A Basic Pride Quite a few who examine American life closely today wonder whether our people, generally speaking, take a sufficient pride in achievement. As a nation we continue to get high marks for ingenuity, resourcefulness, technical mastery. Yet there is evidence in a good many places that as individuals some Americans show little interest in, or respect for, solid accomplishment. Dr. James R. Killian, President Eisenhower's top scientific adviser, took note of this matter recently when he said Americans need to develop a higher regard for learning and a fuller pride in achievement. What counts, he said, is the importance Americans attach to the "factor of excellence" in our society. Disquieting signs exist that a lot of us don't worry nearly enough about excelling in the things we dp, whether it's running a business, making a product, trying a law suit, clerking in a store, holding down a government job, or keeping house. - There are at least a couple of things involved in this. One is how we as individuals feel about trying not simply to do what we may vaguely define as "our best," but to meet clear standards of excellence. If we do not think it is good or necessary to succeed by that test, then our pride of accomplishment is indeed sadly limited. The game of getting through the day, the week, and the month, of drawing pay for routine effort, is one that may lure us all at times. But nothing great was ever built "or sustained that way. The day -that becomes the American's general philosophy of life, the Russians can -lick us without firing a shot. The second thinrt is how we look uoon others who excel. Do we resoect them for their attainments? Or do we trv to downgrade and belittle them, to treat them with suspicion because they are "not like us"? If we should ever, as a people, seriously entertain the idea that to be super* ior in any endeavor is to be odd, to be deserving of scom and ridicule, then we might as well fold up our tents. For this world will prove too tough for us. More than ever, the race today is to the swift. We not only had better be swift, but if we wish to gain that end we had better learn to think well of those among us who already are. We're Still Staggered When you look at that new flag, it really hits home. Alaska, the 49th state, is no longer a proposed addition to the U. S. A. Its place in the union is a fact. Even with all the mental preparation we've had, this thing will still take some getting used to. Texas isn't the biggest state any more. Surely the statute of limitations must have run out on a lot of Texas jokes. California doesn't have the highest mountain in the country now, either. Mt, Whitey has to bow to Alaska's Mt. McKinley, some 6,000 feet higher. Alsaka, clearly, is going to steal the superlatives in many a field. Know any place colder? Perhaps the hardest adjustment is realizing that a mammoth area today, part of this country, is detached from the other 48 states by some 1,500 miles. Kind of like building a huge addition to your house at the back of your lot 100 yards from the main place. Just give us a little time, you Alaskans, and we'll digest this thing. After all, it's the biggest bite we've ever taken at once. Opinions of Others SHORTER WORK WEEK? White many Americana advocate still a shorter work week than the prevalent 40 hours spent on most professions and jobs, one European country's population refuses to cut down Its working hours. The industrious Swiss overwhelmingly rejected a recent move to give the government the right to reduce their weekly working hours from 48 to 44. They voted against the reduction by 586,188 votes to 315,910—a majority of 270,278. Their argument . . . was that the government would use the privilege to meddle in affairs that should be settled between workers and employers. There are many arguments on the advisability of a shorter work week in the United States. A four-day week, for example, would give Americans more leisure time. Proponents advance the theory that a shorter week would create employment for more persons. Conversely, a 32-hour week would create more problems for employers who would have to train the additional help. Certainly there is much to be said on the inefficiency which would result in such a transition . . . One argument which certainly seems valid is against a shorter work week for reasons of the soaring, cost of living. To cut the work week to four days would mean that the worker would have to be paid the equivalent wages of five days' work for only four days labor. At the same time the employer would be forced to raise the price of his products or commodities to meet the wag* Increases . . . Then there's the argument that many Americans already are blessed with too much leisure time. This theory merits full consideration. America's choice spot as a world power has been accomplished only through the hard work of our ancestors. — DAILY SUN (San Bernardino, Calif.) Never let man imagine that he can pursue a good end by evil means, without sin- ing against his own soul! Any other issue is certain.—-Robert Southey. 4 AUSTIN (Minn.) HERALD Monday, Jan. 12, 1959 POT POURRI YOU NOTICED in the curren issue of Life Magazine a picture of four Air Force members, each with a bare-foot forward, after being "footprinted"? The picture has local interest since the man a the extreme right is Airman 2-c Roger Deyo, son of Mr. and Mrs Emery Deyo 'who live on Austin Rt. 5. Deyo is the youngest mech anic in flying status at Wright Patterson AFB, Dayton, Ohio. He and the three other men in the picture demonstrate the new sys tern which all airmen will even tually be footprinted as well &• fingerprinted for purposes of iden tification. Since airmen's feet often go unscathed in air disasters because they are clad in bulky fligh boots, footprints are probably evei more valuable than fingerprint! for identification purposes. LOOKING FOR a good pen pal? We have a letter from Toshiro Tabata, a 20-year-old student in Japan, who says he is anxious to correspond with people in thi area. He says: "I am writing this letter as I wish to make some friends in your country through, correspondence Don't you think it's a good idea if we would understand each oth er by exchanging some stamps cards or news and information a bout school life, daily activities or even world events? 