At' long last, and high time too, Mi' organization- in the western world cornea forth with a plan for peace to counter 'the one being peddled by the Communists. • ', • The organization is a new one called the World Veterans Federation. When founded less than two years ago it had a membership of 8 million in six different nations. Today its member- ship.totals more than 15 million in 16 nn- i tions.'plus the Intel-national Confederation, of Ex-prisoners of War. Member organizations in (his country are AMVETS, the Disabled American .-Veterans, the American Veterans Committee, and the Blinded Veterans Association. The program of the world organization is two-fold—peace with freedom, as compared to the peace with tyranny offered by the Communists, and the rehabilitation of disabled veterans. The Federation feels that its big strength for peace lies in the fact that its members all know first hand what war is like, and also that most of its key members in various countries ars war heroes whose voices will be listened to. Federation oficials emphasize it is by no means a peace-at-any-price movement, but rather peace with freedom, and only that way. The organization has a consultative voice in the United Nations and one of its principal aims is to strengthen the U.\ by giving the millions of Toleration members a voice in U.N proceedings. Harold Russell, the amputee veteran who is past national commander of AMVETS, represents the United States on the Federation's nine-member \vntc.h- d.og commission for preserving peace. One function of the commission is to go personally (o world trouble areas and report back to the United Nations and to the Federation of the situation as war veterans tin-encumbered by the policies and red tape of an official government fact-finding body. Within the United Nations the Federation is pushing for a world-development authority. The purpose of the authority would be to recommend measures for relieving poverty in various parts of the world as a step towards relieving the discontent and strife which can lead to war Summing up Federation peace aims, one of its officials says, "We want to attract those millions of people throughout the world who sincerely want peace but who, unable to find another peace ' banner^to rally under, have been trap's ped by what the Communisti are offering." An aim such as that seems commendable enough in itself. But when combined with an active and going program of concrete aid to the world's war wounded, it gains even more strength. The United States branch of the Federation is out to raise ?1 million this year for its share of the work. Ehd of Royal Grisis We can all breath a little freer today. The Riviera crisis has been eased. This started when word spread along the Cote d'Azure Hint the Duke of Windsor was off his feed, possibly had an ulcer and might even have to go on the wagon- Press wires carried these rumors with the speed of light. The Duke's reported gastronomic disorders for a few minutes crowded out the peace negotiations at Panmunjom, the Schuman plan inauguration at Luxembourg and the American political news. Then cautious ' editors dispatched queries to their correspondents covering the Duke's important activities. Back with the same speed of light came the heartening news: the Duke arose, went at once to the bar for his customary whiskey and soda and then ate a hearty breakfast. End of crisis. Views of Others An Issue Fades Away Some Negro leaders have endorsed the Eisenhower-Nixon ticket nnd some have assailed it on the civil rights Issue; some have announced (heir decision to stick with the Democrats and somn have rapped them loo. All o! this leads (o the conclusion that civil rights no longer is much of nn Issue, certainly nowhere near as vital as an issue as It in 19-18. Already It has been shown that both the Republican and the Dc-raocratic planks can be accepted by both the proponents and the opponents of civil rights legislation. The candidates themselves, both Oen. Eisenhower and Gov. Stevenson, hare Indicated that thr-y would place chlel emphasis on slate and local hnndlin? of the problem - certainly that they are no burning reformers. In any event It is as sure as anything can he lhat no compulsory FEPC bill is Eoing to be passed In the coming four ypars.

