First Duly: Vole As the shouting and the tumult near their height, and the election day ncars, the duty of the American becomes clearer. That is the duty to vote. How seriously do Americans take '.hat duty? Europe's eastern section is in turmoil. Rioting and revolt in Poland and Hungary have caused concern to the Reds both in those countries and! in Moscow. These disturbances were created by people who have been deprived of their rights— their right to govern themselves, to select their i own rulers, to determine their own domestic and foreign policies. Behind this destruction of liberty is the wiping out, first of all, of an essential freedom. That is the right to vote. j elections, their Red masters doubtless long since Had the Hungarians and the Poles had free would have been turned out. The Communist terror never would have started. ! The people without the right to vote are the! The blockade nevertheless continued, notwithstanding protests Irom the United Nations. Border raids have been continuous despite the armistice.

Drew Pearson's Merry-Go-Round Israeli Just 'Fustest' WASHINGTON — The reason for the Israeli attack on Egypt was quite simple. It was based on the assumption that Col.

When you come to Ihe edge of the Iron Curtain around the Soviet, you are halted by a mass of barbed wire. Along the Canadian-American boundary are white stone pillars. Israel had the alternative of! But between Israel and the as the hills of Moab. More recently it is in this general area that the Egyptians have cut off Israeli ships from coming up to Elath at the head of the Red July 26, 1956, Israel was further endangered because even shipments in other vessels destined for Israel could be kept from htr if Egypt decided at any moment to refuse passage of such goods through the Suez Canal. But the biggest danger to Israel has been in the refusal of Egypt to recognize the little republic and in continuously threatening her existence. So Israeli forces find it necessary today to safeguard their interests. The British and French demand now that both Israel and Egypt withdraw their forces from the canal and that the waterway be "temporarily" occupied by the British and French forces. The Israeli government is willing. But Egypt is not. Nasser's position in violating the 188S treaty, which guaranteed the canal against seizure by any power, is still something that must be reviewed by some competent tirbunal — either the United Nations or a commission set up by that organization. Meanwhile, President Eisenhower expressed on Tuesday his hope that force would not be used by the British or French governments. Both were persuaded once before to let the situation drift, but now show signs of. impatience. So, all in all, it's more than a Header's Vorum They Depend on You Editor, the Telegraph: Before most students pass the eighth grade they must know their state, and federal governments practically backward and forward.

We would know how rich we were, not in terms of money, but in our inheritance, the God-given right to vote for whom we please. S. Since I am only 15 years old and can't vote now.

Editor, the Telegraph: "Downright pagan" is the term used by Edgar S. Brown Jr., to describe many modern funerals. In the May 30 Lutheran magazine, sponsored by the United Lutheran Church, Brown rebukes the practice of eulogizing the dead, the use of sentimental music and often un-Christian, the He Wants To Hear 2 Sides Editor, the Telegraph: Thanks much for your editorial comment in the Oct. 27 issue of the Telegraph relating to the council-manager form Of government for the city of Alton. As T was in bed ill at the time of the meeting held at; Alton High, I did miss the opportunity Io attend, and I certainly had wanted to be there. I feel, however, that if you will publish the pro's and cons on this matter it will be a great public service. Because thousands of cities have gone to this council-manager form doesn't necessarily mean that is the best for Alton. I don't think we should jump at a chance to make a change just because someone tells us we should. Rather, if we are informed on an unbiased basis what it's all about, more intelligent opinions can be formed.
