Our Daily Bread SHced Thin by The Editor ——Alex, H. Washburn— rr~ Poll, o Hobby That Turned Commercial ond Then Failed That which ought to have been aphe but couldn't be done by law was finally, accomplished in the natural course of events last Tuesday when the votes of the American people destroyed the carefully- built-up myth that the result of *ah election could be told before ever the electorate went to the polls. To put it bluntly?. the business of holding pre-election polls is as . dead as last week's campaign banner. I don't say it is dead forever —but dead for a long, long time anyway. You would have thought the presidential poll business would have folded when the Literary Digest miscalled an election result Some people thought the Digest died shortly thereafter from mortification. Actually the Digest was gone, financially, a, year or two earlier, having lost its advertising to the newcomer, Time magazine. The Digest held on in the hope that one more successful presidential poll might put it back on its feet. But it didn't— the final poll ended in disaster; and the Digest owners, affirming their personal honesty, gave out the opinion that even the best of pre- election prediction systems breaks down sooner or later. But rivals of the Digest claimed they had new and more "scientific" systems, and because they happened to be right the year the Digest was wrong the public continued to put considerable faith in the things that Dr. Gallup and Mr. Roper peddled as sober fact. Until Tuesday, that is. On Tuesday we buried the last of them. And I personally am glad! I know of no one thing so destructive of impartial examination and debate on campaign issues as the pre-election poll. How can one think and write wholly honestly in the face of definite and daily-repeated claims that an election has already been decided? The pre-election poll started off years ago as a newspaper and magazine hobby — purely amateur. It drifted into commercialism — and pretty soon it was dominating the political horizon like an ominous cloud, destroying faith in the old-time American system of campaign and debate, letting the chips fall where they may. I do want to say one thing: In my 25 years as a newspaper man I have never bought or published any commercial pre-election poll. The wire services referred to them, of course, for any time a custom becomes nation-wide it also becomes news. But I never subscribed to a commercial poll — and it goes without saying that those ttf my contemporaries who did pay put money for such. things are sharing my prejudice today. The original local straw vote is still good. I used it years ago in Hope when The Star conducted such a test of public opinion on the question of whether our town should have Sunday motion picture shows. Following the result of that straw vote, we went ahead and got Sunday picture shows, on the same basis that people arc permitted to play golf and baseball, and go driving, on Sunday. But it was a local poll — and amateur, strictly. But as for national politics the poll is dead— and America is well off because of it. This is our country, therefore our homes and our destiny, which we are supposed to debate honestly and work hard for — not a pre-fixed gambling machine, as the commercial polls tried to make it. * * * Henry's 'Gideon Army' Was Progressively Lulled Asleep By JAMES THRASHER During the closing weeks of the 1948 presidential campaign, a horrid political fate overtook Henry A. Wallace. His supporters grew less numerous and less enthusiastic. People stopped throwing things at him. Worse still, a lot of them even stopped talking about him. The major candidates for the presidency ignored his presence in the race almost completely. The press, which had given front-page space to his speeches : and to pictures of his Southern martydom, took to running the news of his campaign inside the paper. The polls indicated that his show was slipping, but nobody gave his declining percentage much notice, Everywhere the dismal signs were apparent: the American people were bored to tears by Henry Wallace. In a campaign marked generally by a lack of public interest, the disinterest in Mr. Wallace grew to monumental proportions. The trouble seemed to be that people quickly learned, if not everything about Mr. Wallace, at least everything he chose or was permitted to reveal about himself. It was apparent early in the game that he had been taken over by the Communists and had become something very like a ventriloquist's dummy on their knees. H was shocking, but the shock wore oft. His past history of contradictions and evasions was hunted up, ! made public, and easily digested. Continiie'd on page two WtATHER Arkansas: Clotidy this J noon, Umijjhl, Friday. Cottier Friday.

