Since the British want the terms of their loan liberalized, it seems only fair and right that, in return, the United States should ask that its dollars b« used as effectively as possible. Finding a satisfactory middle course between these two problems looks like an unenviable exercise in diplomacy. It's About Time Somebody Showed Some Action Competition Desirable In the not-too distant past, Americans considered competition ..the spice of life. The nation's greatness was built around .this theqry and .its future prosperity will hinge on the manner in which this theory • is used in the ; immediate future. Competition is possible!.in: bringing natural gas to Eastern Arkansas, and without natural ga£ Eastern 'Arkansas will not he in a position ,to compete with other areas -for the .industrial development it must have ifjt is to have ' a balanced economy. At least three, and perhaps more,' public utilities distributing • natural " gas should be interested in .serving the 22 East Arkansas cities and towns which will be served if plans of the East Arkansas Natural Gas Consumers Association materialize. These competing utilities would be fighting hammer and tong for the business of serving a city like • Little Itofck which has upward of 25,000 consumers of natural gas. The 22 East Arkansas cities and towns offer some utility, a potential of 30,000 or more customers and even though the municipalities are located in 13 counties they offer a real business plum .for the utility which can serve all of them. If the powerful East Arkansas Natural Gas Consumers Association fails to find competition among the utilities for this bloc of franchises as keen as one might normally expect, the association will do well to give thorough consideration to a suggestion which was presented to the organization, but given only scant attention in Forrest City last week. ' -While the matter of co-operative distribution of natural gas presents some hurdles which do not attach to the distribution of electricity, it still offers possibilities which might be used to advantage in Eastern Arkansas. A group of 30,000 consumers of natural gas in an agricultural area as rich as the East Arkansas area offers an annual gas consumption sufficiently large to be operated economically as a co-operative enterprise, and suffi- cently large to be able to obtain a dependable supply. Distributed co-operatively it should be possible to get the gas into the homes at a cost considerably lower than any private utility can furnish it knowing that a profit must be made for the stockholders. The idea is worth developing by those who have the opportunity to do something constructive for Eastern Arkansas. We believe that they will not overlook this possibility, and even though they do no more than develop . the idea, it can go a long way to bring real competition into the negotiations with other interests in a position to serve the area. VIEWS OF OTHERS What Has Happened to The Four Freedoms"? In n dark hour of the recent World War, trie world was thrilled as the result ot a conference between Churchill and the lat« President Roosevelt In which were proclaimed, as the objectives of the war, "The Four Freedoms:' 1 "Freedom from Want;" "Freedom of Speech; 11 "Freedom from Fear" ami "Freedom of Religion." A war-weary people felt that sucrt objectives were worth any sacrifice or price necessary to obtain them. "The Four Freedoms" were proclaimed for all men everywhere. Their benefits were not to be limited to the supporters of the allied cause, what has happened to ^the new hopes born when the ideal pictured in "The Four Freedoms" was given to the world? Most of us have heard tlie story of the attempt of Moses to console Woodrow Wilson over Hie failure ot his "Fourteen Points," whlcli ployed such a prominent part- in th* close of the First World War. The story has Wilson re- . plying to Moses by saying. "If you only knew what folks have done to your Ten • commandments you would not be wasting your sympathy on me." If, since Roosevelt has Joined the immortals, he were to offer condolence to either Wilson or Moses about their failures, they could very appropriately remind him of what the world has done to his "Four Freedoms." To talk to millions of people today about "Freedom from Want" would be mockery. There are millions of people in "civilized" Europe who lack the bare necessities of life. There, and elsewhere, masses of people have died of malnutrition since the close of the war. "Want" is rampant across the nations of Europe and Asia. Who would think today of "Freedom of Speech" in Russia and her satellite nations'; Not only are the individuals in nations within the Russian orbit denied freedom of speech but the nations arc denied freedom of action.. For Germany, Italy and Japan there is certainly no "Freedom of Speech" two years alter the order to "cease firing." It would be ironical to talk "Freedom from Fear" today. There are more people afraid today than at any time in the hosiery of the world. Tlie atomic bomb has made the peoples of earth a. Brotherhood of the Fearful. There arc possibly fewer doors closed to religion now than formerly but there are hindrances to religion on every side. "The Four Freedoms," like most war-born slogans, has had difficulties surviving the end of the war. -ARKANSAS METHODIST. A Delicate Problem U.S. Will Keep In Close Touch With Paris Economic Parley Bureaucracy Quickly Gets 'Em in Washington But Boys on the Job Often Hate to Admit It BY DOUGLAS LARSEN NEA Staff Correspondent "WASHINGTON. Aug. 29. (NBA) — It's frequently the contention or federal employes that they arc just normal folk who think and enjoy the normal pleasures of life like everybody else. That is a debatable point. The person whose daily life is a menu ol high- and low-level decisions, top policy, channeling, budgetary procedure, 17 carbon copies, programming and organizational charts, and !who can still maintain complete normalcy, hasn't been born yet. In one way or another, bureaucracy gets you. "Maybe when the FBI finally gets through investigating every one of us. and a few get fired, the people and Congress will be convinced that there is no more communism in the government and get off our buck."

Aug. 29, (UP) — The United States is preparing to take a direct hand in the final stages of the Id-nation Paris conference on the Marshall plan, it was earned today. The aim is lo see that the 1« Western European nations don't come up with a proposition that will cost a lot more than , Congress is likely.-to approve. The Marshall plan is a U. S. proposal that European nations get together and figure out a joint scheme for putting themselves back on their economic feet. When a workable plan is developed the U. S. has offered to step in and back it with aid in the form of money ind 'equipment. Dp to now Hie United States has been following the policy that tfctf European recovery plan should be entirely drawn up by the participating nations. Then tins country would step in and say how much it could do to help. •But government sources said today the point has been reached where an adequate link must be established between Washington and Paris if the Marshall plan is to succeed. Paris dispatches have reported that the conference badly needs to know how far it can go with reasonable assurance of U. S. backing. Official circles here feel it might be disastrous for the conference to reach an estimate that had no chance of winning congressional approval. -In this connection concern is felt over unofficial estimates from Paris that the 16 nations might ask the United States for up to $30,000,000,000 livin" and safetv imiwrilino- the liu &id over a four-year period.

