"With proper cooperation by other branches of the city government, a planning commission can save cities many . times its cost, while making Hometown, U, S. A. a better place." City Planning Study Holds Pointers for Us A i-ecent study on city planning approved bj T the board of directors of the Chamber of Commerce of the United States contains some pointers of interest to us in Blytheville. The following release sent out by the U.S. C. of C. contains some, points we would do well to think on. Blytheville, during and after World War II, shot up in growth like a child at that "awkward age." With reactivation of the air base, added growth is almost unavoidable Some of the problems' of growth are the 'oasis of the study cited below. It is interesting to note that this study puts stress on zoning ordinances —a type of necessary regulation which no city Council in this city's history has yet had the courage to place in force. The C. of C. report follows: "Hometown, U. S. A. is changing. "Everywhere, people are saying," 'We're getting to be a big town now. • We've got problems. Parking problems. Traffic problems. iNoise. Downtown slums. What can we do?' "There's a one-word answer: "plan." "It's a dull word, but it can be dynamite. "Without planning, says a new study approved by the board of directors of the Chamber of Commerce of the United States, all these headaches will get worse. Eventually, they will become incurable or very expensive to cure. The study is entitled, 'City Planning and Urban Development.' "Cities like New York, Chicago,'Philadelphia and Boston found this put. Rut all wish they had found it out earlier. "Today, the nation's smaller cities have a chance to prevent bigrcity headaches by farsightert planning, the Cham-; ber says. And the best way to get into action is with a carefully-selected city planning commission. "Modern city planning, explains a special chamber committee which made the study, tries to guide the growth of small cities into orderly communities; • to prevent drab, unbroken expansion over the countryside, the curse of many big cities where planning came too late. "It does this through better land- annexation laws, zoning ordinances, subdivision regulations, development of neighborhood-units and better cooperation between separate communities. • "A good city planning commission, the committee states, should be non-political. It should represent the whole community and it should have good tech- Wrong Choice of Guns, Butter May Be Tragic Should America make more guns? Or should it make more butter? According to Defense Mobilizer Henry H. Fowler, the nation has now boosted its industrial capacity to a point where it can step up its military production without pinching the civilian economy, But only, he adds, if Americans are willing to pay the bill. Fowler told the President in his'first quarterly report that the expanded industrial capacity can be used in at least six ways. We can use it (1) to fill "gaps" in the industrial base by producing more petroleum, power and transportation facilities; (2) to send more military aid to our Allies; (3) to improve our lagging civil defense program. (4) to expand research; (5) to step up military production and (6) for civilian uses such as more schools, highways and flood-control systems. If we decide to concentrate on boosting our military output, it was predicted that a position of minimum national security could he reached by 1954. That is x the year that the Joint Chiefs of Staff have warned will.present the greatest danger of war by Russia. Such a move would mean an end to the'"stretch-out" military program, This has set back the date for reaching minimum security from 1954 to 1955. There is, unfortunately, no way of knowing whether Fowler's size-up of the economy is correct or not. There will probably be experts who will dispute it. On the possibility of expanding the military program without pinching the civilian economy, he lias said substantially the same thing before. And the Defense Department and the Budget Bureau have apparently found nothing in his reasoning to make them abandon the "stretch-out'' program. But if Fowler is correct, and America is able to choose between greater defense production and more and better civilian goods, most prudent choics would seem to be a defense step-up. The war in Korea shows no sign of ending. Red ChinsHS^reported stronger than before. Conimitnist leaders at a party congress in Moscow hint that the cold war is going to get colder. General Ridgway warns that NATO power is inadequate. AM that indicates that the threat to our national security cannot be ignored or minimized. And to put the extra imfustrial resources to civilian uses, rather than muscle-building ones, might be a tragic mistake. Most wise Americans will no doujjt believe that, if paying a little extra will help us to reach our defense goals a year sooner — without straining the home economy to the breaking point — the tab should be well worth picking up.

