THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE PROGRAM FOR IOGANSPORT 1. An Adtquat* Civic Ccnlu 3. An Adequate Sewage Dispotal SytMm 3. Sufflicent Parking Facilitiii The Heat's Still There With the tremendous amount of money that is spent each year on. school buildings, repair and maintenance, it is only logical to assume that some steps would be taken to insure proper ventilation of Berry Bowl. The stifling heat generated by the usual capacity crowds has probably caused more colds and discomfiture in Logansport than any other single factor. The combination of excessive heat, and then after the game going outside into the cold while still wet with perspiration, has never been conducive to good health. Compared to the hundreds of thousands of dollars spent on school building and maintenance, a small sum of money spent on ventilating the Berry Bowl would reap an untold return in better health and better humor for the thousands who attend the games. There is no valid reason for not correcting the situation. Dealings With Canada It may be trite to say that Canada is like a young giant flexing its muscles, •• but the comparison is so apt as to bear •repetition. In a variety of ways, our neighbor to the north is coming of age and taking an increasingly significant part in world affairs. The fact of Canada's emergence is of special importance to the United States because the two countries have enjoyed a harmonious and mutually beneficial relationship in the past. It is more vital than ever before that this successful relationship should continue. '... As Canada grows and becomes more self-assured, the problems .of U. S.-Canadian relations are bound to be more complex than in the past. It is a fair guess that much of this complexity will spring from our economic dealings with the Canadians. For this reason, it would be good to have rather frequent meetings—at least once"yearly—of the joint U.S.-Canadian Committee on Trade and Economic Affairs. This committee was formed in 1953. Its meeting last October ' was the first in two years. - Every two years is not often enough. This was recognized by the board of directors of the Chamber of Commerce of ' the United States, which recently urged . the U. S. government to call for more frequent meetings and declared that "grave problems of trade and economics are more susceptible to solution by early and frank discussion between the parties, than by being permitted to grow in complexity and thus cloud Canadian• United States relatic/ns." It is a. sound ar.• gument that should be heeded in Washington. IN THE PAST One Year Ago Everett England, 32, of Delphi, was injured fatally when he fell 46 feet from the new electric light plant under construction here. Cass county farmers < voting in the Corn Referendum voted 2-1 in favor of the Soil Bank proposal and against the acreage allotment plan. Twenty-seven school children escaped injury when their Washington township school bus was struck by -a pick-up truck two and one half miles south of Logansport. John Berry, Royal Center, won the junior division title in the Cass county 5-acre corn crop contest, with an average yield of 193 bushels per acre. Alma E. Floyd, 86, a lifetime resident of Cass county, died at her home in Royal Center. Ten Years Ago Mrs. Lena Stephens, 1260 Smith street, was Injured seriously when struck by a car in the block of South Sixth street. J. Van Brown was named Rochester city attorney, succeeding Hiram G, Miller, who resigned. Paul Sagers was elected president of the Cass county conservation club. Mrs. Laura Sargent, 83, of 129 Ninth street, died at Memorial hospital. Twenty Years Ago James Dalhover, last survivor of the Brady gang which shot and killed State Trooper Paul Minneman near Royal Center, was found guilty of murder by federal jury in South Bend. The death sentence was recommended. Work on a room in the city building for the police radio station was due to begin within a week. Dr. John B. Davis- was elected head of the medical staff at St. Joseph's hospital. Mrs. Louis Jane Rousb, widow <>f. Benjamin Roush, died at h(;r home in Monon at the age of 78. Fifty Years Ago . Harry Mackey, 14, stopped a team of runaway horses pulling a wagon oh East Market street just as they were about to crash into the glass front of a shoe store. Asa Carter, assistant city electrician, invented 'a device which, if attached to a clock would turn out the light at a designated hour. Orders were given to streetcar motormen and conductors to stop flirting with young lady customers! The Panhandle Railroad shops 'were planning ' to lay off a number of workers. Elias Bookwalter, of BethleJiem township, died at the age of 86. Wednesday Evening, December 11, 1957. Drew Pearson's MERRY-GO-ROUND "BOOKIE" WORMS Drew Pearson says: Nixon and Adams struggle for White House power; Jim Hagcrty tried to block Nixon from going to Paris; Missile program vs. balanced budget is involved. WASHINGTON - The biggest backstage story in Washington today is the struggle for power between Vice President Nixon, the man who is almost certain to end up in the White House and assistant President Sherman Adams, the trmn who