Barbs A divorce court judge says too many ftrls love a man just for tht time being. Another way of saying just for the present Street Widening Projects To Eliminate Bottlenecks Steps by Mayor Jackson and the City Council looking to an early start on a street widening project for sections of Walnut, Ash and Chiekasawba in the business district will be welcomed by citizens of Blytheville and those from the suvroundinj} territory who use these streets with regularity. Such a project will go a long way to eliminate traffic bottlenecks which ex-' ist wherever there is heavy traffic on narrow pavements, and the \videning of the pavement on these streets will make the use' of th« traffic lights more satisfactory. Traffic lights on narrow streets can hamper the flow of traffic, unless parking- is prohibited at all times and the ban enforced to the letter. Blytheville can expect heavier traffic and more parking on the narrow streets when the parking meters on Main are in use, thus the street widening project can be expected to have an important role in making possible satisfactory use of the parking meters to permit shoppers to find parking space near the stores where they want to trade. Blytheville is mor« fortunate than most older cities when it comes to eliminating the nuisance of narrow streets. Blytheville streets, for tho most part, are sufficiently wide to permit easier flow of traffic by merely widening the pavements on Walnut, Ash and portions of Chickasawba. Walnut and Ash should be widened to Division to permit better ilow of crosstown traffic in the residential areas, too. Joe Stalin Gets-Boost When House Slashes ERP A short news dispatch recently, based on a Moscow broadcast, announced that the Soviet jf.ivernment had decided to cut in two the balance on reparation payments due from Hungary and Romania. The announcement came four days after the U. S. House of Representatives had decided to cut the requested appropriation for European aid by more than a quarter. This was the latest indication that Russian policy is taking a new tack. Earlier Moscow had reduced the demand for Finnish reparations, and had raised wages and increased rations in the Soviet zone of Germany. In other words, Uncle Joe Stalin has put on a broad smile and is trying to look even more benevolent that benevolent Uncle Sam. And it must be said that the House action gave Uncle Joe a brilliant assist on the play. This raises again the question of whether the House leaders had th« least idea of what they were doing when they put through that cut or if indeed, they comprehend its effect even now. The average European cannot be ex- Pected to know the story behind the cut. H« doesn't know that this slash was largely the work of John Taber, perennial penny.pincher and head of the House Appropriations Committee, and of Speak- «r Joseph Martin and Majority Leader Charles Haneck. _ H« doesnt' know that the vote was close, that many members were absent, that a »iwb;« group fought hard BI,YTIIKVIU,K (ARK.) COUKIBR NEWS asrain»t Hit reduction to th« end. H« doesn't know that smojitf the support- era were many whose chief distinction is a willingness to jump through the hoop when the House leaders crack the wliip. What the average European probably thinks—and has a ri#ht to think— is that tht House ia an elected group truly representing the wishes of the people. He probttbly thinks that the American people now wish to hedge on their promises of help, while the Russian government is backing up its promises of a Communist Utopia with soma tangible benefits. It would seem that Messrs. Tabor, Martin, Halleck and the rest are as misinformed about the wishes of the American people a s this average European we were talking about. For it has been shown clearly and repeatedly Unit the majority of Americans favor an aid program substantial enough to put Europe on its feed and get it off America's back. Maybe these wntlemen didn't really think much about Kurope or about our government's prol.lems there. Perhaps they just figured that this i s an eleclion year, und that n gesture of .economy ought to be worth some votes. So they Cut EKP by ?1,745,000,000. That was about an average week's military expenditure by this country in World War Maybe these gentlemen should be reminded again that we are fighting a tough if bloodless war to save freedom in Europe for the sake of our own free- ciorn. We may not be losing that war today, but we aren't winning it. The vital political battle fc.r Germany seems to be going against us. A friendly French government, which depends much on us, is under attack fro mtwo sides. Tile flush of gratitude and enthusiasm for the Marshall Plan has subsided. Europe is waiting to see the great promises fulfilled. Meanwhile our opponent, though he may lie low at times never rests from his drive to communize Europe. In thig atmosphere tlie gentlemen of the House, through innocence ignorance or malice, have given their country a major setback in its fight for freedom. VIEWS OF OTHERS A. T.&T. Yields Ground Under outside pressure, the American Telephone ff Telegraph Co., the world's largest corporation, Is belatedly en B aged In Beir-examination. Tile pressure comes from. » siwctal telephone committee of the National Association of Railroad and Utility Commissioners, and. is directed at monopoly prices charged by Western Electric. A. T. i T.a manufacturing subsidary, and at the license conlract fees paid by the operating subsldaries. Th« investigation st Western Electric prices has brousht two reductions even before the committee's preliminary report has been submitted Prices were reduced 5 per cent M of Jan. 1 and now an additional reduction of 3.6 per cent Is announced. These reductions will help nlake telephone rate Increases unnecessary or hold them down Southwestern Bell ana other operating subsidiaries buy some M per cent of their equipment from Western Electric. Tliers is no reason to believe, of course, that Western Electric has gone as tar as it can go in reducing prices. Paul Walker of the Federal Communications Commission, once estimated that western Electric's prices are 30 per cent higher than they would be if monopoly conditions m the telephone industry were abolished so that another major supplier could arise to compete. Western Electric sUtcd i!s p rorils , ast as S3'2.000.000 net, on more than 10 per cent on Die book value of the Mock. But the company paid Income taxes on $05.000.000.

Why | do you need to send 120 tractors to Austria? MAHON—Tn my own Congressional District today, many of the farm tractors cannot move because they do not have an adequate supply of gasoline in the stale of Texas which produces as much gas. How can we expect the people of Austria tors? Theres' use of sending p E—Austria has never produced the f,,i| amount of food nec- esssary for its population. to get enough gas to operate trac- tractors over there.

He said he saw little (he kerosene lantern, the talka- phone, the horseless buggy, Jlyinjf machine and electronic baby litter. And right now—the perfect can opener.
