Korea War, Strangest in U.S. History, Finishes Third Year The Korean war, one of the strangest in American annals, lias rounded out its third full year. The third anniversary ought to have been the last, and despite all our difficulties we must still hope this can be so. This conflict, which began officially as a "police action," has cost the United States some 135,000 casualties and about $16 billion. By all odds it has been the most frustrating war in our history, for it ha sbeen largely stalemated through two thirds of its course. In the first phase, fanatical North Koreans, trained and outfitted by Chinese and Russian Communists, pierced deep into South Korea, forcing hastily dispatched American and other UN troops back into the compact Pnsan bridgehead. In the second, allied forces made dramatic landings at Inchon, retook Seoul, surrounded and crushed North Korean armies and drove their remnants north across the 38th parallel and toward the distant Yalu River border with Manchuria and Russia. Then came the shock of the Chinese intervention, and the allied pullback. Once more the Reds captured Seoul and lunged on south. But again UN armies stiffened and reversed the course of battle. There followed the "limited offensive" that brought allied units slowly north across the parallel to the North Korean hills that are the present line of combat. On that bloody fringe the war has stayed ever since — for two whole years. In late June, 1951, the Reds made their first truce overtures. From that time until October, 1952, the UN and Communist negotiators made slow progress toward an agreement, through delay, interruption, bitter controversy, shooting and bombing incidents. The talks ended then because no headway could be made on the tough issue of prisoner exchange. Only this spring, when discussions were resumed at Red request, did that problem finally vanish before the joint UN-Red determination to get a truce. Now, with the end of this maddening frustration in sight, with our limited original war aims substantially achieved, we are confronted with the tragic irony of President Syngman Rhee's reckless sabotage of the truce agreement in an effort to blackmail us into continuing the war indefinitely. What can he done about Rhee is a •eparate story. But his brazen attempt to dictate th§ military policy of th« whole free world is a i«d way to c*l»- brate th« war's anniversary. It ii a »»d way to memorialize the Americans' British, French, Turks, Greeks and South Koreans who died so that at least »om« ,. part of its people might be kept fre« of the tyrant's heel. Views of Others Beware The South! The more one pores over the plans of tht South to secure northern Industries the more on« Is likely to become fascinated at the use of the word "rent." It occuri frequently In the moat ambitious plans formulated by the South. Perhaps It has misled northern industrialists. Perhaps It h>« given them some funny notions. When the South builds « plant for t northern industry it signs with that Industry t "rental agreement." Havinf paid all the expenses of the new plant, one who reads that agreement without being aware of all the transactions that led up to It might conclude that the South had become a very generous landlord, renting Its property at a fair figure per month, paying all local taxes and then In a magnificent gesture deeding the property over to Its tenant lor one dollar tt the end of the 20-year rental period. That the terms themselves are somewhat generous cannot be denied but the whole arrangement Is not as generous M It appear!. For the amount paid is not rent. It Is partial payment on a land contract. And the distinction looms big If and when the new industry in the South ever comes to the conviction that It can deduct that "rent" as a cost of business, because rent ordinarily is deductible, instead of classifying It as a capital asset because In fact It is but a manner of buying real estate and buildings, We do not know whether the South pushes thli clever and pleasant Idea or not. It should be smart enough not to put It in writing. But a subtle word dropped here and there, now and then, may beget opinions that may, in turn, beget a lot. of trouble. Northern Industries should at least keep their eyes open. No longer do we have Mr. 8nyder M Secretary of the Treasury. No longer Is Mr. Oll- phant chief counsel lor the Bureau of Internal Revenue. No longer is Race Track McGrath head of the Department of Justice, whereas men llkt • Mr. Williams of Delaware ar« itlll In the Senate. If anyone gets the strange Idea that calling a monthly check "rent" when it Is not any such thing, he Is going to get by with It In the future America, he has taken onto himself the very mistaken notion that ,V(« are going to return to tht Corrupt Years where childish plans and explanations were employed by political Influence to rip the ntestincs out of the public treasury and turn the load over to workers and farmen and the others who were not sidestepping their shari of the awful burden of a government run wild. Oreen Bay Press-Gazette. Reports from Workers Paradise Peter Sdson't Washington Column — Commuter Kemper Has Yacht; Japans Prince Invited to U.S. Scratchy P.O. Pens you know those scratchy pens on the post office tables. You start writing with one, say fill- Ing out a money order form, and the point cakhe< in the paper and then It flips loose to «hower Ink over the sheet or perhaps let loose a blob that has to be blotted. The result it messy. Well, the pen gets scratchy because the government uses a low srade of ink that corrodes the point In not time. This is the Information given Congress by Craig R. shcaffer assistant secretary of commerce, who U a maker of fountain pens. This ink would ruin a fountain pen In no time. Why doesn't the government set out better ink on those tables for the public? We dunno why, but suspect that if it did, the citizens would stream in to buy a stamp and fill their pens, »nd occasionally one would go home and white a sting- Ing letter to the editor or to a congressman deploring the government's extravagance and waste of money. —New Orleans States. WASHINGTON —(NEA)— James S. Kemper of Chicago, , recently nominated by President Eisenhower as the new U. S. ambassador to Brazil, is one of the few people In the world who have coni- mutecT to and from work in private steam yacht. Mr. Kemper is a big mutual Insurance company executive and a sub- Peter Kdson fitantial contributor to Republican campaign funds in Illinois. For a number of years. Mr. Kemper customarily traveled in summer from his Winnetka home on the north shore of Lake Michigan in a magnificent white steamship trimmed with bright brass. People on the public beaches of an evening used to watch the graceful Kemper yacht cruslng along. It would anchor 500 yards out. Then a motor launch would be swung overside and come up to the lowered boarding ladder. Two Binartly uniformed seamen stood ramrod stiff at the launch wheel and engine. Owner Kemper would hop into Ills seat. The launch would accelerate with a roar as It curved toward the dock, with its bow In the air and sky showing under the prow. After depositing Mr. Kemper on the shore, the launch would put-put slowly and unsensatlonally back to the yacht with the crewmen seated. Practice In English Though it hasn't been officially announced as yet, the visit to Washington this fall of Japanese living in Philadelphia. For two Hickenlooper then cut him down to size with this comment:. "Mr. President, I would say it would distress me, indeed, If this years, in Tokyo, she gave English lessons to the young prince. In a way, this visit will provide an opportunity for the next emperor of j little colloquy should delay adjournment, or postpone it beyond the 31st of July." Taking this cue, Senators Smith, Mundt and Fulbright continued the discussion for another 15 minutes. Man Behind Impeachment Charge While Rep. Chauncey W. Reed of Illinois, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, has appointed a committee of lawyers to consider the impeachment charge against Associate Justice William O. Douglas of the Supreme Court, for his last-minute stay of execution for the Rosenberg atomic spies, the congressman who introduced the impeachment resolution isn't a lawyer at all.

