As a key nation in the Western Europe defense program, as well as a recipient of much .American aid, both military and non-military, France and her future are a matter of prime importance to this country. Whether the Pinay government stands or falls in October will he a strong indication of how France may be expected to fare in 'future months. And the next few weeks should tell the tale. Keep Your Rockets, Boys Every once in a while, in their zeal to sell somebody something, advertisers get too realistic for comfort. To wit: a "very effective" means nf advertising which combines the principles of a roi'k- el. a mortar, a time fuse and a parachute. The idea is that H rocket the size of a volleyball would be shot into the ' air, where a time fuse would rip the rocket apart, and p. paper replica of the product to he sold would drift down over the dazed prospective customers' heads. We doubt that people are scoing to rush to buy something that has just scared them half to death. .More likely they will take to the hills. Times being as jumpy as they are, the advertising boys would do well to confine their efforts to less military media. The public is long-suffering, but there is a point at which they may balk. And that point; could be getting hit by an advertising bombardment. Fat of Pinay Government May Be Decided in October October may well be the month •which tells whether the government of France's Premier Pinay keeps its head above water or sinks. It Is then that the French Parliament reassembles, and fireworks could b« started immediately which could mean that another French premier had bit the dust, though he's been in office only seven months. Pinny, the conservative small-industrialist, has probably surprised himself «g fnuch as others by adopting some views that might almost be called liberal. As a matter of fact he used the word by implication reoently to describe his government. In a major speech he declared, "It is the role of liberalism to work without cessation for the reduction of costs and through fair competition to develop the prosperity of the greatest number." And that from the man who took office only last March on a pledge that there would be no increases in taxes anrl that delinquent taxpayers would be gently treated if they ante up. By this, both his backers and his opponents took it thft he would favor industrialists and important agricultural interests and show less concern than previous premiers for the workers on farms and in factories, But the mercurial Pinay has pulled a switch. He's become a bitter foe of too much profit-making and the artificial maintenance of high prices. In fact, he's against about everything which will interfere with his program of reducing spiraling prices and so helping to cut inflation. Only a few weeks ago he set forth a program to raise workers' living stand- arris and their social security benefits. Pinay's problems have not all been those of an ivory tower political nature. They have included such down-to-earth matters as the shortage of meat and the overabundance of wine, and t h e consequent price level? of each. His government also got a blow when it found out that the United States was going to spend only S1S5 million, not ?fi2o million, on the purchase of French armaments. The larger amount would have been a sizeable shot in the arm to the stumbling French economy. The smaller amount is not going to be much help. There have been criticisms of Pinay that he is too much of a small-town boy for his country's own good. That is, he hasn't had an international-enough viewpoint to keep France out with the world's front runners in trade and finance. As it is, the prices of French products are so high as to almost eliminate them from many channels of world Views of Others A Dog Day Proceeding Funny thing, this political game, Down In Mississippi the people are being urged to vote the straight Democratic ticket In order to pre- aerve the seniority of Mississippi congressmen and thereby preserve their cong regional usefulness. Then the voters defeat John Rankln who has far more than three times as mu?h seniority AA the congressman who dclented him. And thai wet and ciry election that Mississippi held. No election more misleading was ever held, for it was neither wet nor dry. H did not reponl the present, dry laws or substitute therefore uny wet laws.

It merely expressed the personal opinion of the Mississippi voter*, and the next legislature is in no degree bound by the result of the popular opinion. It was nothing In the world but a statewide Gallup poll conducted at the taxpayers' expense. —Oklahoma City Okhhorrmn. A Simple Operation An army practice that hns become tradiiion b;' repetition is to place square pegs in round hole.s. This is, never assign a man to a Job in the Army which compares even roughly to what he did in civtlion life. Veterans will remember well — the plumber sent to the medical corps, the school teacher whn becomes a truck driver, et cetera. Now. .so we are told, all this Is to be changed, At least so far as college-educated dral- tces are concerned. Under the ne\v regulation, the period of basic training is cut frnm ifi to fight ^repks in some 25 specialized cat^Rorlp^. When a soldier is inducted, special attention is given to his qualifications for certain service. After he has "pone thrmiEh the mill" and sent on tor basic t rain in it, he is ratalaeued and Inter is assigned to the service far which ht is best fined. , • It's as simplo as that.

