The End of An Era - Tho resignation of J. Mell Rrooks as secretary of Mississippi C-nmty ITftir Association and the dmlh of John B. Walker terminates a civic ora in Blythcville. , Several limes prior to : 1934 John B. Walker refused very' attractive financial offers for the area comprising Walker Park, steadfastly refusing to sell the site to any person, retaining it : .for a public park. In 1934 he sold the park grounds to the city for considerably less than he could have sold it to individuals, but which individuals would have sub-divided for residential purposes. . For nearly a hundred years tlvi lands constituting Walker Park had belonged to the family of John B. Walker; he loved every beautiful tree in the grove and he wanted it to remain 416" a restful retreat and a link with " the past when this entire community was a forest of trees of that type. From the date of the acquisition of the park and fairgrounds until two weeks ago J. Mell Brooks served us secretary of the fair association. His services were without compensation and at a considerable loss of time and money to him. Probably more than any other individual and largely due to his * efforts the county fair, the park and the fairgrounds are no longer speculative ventures and civic liabijities but are outstanding successes, a credit to the community. ; } The late Clarence Wilson, who served as president of the fair association from its inception iinti! his death, also gave freely of his time in an effort to build, an outstanding fair and to make the Walker Park project self supporting. * Clarence Wilson, John B. Walker, J. Mell Brooks . . . Walker .Park and the fairgrounds will be their monument. the top, where it counts. It is sure to spread to the rank and file, and with it goes confusion. By trying to dictate CIO policy -and by aligning themselves; with it, the Communists can muddle the minds of union members. If the Communists support CIO objectives, then can communism be so bad? If the government were to outlaw the Communists, wouldn't it also outlaw us, who agree with them on matters of union labor policy? These are questions wlik'h the comrade's are probably delighted to plant in as many' minds as possible. Doubt and confusion prepare the ground where the seeds of subversion aru sown. Then the Communists, tt'roiijih organization, discipline, /(Mil sunl an ability to shout louder than their opponents, have a chance of taking over. It .should be added that pro-Communist Michael Quill, head of the Transport Workers' Union, had a fuw confusing words to .say at the OK) meeting. He said it was "no incident that the American Veterans' Committee are puting out Henry Wallace's speech by the thousands," tluu "the Buffalo teachers wuut on strike" or that "the telephone workers have the longest picket lines ever form'! 1." Veterans, attacks on An-erican foreign policy, strikes — are they ;ill part of the same picture. Are they forerunners of the revolution? Or did Mr. Quill simply try to make them appear so for confusion's sake? Mr. Murray soothingly told the stormy meeting that divided opinions are one reason for the CIO's vitality." Check." Check. But wlfen divided opinions involve divided allegi-.i'i -c between two countries and two systems of government, a gi'ave element of danger arises to trouble Iho CIO's future. Confuse and Conquer The nuisance value of the small Communist cell in organized labor was demonstrated again at the protest rally of CIO officials in Washington against labor bills now Wforo' Congress.^ The meeting also highlighted the confusion which the issue of communism has created in high CIO circles. After CIO President Murray and other officers blasted the proposed legislation and prophesied the dawn of American facism, Irving Potash arose. Mr. Potash is vice president of the Fur Workers' Union. • ; "I speak to you as a Communist," he said. He didn't get much fnrthtr than that, according to newspaper accounts of the meeting. Emil Uieve, the Textile Workers' Union president, protested. So did A. R. Ha.rdesty, a Texas representative of the UAW. .; But Richard Leonard, UAW vice- president, objected to Mr. Hardeaty's statemen^ that "We should say that we will not align ourselves with the Communist Party in any shape or form. We should say we do nH seek such support. We don't know what was in Mr. Potash's mind. But the pattern ;of communistic technique is so familiar by now that we feel safe in making tliis guess: Mr.'Potash injected communism into the discussion because it is Communist Party policy to promote dissension while preaching unity. , Dissension can be promoted best at \ I VIEWS OF OTHERS Isolationism in Reverse Seven years ago Charles A. LlnclbiM'K loured the United States us the passionate udvocan ot Isolationism. Today lie lilts hi:; voice on bc- hnlf of what was then callccl'inlcrvciitlonism ami la now known variously us InternaUmnOism, imperialism, or enlightened national .sell-interest. Docs this moan ,h:it he has reversed his position? Apparently not Mr. Lindbergh's published statement regards World War II as evidently a vast mistake 5 : He recalls wistfully his former point ot view., and notes that American failure to adopt it. has brought tnc evils he foresaw. A mere military victory hns been won, liut Western clvilinitlou lias been all init lost: We have destroyed N<v/l Germany only to find that in doing so we have streni;t» Communist Russia-^ The inference- is that a victorious Axis In the world today would he no threat to Western civilization, since Axis victory would have been the end result of" his policy. It is nonsense at this laic date to revert as he does to the thesis that Germany and Russia, could Have been "left" to destroy each other conveniently. Mr. Lindbergh cites modern rocket-atomic warfare as \he reason why isolationism Is no longer possible, liut Ihc deciding factor mat. seems to have converted him to intervention in foreign affairs, even to the extent of using military force if necessary, is that tlv "threat" Is now ftiLssia and not Ciennany. We are reminded that in 1041 he declared that, lie would a hundred times rather sec his country ally it.selt even witli Germany than with th^ liur- rors of Soviet Russia. While appreciating the transparent sincerity of Mr. Lindbergh, we feel that his record m face of Naziism docs not recommend Hun as a political pilot. —CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOH.
