President Trunian delivered A momentous address in the form of a special message to Congress in which he demanded legislation to curb labor racketeers. "''He got what he asked for in the House of Representatives and obtained it quickly^ The senators did some doctoring -on his legislative ultimatum, and before they, finished with hjs bill they passed the Case bill, which too w'as* "''designed to deal some misery to recalcitrant labor. The President vetoed the Case bill and' renewed His declaration for the need for : his bill as it was presented tc tlje lawmakers, and not in the form in which it was sent back to the House fpf approval of amendments which eliminated the. possible drafting of labor in strikes against the government. -« The President's speech, ' did not solve anything. Nor did the appeasing ways of (he government when it took over the strike-bound transportation lines and the coal mines and started dealing with the union bosses. The government raised the pay of ('he' workers and in the same week raised the price of coal so that everybody now is happy except the consumer. Nothing has been solved in the way of eliminating causes for labor qhrest, and nothing has been legislat- £rl to prevent further strikes from striking an even harder blow unless it -is the Hobbs bill which the Senate parsed last week after allowing a lapse of four years following House approval of this measure. The House members who so boldly gave the President what he asked for in the way of a weapon with which to deal with labor now seems perfectly content to let this must-legislation of a month ago rest undisturbed in a '.'pigeon-hole of the House rules committee." ; The issue is as important today as it was when the President's demands were made and won for him applause from the masses throughout the nation. Some in the House suggest the t he- President has lost interest measure. Perhaps he has. Hut if he has lost interest so quickly, (he next time ho cries "Wolf, Wolf," to the nation his cries probably will be as effective us those ;of the little boy in the fairy tale who was watching the sheep and under instructions to call for help only when help was needed. Electricity and Oniops A Courier News editorial jhe other day mentioned trans-Atlantic! passenger fares and onions as two itxims in a, class by themselves in this I postwar period by reason of the fact that both items arc cheaper now than b.'fore the war. Bringing the comment donor home, although onions sometimes get too close to home, we are reminded that postwar electricity rates in Bilytheville and vicinity arc lower, too, man they were a few weeks ago. The current billings by the power company arc based on the reduced rates. f Views of Others Buying a House? / "Before you hay. irmkcr sure [ tile house Is worth Uiu' price." If homc-seckcrs were to follow lilcmlly this iidvlcc of the Nnlloiml Housing Agency, there would bo few. if any, houses pur- chiiscd In this seller's nmrkc't. But In Its new pamphlet on home huyiiig, the Agency gives a needed warning ntul some sound advice. "Rcnie.mber—that oven utter four or five ycnrs of paynuTnts on mi Inflated house you mny still owe more than tt.s normal vnluc." ThiU con] ndd up to thousands of hours of toll merely to Iced inlliuMon'N hungry m»w. To families desperate for living space, II imiy seem worth the price. 11 so, n.s NI1A points out, the prospec- Ih'c home should be npprnlBed. nnd consideration give" to design, construction, neighborhood, nnd future family needs. , Veterans, under the Emergency Housing pro-' einin nnd lo:m provisions of the O. I. Hill of nights, arc given « fuir degree of protection nenlhst unwise purcluiscs. Hales and rental housing for veternns built with priority assistance is required to conform to minimum space, arrangement, nnd construction standards, and !o price mnximiuns. On the other hand, the O. I. benefits themselves tend to nnikc home buying too eiisy lor those who ordinarily would not assume the burden of home ownership for many years. There needs to be far more realistic weighing of carrying and operational costs against prospective income. Doubling-up of families, one-room living, and other present hardships are not easy to endure. But building Is going on, for both rental and sale, and the situation .should start to case before very long. Remembering that nearly one million families lost their homes in the crash Rfler the last war's inflation period, the motto would seem to be: Watt if you possibly can.

