We Could Use Anti-Red PW's as Propaganda Reply On Cheju Island, just south of Ko- ' rea, are located all the Chinese prisoners taken by the United Nations in the Korean War. Of the total number, 15,000—off in a group by themselves—are the anti- Communists. Whether they should be compelled to return to Communist territory, in event of peace, is the question now holding up the truce talks at Pan- munjom. The North Korean and Chinese Communist leaders say the 15,000 should be forced to return. The United Nations says no. The UN says no because it believes the 15,000 would be returning to almost certain death, due simply to the fact that they are anti-Communist, That feeling certainly seems to be shared by the 15,000, themselves A New York Herald-Tribune correspondent, the first newspaperman to visit Cheju since all the Chinese PCm~s were relocated there, reports the anti- Communists' fear of being returned to their own soil is almost pathological. Although the correspondent -was not flowed to talk to the prisoners themselves, he was told of their attitude by UN personnel running the camp. Ho was told that as indelible proof of their feeling, the anti-Commuiyists point to tattoos on their arms which read, "Anti-Communist, Against Rus. sia." The assumption here would be that the tattooing was done as a securitv measure by the Communist forces. But even if the men tattooed themselves, in the hope of getting favored treatment as prisoners, the damning words would go with them if they were returned to their country. But the UN officers and men at the camp declare there is no doubt but that the anti-Communists are what they say they are and are ready and anxious to go into battle against the Chinese and North Koreans, if the UN will only furnish them with arms. Prisoners have been used in that way in wars past, but not by us. And we certainly are not going to start now- However, there would seem to be some way their unique qualifications could be put to use to help win the propaganda battle for us in the Far East. Here is a large group of men who for the most part have deserted the enemy to come over to our side. Nearly all say they were not captured fighting but surrendered voluntarily. They've lived under the Communists and, as prisoners, they've lived under BLTTHEVILLK (ARK.) COURIER us. From'actual experience they know and could surely explain with considerable conviction to other Orientals why they fled from the Communists and why they don't want to go back. Our fight for men's minds throughout the Far East has by no means yet resulted in a victory for us, one great handicap being that we are Westerners. Another is the destitution anil misery existent among the civilian population of South Korea. Fighting a war and caring adequately for a civilian population is a difficult thing, but nevertheless the civilian suffering in South Korea is not only a hard thing/to explain asvay to other Orientals, but it is a fertile source of Communist propaganda. We could well use the voices of 15,000 anti-Communists who know what they're talking about to tell the people of that part of the world just what anti- communism means. Views of Others Arms Production Limps If Philip Murray doesn't object too much, Uncle 6am would like to be building a few airplanes, some shells, nnd maybe some tanks and guns. The war, you know, and all that! With a by-your-leave acknowledgment. Federal authorities have secured Murray's consent to move some earmarked steel through his picket lines. He Isn't letting any steel be manufactured now, and any security material's in that realm can only be eked out of the dwindling supplies. One must suppose that this nation's war with Communism—as In Korea; and project of arms for security against Communism on a broader front, are secondary to Mr. Murray's quarrel with the steel companies. We trust that the next spasm of complaint, voiced by the administration and the Pentagon, about deficits and setbacks In the production schedule won't fix the blame on congressional failure to appropriate. For the facts are that (1) there still are UNEXPENDED BALANCES in the amount of BILLIONS.In these Pentagon funds; nnd (2) all the money the Treasury could muster will build no military equipment if—o.s in the case of steel-the union barons like Murray choose to block production. —Nashville (Tenn.) Banner -et's Take a Break There will be 'time to pick up the thread of Presidential politics when the hot grip of summer Is broken some weeks hence. In the meantime the .politicians might well leave the American people alone with their thoughts. What has gone by has taxed the emotions and tired the reflexes. What perhaps is needed In this solemn interim, when the nation semes its responsibility, Is a prayer that two good men will at length present the Issues on so rjlgh a plane that the cheap, the petty and the minffifwill enjoy no stature in the good regard of trie-American people. —Asheville citizen The New Marines Marines in Korea who are reported to be naming battle area hills for glamour girls now rather than for characteristics of the battle or the shape of the terrain, must be of the new breed-unfamiliar even with the Corps' lifelong slogans.

