FRIDAY, JULY 21, 1939 Here Are Few Matters Thai Should Not Be Lost Sight Of BY WII.US THORNTON NEA Sen-ice Staff Writer The Third Term question, as always. Is generating more he.ll than light. As a sort of political hot potato, It is; passed rapidly from !iari<i to lifind without much chance to study |t. There are many misunderstandings about this "tradition," and whether one regards It as a precedent will) virtually the I'orce of aw, on as. a' wobbly superstition depends largely on the circumstance. Washington, Jefferson, Jackson, Grant, Theodore Roosevelt, and Coolidge were all urged to run for a third term, and Woodrow Wilson, according to recent' revelations by Senator Carter Glass wanted to do so. Theodore Roosevelt is the only one who ever got so far as being on the ballot for a third term, am) this was not a third consecutive term, the Tafl regime -having intervened. NO LEGAL Will Roosevelt Make The Plunge jLYTHEyiLLB, '(ARK.y COURIER NEWS In the first place, it is not universally understood that this is not a constitutional question. r *ie Constitution sets no limit on the number of terms, a third, a fourth, a 20ih being equally permissible so tar as (he Constitution is con• cerned. This Issue was debated at some length as the constitutional convention, and the decision to place ho restriction on re-election was a deliberate one. Hamilton argued powerfully in the Federalist against any restriction on re-cleetlpn. But the third term tradition is usually .ascribed to the "unwritten constitution," beginning with Washington's refusal to 1 'run for a third term. This is shaky ground. Anyone who will trouble to read (he famous Farewell Address will see that Washington was almost apologetic about his determination to relinquish the office in which he had been so unhappy, seeming almost to beg the electorate to let him off, on the ground that everything was going so smoothly that he \vns no ; longer needed. The first real statement of th third ', term' objection on gener grounds is that of Jefterson, an It is 'biv''; JeflCTsori-' as 'tlieVphllo . sophical father imii^Tepubli'c-tha I. the "traditionalists" must rely. • I said, refusingvtoward- the "end L his'second term' reconsideration Jo a third. "This office, nominally fi years/, will in fact become for lift olid" history'shows: liow .easily tha degenerates .inheritance.' ,{.'Jefferson . desperately feared tl esUifalis!|i'neiit of a monarchy in tl United' States, and wrote to \Vasi- ing ton ;frbm France during tl convention; urging safeguard .against .continuation 'in office the president. -Though Jefferson too,'was anxious to leave the care of.the presidency, it is fair to sa that-his objections to a third ten were .; based on' genuinely philo soph'icar grounds nnd on the fea or. monarchy. GRANT WANTED A'TRIPLE • -A constitutional amendment ( put. this:Jeffersonian principal" Int tlie fundamental law was repeated ly proposed during the 20 years un til the time of Jackson, who advo cated a single term and no re election. There was some agitation for Jackson to run a third time but he was old and tired, and ha< Van Btiren ready to carry on hi policies. Not until Grant did i again become a serious Issue. Grant was, of course, a. militarj man, and the cry of "Cacsarism followed immediately on his sec otid election. He clearly wanted n third term, but was forced into - weasling statement that "I wouk not accept a renomination if ten dered, unless it should come under such circumstances as to make i nn imperative duty—circumstances not likely to occur." He didn't evei get the nomination In 1877 whei he returned to politics after t four-year interval. McKinley rejected third term talk, and Theodore Roosevelt, on being elected lo .a second term promised not to accept anothe nomination. But In 1912 he ran or the Progressive ticket. The "third term' issue was not clear because it would have been only his second elective tetm, since his first was lithe uncompleted part of McKin ^ ley's. In any case it would not have been the third consecutive term And the principal practical objection lo the third term j s Ulat lllc candidate is able to use the in- trenched party machinery which Is not the case if another administration has intervene*! COOMDGE DIDN'T "CHOOSE TO RUN" People incline to forget the strength of the movement for a third term for Calvin Coolidge. There was widespread support for this proposal, again complicated by the fact that Coolidge had not had two full tenns, having served the remainder of Harding's and one of his own. But Coolidge said, "I do not choose to run"—a phrase' not yet entirely clarified—and the ••-'•- held. Jackson President Roosevelt •drceswrs warn Franklin I). RnnwveH ot Hie CooUdre who are opposed to the potential third-termer anyway. More than 100 resolutions have been introduced in Congress in Eflorts to solidify the third term tradition into constitutional law, but-up to now it remains what it always lias been—cither an inconsequential political superstition or n bulwark of free government according to your point of view ind who's running.

There is no known cure for it as yet. The disease is particularly preva- ent among World War veterans, although ether persons also are victims.

If the farmer can be sold the idea that tlie union woulti harm livestock prices by unduly Increasing the processor's costs, the packers will get an ally of incalculable value. On the other hand, if the union can get him to accept Ihe idea thnt farmer and packing house worker have mutual interests where the packer is concerned, the packers will lose an ally and the union will gain one. Which Is where the 1940 political-angle really begins to develop. There is strong feeling in the C. I. O. that this administration ought to lend a helping hand In this matter. Both President Roosevelt and Secretary of Agriculture Wallace, it is felt, could furnish invaluable propaganda by letting It be known |hat their sympathies were with the workers ralh- ... ^ijt,, uijj- JUJii i|| in partituiar, the. effect' nouW b uiiforltinalc both fbr the C : o and for an administration ' whici was pouiilnrly regarded as n clos friend of the O.

Oscar Alexander Boasts Fine Crop of Apples Oscar Alexander, well known Half Moon fanner, has raised some apples this year which nre unusually fine. Many of them measure llVC. niches in circumference and nil taste delicious. Mr. Alexander has seven trees of the Stork's Delicious variety which are 15 years old. He also has pears, plums, cherries, strawberries. Young berries and black berries in his home orchard which covers one-hair nn acre. He also las 40 pecan trees which will bear In two more years. His apple crop is light this year because he didn't know thnt late freeze was coming and didn't smudge but lie had an unusually heavy crop last year. This is the third year Mr Alexander Iras farmed his 88 acres at Half Moon. Of this acreage he ins 15 acres in permanent pasture. Night Blind?
