An expert is somebody shot thru with bureaucracy, per- whose opinion., however foolish -haps in tribute to the government which Big Business publicly deplores and privately imitates. The marks and stripes of a bureaucrat, whether publicly or privately employed, are identical. First the bureaucrat sees bureaucracy as an end in itself, without Trick Or Treat Should We Strengthen The U.N.? Hankerings you must not question because hi is,- by profession, an expert.

He considers himself part of a bureau whose purpose is to keep. itself strong and growing, possibly at the expense of some other bureau somehow involved in the same operation. As a result, the first effort of the bureaucrat is to avoid doing anything, because it might, be In the meantime, whatever has been done for the past: 10 '. continues to be done.

INSIDE THE CIA — Top officials in military intelligence believe that the Russians have succeeded in; planting 'a number of operatives inside the CIA, . . . Representative , ., Francis Walter, D., Pa., chairman of the House Un-American Activities Committee, is telling 'congressional friends that.he plans to again push, for a fullscale investigation of the CIA when Congress convenes in January. Walter was unsuccessful in trying to get House leaders to back a similar probe earlier this year. However, if and mally in Europe, is now in Lon- i when Majority Leader John Mcclon, being treated.

Two of the agency's top covert operatives overseas have suffered "nervous breakdowns." They are refusing to return to the U.S. to face questioning on their own undercover operations and business ventures. For security reasons, the only details of these intriguing cloak- and-dagger stories that can be published at this time are as follows: CIA Agent No. 1 — This intel- b'e suffering from a fatigue and.a' bad case of nerves.

As far as this column can ascertain, neither of these CIA operatives has tried to defect to the Soviet Union, as rumors now persist in the Capitol. The two cases are included in the "unfinished business" that retiring Director Allen Dulles is secretly discussing with John A. McCone, the new head of. t h e Central Intelligence Agency. Also, the Justice Department is investigating the case of CIA Agent No. 1, after it was brought to their attention by sources other than the CIA. He has asked top CIA officials why they have fallen down on major political events within Russia. His most pointed question:* "Why hasn't the CIA succeeded in getting a single agent inside the Kremlin?" National intelligence estimates of the CIA examined by McCone show that their agents have done job in analyzing Soviet psychology. They also indicate that the CIA gave insufficient warning of Russian interest in Africa and the speaker, Walter believes he support his request. Walter is shocked by the tremendous sums of money that the ,CIA has given Communist Dictator Tito since his alleged bre-ak with Stalin in 19-15 ... If he wins approval for his .investigation, Walter plans to look.into the agency's estimates on. the situation inside East Germany. • These estimates, according to persons who have read them, have all been dtafted to discourage any U.S. effort to stir up unrest in that. Soviet con- regime. For instance, one estimate states, "We believe chat it would be next to impossible to convince the USSR, and the East German regime, or the East.

