Fat chance! UN Vote is Termed Road-Block for Reds . Americans find it hard to get steamed up.over issues like what is lo happen to Italy's prewar colonies in Northern Africa. But there's a good reason why they ought to care: the world's colonial areas today are prize breeding spots for communism. The First World War generated a great upsurge in nationalist sentiment among subject peoples in Europe and elsewhere. New nations were carved out. It i s now abundantly clear that World War II unleashed a similar powerful drive toward self-determination among colonial peoples. India's independence, the newly conceived JUnited States of Indonesia, the end of the British mandate in Palestine, these are milestones in that drive. There is no question the Arab populations of Libya, Entreat and Italian Somaliland, Italy's African colonies, have felt the contagion of this movement for independence. The existence of the United Nations has been a compelling factor in cementing bonds between colonial peoples in widely scattered areas. Countries which have racial or religious ties with colonial groups have a real voice in the world forum for the first time. They have made themselves heard. Moscow correctly gauged the social and political ferment stirred by the war. It has stepped up Communist agitation among colonial peoples, hoping to warp their intense feelings to Russia's purposes of world domination. Nowhere has the Soviet Union succeeded. But the scale of Communist activity remains a constant threat, a steady prod to the western nations to deal fairly and intelligently with the populations now praising for freedom. Viewed against this backdrop, the UN's compromise solution on the Italian colonies probably will satisfy most fair-minded Americans. The UN General Assembly approved a resolution providing independence for Libya by Jan. 1, 1952; independence for Somaliland after 10 years under Italian trusteeship, and a decision on Eritrea in the 1950 session of the assembly. Both in area and population, Libya is by all odds the most important of the three. Within its borders is the big city of Tripoli. Hence it appears a fortunate decision that independence should have been decreed earliest for that colony. Normally the actions of the General Assembly are not binding but merely have the force of recommendations. This particular decision is final, however, because the United States, Uritain, France and Kussia promised in the Italian peace treaty to accept the assembly's determination of Ihe problem. The four powers were unable to agree among themselves. Kussia was one of nine nations which abstained from voting on the decisive resolution. Some UN delegates foresaw that the Soviet Union would not accept the assmbly action. But such an attitude could have no practical effect toward preventing execution of the decisions, for the colonies currently are being administered by Britain and Franco. Russia's counter-proposals called for immediate independence of Libya and freedom for Somaliland and Eritrea within five years. They were never voted on by the assembly. It is likely that the agreed solution will go a long way toward eliminating Italian colonies as fertile spawning grounds for the enemies of the free world. Views of Others Cotton Goes West Arid and semi-arid areas ol the West are pushing forward -in [he production of cotton. The Department of Agriculture has estimated Hint this year California, Arizona and New Mexico will produce more than 13 per cent ol the nation's cotton as compared to 2.2 per cent. In \W>. One ol (he reasons for this shift is that Western farmers, by the use of modern machinery and new Icchnhiues, have been able to get higher yields at a lower cost. While the average small farmer in the Southeast is making from five to to ten bates a year, a comparable fanner In West Texas may he making Irom 100 to 200 bales at one-fourth the per bnle cost. At one lime the Irrigation-grown cotton of the West did not bring so good prices as the rain-grown liber ol the South. But an aggressive program of research during the past 10 years has enabled Western states to Improve the quality of their product. Although the land where cotton was king has Increased its yield in tlie last 15 years by soil conservation methods, the use of fertilizers and more scientific cultivation It Is more dependent, than the West on hand labor. A New York 'limes article, which reports the Increase of cotton growing in the West, points out that thousands of small farmers in the South are each year abandoning the growing of cotton and some large- scale operators are turning to the planting ot oilier crops and the raising of livestock. Much land that formerly was plained In cotton Is growing pine trees for use as pulp wood and saw timber. Cotton may be getting a new kingdom In the West, but farmers of that area may be getting a new ruler. Machinery and modern methods may be able io handle a great deal of cotton. But there Is a limit to how much the land can take, as the South had reason lo find, and there Is also a limit on the market. The sound and logical course for the South Is to grow cotton on the land best adapted to It and use other lands for pasture and livestock and trees whose wood is in demand. —ARKAiNSAS GAZETTE Political Guessing Since the American people get so much fun out of political guessing games, it Is not surprising that the professional prophets are already busy with 1950 and even 1S52. A few developments have given them something to play with—shifts j n both national committee heads, President Truman's militant Labor Day speeches, the labor drive against Senator Tart, and the Dulles-Lehman contest In New York. Some prognosticates profess to see a clear division shaping up between the major parties over "statism." others see the Democrats trying to patent the Truman formula for success in law —a farmer-labor alliance. Others expect .New- York's Senate race lo fix a pattern of issues for 1952. This Is an Inexpensive kind ot speculation. Many folks enjoy it and the prophets make a living. But it may be well to recognize that most of it is plain or fancy gucstimatlng. For so very many upsetting tilings can happen before 1852 or even before November, 10SO. How big a part would domestic issues play should the Stalin-Tito tangle break out In hostilities? What would be the political effect if a succeM of big strikes started Ihe recession receding again? Considering the crosscurrents and the social, racial and religious factors in the Dulles-Lehman contest who but partisans will find a clear policy mandate In it? And what prophet or politician will feel safe until General Eisenhower takes an oath not to run in 1952?

Normally, there are about I 5, 000,000 of these cells In each cubic millimeter of blood. (There are more than 16,000 cubic millimeters in a cubic Inch.) These cells contain a red coloring matter— hemoglobin— which carries oxygen to the tissues and which is necessary for life. When there are loo few reel blond (cells or not enough hemoglobin the condition Is called "anemia." When a person loses more blond than the system can replace, anemia develops.

