A Hopeless Boycott It is not lirml to understand :inil sympathize with Uiu sentiments of Or. Norbert Wiener, world-renowned nvilh- oivmticinn, who has declared n sort of siUlown strike jigninsl cooperation wiu) "irresponsible militarists." The Massachusetts Institute of Technology professor, by refusing to ivmkc a scheduled address hel'orc ;i Navy-sponsored symposium on Ihe problems of the new <-!ik-ulaUiitf machines, put into effect a previous . declaration that hu would release ti'i • further information thai would pass out of his control. The paper which Dr. \Veiuer was to have road was of a highly technical nature, lint lie pointed out that ft might have been useful in the, development of guided missiles. Thus he I'd; that lie would be contributing to the production of weapons of Iliads' slaughter, whose possession "can do nothing hut endanger us by encouraging the tragic insolence of the military mind." _;. ' Jljuiy scientists must have shared Dr. Woiner'fi feelings .since the ciosim- days of the war, especially those who helped develop the atomic bomb and .. who protested its use against civilians. It is probably a realization of practical difficulties, rather than indifference, which lias prevented until now such a determined stand as Dr. Wiener's. Dr. Wiener is really in the same; boat with those who, in World War I, sang "I Didn't liaise My' Roy to Bo a Soldier," and those who today oppose selective service and peacetime military training and our continued occupation of former enemy countries. They desire peace. Bui I heir efforts to achieve it only help (o make this country defenseless. Dr. Wiener's boycott is useless unless it is part of a firm stand by all scientists of the \vorld against the use of their discoveries for military purposes. A boycott of peacetime preparedness is worse than useless uii- less it is part of a guaranteed worl 1 movement toward disarmament. Such ji spontaneous movement is impossible now and in the foreseeable future. Distance, education and indoctrination, the barrier of languages and the shew nnwicldliness of people in the mass mal<e it imossible for popular sentiment to end war. For practicality's sake the efforts toward peace and disarmament must be made by governments. Needless lo say, many of those governments are the guides, not the guided. •Their representatives in the council of nations reflect the sentiment of the few who govern, not tin- many who are governed. So even if every American .scicnlhi. followed Dr. Wiener's lead, and every American manufacturer agreed never to accept another war contract, and the American people forced their Congress to disband the Army and Navy, the problem of world disarmament aim world peace would still rest will) flie- United Nations. Dr. Wiener spea'ks of "the traffic . insolence of Hie military mind." bill if is not, (he military mind (hat we have fo fear today. II. i.s rather (he diplomatic mind, whose view of the clear solution (o the problem of war is clouded by pride, suspicion, jealousy, ideological stubbornness and fear. Until that diplomafic mind see.s the light, all the rest of us can only sit by, hope for (.he best, and prepare . for the worst. BLYTimVTLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS 'THURSDAY, JANUARY 1C, 10-iV 'Depression' Rents, Throughout the <:ountry\ today then! is heard the appeals of landlords and owners for relief from "depression level" rents. Their appeals have reached.Congress and resulted in a demand that rent controls be ended I-'elj. I. No doubt there are many cases in which relief is justifiable, lint we wonder if when the rules were sel which now determine the ceiling, most ovvn- .ers did not give some thought to the possibility of occasional vacancies in Ihoir properties, and of a stislantial outlay of upkeep. During the war and thus far in the postwar era, most owners of livable rental projiorly have had JOO per cent occupancy of their dwelling units.. Shortage of material and labor and the eagerness of house hunters to get ;; dwelling in almost any condition have excused landlords lYum providing the customary amount of redecoration, repair and improvement. These compensations should be considered against higher .costs in any discussion of scrapping rent control. Housing is the second biggest item in most householders' budgets. There is no substitution or doing without, as in the case of food. Tlie lush days are over now, but the danger of inflation remains. We hope Congress will not add to thai, danger by ' hasty, ill-advised action on rents. m.. XXXII ' W ELL! " Sitilic >' said, and shut the door and leaned ay.iinst it. "Well, what's this?

"It was like this," she s^ici, and plunged into it—an i-vohorenl nan-alive, but .-ill of it, spring, summer, today's episode. Sidney listened stoically. "What was Richard, lirccn doing ihose months after you quit seeing him? Was he in town?" "In nnd out, he said. Why?" "If he always had Mrs. Kcrv's telephone number, it's funny he cudn'l call you sooner." "He WDS so offended. I had jumped lo conclusions, wrong ones and never Rave him a chance to explain.

"No, no! lie wouldn't—" "Isn't it all he said, though? And you just jumped to more ot those wrong conclusions. After Ashiron, what? He's leaving Ulakcsvillo for good. Are you! loo?" '-Wherever he goes, I'll go!" "Like the verse in the Bible. But suppose he doesn't want you l.-'Bging .''long? What did he say akoul that?" "Sidney!" Rose was weeping now. "How can yon Ihink such horrible things!" Sidney shrugged. "It's easy for me. I was born thinking things like lhat, lllipgs you'll never learn. I know Richard Brccn won't marry you. Not today or ever. This isn't an elopement, for him. It's a very different kind of party. He probably isn't the marrying type—or he has a wife- somewhere, a wife and kids." "How dare yoxi! I won't—won't stand it! Get away from that door!" "If Richard Brccn, whoever the dickens he is, wants you so bad lie can come here and get you." '•Sidney, you're a malicious meddler! I could kill you! But you can't interfere wiih my life. You can't! I'm going—" "No," Sidney said. "You're not." Reaching for the knoh, she opened the door, slipped out and locked it behind her. Hose's fists hammered on the panel once, twice, and not more. Sidney could hear her in there, sobbing. . . . X To K* Continued) uv i-irrivK XKA Washington CorresiJiindenl WASHINGTON — l NBA) — ionic-thing new was added to the Washington labor picture with ihc ssmmcc of nil 11-poltit labor rc- orm program by the Department of Commerce. j Heretofore in government admin- liative circles.

Briefly, it includes s'ticli principles us those: The public interest must ln> paramount in any iclations. Lnb'or practices which retnrd production should be eliminated. Employes must have complete !icc-dom to bargain individually. Violence- must be eliminated. Individual merit must be rcc- zod. There must be c<iuality before tin- law for both employe nml employer.
