NOVEMBER 27, 1951 Tag Reckless Drivers As a deterrent to reckless driving, the proposal of New Jersey's Banking and Insurance Commissioner Gaffney to the Northeastern regional highway safety and motor vehicle conference is worth consideration. He would require that a red label be pasted on the windshield and rear window of any car whose driver-owner is convicted of violations tending to cause accidents. · To give effect to the plan every ear at the start would bear green labels. Following the conviction of ah owner, the green labels would be replaced by red labels. Failure to obey instructions regarding the labels or a second conviction within a year would result in revocation of the offender's driving license for two years in addition to fine or jail penalties. * Mr. Gaffney argues that the plan would tend to spur "healthy and constant impulses" on the part of the average driver, with its effectiveness limited only by the number of states adopting it. The commissioner would apply the red label to cases of excessive speed, passing on hills or on dangerous earves, moving into the wrong lane, driving through red lights or stop Streets and driving too close to the ear in front and at fast speed. Boyle Column BV UAL BOYLE NEW YORK, Nov. 27 f/P)--Twas the day after Thanksgiving. Wilbur Peeble looked pretty feeble a* he tottered into the office of his wife's favorite psychiatrist. "This is a surprise!" said Dr. Libidosis. "I was expecting Mrs. Peeble." "I decided to fill Trellis Mae's appointment for her today," s*id Wilbur. "H-m-m, that's rather unusual, I must say. But He down and take the load off your mind." Wilbur took off his shoes and sank exhausted OB the couch. He sighed tiredly. "Now, just start talking," said Dr. Libidosis soothingly. "Say anything that .comes into your mind." "I came to see you about our Thanksgiving Day party yesterday, doc. I had my family over tor dinner -mother, brother Elmo, brother Clarence, his wife, Fay, and their two kids, and my sister Gloria and her boy friend Roscoe. I think it's nice to have the family get together like that on holidays, don't you. doc?" "Tell me what happened," said the psychiatrist. "Well, everything went wrong from the start," said Wilbur. "Trellis Mae was making the turkey stuffing, and mama came into the kitchen and said, 'Wilbur likes LIONS SPEAKER--Mrs. Stella B Werner, of Chevy Chase, prominen Montfomery county civic leader will be the princiapl speaker a the Francis Scott Key Hotel on Thursday evening when the Fred crick Lions Club will hold its Ladies Night event in the oallroom at 6.30 o'clock.

The War We Don't Know While we prepare ourselves and our allies to fight a shooting war with weapons that could destroy civilization, a war we do not know and hardly sense is going on all about us, and we are losing it in utter bewilderment. II. S. News World Report calls tt World War III, Russian style. Its conquests in five years are among history's greatest, engulfing 600,000,000 people. Its wea- pon« are fifth columns, revolution, assassination, propaganda, purges, satellite wars._ Conquered are | says, g l don't see how ~you live in that, dear.' And she put on an j apron and pitched right in to he'p. Don't you think that was nice of her?" "Ummmmmm," said the doctor. "Continue." "Well, the family got to talking about old times, and brother Elmo began kidding me about Esmerelda, my old high school sweetheart. He said she still asked him about me every time she saw him. Of course, Trellis Mae isn't usually jealous, but--." "Of course not," agreed the doctor. "Go on " "Well, while we were discussing that the turkey got burned. Then my two nephews got hungry, and we gave them each a drumstick to quiet them. Well, you know boyjs will be boys. They began to hit each other w'th the drumsticks and got gravy stains all over our now sofa. "Oh, yes. and It was d u r i n g d i n - ner that Clarence broke the television set. It was a purf accident. He just got up and started twirling the knobs fast, and something broke. It might have happened to anybody." "Yes. yes. And then?" "Well, after dinner we were having wine and Fay, my sis.ter-in-law Poland, Homania. B u l g a r i a , Czechoslovakia, H u n g a r y and China. Wobbly are India, Indo- China, Burma, Malaya, Indonesia. Tottering are Iran, Egypt, Jordan, Iraq, Morocco. It's a nasty picture of treachery, murder and mischief that are paying handsome dividends. It is the way of the terrorist, by which the Bolsheviki u n d e r m i n e d t h e Czarist rule in Russia and eventually came into power. Stalin was one of the most adept of the terrorists of those days, and as a master in the art, has raised it to world scope. The Vishinskys, the Gromykos and the Maliks talk peace in world assemblies, while the real dirty work goes on everywhere. One in ten Russians is in political prisons, enslaved laborers. As dissenters have been purged, bitterness has grown. All of Russia and her empire is terrorized by fear of secret police and the military. It is a disgruntled, disillusioned mob held in bondage by ·rtned guards. It offers a great opportunity for the kind of underground work we did so well ir occupied countries in the last war. We must recognize the kind of war Stalin has chosen to wage and meet fire with fire. Our weapon should be the truth, and the mean to set men free. They are tradi tional American weapons. Thei are more powerful than atom bombs, and leave no shambles fo Communists "to exploit after th bombs are loosed and the million are blown up in smoke. In thi kind of war, Russia, the victor, i yet to expose a single Russian sol diet", the United States, the loser has suffered nearly a hundre thousand casualties in Korea alone and has barely earned a stale mate. It is time we recognized thi; war we are in for what it is and turned it on the enemy in his owi homeland, where millions will rise to drive out the usurpers, given half a chance.

