Senator from Seath ('a» olir.a oerta iily oeeply lower o,l himself in the f.vimation of decent c/lizt iv of both, political p ivties when ho linn,led the President such a gratuitous insult as that delivered at the meeting of the tobacco growers in Washington last week. The tobacco men had gathered to dis cuss price ceilings, etc., when Smith ap peared uninvited, proceeded to butt in, and instead of trying to help the farm ers with some constructive advice, took up his time snarling about bureaucracy, and lambasting Roosevelt, even pro nouncing the President to be nothing more than a "carpet bagger from New York." Old "Cotton Ed", suffering with cere bral atrophy and slobbering with vin dictive malice, should certainly be "purged" by the people of the great State which elected him and which he has dishonored- He may be protected legally by his "senatorial immunity," but he is not shielded from the withering contempt of millions of both Democrats and Repub licans who believe in common decency, or who however at variance they may be with the policies of their President, ac cord to him the respect due to the chief executive of tTie nation. Instead of injuring the President, the Senator from South Carolina has skunk- lym-'P If to the level of a stinking bilge-ditch digger. Wendell Wilts Wendell Willkie, seeing the board set against lv.m, has withdrawn from the corte t for the Republican Presidential nomination. Mr. Willkie, who was by far the ablest candidate in the race, was too liberal for those who pre searching for a candidate to beat Roosevelt. Ho believed in prac tically the same strong anti-isolation policy of FDR. Indeed he was so pro nounced in his views along that line that manv of his party considered him reallv a Democrat at heart. He stood for a pol icy almost opposite to that which is the record of his party. i Nemesis j Doom trails relentlessly the Axis pow ers- If the War Department as Washing ton is correct in its assumption that Ger manv now is able to produce no more than 300 planes a month', while U. S. fac tories turn out more than 9,000, the re sult may be quickly gnessed. While a great authority— Sir John Dill —estimates that the rat empire will be destroyed and tffat soon. 3,745.
