College Shows Interest In the 'Uncommon' Man A newspaper's mail is usually of the large, economy-sized variety and, Racily, is usually about 9!).<1<) per cent impure. Thus it WHS with a measure of Bin-prise that we recently found Fm uncommon dispatch tuekeil between the usual wastebasket material. In a mere 800 words, South western «t Memphis IIHS set about to tcli just what a college education means ... at Southwestern, of course. Without lak- ing the position of rendering a blanket endorsement of South western, we do think that many of Ihe ideas set forth in this tract are worthy of examination. With « nod to schools which can boast colorful football teams, acres of magnificent buildings and an activity- crammed social life, this piece goes on to say that "once students picked their college because of the teachers \v h o taught there . . . "Paul walked from Tarsus clown to Jerusalem to sit in the classes of Gamaliel, Thomas Aquinas walked all the way from Southern Italy up to Paris to hear lectures by Albert the Great and John Calvin plodded from city to city over France in hear one groat teacher after another. "Once students chose their college because of the adventure in ideas which it held for them." What's more, it continues, Southwestern believes there are enough ski-, dents left seeking the "intellectual excitement that conies from the search for truth that the College will have the kind of students it can best serve." More important, it makes this point: Only through gain of intellectual stature can a person hope to be an extraordinary individual. The need for extraordinary people is making itself known to us ouch day through the headlines. "In a century dominated i>y the idea of the common man, Southwestern is interested in producing 'uncommon' men and women ..." How much bettor, wo can't help lml wonder, would the world and America be today if fewer "common" men and more '•uncommon" men had been standing at the helms of the ships of state. Treaty Ratification May Be Congress Legislative: Peak The Senate's thumping 66 to 10 rat. ification of the Japanese Peace Treaty represents t h e "greatest deliberative body in the world 1 ' in one of its more enlightened moods. These have noi been too freijuent in recent times. The treaty with Japan, already approved by five other countries, is a new departure in peace pacts. U is not vindicative and punitive. It Is designed to promote among the Japanese a wholesome growth of democracy, a sound, self-sustaining economy and a friendly partnership with the free nations in the battle against communixm. Unquestionably the pact is not perfect, Jt represents the range of agreement that was possible among all the peace-making powers. No country will be wholly satisfied. If any were, the others would be dissatisfied. J'int lln'.s treaty was ably conceived and hammered out. JIany tributes have already been paid to the principal architect, John Foster Dulles. Final congratulations arc now in order. Dulles is a Republican, but a number of GOP senators were not by this fact shaken oul of their ciislom.iry opposition to American foreign commitments of whatever sort. And they were joined by Democratic Senator Ak'Carran of Nevada, who also finds il necessary to be against things that involve other governments. Nevertheless, the majority in both parlies hacked the treaty, and all efforts to attach crippling reservations or postpone action were beaten. It was widely recognized that this pact would do more to introduce elements of stability in the Far liasl than anything Hint has appeared on the scene since World War II ended. This is the first major treaty to he adopted without the participation of our erstwhile Russian allies. It is an indication that we need not wait forever to attempt Ihe crealion of order in those portions of the world where our .strength is commanding. As if (o emphasise this lesson, the Senate simultaneously ratified three accompanying security accords covering the Pacific area. Two were mutual agreements between the United Stales and the Philippines, and the U. S. and Australia-New Zealand. The third is »> pact between this country and 'Japan, providing for the stationing of American troops in the Japanese islands, and otherwise reinforcing the peace treaty. The 1952 session of the 82nd Congress is unlikely to be distinguished for much bold legislation, since election necessities normally exert a taming influence upon the lawmaker. The ratifying of the Japanese treaty may well he the real high-water mark for Congress this season. fAKX.) COUNTER Views of Qthers Reading tHe Write-ins The American people are not going to let either the professional politicians or thc newspaper prophets name their presidential candidates. Minnesota Joins New Hampshire In em- uhntlcally recording ihe Independence and'the Interest of the voters. Much can happen Irefove July. Senator Tatt may score hravily in Wisconsin, Illinois, ailo Ohio. The New Jersey Republicans may prove unwilling to Mock behind Inch- leaders under the Eisenhower banner. New surprises may spring out of Nebraska and Oregon that may prove as upsetting as In 1948. Withdrawal by President Truman may reshuffle the whole Democratic setup—and reshape the whole Republican strategy. But Minnesota lias pretty well determined that one tiling will not happen—the professionals will not continue to assume ihe voter can be "told." One things this indicates is that the "machines" won't sew things up. After the amazing write-in showing of General Eisenhower in Minnesota, Republican leaders will think twice before foreclosing the opportunity to enlist Ills manifest popularity in Iheir effort to end 20 years of exile. Thc preference for Senator Tntt. so evident hitherto in the party organization, , m now take account ol thc manifest popularity of the general. On Ihe Oemoc'ratic sidr. Senator Humphrey, running irporiedty as ;\ Truman "stalking horse," easily topped thc poll. He probably collected some votes which otherwise might have been write-ins fur the President. But thc measernciss ot votra carrying 1 Mr. Truman's name—compared to the good write-in showing of Senator Kclauvcr can only nrtd to Ihe attractions of retirement. > The general scarcity of Democratic voter— remembering that the sUte has gone regularly for Roosevelt nnrt Trnman—gives that party's hiRh command something; to think about. Whrn do they start building up a new "white hope"? Democratic weakness may encourage, some Republicans to think Hint they can win with anybody.
