That county used to have a United Fund. But it was dropped after falling far short of its goal two years ago. That year the citizens of Dodge were hit by an all-out drive for funds to send the high school band to the Rose Bowl Parade. This campaign started about the same time the United Fund drive opened. The united drive suffered. Now the various agencies which participated in the United Fund in Ford County must go out in separate drives and attempt to raise money. Three of them have combined. The Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and Salvation Army — and will have a joint drive. But this still leaves another half-dozen or so who must go it alone or join together. This not only makes it tough for the contributor, who has a continuous string of solicitors asking him for money, but for those public-spirited citizens who work in the campaigns. No doubt, .the same persons will be called upon to work in more than one drive. We hope this never happens in Finney County. But it could if persons who give the united way fail to realize they ai*e giving to 10 organizations rather than one. It's nn to us. the givers, as to how long this county will continue to have a successful United Fund. Wish We Had Said It Too Many 'Experts' Sikeston, Mo., Daily Standard From two totally different quarters, men who make a specialty of studying communism are beginning to suggest that \ve have too many self styled "experts" on the subject. One is FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover, whose credentials in this field hardly need emphasis. The other is Father John F. Cronin, assistant director of the National Catholic Welfare Conference's Department of Social Action. "Communism: Threat to Freedom," his second book in the field, is drawing deserved attention. In the American Bar Assn. Journal, Hoover says: "Today far too many self-styled experts on communism are plying the highways of America, giving erroneous and distorted information. "This causes hysteria, false alarms, and misplaced apprehension by many of our citizens. "We need enlightenment about communism, but this information must be factual, accurate, and not tailored to echo personal icliosyncracies." Father Cronin, in his new book, likewise cautions Americans to be wary of the self-appointed specialists, including some whose credentials look pretty satisfactory at a hasty glance. In this category he would place some former agents of the FBI itself, some former FBI informants, and certain persons who have had first-hand contact with Communists as either party members or victims. Cronin argues that unless a former FBI man specialized in subversion, his agency experience does not qualify him as an expert. The value of one-tim e informants would be considerable, he suggests, only where they were placed close to the top Red sources in years more recent than 1955. Things change fast. As for defectors or victims, the measuring rod is much the same. The big questions are how up-to-date and accurate their information is. Like Hoover, Cronin thinks much of it old and misleading. This is not the first time the FBI chief has spoken out on this matter. A year ago, in a mesage to law enforcement officers in the United States, he said Americans need to understand communism, but added: "This cannot be achieved by dawdling at the spring of knowledge. It can only be accomplished by dipping deeply into thoughtful, reliable and authoritative source of information." Next time you see somebody get up and offer himself as an expert on communism, find out just how solid his background is, and how current his information. And remember that you have som e quite unassilable spe- . cialists standing, in effect, at your shoulder and advising such caution. Hal Boyle Says: Morale Boosters In Every Office pay if you .mad e more than two trips a day to the men's room." "Flannolmouth Fred" — He spends most of his time going around indiscriminately patting all the other employes on the back and saying, "You're doing a grand job." Secretly, he hopes this will bring him to the eye of management as a man with executive talent. But the rest of the hired hands are sour on Fred. They know that after they finish doing their work, he'll ask them to help him do his. "Rainbow-top Ro»alee"—The executive secretary, a glamor gal with a middle-aged spread, fondly believes she give s every man in the place a thrill by tinting her hair a different exciting color ev- orv month. She would be distressed to know that half the men merely think slit- is off hep rocker, and the other half thing her wig has faded. "Bankrupt Ben"—This guy is a reverse philanthropist. "Lend me $50." he wheedles. If you do, he feels that he has benefited you by giving you a fresh interest in living and a new hope—the wild hope that somehow, some day, he ma'y pav vou back.

But lie makes all the other employe's—who were born with only 11 Unim 1 *—feel like unrecognized geniuses. Drew Pearson Reports Kennedy Deal With Passman Slams Foreign Aid Battlers NEW YORK (AP)-No business office today is complete without its unofficial morale boosters. .Most lar^'p firms have a personnel department which officially tries to pep up the group loyalty of employes with such fiinge benefits as free turkey raffles, bowling leagues and annual picnic-s and dances. The attitude of the average hired hand toward these organized corporate goodwill matures ranges from one of darkest suspicion to one of ready opportunism. The philosophy of the opportunist may be expressed thusly: "If the company is giving it away for nothiny I'll take it—even if it's onlv a framed photograph of the board chairman. After all, I can throw liis picture away, and still keep t;ie frame." Hut in addition to its paid cheerleaders, overv office also has its quota of self-appointed joy spreaders. They take upon themselves the task of corn incinu tin- rest of the herd that life can .still be wondrous—even if a fellow does have to work every day for a living. Perhaps the following' cha'-- acters of thi< ilk are familiar in your own office: "Nostalgic Ned"—!!(• tries to make everyone feel grateful by telling how much wor-.e thing.-, used to be in the old days. "Whv." de whee/es, "Vou would not believe it.