S. history. At 70, Alben W. Barkley will be the oldest of the nation's vice- presidents, while 04-year-old Harry S. Truman is the third oldest mail elected chief executive — right behind William Henry Harrison, 68, and James Buchanan, 05. The Democratic triumph also marks the first time two former Senate colleagues teamed up to cop the White Hoiiie prize, Back in 1888 the Republicans took the honors with a congressional combine when Senator Benjamin Harrison was elected president with Rep. l.evi iUtntuii as hit, runaiiij> mate. Russia Turns Down U. S. Atom Control Plan Paris, Nov. 4— (fP) — The United Nations assembly rejected today Russia's proposal for atomic control. The vote was 40 to 0. Only the Soviet bloc supported the Russian proposal, which called for a treaty banning the atom bomb and a separate treaty setting up controls. The treaties would have become effective simultaneously. Russia called the Western plan for control of atomic energy fantastic and unreal. Andrei Y. Vishinsky, leading the Soviet bloc's bitter closing fight, told the United Nations General Assembly the atomic bomb can be answered with atomic bombs and weapons of other kinds. He asserted the United States docs not want international atomic control and demanded that the delegates adopt the Soviet plan. Hector M. Neil of Britain pleaded with Vishinsky not to reject the Western plan merely because • it has "novel" ideas on state sovereignty. But Vishinsky repeated the Russian arguments that the majority proposal would invade the soverign rights of states. Gen. A. G. L. McNaughton of Canada attacked the Russian proposal as "oversimplified." Vishinsky brought President Truman into the atomic debate again. He quoted the American' president as saying .recently in Milwaukee that the United States must continue to develop atomic weapons until the "correct" form of international control is in effect Gesturing with his arms as he spoke, Vishinsky told the assembly that this apparently meant the Americans would continue developing atom bombs until the Western control plan is adopted. Such an attitude expressed by Mr. Truman means, Vishinsky said, that "you are in a vicious circle of contradiction." Tne Russian demanded that the delegates approve the Soviet plan for atomic control. He shouted that there is no basis for agreement now between the Western and Russian plans. He charged that the United Slates does not want atomic control and that the Baruch plan is a 'cunning maneuver" designed to wreck any control. The Western plan, approved by a majority of the-assembly's political committee, is based on proposals made June 14, 1946, by Bernard M. Baruch, then the U. S. delegate on the U. N. Atomic Energy Commission. Vishinsky spoke nearly 90 minutes. As he left the rostrum he received a burst of applause from the Slav bloc. Mrs. Vijayalakshmi Pandit, chief Indian delegate and ambassador to Moscow, told the delegates after Vishinsky spoke that India could not agree to international control of atomic materials while oil and similar materials remained in private hands. Mrs. Pandit proposed an amendment to the Western proposal. The majority of the 58 nations in "committee has favored approving the Western plan as drawn up by the majority of the 11-nation atomic commission. Her amendment proposed that the assembly "approve in substance" the majority report. India has fought consistently in this assembly to tone down the differences between the East and West on Ihe atomic problem. . Vishinsky fought against a majority provision that the atomic commission resume its work where it was suspended last spring when the East-West impasse showed no signs of breaking. Mrs. Pandit asked that the assembly amend the majority proposal with instruction to the atomic commission to keep on working for an agreement. Paul Ramadier. French minister of defense, told the assembly his delegation would vote for the majority plan.

J. | A'-vil Hickman. received from i Washington a SKI investment in ; Scouting from the Southwest Gas ! & Electric Company which oper- j ftos only in the Washington area ; here. i Campaigns will be conducted in i Blevms. Washington, Fulton. Srping Hill, and Patmos. The Saratoga campaign will be handled by County. In all of those area's Scout Trooos are active. Of course, much of the expense in Scouting in these smaller towns is borne bv the public spirited citizens of Hope.

The B-29 was one of 29 bombers from MacDill that flew to England three and a half months ago for maneuvers over Europe and in cooperation with the Royal Air Force Twelve already have returned to MacDill. - . -.• MacDill said another bomber of the same flight was forced down in Bermuda early today by. engine trouble. There was no damage to the plane, or injury to its-crew.- ' The bomber that crashed had halted briefly a Lagenn field on its homeward flight. It took off • in darkness and a light rain but crashed into the sea 500 yards off the Azores shore a minute later., MacDill officers said they had no information as to the cause, of the accident but an investigating board of-flying officers already had started an inquiry on the scene/ HopeMayor Supports Scout Drive Mayor Lyle Brown of Hope lists reasons why he is throwing his whole-hearted support to the BOy Scout Drive in Hempstead county: "I am supporting the Boy Scouts because it not only furnishes won-, derful opportunities to the youth of pur community —it is a sound (investment. If every boy in America could be trained in scouting then we would see delinquency gradually disappear. Our community would be a more prosperous and happier place in which to live. Scouting stays with a boy throughout his adult life, it is not a form of fleeting entertainment—scouting builds men, the type of men who guide the destinies of communities, cities, states and nations. It is therefore an enterprise to which all of us should contribute." Girl Scouts Council Plans Award Court The Community Girl Scout Council met yesterday at Hope City Hall in the council room with Miss Mabel Ethridge, executive, presiding. In a short business session a treasury report was given by Mrs. Corbin Foster and a House 'Committee was named to aid in caring for the "Little House" at Fail- park. The committee: Mrs. B, L. Rettig, Mrs. Leo Robins and Mrs. K. G. Hamilton. Reports on preparations for the Court of Award to bo held at the Methodist Church at 7:30 tonight were made by the committees. The group also discussed probability of organizing a new scout troop in Hope.