The way Marcia Beach described her intention of devoting her life to nursing made her sound like a prig or an obnoxious misogamist. That wasn't true. She didn't object to love and marriage for others. It was only that her love was given to her work—to helping people. Was that such a strange, unheard-of career? But somehow, as she walked away from 327, she was unaccountably depressed. "I'm not particularly proud of you, Sally Maynard," she 'told herself as she leaned against the wide parapet surrounding the roof garden on three sides. No patients were out here at this hour and Sally drank in the beautjf of the spring day. breathing deeply of the. delectable fragrance of mingled newly turned sod and fresh growing things. How silly of her to let the happiness of Marcia Beach upset her; for she franklj acknowledged that it was jealousy of Ihe other's radiant joy that had sent her self-satisfaction tumbling from its pedestal. . "f>h, here you are!" a voici called. "Gosh, what luck! 1'vi been looking all over the piao for^you. The chief is up in the al ever this suggested wedding o your patient in 327? Hov,> come? "Then'-Lieutenant -Allison sa\ hilfi about it? And Miss Sunder lin?" 'At" his'nod she went on that's all there is to very easy on the throat muscles." Sally said nothing and he sighed deeply. "It could quite simply be a double wedding. I'll willingly provide the extra groom—if you'll be the bride. Sally." "Don't be ridiculous! And 1 don't think the idea the least bit unny." "Heaven forbid!" he suit! softly. I never said it was in the least unny." * * * 'T'HEN stop saying svtrli preposterous things," the ried, nnd turned away, starling 0 leave the roof. He caught hci and and drew her close to his idv. "What's, got into you lately 5al!y Maynard?" he demanded efusing to let her go. "You're as ouchy as the fever patient in 218 Tou said you didn't hale me larling—you did too—1 heard •ou," as she shook her head vio- cntly. "You told Maggie Adam — Oh, for Pete's sake, Saliy, b 1 little kind to me. I like yoi •uch a lot and honestly I'm not a bad guy. \S'hy can't we be friend: —at least? I ask you. Dnry thi hatchet and all that." He gave he little shake as they reached th«_ ;xit and whispered, his lips close Lo hers: "Promise? Be a pood gir and— Oh, my darling!" His arm enfolded her and his eager nioiitl came down on hers. For a Ion moment Sally, too astonished an shaken to move, remained ciuic in his arms. Then with a littl cry of bewilderment and hurt si tore herself from his embrace an ran—refusing to listen to h pleading.

S. consumers today Is, "Why did. i;oni;ress do whnt it is doing to OPA?" The .meaning of the question is Ilia'- no one in his right mnd can understand why the lawmakers—faced with threats of continuing scarcities. rising prices spiraling into inlla- ion, nnd anoGier tornado of strikes —would dare .vote ayainst. continued irice control du the eve of 6lec- lon. Congressmen nnd the price con- ,rol experts who have watched thi.s battle through the war years haw rcnllstic politienl solution to this riddle of why OPA is upparcaU; being killed by mutilation InslKiii of being allowed to die a nutuni. death. In simple politienl lingo, OPA is inig crushed under a lot of loss.

UE1-UBL1CANS AND HKMOCKATS "GANGED UP" ON OP.V In tracing the political maneuvering which produced this result, one fact stands out. It \vas not entirely Republican opposition that killed off the Democratic administration program to hold down >h" cost of living for another year. Tile Democrats in Congress arc Just as much to blame for this sabotage ns arc the Republicans. The trouble began in the s->lid Democratic South. It began when Chester Bowles, as Price Administrator, declared it might be necessary to put a ceiling price on raw cotton. It was int.rnsllicd wien BoiUcs put new trading regulations on the cotton exchanges. They ",oro intended lo curb speculation, but they hart I ho effect of holding down the price of raw cotton. Political ride number one in !h'.' cotton belt, is thai no candidate for office can face his voters it lie has at any time done anything lo prevent the price of cotton !iom going up. The South may have HMC- 1 party dominance, but it nlr.o has "-oit,, h™ competition in the ini- naries. Any congressman who ap- oved OPA after llowSrs nniiomu'- d lib new cotton policies would have been committing political s\:i- :ide.
