r« A \ AREA HAS filffl THAN IN STORM' Early Tuesrlay a shrimp boat in the Gulf of Campeche, where hurricanes are oftfh born, radioed the warning that a storm was forming east of Tampico. It was traveling very slowly, but was gaining direction and velocity. Hurricane Audrey, as it was name,l i? the first of the season. At noon Tuesday, it was too early to know whether it would head toward land, much less where it would be likely to hit. So every coastal community from Brownsville to Miami was alerted. It has been nearly eight years since strong winds swept Brazoria County. In these years many things have been done lo increase Ihe protection of the prople of the coast from the severity of hurricane damage, and this is particularly true of Brazospor'. When the relatively mild storm struck the area in 1349, Dow's hurricane warning instruments received their first test, and proved effective. Since then the equipment has been improved, and though the findings are available only to the U. S. Weather Bureau, the equipment serves not only as a warning that would allow persons to get out of the storm's way, but would prevent, the economic loss of R PROTECTION S UlSf VISIT their doing so prematurely. Since then, also, completion of the storm protection levee has walled off most of Brazosport from the Gulf tidewaters that hurricanes once rolled over the lowland communities. Also, the Texas Highway Department and Commissioners Court have added to the protection through roads that permit more and faster movement of traffic. And along with warning and preventive facilities. Brar.nria County in still more recent years has been developing a team composed of several specialized but highly efficient rescue and rehabilitation groups. \Vhen the \ county was struck by floodwaters from another direction earlier this month, citizens got a look at the great value of such resourceful organizations as the Braznsport Boat C'ub. the National Guard armored unit, the Civil Air Patrol squadron, and the Red Cross and its disaster committee. Though men may never cmnpetely protect themselves and their property from these storms, each time t'ne.v strike the blow is .softer. It is indic- alative of man's adaptability and self- reliance, and someday the fear of these storms may he lost as knowledge and facilities advance. Paul Harvey News ...

He sees that it goes in an orderly way and according 10 the rules—in selecting the jury, presenting evidence, hearing thp lawyers' arguments, instructing the jury, and bringing in the verdict. Before the trial starts, the .iiidan sees that the questions put to prospective iurors are proper. He excuses jurors. ;te must see to the proper conduct of the litigants, lawyers, and witnesses. HP must put down public disturbances. Thp judge must see that the lawyers keep within due limits in questioning witnesses, in ?"i':in~ to thp jury, and in their attitudes toward each other pnd the i'.idqf.

HP must decide any requests for r.iiincs by la\\> - crs. For example, after tbe plaintiff's lawyer has made his opening statement or presented his evidence, the defendant's lawyer may move for a judgment of "nonsuit." Ths motion grants the plaintiff's facts hut denies their cogency a« a fatter of law. If granted, the motion will riot allow the plaintiff 10 recover judgment. A riireclcd verdict also ends the casn before the jury can decide it. It is a decision by the cour! on a question of law. Either plaintiff or defendant may •concede the fuels • but deny, as a matter of Inw," their oower to sustain the other party's case. A judse may render a "judgment notwithstanding the ver- icl" after the jury has brought in its \vrdkt, when hp should have granted, but mistakenly denied, a directed verdict. The judge'now and then may rule on the law and thereby take the si|it out of the jury's hands. His ruling in no way reflects on the jury, but works to keep down needless litigation. When lu> docs this he usually expresses the sincere thanks of the court for the time of the jury '.i standing ready to do its work.

