FOUI IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE, I RON WOOD, MICHIGAN tUESDAY, JUNE 8, IMS. IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE "Th« DoHy Globe it on Independent newtpoper, tupporting what ft belMve* to be right and opposing what it believes to be wrong, regardless of party politics, and publishing the news fairly and impartially." -linwood I. Noyes, Editor and Publishe. 1927-1964. Mrs. linwood I. Noyes, President Edwin J. Johnson, Editor and Publisher De Gaulle on the Hustings Tlie worst kept political secret since Franklin D Roosevelt's refusal to divulge his plans for a third Presidential term should be nired officially later this month. Charles dc Gaulle is expected to announce, to the delight of most of his countrymen and the astonishment ol none that he will accept a second scven-vear term as President of France. This official dropping of the other shoe is H( least 21 months overdue. On one of his technically non-political provincial tours in September 1963—this one of southern France and the Rhone Valley—DeGaulle told a somewhat disappointing crowd at Orange: "The essential thing for Gen. de Gaulle, President of the Republic, is what is useful for the French people, what the French people want. 1 reel I have been able to discern this for a quarter of a century. I am resolved since I still have the strength to continue to do this." What "doing this" meant has never been much in doubt. Prior to the President's radio- television broadcast of last April 27, Premier Georges Pompidou had told certain parliamentarians that "we can hope, think, and believe" that the General would be a candidate in December. The expected signal was withheld, however; the speech was little more than a catechism of Gaullist foreign policy. However, during his provincial tour in May—his 22nd and presumably his penultimate political swing since taking office seven vears ago — DeGaulle reiterated everywhere the key word, "continuity-." When he visits the pro" vinces closest Paris this month he is expected at last to give the word. De Gaulle is frequently pictured engulfed by crowds, shaking hands with his people with no regard for his personal safety. It is no slur on the General's unshakable courage to report that the securitv for these speaking trips is total. Waverly Root, a veteran of these processionals, suggests that as many as 5000 men, police and special agents of all sorts, in addition to the President's own formidable body guard, are mobilized for protection. Roads leading into the Presidential route are sealed off. All suspected persons are removed from the line of inarch. Windows, bridges, even monuments are checked. A recurring trauma for this writer brings back a bewildering series of encounters with emergency police in .trying to leave Lyon when De Gaulle was still 50 kilometres away from the city. De Gaulle stands these trips better than his much younger guards, as his 20,000-mile Latin American tour last September might have indicated. He speaks frequently from memory; his company carries no speech ghosts. DeGaulle observes his 75th birthday anniversary on Nov. 22. He is fit for his age. , The French president is now reported to have deposited with associates (he reallv has no intimates) one recorded and three written copies of his political last will, so to speak, and testament. His political heir is supposed to be Premier Pompidou. But the constitution of the Fifth Republic puts the President of the Senate first in line of succession. Actually there is today no real provision for a dauphin, and few believe that a«v successor now on the scene could hold together the inchoate Gaullist mass. De Gaulle "views himself as "the only holder of state authority," He may just decide to go on and on that way. Westminster Abbey If Britons relish their history more than most peoples, it may be because they have so much of it. The world will be reminded of that fact in the coming weeks as Britain observes several major anniversaries. On Monday, June 14, the 900th anniversary of the founding of Westminster Abbey will be celebrated. The next day brings an observance of the 700th birthday of Parliament. (The actual date was in January 1265, but the commemoration was postponed in respect for the funeral ol Winston Churchill.) The 750th anniversary of the signing of the Magna Carta will be'for- mally observed the same day. Finally, Friday, June 18, marks the 150th'annivcrsaiy of the Battle of Waterloo. Westminster Abbe)'—formally the Abbcv of St. Peter—is tthe most widely celebrated church in the British Commonwealth, arid with good reason. Legend relates the coining of St. Peter himself,to hallow the first church built on its site. In 1050 Edward the Confessor took up the erection of a new church, and building and rebuilding has gone on ever since. From William the Conqueror onward every sovereign except Edward V has been crowned at Westminister. The north transept contains many monuments to statesmen, and the abbey is crowded with tombs and memorials of famous British subjects. During World War II the abbey was seriously damaged by bombs where the transept crosses the nave, and many of the surrounding buildings were burned out. Macauley caught the significance of Westminster Abbey when he described it as "that temple of silence and reconciliation where the enmities of 20 generations lie buried." Young baseball fan who tried to catch a high foul came home and said "Look, Ma — no teeth." The drunken driver who ended up in the hospital alibied he had only stopped in for a few shots and a blear. The man who says he enjoys weeding the garden will lie about other things, too. Comedy in Academe (Copyright 