permit. The judges asked quite

help them in evaluating the
community progress and these
questions also were educational

Washington Now that thei
election news has subsided, it is |
time for a more fundamental!
look at a problem that continues
to concern me.
Dollar Gap—This problem is
the growing pressure on the
American dollar and the con
tinuing decline in the gold re
serve of our country. To most
people, this appears to be a dry
subject. Admittedly, it is not a
glamorous one, but its portent is
serious. We have heard talk of
devaluation of the dollar as the
result of this continuing pres
Serious Imbalance—The imbal
ance is greatly aggravated by
our constantly expanding foreign
aid program which is at the
forefront of the dangers to this
solvency of our nation. As was
pointed out in one of these col
umns several months ago, in re
cent years our gold reserve has j
declined in away to make us *
think twice before the situation |
gets wholly out of hand. It is '
no secret that there would be a 1
mammoth gold deficit if all for- 1
eign claims were presented for i
payment in gold, a situation that!
the United States must rectify, j
There has been much specu- 1
lation as to what caused the
flare-up some time ago when
the gold price soared as foreign-1
ers were selling dollars to buy
gold. My thesis is that foreign i
aid and other assistance has put |
such a heavy burden on the j
American taxpayer and the dol-|
lar that serious events may |
transpire unless something is
done to awaken the country to'
its senses. Some assistance can
be justified, as I have stated,
but the out-pouring of dollars
abroad cannot be justified at the
expense of our solvency.
Washington The general
election has demonstrated the
wisdom of changing the elec
toral vote system to permit a
state’s electoral vote to be di
vided proportionately in accord-
'V**- -•- ■ 1
I ance with the popular votes
Equitable—This is a fair ap
proach to the problem. It does
not strengthen democracy to
have an entire state’s electoral
vote be cast for one party. It
permits pressure groups and
swing parties to exercise an
inordinate power in choosing a
President of the United States.
That is why I strongly believe
in changing the provision and
expect to do all I can in the
next Congress to see what can
Party Strength —When a per
son votes in the Presidential
election, that person normally is
casting a vote as a member of
either the Democratic or Repub
lican parties. That person has
a right to have his vote trans
lated into the national picture
of his party. As you know, I
believe in political parties as
the vehicle on which democratic
gavernment in our country de
pends. Now that there appears
to be strong two-party systems
in every state, there is good
retson for bi-partisan support
of any effort to have electoral
votes counted proportionately.
Transition The transition
from a Republican to a Demo
cratic administration will be
made much easier by the fact
that Senator Kennedy and Pres
ident Eisenhower have pledged
cooperation in working out this
important activity. President
| Truman was wise in establishing
| this policy when President Eis
enhower was elected. After all,
! the good of the country must,be
the prime consideration.
