Dnolittlc in clinrge of a special committee to investigate nir safety is cornrncnrlnhle. Recent air crashes not only have stirred considerable fear; they have clouded the issuesi We need clear Hpht and wise recommendation in tin's field. One of file most perplexing aspects of the problem is this question of how near airports may be safely located to built up city areas. Newark airport is closed today he- cause the outraged citizenry of nearby Elizabeth, N.J., scone of three spectacular crashes in hvo months, presume the field iies too close to their community. Yet f)2 of 100 major airports in this country are closer to their respective cities than is the Newark field. LaGuiirdia Field, on the north shore of I.onp Island in Now York's borouph of Queens, was of course badly overburdened immediately following the closing of Newark. Its daily flight load shot np from 520 to RSO a day. By shifting flights to other fields, cancelling some and consolidating others, LaGuardia is no\v reducing that load by 22t> flights daily. Note that this cut brings its daily total to l">4. well below the old figure before the hi); move from .Newark. This again reflects official response to citizens' complaints. Xow tho emotion:'!! reaction of people who sec planes dropping in their midst is wholly understandable. In Hie Kli/'.abolh case, the indignation had built up to a point where it simply could not tie ignored. But the response aviation officials have made at Newark and I.nGu.irdia rc-.'it solution. Pursued lo its logical conclusion, it would mean the prompt closing and eventual moving ot' more than lit) oilier principal airports in the United States. ruder present umimercial and military tKit'fic conditions, the closing would moan ;\ir paralysis. And a general move to more remote aroiis would be utterly prohibitive in cost. Thi? is not intended to suggest we shoiild not wherever possible supplement existing fields with new facilities to care for the ever increasing burden of air traffic. It js merely to point out that the practical answer docs not lie in wholesale shutdowns and shifts. A poll of pilots flying in and out of New York disclosed that almost unanimously they would choose lo try to land at Newark rather than other fields if they were in difficult strait?. This tends to confirm the official claim that New- BI/rTHgVTLLB (AKK.) COURIER NEW? ni'k is nmonjr the safest fields in the United States. The quality of the field and its nenr- ness to Kliziibclh had nothing whatever to do with the crashes in that area. It was only the rarest coincidence which produced that situation, since the field's safety record up to that time was well- nigh perfect. At J.aGuardia there will now be •151 flights daily instead of 520. Is that any assurance that accidents of the type which plagued Rliznbeth. will not occur in the future? The answer is no, since, none of them anything lo do with the density of traffic. Certainly no airport in the nation ought to he burdened with excessive traffic, nor so located that its operations are a continuous menace both lo air passengers and ground residents. Hut mere proximity to built up areas should not be an automatic black mark against any parliciil.'ir fioM. The Duolillle committee has its work cut on( for it. It will not he easy either to sift the facts or to dispel the fog of emotion lliat now surrounds the problems of air safety. * It's a Poor Epitaph When licp. Robert [,.

Views of Others Questionable 'Routine' Ml'-ere is, svn read In Washington dispatches, * h-dorrtl Inw which "bars a fornnor employe from prosecuting a claim peiulK)(f ngainsl the government, white he was employed, [or two years following his employment." Treasury regulations go further nnti "proliihit n former employe from rcp- rescntinc a taxpayer In any case If he worked on that cruse for the government, regardless ot liow lan^ he has Ijeen out of government service." Evidently there were and nre sound ami com- pcllinK reasons tor the law and the treasury regulations, else they would not hnve been adopted. But now It appears thai neither law nor regulation has been "strictly enforced." In the case of Joseph D. Niinan. former commissioner of Internal revenue, the treasury department disclosed last Monday that Mr. Hunan's law firm had received "special permission" to handle 102 tax cases fcnfore (lie internal revenue bureau. The members of his law firm were bureau employes under Mr. Nunan. Some of these raws are now under scrutiny by n congressional subcommittee. The disclosures renarrflnR them seem to justify that scrutiny—while explaining also thp wisdom nnrl need of the law and repilntinns apparently "Waived' for Mr. Nonan ami his associates. Waivers of this sort to ex-officials of the revenue cicpaTimcnt arp described hi another treasury reforrnre to them as "routine." Trip, regulation dcrmcd necessary in the public interest apparently was suspended frequently a.s a matter of departmental practice. The results of that official "routine" arc not edifying. Have the disclosures of those results prompted the treasury authorities to forbid the further grant of waivers? or dees the waiver "routine" flourish as before, regardless of the results? —Ne^v Orleans Times picayune SO THEY SAY Thrr* c«n hf* t\o justiTirntInn for a military syptom whereby iudividiidlfi are placed in jeopardy twice ami even (hrice. while others evade mili- tnr>' ^eivjce.—MaJ.-Gca.

