Victory for State Rights The decision of the Arkansas Supreme Court Wednesday -.upholding the constitutionality of Act 107 of the 1945 legislature is a victory for shite rights against the right of the federal | government to dictate lo states how they shall hold their elections. Act 107 v;as passed by the General j Assembly to comply with a decision > of the Federal Court prohibiting racial 1 discnniinatior; at the polls in elections | where . fed era. 1 offices were lo be filled. i The act also was passed with the ! idea.fon the part of the legislators that I the state should be allowed to run its f elections for state, district, and county j officials in the manner prescribed by i laws of long striding, and under j party regulations which recite who I CM,, and who cannot, vote in a pri- ( mary. i| The Supreme Court opinion written I by Associate Justice Frank G. Smith j states thr.t the court is "concerned not i with ills wisdom of the legislation but in whether the legislature had the right to separate the federal offices from the others in the holding of party prim?ries." The. coi rt held that the legislature has the right to make the separation. '. And the decision was reached by unanimous decider; of the court. A similar ruling by the United States Supreme court would make the victory for states in the battle of states rights versus federal control of nation-wide importance. Toward a Negative Equality In comnifcniing- of the Big Four deadlock over 'iJ.cste, Georges Bidault, the French foreign minister, made a remark which, though depressing and a little puzzling, is at the same time curiously illuminating. "What we really are seeking," he said, f'is an equality of dissatisfaction." Thus is seems that the firm resolution, tentative conc/>;' hot words and cold logic expn • •j SKIon > four meetings of the foreign.4 .. ln ..''.,/.;.—. -—. _!__/<!' ministers I'l'fyJjT have not even brought them to a jwint where they can agree to disagree. This is Discouraging news for the whole world. But it is probably to be expected in what is surely one of the most perilous and unpredictable periods of peace in history. And at the moment there seems no solution except to continue the search of which M. Hitlaull spoke. "Equality of dissatisfaction" is easier to comprehend generally than to explain precisely. But it must mean a sort if negative compromise in which opposing objections can be brought near enough to a state of balance .to permit it step toward active, positive, co-operation. So far Ku.ssin's dissatisfaction has seemed to be complete in all matters t)f international discussion, large and small. The American and British altitudes were for time more pliable. They seemed to be motivated by an earnest desire for free and friendly association, and mi agreement for pcoce and harmony on a .supra-national plane which would not interfere too greatly with present domestic concepts and practices. Hut concession found Russia as adamant and demanding a.s ever. Then our diplomacy took a turn toward what has been described, aptly if over- Rim ply, as a policy of "getting tough with Russia." Maybe that is somewhat the same thing as M. Bidault's more polite "equality of dissatisfaction." This was an almost inevitable countermove to match a Russian diplomacy which seems born of a desire for "one world" of Russian design. Even international matters of passing importance are, to such a diplomacy, reflections of a drift toward or away from that "one world." Thus nothing is insignificant, in the Big • Four or United Nations meetings. Every indication of a deviation from the Russian design must be challenged and combatted. It !»„ Becoming increasingly clear ihtit the defeat of fascism settled bnly one profound political question. Two others remain: Must the world be dominated either by communistic dictatorship or constitutional democracy, or can both governmental systerna exist in a friendly, peaceful world? On those questions an equali^v, dissatisfaction may already .)*;»/ exist.

'•^ogress toward that affirmative iiswcr will continue to be slow and ^painful and disheartening, barring an immediate miracle. There may even be a complete, precarious standstill. But eventually the journey must be resumed. And if the world is to be saved it must bo along the road of tolerance and freedom.

"She's got a bad case of internitis. She's gone completely goofy over our irresistible Doctor Kildare and I say devoully: 'God help her!' She hasn't as much chance there as a mushroom in one of Mrs. Billings' rug- outs or whatever she calls them. And while we're on the subject of food," she went on, "my stomach is empty. Let's go out somewhere and eat." Maynard for a moment before the i;ivl hastily turned to senrcli fur something in her desk.

May of Prcston- ^, J^Tty.. chairman of the House Viflitary committee, because of his (claying tuctlcs. May is supposed to have agreed but his committee would okay the bill as passed by the Senate, then eck House Rules Committee ap- jroval tor permitting amendments o be offered from the floor. It was believed that this would speed .ip action. When the House Military Affairs Committee met to consider the bill, iiowever, Chairman May said, "\Vc will now proceed to read.the bill." Well, the bill Is 46 pages IOLIK. H consists of 20 sections, each about as important, over the long hr.ul. as anything that will be done by Congress this year. The congressmen proceeded to examine it line by line, taking their own .sweet time. In the first week of intense cerebral fissioning, the committee tot through only seven sections.

Chiules H, Cluson of Massachusetts, J. Parncll 'Iliomns of New Jersey, Thomas E. Martin of Iowa, Pan! Shnfcr of Michigan, and Charles H. Elston of Ohio. Democrats Ewtng Thomason of Texas, John J. Spurk- man of Alabama, and Chet Hola- field of California, with Republican Leslie c. Arends of Illinois, want to get the bill out bnt arfi helpless while reading the bill Is in the .H'dor of business under Chairman May's ruling. The result is that a whole flock of amendments arc in the innkliv.' which may well start a long fight, on the floor of the House, require long conference with the Senate to iron out differences, and delay the bill Interminably If not wreck It completely. If there is no action before Congress goes home in miri- July, things atomic are apt to b:: in a terrible mess. Sections of the McMahon bill which the House committee is considering for amendment include not only Ihc milling of a represeiita- ive of the armed services back on the five-man atomic clingy commission, the provision about which there has been most discussion. >lso at stake arc the llcens'.n- and patent arrangements, the Fact Lhat the govtn-nment would hav< monopoly control of manufacturing, and the fact that private enterprise would not be able lo take over the future of atomic energy and develop it in its own way. ng. "A man I know was lost the Pacific area at the beginning of Iho war. Nothing has been heard of him sLnce. That's nil." All!" cried Dora. "You left out the best part — the only part that counts.
