THE AMERICAN WAY ^-^-SB**"* ««■ VOL. 32—No. 51 NORTH CANTON, OHIO, WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 17. 1958 7c PER COPY C. E. Hackworth To Head Area Fund Campaign For Boy Scouts Socialism •- Sneaky Style A Little Prodding The main emphasis, in the federal aid-to-education measure, is on efforts to improve training in the sciences. •That is not surprising. Since the sputniks were flipped into the heavens last fall, public concern about education has focused largely on this field. There has been widespread recognition of a rather elementary. fact — that supremacy in science and engineering is now a vital condition of survival. The federal aid bill also places some emphasis on foreign language training. That, too, is important. It is coming to be generally recognized that the ability to read and communicate in other languages will be more and more useful to Americans as the *wor.ld continues to shrink. The' program now authorized appears to have adequate safeguards against any undue federal encroachment on states' rights in education. There remains a legitimate question as to whether a continuing federal aid program is desirable, and whether it might eventually break through those safeguards as states came to accept it. The danger does not seem great. Sentiment against federal interference in educational matters appears likely to remain strong enough to keep Washington at a proper distance. If this is granted, one, can argue soundly that continued federal assistance in education would be a good thing; It would.be. a good, thing, not sojnuch .because individual states. canftot pay, for adequate education as because some states need to be stimulated — prodded might be a better word — into doing what needs to be done. Federal aid can do that. -For the time Being, the prodding will be done mostly in the fields of science and foreign languages. Over <the long haul, it should be remembered, other areas of education miay be just as important to the nation's well-being. Demands Of Tyranny It seems clear that Khruschev, or anyone who triumphed over him as he did over Malenkov, could only retain power by a continuance of the Stalinist system. The eradication of Stalinism would undoubtedly mean the end of the Russian Communist party and, hence, its leaders. Loosening the screws of totalitaranism even a little produced* serious troubles, disaffection, the spirit of revolt in the satellite world. Not only would KhruscheVs own power and fate have been at stake, had he continued with a so-called program of liberalization; the rule of the party would probably have been shaken. Once a man is a tyrant, he will do as much killing as is necessary for him to remain in power. Like tyrants before him, he will disregard the moral code of mankind. Power is his supreme end; for power, he will stop at , nothing. The West has been deluding itself with hopes that the Soviet tyranny would be outgrown. Many Westerners hoped that Khruschev would become a reasonable dictator, which is a contradition in terms. The letup in pitiless opposition to Khruschev and the system which made him has helped the new Kremlin tyrant; it has weakend the morale' of /the West. Never in history has the overthrow of tyrants been easy. But men shrink from facing the hard facts of tyranny and even the mental rigors of fighting it. It is precisely this shrinking which the tyrants desire. They win most easily from those whom they cripple with fear. Only unrelenting opposition to Khruschev and his tyranny is possible if we mean it when we say that we want freedom to live and_grow. After Alaska, Hawaii The Territory of Alaska has for years been ready to accept the privileges and assume the responsibilities of statehood. •Congress has at last recognized this in the only acceptable way,, by approving Alaska's admission as the 49th state. The Territory of Hawaii has similarly been qualified to take its place as a full-fledged member of the United States of America. Approval of statehood for the islands seems virtually certain. Congress would not be wise to impose further delay on the citizens of -Hawaii. These people do not now enjoy the full rights of citizenship, nor are they burdened with the full responsibilities that would be theirs if Hawaii were a sovereign state., To wjthold rights and responsibilities .is jxp. injustice and an indignity. Without delay. Hawaii should be set upon_!fche jfiiial. toad to .statehood. Chester L.
