That is, he says the NCAI is trying to create interest In the potentalities of atomic fission by "scaring the hell" out of us — literally. Atorn bombs are so cheap, the committee says, that "even a srtldll nation may soon possess the means of obliterating a large nation at will." "ft is possible today," we are warned, "to smuggle an atomic bomb into a large city, and dStonate it at any time — even decades later — by means of a radio signal from another country." And don't trouble to try doing anything about this terrible $ltuation, either, because the committee says that there not only, is no defense now, but there ain't going to be none, neither. " Goodness, gracious, what's this world coming to? What's the-use of trying, if we're predestined to be blown or seared iht& unrecognized atoms — or maybe molecules or protons or neutrons? 'Of course, the comrrtittee could be over-excited, we hope. Let's see, now — '• It cost the United States two billion good, hard iron men — two billion, not million, dollars — to develop the atomic bomb. Even when the developmental peak had passed we had 65,000 men and women on the job, including several thousands of the best/scientists and engineers in the world. We had to apply mechanics so exact that most big nations, even/ would be incapable of imitating the job if we provided scientists to tell them what to do. The United States, Great Britain and Canada are so far in the van in atomic fission that if anybody ever overtakes us it Will be our own silly, fault. We are never going to start an atomic war, but if anybody else does we should be able to blow the/'be-jabbers out of them. ; And in our opinion the committee is speaking out of its own ignorance when it says that no defense can be devised against .the atomic bomb. Maybe yes, maybe no. No layman is in position to judge, and that includes the National Farmers Union, the United Steelworkers and the National Association of University Women, sponsors of the committee. The atomic bomb, used for destruction, is a frightful thing. Make no mistake. But this earth has survived a lot of frightful things already. Maybe it will this one. Indeed, in our opinion probably it will survive this one. Common Ground By v R. C. IIOILES Christian Century Publishes Articles Based On Errors The \vorst of our errors is religious miseducation. When the religious, leaders are advocating economic errors we arc bound to suffer. •, We, are bound-to have unemployment and eventually a lower •tftndard. of living. 'I want to article published in the Christian Century of January 30 under tho heading "A Lollipop for Danny."

Errpr number one is that increasing wages without increasing production, or even with increased, prpfluctjpn, increases the total pur- chftsing power. Total purchasing power is not increased one penny by artifically increasing wages. In fact total inir- chftslng power is greatly reduced,, bjj) artificially increasing wages of certain groups above what a free market would pstabljsli ,-ns a fair and ju^f-t Wflge. ft. niaicas not n par- tiolp of difference as to' the tola) ptfrbha&lng power whether I he employer has the money to buy or thfe workers Jvave the money -o buy, The-nature of the pwehnses miglil he differwit. lull, tho total purchasing power will he exactly 1he same. To clniin othonvise is equivalent to wiying thr.t if you take a quart of milk out of one gallon jar and put it into anolhcr jar that has three quarts you will have more milk than you originally )md. It is exactly as simple as that. Yet misguided: men have been saving for the last 30 yesrs that purchasing power is increased by inqreasing wages. Total purchasing power is increased by more prpduption of what people want, whp themselves have produced cofyipthing of equivalent value! To-, lali production is always increased when all men are free to help es- taljlish values. That is when they arti free to produce what the con- s>Uj|ier is wJHiiifj anc| able . to pay for.

Because if thoy had increased their efficiency 30 percent, as he contends;, employers and people who buy things would gladly buy from them on a free market without any compulsory, wages by simultaneously stopping production. Mr. Eby says, "When they oppo:,e an increase in purchasing power they are cutting their own t'conoiriic throats for they are .ssrkiiH 1 , to shrink the mar-' ket for their own goods and services." But he does not say who opposes an inci't' in purchasing power. I personally know of no one who opposes it ami neither does Mr. Koy, nor anyone else. But because thev oppose-an increase of-pur- •ha'sing power for ono- group by reducing purchasing power of another group does not'warrant Mr. Eby in saying that people oppose an increase in purchasing power. Anybpdy that opposes an increase in purchasing power is an absolute i>nemy of society. He vvould be insane IP oppose an increase in purchasing power.

