Bdruch Turns Milestone In Long, Useful Career On his favorite bench in New York's Central Park, from which he has many times offered advice that lias shaped the affairs of our nation, Bernard M. Ba- mch held court the other afternoon for his 80th birthday. The homage paid him in that simple setting had little bearing on his familiar role as "adviser to presidents." There were the momentary brilliance of flashbulbs going off, the whir of newsreel cameras, the ceremony of becoming an honorary commissioner of Borough Works. And there was an animal cracker, shyly presented by a three-year-old girl. The tall man in a white linen suit that matched his snowy hair leaned forward to accept with all the dignity of an elder statesman. Baruch has been an elder statesman, without portfolio, in the American way of lif« since World War I. Two and a half years ago, he said "I have come to the end of my furrow, now I am going to sit by." Now, nib- Jing on the animal cracker, he observed, "The sands of life are running out for me, but I'm not senile yet. I'll know when I am and I'll shut up. But I'm still able to cope with those fellows and I'll ke«p telling them what 1 think should b« done until somebody listens." Those fellows are the ones in Washington, and it is to our advantage that they have listened to the wisdom from « park bench and done something about it. They began listening as long ago as 1916. They listened, and the whole world did, too, with the exception of Russia and Poland, in 1046 when the United Nations cheered the course he laid out for the atomic age. That was when he said he was bowing out. Others had suggested he rest after World War 1, when he was 50. "That's supposed to be middle life," Baruch recalled, "but it's just plain youth." And it was not surprising that last month he should appear, uninvited but forthright as ever, before the Senate Banking Committee. The Baruch force and dignity was at full magnitude when he declared that the proposed defense production bill "had one major fault • • . it does not go far enough." The bill seemed sure of becoming law in pre-Baruch form before he appeared. But the quiet judgment of Baruch has •liceU through political barriers many times before. When the bill emerged, it included the sweeping powers for the President that Baruch had urged, even though the President and Congress had •hunned them. ar« no jwlilics on lh« park bench Baruch occupies. He hy! gplit, in 1948, with the same President to whom he would now give extraordinary powers over prices, wages and profits. His smiling acceptance of an animal cracker, duly recorded by news cameras, was an event more to be expected of the vote-hungry campaigner. Barucli, however, is campaigning only for America and the survival of the American way. At 80, he is still campaigning, still able lo "cojie with those fellows," and the little girl wilh the cookie is only a small symbol of how his countrymen feel about a man who'll "keep on telling them what 1 tiiink should be done." West Ain't What It Used to Be In Pcoi'ia, III., a man was arrested for drunken driving—on horseback. That is something we can understand in his day and uge. On the other hand, a report from Oklahoma was more shocking. There H man was arrested for riding his horse into a soft-drink parlor and ordering a raspberry soda. 11 would seem that citlicr the hard- riding west is going soft, or that the influence ol television, the never-never- land in which ail heroes on horseback drink nothing but sar.sparilla, is becoming part of the lasv west of the Pecos. Views of Others Have the Korean Reds Begun to Falter? The heavy punishment that is being inflicted upon North Korean troops, as reflected in news reports of the last few days, indicates that, the savagely efficient infanlry-artillery-air team developed by American forces In World War II is at last getting into action. Now thai Lhe front has been more or less stabilized, organization and teamwork have become important. And if estimates or North Korean casualties arc not grossly exaggerated, Uie slaughter is more than iiny aggressor can stand. General Mac Arthur's headquarters in Tokyo slates that the North Koreans are under orders to push the UN's forces into the sea by August HI. Current Red attacks In the face of bitter losses are Interpreted as a frantic effort to win Lhe, campaign before U.

IL had begun (o look a.i if nothing thrown against the enemy could hal(;lhefr forward momentum. There are soiinTOen.sons Tor optimism. Weeks of bombing by the Air Force have cut deeply into the North Koreans ability to get supplies lo the battle zone; inevitably, shortages- In gasoline, replacement parts, artillery and morlnr ammunition must result. In their advance, Lhe Reds have paid heavy loll In killed and wounded. There have been times when it seemed that three enemy Infantrymen sprang up to replace one I hat fell, but such losses simply cannot be sustained for a tons period of time without the results of the attrition becoming apparent. As Ihc UN-American defense line has been shortened and organized in depth, the North Koreans have for the first time come up against, the death- dealing capabilities of combined weapons. The experience has cost them dearly, When captured German generals were Interrogated after World War II, they rarely failed to mention the effectiveness of the American artillery-air team. The accuracy anri volume of U, S. shellflre, coupled with that from the infantry and chemical mortars, had been devastating. It is not unreasonable to assume that American combat techniques which drove German troops under ground would prove equally unpleasant for the North Koreans. AH we know about the Korean situation, of course, is what we read in Ihf news dispatches, But il the ncds continue lo advance in the face of the punishment they have been taking, the only |x>ssible conclusion to be drawn is that the Communists have developed a bullet-proof soldier wilh three speeds forward and no reverse. —ATLANTA JOURNAL So They Say There is more racial segregation in this country at 11 o'clock on 5unda> morning than nt any othrr ttme ol the week.—Rev.

