Newspaper Publishers Ass'n FRIDAY, DECEMBER 30, 19-49 I Industry And Colleges At a time when so many privately endowed colleges and universities are in dire need of money because prices are high and long-standing investments ran be refunded only at lower interest rates, Wallace A. Bennett, president of the National Association of Manufacturers, insists industry must go to the aid of higher education. This titular spokesman for industry made a strong point in asking his hearers not to consider freedom of enterprise and academic freedom as separate entities. They are. as he assert- manifestations of the same thing."' He said: "Important as the .seed of capital invested in industry has been, there has been another field in which the seed of capital has been planted, and must be planted, if we are to match our expanding physical plant with human leadership that develops fast enough to control and operate it. This seed of capita! is represented by- money invested in our educational system." It is true that .in Mr. Bennett's words, "the ascending spiral of greatness in America" has been due to the production of more wealth from generation to generation. But the significance of the paragraph cited above is not, of course, limited to technological •.raining. The "human leadership" includes doctors, lawyers, teachers, ministers in the whole field of letters to the spirit of man to :':! him better to enjoy the benefits cf civilization. What Was Their Fate? I: was last July that the first :m::p of 2.000 Japanese prisoners of '.vcr. held in Russia for four years, landed in Japan singing communist songs and swearing allegiance to the communist party. Another such group landed in August. Before long s. rash of anti-MacArthur demonstrations turned : into riots requiring police attention. It was clear to American observers that the only Jap prison. t-rs being returned by Russia were, those who had been fully indoctrinated and cleared as communist revolutionaries. In May. Moscow said there were only 95.000 Japanese POWs in Russia and that all of them would be returned by November. The four-power Allied Council estimated 400.000 were captured or interned. Only a few thousand have been sent home. Is this because indoctrination has not been going, very well? Or is it because most of the prisoners have died under "killing labor?" William Sebald, U. S. representative on the council^ thinks that is what has happenad. When Sebold made his "charges a few days ago, the Soviet member of the council did not wait to hear them all. He walked out after making a typical Russian blast reminiscent of March, 1948, when '.he Russians walked out of the Allied Control Council of Berlin. "American imperialists and Japanese fascists are building up hatred against Russia in a propaganda campaign," he said. Why hasn't the lie. been blown off this frightful business before now in formal council meeting? The Japanese people are sending bundles of petitions to MacArthur's government. What can be done is not clear, but American prestige in Japan is ] threatened unless the United j States takes a vigorous stand in i the matter. I The painful irony j s that Rus- \ sia under the Yalta agreement , was only in the Japanese war for j a few final days — and unnecessarily at that. Never, perhaps, did Russia round up so much manpower so easily and cheaply. lions of stars and suns that there is a general glow in the heavens. Our solar system, which we think of as quite vast, is but a minute speck in the Milky Way. Yet the Milky Way is only one stellar system. There are thousands of others. The infinity of space nas always been beyond man's grasp. Yet there is now as hitherto, a belief that somehow space is rounded .off, has corners or limits. Increasing finite visibility as yet gives no evidence of it. That man is so infinitesimal in the universe is a sobering thought. His gadgets, his boasted achievements, his petty quarrels arc nothing in time and space. But it is perhaps just as well not to dwell too much on that. An inferiority complex is not exactly a desirable thing. It is difficult to guarantee ar.v freedom. For example, a man's freedom of .speech, guaranteed by the Constitution, cun be revoked by his wife. Do You Remember?

(International)' Let Children Scream By FRANK TRIPP This is a Christmas present for your child. Please deliver it for me. A boy set up a howl such a.^ only young boys can produce, and ran up the steps to the nearest doorway. Ho put his finger on the doorbell, held it there and con'.in- ued screaming at the top of his voice. He had been taught to do this if approached by a stranger on the street. It happened that no one was at home in the house to which he ran but the youngster's screan.-- caused heads to pop out of ma-y doors and windows in the block. The neighbors saw a man huriy- ing way in an automobile. The boy did his part and was saved but the adults failed in theirs. The purpose of the alarm was not known to the people who could have made detection of a pervert almost certain. Before thf.v gathered their wits the car had sped awap. its license number unnoticed. Witnesses could only ag-ee that the car was a black sedan and that the man wore a dark crat. . Let's encourage him to use 'om in j his own defense and leach bin-. | how.

Whittemore, The Hillside Congregational church observed its 50th anniversary, and received $1,700 toward its building fund. The U. S.

Among other developments this year was the removal of the flag pole from atop the Town Hall building, and installation of a new I one extending over the Church ' street sidewalk "rom the second story of the buiU'.mg.

MODERN ETIQUETTE Q. If a young girl has invited a young man to visit her home, and he has not done so within a reasonable length of time, would it be all right for her to extend a second Invitation? A. It would be better if she did not, as this would give the impression that she is "pursuing" him. Q. When a professional entertainer attends some social function, is it all right to ask him to perform? A, Not unless it has been previously arranged. Otherwise, it is very presumptuous to impose upon him in this fashion. Q. Is it necessary to have a train on a white satin wedding dress? A. The dress may be made with or without a train, depending upon the formality of the wedding.
