That's tough I Call Off the Dogs, Politicos; Stalin Won't Sway Our Vote There" are probably more undecided voters in this campaign than in any pres- v • idential race in history. The doubtfuls are weighing "time for a change" vs. "you've never-had it so good." Each of thosfc phrases is shorthand for- a'lot of things which are of genuine • concern lo 'millions of Americans. The election will b« decided by the way in whichfthese voters settle their mental tug of war. However they make up their mmds,' we all ought to hope that it is without any nudging from Joe Stalin. In tHe past dozen years, it has become fashionable to enlist the aid of foreign demons in U. S. campaigns. \\'e're getting it again. Some political orators are saying: "Stalin wants- a Republican victory, so votfe for Stevenson." Others are shouting: "Stalin wants Ike beaten, so don't let that happen." It used to be: "Hitler wants Willkie." Or: "The Commies want Roosevelt." Now this may hot be as bad,as some of the low-level personality attacks we've • had in 1952, but it's not a great deal better. Isn't it pretty evident that the American voter picks a President, on-the basis of the factors which hit him strongest personally? Those'factors are things like the slate of his pockctbook, his feelings Rt having a son drafted and sent lo Korea, the mounting cost of his groceries. To talk as if he cared a hoot about who Stalin wants or doesn't want for President, is virtually to insult him. He doesn't care, and he shouldn't. We will make our choice Nov. 4 on grounds we think important to us as Americans. We will hope that, whatever out' selection, it will be palatable to our friends abroad. But we. are not going to be influenced by our enemies' estimate on the question of who can do them the least harm. Every lime a politician lias the nerve to suggest we should listen to Stalin, we ought to be conveniently deaf. Tax Squeezes Small Business the Hardest Whoever is President next January and whichever party controls Congress, * new tax bill is likely to come up for debate.' And when it does, some of the nation's tax students think the lawmakers ought to worry about more than how much money a tax law will pull in. A recent scholarly tax study reminds Bnrnmyn,U5 (ARK.) ; COURIER NEWS u* that, bfc»id«» bringing in revenue, taxei have broad economic •ffecti. They ehange th« habit* of busineasmen. They 'affect th« growth prospect* of individual companies, They encourage or discourage incentive. Take just one of these — the growth of particular businesses. Th« tax experts agree that under our present federal revehufc structure it is extremely difficult for a small corporation to grow. Basic corporation income taxes are high, but more severely handicapping ii the excess profit* tax. That tax is founded on the largely false assumption that every corporation which made more money after Korea than before ig reaping "war profits" and should be penalized for thig extra gain. Young busine'sses whose period of ex- pansion coincides' with 'this span ar« carelessly lumped with older firms which rtaily are.benefiting from war, The growing outfits cannot pile up the funds they need for'new plants, and they can't attract:outside capital because of the damper put on their earning outlook. There are other more technical features of the lax law which help to restrict an expanding business. They assure that small business will stay small. Small business has many avowed friends 'in Congress. Mostly they profess to bfc concerned with preventing little corporations from being squeezed by tlie'big ones. But the tax law squeezes them harder than any ruthless industrial giant. It assures, in ),he view of impartial tax experts, that the,big companies will be the only ones with the financial resources needed to keep growing. Readers Views To the Editor: 1 am silre lhat there were huridreds'of American, citizens who hung their heads in shame-that we hive men among us who can see humor In such a thing as the picture and liiicrlpllon on Page!One of your paper Thursday, Oct. 22, insult- , ing and disrespecting the memory of a man such as Abraham Lincoln* ^ Abraham Lincoln is not known by millions for being Republican, But he Is known by millions of school children and American citizens as being one of the greatest.men that hat ever lived; not for the parly he belonged lo but for his honesty, his humbleness, his integrity, hlj desire for peace and good will toward all men. His Ideals', of democracy can be safely relied on today'by our country for hope for power, for strength to carry on. His God is stlil our God . . . and then to see something on Page pnc^-pr^you'r paper such as "In Memoiy of John wTlkes Booth, who Killed Abraham Lincoln" and the profanity'that followed ' . . . Well, just to put in.two words, it stinks. An Indignant Citizen Views of Others Afraid of Peace? Aneurin Bevan, the leader of extremj left-wing forces in the British labor movement,'is, of course, a viciously anti-American Socialist fanatic. His anti-American tirades are'Strange payment by an Englishman for the billions of dollars which the taxpayers of this country could'so ill afford, but' which the United Slates has poured into Bevan's country, while his own Labor Party nu-in power, to save" that country from- economic col- lipse. Nevertheless, Americans should consider carefully Sevan's charge at the annual Labor Parly convention that the'United States is."har-rldden by two tears: war and unemployment.— the fear of peace." Certainly (he people of the United Stales are not "hag-ridden" by fears of war and Deace. The people »xmld not Hesitate a moment ih choosing peace — if honorable peace could be had — and »ny problems, such as unemployment, which peace might bring. At the present time the question is somewhat academic; for with Soviet Russia bent on world domination, there is no prospect ol real peace In the foreseeable future. , We ahould, however, be sure thai we place In positions of power leaders who are not afraid of peace. —ChatUnnoga News-Free Press.

