An Investigator says the blonde In on her way out. And that scraping noise In the men pucsu fitting up to follow her. Senator Jenner Solves Mystery of Russian Attitude lt'« all clear now. Russian policy is no longer perplexing. For Senator Jenner of Indiana has cracked the mystery and come up with the key to Soviet strategy: Premier Stalin IB opposing ERP because he wants to see it passed. That's what the senator said. He figures it this 'way. Mr. Stalin knftwi that the United States, like » stubborn child, will do just the opposite of what Russia asks it to. So, by blasting: the Marshall Finn, smart old Uncle Joe thinks he can make the most reluctant American congressman hasten to approve it. Then America will pour • billions into Europe and get everything working- nicely. Uncle Joe will then itep in and "loot" the continent. Let's gee how Mr. Jenner'g theory applies to other Soviet tactics of opposition. Th* Kremlin has its American Communists supporting Henry Wallace for Presjdent because it doesn't want Mr. Wallace to win. It wants Mr. Truman in there to see the Marshall Plan through. But suppose the Republicans nominate a candidate who really is Against ERP, except on a very small Scale. And Mr. Wallac* should cut into Mr. Truman's vote to the extent that the GOP candidate would •win. No, that doesn't seem reasonable. Russia opposes Bizonia and a slcp- ped-up Rhur production, l.ogii-an. The Soviets want a going Geniinn industry to loot- But what about Russian opposition to international control of atomic energy? What about the opposition to curbing the veto power in the UN, aiid to world press freedom «nd world civil rights and all the other things Russia is against? Does Russia really want all those things? No, we're afraid Mr. Jcnncr's illuminating theory isn't for general use, ifter all. But let', see how it rmsht work out m the specific case at hand. If all works well, America will help Europe and Europe will help itself and in three or .four yean things will ht back near normal. Then Russia will go •fter the rich prize. It'« doubtful that the'prize could be won through political infiltration. Communism thrives on discontent. And w« may assume that, if ERP succeeds th« ' P«ople of Europe will be well-fed and prosperous enough not to want to throw ov«r their governments and embrac. th« Soviet system. So Russia will have to fight for the loot. But Europe will then be xtm™ «*o«*h to resist. There ViSfb^C™* Md bombing. Factoriea will be destroy. •d.

H» »*yi h« U "unalterably opposed" to • the Marshall Plan In lt» present form. But th« Marshall Plan may pasg anyway, In gomethin^ resembling its present form' If it docs, then Russin's anti-ERP pi-opsiraiifia should cease immediately, Recording to Mr. Jcnner'g analysis. Anybody want to hct It .will? Lurking Dangers in the New Look An automobile club executive lias taken a long look at the New [,00k and, professionally speaking, has found it bad. Long skirts are a traffic hrr/.iml in and out of a car, lie .says. They interfere wilh operation i of tile car's pedals, and 'are likely to trip up * pedestrian if she has to scoot out of the path of an oncoming vehicle. It may he that the New l.ook nlao promotes pier city driving by diverting fcwnr motorists' glances from lhe street ahead. But, by and lar^e, we'd say that Hie auto clubman makes sense —at least as much souse as Inn new fashion. VIEWS OF OTHERS Reassessment in Pulaski Far niontrj Ihe Pultiskl county ai.5cs.WR office, with Hie Assistance of real estate turn and oilier private citizens, w»^ engaged In Its biennial tnstc of surveying property nssessmcnts In the urban dl.itricUi of Ihe county.

Uttic Rock schools will receive about, $130,000 more than they (lid In 1917. Noi-lh i,|ui« Rock schools can expect an Increase of about (60.000. The h»rri-|JrM*eri city government of Little Rock will receive «n estimated »100,000 In additional income, all hough most of It will be earmarked for bond reUrameiil and other special purposes. The county government cnn ccmn , on »n additional »BO,000. A large part of Ihe In assessment* represent* the value of new construction during Ihe two-year period. Bill there has also been a •ystenntic effort to oquallw «5sc,wments. increasing those-that were projwrtloiinlly low ulirt reducing thwe ih»l were regarded fcs too High. The majority o( affected. Ux-paye.», of course, will find their tola) tnx bills nicrnased, but they' at least hnve the latijlaction of knowing that tin reassessment was jennni and fair. This represents the best approach to the problem of Increasing the revenues of local governments. The mere Increase of u x n irs screes !o perpetual* and magnify Inequities and to distort the whole l*x picture. The work of the tax assessor's office Is, however, necessarily limited. Annual reassessments are impossible with (he. present staff; a survey is matte of urban property one year and iinal properly ihe next Reassessment Is « continuing task, and an im- porlant one, for It provides the necessary basu of « fair property tax. —ARKANSAS GAZaTTTE.
