On second thought it should because as a law enforcement agency of the federal government it is striving to ' mnkc this a better country in which to live, a country more nearly free of lawless elements. The churches week in and week out arc encouraging one and all to 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. Mr. Hoover in a recent statement placed stress on the need for more "genuine homes" and the statement makes an eloquent sermon. Be 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, reajiect for God 'and their religious principles which must be • perpetuated if : America is to survive as a v. great nsition. Tn both_the church and the home children 'must be made to understand their,;,indiyiduiil responsibility for personal conduct. • Too Many Jobs ; With millionsi facing staryation, it might seerh thaj,-; thf;'idictatdr.4liip of UNRRA \VmJld.-beii ]f ( u|i-tj{ne Jiib. .Eul Director Fiorello iLaGuarilia "sefeis to s find plenty, of time for other activities.

Sir. LaGuardia has every rijfiil to disagree with Mr. Hoover and to express that disagreement. But the petty fault-finding and hair-splitting that he indulged in leave one wondering whether his deepest concern was with the world's hungry millions or'whether his intention was to embarrass and belittle II r. Hoover. • . ( ':_>,; ' ' - '• ( Herhort Hoover/was not'the most ]>opuhir or successful President thai this country over had. But he hns a record of sou nil achievement in food administration. ^ It was undoubtedly as the former U. S. Food Commissioner and director of Belgian relief in World War 1 that Mr. Hoover was chosen by President Truman to survey the famine areas and submit a report. Mr. Hoover accepted the invitation. But Mr. LaGuardia did not.-teven credit the former President with good intentions, much less wisdom. Mr. LaCiiardia, who has sat in Washington since taking on the UNRUA job, apparently knew all 1 ? the answers. His superior contempt 1'or the Hoover proposals filiQuted even from the impersonal black-and-white of the newspaper story of his rebuttal. •Mr. Hoover had said: "The world must quit charity as a basis of widespread food distribution." This wouldn't do at all, so 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 UNKUA be supplanted on Sept. 1 by a world food authority under the United Nations. (Not a bad idea, it would seem, in view of UNRUA's scarcely brilliant achievements.) Mr. LaGuar- di.i'.s answer to this was: "it is impossible lo take a stopwatch and say at a given hour of a given day, 'We are riot 1 going'to give you any move' food.'." That seems a deliberate distortion of Mr. Hoover's meaning. All this might seem unimportant, if ' Mr. hn'Guardia did not head the agency ' primarily responsible for getting food to hungry people. But since "he does, it becomes important to all of us.

(NEA1 — President Truman's letter to Hen. Bob Wagner of '. New York called imminent, danger of inflation "the most important issue now before Lhc Congress." That statement, though since derailed by the rail strike, takes in a lot 'ol territory, including atom control legislation and other explosives, like the British loan. In spile of this high priority i;iv- cn price control, and In spile ^ the fact that Congress lias been dallying with this extension fov four months, it will be another week before Senator Wagner's Hanking ami Currency Committee will complete its deliberations. Then a few weeks more for Senate floor debate. Anil a couple of weeks more for Senate and House conferees lo agree on liow 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.
