Monday Evening, November 4, THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE PROORAM FOR IOQANSPORT I An Adiquon Civic C*nl«r 2. An Adequat* Sewage Dupotal Syttim 3. Sulfiicant Parking racilltiei - Wishful Thinking ; As usual, confused and contradictory ,-reactions were reported from Washing•'ton following the news of Marshal Zhu- kov's dismissal from his post as Soviet minister of defense. The changes in the ruling Russian clique always seems to /catch our experts and officials with their wishful thinking down. Marshal Zhukov received a big buildup in this country. It 'was obviously hoped that he could be talked with, and that he would serve as a moderating in- .fluence on the Soviet-party. Now, unless '•the signs are wrong, another dream has gone up in bubbles of official confusion. . In Soviet Russia there is an established system, with the party in power. Russian ministers do not gain posts on the basis of popularity contests. Leon Trotsky was infinitely more popular than Stalin. Also, he was more popular after Lenin's death than Marshal Zhukov was following the death of Stalin, But Trotsky lost. He was exiled and, eventually Kiurdered. : It would seem, as a few knowledgeable commentators .have already suggested, that along with the inner-clique struggle in the Kremlin, the party is becoming the state, openly and without any facades. The party has been superior to the military, and the Red army was developed by the party and under party control. No signs from Russia suggested that the situation was evolving so that there could be the rise of a Napoleon in tiie traditional sense of Bonapartism. It appears that numerous American journalists and officials have engaged in wish- fulfillment with respect to Zhukov. The Small Colleges A college whose interesting history is not widely known has been celebrating its 175th birthday. This is Washington College of Chesterfield, Md., the oldest college in that state. . Its name is not its only link with George Washington. He was one o.£ its benefactors, and served as its trustee. In 1739, at the beginning of his presidency, .he received here the first honorary de- -gree given to any president - ; Small colleges like Washington can- 'not spread as rich an educational feast ;as larger institutions, but they may of- _fer fare equally nutritious and attrac- 'tive. Such colleges should ponder words .spoken at the celebration by Dr. Theodore A. Distler, an executive of the Association of American Colleges. Dr. Distler reminded his hearers that education is not meant to prepare capable wage earners, but good men and women. It is a high ideal that the nation's small colleges can play a major role in fulfilling. Some Eastern states are trying to solve the problem of "tipsy teen-age driving." Doubtless it is just one phase of the- topsy-turvy driving bothering all the states. . IN THE PAST One Year Ago Local boy scouts were conducting -a "get- ou'-the-vote" campaign in Cass and neighboring counties.

Drew Pearson's MERRY-CO-ROUND 'OH, TAKE ME OUT TO THE BALL GAME!' Drew Pearson Says: Zhukov visit to Washington might have changed Kremlin history; Secretary Dulles talked Ike out of chumminess with I5hukov; Allen. Dulles caught napping by Moscow moves. WASHINGTON. —State department officiate who know the inside of how their ohief, John Foster Dulles, persuaded* President Eisen-1 hower not to in vite Marshal Zhu-l kov to Washing-1 ton last summer,! figure that his-l tory inside the! Kremlin might I be entirely ciH-f ferent today i.l Dulles's persua-i sion had not pre ] vailed. A trip by Zhu-l fcov to Washington would have so enhanced his prestige with the Russian people that he could not have been demoted. What happened was that last summer the President definitely wanted to invite his old wartime .buddy to Washington for -a talk on improvement o:: Russian-American relations. This was reported by this column <n Aug. 25, 1956 . and later confirms*! by the President in a press conference. But Dulles talked the President out of the meeting. At that time both Chancellor . Adenauer of Germany and the British were worried about any moves which looked like too much friendship between the USA and USSR, and any side-deals on disarmament. Har-old Stassen in. London had been talking disarmament with the Russians privately, and the British and Germans protested to Dulles. So the Secretary of State, fearing the President would get to chummy with Marshal Zhukov if he came to "Washington, persuaded the President not to issue the invitation. CIA Caught Napping Allen Dulles, younger brother of the Secretary