GOOD MORNING Blessings ever watt on virtuous deeds, , and though alate, a sure reward succeeds. —Congreve.__ Think Back, Judge When Judge Winfield Scott Smith ook occasion to condemn parking meters in Wilmington he overstepped Jie proprieties of his office. This is ' id in kindness, and in the hope that \e judge, who sometimes discusses iatters from the bench in no way re lating to the functions of that court, will not again transgress in a similar manner. Mr. Smith, whom we regard nigmy as citizen and magistrate, was in this ease at fault in his reasoning. He de clared that if parking meters were abandoned there would be more park ing places at downtown curbs. ' If the judge’s memory will serve him right he will recall that before the meters were installed parking space at downtown curbs was at a premium from early morning until after the the aters closed at night. This was due to the fact that car owners who work ed downtown drove into the curb space nearest their place of employment and left their cars there until they were ready to go home. And when they ttent home early theater patrons im mediately took their places at the curb. Since the meters were installed, with their limitation on parking time, shop pers and other persons having business downtown (but not for all day) have usually found space'for parking within easy walking distance of their destina tion. Thus parking accommodations have been more readily obtainable by greater numbers of motorists than be fore the meters came. Some complaint has been heard from time to time that out-of-town mo torists were being tagged by the police and required to go to headquarters and pay a fine or else be taken into court, where costs are added to the fine. The fact is that the police are instructed to place on the windshield of visitors’ cars courtesy cards explaining the traf fic and parking rules and urging the motorists to cooperate with the city in its attempt to serve the motoring pub lic with er,-"’1ete fairness. It is not tne intention that any visi tors’ car shall be tagged, when the car can be identiffed as coming from.be yond the city. There may be some '( exceptions, but the purpose of the police is to afford the visitor every consider ation possible. And the rr '-Up the® to do this. The Budget Adopted There are several significant facts that must be considered in connection with the new city budget and the tax rate finally adopted by the Council yes terday. They were cited by Mayor E. L. White in the statement he read at the Council session, which was attended by a large number of business men and representatives of the Real Estate Board. Among them Mr. White listed the constant increasing cost of operation, the rise in prices of supplies, materials and maintenance obligations, and the shrinkage in revenue, notably the reve nue anticipated from ABC stores. Chief significance, however, lodges in the failure of the Council last year to fix the budget sufficiently high and raise the tax rate enough to meet all requirements of the city government, so that there would have been no need to employ the surplus fund and the capital reserve fund in meeting the City’s obligations during the 1946-47 fiscal year. If this had been done the 1947-48 budget and tax rate would not have had to be raised, the first to $1,503, 232 and the second to $1.80. Shrinking revenues, advancing costs, and the failure of the last Council to make provision for foreseeable increas ed obligations, therefore, made it im perative that the present Council adopt a budget that would permit the City to maintain its economic equilibrium, its efficiency in operation, and prevent a default in its obligations. A city in default would be a city without hope. When the Real Estate Board, through its president, Mr. Frederick Willetts, 'Sr., presented recommendations at yes terday’s session, for reducing the bud get, it overlooked the fact that the City had already made a careful examination of each separate item presented by every department, and pared it to the lowest cost compatable with efficient operation. For this reason, several of the Board’s recommendations, partic ularly those proposing further consoli dation of departments, were shown to be impracticable, both by Mayor White and by speakers from the council cham ber floor. For example, the Board recommend ed abolishment of the office of assist ant city manager, together with the building inspector and purchasing agent, and that the duties of the pur chasing agent be added to those of the city manager, who had been granted the right to employ an assistant because he had already had more work than any man could do. The other proposed consolidations were in a similar pat tern. One proposal, however, is well worth adopting. This is the abolishment of the office of back-tax collector. This office could well be suspended, as the purpose for which it was established has been accomplished. The board’s proposals, on the whole, achieved one good result. They impres sed the Council with the imperative need to practice the strictest economy in administration. In fact, in voting for the budget as fixed, Mayor White sug gested the advisability of bringing in an expert on city government to survey the city’s situation and make such recommendations for economies with out detriment to the city and its ser vices to the people. This would be an advisable move. Whatever savings could be effected during the current fiscal year would leave the