Lewis had been the only one of 13 AFL presidents to refuse to sign a non-Communist affidavit, then required of all union officials before the union could use the National Labor Relations Board facilities. So the AKL passed a resolution, over his loud and typically yituperous protests, that abolished his title, permitting all AFL unions to participate in NLRB benefits. So credit the labor-maligned Tat't- Hartley law with an assist on a pul- 'oul many of us have been hoping to see. More WailacerPepper Foreign Policy Sen. Claude Pepper's proposed remedy for the United Nations' most painful troubles can be recommended only for its simplicity. He would eliminate all*''iiT«concilable;issues" from- the Assembly, thus clearing the air, protcct- In'^ithe UNvfrpm destruction, and letting the Assembly get on with its economic, social and spiritual work. This would halt Assembly discussion of the most vital matters pertaining to world peace and the UN's continued existence. It would abandon, so far as the Assembly is concerned, any attempt to settle those "irreconcilable Issues" which, if they are not reconciled, promise to lead the world to disaster.' : What are the issues? They would certainly have to include the use and abuse of the veto, the control of atomic energy, the American proposal of a continuing 57-member Assembly to act as an informal Security Council, and the matter of ».• UN commission in the Balkans. Such a solution as Senator Pepper proposes may seem inviting j n such a discouraging time as the present. In personal disagreements a truce is sometimes reached by the expedient of say- v ing, "We just won't discuss it any more." But the two-world split I., no w too wide to be patched up as one would patch up a domestic quarrel. It must surely have occurred to Mr. Pepper that a one-year gag on the Assembly would only make the trouble; »ome issues less reconcilable, for it . would not affect the Security Council. - There Russia, \yith her veto, could continue to thwart the will of the majority. She would not be embarrassed or interrupted by the voices of world opinion speaking through the Assembly. The hope that majority world opinion might soften the adamant Soviet stand on "irreconcilable issues" seems to have been .the chief reason why the western democracies brought these is• sues to the Assembly'a attention. By proposing to silence discussion of them in the Assembly, Mr. Pepper ^ vo „l<^ neenvto be stacking the cards even more ^in Russia's favor. i The senator'* proposal was only one item of a nine-point peace plan which he presented at a dinner in his honor given by the American Slav Con- sresa. in New York. Among .other points were world disarmament (also •n "irreconcilable issue") and a proposal that the United Slates contribute - 150 billions for "European recovery over • five-year pericxi. This Kift. would be handled Jjy tin UN. It could easily be paid, said Mr. Pepper 1 , by tfie United Slates Bloppintf it* individual aid-to-Kurope payments and eliminating the entire budget for national defense! Under the Pepper plan, the Russian government undoubtedly could and would control the allocation of American billions through its UN vein power. Under the IJepper plan, this country would })« rendered powerless to defend itself. This, as we understand il, is another revealing glimpse of the Wallace- Pepper foreign policy. It is clearly H policy which, while invoking the name of Franklin ty. Roosevelt and waving the banner of "progressivism," would commit this country to the most callous isolationism by abandoning the free peoples of tlie world to (he unchecked advance of totalitarian communism. VIEWS OF OTHERS The Public Is the Key Several of President Truman's advisers are now convinced that even .stop-gap aid lor Europe win be too Illtte and too late. They believe -some European governments will exhaust their dollars before Congress acts and that the pip? lines o( supplies cniinot be iciillcd lor weeks. When he .talked with Congressional leaders a few day« ago Mr. Tinman indicated that he had been unable lo find any way of meeting the crisis by exercise of Executive powers, it is now reported that ills aides are combing the possibilities again, In view of the probability that even with a special session. Congressional action will not come before January. There is some reason to"bcltevc (Hat tne Commodity Credit Corporation has ample authority—going back to 1033—to buy up the lood Europe will need, tf this were done Die supplies would be on hand ready for shipment as soon as Congress voted the funds. There is nlso the possibility that tile new Defense Department could quickly put some dollars into Europe by speeding up the stockpiling purchases or needed military materials. Another possibility is to smoke out some ol (be fugitive capital that lias taken reluee in the United States, such a unove would be sure to have wide public supx-rt. .That support is the key lo action. Even should Mr. Truman find some Executive authority which could be stretched to permit quick action he would hardly dare use it without public approval. President Roosevelt stretched Ills powers when he made the destroyeis-ior-bascs trade in 1940. But he had public approval. That Is what Mr. Truman must have eitllcr to sane- lion Executive action or to push congress along. That is why I lie Government should be doing much more than It has to help the Amcliran pwplo understand the present crisis —CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR. BARBS By HA1.

Othman, Who Does Not Swoon, Wonts to Hear Frank Sinatra THE DOCTOR SAYS If your heart beats too fast If it skips a beat. If you art short of breath or if you h*ve pains around your heart, consult a physlcaui for examination insUad of trylni to make your own diagnosis. In raanv cases, Ihe physician's diagnosis will be nervousness and not heart trouble. Our heart beats day and night 'lowly or rapidly depending on' whether we are resting or wortdng There are two sets of nervat which connect the brain with the heart —one to make It pump slowly and the other to make it work more rapidly. It can be braked down to 60 beats a minute or speeded up to 140 beats a minute without damage to Ihe organ. Normally, we are not conscious of our heart action. When w* arc aware that It Is beating rapidly, the symptom Is cslled palpitation If the cause is physical, the underlying condition can be treated If it Is du e to tension, it will disappear only when the patient stops ! worrying about It and the tension is relieved. Heart disease is not the only cause of pain over the heart. Qno- lional tension may temporarily reduce Ihe blood flow through the heart muscle and caust distress. Fear over the possibility of serious heart trouble makes matters worse. The heart and blood vessels are sensitive to most change* which tnke plane in the body. Persons who are tense over-stimulate a portion of the brain which in turn affects the heart. Excessive worry over trivial things, restlessness, and crying on the slightest provocation all indicate tension.
