Suffiicaijt Parking Facilttits Arab Unity "Cracking It is doubtful if the semblance of Arab unity can long be maintained. With the 3uez question settled, at least for the ime being, Nasser is likely to press on to another issue. The rift in the Arab world has already been partly exposed. Even • though the Jordanian problem is not yet settled, .iussein has won a round. The meeting of King Saud and Feisal of Iraq has also been detrimental to Nasser's aims. He is not the undisputed leader of the Arab world, and can only become such by continuing tactics of interference and subversion in other Arab countries. Joseph Alsop reports from Lebanon that that nation came near to the point if declaring the Egyptian' ambassador to Lebanon persona non grata, because of he letter's political activities in Beirut. .'he Voice of the Arabs radio station in 'airo has been campaigning against both jebanon and King Hussein, and the Leb- nese president, Chamoun, forbade the nportation of Egyptian papers into his -ountry. The facade of Arab unity can tumble. \nd The prospect of this seems related o the fact that Nasser must press on ac- ording to the logic of a dictator. Events, E course, will show what happens, but le open cracking of Arab unity is a dis- ..nct possibility. It's Still Communist Until there is definite and clear evi- '?nce to the contrary, it is best to dis- ;unt the notion or the hopes that Rusan technocrats and directors will wrest le real reins of power in the Soviet Un>n from the Communist party politicals. At best, they can gain some concessions. The party is too deeply entrenched. r f Khrushchev based himself on the tech- ocrats and directors in opposition to the oliticals of the party apparatus, he could nd himself sliding down uncomfortable hutes and getting slivers where he didn't .•/ant them. The apparatus was built up by Stalin • nd developed into a co-ordinated system f chain commands downwards. It has .sen. trained in cynicism. It has continued 3 exist by ruthlessly protecting itself as ha boss told it to. But the boss is no rtnger the all-powerful Stalin. The ap- laratus remains, full of men who have n adequate fondness for their jobs and their hides. Khrushchev cannot snap his fingers • nd reduce them in order to create a rule y technocrats and directors. To do this /ould, at the very least, require a major olitical struggle, one dangerous to Khrushchev and the party. It is there- .:jre, almost a vain hope that the Com- '-.aunist party of Russia will be much reduced in power, even if Khrushchev should desire that. IN THE PAST One Year Ago Ronald Ward, 10-year-old son . of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Ward, route 1, Royal Center, was fatally burned when a lantern exploded.

Drew Pearson's MERRY-CO-ROUND SACRED COW Dreiv Pearson says: Dictator Trujillo entertained Congressmen just before the increased his sugar quota; Ike's food was inspected before he ate GOP box luncheon; he made hay with Republicans—but too late to save budget. WASHINGTON—Here Is more of the inside story on how Dictator Trujillo, sometimes called -the Caesar of the Caribbean, got his quota for sugar imports into the U.S.A. increased at the expense of Louisiana, the Rocky Mountain states, Puerto Rico, Cuba, Mexico, and Peru. As already reported, Trujillo had enjoyed friendly relations with President Eisenhower's brother-in-law, Col. Gordon Moore, Secretary Dulles's son-in-law, Robert Hin-sha-w, and Henry Holland, ex-assislant secretary of state for Latin America. But although the State bepart- ment recommended an increased sugar quota, it's up to Congress to authorize it. So the proposal was sent to the House Agriculture Committee for action. Normally, the committee hesitates to increase foreign sugar quotas because it hurts American sugar beet and cane sugar growers. But shortly before the vote, Trujillo chartered a Pan American, clipper to fly committee members to the Dominican Republic for a royal visit. There the Congressmen were Trujillo's guests at the Ritzy hotel Jaragua on the seashore, toured the island in style, stopped at such places as Boca Chica, a fancy seaside resort. Hotel Hamaca, an exclusive beachclub hotel located on a natural lagoon three miles long. They were wined and dined by everyone from Trujillo down, and whisked around the island in an 18-car caravan with police escort. Chairman Harold Cooley ot North Carolina was too busy to go, but sent his sister, Mrs. Mabel Downey, with his son and daughter-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Roger