ERBE'S "BIG WIND" Indianola Tribune — Press reports indicate the sensational "trbe Probe", of tne state liquor control commission is now coiTipleted. Ana, as nugnT be expected, it ended m just about as climatic,a slump as did his nursing home' fiasco and? oo$cehe literature drive. No one has been .removed from office.

Let there- be no doubt about it: the Cpld War is here to stay. But that might not be the worst' thing to happen to a world that can't seem to rid itself of turrnpil and unrest. The alternative . .appears to' be a Hot War and 'we would deceive ourselves if we believe we are not on the brink of one. ' ' »-•.,* .* .-.••:,'..•' All the, details of what took place . between- 'President, • Kenr nedy and Premier Khrushchev :ih Vienna have not been revealed. And w^hen they- are-^-if ,4hey are — the story will not be 'pleasa'njjj, Unquestionably, the two Mr. K's drew the line on West Berlin. The Russian K demanded that the Berlin question be set;-; tied, which was .his way of sayr ing the United States should pull out its forces and let the entire city come under Communist control. The American K made if quite clear this country will not go back on its word to the people of West Berlin and throw them to the wolves. ' '» * • So it's plain to see a challenge has been made and it has been accepted. Of course, this is not wholly a new development as far as West Berlin is concerned. • The Russians have wanted this little piece of free real estate since the Cold War began. But now there is a difference. In the past the Russians were content to thrust and parry ana then abandon the whole thing when it got too touchy. However, Mr. Krushchev 1 back is to the wall because of trouble at home and abroad. He could get on the hook by grabbing West Berlin. • » • There isn't a question in the world of our right to be in West Berlin. We won Berlin just as the Russians won Berlin — by fighting and whipping the Nazis. By agreement after the German surrender in 1945 the city was occupied by the United States, Russia, France and England. So we are there legally and with the full wishes of the people of West Berlin. • » * Khrushchev, we feel sure, is awar,e that the United States intends to remain firm. He knows we are ready to risk war if an attempt is made to wrest the free city from our control, bu, his memory is not short for he remembers how Stalingrad was reduced to rubble. He is alert to the fact that his country can bv destroyed jf Indeed he tries tq destroy ours. • * * , Khrushchev' chilling speech tp the people' of Russia last weel$ makes it all too clear that the next six months will be critical ones for us and for the world. He said the Berlin question must be resolved by Dec. 31. phviously, then, he has committed himself \Q a position from which it is not fjasy to withdraw- TWs P0 se « a sjtuajtion wtflv w{>ich we havf not previvu&Jy had to contend. « * « A 4>9*ilSV SM »>»y »H powef only as long as he is powerful, 4fi wiife a pwppi when g String' .pujled |o.mgp.arj Ijas t9 obey, ow, Khrushchev is finding a loose string here and there when ' dertrantts; Soviet., djreams of conquering the ?•' Middle • Bast have failed.; Relations, ;Wlth his old( •friend; 1 .'; Egjpt!a tiipfator Nasser, are' : ,strainedi to th^e breaking point.

These are not the kind of conditions that make for a good night of sleep. *• * • * - . • In the next six. months we can expect some form pf harassment at the.hands .'of- 'East German Communists.; Alreadyv there, is a hint that planes which must fly. over East'- Germany., to get to West Berlin, will be subjected,;^ Communist pressures; How 'extensive these pressures will be remains to be seen.. . Communist -leaders said the other day the West would have to negotiate with East Germany about flights, across-its territory. Their reasons were rather shallow but it shows any excuse, no matter how poor, is good enough. For example, they say the people of Berlin are "disturbed" by the noise of the planes and also they are afraid of planes falling on their heads. * * * The Reds can also be expected to crack down on refugees fleeing into West Berlin from Communist East Germany. They arc arriving now at the rate of about 4,000 a week. This certainly doesn't speak well for the Communist, way of life since the number going the other way is a mere trickle. In all the trouble spots of the world it would be well for all of us to keep oui' eyes on Berlin. For the time being this is where peace hangs in the balance. found In the barnyard of the .Louis Bode farm in Union township, last .week. The strange object was an egg that looked like a goose egg—but, on' second thought, couldn't hnve been, as there were no geese on the place. It was eight inches in circumference and five inches arqunti th middle. It was cracked open and inside it conbalnd a full-sized hen's egg and an inher shell, and in the space between the inner and outer shell was egg white. It was assumed that a white rock hen produced the oddity as there were' no other breeds on the farm, We'll bet that hbn either breathed easier—or died, after the egg was delivered.

A total of 26 newspapermen. their wives and families attended a meeting of the North Iowa Press Association held at'- Ban- croft'Monday evening. Editor and Mrs. Harold Clark of Bancroft rnade the arrangements, which included a fine dinner. After dinner, the men toured the Bancroft Register plant and settled down to a good game of huckle-de. btjck. While all this was going on, the women enjoyed playing cards in the Clark home. (We'll be the women didn't get ink all over them, at least.) * * * Three of the four second division clubs in the Kossuth > County Baseball League pulled ; upsets Sunday over first division ^teams—but league-leading Bancroft kept on the right track with Jan overwhelming 22-2' Victory over Buffalo Center.

Dear Dan: I'm a 17-yeaf-old girl and have been going'around with a boy of 1.9 for more than a year. My problem Is'nM about my boy friend but about his parents. I all ways thought thtey approved of me because I used to be invited to their home many times and always received a warm reception. Lately, however, they have been so inexcusably rude inward me that I feel like two conlU. Npw when Johnny brings me Over to his house, his parents mutter two or three words to me and continue on v.'lth what they were doing 1 before I dame in, completely ignoring me. How can I find out what I've done to make them act the way they are toward me? Johnny says it can't be very apparent because he hasTiM; noticed anything. Please help me.' — Very Unhappy. Dear Very Unhappyi If yoiir boy friend is'19 and you've been going steady for more than a year, the trouble isn't what you've done but the simple fact the parents now realize their son iM serious about you, you're serious about him tend one of these days they believe there may be wedding befflts. they're going through a period where they resent you because they feel "you're not good enough" for 'their Johnny.

"•';"''.'.. * . .* * , Dear Dan: Am I wrong? A new custom has reared its head fn our community in connection with 'the final wind up of eighth grade graduation. After the ceremonies, the parents take a, but? or their cars and .take the-eighth grade graduates to an out of town roadhouSe where ithey are fed and can dance and come home.ojt a:l&ite-hour. The cost of this 'entertainment is divided by the parents which) in many instances, can't be afforded but with which they are obligated ito pay. Also, some of .the children feel lefit oult because .they. canH afford the $7 or $8 it takes or being denied to go by their parents who believe it Isn't suitable entertainmemt.for children of that age. Those paren/ts are in the minority but I agree .with them. 1 believe.this type of outing is out of line and unsuitable for children, of eighth grade age. Wouldn't it be much nicer after the exercises to have. pvinch and cookies in the gym, let the boys and girls dance, visit pr play games?
