Tuesday Afternoon, November 22,1955 v OUR COUNTRY The union of hearts, the union ot hands and the Flag of our Union forever.—Motris. U.S. In Earnest FEARS; WERE VOICED for a lime that the Egyptian-Israeli dispute would explode into war while the United States and the West stood idly by. The situation is still full of peril, but it should be clear that this country is not watching it indifferently. For the second time in-recent days, President Eisenhower has asserted America's willingness to guarantee peace in the Near. East through formal treaties •with Israel and its Arab neighbors. The United States wants, however, to have the nations involved settle their border and refugee controveries before such treaties Should be drawn. THIS GOVERNMENT also has sternly warned the quarreling parties that if one. of them moves aggressively against the, other the United States will throw, its weight to the side of the victim.;,. -We have said top that we will listen to requests for arms for legitimate ;: self-defense^ in that area, though we .will not contribute to an arms race. Put together ail these declarations and you get a pattern which ought to make a reasonably forceful impact on the clashing nations of the Near East.. They know we'.-will aid neither side to make aggressive war. They know we will help the side whose soil is violated by any large-scale action. That ought to prove something of a deterrent to inflammatory nationalists. , ,. ON THE OTHER HAND, both Arab and • Israeli ; leaders have our assurance that we are willing to support the status quo in the Near East once they, get their borders more sharply fixed. Such a guarantee offers a promise of stability that any statesman in the region should welcome. As the United States sees the Situation, there plainly is no .place for ..any; war of revenge that would seek to wipe out Israel as an interloper in the 'Arab world. Nor is there room for Israel to respond to Arab pressure by trying to bite off fresh chunks of Egyptian or any other foreign soil... The United State sseeks to bring its influence to produce peace and* order in a long troubled situation. Let us hope that the calm heads among the disputants recognize that we are in dead earnest in our determination to' r prevent a dangerous conflict in the Near East. Ludicrous Luggage ONE OF THE MOST mystifying events of the last days of the Geneva conference was Foreign Minister Molotov's comment on return from an interim trip to Moscow that he was.bringing "better baggage" back with him. Since on his first foray to Geneva in late October his . suitcases seemed mainly packed with old empty vodka bottles, it was fervently hoped this comment meant he had some hew. proposals that really might form the basis for an East-West settlement. Molotoy's idea of better baggage turned out to 'be rather comic,.or tragic,, depending oh the viewpoint. His fresh proposals were if anything 'worse than : the earlier ones. They resembled nothing so much as the famed Bolshevik bomb. If the Geneva, airport officials had had their wits about them, they'd.have heard it ticking and have doused 'Mqlotov's "better baggage" in water before he even could deposit it in the "conference hall. • ; • . * Libraries In Neglect THE $100,000,000 spent annually on comic books in this nation is four times as much as the annual budget of all public libraries, according to Mrs. George R. Wallace, retiring president 'of the Massachusetts Library Trustee Association. The minimum standard established by the American Library Association calls for expenditures equal to $1.50 per capita. Yet 94 per cent of the public libraries in Massachusetts spend less than that amount.- Similar situations prevail thor- oughout the nation. Cities and towns are unwilling to budget $1.50 for each member of their population. Libraries, consequently, are requesting federal assistance. Opposition to the principle of federal aid has brought no local support of libraries. Communities .have failed so dismally to meet they; responsibilities that if libraries are to : survive publjc indiffe'rence, they must have assistance. The need for libraries cannot be minimized. ,They>are centers of information and culture for their communities. School'children use them for additional reading material. Adults broaden their intests and backgrounds through them. Comic books are four tintfis as popular as libraries today. Though people arc disturbed by the effects of comic books on the young, they neglect to maintain and build up sources for better reading. Results of this neglect ire fir-teaching. CLASSIC THE LAST BERMUDA GOLF BALL - Whitney Bolton Looking Sideways NEW YORK — This woman is brilliant. Her mind