The Pharos-Tribune Editorial Comment. We're Too Busy to Rest Since 1850, the average work week in this country has dropped from 70 hours to about 39, Government statistics show. But there has not been a gain'o'f 31 hours in free time for the average American. Many live so far away, from their .job, it takes eight to ten hours a week ,-to get to work. ' Moonlighting—holding a second or several other jobs—is the use made of .this free time by one in 20 wage earners. Eighty per cent of interior paint- •ing and 60 per cent of exterior painting is done by nonprofessionals, who use their off-time to do it. Miscellaneous work .around the house uses up at least 5 per cent more of idle time. These and other factors cut free time to a few hours a week, Dr, Se- ^bastian de Grazia, Professor of Political Science at Rutgers University, con- 'cludes. He headed a' research team studying leisure for the Twentieth Century Fund. The results have just been published in a book titled, '/Of Time, Work and Leisure." . "Leisure is the state of being free -pf everyday necessity," he defines. ."The man in that state is at leisure and whatever he does is done leisurely." But in this country, leisure is 'the life of thinkers, artists, musicians, whoever wants to build beautiful things or do whatever he wants to do for no more than the satisfaction of doing it. The truth is, the bill-ridden American, harried by the clock, is too busy to enjoy leisure. Nor do the prescriptions of philosophers and political scientists fulfill his needs. His ancestor may have worked twice as many hours in a week, but he had faith to turn to for strength and to refresh his soul. That is what we have lost in the transition to less work time. MONTH OF BRIDES—AND NEUROSES Canada's Confused Politics The failure of either of the major Canadian political parties to wiri a majority of Parliament, forcing Prime Minister John Dief'enbaker to rely on the splinter Social Credit party to form a minority government, is due to confuse Canadian politics and Taring on a new general election shortly. The "funny money" party, as the Social Crediters have been called, gave notice they will not enter a caolition but will cooperate on such essential legislation as the budget and appropriations until another election clarifies matters. f The election was a disappointment all around. Diefenbaker's Conservatives dropped from their commanding majority of 203 of the 265 seats in the last Parliament to'a lame 118, 15 short, of a majority. Lester Pearson's' Liberals rose from 51 to 96 seats, far short of the control they sought. Social Credit, which governs Columbia .and Alberta in the far West, surprised with 30 seats. The New Democrats, a farmer-labor party, took 19 seat's. The splintering of the Conservatives' losses deprived the Liberals of a chance to return to power, since the country switched in 1958, on-Dieferi- baker's hostility to the United' States. He did not lash out against this country until almost the close of this campaign, when he charged the United States interefered in Canadian domestic affairs. But this trumped-up issue had lost its appeal.

Pharos™^ Flashes By Pharos-Tribune News Staff Frank Filbey tells a hair raising story about'the narrow escape his •wife, Helen, had a week ago when a power mower threw a stone with almost bullet force completely through .his cottage at Nyona lake. Their son, Robert, 23, was operating the mower in the back yard' and Mrs. Filbey was ironing in the living room when she thought .she heard an explosion. She called her husband, who was outside. He found a hole the size of a golf ballin the kitchen window more than 6 feet above the ground and glass in the kitchen sink. Later Robert saw glass on the glider on the patio at the front of the house and discovered a similar hole in the front window and a hole of ths same size in the cloth curtain. Still wedged in the slats of the awning outside the living room was the oblong shaped rock. It had gone through the kitchen, dining room and living room, missing Mrs. Filbey's head by only eight inches. Logansport employment rose more than five per cent during the two-months period ending in mid-May. Two hundred sixty-three workers were added to payrolls of the 23 -major establishments in the Logansport area. This compares to the two per cent increase shown during) the previous reporting period when only 90 additional workers were reported. Ten of the twelve major manufacturing employers reported increases in employment. Electrical equipment and rubber and plastics showed the greatest gains. The total increase in manufacturing amounted to a gain of nine per cent in the past two months. A decline in Ihe transportation industry accounted for a decease of about one per' cent among the eleven non : manufacturing employers. All other non-manufacturing fields were steady, Present employment of the 23 'reporting firms is more than twelve per cent above that of a year.ago. Almost air of the gain has been in' the manufacturing industries which show an increase of almost nineteen per cent compared to May 1961. The nonwnanufacturing industries show-, an increase of one per cent for the' same period, The employment of women increase almost twelve per cent in the past two months and is over nineteen per cent above that of a year ago.

