Meditation And now for what do I watt? My hope la i In thee.—Psalms 39:7. • r • • the world's ireatesi hop* was In the birlh «f the Christ Child and »ince then there Is hup* to the birth of every child. With such a lineup, the third-party hopeful might have trouble financing his campaign.' But perhaps a way will be found. A logical source of money would be some of the licswy contributors to the Republican campaign chest. Their aid might permit Mr. Wallace to split the vote for President. And, if his Communist supporters echoed his endorsement of "progressive" Democratic candidates for Congress, the kiss of cfealli would be on those aspirants. H seems to us that the Republicans would be suckers not to help Mr. Wallace carry out his announced mission. Dollars to Doughnuts He Gets Through AIJ Right Senate CdUCUS Scene of Many • Melodramas Akin to Hollywood Turnabout If you don't think the world is progressing in all directions, consider the Chicago newspaper strike. Time was, and well within the memory of mortal men, when a lot of newspaper men were reluctant to sign contracts willi their printers. There even were strikes which resulted from that reluctance. But now the six Chicago iwners want a contract. They insist on one. But the. printers, are even more insistent; they've struck rather than sign one. All of which fulfills that famous definition of news. Third Party Prospects Henry A. Wallace says he is "sick of having the Communists get the credit> for every constructive proposal made by American progressives." That seems'».little ungracious of him. For, just two .days before he made this statement in a speech at Cornell University, a prominent Communist tossed a large bouquet of credit to Mr. Wallace. And Mr. Wallace, by his own admission,' is one v of America's leading progressives. v The Communist was William Z. Foster, national chairman of the party. "He told a New York audience that "the top labor leadership in this country should leani a few facts of political life from the speeches of Henry Wallace. Mr. Wallace is 'making a states- manljke record by so clearly and valiantly pointing out to labor and the American people the fatal obj'ectives to which American policy is leading." Mr. Foster paid Mr. Wallace the further compliment of borrowing some of his ideas and words in discussing that policy. Mr. Foster talked of "Wall Street imperialism" and "reactionary capitalism," just as Mr. Wallace does. ^He spok& of "reactionary imperialists •who are' now dictating the American foreign policy, a policy which can lead only to^conomic, political and moral disaster." That is almost word-for- word Wallace. So the Communists aren't trying to take credit when they repeat JMr, Wallace's "progressive" views, though they sometimes may have credit forced upon them. The Foster speech was so laudatory of Mr. Wallace as to amount to an endorsement of his third-party candidacy—if and when. And Mr. Wallace is still for a third party. He hasn't said he would be its \ presidential candidate, doubtless because there is no national third party at present to offer him the nomination. But he told a press conference in Syracuse thai-he would do all he could to help a third ticket. We 'don't know what existing organization Mr. Wallace is counting on for support, if he decides to give Mr. Truman and the Republican candidate .a run for it. But he^ can easily find several that he can't ^count on. He hasn't got the CIO or AFL leaders. That's certain. A. F. Whitney has come out for Mr. Truman—the .same Mr. Truman that the railroad union president was going to beat, even if it cost §50,000,000. He hasn't got the Americans for Democratic yAction, which includes lira. Eleanor Roosevelt among its influential headliners. And the last time ' ' New York's.left-wing American Labor Party i as heard fromi it wasn't for *, -' x ,-Mr. Wallace either. So that leaves Mr. & f~ Wallace with the Progressive Citizens of 'America and, apparently, Uhe Com,, HU&iat Party in his camp. Period. VIEWS OF OTHERS The Only Real Pattern A few days ago a full-page advertisement headed "Pattern for Labor Peace" appeared In a number ol metropolitan dallies. In It an Imaginary employer sets forth the case for his company in a talk to his linnelnnvy employees, who have just taken a strike vote on tiie issue of higher wages. The speaker presents a clear and simple "pcnny-by-penny" breakdown of every dollar available to tlie company—so much lor goods ' and services bought from others, so much for \vagCB and salaries, so much for taxes, so much. to icplace worn-out tools (machinery), and finally, so much 1ft to be divided bclweciv payment (profits) for tlie use of tlie tools to those who own them (stockholders) and any Increase In wages to the workers. As a piece of "copy" the ad Is superb. As a simple dramatization of a serious problem which the American economy laces—the lag in new capital goods (tools for production)—it Is excellent. As a paper demonstration of how employers might bring their employees Into a common understanding of some of the elements ol their common welfare it Is most effective. It is good reading for management and labor circles alike. But It Is offered ns a pattern for labor peace. Thus It calls lor examination In a considerably broader frame of reference. So viewed, it is not a pattern. It Is Just one Important and yell- designed pait of a pattern, dependent for usefulness on some very fundamental conditions. Only a portion of Its. limitations stem from the fact that its case is not wholly proof against* some informed objections—notably from Industry. Its chief limitation grows from something else. The reduction of the 'ai'guuient to a few dis- pationate, properly audited figures at first lures one toward saying, "It's as simple as that." But any experienced employer understands, and most of Ills workers know intuitively, that, almost all of those figures arc determined in part by ttic judgment, ability, integrity, and general outlook of people. ' Have tlie raw materials been bought at, best possible advantage? Are management salaries and bonuses reasonable? Is tlie company administrative machinery "tight" and cflicicnt? Arc the various reserves set aside no larger than good practice demands? If the speech so ably worded In llils ad were delivered by an employer to his employees against a solid background of mutual will'and Must, it could accomplish much, such frank discussions could help to build such a back- THE DOCTOR SAYS By Edwin P.

No matter how one goes at this matter of labor pcac, tlie paths all lead ultimately to something as simple and as nrofund as Christianity Itself. Many years ago the founder of this newspaper, Mary Baker Eddy, asked and answered a question thus; To the sore question. "What are the working men's rights?" Science answers, justice and mercy, wherein the financial, civil, social, moral and religious aspect of all tuies- tlons reflect the face of the Father. And this question will not rest till both employer atin employee are actuated by the spirit ol this saving of the meek nnri mighty Son ot God: "Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you. do yo even so to them." (Excerpt (rom address read before the World's Parliament ol Religions in Chicago In 1803.) Granted, the Golden Rule is an abstraction until applied. The willingness to apply It, nevertheless, remains the most ixitent solvent for the problems ol human relationships mankind has ever found. For it is "God-given. Here we may rightly say, "It's as simple as that." Here stands something neither labor nor management can ever afford to forget—the only real pattern for peace. —CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR. benefits.
