Cohipetition Tremendous
Increased production costs, current and po
tential, most certainly art giving the auto in
dustry plenty of pauses for thought these
day in advance of. tha forthcoming an
nouncement of schedules for the 1957 mod-
els. '
Tha Associated Press automotive editor,
David I Wilkie. opinea that "the scorching
competitive battle , . . may prevent a whop
ping Increase." But the law of economics is
with us, too.,-When it is considered what a
mere $10 increase per car means to the in-,
d istry In income, it can be, well imagined
that every care in determining price ached-
'es is being taken and in full consideration

car dealers.
Here's a sample: Chevrolet (804,100 new
cars sold the first six months), Ford (665.733)
and Plymouth (257.318) account for about
53 per cent of all cars sold. On the basis of
what might be termed an average year, just
a 110 increase (only a fraction of what can
be expected) would mean a difference of $15
million annually to Chevrolet, $13 million to
Ford and $5 million to Plymouth. And if one '
or the other hikes prices too high, tha loss
competitively could be tremendous.
It caii be well understood that right now
as the new models approach, all manufactur
ers are paring production costs as much as .
possible, so that they don't Jiave to hike pricer
more) than their competitors.-1; This -year- V
-eady has seen competition in tha Industry
reach new heights and there seems no reason
to suppose it will not continue. War-caused
shortages of motor vehicles have long disap
peared and tha competition now la based on
quality and price. .. - j
Ford is in the rather unenviable position
of having to makt the first announcement,
since Ford will be first to show new models.
An increase would seem to be Inescapable.
But, we're getting some mighty fine cars
these days and competition can be expected.,
to hold prices well in line. - . .
In an attempt to keep the highways neatly
dressed, tha state highway department went
to considerable expense to locate cans for de
posit of motorists' litter. The purpose is frus- .
trated when people make garbage dumps out
of these cans, aa they appear to be doing. The .
McMinnvtlle News-Register ran a picture
showing the litter can filled and cartons of
garbage and waste alongside. Instead of Im
proving the looks of our roadsides, such dis. .
play Is nauseatingly offensive. Use, but do
not abuse, lhe litterbag cans. - f

The Right Direction
It has seemed almost too much to hope
for but both the Army and Navy says it's
here a preventative vaccine for grippe-type
illnesses affecting millions each year.
The Army goes even furtheX than the
Navy and aays its experiments have proven
vaccine effective against t'eatarrh fever, virus
pneumonia, sore throat and severe colds."
Even if neither of the services claim effec
tiveness against the so-called "common cold,"
the results seem to encourage some hope
toward that end. And nothing probably would
suit the medical profession better the old
quip about a cold wearing off in seven days
but a doctor being able to cure it in a week
must wear pretty thin at times.
The Navy says that among 4,000 recruit
"guinea pigs" at its Great Lakes Training
Center, the incidence of grippe-type ailments
was cut 50 to 70 per cent. The Army, using
350 recruits at Tort Dig, NJ., reduced the
number of hospitalized cases of acute respir
atory diseases 80 per cent.
The Navy used vaccine developed by the
federal publie health service; the Army used
its own. They differ in attacking various of
the IS known types of "denovirus." The
Navy's Is aimed at virus types 3, 4 and 7
"which are the most important as a cause of
respiratory virus disease in military popula
tions." The army's challenges types 3 and 4.
We don't know anything about virus and
their types but all of us know that the com

Lraa Red Tape ,
The post office department Isn't about to
make It legal to enclose letters in parcel post
packages a direct violation of tha law but
it's considering making life easier by letting
us seal such packages without having to in
scribe that they "may be opened for inspec
tion." The department apparently is going to as
sume that all packages may be opened for
inspection, except those specially marked
"first class." without the sender having to
give permission.-It seems to be a good move?
The sealing of packages heretofore pre
cluded their being sent parcel post unless the
"may be opened" permission was plainly
marked. Purpose, of course, was to discour
age the illegal enclosures of letters without
extra postage having been declared and paid.
But apparently the post office department has
decided it can just as well open sealed pack
ages as unseajed, anytime it wants, to ascer
tain whether the law is being violated.
Packages often-times look nicer and hold
together better If sealed. But if stickers for
the specific purpose weren't at hand, we eith
er had to write the "may be opened" inscrip
tion or faced the probability that the pack
age would demand first-class postage if we
sealed it. ... .

