FIGURES are being; lossed about loosely to "prove" that the cost of housing has skyrocketed or that it hadn't. Whelrer they "prove" it has or hasn't depends largely upon who Is quoting Ihem. A Grand Rapids, Mich., lumberman and build-inj; contractor apparent! got tired of looking to the left, to the richt, leit, right, etc. He decided to find out just what a .".-bedroom bungalow with Jiving room and combinftion kitchen and dinette cost before the war an i what a similar house would cost now. He uu prompted by a quotation from a speech befoie the Michigan Real Estate association that "he cost of the average single family dwelling now is 58 per cent higher than at the start of the war." He decided to look up his figures for 1941. He did not choose a depression year because then men "took what work they ould get at any price in order to eat." He did lot choose 1939 because building had only begun to Increase in volume then. By 1941 competition and Increased efficiency had brought prices to a reas nable level for comparison with the situation now, he reasoned.

First Decade THE LAST of the first series of savings bonds forerunners of the "defense" and "war" bond series are being retired to lay by the federal government. Thus ends the Jirst decade of sales and redemption of savings bonds. It was in 1935 that Hit er broke the Versailles THE NEWS IN BOOKS By RANDALL HOBA1T Of the Minneapolis Morning Tribune editorial page staff DEMOCRACY'S ability ti produce big men in hours of crisis has been demonstrated once again in the career of Gen. Dwight Eisenhower. The boy who grew up on the wrong side of the tracks in Abi-1 e n e, Kan., heart of America, and went on to lead Allied armies to vic tory over Hitler today ranks Eisenhower first i l the hearts of millions of his countrymen. He is honored as a military ge.iius, symbol of Allied unity, diplomat and all-around good fellow. His appointment last week as army chief of staff undo ibted-ly reflects popular approval Mich as this nation seldom bestows upon one of its sons. That Eisenhower i: worihy of the esteem in which he is held is the theme of Kenneth S. Davis' SOLDIER OF DEMOCRACY (Doubleday, Doran. 53.50) a "full length" biography. As its title Implies, the book accents those democratic orces which molded Eisenhrwer's character and singled hiri out for command. It shows the growth of a "civilian mine" unable to forget that our f rmed services exist to serve tht people, not to coerce them. FAMILY VITAL FACTOR Opening sections are heavy with material about Eisenhower family origins. The sa, a begins long before the Revol ition-ary war when members cf the family settled in Pennsylvania. Later they moved to Kansas, where Ike was born into a family of six boys. The author defends thee details on the justifiable ground that the general's devotion to his family "is both the -ause and the explanation of nuch treaty and ordered conscription and expansion of the German army; President Roosevelt signed the social security bill; Will Rogers and Wiley Post were killed In an airplane crash in Alaska, and the Nazi swastika became the official flag of the reich. A lot of history has been made during the 10 years since then. People all through Europe and Asia have lost much of their worldly goods. Governments have collapsed in many nations. But in the United States security has been maintained. The obligations to those who had confidence in their nation in 1935 now are being met. As we enter the last week of the victory bond drive these facts are worth noting. They emphasize again how safe an investment is one in the government of the United States. The next 10 years may see as many changes as did the last 10, though it is to be hoped the changes will not be rflmnt Publisher, i the Board. Executive Editor. 191 as destructive. Bot pened in Ihe last 10 rest easy in the today still will bring Soviet Kindergartens rRE-SCHOOL education in Russia has attained an all-time high with 2,000,000 children being cared for in 18,000 kindergartens. In the past four years 4,000 have been opened. Before the 1917 revolu tion Russia had very few free kindergartens. The rapid growth of kindergartens has been due largely to the U.S.S.R.'s need for maximum worn-anpower, particularly during the war. Soviet kindergartens, however, are not merely day nurseries for parking children while their mothers are employed in factories and on farms. They have always figured seriously in the Communist pedagogical program. Sometimes over seriously. In the late 1920s, when Soviet experimenters were trying to develop a truly communistic attitude of mind on the part of the masses, educators attempted to condition babies from their earliest infancy to an attitude of "share and share alike." In some Moscow nurseries two infants were rut into the same play pen where a single teething ring was suspended on a Soviet Theorists string within grasp of either Banned Dolls cnil1- Tne idea was to ac- custom infants to the theory property is communal, not personal. Any hazards incident to the sharing of germs were deemed to be outweighed by the eradication