Tibet 'War' Should Awaken U.S. on Its Red China Pol icy The Chinese Communists are reported to be marching upon Tibet, the roof of the world, storied land of the high Himalayas. Of their soldiers, the Reds •re saying: "It is their glorious task to liberate the people of Tibet and help them overcome their sufferings and difficulties." It may well be imagined how Ihe 8,000,000 Tibetans, who have lived long in the independence that goes with isolation, are looking forward to the Com- ' munist brand of "liberation." It should . be interesting to watch how they respond to the Reels' demonstraLipn of affection by force of arms. The Indian government, whose Prime Minister Nehru always manages to distrust western words but see reason and hope in Communist declarations, has told its envoy to Peiping to express its "surprise and regrets" to the Red Chinese leaders over the Tibetan invasion. To the rest of the world it is not. a surprise but only one more example of ruthless aggression unprovoked and unjustified. And it ought to lead Ihe United States and certain other countries in the United Nations to adopt a sliffer attitude toward the admission of Keel China into the UN. Before the Korean war, we had let it be known that although we wouldn't promote Red China's admission, we . wouldn't veto it, either. The lielief then was that the necessary votes for admission could soon be mustered, '['lie war sidetracked the issue, Inil the U. S. has not altered its oficial position. As of now, it should. It isn't enough that the Chinese regime represents 100 million people and successfully maintains order in Chinese U-rrilory. \Ve ought to demand that Red China give firm evidence of ils inlent to live by the principles of the UN charter. The Tibetan adventure currently disqualifies the Chinese Communists from UN admission if that be Ihe standard. And they should get no further consideration until they have not only abandoned this particular aggression but have forsworn force as a deliberate instrument of policy. If they will not do so, let them remain indefinitely outside the UN, no matter how many millions they profess to represent. Toll Highways Here to Stay The other day Pennsylvania dedicated a 100-mile eastern extension of ils famous turnpike which slices through the backbone of (he Appalachian Highlands. Hy next fall another G7-mile stretch westward beyond Pittsburgh tn the Ohio line will be ready. Then a motorist can go from Philadelphia lo the western border irlthout «nooHnt«rinf t single crossing or red light. In November, 1951, New Jersey will have » turnpike running from New York soulhwestward acrost the slats ' to the Delaware border below Wilmington. Ohio has one in the works, too, which is planned for use by about 1055, The eastern seaboard is strung with parkways—with some notable gaps— ' from Maine lo Washington, D. C. Most of these roads are toll highways. They cost money lo fide on. But they pay it back in Ihe gasoline and driving time saved. And they carry a vast burden of traffic which could not possibly be accommodated with such ease on the regular traffic networks of the various slates. For a long time the federal Bureau of Public Roads has been against toll roads as a wasteful, duplicating expense which actually handicaps the proper development of the nation's regular road system. Pennsylvania's experience with its turnpike, a profitable enterprise wtiich permits regular highway funds to be employed fully on other roads, proves this argument fallacious, ' The best lest of the sense of (he which other slates arc adopting it. The Public Roads officials ought to get up to date. Views of Others Brannan's Boost Secretary firannan's boost in cotlon cxiwrl. quotas lo follou- an unexpected increase In l-ho available carry over-bear* all the marks of being too little, loo late lo help the cotton market to any material extent. Trut, prices did rise slightly on the heels of his announcement, but they still are a good two cents a pound under Ihe 42-plus peak which existed before the export curbs were •established. ! Mr. Brannan's increase was 140,000 bales- making the'new export quota 2.146.000 bales for the eight-month period ending next March 31. On October 10 the secretary set a tentative quota of 2,000,000 bales which resulted In a swift fall in the market, and immediate protests from' the 'cotton states. While the current Increase may help the situation a little, it might be pertinent to point out that it is still a far cry from > 3,500,000-bale export quota Governor McMath recommended to the White House only last week. As we pointed out before, we rio not. quncrel with the Department of Agriculture ettort to guarantee our domestic requirements' of cotton, particularly in view of strong defense effort. But we quarrel very strongly with tho timing of the move, which caught the grower at marketing time and which has benefitteci NO one so far but the textile manufacturers. It strikes us that the most significant part of Mr. Brannan's latest move is his promise to keep Ihf cotton export situation under constant review, Adjusting the export quotas as "the situation warrants." It might be well for the secretary to keerjj~s,lso_.ln constant review the fact that he has asked the nation's cotton growers for a near-record 'production' of 16.000,000 bales next year. The more he can help (hem in a lirne where a high price is counterbalanced by overly expensive, production and a low crop, the more farmers will be willing lo lake another chance .on cotton in 1951. —ARKANSAS GAZE7ITE So They Say I want, to say this of the United slates.

