'Regionalizing' Schools Solves States' Problems The 11 westernmost states have followed the lead of the South and agreed to pool educational facilities regionally . to raise the level of training in specialized fields like medicine, law and engineering. This idea has gained headway both . in the South and West because no single v state in these regions has enough money : to support a complete set of first-rank institutions covering such studies. Were any state in the two areas to try establishing schools in all fields, the result almost certainly would be disappointing to state lenders eager to maintain high standards. A far higher caliber of training is expected to come from the regional plans. Under this set-up each state will seek to make itself the educational specialist in a. limited number of fields. Thus California might concentrate on medical and law schools, Utah on a mining school, Colorado on engineering. Each state will send its students beyond its borders for training in specialties not taught at home. In turn it will accept students from neighboring states who wish to study it s own specialties. This plan not only promises to assure higher educational standards; it also will eliminate much wasteful duplication of facilities. The sparsely settled mountain states particularly c;m ill afford to spread their slender financial resources over several specialized institutions. Although the less wealthy regions are showing the way in co-operative efforts like tins educational plan, the richer sections of the country are not unaware of the advantages in such arrangements. For example, progress has been made toward a big regional library in the Middle West to house books for several big universities. The library would serve as a central depository for material not in too heavy demand, which could be circulated as needed by students in various parts of the'region. The schools' own libraries would need to keep on hand only the books in greatest use. There is serious talk about setting up a regional library in the eastern area, to serve jointly the requirements of the New York public library and those at Harvard, Yale, Columbia and perhaps others. Furthermore, the western states already have started work on a similar scheme for correctional institutions and state hospitals. California, previously about to abandon its women's reformatory, mny now continue it as a prison for women offenders throughout the West. Plans are under way for a single western school for the deaf. Regional pooling of resources is an outgrowth of co-operation among the stales developed at governors' conferences in the past 10 years. The states have showed increasing concern over the fact that the initiative has passed to the federal government in most matters of greater than strictly stale interest. The region-wide approach to educational and other problems is plainly an effort by the slates to recapture some of that lost initiative and to restore a better balance among federal, state and local governments, Kiss Me Quick Sen. Elmer Thomas, Oklahoma Democrat, complains loudly that he was snubbed in Sweden. He is so upset about what he says was the poor hospitality displayed on his visit there that he plans to be difficult when talk of Marshal] Plan money for Sweden comes up next year. Earlier on his junket, Thomas was welcomed to Luxembourg by Mrs. Perle fiesta, our minister to tiie tiny duchy, with a big kiss planted on his brow. His Senate colleagues may have to find out whether this kind of treatment was what Thomas looked for and didn't get in Sweden. And they may have to decide whether such warmth'is a reasonable expectation in cool Scandinavia. Views' of Others Planning—and Execution A growing community cannot develop in a sensible pattern unless there is someone to anticipate its needs and to keep its citizens Informed about what they are. The truth of this principle Is being constantly illustrated by the dilliculty cities have in making i 9 t h century streets meet the demands of 2Cilh century traffic. This is only one of the many problems posed by the pr OCCSS of urban expansion. An organization which might perform valuable service in this field is now in its formative stage The Puiaski County Planning Association, dedicated to the proposition that foresight can solve the problems of a growing community, hopes to develop into a county-wide citizens' organization which can arouse public support for existing'plan- ning bodies. The present public attitude toward planning seems to be reflected in two states ol mind. There are those few who oppose spccilic projects because they conflict with their personal Interests. And there are those, perhaps the great majority of the public, whose attitude toward planning Is one of apathy.-if the new association can eliminate Indifference, it will fulfill a very useful purpose. Its large objective of furthering specilic planning projects, however, will be seriously hampered by our present form of city government The mayor-council municipal government is by nature unfitted to execute an overall city plan. Council members. who'Vate: elected by wards, conceive It their duty to look after ward interests. When political pressure is brought against the execution or some feature of the city plan which may hurt a citizen of Ward X, the councilman in question Is very likely to vote against the plan. Under an ideal set-up, the execution of the city plan would be completely divorced Iron, politics. The designation of projects and the appropriation of money for them, being matters or policy, would be passed on by the elected representatives or the people. But, once approved, their execution would be lelt to administrative experts who would not be subject to political pressure. Such a separation of policy-making and policy- execution Is possible under the council-manager form ol government, which no municipality In Pnlaski Comity has. fn order to lay the groundwork for the achievement of its goal, the Pulaskt County Planning Association may have to put consideration of city charters ahead of city plans. —ARKANSAS GAZEITE.

