About a year ago the FCC let loose a blast ugainst radio's give-away shows, saying some are virtual lotteries and probably ought to be barred from the air. A« inquiry was begun and it produced many conflicting ideas. But before the FCC could sift these notions, it had to turn full attention to television'* growing pains. Now the asr- «ncy seems too busy to gel back to the give-away problem, so radio's biggest drawing card looks safe for a long while. Safe, anyway, until some show takes up Fred Allen's suggestion that a prizewinner be left alone with a shovel for half an hour, in the gold vaults at Fort Knox, Ky. How Much Loyalty Should Lawmaker Offer His Party How much parly regularity should an intelligent lawmaker in Congress be expected to demonstrate? If he goes down the line for his parly 100 per cent, critics may refer to him contemptuously as a "rubber stamp." On the other hand, if he pursues a wholly independent course lie opens bimself to charges of party disloyalty. Is there any middle path that migbt permit him to recognize the realities of politics and still show some free-thinking statesmanship? It is the fashion in some circles to dismiss party programs and platforms as worthless. Undoubtedly they have -" been on many occasions. But that doesn't mean they always are—or should be. When the people elect a President or • a Congress, they are voting for some sort of program, even if only vaguely. True, they often seem to pick a President because they trust him as a man, but implicit in such a choice is a belief he will produce a satisfactory program. Political parties developed not merely to give the people a choice among men but clear alternatives in national policy. If a party means anything, it must b» devoted to the attempt to carry out the policies it stands for. Therefore, it seems entirely filling that a definite measure of party regularity should lie required of a lawmaker. How else can a President or a group of party leaders translate programs inlo law? To achieve results, party chieftains naturally need a working majority in Congress. A President is stymied if the opposition holds the edge. The opposition then will try to enact its own program over his objections. But if a President does have parly numbers in his favor he can enact his policies so lonx as his party members in Congress remain loyal. As we have suggested, the question is how much loyalty they should offer. The best plan we have seen for drawing the line on party regularity is this: Lei a party caucus decide what five or six proposals are crucial lo the execution of ils program. The leaders then would indicate that these "must" ilenis and these alone were to he regarded as a test of party loyalty. Failure to support them would place s lawmaker in peril of losing patronage snd other parly favors. Other pianks in the platform Die congressman could support or oppose, as he wished. And he would likewise be a free agent in all lawmaking beyond Ihe limits of his party's expressed program. His chief guides in that area would be his general political bent, his wisdom, his integrity and his special inleresls. This system would tend lo balance political responsibility against personal responsibility, and perhaps to make our VIEWS OF OTHERS Currency Crisis — Basic Remedy The seriousness of the British dollar crisis and Us importance to the United States are boUi sharply illustrated in t*c statement which Britain's economic czar. Sir Stafford Cripps, has just made In the House of Commons. Britain's dollar supply Is so low thai the British will be forced to suspend until September all purchues not now provided for by Marshall Plan a.ld, American producers, with a. business recession on their hands at home, are thus facing further low, ot marketi. That is only the simplest, clearest, and rnoet immediate effect of Britain's dollar shortage. Other effects might become visible should this situation worsen, However, there is plenty ol tvirtence that basic deterioration will not go unchallenged. Can America offer Britain any help that will be more thtji temporary? Can Americans take steps to uckle the world dollar .shortage in a fundamental way? How can they prevail on British and other European producers to lower prices so as to compete more successfully for dollar markets? It Is axiomatic that If British workers would [Mroduce more for the same wages, Britain could make this stronger bid for world trade. But in Britain—as in many countries—workers are sus- plcloua o/ this approach. The need for still more austerity (plain doing .without) among British consumer* may argue the need for harder work. But it dors not offer positive inducements U) work hairier alter & full decade ot lUuggie near subsistence level*. There remains a feasible and fundamental approach to the entire problem. That is a gcneraJ realignment of currency values, based on an adjustment between dollar and pound. Sir Stafford Cripp* has said the pound will not be devalued, Bui never "15 a long time, and cccn "not" is a strong word. The British insistence on keeping the pound at Us present Level is explained partiy~by Britain's position as banker for the "sterling area." Then, too, a cut tn the pound would make all imports into Britain, not only from the United States but other countries, higher in price for the British consumer. But to speaK thus of the matter is to ignore trie possibilities ot an all-round readjustment m currency values, steps toward which could be initiated by (he United States if Washington were prepared to provide emergency financial supports to countries willing to cooperate. It is altogether possible that explorations toward this end are even now under way. Such a program might welt Uke months to carry through. U ivj^ht require some education of public opinion both in Britain aud the United States. But u, wouEd promise what no stopgap loan can promise. For it would be a move toward freer and more normal trading methods the world over, in which price levels in one trading area would automatically a [feet those in another, and presumably before (he disparity between them hari eaten into the very jonndationa of world currency relationships. —CHRISTIAN* SCIENCE MONITOR.
