Wednesday Evening, June 19, THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE PROGRAM FOR LOGANSPOKT 1. An Adequate Civic C«it«r 2. An Adtquat* Stwag* Disposal Syxt*m 3. SuHHctnt Parking Factlitivi Mayflower II Mayflower II has made it across the. wide Atlantic. Her voyage was far less dangerous and taxing for those aboard, thanks to modern foods and navigational aids, than in the case of the original crossing 337 years ago. Interest in the 1957 venture is chiefly commercial and historic. This underscores the fact that, although the ships and the voyages they made were superficially much alike, there are profound and essential differences between them. This year the voyage was a kind of gay and pleasant adventure attended by worldwide publicity. The earlier crossing, made in a vessel already the worse for much hard service, was a solemn and hazardous undertaking, a flight of pilgrims who sought freedom to worship in an alien land. Yet the crossing of Mayflower II can be more than a charming bit of hands- across-the-sea propaganda. It can be much more if we make it so. To do that, we must cast back in our minds to that time more than three centuries ago when men and women dared the vast and terrible sea for the sake of what they believed, From that original voyage, and this new reminder of it, we can draw fresh determination and courage for our own continuing battle to maintain and strengthen the basic freedoms. Watch for Children When school lets out, children are scattered over the community like seeds from a bursting seed pod. Their exuberance hurls them pellmcll into the wonderful world of vacation. They are inclined to run and gambol without looking, just for the sake of joyous motion. In this excess of vitality, children • often forget the vital distinction between sidewalks and streets. They are as likely as not to dash across a thoroughfare with no more than a casual glance for traffic. That places a special obligation on the motorist. Even in the dead of winter, when children are far less likely to bo darting .out into the ytreet, every driver wilh the slightest bump of social consciousness kcops a sharp lookout for them. That lookout, .should bo redoubled at this time o£ year. School's out. Children are behaving g;iily, erratically, unprediclnbly —that is, they're acting like children. Mr. Motorist, kc-up your eyes peeled!

A l.o- lianiiporl pump ttuclc iiHHlntud ut the iiceno of tho Fifty Years Ago Drew Pearson'i MERRY-GO-ROUND YOICKS! Drew Pearson says: Nixon- Stassen rivalry gets mixed up in disarmament; GOP aid guard doesn't like Slassen; Russians stole Stassen's proposals while we bickered. WASHINGTON—The blunt, inside fact o£ the disarmament talks is that Russia pumped in and took over much of the U.S. disarmament plan while the United States was bickering over two things: 1. Old guard Bepublican pre- j u d i c e against modern Republican Harold Stassen as the disarmament negotiator. 2. The traditional Dulles determination to put Germany ahead of peace with Russia. The Secretary of State has always bowed from the waist when anything German approaches,, dating from the days when, as attorney for New York banks he urged the American public to invest in now worthless German, bonds. So when re-election-worried Chancellor Adenauer demanded that German unification come before disarmament agreement with Russia, Dulles got jittery. Bickering over SLassen was one of the by-products. In the end it injected American domestic politics into the all-important problem of peace. By injecting it, we let the Russians get world-credit for taking the initiative on something we were the first to propose— banning II-bomb tests. Wo did it secretly, however. The Russians did it publicly. Stansen The Negotiator Inside fact about Harold Stassen 3s that he is an excellent negotiator. He is tough, charming, tireless. He can sit through hours of wrangling and diplomatic abuse, then come back sml'ing with: "All right, now let's gel back to the main point." Ever career diplomats who don't particularly like him admit Slassen has given disarmament a real chance for success. . Hut the more disarmament appears on the verge of success, t.'iu more StasKcn is subject to undercutting at home. Not in years lias an American diplomatic negotiator been subject to .so many leaks. Kvery move thai, might discredit Sla&icn is leaked. If John Foster Dulles has a long talk wilh him during which he voices criticism, it is leaked as a reprimand. Jf SUiNKon steps on Allied Ions it i« leaked thai, lie is a diplomatic bungler. Reason for theso leaks is t|iiilo simple, Slussen stepped on some old guard Iocs and stepped on them hard when he opposed Nixon for Vlee J'resldent last year, furthermore, the old guard known, and Nixon knows, that it' Sla.'Kisn should succeed and become the great achiever of dis- unnameiil, his political star would Morn to dangerous heights. Ho every llrne Hl.astion iippc.'