tdlforial ... HUMAN RESOURCES BIGGEST GAIN FROM JAYCH FISHING CONTESTS For th« remainder of this we«k a fishlnf contest will dominate the »t- mosphert of Bra*osp° r t- II is the * n ' nual Fish-in' Fiesta of the Freeport Junior Charnbfjr of Commerce. The headquarters art ih Freeport, and the Sponsors intend It to be principally for the benefit of Freeport. But that's not where the benefit ends. By their own rules, the Jaycees' have widened the fishing limits to extend from Chocolate Bayou to the San Bernard, which just about describes Brasosport So whover takes the prizes the Jayeew dffer, the real winner is Braioiport. All merchant* operate on the theory that their ware* are of the highest quality, and for the most part sell them- »lv««J. All that's needed is to get the public to enter their, store and see them. TKat'i alto the principle of a chamber of commerce. And a junior chamber. Their community has all it takes. All that's needed i« to have others see their community and they're sold- They'll want to live here, or at leait come here when they want recreation. The Flsh.fl' Ftart* hat had nine previout editions. Detpite a fluctuating membership, with some members growing older and leavng the club, and younger ones taking their places, the Fiesta continues to grow and improve. It is a tremendous undertaking. And there are no losers. The least that the participant can receive is a weekend of enjoyment. A relatively larfe number of luckier ones will receive worthwhile prizes. Merchants are busy. The area gets much publicity and many people see Bracosport for the first time. • • And when it's over, th« Jayctw themselves are the real winners, Thos* who struggled through months of painstaking detail and the hardest kind of work will eventually realize that some of the most valuable lessor* in leadership they Will ever have gotten were learned in this project So the area also gains in improved human resources. The Facts believes that this Fishin' Fiesta is as much a resource to Brazos- part as the sport it popularim, and deserves the support and encouragement of the public. Paul Harvey N«ws... LIGHT ALONE SPREAD FREEDOM By PAUL HARVEY I think this is important. . And before we fight another war "to make the world safe for Democracy," we should memorite this history lesson. Before we spend any more billions to try to buy "collective security," we owe ourselves this backward glance. In 1789 all other nations •were totalitarian . . . except us. Now picture this: In 1789 our little bitty new country of three million people was an island . . . completely surrounded by totalitarian governments. Everywhere else, Kings claimed to rule by divine right and others ruled with military might, but w« . . . alone . . . ruled our- MI>«. What happened? Suddenly the rest of the world, watching our experiment in individual liberty and Kit government, begin io copy uil Statesmen and writers visited the United Slates, returned home with glowing reports, and suddenly the urge for freeom began to n-ove like a pfairie fire across whole continents. The French threw off the yoke of their dissolute Xing and rapacious aristocracy. England Initiated sweeping democratic w'orms Mexlce, South America, Central America fr«fd themselves from Spain. From 1789 until 1818, when the first \f »rld War broke out, democracy was ing around ihe worldl How come? Our new nation had not given the old nations any money. We had net sent forth any paid propagandists. We had beamed no broadcasts beyond our neighbor's borders. We had not gent any "experts" overseas tr, show them how. We did not supply them any guns, but- tei or money. Our new nation did not insist on any "mutual defense" agreements. Yet, though w« ignored them, the older nations began to Imitate our example. Freedom WM the world's dynamic, expanding force prior to 1D14. And when the Russian dynasty collapsed ;n 1817 and the German dynasty in 191S, the lart stronghold of despotism had fallen. But now what? Suddenly democracy began te take Itself for granted. Democracy like an uninspired housewife, neglected herself, then was herself reflected. Communism and racism and Nazism became the dynamic political forces. We shot twe But we failed to follow through. And since World War II, Communism has t*en capturing a hundred million new d'.'tipies every year. Our better product Is left unsold. Because they have better sales tcrnnique. For insteid of leading other nations, as IIT three million gallant forefathers did, we have been trying to puih them. Our "Declaration of Independence" has gradually been supplanted with half-a-hundred "Declarations of Dependence" on others. And so, failing to command respect, we try to buy it. T»mei have changed? Time* haven't changed. We have changed. For all our grandeur and gold we win fewer converts to democracy than our great grandfathers did with just a light in the win- The Side: HE A DST AND STIMULATES THOUGHT God and the Doctor we alike adore But only when in danger, not before; The danger o'er, both are alike requited God is forgotten and the Doctor slighted. —John Owen Can your wife stand on her head?

DAUGHTERS Daughters are, of course, more expensive to rear than sons. However, some fathers are now gutting a break in the matter of the cost of rearing a female. Some daughters, who are working girls, are paying most of the expenses of their weddings. It it said the working girl bride contributes an average of $1,000 to her wedding expenses. She willingly payi this to have an outstanding wedding. Her contribution takes care of the reception, photos, flowers and linens ASIDE!

The help is a "shot" of masculiniz- ing harmone. That may or may not be the explanation of a phenomenon which has appeared here and there around the country of late. Canary birds which sang their heads off in the pet shop, lost the gift soon after buyers took them home. Since male canaries sing enthusiastically at long as they live, that was exceedingly strange.

