Reuthsr that states that he, as president of tfte united Auto Workers, has proposed a program that "calls for creating machinery at the community, state, regional and national levels fo deal with the unemployment problem." That Reuther "had earlier proposed a march oft Washington by unemployed workers to dramatize their plight. Me told an AFkciO legis- 16 of lative conference in Lansing last with night the jobless march 'would shatter the complacency of the nation's leaders.' " There is one thing that this column agrees with Reuther on and that is, that unemployment is a tragic problem. It is especially tragic because there is no real need for unemployment if we had n free and unhampered market where all men wore permitted to take part in a division of labor and all men, not just the majority, were permitted to help establish values. In other words, if we had a naturnl society where the government was not influenced by pressure groups to pass laws that give certain groups rights (hat other groups and individuals did not have. Majority Bargaining And the labor groups and the business groups and the farmers have succeeded in getting laws passed that interfere with the inalienable God-given rights of the individual. They have been so successful in getting these laws passed that we do not really have collective bargaining — we have majority bargaining. Those who do not agree with the majority have no voice whatsoever in the division of labor or helping establish values. They are prevented from making nn Individual contract-bargain. They have to work at the wages established by the majority or their representatives. And there can be no true value of anything if one or •19 per cent are prevented from helping establish values. And as It stands now in many lines of industry, 49 per cent of those engaged in the work have no right to help establish values and help divide labor. Priced Out of the Market Would Mr. Reuther contend that prices cannot be so high that Ihey can be priced out of the market? Are we not pricing products of American labor out of the foreign markets? The result is that we have diminished our gold supply by nearly $2 billion during the last year. It seems absurd to contend that ideways •:""•• ..<^.

A little over one hundred and fifty years ago, in a diminutive log cabin in the wilds of Kentucky, Abraham Lincoln was born. In our recollection of that event this year, we are particularly impressed with Lincoln's formative years. So often, as we think of this man, our thoughts embrace his later life, -his years as president, his emancipation proclamation, but in the personal dedication he felt toward acquiring an education. He wanted to learn. Despite the difficulties to be encountered, the desire to know was so strong in Mm. that he mounted above the apparent obstacles and turned them to advantage. He managed to get a copy of Blackstone's "Commentaries.' 1 And he poured over those the trying period of the Civil War,'pages, taking his tim<?, drilling his great humanity even to his the splendid lessons of justice and j foes, the tragedy of his violent mercy into his very soul. Had] there been a government-paid In death. But as the twig li bent, the tree inclines; and the bending of the rough-hewn personality of lit- tU Abe occurred long before his emergence as a political figure extraordinary, Not long ago, a winter of some repute asked a pertinent question structor supervising him, he might have had a smattering of this work and a smattering from other contemporary studies. But he'd have been pushed one; way and pulled another, given little opportunity to take the time and to expand himself within the thoughts and words of the im-i concerning Lincoln's early life.

There would to question. As we look at it, Lincoln had an advantage denied ev- the ments; and there would have been teachers trying to get him to see the "advantages" of Soviet Rus- «ry young man and young wom-;gia's socialism over the "out-1 an who is presently born in these moded" "decadent" system of United States. The advantage was'American capitalism, that there was no law compelling! In short, instead of having a! the young man to attend a school, free and open mind and the op- Had there been auch a law then, porlunity of filling it with sound jorilyilis and the product of thoir labor can be sold, — have jobs. And when the wages are set by mayority, the'inofficient invariably outvote the geniuses - the real creators. And when the majority have a right to prevent the talented man from being rewarded for his production, it greatly reduces production. If we had a froe market then eveiy worker could work as many hours as he wanted to work, production would RO up greatly and our standard of living would go up and we would not have long periods of unemployment, and it is even doubtful whether we would be in one war after another. Of course, if people want to work less hours rather than work more and have more, they should have that choice. But they should have the choice to work as many hours as they want to at the best wago they can get voluntarily without any interference from labor unions or from such laws as minimum wages and time-and-one- half for overtime and a progressive income tax that penalizes th« genius who benefits mankind and reducps his ability to seive mankind. Reuther'g only solution seems to be more government or reduce the number of hours. He seems to think that man is like an animal — that he has all his wants satisfied. The fact of the matter is, that the minute m,tn or woman has one want satisfied, he or she has many, many more. And since wants are nn'v satisfied b.v creative work, and we have unlimited wants, there would be unlimited work to do if we had a natural «> ciety where all mpn are permit(pd lo help divide labor and help establish values. The men who so believe will answer questions, but men like Reuther. who believes wages should be established b.v the majority rather tiian by each and every individual, will not answer questions.

