No Magic Formula Explains Our Present Prosperity To charge nny responsible American jioHucal leaders with cither seeking or welcoming war as a means of maintaining prosperity is to strike pretty low. whatever our ilifferaices, no man of human sensibilities wants to .see fnl pny checks purchased al the price ol young men's lives. Attacks on the Administration that carry to this extreme ought to be eml- tcl forthwith. We have already had too much of (Iiis kind or thing. Yet it is not unfair io point out that our greatest wave of prosperity — the boom that began in 1939-<10 and is still going — has for (lie most part been an accompaniment of war or the upsurge of civilian output in its immediate aftermath. The Administration is fond of harking back to the Great Depression, and of claiming credit for curing it. Yet it is a provable fact that the Democratic Party did not solve the basic element of the depression -unemployment. In 1930, .iust before \Vorld \Var [I began, the United States still had eight million people without jobs. Historians generally sympathetic to the aims and accomplishments of (he Roosevelt era concede this freely. In tlit most practical sense, the depression was cured not by remedial New Deal measures but by war. The real essence of the New Deal was a series of social reforms designed to prottct farmers, workers, homes owners and others from the devastating effects of depression. But in constructing this protective framework, the men of (he New Deal never found ihe formula for stimulating the economy to full product ion. Sinct war descended in late ia;i9, we have never been beyond its shadow. The flush of early postwar times reflected pent-up buying power held back hy war. Here and there signs developed of a real tapering off, but before any conclu- ,sive evidence could be had (he Korean war sent us off on another big upsurge. Today the tntire economy is on a vastly greater scale Ihan in 193H. All kinds of legal safeguards exist to shore up sagging income, as for example farm price supports. Possibly there are now elements at work which can keep I h fe economy on a reasonably self-sustaining basis with out the. stimulus of war or its preparations. All anyone can fairly say about this important question is th-it we do not have the answer. The idea has never been It'stof!, and it cannot be until we are free of war and major defense activity that is close to it. In the meantime, the Democratic Party ought not to bs allowed Io claim it has some magic formula Io assure prosperity. There is no magic in this boom of ours. Let the Campaigners Take Up Real Issues A sfalomuit issued by 22 Republican »m\ Democratic lawyers Die other day -should dispose once and for all, as a campaign issue, of Hie .so-called Hm deposition. Adlai Stevenson was subpoenaed during ihe first, trial of Alger Hiss. Unable because of official business to testify in person, Stevenson complied with a request for a deposition. In it he testified that from the speech of persona who bad known llis s he concluded that the defendant's reputation was good. This was scarcely sensational news at the lime. Miss obviously had enjoyed a good reputation among many people before his real character was exposed. liicbard Nixon endeavored in a nationwide lelevision broadcast to prove that Stevenson's lack of foresight makes liini iimvortliy to root Conmnmists out of the federal government. The statement of the lawyers slates that in their view "The governor acted properly in this matter and did what any good citizen should have done under the circumstances." The campaign debate may now return to issues, of which there are plenty. Too Many Fight Too Long Tryjfve Lie, secretary-general of the United Nations, asks for a "more equitable sharing of the burdens" of the Korean war. \VhiJe he doesn't go into detail on what he means by this, it is pretty well known that he is concerned about the fact this country is carrying the big load in Korea. Jle has even appealed to other countries to send more forces. So it seems certain lhat what Mr. IJe wants is the same thing wanted by virtually all Americans — some kind of readjusting of the Korea burden which will reduce the number of American troops on the line. Too many of them have fought too much for too long. Views of Others Lower Voting Age This may be the last, presidential election m which almost all voters are al least 21 years ot age. In Georgia. \iy constitutional amendment adopted In 1043, 18-year-olds now vote. The Georgia example has not been followed by any other state so lar, but now Gen. Eisenhower and Gov. Stevenson have both come out for granting the franchise to 18-year-olris. "If they're old enough to light." Jt has been .said, "they're old enough to vote." (The present lower age limit, (or draft registration is 18; for induction after oil available 19-year-olds have been culled, IS',--.} "They're better quallified to vote (at 18) today than I was nt 21," declared Sen. Kef- auvcr during his camapign for the 1052 Democratic presidential nomination. When the New World «•:« colonized, 21 years had become Ihe age of legal maturity for all male Mibjccts ot the British crown. The exact rea- jons for tlial general Anglo-Snxon acceptance of 21 «s the age level for adulthood arc obscured to the history of Ihe Middle Aces. The 14th Amendment to the Constitution provides that the representation of any slate In the national House of Representatives is to be proportionately reduced if that state denies or abrirtKCs Ihe right to vole, except for participation In re- hellion or other crime. t« any of Its male inhabitants who arc citizens ot Ihe United States and nre 21 years of asr. This Implies that. 21 years is the ape of political maturity, but the implication could ot course be nltwcr) by stale nr-tlon or by a new amendment to the Constitution. —Lexington <Ky.> Ker.ilri.> SO THEY SAY There is no doubt in my mind thai If the Kremlin thought they could win World War HI without loo much damage to themselves, they would not hesitate to star!

