Plain Talk Some people have complained, not without justice, that Wnr Mobilize) 1 , Byrnes did not go far enough toward urgiiij; an all-out effort in his first report to the President, Congress and the American people. But at least he delivered up some plain and candid trilk, a commodity which at limes has seem• ed to be rationed in the District of Columbia. Mr. Byrnes brought the current picture of our national economy into proper focus, avoiding the rosy light.of our August optimism and the deep shadows of panicky December despair. In that focus first things came first. Recon- version, long overemphasized, was not condemned or blacked out, but scaled ; in proper proportion to the paramount L need of war production. Mobilization and manpower, stabilization and inflation, taxes, labor relations, agriculture, contract termination, surplus properly—these and other war- born or war-aggravated problems received a generally forthright treatment. In fact, Mr. Byrnes touched on almost- every vexing subject except foreign relations. And that subject was taken up by President Roosevelt at his press conference the day after the Byrnes report was made public. What' the. President said ,wRs : comforting, in a general sort of way. Ho was arch and bantering with the assembled press, as is his frequent custom. He told the reporters that diffcr- • ences among the great powers, important or unimportant, were necessary. He said there was no way to bring Russia, Britain and tho • United States any closer except to install their governments in a common capital. He.suggested Unit one'should avoid loud talk on differing interpretation of common principles of policy, just as one should avoid loud talk about a person's individual interpretation of the Ten Commandments. But he did not reveal. > any specific reactions-to recent specific crisps in Europe^ Premier Stalin has been specific on occasion, notably in regard to Yugoslavia and !'Poland. Prime Minister Churchill has given detailed explanations of his position on a variety of matters, from liquidation of the British ian h ! Greece/ grown up in this country, an urgent desire for "loud talk" which has transcended domestic politics and crossed party and intra-party lines. More recently urgent demands for specific statements on American policy have come from Britain. Perhaps Mr. Roosevelt's silence and ' apparent lack of concern conceal a plan of ~ his own for reconciling admitted differences at the coming meeting of the "Big Three." Perhaps his special information leads him to believe that the general anxiety is unnecessary. But in either case the public's obvious desire Deflated Hero Wo clon'l know whether young Harvard Ilodgkins got carried away by the " drama of his part ill helping the FBI catch those two Nazi spies in Maine. Bui it dopK seem that the G-men gave Harvard an unnecessarily brusque brush-off in contradicting his claims. The FBI hits done a magnificent job in this war. Hut, ns Director ,J. Kdgar Hoover himself has said, his men do need the public's help in apprehending spies and saboteurs. And such a .".tern refutation of a youngster's claim—refutation that sounded like ungratiUule —seems scarcely the way to acknowledge past help nnd encourage future assistance.

A. nudd of FayeHovllle, convicted of manslaughter last April by a Washington county Jury and sentenced to five years' imprisonment, is that llio governor virtually tnok the case nwny from the courts before the Supreme Court had iinsscd on tt. It is true Hint Hie case was not actually before (he courts nl the time the pardon was Issued. Dul the convicted mini's lawyers hud withdrawn his appeal only two clays before Governor Adklns crantcd a. full pardon with restoration of citizenship. The governor sought to justify his notion by citing certain statements physicians had mmle, but Qovcrhor Ad- klns WES milking himself n court, for final trial of this cnse when It had not been heard by Ihe Supreme Court. His action iii effect impeaches the Supreme Court because lie was nol willing lo leave justice to lhal court. Only the day before the pardon was grunted (he Washington county prosecutor, ,lcff Duly, wrote Governor Adklns that clemency would tend to create disrespect for law in Northwest Arkansas. Certainly it can not increase respect for the courts nnd t!io Inws they, arc maintained lo administer to have verdicts pushed aside by executive action. ' This pnrdon was grunted in the Insl week of Governor Adklns 1 administration. It is notorious fact In Arkansas that governors have often inndc free use of the pardoning power when they were on the point of retiring from office. —ARKANSAS GAZETTE.

It's the work o When New York Was Young I i TN 1750 the home of Maj. Daniel Lawrence, a slurcly house of Dutch pattern, stood on William street, near Ihe corner oE \Vall. York was as quiet as n co\m- ry town in those days. There vcre shade trees—locust or pop- ar—on all the Elrcels; during he summer nights the air was full f the chirping of katydids, and he inhabitants were awakened in .he morning by the piping of )irds. Behind the'Lawrence house, and jclonging to it, there was n garden, an orchard of pear trees, a stable and a press for i-nakhif: cider. A dovecote and a dozer beehives were just beyond the garden. It was a (juict place, with nothing to break the silence but the loud talk of the cexvants in the kitchen and the clatter of plates. Now and Ihcn Mistress Lawrence or her daughter Elizabeth played the spinet in the sitting room and its tinkling notes ran quivering through the air. . The family had ;i part in the social life of Ihe town, and occasionally the house was full of company. Then the chillier of soft feminine voices and loud masculine laughter ran all over the house and garden. Though it stood almost in the center of the city of New Yorlt the Lawre'ncc place had n rural ,air which flowed from the day's 'activities. Every day the cows 'were driven through the street* to a common pasture which was a short distance west of Broadway and were milked on their returi in the late afternoon.
