Labor's ho----ever, goe-s iar beyond the call lor an increase in '.he rr.inirr.'urr 1 . '.vare. Instead it has mr.-ed the realm o' interr^.tionsj finance. Congressmen are being to-'d by labor's very persuasive lobbyists that a higher jrummurp. wase will not only pu: more money in the pockets oi the natiors's laboring men but also solve the critical "balance erf payments" problem. The AFL-Cl6's Departrr.ent of Research has prepared a study to "prove" this, and it is being vdde- ly circulated on the Hiii. Before demonstrating h<w SDec:c-'.is is its contentions, let me describe what the cryptic ''baJar.ce of payments" phrase means. Every year, the United States sersds billions of dollars oot of th" country in fore!en aid.«t~--r.t capital. payments for import-*, in what tourists scatter abroad, what our Embassies and Information Centers spend, etc. This is balanced by the dollars that return in payments for import'. If our export o* goods pxcercs our export of dollar?, WP have a favorable "balance of payments" — and vice versa. Steadily. >incc the war. we have N^n pourinz out more dollars than w have brought in. and sirv-e 1?". '.ve have swnt abroad br-r-vpen 53.4 and J3.S billion more than has bcfn received to compensate far 5t._\Ve have SiS billion in gold at t crt Knox and a short-term indebtedness to foreign creditors of 520 billion. . It is hardly likely that those holding the paper for these short-term debts will call them in — wiping out our sold reserves. But it is a sword hanging over ;hp Federal government. The unfavorable balance of payments, it is generally agreed by economists, is cue to three major cause?. The billions of dollars in direr? and indirect foreign aid which we spend each year i? the most dramatic. But thcrr h-i.« br«n a systematic "flight of the dollar" to Europe, not "because investors lack confidenceinthe United States but. far more simply, because interest ratfs here are about the lowest in the world. Political pressure and unsound, economic thinking have kept that rate down to the point that any careful investor mm-' think in terms of what return he can get for his money. Tne third cause is orv> that the AFL-ClO's research«TS and legislative representatjvrs refuse to acc^pt. Resistance to automation and the increasing unit cost "f American goods are forcine the U.S. out of the work! rv-irket. Highly automated plants in .< "n. Germany and other round-•••«. mannfvi by workers with a lo- r wage-scale, can pnxluce manui .••• lured goods at prices far lower than those of the comparative America product. In the prewar years, for example, the Jspanrse tri^d to flood the world with their manufactured goods. But though the." 1 were far cheaper than ours, thry were shod- dv and desirable only for their price. Today the Japanese are turning out top quality goods at cheaper prices, and hurting us badly. Though wp f-xport S-1.5 billion more last year than \vo imported, the trend has been away from us. nnd as the Russians begin to dump some of thf.-ir prod- Uft s — at below-cost prices, to hurt us — the situation can get worse. AH, - CIO President George Meany angrily disputes this. He calls those who raise the issue of our balance of payments "enemies of progress" who are bring "disaster to America' 1 by insisting on a favorable balance and a sound dollar. Mr. Mcany is an exDPit at crying havoc, and he sees the current discussion as a plot to destroy the labor movement. His experts are urging that the only way to stop the flight of the dollar is Ml to lower even further the low interest rates that cause it. and (1\ to raise u-acres. l.;>bor has strong support for this on-ils-ear theory in Professor Walter Heller, now chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers. l^abor. of course, is fighting hard to maintain feather-bedding nrnrtieec that keep U.S. production costs hic;h. and cotvluct-nc; '.T'lernHa operations a'_','iinsi 'he further nutomation of our iiviu--'- try.

However, there's r.o UPC try- inp to establish diamonds, be- rausc, even if they arc divided r.-3. you won't have an entry to put back to your hand and cash them. So you have to choose between •working on hearts or rh;bs. T^ct'.i suppose you via the spade lead -with the kirig- and play the A-K and another rlub. It turns out that the suit !s divided 4-2, and the cr.d result Is that you go down one. The same thins: would happen if you had played the A-K and another heart.
