Expense Delaying Action On Zoning of Blytheville' Although It has been freely admitted for several years that Blytheville needs an ordinance concerning it, zoning continues to be one of the city's major problem R. To the average citizen, zoning may • appear to be a problem that arises only occasionally and which can continue to be staved off by piecemeal action on in- dividual cases. Previous city administritioni have recojrnized the problem for what it actually i», but have been reluctant to act. . Now a solution appear* to be bogged down in the city's nose-above-water financial status. Mayor Dan Blodgett said at * Council meeting this month that the problem had been discussed but that the city has no funds with which to employ the necessary engineering advice. Zoning is as touchy a subject »s it Is necessary, and we agree that expert advice is needed and should be obtained before an ordinance is passed. An un- zoned city is better off than a poorly- zoned one. . The services of an outside party acquainted with municipal engineering problems is necessary to keep the matter of zoning from becoming embroiled in political bickering as to whose property winds up where. As a city grows, the need for proper zoning becomes more necessary. W e hope that rosier financial days for the city are not too far off so this can be done. Foreign Aid Economizers Miss Margin of Safety Since the Marshall Plan was born in 1947, it and its successor programs have been an annual target for alleged congressional "economizers." II is therefore nothing new that this has happened again in 1952. In the current instance, the administration asked for ?7.9 billion for foreign military and economic aid in the year starting July 1. House and Senate committees reduced this total by .?! hit- lion, a not unreasonable gesture in the light of past experience with the program. This was not enough to sRtisfy foreign aid critics in the House, however, and they proceeded to hack another .JT26 million off the figure, bringing it below ?6.2 hillinn. Among the so-called economy bine on this issue are numerous lawmakers who make no pretense of their distaste for any foreign aid at all. There are others who fee! the same but haven't the courage to say so and thus givt Up •ervic* to ths program while voting to cut it severely. A more important group than either of these is compromised of men who seem sincerely to understand the need for foreign aid yet still are convinced there is no hnrm in drastic cuts. The Into Senator Vandenborg, who labored so valiantly for the Marshall- Plan in its beginnings, likened this approach to that of tossing a 15-foot rope to a man drowning 30 font off shore. The weakness, of these sincere economizers is that they have little lint their own opinions to offer in support of these sharp reductions. They find it unite easy to state arbitrarily that the move "will in no way <-mi;ir)tfr>r the security of this country." That is pretty confident talk for men who have so slight a foundation of evidence to back them up. The testimony of the men on the scene, the men most deeply concerned with executing foreipn air! programs mid observing tlicir effect upon our own and our allies' future, almost unanimously falls in-tlie other direction. Tliey declare there would indeed be danger in too severe cuts. Certainly few programs presented to Congress are immune lo reasonable reductions. The forein'i aid hills always have been trimmed, and probably it was right thnt they were. But the exercise of prudence is a far cry from license to slash H program to pieces. The blunt truth is most of the economizers, including the sincere ones, nre acting from ignorance, or indifference to uncomfortable facts. They make up their minds to cut, and that is that. In their powerful compulsion to reduce this piuKram — an urge which never seems to seize them when flood- control outlays and other homo district matters come up—they blind themselves to security risks. They dismiss them by stating flatly that they do not exist. But their saying it doesn't make it so. In most cases, the primary rule of security is to provide a margin of safety, to buttress your strength with more than you need, to err on the "up" side. What strange argument it is that tells us we can do just the opposite and feel perfectly safe. What effrontery there is in provincial lawmakers assuring us sve have nothing to fear. There may indeed be less danger of war than some of our experts imagine, •But the average American wants assurance of that from people whose guesses are informed, not from men who accept only the facts which support their opinions.

This brings up the matter o£ how that a t atnment was put together, and what's In it. rhla is tho best wny to get a con- iDnscd version of ivhnt Mr. Other elcr Ed son Republican stands for. nov.' a .subject of endless controversy. The Idea tor this 1P50 GOP policy statement originated with General Eisenhower himself, in September, 1040. Eisenhower was then president of CohmiMn University. He telephoned Repuhlican National Committee Chnirmnn Guy Georpc Gabriel son, pnying: "I hope the Republicans now will develop party principles so that even a per son as dumb as I am will be able to tell the difference between the Republican arirt Democratic pnriies."

Under these circumstances it U nnt surprising that business advisory services nre do voting much of their attention these rinys to developing prosrsms T vhich promise some return nn the corporate tax dollar. Without quf-Mion the tn.v asciits should be able to pick snmp chicken feed nut of the ent-er- tainmpnt and travel deductions claimed by snIns- mo n and business executives.

He wanted a group made up of members of the National committee and the Senate and House Republican policy commlttee5 to do the drafting, • * » SENATOR TAFT informed Gabrielson he wan f 1 atly opposed to the whole idea of drafting a new statement of party policy. Taft refused to name a sub-committee of senators for Gabrielson. Chairman Gabrielson then decided to gonhead on his own. He named a 15-member committee of state leaders to draw up K mld-torm platform. On it were such Repub- «•• ays regarti themselves as custo- riians of party policy between national conventionfi. AiYyvay. this A96Q policy statement opened with a declaration that the Republican party aimed "to win a lasting peace - . . and to hold aloft the Inspiring torch ol American freedom." In effect. It repudiated bi-partl- 53n foreign policy and called for "vigilant, critical exploration of administration foreign policy," On domestic policy, tt- declared the major issue is "liberty against socialism." Then it slated specific farm, civil right* .loyalty and other programs. • • * THE NEXT party hasscl over this platform arose when Sen. Margaret coast, telethon .June 21 to raise funds for the U. S.

The combined hands therefore contain far more than hall of the high cards and almost half of the trumps. How can South make eight tricks against, this combination? West opened the ace of clubs am continued the suit. East winning with the Jack, East easily recognized the lead as an attempt at a ruff with a double ton, so he returned low club at onc« for West (o ruff. West knew thai Ess* still had the king of clubs and that South atill hari a losing club, w the right defense was easy for him In find. He returned a trump, allowing East to clear the trumps out of the dummy. South still had to lose another club in addition to the two red ace». Declarer therefore won only six tricks, suffering a penalty of 3fW points. This was quite satisfactory to West in view of the (act that his side had no earne. The importance of West'* double is best, seen if we note what hap' pens if West passes Ihe overcall nf two spades, What Is East to do then?
