BRITAIN'S UPS AND DOWNS Someone is always claiming that Britain has had it. It's bad enough when an enemy believes it and acts upon the belief. What bothers the British is when a friend says it. Before World War II, some people who should have known what they were talking about predicted the imminent collapse of Britain. Just recently, former Secretary of State Uenn Acheson, now a private citizen-adviser to the President, said Britain is "played out" as an independent power. There is always some truth to such charges. Britain was weak at the beginning of World War II and only 20 miles of English Channel water saved her from defeat. (But it was the very existence of the channel which had allowfl her to slide into her predicament, not moral we.Vness as the Germans believed.). After the war, Britain relinquished the greatest empire in history — peacefully and intelligently, let it be said. Then she found even her traditional role as an aloof balance in the affairs of Europe eclipsed by the Common Market. For a while, Britain seemed to be searching for a new role as "broker" between East and West. This has been abandoned for a realistic acceptance of the fact that Britain's political acceptance of the fact that Britain's political future is inextricably linked with that of the United States and her economic future with Europe. Britain is. of course, no longer an independent power, as Acheson says. But what country is? If Britain's initiative is limited by decisions made in Washington, so is Washington limited by the Kremlin, and the Kremlin by us. Everyone is limited by The Bomb. There is no such thing as independence on the national scale. However, the furor caused by Acheson's remarks—which obscured his real point, the fiituro of NATO—shows that some Britons have not yet forgiven history. This is reflected in a certain element of anti-Americanism and th« criticism the British heap upon themselves and their government. Others, while recognizing the truth voiced by Acheson are irked that it was mentioned at a time when Britain is adopting a tough line against France and West Germany in its bargaining to enter the exclusive Common Market. In any event, no one should he foolish enough to believe that because one phase of British history is finished, the British people also are finished. They are eminently experienced in triumphing over change. They are still our most valued partner. They will be heard from for a long time to cumo— especially when the chips are down. CAN'T BOG THEM DOWN Run—don't walk—to your friendly antique shop if you'r« of * mind to pick up a cranberry BCOOP for that spot beside the fireplace. The old wood scoops, long collectors' items, may soon be joined by the steel-fingered, hand-wielded scoops of recent vintage. The reason: motorized underwater pickers are coming into .use. The antique fraternity aside, there'll be few tears shed by the rest of the population, just so long as the cranberry sauce— it matters not how—continues to grace the holiday tables of the land. DAUGHERTY ELECTED Members of the Indiana County Recorders Association have chosen a Madison County man to serve as president of their organization for the ensuing year. Karl Daugherty, Madison County recorder, was elected to the office last week during an annual convention of county officials at Indianapolis. Elevation of Mr. Daugherty to the association's presidency is a personal tribute to his endeavors in behalf of the group's program for constant improvement in county governmental operation. It also reflects favorably upon his home county and the fine service he has rendered in carrying out the duties and meeting the obligations of hi? office. REDS FIND ICELAND HOT The wave of de-Stalinization that emanated from Russia in 1956 has not yet subsided but is lapping the shores of, of all places, Iceland. Thirteen Stalinists among the 40 members of the Icelandic Communist Party's Central Committee were purged in one hard-fought, all-night session. Iceland, with a population of 180,000 in an area a little smaller than Indiana, was once probably the world's most neglected civilized land. Its geographic location made this inevitable, though world war and the air age have made it an important way station in the North Atlantic. While it has no army or navy, it is a valued member of NATO, which maintains a radar base there. Iceland's I,032-year 7 old Althing is the world's oldest parliament. It is unlikely that an upstart idea like Communism could ever break this record of freedom. HITLER'S PREDECESSOR The man who was succeeded by Hitler is now, at 77, living peacefully at Norwich, Vt., and writing his memoirs. This is Heinrich Bruening, a respected German jurist who, through his service in World War I, became favorably known to Field Marshal, later President, Paul von Hindenburg. Jn 1930 Von Hindenburg made Bruening chancellor, or chief executive, of Germany. Bruening led a nation impoverished by its war effort and the later currency inflation. A rising tide of discontent brought many votes to the Communists and to Hitler's Nazis. Bruening tried to suppress Hitler without nvorstcpninj. 1 - lo.ral limits, lie was also working I'nr a reduction in the reparations thai the Germans had to pay for their war destructiveness, and trying lo find markets abroad for German products. Hard working, sincere and modest, he was sabotaged by scheming generals and politicians, notably Gen. Kurt Schleicher. Schleicher worked on the prejudices of the senile Hindenburg until the latter dismissed Bruening. Hitler thus came to power, and began his reign of blood. Poetic justice was realized when Schleicher became an early victim of his tyranny. Somehow Bruening escaped death or imprisonment, and came to the United States in 1937. Thereafter he taught government at Harvard University until he reached the age of retirement. When his memoirs are published they promise to shed interesting light on a troubled era.

