THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE PRO3RAM rot LOOAHSPOn 1. An AdiquoU Civic Cwi»r 1. An Ad«qual» Smvag* Dupoial Syittm 3. Suffunnt Parking faclllti«i Control of Additives The subject of tightening federal, ]aws to control the addition of chemicals to food was broached again at the fifth annual meeting of the American Public Health Association in Cleveland. It is a subject which deserves widespread at- . tention, since all of us are directly affected by it. At present, the law allows processors to put chemical additives into food without first proving that they are harmless for human consumption. The burden' of making tests and proving that an additive is harmful rests upon the U. S. Public Health Service. Most manufacturers and processors are careful about what they add to food products, but it is unfortunately true that under the present law some harmful substances do get into the things we eat. For some .years, the Public Health Service has sought changes in the law which would, in effect, cause manufacturers and processors to prove the harmlessness of a substance before adding it to food. Congress has hung back, for one reason or another, but this is a change that would be greatly in the public interest. The time when most foods were simply that, without additives of any kind, has long since passed. Hundreds of substances are now added to a variety of foods to make them tastier, to preserve freshness, to improve their appearance, and so forth. Experts feel that some of these substances may be harmful to human beings. That warning signal should be heeded. It is only logical that until a substance has been reasonably proved harmless, if not beneficial, it should not be added to food. Moral Emptiness Celebration of the 40th anniversary of the October Revolution, held in Moscow, was one of the most hollow of our era. With all the display of military might, the total moral failure of the Russian Communists was evident. Behind the taunts, the boasting, the long-windedness of Khrushchev, there was, also, moral emptiness. The aims and ideals of the 1917 revolution have not been attained; worse, they have been perverted. Lenin came to power promising peace, and Khrushchev now has the biggest military machine in the world. In 1917 the Bolshevists fought imperialism, and Khrushchev is the world's biggest and most cruel imperialist. Lenin and the Bolshevik called for self-determination of the peoples, and look at Hungary —• not to mention the other captive nations. In 1917, the danger was that Lenin might be followed; in 1957, the danger lies in the weapons that Lenin's heir now commands. Take away Khrushchev's weapons and no one would follow him. According to William Henry Chamberlain, the journalist, a prominent British Labor M. P. who met Khrushchev had the following to say of the man: "He is very like Hitler in his ability to work himself into a genuine frenzy over quite imaginary wrongs and grievances." Before he joins Stalin in eternal shame, this man Khrushchev may turn out worse and more paranoid than even Stalin and Hitler. He is a hollow man and dangerous. Never could a revolution have had a more hollow heir or have been celebrated with so much moral emptiness. ! IN THE PAST One Year Ago Katherine P.

Drew Pearson Says: Dulles prepares Revolutionary plan for World Defenss; he wants Stevenson to help him sell H; Adlai would rather be Secretary of State than President. WASHINGTON.—If you get a glimpse at the advance plans John Foster DuUes has for the NATO meeting in Farisg you can readily! understand why! he wants Adlai I Stevenson to stand! by his -side tol give a helping! hand. Dulles wjllj need all the sup-[ port he can getl from Stevenson! and the D e m o -1 crats, since he is I not likely to getl much from Old I Guard Republicans. For he has worked out the most revolutionary plan of free-world defense ever contemplated in, the history oJ individual nations. So far it's tentative and subject to change. It depends in part on Stevenson's reaction. But what Dulles wants to sell is such a completa coordination of West European de; fense that France might give up her Navy to depend on the British, and American Navies, while England might give up long-range bombers to depend on American •bombers. Here are the outlines of the tentative work plan for Western Free- World Defense: 1. A pool of Western scientific resources, not only of scientists, but of laboratories and equipment; 2. A joint training program, whereby the best science students would study at any university, whether British, American or German. Thus an Italian student might go to Germany, a.Greek student to the United States. There would be an international pool of scientific training, 3. A military pool, as outlined above, whereby expensive land armies arc curtailed in favor of pushbutton warfare. 