PAGE SIX SHAMOKIN NEWS-DISPATCH, SHAMOKIN, PA, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 1962 Elections and Press The newspapers of this country seldom emerge unscathed from a general election campaign. Yet 1962 is distinguished by the fact that criticism has come from such major candidates as Richard M. Nixon and Ohio's Governor Michael DiSalle. What these two men say, in essence, is that newspaper reporters, and sometimes their publisher bosses, do not give a fair shake to candidates they oppose or dislike. It is argued that newsmen, at the very least, fail to report what such candidates do and say, and at the most actually slant or distort their dispatches. Now, to begin with, roughly two thirds of the nation's daily newspaper publishers are Republicans. It is hard to imagine them countenancing distortion in favor of Democrats. Most publishers, whatever their personal views, lean over backwards to treat the news fairly. Three-fourths of California's daily papers endorsed Nixon for the governorship. Included was a large Los Angeles daily which he took to task for reporting a slip of the tongue he made, but not recording one by victorious Governor Edmund G. (Pat) Brown. DiSalle, of course, took in even more territory than Nixon in his long blast at the press. He complained of hostile editorial attitudes. But newspapers under Republican publishers have been opposing Democrats for top office for long decades. And Democrats go right on winning big. They hold more than two thirds of the governorships today, and have ruled Congress for all but four of the past 30 years. As a breed, political reporters are generally an extremely diligent, conscientious lot. Though they often see much shabbiness and sometimes must listen to the wildest nonsense, they usually avoid cynicism. They need a capacity for enduring endless repetition in campaign utterance. And they undergo nearly as much physical and mental strain as some of the candidates. They move into a typical political situation with the simple purpose of finding out what's happening, and then telling the story. If they can, they try to humanize it in the process. Not everything they learn can be agreeable reading for both candidates. Somebody is going to win and somebody lose. The reasons may include some unhappy facts. "Balance" which concealed such facts would be real distortion. Now those newsmen who venture forecasts do not usually spin them out of thin air. They tap all the political experts they can find. And they write what they learn because they think the public wants to know how the races are going. At the heart of democracy is the voter's right to choose. To do that well he needs full and fair information. It hardly helps for Nixon or DiSalle or any other candidate to treat as enemies those newsmen who believe that fairness means presenting the uncomfortable facts along with the agreeable evidence. Other Editors Say Sooner or later (and probably later) Congress will get around to reforming the present meaningless regulations on campaign contributions and spending for federal office campaigns. The situation only can get a lot worse as time goes on. Sooner or later (and probably later) Pennsylvania will get a State Administration that takes seriously the present campaign contribution-pending regulations, inadequate as they are, and which will enforce the law. It is almost completely disregarded now. Harrisburg Patriot-News As the demands for state services grow, the state will have to have fewer rather than more exemptions from the sales tax, which is now its largest producer of revenue. In fact it has been argued from the outside that eventually Pennsylvania will have to impose a general rather than a selective sales tax if the cost of the state government continues to mount. Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Much more comprehensive civil service coverage is a must for this state, either through amendments of the present constitution or through a brand new one.

