POUR IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE, IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN TUESDAY, JULY 13, 1963. IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE "The Daily Globe is an independent newspaper, supporting what it believes to be rrghf and opposing what it believes to be wrong, regardless of party politics, and publishing the news fairly and impartially." —Linwood I. Noyes, Editor and Publisher, 1927-1964. Mrs. tinwood I. Noyes, President Edwin J. Johnson, Editor and Publisher The Dirksen Amendment Senate- Republican Leader Everett M. Pirfc- •sen, before veentering Walter Rood Hospital on July S—for a recurrence of stomach distress ' —said lie hopes to pry out of the Senate Judiciary Committee sliortlv his resolution for a constitutional amendment on legislative rcap- - portionment. The key figure in the sunrom- mitee struggle is Son. Jacob Javits (1\-X Y,). \vlio has boon favoring the Dirksen Aiiviul- ment who is being pressured by his liberal friends. "List me as doubtful on tins," favits said as the vote ncared. The amendment sponsored bv Dirksen \\mild permit the voters in eaeh stale to dctcnnine whether one house of their loeislaturo should he elected on other than a population basis. The constitutional change, would in [tart compensate for the blow to uuci|ual apportionment in state legislatures .struck bv decisions of the U.S. Supreme Court in a croup of appealed cases on June 15. 196-f. The Court's central holding was that the 14th Amendment's equal protection clause "requires that the scats in both houses of a bicameral state legislature must be apportioned on a population basis." A Dirksen attempt at a "remedy" by statute rather than by amending the constitution brought on a month- long filibuster by Senate liberals last year and went down to defeat. The Supreme Court held also that "mathematical exactness of precision" in caning out legislative districts might be impossible, but that apportionment must be "based substantially on population." The "so-called federal ' analogy" was ruled "inapplicable as a sustaining precedent" for the states. Even a referendum upholding apportionment other than by population was ruled out because a "citi- ?en's constitutional rights ccan hardly be infringed upon because a majority of the people choose to do so." As a result of the Court's rulings last June, 38 states have felt the sting of reapportion- rrient rulings. Nebraska has a unicameral s f ale legislature. Alaska and New Hamshire reapportioned on their own. Reapportionment has been aceommpiisbed. according to the Council of Slate Governments, in 15 states. However, in at least four oi these states the new seating plans arc under further court challenge. The Dirksen Amendment resolution is faced with a possible filibuster when and if it docs reach the Senate floor. Dirksen on julv fi expressed confidence that "we'll have the votes for passage when the time corncs." Failure of the Dirk.sen Amendment would eventually mean full implementation of the Court's "one man, one vote" concept. Democrats would probably benefit more than Republicans in northern states. Republicans would have the edge in border and southwestern states. Malapportionment of the Arizona. Maryland and New Mexico legislatures has kept the Democrats in power despite an upsurge of Republican strength in suburban districts. But Richard M. Scammon, former director of the Census Bureau, has observed that "The '.suburban sole' in America, while still more Republican than that of the whole country, seems to be tending more and more toward the national average—because the national average is becoming more and more suburban." Progress Report on Roads What President Eisenhower once called "the greatest public \\orks program in history" is half\\ay to completion. This is the 41.000-mile interstate highwav svstein, begun in 19ofi and scheduled for completion bv 1972. More man 20.000 miles of the superhighway network now is open to traffic and construction is under wav on another 6.000 miles. To mark the hallwav point, a two-dav national highwav conference will bo held in Washington starling Monday. July 19. Sponsor of the conference is Ihe Associated General Contactors of America, representing 7.600 i/en- oral contractors—half of them roadbmldevs. As the contractors ro\ icw their performance record to date they have reason for general satisfaction. Earlv scandals involving shodcK madbuildiiig. corruption and mismanagement seem to luue been cleared up in most states. Any motorist traveling across the couutrv will testifv that the completed portions are a jo\ to ride and greatly cut travel time. One continuing problem has to do with iinancing. President Eisenhower thought the system would cost $41 billion to complete. But the Bureau of Public Roads m>w estimates lhat the system will cost S46.S billion. To cover a thealened So.l billion defit in the special trust fund, President Johnson has asked lor road-user tax increases on truckers and a five-month extension on the collection of all trust-fund taxes beyond the Oct. 1, 1972. cutoff date. Principal sources of revenue for the 'rust hind are a 4 cents-a-gallon