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 oowbody from Idaho confessed that felt good to be free of the bigcity 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 oould come out swinging as Henry Wallaces running mate without fear of stepping on the prejudices or privileges of some unsavory associate no Pauleys no oil no Wall Street no generals no privileged Probably Mr Taylor ahould 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 itandard Id be glad to have the votes of bank robbers the votes of bank robbers if I can get elected to do iWhat 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 somethingin 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 pnly 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 ELLJtS 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 humanmind Longbefore 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 Points on Russian Policy DREW PCARSOK OM MERRYGOROUND Continued from First Page committee and laid down a new handpicked formula carefully selected

curtain The at tempt took place last July and here is the inside story When the Czech cabinet first heard about the Marshall Plan they sent a secret emissary to see then Undersecretary of State Will Clayton in Geneva and informed him that Czechoslovakia wanted to line up with the West In the past the Czech said Washington regularly gave his gov emment the brushoff as for in stance when Prague tried to buy worth of seed wheat in the United States for cash The offer was turned down cold meanwhile Russia gave the Czechs the wheat free Accord ingly the Czech agent suggested to Clayton that the Truman ad ministration strengthen Benes and Masaryk with a real gesture of friendship Clayton said he was willing and the Czech promptly proposed that the ExportImport Bank authorize a credit to Czechoslovakia Clayton tele phoned Washington got the loan Okd Meanwhile however Moscow began wielding the big stick the Czech cabinet caved in and Czechoslovakia pulled out of the Marshall Plan When

Truman doctrine on Greece and Turkey or aid to China finally m to an 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 activelysupporting the Congressman Karl Mundt S raised the question of TJ S policy in Germany It was obvious said Mundt that the Trumani administration wanted to continue the Morgenthau program He wati referring to exSecretary of the Treasury Henry Morgenthaus 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 nTHESE were serious challenges With apparent calmness Marshall patiently set to work to answer With respect to the Morgenthao 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 zation In Greece the purpose was to make a solid selfcontained 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 were in trying to get Russian comj
