DAMN THE FACTS AND FULL SPEED AHEAD—
Now we know that LOOK Magazine isn’t even trying to
get honest results in its notorious public opinion polls. In
the June 7th issue LOOK comes up with the astonishing
announcement that Washington press ami 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
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 Tqtt
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
fact that only 27 per cent of the workers polled favored
the act. _
JUST BETWEEN US GIRLS—BY TAFT
Senator Robert Taft went home May 16th to gb»at about
his record to a meeting of 1,000 members of **c'
publican Women’s Organizations in Columbus, Ohio. What
is his record? Taft said that he had blocked every phase
of the Fair Deal Program except spending: “and we^wili
check that before we get through with this Congress.”
He took a crack at Ohio’s farmers by sneering at the
Brannan Plan to keep farm income high. He endeared
himself to the ladies assembled by boasting that the Taft
Hartley Act was still on the books.
The farmers and workers of Ohio will remember this
“record” in 1950.

Lochrie, '•more women are learn
