Lewis walked out of the American Fcc\cr.ilion of Labor he announced his departure with this brief message: "We disaffiliate." But when Sen. Glen H. Taylor walked out of the Democratic Party the other day he was not content with such a simple valedictory. He had a lot to say — perhaps even one sentence too much. The singing cowboy from Idaho confessed that he felt good to be free of big-city bosses. He was glad he was riot obliged to follow a program .laid down 1 "by Mr. Pew, Colonel McCormick, Senator Taft and the National Association of Manufacturers." He rejoiced thai he could "come out swinging" as Henry Wallace's running mate "without fear of stepping on the prejudices or privileges of some unsavory associate _ no Pauleys, no oil, no Wall Street, no cen- erals." v Probably Mr. Taylor should have stopped there. But in tiie press conference that followed his radio address reporters asked him about the report that. Communists were flocking to the third party standard. "I'm glad to have their vote. I'd be glad to have the votes of bank robbers if I can get elected to do what I think is right," he replied. What Mr. Taylor thinks is right is obviously what Mr. Taylor wants to do So let us put his statement this wny "I'd be glad to have the votes of bank robbers if I can get elected to do what I want to <!o." There is the essence of the worst tine of cohtical bossism. And we are not twisting Mr. Taylor's words to .state "• Ask any boss, "D o yo ,, think that ^vhat you are doing is right?" and how many do you think would answer no? Mr. Taylor now thinks himself free of unsavory associates." But he and himself or crook uid then proceed to »H I think it right." p occed to Oo Hat lut way i. th. way O f th , Hitlers, the Huey Longs and—to come down to cases—the sitlcshow politicians whose chief appeal to the voters is * banjo, cowboy clothing, and a repertory of hill-biily songs. BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS A Low Blow At a meeting of writerg and actors held in New York the other day to protest "censorship in the arts," John Garfield suggested that the group hold a mass rally about the time that Hep. J. Parnell Thomas resumes his Un-American Activities Committee investigation of Hollywood. The actor's reason, as quoted by the New York Times, was "so we can make him sick again." He referred to the near-fatal hemorrhage that Mr. Thomas suffered recently. And it seems to us that if Garfield is cjuoted correctly, he has hit a low that those whom .he criticizes have never even approached. It is unfortunate for the actor's associates that the worth of a cause cannot be divorced from' its spokesmen. We hope for the sake of creative freedom that Garficld from now on will bring to this fight for artistic liberty the adult approach and basic good taste that it deserves. VIEWS OF OTHERS Farm Price Support Should Be Continued Up to Congress is the Important question of continuing government support for farm prices. Present guarantees of BO to 92 and one-lmir per • cent <for cotton) ol what prices should be in relation to those the farmer pays, will expire. December 31. SUIl left, will be a requirement for government support of some staple crops Hi 52 to 75 per cent of fair prices in relation to the farmer's costs; and Dei-mission for support ol other [arm prices, but no guarantee. Congress should act to remove the uncertainty in this situation. A large production ot food and colton is still needed. And farmers cannot be expected to do their utmost to supply it, i[ they are in doubt as to whether they will get prices allowing them a living return in this high-cost time. Government, guarantees may be regarded as a kind of insurance that we shall heve enough food and cotton. The cost, under a well-deviled plan would be small in comparison wiih taking the risk ol a shortage. Some have blamed the government support ot farm prices (or the high cost of food. But that argument is overemphasized. This is evident Irom the fact thai most farm prices are well above the government guarantee, even since the recent break in commodity markejs. They simply rellect heavy demand. And. on the other hand, a few prices, such as lor citrus fruits, Irish potatoes and eggs, have fallen below the guarantee point, showing that support cannot be fully effective when supply exceeds demand. But it can help a great deal. And It will be to the broad interest of ail for Congress to provide a fair amount of support, to cushion a possible drop of farm prices. —ARKANSAS DEMOCRAT.

Soviet Policies Find Some Measure of Support Among the Chinese, Marshall Tells Congress Rv P^fpr F^cn« i -, , _ By Feler Edson N'EA Washington Correspondent Truman doctrine on Greece ami Turkey or aid to China finally leads to an argument over U. S. Russian policy. It isn't surprising, therefore that when Secretary of state George Marshall presented his $570,003 0"0 Chinese program to the House Foreign Affairs Coiflmitlce, the questioning developed into a frec-lor- »11 that covered the globe but bounced back frequently on u, e Russian question. Congressman John M. vorys (R., Ohio) began it when he ashed if the situations in Greece and china weren't similar. If it's all Bright to nlsm In Greece, why not in China? Marshal! pointed out some differences. Most of the people in side of the guerrillas. The guerrillas got their support from outside Greece. Marshall's intimation was that in North China the people are actively supporting the Communists. Congressman Karl Mundt (R., S. D.) raised thc question of u. S. terrify western Europe. Bluntly Mundt said he wanted to kno-.v costing Ihe O. s'. money all over thc world? Outlines Aims of U. S. Policy These were serious challenges With apparent calmness. Marshall patiently set to work to answer With respect to the Morgcnthau plan. Marshall said General clay in Berlin had only recently declared tnat he considered Germany an important part of European economy and that, recovery was essential. Marshall also pointed out that U. S. representatives were now meeting m London with the British ami French. Their purpose was i (o make Germany economically i strong—short of allowing her to'be- , come a military threat. A further I purpose was to lessen the burden on I As for thc rest of the world Marj shall,said the U. S. had an interest ] m the Far East, the Mediterranean ; Europe and-Latin America.

He mentioned that last year 30=0 Russians had been admitted to Mundt demanded a stiffening °of Simple to Break, Hard to Make Marshall admitted the situation was disagreeable. But the U. S was struggling for certain freedoms Reciprocity had lo be carefully weighed for its end results. "It is simple to break off negotiations" said Marshall, "it Ls hard to make them up." Congressman Walter Judd (R Minn.) raised the question of-the Yalta Agreement which gave 30- yrar Manchurian port and ra'l rights to Russia. Marshall had "o admit he had no part in making the terms of that agreement, though he attended the Yalta Conference as chief of staff. At that time he felt it important for Russia to commit herself to Manchuria to break Jap power in China. Today's difficulties over the Yalta and Potsdam Agreements were the same, said Marshall. They -were in trying to get Russian compliance to statements that were in themselves clear.
