The Democratic Ideal Must Be Maintained prominent. Knglislunen re-.. united to make ;t public protest against llic rising wave of discontent with democratic institutions. All across Europe—from Gcrninny, from Hti;sia, from Italy, from lesser countries—tomes, a stctulily growiiiB chorus of (tension for parliamenUtry government. Dernoerncy, il is said, is a worn out thing, and liberty is an empty word; only by an iron-clad dictatorship can it people hope to meet tli'e problems of the modern world. All this, naturally, is beginning to slir echoes in the British, Isles; tind these Englishmen, therefore 1 , have called on their countrymen to rally iii defense of the democratic ideal itnd\lo reaffirm their conviction of the supreme imnorluncc of human liberty. Something very .similar might be done profitably on this side »f the water. Europe is a long way off, but this attack on the old, Anglo-Saxon concept of freedom is a menacing and contagious thing—chiefly, perhaps, because we have grown so used to the blessings of liberty Uiiit we take them for granted. j •We i>ick up rmv daily paper, 'for instance; knowing that it will give us a full ;vntl impartial story of the news of the day, and that the editor will sptiak his mind freely about current issues. We go to a political meeting perfectly confident that the speaker will say precisely what ho picnics. * * « If we don't like the actions of our mayor, our congressman, our governor, or our president, we wait our chance to vote against him at the next election—and, meanwhile, express ourselves as bitterly as we choose to anyone who will listen. We read such books as we wish to read, attend whatever church we please, educate our children in the way that seems best to us. We don't look on these things as privileges. They are part of our daily life. We hardly cnn conceive of living under circumstances where such things do not exist. Yet we need to remember consluntly that these are the very blessings of democracy which now arc under al- OUT OUR WAY tack. People fought and died .that we might have those privileges, and, did il so effectively that we no longer look on them as privileges, We imbibe freedom with the very air that we breathe, but a price was paid for it, and it is our task to defend it everlastingly. Under fascism, under communism, under any kind of dictatorship, we would la-io it. Press or Press Agent Bankers' representatives continue to iissiiil Hie pending slock market bill. One of their latest complaints is that it menaces the freedom of Hie pres.s by its penalties for (he dissemination of false and misleading information about corporate securities. Od'huml. one might suggest tiiat this provision menaces nut so much the freedom of the press as the freedom of the. press agent. Do you know how the press agent works, when a powerful pool seeks to boost the price of a certain slock beyond its true worth, so that iU members can ttiiloiul at a profit '! lie circulates phony bits of news about il. ilu lets it be known that the company in miusliuu has landed a big . foreign contract, or bought, important patent rights, or entered into a profitable merger arrangement. It all makes the stock sound valuable, the .suckers rush to buy, (he insid- tTs unload— and, when the smoke clears away, the slock price drops to when; it ought to lie, while the insiders congratulate fhe press agent and bunk their profits. TlwlVi the sort of "freedom" this bill endangers. SIDE GLANCES By George Clark - " " / -- - ---^- -• -- —. — _ | ...This.CURIOUS WORLD Bf \.