4. Finally, the United States and Englanc: would build up an arsenal of nuclear weapons and guided missiles in Europe. U. S. Guarantee : This involves the most revolutionary step of all. For what Dulles and Eisenhower will have to sell the smaller nations of Europe is that the Anglo-Saxon nations reserve the power to decide when Europe will go to war or when it won't. It will, be their decision as to when this stockpile shall be used. Eisenhower and Macmillan do not want to permit Belgium, Greece, Denmark et al to dip into the atomic stockpile when they may be worried about war; Only if England and tlie United States are ready to go to war. Selling this will not be easy. In order to sell it, Dulles proposes a solamn pledge that the United States will come to the aid of any free European nation if attacked; that we will go all-out to protect it with every weapon in the arsenal — Even if this involves retaliatory bombardment of American cities. This Is the trump card Dulles proposes to play, and this is where Adlai Stevenson comes in. Has job will be to keep the Democrats in line. f Fear Of Congress If you study the diplomacy of John Foster Dulles you come to the inescapable, conclusion that his chief failures haive resulted not from lack •»£ brain, but lack of courage. Today he has two great fears: One is Russia; the other is the Congress of the United States. And much as the administration is worried jtbout Russia, much as it fears then- IGBM and new scientific victories, even more it seems to fear Congress. In the past, Dulles and Eisenhower coulc'i always fall back on the Democrats for support. They knew they could expect little from such pillars of Repu.blica'nism as Sens. John Brickeri of Ohio, Styles Bridges of New Hampshire, BUI Jenr.er .of Indiana, or, in many cases, Bill Knowland of California. These stalwart GOPeers have been against almost every plank in the Eisenhower-Dulles foreign affairs platform, because basically Eisenhower-Dulles are following new deal foreign affairs policies. So Dulles knew he could fall back on the Democrats. Today, however, he can't, Tlie Democrats are irked, sore, and rebellious. They arc all too aware of the fact that the Republican national committee is continuing to mail out reams of publicity accusing them of getting the nation dnto two World Wars; still branding them as guilty of 20 years of treason. Democrats also see the Eisenhower missile-satellite setback as their polictical victory. And thy know that GOP Chairman Meade Alcorn has warned the White House • that public-opinion polls show Sputnik means political disaster for the Republicans. Sputnik, AJcorn has reported, is the basic reason for fantastic Democratic majorities in New. Jersey and New York. The Democrats know this, and John Foster Dulles knows that they know it. That's why he is clutching at the coattails o£ the once-scorned egghead, AdlaL Stevenson. Secretary of State Stevenson??? Close friends of Adlai Stevenson are firmly convinced he will never run again for President, but that. he does cherish the ambition to become Secretary of State in the next administration • — which he hopes and believes will.be Democratic. Stevenson's greatest interest has always been foreign affairs. He worked on British-American: problems in London during part of the war, was later the first to propose a Republic rather than a kingdom, for Italy; attended the San Francisco Conference in 1945 which hammered out the foundation format of the United Nations. During the Truman-Dewey campaign of 1948, John Foster Dulles campaigned so vigorously against •Truman that White House press spokesman Charlie Ross announc-' ed Dulles would not be welcomed back as adviser to the Democratic State Department. One day later Dean Acheson reversed this, and Dulles did come back. He remained for four years, working side-by- side with the Democratic Secretary of State. Stevenson's friends say a similar role for him alongside the present Republican Secretary o£ State would give him invaluable training to be the. next Secretary of • State—if and when. RIFLE SHELLS STOLEN PERU—About 15 boxes of .22 calibre rifle shells wera stolen from Sonsfrank's Grocery, 477 E; Third street, sometime Sunday. Entry was made through a window. LAFF-A-DAY Angelo Potri Learning Means Work, Not Fun One sure way to teach a child to distrust his teacher is to tell him that learning is fun. No child ifeels that concentrated attention on a lesson such as arithmetic, word recognition, and the like school duties, is fun. One experience tells him that it calls for effort, calls for the exclusion o£ all' other interests and the strict, direct attention to the task. This is not the healthy child's idea of fun; nor should it be. There is nothing wrong with work. It is the stimulus to