10-Mar.T7,1959 Redtands Daily facts Eisenhower Never Forgets The Lesson Of Korea If President Eisenhower has a motto on his office wall it must read: '-Remember Korea." It is by that admonition that he shapes his responses to "the emergencies manufactured by the Soviets which follow one another like beads on a string." The lesson of Korea was that the United States must never permit the Soviets to detect even a shadow of doubt that we will stand firm. A speech by the then secretary of state, Dean Acheson, permitted the North Koreans to believe that we would not fight to resist aggression by them against South Korea. They were emboldened to strike. Last evening the President went to the American people by television to speak in the now familiar pattern of his response to Soviet threats. It was a speech quite parallel to the one he made September 11. 195S when he said: "The United States shall never timidly retreat before the threat of armed aggression in the Formosa straight ... A western Pacific Munich would not buy us peace or security." He held out hope that "diplomacy can find a way out.*' This time the Communists had chosen to shift their threat half way around the globe—from Quemoy to Berlin. This time the President's answer was the same: We shall stand firm. We shall not desert our allies. We shall not permit Russia to break its treaty promises and to dictate the future of Germany. In so stating the President refreshed the story of Germany and Berlin, reminding his countrymen of the true issues and showing that our position is worth the risk of war. He announced in a way that all our allies can hear that we intend to stand firm for the principle of independence—of mutual security. And he told the Communists in unmistakable terms that the United States will not be intimidated. Yet, there was an element of compromise in his speech on behalf of the process of negotiation. With good reason, based on experience at Geneva, the president has no faith in ending the Cold War by mere talk among heads of states. Deeds—not words—count in his book. The Russians must indicate good faith by what they do. not merely by what they say. Withal, he conceded that he would attend a summit conference if negotiations in the coming . months justify a meeting of Khrushchev, Eisenhower, Macmillan and DeGaulle. That is certainly a conciliatory position, yet one that yields not one iota of principle on the Berlin issue. In so proposing he did not offer an opinion as to whether his course would avoid war. He did not repeat his optimism of September 11 in which he correctly foresaw a cooling off of the Quemoy crisis. He contented himself with the statement that standing firm is the only sound May to discourage war. In the same speech the president put in a pitch for his foreign aid bill as essential to free world security. That is harder to sell because it is harder for the people to understand. And it is vulnerable to the political ; attack which the Democrats in Congress are now making. More easily presented to the people is the Administration view of what constitutes an adequate defense establishment. The president flatly stated that the claims of his Democratic critics "simply are not true." He supported his arguments with detail, including televised lists of U. S. missiles. But in the end, most of the people have to judge of the men who are making the decisions, rather than the decisions which they do make. Without boasting, the former general who conducted the "Crusade in Europe" against Hitler, noted that he had spent his life in perfecting his military judgment. It is pretty hard for his opponents to claim that he just doesn't know what he is talking about—that he is putting dollars before security. There is no argument quite like the appearance of Mr. Eisenhower on your living room screen asking you to believe in his personal sincerity and his military wisdom. The Newsreel Hollywood's experience is that the ideal marriages crack up the soonest, which is reassuring to those of us who started out 20 years ago with everybody wondering what in the world she saw in him. Space suits for wear by the first travelers to the moon are interesting in design, but we've got to make sure that they are the drip-dry kind that won't require weighting down the rocket with a steam iron and an ironing