AB»*D ft. K. Dally Newspaper Pufc. AWn Coon. Newspaper f>ubll»her« AM'P WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 26, 1949 Cooperation No less an authority than Chief G-Man J. Edgar Hoover takes time out occasionally to point out the value of good relations between the press and law enforcement agencies. An example of the benefits of that cooperation, as derived by the public, is the recent experience of state and Beacon Falls police authorities in the current campaign to promote safety on the new Beacon Falls superhighway. Last week, no less than 14 alleged motor vehicle law violations were subject of a single court session in Beacon Falls. This week there were only three. The road is being patrolled vigilantly by police officers -who.are •well aware of the hazards created by reckless drivers on a "speedway" through a heavily populated area.- That's the' campaign in one phase. The other phase is educational. Town officials have asked and obtained abundant space in our news and editorial columns, urging caution and warning of police vigilance. And in -the words of Prosecutor John Sulima: "Stories carried in The News during the past week" have spelled the difference between a heavy and light court docket of motor vehicle cases. The Kebels If President Truman doesn't rucceed in electing a flock of cheapjack, rubber-stamp followers to the House and Senate next year, he might as well go fishing and forget about his "program." Actions of his party leaders in Congress show what they think c* the mess he proposes in the rime of liberal progress for the United States. Senator Lucas, party leader in the Senate, is almost in open quarrel with the President, re- jlling over high farm support « ,-ders and the command to in• :all anti-capitalist Olds on the Power Commission. Speaker Rayburn of the House i3 ruffled by other Truman commands which look crazy to him. i.'enator Anderson of New Mexico, former Secretary of Agriculture in Truman's cabinet, is kicking over the traces, as is Senator Douglas of Illinois! Senator McCarran of Nevada v.-ill not respond to the Truman ;;ee-haw, and neither will Representative Vinson of the House Armed Services Committee. There ai;e many others. There is, for example, Dr. Edwin G. Nourse, who has resigned as chairman of the President's Council of Economic AdvSsers because he disagrees wholeheartedly with the Truman course. is trying to sell a bill of goods that causes the gorge to rise in the more intelligent members of his own party, in and out of Congress. It is only through Congress that the people can make their wishes felt. It is the guarantor of their rights and liberties. Few chief executives, from King Tut, Nero, Charles and Nicholas on down, ever were. Hoover M&kes Page 1 The truth is that the President Former President Herbert Hoover was in a perfect spot to deliver a table thumping speech on any one of a variety of subjects the other night. The occasion was a testimonial dinner given by the New York Board of Trade at which Mr. Hoover and Gen. George C. Marshall were presented gold plaques for "distinguished contribution to the American way." When Mr. Hoover rose to make his acceptance his audience got a jolt. For seven minutes he kept 'em laughing by explaining why none or the subjects he might have talked about would have made the front page. He said he might have talked about balancing the budget, but the subject hadn't made headlines for 18 years. The same went for foreign loans and for federal reorganization. He said he couldn't make page one, column one. with a definition of the welfare state because the President had the monopoly there. It was a slight variation of the old technique, "if I weren't too polite, and if it weren't against the law. I would call them so and sos." But Mr. Hoover was over-modest, at that. His slyly humorous comment on current affairs hit the front pages of many papers. " And he hammered home his points. Mr. Hoover, like Cicero, evidently feels that humor is pleasant, and often of extreme utility." Do You Remember? One Year Ago Postmaster Prank T.