If we are going to do this wi have to cut down somewhere. Agriculture has to make its contribution. — Secretary of Agriculture Ezra T. Benson. * » * It would be a fatal mistake if responsible statesmen were to fall prey to the skillfully laid out. maneuvers of the Soviet policy in Asia. — Edward KarciclJ, Vice President of Yugoslavia. * * 9 I'm positive I'm right. I intend to prove that a soldier is not a second-class citizen. — Lt.-Col. John Vorhees, who was court-martialed for releasing his uucensored book. * * * The Republicans are treating me so nicely thai I think I'm beginning to like WashliiRlon — maybe too much. — Adlai Stevenson, on being invited to lunch at WWt« Houw. I Crown Prince Akihtto is being mnde In response to a special invitation from President Eisenhower. The Japanese emperor's son and heir is scheduled to arrive in Washington Sept. 8, He will spend two nights at Blair House and will be entertained officially by President Eisenhower and Secretary of State John Foster Dulles. Biggest social event of the visit, however, will be an official white- tie reception at the Japnnese embassy. One guest already invited to this affair is Mrs. Elizabeth Pray Vining, an American woman now Japan to show his teacher how well he learned his lessons. Now 19, he is described as a first? rate horseman and tennis player, good looking and affable. Go Sporty for Comfort In spite of some protests from clothing companies over the new Department of Commerce order which permits male emplcyes to wear "neat short-sleeved shirts Without ties while at work" on hot iummer days, other Washington agencies are following suit. The Department of Labor hi modified its regulations to permit such dress—but only in offices which don't have air conditioning. Te Navy Is issuing the same kind of an order for its non-air conditioned offices outside the Pentagon. According to old-time personnel officers around town, there never las heen a regulation saying government employes couldn't wea sport shirts to work in the summer if they wanted to. It has just become tradition for male government workers to wear a regular shirt and tie all summer. It has been some of the bolder employes who have launched various attempts over the years to break away from formality and go comfortable during Washington's dog days. One personnel expert hazards the guess that all tt would take to get official Washington to start wearing sport shorts immediately would be for the President to show up for work some day in that costume.

