The Republicans' task will be simpler —not easier, but simpler—because they •re dealing; with one man Mr. Truman will be dealing with some 500 men and women. But if the. GOP has the simpler Job, its supporters should go about it with great care and thoroughness. Historians seem to agree that there have been a few administrations marked by the ineptitude, or worse, of the man at the helm. .But the Republicans should not confirm themselves to the opposite party in their search for examples, since they did not simply accuse Mr. Truman of being our worst Democratic President. They should not stop with, say, the timid inaction of a Buchanan. Let them also consider the Grant administrations, which are not generally regarded as shining examples of good government. Or they might even come down to the Harding administration of contemporary memory. Then, in fairness, they should drp.w up and present comparative schedules of presidential deeds. These would be checked, in the manner of true-or-false tests, as good or bad. As for Mr. Truman, he has a hard job ahead of him before he even makes a comparison between the 80lh Congress h^ Jf 3 f 1 ^ 5 f ° r thp boob >' P riz <=- Fi«t, he must define wliat he means by this worst" Congress. Is it the Congress of Republicans who .ponsored the Taft Hartley Law, which he doesn t hke, or of Democrats who have threatened to talk hi s civil rights program to death if it ever comes up for debate ? Is it the Congress that approved the Trurnan DocWrK, or the Congress of the purging Thomas Committee? The Con £*« th.t made law of the Marshal Plan o r the Cong,e« wh QSP lower house puUhe-mea^x'cutonaidappropria- I* it the Congress whose Senate passed a selective draft bill, or the one whose House bottled up the military training bill in its Rules Committee an.) never let it come to a vote?

COUK.IKR NK\VS these unfortunates— without benefit of personal observation—"the scum of Ku- rope, an aggregation of loafers." Mr, Truman'* damnation is pretty generalized. The 80th Congress contain* men from the GOP side who have worked side by side with him on his conduct of foreign affaira. They have done thin not because our foreign policy is necessarily Mr. Truman's foreign policy, but because they agreed with him on the direction ;uul scope of the program. If they h;ul not done this he would surely be more bitter and frustrated than he is today. There are congressmen lik« Senator Taft who have opposed the President on some domestic issues and supported him on others. There was one senator of Mr. Truman's party who bolted to become Hnnry Wallace's running mute, nnd there are other Democrats who have fought him from lac to the right. And, of course, there are those who have been against him on strict parly lines. Now, if both sides of the argument will answer thcso questions, fulfill the minimum reouircmcnts of honesty and definition, an ' let the record .spe; ( k for itself, then- miglu be some excusu for ;t booby-prize canipa ; gn.

House Appropriations Committee is Accused Of Ruthless Usurpation of Legislative Power ' ...... ~~ ••••••••*» VIEWS OF OTHERS »•»••••••«»•*•••«• Freedom Not to Listen There U no better symbol of freedom of speech than London's Hyde ! : ark—where an enthusiast may mount a soap box and harajigue the tolerant listeners who galher around him. Yet the Englishman loves privacy almost as much us he loves free- ' doni. He would not easily accept any infraction of his right to listen or rot to listen, as he chooses. The American, who has carried publicity lo dlizy helghu of accomplishment, is equally devoted to the freedom nl speech, Ihougli somewhat less so to the right to be quiet. This is symbolized by the llve-to-four Supreme Court decision ruling that a lound truck may be used by a religious group In a public park without license from the chief of police. Thus the loudspeaker as a medium of free speech is safeguarded from arbitrary restriction by local authority, while the loudspeaker as a public nuisance is free lo assail private ' ears: Ruefully we concur wllli the majority opinion of the court. The particular case under review may have been a poor lest,, since it involved only a potential and not an actual restriction of free speech. Yet a present nuisance may be a lesser evil than a potential danger. And those who would woo the public with the strident bray of the loudspeaker may oe discouraged by means other than le^al restrictions which, are themselves open to abuse.

