THE fHAKOS-nnUHt MOORAM FOR LOGANSPOIR 1. An Athquall Civic Onter 2. An Ad.quol. S.wog. Dtipolal Sydm ». Suffiiunl forking Facililitt Focus on Radiation The government o£ Switzerland is re. ported to be thinking about whether to call an international scientific meeting to discuss the extent of .radiation danger resulting from nuclear weapons tests.. The idea is a good one, since there is at present wide disagreement among scientists trained to'evaluate this hazard. Although scientists of many nations have spoken up on the subject, the views expressed range all the way from casual unconcern to the most acute alarm. There is no consensus, thus far, as to how much harm radioactive fallout may do human beings now living and generations as yet unborn. A meeting'of top scientists who would seek to reach at least tentative agreement on this vital matter might be of great benefit to the world. The principal fault one can find with the Swiss plan is that it does not go far enough. Radioactive fallout^as the result of bomb tests is only a part of the danger. The use -of atomic energy in the pro, du'ction of power also results in radioactive waste. Unless such waste is handled wisely, it, too, can become a menace. If an international meeting of scientists is called, in Switzerland or elsewhere, it should delve into the whole broad question of radioactive waste >— from peacetime uses as well as from bombs. This problem is of profound concern to the entire human race. The scientific resources of the world should be directed, without undue delay, toward a solution. A Great Judge The greatest judges are not always on the Supreme Court. The late Chief Justice Arthur T. Vanderbilt of New Jersey was more eminent than many who served on our highest -court, yet-for .some strange reason presidents overlooked him for promotion. Vanderbilt had been New Jersey's chief justice since 1948, and in 1938 he was president o£ the American Bar Association. His great glory lay not in his knowledge of the law's technicalities, or his skill in drawing briefs. He regarded judicial delays as a miscarriage of justice, and he did something about it. Some of his brethren agree in principle, but do nothing about it. Vanderbilt fought for a refirme'd- court system in. New Jersey so successfully that most of the unconscionable delays which litigants experience elsewhere have been eliminated. The old phrase, "Jersey justice," took on new meaning. New Jersey- is thought by many to have now the most efficient court system in the United States. For this Vanderbilt was largely responsible. IN THE PAST One Year Ago Cecil Slusscr, W, route 2, was drowned in Lake Maxinkuckec when' the boat in which he was riding overturned.

Drew Pearson's MERRY-GO-ROUND FORBIDDEN CITY Drew Pearson Says: Law is strict .against any conflict of Interest by Secretary of Treasury; George Humphrey owns steamships and commercial interest* despite Jaw lo contrary; Senators Interested in Humphrey'* operations. WASHINGTON.—The law which governs the office of Secretary- of the Treasury is quite clear and unequivocal that he must not let his private busi ness get mixed up,- even indirectly, with the'public interest. The law states. "No person ap pointed to the office of Secretary of the Treasury or Treasurer shall! directly or indireclly be concerned, or inlerested Jn carrying on the business of trade or commerce, or be the owner in whole or in part of any sea vessel, or the purchase by himself or another in trust for him, any public lands or other public property, or be concerned in the purchase or disposal of any." On page 7 of the annual report of the M. A. Hanna Co., in which Secretary of the Treasury Humphrey continues to own a large bloc of stock, is a picture of one of his company's seagoing vessels. The caption -beside the picture reads: "Arriving at the Philadelphia unloading docks is the Sept lies, carrying nearly 30,000 tons oE iron ore from Quebec j Labrador." On page 6 of the same report is a description of the "Hanna-operated Great Lakes fleet of tea bulk cargo vessels," togelher' with a further description of the Hanna ocean fleet—the Californian and the Hawaiian, which are described as "Converted C-4's," plus other big vessels. . The reason for the law regarding conflict of interest is obvious. The Secretary of the Treasury operates the Coast Guard which has lo do with the safety of these vessels. The C-4's were purchased from the government. Almost everything the Secretary of the Treasury touches, from taxes to shipping, is intimately connected with American business. The Hanna annual report goes on to tell of vast ore holdings and vast operations of "Irade and commerce," in which the Secretary