Prices and Politics Senator Baldwin of Connecticut, a " freshman Republican member, look his upper-class party colleagues to task the other, day. for .failing to do something to lower prices. He said the Republicans had assured the public ii. all good faith that price decontrol would bring- relief. Now, he said, it was up to them to: find out why it-hadn't. . We hope Mr. Baldwin's rebuke will bririg^ some : results at the corner butcher shop. But we doubt, that in putting'the finger of blame on his party he has also put it on the key to the mystery. For that's,what tho. present, high .price, of food seems to be—a Class .A, feature-length mystery. Since'nobody seems to, know, who is responsible for the sudden price rise, it-is impossible to prove that Republicans are to blame.-In'fact, the besb information on soaring, prices, eapecia'- ly meat prices, seems to be on tlv> negative side. i Present prices don't seem to be the result of price • decontrol, which is months-'old no\y,_.The .predicted.; .rise after j=jDPA ceilings - w,ere lifted was followed "by a lowering and leveling off before this 'recent upshoot. And high prices don't seem- 10 be the result of exports ( to Europe, either, though that explanation has been given. Overseas shipments now amount only, to about 2 per -cent of our lotal meat production. 1C Congress fails to renew export controls before July 1, howeverj that' figure could be disturbingly different. They don't seem to be the result of shortages. There may be spotty, local shortages, here and; there, but the country's general supply is reported to sufficient. '> The retail meat dealers, wh<> are beginning to run into buyer resistance again, don't like the present prices. The big packers profess to be against them. The consumer certainly doesn't like them. But someone evidently does. So we hope the Republican senators dig into the subject. We hope, too, that the Democratic Commerce and Agriculture Departments give the matter a little attention, too. And we'd like to see any private citizen with' pertinent information step ' up and .tell the gentlemen in Washing- what they know. Senator Baldwin expressed the pre' ( _, vailing sentiment, we believe, whoa he contradicted himself by saying, "I do not believe- our people are nearly -so much interested in placing the blame «e they are in lowering prices." last fall, Dr. Munoz claimed diplomatic immunity. His claim was sustained by authority higher than that of the arresting officer Dr. Muhoz also claimed' ignorance of the law which permits two wheels on the gravel. But that seems no.reawn for the pulliiig of diplomatic rank and the unpleasantness that followed. The principle of. diplomatic inmuin- - ity can be understood. Especially in the UN's case* is it possible that important international business might be delayed by a key delegate's involvement in a minor local affair. At the same time, traffic laws nre enacted for reasons of safety. A person killed by an immune diplomat's vehicle is jirst as dead us if he wore killed by an ordinary citizen subject to all the ordinary rules and regulations. It would seem much simpler if the UN delegates, while they live here, would conduct themselves as polite guests. To do, when in Jersey, as the Jorscyiles do should not put too great a strain on diplomatic pride, oiv interfere unduly with world deliberations. VIEWS OF OTHERS Petrillo Trimmed The Supremo Court has declared constitutional the so-called Lea Law which wan passed tor the specific purpose of curlilng the activities of Jtunes Cfiesar Petrillo, president, and dictator of the American Federation ol Musicians. Mr. Petrillo bus long, been in need of a trimming that would bring him down to llorniru slice, and it may be hoped that the Supreme Court's rulings makes the process speedily possible. James Caesar mis long ridden high in the saddle and roughshod over the inanilust. rights of those who employ members of his federation and of the Anierloan people generally. In effect, we think it Is fair to sixy that Mr. Pelrillo's tactics amounted to restraint of trade and u> assumption of. the right to lay tuxes. There is no shred of justice, for example, In forcing radio stations and others to hire musicians they do not want and do not need. There, is no suggestion of fairness in pcrrtHllnE My. Petrillo to demand and receive royalty on every phonograph record made. Mr. Petrillo lias talked rtahcr largely and vaingloriously of : what he would ami would not do in case the Supreme Coure< ruled against him.. 1-ior the, sake of his own union's members and Ihe cause of organized labor in general, he will now do well' to become as any ordinary man and abide by the spirit amid letter or the low. lie has already made his .name symbolic with the worst abuses o( which organized later has been guilty, and diniblic patience. Is already mighty short as far as he is concerned. Any attempt to evade the law hereafter would receive the condemnation and, retribution it, would -merit. COMMERCIAL APPEAL {Diplomatic. Immunity Say what you will, the United Nations is a.powerful organization in at east one respect. Its delegates can throw a traffic summons in a police- . man's face and;get away with it. But •while we regard this gesture of brav- *do with a touch of envy, we can't s»jr,-that we entirely approve.

