Tariff Puzzle For an administration that considers Itself wedded to the idea of more foreign trade, this one does some odd things. First there waa a hike in the tariff on Swiss watches, then on foreign-made bicycles. Now there are unmistakable signs the government is preparing to yield to domestic pressures which demand curbs on America's oil imports. Arthur S. Flemming, director of defense mobilisation, has warned U.S. oil companies and importers that, unless they cut back their imports from the current 19 per cent of domestic output to the 16.6 per cent that prevailed last year, import quotas would be slapped on. As in the case of the Swiss watch tariff move, the excuse is "national security." But the advocates of quotas, who who seem to have Won considerable congressional backing, fail to document that argument convincingly. Chiefly, they have failed to show how American security is promoted by a policy that would call for using up our domestic oil reserve faster than is necessary. Obviously, the more we draw upon foreign sources for vital oil supplies in peacetime, the more of- our own stocks we will have left on hand in the event of war. Nor can it be successfully established that America's oil industry is suffering makedly as result of imports. The industry is selling more oil products than ever before in its history —and at better prices. Furthermore, it is doing morec exploring and discovering of oil than ever. One would imagine that if the domestic industry were in trouble from imports, a problem of excess reserves would be developing. But the fact is that the industry is hunting harder than ever for new reserves, for all the forecasts indicate tremendously greater fuel demands in the years ahead. This hunt calls for heavy outlays of money. This year a record $3 billion will be put out. The industry would be unlikely to lay out that kind of money if the only effect would be to build a surplus that would depress its market. The market of course is not depressed. It it booming. Until there is a real showing that oil imports are hurting domestic interests seriously in this country, national security in this country, national security would appear to demand that they continue apace. The imposition of quotas would shatter the last hope that this administration genuinely intends to foster greater foreign trade to strengthen economic self- reliance in the wesiern family of nations. VIEWS OF OTHERS Benson And Hogs Pilling the little pigs was a depression policy of former Secretary Henry Wallace that haunted his future career in politics. Deflation had carried farm prices next to nothing and the first Roosevelt administration was in a hurry to inflate [he price structure. But the method applied to pigs was painful to the conserving traditions of farmers. Secretay Ezra Benson now confronts conditions in the pork field which are similar in a degree. The general economy is booming but farm prices are slipping. Hog prices rose to a peak of S26.50 per cwt. in April. 1954. after which a steady decline set in. By August, 1955, the price had slipped almost $11 per cwt. Benson is pledged to do something for pork producers it prices fall "too much." Probably what Benson has In mind is to repeat what was done for cattle producers when their average slumped from $27,20 in January. 1952 to Sl'4.50 in November, 1953. CaHle forced from drought-stricken areas flooded the market. The government then provided feed, bought 130 million pounds of lower-grade beef for school lunch and foreign aid programs and restricted imports from Canada and Mexico. Prices stabilized on a somewhat higher level, though additional support may be necessary. Benson may have a similar program for hogs. He is not expected to advocate killing little pigs to raise pork prices. — Oastonia (N. C.) Gazette. Aiming at the Unions A syndicated columnist the other day made the statement that the Communists now have as their immediate objective the conquest of big labor organizations. By what cunning arguments and crooked methods they hope tp achieve this aim, it is not declared. No ordinary methods in this instance would avail anything. Labor Is not so unintelligent or bemused that any arguments can obscure the simple Influence, such freedom of contract and such workers possessed such power, such influence, such freedom of contract and such Incomes u they have today in the industrial life of America. The United States is, as in the past, the promised land of millions. Nowhere on the globe are men so tree, so equal before the law, so prosperous as here. What has communism to offer? It cannot hold out as an Inducement the status of labor In Russia, in China, in Easters and Southeastern Europe. In vast regions of the old World and of Asia, men of the proletariat were promised power over other classes and castes, but found that the Supreme authority and unadulterated dictatorship had fal- les Into the hands of a small group of ambitious and ruthless men, or Into the grasp of a single Individual. The class struggle as Marx conceived it is a poisonous doctrine which could end in the ruin of the Republic, whose Constitution is the guarantee of "life, liberty and the persuit of happiness." It is, In fact, folly to even suggest that labor might succumb to the blandishments of the common enemy ol free men around the world. The American system is its own best answer to all of the arguments of communism, which have brought unexampled wealth, power, Influence, liberty and Justice to men within the fold—Lexington Herald- Leader. Discrimination in the North One who believeed Northern propaganda on the subject might think discrimination against the Negro race is restricted to the Southern states, which long have had legal segregation. But the North has its segregation, too. It Is unofficial segregation, but none the less real. A hotel at Haverhill, Mass., just the other day, for example, refused to accept a revservation for a Negro faculty member of Drew University who was one of the scheduled speakers at a state Baptist convention. True, after the reservations of othcv speakers were canceled in protest, the hotel owner apologized and offered to house the entire group, of race, "whether other guests liked it or not." But the original refusal niid the "whether other guests liked It or not' (ell the true story- There la H vast amount of hypocrisy In this "racial equality" campaign that is being waged against the South.—Chatanooga News-Free press.

