Burlington Herald (Newspaper) - November 23, 1950, Burlington, Iowa
In Buk Unton Hebald Page s editorial. X Quot search for the truth is the noblest occupation of Man its publication a duty. De Stasi. Good sense can stand by itself the report on the City of Burlington by the two Denver students has been criticized because of the background of its authors. A How it is Askel a can two College students who Don t even live Here really know anything about Burlington Quot it is obvious that the two College students came to know a great Deal about Burlington during their stay. It is obvious too that the recommendations they made in their report were based on careful penetrating study. The recommendations however must stand on their own merits. They cannot be criticized simply because they Are the ideas of two out of town College students. If the recommendations make sense then they make sense regardless of their source. It is significant that most of the critics of the Denver report Are also critics of the Council manager which was recommended by the students As the Best form of government for Burlington. But the Point holds there too. If the Council manager plan can stand on its own merits then it needs to be adopted regardless whether an individual thinks highly of its supporters or not. The ideas Are the important things not the personalities concerned. Appreciate this Friendship.

Knowland does t qualify senator William Knowland r., Cal currently on a a fact finding Quot trip to the Pacific let it be known the other Day that he would fight any plan to lend Money to Yugoslavia As Long As United states Aid is refused the chinese nationalist government of Chiang Kai Shek. Knowland is the senator being pushed for a place on the Senate foreign relations committee the place which has been designated by senator Vandenberg to belong to Liberal Republican senator Morse of Oregon. Knowland s opposition to the administration s policy in the far East Quot extends Back a ways but it has t changed much during the past couple of years. Knowland is one of those people who a still Ding to the illusion that by giving unlimited military Aid to the nationalists we could run the communists out of China. Knowland is Basing his opposition on something that has never been quite evident especially since the course he advocates has been denounced As Sui Decd by every major military figure who has Given any thought to it. The republicans might Dedde to Over ride Vandenberg and put Knowland on the foreign relations committee but judging by the senator s pronouncements on China it would seem that such a step would be As sensible As making colonel Mccormick Secretary of state. And those who want to do the former would probably see a lot of sense in the latter a the Rocky Road to Roosevelt Avenue the longest East West Street in Burlington is division Street extending All the Way from main Street to Roosevelt Avenue. Viewed from a map of the Day division Street appears to be a vital Crosstown thoroughfare. But the actual Case is otherwise. From main to Leebrick division Street is paved in alternating sections of Brick and Concrete. Beyond Leebrick to Roosevelt division Street is Little More than a wide unpaved Back Hills country Road. Except for about a Hundred feet of Asphalt paving in front of a single residence in the 2700 Block division Between Leebrick and Roosevelt is a gravel Road evidently solid enough but no smoother than gravel roads usually Are. Judging by the haphazard Way Burlington s streets Are Laid out it would seem that division Street As one of the few Long straight streets would be paved along its full length if for no other reason than to spread the traffic Burden now earned by West Avenue and Agency Street. It would seem too that the paving of division Street would come before the resurfacing and repairing of some of the Short and insignificant residential streets that have been included in the Street department s recent improvement program.

A it was immediately apparent i i that a n n m b e r of successful i i gop candidates were going to j i proceed on the Assumption that i i their a pm i i t a n t anti comma j la ism brought the support of i Ujj the people to their Side. Senator 9 Hickenlooper in Iowa senator i of select Butler in Maryland Vari i Loos representatives from widely i a diverse sections of the country i i seemed to have finally decided i i that the american people put b i them in office for the express i Ujj purpose of patting Secretary of Al state Dean Acheson and a few bothers out of office. I h As soon As those words Werel spoken other feelers appeared. A i few cautious statements were i made to the effect that the re i publican party believed that the lend of extensive foreign Aid must a borne soon the Marshall plan it iwas said had poured enough Good a american dollars into foreigners i pockets. A it will be on this question of the extent of foreign Aid that one of the most bitter congressional Battles of the next two years will be fought excluding the outbreak of a major War since such a development would radically alter cur rent thinking if not in detail in attitude. Between now and the time recommendations for the Extension of Marshall plan Aid Are specifically brought before Congress the fundamental Points of the great debate will have been clearly made. As time progresses there will be Long and fervent discussions of the rightness a or a a wrongness of continued material assistance and the real test of the lasting Quality of the american Peoples interest in foreign affairs will be made. Because essentially the ques Ilion of foreign Aid hinges on the Basic popular approach to inter to emotional relations. If americans Are returning to isolationism then their opposition to continued Aid will become More and More outspoken. If the american people have decided that american Aid to foreign nations is the Best Way to preserve peace then the Republican party a opinion will be a lonely one.

At such times when both parties come to swords Points Over fundamental political ideals both parties fall Back upon Over simple citation because Only by oversimplifying can they make their Case a matter of taking either Black or White. Soon they will be saying a look. Here Are the alternatives this Way is our Way and this Way you survive. That Way is their Way and that Way you commit take it or leave it. Foreign Aid or no foreign Aid. Graft or no graft. Handouts or no handouts. America first or America not at All. Communism or democracy. Take your pick. E e e it seems to this writer that the Cost of preparedness a in military equipment personnel training research not Only for the United states but for the Atlantic pact nations and others too is rapidly approaching the Point where it can seriously and permanently cripple our Economy. It seems that continued vast spending will mean going far beyond the a print of diminishing in contrast reduced spending May Jwell invite disaster. There appears to be reason to believe that a sudden end to foreign1 rid military and otherwise could put us at a serious military disadvantage by futher increasing the numerical superiority of the potential enemy. At any rate the possibilities on both sides Are formidable and complicated. The eventual results of a particular course of action cannot be determined he course must be decided upon very carefully after Long thorough mud painstaking consideration. But under the circumstances it does no to appear that that is to be the Way the matter is to be decided. A Black or White instead. I to bar a weedy a a Tny Arad a Marv 1 Wilbur Skourup. Or.
