Left Hand Corner There are some 290 persons who have a very short time to live, says the National Saftey Council. That THE till 1350 ^-/AKfrpfELnil WAKEIFIELD, MICHIGAN fie. The figure is based on a four- day holiday period with very heavy traffic--nearly 30,000,000 automobiles on the move throughout the nation. Will you be one of them? _ _... A , "Never before in America has official conscience fallen so low, or official impudence grown so rash, or publlif apathy seemed more profound," declares Fulton Oursler in The Reader's Digest for June. The^ greatest danger to our democracy today is not from Russia, Oursler believes, but from ourselves, frowi our growing disregard of principles and our reliance on expediency. In a world situation of the greatest seriousness, moi?al lassitude seems constantly to deepen. Democrats and Republicans alike have led us -into a "twilight of dishonor." This decline in national character threatens the loss of our standards and, as a consequence, the loss of liberty through abuses, corruption" and chaos. In the face of the most widespread flouting of traditional concepts of honor in our history, Americans are finding it increasingly difficult to be shocked, Oursler charges. Instead of resisting 1 breaches of public morality we tend more and more to condone them. "That's politics," we say, as if politics need always be a sinkhole. The people are even finding something to admire in the slackness and deceitfulness by which taxpayers are bilked. They smile at scoundrels in office as if they were only amusing scalawags. Today's curse upon political life is not so much what is unlawful as what is unscrupulous, Oursler states. Unlawful acts can be punished by the courts, but only public opinion can deal with dishonor. "Broken promises are not illegal, they are simply faithless and dishonorable. But even lip service to a code of honor now excites open derision."
