THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE PROGRAM tOt IOGANSPORT 1. An Acfoqual* Civic Center 2. An Adequate Sewage Dispotal System 3. Suffilcent Parking Facilltiei A United Africa? A European federation already has begun to take shape. International control of coal, steel and atomic energy has been inaugurated. A long step has been taken toward a Western European customs union. This policy of international co-operation has now been imitated in an unexpected quarter, Africa. The new state of Ghana has invited seven other African states to confer on such matters as colonialism, the race question and interchange of economic, scientific and educational information. The seven, which have all accepted, are Egypt, Ethiopia, Liberia, Libya, Morocco, Tunisia anl the Sudan. South Africa, also invited, is considering the matter. Out of this modest beginning may come a closer connection. African countries generally distrust Europe, and suspect that American overtures have strings attached. The habit of getting together may lead to further co-operation on, say the letting down of customs barriers. Western Europe's present advance to a common economy arose out of as modest a beginning as the Ghana conference. And the African states are not separated by the traditions of hostility which have 'Until now kept Europe divide*}. We're Not Children Why is it that some men who occupy high places in government are reluctant to trust the people with the truth? This question is prompted again by the pointless delay in revealing that the "slight chill" suffered recently by President Eisenhower was in reality a mild stroke. Even after the nature of the President's ailment was disclosed, there was confusion as to its seriousness. Reporters were not permitted to interview the consulting physicians. They sought in vain to get clear, direct answers to simple questions that were the legitimate concern of the American people. The result was a welter of rumors and fears of the sort which the White House had tried to avert. There was no valid reason'for spoon- feeding the public with news of the President's attack a little at a time. When there is bad news, the people should promptly be given a straight, clear-cut account of it. Americans are the free citizens of a great nation. They should not be treated like children. Once in a while Khrushchev says something with which anyone can agree, such as "Competition in sputniks is preferable to competition in lethal weapons." The inability of Ezzard Charles to hold the heavyweight championship longer evidently cannot be blamed on lack of a durable ancestry. His great- grandmother died recently at: age 107. IN THE PAST One Year Ago Burglars took $24, one-half case of egg nog mixture, two cases of white wine and ten pints of red wine from the Dutch Mill tavern, 97 Burlington avenue. Lester M.

Ten Years Ago Kirk Martin, 618 Helm street, captured a rare cotton mink along Crooked creek, the second one he had caught in 20 years of trapping. Marilyn Bashore, 12, of 1339 Pleasant Hill street, was injured when struck by an automobile while she was skating in the street. R. H. Parker, 8ts, a retired Pennsylvania Railroad machinist, died at his home, 829 West Linden avenue. Mrs. Matilda Clawson, 92, dieid at Delphi after a long illness.

