SufCiicenl Parking Facilities Bypass Requires Unification Logansport is not the only Indiana city which has been having trouble obtaining a bypass. South Bend's experience should serve as a warning of what may be ahead for us unless we continually exert pressure on the state administration to go ahead with plans for a. Logansport bypass. The South Bend bypass was promised by Governor Craig last year and was already under construction when work was halted in February of this year on grounds that sufficient funds were not available. Nothing has been done on that bypass since. "One of the errors we have made in the past," said F. R. Henrekin, executive vice-president of the South Bend Chamber of Commerce, in commenting on the bypass stall, "is to relax our efforts as soon as we receive a new promise or a new assurance from some one in authority in Indianapolis. This time we will not relax. We will exert continuous pro-bypass pressure on the state administration until the entire new road is actually in use." Logansport should profit by South Bend's experience and continually demonstrate our unanimity of opinion in favor of the bypass project until the Indiana Highway Commission makes it a reality. Exhibit at Poznan The United States exhibit as the international trade fair in Poznan, Poland, features a reconstructed bungalow, typical of the kind occupied by thousands of Americans. Most Americans would find nothing unusual about the home. Yet to the people of Poland it represents unbelievable luxury. As a matter of fact, the Communists have been trying to convince people that such homes are impossible for American workers to buy. The idea of our exhibit is not to dazzle those who come to see it. To do that would be to create enemies for ourselves. Instead, the very fact that such homes are bought and paid for by American workers is a way of selling capitalism. In effect we are saying to the Communists that a fair share of the fruits of labor can go to those who labor. We are giving the lie to the Communist myth that workers must be exploited in any state which does not embrace the teachings of Karl Marx. The American exhibit at Poznan will inevitably raise questions in the minds of spectators. If your system can bring such a standard of living to the average working man, what can be so terribly wrong about it? If communism is so much better a system for workers why can it not produce a similar standard of living? These are questions the Communists will not be able to answer.

Drew Pearson's MERRY-CO-ROUND INDUSTRIAL BLESSED EVENT? Tuesday Evening, June 18, 1957. Drew Pearson says: U.S. Treasury is in a mess; government can't float its bonds; interest rates on U.S. Bonds have Increased national debt. WASHINGTON — By an ironic twist which the general public doesn't realize, George Humphrey is stepping out as Secretary of the Treasury just as the Treasury is in one of the worst messes in recent history. To quote the Wall Street Journal; "The Government of the s United States is in a fiscal mess. The Treasury of the richest nation on earth is short of money. At one point this spring it had hardly enough cash to pay a week's worth of bills." Yet Mr. Humphrey has been hailed as the strong man of the cabinet and one 'of the greatest secretaries of the Treasury in history. The 'fact is, however, that victory bonds have .been selling at $86, the same panic levels at which millions of people sold ami took their losses on'Liberty bonds after World War I. In addition, the Treasury's interest rate for long-term bonds is at the highest point in history, despite which the bonds can't be sold to the public; The recent .$4,200.000,000 bond offering at 3% per cent for 57 months was a complete bust. The investing public just wouldn't buy. • On top of this the Treasury has . to raise $55 billion to cover maturing bonds in the next 12 months. Yet it has now given up all hope of raising money through long-term bonds. and gone back to short-term notes. Bankers In Control One of the big campaign issues of the Eisenhower administration, was to get away from short-term, hand-to-mouth financing. To accomplish this, one of the leading businessmen of the nation, George Humphrey, was made Secretary of the Treasury, while the actual job of revising fiscal policy was put under Randolph Burgess of the National City Bank, a strong critic of the government's past bond policy under Henry Mor- genthau. Burgess is married to a great-great-great-granddaughter of Alexander Hamilton, first secretary of the Treasury and the father of American fiscal policy. One of the first things Burgess did was announce that he would take $170 billion of the government's debt and put it away in long-term bonds for 20 or 30 years. To please the bankers, he also jacked up interest rates. This was his worst mistake. After he had hiked- interest rates on one bond Issue, he couldn't go back to lower rates on other issues. The bankers and the investors wouldn't take it. So the cost of handling the national debt today, because of increased interest charges, is about the same as the cost of the entire government budget during the peak days of WPA and PWA, when many business leaders were denouncing tfie high cost of government. Meanwhile, the government has enough money to last through * June. But $4 billion will be needed in July. In. August, the Treasury faces another $15% billion in maturities, with another $8 billion in October. Though part of these are held by the Federal Reserve, at least $9 to $10 billion are in public hands. These public investors are finding that they can get a better return from the stock market or in municipal bonds. They don't like having their money tied up in long-term government bonds when runaway inflation is daily depleting the value ot the dollar. You can write it down, therefore, that as long as inflation continues, the Treasury will face an almost impossible problem of floating its loans. No wonder George Humphrey is anxious to exit as Secretary of the Treasury.. Navy Slaps Back You can't prove it, but it looks as if the Navy had decided to retaliate against congressional economizers. It has ordered an abrupt close-down of the Elizabeth City, N. C. Naval facility. This Naval station is in the district of North Carolina's Herbert Bonner, chairman of the House Merchant Marine and Fisheries Committee and a leading budget- cutter. His votes have been considered anti-Navy. You can't get anyone at the Navy Department to admit this, but it seems highly unusual that the Elizabeth City Naval Base should be closed, for two reasons: 1. It is a blimp base used to patrol the . Atlantic coast for submarines; and more Russian subs have been lurking off the coast than ever, watching guided missile operations. 