No Early End to Korean War Despite Optimistic Reports /Everyone ».t home hopes our field : commanders know what they're talking about when they say the war it over : in Korea! , : The valiant American retreat down th« peninsula and the game stand our soldiers have been making for weeks in their narrow bridgehead and the amphibious-assaults at Inchon and other places stand .out as bright chapters, in .U. S. military history. But inevitably they «r« deeply tinged with the grimness and bitterness that goes with being outmanned and outgunned. The generals tell us in effect that we'r. starting 8 fresh page in a new chapter. But no one should imagine that it will make breezy, light-hearted reading. No matter how confident our leaders may be «f final victory, too-ready optimism over the quick collapse of the North Korean enemy seeiris ill-advised. First of all, we don't know yet that the Russians who are directing the North Koreans will not continue to pour ample stocks of new and powerful weapons into the battle. 1 If the Russians decide to do .that, some of the equipment will get through despite the pounding that : Allied flyers are giving North Korean • transport. We do know that the North Koreans have far from exhausted their available military manpower, even without drawing upon any Chinese Communist units. To be sure, these reserves undoubtedly would not be as well trained as the forces original!}- used by the North Koreans. But they might ob- tlruct our path for considerable lime. Nor can any American leader be confident that the Chinese Keds would not throw some of their battle-lhough- ened divisions fnto the fray to prolong the conflict and keep the North Koreans from being rolled up beyond the 38th Parallel. Apparently U. 5. officials think this isn't going to happen. But they don't really know. And can't know until the American offensive develops and the Russians and Chinese are put to that test. In other words, the most critical decisions the enemy must make—those which most seriously affect the duration of the war—have either not yet been made or have not become evident. So it is foolish for us to talk glibly abuut crushing the opposition swiftly. We do enjoy one advantage that might make for a fairly speedy North Korean defeat. Questioning of prisoners discloses that North Korean morale doesn't stand up well under reverses. Easy victories have long since slopped for them. They may lose the will to fight when the full weight of U. S. men and material Is thrown at them. But until »uch a collapse in moral* •ctuaijy oecur», H'* risky to count upon it. Right now it hag to b* classed as wi&hful thinking. We've got to assume, for our own wfcly, that the enemy will be as tough in defeat as he wag in victory. We've got to expect the worst, if it doesn't happen that'll be our good luck, Truman Gives Out Some 'Handy' Advice President Trutnan has plenty.of detractors in this country, but none of them contend he isn't a good, politician. So when he hands out political advice, it probably ought to be accepted. The oilier day h^ told Senator Ben- Ion, Connecticut Democrat that the way to gel elected is to shake as many hands us possible. Mr. Truman suggested. 25,000 hands as a nice round figure. Who dares lo say this formula's wrong? The President applied it in 1948, and earlier than lhat in his second senatorial fight buck in 19-10. Both times he won over tremendous odds. Mr. Truman was talking lo Benton, but the Republican opposition might well take nole. Handshakers are usually fighting candidates, and the only way to defeat a fighter is lo fight back just as hard. Looks like an awful lot of hands are going to be wrung between now and November. Views of Others Russian Plane Reveals The True Enemy in Korea true part in the Korean war may be at least partially unmasked a& a result of United Nations forces shooting do*a a plane with Ruislan markings and a pilot in Russian uniform. The plane had fired on UN naval force! off tht Korean coast. Thli concrete evidence nhould make clear to people everywhere what those miblinded by enemy propaganda have long since realized: that tire North Korean* are merely puppels of Moscow and that their strength /or the long pull 1* 'in direct ratio to the amount of help they get from Russia. Vf« havt had enough ot tunhemiwis like "Soviet communism" *hen what we mean I* the Russian dictatorship. It is Russian aggression we are lighting In Korea. The «cx-,ner all the world can realize that, the stronger our hand will be. —ATLANTA JOURNAL Car Owners Walking More. Some of our heavy-caliber, long-range scientists have told us that men's legs eventually will become just appendage* because they don't walk enough. Maj-be so, but a Irjiffle- study made by the Bureau of public Rrjods^says it "ain't" no, ao <»r as folks living in the cities are concerned. The argument goes like this: Became of the Inability of cities to solve their parking problems motorists are forced to walk farther and farther to reach their downtown destinations after park- Ing lliclr cars. The study also shows that as cities grow the •upply of curb parking space decreases proportionately. Curbs are limited and as the downtown area grows vertically more curb space is restricted for service In connection with adjacent buildings and tor the movement of traffic. "And, as any irate motorist can testify," says the report, "off-street parking facilities have not developed in a compensating manner, tor cities of more than 260.000 population have less than one-half as many total parking spaces per capita as cities of less than 100,000 population." Tin nine cities of less than 25,000 population were found to have as curb and olt-stceet parking spaces for every 1,000 residents. In cities of 50,000 to 100,000 population there were 57 spaces, while the major cities over 500,000 had only 12 spaces per 1,000 residents. It's heresy to say so but according to accumulated evidence parking problems are part of the price we pay for what we think is the ideal life -city living. But they do give a class of experts 3 lot to guess at. —ARKANSAS DEMOCRAT So They Say Tills is no time to defer the profit dollar while we are drafting men.

