Hankerings I: j: Syrians Want Less Socialism Personalities and Pan-Arab I* concepts seem to have played a Ijt minor role in the Syrian uprising |< that dissolved Nasser's United I»V Arab Republ ic- The basis of the Ij revolt was mostly concern over I*-vanishing economic freedom. I* Poor as the Syrians are in their \»- bleak, unyielding land, they have II a reputation as hard workers and I* eager traders' Nasser's government tried to herd them d own |1 the path to socialism. Recent decrees had placed a ceiling on income, and income over 6,000 pounds a year was entirely confiscated. Land tenure was limited to 100 acres, regardless of productivity of the land or the efficiency of the smaller farms. Nationalization of all major enterprises, of course, was a familiar course- No salary in the land was permitted to exceed 5,\\ 000 pounds save Nasser's, which Cairo in the New York Times, while the rich were easily cut down to size, in 10 years of socialism the poor were about as badly off as before- The Syrians couldn't see much future in that kind of economic approach and kicked the Egyptians out of the country. Back home in America we need not feel smug. None of our tax rates is 100 per cent yet (the lop is 91 per cent), but a man of modest income pays 50 per cent rales to the federal government on any taxable income over $16,000 — plus all the other state, local and sales taxes he must pay- We haven't nationalized all industry yet, but hundreds of government corporations are c o m- peting with private business, and in many areas you use federal electric power or fall back on kerosene lamps.

So, when we begin to worry McLLMORE I may change my mind by tomorrow, but as of right now these are among my beliefs: That the best proof that the United States is not inferior to Soviet Russia in the ability to wage war is the fact that Soviet Russia has never seen fit to at> tack the United States. If the Commies thought they could lick us, they'd let us have it, That world opinion is' held in the same high regard by Russia as freedom of speech, movement, worship, and the dignity of man. The outraging of the world is one of the Kremlin's favorite indoor and outdoor sports, as witness Hungary, bomb tests resumption, East Germany, West Berlin, and on and on. That those who favor appeasement of Russia would stand more- chance of being understood if they would, just once, explain what the appeasement would gain, and when, where and how it would stop. That those who say they prefer to be Red than Dead might well wind up both. What guarantee is there that Russia, should it conquer all, would assure a safe, happy existence for those put under { the boot? That the only country in the world that Russia really fears is West Germany and will go to any lengths to keep W. Germany as weak as possible. That San Francisco's food is highly overrated and isn't in the same class with New York, Los AiiKele.s, or New Orleans. That the Peace Corps will be gone and forgotten within three years at the most. That half the people with fallout shelters would be too curious 'one big happy cooperative mid-' a |, ol ,t the economic freedom of die-class family. Yet, as Jay Waltz wrote from others, we might give a thought Allen-Scott Report: Exploring Plan to Arm West German Navy With Subs Carrying U.S. - Controlled Polaris Missiles WASHINGTON, — The U.S. is exploring the explosive possibility of equipping the West German navy with a small fleet of Polaris firing nuclear submarines. Under the proposal being discussed at the highest levels in both governments, the Polaris submarines would be built in the U.S. and then sold to the West Germans for dollars. In addition to the German crews specially trained U.S. naval personnel would be stationed aboard under a joinc agreement guaranteeing U.S. control of atomic warheads used in the 1,200 mile range Polaris missiles.

This principle is the precept that man may not commit aggression against others of his' kind.

BUILDING THE BUNDES- WEHR — In exchange, the U.S. is giving West Germany new assurances to supply Bonn's armed forces with a powerful nuclear delivery capability, including the Army's 500 - mile range Pershing missile that is now undergoing final tests. Only the delivery systems will he given to the West Germans. All nuclear warheads for the missiles will still remain under U.S. control. Also, the U.S. is offering to integrate the two countries' military logistic systems in West Germany and to "sell" other types of late models of U.S. military arms, including tanks and planes to increase the fire power of the Bundeswehr. These West German armed forces, now five years old, passed the 310,000 point this month toward the goal of 350,000 men under arms by 1962. The West German navy received the first of twelve 350 • ton conventional - damage costs and claims. They are pressing the State Department to put this guarantee into a joint U.S. - British agreement. The State Deaprtment is taking the position that negotations on this touchy subject should be delayed until after Congress acts next year on legislation to make indemnity coverage on nuclear accidents available outside the U.S The U.S. is offering West Germany a chance to participate in a joint research and arms development program that includes new weapons for use against submarines . . . .Within 30 days, the U.S. will have a total of six Polaris submarines in operation. Together, they carry a tot-al of 96 IRBMs. All will be zeroed in on Soviet targets.

You need no involved dialectics o see that this is the work of ree men. Since 1945, the problem of set- ling the few survivors of the zi holocaust into the emerging state of Israel has required mil- ions upon millions of dollars, fews who lived in the freedom of the English-speaking civiliza- ions -have responded with generosity. Not a single dollar of these many millions has come from Jews in Russia or Jews in the satellite countries of Russia. Ye these Jews are no different than any others. The Jews of Poland Roumania and Hungary are the oldest Jewish communities in Eastern Europe. It was the Rus sian Jews who gave impetus t Zionism and were the first to settle in Palestine as far back a the 1880's. These Jews not onlj feel for their brethren but cj>.?r> the same -burden of. history, Bu the difference is this: the govern ments under which they live do not permit their .participation o charity. ;The Communists indulge no charity and while the Federa German Republic at Bonn has made vast restitution payments to individual survivors, to comma nities, and to Israel, not one dol lar of restitution has been made by the Communist regime of Eas Germany. Charity is one of the great evi dences of human dignity. Charity is the right of an individual to help his more unfortunate brother elsewhere. The American Poles in Buffalo, N.Y., in the days of the Czar, tithed yearly for a Free Poland; the Greeks in America have built hospitals- and cathedrals in the homeland; once a year the Swedes of the American Northwest toast the Swedish king; the Irish of New York and Boston were instrumental in making the establishment of the Irish Free State a success; and the Constitution of the Republic of Czechoslovakia was founded in the city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. With the advent of Hitler, the Jews of America rose as one man to help. The Communist governments did not allow the expression of human dignity. For the Communists, the idea of human dignity is only defined politically, never emotionally, never with a touch of the miracle of kindness. OUR ANCESTORS ''Can't you speed It up, Mr. Brady?

