Winston Churchill, for one, believes World War II arose thus; he calls it the "unnecessary war." Many observers contend Russia never would have goaded the North Koreans into war had she realized how the United States and others in the United Nations would respond. The Soviet Union and her satellites are today the only nations in the world . likely to launch aggressive moves of major consequence. Russia has made clear in Korea that she's willing to undertake military action to gain her ends. Knowing these things, it seems that the least the free world can do is to make known to Moscow that any new aggression will not go unchallenged. We can't just say this in general terms; we've got to be specific, to draw a distinct line across the globe and say: "No farther." , The Big Three foreign ministers' declaration on Germany therefore is highly commendable. Britain, France and , the United States pledge that they will regard any attack "from any quarter" upon either West Germany or Berlin as an attack upon themselves: That was plain speaking which ought to be readily grasped in Moscow. It means any move against Germany either by Russia, a satellite nation or by the East German Communist "stooge" government will precipitate general war with the West. Thus the critical line has been drawn in the most vital sector of Europe the portion Russia certainly views as the greatest prize she could win. And that's" a big step forward. Yet it's not enough. The line must be extended throughout Europe, through the Middle East and across Asia. Our presence in Korea makes it evident we believe Communist encroachment must be prevented there; but that's only a tiny segment O f sprawling Asia. What would we do if Chinese Reds, prodded by Russia, lent substantial aid to Communist forces in Imlo-China, or Malaya, or even India? What about Turkey, Greece, Yugoslavia? Until that line is firmly drawn everywhere, we can't claim we have dispelled possible ignorance in the Kremlin about our intent to resist. So let's draw m big red pencil line .on the map from Korea clear around to tht Baltic. And'ship a copy airmail special delivery to Joseph Stalin, Moscow. WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER ZT, 1950 Why Spoil a Good Gag? A militant woman proposes that law firms stop listing the names of dead practice is particularly bad when the dead partners happen to have been distinguished attorneys, It's misleading, she adds, because it suggests the living members have inherited the brains of their illustrious departed colleagues. Well, ethically speaking, she may have a pretty good point. But if she has her way she'll be dealing a stiff blow to American comedians. For years they've been squeezing every ounce of humor out of the tangle of long law firm names. The only worse blow that could hit them would be to have Peoria and Hoboken wiped off the map. Views ot Others When Rails Seized ' Unions Can't Lose Nothing untoward occurred when the president seized the railroads. A few Army officers look over perfunctorily. Management and rail workers carried on as usual. Government seizure has become habit and routine. There's a season for that. The threatened rail strike set for Monday forced the Truman action. It was intended to do that. The brotherhoods did not want to strike. They do want a substantial part of their demands in excess of ihe award of the President's fact-finding board. Will they get 117 If not, the experience of government operation In the past will be signally belled. Let's sec: In 1M3, and don't forget a war was going on, conductors, switchmen and- firemen set a strike for Dec. 30 when Stabilization Director Vinson rejected a fact-finding board's Sc-an-liour raise as In excess of the Little Steel formula. The government took over on Dec. 27, turned the lines back to owners twenty-two days later with labor adding 9c to Ho an hour to Its pay. Not bad I In IMS, another fact-finding board recommended x 16c-an-hour raise. When the unions said no, President Truman proposed 2-l|2c more. When the roads were seized May 22 and the President asked authority to put rail workers in the army, ihe unions capitulated. For what? For a boost of 18-l|2c an hour! The government took over the lines again, May 10, 1948, to^ avoid a strike. On July 8, the unions accepted th 15-lj2c raise they could have had in May without a strike. Inter won two more rounds of wage increases. You can't blame the brotherhoods for being convinced that, if thy don't win, they still can't lose, by forcing government seizure. But the machinery ot rail labor peace has completely broken down' and present operations are entirely on a program of strike, seizure and meet demands. —DALLAS MORNING NEWS We'd Just as Soon Have It A Dallas News paragraph says that "personally, we'd Just as scon lei Arkansas or Alaska get that hydrogen bomb factory."

Tiie atomic plant at Oak Ridge, Tenn., Is not an atomic bomb factory, it docs part of the work, other parts are done at other plants, and finally the bomb is assembled. We are told that there may be two or three plants for the hydrogen bomb work. A bomb might be assembled at the staging point for the target.

