'·! ·';.. jYctone obstacle still lay in Italy's path. '·'", The Soviet Union and i t s satellites refused ·'. to agree to revision. Tcclmically, there- ·-fore, thepad had to be viewed as contiii- \ " uing in legal foi'ce. ; $ i fThe Rusm'nns like to put these legal '/ nictties to work for them as they t h r o w · :'i up,'barriers to objectives desired'by the , ·"·' .west. ·;- ·'·' |So there is a marked show on I his side : : ; of the Il'on Curtain when Italy is observed ;-:';. tunning a technicality to fts own ad: s .-; vantage. · · _ · ' · . ;·-:': jA little while back .'Russia, acting in i':." the U.N. Security Comicil. vetoed Italy's ? - · . ·dniissioii to ihc United Nations for the fifth lime. And on thfs occasion the IUlian« did rjiore than just vent their finircr on the Kremlin. They .convcrtvl Soviet obstrcpcrousness into a device for completely voiding the ixjacc treaty. In it firm note to the Russian govern- mont, Italy declares that Moscow's constant vetoes of Italian admission to-the. U.N.'amount to vfolation of the', treaty. Rome slates that it therefore no longer considers itself bound by its terms. The Italians point out that Russia as- mimed, in the treaty preamble, an undertaking to "support Italy's application to become a member of the United Nations." They do not see how five vetoes can be judged f u l f i l l m e n t of this obligation. With a nice display of ncr\p, t h e Italians go further. They make plain to the Krfimlin that they not only feel free to ignore arms ceilings.fixed by the treaty, but they intend to make no further, repara- 'tions payments to Moscow. This fs hilling the Communists whore il hurts. The inevitable screams from Moscow will nol conceal Ihc fact, thai the Reds have been beaten at their own game. Actually the Italians have given them language and tactics of t h e only .sort they understand. Furthermore, the Russians' moral position before Italy and the world is p i t i f u l - ly weak. They have already shattered peace treaties with the .satellite nations, making unllaleral revisions to suil th'cm- fldves--without (he slightest gesture toward the requirements of t r u e inlcrna- tipnal legality. There is no'pain,quite so excruciating ·s that induced by the use of one's own favorite weapons. This is the anguish the Russians must now bear. And as they suffer, Italy prepares to take a larger role in the defense of free Europe. Bruce Biossat You get to Hie end of your rope quicker when you have a habit of stringing vour friends along. THE WASHINGTON Merry-Go-Round ·r DREW rcAMO* ' Suit Lake Clly, Utah--At dinner with Gw. J. Bracken Lee, the subject of government spend- In*! came up. I thought 1 had said some rather strong thinK» nboul certain forms of government wajlc but found I wnn mild compared with the new Kcpubljcan'Rovtarnor of Utah. 1 A delightful nnd vigorous person, Ihc governor claimed that coverrirnent spending was "crcrpinu Socialism," the ruination of the nation, and that practically all spending should be - curlnilcd by Washington. 1 tried lo polnfout that certain Males nnd even bis . business might squawk to high hcnvcn If "crc'eplnR socialism" were stopped but Hie governor is an energetic talker, andjl fear ! was not loo convincing. Litln I did some research on "creeping Socialism" and its benefits lo certain stales and business (roups. Here are Ihc results: * * * "U.S. Slrel Corporation--Biggest boon lo Utah has been Ihe opcniUon of s steel mill at Geneva. Governor Lee told me this greatly increased the population of Suit Lake Ciiy and the surrounding area and contributed ccncrously . to local prosperity. Ilnwcvcr, the U.S. Steel Corporation al first opposed-Ihc-production of steel in Ulan. Judge Klbcrl Gary, former head of U.S. Stool, scoffed at the idea when i interviewed him ninny years aco, nnd his successors continued In scoff--even a f t e r Pearl Harbor: In fact they were sn opposed to Western steel production .thai the federal fiov- ·crnmcnt had to take the initiative itself /or he Gcjicva plant. . Uncle Sam took all the risk and after proving that the slecl Industry in the Far West could be successful, (hen U.S. Steel, supported by some astute lobbying by Ex-G'ov. Herbert Maw 'of Utah and Ex-Sen. Abe Murdoch,-got the federal government to sell the Geneva plant to U.S. Steel*for about 20 cents on the dollar. , . The steel plant cost the taxpayers $191,320,000. It was sold lo U.S. Steel for $17,175,000. Direct subsidy lo U.S. Steel and the state of Utah was $144,151,000. * * + ' Fort Douglas. Ulan--On the foothills just above