Ike's Value to Europe May Apply Equally to U. S. Bernard M. Bni-uch, elder statesman I .without portfolio but with H word of wisdom under his white hair, gave America something new and profound to think about for 1952 when lie stepped : off the boat froir^ Europe the other day. ; - In essence, it was: "Don't draft Ike." I ^fXThis doesn't mean that the wise old man who is famed both as a park bench philosopher and an adviser to Presidents has anything against General Eisenhower's qualifications "for the job in the White House. What Baruch bclives is that the job Eisenhower is doing now in Europe is too important to give up—a job, said Baruch, that "is probably the most important a single individual has had in our lifetime." Because of that, lie thinks It would be a "great disservice" to Eisenhower to put him into politics. No one can quarrel with Baruch'* definition of the role Eisenhower is play• ing as military leader of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, a role which may well determine whether we have : peace in our time, a role on which hinges . the security of the whole Free World. The "Draft Ike" sponsors had better consider Baruch's words carefully.' And leaders of both parties better think tilings over, too, before they seize upon Ike as the man either to keep themselves in power or to get back into power. But the consideration should be two- sided, neither a tubtluimping rush to draft a hero on whose coatlails they can ride to victory, nor a quick brush-off of his presidential possibilities because of the job he has now. For Baruch had some other words to say about Eisenhower. "He is a man entirely without self- interest," Baruch said of (he general. "His sole desire is to bring the Western nations together and also satisfy the American people." If those are good qualifications for a man who i> leading the Free World toward security, they also sound like good qualifications for a man to lead the United Stales. And if, under the pressure of politics, Eisenhower could still fulfill his sole desire, it might be a "great disservice" not to draft him. than usual in moit pl«c«i, for th« lonf- range forecast i> "temperatures «buv« the seasonal normal." This hot equality probably won't eliminate the seasonal quota of short temper*, brow-moppJJijr, "hol-enough- for-you" cliches and other summer complaints. There should he comfort, however, in knowing that just about everybody else is in the same hot water, and that Uncle Henry, sweating it out in Shamokin, is no better off than you are, sizzling in Sheboygan. Views of Others Calamity Howler Always With Us Weatherman Declares Unification No matter how American people disagree wilh each other on politics, prices, baseball and other lofty matters, we are assured of one form of unity this month.

Keiler- Ing, 74-year-old Inventor of the automobile self- ulatler, developer at the Diesel engine and retired vice president of General Motors. He ought to know. "You can't write anything that coulrf be nptim- IMic enough to describe our future in the United States," he said. Mr. Ketterlng haa no patience with Hit backward-lookers. He thinks too many look back to the lo-called good old days. If these people had their way, he satil, automobiles would be built with steering wheels In the hack end of the car. So don't sell short the economic and social prospects of the United States. That much-discussed American dollar, although temporarily shriveled, ii n good investment compared to the ruble and yuan. And even after the "ducks" tatter our pay envelope* we still have a better living than other people* or tht world. Our past progrei» In our yardstick for the future. There might be some bumps but non» too serious. —ARKANSAS DEMOCRAT Planners Miss Badly In Budget Estimates Thost bright young government boyj. whi» want to plan the lives of all of us, as well as our budgets, haven't set much of an example In their own provhiM. In > recent issue o( Newsweek. Hem Hazlitt exposed the whole record of federal buctuet estimates for the last seventeen y»r». It's • a sorry spectacle of ban guessing. In only one year of the seventeen did th« Budget Bureau estimate the federal expenditure! st. all accurately. For four years the error was 5 per cent or less. But in the other dozen years tht bureau'i figures were otf 8 to 85 per cent. ltd record in estimating reveiiiieK wns almost as bad. for tht fiscal year of 1951 it predicted « deficit of more than five billions, but the Treasury ended this period with a surplus of more than three billions, despite the heavy expcntliture« on the Korean war, which had not begun when the estimate was made It] January of last year. These advcoates of planned economy, who seek more power from Congress every year, have hardly set a record that Invites confidence. Private business firms that made such bad guesses would go bankrupt quickly. Congress is wise in refusing lo extend the range and authority of the economic planners. —DALLAS MORNING NEWS SO THEY SAY Dawn Will Come Up Like Thunder As Living Costs Rise, The Consumer Pays Sunday School _esson By Wll.UAM St., Gil, ROY, D.D Jesus said, contrasting Himself and His mission with those who come to steal, kill, and destroy: 'I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it :nore abundantly." Few people realize how greatly Peter Cdson's Washington Column— Truth of Yalta Lies Between The Pro and Anti Extremists the economy and psychology of Judaism, and of the Christianity of Jesus, who said He, had come, not to destroy, but to fulfill, were the economy and psychology of abundance. "Be fruitful and multiply." was represent ed as God's injunction to the chosen people. "A land [lowing wilh milk and j honey" was the desirable environment of the good .society, and the descriptions of pastoral richness anil blessedness were such as to delight the heart of any eager farmer — pastures clothed with flocks, valleys covered with corn, paths dropping fatness, hills rejoicing on every side, singing and shouting for Joy (Psalm 65). How does It come about, then, (hat Christianity, and religion in general, has been to such an extent represented as on the side of suppression, repression, denial, and self-imposed restrictions, even at times to the glorification of poverty? The fact is familiar of the anchorite saints, of the more worthy renouncing the world anrl its worldy ways, and the worthy, utterly unworthy, sitting by the roadside or .at the gates of temples, seeking the alms of the more normally-living and prosperous. The reason for such a perversion, if hard to world.