works like bright and shiny knives, slicing into whatever problem confronts her. She is a woman of vast success in a material world, a woman of beauty in a profession crammed with beautiful, women. She has children and loves them. She is married and happy. But for some time she has been restless. It showed in her private life. There were hints of it, -but only hints, in her work. She is an actress of star stature, known both to films and the theatre. When she appears in a play, the line-forms weeks ahead. The ticket buyers don't wait to see whether the critics call it a good or bad playV They buy their .tickets often while she is still in rehearsal. It is a sign of her success. She probably could stand in a theatre and whittle pine sticks and still sell tickets for the performance. James Marloiv AdlaiV Speech Called Moderate But Vague WASHINGTON - Adlai Stevenson himself, without saying so, put • his finger on the No. "1 problem facing the Democrats in trying to. persuade the voters to' throw the 'Republicans out in 1956. "America" he said in a speech recently, "is well : and strorig above all nations in all 'times. We v are the luckiest people in the worldandwejcnow.it." . ', it-was pretty much along:the lines'on which the Democrats al: ready have indicated. they will attack the Republicans.,: ; It was just enough of ah outline • to .show there are no fundamental differences between the two parties and that the differences which do exist are matters of degree : more than of kind. IF THAT'S the case, the-voters might ask, why should they take a chance on 'changing admiriistra- ; Sons in next November's election? ' „ Stevenson's reasons seemed to add up to this: "We can do everything better." ' " ' He was very vague on how. That can't be held against him at this time. This was his first speech after announcing he wanted to.be president. It was just a general outline of what he'll say later. IT WAS ALSO pretty much the outline of what the Democratic party : will be saying. There were 'no surprises.' ' ' STEVENSON attacked the Eisenhower; 'administration's farm program. On this subject he seems ..unusually hazy and, i£ he has a. .solution, he "has kept it to himself. He was critical of the administration's foreign policy but did not indicate specifically what was wrong-with It except to complain there was;.too much tough talk and backing away from it.. ' And—there was no surprise about this—he accused the. Republicans • of being the party of "special interest," meaning it was tod cozy toward big business. This-has been a steady complaint of the Democrats for generations.': '•-'-.- seemed to be complaining — that :_this country is^ not giving enough ; : foreign aid to 'nations outside the Communist bloc. If he pursues this line he may suffer some embarrassment in • 1956 because it is almost certain his own Democrats will try to ram through a tax cut in the election year.. • ' r , • • " Cutting taxes means cutting revenues It is hard to see how the Democrats could logically call for a boost in foreign aid if the govern-- r ment has less tax money to spend on it-.' 1 - . . STEVENSON complained — or . STEVENSON took pains to describe his views as "moderate," although anyone who listened to him in the 1952 campaign must already have reached that conclusion about him anyway. ^ . ' Since President Eisenhower is considered a moderate, and is popular in that role, Stevenson could hardly make himself unpopular following the same line, which also happens to be his natural one anyway. (Associated Press) Peter Edson Seek Means To Decrease Farm Surplus WASHINGTON-(NE.A)~A drive, to sweep the U. S. government's storage warehouses clean of its 'seven-billion-dollar holdings in surplus farm products is heading for the next Congress. ' The. idea behind, this proposal is that these surpluses now overhang the market and depress current farm prices.. What's considered even worse, the huge surpluses make high price support levels unpopular. If the surpluses could be liquidated, it is argued that scarcities would be created and r prices would go up. Then, at high support levels, farmers -could begin unlimited overproduction and start building up 'another surplus. That's the vicious circle surrounding this surplus liquidation proposal.. The Senate Agriculture Committee under Chairman Allen J. Ellender now .touring the country, has actually .heard,proposals that the surpluses be dumped in the ocean. This shocking suggestion came from former Utah state Sen. Hyrum : Gibbons and from Idaho cattleman Ivan-Pierce. • • • . NO POLITICAL leader has yet 'dared'go'that far. What they fear is another reaction like former Secretary of Agriculture Henry A. Wallace