Be true to your own mind and coBKlence; to only c»n you he true to God.- Theodore Parker. Prize Whopper of the New Year • A Communist official has told R New York court that the American Communist Party is not affiliated with the party in Russia, and his no "subversive aims, aspirations, objects, pro- grami or activities." Further, it does not advocate overthrow of the govern• went, or seek to "abolish or prohibit religious worship, the family; or to bring about the dictatorship of a proletariat by the use of force or violence." If we believed that we'd certainly advise the native comrades to change their misleading name. For they usually profess to follow the teachings of Karl Marx, who inspired and blueprinted communism. And Marx happened to preach all of the things that the American party has just disavowed. Why Not Let Ike Alone? no statement regarding tiie New Hampshire primaries (in which Risen- hower-plcdged delegates will be entered)." They kicked that one.around for a while. Then Mr. Andrews tried to get to the General again, and wound up trying to get the public relations officer to pin the General down with a "clarifying statement" for the American people. The Herald Tribune's editorial point was that the General's job makes him vulnerable, and that "General Eisenhower has deserved too well of the country to have this vulnerability used to his discredit. . . In justice to a good soldier he should be permitted to make his own decisions when lie chooses to do so." We would simply like to say Amen to tfiat. VIEWS OF OTHERS W« will now ask the famous doK- biting-man to move over and make room for another entry in the definition-of-news contest. The new contestant is the New York Herald Tribune, which inferentially look itself to task in an editorial the other day for a story that ran on page one of the same edition. We can't recall another instance where a paper has, in effect, expressed disapproval of one of its stories on the same day it appeared. Come to think of it, though, maybe the Herald Tribune was acting sensibly and courageously. Perhaps the reaiier will agree. The story in question was by Bert Andrews, head of the Herald Tribune's Washington bureau, and an exceedingly able and industrious reporter. The subject of his piece was General Eisenhower: will he or won't he run? Now, the General's possible candidacy for President is legitimate news. It is of great interest and importance, since some polls show that he is the front runner in the presidential sweepstakes at present, even though he is not running. Yet his behavior seems unassailingly right. As Army Chief of Staff, he is one of the main custodians of the country's defense. His job is outside politics. So he shouldn't be—and isn't—doing anything to align himself with parties or partisan issues. His position ought to lie clear to anybody. Eager as people may bc to know his intentions, they should realize that liis present job conies first and should let him do that job. Yet politicians and reporters aiul others keep pestering and needling him and trying to back him into a corner where he will have to commit himself. His every word on the subject of his possible candidacy is weighed, measured, and examined in all possible lights. Mr. Andrews is only one of many Washington reporters who have been following the Eisenhower story like bird clogs. Mr. Andrews' piece told how he and • other reporters and Senator Tohey of New Hampshire had got wind of a rumor that General Eisenhower was going to take himself out of the running. They routed out the General, who was in bed with a cold, and got from him. a restatement that he wasn't interested in politics. Then they seized on an Army public relations officer's announcement that "General Eisenhower will make Certainly Not on the Grounds of Incompatibility That Kansas Dismissal Dismissal In Kansas oi Southwestern Bell's petition for a 20 pet 1 cent rale increase was on a point which Ls largely procedural and It leaves the door open for further consideration ol the application. Nonetheless, tile action Is slgnlil- cant. Certainly it has special Interest for Mis- Kourlans before whose utility regulating body the same company ow has pending a rale In- creaso proposal. The Kansns dismissal reflects an established public policy of,the stnte, written Into Its law- books. The policy U that » utility must bear the full burden of achieving a rate increase. Thus, a utility 1« required to pay the cosUs oJ the state's investigation of a rate Increase schedule, special counsel fees for the state aad BO on. Similarly, Kansas requires a utility to Itemize the jervlces on which the requested increase In rat«» Is based. When the Kansas Corporation Commission, counterpart of the Missouri Public Service Commission, read the Southwestern Bell petition It did not find » detailed statement of the services and materials furnished to Southwestern Bell by the parent A.T.&T. and the Western Electric, equipment manufacturing Miusldiary of the hold- Ing company. So, without taking time to hear the state's argument against the petition, Chairman Jell Robertson ami hts fellow commissioners, De Witt M. Stiles and diaries Warren, sustained a motion to dismiss. It caught the lawyers for the telephone company flatfootcd. The most Southwestern Bell lias done to explain Its predicament Is to criticize the statute as unreasonable. According to the company, strict compliance would mean listing of more than 100,000 items purchased from Western Electric and proof that each individual insulator bought from that company met the cost requirements of the law, 'The telephone company hns 10 days In which to decide it* next step. Followers of the case In Topeka expect that it will first ask for a rehearing by the commission. If this rehearing is denied, the probable second move would be to go Into the Slmwuec County Court, Judicial body for Kansas state capital litigation. There southwestern Bell might ask the court /to enjoin the commission from prohibiting tile company from installing its proposed rate increase. Should any one of three judges of the Shawnce County Court so enjoin the commission, th« new rales would go into effect. This however, would bc under bond and if the rates were not finally sustained, the bond would as- surt repayment of the increased rates to telephone users. Thus in. Kansas, eyes are turned to the Shawnee County Court. The three judges take cases by lot and the public has no way of knowing which one might handle an injunction application by the telephone company. Should the County court Issue an Injunction against the Corporation Commission, the State Petrillo, It Appears, Once Said 'Unions Will Ruin Country' Sunday School Lesson • By Harraan W.
