r v*i (l«t.) DM MdiMt Tuesday, July 26, I960 IS,' li YOUNGER MEN TO THE FORE The 1960 political year will see the younger leaders .in both parties moving up to replace the "elder statesmen". When Jack Kennedy, at 43, and Lyndon Johnson, at 51, were nominated for the top spots ort the national Democratic ticket, the cry ."too yountf" came from some opposition camps. But the Republicans, too, are destined to have their standard bearers young men. Richard Nixon at 48 is only a shade older than Kennedy. Each" started his elective political career at fhe same time, in 1946, successfully. No\v the Republicans of Iowa have nominated Jack Miller as their candidate for the U. S. Senate. Miller is 44. He will oppose Governor Herschell Loveless, who is 49. Thus, each party despite itself and some of its older members who might like to handle the reins a little longer, is turning to younger men for its vote appeal. Until Kennedy's nomination, nobody seemed to think that anyone in their forties was what you would call "young." Just a nice approach to middle age! Lacking much else to attack Kennedy with, the tag of "youth" was applied. But in view of subsequent developments, it looks like most of the candidates for major office to be presented by each party will be under 50. Both candidates for governor, also come under that mark. And maybe it's a good thing. On the national and international scene one can hardly say "the old guard" has succeeded in giving us a world of stability or calm. Perhaps a new generation of young leaders can better unravel the mistakes of the past. Let us hope so, because regardless of who wins, younger men will have the leader's role. Upper PCS ill E.

OFFICIAL CITY AND COUNTY NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING RATES ON REQUEST NO'NEED-FOR A U-2 The question is still being debated as to whether or "hot the flight of U-2 reconnaisance planes over Russian territory was or is a good or bad idea. But one thing is certain; the Russians don't need such planes or flights. They can obtain most of the basic information they may want by simply reading American publications. The July 18 issue of U.S. News & World Reports devotes five pa'ges, complete with maps, showing exact locations and a diagram of how the underground ICBM base is arranged. This information is therefor not restricted or the magazine would not have published it; thus if the Russians want the information all they have to do is spend less than a half dollar. It might be presumed that the Russians could obtain this information even if it were kept restricted, but not for less than half a dollar. Nothing like telling all your secrets, free and easy like! 2 PLUS 2 'EQUALS 6 The New York Herald-Tribune, the other day, conducted a unique research into the mat-, ter of income taxes and how they are figured. It sent six men, each with the name of George Jackson, to six different Internal Revenue service men and asked them to compute the tax of George Jackson from an identical set of income and deduction figures. Each of the six came up with a different result, ranging from an additional $26.69 after withholding, down ta $7.05. Various interpretations of the rules accounted for the differences, not bad arithmetic. Strangely enough, though, none of the George Jacksons had a refund coming. It's easy to see why ordinary people sometimes make mistakes, too. * * * REPUBLICANS FORGET THE COUNTRY EDITORS Eagle Grove Eagle — Along with some 400 other Iowa weekly editors (most of whom are Republicans) we woke up last week and realized that someone has set the state Republican convention for a Tuesday night and Wednesday. In the newspaper business that amounts to almost a sacrilege. .Weekly editors don't go to weddings or family reunions on Wednesday, that is the day we save the country. This must be a part of this "Times are Changing — this is a young man's world" business that we are hearing so much about lately. But just like Harry Truman who stayed away from the Democratic National Convention there will be a lot of weekly editors who have been life-long supporters of the Republican party who won't attend the 1960 State Republican convention. While Jdck Kennedy, who is 43, was worrying about looking too young before T-V cameras, his chief opponent and now running mate, Lyndon Johnson, who will be 52 in August, was worrying about looking too old. Actually, Kennedy is older than he looks and Johnson is younger than he looks. And Nixon is right in between them at 48. * * * Weil, the Congo got its independence on July 1, and on July 15 United Nations troops are being sent there to restore order, or try to, while everyone else flees the country.

Social critics have given us various uncomplimentary labels. We have been called an "Organisation State." an "Acquisitive Culture," an "Affluent Society." But the most stinging criticism is that which has labeled us as the age of the "Goof-Off" ... the era of the job half done. ' From coast to coast our country unfortunately seems to have become populated with laundrymen who won't iron shirts, waiters ' who won't serve, manufacturers who deliberately build things to wear out, and workers who engage in "feather-bedding," executives whose minds are en the golf course, students who take cinch courses, professors who leach cinch courses, organizations that sell academic degrees, people who buy academic degrees, public officials • whose primary concern is riot to lead, not to think, not to express an opinion, but simply to stay in public office. Further, we have moved into the new era of the two- hour lunch, the all day coffee break, the misleading advertiser, the paid-off disc jockey, the company credit card and the extravagant tax-free expense account, the rigged ielevition show, the dishonest butcher. Those who engage in one form or another of moral depravity range from the high school flunky who wants to become, a beatnik to the Congressman who puts his bar bill on the public voucher.
