Durkln, named as the new Secretary of Labor, once was a plumber. We've heard of leaks In Washington. Vote Monday .with City's Best Interests in Mind To faithfully discharge your duty as a citizen, you should mark your ballot on Monday mindful of one consideration: the best interests of Blylheville. • ,Tha $125,000 bond issue (which actually will increase the city's boudt-cl in- riebtedntss. by only $100,000) will be. used, if authorized by Monday's vote, to acquire ISO acres of land Tor reactivation of the air base. Insofar that this 1.8 mill tux applies to real property, it is n fair method ot financing the air base project. For there is little doubt that reactivation will enhance the value of all real properly. The same can't be said of the lux in regard to personal property. Many civic-minded merchants favor the issue due mainly lo the fact Unit, in this fund-raising campaign as in others, some businesses gave sparingly, others gave nothing. The load will be evenly distributed through the bond issue. Actually, the issue will not mean an increase in taxes, but it will signify a decrease in tax inductions. .Originally, the city planned to trim 3.5 mills from its citizens' lax load during 1953. If the issue passes, the millage will be reduced by 1.7 mills. In any matter of civic financing in Blylheville, sewers become a factor. True, that $100,000 would not go very far in construction of Blythcville's proposed $1.3 million sewer system. Still, the cily might find itst-lf hard pressed for millage when it decides to take action. These are the salient points of Monday's vote as we view them. Consider them and then vote. used for a number of lsrf« suppjy dumps. Lying within the established neutral zone, th osfa headquarters and tiies* dumps enjoy 100 per cent protection from UN attack. Worse than this, the Reds have in recent times been parking artillery pieces near thfc borders of the Kaesong zone, knowing they are safe there from return fire, since answering bombardment might go astray and land in neutral territory. Some analysts point out that the Kaesong hub could actually be employed as a staging area for a new Red attack some day on the approaches to Seoul. It lies athwart the halural route to the South Korean capital. The UN forcts, for their part, get no comparable advantage from the neutrality of I heir truce bilk base, Munsan. They are attempting no key buildup there, and in any event Allied installations have not during Ihfc entire war been subject to Red aerial bombardment. Red artillery is not close enough, apparently, to do damage there if Ihe chance presfcnted itself. The truce talks at Kaesong and I'an- munjom are ended, and they are unlikely lo be resumed. Since the preservation of the nfetitrnl zone now serves no purpose except to further Communist war aims, it ought to be abolished and UN guns and planes ought lo go after llctl emplacements and GllO's immediately. Views of Others Human Nature and Doctor Bills Human nature sometime* lakes strange directions as nobody knows better than the family doctor — especially after he sends out hti monthly hills. i Patients who were grateful 'or his services suddenly complain about "the high cost of medical care." And since the doctor Is human too. he can't help wondering how -so many of his patients can afford radio ami television and autos, but not an appendectomy. As a nmlter of fact, part of the problem of medical costs actually Is a question of what shculd go where on the family budget, according to Or, Emerson P. Schmidst, director of economic rescalch for the Chamber of Commerce of the United .States. Dr. Schmidt so testified recently before the President's Commission on the Health Needs of the Nation. Tlie commission Is reviewing the pros and cons of compulsory health insurance, dreaded by most physician'; as "state medicine." The National Chamber's economist nolert that in 1951 Americans spent almost as much for alcohol and tobacco as. .they did for health, and mcdlcnl services. He pointed out that a Bureau of Labor Statistics surv'ey In the previous year showed lhat In city after city only n small fraction of the average family Income was spent on medlrnl care — about four or five dollars per $100 Income. Perhaps, then, an Dr. Schmidt suggested, bct- •ter,family budgeting Is one answer to Ihe cost of medical care. ' —Tarboro (N. C.) Southerner.

Talks Ended, UN Should Hit Red Truce Zone Buildup Western military experts are pretty well agreed now that the Allies were taken in when they accepted the Communists' bid for truce talks in Korea back in 1951. The evidence suggests overwhelmingly that the Ueds had no real thought of a tvvsce pact, but used Uie talks as a screen for a tremendous buildup of manpower and material in North Korea. What is not so generally realized, however, is that the Reds are getting direct military advantage out of the very sites of the truce talks, especially Kaesong, the original one.

Bob Stack's girl friend, Claudett* "liornton, has been dropped by Peter Edson'f Washington Column — Flying Boxcar Rhubarb Reveals Top Policy Problem Awaits Ike By DOUGLAS LARSEN NEA Staff Correspondent (for 1'etcr Kelson) WASHINGTON — (NEA)— The big rhubarb over Kaiser-Frazer's cost of building C-119 Hying Boxcars compared to the Fairchlld Company's cost has touched a raw nerve at Ihe Pentagon, It involves a top policy question ol Ihe country's defense planning which will eventually have to be settled by President-elect Elsen- i bower and his new defense chief, Charles E. Wilson. Sen. Styles Bridges (R., N.H.) raised tho Issue by asking the Senate Preparedness Committee to investigate n story he had heard that the Air Force was paying 51,200,000 each for C-119's from Katser-Frazer and S2GO.OOO each for trm same plane from Fairchild. Pentagon brass is upset about the excitement which the story has caused because Bridges' facts, although incomplete, nre approximately accurate. The Joint Chiefs of Staff knew a long time ago that there would be this difference in costs of the C-119. They tried to explain it to Congress. Furthermore, the same difference in costs of Ihe same item from two manufacturers exists for many weapons, Here's the way Air force spokesman explains it: Extra Cast Is For "Insurance 1 "The extra cost we are paying >r Boxcars is the cost of insurance. We knew when we gave the contract that C-119's from them would cost more thnn the Boxcars we were buying from FairchiM. But what we want- wns to get a big part of the Witlow Run plant converted to aircraft production. "The extra cost (or each Boxcar also pays for (or a great deal of standby capacity. When the Kaiser contract is completed, if a crisis should arise, the plant there-would he capable of. turning out 250 planes per month. The Fairchild plant alone could never do this." There's more to (he Kaiser-story. than that, the Air P'orce explains. When Kaiser completes its present contract, for 159 C-lio's it will go into production on a brand new cargo plane, the C-I23. When this conversion takes place the Willow Run plant be a completed aircraft plant, fully Eoolcd for the production of cargo planes and with an efficient, well-trained corps of aircraft workers. According to Air Force plans, the C-123 will do a more versatile job than the C-119 and there will be ft greater'need for them. However, the C-119 will continue to have an important job to do. The C-123 is designed to land on rough, unprepared land. It lands •U low speed and doesn't need a long strip, ulres. As which the CM19 re- result the C-123 will be used for moving troops and supplies Into forward combat areas. " Last February Roswell Gilpatric, Undersecretary of the Air Force, told si congressional committee: "Second sources have been activated or planned for nil but three major aircraft models so we will have two producers (or each major item. In some cases such second sources of supply items will be retained even at the sacrifice of lower unii costs to insure readiness for full mobilization." In June Gilpatric also told Congress. "By providing (or multiple sources for its principal items of equipment, the Air Force increases the chances that an atomic attack would not, stroy our Bob Waterfleld's announcement lhat he's quitting pro football Jan 10 is the cue movie producer Sam Kntzmnn has been waiting for.
