""The'Blytheviile Junior Chamber of Commerce has tackled a task which can pay dividends of satisfaction commensurate' with the support which Citizens of Blythcville and Mississippi county give to the campaign to supply the \eedy in other lands with canned food— fooil which is needed to e;.se the pangs of hunger. ; The task has been given to those Jiving in a land of plenty — it might even be called an abundance despite the handicaps of strikes and curtail- jnciit of production in many lines. The manner in which the cam- "paign has been planned is simple, and the plan is one which leaves the whole jmatter to the conscience, and to the ability of those who want to contribute. The Jaycees arc asking those who -will assist to merely make an extra ^purchase when they • buy their Sfi'o- .ceries in their favorite store and leave .'the 'surplus with the merchant who in ;turn will put it in the hands of the ;Emergency Food Collection Committee ;of the-Blythevillc Jaycees. "••"The committee will direct the collection of the food contributed and see • that --it is forwarded to a warehouse 'where .it may be loaded for shipment !to men, women and children who are J starving across the sea. f A simple plan, it is one which will •not cause a hardship oh a single per- •rapiij, unless it be those it was designed Jt^Jbeiiefit and then it will be because ;!tiiiose\.who can share their food with Cher's failed to give. The Blythcville committee has ^actcd wisely in presenting to citizens £Kerc : a plan wholly devoid of pressure 'tactics. What any individual gives is a ^matter of his concern, and his only. Give what you find in your heart 'Jto give and feast in satisfaction that -you are one of many in America who -•will not let a brother down, even ' Jliough he happens to be a citizen in I another land who is helpless through • no fault of his own. Telling It Straight Ever since the four-jwwer Allied control Council was recently set up In the Pacific It has been the habit of LJeut. Gen. Dcrevyanko, the Russian member, to needle his American colleagues. For the most the needling has been confined to finding fault with General MacArthur's directives. That altitude, nnd the fact that he had found evidences of an organized communist propaganda, effort, finally angered George Atchejon Jr., personal representative of Gencrfil MacArthur in the council, to such an extent that he "told oft" the Russian in manner not to be misunderstood. "I don't need to (ell you," he said, addressing the Ftussian, "that the United States docs not lavor Communism—either ill the Unit«l Elates or Japan." The American pointed out that the Job of Allies is to democratize Japan and not tell the people kind of n' government they are to establish, or to support any one form of political activity as apparently the Iliisslans have been doing. What Mr. Atcheson did not say in so many words, hut what he surely means, is that the defeat of Japan by what was lar?ly American might wns not accomplished for the mere purpose of selling up aiiolhcr Russian-dominated state. It is refreshing to discover that somebody representing the Washington Government has the courage to speak ii.s Mr. Atcheson did. If there hud been more o( such straight talking long ago the whole International pictrue mlghl be brighter than it is now. —COMMERCIAL APPEAL. Far Too Many Doctors Public Pays the Strike Bill The chief, and inevitable, result of prolonged strikes in this postwar Mine is the crippling ol production. The war in Europe has been over foi a year, but millions of American consumers arc still waiting for goods and materials which orderly reconversion should have brought them mouths ago. The losses to all types of business are enormous. Other losses wiiich aliccl a very large section of the public are the reduction or omission of dividends by key Industries. Thousands of individuals, anu institutions, are dependent upon the return from their investments or those made for them by trustees. Disorderly labor relations can affect the economic line of a nation for years. Washington cannot act too quickly in'curbing such irresponsible power. —CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR. * JN HOLLYWOOD . . .

(NEA) — Some adviser apparently gave President Truman another bum steer for his recent press conference state-' ment that the Wagner Act would prevent John L. Lewis from collecting money from the coal operators for his union health and welfare fund. What Section Eight. Paragraph Two, of the Wagner Act says is that, "ft shall be an unfair labor practice for an employer ... to dominate or Interfere with the forma- ,lon or administration of any la-' )or organization or contribute fman- cial or other support to it." If this contributing financial sup- lort clause is broad enough to bun onnage royalty payments or pa"roll deductions for health and welfare funds, it should also be broiul enough to prohibit the chtck-iff of union dues by the employer. But the fact is that Ibis clause WAS never intended to cover such situations. Any pupil in a junior high school civics class who will take the trouble to read the congressional rc- ix>rts for the period when the Wagner Act was up for consideration. In 1935. will see at n glance that this section does not apply to. welfare funds. THIS SECTION IS AIMED AT COMPANY UNIONS What it was Intended to do was break up the old company union jacket. Before the Wagner Art was passed, it was the custom o( some of the bigger and hadclnr employers to sponsor employes' associations, dictate all the rules ancl for all the picnics, nnd Ihen iet on that these workers were organized in Independent unions. In mor.l instances, these company-dominated unions got around all the rights ol collective bargaining. The princip.V idea of the Wagner Act was to pro mote collective bargaining. In the Senate report of May. lOITi there is a full discussion of this com pony union section of the Waciv Act. It sets forth specifically iha there Is no intent to interfere will pension or welfare plans, so lont as these benefits arc not \ised ^ a cover-up for discriminatioi against, or in favor of, memborshi in labor organizations. The report goes even further thai that. It says that in the past thcj benefit and welfare funds have lually promoted friendly relation between employer and employes. The committee report then goes on 'o say that it hopes such plans will [ continue to function in the fnlinv. i What you have here is (hc opposite of what Truman's advisns I apparently tried to fccrt him. F.v.- denying the miners or any unions the right to rollpc; :rom the employers for a welfare 'und. this Senate report shows he men who wrote Ihc law lot be averse to seeing more suo'.i )cncfit plans set up. SNYDKK IS ACTUALLY TO "GET" LEWIS Board. Now it is Snydcr. So it goes. This is the old familiar pattern 'of coal strike negoti.i- tions. The operators and then the government get the John L. jitters, making him their personal devil, try to stop him—and in so doing play right into his hands. After everyone is thoroughly confused, Lewis Cities having a population ol over 250,000 inhabitants rejxirtcr crime increases of 13.1 per cent; while cities having less than 10,00( inhabitants shiwcd Increases of 13.3 per cent; and crime in rural areas increased 8.5. per cent. A survey of 543.852 arrest records revealed that persons under 21 years of age lotaled 113.MG. or 21 per cent of all arrests. More per- scns aged 17 were arrested than in any oilier age group. U. S.