'It was said that our Japanese world view is narrow. Maybe il is true. That's why in the past our fathers and mothers made many mistakes. But we youth want to associate with different people of different countries and widen our views." Toshiro adds that he is one of She tens of thousands of Japanese members of the Youth Council for international Contact, which has he purpose to promote good will and friendship throughout the world. His address: Mr. Toshiro Ta- tata, Sayo Ito, 2-5-2 Kamiyap Cho, Kitaku, Tokyo, Japan. Toshiro's command of English very good, judging from his etter, and correspondence with lim would probably be very interesting. He's inviting you to write. THIS IS the centennial year for >ne of Mason City's most famous citizens, Carrie Chapman Catt, he leader of the suffrage movement in the United States. Many today can still remember when the idea of women voting was hooted with derision — by women, as well as men — and the suffrage movement was a fav orite target of comedians and cartoonists. They can probably also remember, chanting as a child: I should worry, I should fret Lawrence Gives His Views on Tenure for Presidents By DAVID LAWRENCE WASHINGTON — Sen. Thomas C. Hennings, Jr., (jD-Mo.), has proposed a constitutional amendment which would do away with the two- term limitation and let a president be elected for as many terms as the people desire. This is a recognition at last that the two • term idea was a mistake, as many of us pointed out at the time it was proposed. But Sen. Hennings doesn't go far enough. The problem today is not how to Increase the influence of a president in his second term but how! to achieve a responsible system j Of party government so that thej American people can fix respon-j slbility at any time and turn out! the incumbents of both the execu-! tive and legislative branches simul-1 taneously. What America is suffering from; today is divided government. For; a period of eight years, the United States has not had the same party | in control of both houses of Congress as it has had in the White House. Solves Nothing To remove the two - term limitation on the presidency solves nothing. It would leave it to the people to decide in each case whether a' third term is desirable. Although] the Democratic party iu its 1912 j platform bad favored a single term for. presidents, Woodrow Wilson wrote, in February 1913, just before bf was inaugurated president, that four years was "too long • term for a president who is Imposed upon and does not lead" and that four years was sometimes "too short." ! Wilson leaned toward the pria-1 ciple of cabinet government, with direct responsibility to the people; M ISTaaaTSa and othr English-' speaking commonwealths. Sooner! or later, be predicted, the United i Stole* would have to find a way to hold the executive and the leg- ialaUv* branches together respon- •ibto to the people. i A* it is now, members of the must go before the people! $W9 ye*r| and face tht' f voters. Yet they may be blamed for the failures of a president who is a member of their party. The Chief executive himself, however, escapes any discipline by the electorate in midterm — he retains his full power to continue for two years amore the policies disapproved by the people in a Congressional election. Division Can Hurt Divided government in a crisis could bring a serious situation for America. In an atomic age it could slow up the action that should be taken promptly to avert a catastrophe. But even in peacetime the damage done by a divided government is considerable. Today the Democratic party is iu complete control of both houses of Congress by an overwhelming majority, but in the 1960 election the people will not be voting on (he record made by (he Democrats in Congress iu the next two years. The people will be voting for or against the record of the man in the White House, who happens to be a Republican, though (he legislative body on which he depends for the fulfillment of big program is of (he opposite party. How can responsibility for mistakes be clearly fixed under such circumstances? Another fault in the present system is that the Congressional and presidential elections must be held have been unstable. The Canadians, on the other hand, have maintained a continuous stability. The late MacKcnzie king served as prime minister of Canada for 21 years with but a brief inter- rupion. There was no cry of dictatorship, because at any moment he could have been voted out of office If the people go willed U. The Congress today operates as a separate entity, yet the minority party members claim the right to a share in the making of White House policy, while the majority party feels there is an obligation on the part of the president to "consult 1 with its committee leaders constantly. Stresses Weakness The leadership fight this week, moreover, in the minority party in the House and Senate, and the split in the majority party over what the rules governing debate in the Senate should be, together emphasize the weakness in the present system. For the American people have no opportunity to hold either party directly responsible for the important decisions made in these controversial matters. This correspondent has long believed that presidents should have legislative experience aiid be chosen from either house of Congress and that the men in I should marry a suffragette, If she should die, why I should cry, Then I would marry any other guy. Mrs. Catt died at the age of i8. If she had lived, she would lave been 100 this month. An interesting article in the Mason City Globe Gazette, tells about her association with this Midwestern area. Her family moved to Charles !ity, Iowa, when she was seven Mason City as principal of the ' high school. Her first speecli for ^Philadelphia suffrage was made in Marshall "My Word! Black Ink!

