PAGE FOUR THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE and LOGANSPORT PlilESS, LOGANSPORT, INDIANA SUNDAY, MAY 20,1962 Editorial .... MENTAL HEALTH CARE FOR CHILDREN Most peopL= have the idea that mental illness affects only adults. The fact is there ar-e many different mental diseases affecting differ' ent age ranges. One of these, a type of schizophrenia, affects mainly yo.ung people, and a special form of this illness affects little children, some as young as four or five; • There are ,19,200 children in Indiana today suffering from some emotional disorder. Four hundred and fifty of them are housed in Long- cliff and other state institutions, while hundreds more are receiving private car.e and treatment at community clinics. Of .the' 450 in our state institutions, only- 25 are receiving intensive: care and treatment tinder the direction of a child psychiatrist. The reminder, including 64 at Longcliff, are housed ' with mentally ill adults, without the benefit of specialized care and with only half-hearted attempts 1o give them any type of education at all. During the coming week a • volunteer may call at your home to ask your opinion about the care and treatment of Indiana's mentally ill children. Air you need to do is give your honest opinions. Your participation in the survey, sponsored by the Indiana Association for Mental > Health, will enable the Association to formulate a program . which will benefit these neglected children. During May you also will have an opportunity to join the Cass County Association for Mental Health and take an active part in the program which directly benefits the mentally ill. The many programs conducted by the Association are financially supported by the Cass United Fund. "' ' •.'••. ' • LITTLE DETERRENT Complete court suspension of heavy, fines and jail sentences, as was meted in the recent city court case involving one of the principals in the teen-age beer and dancing party, would not seem to. serve as a deterrent to others who may be inclined to flaunt the law. Juvenile authorities and law enforcement officials generally agree today that fuller 'enforcement and firmer punishment have a far. healthier effect than will stern lectures and suspended sentences. . While we readily recognize that each case is different, if the heavy fine and jail sentence imposed were justified, then it is difficult to reconcile that with complete suspension of both.

Certain countries regurd 1 their international trade more' seriously than others, but most countries are required by their eoriomics to export varying quantities of products. A country • which has a variety,of goods, to export is likely lo be in a better economic condition than.a single product country. According to the Congressional Report entitled, Economic Policies and Programs in South America": "In 1960 nearly 80 per cent of Latin American exports' were accounted for by, 20 primary products. Petroleum leads the list. In 1957, 26.8 per cent of all Latin American exports was accounted for by petroleum, mainly from Venezuela with smaller amounts from Colombia and Peru. Coffee, with Brazil and Columbia in the lead, was second with 19.3 percent, sugar third with 9.8 per cent." These exports are further examined to show: "Venezuela, for example; exports petroleum and little else. In most years, petroleum's share is in excess of 90 per cent. As a percent of total exports, coffee amounts to 57 per cent for Brazil, copper 69 per cent in Chile, wool 55 per cent in Uruguay. The mosl diversified country visited was Peru, which'depends upon-cotton -and minerals for more than ,40 per cent of export earnings. • FURTHER,, the United Stales is the principal buyer in Latin America, having purchased, about 45 per cent in recent years. For instance: ' "The. United States buys (17.1 per cent of all Latin American coffee, 38.2 per cent of the petroleum, 40 per cent of the .sugar, and 48.7 per cent of the copper. Western Europe is the next .most important purchaser, with about 30 per cent of Lalin American commodities, 'being shipped thcire. The United'Kingdom alone takes nearly 10 per cent." Because we are such important customers of Latin America, our every altitude becomes tremendously significant. For instance, were we to reject, let us say, Columbian coffee, we could wreck the economy of that country which would undoubtedly result in a revolution favorable to the Communists. Or it would to the Communists. As it is, Latin American exports' have hot increased sufficiently in volujjne to help in raising the standards" of . living in South American countries. If South American countries can find other than .American markets.ori a large scale.'H would. be ! belter for Ihem and less.! of a problem for us. For, instance, we dislike .importing sugar, cotton wool, tobacco, edible nuts, meiat, linseed oil, canned fish, wheat, hides and skins. The United States also protects its domeslic industry,' particularly petroleum, zinc and copper. THE BEST offset to the Russian invasion' of Lalin America, would be a common market and a mutually protected currency.

WASHINGTON (UPI) — Almost everyone agrees that our founding fathers showed great prudence in guaranteeing the right of a citizen to petition the government. But over the years the exercise of that right has sometimes taken forms that the founding fathers possibly did not envision.

But you can wjrjte it down that (•here is no rivalry between the two Texans over Billie Sol Esles loday. Texas Go Round Jerry Holleman, the assistant secretary of labor who got fired for taking $1,000 entertainment expense money from Billie Sol Estes, was head of the Texas American Federation of Labor. V/hen campaigning for the Kennedy-Johnson ticket, he told Texas labor .leaders that if the ticket was elected, he would go to Washington as either secretary of labor or assistant secretary, and that other Texas -labor leaders could, therefore, move up. That was the way it happened when Billie Sol Estes flew to Washington for the $100-a-plale Democratic dinner last January, he withdrew $40,000 in cash from his bank for the trip. The mystery still remains as to how it was spent.. Part of i the trouble inside the Agriculture Department is the appointment of assistants lo senators and congressmen to key positions. Emory Jacobs, who was ousted for allegedly getting a gift of clothes from Billie Sol Estes, was former assistant to Sen. Bob Kerr of Oklahoma. Kerr is a power in the Senate and a good man^to keep on your side ...... William Morse, an agricultural official who lost his job when he ducked out on answering questions about Estes, was formerly assislant to ,Rep.
