Thomas E. Dcwey recently spfent some time in his home town ol Owosso, Mich., renewing aetniaihUinee wijh people, who rcmembcre-.! him JIB ;i boy. Elsewhere in Michigan the Uovui- nof seemed to encounter ;> little dif!i- culty in locating 'Republican leaderK who remembered him as a candidate, for President in 1948. New Voice in the UN had no right to settle it by military operations, including tliu aerial bombing of cities. The United Nations wa.i set up mainly to prevent just such action. The Council might also have restored some waning prostiKc by acting quickly. Here at last seemed to b<: a case in which the five permanent nfenr bcrs could reach unanimous agreement. Well, it may not be too lalu Io remedy the damage. A dc-cisivc use now of the Security Council's full power will not restore the lives destroyd needlessly in Indonesia. But it may pi-event a continuation of the unnecessary bloodshed and, incidentally, restore faith in the possibility of world peace preserved through the United Nations. Hung Up The voice of a new government has been raised in the United Nations. India, though not yet wholly independent, lias spoken through her interim government against the Dutch military campaign iiv Indonesia. The',vilest was announced >,y the interim government's vice president., Pandit Jawaharlal Nehni. His statement accompanying the announcement is worth the thought of Uio Scciuily Council members and, indeed, of ail of us. For Pandit Nchi'ti turned nil en lion v from the continuing two-world differences that sometimes seem to threaten the UN's existence, and recalled some of the half-forgotten purpose; tor which the orgaimatii'iri 'was 'formed. The'Charter, includes the following among those purposes: "To maintain international peace and security; . . . to take effective collective moiisurcs for the prevention and removal ot threats to-the peace, and for the suppression of acts of aggression or other breaches'of the peace . • . to develop friendly relations among nations Lascd on respect for the principle of equal rights and self-determination of peoples." Clearly the Dutch action is not based on recognition of e<iual rights and self-determination. It is based on the colonial concept, of Ihi^ while man's racial, intellectual, cultural and physical superiority. As Pandit Nehru puts it, "Apart from the merits of the Indonesian casn . . . the real question and tho larger question Ls that of military action and aggression of any nation over any other nation, without reference to iir ; ternational arbitration. Who is to judge merits—the nations that attack? Obviously that is not good enough. "Asia, having suffered greatly in the past from foreign domination and exploitation, is determined to eiui it. Any attack on the freedom of people in any part of Asia affects the rest of this great continent . . . An attempt to . continue colonialism will not only endanger, peace but will also coinr. in the way of economic recovery the world ! over." It seems inconceivable that the Netherlands government is not aware of the truth of those words. It seems even,less conceivable that the government of a country which suffered so brutally from NaV.i aggression, and : which'saw its cities destroyed and its civilians slaughtered without pity, .should now employ essentially the samo method^ against the Indonesians. It may be wondered, too, why the members of the Security Council, who "shall determine the existence of any threat to the peace, breach of the pe»ce, or act of aggression," sat quietly by through all this. Here was a case where the Council might have functioned quickly.

" In short, says Fenton, we made, he won't make." EVA IN THE BACKGROUND The possibility that Peron and his buxom blonde wife Eva misht be getting ready for a trip Io the U. S. has been gossiped about a good bit. There is pretty general cocktail party agreement in Washington that if Eva came to the U. S. she would be the biggest story since Wally Simpson married the Duke of, Windsor. Curiosity about the Argentine first lady has teen increased as a result of her European tour. Fenton says there Is nothing In his proposed agreement with the Argentine government calling for a build-up of the Peron.'; for a visit to the U. S He does believe, however, that if President Truman should go to Rio de Janeiro (or the close of the coming Pan-American Conference, it would be considered a courtesy call on all the American republics. Their presidents might, Uierefore, be expected o make a return courtesy call to Washington, similar to the Truman-Aleman visits here and "Mexico City.