1965, King reatures Syndicate. Ine.l By lohn Chamberlain Just how does a great university go about picking its professors. The appointment of Dr. Conor Cruise O'Brien to the Albert Schweitzer chair in the humanities at New York University offers a case study of cross-purposes complicated by blundering that makes one wonder all over again about the value of a college education. Until recently, O'Brien worked for ,the totalitarian boss mail Nkrumah's University of Ghana and, before that, was head of the United Nations operation against Moise Tshombe .in Katanga. Universities are supposed to choose scholars for teaching posts. But Conor Cruise O'Brien is, on the face of things, a most unscholarly man. Some six months ago he wrote an extensive review of a posthumous book by Whitaker Chambers, "Cold Friday," for a literary publication, The New York Review of Books, that was almost the opposite of everything that a scholarly literary critique should be. In the first place, it ignored the contents of a most beautiful piece of writing to concentrate on one small error of fact about a point of Russian grammar that Chambers, since he had died, never had a chance to correct. In the second place, the "review", so-called, was mainly devoted to the proposition that Whittaker Chambers was a "veteran liar." (The review was titled "The Perjured Saint.") O'Brian, a Dubliner, couldn't have known much about Chambers except by hearsay, the hearsay being provided by partisans of Alger Hiss, who happens himself to have been convicted in court and sentenced to jail for perjury on evidence that came as a result of Chambers's testimony. The odd thing about the appointment ol O'Brien to the New York University faculty is that it came after a great friend of Whir- taker Chambers, Arthur Koestler, had turned the job down. Koestler, the author of "Darkness at Noon," a work of great power that exposed the Communists as cynical and barbarous frauds when it comes to honoring the human spirit, thought highly of Chamber*!; veracity. He would have brought to New York University a quality of mind that is conspicuously absent from the Conor Cruise O'Brien approach to literature. O'Brien, as a matter of fact, was a third Choice for the Albert Schweitzer chair. Ahead of him on the list of prospective appointees was Northrup Frye, of the Canadian University of Toronto, a respected literary critic. The fact that O'Brien has been named Albert Schweitzer professor at New York University has still another irony connected with it. For Schweitzer, tlie great humanitarian medical man of tropical Africa, was one who deplored the crusade of the United nations to drive the able Moise Tshombe out of Katanga. When O'Brien was chosen by the UN to give Tshombe the heave-ho, he took the job with alacrity. The West has since changed its mind about Tshombe to the extent of accepting him as the leader of the entire Congo. Katanga included. Thus Schweitzer's judgment has been vindicated, but the man who did his best to inflict a defeat on Tshombe will be sitting in a chair that bears Schweit zer's name. It's all a most curious comedy. Professor Ernest Van De Haag, who teaches at New York University, finds its exceedingly strange that his colleagues should pick a man who served the totalitarian boss of Ghana, the "Redeemer" Nkrumah, for the Albert Schweitzer professorship in the humanities.' True, O'Brien eventually resigned his Ghana job as a result of "disagreements about policy." "But if O'brien had been vice chancellor at the University of Madrid in Franco's Spain," says Professor Van Den Haag, "he would hardly be acceptable to American liberals. The University of Madrid is, of course, situated in n country that is a white dictatorship over whites The University of Ghana, to which Conoi Cruise O'Brien went under his own free will happens to be situated in a country that is a black dictatorship over blacks. Liberals apparently find working for the latter type of tyranny excusable." New York University has a number o( faculty members who, being firm anti-Communists, cherish the memory of Whittakei Chambers for his service in exposing the ramifications of the Communist conspiracy in America. Wonder how they will get on with Dr. Conor Cruise O'Brien, the man who ?alls Chambers a "liar" Skateboarding equipment is simple — just one skateboard and two crutches. An ad says smelling salts are fun to use. That's faint praise. Closer and Closer MWr, Today in National Affairs By DAVID LAWRENCE WASHINGTON — Presi dent Johnson has just made perhaps the best pro-Negro speech any politician has ever made. In deed, his address was shown in advance to Roy Wilkins, executive secretary of the NAACP, and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., who "were both in enthusiastic accord" with it, as disclosed in an article by Mary McGrory, staff writer for the Washington Evening Star. For. in speaking at Howard University last Friday night, the president blamed almost everything on the white population, praised the Negroes for their demonstrations, and, in effect, gave them the signal to go ahead with more of the same. Mr. Johnson spoke approvingly of revolutions throughout the world and said that on every continent men "reach for new weapons" so that they may attain freedom. He fhen applied the concept of revolution to this country, as he said: "But nothing, in any country, touches us more profoundly, and nothing is more freighted with meaning for our own destiny, than the revolution of the Negro American. ft it it "Heroically, the American Negro—acting restraint—has with impressive peacefully pro- poverty" and that the differences are not "racial differences" but that "they are