No Private Affair In the midst of Congress' debate of the proposed loan to Greece and Turkey there "has been revealed the almost incredible story-bobind-Uii-story of this country's §500,000,000 lomi to China in 19J2. Peter Edson, the NJJA Service Washington correspondcnv; who unearthed the story, could scarcely have picked a timelier moment to write it For it piovides a perfect objcc 1 . lesson in the unsound use of public .funds. T^lie pin pose of the Chinese loan * l^s jpiaise-worthy. Here was a brave, t bele&ueied ally fighting in the com- VjljPyCause. The fight was going badly, •ro^*3JuiVa lacked -food, clothing, and an* aiJihiflance of modern war equipment She also needed money to support a tottering financial strucluvi and ifitain her entity.: i It was to' America's advAnlage, natiaalh, to keep China stroilg and fighting But because of the Jap blockade the material requirements' could not be supplied. As Mr. Edsou says, "It was impossible to ship her anything but love and credit." Details of this necessary transaction were vague. Generalissimo Cliiang Kai-shek asked for the loan bul wouldn't discuss how it was to ile used until it was granted. President Roosevelt got congressional authorization to ; make the loan, then ho and Harry Hopkins'.handled the deal themselves, with a later assist from Movj>-enlhau, then secretary of the treasury. China's _ Foreign Minister T. V. Soong listed seven brond for which the money might be spent. And the money was forthcoming. Then; were .no strings attached. Discussion of repayment was deferred until after the ' war. The upshot was that nine-tenths of this half billion went into a financial Juggling act which was supposed lo stabilize Chinese currency and retard inflation. It didn't work. The remaining tenth did go for consumer go K'S that China desperately needed. In all, China received some three .billion dollars in assorted aid from the U. S. China stayed in the war. She deserved our help and got it But did she use that help to the best advantage. Where is China today? and where rtrc the three billion dollars? Mr. Truman asks for $400,000,000 for Greece and Turkey. Generalissimo Chiang wants another $500,000,000, already earmarked for China but not' delivered. The purpose of these loans is praiseworthy, too . Greece and China are former brave rjlies. Their peopl" are in need, and their governments are .insecure. The people are ripo fo , an . imposed totalitarian rule of those governments fall , f Mightn't it be well this time, how- .^evcr, to mix some crass, hard-headed as methods, .with idealism? The should tell its citizens. who arc the source of its billions how those billions will be spent. It should insist on assurances from debtor nations that those billions will be used wisely and for the greatest good. Tlie embers of Congress can and should rend Mr. Edsou's story and ponder its moral—that in an ora of even nominal democracy, the spending of public money is not the private affair of government officials, VIEWS OF OTHERS Chance For Arkansas Cities The Arkansas legislature, at its recent J>C5- slon, passed a law. or perhaps It would be more accurate. lo say amemlod a;> e.xisl Ing lav.. which allows cities of 2.000 or more population to vote on whether they want n city manager form of tfovernmrnl. » The law inny have been given only passing attention by the casual newspaper redder, but it ran be one of (be most sisniltaml official acts of lh<! 1917 General Assembly. Thai depends upon two lhini;si the pllicieney of city adniln- islrallons mid tin? inlei-psl iho Inxpuy.'rs have In their local government. Returning war veterans have been displaying commendable interest in city ijomnment in virtually all slate. We have seen that In- lerest. followed by action, brought to HglH In Arkansas. And, unless all signs fail, more "surprises" are due. The t;ui!l is individual, (hat is, personal, In many Instances where political machines have hren running rlty ndminislr.ilions. mil It is loo often overlooked that the system has been Ihe real cause of the collapse of'demit government. It i.s tine (hot no .sy.slom, or plan, c:m guarantee I'lxui government for a community. Tliat is trite ( ,f course, but IJi c belief that merely changing Ihe city government form will bring liniiulor and more prosperous days has been the reason for Ihe very few instances in winch Ihe voters have repudiated (lie city manager form ol government alter having experimented with It. The professional politicians don't overlook many bets. Eternal vigilance- is as much Ihe price of good government as it is the price ol peace. Good cify government is UK much a matter of wisely bundling Ihe taxpayers' money as It Is giving the services the public demand';. Ton many cooks spoil the broth. Opponents of tli-j city malinger form of fiiirerninciil drag out the old ilemngouic argument thai it concentrates too much power in a few men. nut these- same critics overlook the obvious fact that it also concentrates the responsibility. There arc fifl-l cities operating under the city manager form of government in this country today, and the record plainly shows Hint they wore able lo face the buulrns of Hie war year's far belter than some of those slill sticking to tlie archiac nldcnuanlc form.

