G-ZZat LdrJOt the world will' I waiter ummaniu have tt b EnOW11 They know that we believe in freedom They know ! that we are capable of becoming ! very powerful But they do not yeti know whether we have the wisdom ! and the knowledge and the wllJ power and the perseverance to use ourItower in the cause of freedom THIS IS THE UNANSWERED! QUESTION IN THE MINDS OF MEN EVERYWHERE AND BE-1 CAUSE OF IT WE ARE IN ALL1 DEALINGS WEAKENED AND! THE WHOLE CONDUCT OF THE WAR IS HARDER Thus when the! peoples of the world read the! speech which Sumner Welles has just delivered they will note that Mr Welles was not only making a great declaration of American policy They will note that Mr Welles was aware that be must still debate the foundations of the policy with his own countrymen The voice of America is therefore too uncertain and unclear to be convincing Our voice is muffled and our actions are undermined because we can not be sure that we are moving towards a great peace and not towards another great debate in the senate of the United States This is the ghost from our past which haunts us wherever we turn whatever we say whenever we try to make any long plan for the conduct of the war or for the period of the armistice which will follow the war or for the settlement of the peace and the demobilization This ghost is not laid when public men stand up and say that no matter what they thought before since Dec 7 they have given unreserved support to the war The ghost continues to walk because nobody can forget the history of our actions from Nov 11 1918 to Dec 7 1941 The world remembers that on armistice day of the other war our flag was recognized throughout the -world as thesymbol of freedom on the one hand and of overwhelming force on the other We stood then where General Marshall says we are determined to stand at the end of this terrible struggle The world remembers that in the next 15 years -we dismantled our force and except for occasional pious words we rndoned the cause of law and order upon which the realities of freedom depend AND SO UNTIL WE CAN CARRY THE CONVICTION THAT THIS WILL NOT HAPPEN AGAIN WE CAN NOT SPEAK CLEARLY OR ACT EFFECTIVELY Certainly we can not convince our Allies or the enemy peoples or the neutrals unless it is evident that we have convinced OURSELVES What does that mean? IT MEANS I SUBMIT THAT WE CAN NOT BE THE RELIABLE! CHAMPIONS OF FREEDOM JUST BECAUSE WE ADMIRE FREEDOM AND HAVE GREAT MILITARY FOWER The crucial question ic whether in Mr Welles' penetrating observation we are convinced that our own enlightened self-interest demands that we take our part in maintaining the law and order of the world There is no use telling the world that our hearts arli soft The question is whether our heads are hard For while we are let us hope generous and chivalrous in our intentions we need not pretend—because no one will believe us—that we shall act greatly over long stretches of time unless we feel it to be self-evident that this is the only sensible the only safe the only profitable way to act For the exaltations of war will pass And unless the promises we now make and the resolutions we take now have be- come ingrained in our common sense they will float away again as in 1919 upon thin air solving our alliances and dismantling the war controls? Will they believe they can have one more try at a policy of let-her-rip and the devil take the hindmost? If they do think this they will find politicians to do the demagoguery to carry out such ideas But if the industrialists or any considerable n)nber of them take this line they will surely ruin themselves They 'will cause a national disaster They will wreck all prospect of peace in the world Yet we must not fool ourselves The temptation will be strong The flesh is weak and will be yielding This will to resist the temptation to sacrifice the long future to immediate profit requires 'Der Henked at the Gate It would hardly be fair to say the civilized world rejoiced over news of the death on Thursday of Reinhard Heydrich for that would be uncilivized: but we go so far as to say that untold mMions of men and women including some in Germany breathed a sigh of relief when they read the announcement that he had succumbed to wounds inflicted by a patriot of Prague three daya before Throughout all Europe Reinhard Heydrich at SS was known as "der henken" the hangman) or as the butcher of Bavaria" He had richly earned either title or both by his utter ruthlessness in carrying out orders of the German gestapo itself the most cruel and barbarous organization that ever functioned in any land There Is some satisfaction perhaps in the circumstance that he lingered three days before death ended his suffering—days In which at least during conscious intervals he had Opportunity to review his career in butchery Reports from Prague state that three blood transfusions were given in an effort to save a life that had been devoted to the shedding of innocent blood but these proved unavailing—perhaps for the reason that nowhere in Europe could be discovered blood of the Heydrich type And that is something that can be recorded in Europe's favor It is not likely that the hangman experienced a genuine change of heart during the time that elapsed between his wounding and his passing even so we are by no means certain that an eleventh hour conversion would have saved him—we are unorthodox to that extent Our belief would be that when Reinhard Heydrich crossed over into the unknown realm and appeared at heaven's portal he was met by St Peter guardian of the gate with a firm rejection And as Heydrich departed we can imagine the stern but just guardian angel holding his nose with one hand and waving the Bavarian butcher out with the other saying between clenched teeth: "Back to the hell which spawned you and to the devil who was the model for your life on earth" And so the end of der benken Rules for Bike Riders Unfortunately there are not any satisfactory rules covering the use of bicycles on the streets and highways but it is going to be necessary to formulate them and have them promulgated by states and cities There are it is estimated by Public Safety Magazine some 9000000 bicycle riders in the United States today—and as many more who'd like to have a bike if it could be bought The two-wheeled affair using foot-power only is becoming popular again and there are many automobile owners who are depending upon this method of transportation who would have scoffed at the idea a few short months ago We have had no count as to the number of bicycles now being pedaled along the streets of Shreveport but it probably is several times as great as it was two years ago and it poses a problem for motorists bicyclists and pedestrians While there are we believe no ordinances on the statute books governing the use of the streets by bicyclists the National Safety Council makes these suggestions for safety: 1 Obey all traffic laws signs and signals 2 Ride at the extreme right of the street with traffic—not on the left facing it Do not zig-zag 3 Ride single file—not two or more abreast 4 Keep both hands on the handlebars Do not stunt or indulge in horseplay 5 Never bitch a ride on another vehicle 6 Carry packages in a basket or attached securely to the bicycle where they will not interfere with steering pedaling or vision 