Blame the high price oT 'emE AMemorial Is Dedicated On the anniversary of Hie founding of the first democracy among the nations of the world, members of Dud Cason Post of The American Legion dedicated their memorial auditorium in Blytheville to the heroes of World Wars 1 and II. Constructed of concrete and steel, it will stand fhrough the ages as « structure but only constant vigilance on the part of all citizens will make it the living memorial that it WHS intended to be by those active in the Legion who conceived the idea mul saw the project through to completion as a building. But the extent that it will he a memorial is something that calls for more x than concrete and steel. It calls for alertness on the part of the Legionnaires and every citizen in Mississippi County and all the other counties in democracies everywhere. Right here in America, and in nations throughout the world, where civilization has shown the greatest progress, forces behind an iron curtain are at work to undermine democracies und turn them into totalitarian governments where all is lost that is held dear in countries where the people rule. The food on which communism thrives is to be found in this country, and communist leaders ask for nothing better than the complacency so often evident in democratic countries as they set about under the cover of darkness to plant their seeds of discord, hoping they will produce weeds of hatred to choke out the very lifeblood of things democratic. The motives of The American Legion in planning a memorial auditorium were of the highest to be found in a democratic country. The perseverance show by members of Dud Cason Post in seeing the project through to completion deserves the commendation of every citizen in Mississippi County. Blytheville Legionnaires have given this city anil this county a memorial in which we can take great pride. But if we accept the memorial as merely so much concrete and steel and nothing more, there is danger ahead. The memorial should serve a s a re- .minder for every person who enters its doors, for every person who so much as glances at the exterior of a fine build- mg, that it was erected and dedicated to the memory of men who died in the service of their country—men who fought and conquered on the field of battle one of the greatest enemies of democracies. While Hitlerisrn and the war lords of Japan no longer are a threat to the world, it must be remembered that greed and lust for power have not been killed. There is danger today that a. new demon's head will rise to again threaten those things which are dearest in democracies, things which had their origin >n the minds and hearts of Christian men and women. L*t us hop* that the memorial will BLYTHRVTU.B (APK.)' COURIER NEWS encourage people who love their freedom to worship, their freedom of speech, to.remember that it cannot be preserved merely because it was inherited. Let us hop* that this memorial and others throughout the land will give us a new determination to preserve freedoms and strike down all foes of democracies— not on the battle field, but through peaceful means. Alert citizens can prevent World War III. But it is doubtful that we are sufficiently alert when no more than 200 turn out for «n event such as the dcrii- cation on July Fourth, 1048, of Blytlie- ville's Memorial Auditorium. Capable of seating 3,000, it should have been filled with freedom-loving citizens eager to pay tribute to the heroes in whose name it was so fittingly dedicated, and to show appreciation for the thoughtfulness of the men who served in World Wars I and 11, survived and returned home to work ceaselessly to Jiiiike this a better place m which lo live.

"Are you really playing ball with your son?" asks » distiller's full-page advertisement. The appeal goes on: No son on long respecter honor the father who falls to set a worthy pattern ot right living, who (alls to abide by the code ot moderation.

To them we can only say: You know not what you HO, There arc others behind it. we are sure, whose sincerity Is compromised with other motives. They well know what they do—and so do we. This «d preaches moderation eloquently, and if that wert all, commenrtably. But, what else does It convey? It assumes that this "risht living" father, ol course, drinks. It assumes Hint this son. ot course, will drink. It assumes that this sou is free from physiological weaknesses on which Hie liquor industry »o engerly blames all alcoholism—that his first drink, taken it Is to bc presumed under fatherly tutelage, will lead surely to gentlemanly "moderation," not to the gutter. it assumes tiiac the American public is too stupid lo know that no dislillcr buys full-page space lo sell \m whisky.
