In Mr. Byrnes' plan there is no provision for making Germany a buffer state for western Kurope, either. There would beno more "/.ones" according to the proiK).scu treaty, which sets up H Commission of Control to conduct inspections ami investigations "in any and all parts of German territory." Thus the Secretary of State has revived a plan for Germany which, during thc war, was generally agreed to be prudent and necessary. He hns made a wise provision for Germany's place with due regard for thc United Nations as well as for the Big Four. Unveiling a Foreign Policy Thanks to Secretary of State Byrnes, it can no longer be said that the United States has no foreign policy. By presenting his proposed four-power German disarmament treaty to the foreign ministers' conference in Paris, Mr. Byrnes finally put American statesmanship in the van of America's material and moral strength. Now, better than at any time since the war ended, the world can see where this country is going and how it proposes to get there. Mr. Byrnes' proposal seemed to put an end to his former role of conciliator. He took a positive and courageous step which, though it will 'be opposed jit home and abroad, at least commits the United States to a definite policy. This alliance would reverse a seemingly growing trend in this country to discount Germany's menace as a repeated offender against world peace. America takes thc lead in asking that the powers which conquered the Nazis now assume the heavy and serious responsibility of a quarter-century's watchfulness over the people who fo.s- tereri Bismarck and Wilhelm and Hitler. Isolation is not dead in America, and an agreement to police Germany for 25-years would not be greeted by unanimous cheers. But Mr. Byrnes has taken steps to avoid the mistakes whereby Woodrow Wilson lost the country's (and the Senate's) support for the League of Nations. He has had the counsel of two influential members, one : -Dermjcrat ; and one Republican, of the Senate ^Foreign Relations Committee. These senators have accompanied him to Paris in an obvious demonstration, of their support. . Mr. .Byrnes* proposal has also, in ; effect, forced Russia to present positive proof of her good intentions in Europe. Russia's answer should be u clear indication of whether thc Kremlin really wants its recent enemy rendered militarily impotent for a genera- tiontrx 'come, 'bi- whether its plan is : for a coinmuimed Germany to take its Balkanized place among the friendly - governments which now serve as buffers to Russia's western boundaries. At the same time, Mr. Byrnes gives a definite, if limited, answer to Mr. Government at Home In Missouri the oilier day a resolution was cf .creel in thc Legislature which sounds Ilk 3 a I'.enuluo dccit'.vBllon of Imlcpw'ili'in-.c Irom Washington. Under It. President Truman' home state would serve notice on Congress ns follows: Missouri now tukcs thc lend among thc states helping lo solve the federal debt crisis and . . . will frefrain from demanding further grants irom Congress. That Is really revolutionary! H may appear much less drastic than Ihc Declaration of mo, but. If adopted, it would express much the same spirit. For, in recent years, the movement to give Washington power—in exchange for federal grants—has none so far that any move to reverse the liend requires courage mid independence. There arc i;aoi\ reasons for some extensions of Federal power and the Constitution Itself that certain tilings can be done better by the Federal Government. But whe nthe balance lias swung so far and fast toward cen- tagcs of local government. It is time to put the Irallznlion, It is lime to emphasize the nclvnn- burden of proof on every proposal for more controls—batted with more Federal tax money— from Washington. We like the way one governor brings the responsibility right home to the local communities. Some of the criticism of bureaucracy i in Washington is llself "buck-passing." If cities and States will "do lor themselves," Federal bureaucracy won't get many openings. The line where Federal service should take over from local government should be determined prnijinaltcnlly by experience. For a fair lest, thc citizens musi be amorcd against the temptations of Federal grniils—which often seem like glfls. The vei-y factors of bigness and remoteness from thc taxpayers' eye ollen cause Federal services to cost more than if performed by state government. The best part ot Hie Missouri resolution is its promise lo ask for no more Federal money. Too often we hear advocates of states' rights inveighing against Federal bureaucracy one day and running to Washington the next to get u hand-out, when Lincoln said, "In all that the people can individually do as well for themselves, the Government, should not interfere." he gave us a good cotnrnon-sense teal to j apply to nil extensions of governmental services] If it is something essential 'and individuals cannot do it. thc next question Is whether local government can do it as well as national. If so. thr local government should do it—and pay for it If thc people go to Washington for the money, then Washington will "interfere." —CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR. **iN HOLLYWOOD;. BY ERSKINK JOHNSON , SU(f Correspondent HOLLYWOOD, May 6. <NEA> — We're Just back from our first postwar Hollywood junket lo Sacramento, Calif., for the world premiere or Republic's "In Old Sacramento." So— Head, my children, and you sliall hear Of the twilight ride of Baby dear. "Baby" is Constance Moore, and the mac! c the ride with co-star Bill Elliott In an open stagecoach down the main street O f Sacramento, taking bows as thousands of citizens cheered. Ylp-e-e-e! We 1 went along only as an observer, but we wound up as Connie's hoop-skirt holder-downer. In fact, It might have been very embarrassing if we hadn't come '•> her rescue. She was wearing a hoop-skirted costume from the picture. The stagecoach seats were narrow. Connit had to sit sideways. The hoop skirt iJoppctt up the very first time she sat down. A little boy with red hair and an autograph book clutched in hi* hand, standing beside the coach gave a wolf whistle. "Will someone please hold Bauy's skirt down?" Connie asked, red- faced. So we took the job. EIGHT <;LASSES FOR "BABY" Sacramento was really hot—100 degrees even—ns Connie and Bill nadc a' tour of the town earlier in the day. Baby drank eight glas- ies of ice water. Everybody drank ice- water. It was rugged going. But no one- thought of letting down th c local townspeople.