' Lewis Demand for Using 'Fine' to Aid Miners Fails to Make Sense; UMW Treasury Is Bulging HVT»T7TT?T>l^r*n,r>».- . . *^ (ABK.J- COURlgK WEW8 'Behold My Handiwork! PRIPAY, APRIL 11, 1047 1'KTETt EDSON NEA Washington Corresponilrnt WASHINGTON, April 11. (NBA) —John L. Lewis's loiiU-moiilliMl thai the $700.000 line cvlcd ngninst ni s unilcil Mine Yorkers' union be revoked and glv- n to the fnmllics of tliu Ccnlrnlin lisnsler victims doesiu nmke sense. Consider Hie record. Tdlliif; in n jvew York bank are ivor $la million earmarked by (he jorcrmnciil us n welfare and re- Ircnient Innd belonging ID the ini- lers. Tliis money has been accinn- iliUcd in Ihe lasl 10 months from he rive-cent.s-a-lon royally paid )y the coal mine owners, as l>ro- ided in Ihe Kriig-LewU contract igned Insl May 29. The contract specified that th 1 ; .lui UYjuJd be adrr.mistereri bv llirec istce.s--one named by the "wiUU. tie named by the government, Co;il lines Administration, the Uiird to e agreed on by lh c other Iwo. I'm- six months nothing was done bout selling up.this |)o.i»ci of trns- cc.s lo nrltninisiiT Hie fund and de- idc how benefits and pensions be paid. The board isn't nnctionincT yet. uee. SO Lewis did noti'iy lhc Sovernmeiu that on June 19 the ntertiatioiial Executive Board ol he UMW had met and designated ilm ns Iruslce for the union. Why his six months' delay in notifira- ion has never been explained. Anyway. In January interim- Hec- etary j. A. Krug named Coal Mines Administrator Norman II. Collisson us- trustee for the govcm- irnt until siich time as the mines hould be returned to private own- rship. At, the end 0[ February ' Lewis eut CollissGii a list of 11 names who would be acceptable to Iho mine workers as the third trustee. In March the government selected from this list, the name of Thomas E. Murray. Neu- York lawyer and prominent Catholic layman, as first choice for (lip Ihird trustee. Murray has not indicated whether he will accept, but he is expected in Washington this week to discuss the matter. FAILURE OP LEWIS TO GKT GOING The purpose for which HUs welfare fund was created Is to make payments to miners nncl their dependents and survivors for wage loss resulting from sickness, permanent disability, relirement. or death, it was intended to cover jusl such situations n .5 the Ccntralln explosion. But the survivors of that catastrophe and the dependents ol- those who died In it will get no immediate benefit from the S'O million because Ihe fund isn't working. There is. of course, a (jueslion of whether Ihis royalty payment and the resulting welfare fund will b? continued ill the new contract which Lewis and the coal operators must work oul- lo take effect after June 30. In the meantime, j Congress miyht pass a labor reform ' bill which would outlaw royalty payments and rognlute the administration or welfare funtls. As of todny, however, there is no law which prohibits such activities, ancl the only thing which has held up ns c of the millions now held in Irust by the government has been the failure of John L. Lewis lo get going. Lewis can acl fust enough when ; it is lo his advantage lo do so. By seizing upon collisson's offer to keep closed all mines not found safe by rcinspecllon, Lewis in effect called upon the government to continue indefinitely tlie six- day period nr mourning. This is one way Of shulling Ihe mines at a lime when Lewis himself is restrained by court injunction from caJlnij? n strike. CKNTKAMA KXCCSE f'OK ItEVKiVGK Lewis's whole performance since the supreme Court decision against him has been an effort to get revenge. He has made the Centvalla disaster an excuse for taking out his spite on Secretary King for beating him in his effort to break Ills contract with the government. Lewis has thrived and capitalized on pet hatreds all through his career. His lasl great hale was against Franklin D. Roosevelt. But Ihis new hatred of Krug seems lo transcend even Ms hatred for Phil Murray of the CIO. In sharp contrast lo Lewis's violent vituperation Krug has kept his head and not been sucked into answering Lewis's slanders. By this action Krug has gained in stature where Lewis has lost. There can never be any denial of the fact that over the years John li. Lewis has performed renl j service and brought lasting bene- fils lo all American labor by hiK fights for higher pay and better hours and working conditions. But t lie has not been above mistakes. .His present com-F n of action seems' ' more of nn effort to cover up his own shortcomings than to correct any bad conditions for which others may be in any degree responsible.

