Vishinsky. Mr. Vishinsky had proposed that the “parties directly concerned” and others, including neutrals. comprise a seommission “for the peaceful settlement of the Korean ques-

tion.”

Soviet Reaction Awaited

The Russian proposal was con- tidered vague as to both the composition of the new commis- sion and its tasks. Dr, Belaunde uppeared to be formulating it in erms acceptable to his govern- -nént and presumably to the Jnited States. |

There was no immediate Soviet eaction. The Political Commit- ee adjourned following Dr. Be-

aunde’s speech until Nov. 5 to wait the American election verdict. .

Earlier in the day’s debate, “anadian delegate Paul Martin slso had proposed a method of sreaking the deadlock on pris- mer-of-war exchange. It was imilar in nature, also providing ‘or a neutral commission to nterview prisoners and take sustody of those who refused re- datriation.

Soviet delegates have yet to answer the direct question, “Will you agree to this principle?” The question was first put by British Minister of State Selwyn Lloyd on Oct. 30. It was repeated Nov. 3 no fewer than four times in the course of a short speech by Selim Sarper of Turkey.

Some circles attached con- siderable importance to. this effort. sirice the Asian powers have access to Mr. Vishinsky and his aides and in fact have been conferring with him. Their ac- tivities have been called an ine fdrmal effort to mediate the Korean war. :

Better Wavy to Pick Vice-President Urged

By ROSCOE DRI MMOND, Chiel, Washington News Bureau, The Christian Science Monitor

Washington

By the time this edition of The Christian Science Monitor reaches most of its readers the American people will hardly be aware that thev have elected a Vice-President of the United States.

The. election about as automatic as it could be. It is the least-considered biggest decision within the power of the American voters. |

If a majority has voted for Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower, it has elected Vice-President Richard M. Nixon.

If a majority has voted for Gov. Adlai E. Stevenson. it has elected Vice-President John J. Sparkman.

What this means, and what sur elective system continues to tolerate, is that our choice of Vice-President is simply a political reflex action having about as much deliberation as accepting the other end of a torn theater ticket as you go by the ticket taker.

Now, this article is written, deliberately, before it is known who the next Vice-President is going to be because the need of finding some better means of selecting the vice-presiden- tial nominees—making it in- tentional and purposeful, not accidental or casual—is abso- - Jutely no reflection upon either Senator Sparkman or Senator Nixon,

ee See

The central fact is that neither Senator Nixon nor Senator Sparkman ever was

considered for the presidency by either of their parties. Neither was Charles Curtis, nor John Garner, nor Henry Wallace, nor Harry Truman.

Not only are the vice-presi- dential candidates of both parties rarely considered for the presidency, but their nomi-

nation is almost ‘invariably dominated by or made in def- erence to the’ personal wishes of the presidential nominee,

Mr. Roosevelt picked Mr. Garner, Mr. Wallace, and Mr. Truman as his running mates. Governor Stevenson picked ‘Senator Sparkman. ‘General Eisenhower personally selected senator Nixon.

What is important is that not one of these men was ously considered by his party as presidential material and in no instance was his nomina- tion for the vice-presidency based on any consideration of his fitness to serve in the White House,

SCrl-~

ke ee

You remember. what hap- pened in 1944? The nation went through a monumental presidential campaign, a hard- fought contest in the midst of world war to determine whether the American people wished Gov. Thomas E. Dewey in the White House for a first term or Franklin Roosevelt m the White House for a fourth term.

The Ameriean people. got neither. They got Harry S. Truman in the White House for three years, nine months, and eight days of the four-year term for which they had elected President Roosevelt.

The American voters had not passed on the qualifications of Mr. Truman for this position. They had not even passed on his qualifications as vice-presi- dential candidate. The voters have little enough voice in the presidential nomination, and they have virtually no voice whatsoever in the vice-presi- dential nomination.

The Democratic Party did not pass upon Mr. Truman’s qualifications for the presi-

and qipon

1944 neither parts passed Senator Sparkman’s and Senator Nix- ons qualification€ in 1952, It is political tradition, unlortu- nately rarelv violated, to per- mit the successful presidential nomintce to name any running mate he wishes, Last summer cans considered Gov. Earl Warren and Harold Stassen and Gen. Douglas MacArthur for the presidency. They: did not consider Senator Nixon. The Democrats considered senator Estes Kefauver, Sena- tor Richard Russell, Averell Harriman, and Senator Robert Kerr. They did not consider senator Sparkman.

