Etttblithed Merch 1, 1802 Our 80th Veer Results of the Election The reeurftnc« of Republican jtrenffth, which showed itself at the poll* in tJii* eity, and in the county 'results, in yesterday's general election, was not an isolated 'phenomenon. There was enough of a trend in the other eitita of the state and in numerous counties to give encour- ment to the Republican organization. The close race between Justice Anne X. Alpern and her fellow Pittsiburflier, Judge Henry X. O'Brien began to cheer up the Republicans long before its outcome •was known. The mere fact that the Democratic candidates did not Achieve the majorities promised by Democratic leaders in Philadelphia •would have been enough to bring joy to the Republican camp. The outcome, while disappointing to all the candidates who did not win, can be regarded as a somewhat inverted consolation to Democratic aspirants to local office. They met defeat in a movement of voter sentiment which, affected individual performances sufficiently that the candidates need not feel that they lost out on any personal basis. The election of Republicans to all the offices on the ballot in the city and county probably reflects vigorous campaigning on the part of the victorious candidates and the county organization; it may aJso reflect the inevitable dissatisfactions which cluster around the party in power, both at Harrisburg and Washington. Perhaps unspoken and almost subconscious reactions against some federal anc 1 state policies found expression in the local vote. Such reactions sre among the imponderable influences in politics. One factor in the upset, we strongly believe, has been the general disgust and disillusionment of votes over the state's failure to adopt a reapportionment plan. Although the Democratic administration blames Republican recalcitrance for this failure, the voters may have different ideas. They may think that Rep. Green of 'Philadelphia has been a little unreasonable in his demand that the voters of Philadelphia should have more, numerical representation . than any other part of the state, and that, while other sections may be sacrificed, Philadelphia should continue to have six Congressmen. Some voters may have decided •to take this method of letting it be known that they want decent reapportionment and can a how their teeth if they don't get it. Victory, as always, carries with it far more than the gratification of triumph, however. There is also the responsibility of performance. The people who have been elected to local office have been- given, not merely a politics! victory, but a mandate to render good government The voters will hold them to that obligation. • 'Look What You Made Me Do? 1 An oft - repeated gambit, among quarrelsome children, is one's hitting another, in a scuffle, loudly exclaiming "Just look what you made me do." Thia ia a good example of the technique af Nikita Khrushchev in hie current series of nuclear bomb tests. . According to him, all these teats, including the dirty super- super bomb, which lofted as much nuclear debris into the air as all of the U. S. testa put together, were forced by the actions of the U. S. in the Berlin crisis. The fact that the Berlin crisis was created by Khrushchev for his own reaaona and to serve his) own purposec, and the fact that he was preparing for his series of nuclear test at a time when the U. S. was observing a teat truce, which he'was •uppoaed to be observing alao, are blandly ignored by the Rusadan premier. Now, as a means of preventing the U. S. from doing any testing or developing any new nuclear weapons, Khrushchev threatens that, if we test any bombs either in the atmosphere, or underground, where the fallout danger is avoided, be .will keep on testing. Well, thic is another Red terror tactic. We should do what testing we consider to be absolutely vital and necessary to our own defense program. We should ignore the shouts and screams, the threats and browbeating, of Mr. Khrushchev. And we should continue making our best efforts to explain to the rest of the world just how one- sided are the claims of the Russians, who think it i« perfectly all right for them to test 30 bombs in a row, cluttering the atmosphere beyond any previous degree, but it is not permissible for the U. S. to test evem one or two weapons. This is more than a terror tactic; it is an irresponsible bully's tactic. . Khrushchev well knows that he can put a stop to our testing merely by stopping his own. and by agreement to A supervised truce in all nuclear testing. Instead, like the youthful bully who wants to throw his weight around and blame it on someone else, Khrushchev wants to keep on polluting the air while he cries crocodile tears and bellows: "Look what you made me do." What /s on 'Adult' Theme? Frequently these days, in connection with the reviews of movies, plans and TV shows, one reads that the drama under discussion treats of an "adult" theme. This seems to be a rather extreme way of say. ing that the performance is not one you should let your children see, unless you want them to find out all about preversions, brutality, and MX, with all three letters in capitals. Although it is certainly a good thing to have such dramatic efforts labeled so that children are not ex- IMMed to them without warning, we object to the description of auch themes as "adult" or "mature." They are anything but! The most adult and mature thing in the world ia a fine and wholesome marital relationship between two people who respect each other, and do not descend to vio- lew*, perversion or brutality in t|Mir treatment of each other. On tbt other hand, nothing is more -«rttd*Jy puerik thao moat of the plots of the dramas advertised aa "mature" and "for adults only." There are three kinds of dramatic performance.?