of the idea of "mine" as against "thine." In Soviet kindergartens of those days dolls were conspicuously absent. Soviet theorists argued that anything which fostered the maternal instinct in the very young was just outmoded bourgeois ideology. In keeping with the emphasis on the collectivist approach, all toys were such as required participation of more than one child for enjoyment. Soviet children were taught how to work and live on collective farms and homes by being accustomed to toys reflecting collective techniques. The Kremlin lost its enthusiasm for the com munist way of life, thusiasm for that that followed. The experiments in communization of children and adults died in the concentration on the work of strengthening Soviet industry and agriculture for the ordeal of war, correctly as sumed to be ahead. The maternal instinct was found to be not inim-leal to the class struggle. The family was found to be a valuable element in national stability. Besides, Ihe children didn't conform. After all, a child didn't need a factory-made doll in order to play mother. Any old wad of rags could be transformed into a satisfying doll by a child with a mother instinct. So dolls are no longer proscribed in Soviet schools. Today the children in 18.000 Russian kindergartens are playing house with blocks and dolls just like American and British children play with them. Strangely, even in the heavy fog that envelopes Washington today, our congressmen can still see an approaching issue in plenty of time to dodge it. Biography Shows Why 'Ike' Became Democracy's Soldier that is distinctive in him." The Eisenhower clan was and is a close-knit group in which each member draws inspiration and spiritual strength from the others. Dwight's story unfolds as the realization of the American dream. As a boy his big interest was football. The high school class prophet predicted he would become a "professor of history at Yale." His most outstanding trait then, as now, was a genial personality, a talent for getting along. On graduation from West Point, Eisenhower entered upon an army career, influenced only mildly by closing phases of World War I. Promotions were few and far between. He felt that if he ever became a colonel he would be satisfied. After outbreak of World War II, of course, Eisenhower's rise was meteoric. Details are familiar to all who read newspapers. FAITH IX UNITY Davis credits Ike's success as supreme Allied commander to his faith in the idea of command unity and a passionate belief in Allied co-operation. He seeks to erase the popular notion Eisenhower is more diplomat than soldier. "What he did in the military sphere seemed so easily, almost casually, done, that it is easily underrated." SHAEF, that unprecedented command setup employed for the drive into France, was Eisenhower's baby, the author asserts. Without him it would have been impossible. Certainly no other available commander was so willing to rise above narrow nationalism for the sake of the common cause. "His personality evoked an atmosphere in which pettiness withered away," Davis observes. A CROWING MAN Eisenhower's role in the planning and execution of the North Africa campaign, the drive into Sicily and Italy, and the payoff punch through France and Germany is sympathetically record on the basis of what, has hap years victory bond buyers can knowedge that $18.75 invested $25 in 1955. if it ever had any gieat en concept, in the arduous years - ed. It is a thrilling story of a man growing in stature with each new and bigger assignment. Davis handles gently those incidents in which Eisenhower was exposed to criticism Pat-ton's face-slapping jag in Sicily, the Ardennes break-through, and the diplomatic fumbling in North Africa. He has a lot to say about the latter, but he excuses Eisenhower on . the ground that the American education system failed to equip him for the battle of ideologies which flamed in Africa. Aside from the fact some portions are distractingly more Davis than Eisenhower, "Soldier of Democracy" is a biography worthy of its subject. CONTINENTAL DIALING SYSTEM TO SPEED LONG DISTANCE CALLS From the Northwestern Bell IN A FEW years long distance operators will be dialing calls, directly and unassisted, straight through to telephones as far away as the other side of the continent. Necessary ! nation-wide toll dialing is a numbering plan for the entire country. Under this plan, the nation is divided into 60 to 75 "numbering plan areas," each designated by a distinctive three-digit code. Each office in a particular area will have a three-digit office code, not conflicting with the area code or with the code of any other office in the area. To complete a toll call, no more than 10 digits need be dialed the six-digit area and office code plus the four digits of the telephone number called. On an intra-area call, the dialing of the area code will not be required. To the extent feasible, an entire state will be included in a numbering-plan area, although certain larger states, such as New 'York, Texas, California and Illinois, would have to be subdivided into several areas.

