PAGE FOUR THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE-and LOGANSPORT PRESS, LOGANSPORT, INDIANA SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 1957 Editorials... Road Numbering Needed In County Motorists seeking a farm home in Howard county will have their task made much easier for them w.hen a new rural road-numbering system is put in effect within the next few weeks. Cass county commissioners would do well to investigate the possibility of inaugurating a similar road marking system here. It would be particularly helpful for the county sheriff's department and the fire department, both of which frequently must make -rush calls to various farms in this area. The reduction in fire losses alone due to road numbering system should more than pay for its- cost. ,. In Howard county- it is costing $8,631.88 to place road number signs at 533 intersections. Kokomo is being used as the center of the numbering system. For example a road intersection six miles north of the city will have a sign, "600 N", while one four miles east of Kokomo will have a sign, "400 E". A farm home four miles southwest of the city of Kokomo might have a sign, "200 S, 200 W", indicating how far a motorist must go in each direction to reach that destination. It is only a matter of time until every county in the state will adopt a road numbering system similar to that 'being put in use in Howard county so that rural travel will be no more haphazard than city travel. We hope that Cass county will be among the first to recognize the advantages of such a system. George E. SOKOLSKY These Days SNOB APPEAL A; fellow asked me why I am not swell; why I don't go to the opera on Monday nights when the swells go; why do I go on Saturday afternoon when nobody goes but old women and little girls. So, J told him that I go to the opera house to hear music and not' to see weary men and listless women calculating the cost of dresses, diamonds and such trivia and making a financial state-' ment out of what they see on a ' women's back. As a matter of fact, were. I on hand ; on such an occasion, I would wonder how many of the baubles are borrowed because it is quite fashionable for jewellers to lend a gaud to a dame with the hope that she might eventually induce her husband to buy it. After all, they're insured and a loss is as good as a sale, maybe better. % • LOTS OF DECENT, musical people want to buy tickets for the COOKING 08 ML McElroy's Wise Act Defense Secretary McElroy's order, restoring 170 million dollars previously cut from basic research funds was a wise and far-sighted action. It is especially important because it underscores a new recognition, at top government levels, that sacrificing basic research for the sake of paper economy is the worst kind of penny wisdom and pound foolishness. This has not always been recognized, as was revealed by the'very cut in research funds which McElroy has now rescinded. The nation had fallen into the complacent belief that we would inevitably stay ahead in matters scientific. The launching of Sputnik, with its implication that Russian rocketry is far advanced, deflated that smug belief overnight. It should not be supposed that former Defense Secretary'Wilson cut back military research funds in August simply because he did not realize the value of such activity, or that McElroy has now restored the cut entirely because he knows better. Wilson's action was taken partly in response to strong public pressure for economy in government; McElroy, two and a half months later, is reacting to public demands that we speed up military research and development and once again take the lead. The pity of it is that something as dramatic as an earth satellite was required to jar the nation but of its lethargy. This was in great part the fault of our leadership, which had neither "sold" the public on the great importance of research, nor given it any clear idea of how fast the Soviet Union was progressing. Now we have been alerted. We dare not lag beh'ind again. of the seats are bought by who care nothing about who believe that is a Greek from "Aida" was written bj somebody called Verdi who must be .a friend of Frank Costello or ,why would he have a name like that? Well, let us not be snobbish about their ignorance. These people do know how to make money, which is a virtue of some kind, and it is aH done so that the figures can be presented to the Internal Revenue Service without fear or trepidation. Also some of them have tlheirs in tax havens and profit havens and such places and are doing very well, thank you, AND ONE MUST respect ability where it is found but why go to the opera, to sit through the period of observation prior to the first act, maybe squirm through the first intermission and then go to a night club to Men to a sultry voice sing a jingle with lyrics that are doggerel, fihe acme of which is that June rhymes with moon? But what rhymes with "Sputnik"? It is funny how history, repeats itself.

The happy bridegroom has a lovely young bride — and happiness makes the most beautiful music. The love story was touched by fate's) customary whimsical flair. It all began when Kathy Grant's parents who hail froml Texas,' decided to! vacation in Holly wood. While stroll ing in Movieville : j an agent stoppedj her and suggested] she try for a mo vie' career. The result was a' Paramount contract. For the next 18 months the studio practically. ignored her. She had bit roles in several minor flickers. And then the studio dropped her. What appeared to be a'period of failure now represents the most successful time of her life. While at Paramount, she met King Bing. the horror of constant rebuffs and the terror of near starvation. Her gay spirit has endured despite unhappy marriages, ill health and setbacks to her career. Even the incident thai made her a clown was a painful experience. She was a minor singer in a Broadway show when the star became ill one night and Martha replaced her. In one comedy skit she was supposed to stumble, down the stairs. When doing the bit she tripped and took a header. ,When she landed—the audience,, thinking it was part of the. act,-was hysterical with laughter. However, Martha had nothing to chuckle-about. Her arm was fractured. .„.".' In the wonderful realm of show biz this is The. Year of Sinatra.

Teddy Roosevelt Centennial Knifed When President Eisenhower at- tended Centennial Church Services for Teddy Roosevelt on Sunday, few members of .the congregation knew that one of Ike's chief lieutenants on Capitol Hill had,previously scuttled a resolution calling for National Honors to Teddy. Earlier this year, Sen. James Murray (D., Mont.) introduced a resolution designating 1958 : as'a Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Year. This was to be in honor of The First National Conference- on Conservation called in 1908, by Roosevelt and his chief forester, Gifford Pinchot. Murray's resolution was backed by 63-senators and received unani-- mous approval in-the .Senate. However, when it got to the House Judiciary Committee,- Kenneth Keating of New,York, an Eisenhower. Republican, led an onslaught on-the bill that emasculated its provisions. .As. a result, it never did get a final okay from Congress. Keating comes from the same state that sent Teddy Roosevelt to fortune into' a shoestring.' LAFF-A-DAY want a raise, sir—uh—juet a smafl ooe.
