THOUGHTS The books that help you most, arc those which make you tliink the most.—Theodore Parker. Getting Too Big For His Father's Britches Ultimate In Security C OLA G. PARKER, a paper manufacturer who has just been elected president of the National Associati>/n of Manufacturers, warned that the country has gone completely overboard on security blmd to the fact that the ultimate in security is jail, the slave labor camp and the •alt mine. Parker told his fellow industrialists, "Reliance on government is more than an insidious disease. It is the robbing of men, first of their self-reliance and finally of their freedom." Marx had advocated abolition of private property, a heavy income tax and free education, Parker recalled. Private property is passing into corporate hands through heavy inheritance taxes. Heavier income taxes are reducing available risk capital. And free education is imminent to meet the competition for more and more technically trained men. It all fits into the blueprint of totalitarianism. The new president urged the industrialists to set an example foi^the rnest^otthe country^ijy refusing to accept •ny federal help. Confidence and self-reliance made our ^eat prosperity and high standard of living. We'd 'trade assurance for security and be all better off for the incentive it would produce. George E. SokoLsky Stalin On Elections Ray Tucker "President In Absentia'' Variability Loses License According to present plan, all 48 states will begin by late 1957 to use a standard automobile license plate. In fact, even Canada, Mexico and Puerto Rico are in on the move. This is said to have a number of advantages. Car manufacturers will be able at last to put plate brackets on their product in a standard way. Most or all probably will mount the brackets inside the car trunk fitted with a small window. That'll make them hard to steal. But some will view this change with sadness. The variety in shapes and sizes of license plates has long been one of those agreeable reflections of our welcome differences in this country. A small thing, you may sa.y, but a pretty good cue all the same to the rich texture of this country. Perhaps it has been the range of colors and shapes that has led many an American to play the little boy's game of trying each year to see the plates of all the states. It's harmless good fun, and it may make a fellow think just a bit about places other than his own. ^ We know a man who used to feel a trifle sheepish about indulging in this hobb\'. That is, until one day when he was strolling a city street with a college history professor. Suddenly the professor darted to the curb to squint hard at a passing car. When he returned he explained. He belonged to the license-hunting breed himself. The new turn may help the police and the ear makers. But life along the streets and highways will be quite a bit duller for some curious folk. The Bigger Farm Larger acre- Fewer fariners till more land on bigger farms in this country. The Census Bui'eau reports that the average size of American farms i.s 242.U acres. That is the largest in at least a centuiy, .since the homestead law in 1862 gave parcels of 160 acies to settlers to open the public domain. The nuAiber of farms is decreasing, age per farm is the result of mechanization. Farm e(|uip- ment enables fewei- farmers to till more land and naturally encourages them to expand their holdings. Farm income and employment do not luu^p pace with other parts of the national economy, hut that has not kept farmers from expandin ,L;. E\'en since 1950, the average American farm has increased in size by 26.9 acres. Farming as a way of life is not losing an\' of its attracti\'enoss to those who stay on the fai-m, whate\'er the relurns. President Eisenhower will be depicted as a well-meaning butan easy-going and indiflerenL Chief Executive subject to the pressures of "Big Bu.sines.s," if he runu again, and if the Truman-Harriman extremists , frame Democratic strategy for 1956. Vice-President Nixon will be the target of an even more violent attack <iiong the same line, if he should be the nominee. Senator Estes Kefauver, who will .soon announce his candicacy for the Democratic Presidential nomination, has undertaken to show that Ike has been a "President in absentia," even before hi.s The Tennessean insists that the White House was kept in ignorance about tlic bankers' allegedly profitable role in the original