Cooley, instead. Other member.? of the House Agriculture committee who accepted Trujillo's invitation were: Rep. and Mrs. W. R. Poage (•D., Tex.); Rep. and Mrs. Tom Abernethy (D., Miss.) and their two children, Tommy and 'Gail; Rep. and Mr.s. Pal Jennings (D., Va.); Rep. and Mrs. Henry Dixon (R., Utah); Rep. and Mrs. John. Watts (O., Ky,); Rep. and Mrs. Harland Hagcn (D., Cal.); Rep. Victor Anfuso (D,, N.Y.); Congresswoman Goya Knutson (D., Minn.); .plus then-Congressman and Mr.s. Harold Lovre (It., S.D.) and their daughter, Sandra. These Congressmen came back from being royaliy entertained by Trujillo and voted a big sugar increase for him. The Dominican Republic's sugar quota was aimost doubled by Congress last year— which will mean Millions in personal profit for the Dominican dictator. Other Congressmen have taken free trips to the Caribbean as Trujillo's guests • and come back as apologists for hi.s dictatorship. The list includes Sen. Olin Johnston (D,, S.C.), Congresswoman Katharine St. George (R., N.Y.), Congressman Don Jackson (R., Cal.), and Congressman Bernard "Pat" Kearney (R., N.Y.). Some of these were recently given high decorations by the Dominican government, which they accepted despite the protest of Rep, Clia.i. Porter of Oregon. Il(i:'s Food InHnuctiiil What OOP congressmen didn't know about their impromptu box luncheon with the president was that the secret service ran a security check on his food. He and ex-Speaker Joe Martin were handed specially marked boxes containing chicken, potato salad, etc., which had been carefully examined for possible poison. What the congressmen did know was that Ike never exuded more political charm or savvy. If he had started exuding a couple o£ months earlier he might have won hi.s battle of the budget. At this late dale he probably won't. The budget battle wasn't mentioned specifically, but the president talked about practically everything else, from hi.s goll' game YOULL 44 AVE.TO to the farm program. And he made a point of calling most of the Republican congressmen by their first names. "Why, hi there, Pat," he said to Patrick Hillings. "You've put on some weight." "Yes, I have put on a few pounds, Mr. President," replied the California):. "I guess it's dua to the Eisenhower prosperity." The president was particularly gregarious with freshmen GOP House members. When photographers were allowed in for pictures, he called to freshman Rep. William Broomfield of Michigan: "Come on over here and sit down here by me and gel your picture taken." Another freshman GOP-er, Edwin H. May of Connecticut, inquired: "How's your golf game, Mr. President?" "Maybe I shouldn't answer that, Ed," Ike replied. "It could be a lot better, especially since my operation. I have managed to shoot one 7(i since the operation, but most of the time I'm in the fill's. Like everyone else, I have my good and bad days. I understand that you're quite a golfer yourself, and that you may pilch for the Republicans in the baseball game against the Democrats. That should be quite a game." Ilenson Han A "Friend" During the handshaking which followed a two-minute speech, the president also got in some .strong plugs for the farm soil bank program, most of which was ditched recently by the House. He said he hoped the Senate would restore lit!?!! funds for the soil bank and that the House would then reconsider its action. "The stability of our afiricultiiro it) terribly important to the welfare of the whole country," he commented, adding that he •thought Secretary of Agriculture Benson was doing a "good job" under a "difficult situation." GOP Rep. Bun Jensen of Iowa, a frequent critic of Secretary Benson, who has .supported the Eisenhower program only !> per cent of the time, then almost caused colleagues clustered around the president to keel over. "I haven't always been im Hon- fion's side, Mr. President," he remarked. 