FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 1951 Living Space For Millions Excess populations gave Hitler, Mussolini and Tojo « popular argument in their aggressions, which they told their people were to provide living space for their surpluses. Since the second World War, the civilized world has found a better way to relocate people in need of living space. Through the International Refugee Organization, hundreds of thousands of people displaced by the war and its aftermath have been moved to new homes in this country and in other countries where a home and a job was awaiting them. Early in 193S, IRO goes out of existance. The International Labor Office called a conference in Naples last month to take over the problem. It failed because the U. S. Congress forbade our government from participating in an organization that included Communist nations in its membership. Another conference has been called in Brussels of Western nations only. It has moved swiftly to save the IRO fleet and organization which transported the refugees so successfully. It will be eligible to receive the ten million dollar appropriation made by Congress. The other participating countries are expected to triple or quadruple this sum. This will insure the continuation of this vital work, Once displaced persons are taken care of, a surplus of some five million is ready to be moved from overpopulated Italy, West Germany, Holland, Austria and Greece to underpopulated countries, such as Canada, Australia and Latin- American countries who are eager for more working population. Thus one of the causes of wars, past and future, may be eliminated by the expenditure of a few jp'iHons and a lot of good-will. Boyle Column BY HAL BOYLE NEW YORK, Nov. 30 .VP»--· The big city is patting itself on the back for the way it behaved during its first A-bomb alert. At the screaming of the first air raid sirens the streets emptied magically. The people took to the nearest bomb shelters. To get a New Yorker to do anything expected of him is quite an achievement, as he is by nature one of the most independent-minded creatures on earth, suspicious of any kind of "regimentation," Of course, some did show an unfortunate tendency to cluster at skyscraper windows to watch the show, but that is also a characteristic of New Yorkers. They don't like to miss anything. But generally they did quickly and calmly what the civil defense organization had instructed them to do. They are learning "the pattern of survival." the lessdn all must learn who live in these times. One interesting sidelight: The employes of Tass, the official Soviet news agency, paid no attention to the demonstration. They kept right on sending dispatches to Moscow. In an actual air raid it is hard to tell how people will react to it. During the early days of the great air raids on London a number became blinded for life as a result of curiosity. Windows through which they had been watching the spectacle suddenly were blasted, f i l l i n g their faces with glass shreds. It aecame a pastime with some to go up on rooftops to view the city nt night, ringed with huge fires and reverberating with explosions. Some people, s u f f e r i n g from claustrophobia, never were able to stand the mole-like existence in :he shelters. Others, including the onely. actually seemed to enjoy the companionship of the deep shelters in the "underground"-the London subway. They would go to sleep there whether there was an air raid or not, merely for the company. A substantial portion of the c-it- izenry, adopting the policy t h a t "if a bomb has your name on it it will f i n d you," remained c h e e r f u l l y n- bed during the n i g h t l y attacks. They figured it was about as pleasant a place to die as any. After the allies began their own tremendous bombardment of Berlin, the populnnce there came In time to adopt the same philosophy. One German lady told a friend of mine after the war"During your raids I used to sit in a warm bath sipping champagne. If I had to go, I wanted to go out ss comfortably ns possible.

Eleven men have Easy Way Out Leads Often Into Trouble Following natural inclination; and taking the "easy way" out o, situations involving moral Judgments is apt to lead to trouble Rev. W. DeWitt Dickey, pastor of the Mt. Airy Methodist church told members of the Frederick Optimist Club at their weekly meeting last night. Rev. Mr. Dickey applied the idea of "following the line of least resis tance" to the members of the Internal Kevenue Bureau and othei officials of the Federal govern ment who have been implicated in scandals in the past several months. These officials got in trouble, ho said, because they took the easy way of accepting bribes, instead of exercising judgment and refusing money. The speaker then applied this principle to youth, who must be taught to think and use judgment Instead of following the natural desires to avoid getting in to trouble, he said. The speaker was introduced by prograrii chairman Jack Shorrow and President Joe Doupnik presided. The meeting was held at the Southern Restaurant. Following the regular meeting, n special meeting pertaining to the Optimist auction at the Armory tonight, was held, and C. Lease Bussard, chairman of the auction committee, discussed plans. Profits from the auction will go to support the Optimist Boys Club.

Sterbinsky after which there was group singing by Lions and guests. The president then introduced the visitors and guests and a group of local teenagers sang and played popular numbers. Greetings were extended by District Governor William G. Heagy. ! The entertainment "Beat The Clock" was fun and frolic for all present. Dancing followed the entertainment with music furnished by a local orchestra. The program committee consisted of Charles R. Fuss, chairman, Robert E. Daugherty. Dr. D. L. Beegle, George L. Wilhide, J. Ralph McDonnell and'Cloyd W. Seiss. The charter members are Dr. W. R. Cadle, Clarence G. Frailey, Hobert H. Gillelan, Charles A. Harner, J. Ward Kerrigan, Francis S. K.