C.-Ifs not quite the final conflict, but on December 11 the government of the U.S.will try the Communist Party, U.S.A., in a federal courthouse here. No man will stand in the docket. It is the party itself which will stand trial. The government says it is a foreign agent and must register as such. This means that Bob Kennedy's Department of Justice will attempt to prove that the Communist Party is Soviet-directed. So the blue chips are finally down on the Red issue. This case can't be won by oratory or courtroom wizardry. The Justice Department's Internal Security Division, directed by an objective and experienced counselor. Assistant Attorney General J. Walter Yea-gley, must believe it has the evidence to link the American Communist apparatus to the Soviet government itself. This could mean the final exposure of underground cells, couriers, secret communications. We may even hear the names of those Soviet officials from whom the American Communists take direct orders. Skilled FBI agents will go on the stand and the cry will go up that they are "paid informers." Some of the outcries will be sincere. But most will come from those who condone the most gargantuan system of informers ever created the Soviet blockby-block, house-by-house, secret police network from the Baltic to the Bering Sea. When all the trials and appeals are over, no one will be able to say the Communist Party has not had its day even its years in court The party was first indicted December 1, 1961, on 12 counts involving failure to register. Its final appeal was heard in open court before Federal Judge Edward M. Curran on October 12. 1962. Communist Party Attorneys John J. Abt and Joe Forer had their full say and some of it was sharply said. But the judge set December 11 for the trial to begin. This is more than a year after a grand jury brought in the original indictment No judge has been assigned to the case. He will be selected by chance, depending on the availability of those on the federal bench. The party wd have the right to a jury trial. If it is convicted it can be fined $10,000 on each count. Under the McCarren Act the party's leaders themselves must register as well as register the Communist Party. They have refused and they must be tried separately. Two men, defiant and utterly free to voice their defiance across the world over any media, have been indicted for refusing to register as Communist officials. They are Gus Hall and Ben Davis. No trial date has been set for them. Still other tests of the law are coming and will come for decades. The Justice Department has asked the Subversive Activities Control Board to rule that 10 persons are members of the Communist Party and therefore must register as rank and filers. The board has ruled on some and is moving to the West Coast to conduct bearings on others. Each has the right to reject the board's findings. And the right to appeal the board's decision to the Supreme Court If they lose before the high court they must stand trial. New verdicts can be appealed again right up to the Supreme Court Meanwhile there is no restriction on the movements or political or professional activities of those indicted or those who speak in the name of the Communist Party. One who can least complain, though he does so most loudly, is the party's leading spokesman, Gus Hall. He is free to do here what he could not do for an hour inside the Soviet Union. He has called press conferences and has accused the FBI of criminality, of support for the American Nazi Party, of racial and religious prejudice. He has attacked President Kennedy, accusing him and our government of subversion and terror. At the same time Hall has been quoted on the Moscow radio as the partisan of Fidel Castro. The Communist Party feels no inhibitions either. It produces propaganda movies. It runs mass meetings. It uses the old cash collection techniques to raiss untraceable "anonymous" funds by the hundreds of thousands of dollars. Our land may not be the Communist Party leaders' image of "the workers paradise," but the party and its people do quite well. Somehow they never run out of cash, cars, and good living. Soon we'll know how the most proletarian of parties can offer up such comforts. Hollywood . . By Erskine Join nson Member Audit Bureau of Circulation! National Repreaentativt Gallagher-DeLisaer, Inc. Entered u Second Clast Mail Mattel al Shamokin, Fa, So who's afraid of the big bad scene stealers of Hollywood kids, limping dogs and Cary Grant? Yes, I said "limping" dog. The influence, no doubt, of Chester and Grandpa McCoy, who made limping on television as famous as mugging. So who's afraid? Not Tony Curtis, who is the reason we mentioned the name of Cary Grant in the B.B.S.S. league. Tony put Grant's name in there with a pained look of memory on his face. He was telling us about co-starring himself with a dog in his next movie, a wild comedy. Not just an ordinary dog, you understand. This dog, a French poodle, will be so smart the director better watch out There is a chance, as every owner of a French poodle will swear, that the dog could wind up directing his own scenes. The film, "Monsieur Cognac," stars the poodle in the title role of a French Lassie. He is a star of stage, screen and television in France. But good-natured and loveable like Lassie he is not He is as vicious and as temperamental as a p re-television movie queen. When the poodle sees things are not going his way, he fakes a limp like Chester's. This puts Tony in the dog house with a film company starring the pooch. They can't complete the film with a dog that limps. "Some people," Tony grinned, "may get the idea I have a desire to put myself out of the business. Who's going to look at me with that poodle limping around? Well, I'm not worried. I survived a movie (Petticoat Fever) with Cary Grant. After that one, I figured I can work against anybody." (Currently: Yul Brynner in "Ta-ras Bulba.") Tony was reluctant to discuss Grant's scene-stealing tricks but a limp Cary doesn t need yet Tony was sitting behind a desk with a top almost as big as an aircraft carrier's deck in the office of "Tony Curtis Enterprises" at Universal. One of the enterprises listed on a shingle outside his door was "Curtleigh Prod." a name combination made when he was married to Janet Leigh. They're now divorced but Tony is stuck with the "leigh." He will not change it though, "until the time is right financially." In Hollywood, people can break their marriage up more conveniently than corporate unlinking. If you have been wondering about the plot of "Monsieur Cognac", the poodle (trained to walk on three legs) develops the limp in a big pout over Tony's romance with his mistress. She will be played by Christine Kaufman, the perky French-German actress with whom he was seen all over Europe this summer. A "Curtistine Productions" does not sound likely, however. We Short Ribs asked him about a recent "one star in the family is enough" statement attributed to him and he stuck to it "The marriage relationship," he said, "should be on the man's terms. The husband should motivate things in life and be the money earner. But I don't mean that the wife has to run into the kitchen and just stay there." He wouldn't be pinned down on the next Mrs. Curtis, whoever she may be. Also on the schedule of Tony's own film company is a re-make for the third time of the old comedy hit "Room Service." A new twist on the plot, he indicated, will put him back in the feminine duds be wore in "Some Like It Hot." After working with that poodle, he may even come up with a limp.

