Fpncy Boxing When Henry Wallace told the House Foreign Affair Committee that we should have to "change our whole approach" to achieve peace with Russia, one member asked him to define Hie new approach. "1 don't think it is possible to say specifically," the.third party candidate answered. Then he added that we should first have some new faces in the executive branch of the government. "1 don't believe it is possible to get the truth from the American press," he said. But he hastily added that he referred only to the covuniRe of Russian activities. When he was asked to explain how his criticisms of the Marshall Plan differed from the Communists', he said he was "not familiar with the Communist program." It is evident, from this that Mr. Wallace has adopted the bobbing and weaving style made famous by Jack Dempsey and a great many politicians. It's a great help to the office-seeker when the opponents start throwing them harder and faster. Without it, s lot of candidates would nevci- have been on their feet to answer the final bell.

Preparations Available There are also two preparations least to doll up the lady sailor. "Maybe," she observed, "there are certain things about a woman's sailor get-up that the committee doesn't know about." The committee was Interested. Indeed.! And the red-haired committee reported cocked a flushed ear and took notes like mad. Capt. Hancock didn't mention the new look o! the Waves. She didn't have to. Tt was obvious as she sat there with her skirt covering her shapley legs. But she did say something about a sailor's undershirt VIEWS OF OTHERS With everybody in the act, including the FBI, the big chiefs of Big Steel can probably imagine now how nationalized industries are born. All of a sudden "bipartisan policy" is a reality, as both parties in Congress polish their glasses for a close examination of the concerted rise in steel prices. The President turns loose "all interested agencies of the government" on the inquiry. Press and public cheer from the sidelines. And there are some who ponder the possibility that, in spite of legal safeguards, "monopoly capitalism" may be something more than a stock phrase of the left-wingers. The big chiefs answer back. They argue that the estimated ?6S,000,000 that the new price will cost steel users is only l-10th of one per cent of total gteel output. But they don't argue away the fact that the new price is also 68,000,000 bucks that somebody's got to pay. And they don't argue away those record after-taxes profits for 1047. So now the hounds of the law are in . full cry. The next question is what they will do to Big Steel when they have it treed. For there is a second danger in this price rise. One, obviously, is that it will help cancel out the good don? by the drop in food costs. The other, more remote, is that it may bring regulations that could get out of hand. The investigation will give leftists a wonderful chance to point out again that Big Steel's behavior illustrates one of the evils of our capitalistic system. They will say that steel is a basic industry that should be taken over by the government, or at least operated as a public utility. Actually Big Steel's behavior is rather a denial of the capitalistic system of free enterprise than an abuse of it. Competition is the life blood of private enterprise. And absence of competition is the principal sin that the steel industry is charged with in the present case. There will he a temptation, even in a Republican Congress, to throw the book at Big Steel. This isn't a capitol-labor matter. The price rise in steel has angered other industries, consumers, and a government that is at least talking about ways to bring living costs down. But corrective measures will have to be chosen carefully. Severe restrictions on steel would tend to restrict its users' activities, just RS steel costs altect the cost of a vast number and variety of products. To substitute government monopoly of decision for private monopoly would not help. If steel's leaders have a restrict. r «d MnM «f public responsibility—and The Parking Problem Objection!, to parking meters are being heard in aeveral nunrters, «nd the City Council, a* usual, it divided, certainly the plan should be lully explored before any final action Is taken. Bui the parking meter question is only incidental to the cential question now facing the city. Parking n.etcrs provide one approach to the parking problem and Its attendant tralllc difficulties. It is no problematics*! hazard of the future; it Is with us now. and it grows worse day by day. It stems from a simple mathematical equation—there arc more cars than there ajt. convenient parking spaces. The great virtue of meters—aside from the revenue they yield—is that they guarantee a greater number of turnover hi available parking spaces and simplify the task of checking parking violations. In ellect. they increase the amount of curb space available. Experience in aome citlea indicates that thq number of Individual cars parked In a given area during the peak hours may be more than doubled. • It Is true that pnvking meters alone will not, oiler a permanent, solution to Little Flock's parking problem. But meters, accompanied by an abrupt reversal In the city's prodigal policy of handing out curb cuU and parking restrictions to private property-owners, would help a great deal. These arc things the city can do with its present limited powers and limited resources. More elaborate apuroachcj to the parking problem—such as the construction of public or private off-street, parkins facilities—will have to be takeu up In time, but at this moment they arc, for many reasons, out of the question. The parking problem cannot be Ignored or put off until a happier rtny. Already It ]X)ints toward a sort of stagnation in the downtown area. That, bugaboo the city planners constantly warn against, decentralization, Is already under way as an increasing number of business firms move away from the old business district in order to provide adequate parking space for their customers. The time for action Is now. The tools already at hand should be put to us;. —ARKANSAS GAZETTE. By Peter Edson WASHINGTON. (NEAI—Henry Wallace left out a whole lot of paragraphs when he appeared before tire House Foreign Affairs Committee to rend his 12,000 word statement against, the European Recovery Program. Perhaps the most important lines omitted were: "While the Russians felt (hat they had reasons to donbt the sincerity of the Invitation to them. I think they made a mistake by withdrawing from the Paris meeting." available now which delay the clotting of blood and which can be j used !n those patients considered j likely to develop this complication.

Smarler than the Wacs in that respect. although the captain wasn't that catty about it. When the Waves ordered their uniforms they had a four-inch hem turned under on the skirt. When styles changed, easing the skirt toward the ankle didn't cost Uncle Snm or the taxpayer a dime. The girls did the Job themselves, with a razor blade, a needle and thread. But the poor Wacs coulden't do that. Their uniforms came from the tailors with only about half an inch of hem. The Waves now are fixed for any emergency. Not only do they have more than enough uniforms to go around, but they got a lot of spares from Spars, or girl Coast Guards, when that, unit was abandoned. Also plenty of hem there. And if the styles change again, the Waves are ready for a challenge. "A woman can run a hem back up on her lunch hour," the captain said. he wanted to believe.
