HAPPY KNDING 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 "Communist-front" 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! J their Attorney General defending be-| | fore a Federal court the right of al J speaker to attack in public the poli-| cies of the very Administration ofl I which that Attorney General is al I member, and can witness the court! I upholding that right, then democracy! in these United States is still pretty] healthy. Car Manufacturers Planning Changes 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 is rr ^ **** ?truck " wffl be M indicate The new heating deviee, designea to kwp the en*ine *mb even whoa idle, still is reported to be under de velopment for several manufacturers but it may aot be ready for pas senger-car adaptation on the 1948 models. Heavier duty generators to meet increasing demands on the elec trical system and more convenience accessories are indicated. So far as new business is concern ed the car industry docs not need radically different new models to stimulate order accumulation. It hasj been said in some quarters that even if only another "face-lifting" opera tion were performed on the next I models, the manufacturers couldyseUJ all the cars they are likely to make | in IMS. .WM Republicans Finally 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! prices downward. 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 mal conditions. "Now it is up to us," he said, "to NOTIO OF PUBLIC HEARING Pursuant to ths provisions of (Jen em Statutes 180-87, tlie Board of Commssioners of the Tewn/of^rm ville, North Carolina, do herewith no tify ail -interested parties that the assessment roll for the paving im provements made within the City Limits of Farmville, North Carolina, during the years 1948 and 1947, has been completed and has been deposit ed in the office of the Clerk of the Town of Farmville, North Cfcroilna, ajgn sad wltl do to pnoduce lower 17 on the necessities ourl ople now find it so difficult to | Fuel .Shortage Forecast si ifi.
