For Premier Guy Mollel had established a postwar record of 16 continuous months in office, giving the French an unaccustomed taste of stable living. In the light of recent. French history, however, it was not widely assumed that this spree of stability would last indefinitely. The French are still the French, which means (hey would rather split a hair than solve a problem. Right now they are enjoying somewhat more than their normal quola of disagreements. Mollet's government foundered on the rock of his demand for higher taxes, budget economies and other adjustments to meet the cost of the war in Algeria and deal with other financial hazards. Whitney Bolton Glancing Sideways Mcrryle Rukcyser Economy Has More Appeal Than Spending THE FRENCH lawmakers are not agreed on how to prosecute this war, on what to do next about France's position at Suez, on whether or not to ratify the new pacts for a common European market and a pool of atomic resources. Being thus divided, they have characteristically chosen not to Iry to compose their differences and hammer out effective policies, but rather to transform their disagreements into roadblocks. So now, even though Mollet stays on as premier while the search for his successor proceeds, the French find themselves handicapped in pushing the Algerian War. The vita] common market treaties are held up. President Rene Coty's impending trip to America is postponed. The country's finances drift slowly into a worse muddle than ever. More often than anything else, taxes provide the stumbler for the French. Their rebellion against taxes is centuries old. They regard them as the prime affront to their cherished individualism. IKE SHIFTING of sides between Ihc two major parties on Federal budget policy resembles Ihe technique of the high school debating (cam, which is expected to be able to argue pro and con on any issue. Politics makes strange bedfellows, and it is bizarre to find the spokesman for the Republican Party — President Eisenhower — carrying the ball for spending, whereas the Democratic Parly, which under the Roosevelt arid Truman leadership had operated under the Hopkins formula of "spend and spend, elect and elect," battling for reduced appropriations. In addition, the conservative Republicans are bucking (he "modern" Republicans. Obviously, (he motivation is for expedient short-term public approval—something akin to a better Trcndex rating. Politicians with their ears to the ground are apparently hearing sounds which indicate (hat at this stage ot the prosperity cycle, prudence and economy in Federal spending, with the hope of a tax cut. has more surefire appeal than prodigal spending. BUT THOSE looking hopefully at the French view this revolt, which in fact is not simply against high taxes .but against necessary levies of all kinds, as a symbol of France's refusal to accept the full responsibilities of nationhood and membership in the family of free nations. France's friends abroad again voice satisfaction that Guy Mollet's regime lasted so long. And they must hope that this break in continuity will not signal z return to the era of short-term governments, but will instead be followed by a tenure even longer than Mollefs. Those who admire the French for their many wonderful qualities cling to the hope that they may still one day be a solid, if not a great force on the side of free men. IN 7 THE circumstances, President Eisenhower was theoretically correct in trying to talk over the heads of' politicians in Congress to (heir real bosses, the voters, in his two TV-radio fireside chats on the budget and especially on recommendations for expenditures for foreign aid. But it seems to me that the President made it needlessly difficult for himself early this year by seeming to shift his fiscal approach in connection with the proposed new budget — the so- called record peacetime budget. Whatever the extenuating cir- cviimslances of cold war and other vicissitudes may have been. President Eisenhower appeared to (he man on the Street >to be modifying his 1952 and 1953 budgetary stance in which he laid emphasis on a fixed determination to cut the cost of government. The jumbo budget symbolically appeared to represent a dilution of Mr. Eisenhower's earlier enthusiasm for reduced Federal spending. Maybe the boom psychology was a factor in a changed emphasis. The difference was further dramatized at the beginning o( the year when in a press conference (he President indicated that the public was demanding many services and deserved them. THAT OFFHAND remark was unfortunate. For. despite (he weakening of the Presidential influence as a curb on public clamor under the New Deal and the Fair Deal under big spending Chief Executives, the traditional role in the While House is to call a halt to logrolling and excessive spending. It is not (he role of the budget maker merely to assemble proposals and put a price tag on them. An authentic budget should represent consolidated thinking about what should be done, what should be postponed, and what should be omitted. If a Chief Executive shrinks from the unpopular role of saying "no" to spendthrift pressure groups, he _muffs an opportunity to serve. Early in his first Administration Mr. Eisenhower, emphasizing points of difference between himself and his New Deal and Fair Deal predecessors.' pointed to the way to put the Federal economic house in order. Mr. Eisenhower opposed the trend toward overcentralization, and advocated returning to the Slates, the localities and to private enterprise (hose activities which they are able and willing to carry out. Peter Edson IT IS HIGH time for Ihe whole matter to be re-studied in strictly economic terms. Certainly the big Federal spending was inconsistent with efforts of the Federal Reserve authorities to fight inflation. Another leak in the anti-inflation dikes conies from the power of unions in collective bargaining to demand increases in labor payments more rapidly than increments in actual productivitv. Mr. Eisenhower on at least three occasions has urged lhat the ceiling on wage increases be the demonstrable improvement in rate of oulput per manhour. But Congress shouldn't be allo ed to get away with shifting blame for excess spending to the Executive Department. Congress has supported all too many "pie in the sky schemes," which impose automatic costs at an ascending scale. The remedy lies in deRating the welfare slate, and thus giving citizens a boost in their spendable income, or take - home pay, through the device of lax reduc- lion, preceded by a curtailment of, overall Federal spending. llilernallonM Ne»i Service.)

