Regarding Asia, "There is need for the United States to as.scrt vigorously, jn the name of the whole free world, an interest in social and economic reform in free Asia and to support that interest with practical action through United Nations agencies and otherwise." The report n<Hes that the best foreign propaganda this country could have is "positive action which other peoples can see will serve their purposes as well aa our own." The tone of the report is as temperate as its wording is forthright. U it points out some of our mistakes, it also points a way to avoid future ones. And coming from whom it dues, certainly it deserves the attention and the consideration of everyone.

Civil Report Has Teeth in It; Deserves World's Attention The Research and Policy Committe« of the Committee for Economic De- Yelopment comes up with R report of interest to everyone concerned about the present world situation, HS w h o isn't. And being what it is, the committee carries some weight. Its membership reads like a who's who of American business — Libhey-Owens-Ford Glass Co., Colgate-Palnvolive-Peet Co., Bankers Trust Co. of New York, Slnndnrd Oil of New Jersey, American Gun Co., Ford Motor Co., General Elecli-ic, General Foods, Corning Glass, and several dozen more of the same. The main point made in the report is that poor and shaky governments in the free world are a greater danger even than the threat of a war started by Russia. The principal threat to the sectir- ity of the United States and the free world, the report says, "is that the economic weakness and political instability of many non-Communist countries will lead to piecemeal Communist gains and periodic crises which could undermine the morale of free countries and isolate the United States." "This, rather than the deliberate initiation of general war by the Soviet Union, aupcurs to be the greatest and most probable clanger to our aims in the next few years. "Unless prevented by successful policies, positive as well as defensive, this deterioration could lead, after a few ycjirs. to a most serious danger of general war, and even to a situation in which the Soviets' relative power had been so augmented by tciTitui'ml gains or alliances in Europe and Asia that they could successfully attack the Western Hemisphere." The best thing about the repun is that it not only points out world dangers .but offers concrete suggestions for com- batting them. On the defensive side il says that continued military programs among the free nations are essential to keep communism from disrupting "the task of building the economic and political foundations of a free and healthy society here and abroad." But it warned that primary emphasis on military build-up can be "self-defeating.'' On the positive side, the report says the main job of America is to increase its own economic health and to help other countries to solve their economic and political problems. More specifically, it recommends Tlie other clay theie was a headline In this nev,'i|)u|)cr which inquired, "Do Secretaries Baiter Your Typewriter?" The story went, on to report how, if they do. you can get a new one by leading it. Well, lousing or buying, we are not sure that solve.! the whole problem. For years we battered a typewriter until it looked pretty deplorable. Yet we managed to pound out of il copy that was fairly plain to the Linotype man who had to read IL. Then one day while we were nut. to lunch a leiivjw came along and took It away, leaving behind a shiny, brand-new one. And life has never been the same since. This new typewriter is very fine, but It Just can't spell. li we write the word "thru," which Is new-fangled spelling, it comes out all right. But being old-fashioned we want to spell it "through" and somehow it always comes out as "thorough." "Thrugho" or sometimes "thiighor". This baffles us, the typesetter, the proof reader and, when- «ver it slips by all of its and winds up in the paper, the gentle renders also. Another thing this typewriter can't do is punc- uate. It's commas In two places, and those two old friends colon and semi-colon live righ't together. The typewriter seems to think they are all one big happy family, with the result that the commas and periods piny around all over the page whether they belong or not and a colon Ls likely to show up when n semi-colon was invited. We don't want to say anything to ,cause a collapse In the typewriter Industry but there are times when old friends are best. They may get a little battered with time and worn from being too much with this world, but they learn to be sympathetic with your little peculiarities and however much you mistreat them they make VI come out all right In the end. —The Wall Street Journal Bungled Barbecue What a Mess You Turned Out to Be!"

But it would be highly advisable for their successors lo attend this session, also, to get acquaint ec with their opposite numbers in the 13 European countries nnd to give their formal approval lo the NATO goals which will be set for 1953 This has raised Ihe question o whether the new President — Ste venson or Eisenhower — will have to designate who his new Secretaries of State and Defens will be before the Paris NATO conference opens.

General Eisenhower's support of he Republican farm policy plank calling for the establishment ot ft bi-partisan board to recommend arm policy struck a familiar chord among old-time agricultural experts in Washington. Back in Herbert Hoover's acl- vninislration, he had many farm boards operating. When President Roosevelt came in, he gradually abolished nil the boards and put in single administrators. Henry Mor- getithau. Jr., for instance, was made Farm Credit Administrator, and the'Farm Credit Board which with dummy's king and immediate ly tried a spade lead to the West took the ace of spades and led j the nine of diamonds to Stmth's jack. Mrs. Sobel no*- tried another spade, losing to East's jack. East returned-.\ diamond, and the defenders could now take three diamonds, and three spades. The non- tract was thus set two tricks, for a penalty of 200 points. At the other table. Sol Mogul, another \ve.l-kncywn New York expert, played the South hand. He likewise won the opening lead with dummy's king of diamonds. But he hen ran four rounds of clubs on he theory that thus might embar- ass the enemy but could not damage his own hand. The Idea was a very good one Charles Goren. who held the Wesl hand, had to find two discards or the clubs.

A widely expressed opinion In V-'.-Hhintitpn is that a bi-partisan farm policy board—operating independently from the two congress i o n a 1 agricultural committees which are really bi-partisan farm policy-makers—wouldn't work.