ATOMIC BOMB 'IMPLODES INSTEAD OF EXPLODING To the Editor I think that the item about the atomic bomb you reprinted (Nov. 28) from the University of Illinois Alumni News is close to' facts. The concept of nuclear energy is so new that we simply haven't the words to describe it accurately. I am not a physicist but I can well agree, after a careful consideration of the facts, that the bomb actually is a nuclear bomb and not an atomic bomb. Furthermore, I believe that the primary effect of that bomb is not an "explosion" but rather (if I mary coin a word) an "implosion," comparable to the "explosion" of a light bulb. A photographic study of the character of the "explosion" seems to confirm its concentric rather than its eccentric effect. It seems to be a pull rather than a push, a sort of magnet rather than an outward shock. J. R. BUCHWALD, Minneapolis. WISHES STASSEN WOULD RUN AGAINST SHIPSTEAD To the Editor We, of Minnesota, are happy to see the return to civil life of a man who brought order out of chaos in our state Harold E. Stassen. We are also happy to note that this national-sized Minne-sotan flung a challenge to one of our career politicians; to a man whose legislative record is a series of blank pages and question marks. But we are sorry that citizen Stassen did not choose to be a candidate for the Republican senatorial nomination next year. Any other man, although running with Stassen's indorsement, may find our ace isolationist hard to unseat. CARL E. DAVIDSON, Moose Lake, Minn. ing practice is necessary. If a call were being made from Chicago to Newark, N. JK MArket 2-2100, the Chicago operator might determine from her bulletin that New Jersey's area code was 312, and would dial 312, followed by 1he listed number MA 2-2100. But on a call to Newark from Camden, N. J., both of which are within the same numbering plan area, the area code would not be required and the operator in Camden would simply dial the listed number MA 2-2100. EVEN TELEVISION WONT HELP A BIT From the CIO News A RADIO commentator who has laid many an egg in his "predictions" concerning the war, questioned a radio columnist: "My critics say that I'm not as fit for radio as I was for the lecture platform. What do you think?" Quipped the columnist: "Radio Is wonderful for you. Where else can you reach millions who can't reach you?" At t THE GALLUP POLL Extra, International Language Favored as Aid to World Peace PRINCETON, X. J. A SUBSTANTIAL majority of American voters is in favor of adopting an international language that would be understood in all countries. This language would be taught to school children, in atldiiion to their own tongue. Americans who favor the idea think the United Nations should appoint a committee to study various languages and select one to use as an international medium of expression to promote better understanding among nations and further the success of a world organization for peace. The views of the country were sounded on the question: "Should the school children in all countries be required io learn, in addition to their own language, some, one language, which would be understood in all countries so that people of every nation could understand each other better J" Yes No 11 1- Those in favor of the idea were asked whether the United Nations should take some concrete step toward this goal: "Do you think the Untied Nations should appoint a group to Scientists Have Looked Into Valley of Death and Found Their Voices By HARLOW SHAPLEY Director of the Harvard college observatory, in a recent address OUR LEADING American scientists, especially our physicists, are almost pathologically conservative and universally cautious by nature and training. But they have looked into the valley of death and suddenly their voices have come to them. Daily these scientists are protesting against legislative inanity, against the futility of saber-rattling, and pointing to the necessity of one world or none. They are trying to tell you the following facts: We reached the solution of the explosive release of atomic energy first, but by a narrow margin. Atomic bombs are so revolutionary, when coupled with rocketry, radar-control and the like, that they make obsolete both those philosophies and those techniques of warfare and of national defense that heretofore prevailed. The effectiveness of destruction has been increased by a factor of ten million to one, when measured by the energy considerations. City-killing missiles, in a brief few years from now, may arrive from any direction and from any distance on the surface of this planet, with accuracy and anonymity. A tremendous navy is not necessary to propel them, and a billion 18-year-old boys marching around with guns would avail nothing. There is and can be no effective defense against the atomic bombs only against the sources of the bombs. These sources are human, and the solution we seek must be on the human not the mechanical level.

