All people and a" nations want peace but many do not choose ways of peace. Parking Meters Blytheville is following in Hie footsteps of many other cities by looking to parking meters as a solution of vexing parking problems. Some cities luive used the coin-operated devices and consider the results satisfactory. Other cities have waged bitter battles over the installation of meters. Other cities have, handled the overtime parking problem satisfactorily with consistent checking by law enforcement officers. Parking meters cannot be operated with fairness to those who drop their coins in the slot without follow- up by law enforcement officers to bring the violators into court to account for their failure to move on or pay for the privilege of staying. Voters in Blytheville are to have the privilege of approving, or rejecting the proposal that meters be installed. The installation will be expensive, and iince the motorist is lo pay the bill, as usual, perhaps he should ask of his city officials if the prohibitions against parking will be enforced and police provided to make daily checks to round up the violators. Unless this is done, and the policy followed persistently, the parking problem will remain and along with it the taxpayers who pay will have a rat hole in which to drop their nickels. There has been no effort here. In handle the parking problem by designating time limits for parking and then rounding up those who overstay the free-period. This method pays its own way in cities where it operates successfully and it is only the violators that pay for monopolizing the parking places nearest to the stores where they shop. Blytheville merchants are entitled to a solution of Hie parking problem, and Blytheville citizens and those from the whole Blytheville trade area are entitled to a better parking deal when they come here to spend their money. Let's hope that the referendum called for by Monday night's ordinance passed by the city council will lead to a solution—one that is just for the motorist who obeys the law. Europeans and Asiatics know that both (lit quality aiid the rhythm of their lives depend upon decisions made In Washington. On the wisdom of those decisions hangs the fate of the next generation. / The ie«ponslbl!ty cannot be evaded—though men may look with'wistful desperation back U> simpler days that did not, can lor sticn daring Investments In the future of the world. The atomic scientists leave us in no doubt tiiat even a giant garrison state—armed to the teeth, Industry hidden underground, Its democracy 'burled _«vcn deeper—would enjoy no absolute military security. YeC If Americans reject the Illusion of armed isolation, they cannot, on the other hand, take up the cry of Manifest Destiny, with it* Imperialistic overtones. That could Wo easily substitute domination for leadership, losing friends instead of winning them. Even a colossus striding across the world cannot alford to trample on the interests and aspirations of those who can put up a rival colossus it driven to despair. The realistic alternative lo isolationism Is not ^nperialtsm, an armed Pax Americana. It is a revived and progressive world democracy And this is possible only If Americans are willing to invest in It. In concrete terms, this means that within (he next three months (which sober aludcnl of world afiatr.s has called the most, critical in history) Americans must. Hike the steps that will help to set the broken-down machinery of western Europe going again. This lakes faith, as all large-scale Investment docs. Americans hnvc had faith in America; now they are called on lo have tatlh in man. They arc called on lo rccosni/ce democracy beyond I heir own borders, speaking other tongues and using other methods, but striving painfully toward the same goal—the freedom and dignity of man. There is more to it even than this. At another crisis of American history Lincoln said sadly: We have grown in numbers, wealth, and power as no other nation has ever grown; but we have forgotten God. We have forgotten the gracious hand which preserved us in peace, and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us; and we have vainly Imagined, in Ihe deccitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and v-.riue of our own.. Humility is the all-important, essential In the decisions Americans are called on lo make. Armed with a humble faith that the same power which has moved them to struggle for the blessings of democracy is at work in hearts of their fellow men abroad, they understand that they are not sole owners senior partners in world democracy. Recognizing Ihis. they can take a position ot moral leadership in the community of sell-respecting democratic nations. Without bribery or lorce. they can point Ihe way to a generous co-operation which can stand as a model for all time lo come. —CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MON1TOII. A Baby Sitter's Life Is Not a Happy One VIEWS OF OTHERS Net Profit We see where a lad of 23, accused of marrying eight women in five years, had 19 cents to his name when the police finally caught up with him. With this yc;ir's prices and any year's wives what they arc, any man who has even 19 cents after eight wives have gone through his pockets is no mere bigamist. He's a financial genius. The Year of Decision Every year is a year of decision. But tor Americans 1948 is a year of decision in » pro- Joundly special -way.
