Tuesday Evening, November 5, I93T THE PHAROS-TRIIUN1 PROORAM FOR lOGANSPOn 1. An Adtqwat* Civic C»nl«r 3, An Ad>qual> S*wngi Dispowl Syittm 1. Suffiiwnl Parking Foeil!ti« Labor and Management The McCIellan committee in the Senate is widely referred to as the labor rackets committee. This loose title fosters the impression that the committee's sole function is to expose racketeering in the ranks of organized labor, and to pinpoint examples of abuse of power by labor leaders. The fact is that the committee's function is much broader and more useful than that. How broad, and how useful, is indicated by the official name of the Mc- CIellan committee: "Select committee to investigate improper activities in labor-management relations." This title underscores the fact, made increasingly clear by recent disclosures an testimony, that some management leaders as well as some trade union leaders are culpable. This is not said by way of easing the pressure on organized labor. It is not said to divert attention from the sickening revelations of fraud and evil-doing • in the house of labor. It is said in an effort to put the whole matter back into the perspective the Senate intended •when it set up the committee. What Senator McClellan and his colleagues are investigating is improper activity in the relationships between labor and management. The guilt of unprincipled labor leaders must not be minimized. It is equally important to the general public, however, that the guilt of management be set forth in equal detail. If sound legislation is to come out of the McCIellan : committee's probing, it must be based on a full and balanced disclosure of the facts; Responsible.leaders in both management and organized labor are the first to agree with this analysis of a situation "' gravely troubling to them all. To Curb City Blight All over the nation, cities and urban towns are recognizing the need to rehabilitate slums and prevent the spread of the blight that attacks-neighborhoods. Officials are becoming increasingly aware that vigorous action in declining neighborhoods can prevent the growth of genuine slum areas and thus save much expense and effort in the future. Communities can do much along these lines through a wise use of their own resources. A tightening in the enforcement of health ordinances and building codes has proved to be effective, especially in neighborhoods that are declining but not yet at the slum stage. Improved appearance is the least oi the benefits that result. Full scale rehabilitation broadens the tax base, reduces fire and police costs, and improves the community in various other ways" The one-time Russian dignitary Molotov having been sunk, his namesake the line Molotov has been renamed the Ballica. IN THE PAST One Year Ago County voters went to the polls in large numbers, despite rainy weather. •Hubert Baker, 79, of 1411 Michigan avenue, died. Burglars broke into the Mel Chapman service, station, 1640 Woodlawn avenue, and stole an undetermined amount of cash. Harry G. Kreamer, 57, a Kewanna farmer, was killed in an auto accident in Winamac. A daughter was bom to Mr. and Mrs. James Mummert, route 1, Cutler, in St. Joseph's hospital. Ten Years Ago Mrs. Helena Wackerie, 48, of Peru, died from Injuries suffered in an auto accident. Burglars entered Joe's Bar-B-Q, 2430 East Market street, and stole a small amount of cash and merchandise. A permanent Navy reoruitin-g office was open•d in the city building. Mrs. Anna MoLochlin, 72, wife of George W. McLochlin, 1201 Spear street, died at St. Joseph's hospital. Drew Pearson'! MERRY-GO-ROUND SPUTNIK, JR. Drew Pearson says: Ike faces super-salesmanship job at NATO meeting; Must persuade allies to let USA control missile bases; Hoffa's Republican friends duck McClcllan probe. WASHINGTON — It looks as if the President's trip to the NATO meeting in Faris is going to be much, more than a hurrah visit to impress our western allies with unity. He and Prime Minister Macmillan have vrorked out a plan for •the United States to set up 40 missile bases in western Europe as the answer to Russia's IOBM. This will b<! thel first step in sup-1 planting land ar-[ mies with push I button warfare. I The plan, whichl has been, under! study in lie Pen-l tagon for somel time, is to rim-1 Russia with mis sile bases capabl: of firing the inter mediate rang mis sile, or IRBM, a ' round 1,5(10 miles. This is the missile developed by the Army at Huntsville,' Ala., regarding which there was so much dispute with the Air Force and which led to the court-martial of Col. John Nickerson. The Intercontinental ballistic missile or IOBM, which Russia has and we haven't, goes 3,000 miles. However, the IBBM, firing 1,500 miles, is