TRUMAN A'rnericari businessmen want sincerely lo help in ; the "inflationary cloud now hanging over us.' y Will continue to do all in their power. But it must be tffemembered they bejran months ago \vlien the do ml was fji mere speck on the horix.on to call for cooperation from government and labor to avert what President Truman rilow sees as almost inevitable. The President's casual assignment of the job now solely as "a pressing task of businessmen" invites some questions to which the answers are obvious: How can businessmen "help by careful planning" when no prudent businessman can plan safely without any knowledge of what his wage, material and other costs niay be 2-1 hours ahead? Why not put the great influence of the Administration behind labor legislation to remove the major uncertainties in present day costs? Assuming that successful and prudent businessmen can tolerate "wasteful methods and practices," would it not b'e a salutary example if government "eliminated" such methods and practices in the federal establishments, attempted to live within its income, and pared excessive expenditures by pruning- away useless jobs and duplicate activities in government agencies? ,. . ,, Where is the finance for "expanding facilities coming from when potential investment funds are siphoned at the source by excessive fedora! tax levies? Mr. rTuman could contribute here by advocating rather than opposing the reduction for those whose investments mean expanding production. , . „ How can business increase, productivity when control ol its' basic material and processes is at the mercy of laboi bosses armed wiOi industry-wide, bargaining powers and closed-shop monopolies?" when you want to go homes at In Hollywood V BY KRSKINE JOHNSON NBA Staff C«rrcs|MMMlcni (Johnson (in Kl'DN Monday thru Friday, 2 p. m.)

P. of Columbus. Ohio. "Why did n't he answer criticism by Senators Halleck. or even Henry Wallace?" Answer: The principal reason, perhaps, is that the able Mr. Taft has been the Senate's most aggressive and effective- opposition in the field of domestic affairs. He led in whipping the labor and tax bills into such shape that it will embarrass the White House, whether Mr. Truman signs them or not. As a result of his legislative achievements, the Ohioan has come to exercise great influence over his colleagues. Secondly, Mr. Taft has not been too enthusiastic over the so-called bipartisan" foreign policy, and he is slowly persuading the Republican majority to scan Truman-Marshall proposals more analytically and objectively. His influence in this realm will become more manifest when the Administration, perhaps at a special session in the fall, unveils its program for an elaborate, long-range nnd costly. anti-Communism crusade. and columns Is prepared for him. and he tri£s to skim through it before he retires at night. A Chief Executive who did not keep in touch with newspaper reports and comments, inasmuch as they reflect the activities and reactions of the American people, would be operating in the: dark. FAN—Yes. I believe that columns and editorials to affect the Chief Executive's jucgemeni$ and 'deci- si6ns; especially 'Mr. Truman's, who does not regard himself as cm* riicient or omnipotent. In my twen- ty-folir years at' Washington.

Readers' questions on National affairs are discussed and answered are invited to send questions direct each week in this column. Readers to Ray Tucker. G308 Hillcrest PI.- !hevy Chase. Md. PESTIFEROUS—I do not take any stock in shoot-from-the-hip conclusions that Mr. Truman, in singling out the Cincinnati man for rebuttal, sought to enhance his prestige, and thus better his chances for the G.O.P. nomination next yenr. That deduction is based on the Democrats' reported belief that Mr. Taft would be the easiest Republican to defeat. This verbal duel will be completely forgotten by the lime of next next June's convention at Philadelphia. Moreover, the G.O.P. is determined not to let the enemy pick their candidate in 1948. as some contend they did in 1940 and 1944. Lastly, and it must be remembered that Messrs. Truman and Taft were none too friendly when they served together in the Senate. The latter can be a pestiferous person in a political wranisle. Ho docs not indulge in the usual senatorial courtesies. He speaks his mind bluntly, and he resorts to abrupt forceful language. PRESIDENTIAL—"If you were picking the 1948 Republican, presidential ticket now," queries J, R.

