Member: : ' American Newspaper Pub. AM*n N. K. Dally Newspaper Put. Awfn Conn. Newspaper Publl«h«r» Au'n FRIDAY, 1JKCEMBEB », 1M9 On Occupying Formosa Senator Smith of Now Jersey has recommended that United States troops take control of the Island of Formosa off the China coast to protect it from seizure by the Chinese communists and to nail .down the southern flank of American defenses based upon Japan and Okinawa. He was not sure whether this should bo by outright military occupation, by working through the ECA, or perhaps by some sort of deal with native Formosan leaders with perhaps the acquiescence of Chinese Nationalists. Though the Senator wants vigorous action on Formosa, he nevertheless concurs fully in Secretary of State Acheson's policy of dealing with the Chinese communists through the United Nations. He said that at the height of the Angus Ward incident he was inclined toward Imposing an American naval blockade, but has since changed his mind. He thinks that developments In the next few months will show whether the communists should be confronted finally with a blockade or offered recognition. His in- decisivencss and fuzzy thinking is characteristic of that of many others In Washington. To occupy Formosa with troops raises serious questions of direct involvement in the Chinese civil war. Senator Snilth, newly returned from a junket of the Far East, says his proposal is supported by General MacArthur and other military leaders In the Pacific area. The Senator also suggests that General MacArthur be placed in charge of a "united" American politico-military policy for the entire Far East. A.. a minority member of the Sennit: Foreign Relations Committee. Senator Smith's views, whatever their merit, point up the urgent need for the United States to declare its Intentions, one way or another, in that troubled area. stampH made it that much .heavier,' the clerk said.

Finally he Bttld the ground looked like the whirling face of a grinding wheel below him. That's a good simile, and it makes good writing. It's also trail blazing In a void, trying to pick out a Twentieth Century simile to describe something that others will coin slmllOH for In .the future. But May's slmllo was grout because oven an Eighteenth Century mortal could hove grasped his meaning. ,Tho earthbcnmii layman )owcs hjlm a |^ote of thanks for drawing a graphic picture of what only a few have experienced. A Poor Solution Mayors of the big American' cities are doing a great d«al of grousing about their "Innd'i- qunte" share of the total national tax revenues. Heads of largo metropolitan aroas held a meeting In Clcvelnnd a few dayn ago and lamented that cities have many and increasing "responsibilities" but cannot find the money to discharge them prop'-r- ly. When the federal government •tnkes J40.000.000 annually, thN cramps the style of politicians in minor units of government. Did the mayors suggest that the federal government surrender some of its revenues—unnecessary If the fat is shaved oft the spending: program—and divert these tax bases to Inn cities? Nothing of the sort. They passed a resolution demanding that the federal government pajr the cities a bljfK.-r share of the revenues it IH collecting. They mentioned speci'- ically that there should be more federal grants for city streets. The mayors, of course, ma-it know that most of the federal income already comes from the cities, that It is wasteful to drai? 1t to Washington, route It prodigally through the hands of the bureaucrats and then pass a portion of what is left back to till cities. They must know that In :hU process the cities are hat-tn-hand beggars while the national government grows bigger and mnn authoritarian. Cities now hav« little authority left, being compelled to wait on decisions both of their state legislatures un<) Washington. The only possible consequence of the mayors' resolution will be to make government bigger mill put the power in the hands o! Washington politicians to maku or blight any city in the land. Double Jeopardy There la a widespread be'.lof that government employes, as x class, show less imagination and flexibility than the employes of private enterprise. This may bo a canard. However, in Savannah, On., the other day. a porter handed In at the post office window a letter too fat to go through the slot. The post office clerk weighed It, and told him it needed three more three-cent stamps. The porter went away, put three more stamps on tho letter, and came back. The clerk duly weighed the letter a second time. "Too heavy." he said. ''Needs another three-cent stamp." "How come?" asked the porter. ''Guess those [extra thren Who Did It? Whoever it was that cleared the way for wartime shipments of uranium and atom bomb Information (o Russia, It mint have been a government official of higher standing than Mo.) Gen. Leslie R. Groves. That Is the one certain and undisputed fact that has come out of the hearings held by tho House Committee on Un-American Activities. General Groves has made it plain that he did not approve the Idea and hints broadly thiit he was overruled. Thanks to Fulton "jcwis, Jr.. the radio Commentator, whole Jsordld affair has been brought out into the open and it IK hoped the House commlttee'i investigation will result in filling In the blank spaces. Certnln- ly this is a. matter about which the American public should no longer bo kept In the dark.

