OFFICIAL CITY AND COUNTY NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING R^TES ON REQUEST NOT ENOUGH EXPERIENCE , ' Sheldon 'Mail — It is sometimes easy to ticize^the people of a country such as the Do miniccm Repub|ic for their very evident mercur ial temperament when, it comes to the matter 01 politics! ' , ; 'We'are informed almost daily, in fhe news dispatches, frorp 'such .areas, of the doings 01 . emotional mobs and^the maneuvering of temperamental an,d, self-centered-leaders.-The first • impression df cfll this for a resident of tlie United States is that the problems of ' sUcrf ^ peoples might naturally be,.settled by"free elections, and , it is ( hard| at first glance, to see why such election? are not held and the decision of the voters accepted. - - i * . f ' , , , , A second''consideration ..might disclose at ^easl; one of'the reasons why this is obviously so much more complicated .than it, appears. THat'js the basic one that most of the people of such'countries QS the Dominican Republic actually have little if any background in genuine democracy..^ great many of them wouldn't know how to use, the democratic process if it was offered to them. Our country is proof of the fact that it takes a tremendous" amount-of devotion on the part of sincere people to secure the blessings of democracy in the first place and to hang qn to thepn after,wards. Our country, Weij- sed as it is with a, firnr foundation in this matter, still has not by any mpans completely ''sold" all its inhabitants on ,the, .virtues and demands of democracy '— witness, jFor instance, the compara- ,tive low percentage of citizens whjc> vote:in any election.' ' :•••"" '''"'-•. •; ••• : . The struggle for democracy evidently has something in common with the program of Alcoholic Anonymous, the subject has to have a sincere and determined desire to help himself before anyone else can help him. * ' * , *' ..
