Army Reforms '"The suggested reforms by the Army "GI gripe board," under Gen. Jimmy •Doolittle's chairmanship, are eminently "sane and, we think, worth doing some'-thing-about. And now is just the time '•to do it. Certainly it is time for some frcsh- ;ening'"up of ancient, traditional Army 'practices, for giving n little more ul- •tention to merit, and for abolishing in a'peacetime Army the wide social disparities which have been the inevitable ^snobbish adjunct of positions of author- lily. These changes should do much to ;mukc the Army more attractive- to vol- 'unteers. And, in the face of recent con- •gressional actions, volunteers seem to be Uhe only answers to our present mili- 'tary needs. I Whether, these reforms might in- ;terfere with combat efficiency are nut ••of 'paramount importance at the moment.-Russia found that her clerno- • cratic army wasn't winning as many iSaltles as It should, and institutes '*harp officer-enlisted man distinctions. Perhaps we should have to also. ~* But the world is striving toward a •Jjirie when there shall be no more combat. In the meantime we and other <nutions shall need armed forces. If the 'sUnited. States can now fashion its '' ! Army to a pattern more consistent with ;its.civilian democratic practices, we may • likely find ourselves with a military •'.£o_rce..of more adequate size and higher morale .than is -the case at present. • kVfc--**-***•>• .-I 1 -Ji-"-*!, "",'••-- ."« ' ' • ' - ..- "'• • ' ' ' present fiscal situation of the United States. The public debt has become so large thnt for mi indeterminate period it w*ll be necessary to realize n maximum volume of federal revenue for absolutely esscntiiii ex|>enulture. Maximum las revcinia can only be hud from the proceeds of maximum production. There Is no oilier enduring source. In the short run. taxes might be levied on accumulated wealth. Our sovlctlzed Icrnilte.s have not yet openly udvocntcd this recourse. Whether it be that they dare not, or still hnvc circumspection enough to realize its futility. Is an unanswered question. What Is more lo the point is thai they advocate tile same thing, substantially, when they foster taxes nm would prohibit or restrict future accumulation ol wealth. Whether It be unrealized, or purposely ignored, the fact exists thai wealth curtailed Is eventually wealth destroyed. Wealth is neither money nor equities. It Is tlie tangible, usable end-product of production. Whether It be in the form of productive or consumptive goods, durable or non-durable, is a question of degree. The durability of wealth has limits. It Is not stntlc. It is ever changing. New wealth must constantly replace thai which ,is consumed or depleted or worn out by use. Were It not so replaced, money and equities would become mere figures on pieces of paper. Menus of production, the source of new wealth, would return to Stone-Age methods. The springs ot lax rc-vcnue would dry up. The |X>wer to hinder accumulation of wealth is the power to destroy accumulated wealth and to reconvert the wheel of progress lo the sledge of barbarism. Even if no other reason existed, the magnitude of the public debt should preclude any thought permitting (axes to Impede the means ol production. The public debt represents a. mortgage against every home, .'arm, mine ami factory In (lie United States. The stability of the nation depends upon orderly reduction of this obligation and public confidence in ability to pay interest oil the unliquidated povlions. The only source or revenue that will make this possible: is m maximum production with its concomitants, maximum employment nrtd return on Investment. Incentive for maximum production is food for the yoose that Inys the golden eggs. Tnxes levied for any objective other than essential revenue win result in the destruction of America ns we have known it and we want to leave it for generations to come. —MANUFACTURERS RECORD. 'Hold Still a Minute! JN HOLLYWOOD . . . BY UHSKINK JOHNSON NEA Staff Correspondent HOLLYWOOD, June 5. (NEA)— "That man," Carole Landls said of Waller Florell, the pixie hat designer, "goes to my head." But the ladles, we can report today, go to Walter Florell's feet. We almost didn't recognize ouv old friend Walter. He was wearing that sheared beaver coat he startled the natives with on his last trip to Hollywood. And he was about H foot taller. "Platform soles on my shoes," he giggled. "They are four Inches thick.!' We looked, it appeared that Walter M'as standing on beige stilts. He took off the shoes. Walter went down to the size of a Hollywood agent. STRICTLY BUSINESS up, along with everything else. (You can buy a nifty little white-mink number for $500.) ROMANTIC TIP-OKI- 1 Waller says he can tell how a married couple Is Betting along, or the status of a love affair, by what happens when a gentleman accom- "It stops my blood circulation a little," he confessed, "but I donjl mind. It's strictly a business proposition. Some of my lady customers complained that I couldn't see their hats from Ihe right level. So now I wear platform soles on my shoes. They cost me $175 a pair, specially made, nut now I can look a hat,' and a woman, square in the eye." Walter Florell, as we've told you I home every before, is a character. He is also •one of America's foremost milliners. He came to Hollywood from his plush, cerise New York salon the other day to introduce such new hats as "Wolf Call," "Blind Date," and "Say Yes" at a movielown hat '.show, and to whip ribbons and stuff aroun<( the heads of such il- iustriotis customers as Joan Crawford, Sylvia |Sidney, and Merle Oljcron. The prices of his hats arc going i panics a lady to his salon, "If the lady tries on Ihe hat and the husband sits and reads a newspaper, saying, 'Yes, darling, it looks wonderful,' while not looking vjnee, I know the innningc will last. "But when the husband says, 'That hat looks horrible,' and the wife replies, 'Oh, shut up. You don't know anything about hats, anyway,' I know there's a divorce coming up." But never lake another woman along when you go to buy a hat, he .says. "If your girl friend says, 'Darling, you look wonderful in that hat,' don't buy it." Walter Florell now has a line of men's hats ,too. Snappy straws, selling for ?(;0. "It. stops the men from squawking about Ihe prices their wives pay for Florell hats." Florell's latest: Man-trap veil",. "They are guaranteed." he says, "to keep hushands and lover;; night." Fish Out of Water Taxes Fatal ..y.lj ..-!.«, ..I , .

June S.iNEAl — The biggest question for debate in Washington these days is whether the "Wagner Act era" of labor union domination Is coming to a turn In the road. The issue is raised by the general support for President Truman's two speeches on labor relallons, the fast action by the House in passing his emergency strike control procmm, and tne onsideratlonjor.that .bill ,by the' Senate. A snap judgment on this question nay on wrong. The real ans.vcr | vill not be forthcoming till returns -ire in from the November clccilons. If a majority of the present Congress is returned lo office, that will an endorsement, of the new Tin- nan labor policy. In the meantime, Ihe six-month investigation of labor conditions asked for by the'President would liave an Important bearing on future labor policies.

The day after that, the stone-mason and the carpenter Ellie had hired started work, and Debby worked with the three of them, doing a little of everything, driving slakes in the ground and shoveling and grading and mixing mortar and carrying things in the wheel barrow.
