Congress Again i Former Senator Prentiss Brown says that, „ OP A Administrator Prontis.s Brown achieved a masterpiece when he provided for food subsidies (o tlic processors to' he!]) lower price ceilings without decreasing (lie return to anybody. •War Information Director Klmcr Davis on the radio tried hard to explain why it is better for the consuming public to pay. for part of its food through taxes rather than in store prices. But members of Congress, including many Democrats, got up on their hind legs and protested bitterly about the new attemp^ to buttress an aiiti-inlla- tion program that, by concession of : high oflicialdom, had broken 'down so i ,far as food prices ,were concerned. : \ The congressmen, in many instances, • are dubious of the value of the subsidy' ' ^system or go so far as to consider it bpeeifically vicious. But their bittcr- 'n'ess does not spring from that difference of opinion. It arises from the fact that once more the executive branch has "legislated" a "reform" which Congress, after careful deliberation, refused to enact. , .There is a big question whether such subsidies have any practical value. It' they do, it is as another indirect method of sharing the wealth— in this instance of making John Smith pay for part of the Brown family's food. J ' »'»''•. In any event, Congress bad,, been asked to provide-'-'funds 1 to finance '-sub- ' : sidles, and had refused. Whereupon, ^on the plea of emergency, using funds appropriated for other purposes, the administration began doing what Con- • gress had refused permission . for it 'to do. Once moie this raises the question whethei it is possible for the repiibli- i | can mechanism of democratic govern- I ment to function in time of emergency, i or .whethei it is necessary for us to t eliminate the law-making branch, sidc- | track the judiciary by working so fast ! that it cannot intervene effectively, and 4 entuibt our government entirely to the .White House. ••'.." 1 ->- - *.;•'"» ,'" ' ' . : Perhaps this. is what should be done. ..1 Lie <:P 'fmesr-sueli, for example, as , t ^hi.c; the House':: was fiddling futilelv •with a ,,ew tax bill-when the public ;«ets awfully fed. up with procrastina- ( tion, -politics, delay; ; But if.

He feels that the method "smells in most cases" and defeats Labor's aim of building up union membership for bargaining purposes. We agree with iUr. Tobin. But'does he forget? It is the construction un- 19118 whicli have abused work permits flagrantly. The malignant evil in Mr. Tobin's union i.s work-faking—the requirement by one local unioni that its members must be paid to ride /trucks driven by good union chauffeurs from other jurisdictions. Against this Mr. Tobin's voice is not yet raised; New Antisubmarine' Although the American Navy seems slow about realizing its potentialities, the Rrilish are going ahead with a new weapon \vliicJi might enable us to win the war against Hitler's most potent remaining weapon, the submarine.
