The most commonly given reason for Governor Smith's defeat is that the Democrats in 1928 dared to defy a long stand- ing rule in ,their decision to nom- inate a person Who was not a Pro i testant.

With 1958 less than two months old there have al- ready been more traffic fatalities in the County than in the entire year 1958. There is ample evidence that in the tragedy at Halltown earlier this month and also in the!tor in ,mind .the voter. In tragedy at Rippon the past week, speed was the killer. When, 0h When, will we realizze that a heavy foot on an accelerator of a modern, high-powered automobile is an invitation to the greatest danger? When will people realize the utter senselessness, the utter stupidity of gambling their lives against a few minutes of time. We are at our wits end in editorializing on the dangers of modern day vehicular traffic. But we will renew a suggestion that we made in this paper many years ago in an effort to deter slaughter on the highway. Some years ago we suggested that signs be erected at points on the the rural highways where fatal accidents have occurred. What motorist would not slow down if he saw a sign as he drove by, "THREE PERSONS KILLED AT THIS SITE ON FEBRUARY 21, 1959, IN AN AUTOMOBILE ACCI- DENT." A skull and cross bones could very appropriately be placed at the top. We go a drastic step further. The State owns the high- way. Let the State, in non-salvageable cases leave the wreckage at the site. It may not make for a pretty high- way, but the statistics we are reading are not pretty either. THIS WEEK'S NEWS IN Maybe some dramatic approach along this or similar lines will have some effect in slowing America down. that Pennsylvan4a likewise has a Catholic governor (Lawrence). (I am surprised t)hat no one ,has yet ~aken the trouble to point out that Lincoln never belonged to any Church, and Eisenhower joined ~e church only after his election. I might also add that ~he similarity ,between the ~wo men began and ended at precisely this point.) But I take the somewhat more awkward position, not subscribed to by ~he vast majority of those who ,have taken it u,pon themsel- ves to write on this subject, .that The public interest in this ques Lion has been genera'ted almost en tirely by fine aspirations of Sena- tor John Kennedy, who, accord- ing to the T)olls (some of which were conducted by persons work- ing in his behalf) is Vhe Demo- cratic front-runner for 1960. The ,fear is, I think, that if Senator Kennedy should be nominated and elected .the Vatican, and not the White House, would ,be the real Charles Town, W. Va.

M DD EWAY Mrs. Randolph Barnes out that while Eisenhower was advocating economy for every other branch of the government he boosted his bud- get for running the White House by $332,250.00. The economy minded Mr. Eisenhower has also boosted the White House staff of 245 under Truman to 398, and has increased the White House working crew from 62 to not in harmony with ~he general view of the Catholic church; and it ~h, as caused some to wonder who thor or not Senator Kennedy is wil ling to sacrifice even his religion to be president. There are 35 million Catholics in the United States Rs compared to 60 million Prttestants; and w~hile the constitution places an immovable ,barrier between church and state, yet in the hearts of the people religion is a politico,1 factor and will continue to be in the years to come.

Mr. Pearson further asserts that Mrt Eisenhower has used American soldiers to perform personal services for him on his Gettysburg farm. These statements are not generalities. They recite defi- nite ascertainable facts, and it is to be presumed that they are correct, although possibly there may be some expla- nation which will mitigate the harmful effects of the con- clusions to be drawn from them. But they cannot be dismissed by generalized White House denials. It seems to us that there is a duty on the White House to either admit and/or explain these charges, or bear the responsi- bility for their implications. If Mr. Pearson's charges are false it is incumbent on the Administration to deny them. If they are true Mr. Eisenhower should again head for the golf course .... and stay there.
