morass of confusion as a result of a presidential thrombosis is inexcusable. We find
ourselves at odds on matters of legal cabinet responsibility, top administration,
and a procedure providing for the
smooth continuity of governmental procedures.
It took 150 years to establish a proper
plan for the presidential succession. Must
we wait another 150 years before we provide properly for a situation in which the
President becomes incapacitated while in

HITS TREATMENT GIVEN FARMERS
To the Des Moines Register:
The C.I.O. Auto Workers and Steel
Workers have demanded and secured a
pay increase that will amount to around
20 cents an hour, which will be passed
on to farmers and public in increased
prices for industrial commodities they
Congress legislated a pay increase for
themselves from 815,000 to $22,000 per
year. They recently passed a minimum
wane for labor of one dollar per hour.
When they are asked to pass legislation to help stabilize farm income, they
refuse to act. In fact, it seems the price
of labor and industrial commodities will
continue to rise while farm products will
he pushed to lower levels.
Is this fair to the group that produces
the food and fiber that give sustenance
to (he nation?
Farmers are certainly entitled to a fair
share of the national income, that will
produce a standard of living equal to

URGES PEOPLE TO WAKE UP
BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE
To the Tablet:
General Mark Clark, speaking to
13.000 school teachers in Milwaukee,
received a cheering ovation when he said.
"I believe in our Constitution. I do not
believe in a world government. I do not
believe our government should be subordinate to any other government. We
should have more United States Days
and fewer UN Days."
He is one of the top generals who
served in Korea and later testified under
oath that we lost that war because the
UN would not permit us to win. The UN
wanted to fight to a standstill and a
stalemate. General MacArthur was fired
because he insisted that in war there was
"no substitute for victory."
General Clark, speaking in Chicago
after Korea, said, "I am the only American general ever compelled to sign an
armistice on the field of battle."
Let's speak up, against the "international conspiracy' designed to take away

THE "RAIN" OF KING REUTHER
To the Sun Diego Union:
On Labor Day Walter Reuther was
concerned about the public interest and
along with Truman was worried about
the "selfish interests."
In practice Reuther does not include
anyone but union labor in his public interest, but on Labor Day he did shed a
tear or two for retired people.
Many of these retired people saved
and invested in the selfish interests to
secure old age independence without a
guaranteed annual wage or other pilfering of these selfish interests. Their dreams
have been shattered by labor's constant
demand for higher and higher wages and
other benefits which have caused higher
Reuther, along with other Socialists,
has never been concerned about the possibility of inflation and the destabilizing
of the American economy.
Next year the merged AFL-CIO unions
will provide Reuther with fifteen million
dollars to intimidate unorganized workers.

LAST HALF OF 1955 CONTEST
To the Wall Street Journal:
Many Americans do not grasp the distinction between a democracy and a republic. Even more of us overlook the
fact that during the past two decades
this country has subtly changed from the
latter into the former. The significance of
this change, it seems, is neither wholly
appreciated nor fully understood.
Perhaps we should change our form
of government. But before we throw
away our Constitution we should remember that our founding fathers intended
to have a republican form of government.
The word "democracy" does not appear in our Declaration of Independence,
nor in our unique Constitution, nor in
am state constitution. Indeed, we cannot
find it in any presidential address until
the time of Wilson — except in a few
isolated instances where it was used, not
to describe this country as a "democracy"
but specifically to differentiate it from
those which are.
