All holders of the Congressional Medal of Honor are being given lifetime passes on military airplanes, but—and here's the gimmick— only within the continental United States and on a "space available" basis. The chief purpose, it was explained, is to give the heroes a lift to patriotic reunions. There aren't many living holders of the nation's highest military decoration. If the armed forces can't find a place /or them on military planes for occasional travel in peacetime, it might seem better if they forgot the whole matter, rather than to hedge their gift with such niggardly restrictions. The Same Old Hurdle treaty would ne«d only * two-third* YOU to becbm* effective. Thii promises only A partial ichi- tion, but it is better than none, And it ii a way out that might well be taken up by the "Little Assembly" In iti present first session. If even a partial solution can he found, there ii no reason to wait until 1950 to start looking for it. VIEWS OF OTHERS At ft member of the American delegation, Harold E. Stasaen played an important part in tlie San Francisco conference of 1945, which produced the United Nations Charter. Since then, he has shown many times that his interest in the organization's success is as keen ai his knowledge of it is intimate. So His views and opinions on the UN deserve attention. A few days ago, Mr. Stassen proposed that the United States call » UN convention in 1950 to amend the Charter and strengthen the organization itself. He, like most of us, wants to see the single-power veto ended, and world control and inspection of atomic- energy facilities established. He wanti to see the UN set up its own police force, and ha favors world law to cover human rights and special problems. For the two intervening years, Mr. Stassen suggests n five-point program —"continued success of our free economy in America"; a follow-through on the Marshall Plan without bi-partisan "quibbling or politics"; a strong military position with increased air power and research; no more exports to Russia, which might form part of R war machine; and a world-wide campaign of ideas to combat Russian propaganda. All this seems fine, except for one plaguing, familiar question: How is the UN going to abolish the veto That is the first and last hurdle that blocks any effort toward major Charter reform. No soonsr does the reformer start galloping toward his goal, than he checks up short at this obstacle. For Russia can veto ban the veto. If Mr. Stassen has an itlea of how the obstacle can be avoided, he should come out with it now—not two year from now. The weakness of the UN, like the weakness of western Kurope, is a present danger. Mr. Stassen's interim plan is primarily a domestic program. His plan for strengthening the UN is a world program. There seems no reason why the two cannot be carried on side by side—if only the veto hurdle can be cleared. If it cannot be, then almost certainly there will not be agreement on atomic energy. There will be no world law or authority to enforce its decisions. The best proposal that we have seen for bypassing the veto would enforce decisions on matters threatening the peace through a treaty of the majority of UN members. This seems possible under the "collective self- de£ens«" claus* of the Charter, Such a Who Shall Goto College? The report» of Ihe President's Commission on Higher Education are arousing iharp opposition ^n aome quarters. The Commission'! goal nf doubling college attendance by 1960 Ii particularly under fire. This goal U Inseparable from It* announced aim of equalling opportunity to tttend collet*. To lhl» end an immediate large-scale program of Federal jcholarships Is advocated. A number of noted educators, including President conant o( Harvard, have Ion insisted that such a pro- grim was necessary to jttract more talent to college from the lower-Income groups. Many students enabled to attend colleie under the Gl Bill of Rights have shown a far greater capacity to benefit by it than more mediocre itudenls who drift through college as a matter of prlvelcged custom. But this Is no argument for encouraging Increased numbers of mediocre student* lo go to college. The Commission appears to ignore this danger when it urges free education in publicly controlled Institutions on the Junior college level. The emphasis, in fact, throughout its second report !» disturbingly on Ihe mechanism of increasing college attendance rather than on R prior improvement of the quality of education as a whole. Until secondary schools.. succeed better In turning out lively thinkers and searchers, a large majority ot their graduates will benefit litlle from college training. The greatest needs are still for the training of first-class leaders .at Ihe college level and of first-class citizens at the secondary-school level. Higher education must always be higher Ihan Hit needt of the average citizen. It must just as certainly not be merely education for the hlghar income levels. As an open field lo lalenls from every level o, society, it can help to produce the sort of society In which equality of opportunity will Increasingly appear. —CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR. -iny attempt lo Preparing for the Big November Vote Harvest BARBS ••*••••«•»••*••*••• Congress Has Way of Applauding Suggestions From President and Then Following Tradition Revenue Department Gets Early Start with Flood of T-Day Mail THE DOCTOR SAYS B» Edwin T.