was| hitherto run Ihel White House. Ill involves the future S of our missile pro-lf gram, the future] of Uie presidency.! and the future o:"| the United States.] In the middle is| Dwight D. Eisen-l hower. In the op-} posite wings orb Adams' si.de arc! astute Jim Hager-' ty and the: White House staff; on Nixon's side, powerful Republican leaders including Attorney General Rogers and to some extent Secretary of State Dulles. No harsh words are being ex-' changed. Both sides are discreet and circumspect. Vice President Nixon ;;s careful not to appear to be trying to step into Eisenhower's shoes. Nonetheless, the battle is very real and bitterness crops out in unguarded moments. Here" are the details of the struggle: Long bei'ore Sputnik, Vice President Nixon was battling backstage to meet the Soviet challenge, and to heck with the cost. He knew, as did everyone else in the administration, despite the strict secrecy ban on information to the public, that the Soviet was forging far ahead in missiles, satellites, and almost every modern .weapon. Nixon Blocks Adams His opponents were Secretary 6E the Treasury Humphrey, Secretary of Defense "Wilson, and Adams. I; was Humphrey and Adams, who, two years before, after Ike's heart attack in Denver, had blocked Nixon's quiet move to assume more authority. They let him preside at cabinet meetings _ and national security council meetings, but that was all. Humphrey and Wilson, however, have dropped out of the cabinet. Sherman Adams remains — efficient, tight-lipped, devoted to Eisenhower, determined to block Vice President Nixon from assuming too much authority, and still anxious to balance the budget. On the day the President suffered his minor stroke, Nixon and Attorney General Rogers moved into the White House. Rogers is the ab';e young man at whose home Nixon conferred most o! the night immediately after Ike suffered his heart attack. This time they remained at the White House all day. Nothing was said, There •were no arguments, no harsh words. But Nixon politely made sure that he would be on deck in case of serious developments. Simultaneously, secretary Dulles lined up on his side by sending unofficial word to Paris that Nixon would probably substitute for Eisenhower at the NATO meeting. Also simultaneously, Nixon let it be' known that he, not Adams, would preside at the White House meeting of congressional leaders if the President was not able to attend. New Hampshire Feud Flares While this was going on, Senator Styles Bridges of New Hampshire, one of the most powerful Republicans on Capitol Hill, publicly called for Nixon to take over as acting President. Bridges is a Friend of Nixon's. He is not a friend of Adams's. Both once served as governor of New Hampshire. Both are powers 1 in New England politics, and in Washington. But neither likes the other. Bridges even sent word' to toe White House that he would stay away from the meeting of congressional leaders unless Nixon, not Sherman Adams, presided. It was intimated that he also spoke for Ser.ator Lyndon Johnson of Texas and the Democrats. ' Significantly, when the congressional leaders met at the White House, Shurman Adams was not present. Uiiually he sits in the front row, but not this lime. Fortunately the President had recovered sufficiently to preside part of the time. Before this, however, and while Eisenhower was still in his bed- room, Jim Hagerty had come charging back from Paris. Hagerty has never cared much for Nixon, and it was apparent, following his return, that Jim's sentiments had not changed. '-Hagcrty Gets Mad Hagerty persuaded Dulles to make no final decision on whether Nixon should attend the Paris meeting, but keep it open until later when Eisenhower himself could- personally approve the appointment. This accounts for the fact that the State Department had sent 'one set of instructions to the American embassy in Paris that Nixon was coming, while the White House was giving out a contrary statement that Eisenhower might come. To reassure the nation and because Nixon insisted, Hagerty a- greecl to let Nixon use the White House for an unprecedented news conference. As far as newsmen can remember, no Vice President has ever held a press conference in the White House before. Nixon then announced that he would preside at cabinet meetings and at the meeting with legislative leaders. He also told reporters that the President was having difficulty finding words to express himself.. This infuriated Hagerty. For Hagerty had told the press that the President was having difficulty only in pronouncing certain long words. It was immediately after this that Hagerty retaliated against Nixon by announcing that Eisenhower might'go to Paris. Later Eisenhower presided over both the cabinet meeting and the congressional conference, even though he talked quite slowly and was tired. This boxed off Nixon. The President however, took 'no part in the struggle, did not even know what was going on. Thus continues the silent, backstage battle for power in Washington. Plan Family Night At Young America The Young America Masonic lodge family night will be held at the Masonic hall dining room Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. at which timij a supper will be-served. "Ham and rolls will be furnished by the committee. All are asked to bring two covered dishes and table service. LAFF-A-DAY Angelo Potri Be Yourself To Attain Popularity Judging by the letters that come my way popularity is a problem foi many boys ami girls in secondary school. The early teen-age children seem to be mos'j- anxious about it; expressing it in such wistful statements as: How can I get people to like me? What should '\ do so as to be nominated for something? My name is never mentioned. Girls don't take to me and I don't see why. I'm always left cut of things. I have but one prescription for this complaint. One that sounds too simple but really .is not easy to take. "Be yourself" When one imitates a popular classmate one must know that it is an imitation personality that is being displayed and nobody is deceived by it; nobody accepts it.. Nothing is gained by it and something: very precious, ono's own unique personality, is forfeited. So try to be yourself. What sort of Self are you? Think that out! Then the essentials of a likable, trustablc Self? To have a friend it is necessary to be one. So make yourself friendly, which is just another way of saying, be helpful. If tinere is in your group a shy boy or girl, smile at him, make a remark of some sort to him even if it is no more than a grouch about the history assignment. But smile in co-operative feeling about that grim assignment. You' will have made a friend right there and ttien. When the group is having a hatchet session don't be the first to swing yours. Lislen. Keep listening. When the tirrre comes for you to speak put in a soft word for the victim. If you can't speak kindly, honestly, keep still—just smile and keep Flill. When this happens two or three limes the group will have learned to trust you. You have established a reputation for friendliness. Hold to it. There can be no real solid basis for popularity in a group without a moral standard. This need not be worn on one's lapel. It is usually the silent voice that makes itself felt in what one dues not say, does not approve, does not do. This in itself can be about the strongest bid that can be made for popularity among the best of the student group. So, to be popular, make friends •with yourself by being friendly, kind, helpful and considerate and by setting a mora' standard for yourself which stands like a bulwark to protect yourself and your, friends from, making serious mistakes. Don't envy, don't imitate! Be your own best self. You are unique. You can be a wonderful person just by respecting that fact and making good on it. Teach Safety At Early Age WASHINGTON ('UP: — "Tea.ch safety like we leach the Bible in Sunday school." That,was the long-range theme of the public officials traffic safety conference today as de!ega:es voted on proposals designed to make streets and highways safer for motorists and pedestrians. Safety would be taught at an early age when behavior patterns are being established in an individual. Conference • delegates meeting with the President's Com- miltee for Traffic Safety also considered plans for immediate action to slow and if possible pnd highway slaughter. The proposals included raising the age at which drivers! licenses may be granted; stiffer inspection of motor vehicles; and more rigid enforcement of traffic regulations. These and scores of other proposals were offered by delegates after Monday's opening sessior. of the conference. One workshop, composed of educators headed by D.B. Varner, vice president of Michigan State University, came up with the idea to teach safety in the same manner the Bible is taught—at an early age and from then on. in this way, the educators felt, winen the small fry reaches driving age he may be a better citizen toth as a pedestrian and motorist .ind will help reduce the present annual toll of 40,000 traffic deaths.

Ironically, before he could fight the enemy he was compelled to defeat appeasement • minded British leaders. His admonition is still pertinent. "Each appcaser hopes that if he feeds the crocodile enough, the crocodile will eat him last." The big Desilu news last week was the purchase of both RKO slu- dios for $6 million. For Lucy and Desi, love and laughter have s-dfied up to success and happiness. However, they weren't always so certain of a rosy future . . . Following their merger, serious doubts about the durability of the union were voiced by friends. The doubts were shared by the bride and groom. As Lucy candidly declared: "Marrying Dcsi was the most daring thing I ever did. Hollywood gave our marriage six months. Me? I gave it six weeks." And now they have ?0 trillion. Leonard Bernstein has secured one of the musical realm's magic wandc—the baton of the new York Philharmonic. It is a notable a- chicvemcnt, of course. Mr. Bernstein had been climbing toward the pinnacle since he was 10 years old and heard a live symphony orchestra for the first time. After the performance, there was an ovation for thi; conductor. Bernstein, however, failed to join the applause. A friend asked: "What's the matter? Don't you like