Avoid Incidents. Stand Firm Is Solution to Red Assaults The now familiar problem of how to deal with Russian attacks upon unarmed American .aircraft has returned to plague us. Obviously, our greatest effort should be bent toward seeing that the" Soviet' Union simply doesn't get the opportunity to create such "incidents." That- means takinp triple precati- ' tions, to stcfel' clear'oC Soviet-controlled territory wherever that is possible. Where it is not, we ought to arm our planes to answer back when they are attacked. A few stiff rebuttals by cannon and machine gun might serve as forceful reminders to the Hussions that they are not yet in command of.the earth. ' • . : • Some may suggest that this direct approach could lead to war. It would be to deny'that two-way shooting is always risky business. But the danger . is not nearly so great with the Russians of today as the circumstances indicate. For, as has bten often pointed out, the Reds fight when they want to fight. "Incidents" will not spur them to war unless they wish (o make something of them. On the other hand, if they are determined to fight, they will manufacture thb necessary provocations. Once the damage has been done and a U. S. plane has been trapped in a defenseless attitude, the courses left open to us are not promising. Wfc may protest through diplomatic channels. We may demand indemnity for loss of life and property. We may demand the return of these if they are stil! held by the Russians. But long experience has shown that normally thtse devices avail little. Occasionally we may manage to ransom a handful of flyers, but that is all. A good many Americans like to think we could do more in such circumstances, but we really cannot. The thief and the kidnaper always holds an advantage. He ' holds something you want, and by that fact can pretty well dictate the terms on can get it back. To go after him aggressively is to risk losing what . you want back, and, in this case, would be to take a real chance .on major war. - It's much the same with the bully and the murderer. Unless you are ready to play the game his way—and with nations that spells war—you can only try to stay out of his way or offer limited defense. Not much comfort in thig for the upright nations. Nor will there be until they have guch etrengih that the outlaws In the Krtmlin, no longer dare to conduct their marauding enterprises »g»inst free men. Broke? Don't Worry; Burlap Is Abundant Sufferers from the high cost of living who can't find even a glimmer in the silver lining department should take heart from a recent price note., If they ever go broke enough to need one, they can be certain the supply of burlap for sack-making is plentiful. "Peak output assures' a steady supply for American users," it's reported, "and burlap prices are at their lowest point in six years." Now what about barrels? Views of Others How Not to Handle Witness Each year scores of Investigations are conducted by Congressional committees. Some get considerable public attention because of the Information they gather or the techniques they use. Other committees quietly go along ttielr way, ferreting out the Information upon which sound legislation can be based. One group which has received . considerable publicity because of Us techniques Is the McCarren Judiciary Commutes anr> !».< subcommittees. A Congressional committee has considerable authority In determining how witnesses before it will be treated and the,extent to which counsel will be available. A common criticism ot McCar'ran Commilleemen Is their dictatorial manner. Perhaps the reason why some committees get the facts without fanfare and hullabaloo.-while the McCarran Committee arouses the ire ot witnesses, can best be shown by comparing Ihs attitudes toward witnesses by committee staffers. A House Veterans 1 'Affairs committee hearted by Rep. Ollri Teagvie of Texas last year Investigated abuses of the O.I. Bill. Congressman Tea- cue started off the probe with this statement: "I would like to remind all the witnesses who ' appear before the committee ol your constitutional right to refuse to answer any question on the ground that an answer might Incriminate you. • ' This must be exercised In good faith and must be exercised separately with efth''duration. ' "I am sure that a number of you", have lawyers or attorneys. That is perfectly all right, • except we expect the answer to come from the persons themselves. You may consult with your counsel, but we do not want the counsel to answer the questions." _^;:~ Compare 'that reasonable preface n-lth (he statement ot Richard Arens, statf director of a McCarran subcommittee,'to a witness: "Where did you get the idea you hart n right to counsel before an Investigating' committee . . . We have tnffimed you you do not have the rI B ht lo counsel here. We have informed you of that seveial limes We have Informed'you thai your can be prosecuted, tried and, 11 convicted, put In Jail (or contempt of this committee." It Is true that the McCarran Commillee deals with some trying and Infamous types when It digs Into Communism. Bat if Its members and staff workers could exercise more restraint and follow the reasonable course set down by Mr. Teague. the committee might find that its work. K well as Its public relations, would Improve. —Charlotte (N. C.l News. WEDNESDAY, OCT.

