The higher national Income argument therefore /alls of Us', own weight 1 If U be raised as a 'reason for .continuing the Democratic party in office," DEWEY DOES IT, TOO No one party or np due candidate, nowever, has any monopoly on political dishonesty. For years, the critics of President Roosevelt have writhed at what they considered the political dishonesty ol ma'ny of the New Deal objectives, the Four Free Boms, the Atlantic Charter, the present emphasis upon the President's perfectly constitutional position as Commander In Chlci v the disavowc! of there being pollficu significance to so many of tits activities. And 'evidence' is piling uj. that. Gov. Tliomns E.. Dewey is just as much of an old master at this sort of. thing as-anybody else. When Ihc governor busied Into the Dumbarton Oafcs postwar security planning by attacking rumor- 'cd proposals as' domination o: imller natloiis by the Big -Foil! owers, he was being entirely po- llcnlly honest. At the time, 'how- vcr, : lie gave no indication he hew— If .he did .know—that Sccrc-- • v ;of State "Cordclli Hull had In- Istcd agreement nmong the "Big Four was first requisite to later eo- peratton with smaller countries. lull,.;If he liad-wnnted lo, might lave shown the governor up as-bc- ng not tod well jnfornVed on what. ie was trying to' talk about. To ave the conference from being Iriiggcd -into politics, Hull vcfralne<l rom this, and Instead lnyi(eil.De)V- cy |o send his "foreign "policy'n<f- vlser Foster Dulles to get a flll-ln on whut went on. TJewey in -effect thus became a partner In postwar jlaniiiug and he can claim part credit for any Dumbarton accom- iiiii'hmenls. This Is smart politic? jut not what you would call hiin- :ired per cent crass your heart <ui<l hope to die honest. DON'T IJET TlIKSf *OOl YOU You cnn reduce lo similar absurdities the charges by Dewey that Roosevelt did nothing to prcpnic the American people (or war, antt that War Mobilization Director James F. Byrnes's. plans for demo- bilization. are six months too late. Memory seems to whisper with a fhout' thai Tour years ago the Republicans 'were .lambasting this fellow Hcosevelt for being a war monger, for wanting to bultd 60,000 airplanes a y'oar, for wanting lo drag this country Into ofiother unholy European war. And if, six months ago, you had Dewey or the Republicans for 'their blueprint of demobilization, alt you would have tlrtvwn Is ''a -vacant 'stare. There Isn't, anything morally wrong with this 'kind of :pollllcnl dishonesty. Roosevelt has been charged with 'dlslilhg out .the same line-for years. The Intelligent voter, however,' won't let either of these Mg boys fool him for n 'minute. Yesterday's Results SOUTHERN LEAGIIK '(Playoff) ' Nashville 0, Memphis 3.