MYERS, Ph.D. FAMILY CONVERSATIONS KNIT PRECIOUS BONUS Once I was a breakfasl guest n a home which consisted of a grandmother, the parents and eight children from three to eight een years of age. It was a rare occasion for me. Every person at that table spoke some and no one for very long. When one spoke, the rest were silent, interesled, appreciative listeners. ENCOURAGED TO SPEAK I recall thai once the mother said something to draw out a remark from the third-lo-young- esl child and lhe eldesl son saw lo il lhal lhe youngest child also spoke and was heard by all the rest. This participation in family conversation by all its members was a praclice of Ihis family which I had observed during earlier visits. Some parents still suppose thai children should be seen and nol heard in Uie family circle. Not nearly all other parents are conscious of the preciousness of par- licipalion in family conversation. Too oflcn lhe family meal is ealen in haste or silence or with one or two members, usually the par- cnls, doing mosl of lhe lalking. SOME DON'T TALK Sometimes lhe parents or older children talk of matters of no interest to lhe younger ones. A teen-ager rarely talks at all in some homes. Occasionally, a relative or other guest will compliment the parents on the chile who is usually silent in the fam ily group and the parents may alas, enjoy this compliment. They should knmv thai Ihis sil- nt child may (ccl uncomfortable' nd unworthy. They should seek •ays to induce him to talk. The 'ay to do it is to prove wiUiout 'ords lhat when this child does alk, others of the family listen ppreciativcly.

Government Employes Warned About Gifts By RUTH MONTGOMERY WASHINGTON: Tile Christmas season is at hand, and the annua warnings have been posted against government employes accepting presents from firms doing business with Uncle Sam. No special admonilion is necessary lo remind civil servanls thai laking gifts from foreign govern; ments is equally laboo. Since all Americans are theoretically born free and equal, il seems a pity that they do not remain so, after they enter government service. U.S. employes can read the newspapers, and so can most of Lheir wives. It is lousy luck, therefore, thai a local paper has carried a smiling piclure of Mrs. Dean Rusk, spouse of Ihe secretary of slate, posing with quanti- Lies of silk yardage draped over her arms. Sharing th» picture are the wives of the Korean ambassador and his informalion allache. The oulline discloses lhat Hie shim mering Korean silk is lo l>c made inlo a dress for Mrs. Rusk, as ; "unique Christmas present' frnm Ihp Kr>rp;m amhflssnrinr. han twice that amount of U.S. argcsse. The lavish gifls bestowed on President Eisenhower by both domestic and foreign givers reached astronomical proportions during lis two lerms. Such facls are well mown lo the little guy down the line in government, who struggles to support a family on his weekly take-home 'pay, afler tax and rclirement deductions. A few y^ats ago, Uie seconc ranking mail in the office of pro- Locol was abruptly banished to a [ess glamorous job because King Saud of Saudi Arabian, whom he had conducted on a tour of America, presented his wile with an automobile. Anotlier publicized case was lhat of an official of Uie foreign aid program, whose wife acceplec a $3,000 diamond bracelet from Ihe Greek government. His resignation was immediately requested. Gifts or awards bestowed on Slate Department officials by other nations miisl legally be stored with Ihe department unti New York. Mr. Greenough is the grandson of the late Mr. and Mrs. liam F. Croan, whose-home was located on the southwest corner uf Slh and Jackson Sts. for many years. His mother, Mrs. Walter ). Greonough of Indianapolis, is the former Miss Katharine Croan, who was reared here and was [radualed from Anderson High School. Croan Grcenough's grandfather, William F. Croan, was a leader in education for many years. He taught Ihe firsl graded country school in Madison County, College Corner in Riehland Township where Ihe first graduation exer cises in a. graded country sclioo in the county were conducted. Later Mr. Croan became interested in the newspaper business purchasing a half interest in th Anderson Democrat in 1877. He also served as county superintendent of schools and was presi dent of Anderson University wher that school was established in tlu fall of 18% in a building on th northeast corner of lllh and Main Sts., later occupied by the Gram Hotel and razed in recent year: to make way for a parking lot Mr. Croan also was head o Western Normal College at Shen ictcd as Bloomlngton correspond- 'iit for an Indianapolis newspa- KT all semester and summers vorked as a statislician- and as* iistant bank examiner. Eventually, he was made cdi- or ol the Daily Student, a post lis father held exactly 25 years before. And as of today, as his alher before him had done, Wiliam C. Grecnough's name adorns he-spine of Ihree books with a 'ourth scheduled for early publi- calion. Not one to hang around tha nore publicized boites of New York, Croan and his wife, the ormer Doris Decker of Decker, Ind., after 20 years of residence, lave yet to enter the Stork Club.