Tossing Peoples Capitalism' Phrase in Communists' Direction WASHINGTON —(NEA)—A campaign to* use "People's Capitalism" as a new name for the American economic system in its fight against communism has been launched here. It ' was formally unveiled b>" Theodore S. Repplier, president of the public service Advertising Council of America at a meeting of the National Conference of Business Paper Editors. The idea behind this new crusade is that the simple word "capitalism" has come urder bad repute abroad. It is the number one target of the Commies in all their propaganda. In Europe, capitalism is the name given to the feudalistic cartel and monopoly system. In Africa and Asia, capitalism has become synonymous with colo r i- aiism — the exploiter of backward countries. Trying to call modern capitalism the American way of life, free enterprise, the profit system, antitrust economics or consumerism has not gone over. The Commie line is still that "decadent Wall Street capitalism" is the enemy and will ultimately be defeated. i Stuart Peabody, vice president of the Borrien Co. and chairman ofj the Advertising Council, is given \ credit by Repplier with first sug-! gesting the name, "People'* Capitalism." His thought was simply to liberate a word which the Communists themselves had captured and mistreated. What he had in mind was the frequent Commie use of other captured words, such as people's democracies, People's Republic of China, etc. Repplier grabbed the Idea and began to try it out. Early this year the Ad Council president went around the world on an Elsenhower Fellowship grant to study U.S. Information Agency and Voice of \merica program effectiveness. Repplier found one of the handicaps was lack of an adequate explanation of the American economic system for foreign working people. When he returned to America he sold the Ad Council on preparing a visual presentation which could be sent abroad to explain "People's Capitalism." This exhibit is now practically completed. Plans are being made to give It a Washington preview before shipping it overseas. In brief, the exhibit begins with an American house of 1775 In which a colonist is shown hand forging nails at the rate of six an hour. By progressive steps, the] rise of the American standard of living Is shown. The next-to-the-last exhibit Is an American automatic machine mak ing nail* at the rate of thousands an hour. Little bags of nails are to be given away as souvenirs in nail hungry countries. The final exhibit Is an American middle-class, mass-produced house with all modern conveniences, for open inspection. Legends throughout the exhibit and leaflets to be handed to visitors will explain what "People's Capitalism" Is. They will emphasize American individualism, its opportunity, freedom of labor, freedom to own property, freedom to engage In business, freedom to own a share of American industrial wealth through stock holdings and to receive a share of the profits. "Every time the Soviet propaganda machine thunders ajairisi capitalism," said Repplier in presenting his "People's Capitalism' idea to the business paper editors ; "our obvious cue IB to thunder back that a completely new kind o capitalism has come about which is neither colonial nor feudallstic Further, that this dynamic, new capitalism is already doing things for its people that under communism have remained empty promises for 35 years." the Doctor Says — By EDWIN P. JORDAN, M.D. Written for NEA Service tic about this operation and one man wrote me not long ago thai he was so pleased he wanted to tel' the whole world about it. He said, "I suffered plenty with them but at the age of 38 had them removed. No one." he said, "should suffer with bunions the way I did.'' Certainly the most Importan cause of a bunion is the wearing oi shoes which are too short or too pointed, although there is also a family tendency 1 to this condition It is correct to conclude thai bunions are rare among those who are careful to wear only carefully fitted shoes. A STUDENT, whose dog came to school with him, was called to the president's office because the dog had bitten the dean. The student explained that the dean came upon the dog suddenly and surprised him. "But why," asked the president, "did lie bite five other people?" "Oh, that," said the student: "he was Bunions are both common and painful.

LITTLE LIZ • JACOBY ON BRIDGE Errors Better Than 3 Acei By OSWALD JACOBT Written for NBA Service Today's hand wasn't easy to defend properly, but the defenders had to make at least three mistakes for South to fulfill his contract.

He led a fourth round of clubs, hoping th« ruff would do his partner some good. This was fatal.
