EDITORIAL PAGE PAGE 14. THURSDAY, MARCH 31, 1966. Dr. V. W. Dippel : IT IS WITH sadness that we note the passing 'in his 93rd year of Dr. V. VV. Dippell, emeritus professor of German at Franklin and Marshall College. Dr. Dippell was one fully aware of his responsibilities, not only as a member of the college faculty, but as a member of the community in which he lived. In the 56 years he was a resident of Lancaster, he gave liberally of his talents to promotion of the cultural, political and civic life in his home city. Respected and admired for his professional ability, he was loved and honored by those in the non-academic world who shared in his varied activities. A man of high personal integrity, he was withal a person of understanding and humor. Lancaster gained by having him in its midst. Here and there Judging from the stories out of Washington these days the "private eye" business is really booming. It's gotten so they're hiring detectives to shadow fellow gumshoe artists. It's last call today for elderly persons to sign up for the supplemental medicare program that helps to pay doctor bills. The local Social Security office will be open to midnight for the late comers. The Don Drysdale-Sandy Koufax hold-out, one of the best publicized on record, is over they've signed on the dotted line and are back in the Dodger camp. It'll cost Dodger owner Walter O'Malley a pile of dough but it's a safe bet the publicity will net the Dodgers a lot more than it cost him. TODAY'S TALK A choice possession (From the collection of the late George Matthew Adams) MOST OF US become impatient time and again, but when we do we lose to a greater or less degree much of the God-given power that is bequeathed to us all. Patience should be one of our choicest possessions. There is an old saying that states all things come to him who waits, but someone has improved upon the statement by saying that all things come to him who hustles as he waits! Study the life of any great person and you will read the story of one who was never too much in a hurry, but who kept improving himself as he worked, dreamed and planned. Patience is a wonderful virtue. John Dryden said to possess our souls with it. Our modern life is one of impatience and all speed ahead. Life's journey was meant to be pieasant, and even joyous. Nothing is eaincd by rushing to get something finished before its plans are rightly set. People of power have learned to be patient and to abide their time. Impatience is destructive. It tears to the heart of a person. It roughs its way through this entire bodily structure, leaving bad news all the way. There is nothing so sensitive as the human body. Patience gives it health and stimulative ideas and thoughts. Take time. Be patient, even with those who are not in sympathy with you. It is sad to see a person impatient with a child. By being patient with it an entire life may be influenced. Patience has a multitude of meanings and inspiring qualities gentleness, consideration for the feelings of others, sympathy, and love. You have to love people to have patience with them. Like a mother does. Protected 19M, by Washington Star Syndicate, Inc. : if, Ad arm Power of the ballot : MANY AMERICANS, in the last 20 years or so, ' have had to undergo considerable readjustment in their standards of ethics and their concepts of equity. They have discovered not only that human "'rights transcend property rights, but that those . same human rights are much more numerous than was once realized. Racial integration, freedom of '- speech, equality of justice and equal opportunity in : the economic field are now more widely recognized ' than in the days when some of our older citizens , were growing up. The process of extending such rights to minor- : ities has aroused some of the less charitable to protest that we are letting the "minority tail wag . the majority dog." There is, it seems to us, little prospect of such a disaster overtaking us. We have seen it happen in the totalitarian states. Hitler and Stalin and certain others pursued a policy of establishing minorities in power. They were able to enslave and persecute the majority. But the reason they were able to do so was their success in overthrowing all semblance of democracy by abolishing free elections. The universal ballot, recently strengthened by the one-man, one-vote dictum of the Supreme Court, provides our best safeguard against tyranny by the few over the many. In the light of that truth it is regrettable that so small a percentage of the total eligible vote determines the outcome of so many of our elections. The microstates, FROM TIME to time a foreign affairs analyst : plays new variations on the old theme that admitting a host of tiny "microstates" to the United Nations is foolish and unjustifiable. There is much to support this view. Some of the newly created and newly independent nations get a U.N. vote without being viable on their own. One should be wary, however, of any sweeping move to thwart the formation of new countries or to bar them from the U.N. The Wilsonian principle that "every people has a right to choose the sovereignty under which they shall live" is still fundamentally valid. It may be that the United Nations ought to apply somewhat higher standards to recognition and admission of new states. But the danger of standards so rigid that they deny any substantial number the right of self-determination must be kept in mind. If ' '?:iy7 DREW PEARSON Offbeat on the merry-go-round "Last one in's a rotten egg!' LETTERS to the editor Patriotism feared lost Editor, Intelligencer Journal: In support of Dr. Berberian Editor, Intelligencer Journal: In April 1917, the U. S. was forced to declare war with the Imperial German government. At that time there was a wave of patriotism that swept the country. Men in all walks of life answered the call to the colors. An Army of only 75 thousand plus 250 thousand National Guards