THE-PHAKOS-TKIBUNE PROGRAM (OR lOOANSPORT 1. An Adtquot* Civic C«it«r 1. An Adequate Sewage Diipoul iytttn ' 3. Suffitcent Paiklng Facilities Wednesday Evening, November 20, 1937. Three Principal Aims There are three principal aims which must supersede all others in United States foreign policy. These are freedom, security, peace. When we can be reasonably-certain that these are guaranteed,then whether Russia produces more milk than we or who is ahead in any particular science will not matter. Khrushchev's challenge to competition in an era of co-existence is not actually a call for a co-operative effort to bring freedom, security and peace to men and to establish the basis for a- cooperative or combined effort which will end the miseries of people in the backward areas of the world..It is a challenge to compete in a peaceful effort which will end in the destruction of one of the competitors by means other than war. It is not a proposal for the two most powerful nations to concentrate on a peaceful effort to lift the load of mankind. Khrushchev is saying that his system is better than America's and will win out in the end. He is asserting that differences are irreconcilable. He is proposing to bury us by inches or degrees rather than all at once. He is proposing a competition which will keep the people of other nations in turmoils of indecision as to which of the giant powers' they should pick. And we know that he does not mean a competition which is even fair. He proved that in Hungary. Our efforts could be directed towards improving the life of mankind, but as long as Russia is ruled by men who threaten free people, we must stand firm jn promoting freedom, assuring our security, and still striving for peace which is real, and not one of surrender to the Kremlin. Farm Policy Shift There is a rising tide of indications that a major revision of the nation's farm policies will be sought when Congress reconvenes. The latest move toward this end is the national Farmers Union proposal for abandoning direct government price supports and establishing a system of commodity marketing agree- 'ments and producers' cooperatives. There is no assurance that Congress •will adopt such a program. However, it is interesting to note that Glenn Talbott, - Farmers Union president, claims support from a large number of general farm. .'organizations and commodity groups. If that support is firm next Js.nuary, the legislators will have to give the proposal very serious considerations. The Farmers Union plan reflects two things. The first is a general feeling that basic farm problems have not been solved by the price supports and produc- 1 tion controls which Congress has been experimenting with for more than 20 • years. The second thing reflected by the ' farmers Union proposal is a growing . conviction, among farmers, that they :" ought to have more control over the sup; ply and price of their products in the market. Congressional hearings on farm policy will begin in December. There is reason to believe that a major, perhaps a fundamental, revision is in the wind. IN THE PAST One Year Ago Vandals turned over 18 tombstones in local cemeteries • during the .night. Steven Smith, 7, of 7U9 Twenty-second street, was injured when his bicycle -was struck by a car.

Drew Pearson's MERRY-GO-ROUND SHOWER OF STARS Drew Pearson says: Justice Frankfurter, uninvited to White House, imitates a White House dinner; Frankfurter, who came here from Vienna 63 years ago, Is 75 years old; big brothers combat increased juvenile crime. WASHINGTON —.Justice Felix Krankfurter, born in. Vienna and brought to the United States 63 years ago, was three quarters of a century old.last week. In those years, h«, an immigrant boy, had climbed to the highest court in the land. •His fellow Supreme Court justices, some of whom don't always 1 enthuse over Ms voluble expostulations from the bench, gave Felix a dinner in honor* of his 75lh birth-r day. It was con. I siderablj' different! from another din-f ner which Frank-] furter h i m se 1 i gave on the samel night Queen Eliza-l befch was enter-1 tained by Eisen-f hower in state a'| the White House. Frankfurter, f great admirer and' defender of the British, was not invited, the White House guests included business executives, and other big campaign contributors. But Justice Frankfurter, though not invited to the White House, was not to be outdone. He sent out formal dinner invitations to four close friends, including Donald Hiss, brother of Alger Hiss, Ominously, the irwitatkms read: "White lie mandatory." Obediently, guests arrived in white ties and formal tails. Greeting