of State and head of Central Intelligence, has been more right than wrong in ferreting out backstage events in Europe. But he was caught completely off base in the showdown between Marshal. Zhukov and Party Chief Nikita Khrushchev. About two days before Zhukov was relieved, Allen had sent a report to the White House expressing the view that Zhukov was coming up fast and might head a new military dictatorship in six month;;. He had grabbed the secret police, Allen Dulles said, and seemed sure to take over Khrushchev's job. Last month, furthermore, the CIA Chief, speaking in, San Francisco, made an unusual public statement that Russia was disrupted by political cross-currents and that Khrushchev seemed headed for trouble. On one basic point, of course, Allen Dulles was right. Zhukov was grabbing for power. But what Dulles underestimated was Khrushchev's ability to cope with this. He also overestimated the political power of the Red Army. Secret Meeting -on 'Cruiser— As far as can be pieced together, here arc the inside facts which caused Khruschch'ev to move in on the man who had helped him save his job when he faced rebellion from Molotov, Malenkov Et al last spring. Shortly before Marshal Zhukov left for Yugoslavia he held a secret meeting aboard the Russian cruiser Kuibyshev at Sevastopol, the .great Soviet submarine base in the Black Sea. Present were the top military commanders of the Red Army. Zhukov is reported to have told them that he was opposed to any military adventures in the Near East which would risk bringing • Russia into conflict with the United States. He was not against political moves in the Near East, but he was against. any. risk of war. He further told Soviet commanders that Russia, should concentrate on consolidating its position at horoe, not strike out in the Near East. Zhukov a'iso wanted to tighten Russian control over . the Satellites. As a military man, he viewed Poland, Czechoslovakia, Hungary and Bulgaria as buffer • states which would absorb the first brunt of attack in case of war. He did not agree with Khrushchev's more lenient policy toward Poland and the Satellites, and it will be recalled that it was Zhukov who cracked down on Hungary last year with the full force of the Red Army. It is already known that Zhu- kov had bucked the Soviet commissars attached to the Red Army for the purpose of keeping the military from dominating the Communist Party. .He wanted to decrease their power. All this apparently was too much for Khrushchev, and when the secret meeting at Sevastopol came to his attention, the head of the Communist Party moved, while Zhukov was in Belgrade, to plan to promote him upstairs to an innocuous but face-saving post. Zhukov refused. Hence the showdown inside the Kremlin. Note—Marshal Zhukov is given credit for getting Tito to extend Yugoslav recognition to East Germany. Since Tito was looked upon as the leader of Independence among the Satellites, his recognition of East Germany was a real retreat for him and a victory for Zhukov's policy o£ a tight ring of Satellite Nations around Russia. President Eisenhower's bridge and business partner, George Allen, .is quite upset over Ike's sagging popularity. Allen is a professional Presidential crony, who has been a White House inmate oE Presidents Roosevelt, Truman and Eisenhower. Perhaps it's sardonic humor, but lately, Allen has been complaining to friends that Ike takes too much of his time. Always alert lor the future, Allen has placed a big, new picture in his office—an autographed photo o£ Vice Pre.sid.Bnt Nixon . . .If the Democrats take off their gloves in investigating Ike's Sputnik and ICBM failuers, the Republicans will retaliate that the Truman Administration failed to start missle reseach soon enough. The • Democrats, in turn, will point out. that during the Truman Administration Dwight D. Einsenhower was Chief of Staff, later commander of NATO. They will ask. what General Eisenhower did about missies at that time . . . Refugees from behind the Bamboo Curtain report that the Chinese Communists are putting college students to work as field hands and. street cleaners—apparently because there are no other jobs for them. Ban Sales Of Boohs FORT WAYNE ('UP)-(Prosecutor Glen Beams tod-ay .imposed ban on the sale of "Peyton Place," a best-selling book he termed "lewd and indecent." LAFF-A-DAY Angelo Patri Help Teener By Listening To Problems Young people in their early teens are uncomfortable in mind: and body. Their feelings are vague so they cannot place them nor can they find words that -truly express them. This is likely to