(iod so loved the world that hr gavr hi* only begotten *on — John 3:15.
We cannot explore the heart of the Infinite, but one reason why an
earthly parent loves his rlhidrrn so dearly Is because he sacrifices for
them Tlie wisest mortal ha* not been able to explore the majesty of
Ood * love. It is Infinite
Argument Has Little Merit
•THE cry was heard in 1946 ami now it in heard ujrain:
the president should resign because the country has
veted into power a conjrrea* of the opposite party. Hut the
arirument has little merit, and otiirht to be abandoned
once and for all.
First, any president who followed that course would be
setting a pattern that other succeeding occupants of the
White House would presumably lie expected to match. And
the net effect of such a practice would lie to reduce the
presidential term from four to two years, except in those
fortunate |*riod* when his party held congress throughout
the whole elective span.
The U. 8. constitution clearly specifies four years as the
president's term, and it seems unwise to suggest that it lie
amended by resignation.
Second, if it did liecome the practice to quit when a
hostile congress was voted in, then any president would feel
com|>elled to conduct an off-vear election campaign everv
bit as exhausting and time-consuming as the presidential
There is absolutely nothing to recommend this. It is bad
enough that member* of the house of representati\*es must
seek re-election every two years.
ASK any congressman and he will almost certainly tell you
he has just U>gtin t<> learn his job as his freshman term
is ending. He really needs two or three terms to become a
For the president, the problem is far more acute. Ilis
burdens of administration are tremendous. In two years'
time he can hardly get past the beginning* of his legislative
program. The time is too short to judge his effort pnqierly.
If, on top of this, he were called on to electioneer like n
congressman, his op|H»rtunities for convincing |ierformancc
would t«e oven fewer.
A third objection to the resignation proposal is that it
rests on a couple of false assumptions—that the |ieople
mean to repudiate their president when they elect a hostile
congress, and that no president can function successfully
unless his own party controls Capitol Hill.
Even a jandslike defeat for a president's |»arty in con-
gress doesn't necessarily indicate his repudiation. Witness

functioning with—or against—hostile congressional
aggregations, with from fair to surprisingly good results.
In 1917 and 1948. when President Truman was in the
White House and congress was Republican, some of the most
im|N>rtunt foreign policy legislation in this nation's history
was adopted—(>reek-Turki«h aid. the Marshall plan, the
North Atlantic treaty.
The late FOR <>i*Tute<l from I9.'l8 through 1944 with a
congress which, while nominally Democratic, often aligned
in conservative Democratic-Republican coalitions that fought
him. S et we were able to prosecute successfully the greatest
war in our history.
Even on domestic matters. Mr. Truman hardly fans!
wKter with a Democratic conge** than with the Republican
80th Mr. Hoover is |>erha|M the most striking modern ex-
ample of one w ho did suffer from such a division of control.
But on the whole, this argument, like the whole case for
resignation after a mid-term election reverse, is weak. L*t
the president travel the full course.
