This is the natural reaction of so diors who have fought a will- only lo find there is still no enduring peace. Nor is the situation in thc Near Lasl entirely hopeless. I don't believe Kussiu actually wants war Rul there is a long-time enmity i3cM.ween Russia and Great Britain. Their aims clash in thc Near bast, just as they have clashed for generations there. You have read in Ihis column from lime to time my observation that thc whole point and emphasis of American foreign policy has been, and now is, to play the role of peace-maker between Russia and Britain. We will continue Ihnl role in the present crisis. But such a role invokes certain duties •for our people back home. rit.Tirsl of these duties is to re- Tnain permanently strong, both on sea und land. And only a little behind this is the duty of all our people to keep interested «nd inlormcd about world issues. For Ihe successful peace-maker must be one thai both warring parties respect. A complclely disarmed nation is in no position nowadays to talk lo anybody. * * -K By JAMES THRASHER r Economics and Chance **^Tho world of economics seems To have taken a sudden interest in a book called "Theory of Games and Economic Behavior," which was written by two Princeton professors named Van Neumann and Morgenstern and published 18 months ago. The delayed reaction may be duo to Ihe facl lhal the world of economics has just finished reading the book which, according to reviews, is 025 pages long, crammed wilh formulas, and very deep .gUsh generally. But it mignt also fie that the sudden interest reflects a general suspicion thai the blueprints of long-range economic planning can'l always slcer im- mccliale events in a chosen direction. Brave and learned souls who have read "Theory of Games and Economic Behavior" report the authors have applied to business strategy some mathematical theories that '.hey developed through 15 years of research on Ihe pro- babilily of beating various games j4\i chance and / or skill. To be sure, Drs. Van Neumann and Morgenstern— both eminent mathematicians— have been lo great pains to figure the odds on your chance to rolling snake eyes or converting two pairs inlo a full house. Bui, like so many smart gamblers and unlike so many smart economists, they haven't tried to repeal thc capricious law of chance. From what lillle we know of the ii-ofcssors' theory, we suspect that '" general application might have .. healthy effect on business. We further suspect that it mighl even be helpful in planning a nalion's economic program. Long-range planning is a loose term lhal covers a multitude of sins and techniques in private or government economics. Such planning includes a goal, of course, and- usually a scheme for achieving H. Bui sometimes we find an economic plan whose creators believe thai because Ihcy have faith in their goal and pride in their hon- U'rublo intentions, their methods are accordingly as unquestionable and unshakable as their objective. But it has been demonstrated lhat thc most honest, sincere long-range methods cannot, by these qualities alone, dissolve any unforeseen and unforeseeable obstacles before they come inlo view. Deficit spending didn't achieve the laudable goal of prosperity. Hold- Ihe-line price control didn't produce full postwar production. And so on. , i Bul Ihe champions of deficil spending and hold-lhc-linc price control, because they had their eye on an inflexible objective, clung to an inflexible method long after there was abundant evidence that some change or modification was needed. Perhaps il mighl bo well if our leaders of government, business and labor would realize more consciously that Ihe smart long-range planner's aim is lo wind up thc winner at the end of Ihe game. He doesn't expect to fill every inside '••'-• or take every pot. Hope 47TH YEAR Chamber Asks Industry Fund Star ol; Hooe. 1899: Press. 1927. Consolidated January 18. 1929.

Second Group Hits State Department 'Washington, March 19 — UP) —A Local Union Disputes Hold Up GM Plants Delroil, March 18 —(UP)—The General Motors corporation strike came to an official end today, after 119-days of idleness for 175,000 CIO United Auto Workers. Walter P. .Reuther, UAW vice president in charge of the General Motors Division, announced that more than 90 per ccnl of Ihe union's membership had ralified Ihe National UAW-GM contract. However, the strike will continue in 24 of GM's 92 plants where the union and management have not reached agreements on local issues. These disputes involved about 50,000 workers. Reuther told Harry W. Anderson, GM vice president that local unions "which have satisfaclorily sellled their local demands now stand ready to return to work upon call by their local managements." By United Press The prolonged dispute between Ihe United Automobile Workers (CIO) and General Motors Corporation remained the major barrier today to solution of postwar labor prblems. Resumption of automobile production at the 92 GM plants was prevented by the filing of a score of scallercd local grievances. This snarl developed despite general approval by UAW members of Iheir proposed new contract. More than 75,00 UAW members ratified both national and local agreements and voted to return to work. Approximately 50,000 more approved the new contracl—pro- viding an 18 1-2-cent hourly wage increase — but decided to remain on strike until local issues been settled. have The CIO farm equipment workers ended their walkout against the Oliver Corp., but their strike against International Harvester Company continued.

"There arc some people who are saying lhat we should sever relations wilh Russia," the 71-year-old premier said. "I hope that no view of thai kind will be expressed by anyone in a responsible position." King, solemn and gravefaced, gave a full report in Commons last night on Russian espionage which has confronted his government with "as serious situation as has existed in Canada at any time." King revealed that the espionage ring operated during the war when Canada and Russia were fighting a common enemy. He lold Commons lhal the in- vesligalion of the spy ring, which already has resulted in the arrest of 15 Canadians, including a Communist member of parliament, had revealed thai Soviet agents had sought information of "great and grave import to the United States and Great Britain." "Espionage has been carried on for three or four years in this country," he said. King said he took such a grave view of the situation after learning the details that he immediately" visited President. Truman in'Wash- ington and Prime Minister Allee in London to aprise them of the facts. He even had considered a trip to Moscow to see Premier Josef Stal- in he said, adding that he did not believe the Soviet generalissimo Knew that his espionage agents were operating' in Canada. "I am sure the marshal would not condone such activities," he said, explaining that "circum stances" had forced him to abandon the idea of a visit to the Rus sian capital. King warned the members of Commons hot to be prejudicial of Russia until, all the facts were known, adding that "what has happened here may have been the action of a few men which I am cer tain would not be countenanced by the. Russian people." Documents , "taken from the vaults, of the Soviet embassy" in Ottawa by Igor Gouzenko, a cypher clerk in the office of the Russian military attache, Col, N. Zabpton, formed the basis of the evidence against the spy ring, he said.- •• .,„..

Generalissimo Francisco Franco's government made the charge in a 5,000-word reply to the U. S. State Department's "White Book" on Spanish-German relations.

Wallace invited the wrath of conservatives today with a proposal that Democrats be read out of the party on failure to support vital administration legislation; He said offenders might seek of- lice as independent or even as Democrats, but that party support should be denied them if they re, fu ?ed lo support "must" bills. Wallace discussed stricter party discipline before a luncheon of the Women's National Democratic club. He explained that he would oppose party discipline on minor Hems. But he argued that there are certain propositions which any president musl regard as essential Those who refused to go along, he said, should be denied future support of the party organization.