Most of them think that the feud s Just too high-level for servicemen of their lowly rank to get excited about. One result ol the economy :nuscd by nnilication docs bother hem, however. The free bus which iscd to be provided for the golfers o take them to the course from chool has ben stopped. To get to he links now, they've got to use r,hc ocal bus line and pay a fare. As one ccond-year man puts it: "First they take away the giant :arrier. Now they've taken away the ills to the golf course. I wonder vhat Ls coming next?" Who Is It Conlrolllns? Ever since the new federal rent control law was put on the books his year Tighe Woods, the rent control director, has avoided the TCSS very carefully, refusing to out- Ine top policy on decontrol. Mean- s'hile screams are going up all over he country that the new law should be called the "federal decontrol ." Woods has decontrolled 209 areas, leaving only 3Qa areas still protected, under the new law. High Trice of Influence A report just out shows that SG,293.622 was spent by registered lob- jylsts in their efforts to influence cgislation during the first half of of the 31st Congress. That's an average of 411,852 per member. Just One Big Family A bulfet dinner'held before the premiere ol the new movie "Battleground" attracted all the by brass in Washington. Secretary of Navy Francis Matthews and his wife were there. After getting their food they found places at an empty table. A lew momen's later Air Force Chief of Slalf General Vandenbcrg and his wife walked by looking for a place to cat. Spotting Secretary Matthews, the general slapped him on the back and said: "Well, Mr. Secretary, do you think there is enough unification, for my wife and I to Join you and Mrs. Matthews?" Matthews replied: "Of course, sit down. We've probably got more unification than anybody else." That'll Keep Him Quiet The mild-mannered and scholarly Dr. Earl J. McGrath, u. S. commissioner of education, was recently in a big hurry to get to Philadelphia to make a speech. It so happened that no planes were scheduled at that time. Hearing of his plight, however, a friend offered to gel, him on n special private flight of a two-engine transport due in leave in a few minutes. When he arrived at the plane the pilot asked the ocmmlMioncr if he was nervous about flying Dr. McGrath said it didn't bother him be- he was a pilot himself. Thinking this was a little bragging on the Budget Pinch Golf Course commissioners' part the pilot asked him if he would like to try his hand at, the controls. McGrath said yes he would. A little taken back, "the pilot asked him if he had a license for multi-engine planes. Dr. McGrath produced one. The pilot was lelt with no alternative but to lee the commissioner pilot the plane for the full Ilighl^which he did with great skill. looks al N. Y. Election Results One of the key political planners of the administration, Federal Security Administrator Oscar Ewing, is most enthusiastic about the re"- sults of the recent election. H( thniks it will convince the "doubters" on the Hill that the people really want. President Truman's Pair Deal. He says: "The boys on the Hill keep their ear to the ground, as they should. And I'm sure they heard plenty at the last election. They're interested in votes and now they know that the President's program is a vo^s-get- ter." He thinks federal aid to education is a dead chinch to get through the next session. .Vcw Congressional Alignment Tiie recent election makes no change in the party alignment in Congress from what it was at the uart of the session. In the Senate there will be 53 Democrats to 41 Republicans with two vacancies. In the House there will be 262 Democrats, 170 Republicans, one American-Labor, one Democratic-Liberal, and one vacancy. the Germans are easement of their H nu ,. b ve , l "c an example or ul.->» some co,,,,,, cllla(ors ' rcf ° r »'•»' new morality of the Wrslern "" Ihe ««-n .-.„>, knees militarily , >c fo but world.
