Perhaps the best way to approach this thorny Problem Is through an old story. The story is repeated here In cer- tain quarters, where knowledge of our past follies In China does not obstruct a realistic view of the present situation. In brief, Boston's celebrated fe- male transcendentallst, Margaret Fuller, once announced, In a moment of enthusiasm, that she "accepted the universe." Miss Puller's acceptance of the Iverse was subsequently reported, to Thomas Carlyle, who remarked dourly: "Gad, she'd better." THE CHINESE COMMUNIST government is now In full posses- sion of China. Going on our bellies' to Mao Tse-tung will earn us rebuff no doubt, as It has earned the British a rebuff. But pretend- Ing that facts are not facts, and that Mao Tse-tune's government Is not ruling China from Felping, will get us nowhere at all. The obvious- ly sensible thing to do Is to open relations with this established gov- ernment, at the earliest appropri- ate moment, and without any In- dication of approval. When they do not fear to be overheard by Congress, the fore- golng is the analysis of the prob- lem of a majority of the experts. To most realistic observers, the analysis seems completely convinc- ing. And this Is true even of the observers who believe (as these correspendents strongly believe) that Secretary Acheson was talking polite nonsense when he argued, in effect that the communists were always what used to be called "the wave of the future" to China. Recent events, moreover, have Arson Charged in Blair Fire Worst Mississippi Flood Since 1937 By The Associated Preai Imperiled townsfolk sandbagged levees or fled before the rising Wabash and Ohio rivers in southern Indiana and Illinois today. Fur- ther downstream the big Mississippi, fed by all the swollen tributaries, prepared for the biggest flood fight in 13 years. The historic fortress city of Vincennes, Ind., expects a Wabash river crest of or 29 feet Friday. But Army engineers say they may save the city from, the floodwaters. They say they have the manpower and equipment to hold out the river if it doesn't go above 30 feet. Vol- unteers even bolster the-concrete floodwall with H. J. Allen, Former Kansas Senator, Dead vastly strengthened the practical arguments for opening relations with the Chinese communist gov- ernment. Behind Acheson's hints about Tito-ism in China, there Is solid Intelligence which the secre- tary did not disclose. ON THE ONE HAND, it is prob- able that Mao Tse-tung's visit to Moscow constitutes one of the great dramas in the whole history of the Communist party. The Chi- nese have a much more specific complaint against the Russians than Acheson indicated. At the close of the war.

Vincennes was putting up a stiff] fight against .the river, which was inches bleow the 19-foot floodwall. If the river should spill over, large residential sections would be af- fected first.
