Stimson, who served under four presidents, will stand on the highest plane of America's public servants. The 88-year-old Republican, who d;'erl the other day at his Long Island home, was the very symbol of integrity and principle as exercised in public office. Hig practical attainments were sufficiently great as to insure that he would be given the opportunity to make his deep sense of responsibility felt in his country's behalf. He acted first as President William Howard Taft's Secretary of War. Many years later President Hoover named him Secretary of State. In this post he exhibited a brilliant insight into w6rld political realities that unfortunately was not appreciated at the time. When Japan invaded Manchuria in 1931, breaking the peace of Asia for the first time since World War I, Stimson called upon the world to take immediate firm steps to repel the aggression. He spoke out vigorously against the immortality of Japan's action. But Britain, whose help was vital in any counter-move, refused to follow Stimson's lead. Historians today are agreed that this supine acceptance of aggression in 1931 was the leak in the dike that prepared the way for the great flood of Nazi-Fascist aggression in World War II. When the second great war arrived, Stimson once more showed the coin-Hire and character that marked his public duty at every stage. At the aj;e of 73, he accepted the invitation of a Democratic president, Franklin D. Roosevelt, to become Secretary of War. He did this in the face of possible anger among many of his political friends, because he thought the times called for united action and he could lend strength and harmony to this country's defense effort. General Marshall's tribute to Stimson is ample proof how well he performed his arduous tasks despite his advanced age. Had he done nothing else in pub- life life, he would have earned the nation's gratitude for his self-effacing service in World War II. If President Theodore Roosevelt be ruled out, nowhere in its 20th century history can the Republican Party find a man of taller stature. In Stimsun, as much jis any man, lay the proof that integrity, ability and devotion to the ration's highest ideals are not the monopoly of one political party — as some would have us believe. In each generation or two, only a few Stimson* appear on the natural horizon. It is men like he who keep a democratic nation on the straight path to .its destiny, despite all the muddling mediocrity inevitably involved in dcmo- erncy'» workings. It is men like Slim- son who make a free nation a great n«tion, Don't Even Nod 'If You Can Help It Now that the original excitement over the "Hantey letter" has simmered down in New York's political race, the state's veteran observers are guessing that Governor Dewey's candidacy has really been damaged. Whereas he was picked as an easy winner a while back, the appraisal now is that he could win or lose, depending on how many Republicans stay away from the polls in disgucst. Joe R. Mauley, GOP choice for the Senate, never was conceded too strong a chance of licking incumbent Sen. Herbert Lehman, Democrat, lie didn't improve his prospects by writing the letter which suggested in unmistakiible terms that he was pressured out of running for the governorship by pro-Dewey forces. If Dewey should actually lose, politicians are certain to give new weight to that old political axiom: never write; if you can telephone; never .telephone if you can talk in person; and never say anything in person that you can indicate by a nod of the hciid. BLTOTEVIU.E (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS Views of Others 1 obacco Comes Next What, is a prohibitionist? Ask the first ten people you see that question mid nine of them probably will answer that a prohibitionist is a "dry"—one who would prohibit by law the manufacture, sale nnd use of beer, wine and hard liquor. But their answer would be only partially right. An all-out prohibitionist would prohibit all ot us, by law, from doing any number of things of which he. disapproves. Smoking, for Instance. If you think that Is far fetched, you are wrong. A campaign for the eventual prohibition of the manufacture and sale of tobacco products already Is imricr