Student Political Debate
',By ROBERT Z. TORRANCE '44
Leader, Students 'for Willkie
-Wendell L. Willkie deserves
the support of every citizen of the
U. S. for a great variety of rea
sons, but notably because he rep
resents the forces that are deter
inlired to return our government
to the basic American principles
upon which it was founded. By
-evey word and act Wendell L.
Willkie is committed to maintain
the democratic process of govern
Mr. Willkie's election will de
',feat the wholly..Un-American pro
gram 'of the New Deal party; it
Will repudiate the false promises
- that the federal, government is
'endowed with beaurocratic pow
ers, and that only one man is
qualified to direct it.
The coming election may well
he'Verthed the Most our
hiStory; for should the Third
Term tradition be broken, no man
cdil safely predict the fate of our
form of government.
Therefore if you believe in the
continuance of a true democracy
under which business and labor
—with renewed confidence—may
work together towards a normal
TeCoverY, and under which men
of ability—not of Political influ
nce—may hold public office, you
may so-signify by voting for Wen
dell L. Willkie.

Chairman, Young Democrats
Much time and space ;has been
devoted by the Republicans in
this campaign to the question of a
third term. President Roosevelt
among other things has been call
ed a tradition breaker and an as
pirant 4o dictatorship because he
is.seeking to remain in office long
er., than eight years. These accusa
tions are false and empty because
_teaches the opposite.
, c in the first place the tradition
is supposedly based on George
Washington and Thomas Jeffer
son and yet we defy anybody to
find in the written or spoken
words of eithel• of these men any
thing opposing, a third term.l„.
Washington retired from the of
fice which he didn't want in the
first place because he was too
tired to - serve a third term and
because he felt he had done his
part. In spite of the fact that
Jefferson wrote prolifically about
the then_ young democracy• not
once did he come out against a
As for the accusation that
Roosevelt wants to become a dic
tator—why didn't he take steps
in that direction in 19.32 when the
country was ripe and all the peo
ple were on their knees begging
him to do something—anything to
put the United States back on the
road to better times? '

„Previous to Monday of this
week, the people of Italy knew
that war meant sending so:Ms and
fathers away in uniform to the

speeches. Sometimes the men re
turned—sometimes they did not,

explosives reduced their homes

smoking rubble. •
Now Italy is at war with Greece
—a country not primitively armed
and well over a thousand miles
away as was Ethiopia, but a scant
hundred miles distant and com

British seapower. If she succeeds,
both her navy and the Italian
mainland will know they have
been in a fight; if she fails, the
