Another August Anniversary Even .if the momentous .anniver'sai- ies of the first .atomic Ixmib explosion -and Japan's capitulation hud not occurred this month, .it is likely that another August anniversary would .have passed unnoticed. Few perhaps even remember , :iiow that six iyeaVs before V-,I Day, .on Aug. '14, 1941, the statement which 'ic'ame to be known as the Atlantic•Char- __]jter was made public. "-;' Things were going badly for,- the Allies when 'President Roosevelt and • Prime Minister Churchill met ''somewhere on the Atlantic." Only the, British .Empire and the Soviet Union, new: •;ly^attacked, .were opposing -the Nnzi .armies. The outlook was not only dis- '•cburaging -but desperate. • Yet,_ in retrospect, the decisions ^facing the -heads of the two govern- iments seem comparatively simple. The ;only problem was the Nazis" defeat. ;If Hh'is could not be accomplished, knew 'what to -expect. If it could—and the Charter speaks bravely of a time "after Hhe final destruction of the Nazi tyran- sny"—the shape of a better world was -.clearly visible. The two countries, the chiefs' of •state agreed, "-respect the right of all [Peoples .'to. choose the form : of government under which .they will live; and : they wish to see sovereign Tights and self-government restored to those who have been -forcibly deprived of them. "They will endeavor," the Charter continued, ".with due .respect -for'-the 'existing obligations, to further the enjoyment by all states, great or small, .victor or vanquished, of access on equal terms, .to the trade and -to the -raw -materials of the world which are •needed for their economic recovery. , "They desire to bring about the full- .eat collaboration -between all nations in •the economic field with the object of securing, for all, improved labor .standards, economic adjustment and social security." . That waa to be the .new .and 'hettST" world, with "a wider and permanent system of general security" which would lift the "crushing .burden of armaments" f rom peace-loving peoples. It may also have been forgotten that Russia was among the 26 nations at war with-the Axis which, on Jam 2, IT -^Tv* the Declaratio " of the United Nations. The cynicism of Russia's declared ort of those purposes and princi- L 8 too _, evlden t to require comment.

But its • declarations are right and necessary if •pence is (o endure. They must be car- qieil out and, we believe, they will be. For now the western world, though weakened by -war, is neither 'blind nor .complacent.'It can see history repealing itself. This time, at least, it will .not slide helplessly into war down ways greased by compromise, overconfidtiice nml iinpreparedness. V^T^FoTHiRS™ Can To ft Do It? Hobert A. Taft's "trial run"—to sec If he car? keep Thomas E Ocwcy from foreclosing on the •Republican presidential nomination—has gotten away to a lair start. This keynote s|>eeeh hardly constitutes a complete Tuft platlorm. He is expected to develop various "planks" as his siieokljig tonv of Ihe West unrolls. But this can be taken us a good preview. In It Senator Tail stepped lor- ward as the s|H>kesman for Congress, With -President Truman already tacitly .chosen ns ihe Democratic candidate, differences between him and the Republican Congress naturally become major Issues for the campaign. And whoever speaks for Congress becomes in many respects the natural .nominee against the. Democratic ' Execulive. ' This.Is" Senator Tail's advantage over Governor Dewey, -who as Governor of New York has found—or made—^many occasions for clearly defined opposition lo the President. And the Senator seems to be making the most of his position. For not only did he devote his speech • to 'the congressional wars'.with Mr. Truman: he .sharply attacked the Presidents-Velio on more than one occasion has .singled out Mr. Tali lor similar attention. A more colorful figure might build this per-" sonal controversy with the President into n dramatic and liard-to-reslst bid lor the nomination. Bill Mr. Taft is one of the most unspectacular of leaders. This is coimtedy by many Republican politicians as a serious handicap. And they list other factors as milking him a very vulnerable candidate. The senior Senator from Ohio is widely labeled a "reactionary" ami an "Isolationist." Mr. Tutt himself doubtless knows that, to win the middle-of-the-road vote he must free -himself from these labels. In this opening speech :he frankly faced the charge of "anti-labor" bias by defending tlie Taft-Hartley bill und declaring that many workers .already realized that it protects them. He also has a program of "social reform" cm- bodyhig Federal -aid for medical, housing, and •education programs wliich has been saved lor next .year—ran election year. Moreover, he /now says little about Ills part in demobilizing Federal controls. Indeed he seems to be trying rather : unfairly to .put the blame on the President, arguing that the final orders abandoning OPA and the '-Wyatt housing program came from the While House. The Taft "plank" on which greatest Interest has centered is foreign policy. Here tile Senator was. as usual, pretty outspoken. But his words cnn / liave won him few new supporters. It may be smart politics to blame President Roosevelt and President Truman-Tor the present slate of the world—the "suppression ol freedom" and the "wrecked economy of Europe." There have been manifest mistakes. Uui if senator Taft is to do that it will be .necessary to ask whether the very tilings he criticizes would have been remedied if American policy had followed the line of his votes In Congress? Would either freedom or prosperity hnvc been greater had there been no British loan? Or if the Hull reciprocal trade policy had been completely abandoned? As it is. Mr. Tart played a sorry role In crippling the "Voice of America- information service and opposing any international control of atomic energy. Mr. Tall, may be courageous in sticking slowly to Ins prewar Views. But many other Americans have—hue Senator Vandenberg-changed Uieir approach to foreign affairs, and if Senator Tim hopes to get their support he will have lo tiller n lar more poslltve and .progressive program In that WARNING—It's a Small World! field. -CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR.

