Easier to Pay for Cold War Than Hot War Can we afford the cold war? A lot of people say we can't, that tht Marshall Plan, heavy defense out- ky«, help to the Far East and Point Four •id to backward lands are just too much to bear. Paul Hoffman, able head of the Economic Co-operation Administration, has a different answer. He says we can't afford NOT to fight the cold war. In « recent Washington speech pack«d with solid sense, Hoffman laid tlie lf«Ui out plainly. As they emerge from hit comment, the choices before 113 are these: to knuckle under to Russia, to reach a fair agreement with her, to continue the cold war or to undertake a ihootinjr war. Of the first prospect, Hoffman prob- «bly voices the general U. S. view when h» says Russia has a "perfectly stink- Ing" system that men won't live under if they can somehow escape it. And Hoffman seems to share the widespread official pessimism in America over chances of a sound agreement with the Kremlin. He stresses that Rus- «ia decided to fight the cold war even while World War Tl slit! raged and she wa s our comrade in arms. He sees Soviet leaders thoroughly committed to the idea that communism and capitalism must battle until one or the other goes down. Hoffman is at his most forceful in pointing out that continuing the cold war is preferable by t'ar to the one remaining alternative—shooting war. "Shooting war is the ultimate stupidity," he declares. "This time we have got to win a victory with these new cold wai techniques. And we will win it." The cold war is expensive, yes. The four-year cost of the Marshall Plan will hit close to $15.000 000.000. Defense outlays for ourselves and our allies are miming around ? to $15000,000,000 a yeai -Add to this the mounting aid to other lands. But what of a hot war's cost? Hoffman quotes former Secretary of the Army Gordon Gray as estimating the final cost of World War II—when the last pension is paid—at '.me trillion, three hundred billion dollars Another war almost inevitably would cost much more. Hoffman believes we could extend tile Marshall Plan to Asia and perhaps Africa for a cost that would come to less in a year than a hot war would cost In a week. "What are people talking about when they S ny we can't afford this §15,000,000,000, lliis §20000,000.000?" he asks. The economy-minded will be hard put to make sensible reply For the fact la that, grim as it ,s. the cold war is the most cheerful prospect we can contemplate until Russian communism •omehow crumble! under th« wtlght of a determined free world. SATURDAY, JUNE 8, 19S» Views of Others Nations Crack On Tax Policy Notably nonparlisan, the Hrookings Institution has developed Another of its Interesting studies on public questions, tills gne attacking the problem that affects every citizen and with the people the.government Itself. Not, loo much research Is required to clcniunstrate that inability to cnrry a crushing lax burden has been an Important factor In the collapse o( every great nation that the world has known. Economist Lev/is Kimmcl would have the United States pull up and revise Its lax policies before It Is too late. Government begins as a service to the people, all too soon gets around to the officeholder .Jdea tha.t people are the servants of the governed. That the best-governed people is (hat which is governed least Is a homely and truthful axiom for the simple reason that 10 government Is good if Its cost Is too hlsh and * burden on those who support it. As Mr. Kiinniel points out, the desirable goal is taxalion not to exceed 10 per cent of income. The figure Is significant, as it goes back to antiquity when the church was the state and the tithe ,tlie communicant's Inx assessment In a sense. The church could not nave been the state very long had it adopted a sliding scale that took as high as 80 ,jer cent of some incomes. It is open to question whelhei this republic can survive any protracted length of time without revising Its tax exaction downward. Today the Individual income tax has a ridiculous base in starting on the first penny earned above $500 by the unmarried Individual. Nothing can disguise the fact thnt present Imposts begin at an early bracket to become oppressive expropriation of the returns of effort. Whether the present Congress agrees or not with the mild Brooklngs recommendations which aim at progressive lowering of the tax burden, It would do well to consider how far the country has gone toward creating a system of levies that threaten the survival of both Initiative and enterprise. Comparatively speaking, we are already beyond the danger point that has figured in the decline of both dynasties and nations. The greatest ally world Communism can have in this country is an unbearable burden of taxes. So far the successive administrations of Messr» Roosevelt and Truman have known nothing except to tax and then tax again. —IJALL/iS MORNING NEWS Far From Old Ideals. Few Americans seem to realize how greatly tlie thinking of this nation ha,s changed; how far people have wandered from old Ideals after strange poJltical gwij Turn back to earlier national leaders—not JiLst to the conservatives, but to the liberals, the forward-looking statesmen of years gone; read what they said, and were applauded for, and elected to office. Compare It *itii the talk of our leaders today—and .you'll get i Jolt. President "Tcddy^ROosevelt was n definite liberal; an upsclter of traditions; a chief executive who engineered fr.r-reaching reforms. And here Is a piece of his political creed: "The only permanently beneficial my In which to help anyone Is to help him to help himself; ir either private clmrlty or governmental action, or any form of social expression, destroys the individual's power of self-help the gravest possible wrong Is really done to the Individual." But today millions are glmmylng Washington for handouts of every description. And President Truman says It Is a proper function ot the government to hoist the people up to easier living and economic security. How did this country become the envy of the world, enjoying the holiest living standards ever dreamed? How rtlrt It bmld the produrtlvc power, !hc strength and wealth to turn the scales to victory in two world wars and then pour out billions to put allies and foes tack on their feet? Well' it wasn't done with vast public spending, ravenous tuxes and debt subsidies and Krants coddling inwi for this group and that one, and a vast, meddling bureaucracy. H wa* done by a God-fearing citizenry who stood on their own feet, cherishing their" liberties, working for their security not trying to vcte it out of taxes and debt. —ARKANSAS DEMOCRAT So They Say — — In dealing with the Communists, you cannot assume the other man has the same moral standards that you have.~l,owls Strauss, retired member of the Atomic Energy Commission. « + If we find evil in high places we mils , . fcm , t It out.-Sen.

