The Pharos-Tribune Editorial Comment. Still Our : Responsibility When 29 teen-agers are arrested •for beer drinking and stealing after a week-long lake party, the natural question was, "Where were their parents?" When this happened recently at Lake Manitou, the Fulton circuit judge called in the parents and gave them a good lecture, as he probably should have under such circumstan- . 'ces. Mere graduation from high school >does not make an adult out of every v boy or girl, as was so well demon- :TSti:ated in -that case. We as parents '•Still have a responsibility to provide supervision so they will keep out of trouble if at all possible. Some of us are too quick to try to put the blame on someone else. A good example of this occurred in the recent .-trial of a local young man following -a beer party at his home. A mother accused the defendant of getting her son intoxicated, but there was no evidence in the trial that the defendant gave the boy any beer or other intoxicant. There was some evidence instead that the boy himself had taken a bottle of intoxicating liquor to the party. When .our children break the law, we are going to have to ask ourselves, "How did I fail?" An honest answer •may enlighten each of us. It's Frustrating Outside Twice recently, former President Eisenhower has let us see how frustrating it is for a man who has known power to be helpless once he is out of office. His experience also emphasizes the difficulty the ordinary citizen has influencing his government once he has given them the mandate to rule by his vote. The first time, Eisenhower told a newsman who asked if he would like to be back in the White House, "Each of us has his portion of ego. At least one night I dreamed that the Twenty- Second Amendment has been repealed—and it wasn't wholly a nightmare." That was at the news conference he held in Washington May 10,' when he took the Kennedy Administration to task for seeking a dangerous concentration of power over Congress and the country, and promised to support Kepublican Congressional • candidates who opposed it. More recently, Eisenhower urged ^Representative Walter H. Judd of Minnesota, the second ranking member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, to run for re-election after announcing his retirement,.-in the belief he could be of more service elsewhere. "Even 15 per cent of your time given to these greater issues of foreign policy as a Congressman are worth all of your time when you are on the outside," Eisenhower wrote. The voter's part in all this is over- • whelming. Every two years, he must be sure that his vote is sending to Congress men who will enact his ideas into law. And every. four years, he must be sure the man he votes for as President will carry out his philosophy of government. In each case, his vote is practically his sole chance of influencing the course of the nation, for two or four years.

By DICK WEST WASHINGTON (UP!)—The recent, controversy over alleged "muzzling" at the Pentagon has a counterpart on Capitol Hill which might be defined as "babbling." It involves the tendency of congressional witnesses lo open Ihe floodgates of prolixity when they are invited, or obtain permission, lo lestify at committee hearings. The prblem has become so acute as lo. induce one toy company to design a "witness doll." You wind it up and it bends your ear. It,is my theory that many witnesses work on space rates. That is, they are paid to present the views, of various 'groups under a scale based on the number of words they can get into the printed record. Be that as it may, there is no doubt that 'babbling is burdensome lo the committees. Over the years, some of the best minds in Congress have grappled with the .question of how to curtail it. Several Suggestions Made Suggestions have been made for building, trap doors under the witness chairs and for installing devices that would automatically signal a fire drill when testimony exceeded a certain length. These proposals, however, seem inconsistent with the ba'sic right of a citizen to exercise his tongue, and none has been adopted. Now aiong comes Sen. Eugene J. McCarthy, an ingenious Democrat 'from Minnesota, with what I regard as Ihe ideal cure for galloping verbosity. While talking with a group of reporters the other day, McCarthy noted that the Senate Finance Committee,, of which he is a member, is preparing for -hearings on Presiden Kennedy's trade program. Past experience indicates that the hearings will run for. several weeks. But McCarthy has devised a plan which, if adopted, undoubtedly would shorten them by as much as 75 per cent, Would Require Presence Simply stated, it would require each witness to ^sit through the ' testimony of all the other witnesses. McCarthy : figures that i£ wit-. nesses were forced to listen to each other they would voluntarily begin to fetter their vocal cords out of a '^mutual desire for self . preservation. , Unfortunately; however, McCar- thy's' plan doesn't deal with the related problem of committee members who question.witnesses at great" length and then disappear.' .'•... ' To be truly, effective, It would., have to be expanded to require that each member sit through the questioning by all the other mem. bers. • Reviews Of TV Shows Thursday Evening, June 7,19GJ. By RICK DU BROW ' HOLLYWOOD (U.PI) — My favorite fat entertainer was the late W. C. FieldSi who is reported to have responded thusly when informed he was dying: "On the whole, I'd rather be in Philadelphia." I have also admjred Edward Arnold and Sidney Greenstreet. But few of these lamented stout souls and their compatriot, fatsos could surpass the range of their bearded heir, Sebastian Cabot: Wednesday night he carried off •his criminologist duties again on CBS-TV's "Checkmate," and one week from today he plays the title role in Igor Stravinsky's television dance-drama, "Noah and the (Flood." It's true that Cabot didn't have much competition on "Checkmate," which has been cancelled. One of his detective companions, a blond type, name of Doug McCIure, looked at all times — including Wednesday night — as though he had just stepped out of the college shop at Saks Fifth Avenue. The other detective, Anthony George, is sort of a poor man's Dane Clark, who-was a poor man's John Garfield to begin with. "Checkmate" made Cabot a star, and that's good. Also, in contrast to being populated by the hip chicks of the other private eye ventures, it provided a haven for the most sizzling mature blondes in the; business as leading ladies: the likes of Dina Merrill, Joan Fontaine and Nina Foch. And that's good. But without Cabot, "Check- male" would have been reduced lo the level of "Hawaiian'Eye." And the truth is, all three Check- maters — including Cabot — were laughable as investigators. The private eyes I know would sell their mothers and couldn't tell the difference between a 1929 burgundy and an extract from a Skid Row bathtub. 'At last report, McCIure was promoted to being a cowboy in the new series "The Virginian." And George was threatening to make a movie.

