WEDNESDAY, NOV. 28, 1951 Swing Back To Discipline The three decades after the end of the first World War saw a breakdown of the discipline of earlier · days. The strict discipline based on religious principle and social custom gave way to a hands-off policy that produced perhaps the mcst tmdisciplined generation in our history. Now the pendulum is swinging back again. Parents, many of them the products of the undisciplined age, want KMnething better for their children than to be allowed to grow like Topsy. They are intelligent enough to search for guidance, as they struggle to restore order and calm in their homes. The Journal of Pediatrics currently lists the causes of parental confusion. Their problems multiply when they expect implicit obedience; when restrictions are too numerous; when demands on the child are unreasonable and beyond 1 his comprehension, or when they are inconsistent and unpredictable; when parents are over-permissive and when they lack a sense of authority; when the household is unordered, and when standards with- iWthe home differ from those of the rest of the neighborhood. There is no magic formula. The personality of the child, the aims and personality and cultural backgrounds of the parents, and the type of society in which the family Eves influence and determine the type of discipline imposed and its success with a given child. Cut Back In Budget The $65.5 billion defense budget authorized by the last Congress seems to have been the high water mark of expenditures for our own military and arms aid. The cut back from that record peace time figure under consideration by defense authorities is reported as high as $11.5 billion, or about one- rixth. Th« technical reason given for the downward revision is that authorized funds cover much of the planned expansion of the services and their weapons and equipment. There is also a mounting fear of unbalance between military and civilian expenditures, which might bring a revolt in public support of the mobilization effort. The need for a stable economy as a bulwark of defense is axiomatic, though seems lost sight of. The economic crises in France and England are having a dual effect in Washington. They are causing re-examination of our own economy to make sure no specter of bankruptcy will suddenly face us some cold morning. And they are forcing a realization that we will have to bail both our allies out again, as their troubles are partly due to their rearming at our urging. Cutting back our own military expenditures will help provide funds to succor them. No one is saying anything about perhaps the most important reason of all. The next session of Congress will begin in a Presidential election year. It will not be good politics to carry into the campaign either an unwieldy budget or an unstable economy.

JAMES F, ZIMMERMAN Ath'etic Director Frederic'- High School Frederick, Nov. 27. Boyle Column By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK. Nov. 28 (/P)--Signing of n cease-fire line agreement in Korea is only a step toward an armistice. There still remain some vexing problems to be solved before there is any real hope for a truce-peace in that uneasy peninsula. A top problem, of course, is the task of getting the enemy to agree to let joint allied-Communist teams travel freely to all parts of Korea to see that armistice terms are carried out fully. The Reds, for reasons of their own. are notoriously reluctant to permit outsiders into territory. That stubborn "fear of the foreigner" may be the rock upon which armistice negotiations still will founder. But it is hard to see how the allies can withdraw from their position. They cannot blindly agree to a pact in the enforcing of which they had no share. Another thorny issue is the problem of prisoner exchange. It has many facets. For one thing, the return of allied prisoners of war will reveal the full toll of Red atrocities among the captives. Nearly 11,000 Americans are listed as missing in action. The fact must be faced that only a fraction of these men remain alive, probably fewer than half. The same uncertainty covers the fate of the other U. N. missing, in- cludin;: many, many thousands of South Korean soldiers. On the other hand, the allies hold 160,000 prisoners on the island of Koje off Korea. The figure includes 18.000 Chinese and 40,000 North and South Korea civilians considered dangerous. DesDile this ratio, the Reds are sure to press for a straight exchange of all prisoners. They will want all their own people back, just as they did in Europe after the la«t World War. But what will they do with them when they get them back? A large number of the prisoners are deserters and defectors from the Chinese and North Korean armies Th" alliei, dropped millions of leaflets urging them to throw down their arms and come through the U. N. lines Thousands of men did so. What will happen to them if they are now handed bacft to the Reds? Some American army officers believe they will be put to death at once as traitors to the Communist cause. Will 1he U. N. negotiators compel thc^e men to return to th* bitter levencc of their Communist leaders'.' Or will each prisoner be given his choice of going or staying.' There Is a moral problem involved in the decision. And there is also a military problem. As one office put it: "If we foicc thc^e deserters to go back, it won't look good to any f u t u i e possible defectors." RETUUNUNG HOME With thr- 7th Inf. Div. in Korea-Set. Algic L.

