WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 5, 1951 The Wounded Survive Next to the hope of an armistice induced by the agreement on the ceasefire line, the best news on Korea this week comes from the chairman of the Army's medical research and development board Colonel John R. Wood, who told of the remarkable recoveries being made among the wounded in battle, and the plans for reducing battle casualties further. The death rate from battle wounds is down to 2.5 percent, that is 975 men in a thousand wounded survive their injuries. That is one-half the rate in World War II. The bat- t!cSeld death rate, however, is only slightly less than the 20 percent average of World Wars I and II. The emphasis now is on reducing this as dramatically as the survival rste of wounded. Development of lightweight combat body armor is the ma'n hcnc for reducing the battlefield death rate. Large scale tests of this body armor will soon be made in Korea. It is designed to protect vulnerable parts of the body, based on the studied 4.600 battle casualty cases. The medical corps of all three armed forces, the Army. Navy and Air, were jointly awarded the 1951 scientific medal of the American Pharmaceutical Manufacturers Association for their achievement in reducing fatalities after battle injuries. The record would seem to indicate they richly deserved the honor. Letters To The Editor Victor Cullen Hospital Patients Appreciated Recent Entertainment.

Gross, Volume Pays Off Detroit, cradle of the assembly line, which once brought transportation to America at so low a cost, that a car in every garage ha* become almost a national axiom, is once more proving that volume pays off. This time, it is in something that defies belief, for we all know how high the cost of living, or more exactly, the cost of eating, has gone. Yet, a Detroit restauranteur, after a succession of weekly losses, dusted off his 1939 menus, and offered such forgotten Items as pork chop dinner at 45 cents, beefsteak dinner at 90 cents, tenderloin steak with French fries, salad and coffee at 05 cents, hamburger steak with the same, at 50 cents, etc. The response was electric. The turnover was so great, the first week showed a $500 profit, where a $100 loss had grown the week before on the much higher 1951 prices. Higher cost of raw materials and labor gave way to the great volume of business this simple act produced It should be a lesson to the motor manufacturers, who have forcotten prove their standard of living. The major struggle today is in countering the appeal of Communism which is said by its followers to offer more than democracy. Our talk should be concerned with expending freedom and not just with it, said the Grange their own original formula and have priced cars out of the reach of most of us, as well as to manufacturers generally who only see the r--;ssity to rai,se prices to cover costs of raw materials and labor. instead of looking for their cover in greater turnover, and smaller margin with greater volume, preserving Master. U. S. System Efficient The total agriculture has never been sufficient to supply the needs of the world. However, the American system has become so efficient that only f i f t e e n out of every h u n - dred are needed to produce the necesary food and fiber for t h i s nation. In other nations the proportion is much greater. The other 85 people I n " the United States are free to expand the value of the raw materials in various forms of industry and business. For this reason the American standard of living is higher than any other nations. World population is expanding and the land area for agricultural purposes is not expanding rapidly enough to keep up with population Since our' system of increased production has been so MicceMful, said the speaker, \ve must pray that the other peoples of the world w i l l take n "leaf from our book to increase the world total."

