PAGE TWO BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER «, 19-19 THf NATION TODAY— 'Statism Sounds Like Nice World And Dictionary Agrees But Many Skeptical of Its Real Meaning WASHINGTON, Sept. 7. (fl>j—They've got me over a barrel and nil contused. 1 mean President Truman, General Eisenhower, former Secretary of Slate James F. Byrnes, and Senators Bridges, Pepper and Caiiehart. They've been throwing around the word "statism" like It was a bad word that we won't want any part of. But I looked It up In the dic-+ — tlonary — and there "statism" sounds like a nice word about something that's always been here. Byrnes, who once was one of the most powerful Democrats close to Mr. Truman, made a speech June 13. He warned that "we are going down the road to statism." And he called for a cut in federal power and spending. This tickled the Republicans. They took it as an attack on Mr. Truman's "Pair Deal" program. They beat the Democrats on tlie head with it. "That," said Senator Bridges, New Hampshire Republican. In a speech about the Byrnes speech, "is quite a statement . . . This man has taken off the blinders. He ->s the trend in the country." Senator Capehart. Indiana Republican, didn't seem sure what Byrnes had In mind. Capcliart suggested that when Byrnes men'.:» ed "statism" he might have been warning against sliding into "socialism or communism." "Slatism" Doesn't Soun Good But Senator Pepper, peppery Florida Democrat, blasted Democrat Byrnes tor giving the Republicans ammunition. Pepper said he and his fellow Democrats deny their program "involves the awful, odious trend which somcon might call statism.** This a d e me pretty gloomy. particularly since "slat ism" didn't sound good and f hadn't looked it up. Then yesterday In St. Louis General Eisenhower, w h o had been mentioned for the presidency before the last election but excused htm- .self, teed off on "statism" in a Labor Day speech. He said: "The stright path to America's future lies down the middle of the ro»d between the unfettered pow- thought up by a lot of "paid agitators, promoters and publicity experts who make a fat living frlKht- enlng the people In the higher income groups." So all of them—Mr.Truman. General Eisenhower, Byrnes, and Senator Bildces. Pepper and Capchart— seemed to dislike "statism." That's when 1 ran for (he dictionary — the latest utianrirtsed Webster's Dictionary. It said "stnl- ism" means: "Belief in a gocernmcnt, as in a republic, in contrast with l>clief In communism or a Soviet government." Now yon can see why I'm confused. All these big men talking against statism and. from the dictionary, il seems that "statism" is a belief in the republican form of government we've always had. Poli'.icbns would leave guys like me a little more time for the funny papers if tliey'd give me the dictionary definition when they start heaving words around. I wonder if they looked up ".stat- ism"? Harrison High P.T.A. to Beautify School's Campus The Parent Teacher Association of the Harrison High School announced today that beautificatioii of the school grounds at the new high school would be one or the association's main projects this year. In this connection a vacation drive was made contacting the PTA membership, and a 55 fee from each member is to be assessed this year to finance the purchase of shrubs and other equipment for the school grounds. Susie Cummins, president, said tint each member should submit 15 before October 1. She estimated that the association should enlist more than last year's 150 members on the basis of the enrollment, which last year was about SCO students. The fees are to be submitted to the home rooms. »**""*:: .JHBWMUii. 1 »"«".s*i NEW TARGET PLANE SHARPENS NAVY EYES—Navy Runners will be trained with a new pilotless mm jet Martin KDM-1 shooting by nl speeds near tliot of sound.

Almost at the same time Mr. Truman was making a Labor Dny xpe«ch in Pittsburgh. Defending his "Pair Deal" program, he said many of his propsals already had progressed 1 n the face o f such "trumped up slogans" as '"statism" and "collectivism.
