- EDITORIAL The Power Hunters Don't be deceived. The government i>s mote interested in developing liydrn-elect ric power dams than controliing floods. Tlie pinks still want control of the power business and imagine that they are more ef- .ficient than private companies. That's because of false bookkeeping, which allows nothing for use of money and makes no allowance for taxes that would be collected from private comjianies but lost to goveraiment operation. The American people are pi-etty well aware of the power hoax and know" what hai> pens when government .spendthrifts get in the saddle and try to run business, but thi' popular sales scheme is to present government power projects under the guise of fk)od control In practically all instances, private IK)Wer companies or combinations of them have offered to build dams suitable for hydro-electric power at no cost to the taxpayers, to pay taxes on them and to sell the power as cheaply as they would if they had to purchase energy back from the government. But amiy engineers like to keep their fingers in the pie and who else in the whole wide world can ••^jX'nd as nnich money foolishly and iinviHoly as the I'nited States army ? Consoi'valionists are clamoring to have floods prevented and halted in the upi>er reaches of the nation's streams but the army engineers want to build huge, expensive dams on tiie lower reaches—and make them into hydroelectric projects, all to becomo useless in relatively few years from siJta- tion, inundating i)ennanently more ",oiHi land than the floods ever cover at liigb stage. Power-mad iunbitions seem to be at the root of all the hair-brained schemes which travel under the false fi-ont of flood conti-ol. Ardrey Shuts Out City, 4 to Q A house that costs $10,0{)0 is reiiresented by $3,000 in concealed taxes. The jokers like to imply that only the filthy rich ]wy taxes. In weighing the pros and cons of how to enlarge the public school .system's jilants the fact should not be lost sight of that I)layground area for the central school. There is a rather large area but it is devoted to athletics, and there is a gulf of dif- fei'ence between a "playground" and an "athletic" feild. The Nation Today Taft^ Ike Campaign Differences By .lAMK.S MAKLOW Washington, (JP> —.Senator Taft has done .-ill the things you could expect u professional politician to do. Gen;;ral Elsenliowcr, tiic political amateur, has been going by his own rules. Toft breezed into tiie presidential race with coattails flying. He wanted the presidency. Ho announced for it last Oct. 17. Ho .started to work for it right away, spopchmaking, lining up support, .surrounding himself with old-time politicians. At that time the insiders probably knew wher.; Eisenhower stood but the public didn't even know whether he was republican or democrat. He didn't say openly he was a republican until Jan. 7. At the .same time he said he'd accept a "clear- ieiit call to duty"—meaning the presidency—but insisted he wouldn't quit hi.-* job in Europe to run foi it. When he later resigned, he said his job in Europ.> was done. ' 1 MEANWIIILK, knowing ^niat time means in lining up dclegatesrfor the convention, Eisenhowcr•^ campaign manitgcr, Senator Henry Cabot Lodge of Massachusettr, started the drive for him last November. ^ The high-speed speechmaking Taft ha.s been doing since la-st October is only a steppcd-up version of what he's been doing for years. His face, his voice and his attitudes have long been known, Vou like.'him or you don't, you agree or you don't. Not sp with Eisenhower. Except tor some speeches he made <vhil2 he was president of Columbia un- Ivcl^slty, Elsenhower's ideas on doings at hom.> were unknown to moat people. He didn't talk on donnQstl.Q,stuff while in uniform. AJLL OF TIIKSE things, in the end, may win him the Republican nmoination and the presidency, and maybe they won't. Now that he's cack he's workini; hard for the nomination although six months ago he said ho wouldn't. When he held bis first news conference at Abilene, Kans., two weeks ago some of his adviser? were jittery until it was over, then they said the- felt he did fine. The conference came one day after his first political speech, which wasn't unanimously considered fine around the country. Eisenhower had help on that one. Maybe he felt he couldn'i do worse if he had no help at Jill. At any rate in his Detroit speech Saturday h-; took pains! to say he had torn up all the things that had been written for him to say and would just fro on his own. Ho may do all right or break his neck, if he keeps on going on his own. * * 5 milLE EISENHOWER is surrounded by plenty of political pros—like Lodge, Sen. James Duff of Pennsylvania, Sen. Frank Carlson of Kansas, and state governors who like h;m—he has some prominent amateur help, too. Paul Hoffman, one of his advisers, is no pro. He'« been a businessman who was chairman of the committee for economic development, president of the Studebaker corporation, boss of the Marshall plan, and head of the Ford foundation from which he's on leave of absence to help the general. Hoffman is chairman of the advisory committee for Citizens for Eisenhower. Comblatiie th» Vtndlcaitor and KepubUcao.

