Sufficient Parking FadlHiu BLACK HOLE OF CALCUTTA FROM OTHER PAPERS— Inspiring Example • In an era characterized by a tendency on the part of individuals to look beyond themselves, oftentimes to government, for assistance in one form or another it is exhilarating to find people leaning in the other direction.- Thus a story in the sports section of The Tribune recently concerning the activities of the Maxinkuckee Fish and Game Club in neighboring Marshall County was inspiring. It tends "to bolster faith in the individual American's resourcefulness and willingness to work out personal and community problems if given a chance to exercise private initiative. It was a story about a group of conservation-minded people in and about Culver who held the view that a run-down and virtually abandoned state fish hatchery should be re-vitalized and that the job could be done best by private management. So motivated, the club members, instead of asking the state to pour more money into the going-to-seed hatchery, asked the state to let. them take it oyer on a lease basis. The club pays the state. What has happened since the club became manager of the hatchery is an illustration of what people can do for themselves when self-reliance is encouraged. Shortly the club will be placing an estimated 200,000 fish in Lake Maxinkuckee. While there is some difference of opinion as to the necessity of large- scale stocking of lakes with natural breeding spots, the club is convinced of the soundness of its program. But that is, not the basic point we are making here. What is of vital importance is the excellent example set by this group of conservationists who felt that it was improper to ask the state to do something which the people in the Culver community could do as well, or better. The work of 'such organizations is important, not only for their direct contributions in the area of conservation but for the inspirational influence. (South Bend Tribune) No Checkoff for Sheep The American'Farm Bureau Federation has taken a stand in opposition to a compulsory check-off of money from the sale of wool and lambs through the Department of Agriculture. This seems to be in keeping with the Farm Bureau's position regarding free choice, and is a sound attitude. Present law permits the Secretary of Agriculture to deduct money to promote the sale of wool and lambs in this country through the American Sheep Producers Council. In three years, the deductions have totaled more than eight million dollars while the price of wooi has gone down and Americans have eaten less lamb. There is the further fact that only 15 per cent of the sheep growers voted for the check-off in a referendum back in 1955. Checking off money to promote wool and lamb is no better than checking off union dues. If the sheep- men want to sell their product to the American public, they should do it of their own volition through a private organization rather than through the use of a government agency. The present check-off takes both money and choice away from the individual farmer. It would be in the best interest of all Hoosier sheep farmers to turn out during the month of September and vote against a continuation of this check-off. They'll get more for their lamb and wool, and they'll get back the freedom to decide how to spend their money on advertising. A "No" vote in this referendum should be attractive to many farmers, and as many as possible should vote.

DREW PEARSON Merry-Go-Round WASHINGTON.—Harry Truman has made some interesting criticism of the Khrushchev - Eisenhower exchange visits. While he thinks it's a good thing for Khrushchev to come to the USA, he doesn't think it's a good thing for President Eisenhower to go to the USSR. I don't like to be in disagreement with my old friend. Mr. Truman — though he has disagreed with me vigorously and perhaps justifiably before — but I think he's wrong in opposing Ike's trip to Russia. Here is the reason why: In dealing with an autocracy, the only safeguard you have as a checkrein on its rulers is friendship of its people. In the United States there is a Congress, the press, and the churches, which can and do checkrein the White House. War is not easy for a President to declare in the United States with these forces against him. But in a country like Russia, Khrushchev may be running things one day and somebody else the next. So, the only real safeguard is to convince the Russian people that the United States is a peace-loving, friendly nation. This is why I think Eisenhower's trip to Russia is more important than Khrushchev's trip to the United States. For Mr. Eisenhower, when he gets away from his big business golfing parfners, can be a very appealing, down-to- earth human being. He registers with crowds. People instinctively like him. And since the Russian people are sure to like him, his trip should be a very important step in cementing people-to-people friendship. Ike Changed His Policy Just 11 years ago, May 1948, I was sitting beside General Eisenhower at a luncheon in New York. He was then President of Columbia University, and seemed as much concerned about the state of the world as when he had been Chief of Staff in Washington. I suggested to him that the only way to make sure of peace with Russia was to break down the Iron Curtain — then completely rigid—and win over the Russian people. The friendship train, organized with the aid of the American Railroads, and to which millions of Americans spontaneously contributed, had just made a successful tour through Western Europe, and I suggested that if a similar train were sent towards Moscow, the Kremlin might have trouble stopping it at the edge of the Iron Curtain. General Eisenhower wasn't enthusiastic. However, we all change, and as President he has adopted the idea of people-to-people friendship, Eisenhower, however, has not changed as much as the Kremlin. In three short years, the Iron Curtain has virtually disappeared. The strict barrier erected by Stalin to keep the Russian people from knowing outsiders and the benefits of Western civilization, has evaporated in a steady stream of visits between scientists, businessmen, sports teams, orchestras, cultural groups. Governors, and now the leaders of the two nations. When you compare this with the blunt, brutal aloofness of Stalin's day, of when you recall the screams of protest that went up from behind the Iron Curtain when we floated friendship-freedom balloons across the Iron Curtain to emphasize that the Kremlin was afraid to let the people on its side get acquainted with people o'n