JORDAN, M. I>, Wrlllrn for NEA Service Many people who have experienced different kinds ol painful Illness laim that pa&sing a kidney stone U tht worst of all. At any "rate here U no doubt that .someone who ias had thta difficulty never wants to go through it again and dreads he possibility nf another attack. Exactly what causes kidney stones :E still somewhat uncertain, The chemical nature of stones In not alike In all cas&s, so that probably ;he* are not always the same. They form in R part of the kidney, and may stay in thte part without producing symptoms for A long time. Tnfeotion, jslow flow of virine, diet, and perhaps other things are believed to lead to the formation of these hard chemical compounds. When a stone leave* the kidney and starts to pass down the small, sensitive passageway to the bladder, the pain starts. This ts usually accompanied ,by blood in the urine, and by excruciating pain which likely to *?s felt in the back. At this stage of the game the sufferer needs relief from the pain more Ihnn anything else. Thta usually requires morphine, often In large quantities. Bwiid*w relieving the im- mediafc pain, the morphine causes relaxation, and may make it easier for the atone to nn.s.s on to the bladder. Unfortunately, the passaee of one stone is too often the sign that others have formed, and may start their own painful courses later on. Long range planning must therefore be put tn effect. The stone must be obtained, and analyzed chemically. A search must be made for infection in the urinary organ or elsewhere In the body. The urine r ust be tester! tn find out whether it is acid or alkaline. A study musl be made ol the diet, lo find out whether anything Ls wrong there. Pain Tan B<n Extreme Sometimes a stone does not. pass of itself, and the pain and other symptoms remain intolerable. When this happens the passage r>f the stone .sometimes can be aided by oilinc or by the U?R of the delicate instruments which aje now avail! able.

This ha* been officially confirmed by General MM- Arthur In a special report, The aituation Is tenjre—on* of the most crtcttal moments since th* end of World War IT. V Th« United Slates has called for a specEal meeting of the U.N. S«*, curity Council today to this fresh crisis. If further proof W*TR needed that China Is acting with the blessings of Russia, It could be found In an official speech delivered In Moscow last night by Deputy Premier Bulgarian, one of Russla'a great personalities, Bulganin singled out Communist China for special praise. He declared that Korea has "become 'th« banner of all oppressed people* fighting for liberation" and hinted that the tide may turn there. H* asserted that the Koreans had suffered a measure of defeat becauss America had flung into the fight all HA Far Eastern forces, and some from other countries. Uncomfortable Moment This is an uncomfortable moment for at least some of th* score of. nations which rushed in and extended diplomatic recognition to the Chinese Communist government In Peiping. There can be no doubt that the regime got great encourAge- ment from these recognitions. Now Britain, for one, ts considering can- celling her recognition, Of course the big question today is what the U.N. can do about this Chinese assault. The Chinese can b'e condemned and asked to with? draw their invading troops—but suppose they refuse? That present^ a dangerous problem. It i.s safe to assume that in mak>||| ing this daring venture, China \^ banking that, neither the United States no rthe United Nations will make all-out war acainst her.
