It's the CAA's Move The -United State* has llnw f;u' bein spared iiny air accident quite as ctaculai'ly tragic a.s tlie crash <>!' e planes which occurred in Shang- on Cliristmas nigiit. But that does mean that the t'og is thicker in China than it is in. America, or th:it American flying equipment is decidedly^ superior. " The probable answer is Ihat weather information is hotter here than it was in Shanghai, and that American pUjnes would have been grounded in Shanghai's Christmas weather. However, it cannot be said Unit a similar tragedy can't happen here. In Tact, theie arc times when it seems thai ^a(Vch a tragedy will be required to quicken the tempo of tho leisurely gov- OTTiment mid airline efforts to mak2 bsid--\yeather flying safe. .~'-Tw6 efficient means of bad-weather.-/landing were developed (hiring the >var, ground-control approach and in- .itrurncnt-laiuliiig approach. There are two schools of thought as lo whic-n method is better, and the resulting debate has contributed to the fad time, neither system is in use. There are other reasons, of course. The Civil Aeronautics Administration blames Congress for not giving it enough money to finish up expenmen 7 tation and development and get some sort of blind-landing method in operation, Then there are those who put the .major blame on CAA. These critics maintain that the CAA's dilatory passion for perfection has led it into ;m attitude of insistence upon conducting all research on a somewhat theoretical plane. It would be better, say the CAA critics, if if would authorize the installation of blind-landing equipment which is known to be workable and decidedly better than nothing, then make refinements suggested bv experience in actual use. Whatever the reasons for the delay, the fad remains that" today f>ad flying conditions offer the airline pna- .sengC)' n choice of slaying on the ground or talcing lo the air with a (food chance of being killed. Anyone 1 who talks with regular, occasional or potential airline customer.'; —and that includes most of us—must have been struck by the f/tct that more and more of (hem are expressing n din- inclination to do any flying in winter unless ft is absolutely necessary. . The fear of accident is prui(i>.hly fell more often than it is expressed, l-iiit the usual reason given is perfectly valid: Why plan a four-hour plaiw trip in preference lo ;i 2.1-hour train ride wJit'ii there is a possibility that tho weather will clone in for 2-1 or 48 hours? Thtf responsibility would seem to rest with the CAA, since blind-landing equipment will necessarily have lo be standardised. It is certainly as much Ihe CAA's job as it is the airlines' to try to prevent uccidents ;i iul to inin- imi/e the inconvenience and loss of lime and money which passengers s'lt- f'er when plane:; are grouii«efj. Home to Roost Joseph Cm-ran, president of the. Na- lionttl Mjiritime Union and the Greater New York CIO Council, has resigned his co-chairmanship of the Committee for ^Maritime Unity with tile charge Ihat unity is just what some of his OMU colleagues wero not trying !.o achieve. As a result he has ;i fight on his hands. A left-wing NMU group, headed by Joseph Stack, union vice president, is after his scalp and his job. Mr. Curran is a lough, two-fisted citixen who can hold his Own in most fights, but we wouldn't want to bet too much money on him in this one. For this time it looks ; l; i if he might be hampered by a large flock of chickens from tin; CIO convention which have come home to roost on the NMU doorstep. H will be recalled that the convcn- lion administered ; , cambric-tea rebuke lo tho Communists within the CIO unions. A resolution, of Communist co- authorship, pu[ the members on record as saying that they "resent and reject" Communist interference. Only that and nothing more. Naturally, this served as n green light lo the Reds, whose sensibilities are notoriously impervious to resentment and rejection. It i s a doubtful coincidence that Mr. Curran's implied slap at the Communists should be followed almost immediately by this left- wing attack. U would scarcely be surprising if similar activity elsewhere were to follow in the wake of CIO 1'residcnt Murray's policy of appcase- ment. 5Dd there were two hundred ol the csrtir.cau-s- engraved. r j'HKY were beautiful cci-liriealc:;. t'X'.'imsitoly lettered, iUeor;:t«t with the Indian chieftain's nc-ac 'id having a gooil dun! of wi * t« , r „„ *" """"• "•«' >•«•« lyjAJOR CAMERON was learning r that there is more to the oil .!*&P n S» than meets the eye. ph^vell, perhaps his first Im- Ih^^ti 0 "-^^ been a 'n'lUc"on £tL •".?.• S i dc ' SomeJ "*v the Major h^. thought then ol an executive who would do nothing more stren- uou« than sit—though that with «**r«atest d.gnity.

WASHINGTON COLUMN ^ IJY I'F.TER II1ISON N1;A Washington t'wrrc.spontlenl WASHINGTON, Jan. '>. INEAI — Navy blues are tocli'.y more of a feeling Ihan a color. Naval officials face the new Congress lashed to the must and garroted. First, they are forbidden to talk against the President's announced, plan for unifying the united services. .Secondly, the Senate uncl House Navi'.l Affairs Committees are about to be mc.-ked into the new Committees on the Armed Services. The admirals naturally [ccl that bath moves are detrimental to their jVavy. Senate committees on 'Military and Naval Affairs in the hist Congress imd 18 members each, a total of 30 senators. Tlic new Committee on the Armed Services will Imvc on: v 13 members. In the House the i«-o committees bad 'M members each, n total of CO congressmen. The new House Committee on Armed Services will have o:,iy 33 inemjcr.s. Since more than 3Q congressmen and 13 senators who served on the old committees were re-elected to Hie nun- Congress, there is :i big fight for places.
