Two Logansport, Indiana, Pnaros-Wbtm» Russia Seeks tcrBecome Power in Mediterranean SOVIET Russia seems to be making a determined attempt to establish itself as a Mediterranean power. Several motives have been suggested for the current movement of Russian naval units into the Mediterranean from both the Baltic and Black Sea.

But two of the three submarines are big ones which Egypt could iot possibly man even if they were suitable for its use, presumably in •blockading the Gulf of Aqaba to Israeli shipping. v Turkey Feels Squeeze The two big ones may have been moved in to spy on the powerful United States 6th Fleet which is based in the Mediterranean. As regards the "maneuvers" explanation for the presence of the surface craft, there is good reason to believe that Russia is making a show of strength for the benefit ol . the Arab countries, to demonstrate church organizations.'. It was Mr. Honans third trip to Europe. He spent two weeks in Germany landing May 14 at Bremerhaven. He also visited Rotterdam and Amsterdam. He ,then visited Paris and Le Havre, France. Honan said Bing Crosby Says Popular Music "Trash" WASHINGTON- (UP) — Crooner Bing Crosby struck a harsh'note Sunday night in commenting on popular music played on radio and television. He labelled it just I NO PRESSURE FROM ARMY, SAYS GIRARD "so much trash.' Crosby'told the Senate that approximately $40 per month and archetects $20. On account of the high cost of gasoline traffic consisted of motor scooters, bicycles and small cars. However he said many modern buildings were being put up in West Germany with extra wide cement sidewalks. Rev. and Mrs. Forest Howell and son, Todd, have moved to 1 Indianapolis for residence where he will serve the Wesley church. A delightful farewell party was given to the Howells sponsored by the that the 6th Fleet has no monopoly Congregation. Following the bounteous dinner Charles Smith served in Mediterranean waters. The movement probably is intended also as an answer to the recent visit of British warships to Turkish ports in the Black Sea, •which Russia likes to think ot as a •private lake. Turkey is somewhat disturbed by the Russian activity. For more 't/rian a century, Russia has been trying to break Turkey's control of the Dardanelles Straits, which links the Black Sea with the Mediterranean, in order to gain free access to the Mediterranean. Turkey is acutely aware of its delicate strategic position. It is Treaty the only North Atlantic country except Norway which has a frontier facing the Soviet Union, and Norway's is only a few miles wide, far above the Arctic Circle. , On its southern frontier, Turkey has Syria, which is now ruled by a government even more pro-Russian than Egypt's. And Bulgaria, a supine Russian satellite, borders on European Turkey. Hence Turkey views any Russian move like the present one as part of a design to encircle and isolate it. Continue Power Bids As regards Russia's ambitions in the Mediterranean, the present bid started when the Soviet government arranged for Communist Czechoslovakia to supply Egypt with arms.

He laid the blame squarely on the doorstep of Broadcast Music, Inc. (BMI), a song-publisMng organization owned by the radio-TV industry. The singer asserted that the networks and broadcasting stations are depriving the public .of "first rate" music by favoring tunes on the airways over songs written by composers of the rival American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP). Crosby, wiho has warbled every type of song from ragtime to rook 'n' roll,-levelled the charges in a letter to Sen. Warren G. Magnuson, chairman of the Senate Commerce Committee. In New York, Robert J, Burton, vice president- of BMI, said the Crosby letter was "part of a continuing effort to prejudge a^jttry •trial" in a law suit brought by ASCAP members against BMI. .. Crosby told Magnuson that he himself had not been "pressured'] into singing anything." But he said "subtly and by inference my] cooperation has certainly been solicited."

SHOP - SECOND FLOOR LAWBENCE, Kan. — Scientists may soon. come up with a plan much like putting a lid.on a bottle :o aid .the nation's drought-stricken regions by. cutting evaporation of water. The plan, called the monomO' ecular film method, involves the use of a compound that will spread out over the surface'of a lake, reservoir or pond .somewhat as oil covers the surface of puddles of wate.r on a street. Since most arid regions lose more water annually through evaporation than is used for agriculture irrigation, industry and in cities, the experts predict a great new water source when the process is perfected. Dr. Buell W. Beadle of : the department of chemistry and chemical engineering at the Southwest Research Institute in San Antonio, Tex., said the efficiency of the film on Jarge lakes is unknown. Experiments on large bodies of water are planned later this year. Beadle demonstrated the theory of the plan at a University of Kansas engineering conference. The Harmless compound used to spread over the water is hexadecanol, which is floated on.a lake in a raft cage. The compound remains at a thickness of only one molecule but with the molecules so tightly pack, ed together that evaporation is greatly reduced. Such compounds would be odorless, tasteless and harmless. The film spreads out from the solid material and stops when the surface is covered. Any break in the film caused' by boats, fish, swimmers or even rain is covered immediately by more film generated' from material in the raft. Dr.-Beadle said the first to benefit would be farmers and ranchers with small stock pounds and cities with small reservoirs. Experiments have shown the film reduces evaporation by <as much as 45 to 60 per cent. Beadle said there remain problems to be solved before the film is practical. One is caused by bacteria in the water whjch tend to attack and destroy the film.