The moon is approaching its last quarter. The morning star is Venus. s The evening stars are Jupiter and Saturn. On this day in history: In 1825, the Erie Canal, the first of the great man - made waterways in the United States, was opened for traffic, H extended from Buffalo to Albany, N. Y., and connected Lake Eric with the Hudson River. In 1920, Terence MacSwiney, lord mayor of Cork, Ireland, died in a prison cell after fasting for INSTALLMENT $ CbMMuMSf S IN tfig UNWED NATIONS Everyohe knows, of course, that the Soviet Union has a per- jiianent seat and Veto in the So- curity Council. Not. so • many know It has 5 seat* In the UM Assembly for 1 for the United States. Itt addition. It controls the votes of Its captive states as no truly, "peace-loving" government could ever control the, vote of another; and the number of Its captives Is growing, along with its allies and subservient "neutralists." But these delegations in the Council and the Assembly are only, the beginning of Communist penetration of the UN and probably the least Important part of It. Every member state is also entitled to its quota of official p o.s 11 i o n s on the UN's numerous committees, •'. commissions, boards, administrations, funds and'agencies. For example, J judges out of 15 on' the International Court of .Justice come from Communist stales, only 1 from the United States.' The Soviet Union's Chief of Staff is a permanent member of the Military Staff-'Committee, and serves as chairman In' his turn, one fifth , of the time. A leading woman 1 official ,of the Soviet Ministry of Education was recently put in charge -of UNESCO's Division of Secondary Education. In addition, by agreement and energetic effort, Communists hold hundreds of key'posts Jn the Secretariat of several thousand employees who do most' of the real work of the UN: Throughout the Korean War, • • as well as before it and afterward, a Communist has been the First Assistant' Secretary^ General, for the Department of Security .Council Affairs. He has charge of: the appointments and 1 administration for the Secretariat's services to the Security C,o u n c i 1, including services to the . Military . Staff Committee, which, according to. the Charter, is to direct , the armed forces placed under UN command. This widespread Communist infiltration into the UN working force is all the greater because In few countries except the United .SJa'tes are Communists barred ^rom' government jobs at honie or abroad, arid few places offer 'a Communist a better opportunity to carry on his subversive- activity than : the UN' allotment Of a supposedly'non-Com- munist government in the Secretariat or' in "the 1 Specialized Agencies. These UN Communists are disciplined agents of a world-wide conspiracy dedicated • to world conquest by any and every means. We find them as delegates in , the Security Council and Assembly, as official members of 'commissions and committees, and as advisers, secretaries, reporters, interpreters, translators, editors,-statisticians, engineers and technicians supplied by the Secretariat to the, committees and commissions. We find them as members anil heads of missions sent throughout the world. Permeating the UN Organization, these enemies of mankind are in a position to press and push their subversive and divisive line into every discussion and resolution, every report and publication, every plan and action of the UN and Us host of agencies. They slant and twist, delete and distort what they report, translate, write'and edit to the point that every UN publication pronouncement should be •«,<~^.*r*+«vH *.* wftw^nw jfl S0m6 fly flfc, V, ORVAL WAftS way the purpose -of wotld Com- fnunisifi, .. Is it so, surprising, - then, that this Communlst'intested Organization insisted that the United States fttist not win the war in . Korea? Can we expect from it anything but sabot age and treachery 1ft any conflict with the Red Powers swdrfl to con* qtier the world? Mow cart *ny organization promote peace so long as strategically entrenched within it is the prime war-making force in the world? And nothing^can be done about It.- During the Korean War a committee of the United States Senate and •« New York grand jury'looked into evidence that American .Communists held Secretariat posts alloted to citizens of the United States. Some 200 American employees of the UN suddenly resigned and were allowed to avoid testifying, but 17 Americans who were brought before the Senate Committee refused to answer questions about membership in the Communist Party, Under pressure from the United States,. Secretary-General Trygve, Lie dismissed them from their UN posts. But on August 21, '1953, the UN Administrative Tribunal ruled,,. that they had been unjustly dismissed, awarded them damages up to $40,000 and 1 .legal' costs, and ordered the Secretary-General to rehire those who bad been on permanent tenure. Do the people ; of the United States want to strengthen an organization so ' thoroughly and permanently - infiltrated by these enemies of,peace, freedom,.justice and morality? Is this the organization' whic'h Americans want to place in charge of world military force? The answer to these questions might give us less cause for concern if to "strengthen" the UN meant only putting it in charge of part or all of our military forces. Surely a little consideration of the record and the' nature 'of this Organization would make most American officials and citizens refuse to make such a surrender. Unfortunately, this is not the only way the UN can be, and is being, strengthened. The first and chief effort : and threat of the Communist conspiracy is not military but> ideatogical and political. It is .as a propaganda bejt and as* an agency for political pressure , that , the < United Nations Organization is now .used by world, Communism to undermine the foundations of -liberty throughout the world. . UN PROPAGANDA AND COVENANTS .The UN is one of the .world's largest publishers. It also serves, throughout the non. • Communist world, as a vast speakers' bureau. It. has enlisted the aid of hundreds of .large and influential private organizations, which it calls its "Non-Governmental Organizations" -(NGO's) to distribute its propaganda in every non-Communist country. The theme of this propaganda is the gospel of the "welfare s t a I e." Government planning, government ownership and government regulation, paper money and government financing — these are the way to full employment and abundance for all. Compulsory sharing of wealth and incomes through taxes, subsidies, social security and socialized medicine — this is the \yay to peace, brotherhood and happiness. This is ,the gospel according to Karl Marx and Lenin, and as it does its demoralizing work — centralizing control of producers in a vast bureaucracy — the Communist devotees of these false prophets dkpect Boys Will Be Boys Answer to Prevlou* Puzjlt ACROSS 4 - Kovaci » Robert'* nlckn*m» 5 Female ruff 0 Native 7 Anger* 8 Conclmlon 9 Rib 10 Husband of influence among African leaders, i 75 (ln y s - His hunger strike, said Persons close to McCone pre- that he will discard t h e , , , . . . •, I ...*.. ...Ml ,tv «lll VIIOVC11U the unholy uprising ever smce ,t, CIA>s L ^ began.

