BY PERSONS UNKNOWN The congressional investigating committee has completed its three-month inquiry into what happened at Pearl Harbor. It has taken some 4,500,000 words of testimony, accumulated some 20 pounds of exhibits. The net result seems to be utter confusion. There will be a majority report that probably will clear the administration of all blame. There will be a minority report that probably will place much blame in and near the White House. Upon only one thing can an agreement be anticipated. Presdmbably both sides will concede that somebody blundered. Without partisanship or prejudice, solely on the committee's record, an objective analyst might well paraphrase the well-known coroner's jury verdict and say that "the American navy was left to its death by a person or persons to us unknown." The inquiry has been a disappointment. That is not merely because it did not find a scoundrel or even an acceptable goat. So many made such human mistakes, apparently, that even ultimate history may have trouble reaching categorical conclusions. What is hardest to forgive is the atmosphere of cheap partisanship in which the committee functioned from beginning to end. Tho one who is at all familiar with political and propaganda methodologies, it was apparent throughout that each party had entered the inquiry with a bill of goods to be sold. Instead of seeking honestly to find out how our fleet came to be surprised and almost annihilated, so that we might guard against any repetition, each side spent its time trying to find or twist evidence to support is preconceptions. If anybody yet has produced a conclusion that may hope to stand the test of time, perhaps it was Lt. Col. George W. Bicknell, who was General Short's assistant chief of intelligence, who said: "I feel that we might expect another Pearl Harbor unless we can develop an intelligence service that is coordinated and efficient and made available to all agencies through one central point." To which he added what seems a very fair summary of the 150,000-page hearings: . "It was not a question of personnel. It was the system that was wrong." Common Ground By R. C. HOILES Th* Question No Union Advocate Can Answer The question that always slumps everyone who attempts to defend unionism, is the question o£ seniority. They always .svade it or side step the question or deliberately tell untruths about if. ' I recently attended a forum at Which a representative of tho Merchants and Manufacturers Assn. was a speaker and u representative of the United States Steel Workers CIO organization. was also a speaker. Neither the representative of the Merchants and Manufacturers or the labor union really understood or believed in free enterprise. It was rather a sad discussion, when free enterprise was defended by a mna Who believed in labor unions col- •lective monopoly. 'The steel representative was Mr. Ed Hollingshead. He was asked whether the CIO practiced seniority and if it did not practice seniority, then how could the slow worker compete with the iatit worker. Of course, he had no answer for this. He brazenly and untruthfully claimed the employer was permitted to be the judge of efficiency. The facts of the matter are that if the employer is privileged to select his help, the higher the union forces wages the more difficult it is for the Slow and inefficient man to gel a Job. In fact as the wages go up the more workers are unable to get or hold a job. Every worker who cannot produce an amount equivalent to his wage, becomes unemployed. Then, of course, ha goes on the dole and those who are working have to be taxed to support him so that in the long run the union does not even help the efficient worker who can get a job because of his efficiency • On the other hand, if the labor union does the selecting, the pro- 1 jnotlng, the transferring, then tho judgment of the man with e.\• perience who had to stand the loss Of bad promotions, is practically lost to the organization and to .society. Society suffers a great lew? by having men promoted or selected who will promote tha labor unions' ideas of efficiency rather than those of the employer Who has demonstrated his effici ency by the fact of the accumulation' of his capital. And this Mr. Hoilingshead had the nerve lo tell the audience that the CIO let the employer be tha ju,<3ge of efficiency, He did thil »t the very time the CfO representatives in Petroit were demanding that the union instead of th.e General Motors should have the final say as to promotions and transfers and selection of help. ' And' this selecting of help and fe$I>|> ^"le to reward or promote tfte workers that the proprietor fcjjUeyes are efficient will largely 4eterrnine the cost of goods.

