Wednesday Evening, July 10, 19ST. THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE PIOORAM FOR IOOANSPOKI 1. An Adiqilot* Civic Cwlllr 1. An AfeqiMt* Stwag* Diipoul fyiMni 1. Suffiiuitt Parking FacilHIu Position of Dignity The people of the United States expect much of a former president. Once' out of office, he cannot go his own way ' as he pleases. He cannot even earn his living, as the rest of us can, by any honorable means that come to hand. And he is expected to maintain himself in a position of dignity, to be articulate on current affairs, to answer a voluminous per r sonal mail. The people do not provide ex-presidents with the means of doing any of these things. Unlike many other former ' officeholders and retired generals, a man who was once president gets neither pension nor any other perquisites. When he leaves the White House, he is on his own. The people do not even provide him with an office, let alone a secretary. It cari be persuasively argued that this is a shameful state of affairs. We place a man in what has been described as the toughest job on earth, and when he has done his best at it we turn hjm loose without any tangible evidence that we have appreciated his efforts. As a re- • suit, some former occupants of the greatest elective office in the world have felt a real financial pinch in their declining years. That kind of treatment is not worthy of a great people. There are indications, happily, that the tide may be turning. The Harry S. Truman Library has been established under the Presidential Library Act of 1955, and in the building that houses it the former president has at his disposal a suite of offices. That is a start in the right directipn, but perhaps more ought to be done when conditions warrant it. Mrs.' Jolie Gabor, wed for the third time, 'is tied with one daughter at three marriages but trails two others with four knots each. It seems this ought to suggest an idea for some sort of a television prize contest. With postal schedules restored, Saturday like other days brings heart throbs for those who get love letters and headaches for recipients of requests to pay bills with money they haven't got. An Ohioan has built a speedy little automobile out of parts from six junk cars and a motorcycle. Unless he did an expert job of bolting everything securely he won't have to use a horn. The new British government budget got the reception that greets all tax programs—cheers from those getting levy cuts, boos and groans from those facing raises. IN THE PAST One Year Ago . Mrs. Dotlie Graft, l!3, of 632 West Main street, Peru, died at Dukes hospital. Mrs. Mildred Scheffcr, Ii7, formerly of Logansport, succumbed at her farm home in Pulas- kl county.

Steel wants $91,000,000 gift from Uncle Sam; Kremlin crisis caught State Department off base; Air Force Drill Team may perform at Radio City. WASHINGTON. — While U. S. Steel was touching off a chain re- Action of inflation which will hit • everything from bobby pins to automobiles, it was simultan e o u s 1 y pulling wires for a 40-foot channel in the Upper Delaware River so bigger ore ships can Twenty Years Ago Mrs. Pauline Beaulleu and Mrs. Dcbotha C. Honoss were certified eligible on the basis of written and oral examinations, for appointment as county director of welfare. Mrs. Ida Pnramorc, 55, Rochester, died oE a heart attack bclived to havo been caused by tho current heat wave. Mrs. Edith Van Wormcr, 2203 East Broadway, fractured her arm when she fell at home, Mrs Sarah M. Green, 82, died last night, six days after .she and Mr. Green hod celebrated tlielr GOtli wedding anniversary. Mrs. Eunice Smith, 70, Winamac, died at the home of a daughter, Mrs. Harvey Rhodes, at Lucerne. Mrs. Marie Behmcr, 225 Humphrey street, was endorsed as a candidate for the state presidency of tbo American Legion Auxiliary. reach its giant Fairless Works at Morrisville, Pa. Deepening- the channel will cost the taxpayers an estimated $91,738,000 — a free gift to U. S. Steel because it is the only company planning to use super ore carriers on the Upper Delaware. This costly project, benefiting one private company, was quietly pushed through the House Appropriations Committee by Chairman Clarence Cannon (D., Mo.). It is now being considered by a Senate Appropriations Subcommittee headed by Senator Allen Ellender (D., La.) • Property owners along the Delaware claim a deeper channel will increase the flood menace. They • point out that the last damaging flood in August, 1955, was caused by hurricane-driven water forced up the Delaware. A 40-foot channel would permit more flood water • to be 'driven up the river. If the taxpayers have $91,738,000 to spare, they say, it should be spent on flood control for the. benefit of all the property.owners. The White House is incensed over the way U. S. Steel thumbed its nose at President Eisenhower by hiking the price of steel one day after his appeal against inflation. It remains to be seen, however, whether the White House will oppose spending $91,738,'OM to dredge a private, dead-end passageway up the Delaware River for the same U. S. Steel. Observers note that in the past Ike has frequently rewarded his opponents in thp field of big business; even appointed Ben Fairless, a backstage power in U. S. Steel, to a high advisory post in his administration. U. S. Steel Dividends Here's what a tough time U. S. Steel has hod during the past ten years. If you invested $10,000 in U. S. Steel in 1947, you will find its value today has shot up to $61,- G06. During that same ten-year per- lod, it paid dividends of $L2,77<1. Thus the income and Iho. valuo added together total $74,2110, if you deduct your original investment of $10,000, you received a profit during tho ten-year period of $04,280. Caught Off Base Last week's crucial Kremlin crisis caught the State Department completely unprepared. Its star Ambassador, Chip Bohlen, had been transferred to the Philippines through pure whim, and the new Ambassador, Llewellyn Thompson, was still "winding up affairs" in Austria. Ike was golfing at Gettysburg. The Secretary of Slate wan vacationing at Duck Island. Tho new American counselor, Richard Davis, had arrived In Moscow only a few weeks before. He's a good man, but was in no ponition to begin reporting on the most difficult and secret government operation in the world. Because of his low rank, Khrushchev and Bulgan- ir, did not come In the 4th of July reception at the American Kmhu.s- sy, as would have been the case if an American Ambassador were in charge. It is at those receptions that some of the best leaks occur in Moscow. Tho State Department was also caught off base in Hungary last fall. The rioting broke out with the American Minister absent. Note — Ambassador Bohlon was transferred from Russia to tho Philippines not because he wanted it but on the order of John Foster Dulles. Bohlen is one of (lie lev/ career diplomats,who spcaka Itus- sian fluently. fc.rlormlaK Air Force The Radio City Music Hall is dickering with the Air Forco for a 24-man Drill Team to replace (lie famed Rocketles in New York this summer. A six-week engagement, is being discussed, with an Air Force Drum and Bugio Corps possibly going ulong to provide- musical accompaniment. Air Force officers are intrigued by tho proposal because- it would give them a good chance for re- Sf^I cruiting publicity. They say Music Hall spoilsmen have promised to allow posters and displays ,in the theater's lobby, built around the theme of "1947—Golden Anniversary of the Air Force." However, the Drill Team, which is part of the 1100th Security Squadron at Boiling Field in Wash, ington, is doing a slow burn. Officially, its mission is to supply bodyguards for the high brass and command headtiuarlers of the Air Force if World War III should break out. ^eanwhile, the Drill Team cams' its pay by providing ceremonial units for military funerals, parades, and receptions in the capital. A few months ago, a Drill Team was supplied for the Ed Sullivan television program. Though this too was a commercial venture, its members enjoyed the jaunt and didn't squawk. But six weeks oC continuous performances under hot floodlights is another, matter, especially when you're ordered to live on Air Force pay plus $12 a day for hotel add meals in an expensive city like Now York. Negotiations are under way to determine how much oC the $12-a- day cost per man would be paid by Radio City Music Hull. Even if it paid all, the Music Hall would still get its "Act" at a bargain rate.

LAFF-A-DAY Fifty Years Ago Judges John Lalry and George Gamble will altcnd the meeting of the Indiana Bar Association in Indianapolis. Rev.

