A Break iur the Home Eater Tlieie might have been a good ilc;il of \ a'l'iiu i'i this country when the I>ig 'ihiee' 1 , agreement on voting pro- ccdtuc in the international security or- fMminlicn was finally announced. Fortunately there was not, Official and public icnciion'was generally, if tern- reiately, favorable, even though the agreement mea'nt that many who have aimul at peimanont peace will now ha\" to lov.ei their sights considerably. The agieemenl was a compromise solution of a thorny and persistent pioblem And while compromises are nevci veiy idealistic, this one carries a ppiticulailv stiff dose of renlisrn. Bv giving a major power the right 10 veto tuncii opposition to its own ag- giession, the agreement admits thai if , a mnjor power is determined lo go to \\t>, 'h" \voi\A is powerless to stop it b> - iiicans short of another and cer- i-.rJ r.o'a terrible war r th,'.n this one. Tie agi cement-makes it clear that the woild oiganization could take steps to stop, let us'say;- Bolivia from pushing Chile around. But it could do nolh- 11 g lo stop aggression by the United , Slates against Argentina, for example, 01 Britain against Egypt or Russia agaii'&t Poland unless the United States or r.Iiaih or Russia voted themselves the c'£gips c oi> which they certainly Wul 1 ne\ei do. It bc:ame known after ' the Duni- bsitcn Opks meeting that Russia WHS hcl ii g »•' foi Mie veto power against Amc. ICPII and British opposition, in Ihe major points of the compromise Russia was the winner. But perhaps by this veiv \ictoiv Russia has given American senators of isolationist tendency then stionscst reason for supporting our participation in the international peace organization; That seems'-. incongruous until one note's that the veto power applies, amorg other things, to "approval of !>gi cements for supply of armed forces." And if there is anything about inter- rational cooperation that "nationalists" seem paiticularly to abhor it is the liospect of .sending American troops lo giuianl ••• defcna some European Louiu'pi' 'I his, veto power would offer an out . from (his obligation, if they could muster strength lo put through a provision making our representative on the Security Council accountable to the Senate in «ll major decisions. And so these senators might support the or- orgaimalion in (he hope of making our participation in it purely advisory. Why then the general mild rejoicing? Because, it seems to us that people realize that this voting arrangement is another step toward unity among the great nations. It may be an imperfect step, but it takes us that much farther away from the deadly opposition of what the. President has called "perfectionism." lint it has reaffirmed what has always been abundantly clear—that no rules, laws or leagues can achieve international peace without each government's sincere desire for peace. The re'e More Than One Way of Killing a Goose The Voting Compromise Most Americans eat at home most of the lime, and (he OPA has finally taken cognizance of that fact. In con- se(|UC!ifi! the agency is going lo "recall" surplus food slocks of restaurants, hotels and institutions, made known through- inventory figures, by deducting points or pounds from these establishments' rations. Since general rationing came into effect, one of its principal inequities has hcen the fact that a person could jjel most scarce foodstuffs in a hotel or resiiunanl which were unobtainable by the home shopper, provided only he were willing lo pay Ihe prices asked. This lias been more generally true in the larger cities, particularly so in the case of meat. We realize that the proprietors of eating places have plenty of headaches tl'.cse days. But we don't think that hoarding by a business establishment or institution is any more commendable than hoarding by a housewife. And we don't think that these establishments will suffer unduly by going on more of a day-to-day basis like the mi of us home caters. mmlns in OEH he was picked In President to be head of the -In Hollywood HV 1»HSKINK JOHNSON NKA Stiff Correspondent HOLLYWOOD — UEHIND THE SCREEN: While making personal ippenrances at the San Francisco >r«ntere oi 'Since You Went Away," Joseph Colon and his wife tved at a fashionable but pracll- :ally ma! nay City hotel.

