In times of economic crisis, however, it becomes a real problem that needs rather drastic means to correct it. It cancels out the effort toward voluntary controls. And, by complicating the more tangible problems, it paves the way for regulations which nobody wants, and which probably could bo avoided if each individual practiced the virtues of honesty, charity and unselfishness. VIEWS OF OTHERS Letter or Substance? Action Precipitated The Salt Lake City Chamber of Commerce is threatening to sue the Reno Chamber of Commerce for allegedly using dry ice to milk clouds which, if left alone, would precipitate over the Utah metropolis. Whatever the outcome, this is one action in which it is certain that both the plaintiff's and the defendant's suits will hold water. The Little Problem The causes and cures of inflation, and the pros and cons of European aid, are big subjects. They are usually discussed in big terms. We read overall figures on national income and production and savings and spending. We get percentage on the cost-of-living rise. Marshall Plan appropriations are discussed in terms of billions. But the big problems are aggravated by a lot of little annoyances. They might be lumped together under the heading of selfishness—or just plain human cussedness. When we read about some of them, they may not seem too important, and yet they add up. For instance, there was the news that hotel and restaurant associations would release their members from the pledge to observe meatless days. This came as no surprise. It was evident from the start of the meatless and eggless programs that observance was pretty much of a joke. Some restaurants refused to co-operate from the beginning. Others kept meat and.eggs off the menus on the designated days, but served them if the customers insisted. It is easy to blame the restaurants, but what about the customers? A meat- .less day meant that they had lo get along on such things as lurkey, chicken, fish and sea food, liver, kidneys and other dishes which, when well prepared, are as fit for a king as a cut of red meat. Eggless days meant the tremendous sacrifice of bacon without eggs once a week. Yet it seems there were millions of Americans who, for one reason or another, refused to make this tiny gesture of self-denial. The failure of the meatless-and- eggless program was largely a matter of customer selfishness. Some may say that the program was ineffectual to begin with, but the charge of selfishness still stands. And how about the retailer? Well, here are two news itums from New York City's big snow storm which illustrate an attitude that is neither isolated nor unusual. With thousands of cars marooned in drifts, the price of tire chains went up from around $S to §30 a pair. And with many streets 1 closed to oil delivery trucks, some householders were being charged 25 cents a gallon, or about double the normal price, for fuel oil. A couple of little price gouges may not seem worth getting excited about; a million little gouges are a real factor in pushing prices up, and dollar values down. One isolated failure to save food is not important in itself; a million failures keep food away from really hungry people. Americans are not the only offenders. Greed, in the form of black markets, worsens the plight of Europeans and increases the problem of helping them. Both here and abroad, the selfish «nd thoughtless are in the minority, but they can cause a vast amount of needless trouble. In good times, selfishness usually result* in nothing more serious than The first eof doubtless many sequels to the monumental report of the President's Commission on Higher Education Is a minority dissent on segregation. H is EiKned by four distinguished members—two college presidents and an editor from the south and one college head from i border city. for a newspaper which earnestly endeavors to stand lor Christian idealism and all Its Implications to the dignity of mini, not lo Indorse unreservedly the Commission's call lor an end to educational segregation in the South invites the risk ol being misunderstood. Yet we should be less thnn honest were we not to say thai, in our view, the lour dissenters come nearer to tiie realities of the problem and to its practical solution than does the Commission's majority report. There is no disagreement on objectives. The minority also want conditions Improved, "Inequalities removed, and greater opportunity provided for all our people"—Negro as well as white. But they hold that "efforts toward these ends must, in -the South, be made within the, established pattern of social relationships." That "pattern of social relationships" is the key. Such elemental rights for the Negro us protection against violence, assurance ot a fair trial, and the privilege of free exercise of the ballot seem attainable through law and ils evenhanded enforcement. But when one enters the domain of social relationships between the races, H is to discover that which has as little to do with the rational as do the customs which define the edible and inedible In food, and which embodies as deep-scaled values ol right and wrong as does the code of ethics which attaches to the family. Such patterns arc not changed by compulsion from without. Changes must grow from within. Precipitate pressures could crystalline now-yielding antipathies Into granite and generate emotional heat the violence of which could undo the work of years. One needs to stop and ask: Just what Is wanted here? Is it the letter of humanity and Justice to be written down in the books ol law? Or is it the substance to be engraved upon the "tablets of Ihe heart"? —CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR.

Thc same point for thc benefit of anybody who still takes him seriously, a few of Henry's precepts need to be nailed to thc door and shot full of holes.

Along with its letter to the friends of the friendless, {he bureau sends a chart on how to measure a foot for shoes, with inches on one side and centimeters on the other. Sizes are in the middle. The idea is to send the chart to the European and let him measure his own I foot, so there'll be no mistake. I First, to measure a foot, you ! lake Ihe chart and put it on the floor and then stand on it. Take a table knife or a butcher knife and hold it straight up and down against the longest toe—making; sure you don't slice off half an inch or so of tootsje. Make a pencil mark on the chart. For width, do it about the same. It is important, the bureau warns, lo measure BOTH feet. One may be bigger than, the other. In any case, when ordering shoes, you Europeans, be sure to order the size for the biggest foot The other one will take care ol itself. Hobbs and the bureau also advised that if your friend is already barefoot and can't wait for the chart you'd better cable him.
