But they forecast the results of the last two elections with remarkable accuracy, and so have become politic!)) barometers that cannot wisely be ignored. It was surprising, then, that He- publican Party leaders paid so little attention to General Eisenhower before he took himself out of the running. According to the polls, the general could have beaten Mr. Truman about as easily as the polls show that Mr. Truman could beat Senator Taft. The same polls show Governor Oewey a stronger contender than Mr. Taft, but slightly less than an even-money bet, at present, to unseat the incumbent. We don't say that party leaders could have persuaded General Eisenhower to seek the nomination, or that their coolness had anything to do with his decision not to seek it. Still it seems evident that Republican organization leaders, wanting desperately to elect a president after 16 years out of power, looked with disfavor on their strongest potential candidate. It is right and proper that there should be brisk competition for the GOP nomination. It is natural that many organization workers ale loyal (o the candidates whom they know and admire. But it is hard to understand how virtually all the party potentates could ignore this popular enthusiasm that was clearly genuine and spontaneous. Some of the possible reasons for their coolness are these: The politicians didn't know the general very well. They didn't know hjg specific position on many important issues. They weren't even SU re he was , « Republican, or wanted to be one. And apparently they didn't ask. Some of them probably were afraid of a military man as a candidate. Others probably thought that they could win with almost anyone, and so prefered that that anyone should be a predictable amenable, professional politician. Maybe some remembered their dif f'calHes «'itl, another -people's choice," Wendell Willkie, In 1 3J0 . Mr. Willkle had some amateur habits that distressed the politicians.

Eisenhower hai promised The People and Their Elections Members of Ihe- Arkndclphia Junior chamber of Commerce have taken a lone, hard look at politics in Ihelr comity, ami llirjr don't like what they see. Elections there, they ilnd, are rhnr- aclcrizcd by "gross carelessness and ncKllBr-ncc," so much so that the public well are is threatened. The Jnycccs charge, Unit in a recent Clark county election poll tax receipts were Usually Issued, properly qualified election judges were not pnn'iccd, rn:d in general "neither t!ic letter nor the spirit" of the election laws was observed. And these practices, they further charge, are hallowed by long nsuge. Nobody who is familiar with Arkansas politics could believe that the conditions cited by the Arkadclphia Jaycces are peculiar to Clark county. They c;ui be found, in some decree, In virtually every county In the slulc. And they are. aa the Jaycecs logically observe, thr basis of machine rule wherever it exists. Significantly, the Arkadclphta Juycccs charged no Clark county official with criminal intent, nor did they heap calumny upon the heads ol ihose professional politicians who ijavo uken advantage of the situation. They placed the heaviest share of blame upon the public at large, the apathetic citizens wlio sat idly by while the elective process was weakened through neglect. And, as citizens themselves, they proposed to do something about it. They pledged themselves to bring [nil publicity to bear upon any irregularity that comes to their attention, and also announced that they stand ready to serve as election officials at any [wiling places where they are eligible. This seems to us an effective means of com- batting- the besetting evil or Arkansas politics— the public attitude which accepts malpractice as an Inevitable part ol the game, certain reforms In the elective machinery are In order, but most ol all «-e need to niaVe up our minds that our clccions can and must be clean and honest.
