Premier Stalin has probably followed those directions already. If lie lias, he must have seen in this House action, and the events that led up to it. n demonstration of our military policy nntl planning which undoubtedly interested him much more than the proposed action of 15 groups to our air arm. The President of the United States and Commander-in-Chief of its armed forces had proposed an air strength of 55. combat groups. The secretary of the newly-created Defense Department had seconded that proposal. But the secretary, of the Air Force had recommended to Congress an air strength of 70 groups. ' ' The House voted for this expansion ; without any apparent concern for the problem of finding men to operate, .service and .administer these extra 15 com-' bat groups. It would lake around- 75 000 more men to put a 70-grotip force -into the air. But the House lias made no move , toward any compulsory procurement of manpower to fill the armed services- thin ranks. If the Soviet dictator, observing all -, this, concluded that the U. S. has no real ; military policy as yet, it is not hard to , tmclerstand why. If he also concluded that America's new unification of the armed forces was not very unified there are examples to justify that conclusion In fact, , t seems pretty clear that the old fights and jealousies are still K oin K - on - The day before the House voted for example, General Bradley, the chief of stalf, had argued for an Armv of 8*2 000 men before the House Armed ScrJ- '«s Committee. Secretary of Defense torrcstal previously had proposed a force of 728,000 men. The difference of JO.OOO bcUv ccn the •tv,o ftgurc, ls nol too importam does seem important i s that the chie •of staff and the secretary of Armv can .not reach .« compromise with their ch. an superior, .Mr. Forrestal, on this rela- support it and imco-ordinated The ] ack of co . 01 . dination a" along the line.

IVo costly wars may liavs laujrlit our government the need of being prepared. But it seems that the equal noerl of unity and plnnmng in thai preparation* is a lesson -that has still to Lie Icnmed. Chiang's Change of Heart Dispatches from China say Hint Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek, who took himself firmly aiul definitely out of the running R couple of weeks ago, was elected president after all. We don't know how this news will strike the Eisenho.wer enthusiasts. But at least it indicates that the ranks of reluctant generals for president h ilv e been broken. VIEWS OF OTHERS To Save the City of Jerusalem /' There hns beet: Jnstnnl and widespread response to the proposal of Bishop Charles Kendall Gilbert or the Episcopal Diocese o[ New York that the United Nations take steps lo protect the sacred historical spots of Jerusalc|n, whatever disposition is made of the Palestine problem as a whole. Here are ihrint-s and monument sacred to Christian, jew and Moscicm alike. They are the subject of history and prophecy of the Old Testament, the New Testament and the Koran. The tides of war have ebbed and flowed about tlicin through all the centuries. Yet they have been spared destruction since the Emporor Titus razed the Temple of Solomon. But last Saturday, shells from Arab guns fell within the walls. The armed forces of Jew, Arab and Briton are all now represented In the Old city. Unless strong measures are taken, a K eneral conflict may break out at any time and destroy Hie historic landmarks. Whether or not a trusteeship is set up for all Palestine, then one certainly ought to be set. up for the Holy city, if the necessary action is not completed by the May 15 deadline .set by the British for moving out, the British Government should be prevailed upon to maiutan watch until the UN ca n take over. —ST.

Decrease in, Drinking High prices have 'had one cheerful effect— they have discouraged a tremendous-amount of drinking. Federal liqutv tax revenue dropped $360,000.000 between 1046 and 1947. Government officials lu Washington report the taxes on alcoholic beverages in 1046 at $2,C90.9B2,0(!5 and for 1947 $2,330.100,173. As taxes represent only a part of Hie cost of liquor to the public, (he decrease in sales obviously ran much ureatcr than the $360822,792 tax decline.
