'. . . Which h Absurd' In tlio ility.s when we struggled through geometry, we all met that met hud of. dispruuf which led up ID it liiiiil euiiflu.sioii "... which is jihsiird." The liiml of tlicliiU>r,ship which in- si'.-ls dial people shall have only .such plays, Ijook.s, movies, ami newspapers as the rulers Lelieve are best Cor them, always nuts afoul of absurdities in wholesale- lots. Two shining examples recently cropped up. In liussia there was H public scandal over the fact that a radio -station -was caught red-handed broad- casting—negro spirituals! Somebody saw insidious couiiler-rcvolutionnry propaganda in the limmliiig melodies and sivet't chords that had wandered so far from their home in the Old South. And in Germany, a movie film, . which was immensely popular in Germany in 15126, is today burred as "not coincjdmg with world philosophy of the present day in Germany." It wus Charlie Chaplin's "The Gold Rush"! If a man i.s a political dictator, he inevitably thinks he knows better 'than the rest of us what we ought to see, ami read, and hear. Which is absurd. Gag Rule to Go Jt is encouraging to note thai the gag rule which has stilled debate 'in Congress on legislation sponsored by the administration-is to be withdrawn, and that discussion is to he 'us iw- liaii]|)(.'ri!(l"b'ii tlifs" as on other forms of proposals. An administration that tries to railroad through its laws without affording any possibility of'argument on the floor of Congress is ope that doubts its owJi actions and fears Uic consequences of unchecked iiuestioning. It. is a dictatorship only less apparent than that of Germany or Italy or Russia, but almost as dangerous: in its implications. So long as there is a .semblance of a minority in Congress, that minority should be provided all avenues of attack on whatever proposals the administration and its majority membership, may offer. Only in this way ean the. people of the United States lie assured O f a fair and orderly solution to their legislative problems.
