The one who takes lilllc thought for «llicr-t Is not grateful for his blessings.. clined to believe, is that Hie were simply tokens of appreciation for American lielp; iMost of them contained such native delicacies as olive oil, ch-ied figs, nuts and honey. Perhaps 50 or 60 of the 40,000 Mr. Boorsis guessed, included somu Greek sanaagu. American food must have helped lo keep a good many Greek bodies and souls together during the last six yours. What is more natural then, that Circ-cks who had survived through this American help should want to express their thanks? ~The thing that wo find surpritiinijr, and a little disheartening, is (he storm of suspicion that blew up us soon us the receipt of those Greek packages was made public. The world and ils thinking must ho in a sorry stale when the warm, instinctive emotion of gratitude seems to be the last tiling that people expect. 'How About;Getting a Rail and Helping Out?' ' Split Political Personality - .The split personality of commim- 4m in Uiis country is pointed out by a "provision in the new labor law which in effect makes it illegal lor a. Communist to hold office in a labor union. As things stand now a Communist, while barred from union office, may theoretically hold public office. Communist, candidates for President receiv- ed'votes in 37 states in 1032, in 34 states in 103G, and in 24 tour years . later. The courts of some states have held thai calling a person, a Communist can constitute libel. It is not libclous to call a man a Republican in the Deep South, or a Democrat in Vermont. Yet the Communist, like the Democrat or Republican, belongs to a legitinia'.n political party which can nominate cmicii- dates and, if it can persuade enough voters, elect; them. Well, what is the Communist Party? Is it an organization which owea allegiance to and takes orders from a foreign power, and which seeks to overthrow the United States government by force? Or is it a legitimate political group operating within the structure of our ."gbjjprnnient, obeying the requirements-'and enjoying the protection of our state and national laws'.' The answer to both questions is yes—unless one chooses lo disregard all the available evidence which supports the first question. So what is to be Jone about it? Secretary of Labor Schwellonbach's suggestion, that the Communist Party be outlawed has gained no headway. The chief argument against it is that outlawing would simply drive the Communists to cover and make them harder to identify and root out of places where they can do great harm. Perhaps that is so. Perhaps party membership should not be made a uuir ishable offense. But it does seem too bad that something can't be done to end the silly fiction that the Communists are no different from the old-line minority parties which, while hopeless, are generally well-meaning and patriotic. As for the law against Communist.-; in union office, it would seem that it might be more democratic and effective to let the unions do their own .. , purging. And why not include, by name, Klansmen, Columbians and other of their stripe—since they arc jusl as un American as the Communists, if pet- haps less violent? Also, why limit the ban to unions in a labor relations law? Logic suggests ' that Communist officers ,ot" corporations would be just as dangerous.

One or the worst Icatures of Federal is the power upon it exerted by a lew individuals V these individuals have personal pivju- ilccs they can do the country much harm We need economy, bill not economy by iircjudice. The HO.USC committee's report Lures large evidence of prejudice. The clearest example ol Hits wns li'0 proposed cut of 30 per cent In the appropriation for' economic research in Ihe Bureau of Agn- cultural Economics. One o[ Secretary Wallace's nnjor orgaiir/.allon blunders was assigning a pollcy-makins; role to Ihis Bureau. This mistake was corrected .1 year ago, and me budget fully adjusted for Ihe change, mil some congressmen still insist, on punishing Die Bureau lor uollcy inouucemcnUs II once made. House report allowed in lull for con- the Bureau's work or collcctitn; estimates of crop and livestock production, but most ol the so-called economic research ol Ihe Bureau consists either of collecting current, dalr. on prices, costs, land values and Ihe like, or summarizing and Interpreting these and the crop and livestock estimates, and presenting • Hie results in a highly useful set or current, "situation" reports. Without such presentation, halt the values ot the data are lost. Other prejudices are shown iu reducing the appropriation lor forest survey work. The Forest Service Is now eiiRUBeil in a careful appraisal of the forest situation, (lie resulus of wliich are appearing in a series ot excellent reports. The strongest prejudices exhibited by House committee are, of course, against Farmers' Home Administration, formerly Farm Security Administration. Yel two of the most significant developments in the whol; lils- lory of agriculture in the United Slates trom 1033 to 1942 were the system ol FSA loans lo disadvantagcd farm families lo enable them lo become more productive, and the FSA system of loans to tenants to enable them lo buy family-sire farms. Whatever the reasons advanced by Uie House committee for largely eliminating activities, the real reasons trace back lo a lack of sympathy in certain House leader.; with surli undertakings. In spite of Ihe newness ot these two programs, they arc already highly successful. Agriculture is people as well as .crop.; and livestock. 1'olitlcs aside, this is a tact some Congressmen have still to learn. — CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR.

