Maldng Americans Quickly A proposal to simplify the process of nntnraliziiling aliens lias been made by Secretary of Labor Frances Perkins. Under existing laws, she (old the Commonwealth Club of San Krancisco, tests for immigration arc too drastic. She recommended tluil requirements for "responsible aliens" bo relaxed. This would include, Miss Perkins said, literacy losls for elderly aliens. The millions of Americans out of work could not be expected to take kindly to any plan that would open the gates to a flood of aliens, polen-' tial competitors for the few jobs available. After a reasonable number of immigrants have been admitted, it should be the desire of officials everywhere to make them good Americans as soon as possible, Sufficient time must be given them, however, for re/lections on the responsibilities of citi/.ciiship and to make certain they arc fully prepared to relinquish their loyalties to any other countries. BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS Parliament WMtcs Blank Chech A now system of making appropriations has been devised in Knt'Iaiul. When the war leaders need money, they go to Parliament and ask for 100 pounds (about §500). Obviously, they need more than that for the functions Of government—and actually, the H)0 pounds is really considerably more. 11 may be a million pounds, or .10 million pounds. The figure, "100," is merely a token. Not even Parliament knows how much it is voting. All it knows thai it has agreed to let. the war cabinet spend another 100' pounds— plus. It is difficult to imagine the United States Congress operating under such procedure. Conjure up a picture, if you can, of the President going before Die House and saying, "I need sonic more money. Write me another blank cheek." What is oven more difficult, fry to imagine Congress doing it. Everyone Loses in War Unrlchidcd in n world of propagnmlii, tho Baptist, Congregation^, Methodist, Presbyterian churches and the Church of Christ, Salvation Army nml Society ot Friends in South Australia recently issued a message, part of which said: "No nation of today can win a war.

Japanese-leaders pn>- Icnd now to find themselves in the position of knowing nothing about the weird reasons the United States had for calling off formal trade agreements. "What does the United States rc- iliicsl from Japan for readjustment of relations?" asked the leader of one of Japan's major parlies, recently. "The security of the lives and properly of American residents in China," replied Foreign Minister Ilachiro Arita. If Japan will only call off her ruthless aggression in China, she may have her treaty with the United Slates. It's a.s simple as that.

Pulling City Employment on A Scientific Basis The city of Greensboro, N. C.. (population 5.1,569) sought n personnel program designed to achieve the best possible standards of public service nt the lowest cost compatible with fair treatment of the employes. The first stop was to employ the Public Administration Service or Chicago to survey the city government, classify llic various positions ami prepare a salary slancliirrtlzalion plan based on the principle ol equal liny for equal work and degree of responsibility borne. The classification study, carried out by means of questionnaires and personal interviews to provide complete nnd detailed information, produced what, amounted to an Inventory of nil the various classes or position.-; on Uie city pay roll. The compensation pliin floivect logically ami tquilably out of Ihe classification process, Brief descriptions of certain key classes of positions were sent in (lie form of mimeographed copies lo Greensboro business establishments, whose owners were asked lo indicate the going rales of l»y for comparable positions in private employment.

"I don't know—just any kind Mightn't an individual be so desperately lonely that he, or she, would put a feeler in the paper?' Ann's head was bent over the steaming machine. "I think he, or she, would be pretty hard up." There was a silence while Ann smoothed the crown. Mrs. Pringle drew n long thread from a spool and snipped it off with, her discolored teeth. "Voung girls shouldn't fool nround with things like that," she said at last. "There's too much deviltry going on in a city like this, loo many racketeers on the lookout for girls who are alone and unprotected." Ann nodded.
