Ri'ght now all America scorns to l>u divided into two camps. On one side the President is besieged with roqiicslK to sign the Case bill and make it a law to save the nation from labor leaders who are actinif more like racketeers than saviors of the working man. . On the other side wo find the labor bosses and their henchmen in the legislative halls of the nation seeking to influence the jKinple's representatives who are friendly toward labor. News items in an issue of the Courier News this week told of action by the Hlylhcville Kiwanis Club, and the Memphis Chamber of Commerce urging the nation's chief executive to place his stamp of approval on the Case bill. It provides definite curbs on labor ' but is not HO powerful as the curbs recommended by President Truman in a recent message to Congress. These organizations are to be commended for their interest in the matter. Their interest, and the interest of the individuals throughout the land, is important to the functioning of a democracy in a wholly democratic way. . .:.. The sumo could bo said if the expressions had been on the other side of the issue for the democratic way is the rule of the majority, provided a majority shows enough interest to de.. tcrm.ina what is best in the way of legislation for the whole of the nation —not just best for labor, or best for capital. One can hardly sanction, though, the disgraceful display in Washington where petition packers are pouring the names of coiiKivssiiien into the- While House who, want the Case bill signed, or those wlio \vat:l the bill vetoed. Did not these lawmakers indicate their stand whei: they voted on the bill? They voted for, and against it and the ayes \von. Thai should In' sufficient' and the matter, insofar as the lawmakers are concerned, left in the hands of the President will) his mind free to use his own best judgment.. With the rank and file of taxpayers, the mallei' is different. They have no other opportunity to offer assistance in matter of interest to them. The legislators should be willing to stand on tln>jr record. Too often we find legislators voting one way and then pli'adinj; a cause different lo I hat which they parade before their constituents through the Congressional record.

Margaret Adams was beside her. The i-.vo had visited for a moment as they stood before the bulletin hoard exchanging items of news. Norma liolden hurried from the elevator and paused for a glance at the board then with a bare "Hi!" went on down the hall. Jim Hallock, senior interne, came in from a rear door and Norma greeted him with laughing en- .imisiasm. Apparently her ardor was not shared by the young man for he passed with a casual nod, aud dashed into chapel a'heafl of her. Margaret said nothing. Sally •vos sure she wouldn't. Margaret never gossiped and Sally admired her for it as well as for other Irnits that had made her loved and respected by the entire staff.

With all the demand there is for higher-priced housing and commercial structures, there is tremendous pressure to divert building materials away from the low-cost veterans' housing. That, is resjxin- siblc for most of the black market. Over and over the story is told of builders sttuling a house, Ihen not being able to find furnace or bathtub to complete it. In the search for missing parts, the builder has to be held np on the black market.. This is principally OPA's problem, and its Compliance Section has not been too successful in licking it. OFA's Huilding ami Construction Price Division has granted over 100 price increases to encourage production of scarce building materials.get supply closer to demand, and so eliminate the need A Cltll'ri.KlAn'A WOULD IIOOM THE HI.ACK MARKET If OPA is seriously crippled by new price control .extension laws now liefore Congress, the black market in building materials will get worse. There arc now IB critically short building materials on which HH (housing) priorities assistance is given by local offices of the Federal Housing Administration. Priorities s-.ssistance is given to channel these scarce materials into low- cost housing under the vets' program. These are houses and apartments of which approximately half will sell for S7500 or less or vent for SliO a month or less. This priorities assistance has been j granted for 500.000 new units and fiO.OOO existing units beini; convert- ' ed and modernized. There is a ecr- , lain amount of inflation in these, authorizations, because there are; enough materials to complete all units started. The rate of is.iiini: priorities assistanee is. there>Me. lieing cut down in .June. HI A has just issued new regulil- ions for triple Inspect ion of construction on which prioviiies assistance has been grantrd. Builders A ho misuse priorities will have their future rights lo assistance withdrawn, and they will be sub- to civil and criminal court ac- ! lion. About 12 of the 18 scarce materials i,vill probably be declared eligible for premium payment assis- lance, or subsidies. In simple lerms. the idea is lo pay a bonus for extra production of items in short supply. The mechanics of how the SltW.OOiT.OOO incentive money will be paid out, will be announced shortly.

Further restrictions on the us of new materials are written int the veterans' housim; law. New ma terials must avoid "adverse effect upon established business."
