After the Hearing, Av New Understanding Perhaps rather far from its original purpose was a significant effect of the Mississippi River valley hearings conducted here last week. For us a result both drainage and wildlife interests found » common ground where they could amicably air their problems. The wide areas of understanding revealed at the hearing came as somewhat of a surprise to many wKo have viewed as irreconcilable druinnge and wildlife problems. A member of the Corps of Engineers' staff said, "I never thought either (side) would so openly discuss their problems within hearing distance of the other." But for a long time there has been quite a bit of misunderstanding between the two. Wildlife interests thought all land owners were interested in turning the countryside into a desert with more and more drainage. Land owners were sure, on the other Imnd, that left alone the wildlife people would surely inundate every farm in the area. Thus prejudiced, neither could very well listen to the other's urgumnels even momentary. Some of the charges and contercharges arising from this situation often were ridiculous and even comic, were it not lor the importance of the issues. No one but competent engineers can answer the question, but we are of (he opinion that in this case the farmers and sportsmen of this area may have their cake and eat it, too. There is no reason to believe a stable water level in Big Lake can't be brought about without impairing drainage. And at the same time, siltation, enemy of both drainage and wildlife interests, may be worked on jointly for the benefit of all. American Economy Walter Reuther, president of the CIO wha .'s never happy unless he is •unhappy about something, says the American economy is :« serious straits. There is a considerable body of evidence to suggest that economic conditions are a good deal better than they were at the low point in the 1953-54 decline. And even at bottom level, a man like Sen. Paul Douglas, who surely did not take the optimistic view, shied away from describing the situation as g "depression." But Reuther never has allowed himself to be pampered by the evidence. If figures do not prove what he thinks they should, he simply discard them and gets a set of his own. For some years now he has waged a consistent campaign to discredit all labor statistics which do not bear his personal stamp. Reuther professes to he chiefly troubled by unemployment. In the view of most who know something about the problem, it has not been in recent times and is not now is grim a matter as he proclaims it. This does not mean that any citizen or any public official should take any 1 amount of joblessness lightly or casually. To a man out of work it is no comfort to be told that unemployment is dwing and is now "in hand." Effort to employ all the employable should never let up, But, as suggested, & good many economists and others see the present prospect as reasonably bright and getting brighter. A few even dare to forcast that within a few years the United States may actually be sufferings labor shortage rather than a surplus. They hang this prophecy on a freak . of the U. S. population structure which is expected to bring fewer new people into the working force, proportionately, then will be added to the total population in the next 10 years. According to this view, we will not have enough manpower to satisfy the expanding needs of our swelling numbera. If we are not merely to maintain but lift our standard of living in the years ahead —as we have always managed to do— then they say we must have improvements in machinery and business techniques on a huge scale. Thus we can offset manpower deficiencies. There's been a lot of talk about "automation" or pushbutton factories as a possibly grave menace to employment But if the men who foraee a labor shortage are right, obviously we'll need all the automation we can get. Of course we have no proof that these particular forecasters will turn out to be right. But if they are perhaps extremely optomistic, many other economists are at the least moderately BO. Very few share the special reservation Walter Reulher has established for himself, where the economy is ftlwayi in trouble and all the colors are dark. VIEWS OF OTHERS Wrath Justified If the cxcerpta he quoted to the prem the other day fire typical of the material Included in a teachers manual In use In the State of Virginia, it is no wonder Gov. Thomas B. Stanley got upset and ordered It revised. He cited the following pa.saaBes in a section entitled "Bases of th« Course of Study, Ainu of Education"; "Minorities, organized for advancing all types of nclrish interests, attempt to control the government, but those with the greatest resources havt the advantages. . . . "Powerful minorities secure their special Interests by subsidizing political parties, Investing In propaganda and by controlling the officials of the school, church and press ... "The minority of wealth derived from business and Industry has succeeded the landed aristocracy." From a section purporting to have to do with understanding the operation of modern business and industry. Governor Stanley quoted these passages: "The material prosperity of the modern world has been attained under the captialistlc system. "Capitalism Is based upon the principle of profit to the owner rather than service to th« masses of the people. "The capitalistic system Is not planned and lacks direction; tnus waste and economic cycles result. "Natural resources are exploited for profit. "The dependence a( the laborer upon capital tends to reduce him to « service status.' Of course, there Li some basis in fact [or statements such as these but they are in reality i combination of untruth find distortion of the facts. They tend to give an entirely erroneous overall Impression of the real facts of American life. At the very least they would make the youthful mind suspicious of the every system which had given him a safe and healthy birth and enable him to grow up to receive a free public school education. The Governor's comment was mild: "This Is an astounding revelation. We cannot plant the seeds of distrust and suspicion in the minds of our future citizens and preserve the American way of life." Indeed we cannot. It obviously is true that the contents of the Virginia teacher's manual must represent the view of at least a few persons engaged in education. It is more than po&iible that a few such persons are writing textbooks (or use Ui the public schools. Heavens forbid that a scoial science textbook written for the Junior high and the high school level should contain auch distortions. It behooves both educators and parents to be on the look out for such insidious material.—Greenville (S. C.) Piedmont. SO THEY SAY I felt close to God for a minute. —Hcv. T. R.

