PAGE FOUR THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE and LDGANSPORT TRESS, LOGANSPORT, INDIANA SUNDAY, OCTOBER 23. im_ Editorials... iCONlGRESSMAN HALLECK DESERVES RE-ELECTION ! When, after twenty-five years v o" service in the House' of'.Representatives, a congressman at- tains one of>the most important posts in the legislative-branch of bur "government'and performs ' < that job. in a highly creditable manner* he is cer- ; tainly deserving of re-election by his constituents. It would reflect to.the-credit of Logansport," - Cass County, and "the entire Second District if 1 Congressman Charles A. Halleck were' given "a resounding vote of confidence ..in the election on Nov. 8. ; Halleck has attained a national stature reserv- ' ed for, only a handful of people ever,to represent -' .this state in-its history. His job as minority leader - of the House and as one of President Eisenhow- ' er's right hand men has.been performed.with; finesse, tremendous: success, and to : the benefit of the nation. Halleck has been largely personally responsible for the success of the President's leg. islative r program in a House controlled by the opposition party. He too was mainly responsible for upholding in the 86th Congress three of the, ': presidential vetoes which resulted-in a savings to ^ the taxpayer of one and a quarter billion dollars. 5' The letter written to Halleck by the President is ;'• eloquent tribute to•Halleck I s : ability. .,.--.._•",--. :; The firm, masterful handling of the GOP na- v tional convention this past summer in his capacity '"'• as permanent'.chairman is another achievement J: of which his;district can be'proud. ; -'; ,'.'." ^ Further, when a'man.like Jimmy Hoffa has 7 publicly., announced that Halleck is'one of the ;., two congressmen in Indiana that he wants to see £ get beaten, then .it is ..time we all get a.little con: cerned about" the. reasons why. Similarly, when . a man like. Michigan.'Governor G..Mermen Williams comes-into-thevSecond District, as he did recently, to urge the defeat of Halleck, it gives us still further cause for wonderment. Williams is the left-wing 'Michigan Governor who has broughtiis.state.to.the.brink of bankruptcy with his unstable fiscal-programs. - Mr. •Ha'llecK's.oppdnent.is an untried, inexperienced individual who has::traveled trig Second District-criticizing often, but offering no specific substitutes for doing things'better. We do not'believe ; . the Second District is interested in replacing-a tremendously successful man holding- i a\yital..spot in "the. nation's legislative ch'ambers.'with one who has little to offer. Mr. Halleck deserves the support;of,the voters for 'an outstanding 'joti well done. — •,;--;LET'S ? p|lT IT OVE R ' The Cass Courity/United Fund'drive is now in its final stages^•; with a"/Tsizeable.amount of . money still to be;faised,; ; : r.. •..-•.-' Many peoplejhaye given'" substantially, many people havei.'giyen.a littlej-too^many people -have contributed nothing.: "The: innumerable workers in the drive"Have:-.given of both their time and _ .their money... '. • The;, attainment- of this goal is important not 1 only to the -individual agencies involved, but also to the general self-respect of this community. ; . If you have not yet made your contribution— ; it is not too late to do : so. Contact the United - Fund office 'andmake your pledge now, so that 'the drive can be,successfully completed. GEORGE E. SOKOLSKY li Our Stand Is Well .Known' The State. Department obviously needs reorganization. Its" system of indirect policy-making at • low Jewels has resulted in too • many significant 'errors,"-. par-, ticularly as regards-..China", In, doncsia, Cuba, and the Congo. The lower- levels consist of; deskmen who are presumed-to'be' experts and they probably are expert. In a word, they, are technicians. The .essential 'difference between' a technician and a guiding personality MS mat the latter adds'to technical, knowledge,; experience, wisdom,- ima-. gination, flair. '' '. THOSE WHO represent the State Department to the .public and to Congress,. that is, the secretary of State.and the under; secretaries, • are • often >not . as technically informed as the assistant secretaries and the deskmen, but .they, are responsible for.; .policy. "When -policy' is r made at the lower levels, the decisions . are bound to be troublesome because they are .often, not correlated with 'other policies of."gov-. ernmerit and sometimes represent .the private,.and biased views of -immature deskmen.; 'Many competent men have, at various .times, suggested a re-. organization' of the State ".Department. The. most serious effort to,be'made in :recent'years was when "Herbert Hoover, Jr., was under secretary, but he found himself in difficulties because of _ civil 'service arrangements which amount to tenure. This makes it very difficult "to get rid of useless, incompetent or • even disturbing personnel. FORMER GOVERNOR Averell Harriman has now come up with an interesting 'suggestion. He would give status -to "the men in charge of the regional divisions. Let me put it in his words: "I . . . propose that the status of the men in charge of the five regional divisions of the State Department be elevated to attract men of outstanding position and experience.
