Maynard Correspondent _ Randalia Correspondent Lima Correspondent EDITORIAL THE PASSING OF RAYMOND M. DEMING The entire community was shocked recently at the news of the passing of Dr. Raymond M. Deming. In the field of education it is men like Dr. Deming who make the greatest contributions, for he was dedicated to his work. Not seeking material advancement, but only seeking to give and share, such a man leaves a profound impression in the lives of many. There is no measure of what a man like Dr. Deming has left. But, we know that there is a record of his accomplishments in the hearts of many Americans all over who worked with him and learned under him. Dr. Deming was blessed with seventy five years among us, the greater majority of which were of service to his fellow man and the coming generation. That is why a dedicated educator is among the very greatest of contributors to our ongoing society. Dr. Deming was a living example of this, and still is. While he is missed by many he has taken his place among the great that served Upper Iowa University and his country's young people. This was his greatest glory. THE COUNTY ATTORNEY'S RACE Two Fayette County lawyers and possibly a third will be seeking the Republican nomination for County Attorney in 1958. Incumbent County Attorney Mark D. Buchheit will be seeking his third term in that office, which he won after a rough and tough campaign in 1954. West Union Attorney Richard Donohue is opposing Buchheit. Donohue is from NeV Hampton originally and is active in West Union affairs. Speculation has been around the county that Fayette Attorney John W. D. Hofmeyer might run. When contacted by the LEADER, he only said that he had made "no decision, but the idea is not entirely out of my mind." It is always a healthy situation when the voters can take a choice of candidates for any office. Whether or not it will be a two or three way race is largely up to Mr. Hofmeyer at this time.

The issue is the same: How im- rmrtnnt to our defense is air power? The central figure of the debate iu 1925 was the well-rcmcml)ereti Brig- (ien. William "Billy" Mitchell, an early and earnest advocate of air jH>wer. Mitchell was being courtmartialed by the Army for criticuing the military brass for failure to build up our almost non-existent air force. Congress was divided over whether Mitchell was a crackpot or a genius. The question, again, is how important is the airplane to our defense"' Has it, or will It •oon, become antiquated by guided missiles? Those arc questions this session of Congress must attempt to answor. Who will make the Important decision? Two small groups of experts, the Senate and House sub-committees for Air Force appropriations, have major responsibility for supplying the answers. The conclusions thoy reach con determine the success or failure of our defense against aggression. Hearings on President Eisenhower's budget request for Air Force funds, including both missiles and planes, will be l>egiin by the committees within the next few weeks. This and a later column will be intended to give you a behind-the- scenes look at how those committees Uiinl; and function. First, the Senate sub-committee. Hotli Chairman Dennis Chavez, a \i »v Mexico Democrat, and ranking minority member I^veritt Saltonstall, a Massachusetts Republican, are men of unusual vision and ability Hen. ('have?, fought for more • money for our defense all last year, bucking the "economy" tide thai was running strongly. That he was right is now indicated by President Kispnhower's request for a supplemental defense appropriation for the remainder of this fiscal year. The New Mexico Senator has combined ability and 35 years of seniority to rUe to tha head at one of the most important and powerful committees in Congress. Replying to charges that Congress had cut military funds too drastically, he told us: "My figures show Congress has not been reluctant to provide the money to assure this country 's safety. We are going to keep right on providing every cent needed to maintain pur position as a world power." Two years ago Sen. Chavez, with what now proves to have been remarkable foresight, fought successfully to include a billion dollars more in the Air Force budget than the Administration had asked for or wanted. As much or more than any other man in Congress he has helped to build a strong U. S. air force. Sen. Saltonstall came to the Senate In 1944 and has twice been re-elected. As A former chairman of the Armed Services Committee, he has a thorough knowledge of our military strength and requirements. "The front line of our defense la SAC (Strategle Air Command) with the B -52, and in the months ahead, we hope, with the B-68. These are the weapons of today and todays defense must be built around them," Sen Saltonstall sold.
