Repeal of Margarine Taxes Won't Melt Butter interests After 64 years, the federal taxes on colored and white olcomargiinne are about to be repealed. .Coming on top of last year's repeal action in the House, the recent Senate vote of 56 to 16 for removal of the levies adds up to a smashing defeat for dairy state lawmakers. They claimed repeal would drive butter off the market and wreck the dairy industry. It should be noted, however, that the butter advocates have not lost the war —merely a major battle..For, 16 states completely outlaw oleo, three olhei's tax both the white and yellow varities and three more tax just white margarine. So long as those stale laws stay on the books, butter will continue to enjoy a competitive edge in 22 stales. At the federal level all efforts to block repeal failed in the.Senate. About the only triumphs salvaged by dairy stale legislators were amendments requiring that oleo be sold in triangular shape and be identified properly in restaurants. The action is a victory for lawmakers from the big cities in the industrial North, phis a sizable group from the South. That alignment cut sharply across party lines, with 34 Democrats and 22 Republicans voting for repeal. The northern lawmakers argued that repeal would bring oleo within pocketbook reach of many housewives who now can afford neither butter nor oleo. They contended that thousands of city families badly "need one or the other product in their daily diet. The nutritional value of oleo is rated close to that of butler. Southerners who supported this block of senators were interested in promoting cottonseed oil, a prime ingredient of oleo. But the size of the repeal vote suggests the northern group could have won even without southern backing. Whether the market for butter will in fact be harmed by oleo tax repeal is a question to be tested by time. The disinterested bystander must find it hard to understand, however, why in a free American economy butter should . not lake its chances competitively with any rival products. If it has the superior finalities claimed for it, butter should not suffer unduly in any contest with oleo. Clyde Hoey, North Carolina Democrat, pointed out that the "criticisms of General Vaughan do not reflect on his character or integrity but relate instead to customs and practices engaged in by him." \Ve find this kind of hair-splittinjf pretty foolish. It's like saying a man has a fine mind hut doesn't know how to think. In this case, we are told that Harry Vaughan has character, but he docs things which reflect a lack of character. Looks as if the committee has tried to steer through treacherous straits, On the one hand, it wanted to avoid any charge of "white-washing" the general. On the other, it sought to avoid offending the President by reflecting too gravely on his choice of a military aide. The result is such that it might have been better for the committee to issue no report at all. Then the public would have been free to make up its mind entirely from the published evidence. That is what it should do anyway. Views of Others Who's the Pioneer? Here's That Man Again The Senate committee which investigated "Five-Percenters" in Washington has let President Truman's aide, Maj.-Gcn. Harry Vaughan, off with a rather light lap on the knuckles. The group criticized him for turning Ihe White House into an operating base for John JNlaragon, whom it described as an "outright fixer." It also went after Vaughan for accepting seven home freezers from a company the committee feels was plainly trying to curry favor. There were other complaints, too. Rut the committee chairman, Sen.

And \/ASHINGTON — <NEA>— Quite: a fuss may be in the making over President Truman's budget message request for 55,000,000 to start a new industrial safety program. National Safety Council, the big, privately-financed organisation for promoting safety in homes and on highways as well as in factories, forsees encroachment on Its activities and feels that business can •promote safety better and cheaper than the government. U. S, Chamber of Commerce, while endorsing present safety programs in which the federal government co-operates \vith the .stale. 1 ;, feels that any enlargement of federal functions is unnecessary. Beyond this, the issue is scunc- enforcement of s!>ecific safety laws- S:im Dues From this summary, A I.ot it can secri that the federal government is already in the safety business quite extensively. There are two bills now before Congress to extend those programs to factory inspection. In one, introduced by Rep. Tom Burke of Ohio, a new Bureau of Accident Prevention would be set up in the Department of Labor tc do the whole 'safety '-job. This is the'AFL-CIO bill. It would create an Accident Prevention Board for each industry. It would be made tip of labor and management representatives, with a public chairman.