were trained in only one year's time. Total men un der arms (Army and Navy) 4,500,000. Our first offensive, in March 1918, was a victory at Cantigney and just nine months later, Nov. 11, 1918 Germany was forced to surrender. Those men fought to preserve the heritage of their forefathers. to keep liberty and freedom for all of us. That liberty was also preserved in the Second World War and the Korean War. Today we are fighting in Viet Nam to preserve that freedom. We have always come through with the survival of the fittest but it seems as if today that former patriotism is lost. I cannot comprehend why although in the mi- nority there are so many who have subversive feelings. It is not among the rank and file of the country but among the most educated people, doctors, scien tists, professors, students and the ministry. Why do they want to be regimented by Communist rulers? The United States has never fought for world power or possessions, just for freedom and liberty. Starting late in Decem ber, 1965, President Johnson halted the bombings, sent peace emissaries around the world but the North Vietnamese ignored him. Their answer was new offensives against us so it looks as though they have been the aggressors. America has been the cham pion of freedom, not only for herself, but for the world. This ideal is derived from the faith that prevails in the hearts of the people. Suspicion and doubt are not constructive. Doubters did not set America free or brine freedom and courage to the American soul. The faith that brought our freedom to America must be kept alive at all costs. This faith will be preserved only when American citizens practice it in everyday living and in duties in the home, the school, the church, the community and the nation. The Communist governments are based against the truth. They will not let their peoples be free to express themselves nor are they allowed the freedom to speak as they inwardly feel. Millions of people who desire the freedom we enjoy are kept in mental and physical slavery. When enough men know the ; truth they will also know the' blessings and beauty of liberty.) In this faith let us live, and let ! us die if need be. for the glory of God and the welfare of human- ity. : I think the persecution of Dr. Berberian has gone just about far enough. I have been a patient of the doctor's for over ten years and never have I been left alone with him without the presence of his nurse. Just how far will this go? Is someone really out to ruin him? I hope not, as there are more people in the city who feel as I do Urges caution with mowers Editor, Intelligedner Journal The time is now approaching that folks will be mowing then-grass with rotary mowers and as the summer goes by you will read of people getting their toes cut or hands mangled. Since know of about four people personally who have had mishaps. I just want to inject in this letter Mrs. T. J.

Every time I went to his office, day or nignt, tnere was a nurse there. I went to him two years ago, and he did wonders for me. I have a cracked spine. Overnight he had me in traction in the hospital. I can walk, and I sure am thankful for the care he gave me. I know he is a good doctor, and I would like the people of this county to know also. Mrs. Charles H. Sload 3 N. Conestoga Dr. mow grass when it is wet or you may slip under blades. Be extra careful on banks and gullies Above all don t clean your mower without removing wire from the spark plug. Also along these same lines I would like to see a law forbidding youngsters to operate these mowers as they could be crippled for life. Also a law compelling all manufacturers of rotary mowers to list all potential dangers on a card to each mower. Ernest Detwiler 1019 Center Ave. Controversial play rapped WASHINGTON It wasn't supposed to leak out of the closed-door Senate Commerce Committee, but last week Sen. Norris Cotton, R-N.H., protested a report in this column that Republicans on the committee were ail going to vote against the truth-in-packaging bill. The column also reported that Sen. Ross Bass of Tennessee, who replaced cosumer-protector Estes Kefauver in the Senate, was on the fence, and leaning against the bill "How does Pearson know in advance how I'm going to vote?" grumbled Sen. Cotton. "What t h e hell, it's true, isn't it?" retorted Bass. "What are you squawking about?" Sen. Maurine Neubereer. D- Pearson Ore., complained about the labels on packages of frozen peas which claimed that the package contained four servings. Servings can be either large or small, depending on the appetite of the person who eats them. Sen. Neuberger argued She felt that this kind of labeling should either be cut out or should state "approximately four servings. Chairman Warren Magnuson, D-Wash., postponed further discussions for a week to give more time to iron out disagreements. STUART HUGHES, the Har vard professor whom the FBI and passport chief Frances Knight wanted shadowed in Eu rope because of his opposition to the Viet Nam war, happens to be the grandson of a former Sec retary of State Charles Evans Hughes. The elder Hughes gave the State Department one of its more liberal administrations, even though he served under Warren G. Harding. Later he became Chief Justice of the United States, having been governor of New York and having almost defeated Woodrow Wil son for President in 1916. His grandson ran for the Sen ate in Massachusetts against Teddy Kennedy. Nevertheless, the State Department gave orders to have him watched while overseas. THREE AMERICANS from diverse and different walks of life are being honored by their fellow citizens this week. They are: BOB HOPE who is being given a big dinner in Washington in tribute to his dedicated service to GIs by touring isolated military areas every Christmas. Sen. Stuart Sym ington, D.