It is going to be a long, hard debate on atomic energy plans because the Russians have no intention of giving up their demands that the veto apply to any punishment of violators. A weakness in the position taken by the State Department and Mr. Baruch is beginning to become clear and this is the failure to obtain1 an expression of Congressional opinion on the subject of abolition of the veto.

A CHANCE TOWARD CHINA James D. White of the Associated Press offered an interesting interpretation on China thq other day that appears to be gaining support. He felt that there was some deliberate calculation behind the latest student demonstrations against the United States. Previously the government had acted quickly in such incidents, especially in Shanghai where the Communists are strong. This time the government did no such thing. There were even examples of toleration, in addition to inaction. The Peiping police failed to co-operate in the alleged assault case, according to U.S. Marine authorities, and now the Chinese News Service (an official government agency) circulates a news story of the demonstrations Which refers to the woman in the case as a"20-rear-old Chinese girl." According to U.S. Marine Corps headquarters, this is scarcely an accurate reference. The service also says that "io untoward incidents occurred as the demonstrators conducted themselves in an orderly manner,' a statement which is at variance with American news agencies. What does all this mean? Mr. White infers that it is in reaction to President Truman's recent statement that the $500,000,000 Ameri can credit will be available as soon as con-; ditions in China are stabilized. The Chinese Government now is indicating how easily anti-American forces and Chinese Communists might become predominant if United States aid is withheld. This may be a somewhat strained interpretation of the facts, not all of which are available in the news- reports. But it "is certain that a change is occurring in Chinese-American relations. Deference of our large credit serves notice on the Chinese Government that its efforts to produce stable internal conditions must be speeded. Otherwise, American loans can not be used constructively. The hope is that this tactic will diminish the area of disagreement between the gov-emmenjt and the Chinese Communists through reform and concession; and the k test moves of the government in Nanking are not likely to have a favorable reception in this countrv. TKE MAP CHANCES More trouble for the map-makers and geo-- graphy students: the Soviet Government is changing names again. Tilsit becomes Sovetsk, Insterburg is Chernyakovsky, and Pillauis Baltiisk under the newest Russian decree' regarding the Soviet Union's portion of pre-war German East Prussia.

NATIONAL WHIRLIGIG By RAY TUCKER - WASHINGTON, Jan. 6. How the Eightieth. Republican-controlled Congress behaves may j make 'pt break President, Truman! chance ;pf re-election, and seriously; affect his party's immediate and long-range future. But the new majority on Capitol Hill can also improve cr destroy its present prospect to regain control of the White, House in 1948. : I i ' As the political economists view r the present scene, the responsibility of preserving current , prpspe.ritjr' through the next few years, as well as insuring its continuance for some years' thereafter, rests on the G.OP' Congress fully as much as it does n the White House. p DECLINE IN COSTS j President Truman's closest advisers profess satisfaction with th 1947-1948 picture, despite the general belief that next yearwill bring a recession lasting from three ito nine months. ! They anticipate at lejft a twenty per cent decline in living costs through next year, including a drop in the price of luxuries. as welllss in necessities like food, furniture, etc. Mounting production in thfe fields, more careful consumer habits and a normal leveling-off of a peak, post-war market are, counted on to force a betted balance between prices and wages. The price slump, together With the satisfaction of customer's waftts. will cause some unemployment in' consumer goods industries, distributing centers, retail circles and n the service trades. This1 phenomenon is what the economists have : tn mind when they forecast a "1947 recession." , No more than ten per cent tt th prophets, however, look for a '1929 crash." They liken coming coadi- 19J-1922 slump which (followed the 1917-1920 war 'boom 'and preceded the era. of "Coo'lidge ! prosperity."

While the Senate has never excluded a member because Negroes were prevented from vot- election Smith of Illinois was denied the oath. Vare of Pennsylvania was declared not entitled to a seat . In respect to Governor Wright's view that his state should be let alone to deal vith the Negroes, this is clearly an unsound and emotional reaction. No Southern state can be per- i agar. Bilbo's prejudices, by this time, may be increased to the point he believes Republicans and Northern Democrats should not be allowed a vote in the Senate. These are we spell it, the week-ends when 'traffic wreckord." When you think of Pearl Harbor bear in mind that, on the other hand, we sen the first juke boxes to Japan. Be patient and allow Congress That was true of farm land prices after the! First World War. It was true of the stock! market in 1929, and in 1937 and 1946. It might well be true of farm land prices again. The Department of Agriculture for some time has been issuing warnings against inflated farm land prices. In mid-December Secretary Anderson pointed out that they had risen, on the average, 14 per cent during the last 12 months alone. They are now only about 10 per Cent below the 1920 peak from land the State Legislature time to ii , ' , . iwina up me taiKing maenme. which the drop was so disastrous to thou- sands and thousands of farmers.

