We can hope that when the great system is finished it will still be adequate for the load it must bear. But we cannot help but have misgivings, for too many superroads have been built only to be saddled with a congestion that makes them seem instantly out of date. Already the highway planners have been hit by rising labor and material costs, and ibviously bigger advances in these items can be expected over the years. The 27.5- billion-dollar figure plainly is nothing more than a guidepost to the ultimate cost ol this vital network. CONGRESS CANNOT allow this problem to impede the development of the interstate system. Indeed, it would be well if it could find some way to speed the progress of (he program Under present plans it will proceed at the rate of about 3,000 miles of highway a year after 1961. Meantime, as the 123-mile Massachusetts turnpike opens to add one of the last major links to the U. S. toll road system, the nation's motorists can be grateful it has these superb roadways to ride upon. They do not cover the nation, but they ease the traffic flow in some of the country's most crowded areas They're worth what you have to pay at the toll gate. Put Up Or Shut Up BASEBALL Commissioner Ford Fnck has damped a silence on baseball owners discussing any proposed changes of franchise. "Let O'Malley and Stoncham put up or shut up" Fnck is said to have told a reporter over the telephone. He was referring to the owners of the Brooklyn Dodgers and the New York Giants. The occasion for Fnck's order was the visit of Mayor George Christopher of San Francisco to New York and a meeting he is reported to have held \\ith Horace Stoneham' of the Giants. Stories and rumors about a migration of both the Dodgers and Giants to California became front page news in New York, with a resultant murkiness in the metropolitan baseball picture. No move to another city can be made until next October, but it is now generally believed by baseball miters that the Dodgers will move to Los Angeles. Whether this belief be true : or not, the situation is now one of confusion to fans. It is even beginning to look as though the end of an era in New York- has come for National League ball. But appearances notwithstanding, it is difficult to conceive of the National League abandoning the New York area. It is one that remains a potentially rich source of revenue. Curbing Quacks POSTMASTER General Summerfield said recently that offers of phony 'sure cures" through the mails are more common today than ever before. His postal inspectors are doing their best to curb this abuse of thc mails and in the last 12 months almost 200 cases have been dealt with. The quack cure is one of the most despicable kinds of fraud, it preys upon the hopes of people who are often suffering greatly from disease. It sometimes prevents them from seeking proper medical care that might lead to a real cure. People who will stoop to enrich themselves from the misery of other people deserve very little consideration. Yet the postal authorities can only do so much to keep such crooked schemes within bounds. The cooperation of people who receive such mail is necessary. Reporting "fvre-cure" schemes can put an end lo them quickly. It can protect people who are too gullible, or too desperately hopeful, from unscrupulous promoters seeking an easy way (o make money.

Hightvay Problem ALMOST A YEAR has passed since Congress voted the 27.5-billion-dollar highway program designed to give the country a 41,000-milc network of superhighways. It's a good time to see what's been accomplished. By the height of the summer tourist season only some 200 miles of this nationwide web will have been laid down. But thereafter things are expected to pick up gradually—according to plan. The goal for 1961, four years from now, is 8,000 miles. The remaining four-fifths of the network will be built over an additional 12-year period. Yes; t DAY. CAN '•rfou e>/v/e fJAME OF A 000O, SOAP*?. I HAVE Ifier AK35T DRe^DFUL DISHPAN HANDS.

This erasure of party lines between Republicans and Democrats to create new mixed parties on an even larger scale than usual accounts for some of the trouble President Eisenhower currently is experiencing. To the President's discomfiture, the old familiar coalition between Kepublicans, chiefly from the Midwest, and conservative Southern Democrats still functions in the field of social welfare measures. We had a graphic demonstration of thai recently in the House raid on appropriations for the Department of Health, Education and Welfare, which fiepublican conservatives were able to make with the aid of Southern Democrats. AN ANALYSIS shows a majority of Republicans in the House sided against the Administration in the case of 12 out ot 14 cuts So the old coalition stays hitched on social welfare issues. Formerly this coalition also worked on civil rights measures. Republicans, chiefly from the Midwest, contributed enough votes or influence in the right places to keep civil rights bills sequestered in committee in exchange for Southern support against welfare bills. HOWEVER, this changed in the last session of Congress. A number of Republicans with large Negro constituencies bolted the alliance with Southern Democrats on civil rights. They found it was becoming politically dangerous to play footsie wi(h the Southerners, especially since the Republican party was making an issue of Southern antagonism to civil dales that on welfare measures is the combination on agricultural matters. It was variously labeled the beef-cotton bloc and the heef- corn-cotton bloc. That, however, was shattered last week when Southerners deserted their old Midwest Republican allies to knock most of the props out from under the soil bank program. You'll recall that the soil bank was sponsored in the last Congress by Secretary of Agriculture Ezra Tall Benson, who originally had opposed it, under heavy pressure from GOP political managers who urged it to hold disaffected Middle West farm voles in the 1956 election. Another surprising shift is that of a number of Southern Democrats, especially in districts THERE IS NO intention of debating the last with Mr. Graham. My belief is, considering all things numerically, lhat New York is no more politically corrupt than any other city, has less sinfulness (using vice as a yardstick) than most cities, and most New Yorkers work too hard, think too much and have too many impingements of tension to be wholeheartedly wicked. In many respects, it is a naive city, not a fraction as evil as many smaller cities and towns I could name and spell out. Bo that as it may . .. It is also my belief, once the initial hullabaloo and publicity subside, that the revival will simmer down to a quiet, uneventful occasion. There is no intention of mockery or disrespect when I report (hat New Yoik. at varying tiroes, has become just as excited about the advent of miniature golf and professional basketball. as well, to claim that New York' 1~,"-'~ 'TC.T '"" •"•'"• •"""'"" ua > ooum is a shining, flecklcss city in no AfricD .'. lhat ™ ar auamg hippos were caus- need ot any man's call to prayer !" s wldcs P read damage lo his farm In Zulu- and conviction.

The significance of this, to Washington, is that while it goes on, the Voice of America should not be muffled. It may have been doing an expensive job, it could do a better job—as who couldn't—bul it has a job to do in the battle for men's minds. Take, for instance, a Voice of Moscow broadcast in English fo the United States on May 8. It accused Ihe American press of trying to make out that "Moscow is trying to impose its tyranny on the Middle East." II isn't that way at all, the Moscow announcer, Nikolai Andreyev declared. It's the other way around. first demonslralion of lhe Eisenhower doctrine was to level an undisguised military threat against the national forces of Jordan and the other Abar countries." Then came this mouthful: "Moscow—the Soviet Union," it says, had assured him of their full support in resistance to King Hussein. THE VERY SAME day Maj. Gen. Ali Abu-Nmvwar of Jordan met in Damascus with the Soviet military attache and Lt. •£j£ ParlSinSTt 2L S^l^^ ACCORDING to him. "The Middle East."

"On lhe following day the Soviet military attache gave Abu- Nmwar 100,000 dinars to distribute among Jordanian army officers who opposed the King. "Abu-Nuwwar relurned to Jordan and agreed with An-iVabulsi that lhe laller should press lhe King (o establish diplomatic relations with the Soviet Union. "THE KING refused both proposals on the basis that they would lead to Soviet domination over Jordan." An army coup d'etat was then set. Twice postponed, it finally miscarried when one garrison misunderstood ils orders and started fighting "at 1500 hours (3 p. m.) instead of 0500 hours the nest morning."
