UN's Members Owe More Support to Korean Action One* the delegates to the United ' Nations have grown accustomed to their glittering new surrounding's-!n •New- York, we trust they will find time to look into some unfinished business: the lagging UN war effort in Korea. American troops have born* the overwhelming part of the.' load since the war began. Though we may have high hopes that better trained and equipped South Koreans may one day do most , of the'fighting for their o^vn land, its isinot'improper to suggest that in the meantime some of our UN allies relieve us of some of our burdens. Everyone knows that Britain already has heavy military commitments in Malaya and the French like wise in Inclo- China. But certainly they could safely re-txamine their positions as compared with 1950, when they'sent token forces •' into the field. Yet the real onus falls not upon these two powers, but upon oilier countries who subscribe to the Korean venture without actually supporting it. India and Sweden are random examptes..Their ambulance-a-year concept of aid is little short of'ridiculous when set beside the UN's aspirations for a unified world forcfe to deal with aggressors. The UN forum is the place to make the appeals for more help. Russia cannot keep us from talking, from letting the world know we believe this "joint effort" should be cooperative in fact as wfcll as theory. Nor can Russia prevent other UN nations from stepping up their contributions, since the authorizing resolutions have already been adopted and need only to be carried out by individual countries as they see fit. No major leaders in this country are wavering in their support of UN ideals. It has performed many useful functions in its seven years of life. These leaders believe we must not abandon the hops that some time it will be able to fulfill its greatest promise — that of preserving the peace. No peace agency can be wholly successful when so great a power as Russia is bent on subverting its aims. Yet, through the .absence of Russia from UN councils when the Korean war erupted in 1950, the UN was able -briefly to play the sort of vigorous role envisioned by its founders. It now seems entirely fair to urge that its freedom-loving members capitalize fully on this solitary opportunity by executing to the hilt the decisions taken in July, 1950. That means just one thing: more troops on the Korean battlefield. , Japan's Women Have Fine Anti-War Plan Japanese girls h»ve come up with * unique anti-war campaign, and reports are that it's proving successful. Hard-hit by World War II — t h e r» art 325,000 war widows in Tokyo alone — the women are refusing to befriend soldiers and openly pledging never to marry them, Officials say the move appears to be hurting the recruiting of a new Japanese army. This isn't much of an idea for our allies, for they are definitely not war- hungry. But we heartily recommend it to the womenfolk in Russia and the satellite countries. If the lasses bbhind the Iron Curtain could only put the pressure on their Ivans and Jgors, maybe there wouldn't be quite so much muscle-flexing from that quarter of the globe. Views of Others This Monopoly Should Be Illegal The gi-ip of John L. Lewis and his coal miners on American coal mining Is labor monopoly at, ils most monopolistic. With e strike once more threatened, in accordance with annual routine, It. Is worth while taking another look Bt It 'fit, a labor monopoly, this is a classical example. Unionisation Is virtually complete. The forbidden closed shop has given way to the union «hop, hut In an Industry marked by slight labor turnover that Is a distinction without a difference. One union speaks for all the miners, and Hi voice, needles* to say, is the voice of Lewis. In its alms and effects on the rest of us, this monopoly of workers Is the same 113 any monopoly of owners. and Die sort Jong since prohibited by Uw. The ( of i free- enterprise economy is Urge volume of output at over-lowered costs and prices. The Invariable aim of monopoly Is limited output at high prices, and that is how It Is working out in coal mining, where labor monopoly; with the ^blessing of our laws, h»t had tret rein , Annual Increases, easily won from the' help- leM owners, have made coal miners among the highest paid hourly workers. In the country. We »re not concerned here with the justice of this. Our concern Is with the effect on prices and 'production', which is as nilght be expected. Tht price index for bituminous coal stands more than » fifth higher than that for wholesale prices generally. High prices have favored competing fuels »nd discouraged development of expanded uses for coal. Coal production retains today the same volume is before the war, in ;jotHrast with 75 per cent Increase !n this perlooTlrrihe output volume of Industry generally. The number of miners employed also h 11 remained stationarj', though they have worked i lessening number of days. Mechanized methods of mining have raised the output per man, yet lerveci only to hold the Industry's output steady. It Is a picture of • stagnated Industry, set «part by the dead hand of monopoly from the main stream of economic progress. Consumers are denied the benefits of technological improvements In coal mining and of the competition that coal should be offering to other fuels. A new rise In pay now Is demanded, and doubtless will be won. tt Is Lewts' unyielding intention to go on wringing from this industry every gain Us discouraged owners may contrive to make in its productive capacity. His concern, as 'with sny monopolist. Is to exact whatever the traffic will bear, » strange situation In a country dedicated to a philosophy of abundance. —The Detroit Newj Unlikely Story The oilier day Bill Slevin. an Albuquerque Tribune reporter, walked into his apartment and right Into a .45 caliber automatic pistol behind which was hiding an unidentified stranger who separated Slevin from $107, then forced him into a nearby storeroom while he made his getaway.

