Wide Open Field We live in a country that depends more and more on technical advances, not only for its safety in a hostile world but for it's economic well-being. Yet »pparently we aren't developing enough technicians to keep pace with our expanding needs, According to the United Slates Office of Education, American colleges this spring will turn out about 23,000 engineering graduates. Thnt may sound like quite a few but in fact'it's less than five percent more than represented in the class of '54—which was a postwar low. Worse still, our principal competitors, the Russians, are reliably reported to be producing more than 50,000 new engineers a year. And the word is they are stepping up the lotnl. America's production of technical men looks even sadder when set beside the projected need. An organization known as the Engineering Manpower Commission estimates the total 1955 need for new engineers at from 45,000 to 70,000, So our deficit in this field as of June this year will range from 20,000 to 47,000, depending on whether one wishes to be conservative or liberal. The commission forsees some rise in the number of U. S. engineering graduates, perhaps to 35,000 a year by 1956. But meantime our need undoubtedly will have gone on increasing, and (his total still will be inadequate. Now we can't force more people lo to study engineering, as the Russians can whenever they decide to boost dice pace. But there must be many things we can properly do to increase interest in engineering among our young men. It is a field bulging with opportunities. Engineering in exciting new areas like atomic energy and electronics beckons brightly to many. The men who work in these and other developing new fields will quite literally hold a considerable part of the future of this country in their hands. Concreted effort should be made by both government and industry to lift the output Of engineers to a level closer to our true need. Scholarships and financial aids of other sorts should be offered on an increasing scale. Much more should be said publicly about the engineering shortage, especially by men in high places who have the responsibility for advancing this nation's welfare. And while we are making the country more aware of the problem, we should endeavor to halt the considerable waste of good engineering manpower which somehow or other has been shunted off into other work. Some say many engineers are performing nontechnical jobs in the Army. A /»ir reservoir of talented men may exist among foreign refugees admitted to thii country. A West Coast firm recently found on«, an Austrian, who had been working as a bus boy. We think of ourselves as the greatest technical masters of modern day. If we are now, we won't be for long unless we find ways to make up this serious deficiency in engineering manpower. Political Expediency If there's any idea that political expediency is a peculiarly American thing, one needs only to observe what the British Labor Party did recently with respect to its boy, leftwinger Aneurin Bevan. Bevan earlier had been bounced from the party's parliamentary group for contemptously challenging the Labor leader, Clement Atllee, in public.'But the party didn't vote full expulsion. Later, when he apologized, its national committee decided to accept his pledge of future good behavior. The reason the ouster move was stopped in midstream: to throw Bevan all the way out would greatly to sharpen the already deep split in the parly ranks and probably to make the Laborites easy victims of the Conservatives in, the likely event they call an election this year. VIEWS OF OTHERS Lowly Male's Financial Status The banks are willing to concede that they hive been—well, not ignoring, but overlooking the little woman. In » survey covering 8,000 interviewers, a banking research firm discovered (1) the wife enters into 49 per cent of the decisions on which bank to use; and (2) Wives do ns much banking ns men—36 per cent—arid as a partner in the murtSil team they »re more than equally Influential. This bit of Information Intrigues us because . (1) we were under the Impression wives marie nil the decision on which bank tc use; and (2) We thought that wives did considerably more than 38 per cent of the banking alone. This survey may have a reverse significance since it proves that men still have a voice In the family finance. It gives a solid boost to the sometimes financially bcd-ragglod male ego.—Shelby (N.C.) Dally Star. ABIue"Moon1er' Astronomer John P.

