Robinson Case Shows Need For Curb in Investigations Secretary of SUite Marshall's plea for calmness in the face of serious world emergency came at a time when Hamilton Robinson, of Mr. Marshall's department, was being cross-examined by a House subcommittee. Mr. Robinson is head of the Office of Controls, and it is his job to enforce security regulations in the State Department. Rep. Fred Busbey does not think - Mr. Robinson is doing a good job and want* him ousted. At the risk of seeming to belabor some congressional operations unduly, ,we should like to review the background and charges in the case and try once again to undestand the process of gome concessional thinking. Mr. Robinson is a member of the New York Republican Club. Mr. Robinson went to Taft School, Princeton, Oxford, •and Yale Law School. He used to be ' with a Wall Street law firm. He is also the man whs was criticized last summer • for'discharging 10 State Department em- ployes as bad security risks without trial or explanation. But Mr. Busbey's (|tiarrel is not with . such summary justice^ Quite the con- |trary. It appears that the congressman 'considered Mr. Robjnson a bad risk him- 'self. For Mr. Robinson has three second cousins. And one of them visited •Russia 13 years ago, had been investigated by the FBI for pro-Communist activity, and had resigned from the State ! Department before Mr. Robinson went to work there. • That was the charge against the security officer: his second cousin was an alleged left-winger. Mr Busbey didn't say Mr. Robinson was one. Mr. Kobinson said that he had only seen this relative at a few social functions since lie came to Washington. He admitted that the cousin was far to his left, politically, and that their views were in violent disagreement. But that didn't satisfy Jlr. Busbey. For he had Mr. Robinson back a second day for more grilling. The last we saw he hadn't built any case against the State Department officer, whose most grievous sin seems to be his inability to control hi* second cousin's political opinions. Some may find this incident ridicu- wu« enough to be amusing. We think it is M amusing as the old Nazi practice of discriminating against German citizens, and sometimes dispossessing them, because one of their grandparents was -Jewish, The difference seems slight to us. Mr. Busbey is sworn U> uphold the Constitution. Yet he embarrasses a man MKl want* the government to discharge him, not for his actions, not for his thought*, not for his associations, but . ' because of the accident his rather div ' , ta«t Mood relation to a man whose poll- tics are suspect. Such Behavior inflames the unthinking and digusts the intelligent. It aids the Communist cause and cloaks the real Communist danger. Coupled with similar behavior from the Thomas Committee, it points up the immediate need for Congress to curb these foolish, time- wasting, passion-arousing performances at a time when a grave crisis demands all the intelligence, energy and democratic decorum that the legislators can possibly muster. One Difference Settled Besides its practical advantages, the British government decision to lift the confiscatory 75 per cent tax on American films shows that international difference can be settled by mutually accepting compromise. With this decision, Hollywood producers will regain a source of income which sometimes meant the difference between profit and loss on a picture. Britain will get additional dollars from an expected increase in British film bookings here. And, not least important, Britons will have a favorite form of entertainment restored to their still austere existence. VIEWS OF OTHERS Cotton's Spokesman At the Greater Little Rock. Chamber of Commerce luncheon honoring Harold A. Young of Pulaski county, who has been elected president of the National Cotton Council, the principal address was given by Oscar Johnson, retiring president and founder of the council. The entire cotton Industry—In the fields of the South and West. In the mills of New England and the Southeast—has reflected the work of Oscar Johnson, cotton planter of Scott, Miss. The council which he organized Ln 1934 brought unity to the national Industry. Through it the growers, traders and nmnfacturcrs have been made more aware of the joint problems, and above all have been encouraged to recognlte that their diverse Interests actually converge. Jn forming » representative body, the industry has come to see Itself more clcany with respect to national and International economist. It has gained perspective and strength. Inler-rcglonal misunderstandings have been replaced by a national cotton policy. Speaking as one body, representing millions of Americans who depend In varying degree on the filwr. It can forcefully work, toward.a sound federal government program. Oscar Johnson has performed excellent service for the economic development of the South and Weal. Although a cotton man by profession, he has devoted himself to improving the position of cotton so it car, retell-. its rightful pUce without encroaching on other activities. He relinquishes Ills position at th e head of the council 'to a man who likewise believes in well' balanced farming, with cotton growing only where It Is a suitable crop. Harold A. coung, who has served as vice president of the council since he helped Oscar Johnson found it, has the broad interests and the experience to qualify him to carry forward an enlightened cotton program. —ARKANSAS GAZETTE. Pointed Prayer Many leaders In private life have joined church men in urging Ihe nation to do more praying over its troubles at home, and the turmoil that the world has fallen into. This is good advice. But, as someone has said, the fault In much of our praying is that we ask for miracles, while we fail to do nil that we might do lo make conditions better. It Is. he added, as if we asked, "Oh, Lord, grant lhat twice two be not four." . We might all usefully think of a few words from a prayer by the chaplain of the United States Senate, the Reverend Peter Marshall: "Help us, O Lord, when we wnnt to do the right thing, and knew not what it Is. But help us most when we know perfectly well what we ought to do. and do not want lo do it." To do what \ve know we should do would end a lot of our troubles. —ARKANSAS DEMOCRAT.
