Road Improvements Nice , But Safety Still Up to Us Those who have occasion to make . the Osceola-Wilson "rtni" on crumbling U.S. Highway 61 will welcome HS good news the fact that the Highway Department is planning lo rebuild that particular stretch. Thus, the county has taken another step toward elimination of a traffic hazard. Other projects which will make i our highways safer include the Krutx I Bridge straightening on 61, north', and the new bridge across Big Lake. But even four-lane super-highways would he no safer than the people trav- elling them. This county's accident rate, while not particularly above the national . or state average, still is too high. And we can't expect the crowded conditions existing on our highways to ease off. The county's farmers are turning toward mechanization as rapidly as they can. This fact, though it reflects progress, means that more and more farm vehicles will be using the highways. Therefore, it is well that the county press for highway improvements, but it is also necessary for us to educate ourselves and our children to the grim fact that an automobile in the hands of a drunken or irresponsible person is every bit as deadly as a gun. felt by professional politicians mid delegate candidates in the. many states which have no primaries hut choose delegates in stale conventions. Where these mon are sitting on the feiJce or are wavering in this support of other candidates, the pull toward the general's candidacy will now be strong. Eisenhower has demonstrated — under handicaps that did not exist in New Hampshire — that his appeal to th« American voter is real. The handicaps were considerable. The national Kisenliower loaders declined to enter the genera] in the Minnesota race. Local adherents, well-meaning but inexperienced amateurs, nevertheless plowed ahead and filed delegates for Eisenhower. The campaign they began was not notable for professional competence. And shortly their greenness seemed to be Iheit undoing. Faulty filing petitions forced Ike's name off the ballot and'left his energetic backers hanging in air. An opportunity to give the Eisenhower candidacy momentum apparently vanished. Just six days before the primary, Eisenhower leaders gave serious thought to a write-in drive. But not until the slate attorney-general ruled four days before I he voting that write-ins would be counted did the campaign really get going. iMinnosoliiiis in the general's camp arc right in labeling what followed a "political miracle." No expert would have forecast in a hundred years that such a vote could be spurred in four days' time. Perhaps the answer is that Eisenhower's supporters among-the people needed to know only that they could do it. The urging may have been superfluous, except as a reminder of their opportunity. In any event, the opportunity was seized. Should Eisenhower win the Republican nomination in July, the politi- . cal savnnls may look back to a wintry March day in Minnesota for the moment when things realty started to happen.

James A. Brown President Cooter Lions Club Minnesota Landsl ide for Ike Could Become Avalanche When some 110,000 voters got to the polls and bothered to write in the n:inic of a man who is not on the linllot, Oat is reasonalily convincing evidence of K*-'inii' c popular interest in the candidate thus honored. General Kisc'iihowcr's tremendous v.rite-in showing in the Minnesota presidential primary must in all fairness be interpreted in this light. Any effort to minimize or deprecate this astonishing performance can only appear foolish. The Minnesota result has several remarkable aspects. It placed Eisenhower not much more than 20,000 votes behind Harold E. Stamen, three-time governor of the stale and widely hailed as its "favorite son." Since the inherent difficulties of the write-in process repel many voters, a write-in total is never viewed as the full measure of a candidate's strength. Had Kisenhower been on the Minnesota ballot, he might have beaten Stassen and won from half to a substantial majority of the state's US GOP convention delegates. As it is, Eisenhower has won no delegates in Minnesota. Hut he has undeniably given his presidential candidacy a great psychological boost. The repercussions of this event will be felt in every remaining primary.

