Does Use of Guided Missi les Mean Start of All-Out War? News that the Navy has used guided missiles in the Korean wav brings up another new question in that strange and little-underatood conflict. Will use of the powerful, pilollcss weapons mean the beginning of a new and increasingly deadly phase of the war? It's not known generally how far the Russians have developed this type of weapon, but if they have it there is no reason to think Ihey won't now use it. And once the bars are down, where do tilings go from there? Our first guided missile was a clumsy affair compared to the potential of this type of weapon, compared even to lhe type used by the Germans in World War II. But once it becomes an accepted thing in Korea, improved versions certainly won't he long in coming. Certainly, in all-out war, it's lo he expected that all of the best and latest in military equipment will be used. But Korea is not an all-out war. It is very definitely and deliberately a limited war. How then does the use of guided missiles fit in with this confined conflict? If it means an intensification, or even possibly an enlargement, of the war, that is a matter of concern to the American people. ; Traffic Toll Heartache How many people in your family, four? Then two of yon are BOIIIK to be injured in traffic accidents before you die. Shocking, isn't it, when you look at it that way? And yet .statistically it is a fair assumption. The National Safely Council asserts that miles.* an effective way is found to curb traffic accidents, which killed 37,300 persons and injured another 1.300.000 last year, one out of every two persons living today will be injured in traffic before ho dies. Who will be in your family. Sister. Junior. Mother or Dad? And don't just ask yourself that grim question. What can you do to prevent it ? Safety engineers say that' miracle? could be accomplished in reducing t h p traffic toll if drivers would obey a few simple rules: 1. Drive courteously—show concern for the oilier fellow instead of competing with him for speed, space and hospital room. '1 Drive "defensively" — that means that you always look ahead for road problem;: and traffic signals and watch •what other drivers are doing instead of BLYTHEVIT.LE (ARK.)

Drive legally—obey the limitations which competent highway engineers have tried to put on your driving to save your life and the lives of other drivers. Von can't reform Al.l, drivers overnight in accordance with these .suggestions. But you CAN start with yourself maimed in traffic. Not Temptation-Proof In .Maryland the other day, Governor McKoldin got a handsome check for ?7000 as a gift from friends. He didn't say who the friends were. He was promptly jumped- on for exercising doubtful judgment, since a public official clearly must be beyond suspicion and it was H natural question what the "friends" might expect in return. McKeldin quickly assured everybody the money would not be used for his personal benefit, but this didn't satisfy his critics and the clamor continued. So, finally, he gave the check back. The citizens of his state may look askance. Hut they pay their governor just 54500 n year in official salary. That's hardly a temptation-proof stipend in these inflationary times. Views of Others Much Flap A tertiary f!a|> is so me tiling niidwnv between a snafu and a hnsslt. Or so we understand from Secretary of Defense Lovetl, who . advocates more and better ones. fact's untangle what he means. Your terltiary [lap is not n hassle, which is nn argument of sound nnd fury signifying nothing, nor Is it a foullng-up of the situation. It Is the reorganied chaos In between. It is vastly preferable lo a primary flap, or temper, spell, and to secondary flap, or bureaucratic mayhem by telephone. In teiitiary flap you begin with wild disagreement and then sit down nnd hammer out your differences. All of this Is remote from the layman, but as we get it, flap Is a common condition in the Pentagon, which, now that unification has taken place, Is a very den of iniquity, if tertiary flap Is to be encounigcd there, surely it ought, to ba applied to the country at large. As Mark Twain said of n big navy, we have the water and we have the men so all we nceil are the ships. We have the disagreement, and mnybe the hammers, so nil we need is the brute force to herd the prlma donnns together, make them sit down and over. .JifAsheville (N. C.) citizen. talk t Walter Reuther Walter Reuther. head or ll.e CIO United Workers, said Ills \mion does not welcome the clrcum- stnnccs of R three cent hourly wnge Incrcnse under the new Bureau or Labor Index. Some million members are affected. Reuther said the increase "docs not compensate [ or n n i|, c [j amage (lone to the people of cur nation by runaway inflation" which he blamed on •'. . . reactionaries who did most to scuttle price control and now complain about the 50-ccnt. dollar." We wonder what it, would take to satisfy Walter Keiithcr. No doubt if he were given the world with a fence around it, he would complain that the fence was too low and would want "corporate wealth" to build It higher. By every Index, nnd every lest, either Government or private, wa B cs have risen more than anything else In this country - more tlmn the price of raw materials, more than profits, more than land, more than the price of farm products. It is the demands of unions for higher wages lhat have contributed, more than any other factor, to Inflation. And finally, upon one of the few occasions when the cost of livin K index went down, and Oeneral Motors was justified under its contract, in reducing WBRCS. this same Mr. Reuther and liis associates, let out a loud squawk, and said it ."houldn'l be done. —Elinbethtown (Ky.)