way In this country. The constitution of at least one national prohibitionist organization is almost as opposed to tobacco as It Is to alcoholic beverages. And many another dyed-in- tlie-wool prohibitionist, who does not belong to thai particular organization, leels the same way. Ask some of them. We hold no brief for cigarettes or beer, cigars or wine, chewing tobacco or hard liquor. Heavy drinking is more harmful than heavy smoking, of course, but both are harmtul enough. Most of all over indulgence Is harmful. Moreover, it is not our intention to gel. Into the argumml between doctors as to just how harmful cigarette smoking may be. Maybe there is reason to warn the public, if tobacco does all the harm a few say It does. There also Is a reason, we believe, to warn this tobacco growing, tobacco manufacturing state of ours that the anti-tobacco campaign —though still quiet, somewhat subtle and half concealed—is already underway. (We refer you, for instance, to the January and April issues of the Readers Digest.) •'-">""' Not long ago. down IK an eastern North Carolina county, they were having an election to ban beer. One good lady, an active dry and a local leader In one of the national organizations, was very successful in her efforts to. persuade the tohacco farmers of that section to vote against beer. We wonder how many of them would have gone along, with the lady if they had known that the. second goal of her organization was to ban tobacco, the crop from which they made Iheir living. We wonder, how many people whose money came from the manufacture of tobacco products contributed to this same organization of prohibitionists. To be personally dry and to preach both abstinence and temperance Is one thing; to be a prohibitionist is another. The same j s true of those who believe smoking Is seriously harmful. The evils ol prohibition, we believe, often are greater than the evil of that which the law seeks to prohibit. It is Lime for the tobacco growers, the touac- co manufacturers and the tobacco sellers of North Carolina to realize this fact: Though liquor, wine snd beer are the first targets of all-out prohibitionists, tobacco comes next. -HIGH POINT UN'.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 27, 1D50 Red is the Harvest Moon Peter fdson's Washington Column Marshall Plan Is Helping Italy Continue Its Fight against Reds ROME (NBA)—U. S. Ambassador James C. Dunn snys that if it had not been for Marshall Plan aid. Italy would have gone Communist two years ago. But the battle Is not yet won. As of today. Italy's Communist vote has been reduced from 30 per cent to perhaps 20 per cent. There still remain* a hard core of Commies in the industrial north, where they control the lator unions. The fight against them can still be lost. "The trouble," says Frank Ocr- vasi. star reporter and magazine I'etcr writer, now Marshall Plan Information chief in Italy, ••« that we're all amateurs. And we're fighting professionals." That brief expression wraps up the whole situation. The Communist agents in Italy knew what they wanted and how to go about get- tin?; it. Against this experienced force the United States has had to throw in well-intentioned, enthusiastic .but untrained volunteers. The Italian government has been slow in moving on many fronts. Reforms of tax and land laws and general economic inequalities that have existed for thousands of year* have not been made as rapidly as American advisers have recommended. Gcnlle Hints Only The general approach to this problem has been to make sugges- tions for changes gently and politely, so as not to wound Italian pride. Bui. recently a different approach was tried, it got result';. Exasperated at the Italian government's failure to use Marshall j Plan funds for land development, \ unnamed U. S. officials leaked n ! critical story to Arnaldo Cortesi, 1 New York Times Rome correspondent. The story was cabled back to Rome and caused a furore Marshall Plan Administrator for Italy, Leon Dayton, held a press conference in which he declared that Italian fiscal policy was retarding recovery. That Increased Italian resentment. Ambassador Dunn and Mr. Dayton had to rail on Italian Premier Alcide de Gasperi to smooth out relations.

