offic One Mans lflfUf I A Radio Commentary By W EARL HALL GlobeGazette Editor A Last Look at Those 1954 Files prefer annua seem to the spring for their housecleaning operations but I have a preference for January Its then that I thumb back through my correspondence files with a view to determining which of the letters should be placed in my permanent file and which should be immedi ately discarded Its always a rather rewarding experience because it brings back into focus some of the subjects which have held my editorial at tention from time to time during the year just ended Quite frequently I must admit the reactions prompted by some of my views expressed either on my editorial page or in these com mentaries are of greater merii and better stated than my Own product In this little visit with you plan to show you just what I mean in this honest confession Im just now at the end of my annual chore I can report it proved most stim ulating and pleasant Im going to lead off with a challenging letter which reached me from Kirk H Porter head oi the Political Science Department at the University of Iowa after one of my commentaries calling for a realignment of American po litical parties liberal on one side Conservative on the other Not New Qutstion have heard that suggestion many times during the 35 years I have been the Iowa educator observed And I have a reply Thank goodness there is not such a difference between our parties that people have to rush out into the streets start riots break beads and spill blood When a President is defeated for reelection his supporters do not start a revolution They stand on the sidelines along with the winners while the defeated leader rides down Pennsylvania Avenue side by side with the victor shar ing applause from the crowd com posed of indistinguishable Dem ocrats and is Doctor Porter added of one of the great est achievements of a highly civil ized people who have attained a rare capacity for selfgovern Nor does this political scientist go along with the criticism fre quently lodged against students as being politically Unlikt Students Elsewhere 4I point to the bloody fighting precipitated by students in other lands and express my gratification that our young people have had bred into them that precious con cept of loyal opposition which makes civilized government pos Prof Porter explained he added implies a deep and abiding confidence in the essential loyalty patriotism and good intentions of virtually all our political leaders Its a priceless heritage and I do not want the difference between our parties to become so great that we come to look upon the opposition party leaders as villains and traitors We know very well they are Doctor Porter went on to de velop his thinking along this line In the last Presidential elec he recalled great numbers of people voted for Eisenhower who tlso held Stevenson in very high regard They would not have been much disappointed if Stevenson had my educator friend two nights before Christmas he said I wont go back into tha lions den to accept Rene Coty mandate to form a government and said he hoped to complete it b Thursday Pinay began his drive for a new cabinet with a touch of the same brusqueness that won Pierre Men desFrance the nickname of Mr France before he was topplec from the premiership Saturday Bu it was considered almost certain the National Assembly would re ject Pinays first bid for office so it could see who else would be of fered the job Pinay a businessman who mar ried the boss daughter and be came owner of a tannery held the job of premier in another period o crisis He tried for political sta bility then but his plan to save the franc tumbled before the di vided assembly In Conference Pinay after being asked by Coty to forma government talked to the leader of his own party the Na tional Center of Independents then shortly after midnight told news men I think it will be possible to present a cabinet to the National Assembly on Thursday at the lat Few political observers shared his optimism The general outlook was bleak since France has no gov ernment at time of the Formosa crisis it has no budget to pay its bill and it has no ministers to deal with new troubles at home and rearmament na tionalist resurgence in North Africa and a threatened political break down in Indochina Pinays first act was to