(NEA1 —If any naive soul still lias any Ideas that the United Stntes sugar Indi&try is run on a free enterprise basis, study the Sugar Act of 194«, Just signed by the President. The chances of a veto were considered slim because this might throw the world sugar markets into complete chaos. Also, the act was cleared by the White House. Slate, Agriculture and Interior Departments -before it was sent to Congress. And it is believed to have had the blessing of Dr. Ramon Gran, PresUlent of Cuba, and his sugar-conscious admini.slralion. Everyone of importance in Ihe sugar business admits that this new 1 act puts the industry under lighter controls than under the New Deal. That such complete control was up- proved by n Republican majority Congress—supposed lo be dedicated to free enterprise ami the removal of all government controls- -may at llrsl. xecm surprising. -vet&cil Congress had nothing lo <io with j any more I it. Tlie bill was written by the sugar of Industry industry boys themselves, with a few amendments sluck in by Slate and Agriculture departments. The new law lakes the place of e New Deal's Sugar Act of 1937. Kit \vas due to expire next Dec. , anyway, after a one-year ex- nsion. Congress at first wanted to id it for another year. Hut the Cubans objected, because they wanted a larger percentage of the U. S. market. ANDKHSON DKOIDKR I-'OK NKW ACT Around Mny.l, Secretary of Agriculture Clinton Anderson decided there should be a- new act, with n jiew approach to the problem and a bigger quota for Cuba. The problem seems to have been first put n]] to the U. S. Beet Sugar Association. Meeting in tlie office of their Washington secretary, Robert 11. Shields, the beet boys finally agreed that what they would like was a guaranteed production and consumption of 1,800.000 tons a year for the next five years. ! - U.

The number of hives present at one time runs from one to .several, hundred and the size from a pin- hc:ui to a.s large as the flat of the hand. Fluid accumulations Vary which are superficial to large, deep, disfiguring swellings. In; nil' forms of hives, itching and swelling are the chief complaints. Any part of the body may be'af- fected by hives, but portions constricted by clothing nre most apt to affected. In persons who are subject to hives, there is a tendency for tiic condition to come back in the siime spots. Nearly two-thirds of all people liave had one or more- attacks of-hives in-their lifetime. Hives have an unnredictable course. The majority -of swellings llarc up. last a few days t-o a week,; and then disappear.

(UP) — The United Stales decision to waive $1.0M.COO,000 in claims against Italy was viewed in diplomatic quarters today as a stern notice that this government was ready and willing to do everything in its power to bolster Italy's.non-Communist government. . rraking its cue from the Truman I'stop Communism" doctrine, the State Department last week wrote off the huge Italian debt and reaffirmed its intention to strengthen present friendly relations between the two countries. 'American officials tlescriljed the unusual action toward a former enemy power as an effort to make some amends' for tlie "burdensome 11 conditions laid down in the Italian peace treaty. They expressed .the hope that other nations—iiicnlding Russia — would make similar concessions to get Italy back on -her feet. Secretary.of Stntc George C. Mar- sliall Jias openly expressed his concern .over Italy's chances of stemming Communism. When Premier Atcide de .Gasperi's non-Communist government was set up three months ago, _Marslinll promptly wished it ever 'success. Moscow made "no effort to hide its displeasure over this turn of political events. .• The U.S.-Soviet tussle over It- alp's political destlng'began at the Paris 'Big Four •meeting last year when Hie Italian |)eace treaty was negotiated.

It covered $523.- COO.OOO'for civilian supplies furnished-by tlie American Army, $305,OUO,COO for occupation costs, and miscellaneous .bills amounting lo another $1W5.000,000.
