V. REVENUE SHARING FUND (No figure for Plcceding Year) M,ss,ssmp, OUTLOOK I There is a touch of irony in the public response that Mi,ssis- :ippi's officials have given to the demise of Harry Truman, the former president from Mis- s2uri. Charity and compassion ought to be commended under the circumstances. But the fact is that Harry Truman was an anathema to Mississippi's leaders in his time. Gov. Bill Waller, for instance, mus,t have forgotten 1)is history when he issued a public state- ment commending Truman. An'd Een, artor James Eastland sent out a press release taking credit for turning the tide and gettin'g Truman nominated as vice pre.s- id:ent over Henry Wallace and thus elevating' him to the pres- idency when Presiden,t Roosevelt died. This is history. But .the fact is that Truman Revenues Ensuing Year Revenue Sharing funds received[wa not admired ,in 1948 when failed, it was a water;shed ewent that can't be overlooked. But Truman still had his fol- lowing in Mississippi. In nox,th- east Missis,ippi, an area that appreciated some of the Demo- cratic New Deal programs, they thought enough of him to bring him in for a political speech in, 1960 for a rally for the late John Kennedy. Several ,thousand attended that rally and the gutsey little guy from Missom'i did his bit, pointing with pride to-what he and the party had done for the e.euntry, and viewing with alarm what mi,g:ht have happened had the country turned to the Re- publican candid a.te 0hat year. There is no mileage, really, in, pointing out the inconsistencies of politicians. lut, Truman made his mark on the political scene. And it ought to be ,recorded that he from U. S.
