Writing in Collier's magazine, he has now made his first important policy statement since quilting that post. He urges that the government, monopoly on atomic energy be ended and that industry be given full opportunity lo show what it can do'in this vilal field. To critics who have consistently opposed Lilienthal for alleged "leftist" tendencies, there must be something of a shock in his glowing words for the possibilities in atomic energy development by private enterprise. Had there been government monopoly in chemistry or electronics, he says, we would not today have Ihe great industries that have'grown up in those fields through the resourceful application of thousands of now ideas by countless individuals. New ideas are what atomic energy needs today, adds Lilienlhal, if it is to realize its promise as the nation's real industrial frontier in the next 50 years. "The time for the first industrial appli- calions of atomic knowledge is overdue." Properly developed, he sees atomic energy as affording Ihe setting for "another miracle of industrial growth" in Ihe Unilcd Stales. That means new jobs, new businesses, new ways of living still undreamed of. But lo Lilienthal these wonderful goals are impossible lo reach so long as government keeps its tight grip on atomic knowledge. Federal monopoly just can't be fitted into the American industrial system; it belongs only in countries like Soviet Russia. His strongest, most alarming declaration: "It is of the deepest importance to us all that we face up to this inescapable fact—atomic knowledge in the hands of government will be intensively and successfully developed only for military purposes." He say s the A EC has tried earnestly and failed to stimulate the necessary growth of new ideas within its own narrow circle of cooperating companies. It's time to break that circle and lei everyone in. Lilienthal believes fundamental knowledge on atomic energy can be spread liberally without endangering our national security. His arguments are persuasive. All of us know our industrial greatness is keyed lo Ihe free play of inventive, imaginative minds. No one can tell where a great idea will come from. But il's common sense lhat the more minds we have at work in a field the more likely , nre wo lo make genuine progress. Lilienthal's proposals meril Ihe early aUenlion of otir highest leaders. Back to 'Splendid Isolation'? Britain's friends in America can only fee] rather embarrassed at the shortsighted, partisan, isolationist policy statement of the British Labor Party on the issue of European unity. Prime Minister Clement Attlee since lias made some effort in the House of Commons to convince Europe and us that his government docs not go along Die whole way with this party view. Still, he appears only to have muddled matters worse. To Americans it sounds plain enough: Britain is selfishly bent on insulating her socialist experiments at whatever cost in vitally needed co-operation with the remainder of free Europe. At a moment in history when her traditional leadership would unml most heavily, she seems intent on turning inward and letting Europe go hang. Kree peoples of the Atlantic area can only hope this manifesto does not reflect the sentiment of all Britons. Credit to Senator McCarthy Although four G.O.P, Senators were paired against, the ua.smg-jiomt bill and one announced himself opposed, only Lxvo members of the senatorial minority voted against this monopolistic measure on rclt call. They were the two Wisconsin Republicans— Alexander Wiley Riui Joseph rt. McCarthy, This page has criticized Senator McCarthy repeatedly in recent months for hi.s campaign of unproved charges, innuendo find chor- nctcr assiissination the State Department. We now call the attention of our readers to the fnct that he was one of two Republicans to vote with a majority of the Democrats against, a bill which many students of economics believe would foster monopoly by facilitating identical prices over I he country. Views of Others Lone Consumer Commenting upon the new upsurge in building costs, several economists have pointed to the present vulnerable situation with respect to Inflation. Organized la^or BSKS for wage Increase* and gets them with little opposition because contractors know that they can pass the cost along to (lie public. There Is still R. large demand (or homes, so public, buying Is not In position lo resist the price Increase. As a result of this situation, both wages and costs arc going ahead rapidly In the vitally Important construction industry. This sort of slick working of the .Inflation spiral is peculiarly adaptable, to the constnlction Industry, but it Is found In a degree In many other lines of commerce. It works exceptionally well after a war which, by stopping production tioo ot civilian goods, has created demand greater than supply. It lsT.J>ci]italed by the fact that everyone but the HyHSUrncr Is organized. The only possible brake on this situation In the public minci is widespread publicity of what Is going on nnd Ihe way it Is being reflected in the cost of living. The source of fact.s for thus publicity Is found In the Bureau of Labor Statistics, but it is in a department that is dominated by the interests of organized labor. White the index to the cost of living Is probably honestly calculated, not much information is given