James A. Vnn Fleet of the 8th Army, has been the emergence of Asiatic armies as hard-hitting professional fighting forces. At the outbreak of the war and previously, the outstanding characteristic of an Asiatic army was its almost total reliance on manpower. Battles were won mainly by force of numbers, with the oriental commander often willing' to spend 10 lives to kill one United Nations soldier. But the Korean conflict has hroiijrht s striking changeover t n more modern tactics based on running and improved use of firepower. The American-!rained South Korean army is now considered a first-rate fighting force, far superior to the South Korean army that so often proved unreliable in the early stages of the war. And the Chinese and N'orth Korean enemy is only slightly less proficient. The Communists have learned much by observing and successfully imitating Western war methods. v=n Fled reveals that the Chinese in particular have shown an amazing ability lo copy captured weapons, no matter how complicated. And equally important, they, ve also been able to produce the necessary ammunition to turn our weapons against us. A striking result in enemy turtles has been great increases in volume and accuracy of mortar and artillery fire. The Reds have caught on quickly to t li e values of massed fire-power. And when massed firepower is complemented by massed and expendable manpower, the threat is serious. Defensively, the enemy's ingenuity has enabled him to continue his military supply build-up despite the best that United Nations airpower has been able lo do in the "Operation Strangle" interdiction program. UN airmen will often knock out a Communist bridge or rail line only to find it hack in action within a week or so. Such recuperative powers are Visible because of two factors. First, the primitiveness of the Chinese and Xorth Korean economies enables the enemy to scatter his repair yards ?nri small factories in the thatched huts of rural villages, thus avoiding centralized groupings that culd he severely damaged in one large bombing attack. And second, vast- slave manpower makes it possible for the Reds to, maintain 5000-and 6000-man labor battalions which can be immediately mobilized for MONDAY, OCT. 6, 1952 repair". As added insurance against air attacks, as well as atomic warfare, th« Communists have turned North Korea into R veritable hive of elaborate trenches and underground tunnels, where guns, ammunitioji and spare parts can easily he hidden. In short, the modernization of warfare in the Far East,, begun by the Japanese, is rapidly reaching a climax. As yet, we can still outfight the best that the Communists have been able to throw at us. But the day when we consider Asiatic armies as mere "oriental hordes" is long past. They are now tough fighting, forces and, as they continue to adapt to modern methods in the future, it is clear that we will have to improve our own war tactics constantly if we are to stay one jump ahead. Views of Others OPS Admits 'Shot in Dork' The News-Free Pre« on Sept. 1 published In it.s editorial columns a letter from the Office of Price Stabilization to a local businessman say- Ing that "afcordinjj to Inflation we have received" the local man was operating "an eating and drinking establishment" and had not complied wi(h OPS regulations. The OPS letter 'vent further to state that unless the local businessman corrected the error of his ways promptly, he would be liable to "Criminal penalties." It just happened, however, that the recipient ' of the OPS letter was not operating an eating and drinking establishment. In a letter back lo the OPS, the local citizen informed the bureaucrats that the only eating on his premises occurred when one of his office employes occasionally brought his lunch, and the only drinking took • place when an employe bought a soft, drink at a store on the corner and consumed It In his company's warehouse. Quite properly, thf- local businessman was amazed by the Implications of the OPS letter, and he let that fact be known In his reply to the OPS. And now the OPS has come back with an answer to the explanation of the local citiwn. The OPS answer Is on a printed fortn, so it seems clear the local citizen Is not the only one thus harassed by Ihe OPS b > jv:r.::rrate. "In reply lo your recent letter," snlrt the OPS. "we would like-to explain that Ihe Information we received concern!".- y u -,ir operation of an eating and drinking establishment was from a mailing list compiled from various sources .The names appearing on this list were taken from trade snides, telephones directories and from variou-i lax divisions of the state, etc. Naturally, many errors would be. made in compiling > list of ihis kind, and, of course, we are anxious to correct pur records. "We are sony if we have caused ynu any Inconvenience since you are not subject to Ceiling Price Regulation 134. We are deleting your name from this list and we trust that you will not be bothered again In this manner." So now the OPS has admllteri its first letter really was a fake, a shot in the dark, an improper Ihreat against an Innocent bu.sme.'.sman. The OPS has admitted it really had received no legitimate "Information" concerning the local man's operations at all. The American taxpayers are paying a big tax bill to pay the salaries of the many bureaucrats who have nothing to do but harass the public. Most Americans undoubtedly can think of much better ways to spend their money. —Chattanooca News-Free Press.

