Obviously the Kremlin's growing list of American villainc.s is not meant to convince the non-Communist world of its truth. Its only puriwso seems to be to steep the regimented minds of the people behind the iron curtain in a mixture of fear, suspicion and hatred which will make any future Soviet policies scorn natural and inevitable. That path of withdrawal and isolation, however, is ' strewn with some disconcerting wreckage. It was .a path followed by Imler, Mussolini and the Japanese warlords. And, as John Foster Dulles pointed out in a speech which, with Mr. Marshall's, helped launch United Nations Week, they were contemptuous of moral judgments wound up dead amidst the ruins.

Ploeser's Restoration of Price Controls by Legislation Would Only Add Confusion, and Black Markets in Mpral Force in Foreign Policy • , The clarity and precision of miml which made Secretary of State Marshall n great general are beginning to inake themselves felt in America's international affairs. Mr. Marshall is beginning to give this government's fov- ejgn policy a shape and direction that it has not had since the war ended. ~ The State Department and the United States delegation to the United Nations now seem to be traveling the same road. There have been no bad stumbles since the awkward moment when it seemed that the "Truman doctrine" for Greece and Turkey had been formulated without much thought for ,th'e UN. It quickly became evident that this was an error of tactics and not of hr tant. The situation which caused the American move to aid Greece has been verified by the majority of a UN investigating commission. The facts behind Mr. Truman's actions will now be presented to the UN General Assembly with the urgent request that the Assembly take such action as it can against the acts of aggression by Greece's northern neighbors. Mr. Marshall told the American Association of the United Nations that fidelity to the UN is the cornerstone of our foreign jxjlicy. But he also indicated that this policy is going to depend for support upon "the great moral and political forces of the peoples of the T*brld" which, Mr. Marshal) said, 'fmust somehow be brought to bear with full effect through the General Assembly'" * This-may seem at first to be a rather weak prop for a good share of the burden,of our foreign policy. | « But the moral and political forces of worW opinion can influence world governments. Th«y cnft win support for American policy as it is clearly presented by Mr. Marshall. And, pei- ^' hi»pe, they can also help to obtain Rus*• sla's imperial communism witliin its When ileprcM'iiliitivos Walter C.

In the united States il hns flourished mostly in the inidwcstcrn farm belt—hardly a .stronghold of .socialism. Perhaps the answer could be put this way: Co-operatives are not individualistic, free enterprise Institutions. Nor are they socialistic. They arc not activities of government any more than are lorpnralions or partnerships.

Benetits lo consumers are desired and expected as a natural byproduct of the proper operation ot the system. The co-operative idea puts chiel emphasis on benefits to the customer. Rewards to risk capital are likewise expected ami desired. Cut they are placed secondary lo the interests ot the consumer. If Americans were laced with a choice between co-operatives and proprietary business 'as to which would be the dominant system, fiiey would do well lo weigh how much they could afford '.•} subordinate the incentives of speculative profit and the spark of economic adventure. They arc not so faced. Co-ops make up less than 2 per cent of the business units and receive but 0 per cent of the consumers' dollars. A good cast; can be made for the value ol n moderate amount of co-op competition in keeping private profit enterprise healthily aware that Oie consumers' interests are basic too. —CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR.

From Shamokin, Pa., came n communication from a friend who asked, in all seriousness, what high cost ol living?

Forget, 'cm, he said, and come to the Pennsylvania coal rriiii!! country, where a dollar still is worth one buck. And buys u basket full of food.

In Shamokin, ladies (and you. too, Secretary of Agriculture Clinton Anderson), a chuck roast can be bought for' 39 cents a pound, a rib roast for 35, and ground round for 29.

Bacon's 49 cents a pound Salami's 29—and likewise spare-ribs. Five pounds of lard goes for a dollar in Shamokin. Pork loins at 53 rcnls i'. pound are Ihe most expensive fresh mi) i in the store. Picnic h'iriis are 4U cents and meat loaf is 29. "Seeing is believing" the Shamokin storekeeper advertises. "Visit our store and see .the big displays of good meats sclliny at really sensible prices." That's not all. For a dollar he'll sell a doz=n cans of asparagus sour>.
