Moscow Hits a New Low One of Moscow's cruelest jests 1« the propaganda charge that th« food nnd seed with which we helped to sustain Russia as otir ally in World War II was impure. The idea, say the propagandists, is thai we deliberately set out to infect Russia's own food supply. What this amounts to is a claim tliat we engaged in a sort of indirect germ warfare against our comrades in arms at the very moment we both were striving earnestly to crush Hitler. No statement that luis ever emanated from the Kremlin is more despicable than this. It suggests that Russia is bent upon convincing her people irrevocably that Americans are their bitter enemies. It suggests that Russia wants her citizens never again to think well of us. What use could this venom serve but that? Surely we are but a step or two away from Soviet claims that the tanks, guns and planes we sent to Russia in wartime were defective and a positive menace to their users. That ought to complete the job of making a wartime ally seem an evil foe in disguise. Right Out of Hitler's Book Views of Others Always .Relative Batching l« that summer period which tome mm look forward to and are darn glad when it's 'Economic Forecast Shows Fai r Weather for Time Being Another business scare seems to have Tunished in air. Once more the economist* are flying their brightest flags; •om« «ven proCess to see fair economic weather clear through 1351. Thi» year, of course, there's been no serious downturn in business activity like that in 1949. The biggest storm warning was the unemployment figure, which kept mounting until by February it hit better than 4,600,000. There was talk of 5,500,000 out of work by fail, and higher totals later. Th« great labor federations were getting ready to demand huge public works programs to take up the slack. Now it's all different. Unemployment has fallen to around 3,000,000. Actually, more than 2,700,000 additional workers are employed today as compared with gloomy February. But the U. S. labor force is growing swiftly, and many of those who have found jobs are new workers. The Federal Reserve Board has just •truck a cheerful note. It foresees continued heavy demand for automobiles, homes, and the durable products that to with the home—furniture, iceboxes, gloves, and the like. Tf the board is right, and it has a lot of company in this forecast, the solid basis exists for maintenance of high level business actilvity for many months. Does all this mean we ran slop worrying about a depression? We've shrugged off so many false scares since the war ended that no one could bo blamed for thinking maybe we can slay out of trouble for a long time. And perhaps we can. Some experts point out that the foundation for much of this encouraging growth of business lies in two fundamental facts: the marked increase in population, and the still greater rise in the number of new family units. It is this latter, especially, which helps account for the un-prcccdented demand for housing and household goods. New homes are being formed at an almost unbelievable pace. And the end of the upward trend is far out of sight in the future. Yet, with all this healthy growth, we still ought to exercise reasonable caution in viewing the future. Prospects are good, yet. But we have to remember that the economic system we live by is a delicate machine with many inter-locking parts. A breakdown anywhere can spread rapidly to other places. That doesn't mean we shouldn't maintain our optimism. It simply means we should be on the watch for signs of maladjustment, should move in quickly to repair the damage before it can hobble the whole economy. How big can a nation the size of the United States permit "economic concentrations" to grow without becoming economically, socially, or politically dangerous? The answer still seems no more than In th» making. Old criteria as to what, constitutes monopoly and old remedies are being abandoned. Yet an uneasiness over the trend toward giantism still ehow.s up. Peter Dnieper, in a recent Harper's sumirmr- l/.es'some of the -best current thought on the question. The old measuring stick of "perfect competition" (prices varying from day to day and seller to seller) is being replaced by the Idea of "workable competition." This Is a competition which may tolerate stable and often uniform prices, but which brings the consumer lower price! and better nunlily. Another new yardstick measures not the size of ll\f "bigs" but the vitality and energy of the "littles." And still another gauges justification of size by the function to be performed. (Oil transportation should be and ts concentrated; oil marketing should be and is diverse and competitive.) The really tough question is political — and only partially partisan: What constitutes too great i>ower in private hands? Today it is accepted with remarkable unanimity that the American system rests upon a balance between big business, big labor, and big government—a balance that is best preserved, not unset. A complex picture,.But this Is a complex age. Out of It, however";""fetncrge at least the bare outlines of an answer: That bigness Is neither good nor bad of itself but only in relation to other factors. —CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR A Mere Detail So They Soy Crises Are Expected In Korea for a Time The DOCTOR SAYS By KIWIS P. JORDAN. M. D. Wrlllen for NEA Service Everyone has become so used to new "wonder" drugs of the anti- alotlc family which attack Infectious diseases that it is hard to keep up with them. Penicillin came first. The history of this remarkable substance, which was originally obtained from a mold, is too well known to need repeating. Millions of people who have received penicillin for pneumonia, meningitis, and a host of other diseases, owe their lives to that substance, or at least have been sparcc perhaps weeks or months of costly Peter ft/son's Washington Column — 1950 Senate Race Is Shunned By 3 Midwestern Governors COLUMBUS. Ohio (NEA) Tt is a curious political /act that in this off-year election the Democrats are not putting forward their best possible candidates in the three key midwestern states of Ohio, Indiana and Illinois. The three best men in these states are their governors — Frank J. Lausche of Ohio, Henry F. Schricker ol Indiana, and Adlal B. Stevenson of Illinois. Their senatorial candidates in these states are Auditor Joseph T. Ferguson in Ohio, Sell. Scott Lucas, in Illinois, and cx-Asst. Atty. Gen. Alex Campbell in Indiana. The three Republicans Democrats will have to beat arc the incumbent Senators Robert A. Talt of Ohio and Komer Capchart of Indiana, former Rep. Everett Dirksen formidable Illinois. All three are opposition ior entirely different reasons; because of varying personalities, backgrounds and political situations. Lauschc, Schricker and -Stevenson have built up amazing records. They may not yet be presidential material. They are dnfnitcly good vice presidential material, and first- class senatorial material.

' Dr. Hull starts out with the cost of tritium. It would take six tons of that at $240,000,000 n pound at current prices. Six tons would be 12,000 pounds and 12,000 times $240,000,000 would be. the .same as twelve times $240,000,000,000 (If you are doing it on the margin with your pencil)—or $2,880,000,000,000 (trillions).

If South continued to draw all of East's trumps, he would then have only one trump left in his own hand. When he led diamonds, th& enemy would be able to lead a spade, forcing out the last trump.
