TUESDAY, DECEMBER 7,1954 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE FIVB In Some Respects, Joe McCarthy Resembles the Late Huey P. Long By JAMES MARLOW WASHINGTON (AP) — There is a fundamental difference between Sen. McCarthy (R- Wis) and the late Sen. Huey P. Long (D-La). Long was always for something. McCarthy has been steadily against something. By JAMES MARLOW < WASHINGTON UB—There is a fundamental difference between Sen. McCarthy (K-Wis) and the late Sen. Huy P. Long (D-La). Long was always for something. McCarthy has been s t e s d 11 y Against something. Both men, emerging into national prominence at a time when the people of the country were deply troubled, made careers for themselves by latching onto the cause of the trouble. Long, arising in the depression, was for sharing the wealth. McCarthy, coming out of obscurity when the country was vastly disturbed by fears of Communist infiltration, has been against communism. Good Following Both men had a good-size, although minority, following. At the time he was killed by an assas- sin's.bullet in 1935, Long's following was increasing. There is evidence McCarthy's support has declined before the Senate condemned him last week for his conduct. The contrast raises a question: Can an American politician get a majority following if his only theme is being against something? McCarthy and Long both operated under the handicap of not having a monopoly on their ideas at the . time they were proclaiming them and trying to enlarge their following. Long's cure-all for the country's economic sickness might have brought him more Support, in spite of tactics others found offensive, If the masses hadn't seen the Roosevelt administration administering an easier-to-believe remedy with programs for more economic security and work projects, supported by taxes, which were a form of wealth sharing. If Long had lived to 1936 and run for president his following might not then have been large enough to elect him. But It might have cost President Roosevelt enough votes to let the Republican nominee, Afl M. Landon, win. Postmaster General James Parley later said Long might have had the balance of power.

Caruthersville News By SONNY SANDHS The Southwestern Singers, from Southwestern at Memphis, sang before a medium sized group at the Presbyterian Church in Ca- •uthersville last Thursday night. The singers went on by chartered bus to St. Louis after their engagement here. At St. Louis they had two performances over the weekend with the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra. Although the entire musical group consists of more than 100 students, only 80 members made the trip. The singers stayed overnight in Caruthersville in the homes of local people. Before that they were treated to supper by the women of the church and a party by the young people's group. Rev. James Blanton, pastor ot the Presbyterian Church, said that the group goes on tour through four southern states each summer. The high school's Student Activity committee arranged for the comedy play, "Girl Crazy," to be presented at the school last Friday afternoon. The three-act adaptation of the musical comedy of the same name was presented by the drama class of the Hayti High School. Hayti's drama Instructor, who directed the play, is Jasamyn S, Garrett. Performers who are affiliated with Troop 1313 of the National Thespian Honor Society were Doris Adkisson. Byron Tinsley, Lee Downing, Robert Cooper. Gaylon Coleman, Jim Cunningham. Joyce Booles, Joy Edwards, Alma Jo Curtis, Harriet Shrader. Hannah Stewart, and Dorothy Owens, The other actors and actresses were Tommy Patchett. Florence White, Billie Randolph. Jerry Robertson, Benny Jack Phillips, and John Emerson. enough Votes to let the Republican nominee, AH M. Landon, win. Postmaster General James Parley later said Long might have had the balance of power. McCarthy, like Long in the depression days, had a ready audience when he made his first big bid for prominence with his February 1950 speech charging the State Department was infiltrated with Communists. It got instant attention. Piling charge upon charge has been his stock-in-trade ever since. At the time McCarthy came along the country was bewildered, nervous and suspicious as a result of revelations and charges made in the late 1940s by congressional committees and two self-confessed ex-couriers for government spy rings, Whlttaker Chambers and Elizabeth Bentley. Although McCarthy now calls himself the symbol of anticommu- nism, he cannot claim he alone has looked for Communists or fought them. The Truman administration had a loyalty program before McCarthy started. And the Elsenhow- er administration, with less sensa tionalism than McCarthy, has con- tinued hunting Communists with a program of its own. Congressional committees probed for Reds during both administrations. Just as Long's following might have caused trouble for Roosevelt in 1936, McCarthy's following, if he can hold on to it. may cause trouble for the Eisenhower wing of the Republican party in the 1956 elections. McCarthy, disclaiming any presidential ambitions of his own, says he will continue searching for Communists in the government. This can hardly mean less than a Republican family' tight, as it did this year. But McCarthy's power in the Republican party depends upon the following he can hold. And unless he produces more results than he has in the first two years of the Republican administration, his concentration on the same theme and no other — anticommunism — may bore even his followers. His stock no doubt would go up if he uncovered some Communist sensation—like an hitherto undiscovered spy ring—or if he shifted to some other program by being FOR something that attracted a mass following.
