LEAPING AT THE CHANCE Performance Counts In a recent address on the European aid problem, Senator Ball of Minnesota said: "I am convinced, and the record bears me out, that a free economy will always out produce and provide a higher standard of living for all the people than either a socialistic or government-planned and controlled economy. I believe that when economic freedoms are liquidated, the other freedoms are in jeopardy, and the socialists have always had too muc.ii in common '*vi«.ii nic communists for my taste." It makes very little difference to a nation what label a dictatorship wears. The results are always the" same. The state dominates every phase of life within its borders. It buries every undertaking beneath a thick web of red tape and restrictive controls. It-destroys the initiative and enterprise of individuals and groups alike. It stirs up discontent by making promises: that cannot possibly be fulfilled. And, in the long run, it abrogates more and more of the nations liberties in order to keep the ruling class in power. This must be kept in mind by the American government in the development of our policy toward Europe. We, with only a fraction of the world's population, cannot indefinitely support the world without ruining ourselves. Many seem to have forgotten that an essential of the Marshall Plan in the beginning was that Europe must do all in her power to help herself. But, so, far, Europe has done very little to lift herself out of the doldrums. As an example, Senator Ball cited the failure of the British socialized coal industry to produce ^enough tojnake possible i resumption Ol exports LU "vveai-eiu XJLIIUJJC. imo imo made it necessary to devote much of Europe's broken-down railroad system to the job of moving coal from the Ruhr--a fact which is at the heart of the European economic problem. Mr. Ball suggests that, as a condition of continued aid, we insist that Britain supply a million tons of coal a month to European parts and thus alleviate the unbearable strain on tlie land transportation machine. Lastly, it is up to us to show Europe, by example, that the free enterprise system has neither a superior nor an equal. The people of Europe must realize, in the face of totalitarian propaganda, that our system "is the only one which is capable of bringing a nation both material abundance and spiritual power and freedom. We can best defeat communism by outperforming it. .You never can tell No one seemed more a typical New Yorker than the late Mayor Fiorello H. La- Guardia.

UP)--The present senate inquiry into grain spec- | ulation recalls the famous "Case of the JigRled Windowshade," an historic scandal in !he Department of Agriculture. The Federal employe who jiggled the windowshade was reported to have made -more that year by this one acl than the president of the United Slates received in salary -- then $50.000. It was back in 1905. The man had just been a secret crop report. By adjusting the windowshade he signalled to a conspirator outside whether the crop would be larger or smaller than expected. Well, the prices on a commodity market rise in normal times if a small crop is forecast and fall if a huge crop is in sight. A trader who finds out this information in advance can thus buy or sell before the price changes aud.reap. a profit. When he is dealing by hundreds of thousands of bushels, even a slight price chaifge can make him big money. The outcry over the jiggled windowshade led the Department j of. Agriculture to put in a foolproof system »o assure that no news of its crop estimates would leak out until they were to be made public. To do this the .newly created crop reporting board devised "the lock-up." This is a block-long corridor in the agriculture building which is sealed off the morning monthly estimates of important national crops such as corn and wheat are to be issued. Guards are posted outside locked doors at each end of the corridor, all windowblinds are locked down, and the telephones are disconnected. The statisticians then go to work assembling the data. No one is permitted to leave the "lock-up" until the report has been completed and issued simultaneously to j news reporters waiting in a guarded room. Unaware" of the restriction, the late Arthur M. Hyde, then, secretary of Agriculture, tried 'to'leave after signing his first departmental crop report. He ,had to wait, too. So another time di$ a man who had an urgent appointment w i t h the president. A worker did get out once when word came his wife had been suddenly stricken ill. But an armed guard accompanied him to the hospital room. "Since 1905 there has been no leak of any kind," said Jasper E. Pallesen, secretary of the crop control board. I asked him whatever happened to the man with the windowshade, and he referred me to an informa- specialist wno is maKing a NEW WMUJ» _ .

Year of Disaster ^ -The year which just closed witnessed a record fire loss in" the United'States. It was a year in which hundreds of millions of dollars worth of property. much of it scarce, was needlessly destroyed. It was a year in which ten thousand or more people were burned to. death, and other thousands disfigured and crippled for life. It was a year of disaster for a legion 0f American families. We cannot repair the failures of the past. We can, however, let the lessons of the past guide us in the future. That is true of fire as it is of almost all problems. The fires which caused much havoc in 1947 were not--save for a tiny proportion--acts of God. They were, to the contrary, the fruits of human ignorance, inertia, and carelessness. The great majority of them began from the simplest causes--im- j properly maintained lighting and heating equipment; i :| improper storage of flammables, thoughtlessness |'''° with matches and cigarettes, and so on. ! . Those fires could have been prevented easily. In- j ';"|, mi ,. "*,,!,';'{ stead, men and women worked on the dangerous \ women K on UK theory that disaster couldn't come to them. But i t j " did.

During the next J twelve months that page will be filled with a new rec- j ord of death and destruction unless we face the problem with determination to improve it.
