And while I imdon may be perfectly sincere in the devotion which lib expresses to major parts of the New Deal program, nothing ja moie certain than that,'if elected, he will be surrounded and to a largo cx- "tc-nl dominated by men whose viewpoint is different.

Propaganda Antipole It begins to look as 'if the country is in for the biggest piopaganda bur- rage since the World War. Never have the combined forces of radio, picas, OUT OUR WAY pamphlet, and jnucmlo gotten off to a better start than in the current presidential campaign. It, therefore, behooves the voter, says Dr. Clyde K. Miller of Columbia University, to look into a few of the tricks of the propagandist, lest he he- conic helplessly entangled in a mesh of contentions. The best iv.'iy lo deal with propaganda, says the professor, is to subject it to searching criticism and analysis. Ask yourself, "Who holds the opinion, who titters it, find why?" If the opinion stands up under this examination, yon may depend upon it as being pretty solid, for the critical process always strips propaganda of prejudice and emotion.