They argue: Kefiuiver won the New Hampshire primary. So what? Sen. Hubert Humphrey won the Minnesota Democratic primary. Sen. Bob Kerr of Oklahoma will win in Nebraska. Senator Russell of Georgia will win in most of the Southern states. Other favorite sons may win In primaries in other slates. But none of them can win enough delegates to assure capture of the nomination. By playing oil all these hopefuls against each other, Truman leaves him- I'cler Edson se]f ns tnc "compromise" candidate behind whom they might have to unite. The real threat to this theory would come if two or more of the favorite sons should unite forces in a deal to unseal the President. The R\]5Scll-Kcfauver fight for Florida's 24 delegates to the Demo Truman. In 1944 the state's 14 delegates supported Senator Byrd of Virginia at the outset, then supported Roosevelt by acclamation. In the three previous conventions the Florida delegation supported Roosevelt. In 1928 Florida started out with 12 votes for McAdoo. In spite ol the 103 ballots, Florida never gave more than three votes to the winner, Gov. Al Smith. That was the year that Florida broke out of the Democratic ranks and voted for Hoover, 144,000 to Smith's 101,000, But, In 1948 Florida was 281,000 lor Trumnn. 194.000 for Dewey. • * * (•RESIDENT TRUMAN has made no political speaking dates for the summer, and has announced no plans for a barnstorming tour across the country. Democratic headquarters nevertheless says it's straight dope that the Presidcn will take an active part In campaigning against both Democratic and Republican senators and congressmen who have consistently fought his "Fair Deal" program. As far as Republican victims of this intended "purge" are concerned, they'll probably welcome Truman opposition in their states and districts as a sure boost for victory. CONCERNING GEORGIA Sen. Whom Else Does It Fit? For some years the American businessman has been hautHcd by a feeling that, -somehow, he has lost the leadership in community and national affairs. To the onlooker, "lost" seems too itronR a word. By and large, the solid merchant and banker still make up the core of community leadership and t h e backbone of commissions and agencies set up to meet national emergencies. Yet. even if the business community is unduly pessimistic on this point, there is some reason for its feeling that iUs leadership is not where it once was. Why, and what to do about it we would rather leave to a bu,siue6;>inan, And a very eminent one has hart something very interesting to say about it. He is Clarence B. Randall, president of Ihe Inland Steel Company, and he writes in a recent Atlantic Monthly. We may be world masters at production, says Mr. Randall lo his colleagues. But "who among us." he asks, "is superintendent of R Sunday School or working in some other character-forming agency? Who is taking the active part he should in the clay-to-day political life of his country?" It takes more than just success in busiticss to command the confidence of the whole community. Do we read, do \\ * t h ing ? he asks. Do we talk about free enterprise and against government controls and yel do things ourselves which frustrate the free market? Do we decry government-subsidized education or do we support prl- vtyt rly-conducted education ourselves? Do we denounce the less-than-per fee I handling ot world problems without understanding those problems? Do we invite s-ocialization by pressing our advantages to the hurt of the common welfare? -The free enterprise system Is not just a hunting license. . . -" In other words, do we practice the sincerity we speak? These are the liarsh questions that only An insider has a clear right to ask. But why limit (hem to the business community?

TOM Connally of Texas, who used to be considered just salty or amusingly sarcastic, is rapidly gaining the reputation of being one of the most crotchety men in town. The change'began to be noticeable last summer when the senior Texas senator was .calling the roll of a committee at the MacArthur investigations. When he called, "Kefauver" and got no answer, Connally commented. "Oh, he's out; catching the crap-shooters." Intended as a wisecrack, some people thought it disrespectful and Connally had to apologize. Recenty, Connally brought down the wrath of the Hawaiians by say- Ing the natives were not of American descent; He has accused Senator Taft of "trying to buy a few slimy votes in Texas."

He dis carded the jack of .spades, refusing to over-ruff. Unfortunately for the defenders, West thought about his problem a little too obviously. It was clear to South that West could have over-ruffed but had decided not to do so. South did some thinking of his own, and came up with the correct impression that West had all of the missing trumps. South therefore abandoned the clubs in order to cash the king and ace of hearts. He continued with a ow heart, ruffing with dummy's four oC diamonds. East's failure to over-ruff confirmed South's impression.
