Thursday Evening, June 20, THE PHAROS-TKIIUNt PROGRAM fOK lOGANSfOXT 1. An Ad»qixrt> Civic C*n!«r a. An Ab»quol« Siwogi Dupoiol System ). SuHTlMirt Parking Facilitin Letter From Russia Every now and then some irate citizen writes to a newspaper and says, in effect, "You won't print, trjis, of course, because I disagree with your viewpoint." Almost invariably, such letters are quickly printed. To the enduring credit of the American, press, most newspapers in this 'country really mean it when they say that they will offer a hearing to both sides in a controversy. A classic example of the "I bet you won't print this" type of letter came to light the other day. It grew out of an interview between Turner Catledge, managing editor of the New York Times, and the Russian leader Nikita S. Khrushchev. :,In the course of this interview, Catledge *had remarked that no press censorship "exists in the Unitd States. A Leningrad housewife wrote a letter to the Times in which she challenged Catledge's remark about censorship and ; said: "Let us see whether that is really so. Print my appeal in your newspaper, straight, honestly, just the way I wrote it, without distorting or correcting anything, and send one copy of the newspaper to me." The Russian woman's letter contain- ed an appeal to "mothers of America," in - which she voiced the standard Soviet - propaganda line about American capital'_ ists prompting atomic war because they want profits and want "to drown mankind in a sea of blood." It is a tired old line, sagging with the weight of endless • cynical repetition by the Soviet propa- • ganda machine. But the Times printed the letter. Two copies of the editions containing it are . being forwarded to the Russian woman. - It would now be interesting to see whether the Soviet newspapers Pravada and Izvestia would print letters from American women explaining our point of view. Relief for Senators Senators Lausche of Ohio and Douglas of Illinois think the U. S. Treasury is not under obligation to pick up the tab . for them at the Senate restaurant. It has been going in the hole serving food for less than cost, and as a result the Senate proposed to appropriate enough govern- 1 ' ment funds to make up the difference. Lausche and Douglas said that although the restaurant item was relatively small, it violated a basic principle of government. Lausche declared, "I have begun to feel that granting subsidies is a disease." Nevertheless, in this case the "disease" continues. The Senate voted to continue the restaurant subsidy. The senators won't have lo start bringing box '.' lunches to make ends meet, after all.

Drew Pe.rion'i MERRY-GO-ROUND MOSCOW MULE Drew Pearson Says: Civil Rights Bill breaks up Dixie-Republican coalition; Mississippians offer deal on Hells Canyon to block Civil Rights; Congressman Colmer scolds Republicans. WASHINGTON. — The Dixie- Republican coalition which has operated so successfully for so many years is dead. This • was behind the furious statement of Mississippi's Congressman Bill Colmer who, turning to Republicans on the left of the House floor blurted: "I remind my friends on the left that there have been times in the history of Congress in recent years, during the Roosevelt and the Truman Administrations, as well as the Eisenhower Administration, when support from that section of the country known as the South has not only been welcomed but it has been sought." What he meant was that the Coalition which, has traded Republican votes for Southern Democratic votes to block bills favoring Negroes and bills favoring labor and public power was dead. The promise of more negro votes in 1960 plus the negroes' growing swing to the Republicans, however, was too" much. Even stanch Republicans who have been foundation stones of the coalition in the past deserted. Furiously and desperately, Mississippi's Colmer had tried to line, up deals with the Republicans to block the Civil Rights Bill. So had courtly Congressman Howard Smith of Virginia. This time Republicans refused to horse-trade. They spurned every offer. Deal on Hells Canyon?? The horse-lrading has now turned to the Senate, where Mississippi's cigar-puffing Big Jim Eastland has proposed deals on Hells Canyon in order to get trial by jury inserted in the Civil Bights Bill. Eastland even invaded the Civil Rights camp and approached such strong Civil Rights Senators as Jim Murray of Montana, Warren Magnuson at Washington, and Joe O'.Mahoney of Wyoming. Originally, Murray had come to Eastland seeking votes to approve a federal dam on IJie Snake River at Hells Canyon. Murray had lined up 43 voles, needed only five more to guarantee passage, "I need help on Hells Canyon," he told Ea.s-llanci. "I need help on Civil Rights," Eastland shot back. Obviously Murray was tempted. In Montana, civil rights is no problem, but Hells Canyon Is a big issue. But no dual, was made. Later, Kastlund went to Magnuson of Washington with a .specific deo!. He offered to deliver the necessary five votes to approve the controversial Hells Canyon dam, if Mognuson would line up enough western Democrats In prevenl Ihe Senate from stopping the fllibi/ster on 'the jury-trial amendment. Miagnu.son has been .sounding out lhi.'i colleagues regarding the offer. Meanwhile, Senate Democratic leader Lyndon Johnson Is doing his best to work out a civil rights compromise, !fe has offered to push through the civil rights bill if the proponents will accept the jury-trial amendment. Johnson i.s telling Senators privately: "Jim Kasllnnil knows wo have to have a civil rights bill. But he has K»t t« have a jury trial. We've got to give him a jury^trial amendment." Deals In HOUHC Here is how !.he Dixlc-flcpiihli- can coalition wont In pieces in the House of Representative;:. For 3 wliilr; at appeared U> bo thriving. Congressman Smith of Virginia had offered Southern support to kill the school construction bill, which