ADVOCATE ..... : " ardly C orth Of ention " ,, By W. Morrow Should {he Governmen lnlerfere? In his syndicated column of July 21, Mr. Walter Lippmann, vchase powers of discernment are, perhaps, unsurpassed by any Other political writer, has some ob servations to make on the steel ~trike that the government would do well to meditate upon. The gist of what Mr. Lippman,n says is that the great majority of the Ameri- can people, for want o{ informat- ran, cannot intelligently appraise t~he issue.s involved in She strike; that newspaper editors are not in )ossession of sufficient informat- !on wit'h which to lead i,ntelligen, t public opinion; that we cannot md should nc,t allow the gian,ts of indu.ntry and labor to slug it out n a propaganda battle; and that the government Should intervene, wen if to do ,no more than to con- duct an impartial semi-j,3dicial in -~iry to ascertain the true facts md issues as distinguished from ~he admfttedly biased reports being issued by the antagonists. In the strike that began last ~eek there can be no question bu, t at this stage in the proceeding labor is under a decided disadvan ~age. Anticipa,ting the strike, most .'teel consumers took the precau- tion of stocking up before the walkout began; add to this the op !nion forces t~ha are heavily align ?d against further inflation which ':he granting of the strikers' re- quest is most apt to produce. And ';hen season Vhese ingredients with ';he fact that the w,hole labor move' men,t is in public disfavor at t~he oresent time as a resul:t of the dis :losures made and being made of ';he an,tics of the Teamsters and Iimmy Hoffa. When all o{ these ingredients are mixed the dis,h t'hat emerges is definitely pro- managemer~t and defimtely anti- labor. But, as ~Mr. Lip~mann points out, time a:~d a lengthy ~teel strike could change a lot of t~his. As stockpiles and fnven,tories diminish opinion may and prob- ~,bly will change. What I gather from all of Vhis is that Mr. Lipp- mann is trying to say ~chat timely xnd proper intervenltion by the ~,overnme,nt could neutralize ex- treme partisans~hip on ei,ther side of the Great Issue and thus pre- ven,t l~bor and managemen~t and, not to be overlooked, the public m general from the ~nevi,table damage t:ha, t must in the very n~at are of things ensue if a long strike becomes a reality. There is ,always ,a danger of BY JOHN A. FIELD JR. State Tax Commissioner Store Licenses for the 1959-60 year are being renewed at a re- cord clip. They were due and pay able July 1. As of July 23 a total of approx im~tety 27,000 businesses had made application. That fig~are in- cludes both new and renewal re- quests. At the same da~e of 1958 only 20,000 bus!;]esses had filed. The accelerated rate of applic- ~Vion is probably due to strict en- orcement of a ,penalty provision inserted in,to the store license' statu.te by the 1957 West Virginia Legisla~ture. The la:wmakers imposed a pen- alty of 10 per cen,t of the annual license fee for each month of de- linquency. That amounts to~ 50 cents a month for stores falling under the 'special' c~tegory and $1.50 a mont~h for holders of 'gen eral' licenses. Prior to insertion of t~he penalty provision many applican,ts were far in arrrars in payment of the license fee. ActAon of the 1957 Legislature has also paid dividends in the Ge~n eral License Division of our de- partment. The Le~isla:tor~ decided that the general licenses s~hould be issued $I.00 $1.00 should Check and refresh material if needed in Arrangemer~t Sec~Uons $3.00 6.

Tlmrefore, it might be an over- simplification to point ouL that if granting the steel workers' de- mands is most apt to lead to an inflationary spiral, is i:t not equal- ly true that a prolonged period of idleness on the part of the work- ers i,n America's mo~t basic in- dustry might produce a deflat- ionary result? This poses a very dangerous dilemna.

Mr. Lippman has t'aken the view that ,the economic facts of the Twentieth Century make such an attitude untenal~le and that it is not only the right but She duty of the government to intervene so that each of these dangerous forces may be contain- ed. Hence the issue becomes one of bei,ng neither pro-managemenl or pro-labor; it becomes an issue invol-ing t'he survival of the whole economy, and makes ,the interven tion of the government a necess- ity lest the two giant,s destroy themselves and all the rest of us with t'hem. Traditional Republicanism dic- tates a policy of non-i,ntervention But one of the great, weaknesses of l~he Republican party is that Pt is so hide-~bou,nd by its tradition al philosophy that it most frequev. tly fails to recognize that what w~s a sound and tenable view a quarter of a ceniury ago can no longer be main~tai,ned in view of t~he economic facts of the Mid- Twentieth Century. In fact one of She great fundamental general dif ferences between the Democratic and Republican parties is the fact that the Democra,ts have adopted fluid and {lexible philosophies to meet changing circumsta,nces v~hile the Republicans l~ave insist- ed on clinging to the obsolete be- lief t~hat yesterday's rules could be applied to .today's problems. If one is in, terested in determining why there are more Democrats than Republicans in ,the country the would do well to begin wit)h t,his ge,aeral premise. Independent Fire Co.

The total swelled to $269,042.01 for the 1958-59 fiscal year.
