As much goodness and piety, so much heaven. —Theodore Parker. In Re Legion Stadium Any discussion of paid admissions as against passing the hat at sports contests in Legion Stadium on Sundays is every bit as stirring as a debate on the relative merits of twiddle-dee and twiddle-dum. What is needed at the Stadium is a roof for the grandstand. Audiences that have been drenched during football games this season would confirm this to the last spec tator. Another need is paved approaches from the highway, and the creation of additional entrance roads, via Greenfield park. Still another is adequate supervision of parking. Such improvements would convert Legion Stadium into a major community asset. Some minor improvements — cleaning up the ground within the reservation and re moval of the unsightly wire fence along the front, for example — have been com pleted. The time has come for undertaking some major projects—the few here named and others that are a subject of constant public mention. As long as they are not made Legion Stadium will remain below par, as in the past. The Tax Football It is unfortunate, considering the peo ple s and the nation’s economic situation, that tax reduction should have become a political football to be kicked hither and yon with no chance of a touchdown any time soon. There will be a new tax bill before the house, soon after the regular congressional session opens in January. This reasonably may be depended on. And the House also may be depended upon to pass it; with the Senate following suit. But the republican majority will write the bill in terms that are bound to be ob jectionable to President Truman, with the purpose of having it vetoed. Coming, as this would, on the eve of a national presidential campaign, the republicans would use it as a vote getter for their candidate, whoever he may be. It may be good politics, but offers no re lief for the taxpayers for at least another year. Believes Price Cut Near Most economists declare there is no rea son to expect a general lowering of prices in the foreseeable future. A cut-back wil' •ome eventually, but they are unwilling tc bfj '• ■" en a guess when it Will come. f. ere is one economist who takes issui >ith the majority. Dr. Howard R. Bowen, dean of the collegi >f commerce and business administration at he University of Illinois, recently told the insurance conference of the American Vlanagement Association at Chicago, that he break may come in the next few months. U the same time, he said, there is liable o be a curtailment of business activity. Thus, his prophesy, whatever hope it may lold out, has its gloomy side. “Greatest cuts may be expected in prices which have risen the most,” Dr. Bowen laid. “Today’s price structure is maladjusted n terms of normal peacetime cost relation ships. “Perhaps the most convincing evidence regarding the outlook is the plain fact that we have been in the midst of a first-class boom. Past experience gives us very little reason to expect a period of stable prosperi ty following a boom. Booms have always culminated, sooner or later, in recessions. Past experience should put us on guard.” This leaves one undecided whether to hope his dream is fulfilled or dissolved, wheth er to believe a recession could be more easi ly weathered than inflation. Two Traffic Problems Third street residents are still wondering what the city administration proposes to do to create a truck lane—on some other street. They have been patient, they say, while the City Hall has spent some years trying to make r-j its mind, and now they feel that, notwithstanding what the copy book says about patience being its own re ward, their plight deserves not ony kind ly consideration but definite action by the Council. And there is good reason for them to har bor resentment at the delay. Their plaster is still falling, their windows still cracking, their whole houses trembling at night as heavy trucks thunder past. With the deepest sympathy for their situ ation, and while the Council is meditating (we hope) on where to route the trucks with least damage to property and protest from residents, another traffic problem confronts the Council which needs solution. This is what shall be done to abate the nuisance created by motorcycles and scoot ers here and there about the city well into the wee small hours of night. Can the riders be forced off the streets at a given hour after dark, or are they en titled to ride about at all times with equal rights with motorists, who, themselves, are not always quiet in transit? Can