Sometimes they can't live with 'em or without 'em. Speaking about v.'inler colds, we get tired of hearing so many people do it. Whither Socialism? Disunity is nothing new in the British Labor Party, but it looks like the harassed Socialists will have another round of intramural combat next month. That's the occasion of the annual party conference at .Margate, England. The outlook is for conflict over both leadership and policies. To us Americans looking on from across the Atlantic, the policy battle is the more interesting. For, as recent British elections seem to demonstrate, the events of tlie past, four years have taken a good deal of the political sex appeal out of the Labor party's socialism. And the party doesn't quite know what to do about it. Reports from London indicate that many rank-and-t'ile Laborites will demand what they term a "pure socialist policy" rather that a middle-of-the-road program. Presumably this means more drastic steps. If such demands were given heed, it would greatly strengthen the leadeship of Aiieurin BeVan, the party's perennial left wing bad boy. But there is no strong evidence that demands for a heavy dose of socialist doctrine will prevail at Margate. The more temperate, and thus far dominant wing of the party is dead set against them. And tlie emerging leadership of Hugh Gailskell, who may replace Clement Attlee as party head, evidently will reinforce this opposition. Tht trouble is, Gailskell and Co. don t know what to put in place of pure socialism. Realistically, they appreciate that Britain's record prosperity under the Conservative Party outmodes the old doctrines. Vet it is hard to sec how such a route can differ much from the middle course tlie Conservatives are now following- It might be a bit leftward of it. hut only a little. If that should be the choice, it will he take;! o\er the die-hard resistance of l'ne left wiiiKL-rs. And the party thereafter will be hard pressed to convince British voters that there is supreme virtue in a policy that so closely resembles that of the mling party. The I.ahorites' problem is not unlike that of our own Democrats, who are hunting hard for issues with real bite. Prosperity and peace are a tough combination to beat. Not too many voters are eager lo wave the banners of dry political doctrine wiien they've got meat on the table and cash in the wallet. ker like ford believe* it »ee* ««W-in(«re*t in human B*fely. In the coming yaar Ford wit! oiler cars that for the first lima stress driving safety instead of just speed, chromium and garish colors. They will feature safety belts, s flexible steering wheel, interior padding for protection in crashes. All these items, company engineers indicate, should combine to make the tough steel car body a ''suit of armor" for the motorist, instead of a weapon against him. "H is a weapon only when its driver, by negligence or ignorance permits it to be," said L. U. Crusoe, Ford vice president. Presumably this means when a driver fails lo fasten himself firmly within the "suit of armor," and take advantage of its other protective possibilities. For many fatalities come because motorists are banged around inside a car at the moment of crash impact. VIEWS OF OTHERS Take Your Pick Tills is the nine of football predictions and all acrttes the land the socalled experts arc coining forth wiih All-Aniencan picks, nimibei one team picks, and picks just to be picking. The real experts in football today are the onei who can think up the kind of all-team* which nobody has thought of before , The latest among these is the "Unsung Squad." This is a pick of All-Americans who aren't going to be picked. Ttien there's the All-freshman team, the All- sophomore, ihe All-Junior, the All-Senior, and sometimes an All-American of both the offense and defense varieties. Take your pick. If your favorite player isn't on one he is sure to be on the other. The big schools place the All-Americans and the more press agents pev squad the more All- Amerirans. Time was when to be named All-American you were really something. Now, if you're going to be an All-American, you have a good chance. And it is amazing how "the" Alt-American pick can change in authority, .season by season, all according to whether our favorites land on one team or the other. This is the tune also when all the football experts, or the word coiners, set out on their annual trips around the football camps telling the mournful stories of the individual schools. The biggest mourers are rated number one in their respective conferences. If there is no mourning, it's a good sign that ihe coach has plenty of work to do making his team a t-on- tender—he has no time to mourn. That's a good sign, we think, it you want to become an expert. The coach who has no time for mourning is not burdened with an easy schedule and a squad of All-Americans to push buttons on. This: is ihe coach who musi work to see ihal non-All-Amencans get in ail their work .HO That they can perform to the best of their little abilities. Tins is the team to watch. Nov. you can sit back and enjoy the football season.- LaGrange 'Ga.i Daily News.
