Editor Elmer F McCartney Manneer COWBOY TAYLOR PLEDGES TO DO WHAT I THINK IS RIGHT The last time John L Lewis walked out of the American Federation of Labor he announced his departure with this brief message We dis But when Sen Glen H Taylor walked out of the Democratic Party the other day he was not content with such a simple valedictory He had a lot to even one sentence too much The singing from Idaho confessed that felt good to be free of the bosses He was glad he was not obliged to a program laid down by Mr Pew Colonel McCormick Senator Taft and the National Association of Manufac He rejoiced that he come out swinging as Henry Wallaces running mate without fear of stepping on the prejudices or privileges of some unsavory associate no no oil no Wall Street no generals no privileged Probably Mr Taylor have stopped there But in the press conference that followed his radio address reporters asked him about the report that Communists were flocking to the thirty party Id be glad to have the votes of bank robbers the votes of bank robbers if I can get elected to do I think is he replied What Mr Taylor thinks is night is obviously what Mr Taylor wants to do So let us put his this way Id beglad to have the votes of bank robbers If I can get elected to do what I want to There is the essence of the worst type of political bossism And we are not twisting Mr Taylors words to state it Ask any boss Do you think that what you are doing is right and how many do you think would answer no Mr Taylor now thinks himself free of unsavory But he and Mr Wallace know that If they were elected their bank and Communists and assorted ragtag and bobtail would expect return A political candidate half as highminded aa Mr Taylor presents himself to be would reject the support of the criminal the disloyal and all other unsavory characters If he had the true gospel of political salvation Messrs Wallace and Taylor think they have he would never make such a statement as the Idaho not even in a thoughtless moment The truly highminded candidate wants the sup port of likeminded people He cannot avoid the practical aspects of politics But he can promise the great majority of the electorate only that he will carry out the general program that he has offered and that they subscribe to His object is to keep that promise after election not to get elected by any or crook and then proceed to do what I think is That last way is the way of the Hitlers the Huey Longs come down to sideshow politicians whose chief appeal to the voters is a banjo cowboy clothing and a repertory of hillbilly songs Religion Day By Day By WILLIAM T Hold Your Hats Folks Hes Off Again If a man die shall he live again This question has been asked through the ages It has haunted the the Christian religion got started highminded men In all parts of the world were making this query The Egyptians had a very confident belief about immortality The Greek philosophers several centuries before Christ was born dilated much on this theme Through the centuries men of much learning and little have reflected at length on this vital matter Common sense tells us that God would hardly go to the pains He has to create human life only to wipe it out after a few brief years Also the whole of human life and institutions appears to be characterized by incompleteness Something is needed beyond the readies of our restricted world to finish what is here begun Man hungers for Im mortality and since there is a natural hunger there must be something provided somewhere in the universe to satisfy that hunger But religion goes beyond philosophy Reason makes immortality plausible but it does not prove it In fact such a belief cannot be proved in the mathematical sense It must be accepted on faith and when it is so accepted it proves itself amid the experiences of life For the philosopher immortality is a hope for the man of faith it is a living reality if WASHINGTON COLUMN Marshall Gives Congress

argument over U S Russian policy It isnt surprising therefore that when Secretary of State George Marshall presented his Chinese program to the HOUM Foreign Affairs Committee the questioning developed into a free forall that covered the globe but bounced back frequently on the Russian question Congressman John M Vorys Ohio began it when he asked H the situations in Greece and China werent similar It its all right to give military aid to fight communism in Greece not in China Marshall pointed out some differences Most the people Greece he said were not on the side of the guerrillas The guerrillas got their support from outside Greece Marshalls intimation was that in North China the people are the Congressman Karl Mundt S raised the question of TJ S policy in Germany It was obvious said Mundt that the administration wanted to continue the Morgenthau program He wati referring to of the Treasury Henry war time plan to reduce Germany to a farming country by destroying to manufacturing capacity Mundt also charged the administration with exporting to eastern European countries types of products which enabled Communists to terrify western Europe Bluntly Mundt said he wanted to know what steps were being taken by the State Department other than those costing the U S money all over the world rfc were serious challenges With apparent calmness Marshall patiently set to work to answer With respect to the plan Marshal said General Clay in Berlin had only recently declared that he considered Germany an important part of European economy and that recovery was essential As for the rest of the world Marshall said the U S had an interest in the Far East the Mediterranean Europe and Latin America Con ditions differed in all To come in with one estimate for all at time was not practical In China the American aim was to bring about a degree of stabili In Greece the purpose was to make a solid country as a bulwark Mundt was not satisfied with this brief summary of foreign He had a feeling he said that in order to work out agreement with Russia there should be rules of reciprocity He mentioned that last year 3000 Russians had been admitted to the U S The Soviet had even refused to let a group of senators inspect the U S Embassy in Moscow Mundt demanded a stiffening of policy admitted the situation was disagreeable But the U was struggling for certain freedoms Reciprocity had to be care fully weighed for its end results It is simple to break off negotia said Marshall It is hard to make them Congressman Walter Judd raised the question of the Yalta Agreement which gave 30year Manchurian port and rail rights to Russia Marshall had to admit he had no part in making the terms of that agreement though he attended the Yalta Conference as chief of staff At that time he felt it important for Russia to commit herself in Manchuria to break Jap power in China Todays difficulties over the Yalta and Potsdam Agreements the same said Marshall They
