Town Prefers Wild Animals To Trailer-Dwell ing Vets Two Air Force sergeants were transferred from Mitche] Field, N. Y., to Chanute Field, 111., this week. There i.< no news in that, except that there is a atory behind their move, an almost incredible story. We hope it is unique to the suburban New York community of llassapeqim. These two sergeants risked their lives ,in the war—one as a ferry pilot, the > • other as a combat pilot over Italy and Germany. As members of the regular • • Air Force they are prepared to risk their lives again. But they weren't heroes to some Massapetjua citizens. They were bums—because they lived in trailers. . Both men were married and both had children. There were no complaints about their conduct. The children were bright and well-behaved. The parents •were good citizens, members of ths , ' P.-T. A. and active in school affairs. It was simply that they lived in / trailers. They lived t n them not from choice, but because there was no housing ; . available at Mitchel Field, or at Massa;.;, pequa, or at any other town nearby. Mitchel Field authorities had ask if they might park on an old unrestricted trailer ; camp site where, a few years ago, Frank • Buck had a wild animal camp. | The aiassaperuia Civic Association hadn't objected to the wild animals. But a few of its members raised an awful fuss over human beings living on the same spot. Some of them spread the word that the sergeants' children were "undesirables" and a "menace" to their own darlings. Those townspeople were a small minority. But the humiliation they caused the flyers and their families was understandably great. So the sergeants applied for a transfer. We would guess that some of these snobbish Massapoquans were probably M-etty sentimental and effusive about "our boys" during the war, just us long as they were off protecting Massapcqua and other American towns at a safe distance. But, when two of them arrived in the little community, and, tlmiogli no fault of their own, offended these solid citizens' eyes and perhaps threatened the value of their real estate it was another matter. We wonder if the same sort of thinking might help explain Congress' slowness, in passing an adequate housing bill. Some congressmen were prety sentimental and effusive about "our boys," too. But it was also another matter when their acute need of housing threatened the boom-time profits of the real estate associations. Thus it has seemed that Congress is more anxious now to guar- " «ntee mortgages of those associations ,than to guarantee the construction of houses within reach of a sergeant's pay. We hope a few members of Congress get around to reading the story of th« two sergeants. \Ve hope they will g i\- ft •am* MTHXU thought to other past and present members of the armed forces •who are less humiliated, but no better housed. If the story'could help stir them to a lonjf-awaited action, then perhaps the embarrassment that the sergeants' families suffered was not without purpose. Hot Haunting Enough Word has gone out that, from now on, President Truman's speeches will be more informal, off-the-cuff variety, j'atlier than the rather cut-and-dried addresses prepared for him in the past. Mr. Truman's advisers seem to have concluded that the recent efforts of his ghost writers have been increasingly notable for a departed spirit. VIEWS OF OTHERS To the Bitter End The country breathed easier Monday night when It was announced that the railroad strike had been called off. For more than a week It had lived In apprehension of Ihe calamitous effect of inch a strike. Seizure of the roads, followed by a court order, brought an eight-day breathing spell. A hearing before Judge Goldsborough will be held May 18, to decide whether the restraining order should be extended. The union leaders played out their time lo the bitter end. In order to stop the strike, it was necessary to exhume an unrepeiled law of World War I days, giving the Government power over transportation in war emergencies. This la hardly an Ideal remedy, nor Is It Ideal for the roads to b« turned over to the Army. But it was the only device In the Government's hands. Even then, th» union leader* held out They waited until a judicial nillnr could be added to the executive action. Public opinion, w« believe, will have no dlf- 1 ficulty In eryjUlllzing on thi* issue. The three brotherhoods have had their day In courU-and it was a long one. They refused to accept the recommendation of the President's fact-finding board, although'19 other railroad unions had done *o. They remained »o stubborn during a period of mediation that It VKS never possible even to get them to sit down at a table with the operators. Filially, the whole question was relerred to ihe White House, and for three days presidential assistant John Steelman wrestled with the problem —In vain. Meanwhile, the nation was subjected to a war of nerves. An embargo wa* placed upon perishable goods. Commerce and industry throughout the country prepared to slow up or halt entirely. Here surely is a classic example of union, irresponsibility, of the misuse of power, of the extension ol power into license, it may very well produce harsh restrictive legislation. It may subject the railroad unions to the provisions of the Taft-Harlley law. which they do not like and from which they were specifically exempted. It will cause men like senator Ball to call for the breaking of the monopoly hold of national unions on vital industries. The three brotherhoods have gained nothing- Instead, they hav e done « profound disservice to the whole nation. -ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH. Insulting the Customer Some of the arguments used by the butter forces In trying to keep the discriminatory taxes on margarine arc anything but flattering to the consumers of their product. First It is urged that butter must have a monopoly on the use of yellow coloring in order to protect shoppers from defrauding themselves by picking up a package ol oleomargarine Instead Since most butter Bs well as margarine now Is sold in packages, the color of the £pres d itself Is R rather belated warning to the illiterate. One dairy stat c congressman, however, proposes to solve this by letting the margarine manufacturers use color but requiring them to pack their product in a circular or triangular instead of a square container. Here, again, the Implication is that butter purchWrs either are not sufllclcmiv educated or sufficiently mtcrcsted to read We wonder If th c butter Interests have given adequate consideration lo retaining (he good will o: their customers in their efforts to prevent or penalize a free choice by the buyer from the grocery store freezers, could it be that they underestimate the willing,,^, of the mimy m||Uon5 w , w prefer butter lo distinguish it from margarine by rending the wrapper? —CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR.

They were Hie Conductors, the Firemen and the Switchmen. But two others held out They were Whitney's Trainmen and Johnston's Engineers. They caused the two-day strike of 1916 They went over the heads of the fact-finding board and appealed to The five ops at first didn't ask tor «_ raise. Instead they asked for timiiges In some 40 rules. Heads of the ops persuaded their members they had more to gain from rule changes. When the non-ops got their is 1 ..; cents, however, the op heads were forced by their brotherhoods to ask for a second round raise. So, on Oct. 1, they demanded 30 per cent more, with a 53 a day minimum raise. Three Ops Copy Successful '46 Pattern Tn November. Whitney for the Trainmen and Fraser for the Conductors, accepted this offer. The three othere--Robertson for the Firemen, Johnston for the Engineers and Glover for the Switchmen decided to threaten a strike. In this they were exactly following thc Whitney-Johnston pattern of 1046 President Truman appointed a | board to investigate, last January. The board reported in March. It said. In effect, that it could not upset established wage differentials in the railroad industry by giving or-.a craft more than another, particularly since firemen were rivals of engineers, and trainmen of switchmen. It awarded the same 15VI cents, retroactive to last Nov. I. The three holdouts refused to accept this finding. One ol the reasons they give was that this was «>«• 1948 and that they should have something more, in the nature of a third-round increase. The board said no to that, on the ground that, this was only a remnant of the sec: ond round that it was deciding upon. So the three holdouts issued their call for a strike on May II Fven with this settled, it won't be the end of the argument. The 16 non-ops have already filed their third round demands. All they want is 48 hours pay for 40 hours work, plus 25 cents an hour more and adjustments in overtime rates. Negotiations on those demands have already begun. So the bright future thnt opens ahead is that all this monkey business wll have to be gone through again. Culbertson System for Dealing With Russians Given Congress THI By Harman W.
