Maybe because hubby eats less. tion of Germany into the Western family raises the barrier to Soviet conquest higher than it was. Whatever noises emanate from the Kremlin in the wake of this historic development, the chances are strong that the outlook for peace hos been improved rather than diminished. That .and not Communist verbosities, is what counts. VIEWS OF OTHERS Segregation: Device And Challenge Big Smoke, Little Fire Russia's decision to annul its World War II pacts of friendship and alliance with France should occasion neither surprise nor alarm in the Western world. For all practical purposes the Soviet Union canceled these treaties almost at the war's end. From that time forward, the Kremlin has been operating as if the pacts did not exist. If it could have managed it, Russia would today be ruling France through the medium of the French through the medium of the French Communist Party. And a Cominunist- dominated Europe would not have found Britain in a very enviable position. The only reason the Soviet Union has not been able in the years since World War II to wipe out all that Britain and France stand for is that they, in company with the United States and others, have banded together to prevent it. The NATO pact was the keystone of this preventive effort. Coming on the heels of the Marshall Plan, which hud helped bring economic recovery to Wesl- ern Europe, NATO drove home to the Soviets the realization that these countries could no longer be taken without a major fight. The one missing element in NATO was the industrial and armed might of Germany. The Paris pacts. Hearing final approval of all the affected nations, remedy that deficiency by endorsing German rearmament and entry into NATO. The Russians now say these agreements are "directed against" them. The truth, which they well understand, is that they are "protective against" the Soviet Union. What annoys the Kremlin so thoroughly is that pulling Germany into the Western oribt is the last, the irretrievable step in blocking Russia's way to an easy conquest of Western Europe. No smoke-screen propaganda about the rebirth of German militarism can cloak the fact that for nearly ten years the menace to freedom has not been Germany but Russia. N'o one but the most gullible neutralists will be impressed by the argument the Kremlin now advances for breaking off "friendship" with Britain and France. The practice in the Kremlin has long been to observe some treaties as long aa it is convenient or compelling to do so, to break others almost before the ink is dry, but postpone public repudiation of them until some moment when the act of severing ties can be milked for propaganda advantage. The latter course has been followed in the case of the wartime friendship and alliance pacts. Nothing is rcafly changed by this net. Russia is not thereby more likely to undertake war with the West. Nobody but « madman fights unless he thinks he can win. The prospective incorpura- Avoiding the noisy emotionalism of Deep South neighbor states. North Carolina was working calmly and cooly today to prepare for whatever new decrees the Supreme Court will hand down on segregation In the public schools. A bill placing assignment and enrollment of pupils In the hands of local school boards was unanimously approved by the Senate yesterday. A public hearing was to be held today on a House bill that Is Identical. The measures offer a sensible approach to the problem. Obviously, racial conditions vary from county to county and community to community. No single formula will solve these countless Individual puzzles. By absolute necessity there must be variance In remedial methods and periods for working out adjustments to the stituation. This will be possible under measures now in the legislative mill. Action of the Senate Education Committee ycs- lerday In approving the elimination of continuing contracts for school teachers—as part of the steps to be taken to meet these segregation issue—accents a particularly serious matter, however. The provisions would permit employment of teachers under a contract for one school year only. Sen. Carl. T. Hicks of Greene, committee chairman, released a memorandum from the attorney general's olficc noting that It might be "Impractical to continue to employ" many of the 8,500 Negro touchers in the state If the Supreme Court makes it Impossible' to continue the operation of segregated schools. The situation is this: If the experience of other desegregated communities IK any guide! many Negro teachers will lose their jobs if racial bars come tumbling down In the public schools. If Negroes are to go on teaching, the North will have to give them Jobs. But openings for Negro teachers are scarce above the Ma.son-Dlxon line. North Carolina, for Instance, employes as many Negro teachers ns do the seven states of New York Pennsylvania, Illinois, Ohio, Michigan, California and Indiana combined. In North Carolina, at least one out of every three teachers Is a Negro. In the 31 nonscgregat- cd northern and western states, one out of every 13 tcnchcm Is a Negro. The Job market for Negro teachers Is already tight in the state. Because teaching Is one of the Inw well-paid occupations open to educated members ol the race, the supply of Negro school teachers is already many times bigger than the demand. The problem will get worse If Integration of the races in Tar Heel classrooms becomes a fact. But whether public school segregation actually ends or nol. North Carolina clearly must develop new employment fields for the Negro. The Negro can become an enormous asset to the stale. But unless economic opportunities are broadened, lie will become an enormous burden. —Charlotte (N. C.I News. Bread on The Waters In thrii' attitude toward the rest of humanity.

A Philippine librannn expressed the pride of his nation in the work when he said: "For a long time we Filipinos hnve bt en receiving help from others, mostly the United States. I think it's a good thing we're able to help others now." This isn't quite like the Biblical casting of bread upon the waters, but it comes close.

