Noycs, Editor and Publish*. 1927-1964. Mrs. Lin wood I. Noyes, President Edwin J. Johnson, Editor and Publisher The Month for Brides Matrimony and the bath nuisl be entered with a rush, because if t/oi/ do it slowly von will get cold feet and not enter at all—Anda- Itisian proverb. More than 1.8 million brides—a record—will be entering matrimony with a rush this year. Blushing or not, more than 200,00 of them will make it to the altar in June, peak wedding month of the year. The 1.4 million marriages in 1958 marked fc postwar low. The total jumped to. 1.5 million in 1960 and more than 1.7 million last year. By 1968 the number of girls marrying in this country is projected to reach 2 million. Census figures tell us that the trend toward early marriage is slacking off, but a majority of girls still marry before their 21st birthdays. Parents who don't want their daughters to marry at 18, the age at which most are marching to the altar, should send them to college. A college education delays the average woman's wedding until she is 22. For girls who did not attend high school, the marrying age Is an astonishing 14 to 16 Sharing food and drink with friends is the most important of all marriage customs among all races and all cultures, according to the National Geographic Society. Even in primitive societies of Africa and Asia the father of the bride often goes nearly bankrupt to pay for * lavish wedding and feast. Fathers in this country will spend up to $2.5 billion this vear to do right by their belles. Considering that the average bride spends about $3,000 on other wedding-centered paraphernalia, and that all told more than $4 billion goes into the. full range of• items, from wedding gowns to bedroom furniture, marriage seems to be a better hedge against economic depression than the Federal Reserve System. Mission Work for Youth Long before there was a Peace Corps, religious bodies in the United States sent young men and women abroad to minister to spiritual and physical needs of foreign neoples. Training starts at Stony Point, N.Y., Monday, June 14, for 18 men and women who have been recruited by the Methodist Board of Missions for specialized mission wdrk in Brazil and Bolivia. The Methodists started their short-term missionary program in 1948—a full 1.3 years before the Peace Corps was born. College graduates between the ages 21 and 28 volunteer to spend three years in a foreign land. These Methodist workers must agree to remain single during their three years of service. The ultimate aim, of course, is to carry the message of Christianity to the nations, but the missionaries frequently discover that they must build a school before they can hope to build a church. The Methodist Church today has 120 "special termers" serving in 25 countries as teachers, public health nurses, social workers, agriculturists and pastors. Since the program began in 1948 a total of 903 young people have gone overseas for short-term service. Recruitment sometimes is a problem. Finding vol- unteers has been easier, however, since the secular Peace Corps made practical work in foreign missions an attractive tiling for young people to do. The South Carolina Race Stripped of his seniority in the House because he campaigned for Barry Goldwater last year, Albert W. Watson resigned from the Democratic party and from Congress to run as a Republican. The special House election in South Carolina's 2nd District on Tuesday, June 15, pits Watson against Preston H. Callison, a conservative Democrat. A knowledgeable source in South Carolina told Edtinrial Research Reports that Watson may win 60 per cent of the vote—a real landslide in American politics. Watson not only has the advantage of a strong personal following in his district but is riding the crest of accumulated grievances in South Carolina against federal civil rights legislation. Moreover, he is facing an opponent who is no more than a first-term state legislator, and a lackluster campaigner, too. If Watson wins, the election will inspire renewed hope among Republicans of building a real two-party system in the South. Democratic National Chairman John M. Bailey already has warned fellow Democrats that the "day of the one-party South is over" and that Democrats "must now start running against Republicans rather than Democrats." A big victory for Watson could backfire in the North if Negro voters take it as evidence that the G.O.P. is becoming a "lily white" party. Health Warnings Reap Deaf Ears In view of the likelihood that health warning labels will eventually be required on cigarette packages, it gives one pause to be told that scaring people is not necessarily the best way to get them to do, or not to do, something for their own good. . This conclusion about human behavior comes from a psychologist with the Universitv of North Carolina School of Public Health and is based primarily on a study of an oral polio vaccination campaign in Florida. There it was found, reports Dr. C. David Jenkins, that the fear of a disease or the risk of getting a disease doesn't seem to encourage people to seek a way of preventing it or reducing the risk. Excessive scare campaigns may, in fact, have just the opposite result. Fear of cancer, he says, has actually driven some women away from screening clinics. Apparently the need is to create a moderate degree of concern in people—something more than apathy but less than fear. Yet some of the people in Florida took the vaccine because "it was the thing to do. It was socially fashionable. It was a way to become a part of the community." Guy who is a soft touch will suffer many a hard knock. Nowadays it seems the silly season runs from January through December. Anything Left for a Rainy