WASHINGTON. July 2. (NEA) — lotlest topic of conversation ill Vnslilngton today Is what John L. .ewis will U'y to do with the new 1'aft-llartley labor law. As usual .ewis is playing his cards pretty lose to his chest, .so nobody really knows. Dul every labor lawyer In own is experting the situation, with some amazing deductions. Most Hopeful possibility is for Lewis and the os>erators to get together and make a new contract. The Taft-Hartlcy ammcudmcnts lo the Wagner National Labor Relations Act don't take effect till Aug. X). Any new one-year agreement made between Lewis and the coal operators could therefore disregard entirely these new restrictions. This solution Is about, the only hope for peace in the coal industry. It would Rive Lewis and the operators lime to work out a new eon- tract under the Tuft-Hartley Inw. Chances for this happy solution are considered slim. It will be recalled that L'-'uis took a terrible beating from the government earlier this year, a court injunction lo force the united Mine • Workers to live up to terms of the so-called Krhg-Lcwls contract. The union and Lewis were both fined. COAL coui.i) HI; TIKI> ur A YKAU OR I.ONpKK Cilvint! I hi!

The operators had never accepted the King-Lewis contract. BO them Is .110 chance of its beUia continued. There is likewise uo ' chance of going back to the 1945 contract between Lewis and the "operators. There is also no chance for the government to get another injunction against the United Mine Workers union. The reason is thai the Smilh-Connally law which authorized the government to seize struck industry also expired c June 30. Only way out of that siL nation would be for Congress to ic- pass the Smilh-Connally Act. ' government would then have the. mines unnln and re-sign the j might Kriig-I.ewis contract, which nobody wants. The miners are July 1.

C.. who is her guest. The wedding of Miss Juani'a Smith and Kent Whittcn Goodman was solemni/.ed this morning, 10:30 gave it to the Federal Security A- scncy. And what Ibis country needs now is a special employment service for a jobless cabinet member. The Secretary of Labor is Lewis B. Schwcllonbach, who gave up a life-time post as a Federal judge to take over his disappearing job. He has three undersecretaries. These dignitaries plus thousands of clerks (mostly ladies), function in one of the most magnificent of al\ the marble halls on Constitution Avenue. They soon will have nothing to o witli any important labor prob- ems. They run the Women's Bu- eau and they supervise the cal- ulnting machines of the Bureau if Labor Statistics, which issu'es noiithly figures on wages, the cost if living and such. One wise-cracker called Secretary Schwcllenbach the only bureau chief in the president's cabinet. Another nicknamed him the Secretary of Labor Statistics. Anybody who has an urgent labor problem must soon ignore the Secretary of Labor, because the federal agencies in charge of labor be somewhere else. The Federal Security Agency tries to find jobs for the jobless. The National Labor Relations Board, which will administer most, of the new Tafl- Hartley Act. is an independent outfit. So will be the Conciliation Service. "And the House has refused any appropriation at all for the Labor Standards Division, moaned Sen. Barkley. "It will die altogether, unless the Senate can do something. So we take away the employment service and what have we got at the labor department?" Sen. Joseph II. Ball of Minn., answered lhat one.

Tn the later' case South would have bid wo spades and North then could have bid four spades. However. s a safe way to play it? lie should cash the ace of hearts and ruff a leart in dummy. If he takes the spade finesse now, West will win. lead back either the king of hearts or a spade, and declarer stiil will have to guess the diamond.
