PAGE 1IXTEBN ALTON EVENING TELHORAPH FRIDAY, JANUARY II, 1550 Drama Found In British Vote MACKENZIE AP Foreign Affair* Annl.vit An atmosphere of nostalgic dra ttift surrounds the marshalling o England's political forces for nex month's general election. That election will determine Whether the country shall give approval to its_ five-year experl ment in Socialism and continue along the road into new fields, or whether It shall return to the capitalistic system under which I reached Its peak of Imperial great ness. As a leading actor In this grcn drama Winston Churchill ha: rushed hack from his winter vaca (ion In Island of Madeira to guide his Conservative forces in wha may be 'his last major pollllca battle. Here is one of the grcntes' figures In the long history of En« land — statesman, literary ginnt orator—the man who led the na tlon through "blood, toil, swen and tears" to victory In the work conflict—a 75-year-old war-horse charging headlong Into the fray once more. It is fitllnc Mini, Church il should play this role. He Is the bluest blood of the nobility — die-hard Tory who symboll/es England at the peak of her Imperla greatness. To his more elderly followers in particular, Churchill Is a lriil.\ heroic figure who conjures up visions of the "good old days". Churchill has rffllrgcrl the Socialists wilh throwing away that empire, and ho would halt thcii nationalization program which to him Is hateful and harmful. He would return to the days o£ private Initiative. Churchill would re-establish the theories o£ private enterprise. He has promised'to repeal the Socialist steel nationalization bill, and not to permit state ownership to go any further. Whether he would be able to achieve all his heart's desire If elected is perhaps open to doubt. One of the immutable iaws of Jlfe Is that you can't turn back the clock. And time has made in England's way of llfo many changes which can't be turned back. Neither Churchill nor anyone else could restore the empire to Its greatness of the days when India was the brightest jewel in the imperial crown. And nothing can restore to England I he days when the waxed rich by the simple expedient of importing raw materials from foreign countries, manufacturing those materials, and re-exporting the finished products at a ncut profit. Industrialization of those foreign countries has changed nil Uial. • However, this doesn't mean that Britain can't be pulled out of her present economic crisis and restored to prosperity.
