TH£ PHAROS-TRtBUNE PROGRAM FOR tOGANSPORT 1. An Operative Planning Commiision 2. An Adequate Civic C«nt«n 3. An Adequata Sewerage and Garbage Ditpotul System. 4. Sufficient Parking Facilities Safety Investment A ^reat many of our highway accidents would never happen if drivers were to realize that automobiles perform differently under different circumstances. A speed of fifty may ?mt he too fast when the roads are dry and visibility is good; in weather when the windshield becomes steamed ar.d ice is formed on iii<; road fifty miles an hour can be excessive a::'i dangerous. It is easy to be deceived in bad weather. A rr.utui-ist may proceed for miles without encountering ice and then suddenly hit a slippery- spot in the road that can cause his car to skid on i of control. Whenever the possibility exists that the roads will be slippery, extra caution is called for. A careful motorist may take more time to #et where he is going. The extra time, however, is an investment, in safely and it often proves to be the wisest investment a driver can make. er in Germany The American people must realize that Nazism in Germany is"not dead. Because of the Communist threat, it may be necessary to rearm Germany, but active measures must still he taken to prevent a Nazi revival there. Thai menace can be seen in the struggle oC a group o:' former Xazi generals for a bitter say than tnr-y have now in German affairs. They are no more reconciled to the democratic government of Konrad Adenauer ihan they were to the Weimar Republic, which they helped Hitler overthrow 20 years ago. flight now these generals, led by Gen. Kurt Student, are figlv.inu a novernment ban against war medals which have the swastika, emblem of Nazism, on them, hi response to that ban, General Student said. '"Germany's war decorations are not only a sign of appreciation for her soldiers' achievements—they are valuable souvenirs which remind us of better times.' 1 Unfortunately. Genera! Student is not alone. Ife is only one of the 500.000 members of the ultra-nationalist "Steel Helmets" group which longs for the return of better times—in this cas( a military dictatorship. The revival of such groups is behind the French fear 01 a revived Germany. France, burdened with a war in Indo-China," is alarmed at the spectacle of a Gennanv with a booming rconomy and a growing industrial potential. In order to allay the fears of France and other F.urooean countries who were victimized by Che Nazis, the United States may have to offer a firm guarantee against Gen-nan aggression. Once such a rjitarantee were made, the United Spates could press for pass-'-ue of a European armv treaty, since none of the participating nations could then plead fear of Germany as an excuse for not signing it. i-OGANSPORT *'U" B 1 f**" V<\ 1 «•* 11'ajnl THE PAST One Year Ago The first, real snow of the season in Logansporf- and (.'»>.? county today was being cleared off city stive!.- and county and state roads.

WHITE Drew Pearson Says: Russian servants in Moscow's American embassy work for secret police; Vishinsky wants increase in price of gold; jive jargon jolts U. N. formality. WASHINGTON — Life in the American embassy in Moscow is no bed of roses for our diplomatic and military per- ' sonncl stationed! there. Here's capsule picture I of some of their | problems: Prices—A des- ] ser: ice - cream cake for six people costs S10. A five-pound roast ! of beef is S15. Oranges, pear.;, K& .. >j ar.d melons are usually well above SI apiece, and even then are hard to get ... As a result of shortages and high prices, 90 per cent of the food consumed by Americans in Moscow comes out of L". S. tin cans. The embassy even drinks powdered milk to avoid Moscow's unpasteurized mi'.k and ttni'nspect- ed cows ... Russian citizens working around the embassy plead r'or small quantities of powdered milk. Russian maids employed by U. S. diplomats receive S200 per month. But a pair of Hussian-made shoes costs the maids S175. Personalities—Ambassador Cbip Bohlen is as popular with the embassy staff as he's unpopular with the Russians. "The Commies are scared to death of Chip," says o:ie embassy staff member. "He knows them so well they actually 'think r.v ran read their minds." ... One oi 1 Bohleu's chief headaches is keeping peace between the diplomatic and military personnel stationed in Moscow. There's constant friction between the two croups. The U. S. military clique complains that the diplomats "hog" everything and look down 'heir state depart men: noses at military colleagues. Diplomats counter by claiming the boys in uniform "don't have any idea what the score is." "Protection—" All the men at the embassy are under 24-hour surveillance by the Russian sci-ret police. But the embassy wives usually travel around Moscow "unattended." As a refill':, most of the women folk have a better idea xhan their husbands of what the average Russian in the street is thinking ... All Russian servants employed at the embassy work for '.lie secret police. One of the maids. Dora, has been employed at the embassy so long rhat she first me I Ambassador Bohlen when he was a lowly third secretary. Dora reports regularly to the secret police but she's kept on at the embassy because any replacement would also be required to report to ihe police ... Recently one Russian maid asked her U.S. employer for permission to leave the house for a half hour. "I'll be right back," she explained. "I just have to go down to the police station to report on you." ... The Russians have planted secret microphones in the homes of all embassy personnel. They're usually referred to as either "George" or "Junior." A visitor leaving Russia with a oonv of a Soviet encyclopedia' is always halted at the border by customs officers who seize Ihe book, tear out the three pages dc- voied to praise of Marshal Beria. then relurn it as OK to leave Soviet Russia. Vishinsky's Gold Foreign Minister Vishinsky made a speech at the United Nations last week that was crowded out by the spy stories, but was highly significant nevertheless. Vishinsky denounced the United Stales for blocking an increase in the price of gold, went on to accuse the United States of hurting Australia, Canada, and South Africa, because their economy pends 0:1 the sale of gold. Though largely ignored American press associations, speech was pounded out over Russian radio, also published in the British dominions. It was one of the cleverest speeches Vishin- sky could have made. Behind it were two motives. .1. Divide the United States from de- ny the the our best friends in the British dominions. 2. Secure ail increase in the price of gold which would be a godsend to Russia because of its surplus gold stocks. Russia wants the price tipped from S3.i to S50 an oun.-e, thereby giving the Kremlin a ciianee to increase its purchase of consumer goods abroad. This wide-scale purchase of consumer goods. including such ih.ngs as butler from Scandinavia, is cue of the most slgnificnnl developments inside Russia. It means that the Kremlin is trying to pacify the res!loss Russian people by giving them less of tt military burden and more eonsiinyjr benefits— at least temporarily. Note — Visr.msky's denunciation of the United States over the price of South African gold almost matched his denunciation of Pr'e- .mier Malau of South Africa for his suppression of South African Xe- prncs. British Bebop Selwyn Lloyd, British stale minister at (lie United Nations, is getting quite a reputalion as at: ex- pen on American bebop. And he deserves it. Newspapermen noted some time ago how, after Vlshlnsky had delivered one of his usual diatribes at. the United Nations, State Minister Lloyd rose and said: "In the language of American bebop. 'Dig thai broken record.' "H wili be interesting," added Minister Lloyd, "io see how the interpreters translate that." At a U. .\ T . reception some time later. Minister Lloyd was asked where he had learned American bebop. "I heard some G.I.s talking about Christine," he replied, "you know, that girl wiio changed hoi- sex. One OH them had a picture of her. and he said: 'Dig that convertible!' " Capital Capsules Word has leaked through the fron Curtain that the Kremlin is organizing its own world la'oor movement to compete with the international labor orgnnization. This means Ihe Communists will be waging a new drive to woo workers away from the free unions of the Demo-.-rac-ies ... Air Force Chief of Staff General ".Vale" Twining, just back from a European inspection tour, reports that ij-.is most hair-raising experience was watching an Italian air alert. When the alarm sounded. Italian jets scrambled into the air from every direction, as many as four taking off at the same lime. Miraculously, there were no crashes in the mad-dash alert ... Another warning sign has appeared on the economic horizon. Latest figures show the nation's money supply has nol been growing ihe way it should in a healthy economy. Since mid-year, the money supply has swelled only enough to take care of seasonal market demands. Bank loans have clroptjed off alarmingly. County ond Township Officials to Convene County ar.d townsmp o.'flcials of Cass county are planning to attend the annual three-day stale convention of Indiana County and Township 'Officials to be held Wednesday. Thursday and Friday. Dec. !). 