Korean War Was Fair • Issue in Campaign Unmistakably the American people •art out of sympathy with the present trend of the Korean war. Polls show they favor extendmsr the fighting:, even at risk of World War III, or or if that ig not practicable, pulling our troops off the peninsula. There can be no question that the presidential campaign just concluded . sharply intensified the emotions of the ordinary American on the Korean issue. But it is important to realize that the major candidates did • not create those emotions. They were thert before the campaign began. Close observ- > ers of American voting habits in surveys made back in the late spring, detected at that timfc a deep-running current of feeling against the Korean war. The strength of that original feeling can be judged from the fact £hat so many say they are willing to risk » larger conflict to get this war ended. No candidate at any time made any such drastic proposal In any event, it would not be fair to ascribe this situation to the extremes of campaign oratory. Nor is it fair to say that Korea as an issue had no place in the campaign. •When the United States is committed to » war, whether it be big or small, . that war must be fought with the support of «11 the people. The lives of American* Moot be put in jeopardy by half- backing' But that doM lot faquir* into DM qmttioii kov w« got into wch. a w*r, or wb«4bar that war i* being wit«ly and «flhetiv*l)r conducted. War is not a eoura* of action w« Uk« for srranted; it ii a iaat resort. And it can b« an acknowledgment of• th* failure of other mean* short of war. W« have a right to aik why a laat r«aort was necessary, W«r« mittakea made? If so, who was responsible? To «ay that these question* cannot b« asked, to keep silent in the nam* of a unified or bipartisan foreign policy, is to throw out the window th« whole idea of political accountability. In other words, we act in this country on the theory that the men in positions of governmental power should be held accountable for act* of government which take place during their tenure of office. In gauging whether they hav* don« well or blundered, we must not make the grave error ourselves of blaming them for matters beyond their control. The whole of world history is not made in the White House. It is also made in the Kremlin, in Downing Street, and many another capital. I-jut Korea was a perfectly legitimate topic for campaign discussion. The big question now is what President-elect Eisenhower will do about the people's unsettled mood. Views of Others Quality Counts Above All New fnduslrlal planU are being constructed In the South at the iitoundlng rate of one each working day. For all this progress, the Department of Commerce still finda that, the Southern' region has more room for future Indiutrlil improvement th«n my other region In the country. The rea-iohs are simple enough. Until th« last decai* or so, the South wu wo«fully underdeveloped. Skilled workers werc^leavlng the ire* ^in droves. Too.many of our plants merely processed raw materials at the first «Ug«, so that much- of whit the economists c«ll "v«lue added by manufacture" — higher proflt« »nd higher wages for Ihe finished product — WM lost to the economy. The trend now is toward so-ctlled "quality" manufacturing plants 'with Intrlctt* processes. ' automatic machinery,, and a consequent htgh«r return to capltal.,ahd jabor. "It Is not uncommon/ • to find new mulUmlllion dollar plants being oper- stcri by only a handful of men," reports the Southern' A.wodatlon of Science . tnd Industry. One plant now building In Alabama, for Instance, wlll xi emplDy more persons ,ln its res<*rch labors-' i( torles,fand administrativeJoTfices than In Itz factory. ' f" * ,_ : -' Under th« old conception of "technical unemployment," this was supposed lo mean fewer Jobs for Industrial workers. But the converse.api pears to be true. The more automatic arid complicated the process, the higher the skill demanded and the higher the K-age. One new process, moreover, begets another. The proof Is In the-rapid multiplication of factories and the constant upgrading of newly skilled operators. This seems to he true, at any rate, in the new Industrial South. It Is the very development .— electrifying In Us promise — which can raise the South out of Us status as a kind of colonial, raw-material-producing dependency on th« Irvdus- trlalEast. ...

SO THEY SAY "Choc** Your W«o.por.cT Peter Id son's Washington Column N'ew Chiefs Defense Problem. Is Lack of Money, Manpower WASHINGTON —NBA— Money and Manpower are 1(19 two big military questions which will be dumped in the new President's lap almost immediately offer election. As usual, money Is consld- most because there has .to ^b« -'money be- there can .manpower. Defense Secretary Robert M. Lovett has been urging for months that as soon as wsstble the new President name his own cabinet officer to be in charge of military affairs. Having spent nine of the last 12 years in government wants out. service, Mr. Lovett Replacing, him will be the Num- 5er One manpower problem of the new President. Others run right through'all ranks, down to determining how many buck privates and gobs, the u. s. needs, and where they :will serve.- On the money angle, (his year's military budget is $52 billion In round numbers, Including S6 bil lion for foreign aid. The SIS billion U. 5. defense budget is divided roughly $12 billion 'Army, V3 billion Navy and $21 billion Air Force. • : ' : There have been hints—principally from Rep. George Mahon of Texas, chairman of the House Military Appropriations Subcommittee —that next year's budget would be about $10 billion less than this year's. Where these cuts might be made hns not been indicated. Truman Must Submit Xew Budget The new budget must be submitted to Congress by President Truman 'before' the new President is inaugurated/ .This Is why U Is necessary to have the new Secretary of Defense . chosen immediately, so ,lhat:he can sit 'in on Hnnl military budget revision. But if trie-Truman administration is already planning to cut the bud- jjet by $10 billion; It may not leave the new administration much room for deeper, cuts, ;no matter how ambitious the :n"ew President may be on economizing. U. S..defense ^goals are expected to remain unchanged, no matter how; much budget slashing is recommended. These goals include 21 Army divisions,'400 combat ships on active 'duty and an ultimate Air Force of 143 wings. It is not believed-that foreign aid can be cut back much until European and Asian military forces are built up sufficiently for their own countries' defense. The small decision for the new President to make is how he can do all these things for less money, keeping the taxpayers,. the admirals and the generals, and all American aileis happy at the same time. • . Reorganization of the armed services by efficiency experts has been tried before and will be tried again. One big study now going on concerns manpower utilization. It .Is being made by a newly created Citizens Advisory Commission headed by Dsvld • Sarnoff. This commission will report to the new Secretary of Defense in January. The commission's aim" will be to determine if the armed services are wasting manpower and to make recommendations on how more defense can be provided with Ersklne Johnson IN HOLLYWOOD million men. There are 1.2 million Department of. Defense employe, in administrative, clerical, arsena and supply work. This is a' ratii of one non-combat to three comba jobs, which is considered 'way- tot high The really big manpower-prob lem of the armed services comes in replacements for the armed services. Over 100,000 men are completing their two year tours of duty every month. Army Secretary Prank Pace estimates 10 million men will, be .needed by,the armed services in the forseeable future— taken to mean fo years. How these men are to be recruited—by draft, by universal military training or a combination of both—is a fundamental policy decision for (he new President. Creation of a permanent military staff for the Secretary of Defense and the reorganization of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, to separate command and planning responsibilities, are hot topics for Pentagon discussion at this time. They could lead to a new conference of top civilian and military defense officials to reappraise American strategic roles and the responsibilities of the various arms'.
