Suffiic.nt Forking Ficilrriu We Need Schools at Lowest Cost The explanation of the need for the cumulative school building fund increase as shown by Supt, of Schools Charles Sharp, and printed on Page 1 of this issue, points up the need for early and definite action. If Mr. Sharp is correct in his statement that the increase recommended will do the job without later bonding, and we feel sure his analysis is correct, then We can see no justifiable reason for refusing the increase and forcing the taxpayers of Logansport to pay more than double- the cost by going to a bonding method of financing. •Money in the cumulative building fund should be left to accumulate for the sole purpose of building, and should not be used for boilers and repair items as has been done frequently in the past. If the money is left to accumulate for the purpose intended, there will be sufficient funds to build the schools we need at the lowest possibJe cost, without going to a bond issue or building corporation which will result in the taxpayers paying approximately double the actual cost because of interest and fees. Either way, the taxpayer will foot the bill—a reasonable bill or one double the amount. We suggest that all taxpayers Interested make their desires known to every member of the school board within the next few days, because approximately one more week is the deadline for any possible action on the increase by the school board. Life Extension Not many years have passed since Stoppage of the human heart for just a few seconds meant certain death. Delegates to the annual meeting of the American College of Chest Physicians in New York City heard a report which evidenced what tremendous advancement has heen made in treatment of this most vital organ. Dr. Albert E. Gross, professor of children's surgery at the Harvard Medical School, said the heart can be stopped with safety an average of 40 minutes during surgical operations. Dr. P. Mason Sones, Jr., of the Cleveland Clinic reported that in a series of operations on 80 patients, agr.-d from three months to 55 years, there have been stoppages for period.-; up to 58 rninulea. Such reports underscore the value we nil derive from the teamwork of research men and skilled practitioners. Those are the twin pillars on which scientific progress rnuKt re.'; I.

HE MIGHT REFUSE TO ANSWER, TOO Drew Pearson says: Japanese Premier will make blunt demands of Ike; The Atlas was destroyed by ground officer for fear it would go off course; Republicans are getting more money than chairman Alcon seems to realize. WASHINGTON - For the first time in history, either before or after Pearl Harbor, a Japanese Premier meets this week with a President of the United States.' ' The man who sits down on one side of the desk commanded Allied forcers during the war. The man on the other side of the table was Minister of Commerce and the Interior in the Cabinet of Japan's War Lord, General Tojo. For this he .was arrested as a war criminal, but released when it was discovered that he had led a peace movement against Tojo in 1943, one year after Pearl Harbor. After that experience, Nobusuke Kishi said: "When I found that I was not to be tried, I began to think ot the rest of my life as a bonus to be spent vvi.sely. I decided Japan must have real democracy and never again adopt Dictatorship." As Prime Minister, Kishi is endeavoring to live up to that promise. He is a tough, hard-working, fast-talking politician who be- lieve.s In Japanese-American friendship, but also believes that Japan can't play second fiddle to any nation. Ambassador Douglas MacArlhur flew back to Washington in advance of the Premier to warn the While House that Kishi would make such unpopular demands a.i the end of H-bomb tests in the Pacific and the return of Okinawa to Japan despite ill importance to the U. S. A. A.s a military base, and would warn that Japan was resuming trade with Ilcd China on a large scale. Chancellor Konrad Adcnauar, head of another nation defeated in war, talked tough to Eisenhower last month. Premier Ki.'ihi is cxpifcled to talk equally ^taigh.

Because of American "Big Stick" tactics, Premier Laurent of Canada asked for a treaty by which future disputes could be decided by International Law, especially the rJver flow between Canada and the Unitttd States. Ho proposed applying the Common Law of England that no man living beside a river may damngcj the flow to the detriment of those downstream. But the United Slntos was then Interested in tho Rio Grande flowing from the United Slates into Mexico, It wanted to be iMu to divert water from the Rio Grande before It reached Mexico. Therefore, Jud.'ion Harmon, Attorney General under Tuft, contended that the United Slates had Iho rlghl to divert, the flow of tho Kin Grande and every other International river. Premier Luurent put up u bitter Imllla, but loot. "The rules, principles, und precedents of Intornallonuil La.w Impose no liability or obligation upon the United States," ruled Tafl'.i attorney general, .So Canada signed the Treaty nl 1'MI.

His \ brother later ex-1 plained: "Jimmy I is a perfectionist. He doesn't play anything unless lie can do it backwards first." During their personal wars, Tommy retained the deepest respect for his brother's musical ability. "There isn't anyone," he once said, "who can hold my brother's horn. He can play anyone off a bandstand." When Glenn Miller heard that comment be remarked prophetically: "Someday those two guys will get back together. Elood is thicker than swing." No wonder the original Dorsey band had the nation swinging mid dancing. In addition to Tommy nnd Jimmy, il. included n youngster playing second trombone and arranging named Glenn Miller. On the trumpets were Bunny Borigim and Charlie Spiviik. Ray MncKin- ley was on the drums and vocalist was Boh Crosby. The Horsey legacy is priceless: Benutiful music and warm memories.

Sha originally fell in love with him as a result of her intense admiration for his skill as a film director. They made five flickers together—all [lops. Consequently, they had an artistic separation. Ingrid went lo Paris and triumphed in "Anastasia" and "Tea and Sympathy." Kossellini went to India—and endangered their marriage.

Intensive preparation is a major factor in superior acting- And there are no limits lo the extent of the preparation. Sir Laurenco Olivier reached a twinkling pinnacle with his performance in "Hamlet."
