There has been good rca- for this. The causes of war have been in the hands of fillers, statesmen, and soldiers. All that the rank and file •got Was .war's consequences. The only way they could stop a war was to win or lose it. Now General Eisenhower has challenged that belief &rvd called upon the citizens of this country to face the Challenge. He does not say that their actions can end war. He does say that "where men comprehend the causes of •War and understand thoir mutual responsibility to control them, way may happen—but it will cease to be an institution, a characteristic of human society." •There is nothing visionary about the Chief of Staff's challenge, lie makes his point with a logic that all can understand. "National welfare." he says, "—that is, general security from the four fundamental evils of human existence: fire, famine, pestilence, and war—is the business of each citizen because it is her, ultimately, who (Suffers or profits. Dcraiise he has made it his business, we have attained measurable success over fire, famine, and pestilence. "War, however, is'tiot a natural evil; it is man-made. Combining all the horrors of the other three, its male- yolencc and diabolic savagery has been increased by man himself in the very years that lie has learned control over the natural evils of life." We have taken a sensible, realistic attitude toward the natural evils, as the General points out. Men know that if they do not control these evils the evils will destroy them. Yet the mass of citizens of any country sit blinded ^ml immobilized at the approach of the man-made combination of those natural evils, like an animal of the woods, caught in an automobile's headlight on a highway at night. What, then, does General Eisenhower propose? "As I flee it," he says, "we need an organized effort, embracing every.phase of society, whose gnal will be the dcvelop- jnent of individual, community, and national attitudes that will remove war from the category of the inevitable into its proper position as an evil subject to prevention, Or at least control." That is not a blueprint, but it is a way. The way is tremendously difficult. Even under a government like ours, the influence of the people is such matters as this is limited. Yet there is nothing to be gained by a passive, pessimistic view that war is inevitable, or, by a senseless insistence that we disarm immediately bccaue war can't possibly come again. General Eisenhower has issued this nation a challenge to action. He has asked that we use our democracy to its limit in the cause of peace. It is up to us to lead the Way. The American people can lose nothing by doing so. They may help to win the highest prize that human society strives for. • In Hollywood By ERSKINE JOHNSON NEA Staff Correspondent (Johnson on Kl'DN Monday Thru Friday, 2 V. M.) HOLLYWOOD —Walter Plorell. the mad milliner of movie stars and New York socialities. t,ook off a sheared beavrr conl,, laboriously waved a :;lini hand wcichtrd clown With a 38-carat diamond rini;, and predicted that milady's bats will be. "sexier" this fall They have to be, Walter said, because skirts arc getting longer. "Ths men won't be looking at leg? this fall. They'll be looking «t hats. And the hats will have to carry all the sex appeal." The.PJorell contribution to the '47 sex appeal atop milady's head: A group of 13 halts, along witli two score others, ivbirli lie introduced to Hollywood at a fashion show, ploreli'is subtle name for the group: "Bedtimo Stories." IJis not so subtle individual names for the Jiats: Henry, Charles, Bill, Walter, Tom, Uick, Hurry, etc. Walter Plorell is a character. A former ballet dancer, IIP made a fortune designing mail hats priced as high as $1150 and spent, a good share of his profits on diamonds. THE HUSBAND'S SHRINK The 38-curot bowlder he's wearing on this trip to Hollywood is his latest acquisition. Tl/s only two carats les than the famous Hope diamond. "It's really nothing," he said. "It's just a little shrine built for me by the husbands of America. Tru-y eventually pay for all my hais." But, men, Walter is on our side. He said the price oi milady's hats is much too high. Then he ducked behind his SB-carat diamond ring and said, "I've already cut my prices. My $75 hat is now only $72.50. I just, can't detinn a hat for less than that. I'd rather be a dish washer." Shirley Temple was photographed wearing a Florell hat for a recent magazine cover. Florell is still chuckling about that. ."After" the photograph was made the magazine wired me for the name of the hat. I looked it up and almost fainted. The name of