Tlic idea of having incentives for this and that may be a good one but \vhcn the taxpayer has to pay it to get bread and butter and plywood and countless other things, it narrows down to something that borders on the ridiculous, and becomes a burden. Eventually the government should get around to making incentive payments to housewives who visit the corner grocery, or the roerehiint downtown, and to her husband who provides (lie cash with which to make the purchases that are necessary to daily living in a modest sort of way. Incentive payments, according to the theorists, are based on need, and .Hie need of the buyer is becoming more 'and more apparent every day. That is, Unless the buyer happens to bo the one who. collected incentive payments somewhere up or down the line, or unless ho labors under the protective arms of the big labor bosses and has hi-jacked a'raise from his employers via the gov- ;eniment seixure route after having •walked off the job. Let's start ;l campaign for incen- ;tive payments for everybody. Anything • less is unfair. BLYTHEVILLE (ARK,) C.QUR1KR NEWS Now You're Talking! Stabilisation Director Bowles bas -proposed that labor renew its wartime ; no-strike pledge until production can 'get going. Now you're talking, Chester, • and saying what some of the rest of us • have been suggesting for some time. And if you can get that pledge, Chester, and Congress doesn't catch 'the implications, we wouldn't mind seeing you make another trip to Capitol Hill and arrange a deal with the gcn- .tfemen whereby they would retain M>nce controls while labor stuck to the •task of turning out all the things that General Duty M/ue By LUCY AGNES HANCOCK all of us arc needing. You might also drop in at Of'A and see about breaking some of those bottleneck regulation^ which are holding ui) production. Then we might really be on our way out of this dreary maze of shortages and black markets in which we have been wandering for far too long.

Can Uncle Snm BO Ills unrestrained way uunffcctccl by the fact Hint most other nalionn are compelled to continue strict, controls? Congress apparently feels so or it would not be proceeding with the decapitation of the Price Control Act. Yet Acting Secretary of Stale Dean Acheson has warned that weakening of the Act will make It Impossible for Hie Government to fulfill Its plcrtBcs for food to Europe and Asia.

Could it be that you have die wrong GIseU Werbiseck Piffle?" We thought it W ns just a Ban. but nay we. too, have talked to sela Werbiscck Piffle. She's a charming, gray-haired lady who once starred on the Vienna .singe, fled to the U. s. with her huslnnd when Hitler took oifr Austria, and has worked In the movies ever since. "In Europe," GlselJ told us, "1 was funny. My name was not funny." "She was the Marie Dressier ol Europe," her husband John Plfllc, .siiid. "She was a Irmale Charlie Chaplin." C7iscla has her best role to date, she said, in the Arno\ Prcssburgcr movie "A Randal in Paris." Oisela likes t o rave fiin .vith her name.
