THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE PROGRAM FOR LOG AN 5 PORT 1. An Adtquat* Civic Cwit«r 2. An Adequate S«wag» Disposal Syit*m 3. Suffiic*nt Parking Facilities FROM OTHER PAPERS— Don't Encourage Thieves Some timely suggestions for vacationers were made a few days ago by the Kokomo Police Department. If they are followed faithfully by families planning vacations, the number of residential burglaries should fall off sharply. The-police urge you to protect your home against thieves by telling your postman about the temporary change in address, and by cancelling milk and newspaper deliveries until you return home. A row of untouched milk bottles at the door, a pile of folded newspapers, a stuffed mail box—these tell thieves that the house is temporarily vacant. Another suggestion is to arrange to have someone cut your lawn. An uncut lawn or drawn shades also advertise that you are away. You can ask the police department to keep an eye on your home, too. Notify the police and tell them how long you will be away so they can check on the house from time to time. Inform a trustworthy neighbor of your plans and give him or her your vacation address and phone number. Lock all your windows and doors, and avoid leaving cash, gems or valuables in the house. And once on the highway, be careful about picking up hitchhikers. They may be just after a ride, or they may be after something else. Don't flash a roll of money in front of strangers, and remember that an unlocked car is a sure temptation to thieves. Many vacationers have long been in the habit of taking such precautions. Others forget, and appreciate being reminded. The police department is doing a good service by calling attanlion to vacation suggestions. (Kokomo Tribune) The postmaster, general announces that 1,685 government forms have been eliminated by his department since January, 1953. That at least partially makes up for omitting one Saturday's mail deliveries. A 10-mile Northwest expressway costing 120 million dollars is expected to be completed in Chicago late in 1959. By that time most of the cars caught in the present traffic jam should have found a way out. Those television cowboys are quick on the draw. They can have both guns out before the announcer can pronounce the name of the breakfast food that sponsors IN THE PAST One Year Ago Born to Mr. and Mrs. James Boyd, 21I5 1 /: Kasl Market street, a son, Joseph Kevin, at the SI.

Drew Pearson's MERRY-GO-ROUND MY LADY OF THE DUNES Saturday Evening, June 15, 1957. Drew Pearson Says: Canadians may divert part of Columbia River from USA; They are irked at Eisenhower Administration slowness in cooperating; Under 1909 treaty they have the power to do this. WASHINGTON— The new conservative government of Canada is going to present some real problems for the United States. The first may be the diversion of the Columbia River in Canada so part of it doesn't flow into Washington and Oregon. The Columbia is the biggest single source of electric power in the Far West, and the Canadians propose to tunnel their portion of this water off through British Columbia to the Pacific Ocean before it gets to the American border. In ebb seasons this might leave the giant Grand Coulee Dam in Washington looking about as empty as a Mexican bullfighting ring on a Monday morning. In the flood season it wouldn't affect American power from the Columbia. However, it would seriously stunt the development of northwest power in the future. There are three reasons for American concern: 1. Under a treaty wmcn we forced on Canada in 1!)09, each country has "exclusive jurisdiction and control over the use and diversion, whether temporary or permanent, of all water on its side of the line." Thus Canada can divert the Columbia and we can't do a thing in the world about il except howl. 2. The Eisenhower administration has been so slow about discussing joint plans for control of the Columbia that the Canadians had already appropriated $250,000 to study the diversion tunnel. 3. It was the liberal government of Premier St. Laurent which soft- pedaled the conservative British Columbia provincial government from diverting the Columbia. Now the pro-American liberals arc out and the conservatives are in power. .Ike's Man Goes Slow Part of the problem has been the vigorous opposition of American private utilities to supplying more water power to government dams at Bonneville and Grand Coulee. Built during the Roosevelt administration, these dams have been fought by the private utilities every inch of the way. The battle is now continuing over Hells Canyon. Canada and Ihe United States were supposed to get together to regulate the Canadian flow of the Columbia, so as to get more use of the spring flood which hurtle down to Ihe sea when Canadian snows melt in Ihe Rockies. Hut more water in the Columbia would mean more electricity for government power projects on the Columbia; so the private utilities have used their influence with the Kisenhow- er administration to hold back. This was behind Ike's appointment of ex-Gov. Len Jordan of Idaho to the International Joint Commission which deals with walcr regulation between Ihe United Stales and Canada. Jordan is a sl.anch opponent of public power and u staunch friend of the private utilities. He has even made speech after speech attacking lionnevillo Dam, considered by most people as a great boon to northwest industry. "Having him in charge of our negotiations wilh Canada," comments Sen. Kichard Neubcrgei- (D., Ore.), "is like having a mountain lion guard a herd of sheep." As a rosull of American dillydallying, the. Canadian delegate on the International Joint Commission, Gen. A. G. I.,. MacNaughton, persuaded parliament Lo appropriate $25!).nO(> lo study the diversion lunnel lo divert Columbia river wafer under part of the Rockies wor lo the Frasor river, whicli flows into the Pacific. This would be a boon to Dril- ish Columbia Industry, now growing by leaps and hounds. It has been demanding more power. And the provincial government of British Columbia, the .social credit parly which actually is to the right ol the newly elected conservative parly in Ottawa, has been hold back heretofore by the liberal government. Now the liberals arc out. So; wilh feeling running strong against the'U.S.A., a lot of trouble could develop for us on the Columbia. Canadian Ore Team The astonishing defeat of Canada's strong man, Trade Minister C. D. Howe, will be a blow Lo Secretary of the Treasury George Humphrey. Howe ^and Humphrey worked hand-in-glove to develop Labrador's iron ore for the U.S.