All Would Benefit if French Gave New Premier a Break The West can he gratified tliRl Rene PJeven is the new French premier. He Is probably the strongest niicldle-of-tlie- ronrl leader in France today. In his earlier premiership this year, Pleven exhibited more character and drive than any French prime minister has shown since World War-II. He marie « fih« impression during his hasty visit to tht United Staten. Pleven faces some thorny issues. Rearmament and its impact on the French economy, the revival of a German army as part of the European defense force, the granting and development of air bases for the United States, these top the list. ' In any realistic political framework, Pleven would he. judged and his regime Would stand or fall on how it meels • these key issues. But, unluckily, French cabinets in recent years have been collapsing over domestic o,uesUons which • often bear little or no relation lo the critical world scene. For the sake of Western solidarity in the building of effective defenses against Russia, it is 'to be hoped that henceforth the French people will gauge their leaders' performance more broadly. Taft Shows Statesmanship Senator Taft's support of the military part of the foreign aid program will undoubtedly go far to assure approval of arms assistance by Congress without major change. With the Russian threat in no real sense diminished, (his is a heartening development. Relaxation of Western rearmament is a prime Soviet goal right now. Taft apparently understands this and appreciates the risk involved in cutting military aid while Uussia still strikes an aggressive posture. And whether this be his intent or not, the fact is that'Taft's backing of full arms help to Kurope will to.nrl to cut the ground from under any who might charge that the senator sought to handicap his political rival. General Eisenhower, in carrying out his mission as European commander. Taft is apparently bent on seeing that Eisenhower gets eveiylhing he needs—at least from the United Slates. His move, represents a sober appraisal of the world situation. And if the 1952 campaign entered his thinking, he has also taken it fair-minded political approach. A Good Time Was Had by All like this year's, the Western power* might be persuaded to finance them. For there's good reason to believe we got more propaganda advantage out of the affair (han the Russians did. Western authorities estimate that some 300,000 Communist-directed youngsters defied their masters and sneaked across Berlin's zonal boundaries into West Berlin. They sampled Western food, window-shopped, and saw all the other signs and sights of life in the free, world. Only the most plaiwrate Kerl roadblocks finally reduced this curious' flow- to a trickle. The whole spectacle must have been pretty dismuvlng to the Kremlin. And unless the Reds resort to extremes to isolate the youths who strayed into forbidden territory, the kids back home are going to KOt » real earful. Early Helped Make History Stephen T. Early, press secretary to President Roosevelt and later to President Truman, was n public servant of wisdom and high devotion. He was no ordinary press aj(ent, but a thoughtful counselor and an experienced workman' who knew how to get things accomplished. More recently, he won a Distinguished Service Medal for his part in unifying the armed services while he was with the Defense Department. Early's place in the turbulent history of the last two decades is assured. Views of Others With Wrench in Hand The Kremlin lin.s sprung another surprise by announcing (hat a Soviet delegation will attend the Japanese treaty conference at San Francisco (n Sept«mb«r. Do Messrs.,Gromyko & Co. conic with monkey- wrenches In hniKl, tir beating a quite astonishing fountain pen wiUi which lo sl^n the treaty? The odds, of irniirse, are Ml in favor of tlie monkeywrench hypothesis. The Russians have cnn- sLstently denounced the Japanese treaty, the method of bilateral consultation by which LI wtu written* and the exclusion of Communist Cliin* from the negotiations. I wonkd )« a violent reversal of policy if, after all (lite, they now signed. The more reasonable assumption is that (hey are coming lo San Francisco In order to sound off, lo disrupt the conference If possible, to rxplcrit, ns far as they can the dlMalisfarticm with the treaty expressed by the Philippines, India ami some other Asiatic countries. This wan an opportunity freely accorded to the Kremlin by the United States mid others who have taken part in the treaty-making process. At every stage the West took pains to consult, the Russians, though refusing lo accept- Soviet dictation. Because it was our policy to intake peace with Japan jointly If possible, but severally if necrsAary, Moscow had to be Invited to attend at San Francisco If she wished. Her attendance need not mean disruption of the conference If the treaty process lin* been laid on R sound foundation. There have been months of negotiation among the non-Soviet powers, with ample opportunity to adjust differences over the treaty. Even now the tentative draft Is undergoing Alteration to meet objections of some prospective signers. If the non-Soviet world maintains a solid front, —and solidarity is now more than ever necessary —the net result of any Grotnyko fireworks may be to dramatize the Isolation of Soviet policy. To that end the 'IWsl must go to Ihc conference with a treaty which the overwhelming majority of nations can sipn. —ST.

