' i '1 Air Inquiry The President's appointment i>C a board of inquiry on air safety may lead pome to wonder what another ir.-.vcni- ment investigation can accomplish. Probably no one knows precisely, but Certainly every possible means of rccluc- }ng air crashes should be explored. "T" Postwar commercial flying scums to have suffered from an undue haste to start or resume business which lias resulted too often in carelessness or had judgment. On most occasions these piay prove harmless, but on the exceptional occasion they are 'fatal. .cause America, Britain, and New /ea- laiul have announced a new secret weu- ' pon, they are the only countries pursuing a successful search. Such research cannot be slopped' (short of killing all the world's scientists) except by an agreement to control it. That control will surely require an international strength and authority, • and a surrender of sovereignty and secrecy, never contemplated before by the world's governments But there is no alternative so long as jealousy and distrust exist between government*. It is time diplomats began thinking more of human lives and less of national pride. It is lime they began feeling , the desperate urgency their task demands. Meanwhile the Patient Grows Wor'se Air accidents cannot lie eliminated, of course, but they can be reduced. H a thorough government inquiry reveals that there must be a period of stopping and starting over, then let there l>e one. Meanwhile, it is proper that Mrv Truman.has made the whole matter ; his own and the nation's concern. Science and Diplomacy '•-. ,'A few days ago Russia's delegate to the UN Atomic Energy Commission presented/a -new.-plan for international, corfti&l of nuclear power. It represented his government's first step toward compromising thei differences between its previous program and the generally accepted American plan. For that reason Mr. Gromyko'." new Btatement was greeted with what is Jinown as cautious optimism. What tempered the rejoicing was Mv. Gro- jnyko's silence on two subjects. He did pot mention international ownerships >nd management of fissionable mater- • ials and atomic energy agreements—a right which Russia demands. For some, the rejoicing was probably .tempered further by the veiled announcement of a new super-weapon which came two days after Mr. Gnr ihyko's statement. This announcement, by a New Zealand scientist, revealed that the new weapon had been developed jointly by the U. S., the United Kingdom, and New Zealand. Beyond that little was said, except that the, new Development might make the atomic bomb seem clumsy by comparison. There we have an example of the difference in method and operation between scientists and diplomats-—a difference which, if left unreconciled, contains an incalculable peril. It ia nearly two years since the first atomic bomb was clropped. In thai time the 'diplomats have not even como close to an agreement on control. In the same time the scientsts may well have, carried their lethal experiments to the point where the new weapon is already obsolete. Surely the settling of human differences over a method of mutual survival i« no more difficult than a blind groping for the key to one of nature's most basic secrets. Yet the human beings concerned with the first problem have Approached it in a spirit of disagreement, while those who have grappled with the second have united their talents in a common purpose. \We do not believe that ;\ pushbutton war or any other sort of war id imminent. But agreement on atomic tnergy control is not imminent, either. And the possibility must be faced that, irhen the nations have really decided an a method of control, science may kave carried the development of mass. • • •xtermination weapons far beyond, , 0 tt »b(>uM .not be thought that, be- VIEWS OF OTHERS Dole Idea Gone Crazy Grant llmt many of our cities and counties need more revenue. But pullliU! them on a dole with stale revenues, as we are doin b ', Isn't a sound course_ This sets up another powerful pressure group for hi«h stole taxes, and the money Is Himply not going to be as carefully spent, as if It were raised with local taxes in tlie city or county. There is too much of a Santa Glaus flavor to revenue that comes from the slate. Looking, into this mnltcr, the Arkansas Public Expenditure Council finds that slate rovcnue grants to the cities mid counties for the 1841-48 fiscal year total alx>ul three times th» amounts given them for the IB45-4G fiscal year. Hero ure the council's figures: ' Municipal Aid, 1045-40, $624,000; tor 1947 r 4S, $1.870.000. County aid. 1045-40, $2,210,000; tor 1847-4B, Stale school aid In the same brief period went up from J12,000,000 to »21,3tt),00t>. Support of the schools is a proper state- Junction—when it Is restricted to providing additional revenue needed after local taxation has paid for its fair share. But tho districts ore not paying what they should, because of low property assessments. And these same low assessments mean that property Isn't payhlj? what it should pay to support local government. The upshot of it all is that taxes have been shlfled largely from proiierty to sales levies on living needs, lo cigarette and income taxes, and the like—Ihis, not only to maintain schools, but to give doles to local governments. That's clearly unjust. And another injustice noted by the Expenditure Council, Is that the city and county doles go alike to those lliat need the money, and those that could ge along without it. The council might have added, anil to those that are taxing home people lightly, as well as to those that are taxing heavier. That's the dole Idea gone crazy. What would you think of welfare checks from the state for everybody; whether they were In want or not; whether they made reasonable eliort to support themselves or didn't? Many states arc considering a relorm ot city-county state aid, the council says. They are thiuMng about laws to allow cities OT counties to vote taxes for their needs and, at the same time, to reduce ccrlaln state taxes, giving local governments a resource to tax. The plan should make for economy. People will be more watchful of local spending If they have to vote the iascs for it on themselves. —ARKANSAS DEMOCRAT Truman Names Committees For Broad Survey of U.

