Now that he wm-S to our gtate, not only as a general of treat fame and a military man held in the highest esteem, but as a candidate for president of-the United States on the Republican ticket, we must feel that we are aljrnally honored. It isn't often that either a five star general or a presidential candidate pays us a visit, even if only for a few hours, and makes a speech in our capital oily. Whether we want the general as president or not, most of us will surely admit that he is a forceful man of high character .who doti his party credit as Its rep- ^reseutatlve as candidate for so high an office. And the great majority of Arkansas will feel that the general's visit among ui.is something truly snecial. ^H* is welcome indeed. Job Well Done The Springdale Memorial Hospital adds much to the ability of this section of the state to ore for Its sick and Injured. Dedicated. Sunday at special services,, the hospital will be open for patients next Monday. The new structure is as modern and vp to date as man can fashfon, and all the wry latest type equipment is included in the furnishings. It affords medical science the best that is available, and to patients it offers a place of convenience not easily surpassed. ! One thing about the people of Sprhig. jlal«--when tney?V* job, they do it well. The new Memorial floipital it proof of that. ' ·: I $=· ; Can He Be Serious? Reading of Jeff Speck's campaign for governor of Arkansas, we find it difficult ;o believe he is as serious as he sounds in naking a race for the off tee. We recall his ippearmnce «t the University last spring, Mfore an audience of students who asked tin a number of questions. In reply to a iliiery as to what he would do if he were Elected governor, he frankly said he fis;- ired there wasn't any chance of that', and [ihat In: reality.h« only hoped to advance he national ticket's chance in Arkansas y Reeking the governorship; After hearing him a few months ago, Ve just can't believe he's changed so much ince that appearance that he honestly exits to defeat Francis Cherry for the 'ice. He's too smart a young man for it. . : · Jack Joyce, candidate for congressman f this district on the Republican ticket is !*ing for his slogan: "Your best choice is ' jke and Joyce." A wag; uptown » day or ja ago suggested that Rep. J. W. Trimble, Running for reelection as national repre- KJcntative, might also adopt a slogan, per- riaph something like thte: "Make the GOP ·iremble with J. W. Trimble." K Trouble with candidates these days is -,]jere are more riding rails than splitting ' THE WASHINGTON Merry-Go-Round »y DM* PEARSON While Drew Pearson is on a vacation, the Washington Mtrry-Go-Round Is being written by several distinguished guest columnists, lodsy'1 being Rep. Edith Kourse Rogers of MasMChusetts. Washington--It is well.said that what is past is prologue, but it a also well to observe that for the present to engage in quarrel over tht psst is to Jeopsrdlie the future. During the debatable days of the nominees for all the American people want clear, crisp decisions regarding the real, vital, Important issues confronting us at this time and nat a discussion of affairs past which are finished and cannot be changed. The Issues we are concerned with domlnste and control our lives now and our future depends on their correct solution. These Issues concern foreign and domestic policies which are strongly and interdependent^ woven together like the steel wire of a submarine net. Failure to meet the challenge of any of these problems squarely and successfully is reflected upon the personal life and freedom of every individual In our land. Throughout the nation the American people deeply realize the significance of these Issues. They are looking for the right answers, the cost and sacrifices involve/!, rather than to personalities and their past accomplishments. The stakes are high and the time too serious for generalities and platitudes. The American people are desperate for decisions, for plans of action which will revive their hope, restore their faith, renew (heir courage and reestablish their honor. The leadership that faces up'to the issues courageously makes the decisions and precisely produces the best formula of action, is the leadership which will be Intrusted with the destiny of our republic for the next four years. Fur example, there Is, nothing to be gained In debating the responsibility for Korea, who got us there/now ve got there and why we are there. The fact is we are there at this moment. As a nation we are committed. The Issue Is how can we get out with honor, and when? Certainly American mothers cannot be called upon Unceasingly to yield up their sons and jaughteri in a cruel, endless "police action" at containment, rather than a clear-cut achievement of victory. There