'But don't .you think he has been making some constructive statements recently un the soil bank question?" The president, probably didn't appreciate the irony of Jensen's statement, nodded. He also agreed that the new Republican national chairman, Meade Alcorn, was doing a "great job". "I'm very much impressed with him," Ike said of Alcorn. '"He' knows what lie's doing. He's enthusiastic and ho .puts in long hours." Note: Only "casualty" at Iho LAFF-A-DAY Angelo Porri Use Rewards Intelligently For Results I have scant patience with those who shake disapproving heads at the idea of giving rewards to children for work well done. Cummer, sense shows any ot us that normal people seek the rewards ot accomplishment by every means in their power. Why not help children over the hard places by telling them that at the end there is a reward waiting? Rewards are good or bad, according to how they are bestowed. This requires a little thinking over. One hopeless way is saying "IE you get an A report for the rest of the term, I'll give you that boat, or bike, or whatever." Maybe A is impassible for this child. It is likely lo be so because had it been in his power he would, not have been gelling less. Promising him. a coveted possession on lhat basis is likely to make his record worse rather than, bettor. Long-term rewards for young children do not work because they cannot look ahead to the future and prolong their efforts, no matter what the promised reward may be. Their rewards must; be .immediate, close OH tho heels of accomplishment. A material reward is not always necessary lo make a child feel appreciated and cherished. A smile, a "well done, boy," a "good girl, you're wonderful" do as much as anything else could do to lift a child's spirit. We are too sparing of them rather than too lavish. Often there is a question about giving medals to successful pupils. It is true medals have been given to those who needed tht'in least if they were intended to spur effort. But they have another value and an important one. A boy or girl wins a medal for accomplishment in a certain field of study or work. The time comes when Oils young person applies for entrance to a special course, to a college or university and he must fill out an application or write what is culled a "profile." Tiie person reading his statement comes lo the item "medal for research in biology." Maybe it is "medal for competence in English Composition." It might be "medal for greatest improvement In studies during the year." Do you sec what such a .statement could mean to the man or woman silling in the chair of authority? It can mean a great deal lo the fulura of the medal winner. And don't belittle that one for "improvement." It is a very valuable one because it says that this young person grows as he learns and learns as- he grows; and that is something, a quality, that educators, businessmen, heads of inslilulions are earnestly looking for. Use rewards' intelligently and they are of 'greatest value. Public Forum We should first of all thank the Cass Counly Council for voting against converting Court Park into a parking lot, then Mr. Ball, those, who signed in protest and the Cass County Commissioners for abandoning the plan. May I ask a question? To whom do the Courthouse and grounds belong? Some cities have been prohibited from placing meters around a courthouse lie- cause it is county, not city property. Since those meters have been placed around ours, surely the city has collected enough from them to pay for their cost. Why not the county take over the collections from those 20 or morer meters and use the proceeds to do some fixing up? First of all the rest rooms. There is not a decent public rest room for shoppers in Logansport. That courthouse rest room is a disgrace to our city. Other towns have a clean place in their courthouses. Some even have a matron. Why can't we? The cily doesn't furnish public rest rooms. After renovating the outside of their building they took down the signs and locked the outside doors. Figuring Ihe same way Mr. Riley did the amount of cars Court Park could accommodate daily, those 21) or more mele.-s should take' in approximately $50.00 per week. C. A. Miller 215 W. Miami Avcnuo Farm Work Picking Up LAFAYETTE, Ind. (UP)—Pur<Iu c University and federal agricultural statisticians said today 'fuvo.'-a'blc weather conditions permitted farm work about 50 per •cent of the lime last week. No moisture deficiency was reported by field agents. In fact, 53 [per cent of Hie reporters cited soil moisture surplus. The others said moisture was ample. Corn planting was K per cent completed by Uie clo.se o[' last week, according to Robert 10. Stras7,heim, but 30 per cent behind last year's pace. Soybean planting reached nearly 25 per cent, 20 per cent behind last year at this time. Wheat was headed on about 85 per cent ot the acreage and about CO per cent of the crop reached the bloom stage. Barley turned in southern counties, wln'le pasture •conditions continued at a high, level. Stale climatotogist Lawrence A. Schaal said the weather last week "was a pleasant change from the sogKy two weeks preceding It," when much-needed farm work had to be abandoned.