Overheard: "He looks ilke a summer replacement for a test pattern." the Prims Club boss." where I'm Die SV A S H 1 N O T O N —<NEA>— Though the celebrated iidelands case has been considered as strictly an American dispute be- ween Ihe federal government and :he stales, it has a number of mernational angles which haven't tieen given much publicity. Even more unique, perhaps, is Ihe fact that the California gam- ship cases set a precedent which may have some bearing on ownership of the off - shore oil rights. In those gambling ship cases, it -.vas held that the vessels anchored beyond the three- mile limit were outside state Jaw jurisdiction. I'eler That finding is one basis for the U. S. government claim to the oil rights: of the submerged lands of the Continental Shelf, beyond the three-mile limit. This is fairly simple, provided it is possible to determine where the Ihree-inilc limit is. In the case of a regular coast line, like that ol Texas on the Gulf ol Mexico, it's easy to draw the line. But in the cases ul Louisiana and California, with irregularities on the coast line and off-shore islands, the case gets tougher. Here the dispute gels into international law. The principle accepted by the U. S, government was adopted lit the conference for the Codification of International Law. held at The Hague, Netherlands' in 1030. It was agreed that the base line for the three-mile Marginal Sea Is the low-tide line, following a regu-1 lar coast with indentations not equivalent to bays. The base line is not drawn from headland to headland. How the Base Line Is Determined In the case of an irregular coast with tleep bays, the base line is drawn across the opening ot nil bays less than 10 miles wide. In Ihe case of bays more than 10 miles wide, Ihe line is drawn across the opening at Ihe first points where their width is not greater than in miles. All (iiis fine international law Rot its first big test in what is known as the Anglo-Norwegian fish case, which has now become of great importance in settling the U. S. Iidelands oil case. To protect its coastal fishing waters, Norway in 1935 drew as its Marginal Sea limit a. straight line four miles out from another line that was drawn from point to point on its irregular fjord-cut shove. A British fishing trawler was picked up inside tiiis Marginal Sea. Norway protested and took the case to the International Court of Justice. The British government resisted, arguing that the 10-mile international law should apply. But the International Court ruled in Norway's favor, 10 to '2. Tile Court's finding was based on the contention that a coastal nation could choose any base line it wanted, it did not dc- j part too greatly from the direc- i lions of the coast. Also, the peculiar geographical and economic cir- cmnstanrcs gave Norway justification for the line it tind drawn. When Rep. Samuel W. Yorty iDem.. Calif.) caught up with this 1351 decision ol the International Court, he seiv.ed upon it us a precedent by which the United States could claim the widest possible Marginal Sea Met of territorial waters, before any other government could move in. Adoption n! this policy would, of course, strengthen California's claim io all the Marginal Sea and Continental Shelf waters. The line could be drawn out beyond the Cataiina and other islands which lie. as much as 100 miles .off the California coast. Oppose Certain Aspects The U. K. State Department and the U. S. Navy, for the Department of Defense, argued against this point of view. Undersecretary of the Navy Francis P. Whitehair presented the point of view that the United States and all other maritime nations believing in freedom of the seas had traditionally opposeil all efforts to restrict the free navigation of its warships and merchantmen. By reducing the claims ol all nations to the three-mile limit, the range of these ships was Increased. The advantage of this policy to the United Slates was made ap parent in the Korean fighting. If Communist China were to establish a claim to the Korean Sea as territorial waters, U. S. warships could not patrol the area. Rep. Clair Engle (Dem., Calif.) is chairman of a House subcommittee which is now investigating this whole question oi Marginal Sea limitations, as applicable to I the Iidelands oil case. It is bound | to come before the new Congress. 1 no matter who wins the election.

I'm sure that everybody begins ill) the correct play—a low club 'om the dummy. It would be very lollsh to put up dummy's king, ilice West wouldn't dream of lead- >g the queen of clubs if he also eld the ace of that suit. East could have been a hero by iking the ace of clubs anyway, nd returning a spade. When the and was actually played, East idn't even dream of this stunt, or is it likely that anybody would 0 so in actual play. Declarer uf/ed the next club. McPherran's next maneuver was 1 try for a heart ruff in the dum- ly. For this purpose he cashed le ace of hearts and then made le key play of the hand. If you're olng to mutch his play, now is he time to think and think hard. McPherran came up with the ight answer by leading (he queen f hearts. West had to win this rick with the king, and was then elpfess to defeat the contract. If e failed to return a trump, de- larer was sure to get a heart rutf the dummy; and if West re- timed a trump, he would lose his rump trick. Note that declarer loses his con- ract if he leads a low heart on he second round of that suit.