Washington . . . . By Peter Edson Your Health W. G. Brandstadt, M.D. A very wise gentleman, taking note of the widespread unrest and just plain jitters in our midst, placed sll the blame on communications. In ea-lier times a man hardly knew what was going on in the next village. Now he hears disturbing reports about skulduggery in Cuba, revolt in Algeria, murders in Africa, and Communist infiltration in Laos. It is as though your pe cocker could smell every plate of dog food and hear every yelp of canine rage all over the world at any given moment You would have to take him to the vet and isk that be be put out of his misery. Now to put us temporarily out of our misery, the drugstores have added tranquilizers to the already overly popular sleeping pills. Do not misunderstand me. Foth types of pill are a much-needed help to physicians in the treatment of certain nervous and n.ental diseases but to use them for every flutter in the pit of the stomach is a gross abuse and one that nature has a way of punishing. The average American has become so used to speed that he expects a quick answer to every problem. It need not be the best answer or even the right answer but it must be quick. Since tranquilizers were first used in mental hospitals in 1953, their use has spread to millions of persons who are not in hospitals and who would be bette off if they had never heard of tranquilizers. It is true that some of the most effective tranquilizers, like mep-robamate and chlorpromazine. cannot be bought without a doctor's prescription. However, other drugs, notably antihistamines originally developed to combat allergies, have been found to have a depressant action on the brain. Some of these are now sold over the counter as tranquilizers. Shakespeare said, "Oh God, that men should put an enemy in their mouths to steal away their brains!" He was referring to alcohol, but the same might be said of any drug that depresses mental activity and makes us less alert especially if it is self-prescribed. Just to make sure not to miss any bets, the manufacturers of these widely advertised tranquilizers now put out pills that contain a mixture of several drugs. These include bromides, which are relatively harmless except that they cause some persons to develop pimples; painkillers of the type derived from coal tar, which may also depress heart action, and hyoscine, the drug used to Induce twilight sleep. Your Career Roberta Fleming Roesch "Give me two weeks of your concentrated time and I'll make you look 20 again!" the beauty authority assured me, looking at me so appraisingly that I felt like Eliza Doolittle in the middle of "Pygmalion." My first thought was "I'll do it!" This was opportunity! So even though my heart had doubts that this could be achieved, I asked, in the timid little voice that's all I can ever manage when a Mr. John or a Mr. Jack begins the "Madam needs this" routine, exactly what I would need. As I listened and heard the many requirement for keeping me from growing older, my first thought turned to a second thought: Did I want to be 20 again? At 20, I suddenly reasoned, if my husband turned to lxk at me twice he should look the otherway because, with his graying temples, Miss Twenty would pass him by. When my children called out their daily "Mom's" they'd be barking at the wrong ears because, if I were 20, they'd be too old to be mine. My own work and opportunities would mostly go down the drain because, when I was 20, I only thought I'd learned how to do what experience later taught It's easy when mirrors give us a start to think of the teens and twenties as the "growing," glowing days of our lives when opportunity knocks. But would you really want to turn back, on serious second thought? Would you really want to turn in all the things you've acquired and learned in your "growing older" years? Granted there's shining challenge in facing the world at 20 with your future much like a book's blank page, waiting to be filled. But each age has opportunities for chapters in that book, whether yiu're presently in the chapter in which you're starting your first job. beginning your married life, having your first baby, getting ahead in what you want to do, sending your last child to first grade so you can face the world with 30 or 40 years to achieve your own ambitions or Miring from an active family or business life to go on to something new. The important thing in your life, at whatever chapter you're in, is not the fact that you grow older but that, if you really will it you keep on growing, too!

