'Battle For Moon Joined
As Chemists Eyes Go Pop
LONDON. Sept. 5 (UP) The
Battle for the Moon opened here
Scientists from ll western na-
tions, including some of the
world's leading military rocket
designers, assembled last night
to. form an international lnter-
Slanetary rocket society and pool
[formation that delegates be-
lieve may prevent the Russians
,from "capturing" the Moon.
Arthur C. Clarke, chairman of
the British Interplanetary Socie-
ty, said western scientists know
the Russians are concentrating
n the development of space
rockets and may easily be furT
ther advanced than the West.
He said the Russians, working
with the help of captured Ger-
man scientists, may be the first
to land a space ship on the Moon
or launch a "space station" to
float above the earth's atmos-
phere, giving the Soviets tremen-
dous strategic advantages.
Some of the Germans held by
the Soviets are known to have
knowledge of Hitler's designs for
Just such a space platform.
The United States has admit-
ted working along the same lines.
Delegates will Inaugurate the
International Astr o n o m i c a 1
Foundation dedicated to the In-
terchange of information on the
possibility of launching space
travel "In our time."
Attending the conference are
delegates from the U. S., Britain.
Argentina, Germany, France, It-
aly, Spain. Denmark, Norway
Austria and Sweden
Among them are some of the
Germans who designed the
dreaded V-2 rockets which blast-
ed Britain in the latter days of
World War II.

One question seems to plague
more of my readers than any
other. "What should I do," hun-
dred* of them have aaked me,
"when new and strange rules
are sprung on me right in the
middle of the game?"
That's easy. Just be your nat-
ural courteous self. If you're at
a friend's house, and your friend
wants you to play billiards with
a baseball bat instead of a cue,
you humor him. Do the same
thing if he wants to play Canas-
ta in some peculiar way.
In your Own home, you should
\ announce at the beginning of the
same that you are following
such-and-such rules. Naturally.
I suggest you follow the offlciar
rules; and I recommend that you
haul out a rule book and put lt
where lt can be consulted In case
of a difference of opinion.
However, if you want to follow
ome different rulesgo ahead
-nd do so. Thla is a free coun-
ry, and the Constitution gives
every citizen the right to make
up his own Canasta rules. You
owe It to your guests, however,
to mention your new rules before
the game begins.
C>We were playing Canasta
'nd the score became so hceles
that we conceded the game to!
our oDponents. They wanted us
to finish the hand out because
they wanted to see how hl"h a
score they could roll up. When
we refused, they became quite
annoyed. Who was right?
AThis is another question for
n specialist on etiquette rather
than a games expert. When a
stake is involved you naturally
have to finish a game in order
to find ont what the score Is.
Likewise In a tournament you
would have to finish the game.
In a sociable game with no stake,
however, it should be possible to
concede a game without having
to finish it out.
When the opponents feel a dif-
ferent way about it. the question
becomes one of politeness: Which
side should yield?
There might be many different
reasons for foUowing the wishes
of your opponents in a matter of
this sort. They might be older, or
very distinguished, or perhaps
one of them is your husband's
boss. All good reasons, no doubt,
but none of them have anything
i to do with th* rales of card
As far as the card ruling is
concerned, I would give a cons-
titutional ruling. It is "cruel and
unusual punishment" to make
players finish out a hopeless
?ameso I would rule that It is
innecessary for them to do so.

Scientists Unfurl Discovery:

Truman Can Slap Taff-Hartley
Injunction On Copper Strike
NEW YORK, Sept. 5 (UP) The structure of several
proteins fias been determined, two scientists reported to-
day. The development may mean that science will be
able to produce synthetic bone, muscle, red blood cells,
heir ond wool.
The significant scientific achievement was reported
by professors Linus Pauling, chairman of the division of
chemistry and chemical engineering, California Institute
of Technology, and Robert t. Corey, professor of chemistry
at Cal Tech.
They told the diamond jubilee of the American Che-
mical Society that atoms which make up hair, wool, muscle,
finger nails and several other fibrous proteins are arranged
in the form of a spiral, or helix.
The protein molecules, according to the scientists,
are similar to springs.
Furthermore, the scientists by
using laboratory techniques, have
determined the diameter o the
prlng-shaped molecules with an
accuracy of a billionth of an Inch.
The measurement was done by
X-ray diffraction data and mole-
Verifications of the structure
are now appearing In progress In
Cal Tech laboratories and from
Dr. M. F. Perutz of the Cavendish
laboratory, Cambridge, England.
Scientists for many years have
been attempting to determine
;he structure of proteins, which
\re known as the building blocks
of the human body. They are
considered among the most Im-
portant of all substances found
in plants and animals.
While the research at Cal Tech
was an adventure Into pure sci-
ence, the end result may haye far
reaching significance In medical
One of the proteins whose
structure has been determined Is
collagen, which makes up tend-
ons and also Is present in skin
Thus, arthritis and other dis-
eases that are being treated with
cortisone and ACTH are some-
times referred to as collagen dis-
ACTH is now obtained from the
pituitary glands of swine, and
scientists believe that it might
never be synthesized because It
may be protein material.
However, the work of the Cal
Tech scientists may bring the
synthesis of ACTH years sooner.
The next goal of the scientists
will be to make artificially pro-

Costs Disclosed By MilUr
WASHINGTON, Sept. 5 (USISt
The ''realties* of the sacrifices
me.de by the United States dur-
ing and since World War Two. to
which U.S. Assistant Secretary
of 8tat<> Edward G. Miller. Jr.J
referred during his Panama City
address are made more explicit
in a memorandum recently com-
piled by the U.S. Library of
Congress. At the special meeting
of the Inter-American Economic
and Social Council on Panama
this week. Miller mentioned the
war-imposed strains on the U.8.
economy in connection with the
question of assuring the future
purchasing power of Latin Ame-
rica's monetary reserves.
Miller said the realities of the
situation include the fact that
the United States came out of
World War Two with a national
debt of more than 250,000 million
dollars, and with large continu-
ing financial responsibil i t i e a
caused by the war and the cur-
rent emergency is requiring very
considerable financial and econ-
omic sacrifices on the part of the
American people, as well as the
sacrifices of life."
The Library of Congress state-
ment of the cost of World War
Two, which was prepared for an
address to the Senate last week
by Senator Brlen McMahon,
makes these points: The overall
money cost to the United States
of World War Two will eventusl-
) be $1 '00,000,000.000. ($1.4 tril-
lion) or 13 times the cost of
jAu War One.