motor fuel tax. a 10-cents-a-pound tire and inner tube tax, and •S3-per-l.OOO-pounds tax on big trucks and buses. The average motorist now pays S30 a year into the fund, while each big truck nays in SI,350 a year. Rising cost estimates, an apparent desire in Congress to add to the system even before it is completed, and the looming problem of paying for maintenance (presently a state responsibilitv) all them to 'iidi- cate that road users will be paying into the fund long after 1973. A social outcast is an honest person who always tells the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Medical research scientists are teaching baboons to smoke cigarettes. Getting all puffed up is one way to ape humans. As long as the Treasury is revising our silver coins, how about revising the dollar to be worth 100 cents? Safety belts in your car won't prevent accident injuries You have to use 'em! "Gumption" is a good old word that may vanish from lack of use. A Black Period for Communists (Copyright 1965, King Features Syndicate. Inc.) By lohn Chamberlain The foreign minister of Ruritania was on his favorite subject: The inability of American "liberals" to see the world as it reullv is. "I see by your papers," he said, "that there's grumbling among the liberal pundits tlnit Lyndon Johnson has bitten off more than he can chew in trying to hold the line against- the Communists around the world. But have the liberals ever tried to imagine what things must look like these days from Mosx-ow and Peking? "Why, in Moscow this must look lik<- the blackest summer ever. Nothing is coming up roses for Kremlin foreign policy. Here the Soviets are committed to building defense.* for Hanoi in North Viet Nam. Under their theory of support for Socialist countries they rniA get out of it. But what if, for reasons of face, they were ever forced real!}' to defend the defenses? What have they got for war, with the Gobi Desert and the Himalayas between them and the front? Back home in Russia they've had to put more money into trying to build up agriculture to the point where it "can feed the Soviet people. They've had to icslore at least an imitation of the profit motive in industry in order to get anybody to work. What have they got to spare for anything . more than defense of their own home power base? "True enough, the Viet Cong is giving the United States trouble now that the monsoons . are turning South Viet Nam to gumbo. But there were no rains to protect Ben Bella in ; Algiers. The new Algerian dictator. Colonel Boumedieene, may be no great friend of the west, but he's booted out the Afro-Asian summiteers, lie's thrown a monkey wrench into the commie youth festival which was to have „ been held in Algiers at the end of July and ; he's indicated that he doesn't want to see his ; country run for the benefit of either Russia or ! China. This must seem downright ungrate- l[ ful to Brezhnev and Kosygin; after all, Rus | iia-once committed a lot of money to build a jsteel plant in Algiers. As for the Red Chi- I riese, they have counted on the Algerian Afro- Asian summit meeting to bring most ot Africa into their orbit. But now the Chinese find the prime minister of little Malawi denouncing them for trying to corrupt the Africans . "Skipping to the Caribbean, the Communists thought they had the Dominican Republic in their pockets. But Lyndon surprised them with those 21,000 marines. Think of the shock that Miis must have caused in the Kremlin And think of what this must have done to shake the plans of Fidel Castro Incidentally. Fidel .suddenly seems frightened of his own shadow. His revolution is now devouring its own children: Che Cuevera has disappeared. K'del has has to replace his economic planners, and he's had lo sell off Cuba's cattle. Presumably to pay for his -vardrobe of bulletproof vests. "In the Dominican Republic the bid of the so-called 'rebels' to take over the government in the name of Bosch and 'constitutionalism' has misfired because the OAS pacification force happens to be led by Brazilians, who have had enough of 'leftists' who plav with Communists. It now looks as though there would be a long period of OAS occupation with an election deferred until such time as the Com'mmunist question has been settled. Really, you Americans have had more luck than you are to recognize. "Finally there's the Congo. Moise Tshombc seems to have stabilized things there for the mmoment. Arms aren't flowing to Cong/lese Communists any more from Algeria and Egvpt Lyndon seems to have twisted Nasser's arm most effectively. "If you want to know the score abotii the failure of Commmunist aid to the so-called 'colonial' world, why don't, you read Victor Lasky's new book, 'the Ugly Russian?' Your 'liberal' reviewers has'e done this book dirt. Bui you can't argue with its facts: Soviet foreign aid has been no more effective than U.S. foreign aid. Vic Lasky is a first-rate reporter. And the stories he has to tell! "I don't suppose I can convince your liberals that LBJ's foreign policy is a tremendous success. After all, you can't argue with people wh" just won't give up wearing hair shirts." 'So Why Don't You Fellows Talk This Over?"

