Monday Afternoon, June 10, 1957 The Arms Jfoce WHEN NIK1TA Khrushchev was an ambitious young Communist politician, il is doubtful lhat even in his Jondest dreams he ever imagined he would invade countless American living rooms through the miracle of TV, Now that he has done it, however, he will hardly be able to put it down as any sort of conquest. His remarks in a filmed CBS interview added nothing new at all to Soviet policy. It is possible, nevertheless, lhat there was some value in hearing him say again lhat Russia does not want war. As pointed out by George Kennan, former U. S. ambassador to Russia, there is a good deal of other evidence to suggest that when Khrushchev ta,lks this way he is telling the truth. THE SIGNS ARE plentiful, for example, that the arms race severely strains the Soviet economy and that the Kremlin leaders would welcome some way lo get out from under its terrific burdens. We think our own defense program places a heavy load upon us—and it does. But a much higher proportion of lolal production goes for arms, in Russia than in ,„_America. And the heavy commitment irrpl3Trc5~armHanks~and~other weapons means great waste through obsolescence, a problem we do not have in the same degree. Furthermore, it has ~"..l>een clear for a long lime that Moscow •"no less than (he capitals o£ the free --world understands the colossal ruin r,MKat a general nuclear war would visit ^•upon the earlh. ;^. RUSSIA THEREFORE may earn- ™*stly want disarmament; and even be "^."willing to accept beginning "small '"steps on the path toward that goal. As •.--•Kennan observes, we must be neither —Up* 0 gullible nor too suspicious in ^measuring Moscow's intentions. Yet a , .realistic approach compels us lo realize ;:::,thal Russia still will seek to gel the n .;beUer of. us in a disarmament plan if '-"It can. This is not necessarily because ;*J.t, wants to fighl a crushing war but > ^because it can use military advantage '"if* decisive leverage in peaceful con•• quest. Khrushchev's TV comments re~ emphasized that the Soviet Union not "'.opJy is not abandoning its '-peaceful -.competition" with free lands but stout': ]y believes il will win (hat contest. It is the task of America and all Us free friends not only to avert a ruinous war ;•„ but io make certain that tyrannical -.communism does not in fact win (he . .slowly unfolding peaceful struggle for - the minds of free men. AN EMINENT industrialist recenl- ly receiving a Horatio Alger award remarked, "There have never been ; more opportunities—and fewer people really looking for them." Too many people see opportunities but don't recognize them. cjt; ttascbdll Scene THE DECISION at the recent Aational League meeting in Chicago giving any of the clubs of that league the right to move their franchise it they so desire, makes il likely lhat California will finally have representation in major league baseball. For . the Brooklyn Dodgers and New York Gianls appear now to be some steps closer to California. Informed baseball writers in the New York area are quite convinced that the Dodgers arc California-bound and that, if they go the New York Giants will have no alternative but to follow. One of the factors in the contemplated move is television So many games are now lelcviscd in the Greater Now York area that the fans are becoming saturated wilh television baseball. If the Dodgers and the Giants move, as is likely. Chicago will then remain the only two-club major league city in America. And there have even been rumors that the White Sox would move. It appears that the two- club major league city is almost a thine of the past. Baseball, 'the national game," will become more national in its geography. The old geography of the big leagues was based on conditions of a different age in transportation amusements and communications. The rumors and contemplated moves indicate that baseball now feels the pace of change and must meet the changing conditions of life in America of the new technological age. EVEN THE MOST conscientious public official probably will admit that culling budgets is rot one