city with a surplus, instead of a deficit, and react to the benefit of the taxpayers. An Enviable Record Secretary of War Kenneth C. Royall is setting a most enviable record. By virture of his presence in Washington the other day, during the absence of President Truman and the other Cabi net members eligible for the high honor, Mr. Royall was interim President of the United States. This is the first time North Caro lina has had a President since Andrew Johnson. It is not surprising that the Greens boro News should publish a Washington dispatch reporting that the Democratic National Committee is considering his selection as Secretary of Defense, should Secretary Forrestal desert the Cabinet to become President Truman’s running mate next year. Bevin Proposal Preposterous Because the United States has been so generous in the past it is expected to be even more generous in the future. Having made a huge loan to Great Britain on most liberal terms, Great Britain’s foreign minister, Mr. Ernest Bevins, now proposes that the gold re serve at Foot Jfaaox he distributed i among needy nations (especially Great Britain). One wise British publisher has had the courage to blame Britain’s crisis on the United States loan. If Britain had not been given this relief, he contends, the London’ government would have had to work out the nation’s salvation, instead of coming back for more. Whether this is the whole truth is not for us to say. But it is an estab lished fact that beneficencies, whether they are called loans, doles, or outright charity, invariably breed the desire for more of the same among all recipients. Mr. Bevins’ proposal is so much poppycock. But it serves to illustrate the above statement. It also serves notice on the United States that the time has come to give up the pleasant role of Good Samaritan to the world and conduct its business instead like a business man conducts his, with credit extended only on adequate security. Else, the United States will go bank rupt ultimately just as an. inefficient business man does when he extends credit promiscuously. Bid For Cooperation BY ANNE O'HARE McCORMICK _ Delivered from a platform exemplifying hemispheric solidarity, the President’s defini tion of American policy at Petropolis had un usual force. The idea of Pan-America, united by formal treaty in a common defense sys tem, makes an extraordinary impression on the rest of the world. New, rich, uncrowded, unscarred by wars, in spite of differences and inequalities more cooperative than any area of like size on the globe, this complex of American nations looks extraordinarily powerful viewed from Europe and Asia. When people beyond the Atlantic and Pacific speak of “the West,” they do not think of Europe any more, but of these vast continental is lands stretching from pole to pole. This, as Mr. Truman said, is the future, the New World. The hemispheric bloc is not so strong and solid as it seems, but it is stronger today than ever before, and far more impressive than Americans imagine. Thus when the President of the United States speaks at the inter-American conference in Brazil, his words have more power behind ttfem than if they were uttered in Washington. A foreign policy summed up in that environment, in that atmosphere of agreement, achieves something like the effect of an all-American policy. The four pillars of this policy, Mr. Truman stated, • are the Marshall plan (“economic help to those who are prepared to help them selves and each other”), the obligations un dertaken under the United Nations Charter, the maintenance of military strength and the unity of the American republics against aggression. He made it clear, in other words, that peace would have to be built by all the means available—our own power and resources, unflagging efforts to make the United Nations a going concern and agree ment in this hemisphere. The treaty of Petrop olis sets a precedent for regional pacts with in the United Nations which widens the area of cooperation and, if followed elsewhere, would quicken and strengthen the process of world organization. Bu+ the pronouncement was addressed mainly to Europe, mainly, indeed, to Russia. The President expressed “bitter disappoint ment and deep concern” over post-war devel opments. The failure to make peace, he warred, obliges us to contemplate a pro longed military occupation of enemy terri tory. As Mr. Truman was speaking, the State Department released a reply to the Soviet protest against the decision to raise the level of industry in the American and British zones in Germany which should be regarded as an apt illustration of the speech. For over two years, the note said in rejecting the Russian theses that this action violated the Potsdam agreement, the American Government has been trying to reach accord on matters af fecting Germany as a whole. It is the failure of the Soviet Government to implement the Potsdam pledges that places a heavy finan cial burden on the United States it does not intend to continue. ah-.a punus up inure snaipiy man ueiore the new American policy of trying to reach agreement with Russia if possible and going ahead on our own if necessary. It shows what Mr. Truman means when he declared that we are prepared to carry on military occupation indefinitely. Moscow is not yet prepared to believe that. Soviet delaying tactics are based in part on a desire to keep the world un settled and in part on a conviction that Amer icans will not sustain a long guard