effective against Moscow if launched from bases in western Europe. Eisenhower's chief job,"according to the plan now being worked out in the White House, will be to sell our NATO allies that these missile bases should be operated by the United States, not by the smaller nations of Europe. Naturally our NATO allies wall object to having American troops occupying their soil with the right to touch a button which could bring swift retaliation against them from Russia. A touch of the button could also precipitate another world war. Already the smaller nations have been suggesting, if not requesting, that they have these new missiles. This is going to be the very big, very controversial problem in establishing the new bases. For our 'military experts fear that the new missiles, if :;pre"ad around Europe in various hands, could lead to all sorts of eventualities. One push on the button could touch off World War El. And they are afraid some irresponsible commander in some isolated area might provide that push — if these new and terrible weapons are not under '.he direct control of Britain and the United States. It will be Eisenhower's big job to sell this in Paris. Hoffa's GOP Friends Sen. John McCIellan, Democrat of Arkansas, usually gets along beautifully with Republican colleagues—so much so that Democrats sometimes call, him a "Re- publicrat." But he had a teriffic backstage hassle the other day with Republican members of his committee when he wanted to investigate Teamster Boss Jimmy Hoffa. This was just before the Teamster election. At first Republican Senators refused to attend the hearings. Hoffa, of course, is a good Republican Furthermore, Sen. Charles E. Potter df Michigan, also Republican, had been in touch with them, warning that if Hoffa is ousted from power in Michigan, the man w'ao 'will rule Michigan labor ' will be Walter Reuther, Democrat and head of the" United Auto Workers. Senator Potter also charged that McCIellan was picking on Hoffa merely because the latter is a Republican and in order to do a favor to Sen, Jack Kennedy of Massachusetts who wants the Demorcratic Presidential nomination. If Hoffa is eliminated, Potter claimed, it • would help Reuther, who in turn would be expected to show his gratitude by supporting Kennedy for the Democratic nomination. Hoffa had also gone to bat to -try to defeat a fellow labor member, Pat McNamara, Democrat of Detroit, when McNam'ara ran against ex-Sen. Homer Ferguson, Republican.' Despite Hoffa'-s opposition MoNamara won. As a result of Potter's oonfi- Fifty Years Ago Seventeen members of the Logansport high »chool football team were awarded letters. Charles E. Franklin, 62, a Wayne township farmer, died at his home, four miles west of Fulton. Lard was being sold at 25 cents .for two pounds. Mrs. Clinton Tuttle was elected president of St. Lukes Lutheran Aid Society. Fire destroyed a barn belonging to Charles Overmyer Hatchery, 212 East Sixth street in Rochester. dential wire-pulling, only one Republican Senator turned up for the McCIellan investigation. Mc- CIellan telephoned every Republican — including Senators Ives of New York, Goldwater of Arizona, who is considered a labor- baiter by most labor leaders; and Curtis of Nebraska, also anti- labor. All of them flatly refused to come to Washington. Only Sen. Karl Mundt of South Dako- to reluctantly gave in. Note: It's considered significant that the only member of the AFL- CIO hierarchy who went to bat for Hoffa has been Maurice Hutcheson, head of the Carpenters' Union and a stanch Republican. Hutcheson also has boon under scrutiny for taking the Fifth Amendment. He refused to answer question regarding land which he mysteriously purchased just before it was to be repurchased for a federal highway. George Meany laid down the rule that anyone pleading the Fifth Amendment would not remain in -good labor graces, but he hasn't applied this to Hutcheson. Texas Boast Mrs. Fred Vinson, lovely widow of the late Chief Justice, tells a story about a fellow Kentuckian who was bragging to a Texan about the gold in Fort Knox. "Why, there is enough gold down in those vaults to build a fence clean around Texas," boasted the Kentuckian, "Well, you go ahead and build it," drawled the Texan, "and If we like it we'll buy it." Population of Indiana Set At 4,546,000 INDIANAPOLIS <UP)_ — Indiana's present population is figured at about 4,546,000 persons, a gain of more than 500,000 over the 1950 U.S. census. The Census Bureau reported in Washington Sunday night that the state's population July 1, 1956, was about 4,436,000, up 12.8 .per cent over the 3,934,224 counted in the last decennial census in 1950. The bureau did not go beyond that. But it did say that the