Mount Pleasant News (Newspaper) - May 8, 1958, Mount Pleasant, Iowa
The it. Pleasant news Cloudy these Days by George e. Sokolsky by George f. Sokolsky Bill Knowland i Felon byrdly the most Swiec Sicular Campaign this year will be the nomination and election of Senate. William i knowhow As governor of California senator Knowland is the Leader of the Republican party in the United state Senate. He could have been renominated and re elected to the Senate. He Deli Ber lately declined the sure thing and chose to risk himself for the governorship of his state a tim i him Are already gathering mighty forces particularly the professional labor Barons who earn their living out of the work of other men they object to Knowland because he has supported the american right to work doctrine which is As fundamental As free speech namely that no Man and no group of men May enter into a conspiracy to prevent other human beings from earning a living the i right to work doctrine is Basic in j american life going Back to the1 earliest colonial Days before alien influences subordinated american thinking to one form or another of marxian enslavement cd the individual to tile prevailing forces in society. Too it has been suggested that senator Knowland would have been a smarter politician had he not advocated the right to Woi k doctrine until after he had been elected governor. Then the labor Barons might not have poured millions of dollars in California to effectuate his defeat. He treats such politician s proposals with contempt As Senate Robert a. Taft did a Man must be honest with himself and if the Price of being elected is to be a liar Knowland rejects the whole tiling. His opposition has already developed a Normal a. Campaign which is to produce no arguments against Knowland s character or fitness but to repeat endlessly the unprovable statement that a cannot be elected. This no one can know until after an election actually has taken place for the will of the people is not expressed in polls or in estimates but in the voting Booth where secrecy and truth prevail. O a 9 Bill Knowland is obstinate in another regard. He is still a United states senator and the Republican Leader of the Senate and he takes his responsibilities seriously. Therefore lie refuses to neglect his duties in the Senate while he is running for office in California. He flies to California for weekend campaigning but Back to Washington As Long As Congress is in session. This is an old fashioned sense of responsibility but it is very refreshing in an Era when the word duly seems to have lost All meaning vol. No no. Too it.

Charles o. Porter Dot ore., that Only half the explosions would be revealed or that regular announcements of the 30 tests planned would help the russians. Porter violated charged that a the Peoples the policy i right to however his charming wife Helen is on the circuit campaigning for her husband which is always a Graceful thing to do. I am told that Helen Knowland is a Brilliant speaker and that senator know land s daughters also appear at meetings. Thus a family has been mobilized for civic duty and responsibility. The Republican party needs tilt kind of leadership that senator Knowland has Given it. It is responsible leadership which some men Call conservative but which m fact is a revolt against opportunism against the betrayal of tile american tradition of personal Freedom and Freedom of Opportunity by those who advocate statism in any Guise. Senator Knowland was quite Young when senator Robert a Taft selected Knowland As his successor to the leadership. As the years passed it was obvious that Taft s insight into the Man s character was indeed precise. The dec chairman also revealed a that the five member dec is a a unanimous in opposing a ban on nuclear tests except As part of a i package disarmament proposal. He said Russia is seeking to end tests before weapons have been built for anti missile and anti bomber defense. Said that president Eisen Noweli has asked him to continue As the chairman of the dec after his four year term expires june 30, but that he has made no decision on whether to accept the appointment tile appointment would require Senate confirmation.
