IHE PHAROS-TRIBUNE PROGRAM f OR LOSANSPOKT 1. An Achquoli Civic Cw»«r 2. An Adiqunt* Siwag* Disposal Sydtm & Suffiic«nt Parkins Facilities FROM OTHER PAPERS— Speed Takes a Back Seat Traffic safety experts throughout the country were happy to h'ear the resolve of the big motor makers in Detroit to de- emphasize speed and stress safety in their products from here on out. A couple of seasons ago, the Ford Motor Co. ventured admirably to highlight safety features of its cars—safety belts, cushioned dashboards, special steering wheel, and safety latches designed to keep doors from springing open in a crash. As it now turns out, this was an enlightened example of good sense and foresight. But at the time the promotion of safety didn't seem to catch on too well. The result: all the manufacturers turned to stressihg speed and power harder than ever. They entered cars in racing competitions and sought to outdo" each other at the track and on the advertising drawing boards. To their high credit, they realized the risky road they were traveling in a period when accident fatalities are at a high level and threatening to mount higher. The auto industry's new position is especially meaningful because the so- called "horsepower" race of recent years had put great stress on building—and ' promoting—a car that could show its exhaust pipe to competitors. Average auto horsepower has been rising at about' 30 h.p. a year for the past three years and now is about 225. Ford and Chevrolet will have more powerful engines in their 1958 models, but if the resolution is observed there will be less talk about power outside dealer literature and service manuals. If the racing ban does prove effective, it probably .will be due to three factors: Increasing cost of maintaining race cars, public protests against emphasis on speed and congressional criticism of the horsepower race. "It's the real McCoy this lime," insists one auto company official. "I'm sure that everybody who had something to do with this (resolution) is sincere and I think they have gotten together to make 1 sure that there won't be any chance of slick- ering each other." He also notes that the resolution originated at the top, with Harlow H. Curtice of General Motors Corp., Henry Ford II of Ford and L. L. Colbert of Chrysler Let's hope millions of motorists at the wheels of cars with powor and speed to burn will take their cue from the makers and put the lid on. (Kokomo Tribune) For the first time in 10 years an Ohio city passed up selecting an "outstanding man of the year" because no one seemed to be qualified for the honor. Another year or so like that and the women may be taking over. IN THE PAST One Year Ago Dr. Harry Koss, superintendent of Logansport schools for the past year, resigned tcr become superintendent of schools in Obcrlin-,- 0.

Two Cass county men, Donald Smith and Lewis Gljissburn, were appointed state troopers. The city school board approved architect's plans for additions to the Daniel Webster and Washington schools. Ten Years Ago Pfc. James Duddleslon, 21, formerly of Logansport, died. Mrs. Minnie Pctrie, 78, expired at her residence, 121fi North street.

Twenty Years Ago St. Vincent's parish Girl Scout Mary Catherine Grusenmcyer rescued a four-year-old-boy from the waters of Lake Maxinkuckee, M. Kdwm Minneman of Logansport died, following a brief illness. Gcraldine Swart'/.ell, a teacher fn the Franklin grade school, was recovering, following surgery at St. Joseph's hospital.

Drew Pearson Says: Two millionaires tangle over Inflation; Henry Morgenthau diaries! are sealed; Southern Democrats start-paying off on Civil Rights deal. WASHINGTON—Secretary of the Treasury George Humphrey made a serious 'tactical error at the start of the current inflation hearings, Gaylord Freeman of the First .National Bank of Chicago was called in for treasury, strategy c 'o n f er- ences on how to combat the Senate investigation. He and Undersecretary Randy - Burgess recommended that Humphrey meet fire with fire, that he blast the senators. Old treasury hands advised against this, urged Humphrey, not to make .extravagant claims. He spurned their advice, sided with Burgess and Freeman. Freeman then wrote the* long political statement which Humphrey read into the record claiming the fiscal moon, the stars, and most of the financial universe for the Eisenhower administration. This was just what Bible-pounding Sen. Bob Kerr of Oklahoma and other Democrats were looking for. They have been firing back, picking Humphrey's statement full of holes ever since. Most amusing cross-examination In years has been Kerr's roughing up of Secretary Humphrey. Humphrey, long accustomed to being salaamed to by business tycoons, complains privately at being cross- examined by a two-bit millionaire from Oklahoma. Whether Humphrey or Kerr has more millions is a debatable point. Humphrey's wealth is in uranium,' iron ore, paint, rayon, steel, and buscuits. Kerr's wealth is in $100 