Wallace Still Bats 1.000 in Misguided Opinion League We deem it necessary to take Henry Wallace by the hand again, for he has wandered off once more inlo those same ideological -woods that have so often swallowed him up in the past. This should really be no surprise. Wallace has reduced to a fine specialty ths business'of urging great causes while ignoring all the facts. His newest misadventure concerns th« New York trial of 11 Communists on charges of conspiring to teach and advocate overthrow of the government by force. U. S. Judge Harold Medina recently jailed three of the defendants, one for contempt of court and the other two for violent protests against the ruling. Wallace labeled the action "shocking," a threat to American liberties and a use of the comt'a power to "promote injustice." Serious charges of that nature against a highly regarded judge ought to be well-founded if they are going to be made -at all. What has occurred, if anything, to warrant Wallace's blistering criticism? To begin, these 11 defendants have been on trial nearly half a year. In all that time both they and their lawyers have showed a continuous and obviously calculated disrespect for normal, orderly judicial processes. They shout, they rant, they heap abuse, they ignore court rulings and warnings. It is planned legal chaos. Probably no judge ever endured more in the name of justice. Medina, a paragon of patience, has leaned over backwards to avoid severe measures. He knows the defendants have the double aim of discrediting the courts and provoking him into an error that would lead to a mistrial or a later reversal— in the event of conviction. Medina nevertheless has repeatedly warned the Communists to cease their deliberate disrupting tactics. Once he told a defendant that one more outburst from him meant a contempt citation. Still the tirades went on. The showdown came when one defendant refused to answer a question put by a govern. ment lawyer. Medina ruled that the defendant, having decided to testify for himself, could not also decide what questions he would or would not answer. He cited the man, John Gates, for contempt and sentenced him to a maximum of 30 days in jail. It was this decision that brought the vocal storm down on Medina's head and led him to send two more defendants packing off to jail. It was this decision which Wallace said "promotes injustice." Docs H? J\o one questions Medina's legal right to do what he did. We think his moral position also was strong. He had undergone contemptuoui assault from the Communists and their lawyers for more than 20 weeks, without striking back. He used Hie power of his court only after countless warnings that he would not indefinitely endure their tactics. By his charge, it is apparent Wallace has ignored the shambles the Communists seek to make of their trial. He is saying in effect that an American court cannot protect itself against those who wish to upset its orderly determination of justice. it seems to us Wallace is at least as far from being right as he was from capturing the presidency on election clay last November. VIEWS OF OTHERS Good Idea - But It Raises a Tough Question. Governor McMalh wants to take the Highway Department out of politics with a merit system for its employes, and we're all for Hie idea. No doubt, as he says, better roads would be built U the employes lelt securer in their jobs. He might even be right In his view that those better roads would cut down accidents, and save lives. But again he might not be. Sometimes it seems that the better the roads are. the faster and more reckless U the driving—and the obituary columns tell us what that means. The Governor spoke out for a Highway Department merit system at the National Highway Safety Conference, In Washington, D. C. He also implied that the same system should be scjopted In other divisions of state government. He said that "indiscriminate" political patronage keeps many departments from doing a satisfactory Job. We agree with him there, too—in principle, as the diplomats say. For. unquestionably .the quality of government would be Improved, Its worlc would be better done, if the rank and file of It* workers saw more future in their Jobs. The wholesale firing which faces them when a new administration comes In is a powerful damper on ambition. Many capable citizens will not take such uncertain Jobs. Ollen, important places go to plain incompetents, in payment for campaign obligations. And at the best, the big turnover made bj every new administration replaces a lot of experience with inexperience. For all of this, the public pays. But how to remedy it is a tough question. The mainspring of our political system ia the wide- open competition for head-man Jobs; and how could [he campaigns be operated without palron- • ge—without Jobs to reward usclul tollers In the political vineyard? We don't know. Does anybody know? Certainly, until a workable answer la found, no! Just a theory, there Is smaJl chance of Job-permanency for ill government workers. A partial merit set-up. Is all that seems possible. —ARKANSAS DEMOCRAT Hoover Can Handle It Senator Wherry's demand for a "little FBI" in the Atomic Energy Commission doesn't make much sense. One of his reasons apparently is because, according to Senator Hickenloopcr, too many persons are cleared for atomic work In "emergencies," without advance FBI investigation. The same emergencies could be declared with a "little FBI," and men put to work without thorough Investigation—unless procedure were changed. So Senator Wherry would change procedure. He would give his new security police "final decision" In clearing anyone hired by the AEC. This would be dangerous practice Indeed. No Investigative agency should have powers of judge and prosecutor. This borders on police statlsm. There is no need to separate the security lunc- tlon from others and establish another tedcnl detective agency. The Implied criticism or the FBI, inherent in Mr. Wherry's proposal, is unjustified. Nothing in the Hickenlooper charges or In testimony Impugns the effectiveness of Ine Federal Bureau of Investigation. J. Edgar Hoover can handle atomic security adequately if his department is given full jurisdiction. Perhaps methods of examining FBI reports should be improved by Hie AEC, but even Director Hoover would rule out using his bureau as final Judge and jury in such cases. We don't need another FBI, bi present organization is excellent Federal government needs no mo or little. The nd sutlicwiu. police units. ST.

Briefly, the idea is simply this: If farmers are to receive support ;jrice payment.? or guaranteed minimum income in years when prices are below normal, why shouldn't lh«y pay something back to the government in years when prices j government are above normal? I-shut off ret The idea sounds fine In theory.

But whenever the experts sit fat years, and down and try to fifrure this out on a -sound, actuarial basis .they run ' into trouble . Ollrction Method Stumps Experts First, how would such income insurance premiums be collected? Using income tax returns as a basis for collection has been suggested. But the income [ax return has al- for That's ways been considered a confidential report by the citizen lo his government. Making it a semi-public document, for use even by government insurance premium collectors, would destroy this sacred relationship.

When these processes ace added together, it has been found that fro/en after a year's .storage have about as much vitamin C a.s the .same products cooked within 11 hours after picking. Properly prepared frozen and stored fruits, vegetables and meats do not develop any poisonous products even after long storage. Apparently fish stored for several years may become indigestible or unpalatable, but even this is not dangerous. Reports indicate that freezing causes a decrease in the number of germs, but it does not kill them all. Frozen foods should not be held For more than a short time above 15 degrees, because germs can grow at or about this temperature. Taste and appearance are better, and deterioration and germ growth avoided, at storage temperatures of about zero to 10 degrees. Provided frozen foods are prepared properly amj quick freezing, storage and cooking are done properly, they will supply the same important nutritious elements that foods do.

It would be administratively difficult to set levels above the 'minimum support, price at which prs- mt munis would be payable- In some years the margin above the support level might be so small that no premium could be collected. Or, the premium might force the net prico below the support level, thus requiring a benefit payment. For all these and some other reasons besides, farm economists think income insurance Ls tin workable. though it sounds fine in theory. Some day the experts hope :>nd believe that some bright boy will come up with the right answers to meet all objections. Secretary of Agriculture Charles F. Brannan has one ready answer which he says makes price insurance unnecessary. When prices arc above support levels, the farmers are making money. The more they make, the more income taxes they pay. In that way the farmers repay the U. S. Treasury for subsidies they receive through price support, soil conservation and other benefit payments. s pro ad bj bite.
