THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE PROGRAM FOR IOGANIPOKT 1. An Adtqual* Civic C»nte? 2. An Adequnt* Stwag* Disposal 5y»t«m 3. Suffikenl Parking Facilili.i Controls on Driving Tractors The recent death of a 10-year-old Cass county boy in a farm tractor accident on a county road near his home, the ninth tractor fatality in Indiana in eight days, emphasized the need for legislation placing farm tractors under the same strict controls as other motor vehicles. While the last General Assembly tightened controls over the operators of other motor vehicles by requiring them to take an examination every four years, it made no effort to change the law exempting operators of farm tractors "being temporarily drawn, moved or propelled on a public highway of this state" from license requirements. The law requires operators of other motor vehicles to be at least sixteen years of age, with the provision that special school permits may be issued to those between the ages of fourteen and sixteen years. Strangely enough, however, operators of farm tractors and other farm machinery are not required to have an operator's license when they, travel on Indiana roads. This means that law enforcement officers would be powerless to prevent a 2-year-old child, a blind man, or a feeble minded person from driving a farm tractor on a state highway. Because they move much more slowly than the normal speed of present day traffic, farm tractors present a definite hazard on the highways even when they are operated by the most expert drivers. How much greater is that hazard when, there are no laws establishing requirements for operators of farm tractors on public roads! Those who oppose regulations governing drivers of farm tractors should seriously consider whether it is to their best interests to do so, since lives of both rural and urban people are endangered under the present system of no control. The next General Assembly should take steps to rectify this weakness in our traffic laws. IN THE PAST One Year Ago Mrs. Rosa Dunsizer, 66, wife of C. E.

Knowland now lias a chance to defeat Nixon for GOP nomination. WASHINGTON — Most significant fact about the President's battle of the budget is that he is being defeated by the two groups he rescued. Last year when 'he was pondering whether a heart attack and an 11- ietis o p e r a t ion should bar him from running two groups were loudest in demands that he make the sacrifice. They were: 1. Old guard Republicans who knew they couldn't win without Ike. 2. Big business, which has received more tax concessions, more helpful ruling from regulatory- commissions than in t any time in twenty years. Today, however, it's the U. S. Chamber of Commerce and the National Association of Manufacturers which have kept up a steady drumfire against the budget. They began their campaign early. Not satisfied with record profits, they decided that a further tax cut was more important than schools for their children or the defense of the nation. Bitterly disappointed at the Eisenhower budget, they launched an economy drive the like of which the country hasn't seen since Ihe 1930's. ' The disgruntled old guard latched on to this big business support. Ike could have stopped the economy landslide by throwing the full weight of his popularity into the breach when it firsl slarled. But he hung back, didn't want to •tangle witn Congress, ignored the advice of the palace guard that he must have a showdown. Meanwhile the old guard also urged Ike not to tangle with Congress. The Republican leaders who come to sec the President once a week are old guardcrs: Senators Kaowland of California, Bridges of New Hampshire, with Joe Martin of Massachusetts. Charley Halleck of Indiana, is a mid- dlc-of-the-roader. The advice they gave him against a vigorous showdown was to their advantage. Ho took the advice. The Old Guard Now Controls Today, as one result of taking their advice, complete control of the Republican party has gone back to the gold guard. Control of the party was something they had had for years, and they wanted it back again. They lost it in 1!)5|>. In 1952 they didn't lose it. n that election, modern Republicans had to organize citizens for Eisenhower in 1 order to circumvenl Ihc old guard. Bui in 1956, modern Republicans assumed control, and on Ihe night lie won, November (i, the reelected president proudly announced his inlcnlion to remake the Republican party in his own image. Today, six months after that astounding victory, the old guard is back in the saddle. Here is what is happening: 1. Ex-speaker Joe Martin has privately predicted "There won't be any modern Republicans running the ISlofi election. They won't be able to win in Ihc primaries." 