Peter Edson's Washington Column — Parties' Anti-Inflation Planks the Voters a Real Choice WASHINGTON -(NEA)- No onsldcration of inflationary :)re-iils is any good at this time it does not take into account •hat the Republican and Democratic parties Propose to do about them. Regardless of who wins in the November election, events are shaping up so that the winner is doing to have to take the initiative in doing Eiison something bout inflation. The present wage nnd price con- ols expire April 30, 1053. The resent excess porfits taxes ex- Ire Juno 30. 1953. And the present icreases in individual income ixes expire Dec. 31, 1553 . That gives the new Congress om four to six months to make > its mind and write new laws r future stabilization policies. There is no indication yet on hat either the Democratic'or Re- ublican presidential candidates •opose to do on this subject. The ily guides so far for an intelll- ent voter in the coming election re the official statements of the •o parties in their platforms .opted at Chicago. But here the 'tor is offered n real choice. The Republican platform has no •-Ctians dealing with stabilization id inflation. Whnt it has to say n the subject is contained in sec- ons headed "Taxation and Monc- ry Policy" nnd "Small Business a Free Economy." The Inst sentence of the latter ction is this: "Wo believe in mibatting Inflation by encourarj- B full production of goods and od and not through a program restrictions." If that may be taken as Ihe cornerstone of Republican stabilization policy, it Is comparable to the action taken by congressional majorities of 104G. The cry then was to the effect of, "Take off all controls, let America produce, and prices will automatically come down." Congress took off controls for everything except rents. What happened is a matter of record. The Index of industrial production rose from a monthly average of no in 1946 to 200 in 1950 nnd 'ao in 1951. The monthly average consumers' price index rose from HO in 1945 to 112 in 1050 and J85 In 1951. Rents, under controls, rose only from a monthly average index number of no in 1D46 to 131 in 1850 and 136 in 1951. The Republican platform of 1952 further endorses this policy of removing restrictions on all sections of the economy. It says: "We shall i-emovc tax abuses nnd injurious price and wage controls. . .We will oppose federal rent controls except in those ureas where the expansion of defense production has been accompanied by critical housing shortages." Under "Taxation and Monetary Policy," the, GOP platform does say: "Further inflation must and can be prevented." The measures recommended for preventing It include these: Reduclion of government expenditures. Freeing Federal Reserve System from White House and Treasury control. Complete revision of federal tax laws nnd reallocation of taxes with state and local governments. While tax recodifici-.tlon has long been needed, the OOP platform docs not say what changes it would make. For the rest, the Republicans blame the Democrats for the present inflation, confisca- tory taxes and devaluation of the dollar "to rob the worker, impoverish the farmer, and reduce the value of savings." Dems Credit 20-Year Policies The Democratic platform for ils part claims that the United States has never had such prosperity This is attributed to its policies over the past 20 years. It lists these policies: • Pay-as-we-go taxation to prevent excess money pressure on scarce goods and services. Direct controls to keep, prices down. Promotion of full employment and reduction of unemployment. For the future, the Democrats make these promises: "We shall strive lo reduce the injury done to the American people. . .by the weakening amendments which the Republicans in Congress have forced on our anti- inflation laws. "We pledge continuance of workable controls so long as the emergency requires them. . .We strongly urge continued federal rent control in critical defense areas and In the many other localities still suffering from a shortage of adequate housing." On tax policy the Democratic platform says: "We oppose a federal general sales tax. We adhere to the principle of ability to pay. We have enacted nn emergency excess profits tax to prevent profiteering from the defense program and have vigorously attacked special tax privileges. . .Justice requires the elimination of tax loopholes which favor special groups. . . . "As rapidly; as defense requirements permit, we favor reducing taxes, especially for people with lower incomes. But we will not imperil our nation's security by reckless promises to reiiuce taxes." r.ouls Haywnrd stars In "Rex Morgan, M.

JORDA.V, SI. D. Written for SEA Service Since about one person in 20 dc*lops what is known as a div.-vtic- tim or "rtiverticulosis" of the Inclines, it is not surprising that nny people write asking lor in-! rrnation on that subject. j Tt should be said at the st.irt that! children rarely develop dtvciticula. Yonng people do not inve them often, hut In the middle and later years of life, they become quite common, diverticutn usually produce no symptoms whatever, ami do not require any special treatment. Now, n diverllculnm Is a pouch cr pocket leading off from a Inrpe cavity or tube Diverting (more than one dlvertlcnlimi) are most common In the colon or lower part of the bowel.

In dtvcrticnlltis the symptom? of Inflammation vary a trocd deal. There may be a single slight attack of acute abdominal pain or several attacks of slight distress. Occasionally, the InfbnmiMion may be so severe as to cause a perforation or hole in the pocket ab- domlnnl cavity and prod'.tcincr peritonitis, abccss formation, or obstruction. Tlie area involved may be sens!-1 ttve to pressure, though of course many other conditions can cause such symptoms. For this reason the diagnosis !s often difficult.

I When severe divcrliculitis bursts through the wall of the bowel or obstructs intestinal action, ,an immediate operation may be necessary. In most ca-srs. however, treatment by diet or medicine Is all that is needed. Most divcrticula are not cause for serious concern, of those which do produce trouble, the majority can be treated by diet and other simple menus.

South fisd already passed at two hearts, and was therefore sure to have some satisfactory holding In hearts. South's only point in bidding the diamonds was to discover whether or not the diamonds were better than the hearts. North was expected to bid three hearts unless he had an excellent fit for diamonds. Unfortunately, North knew nothing about such refinements He had already bid his hearts and he didn't see how he could make a second bid on his miserable hand, if South's diamonds were so strong. North decided, let him play the hand where he evidently wanted to be. The result at three diamonds was very sad indeed. West !ert the JBck of spades, dummy covered with the king, and East won with the ace. East switched to clubs giving- his partner two tricks in that suit. East over-ruffed dumniy on the third round of clubs, cashed the queen ^of spades, and led a third spade. When South ruffed West discarded life singioton heart instead of over-ruffing. Having won his first trick rather ate in life. South desperately led :he king of diamonds in an at:empt to draw trumps. East won with the occ of diamonds and led his last spade. South ruffed again and once more West discarded South now laid down the queen of diamonds and West claimed the rest of the tricks, setting the contract Ei.t! With this particular partner, whose game he knew quite' well South should have bid three hearts nstead of his very "delicate" three diamonds. North would have played the hand at three hearts and would probably have gone down only one trick. If West vent on to four clubs, he would be set.
