Suffiicenl Parking Facilitiei Asian Second Thoughts * While the first reactions to. the launching of Sputnik II reveal a loss of American prestige abroad, there wil!.,be many changes of heart when the processes of second thought are set in motion. Then, a number of Asians in the neutralist countries of Southeast Asia will become anxious and apprehensive. For many intelligent ' and democratically minded neutralists are aware of the fact that they could not hold firmly .to their political views if there were not a strong and non-neutralist United States capable of curbing the aggressive actions of the Kremlin clique. In some of the Middle Eastern Arab countries, attitudes most likely mil be different. The blunt fact appears to be this: Many Arab leaders are gloating with a false sense of power -because the Soviet Union has forged ahead of America in the race for space and the development of the intercontinental ballistic missile. In Syria and Egypt there' appears to be joy. But it is Syrian and Egyptian leaders who have taken the lead in opening the doors of the Middle East to Soviet infiltration. However, we can expect that in India, Burma, Ceylon, Malaya, Singapore, • and perhaps also in Indonesia, Sputnik II will produce apprehensive second thoughts. Many people in those areas will continue to reject the idea that the Russians should be followed because of their Sputnik successes. Future for "Squares" There is a warning in reports that some high school students are hostile to those "squares" who are intelligent and study well. Teen-agers really know little of life and of the affairs of the world. Those of them who sneer at "squares"' seeking to develop their minds may be storing up trouble for themselves and for America in the. years to come. Every idea which man has discovered has been attained at a cost of pain and anguish. If stupidity.makes a boy or girl hep, then it is evil to be one of those who are hep. This kind of hepness today might produce helplessness tomorrow. To a very considerable extent, .the future of this country and of a free - world depends, on these teen-age "squares" who try to develop their minds even though some of their classmates are ignorantly and childishly hostile to them. It is better to be out of popular favor today and to learn, than it is to grow up to become a dope. • The double-barreled cigaret holder has its merits.

Sharp, 80, of route 1, Peru, was bound and gagged_ by three men who' took $3,000 from a safe in his home. Representatives from mental health associations- in 21 counties served by Logansport state hospital met at Longdiff for an all-day orientation program. Logansport high -school's football team was ranked 15th in the final state poll. Three fire companies were called to put out flames that swept the hillside in the 900 block of South Eighteenth .street. No damage was caused. A money sack containing $50 was reported missing from Edward Spencer's, filling station at 601 West Market street. . Ten Years Ago The City Transit company, Inc., petitioned for on increase in bus "fares to ten cents. Nancy Lee Correll and Bernard Kindlespadcer, bothfof Peru, were married. . ,The city began decorating streets for the holiday season. , Pearl'S.

Drew Pearson Sayt: Six Army satellites in Alabama warehouse .will now get their chance; Revelations in this column helped dust them off: Ike's speech- writers Iliad difficult time getting material for his missile speech. WASHINGTON. — There were some interesting backstage factors behind the Defense. Department's decision to launch i one of the six Ar- 'my satellite? which have been gathering dust in] a Huntsville, Ala..I warehouse for a-| bout six months. Factor No.- 1 .was new .Defense. Secretary Neil McElroy, who is[ faster, mc>re ven-' turesome than I good Old Charlie' Wilson. McElroy is also on tne spot and wants to get off. He made the decision to let the Army fire, despite the earlier decision in favor of the Navy. •• Factor No. 2 .was this column o£ • Oct. 25, revealing for the first time that: "The Army has six satellites .in a warehouse in •Huntsville, Ala., all ready to launch. They could have been'launched before the Sputnik, thus keeping' the U. S. A. ahead of the USSR and preventing one of the greatest psychological defeats .the United States ever suffered." -Factor No. 3 was Dr. Wernher Von Brauii, the Army Missile, expert, formerly operating for Hitler, now an American citizen, who has been conferring quietly with Navy expert John P. Hagen, in charge of satellite ' "Project Vanguard." Their quiet cooperation led to Navy Acquiescence in giving the Army first crack at catching up with Russia. Budget Bureau Veto One point readers have questioned me about is a paragraph in the Oct. 25 column which read: "About three months ago, the Budget Bureau, which operates directly under the White House,, actually sent auditors to .Huntsville to make sure the Army did not spend a nickel on .the satellite program." This 'sounds incredible. It's not .surprising some readers wonder • how this could have happened. The answer is' that the Budget Bureau learned that the Army had these satellites and figured it was trying to pull a "stunt" in order to prove that it had the best missile team in the armed services. 