Views of Others UMT Needed to Save Lives, Discourage Aggressors The foot soldier shuffled along the hot, dusty road that led away from the front, somewhere in South Korea. All night he had been in the middle of hell. The Reds never stopped coming, and now he retreat, leaving some of his buddies tip there for good on the hill they couldn't hold. •'•'• . "There aren't enough of us," he said. There was weariness in his voice, and a little bitterness, too. This was early in August, 1050. By now there are more men to help hold such hills— even enough men to start pushing the shrunken (J. S. battle lines-northward again. But it will take many more men to win the long, grim war that began a little less than two months ago as "police action" against a Red invasion. It will Uke many more men after that to hold what we have won, to keep us from repeating our slow, desperate retreat southward from some oilier Seoul, some other Taejon. We don't have the men now. In a few months, as the draft boards get up steam, we hope to have a million in uniform. They won't be ready for anything then; they'll still be green recruits/needing months more of training, before they are soldiers. We could have had the men in August, 1950. Four years ago President Truman, General Marshall, General Eisenhower, General MacArthur and others of the nation's leaders asked for a Universal Military Training law. It would have trained 850,000 youths each year, and hy now we would have had a trained reserve of more than three million. But Congress wasn't interested then. Neither were enough American people. The war was over. And UMT died. Now "these aren't enough of us," as the tired soldier in Korea said; and PiM'F has been revived. The Defense Department is going to ask Congress for it; the American Legion is again leading the fight, and this time it appears Congress is listening with a favorable ear. Some American parents may still shy from the idea of their 18-year-old sons leaving home for six months of basic training plus another six months of specialized training. Let them listen, then, to Gen. John R. Hodge: "How many lessons must we have? How many lives of untrained youths must we sacrifice before we realize that aggressors will not threaten if we are ready . . . before they come? Universal Military Training is not a system of aggression. It is a method of peace." Genera) Hodge wrote those words in 19.n--ironicall.v-, when he was command- mg U. S. forces in Kore*. And in 1050 Tax Excess Profits Now The Senate Banking Committee has voted for a 3-blllion-dollar increase in individual Income taxes, collection to start Oct. 1. The committee has voted [or a l-li2-billion- dollar increase in corporation income taxes, collection to start Jan. 1. For individuals, tire increase will apply to the last quarter of 1050 income, and most of It will be paid in that quarter through pay-ai-you-go salary deductions. Tor corporations, the increase will spply to the last half of 11)50 income, and all of it will b« paid In 1951, since corporations are not on a pay- as-you-go basis. In proposing to collect in new taxes two dollars from individuals for every one dollar collected from corporations, Senator George's committee is. of course, taking note of the fact that individuals as a group have far more Income to be taxed than corporations as a group. But it should also take note of the fact that corporations have received a much greater percentage reduction of their taxes since the cud of World War II than individuals. In 19+9 the Treasury collected from Individuals 7 per cent less than m the wartime peak, but H collected tram corporations 42 per cent less. Now that defense needs make a tax rise unavoidable, Congress should see to it that the Increase Is fairly apportioned. The obvious way to do this Is to enact an excess profits lax, and make it applicable to corporation income for the latter half of 1050. If a corporation does not have excess income during that period, it won't pay an excess profits tax. It U dees have excess Income, it ought to pay the tax, President Truman says there will be an ex- profits tax eventually, why not now? if it is put off until after next January, the tax will apply to 1051 income and will not be collected until 1952. Boll, to right inflation effectively and to apportion the defense load (airly excess profits should be taxed, as Individual income will be taxed, notv. —ST.

Now that the Senate Armed Services Committee and a House subcommittee have approved legislation which would provide these families with the minimum essentials. It is urgently to be hoped that the Congress will lose no further time in enacting such a measure into law. -ATLANTA JOURNAL So They Say We must never again face a great national crisis with ammunition lacking . . . few s uns to fire and no decisive procedures for procuring vital arms in sufficient quantities.

"Paying (for defense.) through axatlon may seem to Increase the urden, but it does not," says lough. On the other side of the rgument he says. "Direct controls re difficult to Impose fairly. They re likely to lead to evasion. They o not get to the heart of the trou- le and may merely postpone infla- on. . . .They are likely to hamper conomic growth. . . , Taxation ant! ther fiscal means should therefore at used first, with various kinds f direct controls being employed nly as they are required." Ule Department Jumps on Defense Department o! State and Department of Defense are now at logger- IN HOLLYWOOD heads over release of Information on Russian participation In Korean war. When an Army briefing officer recently gave out intelligence report that there were two or three Russian officers operating right down to battalion headquarters every Korean division, a State Department official complained bitterly. What state apparently wants to do is release all Juc h information through Ambassador Warren Austin, at United Nations Security Council, m that way, this Intelligence has maximum propaganda effect on the Russians. UMT With No KP New Universal Military Training bill just introduced In Congress represents a compromise In proposal on schedule for trainees. American Legion, which has been most active In pushing UMT, originally wanted three periods of four months each 'or the year's training. First four months would be for selection, Induction, transportation of boys to camp, issuance of equipment, physical training and getting the trainees hmisebroken to Army life. Second four months would be basic military training up to platoon or company maneuvers. Third four months or its equival-nt would be spent in reserves. National Guard r extended training. Department of Defense has held out for two six-months' periods, and bill sent to Congress provides for 1 this schedule. First six months would be divided into three months for transportation and induction of trainees, then three months of basic training. Second period would be six months or equivalent In reserves. Lrgion claims l[.s original plan would be more economical as the 800.000 young men trained each year would be divided into thr.-e groups and require fewer instructors and service troops. "" " do .