Lewis is able to win from the coal operators will have to get linnl approval from the reorganized Wage Stabilization Board. Says the new WSB chairman, Archibald Co:< f "Each morning my breafcCast is about another wage settlement calling for an increase whose approvabillty I s doubtful under present stabilization policies." If Lewis should negotiate a raise larger than WSB can authorize, here will be R nasty situation. ,ewis hates government controls i-orse than any capitalist. All he :ould do to break the WSB con- rols—which the law now crmtin- ies till May l, !»,«—is to strike gainst the government. rcler Ed«m they're entitled to, except for increases in the cost of living since Jan. 15, 1951, under WSB regulation 8. The consumers' price index was 181.5 on Jan. 15, 1951. On July 15, 1952, it was 190.8. The increase of 9.3 points is a fraction ever 5 per cent. Lewis Asks Too Much The miner's average wage rate today is $2.04 an hour. A 5 per cent Increase on that would be only 10.2 cents an hour. No one at WSB is willing to say that this is all the raise the miners are entitled to, because the board does not pre-judge cases which aren't even yet before it. But under the regulations, this would be the limit. Mr. Lewi.s however, is reported to be asking for a tl.60- to $1.80-a- dfiy increase. This would be 20 to 22.5 cents an hour for an eight- hour day. It would be an increase I of 12 to nearly 14 per cent over p: resent rates. That might bring another Taft-1 If approved, it would make the Hartley injunction down on his I m^ers 1 wage rate from 21 to 23 hoar!. To break that law, Lewis i P er cen t higher than Jan. 15, 1950, von Id unquestionably be willing to I Thia is obviously (ar more than ake Another long strike, if he | present regulations allow. Lewis is also believedxto be asking the operators for EI reduced working day of seven hours instead of the present eight. This could get away with it. Such ^inke at this time might have con- i slderable effect on the elections. Signed Before "FrneiR" This is the arithmetic of the present coal WJIETC situation: Lewis won a 20-cpnt-an-hour increase for his miners—5,60 a day —in January, 1951, This was a 10.85 per cent increase on the previous $14.15 daily rate, average. ;he work week— even at no change crease. WSB has not allowed wage considered as a general wage in- .n the hourly rate — is in most cases .ncreases of this kind in the past because such double talk is too obvious a subterfuge Eo avoid the regulations. The same principle would probably be applied in John L. Lewis 1 other proposals to stagger the work or to make punitive overtime wage rates apply on all work of over three days a week. The miners' chief has frequently argued that even today's rate is fictitious because few miners work a. full week. The average miner's take-home pay is far iess than five times $16.35 per day, or S81.75. Lewis therefore porposes to spread the work by shorter hours. But again there is no indication how WSB would look on these proposals. Another Problem Arises An Increase in tonnage royalty payments by (he coal operators to the United Mine Workers' pension and welfare fund presents a problem of still another kind. The present payment by the operator? is 30 cents for each ton! of coal mined. Mr. Lewis is anxious to increase this to 40 cents a ton. Payments from the fund Eince Kirk Douglas 1 seven-year-old Eon Michael commented to a friend: "I'm not going to be an actor when I grow up. I hear there's more money in real estate." Gossips Blush GEORGE SANDERS talking about wifey Zsa Zsa Gabor: "She'll probably win an Oscar and the Harvard Lampoon's Worst Performance award in the same year." Gossips who predicted Zsa Zs would never play that role In "Moulin Rouge" for John Huston are blushing—she winds up the film in three weeks with even more day.

TerhnirnHy. therefore, thft min- cation that the Waee Stabilization Board would approve it. 580 million—a million checks to \ miners and members of their families. This has been a heavier drain than was anticipated and it has come close to eating into what is considered a safe reserve a! 5100 million. An increase in royalty payments would not be a direct wage Increase to the miners, but it is a fringe benefit. That would bring It under WSB for approval or disapproval. But there is no telling what the board might do about it. When the hand was actually played, however. South didn't sus- | pect that anything unusual was be- ! ing done to him. He saw East win the first trick with the ace of diamonds and naturally assumed that West held the aueen of diamonds. Hence South didn't see any danger in dtscardinst on he second round of diamonds. West ruffed, of course, and the slam was set immediately. Incidentally, while we're giving Eddie Lowenthal credit for his brilliant play, let's mvard a scalHon or two to South for his bidding. The decision to bid six spades was very optimistic. There would have neen no piny for the slam if North had shmvn up with King-x-x in hearts msteart of the actual holding in that suit. South actually decided to bid the slam as soon as his partner raised to four spades- Having marie that decision, he should have bid six spades without- bothering to show his hearts. By hiddine hearts he warned the opponents to expect a tremendous two-suiter, and perhaps that- had its influence in persuading East that the ace of clubs would not live. 15 Years Ago In Blytheville — Leon Smith, Jr.. has pledged Sigma Alpha Epstlon at the University of Arkansas.