in Eu rope and cannot, because of the inevitable depression, carry out a program of economic help to its friends. If this turns out to be wishful thinking, the realists in the Kremlin may decide it is easier to get rid of us by making peace. Moscow’s unexpected ratification of the satellite trea ties, coinciding with the dispatch of replace ments to Italv. might well be a move to hasten the withdrawal of American troops from that area. At any rate, the decision to make the Anglo-American part of Germany self-supporting and use Ruhr production as 'a vital element in carrying out the Marshall plan is a top-level decision. It will not be rescinded. Essential to this plan, however, is the co operation of France. This is recognized by most of the advisers—men like Commissioner Robert Moses and Lewis Brown, chairman of the board of the Johns-Msnville Company— who have been asked by the War and State Departments to survey the German problem and suggest a solution. The reports prepared by these and other observers emphasize that the key to recovery is the Ruhr, that time is running against us and that it is imperative to set up a oncp some new form of manage ment and control. Mr. Moses, for instance, prefers a long-term international Authority to the five-year trusteeship plan favored by Gen eral Clay. Mr. Brown lays great stress on the fact that British' coal *is as much a fac tor in European recovery as Ruhr coal. If the British filled their old role of supplying and transporting coal to Western Europe, he be lieves, half the problem would be solved. All agree that France should be taken into full partnership with Britain and America in the administration of an integrated plan for Western Europe, including Germany. This is to say that the solidarity of the countries in terested in the Marshall program is as es sential to the success of Mr. Truman’ four point policy as the solidarity of the American republics. The significance of the speech at Petropolis is as the first official bid for co operation between the American system and Western Europe.—New York Times.

The independent democratic New York Times and the inde pendent republican New York Herald Tribune agree that Presi dent Truman’s visit to Brazil and his address before the inter-Amer icas Conference at Petropolis were eminently worth whil.e but there is a divergence of opinion as to Mr. Truman’s vision of the Americas’ part, and particularly the part of the United States, in shaping world policies. The Herald Tribune finds that the “enormous and cheering crowds” which cheered President Truman through the streets of Rio, “gave gratifying evidence of the extent to which the undra matic little man from Missouri has succeeded in rebuilding the battered emotional content of the ‘good-neighbor policy.’ . . . Mr. Truman has proved an excellent ambassador to Latin America, and his closing address put* a graceful climax on a conference which marks a useful step for ward in the development of inter American relations.” But it finds that neither the Truman policy nor the Marshall fully envisions the crisis now girdling the earth. ‘Much of what the President prescribes — firmness, armed strength, support for U.N., belief in human rights—is absolutely es sential if we are to meet (the crisis); but much more than these largely negative principles will also be required,” the Herald Tribune comments. ‘‘The urgency of the whole problem is greater than the President seems to sup pose; the vital central issue of Russia demands something far more constructive than the plati tudes he is inclined to bring to it; we cannot always wait on Eu rope, and perhaps we cannot even count on Latin America unless we provide in much greater degree the constructive leadership to which Latin Americans and others might respond.” Of the hemsiphere defense treaty, the Times says the sign ing delegates, r«ft*senting one third of the member nations of the United Nations, had “set an example of good neighborliness and international amity. . .They had given notice that in one-third of the world at least peace will be enforced by common consent and any attempted aggression from without will be met with a united front.” But, turning quick ly from this great accomplish ment of the conference, the Times notes. President Truman moved on to the task that lies ahead smd the great responsibility that rests on the New World. . . to assume the leadership in solving the prob lems of the reef of the world.” This, we take it, is the chief difference between the views of the Herald Tribune and the Times. Whereas the Herald Trib une believes the President incap able of grasping the implications of the world crisis, the Times ob viously attributes to him a clear vision of the world situation. Else he would hardly utter the chal lenging call to service the last quoted words' from the Times in dicate it believes he has. Further approbation of the President's views is to be found in the Times: “The correctness of the President’s approach cannot be questioned. Establishment of hemispheric security is good, but not enough. Mr. Truman invited our American neighbors to go on from that to a joint effort with us in application of the Marshall plan — the announced intention to respect the rights of others and to help themselves. Achievement of that plan is as essential to the other American nations as it is to the United States. They should. be as willing as we are to lend a hand.” The Richmond Times - Dispatch