Service Officer Not Vital With all indications .pointing to a new record high tax rate for Logansport citizens for next, year, due in part to the necessary increased cost of our city school system, public officials should reject every new expenditure which is not absolutely necessary. Special interest groups are constantly bombarding city and county officials for funds for various projects, and many times 'these officials follow the line of least resistance and approve these expenditures simply because there is no organized opposition to them. The latest request for funds, and a well-meaning one, has come from representatives of various veterans' organizations, who asked the county commissioners at* their last meeting to appoint a county service officer to assist war veterans of the county with any problems they may have. The need for a county service officer wag more apparent at the close of the war, and perhaps immediately following • the Korean War, when hundreds upon hundreds of Cass County veterans needed advice and help. • ' • Today however the number of veterans needing advice or assistance is considerably limited, and at the same time there are several different agencies to which veterans may turn if they desire help or advice. These- agencies include the several veterans organizations^ themselves, which furnish a considerable amount of information pertinent to the veterans problems. There is also a veterans representative at the local employment office' whose primary function is to help in the placement of veterans in proper employment. The Veterans Administration itself will fully answer all questions on veterans insurance 'and other problems which may face the veteran. Congressmen also will promptly assist the veteran if .he does not .know to whom he can turn for information, and will refer him to the proper agency. We do not believe that the situation today calls i'or the appointment of a'Spe- cial county service officer, especially in view of an already high tax rate which makes it mandatory for every unneces-,, sary expense to be eliminated. January's the time for a week in the Bahamas—but who wants to wait. Communist-ruled Czechoslovakia held local elections recently. Everybody voted for the winners, since there was only one ticket. The losers were tho people. Some of the young fellows now sing- Ing in the so-called top night clubs are ,enough to make a fellow wonder whether repealing prohibition was really such a sound idea. Ernest T. Weir, planning to retire as board chairman of the National Steel Corp., started as a $3-a-week office boy. Success stories will continue, but not many with starting pay of $3 a week.

WASHINGTON.' — One thing you can expect to come out of the crisis, in the Kremlin is a visit by Eisenhower's old wartime I r i end, Marshal Zhukov, to Washington. It has b e e u known that the President has been talking far some time about inviting Marshal Zhukov to the United States. He 'felt • that the' former Russian commander in Berlin was a man who would understand straight-from - the - shoulder old soldier talk. And the President, as an old soldier, cherishes as bis dearest ambition the hope of bringing peace to the world. In the past, however, State Department' and Central Intelligence advisers have discouraged an invitation to- Marshal Zhukov. They said he wasn't important enough in the Soviet set-up. Now things have changed, Zhu- kov has been elevated to. the pre r sidium, has thrown his weight behind Khrushchev, 'is one of the top men in the Kremlin. He could now be invited to Washington as Russian Minister of Defense without any necessity of a return visit by Eisenhower, as would be the case with Khrushchev and Bulganin. So don't be surprised if Marshal Zhukov comes io Washington. News Nuggets Another Mellon — The White House secretly sounded out tho, late Andrew Melloh's nephew, Richard K. Mellon, about following in his uncle's footsteps.as'Sec- retary of the Treasury. Andrew Mellon served in the Harding-. Coolidge-Hoover cabinets, set the fiscal policies that led to the last depression. Outgoing Secretary o£, the Treasury Humphrey recommended the Mellon heir as his successor. But Richard balked. He wasn't ready 'to take on the job yet, he said . . . Mellon 1 has been doing a fine job for the rejuvenation of his home'town—Pittsburgh —in cooperation with Mayor David Lawrence, Democrat. Nonsmoking Cabinet — It Won't please