Km 1 the pnst toil mnnllis or so n sppcinl suh- comtuittcc of Mir House Committee of the District of has been studying HIP problems of lio'me rule in (lie District. Its work bus been very silnilnr to tlinl of n speeinl coni- miltee nppointed by President Truman to inquire into civil rk'iits of residenls of Ihe District, Both committees have recommended Hint the people who live in the restricted urea known us Hie District of Columbia privileged to vote, find both committees IIHVC approved njrrcnl- er mensnre of initoiiomy for Ihe people who live in the federal •ict. All the people who work for Uncle tfiim nnd who live in the District iff foliimbin nre unnble to vote for President, Conjjressnum mid Senator beeiinsc they are tiniiblp. to cliiiin residence in n stiile. Simihirly, nil the people who live in the District of Columbia lire unnble lo vote for nny munieipnl nil- Ihorities the municipal irovernmenl of.the capital city is beholden .to H spccinl eomiiiillee of Congress and not to the freeholders nnd voters of "Washington, D. C. Accordingly, both the llonsc subcommittee on home rule nnd reorgHiiixHtion of the District of C'olmnbin and the Presidents' Commiilee on Civil Rights hnve agreed on the following objectives for the District of Columbia: Relieving Congress of the housekeeping functions of the district: C renting n representative locnl poyernmciit for the district isisting of democrat ienlly elected municipal representiitiveM Providing an. efficient nnd representative local municipnl governmental body for the District of Columbia. Whether these objectives can be. achieved in the present session of.Congress is n question. For more limn n half century both political parties have been opposed to giving the residents of Washington an adequate voice in national affairs, and over n longer-period Congress has been reluctant to give the residents of theflistrict any voice Congress has long regarded the its own bailiwick, and Congress residents, predominantly federal employees or officeholders, any voice in the conduct of their municipal government. Reports of these two committees, arriving at their conelu- Mons independently, should serve to influence Congress to give Washington, now a ranking American city, and its residents, a position of self rule in keeping with the national capital's population and importance. Visas For The Russians Complaints have been made from time to time that Russians find it. very easy to gain access to our factories. Heccnt- ly revelations were made by workers in a .Michigan factory that Russian technical employees had gained access to that, plant and were in a position to find out anything they wanted to know. Complaints have readied Washington and Senator Alexander Wiley, Wisconsin Republican is authority for the statement that the Stale Department is now reviewing its policy of granting visas to visiting Russians. Senator Wiley was one of a gron'p of Senators, members of the Judiciary Committee and others, who sought visas to visit Russia last Summer, This group of Congressmen was denied any offiical entry into Russia, and their request was subject lo considerable, criticism over the Soviet radio for even seeking the privilege. The Congressmen were characterized on the Soviet radio as husybodies trying to intervene in Russian nf- fnirs. When Moscow specifically denied any entrance permit, for the American Congressmen, Senator Wiley asked the I'. S. State Department for information regarding the number of . Americans permitted in Russia and the number of Russians permitted in the United States. His request followed one made previously by Senator Ferguson of Michigan along the same lines after the Clark ICqnipmcnt Company union requested similar information regarding the number of Russian technicians admitted to study industrial processes at the, Huchanaii plant. • Undersecretary of Suite Robert A. Lovett made a dirccl reply to Senator Wiley, in the first official statement of our Slate Department regarding the interchange of citizens between America and Russia. The Undersecretary of State asMTted: _"The Department is not in H position to maintain accurate statistics on the issuance nf Soviet visas to private American citizens inasmuch as any Imlder of a valid American passport may apply I'm- ;md receive n Soviet visit without informing this Department: It may lie staled »s a generalization, however, that the Soviet irt'Vcrnincni since the outbreak of World War II has disemirageil travel to the Soviet Union and that American citi/ens applying for Soviet \ -j» H s mii-l demonstrate lo the satisfaction of tin- Soviet authorities some compelling reason for their projected visit before favorable action is taken on their application." All o| ibis simply moans ibat Americans are no admitted to Russia unless they have "eompcllim..' rea-oiis going there. The Congressmen in Senator Wilcx thought they had such compelling reasons, but MOSCOW llioiiuht otherwise, and spclit considerable propaganda time reviling any reasons fop H Congressional group inspecting Russia. On Senator Wiley\ insistence. Undersecretary l.ovett dis closed that there jjre now Till! Russians in the United states on federal pomms. while only ],V> Americans arc now in Rns- sia on Soviet p •rmit.s. The AYUciinsin Senator is now assured that the State Department is ivvieu in'_' ju processes ,,f jssiiinV v jsj, s to Russians to enter the United States, and Senator Wiley is eniill-d to Rome skepticism indcss ibis n .\iew i.^u ,„ „ sji, iri , m ,d immediate curtailment of Russian cniry permits. * * * * '* * * It is another's fault if he be uiigratelijl. b u i it j s ' I do not give.

