In Azerbaijan a Russian-sponsored provincial government was i.et up by a Russian-sponsored pp- itical party during Russian occupation and an attempt has been made, covered by some show of negotiation, to withdraw this area almost entirely from Tehran's control. If this withdrawal is not prevented, and it results ultimately jn a joining of the area with Russian Azerbaijan, is it aggression? If the forces involved are so small, and the dispute confined to one little area, and the British could not conceivably be expected to fight to prevent it, is it a threat to peace and therefore subject to intervention by the United Nations? Eyewitnesses to what has happened in the Balkans say that, with their skilled and militant organization, ti five per cent minority is all the Communists need to take over a country. Is it the duty of the United Nations to cut across false fronts and prevent such minorities from carrying the unorganized majorities along roads which thev do not wish to travel? Unless the United Nations can find the answer in such cases, can establish the point where internal developments become of legitimate international concern, all the formulas of Lake Success -\yon't help anybody.

Einstein has explained, through % "feeling of the heavy responsibility which physicists have taken upon themselves by the creation of the atom bomb." The tragedy is that these scientists and many of their colleagues have said all this before. They, of all people, know the process and the possibilities of their own creation. But the public has chosen to give them scant attention. Instead, the atomic bomb's potential victims have listened to others of infinitely less knowledge and considerably less reticence—politicians and soldiers and others who know all the tricks of attracting public- attention. Or rather, the potential victims have listened to them when they have, listened at all. Mostly they have preferred and striven to forget the whole thing. That is why these nine scientists are seeking a million dollars. That is Jess than an average day's betting at a big race track. That is less than the spectators paid to see Joe Louis' last fight. But with that much money the scientists might be able to take a passive worloTby the scruff of the neck and lead it to a place where it could read the handwriting on the wall without glasses. Surely a million dollars is cheap price if we can all read the six'facts of life, learn them, believe them, do something about them.

By RUDY CERNKOVIC Pittsburgh, Dec. G --(UP) Western Pennsylvania miners said today they would- lislen lo what ^"resident. Truman has to say, but .hey'll dig coal only for John L. -.cwis. Five miners at a bowling alley n Sli-abane.. Pa., agreed 'dial they would nol heed Presidc-nl Truman's back-to-work appeal. Someone broughl in a newspaper as .hey were watching the city bowl- ng league tournament. . Rudolph Krulce, 28-year-old var veteran who operates a machine at a Lindley mine, sludicd the story of Presidenl Truman's ;peech. '.'We're nol disrespectful to President Truman or 'iho government" ne said "I went to war for our country. We'll go again if necessary, but not oven Ihe government can break our union." Krulce, a veteran of three years combat action, won five campaign ribbons. The grim days of 1932 and the embattled era of Ihe coal and iron oolice were were recalled by Louis Moze, a 55-year-old coal loader al Ihe Hillmake Coke mine. "We don't want to strike. We wanl to work. But nnt at 29 cents a ton. I'll starve .firsl before giving the coal operalors any more coal for that slave wage" he said heatedly. Another war veteran Harry Kaminski, 26, objected to the newspaper accounts of the miners. "The papers are making us miners appear worse lhan Ihe Nazis. I know we should work bul no one is going to break our union. We fought a war lo prolecl our union. Now we gel Ihe stab in Ihe back from our own people." Kaminski, who works in Ihe Westland mine of the Pittsburgh coal company, had two ships sunk under him in the Pacific. Krulce assented. "Its funny," Krulce said. "A year ago we were heroes. Now we are bums because we ar? fighting for ourselves and not for those who stayed home to reap the war profits while \ve dodged the bullets." The women in the mining towns Against Piping Gas to ^Eastern Stafcss ' IJittle Rock, Dec. G — (•?) — Movement of-gas to eastern areas through the Little and Big Inch pipelines makes the south "merely a colony lo be drawn on for raw materials," in the opinion of Joe W.. Kimzcy. of Malvern, jiormcr member of the old State Public Utilities Commission. K'imzey said the south would bo | sapped of its fuel oil and dry gas to feed the "furnaces of the north and east" while those cities conserve coal to greal induslrial advantage. Kirnzey made his slatcmenl in a letter to the Arkansas Gazelle. Chairman Charles C. Wine of the Public Service Commission and Col! Hendrix Lackey, direclor of Ihe Slate Resources and Devolop- ment Commission, zcy's charges. The denied state's Kim- vention in the mailer is based on the fact "thai we don't want the pipeline lo be sold or leased and then used merely right-of-way through the stale," Wine said. Lackey s a i d t h a t Arkansas "could not well afford to proleyl the saving of lives in Ihe -lortlvand east" during the emergency. Rotary Hears nsurance stood behind the men.

