1-Alflflrto (10.) Upper DM MolnM Twday, May 31, I960 CRYSTAL BALL GAZING We have yet to ever see, talk to, or hear of Just where they go to get their information, and how they can project the views of a few into the views of millions, is a modern miracle of crystal ball gazing. And we think much of it is poppycock! . In West Virginia, in the presidential primary, only one poll gave Senator Kennedy a chance to win, and that was a private poll paid for by Kennedy himself. Everybody in the know turned out to be dead wrong, including Kennedy himself .who professed not to believe what his own poll told him. It is. reported that Vice President Nixon, too,-hqs been having a private poll conducted. Nobody explains where the money is coming from, maybe something left over from an earlier "fund." Anyway, the result of this poll, Washington insiders report, is that Nixon's big effort will start in September and that he will use jets, jet- props, trains and automobiles all pointed in directions that his polls indicates he should take. It looks very much as though the chief reason politics is so unpredictable is because so many poll experts are all the time making predictions. * * * WHO'S CALLING THE SIGNALS? The case of the U-2 has been well cussed and discussed, and only the fate of Pilot Powers now remains in doObt. But there is one thing certain, there are a lot of mixed up signals between the State Department at home, our embassies abroad, and. the White House. Two days before the President went to Paris, the State Department indicated that aerial spying would continue. This in itself touched off Khruschev's tirade which made a summit meeting impossible. One of Mr K's major points of attack was that the U.S. had indicated spying by air over Soviet Russia would continue. Then, President Eisenhower in Paris formally announced that the flights had been ordered stopped. This was a surprise to everyone, including the State Department and Khruschev. Had we announced that two days earlier the wind would have been taken out of the Soviet sails, and the summit might still have had a chance. Evidently a case of mixed up signals. We hope we find out pretty quick who the quarterback is in international affairs. * * * When a mistake occurs in a newspaper, the reporter blames her old typewriter ribbon, the typesetter blames the reporter, the proof-reader blames the proof, and the editor blames the proofreader. Those are the only four people in a nation of 150 million people who don't blame the editor. — T. M. Kelley, Emmetsburg Reporter. * * -'' * One housewife says her husband is quite a musician. He goes out fit as a fiddle and comes back tight as a drum. . $284,000 'PN THE SIDE' For "deliberately having misled his superiors", Dr. Henry Weldi, head of the antibiotics division of the Food and Drug Administration, was recently asked to resign from his $17,500 a year job. • . This was about the time that Khruschev and the presidential primaries Were taking top billing in our daily press, so many missed the news. What Dr. Wefdi was discovered tb have done was to receive an income "on the side" of $284,000 since 1953 for doing business with firms his office was presumed to police. Weldi applied for and is to receive disability retirement as of June 1. . This conflict of interest case didn't make much noise, but it is no minor case. Here was a man who received compensation from outside groups he was presumed to have policed. If it had been most people, they would be called some pretty nasty, mean names; The halo around the heads of some federal appointees since 1953 is certainly getting tarnished. * * * HIGH FIELD OF FINANCE Recent announcement that the Chicago & North Western Railroad had purchased the Minn eapolis & St. Louis Railroad (subject to stock holder approval by the M. & St. L.) may have caused some lifting of eyebrows. The North Western has not been much of a money-maker these past t few years; the M. & St. L. has been one of the* comparatively few profit-producing lines. But the realm of high finance enters into the picture. A recent business article on the subject has this to say: "The M. & St. L. will receive 3% million in cash-if the sale is completed this year it will produce an enormous tax loss that will mean a cash tax recovery of approximately 3 million. The sale would also produce a tax loss carryover of somewhere between 20 and million." The company would thus have a large tax loss carryover available for a five-year period. The M. & St. L. indicated it intended to purchase an established business of some other type. The realm of high finance with regard to income tax losses and gains is indeed interesting. It looks like the M. & St. L. is getting out of 30 THE8B if Julia, the .studio jhlm- vv=.* and if the .defendant afree to get out of town right away —-and then they geJ Algona and come dovfrn to *UVKI- WWM«««» —v-» • mere."

DOCTOR UNDER FIRE — When some Congressmen tried to give the Capitol physician an expense allowance of $1,500 a year one lone voice of protest was raised. Rep. H. R. Gross, Rep.- lowa, thought the physician, Admiral Calver, was doing pretty well with his present salary of 523,326.56. Adding $1,500 a year would have the doctor making more than any ordinary member of Congress. As Gross put it.