If his Sunday School Lesson BV WILLIAM E. GILHOY, D. I>. Tlic kingdom \vn s the kingdom of Israel, with its first king, Saul, standing iiead and shoulders above the people, chosen to bo llicir leader and acclaimed as all the people shouted, "God save the King!" It seemed an auspicious moment In the life of Israel, but the accounts, probably composed into the book of I Samuel by a later hand, ore somewhat conflicting. The king is represented ns "God's anointed," and Samuel is represented as acting w lth divine ati- tliorily In anointing Saul. Hut in I Samuel 10:19. Samuel charges (Mat tlie demand of the people for a king Is a rejection of God. Ho ill-edicts with realistic sombcrncss the oppressions and extortions that the establishment of a king will bring upon Die people. The passage is very striking In view of the role that, with some notable exceptions, kings have played in history. And light is thrown upon the words of Samuel by what happened a little later, when the people • rebelled against the oppressions of Solomon, about to be rcimposed by his son, Reho- boam, and civil war rent the kingdom in twain, never to be reunited. •Why should there be so much interest In the political history and life of a numerically small people so long ago in a country no larger that one of the smaller American slates? The answer Is that the record Is a pan of the Bible, which has been truly called "Cod's Book for Man's Life.' So far as I am aware, there is nowhere else in all literature a record that in so compara-- lively small a compass sets forth with .such clearness and precision the -incidents and causes in the rise and fall of nations and the conditions that make for welfare, stability, peace, strife, tragedy, and decay. Moreover it is in the life of a comparatively primitive people emerging into statehood on a comparatively small scale that, one can observe move clearly and accurately than in a complex modern society the forces and laws that are at work and that have their effect on welfare or disaster. We can sec and study !n the kingdom of Israel, and in all the issues associated -with it, the precise elements that make for welfare or disaster today, obscured though th?y may be by all the accretions and developments that have multiplied our problems. We can do Ihis without tillering !he basic ' and essential conrlilions ' of their solution. We want to rend and study thcs£ lessons not merely with an eye" til what happened long ago, but with a real sense of what (hey may tell us about what is happening today. Their value and effect for us will be lost it we tlo not. rend them h>- th e light, or darkness, of our own '.imcs. 15 Years Ago In The National Junior Shakespeare nnrlncr held the..queen of trumps, he was practically assured of a trump (rick unless he led it. Now he was down to the heart, and the club, mid after some study he finally led the heart. You can sec what happened. Declarer played low from dummy. West won with the queen, and later declarer was able to take n heart finesse and make the contract. Had a club been opened, the contract automatically was doomed to defeat. Ells said he thought that the club was as good a lead as the heart, but. the (Hicen-ten- nine of clubs, against n six. bid, he might be able to, establish a trick that he would lose with the le-d. Elis said that tile really tough Part of all this wa s Hint if he hail simply followed the theory that it does not pay to lead away from a King, he would have had lo lead a club, but neither he nor any oilier expert believes in rules that begin with "never." BV FREDERICK C. OTIIMAN (United press Staff Correspondent) WASHINGTON, April 11.—Edgar L-. -Warreti called on Die nursa at Ihe Labor Department for an aspirin tablet. This indicated, lhat the director of conciliation was a, victim of his own strike-ending technique. .It also indicated that If the telephone strike Is not over by the time you read this essay on the trade secrets of a labor nibitfJb^ it will be soon. The boys can't take* the treatment much longer. Their eyes are red and their stomachs are rebelling. The arguments between the phone company representatives and the union chiefs are growing weaker, because they are running out of strength. The idea (said my man at Ihe labor .department) is to wear the Outliers down physically until they I are so weak they can see the advantages of a compromise. This r takes finesse. Keep 'em tired, but not too j lirc-d; uncomfortable, but not too uncomfortable, or they're likely to (jet sore and go home. Night after night the telephone negotiators have argued until nearly dawn. One evening they were allowed to go to bed along about 3 a.m. Hardly iiad they eased Into their pajamas before they got a call from Secretary of Labor Low is Schwellenbach—who is giving a hand—to get back to his office. They returned to the sheets at six the next morning; at 10 they were arguing again. The arguments proceeded in a number of rooms . at the department, where the chairs were soft, but not too soft. These seats were designed to make a man think, after the first couple of hours, that he. was suffering from a busted sacroiliac. There were' plenty of ash trays and matches on Uie tables. There's nothing like too many cigarettes !i<| turn n tired man's mouth inio Jr wad of scorched flannel, my informant said. The lights were a liltle too 'bright so as to give the eyes of Ihe negotiators the third dct-ree, delicately. -These gentlemen soon shed Iheir coals and loosened their- ties. Their stomachs cried for nourishment. Schwellenbach. Warren & Co., invariably were sympathetic. They'd send out for coffee and cloughmits, The coffee was cool, but not loo cool; the doughnuts not exactly soggy, but certainly not crisp. So I'd had my own lunch yesterday afternoon and was fccliiiff comfortable and well fed in the ante-room of the departmental auditorium where the long-lines negotiators were meeting. They'd had nothing to eat. When occasionally their door opened, the cigarett" smoke billowed out. Along about 2 p.m. they could stand it no lon"- er. 'A couple of assistant ccncilialors shagged downstairs to the cafeteria. They returned witii two trays, one loaded with coffee cups which had slopped over, the olheorj with slabs of apple pic. This piJP (according to a reliable witness) tasted vaguely of soap. My private reporter on the inner workings of strike settlement said this procedure was nothing unusual. There was only one trouble with it. The concil'intors suffered as much as the battlers. Their eyes were just as red, their stomachs just as npset. Tlie nurse gnve Warren his aspirin. Whetihcr it made him feel better was problematical. My man doubted it. Story Telling Club was organiz^d "t Ihe First Methodist church wich Mrs. L. .N.
