On the basis of this stoppage, no sweeping statements can bo made regarding the act's overall effectiveness. But the mine walkout did show that the injunction is futile as a delaying device if the workers are aroused enough to defy court orders. In thhis case they probably would not have gone back even had the court found the union guilty of contempt and imposed heavy penalties for non-compliance. But proving the injunction unworkable doesn't necessarily make the whole law useless. Nor is it an answer to an unworkable provision to propose no provision at all. The public is entitled 'to some kind of safeguard against strikes that imperil health and safety. If the injunction isn't that protection, then Congress should devise a better plan. Whatever the machinery, it should he of such a nature as to discourage both labor and .management from inviting its use. For if it affords no favors to either side, then the negotiators will be more likely to gel down to real bargaining promptly. And the public interest will be served as it should. New Contract No Medicine For the Sick Coal industry Though the country is ns used to coal ^trikes as it is to cold :snaps, the stoppage just' ended was especially nightmarish. Everyone concerned must hope there'll be no early repetition of the ordeal. Gauged by the contract terms, the outcome is a definite victory for John L. Lewis, who won out over much tougher obstacles than he usually faces, lie didn't get all he asked for, but he gained a substantial wage boost for his miners, a hike in payments to their pension and other welfare funds and a union shop —subject to court ruling. The operators scored a few points. They got rid of the old contract clause saying the miners would work only when "willing and ahle." And they succeeded in limiting "memorial" lay-offs to five days a year. Both features have been open doors to the calling of strikes. But the contract isn't thc only measure. What will happen to the coal in, dustry as result of this agreement and the painful process that led up to it? Thc industry is already sick. Everything suggests its illness has grown worse because of the many production interruptions last year and this. In the past decade repeated coal strikes have turned move and more fuel users to other more reliable energy sources. This lias so reduced the market for coal that, with a five-day work week, the nation's coal needs could be supplied by a mine labor force 100,000 men smaller than today's. The new contract offers no cure for this situation. Its sole contribution is an expiration date 28 months in the future. But what will happen when production once more gets ahead of consumption President Truman, not Lewis or thc operators, made the only sound move . to cope with this problem. The President proposes a commission to study • the industry and recommend ways of getting it onto a healthier basis. The solution may ultimately mean closing many mines and shifting workers to other jobs. But that's better than three-day work weeks for all miners. What's the value of higher wages if you don't get a chance to earn them full time? Lewis claims he helped nol merely his o\vn men but nil labor, by demonstrating that tlie Tatl-Hartley act is worthless. Let's be clear. Thc Taft-IIartley act is a complex statute of many provisions. The only feature really tested by the coal strike was the emergency injunc- Politics Again • Statehood for Alaska has been voted by the House, but observers say the Senate isn't likely to act on it this year. With Alaska now one of thc nation's key military outposts for defense against a potentially menacing Russia, it seems sensible that territory should now be • woven more tightly into our political and economic fabric. The barriers to action on statehood in the Senate are, for the most part, narrowly political. Senators object to the idea that an area with only some 100,000 population should gain equality in the upper chamber by having two senators just like every existing state. Yet Nevada's population isn't much larger. And Alaska's representation in the House would be limited strictly in accord with its population rank. To argue against equal status in the Senate is to contend against the whole theory on which the Senate was organized. . Views of Others Wrong and Unfair The withholding tnx system of collection Is H government, scheme of "painless taxation.... (hat is not a sound or even a wholly honest policy." This is ex-New Dealer, ex-Supreme Court Justice James P. Byrnes speaking In the ilurch 4 Issue of the magazine colliers. Adds Mr. Byrnes thouglilinlly: "Millions or workers do not realize they nre paying income •laxes.Jt costs thc employers time nnd moncyVGJi" collect taxes from their employes, and It oftcn'miriccs thc employee angry with thc employer." Not, of course, mad nt the government, Jor which thc boss Is only a harried, unpaid, overworked, overtaxed and involuntary slave. Mr, Byrnes (now, with more sense, Eimnlng for Washington arrogant Ineptitude for which ho once worked) thinks the cure is to have the employee no his own taxpaying and pay quarterly. Meanwhile, he suggests that every employer should place In every pay envelope a statement that the government Is tnking out just so much taxes, A belter idea than the latter plan Is the one used by a New Jersey firm which gives its workers their pay in full and requires them to repay immediately for transmission the amount of the tax. Quarterly payments may be more practical than remittances from every 1 pay check or envelope but both effective nnd less paiuful. Failures to render and pay would be more numerous than if the deduction had to be completed at once. There would be many failures to render and pay as there arc now. But the fact remains that the present system under which the employer is coerced Into In- vohmtnry servitude as an unpaid tax collector Is as wrong as it is grossly unfair and quite posslblj is i]iK-oiistitu(ional. On this latter point to date the Federal Government has been able to avoid thc Issue. —DALLAS MORNING NEWS So They Say Speaking of Spring Cleaning— Moscow Will Ignore 7-Point* Declaration The By DeWilt MacKcmle Al' Foreign Affairs Analyst Sovlot Prime Minister Stalin, r- «^-r-yr^r-v r- * v/C oovioc Prime Minister Sialln, DOC I UK bA Y :> First Deputy Vice Prime Minister « >„ „ „„„„! „,„„„ Molotov, and other prominent inem- Pnrcnts encounter A Rrcnl mnny b f f u M ' ur hierarchy problems of vr.rlou.-i sorts with their | . - .

