He was 15 years old, and he was driving a stolen car. He had admitted In Pu- «blo that he had killed an elderly man in soulhcastcrn Colorado because his viclim was "no good." lie freely repealed the admission to Greelej- police, The very youthful patient at 15 years of age was a skillful driver. He must have driven long before he was IS, which made him very J-oung. Did he learn to drive legally, with the proper learner's permit? If so, he must have had a driver's license. If not, he learned to drive well enough to steal a car, bring it up to Weld county for a brief itay, and sturl soulh again, without ever having a driver's license. No one ejpccjs an escapee to produce a driver' license, It is also known that many lads learn to drive without lessons. they simply walch their father closely and ask questions. They learn well, if Ihey could be as fascinated with school lessions they would be brilllanl scholars. How many such learners go ahead and drive without a license? Koivmany unlicensed drivers, of. all ages are using the crowned highways? C4J CoW W»r Ntver Really Stopped ly WILLIAM L.

Organization Needed for N.W. Power, Sec, McKay Forecasts HONOLULU Lfl -- Secretary of Interior McKay estimated Thursday a three billion dollar, outlay in the next 10 years was. needed for water power development in the Pacific Northwest. The visitinfi Cabinet official told the' Honolulu Chamber o f , Commerce, however, that -the 'need could be met only · by · "parlner-i ship between the federal government and local groups"--both public and private. "In the past 10 years," h$ said, "Congress has appropriated only about half as much as will be needed in Ihe future. And Hie outlook in Congress is certainly not favorable to the great increase In appropriations which would be necessary." McKay said the problems of future water power .development arc so great in the United States that "they must be approached on a cooperative basis"--adding: "The issue is not, as you may have heard, public versus private power," McKay said that "fortunately, the forward-looking partnership program has won widespread support a'nd we can expect giant strides to he made in partnership developments in the Northwest in the critical period that lies ahead." McKay denied frequent Democratic charges t h a t his department Is engaged in a "give-away" program. "f can tell you flatly," he said, ''that we have not given anything away. There have been accusations that we were giving nway park lands, and wildlife refuges with both hands." lie said 400,000 acres had been added to the park system and T9,- 946 acres to wildlife refuges since 1053. ' ' LOS ANGELES Wl -The flie chief of,Ios Angeles has been suspended because he refused to in- Icgrale white and Negro firemen. Johnson Alder'son, for 15 years the head of this city's fire department, was ousted Thursday by the fire commission on charges, of insubordination. Aldcrson has five days In which to file an appeal to the suspension order. lie had announced previsou- ly he planned to retire on Jan. 1. It was reported that despite the outcome of the current .action he'll draw a $10,000 annual pension. .! The chief had openly defied the ommission's orders to Integrate ic fireman. Last week he moved 11 Negro firemen back together fter a brief trial of assigning a :sv of them into previously all- 'hite stations. He said he made le move because .there had been ireats of violence. Mayor Norris Poulson and the ire commission have been at odds vith the chief during the past year. fter the suspension,'the mayor aid, "No man can be-permitted o place himself above the charter if this city and the laws o f ' t h i l lation." U o p u I y Chief F. Harry Itothermcl was named acting chief n Ihe §15,500 post. period the NATO council itself would not be facing at th|s moment Hie urgent necessity of seeking out ways to meet new Soviet challenges. These challenges are deadly ones. The Soviet economic and political offensives in vast'areas of the world arc backed up, in the estimation of Ihe NATO planners, by a greater Soviet military threat against the Western world than ever before. Yet military measures alone would fall far short 'of meeting the threat. . . ' , . - . . The height ot the Soviet smile offensive was reached In July, when the heads of the slale ot the.four powers were preparing to meet at the · ummit in Geneva. Yet at that same moment, Soviet representatives were in Egypt arranging the arms deal that was to throw the Middle F.ast'inlo cpnfusion. Plans were underway lo sow hatred of the Wesl «nd confusion over colonialism throughout the vvhole Eastern world. Western memories seem woefully short. The year 1J55 began win a violent' attack upon the Western alliance 'and the United States in r'arlicular, utlered by Foreign Minister Molotov at the Supreme Soviet meeting. At t h a t time Imporlnnl decisions were reached in Moscow- rTecUions looking toward a bold and imaginative offensive tc, catch the unrommilled World with its' guard down. . " E v e r y move appeared to b. well calculated, The Russian., afler holding 'up .Austrian independence for years, reaped a harvest of propaganda by finally doing what they should have done long before. , They also paved the way for the summit meeting »nd the foreign ministers' session which were fo follow. ·^Russians gave back the Porkal. base to.Finland, and then .«! that act to bolster their drive against American bases.

VOCATIONAL SCHOOL To The Tribune: ' ' 'hi a recent editorial, the Tribune quoted Marion B. Folsom, secre- lafy of health, education and welfare, is challenging welfare work' «rs to find hew and better ways tf helping citizens to help themselves, to prevent poverty rather than simply "to relieve H. Every welfare worker in the counlry must certainly applaud Secretary rolsom'i idea. In Weld County alone, during the winter of 1954-55, «early 910,000 was spent for direct relief. This is all County money with J» Slale or Federal subsidy, and no'pretense is made tha single cent of it is, or ever has been, designed' to prevent poverty The above figure does not in- ttude the nearly $250,000 spent for medical assistance and hospitaliza tioil of the indigent ill in WeU Cwmly, which can scarpely be called "preventive," since it was for! the treatment of existing ill Df.ises.) .Th flO.OCO was spent mainly lo loedind fuel to maintain already poverty-ridden families through th winter m cruelly sub-standard con rfrlion. Allowance per family o Oils dole, whether there arc tw chiWren or 14, is J50 per month fo food, and $10 P?r mont!, for fue This winter, Weld County's expen dilure for direct relief will undoub Hallmark ·Christmas Carris For Family and Friends 41yequal last year'i, piny «V«n .ceed it. Case workers try to pre- ent recurring poverty among niilies who have received direct eliof, attempt to help them pla\ put a little money or food aside 1 the lean winler -months. The nix of the problem in Weld County es, however, in the phrase "lean inter months". In our prtdomi- antly agricultural economy, 'there simply not enough work .in the inter for the pool of unskilled !a- xr which ii necessary to get us trough the crop season.. Greeley Chamber of Commerce s working manfully for industry in Greeley, but any man or woman, ny corporation or company which esisls the establishment of a ear-round industry in' the com- nunity is' simply asking t h a t a lice of his or their county, tax dol- ars be spent, wasted, in a doje ystem. As a welfare worker, I should ike also to point out the need for vocational school in Weld Coun- y, one which would wean the sons and daughters of our unskilled abor group away from the fat- summer-lean-winter philosophy, school which would train boys and girls in such practical, elemental skills as running a cash register, operating a dishwasher or automatic washer, or how to grease car. A school which would prepare young people lo be good waitresses, filling-statioi attendants, · domestics, or clerks. A school that would leach its students that a small, steady job is better than a beel contract, in the long pull. There 1 nothing 'undemocratic about this kind of school. Democracy entcn here no more than in the decision not to force a crippled boy to play football. Undoubtedly Weld County wel fare workers could do more than they now rlo toward the prevention of poverty, but the'basic problem in our area lies in a broadening and strengthening of our entire lo cal economy.
