Claim of Averting War Is Discredit to Attlee Party The British Labor party did little to heighten its stature in the world's eyes when it claimed that Prime Minister Attlee's 1950 visit to America averted World War III. ;' , -,; , According to a recent party policy statement, Attlee came to see President Truman at a time when it was feared the United States was considering use of the atomic bomb in Korea. The state- - ment presumes this was so, and that Attlee dissuaded .the President from that course. There was also concern, the Labor statement relates, over prospects that General MacAvthur might extend the war to the Chinese mainland. Both these declarations are grossly inaccurate. Even though it is evident they are designed for domestic consumption, in expectation of a new British election soon, they reflect discredit on the Labor Party. The fact is well known that Mr. Truman's press conference comment on possible use of the A-bomb was carelessly phrased. It was not intended to convey the notion the bomb was under consideration for Korea. A corrective statement later issued by the White House made this clear. Hence, long before Attlee came to America he knew Britain's'fears were groundless. He could not have dissuaded the President, since there was nothing to dissuade him from. Admittedly, MacArthur's goals in the Far East were less sharply defined. His frequent disgressions from declared U. S. policy were troubling Mr. Truman no less than Attlee. But it is clear from the record of the MacArthur Senate hearings this spring that plans for extension of the Korean war never reached the concrete stage. To argue, therefore, that Attlee's visit forestalled such extension is absurd. ' The manufacture of foolish claims like these does more than tax credibility. It mars the integrity of the British Labor government. And it makes strongly apparent the fact that irresponsibility in politics is not a peculiarly American commodity. Lessing, one of iti wditorg, industry needs 30,000 engineers • year for normal growth and replacement. Beside that, it currently hag a deficit of 60,000 engineers. Lessing found that the number of engineering graduates is expected to taper off from 25,000, next June to a possible low of 12,000 in 1954. Engineering enrollments are down sharply, and there appears .little that can be done about this critical shortage in the next few years. Fortune's analysis lays blame for the scarcity on: The low birth rate of the 1930's; a "national letdown" after World War 11, marked by a turning away from "potentially destructive science"; the slowness of Congress in establishing a National Science Foundation to organize and direct basic research; and misleading government reports suggesting a surplus of engineers when the reverse was true. A committee of Congress has proposed a national scientific personnel board to help the President channel technical manpower into critical areas of industry, government research, teaching and military service. These seem sound proposals to deal with the immediate dearth of engineers. But attention must be given to the longer range problem of luring more American youths into engineering as a lifetime career. leader's Views iNeed Technical 'Brains' .the time the furore broke over fgrernment's controversial draft jte||rmine deferments, a prime he examinations was the nation of sufficient personnel. ^Magazine field To Ihe Editor: Having lived In Blythevllle for some 31 yean,' I have Seen quite some changei. Our town has grown into a .small city, thus bringing, along with It larger and different kinds of problems One of the problemi now facing us Is th« traffic problem. With more and mora automobile* and trucks going on the roads and streets every day, this Is something for some one to think about. Traffic, on busy days and nlght« here, li practically stymied on Main Street from the Intersection of Highway Hi and Main Street all the way to the Intersection of Lilly and Main, Yes, we have a traffic light at every Inter- aectlon, but try to get down the. street. The lights are not synchronized, thus you are forced to stop at every Intersection, What would happen If a serious flr» broka out at one of these busy times when traffic was blocked all the way from "Highway 61 to Lilly on Main street—with curs and trucks lined up bumper to bumper all along? How would any kind of fire apparatus get through? How could an ambulance possibly get through? Why not have traffic policemen at these busy Intersections and turn 'off the traffic llghU? Traffic being considerably heavier on Main, the officers could keep traffic moving on both Main and the side streets. . — Traffic light*, being only a mechanical de- • vice, can not keep traffic regulated when ont street carries ten times the traffic that a cross st(eet carries. We have traffic lights Installed In our city where they serve one purpose only— that Is to hinder the movement of traffic. Take the light at Park Street and Highway 61. Any time you care to check this place, you will find traffic "tied up" from Chlckasawba to Park Street. Stop signs on the east and west sides of the highway are nil that are necessary at any time.. There is no logical reason why tralfic on a U. 8. highway should be made to stop at this intersection with a Itttle-nsed -side street. I have visited neighboring towns anil find that the traffic lights are so timed that when the green or "go" signal conies on, you are able to travel six lo eight blocks before having to slop again for a traffic light. Who is rcsiHinstble for the situation tn Blythe- vllle? Is il the police department? Whoever it is, they should get busy and do something before something serious happens. I am not and do not mean to be critical of the city administration, but. this is a serious problem that can and should be remedied. Name withheld by request. SO THEY SAY Don't Let Anybody Fool You, Son! Peter ft/son's Washington Cotumr Gamblers Are Targets of Five Proposed Tax Bill Amendments (Second of * series un new laws proposed to beat the crime wave,) WASHINGTON tNEA) —The Senate's Kefam-er - O'Conor Crime InvestigRtiuii Committee, In Its 23 refurm measure. 1 ; now before Con' to m c n t agency, ]s almed nl the numbers racket based on the dally TreaMiry statement.

Another Committee jirnpasa] would make it & federal crime for anyone to iL?e telephone or telegram for transmission of gambling Information. This would not, however, bar the use of wire* lor placing bets by Individuals. The Crime Committee's legal staff tried to write a definition of » gambler, and outlaw them. But the tnsk has so far been impossible, so a new approach has been taken. Tt would make illegal the transmission across state lints ot information used Tor gambling purposes. What It Is hoped this will rio is stop organized. layoff And comeback belting by RambUng syndicates. Slili nnn(her proposRI U to revise the slot machine act of 18aO i banning their uhlpment in interstate commerce. Definition of what a slot machine b has. proved difficult. Also opposition of some 4CW cnniivnl cnmrmnlta who run [taniM of chance for lodges and church fairs watered down effectiveness of the law. The Crime Committee now proposes a broader, prosecuting attorney's definition to ban [rom interstate commerce any device that pays off anything of value throuch an element of chance. H would exempt drug store pin-ball mnchlnes that pay off in a free namf. But. it would ban I lie one-ball games that have a cnsh payoff. Five tax bill amendments aimed at gamblers are proposed. One would Impose new penalties for violating g!ot machine and retail llq.ior regUt ration regulations Occupational tax returns by retail vendors have in the past been filled with false statements because there AS no penalty. Another tax bill would require legalized gambling casinos — like Nevada's— to keep books and report dally totals. Illegal would be required to keep records of every bet. This would either pu them out of business or provide om more law for them to break and be prosecuted for AH tax" payers would be to ke*p their tax returns for seven yearn, under another proposal, Treasury regulations now rcqnlra records for six years in fraud cases only.
