THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE PROGRAM FOR LOGANSPORT 1. An Adequate-Civic Ct»nt«r 2. An Adequot* Scwagt Disposal System 3. SuffiEcent Parkins Faciliti«» The Scythe Is Busy That grisly, robed figure with skeletal hands gripping a scythe is doing very well on the nation's streets and highways this year. If his bloody, harvest continues at the present pace, 1957 may see the loss of more lives in traffic accidents than ever before. The Institute of Life Insurance reports that auto accidents during the first quarter of this year resulted in 11,000 death claims for a total of 26 million dollars. The claims total is three million dollars more than it was during the first three months of 1956. It is estimated that life insurance death claims as a result of auto fatalities may exceed 100 million dollars this year for the first time, if the present rate of gain continues. These are figures as grim as the reaper that symbolizes them. They must not be regarded merely as statistics. Each of us should translate them into the terms of suffering and death which are their' true measure.' Each of us should accept a fair share of the responsibility for reducing the upward trend in accidents. Campaigns Are Fairer Campaigns are getting fairer, says the Fair Campaign practices Committee. This is a nonpartisan group headed by Mayor Charles P. Taft of Cincinnati, a brother of the late Sen. Robert A. Taft. Its aim is to raise the standard of electoral contests, so that they will be decided more nearly on their merits. Reports to this body from 22 state party chairmen mention smears used in political fights. In almost all cases these affected only congressional or state candidates, not the national tickets. In eight cases the smears backfired, and helped the intended victim instead of hurting him. In the past the standard was lower. Atrocious lies were used, for instance, in the Polk-Clay contest of 1844 and the Garfield-Hancock fight in 1880. And most historians agree that the worst cases of hitting below the belt occurred in 1828, when the rival nominees were two or our greatest political figures, John Quincy Adams and Andrew Jackson. Jt is still sound policy to disbelieve sweeping charges brought in the last lays of a campaign. IN THE PAST One Year Ago The Rev. Raymond Echols, pastor of the First Methodist church at Kendallville, was ap- l>ointed paslor of Ihe local Broadway Methodist church.

MERRY-CO-ROUND Tuesday Evening, May 28, 1957. LEST WE FORGET Drew Pearson says: Senatorial courtesy prevailed between two senators who disagreed; Ike bawled out Admiral Radford tor. being an expert on disarmament; Ike has real hopes on pact with Russia. WASHINGTON — Shortly before Republican senators excoriated Democratic, Sen. w ayne 'Morse of Oregon on the Senate floor, Mor/ se got a call from the chief attacker, Sen. Styles Bridges of New Hampshire. Morse had charged in a Detroit speech that Eisenhower was "tha same kind of immoralist" as Beck, because his administration had. granted "rapid tax write-off certificates to the Idaho Power Com- 'pany on its three Hells Canyon dams. The White House was sizzling. "Wayne," said kindly, conservative Senator Bridges just before the Senate convened, "we've been good personal friends, so I wanted to notify you that the White House has been putting a lot of pressure on me. I'm going to have to make a speech on the floor this afternoon in regard to your Delroit re-, marks comparing the president with Dave Beck. "I want you to know that there's nothing personal about it. I simply have a job to do and I'm sure you'll be able to take care of yourself." "I'll do the best I can," replied Morse, and was on deck when the Senate opened, ready for the attack. Washington Traffic Sen. Thurston Morton (R., Ky) gol stalled in a Washington traffic jam the other day en route lo his office. Cars closed in from all sides. In desperation, he flagged a police cruiser and identified himself. "I'm not asking for any special favor to get ahead of all this crowd," he said, "but I do have to get to -work. Would you please help me get out of here?" "Senator," the polieman drawled, "I'm stuck, too. If you can figure a way out, I'll follow you." Thereupon, Morton led the police cruiser inch-by-inch through the clogged traffic. Fancy Dan Admiral When President Eisenhower read in the newspapers that Adm. Arthur Radford, chairman of the joint Chiefs-of Staff, had sounded off that the Russians never could be trusted on disarmament, he grabbed the telephone. Ike is about Iho mildest president the American public hns ever seen in press conferences and whon he appears on television. But in private conversations, especially with military men, ho can chow out an admiral or a general as if he were a buck private. This is what he did to Radford. He told the chairman • of the joint chiefs that he could say anything he wanted against disarmament in the secrecy of the White House, but that it was not his business to sound off publicly against disarmament. A military man's place is in the council room, not on the platform, Ike told Radford in effect. Talks with Russia are at a critical stage, and remarks such as the admiral's might ruin everything. This was the background behind the President's press confer- once remarks later that he is willing to meet the Russians halfway In any reasonable disarmament plan. Actually, Ambassador Bohlcn, recently re-turned from Moscow, reports that the climate for an arms agreement is bettor than at any time recently. This is partly because the Kremlin appears to realiv.o the tragedy of war, partly also because the Kremlin is having serious industrial problems. Simultaneously, Eisenhower — partly perhaps because he is a military man—cherishes as his greatest ambition the goal of peace. He has confided to friends thai he would rather consummate a peace plan with Russia than any other thing during his term as President. Note—Iko should have known that he was. borrowing trouble when ho first appointed Radford Chairman of the Joint Chiefs. Truman ffnce exiled Radtord to the Mid-Pacific for slirring up a bitter battle against the Air Force over the long-range bombing effectiveness of Ihe B-52 as againsl the effectiveness of Iho big airplane carrier. Radford stepped way out of line in organizing an attack against the Air Force, causing mild-mannered Gen. Omar Bradley lo brand him and colleagues publicly as "Fancy Da-n Admirals." Merry-Go-Round John English, the man who replaces Beck on _tlie A'FL-OIO executive commitlee, is no stooge for Beck. He has hated Beck for years . . . Dignified Gordon Gray, •ex-president of Ihe University of North Carolina, is being gibed by friends as "the Dave Beck of Ihe Eisenhower administration." He pleaded the. '"Executive Fifth Amendment" eight times in refusing to testify why he gave Ihe Idaho Power Company a $03 million quickie lax wrile-off on Hells canyon . . . Congressman John Dingel! of Delroit has a rip-snorler of a speech coming up shortly. He'll show lhat James MoKenna, Washington, D.C., a-llorney, had to withdraw as allorney for Massachusetts bay telecaste-rs because Lhe American Broadcasling Company pressured him lo do so. ABC wanls to hook up wilh Channel 5, granted lo the Boslon Herald-Traveler, which opposes Massachusetts Bay Telecaslers be- sure, says Dingell, is getting worse in television than in politics . . .

