For the past, year--and even before the present, organization on ihe campus was formed--a group of students nt the «tate university were busy inviting the candidates for various offices to appear on the campus to make a speech to the stu- denti, and follow this up with a (juestion ·nd answer period. And what questions were anked! They often were straight and to the point w f t h no equivocations asked or expected. Several campaigns ngo sump of Ihe students banded together and invited a , number nf candidates to (he. campus. The response was rather heartening, on the part of the candid.ilPS, t h a t is. They csme to the schools, appeared for a t a l k at the Student Union, and followed t h i s up by allowing questions from t h e audience. This past spring several ramp, lo Fayetteville upon mvilation of Ihe young men and women, spoke rather briefly, and t h e n went, intp the question and answer period. One r tm'o others who were invited never ?ot around to accepling--Ihe students in- I'olver) thoutrht in some cases the refusal ;vas purposely carried n u t , considering :hat the candidates a c t u a l l y were "afraid ,'o be queried too closely by t h e alert stu- fcnts. At any rate, the course \ hat. Chancellor rancis Cherry f« pursuing in his present i!d for nomination as Arkansas governor, not entirely new. The statewide hroad- ast, of course, Is now. but. the question nd answer theme hasdbeen;practiced on he campus for several j'ean. Only Itst spring one of the candidates fir governor in the first, primary told his rsteners that he was doing "a very damrer- us thing, standing up here and l e t t i n g ·ou ask me what you plensr. It can he very langerous from the standpoint nf a caii- lidate," Nevertheless, he accepted (ho merles and he answered as best he could. V few times he was honest enough to pay rankly that he "didn't know" the nswers. Another candidate for governor used Tactically the whole occasion In answer uestions, spending only a fpw m i n u t e s of he time for some remarks of his own. Some of the questions were personal and ome were sharp, but he kept his aplomb nd he answered truthfully and to the oint. The students had the right Idea: They ruly wanted to know how the men run- ing for office really felt about issues of he day, and they learned a good deal from he question and answer periods. They ime to believe, too, rightly or wrongly, Nat the men who wouldn't place them- slves before them in such a position prob- bly had somthing to hide. It seems to us t h a t t h e young men and ·omen who sponsorTM! these appearances had something." They may have been hist little ahead of their times, but t h e y ' h a d he right idea all along. THE WASHINGTON Merry-Go-Round By DREW KAMOM Washington--It It probably no accident that the planners In th» Kremlin have choitn the most hectic of all American election summers to do some of their ugliest nose-thumbing. Election years In the U.S.A. are always watched mosl carefully by thone In Europe who have'something ominous to put across. It was no accident, for Instance, that Mussolini, Hitler, and Japan ganged up in the fall of 1B3«--an election year--tn start unofficial «uh- marlne w a r f a r e In the Mediterranean while Japan was pushing farther Into China. Roosevelt called » conference in Brussels to try to stop the Japs, but worried politicians, Including Cordell Hull, finally induced him to pull his punches. II was also no accident that Hitler picked the 'lection summer of Wfl to drive into France and try to take England. He knew that American isolationists would do their best to tie Roosevelt's hand. And had It not been for Roosevelt's courage In bucking the tide In Congress and sending arms to England, a Nail government might have ruled the British Isles. * * * Likewise, It is probably no accident that the Kremlin is m a k i n g some of ils most telltale moves this summer--at a lime when the American public is I h i n k i n g about Ihe heal, summer vacations, anrl who will he Ihe next president of the United Stains. Here are some of the moves spurred on by Moscow at tiiis lime: 1. Reported lesl of the first Russian hydrogen bomb. If this is true, then the Soviet is ahead of us in developing the H-bomb. Bruno Ponterorvn, who escaped behind ihe Iron Curtain, is reported lo he the scientist who developed if. Of course, Ihese reports could be mother part of the war of nerves. But If true, a hydrogen bomb in Russian hands will seriously upset th» balance of mllilary and diplomatic power in Kurone. For nations like to he on the side of the nation with Ihe greatest power, and so far our atomic power has been overwhelming. 2. Possibility that. Iran will go Communist. Iranian riols and the demand t h a t the American arms mission pack up and leave Is no accident. Of course, incredible State Department and Ri-it- l»h stupidity have played right Into Russian hands. Rut Communist agents, who now swarm all over Iran, are rapidly bringing about a situation where the shah will have to abdicate, and Iran w i l l f a l l inlo Red hands like a rioe plum. When thai lime comes. Communist influence \f bound lo m a r c h down through neighboring nil-rich Iran, to oil-rich Arabia, to strategic Kgypt and the Suez Canal. Thus, the Soviet hy working around Greece and Turkey, may circumvent the billions of American money se.nt into Greece and Turkey under Ihe Truman due- trine 1,1 block off Russia from the Medllcrranean. 