Civic Interest to Meet Stern Test on March 21 The Chamber of Commerce's Industrial Committee-is'anxiously awaiting March 21. On that day at 7:30 p.m. the committee will conduct a forum on in- dustrilizatioh in the municipal court room of City Hall. The forum is simply for the purpose of swapping ideas. The committee will attempt to inform interested citizens of its plans for bringing industry to Blytheville and in turn will ask for suggestions from the citizens,- who are looting the bill in the form of the chamber's enlarged budget. The need for action to gain industry is urgent and obvious. Opinions on how the chamber should proceed apparently are plentiful. The committee is anxious to get these opinions. Therefore, the forum should be highly successful. However, it will be interesting to see i£ this city's heve-to-fore apathetic attitude toward forums, meetings and ; the like (although such meetings may ;.. have the most vital effect on the town's culture and economy) will bo cracked to the extent that a representative group will be on hand at 7:30 p.m. on March 21. Splitting a Hair Awakening, Not insults It hns been brought lo llic attention of the Courier News that some of the sewer pictures currently appearing in this newspaper are not very pretty. It also has been mentioned that residents of areas in which the photographs were made feel there may be some sort of insult connected with publication of these pictures. For truth, these points bat .500. The pictures definitely are not pretty. But the sewers themselves arc even uglier when viewed first-hand. At least there is no actual odor connected with the pictures. And these photographs are not intended to be insulting. We do not wish the residents of these areas lo feel we are "taking a slap at them." The Courier News is merely attempting to portray the city's outmoded sewer system as it actually is. It may be hard lo believe, but this lias been deemed nqccssary because there are residents o£ Blythcville who only vaguely realize sewer conditions here. Wo want to'show them that the stories they hear and read contain no fabrications or exaggerations. Ugly pictures do not appeal to us. But sewer conditions as currently exist appeal to us even less. We arc only trying to awaken, not insult. In the old days even fairly modest homes often had the proportions of a castle. The rooms were wide and dce"j> and the ceilings were high. For some decades now, we've watched builders squeeze these dimensions down to today's "compact" rooms. Still, until the Supreme Court spoke the other clay, a man could continue to think of his place as his castle. But the court changed that. It said federal officers don't have lo have a search warrant to ins'pect a man's premises and seize property, so long as the search is part of a "lawful" arrest. The Constitution protects him against "unreasonable searches and seizures," but the court majority says a search linked lo a lawful arrest is reasonable. Furthermore, it cites past decisions in support of Ibis view. Maybe there is some precedent. Hut we tend to side with the three-man minority conclusion that this decision does violence to the Constitution. Certainly the majority is drawing pretty thin the line between fair protection and unreasonable entry into a man's home. Views of Others Civil Defense Looks Forward Too few people put a sensible connotation on the saying that is at least as old as Horace (B % .C. 35): "In time of peace, prepare for war." It has been voiced In every age since. It lias been said in various ways. Some who said it and all whu heard it have apparently constructed. the meaning to be simply that we must keep armed. That is sound enough, for so we must. But it is equally important, perhaps more so, to adjust our civil thinking in time of peace to the conduct of the whole people In time of war. There Is this sort of common sense In Sen. John Bricker's Sunday discussion on the hysterics of fear of atomic attack. There was even more of it in the New York address ol the Secretary of Defense in which Louis Johnson asserted that we can not guarantee immunity against atomic attack but can provide adequate reprisal. In the age to which we must adjust ourselves. In Its present outlook, we should assume twa things. The first Is tlmt wnr is quite likely to come, tile second that In war we will be subjected to the higher risks of modern mcliods ot spreading destruction. The hazard Is no greater for the Individual, perhaps not even more horrible, than It has ever been. The risk Is to greater number of Individuals, it is lessened Insotar as we adopt and accustom ourselves lo permanent measures of responsible dealing with the emergency that may arise. The Brickcr and Johnson talks have been timed admirably to the reaction on federal and state levels of the civiljlcfcnse program. Oti March 1 Taul J. Larscn tcok^ovcr as first chairman ol the new federal agency charged with planning wartime civil defense, the Civilian Mobilization Office, created by the National Security Resources Board which, since March, 1048, has been responsible lor this aspect of national security. Twelve states have set up civil defense plans and others have them in the making. No doubt in the case o[ a surprise atomic attack, there would be decided hysteria at the points of destruction. It would be surprising were this not true. But the essential point is not to have a demoralized nation stunned by disaster but nn understanding, trained, fighting nation ready to strike back. This we can have only by preparing both our thinking and our training in advance. —DALLAS MORNING NEWS Secretary Acheson Spells It Out At Last! A Way to Prevent Future Wars— sions?

He says he thinks about 57 of the 31 arc still in government service, but many of these are not in Slate Department. All his cases thus far Identified arc taken from, tlic so-called I.ce Report ol 1947. This was compiled by Robert E. Lee, former FIJI man who was made chief of the House Appropriations Committee Investigative staff by Rep. John Taber of New York Few of Senator McCarthy's case summaries give any in formation beyond 1047. President Truman's loyalty investigation program was begun in March of that year. Senator McCarthy now seems much more interested in forcing the President to release loyalty files than anything else. "Case No., n" Defends Himself Senator McCarthy has backtracked considerably on his orij/nally charges against David Dcmarcst Lloyd, young White House staff assistant cited as "Case No. 9" McCarthy's two new charges against Lloyd don't hold much water. One charge is that Lloyd wrote President Truman's Oklahoma City -speech of October. 1948, and that the President read It with practically no changes. This was the speech in which the President criticized the House Un-American Activities Committee under the 80th Congress. Lloyd snys simply that he did not write the speech. McCarthy's second chnvge is that Lloyd defended the Hisses in a report on the loyalty program. Lloyd was a research man on.the Democratic National Committee staff in 1918. and did prepare a 55-p;\pc 'report on Hi e loyalty program. which ha signed. It hart several paragraphs oti the Hiss case, concluding with. "No evidence hns yet been introduced by the committee to indicate that they (Al^cr and Donald Hiss) were disloyal." This \\-a.s written before the Whit- laker Chambers pumpkin papers had been disclosed. Real Two-Parly System May Gel Results Bis question now facing British jHililical leaders Is whether a ,nnw election would produce results much different from the election just concluded, ff another election gave the Labor Party a majority tio bigger than tts present one, the result would be no more conclusive than it is now. And if the Conservatives should win. it would not be by a greater majority than was given to Labor. Much depends on the coming "King's speech" to the new Parliament, setting Labor's policies for the immediate future, in any event, a special election is not considered likely until after the British budget is ' passed by parliament, making appropriations for the next fiscal yea r. Coalition government, s u c h Britain had during the war, is not considered likely. Disappearance ov an active opposition would probably weaken the government. Instead, Britain may be In for another period of vigorous two-party government, with slender majorities for party hi power.

Legion Launched a Boomerang Citizens' Committee which is pushing the Hoover Commission recommendation is delighted at ihe neavy-hamiecl manner iti which American Legion is opposing reorganization of Veterans' Adminis- .ration. Thc Legion's objections to VA cuts have aroused advocates of greater economy in government.
