To find tlie truth about this shooting war and, if .more than one country is involved, to stop it is the first big test of UN's primary function. • From present indications the Soviet Union will never permit the UN to perform that function when Russian interests ave in any way concerned in the issue. No wonder the Soviets insist on the veto! It seems increasingly clear that the only way the UN will ever )je able to keep the p ace is by changing some oi its rules. Even though Russia, armed with a veto, stands ready to resist any change, this difficult solution must somehow be attained. There Seem lo Be Two Schools of Thought M/ ' HAP MV WORK ALL CLEANEP UP/ There is nothing new except what is forgotten.—Rose Berlin. Mum's the Successful Word Gov. Thomas E. Dcwey carefully avoided committing- himself on any major issue during his fence-buildup vacation trip. Maybe that's the reason why he was offered a bouquet ol l!Mo convention delegates almost everywhere he went. The West, we recall, has always taken qute a fancy to the strong, silent type- And Governor Dewey, on this junket, would have made the late William S. Hart seem til most garrulous by comparison. The Balky Balkan Bloc The stubborn effort of the Russian, Polish and Yugoslavian delegates to the Security Council to block formation of a long-term UN Balkan commission has only increased the suspicion that the Communist bloc is largely responsible for the intensified fighting n Greece. The UN spokesmen for these three governments staged what amounted to a filibuster in the ; Council sessions. It might. be surmised, from the (otic of their attack and of the news that coincided \vith il, that their object was, fourfold. They wanted to keep UN investi- • gators away from the present scent of • fighting. They wanted to keep UN observers permanently out of the Bal: kans. They apparently hoped the fighting would take a turn in the guerrillas' favor so that they could make good their threat to set up an independent . Communist state in northern Greece. And they obviously wanned to get into the record again their charge that the majority of the Balkan inceslijiixl- ing group were liars, and that their decision was preconceived, false and unjust- By taking this action tlie Russian, Polish and Yugoslavian representatives •• were trying to keep the Security Council from doing precisely what it was set up to do. And despite contrary charges from the three powers, the Council was seeking to do the job according to rules laid down in the Charter. The Greek government had formally notified the Council, through its ambassador in Washington , that Greece had been invaded from Albania by a force of Greek guerrillas and units of an international brigade. Such an act would constitute an act of aggression and a thre;t to the peace. ' Tlie Security Council must determine the existence of such acts, but, . before it can do so, it must know whether the charges are true. Russia's I Gromyko told the Council that it was being asked to set up a commission that would be permitted to make that -v. decision, although the Council has no Bright to delegate such authority. That, of course, j s nonsense. The Council members obviously could not ack up and go to Greece to see for themselves. And, since the Greek, government's charges were not substantiated, it became necessary to dele• gate the task of investigation to an appointed commission. Such a procedure would probably be necessary in most, if not all, similar complaints. It is important to the existence of the United Nations and to world peace to. get to the. root of the Greek trouble Is it a Qreek civil war carried on within the boundaries of Greece? ? Or is it a war on an international scale, VIEWS OF OTHERS Sun-Up on a New Order The time when Arkansas was just a cotlon and lumber state has gone. It's sun-it|> hereabouts on a new order ol things. Not only. Is the slale now turning out n growing variety of farm and factory products, but it Is steadily Improving their- quality. That last will mean much in the years ahead, when competition for markets becomes keener. The'gluts which may come are Ufcely to consist, ,as they did in years past, mainly o; ordinary and poor stuff. Just the other day, a new Arkansas Industry, Ihe Avoset Company, at Paris, shipped two carloads of butter to California. This indication of our rising dairy production hail spccl'il Importance in the fact that It was D?. score butter, made from sweet cream. That's a quality article of butter, which the cholcicst person would enjoy slapping ont hot biscuits or toast. And Paul Carlson, state-federal official who graded It. said It was the first carload of butter to get a 02 score since he had been grading In the state. This Incident points the way to greater security of markets for all of our butter factories. Yon may recall the surplus of butter, and the low price !or It. back in the depressed ia3fls. Exit Minnesota producers, who have long specialized In high-score, sweet-cream butter, had no trouble selling their output. It went at a premium, to a big chain store. Our canners quick-freezers nnd other food processors arc giving quality increased attention. More power lo them. They are thus getting a tighter grip on future markets, and this Will mean farm income, jobs and cash, which will benefit the entire state. Other kinds of producers are on ths same road. It's a development that touches one more rosy glint into the state's farm-Industrial prospects. —ARKANSAS DEMOCRAT.

Since the Repuhli- cims took over Congress on Jan. •1, there has keen a new legislative crisis or Uvo every day. But the concern has been over each .separate piece in the jigsaw puzzle.