Is no such thing as a halfway or a JO per cent war. It is all or nothing. For Korea (hero is no decision to be found in the middle of the roid or to the left or to the right. If democracy Is to live In this our land, surely the youth must be freed of the shackles of constant military demands and permitted the liberty to plan their lives and their times. It is time for a decision on Korea. Panmunjom, if it were not tragic,- would be a ludicrous fiasco. * * * Again there Is nothing to be gained for the present and future by looking back into the past and pointing fingers of responsibility for our tragic error of permitting Russia to gain doml- nahct over most of Asia, Eastern Europe and permitting Soviet control of Austria, Poland, Hungary, part of Germany and other areas In Western Europe. The fact is that due to our vacillit- Ing policy the red flag of Communism has been planted over the ramparts of the world to such an extent that freedom everywhere is threatened, even our own liberty here at home. Th Issue Is not the fact or the responsibility of this existing situation. The issue is what can America do to alter this balance of power and achieve a dependable peace in the; world. The issue Involved here Is a challenge ~, to every American.and to free men everywhere. The new leadership of next January must face this Issue. How and in what way? These are questions we want the answers to now. These answers require careful planning. We cannat be hopelessly involved in a collective undertaking in which we find ourselves holding the major responsibility with authority reposed in the hinds of others. Nor can we become committed to any understaklng involving an Inexhaustible expenditure of our own material resources, for to weaken America and reduce it to tiitt level of mediocrity would be to destroy ireedcm, the very thing we are striving to ssvi. * * * It is time for a decision. The American people are waiting for the. new leadership to address themselves cogently and succinctly to this issue of pedce and how It can be dependable obtained. They want to hear their conclusions based upon their knowledge and experience. They don't want to hear such generalities and platitudes as the middle of the road is the proper course to follow. To say that the great dominating controlling Issue of this campaign is the "organization of peace" Is to assume the conclusion. Everyone is in favor of peace, just as everyone is opposed to sin. The pith of the matter is the method to be used. Though we want the result badly, we want to know the mechanics, the machinations necessary for this "organization of peace..'' We want to know these details now so that we can endorse or reject them while there still Is opportunity for choice. The middle of the road doesn't contain the answer. Neither does the left nor the right. These are academic. The lisue Is global, not national. Peace cannot be purchased, -the method of attainment must be molded by world leadership, bfied on *-: They'll Do It Every Tiny .~»-- By Jimmy Hado : '-j ru.

If this is done, there is no question but that the American people will make the right decision. If nourished with knowledge, cooperation, honesty, faith and trust In God and courage to solve every problem, our democracy will live. The prologue is over. It is time for the acts to be presented to the great American citizenry, who will consider both the players and the climax in the exercise of their judgment next November. The title of this presentation, certainly, Is not "The Middle Of the Road." It is, "The Time For Decision." How Time Flies Thirty Years Ago Today (Fayetteville Daily Democrat, September 1, 19!2) Armed 'guards Were this afternoon removed from the Fayette Junction Round House following the demand of rail workers that this be done. Hostleri and switchmen yesterday afternoon refused to bring out their engines as long as the guards were permitted to "annoy us as they have been doing."

Prltes for the Workers Association fiddlers contest tonight at the picnic grounds on Highway 71, south of town, will be a 48 pound sack of flour, a three pound can of coffee and a bushel of Irish potatoes, It has been announced. Tea Years Ato Today (Northwest Arkansas Times, September 1,1942) Opening a "Salute Our Heroes" celebration in which the motion picture industry throughout the nation will promote the sale of war bonds in an effort to reach the billion dollar quota for September, W. F. Sonneman, local theatre manager, has announced plans for a number of local events. One hundred students, representing every county in Arkansas will enter the University this · fall on scholarships of $100 each authorized by the board of trustees this year. Each county will have the same number of scholarships as it has state representatives. .

