Washburn Job Insurance Is Something for a Really Rainy Day The Arkansas Democrat in a rc- (jl.icent survey of public opinion announced that sweeping changes are due in the state's unem'ploy- ."•'• ment compensation law. Abuses, said the Democrat;' are , siphoning off a considerable por- ;. tion of the savings laid by for the '.. protection of employes when hard .-'; times come around again — as '•' they will. : The newspaper rcpor'.od the total . : amount on deposit with tho stale government for job insuranc-j is - .$35,785,409. The fund was star,.ed ty in 1937, so that this total represents an 11-year accumulation. The av- . eragc deposit in the fund thcvc- • -fore was $3.258.224 oer year. 1 But Iherc was withdrawn from the fund in 194fi alone $3.874.719; and even when the agenoy tightened up on unemployment pay-outs in 1047 the tolal witrrlrawal for that year was $2,940.189. This is a fraudulent an 1 di.-.. graceful record for a time when labor is actually scarce and .iobs ..'. are known to be plentiful. & Why should the employing companies — who stand 'ho on'iro expense — go on paving ttnom- nloymont benefits at all if tho fund, instead of being reserved for hard time.".-, is to be squandered in times like these. The stale ought to suspend unemployment payments entirely for the time being .until tho nnoiTi- ' •• ployment fund gets rid of its reputation for being a source of easy money. Either this, or t,h" iinomploy- ^ ment-coiTmonKati'in half of Hie ' Social Security System is in danger of being repealed.

But just not having a iob is not always subject to proof that y«! are unintentionally unemployed. The record is full of deceit and fraii'l.

Povint's Danube Policy Spites Eurooe, but Hurts Ru"ia, Too By JAMES THRASHER By the lopsided STII-P of 7 4 o n. Russia's Andrei Vishinsky and a learn of Soviol stooges shut out the western world from ivnst of tho Danube River at the Belgrade con fercnce. Thus the great and portant river has become a private jno m Communist stream for about two- i "nion thirds of it navigable course. The conference was a depressing but interesting example of Soviet technique when tho "Russians have a large and obedient majority on their side. All of the ten delegations included experts on law, shipping, cnai- . neering and other technical sub-1 jects. But, as U.S. *—' ' Cannon pointed out. all discussions were steered down a political channel. Mr. Vishinsky brought the Russian draft of the convention, or agreement, to the conference. The western delegations were invited to take it or leave it. They left it. of course. And after some 20 days of fruitless lalk. the Communist delegations signed the convention with scarcely a word, much less a basic idea, changed from the original draft which Mr. Vishinsky presented. That, of course, is tho Soviet pattern of government and diplomacy. At home they permit no deviation bv the faithful, lot alone any word of opposition. In their international discussions, such as tho UN and foreign ministers' meetings, compromise is almost unheard of. When they are outnumbered they are inclined to veto or walk out. When they are in power, as they were in Belgrade, they steam-roller their program through with scarcely a pretense of the diplomatic amenities.

The six-day old strike by 10.000 truck drivers in New York City, became more serious as 3.500 AFL truckmen in northern New Jersey joined in the walkout. The full effects of the work stoppage were felt by millions living .in the metropolis and northern New Jersey. Conferences lo reach agreement in the disputes were scheduled today. On .the West Coast, where 28,000 CIO longshoremen have been idle i m - since last Wednesday, there was ove for settlement by cither on or shipowners. Some 160 ships are tied up from Pugct Sound to Sin Diego. The army has to ask longshoremen to handle army cargo for commercial ships to assure supplies for the East be kept moving.
