There was not peace, but once
more a sword in Palestine. The
United Nations truce had failed.
As the four-week interruption of
hostilities between Arabs and Jews
dragged somberly through its final
hours, combatants on both sides
I were making preparations to re-
They had failed to come to terms,
and that failure arose out of the
I fact that there had existed no po-
] litical or social basis upon which
a peace agreement could be rested,
nor were either the Jews or Arabs
particularly eager to create one.
Their attitude throughout the
: truce negotiations had been that
the contest over whether the state
i of Israel should be allowed to exist
must necessarily be a flat, win-or-
lose battle with no middle ground
f solution possible.
Count Folke Bernadotte, U.N.
| mediator In Palestine, had tried
' hard, but he had had to carry out
| his negotiations in what might be
termed a spiritual vacuum between
the Jews and Arabs. There simply
was no meeting of minds upon
which he might have capitalized.
Before the truce expired Ber-
nadotte had endeavored to get it
extended and continue the negotia-
tions. Israel had agreed to such
an extension but the Arab league
Previously, during the last days
of the truce, the Arabs had re-
jected a plan submitted by Berna-
dotte which included an extensive
revision of the now defunct U.N.
Bernadotte’s proposal would have
restored the area of Palestine to
what it was before Trans-Jordan
was separated from it, and that
total area then would have been
partitioned into independent Arab
and Jewish states.
The plan, as presented, had a
ring of desperation in it. It must
have been obvious, even to Ber-
nadotte, that the Arabs would not
accept such a scheme, particularly
since they had violently opposed
the original U.N. partition idea.
Trans-Jordan was especially an-
tagonistic to the plan, insisting that
it would put the nation under at
least partial jurisdiction of the
United Nations, thus making it no
better than a dependent state.
As Bernadotte and his staff left
Palestine guns already were firing
and the Holy Land had relapsed
into a condition of war.
BOYS' TOWN LEADER . .The
Rev. Edmond C. Walsh has been
named acting director of Boys’
Town, succeeding the late Msgr.
Edward J. Flanagan, foundrr of
the world famous school in Ne-
braska for underprivileged boys.
THE OLD AND THE YOUNG STAND GUARD . . . Virtually every
■Mn—and many women, too—is of "draft age” in Israel. They are neith-
er too young nor too old to bear arms in the Jewish light to keep the
young state of Israel alive. Here, two guards, one old and bearded
aad wearing a prayer cap, the other younger and equipped with a
steel helmet, are shown on duty in the war-shattered Holy Land.
DONE WITH MIRRORS .. . This

To the accompaniment of his now
customary blast at the 80th con-
gress President Truman signed in-
to law a farm bill that extends pres-
ent price support policies for 15
| months and establishes a long-range,
flexible support program to begin
January 1, 1950.
Signing the bill, the President
said: "I wish to make it plain once
again that legislation for price sup-
ports is only part of the action this
congress should have taken to meet
the problems of American agricul-
Thus, he was not criticizing the
farm price support bill in itself but
rather giving another re-run to the
familiar theme whereby he has
been castigating congress for do-
ing a little when a lot more was
Congress, he said, failed to en-
act legislation to strengthen the
soil conservation program; it did
not provide the necessary funds for
marketing research; it did not act
on the international wheat agree-
ment It failed, he specified, to
meet “the serious problems of
rural housing, health and educa-
“In the field of agriculture, as in
so many others, most of the busi-
ness of the 80th congress was left
unfinished," Mr. Truman observed.
Under the extension bill farm
prices generally will be supported
at their present levels. However,
the support price for cotton will
drop from 92V4 to 90 per cent of
The idea behind parity farm
prices is to insure the farmer the
same buying power, compared with
the rest of the community, that he
had during a favorable crop period.
Usually the standard interval upon
which parity prices are based are
the five years from 1909 to 1914.
Five other basic crops will con-
tinue to be supported at 90 per cent
of parity. They are wheat, corn,
rice, peanuts and tobacco.
As U. S. planes continued to fly
tons of food into beleaguered Ber-
lin the East-West stalemate over
Germany was solidifying in a stub-
The Russian blockade of Berlin
had brought the painful German is-
sue to a head, and both the Soviets
and the western powers were an-
ticipating that events might begin
to move very rapidly soon.
There were these developments:
The Communists announced that
they were drawing up a constitution
for a German republic and also a
two-year plan to link Berlin eco-
nomically with the Soviet zone.
At the same time, on the free
side of the iron curtain, German
political leaders were expressing
their opposition to the western
powers’ plans for a West German
In Berlin, power cuts were or-
dered in the three western sectors
of the city to save the dwindling
coal stocks. The action was taken
despite the fact that coal shipments
had begun to arrive by air.
