And how about the tax Ependers ? Rhee's Attempts to Govern North Korea Uncalled For A situation is developing in North Korea that demands a speedy solution by the United Nations. Syngman Rhee, South Korean president, has begun appointing local administrators in cap-^ tured<North Korean communities. This is, of course, in flat defiance of United Nations edict, which give to General MacArthiir the job of civil administration in conr(uered territory, v Rhee has even gone so far as to de- fliai-e that the UN is "sabotaging" Korean interests by its proposals. This sounds R little forgetful. Where would Mr. Rhee hsve been by now without the gallant aid of UN military forces in saving South Korea? -The UN plan for the government of North Korea seems to be perfectly in order. It is usually the custom to' entrust to the military the job of civil administration in conquered lands in the unsettled period directly following combat. Then, when order^ias been thoroughly restored and life is functioning on a nearly normal peacetime basis, the people are given an opportunity to vote for their own governing representatives, from the local level on up. H the UN plan can be carried out, fair elections undoubtedly will be held in North Korea at the earliest possible moment. There seems no need for new ekc- J^>ns in South Korea, since satisfactory balloting was conducted there not too long ago. This arrangement ought to be eminently suitable to Rhee. His insistence on going ahead on his own at this time is an arbitrary and arrogant action wholly out of keeping with the UN spirit in which the Republic of Korea was nurtured. To be sure, the UN docs recognize the South Korean government as the authority for all of Korea—and has ever since the first elections were held. But that government was virtually a creature of the UN, and so now is the part of Korea being liberated from the Communists by UN forces. Rhee's haste to establish his own representatives in North Korean towns and cities is unseemly and cannot help but cast doubt on the'essential honesty of his motives. It has been the fashion of the free world in the 20th century to win wars • luibly but then lose the subsequent peace ifSobly. The statesmen of free nations all too often have seemed inadequate to the task of settling the political problems which come in the train of conflict. Rhee's stop into North Korea is the 1 first political consequence of the growing UN military victory on the peninsula. Unless the UN acts swiftly to solve (his administrative issue on way or another, a confused situation is certain to follow. Then people will begin to say it might have been betler had we let the Keels overrun South Korea and wipe out Rhee's government. No one who understands the Russian menace could really desire that, But in their disgust at a deteriorated political set-up there, some might momentarily feel Red rule the lesser of two evils. ' Korea was a milestone in one sense because our action in speeding to its military defense showed a boldness and courage the world had been crying for. It can be a milestone in still another way if we now proceed lo demonstrate that we no longer intend to succumb to the political bewilderment which so often marks the aftermath of war. There's a Name for You! Much of the news from Indo-China these days is pretty black. But there has turned up recently in that news an organization which, whatever its merits or demerits, showed extraordinary imagination in the choice of its name. We speak of the Vietnam Renovation League. This body, which claims seven "throw ALL Ihe rascals out"—French and Communists alike. We suspect there are many areas right here in America that could use the services of a "Reno' valion League," if for nothing more than to clear the air after this strenuous electioneering; season is over. On second thought, what a name this would be for a civic group to be devoted to the renovation of the Washington bureaucracy. Views of Others Major Turning Point In UN's History A turning point in the history of the United Nations is marked by the General Assembly'* adoption of > new and bold pl»n for dealing with aggressions that endanger the world's pesr.? In briefest summary the plan provides: 1. If the Security Council is prevented by a veto from taking due action on such an aggression, an emergency meeting of the General Assembly may be called on one day's notice. (An.v seven members of the Council or > majority of the Assembly can issue such a call.) 2, The. General Assembly Is authorized to make . "appropriate recommendations to UN members for concerted measures, including the use of armed force." 3. There shall be set up a "peace observation commission" to investigate and report- wherever a threat of international conflict arises. 4. Each member of the UN will be requested to "maintain within Its national armed forces elements so trained «nd organized that they could promptly be made available for service as a United Nations unit." The first and second of provisions are obviously intended to get around Russia's chronic and paralyzing veto in the Security Council. In the General Assembly a two-thirds majority prevails. The third provision ensures a constant UN watchfulness over troublous areas. Most significant, however, u provision No. 4, which would supply the UN with military forces and make them subject lo the call of the General Assembly when the Security Council was deadlocked by » veto. First proposed by Secretary Acheson. this plan was sponsored by seven nations—Canada, the United states, Uruguay, the Philippines, Turkey, Prance and Great Britain. The resolution embodying !t, known a* the "United Action (or Teace." resolution, w« adopted overwhelmingly at Thursday's session of the General Assembly after a two weeks' debate in the Political and Secunty Committee. The only votes against it were cast by the five members of the Soviet bloc, while six countries abstained. The General Assembly, representing all 56 members of the United Nations, has grown steadily In prestige and influence as the chief forum of world opinion. Now it is well on the w»y to becoming the key instrument of the free world's common conscience and common intelligence Certainly iu powers 85 well as lu responsibilities are greatly enhanced by the "United Action (or "Peace" resolution. —ATLANTA JOURNAL So They Say Our history shows that when things are going well Americans tend to adopt a complacent altitude.

