It pays to take a' little longer »nd do It right: Economic Pressure Can End Oatis-Type Fake Trials How can we prevent Russia and Its •1 sattelites from continuing to sei?,e inno- csnt Americans on false .spy charges? ' Nobody but a few Irresponsible senators lias suggested we should use or even threaten force. Force may evoke more force, with war the end result. De- ntruction and the death of possibly millions are R steep price to pay for the freedom of n few men. Especially aa there it evidence we can effect their release by other means. We can't be sure we slmll not have . war some day with the Communist world. But we are not likely to let it 1 commence over the trial of a William Oalis or * Robert Voider on fake grounds of espionage. Or over the prospect of more such trials. A more common proposal is that \ve »hould sever diplomatic relations with any "umlry which thus mistreats or threatens our citizens. Presumably no one seriously intends we should do this while an American is actually being held, since this action would isolate Mm ec:r. pletely from contact with the U. S. government. •Suppose, though, that we Hed<!etl how to cut ties with Hungary, which held Vogcler bat later let him go. Hungary's diplomats in America would, of eomise, have to x« home. We know all satfelile embassies and legations are spy centers, so to that extent \\c would gain. B»( we would also lose a listening post in Hungary, where we havp a sizeable staff and can observe—one way or another—what the Communists are doing. The kind of information diplomatic attaches gather is not made public, but it woud be risky to assume it if unimportant to us. With western reporters behind the Iron Curtain down to a handful, we're, getting a scanty enough portrait of life there. Perhaps they would like nothing better than to have UP shut up shop and go home, even at cost of one diplomatic spy headquarters. v Like them, we have spies, loo. Rut it's a lot easier for theirs to operate in a free country like America than for ours to get information in a police slate under strict censorship. They might well sec themselves the gainers in any break- off. What about economic sanctions? We've already imposed many trade re- striclions. We can do more to strangle satellite trade with us, and influence other Western powers to follow suit. Reporters filtering out from behind the Curtain indicate that these trade d« hurt. Despite all efforti at »e4f-cont«inm«nt > th« Communist world needs materials and products th« West ha». The Red« guffcr when th« flow is reduced or stopped. Economic sanctions seems the most promising field to work, Where, ** with Hungary, we may foar further arrests of Americans, we can perhaps gradually tighten a clamp on trade with the Reds. Aloviiig step by step ivouM permit us to guage closely the effect the restrictions were having, and also would leave us sompjhing in reserve. An immediate blanket ban would not give us this flexibility, would not keep the Reds guessing' as to what was coming next. This certainly does not exhaust the possibilities. Hut economic measures definitely can strike a painful blow, and we ought to look to them hopefully if the need arises. 'Black Ink-What's That? Views of Others Loyalty and Security I-asi April the regulations governing loyalty anrt spcui-Uy investigations ol government employees were tightened. Under the new rules a number or State Drpartme/it employees navi been rei'xaminecl.

Jr., and O. E. Clubb—leaked out. Does this mean thai these two men have been virtually proved "disloyal." as one inighl assume from some political and news comment? Emphatically no. Their loyalty t o the United States In not under question, officials state; it is rather A quVslion of their being "security risks." If the United Slates is to avoid the living hell of police-slate tyranny, it Is Important, thnt Americans imrterslflnrl the distinction between terms. Vitally necessary M It is to root out din- loyal persr-ns from places of influence, ft is equally necessary to protect Americans from being publicly branded as traitors when they may have don« nothing more than been Indiscreet in their dinner- table conversation or In choosing their friends. A number of personal factors may make » man a doubtful security His Judgment may be faulty while his loyalty and devotion to his country may b« exemplary. It ha* not even been proved yet that Messrs. Daviei; and Clubb ar« poor security risks. Until their cases have been decided by the Loyalty Review Boarri the question is an open one. Obviously, it would be Just as foolish to Insist on the Innocence- of a government employee without knowing all the relevant facts about him u It would be to assert his guilt on the basis o( an unpiovc:! charge.

