'.', As one Blythevillo banker aptly put ~' it, the law of supply and dcinancl again - has a chance to function. It'is i'tmc- -• tioning, otherwise the price, of livc- '- stock rushed to market • yesterday _ would not have suddenly shiftcd-down- •Z ward so soon. And the sumo-thing happened in other fields. Uusinessinen generally are to be - commended for their determination to ' hold the line on prices. The line, fixed ""by"'OPA has not been holding and in , the leveling off process, minus the '. • OPA restrictions and the black mar- kets, there arc certain to be some in- creases. It is not impossible to expect " some decreases, top. ' In the meantime, Americans should be on the alert to expect a flood of ;j'propaganda to hit Washington, .and. '-much of it will originate there from ^_ the office's of the bureaucrats who will - be clamoring for immediate action to i_rrestore the powers of the OPA. j .".What Americans need to consider, and urge their congressmen and sen- 1 ators to weigh carefully, is the fact that the OPA with all of its powers had not been able to prevent inflation. ;, It has been with us (as another of the •; Blytheville bankers stated earlier this : , week).for more than a year. The OPA •. has not been able to control prices '' even though it spent millions of dollars to set up rules and then try to enforce them. Buyers could defeat the promised return of normal peacetime conditions in the stores and shops of the nation if they should rush in to buy at any price. The common sense showing during the past three days provides mountains of confidence this will not happen. The merchants could defeat the promised return of normal peacetime relation between buyers and sellers by slowly increasing the prices of the food in their markets and the wares on their shelves In other types of stores, but they, too, have demonstrated sound business sense and are doing a fine job of "holding the 'line" against prices which the OPA and its supporters were certain would rise like a tide and sweep the nation. It has been suggested -that a few Scrooues would be out to reap outlandish profits. They already were op- crating the blacl( markets. The Scrooges will )>o few in number in the. peacetime business world, and the buyers soon will loarn to know and avoid them. With black markets out of the way, the reputable business men will'pros- per and at the same time retain the goodwill f their customers 'who have been mighty tolerant during months of handicaps for merchants by reason of bonal'ide shortages., and shortages brought on by governmental tampering with economic laws which cannot be repealed, and supplanted by prolonged cxi>ermier,ting with political laws which cannot be enforced. A housewife summed up the whole situation with these words: "OPA could have worked, if everybody had been •honest." And in the same breath she. added: "If everybody is honest, we do not need OPA." Americans have been on their honor these past few days, and we feel they have paved the way for a return to sound, normal, peacetime conditions, if they do not encounter more governmental interference.

Sanderson, Toronto, Canada, Public Library. * * * Mopiiai|Kin usiiOcT '(.ion liuauoo) 'msA\o.iouio>i Mnopiu, -ra;:> -uiopaa.ij .mo o.iois -o.i pun OAII 01 sn oiqiuio 01 uoiiuu ain jo ppj am 01 OUIOD upiftn Xuioiio >nomuioD -u isuiuSu .ti3M Din Stu.inp puinoj padicnj ou.A\ SOJOU.TOOUI -3p oin imn spumuop uonvii nsnod oin ' pjpr,|ouoD XisnouopiA u j3-)jij '.Cupoj, The average consumer is paying a much higher price for soft-Hue items than he will be able to pay when appliances, automobiles and new homes are freely available.—Dr. Robert C.

At last Miss Maynard took them to the garden where she and old Timothy, the ancient outdoor man, had been doing a great deal of landscaping, transplanting and experimenting.

(NEA) — —Jesse Jones is asjain bcint' Invited to the White House. When Fred M. Vln'son was sworn in as Chief Justice of the United suites, Jones \viis rhjht up there in front on the South Portico, where he coukl be seen. Henry Wallace was also on the portico, but not nenr Jones. 'flits is the third or fourth time Jones has been Invited to the while House since Truman became President. Though Jones has been extremely critical of the atlminisfra- tlcn's British-loan and liibor policies, he has never been caMed down for expressing his opposition. Jones has been a close friend of Secretary of the Treasury John M. Snyder ever since the days when Snyder worked for Jones in the RFC. Uncle Jesse's relationship with the administration is described in this way: Though Koosc-vclt fired him, he was never in Harry Truman's bad graces. Hn is at;ain moving in administration circles. But he i;, by no means what might be c.'.'.lcil mi administration adviser, and it would not be safe to jump to any conclusions on his future participation in administration affairs. The day after Vinson wns sworn in as Chief Justice, Arthur Krock of the New York Times wrote an editorial column comparing Vinson to chief Justice John Marshall, per. haps the greatest of all Supreme Court justices, who served from 180L to 1835. "You would never iceogni/e the similarity." cracked one Washington wag. "unless it was pointed out to S'ou by someone who knew them loth intimately." OI'A IJNCKK I'AIX't V IHXAYKD OH'.VIU UEI'OUT The Office of War Mobilization nncl Reconversion is supposed to mnkc a quarterly report to Congress on July 1. but u will be (ielaycd for some time. The reuson is t'nat the economists couldn't u-rile anything until i hey knew what Congress was going to do abr.ut OPA and what the administration line would be on price-control extension. As John W. Snyder left the OWMR directorfhip only five days before July 1. the report covering the past three months should properly be siKiird by him. ihouiih he is now Secretary of the Treasury.

Danny tolerated the buy until the itch hole, then ask-, ed: "When did you learn this game? Now don't tell me it was this morning. I want to know what time this-morning." TYPICAL AMERICAN- I'lONIC A blase Hollywood writer, Diehard Brooks, describes a picnic for ihe script of Mark Hellin;;er's "Swell Ouy" at, Universal: "It is the usual American picnic. People sun themselves, mothers yell at children, a buseball came is played among iniddlcnged salesmen who can't make first base In any direction; characters me eating, drinking, belching, lunching, pitching horsesiioes, running three- legged races, etc. It i s generally looked upon as fun." Rosalind Russell cabled Sister Ellzabsth Kenny a jubilant report following the first, sneak-previr-w of RKO's "Sister Kenny." Sister Kenny, who picked up s> healthy smattering; of Yankee s'.ang ivliiie In Hollywood, cabled back: "Great. Line up a donbln of cob- bers and we'll celebrate with a ni!;_ cutting dingo when I return." Ella Raines isn't completely happy with the script, of "While Tie and Tails," in which she is costarred with Dan uiirycn. Ella en- Joys n h:ippy romance with the menacing Dan in the film. Ho.vever, he doesn't as in previous pictm-c.s, punch, push, or .pummel the heroine. "Peopls." says Ella, "won't believe he loves inc."
