Water Agency Nomination Plan Good But Premature Failure of Blytheville's civic clubs to come through with recommendations for men to serve on the city's proposed water commission represents H paradox of sorts. In the first place, it was a rare opportunity which was offered to gain citizen participation in the city's government. This, we think, is good. Tha mayor and council undoubtedly acted in good faith. They could have quietly lined up "deals" of almost any sort, but they wanted to give the people a chance to choose capable and honest men to run the water company, if and when the city gets same. . And that is the joker in the deck as far as the civic clubs were concerned. Many of their members felt that recommendations for commissioners would constitute endoraement of the plan to buy the water company. Kor this reason, the plan may have been presented to the clubs prematurely. Whatever attitude the civic clubs take on this matter is, of course, only the business of the membership of the clubs. But the manner in which it has been handled intimates a dangerous idea held by too many Americans: honest folk are too good to get messed up in anything like politics. If politics is something less than what we would like for it to be, we should get in the middle of it and dean it up. You wouldn't ignore your business and expect it to run properly. W ouM you. if your business were failing, complain but refuse lo soil your hands with active manr.sremcnt of the firm? Certainly not. Then don't pass up an opportunity to make your town's government a belter and stronger one. As for the plan for nominating water commissioners, we would suggest that the city administration re-submit the plan after (lie city is definitely committed to consummate purchase of the water company. WKWBSDAY, MAT T, GO Steel Strike Is Dismal By-Product of Court Ruling the certainty that the Supreme Court will S1)r ,n be speaking on the constitutionality of President Truman's seizure of the steel industry, it J 5 premature to discuss in all its aspects Federal Judge Pine's ruling that the move was illegal. Rut Pine sin-ply deserves commendation for having (lie courage to assert, his convictions at a moment when lie was under the greatest of pressures. The «et »km« 1* healthy as t re-statement of the important «nd independent role the judiciary has in marking out WNI bounds of fe<l«ral power. Pine concluded quite simply that there was nothing: explicit in the Constitution giving the President power to seize the steel mills, nor was there any language which by a reasonable interpretation could be stretched to cover such action. In other words, he spoke in flat contradiction to the government's lawyers who contended in effect that the President's authority in time of emergency is practically without legal limit. Bearing in mind the risks of limiting executive authority in time of general war or perhaps even in a state of near-war, the Supreme Court may not support Pine. But whether it. does or does not, the judge's decision will stand out bravely against the all-loo-glib notion that the President's powers are what he thinks they should be. fine staled a fundamental of American life when he declared that the chief executive is accountable to law no less than any other American. One of the dismal by-products of the decision was Hie action of Philip Alur- ray, CIO president, in promptly ordering a steel strike. He must have foreseen that an appeals court might well stay the effect of Pine's ruling until the Supreme Court had reviewed the case. Yet he plunged the nation into & crippling shutdown with hardly a moment's delay. It is not intended to imply that Murray has no fair issue in the steel dispute. Indeed, the question of where the truth and the wise course lay in this matter is exceedingly difficult lo determine. Neither the government nor the parties to the controversy have dealt with this problem in a proper manner. There has been too much pre-jtidging, too little real digging for facts, too little genuinely willing bargaining effort. Certain it is that a wage contract in steel has effects far beyond that single industry and hence is a matter of general concern. But it is no less sure that the whole progress of collective, bargaining procedures will be utterly wiped out unless both parties to such a'dispute now and henceforth can sit down around a table and succeed in finding a solution. And they should do this regardless of what the Supreme Court says about the President's power to seize or- not to seize. Views of Others Father, It Now Seems To Be Your Move Well. It was bound to come sooner or later. WE had been expecting It for the last few years. Dr. O, Spurseon English, professor of psychology at Temple University, Philadelphia, thinks something f-hould be done Immediately to restore Dad to his chair at the head of the Lable.

Maximum occupancy has been about 30D men so far. So the government Is having to pay 58.25 a M-n/>k for some 3600 empty rooms. This Is on the Aiken side of the narrow- access roads which are traj- fie bottlenecks. The location Is on river bottom land, protected by levees.

Then he would discard low clubs on the king and queen of hearU. When this hand was played, nearly 20 years ago. ihe East, cards were held by Lee Hazen. Today Hazen is one of the best, bridge players in the country, but at that t.ime he had been playing the game for only a few months. Nevertheless it wasn't difficult for him to see that declarer was trying to give up a dummy trick in trying to give up a trump trick in order to reach dummy. So East refused to win the trick. Declarer was still far from beaten. He laid down the ace of clubs and followed with the king of clubs. If Kazan raffed, the defense would be washed up. Declarer would win any return, capture the jack of trumps, and enter dummy with the nine of trumps. Beginner though he was at the time, Ha?en could see declarer's plan. South • obviously had only black cards left in his hand and was trying desperately to reach dummy. So Hazen refused to ruff the king of clubs. And now declarer was washed up. There was just n o t h Ing he could do with his two low clubs, If he tried to ruff them in dummy, East would over-rufl. If he drew trumps, West, would eventually win two ciub tricks. South went wrong because he. forgot that his opponents would surely block him if he made his plans crystal clear. The right plan for the hand is to niff the first diamond and immediately'lead the see and king of clubs. If both opivments follow, South can then draw trumps and give up one club at most. If an opponent ufls the first or second club. South nas a sure entry to dummy by means ot the nine of spades. Would East refuse to ruff the econti club if the hand were >laycd this way? He'd have to be mind reader to reject the trick, o South would almost surely make slam. Margaret Sullivan's reading "Miss Brown.
