C.r .. ju.v^- « - ... % t.- in '/ fle$ fllomes ANONYMOUS MAIL One local resident showed us an onony- letter he received in which the inference that rife was not properly looking after his Children. He was somewhat steamed up about the matter, and wrote this reply« "In response to the anonymous clipping sent me, I would like to soy that my wife and I have been married 18 years, and both of us have worked at times, but if we are both gone at the same time, we have two children who are older than a lot of hired baby sitters. Now if this person or persons can figure out a way for me to pay the bills and support the family, without my working, I will be glad to stay home all day with the children and personally guarantee that my children will not be without me at any time." The .father has a good point. Sometimes our little darlings may not act as proper as we would like them to, but kids will be kids, get into things, and sometimes trouble. But working fathers, and working mothers on occasion, are usually working for a reason, to pay the bills and to give those kids food, clothing and education. * * * LIFE SEES, KNOWS ALL Life magazine is either one of the most 'irresponsible publications in the nation, or one of the sharpest.' Not so long ago, it was Life whjch managed tp get half of South America mad at us with an article about South America, which among other Jhings suggested that one South American nation be dismembered and divided up among fts neighbors, cannibal style. , i Now Life is trying to convince us that it has microphones planted even in the rear of butomobiles carrying prominent Democrats. A recent issue says that Former President Harry S. Truman and House Speaker Sam Rayburn fiave decided that only Iwo men should be considered as the Democratic party's presidential nominee. * This decision was reached, Life says, while Truman and Rayburn were riding back to Wash- Jngton in Rayburn's car after a dinner party. How Life would know what the two men talked about inl this private drive jsn't explained.^Both ^ ^•C'^^i^! _u r '" "-"*' ~'fri&*JL membership. By giving the impression that Truman and Rayburn are acting in a "kingmaker" role, Life hopes that supporters of other candidates will be affronted. Life says Kennedy was rejected because of hi* youthful appearance and that his Catholic faith would hurt him more than help him. Sen» ator Humphrey was said not to have the > bearing of a presidential candidate. Adlai Stevenson was reported as discarded because he had been twice defeated and a new face is needed. The magazine pulled all of these points out of thin air, hoping that by some mysterious magic it would eventually damage the Democratic candidate, whoever he might be. 'Truman and Rayburn were said to agree -that either Senator Johnson of Texas or' Senator Stuart Symington of Missouri would be the only logical candidates. Rayburn, asked about the Life mogazine story, sdid it was 'far-fetched", and that he and Truman visited as -two old\friends, but certainly "did not try to settle on these candidates nor d,ld he retail having discussed the presidential can" didates. -- When one stops to'consider that 95 pel-cent of all newspapers, and about 100 percent of all big magazines in this country are Republican- dominated, it's a really remarkable thing^ tp find a few Democrats getting elected to office, now and then. * * '* LATIN AMERICAN IMPORTANCE ;, Iowa Falls Citizen — The uproar over confirmation and resignation of Clare Booth Luce may have_ served one useful purpose: Perhaps it focus* ed attention on why it is important that We send some" truly capable diplomatic representatives to the Latin American countries. We should have learned that from Cuba, of course, and the Nixon "incident." A year before the Cuban rebellion we sent Earl E. T. Smith, a man without diplomatic experience'or'knowledge of thai country as our ambassador to Cuba. And we ended up, alone, in the Batista camp, apparently unaware of even whatjwas going on^ t The Nixon episode w t as not aimed at Nixon. It was aimed at the "U.S. — all of us. Is Latin America—and,Latin American goodwill—important to' us? • We constantly depend upon Latin American votes to support our point of view in' the United Nations. There are 22 Latin American votes. There is one .of ours. ; . , 4 Of. the 77 "articles listed as critical during rnen.hav'e denied*anything of the jfind.'
