Figures Show Big Need For New Voting Interest An outfit cnlletl The American Hcri- tngc Foundation comes along with an old idea which looks good and -some new figures which look bud. The old idea is Hint people lucky " enough to live in n country where they vote should do it. The new figures—new to us. at least — are comparisons of the number of people who vote here and in oilier countries, and the figures make us look pretty bad. In 19'I8, for instance, only 'SI per cent of the people in this country eligible lo vote did so. But in 19-18 in Italy 89 per cent of the eligibles voted. In England last year the figure was 83 per cent. The year before in Belgium it was 90 pet- cent. In Canada. 75 per cent of the eligibles voted in lfl-1!). In Sweden last year it was 80 per cent. Furthermore, our voting record has been gelling worse for aboul the last three-iiuarters of a century. In 1880, J'or instance, 78.•! per cent of the eligi- hles in thi.s country volcd. II liwl dropped to 73.5 per cenl in 1000. When women volcd 1'ur the first lime in .11)20 it dropped to what must have been an nil-time low of -I!).8 per cent. '.

The present ones include the American Legion, the Daughters of the American Revolution. Jewish War Veterans.

It is .iimior Chamber of Commerce, Kiwani.s Club and American Legion in More to Cleaning Up Capital Than Meets the Eye Adlai Stevenson, a pretty deft phrasemakor, was himself lln- lufgi-t of a well-wrought verbal shaft trie other day. Senator Lodge, of Massachusetts, who managed General Kisenhuwor's campaign through the K<!]iuh!ican con- vcnlion, allowed as how, if tin; iJi-mo- . crats remained in power, (he next four years would find "the same fal cal:< Hi'ound the White House at night no matter how it would look in the daytime." The senator was stciluuj: tin early note in wlial certainly uill mmint to a full clioriiK of Republican aliacks on that subject, l.ixlge didn't specify jusl who (he frit cats were. Hi; said everybody knew. Itcporters assumed lie meant the hangers-on and the party wheels who have caused the Truman administration so much embarrassment in recent years, and whom the President himsi-lf lias been anything but firm and decisive in dealing with. The issue is one which will gel a .sympathetic ear from all Republicans and ninny Democrats. Some of the latter, in fact, are known In believe that only a change of administration can rid Iho parly in power of its 20-year accumulation of political barnacles. Fortunately for the Democrats, however, they cotddn't have chosen a better man than Stevenson to handle such charges. On his record as governor of Illinois, Stevenson is an arch foe of t h e entrenched politico and all he connotes in the way of inefficiency, graft, and corruption. In four years as governor of Illinois, he dragged that corruption-ridden state up lo a position where in many respects il now ranks with the' best, lie fired people, he shook up and reorganized, and he got results. '" . Furthermore, if Stevenson is elected in November he will go into office singularly unencumbered by deals and promises lo Uie party bigwigs. lie didn't seek the nomination until possibly the very last. It was thrust tip- on him. And being in lhat fortunate position, it is unlikely indeed that be would also allow to he hung around bis neck a millstone of political commitments. Thus he would be freer than many presidents taking office to effect a general Washington overhaul and cleanup. Stevenson said in bis welcoming speech at the Democratic convention that his party should admit its mistakes, and certainly some of the "fat- cat" aspects of the Truman adminislia- lion would l»> among then'. But it's one tiling to admit a mistake, and another !o do something aboul it. An entrenched political parly is a big and unwieldy thing.