Armed Bandits Hold Up Grocery Store Low Moor, la., June 20, UP\ — Two armed bandits held up a gro- cofy store here late last night as the proprietors, Mr, and Mrs. Frank Thomp.son, were counting the day's receipts. One of the bandits drew a gun and forced the Thompsons to hand over the money. The men fled in a car with out-of-state license plates. The I exact amount of the loot haa.not been determined, but thy TH^mpsons estimated it at mor? than 100 dollars. Low Moor \a 10 rallcs west of Clinton.

Si -loctiona wore made by a committee of three college basoball coaches assisted by recommonda- tion.s from other coaches.

Atkinson Gets Win for Omaha By the Associated Press Pueblo opened its lead to V,s games in the Western league last night by taking a pair from last place Lincoln, 2-0. Second-place Colorado Spvings also won, beating Sioux City 2-1 in 10 innings. Denver stayed close behind, 2',i games out, by taking Its second straight from Des Moines, 4-2. And Omaha outscorcd Wichita 11-10. Omaha scored three runs in the last of the ninth in gliding past Wichita. Dick Atkinson, who wos signed off the Univoislty of Missouri campus two days ago, got credit for the victory. Leponnaires Get Only Flip Hits By nO\T LUITIDLY Milt Ardrey, late of Colorado State Teachers' college and newest addition to the Red Sox mound staff, made his start in an Elsth- ervillo uniform an auspicious one Right-luindor Milt had the Mason City Li 'Kionnaires popping up with satisfying regularity last night as Uv fhut out the opposition club on five hits and only once permitted the Li ^gionnaires to threaten to score. Ardro\- was in complete control all the way, pitching five hitless innings and only once allowing Ma.son City to get two hits in one frame, the seventh. He struck out five, gave up three walks and hit one batsman. Unused to pitching In the rarified atmosphere of the Rockies. Ardrey said he had trouble witli his curve ball in the heavy air of north Iowa. It breaks so much more sharply here, he explained, that ho had a little difficulty allowing for the sharper bro.ik. V ... 'i' ARDREY FORCED the Legion nairos to fly out 16 times during the ball game, 10 on popups to tha infield. Only one of the five Mason City hits was a sharp one, a double by Dick Christolph. The Red Sox flinger got some fine support from Mike Boettcher, Gordic Wlnkel and Bart Bartkowski In the early frames. Boettcucr scooped up two grounds balls after long runs which he turned into out.<» with the assistance of Bartkowski who dug up a couple of low throws. Winkel snared a sizzling: liner off the bat of Dick Morgan that choked off a potential Mason City run. Mason City got some g-ood pitching out fo little, 17-ycar-oId Albie Pearson, the California high school boy. The junior edition of Bobby Shantz, standing and weighing no more than 130 pounds, rung up 10 strikeouts with his sharp curve, whiffing every Red Sox player but Bill Duddlng. He allowed 10 htijs but scattered them well and only once did ho get into trouble because of lack of control, * * * TIIE SOX JUMPED away fast scoring a run on tlic first two pitches. Jack Kaley hit the flrat pitch offered him for a single aad Boettcher rifled the next tail thrown into the field for a two bagger, scoring Kaley. The Sox got two more runs In the third. Kaley opened the inning with a deep-hit three bagger and Freeman singled hiih home. Freeman took second on a passed ball and scored on Winkel's three base blow. The scoring ended for"" the eve-' ning when the locals got one run' in the fourth. Jim Woltz walked- to open the stanza and Rollie Barton sacrificed him to second. Ardrey struck out but Kaloy got on base when hit by a pitched ball, Successive walks to Bottcher and Freeman forced Woltz across for a tally. * * * ^ HIASON CTTY'S only scriou^ threat' came in the seventh when Tom Stenger singled through short, Leo Schlueter fanned and Pearson bloopcd a one-baser out of reach of everyone in short left field. A wild pitch put both runners in scoring position but an alert Ardrey and a sleeping Stenger helped get the Sox off the hook. Don Waldron was at the plate when he decided to step out of the batter's box as Ardrey was ready to deliver a pitch. Ardrey hold up, stepped off the rubber then noticed Stenger slowly walking back towards third base after taking a lead when It appeared Ardrey was going to pitch to Waldron. * « -« ARDREY' TOSSED the ball to Winkel who tagged out Stenger. The Legionnaires protested the decision, first on the grounds that time wa.s out but Plote Umpire Lansing said he hadn't called time and then they tried to convince thn umpires that Ardrey had balked. Base Umpire Wlttkopf aald Ardrey had halted his motion to the plate, had stepped off the rubber and was not in balk position. After playj was i^sumod Waldron fanned on a three-two pitch and the Sox were out of^ trouble. Don Hall win pitch for the So.s tonight In their game with Carroll, the winner of which will be in frist place in the Iowa Stale league. He probably will be opposed by either Dennla Rlnaldl or Bob Getting.