Written for NBA Service Public health officers are rc- uelant to advise control mcas- ires for infantile paralysis which are not consistent witii our present-day knowledge or the cause and spread of the disease. They real- •tx that once an epidemic starts it will most likely run Its course, al- .hough control measures may keep | a few people from Retting the infection. From carriers the virus is trans- nltted by intimate contact, contaminated hands, or Infected articles. When an epidemic starts, it tends to spread radially like Ihe spokes of a wheel. Where the disease first appears, it, first disappears. It require!! 6 to 8 weeks for the pe.ik to develop and 8 to 10 weeks for the cutbreak to recede. Children under the age of 12. members of certain families, pregnant women, and children who have had their tonsils removed during an epidemic are most likely to contract poliomyelitis. . There is no known preventive for infantile paralysis Public playgrounds and swimming pools should be closed in epidemics to lessen intimate contact between children. Closing theaters and schools is not indicated as a general rule, and jittle is accomplished In postponing the opening of school except in certain rural districts in which children might be brought together for the first time during an epidemic. GUARD AGAINST FLIES Fly control measures should be stepped up. although spreading DDT from an airplane after an epidemic has started is of doubtful value. "Flies should be prevented from breeding near sewage dis- throuKh v~hic!i a community disposal plants or other channels may contain the virus. Infantile paralysis patients can ie admitted tc general hospitals, where they should l« handled the lame as typhoid fever patients, ff <ept hooie. tiicy should be iso- Inled from tw,> to four wccxs. Albert B. Snbin, M.D.. Cincinnati, points out that infantile paralysis seems more commonly to affect people who have made the greatest effort toward sanitation: he show.- that the disease has been more common in our American troopr, than in the native population. Can lack of sanitation, in which food infected with poliomyelitis virus is eaten by natives, result in Immunity? Editors: Earl J.

JOIIN'SON (United Press Staff furrcsiioiiilcnU SHANGHAI. July 31. iDclaycrtl (UP) — To an Occidental everything out here seems strange especially the Chinese civil war. It is not much like any war you rend about In the newspapers or history books. There are no front lines, no trenches, no air raids or printed casualty lists — nothitv; comparable to I.<«-koul Mountain, The fighting is all in the North, above the Yangtze Hiver. Most of it is elose (|iiai-!u combat but 0:1 a smaller seal.? than the phase of World Wn- II. The hand grenade is the most widely u.w.l weapon.. Next come Ihe rifle and the machineKun noth sides have some artillery, buc it iX horse • drawn and is mod only when con- leslinf; a town The Chinese Communists or People's Liberation Army, as they call themselves, concentrate on trying to occupy farm lands and coil fields, and cutting off railroads that bring food and fuel to the cities. Let Cities "Hie On Vine" Their strategy is to take the IR- riculturc and natural resources and let the cities die on the vine. Thus the w:ir goes on in isolated pockets all over the North mid alonK the main railroads. The Chinese Nationalists march up the railroute toward Southern Shansi Province where there's coal oV to- 'ward Honan which is mainly agricultural and natural resource?, shooting and scattering the Communists as they go. The Communists retreat to the hills and then filter back down in guerilla bands, and blow up the railroads behind the Nationalists. This goes on faster than the nationalists can repair the rails and the bridges. H is one of the reasons for China's commercial paralysis The biggest battles thus far have been in Manchurin where the Communists still hold the initiative Monitoring the Chinese Communist radio alone you think the Nationalists are being slaughtered and annihilated at every encounter. The American Army people here say both sides exaggerate their victories worse than the Japanese in World War II. The difference is that the ordinary people don't follow the war closely so Hie exaggeration don't make in uoh. impress ion. There is no public arlulatioii of war heroes on cither side. Most people don't even know who the heroes are although the American Army men say some 'very •competent "generals"'arc at ! . work on both sides men like the Communist Lin Pouehcng who crossed the Yellow River with 40.000 men and took Taian and the Nationalist.