of the Treasury has a direct interest through the retention of his stocks in M. A. Hanna and subsidiaries. Some senators are now concerned over this, apparent conflict of " interest. A list of Humphrey stocks recently supplied the Senate Finance' Committee shows thai lie increased his wealth tremendously by retaining his stocks. How much oE this was clue to over-all inflation, how much to any favoritism, direct or indirect, to his own companies is something some senators want lo investigate. At any rate, here is how Humphrey's stock zoomed in value in the last four years: M. A. llnmiii Co., Ihe parent company of which he was president, was valued at $240,613,344 on Jan. l, 1953, just as Humphrey look office. As of March 32, 1957, its value was $350,(j.'il,95(5. Increased value: $119,010,592. Humphrey owns 67,550 shares of Class A and .Class B stock at $70 and $78, or a total of $5,179,700. Pittsburgh Consolidation Coal— This is the biggest coal company in the world. Us value went from $12G,1«0,704 on Jan. 1, '53, to $368,306,250 on March 12, '57. Total increase: $2<12,145,546. The Secretary of the Treasury owns 20,000 shares al $56.75 or $1,135,000. National Steel Corp. is an affiliate of M. A. Hanna, and is the company which Humphrey will head when he leaves the Treasury. Its value zoomed from $374,758,71.0 when Humphrey took 'office to ?484,9fi2,000, or an increase of $110,203,290. He owns 13,200 shares at $50 or $700,000. Ifanna Coal and' Ore — This is the company which controls iron ore of Canada and the vast Hanna ore holdings. Hanna coal and ore showed the grealest increase of all, jumping from $46,741,500 when Humphrey became Secretary of the Treasury to $441,<un,000 on March 12 of this year. Total appreciation: $394,072,500. Canadian Ore Secretary Humphrey owns 12,471 shares of Hanna coal and ore. This is where he might be most vulnerable to criticism on the charge of mixing, business profit with public interest - On July 31, 1954, Humphrey took lime off from his official duties lo go lo Sepl lies, Quebec, for the opening ceremonies of iron ore of Canada. Addressing Ihe crowd he said: "It is a great day. It is the culmination of a dream o£ 12 years." On Sept. 9, 1954, il was announced in Ottawa that Humphrey and his Canadian associate, C. D. I-lowe, would go to Knob Hill lo open a power dam to supply power for the Hanna iron mines. The Hanna company then began to solicit British business. In October of that same year, C. Reginald Wheeler, head of the British Iron and Steel Conp., LTD., came lo Washington. He had come lo the United Stales lo negotiate with a number of American ore companies for shipments lo Eng- iand. It may have been pure conci- dence and there is no evidencn that Humphrey had anything to do with il. but immediately after arriving in ' Washington Wheeler canceled appointments with other ore companies and signed a contract with iron ore of Canada. Gilbert Humphrey and the secretary's law firm worked out the details. Two members of. this law firm, Chapman Rose and Nelson Rose, al various times have held high positions in the treasury. Indianapolis Judge Refuses to Quash Doggett Indictment INDIANAPOLIS (UP)—A Criminal Court judge Monday refused to quash the indictment against one- of four persons accused of irregularities in the Indiana highway scandals. Judge Scott McDonald sustained the stale's objections to a plea in abatement filed in behalf of Harry Doggclt, former assislant to Nile Toverbaugh, highway department right-of-way director during ex- Gov. George Craig's administration.- McDonald sel Doggetl's arraignment for Wednesday and indicated the four may go on trial in August or- September, Also indicted on charges of em- be/zlemenl or conspiracy lo embezzle were former highway chairman Virgil (Red) -Smilh, Teverbaugh, and attorney Robert Peak. All three pleaded - innocent. The plea in abatement was on grounds Doggctt was allegedly forced lo testify against himself before the Marion County Grand Jury, whose final report on tho investigation will be made before McDonald Thursday. McDonald, in effect, ruled Dog- gelt could not have been forced to testify against himself before the grand jury. LAFF-A-DAY Angelo Potri Warn Child About Giving Criticism Caroline came home from Ihe parly sniffing and looking ready to burst into tears at the first opportunity. Her mother noticed this but made no re-mark. Finally Caroline could stand it no longer and, sniffing louder and whining a bit, began: "Mabel hurt my feelings." "She did?" "Yes, she did. She said I danced like a cow." Mother laughed. "I don't lliink il was funny. She hurt my feelings something awful," "Caroline. Where did you have your feelings so that Mabel