million worth of oil and gas lands. The wealth of both men has benefited from tax favors. Humphrey's companies have got tremendous write-offs from Uncle Sam, and those located in foreign countries don't pay taxes in the U.S.A. Kerr, likewise, has had healthy benefits through the 27 J /4 per cent oil depletion allowance. Regardless ot who is wealthier, Kerr and Humphrey have been going at each other hammer and tongs—partly because Humphrey's big business advisers advised him to lead with his political chin. In Smoke-filled Rooms The famed Morgenthau Diaries •have been declared classified by Senators Eastland of Mississippi •and Jenner of Indiana who run the Senate Internal Security Committee. Just why remains a mystery. Senators probed the Morgenthau Diaries to sec if they could find disloyalty by employees who worked for the ex-S'ecrcta'ry of the Treasury, but their search was fruit- Jess. Now historians want to examine the diaries, .all on file at FDR's Hyde Park Library, but the two Senators say no. Arthur Schlesinger, the Harvard historian and ghost writer for Adlai Stevenson, did get a look at the diaries but he was lucky. Other historians are banned . . . Morgenthau made a note of almost everything he tlid from sneezes to talks with FDR, and his 900 volumes of notes are a historian's paradise'. . . George Allen Ike's golfing friend and business partner in Howard Johnson restaurants, refers to the new Undersecretary of State as follows: "Chris Hcrtcr is a glass arm pitcher. Ike was oversold on him." Those inside the State Department, however, say Herter is doing a fine job. He's a slow slarlcr. But he has increased Stal'e Department morale as never before under Dulles; has brought back staff conferences for the first time since Dean Achuson's exit... The White House had so much trouble finding a "new chairman of the Federal Communications Commission that it's going to Commissioner Docrfor by default. About 20 people turned down this key job which hands out million-dollar TV permits. Retiring Chairman Me- Connaughey and other GOP commissioners have plunged the commission into too much politics . . . Correction: In connection with the recent report of Congressmen who •took free trips to the Dominican Republic and became apologists for Dictator Trujillo, it should be •noted that the expenses of Congressman Donald Jackson (II., Calif.) were paid by the House Foreign Affairs Committee, not by TRtATV VIOLATIONS RED Trujillo; and that the expenses oE Congressman Pat Kearney (R., N. Y.) were paid by Earl Chrislian- 'berry, proprietor, of the Jaragua Hotel, who has close relations with. Trujillo. Neither Congressman accepted the proffered medal from Trujillo. €lvil Rights Deal Some of the deals made to block the Civil Rights Bill are now being paid off. Congressman Howard Smith of Virginia, head of Ihe Southern bloc, has privately warned Democratic •Leader John McCormack thai he will stall for time before letling new Antitrust legislation out of •Jiis House Rules Commillee for a vote by the full House. Smith had secretly promised to •block the Pre-Merger Nolificalion Bill—requiring corporal-ions to notify the Justice Department CO days before. corporate mergers— Jt Congressman Miller of New York and the NAM would try lo water down the Civil Rights Bill. Congressman Smith is now paying off. Power Lobbyist How close the big power lobbyists have been snuggling up to Federal Power Commission Chair- ma n Jerome Kuykenda'.l and FPC officials is indicated by some byplay at the Senate hearings on Kuykcndail's confirmation 1 . Earnest spectator at the hearings has been C. R. McDonald, •lobbyist for Bbasco Services, who sat next to PPC general counsel Willard Galchell. Frequently they whispered together. Frequently also Galchell got up from his seat to haixl notes to Kuykendall suggesting ideas for his testimony. 1 The lobbyist with whom general counsel GatchcJl seemed so chummy is also the man apparently responsible for the flurry in Idaho •Power Company stock on April IS, after Idaho power got ils $83,595,827 tax write-off from the government at Hells Canyon. Previously, Senator KeFauver had dug out testimony that, af- ler the Office of Defense "Mobilization decided to give Idaho Power this big tax bonanza,' Jacob Wyclc- off of ODM telephoned Ebasco's ^McDonald April IB or 17 and said: "I have something for you." Next day, Wyckoff saw McDonald, gave him the lax write-off certificates.' On April 1(1, Idaho Power stock shot up on Wall Street. MOTH THREATENS TREES LAFAYETTE (UP)—Entomologists al Purdue said today that Christmas tree plantations in Northern Indiana arc threatened by an invasion of a pine moth. Kxpert Don Schudcr said on one LaPorle County tract one-fourth oE the irees wore infested witli the' Zimmerman moth. He said there is no control except pruning and burning infested parts. LAFF-A-DAY Angelo Pafrri "No" Should Be Kept for Critical Time Wise parents say Yes as often as they can to the children's