MONDAY, JUNE, 15, 1953 BLYTHEVH LB (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE SEVEN IkeSpeaksOutAgainsfBookBurners' suppression as Weapon [gainst Reds WASHINGTON (AP) — President Eisenhower, speak- out against "the book Burners," declared yesterday fiat Americans must fight [communism "with something Better, not try to conceal the [thinking of our own people." Elsenhower named no names, : his statement recalled the demand by Sen. McCarthy (R-Wis), ceded to by the State Department, that the government withdraw from its overseas libraries pooks by authors who are known pommunists or fellow travelers. The President said even those pvith whose views we disagree have i right to have their views on rec- |ord in public places—"or it is not America." "Don't join the book burners," told the graduating class at 'artmouth College in Hanover, H. "Don't think you are going ) swerve something by concealing :vidence that It ever existed, don't ibs afraid to go to the library and every book, so long as that pocument does not offend our own i(>as of decency .. . "How will we defeat communism, unless we know what it is, why it has such an appeal hor men? Why are so many people swearing allegiance to it? It i almost a religion—albeit in one the nether regions. We have got fight it with something better, )t try to conceal the think of our |o\vn people." This was the first of two short .alks the President made yester- jday in the whirlwind finish to a (five-day speaking tour which took ilm into five states. He also flew serious storm damage in Michigan and Massachusetts and pledged federal aid and money toward reconstructions. Back at his desk today, the.Pres- iient's first appointment was with ;he Republican congressional lead- rs—not including Sen. Taft (B- hio). undergoing treatment in New York City for a hip ailment. From New Hampshire, the Pres- Bdent flew to Oyster Bay, N. Y., about 30 miles east of New York and dedicated the summer home of Theodore Roosevelt as a national shrine. He shared the plat[form with former President Herbert Hoover and New York's Gov. |Thomas E. Dewey. Eisenhower said there is a ten- Jlency to overdramatize the for- ner Rough Rider, and he added: "The fact is he was a wise lead- |er. He was not a swashbuckler, he was not a bull in a ohina shop.... "He was a man who understood his fellow human beings...." About 8,000 persons heard the President, in front of Sagamore Hill, the Roosevelt summer White House, at the opening of week-long ceremonies. At Dartmouth, where he received •n honorary Doctor of Laws degree, he spoke before an audience of about 10,000 spectators and 663 WINS SCHOLARSHIP — Billy Lutes, son of Mr. and Mrs. Harry Lutes of BlytheviHe, has been awarded a full-tuition scholarship for the coming school year given by the Fowlston School of Music here.

"Unless each day can be looked back upon by an individual as one in which he has had some fun, some joy, some real satisfaction, that day is a loss," the President said. "It is un-Christian and wicked, in my opinion, to allow such a thing to occur." Declaring that the nation is a long way from perfection, the President said: "We have the disgrace of racial discrimination, or we have prejudice against people because of their religion. We have crime on th§ docks. We have not had the courage if uproot these things although we know they are wiong with our standards. . . , "Now that courage is not going .0 be satisfied—your sense of sat- sfaction is not going to be satis- : ied—if you have not the courage ,o look at these things and do your >est to help correct them, because hat is the contribution you shall make tg this beloved country in our time. > "Each of us, as he passes along, should strive to add something. "It is not enough merely to say " love America, and to salute the lag and take off your hat as it goes by, or by singing the 'Star Spangled Banner 1 . Wonderful. We ove to do them, and our hearts well with pride, because those who tvent before us worked to give to us today standing here, this pride," i Then it was that he said Ameri- ;ans must work to understand com- j munism, so that they can corn-, bat it, and not seek to "conceal By RICHARD KLEINER NEA Staff Correspondent NEW YORK — (NEA) — Tom Murray Is worried. He's a co-creator of those vile little gems called "There's a New Sound" and "Fish'" on the bilious green label of Horrible Records. He's worried because people are buying the nauseating things. "The whole business was an experiment," says Murray. "The disc jockeys were the laboratory. We wanted to see if we could make something so revolting that it would show up all this new-sound nonsense. "But what happened? People like it. It's selling everywhere. Disc jockeys keep calling us to come on their show. We're heroes. I'm afraid, honestly afraid. What will it all lead to?" What Indeed. Murray and his coconspirator, Tony Borello. went out of their way to produce the world's worst record. They got the weirdest, most unpleasant, sounds. On the -"Pish" side, they made four takes, then scientifically spliced together the worst parts of each. When it sounded too good, they went out and recorded some surface noise on top to make it worse. Ani new people are clamoring to buy these musical miscarriages. Murray and Borello, both serious pop musicians, are afraid they'll be typed as the Horrible Boys. They're giving serious thought to changing their names to escape the stagnant stigma of stenchy stanzas. Murray, though, seems slightly torn. As an advertising executive, he smells the possibility of large money to be made in producing more Horrible records, perhaps even Horrible other things. That's balanced, though, by the awful thought of being forever identified as Mr. Horrible. So .he thinks he'll retire from being Horrible, after a last lling of making one Horrible Masterworks edition. That should be delightfully loathsome. » • • THE POPULAR SIDE: And then (he two bop musicians met Einstein, scraping away on his violin, ::Man," said the talkative one, "dig that square root." . . .

At least, we hear that a TV producer has obtained «n option on the dog star, Las- gie, who will be featured in a filmed television series. The panel quiz show has long been a favorite video type, partly because it takes advantage of the medium's intimate quality. And America'?, most popular TV show of the quiz variety is ."What's My Line." It's interesting also to note that the most popular TV show in Great Britain is the British version of "What's My Line"! i It used to be that only movies sent out crews to film location material around the country and the world . .. but today video is in the act. We note that the "Ramar of the Jungle" video series, which stars Jon Hall, is shooting jilm down in Florida.
