Stuart Symington, chair- man of the National Security Re- sources board, have been trying to persuade Chester Barnard, pres- ident of the New Jersey Bell Tele- phone Company, to stick his head in a noose. The noose is, of course, the chairmanship of the Economic Stabilization agency, the vital price and wage control job. Whether or not this poisoned chalice is accepted by or by another (and the appointment! may be made before this report j appears in print) the polite but firm refusals which Truman and Symington have already Had from a number of able men are signi- ficant. For there is no longer the faintest doubt that the whole hide- ous apparatus of lull controls will soon have to be imposed on the economy. And the plain fact is tbat the situation which the new version of Chester Bowles will be asked to control is already very nearly uncontrollable. It Is not yet widely under- stood just how vicious is the inflation which has begun to at- tack the national economy. One measure is the fact that current defense appropriations will buy almost 3 billion do3- lars less than would have been the case only a few weeks ago. Another measure is thaj for the first time "frighten, pd money" is beginning to run from the' dollar, favoring Ca- nadian or South American cur- rencies, on the theory that the value of the dollar is no long- er stable.

U. S. First Cavalry division, which has wheeled nearly 200 miles since mid-September, seized the key border city. On the east coast, South Korean troops were reported within 20 miles of Wonsan, deep in Red territory. The rapid advance of the First Cavalry troopers from their last re- ported position, in the Suwon area 20 miles south of liberated Seoul, in- jcheated, they may spearhead the ex- pected big push of United Nations forces on the Red capital. North of Seoul The Air Force spokesman's report caine only a few hours after General MacArthur's summary disclosed for the first time that the cavalry di- vision was north of Seoul. The summary said the cavalry- men had crossed the Irojin river, 30 miles northwest of the liberated South Korean capital. Kaesong, eight miles farther northwest, is the largest city on the fringes of the Red border. From Kaesong, the Reds made their heaviest invasion thrust against the U.N.-sponsored republic June 25. The city is astride the main highway and rail route to the Com- munist capital, 92 air to the i northwest. There were no details of Kaesong's capture, reported to A.P. Corres- pondent Hal'Boyle by a U. S. Fifth Air Force spokesman. MacArthur's summary had said the troopers only scattered resistance in hurdling iYour Are Proud of Him- By official edict, today, the last day of Na- tional Newspaper week, has been specifically set aside to honor one whom'we consider in the profession to be an important Newspaperboy. He has earned the honor well. There are nearly copies of Amer- ican newspapers printed daily. To him and his associates throughout the nation goes the re- sponsibility for distribution of a large part of that tremendous product. He is the most in- timate link between the newspaper and its readers. However good a newspaper, it has not achieved its ultimate goal until it gets to the reader, without delay or inconvenience. That is why we consider your Newspaperboy very important. Whip Phils In Deciding Game, 5-2 New York Knocks Rookie Bob Miller Out in 1st Inning the wide banks of the Imjin. There is more than money along his route. As he accepts the responsibility, he learns salesmanship and business management; he is taught the value of thrift and industry; he gains self-confidence and the lifelong know- ledge that courtesy pays dividends. It is the kind of training which only direct contact with adults in a mutually beneficial enterprise can furnish. And, too, busy boys are better boys.