Only One Thing Mars an Otherwise Pretty Picture TUESDAY, OCTOBER 24, eWITT MacKENZIE AP Foreign Affairs Analyst Both the Western and the East- rrn worlds finally are taking practical cognizance of the fact that there are in Asia countless millions of terribly under-privileged to IX whose condition I* a deterrent to stability. The Moslem slates of AsU and Peter Cd son's Washington Cofu/nn— Removing Crates Sounded Fine But Nearly Ruined Korea Airlift B.T DOUGLAS (Peler Edson is In Europe on special assignment) WASKINOTON..(NEA)—Although of the most successful operations of the whole campaign a serious boner was pulled at Ihe very start which resulted in many tons of critical materials being wasted. Some of the items, such as electronics gear, which were needed quicklv nl the slart of the Korean conflict were stored in warehouses Larsen in the U. S. ready for just such an emergency. But they were crated for loading aboard ship. In order to fit some of these ^ig bundles throu big bundles through the small plane doors the crates were rioned announced that It was going to Ignore the ban on drafting married men handed down from national headquarters, and send husbands to The rule which Is being applied In such cases is this: If a man is married at Ihe time he nils out his questionnaire and Is ordered In the.

He can appeal to (he board if he is put in I-A. but lhat Is as far as he can go. And n lot of boards are Ignoring the fact lhat a man has been married after being once classified. Prisoners Want off. This, they figured, would also save valuable weight. In their enthusiasm lo load the pianos, however, the officers In charge overlooked the fact lhat nil Identification marks, instructions for use nnd assembly and other information about the contents were on the woorlcn crates. And the crates were left back in the States. The stuff was useless when It arrived In Korea. But it didn't take long to get this 'stragihtcncd out. And from now on' they're going to package. some of the stockpiled items for air shipment.

If the manpower squeeze gets tough, It's likely they will okay it for the current mobilization. Power Behind Iht Throne Word at the Pentagon Is that As- sislant Secretary of Defense rtobert Lovetl Is really running the show. General Marshall Is only culling himself In on Ihc very lop policy matters. He arrives si his office late in the morning and leaves about 4:30 In the afternoon. The general — -!„,— ..„.. ... „,„!* sees few visitors and devotes mosl Ing married men. One Texas board ot his time lo conferences with only the Chiefs of start and the service secretaries. He devotes a lot of hi! time to afJaJrs of the Red Cross which he still heads. It Is still the belief of most In ildcrs lhal General Marshall will bow out at the end of the. year, when he will reach 70. Lovett will then take over as Defense Secre tary, and Marshall will continue a head of the Red Cross. Thai Is all right with most Pentagon officials in spite of Ihe fact that Lovett has let It be known that h Intends to keep civilian control o the country's defenses intact, am not give the generals and admirals a blnnk check, ns they thought they would get when Johnson was force out. Lovelt appears to have completely recovered from recent lllnesse; and is doing B vigorous job. Genera Marshall, nn the olher hand, shows signs of having fought wilh too many big problems, for too many years. He Is tired and la trying to conserve his strength.

