"COUMINT WE FIND A SAFKK SUMMIT','" MRS. ELEANOR KOOSEVELT The United States has lost one of the great' women leaders in the country's history in the death of Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt. ' ' The nation's First Lady for 12 years as the . wife of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, she later became known as the First Lady of the World through her extensive work in behalf of humanitarian programs around the globe. At an age when most women were sitting in a rocking chair cooing to their great-grandchildren, Mrs. Roosevelt was running across the world, obtaining interviews, writing articles, making speeches, continuing to work tirelessly for the things in which she believed. She was globetrotter, lecturer, newspaper columnist, magazine writer, book author, chairman of the United Nations Commission on Human Rights and United Stales delegate to the U.N. General Assembly, among many activities. "I hate the idea that I might ever lose touch with the people," she said once, and she never did. An example of her interest is known to Anderson people. It was several years ago that she paid a tribute to Anderson College and the community by visiting the city to speak at a Model United Nations Assembly conducted under college sponsorship for high school students of central Indiana. Mrs. Roosevelt was one of the most influential women of the 20th Century. She typified the realization of the dreams of the female crusaders of the ]i)lh Century who threw off the restrictions of the Victorian age. She was one of the most admired but also one of the most villified women. She won the deep affection of many and the bitter hatred of some. But she always shod criticism and downright libel easily. She- remained unruffled by vicious attacks on her character and motives. The jokes and whispering campaigns directed at her faded as she grow increasingly in stature and her advice and counsel were sought by the great and near-great of many nations. The problems and hopes of the common people occupied a major portion of the time and seemingly boundless energy of Mrs. Roosevelt, who had been born into the sheltered life of wealthy aristocracy. The love and respect she held because of her devotion and dedication to the welfare of the common people were emphasized when she observed her 78th birthday anniversary last month in a hospital. She received more than 8,000 letters from admirers around the world. A truly remarkable person, Mrs. Roosevelt was * .woman of honesty, courage and good will. The BUCCCSS of her labors for the welfare of mankind will stand as a lasting monument. WHAT'S BEHIND WIGS? The question before the house is: Why do woman like wigs? They like them well enough tn buy them in great and increasing numbers. They like them so well that many a woman's club agenda days includes a wig party—which, we are reliably told, involves trying on various wigs and squealing delightedly at each successive transformation. But why? Anyone who tries to account for the vagaries of women is, granted, looking for trouble. As any man of reasonable intelligence quickly learns, the female of the special is given to unaccountable behavior. Knowing all this, we yet venture the opinion that women like wigs because of a deep need to change their appearance periodically. They're constantly switching hairdos and even, if their husbands don't yelp too loudly, hair color. The wigs just make it easier. That, accounts for it —but we're still not sure we like it. VETERANS DAY PARADE An attractive and lengthy procession has been arranged for Saturday evening when a Veterans Day parade will be staged in downtown Anderson. Streets are expected to be lined with spectators for the event, which will be a highlight in a program that will also include ceremonies tomorrow afternoon dedicating salute guns from the decommissioned USS Indiana. The guns have been placed at East Maplewood and Memorial Park cemeteries as tributes to the war dead. Persons who gather to witness tomorrow evening's parade will be paying a tribute lo the American dead on the field of battle. At the same time they will be giving recognition to those now serving in the Armed Forces, veterans and others who have been ready at all times to defend freedom and liberty. Veterans Day is particularly in honor of those who have made the supreme sacrifice of life itself. It is good to honor those dead whose lives were given on the altar of freedom. Jt is good to remind ourselves that, but for them and for those who also served and yet survived, our liberties would bo ground into the dust by tyrants. But when all the words have been spoken it is time to think: What next? The sincerest tribute we can pay to those who have served on the field of battle is the tribute of devoted service to the Ihings for which they fought. Jf our words are not to ring hollowly across the graves of the fallen, we must think through and restate our dedication lo the cause of freedom and individual human worth. Ami beyond that, we must work for this cause and not. content ourselves with words. RED MOON MOONSHINE Soviet statements, as is well known, are not necessarily to be believed. This is true not only in the broad field of politics, but also in scientific and technical fields, where the Russians sometimes claim prior discovery without much warrant. The latest example, showing exaggeration at least, is in astronomy. Most people know that we see only one side of the moon, the other being always turned away from us. Hence the excitement when in October, 1959, the Russians announced that Iheir Lunik 111 had taken pictures of the reverse side of the moon. Actually the shots were not directly behind the moon, so that one-sixth of the normally unseen portion was not shown, and part of what was shown was already familiar. Now the University of Arizona astronomical laboratory has published an analysis of the pictures. It questions some of the alleged discoveries, especially a new mountain range named by Russia's astronomers the Soviet Mountains. Despite apparent errors, the Russians also have made some interesting finds. One was an addition to the known number of so-called "seas," which are grcal depressions I hat do nut appear tti contain water. But the validity of .some Russian assertions can only be checked when the lunar programs reach the mapping stages.. Until then, any Russian claim is open to considerable question.

The directory was a 7-hy-lO- nch card, on which were printed :he names and numbers of the 'irst 34 subscribers to the serv- ce, which had been established in April of 1900 by the late Earl A. Tull. In Mr. Tull's handwriting were the names and numbers of 15 additional patrons.

The sale was effective on Nov. 1. Installation of dial . equipment is scheduled within 18 months. In looking back over the history of the company, members .of the Tull family have recalled many nteresting incidents, dating back .0 the start of service, when Maude Lewis was operator. Excerpts from the history follow: The first toll report issued July 1900 showed $27.97 the total imount of toll, of which the local company received for their commission, $6.99. The balance was mailed to the New Long Distance Company of Indianapolis.