Three State Department experts Sunday School Lesson Scripture: Proverbs S:C-11; 18:9; 24:30-32; Ecclesiastts 5:12 BY W1LLIA ME. UILKOY, I>. U. If the world ever needed a lesson concerning the basis and necessity of work, it is getting it today. We i have a forceful demonstration of what happens when men turn from producing the things that satisfy human need to producing ways of destruction. Tlie vigorous words, written many hundreds of years ago to describe what happens when men stop working and become sluggards, describe exactly what 1ms happened in the many countries where the masses turned from honest toil, not in this instance to sleep like the sluggard, but to engage in the equally unproductive business of war. To the non- worker, the wise man of Proverbs predicted that "want as an armed man" would come, and that is precisely the situation in the lands stricken by war. Even in countries like ours, not so seriously stricken by war, we have had ample demonstration of what happens when men stop working. Without attempting to assess the mutter of rights and causes, one can point to what happens when trains stop running, when fishermen stop fishing, when steel mills stop producing, when coal miners slot) digging, and when building is tied up with strikes and jurisdictional conflicts. Such strikes and lockouts no longer affect only the things that people car. do without, but they invade the very basis of •Avcn the automobile that was once a luxury is now, for masses of people, essential in the business of life and earning a living. Regardless of at least in Agriculture, but any we do ta'i rid of will be worth the effoit chance of having intimate details of our pasts opened up ant! probed, j QUESTION" OF But a consensus among the rank- KlXGER-rKlXTING and-lile federal employes in Washington is one of relief over tile whole thing. There was considerable disagreement between the various agencies ar.d ihe FBI over the question of TEST WILL CLEAIC THE AIR j finger-printing every federal em- A clerk in the Department of La- i plove iijain. Supposedly, every lede- bor expresses, a pretty typical re- | i-ral worker has already been finaction: ! gcr-printed once, and some four or live times, if they've changed departments. But the ITBI contended that it would be easier reprinting everybody thnn checking to see if the old prints were complete. lAml they pointed out that any person who really wanted to alter his prints might have had access to them, the way some of the agency files were kept. It is just these few persons whom the whole investigation is designed to trap .they say. Unless there are positive print identifications the wholfi program will be useless, is the FBI's claim. The job of investigating is easiest among the federal eir.plWes in Washington. Being concentrated in one place, and having the files accessible to the FBI, makes it relatively simple. There are 204.899 federal employes in Washington and 1,840.800 scattered all over the U. S.. including Forest Service and Border Patrol employes who are stationed in pretty remote spots. Getting these field hands fingerprinted again is a rather expensive job. But it- probably won't be as costly as finger-printing the 281.CCO government employes who are stationed all over the globe in various embassies, doing occupation work, something else which keeps them abroad. It is estimated that the fingerprinting job alone will take about, six months. And it is expected that the whole job won't be completed for at least two years. who is to blame, it ought to be evident that when men in any basic industry stop work on a large scale the very fabric of society is endangered. For one, I am unwilling to follow the simple and easy way of putting all the blame on "labor". Nevertheless, the problems associated with the right not to work have become more emphasized than those which for long have been very properly dominant concerning unemploy- 1 mcnt and the right to work. The productive powers of man are so great that if all who are able to work were doing their fair share, and were doing it faithfully and regularly, the resulting resources for he satisfaction of human needs md for the aggrandizement of ife would be so great that short lours of labor, with much time for eisure, pleasure, and home-build- ng. would be available for all. But .he greatness of this productive power leads men to forget the tra- jedy that befalls, and how quickly t befalls, when men cease producing at all, or when great numbers of them do. So. the wise words concerning work are still words of wisdom. And the words of Jesus, above all, are to be remembered, "My Father work- c-th hitherto; and I work, 1 ' on economics and foreign policy are now en route to Paris to outline the part this government is likely to play iii the overall program. They are expected to go over the plan •with the Paris conferees 'with a view to trimming it to congressional es'timHtes. .. \15 Years Ago In Blytheville— IN HOLLYWOOD arid can One rule of success is "keep at it" be wisely applied to the pBreha«e of [ bonds.

(UP) — A new. chemical .process which makes cotton fabrics as wrinkle-proof as woolens, WPS announced today by Dan River Mills, Inc., the company which holds exclusive rights to the treatment. George S. Harris, president of the mills, said tin; process had been developed through lour years of research at the company's Danville, Va., laboratories. Basic substance in the treatment was the Monsanto Chemical company's syn-' thetic resin "Resloom C." The first finished garments made of the newly treated fabrics will be in women's wear and men's iport shirts,. Harris said. Tficse should begin to go on sale in retail outlets about November or December. 'Basil Browdcr, vice president of the mills, said thai, although the process was not patented, his firm was the only company with sufficient- "know how" to utilize it effectively. The fabrics that have been treated and tested so far include corded cliambray. gingham and plaid sport shirting. Browder said the process was permanent and gave the fabrics wrinkle-resistance superior to rayon and equal to woolens and worsteds. The company announcement said that the treatment would cause "moderate" price increases in tlie fabrics, but that wholesale prices will range from 45 to 60 cents a yard. WARNING ORDER Cora L.
