Two Separate Jobs Ship owners are asking Congress for pel-mission to go into the air transport, •field. They argue thai British competitors are going to supplement their surface services with air schedules, and that Americans will be left at a great disadvantage unless they are permitted to do likewise. *; It is easy to imagine that the ship owners wouki benefit from such a dual setup. 'But to* the layman it seems improbable that joint ship-plane operation :is the only solution, the best solution, or even -a- desirable solution to the really puzzling, problem that faces our postwar merchant marine. : 1 Without belittling the great import- •'-.aiice of maintaining our hard-won po- ; sjtion of primary importance on the '•high' spas, it _is vital also that \vc play ; a; major part in the coming Air Age. ''And our share in world aviation surely cannot be protected best by turning its development over, in any considerable part, -to; a competing' industry. '. '1 Transoceanic air lines arc in direct competition with surface shipping. Bc- •fpre the war the competition was limit- .ed to .-luxury passengers and midget packages. After tho war, aviation experts-hope, the planes will be able to : go after passengers well below the lux- " 5 U'ry class,, and to carry packages of ; greater; bulk and weight. •'3- Advancement in transoceanic aviation" achieved economically, and . ipade'cqnipetitively self-supporting, only if posUvar 'aviation is in the hands of experts whose fortunes and reputations {yre staked upon their achievements in 1 that one field. : . ' . * ". 'Neither railroads nor steamship lines should be given any major part in the development of aviation. Planes will compete. directly with both, and Anier" ican history has shown that such competition is the secret of greatest suc- . cessi sport .? Somebody is always taking (lie joy out of life. Now it is Dr. J. Parker Van Zandt, one lime consultant' to the CAB, .'who.says. that, the North Pole is not 'going to'bccoinc the crossroads of inter- ijationaj'.air travel. ' .* One of our solapes, in these drear 'and sultry weeks, has been the supposition that, as soon as the war was won, we could hop into a plane any day from any. place and know that it would stop in at the Pole, where we could, at will, ; Stop ovei^for a cool rest and a bit of sWing, skating, sliding, snowshoeing or perhaps modeling snowmen. ; What's the use of ending the, war, if we can't go to tho Pole without hiring an air taxi ? ; Wherever he hulls iro-n. the American displays gumption, a pricclciB quality developed through the essential ctetcssness of clcnvwallc iiislll.uUons.-Dr. George D. Stoddard. N. Y. commissioner of education. BLYTHEVILLg, ('ARK.); POUBIBB NEWfl Finnish Relations Most Americans must liavc felt at least some regret when the popular minister of a popular little country, Hjalmar Procopc, was handed his walking papers by the State Department. But the step cannot have surprised at alert a diplomat as Mr. Procope, who had full access to the invasion news in American papers. \Vc are committed now to the march to Berlin. As fast as new openings can be developed, we must be in position to advance on Germany from every direction. We cannot permit ourselves to be stymied by relations with any nation, however much wo pity her, that is fighting sidc-by-side with the Nam against our allies. Presumably the request that Mr. Procope go home may be taken by his principals as warning that from now on, unless she gets out of the war, she is liable to find herself in the path of mi American juggernaut. What—No Beer? New Jersey lias been experiencing an acute shortage of beer, in the midst of extremely hot weather, because of strikes in .seven breweries. Thirsty citi- xens have had to walk several blocks for their drinks. Germany, .we understand, also is having troubles. The world's most ardent beer drinkers probably would consider themselves in luck if they could be in New Jersey, even' now. Comment Having counted several hundreds, then waited several days, we have cooled off enough to comment objectively about the '117 grinders who slopped working on Superfortresses motors one day after the B-29 raid on Japan was announced. If one of those men was our brother, we should close the door of our home to him and erase his name from the family Bible. That, we hope, would better indicate our feeling than the physical or economic chastisements that first suggested themselves. But, incidentally, we would also fire all 117, and ban them .forever from war work, and refuse them any public assistance of any sort.

