Mount Pleasant News (Newspaper) - September 20, 1958, Mount Pleasant, Iowa
The it. Pleasant news these Days by George e. Sokolsky he s in again because messes. Harriman and Rockefeller Are multimillionaire arid each is a candidate for governor of new York state the cry is again raised about the common Man. One correspondent writes me a a. I refer to the fact that neither or. Harriman or or. Rockefeller have never done a hard Day s work in their life so what would they know of the problems concerning the common Man and woman who must always work and struggle to make a living a i am quite sure that both Averell Harriman and Nelson Rockefeller have done As much As and certainly More constructive work than the common Man and common woman to whom my correspondent refers. By common. I presume that he does not mean a vulgar person but rather the unskilled labourer or casual labourer who has had neither the education Iii an intellectual discipline nor the training in a technical skill to make him uncommon. For instance. Or. Jonas Saik undoubtedly does As much work in any 24 hours As a ditch Digger. As a matter of fact the ditch Digger s work can be done As efficiently or More efficiently by a machine whereas no machine could possibly develop the ingenuity of a or. Salk whose researches have saved millions of lives the difference Between the common and the uncommon Man is that one does work which can be done by a machine whereas the other the uncommon Man does work that no machine can do. He is graced with an uncommon mind blessed with an uncommon Talent there never have been two Shakespeare or two newtons or two einsteins. Too when my correspondent uses such phrases As the Quot common Many or Quot the working class a he is trifling with terms that do not apply. Of course there Are some men who do not work in tins country but they Are very few and neither governor Harriman nor candidate Rockefeller belongs to that class. Both have inherited great wealth but both have applied themselves to the Public service. Is the Public service in this country to be limited to men like Orval Faubus the governor of Arkansas who started As a poor farm boy attended Commonwealth College a communist run institution. And is now challenging tile authority of the Federal government Over an Issue that must have been alien to his Youthful thinking when he led students in a Radical convention or shall we elect Jimmy Hoffa As president of tile United states because he once worked As a labourer what criteria of knowledge education experience character do we set up for our Public men whether elected or appointed according to my correspondent the Public Man ought to be a Quot common Man Quot by which lie might mean perhaps someone like mayor Hylan of new York or mayor Thompson of chit ago or perhaps a Quot working class Quot Man like Dave Beck or Jimmy Hoffa of the teamsters Union or perhaps he would prefer Walter remit her.