TVA-AEC contract. Senator .Joseph C. O. O'Mahonoy of Wyoming has directed his anti-monopoly and squceze-lhe- little-dealer barrage against General Motors, which contributed Charles E. Wilson to the Cat)- inet, and wliich enjoyed billions in war and postwar contracts. In contast, there has been no .such spiked investigation of the two other members of automobile's "Big Three"—Ford and Chrysler. * * + ACCUSATIONS BY KEFAUVER — Kefauver charges that Eisenhower was hoodwinked in the TVA-AEC transaction by AEC Chairman Lewis Strauss, Budg:ct Director Rowland R. Hughes and Sherman Adams, White House Chief of Staff. The Senator's complete faith in Ike's own integrity, in his opinion, gives color to his allegation. On several occasions, the President has declared that he and the three aides listed above had made public all the details about the Dixon-Yates contract. But at no time did Ike reveal that Adolphe Wenzell, Boston banker, was an active consultant in the proposed refinancing of TVA. * • * INFERS IKE WAS NEGt.lCJENT—Since nobody on Capital Hill accuses the l^residonl of deliberate misrepresentation or withholding of Peter Edsoii Tlioy're throwing mush in llie fans ag;iin. 'I'iiis i.s the only plausible e»i)laiialioii lor all the fuss over tiny Portuguese Goa, on hulias \vest coast. Secretary of State John Foster Dulles probably never intended to gel smeared by it lie has. But now that he's in it, he's standing by his guns. 11 began when Portugal's foreign uuiiisti'r, Dr. Paulo Cunlia, was in Wasliinglon a few days ago. He made one of the most unblushing defenses of coloniali.^m since the Victorian era. His statement was .so out of stei) with modern political thought that it got juactually no space in the .American pi-ess. There wa.s a spontaneouslj' polite reluctance to show uj) the distinguished guest in a bad light. * + + "THE THOUGIITLFSS Sl'HEAl) of Ihc ;mti colonialist nio\'ement urgently i-cciLiirc.s reappraisal," said Dr. Cunha. "Acting as an inflexible 'anti-colonialisi.' ilii- man of tlie West is uncoiisciousl\' i-i'nili'riii ,'4 lli<> Lircate.^t .'t 'r\ice to his mortal eneni\', the Coin- nninist agilatoi'," lie said. "There is good colonialisni ami thiMf is bad I'oloiiialisni," Dr. Cunha went on. " us coiTcct the latter. But let us not aci hliml- l.\, simply by oppo.sjtion to all coloniali.^in and to e\'erytliing resenihlin,^ colonialisni." What the Portuguese fori'igu niinistfr ot)\'iously trying to do here was dcfciul \\hal lif considered his goveriunoiit'.-^ "good (•(iloiii.ilisni" in its hold on l^)rlugucse West Afiira, ,\lo/aii:- hicnie.

A Poriunui'se-i ulcd Ccia ground that it oflei-s no jn'otectioo as'.aiiist out -of -state vehicles, hit -and-run (lri\-eis or stolen car.s: ;ilsn, he believes it wuld put the state in the insurance business and make rates political rathei' than actuarial. Under his plan, tlie motorist would he reciuired to offer evidence of automobile insui'antv when he applies for registration. Without it, he would he required to pav a substantial additional fee for the pri \ileL;e of drivintj a car in the state. The resulting fund would in no wav cover the uninsured but would protect the injured. .Such a penalty would be calculated soon to drive the uninsured off the road, or into \'oluntaiv insurance. Hie facts, the Kefauver inference is that he was negligent, and not on the job. Or, as Governor Averell Harriman puta It more bluntly, "Ike was a good general, but not qualified for the Presidency." The Wenzell program, Kefauver further charges, would have been a bonanza for his and other banking interests through the sale of refinancing bonds The same indictment was hurled against Treasury Secretary'George M. Humphrey's plan to finance a nationwide highway program through a private bond-selling lormula. * * * FURTHER ACCUSATIONS— Ike'i failure to resolve disputes and bickerings among Cabinet members and top aides has been cited as further evidence of his lack of ex- cutive and managerial ability. Incidentally, most of the incidents under opposition criticism occurred since he fell ill. The White House, for instance, permitted Harold E. Stassen to charge that the newly imited AFL-CIO organization was a political menace. Yet, a few days later. Labor Secretary James P. Mitchell said that he -welcomed increa.sed political activity by the Meany-Reuther organization. Nor has Eisenhower Intervened to settle the differences