(NEA) — Exclusively Yours: It isn't supposed to be known, but Jimmy Durante talked his MGM bosses right out of their decision to put him in Red Skcl- ton's new comedy, "Watch the Birdie." "My part was nuttin'," Jimmy says. "Nuttin'." WASHINGTON (NEA)— Wash- ngton is getting awfully palsy ivHh Peron these days, A group of Ar- [entine journalists is visiting the }. S, The Argentine chief of staff, jt.-Gen. Victor Jamie Majo, Is oiiring the country af'u. S. government expense. And then there was this matter of a S125.000.000 redit, granted to a combination )f Argentine wnkj by the V. S. Export-Import Bank with some gentle urging by the u. S. State Department. Effect o f this loan has not been good In other parts of Latin- America. It has _ created the im- EDSON pression that the way to get a loan from Uncle Sam is to go bankrupt. It may cause political upsets Ui Ecuador and Uruguay. An the chil- eanos, who have been the real solid co-operators with the United states are openly expesslng their dlsgusto. About this U. S.-Argentine big deal, however, there Is considerable misunderstanding. President Peron once said, several years ago, that he would cut off his right arm before he asked for a loan. He still has his right arm. And he has the promise of a loan. He got around this difficulty, not by "asking for a loan," but by having a group of banks "accept a credit." They are twins, but the latter seems to he tonler. The group of Argentine banks accepting the credit is pretty much of a front. All banks In the Argen- tine are just the same as nationalized and under tight government control. The $125,000.000 U.S. credit they are accepting Is guaranteed by the Central Bank of Argentina. Bit U.S. Hank* Are on the Hook How much of a guarantee this Is may be questionable. It recalls the story of one American official who was asked to cable to his headquarters • copy of the Bank of Argentina's statement. His reply was that it wasnt worth the cable tolls. ' ' But the bfggent catch In the Argentine loan—or crediWts that not a cent of the money Is going to leave the United States. This point has not been clearly understood.

They see eac'i suit as an Individual problem, but' they have no picture of the hand i as a whole. This type of blindness j is Illustrated In today's hand. If West had been lucky enough to hit upon a heart opening, declarer's hash would have been settled Immediately. He would have lost a trick in each suit. As it happened, West opened the eight of clubs. Dummy played low. East finessed the ten, and South von with the king of clubs. At this point, South saw that his best chance to make the maximum number of tricks in spades was to take a finesse. Likewise, his best chance to get the maximum number of tricks In hearts was to take a finesse In that suit. South did not stop to think about the hand as a lere is a malicious slander here that a person who has a complete hysterectomy must be diseased. Is this true? T.J.R.

Tie proceeded to take a finesse in hearts wltli the Intention of finessing the spades on the way back. The heart finesse lost to East's king. East returned a trump and South finessed again, losing to West's queen. The defender?, then had no trouble cashing their two aces. The contract was therefore defeated. ^ If South nnd considered the hand as a whole, he would have realized that the correct line of play was to Inkc no finesses at all. The contract would then be virtually assured. South should lay down the ace and king of spades at the second and third tricks. He then leads a diamond with the Intention of continuing the suit until the ace is forced out. This plan sets up n diamond in dummy on which South can discard his losing heart, Declarer therefore loses only one diamond, on* club and out trump. nd now as If the "mollth U.N. Security Council.

The issue to be decided now will be what group of politicians represents her lii the U.N. On this ground the U.

No veto could be cast. But there are plenty of people. —Including several senators—who me concerned by the moral Issues involved on thnt sort of vote. Veto Can Be Cast When the U.

But State Department men Insist that the U. S., In Its home affairs, has always stood by what the majority decided to do. Hence, in th« world arena, the U.