board. Now that a British firm has given Nikita Khrushchev a bright blue bathtub, what else is there for even his ambitious nature to want? Young Henry Ford, it appears, plans to market a small, inexpensive car, which has been a good idea ever since his grandfather thought of it. Both political parties are reported to have intensive programs for wooing the senior voter. But don't most Reople, by the time they're 65, know whether they're a Republican or a Democrat? The fellow who anxiously watches the little numbers light as the elevator moves up or down is the kind who wants to know exactly where he is every second of the day and will never betray his country or run off with a blonde. With a Grain Of Salt By Frank and Bill Meere Fifty years ago, come next September, Prof. S. Guy Jones set up beakers and test tubes in the Baptist cliurch kitchen and started teaching chemistry. That was one incident of the academic birth of the University of Redlands in l 'J09. In this 50th anniversary year we find ourselves periodically turning back to ••Redlands: Biography of a College." There Dr. Lawrence K. Nelson set down many small but illuminating incidents. He also pieced together a remarkable mosaic picture of the school. This book should be required reading for Redlanders. It belongs on the shelf along with Mrs. Edith Parker Hinckley's "Banks of the Zanja". The surprising quality in I) r. Nelson's history book is the drama. It's a cliff hanger. . . a soap opera if it weren't true to life. Kven before the birth of the school there were so many miscarriages it did not look as il it would ever be actually established. Then when the organization was formed and some buildings were erected, one crisis followed another. Dr. Nelson does not minimize them: "The Freeze of 1911 was but a feeble prelude to the grisly Terror That Walked by Night in January 1913. . . This nightmare night drove Redlands residents elsewhere, deeply wounded business, bankrupted growers. It lclt the University lighting imminent death." "World War 1 began. . . the University continued absorbed in its own educational and financial problems. The latter became increasingly acute. . . By October 191 .1, the situation had grown so critical that. . . the college was five months behind in all faculty salaries. Some prospective large givers were hesitating, fearing the University could not survive." "After the Prosperous Twenties came the Bitter Thirties. . . Hope that emergency action could be discontinued at the end ol one year proved illusory. Instead, on March 1. 1933, the Committee on Retrenchment. . . recommended the discontinuance from the service ol six persons and the employment of one and a horizontal additional cut in all salaries of 10 per cent." In 1951 President George Anna- cost foresaw seven lean years. Men studying on the GI bill were thinning out. The draft was taking 18 year olds for Korea. The University of California at Riverside offered new competition. War. Freezes. Depressions. Untimely deaths. All have stalked the stage. But somehow the heroes have always come from the wings to save "the dear old U. of R.", as the song calls it. On the campus. Dr. Nelson finds again and again the devotion and self-sacrifice of the faculty, helping to pull the school through. He takes admiring note of the devoted George P. Conner, for years the business manager, and of the presidents including the first. Dr. Jasper Newton Field, and Victor Lcroy Duke. Off campus, the heroes have invariably been people with whom the college is a labor of love. They have struggled to keep it afloat in times of adversity. In fairer weather they have been able to obtain donations large and small, necessary to building the fine school that we have today. While an outsider is likely to be impressed by the physical maturing of the school, as seen in the splendid buildings on the campus. Dr. Nelson emphasizes the maturing of tiie faculty. And what a difference there is between those primitive, pioneering days when Prof. Jones had to begin in the Baptist kitchen and the present day when professors study music in Vienna and political science in Holland, do historical research on the isle of Cyprus and biological research in Uganda. Through' the eyes of 1909 the faculty of I9J 9 would indeed appear sophisticated. WOMENS CLUBS MEET VERSAILLES.

