DAMN THE FACTS AND FULL SPEED AHEAfr—
BY “MX)K”
Now we know that LOOK Magazine isn’t even trying to
get honest results in its notorious public opinion (tolls. In
the June 7th issue LOOK comes up with the astonishing
announcement that Washington press and radio correspon
dents almost unanimously named Robert Taft as the Sen
ator “who contributes the most to his country’s welfare.”
It takes a lot of gall to unblushingly offer such propa
ganda about the man who authored the Slave-Labor Act,
who has consistently opposed sound medical insurance, who
attempted to cut out housing aid to subsistence farmers,
and who engineered the Dixie-GOP scuttling of civil rights
legislation.
LOOK admits it questioned only 100 correspondents . . .
probably all carefully hand-picked for the right answers.
It is doubtful that LOOK’S warped opinions will do Taft
any good in ’50. People are a little sceptical of a poll that
only six weeks ago had the crust to announce that “Taft
Hartley Aims still popular with workers” in spite of the

WONDERFUL, QUIET JUNE
Enveloped by a mood Impassioned with the quietude
of a slumbering woods and becalmed by the drowsi
ness of the warmth of June, Samuel T. Coleridge was
moved to write—
“A noise like a hidden J>rook,
In the leafy month of June
That to the sleeping woods at night
Singeth a quiet tune.*
Coleridge’s thoughts of peaceful June are immersed
in a 20th Century sen of cataclysmic speed and care
lessness that would have challenged the imagination
of any 18th Century pen.
Yes, the woods may still sing of a brook in June—
but today we speak of man-made brooks that flow
through woods; concrete brooks—flowing not of water,
but of millions of unnatural devices called automobiles.
For this is the time that travel soothes the searching
heart.
The softness of a nation’s green pastures will be
pierced; trees, rich with life, will quiver with fear
imt the highway will hum to the tune of roaring ve
hicles on vacation-bound jaunts.
This is the beginning of the glorious vacation period
when families will pack limb and belongings to seek
a few fleeting moments away from Life’s more tedious
It will be a wonderful June and a quiet June. It
will be a wonderful June for those who drive with
care, and an unusually quiet for those *2420 unfor
tunate beings who will die in unnecessary accidents.
