NATO's Record Warns Reds: Allies Mean Business The career of NATO has been beset by differences among the Western nations, by setbacks, downward revisions of goals, confusions and dire predictions of final failure. But despite all, the organization was effectively put in being and latest reports indicate it is not far from achieving the reasonable goals set for it last . winter at Lisbon. U. S. officials at the Pentagon say the objective of 4000 combat-ready aircraft by Dec. 31 will be missed by only five or six per cent. The aim of 50 land divisions, 25 fit for combat and 25 in reserve, will be "comfortably close" to fulfillment. By this Pentagon men mean the 25 combat-ready units will be fully manned and equipped and the 25 reserve units will be wall on the way. These figures are somewhat tentative. The complete and exact state of readiness achieved this year will not be known until NATO holds a meeting Eec. 15 to set fresh goals for 1953 and 1954. Pentagon officers declare NATO commanders are happy both over the quality of their troops and the kind and amounts of their equipment. They stress it never was an Allied goal lo match Russia and the Iron Curtain countries division for division. The intention was and is to deter the Soviet Union from aggression by creating a force which, in combination with our atomic potential, would be of sufficient stature to convince the Reds that any invasion would be ruinous for them. If the 1952 goals are even roughly approved, this constitutes substantial accomplishment. The record of 1952 should serve as a healthy guide to NATO planning for 1953 and beyond. It should serve also to notify the Kremlin that the West, for all its intra- family differences, is capable of doing what it sets out to do. The story of NATO to date ought not to be lost on Moscow as a lesson of what would be ahead if Russia and her compulsory friends dare to move aggressively. Germany Takes Lesson in Morals It was rather like a shotgun wedding. The atmosphere was stiff and cold. And yet it had to be recognized as a significant milestone. The German government at Bonn was voluntarily signing a pact with Israel for the payment of $822 million in restitution for the Nazis' crimes against the Jews. No one should have been surprised at the absence of a brotherly spirit at the signing. Hitler's legacy of hate and bitterness could not be so swiftly wiped out. Nevertheless, the act by the Bonn government is a first step toward recognition by Germany of its moral responsibility for what happened. More than that, however bitter the pill, it is recognition by Germans that they must • learn to live in a world peopled by humans of many different types and beliefs. Views of Others 'Ad' Reflects South's Progress Few activities reflect national trends so accurately as advertising. Particular Interest, therefore, attaches to a large "£id" in the Wall Street Journal, which carries the bold caption, "Is your next, move South?" The lihn featured in the ndverttsement has a service that helps Industrialists wishing to locate in the South to find suitable locations. The Southward migratioti of Industry Ls now so great that furnishing Information on Southern Industrial sites Is a big-time Job. An "ad" asking the question "Is your, next move South?" can expect to find many readers. Southern economic proRrc&s is truly remarkable. Even more remarkable is the fact that outsiders seem more aware of the fact than most of our own people are. —Portsmouth tVo.) Star. Coal Strike? Jolin L. Lewis will not be abte Ui snap his . fingers this fall and bring about distress in this country with a coal strike. He has been talking a little big about the expiring contractV but general opinion is that he will think twice before actually calling his miners out on a coal strike. Of course, a coal strike wouldn't help our country. But this time the coal consumers and. the country generally are in far better shape to stand a walkout, than the miners themselves, This is partially due to Lewis' foMiier tactics which have encouraged a shift to other types of fuels. Then, too, supplies of coal above ground are enormous- It- Is estimated that coal stockpiles in this cour.try are big enough lo last for 84 days. Electric power plants have enough for H6 days and railroads not only have a 47-days supply but also have many new ol! burning engines. A strike might reduce these supplies, but Mr. Lewis must know the hardship it would bring to miners arid their families nt the same time. Or does he care about tfie_ workers? We'll wait and see whether he calk a strike to find out —Shelby (N. C.) Dally SU\r. Japanese War Guilt Japan's unsuccessful attempt to conquer Asia began in 1931 with the Invasion of Manchuria, and the Japs had been engaged in aggression for ten years when they struck their big blow at Pearl Harbor, Dec. 1, 1941, a blow which n former foreign minister ot Japan now snys was provoked by Uie late President Roosevelt, Yes r Japan^ was "provoked" by the United SUtcs before Pearl Harbor was attacked. For one thing, she was,provoked because we had stopped sending her aviation gasoline, scrap iron and other materials with which to carry on her war in Asia. It was a provocation which many Americans had ur^ed long before the government ot the United States acted to boycott Japan for her aggression in China. Most Americans thought we were a goort deal more than naive in sending the Japs supplies with which to wage war as long as we did. A good many anti-American articles have appeared in the Japanese press since Japan regained its independence last April ?8. This could be an tndicntion that even atomic bombs failed to end imperialistic thinking in Japan. —Lexington Herald. SO THEY SAY Right in the Breadbasket Peter Edson's Washington Column — Justice Department Sets Out On a Real Cleanup of Its Slate WASHINGTON —(NEA>— De- lartment of Justice is again news. Sot because of its scandals, but ecause' of the legitimate newy it nas coming up on the" prosecution f government cases that have ong been dormant. Time was, during the 1930's and he war years, when Washington •enortcrs had to keep n sharp eye on Department of Justice and cover it regularly. Then, with the advent of Tom Clark as attorney general in 1945, the lid of censorship was clamped on. The only news that ever came out of the place was what w»s handed out in press releases. Assistant attorneys general and division chiefs were forbidden to talk to the press and even to Con : less. The attorney general became the only authorized spokes- et er Edwn by the new attorney general, the former judge nnd ex-congressman, James Patrick McGranery of Pennsylvania. There Has Been No "Whitewash" When McGranery was first named to the job last April, there To Expose Officials' Private Gai Another aspect ot this revie was to get the list of names o attorneys appearing for clients i government cases. It shows ihe names of many con gressmen, ex-congressmen and e were various Republicans like Sen-1 government attorneys who may h a tor Ferguson of Michigan and Representative Veide of Illinois [ who charged he would do another i whitewash J o b. • B u t it hasn't worked out that way at all. The old practice in the Department of Justice during the lust half-dozen years seemed to be to bring few cases to trial that were not sure to win decisions for the government. Too many cases seemed to be settled out of coin'.. The new practice appears to be pretty much the opposite. Everything is going to be brought to trial. A new solicitor-general, replacing Philip B. Perlman, will be named before the new Supreme Court term begins in October using their official positions an official information they figurativ ly threw out their government o fice windows, then went on t! sidewalks and picked up for pr vate gain.

