The Commission System How About Air Base? The plan adopted by the Cily Council calling for » commission system to regulate the water company, when and if the city buys it, is the only sensible manner of administering such a program. Briefly, it provides that three Blytheville business men will be appointed to serve as commissioners. They will constitute the board of directors, BO to speak, fin'! the manager will be responsible to them. This should serve to keep the water company, still assuming the city will buy same, well out of polities' way and that's just where it should be. The commissioners will receive just. 810 per meeting snd not more thnn §250 in any year. In other words, the only opportunity commission membership will offer will be that of serving the city. t Civic clubs have been asked to submit the names of six men (not necessarily members of the respective clubs) for consideration by the City Council, These clubs should act promptly on this invitation and thereby perform a useful civic service. And on the subject of commissions, JIayor Dan Blodjrett has threatened several times to create an air base commission, which doubtless would be set up along the same lines as the proposed water commission. After Mayor Blodpett's election, this newspaper endorsed the proposed commission system for operating the nir base in reviewing his platform planks. We still do, and encourage any action which will bring the base under the control of a commission of non-office holding, responsible citizens. than rt«tem«*«d mm*»ry op«r*ticmis art nec««6«rily good for us. It would be pretty foolhardy at this stage to predict glibly that a settlement Is in early prospect, or in prospect at all. If no real agreement is to be achieved, then what have we gained by this painful process of talking with the Reds? \Ve have reduced the fighting to » minimum and thus cut casualties sharply. Yet that very gain carries within it the seeds of danger. For during this convenient lull the Communisls have built up a strong defensive air force, vastly improved their anti-aircraft emplacements, augmented their regular artillery and constructed defenses in depth. In other words, they have gone far toward recovering or surpassing the military potential they had before the UN's successful smashes in the spring of 1051. Naturally we have not born idle in the field, either. Rut it w a s the UN force that held the edge when Iruce talks began, and there is no longer any assurance we still would have it. Very likely the i'inr> fighting trim we were in at that limn is n thing of the past. The Reds needed to negotiate when the talks began. Today they continue them because the maneuver keeps us in the hole. We can see no great advantage in talking, yet the alternative of resuming full war seems worse, especially under the altered circumstances of combat. Possibly the current course of continuing apparently fruitless Inlks is still (he wisest. But if that, is so, we ought to pursue it positively after exhaustive top-level review of the whole Korean problem. As it stands now, we simply are drifting along in a negative style, improvising from day to day. We need a fresh approach that suggests more than that we are just in a nil and trying to make the best of it. Too much is at stake in Korea to allow policy to be played by ear by the men in the field, however competent they may be. If the Korean war was worth fighting, it is worth the attention of our top men today, so that we may determine anew where we should try to go.
