Mr. Fooks stated, the Grap- plaining voices. There Is confidence In the sound of tiie hammers—»nd authority for th* hammers are rebuilding battered England. But In the complaining voices are doubt and uncertainly. There Is either dissatisfaction with the way that England la going or dismay that it hasn't achieved more for ihe common man clown the new political path It has been traveling. Says one young voice of Socialism: "Yes, we've got many things we didn't have before. But we Englisl are losing the taste for Scotct whisky and meat, because we so little. And that is bad for us because whisky and beef made great." And a voice from the politlca past says: "They me trying to do to muct here for everybody. It can't be don in a small land that lives by bring ing raw materials here for manu facLure and shipping the product elsewhere for sale. Ninety percen of the people will have to go bac to living the way they always did Then the ten percent with excep tional ability can live as well i their brains and Initiative entit' them to." It is hard tor a visitor to weig and interpret the complainh voices and what they mean to the uture of the United Kingdom. But ie visitor does get one cleiu'cut npresslon—that neither the classes the masses are satisfied with le present scale of austerity. Both ant more than they are getting ow of everything—except more nortages.

If you don't mention the Marshall Plan, they won't. And only a foolish American travels 3,000 miles to brag about Ills "generosity" to a liardup relative whose muscles he may need.
