THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE PROGRAM FOR LOGANSPORT 1. An Adequate Civic Center 2. An Adequate Sewage Disposal System 3. Sufflicont Parking Facilities Barrier to College Time was when almost any student with the financial means could expect to go to college. That is no longer the case, as many high school graduates will find this spring. Rising pressure on the nation's facilities for higher education are making it increasingly difficult for students to get in, especially students whose hearts are set on particular schools. In a sense, this is not a bad thing. As entrance requirements are forced higher by the pressure of demand, the less capable students will be culled out. Higher scholastic standards may raise the general level of our college population. Yet the situation is a sad and troublesome one for those students who, though they were careless about scholastic achievement in high school, have a basic ability that would enable them to profit by a college education. The situation may well become worse before it gets better. Our school population is rising faster than our college facilities—and, even more important, faculties — can be developed to meet its need. This has come about just at a time when the urgent need for more and more skilled people, especially in science and engineering, is generally apparent. The challenge to our society is clear, [f we are able to provide college training only for the cream of the scholastic crop, we will soon encounter serious shortages in skilled personnel. We can no longer be casual about the nation's college facilities. They must be expanded vigorously and systematically, and good faculty people must be developed to man the teaching posts. Otherwise, college training will be denied to many who should have it, both tor their own sakes and for the sake of society as a whole. Leap Year is past now, and those bachelors who didn't leap fast enough will have years to reflect on their tactical blunders. • ' A friend recalls the Christmas when he hurt his wife's feelings by mistaking the ribbon on the package for the tie that was wrapped inside.

Drew Pearson Says: Battle of Budget is for control of Republican Party; Regular Republicans advised Ike not to fight hard; Palace guard urged him to pull no punches on TV. WASHINGTON. — President Eisenhower has to win two battles when he faces the nation on TV tonight. No. 1 is the obvious battle of the budget. No. 2 is the battle which GOP leaders understand much better than Ike—for control of the Republican Party. If Ike loses his round with Congress over Foreign Aid and the budget, then the "Regular Republicans" take over. They know this, and that's one reason they are fighting so hard and why they don't want him to fight hard. It's also why the palace guard is trying to get Ike to fight hard. They know, and have been telling the President that, if lie loses this round, "Modern Republicanism" is dead. He can kiss good-bye any idea of remaking the Republican Party in his own image. The White House staff began telling newsmen and Congressmen even while the President was in Augusta that he was going to battle for the budget. They may well have done so before fully consulting the President, for at that time he was still being very palsy with the man who first pulled the rug out from under his budget, George Humphrey. However, the .While House staff knew far belter than the President that when you lose one big battle on Capi'.ol Hill, the rest nf your battles are likely to be lost for the next four years. Goltly Likes Ike—But Sen. Barry Goldwntcr of Arizona, most vociferous of the "Regular Republicans," telephoned the While House the other day. "I like Ike," he protested, "hut don't let him go on television. The people arc not for him on the budget. The reaction will break his heart." Almost as soon as he hung up, Goldwatcr began cussing out the man whoso heart he didn't want to break. He talked about 19!ifl whon "We" are going to gel. control. Uu pointed lo the fact that most of Ihe Republican Senators up for re-election in 1958 aru Conservatives. Only two or three modern Republicans are up for re-election. "And," he said, looking further ahead, "we're going lo capture control with Knowland in l%0." He referred to the backing which Regular Republicans are organizing for Sen. Dill Knowland for President in 19fiO. Note — Regular Republicans are already working lo replace Knowland whon he retires from the Senate next year with Conservative Sen. Kvcretl Dirkscn of Illinois as Republican leader. They arc determined not to have an I^isenhower Republican as GOP leader of the Senale. When Republican leaders cal'.nd on Ike for their regular huddle last week they cautioned him not to attack the sincerity of Congress when he appeared on TV. They urged M temperate talk. They didn't use these exact words, but what they really wanted was that Ike make no appeal such us Roosevelt so effectively made over the heads of Congress to force Con- gross to pass his program. Obviously they wore thinking of the parly battle, not the President, when they gave this advice. Foe I ho only way Ike can win is to call on the voters to retaliate against Congressmen who put dollars i\head of the nation's welfare. Sherman Adams, who knows what the score is, has been giving just the opposite advice of GOP leaders. But he's had a hard time keeping Ike in line. Ike is not one who likes lo tangle with Congress, He was eloquent, however, at the recent meeting wilii Congressional loaders of both parlies. Usually, the President opens these closed-door sessions by making a brief statement, then turning things over lo Secretary Dulles. This time he delivered the longest talk ever given to Congressional leaders. Some Democrats called it "spirited," "impassioned." One Regular Republican described it as "humdrum—so doggnned mo- THAT5 WHAT HE THOUGHT. 1 notonous I didn't pay much attention." Only real controversy was raised my Sen. Dick Russell (D., Ga.), who objected to Ike's proposed $500 million cut in Foreign Aid as a "paper cut." Russell claimed that Foreign Aid was not being cut, but simply transferred to the defense budget. He charged that the same military equipment is still being readied for shipment overseas, paid for out of defense funds, nol Foreign Aid funds. Secretary of Defense Wilson assured Russell that there actually was a C'.it in military assistance. Wilson's new deputy, Donald Quarlcs, broke in with a technical explanation to support Wilson. Then Assistant Secretary of De- lenso Mansfield Spraguo joined in trying to satisfy Russell. But Russell made il clear he wasn't satisfied. The President reiterated that the main reason for the saving was boiler management. "Mr. President," replied Russell, "I hope you are able to ir.culcato that idea in the Defense Department. That department could use bel'.er management in my opinion." Al (he very end, Speaker Sam Rayhurn remarked: "Well, Mr. President, I don't see any preparation around here for lunch, so I guess we'll jusl go." I'.lisenhowor smiled and dismissed the group. Protests UN Aid To Kadar Regime WASHINGTON (UP)—Sen. Roman L. Hruska (R-Neb.) complained today that the Hungarian mission of the Food and Agriculture Organization is shoring up the Communist government of dicla- 'lor Janos Kadar. In a loiter to Robert C. Hill, assistant secretary of state for congressional relations, Mr.ii.ska said the secretariat of Ihe U.N. group 'had "no authority whatsoever" lo spend FAO money on the Hungarian program. Hru.sk'a said the program's aim is lo "prop up Ihe agricultural, economy." FOIIMEU IIJ I'KOFESSOIl DIES BLOOM I NO'TON (UP >—Funeral services for Robert E.

