Monday Evening, January 17, 1955. THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE PROGRAM fOR IOGANSPORT 1. An Optrativ* Planning Commiiilon 2. An Adequate Civic C«nt«r 3. An Adequate Sewerage and Garbage Disposal System, 4. Sufficient Parking Facilities No Time to Stop The annual drives for polio funds have met with such success and have enabled so much progress to be made in finding a polio immunizing serum that now certainly is no time to stop giving when scientists and researchers are on the threshold of conquering this dreaded disease. The development of the Salk vaccine, together with its apparent success, has caused many people to wonder if this should not lessen the need for funds with which to fight polio. The contrary, however, is true. The proven results of the Salk vaccine, administered to thousands upon thousands of children in tests all over the country, will not be evaluated until early this summer. In the meantime, millions of dollars are necessary to produce a sufficient supply of this vaccine so that in the event it is proven as Indicated, there will be enough of the vaccine on hand to immunize every child in the country. Without continued support of the March of Dimes drive, this program would be impossible. Until all children can be immunized against polio, the March of Dimes needs your continued support. Let's put Logansport and Cass County on top again. A Rose Is a Rose Senator Margaret Chase Smith and Representative Frances P. Bolton introduced resolutions into the Senate and House to make the rose our national flower. They argue that a nation without a national flower is embarrassed in the presence of all the nations that have such symbols and they extol the" virtues of the rose. As might be expected, other senators and representatives have different ideas as to -what the national flower should be if there is to be one. The whole episode could develop into a first rate battle royal with flowery phrases as ammunition. It would be hard to imagine a Kansas legislator casting his national flower vote for anything but the sunflower. A Brooklyn Congressman has already mentioned the forsythia, a bloom honored in his part of the country. Probably some security conscious congressman will hold out for the daisy because it is well known that daisies never tell. The resolution is interesting but it is not likely to get far.

