PAGE FOUR THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE and LOGANSPORT PRESS, LOGANSPORT, INDIANA SUNDAY, OCTOBER I, UC*. Editorials ... * ALL SHOULD GIVE OUR FAIR SHARE The success of Cass County's United'Fund campaign should not .rest only: on the shoulders of -the scores of UF workers,- but is mainly the' responsibility of every citizen of,'this.area. The workers are giving-'twice—once of..thehv time, and further of their' rnqney. Support'of the worthwhile United Fund-.agencies is one of the- responsibilities of good citizenship. It indicates your acceptance of one of the obligations which are incumbent upon the people who live in-a good, healthy-community. • :• : . : . • Few, if any, would' care : tp jdispense entirely with such, agencies as the'Scouts', the Y's; the. , Tgen Canteen, Red Cross,' or • other social agencies .which help contribute to the general good of the community. Theirs is a function which can . be replaced by no other existing organization. Yet to function, they must be supported adequately. . • -•'.• While countless hundreds ..of adults benefit from the work or direct activities of these agencies,, it is the youth of the entire community which-derives' the greatest amount of good from.;; such organizations,..and it is upon them that the,: real-lasting iriipact'-is made for the overall betterment of the 'community.; ';'• _'•.,'' . .- . ; ' When you ate asked to give, examine -your position fairly, accept your responsibility, ;and give wha't is considered a fair share. It is ah investment-.in the-future. . • '.*•' WOMAN OF THE YEAR-HO NOR The selection of'Miss Agda Baft'er as "Woman of The Year", through the program sponsored by. the local Business and Professional Wome'n ! s Elub is one which, should meet with full approval of the entire Logansp6rt;commuhity. Miss Rafter has given many years, of unselfish service in a wide variety of civic positions. Her record of service to the community is an outstanding one, and.she is held in the highest esteem by both her thousands of students and by • ihe public at large. The B arid PW club desetves credit for initiating this award, and as 'long as the selection in, future years is as worthy as it has been in this,' its'first year, trie tribute^should continue to be a very fine one. - .. ONE DAY TO REGISTER Despite greater registration efforts than ever 'before by both-major parties and.union representatives, some prospective voters are not; yet registered. They will have their last opportunity to cio so Monday if they desire to vote in th'e November 8 general election. Every citizen',has a duty to vote, b'ut no one will be permitted to enter a polling pla v ce on .election day .unless he is on the list of registered voters. -It is every citizen's first duty,.therefore,' to 1 make certain' that he is properly'registered. If there is some doubt in your mind whether you are. registered, contact the county clerk's office at/.once to make sure. Hegardless of how badly you may want to vote on election" day, you will not be allowed to exercise : that privilege if- you have carelessly failed to register during the registration period. .' .

Thus, the candidates for 'President, in I960 are handi-', capped by. this-unusual interfer--' . enceV 'The ,-.longer KhrushcheV stays-here, the more 'difficult it becomes, forj the candidates who, cannot postpone, the election to. .suit Khrushchev's'. convenience,/" The iron curtain interferes witlv their publicity.. : ••'•*' What -was hoped for in this elec-.'.. tipri was .that .the 'I960 calmpaign' .:' would bring forth a full debate on •! -, both domestic 'and*.foreign poll--; : *cies. No such'debate has taken-f place since the Hoover-Roosevelt", campaign of 1932. Vice President Nixon's proposal that the debate*, be softened or postponed while.^ .the United Nations is" in session '• has little merit. On the other hand, criticism for criticism's sake,' without details,, without precise : data, is utterly useless.. What is', needed is a .full-dress discussion; of fall problems, particularly those .: relating,'to foreign affairs; without, i slogans, cliches, or oratorical, language but with an emphasis on : ' facts- and .with detailed, data. Less 'than that'is-not worth while. KHRUSHCHEV'S ANTICS are not more important for Americans than the campaign for the Presi- , dency. Who r.eally-'cares that he walked, down to. the gate .of the okTPratt estate, : .where"he spends week-ends, 'to tease the newspapermen that he has a wonderful story for them, namely, that he is going to dinner^ His 'clowning is not very amusing and-would be regarded as .unsavory boorishness were he hot the b.ead of a state: But the presidential election is always a significant event and requires full coverage. When 'such . news is.-'relegated: to, an, inside page to make room for Lumumba and N,krumah, it seems to pne that news values .are out ;of Balance. Perhaps it wfluld be : smart tq take Khrushchev out of the news during the month of October or to put. him in the sports >section of, a newspaper so that,there',is sufficient coverage of IKe presidential campaign on the front pages . where such new.s belongs. THE CANDIDATES seem to be warming up, but they are slow about it.. Maybe they are with- Jiolding their •- best material for such a time .when they are not competing with the .general .assembly df_the United,Nations. The campaign* is still dull,'however:: In fapt, it is. : not'yet a campaign' at all. It is, on both sides, an effort to assert powers of leadership without displaying leadership. The tactics are not easy to understand. As the campaign proceeds, John Kennedy insists that his goals. : are different-,from-those of Richard Nixon, bill neither'candidate has made clear what his goals are. - Let us ask some questions: 2. .How can the United States improveJts techniques for.achiev- 'ing peace? ' 2. How .ca nthe "United States improve its techniques x for winning the cold-war which at this moment means winning over the African.arid-Asian nations and improving -our relations with Latin American; countries? 3. How .are, we to deal'Svith Cuba which has confiscated Amer- 1 lean-owned property? She" property belongs , to thousands of American individuals; families and institutions".' r . 4. How can-we maintain the universal position of the<American dollar and strengthen our gold.