the tobacco companies, but a majority of Ike's cabinet has sworn off cigarettes. Following HID American Cancer Society's alarming report on smoking, the President asked his cabinet how many still smoked. Only four admitted ' they did: Labor Milchell%nd Secretary of Interior Senton. The remaining six members, plus Vice President Nixon, clamlde they didn't smoke. Ike said he handed his last pack to a friend several years ago and hasn't touched a cigarette since. Pentagon CetisorHhlp —Secretary of Defense' Wilson has boon blue- penciling his subordinates' speeches. Most often gagged have been Adm. Arloigh Burke, the Navy chief, who had nine speeches con- sored, and Secretary of the Army Wilbur Bruckcr who has had 'to revise seven 1 speeches, all since the first of tho year. Wilson ordered them bluntly to change their speeches or throw them away. Burke has had trouble before. He was head of the secret Navy propaganda office "operation 23," set up to work against the Air 'Force. As a result, President Truman refused to promote him, finally did so after great pressure from the Naval lobby. Wilder Tlie Woinc Idaho's 32-year-old Son. Frank Church, the bnby of the Senate, wowed his colleagues with his maiden speech on Hells Canyon. Even Sen. Itussell Long oi Louisiana, who's been against Hells Canyon, listened carefully. Later ho voted with Church. . .another freshman who Impressed colleagues with his first speech is California's congressman D. S. Saund, first Hindu ever elected to Congress. He delivered a short but stirring speech on civil rights, He told how ho not only won his clU/enshkp but a seat In congress, though he was a Hindu morn in India. "My opponent said that if I were elected to congress, because of tho color of my.skin the southern members wouldn't accept mo," Saund said. "Hut 1 wanted to show the world that In Uncle Sum's family there are no foster children. I beear testimony to thefact that the gentleman from Oklnhoma, Carl Albert, cume from nix state and campaigned for me; tho gentleman from North Caroline, Harold Cooley, setn, telegrams on my behalf; and the gentleman from Tennessee, Jere Cooper, pu-l me on the powerful foreign affairs committee. Thep all come fro msouthern', states." . . .Then Saund turned to his southern friends and added softly: "My wife and I play tennis in the morn- . ing. We set our alarm for-6 o'clock. My wife lets me steep until 8:15, but when the clock goes beyond that, the sheets and the blankets are off me. She stands there and she says, 'Honey, you are holding up the game.' No one is against those leaders from Ihe 'south who have • shown so much brilliance and patriotism. . .-all we are saying is: please modify your \vay of thinking. Look at the.clock.-Go ahead and don't hold up the game." Oulckle Tax Wrltc-Offs You're going to hear a lot more about the quickie tax write-offs given to big utilities. They're hard for the public to understand because they involve complicated finance, not hams or deep-freezes. However, the loss to the taxpayer runs into millions. Sen. Esles Kcfauver has just asked tho federal power commission to investigate the manner in which public utilities used the money they saved through quickie tax write-offs. The findings are interesting. , The purpose of the quickie lax wrlle-off is to give a company more money in time of. war or emergency for expansion not needed in times of pence. The Idea worked out when the Packard Motor Co., a year before Pearl Harbor, refused to expand its plant to make airplane motors because il argued It wouldn't need the planl after the war. • So thu government agreed to write-off the . cost of the plant in five years: Thus Packard would not be paying tuxes on an empty, unused plant •after the war was over. However, the power commission report sent to Kefauver shows that the utilities have been using this tux saving to declare dividends. In fact, Ebasco. the big utility manangernent concern, has been advising clients to do this. This means that American lux- payers, through the much-abused last lax wi'ile-off, arc paying part of utilities' dividends Io stockholders. Or put it another way, if your neighbor up Iho street has invested' in utility stocks, he will be gelling dividends from the money you pay in taxes. GIVEAWAY SHORTS PARIS (UP)—Police arrested a man who was walking around in his shorts in nearby Melun Wednesday nl(jht despite the relatively comfortable weather.

