Voice Of The Press STRIKES AND TROOPS (Cincinnati Enquirer) Ax a pructcial measure when all others fall, the use of .United States troop* to insure the 'reopening or continuation of national, defense production is not only proper • but necessary. This was true in the case of th« North American Aviation plant on the vest coast, when • Communist-dominated' union sabotaged production several months ago. and it was true again in the case of the labor impasse at Bendix, N, J., where strife threatened to throttle the_production of-essen- ,'Ual parts for military airplanes. / In the first instance where United States soldiers were used, the action was necessitated by the conduct of envplaye*. In this latest instance, the key to the impasse is claimed to be the intranstgeance of th« management of Air Associates.

Thanks to the firm buiLunr»K». vocative manner in which the troops have carried out their, missions, and the reasonableness of the emergency operating policies they have carried into effect, the result in each case has be*n quite favorable. And in each case national defense production 'Jias resumed. Whether or not the use of United States troops becomes a settled or regular policy of the government in dealing .with seemingly irreconcilable disputes depends-, - of course, upon various factor*.

Dugan snapped, "he's got another guess com- ng" "What are we (joLng to tell the wolves in there. Coach?" "What can we say?" retorted Dugan uncomfortably. "They've seen the papers.
