"Guess Who" Drew Pearson Reports editorials Page 4 Garden City Tel<>grnin Monday, October 22,1962 A Source of Pride" TT WAS WITH mixed feelings that this newspaper published a small item in its Saturday edition concerning a traffic charge against a local policeman. There was some regret, since we know of the thousands of miles this policeman has driven on local streets without any such infractions. Also, there are some readers who will grasp for such incidents as basis for criticism of our police department. But the filing of the charge against the policeman gives us an opportunity to commend our police department. It has demonstrated to the public that its members are not above reproach, and are citizens who are responsible to obey the laws just as you and I. This community can be proud that those who enforce our laws do'not put themselves above the law. We also can take pride in the impressive safety record of our police department, which logs difficult miles in heavy traffic and amidst the dangers of crowded streets. It's often said that the unusual makes the news. So when a police car is involved in an accident it's news, just as when an ambulance, fire truck or other emergency vehicle is a crash victim. We will continue to publish news of such events, but we do so with the pride that such accidents are rare and the drivers should be commended for their fine records rather than castigated for their few mishaps. Letter to rhe Editor She Also Was Her Rights The incident reported on the front page of the October 9 issue of the Telegram concerning the sus- pen-qon of the high school girl, Judy Rae Bushong, a member of a minority group who believe it is immodest for a girl to appear in public in shorts, is interesting because of its far reaching ramifications. The Springfield Township High School has threatened permanent expulsion if she does not bow to its regulation, according to the article. Thus will be denied her right to an education in her own public- school. Our President, using some 23,000 U.S. troops has just recently forced "Ole Miss" to change its regulations and enroll a member of a minority group, thus protecting his right to an education in spite of the regulations of the school. Will he go to the same length if necessary to defend Miss Bushong's rights? As head of the executive branch of our government it is 1m duty to do so. I trust he will. Whatever he does will certainly manifest his sincerely concerning the civil rights issue. — MARVIN PENICK, Laid n. Letter to the Editor Praise for Garden City I would like to take this opportunity to thank the people of Garden City for a most enjoyable weekend spent October 6 and 7 at the sports car races s[K»n- sored by the Shrine Club. I know I speak for everyone that attended the races, as I have heard nothing but praise for the people of Garden City, the ShrinersVid the many others that had part in the event. As one person put it — "if the art of hospitality has been lost in the rest of the world, it is because il has all come to Garden City". And we of the Wichita Region of Sports Carl'ltib of America wholeheartedly agree with this statement. We will certainly be looking forward to next year. — LARKY CHRISTIE, .Regional Executive, Wichita Region. Hal Boyle Says; Happy Man Best Judge NEW YORK (AP) - Things a columnist might never know if he didn't open his mail: Those who are happy themselves, psychologists have found, are best at judging correctly the qualities of others. Th<? unhappy man tends to see his own faults in the other fellow. Women, generally, are also better than men at sizing up other people. Exception: Love blinds them to what's wrong in their own husbands. Many doctors now agree that till- first signs of an approaching illness often show up in a dream, long before the actual physical symptoms appear. An old ruling in Washington, D.C., made it illegal for a man to marry either his grandmother or his mother-in-law : . Our quotable notables: "The more a man knows, and the farther he travels, the more likely he is to marry a country girl"— George Bernard Shaw. During the 18'ch century homes of the European wealthy often had two tubs in a bathroom—one for washing with soap, the other for rinsing it off. Fewer than 10 per cent of those to keep it off. The simplest way who diet to lose weight manage to keep your weight constant is to cut down the amount of food you eat one per cent each year after the age of 25. Can you name the only man who signed these four crucial documents in early American history —the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution, treaty of alliance with France and treaty of peace with England? He was Benjamin Franklin. The Joural of the American Medical Association notes: "Scientists now tell us there are 1,600 things a married man worry about; a bachelor has only 1.100 things to worry about." Paper money was invented by the Chinese, but the •. rlrl's most highly valued notes are those of SHK) 100 denomination issi'ed by the U.S. Treasury and bearing the portrait of President Woodrow Wilson. There is poetry in words. Our word muscle comes from the Latin term "musculus," caning "little mouse," for the ancients truly observed our muscles move like little mice beneath the rampart of our skin. A whale can dive a milt beneath the surface. A dog's nose- print is as individual as one of your fingerprints. Ants will eat prartically anythin" neople will. It was Oscar Wilde who observed: "We live in an age when unnecessarv things are our only necessities." Department Store Sales Show Decrease KANSAS CITY (AP)—Sales at department stores in the 10th Federal Reserve District dropped 4 per cent last week as compared with the corresponding week of 1961. All reporting Missouri and Kansas communities showed declines except metropolitan Kansas City. Sales for the four weeks ending Oct. 13 were up 1 per cent and sales for the year to date showed an increase of 2 per cent. JFK Boots Senator Hill OECATUR, ALA. - While President Kennedy has been beating the bushes to elect Democratic Senators and Congressmen, he took an indirect sidc-w a 11 o p against one of his most faithful followers in the Senate, Lister Hill of Alabama. This, together with the Mississippi imbroglio, could knock Hill out of the Senate and elect a Republican Senator from Alabama for the first time in 100 years. The wallop, easily avoidable was K e n n c d y's selection of George D. Woods of the First Boston Corporation to be head of the World Bank. It so happens that Lister Hill did more than any other Senator except Estcs Kefauver of Tennessee to unearth the backstage machinations