Secrecy Unnecessary The announced purpose of the gcnlle- mcn who are forming secret organi/a- tions to "stand watch in legislative halls and vigorously contest every attempt to take, away the rights of the people," and to combat the "enemies of our republic," are certainly above criticism. Their methods are not. Secrecy is needed for wrong doing, never for doing right. When adopted in a good cause it is destructive, cither through the abuses which it makes possible or the distrust which il engenders. Neither Arkansas nor Uic United States of America needs any hidden government working within or attempting to work above the government of the people. Botli need more men with an unselfish interest iu public affairs, willing and unafraid to denounce wrong doing and to light openly for honesty, intelligence and progress. step towards hwtllhier political campaigns. In point uf fad, this country's prosperity depends very little on the administration at Washington. If the present G. 0. P. platform sets a style by recognizing thai fact we shall all be better off. In the future, it may be, wo shall bo able to light out |K>!itk'al campaigns on the fundamental issues instead of let- ling lite "prosperity issue" divert our minds from Ihe real points at slake. SIDE GLANCES By George Clark THE WINDMILL Mr. Blease Is Retired The shite of South Carolina seems to have taken advantage of Uic recent priihiivy 'election to (to not only itself but the rest of the nation a gooil turn. Cole Blease was never exactly an ornament to the U. S. Senate. As « defender of lynching, a scoffer at the constitution and a drinking dry he was often rather hard to put up with. Now South Carolina lias retired him. James F. Byrnes will replace him, and it is hardly stretching things to sny that holh South Carolina and the U. S. Senate will be better off. Eleasu represented the noisy, blatant type ot "statesmanship" that the country can very well do without. The voters of South Carolina are to be congratulated.

The "Prosperity Issue" Dies Political writers have not been slow to point out! that the platform issued for the current campaign by the Republican party makes no mention whatever of the 1928 platform's bland assertion that national prosperity could best be obtained by electing a Republican administration. Every other plank in the 1928 platform is incn- , tioned; that one is quietly left out. It may be that this will prove a long The Civic Shakesneare Society In Chicago reports that to study Shakespeare is to accmlre a liberal education. It will be »cll. therefore, lor those seeking liberal educations to adopt the slogan: "Where (here's a Will, there's a way." Just as we read that n British scientist asks why man ever ceased to be an a|:e, n report comes Iroin Hollywood that n movie actor brings Mill because he hasn't received wages for lak- tng the ntirL of a gorilla In a Him of African lite. When Knute Hcckne, Notre Dame football coach, said recently that he would welcome a coaching Jab at Sing Sing, just to gel away from alumni criticism, he was no doubt aware that many of his men would die for their Alma Muter. BV RODNEY' DUTCHEIt NBA Service Writer WASHINGTON—At least n dozen senators will be leaving Congress when llieir terms expire next March. Most of them me elderly and of Hie typo usually described as conservative or reactionary. Generally tpeaklng, younger and more active if not more progressive men will succcixl them. The liberal, progressive lorccs in pclitlcs have not lost anyone from the Senate as n result of primary defeats or retirement. They stand to Rain somewhat, in strength with Hie elections. None of ihe members of the old farm bloc or of the Republican progressive group has been defeated in his campaign for re nomination and the candidates sup ported by organized labor have us nally been successful. Although the close of the prl niury ;.:iihini still shows no sisn u l a significant progressive revival (n national politics, there is considerable evidence on which an argument might be based tlmt voters have lost somo of the apathy induced uy prosperity and are more inclined to look askance at the administration and regular Republicanism of the brand offered by men now holding office. Six Hcpulilicaiis Lose The Republican senators who have: lost their jobs in the primaries are Charles S. Dcnccn of 1111- ncis and Joseph H. Orur.dy of Penubylvanla. Republican wnators who announced their retirement were Gould of Maine, Haird of New onncr Congressman James F Byrnes, has also put on many shows n public life, not always edifying mes. But he wasn't punished for hat. His constituents doubtless s'ould have stood for his ng stand and his eccentricities, >iit the fact that he was only beaten by a few thousand votes Indicates that the opposition of organ- SSst.t-eimcdi cmhv vbgkq vbgkqb ized labor was really the decisive factor In his defeat. The Phipps candidate for the Republican senatorial nomination was beaten in Colorado, suggesting that Phipps' own withdrawal was slrateslc. But people in the capital found most interesting in Colorado the Democratic nomination of Edward P. Costigan for senator. Cosligan, who had a notable record on Hie tariff commission, is a progressive of parts and would Greatly add 10 the progressive strength on the Democratic side of the Senate floor if lit! were elected. His election, lu fact, would be moro likely Uian anything else to convince the liberals of the country that bigger and better things lay ahead.
