A —Although the House Judiciary committee voted by 20 to $ to recommend to the House th# adoption of a proposed amendment to the Constitution, to be submitted to the several states, whereby a President would be limited to two term> of four year- each, the nature of the opposition is a surprise All the votes against ti* proposal came from Democrats. Before IMO, in fact throughout American history, the two-term tradition was so widely approved that no constitutional amendment was really deemed necessary, though from tim# to tim# scattered proposal* were made for a single term of xix years. It would be most unfortunate If 'he Democratic party, which has traditionally opposed more than two terms, should now become shortsighted and think ot the new proposal ax a reflection on what Franklin Roosevelt did In breaking the two-term tradition and accepting four terms. Th# theory that the United States may need a particular man in an emergency presuppose* that wisdom or administrative capacity is rare and that "emergen*!**" are infrequent. Actually, there la an "emergency" every four year* when th# party In power. Its henchmen and lieutenants and j hangers-on, fear that they may be j turned nut of office. No "emergency" la greater to some individuals than the prospect of a lo*' of th* power that goes with pub- I lie office. Rome church philosopher* and theories may talk of th# "profit motive" as had. but they ar# babes in the woods when they overlook the evils and wickedness of the | power motive” in government. Th# profit motive has its had points and abuses should be condemned. But the abuse of the profit motive at Its worst affects narrow segment of the national picture, whereas the power motive government, when abused, affects all the people id all walks life and can destroy human liberty, Any scheme which tends to perpetuate a party or a clam in possession of government*! powers la dangerous. To find the Democratic party—which, in its nation-con vent Ion in lfl2 tinder the leadership of that great liberal William Jennings Bryan, adopted single term” plank—now arguing for four or more terms for President la to ohaerro what a reactionary party th# Democratic party really has become under New De ah'tv Even Preside lit-Sect Woodrow Wilson, who obJeded in February 1913 to the single-term proposal, said In his famqua letter to House Leader Palmer that th# two-term tradition was widely accepted and that, if It was necessary to amend the Constitution, the amendment should be for the customary two term* of four years each. Mr. Wilson nevertheless wrote, as many students of government es today, that rigid tenure la not the answer. He favored something akin to the Canadian parliamentary system. If repi#'#iitatlve government is to succeed in th* United States and if cent rallied control by a federal establishment is accepted- -as it has been ever since the New Deal Supreme Court rewrote the "rommelce Hsu-#" of th# Constitution by saying that virtually ail businesses are engaged in “interstate commerce”—then a better check on th* executive and legitimise branch . of the go\#mment by the people I* imperative jm ll ll MIW M •I feel like a social outcast—everybody else in the club has a lovely new spring hat with flower* on it!” The Doily WASHINGTON MERRY-GO-ROUND Bf Drew Pearson Drew Pearson’s Tribute to Gardner, Before Envoy Died UMTOR'H MITE — The fellowing Washington Merry -Go-Round column wa* written by Drew Pearson about O.

Earlier, th# army made a bad mistake on long-range pursuit planes. Major De Seversky, the hard-hitting ex-Russton flier, had begged and Implored th* air corps to build long-range fighter planes, also urged armor plate for bombes. In return he got a slap in the toe* from Gen. Hap Arnold, then chief of the air corps. Later, Pearl Harbor caught us with no long-range fighters and with only a start toward putting armor plat* on bombers Th# mistake not only delayed th# war. but cost Uves, Secretory Patterson was not responsible for that mistake, but, realizing ll had been made, he aet (.ut to rectify it, Toward the end of the war he called in Major De Seversky, asked him to under take an all-battle-from study of U. S. air service*. And to further atone for the snub given De Seversky, Patterson is giving him the Medal of Merit for "exceptionally merltor-ous conduct In the performance of outstanding service to th* United States. NOTE — Speaking of righting mistakes, air force officers this week take exception to a recent statement in this column that the air forces aren't enthusiastic over their aub-cablnet rank in the proposed army-navy merger. They say that, on the contrary, they ar# delighted with this arrangement. The column gladly makes this correction. Bilbo's Next Move Senator-elect Theodor# G.