Day? «53r«UBk."a.. *v '«*« The only thing the Republicans have eoing for them domestically is that Lyndon Johnson is passing out favors at a rate that could be impossible to maintain over any long period of time. , In 1964 it was the income tax cut. This got the administration past the November election and it has undoubtedly kept the boom going through the first half of 1965. The forthcoming slash in excise taxes is counted on to make people feel good for the rest of the year, especially when they get some tax money knocked off the purchase price of a car. But, since gratitude in politics has been correctly defined as "a lively anticipation of favors to come," neither the income tax cut nor the excise tax remission is going to win the day for LBJ in 1966 and 1968. There will have to be new gimmicks. No one doubts the infinite resourcefulness of the man from Texas when it comes to figuring out new "consensus" bait for voters. But the question is, has LBJ been dipping too far into his—or our—capital to permit a continuation of his political largesse? The current tax take is good, but federal spending continues to outpace it. Theoretically, federal outlays for "poverty" cures and make-work projects should taper oil at the top of a boom, but our present-day Keynesians no longer believe in the so-called compensatory budget. They believe in spending all the tiine^ But when this is the reigning philosophy, there is no cushion left for bad tunes. With the tax take shrinking, you can't pile new Appalachian anti-poverty programs on old ones and new urban renewal projects on last year's federal bulldozing without ruining the value of money. The Brazilians know ill about that. The tax cuts that have made people feel good jpjday will all be cancelled out tomorrow when the bite for medicare takes hold. True enough, this won't hit people with full force until after the 196S elections. But the Spectre of 1969, when the combined employee and employer payroll tax is scheduled to rise to $492.80 out of the first $5,600 of income, will make it next to impossible for the administration to figure out new Social Security "gifts" for anybody in 1967 and 1968. The cow can't be milked forever without being fed. Lyndon Johnson is obviously enjoying his current role of benefactor and protector to the hilt. But William McChesney Martin, the chairman of the Federal Reserve Board, has a point when he warns against the recurrence of a 1929 "new era" euphoria. In his role of professional "No man," Mr. Martin has mentioned such things as the recent rapid increase in consumer debt, the cumulative international deficits, and the expansion of the money supply that has been "superimposed upon a dwindling gold reserve." Feeling that most contemporary money is "only paper," people have been stashing away silver coins and lying to themselves when they say they are "collectors." Mr. Martin takes due note of the many differences between the boom times of 1965 and those of 1929. The economy today has the so-called "built-in stabilizers." Purchasing power can hardly shrink overnight when unemployment insurance, Social Security payments, agricultural support checks and plain old-fashioned relief mean that everybody can pay the grocer. Moreover, the debt in Wall Street to brokers' offices is not particularly high, and both wholesale and consumer prices have been relatively stable. But if the present "new era" should falter, Mr. Martin's warning against our loss of elasticity could prove memorable. Says Mr. Martin: "The rise in government expenditures even in times of advancing prosperity threatens to make it difficult to be more expansionary should a serious decline in private business activity require it." Translated from banker's lingo, this means that LBJ has been spending his depression insurance money at the top of the boom, which is the wrong time to spend it Along for the Ride Today in National Affairs By DAVID LAWRENCE WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court of the United States, by a 5-to-4 vote, has just ruled, in effect, that members of the Communist party cannot be prevented from holding office in labor unions leal strikes gencies. The law which Congress passed has been declared invalid This means that, although the Communist party in the United States is dedicated to the o b - Jective of bringing about the overthrow of the American government, its members cannot ate his official undertakings to the interests of the party." What this means is that in the future it will have to b e demonstrated to the satisfaction of the court in each instance that a Communist has the inten- i tion of actually doing something to overthrow the overnment. The four dissenting members of the court ask how it is possible tc prove that a person intends, to become disloyal. Their opinion continues: "The Communist party's i 1 legal purpose and its domination by foreign power have already, been adjudicated, both administratively and judicially. of intrigue and control over labor unions Many countries are today suffering from Communist control of labor organizations and i n the last several years Congress achieved in this country. In ves control board has found that thCommuniSoS v's P stantiai number of its members are subject to and recognize the disciplinary power of the soviet union and its representatives," and that there is evidence of the domination and control of the Communist party here b y the soviet union for the purpose of advancing "the objectives of the world Communist m o v e- ment." vide a sufficient probability with respect to the individual who persist. 