LAFF-A-DAY Angelo Potri Care Makes Pet Part of Family Circle Boys and girls, how is your dog? I hope,he is well and happy as a dog associated with a fine young master or mistress should be. His eyes are bright, his coat is shining, his tail is In good wagging order. Of course you feed him regularly from his own clean dish and you keep fresh cool water in his appointed drinking place. Naturally. So do we. We have a dog who is a regular member of Ihe family. He is quite impartial in bestowing his affection. He has so much of it that, it jusl overflows on each of us whenever he meets us. His little stumpy tail wags so fast and so hard you can scarcely see it and he lavishes wet kisses on occasion and out of it. He Is a wonderful companion for a walk. He races ahead and races back, investigating every hole and cranny just in case. We have a cat, too. A big golden pussy who keeps the place free of mice and makes war on tho moles. .He and the. dog are' fast friends. When Puss wants lo come- into tho house, he knocks on the door and immedialely Ihe dog lifts his voice in a loud shout and races to Hie door, demanding we hurry and get it open. You see we got them both when they were very small. Puss was so little he curled up in my one hand. He was a poor, scrawny, sick killen thai somebody had tossed out, Half starved, flea ridden, he was a very sick kitten but you ought to sou him today. He is four years old now, a big powerful, golden cat and he loves us and tils brother Dog. He purrs like a motor car when he jumps on our laps and he loves to curl up there and sleep if one has time to hold him. No, he doesn't hurt birds though they are here in great numbers all year. He sits and watches them. Maybe he would like one? Anyway he knows he must not touch them. Being a wise Puss he doesn't. I am telling you how much fun nnd how much comfort we get from our two pets so that you will know you are not the only ones who love Ihe creatures and care for them. Should you live in the country, you have no big problems with your pels. You have space for them and can enjoy them easily. Should you live in the city and be in the country for n vacation and lake a pet along, will you please do just one thing for him? Take him back home when you go or seo that he is well placed with people who love him. Don't be guilty of deserting this little creature who hns learned to love you and depend upon you for eare. That would be too cruel. A happy summer to you and your pet wherever you may be. Every child should have a library of Komi book*; they nro a part of a child's Krowth.

Earl Kanlzor Jr. Emergency Orders For Sky Tested CHICAGO — A voice from the sky may direct the public in emergencies in the fulure. • . The Armour Research Foundation said that two experimental sound systems — one of them airborne — have been developed for tho Federal Civil Defense Admin- istralioon. The DuKane Corporalion of St. Charles, III., designed the systems and scientists at the research foundation studied them for intelligibility under various operating conditions. The airborne system is designed to provide voice communication from air to ground in order to control outdoor 'traffic and pedestrians during air alerts and after attacks, according to Dr. Robert W. Benson of the foundation. The systems uses a Cessna 170 airplane, magnetic lape recorder, three 100-watt amplifiers, three 100-watt horn loudspeakers and a gasoline-driven motor generalor. The olher syslem lested was a fixed installation ulop a building. It consisted of 32 100-wall loudspeakers inslallod on Iho roof of Iho 10-story Hotel Gary, at Gary, Ind. Benson said the rooftop system •was designed to provide intelligible direction lo the general population within n one-square-mile area. "Results of the investigalion show that bolh systems have more lhan adequate power and intelligi- bilily for their intended functions," Benson said, "provided thai relatively quiet conditions prevail."