(UP)—Cake? made from sunflowers may soon provide a tasty dessert, predicts Miss Roycne Frantz. home economist for the University of Illinois. A new flour made from the seed :ood-wlll emissaries, left the citizens bordering on hysteria. The two stars visited Sutler's Fort and the state capltol build- ins, broke broad with city officials it Chamber of Commerce luncheons and dinners, and painted a big cast-iron California bear at the entrance to the state fair-grounds. This was thc neatest trick of the trip. The painted thc bear without using any paint. It was the fair press agent's idea. lilll climbed aboard the bear, paint brush In hand, and Connie leaned one the bear, paiut brush and empty paint can In hand. BILL IS A "NATIVE SON" Even Sacramento didn't realize that Bill Elliott Is practically a citizen of Sacramento who goes to Hollywood to work in Ihe movies. He spends much of his free time on a big ranch 35 miles from Sacramento. It's the Biir-bar-A, named after his n-year-old daughter. Barbara. , The photographers were present ngain when Sacramento gave Connie a live lamb named "Lucky Seven," in honor of her wool wedding anniversary wilh agent Johnny Ma.schio. The lamb went back 1 0 Hollywood with Connie on a Pacific airliner. Her four-year-old daughter. Gina, is now leading it around Beverly Hills on a leash. But the, lamb wasn't Comitc'r only present. "Every minule something arrives at my hotel room." she said. "Flowers, candy and..." "And sold nuggets?" we asked. "No nuggets," Connie said. Military authorities In the tropics discovered that ice cream and shower baths were the tw o liest, remedies for combat fatigue.

"That's just a rough guess," Mr. A GNES was talking to Mr. Newkirk in the dining room, and 3ebby knew as soon as she stepped inside the kitchen door that she was excited about something. She couldn't hear what she was saying, but her voice was gay and alive and lull of zest. Debby walked across the kitchen and stood in the doorway with her hands m her pockets. Mr. Newkirk was sitting at the head of the table, and Agnes was over beside the sideboard, rubbing its top with the palm of one hand and holding the mail-order catalog against her bosom with the other. The.door into Ellie's room was open. Mr. Newkirk's overcoat was unbuttoned, and there was a pencil and notebook on the table in front ot him. He stood up, and Agnes turned and saw her standing there. "Oh," she said, "did you two meet? This is my sister, Miss Weeks, Mr. Newkirk." He said, "How do you do?" Debby inclined her head slightly and said nothing. ;«Mr. Newkirk is a friend of Cfte's," Agnes explained, v -Debby nodded. ' -He'i an antique dealer," Agnes went on. .

"I want to bring a friend who knows more about antiques than I do around to see it before 1 make you n real offer. But it looks good lo me." "And look, Debby," Agnes said, holding out the mail-order catalog, "look at this complete dining room set, seven pieces for forly eight-fifty. Better looking than that stuff, 1 think. And it leaves us wi'.b S350. What do you think of thts i.i'S* i-ijkj- to^%k?" "Might be all righ'," Debby said cautiously. She paused. "Only if there's that much money in it, it might be better to deal with somebody we know we can trust." I won't liavo her bein my friends." Deliby's voice wns low and trembly. "P'raps I'll stop bein* rude to your friends when you stop bein' rude lo mine." Kllie's breathing was so loud you could have heard it out on the porch. "What do you mean, your friends?" "Any friend of the Wymans is a friend of mine," she said, her voice still lower. He en light his breath sharply. And he stood still, glowering nt her. "So you're sweet on that pain in the neck, arc you?** ' * * • J^EBBY'S hnnrls were clenched inside her pockets. "What you got against him?" sha asked. Ellie just slood still, looking at her with his mouth open, panting. "KIlie," said Agnes, "you gel back to bed."

Robert Gnrlnnd. president of thc Historical Society of Western Pennsylvania, points to the significance of this arrangement. Protestants will be reminded of the Biblical seven clays of the creation, Catholics of the seven hlll.s of Rome, and Jews of their golden number and the seven lights In their Holy of Holies. The Department of Agriculture says farm real estate prices arc now a.s much above prewar values as Ihe post-World War 1 prices were above prc-World War I values. In other words, there is now just as much Inflation In farm real estate as there was after the last war. The only redeeming feature In today's situation is that over half of the farms now changing hands are bought and sold fur cash. The 1920 crash in farm values ruined so many farmers because most of them bought on time nt Inflated .values, mortgaging themselves heavily into dcbl. Thc lotal ! farm mortgage debt actually declined during World War II. and cash deposits and savings in rural banks are at all-lime highs.

A loud thump came from he bedroom. Debby glanced at Mr. Newkirk, and he was looking straight into her face, soberly. She heard a noise at the bedroom door, and there was Ellic in his nightgown, bare-footed, leaning forward over his right arm which was still in its sling. "Ellie," Agnes shouted, "you get back into bod." Ellie was glaring at Debby. "Listen, you little squirt," he said huskily, "I ain't going to have you bein' rude to my guests in my own house." Mr. Newkirk jumped up and took Ellie's other arm. "Listen, Ellie, you've got to get back in bed. Don't worry about that business." He motioned with his head toward Debby.

She was saying it to Ellie and not to thc insurance man there, but it gave Ellie a chance to stop holding on, and that was all she wanted.