nation's estimated population July 1 last year was 168,174,000 and the estimated present population is 172,400,000. That would be a gain of about 214 per cent in a little more than a year. Applying the WL per cent national gain to the Indiana figure, the present population would be about 4,546,000, or about I'lO.OOO above the July, 1956, estimate. LAFF-A-DAY Twenty Years Ago Electric lights were installed' in the Nelson theater and work on the interior was; being completed. Arthur M Cullen, 27, of 1230 Miami avenue, died. Mary E. Maudlin and John J. Hill, both of t Logansport, were married. Cass county roads were reported to be in fcetter condition than ever, with a large amount of money being spent for improvements. Angelo Patri Fundamentals Taught in Kindergarten Bunny went to kindergarten when school opened this fall term. He seemed delighted with himself •and everybody else but he said nothing about what he did in school and his mother tried to get him to tell, her about his day there. "What did you learn today?" Bunny jumped a cracked in the sidewalk and forgot to answer. "Bunny, what did you learn in school today? What did you do?" "Play." "Didn't you do anything but play? Surely you did something else. Did you paint?" "Nope." "Did you make something out of clay?" "Nope." "Didn't you sing a song?" "The kids did but not me." "Why didn't you?" NCI answer as he jumped two cracte and landed in a little puddle. When (bis happens, and it is likely to, mothers wonder what the children are in knderg-arten for anyway. First, these little ones cannot as yet talk in connected sentences. They do not organize their thoughts so cannot marshal them to express them neatly ar.d in storyline order. It is easier for them to say "Nope," and forget all about it when asked what they did and if they did. Then kindergarten is not like the grades where children can hold their attention for minutes on end on a specific task. These little ones have short spans of attention. They cannot sit still too long but must have some active exercises. They sing -songs, do "rhymes," use simple musical instruments; look at pictures and talk about them, use toys and talk about- Shem. They call it plaiy but it is not play for the teacher. For her it is serious business: preparation for the first grade. . '•• '. ' it is in kindergarten that the children are made ready for reading. They talk about what they see and do, handle pictures and associate words with them. They gather experiences about things, animals, people by going on short excursions to see specific things of interest value and do all this in association with other children. This association is important at this stagu. These little ones usually stay, close to their mothers for the first five years and know too little about playing and working with a group of children. The group teach feach other many things that the teacher would find difficult to instill — good fellowship, helpfulness, techniques, skills and a letting go of self so that there is an outgoing of the spirit which is what matures the child in mini and body. • . Kindergarten is very much worthwhile. The children do learn. They caE it play but the teacher knows it is worth-while work.

Denied Permission To Hunt, Boy Shoots, Kills State Trooper READING, Pa. OUP) — A 16- year-old youth, irked at being forbidden to go hunting, shot and killed a state trooper Sunday after threatening his own parents and disarming three other officers. The youth, William Clayton Henderson, gave himself up to state police after shooting Phillip Melley, 43, a veteran of 20 years on the force who was due to retire next month. Troopers Thomas McCann and- John Devine and Constable Irwin De Haven were summoned to the boy's home by his parents after he had threatened them and left the house in a rage carrying a .12 gauge shotgun. The three began a search of a nearby wooded section known as 'Rattlesnake Hill but the youth crept up behind Devine with his gun, disarmed him and then the other two when they appeared. Young Henderson ordered Devine to handcuff McCann to a tree. He then made De Haven lie on the ground and handcuffed Devine to the tree. Melley had joined the search in civilian clothing and saw the boy handcuff his fellow troopers. He inched his way toward, the boy without being seen. When he was less than three feet away, he lunged at the boy and the youth blasted him point blank, the witnesses said. The charge struck instantly. ' Henderson threw the gun down and ran about 15 yards toward his home as De Haven jumped up and ran for help. The youth turned around and came back, telling the two handcuffed officers he was going 1 to give himself up. He freed them and they grabbed him.
