Fate of, the. Installment Platfi President Truman, who wwr.ts to see: wartime controls on installment buying continued, lias left it up to'decide the issue. We dun t know how the nation's businessmen feel about it,' but \ve imagine several million of the nation's consumers are awaiting tlie decision with mixed emotions. • Rcmoviil of the fascinating temptation' to make on-lhe-cuff purclutses Has been quite a .strain on'the installmcnl- plan addict. The continuing scarcity or high cash prices of several desirable commodities has increased the tension. At the'same time, several extra hands have-been kept out of the domestic till since the lid went on. The absence of that dollar-tlown-aud-dollar a week grab has added quite 11 sum to a good many family socks. We've* ho' idea what Congress-, will do Jibout it, but one thiiig vu'rc sure of. *A lot of people arc going U' be dis- app'ointed either way. Hobefui Possibilities 'As Secretary of State 'Marshall's nev) proposal for aid to Europe begins to take the shape of a plan it also begins to present some hopeful possibilities-.' These •possibilities may be remote, and tlic hops may seem like un- of Greece, Italy, Austria, Germany, and France -would greatly intensity those problems. If the Soviet government participates in the proposed Marshall program it will probably mean thai Russia, is willing to abandon its policy of expansion until non-Communist Europe is more of a bargain than it is now. If Russia stays out she runs the risk of seeing Europe recover its strength to a point where she might find it hard to sell communism. At any rate, the Marshall proposal gives promise of unified policy and positive action. Certainly it is an improvement, even now, on hit-or-miss loans made for political reasons, an I futile protests made, for the record, against accomplished deeds which this government is powerless to undo. If Mr. Marshall, with ICurone's help, can raise the-issue of economic: recovery above the level of politics), it will In: a humane action which not only should strengthen Europe but also increase American prestige and adviuico the cause of peace and freedom. VIEWS OF OTHERS 'He Said, No! Wai lace's Role due optimism. Yet' the proposal looks like.the..fresh apiironch that has been needed. - .>••'. Many evident difficulties stand in the; wgy pf...the plan's ^achievement. :Th^re is Hie question of getting .the European nations to cooperate. Tltere is the problem of getting a fair and honest appvpjsiil of Europe's needs that would gain the American government's approval without endfcsfi haggling. And there is also the probable difficulty, -of getting thc approval of the American Congress for tlie enormous dollar credits that would be involved. But if. all these things could be accomplished, two important results might be attained beyond the avowed one of getting Europe back on its feet. The agreement of a united Europe on fundamentals of domestic economy and trade might counteract some of the political disagreements of a badly disunited- continent. Economic difficulties are at. the root of some, if not most, of the European countvieV political difficulties. • The postwar physical disabi'it :es of Eurpy&'s .economy cannot be remedied overnight. • But: the: restoration of con- fidepceX,and the check on inflation ' which • American . aid might bring could scarcely fail to ease some of the rawest irritations which torture Eu- rope at present. Another, ..also, optimistic, result might be a b*Uer- answer to the perpetual,, discouraging problem of halting .Russian expansion and restoring friendly relations. Does Russia want European recov- , cry?,Probably not, politically. The more Europe suffers from uncertainty and dissension, from high living costs and low living standards, the bettor chance the Communists .have to gain control. Would Russia w*nt' control of Europe; in its present' depressed state? ( i That is douMiut. Russia^has serious , economic,probletjis.^p.f her own. Control When Henry Wallace was • reported n few days ago as saying that, lie would not support President Truman In 1048 it was widely ns- siimed that this meant he would support. Henry Wallace running on a third-parly ticket. Now he declares it is too early to talk iiboul n third party. If he 1ms changed his views on the question it may be because he hud read thc returns from the Congrcssionnl election in Washington's Third District. Charles Savage, known ns n "Wsillacc man- had defeated a "Truman man" in the primary, but hns now been beaten by missel Muck, Republican supporter of thc bipartisan foreign policy.' If Mr. Wallace had been induced by thc ixipular acclaim at his recent lecture.-; to toy with the third-term notion the detent, of Mr. Savage should help to persuade him to avoid "taking a walk" In 1048. There is little evidence—despite the crowds at his meetings—that a majority or Americans would go all thc way with Mr. Wallace either on foreign or domestic policy. Millions would prefer with him to send plows and ,no guns to Greece. Millions wsint to exhuusl isvcry effort to reach a livc-aml-lct-live basis with Jlussia. Millions of Americans would like to prevent the .United States bccomliiB, us Mr. Wallace says it has. a focus for rcactibn. Right on that question of fact the majority ot 'Americans will disagree with him. They know tlial as the United Stales become.* Hie m:>ln base of opposition to Communism other Interests—political, economic, ecclesiastical-- which oppose Communism arc attempting to control American policy. Yet they believe that it Is basically American concern with hui'uin lights and civil liberties which influenc',^ national policy and resists Russian expansionism. They don't believe thc United Slates is tlie focus ot reaction. Incidentally, si good many liberals. Republicans as well as Democrats, believe Mr. Wallace will only aid reaction by tossing :i third-party hat In thc presidential ring. For h c would draw enough votes from Mr. Truman to insure a Uc- 'publican victory. And thc surer Republican I^rly managers become of winnini', thc lew chance thai they will permit nominsuion of a Liberal Republican.
