Outlawing Communists

II

DAILY
IFFICI AI

I

ANY ATTEMPT to outlaw the Communist
Party by removing it from the ballot
is poorly conceived and of doubtful value.
It is, first of all, necessary to recognize
that Communism can not be legislated out
of existence. Beliefs will not be suppressed,
nor will ideologies change because of legis-
lation. An outlawed Communist Party will
go underground, change its name, restate its
pohcy, and reappear on the ballot in a new
guise. What advantage is thus gained? Ob-
viously none. The choice then, is simply
between accepting an open and avowed
Communist Party or substituting a clandes-
tine one, masquerading under a new banner.
The ballot, moreover, provides the only
legal machinery for obtaining political con-
trol in this country. Thus, by denying the
ballot to Communists, their only legal means
to power is blocked. Manifestly, they would
be encouraged in the very thing which the
proposal currently being studied in the
House is supposed to prevent-a forceful
attempt, by unconstitutional -methods, to
overthrow the existing American govern-
ment. Keeping the ballot open, however, af-

NIGHT EDITOR: GAY LARSEN
I'D RATHER BE RIGHT:

fords Communists constitutional means of
instituting their own regime. If, then, they,
should acquire sufficient strength to carry
an election (an inconceivable contingency)
surely, there should be no cause to deny
an electoral mandate.
Even assuming that a removal of the
Communist Party from the ballot were an
effective check to its spread, the utility of
such a step is highly doubtful. Minor parties
serve an essential and integral function in
the American party system. Since the Civil
War, minor parties have often caused Re-
publicans and Democrats to adopt policies
later embodied in the great reforms. In
1872, for example, a group terming itself
"Labor Reformers" held its first convention.
Their platform included issues largely ig-
nored by the major parties; an eight hour
day for government employees, civil-service
reform, and abolition of contract labor in
prisons. Later, the Socialist Labor Party
launched a campaign for progressive inheri-
tance and income taxes, universal and equal
suffrage, and free education. Today, it is
the proud boast of the Socialists that virtu-
ally every plank of their platform adopted
at the end of the last century, has become
law.
Minor parties still retain their role in,
maintaining a healthy political atmosphere-
Only under their constant spur can the
party system move toward progress away
from sloth and stagnation.

De fenders of Democracy

By SAMUEL GRAFTON
ANYBODY WHO WANTS to take the title
of "defender of the democratic way of
life" can do so; there is no examination
which need be passed, no license which need
be secured in order to assume the proud
honorific. If you decide you are a defender
of the democratic way of life, then you are
one, especially if you have a good, loud
voice. As a result, there are almost as many
varieties of "defenders of the democratic
way of life" as there are ice cream flavors,
and perhaps at this time of world moral
crisis we need to discriminate among the
various kinds, and to begin to set up some-
thing like a sociology of defenders of the
democratic way of life.
The first rough grouping which comes
to mind is of statesmen who defend the
democratic way of life only at its points
of contact with organized Communism,
but who show a singular casualness
about letting the democratic way of
life defend itself against almost all
other dangers. These are the men (and
Congress is full of them) who last fall
took the position that we were not
called upon to defend the democratic
way of life against inflation; let the
two slug it out, they said; that would
be good for the democratic way of life;
toughen It up.
They fly into a tizzy of parental agitation
when the democratic way of life is men-
aced by one skinny little Communist; but
they show no nerves at all when the demo-
cratic way of life is menaced by, for ex-
ample, widespread labor discontent. Easy,
they say; use a few injunctions, pass some
new laws, bottle the discontent up. One
must almost admire the intrepidity with
which they send the democratic way of life
into unhappiness; it is like the unconcern
they show when they send the democratic
ON WORLD AFFAIRS:

way of life into a brawl with inflation, that
killer of order.
Yet there is something curious about
this defense only at the periphery, only at
the outer edges; it is like the defense of
a house, rather than of a living organism.
The emotions involved seem strangely like
those that go with a defense of one's prop-
erty, rather than those deeper feelings which
go with a defense of one's family.
What we need (as we develop our infant
sociology of the defense of the democratic
way of life) is to reserve a special classifica-
tion for those who are willing to go in for
a broader defense, a defense in depth, so
to speak, as compared with those who wish
only to post a few lookouts against Stalin
while the fight goes on, no holds barred,
inside.
Sometimes this deeper approach turns
up in unexpected quarters; there is
Senator Taft, for example, with his
new, uncomfortable feeling that this is
an ill-housed country, and his plan for
spending a billion a year to make it
less so. But the quarrel he is conducting
with his fellow Republicans on the mat-
ter is a wistful and a dull one; it does
not have the holy passion in it of the
fight against Russia, and nobody gets
sore. All our sicknesses, and all our
fears of each other and the world are
wrapped up in these varying conceptions
of defense of our way of life; and the
unanswered question of whether we are
something like a family, or merely con-
tenders within a ring.
He who assumed the posture of defender
of the democratic way of life would do well
to think it through first, and to determine
whether he is ready to defend it against
all malice and disease, internal and external,
or whether he is merely posted raffishly as
a guard, to say, "Sh! Do not disturb. There's
a fight going on inside."