Pass Pass ' West Pass Pass Pass Opening lead—* 3 Sunday School Lesson By WIM.IA.M K. GII.ROY, D.D. The Bible, both In the Old Testament and the New, lays great strew upon the inner life. Old Testament writers, whose words of devotion and wisdom were the heritage of New Testament writers, were constantly Insistent upon the fact that the true life did not consist in outward appearance, nor even in a display of good works. "As a man Ihinkelh in his heart so is he"; "Keep thy heart with all diligence: for out of it are the issues of life" (Proverbs 4:2X1. Not only were such thoughts constantly expressed In various ways, but a repeated and most distinctive prayer of these Old Testament saints was that God would search iheir hearts. "Search me, O Gad. anl know my heart: try me and know my thoughts" (Psalm 139:23). It is a solemn thought, that whatever we may appear to others, or even to ourselves (Paul admonished early Christians not to think of themselves more highly than they ou?ht to think), we cannot hide from God. But it requires courage, as well as faith, to face the fact, and pray in sincerity that our hearts and lives may be open to that searching, but loving, all-seeing eye of God. The late Dr. James Stalker, eminent Scotish minister, once published a sermon under the title, "The Pour Men." The four, as he identified them, may be found in II Corinthians 4:3-4. They are: 1. The man his friends see, "that I should be judged of you." 2. The man the world sees, "or of man's judgment." 3. The man as he sees himself, "yea, I Judge not mine own self." 4, The man God sees, "He that jucl^eth me is the Lord." It Is to know and be that last man. tne man God knows, that is the true end and. purpose of all a Christian's, thought, prayer, and mediation. In achieving that there are many aids to thought and devotion. The late George Ma- thcson. ths famous blind preacher of Scotland, and author of the hymn, "O love that wilt not let me go." published a series of what he called ''devotional mediations," some under the title of "Moments on the iMount." There are standard devotional aids, both in Roman Catholic and j Protestant literatoure, and there are current booklet from which many derive help. I edited for several years t h e little manual, "Dally Devotions" for the Congregational Christian churches, and one of the best known, and widely used a- rnoup those of all denominations. ) is the Methodist booklet, "The Up- j per Room." T do not disparage these, but It ! is my conviction that the best aid j to Christian thought and devotion | is the New Testament itself, and ! all other sins are of value only as ' they help to bring light and understanding to what Is there. It Is my belief, also, that much reading and mediation upon the Scriptures, even without any other aid, brings its own reward.

The broadcast from the Red Chtm nese capital said Ihe purpose of thkTT expedition was to free the Tibetans "from Imperialist oppression," Precisely what is meant by "imperialist oppression" Isn't clear, since the Tibetans for untold centuries have lived Jn near-Isolation In their aerie among Ihe world's highest peaks. We shall be more precise—if more prosaic—if we say that pelplng apparently is in process of relnslat- iiiff Tibet under Chinese ruts. The country was Incorporated In the Chinese empire during the Mongol conquest in the 13th Century. She declared hcr independence after establishment of the Chinese republic in 1912, though china never has recognized that status. Recently the Chinese Communists have been boasting that they have liberated all China, excepting Tibet and the Island of Formosa, which is seal, of Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek's Nationalist government. And now Peiping apparently proposes to remove Tibet from that category. True, there Is a Tibetan delegation now in New Delhi, fndia, enroute to Peiping to discuss the status of their country with the Communists. So naturally It Is given to wonder whether the Peiping broadcast might be calculated merely to put high pressure on the mission and get Its members Into a frame of mind for concessions. No Surprise Needed However, it should occasion naSII surprise if Chinese forces are mov^ Ing on Tibet. Should the invasion take place its main significance would lie in the fact that another country had become a victim of armed force, even as In the case ol Korea. The repercussion on Asia In particular and the world in general would be great. From the military standpoint, Tibet Isn't a great plum, because ol Us Isolation among almost Impass- aljJe mountains. However. Indian officialdom Is said to be uneasy over the prospect of communism taking over another country on India's borders. The threat, if any, would be political rather than military. From the propaganda standpoint, possession of Tibet would be value to China and Russia, it would demonstrate communism's '•hbllity-'Hl* carry through such a'program." { ' Housr-Clcanlnj; Sought . Beyond that .the Communists want to Institute a house-cleaning in Tibet, which is the world's only theocracy, where religion and politics are inseparable.

When he gels in with the ace of clubs, his suit Is set up. I Note that Rapee would have muffed the defense if he had returned a low diamond at the second irick. South would play low, and West would have to put up the queen to force out dummy's ace. Then South would have the king- ten over East's jack. It would have hen equally unsound for Rapee to return the Jack of diamonds at the second trick. Dummy would win with the ace and lead clubs. East would have to win. since West would be unable to lead diamonds. East would then lead another diamond, and South would put up the king at once. This would set up one diamond trick for West, out one diamond would not be enough to set the contract. 75 Years Ago Today Mrs. N. B. Menard had Mrs. C. H. Willey and Mrs. George. M.
