Tuesday Afternoon, December 6, 1955 OUR COUNTRY The union at hearts, the union of hontfi and the Flag at our Union forever.— Morri) Just Another Angle FRANCE FOR ONCE has offered a : new twist to a nation and a world weary , of endless cabinet crises. This time the defeated premier, Edgar Faure, brought the house down with him. So the lawmakers who did Faure in by voting "no confidence" in his regime find they must stand for re-election this coming Jan. 8. ' It seems there's an old law on the books which says that when a cabinet falls twice within 18 months, the National Assembly may be dissolved and new elections ordered. With a show of nerve and perhaps no little spite, Faure invoked it. And for the first time in 78 years the lawmakers will have to face the voters before their normal terms have expired (next June). AS USUAL IN FRENCH politics, complex personal and .political rivalries lay at the root of this newest government collapse. Pierre Mendes-France, Faure's predecessor in office and a member of the same Radical Socialist party, has been working steadily to regain power. Recog- • nizing this, Faure had proposed to advance the June election by six months, hoping thus to forestall Mendes-France's bid. It was generally believed it would take the latter about that long to weld together the Center-Left coalition he has been building. In that grouping are some Socialists, other non-Communist Leftists, . and about half the Radical Socialists. _ Supporting Faure were most of the other Radical Socialists and various other party elements to the right of Center. THE FORCES BEHIND Mendes- France evidently felt they were on pretty sure ground when they struck down Faure's regime. But he foxed them by digging out the law that had .lain in disuse since 1877. Now Faure gets what he wants—an early election. Whether a newly elected assembly will give him or some other Right.-Center -leader the chance for a more stable government is anybody's guess. The new election will be held under a 1951 law that favors alliances in the Center at the expense of extremes of Right and Left. But Faure's action has badly split his own party, and it is nard at this stage to measure what sort of alignment.may emerge from the January balloting. .Probably it is best to take a cheerful outlook. Government in France could hardly be more unstable, so perhaps it may get better. Hope springs eternal that the French may one day tire of their silly parliamentary merry-go- round and put in lawmakers whose purpose is to govern long and responsibly under far-sighted leadership. Soil Bank Plans THERE IS GROWING support for some variety of government land rental program to build soil fertility and bolster farm income. Various farm organizations have subscribed to the idea in one form or another. The Department of Agriculture, vhich hitherto has not committed itself, now seems on the verge of doing so. An official of the department recently said flatly that a land rental plan will be part of the administration's farm program. Most of the plans suggested—the Department of Agriculture is studying nearly a score of them—would have government rent farm .land in order to take it out of production of crops now in surplus supply. Farmers would be required to plant such land with soil-building crops to store up fertility for future years. In starting such a program, Congress must make sure that acreage thus diverted from surplus crops 'is really planted to soil-builders and managed according to good conservation practices. Also, it must be recognized that there are many kinds of farms and farm conditions. The program can be administered properly only if local authorities have wide discretionary powers. Care must be taken, in short, to see that whatever plan is adopted fulfils the main purpose of building soil fertility and propping up farm income without lining the pockets of the undeserving. Payroll Deductions A BULGARIAN newspaper recently ran an account of a man named Koljo who expected to be paid 305 leva, about $40 at the official exchange rate, for summer work on a collective farm. Before he received the money, deductions were made for these purposes: electricity, water, "voluntary" donations to the Red Cross, the defense organization and the hunting organization; a radio license; a fine imposed by the village council; his son's subscription to the youth movement; a 1955 calendar; and newspapers. These deductions amount to 335 leva, 30 more than the 305 he was slated to receive. He paid the extra leva himself. Maybe he even had to pay a bookkeeping fee and carrying charges .

Stokes Friendly Visits Work We 11 For Stevenson WASHINGTON—In his four-day visit around and about Florida last week, Acllai Stevenson unveiled a type of campaigning which he is expected to use in the long period between now and the national nominating convention next August, It is really not accurate to call it new, for it is somewhat similar to the meel-the-folks style used by Senator Estes Kefauver of Tennessee in his whirlwind 1952 campaign that took him into 14 states. In the formula favored by the Stevenson managers, the idea is for their candidate to move into a state, circulate here and there as he did in Florida where he paid visits to two colleges, among other places. He will also make informal, howdy-do talks for which he has spe- ial talent, and perhaps a major address in which he tackles national or international issues as he did in his speech on housing before the convention of the Na- tionnl Municipal Association at Miami. iness of campaigning such as the hunting and fishing he was able to enjoy between-times on his Florida excursion.

