Traffic Lights Needed Adequate control of traffic is as im portant in the development of a city and the security of its people as the smooth flow thereof. Wilmington is remiss in both, particularly in installing signals at certain intersections. Two intersections illustrate the admini stration’s failure to provide lights, the one because of many collisions and the other because of traffic jams during peak hours. There are others, of course, but these serve to point the argument that the City Hall is not doing its full duty toward traffic. Sixth and Princess needs a light, and it should be installed without delay. Scarce ly an hour, day or night, passes without some kind of accident there. Princess is a through street, Sixth a stop street. There are stop signs, to be sure, on Sixth, but they are low and non-reflec+ing. Drivers ap proaching Princess often either fail to see them or forget their existence, with the re sult that side-swipes and more serious col lisions are frequent, especially after dark. Fifth and Princess too needs a light. Both Fifth and Princess are through streets, but for the safety of traffic on both stop signs are placed on Fifth. This means that when cars are thick on both, as they are mornings, noons and nights, motorists on Fifth are held up for many minutes and must whip across Princess with maximum pick-up during secondary intervals between ears in the Princess street crowded traf fic. The advantage is all with drivers on Princess street and the handicap upon all on Fifth. There is a smooth flow in two di rections only, not in four, as it should be, and could be, if traffic at this intersection were controlled by red and green lights. During the war it was claimed that the eity could not extend its traffic light sys tem because lights covld not be bought. Now that the war has been over two years it might be possible to buy additional lights and provide the control, safety and smooth traffic flow not only at these spots but others throughout the eity where they are needed. Russia And Spain No one possessed of a fair mind who has followed the course of events in Spain un der Franco’s dictatorship doubts that a real istic democratic or most any other form of government would be better for the nation and its people. But it is not to be doubted that the kind of democracy Russia has had in mind since it first proposed a change would drive Spain into greater despair than has existed since Franco came into power. For Russian democracy is but an other name for totalitarianism "Under which free elections are impossible. It is no wonder, then, that the United States refused to vote when these Russian sponsored revamped resolutions were rail fcoadec^hrough a United Nations committee providing for setting up a democracy at Madrid. There is not only the steadfast be lief in this country that the Spaniards them selves should determine the form of gov ernment under which they wish to exist, as should all peoples. It is recalled that Rus sia fought on the losing side in Spain’s civil war and that whatever influence Rus sia might bring to bear in Spain would be inspired by vengefulness and in the interest of communism. Whatever wrongs the Spanish people suffer under Franco, and they are many, would be multiplied if the Russians gained the upper hand. Europe would count an other Hungary, Yugoslavia, Romania, if Moscow’s voice prevailed at Madrid. It is to the credit of the nineteen other nations which joined with the United States in refusing to vote for the Russian proposal. Six Billion Tax Cut The Committee for Economic Develop ment, which is headed by Paul C. Hoffman, president of the Studebaker Corporation and lists several of the • country’s business and economic leaders in its membership, proposes a general tax reduction program over a period of years, with an initial cut of six billion dollars in 1948 — the calendar, not the fiscal, year. In its lengthy report the comiriittee de clares this would not interfere with needed foreign aid and that there would be a sur plus of three billions in the nation’s revenue which could be applied to the national debt. Three major proposals for the 1948 schedule are: 1. A lower scale of income tax rates, reaching 67.3 per cent at $100,000 of taxable income (now 84.55 per cent) and a top rate of 83 per cent at $1,000,000 and over. This would cost the treasury $3,000,000,000. 