Dangerous Shortcuts The United Nations Charier assigns to the Security Council "primary responsibility for the maintenance of international peace and security." That primary responsibility certainly includes control of the use of fissionahle atomic material. Yet the United States and Britain are being forced to consider a plan thai would separate that responsibility from the Council. Both governments are reported to be considering proposals for putting inspection, control and punishment of violators under an independent atomic development authority The reason, of course, is Russia's persistent refusal to waive the veto power of the Council's permanent members over any Council action against violators of an atomic control agreement. . Neither of the two plans has been formally announced. But the American proposal is said to give the independent agency the power to act only in serious violations, and to permit individual nations to declare war the violator. The British outline would make an independent agency" responsible for all atomic control, but would compel all governments to act together in any punishment of the violator. It might be argued that it is results rather than method Unit count, ;uul that anything, which might free thu -world from a fear of atomic warfare is welcome. But there are dangers in these two proposals that might mako the acceptable only an a last resort. The American idea of moving a cli.v put out of the Council only at the approach of a crisis seems to us to Ue better than the British alternative. |, This at least would keep much of the discussion within the UN, which, after all, was organized to keep the peace. On the other hand, the American plan for separate declarations of war is ?i . questionable solution. There is a clause in the Chartur, to be sure, which makes this possili'<!. Article 51 states that" the Charter shall not impair "the inherent right of individual or- collective self-defense if nn armed attack occurs against a member." • But this is the old-fashioned method that turns its back on (he purpose of the UN and the lessons of two world wars. It would not .-permit any move of defense until after the atomic attack. And even if the self-defense clause wore broadened by rewriting, a small nalion (lirwitened by a powerful one would probably hesitate to make a lone move without complete assurance of united support. Basically, these two plans are only a subterfuge. Certainly the American and Brilish governments know it, and as certainly ihcy must bo con.sklerinff tlu; proposals with reluctance, for the idea of an independent atomic agency is only a sort of legalistic maneuver where no real lo#n]if.y exists. There is lillle likelihood that Russia, if she does not like any vcloless function of the Security Council, would like a vetolcss independent authority any better. It is extremely doubtful that Russia would be a member of such an authority. And an independent atomic agency without Russia might lead lo a United Nations without Russia. Perhaps llu: Soviet government will find more lo object to in (he new proposals than in the Banich plan, at which il has balked so long, and hcncu be more willing to retreat from its original stand. In any event, the new Aujrlo-Amuricaii shortcuts appear from bore to be about us (horny as thy highway which they would abandon.

Jl v.-as just that she felt an- ijtagonislic toward all the Harnil- tlons ar^d Cavendishes of the town. : : "Could I bring the note out? 1 jjwanl to explain about last night." "Yes, I guess so." "About eight?" (j Parker Hamilton was taller lhan jjthe had remembered. Of course ;ii,ned been too e.xciled last night ;lo pay much attention lo him. His brown eyes were pleasant and :lnere was a kind look to his firm ; ; mouth. . , He stood at the screen door, as r.embarrassed as she. Papa took his jtoipe out of his mouth and frowned Mrpm beneath beellc'brows. Mama .(stopped her rocking, her fat face _ sullen, her lips'drawn into a thin • line of disapproval. j, Cassie introduced him. f His face reddened as he stood I there In the uncomfortable silence |And finally he said, ''I thoughl Ernsybe you'd like lo go tor a drive £-2-50 I could explain." : * "All right," Cassie said. "See ithat Sid docs the dishes," she told „ .