SO THEY SAY DOCTOR SAYS BY \VILMAM A. O'BRIEN, M. I). Written fur NKA Sen-Ice Present day practice of getting patients out of lied as soon as possible after on illness or operation Is based on scientific tests which proved that prolonged bed rest tends to b e weakening. It slill is advisable to stay in bed during the early stages of disease, immediately following operations and in the treatment of certain chronic infections. Most patients who are kept in bed for a long lime show relaxation of their muscles, loss of tone, and slowing down of metabolism, They develop marked personality changes rharactemed by withdrawal from their former interests and the development of a stale of dependency. Dr. Ancel Keys, during World 'War II, conducted experiments the Physiological Hygiene Laboratory of the University of Minnesota on the effects of spending three or four weeks in bed. He found that it required at least four days to regain some of the bodily functions which had grown weaker and that complete restoration to normal did not take place for several weeks, even though physical training programs were attempted. BED EXERCISES RECONDITION Exercises in bed can be started on the first post-operative day in uany. cases. These stimulate respir- iticn and circulation and lessen he chances of complications, according to Ralph A. Pi]5er who lad charge of Ihe Physical Recon- litioning program in te Army Merl- cal- Corps. Exercises following operations on patients with injuries to bone s and joints have been in voeue for some time but exercises 'or patients who have had other types of operations or diseases are By FREDERICK C. OTHMAN United 1'rcss Staff CorresiHinacnt WASHINGTON, June 30. (UP.) —My chore today Is to prove that the gentlemen were no'-, either, ghouls. Two years ago, you may remember, President Trumin recommended a law to take care of our vice-prcsidcntlessness. If the President died, the President aiici. l|t tho Job go to Ihe speaker*; illQ House. After the Republican-, got in control of Congress untl elected one of their men as spoaki':- this year, they decided gcou Truman Has Two Courses of Action to Meet First Challenge Presented by Tait-Hartley Act Ity i'KTBIl EftSON NEA Washington ('orre.sponilniit WASHINGTON, June 30. (NEA> — Now. that the Tall-Hurtley labor bill is law whether you like It or not, the next question is how to make it work. All these laws have n way of panning out different from what was intended.>or lawyers are looking for loopholes. So ninny of the predictions of dire consequences may go haywire. First challenge to President .Truman will come in naming two new National Lubqr. Relations Board members and n new general counsel who will now be a separate prosecutor before the board. While the changes in the Wagner Act do not beroinc effective until Aug. 22. the President "may" appoint the three new officials at once. The law does not say the President "must" or "shtill" name them at, once. That gives him two possible courses. He can let L these appointments go until Congress adjourns about a month from now, then make recess appointments. Handled this way, the new officials would not have to be confirmed by the Senate till it convenes in special session next fall or-in regular .session next January. Thus the President, might appoint, men who would administer the law more to organi/ed labor's liking. Truman's other choicetis to say to the Republicans in the Senate: "Okay, this is your baby. Since you think it will grow up to amount to something, you tell me what, men you want to nurse it. and I'll appoint 'em." There is recent precedent for this \ind of appointment — Republican Congressman Robert F. Jones of Ohio being named to the FCO. six <)!•• ONI;, HALF A DO/EN OF THE OTIIF.K Prom purely political points of view there are advantages to both Republicans and Democrats in let- Jug GOP leaders pick the n^'.v NIKB officials. If the bill doesn't work and gets labor relations all snarled up in t!