'Probably the Budget Bureau's suspicions were justified, because this was just around' the time of the Col.. Nlckersoi).. court-martial., Nickerson had written a secret memo, a copy of which reached this writer's hands, claiming that the Army was ahead of the Air Force in missile production and that Secretary of Defense Wilson was in serious error in stopping further Army work on an IRBM, or Intermediate Range Ballistic Missile. Unquestionably the Army would have gone ahead and fired its earth satellite, thus beating Russia, in order to defend Col. Nickerson and prove the efficiency of Army missile experts. However, when 'the Budget Bureau, learning of this, sent auditors to Huntsville, they gave flat orders that not a nickel was to be spent on, launching a satellite. It would have taken several thousand dol- ' lars to transport'the satellite to Cope Canaveral, Fla., and launch it. Furthermore, an order is an order, especially when it comes from an arm of the White House. So the Army missiles remained in their Alabama warehouse while Sputnik heat us into outer space. White House Ghost-writers President Eisenhower's solemn but confident television speech the other night' gave no hint of the frantic search his special writers conducted for some rocket-missile achievement which would make this speech more reassuring. Harried aides scurried between the Pentagon and the White House with secret papers describing what the three services are doing in the missile field. These were dumped on the desk of propaganda specialist Arthur Larson, architect ,of "Modern Republicanism," recently pulled into the White House Twenty Years Ago James Morrison, operator of a hunters lodge at Devils lake in Pulaski county, was in critical condition in St. Joseph's hospital after being shot accidently by a hunter. Betty Lee Higgle, a Peru high school senior, was named Miss Peru for the Armistice Day parade. Pherbia Thomas, sister of Lowell Thomas, lectured on the Far East at the high school. Andrew FouLs, 79, a life long resident of Chili, died at his home. A break in water mains caused a large mud bole at the corner of - Columbia and Chicago •treets. Fire destroyed the Fletcher, Stoner and com- |»ny grain elevator at Akron in Fulton county. Police were searching for vandals who cut -a ••bl* on the light at Eleventh and Spear streets. MM. Elizabeth Bowman, 76, died at the hom« rf her son, 1414 Spear street. from the U. S. Information Agency. Inside, the Pentagon', Assistant Defense-Secretary Murray Snyder, .formerly No. 2 man for White House Public Helations, directed" the search. He called in representatives of the Army, Navy, and Air Force and ordered them to produce "scientific accomplishments" for the President's.speech. '.'We must have something defin- ,ite and significant," Synder urged. The three services submitted 'papers that told about achievements already publicized. Snyder . showed most interest in the Air Force's "Operation Farside," which shot a research rocket into outer space, and tried to goad the Air Force into exaggerating its achievements. Though the Air Force lost contact with the missile after 2800 miles, Snyder wanted the Air Force to claim the rocket had .;shot beyond 4,000 miles. Air Force spokesmen explained the rocket may have passed the 4,006"-mUe mark and may still be travelling in outer space, but warned that the President would discredit himself with scientists if he boasted that the rooket went beyond the proven altitude of 2800 miles. Snyder disregarded this advice and the Pres- ident mentioned the 4,000-mile figure in his television address. Snyder also pounced upon the Jupitor nose cone which the Army had recovered after a 3300-mile trip that went 680 miles into outer space. The Army had intended to exhibit the nose cone at the Army Association Convention in Washington earlier this month, but Sr.yder ordered the nose held for Ike to unveil on television.' Missile Merry-Go-Round The Army satellites at Huntsville are projectile-shaped, and for that reason nicknamed "Baseball Bats.' ;| They contain telemetering equipment and transmitters, thus caw be tracked, like the Sputnik, They are nowhere as big as either Sputnik, varying in size from about 15 to 25 pounds. Sputnik II weighs Tialf a' ton , . ;. It will