LAFF-A-DAY TRAVELING LIBRARY ; Angelo Parri Parties Teach Child Value Of Manners "How old should a child be to have a party?" Just as soon as he knows what a party Is, or means, Jie can enjoy it. The. usual way is to allow a guest for each,year of- the- child's life. A three-year-old can have three guests, and the number can -be increased on and on until the young person is of an age where a party has social overtones and financial : major chords .and so becomes a serious matter. Parties for Ihe younger children can be very helpful in teaching them good manners, the values of friendship, the obligations of it and the duties of hospitality. These can be big words but they can be reduced to the simple terms of "Come to my house." nnd crackers and milk, or on high occasions, ice-cream cones and birthday cuke. The party has family implications, loo. Everybody co-operates for tlie occasion, Tlio honor of t.'io family is. at stake. The house must be shining, the silver polished, the table dressed up and the family with its best foot forward. That creates the family spirit of all lor one and one for all. A child's birthday sets him apart in the seat of honor for the day. Special privileges like choosing his guests, choosing his favorite cuke, sitting at thu head of the table are his for the day. Given these honors, the birthday child 1 has a glow of importance, a feeling of being loved and wanted that lasts for a long time, ' even down through the years. Birlilxlay parties coll for gifts. All children love getting things they would not usually get, especially when they are wrapped in guy paper und lied with gayer bows. These are very simple for the little ones but as the children grow older they become more and more a matter of family contribution, The idea is that a birthday in the day set uslde for the Joyful celebration of a child's coming. That can add stature to any chl'd, old or young. Par-lies cull for games and these must be planned for as cnrefuJTy us the refreshments.. Tho purly room must be considered. Space, loo, ami the age and mental power of the group. Keep pencil and paper games u bit easy on' the children, maJdng thorn easier than they can accomplish, so that the party atmosphere Is ,not changed to that of the schoolroom. As for kissing gomes, I vote No, Thoro li- qulle.enough of that' Ingredient In our lives today nnd the children can well skip it for tho occasion. The older boys and girls have u' hand In the planning of tholr parlies und can do much of the work, as they should. With u bit of g-uldunce from the hend of tlie house, they do very well. Biit parlies, of course! * * « Heading 'stimulates thinking, develops character and nfleots, behavior. Every child will benefit by reading good books.

New Pipe Developed for Delivering Animal Feed • URBANA, 111.—Farmers may soon deliver feed to their livestock through plastic pipe, R. M. Peart, Unlvorslly of Illinois agrlcullural engineer, said a feeder dlslribulor system was bo- ing tested that would enable (arm-' crs to distribute feed through a 1'A-lnch plastic pipe. The blower consists of'two counter-revolving wheels In a housing, Peart said, that create a wind blast In tho feed pipes. He added that if the 1 .system is successful, tremendous changes will occur In livestock feeding. Distribution systems now in use consist of various types of mech- anised bunk feeders run. by small eloclrlb motors. The most common type Is u partially enclosed nugor that' distributes- thu feed along the bunk. paper, P. Box »9, Station'G, New York 38, N.Y. (Moused by The Boll Syndicate, Inc.)