-Mo., when head of the Air Force in 1950, got Bob Hope launched on this idea, and he has patriotically continued it ever since. DAVID G. BAIRD the Wall Street banker who has given away millions to hospitals, boys towns, the American Friends Service Committee, under privileged groups both in the Appalachians and in the slums of the big cities. Baird's founda tions came in for rigorous scrutiny by Rep. Wright Patman, D-Tex uncorruptible, indefati gable prober of Wall Street. Recently Patman gave Baird a clean bill of health. A group of distinguished New Yorkers, headed by Supreme Court Jus tice George J. Beldock, is giving Baird a Brotherhood citation. CHESTER BOWLES U.S. Ambassador to India, former governor of Connecticut, Price Administrator during World War II, and a former member of Congress. It isn't often that dipl omats want to go back to serve a second term in countries where they've served before. But Bowles, who was tremendously popular in India ten years ago, is now serving his second stint as ambassador. He's in Washington this week advising the White House on our opportunities in the world's second largest country. OLD FRIENDS of Judge Thurman Arnold, former Justice Department trustbuster, raised their eyebrows when he turned up at the White House birthday party for Chief Justice Warren with a pretty young lady whom he introduced as Mrs. Thurman Arnold. The judge is seventy-four. The young lady he introduced as his wife was about thirty. Other guests at the party, knowing the judge's real wife, were mystified. Next day some of them attended a reception at the Thurman Arnold home and were introduced to Mrs. Thurman Arnold Jr., who an hour before had married the Arnolds' eldest son and who the day before had accompanied the judge to the White House. Mrs. Thurman Arnold Sr., had asked the White House if her future daughter-in-law could come to the reception In her place, was told, "No, invitations to the White House are a command. They are not transferable." "The White House is not going to command me," said Mrs. Thurman Arnold Sr., and sent her future daughter-in-law to the: White House anyway. .. , THE ONLY LADY who discourages telephone calls from LBJ was elected to Congress, from Texas last week. She is Mrs. Albert Thomas of Houston, who used to tell the President not to call her husband at night. He had to sleep. Her husband was able to move a good part of the Cape Canaveral space oper ation to his home town at some cost to the taxpayers but great economic advantage to Houston ... If Gov. John , Chafee, Republican of Rhode Is land, had known how much Sen. Claiborne Pell, Democrat of Rhode Island, worried over the possibility that Chafee would run against him, Chafee would have run . . . Sen. Birch Bavh of Indiana tells Sen.

It's a goodwill gesture sands across the sea. WASHINGTON CLOSE-UP Editor, Intelligencer Journal: How can the First Presbyterian Church in Lancaster sponsor a play "For Heaven's Sake," that made a fool of a person who we believe in? It is my duty to speak up and give you some quotations of that part "Some Career" from the play "For Heaven s Sake : "He was a flop at thirty-three! His whole career was one failure and of loss; But the thing that's so dis tressful Is he could have been successful. But instead of climbing "up," he climbed a cross!" "He was a flop at thirty-three! He jumped from carpentry to preaching to the mob; He just never was adjusted So he spent his whole life busted And he never got promoted on the job!" Is it not wonderful that a church sponsor a play like that? Pieter E.

If the situation continues unaltered, the space administration may soon replace the State Department and the Central Intelligence Agency at the bottom of the capital's credibility list. Newsmen have long contended that the initials NASA stand for "Never A Straight Answer," and on at least one occasion, a high-ranking space official was publicly called to account by a reporter for consistent telling of inconsistent stories. Lately the same complaint W. Hines This is a grave matter, be cause Karth heads a subcom mittee that supervises the sec ond-biggest set of programs in the space effort, those dealing with scientific investiations in space and the profitable public applications of space technolo gy- His tanacity and ferocity in investigating NASA programs in this important field, and his re lentless pursuit of the elusive fact or the evasive official has earned the legislator the nick name "Genghis Karth." Just last week, Karth's subcommittee broke precedent and cut off funds for a project aimed at sending a space probe past Venus in 1967. The reason was clear; Karth and his colleagues simply did not believe what NASA officials told them about the hastily contrived project. In the course of about three weeks of hearings on a $750 million budget plan for space science and applications in Fiscal Year 1967, the Karth subcommittee heard so many inconsist ent stories that finally nothing seemed to ring true. Karth re calls a glaring example in con-ilousv decision. bal gymnastics to justify construction of elaborate and expensive field centers at Houston, Texas, and Cambridge, Mass. The agency's official explanations have roughly the same credibility quotient as a 1928 Florida real estate advertisement. In its dealings with the press, particularly in the manned space flight program, NASA has managed to astonish and outrage even a hard-bitten breed accustomed to expecting the worst of everyone. The agency's obsession with keeping launching dates secret (in a program supposedly without secrets) has engendered in many newsmen an attitude of contempt for "security" that threatens to affect areas, such as the military space program, where secrecy may be a matter of legitimate concern. ; An 18-hour suppression of tape recordings made during the March 16 crisis of Gemini-8 added to the growing store- of journalistic ill-will toward NASA. The decision was made initially by third-and-fourth-echelon officials, but apparently with approval from Washington.
