(See'Complete forecast, Page 2) VOLUME LXXII HURON SOUTH DAKOTA FRIDAY, OCTOBER 4.1957 SINGLE COPV 7e Good Morning B y . DICK WILLIAMS AFTER LISTENING; to the Rev. Palmer E. Swehson, First Baptist church pastor at their Recognition banquet Thursday, Beadle County 4-H'ers should .appreciate life in the country. ..Rev. Swenson, who studied for the -ministry in Chicago, certainly made the big city sound unsightly and unsavory. · "Chicago people don't,.even know what grass is,'l he'said. That, of course, was an exaggeration., Chicago people know - what' grass is but theyj just don't have; much of it in some sections. Slum "areas, . for instance i sometimes 'don't have even so much as a blade of grass. It : dbesri't even grow' in what little yard area .there is because the 'building's 'are so close together the grass ' doesn't' ge* any sun '. . . or something.. ·· AND"REV.' SWENSON was in the slum's.'. · He "recalls he took a group of youngsters from. that., area to Brookfield ,2oo to see the animals. Brookfield,' 'remember, is a famous zoo -- one of the best in the nation."., ! "They weren't interested in a single animal," he said. "They ran,' and rolled and played in the grass. . .'. They didn't look in. a-single. cage or pen, they just rolled and :screamed and kicked in the grass." "What I'm-trying to impress iipon. you youn? folks is It's a great privilege to live out| here," the Rev Swenson said. Even if the 4-H youngsters, don't appreciate their advan- l"'-;es, the Chicago youngsters · do. The advantages ( are impressed upon the young Chicagons early in December each year when thousands of 4-H youngsters from all 'over the nation descend on Cb' : 'V t ' T n in a body for the National 4-H Club Congress. ' - i What a : time those 4-H yo''ngslerS'have! · ' ; They have' lo be' up a n d j dressed for-breakfast- by seven! and from that-time on il's'runj run, run all day -- except when it is eat, eat, eat. That's about the only time in their lives that these youngsters will ever have filet mignon for breakfast. THESE MEALS are provided by various commercial firms who also provide entertainment --'and the entertainment is top-notch. It includes some of the most noted entertainers in show business. Not only 'that, they come home loaded with souvenirs-many of which are quite valuable. BUT THAT'S BESIDE the point -- and so is the fact that these, youngsters have the time of their lives. The most remarkable things are the attitudes, behavior and poise they show when they are thrown into 1 an entirely foreign atmosphere.

THEDWAY couple of hours has taken the edge off the -newness, they are as much at home as they would bo anywhere. ' Part of this adaptability is the result of farm living. But a lot of it -- perhaps most -is the result of their experience in 4-H work. IN ORDER' TO GET to Chicago, a youngster has,to be a top-notch 4-H'er which means he is exceptional, of course. But there are. plenty of 4-H youngsters who -never get to Chicago who .develop the same desirable characteristics. . And t h e s e characteristics are so obvious that anyone can spot them -- pyen a native- born Chicago b6y, like the one who was running the elevator at the Hotel Sherman which traditionally is the headquarters for the 4-H Congress.

U.S. Won't Speed Up Its Own Efforts Eisenhower -Takes Soviet Triumph Calmly;' Doesn't Show Any Surprise WASHINGTON (UP) - T h e Soviet conquest O of outer space will not force the United States to speed up its efforts to launch an American-made moon, the White House announced Saturday. ^ President Eisenhower' took the historic Soviet triumph calmly and was not surprised, White House spokesman James C. Hag erty said. The President remainec at his Gettysburg farm and playei golf but kept in telephone contac \yith'Washington aides. Diplomatic and scientific .officials ..assessing the worldwide implications of the Russians achievement admitted concern. They said the size of, the Soviet satellite shows that Russia may not have been bluffing' when it recently claimed development of an intercontinental ballistic missile--the "ultimate , weapon." Stale D e p ' a r t m e n ' t officials feared (hat Russia may. have scored its greatest propaganda victory.

He denied lhat Ihis country was in a race with Russia anc lost. · A' reporter asked what effect .he Soviet achievement will have on the -U.S. satellite program, which calls for the-first launching next spring. ."Not a thing," Hagerty replied. He declined to elaborate on his statement that the government was not taken by surprise. Technicians who operate the noon-tracking electronic brain at the headquarters of the U1S. geo- hysical year team here had been ;iven the weekend off. They, at 'east, were not forewarned. High U.S. officials as recenlly as last month discounted Russian claims of advanced rocket development and predictions of early satellite launchings.

Lusk, editor and publisher of .The Daily Plainsman. Answering questions from an audience of several hundred persons, Senators Karl, Mundt and Francis A. Case vigorously defended their votes in the last Senate session against federal construction of a "high" dam at Hell's Canyon. Rep. George McGovcrn told the Farmers Union audience that lie favors federal construction of a high dam at Hell's Canyon and declared he would vole for such a dam if the issue comes up in the House next year. McGovern said that a high dam would benefit not only the people of Oregon, Washington and Idaho but a 11 Americans including people, in South Dakota. He said that the Tennessee Valley Authority has proved its usefulness to the South and that Hell's Canyon would benefit the Northwest in the same way. Senators Mundt and Case argued that a high dam would cost the taxpayers too much money and that whenever private intcr- ;s(s are willing to develop power sources they should be allowed to do'so. They said further that Hell's Canyon would not help South Dakotans but would benefit only one stale, Oregon, which already is well' ahead of South Dakota in public power development. * Rep. E. Y.
