Mount Pleasant News (Newspaper) - October 6, 1958, Mount Pleasant, Iowa
The it. Pleasant news these Days by George e. Sokolsky representatives v. Eggheads the americans for democratic action Ada it have latched themselves on to the democratic party although a few of them have in-1 filtrate the Republican party. They have not organized a Po-1 Lotical party of their own for that would have disclosed their weak-1 Ness. Within the major parties however their marginal strength j adds to the accumulation of a i majority vote. On that basis they have been demanding increasing recognition from each party. In the recent contest for the democratic nomination in new York state they demanded that the democrats nominate one of their men Thomas k Finletter in Connecticut they would have accepted either member of the firm of Benton and Bowles. In both states they tailed j to Force the democratic party to accept their candidates. Now along conies professor ar-1 thur Schlesiger or. Of Harvard University Chiel theoretician for the Ada., who complains bitterly that the democratic party has distributed Quot Liberal and Independent voters Quot by nominating democrats in particular Schlesiger picks out Thomas j Dodd of Connecticut. Says Schlesinger Quot i refer to the Choice of Thomas j Dodd Over Chester bowies and William Benton for the democratic senatorial nomination in Connecticut and similar choices in new York and Pennsylvania a the professor further says that this is due to a pattern which he describes is a revolt of the Low level professional within the party organization against the new Deal and Post new Deal leadership of the democratic party. If it continues it will transform the character of the party and destroy its prospects Quot in a word w hat shocks professor Schlesiger is that the democrats wish to keep and run their own party. He admits that republicans have often said about the democrats that outsiders socialists communists doctrinaire liberals opportunists and such have dominated the democratic party and that apparently in the year 1958 the democrats have grown tired of the Tail wagging the dog and have taken Over. I do not know what extraordinary qualities messes. Benton and Bowles possess that make them individually or collectively More suitable than other men to serve in the United states Senate but i do know that Tom Dodd is a compel Lent and experienced lawyer that he has served in Congress that he is knowledgeable concerning the working of our government and that he has a Good record of antagonism to communism Over the years. Apparently professor Schlesinger although he teaches american history at Harvard is not familiar i with the operations of american political parties which Are quite dependent for their operational1 strength upon the club houses. I Schlesinger says Quot i suggest that this revolt began on Hie lower Levels. I doubt whether Carmine Desapio the party Boss in new York or John Bailey the state chairman in Connecticut would have incited these it would be a weak politician indeed who would wait until he had an open revolt on his hands before he listened to the rumblings of the local clubs. He could find himself on the outside looking in. I even Carmine Desapio who has proved ins strength in the new j York state democratic organization would not dare run the risk j of a revolt against his judgment i and his judgment is definitely against the Extension of a d a. In a ii enee in the democratic party j such leaders As Desapio Are Usu j ally very responsive to Public pm a Ion within the rank and file of their party. And More and More democrats have been growing increasingly annoyed at the socialistic interlopers who Are using their party As a transmission Belt to get themselves into Public office. It is of no advantage to working campaigning democrats to support men who despise the democratic party As for instance Schlesinger who Speaks of Quot the murky lower Depths of the democratic party in the those Quot murky lower Depths Quot get tile vote out. Ii took time for the politicians to get on to a d a. Tactics of in filtration. But once their techniques were discovered and made Clear the professional adherents in both parties turned on this Small Cabal of astute operators and began to throw them out. The democrats tins year managed to get red of vol. 80, no. 235 it.