LAFF-A-DAY Angelo Patri Failing Child Needs Faith Of Teacher Every term end the teachers are distressed about the reorganization of their classes. Should this one go ahead? This one be held back? What would be bcsl for the child? The decisions are difficult to make. When a pupil has no 1 ;, for one reason or another, completed enough of the grade work to enable him to build the next grade's work on it, he should not be asked to lake on the advanced work. He will be swamped by the end of the first week and thereafter be miserable in Ihe knowledge lhal he is failing. So will the teacher. That combination is bad for all concerned. What is lo be done about the left-back pupil? II is clear that he needs hcip, otherwise he would nol have failed. Clear too, that unless .something can be done to lighten bis feeling of imfilness, he will bog down spiritually and that is about Ihe worst that can happen •to a school child. Usually '-hi.s child is proficient In some siibjccls, or al least can manage lo keep his head above the failing level. If he is programmed so thai he- can go ahead in Ihose subjects while he takes the ones be failed in with the lower grade, he will do much bettor. He will lie likely lo catch up on •his weak lessons and keep even with the advanced one. 1 ; and maybe, if things go well, be promoted on the upper grade level at the end of the following term. What the failing child needs most is hope. If h-c sees the way open for him he will have Hie spiritual power to gel down to work and accomplish something. Usually when an intelligent child fails he was oilher unready for Ihe subject, and time will cure that, or lie lost time for some reason. Again time and instructions will cure that. But he must have thai: hope. He must feel the faith of his lonelier and his parents buoying him. I would never leave a pupil back- al. term end without his full and • free consent, without this special programming. Very seldom is this necessary in n well-conducted school. Tho teacher knows early •in the term that certain pupils are nol: progressing on schedule and •lakes steps to attend lo (lie situation. Only occasionally will a pupil, intelligent and able, fail a grade completely. Usually he has certain slrcnglhs and Ihesc are acknowledged and the pupil encouraged by the very use of the special program. * * * Bnby learns about the world and Ills fnirroiiiulinKH from Ills carrl- nifr..

Bow got a shock recently A'hen he found Uial one of his constituents thought federal spending should be increased—not cut. Bow was so slarlled, in facl, he immediately conducted an investigation. TJ-.Q constituent, answering a questionnaire Bow is distributing in his district on the federal budget situation, wrote: "The country is being run by penny-pinch minds. The public debt should be increased, nol decreased. Why must people be so stupid 1 '" Bow said he figured at first one of the questionnaires bad fallen into Ihe hands of an official of tlie Commerce or Slate departments. Bow is a member of the House Appropriations subcommittee which sharply cut the budget for those agencies. But he said his investigation .showed Uial it came from a citizen in Stark County, Ohio, "who sincerely believes we should be spending more." He said he has received "several thousand" of the questionnaires "urging economy, meat-axe budget cuts, and across-l!ic-boa':-d reductions." Only the one called for increases. Symington Charges Waste of Manpower KANSAS CITY (UP) — Sen. Stuart Symington accused the Eisenhower administration today of "squandorini;" manpower by •failing to overhaul pay scales far military specialists. The Missouri Democrat, former secretary of the air force, accused the administration of "pigcon- liokling" recommendations of a special sludy commission headed by industrialist Ralph J. Cordiner. •Symington said the proposals would save the taxpayers "billions." The Cordiner committee, in a recent report to Defense Secretary •Charles 12. Wilson, proposed a "modern" compensation plan to jjay military personnel on tlie basis of the value of their services iralhcr than seniority. Wilson praised the report but ordered inlo effect only a proviso affording pay raises for SAO.OOO skilled military personnel under a "proficiency" plan.

Precautions Taken For Nevada A-Tests WASHINGTON (UP) - Tho Atomic Energy Commission announced loday il will lake unusual precautions during the forthcoming Nevada nuclear lests Lo "hold public exposure to (radioactive) fallout as near zero as possible." At least one shot will be fired in an underground tunnel. Other lest weapons will be suspended from anchored balloons to prevent their •fireballs from touching the ground —the source of much radioactive fallout. Only "low yield" devices will be fired,, and only when weather conditions are ideal for limiting fallout. As a result of Ihose and other "improved controls," the A E C said, "radioactive fallout in the area around Ihe lest site is expected to be even lower than the levels which have resulted from previous tests in Nevada.
