Fatalism Plus Precaution Tu the face of almost daily airplane crashes throughout the world, and of 'the' grave public concern which they arouse, President Truman has announced hjs intention to keep on flying: He gives two reasons, He likes to fly, and lie feels that when your name comes up it doesn't matter whether ^'ou live aboard a plain or a train. . This, is not as static-ally accurate . as the airlines' figures on their improved safety record in l.n-16 over l<M. r >, but it may seem more persuasive to some. Probably airline officials are heartily grateful to (ho IVesklcnt, who, as all .should know by now, is a fearless air passenger w i, 0 sometimes insists oil going aloft in weather that gives veteran pilots the cold chills. A great many past and potential passengers, however, do not share Mr. Truman's courageous or realistic .or., 'fatalistic thinking. They're not even impressed by -Hie safety statistics, .coldly accurate though they be. They seem to be differentiating and less between domestic crushes or accidents to American foreigh-service ain-ral't and any others. 'Airplane wrecks are ..becoming, just airplane wrecks. Au.l 1 every new one is a further reason not to fly. • -' • This may be hysterical think ing. But to most of us an airplane wreck . is so very final. In spite of all the comparative records, there is always the chance that one may gel up and walk away from an automobile or train wreck, or survive a tumble down the cellar stairs. Not so with the usual " plane .crash. So our airlines stantl to suffer a hard blow if something i sl ,'t done before spring and better flying weather arrives. It i s 'not possible to put a finger on, any one source of trouble 'and say: "This is it." There are mechanical Jail tires, instrument failures • ."and pilot errors. There are bad yveath- , ei: ancUaci visibility. There are elab6ra- tions of all these factors. There are also "steps that can be taken, and Mr. Truman pointed one out when he said he hoped Congress would declare a policy of ;l ir safety. One im- mediate, practical need in such a .safety, policy, is the appropriation of more funds to the Civil Aeronautics Administration. The CAA seems to have decided at last upon instrument-landing- approach as the chief aid in bad-weather flying, with assistance from ground-controlled approach. This at least settles a longstanding argument. Rut the liudget Hureau has a record of lopping oft CAA appropriation requests. Congrojs has the power to restore them. Also, Mi-. Truman might take a hand in seeing that the CAA, which comes under Commerce Department •jurisdiction, makes haste to install all proven safety devices, including standardized equipment, on various typos of aircraft, when the funds for thorn are available. Pilot error cannot be legislated away or ruled out. Hut it can be lessened by reducing the chances of its occurrence. One may envy the calm surrender to destiny with which President Truman takes to the air. Hut we are all in favor of appeasing the gods of good fortune by reducing the possibilities of fatal misfortune. ) COURIER NEWS Overlooked Virtues The reasons behind, proposed legislation to ban industry-wide collective bargaining are apparent. The country already has seen what happens when bargaining breaks down in basic industries like coal and steel and industry-wide strikes are called. But recent days have shown the country another aspect of the controversy. An industry-wide agreement in the construction field has, set up machinery for voluntary settlement of disputes without strikes, liy mutual agreement contracts have been extended in a large segment of the steel industry Pending the completion of negotiations! Such extensions promise to become industry-wide. A' similar step has been taken in the New York dressmaking establishments, which- constitute almost the entire industry. There is also the intricate task of simplifying job classifications in the steel industry. .This work, which has removed the threat of a lot of potential disputes,'has virtually been completed ni the United States Steel Corp. and agreed to in principle by the big companies The nation needs protection from the economic paralysis <>f nation-wide strikes-in key industries.
