PAGE WO BLYTHEVItYlVl*; COURIER NE AfftAP illNIOK RUSSIA Since the • beginning of 1945 I saw'a rhfd-Victorlan rig, a horse and buggy, pass an automobile !o!> a graded roa ^' It was not a race. The car was not running. vThd motorist was out changing a tire. The driver of the rig sat up straight: and pressed his horse for a bit of extra speed going by, which' was funny,' Tlic car owner made Uie change and drove Into town /ar ahead of the buggy. ••:. Between • 1928 and 1938 the United ,- States, the world's outstanding . industrial nation of all time, had an'industrial depression. Meanwhile the Union of Soviet So- c'allst Republics was moving forward; not rapidly, but at nn increasing rate. In.-those years It was .being transformed from an .agricultural to an Industrial nation,'a stage through which America had passed, half a century before. A Wind-Broken Nag ;• Russia wis' driving n, horse named "Central Planning." Trie rig made an-Interesting dash, for Improvement,' not .'very fast •• however, ,.iior 'very spec'teula'r. 'Claims made'i for the "anlnmi's'speed wbrc funny; certainly not.nil true. IJvIng conditions in Russia, were not,'ns high as those, in'Alnerlca In the pit of our. depression; never have been before nor since. It was a splurge, better than Russia had-before, but far below American achievement. . There is .'nothing 1 new about Central Planning! it's ns old ns horse-drawn equipment/Kings, tyrants and dictators, have always used .the.-Idea, Some- have done better with it than 'others,''depending..'on. the ruler: Russia's recent nilcrs have been anything but stupid. Their 'military, generalship has -the .w'rold agog. Russia bns made a 'marvelous .fight, .using American equipment extensively. Fort National Safety You would; think that Russia, living next door to'.nn armed desperado for. 25 years could have 'adequately prepared for war. No; Central Planning couldn't do- it. It took, a raid oh Pearl Harbor to .wake America' from, ,n sweet dream of peace, 'but Ainerlcn 'i?nt Into action:, w.lth Private Ewer- prise and, In; four years, nnned the L United Nations for victory. .This demonstrates which system is better for 'national safety. : But war Is never America's main objective. We. are d-'peace-loving people and. we want'to work and prosper and live well. Some say that America, :in view of Russia's achievements, ought to junk Free Enterprise and adopt Central Planning;- Knowing thnt Russia's achievements have never compared to our own, the suggestion Is preposterous. Let's examine the figures of an expert for a moment: • Development Compared ; Leopold' Schwafzchtld, in his recent booS: : 'called "Primer of tlie Coming-World," shows some index" figures, to make-a fair comparison of •.industrial gains: in similar perj- Washington Miscellany By PETER KDSON NBA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON, D. C. — Vice President Harry Truman, after only a month on his new job, Is discovering that It hns a lot more lips and downs to it than his old Job of Senator. Trying to be a good follow has put him In several embarrassing positions. That cheesecake photograph, with Lauren Bacall sitting on Die loj> of nil upright piano while he gazed Into her eyes, brought him no lltlle criticism tor being undignified. Then he went to an Informal luncheon of Capitol workers, which he used to attend more or less regularly as a Senator, saying what he pleased without anybody caring. But the first of these sessions he attended as V. p. became fl news event and a few of the stories rubbed the wrong way. Hereafter, the Vice President may not be so free and easy In tils ways. » • • STRANGE IlBnFELI.OWS National Service legislation, otherwise known as the woik-or-else bill, has made some strange partners In the line-up of supporters and opponents. National Association of Manufacturers and nearly all labor unions have.been violently opposed, nut National steel Tn- tliisty Advisory Committee, made up of people like Eugene Grace, nm) the heads of the extreme left wing unions like Harry Bridges, favor It. * • • Assistant Secretary of Stale Archibald- MacLcish Is going to be master of ceremonies lit all (he State Department's new series of Saturday night radio shows, though other actors on the seven weeks' series will change from week to week, depending on program. National Broadcasting hired Selden Menefee, Washington free lance wrllcv and public relations coim- selfl to prepare the original script. Mcncfec look n .stenographer am! asked questions of Slate Department (op men fast for roles In the scries. Then Mencfce wove the answers into dialog. MacLclsh, who refuses to let anyone ghost for him, Ls rewriting much of Mene- fcc's script. Tentatively, this seven- week Slate Department Saturday night &oaii_ opera is to be followed by seven weeks of Senate Foreign Relations Committee discourses, seven weeks wlndup by leading societies interested In Intcnmtlon- n) peace and security. Big Idea is to bring (he Department and foreign affairs closer to the public. MacLeLsh wns chosen lo m. c. the .show because of his position ns head of public and cultural relations, nLso because he Is most experienced radio performer In Ihe Department. 44* WAR BITKS DOG Senator Harry Fl<A)d Byrtl of Virginia lives In Washington at the swank Shorchnm hotel and therV- kceps a inagnlflclent Great. Dane. After its evening walk with the Senator, the dog goes into the hotel drug store lunch counter, where a soda jcrker feeds the big animal n couple of anemic wartime weenies, for which the Senator later pays. "It helps a little," be snys. Congressmen are being swamped by pleas from parents of service men, asking that their .soldier boys who have been overseas for n couple of years or more be given leaves to conic home. There Lsn"t anything the Congressmen can do alioul these requests ns the soldiers nrc chosen by their overseas commanders. But the volume of this and other O. I. Bill of TllgbU mall has forced some Congressmen lo put on !>n e.\trn secretary to handle veterans' affairs exclusively. On his trip lo Russia and China last year. Henry 'Wallace thought he was so healthy that he wouldn't have to wear an oxygen mask on hops over the higher mountains as required by Army Air Transport Command regulations. Twice the then-Vice President refused ods—Russia while nl her best In 1028-38 and America In a similar period. Here arc three for n sample: U. S. S. R. U.S.A. Coal Mining 590 1332 .Raf'r-acl Building 38 SKI Automobiles 129 2.CKJG The Russian government Is an autocracy. One political party controls everything, including newspapers am) radio, but not more than 2 per cent of the people belong to It . . . the upper class. Kick up a rumpus about it If you want to go to the salt mines and serveyonr country for Insufficient, board and clothes. The system overcomes employment, but wages arc only one- sixth of wages-In America and the- standard of living only onc-slxlh as high. I am In favor ot keeping private enterprise here.
