FAMILIAR STATEMENTS Postwar American history is repeating itself, the January report of the Navy Industrial association points out in its leading article. Popular revulsion from everything connected with war is as strong today as after the country's other major conflicts, the author of this article finds. And the discovery brings him no comfort. So he makes statements that are as familiar as the situation he attacks. They have been spoken to deaf ears by the army and navy in the years between. Press and public have discovered their truth in time of conflict and repeated them in chorus. But now the deafness seems to be returning. Perhaps, then, it is well to read these familiar statements in the light of the present circumstances. The Navy Industrial association's writer has stated them well. They are in part as follows: "Foreign powers have long been intense students of American history. They know that we are an outspoken, unregimented people, basically not interested in conquest or imperialism. They know that ail we want, usually, is to be left to ourselves so that we can work on the problem of raising our Sigh living standards higher. "They know that once the shooting stops Americans regard a war as ended and that a reaction takes place against all, things militaristic. They know that in years of peace we do sule solution of tne wage-price di- not prepare for war because we do not want war, we'do not lemma lms bce " teken away from even like to think about war. They know that a great number of Americans are going to be against military training and conscription simply because they regard war and killing as fundamentally wrong. "They know that it is extremely easy to turn American public opinion against the military and naval systems, although Americans will always be sentimental about individual heroes. They know that American people have sunk more American ships than any enemy. In the wars of 1861-65 and in World Wars I and II, the United States did not get there 'first with the most.' We got there last—with the most. "Science has set the tempo of a.possible third World War and it is perfectly obvious that we cannot defend this nation by getting there last with the most'—we have to be there first With the best." . The obvious flaw in all this, of course, is the failure to give any consideration to the United Nations Organization. But uu.,...™,^ -„„ a » a*-.. the omission-does not necessarily imply an absence of faith i exploratory talks at Washington. He or a proposal of an armed and suspicious isolationism.

KING (Continued) Freedom cannot exist in Am- jcrica nor elsewhere, except as the •reward, for personal integrity and fthere is no integrity apart from God. Our Constitutional Founders .realized the futility of legislating jVlrtue and of doling freedom as /Washington uttered this epochal ambition, "Let us raise a standard ,to which the wise and honest can jrepair; the event is in the hand 'of God." Those who charted our course had no better assurance that sub- pequent generations would repair 'to the noble standard of independence than the unequivocal j-oaii- zatifn that infidelity nnd idolatry (ever deprive man of his cherished liberty. But neither America nor jthe world has profited t>y fallen' empires laid waste by their own Iniquity. We have yielded to the! opium of ease and an illusive! pecurity to become stupefied to •the realities of existence. This paralysis may be encouraged externally but "the fault, tleaii (Brutus, is not in our stars, bud in ourselves that we are umler-i SUngs." Truth's eternal war against' falsehood is as relentlessly exacting today as it was when Tom Paine wrote upon the drumhead* of the Revolution: "These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, Shrink from the service of their country; but ho thai. stands it now, deserves I lie love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is ^ot easily conquered. . . ." The call today is imperative for giants like Moses, Jesus, Peter, Paul and Lincoln who hecamti *fJanie in their zeal for human ^mancipation. Home, church ami State, like the nest of the fledgling bird and the wings of a lovinjl mother, have no more exalted - mission on earth than to nurture thp §eeds of righteousness that thd tiny acorn ruay grow into tho jtUghty oak.

The temporal church, like the paternalistic government, is a pitiful disrespected sham today to the icxtent that it exchanges the wings .of spiritual liberation for the organized manacles of Mammon. IV: jsins are not single handed. Tolal- itauian conspiracies between church and state are not novel. Jesus, Paul, Peter, Luther. Savonavolla and Ann Hutchinson were their victims. Four hundred years ago, the King and archbishop of Eng- Janrt arranged ihat Ihe one .should 'pilelory dissidents who failed t< attend church to hear that, infractions of Hie monarch's decrees assured their eternal scorching. Modern despotism effects a more humane garb. Moscow's pulpit and press in America identifies Christian salvation with a politically -regimented bread-basket which Jesus was satisfied to fill with the remnant of loaves and fishes were blessed as the Manna of a new spiritual order. He demonstrated that man does not live by bread alone.

