Bold U.S. Offensive in Korea Puts the Pressure on Russia Whatever its ultimate success, the landing of U. S. forces behind .the North Korean lilies in tKe. Inchon-Seoul area is a bold and imaginative maneuver. It's a courageous play for high stakes. The .move tells us a good deal. It shows our military leaders are willing to take big risks to shorten the Korean war and save lives. They're playing for a swift collapse of the enemy, an objective that seemed almost impossible to achieve by normal line-bucking methods—even with a great weight of munitions and men. ' Americans can well be proud of the top-ranking soldiers and Navy men and Marines who conceived, planned and carried out this assault. They all appear to have a stout grip on reality: they know time means loss of men and equipment and the expenditure of money. Possibly there's even more to it than that. So long as the U. S. and Allied United Nations forces were merely standing off the enemy against the day when they'd be built up sufficiently for a slugging offensive, Russia could .put off the crucial decisions it must make about Korea. Will she throw more and more help into the battle on the North Koreans' side? Will she move doSvn to the 38th parallel again with her own soldiers, to prevent the seizure of all Korea by Allied armies? Will she persuade the Chinese Communists to join the fight, knowing the war would then last perhaps years? It's questions like these that the Soviet leaders have got to settle for themselves. The luxury of threshing them out in the leisure of a long winter is gone. By our attack, assuming its continued success, we can front Russia with the necessity for making up her mind now. To delay too long could be to lose everything. It's a common thing these days to hear that Moscow mifovtumitcly but inevitably always has the initiative in this titanic struggle between freedom and tyranny. Let's say often—but not always. American leaders have afforded the world a timely demonstration of a fact that too many people may have forgotten, that imagination and resourcefulness in this fight are not a monopoly of Russian communism. •aying sh« should huve b««n stowed •way in mothballs • long before thai. When the ship finally was re-floated, the :Navy announced its intention to convert her lo a training vessel. It was accepted as a sort of last-gasp scheme to keep the President's favorite crapt in operation, Now we're told the Big Mo is in Korean waters blasting away at the enemy •hore with everything she's got. She's giving lessons all right—to the North Koreans. Views of Others How to Strengthen U.N.? How tilt United Nations majority can act against aggression when a veto prevents action by the Security Council has become a major issue for the General Assembly. Til* U.N. did act promptly against aggression Ui Korea, but the Security Council was able • to take the necessary decisions only because the Soviet Union was pouting on the sidelines. Had Russia's Delegate Malik been present In June, as He wns in August and September, we can Ix; »ure that he would have vetoed those decisions. To meet this problem the State Department Is suggesting that the Assembly expand ita functions to Include those which were originally assigned to the Security Council. Member nations would be asked to earmark armed forces for call by either the Council or the Assembly. A fact-finding "peace patrol," composed of representatives from tlm smaller nations, would act as eyes and ears lor the Assembly In the trouble spots. The Assembly would arrange to meet on M hours' notice. With these objectives we whole-heartedly agree, but we believe the State Department'* proposed methods should be examined with care. Evidently what our policy milkers are trying to do Is to amend the U.N, Charter without amending It. There can b« no question that the assumption of peace-enforcement powers by the Assembly would alter the Charter as originally conceived. Necessary as It Is to line! some way out of the Council Impasse, does the United States really Vise to do that by -bringing about a d« facto revision of the Charter which could be attacked as violating its plain spirit? . We think the members of the U.N. should be . enabled to act collectively against aggression in cue the Security Council Is paralyzed. They should be enabled to use the machinery of the U.N. U they wish. But would It not be preferable to arrange, for this by signing a separate treaty ol collective self-defense,. as suggested in a Senate resolution offered by Senators Douglas of Illinois and Thomas of Utah, .and as provided for by Article 51 of th« Charter itself? Constitutional changes should be made by constitutional means. Believers in the rule o( law cannot advocate that the American Constitution be amended by act of Congress. Is It not Just as improper to suggest that the U.N. charter b« revised by the Assembly? — ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH 'Mighty Mo' Gets Back Into the Act Life has its funny twists. Remember when the U. S.

