Bell's Refusal to Debate ,'Rate Cas^ Is Surprising Refusal on the part of Southwestern Bell Telephone to air the issues of its "rate increase, via a 1 rtebnte with rlisscnt- ing parties came to us as a surprise. Bell officials gave as their reason the fact that they do nol wish "to try the case through the newspapers or over the air." This, from Bell, rloos not make a lol of sense. In 1950, this same campany took advantage of advertising media to tell the people of Arkansas just why tlie company was clue a rate increase at tliat time. However, it is our understanding that at that time, the company was per- mittee) to chnrge this advertisinjf to actual-operating expense. Then, the company .seemingly had no qualms about "trying the case through . the columns of the newspaper." Now however, Public Service Commission has ruled that such advertising will not be allowed as an operating expense. SB the picture changes . If Southwestern Bell is operating under a financial hardship, it should certainly have whatever rate increase it would take to make its Arkansas operation 'show a legal anl reasonable profit. If such is the case, sve fail to see how open debate of the r,ate question can hurt, the company's cause. Big Three Won't Be Misled By Red Aim to Unify Reich The Western Big Tlivee — Lhe United States, France and Britain — luive once again made it clear lo Russia that they cio not iiitniirl to be misled into selling West Germany down (lie river. By firmly rejecting Moscow's proposal that the German unification problem be considered at a four-powrr parley in October, the western capitals have now left the ne.xt move plainly tip to the Russians. For more than a year now, the roadblock to the German unification movement lias been the question of free elections. The \\Vst lias insisted that no unification talks can lie held until plans have been worked out to permit the East and West Germans freoly to elect a unified government. Agreeing to unification without prior assurances that such elections would not be interfered with by any outside power, argue the Big Three, would quickly result in Red dominance of East German polling and make the ne\v #oveni- ment overwhelmingly Communist. Moscow has agreed to the free elections point in principle anc! says it is now willing to bow to liig Three de- mands that a commission be created to work out the details. But it has insisted that such a commission should be composed entirely of Germans, or of members of the Big Four, and that it should not be set up until after the uni- fidition agreement. The West has turned down this proposal flatly, claiming that any commission made up of Germans or of representatives of the Kit; Four could not be impiU'iial. They suggest, instead, that an unltiHsed investiKatkm be conducted by dis-interesteil L'X members. The western capitals have little faith in Soviet assurances that free elections «m be held in the Ked-dominated Kast German seelur without impartial supervision and have bluntly s«id so. It has been kurnuii "by hard experience in recent years," said their most recent note to .Moscow, "that terms such as 'free elections' have one meaning in common parlance and another in t'h e official Soviet vocabulary." Bin Three observers interpret the Russian interest in an immediate unification conference us an attempt to divert West German attention from the cementing of its ne iv tics with the Kuro- l)««n defense community. This fall, the Bonn must ratify the six-power Western European scheme for forming a single defense force and must also act on the new aj- raiiBonlenls that have been drawn tip with the West to restore it to near sov- ereignly and freedom. JJy holding up the (wit of an independent and neutral Germany, thus wooing Germans who yearn for national unity, as well as the Western Europeans who fear Germany and hope that a settlement could relieve world tension, the Soviet apparently hopes to disrupt these arrangements. Certainly it is clear that Moscow's aims for a unified Reich are not motivated solely by the high ideals to which • it gives lip service. Otherwise, there could be little justification for its stand on the free-election issue. And the West is working in the hest interest of the German people, as well as for its own benefit by refusing to be fooled.

Mrs. Lanza Pcfer ft/son's Washington Column Storm Signal—Marines Again Refuse McCarthy a Colonelcy W A QUTMri'rrs'fcf /T.TI-, . » _ * . WASHINGTON -fNEA) -Sen. Joseph R. 'McCarthy of Wisconsin was recently turned down for promotion from major to lieutenant colonel in (he Marine Corps reserve, and there's a major typhoon brewing as a result. A Marine Corps selection board headed by Bri ? .Gen. John c. McQueen was convened In August to consider these promotions. The Board approved 3S1 IfacFVC- iJiaJ- to General Tclcr Eiison Dnn Topping. Carlhys n ame Senator Mc*ns omitted. This is the second time the Wisconsin senator's name has been passed. One of his principal troubles is that his "fitness report " which is „ military record and efficiency rating, bears lhe telltale letters "P.T." This is lhe designation which all u. s. armed services use to indicate "poiilical interference" in connection with pnv matter. ' " Senator McCarthy — K M nr jnp - np captain at the time— was allowed is Marine Corps Director of Public Information, is now announced for the first time as follows: Colonels AngeJo J. Cincotte, Robert E Mac- Farlande, Katharine A. Towle Richard G. Wcede, Winslow H! Randolph, Jr., George A. Brace, William J. Burrows, Given C. Ross Albert Creal, James A. Embry[ Jr.. and Charles J. Quilter. Other than releasing these names, the .Marine Corps Is saying only, "The deliberations of selection boards in the. Marine Corps HIU considered confidential. H feels that tlie confidential nature of its selection system should be maintained."

What this amounts to for one of the bigger states is that the senators may have 15 to 20 office employes and an annual payroll of up to S65.00S. John t,.