Its 304-pnge report has just been filed after 18 months of preparation by numerous work groups of professors and antitrust lawyers. Its recommendations are almost impossible to find. But advance orders from Judges, attorneys and students indicate the report will become a legal best seller. Judge Stanley M, Barnes, as- fii.stant attorney general in charge of Ihe Department of Justice Antitrust Division and co-chairman of the rommitten of 01, says that its recommendations for ten law chnngrs and 50 out of fill administrative procedures chitiij.'c.s will inulerlally • sir my then antitrust law enforc'cnu'iit. Louis B. Schwartz, profo.SMjr of ld\v »l Univor.-iity of Ppnn.'iylvnniii, in n general dissent al Ihe end o.f tht' report, says that the mn.iority view "would wrakrn the iintitrust laws in n number ol" respects, nnd, i>von more important, it finis to adopt, ntMTSMiry inra.MUTS for strrnjilhiMilii:; the law so UK to crenlo n Iruly compi'tifivt' economy In the country." Between' two oxln-mes, anyone can dike his pick. As n matter of fact, (lint's \vhot miiny of the til members do. It is ,of course impossible to ^ct 6] law- yers to agree on anything. This report is liberally larded with dissents. Judge Barnes himself, the U. S. government's chief antitrust enforcement officer, admits that he dissented from majority Views in many instances. Principal architect of the report is S. Chesterfield Oppenhetm, professor of law at University of Michigan, the committee'?; other co-chairman, With an admitted 27 years' experience in antitrust law, Professor Oppenheim has done considerable lecturing and writing for antitrust law reform. The basic principle of the report, however, is that: "Although many forces and other government policies have materially promoted our creative American economy, we believe the antitrust laws r e 111 n 1 n one of the most Important." In other words, the antitrust are here to stay. The committee did not set out deliberately lo wreck them, as it was nt first t eared they mi<;ht do. The report itself Is not tact- finding but opinion. It. has no official .standing as government policy. It is an advi.sory report lo the Attorney General. He can \vriie a report of his own to the President, agreeing or disagreeing with committee recommendations. It will then be up to the President to recommend to Congress whtit change's he thinks should be made in nntitriLst law. What Con- gress'will do about it is anybody's guess, but It is now considering Erskine Johnson IN HOLLYWOOD HOLLYWOOD — (NEA) — Ex- clusivley Yours: Liberace's medics have ordered him to take It easy on his late April Las Vegas engagement and before starting his Warner movie, "Sincerely Yours." He gave them something to worry about when he collapsed in New York and had to bow out of three shows. Big reason for medical concern is previous bouts with pneumonia and his more recent physical breakdown. Not in the Script: Marlon Brando fluffed a couple of lines the first day of "Guys and Dolls' with Director Joe Mankiewicz explaining to Sam Goldwyn, ."He's nervous." "I know." replied Sam.

This is Hollywood, Mrs. Jones: Janet and Tony Curtis decided a live TV appearance by a film star rates a cocktail party. SO they're tossing one for Rory Calhoun and his "bravery" after his Climax Show appearance. some reforms of its own. The committee recommended no changes in the basic sections of the (i5-year - old Sherman law. No changes were recommenecl on the lnw governing mergers nor on the patent 'provisions of antitrust law The 61 experts completely passed the buck by recommend ing ,to Congress that i'. investigate labor union practices trait mighl lead to restraint of trade. Thi.= was apparently too hot a potato to hnndle below tiie law-making level. . Recommendations to repeal the Mlller-Tydings "Fair Trade" law and tiie McOuire amendment which forces the charging of fixed retail prices on all distributors will be hailed by consumers, but damned by producers and many dealers. Authorizing the Attorney General to issue a "civil investigative demand" for [he production of documents in antitrust case examinations, brfoi-n Rnintl jury probes, is a brand-lie'-' -search warrant idea in American law. Pixinpr antitrust statue of limitations at four years is an average view of the committee. Chans- in-,- ol penalties should men little opposition. This covers ending of compulsory treble damages, and increasing of criminal penalty maximum from $5000 to $10.000. The House of Representatives has just voted to increase this maximum penalty to 550,000, which makes the committee's rec- tmmiiMulaUon rather mild. Television is on the trail of Greta, again.