meke them incomprehensible to parents and teachers who are doing their best to keep them, growing happily. "No matter how hard we try to understand him. the result is- the same. He seems to resent our best efforts. He isn't siok; he is intelligent, yet he often acts as if we. hated him when we are trying to find out what he wants, or what ails him. He's so impatient." The probabilities are he doesn't knew what ails him and that is at the bottom of his irritating behavior. This requires careful listening on the part of the older peo-' pie. Usually this young person is worrying about something—such as his ability to hold his own, what the future holds for him, how he is to learn to support himself, what . kind of girl he is to marry, what God means. A thousand questions rise in the minds of these young people for which they have no . answers, not even words to express them. If an experienced parent or teacher listens carefully to what the angry boy or girl says when control is lost and words are hurled at unolfending heads, often there is a clue to the discontent and the parent or teacher can. catch it and make use of it constructively. "Of course 1'ini too stupid to understand what goes on under my nose. You think I'm too dumb to be trusted enough to know about money." Or "Everybody else's parents show some mterest in a fellow. But me-Oh, .no: I'm just in the way so it's go here and go there. You'll see. I'll .go and I won't come back either. Or: "All • I want is a little co-operation, a little chance to do some one little thing I want to do in peace. Can I do it? Just try in this house-" Any good listener can find a clue to what is bothering this young person most at the time and .can do something to assure him. The little one can do for these children who are undergoing great stress in mind and body should be done. They -need a little extra attention, a 'bit more thoughtful-' ness as to their comfort and pleasure. They will respond and life will be somewhat easier for them and their elders. Even with the best one can do . for young people in. this sta-ge of •development there will be irrita-' tions ar.d outbursts. Soon they will pass so be patient and listen more, Not only is your voice important, so in your conversation, as Dr. Patrl explains in his leaflet )P-21, "How To Talk to Baby."

Ike And Nixon Set High-level GOP Session Report Pressure On President F'or Conservative Aims WASHINGTON (UP)-President Eisenhower and Vice President Richard M. Nixon-will get together with other Republican leaders for a high-level GOP policy re- View next month. The meeting was called at the same time that there were reports the President has come under considerable pressure to adopt a more conservative legislative program next year. Informants said some influential Congressional Republicans have warned him he will get less cooperation from GOP congressmen unless he does so. Republican National Chairman Meade Alcorn announced Sunday night he has called a meeting here of the Republican National Committee for Dec. 6. The 72- member executive committee will hold a session the day before. The leaders probably will assess, among other things, the political impact of Russia's recent satellite-missile triumphs, the Little Rock, Ark., integration dispute, the state of the nation's economic health and the rise in living costs. Alcorn said the main purpose of the meetings will be to obtain "a frank appraisal of the status o£ the Republican Party and its organization. " Eisenhower also will meet with GOP congressional leaders at the White House in December to discuss 'his 1958 legislative plans. GOP sources said some Republican leaders will make a strong protest at the meeting unless the President takes a more conservative tack. Eisenhower is being urged, informants said; to hold his budget below last year's $7|1-,800,000,000 spending proposals, to curtail new federal spending programs and to drop his federal school aid program.' Alcorn said Eisenhower was invited to confer off the record with national committee members at a Dec. 6 breakfast session "and he has enthusiastically accepted." He said Nixon will meet With committeemen at a luncheon the same day. 53 MOSLEMS KILLED (PARIS ('UP) — Algerian nationalists killed 53 of their fellow Moslems in Paris last month and wounded 77 more, police reported today. The figures set a new monthly record for slayings and beatings among the big Algerian population here. In October of last year gang wars between rival Alg R r i a n nationalist movements caused 14 deaths and 87 injuries in the entire French mainland.
