THE PHAHpS-TKIBUNE P HOC RAM FOR IOGANSPORT f. An Adequate Civic C*nt*r 2. An Ad.quot* S«wag> Dupoud SyriMl 3. Suffi!c«nt Parking FaciltfiM Our Renovated Bridges We congratulate the state highway department for the excellent work they are doing on our bridge rails and bridge walks here in Logansport. It is a program which has long been needed, and one which will do much to improve not only the appearance of the city and its approaches, but also the safety ,of those walking over. Kevelations of the past several weeks make it more understandable why the last highway commission under the previous state administration never got around to fixing up our bridge rails and walks. The renovation work is being done in an excellent manner, and the present commission deserves the community's thanks. Last Nazi Leaders Only three of the major Nazi war criminals are still in prison. A fourth, Walter Funk, who directed the war economy under Hitler, has just been released because of his bad health. That, incidentally, was more than he ever did for the hapless wretches assigned to slave labor under his jurisdiction. The three that remain are Rudolf Hess, Hitler's chief deputy, who made a spectacular flight to England during the war to bring about a negotiated peace; Albert Speer, munitions director, whose ingenuity in maintaining high production when vital materials were lacking helped Germany to prolong the war, and Baldur Von Schirach, who headed the Nazi youth movement. All the rest were executed, committed suicide, or have .died. Collectively, these men, who were once at the top of the world, illustrated in their careers the truth of the pld admonition, "The wages of sin is death." Anybody who thinks a secretary's life It just a dull cycle of shorthand and typing should note the report of the National Secretaries Association that the average Girl Friday does about 200 odd jobs. So few bosses are efficiency experts. A rock-and-roll singer is said to own five automobiles. Possibly he wants to have at least one parked nearby when he sings, with the engine running in case he has to make a fast get-away. One can almost sympathize with Khruschev's heavy drinking. Think of the terrible things he has to forget! IN THE PAST One Year Ago Frank A. Bott, 59, of 1429 East Market street, died suddenly from a heart attack.

Drew Pearson's MERRY-CO-ROUND Friday Evening. May 31, 1957. WHAT WILL THEY COME OUT WITH? Drew Pearson says: Ike's White House budget is far bigger than Truman's; Ike thinks Billy Graham would be good for Africa; two months required to reach one Senator by mail. WASHINGTON — There's been a lot in the papers about different departmental budgets, not much about the President's own White House budget. During the 1952 campaign, Ike used to stand on the rear platform of his special train and tell how, when he was a boy in Kansas, he and his brothers dropped a nickel. It slipped through the cracks of the porch, and they got down on hands and knees to fish it out. .General Eisenhower told the story over and over again — until newsmen knew it by heart — as an illustration of how he would save every nickel if elected. The year that Ike was elected — 1952, the 1st year under Truman — the cost of running the White House was $1,883,000. This year Ike is asking $2,051,000 for servants, gardeners, food, and olher housekeeping expenses for the 1958 budget. The cost of his office has increased even more, The last year of Truman, the executive office cost $8,166,000. Eisenhower's first year it was $B,725,000. This year, 1957, it is $10,715,000, and for next year the President is asking $12,047,000. This does not include his two helicopters which are. charged to the Defense Department, his private plane which is chai-gcd to the Air Force, his military aides and staffs which are charged to the Pentagon, .nor. his chauffeurs which are charged to the army. The telegraphers and code room cryptographers'were civilians under FDR and Truman but were put under the Army, by Ike. It now takes double the number of Army personnel to do what civilians once did. Figures on the total White House staff are not available, but it's cstimaled that the over-all figure has about doubled, though this does not show in the budget, because so much personnel is borrowed from other departments. The White House has grown under each succeeding president so that it now occupies Uie building which once housed Ihe entire stale, war and navy departments, adjacent lo the White House. Plans arc even under discussion to tear this building down and replace it with a modern office building in order to house the ever-growing White House oEJices. Tliny Need Hilly Gruliam U. S. Ambassador Charles Bohlen, hest-informed diplomat we have ever sent to Russia, got only nine minutes with President Els- enhower (luring his recent stay in the U. S. A. Ike did not seem particularly Interested in talking to lilm about our chief rival. Barbara Ward, British-born authoress, got 30 minutes. In great dc-- lail, she told the president about her recent trip through Africa. The president listened carefully, said nothing until tho very end. Then he remarked: "What those people need Is Billy Graham." Postal Go-lloumi A Colorado official who wnilod two months- without an answer from Sen. Dennis Chavox (D., N. M.) has finally learned why Cha- VOH didn't answer his letter. It's probably the greatest postal •merry-go-round in Summorfield history. The slate official, Tvnl V. Goslin, of the upper Colorado River .Commission, hart written Murch 12, asking permission to testify before Chavez' public works committee on u bill lo creatn a federal .outdoor recreation commission, Two months Inter, Goslin's badly batlerocl letter finally turned up on the desk of Sen. James E. Murray (D., Monl.) one rnlnulo after Murray had convened the hearing on the outdoor recreation com-, mission bill In Ills Senate interior committee. Here's what had happened lo GoKlln'K two-monlh-old letter: 1—It arrived In Chnvex' offlco on March It), was then forwarded via the Senale post offlco. lo Murray, whose interior committee had been assigned the bill in which Goslin was interested. 2—By mistake, the Senate post office sent the leller to former Illinois Congressman James C. Murray in Chicago. 3—Realizing Ihe error, the ex- Congressman marked the envelope for return to Senator James E. Murray of Montana at the U.S. Capitol in Washington. But in some mysterious way it wound up in the Montana State Capitol in Helena. 4—The Slate Capitol readdresscd It lo the U.S. Capitol in Washington, but by error wrote "Congressman" James E. Murray instead of "Senator." 5—For the second time, the Senate Post Office in Washington sent the letter lo ex-Illinois Congressman Murray in Chicago. (i — Ex-Congressman Murray again readdressed the envelope to Senator Murray in Washington. But for the third time Ihe Senale Post Office returned it lo Ex- Congressman Murray in Chicago. 7—Finally Ex-Congressman Murray made sure that the letter would get In the Senator. He placed the latter in. an new envelope and addressed It lo Senator James E. Murray, Room )ll. Senale Office Building, Washington, D.C. •Senator Murray finally got it on May 15—two months after it was written, and just one minute nfter the hearing at which Goslin wanlud lo tcslify iiad begun. Latest State Department wisecrack: "John Foster Dulles should call on Bill Knowland, the Senator •from Formosa, and ask for an official apology." . . . Chiang has talked about paying the U.S.A. an official visit this year. It's now out . . . Chiang is juat as unpopular on Formosa us Americans are. When he flrnt arrived, his troops were credited with killing some fip.OOO native Formosans. The nn- tivo Formoson is indigenous lo Urn Inland and is not Chinese. For many years Formosa was under China, then It was taken by Japan, now is under Chiang Kai-shek nnd Ihu U.S.A. During nil tho talk of who should govern Formosa, nothing IIUK bcun said about the lony- sufforlng Formo.Han people . . Mnyho they should govern themselves . . . Chiang's two brothers- in-law, ( T.