others like him tried very hard
for a civil rights plank sufficient
ly extreme to make the Demo
crats look cheap and timid in
Negro eyes.
Dirksen and company might
well have won, too. Any Repub
lican can see that the electoral
votes of New York and Illinois,
Pennsylvania and Michigan and
California are worth immeasur
ably more than the slim chance
of Republican gains in the South.
Even from the South, from Ken
tucky Senate aspirant John Sher
man Cooper, came a demand for
a really strong plank. But once
again, Dwight D. Eisenhower put
' his foot down. The word came
from the White House that the
President would not ' stand for
anything too extreme. And so the
"strongly moderate" plank was
adopted.

Rights Not Granted
To the Editor:
"Safety Valve" is right! I would
like to blow off a little steam.
In reply' to 'Mrs. Anne Cham
bers regarding "Right to Work
Laws." in The Statesman issue
of Aug. 1 I will say that I find
little fault with the statements
she has made. I will say. how
ever, that the labor unions as I
have contacted them do not grant
the rights so stated in above
mentioned "Right to Work
Laws."
- I should know: especially from
my experience with the Culinary
Union (which is not culinary only,
but is tied with the bartenders as
well, and which fact is.not dis-
IS. 19M.
I. will say that 'l hsve many
valued friends which belong to
, the "culinary and bartenders
union" (please note that I have
included the bartenders as' they
are reportedly "too weak to
stand alone, so must be induc
ed in the Culinary Alliance Local
No. 4S2. The above words: "Too
weak to stand alone," are the
exact words said to me by Mrs.
Chambers not many weeks ago.
I will say flatly, that what the
Local Culinary Alliance claims
through their secretary, Mrs. An
ne Chambers, is not the practice!
For further details of which I
have plenty, anyone is freely wel
come to consult me at any time
that can be arranged.

Sen. Knowland
Has Praise for
Certain Demos
By WILLARD H. MOBLEY
SAN FRANCISCO I Sen
William P. Knowland set up the
location stakes Monday around a
Republican claim to credit for
peace based on "principle" and
for prosperity and even-handed
dealing at home.
The Californian, GOP leader in
the Senate, gave "responsible
Democrats" a measure of praise
for cooperation "in developing a
foreign policy that must have a
continuity if our nation is to play
its role in preserving a free world
of free men."
But in an address at the Repub
lican National Convention he hit
at the opposition party on a whole
catalogue of counts ranging from
war in the !ast three Democratic
administrations to what Knowland
called "usurpation" of state terri
tory. Peace Theme Stresaed
Knowland's stress throughout
was on the peace theme but he
set up a 17-item list of areas,
mostly in home affairs," where he
claimed advances since the Re
publicans have had the White
House, . -
He also praised Vice President
Nixon, with whom he haa only
recently begun smoking the polit
ical peace pipe, for having "ably
assisted" in building up "the rec
ord of a great American presi
dent Dwight D. Eisenhower."
Knowland put in a solid plug
for Nixon's bid for a second nomi
nationwhich is under attack
from Harold E. Stassen by re
calling that Eisenhower "has fa
vorably commented on the serv
ice and the acceptability of Rich
ard Nixon as a teammate."
Dulles Wini Praise
Knowland took-occasion, too, to
speak highly of Secretary of State
Dulles, with whose specific inter
national moves the senator has
often been in sharp disagreement.
In that connection Knowland hit
hard at what he called "carping
criticism and bitter ward parti-
nsBijv at . tha -Pendergast-la a d.
Tammany type" at the Democrat
ic convention in Chicago last
week.
Knowland said he deeply regrets
that at Chicato "there were those
who, for partisan advantage and
the momentry manifestations of
aroused convention hall, sought to
belittle the person and the action
of a great secretary of state on
the very eve of his depsrture for
an international conference that
could determine the issue of peace
or war."
Sues Caaal ' Crisis
The senator's reference was to
the conference aimed at settling
the crisis over Egyptian seiture of
th Suez Canal.
With a side comment that the
Communists are "the only party
of treason," Knowland said both
parties must stand together
"against Communist subversion
from within or Soviet' aggression
from without." -