'if Washington Column — FRIDAY, JULY 27, 19S1 More Wage Increases Ahead If Weak Controls Bill Passes WASHINGTON — fNEAV— Another round of wage increases U in store if Congress passes a weak antl-JnriAtlon bill. Th)K prospect triseB principally From three factor*: 1. If Congress does not put effective cont r o 1 s an prices, organized union labor leaders will demand additional wage increases to Tcier Cdkon make up for increases in the cost of living. Many mions—pdincfpally in ihe automo- ive industry—will get these increases automntically through GJI- clator claiuses In their contracts, Others will demand them through new collectiv« bargaining agreements. Tf ther* U no effectiv* price control, organized labor leaders will stage another TO Ik out nnd re- 'use to cooperate with the government's stabilization program. The of uninn leaders who met in Washington In A Juttle effort lo persuade Congress to continue a :ough price-control law, made this a definite threat. 3. Texas Rep. Win gat* Lucas* proposed amendment to the Be- 'ense Mobilization Act. reorganizing the Wflee Stabilization Board, would probably break that organization and its already badly bent efforts to hold the line on the wage front. The Luca.s amendment M-ould change membership of \VSD from equal representation of six public, union labor and manage- ! mcnt representatives to a predom- 1 inantly public board with only advisory .statxis. COMPLETE WALKOUT .Not only would the union representatives walk out from such a body, but management representatives have indicated they'd bow out too. Finding any capable citizen of eood reputation to head up a public wage advisory commitle wo.uld be difficult. Dr. George w. Taylor, present chairman of WSB, Is leaving the organization In September. Getting | a successor for him is already a i tough problem for stabilization officials, This combination of circumstances if what makes anocher round of wace incrpfi-r.- on the giddy inflationary spiral wem almost In- evuable. Kick-off for this increase might well come with the CIO Steel workers. Their current contract expires Dec. 31, 1951. It may be reopened for dtouwion 60 nays before expiration, or about Xov. I. Rubber, packinghouse and textile workers' ii"'^ns also have new negotiations coming up. Coal runs lo March 19. ItK)-. Total labor income, including ^-ages and salaries, is now running at the rate of about 165 billion dollars a year. Another 10 percent wage increase applied across the board for a full year would arid 16 billion dollars to the inflationary pressure. 1 ;. Cultfng that figure in half for a safe estimate would still add eipht billion dollars to the nation's wage bill. Pile it on top of the 12 to 15 billion dollars which Economic Sta- bilizatlon Director Eric Johnston says straight price increases will cost without adequate controls. What you come up with is a total In the neighborhood of 20 billion dollars a year »« the added costs of Inflation. Another round of wage increases. i if it comes, would be roughly the sixth sinc« the end of the war. There are no sharp cut-off dates on which it can be said one round left off and another began. There were lags in many industries. Some companies negotiated third and fourth rounds while others were still on their second. By major industries, the increases have been roughly as follows: STEEL: is»^ cents an hour in- ease in 1946; an average of 15 cents in 1947, an average of 13 cents in 1948. There was no wage increase in 1949, but pensions and insurance benefits were granted tn lieu of a fourth round. The fifth round averaged 16 cents, beginning in 1950 AUTOS: 18',i cents In 1946, 11"* cents in 1947, from 13 lo 14 cents in 1948. The fourth round in Ihe auto industry took the form of the long-term contract v.-ith =.utomat,ic cost of living escalator clause and other benefits which in 1950 amounted to an average of 10 to 11 cents an hour. In 1951 this contract has given wage increases of 8 cents an hour plus 4 cents incentive raise. COAL: si.85 a day increase in 1946. J1.20 a day in 1947. SI a day in 1948. 10 cents a day In I9aO and $1.60 in 1951. This brings the miners dally wage to $16.3?.

D. 1 have always objected to the term "the social gospel." The phrase is as objectionable a's ii would be to speak of "the individual gospel." More right and proper it is lo speak only of "the Gospel," as a gospel for individuals and for society, inasmuch as individuals live in social relationships and no man stands alone.

There is no problem in society today, or in the life of a modern nation, that is not exemplified, with some very clear teaching if men would seek it. in the concentrated history ot the Jewish people as set forth in (he old Testament histories and prophecies. The causes of social disintegration, of national disruption, decay, and d,asler, are there set forth as plain HS day; and there is no reason whatever to assume that those causes do not operate BS tragically for modern peoples as they did then. It was in the seemingly most pros, perous periods in the life of Israel that the seeds of downfall were pie of the North, and the exile of the people of the South. When the prophet Amos saw the righteous being sold for a pair of shoes, and the altars of religion being increased, without any corresponding righteousnes ar\d justice, He saw full well what the end would be. and he fearlessly declared His message, even though it meant his own destruction.

Under the modern moral code, however, one need not Jeopardize his social standing or consort with those beneath him m order to tvirn a fast buck.
