ThiB is the regulation that act the down payment required I'or VA or FHA home loans. Many have liliuned ihis regulation for standing between tliein mid a home of their own. However, the government has never had the first or the last say in this matter. By sucii regulations, the government has simply set up n few standards h.v which it felt it could protect itself, '('his is because the government is insuring (and not making, as many are still want to believe) these loans. The government's action this week simply returned the business of house buying and selling (or building) to the buyers and (he seller — and the lender, an important third person not to he overlooked. So the government is, for I lie time being at least, out of the picture. \Ve might also add, so what? This may prove ot" benefit to the buyers or builders of expensive real estale, but to the average would-be home owner the situs- lion is little changed. Most of us have, or would, buy or build with the minimum down payment. H tloea not mean down payments will liii roc k bottom or that a buyers' market is in sight. It simply means that whatever arrangement is satisfactory between the buyer and seller is okay wiih I.IK-IP Sam, who is now keeping hands off (he transaction. \Vhuro a gov_ eninienl-insiivpd loan is involved, there «re still minimum down payments ip be met although llu-sc have been lowered. But the lender certainly isn'l going lo go out on any limb. Ordinary business sense dMales that he will lend only so much money on any given pj,.,^ ,,f properly. It will be Ihe louder who determine* the down payment, just as it always has been. For instance, the new minimum down payment for :i VA loan on a §16,000 house is §800. That sounds mighty good. Kill we know of no lenders who are likely to lend 815,200 on any 518.000 house. Regulation X or no Regulation X. t; 0(K | se: «> dictates that a person unable to pay more than $300 down is in no po- • silion lo afford a 9!f>,000 house, especially considering what the monthly payments would be on such a balance. The temporary retirement of Regu- lation X (it can b« reinstated if the number of new bousing units begun drops below 1,200,000 a year) simply puts one facet of American back where it belongs — in the hands of the private citizen anil subject to the natural economic law of supply and demand. West Europe Has 2 Plans For Basing Defense Forces llucli lias been said iilwuC the administrative details of the West European defense force, but there has been litlle so far on bow that force would lj« used if the worst should happen. Cerliiinly there would be changes from Hie kind of fiifliling- seen in Europe tluriiijc World War II. And those changes fire ,-is marked as those which distinguished (he fixed-line trench system of World War I from the wide-open armoj-- ed warfare of World War II. exact in formation on. what obviously must be a hush-hush mutter as regards detail, it seems apparent that the countries of western Europe are now divided between two widely different plans. One woidd hold generally to the fixed lines of defense based on 1 h e big rivers which form natural barriers across Europe. The other would have Allied armies, in the event they arc forced into initial retreat, fall back into previously prepared strong points of resistance. Such strong points might be in the Alps on the South, and to the North, coaslal areas wjjicli would afford tho protection of water harriers. There is something to be said for bofh slj-afeffic plans. Backers of the J'ixed-line plan believe that if Russia should attack westward across Germany, a strong- line of defense along, say, the Hhine would force Russia to concentrate her forces for a break-through. This would make (he Russians highly vulnerable to attack by tactical atomic weapons. 0;i the other hand, a plan for hoki- ing out in strong points would seem to offer the Western forces a better opportunity for heavy counter-attacks. Such a plan might also tend to reduce the possibility of the defending "forces living cut up and reduced piecemeal by any successful enemy offensive. Of course, an important consideration in a clioire of strategy during any way iu wlrictTjTie atomic weapons would be used tactically, is how those weapons could !>e used without serious affect on the civilian population. Certainly this point is being given consideration in strategy planning. The enormous potential of atom weapons used tactically makes it imperative that every possible safeguard be taken for the'protection of civilians.

Recently n n "expert" caiin; In with a plan t end the Korean j war. It looked as though it had everything. I n brief the plan was this: Let's announce that we are pulling our troops out of Koren. If the United States pulled out, all the other United Nations would also pull out, convinced that it was a hopeless war that nobody could win. Announcement of Ihe decision to pull out, however, would be made ill such form that it would not be a complete surrender.

The plan sounded so good that some of the people who heard it wanted lo try to sell it (o Ike right away, nnd then announce it. But the man who had thought it up just smiled nnd said they shouldn't do thai, because there \vas one big catch in the plan that made it unworkable. Maybe the reader \vould like to Maybe the reader \vould like to stop here and try to figure out tor himself what that nntt;h is. before rending Ihe next paragraph.

Darklcy country, Sen. Tom ; R. Underwood of Kentucky, who is I also editor of the Lexington Herald, sums it up Ihis way: ''The expressions that Governor Stevenson should not make wise- cmckis at the expense of a five-star genera! may boomerang. While his comparisons are graphic, nothing Stevenson has .said yet is funny enough to disqualify him for the presidency. Also, there are many I whn fear the exaltation of a gen- I eral or a president beyond criticism." Erskine Johnson IN ' HOLLYWOOD Shed no (ears of Johnnie Ray in the financial department.

If Bettc Davis' in-the-flesh musical revue, "Two's Company," is a hit. her absence from Hollywood will be longer than the town suspects.

SUC Reporters accompanying General Eisenhower—in separate planes —• on h i s air-campaign flights aroimd Hie country came into Washington pretty well discouraged and beat up. But that's only natural and par for the course, for it's an exhausting business. Most of {he correspondents' papers nre supporting General Eisen- howcr editorially. But Fletcher Kneljc-l of the Cowles publications took a poll of fellow corre.spon- (Irn!.-- which came out like this: For Stevenson. 21. For Eisenhower, 7. Undecided, C. ate or early. If south couM „,„ only four heart tricks, however, he would need three spades for' his contract. South wanted to take the spade finesse first, since if that lost. West could not continue the :lubs. ~As it turned out, West won the ipade wilh the queen and now had to find some vmy of giving his partner the lead in order to have a club returned through South's ten. A spade return was obviously hopeless. A heart return would simply develop declarer's suit for him. 'west could not afford to lay down the ace ot diamonds since that would remove his enlry lo the long clubs. West therefore had to lead ihe deuce of diamonds in (he hope that his partner had the king of diamonds nnd would play it. South had followed West's rca- ;oning- and saw that West had come to .the correct conclusion, tits only chance now was that East would make a mistake. Declarer therefore played the eight of diamonds from the dummy. East timidly played the nine of diamonds hoping that (his would somehow save his precious king. South gleefully won with the ten of diamonds and took the heart finesse. East could take the queen of hearts, but now no defense could defeat the contract. East's correct play, of course, Is to put up the king of diamonds like a little man, and lo return the five of clubs. This knocks out dummy's ace of clubs. Whenever declarer tries to develop the queen of benrls in time to lead the diamond lo his partner's ace The long clubs then defeat the con tract. School Lesson — lly W : E. (lilrny. 1).