By HAY TUCKER INCREDIBLE—The prospect, that Presidential jester George B. Allen will eventually hund the board of the Reconstruction Finance Corporation lias provoked a r.estudy of the origin, operations and long-time purpose of the most colossal banking institution in the world's history. The appointment of Mr. Allen to any high post would provoke anything. Criminally organized by Herbert, Hoover merely to bail out a few small banks and industries in an attempt to stave off an Inevitable depression born of Coolklije-Mellon- Hoover inflationary policies during Uit: Lite 1920 boom, the RFC now has ovt-v-all assets and control of credit totaling at least $30.000,000,000. As of today, the RFC aould buy out till -the railroads and the public •..•tilities of the country and still h'.ivr; nnrc capital and assets than any private bank in the United States. Incredible as it may seem, a man with no financial or banking experience will eventually run the RFC at a tirao when it will become a more important agency than it hns been in the past. He will be charged with its liquidation, which means the settling up of old bills and scores, bargaining over payments of interest and principal on federal investments and the .subsidizing of new industries such as the Kaiser-Frazer automobile, shipbuilding, steel, aluminum and other plants. TECHNIQUE—But the most aina- fiyig and hitherto unwritten chapter of the HFC's history is how this agcr. :y. inadvertently stole the leadership of world finance from Wall and Threadneedle streets. It explains why Washington has supplanted New Yorl: and London as the capital of credit and money, with the inept but agreeable "Georgie." Sllen as 'jlv? world's financial czar. U,ider President Hoover the RFC was a sort of glorified pawnshop, with former Vice President Charles G; Da was as chairman. President Roosevelt planned to operate it a- lontr the .same lines, with Houston Banker Jesse Holman Jones as the big fsoss. Having prevented a bank failure in Houston in 1331 by hard-boiled but cooperative methods, Mr. Jones thought that )is could use the same U.cOjninue in "savins? the country's bunk':, railroads, public nUlitin.s and industriwi. c:ONTI!Oij~.1(MKf % .Jones became n ''(•drnil, ]p|4al "i\'ii(:f!" lor nil the ".:jil,s mid doiv.s" .spc.til'itic.'i of thn. loiuilry.

Hi; and the federal bank examiii,- .-:rs, who arc subject to tlie secretary .•)(• the treasury, overvalued more than 2,000 financial institutions' holdings in order to {rive them the semblance of solvency. But "Un:le Jo&so" saved those banks. The time came, however, when the RFC had to assume control of all national financing. The federal agency reached its present estate because ths leading'bankers of the nation abdicated their responsibilities. Had it not been for their weakness and surrender, the control of money and credit might still rest in New York instead of Washington. Here- is the inside story which "Georgie" Allen doesn't know now but may learn: CONFIDENCE —After President KooseVslt had closed and reopened most of the mtidn's banks in 1933 the fin,''.n:ial horizon looked brigh to the men vn Washington. But thei rosy hopes were shattered when th Hn'rriman National Bank of Ne 1 York failed and closed its doors will liabilities of $6,000,000. It looked as if the new deal pro gram for restoring confidence—"Th only thing we have to fear is fear —would be shattered at the start. A high official handling thes f.roblenv, hopped a train for the me tropolis and blustered into the offic of J. P. Morgan at 23 Wall Stree the next morning. He insisted, h plradecl, he beg;.;ecl that the late P. open the Harriman Bank to re assure Americans that our financia syptem was sound, although tempor arily shaken. "How can I do it?" querried Mi Morgan, then the acknowledged head of the nation's banking fra ternity. "Here's how," said F. D. R.s rep resentnUve. "First, you sign a check on behalf of the Harriman bank and make it a fat one. Then, pu; on your hat and go up and do\v) Brjiid and Wall streets, insisting that the heads of every other im- fortant barjx! kick in to save fth-e Harriman bank. They will do jit if you ask them to come along." &. FIGHT— Mr. Morgan called in George Whitney, then the comint, young man in Wa.ll street, and Bus- s?ll C. Lel'fingwull, who had servec in the treasury under Carter Glass He explained to them the proposa oi President Roosevelt's emissary. "We have neither a moral nor z responsibility to save the Harriman bank," stonned Mr. Whitney And the bank was not saved. When the RFC representative reported his failure to President latter clamped hi.s Roosevelt, ths jaws and said: "Okay. The fi«ht is on. Wo wil) rii'l'.c i.hir RFC the biggest bank'in (hi', world.

