Let's Co-ordinate On its first anniversary the Air Force Association, ;m organization of /former Army flyers, endorsed the proposed armed forces unification as "a definite step in the right direction." But it also expressed the hope a separate air force might eventually include the Navy's land-based aircraft, and that unification might be extended down from the present lop level. Lt. Gen. James Doolittle, the AFA's president, urged these developments in the interest of efficiency, effectiveness and economy. His arguments havu since been bolstered by two articles in Col- 'lier's magazine by W. B. Courtney, ; called "Will Russia Rule the Air?" iThese contrast the development of new air weapons by Ktissia and Britain, Jboth of which have independent nir forces under a unified command, with our own efforts. ,: ' General Doolittle revealed that until recently American research in the ; field of guided missiles was being ear- :ried on independently by the Army Air Forces, the Army Ordnance Department, and the Navy Bureau of Aeronautics and Ordnance. Army research has now been co-ordinated, lie said, , but it is still separate from Navy research in the same field. Obviously, such methods are a waste of money, time and skills. They would » be bad enough if we had a'comfortable lead in the development of new air devices. They are rather frightening when one reads Courtney's account of how far our wartime allies have gone inutile same direction. ; All the Courtney facia aro not new. But gathered together they form an impressive argument for putting our air research on a more realistic basis. During the war, says air. Courtney, we gave Russian engineers unlimited ' opportunity to study our aircraft pro- v duction methods. We gave British designers sufficient leisure to go ahead with advanced research while we built most of the aircraft and parts used in , the Western European theater. Today Mr. Courtney gives us the edge in such things as production ex- perience, airline equipment, airports, private flying and backlog of trained military flyers. He puts Russia in front on all points of foresight, research and ' future war potentials. England leads us in organized national research, electronics, jet engine development, and possesson of bases. England is building a $100,000,000 National Aeronautical Kstablishinent, pin lining (i Rational Gas Turbine E:i- labli.shment, and training leaders for both the RAF and the aviation industry at a national air college. Russia, of course, has the ultimate in integrated na'tional planning. The Soviet government is not accountable to its citizens for expenditures. Nor 's it telling anyone what's being done in a'lr and alomic research. Nearly -10 years ago Alexander Graham Bell said that whoever ruled the air would rule the world. That prediction's fulfillment may Ijo close at hand. We don't want to rule the world, but we don't want any other one country to do it, either. It is time that wo got coordinated and got going toward the future. One way lo start would be to follow General Ooolilllc's suggestion of integration, all down the line. Good Feeling or Fear? Some top men in government, business and labor unions are expressing what the diplomats call "cautious op- tomisin" thcso days. They feel that an era of good feeling in industrial relations may be coming on, although the feeling is almost too good to be true. And there are reasons at the moment to make that feeling m( ,i- c than wishful thinking. There aren't any nationally important strikes. A two-year task of job- classfieation iii the steel industry has been finished to everyone's satisfaction. Several important contracts have been extended during negotiations, when there might have been strike'; at the deadline. T'hil Murray and Ben Fairless seem to be on speaking terms. But is it good feeling or a healthy fear? Unions may be afraid of slap- down legislation if they don't proceed carefully. Industry may be worrying about possible strikes and portal-to- portnl judgments. Congress may be thinking, not that things are relatively quiet, that maybe some proposed labor legislation is a little rough for a lot of voters' digestion. Yel, if the. atmosphere is a little tense, it's also peaceful. Maybe somebody will lead with a left and spoil il all. But right now collective bargaining semis to be working, and all's approximately right with the world. The q«erUo™Uxlliy"rs~vlicunri r 'tl«r'EnkVrn~ and Western worlds will find :i way of living together In peace.— The Rev. Murlin NiPinoellcr.

"Parker!" she whispered. t was n cry of compassion which 10 immediately mistook for something else. "You will marry me, won't you, Cassie? Darling, 1 love you!" A little of his cxullance echoed i her own heart. It was good to have someone want you, need you. It was exciting to be loved. And it softened thc bitter remembrance of Mike.

S. career diplomat named George Messer.siniUi was leaving his [jost as Consul General in Buenos Aires lo become Consul General in Berlin, lie told his wife that there would some day be a revolution in Argentine to overthrow the big landholder dictatorship.

Thc Argentine which Ambassa- ' dor Me.ssersmith saw on his first our of duty had a deep-scatcii intreri of the U. s. That hatred stlil lingered. It had been born of feeling of inferiority, superiority and resentment of U. s: host and month disease quarantines against the import of Argentine cattle and meat products. i Because of its mistrust of U.
