.PAGE FOURTEEN THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE andLLOGANSPORT PRESS, LOGANSPORT, INDIANA SUNDAY, OCTOBER !W, 1WT Toastmasters Note Birthday At Dinner • •/ : The 33rd birthday 4 of Toastmasters Internatonal will be celebrat- ' .ed locally and throughout the land during Ms last week 'of October, according to Wellington C. Holmes, retiring president of the Logansport Toastmasters Club. . Holmes explained- that the . local Toastmas- i-ens Club will observe this anni- 'versary by a dinner party at the West Dining Room of the Ben Hur, Monday evening. -A number of prominent local couples have been'.invited to help, celebrate the event. • . . Today, Dr. Smedley, the founder, is witnessing the burgeoning of that, idea of Toastmasteiing.'into a great*, organisation of more than 2500 Toaetma&ters Clubs, with more' than 73,000 • members. New clubs have joined the organization at the rate of one a day during .the past three years.' Clubs are found throughout' the English speaMng world. Among 1 service 'groups. Toastmasters is the fourth in the.number of clubs. . '. Started In 1924 • Organization of Smedley' No. 1 Toasbmtsters Club an Santa Ana', Wednesday,-October 22, 1924 was designed-to aid its members' in thinking-and talking on bheor feet before audiences, large or-small. To- help achieve that purpose Dr. Smedley "evolved the procedure'of ' having the members criticize ~ one another's speeches. "Evaluation" it is called now by Toastmasters. That, basic plan is- still the'founda- tion of Tosastmasters "procedure. - From the ; original conception-of "public speaking", .has evolved ; the general ,progr.am of training in all aspects of effective corhinunica- tioin. Chairmanship, conference leadership and participation, tech niques of communication for the business executive, bhese and many other facets; of modern needs • are studid and practiced by the members. ' Each club is limited'to 30 members, so that virtually ..all of them participate in the speaking . 'discussions of their two hour meetings. ...... "The 'world.at.laiige regards Toastmasters International as a school .of speech, buf it is far more than that,".explains.Earl R. Palmer, executive vice-president of local club 621-11. "Learning to speak and evaluate the. speech of •others, and your own, is like practicing- scales before playing in. a isympibonie concert. If., a man can evaluate life and learn to be ar" itaculate, he oan become a much (more valuable 'citizen." The great appeal of Toastmasters is ithe training in impromptu and prepared speaking, in learning- to handle parliamentary. procedure and the conduct of meetings, .so that the;member can (handle himself' ably in any situa-, tion. . .= .. .-.,..-,,. " Proof of Toastmasters appeal is. furnished by the array of prom inent executives and leaders wh< have been drawn to its ranks. I has helpsd them to- become bi, businss names, and for the per sonal satisfaction that comes frorr being able to-speak articulately* Present .Officers Preseni; officers of the loca Toastmiatfiters Club are president Wellington C.

' • From the beginning o: the dangerous situation which developed when Syria, charged Turkey with plotting' aggression, the . Saudi Arabian monarch .has worked untiringly to prevent an explosion. Saud has •-conferred with fche leaders of Turkey and of Arab countries, . • v -.' • Finally, he offered personally to act as mediator between _Turkey and Syria.. •. . 'The big-contribution of Egyptian President 'Gamal. Abdel- Nasser, who likes to fancy himself as the No. 1 Arab leader, was ...to send Egyptian troops' and warships -to Syria at the most serious stage 'of the dispute. •'•-.. Offered To Fight All , Syria's pnnRussian leaders have breathed fire and offered'to take on ail comers — presumably. including .-the Unied States, which was supposed to be in. the alleged .plot—in event of war.:, , The pitiful record .of both- £he Syrian and the Egyptian 'armies in the Arab-Israeli war, and in last year's Israeli .invasion .of Egyipt, did not seem to niake a fight'to the death likely against Turk-ey'-s powerful, tough-army of 500,000 men. 'Soviet Russia, of course, was a prime contributor to the tension and helped build it up stage by stage with'threats agains Turkey. King Saud was not able to do anythbig as regards Russia. What he did do was to work with Middle Eastern countries themselves, as an Arab and as ajellow Moslem with the Turks. Saud Sides With Syria As the situation developed, Saud promised to side with Syria, one of its colleagues in the Arab League, against, any "aggressor. ' Saud knew that -neither- Turkey nor the United States had-any intension 1 of attacking Syria', Under'-pressure, Saud also found it advisable-to say that 'he never •had formally' accepted the Eisenhower Doctrine against Communist aggression in -the Middle East. That was true. 3ut Saud:had accepted the doctrine in fact because with him Communism ranks beside Israel as an enemy. : The Syrian-Turkish 'situation has been simmering down for some days, despite Russia's attempt to keep it boiling. . 'Saud"seems, iriUhe process, to have. made, it clear-that'.he, not Nasser, is the leading, figure among die Arabs. .
