Managing Editor Politics Isnt a Naughty Word QUIETLY and without fanfare a movement got under way in our country in the year just ended that could bring enormous benefits to future America Its goal is to GOP Hails Program as Dynamic r At Big 4 Meeting in Berlin attract our minds into service besttrained college the field of public Plan to Talk Over Atomic Offer Whereas in the past and at pres ent the word politics has car ried a connotation ranging from flippancy to downright sordidncss the program to which I refer will seek to restore to it the first mean ing which Noah Webster had in mind when he defined politics as the science of government A prime 1 guess I could say THE prime this significant movement is Ar thur T Vanderbilt at present chief justice of the New Jersey Slate Supreme Court but formerly dean of the School of Law at New York University which has become the center of what is designated as the Citizenship Clearing House Hes a True Scholar My own high regard for Mr Van derbilt was reflected in my en thusiastic but futile effort not so long ago to have him appointed to the Chief Justiceship of the United States Supreme Court following the death of Fred Vinson As a scholar of the law he has no superiors and few peers in the America of today Judge Vandcrbilts fellow barris ters a few years ago demonstrated their regard for him by making him President of the American Bar Association His Roscoe Pound lec tures at the University of Nebras ka probably stand as the ablest exposition ever written on the role of the legislative judicial and ex ecutive branches of our govern ment But Mr Vanderbilt hasnt lived his life in any ivory tower For 29 years he exemplified the ideafof the educator in politics First be led a reform movement within his party and thehfor many yearshe served as theofficial chief of that party in one of the countrysmost populous counties Wants Trained Leaders While somewhat insulated now from roughandtumble politics by reason of his position on the bench he has lost none of his oid zeal for training young men and womenfor intelligent and effective participa tion in politics The very preser vation of our democratic processes seems to him to be at stake in this principle But just havmg this idea would not have meant much if Judge Vanderbilt and those of like mind hadnt done something about it What they did meeting at the Law Center of New York University was to set up a program which would harness and make use of existent facilities and personnel in the colleges and universities of America In less than two years the Citi zenship Clearing House idea has been put to work in upwards of 15 states That about half of that number came into being in the last half of the year just closed is evi dence of how rapidly the program Is gaining momentum Iowa Latest Addition One of the latest units on the WASHINGTON State De partment said Monday Secretary Dulles and Russian Foreign Minis ter Molotov probably will meet and

conference He said American Ambassador Charles E Dohlon discussed the lens remarks under considera Presidents proposal with Mololov in Moscow fast Wednesday This first conversation said Suydam was to discuss the best method of procedure as to how the substantive talks should be con ducted In other words what the am bassador talked to the foreign min ister about was how best we can get actual negotiations going Suydam said Molotov took Boh tion and promised to gel in touch with him later Meantime the Western are planning to confront Russia with a threepoint German peace program at the Berlin conference if it appears that the Soviets show up with some serious intention to negotiate One effect of the program worked out by the United Slates British and French governments view of Western officials to wipe Powers out the Communist East German in a scries of meetings recently concluded at Paris would be in the government It therefore appears in advance to be wholly unacceptable

science depart ments and leaders in public affairs Democrats and Republicans alike For two days the conferees at the University of Iowa came to grips with the problem of how with the means at hand a wider and more effective participation in poli tics by talented young college graduates could be achieved In sounding the keynote for the meeting President Hancher of the University of Iowa repeated what for many years has been constantly on hisheart and often his lips namely that our fine and able young people must be made to know that political life is honorable and important If college