7 Never ride double or carry a passenger on the handlebars S Keep your headlamp and rear reflector in good working order if you ride at night A rear light is better than a reflector And by all means have a horn or bell on your bicycle—and use it 9 Use arm signals when you turn 10 Dismount and walk across busy corners 11 Take it easy and be even more careful that when driving an automobile A bicycle is no match for a car 12 Remember—your bicycle is subject to the same traffic rules as an automobile Obey them If these simple safety rules are heeded it is certain that accidents will be held to a minimum— probably human lives will be saved The Journal suggests that every bicycle owner young or old make it a point to memorize the above safety tips—and then scrupulously carry them out Discouraging Figures The city of New Orleans for the first five months of 1942 has chronicled as many automobile traffic fatalities as have occurred in Memphis Dallas and Houston combintd—a record that to say the least is discouraging Yet and strangely enough most of the Orleans members of the general assembly have always opposed enactment of a drivers' license law for the state of Louisiana It may be that the fatality figures this year will cause most of the members from the metropolis to change their views—and their votes Some support from Orleans has already been promised this time—a good sign BIBLE VERSE To shew

Gas Rationing There may be divided opinion through the country regarding the need for nation-wide gasoline rationing especially in the Southwest now glutted with surplus oil But there is no divided opinion in the office of price administration A nationwide plan is being drawn up in full detail and announcement will be made F non Basic reason is that gas rationing is the only way to conserve rubber which OPA offictals describe as our most precios and irreplaceable national resource to Supreme Court Differences With seven of the nine justices of the United States supreme court appoiVed by President Roosevelt and an eighth made chief justice the natural expectation would be that these New Deal selections at least would see eye to eye That however is not the case on the contrary the term now drawing to a close has produced more split decisions than any other of record Five-four verdicts have cropped up on many occasions and unanimous decisions have been few and far between notwithstanding the "liberals" chosen by Mr Rooseveltare in complete control According to one Washington correspondent Jay G Hayden two bitter personal feuds have developed during the past year one involving Justices Black and Frankfurter the other Justices Murphy and Jackson the last named quarrel is a hangover from the days when both men were in the department of justice Statistics show that in 45 divided opinions of the court Justices Black and Frankfurter have been on different sides 20 times in split verdicts Murphy and Jackson each wrote the opinion for his side four times Jackson subscribing to none of Murphy's findings and Murphy siding with Jackson but once Justice Owen J Roberts sole remaining "conservative" from the old regime might have been expected to dissent most often from the 'liberal" New Dealers but as a matter of fact he landed with the majority 28 times and with the minority only 14 times Justice Douglas has been the most consistent dissenter with 20 cases in which he was on the losing side and 25 on the inning side We are not convinced that this proves anything in particular beyond the fact that lawyers continue to disagree on legal questions—as they always have disagreed and as likely they will contitwe for all future time to differ The public in general and litigants in particular would no doubt be better satisfied if all our supreme court's verdicts were unanimous thus leaving no room for doubt in the layman's mind But human nature being what it is this is entirely too much to expect A five-four decision of course is just as binding as one where the justices are all of one mind but it causes litigants to wonder how come the nine young men can not get together Opposition to Taxes Shreveport merchants retailers and wholesalers alike at a meeting attended byapproximately 200 persons adopted a resolution protesting the proposed sales tax upon wholesalers and jobbers and sent a representative to the state capital w here such a measure is being considered in the legislature now in session A similar meeting was held at Baton Rouge with wholesalers present from a number of South and Central Louisiana communities and similar protests were made It has been announced by Governor Jones that there must either be additional revenues found or in the alternative some state services will have to be curtailed It is the duty of the legislators to decide which course shall be followed and the governor has wisely refrained from making any official suggestions in regard thereto In our Opinion the general assembly would be very unwise to adopt any new taxes at this time w hen the war burden upon the people is heavy unless of course there should be emergency that could be met in no other way And especially unpopular under existing circumstances would be a sales tax for the reason that the present state administration was placed in office upon a pledge that the old sales tax would be repealed If the legislators in their wisdom decide to letain all state services now enjoyed and to find additional revenues to pay for same they should seek some other source but we believe an os erwhelming majority of the citizens of Louisiana would prefer the lopping off of some services-- trimming the expenditures to meet the expected revenues which it is certain will be drastically reduced Economy of the strictest kind should be practiced in Louisiana while the war emergency exists Other Newspapers Views ACTION IS DISAPPOINTING The sweeping manner In which the house ways and means committee has rejected the treasury's proposals to tax the interest on state municipal and other public securities is most disappointing The treasury had urged removal of existing exemptions from both outstanding and future issues of this kind Now the committee opposes taxing caber There is a strong case against taxing present securities issued with a tax-free provision and purchased in good faith by investors relying on that assurance These bonds because they are tax-free have enabled states and other governmental bodies to obtain revenue at low rates of interest They have been bought in large part by life insurance companies and other fiduciary institutions because of the element of safety and the assurance of a steady yield The extent to which they have been purchased by individuals of large wealth in order to avoid income taxes has been much exaggerated Tax-free securties deprive the federal government of revenue which must be made up by the mass of taxpayers most of them of small means The privilege with regard to future issues by states and municipalities should be withdrawn just as has been done concerning future federal issues There is no reason why the house committee should not have discriminated between outstanding bonds and future issues and made only the latter subject to federal income taxes It would be most unfortunate should its action block this imperatively needed reform—Philadelphia Inquirer
