That covers everybody, not only the gangster. : Reds' Purges Have More Than One Dark Purpose Communist actions always are susceptible of many interpretations, and '• often they have many purposes at pncfc. For instance, East German Reds are I now weaving a net about certain former top .party members, seeking to • link " them with the so-called Slansky group ' in Czechoslovakia. Fourteen of this group recently were convicted of trea- - son and other, crimes, and 11 were hanged in Prague. In this new eiTort, the Communists seem basically to be striking at the , problem of disloyally to the Soviet Union — Tltoism, if you like. It is not enough to be a good Communist. You must be loyal to the Russian Fatherland. This is not easy for men who want to be not only Communists but good Germans, Czechs, Hungarians, Romanians, etc. The conflict is deep. The stronger personalities, the very individuals most useful to Russia in fastening Red control upon a country, ultimately become the most likely candidates for elimination. For in their leadership runs inevitably a marked nationalistic strain. The Soviet Union's relations with the satellite powers are at the stage where nationalistic tendencies must he suppressed if the process of consolidating the Iron Curtain countries is to make substantial headway. Tito's example is a painful reminder to the Kremlin of the dangers of independent satellite action. In this East German case, the Reds are striking also at "Zionists." The Slansky group is so labeled, and the former German Communists' under fire bear the same tag. Again, the problem is disloyalty, but in a different sense. The Jews have a cultural unity all thtir own, internationalist in scope. The Russians cannot tolerate so powerful a rival Anti-Semitism in the Communist world thus docs not have the same base as elsewhere. H is just one more reflection of the ruthless Red policy of allowing no competitors of any kind whether cultural, political, economic or spiritual. Divided loyalty is the enemy of the totalitarian principle of government. Always alert to propaganda potentialities the Kremlin may not be unmindful of the fact that its current blast against "Zionism" among satellite Reds will sound good to the Arab world. The Arabs bitterly resent western, especially American, attention to the young Zionist state of Israel. In Czechoslovakia, too, the Communists were looking for scapegoats for BLYTHKVTLT.B (AltK.)'

Moscow seldom tries to kill just one bird with a stone. /lews of Others rYhat Would Be Left? There may be renewed talk of a federal sates tax If revenues from existing sources fall below expectation* and the deficit anticipated by the president materializes. The president, who has been notoriously wrong in aiich mnttcrs before, is estimating that the treasury's deficit may come to *10 billions for this fi&cal year. Secretary Snyder ts concurring in that estimate, although it is'not clear whether his pessimism is based on Information unavailable to more cheerful forecasters who SRC a deficit of no more than $4 billions. Eisenhower advisers who have spoken of the possibility of a federal snles tax say it should not include food, housing, fuel and utilities. Nor do they Advocate a snles tax on goods already subject to federal excises.

DuL the cry that free enterprise can't do the Job Is slill n phony one. During thts year, (or example, 15 private,power companies worked create the Ohio Valley Electric Corporation to bnlhi two stoam plants with a combined capacity of 2.2 million kilowatts to supply power to the Federal Government's Atomic Energy Commission. That In Itself demonstrated thai private enterprise not only Is willing and able to meet conventions! needs, but also lj ready to meet tha extraordinary needs resulting from defense project which require large amounts of electricity. Another example of private enterprise's ability to mrfit the challenge is found In plans (or development of more power In the Niagara Falls area. Five New. York Sfnte power companies have made both physical and financial plans to carry out the project and provide the. needed electric capacity ns soon as the FedernJ Government approves the plan. Under the Truman Admin-' JstraUnn, of course, approval has been held up while the socialized power-group has been seek, * -, Ing lo extend socialism/ In the nrca to the exclusion of free enterprise. Both Hie steam plant co-operative project In Ohio and the hydra-electric co-operative project proposed at Niagara Falls by free enterprise companies indicate an ability and eagerness of America's tax-paying electric companies to do the Job Jii the traditional American way. America has grown to be a great nation on the muscles and brains of free enterprise. It Is only in recent years that the deteriorating taint of Socialism — which we have seen ruin once mighty Britain — has crept into the American scene. —Chattanooga News-Free Press, De Gustibus A French court has refused to award, damages In a suit brought against an architect on the grounds that his building Is an eyesore. The court held that artistic tnste Is "changeable, varying, too vague and controversial," and ihat one man's opinion on the subject could tiot be called a crime. It's a svlse decision. A Latin proverb covers the subject: "De gustibus non riisputanrium" — there's no dispute about tastes.