\o next year, Domocrats can enter the 1948 elections saying, "We told you so. Look how the Taft-IIartley Acl. brought on more strikes." If the new law is all the Republicans say it is, Uicy can tell the voters in 1048, "Look what a fine new :obor law we gave you, and note that it took Republican administrators to bring you peace." While none of the members ol Congressional Labor Committees' who wrote this new law would want, these jobs, early speculation on possible nominees has brought up the names of the men who played an Important behind-the-scenes part in drafting the measure. They include Theodore R. Iserman of New York and William Ingles of Washington, both high- priced labor consultants who probably couldn't afford to work fo:- governmcnt salaries. Iscroian is a Chrysler lawyer who lias written and spoken a great deal against the Wagner Act. Ingles is Washington lobbyist for Alis-Chamers, 'J. I. Case, Pruchaut, Inand Stce, American Mining Congress and the Fair: Corporation. Tic is also reprsenta- tlve of the Foremen's league for Education, organieed to combat unionization of supervisory employes. At a working level were Gerald D. Morgan and Gerald D. Rellly, both Washington labor consultants. Morgan was for a number of years on the staff of the House legislative counsel. He was special counsel to the House Labor Committee. Reillv was formerly solicitor for the Labor Department and NLRR. Later lie served as a member of the Labor Board. He was an adviser to the Senate Labor committee in tlraf*;- 'ing its bill. But he. too. says he can't afford the job. • UCHIBTS LAW'S WORKABILITY Gerald P. Van Arkel. whoservcd as counsel to the present three- member Labor Hoard, resigned almost immediately after the Senate voted to override the President's veto because lie has doubts auou the law's workability. Present members of the board J besides Chairman Herzog, whose term expires in August 1050, are ex-Congressman John M. Houston, whose term ends in August 1043, James H- Reynolds, whose term runs until 1351. One of the "now appointees will serve till AugU'Jt 1943, the other till August 1952. The pny is $12,000. The first year ol the new five- man board's service will be the hardest. It. will take that, long c,r> get a few test cases through the courts and find how the law will be interpreted. The real payoff under the bill may iv.>t como until ntxt spring, w>u:ii most of the big labor contracts cojne up for renewal. relatively new.

ON BRIDGE Simple Plays Trap Even the Experts By .WILLIAM E. McKENNF.Y Amonca's Canl Authority Written for NKA Service The summer session of the na- ional championships tournament will be held in the nir-concliunnec' grand ballroom of the Hotel St. eorge in Brooklyn.

The play revolves around the first trick. What would you piny from dummy on the ten of spades? Those who went up with the pack or spades lost the contract. East won and came back with the queer of clubs, and declarer lost two clubs, a spade and a cliajnond. Hazcn played on the five of spnrtcs from dummy on the first trick, nd East put on the seven. West ealizcrt that continuation of a idea. Their Sen. Kenneth Wherry of Neb. wrote such -.x bill an.l brought it up for a vote. The Democrats didn't like anything about it. And their Sen. Aluen W. TJarkley of K.V., tried to vt to it. Now go on with the dialogue; "SupjKJSe on Jan. 20, inauguration day," cried Sen. I),, "(he President-elect is ill. Ill) it in a hospital. He is unconse.kuH. He cannot lake the oalh of odice. 3'> the speaker has to rjs'tjn from Congress in order in (nke i!ic oath as President. And then Ihe President recovers, fie goes hnek tti work.

Sen. Barkley tried the retort ironic. Ho said he suppose,I ac'.unl- ly the Speaker wouldn't have to accept the presidency ol' the United Slates. "That's absolutely coiTccV cho*'- lied Sen. Wherry. "H'.>. wouldn't resign to become Pr.'.jincrr.T; for just one week," i/ "There's no way to force a man to become President." fit.ii. Baikley agreed, "but no matter how briefly he acted as President, he'd have to resign from Congress." So there was some nvire palnvtr. Numerous Democrats offered amendments to thwart President Truman's ideas. And here was Sen. Barkley with another rjiira- tion. "Suppose the President becomes insane?" he asked. "Even if he _ were tried by a lunacy court ami i committed to an insane :.syli,in, there is no law that v/r.uut hold him to lie disabled." He said there ought to bo a law. Sen. wherry said, what kind of law? Sen. Barkley said that ought to be investigated. "Investigated?" repe.ititl Sen. Where. "This subject w-Js investigated by Congress uui.ii it vvas exhausted in 1CS6. We .-.tudicrl if. again in isgli. We're 3thl studying it." Sen. Richard B.