S. to register Its membership with the Department of Justice, may not become effective for a long time. This Is the most' "'important decision- to be made under the McCarran Sub- NOWISTHETIM vers'lve Activities Control Act of 19SO, however, and It marks • an Important milestone in the 30-year -war to bring the American Communist movement out In the open. The two members of the panel recommending that the order be issued to require the U. S. Communist Party lo register are SAGS Chairman Peter Campbell Brown of New York nnd Knthryn McHale of Indiana. They heard evidence in this case from April. 1951 to July, 1052. The (ranscript of testimony before them covers 14,000 lypewrftten page*—enough to fill three file cabinet drawers. It contains material for the first real history of the Communist movement In America. In case'anybody wants to write It. The Brown-McHale recommendations, which have been three months in preparation, fill 160 pages. The next step is to have these recommendations reviewed by the entire.Subversive Activities Control Board. Its other members are Watson B. Miller of Washington, p. C., former head of Fecieral Security Administration and Immigration Service, and Frederick J. Coddaire of Massachusetts, the Republican member of the board, which has one Republican vacancy. It is expected that the full board will approve the panel's recommendations and Issue tlie necessary order to compel Communist Party registration. But it may .take a month to hear oral arguments and receive briefs from opposing counsel In the case, and to Issue the legal papers. Constitutionality to be Tested .After that will, come a long battle through the courts to test the constitutionality of the order. The McCarran Act provides that orders of the Subversive Control Board may be appealed directly to the U. S. Circuit Court of Appeals and to the: Supreme Court. So, it may he a year, or even two or three, before the U. S. Communist Party and its members and propaganda services are brought to book arid required to register, in case the courts do rUphold the board's order.. . This court test on the constitutionality of the McCarran Act has already had'a trial run.' The act was passed In September, 1850, over the veto of President Truman, who feared it would infringe on the rights of free speech and assembly. Congress appropriated no funds to enforce the act, however, 30 the President advanced the,board $60,000 from his special funds to get going. Also, he ordered' the Department of Justice to enforce the act as soon as possible, .' On Nov. 22, 1950, Attorney General J. Howard McGrath Issued the regulations for registration of subversive and front organizations. The Communist Party immediately began stalling tactics. A large number of individuals filed petitions for an Injunction against the act, which was denied. The Communist Party then filed a second suit to stop all proceedings until the constitutionality of the act could be passed on by the Supreme Court. Kcds Must Follow Channels A special statutory court In the District of Columbia upheld this position. It ordered the Communist Party to follow the channels of procedure and appeal provided In the act. , ' The U. S. Constitution and Bill of Rights provide several specific- barriers to bringing a political party under government control. Congress may pass no law abridging freedom of speech, of the press or of the right of the people peaceably to Assemble. The Communist Party professes to be a political movement. Congress may pass no ex post facto laws, no bills of attainder against any individuals and may not deprive anyone of liberty without due process of law. Treason, under the U. S. Constitution. Is in effect limited to acts in time of war. The McCarran Act attempts to get around these barriers in several ways. It does not mention the Communist Party by name. It defines a line of "Communist Action" which is subservience to and control by a foreign government. Tt provides for due process of law by which any designated organization may appeal to the courts against any orders of the Subversive Activities Control Board. The rights of these organizations to publish newspapers and engage in political activity are not deprived,-but they are required to be reported. .These are the lines for the big court battles tha^ He ahead. HOLLYWOOD —(NEA)— Behind :he Screen^ If Johnnie Ray has ils way, he won't sing in his first Hollywood movie scheduled for icxt April when he returns from \ European tour. Or In his second, .third or fourth flickers for that malter. The nation's crylng-does-pay sensation told me between shows at Giro's: "I don't particularly care to sing in pictures and the studios'that are interested In me know It. My background is acting—I did so much summer stock—and it makes me more valuable as a straight actor than a singer to Hollywood." It turns out that Johnny was spurred to fame as a singer because a bit part he played In "A Place in the Sun" landed on the cutting-room floor. "Hollywood plain told me to get lost," Johnnie wailed, "They didn't like me because I wore a hearing aid. I was told to regain my hearing or forget about a movie career. Tlie public wouldn't accept a physically handicapped kid, they said. "I told 'em lo go to hades. I proved that the public would accept me.