These papers were seized by the FBI when Judy was arrested with the Russian UN engineer Valentin A. Oubichev, in New York last March. The first trial fo Judy Coplon In Washington last summer, which resulted in her conviction on chiv- ges of espionage, revealed what may be regarded as the new defense technique in cases dealing with alleged Communist activities. It was an effort by Judy's attorney, Archibald Palmer, to make the prosecution disclose in public all the secret Information on Communist spying in its possession. This experience in the first Cop- Ion trial put government attorneys on guard. That is why they opposed Palmer's second attempt to make the government give back all the papers found in Judy's purse. Judge Sylvester Ryan in New York has now rilled In the prosecution's favor, so the government gets to keep its secrets, for the time being at least. First Trial Disclosed Evidence In the first Coplon trial, attorney Palmer obtained rulings from Judge Albert L. Reeves which put in evidence 22 of the 34 abstracts, or secret data slips found in Judy's purse. U. S. attorneys and the FBI have refused to discuss these slips. which the FBI had obtained on spy activities against the united states b y foreign embassy officials I n Washington. The government was successful in keeping the other 12 data slips secret. Attorney Palmer argued that if part were introduced in evidence all should be introduced. U. S. attorneys argued that their disclosure would endanger national security by revealing the secret sources of government anti-espionage information. Judge Reeves declared that it the government did not want such matters introduced In evidence, it should not be in court. But in leaning over backward to give Judy Coplon a fair trial, the judge may unwittingly have played into the hands of the communists by revealing to them what the government knew about their activities. In the matter of another top secret report brought into the first Coplon trial room and shown under seal, though not introduced in evidence. Judge Reeves did not force disclosure of contents. If ho had ordered it opened, the government might have been forced to drop its charges, preferring to lose iis case against Judy Coplon rather than make public its secret information. It is of course possible that Attorney Palmer's intent may have been to force the government's hand this far, just to get. the have been this effort to get anti- espionage inforniaiion that would permit the Communists to cover up their exposed tracks. Incident Supports Govcrm.irnl's Siili One other incident supports this belief. In Miss Coplon's first trial, she admitted that she had worked on government emplove loyalty tests. She declared that she protested against the standards by which organizations were put on'the attorney general's list of subversive "froms." She said the these standards wore "revullinif" and that they "violated all the principles of civil liberties." .The catch in these statements is that (he standards for classifying any organization us a Communist front have never been made public Organizations which have been up on (he list naturally desire information about these standnrds so they can reorganize under conditions that would keep them off the list. If the government could have been forced to disclose tho-se standards by being forced to introduce them as evidence in the f'nplon trial, that would h;uc yiven the front organizations just ihe information they wanted. Raymond B. whcarty of the Department of Justice Criminal Division has declared that this apparent effort to force the government to make public ail its secret tiata on subversive activities in America must be closely watched and ures, including the use of Iron preparations, iron being an important part of hemoglobin. Often the cause can be remedied and the anemia is then likely to clear up. If it comes from a poor diet giving an adequate diet alone is generally enough. COMES TO WO.ME.V One kind of anemia conies particularly, but not exclusively, in women between .10 and 50 years of age. The cause of this anemia is a deficiency of iron due to several things, probably including defective diet nnd poor absorption due to disturbance of the stomach and Intestines. This causes a feeling of weakness, shortness of breath, nervous disturbacnes. dry hair, sore tongue nnd paleness. Failure of the organs which make the blood may produce anemia. This difficulty lies principally In the bone marrow and is similar to the form of anemia which comes Irom certain poisons. Note: Dr. Jordan is unable to answer individual questions from renders. However, each day he will answer one of the most frequently asked questions in Ins column. (II'KSTION: I have heard that the heavier an expectant mother is, the more difficult the delivery.

Spiritualism has long had a considerable following In England, and j was living Ihere at the time when its great leader was the late Sir Arthur Con an Doyle, famous creator of Sherlock Holmes. I got to know Sir Arthur verv well and we had long conversation'! about the highly controversial subject of the spirit world. I used to visit him In his sniritiinlist boo)--shop, close by Abli~ 15 Years Ago In Slviheville — The tuition for the High School .students ha.s Ijccn reduced from , where one could find all sorts uf literature relating to snirlts, Irted by Disbelievers Doyle was deeply grieved by thn widespread expressions of disbelief in spiritualism. One day when we were discussing this he called my attention to a life-size head-and- shoulders photo of himself, with the face of a young man looking over his shoulder. He said that was a spirit picture of a dead son who, as T recall it. had been killed In' the first world war. Sir Arthur told me he personally bought the plate on which that picture was taken. He said he himself put It in the camera and. after ft friend had snapped It. Sir Arthur himself removed the plate nnd developed it. No other hand had touched it before the print was made. With tears in his eyes he exclaimed: "How can anyone look 'at that picture and not. believe?" ^ Connn Doyle knew the late Hoi* dinl very well and told me that the magician performed his amazing feats through spiritualism. He said Houdlnl was able to dematerlalize himself (take on spirit form) and that it was in this manner he escaped from locked steel trunks and from prison cells. Listens Willi Interest Apropos of materialization of spirits. Sir Arthur told me he had had exnerience with this phenomenon. He cited the case of an evil spirit which used to materialize itself In a house In Southern England. He said one night when a spiritualist meeting was being held In the house this spirit materialized itsell and badly manhandled one of the group.
