(ARKJ COURUBiK NKW8 Meditation Fo* tince the world did not know God through wisdom,- it pleased God to save who believed.— I Cor, 1:21. Human wisdom docs not necessarily eri faith in God but enables one to better serve God. Higher Airline Fares ~The country's general feoinjr alioul prices today offers one interesting exception. It has to do with the 10 ]i?r cent rise in domestic airline fares. There has been a determined public show of buyer resistance along many lines. Government officials, from the president on down, have been urging price cuts. Yet along comes this government-inspired increase, and nobody squawks. ' The airlines had a rough time of it in 1946. In spite of statistics showing an improved safety record, a lot of people were frightened away by a series of spectacular accidents toward the close of the year. A lot more got disgusted with canceled and delayed flights, inadequate service, and sonic remnants of wartime discourtesy. T\VA had a pilot strike. As a result of all this, half the leading airlines lost money on the year. Several others made unimpressionable financial showings. The vaunted air age was in danger of a s)iarp setback, perhaps a disastrous one. There wasn't much left to do ox- cept charge more .money. . . ; The impetus of this price incre'a4e carve not from the airlines but from,a uov- ernment agency, the Civil Aeronautics I^oard. As a matter of fact, the two substantial money-makers opposed t':.c increase. Eventually they went along, probably at the prompting of self-interest as well as industry-interest. If they had refused to increase their fares, these two lines certainly would' have-received more business and made even more money. But perhaps they f9resa\v a day when they might have th,e field pretty much to themselves and run into troubles as parties to u monopoly whch they had not sought. - At any rate, the increase was approved and in record time. In contrast to the railroads, which have been seeking a" rate' increase for some months from the Interstate Commerce, the hike in air fares went through in less than a week. Considering the number of people who travel by air, the public indifference to the higher tariff was'quite remarkable. II was more remarkable V'len seen against the background of recent public resentments and apprehensions. The .airlines may count themselves fortunate that events have turned out as they did. ' Of course, air fares are still lower today than they were in 10-11 n v - passeriger • traffic in 1941 was loss than a quarter of what it is today. And today, a t i cns t temporarily, the airlines have lost one of the big sellinjr noiuU that might have increase traffic nven more. That was tho fact that, beftre the increase, it was cheaper to fly 011 long trips than lo go by Pullman, whi-i- one figured in lower berth, mca i s am( tips. I It remains to be seen whether there will be a change in the hiild public reception of higher flight rates, or whether these higher fares have reilly solvecl the domestic" carriers' financi'.) , IHoblems. In the latter connection it is interesting to note the great discrepancy between the 1946 financial . statements of Eastern Airlines anu ; i \V A« > Eastern showed a net profit for the year of more than §6,000,000. TWA's net loss exceeded §14,000000 r Less violent contrasts may he found between other leading lines. The money-making airlines hud to contend with the same public resentments and apprehensions as the heuvy losers. This suggests that a thorough restudy and revamping of operating methods by the losers might offer a better permanent remedy for financial ills than fare increases. VIEWS OF OTHERS Russia's Interests In response to questions raised by members of Congress, the Stale Department has told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee that the Greek-Turkish aid program Is not directed against "any legitimate Interests of the Soviet Union." The Slnte Department 'would have toccu just about ICO per cent assuring and almost completely effective in alllaylug apprehension if that world "Iceitbnatc" could have teen omitted. —ARKANSAS OAZETfTE. Way to Labor Peace In the field of |nlx>r relations, .surely a few truths should be held self-evident. A .strike Is an economic loss to all concerned, and should be Invoked only ru a last resort. There arc lew disputes over wages, hours or working conditions which can not be settled without recourse to force by management, and its own workers If the situation Is discussed with complete Integrity and understanding. Eliminate all of the Intemperate speeches, present the facls, and in most instances agreement can be reached. Similar reasoning is the basis of the recommendation made Monday by tiv; Research Policy Committee of the committee for Economic Development. Tills urges legislation creating a permanent management-labor council to work with a strengthened Federal Mediation Service. The council would have a dual function involving (l) a continuing study of the state of industrial relations throughout the corn-try, and (2) making collective bargaining really work. 'Neither strike nor strike vote would be permitted until bargaining and mediation had been fully Invoked. The CED report recognizes n fact patently ignored both In the Wagner Act nnri suggestions for its amendment. The committee warns that "legislation alone cim not make collective bargaining work," that unions and management must "bring sanity, moderation mid tolerance to the bargaining table." These factors 109 olten have been conspicuous by absence, beyond question the chief reason for the imilUpiictty ot strikes and stoppages of the past decade. Mere adoption, of Ihe CED program will not guarantee their presence in bargaining. The existence of a strong, competent, impartial Federal mediation 'service capable of placing hlnnv: where it belongs for refusal or inability to reach decisions without strife should provide o much better approach to labor peace than has been visualized so far. —DALLAS MORNING NEWS.

A ?iniilnr delay in working out organization details for merjser ot .the- armed services would be equally as cosily, he declares. Critics of the Army-Navy merger have in recent weeks tried lo make when the Atomic Enenty , separation was so complete ad- bcfore Congress. Pcrfec- ' mirals and generals wouldn't speak ''- " '"•"-' ~" to each other. And look what happened to them. Continued separation of the ser- wcrc respon- vices can only lead to greater confusion, says Patterson. Today there Is no official in either Army or Navy who knows what the budget of the, other service is. The budgets arc handled by separate, appropriations subcommittees in Congress. II is only when both arc fully co- ordlnalcd that the country will have a real national dejense plan. IN HOLLYWOOD BY KKSKINT. JOHNSON NKA Staff Oirresiinmlvnl i HOLUYWOOD.
