WEDNESDAY, JUNE 1, 1949 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THREE! THE NATION TODAY Eisler Now a Living Memorial To West's Priceless Treasure Where Individual Has Freedom By James Marioir WASHINGTON, June 1. TO—Communist Gerhart Eisler Is a living memorial to one of the most priceless treasures of the West: the rights of an Individual in a democratic society, even when he'd like to destroy that society. Twice convicted in the United States, but free on ball, pending f ipeal, lie fled the U. S., was sealed in England, was brought before an igllsh Judge, was freed on a legal technicality, and is now safe In Communist Eastern Euroi>e. +His case was Judged entirely on legal grounds—on what his rights were under the law—and not on political grounds, although a congressional committee had called him America's No. 1 Communist Robot Translator Being Devised By Technicians LOS ANGELES, June 1. (/P) — The U. S. Bureau of standards Is building an electric brain that will translate foreign languages—some- foe ol the Eoviel rejrlme, had com- I tiling that has stumped college and he had. a notorious history of Intrigue. Suppose the situation had been reversed and Communist Eisler \va.s in Russia, was considered the No, 1 milted a crime, fled, and \ caught in another Communist country behind the Iron Curtain. Contrast Oet Emphasis There isn't much doubt he would have been whisked back to Russia, probably without a court hearing at all, and for a reason that illustrates perfectly the difference in the attitude of the East and West toward an individual: Under Communism, an individual exists for the state, not the 5tnte for the individual. It's Just the other way around in a democracy like America's or England's. In Russia when government policy—which means the desires of the ruling group—conflicts with what a particular law calls the "rights" of an individual, the government policy comes first. Under communism a man looked \^-pon as an enemy of the ruling ^ronp, which wants to slay in pow- 1 er, gets short consideration. It's different in the West. There every individual has. certain guaranteed rights and he can appeal to the courts for the protection of those rights if they're in- lerferred with. In this country Eisler was convicted of contempt of Congress and of falsifying a passport- He was sentenced to prison but got oui on bail while he appealed to a higher court. Then he skipped to England Individual Rights Come First In 1870 England and this country signed an agreement to return to one another a person who hac been convicted of perjury in either country. But tile English Judge decide( that Elsler's falsification of a doc ument here couldn't be considered perjury under the meaning of tin treaty, because it didn't cover faV sification of documents. So he re fused to send Eisler back here. Knowing perfectly well that Eis ler once let loose again would he free to continue to. try to destroy Western Democratic' governmen the.judge considered first and on! wha t nis rights were under the " as nn individual. The irony of the whole case, o .^course, Is this: v9 Eisler won his freedom under th laws of the Western democracie which he despises and would de stroy and— If they were destroyed, and re placed by Communism, an Eislt who was an enemy of that new regime and committed a crime here and fled to England, would be bounced back here in a hurry. rf M.K TW Mciwwif ft rito'tt <t«rt 200, 000 H< r*or, tt by •**•' it *M MM M *«•« at,.

Highway Official Critizes Care Given U.S. Roads WASHINGTON — We know how to design and produce good highways but we're careless about keeping them up, says Public Roads Commissioner Thomas H. McDonald. The excessively heavy truck, he adds, is the major maintenance problem. "We are overloading our highways In their traffic volume capacity and in their structural capacity," McDonald said In an interview. "The only way to proper use of the .highways is to limit axle and wheel loads. "Axle loads in excess of t8,000 pounds should not be authorized,' he said, "and any revision of laws governing gross weight of vehicles should relate that weight to the number and spacing of axles." The 18,000 axle-load limit generally has the support of state highway, motor' vehicle manufacturer and user or- ;anlzations, MacDona.Ild said, and it has been written into the laws of majority of the states. But he said that movements are under way in many states to ease the restrictions. "Today the volume of truck traffic is nearly three times as great as It was in 1930 and even more Is the proportion of trucks that carry heavy loads," MacDonald continued. The result, he said, has been a gradual increase in damage to pavements. MacDonald said "truck operators insist that highway damage is technical matter, that engineers must find a remedy, but that "this is true only to the extent that the design of roads fails to provide for loading wuhin the legal limits."

Race Betting St/7/ Illegal In Missouri JEFFERSON Or.TY, Mo., Jun« I. </i'l— Betting on the ponies will continue to be illegal In Missouri. The House of Representative* killed yesterday a measure to regulate horse race meetings and legalize ftt-the-track betting. Debate on the hot measure wa« brief. Defeat of the bill was unanimous after Its author requested it because, he said, "It's no earthly good" now. Hep. Anthony Plckrell (D) at Jackson County lost Interest In his bill after the House overwhelmingly approved an amendment whacking out betting at the tracks, Forty-five Republicans and 25 majority Democrats voted for the drastic amendment. Two Republicans joined 29 Democrats In voting against the amendment. Earlier, the House heard assertions that gamblers are pouring across the Mississippi River frorr Illinois and If the pending bill wa passed they "would find a paradise a readymade foundation on whlc (o build their gambling empires." That was the feeling of Rep Richard Webster <R) of Jaspc County. He said he didn't believe the aliened benefits from passage nf tl.e bill would outweigh the bad effects. "If we have reached the point that ive must turn to the world's second greatest vice to provide us with revenue, the time has come for us to take stock and figure out how we can get along with a little less revenue," he said.