This was earlier dispatch by this corres- the board which turned down pondcnt on how Wisconsin Sen- Joe McCarthy was turned down for promotion from major to lieutenant colonel in the Marine Corps Reserve only told the half of it. But It was publication of this earlier story which uncovered the full story, The other half of the story is ,hat Major Joe was actually np- pvovert for. promotion last April. The report of the Marine Corps Selection Board which re- romincnded them promotion was McCarthy for promotion—on 'the grounds of "P.I."—or political interference—as revealed exclusively !n 'the earlier story by 'this writer. So much for the official version of what happened. Behind this official version there Is another story which Navy nnd Marine Corps headquarters aren't 'talking about. It. is n^ story, however, which has ; been fully confirmed after careful investigation. The recommendations of the April selection board were sent to Navy headquarters for approval before going to the White House for transmit'al to Congress and final confirmation. They en me to the attention of Under Secretary Feler Edson thrown* out on a • of the Navy Prnncis P. Whitehall*. echnicallty after a six-week hassle imong the Navy and Marine Corps .op brass. Involved in, the dispute were Under Secretary- of the Navy Francis P. .Whitehnlr, Gen. L. C. Shepherd, Jr., Commnndnnt of the Marine Corps, nnd Rear Admiral George L.. Russell, Judge Advocate General of the Nnvy. It was Admiral Russell's official opinion Mint the precept creating the April selection board mafic it operate uuder conflicting authority of two regulations, One was the Naval Reserve Act of 1938. The other was the Personnel Act of 1947. The Navy's Judge Advocate General ruled that these two regulations did not go together very well. All trie recommendations of the selection board for the promotion of several hundred Marine Reserve majors to lieutenant colonel were therefore thrown out. A new selrcllon board was r-ol up in AMKUM. Vo operate unner In 1913, after a sufficient number of states had ratified the 16ih amendment., a seemingly innocuous law WAS pawed by -Congress permitting a levy oti the income of individuals and corporations. Count von Rcrnstorff. then German Ambassador to the United States, said: "You have adopted an income tax, That is the beginning. You wU\ have more and more burdensome taxes. What amft7es me \& that your people seem In- lent upon following our example, instead of developing the system provided by your Constitution. Watt a few years and see the result!" Von Berntorft may have been a poor diplomat bvvt he was a good prophet. Beginning In '1914. with a very modest share of the cit teens earning, this tax is now extracting; from Individuals alone more than 27 billion dollars per year or 450 dollars for even' working person in in the country. Taxation In the UnUert Slat?-?; has passed the point of oppression. About all that can be said Is that the tax forms of our ln(*rnal Revenue Department do not yet bear the flourish u! a royal decree, —Johnson City (Tenn.l PreM-Chronicle. Secretary of the Navy Don Klmbal! iv a s out of the country at the time so Mr. Whitehair war acting sec- rotary. Today, Secretary Whitehair sr.ys hat the proceedings of a selection board are n good bit like those of a grand jury. Nobody tampers with \\s findings. The recommendations go to Ihe commandant of the Marine Corps. He certifies them to the .Judge Advocate General of .the Navy. The J.A.G. then transmits the report to the Secretary of the Navy with comment Co the effect of, "1 have examined the proceedings of- this selection board pnd find they are legally sufficient." . Only somcUmes, says Mr. While- hnir, thn Judge Advocate General, in reviewing tbe proceedings, finds (hat the precepts under which the selection board operates are not legally sufficient. In that case, the recommendation.- of the board have to be rcjcrtrd. The inside story is Demotion list was sent back to jeneral Shepherd for reconsideration; The Marine Corps commandant stuck by his board. If this was what they recommended, it. was all right- with him. The mern""TS of this April board were Brig.Gv.i. R. McC. Pate, director of Marine Corps Reserves, Brig^-Gen- L. B. Cresswell, Col. S. S- Jack and Reserve Colonels A. G. Skelton, E. P* Venn, J. L. Winston, F. C. DeSantis, W. E, Giant?, and H. F. Brown. Recorder was First Lieut, C. F. King. Balked here, an effort was then made to find some grounds on which the selection board's" report could be set aside. These .grounds were finally found m the fact that eight of the reserve majors recommended for promotion ' to lieutenant 'colonel had been called to active duty. The board had been set up to consider only the promotion of Inactive reserve majors to reserve ieutenant colonels. So on this bass th e whole r e p o rt was th ro wn out. Actually, while many" Marine officers ' feel tlnat McCarthy's position ns a senator should have nothing to do with whether he is g^ven a reserve promotion, they also deceptive.

In the first room West hopped on the king of spades with his ace, barely suppressing a little chortle of glee. He then cashed his three heart tricks and looked around for new worlds to conquer. Unfortun ately for Viim, there were no nev. worlds. West got out safely enough b\ shifting ,to a club, .which South won in his own hand. South 'nov cashed the queen of spades and ran tbe rest of the clubs. Finally since there was no other way to make his contract, South felt- ofo liged to try the diamond finesse When this finesse ' succeeded South made his contract. In the other room South like wise won the first heart, enteret dummy with a club, and led a spade towards the kins. West non chalantly played the six of spades allowing South's king to hold th trick. Now South could count elgh tricks: one spade, one heart, on diamond, and five clubs.

A p p a re ntly the a c of spades was in the East hand so the ninth trick could be deve oped by leading another spad from dummy.
