Labor can show too much interest in buyers' strikes for the good of the nation for it sewns that some of the leaders in the unions are working for selfish interests. \ ' They are threatening to demand still higher pay for their members in the-event OPA pi ice regulations are "not restored. That would mean that .prices would have to go still higher, adding to the burden of every consum- *er who docs not happen to belong to -one of the unions able to hijack ein- .'Ployers into paying higher .salaries. ,'j. It. would mean a continuation of a ivicious^ circle which already hns done yniich to make high pi-ices higher. :".' The air today is clouded with propaganda generated with the single idea ^of scaring Congress into restoring fprice controls which are unnatural in •a. free country, except in times of ex- •"treine emergency such as the war from which we hjioe* just emerged. ; Labor with its planning of buyers' Tslrikes is playing neatly into the hands 'of administration leaders who have their heads r>ct—just why we do not -know, unless it is to perpetuate government bureaus with fat payrolls for men who might be serving their country better as tax producers instead of ; tax spenders—on the restoration of .price controls regardless of whether 'they are needed.. The tiling members 01" Congress should watch—and watch with extreme ; care, if they have the interests of their "'constituents at heart—is the true and SBeneral trend over the nation between :July 1 und the date on which congres- •sional control over price controls pass• ;es back to OPA or to its proper place iwhere it can be regulated by supply :and demand. [.[ If prices get out of bounds at any itime in the future, new regulatory measures can be enacted, but we doubt that will be necessary. Most business men, except the black market oper- : ators,.have had their fill of controls; ; they have co-operated remarkably well, often at some extra expense and no ^end of trouble. Enough of them will be • eager to sell at prices which bring in only-a reasonable profit so that shylocks can be put out of business before . long and then both buyers and sellers can settle down to the good old times which made America a great nation, and turn definitely from the road which they now are traveling in the direction of governmental regulation which will be no better than the worst of the Isms of Kurope. Remember that tabor is working hand in hand with some powerful bureaucrats in WnshinjftoivUJemumber that labor i.s obligated to some of those bureaucrats for assistance in getting recent wage'increases which they could not otherwise have gotten. It appears lo be nothing short of an unholy union which does not consider the best interests of the nation as a whole. In areas not dominated by labor unions and the bureaucrats there is evidence that business will continue under more nearly normal conditions without OPA limn it will with price controls again in the hands of the bureaucrats. , Buyers without being organized are doing what they did throughout the scores of years when they knew of no law other than "supply and demand" and it is a law which functions without hiring a lot of high-salaried misguided theorists to administrate it.

When the price of. coal comes down, the marginal operators — the little fellows with the highest production costs— will be the first to be hit. So what happens on the day some O f these little fellows wnke up to find they can't meet their payroll?

She lei hose two needed some lime lo homselves and was delermine< hey should have it. When EtU Virgil came hurrying down th ong corridor, she headed her off Doctor Willoughby happened t >e passing by just then and topped for a moment. "What goes on, Sally?" he astfc curiously. "Just why did you re fuse the sister admittance? H isn't worse?" Sally shook her head »nd stand ing close to him whispered mys leriously: "He's entertaining h sweetheart and th* family hat her!" ' Wow—n owl" the reslrlen chided, shaking * finger at th nurse. "She's sweet," Sally satd softl; "I wish you could see them to gcther, It—it's—well, it's wonder lull I was so afraid I ihouldn be able to keep that sister of h out; but Miss Nlles has stayed quite long enou«h_ tftr .the ly. 'T hnte to do"it;" but"I'ir'linve send her off." "I want to see her—I'll stick ound for a minute." The doctor inned. Sally opened the 'door, after locking discreetly, and entered, shining faces of the two hide spoke volumes and her smile ns sympathetic as she interrupt- d them. "This is our patient's first day ir callers. Miss Niles, and we iiistn't let him get too tired. I'm ire you can come back tonior- ow—in the morning, if you like, robabiy his family will want to ome in the ntternoon," she ex- laincd tactfully. The girl blushed and thanked cr, while the eyes of the palicnt atched his beloved adoringly. Good-by, darling," he said softly, nd she stooped to kiss him quite s if it were customary. "We're engaged," he said trl- imphanlly as the door closed be- ilnd her. "Oh, I didn't know," Sally said. 'Then—" "My family doesn't approve," tie said baldly. "I've been n fool «id a coward, but not any longer. Vow that I shall bo well and like other men I feel I can face them. Tother and Etta arc not dependent on me for support. Mother lias plenty for both her and Win; but somehow they have never wanted me to marry—to leave them. Ann and I have been in love for years. She understands; but now we shall be married just as soon as I am on my feet. I shall not do any explaining until it is nil over. You have no idea how I feel, Nurse—now that I shall be as other men—well and strong." . • * • TT was barely seven when Sally finally went oft duty that afternoon and Margaret Adams met her on the stairs leading to the dining room. She had a letter In her hand. "Special Delivery, Sally," she said, holding it out. "I signed for it. I hope it,isn't bad news, It's from Washington." <To B« Continued)' ilral Ben Morccll, the govcrii- nent's coal mines administrator, re sweating it out in the air- oiulitloned mines of Washington. Their work, which Is nni nice hough they have it, is to agree .;n 1 contract under which the owners can lake their mines back • from he government. If Admiral Moreell vnnts to consult John L. Lewis aboul any phase of this, hn has o fly In a navy plane to wherever Lewis Is. Though Hie com strike was presumably settled over six weeks ago, .he mines have not been tamed back to their owners bccnus,-* qt inability to ngree on several points in the government's contract with the miners' union. First, on declaration of the new safety code. It was to have 1jccn ssued within 30 days after settlement ot tlic strike! A draft was prepared, but both union and operators objected to some of its provisions, so that's hung up. The mines arc now being operated under temporary Bureau of Mines satety regulations. Second, on supervisory employes. Some of the operators, who want to get their properties back In a hurry, nre now willing to settle this on any terms. Other operators are holding out for a clear tU'ti- nllion of who is management and who is nol. A long battle is ahe:ul. and It will Iflfcn n Supreme Court decision lo settle it rinally. Third is operation of the welfare fund. Operators anticipate that Lewis will demand the same, control over these fujids In the. soft-coal mines thai he won in a contract with the hard-coal operators. For the time being, the general public't give a hoot about nny of these things. There Is coal To be bought. If anyone wants In July. Trains and factories are running. So why worry? John b. Lewis doesn't care. He has n good contract with the government. It's a belter contract than he could have obtained from Hie operators. He would be content to have It run on forever. The coal operators aren't concerned too much. They arc working, after having experienced a costly 00-day strike. At the moment here is less labor nnrest in tJie nines thnn there has been In a long time. Government operation of the mines has been more or less nominal. If a company wants to declare a dividend, it merely wires Admiral MorceU's office, and soon thereafter approval comes through. But some of the bigger operators. who have refinancing to do and who want to make capital Investments for improvements or mechanization, nrc in n bad way. For instance, Pittsburgh Coal, Consolidated Coal, and the Hanna properties, which recently agreed to a mtrgcr. can't complete the deal till their properties nre back in pri- vi tc hands. So some fine day this stupid stalemate will have to be broken. The government, for its own P •election, will have to get out tiom under its present contract Vilth the union. {JOVF.RNMENT OPERATION fOSES HARD PROBLEMS Harry Moses, president of the .1.' C.
