Russia's March Back to UN Is Unreasoning as Ever By returning to the United Nations Security Council, Russia is giving the world one more dramatic lesson in the nature of Soviet diplomacy. The world should mark it well. The lesson is that Moscow is completely cynical in her dealings with other rations. She may vow over and over at the top of her lungs that she will never take a certain step, ami give elaborate reasons why. Then suddenly Russia may execute a full right-about-face and do the very thing she said endlessly she'd never do. In this case, the Soviet Union walked out of the Security Council last January in protest against its failure to seat Communist China in place of Chiang Kai-shek's Nationalist representaivc. Through succeeding weeks, Soviet delegates deserted every UN agency on which Nationalist China was represented. Russia shouted in a hundred different ways that she'd never set foot in UN council chambers until Red China was admitted. Soon afterward the Soviet leaders stooped to the lowest depths of cynicism. Taking advantage of Indian Prime Minister Nehru's well-intentioned tle- ' sire to mediate the Korean war, Premier Stalin announced that Red China's admission to UN councils was a necessary prelude Lo any talk of peace. Our government turned down Sla- lin's blackmail terms. Still .Moscow persisted, repealing ils offer via official radio broadcasts. One who was foolish enough to take Russian statements at face value would have concluded from this that Russia began tht Korean war to get Communist China into the UN. How fraudulent this pose was can be clearly seen now. A brief telephone call from Jacob Malik, Russia's Security Council representative, to UN Secretary-General Lie demolished the whole fake facade in a matter of seconds. Russia came back. Her reasons don't matter, from the standpoint of this lesson in Soviet behavior. What docs count is that her reasons are not the ones you'd expect from all the .shouting: she didn't gain Red China's admission. She came back when it suited her intentions of the moment, just as she walked out when it fit her earlier diplomatic strategy. Thus it will always be with Russia. There may be times when she will really mean what she says. But only the men in the Kremlin will know when; the rest of the world dares not bank on any declaration. To the world's diplomats and average citizens alike, that is the first and most fundamental meaning of Russia's UN r«Y«r*al. WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 2, ,1950 Go on, Hoard— And Get Rationing Bernard M. Baruch, famed elder statesman, proposed drastic mobilization plans when he appeared recently 'before Congress. Even President Truman felt constrained to stress he doesn't think such severe measures are needed yet. Yet only by a narrow 10 to 9 vote did the House Banking Committee turn down Baruch'a proposals, which include price and wage controls. That close decision is a key to Washington's mood in this crisis. Aroused at last, the lawmakers seern ready for any program they feel might be required to prepare the country for a showdown with Russia. The vole is an unmistakable warning, too, that much more foolish scare-buying and hoarding will be met by the only action that can halt it—rationing and price ceilings. Views of Others A Manpower Chicken Comes Home to Roost Among ihc chickens coining home to roost these feverish tiny a is Ihc nation's short-sighted policy on military manpower. In Marquis Chillis column of Wednesday, It wa.s pointed out that many GI'.s fighting in Korea are barely literate. In Western Germany, the Army has found it necessary to run special schools to give American soldiers elementary education. Precious time and money has been expended in order to bring men 10 a level where the process of making soiuiers out of them could begin, All that schooling would have been unnecessary, we submit, if the Congress and the people hud faced up to their military manpower commitments since the end of WorJd War 11. They have not. Despite the urging ol the President and Die Defense Establishment, Congress refused to pass a Universal Military Training Bill. And instead of milking the Selective Service Act for what would nt feast have been a representative cross-section of American youth, the emphasis was placed on attracting volunteers. That was the painless, the politically attractive, way. But It was not the best way. Why did the Army saddle itself with large numbers of men who had less than average education or intelligence? The answer, of course, lies In the fact that the Army needed recruits ami could not afford to be too choosy. If the pool ol candidates for selection had been larger, the presumption is that more discrimination could have been exercised. The theory on which the small size of our peacetime force has been Justified is that the personnel be of excellent quality, highly paid specialists fit for modern warfare. In Hctual fact, the defense services have all too often had lo be content with factory- rejects and misfits. Many volunteers are excellent men who chose the military life as a career. That goes without saying. But obviously such a rigorous branch of service as the iniRTUfy, for example, will have difficulty attracting-the flower of Ihe nations youth at a time of prosperity and full employment. The Infantry must compete not only with private Industry but with more glamorous services, such as the Air Force, tho Navy and the Marines, It is no wonder recruits have been accepted who were, to say the least, not icieal material. The American public is asking why the United States' troops were not better trained, as well as better armed. Maybe it is because the Army was too busy running schools to teach its recruits what they should have known before they were accepted for military service. —ATLANTA JOURNAL So They Say However well Intended, thoughtless pressure groups, whether they be veteran, church, labor, industry, race or patriotic, must not be permitted to reduce the (school) curriculum to a hollow shell. —Martin, chairman of the N.E.A.

