Shanks, national chairman of United Community Campaigns of America, and president of the Prudential Insurance Co., cited the record figure in a yearend statement. The previous giving record was 412 million dollars last year. Shanks said more than 72,250,000 people would be aided by the money raised, which will go to support 27,500 national, state and local health, welfare and recreational services. Approximately 65 per cent of the total came from individuals and HANGOVERS FOR '59 ON HAND TO CHEER THEIR TEAM TO VICTORY — Part of the contingent of University of Iowa sudents arriving at Los Angeles Union Station Sunday wave banners for the benefit of the . photographer.

(AP Photofax) J958 Only a Minor Interlude Between Past and Future WASHINGTON (AP) - Troubled but indecisive 1958 has left some big hangovers for 1959, here and abroad.

All factors made him decide the j In a preface to his answer, the i Southern resistance to , public There will, of course, be more talks next year. This Was the biggest recession year since the war, with as many as 5,200,000 unemployed. By year's end the United States had bounced back. But millions are still jobless and living costs, though steady in recent months, threaten to resunte their rise. Good for Jobs Next year looks good for jobs and business. But no economist is brave enough, or stupid enough, to predict there won't be more recessions, and perhaps worse ones. In November, the voters showed overwhelming-lack of faith in the Republican party. Yet President Eisenhower, whose faltering leadership has failed to give his party a sense of newness or direction, remains highly popular. He himself seems more conservative as he grows older. In his early White House years he talked brightly of cutting government spending. And did. But this year spending hit a peacetime high, and may go even higher next year although Eisenhower still talks of balancing the budget. Southern Resistance All through 1958 the bitter, tense ity and its destination. The Russians, with their Sputniks of 1957, were ahead in the space age. Americana asked themselves: Can we catch up? What's happened to us? By year's end the United States had lifted into orbit first some tiny satellites and then the huge Atlas. It also sent two atomic- powered submarines under the North Pole. Contest Just Beginning Those were boosts to sagging morale. But the contest between the United States and the Soviet Union for superiority on the earth and the space above it is just beginning. Omihous equally for the United States and the Soviet Union was the breakneck dash of Red 'China to catch up with the 20th century, with its 600 million people reduced to machines and the population growing. The brief crisis over the shelling of Quemoy by Red China was small potatoes compared with what this country faces in 1959 and later from the Chinese Communists.

I have never made any protest or any sort of thing against misunderstandings, for I believe that the truth i would prove by itself in the long j run of history.
