editorials "Some Of You Have Perhaps — Hrmph —• Heard Of These Tribes" Education or Catastrophe W E NATURALLY THINK of the'jet age of international air travel in its most obvious manifestations — standards of speed, comfort and reliability which make it possible for us to go almost anywhere in the world in a matter of hours. But there is more, much more, to it than just this. And the possible significance has been admirably summarized by Juan Trippe of Pan American World Airways. "Mass travel by air may prove to be move significant to world destiny than the atom bomb. For there can be no atom bomb potentially more powerful than the air tourist, charged with curiosity, enthusiasm and good will, who can roam the four corners of the world, meeting in friendship and understanding the people of other nations and races. "The tourist plane and the bomber for years have been racing each other toward a photo finish. • In my opinion, however, the tourist plane, if allowed to move forward unshackled by political boundaries and economic restrictions, will win this race between education and catastrophe." It would, indeed, be a glorious day when peaceful tourist planes were all that used our airways, and there were no more bombers, rockets, missiles or other aerial weapons in the sky. The same invention which has erased the barrier of distance between all comers of our globe has made it possible to bring mass destruction to the entire world. Man's morality has always had a difficult time keeping up with his inventive skill. But his desire to fly wasn't motivated by his bent to destroy. Perhaps air travel is one of the hopes for our menaced civilization.

GOP Leaders Hit Cuba Handling WASHINGTON (AP) - Three Republican congressional leaders have attacked the Kennedy administration for "tragic irresolution" in handling the Ci foa si nation, declaring it to be the dominant issue in congressional elections. The three are Rep. William E. Miller of New York, the national party chairman, and Sen. Barry Goldwater of Arizona and Rep. Bob Wilson of California, the chairmen of the Senile and House campaign committees. They said in a statement Tuesday: "If we were asked to state the issue (In the Nov. 6 election) In one word that word would be Cuba—symbol of the tragic irresolution of the administration." John M. Bailey, national chairman of the Democrats, shot back a reply, in which he accused the Republicans of "It- ^ of memory" and failure to put forth any alternatives to administration policies. He said communism took over in Cuba in 1958 during the Eisenhower administration and added: "It ill, behooves them now to Garden City Telegram Wednesday, Oct. 17.

Opinions Differ as Student Withdraws WASHINGTON — Much that didn't meet the eye went on during the closing days of the unlamented 87th Congress,, and part of it involved the very serious charge of legislative blackmail made by the senior F^nator from Oregon, Wayne Morse, against his fellow Democrat, Congressman Mike Kirwan of Youngstown, Ohio. Morse made the charge direct to President Kennedy in a private showdown after Kirwan had struck five Oregon Rivers and .Harbors projects out of the appropriations bill following Morse's vote against Kirwan's $10,000,000 fish aquarium. Morse had called Kirwan's ornate fish pond, which will have two giant, three-story oceanar- ium s big enough for jumping porpoises, plus seven smaller two- story tanks, plus a curving live trout stream, plus a tropical rain forest a "fish hotel." "It's a luxury the Capital cannot afford while there is an acute shortage of school rooms here," Morse told the Senate. While he was speaking, Sen. John Carroll, D., Colo., sent word that Kirwan was already threatening to block public works funds for Oregon; and in the joint Senate-House session later, the furious and crotchety Congrjssman from Ohio chopped ,.965,000 of Oregon projects out of the Rivers and Harbors bill. "Morse was the cause of it — and that woman too," the crusty Kirwan bellowed, referring to Rep. Edith Green, D., 0\e. "I'll hold up all Oregon's water projects until Morse learns something about fish." A lot of Congressmen and even some senators — have run for cover before the threats of Czar Kirwan, who as chairman of the House Subcommittee on Appropriations, has meat-axed or ok'd pork-barrel projects according to his whim. But Morse Is a Senator who has never run from battle. He and Sen. Maurine Neuberger, D., Ore., went to see the President. "I intend to make a motion for the expulsion of Kirwan from the Congress on the grounds of corruption," Morse told Kennedy. '*! shall make this motior on the grounds of legislative blackmail. "I have consulted the parliamentarian, and he informs me that in view of Kirwan's attack on my state, I am within the rules in making such a motion." Morse referred to the rules against criticising a fellow member of Congress. "Several Senators came to me Woman's Place Is in The Home—Sometimes ETTIUCK, Va. (AP)—College authorities differ on Hazel Ruth Adams' motives in withdrawing from all-white Patrick Henry College at Martinsville after one day and returning to all-NRgro Virginia State College here. The first school integration in Virginia's soutliside came to a quick end Tuesday when the Negro girl made ne r switch. She had won admission to Pat rick Henry last Friday in an un- contosted court suit. Monday she attended classes there. The'University of Virginia, of which Patrick Henry is a branch, said she withdrew when she found that tho classes she had beon taking at Virginia State were botte? for her intended cour. . of study. But members of V ^, Patrick Henry Advisory BorrJ said Miss Adams never had intended to do more than break the .1 ssroom race barrier there, then leave. The case "was one of comedy, tragic cometly," said the board Chairman, Francis T. West. "Unquestionably she was an unwitting tool of those determined to make race an issue in a communi. ty enterprise." Miss Adams, 17, said nothing. After coming back to J.SOO-student Virginia State quietl; and without advance notice, she stayed in her dormitory ruorn. Newsmen could not reach her. B. F. Dabney, assistan to Virginia State President Dr. Robert P. Daniel, said Miss Adams, who transferred to Patrick Henry in midsiMiiester, discovered she would have too much catching-up to do if she remained there. In the Upper Room Let brotherly love continue.

