Objectivity Is Needed In Exposing Red Evils Out aspect of this fight against communism in America nxjril.s more attention than it has received. It's that » lot of people \vlio rightly flecry extremes of method in digging out Heds weaken their own case by failing lo show -equal indignation toward tht Communist threat. The origins of this attitude may be many. A principal one is the lingering notion, often deep-buried and only half realized, that somehow the Communists nre not as bad as painted. This is a heritage from the days of the Popular Front — a alliance of liberals, Socialists and Communists. According- lo the theory, carefully nurtured by the Reds themselves, communism was only an extreme form of liberalism. It was an idea that died hard under the blows of Russian Communist performance. The fraltrnity of the fuz- zy-mmdtd dung to it with particular tenacity. Kveti today it is not wholly wiped out. though no one arrayed on the free- world's .side consciously gives it voice. It shows itself in the perhaps unconscious reluctance to aectpt the reality of the Communist danger, in the oi'len .secret thought that the Reds are still liotk'i- than the Fascists. One wonders how niucli evidence of real Communist purpose and character men of thi.s sort must have to be convinced. By any measure the Reds have proved their callous inhumanity, their nitli- less urge lo conquest, their complete duplicity. By all llio.sir tests they are worse, not better, than the Fascists. They are worse, too. because their bid for world dominance is founded upon the Great Deceit — the totally false portrait of communism as a movement dedicated to the betterment of humanity. This is the lure that has drawn so many well- meaning intellectuals into the Communist orbit. This is the dream whose vestiges still lie dee)) in many minds and canst- them lo resist the crushing truth about communism. These men have not shown by word and action that they understand that communism is our deepest peril, that nothing else matches this menace (o our individual and collective liberties. Until they do. they must not be puzzled that their cries against lesser evils often seem ineffective. Freedom calls for a complete, not a selective defense. TUESDAY, OCTOBER 21, 1052 South Korean Troops Again Prove Their Mettle A good deal is being said these days about pulling American troops out of the Korean lines and leaving the South Koreans to do battle against the Communists. Anyone who roads the war headlines cannot have failed to notice that in the most important recent struggle —the contest for the .summit of White Hill — the South Koreans have borne (he brunt of both attack and de- fonse. In one week's limu the hill changed hands 24 times, while the battle raged continuously through bitter days and freezing nights. Through all this the South Korean soldiers proved their met- tlfc as fighting men, as indeed they often have before, It is also true, of course, that often in the past the portions of the line held by South Koreans have turned out lo be Ihe weakest links in the Allied riofcnse. Hut mostly this was not because the Korean soldiers lacked courage; it reflected more their lack of experience and of equipment. For many months now, the U. S. commanders in the field havb been en- gagtd in an extensive training program aimed at making tip this deficiency. Thousands upon thousands of South' Koreans are being prepared for more effective military duty. Some of those units are already carrying part of the load. To be sure, the complete replacement of American and other non-Asiatic forces by South Koreans may be n long way off. And a I. btst we shall certainly have to equip and supply even the finest native troops. But it is unfair lo suggest that the employment of South Koreans in defense of their own land is a new idea. H surely would not scorn very new to n South Korean who has been struggling valiantly lo hold the summit of White Horse Hill. Views of Others South's 'Isolation' Ends Those who were aMonl.shed by (lie enthusiastic reception accorded Dwight D. Eisenhcnver in the South have forgotten their history. Presi- 'dentinl candidates have traditionally ignored the South. The democratic nominees have taken the South for granted, as/lku was at 'Jains to remind his Southern nudiences..Anri the Republican nominees, seeing no opportunity o[ winning any electoral votes below the border states, have confined their stumping to the North and West. In short, the South has been politically isolated. U was inevitable that »ny candidate who reversed this tradition should be accorded R hearty welcome. When Ike went to Birinlncham, the Post- Hcralrt of that city declared that it was the first time since the War Between the States that a presidential candidate of either major party had campaigned in Alabama. No doubt the same can be said for several other Southern states. This situation is a disgrace not only to the South, which has nursed the one-party system, but also to the political parties which have done so little to change it. As a result of It, no Southerner has had a chance of getting a presidential nomination, and only a small percentage of the people have gone to the polls because of the feeling that their votes would have no effort mi tile outcome of R presidential contest, in any event. —Washington Post.

In lEflO margarine consumption was only three pounds per person. Total production of margarine this year is expected to be 1.23 billion pounds, as compared to 1.38 billion pounds of butter.

The drone was controlled by the pilot of a "mother" plane through television apparatus that watched on Ihe playing (ricks and the tricky plays that arc executed at the two tables. When this hand was played in last year's world championship, the American pair held the North- South cards at the first table. The South player was George Rapee, who will again be a member of the American team next week. East won the first trick with the the drone's instrument panel.

Ire Crc.'iin'.s Our Dish America's milk-drinking, butter- eating and other dairy products- consuming habits ore changing gradually over the years. They in- many foreign oil-producing countries all mixed up. These countries have been doing business with U. S. oil companies for a long. time. Oil provides a principal source of heir revenue. The U. S. now points i finger of suspicion al the oil companies. So'the foreign govern- nents begin to suspect these companies, too. A recent editorial in "The Daily Star" of Beirut, Lebanon, summed it up this way. "The Arab governments are studying with deep consideration the Background of the U. S. accusations. If they lead to an unex- Jccted decrease in oil revenues, they might have to revise their attitude toward the whole oil problem. In that case, Iran's example might be taken as a good example to copy. Full nationalization frees the government, tomorrow if not today, from constant worries about prices through intermediaries." If the Venezuelans should begin to talk 'like that, it would mean real trouble for U. S. oil imports. Score Another for the Gals 'Hie Germans have introduced something brand new In Washington diplomacy. It's a ''Women's Affairs Secretary." Diplomatic missions have always had military attaches, economic experts, agricultural advisers, labor counselors and the like. But this is the first lime any embassy has recognized that what goes on in the women's world is of some importance. The idea may grow. First to occupy this new position as women's affairs secretary in the German embassy is Frau Otto Kiep. Her husband was an official in the old German embassy Washington before World War I.

Comic Buzzy Grene'a telling who heard about the electron, went r to the poles and volted. was a mistake, to be sure, but East had no way of knowing this at the time. Having already taken one club and one spade, Rapee now rattled off his seven diamond tricks and thus made his contract. The score for North-South was therefore plus GOO at the first table. Al the other table a European pair held the North-South cards. South won the second trick with Ihe king of clubs and decided to run his seven diamond tricks at once. As soon as South led his third diamond it immediately became apparent to the American defenders that declarer had seven sure diamond tricks in addition to the ub that he had already won. ach defender immediately sEg- illed his ace to indicate the cored defense. It was therefore easy for the efenders lo hold their two arcs nd the;r clubs. When declarer fin- shed with his diamonds, the de enders were ready to lake a total f two aces and three club tricks, efeating the contract. The result at the second table as minus 100 for North-South, icnce. the American team gained 00 points on the hand by being lus 600 instead of minus 600. I be Doctor Says — By EDWI.V P. JORDAN, M.