It was in this period when reporters couldn't find out what was going on inside the department that all the mess now being uncovered was cooked up. Public hearings later this month by the House judiciary investigating subcommittee under Rep. Frank Chelf of Kentucky are expected to throw much new Sight on what happened in Department of Justice during the blackout years of 1946-51. But, tbc real news that Is again making the Department a regular port of call for reporters will be in the actions about to be taken from Special Master Will I?avis, and the school segregation cases. There will be new grand jury investigations in the District of Columbia probably leading to indictments of some of the former top officials in Bureau of Internal Revenue. Various income tnx fraud cases will also be brought to trial. One of Attorney General Mo- Grauery's first acts after taking over his new job was to ask all Department of Justice divisions and ail U. S. district attorneys for lists of cases pending in their files. These lists have been carefully gone over. Many cases lhat have been held up for no good reason will be set for trial.

This is true, so long as there iy no conflict of interest.

South should therefore plan '"to crcsh the top hearts and then lead the ten of hearts from the South hand, discarding dummy's remaining diamond, If East is compelled to win this trick, he gets only a heart instead of a diamond, and therefore gains nothing by tbe exchange. What's more, the diamond discard from the dummy prevents West from ever gaining the lead. West can therefore never lead a club for his partner to ruff. When South 'begins by laying down the ace of hearts, a very expert East would see that his own plot had been discovered and would also understand South's plot.

East would hope that his partner had the ten of hearts, and would therefore he able lo win the third round of that suit. If so, South's plot would fail. Unfortunately for our expert East, the ten of hearts is in the South hand, and becomes established by East's hopeful unblock. South therefore cashes the ten of hearts to discard dummy's remain- ng diamond. Then it's a cinch to nock out the ace of spades and vin the rest of the tricks. the Doctor Says — By KDW1X P.

Q—For the past several months I have been suffering at intervals from burning tongue. I have been treated for anemia wiili no appreciable results. My general health otherwise is quite good. What do you advise?—H. S. A—The cause of a sensation of burning of the tongue may be difficult to find. Irritation from rough or unclean teeth can be responsible. Electric currents from unlike 'illings of the teeth may also cause this condition. 'UcM Info^linn which does not show much of atiythiner on the tongue is another possibility. Smoking, or irritating foods, or drinks may also be considered. Vitamin deficiencies arc sometimes responsible. The tongue reflects the condition of the digestive tract lo some degree, and so this is another possibility. In fact, there are several other possible causes and it may be necessary to try one kind ol treatment after another before this unpleasant sensation can be banished.
