Water Issue Election Holds BigResponsibility forVoters Tlie move by the City Council to call a special election on tlie possible purchase by the cily of HlylhevillB Witter Company indicates neither a simple nor foolproof solution to tlie problem involved. Mora than anything else, setting ol a special election will throw a burden of responsibility on every voter in Blylhe- ville. But it is a proper responsibility —that of a citizen partcipating in government and influencing decisions that affect him directly. None of the aspects of p\irchasing tha water company will be altered whether it is decided by the voters or by the Council. There are those who debate «ven tha procedural issues such as whether an election should decide this matter or whether that is the Council's renponsibility. In reply to those who feel the Connell may bs wishing to pass the buck and ihift tha responsibility to the people in case the venture i« not successful, wa »ny that an election may be the best method if for any reason whatsoever the aldermen feel the issue should be r»- ferred to the people because of its size and nature. An election will be no easy way out for either the citizens or their elected representatives. No pitfalls will be avoided or costs reduced (unless, of course, the whole program is voted down) or time saved. The most dangerous aspect of 1111 election of this sort is the uninformed voter. It would be little more than a travesty if all the voters went lo the polls knowing as little of the ramification? of this matter as many now do. An election undoubtedly will have the effect of bringing forward the opposition, which ia known to exist but which has remained publicly silent lo dale. Although it may seem from whal has been written here thai we oppose purcliaso of the water company, such is not the case. Rather, the purpose of this editorial is to sidetrack any notion? that holding an election simplifies or speeds the basic solution to any problem. It is merely a means toward an end. The issues revolving about an end are no less abundant or thorny because of the means to it. A decision such as one which laces Blythcville concerning its sewer system is no easy one. Buying a water company and building a sewer system is not something that can be done overnight if right or undone in a clay if If a special election is called, the re- wrong. sponsibilily for framing the right decision on this multi-million dollar question will he yours. British Labor PartyProposa! Plays Into Hands of Russia The British Labor Party appears to be moving leftward under the influence of the dynamic, irrespunsiUe Aneurin Bevan. It lias now issued a foreign policy statement widely noted as the most forthright in this field the party has made since its 1051 defeat. And this declaration sounds a great deal like Bevan talking. The parly wants immediate four- power talks on the future of Germany. These discussions would probe the possibility of free elections throughout tha country. What would the real effect of this program be? The plan for a European defense army, already agreed upon by Britain, Krance and the United States, might bo indefinitely delayed. To prevent the signing of tins defense pact is, indeed, a prime Russian objective. All Allied energies have been bent Ihe other way —toward getting the plan in motion. The Labor Party proposal would further consternate the whole free European community by raising false hopes of German unity. Does anyone need to be told what a shambles the Uus- sians would make of a unity conference or, if it came to that, a "free election?" The Germans might, through the period of negotiations, be encouraged to believe they could forget any responsibility for their own defense or that of the larger West of which they have lately been endeavoring to become a part. They could be lulled into dreaming again of neutrality. Sober statesmen of t h c western world have been aware for a long time that Revan has a sadly distorted sense of values. But they must read with regret that this kind of thinking is capturing the Labor Party as a whole. In any sane approach lo the German problem, you cannot put the unification of Germany first. The principal goal at this time is the defense of free Kurope against Russian communism. Only fools would argue that this could be attained coordinately with a Germany unified on terms the Russians could accept. How many limes must it be pointed out thai the withdrawal of foreign troops coincidental to a German peace pact would leave Russian soldiers poised much closer than Allied forces to Germany's vital heart? Hgw often must it be repealed that Soviet Germany has an army trained under the guise of a police force? Uo these things spell safety for the West? Manifestly they do not. Any man who can shrug off these realities and look beyond to the rosy ideal of German unity is not equipped for responsible, leadership in the Europe of today. It is significant that the Labor Tarty statement was drafted after a conference its leaders held with French and German Socialists in Bonn. For Ibe two latter branches of the Socialist Parly have made disregard of reality a virtual science. You hear il said now nnd then that the British citizen is already tiring of Winston Churchill's conservative austerity. But if this Labor declaration is an indication of the alternative he faces, the Briton had better try to control his weariness.

The union shop means compulsory unionism, a principle which Congress never has authorized, nnd is specifically forbidden by the Taft-Hartlvy act except when it is established by collective barKftinlnv;. Congress is umU'istandingly augeied by this attitude of the \\SIi. Even Sen.
