Television Could Revive 'Lincoln-Douglas' Debates We always -salt! televisiA would grow up and amount to something some day. Now it's got its big chance. There's talk of a series of hour-long debates between Adlai Stevenson, speaking the affirmative on whether (he Democratic Party is a good tliinR, and General Eisenhower, taking the negative. This would he Ihe biggest thinp nf its kind since Lincoln a n r) Dnttsrlns squared off in a similar engagement in 1858. Scheduled at any hour except maybe 4 a.m., R televised Stevenson-Eisenhower debate on the big campaign issues would have a larger audience than the entire population of the United Stales in 1858, which was just under 30,000,000. Stevenson is reported interested in the idea, and small wonder. The coln-Doug-las debates were held right around Springfield. 111., the section where Stevenson was raised and where he now holds forth as governor. Furthermore, the. Lincoln - Douglas debates were first suggested and then personally arranged for by Stevenson's grandfather on his mother's side. Jesse Felt, who was a friend of both Lincoln and IJouplas. Too, Stevenson has hern likened In Lincoln both as to certain qualities of mind anil their similarly lean and lucid styles of writing and speaking. That would stand him in good stead in tie- bate. Despite Ki?enhower's personal magnetism ami his good mind, which would do well by him in a TV debate, he could hardly be blamed for declining to tangle with a man as well adapted to that field of endeavor as is Stevenson. But aside from and above Hie qualification,- and inclinations of the participants in Bny such drhale, is Ihe overriding omsidwaiinn of the value such a thing would he to the country as a whole. It would bring to the votfirs in dramatic form the issues lo be decided nnd the Democratic and Republican ideas for solving them. At the. moment the differences of Ihe two nominees on certain hig issues is not too clear. On foreign policy, for instance they're pretty much together. Both are Internationalists with a capital "I." On many domestic issues the)- are not far (ASS.) COTJSTE* •part, both b«inf tnlddLe-of-the-road- ers, government economy advocates, and »nti-hig government, A television meeting between the two would he sure to hrinjr out sharply, though, those points on which they do disf^rree and it's Important for the public to know exactly what those points are and what each nominee intends to do aliouf, them. It's Ihe big.shifling i na ,ss of independent voters that would be most influenced by n clear, dramatic |)iv?seiita- lion such as the TV debates would allow. And it would be certainly a valuable gift to the democratic tradition it that clp;tr, dramatic presentation Jakes place this year, and every four years from now on. The. value of TV in letting the public gel an inside, look at politics has been demons*rated at congressional hearings and at the recent party conventions in Chicago, Both were great stimulants to public interest in government, A TV debate between Stevenson and Eisenhosver could be an even greater one. Views of Others Can Stevenson Effect Changes? I EDITORS NOTE: Tlie editorial reprinted below Is from the BJoominuton. in., Pautagraph, In which Ciov. Artlai E. Stevenson, the Dcmncratio nominee Tor president, owns about one-fourth interest.j With less than three months remaining until the presidential flection, one gratifying fact looms large. Thn voter »'ill have two splendid Americans from which to choose. . Dwieht D. Eisenhower and Arilai E Stevenson ire both hiphly Intelligent, honorable men.

Adlni Stevenson is » Bloomington native, a close friend, a cnlleazue, one of the owners of thi* newspaper. He is a man for whom we have ureat admiration and respect. On Ihe basis of his fine admlmslrnllve record m Illinois we wish WP roilld endorse him, without reservation, lor the. presidency of the United States, Bui Arilai Stevenson ha? one preat handicap. He li the candidate ot a partj which has been in control of our national government lor 20 years —i party which, under Hari-y Truman, has set all-time records lor.sriendinB. scandal and Inefficiency and hse dragged respect (or government to 1U lowest point In our history. There has heen much generalized ii>IV »bout "need (or R chariKP," Here are some concrete changes we believe (he people want: The. people want a chance from srovernmenl by crony. They have had enough of the VaURlmnn and their ilk. The peoplp want a chance from dishonesty In office, whether It be petty larceny or major crime. The people want a change from extravagant "welfare" spending in an era of lull employment snd federal deficits. The peoplp wanl a chanae from centrahza'ion o[ government. They have Ir-arned that federal grants and federal aid are costly both In dollars and in loss of local control. The people waul a chancre from the concept that eovernment exists lor special croups, such as Ihe Political Action Committee of the CIO, which spends millions of dollars at campaign time' and must "clear" anv candidate for office.

The people waul a chance from Ihe effort to put government In'n rompetltion with private enterprise, such as (he snciali/al.lnn o( the power industry. They want no more confiscation o! private properly. The people waul a change from pcr-crution of those who would fxpose Communism n-hlle re- fusinc to do whal could be don* lo drive Communists, and lellow-travelers from places of public Can Adlii Rtevensoti and the lleinocralic party brirg about these chances or can they only come ohoul by a chance of party this fall?
