THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE MOORAM FOR IOOANSPORT 1. An Adtquat. Civic C*nl« J. An Adtquat. Stwag* Diipotal Syitw 3. Suffiit.nt Parkins FacilHiu Fixed Ideas Fail In a struggle involving life and death survival, two grave weaknesses are those of underestimating your enemy and of fixing your ideas in a hard mold. During recent years, these two weaknesses have cropped up in many parts of America. Some of the potentialities of the Soviet Union were underestimated. The schock of the sputniks has made this self-evident. Also, we suffer from too many fixed attitudes about Communism, about the difference between hard and soft Communism. Debate and discussion are frequently choked because of fixed ideas and, worse, fixed stereotypes and prejudices. There are men who haVe studied and fought Communism for two or three decades, yet do not know everything about Communism. But sometimes people with fixed minds who may never have read a basic book on the subject will shout and drown out a reflective voice. Will Communism die of its own •weight and inner contradictions?. Serious men have predicted this as a possibility, but it does not seem likely, surely not within any short time. Is Russia changing? Unquestionably, yes. But how? Change does not mean liberalization. Wish-fullfillment thinking on Communism is just as dangerous as rigid thinking is sterile. But in between, there are alternative views and many problems to which reasonably satisfactory answers have not been found. At times, we must speculate and develop hypotheses. Generally, the more we can see this, phenomenon clearly, the better we can oppose it. But we must keep on top of events, retain our flexibility of mind, and recognize that in Communism we have a complex, evil, changing, powerful movement against us, and not something which can be exhaustively described in a few stereotypes. To be against it, to fight it, you need more than your prejudices; you need your head and your heart and your will. Tolls for Downtown An allegedly sure-fire way to reduce city traffic congestion is proposed by Lyle C. Fitch, New York city's first deputy administrator. As he told the National Municipal League's annual convention, he would discourage the motorist from driving into congested areas by making him pay toll, with high parking charges after he crossed the barrier. The toll, once a common feature of cross-country travel, has had new life in recent years as a means of financing new turnpikes. Motorists accept this as an annoyance which will end when the turnpike is paid for. But take away the right of free driving in the downtown area? Even though the fee would clear the streets and thus speed up traffic, the administration which introduced the rule would probably be voted out of office at the first opaortun- i'ty. A British widow who won a tax-free contest prize of $574,658 has turned down a deluge of marriage proposals but -bought a $58.00 dress. Oh well, who would want to marry such an extravagant woman anyway? Russia has scored a linguistic as well as a scientific victory by making sputnik, an apparently permanent part of our language.

Drew Pearson'r MERRY-GO-ROUND TASTEN YOUR SEAT BELTS' Monday Evening, December 2, 1957. Drew Pearson Says: Eisenhower's slight stroke Is similar to first few strokes suffered by FDR; His chief worry is 'chance of recurrence; Eisenhower has been i'rank about erosion of health in the White House. WASHINGTON — Regradless o! whether President Eisenhower had a "stroke" as private specialists described it, or an "occlusion of a small branch of» tho cerebnil ves-| sel" as the White! House doctors de-1 scribed it, the! medical consensus! is that he suffer- \ ed in a minor way I what W o o d r owl Wilson suffered ir,,l a major way.I Ike's stroke or| "strokle:" is also! similar to the! smalt strokes suffered by the late Franklin Roosevelt. Woodrow Wilson, while campaigning: for 'the League of Nations, suffered a "massive stroke," was confined to bed and a wheel chair during the remainder of his term, while government business, including vital decisions pertaining to the piwC6i of the world, were left undecided. Private doctors specializing in vascular disease and studying the reports of the White House agree that the President's ailment does not have to be serious. But at his age, they also agree that chances of a recurrent stroke arc almost 100 to 1. Three developments can take place in the- body of a man suffering from vascular disease, which has been Eisenhower's problem for some time: 1. He can suffer an embolism, or clot, in part of the body, which becomes lodged someplace else. This rarely lodges in the brain and was not the case with the President. 2. He can suffer a hemorrhage, which again is rare in the brain except .in the case of people with high Wood pressure. Eisenhower at one tirne suffered from high 1 blood pressure, but in recent years his doctors, say he has overcome this. 3. There can be a blood clot in a blood vessel in. the brain. This is common and is what afflicted the President last week. The blood clot usually forms where the inner surface of a. vessel is rough. People sometimes awaken in the morning, with such a clot, or'are striken during the day. It usually comes on ulowly and is not dramatic. This is: the case with the President. FDR'S STROKES With careful treatment and rest, the spasms disappear, with recovery depending upon the size of the clot. Actually the clot never disappears. The Wood vessel is closed off by nature, and nature then compensates for the loss of this vessel by opening other channels. The significant factor in the President's case is his age. If he were younger, the clot would mean very little. But at the age of 67 all specialists agree that the chance of a recurrence is high. They point out that the late Franklin Rooseveit suffered several strokes during the latter part of his term in the White House, one in the summer of 1944 when he took a cruise to Alaska to recover from it; another when