take four,' weeks to get the Huntsvillo satellites re-lested; re-checked, transported to Cape Canaveral and launched , . . They will be boosted into the air by the Jupiter C, the ICBM on'which the Army was ordered to stop work. The Jupiter C is a"'Restone missile plus Loki missile plus Loki clusters. Two Jupiter C's have been fired, both successfully. The second, which dropped a letter on the Air Force, to show how far ahead the Army was in guided missiles, is the Jup. iter whose nose cone was recaptured and which' Eisenhower showed on TV. LAFF-A-DAY 4. Angelo Patri Feed Child Wisely, Well • Feeding children is a problem for many mothers. Grown people are usually convinced < that three meals a day are the correct thing for everybody. Of course, once'one thinks about it that cannot be true. Some people • do not eat breakfast. I know a man who eats just once a day, at night when his day's work is done. He is as healthy as a trout and just as frisky. His pattern would not work for many other people, though. . ••• Children differ from adults in their need for food and that is where the problem enters for their mothers. Often I get the question: "How often should this child be fed? He won't eat lunch." Or, "He wants to eat between meals." Or, "He won't eat." In my experience the time to feed a child of any age is when he is hungry. If he is a very young child say about two or three, watch and make a note of the times he seems to enjoy his meals most and feed him accordingly.' A little one- of this age does, no N matter how many rules • we set, jorce his family to make allowances for his peculiar needs of one sort or another and eating is & very important one. Schoolchildren need something to eat when they get home ire the afternoon. What'that is to be depends altogether on their needs. Each child indicates a preference for something—a sandwich'," a cup cake, a wedge of pie, a doughnut with'a glass o! milk. Whatever it is let him have it. No, it will not destroy his appetite for his supper. He will work oriplay.it off long before that. Active boys and girls need a lot' of nourishing food, much more than an'.adult usually cats these days' of fashionable slimness. Don't try to slim down . an adolescent boy or girl. That is a dangerous undertaking and only the family physician Should order it. He will do that only when , the child's health demands it. We ought to be especially careful 'of the adolescent girl' and tier eating habits. Slimness to the point of boniness seems to be the style. It is not a good style for these girls. They need to build sound- healthy bodies against the day when they need all the strength they can muster. There is a line between fatness and boniness and the girls in their teens should watch to see that' they do not get too far over the bony line.. Anyway whoever said that a skeleton was a pretty sight? Or "that a half-straved look was attractive? They are far from it. Here in this land of- plenty many children from homes where good food is a matter of course are not eating properly. It would be well to check this and make certain about the children's daily bread. . Mothers will find life simpler if they .have a routine .lor. taking care of their children.

Charge Current Laws Favor Large U.S. Corporations CHICAGO (UP) — Representatives of small business in the Chicago area pleaded for tax relief today in a special'hearing of the Senate Small Business Committee. George F. Connelly, a Chicago plumbing contractor and Clarence J. McCorkle, an automobile dealer, charged that present tax laws favor large corporations in such things as tax-deferred pension plan payments. They said owners of unincorporated business and partnerships are unable under present laws to set up pension plans, stock bonus / plans or other such devices from which corporation officials in large companies benefit. Connelly said the small business: men were'not asking for tax ex- exemption, merely relief. •The committee, headed by act- Ing Chairman Wayne Morse CO- Ore.) heard approximately 20 persons give oral testimony. Written . statements from other small businessmen were read into the record. - " Sen. Edward J. Thye 'R-Minn.). also present at the hearing. Sen. Paul Douglas (D-I11.) joined the group for the hearing. Spokesmen for the Chicago Electro-Plating .Institute, a trade association of about 300 small ( electro-plating shops, urged passage of 85 House and Senate bills which would amend the Internal Revenue Code. They said tax relief for small business was necessary to counteract the effect of increasing mergers 'in big business. The hearings were one of a series the committee is holding to. sample opinion throughout the nation. NEW EGG CANAPE ' CHICAGO—For an excellent appetizer, try an egg spread on crackers.