they be made to install mufflers, if it is the lack of these gadgets that makes these machines so noisy? Or can they be required to stop their yelling? These are matters that require legal de cision. But certainly some rules ought to be enforced that would enable stay-at-homes to enjoy a full night’s rest. Contempt For Brass General George S. Patton had his faults but the lack of a sense of humor was not one of them. This attribute is well illustrated in his letters to Mr. Frederick Ayer which the Atlantic magazine started to publish in its November issue. me letters reveal me man .ration—ms deep concern for his wife, his frequent thoughts of death, his relationship with General Montgomery, his personal reaction to promotion, but, because of censorship, little enough of his military prowess. In his closing letter of this first install ment of the series, written on September 26, 1943, in Palermo, he shows humorous con tempt for brass. “Every once in a while,” he writes, “I become completely amused at the amount of formality accorded me, par ticularly when I think that within a reason able time I will be riding a solitary bicycle from Green Meadows to Hamilton. Now when I go abroad, the sirens of motorcycles scream, armored cars pursue me, and to cap the climax, the other day I went on a private train on a private railway with a pilot train ahead of me to see that the rails were not mined, and a second pilot behind me to see that some malign influence did not jam into my sacred rear. When we stopped for lunch, soldiers sprang from the bushes to patrol the sides of the track. “As I say, it was very amusing and I know that it accounts for the stuffiness of many generals.” Could it be that General Patton knew about General J. C. H. Lee’s adoration of his own brass, perhaps? ON OMINIOUS ANNIVERSARY An Ominous Anniversary The atomic age actually came into exis tence five years ago tomorrow. It was on December 2, 1942, that a small group of scientists, in a converted squash court on the University of Chicago campus, were able to split the nuclei of atoms and control the release of the tremendous energy imprison ed in them. But the possibility of controlling atomic energy was advanced by Democratus, a contemporary of Socrates, possibly the great est of Greece’s physical philosophers, who was believed insane and whom Hippocrates was called in to cure. Perhaps it was a few years before or a few after 400 3. C. that Democrates proposed an atomic theory. And in 79 B. C. Lucretius, the Roman philosopher and poet, expounded the same theory in “De Rerum Natura,” It’s a far piece from those days to Decem ber 2, 1942. Since this latter date, which paved the way to Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the future utili zation of atomic energy has bred fear among the peoples of the world, who know that while it could bring about a period of un matched progress still dread the possibility that it will point the way to annihilation. Whatever recognition of this anniversary is accorded tomorrow, and the University of Chicago is planning impressive cere ! monies, we ought not to overlook the curse that lies hidden in atomic energy while ! celebrating its potential blessings* As Pegler Sees It By WESTBROOK PEGLER (Copyright, King Features Syndicate, Inc.) NEW YORK, Nov. 30.—Something tells me that the man who started selling the St. Louis Browns to Richard Muckerman, 10 years ago or so, probably was the same fellow that was spinning around that suite up there in the Chase hotel in St. Louis back in the twenties when the Cardinals had won a pennant and we were very young and so was the hotch inside us. I was just reading that Mr. Muckerman is a horny-handed millionaire who bought a little bit of stock in the Browns and never thought it might be habit-forming until he was horribly addicted and finally sold off all his players to cure himself. I was reading that he was- baying at the moon at a party in a hotel in Jefferson City that night a few years back when sud denly a stranger broke into his iddle-bum-bo to ask “why don’t you buy my $3,500 worth of stock in the Browns?” And he kept pestering Mr. Muckerman, and pulling and picking at him, until Mr. M. said: “All right, give me a blank check and I will buy your rancid violets but then leave me alone so I can sing.” What for kind of looking type of party was he, Mr. Muckerman? Was he kind of tall and dangerous-looking with kind of sunk-in eyes and a Texas hat and a watch chain with an Odd Fellows’ fob? Talked a sort of whiney drawl, did