Defense Program Need Not Stymie Public Housing Plan In 1949, Congress enacted a dousing law which called for construction of 810,000 public dwelling units over « six- year period. It waa the biggest boost ever given public housing in the United States. Private builders saw it a* a heavy blow to their activities, while advocates of subsidized housing for low-income families hailed it as a great advance. The act authorized erection of 135,000 units in any one calendar year, but prescribed that this could be raised to 200,000 or lowered to 50,000, depending on economic conditions. A» it turns out, all these figures have been purely academic up to now. During the two-year span since enactment, only 2800 dwelling units have been completed. Another 1)2,500 have been started. Most of these "starts" are relatively recent. After lagging around the 3000- mark in April and May, the total jumped to 42,300 in June. Public housing officials put on speed in fear Congress would shut off the program entirely during the defense emergency. The Korean war and its broad effects on the whole economy can fairly be blamed for most of the problems that have descended upon the program. But it is evident that even before that event tilt* renewed public housing effort was incredibly slow in getting under way. A complete shutdown is not. however, a likely prospect at this time. The Administration asked that 75.000 units be authorized for the next \'l months, ar.d Congress seuniit willing to approve 50,01)0 of that total. '• Holding the figure to the minimum called for by the 191!) law looks like a wise decision. Credit controls and malaria's restrictions have been placed upon private construction to limit the amount of building. Fairness dictates that definite checks he placed also on public housing. Vet to throttle the program completely would hardly be right, in view of the popular intent as expressed in the 19 10 law. Thanks to the Korean \vav and the public houseis' slow beginning, private builders have been able to rejoice in the last two years that little government competition has developed. They cannot expect their good fortune to continue indefinitely. It' the builders' case against any public housing^l all is a good one, they must somehow sell it to the people and their representatives in Washington. This they have not yet been able to do. Even so staunch a champion of free enterprise as Senator Taft lent his name to the 1040 public housing provisions. Until Congress and '.he people modify their views, thos« featur** miut tx carried out. The demands of defense are » legitimate interference with that program. But those demands must not h« exaggerated to cloak other purposes. By the same token, no unreasonable limits ought lo he fixed upon private builders in this emergency to strengthen the case for "more public housing." We Must Foil Kremlin's Plan To Wreck San Francisco Par With commendable speed the United States acted to spike at the start Russia's obvious plan to wreck the Japanese treaty at San Francisco. The Kremlin has formal notice that the coming meeting is a final conference for the "concluding" and signing of the pact. Neither we nor any major power associated with the treaty draft ing intend at this sUxe to allow the Russians to re-open negotiations on detailed terms. This is admirable resolve, lint we must lay careful plans to meet every trick Moscow may conceive. \Ve must assure not only that the Soviet Union dues not wreck the treaty but that it does not so twist events.lit San Francisco as to gain an important propaganda victory. Almost certainly Russia will protest tliafc it is being out without a hearing. This, of course, is not the case: John Foster Dulles had three meetings with Jacob Malik on the progress of negotiations. It was Malik who broke off the talks. Karlicr, the Ktissians repeatedly had hamstrung all efforts to begin framing a treaty. They did not lake part because they did not want a pact lo be ,drawn. \V« should be ready at San Francisco with the whole history of Russia's relation to Japanese treaty discussions, from the moment World War II ended. And we should not hesilate to remind the world that Moscow joined the war against Japan exactly one week before it ended. Views of Others America Gets Out Of Dangerous Pact Graven Image The United States is wise lo wash its hands, at least for the lime being, ol the miscalled treaty op freedom of Information which has been de- baled for several years before the united NnUons Economic. *nd Social Council. A* now dratted, Hie proposed treaty would do more harm lhaii good to the cause It puri>orls to serve. When discussion of such a treaty began American delegate* took an enthusiastic part. They hoped the council and olher parls of the United Natiotii machinery fpr]1jlUrnational co-operatlou might help lower barriers against frpe interchange of information amon^ nations and peoples. They thought that a treaty setting forth some of the fundamental freedoms of expression, which we lake for granted In this country, might be accepted by enough countries to do some real food. Some of the newspaper editors in America, men constantly on the alert for any nl- (nck.s on the freedoms that now exist, took part hi the treaty discussions, They included such men UK Erwin Canhftin of the Christian Science Monitor and Carroll Binder ol ihe Minneapolis Tribune. They did their best to steer the treaty negotiations into useful chant)els. But the nations which believe In sxippre^mg Information they do not like, and hi strict control of all persons and agencies for the dissemination of news, outvoted the nations which believe us \ve do. Unfortunately all nations which want a controlled press are not behind the Iron Curtain. The further the discussions, proceedrd. thi» plnlner U became thai the outcome would uc R treaty to sanction government control oC information, rather lhan guarantee freedoms.

Tlfe difference is that some- hing can be done about the situa- ion at the time of adoption; the importance of careful adoption jractices has been demonstrated nany times by both happy and nn- lappy results. A true story (with Hie circum- >(atices changed so that there is no possibility of Identification) shows what can go wrong unless adoption carefully worked out in advance. Mr. 'and Mrs. A., with limited income, already had three children and were expecting another. They decided that when the expected child was born they would place it imnied Lately for adoption and tell their relatives and friends (hat the child had died at birth. They carried out their plan through an attorney, but three months later the same attorney phoned them to say that they must take back the child because the adopting parents had just taken the child to a pediatrician who had found, that the child was feeble-minded. In this case, too hasty and in- considered action caused great difficulty and pain of mind to both the natural and adopting parents, and the child was not helped because it had to be placed in an Institution anyway, where It should have gone in the first place. Many other examples of undesirable adoptions are in the files of welfare agencies throughout the country.

There are also many nfants prived of children who are normal family life reason or another and who need R desirable home. The prob- em is to match the adoptive parents and ihe adopted children so hat both sides may receive a good break towards happiness, content- nent and health. To do this successfully is no easy task, it requires the understanding of the prospective adoptive parents, study of their backgronuds and interests, and investigation of the parentage and mental and physical health of the prospective gSveably stupid for not having taken advantage of it.
