Dixon Evening Telegraph (Newspaper) - August 31, 1963, Dixon, Illinois Jar the Man and the myth editor not follow inn is another article in a series by Walter Lasky excerpted from his forthcoming Hook if the Man Ani the myth Macmillan by Victor Lasky copyright i98a, by Victor Casky North american now Spaller Alliance it was amid the debris of Stevenson a electoral disaster that John Kennedy launched his own drive for the presidency. He had Good reason to lift his eyes As he put it a from the up to the for when the Senate convened in january 1957, he returned As one of the nations better known political figures. In 1957 Kennedy made some one Hundred and fifty appearances throughout the country. And he was spending a Good Deal of time in the South where his began drive like True son of the confederacy close invention loss to Estes Kefauver had made him a hero. Before the year was out Kennedy had become known As a a Dixie a favorite a southerners were Damn Nice to me at the convention Quot Kennedy told columnist Bob Considine. A and before that and Ever since. I could t ask to meet finer higher minded people than i met speaking recently in Virginia Georgia and Kennedy had become so popular below the Mason Dixon line that in december 1957 the Christian science monitors Bicknell Eubanks was Able to report a a glowing feeling throughout the Region that the Bay Stater May be the one to head a third party in though Kennedy criticized Eisenhower a role in Little Rock not once did he suggest How he personally would have handled that explosive situation. Only when pressed would he uphold a without applauding Quot As the a put it the supreme court decision on school desegregation. A whether we favor the decision or oppose it Quot he said in november 1957, a it is going to be carried out. It is the Law of the land there is no a final from aside from its noticeable restraint the statement was not entirely accurate. The fact was Law of the land or not the decision in its specific applications was being appealed on the eve of his arrival to address a democratic dinner in Jackson Mississippi the Republican state chairman challenged Kennedy to state How he Felt about Little Rock. The next night Kennedy found fifteen Hundred pairs of eyes staring at him expectantly. Quot i have no hesitancy Quot he said a in telling the Republican state chairman the same thing i have said in my own City of Bostons that i accept the supreme court decision As lie supreme Law of the land. I know we do not All agree on that issues but i think most of us do agree on the necessity to uphold Law and order in every part of the no response from the audience. Then Kennedy attacked a and now i Challenge the Republican chairman to Tell us where he stands on Eisenhower and the remark probably the non sequitur of the year brought Down the House. And his audience let Loose with rebel veils when Kennedy observed that the then Gap National chairman Meade Alcorn bore the same name As one of Mississippi a More unpopular reconstruction governors. For this remarkable display of erudition Kennedy then and there won the presidential blessings of governor James Coleman. In 1958 governor Coleman again endorsed Kennedy for the presidency. A the South likes Kennedy a he declared at the Southern governor s conference. And judging from what others were saying about Kennedy at the conference the associated press reported. A you would think that he was Dixie born a descendant of Robert e. Lee and a Man who eats Hominy grits and Corn Pone three times a just As Kennedy a cuddly rela Lions with Southern segregationists would tarnish his Liberal image in years to come so has the Kennedy profile suffered from his refusal to turn his Back on Joe i earthy. The trouble with wilting a in rank like profiles in courage was that. It opened up the whole subject of Kennedy a own courage. The test was Over Mccarthy ism. And How Kennedy faced this test demonstrated much about his character integrity responsiveness and As Eleanor Roosevelt put it his a convictions Quot and As Westbrook Pinter put it his a moral or As Arthur Schlesinger or. Put it. A Kennedy s misfortune was that by writing the Book he invited particular attention to his own circumspection in the Mccarthy but the test was also one for Arthur Schlesinger or. And his fellow liberals. And most of them failed it As badly As did Jack Kennedy. For among liberals the one thing that had Long separated tile Good Guys from the bad Guys was the Issue posed by the senator from Wisconsin. To the Schluc Sig ers it Al. This was the unbridgeable Gulf. Anyone who refused to make known his unequivocal hatred of mccarthyism or to speak of the a a unspeakable a Mccarthy in any terms other than those of total abuse was automatically declared Persona non grata. There could be no exceptions. Yet an exception was made in the Case of Jack Kennedy even though he refused to utter the ritualistic phrases condemning mccarthyism. And in making the exception the liberals brought into question their own principles. Perhaps the answer can ire found in the historic words uttered by Arthur Schlesinger or. In Harvard Yard in March 1960 a i guess in a nostalgically for Stevenson ideologically for Humphrey and realistically for and quickly added that he would gladly work for a any two legged Liberal mammal who might beat the liberals in other words were quite willing to Swallow John Kennedy mccarthyism and All in the name of beating Nixon at All costs.

Labor Day is such a familiar fixture on the National Calendar that it la somewhat surprising to realize it la one of our most recent holidays. True the first labor Day was held in new York City As far Back As 1882, and by 1894 Congress had legalized the Observance in the territories and District of Columbia. Yet Only for the past 40 years have All the states officially observed it. Four decades is a Short time in the life of a nation even one so Young As the United states. But labor Day is i rally established As a National habit. Undoubtedly this is because the Holiday has come to Mark the end of summer in our minds with schools starting up immediately afterwards and families split up into their various pursuits. It s the last Holiday until thanksgiving a Long three Day weekend just made for a Short trip or an Outing or perhaps it s an Opportunity to finish those chores around the House that have been put off All summer. This is so much the Case that most of us never think of the original reason for the Day that it was established As a recognition of and tribute to the american Labouring Man. But though we still Call it labor Day it is no longer labor s Day. Very few even those of us who carry Union cards will attend a labor rally monday. Few cities have parades any More. Yet at one time j labor Day was a Magnet drawing folks downtown to the Park to listen to the band and speeches and shoot off the fireworks left Over from the fourth of july. On one hand it is regrettable that the american scene has changed so much that we tend nowadays to Retreat from each other into our immediate families that labor Day has become a private Public Holiday. On the other hand this change in labor Day is part of the penalty of Success for the labor movement and for America. With recognition of labor has come the loss of a certain Militancy a certain separateness from a other Quot americans. No labor Day is no longer labors Day alone. It belongs to All americans for All of us Are labourers in the sense that the work we do contributes to the country a strength. Perhaps the name a labor Day is a Little anachronistic in 1963, almost a Misnomer. The word Quot Labory is not quite Broad enough to encompass the meaning the Holiday has acquired. It should have a name that tells the world just what free americans have accomplished for the working Man what we have achieved in the Way of the Good things in life not just material comforts but the Basic freedoms so much of the world has never known. The name for this Day should Tell the world How we Honor the working doing accomplishing Man by casually taking a Day off from the routine not by massing ranks of uniformed lathe operators or High school cadets and parading them in front of our a maximum still maybe we done to really need a new name for the Holiday.
