Including the speeches the ceremony took less than two hours. The actual .signing of the historic document, which gives a new turn to the course of post-var world history regulred approximately 12 minutes. Secretary ol State Dean Acheson signed for the United States with Mr. Truman and Vice President Albert Barkley standing at hts right hand. The first signature was affixed by Belgium's premier and Foreign Minister Paul-Henri Spaak, who was called to the front of the rostrum by Achexon, acting as master ol ceremonies, immediately after Mr. Trnman spoke. The president, like all 12 of the foreign ministers, sounded the theme of peace as embracing the malnr purpose of the new alliance "In thU pact," he said, "we hope to create a shield against arKrexslon and the fear of ajCKren-, slon—» bulwark which will permit us to get on the real business of government and society, the business of achelvinff a fuller and happier life for our citizens." Mr. Truman called the pact signing a "milestone In history" at a dinner given last night for the foreffrti ministers. Mr. Trnmnn, In his talk at the late afternoon signing ceremony, called the pact a simple document, out added: "If it had existed in 1914 and in 1939. supported by the nations which are represented here today, I believe it would have prevented the acts of oppression which led to two world wars." Like the other speakers, the president avoided naming Russia specifically but at two points he refer- I red obviously to the Soviet Union. •Moclation, "of orgtnlilng diverse peoples and cultures, is In direct contrast to the method of the police state, which attempts to achieve unity by Im-poslng the same beliefs and the same rule ol force on everyone." Mr. Truman also blamed Russia for creating the necessity for such a regional alliance. He said he United States and other countries had hoped to establish an International united nations force for preserving world peace but those efforts "have been Rental Ceilings Lifted In Some Arkansas Areas WASHINGTON, April 5.

Edison Thought of ( Government In Any Business "There Is far more danger in public monopoly than there is in private monopoly, for when the government goes into business it can always shift its losses to the taxpayers. If it goes into the power business it can pretend to sell cheap power and then cover up its losses. "The government never really goes into business, for it never makes ends meet. And that is the first requisite of business. It just mixes a little business with a lot of politics and no one ever gets a chance to find out what is actually going on. I feel so strongly on the government keeping out of business that if I had my way all the government should have is an efficient inspection bureau." —Thomas A.
