Why Is II people always speak ol » bad Have you ever heard of » good one? i-olil? At least we can be thankful that Congress doesn't argue over bills as long " some husbands. Sen. Elmer Thomas will tolerate no more iiujuirics into his "|>riv;ite activities," he has told a committee of col- IMKUC.S investigating his commodity speculations. What's more, he will consider any more of the same "an insult to the sovereign stale of Oklahoma." Now, let's see. The senator takes refuge in the privacy of his private affairs. Then he strikes a pompous pose and announces that any qucHtioning of those purely private affairs is an insult to his state. This double immunity of privaie citizen and public official presents sonic interesting possibilities. But it might put a little strain on the preservation of order and honest under law if it were generally adopted. United Policy Dewey, Toft, Stassen, Expound on Current Issues Lincoln, Jackson and Jefferson Day dinners are seldom of much public significance. On these occasions., politicians, already convinced of their party's Tightness and- virtue, meet to hear speakers convince them all over again. This year's Lincoln Day dinners, however, found four entries Tor the their views on current issues before as many audiences. Since these views might be presidential policy if one of the four should wind up in Hie White House next year, a brief digest might be of more general interest than visual. Thomas E. Dewey favors a united Western Europe, and would make this a condition of American aid. He feels that the combined industrial potential of the ERP countries could be a major help to recovery it those countries' resources were interchanged freely and used effectively. He would also internationalize the Ruhr and make full use of its productivity. s Aml he favors voting the full ?6,800,000,000 thai the administration asks to put the Marshall Flan in operation. Robert A. Taft is "very strongly in favor of extending aid to the countries ot western Europe." But he does not favor "giving away" American taxpayers' money except "for those specific projects of which we can see the real value." He docs not specify the projects. Jlr. Tai'L would rewrite the UN Charter to draft a law governing the relations between the member UN governments, with a court to determine the law. Harold Stasscn, dealing with domestic matters, wants food prices stabilized at 15 per cent below the high marks of a month ago, with moderate government buying lo steady the market until it finds its "true level." Kx- lended rent control and lower taxes to give small and new business a better chance are on the Stassen program. Though he does not think war inevitable, Mr. Stasscn wants the armed forces to have their essential manpower. Earl Warren's Lincoln Day speech dealt with what lie thought Lincoln would wish has party to stand for if he were alive today. These are highlights of the Lincoln- Warren counsels: A party that reflects the "needs and views of everyone, rich and poor alike," but which dues not prevent a man's aciiuiring wealth by honest effort, provided the rules are fair; a party that reflects an interest in all the racial ancestries that make up America, and that does not limit membership by any boundaries of sectional or economic interests. The above excerpts are sketchy, but they do indicate trends of thinking. They are not the first or last statements on these subjects by the four candidates. But they give a par- There is welcome news in the report that the AFL and CIO will unite to help set up a new world federation of trade unions. It is generally agreed that the present \VFTU, to which the CIO belongs, is Communist-controlled. Certainly it would add strength to free unionism everywhere if the two great labor organizations could join forces in what might be called a "bi- union foreign policy." Whatever their domestic differences, it is clear now that their leaders, and most, of their members, agree that communism is no friend of labor. Joint AFL-CIO support of a new international group should help break the Communist hold in other countries and thus give moral and practical aid to European recovery.

By Peter Etlson NEA Washington C'nrrrMioinlent f'l'hi.s i.s (,he first of a series of dispatches on the first six months .of the Taft-Hartley Law.) WASHINGTON I UP'—The Taft- Hartley Laljor-Mannsemcilt Kcln- 110115 Act of 1941 Is SIR months old. 13nt it's still too early to tell whether it's a. good law or n badriie. U must come to grips with a "national emergency" strike or 1 lockout that "imperials the im- ; tional health or safety" to test how well Cyprus Chlng's Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service will . work. : It will also have to experience a depression in which there Is a freer labor market, to determine whether , it is a "slave labor" law that can be used 10 coerce employes and break unions. More specifically, the law must meet a number of Supreme Court decisions to dflermiue constitutionality of np\v .sprtinns. So far only one such case has been ciocided by the Supreme Court- It was a denial of petition filed by Foremen's Association of America in the Young Sprhii: and Wire Co. c^c in Los Anpelrs. The offeci is to uphold a previous decision by Court, o! tvancnis, finding that om- plnyers do not have to bavsain \vilh unions of supervisory employes. This Ls the first big victory for the law which prouded that foremen do not have to be considered as employes. This upsets a previous decision in the Packard Motors case, and virtually s?als the i^;Uh warrant for all foremen's unions. Naiional Labor Relations Bo;ird has been enlarged from three to five members under chairman Paul M. Helios. It has been given only the judicial end of the old Wagner Act's NLRB job. H has handed riown only one basic decision under the new ac-i: Classifying inspectors as employes not supervisors—and therefor? entitled to collective bargaining rights. Sl\ Months of .outine In spite of all uncertainties, it is possible to say with some definiteness that the Taft-Hartley Law has had as bad effects as were predict- j long tho hold-out unions will refuse to comply is uncertain. New NI.RB'S Feet Still Dry In the first few months of NLRB operations under the new act, few cases were filed- The same thing happened after the Wagner Act was passed. Lawyers told employers 1 The spit contains millions of germs. In spite of city odrlnan- ces and laws prohibiting this practice In many places, people in gen- I do not seem to rcali/.e the danger. Someone who steps on a spot, where another has just spit carries the germs with him. The spit dries gradually, but drying does not kill the germs very fast—in fact not kill the germs very fast—in fact, drying may make it all the easier for the air too pick up the germs where they can be breathed in by anyone around. Ujly inrt Unhealthy Not only is spitting, sneezing, and coughing a danger to others, but it is far from beautiful to see sidewalks, platforms and other places littered with spots around which one has to step carefully. For health reasons alone, however, if for no other, the laws against spitting should be enforced and people should understand why this is a vital health practice. ; THE DOCTOR ANSWERS I By Edwin r.