he, Mr. Mucker man, and playing caroms off the bath room door and the sofa where that lady was a’setting? Sounds to me mignty use tne same man, Mr. Muckerman. A few years older than the time he sold men Lil Stoner, the old Detroit pitcher, in that suite at the Chase hotel for $1,500, and $500 for a catcher, because a pitcher is no good without you got a boy to ketch him. It couldn’t be anyone else. And, tell me, Mr. Muckerman, now, was they a right pretty sort of lady, a red-head, setting there on the sofa all night long while the gallant stags were harmonizing and arch ing their necks and fetching her drams and ev’body thought she was somebody else’s true loving spouse? And she set there, loading and loading and smiling sweet at this and that one, and nobody even made a pass to offer to see her home and along about 2 a. m. she just sifted away, alone, like a phantom in a Viennese play? Mr. Muckerman, you and me, we have had the same dream. Same cast. Same plot, shook up a little. I bought a battery, Stoner and one. You bought into the Browns. I didn’t have no more idea to buy me no ball players that night than gossakes, that’s all I hope. And neither did you. Well, with me it was like, you know, a lot of people in a World Series suite and the bathtub full of beer, like always in those days. And a legger named Sam the gas-man, he comes busting in and sheds pint slabs of chicken-cock and golden wedding and, it makes a man shiver to think of it now, how we used to use giner ale to neutralize the worm-oil from the still. In a hundred rooms, at the Copley in Bos ton for the Harvards and the Yales, at the Ritz in Philadelphia, the Commodore, the Drake and those old pigeon-lofts in Wash ington, the scene was always the same, give or take a few characters. And always there was a nice-acting, pretty-looking, red-head ed, sir-I’m-a-lady kind of lady on the couch. Edna! That was her name! Her name was Edna, because I remember one night we all put our little touseled heads together and sang “The Is Always a Girl Named Edna.” Well, this whiney voiced party somehow picked on me to buy Lil Stoner who had been a real good pitcher for the Tigers and had gone down to Dallas when his term was up. I said, “No, I don’t want to buy him.” “Why not?” this fellow said with a glarey look. “Because,” I said, “I am not baseball; I am newspaper. You know, words and phrases, strui_g together with inimitable facility.” ouie, a xviiuw, lie hcuu, nasuuaicu a iwo. . Nothing but bigotry!” “Who?” I said. j “Associated Press,” he said. He seemed ig- i norant to me. Then this lady, Edna, began to say, “why don’t you buy Lil Stoner, Red?” and she started to cry and yell. I was a red-head too, then. I never could stand a lady yelling and carrying on, so the upshot was that some body pulled out a check on a little old bust ed bank down around Popular Bluff and I filled it in for $2,000 and he wrote out a bill of sale for Lil Stoner and one. The next morning when I met Grantland Rice he said, “I suppose you know what you did last night, don’t you?” and Harry Sal singer, from Detroit, said, “and in Missiouri at that! He had to pick Missouri to do it! Boy, that certainly is bad. Well, whenever they have a World Series out this way, we will run up to Jefferson City and call on you on visitors’ day and bring you cigarettes and candy bars.” “Me?” I yelled. “I didn’t do no such of a thing. She went out with her husband. That skinny guy in the Texas hat.” “Oh, her,” Rice and Salsinger said. “No body ain’t fretting about her. She is the house-mother. But you wrote a bum check for $2,000 and furthermore, come Jan. 1, you are responsible for the board and keep of Lil Stoner and one and they are terrible eaters. You are doomed to poverty, all for a smile from a pretty red-head.” When Christmas came I wrote Lil Stoner a nice note. I said I didn’t want to stand in the way of his advancement so, inasmuch as I didn’t have any ball club, I was giving him his unconditional release. Then I wrote an article for the great American free press giving the same notice to one, my catcher. In Florida, I asked Judge Landis and he said all right but the next time he would fine me $26,240,000, the same that he fined John D. Rockefeller. So, now, Mr. Muckerman, you tell me. Was that how it was you bought into the Browns that night at the party in Jefferson City? An tell me, for my purely historical in terest, how was Edna and have the years been kind to her? Quotations I believe that the economic future of Ja pan will be at stake during the next six months.