They know me as he guy who tees off early In the morning and plays all day. I don 1 go out much otherwise, so nobody sees my curls. I'm the most antisocial jerk in the world."

After South's opening bid of one o-trump, North has a bidding iroblem.

North is not even emotely interested in a game at a m o n d s, although actually game at diamonds would be afer than at no-trump as the ards lie. North bids two clubs (the Btay- an Convention), asking his part- er to show a biddable major suit he has one. North does not show real club suit by this bid. South follows through by bidding a farmer and school- ma, Ga., teacher. He spent three-and-ahalf years in Georgia extension colleges and at the Georgia Teachers' college, then became principal of two junior high schools. During the war he enlisted as a private in the Air Force and rose to captain. Though only 38 years old, this Is his fourth term In Congress. But now that the Supreme Court has reversed the Douglas stay, the impeachment resolution isn't given much chance. Vitaminic Endurance Oklahoma Sen. Bob Kerr's habit of taking vitamin C to keep his campaign hand in shape proved worthwhile the other day. He.was 'lying from Miami, Okla., to Okla- loma City in a flivver plane for a scheduled speech before the Ex- Tisoners of War convention. The }lan ran Into bad weather and had turn back.

He has been asked to show a biddable major suit, and he must do so. (If South did not have a biddable major suit, he would bid .two diamonds or possibly two no-trump). North needs no further information. As long as South has a biddable spade suit, the best game contract will surely be In spades. North Jumps to game because he has 11 points (B points in high cards and 3 points for the two doubletons), and knows that South has at least 16 points for the no- trump opening bid. South makes the game at spades with great ease. He wins the second club trick with the king, draws three rounds of trumps, and then develops the diamonds. The opponents get the ace of clubs and the' king of diamonds, but nothing else. If South played the hand at three no-trump, he would be defeated. The clubs would be opened and established. West would gain the lead with the king of diamonds in time to run his clubs, and the defenders would thus take four clubs and a diamond.

PUBLIC FORGIVES, FORGETS Just in case any Hollywood producers are worried about public reaction to Joan Bennett on tha screen, Zachary Scott wants It known that Joan's a regular dar. ling—even to the PTA groups all over the country. Zach ought to know. He toured with Joan for 11 months In "Bell, Book and an- dle" and is saying "There was no antagonism at all except a little right here In Hollywood kvhen we opened R Los Angeles engagement of the play." Back in Hollywood for "Rage of :he Jungle," Zachary says that the >ig reason he left the sound stages for the footlights was the series of spoiled playboy and heavy roles handed him.

M.D Written for NEA Service A fairly common and most Iron-i er genital tract of women and Is blesome condition involving the also found in the bladder and other of sole of the foot Is the subject today> first inquiry. Q—What can you say about plantar warts. Are they contagious? Mrs. A. A, A—The exact cause of phmtar warts is poorly understood. They are not contagious, apparently, even though, they may be caused by a virus., Treatment usually is necessary, but is difficult since warts, probably because of the constant pressure on them, are harrier to cure than warts in almost any oth- • location. On the whole, probably the most effective treatment is to use irradiation, either with X-rays or radium, though such treatment must be given with the greatest care. Surgery has sometimes been used with success. Q—Please discuss so-called Trl- chomonas Infections and what can be done for them. Reader. A—The cause of Trirhomonas Infections Is a liny animal parasite whlcb alllicU particularly ths low- genital parts of men. It thrives in acid secretions, and the various treatments which are used to try to kill the parasite also often include, attempts to change the acid section to one in which the parusitr grows less well. The exact technical aspects of the treatment must be left lo the physician in charge, but, regardless of what is used, it requires the complete cooperation of the patient for a long period of time. Q—My 28-month-old girl pulls her hair out. The hair grows back in but she Roes all over the head again and starts doing It again. Is there a cure or something I can do? Mrs. W. T. p. A—This sounds like a habit which the child will, In all probability, outgrow. It is a peculiar nervous reaction ol some kind and probably about all you can do Is keep the child as calm as possible and not pay loo much atlenllon (o this activity. If she can be Interested In other things, she may give up her hair-pulling. Q—If a person dies with cancer and it is unknown at the time, would it be contracted by another sleeping on the same mattress? Reader. A—No. Q—Would drinking one quart of milk daily cause constipation in an adult? I. B. C. A—Milk contains little bulk, but would not of itself cause constipation. Q—Is it possible for a person to survive after an operation for brnin tumor? Mrs.E. S. • A—Yes, indeed. This happens with increasing frequency, Uianks to the excellent methods of surgery on the brain devised by our neuro-surgeons. Ansv A.