2. Sen. Everett Dirkscn of Illinois, an old guarder, has quietly pledged enough senatorial voles lo make himself the Senate GOP leader when Bill Knowland goes back lo California. This is what Lyndon Johnson did among Ihe Democrats in I!)52. The Demo- crals didn'l particularly want Johnson, just as many Republicans don't want Dirkscn. However, when put on the spot singly, and asked for a vote, its difficult to turn a fellow-senator down. Dirksen is the njan. who launched t!ie hate Dcwey speech at Chicago convention in 1952. 3. Bill Knowland who wasn't given a chance lo win the GOP nomination in 1900, now is given a real chance. Vice President Nixon, a converted modern Republican, was considered a sure bet. Now its' about 50-50 between old guard Knowland and new guard Nixon. This is how radically politics has switched as a result of the battle of the budget. Capital News Capsules A-bombs for Korea?—Venerable STALL10 AGAIN <* <&^ ? ,*•*} V ^ /x u> e President Syngman Rhee has kicked up a terrific backstage battle in Washington. He's finally convinced the United States to forget about the Armistice and send new planes and weapons into South Korea ... On top of that he's arguing that his 20 South Korean Divisions should be given tactical atomic weapons and guided missiles similar to those being sent to the two American divisions in Korea , . . The Pentagon is flatly opposed. It [ears '.he unpredictable Rhoe might order his Army to smash into North Korea as soon as it geLs atomic bombs. Arab monarchs huddle—division in the Arab world is growing. King Faisal of Iraq expressed the view lo King Saud of Saudi Arabia, during their huddle in Baghdad, thai Egyptian Dictator Nasser must be blocked from taking over the whole Arab world. Faisal is convinced Nasser has become so dependent on Russia that he is little more than a Red puppeT. King Saud is determined, however, to avoid an open break with Nasser. He kept reminding his fellow monarch that the Arab world's number one enemy is still Israel. Ike Frowns On Pork Barrel—Jke told congressional leaders privately that if they really believe in economy, they will let him veto pet projects in their home states. He wants the right to kill items in the appropriations bill he doesn't like — instead of vetoing the whole bill. The item veto would give Ike the power lo turn down, local pork barrel projects that now pad the government's spending program—but which also get congressmen re-elected. Speaker Sam Rayburn replied bluntly that congress has no intention of abdicating its fiscal power. Trouble In Russia — U. S. diplomats report there's confusion among Soviet bureaucrats over the drastic reorganization of Russian industrial planning and management. Up to 100,000 Soviet officials are going to be moved lo the Hinterlands in a desperate effort to get more efficiency. Soviet bureaucrats are openly grumbling. The confusion is sure lo hurt industrial production for months lo come. Party Chief Khrushchev, however, is cracking the whip and pressing ahead. His prestige is at stake. His head would roll if the plan flops. Sour Taste In China — Mao Tze- Tung, the boss of Communist China, has madp two secret speeches denouncing bureaucratic bungling inside Red China. Alarmed at the mounting criticism of Communism throughout China, Mao with usual Communist logic, blames the unrest not on the defects of Com- LAFF-A-DAY Angelo Potri Put Family Documents in Secure Place Certificates have become highly important papers -and Iheir possession, Iheir care, their whereabouts when needed, are basic to comfortable and effective living for those to whom they belong. A marriage certificate is important not only to the two people concerned but also'to one or the other later on, and lo Iheir children for Ihc duration of Iheir lives. One never knows what crises are lo arise in a generation—a question of legitimacy, of the right to inherit, the right lo be the. person one claims lo be. Hold and preserve such a certificate from generation to generation. Then there are the children's birth certificates, their various vaccination, immunization papers. These can be highly valuable lo the children in days lo come. They need Iheir birth cerlificales lo establish their rights to attend school, lo vole, to cnler mililary service. They will need them lo oblain