The American people recently- set a new milestone in wiping out religious prejudice by electing the first Catholic in American history as President of the United States. The President's brother, Robert F. Kennedy, is now in a position as Attorney General where he can punish or at least deport those charged with religious intolerance. There are at least three such this column will undertake to exiles in the United Slates and name them. Foremost on the list is Andrija Artukovic, now living near Long Beach, Calif., who, as Minister of the Interior for the Nazi State of Croatia during the war, has been charged as a war criminal by the Yugoslav government. After Hitler invaded Yugoslavia he set up (he "Independent State of Croatia" for the purpose of splitting the old Kingdpm of the Serbs, Croats, and Slovenes and stirring up as much -antagonism as possible between them. In charge of police matters and the religious and racial "purging" of Croatia was Dr. Artukovic, Minister of the Interior. ' And in 1941, Adolf Eichmann sent Capt. Franz Abromeit, a so- called "Specialist in Jewish Affairs," lo Zagreb, Croatia, to speed up the liquidation not only of Jews but the Serbs, who are Orthodox. The Yugoslav government has now charged that Artukovic was responsible for the murder of approximately 800,000 Serbs, Jews, and Gypsies who were liquidated before the Allied armies pushed into the Balkans 'at the end of the war. A Little Hitler According to 'the records of the Yugoslav government, Artukovic set up a "Central Office for Jewish Affairs," headed by Dr. Vilko Kinel, which in turn opened concentration camps in Labor- grad, Djakovo, Tenje, Jasenovac, Pag, Stara, Gratiska, Danica, Jadovono, '.Kruscica. The regulations issued by Arlu- kovic parallel almost word for word the decrees issued by Himmler under Adolf Hitler and carried out by Eichmann. On April 30, 1941, only 20 days after Ihe Independent State of Croatia was formed, Artukovic proclaimed "the decree on racial affiliation," which staled what persons were considered Jews. On the same day, April 30, an- olher decree was issued "at the proposal of Ihe Minister of Interior Artukovic on 'Ihe prolec- lion of Aryan blood and the No- nor of the Croatian people'." . Again, on May 6, 1941, Artuko- vic signed a' "regulation forbidding the employment of women in non-Aryan homes." On June 4, 1941, Arlukovic signed "the regulation of the organization and competence of (he racial-political commission." The tasks of this commission ' paralleled .the decree set up in Nazi Germany and were as follows: "To elaborate proposals and drafts relating to racial biology, racial policy, racial hygiene and eugenics." Now In California The purge of the Jewish people was moving in high gear both in Germany, Rumania and Yugoslavia at this time, and on the same day, June 4, Artukovic signed "(he regulalion on changing Jewish last names and identification signs for news." This specified that "persons of the Jewish race are not permitled lo wear the Croatian national colors and Aryan emblems . . . Persons of the Jewish race over the age of 14 must wear signs identifying them as Jews, i:n the form of round tin plates, when outside (heir homes . . . This sign must be worn so that i! can be seen on Ihe lefl side of :he breast," Artukovic also iisued various ordinances which wrmilted (hs seizure and Iheft of Jewish property wilhout prose i! jtion. These decrees, nil on record iri Die war crimes filei, bear (he official signature of ilrtukovic. Nevertheless Arti^kovie is no\r living quielly in suimy California. The story of how he got here and why he is permitted to ro- main here will be told in an early column.
