But they have written "Senate leaders they need more help. They say one of their number is • in tlie hospital and (he other three are on the verge of nervous breakdowns. You need only spend a day in the Senate galleries during a full-dress debate to realize that the occupational hazards of these reporters are indeed severe. Would you like to be subjected to Senate oratory from January to November? These men not only have to listen; they must write it down. Let's have adequate safeguards for the health and well-being of these brave workers immediately. \, Views of Others Truman and Taxes Children, Victims of War, Merit'Assist From U. S. Experience has taught us that when Congress talks 'of economy it usually means having in foreign programs. Few lawmakers have the spunk to trim funils for domestic programs, especially where cuts would be sharply felt in their home bailiwicks. This year the effort to slash foreign funds prohably will be the most strenuous since World War II. For one thing, it's an election year and a nice show of economy will go well with the voters •—provided it doesn't affect them. Secondly, the weakening of the bipartisan foreign policy has opened the way to more outspoken criticisms of foreign aid, chiefly among isolationist Republicans. It's too early to guess how deep a cut Congress may make in these programs. But it isn't too soon to plead that one project be spared the axe. The United Nations Children's Emergency Fund deserves whatever money it needs from the United Slates to keep going full tilt. Surely no one needs to make out a case for helping children. It ought to be enough for us to ( know what children get the benefit of our aid. The Children's Fund was set up by the UN in 1046, first to assist children in nations ravaged by the war and then to boost child health generally. It has provided food, clothing and medical for the neglected youngsters of 1? F;<- ropean countries, China, India, the Philippines, Japan, Korea and the Palestine area. In Europe alone the program has embraced 30,000,000 children. The organization has supplied J 80,000,000 pounds of dried milk in two years to kids all over the globe. But obviously much work remains to be done. More materials are needed for clothing and hospital linens. More child specialists must he trained to handle the unfortunates. Food shipments ought to be heavier than they are. Said President Truman in commenting on the work of the Children's Fund: "The establishment of lasting peace depends in large measure upon whether these children, who will shape the future, have healthy bodies and a normal and happy outlook on life." Senators and congressmen, consider these children well before you slice a single dollar from the program to help them. They don't vote in American elections; indeed, they have no politics at all. But the kind of men you assist • in making them may determine whether your own children will live in peace. Four Brave Men The Workmen's Compensation Law ; may have to bo modified to include a new group—-the men who make their living taking dowa in ahoithand «very- l. The President's tax message Is for the most part a welcome recognition that the business of tlie country Is entitled to some friendly encouragement from Washington. Tins time Mr. Truman does not scold. Neither does he threaten. His harshest remarks he saves for the oil and mining industries which have been enjoying the bcnetit of big tax loopholes. In the interest ol fairness, the President asks Congress to close these-and • other tax gaps. Although his budget message forecast a deficit of some five billions, It is noteworthy that Mr. Truman does not ask for any increase In taxcs- on personal Incomes. The call for the elimination of wartime excise taxes, which are In effect, federal sales taxes, Is all to the good. These taxes were Imposed in wartime partly to raise revenue and partly to discourage rail travel, telegraph and long-distance telephone use. Rail travel needs no discouragement these days. Congress should act promptly on these recommendations and give the passenger and freight shipper the benefit of lower costs and the railroads tho benefit of at least some measure ol Increase In business.. The effect of these excises on telephone costs Is presented In today's Mirror of Public Opinion, in a factual report from the Bell system's magazine. As for the excises on [oilel preparations, luggage and handbags, a somewhat better case can be made for them on the score that they are luxury Items. Yet there are many times when a man's new suitcase or a woman's new handbag is not In any sense a luxury but an unquestioned necessity. In any case, If these Items are to be taxed It should be on a frank federal sales tax basis, (which we oppose as a matter of principle), rather than by a wartime excise which has outlived any fair bnsls it may have hart. Tlie'President'used his great forum to sound purpose when he put the spotlight on the exemption which has been accorded charitable and educational trust funds. This exemption has all too often been used as a tax dodge. Mr. Truman is entirely right when he says that this situation is givingrconcern lo responsible- leaders or legitimate eruliaUona] and charitable activities. Congress can and should give immediate attention to the problem of protecting education and philanthropy from schemers who discredit worthy causes with their cloaks to escape just taxes. Coupled with tho proposal for cutting out wartime excises Is a recommendation that n billion of the deficit be made up by a revision of gift and estate taxes nnd by an Increase in corporation [axes. These suggestions are not presented In detail and so It is impossible to evaluate them now. The country will expect early amplification from Administration leaders in Congress. One sentence which might well have been expanded In this: "We must continue to practice rigid economy." The Truman Administration should Hive an ear to its friends who arc seeking lair ways to reduce the cost of Die defense and other budgets. If it docs not listen to Its friends a combination of Its enemies In both parties may enforce slashes which will do a lot of damage Here is a Iheme for a special message to Congress. The President's tax message lays tlie basis for it. —JST.