the hat v;as Juvenile Delinquency. I kne\\ I had to do something quick. So I changed the name of the hat to Fragrance." TEN BEST—IIATLESS As usual, Plorell is introducing some now tricks for fall hats. Hc'f using lots of gold trim "to give the ladies a sense of security in these trying times." He's putting fishing flics on spor hats and is .jOiminatinp wide brims He's also making his hats higher bcc.iusc "skirts are, getting longc a.'ic! f don't .want women who weai my hats to look like 'they're walk ing on their knees." Although it may be bad for his f business, Walter said there are certain women who should never wear hats, These women, fpr example, should never wear hats: Ginger Rogers Clauctette Colbert, Katharine Hep burn, Tallulah Bankhend, Anna bella, Mrs. Howard Hawks, ElSf Maxwell, Ingrid Bergman, Doroth; Parker and Greta Garbo. "When they wear hats," he suid "the results are disastrous." Yellowstone National Park has cliff 2,000 feet high made up entirely o c petrified forests and volcani debris. Yellowstone National Park con tains more and greater geysers thai all the rest of the world combined. Green vegetables also are yel low. They average one part ycl low t.o three and one-half part green. By RAY TUCKER COMPROMISE—Dur new reap- proachment with Argentina, even fhough it bears the earmarks of a mnchinc-sun marriage, was necessitated strictly by our growing difficulties with Russia and her satellite nations. It was rushed to a fairly satisfactory settlement in anticipation of the inter-American confer- f-nce at Rio de Janeiro in late Aug- .ist and the next meeting of the Foreign Ministers in November. Neither President "Truman nor Secrrtary Marshall are particularly happy over the Argentine compro- ir,i:;r. which involved the resignations of Spruillc Braden. the anti- Peron Assistant Secretary of State, and Gooi'ge C. Messersmith, U. S. Ambassador nt Buenos Aires, who avored a friendly policy. However, the men at Washington figure thai, they will destroy any hance of hemispheric unity if they rontinue to brand the Peronistas as outlaws. They also recognize that Peron was elected President in the iiost legal and fairest election In Argentina's history, largely because of Mr. Braden's outspoken campaign dgainst him. SHOWDOWN—But the basic rea- 011 for the get-together, as well as or the program of equipping both lanadian and American forces with A S. arms, ships and planes, Is- the prospective showdown with Mos- ow in the fall. When Secretary Marshall implements our current. anti-Communist crusade by delivering an ultimatum' next November, he wants and will le-ed at least the semblance of a system of continental solidarity to Common Ground By R. C. HOILE8 AM I AN ANARCHIST? When I advocate a definite limited government with the consent, of Die governed, I often have people ine of being an nn- avchist. I do not believe that because I believe that the sole purpose of Kovernmcnt. is to stop, rc- Blrict, rcstnln people from interfering with other people's equal rights lo pursue happiness that I am an anarchist. H 3 am an anarchist, then the Nine Commandments'ore anarchy. All of (lie Commandments but one arc negative. They aimed to stop, restrict, restrain people from doing in.iuvy to other people. Only one Commandment, the Fifth, is positive. "Honor thy father and thy mother thai thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God givelh I hoe." The rest of the Commandments are "thou shall not" or words to that effect. But a definite limited government which only does what every individual originally had a right to do is as far from anarchy as it can be. Those people who believe the government should do other things than stop, restrict, restrain bitch as take from one to give to another are the men who are approaching anarchy. That is the kind of a government that leads to' &h- archy. Anarchy according to Webster'is "absence of government; the.slate of society where there is no law or supreme power, hence a state of lawlessness or political disorder. Specifically the social state advocated by modern anarchists." The synonyms o£ anarchy are chaos and lawlessness. If my ideas arc anarchy, then <he Declaration of Independence ia advocating anarchy. Those people who claim a man who believes in a definite limited government is advocating anarchy better try to tell how their jde^s o£ government differ from Joseph Stalin's other than degrees. They cannot tell. , * * , A Correction Sometime back I erroneously reported that the Readers Digest paid no postage because it contained no advertising. I thought I was careful. Before I made this