In the face of this, prolonged debate over whether Kit rope needs, and we can afford, a Marshall Plan seems dangerously academic. Lost Sheep Recent meetings of Southern governors and "old New Deal" liberals indicate that both groups, for different reasons, aren't enthusiastic about President Truman, Henry Wallace, or any presidential candidate Ihe Republicans might name. A possible cure for this political homelessness might be for these poor little lambs who have gone astray to get together and form a ''Wbiffenpoof Party." Do You See a Moral in This Picture, Folks?

VIEWS OF OTHERS Czech's Plight Strangely Like Decade Ago There is something weird and nightmarish about the news from Checho- slovakia. It brings a feeling that all this has happened before. And it finds the world looking on helplessly. It is nearly ten years since Hitler moved into Czechoslovakia, with the blindly hopeful connivance of Chamberlain and Daladier at Munich. It is within a few days of nine years since Hitler dissolved the Czechoslovakian republic. Now history is repeating itself in that unhappy country. .•• The present Communist uprising shows minor variations in the Nazi pattern, but the essentials are the same, the Communists had a legitimate majority in the Czech government, just as Hitler had a more-or-less legitimate position in the Sudetenland. But partial power would not satisfy either. In 1933 the Nazis fired the Reichstag building and blamed the Communists as an excuse to start a reign of purge and terror. In 1948 the Communists charged President Bones' party with a plot to overthrown the government. And until there is proof to the contrary, it is safe to believe that their excuse was as phony, their motives the same, as the Nazis'. The Russian Communists have been aided by native adherents in Czechoslovakia and the Balkans, just as the Nazis were in Czechoslovakia and Austria. But in each case officials have been on hand from headquarters to direct the show. In the present instance it is Soviet Deputy Foreign Minister Zorin. There are other parallel?, but there is also one big difference. The Communists are having a much easier time ot it. Europe was literally up in arms over Hitler's demands in 1938. War was postponed because Chamberlain and Daladier believed, or professed to believe, that the Sudetenland would satisfy Hitler's hunger for territory and power. Today scarcely a voice is raised. There seem to be two main reasons. This seizure of power in Czechoslovakia is ostensibly a domestic matter, though neither the UN nor any of its members can be so naive as to think this is actually the case. Further, nobody wants to go to war to save Czechoslovakia's independence. And even if anyone did. no country except the U. S. could undertake the job. Perhaps the fate of Czechoslovakia is no sadder than the fate of Finland, Poland, Hungary, and the Baltic and Balkan countries. Yet there is a difference. The Czech government was a • good ; neighbor to Russia, less through fear than through choice. The honest, courageous Dr. Benes treated the Communists fairly. But he also preserved ' aom* element of democracy in spite of Secretory Snyder on Taxes Secretary of the Treasury Snyder says it would be unwise to cut taxes enough to reduce Treasury revenue "below present this time." Why? Because, he answers, a balanced budget and "adequate retirement of the public debt" are indispensable. Quite so. But, Judging from press reports of his Chicago address on Monday last, it did not occur lo Mr. Snyder Ihnt there are two factory coi)_ trolling budget results, Income and outgo. Or., If that fact did occur to him, he must have assumed that, any substantial reduction of the government's expenditures, to offset tax rate reduction and preserve a surplus for debt payment, was out of the question. Why can't we have enough governmental economy to afford our people some relief from what la practically a war-made tax load? Is it because no Congressional majority can be mustered in an election year for dismissing a horde of unneeded federal employes, or for postponing public works projects of doubtful usefulness but local vote appeals? Mr. 3nydcr Is reported to have said that 79 per cent ol the government's expenditures budgeted for fiscal 1949 was war-related. Does thru mean that every item composing the 19 per cent is untouchable? We cannot believe it and we have a lively hope that Chairman Taber of the House Appropriation* Committee will not be persuaded to think to. The Treasury head ii further reported to have nid thai the 1948-49 budget includes J7 billion for proposed international commitments, others, protagonists of our mission to save the world with dollars, have been lelllna us that E.R.P. and related programs, if generously authorized, would only m.iintain our foreign aid at about it.s present annual rate, which they casually estimate to be • bout J4.5 billion. Mr. Snyder would earn the gratitude of his countrymen if he should give them a bill of particulars for the »7 billion he seems willing to dump on ilie world In ti'.e coming fiscal year. He might also any why he thinks they should be unrelentingly taxed for the dumping. We are all for a balanced budget and debt reduction. But there are more ways to keep the government cat alive than choking It with tax butler. —WALL STREET JOURNAL.