Bennett KNX—Still Bill 4:30 KHJ—Geo, Fisher WASHINGTON <UPI>—A large and unequivocal "no smoking" sign hung on the House Commerce Committee wall, right over the work tables for clerks, press and witnesses on which the committee had thoughtfully provided ash trays. This set the proper contradictory tone for the day's hearing on a proposed new fair trade law to replace one passed in 1952 and subsequently chopped to pieces by adverse rulings in many state courts. The ash trays started filling up. The hearing room got blue with smoke. And people kept looking at the same set of conditions and arriving at opposite conclusions. Ignorance No Trouble Bui... "It ain't people's ignorance that causes so much trouble," witness Kd Wimmer quoted an unidentified sage as having once said. "It's just their knowing so darn much that ain't so." Wimmer is vice president of the National Federation ol Independent Business, Inc., of Cincinnati. He said he thought he represented about 120,000 small businessmen around the country but he couldn't state for a fact just how many. "Under today's conditions," he told the committee, "you can lose 2,000 in 24 hours." That gave Wimmer a perfect opening to say why he was here. Namely, that cutthroat competition from discount houses and big chain stores was killing small business, and he wanted a law passed to let manufacturers set minimum prices at which their goods can be sold. May See Eye To Eye Chairman Oren Harris <D-Ark.> apparently thought Wimmer was right. He already hfcd introduced a bill Wimmer wants Congress to pass. He also had sent a copy downtown for Federal Trade Commission comments. These he didn't read, but merely put in the record. After taking a private look at the FTC's letter to Harris I'm not surprised. From what this agency said, you wouldn't have thought it was talking about the same bill. "The fixing of retail prices." said FTC Chairman John W. Guynne "is inconsistent with the American system of free competitive enterprise, and is contrary to the public policy expressed by Congress in the anti-trust laws of 1390." Wimmer said FTC was preju­ diced. He also thought Rep. John D. Dingell (D-Mich.) had a painfully wrong slant on the btlL Explains Difference; "What you want is just a floor under prices," Dingell told Wimmer, "so everybody has to pay more, with no opportunity for getting a competitive price." "We're saying a floor under cutthroat competition — not a floor under prices," was the way Wimmer put it. Wimmer insisted sellers would give buyers a better break in the long run with fair trade than without it. Din'geJI's answer was interrupted by the chairman's gavel as he prepared to call the next witness. "I think what Dingell said was that this sounded to him like the pleas of the wolf, looking out for the welfare of the sheep. ROCKING CHAIR HONEYMOON NKW ORLEANS (UPU—Thomas L. McKnight, 83, and his 90- year-old bride honeymooned today in front porch rocking chairs at home. McKnight said he proposed to his new wife, the former Emily Mitchell, shortly after she suffered a nearly fatal heart attack 10 days ago. She is a sister of his former wife. A thoroughbred horse is any horse. eligible for registration in the General Stud Book. This book, was begun in England in 1791. It attempts to trace the pedigree of .famous race horses for at least a century before that time. From that time it has been accurately kept. The thoroughbred has been developed almost entirely for the race track, emphasis having been 1 placed on speed. • O Encyclopedia Brltannlca THE FAMILY DOCTOR Amebic Dysentery Afflicts People The World Over By Edwin P. Jordan, M. D. A number of readers have recently asked for another discussion of what is commonly called amebic dysentery. This is not surprising, since even in the United States about one person in ten is thought to harbor this small animal parasite. It is a much more important health problem in other parts of the world. Usually the ameba cause-: d; . ficulty by attacking the digestive tract and causing int.vaiiU '-.i' dysentery. I* can . however, lodge in other parts of the body. Sometimes the symptoms come on suddenly and severely with pain and tenderness in the abdomen, blood in the intestinal waste, and even death. One severe complication is abscess of the liver. Fortunately, manv people either never have this severe re-, action to the amcba or recover from it and continue to carry the parasites with less severe symptoms. In some, the ameba can be four.d. but recognizable symptoms are not produced at all. This constitutes a danger not only to the person who is involved but also to others, since the ameba can be spread by these carriers. Amebiasis (a more satisfactory name than amebic dysentery) can resemble many other disorders. For this reason its diagnosis depends on identifying amebas under the microscope. Prompt and vigorous treatment is in order. CARNIVAL There are a large number of drugs which are used for this purpose. The aim is to poison the parasites without harming the patient. However, potent drugs must be used, so care in giving them has to be exercised. One of the most effective drugs is known as emetine hydrochloride. It is given by injection in most severe forms of amebiasis, but is not useful for apparently healthy carriers. There are other drugs, including some of the antibiotics and drugs containing arsenic or other metals, which also are used, usually by mouth. These again have to be given with great care. The ameba is acquired by swallowing it in food or drink. It is also carried from place to place by flies. Prevention depends on sanitation and eating only uncon- taminatcd food and drink to avoid exposure. Therefore, travel in certain areas of the world, particularly in the tropics or subtropics, carries some special risks. One Minute Pulpit Thou hast consulted shame to thy house by cutting off many people, and hast sinned against thy soul. — Habakkuk 2:10. The most regular and most perfect soul in the world has but too much to do to keep itself upright from being overthrown by its own weakness. — Michael Montaigne.
