This has beevr true'throughout recorded his- •iory and remains true today. It is :tl- •ternately a frightening and a eoinforl- . ing fact. And nowhere has it been bct- 'ter. illustrated recently • than at the ; Paris conference. ] The foreign ministers' deadlock had '.held fast since last September, and ^showed .no signs of breaking. Reasons •of ideology and policy were cited to • support the contention that an agree-. . '.meht was impossible unless a miracle 'happened. No one expected the miracle, or could prei..ct its nature.' But appar- ;ently it has come to pass iti the •Shrewd, persuasive .personality of -George's BidftuU, Premier and President of France. ' Thankr- to M.

And"through t'ue liitncate ramifica- tions of French politics he found himself first in the French Foreign Office and then in his present position. That, briefly, tells who he is. But how he managed, R.S the weak junior member of his powerful foursome, to bring accord out of deadlock is a question whose complete answer is hidden within the walls of the Luxembourg Palace. 'lie inherited a canny, conciliatory policy from General de Gaulle and improved on it, Representing a country important enough to receive consideration but not strong enough to force an issue, ho seems to have played both ends against the middle. Or to put it' more politely, he apparently could sec and appreciate the intransigent positions of Russia on the one side and America and Britain on the other, and by this longer perspective suggest solutions acceptable to all. In budging the three greatest powers from their formerly immovable positions M. Bidault has not only illustrated again the force of an individual in world affairs, but has also presented the future roles of the smaller nations in a new and hopeful light. There will be future grave difficulties, certainly. But a way has been shown of solving the first and great. est. and as a consequence the world can breathe more-cosily. It can also thank M. Bidault, evVn though it does i:ot know him very well as yet. TUESDAY, JULY f), 1946 Old Practice—New Definition All this talk about "buyers' strikes" has a rather ominous sound, but it won't frighten the old-timers. They can remember when the practice of buying something at a price one thought reasonable, or refusing to buy, was fairly common. It used to be known simply as "thrifty shopping." B**ndBcUon The First To Be Injured The people of the United States nre entitled to a sound stable currency - • • Their' government has no right lo Injure them by financial experiments . . . This matter rises above the plan of party politics. It. vltf.lly concerns every business and calling and enters every household iu the land. There is one important aspect of the subject which especially should never be overlooked. At times like the present when the affairs oJ unsound finance threaten us. the speculator may anticipate a harvest gathered trom the misfortunes of others, the capitalist may protect htnuclf by hoarding or may even find profit in the fluctuations of values; but the wuge earner—the first to be Injured by depreciated currency and the last to receive the benefit of Us correction—is practically de'ense- less. —GROVER CLEVELAND.