finds that the Rio treaty “serves notice on the world that imperial ism as a national policy is out lawed in the Western Hemisphere, and that those nations which em bark upon such expansion, or serve to aid it, brand Ifcemselves Merger Is Confusing By DOUGLAS LARSEN WASHINGTON — Just when it looked like they had most of the bugs out of the armed forces merger, some capital hostess had to foul up the works in great shape. The afternoon .it was announced that John L. Sullivan, Kenneth C. Royall and W. Stuart Symington, in that order, had been named head of the Navy, Army and Air Force under the new Department of National Defense, this hostess decided to invite them all to a party. When she started arrang ing the seating order of her guests, however, it dawned on her that the order of precedence— protocol—would be changed under the new set-up. The three new ap pointees wouldn’t have the rank of cabinet members. Where should they sit? What would be their po sition in a receiving line? She nervously buzzed the State Department’s protocol office for advice and got the polite answer that because the merger wouldn’t become official until the new armed service’s boss, James For restal, .took the oath, tney would be unable to give an official judg ment until then. The frantic woman then started calling her friends for advice. But all she did was to leave in her telephonic wake a sort of chain consternation, which has since grown into mass hostess - frustra tion. The latest report was that the poor woman had to call off her party and is now resting in a Maryland sanitarium. But it still leaves the problem unsolved. Up until now the order of social precedence has been approximate ly: the President, foreign ambas sadors, Chief Justice, Speaker of the House, Secretary of State, ministers of foreign countries, As sociate Supreme Court Justices, cabinet members, state governors, senators, Chief of Staff. Chief of Naval Operations, five-star gener als and admirals, representatives. Charge d’Affaires and then lesser officials. It has never been settled as to whether ambassadors or the Chief Justice e-o-ao. fca jtHey ibe President with the ■ result no hos tess asks them to the same party. Another problem is what to do with the new Secretary of Nation al Defense at social functions. It is established custom that the newest departments should get last social precedence. The War Department has always had sec ond precedence after the State De partment in the cabinet rankings. And it is guessed that the new cabinet poet will command that old spot at the festive board. But it isn’t official. The person in Washington most eager to get the correct key to the whole puzzle is Caroiyn Hag ner Shaw. She publishes the “So cial List of Washington,"’ a sort of unofficial but highly-regarded social register. Her current edi tion is due to go to press in a couple of days. And she wants to have the right answer for her readers. A guide to the crder of precedence is part of a regular feature in her book. Her only com ment is: “After talking to almost every agency and authority in town, Irm still completely at sea.” Among the experts, who have calmed to the point where they can discuss the thing coherently, it's agreed that it narrows down to whether Messrs. Roy all, Sym ington and Sullivan will sit at din ner or stand in receiving lines on the right or the left of Charge d’Affaires. If. like this writer, you didn’t know, Charge d’Affaires are sort of vice-ambassadors. They of ficially represent a nation when the ambassador is ou‘ of town. Only Mr. Royall, who is now a cabinet member, would get social ly demoted under the new ar rangement. For the other two men, this new proximity to Charge d’Affaires is a theoretical im provement. If the final decision sandwiches the new positions be tween the members of the House of Representatives and the Charges it will probably bring welcome relief to both Repre sentatives and Charges to nave new to talk to at dinner. ag enemies of international order. The hemisphere has set a great example for a world which sorely needs it.” Just In Fun HECKLED The Scot is frequently the goat when jokes are on tap, but not al ways.

Lenient Examination , An Editorial From The Charlotte Observer ii ine percentage reported from Cabarrus county holds for1 the rest of the state, the current re-exam mation for drivers’ licenses will reveal that one person out of eight on the streets and highways of this state does not know how tc drive an automobile. That is the percentage who are failing to pass the examinations in Cabarrus county for reissuance of licenses, and we believe that the average driver in Cabarrus county is as skillful, courteous, careful, and law-abiding as those of any county in North Carolina. It can be assumed, therefore that the 12 per cent of incompe tents in Cabarrus will come very near being .the average for the state. Most of us who have seen driv ers speeding where they should slow down, failing to give them selves time to stop in emergen cies, letting their attention wan der until it-was too late to size up the traffic situation ahead of them, and weaving from one lane o another would have estimated the percentage of incompetents as much higher than 12 per cent These examinations recall a re cent article in the Saturday Eve "»« **'• *» the writer told how he was able to obtain drivers licenses in a large num ber of states by merely writing o the state highway departments *nd enclosing the fee.
