PAGE FOUR THE PHAROS-TRIBtlNE and LOGANSPOBT PRESS, LOGANSPORT, INDIANA SUNDAY, DECEMBER 31,196L ;Editorial.... Happy New Year The-Pharos-Tribune and'Press' wishes one and all a very happy and prosperous New Year. We sincerely hope that "1962 will'be a year, of promise, of encouragement, of well-being, and that each, one will have a year of good health. Hail And Farewell It is' not too hard "to bid farewell -to the year 1961. Thankfui as we must be that 1 it sawno outbreak of nuclear war, we, cannot overlook the blows it dealt to the security of-pur nation by\ the setbacks to peace in Laos, in Vietnam, in In-:" • dia, in the Congd" in Indonesia, in-'Quba and in Berlin. " . ' Nor can we be smug about pur own economic recovery, the fast pace of, our growth and of individual income, for we are- yet to solve the problem of unemployment which leaves one in fifteen persons, willing and able to work, out of a job; nor the problem of labor relations, which sees labor leaders determined to seek a shorter work week—one union seriously authorized a strike if it does not win a 20-hour week—when the .nation needs their .productive abilities; nor the problem of the farm surplus, which takes more of the taxpayers' levies to support .fewer and fewer but more efficient mechanized farmers. The best we can say for ,196! is that we got through it without serious harm." It is human nature to be optimistic about the unknown and so we hail 19.62 with-'bpen arms. There is so much we wish for this coming year. If we had one wish and only one, it would be that. Americans grow up and realize that we are losing our freedom when we do not recognize communism for the arch enemy of our way of life and when we do not devote'all our talents to its defeat before it overwhelms us. The Defense Department's sad conclusion, that citizen-soldiers are not conditioned to prevent fighting, applies to all of us. In the new year of 1962, may.we learn that the way to win today's kind of war. is to' go on the offensive. We must win battles for freedom if we are to inspire confidence in our leadership and start a trend back to sanity and justice. Resolutions Of Yesteryear Is there any significance in the fact that people no. longer make New Year's resolutions with the sincerity and determination of yesteryear? The custom has become something of a joke, resolutions are made to be broken or 'for laughs, as the saying is. . It seems to us this is symptomatic of the* times. It is part of the subtle, so-called sophisticated attack on everything that made for the solid, home-centered, happy family life of not so, long ago, that .we no longer put so much store by resolutions and many other things that held Americans to the straight and narrow path of rectitude and made for the full life. True, resolutions were not. always kept even, in the uncomplicated times. But they were made •with every intention of keeping them. And a determined, earnest effort was made to that end. .We need that kind of resolve today, as individuals, as a people and as a nation. It is one old American trait that can lift an intimidated world out of danger today, as it built a bright new world for our forefathers out of a wilderness yesterday. Questions And Ai.:zvers Q—Why was the country of . Yugoslavia so named? A—Yug is "south" in the Slavic language, so Yugoslavia simply means Land of the South Slavs, Q — Which is the oldest university in the New World? A—The University of Santo Do. mingo, the Dominican Republic, chartered in 1538. ° * * Q—Are lizards poisonous in general? A—Only two: the beaded lizard and the gila monster. Both in North America. CARNIVAL •U GEORGE £. SOKOLSKY AUTOMAMpN : We give a thing a name and suddenly ,we;have something altogether new. Automation is as old as .man. Whoever invented the wheel; whoever learned how to make a fire out of sparks; whoever made animals domestic;--the inventor of. the needle'.and his successor, ( ihe inventor of. the sewing machine—all these and millions of others .were,-among the leaders of-automation. The Old Testament, which is an excellent . compilation o£ folklore, tells us: "ADAH BORE JABAL; he was the father of such as dwell m tents andj-hayie cattle^-'And his brother's name was Jubal; he was the .father "of a]fsuch..:as:J]andle the.harp and pipe. Apciaiiah', she also bore Tubal-Cafiri,''the forger of every cutting instrument of brass and -iron. . ." Without the wheel,nothing of our present civilization would' have been possible. But we do not know who invented the wheel or how it came into existence. It is guessed that the wheel might have been invented in, the Nile valley ~or in the valleys of the Tigris and Euphrates, but how did the wheel come to China? : Perhaps the second .most sighit. icant stage of automation in the civilization of man is what we call the industrial revolution. The central point of. this is the understanding" of the use of: steam. THE INDUSTRIAL revolution harnessed steam and changed the processes of manufacture and created our modern methods of production and distribution. Steam is nothing more than gas produced by water when it is boiled. The problem was how to prevent steam from flowing away or exploding. Many men worked at steam but it was James Watt (1736J819) who, watching a tea-kettle, thought of how steam could push something up. Thus, steam was harnessed as an instrument of mobility and an entire new phase of automation developed which changed not only social, but economic and political c o n d i tions throughout the world. The story of steam and its various applications to production lots c/. Luck" ANGELO PAIR I New Year Offers One Chance More DREW PEARSON then- guests." .

Styles Bridges died, Saltonstall moved, up the ladder of seniority to the coveted spot of ranking Republican on the powerful Appropriations Committee.
