It' Time We Extended Franchise to Servicemen Meeting in Little Rock recently, Arkansas' Amvets spawned an idea which other organizations would do well to .encourage. The Amvets want to lower the voting age in Arkansas to include 18-year-olds. The Amvets, who have no active post in Blytheville, will begin circulation of pelitions to plnce an amendment to lower the voting age on the ballot in the November general election. \Ve would like to see it on the ballot, too. . For nearly 10 years, the United States has made 18 and 13-year-olds subject to the military draft. In view of the present world .situation, it looks as if high school graduates will he faced with serving time in the armed forces indefinitely. Why these people should fie denied the right to participate in the democratic elections of the country they are chosen to defend is one of the inequities arising from antique legislation which naturally could not foresee the part people tinder 21 years of age would play in the nation's fight for survival. Surely it is time we extended the franchise to this group of people and impressed them with the rewards and obligations of full citizenship. Presidential Ambitions Killed Stassen Politically Harold F^. Stacson's story is due of the saddest case histories on the recent American political scene. It is a supreme example of what, can happen to i man when he is bitten by presidential ambitions. At 31. Stassen was an aggressive governor of Minnesota with a bright future. In his mid-forties he is a forlorn figure with no political prospects at all. And that because he allowed his higher yearnings to consume him. In the light of his record at Minnesota, his service in the Navy, anil his performance as a delegate at the United Nations charter conference in San Francisco, Stassen deserved a chance at the presidency. Friends built him lip for I hat opportunity by proposing him in ini-1 while he was still in the. Pacific. Nobody took his candidacy too seriously that time nor was it intended they should. Four years later Stassen mnda his real hid. He had begun by avowing his candidacy two years before nominating time. He pounded Imrk and forth across the country in vigorous pursuit of convention support. His early fortune was not bad. He won primaries in Wisconsin and Nebras- ka, then captured Pennsylvania on » write-in. Thereafter, however, he seemed to overrcnch himself. He claimed 14 or 15 delegates In contest against Senator Taft in his native Ohio but won only nine. Next came his Oregon debacle. Governor Dewey of New York lac- ' crated Stassen in a radio debate over a bill designed to control Communists in America. Pewey's Oregon stumping outpaced St.'tssen's. Dewey won that primary and the 1948 boom for Stassen ended forthwith. Ohio was actually th'e start of his downfall hut it was that unsuccessful radio debate in Oregon which hurt him in public eyes. For there it was revealed that Slassen did not really understand the subject he was discussing. He appeared concerned only with the impact he mis making on the voters. His entire 1952 campaign has been characterized by this same feature. Slji.ssen has endeavored to be all things to all men. He has promised a great deal. He has in one breath sounded like a stalking horse for General Eisenhower' and in the next sounded like his own man. lie has sought to make himself a rallying point for discontent of all sorts, however vague and ill-defined. In this latter respect ho is (he Henry Wallace of 1952. The effort was doomed from tlie start. With the possible exception of Illinois, where ns a candidate on the ballot he managed to out-poll by 10,000 votes the write-in gained by Kis- cnhower, Stassen has made a dismal showing in the nation's primaries. Any man capable of facing realities would have pulled out weeks ago. Slas- sen stands repudiated by the voters. His convention strength will be but microscopic. If he imagines he is somehow earning a cabinet post in some other Republican's administration, he is probably grossly mistaken. His opponents have lost respect for him. Politically Stassen is a punch-drunk fighter with n cauliflower ear. It is time for him to stop acting as if he were Joe Louis in his prime. Views of Others Superstate? The United Nations hn.*i bfi?n attacked on many (?roia)rt.i. It hns been railed an ineffective debating society, R. mnmdtng box lor Communist propaganda, a front for "AngJo-American imperialism," & one-world rfrffftjtirTn a cold-war world.