statement I asked a party that I believed was well informed. Either I didn't understand him or he didn't understand me. The Readers Digest pays postage ns all other second class publications do on reading matter as well as on advertising matter. The rate is much lower, however, on the non-advertising matter than it is on advertising matter. In certain cases, the advertising matter runs four times as high as on tire read- ine matter. The average Readers Digest, of 17$ pages weighs a little less than 1-3 pounds. The rate for non-advertising matter in any part of the United States is lii cents a pound, so the cost to mail this magazine to any part of the United States is a little less than V« cent. The post office delivering parcels (.hat weigh t nearly half a pound to any part' of the United States for a- little less than cent is a nice example .of government ownership. There is no reason in the world why all publishers shouldn't pay the full cost of delivery when handled by the United States government. But politicians like lo cater lo publishers nnd most publishers are loo shortsighted to realize that the thieC steals from himself; that cut-rate postage in the long run is harmful to publishers instead of helpfsl. Thai is the reason most of them fail lo oppose concessions in postal rates. I am sorry a'lont, tho error and glad to make the correction. OUT OF A JOB by Peter Edson WASHINGTON—•< NEA)—One of the more pathetic sights in Washington is that of a diplomat out of a job. . He comes to America full of high resolve. He presents his credentials to the President with a fine canned speech about "the glorious record of his friends between our two countries." He hopes lo continue same. He entertains. All Washington be- cpmes hjs friend. He is photographed for the society pages, holding a glass and glassy smile while gazing fi some grand dame or debutante fur and feathers. Ambitious lios- invite him places. He is some- R things go haywire at home, ift.a/ revolution or a war. The from the mountains come jH*4 take over. poor diplomat is out of luck. jTreaji of some principle, he an't turn coat and join the bjonists. Besides, they probably ^trust Win and don't want rqjyj't go, home either. All do Jg' quit- with another *H?M.I * explaining how pjCpresMiig regret £h,t of his poor „{•>& r ,f ', a coun- for a .for , an I there or LranshitiiiK. wilting for the foreign press, talking a lot of international politics in the hope that someday there will be a counterrevolution. HUNGARY IS THIS YEAR'S CASE All this is no once-in-a-lifetime happening. Almost every year there is at least one such story unfolded. During the war years it hit Jan Ohiechanowski of Poland. It hit Hjalmar Procope of Finland, who was asked to leave. It hit Dr. Alfred Bilmanis of Latvia and Povilas Zadeikis of Lithuania. It hit Constantin Fotich of Yugoslavia who. loyal to Mikhailovich, refused to knuckle under to Tito and the Commies. All of these diplomats bowed out of office warning of the dangers of Soviet Russia aggression. "You will see!" they all said. But nobody would listen to such talk in wartime, for Russia was a glorious ally. Today—well—maybe they were right. Currently this is the story o£ Aladar SzedeyrBflaszak of Hungary and 11 of his Washington embassy staff of 14 who have decided they cannot accept orders from the new government set up by Communist coup in Budapest. Ex-Minister Szedey-Maszak is >) black haired, slender young man of medium height. He speafce English slp^rly. .carefully., precisely..He hag a nice smUe. He*toupee ta,.return to Hungary,as §aon as conditions will perwtt. When does he think that wili-be? "Ah." 1«5 says as his face lights vp, "I would be very glad to know the answer.' "1REAL TEST CASE FOR THE UN 1 His only hope for that return now lies in solution of his country's prob lem by the UN. "Hungary," he says "is a test case for the United Nations. Hungary was the only coun try that had free and unfettered elections after the war. There thi peasants were granted an opportun jty to. express their point of view with result that the Small Land Hoi ders Party won 57 percent of th votes while the Communists woi only 17 percent. Now the Commun ists are attempting to reduce th majority to a minority. "If democracy is to survive, i must be based on the peasants' wish for self-government, independence and individualism. If the UN is tc assure peace and order based, oi law, it must find the proper,way t< deal with this question. "That is the first element, vfhio. concerns Hungary alone. The 's,ec ond element is broader and concern all of Eastern Eiu'oper-Rpmanja Bulgaria, and the others. This is th real test case for the United Na tions. If these small nations ca: .survive' only as satellites to a bi power, then there is little hope fo the independence of small nation Anywhere huth wpjid." • ,The exmlWster inentions as parallel^ the rf^luve of* the j^ai pf Nations to stop Italy's invaslor and seizure of power in Ethiopia ir 1933, Four ye*rs later the l**gue ^ •$»!:;,* .