PURNELL BAILEY Wait on the Lord (Psalms 27:14) Many of us will see ourselves in an amusing fable of a Chinese farmer. To make his truck garden yield faster, he pulled the plants a little higher out of the ground each morning. He figured that this would put him ahead of the other gardeners, who just waited for the plants to grow up. Then one day he discovered that every plant had died. Our prayers seem to us unanswered when God does not" meet our time-table. Let us heed the word of the Pwlmirt.

HERE'NTHERE--Team mana- WASHINGTON, Nov. 30--Some body has figured out a way to pu the Communists on the spot in the Korean truce negotiations and ye maintain the theory that no cease- fire-is in effect or likely to b« til an armistice is signed. But, for practical purposes, If the Communist Chinese and North Koreans do not conduct offensive operations, the U. N, forces will operate on a defensive basis, too. No agreement is required to bring about such a stabilized condition on the battlefield. All that is necessary is world-wide publicity stating that one side will not move forward on the ground. Then it becomes necessary^ for the other side to accept such a state of affairs or to continue offense operations. The denial from Key West, Fla., that the President had ordered a cease-fire is correct. Nobody here ordered any such thing but, when it comes to selecting what strategy is to be used. on the battlefield, the supreme commander--in this case. Genera! Ridgway--can adopt any tactics of restraint that he desires and is not committed to them a moment longer than he cares to remain committed. The maneuver back of a self- restraint strategy is clear enough. The United Nations has been accused of carrying on a war of "aggression." The Communist propaganda broadcasts have insisted that the U. N. negotiators were seeking to prolong the war and didn't have a sincere desire to make a truce. By adopting measures of restraint in the matter of offense, the U. N. establishes clearly the principle that, while the talks have a chance of success, there wil be no effort to take advantage of the situation to move the battle line farther than has been agreed upon. As a matter of fact, there is nothing to be gained by risking lives in any operations of offense if at the end of the 30 days of negotiation an agreement will jiave been reached on a cease-fire, because at that lime the battle line is to be the same one that has already been agreed upon pending the disposition of the two points in dispute--the exchange of prisoners and the problem of inspection of possible build-ups behind the opposing forces. If, at the end of 30 days, the two items have not been settled, then the fighting goes on to another battle line, but whatever could be gained in territory during the 30 days would not be worth risking any casualties to get. This policy is understandable if U be conceded that the United I Nations memb«rf ar« merely trying to liquidate the Korean affair -with the least damage to human life and with no regard whttsoever for the possible consequence* of a stalemated war and stalemated peace. If, as a consequence of an armistice, the Communists accept the doctrine that they are supposed to have been defeated, that their aggression is presumed to have be«n repelled and that hence no further aggression will occur, then a settlement at the present battle line will have the effects claimed lor H by its proponent*. If, on the other hand, it it an uneasy truce with threats of a recurring war and with large numbers of American boys indefinitely bogged down guarding the battle line in Korea, it will be apparent that the psychological impression which the exponents of a "truce without peace" have been expecting to result will vanish from the international scene and tension will not lessen. On the page* of history the record will show that the U. N. forces went into Korea not only to repel aggression but to unify Korea and establish peace throughout the country--not just in the southern half which is under U. N. control. The great powers of the world will be revealed as having failed to, defeat the armies of North Korea and Communist China by driving them out of the north country. For the Communists have consistently refused to allow any'U. N. machinery to function in northern Korea. If the armistice results merely n a subsequent deadlock on polit- cal questions which are to be taken up after the cease-fire, it will be debatable just what the whole U. N. undertaking will actually have accomplished to enchance either the prestige of the power of that instru- nent of collective security on which he nations outside the Commun- st bloc have pinned their hopes for the maintenance of peace in the world. There is some talk that the U. N. might be willing to trade the item of inspection and give it up if an exchange of prisoners can be effected. The desire to stop the fight- ng now--the desire for peace at almost any price--is the basic mo- ive of the present negotiations and t would not be surprising to see a 'de facto" cease-fire develop into a permanent one as months and months go by without any inspec- ion system agreed upon and without any exchange of prisoners and jerhaps without any more than an nformal cease-fire of the type now eing reported from Korea.

In the home ^It- day, said Mrs. Werner, women have more leisure time and should devote some of the time to civic problems. In either party or non-partisan groups women should study the business of government starting with their own local precinct and gradually branching out, stated tr]e, speaker. Local taxes should ' be analyzed to see what they pay fof and whether increases or decreases would be feasible. jflH haps, said Mrs. Werner, the most important action for both men and women would be to make use of their right to vote.
