Kiwonians Put It Bluntly: 'Vote or Keep Mouth Shut' 7n launching their pail of Die current three-civic club "get out Hie vote" campaign, the Kiwanis Club has jfiven Blytheville voters, via sidewalk six'tis, R blunt reminder. "Vole or Keep Your Mouth Shut" reads the inscriptions painted on downtown sidewalks by Kiwanians. This is a sentiment which we share with the Kiwanians. We have advanced this thought in editorials, and we ara iflad to see it expressed forllu-iglilly in such public places. The citizen's voice is actually his vote. He may he able lo make glowing speeches, fighting charges and caustic criticism of any officeholder or administration. Bill if that's all he docs, his efforts are for the most part in vain. His vote is his potent weapon. With it, he can either endorse good government or "turn the rascals out." By going to the polls, he can determine to a great extent the tax burden he will have to bear, the domestic policies that relate In's nation lo tlie rest of the world. This nation's founding fathers intended it to be thus. Without a free and secret ballot, a democracy is not possible; without full participation of all voters in elections, a democracy is but a half-truth covering rule by an actual minority. The citizen who is <|iialified to vole but who fails to go to the polls is like the hunter who allows his gun to mst. He is as weaponless HS though lie had been totally disfranchised. When siii-h a partial-citizen finds occasion to r.rititize bis government or individual officeholders, he makes a mockery of his own words. Actually, he is not entitled lo take the position of critic. The situation is weil-.summed up in the half-dozen words in the Kiuanians' sidewalk inscriptions: "Vote or Keep Your Mouth Shut." plants, and more recently saturated military targets around Pyongyang. Alter both these ventures, protest was heard that they would upset the truce talks. Km | )(w ,..,„ vol , l|ps ,, ( nothing? For that is exactly what has been accomplished in the tedious negotiations, in spite of "paper gains" on some points, In oilier words, while examination of (he detailed status of the conferences would reveal numerous places where agreement was up parent, those accords are meaningless. This is so because the Kcds have persistently balked at taking (he really key steps to settlement. Thin is (he same sort of tactics they employed on tin- Austrian treaty. Having allowed ourselves to be enticed into phony peace talks and having thus lost important military advantage, we cannot now be blamed for seeking to' restore by any reasonable military nican.s tlie superiority we formerly enjoyed. As things sl.'uid, »•<; cannoi launch a heavy ground offoi.'iivc. We are not mounted for il. Kurthonnore, it svould be an abrupt signul Unit the truce talks were for all practical purposes ended except as an absurd fiction. And there is point in keeping Hie door open. We can, however, deliver heavy blows by air, for our a ir offensive has never been suspended at any stage of the negotiations. If we lapei-ed off, it was only because at iime.s our air strength was diminished. Today it is growing again, as evidenced by tlie mass flight of Thunderjets from tbi.s country to Japan for Korean duly. CJencral Collins, Army Chief of Staff, sounded the right note on a tour of the Korean battlefields when he siiid that without tin armistice, the Communists can expect hard air attacks. If the Keds want those assaults stopped, thev can have il that way. All they have to do is sit down »I I'anmunjom and negotiate honestly and seriously. Views of Others Thank You, Mr. Attlee In sonic British circles, those ot the lelt under Mr. Aneiirm Bsvan, the United States could not be iiiora unpopular if it were an open enemy rather than an ally. But It is pleasing to note llwt Mr. Winston Churchill is not the only leader of note to rie- lend a country which has done all it coultl no to prevent a British Collapse. Mr. clement Attire, the rormer socia-llsUprime minister, has'also rebuked those or loojSTiingtie who follow the Marxist line that the United States is a rapacious imperialist country. Addressing a Labor party audience, Mr. Aulee said, "No country In history has ever mada greater efforts to help other countries tlinn the United Slates hn.i done in the last six ycnrs. . . They imvc hit tlinm.*cli-c.<i hard to help you." True enough, he might h.-i re added (hat there Is more behind America's generosity thnn pure altruism, but still the [net remains tlial it has been our materials and dollars that, have made Britain a going concern rather than a bankrupt Kingdom. Mr. Attlee, at least. Is not ot that school which profe.vifjs lo see little choice between democratic America and romuimmlic RUHIH, even though Ilic soldiers ol England are now arraywl againit tlie Kcd threat In Europe and in Asia.