Under lhe rules of Congress, thu standing legislative committees a.-o supposed to draft the laws authorizing expenditures of money. Th.> appropriations committees arc then supposed to pass on the spending of the money. Appropriations coin:s are not, however, ernpo-.v- lo change lhe authorization Jaws. In cutting Marshall Plan eiob.U ' reeoi-cry funds from S6.0CO.COO.COO lo | io.OM.CCO.CO, lhe House Appropria- • HODS Committee rimy have been acting within its rights. But in specifying Dial funds should be i .spent over a lo-inonih period end- j ing June 3. 1949. instead of ihe > 12-month period ending March 31, | 1840, the coniiniitcc rewrote the j Foreign Assistance Act ol 1948, aiul ! in so doing went far bevond its ; gram ol powers. The effect of this i change in the law was to cut Euro- ! pean recovery funds by 26 per cent. Other Kraxcn Legislation Other willful changes of the law I by thc Taber Committee have been | just as brazen, though involving I smaller sums ol money. : In handling War Assets AdininLi- i (ration appropriations for the com- I Ing year, lhe T.^bcr Committee tooi ' the liberty of rewriting the surplus proueity law. This law specific; WAA shall po out of business DC; ! 31. 1949. In the WAA appropriations ' bill, however, the Taber Committee ! .let the date at AUK. 31 1018 I ' ihe tying tiiat WAA should turn over aircraft and pans 10 the Air Force, personal property lo the Federal Buieau of Supplier, and real estate to thc Reconstruction Finance Corporation. The Ta'jer Committee tried in write IIHO thc law a provision thnt, all Federal government surplus pc.sonal property and real estate .should be made subject to slale and local taxes. Up to now this property has been tax free. The effect of ihe Taber Committee, action would be to increase government co.ils. It i.s an open laid on the Federal Treasury for the benefit of slate and local government It may cost Uncle Sam millions of dollars. Another highly significant example ol Taber Coir.mttiee legislation came in the STO.OOO.COO appropriation for U. S. participation in the International Refugee Organization. While approving this appropriation, the Tober Committee specified that thc diet, in displaced person ca.-ups in Europe should bo no higher than the ration for tho country in which the camp was lo- caieci. ".Alaskan Investigations" Subterfuge Perhaps the trickiest bil of business of tills kind this year was th'j Insertion of a ciause wider the title of "Alaskan Investigations" in lhe Department of Interior Appropriation bill, n states thai interest payments by the Federal government, on public power and city waier --""..^ n,t v,vol. ul IM1UIH1UI1 aim public power. Obviously this rider lias nothing to tio with "Alaskan investigation.;" 11 was put i n (he bill to raise Hie rales on government power and wafer and to make additional Reclamation projects unfeasible. The Department of Interior supply bill for the ne'xt fiscal year was studded with similar Taberizing attempts to change basic law. liureau of Reclamation was for- ployes .seeking to sell public power to consumers that already had pri- I vale power supplies.

Many of these restrictions by the House Appropriations committees are being reversed by lhe Senate and may nol appear i n bills as finally pjiSsieci. But alt are specific examples of Taber Commute skull- uress. cuts made by dirty objects are more likely lo produce trouble than tlio a e rnac.c by clean objects. Tin- liber* I use of soap and water is lhe bes; way ol promoting cleanliness. The third point to decide is wnai antiseptic or germicide should ae put on. Various common substances used for tins purpose include linc- turc of iodine and an enormous number of chemical combinations containing mercury, silver, and certain dyes. Unfortunately. Ihere is no one preparation which scorns lo be superior as an all-purpose antiseptic. Tincture ot iodine causes some stinging in tpcn wotuids but seems lo be aboul as good a.- the other-*, 'hough it tends to burn a;\d (lightly damage the tissue. Certainly it should not be used more than once or twice on the same wound. All of the antiseptics marketed by reputable companies seem to have some advantages and som; disadvantages.
