Well, think of the good features they're always advancing. If We Bake Larger Economic Pie, There'll Be More to Eat William Green, president of the American Federation of Labor, plans to campaign.for higher wages and lower prices as a cure for unemployment he thinks is growing to serious proportions. In taking this line, Green is following the pat thinking about the economy that unfortunately has impressed many labor leaders. The theory is simple: higher pay and cheaper goods mean greater purchasing power for the consumer, which translates itself into more jobs. The actual workings of the economy are a bit more complex. Lower prices are indeed a desirable goal where- ever possible, but they must be founded on lower costs if a business is not to sell at a loss. Lower costs Cull be achieved in different ways. One is by selling more goods and bus reducing unit cost of articles. A second route is to increase productivity—output per man—either by better organization of work, by improved methods and machinery, or by greater ndividual efficiency among workers. This is the path most businessmen must take to lower prices. With their costs cut, they feel reasonably safe in offering products at reduced figures. They can't lose their shirts while waiting for people lo respond by buying more. When the market is thus built up, fair-minded businessmen pass on some of the added returns to workers as higher wages. But, except where wages have been held down arbitrarily to unreasonably low levels, it should bo plain that higher pay unaccompanied by greater productivity or rapidly expanaing markets is actually an obstacle to lower prices. The businessman simply passes the increase on lo the consumer in HIGHER prices. The key to both lower prices and higher wages is the ability of a business to produce the same amount of goods at Jess cost. That process adds real wealth to the nation, wealth that can be fairly divided among all who take part in production. This is an elemental fact that Green and others in labor apparently refuse to accept. They persist in policies which assume there is a fixed amount of pie and llie job of union leaders is to see (hat labor gets a bigger slice. The real task before labor and everyone else involved in the economy is to increase the size of the pie. BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS . Playing'Follow the Leader'? Earnest Republicans hoping for bel- ter luck at the polls this fall must be rather dismayed at the spectacle of Victor Johnston, a GOP campaign committee official, traipsing around in a plane after Mr. Truman's special train. The idea is supposed to be that Johnston, beinjr on the spot a the President's stops in the West, is able to judge more accurately the popular response to Mr. Truman and to draft fitting replies quickly—to his speeches. There are millions of independent voters in the United States and, for all anyone knows, a large share of them may be eager for a promising alternative to the long entrenched Democratic regime. Hut they arc hardly likely to be impressed by Johnston's "follow the leader" tactics. To them, as to many tried «nd true KepuMicHtis, the Johnston jun- tfet must seem like out more admission that the GOP is pursuing a course of negative criticism rather than "'a policy that is constructive, dynamic and imaginative. The best news many Republicans and independents could htar would be that Mr. Johnston had veered off from the President's trail and was making some positive statements on his own. FRIDAY, MAY 19, 1959 Views of Others Panic Is a Luxury People In war-ravaged and bomb-torn sections of Europe and the Far East, finds a New York psychiatrist, suffer far less from neuroses than do people in the United States. That is n physician's conclusion couched in technical terms. In less professional language, what he is saying is i n l s: Those who have actually come up against war itself, Its destructions and hardships, are less harried by confusion, fear, and conflicts within themselves than those who only think about its horrors from a distance. The psychiatrist's own explanation is that Ihcse people In the war zones faced their ordeals together, that danger and suffering Rre more easily endured In a group than alone. That no doubt. Is true. But there are other conclusions to be drawn-conclusions which Americans might ponder. To these people in the path of war, their adversaries have been plain. They lay unmistakably outside themselves and they made all-absorbing and Insistent demands upon them, when one is lacing a rain of bombs, the need-for shelter against tonight's biting cold, the' question of food for tomorrow and tomorrow there Is little chance to breed over the sin., of one's neighbors or over whether one is keeping up with the Joneses. Then thought turns outward to ward against « common foe, t o help a fellow man. It Is when the cushion of security- this side of survival seems (hick and soft thatlaH- individual or a nation finds * margin of lime Knid energy In which to turn thought Inward and worry about itself. It is time the American people ceased their orgy of introspection and turned their thlnHng healthily outward once more. There is a common enemy, and it should be plain. It is tyranny the brutal philosophy that only force counts There are fellow men to be strcngthcncd-men much nearer geographically and otherwise to the path of this merciless glacier than is the average comfortable American. Against this background, and within the framework of democracy, differences between nepubli- ca naiid Democrat, liberal and conservative, capital and labor union loom up small indeed! —CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR How Austrians View Communism Austrians have told the Russians what they think of them, in no uncertain terms.

Ran Into Something Peter Edson's Washington Column — Marines May Have the Situation Well in Hand mth Helicopters NORFOLK NAVAL BASE (NEA) —While Army, Navy and Air Force have been conducting their big Tortrex" and "Swarmer" maneuvers to test airborne paratroop Invasion landings, the Marine (Corps has been experimenting with' heli- coter tri-phibious landings at the Quantco, Va.. Marne bas. Ths d- vlopmcnt was disclosed here by Marine Brig-Gen. Gerald c. Thomas, president of the Marine corps Equipment Board, to a civilian naval orientation course. Central Thoman was chief of staff the Marine Corps operation against Guada- canal. r ,., Under the joint chiefs of staff agreement at Key West, paratroop operations were reserved for the Air Force. The Marine Corps had some EDSON partroop forces during World War II, but had not found their use of great advantage. So the Marine Corps was Just as happy to turn its attention to developing new techniques for Invasion landings. Possible use o[ an atomic bomb agaimt amphibious landing force had made World War II techniques obsolete anyway. Great concentrations of landing forces, such as were employed throughout the Pacific war or even at Normandy, would be out of the question if the defending force had atomic weapons. IE World-War-II-type landings were made at all. two things would be necessary. First was a greatly increased speed of landing craft. Second was a grpater dispersal o! landing craft, so that the invading force could not be knocked out by one bomb. Working on Three Possibilities Solving these problems seemed so difficult that attention was given I to finding ways to by-pass this type of operation altogether. Three possibilities are being considered. One Is to use submarine transports. While possibly effective In deep water, they would be of limited use in securing ordinary beachheads. A second possibility is to use assault troop carrier, seaplanes or amphibious aircraft. The operation would Involve flying to the objective, landing on the water, taxiing to the beach and unloading troops and equipment Tor the Invasion. The Navy already has transport submarines and troon-carrying nlr- craft with which these two techniques are being studied. An item in the new military funds bit! now before Congress will, if passed, pro-, vide an appropriation for additional assault seaplanes for the further development of airborne invasions.

