Editorials features the Gladewater daily Mirror Page four thursday May 25, 1950 Washington merry go round top drawer democrats unhappy Over manner in which funds were raised does the pocketbook come first the Independent of Bridgewater mass., recently carried an article by a farm Bureau spokesman who said a sad but True most of us Are More interested in our pocketbook than in our i he reason for this observation was that two meetings had been held in that area. One had to do with socialized Medicine which the farm Bureau federation has strongly opposed it was expected that about a thousand people would turn out but the actual attendance was Only 2u0 and Many of them a it re doctors. The next Day there was a Public hearing on plans to repeal the tax on cigars and tobacco and 750 people appeared. The writer said a the general Public should have been tar More worried Over the Medicine that the government is trying to make us take than in the Price of a Good Cigar. Socialized Medicine is just one step in a planned Economy where government takes Over certain key functions and controls All the Here is a tragic example of Public lethargy toward great issues that will influence All our lives and the lives of generations to come socialized Medicine As Lenin once said. Is an Arch in the Structure of the communist state. Current proposals for compulsory government health insurance Are simply a prelude to eventual socialization. They Are part and parcel of an All inclusive scheme for giving the government Iron handed Power Over the resources and energies of the nation. And that is certainly More important than the Price you have to pay for tobacco every possible Means must be used to awaken the general Public to the dangers that confront them. A sleeping nation unaware of what is going on is just what the socialists want.

That s All today. See you tomorrow by Drew Pearson copyright. 1950, by the Bell Syndicate inc Washington May 25.�?top-drawer democrats were not Happy when they got to Chicago and discovered the manner in which a Quarter of a million dollars had been raised to Welcome president Truman to Chicago. First a ruling was obtained from toe internal Revenue Bureau that donations to the Host committee were a Charity gift and tax deductible. Chicago it was argued was playing Host to the president regardless of politics. Having secured this local democrats mailed a copy of the internal Revenue ruling to prospective donors with an Appeal for funds. And in the same letter believe it or not they inserted the schedule of democratic political activities. When George Killion sex treasurer of the democratic National committee arrived in Chicago he showed the nonpolitical Appeal for tax deductible funds with the democratic events schedule to chairman Bill Boyle. A that fool nato Lichtblau a growled Killion. A it s the first i knew about it a remarked the worried Boyle. Later he reported the whole matter to president Truman. Note the Chicago daily news and sex congressman Everett Dirksen gof candidate for the Senate made the most of democratic red faces and of the huge amounts of Money contributed by the liquor interests to the Truman reception. Rough and Tumble veep you can to beat Alben Barkley when it comes to rough and Tumble debate or after dinner speeches. The other Day in Chicago Barkley pulled a near Miracle. The occasion was the big democratic rally honouring Thomas Jefferson just before president Truman arrived from the West. The dinner was poorly handled. The toastmaster forgot to introduce postmaster general Donaldson and Secretary of the Navy Matthews. Jack Arvey staged a show of dancing girls from Chez Paree while in contrast Motherly congresswoman Mary Norton of new Jersey droned out a 30-minute speech. By this time it was nearly Midnight the Honor guest table was almost empty and the audience was ready to go Home. But Barkley was still to be heard from. Most sneakers would have been too discouraged to Start. But the vice president got to the Point of what other speakers had ignored a the real Story of Thomas Jefferson. He described the details of his Iii his influence on the nation and did it in such a Way that the tired and milling audience actually listened. Absent congressman this column leaning backward to congressman Thurmond Chatham of North Carolina recently explained his prolonged absence record from Congress by the fact that his wife had passed away to months ago and he had not been aide to concentrate on his work. That explanation May have been Overly generous. Since then it has been Learned thai congressman chathams absence has been partly due to House parties at his Currituck sound cottage. Two weeks ago furthermore he brought mrs. John t. Barnes. Jr., wife of a Reynolds tobacco offi Cial to the Baptist Hospital at Winston Salem at 2 30 a. In., May 8, with a severe Gash at the base of her Skull. Mrs. Barnes 35 years old and a prominent socialite was suffering from loss of blood. Or. Barnes arrived at the Hospital at 5 a. In. Hospital authorities nurses and internet flatly refused to discuss the incident but congressman Chatham when queried said that mrs. Barnes had been dining with others on his Terrace had caught Lier dress in a chair and fallen hitting her head against a Marble Wall. We Are delighted to accept the congressman a Story but it should also be noted that his prolonged absences from Congress apparently Are not entirely due to the loss of his wife. Merry go round Secretary of state Acheson is so tired following his London conferences that he cabled the state department that he is not to be disturbed on tile voyage Home no matter How Many speeches senator Mccarthy makes about him. Francis Pickens Miller the Bvrd machines sworn foe in Virginia tossed a real hot potato at sen. Harry Byrd. He proposed a Virginia state a committee on reduction of nonessential senator Byrd uses his chairmanship of a similar committee in Congress to lire shots at the administration but no such probe of padded payrolls in Byrd controlled Virginia has Ever been dared before. Another hot fight Between right and left wings of the gof is on in North Dakota. Frank Vogel a Campaign manager for Quot old bobs la Follette s presidential Campaign in 1924, is running for governor. Professor Harold Urey famed atomic scientist from the University of Chicago is slated to be director of the new science foundation. Landlords have been getting such bad publicity Over High rens that the Norfolk va., real estate Board appointed a 22-Man committee to keep rents Down.

Trice Quot Driver of the year Quot Lloyd r e i s n e a 37-year-old truck Driver of Indianapolis was As Cool and collected As you would expect the a Driver of the year to be when he was congratulated by president Truman for his Highway safety feats. Truman himself seemed to get to bigger thrill than the truck Driver As Reisner told of saving a Little girls life on a Highway near Louisville by. A your highways Are becoming safer every year a remarked Truman. A and we have men like it of to thank for before departing Reisner got a prize presidential autograph for a nine y e a r o i d Indianapolis neighbor.

In tile midst of plenty a family of eight stand on the Brink of starvation. Tuesday night the frantic Mother of seven children gathered her Brood of hungry youngster around her in the dark and sobbed in despair through a Long and sleepless night. There was not a single crust of bread in the House. The Utility had turned off her source of water Light and Gas. Her husband had deserted the family leaving her alone to hold Back the flood Waters of abject poverty threatening to sweep Over her head. And in the distance Oil Wells pumped wealth from the ground. Lights licked on in nearby Homes is darkness grew Blacker and Famiie on the a a have Side of the Ledger happily sat Down to full tables of food completely unaware of the gnawing hunger of seven children not Many City blocks away. A three months old baby cried nervously in the dark and its 13 year old sister tried to Comfort tile baby s Mother in Lier despair. Hard to believe Isnit it yet ifs True. Something was being done about it Early wednesday morning As welfare worker mrs. W. R. Hostel heard about the family Dight. And a neighbor or two pitched in to help. The family had nowhere to go to since the Mother s aged parents had no Means of help her but a kindly nurse living nearby cooked some food for wednesdays luncheon and the children eased their hunger pain hurriedly uneasy lest the food disappear.