he was returning from Yalta. On each occasion Rooseelt's speech was slightly impaired, and Uie public noticed he had some difficulty with his enunciation during his address to the nation following Us return from Yalta. White House aides at that time explained thu> resulted from a new set of false teeth. Actually the President had suffered a slight stroke, and it was only four months later that a "massive" stroke brought about his dec.th at. Warm Springs on- April 12, 1945. Note: Medical experts say that the most worrisome factor in President Eisenhower's slight stroke is that it occurred despite the fact thiit he was receiving the best attention medical science could give him in the year 1957, and that he was on DicumaroJ, and Anticoagulant designed to prevent blood-clotting- which causes strokes. Ike's Frankness On Health President Eisenhower himself has been franker than anyone around him regarding the hazards of health in the Presidency, Here is the record of what he has said both in public and in private. 1. In May, 1955, Eisenhower told Sen. George Bender of Ohio that if he ran again he would be the only President to reach the age of 70 in the White House. And he warned about the erosion on the health of any President. 2. In September, 1955, as Republican state leaders gathered in Denver, the President told them •they could not pin their future on one man. 3. When- 'he came back from his heart attack, Eisenhower told newsmen at Key West, Fla., that it would be wrong for him to run again unless he had a good chance of serving out a second term, because "it is a very critical thing to change governments in this country at a time when it's unexpected." 4. At his first White House Press Conference after the heart attack he warned: "It would be idle to pretend that my health can be wholly restored to the excellent state in which the doctors believed it to be in mid-September . . .My future life must be carefully regulated to avoid excessive fatigue." Washington Pipeline The Navy has requested funds to • launch a Satellite from tile North Pole. This would follow approximately the same orbit as the Russian Sputniks. Our other Satellites will be launched from Cape Canaveral and will orbit around the equator, . .A dozen photographers, armed with movie and still cameras, are keeping constant watch on our very important missle testing center at Cape Canaveral. They are not Russian spies. They are American News photographers, assigned to sneak pictures of our missle tests . . . Secretary Dulles has flatly rejected an Egyptain request to unfreeze the $40 million of Egyptian assets held in this country. At the same time, Dulles has sent . $600,009 in American aid money 'to Egypt to help Egyptian Rural Development. ((Looks like Dul-les's left hEind doesn't know what the right 'hand is doing.) NOT SO HIGH NEW YORK (UP) — The highest temperature reported by the U.S. Weather B-jreau Sunday was 78 degrees at Los Angeles airport. The lowest recorded today was 12 below zero at Alamosa, Colo. HUBERT King FtiMrci Syndicate, Inc., World righlt testived Angelo Parri Uneduca table Can, Must- Be Taught The teachers of the secondary schools who ask that the "inedu- cataWe" be removed from their classes arid given working papers are in my opinion, backed up experience right in one particular and, mistaken in the other. What sort of work would be open to the boy or girl who was unable or unwilling to accept the instruction the schools offered and resented the disciplines required? None! Work of any kind demands intelligence, trained and disciplined intelligence and this is precisely what these unhappy young people do not have. And Shey should have it. They must have it not only for their own sates but aiso for the sake of the oommuntiy and the nation. ' These children cannot be tossed on the scrap heap. Labor cannot •take them. Think of the machinery/ the hours, the ; timed responses, the concentration which labor of any sort requires and then measure these children by that standard. They cannot be turned out of the secondary schools into the labor fields. Nor can they be turned out into the streets as they often are today in spite of Attendance officers and courts. Every such boy and girl should be provided for in schools suited to their needs. This is not impossible. Many of these children have good minds, clear brains and stout bodies, great assets which can be and should be developed. This cannot be done in the routined classrooms. Vocational schools are not the answer. They too, demand the trained intelligence and the disciplined character that all work requires. They cannot handle this mixed up, struggling child. But who can?. There 'are teachers especially fitted tor this work. If once we could persuade the education authorities to establish the right sort of school for these young • people they could be trained and disciplined so that they could become useful and happy people. They need work that is real so that they can respect it. They need and must huve understanding and skilled leadership. Many of' them need to be laken out of their poor homes and worse environment. Once more I a-m pleading for the School in Die Country, one close enough to the home community so there can be day pupils and residential ones. In the country so there can lie that space so healing to weary minds and bodies, so inspiring, to right thinking, so rich in things, worth-while things to do like tending animals, bui'.d- jng and all. that building implies- of work and care and 'achievement; gardening, housekeeping and the ot'aer life rewarding demands for usefulness. Children can't help growing oetter and stronger in such a school. The tirri'2 of pupils, teachers and supei"visors in secondary schools must not be sacrificed so uselessly ai> the presence of these children demands. Nor can these children b<> sacrificed too. They count. » * * Life is easier for both the par- Cive Thanksgiving Program at Meeting Of Deacon Grange A program on Thanksgiving was given by Mi's.