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 1950 Many Reservists and Draftees Bitter Over Being Called to War «>• DOUGLAS I.AtlSKN NEA Staff Corre.-spornlont (Peter Kelson is on vacation.) WASHINGTON — (NBA) — Dc- [ense officials are concerned over the attitude of the men who arc being drafted and called back into active duty. Naturally there are as mnny different reactions as there are men being called up. But a sort of resigned bitterness about the whole tiling seems lo be the typical feeling. On top of that, reports from Selective Service headquarters indicate the rate of men trying to dodge the diaft by various means tsihish- ti lhan World War II. And (he machinery set up by the services to consider deferments from calls to active duty is helnis swamped. As far as the services go the worry is that reluctant recruits mlRhl not make good righting material nnrl that the future reserve programs are going In need some severe overhauling. Letters from' men .soo.i to go in and interviews with them, tell the story. Here is a typical letter froai a man in nn nrsau- i<-«i reserve unit who-has just gotten hi* cull: •When .they signed me up they lea us lo believe that it was just a question of march a couple of times a month and set, paid for it, And fn the case of war everybody would bf. in and I'd be ahead of the other fellows, ' Nnw I've been called up .inrt :vcrybor)y else Is staying home. In spite of what they tell me about ]ob guarantees when I get back I know lhat th stayed out ot the organized reserve ivjll get the promotions while I'm Er>ue and a couple of years of my li/e will have gone for nothing as fnr BS my earning power Is concerned. Believe me. this It the end of any reserve units for me and plenty ot other guys In my outfit." It's unfortunate, but what he says has P. lot ot truth in It. Another reservist, a navigator, who has Just received his call, stales his opinion: "They got me and I know it. I'm coins; in but they can't make me like It. I'd feel better H I didn't know about all the profiteering, black markets and graft that goes on while a few of us out there do all Ihe f Anting. We didn't knoiv about those things last time, but we sure do now." news ot strife, within the. services sinceilhe war and Ihe more recent bitter denouncements of former Secretary of Defense Louis Johnson and Secretary ol State Achesnn haven't helped the attitude of the draftees and reserves who face service. A Marine reserve captain makes this typical comment.: "Las', ivnr when you led men on beaches you were convinced you were part of the hest-equipped, best trained fighting force In history. And .you thought you were ivinst the world for freedom. This mdft it easier when you men were lied" and wounded. "1 don't know how I'd leel now. seeing- my men rile because maybe .squabble In the Pentagon had 5i;l(ed in not enough of the • --— - a — ~..— . n>j«'istu .11 nut c:jiu[i£[i 01 one rt^nfc ie smart guys who | kind' of bazookas. Or maybe having si tht feeling (hot this whole thing was just a mistake made by the State Department's striped pants boys. I don t know what I'd say if my men were to ask me about these things." Why Are We Ftshlln B 7 As a result of the prominence given to international affairs since the war. many ot the young men about to be drafted are pretty savvy about the world situation in general. This probably inspired the following comment from a youngster who had just received his notice to report (or induction: "It probably wouldn't have seern- ed so bad to be drafted to fi?ht the Nazis. We knew we hart to fight them. But I'm not so sure about fighting North Koreans. I'm just not sure why I have to fight." And another one from a boy about to be drafted: "My father fought to save the world for democracy. My brother fought to preserve freedom But they haven't tow me as yet what I'm supposed to save." Military men, commenting on these attitudes, say that enthusiastic patriotic fervor has always been exaggerated as a factor in why men accept service In the past. "They go because they gotta go." one officer says. But the experts who are most concerned with this attitude do admit that that job of whipping up morale, and fighting mood in the men taken today Is goinc to be tougher than it ever has been for the reasons given here. It's a Job which will require a bi^ sincere effort by Ihe services. Big Three's Action In Germany Strategic present- society.

Indeed, Ihe Big Three say blrnily that, any attack on Berlin will be regarded as an attack on them as occupying powers. •• This means, so far as present Indications go. that the old Reich will remain divided upon its present, lines indefinitely. Russia's eastern zone of 46,500 square miles, with its population of n.300,000, will continue as a comrmmized satellite of Moscow. The western rone — 06,300 square mile.t, with a population at 49,700,000—will function separately under Its Bonn government, with "the Big Three continuing occupation.

Ion? rttscusslcn ot this problem France -emaintd firm In a refusal to agree to such rearmament of a Germany; which three times within 100 years had attacked her. However, Germany isn't lo be left militarily impotent for defense Purposes. She Is lo be allowed to create mobile police formations, and such forces can be very effective. This would seem lo be a shrewd move on Ihe part of the Big Three It not only strengthens the general defenses of Western Europe, but It niay be expected to give x fillip to me morale 'of the Germans. They are a proud folk who would resent bitterly being utterly dependent on Ihelr conquerors for prolecllnn. This same point about morale also applies to the Allied decision that Western Germany shall be allowed to handle her own foreign relations, which thus far have been dealt with by Ihe occupying powers. One of the most Important Allied decisions Is to foster the rebuilding of the German economy and integrate it with that of Western Europe. This means, among other things, that production In the great._ Ruhr steel center will be speeded uplf to bolster Western military de-"" fenses. ; The agreement with Germany lakes the place of the peace treaty which should, and could, have been signed long ago If the Weslern powers and Russia could have come to terms. Even nox l.he Big Three fmeign ministers have little hope of an early agreement with Moscow on a treaty. Coincident wllh this German development comes indication that the Big Three are going to speed up the creation of a. unified army for Western Europe.
