To Those Who Gave Their Blood: Thanks To those \vho responded so magnificently and unselfishly to the Ret) Cross' plea for additional btooS donors, congratulations. It was indeed heartening to see Ihe citizens realize the drastic situation and rise to the occasion. To these people the city owes iU thanks for meeting its 150-pint blood quota for the third consecutive time. But 150 mothers and/or fathers about this nation owe them a botlom-of-lhe- heart gratitude, too. For this blood either will be rushed to Korea as whole blood or will be processed for plasma and then flown to Korea. What little time and trouble it takes to give blood must certainly be worth it in the knowledge that it will mean some men won't be deprived of the medical treatment they deserve. Once again, we would like to commend those who thought more of another's life than their own time. All Talk, No Action, Dulls Red Propaganda Campaign Fur the most part of the world propaganda campaign of the Communists on such matters as alleged germ warfare and mistreatment of prisoners in the Korean theater has proved a fiasco. The Reds are hollering in an empty rain barrel. Reports from Southeast Asia, where the manufacturers of the falsehoods would like to score most heavily, make it clear that these charges have had little effect so far. The only people who are inclined to believe them are Communists, their sympathizers, and those who for one reason or another have a blind hatred of the I'niteil States and thus are willing to give credence to almost any story. The great majority of Asiatics who can read and understand world events —and that total is small proportionately in the southeastern population—pay little heed nowadays to Communist ravings. On the germ warfare question, Ked refusal to allow investigation of North Korean zones, plus scientific evidence marshaled by the United Nations, has served to spike Communist propaganda. As might have been expected, the Keds made more headway with their claims of prisoner mistreatment, largely because of the damaging statements of General Colson, who seemed to be admitting inhuman conduct on our part. Our case was not aided by the prisoners' capture of (Jeiieul Dodd. It tost us con- siderabla "face" amuug the Southeast Asians. Vet in spite of this harm suffered, \ve are not generally losing ground these days in the propaganda battle for non- Red areas of Asia. Quite the contrary. The best-informed Asiatics in lands like Judo-China, liurma, Thailand, Indonesia and India are becoming pretty fed up with Communist chatter. Too many times they have been able to compare Ked claims with Ked refusal to have those claims investigated. Too many times the mere course of events has disproved outrageous charges. The feeling is growing .strong in Southeast Asia that the Keds are talking, but not performing. For many months now, they have made no significant new showing of power in that part of the world. In that circumstance, their words sound limp and flabby, and few non-Communists are disposed to accept them. \V'e i>f the western world have always greatly feared the force and impact of Red propaganda. Often our fears have been justified. P.ut we are learning that a hopped-up diet of lies can jade the palates even of people whose poverty and general low estate make them mot susceptible to such tempting fare. Readers' Views To llie Editor; There hasn't been much said lately about how we are to get a new sewer system, but a lot has been said nbout how we must buy the Water Company if wu arc to gel a sewer system. It seems to me that- whe« it was being talked about, after the engineering survey was made and imid tor by the city, it was determined that a first class sewer .system would cost over JOOQ.tXXl.OO, Now if this is the case, then why must the cili- ZKIIS ul Blytheville go in debt for $1.300,000.00, to buy » KHlcr system and owe for that, and have to pay on it for SO years, when nil we really want and need is a sewer system to protect the health of the people? Besides all this, if the city pays such a high price lor the water company, then how is it going to finance a sewer system and when is a tewer system going to be built? The people are entitled to know this, and they are entitled to know why it Is necessary for us to go into debt twice lor just one sewer system, Also, I hear that most cities that have built A sewer system from revenue bonds have assessed * pretty heavy fee to pay for the sewer system. I understand that the people of Jonesboio pay about 15 per cent surcharge on their water bills every month in order to pay for their .sewer system even though Jone.sboro owns Its own water system. It looks like we are blindly going Into buying the water system without Snowing what it anything is going to be done about n sewer system and when it will be done. I hope you will pvint this letter so the people will find out. for themselves that they Eire not getting H free sewer system Just by buying the water company, but will more than likely pay a lot more for lc.« in the long run.