Drew Pearson's MERRY-CO-ROUND THE CASE OF THE SLASHED SOMBRERO Drew Pearson Says: Hammar- skjold dealt with uncooperative Nehru and moody Chou; Chou drives a hard bargain for American fliers; Antitrust »uil against Ike-backer begins. WASHINGTON — Here are the highlights of what Dag Hammar- skjold, persevering Secretary General J of the United Nations, ran up against on his historic mission to Peiping. He had arranged 1 the meeting with Foreign Minister Chou En-Lai through a relative who is attached to the Swedish Embassy in Peiping. And before leaving he had telegraphed Premier Nehru of India that he would stop there for important talks and with the hope of getting Nehru's cooperation. Nehru, he felt, would have persuasive influence with the Chinese Reds-. In New Delhi, however, he got his first wet blanket. Not only did 'Nehru refuse to go to the airport to meet-him, but later Nehru outlined his own terms for the release of the 11. Americans and wouldn't play ball unless he, Nehru, ran the show. Ha-mmars'kjold left with no support from Nehru whatsoever, and it was no consolation that Nehru's sister, Madaim-e Pandit, later bawled Nehru out and told him he was becoming increasingly anti-American. In Peiping, Hammarskjold found the Chinese Foreign Minister in no mood to trade easily. He wanted a pound of flesh, plus a lot more, in return for the release of the 11 Americans. One flier in particular may not be released at all—a Lieutenant Colonel who signed! a "confession." Chou En-Lai showed the confession . to Hammarskjold, together with other documents supposed to toe "incriminating evidence." The .Lieuteant Colonel's signed statement admits his guilt as a spy and states' that he was over Red China when he was shot down. The Lieutenant Colonel, according to information gathered by Hammarskjold, also appeared in a Red propaganda film which will soon" be released throughout the Oomnwnist world to prove American espionage. His statement will undoubtedly be broadcast over radio Peiping. The Chinese Demands Briefly summarized, what the slim Swede, who took the bit in Ms teeth by flying to Peiping, got. was this: ^ 1. American fliers would be released piecemeal—not all at once —depending on how the USA complies with Chinese Red demands. Thus three or four fliers would be released, then three or four more, and so on. 2. In return, China complained about the following and wants the United States to act accordingly: A. Presence of the U. S, Seventh Fleet in the Straits of Formosa. B. Lack of U. N. recognition of Red China. C. Freezing of Chinese fund's in American banks. D..The return of Chinese students. Incidentally, very little was said about them. Chou mentioned the students' and said the United States should release those whom China would 1 name. However, he seemed to consider them a comparatively minor issue. Chou Blasts Rayburn He was much more vigorous In urging withdrawal of the U. S. Seventh Fleet. In talking on this subject 'he also sounded off against Speaker Sam Raybura, who has not been too active in the China controversy. The Chinese Foreign Minister claimed, however, that Rayburn had now joined the ranks of Republican Senator Knowland in boosting Chiang Kai-Shek. In discussing U.N. recognition, Chou told Hammarskjold. that India was ready,to make the move ' to seat China at the appropriate time. Obviously there had been . earlier conversations on the subject. The question of unfreezing Chin- ese Funds seemed especially to stick in Chou's craw. He complained that the State Department had 1 agreed to iiscuss this with a special unit of Chinese Financial experts in Geneva during the earlier unofficial talks over release of the American prisoners. However, Chou claimed the United States had suddenly broken off these talfe and refused to unfreeze Chinese Funds. The meeting ended with the U.N. Secretary General making it clear he had no -authority to bargain for the United States. He simply represented the United Nations, had no power to speak for or commit 4ae U.S.A. as to what it would do about such internal problems as unfreezing Chinese Funds. Therefore, no final agreement was jnade. Red Raids What the Chinese Foreign Minister did, however, was not merely state his terms, tout make it clear without actually saying so that release of the 11 airmen would depend on how these terms were satisfied. When Red China got action on her demands, he, indicated, the prisoners would toe released piecemeal. The talk*, of course, were conducted in diplomatic language, and much depends on the interpretation given them by Mr. Hamars- kjold. Note 1—One thing Hamim-arskjold died accomplish was the transfer of the American prisoners to better quarters. They were transferred Just a day or so before he arrived. Note 2— The Red air-raids on the Nationalist Tachen Islands appear to have been deliberately timed for Hamimars'kjold's visit. Ciou made a terrific' point of pulling the Seventh Fleet out of Formosa and probably Wanted to test how important this was to the United States by seeing whether the Sev- enth'Fleet would Intervene during the Tachen bombardment. Kansas City Prosecution One of the first important Republican* to urge Ike Eisenhower to run for President was Roy Roberts, publisher of the Kansas City. Star, Today," he goes on trial on a criminal charge of Antitrust violation. Few people dreamed that the Roberts-Kansas City Star indictment, brought by the Justice De- Copr. 1955, Kins Features SynJkart, lot, V«W righlJ mtfA AngeloPatri Child Must Feel "Tops" In Own Turn "Happy birthday, Berta. And look what Aunt Ida has sent you." Berta, a-ged 15 this birthday, was. the oldest of a family of five. The canjera was something she had longed to own and to have it at last was pure joy. She danced about hugging it, examining it over and over with renewed delight. Suddenly Sue, aged half past 5 began to cry. "I want it; I want it. You give.it to-m«."' "But Sue, this is- Berta's- birth-. . day and that is her present from Aunt Ida. Remember how she sent you that lovely doll on your birthday? Berta did not get anything that time. You had a cake, and the doll and all those other things. Remember? Now it's Berta's turn," •"I don't care. It isn't fair. She gets everything." This is likely to happen In any family where there are a number of children. The only -thing one can do is to keep explaining that sometimes there is just one of the group to be favored. "It is his turn. You had your turn" or "You will naive your turn." Children, even tie younger ones, must learn that there are times when they are onlookers just as there are times when the others look on while they have their turn. H we accent the fact that they, alone, have a hobby horse or a higluehair. or a doll while all the others have none, they will come to understand that they are individuals and learn to accept their position. This takes a bit of doing and partm-eni during the Truman administration, would ever be prosecuted by Eisenhower. All predictions were that it would be dropped. During the two years since Eisenhower came into office, Roy has been a regular caller at the White House, frequently dines with the President, even brought his attorney to Washington last month for the round of entertainment that accompanies the Gridiron Dinner. Meanwhile, serious discussions were talking place at the Justice Department regarding the Roberts Indictment. Certain politically minded executives advised that it •be dropped. However, Stanley iBa-rnes, Republican Assistant Attorney General, appointed by Dee, refused. He had looked into it carefully, considered it a flagrant violation. There were even hints that &e would go back to California •where the weather '1* a lot nore pleasant—if the case against one of Ike's best friends was not prosecuted. .So the Kansas City Star case goes to trial today. sometimes, according to thej.each- ' ability of the younger one, some time. For example, there is the bedtime trouble. The oldest child is allowed to stay up longer than the younger ones and that brings protests and tears. The oldest girl is allowed to use a light nail color and a touch of lipstick. The next younger girl wants the same "right" and must be persuaded to wait her turn. This whole process of teaching children to accept their limitations and to begin to look upon themselves as individuals with personal privileges and rights and possessions is a discipline that strengthens character and develops personality. It is not easy on the parents but then bringing children to whojesome maturity never was and never will be easy. But it has its, rewards. When a father and mother see a child take pride in his own being, cherishing his own privileges and possessions, becoming a personality, the troubles encountered along the way seem trifling. Teach each child that in one special situation he is the Only One. That makes for self-satisfaction without grudging. To keep peace in the family each must feel he is Tops in his turn. Some children are shy because they are afraid. Dr. Patri tells how to help a shy child overcome his shyness in leaflet P-12, "The Shy Child." To obtain a copy, send 10 cents in coin to him, in care of this paper, P. O. Box 99, Station G, New York 19, N. Y. Finds Plastic Balloon And $1,955 Certificate MINNEAPOLIS (UP) — An Indiana man driving along a fence near Newport, Ind., discovered a • large plastic balloon and opened it to find a $1,955 certificate inside, General Mills spokesmen said today. The firm released 75 of the 12 by 8 foot balloons from Minneapolis and 4-7 other cities to celebrate the diamond jubilee of Gold Medal flour. Hubert W. Laws, 35, Cayuga, Ind., found one of them near the Wabash River Ordnance Works where he works as a guard. Still at large are one balloon containing a certificate redeemable for $1,880 and 73 containing $75 certificates. Laws , said he would give the money to the Cayuga Parent- Teachers Assn., of which he is president. The certificates are redeemable to the club, church or charity of the finder's choice, Doyle Hull, Terre .Haute, Ind., found one of the other balloons. Both he and Laws are employed by the Liberty Powder Co. BLASTS TV SET WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.

