Vishinsky's Definition Andrei Vishinsky, famous Russian prosecutor ajid Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, threw a shaft of light through what might be .called the iron '.curlaiii of'Russian thought when, in a speech before a group of French 'jurists, he defined the Russian government as a "democratic dictatorship." "Dictatorship of the proletariat" is ;u: old, familiar Marxist-Leninist figure of speech—a little obscure to the uninitiated, perhaps, but generally taken to mean "dictatorship by the proletariat." However, Mr. Vishinsky's definition-.was simewhat different. A dictatorship, he explained, can be democratic "when it acts in the interest of the people." Well, that de- pCnrfe""uj>on ' what definition of democracy'-one picks. American diction- aries-^ffer-a choice. '•QiieVdefinition is: "Government in whrc'Ti^'tTie" siiprehie power is retained by the people and exercised cither directly; : or indirectly through a system of representation." Another is: "Belief in or practice of social equality; absence of snobbery." By the first definition, no dictatorship could be democratic. By the sec-J ond, a dictatorship might qualify, thojigh this definition in English ap- plir-s to social rather than govcrn- mcjtital democracy. But perhaps the Russians have evolved an entirely different interpretation of the Greek words "demos," mciining the' people, and "kratein," meaning ttf'rule. It may be that they hate hvmlted the Greek "demokratia" and gone lack to the root words, reading them to mean "rule of the people" rather than "rule by the people." k At any rate, let us go along with Mr; Vishinsky's definition of democracy admit that a dictatorship is democratic when it acts in the interests of the people. Ttiat's ai: easy admission to moke. By the same definition and un- de£ the same circumstances, the government of the Russian c/ars cotdd have been democratic. It might be more precise, however to'say that a dictatorship can only be democratic when it acts in the in- terests of the people, and that when it doesn't it becomes fascism or na'/.ism. Thiil is so clearly implied in Mr. Visliinsky's .statement that it seems impossible that he eonltl object to the logk'iil conclusion. Therefore, by Russian admission, there is no virtue in the institution of dictatorship, but only in the men at the head of it. This may be true to some extent of all forms of government. But dictatorship gives the jwople no chance to crilioi/.o or change. Obviously, the heads of the Russian dictatorship (as we may call it now without any fear of giving offense) consider themselves virtuous. Obviously, they believe that they can indoctrinate, and choose so carefully that, evcni though dictators are mortal, their successors will bo men of .similar virliire. : Hut can (lie Russians guarantee the validity of wisdom and virtue in a dictatorship where only the leaders and not the pt'oi/lc are permitted to pass judgment on these qualities? Can IN; Russians jwiiil to any government in history which has boon beaded by a succession of wise and virtuous men? Can they lull how a voiceless people, saddled with a stupid or wicked dictator, can remedy the situation except through blootl and vio!6ncc? Anyway, we're grateful to Mr. Vish- insky for his definition of the Russian form of government, even though it doubtless leaves most of us more incapable Ihiin ever of admiring it.

No Lockouts By FKSKINK JOHNSON NEA Staff Correspondent HOLLYWOOD, June 1. <NEA> — Jatic Russell and her chiinns are so far out in front, Ihese days Iliiil everyone seems to have fort'oUen Jack Bculcl. He's the rcllow (remember?) who plays the title role in "The Outlaw," and hits Ills ears shot oil by WiiHcr Huston. Jack is 28, a Dallas, Texas, boy. who Just got out ot Hie Navy after three years' service. He's still under contract to Howard Hughes, who discovered him seven years ago, when lie came to Hollywood from Da!la:, (or a movie arecr. Hughes signed him to sn xcluslvc contract, then kcjit him, and "The .Outlaw," on the shelf im)) this, year. An unknown when he Ictt Holywood for the Navy, Jack finds i odd to tic stopped now by aulo- ;raph-huntcrs. "Anil especially '.)?"lie who want to look at tny car*.

" THK "IMl'OSSIBI.E" IS F.ABY Jack added another fabulous story alwnit the fabulous Howard Hnyhcs. One day the "Outlaw" company wjos shooting location scenes In the mountains near Flagstaff, Ari- yxinfl. A hundred people had gone down there on a chartered train, which was standing by to bring them home. Hughes suddenly decided he wanted the entire company buck in Hollywood the next morning, although the schedule called for an afternoon return. *.

IJilnfly, It ar[;ucs for more unity and more united action among the several labor movements no.v i (lourlshlng with such fine free en- | lerprlse. .! John L.

It is claimed that it rred- 1 "] ident Truman approves the bill incorporating this idea of Sen. Hurry P. Byrd's, it will work to the disadvantage of the garment workers and other unions that now have sole cuntrol over their ,we.'l'.ucj funds.

According lo Communist reasoning, this enabled President Truman to drive a wnii"4e between the union (orcOs and so break the strike on his own term';. Unity of the seven maritime 111.- tons at- their recent San I-'niucisco conference is praised by the G'otn- niuuLsl pr.ess. Six ot these unions are C. 1. O., one being independent, Their pact is that all will go on strike June 15 if any one or more Of the seven don't get what Mv;y want. Further, .they are asking maritime and dock workers all over the world to support Ihcir strike by refusing to work U. S. ships in foreign ports. This is considered a commendable .show of unity. To the rival A. F. of L. Maritime and Longshoremen's unions. ho\v- evcr, this is a mere "political su'ik, against U. S. foreign policy." A. !• of L. leaders William Green.