got from his depression relief plan for killing off the surplus pigs to raise hog prices. The actual destruction of food and fiber when there are millions of underfed and poorly clothed people in the world would cause great revulsion. It would let Communist propagandists point out how the selfish capitalists destroyed food and let people starve, just to keep prices high. : What has to be found, as both. Secretary of Agriculture Ezra Taft Benson and his predecessor. Sen. Clinton Anderson point out, is some way to market these surpluses. They c^ji't be given .away indiscriminately without breaking farm markets over the world. Even the sale at cut prices can ruin foreign, farmers. AGRICULTURAL Trade- Devel- opment Act of 1953, intended.to deal with this problem, hasn't been adequate. It provided for sale of surpluses for foreign currencies, barter, giveaway* for disaster relief, school lunch programs and the like. About 1.5 billion dollars of these surpluses have been disposed of in the last two years. But 7.4 billion dollars worth of surpluses remain —5.8 billion dollars owned outright Nobel Prize THROUGH the years the Nobel prize for literature has enlarged • our mental horizons by calling ..attention to writers of whom we had never previously heard. When we read their books, our pleasure is increased. So little of European literature is published in America and so little attention is paid it that the award, when it goes to a writer from an-. other country, brings the merit of foreign writers and foreign writing into focus for us... ' .The .latest award is to an Icelandic novelist, Halldor Kiljan Laxness. The only one of his books to reach an American audience is "Independent People," an account of Icelandic life, distributed by an American book club ip 1946. He was strongly backed for the award in 1953, when it went to Sir Winston Churchill, and again in 1954, when the recipient was our own novelist, Ernest Hemingway. Since 1901 when the Nobel prize ' was established, it has brought into prominence Scandinavian, Swiss and other European authors who are scarcely known in this country. Some were exceptions, such .as. Rudyard Kipling, George Bernard Shaw, Thomas Mann and Bertrand Russell. American recipients have been Sinclair Lewis, Eugene O'Neill, Pearl Buck.- William Faulkner and Ernest Hemingway. By the conditions of the gift, all recipients must .write books -with idealism an important feature. Taken as a whole, they make a distinguished group of authors and a fine selection of reading. and 1.6 billion dollars held by Commodity Credit .Corporation as security against crop loan advances to farmers. The surplus consists of 2.7 billion dollars worth of wheat, 1.6 billion dollars worth of cotton a'nd. its products, 1.4 billion dollars corn, 500 million dollars tobacco, 384 million.dollars rice and small feed, grains,'326 million dollars dairy products, 99 million dollars wool and 250 million dollars other products like honey and. tung oil. • How'much the U. S. taxpayer' would stand to lose if these were dumped is uncertain. If the United States had to pay transportation charges for moving : ,the surpluses to the bottom of the ocean, ;the loss would be more than seven billion. •SO FAR, products which cost CCC 469 million dollars have been sold at world .market prices,,for 364 million dollars. The loss, 105 million dollars or 22 per cent. If the U. S. seyen-billion-dollar surplus could be 1 disposed of at that •discount; the-loss would be around .1.5 billion dollars. • : Fr.om the politician's standpoint, this would be a cheap price to pay for farm vote support next election day. • ' . The rationalization" for getting rid of U. S. surpluses'at cut prices is that this is whafewas done with surplus arms, ammunition and defense plants at the end of the war. "If it's all right to sell guns at 10 cents on the dollar, why isn't it also all right'.to do it with butter?" ask farm lobbyists. This is said to be the price which the public ,, must pay to get abundant production and to keep agriculture prosperous and happy.

This time one of her books was open and she held it resting on the guard fence. She would look at the elephant and then glance at the book. You cannot walk up to such a woman and use the opportunity to learn her secret. .So-I stood and watched a lynx with one eye. The other eye watched he? until; at last, she closed the book, put it under one arm and moved on into the monkey house. I followed her. In time I caught up. "You like animals, too?" she said.

"I am going to do one more "play and that-is the end of that. I. am going to get a job in a zoo. I've been studying. "• She glanced quickly at the books under her arm.'

