Nothing to Worry About Th« government wound up the fiscal year-witli a record budget of well over 18,000,000,000. But our officiiils ace taking manful steps to cope with this unprecedented profit. For one thing, civilian employes are •till being added to the government payroll at an average rate of 500 a day, as they have been for the past six months. The 1948 lax cut will reduce fiscal 1949 revenues by several billions, and Representative Knulson promises he'll try lo put through even bigger reductions. So it appeal's that the country can just look at tile surplus, admire it, and forget it. Like Halley's Comet, it is unlikely that it will be around again for some time. SATURDAY, JULY 10, 1948 VIEWS OF OTHERS Looking to the Future And New Aids to Traffic i- It the first two weeks of operation of Blytheville's parking meters can be considered an accurate criterion of the revenues the city is to receive from this new source of municipal revenue, more than 112,500 should be available at the -end of the first year for a street widening program which is so very much needed to facilitate the flow of traffic in the business section of \he city. And almost within the first year the parking rrieters, which were installed at a cost of $66 each, will be paid for and the revenue to the city then will be doubled, providing not less than $25,000 a year for financing the street improvement program. Early experiences with the meters appear to have been satisfactory. Parking space is available on Main, where the 300 meters are located, for shoppers who should have first claim for the privilege of parking in the immediate vicinity of the store where they want to shop. The adjacent streets have not been unduly crowded with parked cars since the meters have driven some all,day parkers off Main. When city officials begin making plans for the city!s first street widening consideration should be given to Chickasawba between Railroad and Sixth Streets where it connects with U. S. Highway 61. Cost of obtaining the needed right-of-way for the three-block project should not be unduly heavy and fortunately for the city the new garage between Railroad and Broadway has been set back far enough from Chickasawba to permit widening of the street, without interfering with this new structure. The other two blocks are potential business property and whether the street is used as residential or business purposes a wider pavement would do much to speed the flow of traffic into the present business district from the North. Until such time as the street is widened, the flow of cars on this important artery of traffic should be speeded if North-bound traffic from the business area could be encouraged to use Broadway to Park and then West to U. S. Highway 61. South-bound traffic on Highway 61 from the North which is headed for the business ^district likewise could avoid • the congested intersection at Chickasawba by turning left on Lumerate and then South on Fifth Street to reach Main. The cost of widening Chickasawba in the three-block area where the street now is so narrow should be within the means of the city as a project for 19.18, or at the very latest early 1949, and it is a project which perhaps will pay ., greater dividends in smoother move>.:• merit of traffic than any other the city •ifht undertake at « comparable co»U \\ The Stakes in Berlin Top American officials hive been conferring about the Berlin crisis In Washington and abroad. By every indication, they ire resolved lo support Gen. Clay't blunt declaration that nothing short of war can budge the western Allies. This Is as it must, be—for tile Russians lire playing for high stakes. The Soviets do not want merely undisputed possession of Berlin. They want *. chance to bring all Germany under Communist domination. The Russians now seem to realize that ttiey made a mistake in breaking up the Foreign Ministers' Conference. Their patience gone, Great Britain «nd the United States, and France reluctantly, were then forced to go ahead on their own with the reorganization of Western Germany, including the Eli-important Industrial Ruhr. Thus, for themselves, the Russian! just about killed the goose that lays the golden eggs. The British ban on shipment* of Ruhr coal to the Hed zone lias underlined this fact for them. While the new We»t German mirk may be ths Immediate excuse for the current Soviet, tactics, their real purpose i» to regain lost ground. The Russians believe they can do this by setting up In Berlin, the accepted capital of the country, a German government which would assert its authority over all Jour occupation »ones. But they cannot do this to long M the AJlles remain In the city and maintain at least three-fourthi of it as an Island In. which the anti-Communist parties can expose the machinations of the S.E.D.. the "unity" party which the Russians have formed for the delivery of the country into their hands. To clear the city for this maneuver, the Russians now >re trying to starve about 2,000.000 people In the Western sectors to the point at which these Berliners themselves will ask the Allies to withdraw. In Its crazy way. the Politburo calculates that even the most democrattc- minded individual can toe induced to trada freedom for bread. But this is not the only string to the Russian bow. The crisis also seems calculated lo exploit Allied differences, especially French doubts about the Western German government which is to be created under the London agreement. Already Paris I: hesitant about taking a strong stand. And in this Molotov may well see some Western support for another meeting of the Foreign Ministers. Such a meeting was suggested at last week's Communist get-together In Warsaw. If It actually were held, Molotov might well offer to make concessions for the sake of reestablishing four-power rule In Germany. But such a "reformation" would bear a striking resemblance to Ihe blandishments of the spider for the fly. It would not go against the Russian grain to make concessions now for the sake of a chance to take over some time in the future. Gambling on a gradual withdrawal of Western support from German democracy.- they might count on winning by infiltration in the end. Such possibilities must be as clear to Western statesmen as they are to Russian minds. A headlong response to the Warsaw suggestion of another four-power conference Is to be avoided. A joint protest against the Kremlin's tactics in Berlin is much mor In ordr. Some discussion thtre probably will have to be. if only to avoid giving the Russian propagandists another chance to say thai the Westerners always turn their backs on peace. But however stiff the pressures or coy Ihe promises may become, there can be no abandonment of Berlin until > basic European settlement Is achieved.. -^ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH.
