Grassroots Editors Speak
How would the country editors of this nation vote on major
public questions if they were in their Congressman's shoes? The
American Press, which is an independent magazine for hometown
newspapers, decided to find out by means of a survey. In its
recent issue it publishes the results, tabulated from the replies of
794 country editors, representing every section of the country.
Here, in brief form, are some of the questions and findings ("No
Answer" replies are not included in this summary, hence the per-
centages do not total 100.)
1. Should the President have the authority to use U. S.
forces i nthe Middle East if he deems it necessary to stop Com-
munist aggression? The "Yes" faction has the overwhelming
majority -- 71 per cent to 27 per cent.
2. Should foreign aid (which has been running at about a
$4 billion annual rate) be increased, decreased, or maintained at
the same amount? Only 6 per cent of the editors say more, while
63 per cent say less and 26 per cent favor the same amount.
3. Should oJhn Foster Dulles continue as Secretary of
State? Mr. Dulles is given a vote of confidence -- 57 per cent
to 38 per cent.
4. Should farm price supports be returned to the old 90
per cent of parity level? Only 22 per cent favor this, as against
74 per cent opposed.
5. Should corporation taxes be .moderately reduced, by
returning to the rates of some years ago? This is a veyr close
one, with 32 per cent favoring reduction, 35 per cent favoring
continuance of and 29 per cent endorsing reductions on the first
$25,000 of profit.
6. Should corporations be exempt from taxation on that
portion of earnings they distribute as dividends and upon which
individuals pay taxes -- that is, should this form of double tax-
ation be eliminated? The vote is 69 per cent "Yes" and 23 per
7. Should any budget surplus be applied to reducing taxes
or to, reducing the national debt? A big majority, 70 per cent,
prefers to reduce the national debt, as against 25 per cent favoring
8. Should the bill authorizing a minimum of $600 million
year of federal money for school construction be approved?
Here is another close one -- 45 per cent of the editors say "Yes",
and 53 per cent "No."
9. Should bills requiring that cooperatives and savings and
loan associations be subject to the same taxation as other busi-
nesses be approved? The "Ayes" have it, overwhelmingly -- 86
per cent to 12 per cent.
10. Should first-class postage rates be raised to 5 cents,
along with thhe provision that air-mail would be used when pos-
sible? This proposal received a "No" majority of 60 per cent, as
against 39 per cent saying. "Yes."
11. Should the Vice-President be relieved of his job of pre-
siding ove rthe Senate, and given specific executive duties? The
editors strongly favor this much-discussed possibility by a margin
of 63 per cent to 33 per cent.
The American Press prints pages of comment from coun-
try editors on these and other issues. One thing is clear --
whatever side or solution they favor, most of them have definite
ideas and they don't hesitate to eKpress them vigorously.
The Real Trading Stamp Issue
(Tampa Morning Tribune)
To many merchants the little trading stamp is
villain. Those who don't use it consider it an unfair and dan-,
gerous competitor. Those who do use it often regard it as a cori-
founded nuisance they are compelled to keep in the store for self-
We hold no brief for the trading stamp. It doesn't really
give the customer any more than he pays for; and, without doubt,
works a hardship on some merchants. Florida and the nation
could get along as well without it.
But whether the trading stamp is good or bad is not the
point the Legislature should consider in dealing with the several
bills to tax-and-regulate trading stamps out of existence.
The point is that in a free enterprise system, as ours is
supposed to be, a merchant should have the right to give away
trading stamps to the customers, if he pleases. Or'dishes. Or
There's no difference in principle between outlawing trad-
ing stamps and outlawing chain stores, which the Florida Legis-
lature came close to doing during depression days under pressure
from independent merchants.
And there's no difference in principle between banning
trading stamps and banning retail price-cutting, which the Legis-
lature tried to do under the misnamed "Fair Trade" laws.
Nor is there any appreciable difference between suppress-
ing trading stamps and suppressing competition in the milk in-
dustry, which the Legislature approved in the case of the price-
fixing State Milk Commission.
The attempt to destroy the chain stores was beaten, partly
in the Legislature and partly in the courts. We think even legis-
lators who voted. for the outlawing bill would admit today that
it was a gross violation of American principles.
The attempt to ban price-cutting by Fair Trade regulation
was killed by the State Supreme Court and the whole Fair Trade
fence -- designed to shut out aggressive competition -- is
falling down all over the country. There is a growing recognition
we think that it is fundamentally wrong.
The attempt to swaddle the milk industry against the ri-
gors of competitive selling succeeded for nearly 20 years. But
the people finally awakened to the shocking fact that in Florida
it was a crime for a dairyman to sell milk for a lower price, even
if he wanted to. Public opposition has succeeded in ripping the
once tight-knit fabric of milk controls; the whole protective gar-
ment may be torn apart .whenever enough legislators muster the
courage to defy the dairy lobby.
The 1957 Legilslature ought to profit from these mistakes
of the past. If it does, it will tell the lobbies now thronging Talla-
hassee that whether the trading stamp stays or goes is a matter to
be decided i nthe publicmarketplace -- not in legislative halls.

no hope of education arehoused,

-While the institute is operated as

were-of a character to inspire pride
