French Fear of Germany Can Snag NATO Program A European army with German units participating is not yet a reality. But it hns advanced a significant step doser to that stnge with the formal endorsement of the plan by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization in Lisbon. The idea of a six-nation army that would include Western Germany was born in France. NejrotiHtions looking toward its creation hepan last summer, and proceeded fairly smoothly for several months. Bui then serious snags developed in hoth Germany ami France. In ..Germany, the difficulty is that the Bonn government demands conditions which add up to political equality and greater independence. The Germans, vanquished though they were in World War II, see the paradox in their being asked to contribute to the defense of free Europe without sharing equally in its privileges Then, may be audacity, even arrogance, in a defeated nation's boldly calling for equal status n mere, six and a half years since it fell in the dust. But there is also an inexorable logic in it. How can we convince the Germans that they should be our "partners" in military matters only? As for France, the problem is simply fear of a rearmed Germany. Torn by this fear and the couliter-balancing necessity to have German strength thrown into the scales against communism, the French devised the Pleven plan for a European army. On its face, this appears a f a r- seeing gesture aimed at Ihe ultimate unity of Europe. Rut from the French viewpoint it is primarily a compromise between fear and reality. It. is a way of gaining the German strength for the free nations without exposing France to the dangers of an independent German military force operating under its own general staff. The inherent contradiction in the French attitude lias become increasingly apparent in recent months. The French National Assembly now has approved the European army with German elements, but not without conditions that would gravely slow down the program. Nothing yet done by NATO at Lisbon, nothing yet on the European horizon anywhere indicates an easy solution to these German and French puzzles. Deft and delicate use of the arts of statesmanship will be needed to w i n Germany'* support without mor« than leemi wi«« to offer a nation (till unproved KB a member of the democratic family. By the snme token, much must still be done to outweigh French fears of the German in uniform. There is a feeling in many circles that France will continue to pose new obstacles as present ones are cleared away. The main purpose of French politicians appears to be to put off the hard day of reckoning when Germans actually must be allowed to shoulder guns again. Nevertheless, it is hardly possible that France can now reverse itself and turn away fro ma European army with German representation. As a member of NATO it has given its official stamp to the project. Henceforth the seal thus placed upon the plan by France and the other NATO powers cannot help but serve as R pressure upon them to execute their commitments—to make the army a reality. If this action in Lisbon is indeed to be seen by the world as more than a hollow gesture, the NATO countries most directly concerned must now proceed with promptitude to demolish the French and German barriers standing in the way. The European army plan was conceived in fear. But it cannot be translated into life with so negative a handicap. Having embraced the program, the free nations of NATO must now infuse it with tough substance and endow it with all Ihe high and positive purpose it merits as a contribution toward the unity of Europe. Views of Others One Year at a Time The President has called for a two-year extension of price and wage controls and rei>cal o( the Capehntl, Hcrlong, and Butler-Hope amendments wlilch apply to them, Observers in Congress think he will Bet • one-year extension ot the act as It is. This is a probability, not a certainty. So the request should be examined. Price snd wage controls offer no major defense Rgiiinst Inflation. In foci, such controls can do no more than delay the enemy while the main army—production and fiscal and credit inanage- ment^gets rolling. Th« difficulty Is thnt defense needs for scarce materials and. in general, tor labor, prevent some areas of good civilian production from getting ahead. (U !» volume of goods versus civilian demand that affect.s inflation.) Ard neither fiscal nor credit policies have as yet been applied with Ihe courage nece.wary. Direct controls, or at least the power to Invoke them, should be kept on the statute books, therefore, until more convincing signs appear that inflation Is being checked la'iiits-source. This is not to say the country should settle down to controls. It would seem wise to extend them for but one year, anti then a.-wew the situation again. As for the amendment the president want* repealed. Labor's pressure against wage controls would much .steam, to be sure, were thera no legislation which comes near to giving businesses legal guarantees against profit squeezes. But since price rises are tied by the Capehart and Kerlong amendments to costs and profits In ft pre-1951 base period, the effect has not been so inflationary as was once feared. The fight should be to keep the base period unchanged. The Butler-Hope amendment banning slaughter quotas faces formidable farmer-packer opposition. The whole Inflation problem really bolls down to this: Put at Its best, the nation Is trying to arm and at the same time keep Its civilian economy robust Put at its worst. It is trying to produce enough guns anrt plenty of butler. And Its public policies xeflect the pulling from both sides. —Christian Science Monitor SO THEY SAY Reprieved Truman Sees 'Peace* —Optimism or Fact?

This Is considered sufficient to provide a counter-offensive striking force in case of enemy attack, plus an adequate U. S. air defense. No reserves are provided for. If rj. S. air power is dissipated In other wars, this build-up of air strength will be destroyed. The alternative here is a much bigger U. S. Air Force. In a hurry, at multibillion dollar cost. 4. If U.

What Is responsible for either orm of .seborrhea has not been de- remined. No living parasite or germ has been identified, though there reasons to believe that some kind of Infection may be at least partially at fault. However, seborrhea of either kind commonly starts after the genera! health hns been owered by such things as infection ir fatigue. Anemia, constipation, indigestion, lack of fresh air nnd exercise, and the wearing of stiff and ill- ventilated haU are also believed contribute to the development of seborrhea. All these can be considered as predisposing causes. There Is no easy or quick cure for seborrhea. If some chronic weakening disease is present, it should, of course be treated. Also such conditions as anemia or constipation should be taken care of. Other than such obvious lines of attack, treatment is aimed at improving the genera! health and local treatment of the scalp and involved skin it.self.

Air bases, ports, railroads and other strategic targets could be attacked. The Communists' main production centers would not, however, be. reached by these attacks. These factories are not in Manchuria, nor in Retl China. They are In Russia. It might, therefore, take a bombing attack on the Soviet to destroy Red China's war potential. 5. Finally, there is widespread belief that if any attack is made on Red China. Soviet Russia would automatically be brought into the Korean War as a full-scale participant.
