EDITORIAL
 
 1 THE JOB BEFORE US
 
WHAT PRICE GLORY THIS TIME?
The U.S. has the best plans in history for reconverting 15 million G.L.'s. But veterans and
employers alike must watch out for booby traps.
DRAWINGS BY REGINALD MARSH
COLORED MAP OF AFRICA AND THE MIDDLE EAST
 
HALF OF THE WORLD
Dependent peoples, through regional organization and the application of new
concepts of colonial development, may reap great gains from the war.
JOSEPH M. JONES
 
IF THE WAR ENDS NOW:
                     WHERE DO WE STAND?
Contract termination: excellent. The war surplus: poor. Orderly reconversion: a beginning.
The human side: mixed objectives. Fiscal policy: awful.
 
2 THE WORKING FRONT
 
COMMERCIAL SOLVENTS
...in the last war meant gunpowder; in this war, penicillin; in the postwar, limitless products.
Not the biggest chemical company but the most exciting.
 
PUSHING THE PENS
The Parker Pen Co. designs its pens the better to advertise them and advertises them
the better to sell them. Then it sells ink to fill them.
 
THE FREIGHT-RATE BATTLE
Docket No. 28,300-the ICC's hottest potato-embodies the sectional jealousies of
four-fifths of the nation. Soon the harassed commission must speak up.
 
3 AMERICA AND THE FUTURE
 
BOMBERS BY BEALL
The man who fathered the Boeing B-29 Superfortress for war
finds it even more hazardous to plan the airplane for peace.
 
ECONOMICS OF A FREE SOCIETY
A declaration of American economic policy.
by William B. Benton
 
THE MUCH PROMISED LAND
Armed, angry, uncompromising, backed by outside brethren, the Arads and Jews
of Palestine confront each other--and us with a hard choice now.
BY F. LAWRENCE BABCOCK
BERNARD PERLIN--DRAWING
 
DEPARTMENTS
 
LETTERS TO FORTUNE
 
FARM COLUMN
Rural industry: a solution?...No government subsidy this time...$100 million from cobs?...Short cuts.
BY LADD HAYSTEAD
 
BUSINESS AT WAR
Previews, Inc., sells estate owners on property "salesmanagement"... A new prepasted wallpaper
helps those who hang their own...Artists produce a successful plywood splint.
 
FORTUNE SURVEY
Both the Republican and Democratic parties need a few repairs to make
 them fit the U.S. public's ideas of what a party should be.
 
MANAGEMENT POLL
Ruml's new tax plan versus the Twin Cities plan--
a vote by the nation's business executives.