By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP) - Things a columnist might never know if he didn't open his mail: Nero, the Roman emperor, spent up to $150,000 for rose s alone at one of his famous feasts.

Toothsome rumor: It is said that a now pill to be on the market shortly will make brushing your teeth unnecessary. (You never really know freedom in life until you reach the age where you can mail your teeth to the dentist for his pain-free, semi-annual checkup.) Speaking of dentists, the best known one in history wag probably Zane Grey, who helped make the West meet the East., But when he was an unknown author first trying to peddle his cowboy stories, a publisher told him he had absolutely no talent for writ- »ing popular fiction. Our. girls go places. The U.S. department that knows about such things say s that 55 per cent of the passports it issues go to the ladies, and 28 per cent are housewives.

Personal philanthropy: If you don't give at least 50 presents a year to other people, you're stingier than your average neighbor. What has more keys than a bank? A piano. It looks smooth and simple, but it lias 7,500 parts —more than an automobile. Odd legislation: I hear that tying a giraffe to a street light is illegal in Atlanta, Ga. (Our liberties are gnawed away one by one.) forgotten heroes: Victor Orville credited with inventing the cross- word puzzle, did so to help pass the time while he was a pejiiten- tiary inmate.

Neuiberg- er, and said 'Maurine, don't you dare vote against K i r w a n's aquarium. He'll knife every project for Oregon you ever bring up.' " "Mr. President," added Sen. Neuberger, "Senator after Senator voted for the aquarium bill out of fear." "I shall have to point out, Mr. President," continued Morse, "that Kirwan is the chairman of the Democratic Campaign Committee for the House with the power to allocate campaign funds. And the people of the country know what thac means — political bribery." • The President expressed complete agreement with the t w o Oregon Senators, promised to do everything he could to help and immediately called Kirwan to the White House. Afterward he phoned Morse to say that the Oregon projects would b e put back into the supplemental appropriations bill. "That's not good enough," Mr. President," Morse replied. "That can be knocked out with a single objection." Morse stood firm for inclusion of his Oregon projects in the regular public works bill. Meanwhile he held up a conference report on that bill for a full week, thereby stalling adjournment. Meanwhile a midnight session of Senate leaders rallied to his support. At the conference were Mansfield, Mont., Russell, Ga., Kerr, Okla., Holland, Fla., Democrats and Saltonstall, Mass., Replican. They agreed that the prestige of the Senate was at stake, that the Senate could bow no longer to crusty Clarence Cannon, 83-year- old "dictator" from Missouri, and cantankerous Mike Kirwan, 76- year-old "tyrant" from Ohio in their refusal to let the Senat ini- itiate appropriations. They decided to demand the return of certain key appropriations, among them three for Oregon. Sen. Saltonstall demurred a bit at this. "Just a minute. Lev," argued Morse. "These are not just three Oregon projects. They aro three Massachusetts projects, or three Pennsylvania projects or three New Jersey projects because they represent the refusl of the Senate to bow to legislative blackmail." All finally agreed. Reasonable speaker John McCormaek also agreed. And next day the House reinstated the seven Senate projects which Kirwan and Cannon had kocked out. They included two for Illinois, one for Texas, a barge canal for Florida, and threo for Oregon — the deepening of the Columbia River to a 40-foot channel; the deepening of the Yaquina Bay on ;he Pacific Coast; and the beginning of the Blue River Dam. This was the real reason why the crusty Cann o n m a d e his unprecedented speech blasting Speaker McCormack. And as the Senate was about to adjourn, Sen. Mike Mansfield, the Democratic leader, asked -Morse, in tribute to his victory over Cannon and Kirwan, to preside. As the Senator from Oregon banged the gavel for adjournment, about 30 members of the House stood around the fringe of the Senate to congratulate Morse on his victory over the two congressional despots — Cannon of Missouri and Kirwan of Ohio.
