Duffs Win May Give Him Reins in the Keystone State ; > We'll have to-wait until November ': to learn, whether Progressive Gov. James \ M. Duff's stunning victory"over Penn- •Bylvania's Old-'Guard Republican boss, • -Joseph Grundy, will be final and complete, If Duff's personal choice for governor, John S. Fine, the new GOP nominee, can capture the statehouse in the fall elections, then Duff will have achieved what few Pennsylvania governors ever attain. lie will have held onto control of the staU organization beyond tlie end of his term. State law bars a governor from seeking re-election. Others have .tried to choose their own successors and thus hang onto power, but few have made it. Defeat for Fine in the fall would open the way to the conservative Grundy forces, to fight back toward renewed power. And Fine's job won't be easy. His Democratic opponent is Richardson Dihvorth, Philadelphia city treasurer who led his party to a surprise victory over the entrenched GOP in that city last year. On the basis of history, however, the odds do favor Fine Only twice in 64 years has a Democrat captured the Pennsylvania governorship. The last time was 1934. If Fine does come through, it means full state power for Duff 67-year-old battler for a dynamic, progressive Republican Party. He will call the turn, too, on the 1952 delegation to the GOP national convention. There can be no doubt he will throw his weight on the side of aggressive, forward-looking Republicanism in the na- ton. In the primary he made Old Guard "Grundyism" the chief; issue. He will he looking fur a presidential prospect who reflects his own approach. November victory for Fine will put Duff in the driver's seat no matter what happens to his personal contest for the Senate job of incumbent Sen. Francis J. Myers. Democrat. Actually, Duff's own chances of election are good, though Myers is a vigorous campaigners and is already plugging hard. Six years ago Myers won by a scant 23,000. But in J9J8 the state plumped for Gov. Thomas E. Dewey by 150,000. No state gave him a bigger edge. Whatever the November outcome, the whopping 500,000 and 200,000 vote triumphs scored by Duff and Fine, respectively, are a resounding answer to Republican leaders who wonder where their party should go It's a reply thai ought to be pondered well in high parly councils everywhere. Clever People, Those Chinese The Chinese Nationalists' "department of fuller explanation" at Formosa headquarters ia tying itself in knots in its' effort to justify recent military actions on Il.iitiar. and other islands off HID China coasf, On Hainan, the Nationalists' sin- able forces resisted Communist invaders for a time, but then suddenly folded and executed a speedy withdrawal. According to Formosa, this maneuver thwarted Ked aims. Apparently, capturing Hainan could not have been one of those objectives. l Now Chiang Kai-shek has withdrawn 150,000 troops from the Chnsan islands, which served as valuable air and sea blockade bases for the Nationalists. It seems the Communists wei'e massing for an assault on the Cluisans. By pulling out and letting them have the islands, Formosa declares, the Nationalists have "smashed Ihe scheme" hatched by the Reds. One wonders what clever strategy the Nationalists will employ when the seizure of Formosa ilself becomes the Communists' "scheme" For there will then be no island left to which the Na- tio,nalists may retire to savor their strategic triumph. Views of Others Legal But Unsound The state's power to regulr.te the liquor traffic Is broad enough to Incluiie the right to fix wholesale and retail prices, the Supreme Court hns ruled. But, even as It upheld the legality of the Pair Trades Law passed by the 1919 legislature, the court pointed out that In the personal opinion of a majority ol the members the price-fixing law Is "unsound and unwise." The Fair Trades law requires all wholesalers to murk up the price of liquor 15 per cent, «nd retailers to add on another 33 1-3 per cent. The sale of Ilinior below these prices Is Illegal, nnd the police power of the state Is employed to make certain that every dealer makes the pro- tit required by law. Revenue Commissioner Dean Morley has defended the act on the ground that it'provides enough revenue for Ills department to pay for ' the services of 20 inspectors who investigate all applications for liquor permits and all violations ot liquor regulations. But this gain for the state Is minute compared to the gain to the liquor dealers who, when the act went 'into effect, obtained R price Increase some 50 cents a bottle in return for payment of 25 cent.? In taxes on a case of twelve bottles. It has also been argued In defense ol the Act that, it keeps down liquor price wars. So it does, but It Is sec. how this elcmlnatlon of competition Is In tliSlpubllc Interest, or In anybody's Interest excepftfiat of the wholesalers and retailers of liquor. The liquor business is no more competitive than, say,,the drug, grocery, or furniture business. Yes, us Justice MoPaddln—who along with Chief Justice Smith held thai the act is not only unsound but unconstitutional—wrote In his minority opinion—Arkansas liquor dealers now en- Joy an advantage not extended to any other class of businessman. They are. he pointed out, guaranteed a gross profit in their business, and the guarantee is backed by the state. There Is nothing (air about the P-.ilr Trades Act except Its title, and it Is time for Arkansas to be rid of the law The courts, while disapproving It. arc apparent!) powerless to throw out the statute.

Hoffnnn was given a rising and rousing ovation after this unexpected Introduction. He responded with si extemporaneous talk that was cie of the most moving and inspintlonal speeches Washington has leard in a long time. It was not a political speech or a cindldate's speech.

There have been man reports that he desired to resign as Marshall Plan administrator this fall. But after the demonstration he was given by CED colleagues— nearly 100 of the most progressive Sunday School _esson We have seen how the prophet Micah simplified the definition of religion. In his famous saying 'What doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, to love mer- y, nnd to walk humbly with thv ~Qd?" We might think of that as the climax, the highest point in the seven chapters of his pr-ihecy that lave come down to us. But there is something higher. The real climax is In the closing verses of the jrophecy^ Micah 7:lfcr20. In which j ru_. pardoning Could God require mercy of man without being merciful Himself? That would be contrary to all rl°ht and nil logic. God Is not only merciful, says Micah, but He delights In mercy. That highest note In the Hebrew prophecies should never be missed or forgotten. They rebuked evil with such sternness that a hasty and unintelligent scanning of their messages might incline us to re°nrd them as harsh and pesslmlsttc.°But beneath it all was the note of mercy, the message concerning God's continued call, and His willingness to forgive all Iniquities. Reconciliation was the theme of the prophets. They often pictured the forgetfulness of Qod and rebelliousness of Israel In terms ot gloom, but It was never In terms ol despair. Always there was the note of hope. Paul, a Christian thoroughly versed In the Hebrew Scriptures, was to write (in Romans 8:24) that "we are saved by hope." It Is Interesting to take a concordance and see hos much the New Testament has to say about hope. It is a theme to which Paul, especially, returns again and again Faith is the motive power of salvation, as love Is the great and true Issue of salvation (see I Corinthians 13). but hope Is its condition and Its beginning. Without hope faith can never become operative and effective, and love can never appear. Complete despalr 'dragged i political dead c«t teofe nto view.
