It Is ridiculous'for any man to criticize on the »orks of another who has not distinguished himself by his on-n performances.—Joseph Acliii- son. Made for the Job The Minister of Industry and Lnliov in the new Burmese cabinet is n man named U Win. If work ever gels slack in Burma, he sounds like the ideal fellow to conduct further negotiations with John L. Lewis over here. Coals to Newcastle some union or other, and strikes nre not noticeably fewer than they were before. ' AH of which leads to the conclusion, often expresseu before, that the system of government is less important than the people who operate it- Socialism and communism may sound fine in theory. But the American system and private capitalism, for all its shortcomings, seems to bring home more bacon for more |>eople and to spread the butter thicker on more pieces of bread. For nobody knows liow long, the phi-ase "Carrying coals to Newcastle" has been the classic description of superfluity added to abundance. Yet coals are actually being carried lo Newcastle and the rest of socialised England today. "Coal-rich England, long an exporter, has been forced to import a cargo of fue) from the United States to tide them over a period of critical emergency. The Minister of Fuel and Power, Emqnuel Stairwell, has apologized to the country for what must surely be considered a failure on the part of the- Labor government and its nationalized mining industry. 'Britain has huge coal deposits, and a force of 700,000 miners as compared > with America's 400,000. Yet American miners are expected'to dig some 900,000,000 tons of coal this year, while it appears that no amount of speedup will permit Britain to reach her minimum requirement of 200,000,000 tons Part of this difference is due to the fact that British mining is much less mechanized than ours. Part of it is probably due to the new five-day week, which Mr. .Shinwell says he thought of changing. Part of it may also be due to a continuing war-weariness. But all these apparent reasons fail to add up to a convincing explanu- ticm of the drastic drop in British coal production. British miners are getting more pay than ever before. They get extra allotments of food. Their working conditions are • improved. They are now employed by a government for which a majority of them voted, and which certainly has the workingman's interest at heart. Yet they aren't digging enough coal—and coal, if possible, is even more vital to Britain's life than it is to ours. Why? A likely explanation might be found in the method of the Labor government and their offect on Uic- miners' state of mind. First of all, the miner is still a member of a "restricted industry," which means that he can't quit his job if he doesn't like ii. No one can be ungracious enough to gloat over the United Kingdom's plight. This is particularly true when one thinks that another severe winter on top of the present coal shortage ^ might bring even greater suffering and economic paralysis than were experienced last year. But at the same time this plight raises another question as to the virtues of socialism and government control. Socialism and communism, in actual operation, seems to consist largely of present hardship and glowing promises , for the future. The British government hM£Ot.yet come to the point of making ft**7«*r plans, but its goals and pre- «Uctkm« so" far have been beyond its ; actual accomplishments. The governntlnt, to ai: appearances, has even raised the moral of its sup-, >rtevs. Although it i s made up of metnt«r» of the workingman's party, it' always M*ms to be on outa with Behind the Nurse Shortage A Bureau of Labor Standards sui" I vey reveals that the average registered nurse gels §40 for a 44 •hour week — wage on a par with what lawn mowing and other unskilled labor IK Jn-inl;- ing in many parts of the country. And we have observed that people are about as prone to complain about the high cost of musing care as they are about the high cost of getting the grasti cut. No wonder, then, that we have a shortage of nurses in this country, or that there i.s unrest among the 300,000 fili 11 practicing in spile of Hie inadequate pay. It would be a pity if the teachers' strikes of last winter were to be ,repeated in the nursing field. But unless this skilled and' indispensable profession is better compensated, Americans can scarcely be surprised if organization and concerted, militant action by nurses .should come to pass. No Long Engagements CIO President Murray wants his organization and the AFL to relegate their "minor differences" lo the background and get together on political action. AFL President Green insists that there must be an AFI.-CIO merger before anything else is done. The future of these two organizations rrut.V not be so blissful, but Mr Green is going lo insist that it be wedded. VIEWS OF OTHERS When Russian Papers Speak of '"Fascism" A Russian news agency dispatch from the United Slates which told of the passage of the Taft-Harlley labor law was published in Soviet newspai>crs—nil mouthpieces of Ihe government —under Ihc headline "Steps Toward Fascism." On Ihe same day a Moscow dispatch published in American newspapers snid a new decree had been ordered lhat boys IS lo 17 years okl and girls IS to 10 be mobilized for training in craft and railway schools. Boys and girls 1C lo 18 years old will be mobilized in faclory schools ami boys of 19, previously subject to military service, were made subject lo work underground in coal mines and in slcel welding and olhcr divisions of the metal and oil industry.

