Thus ho avoided any direct censure of the Chinese communists, and he treated their future recognition as a matter for the various nations to decide for themselves. As for the Nationalists' complaint against Russia, Dr. Jessup referred to the International Court of Justice as being the proper place to decide a violation of the Sine-Soviet Treaty. On the point of "foreign domination" by the Soviets, he said: "It will be for the people of China to make a final judgment as to the correctness of this interpretation of the communist movement in China over the last 30 years." On that score i the Chinese communists have no intention, now or ever, of allowing "the people of China" to make any such "final judgment" or any such "free" choice of government unfavorable to themselves. SUBSCRIPTION RATES Payable In Advance 1 Month ...»1JO 1 Tear . . Member: American Newspaper Pub. AM*n N. B. Dafly Newspaper Put. A«rfn fonn. Newspaper Publisher* An'n WEDNESDAY, DEC. 7, 1949 Senator Opens Books The country hasn't heard the last of congressional junkets, •which are as much a fixture on Capitol Hill as the Senate restaurant or Barkley. But Sen. Ralph Flanders' statement that the tour of government housing projects in Europe made by his senatorial committee was a good investment for the U. S. taxpayer provides a fitting finale to the 1949 congressional travel season. All told. 30 Senators and 120 members of the House have taken or are taking trips to various parts of the gl»be on official business this year. Whether "millions of dollars" will be saved in future housing legislation as a result of the trip to Europe by the committee of which Senator Flanders is a member is debatable. It would be nice to think it would. The most refreshing thing about Senator Flanders' statements is the precedent he set regarding the expense of the tour. It amounted to $1.800 a head, he said. As a rule congressional expense accounts are a closed book. Full publication of the cost of all future tours may be the effective curb to excessive junketing that some Congressmen have been seeking. The Tempering Agent After 18 months of refinement, I'. X. military experts will again .•.-si the efficiency of their super A-bombs at Eniwetok. It has been stated unofficially that the bomb i= r.oiv six times as powerful as tr.e original model, and that work i.-? progressing in the devising of :i bomb that will have a thous- z-r;l limes the explosive power of those that fell on Hiroshima and Nagasaki with such devastating effect. The only thing more powerful than such a bomb would be a workable idea to keep the leaders of the human race from using it in anger or in pursuit of their ambitions. When the human race starts using such bombs there will be no room left in the world for either bombs or ideas. If ideas triumph over bombs, humankind will remain comparatively free to seek a happy destiny, aided materially by the unlocked secrets of creation and powered by the tremendous forces of the universe. It boils down to mind and soul over matter. If man cannot use his brain to promote his welfare, at least as effectively as he uses it to create amazing and frightening gadgets, he is not as well off as the hog wallowing in the mire. After all, the mire does do something for the hog. Man will never approach the ideal of freedom from fear until he directs his conscious efforts toward goals he knows are good. The catch is there is always a Germany, a Japan or a Russia. China Policy Conflicts A resolution calling, in effect, for a new "Open Door" policy in China has been offered in the United Nations by the United States. It is couched in the loftiest phrases and principles, yet for all practical purposes it amounts to locking the door after the horse has been stolen. The American delegate, Dr. Philip C. Jessup, presented a program which, as a ^ase of wishful thinking, seems' to hark back almost wistfully to the Nine-Power Treaty .of 1922 guaranteeing the territorial integrity of China. He asks the United Nations to agree to the following: 1. To respect the political independence of China, and to be guided by the principles of the Charter in their relations with China; 2. To respect the right of the people of China now and in the future to choose freely their political institutions and to maintain a government independent of foreign control; 3. To respect existing treaties relating to China; 4. To refrain from seeking to acquire spheres of influence or to create foreign-controlled regimes within the territory of China, or to obtain special rights or privileges. How this resolution squares with the realities in China is a mystery. Practically all of China —and Dr. Jessup's "peopl|e of China" — have been overrun and dominated by Chinese communists who answer directly to Moscow. In the case of Angus Ward, the Soviet puppets displayed .an insolent disdain for the most fundamental relationships with the non-communist West. In explanation, Dr. Jessup maintained that the UN's problem was Do You Remember? One Year Ago Malcolm Wilson was elected president of the West Side Community Club. The Rev. L. A.

For 25 years he thought it was mine." Ex-tennistar Frank Shields was signed to a Sam Goldwyn movie contract. He idled in Movictown many weeks doing nothing but collecting his pay. He never even met Sam. To puass away the time Frank played tennis every day. Five months later, he was summoned to Goldwyn's sanctum. He raced there, expecting his first role. Sam looked up from his newspaper and dryly said: "Shields, practice acting, not tennis." Item: "Merwin K. Hart Loses Lawsuit Over 'Under Cover'." Have a few crocodile tears on me.

Just what is the meaning o "semi-formal" as applied to <th dress of both men and women? A. This would depend upon th community.