Job jrta- jeudcs. WASHINGTON — <NEA>— District of Columbia's experience with veterans' trade schools may give a clue to what has gone wrong nationally with the GI bclow-col- lege level education. Last July thc D. C. Commissioners — particularly Commissioner Guy Mason — became concerned uver complaints ngainst the mushrooming GI trade schools in Washington. Over 300 acnrieintc, arts and vocational schools had been approv- cdby thc Board of Education for GI training. The Board > was required to certify only that the schools had the faculty and equipment to train veterans. It had no responsibility over thc quality ol the training. Nearly • 10 per cent of thc District vels were enrolled In trade schools, and 15 per cent more were taking college-level courses Thc schools were doing a $10,000,000 to $12,000,000 a year business. There was no complaint against established correspondence, trade the old-time colleges nor against nnri vocational schools which had been in business 20 yenrs and more All tiie complains were ngalnst the newer schools. It \vns claimed that they were giving faulty Instruction m some cases and that they were training vets for jobs that simply dldn'i exist. Committee Went To Work So a 20-man committee was nnm cd to investigate. Leon G. Chute „ ..., , lain. Jr., an architect, was named I himself n committee of one to write ' be operated. a report. Investigations Could Halt Complaints The moral of this story, as can be applied nationally in all the states, is that unless there Is a schools there are bound to be complaints of abuses and waste ol both the taxpayers' money and the G entitlement to educational benefits There is a great congressiona fear of federal control over education. This was apparently motivated Congress in taking the inspection and certification o schools for GI training out of the hands of the veterans' Administration.

In effect he called on Moscow to fish or cut bait in this matter. * At the same time he told his a'Jfc dience bluntly: • ^P "I fear, however, that T jnusfc warn you not to raise your hopes.

Wot just for local Jobs. And the fact was cited that every graduate of every school or college lias to go out nml sell himself before he can get n job. One feeling developed In the committee that all these new schools represented new business enterprises in the community and that they "should be encouraged. Also, there was some feeling that the .schools were being fought by labor unions that wanted to restrict the number of men trained In any trade to their own apprentices. After six months of wrangling over points like these, a number of the members felt that thc commit- Por the training and education of disabled veterans, the VA was given this authority. That program has b ecn run of f wl thou t m uch complaint. But the fear of giving the too much control over local education may have backfired in training vets not disabled. .One trouble Is that there are no es t jib) ished stan d ards o I train! n g barbers, bricklayers or beauticians. Schools approved In some states 'A'nuld never have been approved in others. Barbering courses, for Instance, varied from 11 to 101 weeks. Too many new schools were approved too fast. Thus 5GCO, or two out of three trade schools approved for vets, were established after the Gi bill was passed In 15-11. To correct these situations.