Tilt Over Dams Boils Up In New Power Bill CJiange For Better THOUGH THEY have a good deal more real income, higher living standards and are rated larger in frame and stature, Americans today consume just about the same amount of food per person per year as people did around 1900. The content of our diet, however, has changed greatly in that lime. Fifty-odd years ago bread and cereals accounted for 37 per cent of Ihe average calory intake, and starches generally were a diet mainstay. Today the flour-cereal category conies to just 10 per cent of the total per capita consumption. Today Americans eat considerably more beef, eggs, vegetables, citrus fruits and milk. This diet is at once more suitable for body needs and more expensive. And the changes it represents help explain why in recent years the country has built up such enormous grain surpluses. WAS[IINGTON-(NEA)_Advo- cales of the high dam at Hells Canyon on the Snake River between Idaho and Oregon won't give up. They are fighting to have one !>ig public power dam built instead of the Iwo smaller dams which Idaho Power Co. has already started at Brownlce and Oxbow. They have lost every round so far. High-dam forces lost their long batlle against Idaho Power before the Federal Power Commission in 1955. They lost before the Supreme Court this year. Still they go on fighting. Their latest lactics are lo beat the Office of Defense Mobilization over (he head for granting 65 million dollars" worth of fasl lax write-offs to Ihe Idaho company. set back public power development. Idaho Power applied for fast tax wrile-offs on its two proposed dams in 1953. At lhat time Office of Defense Mobilization was Irying to increase U.S. power production above the 75 million kilo- wait capacity by 1958. There is plenty that can be said in favor of the high dam for full development o[ the Snake River resources. There is plenty more that can be said against all 913 of the private power expansion tax incentives. Another Phony REPORT HAS IT lhat the Communists are about to float another "peace appeal'' with the aim of building up a worldwide head of steam for an immediate ban on nuclear weapons. Years ago they pulled a similar propaganda stunt called the Stockholm Peace Appeal. Millions of people all over the world allowed their earnest wish for peace to blind them lo Ihe fraudulent aspect of the Kremlin's project. Many Americans swallowed the enticing pill. Let's hope the new appeal, if it comes off as reported, will get the realistic treatment it deserves this time. Every sane person everywhere wants peace and genuine disarmament. But it has to be had under conditions assuring Ihe security of free men. When the Russians are ready to approve those conditions, they won't need to circulate appeals drawing upon the world's heartfelt wish for peace. SENATORS Estes Kefauver and Joseph C. O'Mahoney of the Senate Judiciary Monopoly subcommittee and public power advocates in general are ; trying to make this into another Dixon- Yalcs scandal. Their inferences arc lhat au- Ihorizing Idaho Power ib build (he two low dams and then giving them fast lax write-offs was ol! part of a conspiracy lo boost the private power monopoly and THE IDAHO power applications came within Ihis expansion goal. So as soon as Federal Power Commission and Ihe Supreme Court cleared Ihc legal obstacles. ODM authorized the tax incentives. It had no legal grounds for doing anything else. What Idaho Power gets out of Ihis is proportionately jusl what 913 olher private power company expansions will have received between 1951 and 1961 in accelerated tax amorlizalion allowances. The amount of these write-olfs is estimated at around four billion dollars, or 61 per cent of their six and a half billion dollar toial cost. The first 912 of Ihcse projects were approved wilhoul objection from anyone because its two low dams are in conflict with the Hells Canyon public power project. History From The Tunes Files PRIVATE power industry spokesmen have been boasting— or complaining—that they pair! full taxes on all their facilities. Yet since 1951 they have been receiving these special lax benefits. What Ihey really amount to are five-year, interest-free government loans. As new ODM Director Gordon Gray explained it to the Kefaiiv- cr subcommittee in Ihe Idaho Power case: "The company will save inlcr- csl on Ihe tax payments, which amounts il might otherwise have lo borrow. The government pays interest on the money it has lo borrow In make tip for (he tax deferment. But slarling wilh the sixth year, Ihe government gels increased tax revenue because smaller lax deductions will be available to the company. And at the end of the useful life of the two facilities. Ihe government will have received the deferred taxes." TEN YEARS AGO May 28. 1917 W. Russell Shaner elected president of Cumberland Typographical Local 2«, AFL. Death of Mrs. Virgil G.

