6-Algona (la.),Upper D*» M6ln«» Thursday, Oct. 1, 1959 ;> | H>" ' *> »i ; kM NEWS MEDIUMS OV^DlD IT Like all newsmen, press, radio or TV, we stand strongly back of the principle of press freedom and the right of the American people 1o know what is going on without self-appointed censors stepping into the picture. But the spectacle of representatives of the news mediums turning portions of Khruschev's visilj particularly the one to the Garst farms, into a mob scene must have sickened many an American. It left us wondering if U.S. news mediums and their representatives have completely thrown overboard good, common sense. Originally there was to be a pool of 20 reporters allowed at the Garst farm while Mr K was on his visit. These in turn would represent the wire services, major radio and TV chains and networks. It didn't work out that way. According to the Des Moines Register, which itself had a considerable delegation present, there were 273 news men on the premises. James Reston of the New York Times com- "mented that "the reporters are not covering this story, they are smothering each other at the .same time." Reston laid the blame to "clumsy 'administration". He said Washington actually "doubled the damage." He should know; he was .on hand. At the Garst farm, the host in endeavoring 'to have a brief visit with Khruschev, found him- 'self considerably irritated, so much so that he !threw chopped cornstalks at some, and kicked several. One of those kicked was Harrison Salisbury nf the New York Times. Some 25 years ago this writer lost an election to "Hess" Salisbury, in a contest for . editorship of a university daily newspaper. Sal- 'isbury had the backing of Gray Friars, who controlled the Board of Student Publications. 'The writer had Iron Wedge support, but in the minqrity on the student board. The two groups named were senior "honorary" societies, actually ! political parties in disguise. This has nothing 'much to do with this editorial except that it •recalls old times 25 years later. And it is com- ;fort!ng to know that New, York Times men, as "well as their brethren in much smaller fields, I get kicked once in awhile. It is well realized that a visit such as that ', made by Khruschev and his party was an out' standing world news event*. Yet our common ! sense^should have allowed for a more sensible •method of handling arrangements and an elim- 'ination of mass confusion which seems to have 'repeatedly surrounded efforts to "cover" the', . event. - ^ . '""••* ' Even the Fairmont and New Dim Minn, •dailies sent its publisher and two or three other 'representatives down to Coon Rapids to help i swell the "press" coverage. We suspect our old ^friend Walt Mickelson and cohorts of wanting a •"day off" and found Khruschev's visit a good »excuse to go somewhere. And that can be re• peated many times over.

The result was that nobody seemed to have anticipated the problems of handling the press, radio and TV representatives from this country, Russia, and the rest of the world. The anger shown by Garst after Invasion of his premises, and what he hoped would be some element of privacy with his guest, is understandable. The same anger flared up from the west coast and for the same reason. If one of the aims of Khruschev's visif to the United States was to focus attention on himself and garner publicity for Communism, and to create turmoil and confusion, he had the full support of the press, radio and TV "- and all free. Maybe the visit will bring some lasting benefits; if it does, however, it will be in spite of the confusion created by news mediums. * * * GUESTS-OR PESTS! The fall hunting began Saturday, September 12, with the opening of the squirrel and rabbit season. Before all seasons close, over 350,000 lowans will either be the guests of farmers in whose fields they hunt—or they'll tie as much of a pest as the rats that steal the corn from hi& cribs. and jnore — * I*«ES v . ._-_ ALGONA UPf EH DBS MOINES 6CT, S, 1939 •* * * Hatbld fifowti, 6 farmer irt the Cofwith-Falrview Vidhity, tfiay have 'been the first man in the state finished with his corn -picking.

There is a minority however that definitely deserves to be termed "pests". The "guest" hunter always drives into the farmer's yard and asks, and never hunts in places his host says, not to.; '.J The "pest" sneaks into the back 40, leaving the gate-open—if he bothers to use the gate, : Usually, he climbs'through the fence, jbrfcak-i ing it down. He never climbs over by a post, as he should. , , ( . •,,: The-"guest" goes around; fields? ! wherje people are working and does not walk on seeded ground or through uncut grain. He never shoots, near barns, houses or livestock. * - < f > • i i The "pest" takes pot shots at anthing that strikes his fancy, whether his -target is near people, places or things. If he gets hungry he swipes fruiHrom the orchard, never thinking of paying The "guest" shares his game with his "host", offers to pay any damage he may have done, buys apples, eggs or anything else his host might have for sale, rather than just "borrow". Thank goodness Iowa has no large metropolitan areas and therefore many city dwellers have some farmer friend or relative on whose place they would be welcome anytime. Therefore, we like to think we .have feweK pests than most states. Still- r • * * * ' "FEDERAL AID" A MISNOMER Only little children believe they gef something for nothing — or for just "being good." Yet school boards plump for "Federal Aid" to build local schools. States and counties de- .•marid their share of Washington billions for roads. Areas that call themselves depressed want Federal dollars to make them prosperous. Thousands, expect jobs to be brought to them by Federal subsidies rather than to .exert'enough energy to go out and get their own jobs, where the jobs are to be had. Builders Want Federal aid so they can build more housing at a profit. "Federal,Aid?" There is no such thingi The money can only come from the taxpayers, from you. For every $1 in Federal "aid" the average state gets back from Washington, you PAY to Washington $7 in Federal taxes. Top- heavy payrolls and administrative expenses now, as in the past, continue to absorb a good share of all tax funds collected. Fundamentally, a state, a county or, a city would be better off to keep its money and pay its own bills — and save the difference. But to "get it from Uncle Sam" certainly has a powerful pull for those who believe you "get something for nothing." In times of real depression the Federal government may be the only force large and powerful enough to develop and promote anti-recession measures. But the tendency doesn't end there. And that explains, in part, why our Federal debt is now the highest in the history of the nation. * * * The next time some head of a foreign states wants to come over here to "see America" why don't we let him do it. As Mrs Khruschev remarked at Coon Rapids at the Garst home: "This is the first real home I've seen in the United States." •SALVAGED .MANPOWER '.'4r' since 1896 and. over 75 percent of Uncle Sam would like to-placq all American families own auto- more violators of federal law on probation instead of sending them to jail — if for no other reason than to save*money.i • J.t-»tbsta' $4.81 a day to keep a prisoner!in internal Revenue Service way for a week or so. * * * • The tipper Dee Moines had for some time printed favorite recipes of various persons in this area, including JDr. Schaap's recipe for snake, meat or Herman (Bowman's recipe for fruit cake. Now Prairie township came up with something new in -the way of chefs. Mrs Robert Rockwood* Sr., 68, was holding a neighborhood 'booking school" in..her kitchen each Saturday mrning. Her "students" were two neighbor iboys, Chuckle Murr and Billy Punke — and they were • only seven years old! To date, the lads had made cup cakes, peanut butter cookies and fudge. Main drawback seemed to be the fact that Mrs Rockwood insisted that the tboys read the recipes before they 'began their lesson each , week. This was a little rough, for both were in second is rather and Behind The Movie Sets BUDDY MASON heard ridiculing their sheet. Bathgate's reminder is: "... do ydti knbw what people use these (newspapers) for? They roll them up and swat their pup,pies for wetting on the rug.'They spread them on the floor when they're painting the walls. They wrap fish in them, shred them: Up and pack their two-bit china in them when they move, or else they pile them up in the garage until an inspector declares them a fire hazard — tout — * .* , * But a newspaper is a few things more.
