M Upper D« Main* Thursday, qeteber 19, 1961 HELPING THE ENEMY? • '•'.' , ' ••* •' J * r .Discovery that the U.S. had sold jei fighters to Yugoslavia "to Help that stay free of Moscow's domination"Ms just ; another puzzle in fo'ddy's mixed'up V/dfld ptiwer; plays. If is hard for most of us to understand the reasoning involved, but It could be correct, Yugoslavia Is just another .Communist nation, but of a different breed — seemingly —'' than Russia. Yet we cannot help but wonder if selling such planes, even though classified as not the best or latest in jet fighters, Is anything but a mistake. The biggest surprise, however, is to find 'out that this all began last year, that Yugoslavia paid cash far the planes, and that they have men being trained to fly and service them in this Country — and it all happened without the people knowing anything about it until righ'f now. • ( The State Department seems to have had the main finger in the pie of negotiation on the deal which began while Ike was stilt president. NVell, Yugoslavia, at $10,000 a plane, got quite a bargain. ,• But It does seem as, though some of our top echelon transactions are taking place in a pretty semi-secret atmosphere.

The gen; eral had been prevlouly cautioned about some of his actions and statements, including the labeling of former President Truman as "definitely pink."

"We think Gordon Chalmers, ISU director of athletics, has pulled some dumb stunts, public relations wise, during his short tenure as director of athletics at Iowa State and this later one is about as bad a fumble as one could make.

The story never, in any newspaper man's mind, deserved two banners and column after column of front page space. And we doubt very much if it would have received that attention at the Register if KRNT had been owned, we will say, by WHO-TV. "We happen to know that President Hilton is as anxious to arrange an Iowa-Iowa State football game as any one in the state. He wants to achieve it first by producing a team that can play Iowa on even terms and then to have relations between the two schools such that the game can be played without a riot. "It looks as if they have accomplished the first objective already. But if Director Chalmers doesn't learn to keep still they never will achieve the second objective. This is the third of fourth serious blunder he has made and each one has moved the starting date of that game farther away. The Mike Cox incident and now the closed circuit TV incident have so infuriated some Iowa fans that it would take a regiment' of police to maintain order, and particularly if Iowa State should happen to clobber Iowa like they did the last time the two met".