of Ihe joys of government service. A WEMTOt CLASSIC , MOM! LOOK / A 'HORSESHOE A S.I" "THAT PcrRHAPS IT IS A BIT EARLY IrVTHe SEASON 76 GO b-IO Phyllis Efiltcllc England Knows How To Snob With Finesse LONDON' — There are countless exciting sights lo see in London — Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, quaint old scrihblings ,from Jack the Ripper, and so on — but Die most attractive of all is "The Perfect Snob:" ' Some readers may claim lo have observed snobs in America, say oj) Park Avenue or Beacon Street, but they arc speaking out ot false local pride. England is Ihe linme o! snobbism, and there •s not an American alive who can lifl noses with a practiced Britisher. less ready cash than a resourceful New York City delinquent, taxes on eslales and manses being what (hey are, but they main- lain their social standing anyway. "In order lo eat, the upper class blokes must send (heir children (o work," explains a spokesman for Die cabbie drivers of Ihe United Kingdom (the official outfit for distributing tidbits In visitors). "It's quite sad, but Ihe children like working. It's an idea Ihey picked up from you Americans, I believe." TDK REASON for IWs is. (bat (he typical American snob is a person vvilh money who makes his fellow man feel inferior, while an English snob is a person with posilion but no money who makes his fellow man somehow feel cheerier. The British make no bones phout their rank-n-file system, ar.tl even the file people seem lo accept it. They even rather like il. The nubbed cane in Berkeley Square and the ffomburg al Claridges are not only traditional, but they're a source of combined reverence and amusement for Ihe people; and there's a touch o! sympathy, too, an occasional tear in Ibe beer for nobility. IT IS generally accepted lhat many of Ihe lop-hat snobs have THE YOUNGER uppercrust take positions as clerks, lypisls —whatever Ihey can get. It's considered particularly "fashionable," according lo the Brills)) Travel Association, to work in an advertising agency these days, Ar.d the agencies are delighted, of course, lo employ Ihe youthful and titled. They make good - "conlact" executives since, owing to the na- lional snob appeal, an Earl is even better'than an early bird for getting the worm. H is suggested here lhat would-. be American snobs visit England al the earliest opportunity, to learn how lo be a snob with fi- neise . . . SEE HOW THE gentleman in Ihe lopper indulgenlly smiles the waiter out of any expectancy of a generous lip. (If an American lipped like a nobleman, he would nol receive a full-blown smile). Observe the chap in striped trousers and morning coat exchange aloof pleasantries wilh. a Alayfair doorman. The doorman is not jealous, he is proud. Watch Ihe engaging sight of a shabbily dressed youth requesting, and receiving, (lie best lable al (be besl restaurant. The youth, threadbare enough to be picked up for vagrancy in Pittsburgh, is practicing what is referred to here as "inverted snobbery." Experts on "l.S." say it's nothing new. To "dress in a suit off the peg" has beep the snobby thing fo do for decades. TflE REAL reason snobs in England can behave so charmingly is (hat all Ihe people except Ihe radical snobs appreciate (hem, either because they are impressive or amusing. Few men are jealous of them. In America, snobs must oper- claim to the lorgnette. And anybody working in an unfriendly atmosphere is bound lo feej self-, conscious, not to say downright nasty. To be a truly perfect snob, you should not have pressures. And wealth is so frightfully oppressive. Peter Edson Girard Case Hits 'Status Of Forces' Pact WASHINGTON - (NEA) — In the past three years, 32,059 U.S. servicemen on duly overseas corn- milled crimes which were subject to trial in civil courts of Ihe countries where they were stationed. Recent hearings before Senate Armed Services Committee showed these cases were disposed of as follows: Jurisdiction waived by foreign courts and cases returned io U.S. military authorities for handling— 21.807. Cases pending as of Dec. 1. 