them, Justice Frankfurter said: "I see you are in full splendor, but I can cut one notch higher than you on this thing." He pointed to his midnight blue tail coat a-nd to the red lapels that liad been specially attached for the occasion. "I'm quite a whiz when I go in for pomp and circumstance," joked the Supreme Court justice. The guesis went in for dinner. The first course was luxurious cream of almond soup. One of the ladies Uttered. Cream of almond soup was also being served to Queen Elizabeth at the White. House. Second course was filet of sole. This time two ladies tittered. Third course was roast duckling — exactly what the Queen o£ England was eating at the White House. The fourth course turned out to be nesselnode pudding, again duplicating the White House menu. Frankfurter confessed that he was an avid reader of the women's pages, had clipped the While House menu, gone personally to the Library of Congress to consult a high-brow British cookbook for one of the recipes. "We can enjoy their food,_ but •they can't have our conversation," he said. "Just think what wonderful talk the other people are missing." Big Brothers of America It's no secret that juvenile crime has shot up in the United States for eight consecutive years. Since 1948 there's been a 70 per cent increase in the number of appearances before juvenile courts, despite the fact that the population increase of juveniles between 10 and 17 was only 16 per cent. Last year was the worst. Police arrests of juveniles went up 17 per cent and court appearances shot up 20 per cent. The District of Columbia, capital of the United States and supposed to be a model city, is no model when it comes to juvenile crime. I':s court cases have doubled in the past _six years, which is above the national average. Washington even let its Big Brothers organization lapse last year for lack of funds, and for this and other reasons there were 1,645 juvenile delinquency cases filed last year — a record. Today the Disl trict of Columbia is reviving Big (Brothers, an organization operating in many other cities, to give youngsters guidance when they are on the verge of crime or just need friendly advice. The basic problem leading to delinquency is insecurity — a youngster's feeling that he's not wanted by his family or the community. Every human being has a fundamental desire to belong. When there is desertion by a parent, or separation or divorce, the youngster may be headed for trouble. However, kids tend to pattern themselves after their elders.' If •he has a friendly .adviser, such as a big brother assigned to spend •weekends with him by the. Big Brother organization, he tends to follow the example of that big brother "Big' Brothers of America have ibeen doing a wonderful job in various cities, helping boys who are fatherless, who come from broken •homes, who may be socially, maladjusted, or may be paroled to a big brother by the courts. rather than sending him to a reformatory. "No man ever stands so straight •as when he stoops to help a boy," . say the big brothers. According to J. Edgar Hoover, they are doing a great: job. At the Supreme Court dinner for. Justice Frankfurter, his fellow Justice, William J. Brennan,- proposed a toast during which he told a story of a man in Purgatory who wanted to work his way to heaven. St. Peter gave him some difficult tasks to. do-, first removing a mountain with a shovel. It took him 2,000 years, after whvoh he came back for more. "There's a lake over near town," said St. Peter. "You go and empty that lake with a teaspoon." This took 5,000 years, after which he came back for more. "This time," said 1 St. Peter, "You go out and find another man like Felix Frankfurter." . "He's been gone 30,000 years,"' concluded Justice Brennan, "and he hasn't come back yet." Queen, Philip Observe 10th Anniversary LONDON (DIP)— Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip observed their 10th wedding anniversary today and enjoyed the luxury of' staying home for -a change. The royal couple, .usually on a hectic whirl of social, civic or diplomatic 1 functions, reserved today just tar themselves and,possibly the family and a few friends. There was no pre-arranged reception, no official salutes or-flag- flying. Just a day at home in Buckingham Palace. Palace sources said Princess Margaret and the Queen Mother might join the royal couple and Princess Anne for -a family dinner party. r Prince Charles, away at Cheam • Boarding School, was riot brought home for the occasion. LAFF-A-DAY Angelo Patri Adventure Is a Part Of Growth Mothers are'often frightened by the adventures of their growing