Stabilization officials in Washington aren't, sure yet. Though the act hns been on the books tor -several weeks, price and wage official,*; who have to write the regulations for administration of the' new law aren't] certain thai they have uncovered all the gimmick.s that even the congressional authors cton't know arc there. Prize example is the famous amendment in t red need by Sen, Homer Oapchart of Indiana, it wn-s pawcrf flt 3 am. when none of (he lawmakers could po.v>in)y have been ! quite sure what he was doing, This Is the new paragraph 4 of sub-section d nf Section 407. Defence Production Ac. l of. 1950, If you must have the citation. The language Itself is too difficult to follow. What stabilization officials now think the Cnprthnrt amendment means i- 1 ? that the .government can't frec7r any price on any manufactured item until the manufacturer has ndded in all increases in costs - -----wii^es, materials, tnxe.s, rent, advertising, transportation, etc.—prior to July 26, 1951. Furthermore, every seller must, be given his customary mark-up, before the new ceiling price Is sl?ppcd on. Now the bis Joker In this, as It's understood today. Is that it will Increase the price of practically everything that the farmer buys, without increasing by one cent the prire.s of the thfnHS farmers sell. The reason lor this is that agri-j Auditing Ts Monumental Job cultural commmlities are spccificat- i Take another problem. There are f "" n lhc * cnpressmen for the ly exempted from the Capehart amendment. Wonder Why Farmers Uke It Why the farm bloc and the livestock, stale congressmen went for the Capehart amendment in Jitich a big way is still something of a mystery. There is one report that a trade wa$ involved. Live-stock raisers wanted to get rid of the August and October roll-backs on meat prices. The reported deal was that the farm bloc would .support. the CapeharL amendment In ex- j change for : trial amendment, of Rep, Tom Fneate of ! Virginia, which killed the roll-backs on beet. Tf that's the way it was. only the beef boys benefited. Other farm groups will take a beating, it. will adversely affect the parity ratio, Rut in a way. it will be only simple jus tire (or the farm organization leaders who fought so hard against all forms of price and wage controls, From the .standpoint of the gov- eminent, bureaucrats who have to administer and enforce the Capehart amendment, it's almost impossible. For instance, the last sentence of the Capehart amendment provides that manufacturers may include all costs in determining their new nvrr ,300,000 manufacturing firms in the United State, 1 ;. Suppose they all applied for price increases under the Capehart amendment, the complicated cost accounting on each application could be checked in three days, which would be fast work. It would take 3000 auditors a year to complete the job. As to the type of computation involved, take the case of a corset manufacturer who has been making this item of hardware at $10. Suppose tie puts In a claim that his costs have increased by $2, These co-st.s would have to hft closely audited, or else the manufacturer's word fcr it would have to be taken i on some super-West Point honor j system. If the corset-maker just Increased his advertising appropriation, that would have to be considered as an extra cost. Anyway, assume that the firm had been making 30 per cent profit, on its foundations. Thirty per cent markup on $10 U $3. But on J12 it would be $3.60. Bingo! the guy gets to make more profit. And this constitutes one of the most falsiest ways ever devised" to control inflation. r Economic Stabilisation Administrator Eric Johnston ran try bo administer tough or loose. HE could say it's Impossible to administer, and so decontrol everything. Or he could filibuster the act till It ex- late. Tlie twojiccnr together quite often. The fact that so many have achieved success in .life in spite nf one or both of these defects prove?-;. however, that the handicap need not stand in the way of a full and satisfactory life, Trjese conditions fall in the croup of what are called congenital defects. A person Is born with them and the cause has therefore been operating before birth. It- seems likely that they sre the result of some Injury before birth rather than being truly hereditary. The studies which show that German measles In the mother during the first thrpe months of preennnry nredisposes *o congenital defects alreadv throw some lieht. on how this kind of tiling ronld work- It Is naturally a shock lo the nar- *>nts to havn a child horn with aj harel'n or cl"ft nalatc. .

"Well, he also says he wouldn't Jilff a hand to pull Jumbo out of a snowdrift, but if Snuffy is In love with the big bum he would like to help her along with her romance. "'I figure that overgrown snob Is looking down his nose at her,' he tells me. 'The problem Is to get her ^ tip to his social level.' *J| "So Uncle Mnnchausen site down and makes that little Spaniel a set of four-stilts on wheels. As I said, he's a real inventor. Snuffy got the idea real quick. It dfYln't take her long to learn to skate, but it was days before she could tie the straps on by herself. All this time big dumb Jumbo watches and wonders. "Finally. Snuffy is ready. She put* on h er st il ts an d skates over bo Jumbo, yelping with love, she's AS tall as he. is at last! "But Jumbo just growls and bats her over with his paws. Then ha unchews her stilt--?, put them on himself, and chews .the straps on tight. At first he kerf lops all over the barnyard. But he finally gets the wheels rolling just as Uncle Munchausen comes up, leading the cow from the pasture. "Jumbo gives a bark of delight. At last he is as tall as Tickly! He comes skating up to her, and she lets go with a kick that breaks two of" his stilts. "Uncle Munchausen is so riJed he goes over, and cuffs Jumbo. Poor lovesick Snuffy can't stand that so she runs up and bites Uncle Mun- chausen on the lee. Then "he Jerks the four .stilts off Jumbo and throws j them at Tickly, hitting her in the^ flank. of complexes, especially excessive l "Darn love,'* he says.

He could do this the President may determine Lo^be mi r en sen a hie and excessive." There Is no definition of what constitutes an "excessive" cost. If you were Price Administrator Michael V. DISaile or one of his law- yens, how would you write a definition of an excessive cost? by issuing no regulations, thus trying lo hold the line. His present intentions are to try to administer the law Lough. He'll try to issue orders on an tndvustry-by-industry basis. This will make administration as simple as possible and to make the best of a bad bargain.
