Evolution of an Umbrella

Churchill's Future
N VIEW of our presidential election this fall,
many inquiries have been made as to the
current political situation in England.
The chief difference is this: In England, a
temporary truce exists between the two large
political parties, the Conservative and the So-.
cialist (Labor) groups. The leaders of these
two parties have agreed, for the purpose of
presenting a united front against Hitler, not to
press for a general election nor to disturb the
representation of either party in Parliament
during the war.
In effect the truce means that the Conser-
vative leadership will not present a candidate
in opposition to a Labor candidate in a con-
stituency where the seat in Commons is held
by Labor. Similarly, the Labor party does not
contest constituencies held by the Conserva-
The effect of this arrangements is to mini-
mize party bickering and strife and to help
eliminate politics from the war effort. In gen-
eral, the truce has worked fairly well. The Con-
servatives or Tories, if you prefer the latter
"esignation, are well pleased because they have
a clear majority in Commons and Churchill's
regime as Prime Minister is in no real jeopardy
so long as they can keep the balance of power.
The Labor party is less enthusiastic about the
truce but since two of its ablest leaders, Ernest
Bevin, Minister for Labor, and Herbert Morri-
son, the Home Minister, are members of the
powerful War Cabinet, it will probably stand
at least until the end of the war with Ger-
In a few instances, candidates of the small
and fading Liberal and Commonwealth parties
have contested by-elections in constituencies
where vacancies have occurred through death or
resignation. Here and there they have won but
usually because of conditions and circumstances
peculiarly local.
HOW LONG will Winston Churchill survive
as Prime Minister?
I took the liberty of questioning a prominent
British labor leader, a man for whom I came
to entertain the highest respect. Here is his
"It must be borne in mind that, to the
average man in Britain, there are two Chur-
chills. One is the Churchill who was 'in the
wilderness' for years, repeatedly and bravely
warning the country of what was coming and
doing hishbest to wake it up to a sense of its
danger; the Churchill who rallied the Brit-
ish after Dunkirk; the Churchill who has
been, and is, a very great war leader. That
is one Churchill and that Churchill is popular
amongst all classes.
"But there is another Churchill-the Churchill
who fought the workers in the general strike of
1926; the Churchill who pushed through the
Trades Union Act of 1927; the Churchill who is
so manifestly uninterested in domestic prob-
lems during the war and whose veto on con-
troversial legislation means that nothing gets
done of which the Tories disapprove; the Chur-
chill who stepped, dwn from his great position
as leader of the British to become leader of the
Tory caucus which, for 10 years, had kept him

I' Bather
Be Right
By Samuel Grafton

NEW YORK, June 15-I picked up much talk
in Virginia and Washingtpn about the "Texas
As everybody knows, we elect our Presidents,
not directly, but through the medium of Presi-
dential electors, a group of important nobodies
in each State, who solemnly go through the
flummery of selecting the President they want,
after they themselves have solemnly been elect-
ed in November on a pledge not to vote for
anybody else. These electors run under a party
designation, and most of them are nice, harmless
types who dearly cherish little ceremonial tasks
of this character.
Usually, they have served their party faith-
fully, and are entitled to some kind of reward,
but they are too well off to need a public job.
I suppose some sort of certificate of election
goes with the modest duties and scant emolu-
ments of this type of work; it is probably framed
and hung on the office wall in order to knock
the eye out of clients and visitors forever after.
I visualize the typical elector as the kind of
man who likes to take charge of picnics and
The "Texas plan," cooked up by opponents
of Mr. Roosevelt in the big state, calls for the
Electoral College to "assert its independence,"
just as if that body of nonentities had desires,
rights, life, etc., and was anything but a
decrepit relic.
The thought is that if the Democratic Na-
tional Convention does something the Texas
anti-Rooseveltians don't like (and I leave it to
you to guess what that would be, yuk, yuk) then
the Texas Democratic Party would nominate a
slate of unpledged electors who would be free
to vote for anybody at all for President. Thus,
even if 90 percent of Texas Democrats were
for Mr. Roosevelt, that would do them no good;
they would vote the Democratic ticket, but the
Presidential electors so elected could turn around
and cast a complimentary vote for, say, John
Nance Garner for President, throwing the elec-
tion to Mr. Dewey.
THE VOTERS would be given the privilege of
voting, but voting would have been reduced to
an innocent and harmless exercise, like taking

We Need De Gaulle,
GEN. CHARLES DE GAULLE, the head of the
French Provisional Government, has a num-
ber of soldiers who are willing to follow his
leadership. His soldiers are the French patri-
ots who managed to avoid the clutches of
traitorous Petain and his brood of vipers. They
are soldiers for democracy.
The Fighting French Armies are not fighting
on their home soil, because General De Gaulle
wants recognition as the leader of liberated
France until the people can indicate their
He fights to fight for France and, incidentally,
a victory of the United Nations. It seems to
us we need battlers for freedom, especially if
they have given their word to establish a gov-
ernment of the people.

Under this plan, with which South Carolina
bigwigs as well as Texas bigwigs are flirting
the fiction of the Electoral College would be-
come fact, while the fact of local preference
for Mr. Roosevelt would become fiction.,
It will be seen at once that this scheme
is of the same order as, and belongs in the
same picture with, the previous effort to crip-
ple the right of soldiers to vote. The pattern
of repression now takes a new turn: if you
can't succeed in keeping Americans from voting,
perhaps you can succeed in making their votes
meaningless. The search is on for a strictly
Constitutional reason as to why people may not
have their own way.
I don't think the Texas plan has a chance,
but some of Mr. R's opponents ought to realize
what a spectacle they make, dipping into histo-
ry in a frantic search =for ancient, moldering
gadgets with which to cut down the amount
of voting, or else distort its impact. If states'
rights don't get you, the Electoral College must!
Dead hands are being raised up to stop live
Americans from exercising their rights. The
men who are doing this kind of thinking are
the same men who keep yammering bitterly
that nothing in America must be allowed to
change while our soldier boys are away. No.
Daddy just lost his vote, that's all.
