United Nations House Hunt The solemn, history-makinvr session ""iff 'the United Nations seem destined ! to continue in the same incongruous I settings that have formed the'back- ) drop.'for its deliberations ever since it J chose' the 'United States as a perman- j cut home.'First it was an opera house, ' then a girls' gymnasium. And now the i .organization is to divide its activities • between ' a gyroscope factory and a I skating rink on a deserted fairgrounds. {• Of courae,'.;the UN has run into the I same housing shortage that afflicts J anyone wanting, to make a change oC \ residence or business address today. • Rut the final decision on a temporary , home (which may have to do for two ', to five years) seems an unhappy one. j i*Tp get over- the least important ol>- ;. jedtiau.lfirjt,. there is a symbolism al) tached tjf"'tlTp chosen buildings which \ provokes ; a rsttiirer ominous snicker un| becoming to the seriousness of the i UN's task.

The two buildings are nine £ miles apart. The Sperry plant, where g the Council' and Secretariat will hold H forth, is 22 miles from mid-town Man- 5 haittan, where the delegates make their j headquarters. The old City of New j* York building, left over from the v | WoFld's Fair, 'is' seven miles distant 5 from midtown. J* :-,.Transportation to the Sperry plant £ will involve a lot of changes for those f members of the organization who don't X have cars—and it's a sure thing that £; notf^JK-the* clerical^ staff is so blessed. p In addition, the 'surroundings of the £ two sites seem somewhat less than was built, people have been wondering what would happen aitcr the war to this while elephant which at one time housed 30,000 ' military and civilian Workers. A logical solution might be to turn it over to the United Nations. The Pentagon isn't beautiful, but it is commodious. There are shops and restaurants and some rather flossy office-suites already iiistallccl, us well as hundreds of unglnmorous but efficient workrooms. It could probably be remodeled to suit UN needs as easily as the skating rink or the gyroscope factory. No doubb it would even be possible to convert some of the space into dwelling units, if the housing shortage still warranted such a move. The building is close to downtown Washington. There is <)iiick bus service and ample parking space. And surely our peacetime Army would have ample room in the several other buildings in the capital which it used during the war. Probably the Pentagon has been considered and rejected. It may be felt that il is too close to the scat and influence of the American government— though with New York immediately accessible' by telephone and only about an hour away by air, that would seem a rather secondary consideration. Al any rate, the UN officials have made (heir choice. But we still think they have passed up a good bet.

"Come on," he said, "what d'ye say we let him go? See what he'll do." Bull glanced up at him impatiently, then pointed his quivering nose out toward the open hills again. Ellic untied the knot and held the collar, glancing round at Debby. She nodded and he let go.

MODERN "MONEY CIIANOEHS" ATTACK OPA CONTROLS The cHef priests of special interest, make a great noise before the Congress, like the moneychangers scourged from the temple, bemoaning the wrongs done tlicir traditional privileges. Their demand rises in chorus for an end to all price and wage controls, to satisfy their lust lor more and more gain. A small clique of the lawmakers threatens an end to all efforts at stabilizing the prices on at; tural products. They do this own though farm income is higher than it hits ever bcen_ and even HIOIM still higher farm prices can or mean a disastrous inflation. Th do ' this because they arc an^nnl that, speculators have been curbed in Ihcir wagering on future prices of cotton.
