'Jchoyuli Witness' Case Set April 26 At CaruiliersviLlc THE AMERICAN WAY The driver of an expensive automobile sped along the principle streets of: an American city „one night In 1938 running through red traffic lights, one after another as he came to. them., I say at his right elbow, speechless, "my hearl in my mouth." I was not afraid of being arrested because the license plate at each end of the car carried (he significant words "Police .Commissioner." The driver and I had been friends schoolmates, when we were boys. 1 had found myself in Ills homo city that evening with no plans and had telephoned him as a matter of courtesy! 'He was overdoing himself showing me his character. Authority to enforce law always carries temporary immunity from law. Rccomiicnse Comes A year later I watched the papers for a few days to learn the results of a certain municipal election. My old schoolmate was beaten. I was glad,'although I had nothing against him personally. His defeat gave me greater respect for his city, for Us Americanism. In America, authority originates with the people, and can not rulers who do not respect the law and see. they are trusted to enforce rarely get elected again. Democracy is like that, and the IJnilcd States has it. We may never l>c without a few' sorry election- winners but we can be very gla< r that we go on having elections We can b? grateful for a Constitution that protects o\ir votes and .shields us from hasty reactions to unexpected and irritating failures of our own tmd ol our rulers. Representative, constitutional goverm- menl gives us the benefit of deliberate, popular wisdom; cool heads of the majority. Numerous Benefits Americans receive a great many benefits from the hand of God that are unknown to people in other countries. Is God partial to Ainer- ict? Certainly not! Our special benefit's come through a channel that, our God-fearing ancestors opened for us long before our parents were born. Representative, constitutional government is that, channel. II would be hard to count all the benelils it brings. Among them ar c (1) the right to meet and worship God the best way we know, <2> the right to vote; have a_voice In government and (3) the right to work and earn and invest securely, to have something for ourselves and our families. To us these privileges are not rare. We arc. so use* to liberty we think nothing of It. but people In most of the world have no such freedom. Product of Wisdom Volumes could be written about America's special advantages, protected by her singular democracy without being eulltv of hero-worship Boosters for various governmental "novelties" keep reminding its that our forebears who framec the Constitution and apportions its powers: were not divinely inspired. We must insist on the other (hand that they were not, merely favored by dumb luck.

Mo 5.—The Caruthcisvllle "Jehovah Witnesses" case Is .scheduled Io wine, to trial here Monday, April 2G, in Circuit Court, before Judge J. V. Billings ol Kennctl on change of venue from Judge L. II, Schult, of the 38th judicial circuit. Mr. and Mrs. 'Robert J. Adair, self-styled "Jehovah Witnesses", vere arrested here In June, 1942, for peddling without a city pcd- ller's license. When the matter was Ji'oughl to attention of local po- ice, many residents charged that tlie Adalrs hud approached them with recordings and pamphlets setting forth the Jehovah Witness iaws and regulations. Adalr was tried in city court by jury June 11, and Mrs. Adair on June 12, Pines of $100 were assessed them, respectively. On tlie witness stand In court, Llicy testified thai their religious beliefs kept them from paying homage to any flag, or respect, to any laws made by man, if they were conflicted by laws of Jehovah. One of the laws which they did not respect nor recognize was Iliat or paying fines assessed in court, they indicated. They appealed their case to Missouri Supreme Court, which held they had the right Io appeal to Circuit Court, but also upheld the city's right to assess fines under city statute. Following the trials of the Adnirs, irate residents accosted one of their companions, and nskcd him to salute the American Flag. When he refused, he was slightly pummeled. Australia was called New land at first. Hoi- can not long exist apart. Check it id see. Without free enterprise, everything belongs to Hie government, and the rulers do not need tlie votes of their toiling minions. Without the popular vote, rulers (bad ones like my old schoolmate) stay In oflicc. reign by lorcc as in Asiatic countries, and make free with what everybody owns.

' EDSON IN WASHINGTON Wallace, the Amazing Mystic Ky 1'KTKK .EDSON Courier. Xcws. .Washington Correspondent An . : casy eencralfentioh frequently made is -that .vice-•'President Henry A. Wfillnce Is an impractical visionary, a :Wt' of n : myst'lc and simple matter io go on and assume dreamer. From (hat start., it is a that in a crass, hard-hendiid, material world, Henry should not bo allowed at large. Strictly for your own amazement, however, you might some time care to check back on the record of Mr. Wallace's screwy Ideas of the past, just to sec- how tlicy turned out. Take Just Hie Idea of the "ever normal granary." llenieinlier how fantastic Hint sounded when It was first presented back In 1933? When thu United States lost the world markets In which it uscil lo .su'll Is surpluses, Hie idea of storing those surpluses against lean years baked ridiculous. Yet along came the druiujlils ol 1934 and 1930', ami oh how those surpluses helped maintain supply anil keep clown prices. Again, In iaSV, vflic-n the corn carry-over was only 110 million bushels and the wheat carry-over was only 100 million bushels, Wallace called attention lo the fact that these surpluses should be doubled. Good crop years liid finally build ui> the carry-over stocks to peaks of 70S million Ijiishcls of corn In 10-10 and GOO million bushels of wheat In 1342, and the cry went ti|) that Ihe government was going to be lefl holding the hng. Yet along- came the war, and It is these very surpluses which may provide salvation as feed crops for increased livestock demands if the uso of these surpluses Is not hamstrung by legislative restrictions. • Now it Is not to bo Imagined that Henry Wallace the mystic gazed into any crystal bail and foresaw either the droughts of 1934 and '3(i or the wars of 1933 and '42, with their increased demands for farm products. .But the fact remains Hint thus far, the theory of cnry Wallace's over normal granary has worked ,aml all that can be asked of any contraption or gadget or theory of economics is that it work. The same thing goes for the much-cussed and discussed Triple A — the Agricultural Adjustment Administration program, u was born out of the depth of depression, n Wallace - sponsored brain child. It was killed by the Supreme Court In 1936. It was revived in Hi! new AAA act of 1938, taking the emplias;j o/f production of more cotton and wheat, putting more emphasis on soil conservation, planting of soil-building crops, contour plowing n nd so on. Wallace's farm program was, In all, responsible for building up national lann income from $4 billion in 1933 to $9 billion In 1910, but (hat was only (he beginning By enabling (lie farmers to earn more money, the fertility of their soil and condition of their equipment and livestock was built up to a point where agricultural America could produce the biggest crops on record, raising farm incojne to nearly $12 billion. Maybe this Is just Wallace's mystic luck, but If there had been no farm pro-grain agriculture in America would have gone down hilt and through (lie 30s. and the United States woud have entered the war under the most serious of handicaps. The Wallace record is not infallible. The "slaughter of the litile pigs," proposed by some of the farm organisations as part of the coi'iilio* program, was bad |«y- chologlcally, though economists can still be found who defend It. BUI balancing the books over the past 10 years, Wallace's Ideas have been right far oltencr than they have been wrong. An Important Announcement Concerning TOO!) It A TI 0 N I N G !