it?" "No," explained Bernstein, "I'm so jealous!" It begins in the darkness and ends with a radiant explosion. Like a rocket . . . Julie Harris collected another set of shimmering notices for her performance in "The Country Wife." Only about 7 years ago. she was among the countless hopefuls challenging Broadway. Miss Harris had minor roles in 8 straight flops. Then the great bleak- r.ess was supplanted by the Big Break. When asked what animated her acting career, she explained simply: "Because it was in me" J . . Her common-sense attitude toward stardom is refreshing: "No one ever reaches true stardom Jii the theatre, because no matlor how bright your name looks in lights, you Jiave to keep trying for greater achievement." In other words, do your best— then try to do better. Dr. Winchell, the psychiatrist, lias frequently noted that life acute sensitivity of playwrights to criticism steins from the fact that artistic creations are their children. And how many parents can accept criticism of thoir children with equanimity?. .Ketti Frings, who dramatized Thomas Wolfe's "Look Homeward, Angel" smash-click, •made this relationship clear prior to the drama's premiere by writing: "I could not understand my feeling of depression the day 'Look Homeward, Angel' went into rehearsal. I tried to analyze my mood and came to the conclusion that the reason for it was, though now that I had born the baby, I could not stand doctors and nurses hanging over it, cuddling and cooing at it After so long living with my child, I felt lonely and empty. Postnatal blues." Kim Novak has a date with Aly Khan and the news attracts beeg headlines, Aly Khan's dilly-dolly- ing seems to collect more newsprint than the opinions of world leaders . . . Aaid just 3 years ago- Miss Novak toured the country as a model. The tour ended in San Francisco. However, she had the railroad ticket rerouted to Ktolly- wood and planned spending scv«r»l weeks there. Result: A screen lest, a contract—and Kim Novak began Iier leap from obscurity to stardom .and alykhan. Teresa Wright, another exile from Holloywood arrives on B'way in "The Dark at the Top of the Stairs." Despite the^Movieville accolades, Miss Wright'is no stranger to Broadway. Her click in "The Little" Foxes," originally attracted movie offers . . . Incidenlally, she is one of the few to fulfill (he traditional crystal-balling that goes with graduating from high school. She was voted as "the most likely lo succeed in show business." In her second flicker (".Mrs. Miniver", Miss Wright made the prophecy a reality by winning an Oscar. Queen Swellizabclh and Princess Margaret made a happy splash in newsprint by appearing publicly in daring evening gowns — low-cut and extremely gec-whizzy. Possibly the moral of (he .story is that even a Queen or a Princess can be as alluring as Jaync Mansfield. After all, the ultimate accomplishment for a lovely girl is to demonstrate that she's lovely. And, in the final analysis, beauty is a form of royaltj'. The stock market's recent wild gyrations illustrate again that nobody knows which way the ticker will jump. Wall Streetcrs frequently comment that "if you make money, it is the result of judicious speculation and shrewd investment. If you lose money, H is the result of gambling on the market" . . . There arc no mathematical formulas for getting rich In Wall Street, of course. There Is much to learn, however, from the wily observations of successful financiers. When Baron Rothschild was asked how his family built its financial empire, he explained: "By always selling too soon." Dr Edward Teller, chief architect of the H-bomb, has been telling Uie nation some grim truths. He has warned that the Sputnik? repre.?cnt a worse defeat for this nation than Pearl Harbor. Of course, there is a certain amount of peril involved in telling people melancholy fact.?. This reporter is an authority on the subject. We were lambasted for reporting news which later became historical facts .. . It's about time the complacent were aroused. You only invite nightmares by going to sleep. Every successful individual requires luck. In addition, he should be lucky enough to be equipped with talent. Kirk Douglas, who is talented, knows the decisive influence played by good fortune. He frankly slates: "I'm a guy who fell off a load of fertilizer and landed in the movies." Improve Ski Facilities at Indiana Park INDIANAPOLIS (UP)—'Indiana improved its toboggan and ski facilities today, hoping to attract more winter sports enthusiasts then ever to Pokagon State Park. The State Conservation Department announced it has rebuilt a 1,780-foot toboggan slide in the park and bought 10 new toboggans. Those who dote on a speedy trip down the slide can make it in 17 seconds from a 60-foot tower, according to Kenneth Cougill, director of state parks. Tiie park now has 30 toboggans available, for renting and hopes to bring in more dollars fror. this source than the $3,325 taken in in the 195C-57 season. Cougill said the park is opening new ski trails for the first time in several years, in anticipation of the opening of the season which begins with the first heavy snow and continues to March 1.
