But the world is at homo this Christmas. Families are once more gathered around the fireside. Nations are drawn inward, each to its own. A year ago the futility of war was impressed on millions with first-hand experience. The desire fur home and. peace and security was fanned by the enchantment o£ thousands of miles that lay between lonesome men and their goal. But now that the world is finally at home what docs this Christmas mean in terms of future good will and pence throughout the world? Throughout all recorded history it has been the same unvarying story: Men have disregarded the leaching of Him whose birthday Ihc world observes Ihis Wednesday, have gone away lo fight, and whether victorious or defealcd have finally tired of it and returned home—only to forget and do it all over again.

What did the delegates accomplish with their 20,000,000 words (not counting translations)? They volcd for an arms reduction and atomic energy control plan with no veto power for anyone. They recommended that each UN government, withdraw its chief envoy from Spain. They set up a Trusteeship Council. The delegates also formed the International Refugee Organizaloin and decided that relief should now be left to individual countries, with a UN Commission reporting on needs. They defined genocide (the extermination of racial groups) as an international crime, and condemned racial and religious discrimination. More practically, they admitted Sweden, Iceland, Afghanistan and Siam to their midst agreed upon a budget, and decided on a permanent site for the UN's home. There isn'l a greal deal of concrete accomplishment in the eight weeks' work. But the General Assembly's efforts do indicate Ihc drift of world opinion upon some of Ihc vital mailers affecting world survival. And the drift seems lo be in the right direction. At least, Ihe Assembly has come out against some formerly accepted abominations, and has shown itself representative of governments and peo pics which are not without compassion. There was plenty of bickering and bitterness during the Assembly's session. But there was also the spectacle of Russia's Mr. Molotov making the tremendously heartening announcement that his govern ment would not insist on a veto control of decisions on alornic power control.

There will be national discussion of President Truman's universal training program. In that discussion the Communists will be jniquo on two counts. First -heirs s the only political parly in the country which is unanimous on the subject. Communists are unanimously against universal training. And, second, they arc against it Because the Communist parly line ncludes the significant point that party liners shall do their utmost LO make the United Stales as weak ns possible. As weak as before Pearl Harbor, for insUn'cc. Opposition to such training is, actually, a comparatively obscure part of the Communist parly line. The line ilself was sel out point point over the weekend in the Communist Sunday worker, a newspaper published in New York City where the party has achieved its strongest political position and is able to elecl candidales lo both municipal and national office The Sunday Worker reported a parly line of "immediate" action as laid down by Eugene Dennis, general secretary ol the Communist party. Mosl of the Dennis program, especially those paragraphs relating to wages, laxes, housing, labor, veterans, social security, health and agriculture, is a combination of generally acceptable objectives and Communist gimmicks. The program of any well run and patriotic labor union would contain much of the material Dennis presents under those headings. The less-adulterated Communist party line begins to appear when Dennis reaches public ownership. He would have the government lake over control of the food in dustry, especially meat and diary processors, and seize railways, mines, gas, electricity, water gas and other such installations and industries. These. Dennis explained, would be operated under democratic controls. Point No. 11 in the parly line proposes Ihe criminal prosecution Shopping of the major steel, chemicals, i'uel, j!oud, and transport corporation^ anc their munagemcnts on yencra charges of wartime profiteering. Point. No. 12 proposes universal and immediate disarmament, reduction of American national defense expenditures to pre-war levels and prohibition of the manufacture and stockpiling of Ihe atomic bomb. Dennis also would have the governmeni seize the "armaments industry," although he did not do- fine il.

Johnson told Compton lhal Con- jress "is almosl equally divided on Ihe advisability of military con- scriplion," adding thai the commissions' report "might tip Ihe scales."

"I want thai word 'military 1 left out," the chief executive asserted.

WARD The this year the Supreme a case involving 1,200 Washington, Dec. 23 —(/P)- nited States Chamber of Com ncrce disclosed plans today to larshal its 2,000 member organ- ations behind a drive in Congress relieve employers from possible porlal-to-portal" pay liabilities ating back to 1938. Spurred • by the snow-balling laims of workers in mass produc- on industries for pay—at twice ormal overtime rates—for travel nd other non-production time not itherto paid for, the chamber will ubmit a referendum Friday to its ntire membership. These members in turn will poll ome 30,000 companies on a series f proposed amendments to the air labor standards act of 1938. It is this act which makes the iack-pay suits possible. It eslab- ished a 44-hour week for the first a 42-hour week in the second r'ear, then a 40-hour week after 940 for employes engaged in producing goods' for interstate commerce. Earlier lourt—in _ IIO United Pottery workers at Ml. Clemens, Mich.—held that em- ployes arc entitled to pay ipr time spent preparing for their jobs on company property. (This became known as the por- .al-to-portal decision, because of .he contract arrangement John L. Lewis won for his coal miners, covering pay for time spent in traveling from the pit mouths to the scene of actual digging operations.) In the Ml. Clemens case, the court ruled that the Pottery workers had been putting in more than 40 hours a week since 1940 and hence had extra time coming to them at overtime rates. Under the law these automatically are doubled when the employe has to go to court to collect. The amendments to the fail- labor standards act which the chamber of commerce hopes to present to Congress with the 'overwhelming support of American business would: 1. Limit to some period, less than eight years, the time during which employers could be held liable retroactively. ... 2. Define clearly what occupa- ations are in Interstate Commerce and thus covered by .the act. v - .. 3. Validate ' compromise " settlements with groups of workers for back pay under the decision. Both the chamber and the National Association of Manufacturers want specific legal standing for possible settlements with "nions representing their employes . because at present all claims are on an individual basis, even though they are lumped together for purposes of court actions. Following up with 6 lo 2 Supreme Court decision in the Ml. Clemens case, unions have filed claims for upwards of $450,000,000 in behalf of employes thus far. And the end is far from in sight. Some estimates say a total of $6,000,000,000 may be Yuletide Program Held at Hospital at Hot Springs Hot Springs, Dec. 23 —(/P)— A colorful yuletlde program, depicting the nativity in song and story, will be held for the 18th ; consecutive year in Hot Springs Christmas Eve.
