THOUGHTS The end of all IcarninK is to know God, and mil of that know- Mge %• love and imitate Him.—John Milton. Price-Fixing Politics T HE head of the nation's largest larm organization, Charles B. Shuman, president of the American Farm Bureau Federation, wants price-support levels removed from party platforms in the interest both of.the farmer and the nation. He believes that the cause of the farmers' troubles can be traced directly to "political price fixing" and it will take a long time to work it out. "It is not only dangerous from the standpoint of agriculture to see who can promise the highest level ot •upport, but I think it would be disastrous to the party that gets in power to promise higher and higher supports," Shuman said at the bureau's thirty-seventh annual convention in Chicago. "The party committed to high fixed supports would feel obligated to put them into effect, that would result in farm income going down •nd surpluses continuing to accumulate." The bureau has been a strong supporter of a flexible price-support program. Its position is that a surplus of ••political demagoguery" has helped create a surplus of farm products. Well aware of the plight of the farmer, the bureau feels that farm bloc members of Congress of both parties are creating a situation of hysteria to win votes. Political price rigging won't cure the farmer's ills. It adds to them. George E.

Export Risk Hedge A new weapon in the cold war advocated by Senator A. S. Mike Monroney is a credit guarantee to American exporters to protect them against the risks of war, revolution, expropriation and confiscation. In his opinion, it would encourage trade to unsettled regions, where raising the standard of living would help combat Communist infiltration. Monroney, who recently returned from a foreign tour, apparently had his eyes wide open, like the good newspaper reporter he was before embarking on a congressional career. He found foreign nations competing fpjr international trade protecting their exporters from abnormal losses. He wants our government to set up an Export Guarantee Corporation that would insure against credit risks up to a billion dollars. It may be that such a plan could be justified as part of the war for men's hearts and minds in the world struggle for survival. A scientist says America h;is cnouKli coal to 7,5,000,000 years. Doubtless, with the apartment janitor's help. Silent Night, Fatal Night Christmas is no time for tragedy to visit us on the highways and in the home. But just the same il does— all too frequently. Last year, in a r )4-hour period I'l-om the night before Christmas Eve until midnight Christmas night, 515 people were killed in accidents in this country. Most, of course, died in traffic mishaps. Put together heavy travel, the gay spirit of the holidays, icy or slippery roads and the extra hours of winter darkness and you have the ingredients for tliis kind of tragedy. Every year the National .Safc(\' Council and others have issued their warnings. Init tliey do not scorn to register. But what else can anyone do but warn again: Be careful — extraordinarily careful. Watch road and traffic conditions like a hawk. Don't get carried away by the Christmas spirit or you may not live to enjoy it again. Treasury Secretary George M. Iluniplircy is quietly mobilizing business and political sentiment against the Democrats' demiind lor a sizable tax cut that i.s sure to bp voiced on Cnpilol Hill in a re-election year. He believes that ho made headway on this admittedly unpopular issue. JmosL every economist including the prac- licai and theoretical experts, liberals and conservatives, has advised against such a move in conferences with the Trea;sury, the Federal Reserve anfj Congressional Committees. Rarely have so many divergent specialisl.s been so unanimous. Their principal objection, which accords with Humphrey's views, is that its inl'lalionary effect would boost a price level that is already top-heavy. An increase in the cost of living would more than offset the benefits of a tax reduc- lion, according to ihiis .school. 11 would lead to demands for compensatory wage increases from the united AFL-CIO. It would place farmeis at an even greater disadvantage, increasing their expenditures when their income is reaeliing a postwar low. It would upset the economy in what may prove to be the nation's mo .sl prosperous, in Humphrey's opinion. * * • TREASURY SECRETARY'S IDEA — Secretary Humphrey advances alternative uses of any treasury surplus in dtscus.sions at Cabinet levels. He prefers (1) to balance the budget, and i2i to make a start at reducing the 280 billion-plus public debt. Ho seeks to fix a precedent for lifting the national mortgage. He feel.s that, if this Administration sets a prurient example in this fielci, Eisenhower's successors, whether Republicarr .s or Democrats, will feel duty-bound to follow ii. Barring a major war or a serious depression. Trca.sury analysl.s think that the public debl can be bought below 200 billions in a decade. * * * CO-OPFRATIVE DEMOCRATS — Humphrey, incidentally, is pleasantly surprised by the support he has received from leadins: Tax Cut Opposition Democrats on and off Capitol Hill. So far, none of their three leading: Presidential candidates ha.s voiced any desire for a vote- eatciiint!: tax reducation. In fact, Adiai E. Stevenson has declared against it. Representative Daniel A. Reed of New Vork, former chairman of the House Ways and IMcans Committee, will resist such an attempt at the 1956 session. So will Representative Wilbur Mills. Arkansas Democrat and an Influential figure on Ways and iMenns. On the Senate side, it is expected tliat the Der.i.cruts' iinuncial and tax expert. Senator Harry V. Byrd of Virginia, will support Humphrey. Although listed as a liberal and an advocate of more spending on health and education, Senator Paul H. Douglas of Hiinois urges caution on this question. * * * ARGUMENT OF HOUSE DEMOCRATS — But the anti-la.v-cutter.s will face tremendous opposition, header! by Speaker Sam Rayburn. Under his leadership, the lower body hiked exemptions from SCOO to S700, but Senate Democrats did not even report it trom committee. House Democras, as well as many Republicans, will cr)unler with a tax reduction bill at the expense of foreign aid funds. Humphrey and Budget Director Rowland R. Hughes have slashed this total to a new low of $2.7 billion, but the vote-minded bloc will try to keep the figure at .