Needed to Spur Defense Dulles Plan May Be Spark When we embarked on our present Jfifenge program, we knew we were taking on one of the toughest assignments la American history. Never before had the people been Mked to support in peacetime such colos- Ml military preparations both for them- •elYw and their friends abroad. It can't really be held a surprise that the ta»k is going slowly. Here there i» no disposition to ask for more than the wildest curtailment of civilian life. In Europe, the politicians, remembering the nearnes* of other wars, can't bring th»ms»lve« to demand heavy sacrifices from their peoples so soon again. People (Jon't work to * pitch easily in peace. If they get there, they won't •tay long. The disheartening stream of reports from Europe in recent weeks is indication how tough it is to get action when the peril is not great and immediate. The West is talking a good defense, but not doing much. Isn't it time to take a serious view of this dilemma? Does it mean that we aren't going to get a really adequate defense unless war is at hand? Obviously this is a risk we can't afford. Selfish American interest, if nothing more, demands that we take genuinely effective measures to protect the Atlantic community of nations. But what other course is open to us? John Foster Dulles suggested one hot long ago. He proposed we stop trying to build a defense force of such size that each and every free land wilhin our orbit may feel independently secure. He suggested that instead we create what he termed "community punishing power," a large central striking force to be held at convenient places for dispatch to any and every spot where aggression might threaten. Dulles is convinced this mobile power would pack so much weight in Soviet calculations that it would be as grcr.l k deterrent as a border bristling with armor. And, theoretically at least, this should be more economical than trying to put each country into condition to repel the invader itself, just as it is cheaper to maintain a central police force than to post guards at every shop and store in the city. Beyond all doubt we must find a way out of this period of backing and filling. We've got to make up our minds what kind of defense we need to be safe and what kind of defense program people will actually support in peacetime. If these are not the same thing, then some sort of workable compromise is imperative to assure us minimum security. The Dulles proposal has undeniable appeal in this situation. And it might Fighting Men in Korea Vitally Need Your Blood Many things have been said about the war in Korea. A useless war, a waste of lives and money, some called it. To men who see it as the product of Administration blunder, it has been "Truman's war." On the other side, statesmen around the world have hailed it as the first real banding together of free nations to quell aggression at its onset. Many find it an effective warning to Russia not to ven- utre forth on large missions of conquest. But however you look at it, one thing is plain: Men die in this war just as in any other. Most of these deaths are unavoidable; they are the price of violent conflict. All of us have the responsibility of seeing that none is needless. What have we to do with death on the battlefield? Ninety-eight out of every 100 men wounded in Korea are saved. Most of the mare kept alive because they get blood plasma at the front lines and then whole blood at rear hospitals. Never before in the history of American wars have so many wounded been saved. But to perform this miracle of mercy has required a most extravagant use of blood supplies. And at this moment reserves available to the armed forces are virtually exhausted. Worse still, donations are lagging far behind minimum needs. If we do not swiftly make up the tragic lack, the time goon will come when men will die on the battlefield for want of blood that could save them.

Once pliable Persia, now intransigent Iran ,1s using world oil demand ns.-.its own equalizer between Mr, Big and Mr. UltljsTfSo much is evident In the differences expressed -by petroleum lender- •rshlp In this country over technical aid to Iran in oil production if the British stand pat on refusal to co-operate In their own victimization. On the highest plane of International mornls, only one course is open to any country. In expropriating Ihe Anglo-Perian (British owned) oil fields Iran is acting In hlgh-handert manner. Is unilaterally breaching a contract and refusing to accept an unbiased court as mediator even In the fact of its own commitment lo do s'o. Time .was when this would have been settled easily by a British expeditionary force. Even under present conditions, Britain Is capable of victory by force, other things being equal, The other thing that Is not equal is the Soviet. The threat of Russian Intervention Is Iran's derringer, plus the dire need of every army for oil. But Iran can not operate its own oil fields, can not alford to lose their lush revenue. That's where American oil conies in. Admittedly it would be highly unmoral to prejudice the British cai-e by helping exploit the expropriated oil. But that faction of the American petroleum Industry which says that. If we do not, the Russians will. Is also exactly rlcht. As the Iran Government has bren forced into' its present position by a terroristic minority Communist group, the presumption Is strong that Ihe whole thini; hns been schemed in Moscow.

MAST ARE STILL HOMELESS By no stretch of the imagination does this mean that-the problem fo displaced persons has been completely solved, says John W. Gibson, chairman of the U. S. Displaced Persons CkjmrrLssion. It docs mean that the PMropean victims of World War II will have been fairly well disposed of. Over a million Worlii War n DP's have been resettled in other countries, a third of them in the United States. There will stil Ire- main in Western Europe an estimated 115,000 World War II DP'S for whom new homes have not htrn found, or who .ire unacceptable as Immigrants to other countries. They will remain the problem of the countries in which they now have temporary residence—many in DP camps.

A correspondent In a popular magazine recently raised the question: how in years reckoned from the birth of Christ that birth could be given as having occurred in B. C. *, making a man to be born four years before his birth? The answer, of course, is in the errors and miscalculations in the reckoning of ihe calendar years a rather complicated matter II was easier to redale the birth of Christ ns B. C. 4, than to adjust all the years backwards to that corrected date .now generally believed to be the time et whicl Christ was actunjly born. To me it is amazing and perhaps in the providence of God that Ihe temporal and external aspects of the life of Jesus should be in so much obscurity and un certainty, while the eternal, snir itual aspects of that Life are re vealed in such simplicity, claritj and unquestionable certainty bj the account of the life and teach ing or Jesus in the New Testamen Gospels. Is U not in Itrelf a sugeestior that our faith, our emphasis, an the religion of our daily live should be in the realm of sue! certainties in following the of life that Jesus enjoined and ex emplified? I find it equally amazing that s many people should prefer to pu their religion in matters that i their very nature are speculativ and uncertain, rather than in plai following of the Master throue hem In Western Germany and Austria alone. This is an area about the size of Indiana, Illinois and Iowa, which now have a population of around 14 million -people. • But in Germany and Auslrrla there are 51 milion native inhabitants, plus the 10 million expellees. Every sixth person Is therefore a victim of communist, aggression. That gives some measure of the problem Germany and Austria now have. EXPEU.KES GROW IN NUMBER The numer of expellees is constantly growing. Several thousand a month crass from Bast Germany into free West Germany. From Ihe Russian satellite countries — from Poland and Czechoslovakia, to Ihe Balkans, another 1000 to 1300 a month manage to escape. They add to Ihe unemployment 'and relief problems in Germany.

Inevitably, to any though ful person, it tends to concentra reflection upon all that Jesus wa and said, and did. It brings us back, or it. ought to, to the vivid pages of the New Testament with its Gospel story. FOR ALL THIS, I have some un- entified members of a House ex- utive expenditures subcommittee thank.

It was a valif criticism, though actually the Resurrection story is a .succeeding, ur continuing part, But it is all part o'f the story of Jesus, and our celebration of His birth can mean little unless it brings us into full realization of the life, death, and Resurrection of the One whose birth we celebrate, It is in this that we find the best preparation and inspiration for the New Year.