QUICKIES By Ken Reynolds A few days ago I came to the defense of Larry Parks, who hasn't worked In a movie since lav. December. 1 said he should he given a good comedy. New ] hear that Columbia Stiulio may star him in a series of hard* lioilcd detective roles, a la Dick Vowi-11. I think this is a horrible mistake. I hope Larry refuses to play the- roles. He should be starred in romantic comedie*. not in a chcnp ci ime-busl'pr series. Willy Wilder will introduce a new film technique in a murder mystery. Thr- entire story will be told in closi-ups of witnesses at a murder I rial. A'; the witnesses tell the story, UK- action takes place in the upper nu'ht-hancl corner of the screen. The only dialogue comes from the witnesses. President, and Governor Earl Warren of California for the No. 2 spot. The combination of two admittedly competent Governors rrom East and 1 West, with a greater appeal to RCO-'J graphical, economic and industrial interests than most, .synthetic tickets possess, might encttole them to capture the necessary number of states for victory. POSSIBILITIES—I am not dismissing .such, possibilities as Senators Taft and Vnndenburg, Harold, E. Stasseu of Minnesota, or Senator Leverett Saltonstall of Massachusetts, for first or second place, but the men I have mentioned previously seem to be in (lie spotlight today. Incidentally. I do not believe that either Senator Taft or Vandenburn would play second fiddle if they failed in any attempt to win the assignment of leading the Republican orchestra. "What makes you think Junior is getting careless with the archery set we got for him with a News Want Ad?" 'Teen-Age Children Need Summer Jobs AUSTIN—(.T 1 )—Suitable employment for large numbers of 'teenage school children is needed during the summer months, the state, child labor division has announced. Under present state laws minors mny be employed for eight hours a day, 48 hours a week, in any business except factories, mills, workshops, laundries, or any place, where explosives are used. No employment certificates are needed for minors during the school vacation period June 1 to Sept. 1. Healthy citizens constitute our greatest national resource. In time of as in time of \\ar our ultimate strength steins from the vigor of our people. — President TRUMAN—As to the Democrats, President Truman, is a certain nominee. Talk lias not yet crystallized on a running-mate for him. although many prominent Democrats think their greatest asset for second place is Secretary-General George Catlett Marshall. I don't believe that he would take it. He is not a young man and, after several years of battling with "Joe" Stalin, he will probably want to retire to his rose gardens and magnolias in Leesburg, Virginia. COLUMNISTS—Question from R. L. M. of Johnstown. Pa: "I am interested in knowing what columnists President Truman reads regularly and if. in your opinion, his judge- ment and decisions are influenced by any of their opinions and ideas?" Answer: I am told that President Truman does not have the time to read all the" columnists, ' or any great number of them. But, like all high officials at Washington. ti daily digest of news, editorials MARSHALL POLICY By Upton Close The Truman administration may be yielding to conservative pressure, or is it the influence of George C. Marshall? Bits of evidence in the ; news may possibly add up to something signifirant. The' "resignation" of Spruille Braden for instance. Even if Braden's departure from the State Department had not been planned by his superior, it would still be good newis. Braden being the befuddled underling of the radical left wing and' a trouble maker in our Latin American relations. But Braden's exit was planned. Just ten days before it happened Secretary of State Marshall promised some Congressmen to get ridi : 'of the pinko, "in about ten days". And if Marshall did compromise with Bradenites by also dropping the Department, the leading opposite George Messer- ambassador to the Argentine- this was done only after we had"- stood with Argentine diplo- ancj, sung a requiem over the himself unpopular with a good many young intellectuals and some professors, as well as with certain fabulously wealthy Harvard endowers, by declaring that "governments, political parties or groups which seem to perpetrate human misery in order to profi.t therefrom, politically or otherwise, will encounter the opposition of the United States." Meaning that we now openly recognize the barbed wire which the Soviets have strung between us and themselves. In the same address the Secretary of State said. "I would be neither fitting nor efficacious for this government to undertake to draw up unilaterally a program destined to place Europe on its feet economic' ally. This is the business of the Europeans." It certainly is not the voice of the New Deal which tells us Europeans may look after their own business. Marshall declared the people of Europe must get factories going arshall also promised the Con- | duce quickly so they can turn out goods to be traded to farmers for pro- interviewers he would the Reds out of tin- State ' "tarshall is no poli- ( lker—and therefore .^ ,.,.-„ astute politician.

