At the start of the year prospects for «xtenaion of federal controls seemed dim. The President wanted them continued a year beyond Ilia June 30 deadline; he got only half that, but controls «re being kept alive. He achieved this much largely because this is an election year and many congressmen from large cities feared reprisals at the polls if they allowed controls to lapse. Surely Mr. Truman is well aware of the issue's political potency. If you strip away the political covering, what is the merit of the rent control argument in 1950? Price controls are long since gone from every other area of American life. la there any justice in continuing them on housing alone? A fair answer would seem to be that so long as a general housing shortage existed rent ceilings federally governed were a wise and proper measure. For the theory behind any price control is to block an upward price surge when demand for a product clearly outruns supply. Unless all signs art wrong, there has been no genera! shortage of 'living space in this country for a long time. Serious deficiencies continue in many localities, but the impact of three years of heavy private building gradually is making itself felt in more and more areas. Perhaps the whole matter thus should have b«nn turned back to the states and cilirs last year or earlier. They do have power to decontrol if they feel their situation warrants, and a lot of sections have exercised that power. But by staying in the picture, the federal government has given other areas an excuse for not establishing their own controls—as would seem more sensible. N'ew York and Wisconsin already are operating under state rent controls. Their initiative unhappily hasn't been widely copied. The time has come to leave the problem 1 to the places where shortages still exist. They've leaned on Washington long enough for protection. The new extension won't go beyond next January. But the bill provides that after the next deadline communities can continue controls another six months at their option. It would be better if this feature had been left out, for it simply delays further the period when localities shall havs to lUnc! on lh»ir own feet. Controls should stay wherever there Ii real housing lack. But the dots on the national shortage map we no longer big enough to be the concern of Wash- Inglon.

Unfortunately no additional vessels are planned us a follow-up to this hopeful revival in U S passenger shipbuilding. America has considerably less capacity than before the war for carrying troops overseas in event of war. Security demands that we go farther in expanding our own passenger fleet. Views of Others South Wants to Face the Facts Tulnne University lias set up a new research Institute to study tlie movement of Southerners Irani farm to factory nml other social problems. In terms of headlines, the shift from agriculture to Industry is gradual. But In terms of history it is precipitous, not much more than a matter of one man's lifetime. Some of the questions the Institute pro[)oses to answer, are: If, as expected, five million people leave Southern farms In the next 10 years, where will we find enough Jobs for them? A.i Industrialization gathers momentum, what kind of Industries should we encourage for the aake of long-term stability and progress? What about state and city government? With rural populations thinning out and the cities gathering in more thousands, how should we modify governmental forms to meet the new conditions? The Tulane group will be In a good position to look Into these questions because it should be able to take a clear view, unclouded by the factionalism of politic*. Thli institute has the co-operation of the State Employment Security office, and the assurance of some financial support. But much of the $50,000 annual budget will come from the Edward Schlieder Educational Foundation. The institute's advisory committee will consist entirely of Tulane people. Here we have a group that tackles a which badly needs doing. The South will look forward with Interest to iU findings. —ARKANSAS DEMOCRAT Perish the Thought!

But an awful lot of his time is spent on Farm Bureau business—at his Imlianapotis office, around the .^tate, testifying in Washington or at APBA headquarters In Chicago. Indiana doesn't have the system of Farm Bureau control over county agents n'nd govr eminent, agricultural extension programs found in other mid- western s t a L e B. Has.sU Schenck says lie is just a>> happy to operate: under the Indiana system. He therefore has no L interest in the big Washington fight over legislation designed' to divorce the Department of Agriculture from partial Farm Bureau direction. Schenck says he is liever in states' rights, however, and if other states want to operate that way. It's up to them. On other major Farm Bureau programa, Schenck goes along. Ifc has opposed the Hrannau plnn. and built up a pretty good support from Indiana Republicans nnd the Democrats who hold the < same view, Schenck says, however, that he believes there nas been too much emphasis on this discussion of price supports- His contention is that price supports alone do not make a furm program- He readies in his coat pocket and putls out a card.

The prophecy of Jonah hax a anything from u 15-tninute to a full hour's speech on each of the 20 points." There just wasn't lime for the full course. But Mr. Schenck did furnish a copy o f the card. And the mere listing ol his 20 points was something of a major feat in Itself- If memory serves a-rlght, never has even the most dreamy- eyed planner in Washington dared to set down in one place all the things he would like to have In the way of a farm program, of which price supjports and|or the Brannan plim would be only 5 per cent of the total.
