THURSDAY, JHC_IMMR_4 £ _195 8 Yea, in the way of thy judgments, O Lord, have we waited for thee; the desire of our soul is to thy name, and to the remembrance of thee.—Isaiah 26:8. * *...-* The human soul is like a bird that is born in a cage. Nothing can deprive-it of its natural longings, or obliterate the mysterious remembrance of its heritage. — Epes Sargent. The Cruelesf Tax' The cost of living has held steady, on a national average, for two months now. This may be hard for most of us to believe after we've totted up the week's grocery bill, but it has been pounced upon with great delight by those who refuse to believe in the threat of inflation. Nevertheless, inflation is still very much in the picture. And the real villian in the act is the headlong pace of government spending. Unless it's.curbed, warns tax authority Roswell Magill, we may be "on the downhill road to disastrous inflation that so many countries have traveled before—the road that leads to a 50-cent, 25-cent, 10-cent, 1-cent dollar." * * * . ' . Magill, who Is chairman of Tax Foundation, Inc., and a former Undersecretary of the Treasury, pointed out the other day (in the Saturday Evening Post) that a nation as great as ours "cannot rely continuously on borrowing and inflation as its regular method of paying its bills." Yet in the current fiscal year the government will spend almost 80 billion dollars. The biggest item is major national security — 46.8 billions. And the second biggest item is interest on the national debt— 7.6 billions! Obviously, higher taxes are not the solution. Tax Foundation figures show that direct and hidden taxes levied by all levels of government now take about a third of the average person's income. On top of that, says Magill, we have inflation, "the cruelest tax of all—and we all are paying it." * * * To figure what inflation has done to you since 1946, look at what's happened to your buying power. A married couple with income of $3,000 in that year needs $4,445—a boost of 48 per cent—just to stay even in 1958. If your 1946 income was $5,000, you need $7,343 today to match it. Sure, the cost of living may have stood e point of this system? in the laboratory to improve crop yields, iftbsorb more of ft sun , s then we buy up and store the surplus.

We've all jin rebuttal to our recent criticism been eating too much anyhow. Says so ,of some very narrow, Iowa roads right here on the women's page. — the one we had in mind being specifically, Highway 21B. Iowa, she writes, has more roads per county than Minnesota. She adds that much of the money for roads in Minnesota must come from the tourist trade. (Our concern, Ma'am, was chiefly about some of the narrow high- Opinions of Others TUITION'S NO ANSWER There is no doubt that the nation's colleges and universities are entering a period of far greater enrollment and far higher costs But there is much reason to doubt that big tuition boosts would solva wav f' on which we f *lt insecure. tliese twin problems ns neatly as those who champion this proposal seem to think. Higher student fees, it is argued, would have the double effect of curbing enrollments and helping to pay for new and expanded facilities that will be needed. This may be true — but it Is a superficial approach to the matter. It might also have the undesirable effect of denying an education to qualified young men and women who could not pay the higher tuition. This was pointed out effectively In a statement made by heads of major public colleges and universities at their recent meeting in Washington. The idea of pushing tuition up high, the statement said, Is based on the "false theory" that the individual is the one who chiefly benefits from receiving an education. On the contrary, said these educators, society is the chief beneficiary when young people are well trained .for life in that society. "Every phase of our national strength," the statement said, "depends ultimately on the quality and number of young people who receive advanced education." It also emphasized the national tradition of "equal opportunity in life for our young people," and noted that this tradition would be reversed if advocates of higher and higher tuition win out. The statement raises a warning flag that should be heeded.—ROCHESTER POST BULLETIN ROYAL REBEL In the western world, a man's wife is presume! worthy/of him by the mere process of marrying him. This social climate makes it hard for us to comprehend the revolution in thought required for the Japanese to accept the forthcoming marriage of Prince Akihito to a commoner. It isn't that 24-year-old Mlchiko Shoda isn't rich, pretty, well educated and accomplished. It is that the throne of Japan has been considered an outpost of heaven, and its heir obligated to marry a peer trained for the duties of an empress. Emperor Hirohito is said to have favored the match, on the ground that the royal family could stand some healthy new blood. Coupled with the encouragement to youth to rebel at arranged marriages, nothing could better typify the new day in Japan. If only that it Is human to like people better tne more they become like ourselves, Americans — who don't care a fig for 500 years of traditions — will be inclined to cheer heartily for the prince's choice.—CHICAGO DAILY NEWS We have no available statistics but will accept your statement as to more roads per county. As to the construction of roads by mone; from tourists, economically, Minnesota would be better off if the northern portion had the excellent soil found in Iowa or southern Minnesota. Frankly, while we admire and enjoy our 10,000 lakes, we would be willing to exchange a thousand of two in return for excellent Iowa agricultural land.) FOR THOSE who insist that names mean nothing, no better example could be found than the American Medical Association's award of "Outstanding General Practitioner of the Year" to a Farmington, Iowa, physician, named Dr. Lonnie Coffin. We doubt he Watch Potash in Action Against Old Red Friejids fir VICTOR R1ESEL NEW YORK - In the western section of New York City as well as the eastern sector of Communist Berlin, Soviet agents have been meeting secretly. They have been planning to whiplash us from behind. It was here that the high command of the American Communist Party gathered Nov. 18-20 after a directive from abroad to resurrect its undercover labor ap paratus. Such an "apparat" could still call In the leaders of some five or six powerful unions with almost half a million members. Properly directed it could still unleash strategic strikes at mighty strategic moments in the very center of strategic shipping and defense production and communication. And a directive is a directive, as the comrades say in Moscow, or should if they don't. High on the order of business of the secret session of the Communist Party, U.S.A.'s "Executive Committee," therefore, were the words of a slender, gray haired world traveler in his mid-50s.