Lewis's friends and aides are feeling their oats since the return of the United Mine Workers to the Amerimn Federation ol' Labor nnd his election to a seat in its inner councils. The current issue of the United Construction Workers News, the publication of District 50, carries the photographs of Mr. Lewis and Abraham Lincoln .side by side in a box. Both were born on February 12. The general caption says, "In Commemoration—The Birth Date of Two Great Emancipators." Beneath the two pictures appear these cut-lines: "Emancipator of the Slave?;' and "Emancipator ol All American Labor." Many observers of the labor scene, including members of con- HTCSS, havo speculated on whether the rcaffiliation of the U. M. W. with the A. F. of L. presaged industrial peace ~>r warfare. Here is the possibility signifaotn editorial comment by A. D. Lewis, brother of John L. and president of District 50: "The affiliation of the United Mine Workers of .America will make the American Federation ot Labor the outstanding labor movement of the world. It will also provide opportunities for labor to acquire better wages, working conditions and hours of work." IirHollywood NARROW—The appointment of this central board of economic die- tutors was essential, in President Truman's opinion, because of the conflicting and compartmentalized manner in which Jiis various lower- level aides were handling the problem. Ea3h saw the picture from his own narrow viewpoint and did not try to grasp the whole panorama. Clinton P. Anderson, secretary of agriculture, fell that it was his rcs- ponsoikility to provide food. He risked a six cent a pound increase lor butter l,o step up production. He was willing uo hike the cost of meat to end the strike. Sugar will go up a hall-cent a pound because he had to appease hard-bargaining Cuban growers. SCRAMBLED—Mr. Snyder lifted restrictions on home building, although the shortage of materials forced him to invoke them again. He is agreeable to an increase of $4 a ton for steel, possibly more, to settle that dispute. Economic Stabili- ser John C. Collett recently told an off-ihe-record conference of labor U-aders thai he favored their demand for a ninety cent an hour minimum in brick industry. Reason is the need for additional production. Labor Secretary Schwellenbach, working in his separate star and .seeking to .satisfy his customers, has plumped for more money for em- ployes. Looking over this scrambled scene, tho distressed and puzzled Mr. Truman ilecidcd that he had carried the idea of delegating problems to the responsible officials a bit too far. So lie ''ailed on Messrs. Byrnes, Vinson and Snyder to pull something out of the politico-economic hat. EXTENSION -The normal consumer will not i8el the effect of the increased with the cost of basic exception of materials food and clothing. He may pay out more cash for rent, for transportation, for heavy yoods and for services, for the .reaction will be widespread. But he will feel it only indirectly, and not protest too violently. The program for offsetting serious boosts in the kitchen budget contemplates retention and possibly an expansion of food subsidies, al- thpugh it had been planned to let them expire. Tbuy now amount to about $1,800,000,000 annually, but the expenditure of'that amount hay jleased some growers while keeping .he consumers contented.. Some administration aclviseis advocate the extension of this fpim pf help ;o ather procvuots, es- Jqw-cosfc homes, essential goojfJs and clothing. By ERSklNIi JOHNSON NEA Staff Correspondent HOLLY WOOD— For three, months, Rufus Blair, the Paramount press agent, has been touring the country, bra tins drums for "The Lost Weekend" and an Academy award for Ray Millancl. Other day he returned- to Hollywood, convinced that every man, woman and child knew about the picture. Blair was relaxing smugly in his office over a top well done when his secretary ushered in the managing editor of a big eastern newspaper, visiting Hollywood with his wife and family. After a few minutes of small talk, the editor asked: "Tell me, Mr. Blair, what picture do you think will win • the Academy award this year?" Blair looked astounded, then fairly bellowed, "Why, 'The Lost Weekend,' of course." The editor, unimpressed, then asked, rather blankly: "Well, tell me, who is the star of this picture?" Rufus Blair, they tell us, fled from his office and hasn't been seen since. * * £ Thanks to secretaries at Paramount, Douglas Dick is playing the prize role of Sam, the returned soldier, in the film version of the Lillian Hellman play, "The Seaching Wind." Producer Hal Wallis ran tests of four candidates and asked the girls to vote. They voted Dick into the job with such comments as: "Thats fore me." "I'll buy that dream." "Will go over with all ages." "Loads of personality and charm." "Wonderful personality." Dick rails from Versaile, Kentucky, where his father is an insurance man. He was a quartermaster, third class, in the navy, saw sub patrol duty off Florida, then transferred to carrier pilot training. When the war ended he had 50 hours in the air. His only acting experience was in Little Theather production while going to the University of Arizona. LONG-RANGE POVERTY One of our favorite Oscar Levant stories concerns the time he was sitting with Ira Gershwin in the Brown Derby. Layant was complaining about his sad financial condition. He gave a brilliant picture of his penury. He was down and out, didn't have a cent and was practically walking on his socks Gershwin was aghast at Oscar's pitiful state and said, us he readied for his wallet: "Good heavens, Oscar, how long can you continue 'like this?" "Well," replied Levant, "roughly, I'd say about 10 years."