Peter Edson Soviet Clients May End Up Plain Suckers WASHINGTON — (NEA) — The keynote of coming commercial competition with America—sounded by Russian leaders Bulganin and Khrushchev on their current tour of Asian nations raises interesting angles on the cold war shift into economic warfare. About all the Soviet salesmen have done so far is to make contacts and offer friendship. The record of Russian contracts signed and deliveries made on time leaves a great deal to be desired by their clients. U. S. foreign trade experts point to Russian failure to deliver petroleum p.r o d u c I s to Latin- America and machinery tn Yugoslavia. Consequently, any of the underdeveloped countries who sign up with the Russians arc buying a pig in a poke. About all the Communist bloc countries have to export arc propaganda and surplus, secondhand arms. the Chinese Communists. They dollar contract to build a steel had put on a similiar display at mill in India. And when Bulganin the conclusion of an international and Khrushchev went to visit a trade fair held in Cairo earlier in dam construction project, they the year. The Egyptians bought a duplicate, paying for it in cotton. Asked what else the Communists had sold at the fair, the Egyptians replied. "Nothing." There hud been some Russian, found American engineers supervising the contract. These aren't vague promises. They are actual deliveries. AN EGYPTIAN financial mis- but mostly Czech, machinery on sion has been here dickering with exhibit. But there were no prices on anything. Also, the salesmen were extremely vague on deliveries. It was all Communist show to impress Egypt. 'WHEN THIS correspondent was in Cairo for Egypt's independence day observances, one of the highlights of the celebration was a fireworks spectacular on the Nile. Inquiry as to where the fireworks came from disclosed (hey had been sold to the Egyptians by ABOUT THIS time, lhe-U. S. Department of Commerce got excited over the competition. A stepped-up American participation in trade fairs was begun. It was apparently designed to compete with Chinese Communist fireworks. Anyway, Hollywood's Cinerama wowed the Arabs at one fair. An A'nierican toy train seems to have been the sensation in Pakistan. How . much business this has brought to American exporters has not been revealed. A • far more concrete development came just as the Bulganin- Khrushchev tour was getting started. U. S. Industrialist Henry Kaiser announced a 130-million- the World Bank on financing the billion-dollar Aswan dam project in the Nile valley. Without making any surveys of their o w n, the Russians have breezed in on the deal. They offer to build the project for less money, finance it at lower interest rates, and take payment in cotton, instead of hard money. It is no doubt a tempting offer. But can the Russians deliver? Fortunately, the Egyptians seem to realize that they will get a better dam from a World Bank project. But if ihe World Bank turns it down as unsound, the Egyptians may turn in desperation to the Russians, just as they did in their cotton-for-arms deal with Czechoslovakia. But they could become just another object lesson like every other country that has listened to the siren songs of the Soviet super salesmen.

The President fever here is as common as diphtheria used to be. You can't ask a simple question and get a simple answer in Washington. If you ask a fellow in the same room with you what time it is he doesn't tell you, he issues a "statement." No one ever says: "Time to fold up, Joe. Nice party. See you sometime." They take a stance and say: "I believe I'll take my Waldorf last Tuesday." Heaven help you and Connie Hilton, you haven't been inside the Waldorf in weeks. And if they discover that you make your living, such as it is, mauling a typewriter, they either drift away in haste or crowd around in squads. The one man you remember with gratitude and warmth is Art Bailey, whom you met at a cocktail party in Chevy Chase. He talked like a man, behaved with candor and was a man of taste "The last of the continental lovers." "I never liked that reputation," he said, then added with a wry smile: "And now I can't live up to it. Age has taken care of that. "Actually, I really have done only a few highly romantic roles, but the lover tag stuck to me for some reason. "I've been plagued by it, not Haltered by it. It is silly to be labeled a 'continental lover,' and I never accepted the label." In private life the veteran actor, surpr^- ing'y youthful looking after more than a qu'ftJ ler century on stage and screen, lives an intercontinental romance.
