Washington The United
States Senate last Week rejected
a cloture petition. The' Senate
rule f{jr unlimited debate has
been the greatest force for the
preservation of sane government
and of' liberty in America. It
has done more for those pur
poses than any other rule or l
law of . the United States.
Thev proponents of cloture
would destroy the right of mi
norities to enjoy an' adequate
amount of time for debate.
They claimed we had had an
adequate amount of time for de
bate. 'I deny that,
i The Senate Rules and Senate
practice providing for unlimited
debate, find complete support in
the hearts of men who know
that tht Senate is the last legis
lative body on earth in which
that right exists, and who rec
ognize that the first thing a die-'
tator seieks to do when he wish
es to crush liberty is to put an
end to' the right of minorities
to debate.
That was the tactic which
Hitler followed; that is the tac
tic which is followed by the
Communists in Russia; that is i
the tactic which is followed byj
every dictator who desires toi
enslave the people. The first

thing that is done is to pro

a legislative body to speak as I
they believe it is their duty to'
their country and its citizens to
speak.

Frankly Speaking]
By Frame Roberts j
i
i Oh boy! Just finished Viewing
| CBS’s answer to 77 Sunset Strip.
It’s an hour-long Friday night
affair entitled “Manhattan,” but
could take place anywhere. To
!me one of the most disappoint
ing things was the fact that
this series was produced and
devised by Albert MeCleery, re
sponsible for the old daytime
1 “Matinee” series. The initial
story was the oldest, most hack
-1 neyed plot in writing history,
and what a disappointment after [
all the noise the networks are
continually making about con-|
stant striving for better enter-,
taimhent. It was an hour’s
worth of perfectly obvious j
cliches and the audience was al- •
ways about ten minutes ahead,
of the main character. Nowj
this was just the first in the,
new series and the only promis-;
ing note is that things have to
get steries less tired.
One consolation; it required no
dial-twisting. The wonderful
“Twilight Zone,” came on next.
Incidentally, while on the sub
ject of television, it’s just per
sonal opinion, of course, but
the series starring Robeit Stack,
“The Untouchables,” is by far
the greatest thing on television,
these days.
The first big record hop in
this area takes place Saturday
night at the armory. Hope to
see you there and if you haven’t
done so yet, make sure you!
send a card or letter with your
'name and address on it. We’ll ;
| be holding a big drawing with!
j lots of prizes including every
top ten record free, courtesy of
! Griffin’s Musiccnter.
What a crazy winter. Decern
j her and January brought forth
, warm, sunshiny weather. Comes
I March and we wind up with
| snow, sleqt, hail, cold weather,
j Hope by the time you’re read
i ing this the weather is more
I pleasant. Do you realize that
| springtime officially arrives in
, just a few short days?
Some 4-H Club youngsters
took over broadcasting chores
during the early part of last
week and it was a pleasure
working with them. They’re
bright, personable youngsters. I
got much personal satisfaction
out of helping some of them
get acquainted with good swing
music. They loved it. Which
proves, of course, that if you
expose them to good popular
music, they’ll really go for it.
This closing thought for the
week might be mainly for my
self to keep in mind: “Obstin
; acy and vehemency in opinion
i are the surest proofs of stu
: pidity”. |

CHRISTIAN SCIENCE
The power of faith, raised to
j spiritual understanding, will be
; emphasized at Christian Science
services Sunday.
Mark’s account of the healing
of the epileptic boy will be read,
concluding with Christ Jesus’
words (9:29): “This kind can
come forth by nothing, but by
prayer and fasting.” The sub
ject of the Lesson-Sermon is
“Matter”.
Selections from “Science andj
Health with Key to the Scrip- !
lures” by Mary Baker Eddyj
will include this (23:16): “Faith,
if it be mere belief, is a pen-;
dulum swinging between noth
ing and something, having no
fixity. Faith, advanced to spir
itual understanding, js the evi
dence gained from Spirit, which
rebukes sin of every kind and
establishes the claim of God.”
The Golden Text is from Co
lossians (3:2): “Set your affec
tion on things above, not on !
things on the earth.”