'Too often their spoken language is sloppy, syllable slurred, . pronunciation only approximated, slang .phrases • used instead of clearly expressed ideas in sentences. .. . . • .: • I am not asking for the use of classical .English in ordinary conversation. We all'accept informal talk /between ourselves,-but that does not mean improper usage qf words, 'You know what. 1'mean;' 'and all like, that', and 'on and on,'-phrases,used to save the effort' of chosen words in proper sequence to express what the speaker means. . What we teachers want is an effort on the pupils' part to speak clearly to 'say what they mean. Q^er and over, teachers have to sayi "TelUus that in a sentence." Somehow this instruction does not carry'over.' Parents-do not seem to understand the* value of correct, cle.ar, speech and unless they do, the. younger generation will not learn it. •-: : (There-are some authorities on this, subject who' maintain that TJsage. today's usage, is a standard for" English' speech. Maybe. I'd like.,to know, as w.ould Mr. Mortimer Smith, .writing in the Education -Digest',' whose usage is our standard? Winston Churchill's, Walter Lippmahn's," 'R o b e r t Frost's? or that of a -cigarette' company using an incorrect -gra-, matical form for advertising purposes?

Thus far,-/no candidate has discussed these vital questions. . ' . DRE.W PEARSON NEW YORK. — Jerry Wadsworth, U. S. Ambassador to the United Nations, . turned .up at a reception given by, delegate Mary Lord, the flour heiress,' to tell other Americans that Niki£a Khrushchev, had tried, io give him a genial bear hug a few minutes belore at a Russian reception. Khrushchev had opened his arms about to embrace the rotund Wadsworth. Then noting the ambassador's 6-foo 4-inch frame, he had exclaimed: "there is America lor you!" and'shook hands instead. Wsdsworlh, a bit embarrassed, confided to fellow American delegates that he wasn't sure whether he should have gone to the Russian reception. "Of course you should," replied Sen. Wayne Morse'of Oregon, also a delegate. "We shouldn't miss an opportunity to play the same kind of_ diplomat"' Khrushchev plays. • Every Air 'an delegate who gets an inv ..ion to a neutral, or African, or Russian reception should attend in order to counteract Khrushchev's very effective social-lion diplomacy." Weird TVew Diplomacy Real .fact is..that Premier Khrushchev has evolved a new' kind of diplomacy at the United Nations and' American diplomats don't know how to cope with it. They follow the old-school technique of. punctilious pink .teas, peppermints, and protocol. They shudder at. the tactics of the Soviet chairman who will hammer . on his desk in .'disapproval, of Prime Minister Macmillan, and speech and writing. If they take the trouble to use good' English, to uphold it in their talk and in their choice of reading material, they can Instill a dfesire, a taste of good language usage in the children. Reading good literature is one very-good-way to do this. Teaching 'English grammar to the younger children does not help much. That should, in, my •opinion, be held over for the advanced classes in the .High School. But daily practice in. talking, listening, reading are helpful. By their speech shall you know them."

Even you know more than to cross the living room in the dark!" oft...* two hours later sit down to confer with him; or who, will demand the Designation of Secretary, General Dag Hammarskjold one day, and the next day, give him an en- thusiastjc bear hug. This is the technique of AmgF- •'icar. Senators who may denounce each other "on the Senatp floor, then sit down over bean soup together in the Senate restaurant. But American diplomats aren't prepared for it. At the recent Soviet reception, Hammarskjold got a big bear hug from Khrushchev, together with the jovial greeting: "I once took you for a row in Moscow. I've got calluses all over my hands from rowing you." • No White House Dinners v ' The time is rapidly passing when President Eisenhower can take advantage of the opportunity, suggested by State Department advisers, to counteract Khrushchev's -very effective wooing of the rieutrai nations. . , • Several American ambassadors abroad^ cabled Washington urging that these neutral leaders, who have great 'influence, be invited for lunch or dinner, .at the. White House. U. S. .Ambassador .Karl Rankin in Belgrade literally begged that President Tito of Yugoslavia be invited .to-Washington. But Tito has now , sailed back home—uninvited. He was a. loyal supporter of the United States on many policies, refused to.go along \vi1h Khrushchev, or'even to applaud his. speeches. ''But he was not invited to Washington. . Two dozen other heads of- ';s or prime ministers remain;in,.,ew York, all of them important in in-- fluencing the cold-war battle for the uncommitted countries, all of them amenable to an invitation from the President of the United Stales. ..;.-' None, however, have been in-, -vited, and White ; Hjnise ; aloof ness has now,become painful. Meanwhile, jChrUshchev never misses an opportunity to wine and dine African-Asian leaders at his country estate on Long Island or at the Soviet mission on Park Avenue. A steady stream .of .neutral dignitaries goes in and out of these two places for; lunch, tea,. or dinner. Khrushchev also turns • up - at every diplomatic reception where he is the center of attention. No career diplomat, skilled at cocktail parties, works harder at this game than the colorful, unpredictable, genial and bellicose leader of the Soviet Union. - Ike's Dinner 'Guests In contrast to White House failure to invite .neutral heads -of state to dine at the White House, here are ^some of the friends the President'has invited to both official and unofficial White House dinners: Ellis Slater, of a whiskey firm, a bridge-playing partner who dines at' the White House fre-' quently and was also included in the state dinner given for the Queen of Englarid^George Allen, the White House "Jester"; Bob Woodruff, chairman of a soft drink firm; Elizabeth Arden, who has extended the hospitality of her Arizona beauty ranch to Mrs. Eisenhower and who, according to her designed, has made gowns for Mrs. Nixon af below cost.

The foregoing is the stuff of current headlines. It was published in 1954! At that time, unfortunately, too many people were abusing Congressional . committees (and newspapermen) for exposing the strategy and tactics of Communism. \ LAFF-A-DAY »».
