An example was President Truman's recent declaration that. General Eisenhower is conducting a "gutter campaign." Mr. Truman himself is, of course, not a candidate. But that does not give him license. The word "gutter" has no place in ~> the lexicon of presidential campaigns. It represents a particularly severe lapse from good taste and fairness when applied to Eisenhower. Whether they are for the general or against him or riding the fence, Americans recognize in Eisenhower a man of basic decency, of deep sincerity and conviction, of strong religious faith, moreover, he is a genuine national hfero deserving of the country's — and Mr. Truman's — respect. The President also overstepped the mark when he imputed <to Eisenhower the condoning of anti-Semitic and anti- Catholic immigration policies,,He charged the GOP nominee with willingness to accept "the very practice that identified the so-called 'master race' (meaning the German Nazis)." For this shocking breach of decency, Mr. Truman 'was properly rebuked by Rabbi Silver, American Zionist leader. Four years ago the President's fight : ing campaign tactics were widely credited with helping mightily to re-elect him.' , ,That being so, he can't be blamed for ^trying to pour it on again in behalf,of .Governor Stevenson. But the President may learn to his chagrin that a ^low-level campaign can ' ,go - too far. To heap abuse and scorn upon a respected public figure is often '. "to engender tremendous sympathy for him. Every time he Jets drop a word like "gutter," Mr. Truman may actually be helping Eisenhower more than hurt- ^ing him. In any event, he is not help- .fatf'tbe dignity of the offic* h« hold*.

That is the foundation of his stubborn stand,' His severing of ties with Britain suggests he now understands that this itrategy will not work as applied to the British. But it suggests also that henceforth he is putting his chief reliance upon the United States. In other words,' the' Iranian premier seems convinced that America will not stand by and watch Iran sink into a financial abyss but will be compelled by the necessities of the world power struggle to rescue a tottering government. For us this poses a dilemma. We in- • deed cannot blithely . permit Iran to crumble and Russia to pick up the pieces. But neither can we move eagerly and positively to Mossadegh's aid, for in this course we would be sharply undercutting Britain's position. And Br'itain is a greater ally in the world power contest than Iran, for all its oil. FRIDAY, OCTOBEK M, 1Mb f rs/une Johnson IN HOLLYWOOD Views of Others Southern Textile Leadership How (ar Ihe textile leadership of the nailon . haa ipread to the South li emphasized In an address by William p. Sullivan, prwldent of th« National Association of Cotton Manuiacturers. Said Mr. Sullivan, a representathe of North- «rn industry; "Eighteen million spindles employing 300,000 workers in'the South will no longer accept, even in part, the leadership of four million spindles employing 50,000 workers In New England on 'compensation policy." ' Leadership properly belongs, said Mr.' Sulll- can, to "those who have the numbers, strength, and position to discharge, t^e responsibilities of the industry." The New England execull.e noted that the South first asserted leadprship' In 1950 by granting wage increases before^any New England milk took action. Any doubts as to the meaning of that action were dispelled by eVents beginning In March, 1951. At that time New England mllli granted an . increase but they had to rescind the adiance" when 80 per' cen t of the Industry In the South re- fjied to follow., As we have noted before, the South has made rapid Industrial advancement during the past few decades. No longer Is It dependent solely on agriculture. Nor Is It a Johnny-come-lately industrially, H Is taking Its place on an equal fooling with the rest of the nation - a circumstance that will become clearer as time moves •long. — Johnson City (Term ) Press-Chronicle. 'Provocation' -The communists in Norway and .other Scandinavian countries are having the propaganda time ot their Ihes shouting "warmongering" over the eight-nation muneuvers being held by the Atlantic Pact countries participating In NATO. The Norwegian Red leader declared In a speech that the exercises, simulating operations that would Uke place in the e\cnt aggression on the part qt Russia re-Quired Ihe relief of Scandinavia, a "gigantic provocation." Of course, in the Red lexicon, whether'a thing Is right or R-rotig depends on who Is doing it. The truth Is that the maneuvers v are rather close to the Baltic Seat area where the Soviets have installations and massed forces which they hope will turn the Baltic Into a .Soviet lae. The Russians have been making military and naval muscles In that ares lor years now — and have even resorted to shooting down unarmed aircraft (one American and one Swedish) which strayed too close to those; Baldc bases. Further, the Soviets have been reported to be conducting maneuvers In that area. There Is nothing that -provokes Ihe Reds r,u!le as much as do« resistance against Communist —Greenville (s. c.)

John Iceland and Dorothy Me- Quire are friends'again,' but the climax of their feud during "Summer »nd Smdke" stage tour together, forever will be a classic. Dorothy, up-staging 'John at one performance, came dangerously close, to falling into the footlights: With a diabolical grin. John slopped reading his lines, walked over and picked v her up.

