Perennial Postal Deficit Needs Careful Analysis ' Bills to rescind ihe Post Office Department's recent cuts in mail service, await floor action in both houses of Congress. But the lawmakers might, better devote their energy to something else, for these measures won't mean anything even should they become law. The reason is simple: Congress won't provide the money needed to restore the service reductions. In fact, the department in all likelihood will enter the 1950-51 fiscal year with its budget somewhat trimmed. It's another case of the legislators trying to have their cake and eat it, too. Post Office deficits are chronic. The Congress never has faced up to the problem how to put the department' on « consistently paying basis. This year postal operations are $545,000,000 in the red. If the cuts ordered by Postmaster General Donaldson serve, to stir the public enough to push the lawmakers toward some read solution, they may be a good thing. Even though, according to an early survey of thc effects of the changes, a considerable number of business firms are siifferng. The reductions in service themselves are certainly no solution. At best it was hoped they would chop $30,000,000 off operating costs, but experience to date suggests the saving may be substantially less. The big money losers in the department are the second, third and fourth class mail services handling, respectively, newspapers and magazines, advertising circulars, and parcel post. Only first class mail and postal savings earn their way. Each of these red-ink services ought to be examined closely by Congress with a view to streamlining it and getting it onto the most efficient basis possible. Wherever they apply, the recommendations of the Hoover Commission should be adopted. If such revamping docs not produce the economies needed to wipe out the deficits in these categories, then Congress would seem to have no choice but lo raise rates so operations can get back into the black. Any other course amounts to flat acknowledgement that Congress is prepared to carry the Post Office Department indefinitely as a cumbersome, inefficient giant that cannot earn its salt. If the lawmakers should surprise by really buckling down to this task, they ought also to end for all time the absurd fiction of "air mail subsidies" to the airlines. American civil aviation may need subsidy to survive; that's a problem of another sort. But what is thought wise for the airlines has nothing to do with running the air mail service, which should function according lo costs and standards suitable to its own special nature. fRIDAY, . !», 1M* . once over lighlly— By A.

WASHINGTON — (NEA) — The mysterious disappearance of the only U.S. surface warship unaccounted for at the end of World had failed Sunday School Lesson .BY WILLIAM K. Gll.ROV, !>.!>. Moses stands as the typical liberator and leader, not only of Israel, but of all history. And as liberator and leader, though he shares this particular fame with others, he stands as a law-giver, establishing codes and principals for lhe orderly life and welfare of men in society. That is greatness enough, but upon what factors of incident and charater was such greatness established? The first incident is the one dear to every child, the babe in the little basket of bulrushes and lar, discovered by Pharoah.s daughter, the child of affection and the palace, though nursed covertly upon his own mother's milk (Exodus 2:1-10). Who knows n'hat divine alchemv may have been iti that mither's milk? In any ciise the child, grown itmn, refused to be called the son of Pharoah's daughter, choosing lather to suffer the affliction of his own people (Hebrews 11:23-25). Here was lhe first indication of true greatness, and the first step toward a great career—the set- ling of principle, and devotion lo a people and a cause, above self- interest and the alluring life of ease and power in a palace. A selfish man may become powerful, but he can never be truly great. The next step was the promptness with which Moses put this devotion to his people into action. His choice was not one of theory or aloofness, but of definite commitment to a cause. His first action, in siding with a fellow Israelite, and killing nn Egyptian in what might have been a private quarrel, may have been an act of impulsiveness and of poor strategy, for it compelled him to escape for I his life. He discovered, too, that I all Jews were not as loyal to their j own people as himself. } But that action in killing lhe Egyptian, however doubtful in il- isetf. left no doubt regarding Moses' j capacity for action, and the com- to reveal^any _tra_ce of ship although she was stopped dead pleteness of his devotion to the Time Now Has Come For Stand on Reds her.

By DeWITT MACKENZIE AP Korean Attain Anal;**' Britain's quick action in offering the United' States powerful naval support in the Korean crisjs vastly strengthens the hand of democracy in deallni; with this fresh Communist aggression. T^' The wholt house of" commona broke into cheers when Prim* Minister Attlee announced that British naval forces in Japanese waters were being tendered to the U.S.A. for immediate use. And former Prune Minister Winston Churchill was immediately on his feet to pledge the Socialist premier the support of the Conservative Party in this dramatic move. Solidarity Show Whether America actually need* this extra naval aid is of far les* importance than the fact that w* have here another striking exhibition of solidarity between these twn great world powers. That's a potent warning against further Red aggression. ' Not all the democracies have been so quick to stand up and be counted. Many have been proceeding more, cautiously, with a weather eye on Moscow. Self-preservation is a natural impulse, but this Is a crisis in which outspoken unity among the democracies Is badly needed. It's no tim€ to hedqe. "Stand at Armageddon" Either "we sta»d at Armageddon and we battle for the Lord" (to I a line from the late Teddy Rol veltl. or we just "stand at Ar3f- ageddon" period. America has given » lead in her dramatic promulgation of an active policy for containment of Red aggression in the Far East. The U.N. has legalized that policy by calling on all nations to use such measures as are necessary to halt the attack on Korea. The Communist world, headed br Russia, is in process of assaying the position—of figuring out whether the Western nations mean business or are just blustering. Moscow's first reactions, as . displayed in editorial comment, charged aggression but were comparatively mild! The Bolshevists are feeling their way. Altack Continue* Meantime the northern Korean armed forces continue their attack on the South Korean republic, and the defenders have lost their capital. Seoul, along with some other key points. American warplanes are in action against the aggressors and have delivered effective attacks, and more Yankee air power Is on it* way. A few U.S. airplanes are reported destroyed. President Truman has warned us that "we face a serious situation." However, he expressed the hope that his decision to use American force will bring peace to the world ultimately. I believe that hope is well foujjjB ed.