Mr. Theobald was speaking spe- cUically of velerans' insurance and Ihe changes lhal have been made in it recently. He said Ihe government was not in competition with private life insurance companies but worked in close co - operation wilh Ihem. "Velerans' insurance is about 25 per cent chca'pcr lhan private- company policies," he said, "because Ihe operating overhead is laken gare of oul of separalc gov- ernmcnl funds."

Mr. Theobald emphasized two changes thai have just been made 'nlo velerans' insurance: 1. The veteran may now name any beneficiary he chooses, a feature which improves his credit standing should he go in business lor himself. 2.

Lewis lo the limit today and many locals of the United Mine Workers (AFL) sent blank checks to union headquarters in Washington to help pay (he fine of $3,500,000 imposed by Federal Judge T. Alan Goldsborough. "Lewis is in the soup and we're backing him up until he's out," said a spokesman for a group of miners sitting in a Library, Pa,, tavern. "Wel'l slick it out until we hear from the chief." That Was the altitude of the vast majority of the men who dig the nation's coal. But some of the older miners said frankly that they wished their chief would allow them to return to the pits. One grizzled veteran ol numerous battles between the union and operators said, at Uniontown, Pa., "Us older men knew this showdown's been coming for a long time. Lewis just went too far — drove the horse too hard. He's my lender, but to me he's not bigger than the country. I'm glad Lewis lost. It's better for us to see our union lose than 1o Jose our coun- 'The young fellows," said another "the ones who get ihe benefits we fought and bled for, want to to c.'iusc trouble. They want excitement, power. Union power can build and it can destroy. Me, I'm glad the government won. Now 1 hope it can put us back to work." None of the miners who criticized Lewis would permit his name to be used. The unions which sent blank checks to Washington were in districts in western Pennsylvania and West Virginia. Among them were the Mariunnu, California, Ellsworth and Cokeburg locals of District Four. Accompanying ihe checks were financial statements showing each local's treasury bal- locals were expected to ance.

O'BRIEN, M.D. Written for NEA Service Dislocation of the shoulder results from the arm's being forced outward and upward until the head of the bone leaves the socket and rests below, behind, or in front fo the joint. A shoulder dislocation is indicated by the wny in which the victim holds his arm and by the existence of- a vacany where the head of the bone naturally should be. Dislocations are produced by falls, unusual twisting motions and strong muscular exertion. Skillful Care Required A dislocated shoulder is extremely painful. The patient usually holds the hand on the injured side to support the forearm, keeping the arm close to his body First-aiders should not attempt to reduce a dislocated shoulder. Unskilled efforts may further damage torn ligaments. While it is possible to get a dislocated shoulder back into place without giving an anesthetic, usually it is not wise to do so. The patient is placed flat on his back on a firm surface, and the physician holds the elbow on the affected side with one hand and the wrist with the other. The arm is pulled downward as the wrist and forearm arc moved slowly outward. No attempt at force is made, because of the danger of further tearing of the ligaments and muscles. While the upper arm is held in this position, the elbow is brought around to the front of the chest and held there as affected hand and forearm arc swung across the body, to permit the hand to rest upon ihe opposite shoulder. At this point the bone slips back into position unless the head is caught in the torn ligaments. When this method fails, the shoeless foot of the surgson is placed in the armpit, to assist in getting the head of the bone back in place. After the shoulder dislocation has been reduced, a large pad is placed in the armpit and the arm is bandaged at the side of the body, leaving the. hand free. The hand and fingers arc moved from time to lime, to keep the muscles from becoming stiff. Move Arm Cautiously It may be necessary to keep the arm in this position for some time. When the arm is moved, caution should be observed, to keep the head of the bone from slipping. Any activity which requires sudden upward reaching of the arm Most Delegates Jubilant as Russia Shows Signs of a 'Right Turn'in Policy IRA U?/-" nna Williams soloist in soon as a fog lifts.