between Humphrey-holllster and Stasscn-IMilton Eisenohwer over a future foreign aid program. Whereas the •^I'reasury Secretary insists on cuts, Stassen and Ike's brother urge even more generous appropriations. * * • , GRATUITOUS COMMENT—Secretary Dulles' gratuitous outburst on the quarrel between India and Portugal over Goa is cited as another example of Ike's lack of a firm hand. Even those who agree with Dulles that the matter should be settled peaceably, doubt the wisdom of his public intervention. In short, although not daring to make political capital of Ike's illness and impairment, the Democrats are doing so indirectly. World Stewardship Woes shame to civilzed people, he said, as the Indians cheered. IN SHORT. THE RUSSIAN TRIED not too .•subtly to stir up the Indians to drive the Portuguese out. When Dulles and Cunha came to issue the final communique on their Washington talks, \hvy had this very much in mind. '• . . . Various statements attributed to the So\ icf luler.s . . . and allegations concerning tlu> Portuguese provinces in the Far East were discussed by the two foreign ministers," they said. "They considered that .such statements do not represent a contribution to the cause of p(\-ice ..." They lho\ight they were taking a swing at ' Bul;;y" and "Knish" in this communique. But that word "provinces" bounced off their bat, . I'lie Indians fielded it and cried, "Foul." There was no specific mention of Goa in this (diumiinique, though Dr. Cunha talked .ihimi it a lot while here. But in a later press (oiifciciice, Dulles not only mentioned Goa, but I citci ,it('d that it is a Portuguese province. I 'lie official U. S. position On Goa is that of n(iitra!it\. ft wants only to see the issue .sciticd |)cacefullv. TMi: naiV .Ml.ING OPINION among Wash- iiiioii ofticial.s is undobutedly that colonialism Is a (lead duck and there isn't any use trying 111 iivivc it. I'ortgual just't realized that .Sooner or later, it is recognized that "Goa \M 1 I h.iM' lo ^o," as the saying is. Hut if and whbu it does go, it should be per- iniiicil to go peacefully. There should be full Ii'(oi;iiition of the Goan's rights to express their l>i cfcrt'iicc. They should not be forced Into union with India, if they don't want it In what Dr. (imlia calls "enslavement by Indian imperialism," ''ii!

Professor Philip E. Mosely of Columbia Unlvewilty was present at the Potsdam conference as an American expert. His specialty is the Slav^c languages. His knowledge of the Russian language Is perfect. At Potsdam, where he waa a political adviser to the American delegation, he sat as close to Stalin as was permissible, his object being to hear what Stalin actually said, in hi« own language Instead of getting the words in modified form through translators. At Yalta, Stalin had agreq^ to free elections in the satellite countrie.s, particularly in Hungary, Rumania and Bulgaria. Czechoslovakia was at this time free, and Poland was treated as a separate problem. At Potsdam, Stalin insisted upon immediate and unconditional recognition of the Soviet-dominated regimes of Hungary, Rumania and Bulgaria. President Truman and Secretary of State James Byrnes rejected Stalin 's demand. This Is what Philip Mo.scly says that he heard Stalin say: "... Stalin made the Soviet position clear when he stated that 'any freely elected government would be anti-Soviet and that we cannot permit.'" Mosely heard Stalin say this in Russian and I asked him to repeat the words in Russian if he remembered them. He did remember and he repeated them. Mosely makes hl.s statement In the course of an article in "The Review of Politics" entitled, "Hopes and Failures: American Policy Toward East Central Europe, 1941-47." . This question is again pertinent because whenever the issue of free elections arises, the Kremlin opposes the concept that people are entitled to a government of their own eholce. After all, Soviet Russia did not build an empire by spilling blood only to be thrown out of a country by an election. That is a form of American not Russian idealism, it is upon the Russian concept that Molotov wrecked the Geneva conference of foreign ministers. It Is significant that unless there was diriect word from Krushchev to the contrary, we should have assumed that it would be Kremlin policy to oppose the unification of Germany by a referendum to the German people. Admiral Leahy, who was also present at the Potsdam