He regards himself as "a dedicated . (personality." He told this reporter: "I live for one reason- to help people." That has nothing to do with whether he is right or wrong about Krebiozen, but it is a measure of the man. There he was, a top man of 'medicine' and science, with his world threatening to col- Oapse.'His friends told him to accept the report and recant. Otherwise he would be destroyed. He pulled back not one iota. And this despite the fact that Dr. Durovic had dissolved the only existing supply of the white powder in mineral oil and had divided the oil into 200,000 ampules. That meant it would be extremely diBficult if not impossible to obtain the kind of minute chemical analysis which would reveal what Krebiozen was, chemically, and which' exact science requires—as a matter of course.' Ivy said this was the only time he was tempted to "pull o-ut." Durovic said he had done it "thoughtlessly," ,with the idea of preserving the powder's potency. Storm Al University The Chicago Medical Society, a constituent part of the AMA, was moving to punish him for allegedly violating a cardinal medical ethic — promoting a "secret remedy." A storm was rising at Hie University of Illinois whose, president, Dr. George ,D. Stoddard, was displaying a lively interest in Ivy's activities. Stoddard appointed a committee of medical professors vwsed in cancer, to evaluate all Krebiozen- troated cancer cases which now numbered several hundred. It reported Krebiozen had "no curative value," which Uvy had never claimed, but "we cannot stale that it is entirely devoid of biological activity." U said the prime question was "Ihe nature of •the material" and un'Jl that quos- iton was answered, no further attention should be given to it. Sloddard appointed another committee to undertake as thorough a chemical analysis as was (possible of a substance dissolved in one of its own .solvents, which meant it was utterly dissolved. As they have consistently, the Duro- vics insisted upon iron-bound 'protection of their commercial rights (which this reporter does not imply is wrong—there is pirating in the highly competitive pharmaceutical Industry.) The Durovicjj judged the protection offered as insufficient and Uvey did not supply ampules for analysis. Ivy Makes Appeal Stoddnrd'.s reaction, was to restrict further ICvobiozen research on university premises. Jvy appealed to the Illinois Legislature, on the grounds that Sloddard struck at academic freedom. A legislative commission, began an investigation of what by now wa» "the Krebiozen affair" in March, 1953. The Ivy-Durovic side put mw the commission record this charge: Dr. J. J. Moore, treasurer of the American Medical Assn., conspired with the two business men either to get commercial control of Krebiozen or suppress it by ruining the Durovics. Moore, it was charged, had influenced Wermer into distorting and even "faking" parts of the AMA's lOO-casa report. Stoddard, it was added, was drawn into" the "conspiracy. 1 As set forth in the record, this charge struck the reporter as exceedingly flimsy. But only t-h« commission was C)iialified io judge . and the 12 of the 14 members who attended the final meeting, unanimously cleared Drs. Moore and Wernier of the conspiracy charge, as well -as the businessmen and Stoddard. The commission had high praise for (he integrity and selfless devotion to mankind of Ivy who, meantime, had lost his post as university vice president. Stoddard had •had it abolished. As to the Duro- vics, the commission found that in the qbsence of any evidence to the contrary, it could not conclude they were "other than men of good character." Only Sloddard was criticized — tor having been "u:i- tactful." A few months later the university trustees forced him to resign. Hole In Itoiwrt But all this is what Ivy calls "a side-show." On the scientific side, Ivy opened a hole in the 100- case report by showing that 2-1 of the 100 cases came from a young physician who said he was a "cancer expert" but had been in practice less liian three years, an3 besides 23 of the 24 had been the cases of another physician who did not agree with his appraisal. M those 24 are thrown out, 76 remain. They came from s i x physicians who arc or were lone luis. since died) unquestionably cancer experts whose inletfrily is no more challcngenble than Ivy's is. This reporter knows thai theso physicians have not changed their original views in the least. You can't blame medical doctors for iwt wanting to be quoted in a n'usly controversy over a life-or- doath matter, but Dr. Alton Ochs- iicr of Nrw Orleans, who.se forth- nughlnc."* matches his standing as a cancer expert, permitted himself Io be quoted. He ami his associates treaU'd 21 advanced carcinoma patienls with Krobiozen. "In nol a single instance couW we note any effect, cither subjectively ur objectively," • he said. "Because of this an.d because of the experience of other .similar invesligivlion.s, I became convinced Ihat Krobio/.<.m has uo offoel oji cancer. I feel quite sure Krobhw.on is absolutely without value and should not be used." Memorial Day Air Crash May Bring Disciplinary Steps WASHINGTON (UP)—The Navy said today it may have In take diseipliiiary action as to result of the Memorial Day neriul collision of two jcl aircraft nt Minneapolis, Minn.

Final decision awaits review in the Navy judije advocate's office. , The spokesman snid "11 appenrs that tho flight was Inlten without authority, the pilots were not qualified for tlic flight undertaken and therefore it appears thai disciplinary action is Indicated."
