chat Not everyone will agree that President Elsen- hower's Ideas on taxes and the national defense arc the best. But let's look at the criticism. Some say taxes have got to be cut sooner than the President wants to cut. The politicians arc afraid that unless taxes arc cut. the GOP will lose its weak hold on Congress. Certain sections of Big Business wan^. tax cuts for selfish reasons, echoing the notion that what l.s good for big Business is naturally good for the country. But Bis Labor and the Farm Bloc and the Veterans Bloc use the same line of reasoning. They can't all be right. Then there are tli'o amateur strategists who think the President has cut the Air Force too much. But If President Elsenhower with his military background doesn't know what the armed services budget should be, who does? The politicians who are worrying about losing the 1954 congressional elections would do well to remember that the voters last year expressed a far greater preference for Dwight D. Eisenhower than they did for a Republican Congress. If the politicians want the GOP to keep (and slvenylhen its hold) on Congress, they had better start backing the man on whose coattails many of them rode Into office last November. —Klngsport (Tenn.)

Between the Crosses, Row on Row *efer Edson's Washington Column — Flood Control Developments Present Two Problems to Ike WASHINGTON — NEA — Al- nost unnoticed by city folk, a new ind of local sub-government has rown up in rural United States. It is built around the so-called Soil C o n s e rvation District. A soil conservation district may cross township, county and even state lines. Its limits are the natural boundaries of a drain- Peter Edson age area. This rea may be as small as ft creek branch valley. It may take i the land area drained by one ibutary. The tributary districts ven form watershed associations i cover an entire river system, These districts and associations re becoming better organized nil te time. California has had flood onlrol district organizsitiuns for may years. State law thcfe has .vcn these districts authority to vy taxes for improvements in leir own areas. Several years ago Nebraska assed a law authorizing local wa- r.shecl groups to orsamxe. Kansas •Hewed suit last yenr. R. W. Rogers, ch\ef of the ree- rds section of U.S. Soil Conserva- on Service, in the Department of srlcuUure, reports that at the end 1952 nearly 2500 soil conserva- on districts hnd been formed in United States ami Us tcrri- ries. These districts con'.iiin BO per mt of all the agricultural land nd 85 pfif cent of all the farms id ranches. Eleven stales, the rgin Lslnnds mid Pue Mi :i Rico are impletely covered witn locally anaged districts. It will be ncc- isary to organize only 140 more districts to cover the entire U.S. Over 1,250,000 farms ai'e now cooperating. Already they have tbeir own trade association. It is called the National Association of Soil Conservation Districts. W S. David, Jr., of League City, Tex . has been national president for \ e last two years. What is in the mauuiy here is a powerful new farm organization —a powerful new farm lobby and pressure group, some people be- jlleve—with n common interest, a common problem and a common goal. The common interest is water and land. The common goal is to get the maximum aid from every sourcc for proper utilization of water on land and the prevention of destruction of the land by too much water in flood time. Already there are evidences that this new element in the old water lobby is beginning 10 throw its weight around, R. A McConnell, Jr., of Lincoln, Neb , h^-5 headed delegations of citizens from his area, which have come to Washington twice In the six months demanding more attention to its problems. When- Congress was threatening to cut off uppropriations for con- tlnuinf* work on 11 Department of Agriculture watershed development projects, delegations from these areas came to Washington and turned on the heat. They were able to save half of their requested $15 million appropriation in the House. The Senate has yet to net. ....-That the soil conservation district story has an effective appeal in Congress is further shown by the fact Hint, the House has already appropriated money for starts on 48 new fflderal-nid projects for watershed protection. AH these developments present the Eisenhower administration with a couple of dandy new problems. One of the principles of this business administration was that federal handouts for local public- works programs would be reduced. The government would , refrain from doing things that local citizens could do for themselves. The Soil Conservation District movement Is a local movement, all right. The districts in many cases levy taxes against themselves, float local bond issued, get allocations from highway funds and even state-government help for many of their projects. The districts are voluntary organizations. There Is no federal compulsion to belong. But when the bills get bigger than the soil conservation districts feel they can pay themselves, they aren't going to be above asking for help from Uncle Sam. What happens to the principle of stopping federnl aid for local developments, in such cases, re- mams to be seen. The second problem facing the federal government is whether It is going to build up a third bureaucracy in the Department of Agriculture to deal with land and I water problems. Already the government has Army Corps of Engineers and Bureau of Reclamation with divided responsibility over big river projects. Almost every study of government reorganization has recommended that their work should be unified. A Presidential Water Resources Commission headed by Morris L. I Cooke last year recommended that n single agency coordinate all water-use policy and river-basin de| velopment. Instead of that, how- jever, a fair start has been made I here to split the baby in three.

Space Operas Coming: It's gonna be tough on movie horses, wranglers and stunt men if author Ray Bradbury's prediction comes irue that scie-ce-fic- tion epics will replace hayburners. Ray, the dean of writers about critters on other planets, and who wrote the screenplay of "It Came From Outer Space." is putting hi* money on space operas over horse operas. "There's more originality and more excitement in science iic- tion," he argues. "When they say 'they went thataway' in westerns, they can point only right and left. When they say it in science fiction, they can point anywhere. Much more directional latitude, if you know what I mean." Inside on the sudden parting of 0-1 and Anita Eckberg, a former Miss Sweden, Is that the beauty was paid off months ahead of the .ermlnation of her contract.

JORDAN, M.D Written for NEA Service Those who suffer from ragweed ay fever, with or without asthma, and who take vacations during late August and curly Steplember with the idea of getting away from the source of their trouble, should start their planning now. Several places on the North American continent have no ragweed, or .so little that the trouble Is greatly lessened. There is practically no ragweed in the Pacific northwest and northern California, and very little in southern California, Arizona and New Mexico. The Rocky Mountains themselves (have little ragweed, though vair- I weed grows well in the plains Just east of the mountains. There is practically no ragweed In southern nnrt eastern Florida and there te a strip of territory in western and northern Maine away from the seacoast which Is claimed to have little rasweed. Northern Minnesota and uflper Michigan have less ragweed farther south. Many victims of hay fever get a great deal of relief in those areas, though when a strong wind is blowing from the south they often have trouble. Several national parks are good hay fever spots. Among thorn are Crater Lake. Bryce Canyon, Glacier, Grnnd Canyon, Grand Tclon. Kings Canyon, Mount Mckinley, Mount Rainier, Olympic, Grand Lake, Sequoia. Yellowstone. Yosemite, Zlon and Sun Valley. According to pollen .studies, cities with no ragweed in the nir, or small amounts, include Sacramento. Miami, Reno, Portland, Oni.. Seattle, Spokane.

Belief Is Variable j Most of these places have (heir • enthusiasts but others who have j tried them have not always found relief. With the exception of the areas which are known to be free of ragweed pollen or have small | amounts in the air. the amount of I relief which hay fever sufferers ; get from resorts is variable. Some people get almost completely relieved and some seem to have Just about as much trouble, probably because they are more sensitive to email quantities of pollen. hand was on the trashy side South cannot be blamed for jumping to game after North had indicated strength with his raise.
