Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - January 6, 1953, Mason City, Iowa EDITORIALS i The Real Point at Issue i i 7 r in the Filibuster Dispute TNthe refusal of the Senate Republicans f to close the door tightly and permanent ly against that old enemy of the democra tic concept known as the filibuster there was more involved than appeared on the surface To accomplish the objective there had to be an assumption that eacli Senate is a new body rather than a continuing body And the factual evidence is against rather than on the side of that assumption Those opposed to the filibuster led by Humphrey Minnesota Democrat and Tvcs New York Republican took the position that the Senate as a new body was free to patteVn its rules to meet its ends TT just and this isnt even sub to argument that the Senate at no time is made up predominantly of new nierTibers Approximately two thirds in any session of Congress are holdovers from the previous session This would place the weight of evidence back of the premise that the Senate is a continuing body and as such its rules can be changed only as they themselves pro vide Thats where Rule 22 comes along hi addition to requiring the vote of 64 senators to break a filibuster by limiting debate No 22 provides that debate may not be limited at all on any motion to take up a change in the rules THE late Thomas J Walsh of Montana one of the most eminent lawyers ever to sit in the Senate argued that the Sen ate was not a continuing body inasmuch as all bills before it automatically lapse with the end of each Congress The Montana man pointed out that in the House the rules dont survive the Congress at which they were adopted But to admit that the rules of an expiring Senate have always in the past carried over to anew Senate automatically Its ironical that a deliberative body can be kept from doing what the majority of its membership obviously wants to dp Its an affront to the one most basic con cept of by majority But there it is And many who arc un happy about it are afraid that correcting it by illegal means would hurt worse than its continuation Slender G 0 P Margin WHEN the 63rd Congress met in 1913 there was one House seat for every 211430 inhabitants of the 48 states as shown by the 1910 census When the 83rd Congress convened Saturday there was one House seat for ever 346431 inhabi tants of the 48 states as shown by the 1950 census Two years from now the pop ulation total will be even larger because the 435 total House membership will re main fixed This was the 10th Congress to open its session in January approximately two months after being elected Before t h e adoption of the 20th Amendment in 1933 each Congress opened its first regular ses sion in the December of the year following its election that is 13 months after it had been elected However many earlier Congresses had been called into special ses sion prior to regular sessions The 83rd Congress isthe second in 22 years with a Republican majority in both branches No party in history however has ever controlled both branches at the same time with majorities so slim as those of the GOP in the new Congress L00KOUT BIG BUSINESS By Cqrgill

Many parents are and for hose willing lo do more than wring their hands in despair there are steps which can be taken to improve this situation Dr T W If Martin inspector of public schools in Toronto Canada stales that good taste in reading is not a of instinct nor is it an inherited characteristic It is acquired Tie says that children have a liking for vivid color rapid action and considerable violence Their lastc in literature is governed by only two factors subject matter and readability Parents wishing to develop in their children an appreciation and liking for good books often can do so by makingavailable In them interesting il lustrated books of the proper age level They should be encouraged to browse among books at home in school and at the public library Chil drens magazines also offer wholesome rending material Eventually Dr Martin says there comes a time when the child can tell from the cover about what is likely to happen Then his liking changes He has had his fill of blood and thunder and is ready lo lake another step upward along Ihe path lending lo literary good taste It is at that mn ment that it is highly desirable to have a wido se lection of belter books available for his choice TV and College Football Remember 7 SOME newspapers are critical yf college imposed restraints on football televi sion but more are not In effect TV is a device for removing stadium walls and letting the public see athletic contests for free Until college authorities can see that this is to their advantage theyre not go ing to consent to it Those engaged in TV and those who view TV need to look at the problem from the college point of view To question the ethical or moral right of colleges to run their own business is a bit on the absurd side Will They Go Back Home rpHEY

card that will show when he left the inter change also license number of car that must be presented for inspection at the interchange ahead A system similarto this is used on the Chicago pike to de note overtime transfers 3 At regular intervals erect time posts then if a driver arrives ahead of time he should be put off at the nearest interchange as punishment Speeding on all roads must slop Mr Nicklas asserts The law enforcement must discipline the speeder If necessary the state must expel its bad drivers Smoother Riding note that theres to be smoother riding for our U S Senators this