Salt Lake City stands Fort Douglas, 'an Imporlaril Army Installation. After the war, a large hunk of the fort's territory, plus important buildings, were turned over to Governor Lee's slain of Ulah, and are now a part of the University of Utah. '. -· * . * ' * Airlines subsidies--Utah, an inland state, benefits from quick airline, transportation. Most people don'l realize. It, .but the airlines, though now big business, get an annual subsidy of. $95,00(1,000 through "creeping Socialism." On top of this they gel the advantage of 70,000 miles of air lanes serviced by radio range stations, beacons and t r a f f i c controls, all paid for by the federal government. The railroads have to pay for their own signals, telegraph and upkeep of (heir their tracks, while the airllnr.1 gel like services /roc. In addition, the airplanes get the use of airports, . initially supplied by municipalities, tax-free. The railroads nay taxes on their property. In 195.1 the taxpayers shelled out $21.361,0-10 to conslruct' new towers, hcacnns, and radar fur the ninvays, plus anolhcr $73,931.733 for personnel to operate these safety aids, plus another $37,000,000 for runways mid construction work at airports. The nil-lines are now big business. I agree with.Governor Lee that this is "creeping Socialism." But he'll find thai big. business will be the first to howl if it's flopocd. * * + Shipping subsidies--Also thp first In yell if we slop "creeping socialism" will be another blg- buslness grouo, the shinning lines. American shipowners get $30,000.000 annually in oncrat- Ing subsidies. On lop of this the Uniled Stales lines last year got a construction subsidy of $IR,225,000 plus an indirect subsidy of $24.0RI.OOO for national defense In building Ihc new vessel the Uniled Slates. American Kxpnrt Lines Is due to get a $26,- ' 000,000 subsidy for the Indcocndnncc and the Constlliilion, but after Controller General Lindsay Warren objected In "creeping Socialism" and proposed curtailing subsidies, tho American Export Lines threatened lo dump the ships in the lap of Uncle Sam. * *. * Public roads--Another form of creenlng Socialism is the government'!! annual subsidv to Ilic stales lo build highways. This costs the federal taxpayers about half a billion dollars a year and Is allocated lo Governor Lee of Utah and the other 47 slates. If this were cui-tallcd every bus line, truck- Ing company, and many "private motorists,would be at the .door of Congress In about 24 hours demanding that "creeping Socialism" for the highways he reinstated * ·+ * Doctors subsidies--In Ulah, Sen. Elbcrt Thomas was defeated partly because he favored a public health bill. The doctors rose up in arms against him. railed him an exponent of creeping Socialism. What Ihc public doesn't realize, however. Is lhat the doctors got fholr own direct subsidy in the form of $30,578,000 from the federal government last year, much of it going to medical institutions for research. However, this money is largely in the form of gifts so that the doctors control it once they get it from the government. The taxpayers have no means of checking as to how efficiently It is spent. These medical grants arc made necessary They'll Do It Every Time ;_ Mf?.

Thus, Walter Winchcll, who has done an outstanding job of money raising for cancer work, has been'able to raise only $5,000,000 in five years, whereas the federal government has contributed as much as $150,000,000 in a single year for cancer research. In brief, much as the governor of Utah and I both deplore creeping Socialism I'm afraid there arc a lot of other people in the nation who don'l.

Yesterday you Ulk«d to Mr. Starr about me. Thii morning I wu (red. J'm getting a little fed up with this behlnd-the- bick talk, Mr. Cota. i thinU If time we had some face-to-face deaUngi. Since your interest in m* ii so lively, maybe you'll explain a few thing*--such as why I'm being invenlgated by the FBI." "I did not call Mr. Starr," the luperintendem pointed out, the black eyei darting In the huddled f»ce. -He called me. He asked me how aoon you were going to be needed h«rt on in atomic research project, tnd 1 told him I know of no projtet at this hospital (or which your Mrvlces would be ir- .eeptablt. When b« asked me\why, 1 told him the truth. I told him why you left here last June. Ai one employer to mother, 1 owe him thtt Information. I wouldn't think of withholding it As for the ·federal Investigation, I had nothing to do with that. That Is the doing of your friend, Dr. Pclle- tler." Peter catapulted of! the chair ·rm.