This was the flooding of the great Wicringer- meer farm colony of 48,000 acres by dynamiting t h r —•————r. dykes and letting OEWITL MACKENZIE Zuider Zee. Three villages and 512 farms were wiped out. Tlie Gonrans did this without military reason but solely as an act of hate on April 17, 1945, just before their surrender. But you can't beat the Dutch that way. Today, only ten months after the flooding, the great electric pumps of the development have drained the land, and the farmers already arc starting to plow for the 194G cro,j. To bo sure, the .snug houses and barns have been de- destroyed and the farmers with their families live miles away in surrounding towns, but the land hasn't been ruined because, forsooth, the waters of the Zuider Zee aren't salt. The colony was brand new, for the land was reclaimed from the sea only 15 years ago. The farmers and their wives were youthful folk just starting out, in life. However, it is a characteristic of the Dutch to smile through their tears. There's the pretty young housewife standing on a tiny island in the flood with a basket of eggs on her arm, looking as though she is afraid she will gee her feet wet. There's a fat and perplexed pig on another island that's just big enough to hold it. And a contended farmer is catching fish from the roof of his barn. The government is paying for the losses sustained by the young couples and will replace their houses and barns. When the war broke out there were attached to this model colony some 300 young German Jewish men and women who were studying the system for use in colonizing work in Palestine. All these were taken away to Germany. Only a aoui, 20 have returned and it is reported here that all the rest are deaa. -O /" They Cried * .—.1—Ccpyria'if. 1946/NIA Service, (ne.- COMPLICATED OR SIMPLE? ST. LOUIS, Feb. 12.-—(/P)—James P.

Ijntct Andrew Stttcn say*! "I wnnt fan to temrmbtr, Nnnn, tlint whnierrr I have done, I hnve done for Jenny." * XII * .AFTER Andrew Stites went off • to bed, I had some notion of waiting for Fletch; but when I heard the clock in the town striking 12, I decided not to sit iUp any longer. As I climbed the 'stairs to my room, the incongru- fous thought, "And the morning .and the evening were the • first 'day" went through my head. i I am not one to think in scrip- 'ture texts, and I don't know why 11 did then. And yet that whole [day had seemed to be something set apart, a time for all the seething, turbulent under-cover emo- Hions to rush to the surface, and 11 had the feeling that it was only the beginning. A train went through the valley, its whistle shrieking wildly, and it seemed ito me to fill the quiet house with I its banshee wall, and the walls I seemed to echo. Or was it a similar, wild, uncontrolled something Jin the house answering whatever [it was that lay in the valley? I I couldn't sleep; if anything, it was hotter than it had been all day and now to the weird scream- 'ing of the -whistles in the valley iwas added the dull rumble of distant thunder, the kind that Fletch when he was small had in- i sisted was the rumbling of the t«n | pins of Rip Van Winkle's little nnen; and as I lay there stretched I taut on my bed, I thought indeed ,' it might be. There was something I about it, like the sounds in the I valley, that was unnatural. i I heard a car scattering gravel I on the drive and a car door slam and I wondered whether it was ! Fletch or Phillipa. I hadn't long to wait to find out, for the steps on the stairs were Fletch's. There were too many years that I had lain awake listening for them not to know his particular tread on the stair. But his steps didn't turn upward to the third floor as they should. I next heard a rap on the door across the hall and his soft whisper, "Dru." Then there were two voices whispering and silence. * * * I DIDN'T intend to fall asleep. That's one of the meanest tricks old age plays on you. You can't sleep when you intend to and you fall asleep when you don't wzut to. It was the closing of a window that woke me and as I opened my eyes, I didn't know for an instant whether it was wraith or human that I saw. But it was only Betsy in her white dress. I asked the inevitable question of every one wakened from sleep, "Is that you, Eefsy?" She said, "Yes, Nam. I came in to close your windows. It's storming." The last statement was superfluous for at that moment I think all heaven and earth opened up. I supposed it was that which made Betsy seem so breathless, "What time is it?" I asked. "Something after one," she answered. "Aren't you home early?" Her voice faltered a little, "I was tired. I wauled to come home." Perhaps it should have seemed strange to me that young, gay, fun-loving Betsy should be tired and ready to come home at one .when knowing Ann and Fred Quillman and their cra/.y-kind of parties, I hadn't expected her before five; but her answer just seemed to At in with all of that emotion-torn day. The silver-steel lightning was now clawing at the highest arch of the sky, and the thunder was a continuous frustrated bellowing, to which the whole; house seemed to reverber- ate. I lay there 6ft mjr feed, watching the storm, hatching Betsy with her face pressed close to my window looking out over* the rock gardens. * * * AS the storm continued to rage' -"• some of the inner Stress which! I had been feeling seemed to les-, pen, and I wondered if it Were the same with the rest of my, family; if the fury of the elements were making the fury of their emotions seem puny and' worthless. At that instant there wus a mounting crescendo o£ J thunder and then a crash of lightning that turned the whole world outside my window into a vast shell of fire. | "Dear God!" I cried.