rout IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE, IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 4, 1965. IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE "Tht Daily Globe is an independent newspaper, supporting what it believes to be right and opposing what it believes to be wrong, regardless of party politics, and publishing the news fairly and impartially." —Linwood 1. Noyes, Editor and Publisher, 1927-1964. Mrs. tinwood I. Noyes, President Edwin J. Johnson, Editor and Publisher Pithole Remembered Just 100 years ago tin's summer, an armv of fortune hunters, adventurers, entreprenuers. and madames descended on the borough of Pithole. Pa., a remote valley 100 miles north of Pittsburgh. Earlier in that year of 1865 the promoters of a stock selling scheme had struck oil in the vallev located onlv a short distance from Drake's Well. The Pithole well, moreover. \vas a flowing one arid vielded 250 bar- lels a clav without pumping. Oil then was bringing S6 a barrel—no small sum in 1S65 dollars. Within a few months the butku heat fields had been transformed into a boisterous city of 15.000. Soon the townsite changed hands for • C 2 million. Half-acre oil leases sold for S16.- 500 and seemed worth it. because even the .••prints were flowing oil. Pithole was a complete town, consisting of 57 hotels (some of them more accurately described as "houses"), a dailv newspaper, water svstem, two churches, several hanks, twice daily railroad service, and a busy post office. But the bubble soon burst. The oil stopped flowing and by 1867 the town was dying. Pit- liole today by some miracle of nature has been restored nearlv to its natural state. Onlv an occasional cellar hole and die historical markers give evidence that man once stripped the hills to erect a town of mud streets and raw wood. Deer graze in the peaceful fields, tall pines whisper in the breeze, and pheasants whir from the thick ground cover. The visitor is reminded of the lines from Carl Sandburg's The Grass: "Shovel them under and let me work—I am the grass; I cover all." Do Weil; But Not Too Well Here's an encouraging word for those who don't like to work hard. (There arc some like (hat. thev sav.) A career specialist says that go-getters who knock themselves out so the boss will promote them actually mav be going nowhere. For one tiling, they may do the job at hand so well they become indispensable and can't be spared for a better job. For another thing, it's possible for an eager beaver to be a whi/. at what he's doing now and still not have what it takes to handle something higher up. The expert who pointed out these things wasn't suggesting that aspiring young men goof off. But he did advise Young Men On the Way Up to train a subordinate" who would be able to take over if the Y.M. ON T.W.U. did get the nod. Here's another word of advice to all young men—and young ladies, too: A lot of successful business executives have found that a pretty good way to get ahead is to do your level best at whatever you're do - ing and let nature take its course. It seems to work out amazingly Patent(ly) New Idea Football in August When summer comes, can football be fat- behind? The answer, of course, is "no" and proof is the \ll-Star football game at Soldiers Field in Chicago, Friday. Aug 6. Nothing testifies more to football's enormous appeal than the fact that 73.000 fans are expected to watch the college class of 1964 try to whip the champion Cleveland Browns of the National Football League. Most of the All-Star games turn into routs in which the old pros eat the rookies alive. But it is all in a good cause—the Chicago Tribune Charities, Inc — and the new graduates usually manage to keep things interesting. Otto Graham, in his eighth term as All-Star coach, has an unusually fine crop of talent for this go-round. His major problem is to pick a starting quarterback from among four eligibles: John Huarte of Notre Dame. Craig Morton of California. Roger Staubach of Navy, and Bob Timberlakc of Michigan. Among the fine receivers arc Jack Snow of Notre Dame and Olympic gold medal sprinter Bob Hayes of Florida A&M. To purists, football in early August may seem ridiculous. But the professional football enthusiast is not easily sated, and the seasons keep getting longer. If pre-season ticket sales are an indication, the supply of gridiron violence still has not caught up with demand. On April 10, 1790, President George Washington signed this country's first patent act. Although the patent system launched by that pen stroke was not the first in the world, it has undoubtedly been the most productive. That was 175 years ago. It is time now, says an official of the Department of Commerce, for an international patent system, and the United States must take the lead in establishing it. According to Dr. William W. Eaton, deputy assistant secretary for science and technology, such a system will be "one of the most necessary things in the world of tomorrow"— a world that will be even more scientifically interdependent than it is today. But today, an inventor or innovator is forced to take out a separate pa'ent in most foreign countries, or else run the risk of having his ideas pirated by someone else. It is the man v ho builds a better mousetrap who must beat d path to the world, not the other way around, An international patent union would eliminate this problem, for one patent could cover