Register) I The figures of the Citizen's National Committee, Inc., showing that each citizen of Connecticut Carries a burden of $2,fi78 as his (per captia share of the United Stales federal debt, offer food for tober thought. The per capita pliare of the citizens of this state is the fifth highest among the 48 plates and District of Columbia. The total debt burden upon Con- nerlieut is one of ?4,G82,000,000. This is n tremendous amount of money, a burden which will be felt for many years to come. It is well to realize, in consideration of the mortgaged future which each citizen faces?, that this individual debt figure is computed upon the basis of the $258,682,000,000 federal debt as of June 30, 1945. That debt has since soared to even higher proportions. Its peak lias not as yet been readied. It is not a debt we owe to our- Reives. It is one which m.ust be paid, by the citizens of today and by his children and their children. It should bring home to every citizen the imperative need for insistence upon federal economy. Reduction of this debt burden can only be accomplished on the day that a balanced national budget is achieved. Even then, it is going to be a long, hard pull. There must be no delay permitted. Housewives May Gel More Canning Sugar WASHINGTON, March 6—W, Housewives may get a little more sugar for fanning this year than last season.

In order for the farmers to produce 25 percent more food, McDonald said, the OPA would have to be abolished or its price ceilings lifted; or there would be no profit in in- creasitiB farm production.

He told them, quietly but firmly, that he was the head man on the Washington lot and that he intended to a:t in that capicity for the next two yours at least. He warned them, that they must stop squabbling and go back to work. Mr. Truman had summoned his aicies to the cabinet room to give them his final word on the wage- price program for which the nation had been waiting many weeks during the steel strike. He also called thorn to announce changes in his economic stabilization household. Amon.t those on hand for the mild lecture wero Fred M. Vinson, secretary of the treasury; Reconver- sion Director John W. Snyder; Price Administrator I'ruil Porter; 'former Stabilization Director John c. Collet: Clinton !."•'. Anderson, secretary of agriculture, and a few other key figures. They assembled in an atmosphere of uneasiness and tension because of growing popular dissatisfaction with the Administration's wavering policies, mounting criticism from prominent democrats on Capitol Hill and reports that some present might be demoted or oven fired. PROGRAM —President Truman explained his new wage-price program—a bulge but not a break through the line, he characterized it—and then announced the reshuffling of his economic'cabinet. He quieted all humors by shifting Chester Bowles to tho office of stabili r /.a- tion und Mr. Porter to the post of price administrator. He made clear Mr.-Snyder would remain hi.* principal advisor as reconversion director. "That is the plan," continued Mr. Truman. ''I expect everybody to pitch in and make it work. I know you can make it work. Now it's up to you to do it." S r (50. Inasmuch as many of these purchasers are the heads of families, it is obvious that savings of this amount will not transform them into heavy buyers of goods or tide them over for a very long period. Government experts are making further studies of the savings score in a scientific attempt to ascertain the volume of purchasing power,-us well as the variety, that will bri available when production hits peak volume. New findings may brighten the economic canvas. But as of today they fear that most of the vaunted wartime savines lie in the vaults ol the wealthy who found that Uncle Sam w,as paying hlp'her interest than they could get, in "other fields. ^iinnf7'PiT7il? C .MACKENZltb COACH—He talked, as one of those present describes it, like a football coach .letween the halves when his team needs an injection of pep to make it do its best. He asked [or and obtained individual pledges of cooperation. It was a unique meeting for a President and his family. The program was promulgated immediately and the steel strike ended soon thereafter. Mr. Snyder hopped a train for Detroit, where he delivered a back-to-work address that was c, paraphrase of the chief executive's earlier talk. Mr. Bowles trudged to Capitol Hill TO try to persuade the legislators to extend anti-inflation