solely and simply the consequence of ancient brutality, past injustice and present prejudice." He said: "Perhaps most important — its influence radiating to every part of life—is the breakdown in the Negro family structure. For this, most of all,, white America must accept responsibility. It flows from centuries of oppression and persecution of the Negro "man. It flows from the long years of degradation and discrimination which have attacked his dignity and assaulted his ability to produce for his family." The president also declared that "unemployment strikes most swiftly and broadly at the Negro" and that blighted hope brings despair which in turn produces "indifference to learn- ing." He said that despair coupled with indifference is often "the source of destructive rebellion against the fabric of society." He added: "Thirty-five years ago (1930) the rate of unemployment for Negroes and whites was about the same. Today the Negro fate is twice as high " Is this the result of the hatred and bigotry and discrimination arising in the last few years? Mr. Johnson says further that "in 1948 the 8 per cent unemployment rate for Negro teenage boys was actually less than that of whites" and that "by last year it had grown to 23 per cent, as against 13 per cent for whites unemployed." These statistics could be interpreted to mean that racial prejudices of centuries past may have been of lesser significance in employment practices in America prior to 1930 and only now are beginning to interfere with "freedom of opportunity." It's a strange paradox—a seeming contradiction of the main thesis of the president's speech. The Doctor Says By W. G. BEANDSTADT, M.D. Q — About a year ago I was in the hospital. The doctor told me I had three kidneys. When I .tell this to some people they say that's impossible. What do you say? A — Although I can find references to persons born with only one kidney I can find no reference to anyone having three, but in this world all things are possible. ..Q — I was told that I nave a horseshoe kidney. What causes this condition? Could this be the reason for my high blood pressure? .. A — Jn the early development of the embryo the two kidneys may be fused together at their upper poles. If this condition persists after birth the result is a horseshoe-shaped kidney that extends to both sides of the spinal column. There is no reason why such a kidney should not function normally or why it should cause high blood pressure. Q — What is the usual treatment for polycystic kidneys? Is a special diet of any value? A — Polycystic kidney is a congenital condition in which many cysts are present in the kidneys Such kidneys may reach two or three times the normal size There is no effective treatment or special diet for this condition. Q — What symptoms are produced by a kidney stone? A — Kidney stones have microscopic beginnings. They do not cause symptoms until they become too large to pass easily through the ureter to the bladder. If these larger stones become lodged in the ureter they tested and marched, entered the courtrooms and the seats of government, demanding a justice that has long been denied. The voice of the Negro, was the call to action. But it is a tribute to America that, once aroused, the courts and the Congress, the president and most of the people, have been the allies of progress." But Mr. Johnson didn't explain why it was necessary to arouse passions which sometimes incited violence and why debate and discussion in the public forums and the persuasive powers of free men were inadequate or ineffective to sway the courts or the Congress or the president. The president hinted that the demonstrations hadn't yet achieved all that they may in the future. He said: 'But freedom is not enough. You do not wipe away the scars of centuries by saying: Now, you are free to go where you want, do as you desire, and choose the leaders you please. You do not take a person who, for years, las been hobbled by chains and liberate him, bring him up to ihe starting line of a race and ;hen say 'you are free to compete with all the others,' and itill justly believe you have been completely fair. a a tt "Thus it is not enough to open ;he gates of opportunity. All our citizens must have the ability to walk through those gates. This s the next and the .more profound stage of the battle for civil rights. We seek not just freedom but opportunity We seek not just legal equity but human ability—not just equality as a right and a theory, but equality as a fact and equality as a result . . . "To this end equal opportunity s essential, but not enough, not enough. Men and women of all races are born with the same range of abilities. But ability Is not just the product of birth. Ability is stretched or stunted by the family you live with, and neighborhood you live in— by the school you go to, and the poverty or the richness of your surroundings. It is the product of a hundred unseen forces playing upon the infant, the and finally the man." The president went on to sayjiubwrjption,..parable ,„ advance.

How long does it last? .A — Although the menopause usually starts in the mid-40s the age of onset is subject to wide individual variations. There appears to be a tendency in our population for it to start in most women later, than was the case 100 years ago. It is characterized by a longer interval between menstrual periods until they disappear completely. This may take two or three years. Many women have no symptoms and the hot flashes with or without profuse sweating that sometimes accompany the menopause cannot be said to be a part of the change of life because they may persist for many year? after all menstruation has stopped.

