This is the day Btytlieville's Boys ami Girls week seeks to point up the importance of n wholesome and worthwhile home life. Actually, there is little this project cnn rlo to improve the home life of the city's children. There is a lot each individual can do, however, and only through such an effort, repeated many timeE, cnn progress be made in improving the community in this respect. Perhaps the most important thing in considering what makes for a good home life is simply an awareness on the part of both parents that what they say and do about the house is important. Once a parent starts thinking in that direction, he's well on the road to improving his personal habits and those of his children. And the grim stale of the world attests to the need for sending our children out with the very best of moral equipment. So remember, it is important what a parent does with and to his children. It is from the parent that a child derives the whole pattern of his thinking and living. Try in every way to make the example you're setting a good one. Russian Offer to Germany !s Old Trick of Delusion Russia's call for a peace conference on Germany is one of the more astute propaganda moves the Kremlin has made in recent months. Its appeal lo the German mind is powerful. The Russians urge a unified Germany with its own independent military force, a country wholly free of occupation armies. They suggest the Germans be allowed to develop their economy without limit and to trade as they wish. They even hint Germany might have a chance to regain eastern territory which was handed to Poland at the close of World War II. The Western powers obviously can offer nothing so attractive as this. They alone cannot unify Germany. They cannot promise return of any land except the western Saar region. Their military proposition is for German arm- id units welded into a six-nation Euro- peen army. And they seem disinclined to make sweeping economic concessions. The Soviet scheme inevitably strengthens the hand of Chancellor Adenauer's opposition in Germany, since groups like Kurt Schumacher's Social Democrats have long assailed him for conceding too much to the Western pow- e«. Now tii«f have more ammunition. It is even likely that many in both Britain and Franch will find the Russian proposal appealing. That is, within limits. France could not be expected to like the idea of a revived independent German army, nor Britain lo approve a Germany freed of all trade fetters. But the prospect of some kind settlement for Germany has its understandable fascination for n Kurope sick of problems. In the end, however, the transparency of this latest Russian device must be evident to all. What a futile thing it is to sit at the peace table with the Soviet Union has been well illustrated by the Interminable delays over the Austrian treaty, and Pamnunjom, where the Russians stand behind the actual Red negotiators, is a more current example. Oilier parts of the Soviet proposal are equally suspect. The withdrawal of foreign troops always has been a phony, inasmuch as it would leave the Russians at the adjacent German-Polish border, while American forces would retire across 3000 miles of ocean. The offer of sweeping economic freedom and of an independent armed force is so at odds with earlier Russian attitudes that these features can hardly be laken seriously. It used to be a favorite Kremlin sport to claim that the West was allowing Germany too much freedom to rebuild. Reduced, to treaty terminology as conceived by Moscow, these items of bail probably would look less inviting to the Germans. Bui in their present form they are hard for any German leader to just sniff at. We and our partners in the West have a tough chore ahead—convincing the Germans that the roseate dream just fabricated by the Russians is a snare and a delusion, with the real aim of disrupting the defensive unity and strength of the forces of freedom. 'Keeps Looking Better and Better for Me' Views of Others An American Citizen Still Is Held in a Red Prison April 23rrt is a dark anniversary in American history. On that day, one year ago, William N. Oatis, Associated Press correspondent, was arrested nml Jailed In Communist Czechoslovakia. Since then no American has been allowed to speak lo him and, despite protests of our President, our State Department, our Congress, Oalis has been held in prison. This action is in defiance of all Individual rights, all Intcrnalional agreements. Oatis was seized in Prague and charged with espionage. His "spying,"'liT-'fict, was that he fulfilled the obligation of every 'newspaperman to find the truth nnrt report it. Such a practice was disturbing to the Reds and they arrested Oatls and sentenced him to 10 years. Our government, after failing to free the reporter by diplomatic negotiations, began an economic squeeze that has cost the Czechs some t25,000,000. The United States also stopped travel of private American citizens in Czechoslovakia and refused to allow Czech airplanes to fly over Western Germany. Czechoslovakia has felt the" effect of the restrictions and Is dickering for an easement. Indicating they are considering Gratis' release. It Is regrettable that we must use embargo and restriction to gain freedom for an American citizen: but if those are the only effective instruments, then we must use them. The intolerable Injustice to William Oatis must end. —Atlanta Journal SO THEY SAY Peter Edson's Washington Column — American Trade Laws Oppose Our Onm Interests in Europe WASHINGTON -- (NEA) — U.S. delegates to the recent Economic Commission for Europe meeting In Geneva, Switzerland, came back pretty well beat down.

This was the theme that was also repeated at the more recent Moscow trade parley.

Recently the Poles made i clear that they would not suppl; coal to western Europe unless the. would furnish strategic machim tools In exchange. • • * ORDINARILY, these countrie would have turned down the Polls: request without hesitation ; bought their coal from the U. But after counting the dollars tha they could earn by selling les cheese to the U. S., and all th dollar-aid they might receive in ad dition, they found they could possibly afford to buy America coal. Tf the cheese amendment coul have been repealed, the problem :ould have been solved without difficulty. If it can't be repealed, the alternative seems to be to give the coal away, to the detriment c-f the Mutual Security program which might well use the money for munitions to better advantage, and at the expense of the American taxpayer. Southern Italy offers another example of how the cheese amendment has worked against American interests. Southern Italy is notoriously poor. With a great deal of unemployment, it has been a fertile ground for Communist agitators.
