"Here," he said, "where every citizen meets and deals with the governmental process daily and directly, lies the 'hope and future of democracy." Tht president's words are as important today as at any time in the history v of America, the cradle of democracy. They are perhaps more important than ever before for America it, the bulwark of democracy and some students of world history are fearful for the future of democracy here and • ..elsewhere in the world where it is struggling for existence. General Eisenhower months ago said that democracy in America will face during the next decade or two its most, severe test. The attitude of such national lenders as President Truman and General Eisenhower and scores of others, who could be named, gives rise to the question: . , \ . '_ What ,1s the score in Blylheville and • £ other Mississippi County towns'.' ' \ v " Are citizens here alert to the issues of the ,day, to the dangers which threaten the democracy we love so » much and do so little to protect? than •xUtmet, they OM *notb«r'i toM.

Surely w« need no further proof that totalitariiini»m feeds upon distress, and we cannot forget, that totalitarianism bre«di war. We can't lit by and watch the rest of Europe drift into the Comintern's web.; 1 It, is important whom we elect President next year, and what principles he is pledged to. But that battle should be fought out on legitimate is- nues. Our children would never forgive us if, to advance the .fortunes of. a political party or a candidate for office, we procrastinate about halting that economic and moral breakdown in Europe which—if we let it proceed—as sure as shooting will end up in » third world war. Distress Breeds Totalitarianism VIEWS OF OTHERS Unused Inflation Checks There are indications that the European relief program may run into 1948 politics at the special session called by President Truman. This would be most 'unfortunate. There is a time for everything. This is. not the time for politics. President Truman says that France needs ?357 millions from us before the first of January, when Congress ordinarily would meet; Italy needs $285 'millions; the occupied countries need |500 millions. These figures may be right! or too high, or too low. We are in no position to know. "We do not ask Congress to rubber stajnp them. It is Congress' privilesra and duty to check them with care. But it ii important that Congress Should not delay. Congress should, by ~y »ow, have- moat of the 'information \ nec«ss*ry for reaching a sound del~ cuion. If the President has facts not in possession of the legislators, it is to f f be assumed that he will supply them. ••'» The important thing is that neither the President nor Congress should ,v play politics with tlm matter. The ,-. .iniportajvL thing, it action. Correct action i* very desirable, but prompt and poftitire action is essential. .A few unobservant or deliberately ' blind tourist* have returned from Europe dairying that the hunger and want there verges upon starvation and de*.• titution.

Reduction of the public debt world against monetary price Inflation. Easily and simply, our government could serve notice on the world that there 1* to be no tampering with llle American currency. Tins could be done by repealing the statutory authority by which the 1 . Treasury head, with the President's approval, may buy gold at any price they choose to offer. This gold-purchasing authority, surviving from thc bad fiscal legislation of the early 1930s. i» probably the caus* ol recurrent rumors that tht dollar is again to be devalued in terms of gold. A gold buying jpree of the Treasury preceded the devaluation of 1934. Some of our monetary authorities, Including the Federal Reserve Board, are concerned about the danger of excessive bank lending. If ther§ is such « danger, why -not repeal the bank law amendment which in June, 1945, reduced the required gold cover for Federal Reserve note issues and reserve deposits of member banks to 25 per cent? Why not return to the 40 per cent coverage of notes and 35 per cent for reserve 'deposits which were previously in eftect? As last reported trie gold coverage stood *t 48.1 per cent of combined notes and reserves. Neither of these expedients would radically affect present practices. The Treasury Is not paying more than 435 a fine ounce for gold and Is not likely to do so. But repeal of tht* poten- ttalily dangerous authority would significantly affirm the government's rejection of currency juggling as a means of relieving the world's alleged dollar shortage.