* ife his words. In f^ct, it was the Triiman-Mnr- hall recognition of this elementary. diplomatic fact which accounts for the President's recent visits to Mexico'and Canada. The two man- igprs of our foreign policy are try- ng to consolidate the American Continent as an example to Western Ruropc, and as a warning to Mosy. and there can be no such con- •olidation without the presence of ,he rich, powerful nnd influential Republic of Argentina. PROTEST —President Truman's icw request for Congressional au^ thority to inaugurate close, military collaboration with Canada and the Latin-American states ties in with other preparations for an Anglo- Kusso-American, diplomatic clash, ind possibly ns near P. showdown as lation.-; can have without resorting o war. Although the proposal caused mrdly a ripple when broached with •expect to Ottawa, his South American suggestion has stirred tremendous protest on and off Capitol Hill, ivith Henry Wallace leading the band as usual. A vocally powerful group apparently does not want Uncle Sam to rain and equip the armies, navies and air forces of the Western Hems phere so that, il attacked by a 'oreign enemy, they can operate as •\ cohesive, effective unit instead of a mob. OPPOSITION —The opposition's s.iguments against American arming of the Western Continent are fairy plausible, to wit:— The lowan and his pals oppose the Tinman-Marshall scheme because hey think it would start an arma- nent race on our side of the oceans, i'hey fear that sending weapons to S. A. will embl™ dictatorial governments like Peron's to remain in power, lor they would be the recipients and beneficiaries of our military xnmty. The Wallacers also say that the 31-oposed tieup would lead to United States domination' of Latin-American Republics and a violation of the 'good neighbor" policy. Lastly, they 'ear that Russia may resent these nnd other preparations i'or continental self-defense, although the pro;ram was adopted at Chapultepec tis Ion gago as March, 1945, and Stalin is now arranging the same sort of setup in the ten nations which lie behind the "iron cur- BALANCE—A 1 airly exhaustive tucly of the proposed plan for continental, military unification, however, suggests that many of the opponents have not read it or dis- ;ussed it with its fabricators. Here, in brief, is the scheme for at least defensive solidarity:— The U. S., in consultation with war exports from Latin-American Republics, would decide the military power to be maintained by each nation, its equipment and training. These decisims would be based on each individual nation's needs, its economic resources and its role as a member of the inter-American family. Next, from war surplus stocks, wo would provide modern arms. In return, however, wo shall rn- ccivc from each country r;o supplied weapon for weapon, or the equivalent, the arms which we have advanced. Under this arrangement, it is believed that there will bo no actual strengthening of any Soutl American power, although thcii overall and proportionate efficiency will be enhanced. However, under this swapping system, the balance of power dowi there, with respect to it;; importance in domestic revolutions oi wars between states, will be preserved. REQUESTS—The U. S. will send West Point and Annapolis graduates, as well as other trained experts, only if a nation requests such arsistancc. There is no obligation for any country to enter this compact, accept our aid or limit the size of its military establishment. Even though it approves the agreement, it mr,y buy amis elsewhere. Nor do we that any South American country provide a single soldier if we should become involved in another global conflict. • Each will make that decision for itself. Washington sees no coerion in this kind of program. The White House also anticipates that it will be ratified at the Rio Conference, as it has been by London and Ottawa. Tlie number of people who eat in restaurants has more than doubled since 1940 and about 30 percent of all food expenditures are spent in eating places. In India, more than, half of all deaths occur among children under 10 years of age and malnutrition is believed to be the principal cause of these deaths.