TUKSDAY, OCTOBER 88, IMS You Can't Win—Or the Triurriph of Wage Controls Peter Cdson's Washington Column — Candidates' Differences Show In Labor, Farm Vote Appeals WASHINGTON—(NBA)—Tn Iheiri campaign's la win the so-culled' 'labor" and "farm" votes, Repub- Ican ' Gen. Dwlght D. Eisenhower and Democrat Gov. Adlai .Stevenson begin to show their real differences. No candidate or party ever wins all the voters in either of these segments of the , economy, — —^—^—' unit t!*or-» .,**l~ n Peter ^^ ered" by farm or labor leaders., But it is an important part of victory for. any candidate to carry majorities in the fnrm belt states and Ihe. industrial regions where organized labor is strongest. General Elsenhower has made only one major bid for the labor vole, in his speech' lo the API. matched lhat, and in addition has spoke^ on labor relations at Tampa,- St. Louis, Detroit and Chicago. Key lo ihe battle for the labor vote Is the. stand on the Taft-Hartey act. General Eisenhower said, 'I am in-favor not of repealing, aut of amending the law." ' Governor Stevenson said at Tampa, "We stand for repeal and replacement of the Taft-Harlley act with a better, fairer law." In amplifying his View, General Eisenhower listed these principles which should be continued-fri the awr The encouragement of collective bargaining. The right to strike. An advance notice before a strike Is called. A requirement that both unions and employers live up !o their contracts. The assurance that union members get regular reports on their organizations" finances. Want* More Protection For Labor On things that should he changed. General Eisenhower said, "The .law might be used to break unions. That must be changed." He also advocated a requirement that employers_ take an oath they are not Communists; as labor leaders are now required to do: • Calling attention' to the fact that Senator Taft had himself recom-. mended 23 changes in his law, Gov-' ernor Stevenson listed five main principles for a new law: Accept unions,, as -bargaining agents. -Require democratic standards' of conduction for unions. Outlaw unfair labor practices like (urlsdictlonal disputes. Reject the labor injunction. Find new methods for handling national emergency disputes, giving ihe President a wider choice of procedures. To these five, he Rdded at Chicago: Make it difficult for labor disputants lo bring their case to the government. Governor Stevenson has gone far beyond the Toft-Hartley act in outlining a labor program. It includes: Larger appropriations for Bureau of Labor Statistics. Establishment of tin "extension service" In Department of Labor lo train union leaders. Give National Labor Relations Board a bigger staff to settle disputes faster. Relraln workmen displaced by machines. Improve working conditions for the million migrant farm workers. On farm issues themselves, bolh Eisenhower and Stevenson have pledged continuance of the support price program at 90. per cent of parity . through 1054. Far beyond that, Eisenhower said at the Kasson, Minn., plowing contest, "I believe that agriculture is entitled (o a fair, full share of the national income. . .And a fair share is not merely 90 per cent of parity. . .it is full parity." The general has not defined, however, what full Parity is. Advocates Constant Reappraisal Governor Stevenson countered this in his Kasson speech by saying: "Support at 90 per cent of parity is not necessarily Ihe permanent and only answer. . ,1 think this program should be constantly reappraised to determine If!it 'is fair to the .taxpayers and responsive to our "needs." ... . •Eisenhower'is for more support prices for the non-perishable crops. Stevenson says: V. . .there should be protection. . '.for those producers of perishables who need.it." Promising to reorganize farm credit, General Eisenhower ;.says: "Among other things, we will take steps lo'meet the need of.to- day's mechanized farmer for larger operating capital." This is interpreted as meaning more aid for the big farmers. Governor Stevenson in his -kas- son, Port Dodge, In., and St. Louis speeches focused "research, housing- and credit programs" on'"rural poverty." He said: "We must find ways lo bring low-Income farmers into a fuller participation in the economic life of our country." . ' •• Bolh candidates endorse farmer cooperatives, soil conservation, rural electrification and good roads. In genera]. Governor Stevenson sticks by the present Democratic farm programs. General Eisenhower's four-point farm program outlined at Kasson Included: 1 .— Farm ..programs must be cleansed of politics by establishment; of B bipartisan agricultural commission to review policies. 2— Transfer these programs into farmer-run operations, with maximum responsibility decentralized. 3 — Adapt these programs to regional, stale and local conditions. 4—Find sound methods for obtaining greater production from our diversified farms. tlx Dot tor Says By EDWIN P. JORDAN, SI. D. Written for NEA Service A mother who signs herself "Distracted" says lhat for the fourth lime In two years she is trealing her children for pinworms. In, her letter she asks three questions concerning Ihis common condilion among: youngsters. First, she nsks, "Why do the children continue lo have pinworms? I Ihought perhaps the whole family should be treated, but my husband refuses to cooperate." Second, she asks, "Is the children's diel in any way responsible?" And finally, she, nsks if there is nny other way besides boiling lo Ircnt the bedclolhlng, towels and washcloths, and personal elolhing of the youngsters, If Ihe information given by "Distracted" Is correct, her children have been cured of pinworms on several occasions, but have been reinfecled. This Is unfortunately a common experience, and one can only guess as lo whether Ihe rcinfcclion cnme from within the family or front outside. Under such circumstances, however, all the members of the family should be examined for pinworms, Including (he husband, even though he has no symptoms. The chances ot reinfection «re so great lhat in addition lo hygienic measures, everyone with whom the children are likely to come in conlact and Ihus become iclnfecled should be examined and given treatment If they art found to have Ifceae parasitea. Tn answer to the second quest- lion, it can be said lhat the diet is not responsible for reinfection with pinworms unless somehow or oilier pinworms are contaminating the food, and this could only occur if somdone handling the food already had the worms. This mother, like many others, has evidently been extremely careful in handling: ami serving food and in inslrucling her children in hygienic measures. The fact that she has boiled the washing: so carefully and still the children have become rcinfecled. suggests the cause of reinfection lies elsewhere. Wash Clolhlrit Caref.lly The parasilcs are rather delicate end die fairly easily outside the human body, so that it would probably be quite safe merely to wash the clothing carefully In hot water? then make sure lhat It is thoroughly dry. Unfortunately, such experiences as that described are by no means unusual and about the only suggestion one can make is that still further etforls be made lo Identify all possible carriers of pinworms so that they, loo. can be Ireated and will not serve »s » source oi future trouble.