tontrols. Wall Street, which had been buying and betting on a sharp inflationary trend, reacted with a fall in the prices of stocks. ANSWER—Numerous critics, including former Mayor Fiorello H. LsGuardia, have asked why it took so long for Mr. Truman to make up his mind about a general wage-price program, They want to konw why steel manufacturers were not given their $5-a-ton increase many weeks ago, sparing the nation the strike that crippled heavy industry. Mr. Truman has given the answer many times. He reepated it to New Yorks former executive when the latter saw him a week or so ago. I am no superman and I know it. I urn just going to do the very best I can. I know that I can't do it all. so I expect to pick good men to help me. If they do a good job, I'll leave them alone. If they don't, I'll fire them." ' He fired nobody on St. Valentine's clay. But he told them to go to work and make the new program worker else. SAVINGS-Federal and private statisticians' studies tend to refute the theory that millions of normally low-paid Americans possess a vast store of saving's as constructive purchasing power or as a hoard against economic reverses. It appears from these surveys that the bulk of the rainy clay money or securities is held by the banks, life insurance companies, investment corporations and thu higher bracketeers. It has been established that about thirty billion dollars' worth of the treasury's E bonds, the most popular issue with the ordinary buyer, has been sold to the folks with hi- comes below $5,000 a year. In the aggregate that is a large amount. But ;hp breakdown piesents an entiiely dlilevent picture to the practical economist. VAULTS—FolKs earning_$3,Q00 or with AP World Traveler BERN, March 6. — Switzerland's fixed policy of absolute neutrality which Ms existed in principle for seme four and a half centeries, raises a tough problem in her re- 'a tions with the United Nations organization, which ;hus far hasn't announced a n y rneUiod whereby membership can be accorded to neutKils as such, tlint i.s, states Unit claim special exemptions. We are likely tc hear a good deal .OEWITI MACKENZIE about this before long because the questions seems bound to arise whether Switzerland is to be given preferential treatment. But they would about as soon give up one of their beloved Alps as their neutrality, and if you will glance at your maps of Europe you will begin to see why. Switzerland lies in the heart of the continent and it i.s the crossroads of the shortest routes from north to south and from west to east. That puts this little country of some 16,000 square miles decidedly on the spot, perched as it is on its mountains among Germany, France and Italy. Trouble among the major powesrs always meant grave danger for inavsion for Switzerland. But that's not the whole story. The population of the Swiss feder- tion of 22 canlons is drawn chiefly from three races—German, Fernch, and Italian. German is spoken by about two millions, French by close to a milion and Italian by the balance. Now one can see with half an eye that if Switzerland had abandoned her neutrality in a war involving France, Germany or Italy, she not only would have invited invasion but likely would have caused heartburnings among her own people. Indeed, internal troubles might have resulted. Ar, the Swiss put their case, they have full confidence in the allied leaders who fought for the liberty of the world. They would gladly accept an invitation to join the UNO if abandonment of neutrality were not involved, but as things now stand the question would have to be submitted to the Swiss people in a plebiscite. The consensus here is that the answer would be "no." Attorney General Rules on Payment AUSTIN, March 6 —(/P)—Money to piy an extra deputy in the district clerk's office at Victoria may be taken from the county officers salary fund, the attorney general ruled. Victoria asked for the opinion because a clerk who was injured in an automobile accident had to be temporarily replaced by the extra deputy. In another opinion the Wharton county attorney was informed that school districts applying for transportation aid only, and not com-r plying with other provisions of the 4.9th legislature's rural aid law coiv* cerning salaiy^nnd. tuition aid are not entitled to transportation aid,. In the district in que&Uon., teachers salaries pai4 out o£ local fynds are higher than tlve scal# set in Ihe rural aid. act. fi? EftSKtNK NfcA Staff llOLLYWQOD.