Hi turad iwiy from Coti M Uw.wladow, ·quirted *·'- it » HI ·( trtpf-trim- ming, making It clear tht untl Dr. Pelletier arrived\ there woul be no further discussion. "You're a verj foolish young man," Cota said into the silence "Your desperado actions will ge you nowhere. I advise you to five up any false hope Dr. Pelletier may have liven you about letting back here. As lon| as I'm superintendent, 1 mean to keep Bolsheviks out." Peter did not deljn to reply continued to belabor the ball- fringe. J)R. PELLETIER lumbered In out oi breath. H* nodded curtly to Cota, made formal mention of his name. "What'i up, Piter?" he'asked. It was typical of Pelletier who, «rh«p« In guilt and sham* at the asen«s of hit ipecles, seemed bent on a personal crusade to expunge tvil. The heartening thing was that the generosity of one man could so efficaciously cancel he hosllllty of ten. It had been hi! way before. Pttcr had known hen that without Pelletler's launch friendship, he would have n time succumbed to the dubious scape of neurotic deprtaalon. Peter's tension eased somewhat, wultlccd by the man's presence. There was reassurance In the humorous arch of thick eyebrow, In he bulbous lidded eyes, 'the arro- ant mustache, the skin that hunt ndtr the chin, rough at wattles, luffed untidily Into a white tarched collar, IVwai a llved-ln act, batUrtd and yet visibly un- aunted by tlmt and kxpcrlanct nd tha tight of human btlnfi In etlon.

I figured Mr. ,Cota here might be ai the back of things. He tried to tell me that you're responsible for the investigation. I'didn't fall for it." "It's perfectly true. Peter." Dr. Pelletier said. "1 didn't want to tell you about it until things were definite. Didn't want to get your hopes up prematurely. I requested a grant for subsidy of our splenic tissue work. I specified In my request that 1 had you in "mind for the job. Under the new law, all beneficiaries of AEC fellowships have to hat/e FBI clearance even though they don't have access to restricted data." He turned to Cota. 'I felt certain that your iuipiclons of Dr. Surinov's loyalty would be removed by an'FBI report. We iced Dr. Surinov for this work, Mr. Cota. I'm sure you're too in- erested In the advance of our lospital to let personal grievance* nterfere with its contribution to science." 'T C E R T A I N L Y am," CoU snapped. "Mj objections to ' employing Suriiiov are far from wrsonal. As for clearahc*, 1 can ell you right now He has ai much hance as a snowball-in hadnl" . Cola's excitement alerted both men. They stood silent, attentive, -raiting for him to tip his hand. "I received a letter from the ttomic Energy Commission last ·eck," Cota went on, "tr.'ormlnf ic hospital that your request for money had been acted upon favot- bly pending Surinov's clearance.", 'hat was the first 1 knew of your request. Dr. Pelletier. You must lave known that all grants comt irougl. this office, but perhaps ou thought I wouldn't flnd out ntll It was too late.

