Coup in Czechoslovakia Embarrasses Third Party if the only reason for Premier Stalin's postwar policy is fear of American "imperialism," it is unlikely that iie would have okayed the Communist coup in Czechoslovakia. 1C he hud any regard for the American third party that would guarantee peace by giving him free reign, he probably would not have embarrcssed that third party by this aggressive act. The third party lias every reason to be embarrassed. For President Benes gave the Communists as free a rein as was possible and still preserve a semblance of parliamentary democracy. And the -Russian-directed Communists showed their appreciation by seizing complete control of the Czech jjovenimeni. There was a bit of window-dressing to justify the Communists' action. But even they didn't seem to take it very seriously. The Communist-led police searched the National Socialist Party headquarters for several hours on the first day of the uprising and "discovered" documents supposedly revealing a conspiracy of armed revolt against the state. The Communists' subsequent actions were not what would be used to quell a revolt against the status quo. In the first place, they destroyed the status quo They did such things as turn the legal owners out of factories and other business places and. replace them with national manager" This scarcely comes upder the head of defense measures. There seems to have been no i.iito opposition to the Communists in c.echl slovak,a so long as they operated within the framework of the republic and permitted some democratic freedoms As President Benes said, "It is clear to me that socialism is a way of lite desired bv «fl overwhelming pan of our nation ;, But he added, "I believe that with *>.

But the in- •ult it no answer to give the voter* whose support Mr. Wallace is seeking. A policy of .softness and subservience cost Czechoslovakia her freedom. Would the same policy satisfy Russia and preserve freedom in the rest of Europe i'f the United States should adopt it? That is a question which iUr. Wallace must iui- swcr honestly if he is to justify Hie claim that his political gospel holds the key to world peace. BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Springboard? SATURDAY, MARCH 6, The Payoff The congressional passion for investigation continues unabated. Now Democratic Senator Lucas wants to investigate how a Republican-controlled committee intends' to spend its money in an investigation of how the executive departments spend their money. Social Security Payments Payments of old-age and survivors' insurance under the Social Security System should be Increased. Climbing prices have srmrply lowered the purchasine power of the modest benclils provided by the Government's social insurance. The time has plainly arrived for raising the monthly checki to retired workers and their dependents. As Lewis Merlnin of the Brooking Institution has pointed out, In his book, "Relief and Social Security"; One cannot read the literature on social insurance systems without appreciating that their sixrlal and economic utility may be almost completely destroyed by changes In the levels of prices and wages. While that slagc Is nowhere near in tile United Slates, the mere listing of the present payments makes the desirability of their revision sc!t- eviclent. The highest benefit allowed a single man who is insured at Die age or gj years amounts to $t-UO a month. Actually, the average payment on June 30, 1947, when the last national survey was made, came to $24.10. when a retired worker has a wife who Is also 65. the maximum for the two is set in law at SG6.60. In practice, the payment to the pair averaged $39.20 * month. And for i family, the top permissible monthly figure Is $85. while the average given a retired worker with two or more children was found to be $47,90 Translating these payments to a weekly basis makes their meagcrness still more apparent Fortunately, things seem to be moving toward laislng the hencllti Labor organizations are not alone m advocating an increase. Life-insurance executives who havs specialized In social security lecommcnd higher payments. A short time ago the Social Security Board in Its annual report urged lifting the benefits, and now Harold Knul- son IR) . chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, indicates some Improvement may be undertaken this spring. As originally written in 1935, the Social Secur Hy Act planned much smaller pensions for the present lime than are mw being paid. Tne 1D39 amendments had the effect of raising the earlier- year benefits materially and lowering the long- range ones to compensate. A further boost Is now necessitated to help hundreds of thousands of the elderly. —CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR.
