Short-Sighted Economy The War Assets Corp. recently no- ounced the sale of 702 surplus' nir- lane engines to three airlines. The ale 'brought the government $7,312,38, or nearly)75 per cent of the original ost. But before the country's taxpayer. 1 ! xtend this agency a vote of thanks, t might be well to look a bit further. In the month of January, the entire ^.nierjeari aircraft engine industry turn- id pi»t 23 engines for military planes. [Ths' only other engines built were a : ew. for' 1 'small aircraft.) A strike in plants" producing jet and turbine engines V&s filially responsible for this small figure. But the principal reasons werje $$ sharf) curtailment of military proijiir^rheHt'smd the sale of the surplus engines, to commercial lines- These lines now have on order 554 new 'transport will require 1566 engines. ' But the War Assets Corp. is expected to have more than 72,QpO' aircraft engines and spare parts available'by June. If one-third of these are* saleab|e| the government might receive 'around §650,000,000 for them over, a period of years. But, since all but a few of the big new transports can be ' powered by surplus engines, this > sale might close the whole commercial airline field to the aircraft engine industry for years to come. In the past this field has taken more than half of the engine production. Remove thfit market, equip most of the few military planes scheduled for 1946 production with surplus engines, and where does that leave the aircraft engine industry—and the national defense? The answer is: right where the industry and the national defense were, after the last war, when surplus Liberty engines stymied and stifled the development of new airplane power plants for 14 years. It seems inevitable that the most important aeronautical changes in the coming years|will be in propulsion units. We are in the threshold of a reyolution- 1 ary change in such units. The conventional engines that the War Assests Corp. is selling will be obsolete for military purposes in a short time. It"is not enough to draw plans and makje working models of new jot and missiles. They must be put on n practical production basis, developed, tested, aiid Changed. Our aircraft engine build- ers'are now equipped to do r thfa. But they Vil.l not be; so' equipped for very long if,"*their $!«£ source of revenue is closed to them. Their best minds will b<j\ forced into other fields, the winning\wartime team will )>e broke" up, and our national safety will suffer. Shortly ."Uter V-K Day, a spokesman for'the Aviation Division of the Surplus War Properly' AdtninistratJqn said' that t\yo things \should be made Q)e'ar in the problem-:; of surplus aircraft disposal: No appreciable arnovint pf rnopev was going to ; lie'recovered,'and 'thg disposal program')would have to be planned as n positive contribution to" Anjerican aerial progress. The program, this spokesman sail, would haye^ the power to ' make orj break our A't.ure it) aviation. That last statement still seems- to hold true. J£ut the 'renson'injf; behind the first' two • apparently" h'&s Been forgotten. If the • present policy of shortsighted economy con'tijiues, \ye shall again find ourselves left far behind. And next time—if unhappily, there . should be a next time—it is unlikely that there would be' an equivalent of the French and British aircraft; 'orders of 1939-40, which gave "iis tjyo, peacetime years for a breathless, sprint in which to, try to catch up >|fith the rest of th£ world. They've Got Something There The new Jap constitution abolishes war as the' nation's sovereign right forever, renounces threat or use of force in settling disputes, and forbids future authorization of any army, navy! air forte, or other war potential .or aaump- tion of the rights of belligerency by the stale. We move the immediate and unanimous adoption .of this portion of the Japanese 'constitution by all the nations on the face o't the earth.

(NEA1 — ix Dutch'newspaper editors have list completed a six-week tour of he United states as guests of the 3tate Department. This is purl of he horribly named "cullural regions program." II has been goia on since before liie war. anil Con- ;ress willing, it will be continued. The idea Is that these visiting writers will have acquired a beltci understanding of the U. S. that us n result their articles In hometown • newspapers will convey Co the foreign public a belle Impression of the American stan dnrd of living and point of view. For American readers \vho never see their pieces in the Dutcl papers, th c interesting thing is th variety of impressions the visitin scribes take home. Visitors on tlu-se conducted loin usually get a chance lo see more of the United States than most Americans ever do. They hit Harvard and Hollywood. They look down from the top of thc Empire State Building in New York and from the top of the Mark in San Francisco. In between, they see such high spols ns Ihe Detroit assembly lines, the Chicago stockyards, the Dutch colonies in Grand R'ap- ds and Holland, 'Mich., the Arizona desert, the Tennessee Valley, nnd Washington, D. C. Doors are swung open as if by magic. They seo and interview milo magnales, movie slars, scientists, labor leaders, and politicians. It's th c best, short course in Americana that can be devjsed. It should raako any visitor an expert on the U. S. A. VISITORS' IMPRESSIONS DIFFER And yet the six Dutchmen survived their tour with pretty mixed impressions. They were a varied lot to begin with. H. J. Hcllmnp is a U. S. sctenlLsls, particularly the youngsters who worked on the tomic bomb project at Oak Ridge, Term. little. Senators Conally nnd van- little.

UOKIIIOAM; SITUATION Anno wouldn't give us the names, nut a film queen called her on the phone one day recently and screamed: "I'm so mad at you I conl'.l sue." "What's the trouble." asked A;me. "Well," raged the actress. "rtoo>: my Scotl'ie to a parly last night and both of us were horribly embarrassed. Another Scottie there was wearing an identical coat!" Anne Ardmore, a former Chicago clothes designer, stalled Hollywood Dog Togs four years ago \vheu her husband, a Hollywood press agent, was drafted. .She made the coats herself on a home sewinlf machine. The business lias since developed into a retail store, managed liy her returned husband, and a battery of six sewing machines. "We probably would have done belter except for the OPA," Anne said.
