FACE TWO m.YTITKVTLT.K (ARK.)' roUKIRR NEWS MfWDAY, "AUGUST 8, 195S Taft,OftenOpposed,WasHealthy Ckmchiirs Visit with Force in a Democratic Society Raises Speculation on Future WASHINGTON (AP) — Anyone who evor sat in Hie Senate gallery and watched SIM). Taft at work—and it ..made no diiffevpnce whether yon agreed with li'im-could not but think: "The people whose views he represents are lucky to have him fighting for them." In his 15 Senate years no one worked hnrdcr or more earnestly there, for what he tie- lieved than the Ohio Republican. And what Taft believed represenicd the views of many millions of people. Not necessarily always the same people. But always many millions on any issue.

He was a healthy force in a Democratic society which, if it Is to survive and escape tyranny, must depend upon the vigorous airing of opposing views in order to arrive flt inlellieenl majority decisions and. when necessary, reasonable compromises. Hlflily Respected But while it seems impossible that anyone could dispute his energy or his earnestness, | can be no such unanimity on his judgment.

And what would have been the i result for this country and the j world If Congress had listened lo j Taft one year later nnd killed the j draft just four months before Pearl Harbor? Denied Isolationism Taft sternly denied he was an Isolationist But /he effect of some of his views, ir they had prevailed, would have been to isolate, this country far more than it is now. For one thinp;. he opposed t he legislation which made this country a member of the United Nations. He was against the Allan- tic Pact which put this country into military alliance with Western Europe against Russia. He seemed much more in tune with majority American thinking on domestic Issues. In that field he probably will be remembered longest for the Taft-Hartley Labor Relations Act which he fathered in 1947 to replace thfi old Wanner Act passed under President Roosevelt in 1935. The Wagner Act was loaded on the side of organized labor. Organized labor claims T-H is loaded on the side of the employers. Bui at least T-H guarantees employers various kinds of protection Which the Wagner Act did not. Taft knew he'd make enemies of "Union leader with T-H. And h| did. But, judpinir from his overwhelm- : 1npr re-election in Ohio in 1950, il j was an enmity which didn't hurl ' him. I In his 1ft Senate v^pfirs Taft prob- | ably expressed more opinions on : more subjects than most senators because he worked rmrri at keeping Informed.