This is no aspersion upon the next Vice-President of the United States. It is only an aspersion upon the _ political system which makes the nomination of the vice-presi- dential nominee a weary, last- minute, personal,

dency in

and his election as automatic asa dial telephone. 4 4 4

If the Vice-President were

no more than the presiding officer and tie-vote breaker of

the Senate, it wouldn't matter |

greatly. But it does matter greatly because the Vice-Presi- dent is the heir -to the highest office within the gift of the American people and one of the most powerful in the world. Five of the last 16 Presidents of the United States have been Vice-Presidents who succeeded to the White House by the passing of the President. Thus about one out of three Vice- Presidents, whose qualifica- tions for the White House have not been considered either by their party or by the people, has become President. It’s time for a change.

Yet it was definitely an “I Like Ike’ crowd. It cheered, yelled, and screamed for fully 10 muin- utes when the general first made his appearance, “And ‘it shouted long and loudly at the conclusion of,his speech radiocast and tele- cast to the entire nation.

Striking hard at the Truman

, administration, the general asked

‘Is our age cursed to live under some such inexorable law that decrees Whatever soldiers win, statesmen must surrender’

“Il was taught no such laws or precepts as a boy. As a man, I have learned to accept no such black belief.”

Need for Unity Stressed

Such was the fone of the speech which featured the need for world peace, and the need for unity ane faith.

The rally audience gave tre- mendous (‘ovations to the GOP state ticket, led by Senator Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr., and Rewvre- sentative Christian A. Herter, GOP nominee for Governor, Ac- tually the state candidates, par- ticularly Senator Lodge, consti- tuted the reason General Eisen- hower chose to close his cam- paign in Boston.

It was a Hollywood: extrava-, ganza event, replete with motion-

picture figures, sports stars, and television personalities.

But this array .of entertain- ment talent’ was merely back-

ground and buildup for the gen- |

eral, who obviously outshone all the movie and sports luminaries.

Red Menace Spotlighted

Asserting that “peace is the dearest treasure in the. sight of free men,” General Eisenhower struck hard at compromise with the Communist menace, which he

characterized as “strikingly” like

Nazi tyranny.

“The enemy we face,” he said, “is above all not a_ political nor a military enemy, but a moral enemy,

“We must, then, know this menace for what it is. We must be ready for it in whatever arena it challenges us. We must be armed with guns, but’ we must understand that the development of more powerful and more hor- rible weapons, necessary as they are in our kind of world today, will not and cannot of themselves bring peace. We must be armed also with international compacts and sound trade policies and firm

currency, But above all we must

be armed with devotion to th: morality of freedom.”

Around the nation, other com- munities began to report returns.

‘Ike’ Leads in Abilene

Abilene, Kan., where General Eisenhower spent his boyhood, gave him 39 of the first 44 bal- lots cast there. In Parsons, Kan., General Eisenhower had a 299 to 134 lead. In 1948 this industrial town gave President Truman 57.9 per cent of its vote.

First returns from Oklahoma, gave Governor Stevenson a lead in an east central coal mining city where the union labor vote is heavy, The early count in one precinct gave the Governor a 43-to-18 margin.

Bell Store precinct in South Carolina gave five votes to an independent slate of Eisenhower electors and three votes _ for Stevenson.

In Emporia, Kan., returns from two precincts gave Eisenhower a 48-to-30 lead.

Southern Votes

Brown’s Farm first Florida pre- cinct to report, gave General Eisenhower and Governor Stevenson four votes each. Four years ago President Truman polled four votes here to two votes for J. Strom Thurmond, States’ Rights nominee.

Rutland Precinct in Florida cast 14 votes for Stevenson and 10 for Eisenhower.

In Cataloochee, N.C., Steven- son polled seven votes, Eisen- hower none. In 1948 all seven votes went to President Truman,

Pointe Aux Barques, tradition- ally the first Michigan commu- nity to report, gave its 15 votes to Eisenhower. Its 14 votes in 1948 went to Dewey.

It was interesting but no - prise that Bernard M., Bartch, long-time adviser to Democratie. presidents, announced he had cast his vote in New York for General Eisenhower.

Forced to Wait in Line

Indicative of the size of the Massachusettts turnout was the fact that Mr. and Mrs. Herter had to wait in line 45 minutes at their Ward 4, Boston, voting place.

Poll workers report they never have seen such a turnout in this Republican ward.

It was the same story in com- munity after community, with many early voters having to wait some time to cast their ballots.