He made a secret deal with Louisiana Congressman Otto Passman, arch-foe of Foreign Aid, to accept a compromise bill restoring $296 to $300 million of the House cuts. Apparently, the President feared his Senate leaders were fighting a losing battle and couldn't salvage more.than $300 million anyway. As it turned out, the Senate restored every penny of the original Foreign Aid authorization. ThL put the Senators in a strong bargaining position to deal with Passman. But, unknown to them, the President had already settled for a lesser figure than they could have demanded. Passman gave no inkling of the secret settlement when Senate and House conferees gathered behind closed doors for the showdown. He launched into an arm- waving tirade and threatened to stay there arguing against Foreign Aid "until the snows melt." When he saw that his forensics were having no effect on the senators, however, he apparently decided he couldn't browbeat them into giving up more concessions and played his trump card. He calmly announced that the President had agreed to accept a restoration of only $296 to $300 million. Dumfounded, Florida Sen. Spessard Holland expressed skepticism that Kennedy would have made such a deal. "Why don't you call tl. President and find out for yourself?" invited Passman. Later in the afternoon, Holland phoned the White House and was assured that Passman had told the truth. Result: The Senators gave up their fight and agreed to accept Passman's figures, which were almost $494 million less than the Senate had voted. Meanwhile, Holland received another jolt from his fellow Southerner, Mississippi Sen. J'hn Stennis, who turned on him savagely for sponsoring the Const'tutional amendment outlawing the poll tax. Flush-faced, Stennis threatened to retaliate by using his position on the Senate Appropriations Committee to block Holland's pet projects. The senator fr m Florida, wlio has always voted with the Southern bloc, could hardly believe Stennis would do this to him. "I have never been treated so shabbily," he complained to Senate leader Mike Mansfield. Indeed, Stennis has dropped his usual dignity and decorum since the Mississippi race riots. He hastily rushed an investigator to Oxford, Miss., for instance, after learning that his Mississippi colleague, Sen. Jirn Eastland, as sending investigates lo dig up dirt on the federal forces there. In fact, the whole Mississippi delegation has become unruly and rebellious. Mississippi Congressman Jamie Whitten refused to accept a single Senate amendment to a n Agriculture Appropriations bill. But once anaiii. his obstinacy hurt a fellow Southerner, Georgia Sen. Dick Russell, who is trying to get a peanut-processing plant for,Dawson, C-. Russell angrily accused Whitten behind closed doors of wangling three agriculture experimental stations for his own district, then refusing to appropriate money for a peanut plant in the heart of the peanut country. Th e riot-rocked University of Mississippi, incidentally, is also located in Whitten's district. Another Mississippi Congressman, wliile issuing bold pronouncements upholding the rioters, was taking no chances himself. At the height of the race trouble, Congressman Tom Abernethy in Washington removed his Mississippi license tlates from his'gleaming white car and hung District of Columbia tags in their place. While Congress was hung up over peanuts, pensions, and pork- barrel projects, there was such a rush for the exits that the leaders had trouble rounding up enough votes to make the results official. Only 279 congressmen could be flushed out of the cloakrooms and corridors, for example, to vote on the Foreign Aid bill. The remaining 158 congressmen, or at least most of them, had lit out for home on a matter of higher priority: their own re-election. Most of the Senators, facing i%* election this year, also deserted the Senate and hit the campaign trail. Among those who were missing during the final rollcalls: Aiken of Vermont, Bennett of Utah, Bottum of South Dakota, Capehart of Indiana, Carroll of Colorado, Clark of Pennsylvania, Fulbrtght of Arkansas, Gruening of Alaska, Hickenlooper of Iowa, Hickey of Wyoming, Jordan of Idaho, Long of Missouri, Magmt- son of Washington, and Morton of Kentucky. While Magnuson was away, the Senate voted to abolish the 6 per cent differential that Uncle Sam pays to West Coast shipbuilders. California Sen. Clair Engle tried frantically to phone Magnuson and Plead with him to use his considerable influence to block the measure in the Sen- atn-Jfpuse conference. But Magnuson was cruising aboard the atomic merchant ship Savannah, off the Washington Coast. fiarden City Telegram Published Dally Except Sunday and Five Holidays Yearly by The Telegram Publishing Company at 177 East Chestnut TELEPHONE BB 6-8232 Bill Brown . ._.„ „ Editor Mnrvln Smith ....

The treat, she explained to one and all, was onaccounta it was her teacher's birthday. How old was her teacher, the club ladies inquired — just to make conversation, of course. "Ummm," the student hesitated thoughtfully, "seventy-two, I think." (Forty-two, the club reckoned, was what she meant.) THR GRAMMAR lesson in a St. d h. Mary's class was to underscore the proper nouns in a group of sentences and give common nouns that might be used in their place. One sentence brought a variety of answers. The proper noun was Solomon and that was easy enough to pick out, but not everyone recognized what it spelled^— some took it for Salmon and wrote "fish" for the common noun; other thought it might be Salami and wrote "meat;" and still another thought it was Solemn and answered "high mass."