$2 billion or less. They will argue that American taxpayers should be placed ahead of foreign beneficiaries, especially in view of their remarkable economic recovery. Many saw first -hand evidence of their comeback on overseas inspection trips during the summer recess. 11 Eisenhower and Humphrey stick to their rigid program, barring a pocketbook gesture in ,1 national election year, il will be a refreshing Ijolitical novelty and a rare demonstration of rouragc at Washington. However, with their insistence on maintenance of lower farm support prices, it may l)o c )uestionable politics. But they seem willing to make the gamble. Fortunately as the Chri.stma.s season approaches, Madame Chiang Kai-Shek'a little book, "The Sure Victory," appears in the book shops and no better Chri.stmas book has been written in recent years. I recall the girl, Meiling Soong, who breezed into Shanghai from Wellesley, whose major interest was poetry In English. She had been in the United States much of her life, having been sent to Macon, Georgia, to stay witli Bishop Ainsworth there to be reared as an American girl, v 'shc was a Southern, as her mother had been. Her father, Charles .Fones Soong, had always lived in the United States, he first coming to attention at the age of 10 as a cabin boy on the U. S. Revenue Cutter, Colfax, Charles Jones, captain. He was baptized In Wilmington. North Carolina and later peddled hammock.s on the roads of southern states, studying at Duke University and later at Vanderbilt In Nashville. He was sent to China to teach and Bible a.s a missionary. He settled in Shanghai. Some of his students have told me that he was a brilliant English teacher. Meiling Soong, before and since sTie married Chiang Kai-Shek, has been a devout Christian. Her mother converted Chiang to Christianity which changed him from a u.sual Chinese militarist to an ardent social reformer. As T have known him in both of his life, I speak not from hearsay but of the miracles that are wrought in personality by prayer. Meiling Soong wrote this little book, "The Sure Victory," about prayer and then thought that ft should not be publLshed. But friends intervened and here Is what she says: "I had (Treat hesitancy about writing this message, fo several reasons. One is that I do not want to give the impression that I am a better Christian than I am. After considerable thouirht I came to the conclusion that no one who has had a unique experience with prayer has a right to withhold it from others. Resides. 1 believe thirt the main line of attack agaiast the evils of today is in my hands and In yours—In prayer." This is the story of a small prayer group on the Island of Formosa Few human belng .s have, passed through all the hells that have been Mailing Soong 's life since she left off writing poetry and entered upon a public career with her hltt- band. Added to all her woes is an illness, picktd up in the tropics, which r?'curs and forces her to take refuge in American hospitals for prolonged cures. Nevertheless her faith has grown. She says: "Perhaps F .'-hould exi)lain a little further what I mean by a ?iominal Christian. In my mind, I acceplcrl tiiuiueslionably and unreservedly the divinity of Christ, His teachings and His grace. I believed, loo. thai .lesus came to the world to alone for sinners, but frankly this meant little to mo. Although he died for me, he also died for everybod.v. Thi.s fact, therefore, had no personal significance, II was like enjoying a cool breeze on a hot summer day. Everybody enjoyed it who felt it. The breeze was nothing personal; it was just there. I was grateful for it but not inordinately so, As far as being a sinner was eoneerned, evei'ybody was a sinner and certainly my sins were no more wicked than lhr)se of the average person. This* is what I mean by acce|)tance in my mind, instead of a truly i)ersonal experiencing of fafth." And this she answ(>r.s: "As my own faith has grown through nicdiatio^is and fresh understanding, a deeper meaning has come of our prayers togctlip er. Many a lime a feeling of .spiritual peace seems to exude from within me, bringing completely annihilated self, with the mind in quiet and continuous absorption in the keen contemplation of God. When in this state, one Is practically oblivious to the calls of this world, likes and dislikes, honor and name, hate and love." This little book is inspiring and was written during the past few months when, for a Chinese, it took courage and fortitude to have fafth in the future. The little episode of Canada 's proposal to admitting the Red Chinese province of Mongolia into the United Nations must have aroused the anxiety of all on Formosa. • But there is no lessening in her fafth in the mei'cy and miracles of Gorl. 25 YEARS AGO Treasurer William Wagner mailed out the rest of the tax bills, bringing the total to $25,000. They will be distributed as fast as the mails—Sea,sonally heavy—will permit. A display that is attracting unusual attention is in Bechberger and Kubach's drug store. A miniature Santa Claus and sled are seen to disappear and appear at regular intervals, and dash across a snow covered window. 10 YEARS AGO Sixteen freighters are now moored at the Lower Lake Dock here, comprising the largest fleet ever to winter here in the history! of the company. Superintendent George Johnson reported.
