One might argue that a drive over the 38th parallel involves risk of general war. The answer to that is: no more than docs the present action. If Russia wants war, we shall have it. If she docs not, plunging into North Korea will not produce it. If Driven to 38th Parallel, Reds Will Pose Problem We are still struggling, to hold a ' sizable Korea. Though our -military leaders are confident we can stay on the peninsula, there's admittedly » serious risk to our positions. Yet'even if we should be thrown into the sea, we would come back to smash the Soviet-directed aggression of the North Koreans. So it's fair to ask at this critical period: How far should the i aggressors be pushed back? i All our original plans called for driv- ' Ing them only to the 38th parallel, the artificial boundary established in Korea -,.by U. S. and Russian, occupying forces fat the end of World War II. : Since then high'officials both in the • II. S. and the United Nations have been ! wondering whether that will be enough. No decision whether to go farther has , been reached, and probably none will be ' until the necessity for it is greater. Suppose we decide in the end it is ..-•till wisest lo halt at the 38th parallel. This will leave the North Koreans with • staging base from which to mount a new attack southward when their Russian masters again should consider the moment suitable. To be sure, if we give the northerners a thorough pummeling in pushing them lhat far, their strength will certainly be badly depleted for a long time. We already are pounding their industry and transportation heavily. But the enemy might succeed in saving fair amounts of material and pulling back substantial remnants of his forces—all this to serve as the nucleus for R new invading army at a later time. One way to meet that prospect, of course, would be simply to occupy South Korea for an indefinite .period. But this obviously could be no more than a tentative solution of the Korean problem. Korea should be unified. The United Nations tried to achieve unity and failed because Russia would not allow it. There is no reason to believe she ever will so long as she controls the northern area. Except, of course, on her own terms. The UN now recognizes the South Korean government as the legal government of all Korea. That being so, the .legal foundation exists for crushing the puppet North Koreans completely and occupying the whole peninsula with American and UN military forces. If peace and unity are ever lo be brought lo that country, it can only be through the permanent wiping out of the invasion threat from North Korea. Anything less than lhal means an armed truce between South and North which could be broken at the will of the proved aggressors. Should the U. S. and UN decision be to continue fighting north of the 38th parallel, the move must have full UN Mnclion. It can't be an American effort, In the Hippolitical World— I'.'s comforting to know that world power politics slops at the zoo gate. 01- ga, a lady hippo from Leipzig in the Russian zone of Germany, has been allowed to join a boy friend named Knaul- schke in the West Berlin zoo, lying in Allied occupation territory. When Germany was divided between East and West, all the female hippos were caught in the Soviet zone. On the other hand, Knautschke, the only male, was in Hie West. This boded ill for the future of German hippos. Now even the Russians recognize people need a little fun in life and that zoos help. So Olga, and Crete before her, have been allowed to pass the zonal check points with full diplomatic privileges. There's no iron curtain in the animal world. So They Say Military Training? Not Now. Unless there Is » change In the ominous trend of world affairs we will have military training in the future—call it UMT or any other name you wish. Rear Admiral H. A. Houser, spokesman for the Defense (Department, told the Armed Services Committee that s bill lor Universal Military Training Is .bring drafted and should reach congress soon. No details were given, presumably the • bill, If passed, would not take effect until after the Korean war. President Truman said he will not seek pw- sAge of such legislation at this time—although he \s K staunch supporter of the Idea. He fears that It might Interfere with other vitally needed legislation for the present emergency. Even if he did want UMT now, key members of Congress would object, arguing igalnst the cost in money and manpower, when piled on top of the growing defense bill. Congress has shied away from the compulsory training proposal. Three years «go a special committee of civilians made * long stxtdy of the problem, and said universal training should be adopted. President Truman agreed, passed It along to Congress—and nothing happened. Compulsory service in peacetime Is repugnant la the American people. If It mufit be accepted, it will not come by our own choice. It will be adopted only a* * necessary defense against gangster nations not content to stay in their own yards. For the present we have plenty of other fish to fry, as the President said. We have a xnctory to win in Korea, n stronger military defense to build and a huge production Job ahead of us which promises to draw heavily on all available manpower. When that big Job is done it will be time enough to decide whether our future security demands compulsory training. —ARKANSAS DEMOCRAT Deferment Justified Selective Service Is wise In following, for the present, & liberal deferment policy toward students who have begun college courses and who, scholastical.y, are In the upper halt of their classes.

From that viewpoint • WASHINGTON (NEA)— Government reorganisation in line with ex-President Herbert Hoovers Commission recoi run endat ions Is about over for this year.

Adding up all the reogranization moves achieved in the past year and a half, since the Hoover reports came out, it's still impassible for the naked eye to observe what difference has been made. As for the natural questions of how, much money has been saved, nobody can gtve any accurate answer. But 'tis said the government is now operating more efficiently, 'tis said. One-Third of Fresidrnt'a Plans Rejected • A score card show* that. President Truman submitted 34 reorganization plans to Congress, One of them —on Treasury—went up twice because the first version wasn't acceptable to Congress. In all, eight plans were vetoed by Congress and 26 were approved. more efficient. Few people who are The eight plans Congress killed not experts on government have | covered Department of Agriculture, Federal Communications Commission, Federal Security agencies, creation. of a Department of Social Security, transfer of Reconstruction Finance Corporation to Commerce Department and reorganization of the Office of Comptroller of Lhe Currency. The 26 plans approved cover most of the other Departments of Government — State, Defense, Justice, Commerce, Interior and Labor. Also reorganized were a number o[ independent regulatory ""agencies like Maritime, Federal Trade.' Securities and Exchange commissions. One other question to which it is impossiple to get any accurate answers just how many of the Hoover recommendations nave now been adopted.

Occupational strains should be eliminated whenever possible and posture should be corrected. Because so many people with osteoarthritis are overweight, reducing is often advisable.