-" Takinj the Plunge " HEAVENS to Betsy, if Denise Darcel isn't giving up those plunging necklines, midnight revelry in the gliiter spots and the ooh-la-la antics! It's a new Denise—down from the 155 pounds she weighed in "Battleground"' lo a trim 120 pounds for her role of a French channel swimmer' in MG's "Dangerous When Wet"—and she's out to be as ladylike is 'Irene' Dunne. "Now I 'ave more experience," Miss D. D. confided. "I'm no more decollete. I lohve make sexee peec- tures, but not wiz my gown open n front. Now I am wear 'igh tur- le necks. Ees more modest. "Any'ow, I 've better back than ront. Wonderful shouldaires from weemlng. W'en I wear dress very ow in back, people say, 'Ooh, Dense, you have beautiful back.' Ees rue. To me, I 've ze nicest back ever saw. So I ask een 'Olljrwood hat zey photograph my back. £ey a y,-' 'No, we must 'ave yoUr ront.' " < next, but Hay Bolger's all primed to star in the first Hollywood color musical to be made tn the three- ' dimensional process. Headlining the show at a Las Vegas night spot, Fay looked : across the vast room (as big as a ] Hollywood sound stage) and ad- ' milted that he's been talking to ! everal producers about the i 'Depthies." "Cinerama can be used for a full TUislcal and 'will be," Ray pre- •ilcte'd. "The audience will be danc- ng with Ihe dancers. The eye will move through space with the danc- rs, and when the girl leaps Into •our arms, everybody In the aud- '.• ence will want to put up his arms o catch her. It would be sensa- ional." It's Don Porter's line about the wo ghosts talking about a third, ghost who once lived in [follyvood: "He's the black sheet pf the ' amily." - ' "A year in television helped me get She cement out of my acting." Blonde Lola Albright, who recently wed Jack Carson, is spilling he beans about her reason for eaving Hollywood. Now Lola's back, with roles In "Arctic Flight" and "Silver Whip," and saying: "I thought I was on the way to something after 'Champion,' but I couldn't get a Job for six months. I felt I had to learn something about acting in ths quickest way jossible,' so 1 did 24 TV shows to New York. * "Nobody In Hollywood saw them. A'hen I came back to .Hollywood, :hey - wanted to know what had happened to me." Mannie Schwartz did It the hard vay.

As Mannie left the of ice, thanking Joe, ; he asked If he'd :Ver met his son. Joe explained he hadn't arid in •niired his name. "He's on the lot right now.' Mannie explained.

Mallott, CocittU U Millions of people cither during the last world war or since then have contributed their blood through the American Red Cross blood program. But millions of others have held back either because they thought the need was not real or because they fe.ired :hcy themselves would be harmed by contributing. First, I should like to say soinc- :hlng about the need. Few people have to be told no\v that blood saves lives among those Injured In Warfare. Remember then that more than 100.000 of our young men have been casualties in Korea. Many of them have needed much more than the single pint of blood given at one time by a donor. But thousands are back In full hejlth who would not have survived without blood transfusions. Indeed, Ihls Is one of the principal reasons for the new record low death rate among men wounded In war. But this is not all. The use o[ blood In the civilian population is of enormous importance. Blood Is literally life-giving In many human diseases, and after many injuries or accidents. The fact that it is immediately available when needed has helped thousand.'; of men, women and children utterly unconnected with the fighting front. It Is essential, too. that we have a good stockpile of blood in event of emergencies. If an atom bomb should fall, it might leave many thousands of people injured, and for them blood and Its pronucts would be the greatest single lifesaving medicine. Much as \ve . us w. c*rmot .hut our eyes to this terrifying possibility. Nothing lo Fear This gives an idea of,the need lor blood, which is estimated at about 5 million pints per year. From the standpoint of the person who gives blood, there Is nothing .to fear. The prospective tlonor is tested before the blood Is taken and if there Is any disease present or any abnormality which makes It inadvisable to take It, he or she is passed over. But for Ihe normal person, giving blood is safe and easy, painless and harmless. It can be given three lo five times a year, and when one considers the enormous benefit which this blood provides, such donations seem little enough to give. • JACOBY ON BRIDGE By OSWALD JACOBV Written (or NKA Service Keep Control of The Trump Suit Important tournaments are he ing held Ihls weekend in several different parts of the country.
