Cutters Should Be Warned If Budget Is Pared to Limit Congress is accustomed to assuming that the Executive branch, as a matter of course, pads its budget requests by at leaat 10 per cent. Tlife lawmakers therefore feel safe in cutting such requests a like amount or more, figuring usually that they thus are closer to actual need. That kind of reasoning- explains why some on Capitol Hill greeted President Eisenhower's projection of nn $8.5 billion budget trimming with the declara- _tion, "This is just the beginning." Yet if Congress now proceeds to whack further big slices from proposed outlays for, particularly, defense and foreign aid, there may be serious risk io national security. This is why: Few Washington observers' believe so big a sum as ?8.5 billion can be lopped off the budget without cutting muscle as well as fat out of our defenses and adversely affecting cooperation with our friends abroad. If that is so, then the decision to do without these funds represents a calculated risk on the President's part that the Soviet Union will not make major war in the immediate years ahead. Originally, our military leaders figured Russia ready for atomic warfare in 1954, and we were shaping our defenses toward that deadline. But the stretch-out envisaged by Mr. Eisenhower — and underscored by recent NATO decisions in Paris — indicates we no longer have eyes fixed on that target date. Since the President is not now disputing the guesses on Soviet atomic development, we cannot conclude the change of heart is based on new intelligence from Russia. In the hard calculating about our security, the "peace" offensive is of course heavily discounted. Consequently, we can only surmise that the budget cuts have been proposed in spite of the Soviet buildup in atomic weapons. And therein lies the reason for saying the President is taking a calculated risk the Kremlin won't launch an attack upon us. With a slimmer arms budget for both ourselves and our friends, we and they would not he well prepared for an all-out atomic assault in the near future. If Congress should magnify.,, the risk by cutting further on the assumption it is still slicing fat, it might amount, to the kind of open invitation we gave Moscow when we shrugged our shoulders over Korea in early 1950. Inasmuch as the President has apparently pared the budget close to t h e safety line, he should make this abund- ' untly plain to all responsibl* leaden on the Hill. Otherwise the nir will »oon be thick with flailing knives, hatchets and hacksaws. Srassen Restores Principle To many politicians, sticking to principle is a thing that varies with the seasons. The adhesive substance seems to get a little thin and dry in campaign years. At many levels of public office this doesn't hurt too much, and men who have sloughed off their principles for a spell go on getting elected and elected. With the presidency, however, you can carry this only so far. Harold Stassen found that out in 1948. Believing himself close to the GOP nomination, he tried to be more and more things to more and more men. That finished him. And his re-entry into the lists in 1952 saw him reduced to pitiful stature. Now the word comes from Washing- Ion that Slasscn, as head of Mutual Security, is rebuilding his reputation. He has grounded himself well in his job a n d is performing excellently. He is earning wide praise. Ambition may still reside in Stasscn's breast. Perhaps he has learned by now that it cannot be served by casting principle to the four winds. Views of Others No Depression! For a long time we used to think the late J. Stalin Was stupid. The thing for him to do, HI we sixed it up, was to make noises like peace, call his dogs off, and knock the propa out of the cold war in Europe and the hot wars In Asia. This would do two major things: It would ease up on the Soviet war economy ami result in more production of consumer goods. » In other words, more butter and less Runs. ThU would make Old Joe popular with the people. It would halt defense spending In the U.S. and scarp some Americans Into thinking a depression was just, around the corner, But Old Jon never got thr, idea. Now he haa passed to Ills reward nnd his successor ha* apparently come to the same conclusion R Jot Of Us had all nlong. So WP see Americans wined and dined in Moscow. We see the Big Four generals getting together In Germany. We see another truce of sorts In Korea, Unfortunately, we also nee soma Americana rrylng "depression." These gloom chasera think they have It all figured ouf, — restricted defense production, less government spending, payroll cut-offs, (nlllnK prices, credit, restrictions, less installment buying nnd bingo — n bust. Some Democrats even want a. depression. Tt mnde a wonderful campaign Is.vie during the Republican-businessman administration. The fact Is that most of the nation's economists simply do not see a depression. The economy IK sound and if private enterprise is given more freedom, It Is bound to be sounder. For n long time, the economy was bolstered by government spending. And In 1039 when an- nl.hor big bust was on the way, the war In Europe helped save us. But the past-war demand for consumer goods nnd the resultant stepped production helped make this artificial prosperity a sound one. It Is still pound enough, the experts say, to withstand a little deflation. The important thing, however, is thia — by thinking depression, a mood may easily be created which could help bring on a depression. And thus, a victory for the Russians without firing A shot.. What we need Is positive thinking, faith in our leaders and in our free enterprise system. —Klngsport (Tenn,) News. Gadget For Children Pnrouls ami children aren't. gettlnB along together so well as they did in the past. That seems to be the opinion of Dr. Sldonle Qrucnbcrg. intcrnatinnnlly famous consultant on retiring children. Dr. Oruenberg, a recent visitor to Atlanta, says there are many reasons why children and parents are drifting apart, why the American home is less sturdy Lhnn it used to be. ; One reason, she says, Is that modern mothers and children "have gadgets in the home Instead of companionship." Maybe they do have gadgets, lots of them, but there Is one they lack. It might be the answer to the whole problem, that admirable gadget kept handy by parents of an older generation. It was the peach switch, limber and keen, per- fe.ct for touching good manners, for quieting n squalling child. —Atlanta Journal. SO THEY SAY It's taking far more time th«n I had realized.