2. Granting to all married couples the privilege of dividing their income for tax purposes, as in the 13 community-property states; this would cost $750,000,000 of reve nue. 3. Lengthening the period for which business losses may be carried forward and applied against future profits from two years to five; reduction of the carry-back from two years to one. In summarizing the report the Associat ed Press notes the committee’s budget esti mates were based not on the usual admini strative budget but on the “consolidated cash” budget, which reflects only actual cash income and outgo and omits exchanges of funds within the government. For 1948 a partial step can be taken, it said, by dropping the individual tax rate to 15.2 per cent, wiping out the excise levies on transportation and communication, and making a start toward eventual elimination of the “double taxation” of corporate divi dends; that is, the taxing of a corporation’s earnings as well as the dividends paid to stockholders. It is not desirable to decide on tax cuts until “early next year,” the report suggest ed, since by then it may be possible to gauge inflationary pressures more accurately and reckon the first-year cost of the Marshall plan. The latter is estimated at $5,750,000, 000 in calendar 1948 by Mr. Truman’s Citi zens’ Committee on Foreign Aid. If the committee’s schedule should be carried out, and it is not to be supposed so distinguished a group reached its conclu sions by snap-judgment, there would have to be a heavy reduction in federal spending. We would have to give up the wasteful and extravagant habits of the war period. This is a consummation devoutly to be wished. Vice Presidential Possibilities Washington political circles of the dem ocratic persuasion appear to be giving con siderable thought to a running mate for President Truman in next year’s presiden tial election — or at least indulging in con siderable speculation on the subject. The United Press itames several men in public life who are being linked with Mr. Truman. Chief among them is Secretary of State Marshall. Despite his blunt declara tion that he wants no political office he is eyed in some quarters as a “draft” prospect for the vice presidential nomination. It may be mentioned paranthetically that if the Republicans should nominate either General Eisenhower or General Mac Arthur, Secretary (General) Marshall might give either of them a harder fun for their money than Mr. Truman, as he was Chief of Staff during the war and had a large part in plotting their campaigns. It would be interesting to see which general could outplot the other in a political campaign. The United Press notes that Chief Just ice Fred M. Vinson is numbered among the Democrats available for a place on the dem ocratic ticket with Mr. Truman. We in cline to the belief that Mr. Vinson is quite content to preside over the Supreme Court. Others in the UP list are Secretary of Defense James Forrestal of New York, Secretary of Commerce W. Averell Harri man, also of New York, and Secretary of Agriculture Anderson of New Mexico. Probably the United Press has not heard about it yet, but there is a move ment in Georgia to create sentiment for former Governor Ellis Arnall of that state for the place. Governor Arnall has a clear insight of the nation’s and the South’s situa tion, domestically and internationally, but as it is the custom to nominate for vice presi dent a man who may be relied on to win votes in a doubtful region he is not likely to be considered by the convention steerers. The South is too solidly democratic. It looks more and more as though the United States will have to accept a two world concept when we have been working for a one-world plan. — Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower, Army Chief of Staff. We no longer can visualize a Communist as a bomb-carrying, bawhiskered madman in heavy boots. Today he is streamlined in all kinds of guises sometimes behind a demo cratic front. — Tom Clark, U. S. Attorney General As Pegler Sees It By WESTBROOK PEGLER Copyright by King Features Syndicate, Inc. NEW YORK, Nov. 13.—I have just re ceived a letter from an old comrade ox Danny Kaye, the great morale-builder of the movies, who served in the war with him for almost three-quarters of an hour in Grand Central Palace on Dec. 31, 1948. Grand Central Palace was the big store of the draft, the plant in which all the dif ferent groups” as Eleanor the Great, with lofty objectivity, refers to the lower orders of the human race, were stripped to naked ness and, in this dignified 'condition, an swered freedom’s call. After some preliminary . remarks, Mr. Kaye’s old sidekick in the no-hundred and nothingth battalion of nothing, begins: “This brings us to Danny Kaye and back to Dec. 31, 1943. T „ , . “I being a resident of East New York, ad joining Brownsville, (which is the old home grounds of the beloved, in a manner of speaking, ‘Kid from Brooklyn’) was regis tered with draft board No. 229 (Danny Kaye’s board). I had just turned 18 and was being drafted. I will never forget that day. We were to report to the local board, Sutter and Warwick, or Ashford, street. As we waited around for all the fellows to show up, we were informed that Danny Kaye was registered in this board and would be at Grand Central with us. “I suppose it was a little too early in the morning or maybe he didn’t like to ride the subway, because he didn’t go with us, but arrived at the palace later on, as we