all member countries We Just Dare You According to word from Europe, the latest rage there is handbags for men, One such item is a black leather bag which dangles by a strap from the wrist. The reason, of course, fs that those awfully hulgy wallets and billfolds and other terribly male things that men stuff into their trouser and jacket pockets are simply devastating to the proper drape of their suits. We don't know who is going to be the first man to introduce the new fashion over here, but we have an idea that any bag hanging at his wrist may have to be used to protect more than the lines of his suit. The Weepiness of W. Willard Wirtz (Copyrleht 19SS. King Feature! Syndicate, Inc.I By /o/m Chamberlain We live in a humanitarian country in a humanitarian age. It's a lot better than living in the days of Ivan the Terrible or even Louis the Fourteenth. But there is such a thing as crying too much for poor, buffeted humanity, and the people with good hearts may end by enslaving us all. The height of something-or-other in dangerous iveepiness was reached the other day by Secretary of Labor W. YVillard Wirtz in a speech before the annual convention of the Communications Workers of America in Kansas City. It must be quoted in extension to be fully appreciated. Said Mr. Wirtz: "Don't let this country get comfortable about a 4.6 per cent unemployment . . . there is onlv one answer as far as employment opportunities are concerned, and that is that every person in this country who is capable of doing a job is entitled to an opportunity to do that job." So far, so good. Nobody will quarrel with Mr. Wirtz for his desire to match ability with opportunity. Mis own Department of Labor might refer Secretary Wirtz's words to the AFL-CIO. which has opposed a government appropriation to finance a major study of job vacancies in the United States. The AFL-CIO has taken the incredible position that if the government were to make a serious study of job opportunities in America it would be used by conservatives to argue against federal action to reduce unemployment. Unfortunately, Secretary Wirtz didn't slop with his statement about job opportunities. He went on to tell a little story about what happened to him on a plane to Chicago. "I was impressed," he said, "with the fact that when the stewardess read the canned speech . . . about how glad they are to have you . . . that she had read that script, for the first time that I had heard in a long time, as though she really meant it and was glad we were on board. "She looked down," so the Secretary continued, "and smiled a little wistfully, and said, Tes, you know'—and she hesitated a little— 'four months ago I finished three years of training at the Cod man Theatre in Chicago.' "I looked at her, and she touched the wings oi the cap. 'Yes,' she said, 'I know what you are thinking. I couldn't find the kind of thing I wanted to do so now I am an airline stewardess.' "You know, in our statistics she is employed. 1 am not sure whether she is oi not ... I am not sure that we are correct in counting a person employed when that person happens to be filling one of the jobs which is available, but when that person is not doing what he., or she is capable of doing." Well, who is to judge whether every personable air line stewardess with a good voice should go to Hollywood or Broadway? Some qualifying board in Washington? My friend Eliot Janeway used to say that he was a "disappointed John McGraw." He wanted to manage the New Yorgk Giants, but he wound up as the proprietor of a financial sen-ice. For all Willard Wirtz knows, the Giants may have lost a great manager simply because nobody would listen to Mr. Janeway's wish. Aubrey Williams, who used to work lor Harry Hopkins in the old WPA days, told of listening to a young man in Montana who said, passionately, that he wanted to be a doctor. "Whv shouldn't he be a doctor?" So Aubrey Williams asked dramatically in my presence. I could only say that lots of under-privileged boys have become doctors by workin« their way through college and qualifying for the chance. Willard Wirtz wants to take the marketplace competition out of life. It's a nice thought. But il he is going to provide jobs for all the reasonably able young girls who want to be actresses, and for all the boys who want to manage a team like the New'York Giants, he will have to build an engine of compulsion the like of which would have made Joe Stalin proclaim himself the veriest amateur in the use of force. Actresses and baseball managers need audiences and in Mr. Wirtz's ideal world you'll be seeing a ball game every day and a drama every night whether you want to or not. As they say.

To pay for these imports, Britain finds other currencies are in demand, and the pound isn't. Last fall the United States had to go to the aid of the pound. With other nations it furnished a fund the Bank of England could draw upon to defend the value of the pound against speculators who were dumping their holdings because they thought the Nothing has divided the Arab j pounct would have to be devalued. Again the British government is seeking to curb imports, boost exports, and ward off speculators as the pound weakens. If Britain's efforts don't succeed, the United States may have to help again. With its hands full in Viet Nam and at home, the United States doesn't relish prospects of increasing economic problems across the Atlantic.