10 and 11, in the Claypooi hotel, Indianapolis. In addition to the joint meeting, there will be separate meetings of the township trus'ees. the county assessors, county attorneys, county auditors, county clerks, county commissioners, highway supervisors, county recorders, infirmary superintendents, surveyors and engineers, and county treasurers. Cass county Auditor Richard Gohl is secretary-treasurer of the slale association of county- auditors. Holiday Doll Display Exhibited at Library A new doll display based on the approaching holiday theme has been exhibited at the Logansport Public Library by Helen Brar.dt. high school teacher who has been responsible for the displays for a number of years. The new display contains dolls •which depict a cross section of the nationali'ics of the people of the world. The figurines are arranged in a semi-circle in the display case in the main reading room of the library. Forming the background in the case is a wreathed world which symbolized the aura of the Christmas spirit that is supposed to permeate every nation at this time. RULES SHOOTING JUSTIFIED INDIANAPOLIS i UP) — .Mrs. Frances Sperling. 56, was justified in killing Ernest L. Poorc 24, by firing a charge of table salt from a shotgun. Coroner Boy B. Storms ruled Monday. Poore died Nov. 20 in the entrance of the home Mrs. Sperling shared with her daughter,' Mrs. Betty Morton. 28. when Mrs. Sperling shot him for trying to enter the house as Mrs. ?Iorton's suitor against her will. TOO SHORT tb DRIVE MANKATO, Minn. (UP)—Three boys, ranging in age from 10 to 14. told police they used their school books to sit on so they •would beh igh enough to see- when they drove cars they stole for joyrides. Angelo* Patri Individuality S \ f' i B " QQ SI / ifOE ?n Growing Youth v-7 Teen-agers are usually instructed by their parents to be home by a certain time when they are bound j'or a r.ight entertainment. Kadi family has Its own ideas about the hour, with the result that the youngsters who have to leave a gathering llr.st are iikely to come in for teasing from the others. The late slayer may jeer, "Mother's good child." or "iiaby nrjst have his nap," while another may say: "What can they do if you arc late?" It takes no little courage for a youngster to smile at those gibes and say, "I'm sorry, but 1 must go itonic. Tomorrow's another day and I'll have plenty to do. So long, gang." It strengthens young people if they can themselves assume responsibility for Ihis "going-honic time," instead of plac.ng it on their parents. It may save the situation I'rom being embarrassing when a boy, or a girl, announces, "I'm r.ot .staying aster W o'clock. I'm no good next day it 1 stay up loo late." When a boy escorts a girl to a party, tae time for • leaving the affair should be agreed upon ho- lorehand by both to avoid an argument later ill the presence ot friends. If they arc sensible they will slick by their agreement. It one must be home by midnight and the other has no set time, it will cause uneasiness and perhaps spoil iho whole evening. Boys and girls of an age to shoulder responsibility for themselves and for those accompany.tig them, understand the anxiety of their parents and should therefore be considerate enough to obey them. Never should they say that their parents have nothing to worry- about. Parents can't help being concerned in these days of speeding cars. Youngsters who have been dancing become overstimulat- ed and sometimes, unfortunately, indulge in alcoholic drinking, 'j r,cy become reckless in driving a car and may get into terrible accidents, bringing tragedy upon themselves and their parents. It is smart to set a leasonable "going home" time, and it is smart to refuse strong drink. It is also smart for these young people to take a stand and behave with mature consideration for themselves and for their families. Babies do not cry to be naughty. There is a reason, but as a ch.ld grows older he should grow away from the habit. Dr. Patri tells how to stop children's" tears in leaflet P^», "Crying Children."