Erskine Johnson IN HOLLYWOOD Peter Edson's Washington Column — Budget Director Dodge Smiles Through His Initiation by Press WASHINGTON — (NBA)— The new director of the budget. Detroit hanker Joseph M. Badge, hart been (old by someone thai when he gestured for the news photographers lie should say "Cheese!" That of course, is the c a rn era man's way to get people to smile and show their pearly teeth. rctcr Eilson Tint when Mr. Dndge faced Ihe Washington press corps' for the first full-scale press conference to he held hy n top man In President-elect Eisenhower's new official family, the reporters changed Ihe formula. "Sny 'Billions! 1 " suggested a reporter. Obediently, Mr. Bridge said "Bil- lons." Emphasizing it with a wicked shake of the right forefinger. Flash bulbs went off and '(lie in- •iltlenl was recorded for history. Thus was the new budget direclor- '.o-be Initiated and given the password he will be using most often in his forthcoming official capacity. The new head money man turned out to be of medium height and mild. His hair is thinning and graying. He had a nice, friendly smile •not the usual banker's smile — and there wns a twinkle of kindness In his eyes. He wore plain, plastic- rimmed spectacles. His suit was a banker's conservative charcoal-and-gray - striped double-breasted job. His, shirt was blue and white Etrlnert and his tic was plain nav.v blue, lapel buttonhole was In his coat (he red rosette of the Medal of Merit, awarded him by President Truman for his war services as a financial adviser. When Mr. Bodge stood up to talk he kept his right hand in his panls pocket — the money, pocket. He held his cigaret in his left hand and there was a gold ring on the little finger. . He didn't have » great deal to say that was new. The press conference was his own idea. He had a two-page typewritten statement of 10 points which ,he had written or dictated himself.' The gist of it was that he was disassociating himself and t h e Eisenhower administration ns a whole from any connection whatever with the Truman administration budget. Period. If he had quit there, everything would have been all right, maybe. But Mr. Dodge was willing and eager to talk about his statement for background only and not for attribution or quotation. That threa cned to spoil the story, but later on he relented a little and allowed a few quotes. The new budget director wanted to lake up his prepared statement point by point. "Let's go to numbers nine and ten," suggested a reporter In the back of the room. Mr. Dodge smiled quietly. The last two points brought out were first, that Mr. Dodge was Immediately beginning a review ,of the Truman budget, with Eisenhower's new department hearts. Later he said this would be completed In early April. There was no qualification on the. Elsenhower administration's determination to balance the budget. "Are you confident yon can balance the. budget?" asked a reporter. Mr, Dodge dodged. He started to say thnl to answer that question t was necessary lo make certain assumptions — "You didn't last summer," >roke in (he same reporter. Flnillj- Broke No-Quotes Rule Mr. Dodge let that one have a real belly laugh and the press corps joined him. This was a typical initiation ceremony that wvery new official in Washington goes through, be he Republican or Democrat. Mr. Dodge finally had to break down his own rule and authorize a quotation that It fook six months !o prepare a budget and it wasn't logical to expect anyone could reverse a budget in 60 days. You just couldn't take a federal'govern- ment of two-and-a-half-million em- ployes. K'ilh three-and-a-half million more 1 in the armed services, and shut it off by turning a couple of switches like you do with a toy train. Mr. Dodge said he believed there were people who thought that switches could be thrown this way to shut off expenses. He judged this by many of the letters he had been receiving. The problem was first to deter mine what the expenses of the government had to be. then consider wat revenues were necessary to cover them. If cuts were made, their effect on the economy had to be considered. The meat-axe approach might balance the budget, but it migh also create more problems than foreseen. Mr. Dodge saU he preferred to make cuts on sped fie items than across-the-board cuts of 10 per cent or so. For some time to come, said the new budget director in closing, the new administration was going to have trouble in putting into effec 1 policies It could call its own.
