Unkindest Cut We weren't too encouraged when we read that the'Moscow radio liaii decided to adopt that well-known Amen-' can institution, the radio commercial. And we were even more depressed when we learned Russian broadcaster.-; had given their listeners mi inaugural dose , of eight straight minutes of ether advertising. . If anything more were needed to persuade the obedient Soviet citixens that the American way of life ain't for them, this has probably done it. Commencement Speech Contradictory Window- Dressing Russian communism is on Uin move again, in Hungary and Bulgaria—bringr iiiKi »s it carefully )x>ints, true democracy, equality, liberation of Mm exploited workers. And yel, when communism .starts moving in, it always presents evidence of a plot of desperate treachery by Hie opiwsition as Us p;v- lude to liquidiitiiiii the opjwsiUon. We suppose it has struck !lu Soviet govern muni as odd that, wherever they lake their Utopia, they always run into this frenx.jed opiwsition to till (he benefits and blessings that communism brings. Hut we also suppose that the Soviets don't really expect this window-dressing lo he viewer] seriously. They are obviously more concerned with the main performance than witli the sideshow. This being the commencement season, we are going to add one more speech lo the many already made. Doubtless thc .new graduates have been bearing the same old words from their elders, and are heartily sick of advice. But this year the old words have a new urgency. The coming generation really does have mankind's fate in its hands. It really must riot repeal the present generation's mistakes. To avoid them it will need all the help and wisdom and blessings its- elders can pass along. So, for our speech, we are going to use some-words of advice-addressed to the new generation in the 1947 ''Book oi~ Knowledge Annual." They are various unofficial opinions on what, '-he world's most urgent problem is today. And in spite of all the free advice being handed out right now, we think they are worth reading as an example oi intelligent man-in-the. street thinKii'g. "Peace, through co-operative effort for the good of all, is undoubtedly thc world's greatest problem today • - • Moral, rather than civil regulations arc the answer. Belief in right, rather than force, causes people lo do right." Ring Crosby. "My answer is that we must bring our thoughts and actions into line as quickly as possible, with the changed conditions of our age . . . Each age in the life of mankind has been based on some new ways of living, which have widened man's view of the world. Now his view must embrace the whole earth . . . "For the youth of today the whole world is their country, and their first interest and loyalty should be for all mankind. World brotherhood . . . i.s no " longer a far-away ideal but a '. necessity." Prof. Alain Locke, Howard University. "I consider understanding of the rest of the world our most important problem today. Our children can help solve it by learning about other countries and helping create good will'be- tween all nations of the world and themselves." Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt. "The most urgent problem for the world today is getting along together i ... (It) ought to be as easy for nations as for individuals in the neighboi'hoo,d. In neither case can it be based on anything but information,, knowledge and understanding of that knowledge . . . Education, I think, holds the key to peace." Ellis Amall, former governor of Georgia. "The greatest problem the world lias to solve is 'man's unfriendliness tp man.' Without a doubt our young folks can help a 'cojifused world, even lead the government. We need 'world citizens' with' the knowledge that all< people are created equal, that borders rryist VIEWS OF OTHERS 5raise"ForMacArthur Much praise, and little criticism, has been given General MocArthur's work in Japan. Good observers say that never before has a defeated warlike nation been taken over by sticii n small force as MacArthur's, and so changed in such short lime as he has changed Japan. The far-seeing view of a statesman \r, credited to him by Hulph j. Donaldson, writing in the Cleveland Plajn Dealer. MacArthur, he says, "is thinking in terms of the next l,00.i) years." "He sees Japan as a nation ripe tor the democratic way and principles of Christianity." the writer continues. "They have had a glimpse of what freedom can be like, and they are determined to have it permanently, "In the Japan that MacArllnu- Is minding for the future, the people will control their government; there will be no expensive military establishment to drain away the resources ot the country ... In such a Japan, MncArlhur believes thc opportunities for trade with the United states, and mutual profit, are virtually unlimited." Thc writer adds that MacArthur sce.> the time coming when the main trade routes ot ihe world will be across the 1'aciflc, witli Asia's raw materials brought to the United .Stules for pro- into finished goods, and Amsrican .in- Ottoman, a Cannibal at Heart, ^ Turns Vegetarian for 'Duration Hit DOCTOR SAYS KY WILLIAM A.