The women who make no

MATTER OF FACT
By Joseph and Stewart Alsop
THE CLANGOROUS ABYSS
WASHINGTON.Anxiety about the future In Korea is bring-
ing on a bad attack of nerves In the government
Aa recently reported in this space, the American policy mak-
ers have little hope of a Korean ceasefire until after the Ban
Francisco conference on the Japanese peace treaty.
But the question now being asked Is whether, even after San
Francisco, a ceasefire can be arranged.
We shall not buv a Korean truce by abandoning the project
for a Japanese treaty. We shall not yield to the new Soviet
Will the masters of the Kremlin then order the ceasefire
talks to be renewed in earnest, or will they order a renewal of
The most careful Inquiries reveal a wide but depressing, range
of official and expert opinion on this crucial point. (
To begin at the dark end of the spectrum. Gen. Mat-
thew B. Rldgway has lately sent the opinion from Tokyo
that the whole ceasefire project was probably a blind
from the start, and that we must now be prepared for
an eventual full scale renewal of the Korean flfhting.
A middle group here merely states that the odds against a
final ceasefire aer heavy, and are Increasing.
And the comparative optimists call It "still an even bet.
Since this Is the present range of official and expert opinion.
It Is certalnlv time to think about what will happen if the tragi-
comedy of Kaesong suddenly merges Into a new Communist of-
fensive which may. Indeed, happen tomorrow.
On the one hand, the long lull of the ceasefire talks has
benefitted the enemy far more than most people realize.
Quantities of new heavy equipment, including considerable
artillery And about 600 tanks, have been brought into the war
zone. > ..
The depleted Chinese and North Korean units have been
filled up. so that the enemv is now estimated to have about
500,000 men in Korea, with 400,000 In striking positions between
the 39th parallel and the front.
The buildup of air strength, which' had reached 1,000 planes
In Manchuria two months ago. has continued slowly.
Above all, every kind of supply dump has been piled up.
Therefore. Instead of being able to sustain an attack for only
a' few days, the Chinese and North K-oreana are now considered
able to continue on the offensive for a much longer period.
It is even calculated that every aided day of lull, in
which the enemy's supply dumps are not depleted by
heavy fighting, adds another day to the period daring
which an offensive effort can be maintained in the fa-
Thus the enemy in Korea is much stronger now. than he was.
<':i the other hand, so are we.
-ur forces, dug in at Chorwon and Kumwha, occupy Incom-
parably the best defensive position they have ever held in Korea.
They have had time to strengthen their hold on the Iron
Triangle by every device of the military art, so that they can be
sure of taking a fearful toll of the attacking enemy.
Por the first time, they have their full complement of wea-
pons and equipment of all kinds.
And for the Urst time, the aevlslons and regiments are more
than up to strength, with substantial reserves of manpower.
Balancing the enemy's gains of strength against our gains,
the authorities here now share the* same sober confidence In our
forces' power to hurl back a Communist offensive that has al-
ready been expressed by Oen. Rldgway and Gen. Van Fleet.
There Is only one point of Immediate concern.
Since the I'. N. armies in Korea have had no real
., aaaaaning experience with hostile air, sever* temporary
etbacki mav ensue If the enemy brings his fall air
strength uta the battle.
This single point of immediate concern in > turn symbolizes
the very deep and anxious concern that is universally fait about
the long range results of a serious renewal of the Korean fight-
For if the enemy air enters the battle, the question of re-
taliatory air attacks on the enemy bases In Manchuria, will be
inescapably raised at once.
And even if tfte ngmlng follows the old pattern, the let-
down and deception of the false ceasefire negotiation will still
give rise to the strongest pressures to widen the war.
In short, if it begins again all-out, the Korean war
can hardly go on forever as a limited war. It mast
someday burst It* precarious bounds, and become a much
larger and more terrible conflagration.
These grim truths are of course the best arguments for op-
timism about an eventual ceasefire agreement. If the enemy
both understands these truths and does not want a wider War.
he too must desire a final ceasefire in Korea.
But these same truths also indicate the peril of the present
We are travelling a narrow ledge, skirting a clangorous
abyss, and we had better realice that this is our situation, In
order to avoid mis-steps.

I suppose the Commissary has broad shoulders and can take

cret reports that a two or three-
week strike would actually pre-
vent us from protecting our-
selves In the event a world war
suddenly broke outwas forced
to walk over, shake hands and
fraternize with a strike lead-
er who three times has been
accused of membership In the
underground Communist "mo-
ther" cell from which the party
infiltrated key government
agencies in the past 20 years.
That Incident, more than
anything else this past hectic
week, reflected the utter welrd-
ness of our national efforts' to
Somewhere missing was a
realistic policy for handling pro-
Communist unions which have
th?lr base in the most strategic
And because the govern-
ment chose'to bargain with,
instead of cracking down
immediately on, this left-
wing Mine, Mill and Smelter
Workers Union, I can re-
port that the sentiment
here, among the non-poli-
ticaliud union chiefs, is to
use similarly tough tactics
with the government when-
ever they want anything.
In the words of one national
labor chief, who Is here for an
an' unusually closely guarded
CIO Vice President session:
"We^ get a run aTound for
a month for being reasonable.
The pro-Commie crowd actually
begins preventing us from mak-
ing certain weapons, even after
a four-day copper strike, and
the government's dealing with
them fast. What do we have to
be, charter Communists?"
The strike bralntruster. whose
hand the Dept. of Defense offi-
cial shook, la a mustached. crew
cut. lean fellow, who. in Soviet
tunic, would look like Holly-
wood's version of a'commissar.
He is Nat Witt, a fanatical,
brilliant pro-Sovieteer, whose
intimate friend, Lee Pressman,
placed him in the Communist
Party cell.(during testimony be-
fore the house un-American Ac-
This one man. Nat Witt, na-
tional attorney for the copper
strikers, is. according to an ex-
colleague of his' (an ex-Com-
munlst Party member who
worked with him in CIO), a
.former New York- cab driver
who became the pro-Commies'
most competent strategist.
"Witt is one of the real powers
in that circle. He's the man who
did the proselytyzing of such
powerful men as Lee Pressman,"
I was told here this week by
the ex-Communlst from Inside
"Now he's here, as general
counsel of the Mine, Mill and
Smelter Union, and the govern-
ment deals, with him. Small
wonder the COmmles have con-
tempt for us."
And this man Witt, who, to
my personal knowledge, profan-
ed this land of ours and its
way of Ufe in the restaurant of
Atlantic City s Hotel Chelaa dur-
ing the ISM CIO Convention,
actually placed President Tru-
man in this position:
According: to high sour-
ces in the Defense Dept., the
President was faced with
either watching all wdr pro-
duction and most civilian
production grind to a stop
in less than two weeks
or so deplete our highly se-
cret copper stockpile that
we would actually not be
able to swing into all our
weapons' production- for
months even if war was de-
clared by the Soviets.
How does this happen? Here

