As the only native inhabitants, are they to have no rights of self- determination'.' The penguins are a model community. Except for a few jealous spats at mating time, they live in unoffending peace. It is n |>ily that this lust outpost of harmony must he disturbed. But it seems that if there remains on this globe a territory to quarrel over, however useless and ruthless it may be, nations arc bound and determined to quarrel. All Hands on Deck, Breakers Ahead!

Price Hike in Steel Adds to Inflation Pressure It is encouraging to see that the advance in steel prices has caused as much interest— if not as much anger and political heat— in Congress as the drop in food costs in recent weeks. The Joint Economic; Committee, headed by Senator Taft. wants to know why this $5-a-ton rises in semi-finished products, why it takes place at this time, and how come this uniform sum was announced almost simultaneously by the big steel companies. Those are pertinent questions. One reason given for the increase is that coal and scrap prices have gone up. A steel company officer, asked if it was also meant lo take care of expected wage increases, said no, steel prices weren't high enough to compensate for past increases. Yet the President's economic report last month showed that profits of the industry's leading members in 1947 would amount to more than §430,000,000 after taxes — almost double the biggest profit of any war year and about three times the 1939 profits. Steel spokesmen say that the price advance is "nothing to get alarmed about," because it affects only a small percentage of total output. That reminds us of the visitor from India who was complaining that the American press had exaggerated the importance of the riots in his country, which actually had affected only 5 per cent of the population. He forgot to add that 5 per cent of India's population is 20,000,0110. The steel price increase is 10 per cent, and applies to 1 ! per cent of the industry's output. Well-informed gucss- ers say this may add $08,000,000 a year to consumers' bills. They also think that the present rise will be followed by an upshoot in the price of finished products. People in the industry defend their current high profits— and, by inference, another price hike to keep them high — by saying that these profits are not out of line with those of other advancing commodities. They also point to the gray market as proof that bidders are prepared to pay more than the industry is asking under "voluntary price control." The first explanation is a broad onc, and it ia contradicted by the slump in the grain market with its resulting cut in food prices. The gray market in steel is, of course, the result of an excess of demand over supply. The industry will be hard put to contradict Sen. Ralph Flanders' statement that "in an industry as fundamental «s steel there are public questions involved as well as questions of private business policy.

Warm fighting still lies ahead. Senate debate can be long—long—and parliamentary maneuvers treacherous, opixisilion in the House is stronger than in the Senate.

By .skilllul management he has marshaled a unanimous vole In Ills own powerful Foreign Relations Committee. At the same time he has split the enemy forces and reduced many redoubts of doubt. The move to avoid a clash between ERP costs and Republican lax-cut plans is only the latest example of these tactics. Senator Millikin U said to be thc plan's actual author. He would find $3,000.000.000 for F.RP— without apparent pain to taxpayers. This would be taking this amount out of tins year's fiscal surplus instead of out of next year's taxes. Earlier plans called for using thc whole surplus as a' payment on the Federal debt.

The $3,000,000.000 would lie regarded as a windlall—the unexpected leturns from 104 i taxes. This newspaper has favored rir-bl payments belore tax cuts, and we still believe that llicre Is more danger of inflation than deflation. Debt payments are the most effective instrument the Government hns employed In curbing credit inflation, and having something In hand—the extra surplus —may yet prove essential in combating inflation; But the recent drop in prices lias caused some predictions that use of the full surplus for curbing credit, would precipitate a "bust." Between the Democrats who want to keep everybody happy until November ut least, and the Republicans, who want lo hand everybody a tax cut. thc Millikin plan Is likely lo find a majority. This would mean that ERP costs—first estimated at H tolal of 530.000,000.000 (by thc 16 nations), then $11,000.000,000, with SO,800,000,000 lor the lirst installment—would, look very much less burdensome. Senator Vandenberg had already brought the charges on 1918 taxes down lo $5.. 300.000.000. Thc Millikin plan pulls that down to $2,300,000.000. This does not cut the actual cost. Thcic will be strenuous eftorts to reduce it. But the plan makes EHP's lirst costs look far less formidable—and lar more acceptable to Republicans, who see Ihe way cU-arcd for their cherished tax- cut program. Senator Vandenberg and Secretary Marshall have met the objections to ERP administration being controlled by the State Department. They huvc agreed to a ouc-yc'Ar appropriation, giving Congress a new chance to review Ihc program in l'^ months. They have agreed to other changes Ilia', remove real or fancied objections. Have they given up too much? Will opponents now press harder for more concessions? Wi do not think so. The Vandcnlx'J g moves have been flanking aclicns. not rMrcals. No essential has been surrendered. Instead, thc weakness and confusion of opixments have been disclosed and exploited. ERP still needs improvement and care. But we believe it is over thc hump of oppasitnm in Congress. CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR of Jnrisdictional fights between 1111- : twecn rival AFL craft unions. Den- !
