Pakistan complains that Incite is massing troopg on his country's border. \ India's Prime Minister Nehru ao- knowledges the troop movements, but Bay* they are for defense. He charges ; Pakiatan with "organized preparations for raids and sabotage in Indian territory." Dispatches from New Delhi disclos* that th« major part of India's 400,000- rnan army has been arrayed along the frontier or in other danger zones like Kashmir. Nehru insists India has no Intention of attacking Pakistan, though this force aeems a little large for com- batting mere "raids and sabotage." Americans thousands of miles from tht scene are not qualified to judge who U really threating whom. But they nr« not barred from passing moral judgment on the general Indian-Pakistan dispute. That dispute has centered for a long t(me on the independent princely slate of Kashmir, which both nations wish to absorb. United Nations mediators have recommended that a plebiscite be held to allow the people of Kashmir to vote on where they shall place their allegiance. Pakistan accepts this plan, but hidia does not. Furthermore, India has put its- troops into Kashmir lo keep comwnnd of the situation, and Indian lenders say tl)py will never allow Kashmir to get out of their hands. N'o one can be positive which way (lie mixed Hindu and Moslem population of the Slate would le.-ui. It niijrlit well favor India. Rut, it is just and proper that the issue be settled by a peacfnl vote, not by force. The presence of Indian troops there, plus India's persistent refusal to consider a plebiscite, amounts to violation of the letter and spirit of the United Nations charter. Last winter Nehru projected himself forward as leader in an effort to mediate the Korean war. At that time, he and his UN spokesman, Sir Bengal Ran, uttered many hitler words alx.ut the West's "stubborn reluctance" to permit mediation. He ignored the fact that his proposed settlement terms amounted to rewarding: Communist aggression. All through that period, the Kashmir controvery still raged, and India adamantly refused to accept any solution but i'.sTSwn. The attitude at Xe«- Delhi obviously has not altered one whit. The Indian view seems to be that mediation is for the other fellow. Nehru wants the UN charter to apply to everyone but him. In the light of India's record, men of character in the free world can have scant sympathy for Nehru's pretensions as a "man of peace." And they would hsv. Httte patt«no« with »ny action th»t would lead to an outbreak of war between India and Pakistan. Hypocrisy It a harsh word but It pretty well described India's behavior. World peace can, never be promoted by men who think that the principle of just settlement of disputes should guide all the world but the part they govern. BLYTH15VILLB. (AMC.) COURIER NEWS Echo Answers: 'Who?' Maylm you noticed the other day that a sewer contractor was in Washington testifying before a congressional committee on the underground. Who should know better? Views of Others Permanent Guard Of Peace for U. N. Hungary asked Ihe withdrawal of two American diplomats ami I lite country retaliates by getting rid of R couple of striped-pants Hungarians Priiha persecutes an Associated press correspondent. This sort of tiling Is going on all around the confines of Soviet Influence. War Is not Involved, but war could come of It. Greece and Turkey still eye threats on their borders In the sore spots of Asia. Red-Instigated guerrilla* fomet mnssacre and robbery, All of these things concern the United Nations as a threat to world peace. U. N. does nothing much about them. u. N. must sit back and wait for trouble to break. "Why?" sensibly asks the Commission to study the Organization of I'^acel headed by Clark Eich- elbergcr, as an affiliate of the American Association for the United Nations, Dr. Eichelberger and his colleague! reason that U, N. future IB best •erved If u. N. make* Itself a force Instead of a debating «ncl e ty. So they bob up with the reasonable suggestion that u. N. take thi initiative in warding off trouble Instead of waiting to go on the defenslv* whan trouble comex to It. The General Assembly of U.N. passed t while back, a resolution providing that It can act on i threat to peace If tht Security Council has failed to discharge it» responsibility, u me record ha. shown the Council will fall in view of tht veto power. The Elchelberger group suggests that ttil. resolution can be Implemented by strengthening U.N.'i Peace Observation Commission with authority to function In trouble spots without prior action by either Council or Assembly. "Make thli commission permanent," says' this recommend- atlon. "Lei It station observers In likely trouble «!»•«. with routine reports from any nation having > grievance, wiih Uniformed guards, with mediatory function If authorized by the Assembly or Council, with power to recommend emergency Assembly sessions when needed." You can see what could be done with this machinery. It would operate as a militant spokesman for the whole U.N. against Ihe studied re- calcitrancy of »nj- member, of the Blj four inxloiu to spike effective action. The commission would not havt to wait to be set up. it would be on hand functioning and would eliminate much of the wordy delay that 1m, helped hamstring concerted and effective u. N. action w far. It would have the advantage of continuing trained experience. A permanent Peace Observance Commission of this character should have been jet up In the original charier. There then might have been no Korea. —DALLAS MOKNINd NEWS \learly20 Billion a Year Census Bureau (Igures show that tha number of government employes, federal, state and, local reached In April a new post-war high mark of 6.677.000.

Points to Consider A number of statements are orth noting; I. Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. ojt Vanclenberg's reference to the .S. "shoestring" nirforce. This was In his testimony before the Sene's investigation into General liK-Arthur's firing. 2 Admission by the Air Force This would reduce shore personnel and increase the number of men at .sea. 7. Army's original pre - Korean expansion plan called for one-and- a-half million men in 18 divisions, plus 18 regimental combat teams. Army Chinf of Staff General J. divisions are to come largely from reassignment of the regimental combnt teams and men now In ten training divisions. The additional divisions would all be activated from troops now authorized. 8. President Truman has Just rtiil (o Congress a request lor S6.5 billion for defense bases, In this country and abroad. Air Force want* 17 additional bases, many of them on tht perimeter of Soviet Russia's iron curtain. Army wants 150 million for nine stand-by camps, to be readied for use in case oi all-out mobilization and a bigger draft call. All these projects, however, are included in the S60 million budget estimate for this year. So they represent no new item of ccst. ». Assistant Director of Budget Elmer B. Blasts recently shocked th« S*nat« Finance committee, by- saying that the total government expenditure* in 1053 would be 580 billion to »90 billion, of this, 55.1 billion to $65 billion would be for the military. Peak I« Ahead The catch in these figures is that they include approximately $10 billion for foreign military assistance and for the U. S. atomic energy program. Sc the peak of direct U. s. military expenditures would be $35 billion In 1853, as compared with *40 billion to be spent this year out of- the KO billion authorize budget. For costs and size of the armed forces beyond 1953, nothing has yet been decided. There will probably be considerable changes in units in the next six months. But they will all come within the present three and a half million man armed force ceiling. To raise the armed forces beyond lour million men would require & new act of Congress. So, barring .some new emergency and an all-out war, no vast expansion of u. S. armed forces Is considered likely before 155.1.

West opened the queen nf spadrp and South was facod with the task of playuiB Ihe type of hand in which there is no clear-cut line of play This time he reiurned a spade and South won with the ace.

When south then led his last spade West had only three trumps left, He had to ruf[.uselessly as dummy ruffed with the king of clubs.
