No Industries? This Ph.D. Forgets His Pay Source A clicc.ry liUle prophet o f tloom waltzed out of'tax-supported University of Tennessee the other day and informed Die people of lladisonville, Teiin., that industrialization, long the goal of many a Southern city, endangers standards of education, religion and family life. v " That is saying finite a mouthful, even for a college professor wiio depends on the receipts of Mailisonville merchants for his salary, in part anyway. And he certainly hit at our most dignified and treasured institutions when he pointed out dangers lo church, school and home. Hours of work, quoth lie, may interfere with church and other community activity. Right now, we can't recall much church and community activity being carried on in those communities which haven't work for tlieir people , , . mainly on account of the fact that thesa communities doifl have any people. Ghost towns, folks call them. \\ e know a small-town editor has no business challenging a Ph.D., but still there seem to remain some things that arc fundamental to the extent we can get a pretty yootl grasp on them. For one thing, we in Blytheville liavi: some mighty nice schools, churches and homes to pay for. We think that we're going to have to endanger them to (he extent that we must keep the most people at work the most time (within our commonly accepted social and religious traditions) anil even go so far as to get morb work for additional people so we can build even bigger and better churches, schools and homes. Vie can't follow the good doctor along the road of thinking that leads to accomplishing nothing. It's a good thing the folks who first walked into Mississippi County when it was a malaria-ridden wilderness didn't lean to his way of thinking, either. We think the Im.siiie.ssntcn should keep working for industry, if for no other reason than to pay taxes so I'h.D.'s will be gainfully employed. Small, Mobile Defense Force Wise and Thrifty Every soljcr-mimled American rec- ognwes that in building adequate defenses this country is trying to steer a difficult course between too little security ami too heavy mid lasting a drain upon the economy. ' _ It i« no contribution toward * solu- tion of this problem to hack away at tha inilitury and foreign aid budget recklessly. Nor is it any bellcr to propose astronomical sums for defense and then declare they should be illumine to the primer's knife. U'ltat we are looking for in these times are genuinely constructive suggestions which show a full awareness of the basic dilemma. \Ve are trying to avoid letting Joseph Stalin conquer America, and its allies either directly by military assault or indirectly through the bankruptcy of this nation. We got such a proposal when John Foster Dulles ami others recommended that, instead of trying lo defei.d every nook and cranny of the free world with foot soldiers, we create a highly mobile and powerful striking force to be held in .strategic locations for swift dispatch to trouble zones. T/iis arrangement has obvious virtues both militarily and economically, since it would impart great flexibility to defensive operations while saving large numbers of men who otherwise would be committed lo widely stretched border defense. Now General Kisenhower has added another constructive thought. As reported in secret testimony given to a Senate committee in his behalf by General Gruenther, his NATO chief o'f staff, Eisenhower believes Dial we should place our reliance upon n relatively small active striking force — backed tip by a very substantial and highly effective reserve force. This proposal is in the same clirec-1 lion as the Dulles plan. Said Gruenther: "General Eisenhower's philosophy in meeting [his (Russian) threat is that if \ve try to tnecH the Soviets division for division and plane for plane, we are going to (ose the battle from an economic viewpoint." This plan would avoid maintaining large, costly standing armies. It would avoid equipping them to the full with weapons which might easily be outmoded by the time a war began. A relatively small force, if sufficiently strong and mobile, is nol inconsistent with the hardest necessities of ' real security, provided also that It is buttressed by thoroughly trained reserves and an industrial capacity capable of a lightning shift to wnr goods to eijtiip them. From such sources as Dulles a n A Eisenhower and Senator Douglas of Illinois, we are getting fresh elements for H sensible, safe and financially feasible policy of defense. It is fair to hope that the administration is taking: full note of these proposals. They are nn attempt to give not only American but Allied policy real substance and clear objectives. They are original, imaginative und contain the spark of positive leadership. All but the most partisan administration supporters will concede we have not had too much of these qualities lately in the conduct of our foreign affairs. Views of Others Everybody's Against Communism Quite frequently these days orgiimiations and Individuals pass resolutions or make public statements placing themselves on record in opposition to Communism, its subversion and aggression. And It is Indeed good that onr citizens recognize the danger of llial false ideology nnd oppose it. H takes little courage to oppose Communism, for the choice is rnsy to make, requires link deep consideration and is gcneinlly approved and accepted. Pul the nation Ij cudangeicd by Socialism, just as il is by Communism, and by phony liber- nlbm and various other degrees of leftism. While CommimiMn poses n danger from «-ilh- out. other leftist Ideologies pose Just us serious danger to the American way of life from wilhin. Unfortunately, we do not sec so many people opposing the leftward threat as the cx- leinal leftward threat.

TUESDAY, MAY IT, 19St Turnabout ^\ ffc THERE WHEN HE'D VuTUP AIM0ST OLO "T AM Sliu A DEMOCWAJ; BUT- Peter Edson's Washington Column — Wisconsin Hopefuls Shape Up To Race McCarthy to Senate WASHINGTON <NEA) — The general supposition has been that. Wisconsin Sen. Joseph R. McCarthy is unbeatable in his bid for re-cle=- lion this fall. But events nre now shiiping up in the Badger state to give htm a run [or his money. With a July 8 3etKlline for filing ns candidates for the September 9 state primary, there is Teter Eilson now one nvovvctl- Democratic cnndidate for McCarthy's Senate seat, with another entry or two likely.

Sclunitt-'.s backer oil his Washington visit and his .supporter i\t home is William T. Evjue, editor of Ihc Madison. Wi.v. Cnpltal Times. Mr. Evjue is a crusading editor of the old Fiyhtin' nob LaFolletle progressive school. His paper has impression on his visit to Washington. He is a husky, blonri and blue- eyed German Catholic, Tills is said to be nn important factor in his favor. Wisconsin is about 30 per cent Catholic and it is German to a tar erealer degree. The Germans far outnumber the Irish—with which faction Senator McCarthy is iden- ti/ied. Schmitt also counts heavily on being able to attract the old La- FolleUc progressive faction in the primary. If (.lie Democrats have no strong candidate to run ngains/, McCarthy. Schmitt believes the an- il-McCarthy Democrats would throw their support to him. While Senator McCarthy had been backed by the Wisconsin Republican organisation under Tom Coleman as a particular favorite, there are some elements in the state on whose support he may not be able to depend this year. HEP. ALVIN O'KONSKI, for instance, is bitter against the McCarthy - Coleman leadership lor their opposition to his application for a Merrill, wis.. radio station license, O'Konski is'a former director of the World League to Stop Communism and a former president of the American Anti-Communist Assn. This indicates that McCarthy's opposition to communism is not a monopoly. One other paradox in the McCarthy story, according to Schmitt. is that the senator was elected in 1946 with considerable help from Communist factions in the Wisconsin organized labor movement. This arose because young Sen, Bob LaFollette, in disbanding the old Progressive party, cliosc to go with the c ted chapter and verse on McCnr- Republican-, instead of the Dcmo- thys record 111 Wisconsin, before hcirr.-it.v Communist elements In con- came to Washington, and lias never, trol of Wisconsin labor or^auiza- '' 0 °" " S ctarBes - I tic " 1!i «<• the time thereupon de- made a favorable | nounccd LaFoliette and voted for McCarthy. • * • TODAY THIS Communist control of organized labor In Wisconsin has been largely cleaned out, and the unions' official support is expected to go to anyone who wi!l oppose McCarthy.