1956 —898. Cases brought lo Irial before foreign courts—9,354. Of Ihis last number, (hose ac- quilted numbered—928. Given suspended sentences by foreign judges were — 425. Fined or reprimanded by foreign judges were — 7.696. Convicted and sentenced to foreign prison terms—305. The amazing Ihing aboul these .12,000 cases is Ihal over 99 per cent of (hem never atlractcd any altenlion outside Hie local areas where the crimes were committed. These figures dg no! include coiirl-irmlial cases. They cover only offenses committed by armed service personel while off duly and outside military reservations! courf-marlial after shooting a native Peeping Tom. And this is lopped by Ihe case of Army Specialist William S. Girard. who accidentally killed a Japanese woman on a U.S. shooting range. The United Stales has now acquiesced lo Japan's demand that Girard be (ricd in a Japanese civil courl instead of bv court- martial, as U.S. Army authorities had demanded. The two cases arc blown up into major incidents which threaten good relations between the U.S. and two Asian allies. Whitney Bolton Glancing Sideways NKW YORK _ There was a song in a not loo distant musical called somebody's .lament — Adclc's. I think'— UIQ show having been "Guys And Dolls," and in it a principal doll wailed how frustration in romance can lead to colds, sinus infections and similar dislresses. • I am pretty much thai way aboul movies, yet no matter how craftily I plan things it always works out Ibat just before [ depart for the summer our movie -critic turns up ailing and I inherit his job. Pro tern. movie which whole areas might ban. HIS ANNUAL ailment is called boatitis. or should be, and he is Ihe kind of boatman who lakes three weeks to gel his boat from the yard to the walcr. There are scores — maybe, even Ihousands — of New York boatmen who have Ihis ailment and you would think by Ihis time they would have though! tip a faster way of gelling a hull into water. But they never do. It lakes three weeks, flat, and New York offices must be deserted places if all boatmen in these parts scamp out at Ihc same time to throw Iheir shallops a- sea. CONSIDERING thai several million uniformed Americans harl shore leave or screed overseas in Ihc lasl three years, the figures do nol reveal a high crime rate. They don't make big news. But then along came the case of M'Sgl. Robert R. Reynolds, acquitted on Formosa bv a US AT THE ROOT of (his problem are the so-called "slalus of forces" irealies providing for the trial by native courts in crimes committed while not on duly and away from Ihe post. In 1952 the United States gave Japan the same status of forces agreement given to North Atlanlic Trealy countries. The U.S. now has 25 such agreements. In about 40 other countries where Ihe U.S. has Military Assistance Advisory Groups—MAAG— Ihere are special agreement giving Iraining pcrsoncl diplomatic stains which exempts Ihem from the jurisdiction of native courts. The United States was in (he process of negotiating a .slalus of forces treaty wilh Formosa when the Reynolds case arose. Had it been in effectIhc case of Sergeant Reynolds might have been as ron- Ime as those in the figures given above. I Senate, an organization called De-" fenders of (he American Constitution, Inc.. has been frying lo have it repealed. The organization is headed by Lt. Gen. P. A. Del Valle and Brig. Mcrritt B. Curtis, both retired Marines. They publish a four-page monthly leaflet called "Task Force" which crusades for restoring con- stilulional righls to Ihc U.S. armed forces overseas. In Ihe most recent issue Rep. Frank T. Bow has Ihe lead article asking for repeal of the slalus of forces Ireaty. Rep. Bow and seven of bis colleagues have introduced resolutions which would direct President' Eisenhower to terminate all sla- tus of forces agreements. Similar resolutions have been introduced in Senate by William Jenner and the late Joseph R. McCarthy. Other such bills were defeated in the last Congress. In view of the Reynolds case, the chances of repeal would seem lo be slim. But the real lest will be how the Girard case works out in Japan.

