Genuine Homes Needed Few who help support the Federal Bureau of Investigation on first thought see it working hand in hand with the churches of the land. On second thought it should because as a law enforcement agency of the federal government it is striving to ' make this a better country in which to live, a country more nearly free of lawless elements. The churches week in and week out are encouraging olie am ' "" lo observe the commandments which are the very foundation for the most essential laws of the land. And the FBI today is working to prevent crime with the vigor that it hunts down those who by their acts become public enemies. Sir. Hoover in* a recent statement placed stress on the need for more "genuine homos" and the statement makes an eloquent sermon. He said, Through experiences, we of the FBI have observed that those who are active in some*church are also the people who seem'.most interested in establishing a genuine "home" for their children . . . We need homes where the children feel inalienably attached to the family circle—a place where questions are answered, sympathy and affection received and frequent family activities promoted which -allow expression and participation by every member of the group. We need homes where children learn respect -for their parents, respect for law, respect for God and their religious principles which must be perpetuated if America is to survive as a v. great nation. In both the church and the home children-must be made to understand their.j.indiyidual responsibility for personal conduct. : • ; • ' • . ' i r. , -:..'' -', Too Many Jobs • ; • •.

I.aGuardia has every right to disagree with Mr. Hoover and to express that disagreement. But the petty fault-finding and hair-splitting that ho indulged in leave one wondering whether his deepest concern was with the world's hurigry millions or'whether his intention was to embarrass and belittle Mr. Hoover. • v •'>,/ ' " Herbert Hooves'/was not the most ix>pul;ir or successful President that this country over had. But he has a record of sound achievement in food administration. ^ It was undoubtedly as the former U. S. Food Commissioner and director of Belgian relief in World War I that Mr. Hoover was chosen by President Truman to survey the famine areas and submit a ro|xn-t. Mr. Hoover accepted Hie invitation, l!ut Mr. LiiGuiirdia did not-;even credit the former President with good intentions, much less wisdom. Mr. l.aGuardia, who has sat in Washington siiice taking on the UNRUA job, apparently know all; the answers. His superior contempt yjor the Hoover proposals .shouted even from the impersonal black-and-white of the newspaper story of his rebuttal. v Mr. Hoover had said: "The world must unit charity as a basis of widespread food distribution." This wouldn't do at all, HO Mr. LaGuardia rephrased Mr. Hoover's speech for him: "Moreover, the world must continue cooperation as a basis of food distribution." Mr. Hoover had suggested that UNKRA be supplanted on Sept. 1 by a world food authority under the United Nations. (Not a bad idea, it would seem, in view of UNKllA's scarcely brilliant achievements.) Mr. LaGuar- dia'.s answer to this was: "jft j^ impossible to take a stopwatch and say lit a given hour of a given day, 'We are riot : going to give you any more ! food.'." .That seems a deliberate distortion of Mr. Hoover's meaning. All this might seem unimportant i[ Mr.' haCuardia did not head the agency ' primarily responsible for getting food to hungry people. But since 'he does, it becomes important to all of us. If Mr. Laguardia cannot distinguish between Herbert Hoover, Republican elder statesman, and, Herbert Hoover, relief authority ( and i : i h'tj'rnjj/nitarian, and if he. confuses 'hW 'o>'n;'fjohtical '•''ambitionS^'with hftf * iiitclriitt'^tJMKRA position, it might be well if he would step down and let a more single-minded administrator lake over his life-and- dealh job.

Bob Wagner ol I New York called imminent danger of inflation "tile most important issue no'.v before the Congress." That statement, though sinee derailed by the rail strike, takes in a lot 'of territory, including atom control legislation and other explosives, like the British loan. In spite of this hieh priority given price control, and in spite of fact that congress has been | *r lallying with this extension for four months, It will be another week before senator Wagner's Banking and Currency Committee will complete its deliberations. Then a few weeks more lor Senate floor debate. And a couple of weeks more lor Senate and House conferees to agree on how much they'll knife CPA In the back. If the act is completed by June 30. when the present OPA law expires, it will be sheer 'luck.