And such spending Is expected to hit its fastest pace in the final months of the year. These record outlays can spread through many segments of rhe national economy, pepping up sales and production for many industries from metals to business services. This is one of the most reassuring prospects in this period 01 uncertainty in the stock markets and of economic pulse-taking in many quarters. Scaling upward of capital spending plans is reported by a survey of business intentions by the Commerce Department and the Securities & Exchange Commission. Outlays are expected to rise to $52 billion at an annual rate in the final months of 1965. This stimulant to the economy in tlie months just ahead will be welcomed by those who now are having a case of nerves. tt a- tt A corollary statistic on the current situation Is the Census Bureau's report that construction outlays are running 3 per cent ahead of the first five months of 1964. Actual expenditures so far this year have been $24.6 billion. Construction is only a part of business capital spending and it also takes in other private and government activity. Pointing to an increase in such construction spending in coming months is the awarding of contracts. This also has turned upward and is well- ahead of year ago figures. Together the capital spending intentions and the actual construction testify to general confidence in industrial and commercial circles that the future will bring increased demands for their products ana services. Construction's widespreading influence is shown in its effects on the output of other industries. This ranges from about two-thirds of total demand for heating, plumbing and structural metal products and better than 50 per cent for ston$ and clay products, to about-5 per cent for glass and glass products and paper and allied products and about 7. per cent for petroleum refining and related industries. <f 6 it In between are sizable percentages that construction outlays mean for the production of lumber and wood, mining' and quarrying, electric lighting: and wiring, iron and steel manufacturing, nonferrous metal products, paints and a 10 per cent gain for business services. The latest survey of capital spending plans shows a larger percentage expected to go into actual expansion this year than recently, and comparatively less for modernization that dominated such spending in the last three or four years. The government survey -estimates the outlays for the year at $50.4 billion, up 12.3 per cent from 1964's record. Earlier in the year the government lore- cast was for a rise of 11.8 per cent.

By BRUCE BIOSSAT WASHINGTON (NEA) —By the end of summer, some 30,000 nonprofessional people are e x - pected to be drawn from the ranks of the poor into community action programs for the War on. the poverty. Largely from these same ranks will come some 45,0 0 0 paid employes of the povert y project called Head S t a rt, a summertime crash effort aimed at helping 300,000 disadvantaged pre-school children to enter kindergarten or the first grade next fall on a relatively equal footing with their luckier neighbors. These are not routine statistics. They are a measure of the potential for social revolt contained in the war on poverty. If that revolution comes off, and there seems no reason at this stage to doubt it will, i t could ultimately dwarf all other effects of the poverty program. The participation of tens o f thousands of poor people in programs designed for their own uplift can mean the first real breaking down of invisible walls which now keep them seriously alienated and isolated from the broad mainstreams of American life. a * tt One poverty official s a ys alienation is the principal characteristic of the urban poor and isolation a mark of the rural poor. A great goal of the antipoverty effort, therefore, is to "reconnect" these millions with the society they live in but of which they are not genuinely a part. It should surprise no one that the mood of the alienated urban poor today is one of "deep distrust," as poverty officials are discovering afresh. Not only the established political and b u s i- ness leadership but the very social and welfare agencies whose existence is formally dedicated to the poor are regarded as nearly 100 per cent suspect The inclusion of representatives of the poor on community action boards anfl committees is highly publicized move toward bridging this crucial gap. But in the view of key officials the swelling flow of "nonprofessionals" into the program is the real cue to the prospect of social revolution. One official: "Six months from now these people will be the real representatives of t h e poor." « ft a As the prospect is envisioned, the poor helping themselves out of the depths of deprivation ignorance and ill health will/become a new force in society — balanced against the "establishment," often in conflict-with' it, pressing for a place as reavl contributors to the nation's life in contrast to their present role as hostile, embittered bystanders. If the transformation occurs on a substantial scale, the forecast is made that within-a few years some of these "representatives of the poor" will begin to turn up as precinct delegates in political party affairs. Their impact on organized labor could be considerable. Says one poverty fighter: 'They're going to give labor unions fits." From director Sargent Shriver on down, this outlook is understood and approved. A while back Shriver said: "We face a revolution in expectations — a radical shift in, the hopes, demands and aspira-] tions of the poor themselves. We cannot stem that tide. And we do not wish to do so." The reactions in the establish ment are something else. A considerable part of the heralded controversy over the poverty program, mostly in some of the big cities, seems to reflect r e- cognition by seasoned politicians of the immense potential it has for sweeping, unpredictable change. •it •(! it - • There is more involved,. some officials here believe, than the politicians' natural urge to -get control of a. good thing Many sense the danger to their status from an emerging new force which, if it isn't grasped by them, could one day topple them from power. Also unsettled, of course, are the established professionals — nurses, teachers, welfare and social workers. The non professionals strike them as a serious job threat. Some poverty officials are predicting, moreover, that the publicized unsettlement of u r ban power structures may appear relatively minor alongside the ferment looked for in t h e rural areas in the months just ahead. Yet there is a firm conviction , among responsible officials guiding and watching these changes that the predicted social revolution will not only go forward, but finally will be accepted "of necessity" by a 11 "establishment elements" which now feel its challenge so keenly.