AP Foreign Affairs Analyst Russia's newest concession—that the velo shall not apply in the operation of any arms control machinery which the U.N. may set up—led to immediate speculation at Lake Success as lo whether Moscow foreign policy might be doing a "right turn." Most delegates seemed jubilant after Mr. Mololov's slalemenl. Some where looking :?or a suspecl- cd gimmick, but hadn't found it'. Coming as it did on the heels of other concessions to Vni weslern viewpolnl—on Triesle, the Danube, the principal of arms inspection, speeded-up demobilization among occupation forces in Germany—it began to look like Russia might be going to give the peace wagon a real push. Observers wore asking whether the time had arrived when Moscow, finding the trouble waters of the immediale poslwar period aboul fished out was preparing to give the world a respite from excursions and alarums. Russia and the other great pywers still retain the veto power in the security council under which has submitled Ihe complaint lo what comes next. The answer apparcnlly lies in atomic and other armaments control must be organized. If any of them use it to prevent cslablish- menl of foolproof safeguards, there will be no real progress toward disarmament. The meaning of the recent concessions in connection with Russia's over-all policy also remains lo be seen. Observers are curious over any connection between Mol- olov's recent moves and the statement by Stalin, just before the assembly convened; that these problems, such as arms inspection, could be worked out. For a time it seemed that Mololpv was pursuing his own course .without- being too much influenced bv what Stalin had said. Now, sudaenly, he comes around. Stalin's policy has always been to build up Russia first, so that she will be truly prepared for her world role. Mplolov has been a lil- Uc more inclined to press for expansion simultaneously wilh the build-up at home. Now Molotov refers to worry over Russia's stand for the veto right in connection with disarm- amenl controls as an obvious mis understanding."

Scripture: I Corinthians 11:20-27; Romans 13:13-14; Ephesians 5:18-21 BY WILLIAM E. GILRO.Y, D.; D The notion that the early Christian church was composed of: pure and perfect Christians is one-that is soon dispelled when one reads in the New Testament the epistles that were written to the churches not only by Paul, but also by Peter James and John. When one considers how unpopular and how -subject to persecution was the new faith, it seems strange that any. except the most sincere and unsullied should have joined monition against feeding, those who would not work seems to indicate ,hat there were in the early Christian community the sort of. "Converts" who sought to be parasites upon the abler and more prosperous members. Paul was determined to check any abuse of .the basic Christian principle of mutual, love and-mutual aid. Side by side with the tenet that Christians should' bear one another's burdens, "and so fulfill the law of Christ," he laid down the principle that "every ~ — shall bear his own burden.' The converts to the Christian church were largely Gentiles, many, of them former idolaters, in cities full of licentiousness. No doubt many of those who were drawn to the Christian way were inherently good souls, averse to Iheir licentious and evil surroundings; but others were converts from evil ways of living. When Paul describes the evil of these corrupt cities, he says, in writing to the Christians, "and such were some of you. 1 ' htirting these good, kind people? Never.. • , • It will rankle in his mind as long as he lives. Then consider that the baby isn't your sole possession.

But the fact that they had been vashed of their sins did not prevent lapses into the evils of a cmpling environment; and • some apparently did not accept, or real- ze, the Irue nature of the Chrisian way. Always there have be'en those ready to corrupt the purity of Christian faith and practice with ,heir own philosophies of ease and ndulgencs. Intoxicating liquor, too, was evidently a source of temptation and disgrace to the first Christians; as it has been at all times. Paul warns against drunkenness, and we may be sure that he would not have given the warning if it had not been needed. Drink can make a fool of a normally good and well - intentioned man quite as effeclually as it can of a weakling or wastrel. But Paul had an antidole for Ihe temptation to the intoxication of, liquor; one filled with the Spirit could not yeild to such temptalion. The man who had "put on- the Lord Jesus" had a strength that could not be easily corrupted, Hence Paul's Epistles are constructive as \vo\l as reproving, in their admonitions.
