Problems In Asia


eight-point philosphical joint dec dec-aration
aration dec-aration issued by President Eisen Eisenhower
hower Eisenhower and Prime Minister Anthony
Eden was aimed primarily at the
free nations of Asia.

The purpose was to draw their
attention to two basic sets of politi

cal and economic facts,

In parallel arguments it is set

forth that the policy of the western

nations is to support the nations of
Asia in independence and freedom.

while Soviet policy seeks their po

litical- and economic conquest.
The proof of this latter conten

tion is cited in the squeeze which

the Soviet rulers apply to their

own people and their satellites, in

place of the promotion' of their

treaty. .

The second Eisenhower-Eden
communique, which might be
called the Dulles-Lloyd statement,

gets down to the brass Hacks of
differences between the American
and British approach to specific
problems in Asia. j
That part of the statement which
relates to Europe merely reaffirms
adherence to North Atlantic Treaty

Organization and reunification of
Germany. This is not new.
The general assumption is that

remain unsettled and subject to
further negotiations, which will

begin soon in Washington.

As regards Israel, France will

be invited to join these talks. They
will study means to implement the
Tripartite Declaration of May, 1950,1

guaranteeing borders. But the

means of enforcing these guaran guarantees
tees guarantees have yet to be decided.

bpecmc actions to oe considered

include economic blockades and
sanctions in or out of the United
Nations and the possible use of
U.S. and British forces in the area
to preserve order.

might be placed along the armis.

The suggestion to strengthen the
U.N. truce observation teams, now
numbering fewer than 100 men,
involves only a limited increase.

the other principal moot point in

the Eisenhower-Eden communique
concerns future trade with Com Communist

no final decisions. Everything is
left to negotiation by economic ex experts..

Tne British are unoer pressure

to lift some restrictions on the
China trade. This applies particu particularly
larly particularly to rubber which Ceylon and

Malaya would like to self wherever

they can.-

There are two embargo lists,
compiled by international coordi

nating committees. The original
list bans sale of strategic materi'

als to Soviet Russia. The China

list, much more extensive, applied

to Red China trade.
! American position is that in

creasing this trade even by some

millions of dollars is not tne lm

Dortant consideration. The basic

question is what is best for pro promoting
moting promoting the welfare and defense of
the free Asian countries and for

preventing further Chinese Com
munist aggression in the area?

The United States has now

agreed only to continued review of
the two embargo lists to see if

any items could be traded for the
benefit of the free countries.
What may come out of these
reviews, no one can say now.'
There was no change in British

support for the coming year at
least of the U.S. opposition to ad admission
mission admission of Communist China into

the United Nations.

dence about the manner in which

American oil comnanv rnvaltip

are being used in Saudi Arabia to

stir up trouble against Engtond
and the United States. He nrhhsh-

ly asked Eisenhower to clamp
down on the Arabian Ameirican
Oil Company and the manner in

wnicn it has been subsidizing King
Saud. :
Here are some of the facts which

British intelligence has dug up in
the Near East and which Eden

is lekely to have laid in Ike s lap:

1. It was American rovaltv mon-1

ey which actually paid for part of
the Red arms which Egypt got
from Czechoslovakia. Part of this
deal was a barter for Egyptian
cotton, but part also was paid for

py money which the Egyptians

borrowed from Saudi Arabia.

2. King Saud has offered $280,-

000,000 to the government of Jor

dan during the next 10 years if it
will stay out of the Baghdad alli alliance
ance alliance which England organized to
combat the march of Russian com

munism. Saud is getting this mon

ey from Aramco.

Eden also has some amazing in

tercepted messages showing how
the Saudi Arabians have been
trying to stir up unrest and using
American oil royalties to do it;

also an intercepted message re regarding
garding regarding the delivery of a 25-year-old

Presidenl To Weigh
Touchy hlm Gas
Bill Before Signing
President Eisenhower said late
yesterday he has not yet decided
whether to M"n the controversial
natural gas bill. ;
He told his news conference he
had to weigh the desirability of
preserving states rights against
the need to protest "captive" gas
consumers against unreasonable
price hikes. The bill, which would
exempt independent natural gas
producers from direct federal
pnee regulation, was passed by
the Senate Monday after a three
weeK party-splitting debate. ,
The debate, which was marked
by some of the sharpest language
in recent Senate history, was cli
maxed by Sen. Francis Case's dis disclosure
closure disclosure that an attorney interest interested
ed interested in passage of the bill offered
him a $2,500 "campaing contribu
tion." ',.rv:.."- ..- :..
While not specifically mention
ing the Case incident, Mr. Eisen
hower agreed with congressional
investigators who demand a broad
investigation of campaign contri
butions by corporations and organ
He said he believes such con
tributions require "very earnest
study." He said the big question
on political contributions is this:
"Is it absolutely disinterested
money or is someone trying to get
something for it. I think it is a
field that we can never let up on."
The Senate has created a spe
cial four-man committee- headed
bv Sen. Walter F. George (D-Ga.)
to determine whether the offer
was an attemnt to sway Case's
vote. George said he expects that
the committee will maxe its re-
oort to the Senate next week.
Chairman Thomas C. Hennmgs
Jr. told a news conference that
his Elections subcommittee win
not conduct a rival investigation

group sealed the South Dakota

Some workers ask the following
questions: "How does it differ
from the Caribbean Wage Scale?
Why do both Local CIO Unions
condemn this waee nhilnsnnhv cn

vehemently? How will its exist existence

kers workers and their families?".
This article is intended to ans answer

hopes and aspirations of this sub substantial
stantial substantial army of workers have
come crashing to earth, adding
significantly to their lonz list ol

woes ana xears. .:
The locality wage scale, as an announced
nounced announced and defended duririg the
recent hearings on the Treaty in
the United States Senate; dictates
.L. I v : .i r

