PAGE 2 TTfEjTJPTON DAILY-TRIBUNE Saturday, Dec. ,12,1364 FOREIGN NEWS COMMENTARY By PHIL NEWSOM . UPI Foreign News Analyst Like an open wound which both fascinates and repels, the Congo permits uneasy spectators of its horrors neither to turn their backs nor wholly to avert their gaze. Nor will the Congo respond to treatment despite the many " cures prescribed for it. In the Security Council of the United Nations, 20 African and so-called non - aligned nations seek to condemn the United States and Belgium for the mercy airlift which plucked hundreds of white and Congolese hostages from the hands of Congolese rebels. They .charge the mission with being undisguised imperialism. On his side, Congolese Premier Moise Tshombe brings a counter-charge against the United Arab Republic, the Sudan and Algeria, accusing them of aiding the Communist - backed rebellion which has turned an area the size of France into bloody chaos. U.N. Job Incomplete ,, Both the charge and countercharge miss the main points. The first of these is that .when the United Nations, on the verge of bankruptcy, pulled the last of its peace-keeping forces out of the Congo last June 31, it did so with its job incomplete. The chaos which followed was inevitable. Apart from its own savage nature, the Congo's ills also may be traced to the fact that it has had too many doctors, many of whom prescribed on the basis of their own ambitions ' and who today may be found among those accusing the United States and Belgium of aggression against the Congo. The list is long and goes back to the very beginning of Congolese independence more than four years ago. Within the Congo itself there, first was Patrice Lumumba whose quick shifts fiefweeh; Washington, Moscow and' the United Nations marked him as no great prize and one whose passing came as no great loss despite the crocodile tears of Moscow, Cairo and others. Nor can Tshombe, the current premier, be labelled any prize though he probably is the most able of any who have tried the job. Tshombe's early efforts to slice off the. rich province of Katanga for himself contributed Premier Believes Irish Future is in Common Market EDITOR 'S NOTE: The;world has, many" false notions about Ireland, in the view of' the man who heads its government — and he is but to change them. In this dispatch the Irish premier talks about his country and its hopes in a wide-ranging interview with UPl's chief correspondent in Dublin.) . By DOMAL O'HIGGINS United Press International DUBLIN (UPI) —. "Ireland," says its premier, Sean F. Le­ mass, "is a progressive, modern state with a well-educated population and a per capita national income which puts it among the top 20 of the world's states." Lemass strongly opposes what he calls the "leprechaun mentality" in the popular view about Ireland. In fact he rejects it. "The conception of the Irish as a people mainly preoccupied with historic grievances and indifferent to the opportunities for development' opened up by modern technology was probably never true," he told United Press International in an interview, "But certainly it has ho relation to the situation today." High Growth Rate "We have succeeded in setting up a rate of growth in industry that few other countries have reached, much less surpassed," Lemass said. "And we regard all that we have done as no more than a good beginning." The 65-year-old Premier, who succeeded President Eamon De Valera to leadership of the powerful Fianna Fail Party, added: - "The Irish people are, %t course, aware of their history. One of the consequences of the struggles and sacrifices which previous generations had to endure is that the Irish people today are strong and resilient and determined to advance in the world," he said. Important Role Lemass, who has launched as much as did -Lumumba to the current fortunes of the Congo- Ireland's second program for economic expansion with 1970 as its deadline, believes Ire land's future lies within the-European Economic Community (EEC), or Common Market. "We are strong in our belief in the historical inevitability of Western European integration and wish to. play our full part in its development," he said "We greatly regret .the circum stances which have prevented this heretofore, and we, will jump at the first real opportunity to bring them to an end so far as this country is con cerned." Lemass sees Ireland playing an important role among the new states attaining independ ence. "Our history, with its free dom from any association with colonialism, and our own long struggle for freedom, gives us a unique status and influence amongst many of the new states, which we have tried to use to build up respect for the principles of western demo cracy, and for the basic values which determine the characteristics of our own way of life,' he said. . "Ireland is a small country and her contribution to world developments can never be very great. We have no illusions about our importance on the world stage. Nevertheless the sincerity of our devotion to the conception of world cooperation and the international rule of law provide Us with a clear line to follow' in international affairs and this is a definite advantage ' in all our contacts with other states." ATTENDS SERVICE WASHINGTON (UPI)—Presi dent Johnson took time out from affairs of state Thursday to attend a short pre-Christmas service at the Episcopal Church of the Epiphany a few blocks from the White House. The Chief Executive was accompanied by White House Press Secretary George E. Reedy and Horace Busby, another aide. He left his desk about noon and was back at the executive mansion about 40 minutes later.