NO CASH, BUT ... PITTSBURGH (UPI)—A trio of jandits who entered a Pittsburgh aakery Monday was not easily discouraged. The crime of witchcraft which bedevilled a prim and generally obedient society in Salem, Mass, in the sixteen-hundreds has been ridiculed by many arbilrary individuals, most of them scriveners, who may not have ha d the fortitude to disparage the Law of the Land at the time. Miss' Inez Robb, whose personal friendship has been a spiritual treasure in my estate for more than 30 years, recently expressed this cynical attitude in an essay which went no further, however, than to insist that no Salem witch ever was burned at the stake, As to that, I accept her authority. But she seems to suggest also thai burning at the stake would have been cruel and unusual punishment for an adjudicated witch if the law had so provided. That is going too far. Does she think Mickey Cohen's sentence of 15 years for tax evasion is too severe? Miss Robb is a lady of obstreperous mind, but T entreat her to restrain this anarchy and yield a decent respect for the Law of the Land. Disobedience is the stuff that juvenile crirne.,is made of, and immodesty of speech in the New York theatre. I recall that in Palm Beach during Prohibition, when Miss Robb was a cub reporter doing Society for the New York News, we both, and others, chafed at Prohibition but faithfully obeyed the law. Whatever our secret desires, we were loyal subjects of the Constitution bf the U.S.A. including the 18th Amendment. I would never suspect that Iney entertained the faintest, inmost longing for a portion of gin in orange juice, I hope she honors my own purity. Or anyway, won't squeal. Under tbe law of William and Mary in Salem, Mass., witchcraft was a capital crime. I am a little aback at the news from Iney that no Salem witch ever was burned at the stake. But I have precious old documentary proof out of the court records of Salem | that witches were put to death by Store owner Joseph Moros told' law, though by hanging, not by them he had no cash on hand. The thugs settled for four dozen doughnuts. the faggot. It is an unjustified assumption now to hold that there never Football Fable Answer to Prtvtou* Punl* ACROSS i 1 Shoulder—— i 5 Bight —— ; 8 —posts 12 Fish sauce 13 Sturgeon egg* 4 Abrade 5 Made a mistake 6 Negative word 7pismantles 9 Titans EOBC1H taaULSC G1G313 G9UE-1 araa raacia 15- aaa maia " Food fish « Comfort DisepprQvto* t^rriTi laaagi NBH sound 32PostpopemenU 44 Hireling 25 Aleutian island 35 Forsaken 45 Companion 26 Jump 38 Coupled 47 Notion 27 Top of the bead 39 Legal profession 49 Sleeveless ; 32 Marthai 33 Wooden tutt 34 Depot (ab.) ,85 Permits 99 Night before tm event : 37 Assume ' 39 French head ' covering 41 Air raid precautions (ab.) 42 Blemish 43 Zodiacal riga •48 Beach ^ destination SO Glacial ndgei §i Poetic ^ contraction 63 Arabian gulf 28 Always 29 Rescue 40 Wandering 42 Billiard term garment 49 Grafted (her.) S3 Anger were any witches. The law there were witches. I earnestly entreat Iney to think upon tht grievous implications of her airy comments on witchcraft. I know there were witches in Salem. They made cats sun up chimneys through roaring hearth- fires, and kettles tilt and wet down the burning sticks without the aid of human hands. The courts were the most learned and fair in Christendom. Testimony was written down and I have some of it before me today. The witnesses gave their names and confronted the accused in court. They were persons of good report. They could be impeached for kissing out of wedlock. The Salem courts were th* best authority that was humanly possible. Can Miss Robb conscientiously say that of our own Supreme Court? I refer to the case of a woman who was possessed of The Devil, and accordingly was hanged on June 10, 1692. Abigail Williams and An (cq) Putnian, a child, swore in court that the defendant, Rebekah Bishop, beat them that very'morn- ing. This must have been a.super- natural affair, for the witch wai old and feeble and she had whined in her defense that, she had no injury herself "but my o Id age." She also said, "I can say, before my eternal father that I' am innocent and God will clear my innocency." The judge said, . "If you b« guilty, may God discover you." But witches, like some tax- evaders of the present day, • are without conscience. This one offered the cunning idea that The Devil, having known powers of evil, had assumed h«r body and done this wrong to spite one of God's loyal fold. This, of course, put the judge on a hell of a spot. Still, he did his best. One June 10, George Corwin, sheriff, wrote: "According to within written precept, I have taken the body of the within named Rebekah Bishop out of their Majesty's gaol in Salem and safely conveyed her to the place promised for her execution and caused ye sd Rebekah to be hanged by the neck until she wai dead, all which was according to the (something) within required and I so make return by me." The town crier was the press then. He had no editorial privilege so there was no irresponsible outcry to frustrate justice. That, too, would have been a crime in a better society than ours today. They had no Lindbergh extravaganzas in Salem! There is no mention of tht witch's husband, but Mr. Bishop may be pardoned a sad consolation in riddance of a demon who had imposed on his sacred trust in holy wedlock.
