TIME WAS WHEN you couldn't fairly say you were in business as a family man if you didn't operate by a budget. But it seems those days are gone with * the chill wind of depression. Nowadays:most American families are basically' just' too well off to bother with, the,:chafing re-; • sirictidns of the budget strait' jacket. They don't exactly-trust to luck to make efads meet. They keep what is perhaps best called a loose check on expenses. : Surveying this.trend, Time magazine:reports that in 1955 only one family in 200 maintains a day-to-day .operating budget, with its income deliberately segregated , in various envelopes labeled . Kent, .Food, etc. r . . : .'..•'• ;•"• • •;.-•. . '•] FOR ONE THING, they don't have to •rely on such a device to "keep some sort of orderly tab Jon.: theirl, outlays. The changing, habits of the ..U.. S. seller ; of goods have come'to serve as a partial substitute. If you're buying a car, a TV set, household' appliances or furniture 'on the installment plan, the seller provides you with a neat Ijtlle, payment booklet which serves : as an adequate record of your monthly .spending for those items., You don't have to set aside, funds in a "special pile, forj taxes; social security, health, insurance plans, and so on. Unless you're well up in the income brackets' your employer deducts taxes from your pay check. Social, security is automatically Deducted, and he'll take'a slice for'health insurance, too, if you say so. The bank gets into the act with things like Christmas Club savings, where you plunk down a' sum regularly each week to make the holiday .burdens seem a little more pain. less. And lately, retailers of records have been joining the book merchants to help put your cultural purchases on a kind of installment plane, i. e., record-of-the- month clubs. Put all these easily tabulated outlays together, keep a close'eye ori your;charge accounts and your check stubs, and you've got a reasonably ade-. uate picture of where the money is going. TIME FOUND THAT newlyweds are the chief exception to the new order. Often they rely on a budget because they have to skimp and scrape. But soon they, too, discover the magic of credit. Probably this whole trend is .an inevitable accompaniment of our present prosperity. So there's no'use bemoaning it. There's nothing wrong with the new order of things, anyway, provided that both buyers and. sellers .exercise .sensible caution. Americans have got to show sufficient self-restraint, to avoid .overexlending themselves financially.. Arid where they won't show it, the businessman himself ought to act as their budget officer. For • the economy could get into serious trouble if somebody doesn't make it clear that the magic of credit is not limitless. An Open Seaivay THOUGH THE St. Lawrence Seaway will not be completed for another three years, apprehension is already being expressed in some foreign countries that its use will be restricted solely to ships from the United States and Canada. The folly of such discrimination seems to be realized. But other suggestions are being . , made that would greatly favor United. States and Canadian shipping interests. The Dominion Marine Association, representing Canadian shipowners on the Great Lakes, proposes declaring the St. Lawrence-Great Lakes area as domestic waters, thereby • preventing : ships of nations other than the .United States and Canada from carrying freight to and from Canadian and American ports. Ship's sailing under foreign flags have this right .at present since the trade in these waters is construed as normal international traffic, not coastal traffic. Such a regulation might possibly benefit .shipping interests of United States and Canada in the short tun. But the ultimate effect might be an alienation of many foreign countries which might encourage economic repris- -;^ .The United States and Canada are '^;6ound to be,the..

"".' , This attitude reached its climax in the, pledge of .General Eisenhower in the closing days of the campaign .that he would go to Korea. He and his Administration benefited politically from the eventual armistice, though negotiations had started during President Truman's Administration. The warm afterglow of peace in Korea suffused the Eisenhower Administration and assauged our people, even though it was not sustained sufficiently to hold Congress for the Republicans in the 1954 elections.

The .origin of some of them is in the impulse' of former colonial peoples for liberty and self-government in a hurry which they want wrapped up and delivered by the United' Nations. .' .X.,' Where the Democrats were bur-, dened with Asia a few years ago,' the Republican Administration now finds its load broadened and enlarged to include also North Africa, the Middle East, and other troubled areas such as Indonesia and .Ceylon. . ' . The 'revolution against "colonial- Ism," which has been breaking out periodically now here, now there, is flaming across a wide front and as never before in the history of the world. It has.swept into the United Nations where it is our responsibility to help cope with'It,; not only because .we are a member of that body, but as a world leader. WHILE IT could hardly be de : monstrated that .the • spirit of Geneva set off this far-Hung revolution, which has been long in the making, nevertheless it is a con- temporary and simultaneous it-: velopinent that is capitalizing on : :the spirit'pf Geneva., ; : ,:-V.-, ; Russia is taking full advantage of both the spirit of Geneva and 'the anti-colonial revolt..

As for Africa, we have seen how Russia is encouraging the. spirit_ .of colonial rebellion by voting in' favor of bringing the Algerian case before the .United Nations, much .to the annoyance: of the French, "and by getting Czechoslavakia to sell arms to Egypt. The Soviets move with singleness of purpose. THIS 'COUNTRy/ however; r is torn between pur tradition for sup-port of colonial peoples who want to govern themselves and the practical desire to support our allies who are embroiled on difficulties with their colonials. So'our course has been mixed and confused. We backed Britain agaiifst bringing before the U.N. the issue as to whether she or Greece should have Cyprus. More half-heartedly we supported France in her futile effort to keep the Algerian issue off of the U.N. agenda. In the case of another ally, Holland, we ducked the issue by abstaining from voting in the successful effort of 'Indonesia .to get on the ag;nda the issue of her claim to the Netherlands New Guinea.