Nationalist Chinese rule Manchuria was recognized Kiiarantecd at Yalta.) Given an Incli, Russia Takes a Mile Consider whnt happened on ettch of the Yalta agreements: perversion it be, Is not explain. In the ancient 5, in our modern world 1. Russia took over not only Outer Mongolia, but also Slnckiai northwestern Chinese province, well. 2. Russia took over southern Sak- alin and the Kurile islands because there was no torce to stop her. Even as late as early 1951, after -he Korean war began, Russia completed occupation of the southernmost Kuriles. only a few miles from Japan. This possession Is even now confirmed In the new U. S. peace treaty with Japan. 3. There was so much U. S. pressure to "bring the boys home" from the Pacific tn 1945 that any greater military assistance- to Nationalist Chirm would Utave been impossible. U. S. transport did move Nationalist Chinese trobps Into Manchuria, but ihey failed to hold. 4. With Manchuria lost to the Chinese Reds, there was no power other than Russia able to run the Manchurtaii railroads. There was no the corrupting influence of wealth, and of the spiritually undisciplined o.uest of it, with all it* ancient temptations, were widely and deeply In evidence.

And now just a )»tJe mor» steam has escaped. Railroads have been allowed t* raise their freight rates. They got permission from 'the ICC. the Interstate Commerce Commission. ||^ Since this, of course, raises th»™ cost of snipping floods, the shipperi will want to boost the price of their goods to pay for (lie tdde4 cost. But the retailer who buys from the shipper will get- suick uules* he 'can tack on this higher pric« to the goods which finally are sold lo you. You Get Stuck So you get stuck, the cousumef. You're the last buyer, That'* a simplified explanation of ho iv prices will as a result of the ICC ruling. But right away a couple of things come to mind: 1. I thought, we had a new prk« control law to keep prices down. 2. I thought OPS- Office of Pric» Stabilization—was supposed to nit on prices. 3. How come, if *e have OPS, the ICC can do something which will let prices go up? OPS has absolutely no control over anything done, by the ICO which is a long-established agency whose job Is deciding what freight rates ought to be. And the price control law pastel by Congress fl a t ly sa Id the law does not apply to ICC, When the railroads asked ICG't permission to i-ais* freight rate4, ICC called hearings to let *heir_ railroads explain why they neede<M an Increase. OPS at the Hearlngt OPS officals went to the hearing! and told the members of ICC what the effect on inflation and living costs would be if freight rate* went P- But they didn't, since they couldn't, attempt to tell ICC what fco do. So the latter wasn't working In silver, and the poor for shoes. But the glorification of poverty can be carried to )ust as gross an extreme. Restrictions, self - denials, and disciplines, often stern and unyielding, -inevitable and necessary only as they lay the foundation Cor the positive virtues, actions, and ideals that enrich man's life as he discovers the nature of true prosperity and abundance, and the meaning of what, ideally, .we have called the "commonweal." The parable the successful the day when it approved an Increase of nine per cent In the. east for the roads and aix per cent In the south and west. Since the ICC has to b« fair to railroads, the ICC members decided on permitting the freight increas* for these reasons: This country needs to keep their railroads in good running shape to carry goods; there's an emergency now; the railroads are spending, and will spend, a lot of money on much new equipment: a lot of this pair of spending has been encouraged ny the government and the ''shipping that Jesus told of fanner (Luke 12: other power in the area hi position 16-21) is good and important read- to occupy the vacuum, holding and ing for every successful man, farmer or otherwise, of torlay find of every day. His success was not foolish, but WRS foolish in his success. His mistakes, as Jesus aaid, was that he 1 lived only for himself and was not rich toward God. A vital question that we might well ask of ourselves is, "How rich are we toward God?" The answer to that would tell both how strong and how weak we are, and It might snake 'us more yealoiis and less boastful. the ports of Port Arthur and Dalren. Today's critic* of the Yalta agreement blame, the loss of Nationalist China and even the Korean war on the concessions made to Stalin by Koosevelt In this 1945 agreement. That Is probably as much of an over-statement as tlie contention by defenders of YalU that it was a good agreement, If only the Russians had lived up to Its terms. Any fair- minded appraisal must conclude that the truth lies somewhere between these extremes. IN HOLLYWOOD RT ERSKINR JOHNSON NEA Staff Correspondent HOLLYWOOD - (NEA)—Now I know Matgarct.
