Proponents of the proposal to increase the quota of displaced persons permitted to enter the United States were rudely frustrated by Congress Saturday in shelving action until next January, and so keen has been the disappointment of some of the leaders in the program that they are insinuating the United States is neglectful of these unfortunates and mot at all humani- ta ria n in dealin g witkthese victims of the war, " . In view of the extreme generosity which the people of this country have displayed in attempting to aid ; other peoples, it comes with ill grace to hear such criticism at this, time. In all history never has there been recorded such efforts of a victorious 'nation to assist the vanquished" and 'allies In postwar read" justments as the United States has exerted since the Jap surrender. ;7 -' j When one is inclined to be critical it is wellto;review the statistics as given Congress .by Spnator Harry Byrd of Virginia when he recently outiined the assistance this goveftmenf has e: tended since the end of the war. - , ' He called attention to the fact that $320,000,000 for direct relief for military supplies, some $2,600,000,000 has been spent in UNRRA and that by the end of this year there will be $3,800,-000,000 has been spent for government and relief in occupied areas. In addition, by the end of the shelled out by taxpayers for-relief assistance to war-devastated countries; some $577,000,000 in interim foreign air and there was $3,700,000,000 in the British loan, the record . for . which is now under review, Also by the.eni of the year there will be $2,000,000,000 in Export-Import Bank loans, $1,900,000,000 spent in Office of Foreign Liquidation property transfers and aid to Greece and rurkey will reach the staggering total e f -$607,000, 00 0r 1 -In-thePhilippineaid-prograra$768, 000, 000-will bedoled out before January 1 and the Europeah-recovery program will cost Uncle Sam $9,200,000,000 before the turn of the year. To China will go $351,000,000, and the International Childrens Emergency Fund will be financed to the tune of $75,000,000. -J The International Bank subscription will total $635,000,000 while $212,000,000 goes to the International Refugee Organization; $217,000,600 to the International Monetary Fund.- Though the war has long been over $2,600,000,000 has been advanced for lend-lease material transferred to nations abroad after the last gun was fired. Other foreign aid will total $355,000,000 and by the end of the year $8,000,000 will be spent by the Displaced Persons Commission and $16,000,000 for the Palestine-refugee program. Hold your breath, the total of all such aid has amounted to $27,100,000,000. Military aid in one form or another will bring the total to well over 35 billion dollars. And they call him Uncle Shylock. UNITY NOT YET. Unification of the armed services is theoretically sound despite todays bickering and apparent insubordination on the part of the Navy in opposing-the broad program of operation. -The plan likewise is practicable and can be worked out, but certainly there is need for a Houdini to devise the system. To date there has not been unification though technically it has been in force and it would seem that the big barrier to actuals coordination has developed because of -.the necessity of one branch of the services to be controlled by the other two branches. Just as surely as it becomes'advisable for two branches to reject a proposal by the third, that third department is going to resent and perhaps sulk. That is what is happening today -the Navy has not been willing to stand by idly and watch its program decided by the army and the air force. . la the pastirbas been possible for any one of the branches John Novak, who were awarded the Mfrvisiting friends and renewing to appear before Congress nnd-seekNappEopriationsorttspeTahi'OI,ff lZP -equintaoeesrMr-aHnian awarded to Mr. and Mrs...

Margaret Chase Smith, brilliant-senator, from Maine, has offered two recommendations that sound logical one that would call for the same uniform of all three groups and secondly that "there be transfers from one branch to another. Outwardly, such moves would work for a coordinated effort. - - Differences,' howeveraty more fundamental, but unification should not fail because of the difficulty in early adjustments.

Air Service Is Defended By Symington (Continued From Page L) picture diametrically opposed te feelings of the survey; to H said OLier sent the letter to Seeretary of Defense Johnson last month. ' As for specific arguments the Navy built up in its 10 days of testimony before . the .committee Symington did Ms own point bom bing on one after another. The charge that the Air Force went oyer the head of then Se cretary of Defense Forrestal in buying more B-36s early this year Just doesnt make sense in the light of the facts. And, he said, it Is an equally false story that the Air Force is putting all its eggs in one basket with the B-36. Raps Loo Talk Symington,, derided as simply loose talk designed to catch headlines a Navy statement that the B36 -is a biIlion-dollar blunder. He said the whole program will cost considerably less than a billion. He rejected as a misstatement the Navy's complaint that the Air Force is offering an Atomb blitz pattern of warfare as a quick, easy and painless way to victory... And it Just is not true, Symington said, "that the Air Forcefavors mass Atofnb bombing of civilians. The air secretary said the disturbing thing about the attacks on the-Air7 Force and the . rest of the military establishment is what they have done and are doing to imperil the security of the United States. - He went on: - v It was bad enough to have given a possible aggressor technical and operating details of our newest, and latest equipment In my opinion it is far worse to have opened up k him lpsuch detail the military doctrines Pt how- this country would be defended. We have given the military leaders of any aggressor nation further advantage iii developing their strategic plan by telling them so much about our own." C. C.

City Building 1 Inspection Fees Are Same for All Buildiqg inspection fees are be ing applied to one and all alike, without exception, Conrad Esch- J bach, informed the eftyreoiinciriasf night, when a question of discrim- was given an airing. The subject was I raised when Commissioner Herman Engel re-ported the complaints of two ex-GIs, who he said, told of being assessed fees of $1.50 per $1,000 on the estimated cost of homes they were building, whereas in the past others had paid only $1 o& the same- basis.-- . Eschbach agreed that for two years he had reduced the fee to ex-GIs to $i contrary to the ordinance which calls for a fee of $L50, but because of the amount of work involved and the small sum realized after income tax deductions, had discontinued the. policy, and was making the same rate applicable to all builders. He was supported in his stand by members of the council, who took the position that as long as the ordinance fixed the definite fees, there should be no exception regardless of the status of the person affected. $200. $62.50 WmlraKeni enlarged le rho detail GEMS Imtfudinf fadtral Tat OTHIRS S47.S0 t S5.00 Streator, III.