sat in the auditorium and were being briefed on what was to come, it was only natural the fellows were trying to pick Danny Kaye out. Which they finally did. Although it wasift a laughing Danny we saw. He gave no re sponse to guys hollering out his name. He seemed very annoyed and just sat motion less. “About three-quarters cf the way through is when I next spotted him. I hardly rec ognized him. He had had his shoulders on— that is to say a well padded suit etc., but now we were all stripped to our shorts. There was about three other fellows in front of me waiting for the next doctor. And here was Danny Kaye, putting on prob ably his best performance yet. “The doc would tell him to bend from the waist. As he did this he gave out with a cry and immediately straightened up as if to say it was impossible to do.” Possibly that is what his local board, No. 229, had in mind when it rejected unani mously a request from the U.S.O. that Danny be permitted to go out as an en tertainer and insisted that he would go in a soldier suit or not at all. The board wrote: “Neither his physical nor his mental condition or attitude ten$s to show that the morale of the armed forces would be benefitted by his performance be fore them as a civilian.” “He then commenced to explain some thing to the doc,” says Danny’s old buddy of somewhat less than an hour in the war against the savage barbarian hordes for the preservation of human liberty. “After which the doc pressed his back with his fingers but only to hear Danny sign again. By this time, another doctor came over and started examining us. Soon after, I was through with that section and started to move on when I got my last glance at ‘the Kid from Brooklyn.’ He was atiempting a knee bend but had lost his balance unrealistically. If this was his talent that was supposed to have lifted our morale overseas, I was glad I never heard or saw of him while in the service.” Well, that is the way it goes in the rough and-ready banter of fighting men. This chap went on to do his bit in the dumb crude way of "all the different groups,” but Danny went to Fort Jay for some careful check ing and the word came back which caused his local board to comment on his “mental attitude.” And after a while Danny's whole draft file vanished permanently from the jurisdic tion of the boards and he devoted himself unmolested to esthetic works. He is most esthetic when he plays blubber-lip and emits a highly spiritual sound something like the drooling of a committed idot in a lunatic asylum. Like Frankie Boy Sinatra, another fero cious, though vicarious fighter against the bloody-handed Hun, Danny Kaye was de nied his chance to visit the zones of war until they were mere tourist areas. Like Frankie Boy, also, he developed aggressive social and political ideas. Frankie Boy, gave $7,500 to Roosevelt’s fourth campaign fund and developed a case of 4-F ear-drum but he came right to the water’s edge, in New York, in May, 1946, only a year after it ended, and fearlessly denounced double talking diplomats at a show under the au spices of the Independent Citizens’ Commit tee of the Arts and Sciences. If you want to know how many times this committee has been cited as a front by the Dies and Thomas Committees in official reports to Congress, you will just have to look it up yourself. However, Frankie Boy’s manager, George Evans, says that thereafter he put himself under the political guidance of two report ers who are expects on communism and agreed not to mess around with any outfit which they disapproved. It shows Frankie Boy’s wonderful political grasp and wisdom. About the same time, Frankie Boy snarl ed menacingly at Ashton Stevens, of the Chicago Herald-American, who is rising 80 years, because Mr. Stevens had called his bobby-soxers “morons.” Frankie spoke very affectionately and protectively about his be loved little blabbity-blabs, as Danny Kaye would call them. He regards them as in nocent American girlhood, but, by a curious difference of opinion, Mr. Stevens thinks of them as several million sexually excited specimens of jail-bait. Mr. Stevens adds that Frankie Boy is always on guard to protect his precious name because when the little morons seem to be wanting nothing but his autograph, actually, they are “trying to tear his clothes off.” Sordid, isn’t it? But that’s life. Danny Kaye was one of those glamorous gods of the unreal world of romantic en chantment who flew to Washington to pro test against the undemocratic procedure of the United States Congress in proving that certain Hollywood communists were com munists. Back in his beginning days he made comical faces and went “blabbity blibbety-blub” in a show produced under the political auspices of the new masses. It is too near closing time for me to try to explain to you the politics of the new masses. But if you go out and bet the rent that it isn’t anti Joe Stalin, you are shot with luck. G’bye now!