- „ waited until they hac |d«ven away from the house, be Iff* " e *-'•'* hcr the note fo -eni. It was in a small envelope >f thick vellum. "The Cavendish family were up asl night when I took Lon home," 10 explained. He grimaced. -They finally pumped the story out of is. They high-pressured Lon into promising ho wouldn't see I eni igain until Christmas." "They didn't need to worry ibout Lcni making D f,, ss . Nor ibmil our letting Leni marry him. Why she's still in high school!" Csssie said bitterly. "And anyway le isn't the sort we want Leni to nari-y." ''She's awfully pretty," Parker offered. * * c QASSIE was silent. Her hands were nervously creasing the ;dges of the envelope he had given IT " Bl i, r ~y ou ' r e even preltier." He reddened again, as he had back on the Fletcher front porch. "I'm horribly sorry about Uie whole • hmg, and I'm especially sorr.y we had to meet under such unpleasant circumstances." "It's nil right," Casste said "Everything's okay. Now If you'll Just drive me home—or I can get out here. I wanted to stop at the drugstore anyway." "You don't dislike me, do you on account of what happened?" He glanced at her as ho swung the car around a corner and across the creek bridge. Here was where Mike had asked her to marry him-only ycstcrdav. Was it only yesterday? Her hea'rt Plunged, remembering. Mike was probably gone by now, on that six o clock tram. Mike. Oh Mike! v n «-l ' P, articu l-->rly dislike you. Why should I?" she turned her brown eyes toward his "Then why do you acV so— hostile?" He pulled the car tT stop at the tiny corner drugstore I wasri t aware of being hostile I'm worrlio. I have troubles If you were In my shoes you wouldn't be . afl° bl « either. And anyway what business is it of yours?" "Well," he spread his hands out lelplessly, "I guess it isn't. Only I hate to see you so upset r. ically think Letii will get. over Ihlnlcing about Lon, eventually, if lliafs what you're worried about." "II doesn't interest me, what you Hunk!" Cassie said. She opened the car door and got out, and started across Ihe walk. "Thanks tor bringing Uie nolc," she said. She didn't go iulo Ihe store after all, but started loward home. * * * BLOWING her steps as she look ^ the shortcut across the commons and across the footbridge, over the creek, she began to clrcclne up out of hcr memory all the things she'd ever heard or read about Parker Hamilton. His father was president of the bank, she knew thai, and Ihe Ham- lltons owned Ihe old Machine Works. They had plenty of money and Parker was the only child His mother was dead. Parker, she recalled, had been married once and divorced. He'd been in service, too, righl after Pearl Harbor in the iSavy, and wounded, and then mustered oul because of Ihe injury. She shrugged. Her hand felt ngnm the crisp envelope of Lou's note in her pocket. Oh well, what if she had been beastly, she'd never see Parker Hamilton anain so what did it matter? ° ' Leni was up when Cassie trot home. She sat at the kitchen table, caling a bowl of the chili Mama had saved for her. Her eyes were red-rimmed, her facc*blolchy and swollen. She looked somehow older than 17. Hcr hnir, an uncombed tangle was lied with a pink ribbon and she was wearing the new pink housecoat Cassie had gotten for Christmas and never worn. Mama hovered at the 5 ink, drying the dishes for Sid. "I let Leni put on your new housecoat, because I thought it would make her feel better CT;- sie." u. ' Leni, the sullenness deepening on her face, didn't look up. Cassic handed her the envelope and In an instant she slid from the chair and flew fo the bedroom, tearing the note open as she went. <To Be Continued) Right Down His Alley FRIDAY,'JANUARY 81, 1947 IN HOLLYWOOD i WASHINGTON COLUMN HV I'ETKIt KDHON NBA U'ashirif-tun Curri'spoiulent WASHINGTON.

While Clark Gable was on a prewar South American vacation, his plane made a forced landing in a little God-forsaken seaport town. He was met at the airport by the local theater manager, who insisted that Clark make a personal appearance on his stage for the benefit of the natives. "But I'm on a vacation." protested Clark. "And besides, those natives don't give a darn aboxit movie stars. They've probably never seen one." "Oh, yes, they have," said the theater man. "All (he stars wlio visit here make personal appearances for me." Then lie blushed a little ami said, "Well, one did. Hi' was here for a ilay once, an Ills yacht." "Who?" asked Clark. Incredulous of the remoteness of the place, far from the main ship, rail and plane routes. The Ilieater manager pulled a photograph from his pocket and said. "Look!" Clark looked. He saw a picture of the theater manager standing beside a shirtless man in a pea jacket, dirty wliitc shorts and a heavy beard. "I don't recognize him in that beard," .said Clark. "My audience did," said the theater man, reverently. "His name was John Marrymore." Former Official HORIZONTAL 1,5 Pictured former U.
