Before a decision, is jeadied as ti whether to build trie two new junior highs through a building corporation or not, it seems prudent to ask, "Just -what will the junior high -student population be here in two, -three, or four years?" • • As far as the public is concerned, the urgency of build.ng sooner^ through the costlier school building corporation as against waiting another year for "the possibility of obtaining a much less costly.. Common School Fund loan, should be de• cided primarily on the need for the new junior h'gh school space at the time of completion under either of the 'two plans. Is the upper elementary school population increasing so heavily here that we should start building immediately, or at, least as quickly as possible? The ans\yer to thaf-'question is determinable, and. need not be guessed at, The junior high "enrollment of -1962, 1963, and 1964, Is now in the elementary schools, and a fairly- accurate estimate-^! our junior high space requirements in those years can and "should be made now, so that there will be no need for the board to shift the blame to anyone if we lack the school space in the next several years. The -responsibility lies with the school board. We have repeatedly urged that a sound building program -be accomplished without delay. Yet at the same lime, the construction should be accomplished at the lowest' possibleJcost to the 'tax-' ' payers, -consistent with actual building needs. Interest on a Common School Fund loan is 2 per cent. Interest on bonds issued by a building corporation will run close to 4Vz per cent. On a two million dollar loan or bond issue, paid off in' equal installments .over a period of 20 years, interest costs to the.local taxpayers will be approximately half a million dollars higher on the building corporation bond issue than on the- same program accomplished with a loan through the Com- . mon School Fund. -. - If the. school enrollment will be such as to re- auire the new junior highs' before they can. 'be built with a Common School Fund loan, then we should proceed now with the building corporation program. If -junior high school enrollment in two or three years will not be so. heavy as to. make immediate building mandatory, then the taxpayers should be 'saved the added half million dollar cost, and we should do all possible to obtain the Common School Fund loan. This is the determination' our school board" must make. Questions And Answers Q—Who was'the first .-American commander to lead American troops on European soil? A—Gen. John J..Pershirig.

SOKOLSKY THE LUST'FOR LEADERSHIP Many persons the^e days talk about leadership, about Ihe need for braader, more , intensified leadership. II is difficult quile'to undcrslar! what they mean because actually the history of the 19th and 20th centuries has been a revolt against leadership, ah effort on the part of the individual, to think things out for himself and Io f act'upon his own judgment and to take the consequences. That is why during these centuries there have been so many changes and'many of them have been for the 1 belter. When great historic changes take place, many institutions of social value temporarily seem lo collapse. The disturbances caused by such changes are always more trying to contemporaries than they are significant in history. During this century, when ma- ferial security seems so urgent, such' movements' . as fascism, nazism, communism, . socialism, and may others'have developed to achieve total dependence of the individual upon the state. THE CONCLAVE OF leadership which appears in the general assembly of the United Nations is not loo impressive. These are not men of broad culture or of noble aspect; most of them are practical politicians, men who fought their way up- through revolutionary forces or through the ap- aratus of parly organization. Most of Ihe men at this meeting who stand out as leaders and who • control the 'lives of people, and the., destinies of nations are startlingly .not strong men, not handsome men, not powerful .personalities. There is, for instance, ; not an orator in the crowd, Khrushchev^ Nasser, Castro, Eisenhower are not great speakers eilher in voice, in gesture or in nobility of. thought and expression. Nasser's monotony was shocking in view of his power to sway men. • - YET THESE MEN are leaders and men follow them. Why?- What, is the - attraction? The answer seems to" be that in an age of action, men of action are admired. These men are like swift automobiles in a race to go faster and faster, harder and harder. It is not high thought that is wanted but action, action for action's sake. Note that Stalin avoided leaving Moscow; Khrushchev chases about the earthv'He keeps on -.'- -moving constantly. . He is noisy, quarrelsome, an -egomaniac, but he moves about He is a man of action, of action for the •sake of action. The first debate between-Vice President Nixon and Senator Kenedy did nothing to advance these men from the standpoint of leadership. Here were presented, on television,, two youngish, tired- looking men who were exceedingly .polite to each other, who seemed.to agree with,each other about -nearly everything but who expected. r to ..reach their goals by different means. The spectacle was nonsensical. THESE ' .MEN .represent.. -two vastly divergent views' of- society; one,- Nixon, believes'in capitalism, which he calls "private enterprise," a synthetic term that hardly represents the'mechanism; the other, Kennedy, is a Fabien Socialist who believes thaf'it is the duly and responsibility' of- government to operate the eco-' nomic mechanism. Kennedy' eschews communism which provides the'same means, but he is a Fabian,-!-Socialist. •' . When Vice President Nixon po- 'filely reiterated that the goals of both were identical but the means different, wha.t he said was most discouraging because from such a statement "one can only infer that both are Socialists but at a different pace. What,'/difference does the pace make'if the end is state monoply of all life? Which of these two men is-the leader, the slower or'the .faster? The' absurdity of .the dehale appeared in the ridiculous questioning by radio commentators wjw were either badly coached or insipidly naive. Eac.h candidate was asked to state why he thought thai he was .worthy of the Presidency.. And the marvel of it is that each one''answered such a question. , , A LEADER OF' MEN never stales his qualifications; they are inherent in his personality. These t two candidates sounded like. very, young men applying" for their THE SUNDAY PHAROS-TRIBUNE . 'and' ' LOGANSPORT PRESS Published, eacti Sunday toy the Pharos-Tribune 'and Press, 517 E.

NEW YORK. — Nikita ; Khrushchev is a long way from fulfilling his boast that-Russian Communism wjil replace \American Capitalism'; r but ' at' least he 'can say-Vthat^fie- has taken over part of'the family fortune of Secretary, ol State Herter. "- ; V 'iWJiJjn* Khrushchev drives out to rLongvIsla'nd for week ends, he spends' them in the multimillion- dollar -mansion built by Mrs.', Christian .Herter's grandfather. Herier, 1 in contrast, spends his week ends in a New York hotel or flies back lo work at his desk in Washington. . The mansion Khrushchev occupies was built in. 1911 by Charles Pratt, grandfather of 'Mrs. Herter, and treasurer of the Standard Oil Company before'it was split up by, Teddy Roosevelt's trust- busting. Charles Pratt was .born in; 1855, in the good old days-when there were no income-taxes and the exploitation of public lands he can' be sure of me when we go" anywhere. That's the way it is. I'll be left out of everything if I break"'off)with him." It;"is just too bad that "it is the _way.things are." It is not a good way that permits children to ape adult ways, .ways for which they are not prepared either in mind or body. It is too bad to spoil their childhood,-a period of life when they should be as free of such associations-as they are sup- : posed to be. It is too bad that they are allowed to do such meaningless things as "going steady" and, meaningless as they must be, take the edge off the exper- ience'that will, later on in'-''their lives', come to them,- the most thrilling",' the most important experience ever to come their way, the. real engagement, the real emotional experience of falling in love and knowing that it is returned, ,full fold. ^ Parents are left no choice.