SO THEY SAY AtTOTST Awaiting the flection" Winds Scouts Don't Yell'Smear' When It is revealed that Communists hive infiltrated or attempted to Infiltrate certain groups such, for example, as school and church groups, such groups frequently adopt a bellicose attitude that they are being persecuted and affronted by the charges. Such an altitude, of course, only helps the Communist fifth columnists, for It seeks to discourage constructive elforls to weed out any infiltration. The Boy Scouts of America, however, showed sn excellent, attitude when it was revealed by senate. Investigators of the Internal Security sub' committee that Heds have attempted to infiltrate the Boy Scout movement. Dr. Arthur A. Bchuck, chief scout executive, confirmed the report, and revealed that the Boy Scout organization has been put on its guard- and considers Iteelf, free of the attempted infiltrators. Dr. Echuck did not deny the testimony that Reds had attempted Infiltration. He did not scream "smear," "guilt by association" or any of the other familiar expressions frequently used by groups seeking to deny evidence of Communist infiltration attempts. Dr. Schllck fnccd" the facts, nnd In doing so reassured the people ol America. There Is no disgrace Irrjbrjng the (argot of Communist Infiltration, The-idisRrncc comes from failure to react In defense, of America ngalvtst the Communist Infiltrators. —Chattanooga News-Free Press. Peter Edson's Washington Column — FTC Oil Case May Disrupt US. Foreign Policy in Middle East WASHINGTON —(NEA)— The U. S, government's foreign policy and its inlernatlonal defense policy face serious embarrassment as a result of Federal Trade Commission and Department ol Jus- :lce investigations Into an alleged world oil cartel, or monopolistic agreement. Center of focus in this case Is Ibe Middle East. This area n o w known as Iran, r lraq and Saudi Arabia today contains t h e world's largest proved oil reserves. H Is nlso Teltr Fdwn °" n "' thf! worlcl ' s son most sensitive po- lilical spots. This nrca is important lo the uuiled States because nil the oil produced here to supply non-Communist Europe nnd Asia relievos \v that much the demand for pe- lolcum products of the western hemisphere. The two rnnjor Ktmipnsn producers in this area are Anclo-Irani- an Oil nnd Royal Dulch shell. Principal American companies in this area now include Standard Oil of New Jersey, Soccmy.Vacu. urn, Arabian-American (which Is jointly owned by Tcxns Companv Standard Oil n [ California and Standard of New Jersey). Gull Oil I which shares a concession with Antrlo-Iranian) and Bahrein Petroleum. These are the companies' which are now on the Krc-Justice Department grill. When the government of Iran first seized the Anglo-Iranian proo- orties with their world's largest refinery at Abadan. on the Per- sian Gulf, it completely disruoled the Old World's, petroleum supplies. The shortages could be made up only from the western hemisphere. Out Companies Together To accomplish this the Petroleum Administration for Defense; operating under Secretary of the Interior Oscar Chapman, organized a voluntary agreement amonz all u. S. oil companies to work together. The purpose ol the voluntarv agreement was to permit the oU companies to give :he government information on all oil stocks— where, they were and how much they amounted lo, week by week. Then, lo supplement the voluntary agreement what was known' as "Plan, ot Action No. 1" was put into effect by PAD—the Petroleum Administration for Defense. The Finn of Action permitted the. oil companies to pool their resources, pool Iheir tankers exchange carpows of oil and petroleum products and fill each others' orders, all over (he world. This was done to relieve the shortage caused by the loss of Iranian production, It made the American "cartel" all (he more effective. But this again was done wilh Department of Justice approval, though it was contrary to the nnti-trust laws. H was slipulaiecl, however, lhal! this Plan ol Action was lo be limited only lo the, Iranian crisis. Last month it n-ns decided this crisis was ended, plan of Action No. I was Iherelore dissolved. The oil I companies were turned loose to handle Iheir world trade as full I competitors under the free enter-1 prise system and the usual restrictions of the anti-trust laws. Agreement Felt Essential The original voluntary Agreement remains in effect, however Department of state, Department of Defense, Department of Interior and its Petroleum Administration all consider the voluntary agreement essential. II furnishes them K'iUi complete intelligence on world oil stocks and movements. It helps the Department of Defense plan its movements of military gas and oil to Korea and Europe. II. is essential in planning to meet crises like the recent U s oil industry strike. And it helps Slale Department in its touchy Middle-Eastern diplomatic negotiations. To keep consistent with ils Investigation, Department of Justice will move soon to compel PAD to break up i| s voluntary agreement with the oil companies. And Ihe U. S. foreign oil policy may thereby be thrown into a tailspin. There Is a further angle to this mpliralpd inlernational oil cartel case from the Department of Justice point of view. This econ- nomic Cooperation Administration and Mutual Security Administration claim of 350 million for alleged over-charges by the International oil companies. ECA and MSA claim they were over-charged that much In furnishing SI.2 billion worth of petroleum products to European countries under the American aid programs over the last four years. This claim is now being pressed bv Department of Justice. The amount of claims for refund to the government may eventually grow to 5100 million. Sunday School Lesson -" T "™ Gllroj, D.

South was able to .win Ihe trump return and lead the nine of dia- nonds through West. Even though IVest played a low diamond without hesitation, he couldn't get away with it. South let Ihe nine of diamonds ride and won the trick vith it. It was now- easy lo ruff n diamond in dummy, discard a spade on the ace nf hearts, and lead a spade towards the king. South was =ure to make his kine ol spades, and could regain the lead in time o draw the last trump, and thus cash the last diamond. West should have had the courage lo play low on the second ound of diamonds instead of coning up with the queen. If .East could not win the trio*, nolhimr ould be done to defeat the con- rsct. Actually, East would have won vi(h the Jack of diamonds and voulri have returned a second rump. Now dummy would have only one trump to take care ot two losing diamonds. Hence the defense would make a second diamond trick in addition to the ace of spades. 15 Years Ago In Blytheville — Jack Johnson, James Barnes, Dent Browne, Tommy Tinker, C O Ellis,- Thomas Seay.