WASHINGTON (UPI) — The school cafeteria is an important away - from - home market- • for food—just about $1 billion worth. The Agriculture Department has calculated that the value of food in. the three billion meals served to children in U.S. public and private schools in the 1962-63 school year was just over SI billion. The food served in public school lunchrooms had a whole: sale value" of $929 million. Pri vate schools added another $77 million to the school food market. Five years ago the value of foods served in the schools was $597 million. Most of the meals are eaten in schools that participate in the national school lunch pro ram, a joint venture of the Agrieulturo Department and state agencies. The annual convention of the National Farmers Union is:-held in- March. Consequently, the farm organization's recommendations concerning farm policy and how it feels the government should be. run are not ready when Congress convenes. The other two big farm groups—'Farm Bureau and Na tional Grange—hold their conventions before Congress con venes. Their recommendations are ready 2nd 'waiting. This year the Farmers Union called in its executive committee and came up with an eight- point national program for the consideration of Congress. The NFU's program included endorsement of medicare; a plea for congressional reform to deal with filibusters and the committee system; a legislative package of commodity programs to keep up and maintain farm income; a congressional policy statement reaffirming a national policy of preserving and strengthening the family farm; relief of the shortage ,of teachers and school facilities; an expanded program of rural area development; an end to the tight money policies of the Federal Reserve Board and inclusion of public - representatives on the board; and repeal of the section of the Taft-Hartley Act which permits adoption by states of right-to-work laws. NFU President James G. Patton called the NFU program' a reaffirmation of long-time goals of the farm organization. WASHINGTON (UPI) — An Agriculture Department analysis of the factors affecting school attendance shows that more than one - fourth of the nation's youth between 16 and 24 were school dropouts inl960. The department's Economic Research Service based its study on data derived from the 1960 general census.. ERS said the dropout rate was higher among rural than among urban youngsters. The dropout rate was higher for both farm and non-farm areas among the non - white than among the white school age population. ERS said the rates were 48 per cent for American Indians, 44 per cent for Negroes,.25 per cent for native whites, and less ' than 10 per cent for youths of Japanese and Chinese heritage. The Agriculture Department advises Christmas celebrants to give their trees plenty of water. The department said a 6-foot tree may take up as much as a quart of water a day when it is first brought indoors. The water is needed to replace the moisture given off by the needles in the warm : .atmosphere of the house. The department said the more moisture the needles give off, the more fragrant the *ree.

Zinder of E.F. Hutton & Co. says the recent sharp increase in odd-lot short sales seems to suggest that the small investor is becoming increasingly bearish. Zinder says the odd-lot short over the next few weeks since, many times in the past, rally has' developed shortly after these sales peaked out and began to turn down. s Investors Research Co. says it is too early to consider abandoning a constructive attitude toward • the market's uptrend but the situation requires close watching.

