Peace and Politics ^ The discussion of American mem- Ijership m the United Nations security f ganization has been showing symp- ms of becoming holly political, despite jj&th major p«u ties' official policy of Beeping it non-partisnn Pcrhnps these Symptoms ^eie induced by the recent campaign, and will subside now that it is over. But they revealed some odd assumptions and conclusions which probably still exist, and which could frustrate our effoits> towaid world peace. £ The most prevalent of these seems to be' that membciship in the United Nations would give the President of the JJnited Stales sole powei to declare war. *-Jt is doubtful that those who made the charge looked vciy far into the future, • But their assumption obviously would Spply to any President of any party, good or bad, now or later. ^ The assumption ignoies the proposed fl-member council and seems to consider that this ''dedalation of war" I'ould be a Piesident's private affair, ^nd, with all its talk about "rushing bur troops into battle," it also ignores tjie possibility that the United Nations might first tiy to solve a menace to world peace by mfeans short of war. 2 But the recommendations of the Dumbarton Oaks conferences specifically] suggest that the security council, \ Saving I determined that a threat to peace exists, "should be empowered to Determine what diplomatic, economic, , jjr other measuies not involving the ^se of armed foice" should be used to |ring about a settlement. Jj The Dumbarton Oaks .suggestions ;; ^ £ie not final This has been repeatedly' Stressed Theie will be discussions and Decisions among piospective member natiojis before the United Nations come ' intojbeing. In this country that means discussion and final decision by the Senate. And that decision will surely ^ include in its conditions of our membership a stipulation of how our mem- 'ber of the seciuily council shall be appointed, and what poweis he shall have, t Under the two-thuds vole, it is extremely unlikely that a President could foice any Senate to give him a , fiee hand in appointing and advising pui security council member. The Sen?te guaids its liealj'-iiitifying [lower too jealously for that. Thc greatest likcli- jjood of' such a fiee hand would seem to be in a situation where a President JJiight r dictate the council member's course tlnough a highly cooperative •Senate - Incidentally, Senator Tom Connally £f Texas piovuled an interesting f do {. - : note recently to this fnghlening sul> Oect of a Piesident's "war-making" •powers. Dm ing a Scnale debate the scholarly Texan recited some of the instances wheie a Piesident has sent our Droops "01 ships to foreign soil without feclaialion of wai 01 thc advice and Jonsent of the Senate. £ The list is too long to repeat here, JLYTHEVILLE-(ARK.) COURIER NEWS but it includes'more than 50 "incidents" covering a period of 113 years. These forces were dispatched for reasons of security, protection or retaliation by almost all of our President, weak and strong, from Jumes Monroe to Calvin Coolidge. These were precipitate fictions, but history docs not show that the presidents were called despots or dictators. Greece's Contribution Through four years of German occupation Greece suffered torture, hunger, cold and disease. With liberation a hitler fight between opposing polilical factions has come to Ihc surface, and ruinous inflation has been added to Ihe country's oilier miseries. Jl would seem that thc Greeks could bo foigiven if, absorbed in their own tragic problems, they paid scant attention to anything more than the task of trying to restore .their own health, stability and prosperity.' Ycl their government has announced that the Grcelt navy will-be at the Allies' disposal for use in the Far Eastern war. The Greek navy is neither large nor powerful, but its offer cannot be dismissed as a gesture. Or, if it is a gesture, it is one of the most generous that could be made. The Greek government might have decided that the war with Japan .was none of its concern. But it has decided that freedom anywhere is its'concern. In doing so it has acted in the best tradition of Greece's noble history. - Reproduction to Ihlj eelmnn ol edJtofhb •Uw newsmpen'«OM Bti necwwty nuu endommtnt Mb u Mknowledfraeot of to- Unrt to tb* Hbjeeti Our Election Laws Should Have A Goipg-Over Arkansas elections need better incchniilcni equipment and they ^should be conducted with •stricter regard for the regulations Ilxed by law. Most people may be surprised to lenrn that Arkansas laws require the.; providing ol voting booths, five feet,,apart and furnished \yith 'a table,,shell or .desk,.hi which 'ballojsi may be marked. Ballot boxes art required to be "good and efficient" and provided with lock nnd key. The Senate investigation of the last Democrnllc state primary has shown ballots crammed in shoe boxes, tobacco boxes, candy boxes, household appliance boxes—some wooden, some metnl, some cardboard. And voters actually, irmrk their ballots in an open room with a lot or people probably milling around, mid instead of n tr.ble, desk or shelf, [he voter may lay his ballot down on whatever place Is available. We should not tolerate a situation In which, as Assistant Attorney General Cleveland Holland soys, "election ofticials have a choice ot refusing to hold an election, thereby violating thc statutes, or of conducting the election in the usual manner mid violating a dozen laws. If present requirements are Impractical they should be modified. Laws should not be kept on the statute books Hint can't be feasibly compiled with. But proper ballot boxes can be provided and loose nnd Irregular practices can be stopped. The whole mailer should receive the attention of the nest legislature nnd every provision of the present, election laws should be carefully weighed. Tills important work could be greatly expedited if a commission or n committee of thc legislature were named now to study our election laws and practices In order that a report and recommendation:, might be ready when the legislature meets. —ARKANSAS GAZETTE. * 80 THEY SAY Adult crime Is at a minimum today .simply because those who want jobs are able to obtain them.—Lewis E.
