You'Can Make Your Voice Heard in Washington National Affairs Committee of the Blytheville Chamber of Commerce !ia» eom« up with a worthy project in Us Letter Writers Brigade. Committee members have been making; the rounds for the past few weeks getting locul eitw.ens to pledge themselves lo write their Congressman. The committee will study various matter* which lire slated to come befora Congress. They will pass on their recommendations ami a full report of the proposed legislation to members of the Brigade. The committee will also provide the name of the Congressional committee which is studying the matter. It is then up to each individual letter-writer to form his own opinion and TvTite the letter accordingly. We like this idea. In recent years (here has been » distinct impression that the people of the United States have been getting a lot of government by and for the special interests. Ideal way to slop this is to make the voice of the people heard in Washington through direct contact with the lawmakers. We think the Congressmen in most instances will welcome the opinions from back home, too. One suggestion: cadi letter contain the suggestion that the Congressman ('t waste the money to acknowledge the letter. Most of Uie boys on Capitol Hi!! seem awfully eager to prove to the taxpayer that they're on the ball . . . and they seem lo think that acknuwl- L'llgemeni of every postcard is the bs'.st way of proving their point. Churchill Spoils British Efforts or Recovery One of the sadder aspects of tiie oir- rent world scene has been the failure i>f \Vinstun Churchill's Conservative government to make any real headway against Britain's host of problems. Dispatches from London paint a pic- lure of gloom among voters and high government and party officials alike. The recent sequence of Labor Parly victories in local elections has done nothing to dispel the mood. The London Kconomist, one of several publications normally sympathetic to Churchill but now critical, recently summed np the situation: "This ia an indecisive government, and indeciHivenesK is the one quality that could be fatal. . . . When one ask? where the blame for lack of decision is lo be found, the only possible answer is to point to 10 Downing Street." the mo*t unusual thing U tha rea<iin«s« with which so many key Consarvalives admit their failure. Tilt tough British economic dilemma ia really no nearer .solution than 'when they took office last October. Brihiin's problems arc so deep-rooted that no sensible person looked for miracles. But seemingly there has been less aclion than under the often-bewildered Labor regime. Britons today arc debating whether Churchill is a suitable leader for these limes. Apparently Die personal nielh- ods of governing he used so well in World War II are not particularly adapted to the present tortured period of half war-half peace. The grand assurance he brought lo Britain's war effort chides him in today's tangle of troubles. Possibly his age—78—plays a part in this indecision. It may be loo early to pronounce a verdict upon Churchill, but some among his friendliest critics suggest that by nature he was meant for war leadership and no other. They argue llial he is at home with Ihe imperatives of war, with blacks and whites, but not with the shades of gray which baffle Ihe world statesman everywhere in 1052. However this may be, Churchill obviously has no intention of calling a new election soon or even of handing over the reins lo Foreign Secretary Kclen, his mosl likely successor. Now and Ihen a rumor bobs up lhat he might yield the premiership after Queen Klixabcth II is crowned next June. The 1951 Conservative campaign Hounded promising notes. There were to be a revitalized capitalism, with new stress on productivity and moderni'/.ed .plants, nil easing of Ihe austerity, Ihe plague of controls lhat has gripped British life continuously since 193!) and a clearer, more courageous foreign policy flavored with Ihe old Churchillian gusto. Yet austerity is more firmly fastened on Britain than ever, and hardly a start lifts been made toward Uie oilier goals. By his own word it was Churchill's dream to steer Britain to recovery and a sure peace. This achievement he would prize shove all. But his country is growing restive at the halting steps thus far taken. Probably the venerable Conservative leader does not have too many months more to demonstrate his capacity for adventurous leadership through the complexities of semi-war. Voters in this age do not reside long with men who do not act. ..,.";.'..--.... Views of Qthers Not Fair Enough Let's sel straight, that misnomer, "fair trade." It's the nftme given lo a practice which enables n manufacturer and a retailer to Hgree on the price that must be charged tor a product in a "lair trade" state. Other retailers in that stale can't sell the same product-a tube of toothpaste, for exnmple—at R lower price, even though they want to nnd can do rio profitably. IE they rio, they're liable to prosecution. That's the kind nf compulsory price fixing H few thousand special interest boys are trying to work on millions of consumers under the guise of that sugar-sweet, high-sounding "fair trade" approach. This fi&hl has been going on tor years. In 1937. Congress gave a RO ahead to the "fair traders" by exempting price-fixing contracts signed under state "fair trade" legislation from federal miti- ttust law?.. For H years the price fixers were sitting prctly niid today only the District ot Columbia, Tcxsi.s Veinumt and Mi.ssovm do not have ;,uch laws, Last yt'ar, however, the U,S, Supreme Court, kmjopci the ffdcral law which protected the piicc- fixiiif; AY*Ietn.

A rfrent rrpoit showed 208 commonly nsfd products wore hiehrr m "fnir tnide" slates than in the l)i-.trict of Columbia or any ot the states '.vithout "fair tiadc" laws. Congir>s should not o\or-rule the Supreme Court.
