Threats Wi 1 1 Not Free Oatis, But Quiet Pressure Might Th« dressing-down given the new O«ch ambassHdor by President Truman and Secretary of State Acheson over th« Oatis case was necessary for th« record. Yet it'« hardly likely they imagined the«« tactics would have much Nor ihoulci we take too seriously the atarchy protest ol Dr. Vladimir Pro- ehazka, the Czech envoy, that the OatU affair is closed and that bin government will not yield to pressures of any sort. It should be obvious that Czechoslovakia.'! Communist regime will not knuckle under to American threats hurled publicly either by high officials or Congress. In fact, it is pretty safe to «ay that the longer we keep the steam up over the Oatis imprisonment, the longer will this Associated Press correspondent languish in a C/.ech jail. Communist concern for prestige cannot permit any other course. The Vogeler case 1» an instructive precedent. Men who know how Robert Vogeler's release from a Hungarian prison was obtained will tell you that publicity was the enemy of our efforts. But this does not mean nothing can be done. Note that Prochax.ka carefully specified that tlie Oatis csse is considered closed from the "juridical point of view." In the minds of many, thai could mean It ivS stilj open from the political standpoint. A deal is evidently not impossible. What kind of deal 1 .' That's not an easy question. But in spile of all Pn> chazka's bluster about not yielding to pressure, there is a strong likelihood that we may hit upon some cumliimitiun of restrictive measures which will .so hurt the Czechs that they'll be willing to trade Oatis off to lie rid of I hem. One Ihing that undoubtedly helps tn explain Czechoslovakia's present obstinacy is our adamant refusal to curb the highly successful propaganda broadcasts from Fiadio Free Kurope near Munich. The Reds are deeply disturbed over these programs, and their disposition has not been improved by our rejection of their formal government protests. They may remember that one concession granted the Hungarians for Vogeler's release was a shutdown ,^of powerful Voice of America broadcasts from Munich. In that instance, however, our loss was more imaginary than real, since we could beam VGA programs In Hungary almost as effectively from Sa- lonika, Greece. Radio Free Kurope is different. It's a privately sponsored enterprise, and by all odds one of our most dramatically useful propaganda efforts. Closing it down is a price we probably will not pay. Some other bait may nevertheless appeal to the Czechs. The vital point to r«memb«r now li that th« Vogeler talk i were ultimately auccesgful because they were secret; they were not conducted in an atmosphere of threat and bluster. The Hungarians gave way at a time when they may have concluded that their own people, and perhaps the outside world, had largely forgotten the issues involved. There in utterly no reason to believe it will be any different with Oatis, if there is any hope at all of freeing him. When you're dealing with Communists, it's necessflry to remember that bluster begets bluster. The only way we could make good on tough talk would be to send an armed expedition after Oatis. Is that bow we want another war to start? Reader's Views Crime Commission's Report In Us linal report last week, the Senate crime Investigating committee strewed aijuin the necessity lor a vigorous ami continuous nftilon- widt fight agaitisi organized crime and the corruption that goes therewith. The establishment o( a federal crime comrolssion, urged in an interim report, now is embodies In. a bill before Congress. That measure tins drawn opposition, it notes, from the treasury and Justice departments. Without receding from its proposal, the committee recognises that the bill's enactment "cannot be accomplished In a short period of time." Bo now It recommends the organization of crime commissions on slate and local levels to carry on th« fight, and the setup of m "privately constituted national crime co-ordinating council" to keep touch with and aid the state and local agencies. The committee believes that "if Congres* fosters UIB establishment of such an organlzitUon, funds from private foundations or philanthropist* can be obtained to give it permanent life . . . Experience has shown that the crime cominl.ssion movement cannot piogreni unless it ha« a national parent body with sufficient prMtlge and funds to glvt It drlv*." lArge part of the report IB devoted to the growing narcotic evil, already of menacing proportion*. '"The organized gangster syndicates," warn* the committee, "will unquestionably turn to th« »al« of narcotic drugs when they are driven out of the presently lucrative field of gambling." Tlie record shows that organized gangsters of "public enemy" stripe already are operating In tha narcotic field. The committee urges lighter Inwc against this nefarious traffic, sttffer punishments and Increase of personnel for the law- enforcement agencies now fighting it. Finally It repeats tU conclusion that "crlm* must be attacked at the local level," urge* a review of stale legislation to eliminate technical loophole* or omlsslont that permit th« •scape of criminals and sometimes,are cited by law-enforcement officials to excuse lax enforce- ments. "The public now knows that law enforcement Is essentially a local matter calling for constant vigilance at the local level and a strengthening of public acid private morality." The Senate committee rendered a remarkably fine service by itx investigations and their startling revelations. Its recommendations for continuing this essential work deserve the attention and study of law-loving Americans the country over. —NEW ORLEANS TTMES-PICAYUNB There'll Be Plenty of ' 'Beefing' About This It was not so many weeks EIRO that the nation's housewives, harassed by the rising cost* of neci'ssitlcA for stocking the family larder, .saw * ray of uinslilne In the announcement of the gnverJ'tncLiL'n Intention to order » reduction In Die price of beef. Then came Con Kress when the Defense Pro- durltoii Act expired to pass mi act which provided, fmioiiR other things, that price ceilings be tixrrl to preserve normal profit margins. Now. we learn, cattle byproduct yields have been lagging and, if the meat industry is to maintain lt,s normal profit margin*, it will have to be compensated by a rise of a cent, or two a pound In the price ol many cuts of beef- We suspect that when those are put into effect, the howl of the housewives over the nation ivill be* sufficiently loud for Congrrw, to hear it, Whether Congress will heed It remain* a moot question. —ATLANTA JOURNAL SO THEY SAY All of Us 'eter , fdson'i Washington Column — By JAMES MARI.OW (Subtil Hut I rig; for Pcler Eds on) WASHINGTON, Sept. 10.

Of a)l :he warm blooded beasts, rats are the most likely to survive and inherit the earth if we insist on blowing it up for our own kind. Even without disaster, rats are : our enemies since they carry diseases like plague, eat our food, destroy our crops, ami even bite us on occasion. ' RaUs are fierce, resourceful and increase their numbers at tremendous rates. They are hard to trap, to poison, or to kilt in other ways — they learn to avoid traps and poison with remarkable ingenuity. But if we would avoid a whole host of dangers and economic drains we must keep battling these pests even though it will be difficult, if not impossible to conquer them completely. From Baltimore, where a few years ago a report came of nearly a hundred people who were bitten by rats bstUy enough to require hospital treatment; comes an interesting study of rat control. Traps, cats, and poisons can keep the rat population low, but the lower It gete the harder It i* to catch or kill the remaining animals.
