But when it comes to details, the promises trail off into thin air. There is surely nothing wrong with stating that we can never, as a matter of principle, accept the permanent subjugation of the eastern satellites to Russian tyranny. We cannot recognize conquest by whatever means. It is well that we tell these people and the whole world again and again that we stand for freedom in Eastern Europe, as we do everywhere else. But it is something else to talk as if we were going to embark on liberating adventure the day after tomorrow. We should make clear in all our assertions of support for the oppressed of Eastern Europe that we are not inciting them to early revolt. « • • T O SAY ANYTHING TO THEM IN A WAY they may interpret as encouragement to rebellion i<: to DIP " with their very lives. We can never forget the Warsaw massacre of World War 11, when eager Poles rose up prematureiy to scnKe ai tiieir iNazi conquerors. Obviously we cannot mean at this time to stir even guerrilla warfare on any systematic, sustained scale. Struggle of this sort must rinevitably fail if it is not finpHv pc-r'ctpH hv o'^'^^r measures, perhaps including invasion by friends of the oppressed. There is not the slight •est sign that any such aecisive lueaoui^o are in the making. Much as we want to help these nations, we have to face the brutal truth that there is not a lot we can do concretely to aid them now. Naturally we must aid the refugees who courageously break across the Soviet-patrolled borders of Iron Curtain country. Naturally, too, we must bombard the satellites with propaganda aimed at keeping the fires of freedom going brightly. * • « T O A POLE OR A CZECH who wants freedom in his lifetime, however, that may not be altogether satisfactory. Some of them, understandably, may actually hope for a general war, believing that out of it will come quicker liberation. Yet the realists behind the Curtain must doubt that liberty bought at the price of the ruin spread by another great war is well purchased. The one best hope for the enchained Eastern Europeans probably lies in confronting the Soviet Union with such a mass of Western strength that the Russians cannot move aggressively anywhere. From then on, Russian power would seem destined inescapably to diminish. And as that happened, the Kremlin's grasp on the satellites would be loosened. This may not sound like much to offer the millions who live for the day of liberation. But any greater promise at this time would be delusion, if not outright deception. Theyll Do It Every Time .0^ By Jimmy Hatlo WHYZITP DURl^46 REME4RS4L,-rWE ACTORS ARE NER\O0S AUD THE PRODUCER S COOL UKE A 'COOLCLW8ER TOO MUCH OF A GOOD THING E NGLISH AUTHORS ARE COMPLAINING they're unduly hard hit by taxes. They've been writing letters to the newspapers about it. One writes, "Officialdom knows perfectly well that authors are wiable to go on strike, as they can never resist the temptation to write, even if there is to be no recompense." Now that's too bad. It's a downright shame. In fact, it's one thing that's wrong with things today. Too many writers are unable to tura off the muse. They get so infatuated with the sound of their own typewriters that they keep on writing whether they have anything to write about or not. The result is billions of words which nobody has time to read, much less ponder and digest. With the result that the written word M losing some of Its once-great power. Just a case of too much of a good thing. So,, having no wish to denounce an evil and then go right committing it, we'll bite this thing off right here. on Maryland Musings Antwtr fo Praviout Puizl« Radio DEAN MARTIN AND JERRY LEWIS TO TAKE HOPE SPOT HOBIZONTAL MTin.ltad aU07 IMaryUnd 's W Angry aUte flower i* VIKIICAL the black- eyed e'Tatti MaschUI, Parole Femine" is Maryland's U Makes speeches IS Continued story 14 Newest 15 Gossip leiierra del Fuego Indian 17 Division ot the calyx 19 Card game 20 Transgressions 22 Golf term 23 Number (pL) 24Vipers 26EropbaBli 28 Lion 30 Gibbon SlSiek 32C <Mnp«af point SSRetrogrtd* 36 Jewish month 39Fuoff (comb, form) 40 Land parMl > 42 Heavy blow 44 BfebanunadaA titte ,4»Proagi dTRooCjBlal MKiodefpafan MUkmr of thaaa •n%aUwd«t AawnoUi. tniMrflfolate 1, '^•^y** , llndividutl perfomanocs SMuse of astronomy SDtvilt 4 Dined 5 Promontory 9 Repast 7 Table scrap 8 Names 9 Claws 10 Ersatz butter (slang) 12 Pace 13 Frighten suddenly 18 Dance step 21 Fasten securely (coU.) o H 1 O L.

