Pleasant Experience Driving on some ol' Ulylht-villi'V, narrow streets whore two-wuy IrujTic is permitted and parkinjj' allowed is sometimes a chore which would tax the patience of Jobe if lie wore living todny and operating an automobile. Occasionally one encounters a pleasant experience along these narrow streets when courtesy is extended by drivers who meet head-on and siiuee/i; through without adding a dent lo tin- fenders. Such an experience was related the other day for the driver who waited at the end of a block-long line of parked cars was rewarded with a "thank you" from the trapped driver when she reached the end of the line. Parking only on one side of such streets, and one-way traffic seem to be the only answer to this abominable situation until such time as the city sees fit to spend the. funds necessary to widen these streets. nationalistic Miperiorily. They strike mercilessly, and at random, throughout Hie world. Thus I'm- they have concealed the secrets of their c-misu and cure. If cancnr is to succumb to human conquest, its conquerors must also realise that this is one world. The united scientific forces of all nations in (he world must join in the lask, pooling their knowledge and freely exchanging the results of their efforts. Since! true .science knows no milion- Mlisin, racism or bigotry (wo arc not speaking of Iho pseudo-scientists of Na/.i Germany) such a united attack may lie possible. Tlio dissenting member of Iho Atomic Energy Commission is reported to have feared that Russian scientists, as wiling or reluctant prisoners of Soviet policy, might use the isotopes I'm- deeds as atrocious as Hitler's "scientists" committed. This seems unlikely, since Russia's ruling clique has plenty of old-fashioned methods of atrocity at its disposal if it wants to use them. Hut, it the rhaucn (o conquer diseases lilu? cancer exists, it, would seem that it must be taken. In the happy eveiH of success, it would then be up to win-Id's .statesmen to decide' whether human lives. naveit from painful death by a byproduct, of the atomic bomb, an; worth saving from the bomb itself. The New Atomic War The American decision, announced by President lYuman, to 7iiake radio isotopes available to qualified scientists of all nations was not a unanimous action. One member of the U. S. Atomic Energy Commission voted against it. Some complaints arc reported from congressmen, and Bernard Baruch, chief author of the American plan for atomic energy control, is said to disapprove. Yet the expert consensus seems to be that "the-risks were minimal and the advantages very large." So those of us 'Americans whose knowledge of nuclear physic's ' is a little rusty will probably have to trust the explanation that radio isotopes cannot be used for military purposes or for the wholesale destruction of human life. Radio isotopes have been called the most important medical research tool since the miscroscope. So it would seem that, while we are not giving away any atomic secrets, we may be presenting the world's scientists with the key to the deadly atomic .secrets which cause such killing illnesses as cancer. There i B hope that other maladies may be conquered by the isotope's detective and curative roperties. But cancer is the principal target. The announcement of the isotope's availability was followed immediately by the announcement of plans for an international association to fight the disease. Before the war, radio isotopes were produced in cyclotrons. The process \vas slow and fantastically expensive. Now, thanks to the uranium chain reaction pile which produced the atomic bomb, they can be had in quantity and a t a moderate price. Thus, science can now wage atomic war against a disease whose continuous toll of lives makes the atomic bomb seem like a popgun by comparison. There is no present guarantee that this atomic war will be successful. But even its declaration. comes as good news to a world torn by clistrucl, . ideological conflicts and economic crises. To diseases, such as cancer, this is truly one world. They recognize no *- toufadmrie* or politics or pretenBions of VIEWS OF OTHERS Washington Dropped the Lamp There's an old utory that's :\ purabln of Waslimiiton'.s mismanagement of prices. The stcry is [ibcnl u nol-tco-briglH mnkl who win; ulUnij her mistress of u calamity .sh<- hiul prevented while the mistress was tione. U was in tlie days of coal oil lamrjs. "1 dropped the lamp." the maid said "ami it set ftrp to the (hiiperics. K I hadn't been there lo put the lire out. the whole place would pave burned." Washington dropped the lamp in this price business right, after the wtir. High administration officials advised labor to demand big wage increases; snid they could be paid with little or no hoisting of prices. And the Republicans led the movement to kill off OPA price control too soon. They told us we'd have plenty at I'verythiny at reasonable cost 'in a little while. N r ow llu 1 fire of intlation is burning high. And both parties lo it, the administration and U'.e Hepublican.s. are Irylny, like the maul in trie ::lory. to be the hero of the evil condition they did so much lo crealtv President Truman started, months ago. to urge price cuts—though sayiiif little about the vital need of holding wages steady and boosting production. Prices continued to «u up. Now Attorney General Clark and the Federal Trade Commission are out afler industrial itiul monopolies, as causes of tlie y.oom of living COMS. And congress, before it went home, .set np a committee to investigate prices. A dreary old truth is repealing. When government manages our affairs, it will, consciously, or unconsciously .shade it-s efforts toward the grcupr, with the most, voles and inllucnce. It will play politics. And monopoly, or capital and labor, greed nnel self-seeking, will taKe advantage cf that situation. Good government tun be had only by keeping it simple; by the people lakinf; a lively interest in it. and holding officials strictly ac- ccmnablc for their acts; and by asking nothing of government that the people ran do lor themselves. We have departed far from tins basic principle of democracy. We are paying the price —and will continue to pay it until we weed the-socialism out of our government, and again live up lo our individual responsibilities. —ARKANSAS DEMOCRAT.
