He drew the job of shooting down* our planes over .Yugoslavia. Now he apparently has been ordered to sec if his boys can push the American* around on the Italian-Yugoslav ' border 'and grab a little more territory than the peace treaty gave them. It's hard to imagine what Marshals Statin and Tito hope to win by this primitive strong-arm diplomacy. Perhaps first prize in an international \mpoutaritv contest. world's conscience. tfut, as the bottle proceeds to build up the Assembly in hope of saving the UN, we must keen in mind practical • things. There is no way t<5 give the General Assembly any positive powers without revising the UN charter. Such revision is subject to exactly the same veto that Russia lias in the Council. It is not conceivable that the Soviet Union will withhold that veto against a move to get around the veto. If Russia would co-operate to the extent of not vetoing such a charter change, she would co-operate to the extent of not abusing her Council veto. And then the charter change would be. unnecessary. The crisis confronting the UN today is not basically procedural. It can't be resolved by tinkering with the machinery. It can be stated simply: The non-Soviet powers have compromised and hacked /water until their backs arc iiKuinsl open sky. One more step and they totter over the cliff. Russia presses forward. She refuses to concede or compromise. \Vu, and those who share our viewpoint, have made a stand under Secretary of State Marshall. The crisis is here. It involves one vital question: Will Russia bull it through and break up the UN? Or, discovering that we have backed as far as we can go, will .she "play ball for world peace? •The New 1948 Model VIEWS OF OTHERS Aid to Europe Is for Our Own Sake •HIWPW WELL, r\te oor M/ORDER IN AT A LCJT OF PLACES Not All Butchers Slaughtering Purses of the Poor Housewives Mr. Lewis' New Revolt ;Onee again,.

OT11MAN (United Press Staff Correspondent! WASHINGTON. Sept. 29. tUP) — I must extend my sympathy and my apologies today to Dick Rlckert, the honest butcher of Slmmokin, Pa. If I'd only known what would Woman Critic of Universal Military Training Gets Free Trip to Camp at Cost of Taxpayers altitudes capacity. LUNGS an increase ir chest happen to brother Dick (that's what the happy customers call him) I never would have written an item about him selling sirloin steaks for 39 cents a pound ami lamb cho;>s lor 14 and a half cents. When that hit print, acme New.s- liictures rushed across tlie land telephoto reproductions of hLs advertisement ill the Shamokiu News- Dispatch. If ever a paid advertisement had become a red-hot news picture, this was it. Photographers haf'-cued to Shi- mokin and forced Brother Dick, all 259 pounds of him, to pose in the act of slicing 39-ccnt chuck roasts. Reporters interviewed him, one after another, .and Brother Dick patiently repeated the story of his pre-war price tags. This added up to hard work on Brother Dick's part, long hours, careful buying, conservative meat cutting, and small profits. It also added up to more black headlines. And .there was Ihc joint congressional price investigating committee asking whether I could put the lawmakers in touch with Brother Dick. "We want to shake his hand." the committee said. "And find oni how he does it." So I did the necessary and Brother Di:k has received an invitation —not a subpena. iniml you—asking if he possibly can find the time to appear before the subcommittee of Sen. Ralph E. Flanders of Vt.. to reveal the secret of his 29-cent hamburger and 35-ccnt. rib roasts. Here he is a national figure already. If he can find a boy to stay in his shop while he lalks to the senators—and he kind of figures this is his duty—he'll be the best i known butcher in America. Then Russia's Choice Undoubtedly, it is trite to say that th'e United Nations faces its greatest crisis.: Everybody—even the diplomats who .'tried hardest to hide their concern—is saying that the "UN has been pushed to where it must put up or shut .up. It's trite, but it's true. It's so true, and so important, that it can't possibly be repeated too often. The more sincerely one hopes .that the UN eventually will succeed, the more it becomes his duty, to insist that the world pence organizations must absolutely find find some way—and soon—of settling international arguments without exploding atom bombe. I We <k>n't have to ask whether the UN .experiment was worth while. It was more than that. It was inevitable. There'had to be a table around which spokesmen for the nations could sit and substitute words for bullets. Wa provided uich a table. It in the United Western Europe has taken stock of Us resources nml its prospects. The 1C nations have estimated their needs, how much they can produce, and the amount they can export, during the next four years. And their deficit, they find, will be 22 bll|ion. 440 million dollars. That sum! says the report, stands between "catastrophe" for western Europe, poverty, misery mvd perlunw the ruin o[ Its woy of life, and recovery which would enable the 16 nations "to make thejr full contribution to the welfare of the world." • And they ask the United SlRtes to furnish 19 billion. 