Thui it falls to the Arab wi>r)d to prove that it really champions peace, and thai it has some regard for •the majority of world opinion. But any hope of such action is not 'strong enough to free the UN from its equally important duty of providing a means of carrying out its will. .Otherwise, the optimism and increased UN prestige, arising from the Soviet- American agreement on Palestine, will be greatly diluted. ^ VIEWS OF OTHERS Symptoms of Recovery A group of Republican congressmen seems to be in revolt against the leadership of Senator Taft and the national chairmanship of Brasilia Carrol Reece. Well-wishers of the GOP should find this encouraging. Dissension in the .ranks seems to be a sure political sign of vigorous convalescence. . •;' : : > ' " v. 'Better Than Nothing' . - The Palestine problem could never have been solved perfectly, if only be- •ci'use of its background of violence. .Too' many pas 6 ' 055 had been aroused, Too many passions had been aroused, evidences of bad faith had been translated into bloodshed in the last 30 years. Bitter resentment of any United Nations decision was a foregone conclusion. • • ' Yet partition seems the most sensible solution. The UN was confronted on the one hand by the, all-or-nothing attitudes of both Jews find Arabs. On the other were the commitments of Great Britain, the' mandatory power; which .the League of Nations had recognized, and some less official pledges made by this country. It may be faint praise to call partition "better than nothing," as some UN delegations dijj. -But that was the choice, and the decision was about all that anyone cduld reasonably, hope for. i The UN's task was made harder by tht behavior of all three principals. Tht British government pledged and unpledged. It played both ends against the middle. At the end it washed its ' handy of the* whole business by refus- 'ing to help enforce a decision that was not agreeable to both parties. Jewish terrorists prejudiced the ease of their more moderate and more " unfortunate brothers. Jewish extremists outside Palestine, particularly in, America, professed to speak for all Jewry •in their alniost hysterical attacks on British policy. Together, these two groups succeeded at times in making the most obvious British errors seem almost forgivable. The Arab governments, speaking for Palestine's Moslems, cried that partition was illegal, though there is no ^ exact precedent for this situation? and '\no authority to penalize the alleged illegality. They argued that the Jews have no claim to the Holy Land, which i*.« matter of opinion, not of fact. Th«y virtually incited their citizens to murder Jews by their talk of a "holy war." When the UN decision did come it / •was the Arabs' turn to become hysteri- _ cal. The Charter, they said, was dead. ' They refused to' be bound by tl\e Assembly's decision. Their behavior show' 'lid neither grace nor an acceptance of reality. It may be hoped that the Arab governments will cool down and admit the tragic foolishness of their position. They cannot expect support from the treat powers. Bloodshed will not make the UN Assembly change its decision. A*, responsible heads of nations, t these governments ought to admiC the - generally overlooked fact that the Palestine Arab* have been given iude- ^ pendence, just.ii* the Jews have been • fivto a government. : * Although the surface causes of post's ' partition itrjfe are political, the un, : 4tarlyiac reasons are clearly religious. <, So it becomes' the duty of the Moslem ! yotitical religious leaders to order an / «ad to it If they do not choos* to ac- Did He Merely Change the Labels? "This Is Freedom" "How can we best protect, perfect, and promote our American system of democracy an* free enterprise?" Eighteen 'leading Americans have voiced their answers to this question In a four weeks' scries of articles Just concluded In this newspaper. These contributors were hana picked for the competency of their opinions. They were certainly not chosen on any preknowledge or expectation of like coloration of their views. Of the eighteen, six are Industrialist*'and hearts of business associations, two are labor leaders, three, scholars and technical expert*, two experts on foreign affairs, three college presidents, one Cabinet member, and one tminent clergyman. The apparent weljht given ths business outlook dissolves In t the diversity of the business leaders' views. The articles defy neat statistical analysis. There are no disagreements, no conflicting answers. Rather, consistent with the very bigness ot the democratic concept, these men turn to the light the multitudinous facets o( the American gem. Some offer no direct answers to the tiuestlon. It Is In character, perhaps, that tile scholars should present Instead pertinent factual pictures; Commissioner Clague, ot .the high status of American labor; Professor Sllchter, of the mainsprings of the amazing American production; Dr. Ohilds, of the workings of public opinion. Some otter- answers by implication: Mr. Harsch's lucid exposition of the Consistency o! United States foreign policy, and Mr. Campbell's of Us core problem—making peace with Russia —convey a feeling that the general direction has been correct. We are unwilling ti rale tile excellence of such diverse contributions. But no readers \vlio have looked for' the more direct and comprehensive answers to the question we would suggest the rereading ot those by Bishop. Oxnam, college president Eisenhower, and inrtustr In lists Johnston, Luckmiui and Hoffman. This whole scries, fls^R cross-section t>amplu of the American outlook, leaves us with some strong Impressions. They are good, heartening Impressions,: too. First, these; eighteen men believe in the American system. They think it can and should be improved. But they are sure It is working, their words speak confidence and hope. Second, there is a npt&ble absence of that consciousness of class and sharp cleavage oi interests which have brought tragedy to many other lands. It Is not surprising that Philip Murray should seize this chance to speak out agaist'monopoly, and William Green to take a healthy swing at the Taft-Hartley Act. What, is peculiarly American is their hearty defense not alone of democracy' but also of free enterprise. Nor should one wonder that Mr. Bhrevc and Mr. Bunting, heading as they do two great associations of American commerce and manufacture, should offer praise of capitalism ami competition. What, In perspective, is noteworthy is the social consciousness evident In the programs of three other businessmen—Eric Johnston, Charles Luckman, and Paul G. Hoflnian— programs not many labor leaders, not to speak of Industrialists, would have thought of, let alone dared propose, a score of years ago. Lastly; we find a remarkable preponderance of opinion on one point—and a significant point t Is. Twelve of the eighteen—all but one of hose who spelled out their solutions—agree that the one effective answer to the challenge of other systems is to make the American system work better than It has ever worked before. That Is what this newspaper lias been saylnfe for ycais. over and over again. We are pleased to have this distinguished corroborntlon of our stand. The series makes, we think, a significant anthology of clear thinking and opinion. We are proud of our part in it —CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR.

