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 an* who could be expected, therefore, to deal lorthrightly 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 pnties 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 biggest thing 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 gladly would do so at once. And someday he wilL For he has discovered something' bigger 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 m his preconvention campaign there was such an outpouring of letters in his behalf. He was puzzled by it. He said he was sure it was impersonal and that he I must be "ahead of a trend." When he was defeated last Novembe that same outpouring of letter j^uv i>*,uu%.u **A1JJV1C 4JK2UC LJ1C most important decision a public man can make—a decision sincerely to sacrifice possible political advancement and stand by his convictions.