.ir,'i on the verge of success, the boys around Nixon gel. jittery. liig slakes are Involved. Not merely the peace of the world, but tin; Presidential nomination for JlWiO. Thin ought not to be Inie. Peace iihuiild not be mixed up willi politics. Hut it Is. \VJIH Htnmimi ItejirlmiiiHfail? Specifically, Kl.amicn was yaukorl buck from London when wejileni allies claimed he hail gone over their heads and given a "liilkln/; paper" to the KiiHilaiiH. lie had given llio same paper to tins /''rcnch, Krltinfi, and Onrimm, lint they seemed to feel Dial he should talk only to them until the Went litid agreed on a common I'roril. Slnsniin, on the other hiiinl, believed Uial, two powers only hold the key l.o disarmament—the I,'. S. A. mid U.S.K.It. If they can agree, the others will come along. Allied ambiiM.'iudoro promptly protested to .Secretary Dulled Hint .Slnmien had gone over their heaibi. IJullcii protended he knew anthliif. about It and pulled Slanticn lininr. Actually be did know about it. Slim- lien ha<| kept him laformeil on everything, abio had advance ati- Uiiu'll.y from Dull™ to In lie prlvale- ly to Soviet DoleKiilc- /orln. What burned Dulles up wan the way Kliiiitioii allowed himself lo gel caught. While SLiiNiion wan earoiite home, thu Kecrelnry of Hlntii went to mm President. Klsonhowor, dlHcuimeil with him whether SUiimeii should IT ISN'T 5POWT/MC- TO SHOOT -rtHETDX —WE. T THE DOGS WOTO* MI be fired. The President has a high opinion of Stassen's negotiating ability, but ducked any decision. He left tho matter up to Dulles. There followed a 90-minute session between Dulles and Stassen. This gave rise to reports that Stassen was reprimanded. In a sense; he was, in a sense ho was net. During the long talk, Stnsson spelled out to Dulles everything he had done in London and showed him that he hadn't said a word lo Ihe Kussians that had not been authorized from Washington. Dulles, in the end, concurred, sent him back to London. But, during all thin bickering, the Russians got the Jump on us. Hardly had Stassen unpacked Ills 8tiilea.se than Soviet De-legate Zorln publicly popped the American plnn of a moratorium on if-bomb lesls. Xorin went further. He proposed two to throe years. lilassen had proposed one year. Zcrin did not, .however, go for Slassen'.s idea of a .start toward the banning of nil alomie weapon, 1 ! production, which Ihe Pentagon considers all-Important. Most Important of nil, as seen through this confusion of diplomatic double-talk, Is Hint Ihe Russians have come a long, long way toward disarmament. The reasons why w"l ho discussed In a future column. Hut If we can ri«e iilwvu political bickering lit homes, and diplomatic bickering abroad, there :m»y he » real chance for a start toward peaeu.

Japanese Premier Nobusuke Kishi is to arrive in the capital on Wednesday for three days of talks with President Eisenhower and Secretary of State John Foster Dulles. His visit comes at a moment •when trade with Communist China, the proposed suspension of nuclear weapons tests and the status of American troops in Japan are getting headlines. But the diminutive, hard-working keen-witted Japanese leader will discuss wilh Eisenhower and Dulles the whole range of Japanese- American relations and problems concerning the whole Far East. It is pretty certain, though it will not be announced, that Ohe eventual recognition of Communist China by the United States and Japan and the future of the Chinese Nationalist government in Formosa will be important topics for discussion. Committed To West There is every reason to believe the conference will strengthen Japanese-American relations. Kishi is firmly committed to a pro-United Stales, pro-Western policy. He is aware, however, that Japan not on'.y is a leading Far F-astern powor but is re-assuming its place as a world power. As a Japanese, he must avoid giving his political opponents any opportunity for an accusation that is making Japan an American satellite. As the leader of his country's !H) million people lie must also raise a number of issues which concern Japan and Uio United Stales. Kishi wants lo increase Japanese* trade with Red China. China is potentially Japan's biggest market, but Kishi wants to make the increase in agreement with the United States, not arbitrarily as Britain did. He does not intend lo bring up the case of William S. Girard, the American soldier accused of killing a Japanese woman on an Army firing range in japan. But he intends to discuss broader issues of the present "status of forces" agreement, for instance the right of One American command to move troops at will anywhere in Japan. Kishi intend* also to ask tiiat Japan be given some voice in the administration of Okinawa, which now is the chief American military base in the Far East. Eventually, lie wants Okinawa handed back to Japan. Urge Nuclear Pact Japan's trade with the United Stales, which some American industrialists want lo restrict sharply to protect their own products, will be another poinl for discussion. Kishi is certain to urge earnestly that the United Stales work oul an agreement with Soviet Russia and Britain for the banning of nuclear weapons tests. Japan is caught between Ru&sia on one side and tho United Stales and Britain on th» other as regards the present testing grounds for more powerful nuclear weapons. But he may also ask that t.h» United Stales supply Japan's new army wilh tactical atomic weapons. He said recently that in this day of scientific-development. Japan cannot defend ilself with bamboo spears. There is one good augury for Kishi's visit—lie shares Eisenhower's enthusiasm for golf and will play a round with the President on'his first day in Washington.