An Iron Curtain of Our Own Stepped- Up Mobilizat ion Places Women Back on Assembly Line By DOUGLAS LARSEN NEA SUff Correspondent (P<-.t«r Kdion to on vacation) WASHINGTON —(NEA)— Hold >n to your Jobs, men, they're getting ready to put the American lousewlfe back in slacks and give her a welding torch. /•'• It's all sort of secret, and, as they say here. "In the early, stages of confidential advance planning." But when mobilization gets into high gear in the next lew months the ladles will get the "come-on" sign. Tip-off on-what's coming is from the watch-dog of all lady toilers. Frieda S. Miller, director of the U. S. Women's Bureau. She says: "A striking difference between the current emergency and 194fl is the absence today of a large reserve ol unemployed males." Then she adds: "Women constitute the only sizeable laborreservolr for Industrial production." Past experience reveals that once you let women start doing sonic kind of work It's pretty tough to get them out of It. World War I firmly planted the female among the ranks of white collar workers. World War II put her in the U. S. factory for good and always. Before the last war there were about 12 million women holding down jobs In business and Industry. There were about 2 million willing to wrok but unemployed. Today there are close to 18 million women working, with 1 million classed as unemployed. Women Prefer Cash lo Cooking The Women's Bureau has a lot of wordy explanation* as to why 6 million women hung on to the jobs they got during the " war. but the simple explanation boils down to the fact that a pay envelope gives more satisfaction than a well-baked chocolate layer cake. National Security Resources Board and the women's Bureau now have a Joint study under way to see Just what the English and U. S. experience with women war workers was during the last war. And the Women Bureau on Its own Is making a study of the attitudes and practices of employers and labor unions In connection with recruiting a lot pi housewives for work In factories; - /':•-' It Is the housewife who'll .get-the call. Practically' all or the single gals who want to work are working The rest are too old. It was'house- wives who comprised most of the 6 million who went to work in war plants during the last war. In many w ays the housewife makee the best worker, too. accord- Ing to the experts. Running a home has already given her some work experience. And shes not ns gigglcy and man-crazy as the average single gal. But the housewife needs a lot of special attention from the government and the plnnt if she goes. to work. Tills attention was provided her, mostly at taxpayer expense berore, and the thinking on the subject Is that she'll need more of the same kind ol attention for the coming big call. Lots of Special Attention Uncle Sam provided special nurseries and schools for the kids ot working mothers nlong with special health services. Stores were kept open' b.ter for shopping. Beauty Support Is Gramng • JT4 .- , .• .. : ,.;.-•.' (^ For Army of UN jarlors were set up in plants and the women were given time off !o use them. Firms hired special industrial consultants lo advise the on how to handle the special problems at working. And in some areas special dormitories were built for them. Women were able to be used In factories and plants through breaking down the tasks the men did Into smaller units. Some of this breaking down process even proved more efficient than the old way. That's partly the reason why so ninny women have stayed in. factories. Another reason why so many have kept jobs is because the labor market has been short ever since the..war, with minor qualifications, and plants have been content to keep the women working at a less efficient rate of production. Just what this big recruitment <?iV American housewives Is liable to do to the already shaky American home life Is not yet under study by the National Security Resources Board .or the women's Bureau. Frieda Miller makes a pass at the problem In a press release by saying: "It is necessary that those who must make decisions about (he organization of. the life of the nation under circumstances here assumed will make certain things clear. Any plan for women's participation In a moblll/ed economy must recognize and make provision for their other essential contributions' to the life of the nation.- Mothers at young children and other women who have full-time family responsibilities must have these basic obligations honored." DOCTOR SAYS BT KDWIN P JORDAN'. M,D. WrillM f*r NEA Serrk* If sugar Is found In the urine it usually, but not always, means that diabetes Is present. Now diabetes is a conitnon disease and Is probably Increasing. It has been, estimated that there are about two million people with diabetes In the United States and about half ot them do not know it. Diabetes results from an insufficient supply of a substance, which w« call Insulin, manufactured by the pancreas, a gland lyjnt near Hie stomach. This Insulin Is necessary for the proper us* of sugar by tne hody What causes diabetes Is still somewhat uncertain, though a great many physicians feel that heredity has a lot to do with it. Cerlainly, diabetes Is much more common in some families than In olhers and can sometimes be traced through several generations. Those who live in the cities and lead se- clenlary lives are particularly prone to It. ' • Heredity cannot be the only element involved, however, as. often diabetes becomes obvious for the fhst time after a mental shock or physical Injury. A high proportion of people who come down with diabetes are overweight. Tills, too. Is Important. For most people the on-, set of diabetes is gradual and there may be very few symptoms. Frequently Increased urination and unexplained loss of weight are the first signs. The treatment Is complicated because all patients with diabetes must watch their diets and many of them also need to receive the glandular extract. Insulin. Diabetes is still a serious disease in spite of the Ire- mendous help which Insulin has given to Its treatment. Must Be Controlled Many people simply do not follow directions and their conditions goes from bad to worse. If the diabetes Is not controlled they are. liable to complications and Infections which are very serious. Sometimes gangrene (death of tissue) develops and requires amputation or some other radical treatment. • Not- all persons who have sugar In their urine have diabetes. Sometimes (he sugar In the blood Is normal but It merely spills over through the kidneys Into the. urine. This comes when there Is a normal amout of Insulin produced by the pancreas, but the kidney doesn't hold it back well enough. The questions of correct diagnosis and treatment can only be decided by a careful study of the sugar in the blood and in the urine and of the results of certain tests. 15 Years The very youngest society sets to the city are attending social affairs these days with numerous birthday parties as the chief attractions since eai-ly spring.
