VIEWS OF OTHERS Ij^^^^W^^yw™^-^ —"V -*~~ «•"-"•'• W^A- Second-Best Choice Housing Costs f Housing Administrator 'Foley thinKs that building costs can be cut to the prewar level President Carr of the National Ass'n of Home Builders thinks they can be reduced only by erecting in- feriJr houses. Wo think they bct'n are wrong. Never again will a new house give as .much living, per dollar, as in the '80s: But homes needn't f cost what they do TioW. •You'll be sorry if you expect to see 1930's cost again. The building industry' and everybody else will be sorry 'if -We have to watch 1946-47 costs much- longer. v Call-Him That—But Smile are real possibilities in ChaVles,'Luckmaii's proposal thai management avid labor co-operate u> send 1000 young men ancl women to college for a year. ; Tiie president of Lever Brothers has* 1 offered 5100,000 toward a million- dollar fund. He suggests that orjramx.wl labor select 500 candidates, an':! management- another 500, to,be furloiighed on : full pay for a special course in labor: relations. The million dollars would heliv-jijoH'ejjCH provide the best instruction :?ud research..facilities and \vodld\ •defray;*tuition and incidental expenses of students. ; , fu-esumably the unions and man- agerjient would choose young folks who, in the coming years, arc in line to deal with one another, on the two sides of\ the - contract fence. They would be taught "the most enlightened method for, making our economy produce a higher standard of living for all" ;The curriculum would include methods';.' of increasing productivity and wages, prices and profits. It vould lake up problems connected w'th the guaranteed wage, in which unions are showing great interest. It would con- sid_e> the rights of the public, the correlation of management, labor ar.J government, basic principles of labor legislation. And Luckman adds: "I might suggest a quickie course on how to eliminated name-calling' as a prerequisite to . lab.or negotiations." Even if every one of the 1000 students had at least a bachelor's degree • from a good college, he still could learn much from such a course as tin;;. •Labor negotiations derive much of their bitterness from ignorance on both sides. Neither knows what Ihe other is thinking. Neither knows what the other really wants or is prepared to give or take. Neither understands the other's mental processes. Each thinks \ of the other as a creature from a dif- ' ferent world. rhe negotiations meet with both sides assuming that there has to be a battle, royal that will end, eventually, in compromise. So the union i.sks for more than it expects, management offers less than. it is willing to grant. Both sides feel a bit x guilty, R n iKey - bolsler their prestige by a bit of public name-calling Maybe we're wrong, but we don't think this is necessary. We believe that contract .negotiations cocdd be placed in the hinds of men, on both sides, who not only knew each other by nams but who understood each other's problems. U the, men who will negotiate to- Herlwrt Hoover's "separate |>ence" proposal has * strong natural appeal to Americans. It is supported by wide irritation with Ruw.isi mid growing impatience with the costs ol occupa- tios. And a native Independence incines Americans to say "Let's go 11 alone." Yet Washington reports declare thai behind the Immediate favorable response was a considerable caution. "Let's not move loo quxk," said some. "Let's make a lust eftort to gel "Russia to work with us; wait till the Novcmtc: conference of the Big Four," said others. Sinew Hie United Slates Joined at Moscow in plans for the November meeting, there appears to be some oblllBellon lo keep on trying until then nt least. Mr. Hoover is on sound ground ui urging the revival of German and Japanese industry to a point that will remove the necessity for AsnerkHn support. It is neither reasonable! nor practicable to expect that support to continue indefinitely. Moreover, it may becomes necessary from « diplomatic standpoint to ssy to Russia, "This effort to co-opcralc bus iU limits. Don't push us-too far; we do have an ullerhat'vc." ' However, a separate l>e<icc certainly would be nothing to cheer about and is noMilng to rush into. Indeed, some of the reasoning \vhlch leads Mr. Hoover to advocate It must \x questioned. Russia Is by no means the solo, villain. Mr. Hoover mentions France's slowness in accepting American views about Germany. There Is still very little practical result from British- American plans to co-ordinnte their '/.ones. And while icparatlons disputes have hunipcrol plan- 'nlng for Japan, the United States has had almost n.. free hand In what has bee;: done there. Nor is It altogether proved that the signing of pe ; -cc treaties is synonymous with, solution of' the whole problem of American relief Formal peace might help by promoting political stability. But economic difficulties cause most of the political Inslabllity—as is. plain iiv Italy today. Moreover, much can be done to deal with the economic trouble before peace treaties arc signed—as Britain mid America have sc', out to do In Germany. ' Finnlly, it would be wise to rcaliv.c that a program of separate peace treaties will hardly be bought without a price. We cnnno', assume that it would bring any kind ot over-a!! agreement with Kussia; it is at least as likely lo prodiire new tensions and a complete split. Russl'i can tighten up her own sphere, with results not pleasant to think about in Czechoslovakia and some "other parts of caitcrr. Eu- roiie. She can become more menacing—which would spell more expensive American arming. And Ihe whole process of multiplying hats can lead evenUully to war. As we said earlier, the method of peace treaties may be necessary. But c'carly 11 Is a second-best choice aud should only foUo\v furthin , effort—we trust it will not be a.
