A Lingering Allergy It is said llial President Truiniui saw a balcony that caught his fancy on some of Ms travels, and now would like il duplicated on Die White House. ' We fear a carrying out of this reported project might create a wrong impression and arouse opposition, even though Mr. Truman hasn't been in Rome. Benito Mussolini is still so well remembered thai a lot of people come down with the architectural willies whenever a balcony and a head of state are so much as mentioned in the same breath. will work is based on his own successful experience. He lias built and managed two factories in Germany and one in France, using the same methods he now suggests for all American industry. We should like to sec Mr. Gifford's advice followed. We also like the American Federation of Labor suggestion that EHP personnel include representatives of American unions who could advise and work with foreign labor and help counteract the Communist • influence. If this were done, under the general guidance of the State Department and with ample funds, the "intelligent investment of American money" that Mr. Hrook.s favors might have a better chance of paying off, not only in production but in peace. Til Bet My Pop Can Lick Your Pop! VIEWS OF OTHERS Protecting Our Investment The European Recovery Program presents twin problems of policy and industrial revival. Yet Senator Brooks of Illinois seems ready to ignore the first problem and divorce the Marshall Plan from Secretary Marshall. The senator says lie favors "intelligent investment of American money in western Europe to get production." But he says this must be done "under the control of men who are engaged in productive operation in America and not by hangers-on from government departments." •I'One might suspect that Mr. Brooks had paid little attention to the early history of ERP. Its planning, so far, has been done by top-level officials of all the governments concerned. The American end of the operation forms the keystone of our present foreign policy. Certainly that policy can neither be dropped nor turned over to private businessmen. Yet there will be need of Americans "engaged in productive operation" to help make Europe's recovery as swift, efficient and economical as possible. And, in that connection, we hope that those who set up ERP will give attention to the voluntary aid plan for American industry proposed by Roy Gifford, board chairman of the Borg- Warner International Corporation. Mr. Gifford feels that the need for our best industrial brains is as great now as in wartime. So he would have our industries unite in an Industrial Council for European Aid. This group would make available not only top executives, but sub-executives, engineers, production experts, technical specialists and departmental foremen. They would be loaned to European "companies—but only to those companies that asked for their help. There would be no "yoii- do-it-our-way-or-else" demands, as Ihc price of American assistance. The best long-range weapon against communism in Europe, as .Mr. Gif ford points out, is an increase in the production of goods and wealth. The logical operators of that weapon are men from American industry, undispuudly's champions in their field. Mr. Gifford says that the visiting experts should study ever phase of a company's operation in an effort to increase pel" capita output, modernize plants, and generally improve working conditions. And he would leave them - there until their program was headed toward success. His plan also proposes that these consultants continue to be paid by their companies, which would guarantee thejn no loss of standing or senoirity. The government, he thinks, might cover their expenses abroad. .= Mr. Gifford'* belief that this plan Arkansas Pay Rolls Rise Pay rolls In Arkansas continue lo grow. A tolal of 248 new Industries, and 96 expansions of exiting plants, are counted up lor Ihc stale In 1947, by the Resources and Development, commission. These enterprises cover a wide range. They Include plants lo process foods, to make clolhhiB and shots, to produce furniture and other wood producls. to turn out clay goods, and to work metals, aloiiK with numerous other kinds ot manufacturing. It all sums up a pleasant subject to think about as we close the year. And this fine development, goes on, Another Important Industry was announced Monday tor the Greater Little Rock area.

Its plant will employ at [east 100 people, and may he expanded later to provide space for turning out another machinery item, -v Our people will welcome this latest Industry. Local men who worked with its president, Bryant Esslck, speak highly of him for his ' good neighbor" relations with employes. He, himself, paid a compliment to Ihc civic leaders who aided in locating the plant here. Altogether, Arkansas has gone "a fur piece" Ihls year toward balancing its [arming, lumbering and mineral production with Industrial pay rolls. The total of these menus many more jobs than the large number they will directly provide. For the plants must have raw materials, and their workers must have a wide variety of business, professional and amusement services. Thu leans a lot more jobs in those fields.
