President Tniman seems lo taken the wisest course in the Wallace affair by publicly ignorinsr it- It seems to us that some congressmen might well have followed tlie President's lead to the extent of treating Mr. Wallace's windy overseas oratory with the calmness, that it deserved. This is not to suggest that their wrath was not righteous, or that they should not have expressed it. Bui they increased Mr. Wallace's stature by thcii exaggerated demands that he,be silenced, prosecuted, deprived of bis passport, and denounced by the President. All this tended to make a martyr of Mr. Wallace. It also might have given foreigners the idea that champions of Mr. Truman's foreign pol'cics were powerfully afraid of the Wallace opposition. Even a man less conscious of a sacred mission than Mr. Wallace might find it hard to refuse the slings and arrows of political martyrdom, or the mantle of acknowledged leader of a militant group pf "liberals." Actually', though' Mr. Wallace has donned that mantle, his past history creates the suspicion that .he has been pushed as often has he has led. Some critics have gone so far as to brand his recent "speeches as treasonable. Tut his thinking is hardly si>edfic and practical enough to stamp him a? a leader of a conspiracy. r, Mr. Wallace's most consistent campaigns in the past two years have bce.n against those who oppose his policy of appeasing Russia; arid those in the Democratic Party who has strayed from what he believes Mr. Roosevelt's policies would be today. Otherwise he has not always been consistent or confident. As Secretary of Commerce Mr Wallace enlarged upon the weaknesses of capitalism when addressing hibor groups. But he never offended an audience of businessmen by expressing any doubts of the virtues of private enterprise. « Recently he has deplored tlie stranglehold that British imperialism has fastened on the American government. But once he got to England, Mr. Truman became No. 1 imperialist, ami Mr. Wallace's hearers discovered I hat they and their government were tlie salt of the earth and the hope of the world. Mr. Wallace is really too kiml-he".rt- ed to bo a villain. He is a sort of Tun Quixote. An earnest, high-mir.dcd, ' slightly befuddled warrior, he is ior- ; . ever riding forth to do battle with all sorts of menacing forces in defense of his Dttlcinea, the common man. His crusades, especially against this government's attitude toward Russia and communism, have caused a lot of resentment, in and out of Congress. His speeches in England probably did as much as Senptor Yandenberg's effort's to enlist public support for the Truman Doctrine. Now that support seems almost certain to result in Congress' approving Mr. Truman's request for the loan ; to Greece and Turkey by a big majority, In that event the world will have a definite answer to the question of how truly Mr.' Wallace represents Am«rican opinion. 1 Then his speeches— '. and his martyrdom—probably will be The Search for Definitions The UN. Atomic Energy Commission has discovered, after 10 months, thai it doesn't know what it's talking about. So it has appointed a subcommittee to attempt a definition ol' some basic words. The members will try to t'i'ul a common meaning, in five different, languages, of such things as control, inspection, supervision, muna(;cmfti:l, accounting and licensing. That's fine as far as it goes, but we doubt that it goes far enough. Also urgently needed are common dcf'.i'- lions of even more dasic words that will servo all international discussions, in and out of the United Nations. Democracy, for instance. Liberty, independence, and freedom are ;x;me others. What do they ineaii in Hus:i'.iii, Colombia, China, I'Yance, Greece, everywhere? Is there a common universal meaning for them, or only nationalistic meanings in nationalistic languages? The world had better find out. For llu> seeds of war or peace lie ii definitions.

Dr. C. T.

When P'ice changes are small, when they arc expressed unobtrusively In Improvement ol quality, special oilers, and selling combinations, even a marked readjustment hi thp entire price structure may lie effected without, disturbance ot public confidence. But let competing businesses start slashing prices in an excited manner, nnrt the consequences may become incalculable. ' In a reasonably free market, the balance ot cupply and demand will inevitably regulate the price structure over a period of years. As In- .dustiy catches up with Us orders—barring irti- ficially created shortages— Ihe easing ot public competition for goods will surely result in prices finding their level. Maintenance ol purchasing power among thf; American ^people is ot imuorti'.ncc to our economic well being.

It would be a mistake to assume that fends, rivalries, and hatreds are not found in the modern world. In fact, we have been familiar with "purges" in sonie countries, but in democracies ot the British and American type the reign of law and. the function of law in maintaining the freedom of the individual have become well established. Rival leaders of groups and parties no longer resort lo violence and the weapon of assassination We have progressed even from the days when one American statesman killed another in a duel.
