Flying Saucers? We're In Favor of Them It may not al first appear to he in keeping wilji the conventional editorial page material, but after due consideration this newspaper lias decided In take an editorial stand on the timely subject of flying saucers. We're in favor of them. At least thus far. We admit they may later be proved detrimental to the well-being of humanity as we know it. But for the time being, anyway, we bear them no grudge. If for no other reason, and regard- Jess of their true cause, form and purpose, we stand in favor of flying snncers because they have excited American curiosity and interest. Americans, we regret to say, have a way of becoming easily bored with things. Even politics. And it is contrary to the much-heralded "American way of life" for this nation to become jaded about things. Curiosity is the basis of progress just as necessity has been called the mother of invention. Too, Americans in recent years have become increasingly introspective. Despite the fact we appear to be supporting the rest of the free world, our interests keep swinging back to ourselves on a what's-in-it-for-me basis. Flying saucers have turned our interests and speculations outward, perhaps to other worlds. Not even the experts can explain flying saucers. The experts don't even agree among themselves. No. not all. frontiers have been explored. Not every! hing has been ox- plained. Here is an nppurtunity for American genius to tackle another puzzler and come up with the answer. We will lie wailing patiently for that answer, sitting quietly with our eyes cast extrovertly skvwanl. them th*» *h«* th«p were ready and willing. And what about the impression made by the farcically frivolous aspects of a convention on a television audience of voters who are attentive mainly to the gerioun business of choosing nominees and platforms? Th« horseplay and time-killing ami pullii.tf and hauling are something people watching a convention will put up with because, up to now, those elements of the proceedings have been accepted as somehow traditional. Rut that acceptance was before the chilly eye of television brought to millions of people, remole from Chicago and pnrKonatly linwarmerl by its holiday spirit, what actually goes on at a convention. Now. a lot of people are wondering if our president-making machinery couldn't do with some overhauling and modernization in keeping with the limoa, of which the spirit is serious and the byword efficiency. If convent ions got their job done in a completely open manner—simply, di- reclly, easy lo see. and reflecting thoroughly the will of the people, it would be one thing. But a lot of people left their television sets groggily after Stevenson waa nominated, wondering just what happened, to Kefauver. The last a lot of people knew, the gentleman from Tennessee was nicely placed and moving well. Then the track caved in. Some of the souped-up demonstrations for favorite sons lent an unbecoming carnival aspect lo a show which at its best took on at times the aspects of a high-grfifle circus. To ninny people walching such goings on in Ihe quiet of their darkened living rooms, it was just simply embarrassing. The same goes Cor a lot of the moss- laden style of oratory — long on arm waving and yelling and short on common sense. For their own political well- being, in this day of television, such speakers should be curbed. Lacking conviction and thought, such oratory I Mints the whole proceedings with the same defect. The interminable roll calls of individual delegations could kill interest in an ascent of Niagara Kails. That they, and some of (.be other .stumbling and fumbling aspects of the conventions, killed the interesl of millions of lele- viewers is illustrated by a fact or two. The, Republican convention had a night-time. TV ral ing.-jiKonly 3fi in New York Cily, for instance, .which is poor. "I Love Lucy" does better, and it has competition, which for the most paii the conventions did not. Views of Others Evaluation of UN Chilly Eye of Video Exposes Convention Machinery Rust The point has been made that the convention system of choosing our presidential nominees must be a good one if it can produce two such men as Stevenson and Kisenlunver. That's likp saying that bernii-e a broken-down, ill-ec|uipped gun factory, powered by a water wheel and manned by gnomes, turns out a gun that will shoot now and then, it is a gond factory. What seems more likely is that good presidential material is chosen in spite of conventions and not because of them.
