WORCESTER DEMOCRAT v AND THE LEDGER-ENTERPRISE r Published Every Friday at Pocomoke City, Maryland. EDWARD J. CLARKE, Editor and Owner $1.50 The Tear In Advance. tJfertmd at the Postoffle* at Pocomoke City, Maryland, as Second Class Matter — - NATIONAL EDITORIAL. MAIvLr AMOCiATirm . FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 1941 RECREATION CENTER FOR THE YOUNG PEOPLE All of us appreciate an opportunity to play. All of us have a ligh tto such an opportunity. Pocomoke is proud, as it has a right to be, of its proposed park, its proposed tennis courts, swim ming pool, and other improvements, its golf course, its fire hall its armory, and all its other recreational facilities. The use which is being made of these facilities is ample evi dence of the foresight of the planners and sponsors of those pro jects. Pocomoke appreciates all that they have done. From observation, though, it would seem that at least one group has not been provided for. The youth have been left to gather when and where they will to spend their leisure time aim lessly. They must be content with whatever form of recreation they can improvise. Doesn’t it seem necessary that boys and girls of high school age as well as recent graduates have some place to gather occa sionally during the winter months for an evening of supervised recreation ? Study consumes a part of their time; some have part time jobs; many have work to do around home. Some belong to youth groups; such as, the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts. They’re doing good work, too! It would appear, however, that all have some time at their disposal which might properly and profitably be spent in supervised group activities. When so much has already been done for the adults of Poco moke, aren’t we willing to give some time and thought to a pro gram of recreation which will give more of the youngsters a “break” ? SCIENCE AND FREEDOM The cause of science and the cause of freedom are one. That vital point was made recently by James Bryant Conant, president of Harvard University. “Since the 15th Century,” said Dr. Conant, “three major de velopmants in human society have gone hand-in-hand—the rise of modern capitalism, the development of science, and the evolu tion of free institutions. Without science neither a business civi lization nor the social philosophy of liberalism could have come to pass. And, conversely, without liberalism, science could not have blossomed and endured.... Three paths of development—politi cal freedom, free enterprise, science—run parallel If we value * continuation of scientific advance, I do not see how we can fail to be concerned for the preservation of both free initiative and free democratic institutions.... •‘Dreams of new adventures and conquest Of the material universe can find their realization only in the labor of free men.” It is not by chance that science has reached its greatest flow er in the democratic world. That is true in all fields of scientific endeavor—chemistry, medicine, physics, astronomy, and the rest. It is not by chance that the greatest scientists of the Old World have fled the dictator countries, whenever possible, and have come to the New World. True science cannot flourish under regimenta tion. True science cannot long endure in the total state. Here in our own country some of the greatest advances in the history of the ages are being made. And science, in all its fields, will continue to advance here so long as we remain a nation of free men and free enterprise. ? it * FREE ENTERPRISE SETS RECORDS in the Survey Graphic, Walter D. Fuller, president of the Najftfiv nal Asociation of Manufacturers, describes the astonish ing progrfc/* made by American industry in meeting the demands of the defend® program. In conclusion, Mr. Fuller says this: “Free men and free management, working together as free pri vate enterprise despite distractions and delays, already have ac complished move than Hitler's robot legions have been able to ac complish in six years under the much-vaunted totalitarian dicta torship.” There is the answer to those who argue that democracy is too inefficient to survive in competition with the total states. There s the answer to those who say that the free enterprise system is doomed, and that some other, alien system must take its place. There is the answer to the defeatists who would weakly compro mise with a “New Order” whose announced goal is the destruction of everything that free peoples everywhere have fought for for hundreds of years. Let us make no mistake about this. Private enterprise can win this war for the democracies. Private enterprise can prove that free men can outproduce slaves. Even as private enterprise has given us, in times of peace, a standard of living unrivaled on earth, so can private enterprise in time of war give us a military defense far greater than that of any would-be dictator conqueror. But private enterprise cannot do this job with maximum speed and effectiveness if it is to be continually subjected to un necessary regulations, unnecesary, time-destroying red tape. Never forget where the strength of America lies. It lies in the factories, the power plants, the mines of America. It lies in the ideal free enterprise. It lies in the doctrine of freedom for all upon which this nation was founded. The total states attain great production through terror, sup pression, brutality, the destruction of all freedoms. The United States has always in the past attained great production and kept representative government intact. It can do so now. That is the unbridgeable difference between a democracy and a dictatorship. This defense effort, this war, must not be used to insidiously change and destroy a system of government which has made us free beyond compare. It must, instead, be used to prove again, and for all time, the power and the resourcefulness and the strength of free enterprise in all fields. That is the American destiny. “GOOD POLITICS” VS. “GOOD GOVERNMENT” The fact that government non-defense spendng is holding to depression levels at a time when employment and national income are approaching record highs, is a biting reflection on Congress. It will be remembered that Secretary Morgenthau said some months ago that the normal cost of government could be cut by $1 ,000,000,000 a year. Other authorities have estimated that re ductions of $2,000,000,000 or more are possible and practical. The difference between government non-defense economy and continued prodigality, may prove to be the difference between a solvent and a bankrupt government in the future. If Congress so preoccupied with “good politics” that it has totally forgotten the meaning and the obligations of “good government?” WORCESTER DEMOCRAT, POCOMOKE CITY, MARYLAND Cash May Be Scarce Next Christmas JOIN OUR 1942 CHRISTMAS CLUB ■- Save Weekly Have in 50 Weeks Choose $ * 25 $ 12.50 .50 25.00 one of 1.00 50.00 thes ® 3.00 150.00 D l ang 5.00 250.00 p,anS 10.00 500.00 20.00 1000.00 With the cost of living going up, taxes higher and most of us buying Defense Bonds, paying Christmas bills can be quite a burden next year.