Randall, 61-year-old resident of Inland Steel Co., looks ere like a college profe.s-sor or a linister than the Harvard lawyer and iron master that he really is. Yet he is something of n teacher and a preacher, too. The lesson and the sermon he delivers most often is rin saving the free enter- j _ . „, prise system. He! Peter Ldson lhi|]ks it ls nn , rial before the world and possibly j ightin$r a rear-guard action. Mr. Randall first leaped into na- lonal prominence as the new a posit* and philosopher of American •mines* during the 1949 steel strike ver pensions. Appear ing before a hrec-tuan presidential board nam- d to investigate this dispute, Mr, lanclall declared: "When the President, announced hir, board, it was an industrial re- olution in America. Collective bar- fining has been destroyed. II has ieen inpealef! by the President. "And if this union strategy works his time, collective bargaining \vill never come back. The precedent here established, reflecting attempts in 1946. would commit us o boards and government wage ixlng forever." HOW RIGHT Mr. Ramiiill has been in that prediction thus fur is n by vrcent experience in the new steel wage case. In this dispute. Mr. Randall was radio and .sjon spokesman for the entire industry in answeritm President Tyumen's fireside chat to the nation on seizure of the mills to prevent a .strike. Mt R[ind;tll snys he has received n eient deal of mail since his ap- pea ranee over the air waves. Nearly all of his letters have been favorable. Complete strangers who have recognized him from his TV appear-1 ance have come to him and told; him how much they approved. He has been surprised, he declares, at Ihp understanding of the constitutional and fundamental questions im tilved. Clarence Randal! has been expounding and developing his ideas on management and labor relations over the past five years. He has made n number of speeches to tn- UuMrial groups. He has written a number of articles for magazines. He IIRS a book coming out soon, collecting his best pieces and adding some nc.v.' ones. • * • A REVIEW ot his public nlter- f.nccE—which he insist' on writing himself, without benefit of a ghost —can be made to show that he 's an extreme liberal on some things, an extreme conservative on others. "We know so little about the mass behavior of human beings." Mr. Randall confessed in a speech before Controllers' Institute two years age "Why will n fine American, who loves his family and goes to church . . . take tu-o feet of gaspipc antv lay it across another's head on thf picket line? . . , '•The old school of thought in industry was that, an increase in pay did it all. It doesn't. All of the great urea of motivation as distinguished from pay is almost a closed book to us in industry." Writing in the Atlantic Monthly. Mi Rnndall hail declared earlier : "Those who champion the right r>[ j free workers to strike must likewise j champion the right of free men in management to say 'No!' In the face I of a strike." And in a 1350 speech before Congest of American Industry he de- ieliircd, "The thing which today . . . threatens freedom In Industrial re! lations Is the annoyance of the pub- lic with strikes." • * • THE IDEA of "Why don't we have judges to resolve these disputes?" Mr. Randall declares to he false thinking. "We must either bargain freely RS free men, or abandon the fight and let the state enter the relationship," he said. IT there had been free bargaining ;<i the present steel dispute, without government interference, Mr. Randall believes that steel prices might have advanced about S5 or 56 a ton, had the unions accented management's best offer ot a 12 \ : > cents- an-hour increase. But he does not believe that steel price rise could hold for long. "There is no shortage of steel." UP asserts. It will take some time (o absorb -present over-expanded steel l,roc*uction capacity. Warehouses are fur. o! consumers' goods that have been over-produced. * • • IS THE country headed for general deflation? Will there be anoth-, er depression to readjust prices and vnpes on a lower level? Mr. Randall says these are searching questions to which he CIOCE not know the full answers. He pt ints, however, to the fact that textile workers have voluntarily taken wage cuts. Stores in many steel (owns, he , | say.s. have been hard hit. Families haven't been spending. They have been saving—partially through four of another strike, like that of 1949, which .shut down the industry for seven weeks. To Mr. Randall, these ore signs that people don't want strikes, particularly those forced on them by union leaders seeking only to expand their power. For management, however. Mr. Hnnciali seems perfectly willing (o take a strike in the steel industry to defeat the union shop demand. "This is the ultimate showdown,' he declares.

It's n cinch that your partner will rely on you for strength, because of your free bid. and he will therefore tend lo get you into high contracts. In today's hand South made a free bid. with a 6-5-1-1 distribution but vuth only a couple ot jacks in South to ruff. South decided, prop erly enough, to establish his own hand and therefore led the jack o diamonds at the third trick. \Ves covered with the king of diamonds and dummy won with the ace. Declarer now fell on his nose by returning urnmy's low diamonc East stepped up with the queen o diamonds and had no trouble in seeing that the contract could be defeated only if the defense could get two trump tricks. East SEIW that the best chance was to return his last diamond in the lope that South had bid on distri-j bution and that his partner could ruff with the ace ot spades. ! East's analysis was perfectly correct. West ruffed with the ace of pades, and East later got the queen of spades for the setting trick. Declarer would have made the contract if he hud played the hand properly. After winning in dummy with the ace of diamonds, he should ruff a heart to get to hts own hand and should then lead a trump towards dummy. If West puts up the ace of spades he is then unable to ovemiff dummy on the third round of diamonds. If West plays his low trump, dummy wins with the king of spndes and returns a trump to clear the suit.'.s best defense is to lead the fourth round of hearts, but dummy can take, the punch. Now n low diamond is returned from the dummy and East can take the queen ot clhimouds but no more.
