Kaymond K Baldwin's decision to permit his name to again, he placed in nomination as the standard bearer of the Ko- 7.>ublican party in this state. "U'c Tievur for one moment doubted the .sincerity of his announcement that he wished to withdnuv from politics nnd return to private practice. Many of his close friends tried desperately to get him to change his mind, but he was adamant to all their pleas. What then made him change his mind? In oar opinion, it was the peupk> of the state of Connecticut. X"t cvwi the governor himself had any idea that he had such a hole! on his people. This was re- vealed'only when the flood of letters, telegrams and telephone calls began to pour into his'Vjfl'ifC after, his intended retirement was announced. ]f r-vcr thorp was any quest ion as to who was the Xo. 1 Kepuhlienn in the state' tliis latest demonstration by the .Republican rank and file should definitely settle the question. It might, once nnd Tui' all, even settle that controversy that appears to exist among the G. 0. P. leaders. . LOADED WORDS Carllon K. Matson, former newspaper editor and now public relations cmmselor .in New York, made a recent address to editors of house- organs. 'He stated that in n survey of labor mid leftwing papers •for the past four months, approximately 06' per cent of the comment on the words '•'Free .Kiiterprise" was antagonistic. He called ,thc phrase "a dead battle cry, if industry wished to win --its battles." He urged business to write in smarter tciTns. This is, of couse, because the words have* been abused and warped out of their original meaning. The worker lias heard " KYco Fjntcrprise" used as a slo- jjan—ur a red- herring—too often by those who merely wanted more freedom to exploit the worker. But the worker himself would dislike very much, to put it mildly, to Jose his right of free enterprise to start a little business of his own if he wished to do so. Fre.odom to better yourself by your own efforts.was what the words used to mean. That is the democratic method, lint that freedom must be subject to (lie limitation of not hurting some one else in the- process, which is oft.on forgotten. In a presidential year words are apt to bo slung around with much emotion and little regard to their real meaning or historical development. It's a good idea, when argument waxes warm, to thin a minute, occasional!v, about words. CALMNESS 'It may be that this (.nation is getting less enthusiastic politically. There doesn't seem to be the old-time interest in high-sounding oratory. The spcoch- making with .K'ndyard Kipling, in his tour of America half a century ago. described as one of the most ama/.ing manifestations of human behavior that he had ever witnessed, is seldom hoard now. Politicians' are'" calmer, and so are preachers. The tumult and the shouting dies, and we develop a comparative calmness not. too far removed, vocally, from the English and Canadian level. Does this mean that, as a nation, wo are getting old anil tired:' Not necessarily.' It may merely signify that we're growing 'up, so that, it seems less and less -nocessarv to shout at each other.
