The Independent Voters
And A Democratic Victory

Upturn in Washington

SHORTLY BEFORE the 1952 presidential elec-
tion someone connected with the history de-
partment made a hopeful forecast for the coming
election. The substance of his remarks was that
Adlai Stevenson would win the independent vote
and become the 34th president of the United
States.
He assumed and it is a safe assumption that the
independent vote is the key to winning or losing
for the Democrats and Republicans at each bi-
annual test of their respective platforms. However,
there was a serious flaw in his further reasoning
and it was this flaw that caused his prediction to
be incorrect. He seemed to think that the inde-
pendents were the intellectuals, the people who
read and study world and national problems and
ideas proposed to them at every election. Their
background would keep them from being influenced
by prejudices and the 'do as my father didism' that
plague many voters' thinking. He thought that
Stevenson with his logical, liberal and courageous
platform would appeal to these thinking people-
they became known as "egg-heads"-and a Demo-
crat would be in the White House another four
years.
Professors, men of science and the arts did
flock behind the former Illinois governor but
when the votes were tabulated Dwight D. Eisen-
hower with his cliches and continual vacillation
on the campaign issues had five million more
votes. Four years previously Harry S. Truman
had accomplished a presidential victory with
much the same type campaign.
There was little doubt that Eisenhower must
have won the independent vote and as disappoint-"
ing to idealists as it may be, the key fluctuating
group doesn't seem to be those on the history in-
structor's intellectual plane but rather those pri-
marily interested in easing the burden of their own
personal problems. Such things as a quick reduc-
tion of taxes interest them. These are the people
who fear but know little about the reasons for wars
and who because they never read past the head-
lines are easy victims for the shrieking about the
Communist threat and corruption when and where
the newspapers choose to publicize it. Considering
the continual changing nature of the Mid-West vote
the farmers also appear to be an independent ele-
ment.
When Stevenson attacked the campaign issues
he refused to paint rose-colored solutions for them
because he felt, and the last 18 months have borne
him out, none were available. He offered steps for
alleviating the disagreeable situations but his fore-
sight prevented him from promising Utopian re-
sults from his proposed platform. His liberal, well
grounded concept of the national and world situ-

ation would have made him an excellent leader of
the United States.
However, Stevenson and the Democrats will
never lead United States policy as the minority
group. To regain control of Congress this fall
and to put their candidate in the White House
in 1956 they will have to do one of two things.
Adlai Stevenson must sacrifice his admirable
principle of remaining above the slam-bang, some-
times illogical glorious phrase-like political cam-
paigning that unfortunately wins elections. He
must get out and concentrate on a negative cam-
paign relegating his positive program to the back-
ground. He must intensify his tearing at Repub-
lican mistakes and the relative inactivity of the
83rd Congress. He has ammunition-the growing
breach among the Western powers caused partial-
ly by the Republican's platoon system foreign pol-
icy, the McCarthy-Army fiasco, Eisenhower's in-
ability to deal with the farm problem and to use
a term made famous by the GOP, the 'mess' in
Indo-China. An occasional rehash of some of Eis-
enhower's 1952 campaign speeches might tend to
remind some people dt many unfulfilled promises.
These things must be kept in front of the
people's eyes to swing the vacillating independent
vote back to the Democrats.
The intellectuals behind Stevenson are already
behind the former Illinois governor because they
know he is a liberal leader who has the courage to
command respect both in the United States and
just as important in these times abroad. They will
not likely become anti-Stevenson if he should low-
er his campaign standards somewhat to get him-
self into office.
If Stevenson does not choose to become a slight-
ly irrational man for a few months and possibly
thereby chance a career as a. second Charles Fox
or Robert Taft (always the critic, never the leader)
then the Democrats must dig out a substitute to
lead their campaign. If health permits, former
President Truman might be the man to impress
Republican mistakes upon the independent voter.
However it is possible that a new man will have
to be brought up from the ranks; Sen. Estes Ke-
fauver (Tenn.), Gov. G. Mennen Williams (Mich.),
Sen. Harry Fulbright (Ark.) or maybe even one of
the Roosevelt brothers.
Since Stevenson is already a recognized nation-
al figure, the suggested former course seems to be
much the better one. It seems unfortunate that ad
man such as Stevenson should have to grind in
the mud of the political contests but sometimes
when the end is such as this one the end justifies
the mneans.