growth of ability, physical and mental development. Far from being a curse at is a great blessing and man's Salvation from boredom, poverty and grief. This privilege of working then should not be denied children. They need to be helped to understand that they work for their own good when then they settle down to a school task; not for the pleasure of' their teachers. Once the natural inertia of a healthy school child is overcome, • and this any experienced teacher knows how to do, the pupil will accept his duty of applying himself to learning. That can be pleasant because in the er.d it is rewarding, not only in good marks but in a feeling of growth through accomplishment; a feeling of power to overcome difficulties. That feeling is a measure beyond fun; a far more worth-while one. A. child old enough, that is mature enough, in body and mind, to go to school is sufficiently advanced in the facts of life to learn that there.are such things as duties, as musts, in his life and that fun is the icing on his cake, not the whole of it. Growth is the result of effort. If a child is spoonfed at home and in school, conditioned to believe that life is one long easy stretch df smiles and pats and lollipops he does not develop personal power. Why should he? There is no use, as the Chinese say, of blowing your fire if the wind does it for you. I am not advocating a hard life for children, just asking that they have the privilege of growing through personal effort, of learning as early as possible that daily living has duties as well as privileges and to recognize both. This (for their own sakes! The time must come when they stand alone and if they have not been allowed, even pushed into self-help, they must be overwhelmed. . All children need fun. It should be recognized as an important element in their daily living-but it is unfair to them to tell them that learning is .fun. It isn't. It is their serious business, a stern duty 'and' a precious privilege. Tell them so! • » * Many tilings IB a child's development arc dependent on how a mother talks to a tyaby. There is a right way and a wrong way as Dr. Patrl points out in his leaflet P-21, "How To Talk to Baby." To obtain a copy, send 10 cents in coin to him, c-o this paper, P. "o. Box 99, Station G, New York 19, N. Y. (Eelesaed by The Bell Syndicate, Inc.) | QUOTES IN NEWS M'A'EBASffi, Japan-Judge Yuzo Kawachi, in sentencing S3C William S. Girard to three years' suspended sentence for fatally shooting metal scavenger Mrs. Naka Sakai on an Army firing range last January: "(The shooting) can only be regarded as excessive mischief, completely irrelevant to the performance of duty. . .an action simply carried out for the sole purpose oE satisfying the momentary caprice of the accused. .." MAEBASEI, Japan — Girard, after sentence was pronounced: "It was kind of tough, but I'm glad the judge gave me another chance." CAIRO—'Egyptian belly dancer Samia Gamal, in denying reports she planned to marry Italian singer Franco Franchi: "I have no more intention of marrying him than the man in the moon. Latin lovers may be okay for some people, but not for me." Public Forum "Open 'letter to author of Nov. 34 Open Letter to Humane Society". The local Humane Society belongs to you and I, as well as the entire community of Cass county. We are directly responsible for the very things of which you complain 1 . This organization depends on contributions for existance. •True, they operate a pound for the city of Logansport and Cass county.. This is not a profitable operation and in many instances does not make friends for the Society. We, as citizens have failed to ask for local legislation and ordinances to provide a government operated pound. Because of the absence of a pound our Humane Society has been asked to perform a thankless task of impounding and providing refuge for dogs, cats, birds, rabbits, chickens, ducks, etc. Officers of the Society act at the direction of local law enforcement agencies. It is rare that they recommend the arrest of offenders. These same people have risked their c'omforts to rescue a dog that someone threw from a bridge into tlie 'river. They drive miles into the countryside to pick up hungry animals that thoughtless people have abandoned. When Logansport staged a dog show, Humane Society workers came to the Armory and provided "clean-up" service for several hundred dogs, their owners .and the many visitors—all without charge. I am a dog owner, have had a clash with this organization, but tiiey acted in good faith and shall always have my respect. Don't be bitter from this one experience. Let's all send a cash contribution to The Humane Society to help provide eventual roomy quarters and more personnel. • Indiana law provides that a dog must' be kept confined or on a leash at all times, Let's cooperate.'
