The Army ami Navy Air Forces have taught 3,000,000 men to operate and service airplanes, to conduct airways communications and operate airports. .Many of these 3,000,000 will certainly want to find peacetime jobs that will let them make use of their special. ized knowledge. Certainly, too, the fruits of that specialized knowledge are too valuable to he .wasted. But where are the jobs to be found? It is most unlikely that they can all be developed in this country. There is no reason', however, why they should. American airplanes will likely be sold all over the world. So why should there not be opportunities for our air-trained and air-minded veterans in many of these foreign •markets? They have gained an iutiinnte knowledge of Ainer^ ican aviation products ami teelmk|ue in a rugged, thorough school. , These men could play an important part in opening new commercial frontiers, and in stimulating the international trade which is essential to international prosperity and peace. The assurance of American service for American planes could hardly fail to make our aircraft more desirable to foreign buyers, especially in the immediate postwar years. -.There is assurance that the government 1 will assist business in this expanding field of foreign trade as it has in others. The State Department is planning to add civil air attaches to its. various diplomatic staffs. , But it seems to us that the-aviation industry, for its own good, should as< sume responsibility for developing foreign job opportunities for aviation veterans. Industry, not government, should inform the veterans of these opportunities, encourage them to take them and, if necessary, give them further training. Such a program, would be a guarantee of 3,000,000 jobs. But it seems likely that it would be another safeguard against a complete catastrophic 1 N collapse of our war-expanded aviation industry, besides giving; congenial and richly deserved jobs to many of the men who won victory in tho air. Debt to Society The well-worn phrase about "paying a debt to society" takes on a new meaning in the case of the several him; drcd inmates of t hreo prisons who have volunteered as "guinea pigs" in •' testing new drugs to combat malaria. Their volunteer duty will extend beyond that of the soldiers who bared their arms to the anopheles mosquito' •jn Walter Reed's search for the malaria carrier. For these men will not only contract the disease, but will submit to experiments with potential rcm-. edies whose properties and correct dosage arc as yet irnjxjrfcclly known. If the tests arc successful, malaria sufferers have promise not of'the relief and control that quinine and atabrine bring, but of complete euro of this recurring disease. Most Important, success will provide a remedy' for thousands of soldiers who have contracted . this painful, exhausting and'sometimes fatal disease. ' • It is significant that these prisoners are promised nothing beyond the best . of care. They take'full .responsibility for all consequences.' They are offered no special privileges, commutation of sentence, or other reward. They are simply, in the best and truest sense, paying their debt to society. Strong West Wind/Perhaps It has probably occurred to a good : many people by now that the Russians got the Oder long before we uncorked Cologne. America can no longer sit smugly behind a mental Maglnol Line. Either America must be constantly ready to repel alone nil and any attacks from the rest of the world, or we must, bo willing to cooperate with friendly stales to check- the first sign of aggression ^011 the part of any member of the family of nations.—vice President Harry S. Truman. « * • We must be constantly on the alert for the flight to tills hemisphere .of Nazi funds - and Nazi underground leaders who will seek to find a refuge lierg as a base for an ultimate' comc- bnck.—Secretary oi State Edward R. Stettinius Jr. • » • A reviewer must be blunt. I believe in violence in reviewing. Only with violence can you be of ..much use to yovSr readers. Mistaken kindness to an author may be a betrayal of your readers.— Dr, Joseph Wood Kruteh, Columbia U. literature professor. • * • Hitherto the idea of a new Europe lias been linked with that of German hegemony. Henceforth propaganda on this theme should soft- pedal German hegemony and stress equality for the French.—instructions found on German officers.