The Shout Heard 'Round the World Pttir Idson't Wathingion Column — Danger of War Over Formosa Stressed by Dulles' Comments WASHINGTON — (NEA) — Three times In recent days, Secretary of Slate John Foster Dulles has gone out of his way to stress the danger of war over Formosa. Returning from his trip to Southeast Asia, the Secretary told his press conference; ". . .It would seem tia though it was quite possible at least that the Chinese Communist* do not Intend to stop until It it apparent they are stopped by superior resistance." In Ottawa he told the Canadian Parliament that he had returned from the Orient with a grave sense of foreboding;. The Chinese Communists, he declared, were emotionally determined to drive the Went out of Asia. On his way back to Washington Secretary Dulles stopped in New York to receive nn award from the Advertising Club. He said that "Chinese Communist methods may yet prove more dangerous and provocative of war" than the Russian, indirect methods of aggression. Secretary Dulles concluded his New York speech by saying that, "With national unity under the calm iinu strong leadership of President Elsenhower. I remain hopeful that peace will prevail." Thli one reassuring* utterance is overshadowed, however, by the three much more alarming warnings preceding. They may have been Intended to make the Chinese Communist leaders stop and think before launching an attack) on Quemoy and Matsu. But they " equally served notice on the American people to be prepared for another war in the Far East. From Dec. 8, 1954, when Red China's Premier Chou En-lal announced the Communists' intention to "liberate" Formosa and demanded that the United States withdraw its forces from the area, It ha.s been evident that this could be the start of World War III. The prospect of such a war has been consistently discounted in Washington up to now. It has been hoped that by some lucky break war could be avoided. Continuing cold war and war of nerves have, of course, been expected. The posslblity of stumbling Into a. limited war, by accidental Incident,, has been ever present But a hot war WHS considered unlikely because it was felt that Red China and Russia did not want It and were not ready for It. The fact that a hot war has now become more likely, as evidenced by the three statements from Secretary Dulles, may alter a lot of things in Washington. The domestic American political effect has to be considered. Up to now the Eisenhower administration has taken credit for ending the fighting In Korea. To have the fighting start up a (rain In the Formosa straits would not be good. The way thincs shape up now, the United States would have to go it rtlone in a Formosa war. Any reliance on even token help from the United Nations would be out. The possibility of a new war with Red China over Formosa has revived in Washington the argument that the Korean war was a good place to wear down, the Communists. The que*Uon of whether a new Formosan war would restart the Korean war arises. It was only when the fighting In Korea stopped that Red China felt safe to concentrate on the conquest of Viet Nam. And as soon as the fighting stopped there, the Chinese Com' munists prepared for attack on Formosa. There are sharply differing viewi on how a Formosa war might end. There Is no great enthusiasm for such a war In the U. S. today. One view is that the United States might stay out of such a war. just as Russia stayed out of the Korean war. The actual fight- Ing would be left to Nationalist and Communist Chinese. Another view Is that by enter ing such a war and by the use of atomic weapons, the United States could force a decision within a few days — a few weeks — a few months. The other extreme view Is that the only way for the United States to avoid such a war is to pull the plug on the Chinese Nationalist cause and let it go down the drain. the Doctor Says - B) , ~ ',.

The Wltnet: A jobless movie actor, eating a cheap meal in a restaurant far from Hollywood and Vine, was horrified when he recognized a waiter as a one-time actor pal. "Ye Gads," he said, "YOU, a waiter in this Joint?" "Yes," h« replied with dignity, for eight tricks even with a worthless dummy. As it happened, of course, the dummy was far from worthless Harold Ogust. the North player, couldn't tell the exact nature ol his partner's hand, but he could feel reasonably sure that there would be a play for 12 tricks no matter what South held. There was no point to "scientific" bidding. Ogust wanted to be in a slam, so he just bid it. East's double was silly. If both of his aces took tricks, the double would produce 100 points more than a pass. It stood to lose more, for Moyse promptly redoubled. When Moyse made his contract, it turned out that the double had cost 500 points. Tills was far too big a loss to risk when the possible gain -was only about 100 points. There was nothing much to the play of the cards. Declarer took dummy's three high spades, discarding a club from his hand. He then took the ace of clubs and cross - ruffed clubs and diamonds.
