Or leave her homel House Committee Is Trying To Out-Thomas Mr. Thomas The Thomas Committee's method of doing battle with the Communist menace seems to be contagious in the Hous« of Representatives. At any rate, the House Appropriations Committee has come up with an idea that would do credit — if credit is the world— to the wi-American activities group. The Appropriations Committee, in voting funds for the legislative branch of the government, tacked on a recommendation that no federal funds be paid to union members on the legislative payroll whose union officials had not filed the non-Communist oath that the Taft-Hartley Law requires. The original intent of this oath was , to deny non-complying unions recourse to the National Labor Relations Board. Some union officials doubt the constitutionality of .this provision and, rightly or not, have refused to comply with it. They want a Supreme Court test of the requirement. Among those officials is Philip Murray, president of the CIO and of the steelworkers' union. There can scarcely be any doubt that Mr. Murray is not only a non-Communist but an anti-Com; mumst. Also among thosR officials are : the officers of the International Typo; graphical Union, which has some 1GOO ; members in the Government Printing , Office. The ITU is said to be the Appropriations Committee's specific target. UP to now it has seemed to us that these union officials were unwise in bucking this section of the law. If they were not Communists their defiance seemed pointless. But if the Appropriations Committee can get the House to •Pprove this extension and distortion , of the law, we think they may be wise for 7.

For if the Government Printing Office typographers were fired, the representatives' oratory would no longer enjoy th« brief and dubious immortality of being enshrined in the Congressional Record. We doubt that many congressmen are ready to make that supreme sacrifice. ' BI-YTHEVTU.EjARK.jCpURIRB NEWS VIEWS OF OTHERS membership a s enun ?ate , ,„ ^ ^ ^ ^ -P, as UMW contempt trial.

K it could apply to the JTU A Nation Is Born The Jews themselves resolved the long, wfcV- erlnff debate on Palestine. They proclaimed the Independence of their new state of Israel_ And this was promptly recognized by President Truman In the name of the United Stales. The other powers have little choice but lo follow. Thus an ancient people have created a new nation. For the first time since the Maccabees of 2000 years »go, the Jews are defending their own standard on their own soil. Whatever may lie ahead, this Is for them the greatest of achievements. But the event ilso has been turned to advantage by American diplomacy. The Soviet Union haa been threatening to exploit American hesitation over Palestine by an early 4 recognition of the de facto government o[ David Ben-Gurlon. Washington, however, moved faster ih«n MOKOW. The credit is ours. The advantage ii our«. Surely, it will not be allowed lo slip away_ Conceivably, the International lawyers may »rgu« u to whether the United Nations Assembly resolution calling for an Independent Zionist •late was warrant sufficient lor the historic step taken in Tel Aviv. Recognition, however, makes •uch argument academic. Conceivably, Congress may argue about lifting the embargo on arms for Palestine. Conceivably, other passing difficulties may be raised. Be thit >s It may, the new Jewish stale is born, it exists, and, from all signs, it intends to defend itself by force of arms or any other means. Meantime, all the nullabaDoo about an Arab uprising, the wilder threats that Arab forces would invade Palestine, Immediately after the end of the British mandate, have not materialized. There !»• fighting in Palestine, but the loud-talking King Abdullah of Trans-Jordan, the Egyptians and the other Arab League members appear to be moving with considerable caution. The fact is Haganah has shown that its members are first-class fighting men. Many of them fought under the British flag In the war and are schooled In modern techniques. They took Ihe vital port of Haifa without much of a struggle and they control the strategic coast line between Haifa and Tel Aviv. Apparently iney will soon get reinforcement* as ths interned Jews at Cyprus begin arriving in Palestine. George Fielding Elliot, who has just left Palestine after a pretty thorough tour, says he was convinced two weeks ago that full-scale warfare was inevitable after May 15; now he thinks there is a chance lo avoid it. Notr that the United Stales has given the new atate quick recognition and the other powers are expected lo do so, too, it is possible that the jews by themselves win be able to cope with the Arabs both militarily and diplomatically. Such recognition gives Israel enormous prestige at its inception; it probably will open the way for the 5m- porUtlon of arms and all-Important fighting planes. It is argued that the new Jewish stats will be a catalyzing factor among the Arabs; that it will cause them to unite and prepare for a holy war in the old-time Islamic manner. Ma], Elliot sees no signs of this as yet. nor does he see that the Arabs have much lo fight with. He grants that Abdullah's Arab Legion Is well-trained, but it Is small, and in a Palestinian invasion it will no doubt lose Its very valuable British advisers and technicians. The danger of large-scale trouble, as we sec it, is big-power meddling. Then a contest for Arabian friendship imeantng Arabian oil) might develop, and that could cause another friction point between the Soviet onion and the western world. The promptness of American recognition, however, serves notice on the U.SS.R. that Washington will not tolerate interference without lifting a hand. If recognition offcncis Ihe Arabs, what can they do? They might cancel oil leases and sabotage Installations, but they would by that token forfeit, the millions of American dollars now lining ihe pockets of their leaders. These leaders would hesitate before welcoming soviet intrusion, since they must be familiar with the habit Moscow has of expropriating what it wants. Moscow, too. would hesitate, because an invasion of BriU S h?Amerlcan oil fields would be to court war. Arabs and Jews within Palestine have, to « large extent, gotten along well as co-workers and business associates, u | s i ust possible, lelt to themselves. Palestine Jews and non-Palestine Arabs would find a way to lue as peaceful neighbors Jewish money. hard | ab or. mgenUly and the use of twentieth century methods have brought frult- Mnew »nd prosperity lo what was an and and Povcrt»strickcn land.