The Esthervillc Junior Legion team plays at Terrll Sunday afternoon for Its next diamond ap poarance. Junior Legjion Team Loses To Riiiicsted The EsthcrvlUe Junior Legion nine dropped its lirst game of the season to the Ringsted Junior Legion lads. 13 to 3. last night at Jaycee field. Inexperience and inability to solve the offerings of O'Neill, Ringsted pitcher, brought defeat to the locals but those in chargo of the program were not disheartened by the results. They feel the youngsters learned a lot in their first competitive game, the first ever for most of the team members. Mistakes hurt but more experience in competition will find fewer of these being committed. * « « BINCSTED GOT TWO runs in the opening inning and Esthervillc came back with one. The home club got its other two counters in the third. Ringsted added a single fourth, six in the fifth and finished off with one in the seventh. Both pitchers O'Nell for Ringsted and Dick Pieper for Eathervillc. blazed the ball past the batters with regularity. O'Neill got 11 strikeouts In the seven-inning contest and Pieper 10. « « « ESTHERVILLE'S lineup in addition to Pieper on the mound included Jim Smith and Ridout, catchers; Prank Smith and Amundsen, first base; Gemmlll, second base; Origer, third base; Lamack and Sunde, shortstops; Morlt:^, left field; Christensen, center field; Lyman and Robinson, right field. Rlngsted's lineup had O'Neill and Swartz as the battery, Gaarde, first base; Schultz, second base; Schnittger, short stop; Glassnap third base; Buchan and Verbrugge, left field; Moore, center field; and Peterson and Christensen, right field.

VS. WALLINGFORD 2:30 p. m. Sunday June 22 Wallingford Ball Club oop-Leading arroll Is Here Tonight The league-ieadinK Carroll Merchants arc in town tonight. Jam- packed with youth and hustle, the Merchants are managed again this season by Tom Shcchan, the belting catcher who plays every game as though the pennant hinged on its outcome. Mostly new faces grace the Merchant lineup this season but back ft^m last year's club Is Sammy Esposito, the league's leading base robber last year. Sammy is as fast as ever and is pounding the ball at merry clip to date. He finislied his sophomore year at Indiana where he played shortstop for the Hooslers this spring and played a lot of basketball for them winter. m * w THE MERCILINT pitching staff to date (they expect to sign a liurl- or from a class A pro league soon) averages about 20 years of age. The four chuckers are Dennis Rinaldi and Wayne Paige, returnees from last year. Bob Getting and Eddie French. Rinaldi pitched this spring for Western Reserve university. Paige Is from Dike and began play In the league when just out of Dike high. Getting finished his sophomore year at S. U. 1, and appeared in a few games for the Hawkoyes this spring. He hails from Sanborn. French is a youngster from Illinois. Teaming up with Esposito on the Infield are Clayton Johnson, the veteran ot Western league baseball who plays second base, hits well and is also a speed-demon on the bases; Jim Decker, 17-year-old brother of Bobby who operates at third base; and Bill Hayes from Western Michigan at first base, s;: a: :;i OPERATING IN the outfield are John Rennickc, who played pro ball with the Des Moines Bruins and is a former Drake diamond and cage star; Sam Bedroslan, an Armenian lad from DeKalb, 111., State Teachers who belted out four hits in five appearances against the Sox Tuesday night and Bob Taylor from Auburn. Bill Evans, veteran Carroll performer, will join the Merchants next week and take his place In the outfield. It was Paige who beat the Red Sox Tuesday night and he might be the boy to go against the locals tonight although it is more likely that Rinaldi will be the Carroll starter. Don Hall or Lou Rosin will draw the hurling assignment for the Sox. Hall pitched Monday night against the Popcorn Kernels and Rosin hurled in relief Tuesday night after working Sunday night's game at Spencer.