The first Is that the regular Southern Democratic organizations have never had »ny opposition from the Republicans before. Democratic leaders don't know what to do with: this opposition, and lliey'ie running scared. Any little show of Elsenhower enthusiasm is blown up'to the proportions of a major catastrophe and causes a' yell to Washington (or help. The second (actor Is that because of Ihe dispute over tldelands oil, a lot oi the big money from Texas and Louisiana oil men In particular is going to the Republicans. In years past It has always gone lo the Democrats. That makes the Democratic campaign in the South harder to H'lige. Instead of taking rnonej'' out of the South', the Democrats this 'year are" having to pour it In. And they haven't much to pour. Lnlest size-up on how the campaign Is going: There's nothing to smear but smear Itself. Sen. Robert F.Kerr of Oklahoma, who wanted (he Democratic presidential nomination ' for himself, has finally gotten over his disappointment and gone campaigning for the Stevenson-Spark- 1 man ticket in the Southwest, peddling his usual line, of medicine- show Wisecracks. Here's ' one he pulled at Waco, Tex.: lion to drive from Washington all the second-rate crooks. I guess he meant those who took In less than $18,000." ' U. S. Communist Party »ill cut the sorriest figure of its 32-year history. In this 'year's elections. Eighty-of the-party's top leaders have been indicted by the Tj. S. government: for-violation of the Smith act. This law, aimed against those, ^seekin? to overthrow the American form of, government, was held constitutional In 1951. Thirty-one Reds have been convicted under-this-act and 13 more are on trial in Hawaii and Pennsylvania. In addition; the U. S.: Commie party is on the run financially. The Daily Worker Is Indulging In one of its periodic appeals ,for funds to keep going. And the party treasury has been drained by the year-long fight against registration before the Subversive Activities Control Board. In addition to whatever fees were paid the party lawyers, Vito Marcantonlo and John Abt, they had to' buy 14,000 pages'of testimony transcript at 40 cents a page, which cost them $5,600. They're screaming about it. All .during the i campaign, the Republicans have been beating Democratic presidential ^'candidate Adlal Stevenson over the head for this pre-convention statement: "I have no ambition for- the nomination. I have no fitness, temperamentally, mentally, or physically for the job. ijus't don't want to be norninaled." But now, at (he end of the campaign. Republican National Committee headquarters has come up with a printed statement that, Ike's real throughts run like this: 'For myselfi I certainly don't "Senator Nixon said last,Salur : [want to be President of the "United day night thnl he had to win this i States.

That's what happened In the statement by the 23 Columbia University professors who criticized California Sen. Dick' Nixon's *18,000 extra expense fund as a "vicious example," r Defenders of Senator Nixon were quick to point out that nine of the 23 of Un-American Activities -Committee. To this the critics of Senator N.txo'n promptly replied in effect, "Columbia University! Oh, yes! Isn't that the school that General Eisenhower was president of? Is he the man who Is going to-root the left-wingers out of government? Why didn't he root them out of the Columbia faculty, to show,how/It could be done?" professors were listed in files the.

Written fw ' NBA Senrife* Perhaps the most distinctive, and at the same time the most puzzling, thing that Jesus said about faith Is In the words recorded In Matthew 17:20: "If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, remove hence to yonder place: and It shall remove: and nothing unto you." shall ,be impossible These .words offer no puzzlement for us today, when we see such things actually being accomplished. Beacon Hill, In Boston, at the top of which r worked editorially fur some years. 1s,\r believe, only about one-third of Its original height in the duj's of Puritan settlement when it got its name from the high-placed beacon which guided ships tar out at sea. This Is a process that' I have seen going on and the visitor who looks over the bay as he travels along the shore from Boston to Qulncy can see the result. : This is an interpretation of the words of Jesus that we could easily make today, the greater works that were yet to be accomplished. But I don't think it Is the Interpretation that Jesus.Intended, r am wonder- Ing what, the words meant to'the disciples to whom they were spoken, and what Jesus intended them to mean; • '- •'.',: . It can at leasl be said that they were spiritually Intended, and were not with reference to power-movlng machinery. Did I hey refer to m» lerlnl mountains? Were they Into *• IntcrpnM wltt «*M literalism? I hardly think so. Jesus, spoke at times in strong, vivid, eastern figures . of i speech, such as ', the reference to the camel going through the eye of a needle.-1 doubt whether,, the disciples would misunderstand, or Interpret the words with the literalism that we prosaic Westerners are too wont to bring to the reading.of the Bible. JMUS was about to give to these disciples a .seemingly Impossible task. He was sending them out to preach the Gospel to every creature, to make disciples of .all nations.. What a Vast, mountainous 'task', that ' ' ' -• '•(hose few must have seemed to unknown men as. they faced the Immense Roman Empire, with its materialism, il« power, and, its paganism! I wonder wnether it was' not these very words of Jesus that they must hare recalled as they faced that mountain-moving task. And with what amazing results the power of faith was vindicated, both the Roman Empire and the .whole world have known. - 1 It Is that sort of-faith that we need today.