WELCOME, after Ihcse problem epics, will be old Bingo Crosby in a lightweight suit in a theme called "Man On Fire," which will introduce to screen audiences a blonde detonator called Inger Stevens. Miss Stevens was first vouchsafed to audiences about two years ago in a play which lasted about a week — long enough (or Ihis occult reporter lo wrile: "If the movies have any sense al all. they will hustle Miss Stevens off lo Hollywood by tomorrow night and keep her Ihere as (he prelti- esl Ihing in loun. She also can acl." 11 took Hollywood a year to gel around to this job of transportation but, finally, it did and here she is in a Crosby picture for all lo see. l\ ANY CASE, this fellow has skipped out and left me wilh a slint of two weeks of movie seeing and just to see how much pain was going lo be involved I took a look at Ihe advance schedule. I see that Miss Marilyn Monroe and I, heretofore strangers, or practically so. are going to meet in a projection room lo see her film version of,"The Sleeping Prince." She calls il "The Prince And The Chorus Girl," or something like lhat. Also, the film version of "A Hatful of Rain" is coming along in a few days and it is going '.o be interesting to see bow Hollywood,, which has a code about narcotics in movies, wrestles with the theme of that erstwhile Broadway play in which an addict destroys his family life. Then comes "Island In The Sim." about which there has been healed controversy because Miss Joan Fontaine is leading woman to Harry Belafonte. who is a Negro. The story is that nothing untoward.occurs in llie-film and, almost probably, il doesn't. You don't spend 52.000,000 making o OTHER goodies are promised and one can only hope thai they stack up to their advance billing. An old Frenchman, wise as the rocks, once said that one man's meal is another man's movie, •gpuiuximatcly, and—1- always- have held lo this. I coultl go to see plays with live actors seven nights a week and often do, but after three movies a faint ennui begins lo sel in and if !he job continues long enough rigor mortis sets in. I always provide a chair for il to set in, however. THE ONE excellent thing about seeing movies in advance for printed review is that they are invariably unreeled in air-conditioned comfortable rooms equipped wilh deep, soft, embracing seats and adjacent ashtrays. It is no work al all to go to a projection room and see a picture. The only work involved is in keeping awake because these special reviewing chairs are (he nearest Ihing to a feather bed on an ocean liner in a gentle sea. If one goes lo a movie mosque, one has to sit in what's (here] not smoke, and keep his feet on the floor. In projection rooms they have railings- provided for keeping (he feet up and at case and, altogether, il's the most comforlablc way of doing a job I ever experienced. Also, one can exchange com- menl wilh a fellow reviewer without having some ticket-buying citizen hiss: "Sh-h-hihl'^_]_ See you at .the movies. Hal Boylf Reporter's Notebook NEW YORK — Marilyn Monroe, whom gentlemen prefer, says blondes have a woo thai other women arc spared. "If you're a blonde,' she said, "it i s considered Ihal you have lo be told what to do-that someone else has lo decide things for you." As Hollywood's most shapely proouccr since Sam Coldwyn gave up barbells, Mari. lyn is here lit the premiere of her first production, "The Prince and the Showgirl," in which she stars with Sir Laurence Olivier, "In all fairness, lie should probably b e called Ihe producer. I'm the owner," she said. But Marilyn says she shouldered her full share of production worries. { WHEN I FIRST met Marilyn several years ago, she was an uncertain kid with an unsure foolhold on fame, and I couldn't be sure whether she was frightened or amused by what was happening to her. Today I had Ihe same sensation of doubt. II is hard lo figure whether Marilyn, who retains a kind of breathless, small girl quality, is scared inside herself—or secretly laughing at you because she's a step ahead of you, and knows it. The interview began on. a note o( unreality. 1 was admitted to her apartment by a press agent who confided casually that be was 35 years old, used to be a stockbroker, but sold his seat on Ihe New York -StoctrE xchangeHn-1951 — Then Marilyn enlcred, as tousled and lovely as ever. She was' asked what she thought was the biggest public misconception about her. She laughed and replied: "People identify me personally wilh the pails I play. It isn't so much (hat I mind, but it just isn't so. But I've played so many different parts by now Ihey must be confused." SHE INDICATED she Is still a bit mystified why some crilics thought il up. roariously funny a few years ago when she expressed an ambition to play Ihe role of Grushenka in "The Brothers Karamasov." "Most of tKose who thought my ambition funny had never read the book," she sairt. "Grushenka was an earthy girl. Her name in Russian means 'juicy pear.' 1 love thai!" Marilyn feels Ihe recent crowded years haven't basically changed her outlook" in a childhood of hardship in which she moved from pillar to post Marilyn knew plenty of rugged lonely years. I asked her if she was broke and friendless again, what she'd miss mosl in her present life of comfort.

