EDITION VOL LVII Auoclitcd Prcu United fnm Full LCIM Copy MASON CITY IOWA MONDAY SEPTEMBER 24 1951 This Paper Consists of Two One Mans Opinion A Commentary By W EARL HALL Managing Editor Always a Mess to Clean Up AFTER every war theres a mess to becleaned up It always has been so and I venture it al ways will be so as long as man dings to this primitive way of or trying to inter national The job used to fall to the losers But in modern warfare if the ex perience of the United States after two world wars is any criterion its more a job for the victor than for the vanquished In the years ahead and in the months ahead per going to be a new manifestation of the thing to which Im referring And South Korea more be the setting lor this cleaningup operation Yes Uncle Sam will be on the business end of the broom Outlook Not Bright The gears already have started to mesh for the rehabilitation bf warravaged South Korea Last December when the skies were darkest over Korea the UN general assembly established a Ko rean reconstruction agency IVs called UNKRA and its director is an American J Donald Kingsley This agency will assume respon sibility for the relief and rehabil itation task as soon as the fight ing comes to an end As these notes are written the outlook for an early peace isnt bright But its to be remembered that when the agency was created the Chinese had just entered the war and were threatening to drive the UN forces into the seaThat was only 9 months ago When and if the fighting ends the agency UNKRA plans to spend million in its first year of operation The UN already has received pledges of more than million from 47 governments Youve guessed largest con tribution will be from Uncle Sam Tallinn if congress ap proves it Many doubtless will inquire the United jbiave to bear the brunt of the task of rebuilding Korea after contribut ing the share of men and material to save that faroff land from the communists Actually our motivation for both is the promote the cause of human freedom Marshall Speech Recalled Precedent for the Korean relief program lies ha ihe original for eign aid plan proposed by Gen George Marshall in his now his toric speech at Harvard university 5 years ago While there was a of altruism in our offer our most compelling objective was to halt communisms world march Communism thrives best on hu man misery Today despite the fact that our world has not yet managed to outlaw war human life counts for more than it did even 50 years ago Thus we have 3 good reasons for the rehabilitation pro gram in Korea Humanity char ity and in my opinion the most imper ative Of doing away with breeding grounds for communism But before considering whats contemplated in the rebuilding of Korea lets look briefly at some of il T AM41LA fcVAVc

morning prayer at Lam beth palace chapel for the wel fare of her husband Frost Threat Hangs Over Farm Crops The weatherman changed his forecast at midday Monday and the new prediction brought new hope to North Iowa farmers who have been counting the days until their corn andjsoybean crops will be matured beyond danger of s vere damage from frost Continuedcloudiness with a low of about 38 degrees was the weather expectation for Monday night in North Iowa Earlier Monday the prediction was for frost or freezing tempera tures with a lowof 30 to 35 de grees during the night Clearing skies were to accompany the drop in temperature the weather bu reau had said Not Beyond Danger Damage to North Iowa crops would have depended on how low the temperatures fell reported Marion county E Olson extension Cerro Gordo director A freeze would result in damage to a large proportion of the crop he pointed out Olson was in several cornfields Sunday studying the degree of ma turity Some of the corn is beyond frost damage In some fields about 50 per cent of the corn still is in the milk stage And there are a in which nearly all of the corn still is in the milk or dough stages he said The extension director refrained from making an esti mate of the percentage of cofn which is beyond danger of frost There is much variation in the of maturity within the same program can get under way Political Issues First agreement to a ceasefire with adequate guarantee against a resumption of hostilities would still leave a tangled skein of po litical and territorial issues to be resolved through diplomatic chan nels Second it will be necessary to provide for Koreas longterm se curity The United Nations is expected to place major emphasis on the second of these two points Sec retary Achesoh has declared that UN forces will not be withdrawn from Korea until a genuine peace has been firmly established Should the Chinese reds remain in Korea any withdrawal of UN troops would of course be ex tremely hazardous Acheson also has said that the greatest guarantee against re newed fighting alter aji armistice would be for the Chinese to with draw across the Yalu stream which forms much of the border between Korea and Man churia Such a withdrawal by the Chinese would be accompanied by a gradual or phased withdraw al of the UN troops from South Korea Ultimately the stage would be set for further negotiations on territorial claims and the big task of rebuilding the country Withdrawal of Troops If there is a ceasefire pne could expect diplomatic negoti ations to channel first toward withdrawal of foreign troops This would bring a climate ot peace to Korea Incidentally it is always easier to break off peace negoti ations when your armies arc ar rayed in line ready to fight
