Jokes on Congress Belittle Democntcy What with a imtiomil political convention, a heavily bnllyhoocd prize light, and divers oilier weighty jnnl- Icrs chasing one another across 'the i'l'cml pages, the country hus more or less forgotten about Congress during the hist 10 days. Congress vecessctl when the Republicans convened, leaving a polful of half-cooked legislation to .simmer on the back of the stove, and, shortly afterward, took up the work anew in the pious hope of an early adjournment. II had a lax bill to pass, and a lloek of other bills to pass, reject, or ignore, and then it was scheduled to adjourn and let its members mend their political fences back home. Us adjournment will call forth the usual round of comments. This work Congress did will bt solemnly reviewed, its failures will be pointed out, its achievements jotted down for posterity; and underneath all this comment there will run a slnmjre, illogical undercurrent of derision and'hostility. Kor it has become the fashion in this land (o make fun of Congress. The congressman has become ;i sloek liiruro for jokesters. -The dullest radio or luncheon club spoiikcr can draw u laugh by implying that ,<ill coujfrcso- men arc dopes. Tliiv cartoon is), or editorial writer whu has 'nolliing elso tu say can always fall back on the thesis thai-.the member of Congress is a peanut politician without vision, brains, or civic'morality. . - '••' We have liml, heaven "knows, 'some odd specimens in our Congress, ;uul Congress has at times done some odd things. Hut it is about time Ilial we realized two tilings: !<'irsl, that these popular jibes just aren't true, and, second,Unit to keep on giving voice to I hem j.s (o piny with lire. The ordinary' congressman is a pretty faithful reflection of his constituents, lie is conscientious and hardworking and he does his best according to his lights. In the long run he gives us jusl about Hip. kind of government we ask for. Beheld, now, what wo do when \vc turn him into a figure of fun. We announce, whether w c intend to or not, thai representative government amply does not and cannot work. Wn •strengthen the hand of every woiild- • be dictator in the laiid. Wo help to undermine, the popular faith in democratic institutions, and to make it just a little easier for the man who wants to destroy them. We ought to know enough by now of modern European history to understand what frightful filings can happen when a ?ia(ion loses confidence in its form of government. And wo ought to he smart enough to understand that, when we join the all- congrcsamcn-are-saps chorus, we bring that dreadful day a little nearer in our own country. If the individual congressman proves a blatherskite and a faker, by all means blast him out of there ami put in a better man. But don't, if you value Ihc republic, go around saying that all congressmen are like that, H isn't true, and it is dangerous to make people think that it is. —Bruce Cation. THgyiLKE; (AUK.)' .'COURIER' .NEWS Slreumtined l''reighl Inauguration, of streamlined ivi.V senger trains it> proving an ell'cctive impetus to recovery for the railroads. The new "trains arc making money where deficits'existed before. Speed and moderni/alion have triumphed. The same cannot be said for the railroad freight service, however, according to Joseph B. Eastman, federal coordinator of transportation. In a recent exhaustive study of this branch, Kastnian-found Hint u certain group of freight cars covered an average of 876 miles in I'M hours. Only 23 hours were spent on.''the road. The remaining time was spent in terminals. Hence Eastman urges in effect the streamlining of freight services—more mobility, in the terminals and greater speed en route. If.the railroads don't care to' provide these things, the truckers will be glad to handle the business.