Headaches And Hurly-Burly By STEWART ALSOP WASHINGTON—The non Com munist provision of the Taft Hartley Law has already caused an immense hurly-burly throughout the labor movement and migraine headaches for the members of the National Labor Relations Board. The board leaped one hurdle when it ruled that the officers of the national labor organizations need not sign the law’s non-Communist affida vits. But it is now evident that despite this ruling, more hurly burly in the labor movement and more headaches for the la bor board are in prospect. The strange legal maze, which the legislators unwitting ly created in their attempt to ■cut the communists in the labor movement down to size, is typi fied by the pending case be tween the Remington Rand Corporation and the United Electrical Workers. This case may have an important impact on the whole pattern of labor management relations. The Remington Rand com pany has asked the N.L.R.B. to hold an election in its plants to determine what union repre sents the majority of its 10,000 workers. These workers are now organized in the electrical work ers’ union. But the United Elec trical Workers is not only the third biggest union in the C.I.O. It is also the largest communist dominated union in the country. Largely because if they did so most of them would be clapped into jail on perjury charges, the officers of the U.E.W. have re fused to sign the Taft-Hartley Law’s non-communist affidavits. There seems little doubt that the Congress intended that any union whose officers refused to What The Rails Want By PETER EDSON WASHINGTON — The Associa tion of American Railroads has come forward with a bold, bad plan to give the Interstate Com merce Commission veto power over Congress and the U. S. Public Roads Administration. The latter has over-all planning re sponsibility and the handling of federal aid funds given to the states for construction of Am erica’s highway system. The AAR plan would work like this: Whenever Congress had before it a federal highway construction appropriation bill, the Public Roads Administration would be required to certify “to what ex tent, if any, the amount under consideration exceeds the sum which would be adequate but for the commercial use of the high way.” What this seems to mean in simple language is that the Pub lic Roads Administration would have to estimate how much the proposed highways would be used for pleasrue driving, how much for motor buses and trucks. But now get the next step in the railroads’ proposal If the certification of the Pub lic Roads Administration indica ted that part of the appropriation would go for building a commer cial highway, the Interstate Com merce Commission would be re quired to investigate and report whether this “excess appropr’a tion” was justified in the public interest. If the ICC found that a part of the appropriation was “unjusti fied” as a commercial use, that part of the money would be dis allowed. In effect, this would give the ICC the power to tell Congress how much it could ap propriate for public roads con struction. This unprecedented proposal is contained in a 22-chapter final re port from a committee of 60 top U. S. railroad executives, set up in 1942 to study postwar trans portation nroblems. Chairman of the committee was R. V. Fletcher, former AAR president, now a vice president and special counsel. His principal consultant was Dr. H. B. Mever, formerly a member of the ICC. Besides putting a stranglehold on the railroads’ motor bus and truck competition, by limiting hiphwav construction through THC the THetrher committee disc nronoses to reneel the long-stand ing government transportation policy which prohibits one form of transportation from controlling another. Rail, water, motor and air transport companies are now required to be fully independent of each other, so as to be com petitive. What the railroads propose, to get around this, is the power to form “transportation companies, authorized and able to furnish to any shipper that particular class or type of services which the exi gencies of his business demand.” The Fletcher committee report admits that this would tend “to re strict each form (of transporta tion) to the field in which ex perience has shown that it really belongs.” In short, one form of transportation would be able to throttle another if it offered com petition, and, since -he railroads are by far the strongest, financi ally, the assumption is that the railroads would soon control all transportation. Another recommendation in the report is that a law be passed prohibiting the appropriation by Congress of any sums for “im proving” waterways and for “con struction of artificial waterways,” unless the ICC has certified that such expenditure is justified in the public interest. Th;s Would' apparently give the ICC veto power over flood control, irriga tion and water-power expendi tures by the federal government. The AAR committee report al so recommends that, before any government money is spent on airfields or aids to air navigation, the authorizations should be re viewed “by some expert adminis trative tribunal concerned chifly with the public