Warrants Logical Result Of Overdue City Fees Some 300 persons in Blylheville are facing warrants for arrest because they have failed to pay various city fees such as auto tag, privilege license and garbage assessments. The warrants were requested last week by Special Tax Collector Raymond Bomar and City Clerk W. I. Malin said they will b« issued. This may seem harsh, but actually the city is being lenient. Mr. Maim has pointed out that warrants are to be served only those persons nine months or more in arrears. In good times or bad, nine months is sufficient time in which to at least make some effort to meet these obligations. It may seem picayunish to be concerned with the payment of relatively small amounts in this day and age when the squandering and outright pilfering of vast sums by personss high in public life is apparently condoned both tacitly and officially. However, if any sort of order is to be brought out of the current chaos, there must be a revival of a basic sense of honesty and civic responsibility in the citizenry itseslf. And the best, perhaps only, place for this to begin is on the local level. Those who do pay these fees have a stake in seeing that the non-payers come through. We who buy city auto tags, pay privilege licenses and keep up our garbage fee payments get just a little chagrined al the thought that there are 300 persons in Blytheville who are free-loading off the rest of us. The costs of government, regardless of its level, must be born by all—even if arrest nmst be resorted to in order to convince the hold-outs that no one owes them a living. ly, at well »* the leaders of the many nations he it dealing with, having also served as Ike's chief of staff in World War II. But Gruenther has never had a field command (neither did Ike), and apparently that fact may weigh against him in considerations al the Pentagon. Riiigway, on the other hand, was a fighting paratroop commander in Europe in World War II. headed the 8th Army in Korea, and now commands the UN forces in the Far [Cast. However, one circumstance apart from the relative merits of the two men may be entering strongly into deliberations on the final choice. According to official reports from Tokyo there is growing Japanese resentment of certain of our occupation policies. Their objection to the privileges and power of our occupying troops is becoming stronger, and the Japanese are making little effort to conceal it. For that reason, the United States government may very possibly wish to remove Hidgway from Japan ns soon as is practicable alter the peace treaty goos into effect. For he must represent to . the Japanese the symbol of occupying power. Too, there is a growing feeling that a Korean truce may be arrived at before Eisenhower returns to Ibis country. That would he another good reason for releasing Ridgway to take over the SHAPE job. But relations among the North Atlantic military organization members already are delicately balanced. There are rivalries and resentments among the European countries themselves, as well as against this country. Ridgwny could go to ICurope fresh from a job as commander of an occupation force. Super-sensitive already to American power in Europe, might some countries there resent the presence of an American military leader with Riclg- way's recent background? Some observers believe so. The SHAPE job is the most important ever held by an American in Europe during peacetime. The great power vested in the man who holds it makes it imperative that he be the right man, by every consideration. Views of Others 'Let Us Take Time' Even though New York newspapers rechrist- ened their city Nieuw Amsterdam in her honor, Queen Juliana of the Netherlands probably still found the metropolis on -ihe Hudson a very hustlinR place. Anywny. she, chose in that setting to 5j>eok some wcasxired and w'drLh-while words About the value nt taking time to think things through and sometimes letting mutters work themselves out. This was not merely traditional Dutch placidness. for the Queen added that, there Is virtue In quick action (no lew a Dutch trait) when one is sure ol what Is needed. But her remarks apparently had reference in R Inly to Intem.Hional policy, where Americans are apt to be a bit hnsty In their desires to see Europe united Into some kind of a federation. Europe, she pointed out, is "the only part of the globe where nations are at all seriously negotiating about giving up a part of their sovereignty." "Let us take UniB and cultivate patience and yet be always on the alert," she advised. And again, "Make time your nlly; it is a safe one," None should interpret this RS a counsel of Inaction; it is a warning ngainst, vaslinc^i, a^iuiLst forcing of situations; it is for giving unity lime to grow. Yet energy and foresight are nerrssnry to advancement. Time is with those who work for what they believe sn and can wait for Its fruition. - Christian Science Monitor SO THEY SAY Words and Music by Harry Truman «v» I Erskine Johnson IN HOLLYWOOD Peter Ed ion's Washington Column — Government Finds It Can Save By Increasing Service Charges WASHINGTON 'NEAl— At long last, your slow - moving, cumbersome federal government is getting nroviiic] to raising the rates on -some of the fancy services it has been giving nway Tree or selling for less This project has been -kicking R round for two years.

It seems likely at this time that the Job again will jro to an American. As things now stand between the French and the British, each would be reluctant to serve under leadership of the other. And these two countries, along with the United States, are the biggest in the European military set-up. The two Americans most frequently mentioned for the job at this time are Gen.