D , emocratic f""e had come for a change from Party. Is anollicr landmark in that ancient country's modernisation which began under the late Kemnl Sunday School Lesson By William E. Oilroy, D. D. The Hebrew prophet, Mical), lived in the eighth century before Christ, taut from that far-off age, In the book of prophecy that bears his name, has come a simple, exact definition of religion that is among the most often quoted of Biblical precepts. It is a definition of duty. As . such it demands for the full definition ol religion the gospel concerning God, who is the source of life and love, and the true object of man's worship. The gospel defines the Godward aspect of religion, but the man- ward aspect, is set forth in these simple, adequate words: "He (God) hath shewed thee, o man, what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?" (Micah 6:8.) Beside it might be put the similarly simple and exact definition by James, the brother of Our Lord: "Pure religion and undc- filed before God and the Father is tilts, to visit the fatherless and widows In their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world." (James 1:27.) James defines religion in particular and -specific acts, but acts that are symbolic of the entire Christian spirit and attitude. The definition In Micah is In more all-inclusive terms. general and In a similar way, same spirit, Amos What is to be noted about these simple definitions of religion is that they stand In contrast to. and in protest, against, formal profession and elaborate practice of ritual that lacks the soul of sincerity, and the reality of goodness In words and deeds. and in the had spoken even more strongly, as he observed the outward observance of religious forms and rites, that lacked the true response of the soul to the God of righteousness and truth. Amos represents the Lord as saying "1 hate, T despise your feast days, and I will not smell your solemn assemblies," and demanding that judgment nm down as waters, and righteousness as a mighty stream. (Amos 5:21-2-1.) I am not ,-, pessimist concerning the church and religious life today. I know to well the many devout souls, the sincerity of whose daily lives matches the sincerity of their devotion. I would that many who do not know the meaning or practice of worship might, be brought the one-party system, and the voters provided that change. Made Dictator It was in 1021, nt a critical moment in (lie Greco-Turkish War. that the Turkish National Assembly gavj^ Kemal — famous soldier and com- ' mander In chief of (he country's forces—the |>owers of dictator. He already had made a great name for himself/ having among other things been responsible for the failure of the Allied forces to capture the Gallipot! Peninsula In the first World War. Having beaten the Greeks and regained Thrace, he turned his nt- teiUlon to consolidating his political position.

"All 1 needed was to find that miserable queen of hearU on my right Instead of on mv left." Joe was half right, ff the queen of hearts had been favorably located he would have made hts contract. However, n-e shall come back to this point later on. West opened the deuce of hearts, and East won with the ace. East returned the ten of hearts, and Joe, playing the South hand, hopefully fintsscd the jack. If this finesse had .succeeded, Joe would have made his game contract. Unfortunately for Joe, West was able to win the second trick with the queen of hearts. He returned a heart, clearing the suit. Now, of course, South was a into the house of God observance of religion. Nevertheless, I think I see many quarters a present emphasis upon the outward forms of worship that lacks emphasis upon inward grace and truth. I think we need to consider well the plain words of Micah and Amos. 75 Years Ago Today Miss Jeanne* Harrison, daughter of Judge and Mrs. Zal B.

And the moment South led diamonds East was bound to take Ihc ace and cash the rest ot the hearts. The contract was therefore set on trtck. As .usual. Joe had created Ins own hard luck for himself' if he had played l-hc hand properly ho would have made htx contract. Do you see hon? The opening lead ol the deuce of hearts indicated lhat West had led either from a four-card holding In hearts, or from three to the queen. Prom any other combination West would probably b.ivc led his (op heart, rather than his lowest heart. It was. of course, just barely possible that West had led a singleton deuce of hearts, it was unlikely, however, that East had so many hearts. Moreover, west might not have led a singleton deuce of hearts but might have tried .some different suit In view of Soulh's de'ermiqed bidding In no- trump. Assuming that West held cither four hearts or three to the queen. South should have played the king of hearts at n the second trick. There \vnuld be nothing to fear if each opponenLs had four hearli. if west had three lo ihe queen, this play would block the suit. At the third trick, South would the Theta Tau Epislon sorority of Mississippi Synodical College, Holly lead R, diamond, knocking out East's ace. East would now have to lead a heart to his partner's nueen. This would clear the heart suit, but there would be no way for East to regain the lead in time to cash his good hearts. West might make a good try by leading a club through dummy, but declarer would hop right up with the ace and cash his tricks: four diamonds, one one heart, and three spades. cTnb. . ••-..,v.o.. i niv-i n -H5 [iiinscu gokig Into class rooms In the country"districts and helping not only children but grown folks in their struggle to learn this strange new form of ivritiiig.
