Yet there Is nothing to be gained by 11 passive, pessimistic view that war is inevitable, or by a seiseless insistence that we disarm immediately beccV.i.'.e war can't possibly comj again. General Eisenhower has issued this nation a challenge to action. Me has asked that we use our democracy to its limit in the cause of peace. It is up to us to lead the way.

There has been good reason for Ht.'s. The causes of war have been in t.Vii> hands of rulers, ; statesmen, and soldier*!. All . tiiat tKe rank and file got, was war's ' .consequences. The only way they could stop p. war was to win or lose it. Now General Eisenhower challenged that belief and called upon the '. citizens of this country to fac.i the challenge. He docs not say thai tlieir . actions can end war. lie docs say that "where men comprehend the causes of /war and understand their mnlual -responsibility to control them, war rnay happen—but it will cease to bo at. institution, a characteristic of human society." There is nothing visfinary about the Chief of Staffs challenge. He makes his point with a logic that all can understand. "National welfare," he says—that is, general security from, the lour fundamental evils of human existence, fire, famine, pestilence, and war—is the business of each citizen because it is he, ultimately, wlio suffers or profits. Because he has made it his business, we have attained measurable success over fire, famine, and pestilence. ' "War, however, is not a natural evil; it is man-made. Combining nil the hoi- rors of the other three, its malevolence - and diabolic savagery have been increased by man himself in the very years that he has learned control over the natural evils of life." N We have taken a sensible, realistic attitude toward the natural evils, as the General points out. Men know that ;if-they,do not control these evils the evils will destroy them. Yet the mass of citizens of any country sit blinded and immobilized at the approach of .the man-made combination of those natural evils, like an anirral of the :woods caught in an automobile's headlights : on a highway at night. What, then, does General Eisenhower propose? "As I see it," he says, "We need an organized effort, embracing every phase of society, whoso goal will be the development of individual, conununity, .and national •attitudes that will remove war from thi.category of the inevitable into its proper position as a>i evil subject to prevention, or at least control." 7hat is not a blueprint, but it is a way; The way is tremendously dift'i- t., Ev«n under » governim-nt like VIEWS OF OTHERS Shall We Accept More Immigrants?

Iff much easier to get the swing of trniiRS when 5011 know tlie ropes. —The big argument over whether tlie U- S. has an aluminum sh^rhme or surplus Is going strong again. This battle was first fought back in 1940 when aluminum was neeii- ed for 'airplanes. That market is now only a fraction of what 11 used o be. But since the war aluminum ig — ingot — has been produced ion pounds a month. This is more han double prewar production. Alcoa — tlie Aluminum Company of America which .starlecl Ihis business — reports n shortage of in- ;ot even today. Reynolds Metals Co. and Permancntc Metals — the alter a Henry J Kaiser company — which have gone inlo this business only during the past 10 years, nave more ingot than they know what to do with. What they really tick is customers, natural with any new business. Surveying the whole aluminum picture last April, the Office "of Metals Distribution in the Department of Commerce, declared tlicre would be an apparent shortage of aluminum pig .for the last nine months of the year. This finding is n ^ supply o f this ore. subject to review, possibly in July. | Reynolds now argues that '.hi As long as 'the Department of government should stockpile alumi Commerce certifies there is a short- ' mini pig instead of bauxite so a age of aluminum, the government- j to stockpile electric power, man owned Metals Reserve Corporation : power, and time as well a s ma is authorized lo sell its stockpiles , tcrial. This may have some merit of ingot on the open market, to but it is ruled out because the go- meet demands of the civilian eco- | vernmcnt today has no public pur- nomy. At the end o[ the war I.tiese j chase policy for aluminum ingots, stockpiles Included 370 milling' Tin; EASY WAY OUT pounds of Ingot aluminum. To meet Two alternatives have been sug- the demand for pots and pans and ] gested. First, that Reynolds ana aluminum parts, Mclals Reserve has Kaiser might cut their price, lorc- but it is believed to be over 3.i million pounds. Ai 1-7 cents a pound, this represents an Inventory , of nearly $5 million, which would he a considerable financral strain. The idea of having the government buy the Reynolds .and Kaiser surplus pig to strengthen the. cash position or these new producers meets several snags. The stockpiling bill passed i last year prohibits the Army-Navy Munitions Board from buying any critical materials while the civilian economy is 'n short .supply. Also, the Munition Board will not stockpile aluminun pig because it is on the "B" list Bauxite, from which aluminum made, is on the "A" list and the Munition's Board has stockpiled i par been gradually disposing of this stock. Today it has less than 50 million pounds and would like to close ing Alcoa to meet the cut. None of Hie three producers says this "an be done now. They argue that alu- mimim prices have already come down from 20 cents at the start, of the war to 14 cents today. The second alternative is that Alcoa buy the surplus pig for which teynolds and Kaiser have no imme- iate use or market. This runs into he Department of Justice's fa- noiis two-year anti-trust suit a- ;ainst Alcoa. In March, 1945, Fedral Courts found that Alcoa had monopoly or ingot production ns if 1040- But judgment was defer- ed pending disposal of government —built war plants. Last November WAA reported that Alcoa then owned 54 per cent of aluminum n^ot capacity, Reynolds 29 per cent, and Kaiser 17 per cent. Alcoa, therefore, petitioned the court last March to iind that the .nnnopoly no longer existed, thus dismissing the anti-trust suit against it. While tills action is pending 'Alcoa's attorneys have advised the company not to buy any aluminum ingot from Reynolds or Kaiser, as this might prejudice their To meet this objection, Reynolds has asked the Department of Justice Anti-Trust Division to grunt Alcoa permission to buy the Reynolds surplus ingot. Kaiser is considering similar action, separately. Early action is likely. Alcoa officials say they would gladly buy surplus ingot from Reynolds or Kaiser if the Department of Justice would grant them F*?mission. That solution would scam to be the easy way out. It would make everybody happy .and solve the great 1947 aluminum shortage ,or surplus — whichever it is. .