BARBS BY HAL COCnRAN The strongest words are usually used In the weakest arguments. + * * Another judge has ruled that thc ijrdestrlan has the right of way at street corners. It's stdl a good idea to look both ways. before the House soon. And unless they get it, extending their wartime premium price plan Mndcr which they will have received S345 million in the five years ending June 30, many of these marginal mine operators claim they will have to close down. They ton't ivanl ir- 10 happen. They never had subsidies before the ar, but they learned lo like them hey claim that if they shut their lines down now an<i for long, it •111 be impossible to reopen.

Finally, these hi?h- cost producers claim the U. S. should do something [o build np its stockpile of strategic metals, for another war. Under urging of the marginal mine operators, two bills have been introduced in Congress to keep them Eoim;. Thc one by Sen. Arthur V. Watkiiis of Utah is fairly simple and of short range. It would authorize the government to continue subsidizing copper, lead and zlnu production until the remaining $W million of last year's S100" appropriation for premium pay- mittcc. But it lias-now been reported out and will probably the House. Its fate In the Senate s less certain.

Beinn tired all over in most cases is a sign that all the muscles ate affected. Moi-iimp. fatigue is unnatural. It means that one has not had enough sleep or that illness is developing. In most cases, iniomlng fatigue which disappears during the day and is followed by a wakeful eyenins; is a sign of l)oor adjustment to work. If you like your job. you itre less liable to become tired than if you are doing something which is disagreeable. Those who are trying to do work beyond their ability and those who have not been properlv instructed for their job complain of excessive fatigue. CAUSES OF WORKY Most worry victims are tired all the time. Commonest causes of worry are concern over the opinion of others, over health, over what is to be done, and over what hns been done. Average worriei lacks courage to face reality anc U unable to adjust to ehangln: circumstances: Vacation time provides a good | opportunity to get rid of accumulated fatigue. Its mental origin is indicate^ by the promptness with which the feeling disappears during vacation. In some cases, however, it is physical fatigue, and vacation time should be used for a complete physical and mental rest. If you are tired all the time, a physical • examination is recommended.

Bureau of Mines has opposed the 'Russell bill. Its experts are no; convinced that subsidies will conserve the domestic supply of scarce metals. They have estimated the U. 5. now has only a 25-year reserve or copper, lead, and zinc lu the ground. Wartime consumption was terrific, even thought a third of the and nearly half the copper and lead consumed were imported. A subsidy on all scarce metals production, it is argued, would cause I over-production. That would force I down the price. That in turn would lake it necessary to pay still high- subsidies to meet the difference between low- market price and high reduction cost. This could lead o a vicious downward price spiral laryngitis which last two or vhich would cost the government cnonths. They ^are_ botlicrsoin ar more than the $400 million. FKAIt OF NATIONALIZATION OF MINES The War Department has taken no official position on this subsidy .lolicy question. Irelicving that is UP to congress. Undersecretary of Wai 1 Kenneth C. Royall, however, in testimony before thc House Mining subcommittee has pointed out that over-stimulation of production by subsidy payments might defeat Its own purpose by depleting domestic sources.' Army-Navy Munitions Board has strategic materials stockpiling as its responsibility, but is limited by law to building up reserves from sources which do not compete with domestic supply. ANMB Is also prohibited by law from paying.^iibsi- dlcs. Chief backer of the Russell bill the National Minerals Conservation Council, headed by Prof. Edwin R. Shorey of Madison, Wis. 'Hie Council includes Colorado, Black Hills, Oregon, the Tri-State M issouri -Kansas-Oklahoma. and other local mining associations. One reason the bigger, low-cost mine owners oppose subsidies is the fear that they will lead to nationalization of all mines.

Cac- rctary of .Agriculture Clint Anderson says, not so. He can't imagine why meal prices slunild have jumped so high; he -says ii is :i mystery. His optimistic helpers say they don't think costs will go iniicli higher. Other experts talk learnedly about the historic price curve of meat, which goes up in the Summer and down in the Fall.
