But hints and vague statements do not deter invasion, Firm, clear talk is the need. Reds Are Brave— Behind Skirts Like the gangster who uses his landlady as a shield while he tries to. escape from a hideout ringed by police, the North Koreans are resorting to feminine shirts to screen tlieir military operations. We recently had a report that a Red lank spearhead thrusting across a key bridge put a large % number of Korean women and children at the head of the column. Naturally, American forces held their fire. Behind this protective phalanx, the Red tanks successfully made the crossing. Is any comment necessary 7 Views of Others Blunt Talk by UN Might Halt Further Aggression Probably nothing is tougher than trying to guess Russia's next move. We'd be wrong, for example, if we imagined the keepers of the Kremlin as menial robots with every step mapped out according to a fixed timetable. The record proves Salin and his Politburo ara opportunists. They move if and when they view a situation as favorable. Right now no one outside Stalin's ruling circle knows whether Moscow is embarked on a continuing schedule of aggression. If it is, th« Politburo will gauge the will to re- gist shown by the likely victims, measure the aid that might be brought to their side, and act accordingly. Many observers see Yugoslavia 'as the most eligible victim on the list. They believe Russia still doesn't wish to commit her own forces but to rely upon •atellite armies, as in Korea. And Tito i* surrounded by the Red puppet forces of Bulgaria, Albania, Rumania and Hungary. There's a possible error in this appraisal, however, because Tito's army is generally rated strong enough to beat, off satellite attacks. The Yugoslavs themselves believe it. And they reason that the Russians know it, too. Some reports suggest, therefore, that Tito will not be really worried until he hears that Soviet troops are grouping to join an assault against him. If this attitude reflects a sound judgment of the satellite forces encircling Tito, then doubt must be cast on thc choice of Yugoslavia as next victim. For it means Russia would have lo enter the fight to assure victory. On the other hand, the Korean war has been a rude shock to those who tend to underrate satellite armies. The puppet Norh Koreans were well trained - and supplied from the start. They are being steadily reinforced and resupplied in sufficient strength lo maintain their attacking momentum. In the light of this showing, it's risky to assume that Russia's eastern European satellites would not make plenty of trouble for Tito evei\ if no single Soviet soldier should march. Anyway, we can't really measure satellite strength or Russia's intent with regard lo her own forces. But there's one thing we and the rest of the free world can do to alter the equation the Politburo will consider when it debates the next move: Speaking Ihrough Ihe United Nations, we can tell Mdscow that Yugoslavia will get the same kind of help from non-Communist countries that the South Koreans are gelling. We can declare this'in specific language thai will dispel all doubts in the minds of thc Kremlin's opportunists. Already we've said we would take Truman and Baruch As President Truman reported on Ihe economic state of the milion in his customary midyear message (o Congress—recalling that everything in the country's economy from production to strikes, with the exception of (arm Income, was at, a higher level this year than last—Bernard Baruch called on Congress to Impose an overall ceiling across the entire economy. Thc President also paid attention lo rapidly rising prices and the possibility of scarcities when he declared himself ready to call (or "complete economic mobilization" if the nation's defense requires that step. But he told Congress he believed price ceilings, rationing, and scarcities can be avoided if he is given the limited controls he has asked for credit, scarce materials, civilian goods, and requisition ol war needs. Apparently he believes immediate lax increases will absorb money that otherwise is go- oing in bidding up prices of consumer goods. But Bernard Baruch, whose title of "elder. statesman" has been won in years past by saying the right tiling &t the right time, argued the danger of inflation Is greater now than If we were presently in full war. Even since the Korean outbreak, he declared, rising prices huve given an excuse lo demand wage increases this fall and winter. "Higher wages*" Mr. Baruch said, "will leact to still higher prices. The ri&hl time to stop Inflation is always—now!" In addition Mr. Baruch urges thc organization of America "for all-out mobilization." Thc next five years, he believes, represent the most. crucial period in our efforts to mobilize which is necessary even should the Korean affair be settled ".without involvmcnt of other aims." We would be ready (hen to meet "whatever happens—new aggressions abroad, possible destruction it home." Despite the unpopularity of Mr. Baruch's advice in the years preceding the two wot Id wars, events justified most of his recommendations oti those occasions. Atj.the least his prevent proposals should be giveirjicrjous attention by Congress. "' -""•'•= • —NEW ORLEANS TIMES PICAYUNE Honest John in Character Honest John Brickcr, us the Senator from Ohio Is sometimes described, hasn't changed. When asked to comment on thc President's mobilization message, he said; "It's the Administration's war, and we've got to give the President what he thinks is necessary to combat the enemy." "It's the Administration's war." Doe: n't that remind you of the dark days of the struggle against Hitler and Tojo, when Die isolationists whispered that this was "Roosevelt's war"? Politicians have to find formulas, and politicians like John Brickcr have to find a formula for supporting the Government In a crisis and at the same lime blaming their opponents for the crisis. All thc same, it would be refreshing to hnd an "out" politician who is willing to biame aggression on tne aggressor rather than on the victim thereof.

Superforts Are Versatile Lack of North Korean anti-aircraft fire and lack of North Korean combat planes have permitted the U.S. B-29 super forts bombers to do two missions they were never intended for — low - level bombing and ground strafing. Radio contact with ground troops can be maintained even by walkie-talkie radio. Stralncfl or Public Relations? Navy had its trotible finding an admiral to run public relations during the Korean crisis. Vice Adm. Russell S. Bcrkey, the new man who wa.s on the job when the Korean incident began, was partially incapacitated by the return of an old leg injury which resulted from playing 54 holes of golf in one day. Rear Adm. Hugh H. Goodwin was rushed he would the announcement handle public relations for the duration. The first wnek of Goodwin's tenure he let fly a broadside of criticism at the regular Pentagon reporters. He bawled them out because the papers had- "n't given enough play to suit him. unit which had volunteered 100 per cent. His other gripe was over thc printing of rumo'rs that the carrier Valley Forge had been sunk. Reporters replied that they had nothing to do with either of his complaints. Arid one lower-rank Navy officer was heard to whisuer, "You can see what a terrible job of in- dictrination we have." fewest admiral on the job Is a veteran of Navy's press section, Rear Adm. Robert P. Hickeyi who knows his way around public relations and Is expected to stick. What's Good for Dinner, Warden? Secretary of Agriculture Charles F. Brannan was explaining .to the House Agriculture Committee hoy, hard his department had tried to get rid of all those government surplus eg^.s, butter, dried milk and cheese. The secretary said they had given away all they could Lo federal and state institutions, with the result that the per capita consumption in such places was higher than the national average.
