Mount Pleasant News (Newspaper) - August 18, 1958, Mount Pleasant, Iowa
The it. Pleasant news these Days by George e. Sokolsky conflict of interest in the executive Branch of the government More and More men of competence who have had experience in administration either in private Enterprise or in Large Public institutions Are employed. It is also preferable that the Public elect to Congress men or women who represent the particular groups and working habits of their communities because the Congress should be representative of All sections and All elements in the a Merican population not Only by lawyers and professional politicians. But the problem always arises whether such men. In dealing with Broad general matters do not find a conflict of interest. When there is a conflict of interest. Is it resolved in favor of the United states or in favor of the private affairs of the individual for instance in one of the recent tax debates senator Thurston b Morton of Kentucky at one stage took a position which he did not pursue to the Point of a vote. Whether he was right or wrong is not germane to this discussion but it seems to me that the senator might have advertised his expert Ness by explaining that he had for Vars been a director of Brown Forman a whiskey distillery in Kentucky and that his brother had also been a director of this company. He could also have said that Many members of his family Are associated with it. Why should he not have said 1 that not Only is the state of Kentucky the heart of this Industry but a i am an authority on this subject because i have been associated with it. Understand its Naturel and have had or have now or my family has now or has had. J whichever May be True a financial j interest in it. I know not by i hearsay but by experience what i am talking apparently politicians do not talk that Way. Charles Wilson when he went in As Secretary of defense had to sell his general motors Stock but under our system of government. A member of Congress is really a private citizen who May continue whatever private business he is in after he has joined the Congress if a member of Congress is also a member of a Law firm and that Law firm represents interests that Are affected by Bills that come before Congress should he disqualify himself on the grounds of Bias or should he fight for the Bill because that represents the Best interest of hts rom Muni to too government is a special kind of activity and in All countries it makes men feel More important than they really Are after All. A senator is a big Man or a piddling personality irrespective of his membership in that body As anyone can easily discover before and after what makes them important is that they have a vote which May be important to some one at some time. Of course some Sena actors Are great and Noble men but it is not because they Are senators. The same applies to other government officials. Too curiously when government of i finals move into or move Back into private business they Only too often bring with them some of the characteristics of every bureaucracy one of them is Empire building which in simple language Means attempting to create a realm within the organization that will be sufficiently Large and effective to make any Job however secondary seem to be the whole works in government this seems to of a acceptable in private Enterprise it clogs the works. Too in private business it is the balance Sheet that counts not medals degrees honors. In government rank is important when rank becomes oppressive in private business initiative and inventiveness disappear a Man said Quot i did this great deed with my own Little Pinky but what about the balance Sheet i recall years ago being told by a he manufacturer of powdered Offee How his product was temporarily ruined by an expert a be Mist making an enormous Sav no in his process but All the a Offee tasted bitter and the Good vill of the Brand name was dam it pc it pm had it succeeded the expert could have said Quot what a great Nan am i a unfortunately it was a Flop but i am sure that the expert is still an expert. Business requires a practicality i which government institutions prefer not to have although general James m. Gavin in his remark Able Book War and peace in tile space indicates that this Lack of practicality in government is very damaging copyright 1958. Kina features Syndicate inc. J vol. 80, no. 194 it.