"Hey called. soldier!" Jackson Valentino." he says. the egg cell from which a. whole grows Is only twice as large as that which, pioduccs a mouse. Pinky looked up, recognized the darky who had come to town, walking the tracks, the day before. "Oh, hello." "What's the matter with, you?" "Oh, 1 don't know," 1'inky groaned. Jackson leaned on the gatepost, and grinned, "Say, I know \vhafd fix you up!" He showed Pinky the white cardboard lunch box he was carrying. "You'd better get yourself a box like this, and come on out to the Picnic Grounds with me! No more troubles then ... live in clover put there!" . "I'm not ready yet." ".No? How come?" Pinky was about ready to make an irritable remark, but then he looked again at Jackson. No, you couldn't be irritable with a guy like that. Broad smile, with all that gleaming white showing. Pinky sighed faintly. "I guess maybe you were never married." "What's that got to do with it? 1 • "Or had a child." ' "Is that what's bluein' you up?' > "That and my wife." • "What's the matter? She chcatin on you? 1 ' "Oh, no, don't say things like that." "Well, I just thought . . . mine s!" Jackson beamed proudly. 'Wearin' black, though—<toin' me credit. Sure makes a right good-lookin' widow, too. I ain't even buried yet and already she's >lock away. They were marching n formation, their heavy boots iounding loudly. Those who hart ivcd here for a long time had often heard the sound and knew vhat it was, but Emily, hearing it is she was just on her way downstairs, dashed out quickly. They were all in German uni- orm, marching two abrenst anrl ed by a lieutenant. Emily and inky looked at each oilier, rec- steppin' that?" around. Can you beat Pinky was puzzled. "How would she know yet what happened to you?" "H happened while I was on furlough. Car." "Oh." "Glad she is like that. Saves me the trouble ot hangin' around lere." "How do you mean?" "Well, sec, if she was sorrowin', I'd probably he sorrowin', too, and <oep lookin' back. But the way it is . . ." he shrugged contentedly. "Then if you're ready to go on, why don't you go?" "Well, I'll tell you." Jackson reached into his pocket, drew out a roll of bills. "1 got a liny little bit of chanfc in my pocket, see. And they tell me it won't do me no good out at the Picnic Grounds, sec ... everything Tree out there . . so I thought before I'd go, I'd get rid of it." With an easy graceful gesture he tossed a pair of dice on the gravel. "See?" Pinky smiled faintly: "Never heard of anyone playing to lose before.'' "Well, if I win, I slick around a while . . . sec?" Pinky declined the invitation. "Besides, I don't have any money.' "What's the matter with this town? Ain't nobody got nothin'!' "Why don't you try the Square?

Emily jeered deeper into the line. 'There's Rion, too—look!" "Step aside," the lieutenant ordered Jackson. "Who says so?" "Step aside, you black swine!" Jackson paled and stepped back. All the smiling beauty seemerl to lave gone out of him, as he shrank >aclc against the fence. 'Rion! Hello, Rion!" Emily called. Eyes straight ahead, Ition moved on with the others. The sound reached its climax, then began dying away as the soldiers reached :hc corner, crossed over into the Sqparc. * * * pINKY sat down on Ihc slcps again. Emily moved down to the fence, to the colored soldier. "You shouldn't have lei him push you aside like that." Jackson turned and looked at her. "Look, I got a liny little bit of change here. Give it to the white boy over there, for his kid, start a bank account. I'm leavin', see. It won't be like that anyway out at the Big Valley." He handed the roll to her. "So long, lady. Goodby, white boy." , De Lawd's shiny-blnck housed?! keeper, Rose, came hurrying down the slrcel after him. "Jackson, I just found out," she wailed, "you took a picnic box!" "Yes, ma'am, I'm goin'!" "But, Jackson, you and DC Lawd Is just gelling acquainted." "I'll be seein' him. Tell him to look me up when he comes out there." "Oh, Jackson." She stood still, sadly watching him go away from her. "So long, Rose. he called.