Ferguson Idea Called Unique WASHINGTON. Nov. 27 f/P~ Joseph T. Ferguson. Democrat who lost the 1350 Senate race to Republican Senator Taft of Ohio, s,aid that Taft's campaign was partially subsidized by the government. In a statement prepared for a S e n a t e Elections subcommittee, Ferguson declared the government "was cheated out of tax money" because large companies ran political advertising, deductible for tax- purposes, which supported Taft's successful campaign for reelection. The subcommittee yesterday heard Taft testify that labor and Democratic organizations s p e n t three times as much for Ferguson as was spent for him. Taft siud he thinks outlays in his behalf added up to about ten cents a voter. Asserting that S5.000.000 had been sbcnt by the Republicans in Ohio, Ferguson said there ought to be a law prohibiting large firms from charging the cost of political advertising to operational expense, making it "deductible for tax pur- Today In Washington Vandenberg's Views Confirm Those Of MacArthur With Reference To Korean War By DAVID LAWRENCE WASHINGTON. Nov. 27--The truth comes out at last. Gen. Hoyt S. Vandenberg, chief ot the U. S. Air Forces, has confirmed the military soundness ot the position taken by Gen. Douglas MacArthur with reference to the war in Korea. For speaking out while there was still time to save American lives from being lost, General MacArthur was dismissed by President Truman. For speaking out now--after the lives have been lost--no action will be taken against General Vandenberg, and none of course should be, but it shows that the American people have been denied the truth for many months as their own government has deliberately handed to the enemy a military advantage that has no precedent in the wars of history. In reporting on his inspection trip to Korea, General Vanden- bcrg writes: "Almost overnight China has become one of the major air powers of the world. Obviously it has attained this status as the direct beneficiary of another power possessing the essential industrial and technical resources that Communist China itself lacks." Here is an indictment of United Nations policy by a member of the U. S. Joint Chiefs of Staff. For it was the members of the U. N. v.-ho denied the American air forces the ODportunity to bomb bases in Manchuria. General Vandenberg adds: "Our control of the air in north ·west Korea, although by no means lost, is not as firm as it was." That single sentence tells the story of military delay and military defeat accomplished by a refusal to follow up normal military advantages. General Vandenberg puts it this way: "However severe the fighting. however great the effort, the air war over Korea so far has been a limited war, a war in which the blows that might lead to a decision have been withheld." Why have these blows been with- icld? The answer «r!ven last May before the Senate Armed Services committee by meribcrs of t h o Administration was t h a t there was a 'ear the war might soread. Ru«- sia, therefore, has successfully in- :imidated the American government More than 100,000 American casualties have been expended in a war that was not fought with maximum power. That will take a lot of explanation by President Truman and Secretary of State Acheson to the parents and relatives of the boys who were asked to make such an unprecedented sacrifice to fear. General Vandenberg has written into the record a more devastating indictment than General MacArthur ever wrote. For the Air Force chief says now: "The surest and most economical way of establishing air supremacy is to shatter an enemy air force on the ground--to destroy systematically the bases from which his aircraft operate together with ground facilities that make it possible for thein to operate, and the factories that provide a flow of replacement for his air force in being. "Under the ground rules estab lished at the outset of the Korean war, it is impossible for us to gain air supremacy over the Chinese Communist air force under the classical definition. We, on our side, for reasons that we all understand, have followed a policy of no' attacking the strongholds of enemy air power directly across the Yalu." But do all of us understand those reasons? Who established those "ground rules"? And when the forthcoming truce is signed, does it mean that the buildup beyond the Yalu will continue and that the inspection which is sunposed to be one of the terms of the truce will not extend to the air bases beyond the Yalu? And will the Communist \\ish command have a "_*ee hand to continue to mount such air forces as can swoop down at any moment and attack all our air bases in l-'orea whenever it suits them to break the truce? General Vandenberg ha; revealed the perilous portion of "130,000 American troops. The draft calls for more troops to re"'ace ihem are goinr on every month in Increasing numbers. Meanwhile, Russia still remains a member of the United Nations though P member of the Joint Chiefs o'jcnh' accuses her of aiding Communist China which regime has been df"larerl an "agTessor" by the U. N. Not a word of protest has come from Secretary Acheson at the U.

