The announcement doubtless was "good news" for tne militant forces of Eastern Arkansas but at the best it may be only a temporal y victory. Governor Lariey turned thumbs down on the idea at the last minute. Whether the promoters on the racing project earlier had received encouragement from the racing commission is tome thing else. Of perhaps greatest interest to all Arkansas is the fact that public opinion •till is capable of asserting itself and the militant group which protested the racing deal is to be commended. ~- Had there been little or no protest, w«.believe that the franchise for a race tr»ck would have been sanctioned by the commission thus paving the way to fill the purses of the track owners and empty the grocery baskets of literally hundred* of families who could not afford to wager their paychecks at the track hoping to reap a pot of gold. Those who waged this fight against new encroachments by gamblers operating under clo.ak of legal authority should remain alert for the re-appearance of the ugly monster's head. The yen to gamble lives on in the minds of entirely too many persons. The desire to Ramble too often finds other outlets almost at the very doorsteps of the Christian folk who have won a signal victory. There are other battles to be waged One is to educate the masses that man should earn his money, and never expect to get something for nothing. Teach the youth of this nation that there is no profit (except to the operators) in gambling and in surprisingly short time business will prosper and legitimate profits put to good use in community betterment can huilrl P >-••!_ wark agains foreign foes who seek to undermine democracies \vliere\vi . ... find good people tolerating gambling and vice and receptive to soft talk that . things cannot happen here which have happened, and are happening in other part* of the world. fifhtin' among th« Cabinet and p*lac« guard. Cordell Hull'i memoirs deal almost as much with Mr. Roosevelt as with their author. Winston Churchill's have added to the story. And now come* "The Secret Papers of Harry 1>. Hopkins" on the installment plan in Collier's Magazine, On the basis of two samples it seems to ui that the latest entry may turn out to be the best to date. For one thing, th« papem were arranged and tlicir story written by Robert E. Sherwood, the playwright and former Roosevelt speech •writer, and a gifted man with words. For another, Hopkins was closer to Roosevelt and wi'.s the repository of more inside information than anyone else in the inner circle. Mr. Sherwood is an ardent Roosevelt admirer and he makes no bones about it. He admUs that this favorable prejudice probably shows up in his writing and colors the subject mallei'. But inspite of the confessed bias, the Sherwood account strikes us as remarkable in that it probitbly will he read with do- light by people who admired Ihe wartime President extravagantly nml by those who dislikC'l him with an almost pathological bitterness. The admiration and dislike that Mr. Roosevelt inspired were a constant and powerful force in our national thought and life for a dozer, fatci'til years. Those emotions are not entirely dead. And anyone who can put himself in a neutral frame of mind will find a remarkably clear picture in these first Sherwood samples of the actions that inspired these intense feelings as the United States approached the world conflict. Those who say., that Mr. Roosevelt's penetrating vision saved this country and western civilization by aiding Britain and arming a reluctant America will find confirmation of their belief in these two articles. Those who say tlmt Mr. Roosevelt wanted lo get in the war and pushed the country to a point where war could not be avoided, while lulling the people with false assurances, will also find confirmation. 'The perspective of eight years highlights the doubt and confusion that possessed American thought and action in 1940. France was fallen, Britain seem-ed doomed, and Hitler appeared invincible. On that last Americans were generally agreed. But there agreement ended. From there ori the Roosevelt course of action is still judged in the light of individual opinion. It is clear that he was governed by a ationg personal conviction, constitutional checks and balances, and political expediency. The rest of Mr. Sherwood's Hopkins- Roosevelt story, from Pearl Harbor to Yalta, will probably revive old feelings and old controversies It also will be invaluable to those historians who, when time has passed and feelings have cooled, must evaluate. Roosevelt's true place in history. Meanwhile it is certain that those who read the narrative composed from the documents and scribbled notes of this pale, sickly, smart and courageous lowan, who rose so swiftly from obscure relief worker to "assistant President," will know a lot more about Franklin Roosevent and recent world history than they did before.