My Mom s Deep Freeze By FRANK TRIPP Tho deep freeze bids fair to return a lot of pcoip.lf> to a faint semblance of tho days of their forebears. There will bo more putting things in store for Winter. Our fathers lived more like M)iiliT<.'ls than like we do. They went into Winter projpnred for it. We go in with a straw bnt and a lawn mower, anyway so It would seem to a household of 50 ycnrs ago. My folks lived in the city, with lots of stores around us; nevertheless my father faced every Winter with sufficient supplies undur hifl roof to cany through till Spring. It was the custom of the thrifty of those days, when women did tholr own baking anil looked upon nil who ate from, tin cans as gypsies. All who could afford it wont into Winter with little missing, save milk and cream. In the cellar that I had to clean every Fall -wore sturdy swing shelves of mother's canned fruits and vegetables. There would bo scores of earns of tomatoes, corn, beans, berries, peaches, pcara, plums and mincemeat—the kind that take tho blue ribbon at tho county fair. In tho attic was a supply of flour granulated and ibrown sugar, cakes of maple sugar and cards of honey. And a bag: of dried corn; a bigger one of beans, for my Boston dud had his beans every Saturday. IN THK COLD CTXtAR, us frosts camp, hung a quarter of beef, and a half a pig; sometimes a ulab of venison, always one of bacon. Thr 'pig's head had already been pressed Jnto a pan of — boy what hcadcheece; the hocks and knuckles were "put down" und pop had made tno a whistle out of tho pig's tail. Some more of the pig hnd become sausage, Heasoriod to mom's swell tonic and ,-ho had started her (Pitcher of buck-wheat pancake bat- tor out on tho buck porch. Over In the corner was a* tub or "»lt .pork In brino, a crock of cWs In walm-glusH. jars ad crocka of picklos and a cldor-vlnegar keg freshened every Fall, I n tho freshening process pop would hnltctt a Jug or two of hard cider which I was not supposed to touch--und did only onco, to my sorrow. Tho 'o was n tub or country butter, a smaller one of lurd, bushflw of inotatoeo and apples, a peck of hickory nuta and butternutn. From thn joist hung popcorn on tho cob. You hut I remember tlial harrcl of snuci-lcrsiut for which I hacko'd ii!|> 100 heads of cabbage and lugged tho rocks to weigh it down. Burled In tho back yard wore more heads of ciibibagc nnd turnips, to go -with u. firkin of corned beef which mollod in my mouth years before I heard of Jlggo or Dlnty Moore. IN SPITK OF all our Kiippllo* wi> hod r.n automobile, radio or movien, for there were none then. Our joys wore simple but many and we were awful happy, mom and pap* and me. All of thoao -laborious preparations preceded the era of packaged food and mechanical refrigeration. Everything wait sold 'in bulk. We had never soon a can of coffee, n. ten hair, « loaf of sugar, a can of .soup or a package of crackers, Only the Army used canned moat nnd it had a bad refutation; "embalmed beef" 'twas called. Tho largest cities had a few Hats and apartments. Elsewhere al- most everybody lived in detached houses, wlt.h a good collar a main requisite. That wa» the old-timers' d«cp freeze. MAYBK (50 YEARS FROM NOW another writing hack will pon a iitoiy of today',* doop fr/.fize, obsolete by then. It will sound as strange as those things may sound to you. By then perhaps a Winter's store of food may be packed In an overnight bag. Com- ipreased tablets take little room There'll be a bottlo of corned hoof and cabbage pellets, ona of Irlnh stew, one of spaghetti and meal, balls. Soak a capsule- tho Pliistlf: container bneomcs n. bun and the content a giant, sklnloaa hot dog. It',i coming, they nay: but I'll bet nil the tea In China that they'll never compress Into a pin, a vparc- rib and sauerkraut dinner like niv mother used to make. MODERN ETIQUETTE Q. When a woman, traveling alone, meets a man acquaintance on a train and h« Invites her to the dining car, what does Bho do about the bill? A. She may assume that he wishes -to he host, and that ho would be offended If she refused to allow him to pay for the meal. However, women who travel alorio must be careful about accepting favors from men, It Is bettor to nttk the waiter to bring separate bills. If a woman accepts an Invitation from a man it should bo for once only. Q. If a bride's father is not living, should tho mother give her away? A. This IK seldom done, tho rite usually being performed by n man. Tho bride may choose her brother, an uncle, cousin, or even a very close male friend of her family. Q. Whn should a wowan rise to receive an introduction to a man? A. When she is a hostess, and In this instance, she not only rises, but extends her hand In greeting.