1 * In remaining a mem- -ber of the party, or if a probability is in any event insufficient, what evidence with re- the individual will be it to disqualify him? If ihe must be apprehended in the I act of calling one political strike or in one dec 01 cusioyflity DC™ | fore steps can be taken to exclude Mm from office, there is ventive or prophylactic fun& tion. . . . "Examples of statutes that will now be suspect because of the court's opinion but were, until today, unanimously accepted as legitimate exercises of legislative power could easily b e multiplied. Such a catalogue in itself would lead one to i n quire whether the court's rea- tendfincy on the part of t h e ustices to regard the Com munist party as Just a n o the jplitlcal party, like the Repub lean or the Democratic. Wha s not recognized apparently i hat a political party ceases tc be a normal expression of poll ical viewpoints when it is trans ormed into an abnormal in trument designed to overthrow he Arneripan government itsel by subversion or by a c t u a orce. The majority in the 1 a t e s Supreme Court ruling — consist ng of Chief Justice Warren an ustices Black, Douglas, Bren nan and Goldberg — contend hat the language of the law in licts a punishment on individ uals in preventing them from holding office in a labor unio and that, while an individua can be convicted of disloyalty je cannot be prevented fro holding office in a labor unio merely because he belongs t an organization that seeks th overthrow of the United State government. It is judicial tech nicality carried to extremes. activities control board in several cases nearly 10 years ago, but now the new ruling of the' Supreme Court raises the ques-' tion of whether even the subversive activities control act will become taboo by a future Supreme Court ruling. J u slice White, who was joined in his dissenting opinion in the case this week by justices C 1 a r k, I Harlan and Stewart, said that the reasons given by the court for invalidating the law that prohibits Communists from holding office In labor unions can also be applied throughout the government. He said: "By the same token, a statute disqualifying Communists, or authorizing the executive branch to do so, from holding sensitive positions in the government would be automatically infirm, as would a requirement that employees of the central intelligence agency or the n a - tional security agency d i s claim membership in the Communist party, unless in each case it is proved by evidence other than membership in the Communist party, the nature of which has already been adjudicated, that the individual would commit acts of disloyalty or subordin- verse results." The Supreme Court rul i n g s have in recent years been making it more and more difficult to get at the Communists.

A Daily Thought The National Whirligig to MeCluw Nawapcper •ymllMtM By ANDREW TULLY WASHINGTON — In Contress, boys will be boys — or, ather, politicians — and so the stage has been set for a dose of jood old inflation, which the country needs like Sonny Lison needs a third head. As predicted here, the House has shown Lyndon Johnson that apitol Hill is as good a tax- cutter as he is, and better. It has okayed a $4.8 billion excise tax reduction that is $1 billion higher than the President originally proposed. Not that the President minds, particularly. He made a couple of mild clucking noises when the House Ways and Means Committee increased the r e- ductlon, but then quickly agreed to go along with the committee's decision to repeal the 10 per cent tax on new cars. He thereby abandoned his plan to slash he tax only to 5 per cent during the next 18 months, a proposal which would have retain;d revenues of roughly $1 billion a year. ^Jf ^ ^f PRUDENT PLAN — "While I prefer the program I recommended," Johnzon said, "I feel that if the entire tax is to be removed the Ways and Means Committee program represents a prudent way of doing so." The President was not about to oppose a cut which already had the taxpayers licking their chops But the President is ignoring his own Council of Economic Advisers, which has been i s suing warnings almost daily about the threat of wholesale price rises over the next year or two. Federal fiscal policy is already a stimulant to such an eventuality, and the extra boost given by elimination of the auto excise tax could be a serious blow to Johnson's efforts t o maintain some kind of price stability. National Whirligig four four 44 » a * GOVERNMENT BY CONSENSUS—Johnson's support Of the auto tax cut is another example of his theory of government by consensus. Congress wants it, industry wants it and the man down the street preparing to fork over a down payment of a Ford wants it. But the c o n - sensus is not always right; it tends to take the short-range view of getting what you can today and letting tomorrow take care of itself. .Meanwhile, there is no guarantee that the consumer will be the complete gainer in this ont. This is a tax levied on tht manufacturer, and there is no law providing that it be passed on to the ultimate purchaser, ft a * WILL CAR PRICES HOLD?— To be sure, auto manufacturers, have promised to refund tht first installment of the tax cut- aoout $68 per car —to those who buy horseless carriages between May 14 and the reduction's enactment Into law. But the industry Is under no obligation tc continue to pass on tax cuts once the law is enacted. It can hold new car prices at the old .levels by offering built-in "new f e a - turec," and it can shave a few buck? off trade-in allowances on olo' cars. There are those who argue with some validity that the best way to guard against a recession would be to combine tax reduction with increased spending. But Johnson has promised there will be no boost In government outlays. He is taking the dangerous stand of assuming that tax cuts are a cure-all.