ABOUT THIS WAGE-PRICE INTERPRETATION Texas Today By JACK RUTLEDGE AP Staff Writer Tip 'o Tey.as topics: Horse traders ;ell age by counting teeth. So does a valley bus driver, says the Valley Morning Star of Harlingen. H'e got the idea when he asked an elderly woman the age of her little girl. The woman silently grasped the child's chin, forced open the girl's mouth, and motioned driver James Bullington to take a look. "Sho had a full set of teeth, so I chanted her full fare," he said, ji Mrs. M. D. Gallagher of Los Angeles had fresh valley tamales for lunch the other day. She got hungry for tamales, and wrote her aunt, Mrs. Una Palmer of Brownsville, about it. Mrs. Palmer packed five dozen and sent them air express. They left the valley at 8:45 p. m. and they reached Los Angeles at 10:25 a. m. the next day, in time for lunch. Visitors often are confused with the Latin-American names of valley towns, but a McAllen telephone operator got all mixed up with an Anglo Saxon town name and had the fire department going around in circles. The false alarm was turned in when someone asked the operator for Pharr. She thought the voice said fire. Cold coffee and hot-tempered waitresses don't mix, a Brownsville man admits ruefully. When he complained about the tepid Java, the waitress slapped him soundly. One of the year's first special 'edi-, tions in Texas was the Brownsville Herald's neat 2-page Charro Days Edition published last week as the fun festival started.

That's always the wiiy It is with these economic controls. The top ffiiy.s Issue it Im/.id dirfctivf! in .'.weeping gcncralllns. Then the men who have to carry it out worry for a week or so, rewriting the order in more specific language which the leaders of labor and management can understand. Then the prescription gets tried on the dog— meaning the public—to see whether it kills him, cures him, or leaves him no better off than he was before. E O. 9697 looks innocent enough on paper. The orders says it is intended to "promote the continued stabilization of the economy." But the order also makes it a lot easier for labor to get wage increases and for business lo get price increases. And how stabilization can be continued while prices nre permitted to rise on the one hand and wages on the other, is something that will require some awfully fancy language to interpret. The brake which the government is now authorized to apply in achieving stabilization Is the limitM- tion of profits to the 1936-39 levels. That might well prove to be a completely worthless brake. Suppose a gadget cost one dollar to produce in 1936-39, and suppose it sold for two dollars. Suppose now, through the granting of wage increases, it costs a dollar and a half to make this 'same gadget. With the same profit margin, It would have to sell for two dollars and a half. That may be stabilizing profits, but it certainly isn't stabilizing wages or prices. ENDANGERS ENTIRE PRICE- CONTROL STRUCTURE Nevertheless, Stabilization Administrator Chester.Bowles seems satisfied that the new order will accomplish the desired objective. Bowles apparently thinks the "bulge" will be only in manufactured goods, which will nffect a mere 10 per cent of the cost of living. It is his opinion that the controls will stay on food, rent and clothing, the three principal items in the index of prices. But the pressures to break these controls are now greater than ever before. A new minimum wage law would increase the costs of both foods and textiles. Furthermore, incentive increases are being granted textile and clothing manufacturers to secure more production of the items still in short supply, incentive increases are also being given the producers of building materials to get greater production. And the farm-bloc congressmen are talking loudly about changing the parity formula so as to include the cost of the farmers' own labor in determining so as to include cost of farm products. Even with the price cont:ir>l and staUH/ation acts renewed until June' 30, 1947—in spite of ali th-3 pressures against them—Executive Order 9697 has made it much easier to get both wage and price increases and there are many people who do not share the Bowles confidence that exerything is going to be dandy. AFL BRANDS POLICY MISTAKEN RETREAT The suspicion grows that the new wage-price policy will merely legalize creeping inflation. If that suspicion is correct, the soundest unofficial interpretation yet made is that of the American Federation of Labor, which thinks the new policy is a retreat from stabilization and a horrible mistake. The A. F. L. argument is simply that grantig price increases to pay for wage increases merely raises the wage-earners' cost of living and leaves them no better off than they were before. The first few weeks after; the new regulations and interpretations of E. O. 9697 are issued will probably be a period in which everyone will be feeling his way. Few employers will be willing to take a chance on granting a wage increase unless they know in advance price increases will be forthcoming. And either the wage stabilization board nor the office of price administration will be making many hasty decisions on the first few appeals submitted. For these first few decisions will set the precedents for the hundreds of thousands of cases that are sure to follow. Sttifc GLANCES •V COPR. 1946 BY NEA SERVICE. INC. T, M. DEC. U. S. PAT. OFF.