- "Betsy, come away from that window!" I had taught Both children, just as I had taught my Miss Jenny, to bo unafraid of storms, to admire the beauty of the lightning, to hear the music o£ the thunder, but! this was too much. "That lightning struck somewhere near," Betsy said shakily,' and stooping to lay her facei against mine for a moment, she went on to her own room. It was several minutes before I realized that the moisture on her cheek' could not have been caused byi the rain. The window, was closc'd.' The storm continued for a! while after that and then rumbled! off somewhere beyond the hori-' zon. I got up and opened my windows; the air was cool and sweet and everything was quiet. Somehow 1 felt akin (to the earth; as; though I too had been swept by a storm, which had held me trembling, and now wasi left to rest. I ncard Betsy opening her window and in other parts of the house I could hear windows being opened to the cool breezes and I wondered if the rest of my family felt the! same way.-I went back to bed and to immediate deep, peaceful sleep, (To Be Continued)' Peter Edson's Column. HOUSING CRISIS DIDN'T COME OVERNIGHT By PETER F.DSON NBA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON.—(NEA)—Big objective of new Housing Expediter Wilson W. Wyatt, Jr., is to "Build as many houses as possible, as fast as possible, to rent for as low a price as possible." "It isn't going to be done," he says, "by business as usual, building as usual, or labor as usual. I'What is not generally appreciated," Wyatt declared on his first appearance before the house banking committee, which is considering new housing legislation, "is that this housing ..shortage did not come up overnight." , Today's housing shortage began back in thn 20's, when more new families came into being than new houses to .shelter them, Wyatt points out. In 1925 and '26, building prices reached their peak. They got so high people practically stopped building houses. There can be a recurrence of that situation," says Wyatt, "so people shouldn't be frightened out of housing today." All through .the depression 1930's, with from eight to ten million people unemployed, there was little lew housing built. Over a million families lived doubled-up with relatives. In 1940 there were a million marriages, but onlv 700,000 new housing mits. The 300,000 unit shortages was typical of the past 20-year period. In five years , of war, during which the population increased eight million, little new permanent housing was built. People had the money to pay for it, but the materials weren't available. So they continued to live douBlcd-up or in government-built temporary housing. SHORTAGE OF 2,500,090 FORESEEN IN '46 Today five million discharged veterans have been piled in, and by the end of 194« it will be ten million. Housing authorities estimate a minimum shortage of two and a half million houses by the end of 1946, three million by the end of 1947, then 600,000 more every year after that. It I.s to clean up this thai, Expediter Wyatt is bringing forth his new program to got housing construction started again. He will have four major approaches. First will be to get materials flowing .so that a house won't have to be stopped once it's started. Increased production of substitutes and new materials will be encouraged. Mass production techniques •learned during the war will have to be used. Second will be the labor problem. There is no shortage of construction workers today. But as materials -begin to flow, there will be a labor shortage. Apprentice training will have to begin immediately. TRANSPORTATION IS BIG PROBLEM Third, every available bit of shelter will have to be used. Temporary war housing will have to be used. Where remote from urban • centers, -.rnnsportation lines will have to bo extended to them. Fourth, every community will have to work out a local program of its own. Building codes, which are wild but sacred cows, will havo to be broken where they interfere. Home sharing will have to be continued and encouraged. Veterans should be given first call on any vacancies. More rental housing will have to ho tuilt. More materials will have to be channeled into low-rent housing projects. HouKiiiv, priority, subsidy and price cmi.irol problems arc particularly ticklish. Authority for these con-: l.rols will expire June 30 and will' have to be continued if the housing job i.s to be dono in an orderly manner. All these emergency measures tie- in, says Wyatt, and they have to be balanced in relation to cath other. It is a two-year job at the least. It will cost money.