William Snycler is snid lo have caught BO pounds of catfish while fishing near Kenneth Saturday. Lloyd Stevens, assistant secrelary of th« VMCA, Is attending the summer school nl Winona lake. Angelo Patri Responsibility Of Driving Is Great Parenls undoubtedly have grave responsibilities these days when cars have such a high value to children lhat they will actually steal them to have the thrill of mastering them. To sit in the driver's seal and hold lhal wheel and have that wonderful machine respond to his hands is to make a child feel like a monarch. Now all Tattlers ami mothers know this and most of them keep a watchful eye on the children and the cars. Father says firmly, "No. You cannot drive the car oven into the garage. When you are older and more understanding about cars, you will be taught how to drive but not now, not until you can carry a big responsibility. A cur can do terrible things unless the driver knows what he is about. Sometimes evrai then it Is dangerous." Unfortunately all fathers and mothers do not liuve this attitude. Some are so irresponsible as to be quite unknowing about the desire of a boy or a girl to feel mastery over a cur and be really a big person. This leads to trouble, 'big trouble. There are parents who are so occupied with their own affairs- work, poverty, all kinds of worry and responsibility-thai they do not know that their buys and girls are at loose encls--tliey stop in tho candy shop to have a soda and meet thuir friends. They do just that. And they do more somctim.es. They got hold oC a car by one moans or another and go for u ride. There is an accident and u girl in her curly teens lies dead by the roadside. The law holds Ihe bay driver responsible. A hoy of sixteen? A girl of fourteen 1 ! 1 Who is responsible for such tragedies? All of us, I think. Homes today offer so little of activity and Interest to hulf-grown hoys and girls. Society is geared too high, to loo much spued. Fathers and mothers arc both at work, trying lo earn enough money to keep n roof, over the family's heads and pay for the cur they must have. Work la denied children. Yet hall-grown boys and girls need work that Is within their ability and capacity in order lhul: they may grow physically und menially In sound health. 1 am not excusing the boy or girl who helps himself to someone else's cur or who lakes the family car without permission. What I would want to know before eon- demming" the boy or girl Is: what supervision, what leadership, what instruction, what useful work or play was available to him? Society Hias a responsibility here. The school, Ihe police, Ihe Law cannot carry it alone.. All of us, including lathers and mothers, must help.

Holywoo<3 is where a star whose movie heroics have grossed $3M) million, launched his career with an heroic gesture. When John Wayne toiled as a prc-p man, he dived into a stormy ocean from the deck of a ship after the stunt man lost his nerve.' As a result, director John Ford rewarded him with acting jobs. . .Ask Wayne the secret of his success and he states succinctly: "Everybody loves a hero." Misler Hero, however, admits lo a fear: "Women scare hell out of me. I've always been afraid of them."

(UP)—Bystanders were astounded ait the getaway unties of a pair of bandits .who robbed Captain John's Restaurant here. Police said th« men jumped Into separate care and roared off in opposite directions. The whimsical origin of extraordinary skill is probably best exemplified by a saga titled: "Tire Frightened 5-Year-Old, starring Alfred Hitchcock. . .Hitchcock's father was a practical jokor whose alleged jokes verged on sadism. When Alt was 5-ycars-old, his father arranged with a police commissioner friend to have his youngster arrested and put in jail. Of course, the hysterical cliikl was released and informed it was all in fun. Hitchcock, however, never forgot the ordeal. He still has un intense fear of policeman. And to compensate for his childhood fright he devoted his career to scaring the britches off millions of people. Hollywood is where queens art morose and kings dwell in palatial palaces without being rich. The source of the last irony is lhat hiss- able villain; Joe Incomelax. The truth is that the highest paid man, in Hollywood is Uncle Whiskers... Several years ago Darryl Zanuck earned $465,000 in salary. Nevertheless, that huge sum failed to cover his living expenses. When, friends chided him about this, Zanuck .responded: "I won't change my way of life to save a few lousy