MIA t."k.. f-c Peter ft/son's Washington Column — Ikes Domestic Aims Sketchy, But End of Controls Is Top Feat WASHINGTON —(NEA>— The greatest accomplishment of the Eisenhower administration on the domestic front In Us first 100 days In office has been removal of till price and wage controls. The timing on this move wns j\i*t right. Meat prices were ready below cell- Ings. Other lood prices normally drop In the Peter Edson spring. On the Industrial front, supplies if materials hnd been built up to meet Increased demands of the {orenn war. The national economy bad been adjusted to the new, igher productive level. On the wage front, the more roubtesome Industrial disputes had een settled. So everything was ight for lifting the lid. Contrary n some dire predictions, there ,nve been no ill effects—yet. Rent 'controls have been sched- letl to end July 31. At the turn f the first 100 days the Congress •as atlll in a sweat over contlnu- ig stnnd-by controls for use In use a new InfhiUomiry emergency •ises. The administration still has to leet Us first test on handling n lajor labor dispute. That may oine in the steel industry. Both AFL and CIO have nn- ounced their intent to seek new •age Increases as contracts come p for renewal. In the case of the TO, this mny be extended to In- lude demands for a guaranteed nnual wage. Stabilization of living costs might erve to cut the ground from under ny such demands. If it does, the uslness leaders who have Riven uch strong support to the Republf- an administration can consider it victory. But aside from this achievement f removing economic controls, the Eisenhower ndministration In its first 100 days has bnrcly mnde n beginning nt sketching in the outline of its domestic program. Among the starts that have been made, these stand ovit jiromlncnlIv: lludfjrl f'uts Are First on Program A genuine effort to cut government expense and balance the bud- ; Ret. President Eisenhower estim- | atcs the Truman-prepared budget of 72 billion, nine-hundred million dollars in new funds requested for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1954, can be cut by 8'/i billion dollars. But this is not a final figure because the budget revision has not been completed. The President say& flatly that the cash or ] spending budget for next year cnnnot possibly be balanced, even with this cut. A first feeler at deflation through refinancing the national debt on a long-term basis. This has , been dpne through the successful experiment of a billion-dollar, 3'/4 per cent bond issue. Two cautious moves toward a new farm policy. Secretary of Agriculture Ezra Taft Benson refused to support meat prices when they started skidding. But he continued dairy supports for a year to give that induslry time io work out a new policy of its own. Six federal government reorganization plans. Making a cabinet- rank Department of Health, Education and Welfare out of the Federal Security Agency and reorganization of Department of Agriculture are along lines outlined by previous administrations. Plan No. 3 combined Office of Defense Mobilization and National Security Resources Board. Reorganization' of Justice, State and Defense Departments are on the, fire, Near completion of top staff appointments. The Elsenhower administration hns been slow in this recruitment. The effort has been complicated by a number of fumbles in firing career civil servants to make way for Republican blood and brains. Revised personnel policies to re* duce government employment. Killing Office of Price Stabilization and Wage Stnbilizaton Board returned SI,500.000 to the Treasury. Budget Drcctor Joseph M. Dodge ordered no new hiring after Feb. 3. Defense Secretary C. E. Wilson ordered a 39.000 personnel cut by the end of May. A new loyalty and security program has been announced, intended to weed subversives nnd criminals from government. But it will take some months to put into effect nnd test fully. Ike Leans on Own Study Groups There are civilian commissions, committees and study groups hatching plans all over Washington. President Elsenhower seems to depend on them heavily. Among his creations are a reorganization committee, a temporary farm advisory commission, National Security Council advisers, psychological warfare advisory committee, a commission to. survey natural resources and another on foreign trade. The President has also asked Congress to authorize a conimis slon to study federal-state relationships. Departmentally, there arc committees to study Defense Department reorganization and to ve- survey the Bureau of Standards. A Department of Labor advisory committee, supposed to shape new labor policy for the administration, broke up In confusion on Its first meeting and has been abandoned. But it will take months for alt the other and still more new study clubs to make their reports and get the Eisenhower administration's policies in shape to identify as a definite program. In the meantime, the number- one riddle of the new administration is how far it will go in carrying out Republican campaign promises and campaign hopes to get the government out of business, end the so-called trend towards socialism and put the country back on the road towards an economy dedicated to, and dominated by, the free enterprise system. The decision to liquidate the Reconstruction Finance Corporation and sell the government-built and government-owned synthetic rubber plants are first steps in'this direction. Returning the tidelanda from federal to state government control is another. But how far will this go? And will it become what critics of the administration now call a gigantic give-away of the public domain? Only the answers to these questions in due time will disclose the real nature of the Eisenhower domestic program. There are signs now that in settling these policies, sharp differences between President Eisenhower's thinking and the opinions of a majority of the congressmen will have to be resolved.

