Ptge 4 otyr Saijfoian Editorial" City's Progress Depends In Part On Men At Council Table The .nation's leading industrial and financial experts are unanimous in the belief that East Hams County, heralded as the miracle section of the nation, will experience an era of fabulous growth during the next few years that will rank the area high in the list of the world's industrial capitols. And with current trends indicating irrefutably that opinion is correct. Bay-town is in a position to capitalize immeasurably on the results of that, pleasant prognostication. For Bay-town to reap the maximum benefits of the expansion planning—long-range —careful planning will be necessary, and you the voters of Baytown are the ones who must elect those men to the helm of the city. Men with vision, foresight and firm belief in the future of the city will be needed to plot the future of the area that is geographically located to reap the.most bountiful harvest of tne era of industrial expansion. The future planners must visualize the city growing by leaps and bounds in population, industrial firms, and paralleling bust- ncssses, and must lay the groundwork for coping with traffic, building and policing problems tha: will naturally come with growth. , It it: a citizen's duty to go to the polls on city election day, and cast his ballot for the man or men whom he firmly believes capable of laying the administrative groundwork for the future Baytown. Americans take full advantage of the right to criticize elected officials, but do citizens have the right to condemn or criticize those actions if they did not cast ballots in the elections that put them in office? When an official inadvertantly blunders, the hue and cry goes up "he's incapable." Do^s the condemnation come from a citizen who cast his ballot against the so-called "incapable." or does it come from a person who evaded the polls at the election saying "there's only one contested race so why should 1 vote" ? Or when some official makes the move that results beneficially for the city, the complimentary phrnze, "he's a good man", is heard. Did .your vote at the last election help put him there? lu short, if a citizen neglects his voting duty, he is, in effect, letting the other voters name the men who will run his city. Would any businessman sit idly at home and let others hire a manager for his personal business? Hardly. And there is no difference, because the city is just one big- business in which all residents are partners. Every resident helps foot the bills, enjoys the benefits and suffers the defeats. Even qualified, public-minded citizen also parti-J capates in naming the heads of this business, only if he votes at the city elections. The ballot is your voice in city business,] it. is your privilige and duty to cast it, regardless of whether you have some person-] al interest in a particular candidate or raceJ Eight balloting places will be open froni 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. Tuesday, and every qualified voter in the city can find time to vote during the 32-hour span. The public .spirited citizens of Baytownj who are striving for a record turnout at the polls urge you to join the march to the polls.

There are two schools of thought. One is that it is the lack of water and the resulting unwashed sme'.i of the people. The other is that it is the tobacco which is smoked—probably it is some of both.

John Foster Dulles, the .secretary of State, is continually in the headlines—•magazine and otherwise; his brother Allen is not. Alirn Dulles, head- of Central Intelligence, operates arv agency which tries to stay out of the headlines, has the job of reporting to the State department and the Pentagon on the strength of Russia and her satellites, plus the (.'anger of war any place in the world. Recently the Duller brothers had an unpublicizrd clash. Allen went to see his brother John with an assistant, and during the course of their visit, told oldcr°"t}*r"o t h e r John that he thought he was wron;; in making -speeches that Russia is losing out in the Cold War. John Foster looked displeased. But the younger Dulles continued to reprove his older brother. Foster's speeches, he said, bad made it appear taut the United States was not in trouble. Cn the contrary, the Russians were making headway and had us in real trouble. Foster looked flustered. Finally he told his younger brother that his job was to evaluate and report on Intelligence, not advise the secretary of State on his speeches.
