Quiz Champ Dan Golenpiml, producer of radio's "Information Please," doesn't see how he can raise the program's music budget from $31.88 to $9564 a performance, as James C. Petrillo's musicians' union is demanding, now that the show is sponsored co-operatively. , So lie's taking his problem to the National Labor Relations Board. This isn't the first time that the militant boss of the musicians has stumped the experts, but it's the first time lie's done it in a spot where such a talent pays off. So, Mr. Golenpaul, how about a set of the Encyclopedia Britannica for Mr. Pctrillo The Real Danger When President Truman asked Congress for discretionary power to impose price controls and rationing, it was only political second nature for '-, tome Republican members to charge , him \vith using "police stitte" meth- .ods. For Mr. Truman, in a n offhand political conference remark a month . *£P, had Said that _ such controls, though sometimes needed, partook of police state techniques, Mr. Truman's remark was rather ill-considered, since government regii- lations operating within the American constitutional framework of checks and balances cannot be dictatorial. For the same reason, Senator Taft's charges that Mr. Truman's proposals marked "the end of economic freedom" and "a step toward a completely totalitarian nation" were both ill-considered and extravagant. Whether or not the President's 10- point program to combat inflation is Wise, it carries no threat to the orderly processes of our government. Congress will grant him only such powers as the majority sees fit. The President ' may veto that grant if he thinks it is inadequate, and try again for something nearer to what he wants. But Congress still has the last word. -The likelihood that Congress will withhold some of the discretionary powers that Mr. Truman requested is Proof enough that dictatorship is uo t imminent. In a police state, the President would have a puppet government. The- real danger, then, is not totalitarianism. The danger is rather that .both parties v/il| sidetrack statesmanship m favor of politics. It was signaled by the reactions which reporters brought down from Capitol Hill after the President's speech. Some congressmen said that Mr Truman had pulled a fast one by ask ing for more than the Kepublican-con- . trolled Congress would possibly grant him, thus putting the blame for high prices and growing inflation on the SST'-X ," SaM lhal the snlartest thing the Republicans could do would b6 to give the President all he had asked for and then let him slew j n his own juice. Still others obviously .figured that the charge of totalitarianism would be the strongest political G » This situation arises' from the condition the exact opposite of totalitar an- Us basic c*use is the freedom with which American citizens are permitted to change their political minds. The result in this case i s a partisan division of authority which invites a partisan tug of war. ^•*,J% faU V S " Ot in the systei "' .. *ut the question is whether the two P«tie» will resist the temptation to indulge in a purely political game. There is the uneasy recollection that theVc have been such performances before that caused momentous rcprecus- sions far beyond the field of domestic political maneuvers. x There seems a chance that our Washington politicians may forget the simple truth that the mistakes which lead to domestic disaster or war are made in the <iuiet and apparent safety of peace. When disaster of war comes, there is nothing left to do but pitch in and work together. But the pound of cure is costly and tragic. We cannot and would not adjourn politics or postpone elections. But we can hope that both parties will remember that there are more immediate concerns than the 1848 elections. The American people are leas interested in .the blame for our presdnt fast ride toward inflation, than they are in a way of stopping it. Our economic and financial health right now will have a profound effect 01: what remains of the twentieth con- tury's history. It can do much to decide whether the world is to have prosperity and peace, or chaos and war. That decision demands selfless, pnrtyless, statesmanlike thought and action from the entire government. The need is for co-operation and a sense of sober responsibility, not for name-calling and finger-pointing. VIEWS OF OTHERS The Key Is fead Money' Secretary 'of Agriculture Anderson has proposed to Oongress that the United States go about the world stimulating food production. His department apparently has formulated an ambitious program. Thai such a nroposni ran iina a tjood deal of favor in Congress is an indication of how far all ot. us have been conditioned to the idea thai the salvation of the world depends very largely on this country giving or guaranteeing through this or thai piece of paternalism. There ar e many people In tills world who want, in fact must have, more food than they are getting. There are a great many other people who might be raising the food and be glad to have those things that those who need the food might fabricate. These people don't get together their mutual benefit. It Is true that, they have been through a war which upset the world. H is nlso true they are suffering from a scries of stupid international political^ decisions which .eliminate traditional economic relationships. But the greater reason is that they have r,o trustworthy medium of exchange It Is as though the man who made mousetraps mid wanted bread hnd to find a farmer with whcal who would give him some lor mousetraps. In fact it Is much worse than thai, because governments rule the most simple transaction. It is as though the mousetrap man and the farmer were prevented from making the exchange until they have the approval of the city council and the mayor. Under such conditions both would be pretty rtiscom-agcd about doing business And many people in llus world are discouraged because the monies ol the world have no validity, not only outside the countries llmt issue them but Inside those countries as welt. The grain of logic In Mr. Anderson's proposal is that people do trust dollars and want them. If they arrx ottered dollars to raise food they probably will do so, bill the catch is now much longer will that Inducement jc necessary. And if currencies were properly reformed would any further inducement be necessary? A thriving trade and production, it is true, must underlie a dependable cunency and apparently the Agriculture Department planners have sonic thought of using dollars to gel trade and production moving. But it has been the experience of history that thriving trade and production alone did not make currencies good. Rather it has been the experience that currency reform stimulated trade and production. Global planners have operated in the Held of finance and produced among other tilings the liiternaioiial Monetary Fund, which was to «t things right, but which on balance has" probably assisted In kcepinj uicm wrong.

Written for NKA Service The Nobel prize has been given for the second time In 25 years 'o research workers In diabetes. The original award was made for tlu> discovery of insulin and the presen; one for the demonstration that other g.'ands and cells, in addition lo the pancreas, are involved in diabetes. The chief difficulty in diabetes Is too much sugar in the blood, which lesults jfrom the failure of the body t^> handle the starch and sugar which Is eaten by the patient. In p normal body, a certain amount of starch and sugar is used as an en- crsy fuel and thc balance Is stored; in diabetics, thc body falls to do either and ill health results After centuries of doubt, blame for the condition was finally placed on the pancreas, when it WHS discovered that removal of this organ resulted in diabetes in experimental animals, Later on, it .was found that the whole gland was not thc cause, but special tissues, called islands of Langcrhans. These islands ol Langerhans, which manufacture insulin, arc small bits of lisbtie scattered throughout the pancreas, When they fail lo supply enough insulin for Ihe patient's needs, diabetes results. Recent discoveries indicate that (here may be several Young diabetics, o'ten males, develop diabetes as a . •• nilt of insulin production failure in a normal appearing pancreas. Diabetes in children is the form in which insulin is of greatest help. Many men ani women in middle age, who hava had diabetes since childhood, are alive and well today as a result of using this remarkable remedy.
