Oonn FACE 4—ITAtTOATCCK NEWS (CONN.), SATURDAY, NOV. 19, 1940 but under present conditions It has taken on the aura of wishful thinking. The Reconstruction Finance Corporation has loaned Kaiser an additional $44,000,000,000, to be used in tho production of a "new, low-priced automobile." Several Senators are extremely skeptical of this deal, however, and have intimated they may scoK a congressional inquiry Into tho loan. Instead of coming down, automobile prices are considerably higher than they were two or three years ago. Manufacturers are operating under ever-Increasing wage scales, nor docs there seem to be hope of lower material coats. Nor is that all. The government must have its divvy, and It's a big one. Presumably, a low-priced car would sell for $1,000. Federal, state, income, withholding, corporation, sales, property and other direct and indirect taxes would take the first $450 of that amount. What would be left to put into the car would hardly result in a serviceable and dependable chariot. •X7BSCRIFTIOK RATM Ps>T»bl* la Advance, I Month ...*1JO 1 Year ..»1MO Pnb. M. «.

Newspaper Publishers Ass-n SATCBDAY, NOVEMBER 19, European Economics • In the struggle for Germany, •which, Is essentially the struggle for Europe, political and martial developments have tended to obscure the important economic factors which underlie and complicate Western resistance to Soviet expansion. Headline* are made of the Soviet marshal, Rokossovsky, taking command of the Polish army; of hint* that the Russian military border thus moves up to Eastern Germany; of Russia's East German satellite encouraging former Wehrnsacht off leers to join the people's police." So also Is public attention attracted by the flag-waving of the West; by the Western military lineup of the North Atlantic Pact; by Big Three agreements to strengthen Western Garmany against Eastern Germany. There is an eye-catching quality to the conflict over Germany. At the same time, it is exceedingly deceptive, considering the tootpa- thesis that its "solution" lies in harnessing an industrially strong Germany to Western Europe. So it does, perhaps, as the Big Three are agreed—in principle. The disagreement occurs over bow the harnessing Is to be accomplished. Thereunder lie the e&Nioznle factors which are vital to the defense of democracy in Europe. It Is comparatively simple for the United States to urge an end to the dismantling of West German industry, for Instance,, and to favor higher West German pro- ductlon. For that matter, it is Jn*t as simple for EGA Administrator Hoffman to oall lor a "one- market" integration of Western European trade and for an end to the traditional barlrefs by which each nation has protected its Industry In (he past. But it is another matter for these drastic measures to be accepted, lock-stofck-and-barrel, by •uch trading nations as Britain and France. They cannot but look with misgiving, upon West- era Germany booming into their continental and overseas markets, especially so when their own industries are enervated and Inefficient as a result not only of war, but also of postwar government pampering. It will be noted that at the meeting of the Big Three Foreign Ministers in Paris, dismantling was the major issue to be decided. Instead, it was agreed that Western Germany and the Baar should be accepted into the Council of Europe. That was the stop-gap—a political gesture. The economic issue was put off, ostensibly, to get the reaction of the French Assembly, but never- theles Jt remains at the very base of Western defenses in Europe. Curbing Paternalism California's old-age assistance payments to 240,000 beneficiaries have averaged $70.60 a month against a- national average of $*3.50. This was the result of a law initiated by the state's Town- sendltes and adopted by the voters a year ago. •- It provided the most liberal old-age assistance program in the country. The age eligibility was reduced from 65 to 63, which extended coverage . to thousands of additional persons.. Saddled with 'a- «00,000,000 yearly outlay, less federal grants- in-ald. for this one form of pub- t lie-relief, citizens .soon- realized a serious mistake had been made. .Besides the extra tax burden, ade-. quate aid for other relief categories was jeopardised. But the law had been passed by popular Vote, it coUld be changed only by popular vote. A referendum movement won in the recent election. • By restoring age eligibility to 88 and lowering the limit on the value of property a pensioner may own, the repealer is expected to result in the dropping of 40.000 persons, from the pension rolls. Counties will share in the cost and the legislature is given full power henceforth, over old-age assistance laws. Close relatives also become liable In part for support of the indigent aged. • California's experience should b*-a lesson to other states In- clined.to carry paternalism to extremes. _ Cost Of Automobiles Average price of current mod- el'automobiles Is more than $2,OOO: That's what the average clti- aen pald.-foc, the average car purchased within the.lflst two years.

It la generally agreed that Moscow cannot let Tito yet away with hla defiance. It seta a bad precedent, from Russta'e point of view.

Thc question then arises In Moscow about i whether to take direct military action aralnst I Tito. , . . : While a rational approach would discourage I such a move, experts arc by no means convinced that an angry Politburo would act rationally. However, thc end of the winter or earty spring I Is regarded as the time when Moscow Is most : likely to face thc decision whether to use the Red i Army. Then the western powers will be faced with the decision of whether they want to participate actively In the struggle, with all the implications, which are topped by thc unleashing of atomic war. # • * • • VOTE-GETTING STRATEGY—Democrats arc planning to make big political capital of the lobbying investigation to be conducted by the special House committee headed by Rep. Frank Buchanan (D), Pennsylvania. They figure thc hearings, which v.:!l be held early In 1950, will provide fine fodder for the election year attacks on the "vested interests" who seek to sway Congress. However, the Republicans plan to fight back every Inch of the way. They have put their two bic.trst guns In the House—Reps. Charles A. Halleck of Indiana and Carcncc J. Brown of Ohio OB thc committee. • BACON-BREAD BATTLE—Washington officials have made the surprise disclosure that former President Herbert Hoover opposed the break-saving campaigns thc mtir.inlstratlon waged in connee* tlon with World War II and footling prostrate Europe. Hoover is said to have sided with Senator Clinton P. Anderson (D), New Mexico, former Agriculture secretary, who contends that the way to save is to cat bread. Anderson explained that wartime bread saving came mostly from curtailed breakfast toast. But on cutting down on thc toast, he con- tlnued, most Americans ate more eggs and bacon. The senator declared that thc experts have figured the amount ot wheat—or other grain—that goer, into two eggs and two stripe of bacon is the equivalent of thc wheat that should go Into 40 slicee of toast. * • • * • NO WHITE HOUSE M'EIHMNfl IN' aiGIfT—The wort passed around In top official circles Is that Mnrgnrcl Truman definitely hae no wedding plans In mind. The president's daughter Is reported Interested only In her singing career and as having no romantic interests whatever. One Cabinet- officer, in fact, recently offered to wage 925 to it that Miss Truman would not get married In thc next year. • CABINET ATTENTION—Attorney General Howard who has reason to be one of thc busier members of che Cabinet, took time out the other day to pay a ipecia! visit to Capitol Hill.
