Eisenhower's Big Task: To Wage Instructive Battle General Eisenhower and Governor Stevenson, the major parly presidential nominees, are both essentially men of decent character and high motive. May we therefore look forward to a campaign free of mud slinging and wild charges? Perhaps we could if the campaign were to be left wholly to the nominees themselves. Although even here there viHiM lie no flat, assurance. Competing for the Senate in New York three years ago, John Foster Dulles and Senator Lehman, two high-minded men, fought like waterfront roustabouts. But of course, the candidates will not he alone on the hustings. Each will have a host of free-swinging helpers who will feel no particular compulsion to observe the political niceties. The slugging may be severe. Many will say that the nominees ar« handicapped not alone by their gentlemanly tendencies but by their closeness on many issues—especially in foreign affairs. Both are moderate middle-of- the-road men. If you scan their public utterances carefully, you find amazing similarity at many points. Despite these basic parallels, however, « marked difference in emphasis is inevitable in the coming campaign. Stevenson Vrlorce will have lo defend the Democratic record and extol its program. Kiseiiiiott-er will be free to assail those things. Kight here is the critical area for the Republicans. .Many iioii-par(y members feel 20 years is more than long enough for one party to hold power. Many sre disturbed over one phase or another of Democratic rule—conduct of the Korean war, corrupt ion in \Vashins- ton, failure to hall inflation, ami so on. These people want to hear the Democrats criticized. But they want more. They want to know what positive, con- jsfnictive ideas (he Republicans have for doing the job better. Merc denunciation is not enough to attract legions of wavering voters. Denunciation unmatched by constructive, hopeful plans is the specialty of the extremist. And the great lesson of the two conventions in Chicago was the shoving of the extremists into the background. The moderates won. because they believe people are fed up with extremism and seek a middle course. This outcome—Kisenliowcr vs. Stevenson — may not make for a sharp cleavage on issues and men as some observers feel we should have. However that may be, ihe largest part of the voting populace, as it i s ,-ead by politicians whose business it is to judge 88 - JiT.TTHKVTLT.r, fAKK.) COUHTTIH XEWS ctiraleJy, wants tlia kind of result Chicago produced. Stevenson, of course, begins with tlie advantage of a great basic Democratic strength among (he electorate. His task will be to convince the big, shifting mass ol' unsettled voters in the middle range lhal they have nothing to gain by drifting into tlie Uepublican /one. Ue is unlikely (<i ar-compJish this if he suggests the Democratic administration has l>eeu mi marred by corruption and error. Kiseuhower's I ask, aside from legitimate criticism of Democratic failings, will be to devise a positive array of policies Uisit will take his putty out ol' the realm of strident di'iiunciutioii, where it has dwelt so long. In (lie final lest, it will he the kind of program Eisenhower comes up with I hill will mark out the ivstl differences between himself and Stevenson in this' election year. U'e all understand that tlic |)CIIH>- ui'fUs are running on thtir record, with the evident promise lo continue the same, with appropriate modification suiting Stevenson's own great conservatism. What llic nation now awaits is Kis- enhower's version of American lili: in Ihe years from )i)r,;j u, i<),-,7 i am | ,,<,,._ haps beyond. If the general fashions the program he seems to understand is needed, then his l<)52 campaign, whatever its occasional harsh undertones, may turn out lo be the mosl sensible and sincere ami instructive I he American people have seen for more Ihim three deeaik-s. Views of Others Moneymaking No Sin We've been disturbed In recent years ol what appears to he a .spreading socialistic notion tluil there's something sinful about a business making a legitimate profile and downright mi-American to accumulate wealth through personal endeavor. Walter K. Miitherly o[ the university of Florida's college of business ndnHjiistriKioii believes it's high time business iLselt do something to counteract this trend. We agree with the dean. After nil, profits are earnings without which there would be little or no Incentive to risk Investment capital and put up with the headaches of running •» business. The government scorns to forget Unit In imposing the now .near-confiscalory lax rates. Urging » business man's offensive "In favor of prolit making," Dean Mntherly told the Newspaper Advertising Executive Association al Daytona Beach that privattintainess Is "»o longer permitted lo put Its (nvn~prosr;nn into eflcct unmolested." He sain the American system of free enterprise has been hobbled by: a transformation to "government guided, enterprise;" development of the welfare stale; a "shift ol power" from employers lo employe. 1 :. It's gotten to tlie point. Mntherly said, where "some business men ore inclined to make excuses, tt not to apolpgize outright, lor their inon- eyninking." —Tallahassee (Pla.i Democrat elementary Study The University of Gi'nrcw is RIUIIC sciio-js consideration to launching an economic education plogram for secondly school trachcis.

