The National Outlook
The Republican Platform and Business
By Ralph Robey
By all odds the greatest con
troversy in the Republican Na
tional Convention was over the
platform. The particular points
upon which there was disagree
ment were civil rights, defense,
and to a lesser degree the pro- j
penal for federal aid to educa
tion. Until the last it appeared'
there would be an argument on
the floor, but that did not hap
pen. None the less, this is the
most liberal platform ever adopt
ed by the Republicans.
But just as in the case of the
Democratic platform, we are con
cerned only with those pledges
and policies which have a direct
bearing upon the business trend.
There is a vast and basic differ
ence between the two platforms
i« this regard.
The Democrats, it will be re
called, pledged whatever policies
that may be necessary to have a
national growth rate of 5 per
cent, and made it clear that this
was a responsibility of govern
ment. The Republicans are in
favor of more rapid growth
(they mention no specific per
centage) but insist that this must
result, not from government ac
tion, but through the decisions of
free men. Their proposals, there
fore, are designed primarily to
create a climate which will en
The exact words in the Repub
lican platform are:
“To build a better America
with broad national purposes
such as high employment, vig
orous and steady economic
growth, and a dependable cur
rency, responsible management:
of our federal finances is essen- 1
tial. Even more important, a
sound economy is vital to na
They state it as their belief
that “except in times of war or
economic adversity, expenditures
should be covered by revenues
and “our tax structure should be I
improved to provide greater in
centives to economic progress,
to make it fair and equitable,
and to maintain and deserve
public acceptance." They pledge
to support the independence of
the Federal Reserve System and
this is directly contrary to the
pledge of the Democrats.
A most unusual item in the
Republican platform is the pri
ority assigned for the use of fed
eral revenues. This is. first,
meet the needs of national de
fense; second, take care of the
needs of the nation”
that cannot be handled by local
government or private action:
third, reduce the public debt;
and fourth, “improve our tax
An argument can be made for
this order, but in our judgment
it is not too sound. Obviously
national defense needs must be
met, but it does not follow that
this should require larger ex
penditures, and certainly there
is no evidence that we need an
increase of $3 billion, as Gover
nor Rockefeller has been saying.
The “urgent needs of the na
tion” is so vague a phrase that
it can mean anything, and it
could be made to absorb all pos
sible growth in revenues.
Paying off a part of the pub
lic debt is a desirable objec
tive, but at the moment it is not
as important as tax rate re
form. This is because only by
tax rate reform can we get the

It is not too much of an ex
aggeration. therefore, to say that
the order of priorities listed in
the platform is exactly back
There are other points in the
platform upon which there’s
much room for disagreement
from the economic point of view.
But the over-riding fact re
mains that this Republican
platform reflects a basic faith
and confidence in individual en
terprise and freedom, whereas '
the Democratic platform was di
rectly pointed to a more and
more powerful federal govern
ment and less and less individual
freedom. It will be interesting
and important to see whether
this difference is maintained in
the campaign which is ahead,

commitment that the majesty of
Isaiah’s prophecy flowered.

accepted the request to serve as
counsel for the accused soldiers.
It was an unpopular, fatiguing
assignment. But when he ad
dressed the jury, he expressed
his attitude by quoting words of
the Marquis Beccaria: “If I can
but be the instrument of preserv

We are able to stand up
against the crowd and bravely
say the right but unpopular
thing if we are totally committed
to the call of God.
This forthrightly clear utter
ance is greatly needed in the
area of religion. If we are com
mitted, the crowd will probably
not be with us. We shall live
as a minority group. We should
remind ourselves, however, that
the Christian religion is never
quantitative, but qualitative.
It may well be that in this
lackadaisical age. where so few
in or out of the church desire
to carry a cross, the Christian
church should grow smaller be
fore growing larger. Church
membership demanding more
from fewer people might result
in the release of new power in
our personal lives and in the
life of the nation.
Isaiah did not look around to
see who agreed with him, or

He simply answered God’s call
by saying, “Here I am! Send