conference, confirms Mosely's recollection of the incident but, as he did not understand Russian, he does not give the words IhUt Stalin said to his intcriireter, Pavlov, and which Mosely repeals. Admiral Leahy 's testimony is: "The President (Truman) -made it plain that the United States had no intention of recognizing these countries until they should have a 'free government established by themselves without pressure from beyond their bodies.' That was talking directly to Stalin. The Soviets contended these puppet ministries were 'free and democratic,' but everyone knew they were controlled from Moscow. "I agreed with the American view that Rumania, Hungary and Hulgaria were operating under governinenl.s imposed by minorities, and was pleased fo see Truman take a strong .stand. Churchill backerl up the President, whereupon Stalin said laitly that their attiude precluded the confcimcc's reaching any agreement." Characteristically, Stalin was prepared (o destroy the Potsdam conference rather than recognize a democratic election. From this ' position, the Russians have not retreated to this day undoubtedly because they arc certain that they would he defeated in a democratic election. They applied this doctrine to a supervised democratic election in Gef* many last month at the Oenevn conference. They apparently still do not have the confidence in the willingness of the peoples of their satellite states to accept them. Why is it that oui' government assumes so much that a change of faces in the Kremlin indicates-that there has been a change in doe- trine? There is no e.\i)erience, to Ju.stify such an assumption. On the contrary, experience • is all the other way. Nevcrtheles.s, (he State De* partme^t accepts from the White House a mishmash policy which look.s like one of those pink jellies that shakes and .shimmers hut does not move. Such a jelly often is made to look delightful by forms and molds and by topping It < with pretty designs in whipped cream. It is unfortunate that there is no^ more courage among who should possess accumuljitod experience to prevent the goody-goody amateurs who advise the President from making mistakes based only on wishful thinking. Holh r<>cenf Geneva conferences, originally opposed by ,lohn Foster Dulles but advocated by Senator Walter George, were of this order, kxpcrience shoiild have insisted that both bo avoided. there anything that could be done about this?—F. C. A —In all probability it would be best to do nothing. The bust develops earlier in some girls than in others and to larger size in some than in others. Generally speaking, it is wise not to interfere with nature's plans, and since you are not yet 16 the chances are you can count on further development as time goes on. * >ti * Q—Please tell me if either liquor or tobacco could poison a man and keep on increasing the harm for three years after both habits are completely stop•d.—H. N. A—I suppose it is possible that permanent harm could have been caused by too much alcoholic beverages or possibly even tobacco over a long period of time. Ordinarily, however, one would suspect that the harmfuul effects would lessen after the habits had been discontinued and not get worse. • • * Q—Will vinegar kill tuberculosis germs? — Mrs. E. M. A—Assuming that you mean vinegar taken by mouth and its effect on tuberculosis germs in the Ljdy tissue, the answer is "No." I suppose that a culture of tubercle baccilli placed in a strong solution of vinegar for a lon^ enough time would eventually die, but I am rea-sonably certain this is not what you mean. • • • Q—Could cancer or polio come from what is put In bread to keep It fresh longer?—Reader. A—A finger of suspicion has not been pointed at such substances either as a possible cause • cancer or of polio. ^ * * Q—Do you think cabbage juice h;.s i.ny value for stomach ulcers? —Mrs. S. A—I do not think so—or at least that it is in any sense a substitute for more conventional methods of treating peptic ulcer. 10 YKARS AGO City commissioners discussed how with MacArlhur Park fully occupied and more employes gradually reporting on the site of the New Departure plant, a regular bus route to the"~cny limits can become a necessity as' a public Sanduskj Dfary 25 YEARS AGO Sanduskians can be assured of split-second ac<furaey in time, according to the government's clock at Arlington, an electric clock having been placed in front of the Citizens Bank on E.
