"It's been a trying day for me, too—something dreadful happening on every one of my favorite prpgramsJ" Russia and Allies Need to Cooperate Or Stop Talking By DeWITT MACKENZIE AP Foreign Affairs Analyst If your columnist could be given two wishes in connection with the British-French-Russian conference in Paris regarding the Marshall economic program, with the assurance that one of them would come true, they would be these: 1. That the Soviet Union and the western allies might compose their grave differences and join hands not only in the Marshall plan but In rehabilitation of the whole war- plagued world. 2, That they quit shadow-boxing, agree to disagree and go their ways. This would mean consolidating the division of Europe into eastern and western blocs, but it would at least enable the western allies to get ahead with rehabilitation in as wide a sphere as they could reach, not excluding even the so-called Soviet sphere of influence. t •Now of course he would be a super-optimist who expected wish No. One to be granted. Moscow already has turned thumbs down on the Marshall project, and charges America with having ulterior purposes in making the suggestion—an accusation which Marshall yesterday termed "fantastic" and "malicious". However, that should clear the way for the granting of wish No. Two. Russia has given her answer—in effect that she doesn't want to participate in a unified effort. She has her own row of beans to hoe, which is to bring Europe under Moscow's domination. The western allies long had fear- this was the situation, but they had hesitated to force the issue with their World War ally. They hoped against hope that something would happen to make things come right. . Then out of the blue came General Marshall's proposal for European rehabilitaion. It was a proposition which called for a direct response—cooperation or non-cooperation. :The world's observers recognized that 'this answer would apply not only to European recovery but would DANCE Every Night From 9 to 12 Beer by ihe Case Budweiser on Tap BELVEDERE CLUB On, tbe Burger Highway reflect the Soviet policy for general cooperation with the western allies. As was widely anticipated. Russia has come through with a blunt refusal to cooperate. Thus is only remains for the western democracies to act ncordlngly—to start energetically to take their own line in clcalins with world affairs. .r>»,t>uv,t;i)n I-'KENCHMKN' (Chicago Journal of Commerce) Not nil of the dampness is the |fauK of the late Spring weather. iSonie of it stems from the copious tears shed over the demise of the (OPA. Loud arc the w-nilings of folk who assure you that today's high iprices are the fruit of de-control. : We wish that some of th«so Tcrcmiahs might, have been present at n luncheon given by the French, consul-general f.o r Paul Bastid, former French minister of commerce. A Chicago Journal of Commerce representative asked M. Bastid, "What is the present status (>f the food situation in France?" ; M. Bastid shrugged Gallically. i"In the provinces it is much better," he said, "but in Paris It is toad—very bad. One cannot subsitt bn the rationed foods alone, and ithe niarche noire—the black market—prices are enormous for both ii'ood and wine-" "You mean 1;he peasants hold iback their produce and sell it trt ,lhe black marketeers-" : "Exactly." , "But how would you cure this condition, monsieur?" "There is only one way. Get rl<! of regulation. If prices existed on a free market, they would seek iheir own proper level, somewhat j;\bove the fixed price but below •.the black market prices." I M. Bastid added that, oddly 'enough, the Conrmunists in France •are less zealous in opposing decontrol that are the Socialists. The "Commies" are mere skilled in gauging popular feeling, he said. It is their orientation toward the Kremlin more than their domestic economic philosophy w h i e h has caused their exclusion from the government. American tourists, paying fancy prices for restaurant food, are compensated by the surprisingly low tariffs for hotel rooms,- taxi fares, (heater tickets and travel in France. But the French native has no such compensation—nor lias he the American standard of income. And so Jacques B.onhomme, the man on the Paris street, Ughtenii his bell: another notch, muttering (he French equivalent for "Price control? Bah!"