The recent Emmy awards were cowardly about the matter' — hedging and putting the two programs into a separate, honorary classification. The throbbing ladies who wait anxiously each week to be sneered '.at by "Ben Casey" will be, saddened to know that, as at the Emmy awards, their favorite show was beaten by another top series — this time by "Bonanza." "Casey," instead, was chosen as the favorite) new series, and, as expected,- its monotone hero, Vincent Edwarils, was named favorite male performer. Sunday night's winners were chosen on the basis of their popularity with TV guide readers, who sent in ballots. It was worth watching Sunday night's show if only to catch Art Carney's wildly funny . imitation of Jack Paar - at home. Others in the sketch included a .newsboy named Hugh and a visiting couple named Kennedy. Mrs. Kennedy told Paar (Carney) she thought he should have been nominated for an award. "I like you," he replied. Unfortunately, Dave G a r r o- way's hosting and,other, sketches by Carney and Judy Holliday were too often tepid, mired by deadly, slow-paced direction and inferior material — most of it about video viewers. Garroway may have been a little nervous in .his first big return to television, to which he is cer-. tainly welcome back. The comic Miss Holliday broke the ice- every so often with a funny bit. In one skit in which her fiance is absorbed by television, she explodes: "I hate E. G. Marshall ... and I hope Hazel gets fired!" In another award, Carol Burnett was named favorite female performer. My wife liked that, but she didn't' care for the Glenn- Mrs, Kennedy decision. She says if she were President, she'd can- eel her subscription to TV Guide. Monday Evening, June 25,-1962.

Sullivan and his wife Sylvia sat in the audience during the tribute, which roasted him wonderfully. And one of the secrets 1o his success was • obvious by •watching , his reactions: He simply loves the entertainment'busi- ness — but with a professional love. There were fine sight gags — including one by Miss Ball, who made a sentimental speech and then was shown exiting on an elephant.

One of them is Andrija Artuko- vic, sometimes called the "Himmler of Yugoslavia" who served as Minister of Interior for Killer's puppet state of Ustasha Crotia during World War II. Its function was to exterminate from Crotia the Jews and Serbs—the latter largely members of the Orthodox church. Documentary evidence indicates that at least 670,000 were murdered though some surveys place the figure nearer 1,000,000. Irrefutable evidence exists that Minister of the Interior Artukovic signed the decrees paving the way for this massacre. But toward the : end of the war, he escaped from Yugoslavia with Nazi help, went to Austria, then to Ireland, and on July 16, 1948, smuggled himself into New York under the assumed name of Alois Anich. Immigration authorities at (he time had no idea they were admitting a man who had been officially accused as one of the top war criminals of Europe. And ever since then attempts have been made, some of them rather feeble, to get him out of the United States. Instead, Artukovic remains living quietly near Long Beach, Calif., and for a time brazenly listed his name in the phone book —Plymouth 5-1147. He was then living at 13305 South San Pedro. "Pistols, Axes, Hammers" Reason for the frustration in attempting to deport Artukovic is that he has become the center of a high-pressure lobbying campaign by well-meaning . people who have no idea of the enormity of his war crimes. Some of his lobbyist defenders are Croalians living in the Los Angeles area who still bear bitterness against the Serbs and have allowed this prejudice to color, their sense of justice. What they don't know is that Artukovic personally signed all the decrees as previously itemized in this column. Eichmann industrialized mass murder. Artukovic's henchmen used brute force. Here is the testimony of Ljubo Milors, one of his executioners, taken from the war crimes records: "In November and December 1941 mass execution began. As far as I can remember during those two months, two or three groups of Serbs from Kordun I think were liquidated between Jasenovac and Kosutarica. Pistols and axes but mostly hammers were used for the executions. "I don't remember the exact date, but I think it was the end of 1941 or early 1942 when Lu- bric's instructions to liquidate all sick, weak and those unfit, arrived from Zagreb." "When we reached Velebrit, Ventura led the prisoners two by two to the edge of a pit, killed them and threw their bodies : f.. Then Ventura called us to come. We each killed a prisoner. When we had all done our share, Ventura took a sword and killed all the rest. The person who killed the prisoner had to throw his body into the pit. "Ventura stood beside the pit and forced each of us to drink blood." Mean Well, But Uninformed These are some of the terrible facts which the well-meaning, uninformed people who have been lobbying to keep Artukovic in the United States haven't bothered to check. These pressure groups have been loudest in the Los Angeles area where U. S. Judge Pierson Hall ruled July 14, 1952, that Arlukovic could not be extradited by Yugoslavia because its extradition treaty had lapsed. Judge Hall, a politically minded Democrat, made, this ..ruling des- pite the fact: that Secretary of State Achescm had advised otherwise. When the rase went up to the' U. S, Court ci 1 Appeals, it reversed Judge Hall, aild the U. S. Supreme Court sustaii'isd the reversal. The Supreme. Cmirt ordered, Jan. .20, 1958, (hat exlradition hearings be held. They were lield June 16, 1958, by U. S. Commissioner Theodore Hocke in Los- Angeles who ruled on Jan. 15, 11159, that "absolutely no evidence ' was presented that ihe defendant' himself committed murder." Hooke reasoned thai the evidence agilinst Artukovic was in the form of documents. This referred to the many official decrees he signed inciting religious discrimination and prejudice. But, said Commissioner Hocke, no live witnesses teslified against him. They couldn't; they were all dead.