passporls, to establish their identity and their rights under various circumstances of their lives. AH such papers should be, must be, kept in a secure place, known to several members of the family so Ihey can be produced promptly when needed. To falsify such a record to gain a temporary advantage is a grave error and certain to cost more trouble and frustration in the end then the truth might have cost at Ihe start. Don'l, for example, ever enter a child in school by giving a false birlhdale so Ihat he may start earlier than he otherwise would. The day comes when the stolon year will demand its price and how the ' mistaken one will rue the day he was tempted to cheat. Certificates are records which the Courts accept and hold lo so guard Ihem in truth and safety. School records are worth preserving, too. They can be evidences of good character, achievement in one field or another, and they come in handy oflen when a young person is seeking help and advice in his career. A boy was asking for a scholarship. His school record was good bul not high enough to place him in the lop quadrilc of his class so his chances were not as good as ho might wish. A teacher had written across his last reporl Ihis r.ole: "This boy shows marked in- leresl in this subject and I believe thai he has great potentialities if given the lime he needs to develop them." That line did it. Suppose niunism but on subordinates who aren't doing their jobs. Air Traffic Jams — Commercial airlines have reported so many near collisions with military planes that CAA Administrator Jack Pyle has called on the air force to do something about it. Pyle wants civilian jurisdiction over all air traffic—including the mililary. But the air force claims it must have complete freedom of navigation lo guard the country agoinst air attack. Over 590 near collisions were reported last year and hundreds more went unrcported. his mother had not kept that re- porl? Health, school, achievements, carefully recorded in a book kept for thai purpose, will sureiy prove useful. Above all, hold family records in safety. They arc a trust. Did you know that rhythm will help a slow child move faster? Dr. . Patri's leaflet P-tl, "Slowness," will be of great help lo '.he mother who lias a child who is slow in school, work or play.

(Released by The Bell Syndicate, Inc.)James Hoffa Denies Guilt NEW YORK (UP) — Midwest Teamster Union boss .James R. Hof.'a, a Detroil henchman and a Now York w i r e I a p specialist ipleaded innocent in Federal Court Tuesday to an indictment charging them with conspiring to illegally tap the telephones in Hotfa's Detroit union headquarters. Hoffa, Owen Bernard Brennan, president of -Detroit Teamster Local 337, and Bernard Bales Spindci were released in $2,509 bail each. Federal Judge Lawrence Walsih set 'June 11 for the filing of motions and setting of a trial date. Hoffa is scheduled to go on Irial in Washington on June 17 on a charge of bribery involving his alleged attempt lo hire a staff member .of the Scnale Rackets Com- millee In leak him information on the committee's investigation of •the Teamsters Union. The three d e f e n d a n I s arc charged hero with having tapped telephones throughout Ifoffa's Detroit headquarters for Uic purpose of keeping track of union employes who might be called to appear be-fore Hie committee. Wickord Says Budget Must Be Judged by What Taxpayer Gets WARSAW, Incl. (UP)—Former Agriculture Secretary Claude R. Wickard said Tuesday night the size of a governmental budget must be "judged in relation to what the taxpayer gets for his Jiard-earned dollars." Wickard, in remarks prepared ,for delivery lo a Democratic meeting, said a budget cannot be judged on 'its size alone. "Any budget for a highway right-of-way department which was concerned more for ils own profit than service to the public would be loo high," said Wickard, a candidate for U. S, senator in 1956 and a possible candidate again in 1958. "Our national budget has been severely inflated without one single additional service, wilhoul one more gun or bomb for our de> fense," said Wickard, "without anything of value to the taxpayer, simply by the administralion's high-interest policy." Wickard said "the entire nation has been shocked".by the Indiana highway scandals "involving -a Iremendous waste of the taxpayers' money." He said the way to gel a dollar's worth of value for every tax dollar was to vole Democralic. 1-21 KING rCATOBCB INDICATE, l«, W01UI KIOHT1 • CHKYIOk "Daddy — you're hurting his f&elings."