July 29. (NEA) — Republican political leaders would probably be the last to admit it. but the record of the Congressional session just ended shows the GOP has a New Deal all its own. The Democratic Nc\v Deal that was born and died with Roosevelt developed some very specific objectives. In simplest terms they wore to raise Ihe standard of living for the one-third of Ihe population supposed lo be ill-paid, ill(ed and ill-housed. .All this came to be identified os a "pro-labor" pro- its lo deductions and benefits.

He never Deemed to function as a press agent, except on studio junkets for movie premieries. That was when Johnny shined. He herded the accompanying starlets. Saw that they had their pictures laken with the dignitaries. Stuff like that. Johnny was a character witness for Flyhn at the latter's trial on charges of monkey-business with an 18-year-old girl aboard his boat. (Flynn was acquitted.) After I left Hollywood for what I thought would be more dignified job in Washington, Johnny moved over to Howard Hughes' movie company Milk cannot be kept in warm weather without placing it on ice or in a mechanical refrigei'alor. Preserve it in its original container j until you are ready lo use it. Milk • bottles should be rinsed under running water to remove surface contamination before placing them in the ice-box or refrigerator. PASTEURIZATION' AT HOME Home pasteurization units are now available and .several typos have been thoroughly tested and approved. When properly collected milk is placed in them, they heat it ito the point at whi^h disease germs are destroyed hut the taste remains. Milk can he heat-treated by putting it in the top of a double- boiler and allowing it to boil for three minutes. 'Remove from the fire and cool immediately, by placing the upper part -which contains the milk—in a large pan of cold water. Water should be changed every five minutes until the milk almost as cold rLs the water. Placing the pan in running watei shortens the process. • * • QUESTION: Is the man ever at fault when the wife cannot bear a child? ANSWER: The husband is ai, though was more than their own. thut. It 'Was a social weHarc program for all low-income groups. When the voters in 1846 kicked out the liberal majorities in Congress, the conservatives of both parlies took it as a mandate to substitute a social reform program of their own making. This program has not yet been carried out in full. /It will take another session of Congress to do lhat. But ius broad outlines emcrg- | iPassaric- of the Wolcott bill, eas- frhis same .procedure of giving'. nnvc Republican backing. uthority to the. states is proposed in the Republican aid to education program. What this trend implies is lhat the Republican Party is becoming the champion of slates' rictus. While Republican Senator Taft, In collaboration with Democratic Senators Wr.gner and Etlendcr, is sponsorin^ a long-range federal housing program, the rank-and- file of Ihe consewa'tive congressmen have shown no inclination to go a'.oir^. As matters stand now. there is ample evidence that a ma- , fault nearly as often as the wifo. I '» » simillnr capacity, according to a recent report.

It is too early yet to tell whin the effects of the conservative labor reform .program will be. Union leaders are predicting calamity, but the showdown is eight, or 10 month? away. The complete conservative tax' program has still to be written. As revealed by the voiced Kmitson tax revision bill, it would have reduced taxes more for the well-to-do than for the lower income groups, percentage-wise as well as dollar- wise. On the long range tax program. Republican sentiment now partners. In one scries of C5 cases, the wife was responsible in 21.