Edgar Emrlch report d on two projects, the Grange arlicipalior in the blood donation: nd the community scrap drive pro ram, sponsored by the Grange foi ic Memorial Hall fund. He said "This sort of thing amounted to the government subsidizing part of Tafl's campaign," he declared. "The government was actually cheated out of lav money that was used for a political candidate." This idea of Ferguson's came as something new to subcommittee members already m u l l i n f j over a series of suggestions made by Tnft. Tnft, a f t e r mentioning the figure of ten cents a voter, said that was little enouGh to offset what he called the "tissue of lies" he said was the basis o£ the campaign against him.

The Nation Today By JAMES MARLOW WASHINGTON, Nov. 27 (IP)-Families with men in Korea should keep their fingers crossed over reports the shooting may end by Christmas. It's possible. It's nice to think of. But it's unlikely. About this time a year ago we were told the men might ba home by Christmas, a.* least back in Japan. Then Gen. Douglas MacArthur sent his troops up close to the Yalu liver. Then the Chinese entered the war. which has continued since. For five and a half months representatives of the United Nations troops and of the North Korean and Chinese Communist troops have been meeting to find some way to end the shooting. This end to the shooting would not necessarily mean an end to the Korean war at all. For even if they could agree on an armistice, one side or the other, for one reason or another, could end the armistice any time and start the shooting all over again. Even so. the two sides agreed-and they had to meet many times before they could do even that much--that as a condition to agreement on a i aimistice they must first get together on four major points. But after five and a half months of meeJngb the two sides have managed to agree on only one of the four major points which must be agreed upon before there is an armistice. If it has taken them that long to agree on only one point, it hardly seems possible they can agree on the other maior points, all pretty ticklish, before Christmas. This is the one point upon which the two sides have agreed so far: If all four points are agreed upon in 30 days, then the shooting will jtop, but not until then, along the line, where the troops face each other now. If that agreement isn't reached in 30 days, then the shooting will stop along whatever line the troops face each other when there finally is agreement on the other three points. Briefly, these" are the other three points: 1. Policing or watching. How can each side check on the other to be sure it is not using the armistice to build up its strength for a new attack that would break the armistice? Since the Communists Personals Sgt.

Exchanging prisoners. This has a whole mine-field of delicate questions, particularly in view of recent U. S. Army reports that thousands of American prisoners were killed by the Communists. 3. This one swings around the question: If there is an armistice, do the two sides get their troops out of Kore_a? This is a beaut, all by itself. Only this weekend Secretary of State Acheson and other foreign- ministers of the Atlantic Pact nations were reportedly agreed against withdrawing troops from Korea. Among The Sick Mr. Samuel P.