of George Woods and the First Boston Corporation in the Dixon- Yates conspiracy. Hill and Kefauver won this battle — against terrific odds — and forced the Eisenhower Administration to cancel the Dixon-Yates contract after a conflict of interest was unearthed involving the First Boston Corporation. Despite that, President Kennedy last week selected the head of the same company involved in the Dixon-Yates scandal to be head of the World Bank. And he did this at a time when Lister Hill, who has spent his life fighting "the big mules," faces the toughest battle of his career from a Republican oilman, James Martin, supported by the big mules, the big racists, and the big oil tycoons of Texas. Senator Hill has been responsible for the construction of more hospitals around the USA than a,iy other American in history, He has also been so loyal to Ken- rcdv that he even voted for Charlie Meriwether, pal of the grand dragon of the Ku Klux Klan, when JFK appointed him to the export-import bank. In contrast, here is the background of George Woods, 'whose company was once exposed by Hill and Kefauver. 1. Eugene Black, retiring head of the World Bank, who has been playing footsie with Woods for some time, once sent Woods ..on a tour of India. On -the tour, Woods recommended that the Kaiser Corporation get a big contract to remodel the Tata Steel Works with Uncle Sam pay- infi most of the bill. Significantly Woods, who recommended Kaiser, is Kaiser's banker. Thus Woods, temporarily employed by Uncle Sam, gave Kaiser a big contract largely paid for by Uncln Sam. 2. The World Bank has sheltered another with a conflict of interest. When things got too hot inside the budget bureau for Adolph e Wenzell, the first Boston Man who was planted inside the budget bureau to put across Dixon-Yates, he had to exit. And the interesting place is where he then found haven: the World Bank. 3. When Secretary of Hie Air Force Harold Talbott proposed taking an aluminum press ""contract away from Kaiser Aluminum at Halethorpe, Md., and giving it to Harvey Aluminum because Harvey had contributed heavily to Eisenhower, George Woods again went into action. As the banker for Kaiser Aluminum, Woods came to Washington, talked to his good friend, Secretary of the Treasury Humphrey. Humphrey quietly reversed the Secretary of the Air Force. Kaiser Aluminum kept its contract. 4. The First Boston Corporation in 1946 merged with the Old Andrew Mellon interests in Pittsburgh, taking ovej- the Mellon Securities Corporation. Dick Mellon and his sister, Mrs. Alan Scaife, then became important stockholders of First Boston, with 112,500 shares of class A stock and 46,788 shares of $100 cumulative preferred stock. Mellon and Mrs. Scaife were among the biggest contributors to the Republican Party in the campaign to defeat Kennedy last year. The family put up around $100,000. Now Kennedy rewards the top man of this banking combine with one of the most important jobs in the nation. Note l — Following his brush with the lords of the steel industry last May, the President has been inviting business moguls to the White House and assuring them he is not anti-business. This is probably behind his selection of Woods. Note 2 — As head of the World Bank, Woods does not require Senate confirmation. When Rep. Frank "all is made for love" Boykin of Mobile, Ala., was indicted by a Federal Grand Jury the other day, it was vindication for a young Alabama preacher, Charles Trimmier, who at one time got kicked in the political seat of the pants by Boykin. Trimmier, then in the Alabama Legislature, had the courage- to challenge a secret scheme to pay a political henchman of Gov. John Patterson $180,000 for alleged damage to a piece of land alongside a federal highway. Though Charles Meriv/ether, Governor Patterson's campaign manager and finance director, claimed there was no evidence of using influence for this exorbitant demand, Trimmier persisted. Finally, he got a grand jury called; also persuaded Rep. John Blatnik, D., Minn., to send* a special investigator to Mobile. Just as the investigator from Washington was striking pay dirt, however, Boykin went over Blatnik's head to the over-all chairman of the house government operations committee, Bill Dawson of Chicaco, and persuaded him to cut the groound out from under the investigation Rep. Blatnik had ordered. Chairman Dawson of Chica'go is a Negro. Rep. Boykin of Alabama had boasted he was elected to Congress with the support of the white citizens councils and the Ku Klux Klan. But they collaborated. Today. Boykin, who represents Mobile in Washington, has been defeated and indicted. Trimmier, the young preacher with the courage to speak out, has been elected to the Mobile City Council. And Charlie Meriwether, the Alabama politician who tried to cover up the whole deal, has been appointed by Kennedy to the Export-Import Bank. EVERY NOW AND THEN our neighbor goes batting around in the attic of his old house and comes down with a magazine or two of by-gone years which he passes on to us to copy out of. * * * LAST WEEK we received Collier's for December 5,1914. In it we read — Julian Street's preview of the upcoming Panama- Pacific Exposition in San Francisco, an article in a series on American cities entitled "Abroad at Home." Grantland Rice's "Picks of Soprts" page. Norman Draper's account of German Sea Raiders. And a notice to readers to watch for the Christmas edition \Vhich would feature Mary Roberts Rinehart's story "The Truce of God" and James Whitcomb Riley's latest poem (" the first he has written in years") called "What Old Santa Overheard." THE COVER story featured The Honorable H. H. Asquith, British Prime Minister and E n g 1 a n d 's Man at the Helm." Drama, a'n editorial comment said, had moved from the scenic to the Ib- d. h. senic to the obsenic. Pictures of the war in Europe were headlined, "From the Western Slaughter Line," and there was some editorial controversy over whether or not it was wise to send money to feed the Belgians. •*- * * THERE WAS THIS to say about the men in their "boozing forties" — "One factor lies on the surface of American life: the increase of sedentary oc- cunations and of drinking therein. Any indoor man who soaks up liquor is likely to die before he is 50 years old. It is a matter of some difficulty to keep him alive and the desirability of it is often rather questionable." * * * AND A 1914 Ann Landers (Ellen Key) squelched squabbles over the relative merits of men and women with: "Self-indulgence, luxury, gossip and scandal are neither womanly nor manly. They spring 1 in either sex from a low degree of culture."
