Pols Enter Mapmaking Business in Arkansas "Pols," (lie word with connotations us (iriatlracliv'e B« its phonetics, often will find themselves at odds with this newspaper's editorial policy . . . we hope. For the benefit of those who haven't become familiar with the word, n )>ol i» generally defined HS a product of our parliculiir ward-lieeling- type of democracy. And it \VHS in the grand manner rcmiiiiscenl of a pol's thinking: that the Arkansas Iligluviu 1 Department acted when it ordered 75,000 road nuips at the expense of the taxpayers. These maps carry H picture of Governor Ale- Math and outline his road construction program. The maps, cost at which hasn't been told, are of practically no use to the tourist, since they dwell in the main on what haa been done nnd what's going to he dune to the stale's highways. The Highway Department will also get the job of distributing the.maps. Jfighway Department time and personnel are furnished by courtesy of th« Arkansas taxpayer. We think tliig typi/ies the bureaucracy which, as it grows, will require mole and more money to operate . . . »nd it's not difficult to sea why. 'Strike Aggressor' Tactic Merits Airing by Ike A now idoo in Far Eastern strategy if. going the rounds of United Nations capital* and NATO headquarters. It still is in the testing- stage, but it could find its way into formal policy some day. This is it: to negotiate a formal agreement among the Western powers to meat any new Communist aggression in Asia by retaliation against the aggressor rather than by strictly local resistance. Xo one can fairly say who first proposed this plan, h's one which has been mentioned in one form or another by a good many people over the last two years. But right now John Foster Dulles. Republican foreign policy expert, is its chief promoter. He's been plugging it in two places—with the French government and with General Eisenhower. Dulles thinks the present policy of local defense against aggression is too static. It might also be described as inconclusive and expensive. The British are tied down by rebel Reds in Malaya. The French army's finest are boxed in by Ho Chi .Minh's Communists in Indo-China. And American and UN forces are in a stalemate with I he Reds iu Korea. How many such local notions can the tree nations gel tangled up in without *preading themselves disastrously thin? Dulles and the other advocates of the "strike the aggressor" program believe it would be a better deterrent to aggression than piece-meal resistance to local invasions, ^specially since thes« latter could not all lie countered successfully without undue strain upon the West. Actually, both the American and Hritish governments li a v e played around the fringes of thin idea. They have Id it be known publicly lJi;U they would view any new aggression gravely —with the clear implication they might hike action broader than more local defense of a trouble spot. JJtH tlie matter has never been spelled out carefully in London or Washington or tiny'other capital. Dulles believes tin; time is right for this to bo done. lie has talked will) French leaders ' because in the past they have neon willing lo sponsor bold new adventures like I be Schuman coal-stec! pool and the Kuropean defense jinny. Tlie French, too, would have a big stake in the arrangement, since they are under continuous, threat of new aggression from Chinese Keds poised on tlie Indo-China border. Tlie plan lias definite attraction to any who are looking for a way out of Die puzzle posed by |he various Asiatic stalemates. Hut the matter needs to be debated widely. What would retaliation against an aggression consist of? What dangers of a new world war would it bring? Would real cooperation among the Western powers be enjoyed? There is some hint that Eisenhower may lake up the for the p'an when lie returns to America next month. In that event it would surely get the thorough airing it deserves, for whatever the general proposes when he enters the iwlitical arena is certain to be peppered from all sides. Department of Correction In some states and cities, the department of correction is an agency concerned with administering penal institutions and Hie like. In the United Stales government, it Is n special arm of the executive branch, with headquarters in the White House. Us purpose is setting the record straight after President Truman has held one of his regular press conferences. Its services were called upon most recently to pxplai'iii'thal an ultimatum which .Mr. Truman'said he had sent lo Joseph Stalin had not in fact ever been issued. Joseph Short, the President's secretary in charge of the press relations of tile White House, deserves the admiration of us all. As head of the department of correction in Washington, he is called upon to act with speed and often amazing ingenuity in the performance of his arduous duties.

It is the contention of many industrial leaders that this procedure was engineered to force the government's hand and make it an accomplice in getting union shop con tracts under emergency conditions. ' This charge is supported—unconsciously, perhaps, but none the less realistically — by statements from Nathan P. Feinslnger, Chairman of the Wage Stabilization Board that handed down the steel case recommendations.
