Treaty should provide that the veto power in the Security Council would have "no relation to work of the international control agency." Jan. 4, 1947: Baruch resigns as head of American delegation, having won substantial acceptance of the American plan, and is succeeded by Warren Austin. U. S. representative on Security Council.

These alternatives are ?rim in themselves. But the Nationalists know that China needs above everything else a confidence and faith in its government. If confidence can be established their chance of eventually winning their long struggle will become brighter. A desperate attempt was made in that direction this week when new currency was established in an effort to halt the country's wild inflation. At one time last week an American penny was quoted as observations on the defense of Texas in time of war emergency. Among other questions, Jester was asked if the state had need f,:r a state controlled combat air force. He said no tut the state might need a transport element useful in time of emergency wlien the air national guard and ground forces planes are not available. Only last week, it was announced that advanced naval air train- Ing would be centered in Corpus Christ!.) ' Jester suggested that the use of C-17 and light liaison planes for rapid movement to a stricken area, transport of medical or other emergency supplies and for observation or reconnaissance of an area constitutes the chief need of the state fnr air national guard elements. "There is foreseen, however, an immediate need for air cover and protection in case of a national emergency with an air threat apparent." he said.

OTHER VIEWPOINTS Lesson for U. S. Businessmen " The Amarillo Globe: . ^ . The president of the McGraw-Hill Publishing Company jays Britain lj In "a he!! of a fix." And since a lot of government planners in this country still have their eyes on the eventual nationalization of business, maybe we'd better gee why Britia^n's industry is in such a fix. James H. McGraw. Jr., writing In Business Week, says he talked recently with many government and business leaders in Fngland about the slate of British industry. He does not blame socialism for all the ills he found, but he doe. insist t h a t what is happening in England should he taken to hart by American businessmen. What England needs most is an accelerated pace of recovery, f( she is to pay her own way by 1952 when the European Recovery Plan comes to an end. Everybody agrees on that, but Mr. McGraw found no agreement on how this sepped-up pace is lo be acheived. There Is. says Mr. McGraw, a desperate lack of leadership. Among other things he found wrong is a lag In industrial technology. This Is brought about In part by out-of-date industrial equipment, a condition encouraged by Inadequate depreciation allowances granted for new factory Installations under British laws. Bill that's not all. Mr. McGraw writes: "Business must accept i share ot the blame for Britain's technological lag durine thr l»=l M years. "Here ts a gruesome lesson for American businessmen. Free enterprise means enterprise u muek w irwdom. Without conttnuouj enterprise and competition, slothfulness sets in, industry falls to keep abreist of public demand and the rent thing you have Is socialism. "Britain still needs the spark of real business leadership lo bring Us Industrial machine to life. New altitudes toward production are needed, not only in government, but also among the top men In industry and Ihe labor movement. "By draining exorbitant profits, British businessmen have lived well bul have kept their own industries from deriving full benefit of modern technical advances. British capitalism also committed the f a t a l error of building cartel walls around itself, which meant easy profits, but also atrophy. With competition gone, large segments of free enterprise got laiy. forgot to medernize, cut coupons, and went to sleep." The lesson here, as we see It. Is lhat constant vigilance is the price of free enterprise as well as of freedom, itself. When we begin to fake freedom--and profits--for granted, we are in danger of losing both. Watch out for cutting remarks when the man next door gels out with the lawnmower on » sizzling day. A pastor says it takes I woman to make home. Anr a couple of them lo break one. If you doubt it's Ihe same old U. S. with tbs world'i lagest tupply ol raw materials, drop In en torn* d th* turlnqui ihowi. bombers and troop carriers, would he imperative but it Is considered that these should be federal troops." HOME FORCE? What number of troops would the slale wish to retain as home defense force? "A sufficiently large number to afford all possible protection lo shipping, induslria!. manufacturing and transportation centers In case either a national emergency with only air threat apparent or with air and airborne threat." Eaid Jester. "It is believed if either threat Is apparent both would actually exist, bill it Is believed that this force should he a. federal force and iU size should be that directed by the Army's G-2 estimate." Governor Jester gave as his Ide» of local defense missions of a state force the protection ol utilities, railroads and government installations from sabotage, protection of air fields, oil supply cor.ccntra- lions and other such Installations, protection of strategic lines of con- r.ection and munitions and military supply factories instruction of and (raining of civilians in the use of air raid precautions. The Governor said Texas should have a larger defense force than other states because of her great distances. He thinks there should be considerable surveying done by G-2 lo determine Ihe sle of such a force. Jesler gave as his opinion Ihe need for "better realization" of all employers, large ar.d small, of the "vital Jmportance nf an adequately trained armed force." Generally, however, he said all industry showed its interest and cooperation in Ihe national guard, organized reserve and other civilian component units of national defense in pcacelimc. 