POMPEII Today And Tomorrow BY WALTER LIPPMANN Cold War And Marshall Plan The anti-American campaign in Europe feeds principally upon a misrepresentation of the Mar shall plan—namely that it is a scheme which will perpetuate the division of Europe and the partition of Germany. Unfortun ately too many Americans are playing right into the hands of this anti-American propaganda by presenting it as a kind of lend-lease operation in the cold war. They have, I believe, mis understood the plan which the European governments worked out in Paris in response to Sec retary Marshall’s suggestion. This misunderstanding en ables the Russians to misrepre sent it, and if the misunder standing is not cleared up, the plan will become unworkable. As one Englishman said to me: “If your money is to be had only by dividing Europe, we are like thirsty men in a ship-wreck who drink salt water, knowing that it will drive them mad.” Ameri can diplomacy in Europe will be defeating American aid to Europe. If on the other hand, the Marshall plan is presented truthfully and accurantely to the world, and our diplomacy co-or dinated with it, the anti-Ameri can campaign will fail. For the United States will be the sponsor of an immensely generous and disinterested plan to bring peace and happiness to mankind. S - The fact of the matter is that the European governments which are participating in the Paris program assume the eco nomic unity of Europe, the re duction of political barriers to commerce and mutual aid be tween eastern and western Eu Uncertainties BY PETER EDSON I wAsmiNuiuPi, — if the two volume, 15,000-word report on tile Marshall Plan from the Har riman Committee of 19 big busi nessmen proves anything, it is that there is nothing definite about the European Recovery Program. The State Department is pre senting its ideas to Congress this week. Then the President must be heard from in his special message to Congress, Nov. 17. Finally, the Congress must act. It will be spring before the real sap of recovery starts to flow. If a U. S. government cor poration or commission is set up and is in business supervis ing European recovery by the beginning of the next fiscal year on July 1, it will be a miracle. This implies no criticism of slow-moving government. Stop gap relief aid for food and fuel may be provided before the end of 1947. And Europe doesn’t have to stand still while the American government erects the machinery and starts it rolling. Sixty per cent of the first year requirements, stated in the Par is report of the 16-nation Com mitee on European Economic Co-operation, are already on or der. Supplies ordered after the ERP is in operation will be for 1949 or later. But this job is bigger than any peacetime reconstruction project ever conceived. It is planned economy on a global basis. The ERP blueprint must attempt to predict and write specifications on how the non Communist world is going to look in 1951. Long-range eco nomic predictions of this nature have never before been success- j ful for £ven one country or one industry. To make such predic tions for the whole world may be a noble ambition, but it is next to impossible. Too many variables enter the picture. The Harriman Commit tee of 19 admits them. No one can predict what price levels are going to be four years cr even one year hence. A change, up or down, of a few per cent may alter the total recovery funds needed by a billion or more dollars. No one can pre dict what the weather is going to be. No one can predict how fast Europe is going to recover — how fast coal production can be stepped up, what exports Eu rope can produce and sell, thus reducing the amount of aid needed from American taxpay ers. Add up. these uncertainties both ways and what you fcpve is, half a dozen alternate figures that may make ERP cost as little as $12 billion or as much as $23 billion. Estimates simply can’t be made any closer. Another uncertainty must be built around how much aid the U.'S. gives to Europe through third countries — principally Canada and the Argentine. The Harriman Committee seems to agree with the European experts that it is to the advantage of the U. S. for European countries to buy a maximum proportion of their imports from other coun tries, with the U. S. footing at least a part of the bills. Some of the reasons, given are these: All of Europe’s needs cannot be met in.full from U. S. production. The third countries do not have the resources to advance long-term credit to Eu rope. The third countries buy from the U. S. with the dollars they get from Europe, so, in a way, the financing of European purchases promotes trade in the U. S. Of still more importance, the financing of these European pur chases in third countries will re duce the drain on American sup plies and so ease off the de mand for scarce goods in the U. S. That, in turn, is expected to keep down price levels in he U. S. What this aid to Europe through third countries amounts to, therefore, is said to be a ■ kind of subsidy for the Ameri can consumers. It may be cock eyed reasoning, but that’s the way it’s being presented. On the quesxon of how much aid the U. S. should give these third countries, there is no cer tainty at all. The Harriman committee position is that, to set a top limit allowing the U.S. t o finance up to two thirds or three-fourths of all the aid that Europe might get from Canada or the Argentine, would merely mean that these third countries would insist on getting the full amount whether needed or not. Harriman Committee thinking is that each of these countries should be dealt with separately. By negotiation, the amount of these dollar pur chases should be kept at the lowest possible levels. All these uncertainies merely emphasize the fact that the Eu ropean Recovery Program will