The Shell Oil Co, announced it is having definite success with the development of a new super- tough plastic-and-asphalt concrete paving. First commercial application was made recently at San Francisco International Airport where three and a half acres of a new jet maintenance base received a i half-inch overlay of plastic pave- I ment. | The company says plastic pave- :ment is designed to meet the jet ! age — that is withstands the weight of new super bombers and passenger planes, withstands without damage the searing blasts from jet engine exhausts, and resists solvent action from spilled jet fuel and cleaning solvents. The new paving can be formulated in hot-mix asphalt plants and applied with conventional paving machines. The company claims its tests show it a natural for highway resurfacing where heavy traffic is encountered, and will materially reduce the thickness of paving needed for highway construction. have been rising, and hospitals staffed, completely efficient — the and talents they be a shock. The answer, then? The answer is, of course, health insurance. Right now, about 70 million people own insurance policies protecting them against hospital expenses. Right now, about 55 million subscribe to more than 80 Hospital costs have been zooming because their own "housekeeping expenses" have been increasing. As improvements in diagnosis and treatments have shortened the average stay of a patient, the average per day cost of handling a patient has gone up. The higher turnover in patients Increases a hospital's overhead, and the hospital's patients pay that overhead. Hospital costs have been climbing because our rapidly growing population is using more hospital services than ever before. Today the annual admission rate to hospitals is 12 per cent of our total population against 8 per cenf a generation ago. More Services Hospital costs have been rising because hospitals are offering more services than ever before — more diagnostic and treatment services, more private and semi-private accommodations, more out-patient service — and it costs money to perform all these new and ex panded functions. And actually, none of (he statistics I've quote tells the whole tale. For the official medical care Index measures price changes only of the same quantity and quality of items bought by clly families In 1947-49 — and WR're not buying the same quantity and quality of medical care as a decade ago. A patient may pay hundreds of dollars just for the use of a life-saving machine that wasn't even in existence in 1949. Again, to quote the Philadelphia Bank, "You can't pay bills Blue Cross Plans operating through the nation and in 1957, Blue Cross paid about $1 billion in hospital bills. But, M'hilc this represents ness, you surely are aware of the zooming costs of one and, although you agree with the Philadelphia Reserve Bank that "health isn't free," you surely have grumbled a few '.'whys" about the bills. Here therefore, are a few of the "whys": Hospital costs have been ballooning because salary and wage levels • 1 1 < < < < ? 1 i { ! 5 e c wiui iiiuex. numoers — ana although I can't prove it, I'm positive the rise in the cost of medical care averages out to a lot higher than 44 per cent.

For the Christian, death is but a transition from this world into the presence of Christ where we will be for ! all eternity. For the unbeliever on the other hand, death becomes ;a terrible realization that the One who has been rejected is actually the Lord of Glory. The time we spend in this world is infinitesimal compared witii eternity. As God gives us the deaths, and death of the body and an eternal separation from God in a place Jesus called Hell. Remember, I did not say this — it is the clear and inescapable teaching of the Bible. 3 Minutes By JAMES KELLER ONE LITTLE RAT One little rat caused a dike to collapse in England recently. After the rodent had burrowed robation of Rayburn's sudden attention to labor bills in the hourg before the Congressmen themselves had begun trying their new offices for size. Why all this maneuvering? Th* answer is in the strategy devised at a meeting of a ipecial four- man AFL-CIO steering committed appointed by labor's high command to meet head • on the whol» problem of racketeering befor« it tore labor apart, Want Anti-Rackets Bill The four - man group — Meany, Walter Reuther, George Harrison and Al Hayes — met last on Dec, 16. The report is they decided to tell their political partners thai! they wanted an anti - rackets bill brought up and pushed through early in the session. They wanted a law on the books. Then i* would be up to the authorities to prosecute. Once the law is there for all to see, the labor leaders plan to tell the McClellan Committee to fold its tenacious probes and silently go away. The labor leaders feel they just can't take another full year of scandal - tainted headlines. True, most of the exposures ripped the lid off Teamster locals but the public wasn't exactly reading it that way. The storie* of the looting of treasuries and multi - billion dollar welfare fund* hit the headlines with punching- bag rhythm. For more than two years now, there has been no union organizing. For over two years crime has replaced virtually all else as conversation pieces and conference agenda inside labor. Ike Keen on This On« Like all strategies, this one has some fuzzy details because t h * other side has some ideas of its own. The other side is not exactly inconsequential. Facing the president of the AFL-CIO is tho President of the United States. Eisenhower is keen on this on*. As the President's opinions «r» translated by his labor aide da camp, Jim Mitchell, they add up to three big differences with organized labor -. meaning t h e r « will be one big fight in Congres*. First, the President wants a very detailed system of union financial accounting of all funds written into the new laws. Furthermore, the President wants his secretary of labor to have governmental subpena power to demand such an account* ing and to back up the right to examine all books. Labor will fight this. Secondly, the White House want* a law forbidding more than racket, eering. The administration wants a bill which would cut the power of unions, such as the.Teamsters, by banning the use of organizational pickets in front of plants in which they have no members. And thirdly, the White Hou»« wants to wipe out the secondary boycott — which punishes a firm doing business with a struck firm. When you hear the noise, you can bet this is what they'll be ba^ tling over for months. (Distributed 11959 by Hall Syndicate, Inc.)