—comedy, tragedy and erotic. Comedy and tragedy deal \\-ith all the multitude of human ups and downs, and when the plays are done by actors and directors of talent, skill and human sympathy, they usually carry meaning for young as well as old. Erotic plays are something else again; they are intended only to appeal to the sensations and profit from the appetites of people for whom aex is the bigge*t thing in life. Young people can be harmed by such dramas because they en- courge a debased set of values. To call such playi "adult" or "mature" i* to compound the damage they tan do by making it appear to young and inexperienced people thai the themes they portray are, indeed, what one cares most about whan be it« mature adult, Washington Mtrry-Go-Round . . . Dairy Farmers Lose Ouf fo Teamsfers in Battle over Milk in Ma/or Cities By DREW PEARSON Copyright, 1961 by the Bell Syndicate, WASHINGTON There are some important figures behind the New York milk strike—of interest to housewives, farmers, and labor. During the past 10 years, from 1951 to 1961. the wholesale price of milk paid to farmers has-decreased. During the same 10. years the. retail price of miJk as purchased by the housewife has gone up—about 130 per cent. This increase has been chiefly due to successive wage boosts demanded by and given to the Teamsters Union. In 1951 farmers in the New York milkshed received 12.1 cents per quail for their milk. Ten years later, despite an increase in the cost of almost everything the farms buys and despite the general inflation, the wholesale price of milk had gone down. He was getting 11.09 cents per quart. Meanwhile the retail cost of milk was 20.9 cents a quart in 1931 and went up to 33.05 cents 1 in 196041. While these prices are for the New York area, the same general pattern has held in other parts of the United States. The farmer's price has either been the same or gone down, while the cost of milk to the consumer has zoomed. The Teamsters, who called the strike in the New York area and control dairy -workers and dairy truck drivers in most areas, are now getting a base pay of $100.50 a week in New York. Added to that they get fringe benefits, plus 2;V'a per cent commission on home delivered milk, plus I- 1 j on commercial deliveries. Thus, as the retail price of milk rises, their pay increases. In the Chicago area, an investigation showed that some truck drivers who serviced Irotcls and restaurants made $30,000 a year, while an annual Teamster's in- some of 410,000 was not uncommon, ' In contrast i an average dairy farmer working his own farm can make around $50 a week. Meanwhile,, farmers in the. New York milkshed have already taken a cut of 15 cents per hundredweight in their price, because the milk they produce during the strike has to be sold at sacrifice prices for cheese and manufactured products. Cows can't stop giving milk merely because of the Teamsters. All this is why sentiment is growing for a national milk board, similar to the Railroad Labor Board which would step in and prevent a strike that cuts off the milk of mothers and children, NOTES ON THE NEWS- Two Roosevelt Ladies Anna Roosevelt Halstead was a blonde, gay, rosy-cheeked young lady of about 21 when she first came to Washingon with her father when he became President of the United States. Her children. Srstie and Buzzy, tfien about }he same age as Caroline Kennedy, helped make the White House bedlam. Last week, a quarter of a century and two wars later, Anna came back to Washington, still rosy-checked, a little grayer, but still gay. .But if she has. not changed, witness her mother, now ,77 years old. "Mother came to see us in Detroit the other day," Anna recalled. "She had to speak in SaginaA', Michigan, at 6.30, then was driven to Albion. Michigan, where she spoke again at 9 p. m., then drove to our house outside Detroit where she arrived a little after midnight. "Her young secretary was exhausted. But mother was up early next morning. We had a brunch for her at 11 and she was off on another speaking engagement a noon. Nobody can keep up with her." , • • • Beginning of a Myth . When Harry Truman was chairman of the Senate Investigating Committee, he censored one paragraph of his report on Pearl Harbor which showed how Gen. Douglas MacArthur, long after the Japanese attack, had been caught napping in the Philippines. Thus began the McArthur myth which Harry himself could not dispel even when he fired MacArthur. Now, 20 years later, the Saturday evening Post and ex-Harvard Historian Samuel Eliot Morrison, in a penetrating diagnosis of the Pearl Harbor tragedy, have told the story which the Truman committee previously censored. "The debacle in the Philippines was never investigated," reports Morrison in The Saturday Evening Post, "but these facts stand out: "In spite of the Asiatic fleet's having a purple code machine, which enabled it to crack all the secret Japanese messages, and in spite of Gen. MacArthur's having nine hours warning that Japan had assaulted Pearl Harbor, his planes were caught grounded at noon. Yet Gen. MacArthur became a national hero, while Gen. Short and Admiral Kimmel were retired under a cloud." Note — Stunner Welles, under Secretary of State during* the period before Pearl Harbor, warn- lac. ed both the Army and the Navy that an attack was* likely to be aimed at Hawaii. His warning went unheeded • • • Too Much Castor Oil The government has put a lot of surplus up for sale in recent years, ranging from destroyers to .bath mats, but the most interesting surplus, up for sale flght now, is castor oil The government has enough castor oil on hand to give all the children in the United States a dose every week for about ten years—if it was refined. It has a total of 155.676,000 pounds. This is far more than Mussolini used when his Fascist black shirts were harassing Italian Democrats with forced dosages of castor oil. In fact, this is probably the largest amount of castor oil ever amassed by one person or agency. "Sales," said a spokesman for the General Services Administration, "will be over a five year period so as not to disrupt the' market. "No," he explained, "U cannot be used for purging purposes. It would have to be refined for. human consumption. This castor oil is used in lubricants for turbines and jet engines and is a key ingredient in the manufacture of nylon."
