No-Hurry Congressmen Win Point StoI Ting ERP Months ago Secretary of State Marshall urged an April 1 (leadline for putting the European Recovery Program into action. His suggestion got *\ cold reception from some of our most influential congressmen. They have consistently resisted the idea that speed is a vital factor in the ERP. And in their consideration of the Marshall Plan they have put that resistance into action. So now tliere is no chance that ERP will be functiining by April 1, and there i.a only a slim chance that legislation to create it will even be passed by then. The no-nepd-to-hurry group has clearly won its point. It would he interesting to know if the no-hurry legislators are aware that there is an election coming up j,, Italy O n April 18—an election of which Premier de Gasperi has said: "We must win this time or we will never vote in Italy again." If those legislators are aware of this election, it also would be interesting to know whether they see any connection between it and Secretary Marshall's deadline. Italy's anti-Communists would at least have a talking point if, before April 18, the EK1' were sct up and on its way, r a tl, cr than merely a promise and a subject for bitter debate. This would not put al , extra dollar or an extra mouthful of American food into Italy before the election. But it would surely strengthen the hand of Italian democrats, who will have a hard struggle at best to win. If Italy goes Communist, free Europe will then consist only of Greece, France, Switzerland, Belgium, the Netherlands, and the Scandinavian countries. French Communists are biding their time. If Haly falls, who can say that the next French general strike will not succeed? And if France falls. who will save the others? It must be clear, even to the no-hurry congressmen, that the Soviet empire has stepped up the tempo of its drive for all Europe and that the climax is approaching. Congress saw Czechoslovakia lost in one day. Not long afterward a senator took all but a half hour of one day's debate on the .Marshall Plan with a generalized attack on all Europe which amounted to a short filibuster. This was part of what has been called one of the most fateful debates in our history. But during part of the senator's almost interminable contribution to it, there was a grand total of eight senators listening to him! The congressional objectors don't want to be rushed into this thing. They think that aid to free countries would help Russia more than letting Russia •wallow all of Europe by withholding *kl. They just don't like foreigners. Tkey think that a nation that spent ' f330,000,000,000to defeat Nazi Qer- might be ruined by spending ?5,. 000,000,000 in an effort to beat communism, The no-hurry congressmen can't seem to realize that it isn't Secretary Marshall or Senator Vandenberg or President Truman who is rushing them into this thing. The man who is hurrying them is Josef Stalin. Elementary Democracy A German "senate," meetirig in Frankfurt, has rather shocked the Bizonia officials by holding a meeting behind locked <ioors. The principal reason for the siiock seems to be that the tfi'ou|> of 16 members was set up to teach the Germans democracy.

COURIER NEWS —— — It Always Helps to Ease the Pain TUESDAY, MARCH is. i For Give Well-plucked Motorist a Rest If the proposal (o Install parking meters In the clly comes before the Council Monday night, R should be rejected. Motorists ]>Ay enough taxes now, without requiring them to dig Into their pockets every lime they want to stop on the tl town streets. No group of citizens Is more Lhorouehry tnxcd. They pay «11 of the taxes ]»jd 011 ol (,er citizens, and a whopping tolnl of special levies on their vehicles, to finance the state highway program. Prom tlicse funds, kickbacks are made to the cities and counties for roads and streets. Our gasoline tax hi Arkansas is one of the highest In the i8 states. It would be grossly unjust to slam another f80,000-a-year levy on motorists In Little Rock, with parking meters. That Is the estimated amount these annoyances would yield. The Idea Is so unfair on the fnce of it that the Council should rtfuse to countenance this raid, by approving it for a city vole. All the arguments for parking meters are specious and shallow. They sift down to mere excuses for putting a well-plucked group ol citizens through the works agjin, for another cleaning. No fine words about it will change that distasteful fact. —ARKANSAS DEMOCRAT President Truman Gets Bow Tie Plugging New Coin Idea THE DOCTOR SAYS By Edwin P. Jordan, M.

And if the final measure follow,! substantially the bill approved by the Senate Banking Commit:", the connlry should get a better law than for a lime seemed probable. The bill, for one thing, protects tenants who signed those voluntary leases with 15 per cent increases against the pyramiding of another boost. On the other hand, it follows ihe assumption that no landlord should bc compelled lo continue in the renting business at a loss. The committee rightly voted down dangerous proposals that an area bi; completely decontrolled whenever i or 2 1-2 per cent of rental property becomes vacant. A little collusion o,, the part ot landlords could have produced such conditions neatly and artificially. Why do 50 many conservatives in Congress as well as their leftward colleagues, support rent controls, whereas price regulation in oilier fields just now hao little chance? To say thai tenants have more votes than landlords is not a sufllcic'nt answer. Labor casts more votes than do Industrialists, too. Yet the 'fan-Hartley Act passed. It is probably because these Congressmen have come to accept the validity of ihrcc arguments: 1. Even were rcnls allowed tc rise freely m accord with supply and demand. It would still be several years before enough ,,ew construction thus stimulated could l, c completed to meet the need for low and medium rental quarters. 2. in the meantime, shelter and a minimum ot room arc such utterly essential family needs thai tney cannot be trifled with. The hardships at slake for the tenants loom greater than the hardships to some landlords. 3. Rent control has proved workable—even with other controls gone. Rents have increased by but 10 per cent within the 5amc nc ,., ort ,„ whlch ^ total cost of Hvin B ,,as gollc up 66 pci . ccm Nothing that has happened so /ar i a '„„«,, seems likely to weaken this case. -CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR.