SOKOLSKY I heard a man say, with full sincerity, that no matter what else has happened, we have bad *ix years of peace. What then is peace? If we have to have a budget of $80,000,000,000, most of which must be spent on military activities, are we at peace? Because we do not know how to use the new methods, or dare not use them if we do know how, are we at peace? If we have to Bend Marine* to Lebanon and the Navy to Quemoy and are now prepared to send ground forces to protect Berlin, are we at peace?

We appreciate your concern over the inconsistency of church i people, but don't you think if youj received Christ and got into the church that you would be in a better position to make suggestions? You complain that there is such a wide variety of Christians, and that their behavior patterns are not all the same. Look at the 12 men who Jesus chose to be His disciples. Peter was unpredictable. John was quick to get angry. James was ambitious, and Judas was greedy. But these ordinary, run-of-the-mill men when they were filled with God's spirit turned the world upside down. They had critics and persecutors of course, but that did not deter them. It may be that God is calling you to be the kind of Christian you think others should be. If so, we welcome you into the fellowship of believers. traveling much recently. It had ouches of prison pallor. The telltale gray came from almost two years in the Federal Penitentiary at Atlanta. But the gray-haired one has lost none of his decisiveness. He had slipped secretly into the country in December of 19S6. some $500 in his pocket and Moscow's orders in his head. Two FBI agents picked him up— ;hey found him in a BronxvilW, N. Y., bar — a distance indeed from his last assignments in Warsaw and Peiping. At first he told the FBI he was just a man called 'Edwards." But they knew him to be the old Fur Workers' Irving Potash, one of the highest leaders in the once powerful Communist bloc of unions. "Edwards" was the traditional name used by 'Comintern agents" — the men Moscow dispatches to direct American Communists in secret. Served 2 Yean Irving Potash had accepted voluntary deportation to his native Poland some years earlier. For Illegally slipping across the U. S. border again, Comrade Potash served a two year term in Atlanta. With time off for good behavior he was freed last Aug. 2fi. Agents of the immigration and Naturalization Service picked him up the same day. They accepted bond. They told him to make the rounds of embassies in Washington. The federal agents couldn't re- deport Communist agent Potash unless one of these embassies gave him a permanent visa. Potash said he would try to get some country to accept him once again. But on Nov. 18, Tovarich Potash sat down with the American Communist Party's most trusted leaders, the Executive Committee of the Communists' National Board. Apparently Potash had decided that he liked it here. The Executive Committee, meeting under instructions not to tell even ths larger national Board, elected Potash to its guarded inner ranks. Took Labor Assignment Immediately he took over the labor assignment. He would in effect be labor secretary, but not formally, of course. In fact, his instructions to be gathered comrades were to keep his assignment secret from all others. No one was to know that the labor secretary's spot, vacant since the old labor secretary, John Williamson, had been deported to England, was now filled. How would he operate T How could he then make contact with the pro-Communist labor leaders in this country? This wai solved easily, comrades. Unless this columnist's disclosure checkmates the move, Irvin Potash if elated to be a reporter, sort of an assistant labor editor of the Worker. This is the weekly successor to the Daily Worker. Thus, the com- radea were still using an old Leninist tactic. It is vividly described in a British report I picked up in London this summer. The report, exposing British Communist techniques in directing Communist controlled unions says: "At conferences of some of tli* big unions a headquarters official of the Communist Party attends as a 'press representative' but the notes he writes are not for publication. They are ans- weres to points being made by speakers from the rostrum. These notes are passed by a 'courier', a party member who is a conference delegate, to some other member in the conference who then tries to catch the president's eye so he may express from the rostrum the points he has been instructed to make." - It will be fascinating watching Tovarich Potash in action amongst his old Communist labor friends.