3. Fren?.lcd Sovicl rearming of East Germany. This was spurred on pat My by our pushing of a Wesl European army. It Is also why thousands of German refugees are fleeing into West Germany. They want tn escape conscriplion inlo (he Dcd Army. Rut this rush lo build up an East German army has brought great consternation lo olher Germans regarding the most I m p o r t a n t , farslghled project Furope has seen since IflTll Ihe unity of French and German troops under one flag. * * * On tnp of these, are some other factors al- trlbulable more to had lurk or American stuoidi- ty t h a n to Soviet astuteness. While the men in the Kremlin can'l take rredil for them, they rnr- talnly are benefiting from them. Mere they are: A. The economic Illness of Groat nritnin. This goes hand-ln-hand with the split in the Labor party and the Increasing strength of the cut-loose-from-Amerlc» group. What's happened In England is exadlv wlial's been happening In Ihe Unlled Stales. England now has an isolationist party. It's somewhat comparable to the Isolationists led hy Senator Taft and Colonel McCormick, except lhal. being labor leaders, they don't belong lo the same economic strata. Neverlheless. they urge w i t h increasing vigor and increasing popularity t h a t England can't pay for heavy rearmament and must go il aloue. While this might save us a lol of money. II would also wipe out our air bases In Firitain and pull the props out from under our goal of Kuro- peji'i unity against Communism. B. The wabbly siluation In France. Whal most people don'l realise Is that American subsidies, both under the Marshall plan and laler under the North Atlantic pact, long have kept midiile-of-the-road leaders of France in power. We have long benefited from a loose alliance between the Catholic leaders of the middle, the non-Communist leaders of labor, and small busi- nesimtn nf the middle. The chief factors keep- Ing them together are fear of Communism plus the fact that the French government could balance its budget through subsidies from the United States. While these hnve not been large compared to the tolal French budget, thev represented the margin that kept the middle parties in power. Today Congress has drastically cut this margin, and France may he torn between the Communist left and Ihe Fascist right of anti-American General de Gaulle. This comes at a time when the Kremlin Is pushing its propaganda harder thxn ever and when we appear to be w i t h i n gunshot of attaining the great goal of a European army. All these things also come at a t i m e when the American public is bored stiff w i t h world problems and when it was difficult to squeeze a line of F.uropean news Into the papers during They'll Do It Every Time u 5i "You Haven't Been the Same Since the Convention" the Chicago convention?, rvrn w i l h a crowbar. Nevertheless, this imdnubterily is why the Kremlin has s t i f f o n M its truce talks in Korea, why i n f l a m m a t o r y pop tors have been tarked up in Mnsrn\v shmvinti American planes shot rinwn by the Reds, and why the Moscow radio has stepped up its hate-America program to a new pitrh. In hricf, wr nrp p r r f t y sum f n f a r e more trouble abroad t h i s summer and fall--regardless of politirs, the heat, and our own desirp to be Jet alone. Bennett Cerf A Polish journalist, back in Warsaw a f t e r a brief journey to Moscow, was asked, "Well, is Ihe Soviet really in such wonderful shape? Does the subway now extend sixty miles? Is every worker living in a new house with radio and air-conditioning? Is there a pile of atom bombs in the Kremlin? Are the farmers all happy and prosperous?" "Yes, yes," agreed the journalist. "All these things I saw with my own eyes." An old grayheard then asked, ''And where is your companion 1/znace? Why did he not return wilh you from Moscow?" "Al.-is." sighed the journalist. "Ignace is in a slave labor camp in Siberia. Unfoflunately he did not seem to see all these things!" * * * The absent-minded professor was dining at the depn's house. Somebody asked, "Professor will you pass the nuts?" "1 suppose so," said the professor sadly, "but I really ought to flunk the lot of them." * * * A well-fed gentleman was emerging from the swank Pavilion Restaurant when a beggar seized him by ihr srm and murmured hurriedly "I too once ale in fine places like this. Now I must beg you for a quarter for a cup of coffee and a hot dog. A unique catastrophe has laid me low " "Such as?" asked the well-fed one as he waited for his limousine to draw up! "Such as a motto " said the beggar. "Yes. sir, a motto. It hung above my desk and it read, 'Think Fast. Work Hard. Act Decisively.' I followed it religiously. 1 waxed richer and richer. And then . . . and then some darn cleaning woman burned my motto " * * * When .Toe Laurie. .Ir.. co-aulhor with Abel Green of "Show Biz," was in Chicago. Fanny Rutcher asked him if he would deliver a talk lo the Society of Midland Authors. "Sure; how much do they pay?" answered the practical- minded Mr. Laurie. "It's for free.' Miss Butcher told him. Joe. after due reflection, quipped, "It's a considerable cul--but I'll take i!." Questions And Answers Q-- How did the channel in the East River receive the name Hell Gate? A -- It may have been named hy the early Butch settlers of New York because of its swift current and rough reefs. There is also a belief that the name came from the Dutch "Hellejjat" as the whole of the East River was once known. Q-- When was the newspaper first used for advertising in this country? A-- The first newspaper advertising in f h e American Colonies appeared in the Boston News- Letter in 1704. Q-- When did the Democratic Parl this name? A-- The Democratic Parly really began wilh the election of Andrew .lackson in 1828, when the party look its present name. Q-- What is the piirnocg of fhe Binet-Simon lesl?