It felt like a story that was a confession. And when there is no crime involved confessions are for private ears. , . It is no crime to quit the theatre and no crime to work in a zoo.

Frederick Othman . \ Ad-Men Are Word Inventors WASHINGTON — Having spent an hour gazing at the beautiful pictures and reading the lush and gorgeous prose, .1 have reached the conclusion that the greatest inventors of our time are the automobile advertising writers. The 1956 models couldn't be more beautiful, more powerful, or more comfortable, but. those ad writers have stuck in a few new inventions I am too stupid, to understand. For instance: . What is the difference , between star-fir'e styling and speed-line styling? Is there any similarity between- sweep - ahead styling and aerodynamic styling and. if so, where does motoramic styling fit in? Does'flight sweep have-anything to do with these items? Or flo- tone? THE ENGINES of the new motorcars must be downright stupendous. One of them has 90-90 turbo- torque power and also top thrust at take-off. This- year hardly any of the cars merely start; they take off in various ways. One brand this year has new V-8 power peaks and I'd surely like to have a look at one of them; all shiny;'I'll bet, and precision engineered. 1 Another has a strato- streak engine, one offers a jetfire V-8 engine and a particularly lordly model has '310 horsepower under its soundproof hood. . The safety surge V-8 sounds good and so does the highway Hi- Fi. This latter turns out to be no' motor, but a phonograph that spins records en route. THE CAR WITH dynamite action I hope to try and I trust it isn't as noisy as I'm inclined,to imagine. This same -sedan also features flaired fender openings. I gather from the pictures that this means the holes where the wheels go are bigger than they used to be. About time. too. I've never considered wheels indecent.. , Everything about one car is potent. It not only has power style, but it also includes power-flite, power-pilot and power-smooth brakes. The flo-toned one with the safety surge is safety-engineered and it has a full-swivel safety rear, view mirror. STILL ANOTHER brand must be equally as safe. It has safety- aim headlights, safety - power steering and. safety-ride rims, plus deep oil cushioned luxury. This latter, I think, has something to do with the shock absorbers. New front end geometry figures in the ads and I'm sorry I never got past algebra in high school! I have no •• idea what geometry has to do with the front of a motorcar. If this model has safety-aim' headlights, another has safety-vu lamps and the choice between them is a hard one. • .. • .'' High line fenders sound good. So 'do miracle fabrics, gun-sight tail lamps, and:torsion-level rides. . That ^brings us finally to the . delights of the filter-fib.- ,'.. ; ..Correction:" In my excitenie'nt I've been reading too f a s t. A second look indicates that the fil- ter-flo fits on no sedan, but on a 1956'model washing machine. This proves that the advertising men.are at work in various;fields of endeavor and'I hope they'never give up the good fight. The way they invent new- words sholoXbe ah. inspiration to everyone, with the" possible exception of dictionary publishers. , : .(United Feature Syndicate, Inc.) Black Hand THE UNITED STATES has its gangsters, and Southern Italy its Mafia, whose American branch has long been familiar as -the "Black Hand." In the "United States it operates chiefly against its fellow-Italians, who, in the old country, have often seen too much of the operations of the police to'trust them here. On this account often they do not apply for protection when threatened. The Mafia, : long entrenched in .Southern Italy and Sicily, was -attacked by Mussolini but not uprooted. The .present Italian government is making another effort, concentrated in.Reggio di Salabria; the mainland headquarters of the gang. In the last two months many members have been sent to jail or banished to. the.island of Ustica. The Mafia is like an American political machine in one respect. Neither could thrive without .the secret acquiescence or support of respected citizns. Some aid the Mafia through fear, some gain financial advantages. When it started nearly 150 years ago it had some excuse,for.being/ in the tyrannical and corrupt character of the government.- It has long since lost any respectability, and is merely a body of racketeers. Our own cities have had enough' trouble in rooting out such gangs ' that' it 'can appreciate what the Italian government is up against.