- conLrolled Iron Ore Co. of Canada. Humphrey's M. A. Haana .Co. is a co-owner of Iron Ore of Canada, and Ihe C. D. Howe Co. was' an engineering eonstiilanl lo Ihis op- eralion. Howe, himself, has no di- recl interest in this concern, but members of his family arc, large stockholders. Another place where the interests of Howe and Humphrey came together was in Algoma Steel, in which M. A. Hanna has a substan- ial interest. Howe was trustee of the estate of Sir James Dunn, a large stockholder in Algoma Steel. WiiHhlnglon Pipeline Two appointees of the Senate Government Operations Committee who owed their jobs to the late Senator McCarthy wrote the resolution offering condolences to his widow and praising McCarthy. They are Richard O'Molia and Anne Gricbas. Only member of the commillce who would not sign was Sen. Margaret Chase Smith of Maine. She said, "1. am certainly willing lo offer condolences to Iho senator's widow, but J will not put my name to a eulogy of him. That would make me appear a hypocrite, since I voted for Ihe censure, resolution." . . . Republican Congressmen whisper that President Kisenhowcr is slipping in popularity. They base it on the increasing anti-Ki.sonliower mail that floods- I heir offices . . . Congressman Frank Bow III.. Ohio) even took his own poll. He sent out 115,0110 questionnaires to voters in his district who cast their ballots for Jlce two to one last year. Of the 25,01)0 replies he got back, one of every Jive said he would switch his voto if Liu; Presidential elections were held today. Hundreds more wrote, in that they'd vote for Ike again but not because they still like him. They simply like, Adlai Stevenson less, they said . . . O.s a result, of this .shifting sentiment, many GOP t'ongressmen are ignoring Ike's threal to support those who support his policies . . . GOI 1 leaders admit privately thai, they don't have a prayer of winning the Senate and only a slight chance of capturing tin; Mouse in the i!)5U congressional elections. Close Flooding Luke. 'INDIANAPOLIS UJ'Pl—Cataract Lake in Owen County was closed to boating and swimming this weekend because the water is nine feel above flood stage after •heavy rain lihis week, according to Konnclh Cougill, slate parks director. LAFF-A-DAY Angelo Patri Broken Home Harms Child Most of All When a home is broken by divorce, the children are the ones •who suffer most in the aftermalh. First, they lose the security of the home and the feeling of support and protection which bo'.h parents offer [heir background, spiritual as well as material. They lose one parent, usually the father. Fathers are as necessary in the upbringing of children as they wore in the beginning. Usually, loo. the 1 molh- cr must go lo work, lake care of children or even one child'.' Schoolteachers know about "latchkey" children. They have met them as six-year-olds and on up lo the teenagers. The little ones have a latchkey hung on n siring about their necks. They can get into the house, •the empty house or apartment, when school lets them out. Often a kindly neighbor takes such a child into her home. Oftencr he is nlor.e and looks for amusement or food or occupation wherever he can fir.d them, Somoliir.es there are relatives willing to lake care, of the children until their mothers gel. home from work. Orioncr, they, having troubles of their own or bcse.'. by ill feeling toward the divorced mother, will have nothing Lo do with her or the children, In some towns and cities there are nui'scries, Day Care Centers, that provide for the "latchkey" children. The very young ones who alLeml public schools have lunch there and can go to l.hc Day Centers if there are any. This liomclossncss, however modilied by neighborly kindness. Nurseries and Day Centers, is a ,sad business for Ihe children. Try as we may, our efforts lo make up to. children the loss of their home and family associations must, fail. There i.s no .substitute for a home and a father and a mother. But life follows its own laws; and Ihe broken home, having broken one or more of those, laws, mnsL bear Iho bitter consequences —the weight of whicli must fall on tile children. There would be no use in lalk- ing about Ibis if there were no hope of preventing tiic tragedy. If fathers and mothers slopped to Ihink .of tile consequences of their breaking up to the home and family, thought over what il must mean to the children and to themselves, there might be a chance, just a chance thai, ihey would reconsider and make some arrangement to gut along together and maintain a home for the children. There are times when any compromise is impossible. Then we must, make Ihe best of a bad sil nation and do everything possible to help the children so Lliey, loo, can make the most of a bad situation. Public Forum In a recent editorial you commended the high school leaching staff for its speedy commencement, program, limiting individual awards to one minute at the recent Commcneemcr.L exercises. I agree wilh you or. that fact, b'.il you go lurfhcr lo say lhat these awards be eliminated en- lirely on graduation nighl and be presented on senior achievement day. As T remember, Senior day was and is a school project, a day when academic awards of sub- 1 jccls taught in (lie school are presented. It i.s also somewhat a day of fun wilh the class will and prophesy, senior picnic, etc. The audience is limited to students, and I believe, parents of Ihe graduates. Don't you Ihink Ihe awards presented at Commencement are not only tin; slndenis' concern but also a civic matter? After all, you will agree Unit nil hough newspaper coverage lakes in the worthy achievements of teenagers, we are all too quick to skip over Iliese and dwell longer on the lic-famalnry accomplishments of Iho younger set. I say lets let the commencement proceed as in the pasl. Let the whole community see what youth can do, and although I knew only one recipient of an honor personally, I would like lo have shaken the hand of every graduate. They deserve commendation. Commencement is their night. Lei's j;ol take il away from them. All too .soon they will be "Just one of the crowd." Sincerely. Mrs. Loisnnn Mat-ten, Uoiila !>, city.
