PAGE22-THE BAYTOWN SUN, THURSDAY, MAY 22, 1952 Voyage In Diplomacy- West German Treaty Unprec / i On Bad n History ei By PHIL NEWSOH, UJP. Foreign Analyst When the United States, Great Britain, France and the representatives of the West German Bonn government sign their peace contract Monday they will dot the J Ts" and cross the "T's" of a situation unprecedented in world history. It marks the beginning of a voyage of world diplomacy to an uncharted land not even imagined seven years ago. t It is the direct result of the hot and cold wars between East and West, and a bloodier' example of the same thing may be found in Korea. It is simply part of the move and counter-move in the struggle between two great, undefeated coalition. That the Koreans and the Germans found themselves in between is unfortunate for them. The situation leading to next Monday's ceremony had its beginning seven years ago when the victorious Allies of World War n divided Germany into four parts—one occupied by the Russians and the other three by Ihe U.S., Britain and France respectively. It was, of course, tragic that a new struggle sprang immediately from the still-smouldering ashes of the old. While the Western Allies granted new freedoms in Asia and attempted to rebuild Western Europe, Russia plotted to rush into the power vacuum to establish herself as a world conqueror. To establish that power, it was necessary' that Russia have both the manpower and the industrial capacity of all Germany and not just the eastern sector which she occupied. Thus the framework was set for the European scene of the world-wide struggle. The Bonn ceremony on Monday marks a winning round for the\ West. Under it, West Germany achieves freedom, yet is not wholly independent. It' is a peace which, is not a peace but the closest that can be devised in the face of Communist aggression. A half million Allied troops will remain' to see that a defenseless West Germany is not gobbled up by the Communists by force, and certain restricting regulations will make sure that she adheres to her agreement with the West.. Besides those two main provisions, the six-point contract which has been more than a year in the making also includes: An overall statement of aims, which eventually would mean a completely unified Germany; an acts and interests treaty which guar-' antees a continuation of the trust-busting program and restitution to victims of naziism; the financial treaty covering division of the German defense budget between Allied troops; and the new 12-division German army; the arbitration tribunal to settle future German-Allied disputes; and the Berlin protocol which continues four-power control of Berlin but gives the German administration as much freedom as possible. Overall, it is the bravest attempt yet at the beginning of a free, unified Europe—a condition, achieved partially only three times before and then by force. ChRrleoisgTie elmost did it. Then came Napoleon, and finally, Hitler.

Hebrews 2:3. Washington Merry-Go-Round: House Committee Side-Steps Eviis Of Organized Baseball Looking At Lile By Erich Brandeis IN BEHALF OF the Swiss cheese manufacturers of America I herewith request our doctors to stop inventing so many wonder drugs. These drugs interfere seriously with making the holes in their product, and Swiss cheese without holes is just about as useful as cars without wheels. People simply will not buy Swiss cheese without holes, LEST SOME OF my readers claim that "I am getting paid by the Swiss cheese makers for this plug, I want to say right here and now and most emphatically that my only interest in the matter is that I like Swiss cheese. But I simply will not eat Swiss cheese without holes in it I haven't the slightest idea why, nor does anyone else whom. I have asked, but holes in Swiss cheese are a recognized institution, just like Durante's nose. BUT NOW LET me tell you why wonder drugs interfere with holes in Swiss cheese. These wonder drugs, or antibiotics, are used for almost anything nowadays, because they are supposed to destroy the germs that cause disease. So the doctors inoculate or f dose not only human beings with them, but animals as well. They are given to pigs because pigs are said to grow faster after getting antibiotic injections. _ They give them to chickens, because chickens so treated are supposed to lay bigger eggs. And they •give them to cows to prevent cattle diseases. And that is where the cheese manufacturers' kick comes in. In the manufacture of Swiss cheese, milk is used. Once a cow has been given an antibiotic injection— her milk, for some reason or other, no longer produces holes in Swiss cheese. The only way out I—eminent scientist that I am —can think of is to discover an anti-antibiotic that wiil prevent disease of the. cow, yet restore the milk's hole-making proclivities. As you can. see, we newspapermen have the cure for EVERYTHING. We can tell anybody "WHAT to . do at the drop of a haL The only thing we don't know- and can't tell you is HOW to do it. INCIDENTALLY, there has "been quite an epidemic of Virus X all over the land. I made some Inquiries about the origin of the name "Virus X." . "X," I.was toldj in science is the "unknown auan- ' tity." "Virus X" is supposed to be a combination of some SO unknown diseases. So they bunched the whole business together in one disease and they call the whole thing "Virus X." In the old days they used to call it catarrh, sunv- mer flu, epizootic and many other things. Now it's .Virus X. If you think you have it, consult your doctor. It may be only spring fever—or maybe By DREW PEARSON WASHINGTON — Congressman Manny Celler's much-heralded investigation of baseball monopoly has labored mightily and now brought forth a mouse. After rolling up 1,6-13 pages of testimony and exhibits to be released this week, and after hearing all sorts of witnesses, from. Ty Cobb to Ford Frick, and from Pee Wee Reese of the Brooklyn Dodgers to Ned Carver of the St Louis Browns, the congressional committee takes a firm stand only on about three things: 1. The Pacific coast should not be denied major league baseball. 2. Players who bolt to Mexico or en independent league should not be blacklisted. 3. A monopoly does exist in baseball, but Congress is not going to legislate against it. These conclusions are pretty well camouflaged in a mass of high-sounding, legalistic in which the House Judiciary committee daintily avoids any legislative action. -In brief, the committee report spotlights some glaring evil a in the great American sport, but side-steps doing anything about them. BASEBALL'S NO. 1 EVIL—Chairman Celler and his colleagues frankly admit the injustice of the notorious "reserve clause," sometimes called baseball's No. 1 evil. This enables a club owner to buy and sell players like chattels and binds e player to one team until the owner wants to release him for trading purposes. "In the past the reserve clause has been employed as a. 'war measure' to fight the development of competing leagues, sometimes at the expense of individual players," says the judiciary committee report. In simple language this meaix, that" a ballplayer can be barred for life from organized American baseball if he jumps to a team in Mexico offering him more money. It also means that the richer ball clubs can control the player market by making the highest offers to promising rookie players. "Despite the tremendous popular interest in baseball," - the report continues, "publicity itself does not afford a complete guarantee that the game will always be operated so as to serve the maximum public interest. "While the public has recognized the need for important and affirmative changes—such as a revision of the major league baseball map, which would have taken, place long ago if competition were baseball's only master—the men in control of the game have either resisted or been unable to make desirable changes." However, the Brooklyn congressman and his legislators flatly decide in favor of the club owners by stating: "Professional baseball could not operate successfully and profitably without some form of reserve clause." On the other hand, the congress- phrases men duck the <l ues tion of exempt' ing baseball from the antitrust laws. Such exemption has been requested by the club owners who have viewed with alarm Justice Department moves to prosecute football for monopolizing radio and TV reports of their games. "If blanket imunity (from the antitrust laws) were granted," the celler committee concludes, "All appeals to the courts from a possible arbitrary decision by the rulers of professional baseball would be foreclosed. "Club owners must act as partners as well as competitors," the Celler committee concludes , . Organized baseball has for years occupied a monopolistic position in the busines of selling professional baseball exhibitions to the public and therefore has constituted substantially the only market for the services of highly salaried professional baseball players." This leaves baseball just about where it was—except , that Congressman Celler has had a lot of fun bringing famojis witnesses to Washington, and "Justice Department - power to move in' on the 'club owners.
