Political Motives May Be Behind Rail Strike Threat . Once again, as happened two years ago, all the government's railway mediation machinery has been used to no avail. Th« avoidance of a railway strike now rest* -with th« President and Congress, or with the three operating brotherhoods who have called the walkout. Thinking back to tha brief strike of 1946 and its aftermath, one might won- def if a political motive is behind the promised petition in this election year. After the President threatened to seize th« railroads in 1946, A. F. Whitney, president of the Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen, pledged the millions in his union's treasury to help defeat Mr. Truman in 1948. Later Mr. Whitney reversed his field and announced that he would support Mr. Truman. Now comes the threat of another strike. Mr. Whitney's brotherhood is not mixed up in this one. In fact, his trainmen and the conductors' union agreed five months ago to the 15V^-cent-an-hour increase offered by the operators and recommended by the President's fact-finding board. This is somewhat unusual, because the operating brotherhoods have a habit of sticking together in their wage demands. One wonders whether this independence of action will continue if the President takes forceful measures to stop the walkout, or whether Mr. Whitney -will come up with a threat to take himself and his union out of the Democratic camp. Such action could, very well back, fire. As things stand now, the acceptance by two brotherhoods of the terms that three others now object to weakens the latter's case. The suspicion that these three unions were using the threatened strike as a political club to get what they •want might weaken their case even more. They would do well to remember that Mr. Truman's popularity has never beeri greater than when he was standing up boldly to defiant union leaders. And certainly the public not only will approve, but will demand a bold stand by all forces of government in ' averting this strike. Whatever the reason that makes three unions refuse to accept what two others have agreed to, it is not serious enough to justify stopping the country's railroads. Congress set up the unique mediation , machinery for railway labor disputes because the dire consequences of a rail stoppage are apparent. This mediation is under government supervision because the railroads, though privately owned, we not really private enterprises. Or> waters are not allowed to stop running trains, no matter what their grievances or difficulties. And while the law does not forbid the railroad unions to strike, it makes every effort to avoid a walkout. Th« railroad union heada, likt John L. Lewis. h»v« a stranglehold on the nation's economy. But while a coal strike is progressive pw.lysi., . ra j[ »trike brinj» sudden ehaoe. The most drastic measures will not b« too strong to keep the railroads running until thig dispute is settled. BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS End of the Electors? Both the Senate and House Judiciary Committees have approved bills to abolish the Electoral College. And we cannot imagine that one regretful sigh would b« heaved if the coming election were the last in which the electors ostensibly elected the President. The Electoral College is an archaic institution. It gre w out of the debate among the founders of our Constitution over how much direct control the people should have in choosing the President. Direct election of the President has long been an accepted fact. It is only right that it should be a legal actuality as well. Perhaps the next logical step toward more truly democratic processes would be direct primary elections to designate the voters' preference for their party's candidate for President in all our states.

VIEWS OF OTHERS A Common Sense Move Few things have made less sense that the helter-skelter tale of war plants and war goods In the face of a mounting threat o f possible need for them. Acting under instructions set soon after V-J day, the War Assets Administration' has continued to sell war factories and machinery which would be sorely needed In the event of an emergency. In view of the unsettled state of the world, the White House has acted wisely In putting a 30-day freeze onder on all such liquidating operations. Thl« save* the Government more than 16 war plants which were scheduled for immediate surplus sale. It protects large quantities of goods which are needed for security. Thanks to this freeze order, which was announced by John R. Steclman, presidential assistant, the Munitions Board will hive an opportunity to Inventory all "surplus" plants and supplies still in the Government's hands. The board should use this opportunity to mark lor rententlon every item which common sense says would be needed if an emergency developed. It Is certainly less ex- pncsive to carry these plants and goods a while longer than to purchase them all over again. Representative Lyndon Johnson Is the member of Congress who made a one-man fight of stop- Ping these war surplus sales until some order could be brought to It. The Texas Congressman deserves the country's appreciation for an act In the Interest of economy and the national defense. —ST. IX5UIS POST-DISPATCH.