The Anti-Saloon league planned to begin an •11 out battle in about three weeks. Ann* Elizabeth Bell, 1516 High street, was married to Jesse Albert Butterworth. Drew Pearson's MERRY-GO-ROUND TTS ALWAYS SPRINGTIME IN PARIS" Thursday Evening, December 12, Drew Pearson Says: Lonely, determined Dulles leaves for NATO; It will take more than weapons to keep NATO together; Franco does not want American bases unless we have some defense against Russian ICBM. WASHINGTON. — An important allied ambassador dropped in to see John Foster Dulles shortly before he was tog take off for Paris [ The ambassador! represented ones of our best! friends in the! West, . and hejj wanted to see [ what plans the! Secretary of State! had for keeping| together the NA TO Alliance toS protect the f r e e[ world. He found Mr. Dulles very much alone. On his desk were sheets and sheets of yellow legal paper. It was the kind the Secretary of State had used to write briefs as a Wall Street lawyer with Sullivan and Cromwell. He was still writing on the same paper—drafting riot briefs but speeches and statements —very much alone. No advisers were with him. No experts helped warn of the intricacies of European diplomacy, He worked alone, his face stern, his hair gray, his brow furrowed, scribbling, scribbling on yellow sheets of paper. John Foster Dulles presents a pathetic picture today, sincere untiring, unrelenting, determined to live up to the reputation of his grandfather, John W. Foster, who occupied the same Cabinet chair under President Benjamin Harrison . . . Yet pathetic because he is the most unpopular American in Kurope. Despite that opprobrium, he is en route to Paris to keep the NATO Alliance together after receiving its biggest jolt in history — realization that the American •weapons on which it depended for defense lire inferior to Russian weapons. Yet Mr. Dulles is basing his plans for a successful NATO not on economic and political policies, whore the: United Stales is strong, but on weapons, where the United States is momentarily weak. Reactions to "Kaputnik" To get diplomatic reactions to the position of the United States following the Cape 'Canaveral fiasco and on the eve of the NATO Conference, this writer interviewed various key ambassadors. Here is what they said: A Latin American Ambassador: "Watch what happens in Guatemala on the wake of the Russian Sputnik, you cleaned out the Communists. But on the heels of your failure and Russian success, the Communists will be back soon again. Remember, Guatemala is very near the Panama Canal. "You don't realize what this failure does TO your friends. The President of Panama, a friend of yours, may be out of office next month." A West. European Ambassador: "For 10 years we have been telling our people not to worry, America has the strongest weapons in the world, she has the atomic bomb. What our people dread is getting in the middle of another •war, sitting between two giants who iare pounding each other and us, because we give bases to you. "You have to be in the middle of a bombing raid to realize our fear. You have to wake up in the night with the sirens shrieking. You have to bundle your children up and' carry them down to the •cellar. You have to see the awful glare of the bombs when they hit and wonder when the next will come your way. "Only then can you realize what the American failure at Cape Canaveral means — and what John Foster Dulles faces. You are sending the most disliked man in America to Europe to save NATO at a time whan we can no longer assure our people that American weapons are supreme and that they will be in our corner helping protect us." Another West European Ambassador: "The chief factor which has kept NATO together is Russia. Now the Russians are playing it smart. When your Sputnik went pfffft, the Russians didn't taunt you. They would have drawn Western Europe together behind you. But they were smart. They kept quiet." , A South European Ambassador: "Franco has served notice that Spain has to have better protection from the United States or else American bases will have to come out. I-!|; doesn't war.t Russian IR- BM's or ICBM's dropping over Spain with ro modern American weapons to stop them. "That means about a billion dollars worth of American bases built in Spain may be lost—unless you can prove to the world that you have caught up with Russia. "Franco has been mare blunt than some of the rest of us, but no European country waT.ts American weapons drawing Russian attacks unless those weapons are adequate." That is a cross-section of European diplomatic sentiment as John Foster Dulles, lonely and tired, flies to Europe with his scribbled notes on yellow foolscap, to try to save the western alliance. Washington Pipeline When New York Times' Arthur Krock learned Sen. Tom {Jennings of Missouri collapsed at a juvenile delinquency hearing, he got in, touch with the Times' Clifton Daniel, to get Daniel to prod his father-in-law about becoming Senator from Missouri. Daniel's father- in-law happens to be Harry S. Truman. Daniel didn't do any prodding . , . Harry Truman, and particularly Mrs. Trurr/an, are on the telephone almost every day to daughter Margaret to see how their grandson is progressing. They don't do any back-seat baby-tending, but they do display plenty of interest . . . One reason Adlai Stevenson bowed out of going to Paris for the NATO conference was the vetoing of a proposal to bring other Democrats into the State Department. Specifically, Stevenson proposed that Tom Finletter, former Secretary of the Air Force and an adviser to Eisenhower in England during the war, be brought to Washington. Dulles sidestepped the proposal '. . . Stevenson told Speaker Sam Rayburn he felt Dulles was using him as • window dressing, didn't really want Democrats to help •with a bipartisan foreign policy. WHEW!! CHMJWACK, B.C. (UP)-Police here are glad that one criminal here has become a number instead of a name. He is Mario Castelnveouotedesco, who was sentenced to 2% years in prison for breaking, entering and theft. ME, TOO! KNOXVIbLE, Tenn. ('UP) — Friends of James J. Housley gave him a "bridegroom shower" because he complained that the husband to be gets left out of all the pre-wec.ding festivities. LAFF-A-DAY Angelo Patri Child Must Be Dressed For Weather What kind of day it will be !s important to everybody and the weather report is listened to each morning with eager interest. The farmer's work and its results depend on it. Business is dependent • upon it and so is the family from father and mother to the baby. School children are not likely to think much about it unless a storm prevents their playing on the team or enjoying some other planned for event. The temperature seems to bother them little either way. They hope for a sunny day in swimming time, a cold one when it is ski and skating lime. A little rain does not bother them and the smaller ones love the puddles it leaves. Children have to be taught about the effects weather has on . them. Now that winter is here they must know that certain protection against the cold, the snow and ice and slush is essential to their health. We do not want them to fear weather but to accept it and meet its vagaries in good spirit and with good sense. It is all right to go out to play when the snow is on the ground. But feet must be protected from the wetness and chill. Warm and dry feet in winter become a matter of high importance. This means rubbers, or boots lhat are water resistant and which add warmth to the feet. Stockings that protect the knees and keep the feet warm are of first necessity. Human ears have no laps so in cold weather, especially windy weather, the children's ears should be protected by ear laps. The older children do not, as a usual thing, like the idea. Some of them even insist upon going without hats, much less caps with ear lapsi This is unwise at this time of year and parents should try to sea to it that it does not become steady practice. Perhaps if the ;iy!e-conscious young person were allowed to select the head protection he might be more will. ing to use it. But he should wear some sort of hat. Ears are precious to hearing and we are allowed just one set for a lifetime. . Rain, in moderation does not harm healthy children. They enjoy going out in it when they.are prepared for it. Umbrellas are not good equipment for children. They get in their way, and the way of other:;, and are soon lost. In school they are a nuisance. A raincoat, rainhat and rubbers are all that are needed to face a rainy •day's weather. Teach the children to enjoy weather as it comes, accept it because it is what they have, like it or rM; and it is always best to like it.

Russ Hope to Force Israel to OK UN Plan JERUSALEM, Israel (UP) — Reports reached Israel today from Paris that Russia has opened a diplomatic offensive to force Israel to accept the 1947 United Nations plan for the partition of Palestine. The reports, quoting NATO diplomatic circles, said Russia was pushing Egypt and Syria into threatening Israel with force unless it surrenders large areas to th'e two neighboring Arab states. Israel sources expressed fear the United States and Britain might advise Israel to surrender to these threats to prevent a war. The sources also feared Britain and America might join Russia in the United Nations in ordering Israel to accept such a solution to the Middle East dispute since the Arabs would accept it. Jerusalem observers said they believed current talks between United Stales officials anU Arab officials were designed to persuade the United Stales to sacrifice Israel to prevent the Arab states from falling into Russian hands.