Questions And Answers Q--How many different plants are known? A--More than 250,000. Q--What is the first known newspaper? A--A court journal, Tslng Pao, published in Peking, China as early as the 500's, and continued until 1935. F OUISE WESTON and Aunt Ella had the sunny dining room to themselves. Harry had gone to his business, Ted to school. In the kitchen faint tinkling sounds reported that Eleanor was washing Ithe dlsnes. Aunt E|la dawdled over her toast and marmalade, grateful for a leisurely breakftrt Her unexpected arrival had been a godsend to Louise, grieving quite sincerely at Vincent's departure lor Paris. It had been so hard to sink back Into the seemingly futile round of housework from w h i c h be bad lifted her. Her trips around the t|ty with Vincent Had sh«wn her so vividly what she had missed. Wheo Aunt Ella had "dropped In f«r a little visit" oh the very d«y that Vincent was wiling, her welcome had been most cordial and ·Louise, dear, I thought at first you wore all'wrong," aald Aunt Ella, growing confidential in the atmosphere of peace and cheerfulness that pervaded the attractive mom. "I used to think you wen 'soft.' I was afraid your marriage had destroyed your sense of values, ·ut after I saw your children, I realise that you knew best Of course I, too, was building for the future, so we were really working tor the same ends In a different way. And perhaps you were wiser than I and chose the better.* ·Oh, Aunt Ella," Louise gasped in her surprise. -I don't think so at all. I think you've been wonderful. And It must be such · satisfaction to you to feel your lite has keen so worth while. I feel there's · real grandeur about the way you and some of the others give* youi Vves for UN l a i d A u n t Bit, amused by her niece's tardy « " ' '»ut MW, yeu ese, say ·r EdM Robin GwVKiisirisuiMnbi work is about done and what Is left to me? . You at least nave your family and will always have an interest in life." "Of course that's true, Aunt Ella, but it's hard to know how far you should go in suppressing yourself and in losing yourself in other people's lives. I sometimes feel I've never really lived at all. I've had to give up what meant so much to me--my art work--I've had to devote all my energies to making life smooth and comfortable for others. I begin to think that it was very wrong. The children of course had to be looked alter, and I don't begrudge them a minute that I gave them. But I wonder sometimes if 1 really had the: right to bury my own life, my own talents, so completely. Was It fair to Hsrry? If I had made a fuss at the beginning I think he might have given me more consideration. But 1 was afraid--afraid to spoil my bone." AUNT ELLA stirred her coffee A absently as she looked thoughtfully around the room. ·But, at least, Louise, you've been comfortable. Things have gone smoothly for you, haven't they? It's so peaceful here and It seems marvelous to me--Just to escape the constant turmoil and friction--* ·Oh, friction!" Louise frowned but resisted the Impulse to be Impatient "Of course, I try to avoid thai." Aunt Ella was Interested hut not entirely convinced that Louise had nay real reason for unhapplnete or restlessness. She carried the discussion no further, however, but maintained a cloet survey of UM entire household. Aunt Ella, at tost taking Louisa's Uttle services as · matter of course, began to wonder how bar niece c*uld t* so unfailingly calm aad cheerful. IM tail t gradual M- Htion "rising within her at Harry's complacent acceptance of his wife's devotion. It never seemed to occur to him that Louise needed anything more out Of life than to care for her home and family. The more she thought of Louise, hopelessly Imprisoned in domestic 'chains, the more angry Aunt Ellen became. "That's the sort of thing we've been fighting for," Aunt Ella told herself crossly. *To free women from slavery. But a woman's status in~ her own home depends so much on her personal relationship to her husband--and upon her own character. I wonder if BnancJal Independence would make a difference in every case." For a couple of weeks Aunt Ella enjoyed resting, dawdling in the morning, taking leisurely walks in the afternoon. Then she suddenly tired of it "Louise, Isnt there something I can do around the house?" she asked abruptly at breakfast one day. · · · 1UT there wasn't m u c h that Louise could suggest to calm her aunt's growing restlessness. "How can you stand It, Louise," Aunt Ella exclaimed, "to do the same things over and over? It's so monotonous. I b e g i n to feel stifled just watching you." Louise smiled. ·That's Just what I had to make up my mind to. It wouldn't seem to an outsider that I had msdt any sacrMces. But it's the monotony and the mental stagnation that gets on my nervet* A telegram arrived for Aunt Ella one morning and urgent letters from some of her co-workers. She was manifestly r e l i e v e d and pleased to be sent for. ·Louise, dear, I'm going west!" she cried excitedly. "After all, It's better to be tree and lomly, than penned up even In luxury. I feel Uke an old war-horse sniffing the smoke of battle. Pm tuning elf tomorrow. You've been a dear, Louise. If you ever get a chance to spread your wings, don't refute to do so from a misplaced sense of duty." Aad Aunt Ella was on her way. Today and Tomorrow *r WALTZ* urrxANN Washington - T h e r e are the best of reasons why there is so much interest in how the general and the governor are meeting their problems in taking over party leadership. These are the crucial questions of the campaign. They provide, far more than any speech, a significant practical test of the candidates themselves and of their ability to govern effectively. What is more it is on who emerges as dominant in each party that the character of the next administration and of the opposition in Congress as well depends. For the purposes of a political campaign it can be assumed that this country is not divided ideologically. It is the exception rather than the rule to find any public man admitting that on any of the great issues of foreign and domestic policy he differs in principle from any other public man. So if j one reads only the