Fresh, New Thinking
Although some of jOnemf^ftwenhow
top cabinet command is yet to be ,
chosen, the two most important posts have
now been filled and it is fair fo discuss the
taliber of the General’s appointments.
John Foster Dulles as Secretary of
State was no surprise to anyone, since his
name ahd Governor DeWbv’s had all along
been prominently mentioned.
DdHes ia 4 proven specialist in inter- •
national affairs. He has served ably hi
the^United Nations. ,baa been on and off a
Republican consultant to the State De-
partmept. and is thoroughly familiar with
its internal workings and its problems.
His crowning glory was the fashion-
ing of the Japanese peace treaty. That
pact, was unique !n two major respects.
It was the first treaty in modern world
history that was not vindictive, that did
not aim primarily to penai^.^b&.-.W-e.
. quished nation. The great- goal wka
and is—to draw Japan into the.family of
free nations and build within its islands
a healthy democracy.
Secondly, the pact was shrewdly put
together by a careful series of eoqntry-
by-country negotiations which considered
and disposed of, one by one, all the prin-
cipal stumbling blocks to a final success-
: ful result. This diplomatic technique had
never before been tried*'on such a scale,
Pnd ii contributed mightily to the smooth
course of the treaty discussions.
No one seems to have anticipated the
specific Choice of Charles E .Wilson, presi-
dent of General Motors, as Secretary of
Defense, But the selection of a business-
man should have occasioned no eyebrow-
raising. ; —
Eisenhower emphasized during his
campaign an intent to put the defen.se es-
tablishment on the strictest business basis.
Defense now takes upwards of two-thirds
of the total G. S. budget. ft. any great sav-~
ings are to be made either to spending or
taxes, sizable sums, must be-v shorn from
the Pentagon’s annual outlays.
Wilson'is extremely well equipped for
this hard task. For many years he has
captained Ane of the biggest and most
far-flung industrial enterprises in the
world. ■ He knows arms production from
the producing-end, and it is here any sav-
ings must be made. He is an operating
specialist, not a mere corporation figure-
head. His reputation and position were
built on performance!
f the quality of tne appointments ♦*»

tionsjfor State and Defense, then the C-en-
The increase is due to the raising of standard* by
the colleges themselves and"” to increjgued activity
by the accrediting agency in rtrljgnizing colleges
that ':S’We already un to requirements.
lb 11*29 the six regional accrediting agencies
were linkea in an overall organization that fixes
standards of educatio.n. Among the things this
organization looks for are the n* rubers of volumes
in the college library, the work load of (the stu-
dents, salary and preparation of teachers and gen-
eral educational standards.
All major colleges haw- ate accredited. They
rarely accept transfer students or graduate *t«--
dent frqm inatitution* that are not accredited.
Mary Irwin, editor of the council, who compil-
ed the new directory, believes that the accredit-
ing aetivity has brought about greater interest in
higher learning and/ of course, better educated
She said it ia conceivable that the high stand-
ards may go even higher. This hill necessitate
more detailed investigation at the colleges and will
further expand the council’s work. The council
may have to lease a special building just to house
it’8 directory operation. The volume just issued
runs 1,125 pages, and the print is pretty small; I
Back in 1828 the directory ran 48.4 pgesrBuT
that doesn’t, mean a thing, Miss Irwin pointed out.
“The pages were so small and the type was so
much bigger." ( *

TjriASHINGTON—(NEA)—The recent series of C-119 "Flying Box-
■ car” crashes climaxes a long sene's of troubles the Air Force has
had wtjh. the plane In Korea.
The full story hasn't come out in the U. S. until now, mostly be-
cause of security restrictions slapped on the subject inrthe Far East
each time a new episode took place.
Air Force headaches with the C-119 reached a1 climax in Korea
last February when the planes were all grounded following a series
!'of accidents very similar to those which have just taken place. There
were several crashes which couldn't be explained. The ones they
could explain resulted from .propeller trouble. . ^ <
Even before the official grounding action had been taken, an emer-
gency mass parachute maneuver had to be staged in Japan, using old
World War, II C-47s to get tcoops and crews familiar with those planes
again in anticipation of What was coming. The exercise was only
partially successful.- ' ,
T ONG before that there was even more than the pressure of technical
i J difficulties with the C-119 building up on . the Air Force. The
aircraft had gotten such a bad reputation among the G.I.’s^hut some
of them were refusing to By in it.. Much of such an attitude among
men is always based in part on unfounded rumor. Nevertheless, the
result was getting serious. .
On several occasions in Korea last winter this reporter saw the
men s fear of flying in the plane expressed. The operations offices of
all Korean airfields are jammed with soldiers hitch-hiking some-
where. Many are dirty, tired G.l.’s just out of bunkers going home
’•Qn emergency leave. The rest are just men traveling around on
normal business.- The procedure is to put your name on the list in
the Operations shack,'with your destination.
When the next plane takes off f<?r that place, as many men as it
can carry are,put aboard. However, on every occasion -when the
waiting men discovered that their ride was going to be in a C-119,
most of them quickly said that they would wait for the next plane,
regardless of the urgency of their mission. ____
As it A with any new type of plane which begins getting its first
heavy operational use, the C-119 was found to need many modifica-
tions. Most of them were aancerned with making sections of the
plane-stouter, and the, work was done in* Japan.
pOR a time the Air Force’thought it had its problems with the plane
licked, until the rash of last winter's prop trouble caused the
grounding. Even after ordering the planes,,kept down, the top Air
Force officer in charge of their use insisted that it was basically a
good airpLine^ideally suited to its specialized use.
The big thing this officer whs worried about in connection with the
Boxcar was that the changes which his use of the plane had found
n ecessaty - -were not, being' incorporated into the new planes which
were coming off the Fairchild lint-; He said he felt fairly sure that
the changes had not been incorporated into the plans given to the
Kaiser-Frazer-Company, which was also going to start making C-U9s
The C-lifts which recently crashed were Fairchild-made planes,
But it isn't said for certain by the Air Force that they had all the
modifications which the Air Force,had Found necessary to make on
them in Korea. If this is true the fault and responsibility for the
death of the men killed in the recent crashes lies squarely with the
red tape in the Pentagon. **

(For Jane Eads)
Washington.—The American Council on Edu-
cation (ACE) reports a remarkable apurt in learn-
ing over the last quarter century.
There are 98 per cent more men end women
in the nation’s colleges and universities now than
there were in 1928, even though there has been
only a 19 per cent rise in total population.
Mapy reasons are offered for the increased
interest in college education, but ACE suggests
one that is not often considered. It singles out
"for special mention the fact that American col-
leges have been steadily raising their standards.
In the sixth edition of its book “American
Universities and Colleges," the Council calls at-
ftwrkm toa "spectacular Increase” in the number
of accredited colleges in the .United States in the
fe In 1928, when the .council put out'it* first edi-
tion of the book, there were only 399 accredited
colleges in. the country. Now there are 904. Near-
ly all of these colleges were in existence in 1928.