Constitution I have in m$ hands a bulletin of the Philadelphia Council .of the American-Soviet frienudship, schools and colleges division, for January, 1946. This bulletin is, I am reliably informed, being sent to schools in Philadelphia. In the past this was done more or less subtly. Teachers who were members of communist chibs, or trusted by club members, were used to get the message into i-eceptive minds, but now, 1 am told, the circulation is openly done. One portion, reads: "Star Febtti-* ary 10!" The purpose for featuring February 10 With a star on the school calendar is because it is election day in Russia for deputies to the supreme soviet. The gratuitous teacher's aid asks: "Have you discussed with your students who may vote, how candidates are selected, how many delegates are elected, what the supreme soviet does?" and then precede with several pages of material to give our youth a comr plete and extensive education in the election procedure of the soviet stale. I have talked to two of my nephews who have had this supplementary education furnished in the classroom at the kindly instigation of the friends of the soviet union, and have found that they were totally uninformed about the election procedure of the United States of America. If we have to pay school taxes to support schools that teach (he soviet constitution but haven't time to teach the American constitution to our children, I am at least making bold to request that a fuller cd- iK'ation on this subject held to be of such prime importance to the children be given to them while they are at it. I particularly ask for correction of the omission of any mention of the rather interesting fnct that the soviet constitution pro-: vides for no, opposition candidates, and no opposition votes in these highly decorative elections. In this they arc just like Hitler's "ja" elections— save that Russians write "da." Now I don't think it's fair and good SDortsrrianship on the pnrt. of the Philadelphia Council on Soviet- American frienclshin, and the many teachers in the Philadelphia schools, and no doubt the public schools in many other of our American cities, who in the interests of "pure knowledge," of course, use the children's classroom time to hand on this information so essential to their developing lives as American citizens.' — I don't think it quite cricket, or. Hovle, or whatever expression you like, to leave the children with a misconception on this one intriguing angle. It might just be rather important . to them. It seems to me that it would be a little Jike teaching them that Robin Hood had a barn, without telling them'j he was a bandit. O)' telling them what a fine British accent Bcnedic Arnold had. but omitting that he did gather information for the wrong party. Of course I wouldn't think of letting the deep, dark suspicion enter my mind that the Philadelphia Council of Soviet-American frierid- 10 could have omitted the little (fact that the soviet elections are run on the same principle as those of the late condemned Herr Hitler, through anything but' sheer oversight!

'••'•-• I refer to a rather widespread feeling in this zone, and one finds it registered- among Some of our Allies, that the American public is weakening in its earlier ''determination to occupy Germany militarily. This feeling has been by a engendered widespread ahd insistent demand by the home folk ate lion for immedi- demobiliza- of soldier relatives, coupled with the lack of adequate replacements for those demobilized. YJou hear the , soinment that OE many Americans are ' reverting to isolalipnisrn. Surely there has been a misinterpretation of our attitude. It's hard to see how anyone could fail to regard with sympathetic understanding a desire to get the release of our boys who have been long in service abroad. However, distance often distorts vision and the United States is a long way from the occupied zones of Germany. Thus, we find a considerable amount of uncertainty over here regarding just what policy the American public wants to pursue and uncertainty, of course, is a bad thing for morale. The Allied leadership has made the needs quite clear. Reformation of Germany and the politico-economic reconstruction of Europe depend upon a lontj term ecciioaticv of thn retch by the Allies. The alternative is continued disorganization and ult'inrttely more war. The British appear to be set for at least'P '30-year occupation. Orm assumes that the' Russians and. French have similar intentions. Your columnist, also assumes that l he people of the United States have the same niin, but it would be most useful if'this could be demonstrated for the benefit of the doubtful oVer here.

ON THE MATTER OF SPILLING TIE MILE By VfeTER KI)SON NEA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON.—In addition to all of its other troubles, OPA now gets blamed for making'it impossible to keep the young folks and hired, hands clown on the farm.

He said that all the farmers had been able to do dyiring the war was liquidate their d^bts. iH,e said it was so bad that if a farmer sjat down and figured up the ep'slj of his grain, feed and straw, h^ had nothing left for his labor and, nothing with which to rehabilitate his plant. He explained it was possible for farmers to keep on going- because they "could live x>ff tljelr deprecation." EQPP VS.. The trouble was, Haag went on, that food was the one thing every- bpdy had to h,^ve, and therefev.e everybody waiUed to get it a.s. as, possible. Nobody over tlpo! puce oi l{e tuol. u.t,uu with _fua4 being 40 per cent of 4Jie York state, made a speech jqst like a congressman.

Also, his women' folks da/sen't refuse to mind the hired hanHs' children when tlie hired hands' wives wanted 'to go to town to 'do some shopping. If they did refuse, the hifefl hands left.