D The ze;il with which early Chris- dans in various places treasured the letters that St. Pnul wrote to them Is evident in the way In which the New Testament Epistles have been preserved for us. We even have notes concerning their transmission and the places from which they were sent. Conslderins all that has been lost of that ancient world, it Is little .short of a miracle that we should have these letters. They were written so lonR aRo by an unknown Jew Io Rrotips of Christians who, in that vast pnsan world, must have seemed unimportant to their contemporaries. YeL how Important and powerful hi their prowth and Influence upon the world, even upon that Roman \vorlri, these croups of Christians became! And what an immense In^ Iluence the Epistles of Paul, which ivrre originally letters of friendly Chrlslian counsel to hl.s fellow- Christiana, have had,upon world history! I have remarked upon the care and accuracy with which tlyi Pau- lint hnvc been preserved. The only doubt, concern! th« Epistle to the Hebrews. Not concerning the Epistle itself, but only the question whether Paul was Its author. In my copy of the King James Bible that is at hand as I write, its title reads: "The Epistle of Paul the Apostle to the Hebrews." But Irom early days In the church, while the Epistle was* accepted as genuine, doubt was expressed regarding Its authorship and one eminent leader in the early church said that only God knew who wrote it. I am not a scholar, though 1 once took a prize for New Testament Greek, but I believe that it is the prevailing opinion among Biblical scholars today that the Epistle to the Hebrews was not among those tHftt Paul wrote. The Epistles in our New Testament are not, in the order in which Paul wrote them. The earliest seem to have been I and II Thesalonlans. My Kins James Version says they were written from Athens, but nt least two Bible dictionaries say they were written from Corinth. Paul spent considerable periods of time at Ephe.Mis and Corinth, and Ihcse cities, with Philtppi «nd AUicns,! were so closely related to Paul's journeys that he might Well have written from any one of them. We are on surer ground when we consider the so-called "Epistles of the Imprisonment," Ephesians. Co- lossians, Philemon and Phtllppians, which he wrote during the two years he was a prisoner In Rome, even though In the comparative freedom of his own house (Acts 28:30). Later Epistles were also apparently written from Rome during & second Imprisonment. • JACOBY ON BRIDGE Here's a Trick Worth Trying By OSWALD JACOBY Written for NBA Service One of the simplest ways to make a trick bloom In the desert Is to mislocate the high cards for the declarer. East "found a way to do this In today's hand. South won the opening upade lend with the ace nnd led a low club towards dummy's king. It was at thla moment that East made the key play of the defense.

So now we'll be seeing unnatural sets. Tony Dexter, who played Valentino, find his estranged wife have agreed on a divorce. His next mate may be pretty Lucy Lloyd, the girl he's been dating. The movie Valentino just went to work In "Capt. John Smith, and Pocahontas." the West hand nth«r than in the East hand. East would have taken his ace of clubs at once It dummy had held only a single high club. But as long as dummy had two high clubs, East knew that h« could use his ace to capture the queen later on even i( he refused the king at this point. At the third trick declarer led the ten of hearts from dummy and let it ride for a finesse. West won with the ace of hearts and led another spade, dummy winning with the queen. Now South drew two more rounds oj trump« and led another club from his hand towards dummy's queen. East was able to capture dummy's queen of clubs with the ace, exactly as he had expected. But now West was sure to get a trick NORTH » ¥10953 4> A84 *KQ8 WEST EAST * 10852 *J871 VA42 VQ8 » K 9 5 » J 10 « J *J 87 »A51 SOUTH (D) A AD VKJ87 *Q7i «1094I East-West vul.

At most tables South was able to make ten tricks, and this extra trick was of the greatest Importance In match Doint play. The difference at the other tables was merely that East took the first club trick with his ace. The next time South tackled the clubs, he led the ten of clubs rorn his hand and let it ride for finesse. When this finesse succeeded, declarer was able to limit he loss in clubs to only one trick.