12 DISTRICTS He pave his plan fnr organizing the Texas State Guard Reserve Corps. It includes a state headquarters and 12 districts with from two to four Infantry battalions and i medical unit In each district. There would be no required Irain- ing and no equipment issued. Ratings would be done to Grade III enlisted men and there wouW be ample room for expansion. Jester expressed gratification at the passage of a state law creating such a state guard reserve corps. If the merger of the national guard and organized reserves under the Federal military lysfem ever passes Congress, then Texas would be wholly dependent for militia service on this state guard. Before this move -ever gains much headway, however, there will be plenty of opposition registered. Rep. Olin league, Bryan, for many years a reserve officer, has some interesting conclusions to offer on the subject. It was his survey of reserve unit residents throughout the nation that formed the basis of Ihe Gray board's report. However, Teague said he recommended that somelhing be done lo change the present reserves by the regular army. He does not agree with the Gray board's recommendation of a merger under federal jurisdiction. Teague said Ihe Gray board report, If adopted, would hinder the reserves and benefit the regular service. "This plan would be much more cosily lhan we need," he says. "We could have legislation setting up a changed system that would cost much less and still obtain the desired result." Pressed for steps in this reason- Ing. Teague said: "According to this plan, if they get 22,000 graduates annually from Reserve Officers Training Corps schools, then Jt will cost them $71,000,000 annually." He makes some severe charges against military higher-ups ind regular army men lor their "attitude" toward the reserves. Teague has been a reserve officer since 1932. He is familiar with the program and also with the hopes ar.d ilms of the temporary officers and men who came out of World War If. If some plan had been evolved ar.d put Into successful operation immediately following the close of the last war, whereby the reserves might have kept up their training and received inleresled consideration, "then we would have organized the potential manpower of thii nation and today we would have all the reserve strength we need," he said. "We wouldn't even need the draft." He also Is t great believer In universal military training which would maintain that reserve, he feels. · "WRONG ATTITUDE" "The whole attitude of the. regular army toward the reserves has got to change," Teague said. Then he cited instances where he believes the military top echelons have squelched hie reserve -"gram. He charged that some years ago, a large sum, approximately J50,OCO,000 was shifted from the funds allocated to the reserves and put elsewhere in the Army budget. Since lhat time, appropriations for the reserves have been cut by Congress to fit that pattern -and thus the reserve program has been hindered. Teague also charged that recently at Texa sA. *: M. College, in his district and also his alma mater, an incident arose which is puz- iling. Some 200 men wanted to Iraln as reserve officers bul the War Department which today says It needs and wants officer material *nd must now have the draft would not accept this large number of applicants. Teague said he is still conduct- Ing his sludy of lust what the Gray board report means. He is also keeping perhaps the most watchful snd experienced eye In Congress on the top brass. Summertime It fall time; It Is In 19*8 and It was 25 years ago. The Abilene Reporter In 1923 had this slory about Abilene golfers: "Owen Green, Abilene golfer, has ·gain joined the "hole In one" club, "Tuesday afternoon, shooting number three hole, Green put the little round pellet in the cup with his tee stroke. "Five other golfers were playing with him. He was playing against the best ball of the other five. When number three was reached, Green- remarked that he wouldn't shoot If they'd give him a number two on the hole. "Nothing doing,' somebody replied. ".'All tight, then: I'll Just make It In one,' was Green's response. "And he did it. "It vf»i the second fime Green had made the hole In one. He pulled the same itunt about one year ago on the same hole, which is par three. "Incidentally, Green is one of the best golfers at Ihe. Abilene Golf Club links--or In West Texas, for that matter."

Also in 1922 Lucy Catpn won the Junior spelling division, and Ida Hoghland won the slate girls tennis . title. The footba'll team was state runner-up in 1922, the Reporter said.