French Music Maker Notable as a Politician From News From Belgium THE BELGIAN composer Andre Ernest Modeste Gretry had such confidence in his fellow men that he is quoted as having said once: "I wonder if there are any means of pleasing ev erybody." Usually people who start on that basis end up by pleasing nobody, but Gretry apparently nearly fulfilled his program. When the regime of Louis XVI was endangered, the offi cers of the palace guard of Versailles sane the aria from "Rich ard Coeur de Lion," his most solid work, "O Richard, o mon Roi. 1' univers t' abandonnp" (Oh, Richard, oh my king, the world ahandons thee). But after the French revolution had triumphed, Gretry composed the oratorio celebrating the victory of the proletari at over the privileged classes. He had been the cynosure of the court; Marie Antoinette had liked his compositions; his arias also pleased the Trotskys of his latter days. Robespierre, who was certainly no will-o'-the- wisp, admired his music. He found an almost perfect expression of his artistic credo in Jean Jacques Rousseau's pro nouncement: "Music is the art of assembling sounds in a man ner agreeable to the ear." His contemporaries were lav ish in their praise. They called him the musical Moliere, the genius of comic opera incarnate, the king, the god of comic opera. WALLACE R. DEUEL UNO Tolice Force' Bill Nears Passage WASHIXGTOX. THE SENATE is considering a bill which has at least an even chance to leave the arena alive, perhaps actually in triumph. This bill is the first of two which will show, if they are passed, that America really meant business when it joined the United Nations organization. The first has four main provisions: 1. It calls for appointment of American delegates to the UNO. 2. It provides that America will take part in an economic hlock- ade of countries found guilty of aggression by the UNO security council. 3. It authorizes the President to use America's contingent of the UNO "world police force" to back up security council decisions. 4. It authorizes the President to take the first step toward deciding the size and sort of contingent which America will contribute to this "world police force." The President is to do this by negotiating an agreement with the other members of the security council regulating each member's contribution to the "police force." The agreement will have io be approved by congress. Criticism of the bill has been of two main kinds: One group of senators thinks the bill goes too far. Another thinks it doesn't go far enough. Those who think the bill goes too far say the UNO will try to enforce a peace settlement that neither can nor should be enforced. In doing this, the UNO will drag the United States into troubles which do not concern this country, and American blood and treasure will be wasied. Th is will be all the more liable to happen because in the present bill congress is abdicating its war-making power to the President, these senators say. Senators, who think the bill does not go far enough argue I SEE BY THE TRIBUNE MINNEAPOLIS MARRIAGE IJCENSK APPLICATIONS Abraham S. Mirhalxun. It-gal. rt.

ALL THE MONEY WENT TO HIS X From Maqaiine Digest A BUSINESS MAN had to sign his checks with two X's. He mnde a lot of money, and one day the cashier of his bank noticed a check with three X's signed to it. Not being sure whether he should honor the draft, he called the man. "I have a check here signed with three X's," he said. "It looks like yours, but I wasn't sure." "Yes, It's mine. aP. right," said the other. "It's okay." "But tell me, what's the Idea of signing three X's?" "Why not? Can't I take a middle name?" the UNO itself is too weak to do the things it was set up to do. Therefore, UNO must be greatly strengthened before much good will be accomplished by America's taking a full part in it. At the very least, the unanimity rule ought to be abolished in the security council, these men argue. Neither of these two kinds of critics seems likely to prevent passage of the bill in substantially its present form." Senators who think it does not go far enough say they will support it anyway as a step in the right direction. Gnlda Lenora Todd from Robert Lincoln Todd. Todd. I.vdia Bishop from W Word A. Bishop.