Of course there could be full employment under the control of I the majority or some dictator but it would be a slave employment for the minority and a very low standard of living for all except j t j le the big bosses. Rptither's Inexperience It is alarming fo think that n<v>. pie would have any confidence in \Valter Kemher's ability to promote full employment. Reuther himself never employed anybody, and yet he has the effrontery m propose method* of eliminating unemployment. It is just as rational to have any confidence in Keuther, who has never furnished jobs, to work out principles and rules of conduct that will result in full employment, as it would be to have confidence in a man as a doctor who had never had any experience in medicine or chemistry in counseling people as to the best method of preserving health. Or it is just as rational to have confidence in Reuther as it would be to have confidence in a man told Ful- brlght, "and I'll do my best to present your views. I think you have a good point that a bitter fight ovr- civil rlgjits might split Congress wide open and endanger bipartisanship in foreign policy. H Is certainly supremely important lo avoid that during the perilous Berlin crisis." Attorney General Rogers, who drafted the Administration's civil rights measure, blocked the proposed delay.

My bride was in Milwaukee, »nd still is, and it seemed to me the other afternoon that It would be a pleasant and unheinous thing to telephone an attractive British actress I know and ask her to have dinner with me. This is a bright girl whose conversation runs Into select channels having to do ivith a spread of information from Cro-Magnon probables to the exact difference between nuclear fission and fusion. Overseas pilots, polo players, scholars, savants, pundits, writers, members of Parliament and, for all 1 know, presidents of new, hopeful, young republics the world over are among her friends. She will talk about the theater, if kicked in the shins, and about her own contributions to it if you put a .45-caliber automatic pistol to her temple and growl: "All right, you rat. Talk!" Otherwise, no. I told her that if she was free to do so, it might be amusing to share dinner and I'd pick her up at 7:30 p.m. She agreed that it was worth a gamble, and as things worked out I was in her lobby at 7:10. On the house phone I said 1 was early and would wait and most women would have let me. Instead, she said: "I've been ready for hours. Had nothing else to do. I'll be right down." And she was. Put me down among the old- fashioned gents with steel in their veins. I don't think a woman wants to be consulted about where to go for dinner. She likes to be told. So I told her we'd drive out the parkways to Idlewlld and have dinner at The Golden Door, where the food is good and the atmosphere quiet except for the occasional snarl of an airplane taking off for Beirut, Istanbul or Mara- kcch. Or even Nashville. She said that was fine, never had been there and she liked to look at airplanes in action. So we drove out about the time the traffic was dwindling and things went fine. We coursed lightly over a smattering of chat ranging from William Faulkner and his point of no return sentences to John O'Hara and his delight .in detailing every nuance and gesture in the more intimate sides of human life, from what winlcr rain does to modern shoes to did she want the heater on because it was nippy and a station wagon is not cold-proof. She said she didn't want the heater on, being British and hardy. So we arrived at Idlewild and had a fable by the window and the old coot writing this had to be dashing. Between the icy park ing lot and the warmth of the res taurant, a matter of some yards, he put his topcoat jauntily over his right shoulder, a picaresque Errol Flynn kind of pose, and 10 minutes later sneezed. The food was good, but not piping hot, and we talked until about 10 o'clock and I took her back home, sneezing three more times on the way. After dropping her off at her place, I drove back out to the country and began to shiver ominously. This time I did turn the heater on and it felt great. During the night I waked twice with chills, rammed some aspirin down and went hack ( 0 sleep. At 9 o'clock I waked with a roaring cold. And that is why, boys, I say that if you wear a wedding ring and have no social right to be motoring over the Long Island countryside at night with a pi Hankerings 'Oops' Magazine Brings ^o Happiness! By MCLEMORK Among my Christmas presents last year was a subscription to ft. magazine which, for camouflage purposes, I'll call "Oops! You Bought The Wrong One." The aim of "Oops" is & praiseworthy one _ to aid the consume In getting