Bundles for Tito Our good friends in Yugoslav government, have purchased four crates of eurpulug radar equipment, the FBI lias discovered. These are the game good friends who, a couple of years back, 1 shot down two American planes which they said strayed across a corner of their territory, and caused the loss of American lives. They are the same good friends who have been throwing American soldiers in the brig when th«y strayed too close to the Yugoslav border in Trieste. War Assets Administration officials say this radar equipment is otit-motied by 'American standards. We assume, however, that it will do nicely for Marshal Tito's boys, who perhaps will use it to make doubly sure that they don't miss the next American plane lhat comes along. Western Union Exonerated After reading the news from Siam for • few days, we instituted a little research, the results of which we are happy to pass along. The name Song- gram, which has figured so prominently in dispatches from Bangkok, is really that of tin leader of the successful coup d'etat. It has nothing to do with those young men in this country who, • 'for a consideration, will sing telcpraph- •d birthday greetings over the phone or on the front doorstep. : American Aid and I European Socialism American aid should not be used to further nationalization of European industry, say* the National Association of Manufacturers. In & set of recommendations presented to President Truman, the NAM also urges that existing state enterprises should be freed of political control, and that American dollars be given to "private competitive enterprises" in the participating foreign countries i'ather than' to governments or their agencies." These recommendations may seem to hind the whole program of aid with some rather tight strings. But they do tackle a question which must be faced, and which is likely to increase in importance as Secretary Marshall's proposal moves from the planning to the operational stage. The most obvious weakness of aid restrictions is that they would give the Russian propaganda .guns a supply of fresh ammunition. Of course, the Soviet government will keep on attacking our aid program anyway. But controls, such as the NAM proposes, would -tend to support the Russian charges ; that the Marshall Plan's purpose is to dictate the domestic economic policies, of western European governments. In the case of England, the voters chose a government, by • large majority, which pledged itself to s limited program of state socialism. If the American government should follow the NAM suggestions, it would withhold aid from the nationalized British coal industry, which is one of the weakest links in that country's industrial economy and badly in need of assistance. At the same-time, it would be un- wis« for this government to pour money and goods into Europe without any control over their use. As Harold St**»en hit* pointed out, the protection ' and promotion of individual liberties it also a part of the American policy of anistahc*. ' Thiu far, nationalized industry has not iolv« th» poatwar problem! of any country leekJng American aid. If that aid should bt used to extend stale socialism, and if, under a broader socialistic program, Europe's plight should grow even worse, nobody would win. • Beside* preserving individual freedom, the main purposes of our European aid program are to relieve im- mediaU physical hardships and promote long-range economic recovery, without weakening ourselves. Thc concern is with people, no theories. So it seems to us that American goods and money should not be used to capitalize new socialistic enterprises that have no guarantee of .success. At the same time it does not 'seem right to withhold aid from nationalized industries now in existence, or lo give arbitrary preference to private concerns in every case. The chief administrative problem likely may be to avoid giving European Communists propaganda material that non-Communists will believe, and at the same time to avoid .subsidizing the Bocialix.ation of western Europe. The American government svill^ have to proceed carefully and, if possible, gracefully. VIEWS OF OTHERS Incentives to Produce General Electric Is enning prolH-sharing with rank-and-Ille workers because, says the company, it no longer acts as an Incentive to produce. The abandonment supports an argument made last year by the New York Herald Tribune: The Incentive works best when the employes must make a visible contribution to the business in return, when it is based essentially on volume ol production rather than on volume of profits. Such direct production incentives are offered In Kslser-Frazer's bonus for each finished car. The most spectacular example IK Lincoln Electric Co., of Cleveland, in which a system of piecework wages and annual Ixmuses Is given credit or annual earnings (including janitors but not executives in the average) in excess ol $5000 and equally spectacular price decreases over a period of years. G. E. drops out but others remain. S^ars, Roebuck has operated a plan since 1D16 In which the company contributes x fraction ol It-s net earnings to a pension fund, giving employes a lifelong interest in the company's success. Eiidl- cott-Johnson's plan started in 1010, based on average earnings and length of service. The mortality In Incentive plans Is high, but BO Is the birth rate. That is natural, because only experimental solutions are possible, and they must b« worked out company by company. Such a spirit of experiment is certainly wholesome because, as Senator Vandenbcrg told the Senate on submitting a 1039 report: The committee finds lhat profit-sharing, In one form or another, has been and can be eminently successful, when properly established. In creating employer-employe relations that make for peace, equity, efficiency and contentment We believe it to be essential to the ultimate maintenance of the capitalistic system. We have found veritable Islands of peace, equity, etficlency and contentment, and likewise prosperity, dotting an otherwise relatives turbulent industrial map, all the way across the continent. Tins fact is too significant . . . lo lie ignored or depreciated In our national quest lor greater stability and greater democracy In industry. Experience with incentives is mixed, but evidences of success already mount high enough to suggests that the "right" structure m enough industries could be a golden key to industrial peace and unparalleled productivity. —ST.

(UP)— ]Tlic question today is vhether thera I was a monogram on the lap rob* I we bought—we taxpayers, I mean— nctt fi. Meyers, while he wa.s riding in his royal blue, four-door Fleetwood Cadillac sedan. Chronic alcoholism is a disease. It cannot be helped by scolding or Incarceration. Most alcoholics are symptomalc drinkers who find release from their feelings through n- toxlcatlon. The old Idea that one- drink led to unlimited Indulgence Is not true In the majority of cases. Only a small percentage of those who Indulge In alcoholic beverages become chronic alcoholics. This type can develop their difficulty at any time In life. Alcoholics Anonymous members warn young men and women, who wake up feeling fit as a fiddle the morning after the night before, that they may become victims of alcoholism. Apparently, such persons have a greater tolerance for alcohol than the average person, or it seems to give them a release from their inhibitions. Chronic alcoholics should be dls- ilnguished from heavy drinkers. i lor this vehicle, too— war contracts—although we didn't'realize it at the time. Th» fact is a hefty chunk of our war bond money, which we thought was Boing for fighting planes, bought ultra-modern furniture for the general, pile carpet to soften hts footsteps, four air-conditioning units to keep him cool in the Summer, and a phonograph de luxe to sooth hi» nerves. The general, of course, didn't drive his sedan himself. We furnished him a sergeant from Boiling Field as chauffeur. We were so generous to Hie general, in spite of ourselves, that the Senate War In- vcsligiuing Committee still is tryinf to discover exactly how he wrangled it. It wasn't easy. Gen. Meyers awarded war plane contracts.