I Won't say that (he Office of Price Stabilization Is completely blameless, nor will I admit it Is completely at .fault (for present high prices.) — Price Stabilizer Tighe Woods. True stars, as In England and on the stage, don't care about the size of the role. — American producer Lester Cowan.

In order to eliminate the Inevitability of wars, it is necessary to destroy imperialism. — Premier Josef Stalin. * * * The struggle In Britain Is no longer a conflict between the conservatives and labor because the Tories no longer have anything to say. — British left-wing Labor Parly leader Aneurin Bevan. * * + He (Eisenhower) (s R babe in the hands ol Bob Talt. — President Harry s.

" M ? 011 They are Foreign Minister Andrei N. Vishinsky, Ambassador to London Andrei A. Sromyko, Ambassador to Washington Oeorge N. Zarubin' Delegate to the UN Jacob Malik and nis successor-designate Valerian A. Zorin. This Is the most powerful team the Russians have assigned to any International conference. And while Ihe Russians came off second best at Ihe Olympic Games in Helsinki last summer, it must be apparent that, they hope to make "up for this defeat by a new try at the indoor diplomatic games in the new UN sports palace. Obviously, this Communist quintet was not sent to New York Just for Ihe boat ride or Its health. Trying to dope out what the Russians will .do next or how they'll do It is as futile as trying to forecast a.n election, the world series results, n football conference lltle or Ihe horses. But a fair guess is that the Communist strategy will Include another "peace offensive." That was a main theme of the Moscow conference of the Commu- nist farty. It was the sole purpose ot Ihe recent Peiping conference'. It was the line of the Moscow International trade conference, last year. • . Trying to Gel us off Guard This line Is that the Communists aren't mad at anybody. All they u-aiit Js pence, so they say. They want to break lip the trade barriers against them in Europe. They want to break up the North Atlantic Treaty alliance. They want the United Nations "aggressors" in Korea brought home. And so on. If the Russians at New York come up with nothing added to their old line about the American imperialists being warmongers who want to lead the world against their- "peaceful" bloc, the new UN General Assembly may run on as just another boring talkfest. But if the Russians come up with what looks like a real offer of peace for Korea, Indo-China, Austria, Germany or any of the other trouble spots, it could cause implications. ' •Inrtin nnd the oilier free nations ol Southeast Asia, the Arab stales, some of the Latin-American republics and even some of the countries of Western Europe might be tempted to listen to any phony siren -song that would appease the Russians. Again it is necessary to go back only to the recent Mosecw conference to find declarations that Communist Parties all over the wo*rld are to subordinate militant revolutionary tacts and play up the idea of collaboration .in popular front movements. Anything that would weaken Communist -pressure at home would be welcome to the many weak governments In the anti- Jommurilst world. This will-make t all thr, more difficult to keep trie free countries united in their opposition to Soviet aggression. As the General Assembly session opens, ,!t Is not apparent that the leaders of the anti-Communist countries have any plan of their own lo offer as a counter to Russian peace offensive propaganda'. This Offer was Trie* Before Last year at Paris they had such an offer to make in their disarmament, plan. It caught the Russians flat-fooied and stumbling all over the place, frantically waiting for Moscow to think up Ihe answers. Last year, loo, there>were anti- Communist world victories in conclusion and ratification of the.Jap: anese. peace treaty and conclusion of the peace contract with Germany. This year the free nations seem only intent on holding their gains, defending and continuing the present policies of containment. All this heavy international drama in New York is, of course, played against the more exciting domestic backdrop of the U. S. elections. The two may seem unrelated. But' it is entirely, possible that the United Nations goings-on In New* York could have their last- minute effect on the American political battle, as it relates to foreign policy issues'. Also, the UN General Assembly meeting will be going on after the U. S. elections are over. The new President might have a chance to make known some of his ideas on UN affairs before the session adjourns.