the most for his money In its laboratory all manner o products are tested for strenRtha and weaknesses, and the findings passed on to readers each month. few issues, t know the best The Doctor Says: by EDWIN P. JORDAN, M.D, Two mothers have asked for discussions of what are probably related conditions. One says that her son has been gritting and grinding his teeth at night. The other says that her little daughter constantly blinks her eyes. Now both of these are rather common habU disorders. Grinding the teeth during sleep is particularly common among those children who are overactive in the daytime and perhaps are anxious or Insecure. Hence activity should be curbed and the home life carefully studied to see if there are any factors of insecurity or tension which can be eliminated. It is said that large adenoids may lead to teeth grinding. A child with this difficulty should be examined also for tonsil trouble. BKnking is usually a nervous After re&dng a. consumer should buys in everything from sheets to sailboats, furs to fertilizers, and automobiles to zithers. "Oops" Is a magazine which figures to bring happiness by saving a. man money, and '1 am aura it does Just that for thousands of men. But it hasn't made me happy, .fust the oppisite. The first Issue brought to my door plunged me into melancholia, and succeeding issues have done nothing to lift the gloom. Frankly, I am afraid to read "Oops" any more lest I lose the last remaining shred of respect for my Judgment. It has worked out this way. Nearly all the appliances and gad- rets tested since I started reading* the magazine are already in my jossesslon, And the majority of them have been found by "Oops" to be Inferior to other makes and models that cost no more money, and, In some cases, quit* a bit less. In short, all "Oops" has dons Is make me look like a fool, and a man who wouldn't know quality if it wore a red hat. I'd have been habit and perhaps should be treated in much the same way as leeth grinding. However, it can be the result of irritation or infection in or about the eyes, allergy, or occasionally something else. In both cases the children should be slud'.ed for the presence of possible disease. If none is found, the proper procedure is to try to correct any environmental causes. A problem of a different kind comes from another mother who is concerned about convulsions in children while they are teething. f believe most of those who have studied this quosl-ion tlr> not believe that teething alone can cause convulsions. There are certainly a good many youngsters who have convulsions of (his sort for a while and "outgrow" them. But it is not safe to count on happier with the "She-epherders 1 Journal," or "Cat Breeders' Gazette." I was proud of our few possessions until "Oops" strongly Inferred that I had been a sucker to buy most of them. There's our refrigerator, for one thing. Pretty as a pcture It Is, with, its pastel hide that blends so well with the dining- room andirons. We used to leave the kitchen door open so visitors could see It, but no more. Not since "Oops" informed me that It rocks, rattles, rolls and drips much more than one I could have purchased for $3.2? less. I hate to admit it, but we nave turned against the refrigerator we once held so dear. We don't care whether we close Its door or not, and when it's little Inside light went out I just told it to fix It itself. Th e same Is true of our electric frying pan, with Its wonderful handle that gives the right temperatures for cooking almost anything a man could desre, front pancakes -to perch au gratin. It was mir pet until I learned from "OopH" that it was strictly a second drawer frying pan and should- bow and lug H t its forelock when in the presence of some other makes of frying pans. We have a good mind to give It this and il is not something which I a way, or let the poodle havi it can simply be ignored.

When he for his drinking bowl. And the sheets we are sleeping on! AS for getting our money's worth when we bought them, we might just as well have stitched up some chcken wire.

She wants lo know if there is some- drug that a student might take which would help him to remember for his examinations. This is not really a medical question, but I can assure Mrs. H. that her son is not the only one who has had such an experience. If I could suggest a drug which would do what Mrs. H. wants done, I am sure I should be very popular indeed. Perhaps this boy, I'.ke others, is overly tense for his examinations. It might be helpful if he could realize that the world will not rise and full on his answers and if he goes into his examinations in a somewhat more relaxed frame of nv.nd he might do better. it!
