Good News from the Far East The fighting in the Netherlands Indies has stopped. And 10 autonomous territories, which contain move thiiu 70 per cent of Indonesia's population, are pushing for a United States of Indonesia. Both the Dutch and the Indonesian Republic, who were fighting each other a few months ago, seem agreeable to the proposal. In a year when peaceable settlements seem a sort of Utopian fantasy, the news from the Far East gives a heartening reassurance that there remain on earth some sensible persons capable of a sensible solution of their differences. A Modest Request The most frugal congressman will find it hard to (iimrrel with one item in the President's 1949 budget That is the modest request for $24,000,000 for ship construction, and $15,300,000 for contract authorization. Those figures look even more modest beside the billions asked for other .branches of national defense. We say "other" because it is generally accepted that a shipbuilding industry and a modern, atletiuate merchant marine are important to our safety. The President said that scarcity of steel, surplus war-built tonnage, and "uncertainties regarding the future economic requirements for shiping" prompted his decision. He does not think that the Maritime Commission should start any construction now without contracts for sale to private operators. In this, Mr. Truman goes farther than the State Department in its analysis of European aid requirements. Even on the Marshall Plan's home grounds it is felt that our maritime position, especially in the passenger field, is "unimpressive," The department recommends that European shipbuilding be deferred after ships now under construction or contract are finished. The Keller Committee, Truman's advisory group, proposed a "modest start on eight U. S. passenger ships m fiscal '<I8, and a big construction program for the next three years at a cost of about $150,000,000 a year. But no start has been made on the 1'MS program, and it is too late to make one before the fiscal year ends. So Mr. Truman's recommendation in effect, puts the 1948 program into 1949. The Maritime Commission now has almost §90,000,000 for ship construction. And there are passenger lines with approved plans for new ships, and money in the bank. The operators say they could get ships built in foreign yards for half or less what they would cost here But that wouldn't help American shipbuilding, and besides they wouldn't be able to get an operational subsidy bo they want a 50 per cent construction subsidy. The commission is permitted to grant a 50 per cent subsidy if jt t . all beshown that the difference between American--and foreign construction cost*, is. really that much. They think the difference is nearer 40 per cent there the matter rests. _ AU the dire and oft-repeated predictions seem to be coining true. The last construction on the horizon for Wivat* yard, will b« finished by V August. Shipyard employment is down to 30,000 and is expected to go to 10,000. The United States stil] has only »ne first-class passenger .ship to compete with foreign luxury liners. There arc only 00 passenger vessels remaining of the 113 operating under the American flag in December, UM1. In spite of war-built .surplus, (hero i. s a • shorlage of tankers and fast cargo ships, European aid, like shipbuilding, i.s a factor in imlioiiHl .security. JJul the iwstponed fiscal '48 building program would only take an estimated 00,000 tons of steel out of a national production of about 85,000,000. There is little chance that Congress in its present mood will up the budget for ship construction. Bui perhaps it will at see fit to iron out some of the difficulties in the laws covi'rning subsidy payments. Where to Start? VIEWS OF OTHERS Feeding Violence More than 550 persons men. women, yes. anrt children—have been killed m violence, winch should not anrt probably can not be decisive ol nny basic political issue in Palestine. Meanwhile, disclosure ol illegal shipment of dynamite lor Tel Aviv from Jersey City aboard an American Export liner high lights preparations for inlcnsl- ricnllon or bloodshed by Palestine Jews and Arabs. The shipment has been intercepted. But il Is worth noting that this attempt, to feed terrorism—or counlcrterrorisin—came near to succeeding. It was foiled by an accident rather than by official vigilance aimed at preventing such shipments. The dropping of one container, which broke op^n. .showed the contents to bo TNT, not machinery as labeled. The Incident and Its background emphasize. • gain Ihe urgency for United Nations police action—as distinct from resolutions—to control the situation created by n UN decision for Palestine. The United Stales lias long been a supply base for Jewish terrorists, fust against the British and now against tlie Arabs, if shipments of arms to Palestine are to continue, they should go openly as part of an oilicial' American policy which takes responsibility lor consequences In Palestine. Otherwise, the American Government Is morally bound to take the utmost precautions to see that (lie "preparations for war" in Palestine, as some Jews frankly describe them, are not fed from American resources. To be sure, many Jews engaging hi these preparations are doing so because they believe them necessary to survival against looming Arab attacks. But this conviction and the news ol Arab infiltrations Into Palestine only sircss the confused and half-hearted manner In which the UN plan (or partition is being backed by the Great Powers chiefly responsible tor the decision. The next shipment, of arms for the Holy Land should go in the hands of a UN police detachment or an American unit sworn to uphold the United Nations policy. —CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR.