BRYANT Gas H «Qtinf OLEN EATER Heatlnc A Rheet Metal Works TeJephonc S49 - U. S. Editors Support Ike 4 to 1; Say He WUl Win in Close Kaco By PETER EDSON JTEA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON — U. S. daily newspaper editors arc supporting Republican Dwight D. Eisenhower for the presidency by a ratio of four to one. But approximately editor in si.x is supportin neither Eisenhower nor Gov. Adlai Stevenson, the Democratic nominee. The same majority of the editors believe that General Eisenhower will win the election. An average of their predictions gives the Republican nominee a margin of 31 electoral votes—281 to 250 Two hundred and si.\ty-six .of the 531 ecectoral votes arc necessary for victory. On the popular vote, editors believe the Republican plurality will be a little over 2,500,000. The average of their predictions is for a total Republican vote of 28,420,000 as against a Democratic vote of 25,420,000. This would mean a total vote of over 54,000.000 in 1952. It would be considerabl yabove the 48,690,000 votes Cast in 1948. But it would be considerably below the 60,000,000 total vote hoped for. These are the highlights of a poll of the 700 U, S. newspapers receiving this column. The editors of these papers wore asked 15 quos- tions on the prospects, trends and issiles in the 1952 campaign. Over 350 editors replied to the questionnaire. This 50 per cent return is considered a good result for this kind of a mail survey of opinion. Repies came from every state in the union and were well- balanced geographically. So the poll gives a good cross-section of editorial opinion two months before the election. Southeast, Southwest Sharply Divided The repies make possible an interesting comparison of editorial opinion in six main U. S. areas: New England and the Middle Atlantic States; the South, east of the Mississippi River; the South, west of the Mississippi River; the Midwest, east of the Mississippi; the Prairie states, west of the Mississippi, and the Rocky Mountain and West Coast states. Only in the Southeast and the Southwest does the Democratic ticket have strong editorial support But even here only 42 per cent of the ^itors said they were supporting Stevenson and Sparkman. In the Southeast, 42 per cent were supporting Eisenhower and Nixon. In the Southwest the Republican ticket has 35 per cent of /the editorial support. But in this area 24 per cent of the editors say they will support neither candidate. This is also the sentiment of 16 per cent of the editors in the Southeast and 18 per' cent in tlie Midwest.- By contrast, the Republican ticket is supported by 73 per cent of the papers in the Midwest. 84 per cent in the Prairie states, 85 per cent in the Far West and a high of 92 per cent in the Northeast. The national total shows 68 per cent of the papers for the Republicans. 17 per cent for the Democrats, 12 per cent supporting neither and only 3 per cent not hav- - INSURANCE Per assurance of friendly, understanding and dependable service and helpful fieldman— SEE OR CALL W.

On predicting the results of the election in both popular and electoral college votes, the editors', ... . ^j,,, „ on views varied vastly. About half the ' '^'^f **Vf ^0 ^0,"^'"'°" ^OP, 20 editors admitted frankly that it' m'H'on. Demociatic. gives the Republicans a victory by a plurality of over four million votes—29 million to 25 million. Only a few papers, like the Lead (S.D.) Call, Batesville (Ark.) Guard, Ava, (Okla.) Review-Courier and the Easton Pa.) Express, thought that the total vote would get up to the 60-mJllion mark, lA 'ilh a 35-million vote for the Republicans. The Newton da.) News was still too early in the campaign to tell. Of those who did make a guess, the range was from a prediction for a Republican laiidslidc of 405 electoral votes out of the 531 made by the Reflector-Chronicle of Abilene, Kans., Ike's home town, to a Democratic victory of 375-156, predicted by the Parkersburg, (W. Va.) Sentinel. iMidwest Sees Big OOP Plurality Northeast and Midwest ieditors leaned more towards a bigger Republican victory, which was only to be expected. But an average of Southeastern editors' predictions gave the Democrats a victory by only three electoral ,votes~267 to 264. The same Southeastern editors guessed that the Democrats would win by a pwpular vote margin of less than a million—28.700,000 to 27,800.000. If this prediction is borne out, it will be one of the closest races in history. On the other hand, an average of Midwestern editorial opinion The general theory of Democratic politicians has been that the bigger the vote, the better chance for a Democratic Party victory. This is represented in the opinion of editors like Tom Humphrey of the Portland (Ore.) Journal, who predicts a 30-million to 35-minion • victory for Governor Stevenson. The Douglas (Ariz.) Dispatch, Edmond (Okla.) Enterprise, Keyser (W. Va.) News and Celina (O.) Standard and others share this pre" diction. But far more papers feel that there will be a considerable "stay home" movement This, and other aspects of this survey of editorial opinion, will be reviewed in this space in the next issue.