could hurt them. Carrying them on your skin? If you do somebody will always 'be hurting them, and you will always be whining as you are this minute. "ft was rude of Mabel, very bad- mannered indeed, to make a personal remark. Personal remarks are bad tasle. I hope you had- made none lo her. Did you?" "Well-1-1 f only said she was fat." "Then you asked for what you got. Two bad-mannered girls are just thai. Too bad. "But just remember not lo carry your feelings exposed to hurls. Keep them undercover. Control them, if you want people to like you and want you around. Nobody wants a tender-skinned, chip-on- t'he-shouWcr around. So just make no personal remarks and don't be .so easily hurt," Boys and girls in their early teens especially the girls, arc likely to have their "feelings" hurt; and they need no encouragement to suffer. They have lo be taught lo control Ihcir hurts or this sort and loss them off. They 'have the "privilege" to answer back, of cour.se, ancl thai relieves them somewhat; but if they are encouraged lo nurse their hurt feelings, they are inclined to form the habit of exposing their feelings lo such hurts and to enjoy nursing their injuries. This makes for a .most unnlea.'iing kind of personality and so should be discouraged. Sometimes this feeling of injury appears in younger children, resulting in tho "Somebody-is- always-picking-on-me" sort. This is the same feeling thai Ihe early teen-agers have and Is not to be encouraged by sympathy but eliminated by good humor and a spirit of give ancl lake. This needs attention lest a child become ingrown, self-centered and miserable. A little plain talk helps. Then a change of thought by the presentation of a new inlcresl will complete the banishment of the idea for the moment. A funny story that ends in laughter is a great remedy for such situations. We do not laugh enough WITH children and they need that tonic often. All children should be taught early in their careers In avoid making personal remarks, especially critical remarks. * * * A record hook of your child's development is valuable, not only for sentiment, _but for accurate information. It' Is easy to forget dales and incidents Ihat are important. Leaflet P-23, "The Record Book" explains. To obtain a copy, send 10 cents in coin to'him, c/o Dr. Nourse Declares Business and Labor Cause of Inflation WASHINGTON (UP) — Former President Truman's chief economic adviser said today "we should slop passing Ihe buck" to the federal government as the chief cause ol inflation. "Il is much nearer to the truth," he said, "lo say that the real source of inflation" lies with business and labor. The economist, Dr. Edwin G. Nourse, said the Eisenhower administration "has done a good deal toward curbing the inflation whose seeds were sown i:i the war and early postwar period." Nourse made the statements in remarks prepared Tor the opening of a two-day conference sponsored by the Naliona-1 Citizens Committee to Curb Inflation. Paul C. Stark, Uie committee's program director, said tihe conference is intended as a "sounding board" on the cause of iuflaiibn and to detail itie facts "on how 'the fight against inflation, must be waged by the people themselves." Nourse said the Eisenhower administration "has tenaciously resisted lax reduction that would have been inflationary and lias pursued a liglil money policy lihat is counter-inflationary." In addition, he said, President Eisenhower has "pointed lo the responsibility of business management and union labor lo abstain from sowing the seeds of inflation and expecting government to offset liie pressures thus created." Nourse said inflation has been caused mainly by wage and price increases. He sa-id farmers also added to feed the inflationary fire by demanding parity prices for their products. But he sa-id the government also is partly to blame because of such policies as stockpiling of various molals to maintain thoi-r prices, the granting of loans "on artificial• ly easy terms," the huge purchases it makes from industry, and the cosl of Ihe federal payroll. Industry Conference Scheduled July 11-12 BLOOM1NGTON (UP)—J-Ioosier- citios and towns seeking new industries or ways to expar.d present industries have been invited lo send representatives to .a.n Indiana Development Conference July Ilia al Indiana University. Sponsors of the conference are ' the State Department, of Com- mcrcre, Industry, Public Rolalions and Agrricullure; the Inliana Stale Chamber of Commerce and Ihe Indiana University School of Business. Tiie purpose of Hie conference Is to help solve community and slate problems of industrial expansion and lo further development of the industrial resources of Indiana, sponsors said.
