In this century i t - I s g i \ e n to Americans, as never before to any people, to light the way toward realization of the ages-old h u m a n lonutng. . . Progress is slow. Tht set backs are- many and painful and the way Is strewn with peril. Because the United Slates has made itself the greatest, the frc?;.t. the most prosperous nation the world has ever know, it has had thrust, upon it a world leadership it never actively sought. feccausc'il is so great, so free, so powerful, so prosperous, it often finds itself misundersUxjd and abused. It is difficult for A m e r i c a n s to understand t h a t misunderstanding. They have given much and /rccly-- much in inspiration, in leadership, in patient and selfless help. something of a surprise. There was no hint of it a l ' Ihc Geneva for- eigp ministers' meeting in October, when the Western Big Three tried' without success lo gel Ihi Russians to agree on a many-sided program of travel and informa- lion exchange. The facl · that they have now decided in favor ot publication of Ihc magazines is regarded by State" Depl. officials as evidence l h a l there- well may be other agreements of this kind which they are willing to make over a pc- viod of time. : They believe' lhat while the Soviets are fully determined to wage the Cold War full scale against the West,.particularly in Asia and the Middle- East, the Russians do nol wanl to return fully lo the bitter name eiiilinB and increasing isolation of" Ihc.

Herm*ns*n As ont. reads the Grecley Tribune ol December 13. 1055, especially- the article concerning the reorganization of slate government, he wonders why the committee on reorganization was set up in the first place, for it seemingl:- made no profound recommendation, if thcje made in the paper were any sample of those made en tolo. One must question the sincerity with which the committee imisl have approached their job for their recommendations seem to evince the lack of any real interest'in the effective management of governmental affairs. Of course, the litie of the committee could he a misnomer, anil its function one other worthwhile. than reorganization. Some clever wit once had this lo £ay about a committee: ''. . . a group uf unfit, appointed by the un willing lo do the unnecessary." This definition apparently fits the com miHce on Ihe reorganization o state government, for they reconi mend only Ihose things that seem Intent on preserving what they -;c out- lo imprjve. -In other words, ·they reject whal would be « step in governmental reorganization -that of the short ballot. They further abuse Ihe people by sajing m essence, "The voters aren't intelligent enough to decide whether Ihe short ballot h'as mer»t or nol," Onu almost wonders if they weren't perhaps a f r a i d to Jo so out of fear that the," were in a sense killing t h e - s o - c a l l e d goose that laid Ihe golden egg or perhapj losing Iht? right to perpetuate themselves. Why then this tear uf "submitting Ihe short ballot idea to Ihe people? If it wasn't foai thai prompted short ballot rejection by the committee, what.was U? For the shorj ballot woul§ do much lo make- an effective and efficient -slate government; . Look at a tew of. Us obvious merits, For one thing,, the election procedure 1 costs would be reduced. Se :ond. . it . would ,c*;lainly allow the voter to make ah iiilelli- ge:it choice of the nominee -for office -- a task he can hardly do now when he; is confronted with such a multiplicity of names. It would certainly be easy to assess responsibility -and to deal- with it wisely and quickly -- either individually or party-wise. Last, them would be a j uniformity o) policy. One can almost see through the ommittec. It must has'e been argcly made up of politicians and not people .interested .in the im- trovement of government. For they certainly were inconsistent with hem-selves. Un one stand, they rtc- ommcnd a four-year term and on the other rule out the one thing hat would m a k e a four-year plan 1MSOHAPPY..:1UT...

OtTYHUtfAH PDft-PEOPLE TMAKE MISTAKES M O D E S T M A I D E N S Naturally, however, one could hardly cxpecl Uvsm to act differently, for allowing the people -to vote on policy-making candidatco only would destroy quite a few non- csscnlial patronage jobs. . - ' Governor Johnson's presumed magnatninity nrjsl also be viewed wilh a rather jaundiced eye since he was apparently unwilling to take any stand one way or another. This is hardly in keeping- with-his former stature ,as ? rcp.esentative'of the people; rather it has cheapened it somewhat. One wonders, 'for example, if he is in favor uf his.o^n program. "In summary, one .ca i sa^ this about governmental reorganiza lion: If it is'worlh doing, it is worth serious study and effort and; should be Hone in* such a m a n n e r . a s to make Colorado a model of efficien government, If that premise "is wrong, then the committee on re organization was "unnecessary.'