SO THEY SAY- Walking Papers Peter Cdson's Washington Column — Notes of Reporter Show What Admiral Carney Had in Mind WASHINGTON — (NEA) — The wraps are now all off. Adm. Robert B. Carney has himself dropped the cloalc of secrecy from his shoulders as Chief of Naval Operations. He has publicly admitted before a Senate man rcsonsible for all the stories the possibility of a Chinese j Communist attack on MnUsu by! April 15. But he has denied that j he ever made any such statement. | Twenty Washington correspondents, Including this writer, were present at a private dinner after Admiral Carney returned from his first-hand Inspection of the Formosa area. They all heard him make the prediction of fighting, not once but several times. They had respected his confidence and had not themselves identified Admiral Carney as the source of this information. But when he pulled the rug from under himself before the Senate committee, the rules were suspended. Tt Is therefore possi- bl and perfectly ethical to quote Just what the admiral said. This reporter made full notes on the meeting, a- did all the other (•porters present. The notes a" check. The material ippearinp- below iqaotation marks, is an ex cl transcript of what I took down at the meeting. These are some >f the notes from which I wrote the dispatch filed the day after the dinner, in which it was reported: "April 15 Is now seen at the approximate date for the showdown between war or peace In the Chi nese offshore Islands. "By this time the Chi! ese Communists will have completed their build-up against Matsu Island. A Communist attack against Quemoy Is not expected for another month or two." Admiral Carney began his after- dinner remarks by saying voluntarily. "Chou En-lai and Mao Tse- IUIIR have made a straight pitch. They are flushed with victory. "If I were on trr Chinese joint chiefs of staff I'd advice contin- icd probe. The first thing would the offshore islands. They lave the resources to take them f they are opposed only by the Chi-Nats (Chinese Nationalists). T t will be costly. ^ "They will go against Matsu In "It will be nice liming. It will G in with the Afro-Asian conference. "Queinoy won't be done that toon. This could be an error. Their movements and build-up can be shielded and not detected. But Quemoy should be Attacked after Matsu. "They're building up airport area behind Foochow. "This will Involve preparatory larrassing and air attack. There will be heavy losses. "Our MAAG (Military Assistance Advisory Group) is on Matsu advising Chi-Nats. If the Communi ,s want to employ all the forces they have, they can take Malsu. A month later or more — May or June — they attack Quemoy. 'Communists could fly fighter cover now for bombing Quemoy nnd part of Formosa. Communist fighter fields are not yet ready. "If it's question of Communists' control of air. this factor is now In favor of Formosa. "If attack is launched, it will be difficult to restrain Chiang. "When the fighting starts there's no use to tic hands or invoke Marquis of Quccnsbury rules Chiang will want to attack Communist air fields. "Chinese Communists can retal late. "That's the key fa tor for U. S This would involve Formosa itself The time clock is ticking now Operations will have to be expand ed to involve Formosa. "The 64 - dollar question is whether the offshore islands at tack is to involve Formosa. "It's up to the President to de cide what to do— "There is a real sense of urgency if the Chinese Communists push to their full capabilities. "We face a most serious sltua .ion this spring. "Communist China has »n un broken record of outwitting u, They have declared their objei ,ive. "I don't see how we can solv ,t by talk alone. "It is not sound war to yiel ilgh points 'and flank points an set up the ultimate battle line fo their attack. "Quemoy and Matiu are not to valuable, but loss would upset Ch Nats' morale. "Actual attack on Formosa would be difficult, presuming U. S. participation under treaty. "If U. S. decides not to let Quemoy and Matsu go, what Is the effect on our Quemoy and Erskine Johnson IN HOLLYWOOD HOLLYWOOD — (NEA) - Hoi- ywood »nd Grape VINE: That oth- r Gabor - little Eva — Is shopping for her third husband.

The venture would fail if we went in with hands tied— If a decision is made for U. S. to participate, It should not be a local, tactical battle. We would win a tactical battle and not win anything at all. "We must wreck this war potential. This involves all-out war. .We know targets to destroy their potential now. "We'd have to mobilize.

This is an advantage to us. "Number of things we can do in three weeks Is limited. We might strengthen our positions. We might initiate some deployment. You can't wave a wand and get force on the spot." There was much more of the same, including clarification of mnny points by reporters' questions nnd answers. But the above excerpts show what Admiral Carney said even if it doesn't correspond with his later recollections of what he meant to say. points would have been no glorious victory for Eiist-West since they could havs beaten four spades. In fact, however, they let South maki the vulnerable game; and this cos them far more than 100 points. West opened the king of clubs and dummy won.

"I don't expect to win over the men," she told me at the Luau, where she was with auto tycoon Jimmy Van. "But it's something I've always wanted to do and I'm not s° m S to miss tnl ' chance."

After, publication of "I'll Cry Tomorrow," she was singing in a night club and the owner seriously suggested: "Lillian, fall off the v -.ter wagon during this engagement and we'll get a wonderful publicity break." trumps and claimed ten tricks.