Dean Achoson as Secrclary of: Stale conslslenlly argued that tho Chlnose Mainland could not be retaken from Formosun. I'rcisldldnt Truman supported him. Achcson claimed Chiang's biggest mistake was In fiiillnK to lift the poverty- stricken masses of the Chinese people. As a result ho has no real following Is China. LAFF-A-DAY Angelo Patri Sentence Is Problem for Small Child "Our little son seemed to be learning to talk all right until this past month when he began to choke and sputter and stutter when ho Iricd to tell us something. A sentence seemed lo bother him but not single words. Why should he begin to stutter now after he had begun lo talk so nicely? I do not believe he is stuilering. Stuttering is a speech handicap that calls for the attention'of the. speech specialists. Little children, with emphasis on small boys, ara likely to slammer soon afler Ihey start talking In sentences. This is not caused by a speech defect. It usually is caused by the child's desire to say more in less lime liian his speed) development permits. Children of three years do not have a largo number of words at their command; their speech mechanism is not yet fully developed; they have more lo say than they huvc power to say because •they arc not yet able lo control tho energy Ihey release In an effort to lell a slory. Hon-ce tho stammer. When this happens, be careful to relax. Tho child Is under len- sion, and until he relaxes ho will be unable to talk freely. Let him know you, ore listening by saying something'such as, "I'm listening, dear. Take it easy." Don't look directly at tho child lest the power of your feeling, your anxiety •lo help him, Increase his anxiety. Give him plenty of time, and if you see he is still .struggling, talk gunlly lo Jiim about what he is trying lo lell and Ihen let him take over. Bui don'J, tako his story from Jiim. . f ' Give blip/' all the- lime he needs and be u good audience. Some- limes a child fears he is nboul lo lose his audience, and in Jii.s, haste lo lell lha slory before that Imp- pens he floods his speech mccl'.u-. nism with energy and Is lost. U would bo a mislako lo cenlcr •a child's attention on htatsuccuh at this stage, U would be n mis- lako lo drill him on consonants and •syllables. Be content to repent what ho sny.H Incorrectly, clearly iind wllhout remark. Children Imitate the speech and acquire the vocabulary of thoso In their Immediate! family circle. When tho pattern is good, the Imitation will reflect II. Talking should be us natural lo little children as breathing and usually is. Jusl lallc genlly lo them, give lliem time, read to them every day, sing lo them often, talk as you would have them talk, and thoro will bo litllo difficulty cxcopt with geUln'g them to slop talking once In a while. Stuttering Js another matter and ahould bo treated by the specialist. * * •» , Save your child from UIR unlinp- plncKH broiiKhl on liy funi's.

Roll Out Red Carpet For King of Hoboes DE£ MOINES (UP) - Sam (King) Cole, 07, king of the Hoboes, found the welcome mat out for him at the Iowa stalehouse and the Polk County jail. Colo, who hinled earlier lie ex- ipected a royal welcome from Gov. Herschel C. Loveless, wasn't disappointed Monday when he showed up at the governor's office. Cole was presented with citalions proclaiming him an Iowa colonel and a governor's aide. The hobo king expressed satisfaction as'he stuffed th e papers in a bulging •brief case containing numerous other honorary citations. Earlier, the Hagcrslown, Md,, liobo spent Ihe night in jail as a guest of Uie Polsk County sheriff. He arrived here en route to Brill, Iowa, to arrange for Ihe annual Hobo Day celebration next August. Cole responded lo the Iowa citations by calling Ihe governor a "great guy." Then ho observed: "Iowa has one of Uie prettiest Capitol buildings in tho world, but it needs a good sand blasting." Justices of Peoce Make Up Wedding Audience LIVERPOOL, N.
