Our Doily Bread Sliced Thin by The Editor • Alex. H. Washburi Disagreement It's the Hecrt of a Democracy There is no sharper line defining the dilference between the political and editorial approach to public questions than the line, newspapers «>.themselves draw when picKing a syndicated columnist 1'or publication. Both the political candidate and the newspaper columnist arc measured by "popularity"; but a candidate is elected because you agree wit.li him, while a columnist is "elected" because you read nun—even though you want to knock his head off. Up in Peoria, 111.. Bradley university took a poll of Peoria newspaper readers on what they •»"• thought of the syndicated column's published in their town. One of the columns in questions was that oC Wcstbrook Pcgler. which, moved daily by telegraph, also is published by The Star. In Peoria it was discovered that 4(9 oL 1,031 interviewed subscribers read Peglcr much of the time, and 224 read him "always." Of the 224 who read him every day 70 disagree with what he says, 31 agree, and the rest are undecided. Arid of those who read Pcgler •'some ot the time, 114 disagree with him and 24 agree. From the standpoint of political popularity Mr. Pegler would never in the world gel elected. But from a newspaper standpoint lie is "hot"—that is, right or wrong, you read him. Call il what you will—readers see-kins relief from boredom, citi- /.ens wanting lull information, or Americans simply practicing everyday tolerance in a republic— the long-time reaction of the U.S. public M to cc.lumnists whom they read only A to disagree with it; one of the most significant things to be found in our daily press. Certainly il is a major prop in helping to hold U)) our constitutional guarantees oi freedom of speech and pi-ess and peaceable assembly. But basically it may be no more than the natural human suspicion that none of us is right all of the time. "You read a column for two reasons—one, to find out that the Hi newspaper writer is wrong; and, two, on the chance that he may humble sonic of your own preconceived truths. And this will continue to be a free and self-governing nation as long as Americans feel that way. + * •* Spend Money to Save Money Is Mor a l of Hoover Report By JAMES THRASHER President Truman has named a WEATHER FORECAST Arkansas -•- Considerable doirl ness this afternoon a>.v.l toi\ij;iit.

Iled tape in the single operation of purchasing, the report staleu, is costing an unnecessary $250,000,-,000 a year. It went on to list a number of "underlying deficiencies" which had been uncovered by a task force headed by Husscll Forbes, former commissioner of purchase for Ihe City of New York. The recital of .shortcomings had a familiar sound, even though it included some that are peculiar to tho job in question, i'or it contained the same criticisms which arc. always lound when somebody throws a light on government lune- tiou—too many confusing laws and i regulations, overlapping and in- I lY'Complelc authority, too many fingers in the pie, mountains ol. needless paperwork. But this interim report did more than expose the tangle of red tape. 11 gave some idea of what causes the snarl. And by implication it suggested :;orne remedies, pending more specific prescriptions in the final report. "The emphasis ot ihe laws (governing piirchasin;,) is not on pro- moluiy, efficiency and economy," the task force wrote, "but upon ..^preventing graft. Over-regulation " encourages routine buying, prevents economy and the exercise of inii lalivc." The statement calls new attention to one of the costly weaknesses i.-[ our ever-growing government machine. The biggest business in the world is run by methods that a successful private business would not tolerate lor a week. Mr. Hoover's task force has put .its linger on one of tho sorest spots: The emphasis is not on economy and efficiency, but on pro- f .venting dishonesty. This in turn traces to the scale of government salaries. The government needs capable, expei it-need executive:; in all cle-( partnienls as much as any business j -lin The terrorists were not members i of any organized night-riding outfit but merely used "crude home made hoods" to hide their identity.' 'Sloan said. The assistant district attorney general said two of the men are charged with arson and making threats while under disguise, one with arson, and three with making threats while under disguise. Sloan said additional charges will be filed later against the seventh man, now in jail serving a sentence for a liquor violation. The six others are free under bonds ranging from 81,000 to $10,000. The committee has been searching for the typewriter ever since it got its hands on papers which Whitltaker Chambers, who says he was a courier for the Communists in 1930. testified were stolen government documents. Experts in identification say \ t\ u every typewriter has individual'Hughes charactcristcs which can be detected.

Some operators are wondering whether Lewis will call some kind ot mine shutdown to trim the above-ground reserves. Any big supply of coal such as the 70.0011.000 tons already mined and i eady for use is bad for the miners when they are negotiating a new contract.
