Second CUaa Mall Matter at the
Poet Office at FbrmrilK N. C..
trader Act of March 3rd, 1378.
Washington has witnessed, during
the last few days, a little drama
I which epitomized some of the wont
and some of the best of the America!
| of 1947.
The worst showed up in the Ameri
can Anti-Communist Association's,
effort to deny Henry A. Wallace, byl
court injunction, the right to voice I
his views on public questions in si
public park. The best appeared in|
the Justice Department's champion
ing that right. I
This newspaper has differed with!
Mr. Wallace!* current views on!
I foreign policy, and has questioned!
the wisdom of a former Vice-Presi-I
I dent debating the issue beyond the!
I water's edge. But the Association's!
claim that Mr. Wallace has attempt-!
I ^ to "incite human emotion toward!
riot and insurrection" is ridiculous onl
| the face of it
Nor have we seen convincing proof]
I that the Southern Conference for!
I Human Welfare which sponsored Mr.l
Wallace's speech at the Water Gate!
(theater is either "Communist" orl
What of it? Weeding out Com-I
onanists and fellow travelers from!
I Government positions of trust is one!
I thing. Denying even the real radi-l
| cals?let alone Henry Wallace?the!
I right of peaceabla free sppech is a|
| very dangerous somebiing else.
But, we rejoice to say, the best in!
I this drama outweighs the worst As!
long as American citizens can behold!

For 1948 Model
Most 1948 model automobiles still I
are six months away, but specula-1
tion regarding their features already!
is well under Way.
The projected new Ford has!
aroused more interest than other!
makes, chiefly because Henry Ford!
II recently declared it will be "<hf-|
ferent from any Ford ever made."
I Moat frequently heard forecai.
about the Ford is that it will' be I
completely different in "styling,"!
with roomier interior, coil springs!
in front and left springs in the rear.!
It also has been predicted is some!
sources that, in pressing the battle |
with Chevrolet for top place in out-l
put and sales, Ford will put greater!
emphasis on the six cylinder engine,!
although retaining the eight. I
This speculation has brought no!
confirmation or denial from the Ford|
offices, which insist details will not

accessories are indicated.
So far as new business is concern

radically different new models to

Delving Into Causes
Of Current Prices
The Republican leadership in Con
, gross is conducting hearings on an
I issue lsden with political dynamite?
[that of high prices.
I ]t is an issue which- already has j
|t< iched off sparks in an exchange
I between Senator Robert A. Taft and
[President Truman. ,
It is one with which Republican
leaders have been chided as slow in
I coming to grips.
Some hint of the political issues
involved in any discussion of prices
came with the taunt of Senator]
Francis J. Myers (D) of Pennsyl
vania that Congress has done noth
ing about prices while "endeavoring
I to lower taxes for the rich and raise
rents for the poor."
Earlier in the month, Senator Taft
had charged the Administration with
abandoning efforts to keep prices
down in favor of "heavy spending I
abroad that will keep them up."
The President retorted in an offi
cial statement labeling Taft's "boom
and bust" price doctrine as "falla
cious and dangerous." He charged I
that the Republican leader, in effect, I
I was arguing that "the only way to I
bring prices down is to reduce the
j demand for goods." I
Any investigation into the question
of high prices opens the way for loud I
I-told-you-so's from Administration I
leaders who warned that premature
lending of price controls would bring
high prices. - j
Prices have risen sharply since the
ending of controls and the over-all I
[ cost of living has climbed from a
level of 133.3 in June, 1930, to 156.3
in March, 1947.
Prices have remained high, al-1
though supplies <? in nearly all lines I
today are plentiful. This is parti-1
cularly true in food.
The wholesale food index moved up
for the fourth consecutive week, ac
cording to Dun and Brudstreet re
cords. * ,
Meat, which is exceptionally high
in price, is reported in plentiful sup-1
ply today, with 153 pounds per per-j
son aval lab e this year.
Doubtless those who wish to em
barrass the Republican leadership
will miss no opportunity to recall the
assurances of a year ago from Re
publican congressmen and industry
that once meat and other products
were in normal sufficiency, supply I
and demand quickly would adjust!
Republican Senator Raymond A.
Pa?dmln of Connecticut chided his
party for not taking more vigorous
action to dig into the causes of the
continued high cost of living, said
there was "little point in political
recriminations at this time," and re
minded Congress .that Republicans
after witnessing the failure- of pries
control and the necessity for a free
eonomy had asured the people that
decontrol would bring relief and nor
