Parasites John ' McGovcrn, I.ahorite member of the British commons, was nut very polite when he shouted "idle parasites" at the kiiij; and iiueei: of Knglniul anil the as-emblcil nobles of the realm in the house of lords chamber at the opening of parliament, yesterday, tint there was a pretty good measure ot truth in what he said. • The king of England may be useful as a national symbol a focal poinU for the loyalty of British men anil women throughout the world, but that is all. His functions in government are purely nominal. He is the ornamental figurchcid through which his ministers, who are not responsible to him, at- all but to I'no parliament, and thus to the people, curry on the government. All of which makes it mota than a littlu doubtful if the mi'lions which it costs the nation to maintain the royal family arc a sound investment. Even a Miller Must Bou) to Democracy Sole significance of the farcical election by which Chancellor Hitler gained an expression of his nation's approval for the things, he hua done is that it proygSjtjijpt even a dictator,-must step out now and then and mnke a bow in the'direction of democracy. An <jlecliun in which o>>ly one sidy is permitted to do any cnmpiiii;tiing or put tip ;tny candidates really can't mean very much. But the rr.^rc fact that this election was held at all' indicates that not even Hitler cares lo proceed without at least going through tiie form of linding out how his people feel,about things. Nobody needs to bu I old that democracy has hit sonic pro:.!.y big bumps since the war. In one country after another—in RnsHa, in Italy,, in Germany, and elsewhere—dictatorship has come into style. Both the ultra-radical end the ultra- conscrvnlive have grown distrustful of democracy. It has become, fashionable to say that popular government Is an out-of-date idea. And in all this we in America have a peculiar interest. Not only do we ourselves live in one of the surviving OUT OUB WAY democracies; democracy itself is, to all inlcnts and purposes, our invention. We seO up flic first ({real democracy; we forced Hie world to examine the idea; we were at tlic bottom of the whole movement toward ci]unlitarian- ism and political liberty. So today we cannol lie indifferent to the steady trend away from democracy which thu world is exhibiting; nor can wi; fail lo find '•omcthintf extremely interest in},' in these ridiculous referenda which dictator like Hitler feel it necessary to hold every so often. . » » For such votes, absurd as they may be, ncvci'tlieles.-i pom! to the .solidity of de'moeracy r :i basic idea—that there can be no secure (,'oveinment which -docs not operate with the consenl of those it governs. There can In; no unalloyed autocracy any more. Kven a Hitler nnisl go through Hie motions of seeinjf what is on the voters* mind.-. Ami that, dark as ilpivncnicy's prospects may seem, is highly important. The idea which is democracy's foundation stone ha.; been accepted even by the enemies of democracy. • !T we in America continue to keep the light of political liberty burning clearly, democracy yet will regain the • ground it has lost. —Uruce Catton. dollies (or Convicts There hits been a lot of talk lately about Arkansas' paroic system and .'eniqncy to convicts. I Ihlnk 'some ol Hie criticism hns been Justified, but even It it is conceded that the system Is hut. there Is nothing that can be done nlxiut It. All lliat, howcicr, Is iKsidu the point. . Convicts ill Tucker form (ire without sul- flcicnt clothing. They do. ml even have n change of clothing. And the* clothes they do have consist of a thin pair of overalls.