the public on what Is gouig on and why. Congress should do something to sec that bet- ler information is given the public In (his field. The consumer will never be organizer! for the simple reason that nearly all consumers are also producers and they have a very human way of centering their attention upon their intcrsts us producers. If the government has a logically paternalistic [iinclion, it Is in this field. —DALLAS MORNING NEWS So They Soy Oh, Well; We Can Always Go Fishing THURSDAY, .JUNK 22, 1050 Peter ft/son's Washington Column — Aroused Indiana Businessmen Feeling Their Political Oats Workings of Grand Jury Are Explained Hy JAMCS MAlil.OW WASHINGTON (Jl; — guy a special fedora] Brand jury is appointed, is 11 was In New York, to look Into n special situation, such as subversive activities. The DOCTOR SAYS By Kmvi.V I'. JOItDAN'. ill. 1). Written for NEA Service Four Ih of five articles on polio. The first step in (he treatment of poliomyelitis Is to make the diagnosis as early as possible. Tills is not always easy because the disease really begins several days before there are any signs of paralysis. . the symptoms during this A!=o early stage are often like those of an ordinary cold or mild infection. At this point it ought to oe emphasized that a good many people have the early symptoms but never get any paralysis at all. As soon as a definite case hns been discovered the other members of the lamily should be examined. When ihc diagnosis of polio has been made the patient usually should be treated in the hospital The U.S. Uislrict Attorney for that New York federal district, acting for his boss, the Attorney General, lias asked the judge for the district to set up the Jury. He wants It for this special \t^, vesifgation. Its job is to deck" whether anyone should be Indicted — formally charged — with subversive aclivitlr-s. (Since subversion is a major crime, the district attorney by himself couldn't charge anyone with H or force him to trial unless a grand Jury, hearing the evidence, thought such a charge justified. The Constitution says that it must be done that way. (The district atlomcy could gather his evidence and lay it before the regular grand jury, which Is loaded down wilh passing on routine crimes, and wouldn't have time for a full investigation of subversion. (Or. he could ask for a grand jury not only to pass on (he evidence but make, or help him make, a full-blown Investigation.* Jury Independent But — since the district attorney presents the evidence to the special grand jury, isn't it a sort of yes- quires special treatment with a respirator or iron lung, or course, this is a serious complication, but many recover completely, often without any paralysis at all.

Rest, relaxation, and measurcs muscular By I'KTER EDSON Nl"A Service Correspondent INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (NBA) — The Indiana state Chamber ot Commerce nad the Indiana Manufacturers' Association are in politics right up to the hilt. They are holding meetings, printing, publish- in?: and propagandizing all over the slate at an unprecedented rate. There are sonic Indiana political observers who believe that this newly awakened interest of businessmen in politics is accomplishing no net change in the political atmosphere. In other words, it is claimed that the businessmen are only talking to themselves and convincing those already convinced of their views. But there Is more, to It than that. Crossing the state twice, stop- ping In hair a doMn smaller cities its well as Indianapolis, this correspondent had run Into many new manifestations an awakened in a .Tilly 1. 1!H9, letter to his members. The subject of this letter was "Political Strategy." H marked the .start of an llnpublicized but none training later are important. Proper nursing care is invaluable as are measures to combat the muscle spasm which accompanies the early stages of poliomyelitis. For (he latter purpose, the hot wet packs which have been so successfully employed and publicized by MLss Elizabeth Kenny have proved of great benefit. They help to relieve the pain and skin tenderness which often accompanies the disease. When poliomyelitis strikes it Is the 1948 election. Another was the legislative program which the Democratic-controlled House almost put over in the 10-19 state legislature. Still another was growing -ipposi- lion by businessmen to proposals or the Truman administration in Washington, finally there was a general feeling that something had to be done in the way of political organization to offset the success of the CIO Political Action Commit- "Thcre is a powerful amj efficient organization working against your best interests." wrote A.

If West returned another club, dummy could ruff while South discaidcd a diamond. West actually returned a diamond, hoping to collect three trick. 1 in the suit. This lead, however, permitted South to win a trick with the king of diamonds. j The point of discarding the heart was that Pete was safe even if West had held more hearts. When V.'cs' took the queen of clubs, only the queen and ten of hearts were out, and Soutli was safe no matter vho held these cards. If West coiitd lead the queen of hearts, South could ruff at once. Later on he would discard a diamond on the Jack of hearts. If West could lead Ihe ten of hearls, South would play dummy's jack.