Hells Canyon backers think it lias a chance. If it should sneak through, it would face a probable presidential veto. And if that obstacle could be overridden, heavy damages would have lo be paid Idaho Power Co., which has already starled construction at Brownlce. Still the Hells Canyon high- dam forces keep fighting. Barbs what they earn what Smart people get earn and wise ones they gel.

"You will lose sales lo Ihem by using a plastic roof which has no shade lhat can be drawn between people in the car and harsh light." The manufacturer, heedless, put out the car and it lasted one year only. Not enough people bought them. Some British cars have roof panels thai can be pushed back lo let in direct light and air. but they also can be closed when the glare becomes too much for the human eye.

Vs.. ari officer with a fine combat and slaff record, still has on its rolls 26 veterans from tho World War II. during which il was in action 443 days and took more than 100,000 prisoners. The division has been streamlined down from a peak of 17,500 men to about 13,000. Jts three regiments, under the new pen- lomic organizalion, have been succeeded by five heavily supported batlle groups. Some of the oldlimers wept openly a lew months ago during a colorful ceremony at which the colors of Ihc division's Ihree famous o!d rcgiments-lhe !Sth, 18th, and 26th—were struck, perhaps forever. Those regiments had fought ail the way from Algiers to the Elbe, and 43,74;) men had served under them. Half had been wounded. 4,325 had died.

Washington Scene WASHINGTON—Let us consider today the white cotton shirt that never needs to be washed. Get some grime around the collar or spill some gravy down the front and you merely toss it into (lie (rash, like a paper handkerchief. Then you slip into a new one because these shirts—if they ever come lo pass—will cost about the same as having present shirts washed and ironed. This incipient bad news for laundrymen will be contained next month in the report to Congress from the Commission on Increased Industrial Use of Agricultural Products. Tile commissioners include arnund 100 leading scientists, industrialists, and farm experts who've been looking for new uses for farm produce. ONE OF THE latter reports that a number of these disposable shirts already nave been produced in a pilot plant and that they are beauties — pure, glistening white and comfortable to the skin. The trick in lowering the cost of shirts is in skipping Ihe weaving process, which is costly. The experts chop the cotton into small pieces, stir it well with water and adhesive, and dry the resultant EDO in sheets of non- woven cloth. The commissioners said in an interim report that industry is actively at work on the idea and that they see the day when such felted fabrics of cotton will be used widely in products ranging from tarpaulins to living-room draperies. This is 3 relatively new development; it is known as jellied paint and has been used principally by. amateur interior decorators who were tired of redoing ceilings and getting paint in their hair. Jellied paint doesn't drip. Vegetable oils are what makes Ihe new paint thick. IT WAS POINTED out by Ihe commissioners that a new fabric, soft like cashmere, now is being made from corn protein under a process developed by the Agriculture Deparlment. Corn, they said, should be useful in making plastic films and fibers. Wheat is suitable for wallboard. Wheat gluten, they conlinued. can be turned into an excellent weed-killing compound. All these items sound good, but what 1 want is one of those no-wash shirts. I'd like to lake it off some night while my bride is watching and set a match to it. <l r niled Feature Syndicate, I ne .j WASHINGTON' - Senalor Hichard L N'cuberger new all the way back to his native Oregon a short time ago to defend President Eisenhower's budget. The Demev cratic Solon expected to shock Republicans by his action, and he did. But the shock did not take quite the direction he anticipated. If (here is one thing no one ever accused the extremely-liberal Ncuberger of being, it is an Eisenhower defender. He has made cracks about Ihe President that even the Democratic Digest wouldn't reprint. The Icftish lawmaker