Democrats Have No Patent On the 'American Dream' President Truman says he wants the Republican Party to be a healthy op- »ition force. But it's not clear from this that he's entirely gold on an effective two-party system. The President currently is casting himself in the role of the nation's No. 1 booster. He is talking in glowing terms of the country's future. But he tells the people this future I* only realizable through the Democratic Party which he heads. His party, h« says, is the party of the American dream—the repository of all our great hopes. According to Mr. Truman, this is not only tue now; it has always been •o- • If the President is right, what is left for "the Republicans? The American nightmare? Apparently Mr. Truman conceives of an opposition party as one which merely «hall serve as a check upon the mistakes and excesses of a continuously dominant Democratic Party. It's hard to read any other meaning into his words. - But tolerance of a "loyal opposition" is not endorsement of the two-party system. It's one-party talk and nothing else. A second party which is not qualified to hold power itself and is not rated worthy of advancing the American dream is not an effective contributor to two- party government. It's a strange outlook that assumes members of an opposition party should be allowed to do everything but hold office. Yet that's the logic of Mr. Truman's insistence vhat all hope lies with the Democrats. He isn't alone in this kind of thinking, either. Many national figures follow a similar line. One need not defend any particular Republican, or the Republican Party at any particular time, t(, insist upon equal access to power Cor the GOP—or any second party of major strength. The American dream is not the private preserve of the Democratic Party. It belongs to the whole people. They should be able to exercise their right of free choice between political parties, policies and men without forfeiting that dream. to take Lie's word. Certainly we're not going to get a chance to make a saliva test." ,lf Stalin is actually in good shape, that still leaves some unanswered questions. Why did Soviet propagandists fake a picture of him voting at the recent Russian elections'.' Why didn't he make his usual election-eve address to the people? ' Maybe, of course, he was suffering from nothing more than a bad cold —or virus X, if that is allowed behind the Iron Curtain. For the Communist myth is rooted in the infallibility of the Soviet leaders. Ilness is a human imperfection that cannot be acknowledged. It comes to light only when they die. Views of Others Radical Invasion of the Business Office Another Invasion ot amlncss L? put on record j by the National Labor Relations Board In an order to a Rochester firm lo sliow Its payrolls to a union. The holding is that a union is entitled lo the names, positions rates of pay, etc,, us a basis for negotiations on wages. An added gesture was to the effect thai a non-union em- ploye can also demand access to the books. This appears as a fairly violent departure from American business practices. Heretofore, employment, pay and position have been matters between the employer and employe; the managers of • business were assumed to have a right to conduct their own affairs and were not required to be at the mercy of payroll snoopers, sea lawyers and agitators. Now, it seems, anybody who wants to know aU about what the boss is doin? merely has to complain to the government. We do not sec how tills is any great advantage ^o the workers as a whole or helps in cordial relations. This new move Is an adriert Item In the tendency to make it appear that the employer is always an oppressor, ap.d mi.lsl be checked and doublechecked by the walking delegates, the government sleuths and almost anybody else who may exhibit the requisite curiosity and nffrontcry. In other words, no man who has a payroll to meet is entitled to attend to his own business; Tom, Dick and Harry are preferential supervisors. —TUL5A (Okla.) world After All, Stalin Means 'Man of Iron' Trygve Lie's visit to Premier Stalin in Moscow may or may not prove to Vie a step toward ending the cold war. But one thing is sure: It docs seem to squelch at least for awhile the rumors that -Stalin is in desperately poor health. Lie says he found the Russian dictator "just as healthy and lively as he waa in 1046." Unless the UN secrelary- sencral was looking at a double or R Stalin primed with dnifs, we'll have Fixing for a Day of Reckoning Arkansas tins been having the most prosperous peiiod in its history.

After that directors should take to maintain tne best possible health Is not easy to say. However, the strenuous athletics which Is all right for a young man of 13 or 20 can harm the rapidly growing boy of 13 or the man of 40. Age is one of the factors to take Into consideration when considering exercise. The greatest amount of physical exertion can undoubtedly be taken by you tig men in full maturity, usually from about 18 to 25. Even at these ages, however, it is possible to overdo, especially for the man who is hot "In training." Also as one correspondent recently wrote , me, scholastic sports should be for amusement and not so strenuously conducted as to injure the heart, After the lale 20's there Is a gradual decrease in the tolerance to strenuous physical exertion, though, of course, the ability is tremendously Influenced by practice and "condition;" The sex also Influence!! the amount and kind of physical exercise desirable. There are certain types of exercise which women can stand better thati men. For example, most women can stay In cold water longer than men because they have a larger amount of fat under the skin which serves as insulating material. The muscles of women, however. are not as a rule so well developed as those of men and their organs are so arranged that certain types of physical exertion are frequently undesirable and can cause difficulty.

It's about the gentle, blue-eyed men and women who made up the Icelandic delegation to the meeting up In New Hampshire where World Bank and fund were set U' !The problems were compile .md for a month delegates and press alike worked both day and nlgnt. But one evening the U.S. Suite Department called a halt and put on an American movie. I sat with the big pink-cheeked President of the Bank of Iceland. We chatted before the picture. By Mark Twain "Miss Arne," he said, "I am now going through your magnificent American literature. Right now I am doing Mark Twain." 1 said: "Oh, fine. Do you know The Celebrated Jumping Krog ol Calaveras County'?" He puckered his brows a little and said. "The yumping frog I :now But. the yoke I cannot see." 7 questioned him and found he was disturbed (hat Americans would augh over a fraud. Remember the tory tells about a country frog race n which one of the best frogs Is ;lven a diet of buck-shot to make ilm lose the race. Yoke Not Funny My Icelandic friend didn't think hat was funny. So I explained that we were really laughing because the man had gone U> so much trouble or such a little gain, that in Ameria the same sort o/ hard work, if a man had big vision, would get him o much more. So we were only aughing at stupidity. My friend looked relieved. His :aith In the United States had apparently been restored. . ^ A few nights later he and the tWl of his delegation asked me shyly :o go to the tap-room with them ieforr, dinner and drink a toast to Iceland.

Senator Fulbright makes no personal charges against any of these men. There is no indication, ot fraud or dishonesty. There is no desire to of exercise has to be decreased.

In general, however, there is some belief in Congress that RFC has been too subject to political pressure In making loans. There is criticism that RFC has not been a tough enough banker. Senator Fulbright cites several examples. He mentions how hard ft is to get a $1,000,000 appropriation through Congress. Yet RFC makes big loans by brief announce' of the items weighed In choosin what kind and amount of exercls* to indulge in. 75 Years Ago Today The highest ranking ttudent In the senior class of the Gulf Coas Military Academy was the hono won by Charles Langston, son o ments after ' closed hearings.