PE. Abilene. Texas, Sunday Morning, August 22,1948 By ROWLAND EVANS, JR. AP Newsfeitures Writer WASHINGTON --Have you got a plan to bring dtrtvo the cost of your living? President Truman has. So have members of the Republican Congribs. They point to food, 1'ir instance, which Is costing you 120 percent .:ic*re than in June, 1939, and 47 pannl more-than la Jjne, 1946. They agree that, something should be done. But they don't agree on how it should bs done. Hire's, the background oo the inf'stion thinking li each: The President IninXs price con- Irols cculd go a long way to so'.'e the' problem. His. ni«rfige to Con- urcss 01: Aug 4 said tnis: "Selective price control is as Important 65 aiij- other measure thai anyont has proposed to combat this inflation." With price control Mr. Truman also recommends allocation of short-supply items like steel. His message said that allocation "ranks high on the list nt effective measures" which can control inflation Senator Taft (R-Ohio) disagrees. He says that fixing wages and prices and rationing commodities would be like "tying down the safety valve while you go on stok- injj "the furnace. It would only bring n explosion in the end." And Rep. Wolcott (R-Mlch.), chairman of the House Banking and Currency Committee, agrees. "We do not need price control to handle Inflation," he «itd In an interview. "We can never have full production wltn price control." But the administration doesn't want blanket price control, only "selective" control where most needed. Sen. Taft doesn't like that lde« either. "You cannol fix the price of wheat and corn and other grains," he said, "without fixing the price of chickens and eggs and dairy products." What measures do Republican congressional leaders Ihink will solve the Inflation riddle? "The administration and Ihe Federal Reserve System," says Wclcott. "have Ihe authority to stabilize our economy. If this aulh- oril/. over our money and credit policies is used discreetly, and if a similar authority over our exports is used wisely, the inflation danger would be solved." Whal Wolcoll means is lhat the administration can force money out of circulation, The more money oul of circulation, the less money fo exert pressure on prices and force them up: He says the Federal Reserve System can do this by raising Ihe reserve requirements which banks must have behind the loans they make. He gave this as an example: If reserve requirements were raised and the "re-discount rate" were Increased (this Is. in effect, the rale of interest which Federal Reserve banks charge olher banks for borrowing money) other banks would have to charge more interest on their loans to business and industry. They would also look for their operating cip- ilal, Wolcott thinks. They would look to long-term depositors. This 'would mean getting depositors to put money in hanks. That in turn means offering greater inducements in Ihe form of higher interest rates In savings deposits^ ·Today, says Wolcotl, (here is n8 incentive at al! to put money in a savings bank at one percent interest. If the interest went to two percent of higher he thinks a lot of money would find Its way inlo savings funds. Congress has authorized the federal Reserve to raise reserve requirements by four percent on demand deposits and one and one half per cent on time deposits, and H'olcott (hinks some money may get oul of circulaliqQ as a result. The President, too, thinks that control of bank credil would be helpful in stopping inflation, but only as a part of a program. His Aug. 4 message said such controls "would not reach into the crucial problem of the price-wage spiral "unless they were applied so extremely as to endanger nation-wide levels of business activity." In other words, he's afraid money would become too light. f , On the export side, Wolcotl points out that Marshall Plan exports cover "only one segment of the world to which we" export," and lhat somewhere there is a "golcien mean" of how much we should export. The more we export short-supply goods the higher their price will go, he says. He says Ihe administration s h o u l d "balance foreign.demand against domestic stability." Son. Taft agrees. S » He says inflation can be check'£ by "limiting exports from the U. S., the excess (of exports over imports! this year amounting to SS.- 000.000,000, only part lo Europe." The President's message didn't hit this question squarely, but it did slate that even if the foreign aid and preparedness programs were "complicaating the Inflation problem far more than they are, .·' we would have to carry these pro- ! grams forward nonetheless." In , other words, we shouldn't IpuC I our exporl policies but should find j were "complicating Ihe inflation By "olhcr means" he probably | meant "selective price control", | which is where we came in. So j take your pick or mayhe you like your own plan better. Anyn-ay, ths i President will have to forget about price cor.trol and allocation for now. Congress isn't expected back till January.