Socialist In merits Senatorial Crime Committee's Work Shorn Some Fine Results By DOUGI.AS LARSEN NEA Staff Correspondent' (Peter Eilson Is on Taxation.). (First of a Scries) WASHINGTON (NBA)— There's some encouraging home front battle news In the report of the successful light of the Senate committee. Investigating, organised crime in the U. S. : During the few months that the committee, headed by Sen. Estes Kefauver (D., Tenn.) has been In action, one major crime syndicate has been smashed, 4O,persons have been indicted and the-stage has been set for the bagging of many more of the country's criminal bigwigs. There's evidence' that thft committee's efforts have thoroughly scared many of the syndicate boys and as a result they've pulled In their horns on several crime fronts. The multi-million-clollar gambling operations of the S and G syndicate have been halted and the organization completely broken up. It operated in Nfiami Beach and its leaders are reported to have had connections with various other organized criminal. actlltvies aU over the U, S. (The initials m the name of the organization have no particular significance.) According to a committee report the S and G syndicate "operated with the protection of the Miami Beach police department and of the Dade County sheriff, and apparently under cover of ft complacent oily council." Those indicted in connection with the Miami probe In- elude sheriffs arid county officials, as well as known underworld characters. ' ' \ • .' Although the S\ and G syndicate was by no means small potatoes. Its destruction Is not; as' significant in the big crime'picture In the U. S. as the 1 information which' the''com- mittee got-while going after It, and the lessons: learned from this first tangle with big-ttine operators. I( you multiply what has already happened in .Florida -as,a result of the Kefauver group's'.work. by what Is planned for the rest of the stsie.-i where'organized crime is rampant, you get, a good idea of the Job's effectiveness that can be expexlied. Tlie Florida legislature has opened its "own crime .investigation.' The governor ot the state has warned all of the m sheriffs and 187 constables to halt all gambling'within 30 days or face .suspension. And the Florida.Bar Association has launched an Investigation of gambling by lawyers. .... The decision 'to start the probe In Florida was a smart one. It wa-s widely known that big-time gambling flourished'there. And it was known that many ol the country's biggest crooks and mobsters both worked and played In the state's comfortable resorts. The theory of the committee is that If you're going after crooks, go after them on their home grounds. Next cities on the committee's list for Intensive " probing are Chicago Philadelphia', Cleveland and New York; The ''teirintque will be about as quietly as possible, question "everyone who has any Information on the rackets, and. hold open hearings when necessary. Committee Maintain* Excellent Contacts To date the committee has hai about 35 meetings at which, close tc 200 witnesses -were heard. Much o the. testimony was given in secre session, it Is touch with almost 1(W mayors, attorneys general, chiefs o police and district attorney throughout the country, getting tip and information from them. It ha worked closely willv' newspaper edi tors,'crime reporters and criminolo gists. It has effectively used th serlvces of all of the government' law enforcement agencies whic .otherwise would have had tltel hands lied in this type ol Inquiry. One of the most complete files i existence of. crime cyndicatac t° se ing put together by the commitlei Already It has proved valuable i coordinating the work o( varlou. crime commissions and law enforce ment agencies of the various states. In an interim import the commit- te gives credit to the newspapers for helping In this light against crime. "The activities of the committee have received the widest publicity on the part ot press and radio; by thus bringing sharply lo the attention of the people the existence of organized criminal operations on such a large acale they are performing a public service of the highest order." Sunday School Lesson 1»> WILIAM E. OILEOT, D ». That. waa what Haul, above all things, was—a great Christian. H* » f ai the llrst, alter his Master, U. look out upon humanity with worldwide vision, and a clear, deep, and prr.foimd faith In "the glorious gospel of the grace of Ood,' and! a p*§- slon to declare the food news of that gospel to all men, everywhere, o the very ends of the earth. A* it was, .he covered L a great art M the world of his time,'for e was an Indefatlguable traveler, :id had he lived long enough, he ould undoubtedly have acconv lished the .full-iew-of'his mission. Vhat he began, In heading vrest- ard. and bringing Christianity to Europe, others have continued, in great, lines of earnest mlssion- ries. But we owe a great debt to Saint Paul, for,, through him, first I all. Christianity came to lis. The faith and vision that.sent his determined and heroic nian to o great n mission, he himself has ery clearly defined. Said he (IJ Corinthians 5:17): "If any man be n Christ, he is a new creature: old hings are passed away; behold, aV hh<gs are become new." It was in Imt faith In the power of the gos- sel of Christ to bring such new life o any man, that he conceived ant carried out his mission. . It- is an interesting fact that hough - Paul was the last of the Apostles to arrive—(he was really he twelfth.- taking the place, of Judas), though the others had rather hastily appointed Matthias (Acts 1:26) of whome nothing further, is known) — we Know more about Paul than about, any other of the Apostles. This Is due to the fact that Luke has told the_.. story of Haul's missionary Journeys' in the Book of Acts, which includes the • biographical details of .Paul's speeches: and, In addition.