the Western side —in view of all this, the change is nothing less than a political miracle. Capitalism In Moscow Part of this people-to-people exchange-has been arranged by the State Department direct with Moscow. Part, however, has come about purely through the capitalist system which the Communists abhor—at least in theory When Sol Hurok and Robert bowling brought the Bolshoi Ballet, the Moiseyev dancers, Sara Douluk- haniva, the Soviet soprano, or the Russian Festival to the U.S.A., the engagements were booked on a pure profit-taking capitalistic basis. There are now 1,407 life insurance companies in the United States, an increase of -81 in the past 12 months. LAFF-A-DAY Fiftv Years Ago Donald Corriden. son of Mr. and Mrs. Michael Corriden, suffered burns on his legs tot'ay when carbolic acid was splashed on them. Advice for First Day Of School Stanley, aged six, almost, was delighted to think he was big enough to go to school so his mother thought he would be no problem at all. She took him to the classroom where most of the beginners were already seated, introduced him to the pleasant gray-haired teacher and prepared to leave. "Wow-owow," howled Stanley, clutching her dress. "I wanna go home, I wanna go home." Mother soothed him, pointed out how happy the other children were and what a nice time he would have but no, "I wanna go home--" "If you will just leave him here and silp out and go home, he will soon settle down. The other children will help him," said the teacher. But Stanley clung and his mother said, "I'll stay with him for a while." "Better not." said the teacher. "You will only prolong the trouble." The teacher was right but mother, distressed, could not believe that her weeping frightened child would change his attitude and stayed in the room, sitting beside him on a chair built for a • six year old child. It did no good. The moment she made a- movement to leave he clutched her again and screamed loudly, and each time his protests were more strenuous until his mother gave in and took him home. "Don't do that," said the teacher. "He ' will be worse tomorrow. Let him stay and he will get over this once you actually go." But mother could not believe that and . went her way with the now beam' ing Stanley. This went on for a week and finally mother was w r eary and said, "I think he is not ready for school yet. We will wait a term." "But he is ready now," said the teacher, "and if he does not start now he loses months of schooling and he will find it much harder to learn to read if his learning time passes without his making use of it." But Stanley went home. Each term there is always one such child. Fear overtakes him when he faces the reality of his cherished dream, his first day in school among the big children. The only thing to do is to leave him with the teacher and the other children and go home. We found that after the first few minutes he, with the help of a sympathetic, assured child, settled down and went to work. If he was taken home the first day we rarely managed to hold him afterward and he lost the term. It is well to acquaint a new scholar with the appearance of the school, the classrooms, playground and equipment the term before he enters. Familiarity destroys fear. * * * Angelo Patri offers readers leaflets on m a variety of subjects «on- ceming child training. If you Reviews Of TV Shows Friday Evening, September H, 1S59 By FRED DANZIG NEW YORK (UPI) - The new NBC-TV mystery series, Staccato, arrived Thursday night and promptly hit a clinker — fortissimo. For one thing, there is a disturbing degree of the Peter Gunn- Richard Diamond influence here and while imitation may be equat- with flattery, it doesn't indicate quality, necessarily. Johnny Staccato, portrayed by John Cassvetes, is one of the wonders of this age: A. part-time jazz pianist in a Greenwich Village joint who can walk off the bandstand to become a part-time private eye. I assume Staccato is given a sideline so that he can be a boy in a trade where leggy, legato blondes and violence are obligalff for TV purposes. (Musicians, after all, never lead adven- turuous lives.) Thursday night, Staccato was called away from a jam session to help a singer, male, out of trouble. The singer was paying blackmail to keep a scandal magazine from revealing his past. Unfortunately, the singer's past indiscretion was not given to the audience. Staccato met the singer in a steam room and the singer was thereupon stabbed in the> back by the magazine publisher's strongarm guy. Is it rude at this point to wonder about the role of the lawyer and police department in such cases? Anyhow, Staccato presses forward, rifles the magazine files, encounters the publisher and the knifer outside the office. He hops into a truck and crushes the knif- er against a wall. Then he hops out of the truck and kills the publisher in a showdown gunfight. The singer recovers and Staccato has solved the problem. I hope all private eyes — especially the full-time, non-musicians among them — don't operate the way Staccato does. He's such a bungler that I wouldn't even trust his piano playing. WALTER WINCHELL Broadway and Elsewhere The Channel Swim: Frank Sinatra has announced that Elvis Presley will be the special guest star on Sinatra's' ABC-TV special scheduled for "early May, i960." Theme of the show: "Sinatra's welcome home TV party for Elvis." Of course, Frankie and Our Leader will blend voices in some duets. The upcoming British general elections have disrupted plans by CBS-TV's Person-To-Person to present taped interviews with Brigitte Bardot. Sophia Loren, Gina LoIJobrigida and Yul Brynner. Britain's Granada network, which was to have taped the segments in Paris and Rome, advised P-To-P that all its taping equipment is being "preempted" for campaign coverage. As a result, P-To-P. with Charles Collingwood as host, will continue visiting stateside hearthsides until Granada, or CBS-TV, comes to the rescue. The program's fall debut has been postponed from Friday, Oct. 2 to Oct. 16 as a result of the snafu. The 90 - minute special on CBS-TV set for Thursday, Oct. 22 will fetisre Greer Garson as hostess and a cast that includes Martha Raye, Peter Lind Hayes and Mary Healy, Mike Nichols and Elaine May, Walter Slezak and John Bubbles. Christopher Plummer will be co-starred again with Julie Harris in the. Hall of Fame production of Ibesn's, "A Doll's House," on NBC-TV Sunday, Nov. 15. The Bell Telephone Hour on NBC-TV Friday, Nov. 20 will be an all-Gershwin show, possibly headed by Ella Fitzgerald. QUAKE STIRS CLOCK HYATTVTLLE, Wyo.
