The individual responsibility of
American citizens in the task of
winning the war and preserving the
peace was stressed by Senator Tru
man, Democrat, of Missouri, yester
day at the Democratic Club.
At the club’s luncheon meeting,
the Senator said there is a tendency
among certain groups to evade per
sonal responsibility with the plea
that today s problems are too big for
individuals and should be handled
“This abdication from responsi
bility, though natural under pres
sure of war conditions, can only
lead to confusion and breakdown,”
he said. “We can see the result in
Europe. The heart of the democratic
process is the voluntary initiative of
the individual citizen and his gov
ernment. When communities grip
their responsibilities and resolutely
lace their problems at the source,
there comes a new self respect and
an ability to participate to the full
in the destiny of the world,” he con
The speaker advised that, as we
work toward victory, we must pt*n
for postwar stability.
“To win a military victory alone
would be futile unless we lay a
foundation in our postwar world that
will secure for all men everywhere
their basic human rights,” he
asserted. “History has bestowed on
us a solemn responsibility. We shall
and we must be a mighty force at
the peace conference. We failed
before to give a genuine peace, we
cannot fail this time.”
Mrs. Henry Grady, chairman of
the Education Committee, was in
charge of the program and intro
duced the Senator. The club presi
dent, Mrs. Francis Sayre, presided.
She praised Mrs. Grady, who left
last night for California, for the
service she has given to the club.

Against 4th Term
By Gretchen Smith.
A warning that re-election of
President Roosevelt will result in
a “four-year war between the
White House and Congress” was
sounded by Senator Capper, Re
publican. of Kansas in a caustie
snti-New Deal speech yesterday be
fore' the League of Republican
Citing Majority Leader Barkley’s
recent revolt against the President’s
veto message as an indication of
increasing resentment by Congress
against “White House dictation In
the legislative field,” Senator Cap
per declared the only escape from
friction between the President and
Congress would be an election of a
Congress "subservient to White
“And the people are not going
to elect a Roosevelt Congress,” he
asserted. "They are going to elect
a Republican House by a big ma
jority. There are those who predict
that a majority of the Senate in
the next Congress will be Republi
cans,” he added.
Declaring that election of a Re
publican President was in the “In
terest of national unity,” the speak
er said, "Pour years of a White
House going in* one direction and
a Congress going in the opposite
direction could be fatal to the fu
ture of the United States.”
Senator Capper ridiculed argu
ments for re-election of President
Roosevelt to a fourth term on the
plea of "don’t swap horses in the
middle of a stream.”
i say, ior Gods sake, how long
is that horse going to stay in mid
stream?” he vociferated, to the ob
vious delight of his audience.
"Why doesn’t he try to get out of
midstream instead of looking al
ways for emergencies to keep him
in midstream? I am getting all
ured tired of staying in midstream
—or at least finding myself with
that same horse in midstream every
four years. I want to start toward
shore some of these days and I’d
like to feel that when I get ashore
it will be on the Republican side
of this stream—this river of doubt
and uncertainty where the horse
seems to have anchored himself for
life,” he continued.
"Winning the war does not de
pend upon any one man remaining
President,” Senator Capper added.
"America and Americans are going
to win this war.”
Declaring that the "American
Army, Navy and Air Force; Ameri
can management and American
labor, the American farmer and
his women folks and children, the
American taxpayers and bond buy
ers are going to win this war,” the
Senator concluded: “We will win
if President Roosevelt is re-elected.
We will win if Gov. Dewey Is
elected President; if Gov. Brlcker
is elected; if Senator Taft is elected;
if Gov. Warren or any of a docen
Governors are elected, or Gen.
