WEDNESDAY, MAT 17, in You've HearJ All This Before? You're Right-Political Talk Has Same Familiar Ring By JAMES SJAHI.OW WASHINGTON, May 17. OT--H you have a slight feeling that you've heard It before, you're right. Listening to politicians repeating themselves Is one of the prices 'Ou pay for democracy. m.YTWWVTU ?! fAKK.l When President Truman set out <n his cross-country speaking tour, le wanted to drum up voters for Us Democrats running for Con- Eress. fno one expected him to say 1 things about the Republicans running for Congress. .He didn't disappoint, anyone. The picture he painted was all whites and blacks: he boomed the Democrats, blasted the Republicans. Of coure, the element of surprise and newness was lacking in this. Mr. Truman had done this before. So had all Democratic politicians before him. The element of surprise and newness was also lacking in what Senator Taft, Ohio Republican, had to *ay last night in reply to Mr. Truman. Tatt Dlci Same Thine No one expected Senator Taft to do otherwise. He's running for reelection himself, besides being one of the leaders of the Republicans. Ele has also done the tame thing before many times, speaking in black and whites. fn fact, for years now, it seems, every .time Mr. Truman has pot- sholted the Republicans, Senator Taft has promptly pot-shotted the Democrats, just to make things even. AH this gets accepted, as It always has been, as a legitimate part of American politics, although the voters know, being human beings, that life Is not just blacks and whites but has various shadings. Nevertheless, these political tac- tcis Jjiake it a little tougher for the leal voters who just want possible government and want to pick the best men to run it. This Is a wistful thought but it would be helpful if somehow politicians could be persuaded to sit down in public some time and admit shortcomings and virtues on both sides. But It's spring again. And about this time every two years—when Congressmen are running for reelection—we have to listen to the same routine, more or less. It's always been like that. But the Truman trip and the Taft tattoo on the Democ'rats' hides are- 1 n't the end of it. This Is Just the •tart for this year. Weather, Oratoy Warms More Is coming. As the weather warms, so will the oratory, particularly when the Congressmen back home to get In some plugs for themselves. So you may Just as well settle back for what's coming. There' I be rarity of it. ._.' it bore you? Then, this Is tlose up here for 1950 and scoo ' a good time to ask yourself i I question: If you don't like what's happening, and will happen, why don't you take an active part In politics »nd try to change it? And it you did jump in and hop up on the stump to get votes and [ beat the other gny, would you in the •nd do It differently? Or. would you fall in line and hi no time at all be speaking In blacks and whiles, telling how good you are and what a tramp the opposition is? The man who didnt' follow that line, would be a rare bird. And there have been very few rare birds In American politics.
