Solons Should Give PSC All the Strength It Needs Not long ago, we commented in these columns that the people oC Ihe state of Arkansas pretty well dependent on tne Public Service Commission to sniarantee thnt fair utility rales will prevail in the state. Now come news releases and inter- pretives from Little Rock indicating that the Public Service Commission can be pretty powerless at times. Other such intelligence in the past would indicate that the Public Service Commission could stand some diagnosis and treatment—both by the next session of the legislature. Those who have observed the Commission have said it is so understaffed that it's practically helpless in reviewing cases. This was first brought to light when Governor McMath called for an audit of utility expenses. Pure politics, it was said then, because (he PSC doesn't even have enough manpower to attend to tha routine business, much less launch an investigation. Now, it appears that the Commission is so weak that anyone who can hire a battery of sharp lawyers can overpower the anemic Commission staff. If this is true, certainly the Legislature should turn its attention to this very important segment of the administration and strengthen it if need be. It would be money well spent. panesee imagine that relations with these peoples will be all peaches and cream. Elements of the internal groups which bulked heavily in the militaristic government of a former riay are not wholly eradicated, [t would he strange indeed if all vestige of the old dream of Asiatic dominion had been wiped out. But the record to this point is extremely favorable. Undor General MacArthur's brilliant stewardship, and later under General Kidgway, an able successor, the Japanese have shown a tremendous will to earn their way back into the community of respected nations. They have made earnest effort to embrace democracy, to modify many features of their age-old society in conformity with most modern concepts of government. In agreeing to a mutual defense pact with (he United States and others, the Japanese have chosen to range themselves on the side of the free world in the bitter nnd unending struggle against world communism. Now their moment of freedom and independence has come. The day of the Allied occupation is over. American troops will still be stationed on the Japanese island. But they will be there as friends and protectors, not as conquerors. Japan's postwar coming of age is a milestone to be hailed around Ihe globe. And it is striking notice to the Soviet Union that not all relations with our former enemies can be hamstrung and corrupted by the devices of communism.

Much credit was given to them by Texas and Virginia hiphway engineers who testified to our Highway Audit Commission. —Arkansas Democrat Japan's Conduct Indicates She Is Worthy of Freedom In a world where peace treaties have receded almost into the realm of dreams, Japan's rebirth as a sovereign nation stands out in sharp relief. Almost seven yp.ivs have passed since the Japanese bowed in surrender before superior Allied forces in the Pacific and gave up their fanatical program of Asiati cconquest. Today they are welcomed into the family of free nations as a friend and equal. It would be folly to pretend that all of .Japan's enemies have forgotten her depredations in World War II. In Australia and the Philippines, to mention only two places, the memory of those days burns deeply. Japan can only erase that feeling by proving through action in the years ahead that the trust reposed in her by the new treaty is well merited. The major powers plainly believe it is, else they would not have made themselves party to a pact which is unique in its liberality. No sober-minded observer of the Ja- SO THEY SAY Rip Von Winkles Never Sleep More Than 20 Years! Peter fdson's Washington Column — Sen. Wiley 'Pulls a Vandenberg* By Supporting Foreign Policy WASHINGTON — (NEA1 — Biggest news on the U. S, foreign policy front is that Republican Sen. Alexander Wiley of Wisconsin is about, to pull a Vandenburg. The Wisconsin senator, in a short speech prepared for delivery on the floor of the Senate, declares that tho U.

When his audience received this In stony silence. Senator Wiley departed from his text and asked, "What's the matter with you Democrats out there? Why don't you applaud that?" All he got was a mild laugh. • • » THOUGH THE Wiley speech was] received with some doubts, disbelief \ and lack of enthusiasm by his immediate audience in Washington, it met with violent reactions in the middle west and on Capitol Hill. The Milwaukee Journal and the Madison, Wis., CapHal-Timts praised Senator Wiley in glowing editorials for speaking with the voice of a statesman. Up to this Urns these papers had been only lukewarm to Wiley. There had been general doubt expressed as to the senator's ability lo carry off the assignment as Foreign Relations chairman. The Chicago Tribune, on the other hand, criticized the Wiley speech TO the editors as a "me-too" declaration. U accused Senator Wiley of playing footsie with Secretary Aches nn. In the words of Sen. Harry P. Cain of Washington, the Tribune editorial implied, "that the State Department in general nnd the Secretary of State in particular set out to seduce my rolleapue, the senior senator from Wisconsin ... and that the seduction was successful," be to I With Senators Karl E.

Senator Cain tried to make a case that Senator Wiley had been misquoted by the press. Then they cited earlier speches by Senator Wiley to show that he had in the past been * consistent and violent critic of u. S. oreign policy under Democratic ontrol.