SATURDAY, MARCH 1, Iff* 'Boo!' Peter Edson's Washington Column — Variety of Motives Are Behiml Charges Against Munoz-Marin This is the second nf two columns on Puerto Klcn.) SAN JUAN. Puerto Rica. 'NEA) —Behind tho charges o( "dictatorship" no 1 * being hurled nt. Purrto Rico's first elected governor. Luis are R variety or motives. The charges have l)ccn marie on he floor of the U. S. Senate by Republicans Owen Drcwstcr of Mnine and Jolm M. Duller of Maryand. nnd by Democrat Olin P. Johnston of South Carolina. Puerto Rican officials sny Senator Johnston's interest is easy to account tor. It Is traced here to Leonard D. Lons. E Charleston, South Carolina, bulkier. He nnd his brother ,.I. C. Long, have been frequent, and heavy cnntr-butnrs fn Democratic politi- ctil campaign chests. In Puerto Riro, Leonard D, I/Mr.: ha. e . hnc! co-litrac;,> for six Viousini; projects rontain- I'fler Ertsnn |,,g l n R! ) EOme 11,000 mills and valued at S65 million. Two of project.? were federal low-cost housing developments to help rid Puerto Rico of Us worst slums. Four apartment hotols and A duplex bungalow project are still under construction. Leonard D. Long also has pending in Snn Juan a lawsuit against the Puerto nican government, claiming one million dollars tax exemption for the development of a new industry. This claim has been denied by Federal Court and by the Federal Court of Appeals in Boston. Long is ntnv snina before a Puerto Rican jinx court. Eventually he may take it (o the Supreme Court. TICK STORY BEHINT) THE STORY Senator Johnston's Interest in this million-dollar lawsuit is of course the natural interest of any j sofon in the welfare of a constituent. Back o[ thK however. Is another story. : When Leonard D. Long fi rs t pro - pn'erl his Puerto nican housing developments in 1946. there was no 'Puerto nican tax exemption law to aid new industries. i Aflrr the law was passed in 1917, • :"}' Loi'-K Rot a letter from Jesus T. Pinero. then iriveniDr of Puerto Rico, saying thnt in his opinion, the Lnna interest* were entitled to this exemption. After his term as governor expired. Pinero went to | work for (he Long interests. ] The wtv governor. Luis Munra- Marin. tonk tile position that Indians had been building houses on Puerto Rico long before the Spnn- ' tards and the Americans came. Housing was therefore not a new industry end not entitled to tax exemption. This position was confirmed by the government's Executive Council and the Industiral Development Corporation. Long's reaction to (his was to charge that he was being persecuted. He hired a press agent in Miami nnd began to charge the Munoz government with dictatorship. "E! Munrlo." leading Spanish daily In San Juan, investigated the charges fully and in a scries of ar| tides showed thai, far from beini; persecuted, Long had been shown every consideration In modifying building codes to get his projects going. Back In Washington, Senator Butler's in Piierlo Rico is e.v- ; plained solely on the grounds of his j interest In government economy. I Senator Builer admits he has never | been in Puerto Rico. He estimates that U. S. government expenses in Puerto nico have been as high as a billion and a quarter dollars for | the last 10 voars. 1 U. S. EXPENSES IX PUERTO nif.'O The figure given In Puerto Hico Is a little under a billion.

The DOCTOR SAYS By EDWIN P. JORDAN, M. D. Written for NBA Service Speech Is terribly Important for getting along In the world, and it Is not surprising, therefore, thai parents sometimes worry If their children do not learn to talk as fast or as clearly ns they think they ought to. Q- -What effect does a split uvula have on a child's speech? Our little four-year-old boy is slow in talking. Sentences are now being formed but some words and sounds are not clear. Mrs. R. N.

And he Is n- ~anie<; us one of the most Influential men In the Senate »s a result of the leadership he holds In th» Southern group. There are reason* why there has been heavy pressure on Russell for several weeks to enter the campaign. • » • A REVOLT AGAINST Truman been brewing in the South since the State Rights rebellion of 19*8 srlpped 39 electorial votes from ths total Truman normally could bav« expected as the Democratic nom- ince. For the past five months, antt- Truman moves hnve been chartered under the leadership of Sen. Harry Byrd of I'irginia. Gov. James P. Byrne of South Carolina and Oov. Herman Talmadge of Georgia.

A—There would be millions of .' didn't West continue spades anyway when he saw the nine of spades appear Irom his partner's hand? The answer wns clear: East could not over-rulf the dummy. Therefore he didn't ask for n .spade continuation. By the same token, West could see the king of diamonds in his own hand and knew that his Partner could not over-ruff dummy. He did not want to hammer that (act home by leading a third spade, for then south would know- i.iat a diamond finesse could not succeed. South thought this all out carefully and came to the conclusion that West had the king of diamonds. On the chance that it was unsuardcd. Smith laid down the ace of diamonds and dropped West's Now only careful timing was necessary lo bring in eleven tricks. South entered dummy with a lew trump to the ten. finessed the queen of hearts, won another finesse with the tin :! hearts, and cashed the heart ace. He returned lo dummy with e trump to the jack in order to ruff 3 fourth round of hearts. Then IB ^could ruff a spade with dummy's last trump (n order to cash dummy's fifth heart.' Curiously enouah. If West had continued with a third spp.Ha a t the very besinninK of the hand. South could not have made his contract. The timing would be all wrong for the hearts; and if South tried to ruff two spades In dummy, East would win a trump trick. ; is talk that some Southern ™ j leaders will Join a revolt and try ! to throw the Sotith's electorial vote to their own candidate (in this Russell). Tlieir hope Is thai without the South's votes, neither ol the major candidates could win & majority of electorial votes. SHOULD THIS HAPPEN, the , election would be thrown Into the House of Representatives where each state wouuld have only a single vote, in naming ths President. And some Southerners believe In this event Russell would stand a good chance of being elected in fc compromise. Whether such a plan could ever be carried out remains to be seen. Russell says he Is In the race to stay regardless of what Truman decides to do. ... that he doesn't believe Truman will run. But It may be significant that Russell refused to say he would not lead a revolt in event Truman wins the nomination. And there is the explosive element In the situation.