cobalt which depends on the
sulphuric acid that duns off In

Is In desparately short supply.
Yet we need it to "pickle"
(temper) wartime steel. We need
that acid to harden cobalt.
We need cobalt for electronic
equipment, radar and radio,
and we need It In alloys for
heat resisting metals which
means jet engines.
We heed the acid to make
aviation gasoline the produc-

When the strike began, there
was only a few days supply of
sulphuric acid. The President:
was told that a week's copper
strike would actually mean cut-]
backs In our shipment of arms.
We need 50 pounds of copper
in an ordinary car or jeep, and
400 pounds In a big convoy
Yet, here In Washington, we're
forced to watch this union be-
hind the scenes for Its real ob-
jective - absolute control of the
copper Industry through nation-
wide bargaining. This means
that only the Mine. Mill and
Smelter Workers would talk for

Nothing On The Bawl

NEW YORK. It Is very" possible that Harry
Truman's fabulous "bluntness," which is more,
often jst plain rudeness, will earn him some
fresh friends as a result of his lU-mannered re-
ception of the Czech ambassador, Vladimir Pro-
"Old Harrv sure got him-told," they'll say.
"Good old Harry. When he bawls 'em out they
I am not very impressed with a President who
hits an occasional gutter-level of bad taste to
wrangle personally with Inferiors.
If we are officially angry with the Czechs for
their treatment of the jailed newspaperman.
Bill Oatls, and we have been ignored In our
formal diplomatic demands for his release, then
there are all sort* of nice little official penalties
we can Impose.
We can sever diplomatic relations entirely,
which would grieve iiobotfv hereiverv hard, and
I daresav that the Czechs wouldn't start a war
with us until Mother Russia says so.
Or we could just sort of break off all trade
relations, which would hurt the laving Czechs
painfully in the pocket. This almost any na-
tion, even a slave satellite, understands!
But we solve Uttle when Intemperate Harry
decides to clean out the barroom with a mouth-
ful of abusa that more befits a mule skinner
than the head of a state.
It certainly scares nobody, and lowers the
stature of Harry's office, which is a high office.
Harry's bawlings-out. are never consistent'
enough to be effective.
He has not bawled out a great many of the
cute cronies who do peculiar business with gov-
ernment funds, and the last time I looked he
had not bawled Bill O'Dwyer ^oose from the job
of Ambassador to Mexico.
It seems to me we ought to formulate some
dignified and effective way for dealing with the
people who stomp our toes- that is. If we are
so conscious of other people's rights that we
mount a full-scale war to avenge the downtrod

geler and we have to bribe him out of the jail-

Either the guy Is working for our spy shop
and takes his medicine like a man. or he Is not
working for the Intelligence boys and hence de-
serves all protection ahort of war.
If he Is an agent, he Is spying on purpose
and must be sacrificed because he know* the
terms of his job In calculated risk.
But If he is just an innocent victim of total-
itarian pressure, bribery and ransom doesn't
work for very long, and ranting at a paid di-
plomat won't solve it.
When you have sent terse demands to a na-
tion, and they are ignored, calling Its striped-
pants salesman a bum Is of very little effect.
The bum has been called a bum before, and by
his masters. '

your nationals and kidnapping your consuls.

