Senseless Vandalism At New High School Vandalism is one of the vexations which has beset mankind for untold years, and Blytheville now is faced with this problem in connection with its new • high school. School officials have reported that on more than one occasion vandals have selected this city's new $351,000 school building as the object of their senseless wrecking desires. On one occasion, Vandals smashed windows in the auditorium. On another, they used an ordinary fly spray to squirt an oily substance over several walls. We wonder what earthly satisfaction they received from these acts. Vandalism can be explained by the psychologist, perhaps, hut never can it he justified. It is as much a crime as burglary or daylight robbery. And it is all the more disgusting bjecause there is no conceivable reason for it other than pure meanness coupled with an absolute lack of intelligence. Vandalism also is compounded largely of sheer cowardice. It is a shabby means of retribution employed by those who lack the intelligence to go about voicing any objections they have in a coherent manner. In every person, there is R submerged streak of riestrucliveness. Part of life as a social being, however, involves keeping this and other lesser human traits submerged. When men lose the ability to control certain nnti-sncinl inclinations, they revert to the animal level. It is difficult to conceive of a vandal as anything but a person deserving of incarceration in an institution, either penal or mental. From the law enforcement standpoint, vandalism is an irksome proposition because solution is difficult. It al- most involves catching the culprit in the act. Whether protection of our new high school will necessitate employment nf a night watchman is not certain. When use of the new building begins in September, the vandals may desist since many are attracted primarily by unoccupied buildings in which the chance of apprehension is less. \Vhatever the solution is. the public should give it full support and cooperation. That's a $351,0(10 building. And you paid for it, Mr. Tax-payer. war ft choosing our Presidents. Some people want to abolish the electoral college, some want-to abolish tha national conventions, some would do sway with both. Roscoe Drummond, writing in The Christian Science Monitor, presents still a third idea, and it deserves attention. He points out that as things now Stand only 16 of the '18 states have presidential preferential primaries. Which means that about BO million cili- zens have no direct voice at all in choosing their parties' presidential nominees. That, in turn, means that a minority of slates and a minority of voters have an undeservedly big voice in the nominations. That's because of the psychological influence which attaches to this relatively small slice of voters and states as bciing the best available cross section of opinion. So what Di'ummond and others advocate is a national advisory presidential primary, with all stales p;u'tici|Kit- ing and all eligible voters represented. That sort of .a primary set-up would certainly leave the national conventions in no doubt whatsoever as to what candidates the voters favored. As things are, doubt seems to be what there's tlie most of. Drummond questions, for instance, whether Kisenhower would have beaten Tafl in a national Republican primary. He's also not sure that Stevenson would have won out over Kefativ'er in a contest determined entirely by all Democratic voters. "All I am saying and all that the advocates of a national presidential primary are saying," Drummond writes, "is: "That the voters of both parties — who are the real owners of our political parties, not the professional politicians —deserve to have an orderly, authoritative, available opportunity to register whom they want their party to nominate. "That this is a right, not a privilege, and that, if the political professionals continue to deny this right they soon are going to get into trouble with the voters." Drummond believes national primaries should be only advisory, to begin with, until they have proved their worth. It migl\t turn out, for instance, that not enough people would vote in such primaries to give them authority and real representativeness. Perhaps Congress, should go outside its own halls and "sSect a commission to mnke\an impartial survey on the problem. Already, despite the urging of 53 Democratic congressmen to sponsor a nations! primary, the move was blocked by some of the older professional politicians on the Resolutions Committee. But the Democrats have recognized the existence of the problem. In fact they said this about it in their national platform: "We recommend that Congress provide for a non-partisan study of possible improvements in the methods of nominating and electing Presidents and in the laws relating to the presidential succession. Special attention should be given to the problem of assuring the widest possible public participation in presidential nominations." Views of Others Well, Well, Fancy Meeting You Here!