Assistant Secretary of Defense John Rubel has a reputation for being an opponent of greatly expanded Department of Defense activities in space. So the saying now current about the Pentagon is: "I wouldn't give a Rubel for the chances of a big United States military space program." Bob Hope explained to a London audience recently that there art no titles in the United Slates. "No sir," said Hope, "in America we just have two classes the people and the Kennedys. . . and there are more Kennedys than people." With the elections still a week off when Hope made this crack he may not have fully realized its significance. The final election report from Rhode Island shows that J. F. Kennedy was defeated in the past mid-term election. This Kennedy, of no know relation to the President with the same initials, ran against but lost, to John Edward Fogarty, who was re-elected to the House. When spaceman Walter Schirra had his astronaut wings pinned on by Navy Secretary Fred Korth, a discussion developed as to whether this meant he should no longer wear his naval aviator wings. Vice Admiral R. B. Pirie, retiring head of navy aviation, said it certainly meant no such thing. But Admiral George W. Anderson Jr., chief of naval oper ations, wasn't certain this was an authoritative answer. There was some thought among the group that Pine just might be sentimental about navy aviation. The admirals present who believed that both sets of wings should be worn couldnt agree where they should be -vom. Some said one should be on the top. Some said the other. Finally. Schirra put his astronaut wings above his ribbons, his aviator wings below, until some expert could decide on this very grave matter. Sen. John Tower of Texas says he is taking along on his fall world tour a staff assistant just recently rehired. He is Pierce Langford III. Wichita Falls banker, who piloted the campaign plane for unsuccessful Texas GOP gubernatorial candidate Jack Cox. Langford often serves as Tower's personal pilot At a press conference. Tower was asked: "Isn't Langford an Independently wealthy man?" Replied Tower: "I wouldn't characterize him as that." Asked another reporter: "Then is he just wealthy?" After the laughs subsided, Tower explained that, "Langford comes from a family long prominent in banking, business, lumberand some oil." The next question was: "Are you going to use government counterpart funds to pay your expenses on this trip?" "No!" replied Tower. "This is going to be strictly a non-Adam Clayton Powell trip. Actor, Harry Hirschfield, who at 77 is dean of all tellers of Jewish stories in the country, had a few new ones on government officials for his appearance at the Circus Saints and Sinners luncheon lampooning Secretary of State Dean Rusk. He told about a Christian diplomat who came back from Israel tremendously impressed by the impact of the country and the friendliness of the people. They greeted him with "shalom" peace whenever he met them and "shalom" whenever they parted. When he asked why they gave the same greeting on meeting and parting, an Israeli told him. "Well, some of our officials don't know whether they're coming or going." Hirschfield also related New York Gov. Nelson Rockefeller, campaigning for re-election byj eating bagels and lox in New. t York's East Side, was told by one voter: "You keep eating that food and you won't live to get the Jewish vote." Then, according to Hirschfield, when President Kennedy called Arthur Goldberg to tell him he would be nominated for Justice of the Supreme Court. Mrs. Goldberg answered the phone. "He Isn't here," she said. "Who is this?" "The President," came the reply. Asked Mrs. Goldberg. "From what synagogue?" Broad Wdy ....

The enamored chap has a few entanglements that might cramp his style, but if Edie indicated an interest, he's the boy who could figure a way out. If the new musical "Nowhere to Go But Up" doesn't make the grade and it was panned by, most of the critics it will gi down in the books as this season's most expensive theatrical mistake. It cost about 1500,000 to bring it in. (And with no big star in it like Mary Martin or Ethel Merman, so that gives you a quick, picture of the high cost of putting on a Broadway show) . . . Singer Joya Sherill, who toured Russia with Benny Goddman's band, plans another mission to Moscow with Sol Hurok as her impresario, probably in January.

One of Broadway's most beloved actors has his friends worried. He seems to have gone off the deep end for a glamorous singing star, and doesn't appear to care who knows it-even his wife.

In a world where it has become fashionable for domestics to write tiieir memoirs even about royalty and the first family it comes as no surprise that Gina Lollo-brigida's English nanny, who took care of the star's small son, quit with the announcement that she had to work all hours of the day and night No word on who put the gun to her head.

World Today ... bv pm Newsom UPI Foreign News Analyst Even in these days of massive government expenditures, $900-millior must be regarded as a fairly sizable sum. It is the figure involved in mostly unpublicized negotiations r-urrentl:- going on between representatives of the West and East German governments, and the mere notice that such negotiations e;.ut may come as a surprise to those who believe that an impenetrable vacuum exists between these two reminders that World War n left a divided world. But more than that is a suggestion that hard economics may help toward solution of a problem that continues to defy diplomats. The problem is the continuing one of a free West Berlin. The Western Allies have agreed there can be no compromise on three fundamentals: continued Western presence in West Berlin (meanh; the Allied garrisons), freedom of western access to the ciy and conditions to insure the fiture freedom and peace of West Berlin. Rights of Conquest The first two are based on rights of conquest and agreements concluded between the western belligerents and the Soviet Union six months before the war in Europe ended. The third is perhaps the most difficult because it is the least clearly defined. Driginal allied agreements in London and Potsdam looked toward f eventually reunited Germany and a single peace treaty, and therefore did not foresee the need nearly 20 years later of guaranteed access to Berlin. But that such a situation exists Is a fact and is aggravated by continuing Soviet threats to sign a separate peace treaty with the east and thus place control of Berlin access in the hands of the Comm'mist East Germans. This is where current negotiations between the two German zones come in. The impoverished East German zone is desperately in need of money and has asked the West German? for nearly $900 million in I org term credits. The East German regime, according to the institute of economic ,esearch in West Rerlin, owes the Soviet Union $675 million payable in hard cash. Wan Repaid Events have shown that the Soviets wul advance credits, bans o. other aid to further their ideological ambitions but they also want to be repaid. A recent example is Soviet re lations with Red China which nou is reporteJ paying a heavy prick h for previous Soviet financial and technical favors. At cny rate, the East Germans apparently have had little luck either in raising the money they already owe the Soviet Union or in obtaining new credits. Therefore, they have turned to Bonn. Bonn in turn, supported by its allies, is reported making a condition of any new credits assurance that there will be no change in Berlin access routes. And this means that there shall be no attempt V the Communist east to set up a visa system which in effect would mean recognition of an independent East Germany.
