What we really need Is fewer Illuminated drivers. sort of searching self-examination suggested by Harrison in his recent Detroit speech. When they come to Capitol Hill a third time, let them be ready to offer nn honest labor program of their own. The country has had enough of these absurd professions of lily-white innocence. "Honest-Self-Criticism Is Prime Need of Labor Labor leaders don't often indulge in self-criticism, so when they do the event should be marked well. We had such an instance the other • day when George 51. Harrison, president of the Brotherhood of Railway Clerks, took his fellow unionists to task , for too often ignoring the general good while serving their own selfish interests. The labor movement, he said, probably "places too much emphasis on the narrow policy of higher wages and shorter hours to the neglect of other important matters." Brother Harrison's words are re• freshing. It's the first inkling we've had that labor may not be as pure" as its spokesmen so stoutly maintain. No reasonable person wants labor to nod an eager second to every charge : leveled against it, or to indulge in a rash of self-censure. But it would be welcome proof of growing maturity if unions would concede they are as much guilty of human error and excess as the next fellow. Unfortunately the chief offenders in promoting the idea that labor is without sin have been its highest leaders, William Green, president of the AFL, and Philip Murray, head of the CIO. One may comb their public remarks diligently without encountering the slightest hint that all is not perfect within their domains. This attitude was most pointedly evident in the 3917 and 1949 congressional headings on the Taft-Hartlcy law. Undoubtedly many lawmakers approached labor law revision in vindictive fashion. But many others were moderate men earnestly worried by the impact of labor strife on the general welfare. These men sought vainly first to get labor to admit shortcomings which were plainly written in the nation's economic history, and second to propose its own plan for better labor relations. Unions took the view that no problems existed and hence no law was needed. It's hard for a bystander to see how this juvenile stubbornness is any more commendable than the blindness of the many industrialists who so long insisted there was no "labor problem." Taft-Hartley will loom large in the 1050 election campaign. And if the Democrats retain their grip on Congress, next year is certain to sec another try «t repealing that act. • The best thing Green and Hurray can d6 meantime is to engage in the Operation Etiquetchup The Army handed out a stern lesson in table manners recently, Two enlisted luen were court-martialed for refusing lo pass the ketchup to a sergeant. "Increased respect for senior noncommissioned officers, along with a keener awareness of correct table manners, is expected of all GI's as the result of the trial," said the Army. This sounds as if the top brass expected the boys to rush out and gobble up copies of Emily Post's liliqxiette.. A more likely result will be a new password lo denote the approach of a sergeant: "Please pass the ketchup!" Views of Others Federal School Grants Would Bring Controls President Trumnu's statement, that he opposes federal control of the schools will not convince those who have studied his record. He has been advocating controls in almost every other field. He refuses to give up wartime controls that should have been relin'qnbhed long ngo. He wants to extent! rent control after the need for it lias passed. He has been asking Congress to impose federal control over public health. He demands even more drastic reins on business and industry. If Mr. Truman's rosy predictions were borne out, this would be tne first instance in which federal grants to the states have not been followed by controls, Still valid Js the adage that he who pays the piper calls the tune. If the President were sincere in his position, he should have no objection to a provision that would ban federal educators from travel at public expense outside the District of Columbia or from making long-distance telephone calls on expense accounts, One can imagine the uproar in Washington if Congress should propose such a ban. The proposed federal grants to schools would not be something' Iree. They would require a special tax or some addition to the present tax rates. They would be not so much a help as an extra burden for the already overloaded taxpayer. II and where more taxes are needed for schools, they should come from the states antf districts Involved. A federal . c chool tax, besides bringing federal control and regimentation, would add the waste of supporting an army of needles supervisors who would spread from Washington over the whole country. —DALLAS MORNING NEWS Support ancfeontrol The Senate has voted for rigid control if the price of potatoes is supported by the government next year. Control is logical and practically inevitable II there is no other way to prevent the piling up ol unmanageable surpluses, with sacrifice of all or most of the government's money. Control brings regulation and a certain measure of "regimentation," but whose subsidy you take, his song and dance act you perform. —ARKANSAS GAZETTE So They Say British Fog—A Bit Thick, What? Bruce Barton, well-known advertising mnn. and son of the late Dr. Congregational minister, wrote few years ago a Jesus, under the Knows," which had a very unique and challenging amour; reviewers. But, though the an important emphasis upon an aspect of the Christian movement, beginning with Jesus Himself, has generally been overlooked. We think of Jesus as a gentle teacher.

Military Aid to Implement French Effort to Find Security By DcWIU Al 1 Foreign Affairs Analyst America's billion dollar millturr aid program for the rearming of Western Europe Is uniler way, th\w starting Implementation of the Grand Defense strategy of. the Atlantic allfeji .approved by President Truman only six weeks ago. It is worthy or note that lhe shipment was to France. This sisted of warplanes which were put aboard the French aircraft carrier Dixmudc at Norfolk. France will get further help, and her acting ambassador, Jean Darld«n, declared that the aid prgoram "will facilitate the determined effort which France is making to ensure her own security, a condition and consequence of the security of all." M. Darldan wasn't employing empty .words. La Belle Prance is vastly worried about her security and with good reason, having been trampled under the hob-nailed boots of Invading armies three times since 1870. As a matter of fact the current stale visit of French President Auriol to London Is said to be concerned in part with defense of Eur- tv.'o. choosing other seventy besides j ope In general and of France in the Twelve, instructing them as to I particular. As Paris sees it, the American-Western ffliropean military strategy is based on Britain. The French want the defense centered solidly around their country .so that it won't again be overrun by foreign troops. France's recent sensational pact with Germany's former ricli coal- mining Saar Basin fits into this picture. The Saar becomes a "republic" with considerable autonomy but with Paris In control of military security and foreign affairs. also gets the coal for fifty All this is subject to aproval o German peace treaty conference, Now as pointed out in a previous column, the Saar Basin is of vast EDSONS Uncle Sam Wants Out of Egg Business But Finds Few Takers for His Stock many of, and how would you like them—frozen or dried?

Shortage on East and West Coasts _ The fact is not generally recounted, but the government has bought no eggs in the populous east, nor on the west coast. Tt has not been necessary. There is an egg shortage In these areas, not'a surplus, and it is tilts shortage which is blamed for high egg prices in city markets. One question frequently a.sked !s why Uie surplus eggs from the mid- west couldn't he shipped "east to relieve the shortage and break the high prices? The principal reason given Is that the midwest farm or nest eggs are ungraded and too small for city mcrKet acceptance. Only about one or two eggs out of a dozen would be accepted by the. egg trade.