WASHINGTON MERRY-(iO-ROUND ly ORIW PIARSON ABOARD THE SOUTHWEST SPECIAL FRIENDSHIP TRAIN— A lot of my editors are probably, wondering when I am going to quit collecting food und g;t back to being » newspaperman tso, also, is my wife). However, when the people of the Southwest announce thai they've been blessed with a big wheat crop and want to share it with others, and when they go out and raise some 150 carloads of wheat with no urging from anyone and no help from their government —then that, in my opinion, is news. Furthermore, it's invigorating, stimulating news, that I get a lot more kick out of writing nboul than I do pecking through keyholes in Washington. One of the hardest things to tell in print, however, is the enthusiasm, the generosity, and the enterprise of the American people sponse has been equally warm and thrilling. This has not been government aid from diplomat to diplomat, but from people to people. Every conceivable cross srctiun of American life has cooperated. Railroads and railroad employees, sm.-ill towns and big towns, nil religions, all rac?s, rich and poor—all turned out at the railroad station!* to help build the bridge of friendship between Europe and the United .Slates. In Ft. Worth, Texas, bin-hearted Amon Carter, Vvho usually Rives away broud-brimmeci Tjxas hats, this time gave nway 15 carloads of flour lalong with other Ft. Worth Down in Texas tho eight dis-tricl managers o.r the Lions Club worked so intensively that carload after carloiul came in from all over Texas— Long View, Odessa, Austin, Amnrillo, PJuinvicw, Lubbock, Sher- Beaumont. . Other service plus local radio slations and ' man, ; clubs, newspapers, worked 'with them. The Hock Island Railroiid and the Missouri Pacific helped tho Santa Fe by bringing these off-thc-mainline cars to Wichita, where the Santa Fe Southwest Special started. In Pennsylvania, the Rending Railroad also cooperated with the Pcnn RR In hauling off fivv cars. Outstanding Response Greenville, S. C., decided to attach one boxcar to the Friendship Train, but, bcfoic it finished, hooked on two. Reported Broadus Bailey of Greenville: "For muny years I have helped our community campaigns, but never have I seen such a voluntary response." In Toledo, Ohio, Arthur Wiolnnd. vice president of Willys Overland,! organized a fleet of station wagons and jeeps to pick up douations. Up in the mountains of Central Pennsylvania, well off the main line of the train, Lockhnven and Renovo insisted on loading cars. So did Williamsport, Clcarficld, Belle- Tyrone and "other . .

Tnft's campaign for i'uc.ident r;in be boosted or damaged beyond repair by the high-cosl-of-llving dispute in Congress. Right now President Truman has tho Republican dongrcss and Taft on the "spot. Mr. Truman has a ck-finilc and publicly slated program .ind the Republic-fins have 1 not. Tho l is where Tafl's political future lies in the. balance. He repudiated much of the Truman program last week a few. hours nfter tho president outlined it before a Joint session of Congress. In particular, Tafl objected to wage-price controls nnd rationing, limited or not. There has been a scattering of protest that Tnfl took too much on himself when he answered Mr. Tru- ninti with. an immediate chall?Jige. Republican majorities supported by some conservative Democrats pretty well established GOP policy on vvag;'-price controls and rationing at the last session. The Repub' Means were against them. It is a 1,'ood bet that the feOP 'will stand hitched to that policy and, in effect, make good on Tuft's broadcast repudiation of curtain phases of Mr. Truman's plan for our home front economy. But If months c'lapse and the price situation becomes worse instead of better, the Republicans, and Tnft, will criticism lhat be a they fair target for failed to give Willium Allen While—four cars, to say nothing of Pueblo.

And so on and on , . . The roll- call of American generosity Is too long to tabulate here but it's bills of lading sp?ll out just one thing— the heartfelt desire of millions of Americans to help and to live at peace with their fellow'men.

Tiix reduction for all brackets of individuals. 2. A substantial dcciense in gov- a-imiciit spending. The Republicans do not have much belter chance to get Mr. Truman's agreement to those objectives thali he has to obtain Iheirs for wage-price control and rationing. The Congress hiay substantially reduce long-term financial aid 10 Europe as proposed in the Marshall Plan. But that would hot materially reduce govern m cut spending next year below the levels of this year. It seems likely, therefore, that the Republicans finally Will Vote to Mr. Truman soitio but hot all of the anti-inflation powers he .asked. During the regular session beginning next January the Congress Unquestionably will pass another tax reduction bill and Mr. Truman will have to decide whether to veto It in an election year? Me has Velodd two tax reduction bills since last January. The Republicans prob' nbly, will make some reductions in Mr. Truman's budget request for appropriations in addition to any trimming of the Marshall Plan.