interest.” This “tribunal” is not mentioned by name, but it can be assumed that ICC is again meant. Another AAR proposal calls for new “legislation which will sub ject all forms of commercial transportation to the authority of the Interstate Commerce Com mission.” This idea is not new. Even the ICC wants this extra power, the honorable commis sioners having made many speeches to that effect. But it’s an open question whether that would be in the public interest. A cardinal point of the rail roads’ legislative program is en actment of the Reed-Bulwinkle bill, which would exempt the rail roads from prosecution under the Sherman anti-trust laws in cases where thev joined to make rate agreement- conforming to ICC rogidqtion. This b'll is still before Congress, having passed the Se nate. It hasn’t been pushed in the House, for fear President Truman will veto H. sign the affidavits could have no place on the ballot in an N.L.R.B. election. Thus if the N.L.R.B. orders an election in the Remington Rand plants, and if the U.E.W. is denied a place on the ballot, the resulting elec tion will obviously be strictly on the Balkan pattern. The thou sands of workers who belong to the United Electrical Workers could not vote for the union of which they are members. In this curious Balkan-type election, two things could happen. A rival union could lake advantage of the situation by successfully horning in. This is possible in the Remington Rand case. The Independent Interna tional Association of Machinists has long been hungrily eyeing the electrical workers’ bailiwick. Since the electrical workers would not be on the ballot, the machinists would have an enor mous tactical advantage. The machinists might be the legal viators, even with a minority of the workers actually supporting them. On the other hand, the mem bers of the U.E.W., denied the opportunity of voting for their own union, might adopt the ex pedient of marking their ballots for “no union.” Obviously neither course would make for industrial peace. If the machinists won with what might actually be no more than a small minority of the workers backing them, very bad trouble between the two fac tions of workers could certainly be expected. But if the majority of the workers voted for “no un ion” with the real purpose of protecting the U.E.W. from its rival organization, labor-mana gement relations would automa tically revert to the law of the jungle. Both sides could depend on their economic strength alone to protect their interests. That might lead to the worst kind of trouble. The Remington Rand company, which created the hated “Mohawk Valley formu la” to fight the C.I.O. in the early days, is not known for its tender regard for labor unions. On the other hand, the commu nists who run the U.E.W. are as ruthless as communists general ly are. Thus the end result might well be a fierce and bloody trial of strength outside the law. Certainly this is not what the framers of the Taft-Hartle^ Law intended. That is why there is considerable sentiment on the labor board that the law should be so interpreted as to allow a union a place on the ballot even if its officers fail to sign the Violet Radiation Less In Winter BY WILLIAM A.

They Burned Books In its issue of May 8, 1943, Tht Saturday Review of Literature printed a classic radio play by Stephen Vincent Benet, “They Burned the Books.” It was upon the occasion of the ninth anni versary of the burning of the books that condemned the totali tarian lapse into barbraism in Germany. He truly called them “the iron years of terror and evil.” Those vandals who lighted a fire in a public square in Ber lin were made to say: A book’s a book. It's paper, mil and print, If you stab it, it won’t bleed. If you beat it, it won’t briuse. If you burn it, it won’t scream. Mr. Benet confounded that Hit lerism by summoning the great writers of a Germany Hitlei wai disgracing — Schiller, Heinrich, Heine, Sigmund Freud, and Thomas Mann and 40 other dis tinguished scholars. Hitler not only cast into the flames the im mortal works of Germans, but he also included the masterpiecei of liberal writers of every nation until the blaze extended almost to the clouds, emitting such smoke as obscured the heavens. He did this in the vain attempt to destroy the great tomes that condemned Nazism. non-communist affidavits. In certain cases such a ruling would actually protect the in terests of employers. It would prevent jurisdictional strikes be tween rival unions, one of which had not signed the affidavits and thus, for the labor board's purposes, did not legally exist But this interpretation of the law would require much finagling with the clear congressional in tent, and N.L.R.B. counsel, Robert Denham, is known to op pose it. The basic issue — whether tr» non-communist clause of hie new labor act is constitutional will eventually be decided bv tne Supreme Court. No one knows, of course, how that bod decide. But it can certainly be argued that the wording _of tne law, which requires a union "t ficer to swear that he “does not believe in” communist doctrine* skirts perilously close to thougn control, and thus threaten: t* Bill of Rights.
