Britain will approach sanely the delicate problem of maintaining a posture of strength while being alert to every reasonable prospect of easing world tensions. Under Eden, too, the British will cooperate earnestly and sincerely with the United States and yet show no mark The prime minister must be credited with having pulled :off a shrewd gamble. The Conservatives could have retained power another year without an election. Sir Anthony chose instead to try to capitalize on Labor party divisions and other factors to win now a new five-year hold on the government. Nearly every factor of consequence seemed to be tipped '< !n -RYtem'c favor Britain is eniovinar unexampled prosperity. ! It is closer now than at any time to regaining its old, solid ' economic stature in the world. In the sphere of foreign affairs, they have the hope that ; Eden's acknowledged diplomatic skill and experience may ! YuA-n Wd the west to some sort of settlement with the So viet Union. Four-power talks appear defmitely slated for - this summer, and that assurance cannot nave nurc tne conservatives at the noils. 3 In contrast, the Labor party is at its lowest ebb in many vears. The six vears it held power from 1945 to 1951 ap peared to sap it of all imagination and inspiration. One may iainy say tnat tne party today is DanKrupi, 0i new meas anu programs. ^ ^ On the domestic scene, Labor could offer no more than a resumption of gradual nationalization of industries. There was no sign the British people had any faith such a course would maintain or extend their economic gains. In foreign affairs, the most moderate elements of the Labor party undoubtedly would have followed a line close to the Conservative one. But in an effort to suggest important differences with their opponents, the Laborites recklessly drummed on fears of the H-bomb. In so doing they merely emphasized the emptiness or their own approach. They were especially handicapped by the usual rantings or Aneunn ±*evah, tne party s lert-wmg leaaer. tsy moutn ine anti-American sentiments at top lune power, he sug-gest- ed strongly that a Labor party in power would not find it easy to cooperate with Britain's greatest ally, the United States. The disrupted, mentally barren Labor party was found wanting by British voters. Instead they have put their fresh stamp of approval on a Conservative party that has proved itself in office and promises much for the future — a party that is enlivened Dy young Dioon, Dy vmrant imagination, and by a capacity for achieving stability while still moving ahead m an anxious world. uestions and Answers A— It is against th« law to reproduce a government obligation.

So why not be realistic and show them in picture* a* they are? It's not that simple It has to do with the kids them- Before they reach that age bridge, they are natural and unaffected.

Chicago and Los Angeles is 18 per cent. « For the 14 international and 11 territorial routes the nse averages 10 , FROM THE MONEY A>GLE. the receipts are up 22 per cent for - the trunk lines, 33 per cent for the local feeder lines and 18 per cent ; n international routes. The nine nonmail earners, ceitificated by CAB for freight and harter opeiations. do not share in this boom business. Cargo car-leis have been losing money on scheduled operations. CAB has made a decision on a case which may alter this situation, t is centeied on the existing shortage of equipment to carry the grow-ng tiaffic The Board has been getting many mote lequests than usual for haitei flights, particularly for transatlantic tours. The price range, incidentally, is S16 500 for a Constellation New York to jLonaon up to 520 000 for a DC-6, Xew Yoik at Pans. Under pie\ious mles. certificated carriers had to sublease equipment from nonscheduled operators for these charter flights. The new regulation lets down the bar3. Nonsked or cargo carriers now can get into this business Last year U S airlines had 1150 planes m domestic service and 434 on international routes The airlines have 160 more planes on order for delneiy this year and next. But the pickup in business has been so great it may not be enough. THE NEW FOLR-ENGINE PLANES cost around two million dollar! apiece and take two-and-a-half years to build. This compares with. 100 thousand dollars for a two-engined DC-3 15 years ago. But the four-engined planes of today are cheaper to operate on a passenger-mile or ton-mile basis. Operating revenues of the U. S airlines have risen from 460 million dollars with a net loss of 10 million dollars in 1946 to revenues of of one billion 400 million dollars and profits of 69 million dollars in 1954 From the taxpayers' standpoint, the interesting part is that these figures offer some hope for a reduction in subsidies. In 1954 government subsidies were T3 million dollars. Thts year they are expected to run about 65 million dollars For the next fiscal year beginning July 1 they have been budgeted at 62 million dollars. Subsidies are divided four million dollars for the domestic trunk lines, 25 million dollars for the local feeder lines, three million dollar! for the hehcopteis and 30 million dollars for international routes. NINE OF THE DOMESTIC trunk lines, carrying 95 per cent of the traffic, are now subsidy-free The four receiving subsidies are Bramff, Colonial, Continental and Northeast. Trans-World Airlines has opeiated its foreign services without subsidy since 1953 Nonskeds get no subsidy. A numoer of leasons are gnen for the increase in commercial a\iation business The winter w-eather was exceptionally good. Service was dependable. Airlines ha\e had a record safety year. Flying nas almost as safe as railroading and 30 times safer than automobiles. Air fatalities were only 0.09 per hundred million passenger milee. There were no fatalities on U. S. international lines. Air fares are less than three per cent higher than in 1941. Coach fares are four-and-a-quarter cents a mile, first class six cents, interna* tional five-and-a-half to seven. The pay-later plan has boosted tourist traffic. Thirty-five per cent of the traffic is now coach service, introduced m 1948. In 10 years it may be 75 per cent. \f oppyi\/r
