So all of us might well resolve to keep in check the emotions that politics may arouse in the coming months. If the Wallaceites can be beaten and egged and fired from their jobs this early there is real danger that, unless their opponents use their heads, incidents might occur which not only could cause physical injury but also affect our leadership in (he family of nations as the world's greatest democracy. Might Be Worth a Try The President has offered Congress n $27,323,000 bargain. He wants that sum to hire 10,000 more tax-enforcement officers and raise the pay of others in the interest of better collections. The Treasury claims thai we lose a billion dollars a year through lax evasion. If this is true, something- surely should be done, especially with the present tax cut and high defense expenditures looming ahead. The President's offer may not be A guaranteed bargain. But if there is a chance to recover that billion for.about one-fortieth of the amount, it would seem to be worth the gamble. VIEWS OF OTHERS ••»•*»•••»••*•»•••»••••«••«**«*•«• Murder in Greece Anti-Wallace Violence Bad, Calls Attention to Him The New York opening of "The Iron "Curtain" got some of the best anci least expensive publicity in the recent history of motion picture exploitation. Communists arid their sympathizers picketed the theater and engaged in a street fight with Catholic war veterans. A lot of interest was aroused, and a lot more people will probably want to see the picture . than would otherwise be the case. All this was for free. And no doubt, 20th Century-Fox is grudgingly grate- ( ful to the Reds for forgetting that one can benefit something he opposes by calling attention to it. But the comrades aren't the only ones afflicted with this • short-sightedness. There have been some t recent examples of the same affliction .- among apparently loyal and well-intentioned Americans. These examples have centered around Henry Wallace and his third-party movement. Mr. Wallace has been denied hotel accommodations and meeting halls He was the target of fcg g s i n his home slate of Iowa. Some of his followers took a beating in Indiana. And so on. Such behavior calls attention to .Mr Wallace and his cause, of cours* and creates some sympathy even a ' mo ,ig those ivho oppose his ideas strongly The egg- and fist-throwing may be traced to frustration among people whose muscles work better than their minds. But the • calculated, non-violent actions are an affront to the very principles that the perpetrators of those actions seem to inncy they are protecting. There is no loyalty to American traditions in denying the rights of free speech and peaceful assembly to the : tlnrd-partyites. Such denials are for the Soviet government, which Mr. Wallace . frequently defends in unflattering com- panson to our own. ' Let Mr. Wallace accuse and disparage and ?T S - L0t him lalk hiraself »' and out of corners, and allow himself to be pushed along with the twisting paths of Co™,., pohcy. But let him talk. If the fantasies and inconsistencies of h 5 public pronouncements cannot be ev- P'ocled by Sane and reasonable arjru- ' m ^- then no eggs or blows or lockouts can demolish them. We are only j n the early spring of the el ection season .After the conven- tioiw have P ,cked their candidates and i. the campaign gets in full swing we all know that blood wil. run hot and Ce wil run high. The candidates' oratorv -eluding Mr. Wa.lace's, wil, grow ™ e extravagant. This always happens. And with a «JW.t. in the JMd who can fjnda nothing to admire in American policy an d . w muck to apologiM lor « Rwigia ,. ^ American authorities In Grrcce hid better Uk» more than a routine interest in the Investigation of tlie death of George Polk. The body of thia Columbia Broadcasting System correspondent was found in Salonika Bay, bound »nd with a bullet hole In Die bnck of Ills head. After maintaining secrecy (or some time about the discovery, the Greek iwlice said that they suspjcted foul play by the Communists Perhaps that Is the correct explanation of Folk's death, but It is not the obvious one. Alter all, he was trying to Interview the Communist leader. Gen. Marlcos Vlfiades. It is not too plausible that he should have b««n killed by those whose story he was trying to present. The current outbreak of police terrorism in Greece, and the political interest of the Greek authorities in Folk's Journalistic venture, are reason enough for a careful check on their Investigation nnd any additional explanations forthcoming Irom them. Further, it is absolutely necessary that the American authorities take the strongest pcsslble measures to safeguard the unhampered flow of news from troubled countries which are dependent on American aid. Dwlght orlswoW, the American aid administrator in Athens, has been all too quick in the past to dip his brush into th e whitewash bucket. Such glossin B s over, however, tend to raise doubts here at home about the state ol affairs in Greece, Instead of coming as reassurances. Mr. Polk's death is. as the Greek government fears, an international incident. —St. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH. Farm Program President Truman has sent a message to Congress on long-range agricultural legislation The Wen originated with Secretary of Agriculture Anderson, who has told friends Hint such a plea to Congress would put the Republican* "on the spot." However, his suggestions aren't greatly different from the ideas which Congress has been shaping into a long-range farm program. He bears down harrier on the surplus problcm-when it develops The President explicitly wants surpluses to be used for improving th 0 living standards of our people, notably by continuing school lunelies That is calculated to make a hit with city as well ns farm, votes. In this, and some other re- spccls, the President's recommendations would make the farmer a permanent warn or the city government m ore riefimtely than the congressional plan would. He urges expansion or the soil conservation program, indicating that he still thinks congrtss should provide the 300 million dollars fo r tills work, which he asked In his budget message congress has been looking favorably so far on cutting that figure to 250 million. Certainly, soil conservation, if the money is spent judiciously, 1 6 a matter of high Importance. No doubt, there's a good <(,,„, of ,,„__ both the President's and the Congressional st _ nds on farm aid. One thing seems pretty certain- a farm program, and t fairly HlKn} ontp , continued.

Under Talt's system of operation, nobody has been permitted to da "nything while he was out of town. And he has been out of town frequently, campaigning. Politics before business, every time. The Taft Committee report on the President's economic message to Congress was due last Feb. 15. It isn't in 'sight even yet. But maybe that's just as well. Last summer. Sen.

That might have been all right in March, but it's pretty late to get started no* in all but the northern tier of states "To mitigate the effect of'high prices," tiie committee recommends more farmers' markets should be' established, and consumers should shop more intelligently and use f"I? 5 "^- I. 1 *" 1 * Anything about isn't Oh yes.

Ralph Flanders of Vermont, filed a report, aiso pretty The mid-wesiern group, under Sen. Joe Bal lof Minnesota, hasn't been heard from. But the full committee has, at long last, gotten around to making a final report of last summer's work. And It is not only too late, but too little. Most of the recommendations are lifted from the western subcommittee report. But the guts of this Watkins report—such as the recom- . What they proiably mean here is lipstick and whisky. There are no excise taxe,? on meat, potatoes, spinach, nor even applesauce. For the inflationary danger committee has another dandy'sug- gestion. It-is to give the matter more stuay. Then if things get any worse ^something might be done .about, goocl. | them. The committee doesn't say imrt. r when _ They must mean ne ^ Certainly no politician is going to have any time to save the country until after election. There lire other things the committee recommends putting off. One is.the matter of doing something about, controls over scarce items. In one place the report says there should be allocations of scarce raw materials ior consumer goods. The committee also recommends making more money available to educate people on meal planning. What this seems to imply is that there should be more of this stuff like the r?cent fiasco of sending government cook books to th-> Pennsylvania Dut:h. and telling them to eat more cabbage. Savings Bonds, Not Cash, for Tax Cuts As for what to do with the tax cuts you're now beginning t o eiijov the committee says you shouldn't have these. Instead the government should give them to you in the form of savings bonds, cashable only when the danger of in- llation is past. 3"or management and labor, the . _. committee offers some startling for[advicp. It it that management should reduce prices and labor adopt reasonable wage attitudes Why hasn't somebody thought of this before?
