We Must Depend on PSC To Set Fair Utility Rates It's only natural thai a goodly hit of grumbling has come from the Blytlie- ville citizenry following announcements by Arkansas-Missouri Power and South- Western Bell Telephone that both will seek rate increases. However, by the nature of some of the complaints, it appears that the griping ia being aimed in the wrong direction. To get to the point, responsibility for protecting the people against unfair utility rates lies with the Arkansas Public Service Commission. Utilities in the United States have been generally set up as monopolies . . . but they are regulated monopolies. This practice is followed with the belief that one utility can more efficiently serve a community or area than several. Therefore, since the public does not get the protection competition usually affords, it is theoretically guaranteed protection by these appointed commissions. Far bo it. from a newspaper, or any layman, to say that a particular rate is too high, too low or just right. Only an expert can examine an audit and come up with those answers. We must depend on our Public Service Commission to see to it that the public does not suffer from abuses by Hie several utilities which serve it. The people are entitled lo expect the utmost diligence on the part of this group. Stevenson Best Answer To GOP Corruption Charge The statement of Governor Stevenson of Illinois in bowing out as a presidential possibility was final enough in tone, b 11 I a little less so in specific, wording. Nevertheless it appears that his mind is marie up and that he rlefinitoly will not be a candidate. Which for the Democrats is too bad. Stevenson was certainly the best het his party had for countering the inevitable Republican campaign theme of corruption in the administration. His record of accomplishment in clearing out corruption in Illinois is an impressive one indeed. It shows what can be done in the field of political slum reclamation when there's a man with the will to do it, When Stevenson took office in 1918, the great state of Illinois was well on the way to being strangled by the corruption in its government. The state police force was shot through with apathy and inefficiency, several departments of the government w«r« notoriously arait-ridden, itat« mental hospital* were nearly a scandal, the school and road systems were in a bad way. Despite the handicap of a Republican legislature during most of his term in office, Stevenson got things done. He reorganized the police force by putting it on a merit basis that separated it from politics, raised requirements for recruits, and set up a stiff training program. He took politics out of the Commerce Commission, overseer of the public utilities, thereby eliminating a big graft source. And he shook up the Department of Agriculture. Improvements were made in the public school system and the mental hospitals. In four years the hospitals .jumped from among the more wretched in the country to a position in the top 25 per cent in Ihe nation. With an improved police force, he began cracking down on tnickers who overloaded in violation of weight limits. He began building up the road system, a move that had been bogged down for years. And not without ils appeal to bureaucracy-haters was his slashing of state payrolls by 1300 in ilis first three years in office. "Our aim," he said once, "has been to do a better job with fewer employes." He said, too, that "the most important achievement of all is intangible— the better moral tone, technical quality, and morale of our slate government." This he accomplished to a large degree by the high quality of the men he appointed to help him with Ihe clean-up job. ironically, it is largely his gratitude to the men who helped him that is keeping him on in Illinois, instead of going out and hustling for the biggest job in the land. He feels he would be walking out on his team before the game was won, That's a most commendable kind of loyalty, even if it means denying to the Democrats a man who might do them a lot of good come the November elections. Much More of,the_Some Views of Others Science and Secrecy Ari science and secrecy compatible? That i& tht question natural scientists have been asking «ver «lnc« * gigantic hush /ell over atomlq experimentation in World War II. Many of them say 'no. The latest warning romes from President Con A til of Harvard University, who dcx-s not question the necessity for secrecy in certain areas of research "in these grim years of rearmament," but who points out that the revolutionary Find significant Hrtvnncps of scientific theory in the pasl hnve come from fre« dlscuwion. And evnr slnre "pure science" entered the lieltl of Invention In the. production of the atom bomb it has been Important to keep *cientific theory progressing nt lensl as fast as productive techniques. In other words. It would be small gam '.o build a hufie stockpile of atom bombs while the stockpile of basic research diminishes, since future advances depend largely on the latter. Dr. Conant considers it important that thr general public should realize the high ccv,t of secrecy In the field of nuclear research. The situation is somewhat analogous to the curtailment of civil liberties involved in the Government's loyalty proerams.

Unfortunately, th play proved that the Iron Dul had a wooden head. East could no win only one other trick—the quee of spades. West was sure to get h ace of diamonds, of course, b South easily won 10 tricks, Now let's return to that, fir trick.

East could therefore be sure i that the jack of spades was in the South hand. If South had the singlslon or rimibleton jack of spades, he would surely play a low card from dum-, my at the first trick to make sure of a spade trick. Unless East thinks that South is a lunatic, he can be sure that. South has at, least three sparlr? headed by the jack. If South has four spades, he has two sure tricks in the suit; and West has made the eccentric lead of singleton. It Is far more likely that South has only three spades, and (hat West had led from doubleton. In short, East can locate all of the missing spades before he plays !o the first trick. Naturally he should play the encouraging eight of spades instead of winning the trick with the ace. The hand hopeless if West cannot win a fast trick, so East cannot lose by refusing the first trick. As it happens, of course. West wins the ace of diamonds in time to load another spade. And then East takes the rest of the spades to defeat the contract.
