It has done this with *• »olc idea of fattening th« Soviet Union. Bare gtirvival was considered food enougX for tha satellites. In keeping with this policy, Russia «««vuraged development of industry in *h««« nations. Raw materials and agri- tural products were drawn into the So- Tiet Union, and Eastern Europe was maintained in the colonial role it Had known befor« tht war. But time* have changer!. Russia's • own economic performance in recent years has fallen well below expectations. Transportation difficulties have mounted, and this is a crucial consideration in a country where raw materials are «o unfavorably located. In consequence, the Kremlin has decided to built) up the .satellites to fill the breach. They have certain natural advantages for industrial puryioRes— somewhat more skilled manpower, easily accessible raw materials, better transport, and_ generally a more advanced cultural development. Obviously, however, these nations must be more tightly woven into the Soviet system if they are to be relied on for a real industrial contribution to Moscow's power. And to fit them permanently into the Soviet economy means serious political hazards have to be surmounted. This is the true explanation for the ruthless eradication of middle class folk and all other "unreliable;;" in Hungary and some of the other satellites in the past few months. Russia knows it cannot count on the necessary loyalty from these elements; it is adopting the standard Red tar-tic of eliminating them. The Soviet campaign for industrializing the satellites will call for substantial shipments of machinery and equipment. In addition, the workers will have to be pressed into the mold of "socialist competition" to fret out the production the Kremlin demands. The significance of this trend should not be minimized. If the program is carried out successfully, the nations of the vSoviel bloc will actually have been remodeled in the Russian image. For all practical purposes, they might as well th«n »• inwrporatod Int* the Soviet Union. Worse still, in th« process the healthy, democratically minded elements which form the core of antl-Communist resistance will Indeed have been fatally crushed. Thus the task of restoring them iinlimfltoJy to freedom will have become immensely more difficult. Long Live the King!

Boyle Jr. took the witness stand as the central figure In the latest o( a long scries of congressional Investigations into charges of tricky deals In high places. President Truman sent a message lo Congress advocating publicity on all high federal officials 1 Incomes. He suggested that congressmen, cabinet members, generals, admirals, Judges, alt high-sslaried government employes, and top party officials be required to give a public accounting each yenr of their total Incomes. One of Mr, Truman's public reasons for making this proposal, he asserted, was that "attempts hnve been made through Implication and Innuendo, and by exaggeration and distortion of th« fact« In a few cases, to create the Impression that graft and corruption are running rampant through the Thole government." Another was that it would be n step in preventing "improper conduct" among- officials. But the rtrmniiUc nature of (he President'! unheralded move will make many suspect that hl» private and htgRest reason for proposing th« legislation was a desire to disassociate himself In the public mind for any responsibility for th« unethical and downright crooked practices of some people In the federal service and to show that he is on the side of clean government. Bxccpt for the fnct thnt It would not produce so much publicity, Mr. Trumnn simply could havo proposed that tha Income tax be amended to mnke the returns of federal officials and em- ployei subject to public Inspection. We don't know that a proposition to make the tnx returns available when any question of dishonest and unethical conduct arlsei would b« any more favorably received In Congres* than Mr. Truman's plnn to have the special reports on Income, but at least It would have taken away some of the political color of his move. Not till officials or members nf Congress would object to having their income taxes made a part of the public record nnd It probably would do some goon. But what Is needed- more than that Is a cleaning of the moral atmosphere and zealous action on the part of tl 18 President and Consrcss to root out Incipient dishonesty and unethical conduct, No amount of income BC- cmmtlng would show up Influence peddling In ill Its aspects or solve the problem of ethical conduct In a lot of other respect*.

Bushman, the Clark Gable of 25 years ago who made grandma bust her corset staves whenever he ga7cd into a leading lady's eyes, leaned his back agninst a faded couch. He talked about thr Hollywood mansion he hnrt lived In when movlelown was a waste of vacant lots, coiv pastures and rickety wooden motion picture studios. On the other side of the room, his wife, gray-haired, plmnplsh and prclty, sat knitting. Occasionally, she raised her eyes anrt looked silently at the ruined. r,im- sptatlereri wallpaper, the Jumble of stuffed dogs, Spanish shawls, tnpe.s- trles and mementoes, the painted picture of the chairiot .scene from 'Ben Hur."