Key to the situation, perhaps,
was the Communist proposal for a
new constitution. The Soviet-spon-
sored German People’s Congress
of eastern Germany announced
that the document would be official.
In a statement the group said that
"Germany is an indivisible repub-
lic made up of states and that execu-
tive power stems from the people.”
That appeared to bring Soviet in-
tentions more or less out in the
open. It means that Russia appar-
ently is determined either to force
the western democracies out of Ber-
lin or bludgeon them into an agree-
ment whereby the Soviets would be
in virtual control of the city.
Although the presidency of the
United States still is far from a
reality for Gov. Thomas E. Dewey
of New York, the Republican nom-
inee nevertheless is giving consid-
erable thought to some of the prob-
lems that will face him if he does
get elected to the office.
If. for instance, he is to make
good his promise to sweep out "16
years of Democratic cobwebs"
from the federal government, these
are some of the tasks he will be
expected to perform:
Replace hundreds of officials in
Washington and all over the nation
with men of his choice who will
put his policies into effect.
Establish with congress a coordi-
nated program of policies for all
federal departments, both foreign
Streamline government functions
and eliminate duplications in the
present structure of alphabetical
agencies and bureaus.
It will be a gigantic task. Pol-
icies that a Republican president
would have to establish would range
through the current conduct of for-
eign affairs; domestic spending of
taxpayers' money; federal relations
with private business, labor and
industry; housing, veteran^, agri-
culture and social improvements.
Then there will be the matter of
choosing a cabinet that will be
geographically representative of
the entire nation.
HEAT WAVE? NOT HERE . . . From a dingy old dock at 65th street
and East river In New York, small fry Manhattanites were able to
thumb their noses at the heat wave engulfing the metropolis. They
simply jumped gaily into the water It waa as simple as that, and
there were a lot of adults who envied them. On the\particular day
all this happened the thermometer showed 92.1 degrees in New
City, and In New York City, brother, that’s hot.
As the economic cooperation ad-
ministration closed its Marshall plan
books on the first three months of
its operation it reported that re-
covery shipments worth $762,747,140
were approved for Europe and China
during that period.
That total is about 58 per cent
of the goal originally set for the
quarter, but ECA Administrator
Paul Hoffman said the unspent bal-
ance would be used eventually.
Consumer's price index, formerly
called the cost of living index, for
mid-May this year rose .6 per cent
above that for mid-April to reach
a new all-time high, according to
figures released by National Indus-
trial Conference board.
Expressed in 1923 dollars, the pur-
chasing power of the dollar stood
at 61.3 cents in May. That repre-
sents a drop of .6 per cent from April
and 7.4 per cent from June. 1947.
Federal Judge T. Alan Goldsbor-
ough was not a man to stand idly
by and watch society disintegrate,
ns he termed it, so he issued an in-
junction forbidding a national rail
The Injunction was a permanent
one replacing the temporary ‘‘no
strike” order he issued last May
after the government had seized the
railroads in the face of an impend-
ing strike by the three operating
Justifying his action, Goldsborough
said that if he had not issued the
order "the whole economic and po-
litical system of the nation would
Although rail unions had protested
that a permanent injunction was un-
necessary, Goldsborough said they
could not be permitted "to adopt
a process which will disintegrate so-
ciety itself.” That held true, he
pointed out, regardless of whatever
merits the union's case might hold.
"Our political influence through-
out the world would be done away
with, we’d become a laughing stock.
To permit a strike of this kind is
something society should not be
forced to tolerate.”
But ns the stalemate dragged on
the disputants apparently lost some
of their zest for the contest.
Finally a series of conferences, ar-
ranged by John R. Steelman, pres-
idential assistant, resulted in a more
or less amicable settlement: The
unions agreed to accept a wage in-
crease of 15$i> cents an hour, plus
some changes in operating rules.
Chortled President Truman as he
called the labor and management
representatives into his office: “You
did this on your own hook and I feel
very good about it. I congratulate all
of you on it."
People who are addicted to the
theory that human existence is de-
fined by cycles have made a hor-
rendous prediction: This will be a
world of dictators for the next 250
That prognostication was made in
a "law of growth of nations,” pub-
lished by the Foundation for the
Study of Cycles. This law indicates
further that after the period of dic-
tators will come a static or “frozen”
This "frozen” civilization prob-
ably will be a happy one, but it is,
nevertheless, doomed to deteri-
orate. The end is foreseen when
younger peoples, eager for the loot
of the world, rise to give the coup
de grace to the emasculated west-
Who these younger peoples are
is not revealed. They may be a
fresh group of barbarians or near-
barbarians who will come sweep-

In addition to giving Russia
a false incentive toward becom-
ing particularly nasty in Berlin,
the recent currency revaluation
in Germany’s western zones
caused a certain amount of per-
sonal financial confusion also.
This German hausfrau turned in