WASHINGTON - I suppose you poor unfortunates who live in brick houses are safe enough, hut I am safer still. My house is frame, with a coot of white paint, and it has hardly any built-in radiation lo soflcn my bones. Bricks, by comparison, are hot. Lightweight concrete is hotter still. All (his is by way of saying that after a week of being scared by scientists who fear that atomic radiation will be the ruination of us all. Ihe Congressmen investigating the subject called in Dr. Willard F. Libby, Ihc distinguished chemist and long-time member of the Atomic Energy Commission. THE TALL. CALM, sandy- hrurcd Dr. Libby had some calming words. He said radiation from testing atom bombs, goodness knows, was bad, bul that it amounted lo only a liny frac- (ion of tile damaging rays we (the human race, lhat is) have been absorbing since the beginning of time. "The extra radialion from the test fallout is a small fraction of Hie natural dosage we receive from our own bodies, our surroundings, and the cosmic ras'S —and a very small fraction of Ihe X-ray doses taken by many individuals." be said. DR. UBBY began discussing the milliroentgen. which is a word meaning measurement. One millielcetera means one unit amount of energy absorbed by one unit of living tissue. If that's clear, we'll consider what's been going on in Sweden. Scientists Ihcrc have shown according lo Dr. L.. Ihal in wooden houses like mine, a human in !be center of Ihe living room will absorb from SO to 90 milliroenl- fecns a year. In a house made of brick, he'll soak up HO millirocnlgcns. If he lives in an apartment made of lightweight concrete with alum shale, he'll absorb more than 200 milliroentgcns. • This, said Ihe doctor, compares lo Ihc one lo five unils that float down on Americans per year from alomic tests. HE SAID, in fact, that wherever (here's sunshine, there arc cosmic rays. Wherever there's granite. Ihere's radiation from ils uranium content. He did make one exception. On (he Laurcn- tian shore in Northeast Canada, where sea water"during Ihe ages Kis washed the uranium from Hie granite pebbles, there's no radiation. Dr. Libby added that he was Barbs The price of gas, tires, oil and repairs makes going broke a very short trip by auto. Now comes Ihe lime when Hie balhing beaches will closely resemble a Hock of magazine covers. making a sincere effort lo learn Ihe truth about radiation, a subject that hasn'l much interested science until it began seeing mushrooms of alomic dusl soaring Into the stratosphere. He has more than 50 scientific organizations studying all aspects of the situation. Around the world he has washtubs placed on strategic rooftops so he can measure atomic dust in (he rainwater. Only place in the world, he said, where man-made radialion doesn't flultcr down from above is where it never rains, and if I were a Palm Springs real estate agent, I'd put that in my ads. DR. LIBBY said he was against war. He approved of disarmament. But so long as those Russ- kies continue to test atom bombs he thinks we- ought to do the same. He doesn't Ihink Ihe hazards are great from Ihe fallout —or at least not nearly so great as Ihe dangers of all-out war. I (bought he made a good case. That is not all. I'll enter my wooden house fonight feeling happy that it isn't made of brick. Dr. Libby and helpers, in- cidenlally, even now are beginning a study of bricks and (heir built-in radialion. (Unilcrf Features Syndicate. Inc.) Military Fat MAINTENANCE of very large military lorces made necessary by Ihe troubled world situalion takes a Iremcndous slice of Ihe federal hudgcl pic. There is lillle prospect thai Ihis slate of affairs will change significantly in the foreseeable future. That is why il is so im- noitanl lo take a hard look at military expenditures to winnow out Ihc chaff of wasle and duplication. The national security is obvi- oiisly of paramount imporlance. This docs nol mean lhat citizens must approve ot absolutely any military cxpendilurc. The very MZC of the military budgel makes it all Ihe more essential to trim out whatever fat there may be. Armed forces have been historically more careless about money than otlicr enterprises Military men arc used to demanding results without counting (he monetary cost, and to a icasonable oxtcm (his is quite proper. This attitude does not justify waste or needless duplication of service, especially in time of peace. It is nol for a layman to determine whether this or (hat phase of military activities could be curtailed without endangering security. That is a job for Ihc experts, both civilian and military. When considering the defense budget, the experts should nol look upon Iheir task as simply a choice between economy and adc- quale securily. As a nation, we svanl all.