WASHINGTON(NEA)Making it tougher
for racketeers to engage in Illegitimate business
Is a primary aim of the revised legal code which
the Senate Crime Committee Is proposing to
Being practical, court room lawyers, Senators
Kefauver. O'Conor and their associates realize
that as dope peddling and bootlegging are made
more difficult, the crook* will start looking for
ways to beat the rap.
Criminals have good lawyers, too. So as one
highwav of illegal trade is closed, criminal law-
yers will advise their client* of legal alleys
where they can operate with safety.
The trucking Industry, for Instance. Is begin-
ning to attract the musclers-ln.
Looking ahead, the lawmakers are trying to
put legal roadblock* on as many of these cri-
minal byways as they can.
Senate crime Investigators found evidence of
a few cases of racketeering already In the
Joe Adonis and his pals were found to be In-
terested In concerns with contracts for hauling
new ears from Detroit and Edgewater. N. J..
plants. Intimidation of competitors by black-
jacks ha* been Involved.
To meet this threat, the Senate Crime Com-
mittee advocates revision of national transpor-
tation policy law.
Under present law. there Is no provision for
revocation of an Interstate Commerce Commis-
sion licence. The onlv standards are public
convenience and necessity.
It is now proposed to add a requirement of
good moral character for all licensees.
Exposure of the horrible conditions in the sale
of drugs to minors resulted In introduction of
37 anti-narcotics bills in' the House.
Senate Crime Committee has picked one of
these bills which ha* already passed the House,
and wUl push it for passage by the Senate.
This bill would Increase sentences for convict-
ed dope peddlers. First offense would get two
to five years, second offense five to ten years,
subsequent convictions ten to 20 years. '
For sales to minora, the penalty would be 20
years to Ufe Imprisonment.
But judges and lawyers who oppose statutory
minimum sentence* are fighting these measures.
A small but Important change Is proposed for
the Federal appeals act It would grant Federal
prosecutors the right, now denied, to appeal
court orders for suppression of evidence.
Getting suppression of evidence orders is com-
mon practice In defending narcotics charges.
Tightening of liquor sale and transportation
laws Is strongly recommended by the Crime
Under present law, every wholesaler and ma-
nufacturer must get a Federal permit. But once
granted, permits run Indefinitely.
The new Idea Is to grant permits for two
vears only. Renewals would be denied law vio-
One bill that may raise a storm of protest
would provide penalties for violation of the
Webb-Kenyon act of 1913. This law makes it a
crime to ship Uquor Into any state which bails
its importation from outside the state.
Today Kansas and Oklahoma have such laws,
but since 1036 there have been no penalties for
A still more stringent liquor traffic reform In-
troduced In the House would make It a crime
to transport liquor Into any area that has been
voted dry under local option laws.
Amendment* to the Immigration laws are also
recommended by the Crime Committee. At the
present time, there are no enforclble penalties
for conceaUng or smuggling aliens into the
U. 8. One new bill would close these loopholes.
Change In the perjury law to facilitate convic-
tion in criminal cases is an important recom-
mendation of the Crime Committee.
Today, If a witness makes two contradictory
statements, the government must prove which
statement is false.
This would now be amended so as to make
contradictory statements In themselves perjury,
without th* necessity of proof on which is right.
Another technical change proposed would
make it possible for Congressional sergeanu-at-
arms to enlist the aid of any law enforcement
officer in serving Congressional subpoenas.
This reform Is out forward aa a result of the
Crime Committee's own difficulty in apprehend-
ing some 14 witnesses.
As soon as the Senate passed a special reso-
lution, authorizing the FBI to assist, the 14
FlnaUy. creation of a permanent Federal
Crime Commission Is proposed.