For "On the Farm Service! Financial Gossip V By JESSE BOGUE UPI Financial Editor NEW YORK (UPI) — These days leading up to New Year's should be a happy period for most United States industry, statistically-minded people believe. Since about Dec: 8 and going up to Dec. 31, on a work - year basis, industry will be working on the profit, portion of the year. The First National City Bank of New York has projected that all manufacturing industries will make a profit of about 6.7 per cent on sales this year, on the average. Some may be a little below this, although only the final figures will tell. Steel men are hopeful that this year may see a rise in the chart line for the industry's profit margin, something that would keep pace with the fat. production figures that the year. | will show. They have not had earnings totaling as much as 6 per cent of revenues since 1958, however, although nine-months earnings showed close to that figure, or about 5.8 per cent of revenue. Executives in the industry have had no occasion to worry about production this year; it still leads the world. They are concerned about the wage negotiation picture, developing around the demands of the United Steelworkers, and with the almost unavoidable certainty that it will mean higher la'bor costs in .the future. Despite the favorable earnings report in comparison with earlier depressed periods, steel earnings are certainly inadequate in relation to investment capital," said Joseph L. Block, chairman of Inland Steel Company. By LYLE WILSON United Press. International There is precedent fori, the loving care with which "Republicans are assaulting each other in public and demanding that this or that one among them be compelled to 'walk the 'plank, blindfolded, bound and gagged. Republicans merely are seeking vengeance-on someone for the humiliation that attended their recent 1 mis-matched engagement with • LBJ's legions. It is 15 years since the Republicans have been so angry among themselves. That was in the year 1949 after Harry S Truman had licked Thomas E. Dewey and the pollsters' in a presidential election. L- Then as now the Republicans demanded a scapegoat andthe choice fell on Hugh Scpltf of Pennsylvania, a young ! v -man then of misleading milk appearance who was chairman of the .Republican National Committee. So it was' that the Republican National Committee assembled in January, 1949, in Omaha, Neb., to fire Scott and to purge itself of the stupidities that had enabled an underrated little guy from Independence, Mo., to malce the Grandj Old Party and its 1948 nominee lor-k like circus clowns. All Against Scott All hands • joined to make Scott walk the plank. It was an improbable coalition against him, consisting in the main of the followers of Harold E. Stassen, then a big liberal figure in politics, of the late Robert A. Taft, Mr. Conservative himself, and of Col. Robert R. McCormick, publisher and editor of tho Chicago Tribune. These joined to indict Scott as the symbol of Dewey's misrule of the Republican party.. ^ The rebels,had picked their candidate for the chairmanship, Roy E. Dunn of Minnesota. For two days the. battle raged in the committee's Omaha hotel. The political anger was terrible to see but a pleasure to listen to. The assembled politicos became at last so venomously angry with themselves and each, other that they lapsed into the truth and began telling tales. Assembled there in Omaha were men who had been playing the tough game of politics a long time. .They knew where] the bodies were buried, who buried them and who got paid 1 • '' : '\».> t •'; . kicked down the stairs. He quit. The committee polls who tried kicking Scott discovered -that he kicked back,"", hard. He'\vas. a slugger, too, and told second guessing Republicans who objected after the election - to-his conduct during campaign that they knew where they-could-go. Moreover, he told 'em he had tapes of. their telephone conversations with him during the Dewey-Truman campaign and that they were- on record then as approving campaign tactics that now — gifted by second sight — they condemned. "Throw me out?" Scott hollered at his enemies. "You and who else, bub. Put 'em up if you wanna, fight." Perhaps Republican Chairman Dean Burch . knows. the Scott story. Burch is being just as tough now as Scott was then. He knows the world—even the political world — loves a fighter. FLORIST FIRE OCCURS FORT WAYNE, Ind.

' the battle to dust Scott, these battlers told all or almost' all. Scott Keeps Job News reporters would have been- willing to pay their way into that national committee meeting if it had not been for free. A good time was had by- all except the politicians. When the showdown came Scott kept his job by a vote of 54 to 50 and the curtain came down on as rousing a political show as ever was. Seven months later Scott did resign as national chairman.. But he wasn't thrown out or ready is sold out. The last of the 36,278 tickets were sold Tuesday morning for the game which could determine the Eastern Division champion in the American Football League.
