In fact, he may not even recommend such controls. The inflation picture has changed somewhat in recent months. The frightening, uncontrolled rise appears to have died down to some extent. If the president feels that there is still enough inflation in the nation's economic sails to justify special controls, he may recommend new measures. However, it is a little late now to talk about partial rationing and price controls. Those proposals are so old they are mildewed. The president would hardly be well- advised to send them to congress again. Even if" Mr. Truman does send them, there is little chance that the new congress would accept them. After all, the republicans and conservative southern democrats can still combine to outvote the Truman democrats. That fact means that Mr. Truman will be able to get through only those things which all the democrats—northerners and southerners—are willing to accept—and those things do not include partial rationing and price controls. *x "W TV DIPLOMAT VINSON — The speculation that Chief Justice Fred M. Vinson might become secretary of state or even President Truman's special emissary to Moscow is not as wild as first reactions indicate. When word leaked out that the president was considering sending Vinson to Moscow for a direct appeal to Stalin, most observers were shocked. They assumed that the president acted only on the theory that as an outstanding jurist Vinson would be free of suspicions of political bias. However, a search of the record reveals that Vinson is not without diplomatic experience. His talents in that direction were revealed in 1944 when he went to Bretton Woods for the conference which produced the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. The American delegates headed by Assistant Secretary of State Dean Acheson found Vinson most valuable. They called him in regularly as a trouble shooter and he consistently got the wrinkles ironed out. Vinson was especially successful with the Russians who, it must be admitted, were more co-operative than now. He talked tough and made headway with them—and had their respect. * # X• CHANGE OF SCENERY—One of the quirks resulting from the democratic election victory is the changed status of Senator Elmer Thomas (D), Oklahoma. The senator was under GOP fire on his reported commodity market speculations. Thomas now will become a high-ranking majority member of the appropriations committee, which touched off the market gambling probe in the first place. He will also resume his pre-'4G chairmanship of the senate agriculture committee. The impact of the change on members of the appropriations committee staff remains to be seen. It can be expected that Thomas will use his greatly-increased influence to oust any who participated in the committee's probe of himself and his friends. On the other hand, the Ferguson investigating committee staff has a chance of escaping democratic ire. For, so far as Thomas is concerned, it was Chief Counsel William P. Rogers of that committee who was at least partly responsible for blocking the Thomas probe. Rogers argued vigorously to Chairman Homer Ferguson (R), Michigan, that the committee had no authority to delve into affairs of legislative officials—that its scope was limited to executive branch personnel. New chairman of the Ferguson committee probably will be Senator John L. McClellan (D), Arkansas, who so far has not expressed dissatisfaction with the course steered by the committee staff.

Methfessel and daughters, Mary and Madalynn, and son, Dean, left by motor for Miami, Fla., from which point they will fly to Portau-Prince, Haiti, for a visit with friends, and to Kingston, Jamaica, and Havana, Cuba.