MAN TO MAN:
Mine Disaster
By HAROLD L. ICKES
T IS EASY to understand the mixed emo-
tions of grief and rage that possessed
John L. Lewis when the news of the tragic
disaster at Centralia, Ill., reached him. Dur-
ing all of my dealings with Mr. Lewis I never
doubted his real concern that a hazardous
employment be made as safe as possible.
However, his order to the miners to abstain
from work for six days is not likely to
assuage the grief of the widows and children
of those whose lives were sacrificed to greed.
How much better it would have been if Mr.
Lewis had asked his miners to contribute
one day's pay to a fund for the widowed
and fatherless who, somehow, must go on
living.
The emotions of Governor Dwight H.
Green of Illinois were also mixed. However,
he paused long enough in his campaign for
the Republican nomination for Vice-Presi-
dent to order an investigation of all of the.
other mines in Illinois. Unfortunately for
him he knew about conditions at Centralia.

It appears that four of the men who worked
in this mine, on March 3, 1946, wrote a trag-
ically appealing letter to Governor Green
charging the Illinois Department of Mines
and Minerals with failure to enforce the
safety laws. They said to Governor Green:
"This is a plea to you to please save our
lives." How heartfelt this prayer was is evi-
denced by the fact that three of the four
signers of the letter were killed in the dis-
aster that they predicted. So Governor
Green, after the manner of the politician
that he is, tried to cover up his non-feasance
that resulted in the death of 111 miners by
ordering an "investigation." He might array
himself in sack cloth and sprinkle ashes
upon his head.
It would appear that, in Washington as'
well as in Springfield, Ill., politics have the
right of way. All out for the Vice-Presi-
dential race! Dead coal miners do not even
possess the power to vote. Live operators not
only have the vote, they possess influence
and have been known to make contributions
to campaign funds.

Now the small bank account is

less to say, it is impossible to meet
these with only ninety dollars a

not adequate to maintain good

gladly go out to teach were she
older and were there an inexpen-

my training has been directed to-
ward the idea that a baby's place
is home, away from crowds of
older children and adults, secure
it a clean, orderly world where
mother takes care of his needs and
shows her own child a life, happy,
contented and comfortable. It is
difficult, but possible to create
this world only with financial aid
from home in addition to the sub-
sistence now allowed.
Our problem is the problem of
thousands of others. We are will-
ing to work hard. We are eco-
nomical. We don't want money
for cars, entertainment, trips, fan-
cy food, furniture, and extras, we
want a decent, clean, simple way
of life free from unnecessary fi-
nancial worries. We must have
more than ninety dollars a month!

To the Editor:

[o the Editor:
FE ANTICS being performed in
current American politics are
nalogous to those of'a drunken
rew aboard a rudderless ship. The
irunks heatedly argue the cause
nd solution, do a great deal of
ame calling, sweat a, great deal,
nd on the whole look very ridicu-
ous. There is a point of differ-
mce in that the crew can sleep it
>ff and not find the situation any
vorse while Americans must relax
lue to the grave danger which is
present and has the potential of
becoming still worse. Some of the
ed baiters, performing their self
3rdained mission on a full time
basis, have gone so far out on the
imb that they, like the inebriated
rew, look very ridiculous indeed.
The Communists to date have ap-
peared just as foolish in their de-
fense of their legal rights. When
their official spokesman was giv-
en the opportunity to present his
party's views, with the privilege
of a premeditated statement which
had been denied to Eisler, he ap-
peared before the committee of
the House but bolted when they
asked him to state his real name.
He might have had some personal
reasons for not disclosing this in-
formation, which the House knew
anyway, but if he had the earnest
desire to present a bonafide case
then he couldn't have had a better
opportunity as his statements were
getting coverage by the nation's
press. Just as the revolutionist
spills the blood of many innocent
people so the counter revolution-
ist ruthlessly eliminates or dis-
credits many fine causes and or-
ganizations. The petty hate drive
is getting out of hand and will
have grave consequences unless we
as student citizens let our repre-
sentatives know that their infan-
tile play is becoming both obnox-
ious and dangerous to the general
welfare,

Soda Jerking
To the Editor-
WHILE READING Mary Ann
Young's letter in the Daily of
April 2, 1947, the following
thought occurred to me: "What
has become of that breed of young
people who, before the days of
P. L. 346 and 16, worked at a
part-time job while carrying a
full academic schedule to put jam
on their bread and buy needed
medicine for the baby?" True,
most of the students then didn't
have babies or even wives, but the
situation must be somewhat the
same.
I was'one of the lucky persons
who received his degree in 1941
just before going into the Army
in August. But that degree was
earned to a large extenlt by jerking
sodas in the Union taprooms. I
don't feel that it hurt me a bit
to have helped myself through
school. It is true that I didn't
have a small son at the time, but
had I been married, with or with-
out children, it would have been
I who worked to buy the jam and
medicine and not my wife.
I am a veteran of 54 months
service and have no quarrel with
those who advocate increased sub-
sistence, bonuses, etc. I merely
wish to put the above thoughts
before the readers of the Daily.

not only on its success in stopping the Red

Joseph Stalin-as Louis Fischer recently

The world has recently become aware of

During the war, our Administration tipped