children. They climb to high places, they love to walk high up, narrow tracks, such as the ridgepole on the shed.. They jump into the water before they know how to swim, physically and mentally. It is part of their effort to grow up. It is the business of childhood to develop latent power hidden within them. "How can I know if I CAN?" said a small boy when his mother warned him about rid-" ing his bike on an abandoned car rail. How can he indeed if h does not venture? Not that he need to ]earn to', ride a narrow rail so much as he needs to feel he could if he had to. AM life is a challenge to children, especially the bright and active .ones. Their mothers have to keep watch on them as far as possible to keep them whole in body and in peace 1 of mind for this restless, adventurous spirit is t a. powerful stimulant to action. That is why we need playgrounds that offer hard exercise for the big muscle masses that nag to be used. Climbing, jumping, racing, swimming, digging, all the exciting big actions must be satisfied if the youngsters are to develop in sound health and to the limit of their potentialities. A difficult situation- for mothers. Too many homes are without the opportunity for useful or pleasant 'activity for the children. New home developments are especially poor in. such provisions. The houses are too small for a big play- space or room, so the children have to seek for such opportunities and it is in this search that they take chances, get into the wrong groups, fall into wrong habits. Every neighborhood school should have an open, supervised play yard open all day long and all year round. . Society has a share in the healthy growth o£ its children so it is society at large that must see that opportunity for exercise in comparative safety is provided for them. Of course the question of money, of consequent taxes,' looms largely in p this situation. But what eise can be done? Home cannot do more. The. community as a whole must take' over. When they refuse to see this need, the problem of delinquency becomes acute. Then we have social workers, clergy, physicians, alerted after /the police have been called into action. ' To get any preventive action on this seems about as difficult as climbing Everest. Only when determined citizens demand provision for the children will anything be done. Until they do the children will take chances, dangerous ones. Still Urges U.S.Trials for Servicemen INDIANAPOLIS ('TIP)—National Commander John S. Gleason Jr. of the American .Legion said today that William S. Girard's sentence suspension will nut slow the legion in its campaign against trial of U.S. srvicemen in foreign courts. "The action ... does not in any way alter the basic position of the .. . Isgion," Gleason said in a prepared statement. "Girard's guilt or innocence or, if guilty, his punishment, never has been an issue. "The issue is the protection of military personnel from international policies... We will ask the President to take such steps as are necessary to modify Die present Status of Forces agreements to provide ... protection for all U.S. military personnel serving on foreign soil." Gleason said that Past National Commander Alvin Owsley, who was the organization's official observer at the Girard trial, reported the Japanese court which convicted Girard was "competent and fair." QUOTES FROM NEWS "By UNITED PRESS WASHINGTON—William J. Donohoe, Army security review officer, on a very belated report that Gen. George Custer was in love with a camp follower back in 1876: "They lost their heads at Little Bighorn, but it certainly wasn't over a woman." •MOSCOW — Soviet Premier Nikolai Buiganin in announcing i.hat the Soviet -Union will Help fortify the Egyptian national economy: "Our contribution to the building up of the Egyptian national economy is unselfish and bases on mutual respect for independence and sovereignty."

Plan to Restore Kankakee Swamp For Waterfowl KNOX OJP)—The Kankakee Game Preserve was on its way back today to its original form as a swampland attractive to migratory waterfowl. The 2,300-acre state-owned preserve between the Kankakee and Yellow Rivers once was a desolate swamp. But the Kankakee was dredged and the. swamp drained, and game and birds which usad it as a haven disappeared. Under a $24,000 program, the Indiana Department of Conservation began Tuesday to restore the land to a swamp for a wildlife habitat by installing pumps to pour water from the two streams back into the wasteland at the rate of 32,000 gallons a minute. The most backward of all animals, the crayfish has its teeth in its stomach and its liver in its head.