"Answer: You may wear it at a small gathering of -intimate friends, but not if you are giving a really formal party." Emily, he said "Company"! A couple of ingenues at the Stork Club were chatting about Gloria Vanderbilt's great interest in show- business. "With .all that money", one said, "I can't see why she wa'flts to tackle the heartbreaks of the theater." "Perhaps," chuckled the other, "she was born with a -silver spoon in her head." Funny World. Gloria .Vanderbilt wants to become an actress. The actresses we know wanna become Vauderbilts. One of the gang wondered if all the girls Sinatra's been itemed with meant that he finally doused his torch for Ava. "Sometimes," reminded a sage, "other dolls don't help you forget. They just help remind you!" A Lind-y patron' thought Gloria would enjoy the switch from society to the stage "because she'd m-eet a nicer class of people." "Don't you mean," edited Joyce Bryant, "a nicer class of actors?" Item: "Medica ~"claim-s women past 30 without home or husband' grow sour and pig-headed." And those -with?

Kitty Kallen (in Look) explaining the difference of singing in a theater and via a juke-box: "In vaudeville I usually follow a juggler. In a juke-bcx I. usually follow a beer." That reminds us. Whatever became of all the people who wondered whatever became of Kitty Kalien? On Broadway, cynically reports Jimmy Nelson, "a true friend is 1 one who stabs you in the front." Then there's the paragraph about the -two youthful "geniuses" who came to NYC fresh from a small mid-West college. ' They modestly decided that one. of them would be the best writer and' the second best actor in the world. The other planned'on being the best actor arid the second best writer. A few months later they were the Automat's two best bus-boys you ever saw. Robert Montgomery, asked in a Journal-American interview whether he prefers H'wood or B'way, replied: "I'll take Hollywood for pictures' and Broadway for teevy and the theater."

Contrary to public opinion, stories about movie stars are not woven out of thin air. They are drained out of human .beings, who have donated their every experience and thought to -a hungry press, and there always comes a time when there is nothing leDt to s-ay." •Like the above. >.. .^ Sidney (Steak Pit) Allen reports he heard a newsman explain tiw difference between newspaper reporting (in .the paper) and on teevee: "There's this big difference.

Buddy Fogelson (Greer Carson'i groom) about Cyd Cto»ri«*e: "She takes a pill every day, to b* ugly, but it has no effect on her. She remains beautiful." Whaddaya want her to become, an Old Fogelson?