Senator .Jenner makes clear that he is not advocal- Peler Eilson this, not havmg studied all the The Hoosicr senator's point Is that the country now faces serious crisis. It Is so critical that the government has moved to remand Harry Bridges to custody. Alger Hiss is now at liberty, on $10.000 hail, pending his appeal on convictions for perjury in slating he had not passed government documents to ex-Communist Whittaker Chambers. The statute of limitations has run out on Hiss' alleged passing of government papers. The crime of which he was convicted was perjury. Senator Jenner nevertheless points out that "Back of the perjury ther was Iraitorism." Hill Would Require Reds to Heckler The case of Judy Coplon is considerably different.

We should see a Mother inspir- ng Kim with Ihe story of Israel's rcat saints and prophets, of God's al! and choice, and His purposes t human redemption. We cannot egin to picture the glory of all hat happened In that Nazarath home. The New Testament records re- eal Mary as the greatest of moth 2rs. the worthy Mother of her greater Son. She was blessed among women because her character v/as blessed. She was among he devout souls looking earnestly of and hopefully for the coming -he Messiah, "the consolation of Israel." Her song of praise, called "The Magnificat" (Luke 1:46-55), is one of spiritual grandeur: 'My soul doth magnify the Lord, and my spirit hath rejoiced in God, my Savior." Bill the supreme revelation the greatness of Mary was in the hour of her • Sons' ..supreme sacrifice. The simple record 'is In the Gospel of John: "Now there sUxx by the cross of Jesus His Mother.' She was there in the hour of her Son's crucifixion. Perhaps, like myself, you hav< read these words, without visualiz ing the actual scene. 1 confess tha I never saw in them their full dramatic tragedy, and glory, untt during the four long years 0, World War II.

By DtWlTT MacKKN'KIK 'AP Korriin Affairs Analyst The Korean war — first conflict Inlo which the United Nations hai sent its legions In defense of justlci —is developing an unforeseen if pect which may help to solve it: racial problems that have racked not only the world but individual nations. I refer lo the fact that already South Korea has a workable mingling of races under the U.N. flap. And; that mixing race and color will proceed apace, as fresh contingents of troops arrive. It will continue until Soulh Korea has become a miniature "on« world." True. It may become something of a tower of Babel—but, to paraphrase an old saying. Ihe language of comradery needs no word*. To be specific: Hal Boyle, AP columnist In Soulh Korea, reports that more and more South Korean troops are being Incorporated Into American fighting unit.s nn R volunteer basis. These Koreans are taken over on the "buddy syslem." under which each one Is learned with • GI. The plan works fine. American Negro unlls are fighting side by side with white troops— both doing a magnificent and co- rdinated Job without thought ot olor. The same Ij true of the South "oreart units. All this fits in with the D.3. 4rmv's progressive plan to elimln- te the race Issue. A well developed xamole of this program Is seen in he Fourth Infantry Division, at •ort Ord. California. The division .as been pioneering to end all seg^ egatlon—and reports that it, worW well, • Separation of colored and whtt« unlls has been completely elimln- ited. All the men train together. ileep in the same barracks and eat n the same messes. Absolute Impartiality Is the by-word. One ot he unforeseen developments has ieen to foster friendships between Negro and white soldiers. Getting back to South Korea, ths American Negro troops are doing more than win battles with bullets, 'ohn M Hishtower. AP diplomatic, expert in Washington, makes thii striking report: "In the opinion of Washington psychological experts they (the Metro troops) are also helping to wfn he battle against Communist propaganda: they are dramatic proof :nat the war to smash Red aggression in Korea Is not a 'white man's war.'" The Red propaganda of course has a double purpose. One of Its alms Is to create racial animosities In Western nations — a goal for which Communist agents In the United States have been persistent- heart return from East, would obviously be fatal.

That propaganda will increasingly lose force as new units continue to arrive from various countries to join the United Nations Army under MacArthur. Among them ultimately will be troops from most, parts, of the world. Every color of skin will be represented, and most, if not all, of the world's religions. The Red propaganda may work In some quarters, but truth will out. You can't keep the facts from this growing army of many peoples. The result will be to strengthen the United Nations, and to strengthen the faith of East and West In each other. * i (DEALER) k A 7 1 25 V63 « K62 ^ * 10S V A 1085 3 « QJ81 + 72 k A.Q IOCS N * M W E * •5.196 C)9 1 103 3 + J 8 5 1 A KB3 2 \ » K J7 » A!>5< + K9 North t Both vul. ast Soulh I * Pass 2 N.
