Whe U everybody going to get smart to the fact that ft cowcatcher is put on engines to catch autos? Strong Restriction Only Remedy for UMW Boss Some people have hailed Speaker Joe ' Martin's "settlement" of the coal strike as a master stroke of great political significance. They would have you be'•• lieve that it has put Mr. Martin in the running for the Republican presidential nomination or that, at very least, he ia now a dark horse of a considerable lighter color. But Mr. Martin is a shrewd citizen who has been in politics a long time. And we would imagine that before counting any chickens he has done some counting on hia fingers. If he has, he has discovered that from April 12, when the pension difficulties miraculously dissolved, until June 30. when the UMW contract expires, is 80 days. Now if the.government had used its Taft-Hartley powers on April 12 to send 7ni»ers' back to work, they would have been forbidden to strike for 80 days. But that would have been too much for John L, Lewis to swallow. It would have meant that the power of a law which he hates would have been , weilded by President Truman, who'm he bitterly dislikes. That probably ox-plains Mr. Lewis' amazingly sudden acceptance of Mr. Martin's remarkably proposal. By agreeing with Mr. Martin, Mr. Lewis kept the law from forcing him to lose face by ending the strike. He also has, or probably fancies he has, turned the spotlight on another possible convention threat to Senator Taft, whose co-authorship of the labor relations law seems to have added him to John L.'s lengthy hate list. But the results will doubtless be the . same, whether they are achieved by agreement or injunction. Some coal will again be doled out to our hungry factories, generators and railroads. The miners may work through Republican convention week. But that doesn't mean that the country won't hear the familiar announcement of "no contract, n o work" on the 30th of June. We may all be grateful to Mr. Martin • for finding a temporary solution to one of the periodic crises which John L Lewis' swollen ego inflicts on our econ, omy. But we don't think that his welcome service in helping to end the strike ( « enough to start a Martin landslid roll* ing m Philadelphia next June. We don't think that it has solved the problem of _ John L. Lewis. We doubt that Mr. M ar . ; tin thinks so, either. Somehow it seems an admission of incapacity wherv.Congress has to tailor a ' piece of legislation to fit one man. But \ , it may,have to be done in Mr. Lewis' : ; ease, as it was in .Mr. Petrillo's. ' t The threatened tie-up of the nation's .; ^ economy every few months by John. L. V , Lewis has long since become insuffer- *bk. U i> dangerous and degrading that thig country must make sacrifices to the »elf-irnportance of a jwmpous labor dictator and his undemocratic organization. Distasteful as restrictive labor law may be, it seems that strong restriction it, the oiily remedy in this ease. The contest is between freedom of action for Mr. Lewis or for the 'American people, their government and their commerce. As things stand now, Mr. Lewis has the freedom, and the country suffers. No Laughing Matter There is a tendency in this country to laugh at South American revolutions. But the rioting in Colombia was a serious matter. It not only took hundreds of lives and caused tremendous damage. 11 also showed the trained ability of Communists to exploit and profit by such uprisings. Communists are now a strong factor in Colombia and Costa Rica, on each side of the vital Panama Canal. In Panama they were instrumental in that country's denial of military bases to the U. S. It is time our government gave the South American Reds (he serious attention that their menacing activities warrant. VIEWS OF OTHERS Eyes on Bogota The first question the world outside Latin America' asks about the Colombia revolt concerns the extern of Communist inspiration and participation. This !s natural, in Cogc!=, the- capjjal, where violence reached a climax, a great inter-American conference has been taking place, with the United States in n leading role. Elsewhere throughout much of the world the International community, both American and European, which looks to the United States for leadership, is in conflict; with international Commumun. What more spectacular feat of disorganization ot western endeavor could the Communists ask than this eruption of volcanic Latin emotions in Colombia? It has laid waste much- ot the ccr.= ference city. It has ccst a reported 300 lives, it has put fn doubt the continuance of the inter- American meeting there. There seems no doubt that Communists participated in the revolt. At least two Russian agents are listed among instigators caught by government forces, and more are said to be involved. The Colombian Government has stressed the Internationa] aspect of the outbreak by break- Ing diplomatic relations with the Soviet Union. However, it goes almost without saying these days that wherever there Is political turmoil there will be found Communists, either engineering it or taking a free ride. The severance ot Colombian relations with the Soviet Union could be usctul to the government at Bogota in throwing the emphasis away from other purely Colombian reasons for ihe revolt. Reported repressions of opposition elements by the Conservative dominated Colombian Government, and the artificiality of the Conservative- Liberal coalition whlcn ru:cd wncn the conference opened (apparently in a truce airanged for appearance's sake), these Indicate a situation in which Internal political explosives needed at most a nudge to set them off.

But that wis long enough lor Communist propagandists to get In some awfully good licks against U. S. intentioi that Spain would not be excluded Irom the Marshall Plan.

S. and other Allied nations -did business with him during the war to keep him from openly joining up v.-ith Hitler and Mussolini, wi.3 were also doing business with him. All this time most American officials were saying privately that Franco would have to go when the war over. The big question was Madrid. It was a purely social visit how to get rid of him. Nobody knows and it caused no concern in Madrid. When Moscow radio got hold of tills event, however, it reported the answer yet. In the meantime, Franco has dug himself in more solidly than at any time since lie that U. s. Gen. Lucius 'Clay was i-i began his revolution in 1036.

Lovett says it's up to the European nations to decide whether they want to cut Spain in on their recovery program. So far, none of them does. Stilt, any good planning for total European recovery should include Spain as a necessary part of a natural geographic and economic unit. The question is how to include her without taking Franco at the same time.
