Winona Republican-Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 1, 1949, Winona, Minnesota COLDER TONIGHT, WEDNESDAY VOLUME 49, NO. 218 WINONA, MINNESOTA, TUESDAY EVENING, NOVEMBER 1, 1949 FIVE CENTS PER COPY SUPPORT YOUR COMMUNITY CHEST SIXTEEN PAGES TODAY- Europe Asks Trade Unity To Recover By James Marlow Washington Europe must "unify its economy." That is what! Hoffman, head of the Mar- shall plan, has just told Europe. This is a rough explanation of his meaning. The problem is not sim- ple. The Marshall plan, due to! end in has helped Europe; recover. What may hap- pen after the plan's help ends? Will Europe stumble, stagger and collapse? Unless it's con- vinced Europe is making a strong effort to help it- self after 1952. Cor.g.ress may start cutting down the plan be- fore :hem. So Hoffman tells Europe to ify its economy." To understand' what he has in mind, first look atj the United States of America. The 48 states all use the same money. .None limits what another can send into it. Trade moves across state lines as if they didn't exist. Since the 48 states have about 150.000.000 people, that's a terrific market for sales in any line. Competition Grows To win thai, market, the various manufacturers have to compete against one another by selling as cheaply as they can. That means learning how to make their products as cheaply possible. The efficient ones pros- per, the inefficient go out of busi- ness. The thinking behind the Aroeri-j can system is this; by selling atj the lowest possible price, throughj efficient production, you sell toj more people. The more you can sell, the more you want to turn oui since it means more profit for you. But the more you can turn out, the greater the need for workers to turn it out. That increases employment whlch means more people with money to spend and, in turn, ision Q State Executive Council Clears rostero Marlow un- Dollar Bail Planned en Convicted Reds New govern- ment asked bail for the 11 convicted communist leaders today in the event they nre let out of jail while their appeals are being heard. Irving S. Shapiro, special as- sistant to the U. S. attorney, told the U. S. circuit court of appeals that this was tho view of Attorney General J, Howard McGrath. Shapiro said the government would want bail each for seven of the convicted men and for each of the four others. All 11 have been in jail since their conviction last month on charges of conspiring to advo- cate overthrow of the U. S. government by force. Federal Judge Harold K. Me- dina refused to free them on bail pending their appeals. Lawyers for the 11 asked the appeals court today to overrule Medina. The court reserved decision.

Cowie today disqualified himself to preside at the first dcjirrce murder trial of Arnold Larson, 35, accused slayer of Dr. James McLoone. Judge Cowie made the an- nouncement as Larson was ar- raigned and entered a plea of innocent through his attorney, Philip Arneson of La Crosse. The veteran jurist, a long- time acquaintance of the slain physician, said Circuit Judge Koland J. Stsinle of Milwaukee would preside. He set the trial for 10 a. m.

So his production costs are higher. cd He'd have to be more efficient, producing more cheaply, if he were competing against hntmakers in all 43 states. But doesn't he have to compete against other New- York Imtrrmkcrs to capture the New York trade? Not if the New York hatmakers make deals, dividing up the New- York market nmoncr themselves so all of them can stay in business, his prices stay up. This picture of the 48 states, is crudely, the picture of modern Eu- rope. So when Hoffman tells Europe to "unify its economy." he's urging a European economic setup lik" that of the United States: Elimi- nation of trade barriers, competi- tive production for 270.000.000 Eu- ropeans instead of the people of just one nation and the jobs and' efficiency he thinks that would; mean, plus a straightening out of: the tangled European money sys-l tern. Hoffman is talking of an eco- nomic Europe something like the! United States. He's not suggesting i oil fnrm FOSTER tion further so more arthritis vic- tims may be aided.