It, uPtms Increasinfily likely that it spod*l pnrlUm*nt»ry election, or* yp.Sr ahead of Srhedtile, will' be necessary to end the tangle. It ,«eoms likely also that sooner or Inter * showdown will be necessary on the constitutions! powers of President Giovanni Gronchi. Gronchi's insistent-* on try- ins to play the part of a "strong man" in politics Instead of act ing as a fiuurrhead, as he is supposed to do, has played a hi? part in the political confusion. Socialist! D».i«r< Him Premier Antonio Spgni resigned oh May fi after the tiny Republican Party anrl then the larger milt win? Socialist Party descried his Christian D»m- oTais and thus broke up the go v <M'nmenl coalition. Adone Zolt. another Christian Democrat, formed a cabinet on May 20. Zoli confine.-i his cabinet 1o Christian DomocrHts, hoping to run the government will the support of other moderate parties. 7.oli managed to get » vote of conr.dence in the. chamber of Deputies for his cabinet. But th*r* was a miscount of votej. When the count was checked, it developed that he got his majority only because the. e.x- tr*m<> right wing "Nco-Fas- e.ists" voted for him. ?,oli refused to accept a mandate which depended on ex- t'ftmist support. He resigned on June 10. n«/u«»i lUilgrution Presient Gronchi called in m«n after man In a vain Attempt to get a successor. Finally, Gronchi announced last Saturday that he refused to accept Zoli's resignation and told him to carry on. Zoli went belore the Chamber of. Deputies today to make a new start. It was'forecast th«t the chamber would l«t him remain in office for a while at least. But his Christian Democrats hold only 2fiO seals in the 500- seat chamber. Thus he is at the mercy of oilier parties. The whole tangle stems really from the multi-parlf political system which has weakened f number of European countries /or years and which mads possible the rise of Benito Mussolini in Italy and Adolf Hitler in Germany. Some Italian political leader* aie talking now of the possibility of forming two strong parties by merging, various groups. But U appeari to b« merely talk. Inside Washington ... STASSEN LIKELY NEXT TO LEAVE HIGH POST WASHINGTON _ Harold E. Sir... =en. President Eisenhower's spr-c'al assistant on disarmament problems, may be the next top-level official to leave the administration. The free-wheelinn Stassen irritated Secretary of State John Foster Dulles bv by-passing United Stales Allies and conducting bilateral talks with the Soviets at the London tiis- armftment conference. DiKles was sai dio have had Mr. Eisenhower's permission to give Stasr-en a tongue-lashing with no-words-barrcd. Though he returned to London to continue Die arms limitations talks. Stassen is believed to have been put on notice that his days on the Eisenhower team are numbered. Numerous powerful Repub- lilans have been gunning for the onetime Minnesota governor ever since the collapse of bis attempt to "ditch" Vice President Richard M. Nixon from the 1956 GOP ticket. 1 Some of Stassen's close friends expect him to re-establish residence in Pensylvania, where, he was a university president, and seik either » seat in the United States Senate or (he governorship. • BED CHINA IN UN?-—United States officials fear Great Britain's decision to relax trade restrictions on Red China may be the forerunner of a nev effort to get the Peiping regime admitted to the United Nations. Some of our allies which recognize the Communist government have made no secret of their desire to see the Chinese P-eds seated in the world organ- i/.ation. However, the United Slates shows no intention of backing down or changing its position. American prisoners Hill held in Communist jails are one of the prime examples of Chinese CommuiiiSl disregard for the rules of international decency, official Washington feels. When and if thes* United States citi- T.onn are released, the United States may be willing to reconsider the UN seating issue. • KHRUSHCHEV CONTHO- VEHSY— Washington i« hotly debating Communist Parly Boss Nlkita Khrushchev's appearance recently on a nationwide television hookup in tht Uniied States. The Pros say: it i« all part of freedom of th« prcs'. The Cons reply: Com- mun'sm got a million dollar« worth of free publicity. • IKE HEADY TO FIGHT— A good indication that President Eisenhower is ready to do battle for his legislative program came in the wake of th« stoin,ach upset which hit him recently. L?ss than 24 hours after he recovered from the ailment, the President insisted on going ahead with the first of his breakfasts for Republican House members—so he could make a personal plea for his embattled program. He might have easily postponed the breakfast, but refused to entertain tbe suggestion, even though the rest of hit work schedule was curtailed. Whether this "across-the- coffee-cup" approach will pay off is still uncertain, but there is no doubt Ike is waging an all-out personal fight for hii legislative requests.