This mtena that, at ''Panama ''Panamanian

the area for more jobs becomes
Panama; and for Tons time
tho trend has been te put mora

jobs, to the wage rato that prey-,

r and not tho wag rate that
prevails far away in the United
Stores." (This Is a diroct o,uot.
tion-from the hearings.)
-. T& make mutters worse, it has
been, repeatedly stated that this
position has been endorsed in cer certain
tain certain high and influential quarters
in ,the Republic of Panama; and
up to the present time, no one has
openly denied this serious and da damaging

In fact, in the recent Congres Congressional

in nDecember, and in the presence
representatives of the press,
labor representatives Vere asked
by a Congressman now they would
answer the following stated posi position;

ef Panama have expressed the

views to me that they are not in
favor of paying U.S. rate wages

would tend to create a privileged

How would you answer this? Of
course,, we hastened to explain the
fallacy and inconsistency of this
selfish point of view, and among
other things, to point up the fact
that the existence of such a prac practice
tice practice would undoubtedly have a
most salutary effect in helping to
raise standards of wages now ex existent

all workers of the country.
The locality wage philosophy,
therefore, looms as an "even more

Now for the first, time,, we have

Despite his advanced age and

factor that drained much of life

years. :

WINS, THIRD COLD MEDAL Toni Sailer, 20, of Austria
swoops downhill to complete the greatest ski performance in
Olympic history by winning his third gold medal of the 1Sd8
Winter Games at Cortina, Italy. Several of the star downhill
ski racers in the event were sent flying off the beaten track
by huge bumps and a 40-mile-an-hour wind.


The attitude of big league ballplayers In respect to monies
iccurlng from World Series TV and radio broadcasts Is admi admirably
rably admirably consistent with the contemporary American philosophy.
They merely want as much as they can get, preferably all.
They have a signed agreement with the club. owners by
which they receive 60 percent for the pension fund. But after
giving it more thought It appears they are unhappy about it.
whv not one that. trive them the entire 100 uercent?

Irrespective of the equities involved and it's ciear enough
that they all are not on one side what makes the players be believe
lieve believe the club owners won't fight' for the validity of a signed
agreement, particularly an advantageous one?
The odus would seem to be heavily stacked against the
players winning this one. It should be noted, however, that
they are being coached from the sidelines by J. fcoiman 4.l.s,
a specialist in baseball law. It could be that he has more on
the ball than it is possible to see from the stands.
This is a matter that casta a long shadow over the base?
ball paladins as they gather here for the winter convention
rituals. A great deal of money is at stake. In such circum circumstances
stances circumstances the club owners usually prove to be very good glove
men. Few dollars slip through their fingers.
. . .
A new contract for World Series broadcasting is in the
process, of negotiation, Some estimates, put the vaiue. as high
as $6 million. (The one just expired brought $1 million.) A
gentleman in the business, tells this department baseball will
be lucky to get $3. million.!
"And that would be just a- starter as far as the sponsor is
concerned. The World Series pre-empts every station on the
channel and that means a tremendous outlay for line charges.
A sponsor paying $2 million for the broadcasting rights, might
weil wind up with an over-all cost of $5 million or more.".,
.The players' immediate objective is to fatten the pension
payoff, currently pegged at $100 monthly, beginning at the age
of 50. They wan,t .to get it up to $100 weekly as soon as, they
"tan. .V:. "r''r:" :"-..;'."' '.
Perhaps in their seal to achieve a program that will insure
an old ballplayer at least a decent existence, the moderns are
spurred by the sickening memories of Fete Alexander, Hack
Wilson, Bill Cissell and other one-time diamond heroes who
landed on Skid Row.
Thejhave every right "to say; "We've got to take care of
ourselves. We certainly can't count on baseball doing it."
At the same time, they should remember and if they don't,
they should be reminded that the pension fund got its orig orig-lnal
lnal orig-lnal impetus from the All-Star game. Up to then, the receipts
had gone to the" Professional Baseball'Players' Assn., which was,
arid still is, the only place the destitute oldrtimer can turn.
If the pension fund has reached a point where the primary
concern is whether the young men rate 60 or 100 percent of
a $3 million to $8 million TV deal, then possibly they can get
along without the All-star game money even if It means using
last year's cadillac.
Only big leaguers are eligible to participate in the pension
fund. This is all the more reason baseball should support the
JBPA without stint. The PBPA recognizes that an old-time
busher can get Just as sick and Just as hungry as an old-time
big leaguer. . .
Baseball makes a yearly contribution of $50,000 to help off offset
set offset loss of the All-Star game receipts. It does, but only up to
a point. A year ago the PBPA distributed $80,000 and still
wasn't able to do half enough.
What PBPA needs Is a regular Income. Baseball should see
that the All-star game is restored for this purpose at once. No
one begrudges today's big leaguer his unique windfall. But that
a fortuitous period in the time should make him more deserv deserving
ing deserving of social Insurance than others who preceded him. is a
premise no one will accept, either.

The opening game of the
cricket season on the Atlantic
side, featuring the defending
champions, Surrey CC, and the

played as scheduled last Sunday
on the Rainbow City sward.

subject of "True Sportsman-:

to H. Newton, another league
official who swung lustily but

Not much can be written of
the game itself, which was a
disappointment from the stand-1
point of the cricket-starved fans,'
most of whom came prepared to
witness a keen contest. 1
The Mills Eleven, batting first,!

snappy brand of fielding which
yielded 3 run-outs, held them to