300 million of the prospective deficit. They hope to get the' other three billion, HO million from the International Bank. Is this country willing lo risk. 19 billions more on western Europe? We haven't much time to decide. The cards are down. On one side of the table Is Russia, gambling fur (he rnastefy of EuroiK, and on the other side is our own country, playing for n restored, free Europe, as « necessity lo n normal, sale world. We have already bet heiwily—poured billions into western Euroi«. We have announced, in the Marshall plan, that we will put up more. If wesern Europe will try resolutely to help herscll. Russia has answered with greater effort to control nil of Europe. Will we quit the game now, keep our money, and thus my to Russia, "All right, you win. Do '« you Ukc with western Europe," That wouldn't be the American way. Once having set into any enme of destiny, we have played our hnud out—and often have won with what looked like poor cards. To finance western Europe further would b« a gamble. Probably little, II any, of the money would be repaid. And there is no certainly that western Europe has the vitality to rebuild its wny of life, even with our help. But there is a clmnce of success. The very fact that those 1C nations dared to go nhend with this plan. In defiance of Russia, is u hopeful fact. It indicates that the old independent spirit of those nations Is still alive. We dnre not, If we can stop it peaceably, let Russia lake over nil E«ro|>e, For we would face an arrogant power made otninotls by tremendous resources. The loan request should be carefully weighed. We should advance not a dollar more than Is absolutely necessary to a program of sell-lvelp. Then let us furnish the sum actually needed. It Is for the same freedom the Mime security asd welfare for ourselves, that we lougnt and poured out hundreds of billions to save. —ARKANSAS DEMOCRAT. BY VETF.Il EDSON I French cheese to build up balance ' NEA Washington Correspondent j ol trade credits. So I tan serve you WASHINGTON, Sept. 29. (NEA) -Mrs. Edward 8. Hnrber writes the '.lib news for the Arlington Sun, a tile weekly suburban newspaper ubllshcd over on Hie other side >f the Potomac River. Mrs. Barber kes to mix in a few of her own leas along with, her club notes, lowever, and recently .she swung few fast lines at Universal Mili- •ary Training. Day after the paper came out, she ot a call from an Army colonel at 'ie Pentagon, which is also in.Ar- 'ngton. The colonel didn't complain bout the Item, but he : did- invite ' Irs.

Congressman Forrest .''A, larne&s ol Indiana calls this "lob- •ying against Congress with tax- >yers" money." CHEESE AND ECONOMICS Dr. Cuiinnr Myrdal, Swedish Coni- lerce Minister, was in Wnshlng- on recently, and he told a story f how European recovery is till •ailed up. In Paris. Myrdal had dinner with Jean Monnet, French economic, exert. Near the end of the dinner \Tonnet said. "I'd like to oifer yon •ome good Camembert cheese. But ou sec we are exporting all our ' AA of now, the UN is not functioning. With her veto, Russia is slopping dead every effort to attack a potential catMeTof future war. She has tlie Security; Council stymied. The General Assembly has no veto, but neither has it any power to take positive action on other than procedural matters. Now the United States wants to build up the Assembly to fill some gaps left by th« Council's impotency. Unfortunately, the possibilities along this lin« are very limited. TTh« Assembly can remain in per- maiMnt session through a standing tonanitt**, md it can provide special coaonxttCOT—-which Russia forbids the . Council to do—to witch aggression. aqpriaMnta can raakt the As» better sounding board for the only this Imported British Cheddar cheese." A short time later Dr. Myrdftl was in London, where he had dinner with Herbert Morrison, who is' in charge of planning for British economic recovery. "I'm, sorry I .can >fler you only this imported French Carnembert." said Morrison. "As you. know, we arc exporting all our British-made cheese to build up our foreign trade balances.'' '. When Myrdal was made secretary o! the United Nations Economic Committee for Europe, : it was generally believed that he.would support recovery policies which were in line with"Russian ideas. But .in recent conferences with American oflicials he yave some surprising slants on the situation. SAYS PLAN NEGIJiCTS EASTERN EUROPE The Marshall plan for Europe i ail, Dr. Myrdal said in effect, because it concentrates its atlentiol pli .western Europe/What It should io"is promole the recovery of eas-= | tern Europe. Myrdal's argument was j Then tlie co-op officials add the that traditionally western and tas- i kirker that one r.f tlie principal tax tern' Europe have always 'traded, reforms advocated by private en- Soviet opposition. They have had ho success in trying to get the Russians to agree to economic unity lor eastern and western zones of Germany and Austria. They had no belter luck trying to open up the Danube for trade nav- .gallon. They tried to bring Russia in ; on the preliminary .Paris conferences on the Marshall plan, but Mblotov would have none of it. Then the Russians browbeat .the eastern European countries into boycotting the meeting of the 16 western European countries. And Myrdal complains nothing is being done to aid cistern Europe. ., •• . .•-»** One of the main Republican lines of atta-k against co-operative business enterprises is that they escape federal income taxes.'and .so have an unfair competitive advantage over private business. Co-op defenders .come back with the argument that tht:^ prof its- -if any^-of co-ODerative enterprise go to trie shareholders as , dividends. These shareholders must taxes on the dividends. from the blood to the air. Repeated checks, for oxygon lack, of patients with bulbar poliomyelitis result in the saving or many lives, as nn opening can be made in the trachea when signs of anoxia appear. When oxygen lack results from anemia or shock, the batient is given a blood transfusion to provide more blood to carry oxygen. •QUESTION: Is a heart murmur serious? .ANSWER: Not lain and I apologize. A peculiar backwash of the story is the fact that there seem to be Brother Dicks selling meats at reasonable pri:es in many a small city. Why this should be, while butchers in the big 'towns weigh steaks on Jewelers' scales, is a mystery I hope the senators can unravel. Published Phil McCullcn of the Blackwcll.
