Jaycee Resolution Shows Trend of Economic Thought Blytheville's Junior Chamber of Commerce emerged from the annual Arkansas Jaycee meeting with several honors which reflect favorably on this city. Charles E. Moore was elected state president and W. R. Crawford was named head of the 'state "Exhausted Rooster" organization, which is for those ex-Jaycees who have passed the age limit for active Jaycee work. As usual, the club's National Cotton Picking Contest won the H. Grady Manning trophy, which goes to the chib that does the best job of publicizing Arkansas. The club also took prizes for activity in agriculture and Americanism fields. The BlytheviJle club is to be congratulated for its splendid showing in the stale-wide competition. Aside from the local angle, the convention had another phase which reflected the trend of thinking among the young men who attended. In a resolution, the group went on record as being opposed to government hand-nuts. The resolution n?ks Arkansans to stop asking Congress for appropriations which would "furlher enlarge welfare or social gain projects for the exclusive benefit of a local communily." Carrying through, the .laycees will submit this resolution to the national Jaycoe organization for action and copies will be forwarded to Arkansas' Congressional delegation. Group effort of (his typp on (he local levei will go far toward making Congressmen cost conscious (and, subsequently, tax conscious). Public Office Dignity Hurt By McGrath-Morris Affair There have been many strange interludes in Washington duriiip the past. seven years. Bui never was Ilipi-p a sorrier spectacle lhan Hip Newlmld M.irri?- J. Howard McUrath affair. Thr dimity of public office suffered drop offense in consequence, and the American people must have few regrets that these two men have now been yanked unceremoniously off the national stage. Morris. President Truman's cleanup investigator, was the lesser offender. His chief difficulty seemed to hr that he is temperamentally unsuitrd for life in today's chaotic From his own personal standpoint, maybe that is good. But. from the public's, it is not. .Morris' investigation inln corruption appeared ill-starred from the be- ginning, when charges of many sorts started flying his way the moment he was named. The motives of the senators who assailed him may not have been wholly pure. They may have wanted to discredit Morris so his inquiry would fail and the corruption issue would stay alive until election time. However that may lie, Jiorris lost his poise, and balance under this assault. He could have defended himself in a soberly mature manner that might well have shamed his critics. Instead lie [ash- ed out in H flailing counterattack that understandably aroused widespread indignation in (he Senate nnd elsewhere. Morris, plugging ahead anyway, anyway, showed marked courage; but it was not the disciplined courage of the man who has carefully ganged his adversaries and knows where and how to hit them. He quickly dissipated any chance he had of doing a good job. Attorney General Mr.Gralh is another story. He should have been ousted long ago. His cavalier, indulgent attitude toward the shenanigans of his ex- Assistant Attorney General, T, Lamar Caudle, was enough to indicate his unfit ness for high office. Nothing in McGralh's conduct of the Justice Department suggests he ever was qualified for .such duty, lip was a crony of the President's. His judicial background was almost nil. His appointment lo thai, job apparently was in keeping with the now-established system of progression by which administration favorites are elevated to the Supreme Court. Jt was absurd to hope (hot any man who would take so bland a view of Caudle's misdeeds would ever cooperate sincerely in an honest investigation of his own department and his own affairs. .When the test came to that. McGralh fell down, as ought to have been expected. Whether he has anything to hide in his personal background is now for Congress or some other investigative agency to determine. Certainly the public, will find il hard to take ill face value the professions of concern for "individual liberties" which he made his excuse for blocking Jiorris 1 inquiry. The final dismnl episode was that public squabble with Mr. Truman recently while the pair awaited Dutch Queen Juliana's arrival al Washington Airport. The Preside;)!, must of course share the blame for this, as he must for the fact that a maitof McGrath's questionable capacity for high office ever was allowed entry into his cabinet. Jiorris' investigation m a y have proved a fiasco. Eiut that rather volatile gentleman did accomplish one thing. He got rid of JlcGrath.