MillarrJ Coldwell says: Cracker-box strategists fumble
Civil Defense; America must face a new concept* of
war; We have no time for fantasy.
i While Drew Pearson is on a brief vacation, the Wash-
ington Merry iu Round i% being written by several distin-
guished guest columnist*, today's being by Millard ( aldwell,
Federal Civil Defense Administrator.)
WASHINGTONWhile time is running out, the cracker-boa
strategist* fumble Civil Defense.
Some of them know that air power at its best can stop
only 30 out of 100 attacking enemy bombers. Yet they insist that
more air power is the sole answer to protecting the home front.
Others blow hot and cold.
One day they think the situation is so hopeless that ClvU
Defense could do no good.
The next day, the world situation looks brighter, so Civil
Defense is not needed.
Still others insist that retaliation Is the answer. What we
can do to the enemv blinds them to what the enemy can do
They forget the trigger for our retaliation will be a mass
atomic attack on our own cities.
Then, another group, the ostrich thinkers. Insist that no
nation would dare attack this country, because nobody ever has,
and besides we're too strong.
Some, bored with crisis after crisis, wake up now and
then, say "It can't happen here," and doze off again.
The timid pin their hope on Russian backwardness and
say "That atomic explosion In Russia wasn't really the bomb."
WhUe the pseudo-strategists grope In a smog of truth;
half-truth and fantasy, time Is running out. We stand In
danger of war.
Too many seem unable to grasp the fact that we can lose
Their stock answers are: "If It takes production, we'll out-
produce the enemy. If it takes atomic bombs, we'll build bigger
and better atomic bombs. If they hit us. we'll hit 'em harder.
These prevalent American belief are ingrained, basic but,
unfortunately, stop short of an adequate answer to the sharp
question sired bv reality.
They were incomplete bv three thingsRed imperialism, the
global bomber and the atomic bomb.
This trio has forced on Americans a whole new concept qf
Today or any day. America itself can become a battleground.
Civilians are the first targets in this new kind of war.
If the enemy first smashes the home front, the mlUtary may
have little left to fight for and less to fight with.
The Kremlin knows that our American home front must
be knocked out quickly, if it is to be knocked out at all.
For this reason, the first attack must be a grand slam using
all the modern terror weapons.
Those who doubt the likelihood of war on the home front
should heed what Representative Clarence Cannon. Chairman of
the House Appropriations Committee, had to say on the floor
April 9. He said:
"If war comeswhich God forbidIt will be fought in this
country as well as abroad."
'General Vanderberg (speaking for the Air Force) said: "In
spite of aH our radar fences, our walls of shipping, our net-
works of communication and our clouds of interceptor planes,
70 per cent of the enemv planes carrying atomic bombs would
get through. We might as well face that fact.
"very center of production, every center of wealth and po-
pulation and civilization would be devastated.
"We have only to look at the cities In Germany to see how
the cities of America would look within one week after war
W. Stuart Symington, while chairman of NSRB. said: "Who
can be a bigger fool than the fool who continues to fool him-
self, especially when his own existence Is at stake."
Those who will read the record must see where the 30 year
pattern of Russian imperialism leads.
The retallatlonlsts have, an empty answer. To devastate Rus-
sian cities would not restore our own.
Unrealistic thinking has sapped our strength and robbed u*
of precious time.
No American city Is prepared to cope with an enemy attack.
We must use our time wisely and well. There is no time for
fatalism or fantaay.

notions. Mize got ln only 13 games but his six hits for 10 bases
helped and In the World Series it was Mize's two-out single with

to a Yankee come-from-behind victory. That hit alone made

I note now that Hank Greenberg, who G.M.'s the Cleveland

And couldn't the Red Sox have used Sain? You would have
to think so. But here again the spirit of brotherly love may have
been functioning. Certainly Tom Yawkey would go as high as

.NEW YORK, Sept. 5 (UP)
Middleweight Champion Randy
Turpin won't admit as much. But
observers at the British champ's
training camp in upstate New
York say that he's settled on a
definite battle plan for his Sept
12 meeting with Sugar Ray Rob-

The word is that the 23-year-
old Turpin will concentrate all
his fire power on the Harlem
challenger's slender waistline.
The overall strategy, according
to ring experts who've watched
Turpin workodt. is to tire Rob-
inson with body punching, then
shift to the head for a knockout
