Main _ (adv.) CoasTMethodist Worker To Talk Again and again as men in congress who voted wet or dry as the case may be, but who had personal convictions to the contrary, seemed to stultify themselves in the minds of thoughtful constituents, I have heard the apologetic defense offered—that it is the way of politics, and that the end justifies the means. Objectivity Demanded But the demand for objectivity and disinterestedness even at the cost of a career in politics has not ceased, and more, than any other factor it led to the upsurge of sentiment for Wendell Willkie's nomination last June. Here was a man who did not come out of the ranks of the politicians and who could be expected, therefore, to deal forthrightly and honestly with questions as they arose. The impact of a political campaign with its multitude of speeches and the difficulties of learning about a lot of issues all at once put Wendell Willkie at a disadvantage. He made mistakes, but these did not cost him the election. Too large a group of voters saw in the Republican party an Isolationist bloc which would hamstring co-operation with England. Today that same handicap comes out clearly as the Republican party appears divided. Now Wendell Willkie, seeing the opposition and thinking only of another nomination in 1944, could have trimmed and compromised and floundered and taken no position at all. According to the rules of politics, that would have been wise strategy and splendidly selfish. It meant taking no risks or chances—the customary advice followed by politicians. Makes Great Decision But Wendell Willkie made the most important decision a public man can make—a decision sincerely to sacrifice possible political advancement and stand by his convictions. The real reason why so many persons in political life are afraid to be courageous is i because they value the political ijob ahead more than they do any- ejse. Their minds are * more on the prize and his work among Mexicans.' orchestra will orities of the electorate who see through the sham and insincerities of political behavior. Mr. Willkie said to friends last December that he felt the aid-to-Britain issue was the biRRest thine before the country and that if it would increase his opportunity to persuade his fellow citizens of that point were he to renounce now any ambition for the 1944 nomination, he cladly would do so at once. And someday he will. For he has discovered something: bicKer than public office, bigger than the prestige of being a president of the United States — he has discovered that truth and obedience to conscience can be evaluated and honored by the people even as they reproach opportunism and the tricks of modern politics. The former Republican presidential nominee was amazed when in his preconvention campaign Lhere was such an outpouring of letters in his behalf. He was puzzled by it. He said h« was sure | it was impersonal and that he must be "ahead of a trend." When he was defeated last November that same outpouring of letters continued. He had been beaten for office, but he was still the leader of millions who looked upon him as a natural spokesman of the inarticulate, helpless individual citizen who for years has been trying to tell the politicians that maybe there is such a thing as an independent, intelligent, and understanding vote which is tired of platitudes and hypocrisy and wants the fresh air of courage and conviction to come into the discussion of public questions. What A Contrast! What a contrast Wendell Willkie made in that committee room! All the artifices of politics and personal attack were used against him to no avail. He stood his ground. He laughed off the words spoken In the heat of the campaign. The people had chosen Mr. Roosevelt. That phrase — "He'» my President now" — from Mr. Willkie's lips was American sportsmanship and nonpartisanship combined. For with the world aflame and American boys already in the train- ins- camps the problem is not political, but how to keep war from our shores. Some will disagree with Mr. Willkie's belief that aid to Britain will help to keep us out of war, but few can deny that an extraordinary example of self-sacrifice and courage has Just been given te the Congress of the United States by a private citizen who risen above the Intrigues of Kyrene Mexican play a sacred concert. The Rev. R. O. Wildman, pastor of the Buckeye church for two years, resigned recently, and no permanent pastor has been obtained. o Crash Injures Mail Carrier WICKENBURG, Feb. 14—Mabel Caywood, 29 years old, Morristown rural mail carrier, suffered cuts and bruises on her face and arms this afternoon when the mail truck Sunday School Parley Awaited MESA, Feb. 14—The Maricopa Stake Sunday school will hold a union meeting Sunday, it has bee_n announced by Rulon T.