Spiritual Rebuilding Is Seen in Japan \ The DOCTOR SAYS Epilepsy Is the most common cause of "fits" In children, but some youngsters have convulsions which By DeWITT MACKENZIE AP fonlgti Affairs Analyit Japan, seeking ideological rehabilitation amidst the ruln« of her defeated military oligarchy, Is beginning to turn towards thlngi spiritual.

There are two main kinds of true epilepsy. The less serious kind Is In New York and he confirmed that a spiritual movement was under way in his country. Nippon has been suffering from a low wave of morality. She lost, her old Ideology in military defeat and the post-war years found her with nothing to take Its place. The result of this Ideological va- cailed petit mal, In which there is.cuum was that communism rushed a brief loss of consciousness with- j in and took advantage of the situa- ouL convulsions. The severe typejtion. After all, communism did at is called grand ma], in which there is a mental "blackout" associated with typical convulsions. Before an attack there Is usually a peculiar sensation In some part of the body. This is known as an aura. The sensation Is hard to describe but an "uneasy feeling" In the stomach area Is one of the most common. Those who have enileptlc attacks learn to recogpize this aura and to know that nn attack Is on the way. At thp beginning of a major at- least have a concrete Ideology to offer and plenty of arguments to back It. The result was that many Japanese students turned to th« Red Ism, lacking anything better. This provided a poUmt challenge to Japanese leaders who had no use for communism and saw that they must arm themselves with new Ideals If they were to compete with communism. That was the position when the Ideology of moral rearmament began to register In Japan. Moral Standards tack, the patient may give a loud] M. R.

WASHINGTON — (NBA) — Australia's Prime Minister Robert Gordon Menzies Is the next head of a foreign government for whom Washington will roll out the red carpet. The rumor is! he's coming t o 3 \sk for a loan. The ceremony, [or these visits of state is now work-] ed down to a pretty good formula. Visit with! the President.' Speech before Congress. Reception by the secretary of slate. Talk before the Press Chib. Conferences with secretary of the treasury and Export-Import Bank. In the case of Mr, Menzics. the dog may not be spread on quite so thick. No parades, for Instance. One reason may be that the trip is his idea, following conferences in London ment, Australian taxpayers—not American—are financing Prime Minister Menzie's visit. This Is a bit unusunl with the British govern- in itself. The plush Is really put on one now. The Tjibor government only for those heads of state whom talked a little about a loan after the U.S. government invites over here special on the number one tour, to influence and win over as friends. Mr. Mcnzics is already a friend, and though he wasn't invited spccinl, the latchstrtng and welcome mat are always out. The Australian prime minister has bn'n here before. He visited Washington early In the war. Then he was in the Australian minority opposition for eifiht years, while the Labor Party was in *power. Its defeat Inst December put Mr. Men- 7.ies back as prime minister. Australia Wants to Buy Concerning the loan, the Australian izovernmcnt and the Australian embassy in Washington aren't doinp 'any talking. Even U.S. State Department officials profess to be in the dark about tiny such request being rnnde. But the news has been printed in Australia, without any mention of the size of the touch to be requested. Export-Import Bank says It has never made any loans to Australia, has no application on file to make the war. Nothing came ol It. But a situation making a loan awfully convenient has been building up In Australia since the war. The sum,and substance of It is that while Australia has bis surpluses of pounds sterling and Australian pounds, she Is short of dollars. And there are a lot of things Australia wants to buy, which can be bought only with dollars. For the first ten months of the Australian fiscal year, which ends in June. Australia Imported $95.000.000 worth of American products and sold "the U.S. only $90,000,000 worth of Australian products. For the corresponding period of the years before, imports were $74,000,000 and exports only $65,000,000. The Improvement, has been due largely to an increase of Australian wool exports to the U.S. Australia has had an all-time record clip this year, valued at over $600.000 000. The United States has, to date, taken $63.000,000 worth of this wool, as against only S36.000.000 for See EOSON on Paje ^ ' legs extended straight out.

Attacks may come only at night so thnt occasionally someone may be cnilcptic for years without knowing Sometimes there is a familv hls- N tory of the disease. If this Is the case about four-filths of those children who are headed for epilepsy have nn att'ck before they are four years old. This makes for an early diagnosis. When there Is no family history the first attack Is likely to come later. The outlook for the victim of epilepsy is now considered more hopeful than it was several years ago.