words of the prescriptions, the medicine will always seem to be more or less the same mixture of rhubarb and soda. But the words of the prescription do not tell the patient what he is actually going to find himself swallowing. That will depend on who is behind the counter when the prescription is made up. In 1932, for example, the Democrats were elected on a platform and after speeches which were strictly isolationist in foreign affairs and in domestic affairs were orthodox conservative. But what mattered was that the control of the Democratic party had been won by Roosevelt and the New Dealers. Since then the problem of party control has not until this year bothered, the Democrats. The succession from Roosevelt to Truman happened over three years before the party primaries and convention of 1948, and by that time, though there was some rebellion, Truman was in full control of the Immense powers of the presidency. But now, as Governor Stevenson has acknowledged, there is no more Important question In his campaign than whether he is leading the party or whether the party 'if in charge of him. The Republicans ought 16 be quite 'familiar with the struggle for party control. It hat been their main problem for 20 years - and especially tine* 1940, when 'under Willkie they made the first of their four successive attempts to reconstruct the party by replacing the leadership which had crashed in 1932. This year, then, the question is paramount in both parties. It is paramount in the sense that the struggle for control is the actuality with which and in which Eisenhower and Stevenson are moving. The drama is fascinating and momentous -- but not as yet as between Stevenson and Eisenhower. The audience is watching intently to see how well each can ride the horse on which he is mounted. After that will come the tone race. As of now, neither can take it as settled that he is firmly in the saddle. Both are still in the process of asserting their powers and of establishing their authority.. for neither belongs, so to speak, to the reigning dynasty of his party, and in relation to. the old party satraps, courtiers, bureaucrats and henchmen, both are intruders drawn from outside the palace and the inner circle of the favorites. Eisenhower is to Taft rather like General Naguib to King Farouk: not of the blood royal but for the present acclaimed by the bigger battali.ons. And Stevenson, one might say, is the scion of an older house -- once the only legitimate dynasty -- which fell, in fact was rudely deposed as out of late and too genteel, but is now being restored. For the new kings had produced no heir, and there i no crown, prince. Many practical consequences are flowing from tbt fact that both candidates are outsiders. The most important is that only one of them, the winner of the election, will be able to hold on to the leadership of his party..The loser must expect to lose all. his power and most of his influence within his party: he may, be lucky to be invited to speak at the 1950 convention. For the winning party will be run from the White House, and the new president, with his enormous powers, patronage and prestige, will for a while at least be the undisputed boss..But the losing party will be run from Congress by the senior senators and congressmen who have survived the defeat of their candidate. Eisenhower or Stevenson, whichever is the loser, will not be among the political survivors in Congress. Had the Republican candidate been Senator Taft, he would be conducting his campaign on the assumption that even defeated, he would still be Mr. Republican. Not so General Eisenhower. Only when and if he is elected, will he be able to make himself Mr. Republican. This is one of those facts which General Eisenhower and his friends cannot afford to overlook. For it explains the kind of pressure to which he has been subjected since his nomination. He was nominated, we must remember, not by acclamation but after a bruising fight and by the barest majority. The men he defeated in Chicago are the 1 very men who, if he is defeated in November, will be the. Republican party as it operates in Congress. In coalition with the Southern Democrats, which has worked quite well for years, they are a great power in the land. They did not like being defeated by Eisenhower, and it is not so easy for them to forgive and forget. For if Eisenhower is elected, they will be overshadowed by the White House; if, on the other hand, Eisenhower wer* defeated, it would not be too difficult for -let us say Dirksen and Mundt, to keep the discussion on a high plane--to console themselves with the powers and perquisites that go with being the authentic and undisputed leaders of the opposition party, That is'why General Elsen- hbw'er is' being advised, warned, and threatened by the men he defeated in July that they will defeat him in November, unless he helps them remain in control of the party in Congress. Their pressure is heavy. It is not a bluff. For there is much genuine doubt as to whether they personally have more to gain by Eisenhower's victory or by his defeat. General Eisenhower Is confront! ed, therefore, v/ith an exceptionally difficult problem: he is the nominee of a party in which a highly organized faction, long the dominant faction, cannot be counted on to be unreservedly in favor of his election. Hit is not, if I may say so, mastering this fundamental problem. His initial mistake, it seems 'to me, Is that he has accepted uncritically the formula that in order to be a successful president he needs a Republican majority to organize both houses of Congress. The formula is plausible, of course, but for him in his present situation it is a destructive fallacy. It Is, to begin with, not true that as president he could not carry out his measures without a Republican majority. The general has confused a Republican majority with an Eisenhower majority. In Congress, the Republicans, like the Democrats, do not vote as a unified party. Eisenhower as president would have to find his congressional support in a coalition of non-isolationist conservatives. He could not possibly find it among the Republicans alone. The formula, moreover.