But here were female canaries who had been linger*, if only for a time. Unleu nature had suddenly reversed the rule, something had been done to these females. Teat FIT* Bird* K. H. Herlck and J. O. Harris, poultry scientists of the Kansaa State College of Agriculture and Applied Science, took nine young but mature female canaries. By hypodermic needle, they gave five a minute amount of a male hormone preparation. Within nine days the female chirping was beginning to sound like song, and within 12 days ail five were singing, although for only a few second* at a time. But thereafter the female* began ilnglng for progressively longer periods "and the song was indistinguishable from that of a male bird," tho scientist* reported. For . approximately one month, the live females sang and then they stopped and began chirping precisely like the four females who hadn't been treated.

McCAlfK UP Staff CertMpendtni Reports from Eastern Europe indicate that unrest Is growing in nearly all of the Soviet satellite countries. Czechoslovakia, Bulgaria and Albania are among the countries affected. In Hungary, popular opposition to the puppet regime of Premier Janos Kadar i» being kept under control by ruthless terrorism. But there Is serious dissension inside the Communist Party and a purge is under way to rid the army of disaffected elements. In East Germany, Red leaders are drafting students for forced labor or for army service to keep them under control. It is notable that all of the countries mentioned are being ruled by "Stalinist" leaders who accept Russian domination. Official Vlill Postponed A dispatch from Prague reports that Soviet Premier Nikolai A. Rulgariin and Communist Parly leader Nikita > S. Khrushchev have postponed a scheduled state visit to Czechoslovakia. There is good reason to believe that Ihe trip was postponed because of outbreaks of disorder. The Czechoslovak* prosecutor general was quoted as saying in a speech made last month that Communist leaders were the targets of "ever-increasing" violent disturbances of public order. The prosecutor-general com- plained'that prosecutors, judges and attorneys for defendants were showing alarming tendencies toward "liberalism" and encouraging offenders by fail- In* to be tough enough them. A dispatch to the London weekly newspaper Observer reported ofi Sunday that Ciech- oslovak Communist leaders "fare a challenge similar to that which started the upheavals last year in Poland and Hungary." It Is known that the economic situation In Czechoslovakia Is bad. The Prague Radio s»!d recently that the coal shortage in Chechoslovakia, the mott highly industrialized satellite, had become "catastrophic." Deportations Reported Dispatches from Vienna and Belgrade report that thousand* of Bulgarians regarded as "unreliable" are being deported te remote provincial areas. In addition, the authorltlet are recruiting Bulgarian men and -women of from IS to 10 years for labor service In Ru»- sla because they are potential trouble-makers. Even in tiny Albania, on th* Adriatic coast, there It both popular unrest and dissension inside the Communist Party. Ma). Oen. Panajot Pljaku, a veteran Communist, fled to Yugoslavia In May and sought asylum because he feared arrest as one of a group of men who oppose the "Stalinist" leadership. In none of the satellites In there any indication that a real revolt is likely. For one thing both the people at large and dissident Communists realize that Russian troops would Intervene to crush any outbreak as they .lid in Hungary. But It Is evident that Communist leaders throughout Eastern Europe are anxious. Unrest is likely to incretf* steadily. Inside Washington ... SCHOOL AID CHANCES BOOSTED BY DISPUTE WASHINGTON—The recent civil rights battle and the overwhelming victory won by the White House-directed liberal group in the House of Representatives may mean a better chance for the controversial federal aid to education Jegis- Ittion when it comes up in the House very soon. The vote on the civil rights bill weakened the already tenuous link between southern Democrats and conservative Republicans. The southern Democrats were willing to trade one of their future votes against the school bill for a OOP vote in favor of the jury trial amendment to the civil rights measure. No Republican came through on the deal as they had In the past so the Dixiecrats, may return the favor and vote for the school bill which many Republicans want to beat. The Democrats can do this in good faith since their states would be the major beneficiar- its under the school aid program. • * * • COLLEGE CHIilS—A presidential committee Is readying a new report on the "coming crisis" in providing colleges to meet the needs of today's huge elementary and high school enrollment. The problem was outlined for Congress recently by Dev- . ereaux C. Josephs, chairman of the President's Committee on Education Beyond the High School. "The first ripple of the wave of students now engulfing the nation's elementary and secondary schoo'.i hss not yet graduated from high school but will do so this year," Josephs said. "Thereafter the Impact of the greatly Increased birthrates since 1>40 will be felt with mounting intensity by year as far into the future) as we can foreee." Even by last autumn, Jaeephi said, college enrollment! "war* the highest in history, higher even than at the height of veterans' enrollment i» th* lat*> forties. "The percentage «f eollefW- age youth actually attending. college has been growing iteail- ily for many yean, and the rat*) of increase has steppe* uf> jut* in the past two or three years," Josephs declared. At the same time, Joeeptm added, the demantfs "wltWai our society for people with more than a 12th grade) eduea* tlon have been Increasing; fa**- er than the supply, a*d we) to* nothing on the horiaoB bejt !•- dicationi that thcw daiJUMtds) will Increase even more) n*M« ly In the next twe decadea. * * • • aiHAHD CAM—Tho TMt- ed State decision, temporarily stalled while awaiting •***• by the Supreme Court, to hates!
