Pool ing West Europe's Power May Solve Defense Problem The 12 Atlantic Pact countries stand •': »t • crossroads. At their London conference the big question confronting •aoh nation was: "How can we get an . *l«quat» defense without going bnnk- ; rapt?" \ Western European leaders are con* yinced that drastically lowered living •landardi for their peoples would be the ^writable outcome if each country goes on planning for its own balanced force »f army, air force and naval units. Some believe that even as allies they lack the economic stienjjth needed for the sort of defensive effort their military men considei basic to security. The European chiefs no longer see uiy point in discussing whether security or economic recovery should have priority. They think the two somehow must k« achieved together. But how? The plan 'now turning over in some loaders' minds is to create a giant pool of military and economic resources along all the pact countries. They think the defense job might be accomplished if each country were assignee! just a part of it, with all the parts fitted into an overall pattern. Thus France might be asked to supply land forces, the Low Countries some specialized combat units, Britain the tactical air arm, the United States the strategic air force and possibly the main naval strength There might be a similar division of effort in the output of munitions and other equipment. This is a revolutionary idea for Europe to study seriously It involves a loss of individual national sovereignty, heretofore cluiiy to sc, jealously by all. More than that, it wnild demand a remarkable display ot mutual confidence among the pact nations Nevertheless, that s the line European officials have been thinking along. It's a measure of the gravity of their dilemma. The full pooling of Atlantic power was not accomplished at London. But a start was niatli: in the setting up ot a permanent committee to co-ordinate military and ccoiijrnic matters among the pact countries. Kuroptans know the situation is urgent. They :an't lean indefinitely on the United States as their sole support in this predicament. holding tax against corporate dividends. The idea would be lo catch individual • income tax evaders. Government experts estimate that about $1,000,000,000 in taxes due on dividends now goes un- collectcd. The withholding system would provide for collection of the tax from the corporations, before dividends are paid out. No one wants to sanction tax evasion. 13ut a withholding lax on dividend payments will tend to solidify a basic flaw in the U. S. tax structure—. the double taxation of corporate earnings. These returns are taxed as corporate income and then again as individual earnings. The Committee for Economic Development, acknowledged as one of the most enlightened business planning groups, has long campaigned for an end to this practice. In contrast, the defense of double taxation seems feeble. Why take action which may perpetuate this apparent inequity? Views of Others Portents in the Sky; What Do They Mean? Sim. Charles Tobuy of New Hampshire became pretty much disturbed over the co-operative housing bill a few weeks ago and blurter out: "A liberal ^an remain a Jlbcral only so long/' Though a Republican and from a rock-ribbed New England, state, he had voted for many a New Deal and Pair Deal measure but he thought he had come to a parting ->I the ways and a return to strict orthodoxy In his political faith. He said lie saw "portents In the sky." One of the portents, It may have been, wai the Imminence of defeat for Sen. Claude Pepper In the Florida Demociatic primary. Another perhaps was the prodigious effort under way in North Carolina to defeat Sen. Prank Graham for the Democratic nomination. But If those manifestations were portents to be noted and given weight, what has happened since within the Senator's own party? First there came the Pennsylvania Republican primary in which the Issue within the party was liberalism versus the "stand pat" policy. The liberal James Duff won. Then there came the Oregon primary with Ben. Wayne Morse a two-to-one victor over the arch-conservative Dave Hoover, and Morse'« post-election statement: "It shows the people feel it Is time the Repuollcan Party should adopt x program of constitutional liberalism. I will continue to vote Independently on Issues as I sc» them." ' . . .

Peter fc/son's Washington Column — Party Labels Grow Increasingly Meaningless as the Issues Unfold WASHINGTON — ENEA>— There Is one major Issue In the 1950 political campaign which Is now hard pressing upon the voters. There la no precise name for it. The old labels don't quite fit. 1 It is more a state of mind, & sixth sense or a political "reel" which voters are being asked to decide upon and express.

The problem is two-fold: first find what particular substance is causing the irritation, and second remove It from the atmosphere. Both of these steps may .be tlif- flcult especially thc second. Unless ihe second Is successfully accomplished, however, or unless the patient can be given Injections of the offending substance anil can build up a resistance i» It, the catarrh »r vasomotor rhinitis will almost certainly continue.

Europe Is getting the weapon* on schedule, The U.S. Labor Department telU the aiory in the March Issue of "Labor Abroad/' Trouble in Franca Mast of the trouble occurred hi France and Italy. In both countries Communist-led unions started with a "peace offensive," telling workers that the way to insure peace was to refuse to handle American arms, , When that argument failed In France, the Communists began a f lood of s hor t s trikes for h i#he r :>ay, conspicuously among workers icedcd to shore up F'rDnch defenses. In both countries enough unton people have grown so tired ol ths sly sabotage of Communist leaders that new anti-Communist unions have been formed. Unions Want Wages These new unions stilt want bel- ter wages, but they also take Into account the security of their nations. In Prance the battle is between the Communist-led CGT (General Confederation of Labor) and two free unions, FO (Workers Force) and CFTC (French Confederation of Christian Workers.) In Italy the battle lies betweW the Communist-led COIL (Italian General Confederation of Labor) and the anti-Communlat LCQIL (Free Italian General Confederation of Workers) and Fit, (Italian Federation of Labor).

Tad Sees Himself'a.i Progressive Senator Taft says he has never met any of the "greedy, selfish reactionaries" that President Truman is always talking about. Taft really considers himself a progressive. He takes credit for having sponsored the public housing and hospital construction programs passed by the 8lst Congress, Many of the things Taft says he stands -for, the Democratic liberals can also say they support.
