PAGE TWO THE LOGANSPORT PRESS, LOGAN^ORT, INDIANA TUESDAY, OCTOBER IS, ISST THOUGHTS ... JJot every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enti£ into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will ,^>f my Father which is in-heaven. —Matthew 7:21. Nothing is really lost by a life of sacrifice; everything is lost by failure to obey God's call.—Henry P. Liddon. Editorial Comment- Sputnik And The Arms Race The Russians would be totally out of character if they did not attempt to. gain maximum propaganda value from- their success in probing outer space. They are crowing loudly, and showing no hint of humility in the face of the 'great natural forces involved. The worst aspect of. this is that the Kremlin obviously seeks to capitalize on its scientific triumphs to bulldoze the free world into accepting its disarmament proposals. Using "Sputnik" as a kind of club, the Russians want to frighten tremulous neutrals and even sturdy anti-Communist peoples into submission. To combat this effort gives to the United States and its firm friends perhaps the most hazardous diplomatic task they have had since the close of World War II. For what has dazzled the world is not only that the Soviet Union has catapulted into space a spinning object able to resist the pull of the earth. It is that by doing so they have revealed capabilities heretofore merely claimed ;or hinted at. But we must not forget, and we must not allow pur friends and the neutral nations to forget/that the United States has not—as a corollary of Russian success —lost its own capabilities. We still have a"huge.and varied arsenal of atomic and hydrogen weapons and the ability to deliver these to the enemy. So long as we can put one hydrogen bomb over the Soviet Union, we have the capacity to render another war. an unbearable holocaust for the Russian people. The evidence at this moment suggests that we are trailing Russia in the, development of long-range guided missiles which could deliver nuclear warheads. But the race is not over. Just as the Soviet Union learned the secret of nuclear weapons after we had jumped into a huge lead, so we can redress the balance in the missile field. Our great nuclear arsenal plus the prospect of success in the missile and satellite field should give us confidence, though plainly there no longer is room for smugness and complacency. Neither we nor our friends should be panicked into submitting totally or one by one to.Russia. War is just as unthinkable for both sides today as it was before "Sputnik" was launched. So long as this is so, our resolve to hold out for peace with justice for the great'bulk of mankind in the free world should not crumble. We have no. reason to yield in fear. Rather we should resist in the sure knowledge of our undiminished strength, and set about adding to it with all the resources at our command. 'How Are The Mighty Fallen' A sad by-product of the world's furore over the Soviet man-made satellite was reflected recently in the wry comment of a British scientist, Dr. D. C. Martin. He said Britain lacks the resources to take part in the competitive contest for supremacy in the earth satellite field. As a consequence, he added, the British will have to content themselves with monitoring' the movements of other nations' artificial "moons." It is hard to realize that this is a voice from the once allrpowerful British Empire, which reached to the corners of the earth and swept the seas clear of hostile foes. Thus the empire, once dominant on the field of power, is reduced to a kind of umpire— counting. the palls and strikes of other players. So They Say What he (retiring Secretary of Defense Charles E. Wilson) believed, he said ,and he said it bluntly ... with short, punchy words that may have stung a few people here and there, but always left the air a lot cleaner than it was before. —Philip M. Talbott, president of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Carnival T.M. R.j. U.S. Pit, Oft. <£> 1P57 b» NEA StfV«,, t nc . "I'm helping my mom clean housel She suggested I come play with you!" Westbrook Pegler Fair Enough The Arizona Corporation Commission has ordered the Southern Pacific to continue a superfluous passenger train on a 200-mile stretch between Eloy and 'Yuma. Most of this stretch is bad lands, but it also includes two strips, one near Yuma in the west and the other on the eastern end of the line, in which the writhing giant of the new west is being born. There are some mineral industries in these borderlands, and the old desert, placed under irrigation, produces millions of big, fragrant canteloupes, and more than enough carrots for all the lamb stew in the world. However, most of the inhabitants ride in their own cars on short hauls, and fly on their long errands and the Southern Pacific said it was losing almost $2 million a year providing a form of passenger Bervice which could be called shabby de luxe for an average traffic of one passenger per mile •per day at an average of less than one dollar per passenger. THE FACELESS MAN, beloved of the New Deal under his collective name of The Little People, is the principal shareholder of the S.P. and will pay the bill for the continuation of the service which the public demands but will not buy. But the S'.P. is a soulless corporation with no personal friends- and the order to continue the passenger service is a great popular victory over greed and arrogant privilege. A long time ago, in Apache country, to the north t the resident' public was crazy about travel by train. When a pioneer named Billy Garland was fixing to put through a railroad to haul the ores of the Jos and Papagos, too, segregating mines and a very deluxe pullman themselves in haughty aloofness trade, he had to cross the Apache from the white folks. t - . nation between Bowie and Globe.