bucks." Judy Holliday's initial experienca' with Hollywood had the zany quality which has made Celluloida the despair of satirists—since it is its own best lampoon . . . Miss Holliday was signed by a studio and classified as a musical comedy actress. For many months she waited for a role in a musical. Finally the great day arrived. She was assigned to appear in one. When she reported for work—her part was handed to her on a single piece o£ ADD WINCHELL D 31 .... paper. It consisted of one line: "I once knew a girl who got carbor- undum on her teeth and it turned her into a radio receiving set." After her one-line performance, Miss Holliday waited 6 months for another job and then was dropped from the payroll. Alan Ladd, who fears nothing and nobody on the screen, solves all problems with a right to the jaw. In real life, however, Ladd gets the trembles :it the thought of critics. His wife tries to" keep bad reviews and articles from him, by scissoring them out of the papers. One day, Ladd happened to read a review in a New York pu- per in which the critic dismissed his emoting with: "Ladd played his usual grim, poker-faced self. Ladd brooded about the criticism for years. When (lie critic responsible for the swipe visited H'wood, the Ladds invited him for dinner. Aflcr the evening's sochl niceties, the actor showed (he critic the offending words and vigorously expressed his objections. The reviewer laughed and said nothing. Following the release of Ladd'i next flicker, the same critic wrote: "Ladd played his usual grim, poker-faced self." Incidentally, Hitchcock is a master of suspense when he is away from the cameras. While riding down an elevator with his wife he usually says loudly: "You know, she married four limes and it just so happened thai she hud a cliikl by each one. Well all four of the husbands happened to meet one day and do you know whnl they said?". . .Hitchcock limes his last word to conlcide with the arrival of the elevator at the ground floor. Then he slops talking, leaving Ihe other passengers bursling wilh frustration. The Sad Goddess is probably Movieville's strangest product. They are the curvy charmers, Iho radiant queens—who have a .streak • of melancholy beneath the glazed beauty. As a case in point (here's Kim Novak.'. .Amidst IJie revelry of a nightclub' recently she suddenly burst into tears. Her startled escort inquired: "What's wrong?" Miss Novak sobbed: '"1 <!ont know." Several days later she explained: "I can slurt crying wilh- out knowing why. I wunleil to he doing something. 1 wanted !o lie writing something. Or painting something. Maybe 1 viftis crying over lost minutes, wasting lime. I want so much to give some message. 1 don't know what." If you ever doubted Ihe power of pufflicily. there's the triumph of Jaync Mansfield. It all began us a result of a press agent's brainstorm. Jaync was one of the prel- ly faces who pnrlicipnlc-d in a Flor. ida publicity junket. The publicist advised her lo wear a rod velvet bikini. When .she appeared almost wearing a swimsuit — flashbulbs popped in nil directions. The photo- was used in countless dailies. It made her torso a national figure. Miss Mansfield's reaction lo that historic incident: "I knew it was right because I always feel patriotic in velvet." Shelley Winters has pointed ou<: "Being out of work anywhere Is bad, but in Hollywood it is terrible. Five hundred dollars-a-woi-lc people only tnllto to $500-a-wcrk people only talk to $500 - n - week peole talk lo $IOfl-o-week people. And people out ol work can't talk to anybody." Tbo strange ami wonderful aspects of Hollywood can pt-rhups be explained by the fact thai it uxi.sls us Hie result of a fulelul whim. Sum Goldwyn, Jesse L;i,sky and Cecil B. DcMille who share- the credit (or blume) for inaugurating the movie industry—originally intended shooting Hie first movie in Arizona, When DcMille arrived in Arizona it wus n rainy, dismal day —so he continued heading West. Miss Novak Is probably disturbed by the aclrcss' ocuuptillonal malady: An intense insecurity. Ironically, those who seemingly have everything frequently behave us if they have nothing—for fear of losing everything. This phcnnm- enon is strikingly illusliMted by Susan fluyward's comment: "Worry? Of course 1 worry. Who doesn't? I worry about my health, u- bout my being poor again, about my future and about my being u whole woman. And I worry luird." Success, the Indian-giver, olfera no much—and then makes it. dlffi- THE PIZZA KALAMA//00, Mich.