'(To Be Continued) , MONDAY, MAKCIi 12, 1945 Death Watch on the Rhine * BSON W WASHINGTON Wallace Stirs Up His Aides BY 1'ETKK EDSQN NEA Washington Correspondent • WASHINGTON. — Henry Wallace's assumption of his new jot) us Secretary of Commerce lias stirred up that moribund old institution more than anything since the days of Herbert Hoover. There are today more minors in the place than filing cabinets to hold them, 'ana what comes out is going to be something to watch. Reorganization of the staff is being held up pending ihe return to Washington of Undersecretary Wayne Clmtllcld Taylor, who has been In Mexico City for the con-; Terence of American republics. Tny t - lor was a Jesse Jones appointee aii(} he" practically ran the department while Jones spent most of his time running the Federal Lonii Agency. Taylor has indicated he would be glad to stay on under Wallace if asked, but lie may not be asked. Dr. Amos W. Tnylor, head of the Bureau of Foreign and Domestic Commerce, hns been in almost constant consultation with Wallace since lie look the onth, cmd would seem to be a fixture. Dallas lawyer Harold Yomifc'. who was Wallace's secretary while lie was Vice Presi'-l (lent, has moved to Commerce as his personal assistant. HIWGETKEK SMITH A CAl.LEU One of Wallace's first luncheon guests in his big new office was Director of the Budget Harold D. Smith. That s t a r t c d" Commerce buzzing with all sorts of speculation, Smith being In charge of all executive agency reorganization. Commerce already, has a number laches, now under State Department. Possible transfer to Commerce of Interstate Commerce Commission, Federal Communications Commission, Foreign Economic Administration and other more or less independent agencies, is still in the rumor stage. If PEA should be moved from Commerce to State it would give Wallace much of the work he formerly did as head of Bureau of Economic Warfare, before his big row with Jones. Wallace is planning to inaugurate weekly press conferences, and the wire news services iiave applied for desk "space in the Department of Commerce press room. Like the •appearance of the first robins, these are good indicatiojis that things are going to unfreeze and there will be worms of Information worth digging for. Wallace was similarly reticent as Vice President, holding less than half a dozen press conferences during his four years on Capitol Hill. But as Secretary of Commerce that will be-changed. Wallace's'press conference personality hasn't been too hot. His reports on Junkets to'South • In Hollywood BY KKSKINK JOHNSON NKA Staff Correspondent Thare are always things to see and hear on movie sets. So today let's tour the lots. Fred Astalre Is tapping out n dance routine beside a rehearsal piano on tho set of "Yolando and the Thief." at' M-G-M. There's a pork pie hat on. his head and a wad of gum In his mouth. It's ft toss-up whether his Jaw or Ills feet are moving faster. , Fred, as asual, talks belter with his feet than with words. When we ask him what he has dreamed up In the dancing line for this movie, he licms and haws and says: "Well, It's different — yes -"I think so—It's what we were trying to get—I think—it's a sort of — well, wo changed it a little—it's a —Bosh, maybe you better ask someone else." Fred is more articulate, though, when we change the subject to his two children, seven-year-old Pred- cilc. Jr., and three-year-old Ava. Ava likes to visit the set when he's working.- She already understands Hollywood. "What do wo do at the studio?' Fred asked her the other day. Ava replied: "You dp it again." ON THE BALI. Lucille : Ball is hoofing, too, In the dance rehearsal hall. Dance Director Jack Donahue is putting finishing touches to a continental Polka for "Early to Wed." Lucille is puffing in a yellow sweater and tan slacks. Siic takes off her dancing siloes and there Is a big hole in the heel of her stocking. "I'm not used to this," she says. "We've been rehearsing for a week ami I'm a worn-out and' bruised character. You should have seen me day after we started this business." She brought out a photograph of herself in a wheel chair,'pushed by Busier 'Ken ton'. Two of her teeth America and China were publicity! flops. Some of his advisers have therefore been fearful that the Secretary of Commerce should go slow But if he is to tlo anything about building himself up as a presiden- tial, possibility for 1948, he can't remain a shrinking violet. Wallace already has strong backing in farm and labor elements. If he can sell himself (o businessmen as a great Secretary of Commerce, he's in a strong position, political? ly. His speeches to business organizations will bear particular patching. He certainly isn't going to use . his Department of Commerce post I to ruin his chances.

All sorts of names have been bandied about as candidates for these jobs. Most of them arc long shots, but this speculation adds lo the fun of Washington's favorite pastime— reorganizing a department under a new boss. ' What has particularly pepped up the Commerce slafT since the advent of Wallace is that they now have a boss who is showing an interest in what they're doing and is not preoccupied with RFC and other Federal Ixjnn Agency affairs, as was Jesse Jones. In meetings with" his department heads, Wallace has already given his division chiefs some new problems to work on, has speeded them vip oil other projects already tegim, ami they love ft Wallace's particular domestic pets are aid to small business and the full employment program.