2. Elizabeth City happens to have the only two hangers that can accommodate the new blimps ordered by the Navy. When they are delivered, they'll have no place to go except Elizabeth City—unless new hangars are built, which would certainly be no economy. _ If you ask anyone at the Navy about this, all you get are smiles. However, it certainly looks as i£ Congressman Bonner is getting slapped and slapped hard. Note—The cost to Elizabeth City will be a $3,000,000 a year Navy payroll. Other areas around the U.S.A. are beginning to learn what budget-pruning means, as other military facilities are closed down. Headlines and Headaches AFL-CIO President Georga Meany told only half the story when he accused General Electric of mishandling its workers' welfare fund. Company spokesman John Callahan admitted in a sworn statement that General Electric pockets as much as ?8,500,000 a year in dividends from the welfare fund. Yet half the money was contributed by the employees, who get no dividends . . . Incidentally. General Electric turns over its entire insurance business -to Metropolitan life insurance without consulting the workers or calling for bids. G.E. Chairman Philip Reed, who handles all the company's finances, also happens to be a director of Metropolitan Life . . . The White House claims Ike retired the Presidential yacht, Williamsburg, to save the taxpayers' money. Yet the Defense Department is still operating another yacht, the Sequoia, for top Pentagon officials ... It makes a dozen cruises a month down the Potomac, loaded with partying officials. Cost to the laxpayers: $23,529 a year, not counting the salaries of the 24-man Navy crew . . , Though yachlless, Ike is still keeping up the Presidential launch, the Marjie, which he has renamed the Susie E . . . Gen. Joe Smith, military air transport commander, expropriated the officers' club at Andrews Air Force Base the other' evening for his own private party. However, he invited most o£ the base officers to the party. LAFF-A-DAY Angelo Patri Each Child Has Rights, Privileges John Henry, aged thirteen, slapped Tommy, aged seven. Tommy howled to high heaven: "Moth-er-r-r-r. Johnny hit me." "Now what's all this about? John Henry, you ought to be ashamed to hit your little brother. What's the matter with you anyway?" "Make him stop pestering me and I won't have to slap him. I'm trying to fit this wing on my plane. I have to take it to the teacher tomorrow morning, and just when I have it right he shoves my elbow. He did it a couple of time. I told him if he did it again I'd whack him but .good ar.d he did and I did." "You're the oldest. You're supposed to have patience with your little brother. You are forbidden to slap him. Take your belongings and go to your room. Maybe you will behave better if you are alone for a while. A big boy like you striking a little fellow. There, there, Tommy. Come along and see what mother has for you. And remember, let big brother alone when he's working." Brothers and sisters squabble until they are old enough to have gathered the insight that experience with others brings. Then the squabbling stops. But until then the younger ones who love needling their older brothers and sisters should be held responsible for their misbehavior and not allowed to go scot-free while the older ones are penalized. The fact that one child is older than another does not deprive •him of his rights and feelings. He should have the same consideration as the others, and not be made to bear the'teasing and the interruptions the younger ones choose to inflict upon him. Nor should the older one be forced to carry responsibility for the care of the younger ones to the exclusion of his own desires, needs and castes. This leads to selfishness on the part of the younger ones and breeds resentment and dislike in the put-on child, Certainly, a family of children should share in the lives of all but not to the total eclipse of any one member as sometimes happens. How often one sees an older sister or brother sacrificed to the younger ones. This began in childhood when a busy mother said, "You're the oldest. Give it to him. You're 'Jie oldest. You should take him with you and look after him, and the like." Let the children share whatever experience confronts them in such'a way that no one of them suffers or benefits too much by it. Each has his rights and privileges. * # # Some children are slow at play and slow in school, but Dr. Patri explains in his leaflet P-ll, "Slowness," that rhythm develops faster motions in a child.

Condon Tells County Needs For Teachers "The vacancies in these leaching areas are characteristic of a like scarcity, to be found throughout the state," declared Cuss county Superintendent of Schools Chalmer Condon Monday, when he released the county teaching vacancies for the 1957-58 term. Condon, who said that at least lour county schools are adding a teacher to offset increased enrollment, revealed that the following vacancies currently exist: one high school principal; 2 English and social studies teachers; one English teacher; one coach, who can teach social studies; two industrial arts teachers; two teachers of agriculture; three music teachers; and two primary teachers. Condon said that he expects a considerable increase in student enrollment over the 3,530 pupils of the previous' schoo! year. To serve these pupils, 1B4 teachers were employed in the county in the school year 19M-1957. Hike Rates On Express WASHINGTON (UP) — The Interstate Commerce Commission authorized Monday an II per cent rate increase on Icss-than-carload Railway Express shipments on eastern railroads. Exempt were fresh fish and seafood, flowers, and water cress. The increase- becomes effective upon 15 days' notice and is to be applied to rates in effect Dec. 26, 1056. The commission said it found that present express rales "penalize eastern carriers and unduly reward carriers In other areas." purpose of (jhe rate boost, it said, is lo "reduce that portion ot the eastern railroads' deficit which is attributable to the handling of express traffic." In granting some exemptions, the commission said these commodities are in direct competition in eastern markevs with southern producers. If the increase was applied to these products, it said, eastern producers might be forced to abandon markets in which they presently compete. , Railway Express had asked for <a 15 per cent boost. It scuglv no increases for milk, cream, newspapers, or human remains. Plans New Residence In Noble Township •A now $10,000 dwelling will be constructed on the Royal Center pike in Noble township by Richard J. Holley of 210 Sevenlh street, according to a building application Monday with Commissioner Bob • Buck.
