GATEWAY TO KNOWLEDGE The Repyblican party in 1952 and had a remq/kable candidate, He could and wcU "A bundle Of newspapers ihoufcf ,b.ti depos- put focvyard c<s'a national figure, almost entire^ Ited each day at .every high scrfbol In America." 'y *»• a* previous party. Identification and in— ••*•'-•- • • ! • • • ternal strife. He had great appeal, therefore, for who had never committed them- voting one party ticket o'r the 6ther, The strategy in 1932, therefore, was to appeal as never before to citizens who usually stay at home on election day. The GOP advised iiea eacn gay ai .every nign scqoui in «mori*a. •' . it \j T,h,at Is the opinion .expressed b.y| a vjce prejlcjent 's rhal s . frlfe .; " of Syracuse University. We qss.ume there is no f "P?A .q.H^eijs confjict of interest here, thdt he owns no stock selv « °Y **"* In «?ny newspaper. In a nutshell, the Idea is that such a move and a 15-minute allowed time for reading the ... newspaper in class, "would allow the student »s party workers that, the stay-at-homes ou> <••••>• ...... number the independents by about 45 millions to become acquainted ( with those materials with o which he will spend his life." A truer statement was neyer made. We do not expect that the use of TV, radio, and capsule education as supplied by various and sun.aYy so'calle^ "ne^^s magazines" or "plcjuw niqgazines" will cease. We cart only hope that,in the vital process of keeping abreast of the times the-most important part — the,newspaper — is not overlooked. It still supplies the basic information, and considerable interpretation as well, of the world in which we live. The person who reads a newspaper or two ' every day,may not become a member of Phi Beta Kappa, or even enter the presidential picture, but it would be hard to find a subject on current events about which he hqd no knowledge to 3 or 4 millions.'Eisenhower brought out the stay-at-homes vote both in 1952 and 1956, des< pite the fact that Adlai Stevenson himself polled more votes each year than did Truman in 1948. Stevenson had a "normal" Democratic majority; but the stay-at-home vote -that didn't stay at home in 1952 arid 1956 won for the Republicans. Now the Republican jSarty is faced with a task of overcoming the bask Democratic majority in'the country. It can only dp this by getting votes from (a) Democrats (b) Independents, or (c) Stay-At-Homesl The' problem: can they do it? Nixon is no Eisenhower in the public eye; Henry Cabot Lodge is a name but not any particularly strong or widely known figure. Kennedy and Johnsog may also fail to at all. One of the most unfortunate aspects of qualify as having the appeal of an Eisenhower, tf)e tenure of office of President Eisenhower is but they are as well known qi Nixon, as exper- Jbat in recent- years he fias.been reading only ienced in government, as well or* better educated, one Sunday'paper a week - the daily news sum- and extremely .intelligent: vyfthout having the maries he allowed his staff to boil down into one "typewritten page.

It could'have! been prevented with ,q little,more cqutioif. The" cry of "inclejSeridence" has .a special appeal to our own nation, and some others who fly the: banner of democracy. Belgium, while having a nominal monarch,'is still'a democracy in the sense that Great Britain is also a democracy. When the nations of Africa began crying for "independence", Belgium was caught in. a flood that it could not resist/and gave the Congo independence as of July 1. Within 48 hours the country was in chaos. , Now United Nations troops are spreading out over this vast area in Africa's interior in an effort tp prevent tribal wars, mutiny among Congolese troops, and further rape and assaults against what few white people remain in the Congo. • The Congo simply was not ready, or anywhere near ready, for independence. It yvill ,not be for years. Now someone else will have to maintain a semblance of order and endeavor tp steer this new republic along a path that may eventually lead to stability. In the Republic of Congo there were 7,600 Christian missionaries, 1200 of them American. Most have now left; jprne never expect to return, and it seems evident that the ruling powers do not want them back. The work of many a lifetime has be.en destroyed — "the hatred for everyone white is too deep", commented grje / -I Utty Mmu* -•Ol.IAKIWATT7^0WT-SVITYCHKt ' """ ," ( O* l>ov*iM» SoWy Sfn*%l Washington * *, # mghlights A Weekly Report .from f/ic"7VahWj Ca Pernpcratjci votes and ,a.

Here he gives .some impressions and views oi the , the Republican Convention! It. will | be . some time bef on the political 'strategists figure ou exactly .what ? happened in Lo Angeles and Chicago. Each con vention produced at least on big .surprise. , No one expectet Sen. Lyndon Johnson pf Texa to accept the Democratic Vice Presidential nomination. But h didj In Chicago,? no one took Gov Nelson Rockefeller seriously whei he said 1 flatly he <was not inter ested in "running for the vice presidency. ,Th,e 'experts wer< convinced Rockefeller was jus. playing the game according to the'rules, .denying his candidacy but doing everything a candidate is supposed to do.' But Kockefeller was serious and Vice President Nixon ha,d to look elsewhere for a running mate. The presidential campaign is, just starting to shape up but the betting already is that the November election may be one of the closest in history. Some : interesting happenings arc certain to take place when Congress reconvenes this montH. The eyes of the world will focijs pi) the U.S. t Senate to: see how the candidates conduct themselves in their new roles. Since it is customary to address the Vice President when he is presiding over the Senate as "Mr. President," will Democratic Presidential Nominee John F. Kennedy go out of his way not tc address his rival in such a fashion? Another odd =:cuation involves Sen. Johnson who is the Democratic leader in the Senate. Johnson will still be running the show and this means Kennedy will have to take orders from his chief. So this puts Johnson in an uncomfortable position since he wi)l l}ave to take orders frorn Kennedy if Kennedy is elected President and Johnson is elected Vice President, Apct' Nixon will be having his troubles, too. The Democrats control Congress and they will be doing everything they can to hurt Republican chances at the polls while trying to improve their own position. At any rate, the sparks are certain to fly on Capitol Hill. As we wajched President Eisenhower receive the cheers of more than a million persons when he arrived in Chicqgo and the thunderous ovation later at Convention Hall 'we wondered if there vyas not a little bit of sadness mashed by hjs broad smile. This was likely to be the last time he WOU.W get such a reception as President sincu his term is approaching tftp (,> nf j. ty c a ] so eot the feeling that Mr- Eisenhower, cjespite all tha prestige ».nd ppwcr which his office car- rips, will be ccjnteiU to step uut so they cannot get too' close to the President. But in Chicago kit was different. Soine spectators even succeeded in itsaching -oul and shaking the President's hand, something the SS agents never permit. Mr. Eisenhower had some bad moments from the "confetti throwers. Bits of paper hit h'is eyes and'sometimes covered his head and face. At one ppint alopg the parade j route • a bystander threw a handful of "rice in thg President's fape. It becarne necessary at times to speed up. the President's car *to,' move 'through the thrpngs. There is little doubt but that the, Secret Service will prepare a .report .cajljng fpr greater, protective' measures in future presidential • parades.