At Safford they had camps under the cottonwoods along the canal where young white racists sometimes bombed them with melons and old peaches.

Sokolsky These Days ABOUT ARKANSAS It is impossible to understand an event without some- recognition of the -environment in which the events occurs. Recently I wrote on the nature of the Arkansas-population. ; The United' States is composed of ,so-many varieties of peoples, so many / different combinations, of folks, that any generalization about the American people proves to be incorrect in some locality. Therefore I was especially grateful when an editor of the "Arkansas,-Democrat" of. Little Rock •-.wrote' to me^about his" state, which is now international-, ly so newsworthy. .- He wrote: "The institution of slavery came to Arkansas long.'before statehood. John Law's German and French Catholic colonists under a Jewish, manager brought the first Negro slaves to Arkansas Post in 1719.' where Henri De Tonti in 1686 had^ ' established the first permanent European settlement in the lower Mississippi valley. . THE 'MOUNTAIN counties of Arkansas were settled by pioneers from the southern Appalachians, who . . .sprang from British Highland stock.. Families from the tidewater belt, of Virginia, the Carolinas, Georgia and Alabama.'and from Kentucky and Mississippi -settled the cotton .lands of southern and eastern-Arkansas. Some of our lowland' families trace their ancestry to French and Spanish colonists ... "'Public school facilities .are available to all children in the Ozarks and every other geographical divisio'n. Some of the Ozark towns have public libraries, and the State Library' Commission operates several regional libraries in the mountain area. The University of Arkanssa, College of the Ozarks, Arkansas College, John Brown University and Ft. Smith Junior College are all located in the Ozarks. Up until recently there were • two state vocational schools in northern Arkansas.,- Arkansas Polytechnic College and Arkansas State Teachers college, which are south of the Ozarks, always draw a large number of students from the ' hills. Ozark folks established the first colleges in the state, beginning in 1852. , , "OUR NORTHWEST . counties, are among the most progressive counties of the state. They balanced their agriculture long before the rest of Arkansas got interested in, diversification. "Although 'the hill counties furnished several thousand troops in the Union Army, the majority.; of the able-bodied men fought for the South. Few of them .owned slaves, but they were not indifferent to state's rights. The- most decisive battle west of the Mississippi was fought at Pea Ridge in Benton county, and now the Federal government is makin-g a National Battleground Park there." I found.this account interesting because it is from the hill-folk that Governor Oryal Faubus springs. He started as a-'school teacher, then moved into, all sorts 'of public ' offices, Circuit Clerk, County Recorder, Postmaster, Highway Commissioner, Administrative Assistant to the Governor and Directors of Highways. •'He Jones-Auto. 8 10 485, A.

"The Country Without an Army" could well be the nickname for the tiny principality of Liechtenstein, 61 square miles nestled in a narrow valley between Switzerland and Austria. Liechtenstein, an independent nation, with a population of only about 14,000 people, is represented overseas by the Swiss government. Having taken part in no wars for 150 years, it maintains no army. Its capital, Vaduz, manufactures" only two items, cotton textiles and postage stamps. The stamps, one of the country's largest sources of income, are sold mainly to stamp collectors throughout the world. © Britannlca Jr. Encyclopedia Contract Bridge By OSWALD JACOBY DEFENSIVE COUP CUTS OFF DUMMY The cream of the crop of young bridge players : is.
