The Iowa Supreme Court in its decision said the father had a "Bohemian approach to finances and life in general," and tlie child would be better off in a "stable, dependable, conventional, middle class midwestem backgi-ound." The fatlior, a widower now remarried, is Harold W. Painter. In appealing, he said llie case raised important questions as to the extent of a state's power "to invade the privacy of a family and destroy a family relationship." 'Uie boy, Mai-k W. Painter is now in custody of the grandparents, Mr. and Mre. Dwight Bannister of Ames, Iowa. Mark's mother died in an automobile accident in 1962 and the Ban­ nisters, who are in their 60's have cared for the boy since July 1963. Bannister is a retired employe of Iowa State University. NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSN. Mark 's father and stepmother reside at Brookdale, Calif. I Among other things, the Iowa : Supreme Court commented that painter was "a political liberal" and was "either an agnostic or atlieist and has no concern for , formal religious training." ! Painter, a 35-year-old free ' lanoe photographer, contended courts may not base their decisions in child custody cases upon the court 's understanding of parents' political opinions and religious beliefs and expressions. The Bannisters said "it would ilje highly detrimental to the j child's emotional health to require him to be moved from his present surroundings." The Supreme Court made no comment about the case, merely noting that the father's petition was denied. At the same time the court pemiitted the filing of "friend of the court" briefs by the New Yoi-k (Annual Conference of the Methodist Church and the American Civil Liberties Union, which asked , that tlie Iowa decision be re- i viewed. .*T CORNPONE SQUARE "LI'L ABNER" THURSDAY-FRIDAY NIGHT SHOW.S—Beneath the Statue (Jesse Bee) of Jubilation T.

Viet Nam "THE WEEK OF November 14-20 has been set aside for observance of Optimist International's Youth Appreciation Week, 'The objective of this observance promoted by a majority of the •2500 clubs throughout North America is to recognize and applaud the overwhelming majority of our teenagers v^'ho believe in and ; practice decency, not delinquency. This Optimist program's approach might Ije likened to La Fontaine's fable of the "North Wind and the Sun." One day, the north wind and the sun were engaged in a discussion of which was more powerful. Each one, unable to convince the other, finally agreed upon a test of their force. Noting " a horseman wearing a cloak, passing by below, the North Wind .determined to exhibit its power and fury, unleashed all of its -might—but to no avail. The harder it blew, the,more tightly i the horseman wrapped his cloak ahwut him. When its turn came,. •• the sun with gentleness brightly shown warming the earth below, ; whereupon the horseman, feeling its softh warmth, shed his cloak. We agree that in many instances the provision of kind appreciative words and deeds In guiding our youths of today will better accomplish the goals of good citizenship and decency than by use of more forceful means. Furthermore, we applaud the objectives of this excellent Optimist program and join In saluting the fine youths of our community. Won 't you?

HOFFMAN TUY HOA, South Viet Nam (AP)-This $50-million U.S. Air Force base began combat operations today 43 days ahead of schedule. Gen. Hunter Harris, commander of tJie U.S. Air Force in the Pacific, said the new base will permit quicker air strikes : in support of ground operations in the midsection of Soutli Viet Nam. , Lt. Gen. William M. Momyer, • chief of the 7tli Air Force, said Tuy Hoa will "play a role in our increased flexibility in close support of ground forces" in the 2nd and 3rd Corps areas, which have seen some of the hardest fighting in the war. Harris, Momyer and other Air Force and Vietnamese officials witnessed the landing of the first FIDO Super Sabre Jet fight- er-lx)mbers on the 8,470-foot runway. A 10,000-foot runway—capable of handling the nation's heaviest bombers—will be completed by May along with the rest of the base. Leading his squadron in was Lt. Ctol. Alan Wockerfuss of Webster, S.D. He has been in Viet Nam for seven months. Wockerfuss and the 18 planes of the 308th Tactical Fighter Squadron were fresh from strikes against the Viet Cong in a number of sectors, including the battle of Tay Ninh Province. The base still is little more than an air strip amid wide expanses of brown sand along the shore of the South China Sea, some 235 miles northeast of Saigon. The Air Force garrison and the civilian construction men live in tents or trailers. There are great piles of building materials and equipment in the area. Foundations for permanent buildings are taking shape. World News LONDON (AP) — Pi-ime Minister Borg Olivier of Malta may offer his island's dockyard facil- I ities to the U.S. 6th Fleet if cute in British militai^ spending •force the British navy to curtail ! its use of the base. Britain, which has used the Mediterranean island's facilities for the past 150 years, has warned Malta that cuts in ovei^ seas defense spending may result in a 50 per cent reduction at ' the Malta base. '[ The U.S. 6th Fleet, which pa- jtrols the Mediterranean area, I has been using ports in southern i France. FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) — Dr. Horst Schumann, a refugee in Ghana for »even years, returned today to stand trial for the wartime killing of 30,000 Jews and non-Germans. Schumann took refuge in Ghana in 1959 and worked in a clinic there until the overthrow of President Kwame Nkrumah. He was arrested by the new Ghani- an government and the West German request for his extradition was granted on Nov. 4. Schumann, now 60, is accused of participating in the Nazi mercy killing program and with conducting fatal experiments in sterilization by X rays at the Auschwitz concentration camp COLOiMBO, Ceylon (AP) Superstition and rain drove more villagers from their homes today in central Ceylon's tea-growdng Haputale district where landslides have killed at least 11 persons. As the rain continued, many villagers quit the valleys below the tea plantations. They believed an evil grouping of the planets would occur today or Thursday and bring more disaster.
