America Should Be Saved Scare-Campaigning The other day Averell Harrtman, In a bit of post-GOP convention politicking, raised the specter of depression aa a likely thing if General Eisenhower should be elected nex;t fall. The country will be well served if Ihftl argument is never made again. To he sure, it is an old refrain, and the Democrats have been chanting; it since 1032. But 'politics by fear is not good politics—at any rate, not good for the American citizenry. Actually, campaigning of this sort fails into the category • of desperation. It seems to say: "1C you can't think of any other effective, arguments, scare 'em to death." The Republican Party is not the party of economic depression, any more than the Democratic Party is the party of \var, though the regimes of each have corresponded with those two great catastrophies in the last 20 years. No responsible Democrat ever blames former President Hoover for the 1930 depression any more, though many naturally insist emphatically that he did not meet that crisis well. No sober-minded Republican blames • the Democrats for Ihe rise of Hitler, and for the war he launched upon the world. To charge any American political party with seeking to thrust us into war is to lunge toward the extremes of irresponsibility. Haven't \ve had enough of scare- campaigning? No one familiar with our traditions expects our political candidates to make their appeals wholly calm and rational. Emotion and exaggeration are inevitably a part of campaign exhortations in this country. But to hold out the prospect of economic or military ruin as the alternative to the triumph of one candidate or the other is unforgivable domngoguery. Nobody but a fanatic would consciously strive to plunge this nation into any kind of disaster. Bolh major parties, it goes without saying, are clearly wedded to policies they believe serve the welfare of the United Slates. We may argue—we should argue— long and loud which party's policies will really do the job best in the four years ahead. But let no candidate argue that his defeat spells for Americans either death on the battlefield or shivering in a bread line. America has survived weak presidents in both parties. It needs no saviors. Indeed, it ought to be saved from any man who sees himself as the only barrier to military or economic ruin. Slogan Boomerangs Supporting the Chinese Communists' "big lie" propaganda that the Allies used germ warfare in Korea, French Reds are going all o'ut against Gen. Matthew Ridgway, General Kisonhower's Buccessor as Supreme Commander of NATO forces in Europe. They call him "General Plague" and parade with placards saying "Ridgway Go Home." The latter slogan, at least, will have little more effect on many Parisians than to produce a laugh. For it will remind them of the gag of the year, which currently has Paris chuckling. One of the Reds' favorite stunts is to go out at night and paint, in foot-high letters, the slogan "Americans Go Home" on sidewalks or t h e walls of buildings. To one of these, recently, some WIIK added: "Via Pail-American Airways." It was a good gag, and everyone who hears it immediately hursts into laughter—unless he's a Commie, of course. But it really has a significance deeper than a superficial expression of Gallic or American wit. For one thing, it uses the Commies' own anti-American propaganda to give an enterprise of the hated Americans invaluable word-of-mouth advertising as the joke spreads far and wide. Hut even more important, it punctures a favorite Red slogan. For you may be certain that no one who has heard the "via Pan-American" joke can ever again see the line "Americans Go Home" without laughing. Views of Others Elementary Lessons The convention was speechdrunk. Too many cliches had pounded the delegates' protesting eardrums In the endless afternoon. Rep. Walter Judd of Minnesota was called upon to s}M-ak. He spoke of our blunders on Asia. No man in Congress knows more about Asia that Mr. Jurirt. He spoke, loo. of our homegrown political blunders. He pulled no punches, gave both parties full measure of criticism. ' To put the Soviet aim In terms of a Baseball game, said Mr. Judd. consider that Russia haa come to bat and has gotten a hit. First base, he said, Is China. Second base la oil Asia. Third base Is Europe. And home plate Is our United states. The Russians he inlri, have never made It a. secret that they Intend to circle an. A moment later, Mr. Judd stood back while Chairman Joe Martm for the 30th time that day appealed for order. When he resumed, Mr: Judd apologized to his listeners. - ; " . He said he knew he was being elementary and possibly dull. "But may I remind you." he added, "that the Republican Party lost an election In 11)48 because II failed to drive home to the public just a few elementary facts." "It could," said Mr. jiirtd, "happen again." —Knoxville tTenn.) News-Sentinel The South's Spirit Industrialists, publicists and politicians in New England and other Eastern and Northern regions have had much to say about lower wages, free httes and taxation advantages as means used to draw mills and factories to the South. But Jack Barry, director of personnel for the great American Wooley Company, told a Chamber of Commerce meeting at Plymouth, Mass., that "the South lias no secret weapon except Its spirit." We don't agree with this textile officials further statement that thrre arc no natural advantages in Southern locations thai are Impossible for New England to meet and match. On account of climatic conditions In the South there ar« lower fuel and lighting costs for the people who work m mills and many regions have abundant natural gas for industrial use or comparatively cheap electric pou-er. But the South should thank this New Eng- lauder for his tribute to the South's spirit, It should give this great region of America new Inspiration and new confidence. —Little Rock (Ark.)

It Is divided roughly as 7.S Eisenhower Republicans and 63 Tall Republicans, for. lack of better classifications. This count may not bo absolutely accurate. It was not made on the basis of an actual poll of tho National Committee members. It represents a check ou their known sympathies and the voting record of their state delegations In the recent Chicago convention. The old National Committee wns made up of two members—a man and a woman—from each of the 48 states, the District of Columbia and the four territories—Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico and Virgin Islands.