Ike, Churchil
And Defense
By J. M. ROBERTS JR.
President Eisenhower and Win-
ston Churchill appear to have
agreed muchimore thoroughlyon
their picies tozard France and
Germany than on the relationship
of their own countries and thei
policies toward Asia.
They didn't say what they in-
tended to do about bringing Ger-
many into the defense of Western
Europe as a full-fledged partner
in the event France fails to ratify
the Europeen Defense Community.
They just said they were agreed
it would have to be done.
France, they said, had better go
ahead and ratify EDC as it is
and stop talking about revising ar-
rangements which already haeve
been approved by all the other in-
volved countries except Italy.
Either that, or France had better
just reject the treaties now, ending
the uncertainty which has surrend-
ered them two years, and letting
the other Allies get ahead with
their planning.
These diplomatic communiques,
like the one after the Eden-Dulles
discussions of a Southeast Asia
pact in London recently, often
sound more optimistic about the
extent of agreement than is war-
ranted by the subsequent difficul-
ties of negotiations to work out the
details. Churchill's reiteration of
his "coexistence" talk heightens
the uncertainties.
With regard to Germany, how-
ever, Britain does seem to have
moved very close to the United
States. Sufficiently close, perhaps,
to shock France, which has al-
ways relied to an extent on Brit-
ish hesitation over a rearmed Ger-
many. You can expect some high
French officials to be making their
appearances in Washington and
London very shortly now, in an
effort to work out some comprom-
ise which will turn Big Two policy
back into Big Three policy.
Britain Reluctant
The reluctance of Britain to do
anything about the defense of South-
east Asia now is made increasing-
ly embarrassing to the United
States by the request from Cam-
bodia for an immediate defense
treaty.
That meets one of the require-
ments laid down by the State De-
partment that the United States
cannot act except at the request
of peoples who need aid. Laos can
be expected to add itsrequest soon,
and Thailand is already actively
campaigning for the pact.
There is now a possibility of one
respite.
Expect Red Drive
The Communists had been ex-
pected to launch, by this time, an
all-out offensive against Hanoi in
Viet Nam. They had been expected
to start winning. This would have
required they could afford to lose
the delta city.
Now there remain only two
weeks before the monsoon rains
will wash- across the area in full
fury for six weeks. No one can
conduct any major operation dur-
ing them.
With military leaders of both
sides meeting to discuss their an-
gles of a cease fire, and with cer-
tain slight reports of greater op-
timism at Geneva, the United
States may get some time in which
to maneuver.
There has been some talk of al-
lowing another month fo decision
at Geneva. If it faits to produce
anything, Britain may be more
ready to act. As it is, action with-
out her, the traditional policeman
of Southeast Asia, would be very
difficult for the United States.

To the Editor:
READ with some amazement
the letter to the editor of one
Marjorie Crockett, complaining
that the title of the special sum-
mer program "Woman in the
World of Man" discriminates
against women by implying that
it is basically a man's world.
Obviously Miss Crockett belongs
to that tribe of eager feminists
who formerly plagued the nation,
disrupting the congenial 'recrea-
tion of harrassed males by bash-
ing in saloon windows with steel-
tipped umbrellas.
Females of Miss Crockett's ilk
are living disproofs of the fabled
gentleness of their sex.
May I suggest that no malice at
all is intended by the title of the
symposium. In point of fact, may
I suggest that the (undoubtedly)
unintended implication to which
Miss Crockett is so overly sensi-
tive mirrors nothing but the truth.
It is a man's world. And so long
as viology remains fairly constant,
it always will be a man's world.
And all Miss Crockett's screech-
ing crew would do well to accept

inevitabilities. The beginning of
wisdom is adjustment.
I fail to understand why the
noble career of motherhood does
not provide a sufficient degree of
filfillment.

THIS rip-snorting film is full of startling con-
trasts. Foremost we have the wonders of super-

or anything.

against lovely Piper Laurie.
Further, the Idaho Potato, Johnny Dark's car,
fights desperate duel to the finish with Thunder-

You see, although the world, as depicted by

sports cars, a certain boorish car manufacturer
hasn't. His motto is "Safety first in the car for