REMEMBER XXXII UPRISING IN POLAND rpHE hours passed into days, the , - 1 - days into weeks, and the weeks into months and Jozef Eisner — grayer, thinner— : never had a direct word Irom Frederic —"master pianist, masler composer, and still my pupil, Monsieur"—as the old man never failed to tell anyone who would listen. Frederic's slar was in the ascendant. He was hot only talked about, he was played by the master pianists of the day, including of course Franz Liszt himself. Jozef Eisner gloried in Frederic's success. But not without reservations. Yet he could never hear the name of Chopin without a beam lighting his eye nor a bloom warming his cheek. If an occasional tear showed itself, he .ubbed it brusquely away, choosing to think it was the consequence of weak eyes rather than o£ a torn heart. His visits lo Plcvel et Cic be came fewer. He hungered foi news but there was never an' ' news Frederic had withdrawn , from the \vorld, voluntarily o • otherwise. He appeared occa 'tvonally in the salons of the grea ,—and would sometimes oblige .select audience with a rc'-dilio •xA one o£ his own compositions. .; Whenever Jozef. Eisner stoppe ' "in at JPIeyct et Cic it was alway ,on the pretext of obtaining Frci 'eric's latest music. One day a familiar voice grcclc ,hlrn. "Professor Eisner! How ar "jou?" — * H was Fran? Liszt ' "—Ah, Maestro Fine —fin .thank you" They shook hands; Liszt warm tticcd Ihe shecl music Jozef sner had just purchased. "Solnc- ing of Frederic's?" "—Urnm, I happened to he assing," Jozcf Elsucr said, seek- g lo cover his embarrassment. Well, I enjoyed meeting you—" Liszt held him. "You haven't cen him for a long time?" Jozcf Eisner's chin went up True—quite true, Maestro. But lonsicur Pleycl keeps me ormed." Franz Liszt look that statement or what it seemed lo be worth, 'hich was not much. "You know, icn, that Frederic is not well?" Jozef Eisner knew nothing oi ic kind but his pride would not ct him admit his ignorance. Ho aid, lightly: "There's no danger s there?" Franz Liszt did not answer. "—Well, you agree, dcn't yon?' "Yes." Liszt bowed his head. "'. igree, certainly." •Then what could be wrong' N'othing! Frederic is husy, Macs ro..So am I. We both have ou vprk."; Jozef Eisner attempted i smile. "Well, Monsieur—" Franz Liszt When he mean hi some s; care lo hear him? "—Salon, Maestro?" Jozcf Kls- ner shook his head. "No—really, salons are not In my circles—" 'cry much It will disturb him." Frederic came inlo the room Ic was thin. His face was whitci han ever, his movements mor< erky. "I'm late for our appoinlmenl Jouis. You will forgive inc." IMcyel pretended lo be gay. H 'orgave Frederic, of course. Then >c glanced at George who was unobtrusively folding the paper to keep it from Frederic's sight. "How do you feel this morning, [''rcdenc?" George asked. Frederic didn't answer directly. lie walked across the room. Truthfully, Louis, I am not exactly m a mood for business." His mind seemed lo be wandering. "If it's nothing important, Louis — " "Does Louis ever have anything important, darling?" Jvionsicur Pleycl frowned. "—He brings the same old story. You've heard it a hundred times. Kvcry cily in Europe will •_ :y you a fortune for one concert appearance. Isn't that right, Louis?" "Yes. absolutely." Frederic smiled, but it was a forced rmilc. He palled George's "Is that all, - Loi;is?'' l.ouis Pleycl gulped. "—Well. Louis, you have the story; I have the same an- still, it's very me: to sea yen." Pic-yel's ccllnr cnuiH no* last November has been known by act of Congress as Director of tha j Office of War Mobilization- '.aiiji Reconversion. Justice Byrnes has een around Washington for 26 of Is G4 years. In the last five years, lie war years, he has been given uore thankless jobs, and in the amc breath he has been given j any honors and some of the worst breaks ever 'handed any man In public life. Byrnes was first elected lo Conore's from South Carolina in 1910. was In the House for-14 years, :hen out of It for six before going to the Senate. He had been a Senator for 10 years when the war liroke out. In the National Defense Era before Pearl-Harbor he had the tough job of pushing through the big appropriation bills for Army and Navy, against the Isolationist, let's- keep- diit-of-this-one sentiment. Later he was called on to ire nil his ability as a great ra- tionalizer, a great connrovrilser, :\ great Senate pctler-of-lhlngs-clotic, to win Congressional acceptance for lend-lcase, price control aild other highly controversial emergency legislation.