S. supported WPA. There's something distinctly more American about this voice. More and more, it looks as if t j le new trend in the administra- t i on m ay be a Marshall' Policy. However, Truman must be coming along, too: he has thumbed his nose at Henry 'Agafti Wallace, whp has returned the compliment; ana de last week. Tr«m.ftn's Party committed the once-unpardonable sin of shunning the Roose- velts. Jimmy Roosevelt, chairman of the important California Democratic Committee, had joined Wallace in criticizing administration polices. Maybe Truman.'or some of his Missouri advisers were sick of the Roosevelts. anyway. When California's Jackson Day dinner came around with Jimmy to preside and Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt to speak. Gael Sullivan and Mtssourian John Snyder both cancelled their reservations. Sullivan is executive director of the Democratic National Committee and the Secretary of the Treasury is a close personal friend of Truman's. Sullivan arrived on -the scene, but got a telegram from the White House and. though he was slated to keynote the traditional lovefest. he took a plane and went. This public scorning of the once- sacred name is packed with significance. Times truly are changing. It must have deeply offended some of the powerful fanatical left wing backers of the old New Deal, whose grandsons will cherish the name of Roosevelt to the tenth generation. Some of them doubtless will run to Dewey or Stassen for comfort. But I thirtk it sane politics on Truman's side and I hope it signifies that the pinks and one- worlders and squanderers and do- gooders are by way of being washed up and the Democratic Party restored to its ancient integrity and conservatism. , Tret's watch California to see if Jimmy Roosevelt regains- chairman or the state' Deniocratic machine. Common Ground By B. C. HOILE8 Income Tax Reductions Political Not Economical or Moral The Associated Press reports that (he Senate and House conferees have agreed on certain income tax reductions. They would reduce HIP income tax by 30 per cent for persons whose incomes after exemptions nnd deductions are 51000 a year <ir less; 30 to 20 percent on nel in- jomes between $1000 and approximately $1400; 20 per cent between $1400 and $79,700; 15 percent reduction on all incomes between $79,7110 and $302,000; and 10'.4 pel- cent on all above '$302,400. They did not f;ive the reductions where they are most needed. If we ar» to have a continuously increasing standard of living we must take off. the discriminatory;' taxes of those with big incomes. The reason is that most of. the large incomes are reinvested in furnishing tools. It is a purely dem- i *'f?'<V materialistic, wicked, uneconomical tax reduction. It is in harmony with no impersonal ruW or conduct. It is a government oS men rather than a government ol laws where all men are equal they are before God. Beliefs like this are the results of mlseducation. It is a departimS from the moral laws set down m the Ten Commandments, the Sermon on the Mount, anc* the Declaration' of Independence. It Is too bad we have to learn by such severe lessons as unem- , strikes, wars, moral de- in order to learn that? the" wages of sin is death; that socialism "by way of a graduated discriminatory tax means a lower standard of. living and eventually starvation. Yes, the proposed Income tax re-: duction is a mockery and R delu-' sion. It will, not produce the suits'desired. * * * Why Non-Unioii Workev * Produce 'More Than Union Workers There is a very definite reason! why workers who do not believe-in; labor unions produce more wealth, everything else "being equal, than workers who do believe in and De-long to labor unions. The reason is that the worker who does not believe in the labor union believes that wages should be paid in proportion as each man produces. He believes in an incentive on profit motive—wage. He also has respect for other people who have worked and denied themselves in accumulated capital. He recognizes that they have a right to a competitive ••"'.'.'.va oc th"lr. savines; On the other hand, the man who believes in.' labor unions does not believe that men should be paid in proportion as they pro-' duce, nor does he believe in a competitive reward for capital or for labor. He does not thus toe-. lieve in an incentive wage. Besides this, labor union members: invariably require work to be I done over that really produces no ; wealth. Thus a lot of energy is'- wasted. They, thus do not reap the fruits of efficient machines. They' also spend a lot of time in keep-1 ing other people from learning,; in-spite of the fact that such organizations as tlie' printers union claim they have an educational; program for apprentices. Their, prograra Instead of being educa-' ilonal ior the apprentices is based' on the purpose of keeping theiil* from learning as rapidly as they, can; All through history people who. work on a free market basis pro-; dtice more. The North during the time of slavery greatly outdistanced the South in production because the slaves wouldn't work as'hard as the free men. Just so the union members, who are slaves to the group and their ideologies of i scarcity that there is a limitedv amount of' work to' be done and' that men can work themselyesi otit of a' job, dd not produce' as) much as the man who does not* have cpvetousriess in his heart andl is willing to work on a cohipeti-; live basis. i That is the reason every labor union attempts to create a monopoly. That is the reason they) can't compete with free American', citizens-who believe in the American way o£ life that all men are' equal before the law as they are before God. Non-union workers produc* more than union workers as evidenced by the fact that union* know they cannot compete witi T .non-union workers.