As a practic matter this means the restoralio ot the soundness of sterling. Fo more-.than half of the total tun over of · the world trade i s . con ducted In sterling. A sound money is one which stable--in that its purchasin power does not change .radical! --and is convertible--which mean hat .it can be spent not only a home but also abroad. Money is not sound if, havin earned it by work or trade, "a m»; cannot spend or invest it frecl at home and abroad. It is no eally money in the full sense o he word if he can spend it only after getting a license from an ifficial, and if in addition he ha eason to fear that if he saved nd did not spend the money im mediately, -if would be. devalued by a decision of the officials. Free societies are those in which people cto not have their lives planned and managed for them by the government. Free peoples have to do business with one another. They cannot safely do business with one another, they cannot be hired or hire, they cannot buy or sell, they cannot spend or invest--unless there is a 'money which all can believe in. . A . totalitarian slate can earry on its totalitarian affairs, though even this only' with' perpetual violence, without real money. A totalitarian state can conduct the public business with nothing' but a complicated system of official licenses, passes and'tickets." But any society which is not run by an omnipotent central government. be it capitalist like our own, or cooperative, or even feudal, must lave reasonably sound money if it is to work at all. People will cease :o trust one another if they cannot trust the money in which they do their business with one another. Without being too neat about it, we may say that 1951 was the year in which the balance of military power, was being redressed by American rearmament and the organization of the NATO alliance. The process was, of course, not completed in 1851. But it was decisively and successfully begun and there is wide and cumulative evidence to support the view that open orthodox military agtrcssion through the front door has become much less probable than people feared it would be;at this time.. We may say that 1952. is the year in which the measures must be taken to avert the disintegration from within of many countries that arc being protected against external aggression. These measures cannot be decided upon or taken in Washington. In redressing the balance of military power this country was and remains the key country. But in redressing the monetary system of a large part of the free world, this country is bound to wait while Britain takes the ntcescary measures. These measures have to o* taken in London, and from London with the great realms of the Commonwealth, particularly with Australia, India, and Pakistan. * · · Our stake in ihe success of these measures is enormous, and at the proper time, which might be 12 months hence, we are Bound to participate in guaranteeing their success. We arei hot that far as yet, and no o'he in' public, life needs to .make any »peech or declaration about what he will or what he will -not do when the time comes, if it comes, to make sure that sterling which is again convertible into "dollars remains convertible into dollars. For the present we are entitled :o feel that though this is the worst of the British financial crises since he war, the' prospect is better han it has been in any other that he British will deal with it deeply and successfully. There is now food reason to think that the -hurchill government is commit- ed to stopping the internal in- latlon of money not only by taxes, estrictions, and austerity but by hutting down;'as we did last year lere in this country, u^on the automatic inflation of ' money lirough the central hanking «ys- em. The commitment 1 , of the Chur- hill government to do this is a ' ard one to carry out. It will call or a high order of statesmanship o carry it out so ihat.the hard- hip, which is inevitable in the TOCOSS o f , living within British leans, is not poisoned, by social njusticc. But the new policy must uccced. It cannot be allowed to nil. Were it to fail, the bank- uptcy, hunger and unemployment fhich would follow would have ncaiculable political consequences 'I over Asia nad Europe.. What more, were it to fail, the doc- ine and principles of the free conomy would be Irreparably iscreditcd. * * · The financial measures which ritain and the Commonwealth re now in the process of taking re, we should be -the first to' ecognize over here, based on the undamental principles of a free, s distinguished from 'a planned nd collectivist, economy. They re the principles which we pro- ss and, when we have the polit- al courage, insist on practicing. Are they obsolete principles, as ot only the Socialists but many - f the New Dealers ind .Fair ealers argue? Or arc they the ue and effective principles by /hich--givon wisdom, technical impotence, and political courage applying them--the people of ir world can keep themselves ce by making themselves sol- cnt? This is the historic lesl to hich our own fundamental doc- incs are now being put. And ough the terms of the whole usiness are. abstruse and diffi- ill to understand, the inner caning of the drama is clear nough, and the stakes are enor- ous. / Dear Miss Dii. When I was married two years ago, I did not love my husband, but yielded to his pleading and promising. Now I discover that all his promises were empty. I have no failh in him. He is insanely jealous and won't let me have a friend, yet he continues to see his. I have been a.good, faithful wife but am miserable over the 1 treatment I get. Should I stay.with my husband or get separate maintenance? Rosella. Answer: Is your husband entirely at fault? You married him without love, and have probably never let him forget it'. Since lie knows you don't love him, he can Catty Crosswords scarcely be blamed for tuspecling you may love someone else. You made a bad bargain, then didn't have, the gallantry to stick by it. If you can't bring love to a marriage, there is little you deserve to get from it. Under the circumstances, I can't sec where you're even entitled to separate maintenance, but since the law has its own rulings on that subject, better let it dispose of your case.