Tn faM (vent the corks blowing out on so the department predicts a continued rise in j the first part of 1947. It is the latter part of the yar that a decline is expected. The ultimate is being in a feverish hurrj' to go from one place to another for no reason whatsoever is exemplified by a young squirt driving a jeep. : But both cases involve national interest and Federal laws and constitutional provisions, all of which are superior legally and politically to the state of Mississippi.

I wouldn't mind the increased ' Merritt Park. L feel ..that 1 "must"' a necklace of lights for the It would 'seem that the first the Bilbo and Mississippi's Sovereignty Bilbo and the sovereignty of Mississippi. Senator Ellender of Louisiana is quoted in the Washington Post as paying the Bilbo case is a "shameful attempt to interfere with the sovereign rights of the State of Mississippi." That is a serious accusation, and if the senator can sustain it, then not only should Bilbo be seated, but the Senate should offer its humble apologies for all the trouble to which two committees of the Senate have subjected him. But, as a matter of fact. Senator Ellender is himself the chairman of one of the two committees that have investigated - Bilbo. Presumably, then, it was not an interference with the sovereign rights of the State of Mississippi to inquire into the charges that in the primaries and in the ejection Bilbo violated the Federal Constitution, the Fed eral Crime Code, and the Hatch Act. NO INTERFERENCE The committee which investigated these charges consisted of five senators. Three of them, Mr. Ellender himself, Mr. Elmer Thomas of Oklahoma, and Mr. Maybank of South Carolina, decided after hearing the evidence that Bilbo "had ibeen duly and legally, elected to represent the State of Mississippi." Two of them, Miv Bridges of New Hampshire and . Mr. Hickenlooper of Iowa, decided after shearing the evidence that Bilbo's credentials are tainted "with f raud-; and corruption." All that a majority of the Senate has done is to deny Bilbo a seat until the whole Senate can decide whether it agrees with Messrs. Ellender, Thomas and Maiybank or with Messrs. Bridges and Hicken- xooper. Now it cannot be an interference with the sovereign rights of the State of Mississippi for the Senate as a whole to judge for itself whether t agrees with; its own committee. If. there was fany interference with the sovereignty of Mississippi, it occurred ?when Mr. Ellender himself agreed lo investigate the charges; But if Mr. Ellender could investigate Bilbo's election, than it cannot be f shameful" for the rsf of jthe Semite to investigate Bilbo's election; The right of the Senate to be the "judge" of Bilbo's "elections, returns and qualifications" comes directly from the Constitution (article 1, section 5, paragraph 1). THere is no doubt that this im portant article m the Constitution is an "interference" wiih the sov ereign Tights of the State of Missis sippi and of every other state in the Union. The Senate is the final judge, and, not the state i which elected him, whether a man is properly elected and duly qualified to oe a senator of the United States. A FEDERAL JOB If ! That, whether Mr. Ellender atf proves it or not.: is one ot the basic principles of the. American Gov ernroent . ; i pleases to the Senate. The sovereign rights of the state are limited in this respect by the Constitution of the United States! Mr. Bilbo, if ihe were seated. would not be the senator of Mis sissippi but a senator of the United States; he would 'not be an officer of the state, but an officer of the Union. Si; There is no question, I think, that this is the fundamental principle of the case. It i was established in the Philadelphia Convention which framed the Constitution. On June 26, 1787, Oliver Ellsworth of Connecticut moved that the salaries of senators I" be paid by their respective states"! rather than "out of the national treasury."! The whole question which! Mr. Ellender had I spread for special lighting Before 1946 is entirely forgotten. ' 1. 3 1 X 1 J.

LIGHTS ON THE LAKE Editor: Pertaining to the coluwm in the Oakland Tribune, "Light Necklace," en park agenda: I hope it is not too late to have some discussion about this planned project. The lake Is adequate without "the spectacle of hundreds of lighted trees reflecting their beauty in the water of Lake Merritt could D a sight unparalelled anywhere." I suggest that we leave that sort of showmanship to communties less sure of themselves. The appearance of the lake during the war years was one of beauty and tranquillity. Its natural beauty was not dimmed by garnish lighting. The water and its surroundings predom- i every" newspaper and publication in inated. This is as it should be.