It's not worth the money WASHINGTON —CNEAi— Cyrus S. Clung i.-i retiring as head of the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service. Since he has the patience of Job and the wisdom of Solomon in dealing with labor relations, It seemed like a good Idea to go around to get his last words on the subject. Strangely enough, he wasn't at sll pessimistic. He began by saying that there really was n't any "Inrjor situation," the way most people- thought of it. Take this beautiful autumn day. There wasn't a major strike or disturbance on the books. There were > lot of lit- reter Edion t le ones, but they were always around. Two hundred and fifty thousand labor contracts are signed in the United States every year. Mr. Ching ub.s?rveri. Nearly all are signed without a line about them ever getting in the papers. But every once In a while along comes a big one like the steel strike. Then people begin to talk about this labor "situation" and think lhat things are terrible- All laljor disturbances. Mr. Ching believes, arc part of the American radition of freedom. He doesn't Ike the term "free enterprise sy:v ;em," and so avoids it. Although freedom is the important Ihinp in life, it necessarily is inefficient at times. The United built on this principle of freedom, is probably the most inefficient in the world, he declares. Freedom Made Country Grow Mr. Ching goes on to explain his philosophy by saying (Jiat it is this very freedom that has been responsible for the growth and the development of this country. If matters were so arranged that there were no labor disturbances. If all strikes were suppressed, (hen he would want, to .^tart tak- !:•.:; the system apart lo see what was the matter with it. Having spent over 31) years In labor relations—most of It on management's side as an executive of (he U. S. Rubber Co.—Mr. Ching thinks things are a lot better than they used to he. He remembers the dark days of 1934 to 1937, when almost anybody could start a labor union. A lot of people became union officials then who would make old Sam Gompers, father of the American union labor movement, turn over in his grave. And the people in management who had to deal with labor relations, knew no more about it than the union bosses. Today Mr. Ching believes there is more maturity on both sides. But neither labor union officials nor management know how to use mediation, says Mr. Ching. They regard It as government .interference, which he- says It is not. It is merely government effort to help the two parties settle their own disputes. l.abnr and management repre- is no similar power wide bargaining on States government, because it Is [ sentatlves think that mediators have lo be on their slrte sll the time to be any good. And that he considers wrong. Doesn'l Know All the Answers There sre a number of labor problems Ihat Mr. Ching says ho does not know the solution lo, in spile of all his experience in this field. One of these problems involves the big industrial unions —steel, coal, rubber workers, auto workers and the like. By their size, these unions have the power of industry-wide bar- ganing on (heir side, though there In industry- the part of management. .This situation, says Mr. Ching. tends to squeeze out the little fellow in labor and the little fellow in business. This condition is not healthful, but what to do about it. Mr. Ching says he does not know. He thinks the General Motors cost-of-living escalator clause and its annual productivity increase were e^csllent—for General Motors. But they are not applicable to all industries, and thev are not the perfect solution to all labor problems. II is time to take a good look at all our labor laws, Mr. Ching declares. He does not think the "Tart- Hartley law is as bad as labor thinks it is. nor as good as management thinks It Is. But a new approach—looking at all labor questions as problems in human relations—nii?ht. ri o some good. After all, says Mr. Ching. labor relations are a good bit like marital relations. We don't know all the answers there. ,either. THIS HAS GOTTA STAY: The junking of all that whisper and monotone dialogue delivery, with realistic line-reading substituted, in "Dragnet."

The defenders' would get two hearts, a diamond, and club, but declarer would take the rest. The spade opening was far more troublesome. Rapee played low from dummy, and East played the queen to guard against the possibility that South had the doubleton ace-jack. Rapee won with the king of spades and nonchalantly made the key play of the hand Just in case you haven't worked out that key play yourself, let's go through Rapee's lightning annlysif at a slower pace. If the diamond finesse is going to succeed (actually, it won't, but South doesn't know at this moment), South wil easily make two spades, two hearts, ami five diamonds. If the diamond finesse Is going to lose, there are only eight fas! tricks, and a ninth trick "will be needed. It will do no good to go after the diamonds immediately, since the enemy will continue spades. Then the fat. will be in the fire and there will be no chance to develop the ninth trick later on. The only chance was to go after the ninth trick immediately In the hope of stealing it. So Rapee led he three of clubs at the second rick. West would have been a hero if he had hopperi up with the ace of clubs and returned the jack of ipades. But West wasn't sure that he spades were only one trick '.ram establishment, so he played * low club, allowing dummy to win with the king of clubs. That was only the second trick of the hand, hut it was actually Rapee's ninth Irick. He could now fely switch to diamonds, losing finesse to the king, and make his game with two spades, two hearts, four diamonds, and that very valuable stolen club trick.