THROW IN AN EXTRA HEART As the doc says, man's enviorn- mont has changed.

S. aid in the next five years. Mr. Truman named three special c6inmlttees to look into the tacts on foreign aid and advise him on the "limits within which the United States may safely and wisHy plan to extend such assistance anil on the relation between this assistance and our domestic economy." Two of the investigating bodies ' will be staffetl and directed by government officals. The third, headed by Secretary of Commerce W. Averell Harriman, will be made of 19 "non-partisan" public figures from the ranks of business, luljor, education, finance and agriculture. The President's action was announced late yesterday after an unusual white house conference attended by a group of his lop cabinet aides, white house advisers and senate leaders from both parties. Mr. Truman's move was a shot in the arm for bi-partisan coopL'nil.icni in the field of foreign affairs.

But gee v.'h'-i; Doc — only two year.s lo make him in? It has taken mankind some' millions of years to emerge this far from the jellyfish stage. J1 will take no mean miracle to metamorphose man into a new model by 1950. But according to Dr. Chisholm— who Is Incidental) 1 no quack lint executive secretary ot tiie United Notions World Health Organization, or WHO — it has to be done. "Revolutionary changes in our in- .vlronmciU during the last two or three years," lie says, ''have made tho past almost entirely irrelevant to the future." That's a lot of psychiatric gobblcdygook. What it means is that things ain't \vhat they used to be and you ain't seen nothiii' yet. * Anyway, since world environment has changed, what is needed is a new type human being. To heck with , this business of trying to make over the world to fit man. Rex Tugwell tried that back in 1933 and made almost no progress. How much sliiipler to make man -ertainly part of the new environ- nenl, and it's hard to tell what's rue and what's false. What tlie made-over 1950 model man needs is a snap in front of the orifice on his cars to permit buttoning down upper and lower lobes. Or else the tongue should be made sensitive to truth and falsehood. When someone starts handing the new human a line, he should be made to stick out his tongue. like litmus paper, to test it. If the tongue turns blue the ultra-modernized man would know that whcit he was saying or hearing or rending so. That would be that. Then there's air conditioning. The old model T man's cooling system of automatic pores to open and exude sweat is pretty obsolete messy. Trying to air-condition houses and offices — changing on the other side. okay. What mankind needs above everything else is a decided change of heart. CAN'T CHANGE HUMAN NATURE With a new heart maybe human beings could get rid of some of their hereditary selfishness, aggressiveness, pugnacity, deceit, r,Ui- pidjty, laziness and genera; all around low down orneryness. And while the doctor is fixing these things up he can also make humankind proof against germs, hangnails, dandruff, arthritis, bad eyesight, cancer, and the common cold. A little adjustment on the timer and intake manifold of the sense of humor, too, please. Anything else? Oh yes. There's that, atom bomb that is chitterin:; up the environment. Heretofore in history mankind has had to combat only nature — including the perversities of human nature. But now, as Dr. Chisholm points oiu, "man faces extinction by the weapons he has created." Well, the only way to keep out atomic rays is to get behind six feet of earth, two feet of concrete and six inches of lead. It will bi> up to the psychiatrists to crossbreed thick-skinned and thick- skulled man to develop a hybrid with a protective epidermis of this nature.

TK1M.MIXC, THE ARCH A Greedy Player Caught Off Guard BY WILLIAM E. McKENNEY America's Card Authority Wrllten for NEA Service I just had a letter from Clare H. "Corky" smith of Pittsburgh, with an invitation to go to the Pennsylvania State Tournament in .Pittsburgh Nov. 14-10. Tournaments arc booked so far ahead these day.; that the invitations come in early. iNorth should have cashed his nine tricks and been satisfied. But he decided to try to sneak through an extra trick. Smith won the ten of clubs with the ace, and thought for a^ while. He knew that declarer had tho ace and king of hearts because his partner had not gone up with either honor. He knew also that the entire spade suit was good, and declarer must have at least the king of clubs — otherwise, why would he have led the ten of clubs? He must have wanted to establish a quick club trick, and from the bidding. North might have a five- card club suit. Experimenter 1810 and 1824, Faraday I ern metallurgical equipment I devised, however, did alloy ! and steels become common possible. Smith decided that diamonds offered the only possibility of any tricks for him and his partner, so he led the diamond king. Though West only could give him thfi three-spot, Smith knew that the deuce was missing, and he continued with a diamond. West won, and the result was that East and •West cashed five diamond tricks.
