MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 12, 1949 THi NATION TODAY— Procedure in Customs Offices Works Hardship on Importers; Rules Changes Are Advocated By Runllion W. Faron (For Jimn Mirlow) WASHINGTON, Sept. 12. M> ; - A jhipment of English china reached <h« UmUd StatM from Britain carefully packed in sets-cups, saucers dinner pla<«, dessert dishes. Customs officers tool; one look and shoot, their heads. The shipment nad to be unpacked and cups, saucers, plates, dessert dishes sorted into individual groups. Duly had to be paid en the plates, on the cups, on the saucers, on the dessert dishes, as separate shipments. Then the Importers had to reassemble the china as sets. That Is one example ol problems I by British exportes in selling »c—me United Slates market. It is one of the problems with which the U.S.-British-Canadian economic conference here will deal. A "working group", has been set up to prepare information on it for the conference. \V»nt Procedure Simplified '•What we hope for," said one here, "U a new altitude on the part of the customs officials, who seem still to be suffering from a hangover from the Boston tea party." A United States official who is trying to smooth the way for sales manufactures said: "Customs people are working to here by British and other European simplify the proeedure-s and eliminate some rulings that have little reason to be continued. They are receptive to suggestions for changes, and a sincere effort is beiiiR made to clear up the so-called nuisance problems. . . . "One thing that is needed, however, is not general criticism of the procedures, but specific instances of possible changes to simplify the methods. 1 ' The British commercial oljserver gave some other individual cases:' Ticket machines—lik« those used in London's subways—were "selling quite well" here as machines, he said—"then one day somebody said: 'These aren't machines, with a duty "I 12 1 : 2 per cent. They are cash listers. The duty Is 65 per cent.'" Spare parts for automobiles are admitted at 12 1 : 2 per cent but In one case, he.continued, a new speedometer for a British-made automobile "became a measuring machine at 80 per cent." Kate* Not An Issue Both tiic American and the Brit- isher agreed that tariffs themselves are not the principal problem. The American pointed out that reductions have been made in most tariffs—"they are by no means what they were pre-war." Solid silver pays a duty of 325 per cent and silver-plated ware 35 per cent. Some examples of tariff rates now in effect, compared with 1945, from U.S. Tariff Commission records in- tjf ^re Industry Showed Gain in Output During August WASHINGTON, Sept. 12. UP, Industrial production rose during August, for the first lime since October, 1948, the President's Council of Economic Advisers said Saturday. The council said preliminary estimates place tlie Federal Reserve Board's index of industrial production during August at 169, seven points above the estimated index for July and level wiih that for June. Tlie index is based on the 1935-39 average as 100. "Preliminary estimates indicate that industrial production in August fully recovered the four per cent drop in July, W h ic i, i, a rfbeeii due in part to the spreading practice of plant-wide vacations, especially in non-durables," the council said 'Tins was the first rise since October, 1948."

But two years later, these same children when studied at school appeared to have recovered from all the-EC distressing signs. Dr. Harris said there was no difference in after-effects, except for crippling, no matter what type of polio a child had. Nor any difference due lo prolonged stays in hospitals. The slight personality changes •seen after two years were caught by careful psychological tools. They were tendencies to be self-dis- cip!i;icd. more likely to yield to whims and more erratic.

"RINGER"—Paul Douglas in the nol-as-yet-released movie, "Everybody Does It," As you probably know, this reformed radio announcer hit like the proverbial ton of coal as a light comedian In "Letter to Three Wives" and "It Happens Every Spring." I n this n e w Numially Johnson movie, he now demonstrates that he can also reach the hlghwntcr mark as a low comedian. The art of sliding up to a rib and tickling it R .|(h a sledgc-liani- mer has all but vanished in these parlous and deadpan times mid it's my hint and hope tlial Hollywood will continue to give Douglas all thecelluloid he needs to flail around in. "RINGER"— Commissioner John Murtiignh. When Mr. M. started his Investigation of the ticket brokers of New Vork, 1 wondered if he were a politico out to make headlines and votes, or a reformer with his head in the clouds and clouds In his head. Well, recently I shared some traffics and talk with him, and lie impressed me as a down-to-sod chap who is completely sincere in Ins efforts to give this tough problem a realistic workout. For my lunch money, he's a better than a competent public official, and it's my huhch that he'll come pretty close to Betting the public a square deal on Times Square. "RINGER"— Doris Emery's candy shop at 152 West 57th Street. For three nostalgic decades.

The other night I finally got around to seeing "The Madwoman of Cliaillol," rated by the Orilics Circle as the best foreign piny of the I saw it from a seat In the balcony and when the show was over 1 couldn't help wondering what all tlie shouting—or, rather, whispering —hurl been about. From the reviews, I'd been led to believe that Martila Hunt was the runaway sensation of the play and Rstelle Winwood iniddiln' good, But from where i sat, it seemed Just the op- |x»itc—I could hear every word that fctelle said, while Miss Hunt came through like a OX station on a 1920 neutrodyne. Ever since, I've been wondering whether "Madwoman" would have cotter, the award if the critics had caugM it from the eighth row, balcony, instead of the first eight rows, orchestra. And If I mny go a wonder further: Since reviews arc rtead by folks who sit In the balcony a.s well as those who can afford the orchestra, why wouldn'l It be a u'xid idea lor the drama boys to scatter around a bk? I'm not suggesting that the critics make a regular thing of sittin;; up where they receive sptrlt messages, but I do think it would pay off if they would occasionally review n show under the conditions Imposed on 75 per cent of the people for whom they write. Right now, to make nny easy comparison, It's a.s If Ihe book reviewer got a complete volume, ivliile Ihe ordinal v reader had lo settle for a book with hitlf the na^es missing. "SUSS"—The F.C'.C. ban on givc- aw.iy shows. I don't qnlle follow the loping Ionic of this arbitrary decision. If give-away programs arc lotteries, why doesn't the F.C.C. swear out it warrant and arrest the people who produce them? According lo Ihe papers, the net- .re all set to dug this on, in the courts,-and on general principle* I hop* the two-bit bureaucrats get their lumps. And don't get the impression that Im fronting for the give-aways They bore the bcjabbcrs out of me and I think that what they ought to shoot is not the works but the MC, nnd what they ought to break Is not the bank but the sponsor's head.