Dispatches fro m Monaco, where Princess Grace j and Prince Rainier run a profitable gambling hell, report the activities of tads ' with names straight out of Dubuque o r Busted Beak, Texas. These children go about their royal duties with handles like Caroline. Albert and Stephanie, \yhlch Just goes to show the decline of the divine right dodge. It seems, too, that it is all Princess Grace's fault, because Rainier wanted his kids to bear jazzier names. CLASSIC NAMES SPURNED When the boy was born, for example, Rainier desired that his monicker be selected from among a list culled from the Grimaldi family tree. But Grace turned thumbs down o n Hercule, Augustin, Honore and Hippolyte, possibly on the grounds they would be t oo tough for the Philadelphia Kellys to pronounce. Now it is all very well"to be old hat, but Princess Gr a c e seems to have forgotten that her husband has a duty to royalty. A man named Rainier Grimaldi shouldn't be forced to go around having kids named Jack Grimaldi or Spike Grimaldi or even Albert Grimaldi. What i s needed is something fancy, to I go with the palace and those uniforms and that foreign language they speak. A PROTECTIVE NAME — I don't know how Grace would bear to discard Hippolyte. The name Hippolyte G r I m a Id i sounds like Monte Carlo. You meet a guy named Hippolyte at a cocktail party and you know right off he must be a prince because common people do n ' t have to put up with such names. The only exception to this rule that can be recalled was a bootlegger in Utica, N. Y., who called himself Hippolyte —for reasons of personal safety. This amiable lawbreaker desired anonymity because he had been associated with a small hijacking firm in Buffalo, and he felt his legal first name, Pete, was incriminating. So it came out Hippolyte Frascati, which gave Pete a feeling of security. "No cop," said Pete, "would ever by rude to a Joker named Hippolyte." ft ft * HOPE FOR THE NEXT — Grace's son, of course, would not need any such protection ir o m the gendarmerie unless he were caught tampering with the underside of one of Pa's roulette wheels. But a name like Hippolyte would tend to fend off strangers on trains and airplanes. Nobody cares to pursue a conversation about dames or horse racing with a citizen who lets it be known his first name is Hippolyte. It is a name that sounds too classy for such talk. So it is to be hoped that If Grace has another son 'she will relent and a good, old- fashioned Grimaldi name. Even Augustin Hippoiyte, perhaps After all, it's a kind of royal tradition and a girl who's In the books as Her Serene Hlghn ess should conform. Besides, as a n Irish lass, Grace shouldn't b e too snooty about funny names. The Irish tag their kids with monickers like Sean and Siobhan, which come out Shawn and Shivawn.

In the current Washington climate, overcast as it is with criticisms of President Johnson, it seems necessary to state that this kind of Kennedy activity will not represent a direct politic a 1 assault upon the President. ' If he keeps his health, runs and the proposed law which require an initial payment for hospitalization before the government's benefits will apply. Also it is argued that persons will not be admitted who do not need such care. But the time and attention of doctors will be requi red anyhow, and the biggest hardship may emerge from the failure to train additional physicians. ^ ^t O There were 149 doctors for every 100,000 population in 1950 thp ine Creased Since hoc ,* hasn't then.

What they are building, more or less inevitably as they chart their own careers, is not so much an opposition as a sort of separatist movement looking to the future. They are the conscious bearers of the Kennedy heritage, one of the most striking politic a 1 phenomena of the century. It is a thing •compounded of youth, idealism,,the" practice of the vigorous life and an aggress i v e "new politics." it 6 it Upholding the tradition can mean striking a distinct legislative posture one day, and shooting the rapids in a kayak the next. The important point, from their supporters' view, is to keep the heritage alive and growing— as a magnet for like-min d e d young politicians like Senat o r s of Maryland and Bayh of Indiana, and millions of young voters. However great it might grow, no political realist thinks the phenomenon of the Kenn e d y mystique would seriously hurt Lyndon Johnson. But it can greatly affect the presiden t i a 1 hopes of Vice President Hub e r t Humphrey. More than a few influential Democrats think Humphrey will be peculiarly restricted in pursuing his ambitions over the the President's continued good health and success. As a necessary spokesman for the Johnson policies, his old liberal fires are banked. Realistic liberals recognize his handicaps, but one suggests he can hardly benefit from seven years of "unnatural" conservative behavior as a White House mouthpiece. Since he is not at the core of power, his off-setting gains could be limited. Humphrey, of course, is not the idle type. Taking^ in a Minnesota-Boston baseball game the other night, he hit both teams' dugouts and got on local radio and television. The pursuit of politics itself is his way of practicing the vigorous life. Nevertheless, it cannot be overlooked that by 1972—at a 11 m e when half the U. S. population will be 25 years of age or less —Humphrey will toe 61 while •V : . • the Kennedys will be in their 40s. By then, it may not be enough to have been an old liberal, a dutiful vice president, or a man who gets himself photograph e d sitting uncomfortably on the President's horse.