Commonest athletic injuries affect joints, muscles and bones, am» Include strains, sprains, fractures and dislocations. A* the ankle, knee, hand and shoulder blades are most frequently injured, special preseason exercises are given to strengthen them. Football players usually have these joints taped before practice or regular games. Wear- ,lng pads has done much to prevent injury in contact sports. Team physicians, responsible for the care oj the men, make all decisions as to the best type of treatment.. Trainers work under .them, carrying out the details. A sprain Is a tear or stretching of one or more ligaments about a joint, caused by a sudden twisting or wrenching o* the'bones which make up the Joint. A strain, often called a "pull." Is an injury to a muscle or tendon, most frequently occurring In trackmen, especially sprinters. Ruptures may occur at any point along the muscles,, and saddle sores.

Binns tried to stir up the ' (its- common folks Estate Boards has decided* to own Its two-year-old baby, the National Home and Property Owners' Foundation. The result is to*split the housing lobby wide open on the eve of the congressional battle TO extend rent controls beyond next Feb. 29, as requested in President Traman's anti-inflation program. Whether or not the Foundation cnn survive at all without NAKEB support is now an open question. The bust-up Is interesting, because it reveals how these lobbying "front • organizations" get founded, who puts up the money and what for. In July 1945,..Herbert U. Nelson, executive vice president and chief Washington spokesman for the realtors, had the bright idea of trying to ot^iuSIze a home owners' protective association. Nobody had ever done it successfully before, even on a state or local city scale. But here was a group of over 20 million solid American citizens who owned or were buying their own homes. If they could be organized and stirred up about the dangers confronting them in government bureaucracy, socialized housing and such communistic stuff, they might exercise a powerful influence on Congress. Nelson sold the Idea to his hlgn command and they decided to put some money into it. To head It up, they selected Arthur W. Binns' of Philadelphia. House Organ for House l>wlicrs They started a house organ, "The Property Owner," and they put against specter of government housing. Local real estate boards were urged to form chapters of the Home and Property Owners' Foundation. Dues were put at $2 a year per home owner, with sustaining memberships from realtors at $50 and $100. Field secretaries were sent out to recruit, metnbcrs at so much a head. This year the Foundation' claims 162 chapters and 02,000 members. To make the thing look independent and prosperous, headquarters were moved out of the NAREB oflices. At one time there were about 40 people employed. Dr. Joseph W. Scay, an ex-college president, became director last' 'February at a salary reported to be *12,000 a year. J. E. Mack, the.legisla- tive representative and the only registered lobbyist, reported a ISOOO year salary. Binns, Nelson and others worked for free, plus expenses. During the first nine months of 1947, the Foundation reported to Congress it spent 1106,000 making it the eighth biggest spender among the Washington -lobbies. a pressure bandage applied.

Both fought against the Taft-Wagner-Ellcnder housing bill, public housing and rent control. Spokesmen appeared before congressional committees whenever they could. In August, a federal grany charged the Realtors' Washington Committee with conspiring to fix trust .suit against them. NAREB iromplly replied with _a charge that .his was a reprisal "for the fight against housing controls. Applause for Foundation, But No Support All this hullabaloo, was in the background when the National Association of Real Estate Boards met mid-November at San Francisco. Binns'made an Impassioned speech for more support to the Home and Property Owners' Foundation, and got a lot of applause from the several thousand delegates on the floor. But when the directors of NAREB met in executive session next day, they decided they had had enough. Herb Nelson kept pushing for affiliation of the Foundation .with th» paicnt association, to give the infant organization -fuller financial support. Nelson even offered to work for the Foundation for a dollar a year. But his directors told him that if he worked for the Foundation at all, he would have to stop working for NARHB.

Hollywood has hit a dead end. the present censorship code Is based on making films for the 11-year-old mind.

The present sysicm will hamstring Hollywood. They have gone as far as they can RO.

The adult pictures can then show realistic Mnrlr*, Inie dramatic situations In Ihe live* of real people.