This The DOCTOR SAYS Not long ago I received a touching letter from a woman who ssld she had been married, eight, years, Just loved children, and wondered if there was any hope of having «ny. This Is not an unusual problem It has been estimated that »s many as i couple In eight who want children remain childless. Doctors recognized several kinds of sterility. Many couples are only relatively Infertile. That Is. they can h»ve chlldrron but the chances of having them are not us good as they should be. Decreased fertility may be caused by such things as chonlc Illness of the husband or wife, by poor nutrition, or by Hack of vitamins, when and if such difficulties can be corrected the chances of conception taking place may be greatly Improved. The failure to bear children used to be always blamed on the woman. This Is often not correct be cause a high percentage of sterile malings are due to the infertility of the male partner. Since men arc responsible for childless marriages nearly ns often »s women, an investigation of the possible cniise of serility must, Include thorough examination of the malt partner. Tests are available which can determine with great accuracy weather the barren marriage Is due to male infertility. The man must cooperate, however. There, are many possible causes for the sterility of women whose complicated reproductive apparatus in develop refects which interfere with chlldbearlng. One of the most common causes ot barreivest; In women IK closure o( the oviduct, or fallopian tubej, which cnrry the egg from the ovary In the womb. If these passageways are closed, conception Is, of course. Impossible. However. » test called the Rubin test, which involves forcing gas through the lubes, has been devised. This test will prove whether the oviducts are o[*n or closed. If they mre not open, conception is Impossible no matter how good the health of the wife or that ol her husband. Should B. Examined The childless couple who want children should as a first step be thoroughly examined by competent physicians. When all of the necessary information on their physlcnl condition has been collected. It Is possible to decide whether corrective steps are necessary, and If so, what can be done, in many cases the sterility can be overcome and those who have previously considered themselves unable to have children are made happy by having them. This happens so often that It Is worth the effort. follows the decision* by the United Slates and the British eommott- ' wealth nations to Inaugural* j«n- eial relief measures for th« hungtf stricken areas of Alia. These moves have, of course be** stimulated by the knowledje thai underprivileged people* are «JbJ«rt to political exploitation and thuj are liable U> fall prey lo Communist propaganda. The position wai w*H summed up at an 11-nallon LilamU economic conference ju*t conducted In Tehran. Qhulam Mahommed, PaleUljn finance minister, put it like thli : "The common man has ao far hardly figured In the economic or political thinking of Moslem countries, but nevertheless It Is he wh» Is the backbone of our strength. "lie has been the victim of net- led so far. but we cannot al.'ord la neglect him any longer. Unless Ih* living standards—and at present there are none worth the name—of our people are raised, and they arj made lift from fenr.of want, we must realize that we can have n» political, social or economic stability." This move by Ihe Moslem countries will come as a welcome com- plemenl lo Ihe measure* projected by America and the Brltfsh commonwealth, for the need f»r exceeds the relief available. There ar« scores o( millions of people so underprivileged that they liUrally never know what It U to be without hunger, lo say nothing of lack- Ing suitable clothing and shelter.' "I-ivlnr; Dead" They arc the living dead, and yon find Ihem throughout the whc-It vast area of Asia. I have seen them in many countries, and have visited them In their village* and huts. One must have had this experlenc* lo reallne Ihe awfulne« of it all. Much of Ihe hunger and porerty, nf course, is the result of eonell- tons with which Asiatic governments find It difficult to deal, Th« scarcity of food Is flue In many instances to agricultural limitation*. Many things enter Into Uila altua- tlon—want of Irrigation, prlmllivs farming methods, lack of ae«d and fertilizer, Inability to purchM* pn>»- cr tools, In referrng to primitive method* I mean precisely that.