Nixons Record WASHINGTON -<NEA1_ The n '!-o;it surprise In the Republican '•'ational Convention continues to >e the selection of young Sen lichard IH. Nixon of California us 'icc-pro.sidentini candidate. He vas Ocnerat Eisenhower's pcrson- I choice. But behirut thai are a lumber of circumstances requir- ng fuller explanation. Senator Nixon was a' California lelcgale and cast his vote for Gov. Earl Warren as the slate's fn- orlte-son candidate for t!io presidency. But throughout the pre- convention maneuvering, Sena-, lor Nixon w a s Eisenhower contact man with Ihe Californians and was influential in trying to gel pledges for Eisenhower votes to be cast after the delegation . sholl l d " uc re . leased by Governor Wiirren. Senator Nixon's interest in Ihe Eisenhower movement stemmed from a poll of California Elepub- licans he conducted earlier in ihe year. To a mailing list numbering over 10,000. Senator Nixon sent queries on preferences for presidential candidates. The replies, came bnrk overwhelmingly in fn- vor of General Eisenhower, with; Senator Tafl a poor second and Governor Warren third. Thai is wii;ir supposedly converted Senator. Nixon to Gpin-ral Eisenhower — j and vice versa. Tl'.c publicly announced reasons r .Senator Nixon's selection as vice-presidential candidate were first, his possible appeal to youth, and second, his calculated appeal lo the voters nl laifre as a cleaneci- up foe of communism. Held To Eisenhower Frelgn Policy As a bright and starry-eyed young progressive Republican, however, n careful examination of Senator Nixon's voting record in Congress reveals his qualifications ns a knight in General Eisenhower's hew crusade against Ihe Old Guard. On foreign affairs, since he got into ihe 'Senate two years ago, Ni.xon has voted pretty consistently in support of the Eisenhower point of view. In 1951 he voted against cuts of economic aid to Europe. He also voted against cuts In military aid. He was for the bill on final passage. This year he voted five times against cuts in the Mutual Security program nnd was for the bill on final passage. He voted lo add S22 million to Voice of America funds. He voted to limit U. s. troops in Europe to four divisions. But ho voted for -universal military training and against limitations on the draft. He voted against cuts in U. S. defense and Air Force appropriations. Previously, as it congressman In the lower House, he had voted against aid to Korea and votedfor cuttins arms aid to Europe. He was absent nnd unrecorded on the original Point Four bill lo give aid lo underdeveloped countries, lie voted for all the "crippling" amendments to the reciprocal trade .icrrceniont.s- program, hut he voted for the bill on final passage. It Is on domestic Issues that Senator Nixon's voting record shows his affinity for the Old Guard Republican causes. On farm legislation he has voted ,w,5ister>t!y for cuts' in the soil conservation program. He has •."Jted to cut Rural Electrification loan and administration funds. He was against raising school lunch programs. He sponsored an amendment lo cut Depaitmenl ol Agriculture information programs. On labor legislation, he voud for the Tafl-Hartley law, voted for use ofth is law in the steel strike nnd voted for abolition of the Wage Stabilization Bonrd. He voted for the Knowland amendment allowing unemployment compensation funds to be used against strikers. On Social Security he voted to mnke public the names on relief rolls. In the House he voted against expansion of Social Security. He was for increasing grants to the states for child health this year. He was against the slum clearance act of 19-13 and against financial aid for housing cooperatives the next year. He was against increasing defense public housing programs this year. He has voted consistently lo curb and limit rent control authority. On six votes to close tax loop holes, he voted against four and was absent on two. He voted tor nearly all amendments to cut Department of Interior funds for power and reclamation projects, but voted for the bill on final passage. But he voted against culs in Bureau of Land Management funds, which would have affected California.