Senator from Maine, Republican, last week questioned William D. Gradison, one of the T«ft campaign managers in Ohio, about Senator Taft's statement concerning the CIO Political Action committee's early relationship to the Communist cause, he said he didn't know much about it himself but undoubtedly Mr. Tafl could back it up. An examination of the testimony given before the House Un-American Activities committee brings out some significant information about low the ClO'a PAC originated and the many Communists who were among its first sponsors. Senator Taft's statement as quoted before the Senate committee investigating the Ohio Senatorial election of 1950 was as follows: "The PAC was conceived in Communism, had Communist midwives assisting in its birth and was carefully nurtured in its formative period by Communist leaders." Commenting on this, Senator Smith of Maine asked Mr. Gradison: "Wouldn't you say that this is a pretty extravagant statement you couldn't back up with facts?" While Mr. Gradison didn't have any information about it at all, the House Un-American Activities committee issued on March 29, 1944, a printed report of 200 pages devoted entirely to the subject and presumably it was this report which occasioned Senator Taft's statement. Among the conclusions reached by .he House committee were these: "The CIO executive board which established the Political Action Committee is composed of 49 mem- ers among whom there are at east IS who~e records indicate hat they lollow the 'line' of the Communist party with undeviatlng oyalty. . . "The latter half of this report presents in alphabetical order the tommunist records of 34 leaders in. he work of the CIO Political Action ommittee. We have gone to some engths in offering a mess of de- ailed evidence in order that there may be no doubt in' any quarter hat these individuals are properly nd fairly labelled 'Communist'. . ." During the same period, and in act until 1948. Lee Pressman was eneral counsel of the CIO and an npoitant figure in its top councils. Ir. Pressman appeared before the louse Un-Americnn Activities com- nittee on August 28, 1930, and con- under oath that he had been member of the Communist party have had contacts and dealings with known leaders of the Communist party whom I have met from time to time. , "Mr. Tavenner (committee counsel : And what was the nature of those contacts which yoir have men. tioned? "Mr. Pressman: They would discuss with me their viewpoints, their recommendations, and suggestions, with respect to organizational activities of the CIO while I was counsel for the CIO. I discussed those ·problems with these people. When they made recommendations or suggestions which I deemed to Be of assistance or helpful to the CIO, I accepted them. .. " .-, In another part of the testimony the same day occurred this passage: Mr. Nixon: In other words, in 1948 you had not severed your connections, ideologically speaking, with the Communist party? "Mr. Pressman: That is correct. "Mr. Tavenner: And therefore your action up to that time was governed by your Communist party views and beliefs that existed then? "Mr. Pressman: 1 would say affected rather than governed." It is interesting to note that the 1944 House committee report charged that in a "majority of all the unions affiliated with the CIO." the ·committee found "that Communist leadership is strongly entrenched." In giving the list of 21 unions, it is to be noted that a number of these have been expelled as a result of action taken by present members of the CIO executive board. «_ 1 . _ ! _ « · . _ ' Clarifying Positions On Disarmament PARIS, Due. 5 OP--United Nations Assembly President Luis Padilla Nervo said today Russia and the western powers are clarifying their positions,' as never before, in secret disarmament talks here. But as the fifth session of the Big Four disarmament conference ended today, there was no indication that West and East had reached any substantial agreement on how to end the world's arms race. The Mexican diplomat is presiding over the sessions, attended by Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Y. Vishinsky. U. S. Ambassador Philip Jessup. British Minister of State Selwyn Lloyd and French Delegate Jules Moch. He said today's meeting was confined to a discussion of point three of the French-British-American disarmament resolution and the Soviet amendments to -it. Point three directs a disarmament commission to prepare a draft treaty for the regulation, limitation and balanced reduction of all armed forces and armaments. The Soviet amendment knocks cut the whole of point three from the resolution and substitutes a request to the General Assembly to set up an international control commission under the authority of ' Side Glances Clnurle E.

Parity Formula Good Price rcR-uIntcs the flow of production and this should not be interfered with, said the speaker The parity formula in use now is good and those who desire to use the old parity formula arc guilty of a negative approach brought oil by selfishness. One of the biggest jobs of agriculture is to be sure that we do nroduce aboundantly, s a i d t h e Grange leader. His job is to try to see the dangers to agriculture that would impede gi eater production. But, he continued, it i.s important to be caretul in meeting the dangers. Some people, said Mr. Newsom, want a ban placed on recruiting agricultural workers for industry where there is the lure of higher wages. Since such a ban, unless all workers were frozen to their jobs, would destroy a principle of the incentive system, Mr. Newsom stated that he opposed it Agriculture cannot profit to the detriment of any other segment of national economy. All of American economy will have to recognize that something is the matter with the American price system and change it but not by interfering with the incentive system or by restricting competition, he said. There must be a system to protect agriculture from sudden change but the b a s i c philosophy of the Grange, which advocates temperance, must be followed even if it is the most difficult path said the speaker.

Mr. Pressman testified In part: "Over the past number of years I which has been moving with commendable zeal in recent years to purge the CIO of'Communist influences. But it is plain that Senator Taft was basing his statement about the early days of the CIO-PAC on Congressional committee findings, giving names and evidence of the fact that union leaders identified with the Communist cause were active in the formation of the CIO-PAC. The Dining Car and Railroad Food Workers union mentioned yesterday by this correspondent was incorrectly referred to as an AFL union. It .actually was formed by persons ousted from the AFL after that organization amended its constitution to prohibit Communists from holding office in the AFL.

Money Spent in such projects as the Crusade for Freedom is more important than money spent In a lot of other government functions. If we believe in the American system, said Mr. Newsom, we must accept our responsibility as individuals. Buv, more important, is the battle against those who put all their faith in government controls and those who would increase wages and not at the same time output. The Grange must accept a group responsibility and work for the agricultural segment of America.