conservative Republicans oppose, If Republicans voted for trinl by jury. He had nbso lined up Congressman William Mlllw of Loekport, N.Y., to kill the pro-public Nlgara Falls power bill if Miller, in return, sponsored the Irlal-by-jury amendment. In addition, the South offered Miller unolhor big concession. Southern votes were promised lo block the bill of Brooklyn's Congressman Ccller requiring corporation/) to notify the Justice De- partment before they merge. Big business wants to kill this, and Miller was guaranteed Southern support to do so if he would introduce the jury-trial amendment. However, on June 10, ex-speaker Joe Martin of Massa'chuvietts told Miller not to Introduce his jury- trial" amendment. Joe insisted it •would hurt the "Republican party. Let a Democrat introduce the amendment, Joe said, not a Republican. Martin had been working closely with the White House. Sherman Adams at the White Hotisc was determined not to have any Republicans lined up against civil rights. Miller bowed, told Martin that if he considered the matter so important he would stand aside. Ho then notified Congressman .Ed Willis, Louisiana Democrat, that he could not introduce thu Jury-trial amendment. This lt;ft southern lenders In a jam. They knew that the jury-lrial amendment was certain lo he defeated if Introduced by a southerner. So they approached Congressman DeWitt Hyde, the Maryland llepubllcan. Earlier he had championed the jury-lrial idea, but this time he backed down. Ife knew the While House and GOP leaders in Congress did not want lie-publicans in any way identified with hamstringing the Civil Rights Bill, Southern Democrats carnu buck to Miller, urged him lo inlrncluce tluj amendment. They had supported his friends on the Mohawk Power Company fight in the pus!.. Ho could not walk oul on Hie Soulh now. From the other side, Miller got pressure from his neighbor at Ho- Chester, N. Y., Congressman Ken Keating, and from Les Arendx of Illinois, the GOP whip. IIu was really on the spot. 11. was his original amendment, fie had Hindu an Impassioned Kpcech for It last year. 'H« slootl up fur It consistently this year. He had his briefs and speeches all writlen. Flnnlly h« indiculed lliul If no one else would Introduce It he would. At the fast minute, howcv.'r. Congressman Russell Kenney, new und eonucrvalive Republican from Lincoln's homo slate, volunteered. After a conference wilh Congressman John Dowdy, Texas Democrat, lift offered the IriaHiy-jury amendment. . GOP leader Joo Martin was taken completely by surprise, Bawling oul Keeney later In the presence of ollinr congressmen he said: "Tlinl wn« the most stupid, most Ignorant thing I have ever seen. You have Interfered wilh and hurt Urn Republican parly, T shall never forget what you Imvc done." The eg/{ came long before tlio chicken.

LAFF-A-DAY Angelo Patri TV Cannot Take Place Of Teacher There is discussion nowadays about the teacher shortage and Boards of Education and the P.T.A.'s are searching for ways lo meet it. One suggestion is the use of television in teaching big classes or small ones as the case may be, but its use to loach large numbers of pupils at one time Is stressed as an economical and teacher- saving device. Television In a useful educational tool but any tool demands skill In its usage. The proponents of this plan have in mind Ihe services oE a masler-teacher. For this kind of teaching to function that teacher needs to be a mauler, indeed. A nnnster-lencher would need good listeners. Consider, Suy a secondary school group of fifteen hundred children—thai Is the number one eager planner set—sitting in an assembly hall listening to a TV lecture on an, How long will the student listen with attention, absorb Ihe Inslrucllon, Interpret und store it In memory ready for lliii recall lesl? How long is such a student's attention spun? "Hut there will be an 'aide' to sue that llio students puy ullcnllon," Oh, yusV Ask any teacher of secondary school about forced atlcntion. Let us bo honest, sensible and constructive here. TV can be a lino tool for Lho tcuchnrw' use but il cannot Uiko thu place of Ihe classroom leuchor. No machine can replace Ihe human being's power of communication und this teacher's is a poculinr sort of communication, It demands tlio personal presence of the tencher, •the . close contact of mind with mind, the Cooling of a meeting, warm and confidential that arrises between teacher and taught. No modianlenl device can cvur tit) tills. Telling und showing do not teach. They are but the beginning of the process. They must be .followed by direct explanation lo clour any point a sludunt mimed, and unmo always miss, Allonllon, .however concunlrulcd, will lapse. Nothing IB fixed In mind, norves and mus- clos without repetition and. practice. The TV master-teacher cannot attend In this. Hrsl, it does nnt lend Itself l» remedial work. It seems lo me that to use TV wisely thu clanoroom teacher should present the lesson and Ihcn Ihe TV teacher could enlarge upon it. After Dial the clamroum tuaeh- cr teaches, t losts, reviews and drills. All sch'ool people will recognize the pattern of teaching and learning set down here. And no TV or any other machino can rculaeo the skilled-classroom teacher. TV Is a tool, not a lender. Ship Crash Toll Twelve BHJEST, France (HP) — The abandoned hulk of the tanker Stony Point burned fiercely otf this "Land's End" port today, a blazing memorial lo 12 seaman killed when it collided early Wednesday with the freighter lo- nnnis. The loannis, a 9,345-ton Greek molor-tfrcifihler, limped Into Brest under its own power late Wednesday night. Harbor firemen helped lo quench the fires still blazing aboard. Rescue vessels from five na• iions picked up (M survivors, In- chiding 1st engineer J. Taylor and •chief mechanic Ji\mes Trlff, botli of the Stony Point. Taylor and Trl-ff were the only Americans involved in'Ihe wreck.
