only one term? This
now being discussed
and also by people all over the
country. There are some very
good arguments for the single six
year term. One of the most effect-
ive arguments for the single term
is that the president will not use his
influence during his term of oflice
to build up a machine to continue
busy in oflice for the second term.
The president can do justice more
easily when not hampered by hav-
ing to look forward to his success
or failure in getting a second term
of office. Another argument for
the single six year term is that
presidential campaigns with the
consequent disturbed business con-
dition will come less frequently.
These two arguments seem to be
very plausible and they are being
very seriously considered by Con-
gress. Of course there are argu- .... ... „ rl

has had plenty county seat elections

true however no matter how short

and the only argument for the short
term is that such a predictiod will

gress is likely to pass the hill mak-
ing the term a longer single one.
After this it will have to be sub-
mitted to the votes for ratification
and will after several years become
a law or rather a port of the con-
stitution. It will be a progressive
step and it is to be hoped that Con-
gress will give the people a chance
to vote on the question.
