S, 1MB Eebuke To Moscow By electing anti-Soviet Yugoslavia to the Security Council, a majority of the United Nations has administered a significant rebuke to Russian arrogance. Thirty-nine of 58 delegates voted for Yugoslavia. If they had wanted to avoid an issue—or perhaps an eventual showdown—with Russia, they could have voted-for the Soviet stooge, Czechoslovakia. Instead, they faced up to Russian pressure and threats, to the credit of their own fearlessness and independence. Russia has made a great point of a so-called "gentleman's agreement" as it concerned UN deference to the specific nominee of a regional group, such as Eastern Europe. Yugoslavia exposed that Soviet fraud by revealing that the Russians had excluded Yugoslavia from, the caucus of Eastern Slavic and communist states that had chosen Czechoslovakia. That's how "representative" was the regional nomination from Eastern Europe. What happens next is the question. Vishinsky received his rebuke with the expected declaration that the Soviet bloc -would not recognize Yugoslavia. There •was no immediate "painful effect" on UN such as the Soviet delegate had threatened. Nevertheless, United States support of Yugoslavia—Britain supported Czechoslovakia — removed all doubt that the feud .between Belgrade and Moscow.would become a major East-West issue before the UN. A showdown could be precipitated by Russia either when the Assembly takes up Yugoslavia's case against Rus» sia or when the Security Council holds its organization meeting in the new year. It's Russia's move. Revolutiod In Reverse Because it was passed by a two- thirds vote of Congress, members of which were elected by the people, over the veto of President Truman, the Taft-Hartley Labor Law represents th» -will of the people. Efforts to repeal or modify the act failed at tbe first session of the present Congress, although the complexion of tbe^body had changed back to Democratic. Leaders of his own party failed to go along with .President Truman in his determination to repeal tbe measure. Frustrated in that effort, he has taken the matter in his own hands, and has refused to invoke the law at a time •when strikes are increasing and the nation's industry and economy suffering. %Vhen tbe people rise and overthrow their government, that is revolution. What is it, then, when the government refuses to carry out the will of the people, as in the present case? Strikes are spreading at a time when the United States was well on the way to economic recovery. Merits of the Taft-Hartley Law are not at issue. The point is. a measure has been designed to solve the problems now confronting the nation. It is the only remedy at hand, and the powers that be refuse to apply it. This is, in fact,' revolution in reverse. Oysters In The Can Sometimes the Supreme Court of the United States is asked to adjudicate the strangest questions. Think of carrying all the way up to that august tribunal the question of how many oysters should be put in a can of a certain size! In sections of the country remote from the coasts many vacuum processed oysters are consumed. It has become quite an industry. Involvement of the' Supreme Court in the canning question had its genesis in the Food and Drug Administration's fixing new standards of fill for oyster containers. It set the content of the small car., known to the trade as No. 1. at 6 1-2 ounces, the equivalent of a doze nEastern Coast medium- sized oyjiters or from eight to 10 "extra select," depending upon the amount of liquid used. Western packers, who had been using a five-ounce can as against a 7 1-2 ounce can by Southern packers, protested the regulation. It was arbitrary, capricious and an abuse of discretion, said the Western packers. When "the lower court decided against them. they started certiorari. That ia how the case came finally to appear on the Supreme Court docket. But the other day, after the nine justices had pondered the issue, certiorari was denied, which means that the packers must henceforth conform to the regulation. Greta Won't Like It- To many of acquired maturity, the young Greta Garbo was the most glamorous 'creature the screen ever produced. She was a woman of beauty and mystery and grace. A fine actress, too. Her romantic roles in "Christina" are unforgettable. Her wistful loveliness in "Camille" and "As You Desire Me" is as memorable as her subtle comedy in "Ninotchka." But with all her talent and charm, the off-screen Garbp has always been a little tiresome. Her persistent demand for privacy has become tedious. If it is sincere, and not an oblique bid for publicity, she ignores the fact that if movie stars want privacy, their best way to get it is to retire to private life. Although Miss Garbo's famed yearning to be "alone" has lost its novelty with the passing of many years, she still dodges reporters -and photographers with elaborate provocativcness, and they pursue her with the zest of 20 years ago, Perhaps they ought to respect her wishes and pay no attention when she returns from Europe, as she has just done, or when she flits about the United States in her nondisguising disguises. Everybody should understand that no system of government will work unless the people do. Many of us would like to go back to those calm times when we were dreaming of Jeannie with the light brown hair. George Bernard Shaw seems to be disappointed by^the mess created by his socialist friends. He suggests the whole human race ought to disappear. There is nutrition in alfalfa soup, it is said, but alfalfa must be high priced, judging from the prices of milk and beefsteak. A successful American formerly was one who succeeded with his own money. Now the most successful are the politicians who do things with other people's money. Do You Remember? One Year Ago Rep.

OPEN SEASON MOSCOW SATflUTlS WALTER WINCHELL In New York REBEL Let others be resigned to team and trouble; Let them acquire noble brows and patient eyes. I had an uncle who could have been brother To Lucifer himself, once stripped of lies. He taught me all I know or need to know Of living: 'how to pick up losing: dice. Double the bet, let easy money go, Laugh at the world, and never take advice. Let others go the narrow path and straight, Well knowing what await* them at the end. I'll be there, too, perhaps a little late, Not having destiny to call a friend. Let others reap rewards and wear a crown— I'd rather wear my halo upside- down. —Eleanor Alletta Chaflee.