requests. They will even stretch a minule into more to make the Yes good. When a parent says No almost before the child has stopped talking, he places a block between him and 'Jie child which increases as the days pass. Busy fathers, for example,' are tired when they get home and when Junior asks, ''Dad, will you go with me to -the Scout meeting Wednesday night?" When Bad says, "No," without so much as a glance over the edge of his newspaper, Junior is hurl and discouraged and begins building Ihe feeling that Dad does nol care in Ihe least, about what he is doing or what he would like to have done for him and with, him. Two boys were walking home together and one said lo the other "I am sure Father will go along with us. I'm going to ask him tonight. Mr. Arnos said nobody can go without his father, but i feel sure Father will say Yes. How ' about you?" "Nothing doing. My father never says anything bu'. 'No.' I'm not even going to mention the excursion." "Aw, give him a chance. Ask him. How you know if you (Jicin't ask?" "1 know my father. He says no when I open my mouth. Maybo j'li gel the Scoutmaster to go along. He says Yes if he can." "No." is the heavy gun in a parents' armory. It is kept for the critical situations, the . essentials. Jt is seldom used by wise teachers and parents, but once it is brought into action it is set once and for all. Tt has been said and it cannot be unsaid. Any attempt at that, any withdrawal is sure to weaken the trust of tlie child. The foundation of his security in his parents's judgment his fathe in his. infallibility, has been shaken. His Yes and His No can be Maybe, and the child is going to go on that basis thereafter. This attitude is a poor one for co-operation belween him and his parent It is not always possible to say yes. One should be slow about saying il when it implies co-operation with the child at a future time. Nobody knows what will happen next week, next month; but children are quick to say, ,"You promised." And regardless of the conditions that have arisen, they will insist upon the Yes being made good. Better to say, "We'll see when Uut time comes." Say Yes it possible and go along with the child's interests even It it means on hour or a clay or a few minutes oul of rest time. Parents must share in a child's life or lose hokl on Ihat child. Keep No for the critical times. Recognition Of Red China Still Distant Secretary Dulles in Frisco Speech Says U. S. Has "Open Mind" On Eventual Diplomatic Relations SAN FRANCISCO (UP) — Secretary of State John Foster Dulles said Friday the United Slates is keeping an "open mind" on eventual diplomatic relations with Red China. But he said the Peking regime would have to change its ways •drastically to win U.S. recognition. DullOs said in a speech prepared for the 40Ui annual convention of Lions Internationa! that he is confident the United Stales and Red China mainland some day would be on friendly terms again. Communism in ChiJia, as elsewhere, he said, is a "passing and not a perpetual phase." "We owe il to ourselves, our Allies and the Ciiinese people to do all thai we can to contribute to that passing," Dulles added. The secretary made il clear that this country, intends .neither to recognize nor trade with Red China under existing conditions. He reiterated the American indictment of the regime of Mao Tse-lung. "Internationally," he said, "the Chinese Comir.iinis!, regime does r.ot conform u> the practices of civilized nations: does nol live up to its international obligations; has not been peaceful in the past, and gives no evidence of being peaceful in the future. "Its foreign policies arc hostile to us and our Asian Allies, "Under • these circumstances it would be folly for us to establish relations with the Chinese Communists which would enhance their ability to hurt us and our friends." The secretary, however, held out- hope that China will throw off the shackles of communism and "again be able to play a constructive part of Uie councils of na- 'tions." But he snitl many changes are •needed—on the parfof Rod China. "Nothing could be more dangerous," he said, "than for the United States to operate on the theory that if hostile and ovil forces do not quickly or readily change, then it is we who must change to.meet them." Dulles said il would not be advisable to provide for cultural exchanges between the two countries al this time. At no point in his speech did he mention the question of permitting American newsmen to visit the Chinese mainland to report on developments there.

OVERRULE CONVICTION INDfANAPOLiS (UP) - The Indiana Supreme Court today set aside the conviction of Robert Castle, sentenced by St. Joseph County Superior Co.urt to six months in prison tor an alleged attack on a 15-year-old girl. Caslle wa.s charged with rape and convicted of assault in April, 1355. The high court sustained Castle's contention thai he should be freed because he was not tried within three terms of the court.
