Combat Pay Request Has Precedent in WW2 It has been gome time now sinct •nybody has referred to what is going on in Korea as A "police action." Th« foxholes there are just as mud- dy and uncomfortable as the ones the "American G. I.'s riuj? back in what is now M*ing called "the other war." = .-." ?When it rains, which is often, it is Just as miserable as it wa s in Normandy .,U)'d St. Lo. The gun and the jungle rot *nd the "bloody nose" ridges are just as .relentless aa th'ey were at Guadalcanal «nd Iwo Jima. , .: Th« scream of artillery shells, the whine of a sniper's bullet, bring on the same cold sweat and are no less fatal in the hands of North Koreans than they were in the hands of Nazis and Japs. And,who gets the biggest mouthful of all this? The infantryman. The doughboy, the dogface. The nicety of fighting under the flag of the United Nations ia a little bit lost on G. I. Joe, pinned on his belly- while somebody else from north of the 38th parallel lobs mortar shells all over his neighborhood. Combat is the infantryman's job, 24 hours a day. And since he's doing- that job, he is beginning to wonder what's happened to the extra $10 a month he got for being a combat infantryman in that "other war." Back in \\-ash?ngton they're busy with defense figures that run j,,to billions, and a 10-dollar bill is easy to lose in the shuffle. For that matter, it isn't very much money-cxcept to the infantryman. It's combat pay, ;md he . s jn comixlt> an( , lie feels he has it coming to him. "We're fighting for the same principles as the guys in the last war," a private on the Korean front line told one war correspondent the other day "We're taking the same stuff as Uley did Why am't we gelling the 10 bucks a month they did?" They've started giving those frontline G. I, s combat infantrymen's badges now. So the foot soldier's firm belief that hes been in combat all along in Korea must be official. Somebody better pa ss the word to the paymaster, too. Animal Crackers Here and there it's still possible to «nd a news item that isn't related in som. fash.on to the Korean war, mobi . mation, and the menace of Russia For example, Mr. James itoneimilh of Dayton, 0., i. back from the Kgvpt an Sudan with a cargo of rhinoceroses leopards,.cheetahs, crested rats, « vcr' vet monkey, two gala m (whatever they J. are), and * couple of ant-eaters. Aloiiesrnith report* that h« tamed two rare white rhinos »o well he can now rid* them bareback. He also has had aome success in weaning ant-eaterg away from an insect diet to H new secret formula. Seems like there'll be more percentage in Jetting lliem eat ants and maybe selling them as auxiliary picnic equipment. Views of Others Congress Adjusts In Slow Motion Tlie Korean war might have been more palatable In congressional quarters had If, been timed to an off-election year. There can be little question that present difficulty in expediting the unwelcome lax program centers on the apprehensive eye directed at the November, voters.'The question involves both parties. Neither wants the onus of Increased taxes charged ,.to It, though the burden is heaviest on the Democrats, who constitute the majority and have primary responsibility, so the Senate's finance committee ha* decided noi to make an excess profits tax applicable until Jan. 1. H would not be surprising to see the individual Income tax lift put off to th« same date—more voters feel that directly. Probably the Kremlin did not ,time'the Korean war to the federal fiscal year,. but-to do so Is sound fiscal strategy. All.t»ic commitment! for the new year precede July 1. This war began on June 25 RIIO. we got in It two days later Re-arranging « tax program . could have been anticipated to be the headache It is now. . There is sound ground for initiating the excess profits tn.x with Jan. 1 because In most oasf.s the business fiscal year coincides with the calendar one. Also, the ledera} lax take Is based on the calendar year. Business and'industrial planning Is tailored to the same period.. With war in being, very thoughtful executlv«. and budget group have some idea or what must 'be faced In 1951. They can be under no illusions that the limitation on profits Is almost certain to come. But Congress is still subject to muddled thinking. Witness the. Senate's Monday vote to aj- «ire r, profit whlfe fixing controls on meat prices, but not to include this provision In any other commodity. This not only does not make sense, but resolves inio a combination of tyranny and absurdity. There are (wo reasons for controls- to protect the domestic economy .gainst human selfishness In > crisis and to augment the war- Income. Nobody Is helped when people are driven out of business, certainly thinking Americans expect protection against excess profits, biit they do not expect price fixing to destroy busine« operation. I While the Senate Is about It, If rent controls are to return, property owners should be protected • gainst the loss of fair profit witnessed under 'the conscienceless government administration of rent* until controls were abolished after Warld War II. —DALLAS MOHNING NEWS Have a Gum Drop People can live entirely on turn drops as long as 10 days without any harmful effects. This /act, long known to children, hu now been discovered by science. Ten men of the- United Stales Air Force ate.jhe gum drops-called "starch Jellies" for the sak*-6f seriousness-ln >n experiment performed-Irr'JUaska. To those parents who carry on > running battle with their children <L* to the relative merits of candy and good solid food, this is going to b* a crushing blow. The child who Is told not to eat candy before meals, because it might Impair his appetite, may reply with the full support of the Air Force that he could eat the candy and skip the meal, and weather the experience In prefect health. It probably will occur to more than one bright child, too, that since the Air Force has done so well with gum drops, it ought to look into some other problems as well. Is more than one dessert to top off a meal as unadvtsable as the elders say? Is there any truth In the notion that Ice cream, pickles, hot dogs and strawberry soda pop do not mix well? If the Air Force's experts can answer these questions in the negative, those wings on their uniforms won't Just be pinned on, the way children look at It. They'll be sprouting from their shoulders. -5T.

First. from the present groups to SB. ihollld be Pei«r . completed by the end of 1951. Then the full program which should be completed by 1953. The number of groups rioas not include the transport planes, air rescue service and similar auxiliaries which are organized by squadrons, Nor does it Include some 27 groups ol Air National Guard defense and tactical mipport planes* National Guard air strength is ex- IN HOLLYWOOD pected to remain at 27 grouns throughout this two-year period. " Cast of (he expansion program will be something over $6 billion for the planes alone. After the planes are built the Air Porce may need additional ground facilities at, which to base them to proper dispersal and operations. It is no longer considered advisable to go into public dlsciisj.'oji of specific plane numbers in the expansion program, though much basic information has been previously released. The 70-group plan was fully discussed with Congress when it was previously proposed. The Korean war has made little Changs in this planning. But to play it safe. Air Force expansion Ls now discussed only in general terms. B-36 Still hest Plane oi Ms Type The expansion program includes a 50 per'cent increase in heavy strategic bombers of the B-36 type. Decision to build more of these heavy bombers ,ls perhaps the best answer to frequently heard criticisms that the planes are no good. The B-36 Is still considered the best plane of its type available. But no airplane is ultimate perfection. Sooner or later the B-36 U bound to become obsolete. It will then DO replaced by other types now on drawing boards and under development. Rtissin has no B-36 equivalent. There will be a 30 per cent increase in medium bombers of the B-29 and B-50 class The B-29 was the heavy bomber of the last war.