have to be revised constantly, year by year or even quar ter by quarter, as it gbes along. Trying to write the ticket for the entire four-year jcy ride, in one pmnibus appropriation bill, is impossible. rope, and if not a political settle ment then at least a modus vi vendi between the east and west. Quite contrary to the Rus sian propaganda and to so much that is being said here at home, the Paris program envisages a restoration of intercourse, not a showndown and a final separa tion. On this crucial point, once it gets down to the hard facts and figures, the Harriman com mittee’s report confirms the findings of the Paris committee. “The final determining factor n the size of a prudent pro gram,” says the Harriman re )ort, “is the availability of com modities in this country. The committee has canvassed such availability in detail. At the Pa ris conference it was concluded that the Western Hemisphere simply did not have the food re sources to supply all of the es timated needs.’’ Where then are western Europe and west ern Germany to obtain the sup plies which cannot be obtained in the Western Hemisphere? The answer, as given in the Paris report, is that they will have to be obtained from east ern Europe: “A substantial and steady resumption of east ern European food, feeding stuffs and timber supplies is as sumed in this report; pre-war flow of cereals from eastern Eu rope is assumed to be restored by 1951, and the supplies of tim ber are assumed to reach 75 per cent of pre-war by 1951.” The estimates in the P&ris re port about coal are no less sig nificant. The European authors of the plan assumed that “the required imports of United States coal will likewise fall fast, as United Kingdom and Ruhr outputs expand, and as increased supplies come for ward from Poland.” By 1951, they say, western European im ports of coal from America will fall 41 million metric tons to 5 million, and during this same period the imports of Polish coal will rise from 17 to 31 million tons. “These figures,” says the Paris report (Vol. II, Chapter IV, Paragraph 106)” are probably on the high side, as they assume Poland’s ability to carry out her present long-range plans for the rehabilitation of her mines, and to procure from abroad (includ ing the United States) a sub stantial volume of mining equipment.” Thus on food and fuel, the wo most urgently needed sup Iodized Salt' Knocks Goiter By william aTobripk .

Unless i 50 thing is done to increase inH^' salt use, a return of goiter ^ children is predicted. ’ m Before modern methods of,, i f merP ?evel°P^ much i the table salt contained iodl! But, in developing a white salt which poured easily, t»e was destroyed by the high w peratures used in the nroc!r and goiter in children develop from its use. Michigan was. one of the fir,t states to promote the ur iver»i use of iodized table salt Lee' lation was enacted which w bade the sale of any other va" riety. Salt companies asreeii ♦ sell the product at ,he sam cost as salt which lacked iodine and Public Health authorities promoted its use. Within a shor, time, common goiter was rar» in Michigan children. At one time, iodized table sait was blamed for causing g0'iter in adults. It is possible to de* velop goiter from taking iodine but only in amounts 50 to 155 times greater than contained in iodized table salt. Occasional persons are sensitive to iodin» in iodized table salt, but their number is small and salt. lack, ing iodine, can be provided for them. Last year in Congress, legi?. lation to outlaw any other types of salt except that containing iodine failed. If this legislation had been successful, it would not be long before common goiter would become an extinct disease. Mothers of young children who have not yet reached ma turity should use iodized table salt for all purposes in the home. Its use by adults will not do any harm, even though thev are past the age at which com mon goiter usually develops. QUESTION: By mistake I put some nose drops in my eye. To counteract the effect, I washed them with an advertised patent eye wash. Do you think this will have a permanent effect on my vision? ANSWER: Your physician can advise you on the condition of your eyes. If your medicine cabinet had been hcusecleaned these patent remedies would have been discarded and this mistake would not have oc curred. plies, the Paris report requires an increase of production in eastern Europe and a rapid re sumption of economic in tercourse “Certainly,” says the report, “the participating coun tries intend to do what they can to encourage its resumption.” A very interesting thing hap pened in Europe this summer which is not perhaps fully ap preciated here. Every one knows, of course, that Mr. Mol otov, accompanied by a large delegation, went "to Paris for the preliminary meeting with Mr. Bevin and M Bidauli. that Poland and Czechoslovakia had accepted the invitation tn participate and had appointed their representatives, that other countries in the Soviet or bit were preparing to follow suit, and that suddenly Mr. Mol otov broke off the negotiation, and that the Soviet allies were forbidden to participate. But what I for one aid not know until I had read the Paris report, particularly the conclu sions cited above, and had made special inquires was this: That though the eastern countries were not present at Paris, they were treated in the essential calculations as if they were presennt. They were not written off. They were counted in. Though they did not for mally offer information on what they needed and what they could supply, this informa tion was obtained—obvious!'' with their knowledge and ap parently with their consent —through other chainels through the economic com mittee for Europe in which they and the Russians are participat ing at Genera.