Today In Washington Interesting To See How Indignant Democrats Now Become At Type Of Campaign Waged Against Taft By DAVID LAWRENCE WASHINGTON, Nov. 28--Scrv ator Taft certainly has put into the record a graphic story of "composite photographs" and scurrilous litera ture used against him in his 1950 campaign in Ohio. The tactics ap pear to be far worse than anything complained of by Senator Tydings In his last year's campaign in Maryland. It will be interesting to see how indigaant all those critics of Senator John Marshall Butler, Republican of Maryland, will become now that they see what kind of campaign the Democrats waged in Ohio. President Truman in political speech last week alluded to the Maryland campaign, blaming the alleged misrepresentations by the Republicans. While he mentioned the large sums spent in the 1950 campaign in Ohio, he didn't refer to all the malicious statements made about Senator Taft by the labor- union campaigners'. Nor did he explain why his Department of Justice failed to -·prosecute violations of the Federal law which forbids political contributions by labor unions or corporations. Senator Taft, in his lengthy testimony before the Senate sub-committee on elections, made some recommendations for changes in existing law, but he didn't point out how the party in power can be persuaded to prosecute its own supporters who, in the midst of campaigns, happen to violate laws now on the statute books. As a matter of fact, Senator Taft's recommendations for changes in the law p o s s i b l e for the most part neither realistic nor practicable. His first point that the Federal laws be impartially enforced is a good one, especially the recommendation that, if the Attorney General refuses to act, some other method of direct action be permitted. But when the Ohio Senator proposes that "it might be possible to require the filing of all literature dealing with the election of national officers with some official in Washington before such literature !s circulated." he introduces by implication the question of censorship, though he specifically disavows any such intention. What good would the filing of the literature and the statements as to the number printed and the sponsoring organization do if the literature were scurrilous or in other respects objectionable to one or the other of the candidates involved? Would it merely be filed? How could this be done without depriving both sides of valuable time, especially in the last 10 days of a campaign? When Mr. Taft says some law might be passed "punishing direct misstatements of fact in a campaign," he concedes that the "shading between fact and opinion is often very close." But it will be contended in rebuttal that the existing state laws of slander and libel are adequate protection. Anything else treads closely on the border of suppression of free speech and a free press. The so-called "composite .photograph" which was used in Maryland against Senator Tydings and in Ohio against Senator Taft is a despicable device but it is not a violation of Federal laws. It might be actionable under state laws. Many cartoons are despicable. So are many published articles issued by the press itself, but the constitutional safeguard protects extreme statements. This is because it is felt that public opinion can deal effectively with such practices. Indeed, extreme attacks often have boomeranged and elected the candidate attacked. The assumption, widely made by some critics, that the electorate must be protected against a supposed lack of intelligence is reminiscent of the totalitarian concept that the people cannot be trusted with Democratic processes. No election campaign is perfect and many a contest has in it elements that are to be deplored, but m the long run the people know how to deal with exaggerations and falsehoods because the power to refute and deny them is not lost to the opposing candidate. It insults the intelligence of the people of the great state of Maryland to say that they voted out Senator Tydings because of a "composite photograph" which depicted him as shaking hands with Earl Browder of the Communist party. In Ohio, Senator Taft was the victim of a somewhat similar "composite." and it didn't prevent his victory. Senator Tydings lost because of a split in his party and for the usual reasons that occur in American election campaigns. On the day after election when Senator Tydings gave his analysis of the defeat, he did not include any reference to "composite photographs" or scurrilous literature but appraised the political trends in Maryland quite objectively. The problem of regulating the quality of congressional campaigns is not one for the Federal statutes but for greater publicity and debate. The Senate's investigating committee is putting the spotlight on the recent campaigns, and that is all to the good provided the acts of both part'cs arc thoroughly and impartially investigated.
