Solons Fight 'Commies'; Let Foreign Fires Rage % CHairman Leo Allen of the Housa Rules Committee, who has kept the, military training bil] on ice for nearly ten months, isn't going to be hurried on a draft bill either. "It doesn't ' matter •whether the bill gets out this week or n«jrt," said tht man who decides what bills shall come before the House, and when. "We want to hear all th« witness- M." Thi eommitt«« usually finishes Jti hearing* in one lilting. But Chairman Allen doesn't like either UMT qr the draft, and makes no bones about it. So debate on 'the draft bill may not start before Congregg adjounu for the political conventions. An for UMT, ,jt may never get out of committee. But Chairman Allen put no hurdles in the way of the Mundt-Nixon Bill to expose and control communism in America. That one was rushed through the House at head-long speed, with no modi- tying amendments and, as important legislation goes, precious little debate. Now these three bills were inspired by th« same basic situation— the threat nsMch communism offers this nation's Mfety.- But the House, and its Rules Committee in particular, has taken them up m an order which betrays a dangerous near-sightedness. The Mundt-Nixon bill is excellent in intent. But it deals with a tricky subject made up of intangibles as well as tangibles. As it stands, there is a question of whether it could be interpreted to penalize thought as we u aa action And if merely sympathy for communism were to be declared illega], then we should indeed be embarking on a dangerous course. This piece o f legislation deserves calm, thorough, thoughtful debate. Instead it was considered in speed and anger.

And that •trensrth will not be achieved simply by voting: funds for more airplanes and carriers. More equipmeht requires more trained men, and we don't have them in uniform today. But Chairman Allen (Joes not like the idea of using men as well as machines for national defense. So military training and military service are sidetracked while the Mundt-Nixon Express goes roaring by. (ARK.) COURIER NEW* A Forgotten Suggestion ' The Ford Motor Co. asked its workers to take a pay cut, and the workers' union countered with an offer to withdraw its wage demands if Ford would take the lead in.a national rollback of prices. All of which reminds us of the sensible and' apparently forgotten suggestion of AFL President Green, a few months ago, that labor give more work for more pay. Production still seems the best anti- inflation weapon, short of controls. A 44-hour work week would cause no hardship comparable to the hardships of continuing; high living costs. But Mr. Green seems to be a voice that cried once in the wilderness and, getting no response, has kept silent since. Road Tour for the Balcony Scene President Truman would like to see every American embassy in the world housed in a replica of the White House. That back-porch controversy gives promise of assuming global proportions. VIEWS OF OTHERS The Law and Mr. Lewis The »lart of negotiations for a new contract has given John L. Lewl§ «n opportunity lo resort to familiar maneuvers. H« walked out frorri the conference room on Wednesday with rumblings and gesture* which have pretty much lost the dramatic effect. Mr. Lewl«' complaint aealn.t th* aperators that they are not entitled to ie»t th* prejldent of the Southern Producer* Aisoclatlon, h based at best upon a narrow technicality, and would seem to be in clear contradiction of the Taft-Hartley Law. This makes it an unfair labor practice for a union to restrain or coerce an employer In the choice of representatives for collective bargaining. The miner*' contract expire* June 30. There i* still time, ai Mr. Lewi* hu insisted, to undertake constructive negotiations and arrive at acceptable terms. But at present the conference Is at a halt. According to Utr. Lewis, it will not be resumed while Joseph B. Moody participate, as 'head of the Southern Producers Association; to exclude Mr. Moody would be to acknowledge the power of the miners' chief to dldale who shall bargain for the operators. Escape from the deadlock may conceivably come through etlorls of the Federal Mediation and Conciliate Board. Beyond that lies a court order compelling the union to deal with all operator groups that wish to bargain. One Injunction is already In effect against a mine strike; another would certainly be invoked if the June 30 deadline being pawed, tl;e miners should refuse to work without a contract. If there i* an explanation for Mr. Lewis' conduct, apart from his usual thirst for domination, it would seem U) be a desire to call forth such a tangle of court orders as to confuse the public and perhaps discredit the laws. ii this ia his aim he can be sure of defeat. The public, which it anxious to see fair play and ready (o p*y the price of reasonable concessions to Ihe miners, Is not ready to endure a flagrant abuse of power It will stand back of every necessary move under-' take,, by the Government, and will make sure that Mr. Lewis, ilk, every other citizen, Is subject to the laws of the land NEW YORK HERALD-TRIBUNE.