Douglas Larsen , Dulles, Ike Make Good Diplomatic Pair . WASHINGTON — INEA) — The fact that the first official act of the President on his sickbed had to be the initialing of orders lor State Department Foreign Service officers points lip the unique, quasi- legal position John Foster Dulles suffers as Secretary of State. It was obviously a matter Dulles should be empowered to do, if not someone lower in the State Department. But the legal power to do it is vested solely in the President. And so is a whole range of duties which the Secretary of State.per- forms in the name of the President while running America's relations with foreign countries. This is significant to Dulles' operations during . the coming months of ike's convalescence. The rest of the Cabinet can go on making decisions, signing agreements and running their offices about as before. But any time there is the. slightest suspicion that Dulles is not acting with the full support and knowledge of the President his actions can be challeneged at home or abroad and his work will be cocked grin is his only recognition temporarily halted. of a joke or humorous situation. FORTUNATELY, this isn't likely to happen in practice. Dulles has already established himself as the unquestioned spokesman for-Ike's foreign policy inten- . tions. They obviously see eye'to eye ort .basic international goals ' and the means of achieving them. As a foreign policy making team Ike and Dulles complement each other nicely. Ike has supplied the; ideals, vision and prestige, while Dulles has furnished the know-How of international machinery and the operating techniques. . . : The man whom the world-sees as the face of America's policies • is big and,lumbering, with sharp facial features.

While still in college in 1907 he attended the Second Hague Conference as secretary to his grandfather, .John W. Foster, a" delegate arid former U. S. Secretary of State. . Persons who work closely with Dulles insist that the picture of him as a shrewd, v calculating. cold diplomat is overdrawn. They know him as'the man who, takes,off his 'shoes as'soon "as he gets on the plane for some foreign meeting arid mother-hens the whole staff for the duration of the trip.

The woods are full of lapidaries, mostly amateur. There are thousands upon thousands of them, said Miss Stern. They make jewelry on a do-it-yourself basis. - : The trouble is they ge,t no cooperation whatever from the tax collector. Each collector seems to have a different idea about what constitutes a, taxable jewel.. Some of these gents tax rocks as jewelry when they're sufficiently hard. THAT'S WHERE the Dinosaur bone came in. Miss_S{erns said, while she made it tinkle^ that since it was petrified, it was just as hard as some of. the other stones classified by the jewels. Rep. Aime J. Forand woridered first off whether anybody .ever had made a jewel put of a Dinosaur bone. Miss Stern said she did not believe so, but you never can tell when a lapidary is apt to try it. Coiiiics Code THERE ARE three ways in which the quality of "bad" comic books might be improved. One is government regulation, or' censorship. The second Is exercise of self-discipline by publishers, the third is elevation of public taste to the point where there would not be. a substantial market for low-grade • comics. .Government control by censorship violates th.e guarantee of free speech embodied in. the Bill of •Rights.- • ,' '•'. ' .:'-", ;-.';.-'•'• Even with regard to so humble a form of communication as the comics, this right to think, ; speak and publish as we please is precious. .Censorship of comic books might pave the way for censorship of other more serious books', and that would be a calamity. , . The second way to make comics : .less objectionable has-.been'tried for a year:now. Charles F. Murphy, administrator . of . the code' ••adopted by the Comics Magazine -Association of America, says, the • results i have been "significant." He believes that comics generally are 'more: acceptable to: decent peopleJhan they were a year 1 ago.' . There,'are, however, ; Unilts to 'Improvement from this source; The only, really effective means In the long nin Is the third method-the ekvation of public taste. That Is a task worthy of the best efforts of school, home,and church. ' Rep. Forahd took a long look at that bone. It was brown-colored: and slightly streaked, but it glist; ened on one side where some lapidary had worked with a polishing wheel and jewelers' rouge. This bone, still didn't look jike a gem to the gentleman from Rhode Island. Or did it?. "Some tax agents say this bone is taxable and some say it isn't," urged Miss Sterns. "We.'re not trying to have the jewelry tax re-. duced.. We .just want somebody to., decide what is jewelry." '• REP. NOAH MASON interrupted to say: "I don't see how they can tax a slab of hard material like this bone as jewelry. They should wait until it actually is cut into jewelry and then tax it." "That," said the triumphant Miss Sterns, "is exactly what we've been trying to tell 'em down there at the Revenue Bureau." She wrapped her Dinosaur bone in its tissue and walked out, looking pleased. The gentlemen turned their attention to the knotty problem of the electric washer-dryer. for the bald eagle. • « (1 > "They are damn pirates I/winftht • tufkey!"> > ' \ ; His peers, as they did on occasion, over. ruled the wisest scientlst-busmeuman—diplo- i mat-perhaps the most all-around man-the 'world has known j. ! -; 'Franklin preferred the turkey u a »ymbol because he thought it was more typical of thu land Many civilizations had used other eagles.^ - And old Ben who had many lore*, knewD the bald'eagle had a habit of preying on a hawk'calied the osprey.

Truman 'favor for the Democratic presidential nomination next year? First he said it' was Adlai Stevenson, the man who carried the Democratic banner unsuccessfully against GOP candidate Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1952. Now he says he Is neutral. It isn't quite clear whether he has backed away from active support of Stevenson, although (hat would seem to follow. In any event, Truman's activities in the past .few days have centered attention on Democratic Gov. Averell Harriman of New York as a possible avowed candidate for the Democratic nomination. Few politicians would deny thai Truman's support in a convention would have great value. , ' He remains a voice within' the Democratic party who can speak and command attention because he is an ex-president of the United States and a political strategist of no small ability. FOR MONTHS PAST, Truman has said with unmistakable clarity that he was for Adlai Stevenson.