never expected lo win the love of the GOP. but he thought his night across the continent to back up the parly's leader might make some of the more rabid Eisenhower roo. Ihink less harshly of him. He had particu.. hopes that he would soflcn Ernest G. Swigcrt president of (he National Association of Manufacturers, who is also a fellow Port- lander. Swigert and the NAM contributed generously to Ihe Republican campaign fund to elect Eisenhower. Suburbs THE GENTLEMEN also were fascinated by the idea of making shimmering evening gowns from lard. They had such a costume modeled at the Agriculture Department a while back with a blonde poured inside of it. My informant said it was a beautiful dress, though he did believe the contents enhanced the effect. The trouble with animal fats, according to the commissioners, is that we don't use nearly as much of them as we used to. They're piling up. So if ladies would wear dresses made mostly of laid, that would help. Lard, in any event, can be treated with acids and out come plaslics. They can be spun and woven into cloth like other synthetic fabrics. HAVING pointed out lhat synthetic detergents have more than cut in half the use of inedible fats in soaps, the experts came up wilh a counterattack. They'd make from sugar, detergents for washing hands, clothes nd dishes. They said sugar is relatively cheap, chemically pure and hence is especially attractive as a foundation for a wide variety of uses, such as soap substitutes and bug killers. The specialists also said they expected a big demand for soybean, cottonseed and pcanul oil from the makers of no-drip house paint. ONE STRIKING phenomenon of post-war America is Ihe almost fantastic growlh of suburbs in many metropolitan areas. This growth is of concern not only to those who live in such areas, but to all Americans, since the suburbs are a part of the changing pattern of national life. Partly because they have been built in such a hurry to meet the great need for housing that came oui of the war years, many of the suburbs lack the benefits of overall planning. Relatively few- have been erected with an eye to beauty as well as lo utility. Though there are exceptions, the unhappy fact is that vast suburban areas are an indiscriminate spreading of new houses without adequate provision for those things thai transforms a mere collection of houses into a gracious residential area. It is too late to change what has already been done, it is not too late to incorporate vision and a feeling for beauty into the planning of suburbs yet lo come. A measure of what might be done is to be seen in Vallingby. th» "satellite city" of Stockholm. Sweden. This unusual suburb is described in the April issue of . "chilcctural Record. "By beautiful sample." says the writer, "it shows how the suburbs which increasingly en- vslop the world's cities can be well planned, park-like, viable centers." He adds: "Here, where cows grazed and corn grew five short years ago. (here is a city of 23.000 in which every road, every building location, every need of the inhabitant was carefully planned before first ground was broken." Similar things have been done in this country, but unfortunately (hey are exceptions (o the rule. Tr- prevent new suburbs from becoming merely the slums of 20 or 30 years hence, much more of such careful, ground-up planning is called for. (Associated Treat) AFTER MAKING his pitch for Ihe President's budget. Senator Neiibcrger waited to receive congratulations from Oregon Republicans. He waited very much in vain. He inquired why he hadn't heard from Swigcrt. and was informed Ihe NAM president had gone to Syracuse, N. Y., to make a speech. "Ah. well." said Neubcrger, philosophically. "He will undoubtedly read about my defense ot his leader and say something about me there!" His prediction came true. The NAM head did indeed say something about him in Syracuse. It wasn't favorable. He blasted him. BUDGETARIAN1SM has everything running backward. A Stalwart son of the GOP. and a great Eisenhower booster, is Rep. Thor C. Tollcfson. of Washington. The oiher day he received a package from ona of his slaunchcst Republican supporters, J. i.. Redench, of 13021 Lake City Blvd.. Aacoma, Wash.
