EDITORIAL TELEVISION CAN REVIVE 'LINCOLN- DOUGLAS' DEBATES W E ALWAYS SAID television would grow up and amount to someday. Now it's got its big chance. There's talk of a series of hour-long debates between Adiai Steven•'•on, speiaking In the affirmative on whether the Democratic Party is B good thing, and General Eisenhower, taking the negative. This would be the biggest thing of its kind since Lincoln and Douglas squared off in a similar engagement in 1858. Scheduled at any hour except maybe 4 a. m., a televised Stevenson- Eisenhower debate on the big campaign issues would have a larger audience than the entire population of the United States in 1858, which was just under 30,000,000. Stevenson is reported interested in the idea, and small wonder. The Lincoln-Douglas debates were held right around Spring^field, HI., the section where Stevenson was raised and where he now holds forth as governor. « • • F UBTHERMORE, the Lincoln-Douglas debates were first suggested and then personally arranged for by Stevenson's grandfather on his mother's side, Jesse Fell, who was a friend of both Lincoln and Douglas. Too, Stevenson has been likened to Lincoln both as to certain qualities of mind and their similarly lean and lucid styles of writing and speaking. That would stand him in good stead in debate. Despite Eisenhower's personal magnetism and hi« good mind, which would do well by him in a TV debate, he could hardly be blamed for declining to tangle with a man as well adapted to that field of endeavor as is Stevenson. But aside from and above the qualifications and inclinations of the participants in any such debate, is the overriding consideration of the value such a thing would be to the country as a whole. It would bring to the voters in dramatic form the issues to be decided and the Democratic and Republican ideas for solving them. At the moment the differences of the two nominees on certain bif issues is not too clear. On foreign policy, for instance they're pretty much together. Both •re Internationalists with a capital "I." On many domestic issues they are not far apart, both being middle-of -the -roaders, government economy advocates, and anti-big government a • a A TiCLBVlSION MEETING between the two would be sure to bring outsharply, though, those points on which they do disagree and it's important for the public to know exactly what those points are and what each nominee intends to do about them. It 's the big, shifting mass of independent voters that would be most Influenced by a clear, dramatic presentation such as the TV debates would allow. And it would be certainly a valuable gift to the democratic tradition If that clear, dramatic presentation takes place this year, and every four years from now on. The value of TV in letting the public get an inside look «t politics has bMn demonstrated at congressional hearings and at the recent party eonventions in Chicago. Both were great stimulants to public Interest In government. A TV debate between Stevenson and Eisenhower could be an even greater one.

Candidates used to campaign by- train. General Eisenhower and Governor Stevenson will criss-cross the country by train and plane. In the long run even the wear and tear of whirling around the country may be easier on them than if they sat down face to face in front of a nationwide TV hookup and debate. SEN. MOODY, »nCraGAN DEMOCRAT, suggested they do Just that. NBC President Joseph McConnell has offered them radio and TV time for a debate on the ssues. Unless they've challenged one another in confidential correspondence which hasn't been revealed, neither man has shown enthusiasm for the idea. All the issues in the campaign, so far as the voters are concerned, can be reduced to a couple of questions about the candidates themselves: (1) how well can they think and (2) what are their intentions if elected? ONE OR THE OTHER OF THE CANDIDATES might wreck himself, but the voters would benefit, if Eisenhower and Stevenson had a face to face encounter in full view of the whole country on a TV screen. Neither would have the chance, if he wanted it, to find refuge behind high pronouncements, vague promises, or those generalities that create heat but not light. It's more comfortable for both the other way, when one of them can say what he pleases without worrying that the other one, across the table, will stop him cold with an "how WM that again?"

INTERPRETING THE NEWS Russia Promised to Get Out of Manchuria Sy t. BI. BORERS. Jit . Associated Press News Analyst The belief held by some Americans that the Chinese-Russian en- "tente is a historical monstrosity wliich cannot continue Indefinitely will be under test during the current conferences in Moscow. The test will not come on arrangements for additional econom- . ic and military aid to the Peiping ': Reds who are carrying the ball for Russia in the Korean War. These matters are vital enough, but there tea fundamental question out. standing between the two countries which is more so. That is whether Russia will live up to her 1950 treaty agreeing to get out of Manchuria by the end of this year. ^ • a a • That treaty was made four months before the start of the Korean War, which adds color to the belief that Russia acted in Korea on the spur of the moment when ahe thought the U. S. would not .defend South Korea. Since then, Manchuria has be- 'borne the base for the war. The •situation is so different that the -: Chinese Communists may not even >• want the Russians to leave now. " But the occupation treaty had • been signed by the old Nationalist K ' (vernment after the Yalta agree- ent between Roosevelt and Stalin md under the pressure of Russian •A occupation during the last few J -d «ys of the war with Jai>an, which i had held Manchuria since the Sino. ^Japanese "incident'! of 1931. The '^'Russian promise of withdrawal -Iwas a great accomplishment for •itha new Peiping regmie, • • a' • i 11 Rusia doesn't get out oh ^fcbadide,'she will be in bad propa- •^Canda position througout the Ori;'^«ht, and Mao Tze-tung will be in worse one at home, i- The continuing Korean War i'lDight be used by Mao as an ex- fiiuetctr 'asking Itussia to stay. OLD NEM^PAPERS FOR m-i #Sc BUI^DLE Some face-saving arrangement of such nature might be an upshot of the current conferences. But Far Eastern observers are inclined to doubt that he will do so. Some of them think Russia may of have the puppetry situation In Manchuria so well in hand that she will be able to go through the motions of physical withdrawal without any more loss of control than she did in North Korea before the war. In that event, they expect the Russian occupation to end with a great fanfare about how the Kremlin lives up to its promises.