Yo known as much about what goe on in Khrushchev's mind, or be hind the locked doors of the Kremj'f 1 lin, as anyone else. Cut loose boy." Sound advice, and I took it. To simplify, the job, I brokt' Khrushchev's speech into sections' First five hours, second six hours and on and'' on for succeedin{ days. Even such a novice as I at In ternational affairs could not helj but notice-right away that K'i speech was long. He. would neve do as the speaker at a Kiwani or Lion' Club y luncheon.- Every body's business would go to po , j before they got back to work. For a while.

The West must not forget tha K is a great water drinker. I weighing his attitude toward Wes Berlin, the Free World leader must never lose sight of the fac that K drank 22 and , % bottle (pint) of mineral water durin his address. That's -most signif cant. It could be'that he ;plans to drown,our grandchildren, not bury them. •'• ; ' :• A.point that must not be overlooked is that the Soviet Premier did not once remove' a shoe during his talk. This could be very meaningful. Russia's chiropodists j are ahead of. ours, perhaps. And | a country, that has the best chiro-1 podists often has the best technl-' edition-'of the heavy electrical equipment industry ; under the antitrust laws is widely'known. -By this deed, government/action has presumably "served ' to promote competition in the industry. Not so widely known, however, is that the same government at the same time has also been discouraging competition in .the heavy electrical generating industry. Government obstacles on imports have contributed to rejected foreign bids even though they have been 30 per,cent- or more below the lowest domestic bid. It is surely a striking anomaly to see simultaneously vigorous enforcement of .the antitrust laws and government restraints on competition. For government to pursue obviously conflicting purposes ' smacks of dangerous nonsense, giving rise to that distrust of law which erodes and eventually destroys the foundations of a free society. To cap the many ironies, reports are now circulating that the government, having won its 'cians in other ^fields. America 11 needs,' to. make * s.weeping study |j of its chiropodists,'so say/I.

To me (an old -international hand by now) this was tht || most significant part of the entire speech. Khrushchev loves windows. Now know his weakness. Th« we thought of a broken window palei him, causes him acute distress. Men, women, and children may die by the millions from fallout, and he can take : it. But th« sight of a shattered window pane — no. So, the West's answer is obvious. Bund an Army geared for window smashing. Assault troops armed with BB guns and slingshots.

It is certainly worth the consideration of our military leaders. . The speech proved that Khrushchev, no matter .the rumors, has complete control over his countrymen. Otherwise, half of the congress members would ha-ve left when he started the fiftieth hour of his talk. Only fright or loyalty or both would keep a rnan vent the largest of the firms from competing too hard, in order to avoid "damage" to smaller firms. Its antitrust Victory, won, the government now • wants o re-establish the status quo ante bellum. The development of new and ef- 'icient small businesses is one of he basic props to a competitive economy. However, to subsidize small business by arbitrary government policy genuflecting be- r ore the shrine of smallness makes no more sense than to d i s- criminate in favor of bigness, Unless or until we are prepared to let free market forces and the movement of goods perform much of the work of maintain- ng competition, government policy probably will continue to be inconsistent and self - defeating. In turn, this does not add that respect for government which it should have, but must earn. Bid For A Smite Only uncomfortabl* chairs be- conn antique!.
